Punishing UK for Brexit is 'language of a gang' - trade minister Fox

Just under a quarter of people (24%) are not happy with how the government is handling Brexit while 32% of people said they didn't know. Everyone involved in the talks say a hard border is not what they want but how to avoid that is proving a conundrum given that May has said the United Kingdom will leave the single market and customs union.

"I do object in the strongest terms to people who have limited experience of the troubles in Northern Ireland throwing threats of violence around as some kind of bargaining chip", Foster said.

While speaking at the British Chambers of Commerce annual conference in London earlier this week, Mrs Foster said: "The commission's draft text is entirely unacceptable and actually represents an act of bad faith on the part of Brussels towards addressing the challenges facing the border in a fair and sensible fashion".

"As is always the case and this is true for any politicians or anyone in any walk of life you can read as many briefing documents as you like sometimes you need to see things with your own eyes, and I think for that reason, they would be very welcome to visit the Border and see it for themselves". And then what do you do? Do you accept that, or do you then put in a guard to stop them doing that.

She claimed that experts had been wrong to expect the economy to go into a "tailspin of depression".

He says he's disappointed the U.S. is no longer a leader in the gay rights campaign.

Vice President Pence contests the charge that he is in favour of conversion therapy to change someone's sexual orientation.

Speaking from the USA, where he is conducting a series of St Patrick's Day engagements, the Taoiseach said: "No, it is not a solution that we envisage". "This is where the LGBT movement began, the first place where gay people fought back".
