Not so long ago it would have been hard to imagine thousands of marchers worshipping the bravery of a far-right troublemaker convicted of contempt of court after risking the collapse of a trial. Since then, Robinson has continued his crusade against “mainstream journalists”, the political establishment, British courts and minority communities.

LONDON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump's former adviser Steve Bannon believes now is the time for Boris Johnson to challenge British Prime Minister Theresa May for her job, the Daily Telegraph newspaper reported on Saturday. Johnson, who led the main Brexit campaign in the 2016 referendum, resigned as foreign minister on Monday over May's strategy which he said was killing the “Brexit dream” with self-doubt. “Theresa May has got a lot of great qualities – I am not sure if it is the right leader at the right time,” Bannon, Trump's former strategist and a key player in his 2016 election campaign, was quoted by the Daily Telegraph as saying. May's government was rattled by the departures

Donald Trump has warned Theresa May that her Brexit plan could “kill” any US-trade deal because it would leave the UK closely aligned to the EU. The US President claimed he offered the Prime Minister advice which she turned down and said he “would have done Brexit differently”, in an interview with the Sun. In the interview released while Mr Trump and First Lady Melania were being entertained by the Prime Minister at Blenheim Palace, the president said: "If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the UK, so it will probably kill the deal.
The explosive hearing on Capitol Hill with disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok came to a brief halt on Thursday as Democrats unsuccessfully tried to change the subject to a discussion about holding ex-White House aide Steve Bannon in contempt for not answering questions from lawmakers earlier this year. California Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell made the motion to subpoena President Trump's former adviser after House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., threatened to proceed with a contempt citation for Strzok if he continued to refuse to answer questions Thursday about the FBI's Russia investigation. “I move to subpoena Steve Bannon,” Swalwell interjected, amid a heated back-and-forth between
FBI agent Peter Strzok's Capitol Hill reckoning descended into a bacchanalia on Thursday. After House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) threatened to hold Strzok in contempt for refusing to answer questions related to the Russia investigation, a Democratic congressman interrupted the hearing to move to subpoena Steve Bannon. “I move to subpoena Steve Bannon!” chimed Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.). Bannon had also refused to answer questions that were not pre-approved by the White House when he testified before the House Intelligence committee in February. Swalwell's interruption, it seemed, was to point out Goodlatte's hypocrisy of holding Strzok in contempt, while also initially refusing
LONDON – A day before President Donald Trump's arrival here, leaders of Europe's rough-edged populist movement quietly filed into a five-star hotel in London's Mayfair district, unnoticed by summer tourists enjoying their clotted cream. Louis Aliot, a right-wing French politician and boyfriend of the French populist firebrand Marine Le Pen, walked through the lobby to a conference room tucked away behind the restaurant serving afternoon tea. So did Nigel Farage, the right-wing British politician and Brexit mastermind whom the local tabloids say is “banned” by his government from meeting with President Donald Trump during his visit.

By James Cogan 11 July 2018 Stephen Bannon, the ultra-nationalist demagogue central to the 2016 US election campaign of Donald Trump, has hailed the passage of new “foreign interference” laws in Australia as critical to the escalating US offensive against Chinese “influence” in Asia and the world. Believed to still be in regular contact with the American president, Bannon gloated that the Trump administration had “started a war” with China on July 6, when it imposed huge tariffs on Chinese goods. Bannon's remarks make clear why the Liberal-National Party Coalition government and the Labor Party have gone to such efforts to keep the Australian population ignorant of the agenda behind the new legislation,
