Theresa May, Facing Hard Deadline, Struggles to Navigate Treacherous #Brexit Politics as U.K. ⁦@Conservatives⁩ gather with party torn over what to do about it. Our report via ⁦…
Six months before #Brexit, nobody knows how it will happen. “We’re in a bit of a dangerous position,” said Nick Timothy, May's former chief of staff. “It feels like absolutely anything is possible, from staying in after all to departure without a deal..."…
A no-deal #Brexit deal means serious immediate economic disruption with ports clogging with trucks awaiting customs clearance. The UK is unprepared, but #EU countries too are uniformly unready for a no-deal exit, a recent “stress test” of the members found…
May only set the UK red lines in 2016 to shore up her position in the party, and was then surprised by #EU reactions, officials said. She even asked envoys to tell European officials she hadn’t decided on a hard line, nor to leave the Single Market. @WSJ…
But while @theresa_may is ridiculed as dithering Maybot at home, she earned the respect of leaders for facing down @realDonaldTrump at #G7 and @NATO summits. May told him both EU & NATO crucial for the interests of the US & Britain. Via @WSJ…
May told Trump "bluntly and in no uncertain terms that he was wrong about @NATO as well as the #EU,” a former British official said. #Merkel’s opinion of the British premier rose, said German officials. Via @WSJ…
Mrs. May “doggedly gets on with it,” said @AlanDuncanMP , a senior official in the foreign affairs ministry and a friend of 40 years. “She’s unemotional and just proceeds.”…
May's seen as a dithering and robotic leader but lack of emotion seems to be a strength in some circumstances: she was the only leader to stand up to Trump at international summits, and, paradoxically, defend the #EU. @WSJ…

Short thread about this Steve #Bannon interview about his efforts to support rightwing populists in Europe that is exciting a lot of people here. @guyverhofstadt even came up with #BanBannon hashtag…
Bannon wants to unite Europe's rightwing populists/far-Right & nationalist groups into coherent political force. He's setting up a foundation, which he compares to @georgesoros network, to help them with funding. But he'll only have up to 10 employees & no serious cash.
Europe's rightwing populists have tried to unite before, notably in the @Europarl_EN, but not with great success, bc their policies pose a structural problem for a pan-European movement. Often their debates descended into insult-laden quarrels.

My dispatch from #Sweden, which is experiencing an unprecedented surge in shootings, bombings and sexual crime. The crisis is mainly restricted to areas predominantly populated by immigrants, so ordinary Swedes read the news with disbelief:…
In #Sweden, a country of 10m people, more than 320 shootings and dozens of bombings were reported in 2017, along with more than 110 murders and 7,226 rapes — a 10% increase on 2016. More than 36% of young Swedish women say they feel unsafe at night.…
I visited some of the worst areas, including #Malmö's #Rosengård, where children as young as 14 roam the streets with Kalashnikovs & bulletproof vests. The average age of gang members is 22, the vast majority of them hailing from migrant families.…
