Just when you think hardline Remainers couldn’t get any more bonkers, it now emerges that former Prime Minister Tony Blair has been in contact with French President Emmanuel Macron when it comes to trying to kill off Brexit.

Over the weekend the Sunday Times had quoted a source on Blair’s contact with Macron: “He’s saying, ‘You’ve got to hold firm and then we’ll end up staying’.”

The Telegraph have also had it confirmed by those in France that Blair has been in contact with Macron.

Blair had previously told Euronews: “I don’t disclose the people I speak to because that should remain private between me and the leaders I talk to.

“But I think it’s very obvious…I need to get the European leaders to the next stage which is to realise that the probability is it’s going to happen and they’ve got to prepare for it.”

The former PM has also previously wrote in the German media alongside Nick Clegg and Lord Heseltine, urging European leaders to give them more time to stop Brexit.

Last October they co-authored a piece that said: “Our domestic debate is far from over and, even at this late hour, many of us are continuing to make the case that the British public need to make the final decision once we are in possession of all the relevant facts.”

Just last week there were also reports that hardline Remainer MP Dominic Grieve was meeting members of Macron’s French government.

Pro-Brexit MP Peter Bone has reacted furiously: “It is totally unacceptable for a former Prime Minister to go around the heads of European countries and undermine the Government’s position. I’m not sure we could find another time in modern history when this has happened.

“Tony Blair has to realise he has had his time as Prime Minister and I’m surprised and disappointed he has done this. I doubt he would have liked it if his predecessors had done this to him.”

The French President has repeatedly attacked Brexit, most recently saying: “The trap is not being part of the European Union. The trap is in the lie and the irresponsibility that can destroy it. Who told the British people the truth about their post-Brexit future?

“Who spoke to them about losing access to the European market? Who mentioned the risks to peace in Ireland of restoring the former border? Nationalist retrenchment offers nothing; it is rejection without an alternative. And this trap threatens the whole of Europe: the anger mongers, backed by fake news, promise anything and everything.”

This international interference comes despite Macron having a poor domestic disapproval rating that hit 76%, and 40% of French voters now wanting to leave the European Union themselves.

Hardline British Remainers working with anti-Brexit forces to try and overturn the referendum result. Truly disgraceful.

Tony Blair has been accused of “unacceptable” behaviour after it emerged he has been briefing Emmanuel Macron on how to force Britain to stay in the EU.

The former Labour prime minister believes that if the EU stands its ground over the Brexit deal, Parliament will cave in and accept a customs union - which would keep Britain yoked to Brussels - or a second referendum that could cancel Brexit altogether.

Sources in Paris confirmed to The Telegraph that Mr Blair had been speaking to the French President about Brexit.

He is reported to have told Mr Macron to “hold firm” and wait for events to play out in London that end in Britain staying in the EU.

Breakaway MPs hope that smearing Corbyn will obscure the fact that they are remnants of an old political order bankrupt of ideas

The Independent

A Labour MP who told Jeremy Corbyn to “sit down and shut up” as he spoke about the Iraq War in the House of Commons has been accused of “thuggish” behaviour.

Ian Austin heckled the Labour leader during his speech following the publication of the Chilcot report during which he apologised on behalf of the party for taking Britain to war.

Mr Corbyn called the war an “act of military aggression, launched on a false pretext” and said the subsequent “colonial-style occupation” led to the rise of Isis.

But Mr Austin told Mr Corbyn to “shut up” and shouted “you’re a disgrace” until the Speaker, John Bercow, intervened.

Gavin Newlands, the Scottish Nationalist MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire, tweeted it was a “typically pathetic and thuggish heckle” during what he called “Corbyn’s fantastic dissection of Blair’s lies and deceit”.

Former Channel 4 Economics Editor Paul Mason called Mr Austin a “warmonger” and noted he had opposed the setting up of an inquiry into the war.

Mr Austin actually voted against the inquiry the first time eight times the subject came before the Commons but eventually voted in favour of the Chilcot inquiry set up by then Prime Minister Gordon Brown in June 2009 along with the majority of Labour MPs, according to TheyWorkForYou. He was not an MP in 2003.

Columnist Owen Jones also waded into the argument calling Mr Austin an “astonishingly unpleasant person” and “a bully”.

He later asked his Twitter followers to stop sending abuse Mr Austin, saying his “calling out Ian Austin’s unpleasant behaviour isn’t an excuse for people to be abusive to him”.

Other Twitter users accused Mr Austin of being “rude”:

Mr Austin, a former key supporter of Mr Brown, has heavily criticised Mr Corbyn in the past.

In an article for The Times commenting on the furore, he said: “The Chilcot Report will never settle arguments about whether the war was right or wrong, but it should lay to rest allegations about bad faith, lies or deceit."

He said there was “no justification for saying evidence was ‘confected’” as he said Mr Corbyn had suggested in the Commons.

“To listen to Tony Blair’s critics, you would think that Iraq had been a peaceful haven of tranquillity before 2003. Nothing could be further from the truth," he continued.

“Of course we must learn the lessons of mistakes made after the invasion of Iraq, but we must also learn the lessons of not taking action too.”

He concluded: “Thirty years in protest movements and meetings where everyone agrees with him mean Jeremy has never had to think about complex problems and difficult solutions, which is why he is struggling to lead a mainstream political party, let alone persuade people to see him as their prime minister.

The Independent has sought to contact Mr Austin for comment.

Former Prime Minister Sir John Major has made yet another anti-Brexit intervention, describing some European Research Group MPs within the Conservative Party as being “extreme” and labelling them “zealots” whilst speaking out on former UKIP members joining the party. Just like Tony Blair, Sir John increasingly comes across as an out-of-touch figure trying to cling on to the past.

Speaking at a lecture delivered in Glasgow yesterday, he said of the new influx of pro-Brexit members in the Tory Party: “The rationale for extremists joining mainstream parties is logical: from within them, they can influence policy; from without, they very rarely can.

“At the moment, there are people who – for now – may have their boots within the Conservative or Labour parties – but not in their minds, nor their hearts.

“The Conservative Party membership appears to be ‘hollowing out’ traditional Conservatives, while former UKIP members strengthen the anti-European Right of the party.”

When it comes to pro-Brexit MPs in Parliament such as Jacob Rees-Mogg and Steve Baker, Sir John clearly isn’t a fan: “In Parliament, the European Research Group has become a party within a party, with its own whips, its own funding and its own priorities.

“Some of its more extreme members have little or no affinity to moderate, pragmatic and tolerant Conservatism.

“The ERG does not represent a majority view but – with a minority government, as now – can determine policy simply by being intransigent: which is precisely what it is doing.

“Some – who can fairly be called zealots – seem incapable of looking beyond the one issue of Europe.

“It’s not just that it dominates their thinking – it seems to obsess them.”

And he spoke positively of the second referendum-supporting MPs who have quit Labour: “Yesterday, seven moderate MPs left the Labour Party. I admire their courage and their conviction. But I hope they have not cut themselves adrift forever.

“Labour needs moderate MPs, and the country needs a moderate Labour Party.”

The Conservative grassroots are not overwhelmingly pro-Brexit, with two-thirds preferring a WTO Brexit to the deal Theresa May brought back from the table.

Instead, Sir John Major spoke out in favour of revoking Article 50 completely. Popular Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg has previously accused the former PM of making “cheap comments and propaganda”.

Most sensible Conservatives must surely be happy to have an influx of new members and MPs representing the mainstream pro-Brexit view. Sir John Major, as with Tony Blair, needs to accept that British politics has moved on.

It has been claimed that the German government have been spoon-fed rubbish by anti-Brexit former Prime Minister Tony Blair, who has been briefing about a second referendum.

Yesterday on BBC’s Newsnight, Nick Watt explained the German position: “They think there are the signs of change in Berlin, because over there they’ve been listening to Tony Blair who’s been telling them ‘there will be a second referendum’.

“That is now much less likely, so they are now beginning to contemplate No Deal.”

He went on to say that Angela Merkel is clearly “absolutely decisive” when it comes to the EU side of negotiations but that when it comes to advice “they’ve basically been listening to Tony Blair and there’s a question mark about how credible he is”.

A no-deal Brexit would lead to "potentially devastating" consequences for the peace process in Northern Ireland, according to former prime minister Tony Blair.

In a wide-ranging interview with Sky News' Sophy Ridge, the ex-Labour Party leader warned of a hard border if the UK leaves the EU without agreements in place for what the future relationship will look like.

He dismissed Brexiteer claims that leaving with no deal would not be detrimental to Britain's economy.

Mr Blair told Sky News: "No one could responsibly propose this [a no-deal Brexit]. It would be economically very, very dangerous for Britain and for the peace process in Northern Ireland, it would potentially be devastating.

"We would have a hard border, a very hard border, no-deal Brexit means a really hard border between the north and south of Ireland, contrary to the Good Friday Agreement and it would cause an enormous fissure within the United Kingdom."

He accused politicians of behaving recklessly over the issue of the Northern Ireland peace process.

He said: "They've been playing fast and loose with it from the beginning.

"There's people who cheerfully say you can put the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland in a completely different relationship with Europe, in trading terms, and it makes no difference to the economy of Northern Ireland - I don't know on what basis they would possibly say that."

The former politician, who has called for a second referendum on Brexit, said the country needed to decide whether it wanted a soft or hard departure from the bloc.

"I've never thought you could get to another referendum going directly to it - you'll get to it when the people see what the true Brexit alternatives are and the truth is there are two," he said.

"You can have the soft Brexit, which is really what Jeremy Corbyn is suggesting, or you could have the hard Brexit that Boris Johnson, Nigel Farage and other people want.

"And what I've really been saying all the way through this process is you've got to decide which of those Brexits you want before we leave - otherwise, we're going to leave without clarity."

He said leaving without clarity meant "no closure" for the country, leaving the argument to rage on long after the UK leaves the EU.

"By then you'll have left paid your money up front and you'll have given up your negotiating leverage," he said. "For the country to do that, as Theresa May wants to do - to leave without knowing what Brexit you get - this would be, in my view, an incredibly foolish thing for the country to do.

"It's got to know where we're heading before we leave."

He later turned to the issue of antisemitism in the Labour Party and admitted there were "parts of the left that do have a problem with antisemitism".

"You see this in their attitudes to the state of Israel," said Mr Blair. "You can make all sorts of criticisms about the state of Israel but with their continual focusing on Israel, all the time over a long period, you're left with the feeling that they're in a sense targeting it because it is a Jewish state."

He said Labour leadership had "not been robust enough on this".

"Can you imagine when I was leader of the Labour Party having a conversation with me about whether antisemitism was in the Labour Party or not?" he asked. "We wouldn't even have that conversation and there is, I'm afraid, a nascent alliance between what I would call bits of the sort of Islamist type of politics and the left.

"And you can see this not just here in the UK, you can see it across Europe and yes, it gives rise to antisemitism... it's not your traditional antisemitism of the right-wing nature but it's every bit as pernicious."

Countdown star Rachel Riley and Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling’s agent are teaming up with advisers from Tony Blair’s Government to launch a breakaway Labour Party within weeks.

The plotters, led by Blair’s former Chief of Staff, Jonathan Powell, addressed about 50 ‘potential supporters of a new political movement’ to stop Jeremy Corbyn getting the keys to No 10, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

The secret meeting on Tuesday night was held in the Central London offices of Ms Rowling’s agent, Neil Blair, where Powell and former Blair speechwriter Philip Collins delivered plans for a new pro-European centrist party.

The proposed party does not yet have a leader but there was rapturous applause after one audience member called for Ms Rowling to take charge. She is a noted Labour supporter and donor – but also an outspoken critic of Corbyn.

Powell and Collins told guests over drinks and canapes that they aim to launch the party later this year, following Britain’s EU exit on March 29. They claimed their yet-to-be-named party could eventually win up to 100 seats.

The pair also raised the running sore of anti-Semitism in Labour, which was cited as a key reason behind the planned breakaway.

At the meeting were Ms Riley and former EastEnders star Tracy Ann Oberman, who have both been attacked by Labour supporters for criticising Corbyn’s handling of the anti-Semitism crisis.

Oxford-educated Ms Riley, who is Jewish, revealed last month that her Channel 4 bosses ordered extra protection after she publicly criticised Corbyn and received threats from his hard- Left followers.

After the rebels’ meeting, one source said: ‘There was a presentation which lasted for about 45 minutes and was followed by a Q&A. The organisers emphasised the need for a charismatic leader for the party to succeed. But they made it clear they are unsure who that is at the moment. One attendee suggested J. K. Rowling – which got a large round of applause.

‘They emphasised that a new centrist movement has the opportunity to attract people with a more nuanced approach to politics and life – and that is why they believe they can succeed where the SDP failed.’

The Social Democratic Party was formed in 1981 by four senior Labour moderates and eventually merged with the Liberal Party.

The invitation to Tuesday’s meeting declared: ‘We are hosting a drinks reception at 7pm on Tuesday 5th February for potential supporters of a new political movement that Britain desperately needs. This is an initiative led by Jonathan Powell and Philip Collins. Britain is stuck. The promise that the next generation will be better off than their parents is broken. Inequality is tearing the country apart.

‘Housing is too expensive, earnings are static and the quality of work is too poor for too many. The world is changing fast and we’re retreating from it… the old parties cannot face the future because they have run out of answers, energy and leadership.

‘That is why Jonathan and Philip are building a new political movement to move Britain on to a better politics.’

Ms Rowling is a friend of former Labour Prime Minister Gordon Brown and donated £1 million to the party in 2008. However, she has used social media to mock Corbyn’s position on Brexit.

Tony Blair has advised those going to the polls to consider voting for the Conservatives or Liberal Democrats in order to weaken the Prime Minister’s mandate for a hard Brexit.

The former Prime Minister said it was important to vote for candidates who had an “open mind” on the final deal and that people should not limit their votes to just Labour because the issue was “bigger than party allegiance”.

He also praised Theresa May, arguing: “She’s very sensible, she’s a very decent person, she’s very solid, I agree with a lot she says.”

Mr Blair has previously admitted that he “wouldn’t want to win on an old-fashioned leftist platform” like Jeremy Corbyn’s, “even if I thought it was the route to victory”.

Speaking on Sunday on the BBC’s The World This Weekend programme he said: “The absolutely central question at this general election is less who is the prime minister on 9 June, and more what is the nature of the mandate.

“Otherwise frankly this is a steamroller election – is it possible that we can return as many members of parliament as possible to parliament that are going to keep an open mind on this Brexit negotiation until we see the final terms.”

Asked whether this political approach could mean voting Liberal Democrat, Mr Blair replied: “What I’m advocating may mean that. It may mean voting Labour. It may mean, by the way, that they vote Tory, for candidates who are prepared to give this commitment.”

“This is something that’s bigger than party allegiance, in this particular election.”

The former Prime Minister said candidates should be asked whether they backed Brexit “at any cost” or whether they were prepared to say any final deal was not in the interests of the country.

Mr Blair’s advice comes despite Ms May suggesting that votes for the Conservatives are an indication of the country “coming together” behind her Brexit plan.

He said that he personally “will always vote Labour”.

The former PM’s comments provoked anger on social media, with some Labour members suggesting he be ejected from the party for backing rival candidates. Matt Zarb-Cousin, a former spokesperson for Jeremy Corbyn, said Mr Blair “should be kicked out of the party”.

Labour’s rulebook states that “a member of the party who joins and/or supports a political organisation other than an official Labour group or other unit of the party, or supports any candidate who stands against an official Labour candidate, or publicly declares their intent to stand against a Labour candidate, shall automatically be ineligible to be or remain a party member”.

One Labour source poured derision on Mr Blair’s comments, telling The Independent that “voting for the Lib Dems because you’re unhappy with Brexit is like voting for them because you don’t like tuition fees”.

Mr Blair also hinted at the possibility of a political return. He said: “I look at the British political scene at the moment and I actually almost feel motivated to go right back into it.”

A spokesperson for Jeremy Corbyn said: “On 9 June, we will either have a Labour government or a Tory one.

“If you want Brexit to be used to turn Britain into a low-wage tax haven, vote Tory. If you want a Britain for the many not the few after Brexit, vote Labour. The choice is clear.”

The anti-Brexit People’s Vote march was just one-third of the size organisers claimed, it has been revealed.

The group, which pushes for a second referendum, claimed that 700,000 people marched on London on October 20th, 2018, but Scotland Yard confirmed to The Telegraph that the estimate is closer to 250,000.

“The Greater London Authority (GLA) has included an estimated attendance figure of 250,000 in a debrief document,” Scotland Yard said in a statement to the conservative newspaper following a Freedom of Information request.

“Please note this is not a Metropolitan Police Service estimate as we have not recorded an estimated attendance figure for the march,” the police force added.

The People’s Vote, launched in April 2018 by Remainer MPs Chuka Umunna (Labour), Anna Soubry (Conservative), and Caroline Lucas (Green), is supported by many of the key players in the Tony Blair-backed Remain continuity campaign Open Britain and pushed for a “public vote” on the final Brexit deal — i.e., a second referendum.

Labour’s London mayor Sadiq Khan, who spoke at the march and hailed it a “historic moment in our democracy,” oversees the GLA.

The People’s Vote claims its wildly inaccurate estimations were “based on intelligence from both volunteers and professional stewards.”

Leave Means Leave co-chairman Richard Tice said of the revelation, “As we knew at the time, People’s Vote lied about its march size, [and it] appears [the] GLA covered up the truth. Did Mayor Khan know of cover up? Enquiry needed.”

Former UKIP leader and MEP Nigel Farage said, “People’s Vote lied about the number of supporters at their rally in London. Hardly surprising, the pro-EU lobby have been lying to us for over 50 years.”

Meanwhile, a petition pushing for the UK to leave the EU in a clean break has reached more than 300,000 signatures.

MPs are set to return to Parliament next week to debate Prime Minister Theresa May’s Withdrawal Agreement, with a vote slated for the week beginning January 14th. Dubbed “the worst deal in history” by Mr Farage, should it be voted down the legal default is a no-deal Brexit where the UK would leave on March 29th without a deal.

The UK would then trade with the bloc on World Trade Organization terms — the same as she trades with the rest of the world — and can immediately begin signing new, ambitious bilateral trade agreements with countries like the United States without having to be locked into regulatory alignment with the bloc during a near-two year transition period.

Some folks in Scotland are angry enough to leak to the Guardian what many of us already suspected. The Lockerbie bomber was released only with our approval--grudgingly given perhaps--but given nevertheless.

Barack Obama is under growing pressure to release a letter that reveals the US grudgingly supported freeing the Lockerbie bomber on compassionate grounds.

The letter was sent to Scottish ministers by a senior diplomat at the US embassy in London last August, eight days before Abdelbaset al-Megrahi was released from prison because he was dying from inoperable prostate cancer.

Obama's administration has refused to allow publication of the letter, in which the US says allowing Megrahi to live at home in Scotland would be "far preferable" to sending him back to Libya under the prisoner transfer deal brokered by former prime minister Tony Blair in 2007.

Although Megrahi was allowed to go home to die in Tripoli, Scottish officials believe this undermines Obama's vigorous criticisms of the decision to free Megrahi earlier this month, when he said he was left "surprised, disappointed and angry" by the Libyan's release. David Cameron said he and Obama were in "violent agreement" that freeing Megrahi was a bad decision.

Actually, I thought the Guardian story today was old news. I wrote about this last year. Twice.

Richard Baehr adds: It looks like, to use a Kohn Kerryism, Obama and BP were allies, before they were foes.

David Miliband earned £646,710 ($838,903) basic salary as CEO of the International Rescue Committee (IRC)

David Miliband is said to be making a return from America to British politics amid growing speculation that a new centrist party could be launched within months.

But could any new party afford the Blairite former Foreign Secretary?

I learn the King over the Water earned £646,710 ($838,903) basic salary as CEO of the International Rescue Committee (IRC), a New York-based aid organisation, in 2017.

This represents a staggering 23 per cent rise of £123,000 on 2016’s pay packet when he took home £523,000 and dwarfs the £153,000 annual salary paid to Theresa May.

The IRC accounts are for the year ended September 30, 2017.

On top of his ‘reportable pay from the organisation’, Miliband received £36,950 in ‘estimated amount of other compensation from the organisation and related organisations’ for a 37.5-hour working week.

Miliband’s pay has been declared publicly at the Charities Bureau in New York, where International Rescue is based.

When he took up the post in 2013 his salary was £425,000.

Miliband, who abandoned British politics after losing the Labour leadership contest to brother Ed in 2010, has held a series of meetings with Tony Blair in recent months

The charity cash is not Miliband’s only income, however, as he is thought to have rented out his £3 million home in London’s Primrose Hill since moving to New York with his wife, American violinist Louise Shackelton, and their two adopted children.

The couple could expect to receive £6,750 a month, or £81,000 a year, in rent. Miliband, 53, fuelled speculation about his return in June when he said that he missed Britain and took Marmite and PG Tips to America with him, adding: ‘Of course I’ll come back. It’s my home. I’m British.’

Friends say that his wife also wants to resume her career with the London Symphony Orchestra.

Miliband, who abandoned British politics after losing the Labour leadership contest to brother Ed in 2010, has held a series of meetings with Tony Blair in recent months.

International Rescue is supported by hefty donations from Miliband’s old pal George Soros, the anti-Brexit billionaire, so perhaps he could bankroll David’s salary in Blighty.

Earlier this year, the IRC came under fire for hushing up 37 sex abuse, fraud and bribery allegations.

Prime Minister Theresa May has hit out at Tony Blair’s constant attempts to stop Brexit, speaking out in a manner rarely seen before.

Blair, along with other pro-EU grandees like Sir John Major and Lord Heseltine, have made consistent interventions seeking to slow down and kill of the UK leaving the EU.

This has included Blair lining up with Heseltine and Sir Nick Clegg in the German media to lobby the EU for time to stop Brexit. Disgraceful.

May has responded to Blair’s constant interference by saying: “For Tony Blair to go to Brussels and seek to undermine our negotiations by advocating for a second referendum is an insult to the office he once held and the people he once served.

“We cannot, as he would, abdicate responsibility for this decision.

“Parliament has a democratic duty to deliver what the British people voted for.”

She has also said that “too many people who want to subvert the process for their own political interests – rather than acting in the national interest”.

Whilst May is right to point out Blair’s appalling behaviour, she is wrong to stick with her doomed deal with the dreaded backstop that MPs won’t put up with.

She should instead be looking to deliver on the referendum result by ramping up the UK ready to leave with No Deal – but instead has consistently talked this option down, playing into the hands of Brussels.

Theresa May has launched an astonishing attack on Tony Blair, accusing the former prime minister of seeking to “undermine” her during Brexit talks in order to pursue his own “political interests”. In highly unusual move, Ms May hit out at one of her predecessors, claiming the former Labour leader’s support for a second Brexit referendum was “an insult to the office he once held and the people he once served”.

Theresa May’s team told the Chief Minister of Gibraltar he would be “cut out of the deal” unless he backed her Withdrawal Treaty, an expert connected with the territory has claimed.

Fabian Picardo, the Chief Minister, had signalled his support for May’s EU deal in an article for The Times on Wednesday, declaring that the deal protects Gibraltar’s British sovereignty, and their economic interests.

But speaking on the BrexitCentral podcast, Ben Brickley, the PR manager at Friends of the British Overseas Territories says the Chief Minister was told: “you’re either with us or you’re cut out of the deal”.

Brickley said that once Spain began making ratification of the treaty difficult, Mrs. May failed to keep negotiating and instead decided to “sell them down the river”.

Brickley also added that May’s deal was worse than Tony Blair’s idea of sharing sovereignty with Spain, saying: “In reality Spain will make economic prosperity far more difficult for the Gibraltarians if this deal goes through.”

Downing Street have categorically denied that any pressure was put on Fabian Picardo to support May’s EU deal. and on Twitter Fabian Picardo said “This is 100% untrue. It just didn’t happen.”

Hillary Clinton has issued frank advice to European leaders: If you want to stop the rise of rightwing populists then get a handle on your immigration crisis.

Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, said during an interview with The Guardian that the one million migrants and refugees that have flooded into the European Union since 2015 have thrust immigration into the spotlight and fueled the rise of hardline leaders around the globe. And while she praised German chancellor Angela Merkel for her compassion, she cautioned that countries can’t leave the door open forever.

“I think Europe needs to get a handle on migration because that is what lit the flame,” Clinton said regarding the rise of rightwing populists like Hungary’s Viktor Orbán.

Clinton added: “I admire the very generous and compassionate approaches that were taken particularly by leaders like Angela Merkel, but I think it is fair to say Europe has done its part, and must send a very clear message – ‘we are not going to be able to continue provide refuge and support’ – because if we don’t deal with the migration issue it will continue to roil the body politic.”

MIGRANT CARAVAN GIVEN OPTIONS AS OFFICIALS KICK OFF JOB FAIR IN TIJUANA

Continue Reading Below

Countries like Germany, Greece and Italy – which have been most affected by the influx of migrants – have argued that other nations throughout the region need to share in the burden. But the other countries, especially those in central and eastern Europe, have so far refused to help out.

Migration numbers have dropped precipitously from their height in 2015.

Clinton was one of three politicians interviewed by the Guardian, along with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and former Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, about the rise of rightwing populism and what center-left politicians are struggling to combat it.

The two former prime ministers both agreed with Clinton’s statement that the immigration issue was directly responsible for fueling the populist trend.

“You’ve got to deal with the legitimate grievances and answer them, which is why today in Europe you cannot possibly stand for election unless you’ve got a strong position on immigration because people are worried about it,” Blair said. “You’ve got to answer those problems. If you don’t answer them then … you leave a large space into which the populists can march.”

Clinton singled out President Trump’s use of immigration as an issue to rally his base of support on the campaign trail and as one of the reasons she lost to him in the 2016 presidential race.

“The use of immigrants as a political device and as a symbol of government gone wrong, of attacks on one’s heritage, one’s identity, one’s national unity has been very much exploited by the current administration here,” she said. “There are solutions to migration that do not require clamping down on the press, on your political opponents and trying to suborn the judiciary, or seeking financial and political help from Russia to support your political parties and movements.”

The three former world leaders also argued that rightwing politics was able to rise not just because it latched on to an anti-immigration agenda, but because of its disruptive style of politics that highlights divisions. Blair said that more mainstream politicians will struggle to get heard over the simple, emotional language used by populists and that they need to find a way to cut through the soundbites that make the headlines.

And while the three global figures said they believed that populism was near its peak and people were beginning to see its faults, none could pinpoint a reason why populist leaders have been so successful over the past few years.

“The whole American system was designed so that you would eliminate the threat from a strong, authoritarian king or other leader and maybe people are just tired of it,” Clinton said. “They don’t want that much responsibility and freedom. They want to be told what to do and where to go and how to live … and only given one version of reality.”

She added: “I don’t know why at this moment that is so attractive to people, but it’s a serious threat to our freedom and our democratic institutions, and it goes very deep and very far and we’ve got to do a better job of shining a light on it and trying to combat it.”

A company boss who has given nearly £1m to the Conservative party and long-serving MPs from across the Commons head the list of political figures who receive a knighthood in this year’s New Year honours list.

David Ord, who becomes a knight in the new year, is a co-owner of Bristol ports and a member of the Conservative party’s Leaders’ Group, who were granted exclusive access to cabinet ministers under David Cameron and George Osborne. He has given more than £930,000 to the party since 2013.

Ord, a major opponent of the Severn Barrage, was once embroiled in a donations row after it emerged in 2014 that Bristol North West MP Charlotte Leslie had failed to declare the port owner’s donations to her local party on time, despite making numerous parliamentary interventions about the project. She apologised and was cleared of wrongdoing by the parliamentary watchdog.

Jeremy Corbyn said the honours for Tory donors were an insult to those who had been rewarded for charitable work or achievements. “The Conservatives are making a mockery of our honours system,” the Labour leader’s spokesperson said. “Every crony appointment is an insult to the incredible people from right across Britain who are rewarded for the great contributions they make to our national life.”

A Downing Street source defended the honours for Conservative donors, saying: “Being involved in political parties is generally considered to be an important part of civic society, and the alternative is having state funding for political parties, which is not where the consensus lies. When people dedicate their time and service to civil society it’s appropriate they can be honoured.”

Two veteran sitting MPs were knighted. Conservative MP Julian Brazier and Labour’s David Crausby, a former member the HS2 select committee, which sat for almost 100 days over eight months taking evidence from up to 40 petitioners a day.

Former Lib Dem minister Steve Webb, one of the architects of the coalition’s “triple-lock” pension guarantee and auto-enrolment in workplace pensions, has also been knighted.

Vera Baird, the former Labour MP who is now Northumbria police and crime commissioner, has been made a dame for services to women and equality. The former QC, who was solicitor general under Gordon Brown, was honoured for her role in the Equality Act 2010. Baird said she saw the honour as “giving the cause of equality a boost”.

Politicians receiving the highest honours included Liberal Democrat peer Shirley Williams, who has been made a companion of honour to mark more than 50 years in political life. Lady Williams, a former Labour education secretary under James Callaghan, was one of the so-called gang of four of influential Labour politicians who split to form the Social Democrat party, which later merged with the Liberal party to form the Lib Dems.

Other Tory donors receiving honours this year include associate party treasurer Dominic Johnson, who lent the Cameron family his west London townhouse rent-free when the former prime minister resigned and left No 10.

The register of MPs’ interests shows that the family stayed in the Chelsea property until the end of October before they moved back into their Notting Hill home, which had been rented out.

M&C Saatchi founding director Jeremy Sinclair, credited as the brains behind the famous Conservative campaign poster showing Tony Blair with “demon eyes”, also receives a CBE.

Key members of Conservative party headquarters have also been honoured, including director of campaigning Darren Mott, who received an OBE, with Alexandra Broadrick, chief of staff to the party chairman, and Louise Goodall, the deputy head of fundraising, receiving MBEs.

Whitehall staff also received dozens of awards, including 14 for Home Office officials who served under Theresa May when she led the department. However, some critics questioned the number of awards handed out to staff from HMRC, given the recent poor performance of the department.

Staff received the honours for their work on tackling tax non-compliance and tax avoidance, as well as for customer service. The department was recently criticised by the National Audit Office for pursuing only one successful criminal prosecution despite a new specialist unit identifying almost £2bn in tax evasion and avoidance by the super-rich.

The Lib Dem leader, Tim Farron, said the honours for HMRC investigators “dishonour the honours system” given the department’s poor performance on tax evasion and delays on consumer hotlines.

“HMRC have had the worst year; not only billions of pounds not collected from the biggest tax dodgers, but the average punter has been made to wait for hours on the phone on hold,” he said. “It’s a farce. I thought this was a joke, but it’s not.”

A government source said it had a “proud record of tackling tax evasion, one of the toughest in the developed world, and not only are these civil servants being rewarded for their work, the service itself is doing good work.”

Paging AG Sessions…

Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch announced Wednesday it discovered more classified material on Hillary Clinton’s private server.

New emails appear to be among those Clinton had attempted to delete or had otherwise failed to disclose, said Judicial Watch.

Judicial Watch announced today that it received 288 pages of newly uncovered emails of former Secretary of State Hillary that were transmitted over her unsecure, non-“state.gov” email system, three of which contain classified information.

Judicial Watch obtained the documents in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed on May 6, 2015, after the State Department failed to respond to a March 4, 2015, FOIA request (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00687)) seeking:

Classified information was sent in a January 26, 2010, email from Jake Sullivan, Secretary Clinton’s top foreign policy adviser, to Clinton and her top aide Huma Abedin explaining that he has “pasted” (his word) from another document a written summary sent to him from former British Prime Minister Tony Blair. Blair’s conversations are with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Irish leaders regarding the sensitive Northern Ireland peace process.

Also included is a classified April 8, 2010, email from secret Clinton adviser Sid Blumenthal (who was barred from a State Department position by the Obama administration and regardless continued to advise Clinton on matters of state) about the change of government in Kyrgyzstan.

And the emails include a classified June 13, 2009, email from Sullivan to Clinton and aide Cheryl Mills regarding Sullivan’s discussions with Northern Ireland leaders.

The new documents obtained by Judicial Watch also show Hillary Clinton being given speech-making advice by Blumenthal. They reveal a potential conflict of interest between the Clintons. They also contain information about a CIA team killed by al Qaeda.

President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton said Attorney General Jeff Sessions should immediately order a new investigation of Hillary’s email scandal:

“We continue to uncover the mishandling of classified information in Hillary Clinton emails that she tried to hide or destroy. This is further evidence of the urgency for the DOJ to finally undertake a complete and legitimate criminal investigation. Attorney General Jeff Sessions should immediately order a new investigation of the Hillary Clinton email scandal.”

Judicial Watch intends to challenge this by attending a court hearing this Thursday, October 11th to discuss the estimated number or percentage of documents the State Department continues to withhold.

(Big League Politics) – The number of classified emails on Hillary Clinton’s non-secure private email server keeps growing.

The new emails obtained by Judicial Watch include classified information she received from Tony Blair and her bag man Sidney Blumenthal, and a reference to her lunch meeting with George Soros.

There is no question in the minds of any honest observer that Hillary Clinton’s classified emails were hacked, including by the New York sex cult NXIVM, which is accused of child trafficking.

Inspector general Michael Horowitz’s report reveals Comey’s duplicity.

“A statement that the FBI assessed that it was “reasonably likely” that hostile actors gained access to Clinton’s private email server was changed to “possible,’” according to the report, on page iv.

“A paragraph summarizing the factors that led the FBI to assess that it was possible that hostile actors accessed Clinton’s server was added, and at one point referenced Clinton’s use of her private email for an exchange with then President Obama while in the territory of a foreign adversary. This reference later was changed to “another senior government official,” and ultimately was omitted,” the report states, on page iv.

Thus, James Comey obscured Hillary Clinton’s very name in order to conceal the extent to which her emails were breached by foreign actors.

As lead Hillary Clinton reporter for Breitbart News during the election, I reported on October 31: “The server had an open webmail portal, making it easily vulnerable to run-of-the-mills hackers. James Comey noted evidence showing hacks by “hostile actors.” Capitol Hill sources speak in hushed tones about the “Russian Files,” which are said to include information about a Russian hack. Clinton was warned of a security “vulnerability” on her BlackBerry on her first official trip to China, and the State Department told her to stop using it. But Clinton decided to keep using it. She told a private audience in a paid speech that her BlackBerry was under attack constantly by the Chinese and Russians. Hillary Clinton had a lot of classified information on that server.”

Judicial Watch lists the new classified information uncovered in the latest round of Hillary emails. Judicial Watch’s reporting is below:

“On June 7, 2011, Clinton received classified information on her non-secure email account from former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, which Blair also forwarded to Jake Sullivan, about Blair’s Middle East negotiations with Israel, the Palestinians and the French

On January 26, 2010, Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan sent classified information via his unsecure Blackberry to Huma Abedin’s State Department email account that he’d earlier sent to Clinton’s and Abedin’s non-secure @clintonemail.com email accounts about U.K. negotiations with Northern Ireland.

On October 28, 2010, Clinton exchanges information with her friend Marty Torrey – a congressional aide – who asks Clinton in an email if she would advise that Torrey meet with former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf. Clinton responds through her non-secure email account approving the meeting and notes that she is emailing him from Hanoi, Vietnam.

An email chain dated April 8, 2010, which contains a memo from Sid Blumenthal to Hillary Clinton related to the change of government in Kyrgyzstan, contains information classified “confidential” and is redacted as “foreign government information” and “foreign relations or foreign activities of the United States, including confidential sources.” Blumenthal urges Clinton to “develop relations” with the new government in Kyrgyzstan.

A January 26, 2010, email to Hillary Clinton from her deputy chief of staff, Jake Sullivan, is classified “confidential” and contains a “call sheet” that Clinton received prior to placing a call to Northern Ireland political leaders. It appears that the redacted portions contain the names of particular members of Sinn Fein who were invited to a particular meeting and the expectations of either themselves or other foreign ministers for the outcomes of that meeting.

A June 13, 2009, email to Clinton from Sullivan with the subject line “Northern Ireland” is classified “confidential” and nearly completely redacted. The particular subject details are unclear.

Abedin emails Clinton about “Invites for the week” in an undated email (but apparently written before November 1, 2011, the day Clinton’s mother died, because her mother is one of the invitees – probably written in early 2009, based on the period most of these emails seem to have been written), and notes that she (Clinton) has a “George Soros lunch from 1-3 in Southampton.”

On October 20, 2010, lawyer Lanny Davis writes Clinton an email saying, “Thank you H for who you are and what you do,” followed in the exchange by another with “PS. I swear you look younger and better every time I see you, Good night dear Hillary. Lanny.” Mr. Davis is currently a lawyer for Michael Cohen.

In an undated email, Blumenthal emails Clinton about State Department management issues suggests that Joseph C. Wilson “should be spoken with for his view of dept, personnel … is shrewd.” Wilson is a former ambassador to Gabon who went on to become an Africa consultant and deal-maker.

Newly leaked emails could give the Department of Justice enough evidence to open a new investigation into Hillary Clinton for sending and receiving classified information on her private email server.

On Thursday, Judicial Watch released two batches — 184 pages and 45 pages — of newly uncovered emails of Clinton when she was secretary of state. The conservative watchdog group reports it located five emails that contained classified information on her private, non-secure server.

“These classified Hillary Clinton emails that she tried to hide or destroy show why it is urgent that the DOJ finally undertake a honest criminal investigation,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These emails show how the prior sham investigation by the Comey-Strzok-McCabe-Lynch crowd was a joke. It is past time for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to order a new investigation of the Hillary Clinton email scandal.”

The documents were obtained after Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit in 2015 under the Freedom of Information Act against the DOJ. Judicial Watch won its suit, and the judge gave the DOJ a timeline to hand over all emails sent or received by Clinton in her official capacity as secretary of state as well as all emails that other DOJ officials sent to her private email address.

The five emails that were recently uncovered include material classified “confidential” on negotiations between the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland. They also show highly sensitive information regarding negotiations with Israel, Palestine, and France.

Here’s what Judicial Watch reports the emails stated:

On June 7, 2011, Clinton received classified information on her non-secure email account from former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, which Blair also forwarded to Jake Sullivan, about Blair’s Middle East negotiations with Israel, the Palestinians and the French

On January 26, 2010, Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan sent classified information via his unsecure Blackberry to Huma Abedin’s State Department email account that he’d earlier sent to Clinton’s and Abedin’s non-secure @clintonemail.com email accounts about U.K. negotiations with Northern Ireland.

A January 26, 2010, email to Hillary Clinton from her deputy chief of staff, Jake Sullivan, is classified “confidential” and contains a “call sheet” that Clinton received prior to placing a call to Northern Ireland political leaders. It appears that the redacted portions contain the names of particular members of Sinn Fein who were invited to a particular meeting and the expectations of either themselves or other foreign ministers for the outcomes of that meeting.

A June 13, 2009, email to Clinton from Sullivan with the subject line “Northern Ireland” is classified “confidential” and nearly completely redacted. The particular subject details are unclear.

In July 2016, fired FBI Director James Comey announced at a news conference that Clinton sent and received countless emails on her private server that contained classified information. That’s a felony, per count.

Many are skeptical that anything will happen to Clinton, especially given she has never been charged despite allegations of illegality dating back decades. But Republicans control both chambers of Congress and the White House, giving them new powers to move forward.

GOP lawmakers have been demanding a second special counsel to investigate Clinton for her emails, and with Judicial Watch continuing to provide overwhelming evidence that she broke the law countless times, it could actually lead to the former secretary of state being held accountable for her actions.

Judicial Watch has released two batches of emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that she sent and received using her unsecured, non-“state.gov” email.

The two documents from the U.S. Department of State — at 184 pages and 45 pages respectively — were obtained by Judicial Watch as the result of a lawsuit filed in 2015.

The purpose of the lawsuit was to seek “All emails sent or received by former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in her official capacity as Secretary of State, as well as all emails by other State Department employees to Secretary Clinton regarding her non-“state.gov” email address.”

Due to an order by U.S. District Court Judge James E. Boasberg, the State Department must complete the processing of these documents no later than September 2, 2018.

The newly-released documents contain material classified as “confidential,” including negotiations between countries like Palestine and Israel, as well as the UK.. and Northern Ireland.

Additionally, the documents contain references to meetings Clinton had with controversial political figures, such as Sid Blumenthal and George Soros.

Judicial Watch summarized some of the highlights of the documents, complete with dates, names, and links to specific emails:

“On June 7, 2011, Clinton received classified information on her non-secure email account from former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, which Blair also forwarded to Jake Sullivan, about Blair’s Middle East negotiations with Israel, the Palestinians and the French.”

“On January 26, 2010, Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan sent classified information via his unsecure Blackberry to Huma Abedin’s State Department email account that he’d earlier sent to Clinton’s and Abedin’s non-secure @clintonemail.com email accounts about U.K. negotiations with Northern Ireland.”

Clinton responds through her non-secure email account approving the meeting and notes that she is emailing him from Hanoi, Vietnam.”

Judicial Watching is calling for a re-opening of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails after finding more classified information on the former Secretary of State’s non-“state.gov” email system.

On Thursday, the watchdog revealed that it had received two batches, 184 pages and 45 pages, of newly uncovered emails belonging to Hillary Clinton from the U.S. Department of State sent and received over her unsecured server.

The emails were uncovered by a FOIA lawsuit filed on May 6, 2015, after the State Department failed to respond to a March 4, 2015 FOIA request seeking all emails sent or received by Clinton in her official capacity as Secretary of State, as well as all emails by other State Department employees to Clinton regarding her non-“state.gov” email address.

Judicial Watch broke down what they found:

On June 7, 2011, Clinton received classified information on her non-secure email account from former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, which Blair also forwarded to Jake Sullivan, about Blair’s Middle East negotiations with Israel, the Palestinians and the French

On January 26, 2010, Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan sent classified information via his unsecure Blackberry to Huma Abedin’s State Department email account that he’d earlier sent to Clinton’s and Abedin’s non-secure @clintonemail.com email accounts about U.K. negotiations with Northern Ireland.

On October 28, 2010, Clinton exchanges information with her friend Marty Torrey – a congressional aide – who asks Clinton in an email if she would advise that Torrey meet with former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf. Clinton responds through her non-secure email account approving the meeting and notes that she is emailing him from Hanoi, Vietnam.

An email chain dated April 8, 2010, which contains a memo from Sid Blumenthal to Hillary Clinton related to the change of government in Kyrgyzstan, contains information classified “confidential” and is redacted as “foreign government information” and “foreign relations or foreign activities of the United States, including confidential sources.” Blumenthal urges Clinton to “develop relations” with the new government in Kyrgyzstan.

These emails caused Judicial Watch founder Tom Fitton to call for the Department of Justice to re-open the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time in office.

“These emails were uncovered from the emails that Hillary Clinton tried to delete or otherwise hide from the American people,” Fitton said in a video posted Thursday.

“These new emails once again show why the Clinton email investigation needs to be re-opened by the Justice Department.”

The batch of emails also disclosed a January 26, 2010, email to Hillary Clinton’s private server from her deputy chief of staff, Jake Sullivan, that is classified “confidential” and contains a “call sheet” that Clinton received prior to a call with Northern Ireland political leaders.

Interesting, but not surprising, is also an email that shows a meeting scheduled between Hillary Clinton and leftwing billionaire George Soros.

Judicial Watch strikes again!

On Thursday, conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch announced it uncovered 5 more Hillary Clinton emails containing classified information on her unsecured email server.

Judicial Watch obtained two batches containing hundreds of new Hillary Clinton emails from her non ‘state.gov’ email system in response to a FOIA lawsuit filed in May of 2015!

The emails show Hillary Clinton meeting with George Soros and continuing to be advised from Sid Blumenthal, who was previously barred from a State Department position.

The new documents include material classified “confidential” on negotiations between Northern Ireland and UK, as well as negotiations with Israel, Palestine, and France. They also include a reference to a Clinton meeting with controversial leftwing billionaire George Soros, and advice to Clinton from Sid Blumenthal, who was barred from a State Department position by the Obama administration and regardless continued to advise her on matters of state.

On June 7, 2011, Clinton received classified information on her non-secure email account from former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, which Blair also forwarded to Jake Sullivan, about Blair’s Middle East negotiations with Israel, the Palestinians and the French

On January 26, 2010, Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan sent classified information via his unsecure Blackberry to Huma Abedin’s State Department email account that he’d earlier sent to Clinton’s and Abedin’s non-secure @clintonemail.com email accounts about U.K. negotiations with Northern Ireland.

On October 28, 2010, Clinton exchanges information with her friend Marty Torrey – a congressional aide – who asks Clinton in an email if she would advise that Torrey meet with former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf. Clinton responds through her non-secure email account approving the meeting and notes that she is emailing him from Hanoi, Vietnam.

All of this suggests to me the necessity for the State Department to assert itself and take the lead in developing relations with the new government.

Abedin emails Clinton about “Invites for the week” in an undated email (but apparently written before November 1, 2011, the day Clinton’s mother died, because her mother is one of the invitees – probably written in early 2009, based on the period most of these emails seem to have been written), and notes that she (Clinton) has a “George Soros lunch from 1-3 in Southampton.”

On October 20, 2010, lawyer Lanny Davis writes Clinton an email saying, “Thank you H for who you are and what you do,” followed in the exchange by another with “PS. I swear you look younger and better every time I see you, Good night dear Hillary. Lanny.” Mr. Davis is currently a lawyer for Michael Cohen.

In an undated email, Blumenthal emails Clinton about State Department management issues suggests that Joseph C. Wilson “should be spoken with for his view of dept, personnel … is shrewd.” Wilson is a former ambassador to Gabon who went on to become an Africa consultant and deal-maker.

Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch had this to say about the new classified Hillary emails found on her unsecure server:

“These classified Hillary Clinton emails that she tried to hide or destroy show why it is urgent that the DOJ finally undertake a honest criminal investigation. These emails show how the prior sham investigation by the Comey-Strzok-McCabe-Lynch crowd was a joke. It is past time for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to order a new investigation of the Hillary Clinton email scandal.”

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released two batches, 184 pages and 45 pages, of newly uncovered emails of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from the U.S. Department of State sent and received over her unsecure, non-“state.gov” email system. Five emails contain classified information.

Judicial Watch obtained the documents in response to a FOIA lawsuit filed on May 6, 2015, after the State Department failed to respond to a March 4, 2015 FOIA request (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00687)) seeking:

All emails sent or received by former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in her official capacity as Secretary of State, as well as all emails by other State Department employees to Secretary Clinton regarding her non-“state.gov” email address.

The documents are part of the accelerated schedule of production ordered by U.S. District Court Judge James E. Boasberg, which requires the State Department to complete processing by September 28, 2018, the remaining documents of the 72,000 pages recovered by the FBI in its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illicit email server.

Tony Blair is quietly advising the Saudi government under a £9 million deal with his "institute for global change", The Sunday Telegraph can disclose.

The former prime minister's company reached an agreement earlier this year to help support the Saudi Crown Prince's modernisation programme, under a "not for profit" arrangement.

It is the first major deal to have emerged involving the Tony Blair Institute, which Mr Blair established in 2016 after winding down his commercial operations.

This newspaper understands that the institute received a $10 million (£7.6 million) payment in January for the work, which is carried out by the institute's staff based in the Middle East.

Michael Portillo ripped apart the Chequers Brexit white paper, saying Conservative party members inside and outside Westminster now view Theresa May as a traitor.

The Prime Minister's proposed blueprint would see Britain maintain its close commercial links with the European Union through a free trade area, a move Leave voters have denounced as a betrayal of their demands.

The This Week pundit said: "It’s very hard to see how that’s going to get through. The Brexiteers now believe she is a traitor.

"This has been a betrayal and it’s a betrayal that has resulted from treachery. That’s also the view of a large number of Conservative voters."

According to Tory MP Andrew Bridgen, several colleagues have already turned in letters of no confidence in the Prime Minister to the leader of the Conservative Party’s 1922 Committee.

Chairman Sir Graham Brady must receive 48 letters of no confidence before triggering a confidence vote of the parliamentary party.

Mr Portillo argued that the impossibility of seeing Chequers deal through Parliament could push MPs to suspend the Article 50 process and delay Britain's exit from the EU.

He continued: "What I think will happen is you would think then that we might simply crash out of the European Union but I don’t think the House of Commons is going to allow that to happen.

"I think the House of Commons will go for a suspension of Article 50 and I regard that as the most likely outcome."

Mrs May managed to unite her Cabinet behind her proposals at Chequers and claimed to have restored collective responsibility.

But days later former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis both resigned in protest.

Even arch-Remoaner and former Prime Minister Tony Blair said Mrs May’s plan betrays Brexiteers.

Speaking on BBC Newsnight, he said her approach to Brexit was a “fallacy” and her current plan would not keep Brexiteers happy.

He said: “The whole fallacy in Theresa May’s approach.

“If she thinks this honours the Brexit mandate, it doesn’t honour what most people who voted for Brexit think and we know that because they’re saying it.”

The number of classified emails on Hillary Clinton’s non-secure private email server keeps growing.

The new emails obtained by Judicial Watch include classified information she received from Tony Blair and her bag man Sidney Blumenthal, and a reference to her lunch meeting with George Soros.

There is no question in the minds of any honest observer that Hillary Clinton’s classified emails were hacked, including by the New York sex cult NXIVM, which is accused of child trafficking.

Former FBI director James Comey deleted his own admission that Hillary Clinton’s emails were likely hacked by foreign enemies.

Inspector general Michael Horowitz’s report reveals Comey’s duplicity.

“A statement that the FBI assessed that it was “reasonably likely” that hostile actors gained access to Clinton’s private email server was changed to “possible,’” according to the report, on page iv.

“A paragraph summarizing the factors that led the FBI to assess that it was possible that hostile actors accessed Clinton’s server was added, and at one point referenced Clinton’s use of her private email for an exchange with then President Obama while in the territory of a foreign adversary. This reference later was changed to “another senior government official,” and ultimately was omitted,” the report states, on page iv.

Thus, James Comey obscured Hillary Clinton’s very name in order to conceal the extent to which her emails were breached by foreign actors.

As lead Hillary Clinton reporter for Breitbart News during the election, I reported on October 31: “The server had an open webmail portal, making it easily vulnerable to run-of-the-mills hackers. James Comey noted evidence showing hacks by “hostile actors.” Capitol Hill sources speak in hushed tones about the “Russian Files,” which are said to include information about a Russian hack. Clinton was warned of a security “vulnerability” on her BlackBerry on her first official trip to China, and the State Department told her to stop using it. But Clinton decided to keep using it. She told a private audience in a paid speech that her BlackBerry was under attack constantly by the Chinese and Russians. Hillary Clinton had a lot of classified information on that server.”

Judicial Watch lists the new classified information uncovered in the latest round of Hillary emails. Judicial Watch’s reporting is below:

“On June 7, 2011, Clinton received classified information on her non-secure email account from former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, which Blair also forwarded to Jake Sullivan, about Blair’s Middle East negotiations with Israel, the Palestinians and the French

On January 26, 2010, Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan sent classified information via his unsecure Blackberry to Huma Abedin’s State Department email account that he’d earlier sent to Clinton’s and Abedin’s non-secure @clintonemail.com email accounts about U.K. negotiations with Northern Ireland.

On October 28, 2010, Clinton exchanges information with her friend Marty Torrey – a congressional aide – who asks Clinton in an email if she would advise that Torrey meet with former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf. Clinton responds through her non-secure email account approving the meeting and notes that she is emailing him from Hanoi, Vietnam.

An email chain dated April 8, 2010, which contains a memo from Sid Blumenthal to Hillary Clinton related to the change of government in Kyrgyzstan, contains information classified “confidential” and is redacted as “foreign government information” and “foreign relations or foreign activities of the United States, including confidential sources.” Blumenthal urges Clinton to “develop relations” with the new government in Kyrgyzstan.

A January 26, 2010, email to Hillary Clinton from her deputy chief of staff, Jake Sullivan, is classified “confidential” and contains a “call sheet” that Clinton received prior to placing a call to Northern Ireland political leaders. It appears that the redacted portions contain the names of particular members of Sinn Fein who were invited to a particular meeting and the expectations of either themselves or other foreign ministers for the outcomes of that meeting.

A June 13, 2009, email to Clinton from Sullivan with the subject line “Northern Ireland” is classified “confidential” and nearly completely redacted. The particular subject details are unclear.

Abedin emails Clinton about “Invites for the week” in an undated email (but apparently written before November 1, 2011, the day Clinton’s mother died, because her mother is one of the invitees – probably written in early 2009, based on the period most of these emails seem to have been written), and notes that she (Clinton) has a “George Soros lunch from 1-3 in Southampton.”
