In Berlin stößt der britische Premier Boris Johnson auf Ablehnung. Kanzlerin Angela Merkel will nicht neu über den Brexit verhandeln. Das scheint Johnson einkalkuliert zu haben. "Wir schaffen das", sagt er.

German chancellor puts responsibility for crashing out of EU firmly at UK PM’s door

Angela Merkel has challenged Boris Johnson to come up with a solution to avert a no-deal Brexit “in the next 30 days”, putting responsibility for stopping the UK crashing out of the EU firmly at the British prime minister’s door.

After weeks of diplomatic tension, the German chancellor used her first face-to-face meeting with her UK counterpart on Wednesday to signal cautious optimism that a deal could be struck, suggesting that the backstop was “a placeholder that will no longer be necessary” if a solution to the impasse over the Irish border can be found.

At 11pm UK time on 31 October the UK would, by default, become a “third country” in terms of relations with the EU, with no post-Brexit plan in place, and no transition period. The UK would no longer be paying into the EU budget, nor would it hand over the £39bn divorce payment.

From the greengrocer’s to the local gift shop, residents brace for the prospect of crashing out of the EU without a deal

“You see the melons over there?” said Ali Ahmed, pointing across his extensive display of fruit and vegetables at his greengrocer’s in Stevenage town centre. “They come from Spain. Most of the apples come from Poland. The tomatoes are from Holland.”

Ahmed, who has been running Star Groceries for about five years, gets most of his fresh produce from New Spitalfields market. “We’ve spoken to the wholesaler and [if there is a no-deal Brexit] they say it’s going to be very, very, very hard. But we have no idea what’s going to happen. I don’t know what I can do. You can’t stock up on fresh fruit and veg, so I’m just hoping they get a deal.

Slashing attendance by half will ‘unshackle’ staff to prepare for Brexit, minister says

British officials will stop attending most EU meetings from September, the Brexit secretary, Steve Barclay, has said, suggesting his department would slash attendance by more than half to “unshackle” officials and ministers.

The government will now only send officials to EU meetings where the UK has “a significant national interest in the outcome of discussions, such as on security” and instead focus on countries outside the bloc.

Senior Labour MP says no-deal Brexit proposal would create chaos for EU citizens in UK

Ending the free movement of people with a no-deal Brexit on 31 October would cause chaos and confusion for EU citizens on a scale that would make the Windrush scandal look like a minor blip, Diane Abbott has said.

The shadow home secretary said Boris Johnson’s policies were taking the country “towards a catastrophe” as 2 million EU citizens resident in Britain had not registered for settled status, having been told the deadline was December 2020.

Although the idea of twinning towns predates the second world war, it was in its aftermath that the concept took hold as a way of promoting reconciliation and friendship between nations. Coventry, which suffered heavy bombing, was a pioneer. In 1942, women from the city sent a message of hope to the women of Stalingrad (now Volgograd), which had also been devastated. Two years later, the two cities agreed an official “bond of friendship”. Links with Kiel (1947) and Dresden (1956) followed.

The original idea to twin communities after the second world war was to reduce the risk of future world conflict

With Brexit, there will be difficulties. This makes the connection between Coventry and Dresden all the more val... Show more...
Shadow chancellor also says only Jeremy Corbyn could lead caretaker government

The shadow chancellor, John McDonnell, has backed MPs’ demands for Boris Johnson to cut short parliament’s summer recess, and said it was “non-negotiable” that Jeremy Corbyn should lead any caretaker government.

McDonnell said the Labour party wanted parliament to be reconvened in the next few days to drive efforts to avoid a no-deal Brexit, and described a letter signed by more than 100 MPs demanding that the prime minister do so as a good initiative.

As the prime minister heads for the Biarritz summit, he has no relationship with the other governments and very little trust

For weeks things have been quiet in the summer heat. But in recent days the normal diplomatic back-channelling between London, Brussels, Paris, Berlin and Rome has cranked into gear before the G7 meeting in Biarritz of the world’s most advanced economies.

British officials have been liaising with their EU counterparts on how to get on the right side of the trade war between the US and China, tread a diplomatic fine line over the European-backed Iranian nuclear deal opposed by Donald Trump and get the rhetoric right on the precarious situation in Hong Kong in the presence of the Chinese leader Xi Jinping. “This is a diplomatic quagmire of a G7,” said a European diplomat.
