May promotes Brexit on 'first-anniversary' United Kingdom tour

Brexit news- Mary Creagh and Nigel Farage

Mrs May's all-day plane trip comes amid polling suggesting that Britain remains deeply divided over Brexit, but has little appetite for a second referendum on the issue.

Harvey Blackwood analysts believe that by suggesting that the United Kingdom bends to certain EU regulations and agreeing that the European Court of Justice plays an ongoing role in British law, May runs the risk of alienating some Brexit campaigners who are concerned that she is too willing to compromise.

"Brexit provides us with opportunities", May said while visiting a weaving firm in southwestern Scotland. "The UK contains four proud and historic nations, but together we amount to so much more than the sum of our parts and our union is an enormous force for good".

Brexiteers fret that the European Union divorce is taking too long and could be reversed.

According to a poll published on Wednesday, 44 percent of Britons think that "the government's handling of the Brexit negotiations so far has been "a total shambles", with 18 percent who it has been "satisfactory" and three percent "excellent". But longer-term forecasts show growth grinding lower over the next five years and lagging global rivals.

While the majority of voters in England and Wales backed Brexit, most in Scotland and Northern Ireland wanted the United Kingdom to remain in the EU.

At an event in Paris, France this morning, Huawei officially unveiled the P20 and P20 Pro , it's latest global flagship devices. The Leica triple camera onboard has trounced the other smartphones at DxOMark , scoring a highest-ever mark of 106 .

The main opposition Labour Party has said it will back a trade deal with the EU only if the deal meets the six yardsticks it has laid down, which includes Britain retaining the benefits of the European single market and customs union.

Former British prime minister Tony Blair urged Mrs May to offer a free vote in the Commons on the final Brexit deal, telling the Independent that if she did not, Labour and Tory MPs should be ready to vote with their conscience and rebel.

Scotland and Wales are drawing up contingency plans to protect their own interests in case they can not reach agreement with May on how powers regained from Brussels are redistributed.

Against that backdrop, May's tour is focused on meeting a cross-section of voters to reassure them that she is working to tear down the barriers thrown up by the referendum, and that whether they voted "Leave" or "Remain", they will be better off after Brexit.

Theresa May has rejected claims Brexit will result in a Westminster power grab insisting it will mean more powers going to the devolved government in Edinburgh.

"Now, what I'm charged with as Prime Minister is delivering on that Brexit vote we will leave the European Union on 29th March 2019 in a year's time, but also ensuring that as we do so we take the opportunities that will become available to us".
