Philip Hammond raises further doubts about May's future as Tory leader | Politics | The Guardian
The Sunday Times reported at the weekend that Hammond, Boris Johnson, David Davis and Amber Rudd were involved in feverish plotting to replace May immediately after her snap election gamble in June failed to deliver the promised Tory majority.

When asked repeatedly whether he believed May should lead the party into the next election, Hammond insisted the issue was separate from the immediate question of leading the UK through the Brexit talks.

Brexit: UK will be ‘screwed into the floor’ in EU withdrawal talks, warns Ryanair boss | The Independent
Michael O’Leary, chief executive of Europe’s biggest budget airline, campaigned strenuously for a Remain vote in the EU Referendum. He told the Airport Operators Association annual conference: “Britain has no negotiation position whatsoever. You file the Article 50 in March, you walk off a cliff in two years’ time.

"We’re already working on the summer '19 schedule. I need to know what’s going to be happening in March 2019. We can’t plan with that kind of uncertainty.”

THERESA MAY’S MISTAKEN PRECEDENT FOR A BREXIT BASED ON CHERRY-PICKING
[Merkel] and others will agree there will be no sectoral deals in either the single market or the customs union”. [...] The truth is that a Brexit deal on a sector-by-sector basis is a fantasy. So how is it possible that Theresa May thinks this fantasy is in the land of the living? The answer, I think, lies in her time as Home Secretary, and in particular the lessons she learnt from the one key EU negotiation she undertook in her time there. [...] Of all the strands of wishful thinking this government is bringing to the Brexit process, this is perhaps the most damaging.

European ministers ridicule Boris Johnson after prosecco claim | Politics | The Guardian
Boris Johnson’s approach to Brexit has been ridiculed by European ministers after he told Italy it would have to offer tariff-free trade in order to sell its prosecco in the UK.

Carlo Calenda, an Italian economics minister, said it was insulting that Johnson had told him during a recent meeting that Italy would grant Britain access to the EU’s single market “because you don’t want to lose prosecco exports”.

Vince Cable: assurances to Nissan means UK will stay in customs union | Business | The Guardian
Theresa May’s assurances to Nissan that the car industry will remain competitive after Brexit point to a promise that the UK will be staying in the EU customs union, according to Sir Vince Cable.

Cable, who was business secretary throughout the coalition government, said this was the most probable rationale as the industry would need assurances there would be no tariff regime and that its supply chain would not be subject to rules of origin checks.

Dies könne er Johnson notfalls auch auf englisch verständlich machen. Auch Frankreichs Finanzminister Sapin betonte, die europäischen Grundfreiheiten seien unteilbar.
Johnson hatte zuvor erklärt, es sei völliger Unsinn, dass es einen Automatismus zwischen dem Zugang zum EU-Binnenmarkt und der Freizügigkeit der Menschen gebe. Beides habe nichts miteinander zu tun.

The biggest blunder of them all
Keeping all this cautiously in mind, let’s look at the British establishment cock-up. According to one of those involved, this all started at a pizza restaurant at Chicago O’Hare Airport at the time of a Nato conference in 2012, when David Cameron and his closest political allies decided that the only way of scuppering Ukip and the Euro-hostile right of the Conservative Party was to give the British people a referendum.

The brutal way of putting this is that Cameron decided to put party management and tactics ahead of grand strategy, grossly overrated his own negotiating skills, and has been badly bitten in the bottom accordingly. He has often looked like a chess player who plays the next move brilliantly yet fails to see three moves ahead. //&! http://bit.ly/29ncCyG - Michael Gove and Boris friendships. //&! http://bit.ly/29B8Nns - Westminster

He didn’t believe a word of his own rhetoric, we know that now. His face last Friday morning, ashen with the terror of victory, proved it. That hot mess of a column he served up on Monday confirmed it again: he was trying to back out of the very decision he’d persuaded the country to make. And let’s not be coy: persuade it, he did. Imagine the Leave campaign without him. Gove, Nigel Farage and Gisela Stuart: they couldn’t have done it without the star power of Boris.

Mr Heseltine, a former Deputy Prime Minister, said there is now a "great gaping hole in the future of Britain's decisions makers" as well as investors from all over the world.

In the message, she reminded her husband that his presence on the ticket was intended to reassure press barons who did not warm to Johnson. In return, she said, Boris must give “SPECIFIC assurances” to Gove. One surmises that those assurances were not forthcoming – or that yesterday’s “crucial meetings”, referred to in the email, yielded additional problems.

Polit-Chaos auf der Insel - Labour-Chef kämpft um seinen Job

Wer glaubt, die EU sei im Eimer, der sollte heute zur Beruhigung seiner Nerven nach Großbritannien schauen. Dort herrscht das eigentliche politische Chaos. Die Schotten wollen das Referendum nicht akzeptieren, und bei Labour bahnt sich ein Putsch an. Parteiboss Jeremy Corbyn wird von etlichen Parteigranden zum Rücktritt gedrängt. Sie werfen ihm wahlweise vor, nicht genug oder zu viel für den EU-Verbleib Großbritanniens getrommelt zu haben. Generell steckt dahinter wohl vor allem die Angst, mit dem wenig dynamisch wirkenden Corbyn als Spitzenkandidat bei etwaigen Neuwahlen keine Chance zu haben. In der Parlamentsfraktion wird heute ein Misstrauensantrag gegen Corbyn erwartet.

This has been a seismic rebellion against the establishment.
It is a cry from thousands of people who felt angry and alienated. More than half the voters rejected all the pleadings from the president of the United States, the head of the IMF, and countless world leaders.
In the end, gut and instinct trumped all the arguments about economic turmoil and warnings of economic collapse. In huge and unprecedented numbers the Labour vote broke for Leave. [...] The prime minister has underlined that there will be no change for EU citizens living in this country or British citizens in the EU. [...] Campaign scars [ 'it was all just about Brexit Campaign' ABOUT TRYING TO SAVE FACE ... "my right honourable colleague" ... always polite and knigge. ] Committed Europeans among Conservative MPs may question their future in party.

[ endangering the country ] 'Bruised Boy' George Osborne: admired for sharpness, not seen as the most likeable politician [...] Both sides of the Brexit debate agree that in the short term, an "out" vote would mean a degree of uncertainty, and nervousness in the markets. However much it might mark the beginning of a brave new world, there would be an air of crisis. [...] It is not likely the joint resignation of the chancellor and prime minister would steady frayed nerves. They might tough it out - for the sake of the country, of course. More likely they might set a future date, maybe a year away, for their departure and an orderly contest.
But they could simply fall.

The Prime Minister had already admitted to MPs on Wednesday evening that it had been a ‘tough week’ for the Government but urged the party ‘not to lose sight of what we can do’.

How damaged is George Osborne by IDS resignation?
George Osborne: chief tactician and patron, a man whose word makes or wrecks careers.
That was the view of many Tory MPs for a very long time.
Now, many doubt he will ever be their leader, or even the chancellor much longer.
It's not that they think David Cameron is poised to sack him or that he's about to resign, as Labour demand.
They simply believe a swift leadership election is highly likely whatever the result of 23 June's EU referendum. If it does come that soon there will be, one predicts, a "genocide of the Cameroons and Osbornites".
A stubbornly enduring deficit, a tax credit U-turn, and the sheer numbers of MPs who have chosen to back a leave vote at the referendum have seen Osborne's authority leak.
A weekend of melodrama has - in one Tory MP's view - burst the dam.

Disability benefits U-turn leaves Cameron with £4.4bn to find
David Cameron has been forced to concede that a £4.4bn black hole created by the U-turn over disability benefits will not be filled by further cuts to welfare as he fought to shore up his credibility following the shock resignation of Iain Duncan Smith. The spending climbdown was announced on Monday by Stephen Crabb, the new work and pensions secretary, an hour after Cameron addressed the political crisis engulfing the Conservative party by offering his support to George Osborne and praise for the work of Duncan Smith. [...] but the Treasury clarified the remarks by stressing that there were no plans to fill the £4.4bn gap caused by dropping PIP reforms with further cuts in welfare spending. &! bbc.in/1S10VIg

Budget 2016: George Osborne's political balancing act
Like Sherlock Holmes, we must look in this Budget for the dogs that do not bark. Four years out from a general election, this is the time in the political cycle when chancellors can take unpopular decisions. A moment, perhaps, for a big reform to our pensions or taxation. Yet the mood music emerging from the Treasury is distinctly adagio. [...] Genuinely radical plans to overhaul pension tax relief have been put on hold for fear of upsetting middle and higher earners. Proposals to cut the 45p top rate of tax are said to have gone the same way. [...] [OBR] is expected to say that the British economy is smaller than the watchdog had expected it would be when it made that prediction. As such, the Treasury would get less than it had expected in tax revenues.

History not on George Osborne's side in move from Treasury to No 10 | Politics | The Guardian
All in all, being chancellor in postwar Britain has been a tough job. There have been four deep recessions, three housing bubbles and umpteen sterling crises. Prime ministers have tended to use their next-door neighbours as enforcers and fall guys: chancellors say no when cabinet colleagues want to increase public spending; they take the blame when things go wrong. //&!

Could this be George Osborne's last Budget?
In any case, the Out campaign has begun to look as much like an internal Tory party putsch as a principled fight for sovereignty and a better economic future. Those who always mistrusted Cameron and Osborne, regarding them as closet Blairites rather than the true heirs to Thatcher, sense their time has come. By the summer, the Tory high command could look completely different. [...] [Budget2016] more of an exercise in pre-election showmanship than the traditional post-election downer of renewed fiscal discipline and supposedly desirable economic reform. [still] For Osborne, the goal of a balanced budget by the end of the parliament must remain sacrosanct. [...] Don’t risk our economic recovery, will be his underlying message [...] for Cameron and Osborne, this is once more a fight for political survival. //&! ind.pn/21mctLh &! bit.ly/1QJWpjD - If Britain votes against Brexit and the economy stays strong he may yet be the next Prime Minister //&! bit.ly/1Rb24m1

EU referendum: Iain Duncan Smith 'troubled' by Remain conduct - BBC News
[Vote of confidence from the exit-campaigners and backbenchers after the vote, where people say "remain."?] The "acrimonious" conduct of the UK's EU Remain campaign risks damaging the government beyond the June referendum, Iain Duncan Smith has warned. [...] BBC political correspondent Alex Forsyth says this is the strongest intervention yet from Mr Duncan Smith and will be seen as implicit criticism of the prime minister and his allies.

EU referendum: Boris Johnson calls Cameron's Project Fact 'baloney' | Politics | The Guardian
"stay campaign is project fear" leave campaigners go without facts. [...] Chris Grayling, one of the six cabinet members who favour Brexit, had earlier dismissed a 28-page Cabinet Office report warning of what Cameron called a “decade of uncertainty” if Britain votes to leave, as “completely ludicrous”. Grayling accused his boss of running a “relentless campaign of fear”. Separately, employment minister Priti Patel, another prominent advocate for Brexit, ramped up the criticism of cabinet secretary Sir Jeremy Heywood’s decision to limit the support civil servants can provide to pro-Brexit ministers, describing it as “unconstitutional”.

EU referendum: Cameron claims leaving EU could make cutting immigration harder - Politics live | Politics | The Guardian
I do not believe the Prime Minister, and I don’t think a majority of the public in his party, and certainly not of the country, believes him when he says he would sail on in office with a negative vote to negotiate out of the European Union after telling people it was essential to the security and prosperity of the country, as he put it last week, for us to be in it. The idea that a prime minster could remain in office following such a vote is, to coin a phrase, for the birds, which is exactly of course why [Boris] Johnson is right in one bit of his apparent calculation that an opening would allow a new prime minister as then he puts it, to negotiate our way back into some sort of European construct on better terms. The second half of that probably is for the birds but at least on the first half, a vacancy being available, I think that he has a point.

Could the UK really leave the EU? | Jonathan House | LinkedIn
Johnson is a “figure who the political classes calculate could remove the fear factor from the idea of Brexit for the wider UK population,” according to Mujtaba Rahman, Eurasia Group’s top analyst for Europe. Nonetheless, Rahman concluded that the prime minister’s office, with the backing of leading political figures and a large part of the business community, will prevail over the proponents of Brexit. “Despite this calamitous weekend for Cameron, we believe Downing Street will be able to regain control of the debate,” Rahman said in a research note. The stakes are high. The price of recovering lost sovereignty for the UK would be the loss of preferential trade access to the world’s largest economic bloc and the risk of losing foreign investment for a country heavily dependent on financial inflows. For the EU, it would set a dangerous precedent with unknown consequences for the process of needed governance reforms.

EU referendum: Half-forgotten memories of Boris - BBC News
Two, Mr Johnson's decision can only serve to sharpen the fundamental divisions which are prevalent within the Conservative Party. As I have noted ad nauseam, political parties are coalitions of the more or less willing, generally held together by a wider cause - that cause usually being the desire to secure power. [...] But comparable calculations apply to other politicians. Senior Tories have to weigh their own prospects in the balance. That applies amply to Boris Johnson who, of course, harbours leadership ambitions.
