Theresa May

The Metropolitan police have arrested Naa’imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, from north London, and Mohammed Aqib Imran, 21, from Birmingham and charged with plotting terrorist acts. The security service in the UK said they think they have stopped a plot by the men to assassinate UK Prime minister, Theresa May.

                         

The men plan was to throw a bag with a bomb in it, and then stab the prime minister with knives.

Both men are now arrested and will be due to appear in Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday. 

The plot was revealed to the cabinet by Andrew Parker, the head of MI5, and he also told ministers that the nine other terrorist planned acts have also been averted by the security forces.

Donald Trump is not relaxing on his "America first" Agenda after the US president played the UK prime minister, Theresa May, after she had lobbied with Trump not to impose heavy tax on a new model of passenger jet built by one of the country's biggest employers.

The US government has imposed a 219 percent tax for the import of the jets in the United States. The Union are not happy with May's sluggishness, and have said the decision by the US Department of commerce will affect thousands of workers in Northern Ireland, the manufacturer of the Bombardier jet. The Union said Theresa May is "asleep at the wheel"

               

While it is expected that the US impose a tax on the new jet, the recent 219 tax is a huge size for Bombardier, and Theresa May had a call earlier in the month to talk about the US department of commerce decision, and had asked that Trump look into it, but in the US side, the Bombardier biggest competitor, Boeing had accused the Bombadier of having received unfair subsidies from the UK and Canada government, and this will allow for the manufacturer to be able to sell at lower cost price than Boeing in America.

Bombardier is supposed to deliver 125 new jets to Delta next year as part of a $5.6bn (£4.2bn) deal signed in 2016, and has called the imposed tax"absurd" and also vowed to fight the decision by the US commerce department.

Ross Murdoch, GMB national officer has accused May of not doing more for British workers, and Jimmy Kelly, Unite regional secretary said;

The decision taken by the US department of commerce was not unexpected - unfortunately it is unlikely to be overturned by President Trump whose protectionist tendencies are well-known. The threat of punitive tariffs on the C-Series will cast a shadow over Bombardier's future unless the company can source alternative and substantial sales outside the US market.

Despite media bullying, and all the difficulties to the election, Jeremy Corbyn has been able to lead the Labour party to a strong showing in the last election, and in appreciation, the Labour leader was welcomed with a  standing ovation from members of his party at the house of common in the first parliamentary sitting since the election.

Mr Corbyn was with all smiles on Tuesday as he makes his way to his seat at the parliament, and member of his party gave him a standing ovation.

        

The snap election called by Theresa May has caused the conservatives to lose their majority sit, and labour riding on its win, making Theresa May ran to the The Democratic Unionist Party (DUP).

May going to DUP has caused a got a lot of negative reaction because of the party stance on different issues. Former Conservative Prime Minister John Major advised Ms May to avoid a deal with the party, warning the risks of a returned violence in Northern Ireland.

Also, another former Minister, Ed Vaizey, talked about the danger of the alliance with the DUP, he said; 

I come from [the] liberal wing of the Conservative party. I’m not going to support any legislation that I would regard as socially illiberal, or taking this country backwards.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has called for UK prime minister to resign instead of seeking re-election again in the country. The call came after the Theresa May role in cutting police numbers while she was home secretary between 2010 and 2016. 

               

Jeremy Corbyn during his speech at Carlisle said that Ms May is trying to protect the people on the cheap, while he cut the police of 20,000 and also denied them of needed resources.

UK in recent times had three terror attacks in three months, with the lastest attack killing 7, and injuring another 48 people.

Jeremy Corbyn said the upcoming election would be a great opportunity for the British people to remove the prime minister, and also backs for her to resign.

While speaking to ITV, Jeremy said;

Indeed I would, because there’s been calls made by a lot of very responsible people on this who are very worried that she was at the Home Office for all this time, presided over these cuts in police numbers and is now saying that we have a problem – yes, we do have a problem, we should never have cut the police numbers.

Defending her position at one of her election campaign, Theresa May said;

Cressida Dick has said that the Metropolitan Police are well resourced – and they are, she has said they have very powerful counter-terrorism capabilities – and they do.

We have protected counter-terrorism policing budgets, we have funded an uplift in the number of armed police officers.

Andrea Leadsom has quit the race for Conservative party leader and also as UK prime minister, leaving Theresa May uncontested for the same position. Addressing pressman today, Leadsom said that she does not believe she had the strong support to lead a "strong and stable government".

                

She later endorsed Theresa May and say she was "ideally placed" to lead Brexit and also wished her the "greatest success". She also apologised to Ms May for what she said during a newspaper interview that being a mother gives her a better candidate for the job.

It is up to 1922 Conservative MPs to decide on a revised timetable or if Theresa May will become leader unelected. 

If she is uncontested, then the only discussion left would be when she would take over from David Cameron.

Ms Leadsom campaigned for the BREXIT campaign, while Ms May campaigned for REMAIN. 

Ms May and Ms Leadsom made it to the final two after Ms May acquired 199 votes, and Ms Leadsom, 84 votes from MPs. Justice Secretary Michael Gove was eliminated after coming third.
