Trump warming to EU trade deal with Britain behind in queue

Since then she had repeatedly ruled out calling an early election to get her own mandate.

London and Brussels have been at odds on whether talks on the divorce arrangements, including costs, should take place at the same time as negotiations for a trade deal between post-Brexit Britain and the EU.

The more detailed European commission directives for its chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, will be adopted at the end of May, after which the EU will be ready to start talks, with citizens' rights, the UK's financial liabilities and the border in Ireland the priorities.

Death toll in Aleppo bus convoy bomb attack reaches 126
There has been no claim of responsibility for the attack which pro-Damascus media said was carried out by a suicide auto bomber. But the Syrian government has also consistently referred to fighters who oppose President Bashar al-Assad as "terrorists".

"The theory espoused by some, that Theresa May is calling a general election on Brexit in order to secure a better deal with the European Union, is nonsensical", he says. The PM says she wants her hand strengthened in the Brexit negotiations. "But I think our British friends will lose more than what we lose", she said.

Standing outside 10 Downing Street, May said she would ask the House of Commons on Wednesday to back her call for an election, just two years after the last vote and three years before the next scheduled date in May 2020.

Meanwhile, the FTSE 100 rose 0.05 percent or 41.73 points to 7,149.25 by 09:50 GMT, while at 09:00GMT, the FxWirePro's Hourly Pound Strength Index remained highly bullish at 110.51 (a reading above +75 indicates a bullish trend, while that below -75 a bearish trend). "Indeed, it appears this election is being driven by the political opportunism of the party in government, rather than by the people they represent". May called the national election in a surprise move on Tuesday, saying it was necessary to boost her majority and provide stability as Britain gears up for two years of negotiations with the European Union about its departure from the bloc.

Ontario sets tax on foreign buyers to cool Toronto housing market
Some economists have warned that rent control will discourage developers from building new rental properties. An average house in the Greater Toronto Area is more than $1 million; countrywide, it's more than $500,000.

But Britain should not hope for any favors from the other 27 European Union countries just because May has a stronger mandate, Tilford said. He said Labour would fight the election promising a fairer society and economy, and "a Brexit that works for all".

The Labour leader urged voters to "watch this space" despite opinion polls. The country voted 52-48 per cent to leave the European Union, but Scotland backed remaining by a large majority, and Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon is seeking to hold a referendum on independence from the United Kingdom.

"Unless there is some clarity around that mandate, a re-elected Tory Government could do what it wants".

Neil Gorsuch, the new Supreme Court justice
