    The Democratic Unionist Party has warned UK Prime Minister Theresa May it will bring down her government if Northern Ireland is forced to stay inside the EU customs union and single market after Brexit. The renewed threat comes ahead of a vote by British MPs, pushed for by pro-EU parliamentarians, seeking to keep UK customs union membership.

    Falklands' people had “spoken as clearly as they possibly could” and UK will “guarantee that”

    PM Cameron said that in a referendum as recently as March 2013, 99.8% of Falklands inhabitants voted to remain a British overseas territory.

    UK Prime Minsiter David Cameron blasted Jeremy Corbyn's comments at Prime Minister's Question confirming his government's full support for the Falkland Islands to decide on their future and develop their economy. At the weekend, the Labour leader claimed it was “ridiculous” the UK was still in dispute with the Argentina over South Atlantic islands, as he demanded “sensible dialogue” over the Islands.
