BREXIT LIVE: Fury as France gloats UK has LOST influence with Washington ‘UK has vanished’

BREXIT has led to the collapse of British influence in Washington, according to outgoing French ambassador to the US Gérard Araud. Mr Araud claims UK diplomats had vanished off the scene as London became increasingly focused on the one issue dominating its politics.

Yet his comments were swiftly followed by confirmation of US President’s Donald Trump’s state visit to Britain in June. Mr Araud told the Financial Times: “The UK has vanished. The British ambassador told me — and I loved it — that every time the British military is meeting with the American military, the Americans are talking about the French.” Theresa May sought close ties with the Trump administration when she came to office despite widespread opposition from the public and senior politicians including the Speaker of the Commons John Bercow.

Mr Araud described Mr Trump as a “brutal and primitive” politician but said he understood the motivation behind those who elected him.

“The people who voted for Trump, and the yellow vest protesters in France and some of the people who voted for Brexit — they are all saying ‘enough is enough’.”

Sir Peter Westmacott, a former British ambassador to Washington, said: “Gerard Araud is not averse to point scoring.

“But he is, sadly, right that Britain is so absorbed with Brexit that we don’t have much bandwidth for anything else.

“Once the destructiveness of the Brexit debate is behind us, there is no reason why we shouldn’t remain, with France, a major European player and a close partner of the United States. So, Gérard, enjoy it while you can!”

Former foreign office officials agreed Britain had lost focus on international alliances and issues and had neglected global leadership roles and raised concerns Brexit would mean a loss of leverage with the US.

Mr Hammond said: ”Finding a candidate with the right skills and experience to lead the Bank of England is vital for ensuring the continuing strength of our economy and for maintaining the UK’s position as a leading global financial centre.”

8.41am update: Former minister backs May to stay in No 10

Former business minister Richard Harrington, who quit over the prospect of a no deal Brexit, has backed Theresa May to continue as Prime Minister and warned a leadership election would be “disastrous”.

Mr Harrington told the BBC Today programme: “Given that Theresa May has already said she is going to leave – the question comes back to the Brexit question.

“I really believe at the moment for this phase of it, where Parliament has to decide what it wants to do in weeks, a leadership election would be disastrous not just for the Conservative party but for the whole country.”

Mr Harrington said a leadership contest would be a cover for a “mini-referendum” and attacked “self-styled spokesmen for the Conservative party”.

He said: “If we do what they want and have a leadership election now it wouldn’t be a leadership election, it would be a kind of mini-referendum within the Conservative party.

“There would be one candidate very much in favour of ‘let’s call it a hard Brexit or no deal’ and presumably one that didn’t.

“This is irrelevant to the future of the country and the party.”

8.15am update: Brexit “contributing” to Northern Ireland violence

Former British negotiator to Northern Ireland Jonathan Powell said Brexit is contributing to sectarian violence in Northern Ireland but was careful to stress it is not the cause.

Mr Powell told the BBC Today programme: “I think it would be quite wrong to say either the political crisis in Northern Ireland – the institutions having fallen over and not being put back up again, the essence of the Good Friday Agreement – nor Brexit caused this.

“The trouble with it is it’s sitting out there as a political crisis and this sort of mindless violence can then fall into that.”
