With a Year to Go to Brexit, UK Economy Falls Behind

Brexit news David Davis migration EU commonwealth Boris Johnson Priti Patel

Against that backdrop, May's tour is focused on meeting a cross-section of voters to reassure them that she is working to tear down the barriers thrown up by the referendum, and that whether they voted "Leave" or "Remain", they will be better off after Brexit. In total, 145,475 units were produced, 6,757 fewer than in the same month past year.

But the visit, which is also the one-year anniversary of her signing the Article 50 letter to leave the bloc, comes at a time when the country appears no less divided than at the referendum.

Kicking off in Scotland, the Prime Minister will visit textile workers at a factory in Ayrshire, before travelling to Newcastle to meet with a local parent and toddler group. "I am determined that as we leave the EU, and in the years ahead, we will strengthen the bonds that unite us, because ours is the world's most successful union", she said in a statement.

Meanwhile, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, a major anti-Brexit voice, said it was "more likely. than a few months ago" that Brexit could be stopped, saying it was "not too late".

The British prime minister kicked off a whistle-stop tour of the United Kingdom with a visit to a weaving firm in Ayr, where she said she expected to be able to negotiate a deal with the European Union allowing a "good trading relationship" in future. It's a future in which we trade freely with friends and partners across Europe and beyond.

Overhauling NHS funding arrangements and ploughing more money into education are among the plans for post-Brexit Britain, Theresa May has told ITV News. But longer-term forecasts show growth grinding lower over the next five years and lagging global rivals.

According to Wednesday's poll, by ComRes for the Daily Express, only 29 percent are "optimistic" that their household "will be better off" after Brexit, and 35 percent are optimistic that the United Kingdom will be able to negotiate a trade deal with the European Union before leaving.

She confirmed that she wanted a bespoke trading deal with the European Union, unlike any other deal it has signed with other non-EU countries.

At the EU Summit Mrs Merkel warned the next stage will be "very intense" for EU negotiators and also insisted that time was "running out" for a deal to be struck.

She is trying to deliver the message that she is determined to ensure there will be a bright future for every part of go-it-alone Britain.

However, because Britain will be leaving the European Union next year, the United Kingdom won't benefit from the new rules.
