gives the pair an opportunity — and incentive — to work toward common ground as Johnson is eager for trade agreements. Johnson, until recently, was so unwaveringly close to Trump that it would seem hard for this not to color his relations with Biden. Back in 2019, after Johnson's Conservative Party won a majority in Parliament, Biden called the new British prime minister a "physical and emotional clone" of Trump. So Biden should be cultivating his relationship with Macron as carefully as the one with Johnson. These relationships across the ocean require constant reassurance, particularly in the wake of the four years of the Trump administration.

Sadiq Khan was re-elected London Mayor on Saturday. In 2016, Khan became the first Muslim to head a major Western capital. LONDON (Reuters) - Sadiq Khan was re-elected London Mayor on Saturday as had been widely expected, providing some joy to the opposition Labour Party which has suffered a series of disappointing results in other local elections. Khan, who became the first Muslim to head a major Western capital after his victory in 2016, saw off his main challenger, Shaun Bailey, the candidate from Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Conservative Party. Khan, a former member of parliament who replaced Johnson as leader of the British capital with a population of almost nine million people, has faced criticism over rising violent crime in the capital, particularly stabbings involving teenagers.

L8N2MV06WWhile Johnson has enjoyed wide success elsewhere in England, the opposition party has become increasingly dominant in the British capital. Analysts attribute this to the city's younger, more ethnically-diverse and more pro-European Union population, which unlike most of England, overwhelmingly opposed Brexit.

LONDON — Britain's governing Conservative Party won a new seat in parliament on Friday, ousting the Labour Party in the northern English town of Hartlepool with a sweeping special election victory that tightens its grip on traditional opposition-voting areas. "There's no hiding from the fact this is a shattering result for Labour, absolutely shattering," Labour lawmaker Steve Reed, a member of Starmer's top team, told the BBC. "It tells us that the pace of change in the Labour Party has not been fast enough. Opposition Labour party leader Keir Starmer arrives at a polling station to cast his vote in local elections in London on May 6, 2021. Election analysts said it was the biggest swing of votes to the governing party at a by-election since World War Two.

By-elections happen in Britain when a seat in the House of Commons becomes vacant in between general elections. LONDON — Boris Johnson's Conservative Party has convincingly won a byelection in the northern English town of Hartlepool, cementing its strong footing across working class areas of the country that once belonged to the rival Labour party. The result will be a huge blow to Labour and its new moderate leader Keir Starmer. Other elections this week for local council seats also look to be a disappointment for the opposition party. Steve Reed, a shadow communities secretary for Labour, told BBC Radio on Friday: "There's no hiding from the fact this is a shattering result for Labour."

Recent data showed 2021 U.S. economic growth on track for the strongest performance in nearly four decades. English local elections and a by-election will also test whether the popularity of Johnson's Conservative Party has been dented by recent upheavals. Details are scarce, but a few big state banks distributing 'red packets' containing e-yuan for citizens to splurge will be another show of Beijing's lead in the global race to develop a central bank digital currency. How China's economic recovery shapes up will be key for commodities and in turn for emerging markets dependant on resource exports. With inflation expectations and global yields on the rise, it will give markets plenty to chew over.

LONDON — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has overseen one of Europe's highest coronavirus death tolls, his Brexit project is beset with problems, and his country is in danger of breaking apart. This comes after allegations that the lavish renovations were initially paid for using undeclared money from a Conservative Party donor. "What do we get from this prime minister and this Conservative government? The prime minister. Critics describe a system in which courtiers of the prime minister have broken off into factions, briefing against each other and vying for the prime minister's attention.

U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson leaves Downing Street to attend Prime Minister's Questions at the House of Commons on May 6, 2020 in London, England. Britain's electoral commission opened a formal investigation into the financing of the refurbishment of Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Downing Street apartment, saying there were grounds to suspect an offence may have been committed. The investigation will determine whether any transactions relating to the works at 11 Downing Street fall within the regime regulated by the commission and whether such funding was reported as required. Cummings said he had told the prime minister such plans were "unethical, foolish, possibly illegal". Asked if Johnson had received a loan from the Conservative Party for the refurbishment, transport minister Grant Shapps told Sky News: "The prime minister has already paid for it."

British inventor Dyson denies inappropriate conduct over texts to PM Johnson

The British billionaire James Dyson denied acting inappropriately for seeking tax assurances from Prime Minister Boris Johnson to work on a project to manufacture ventilators in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic. Dyson, inventor of the bagless vacuum cleaner, rejected what he called the BBC's "grotesque mischaracterisation" of his connections to Johnson's Conservative Party. "I have met Boris Johnson only three times – always with officials – the last time in 2016. "The BBC has led the way on reporting a significant story which is clearly in the public interest," a spokesman said. "James Dyson has informed us he is not a prominent Conservative supporter and at his request we put that detail on the record."

London's Royal Albert Hall, the O2 concert space and dozens of venues and events organisations backed a COVID-19 certification scheme to help reopen the economy ahead of the results of a government consultation. On Friday, groups including gig organisers and indoor sports venues published a letter supporting the use of such a scheme. read moreSome lawmakers, including some from Johnson's Conservative Party, have said such a scheme could be discriminatory and have questioned how practical they are. read moreBut the signatories of the letter said that without COVID-19 certification, re-opening venues would not be financially viable. From May 17, the government aims to let venues reopen with social distancing and a maximum indoor capacity of 1,000 people or 50% capacity, whichever is the lower number.
