Ever since I was a little boy I enjoy drawing monsters. I would spend ages assembling fangs, eyes, scales and horns into the creative critters of my imagination.

This week in my cartoon for the Economist, I was able to put my youthful zeal for beasts to good use. I wanted to create two toothy cartoon abominations to help explain the uncomfortable choices facing Britain in the fast-approaching run-up to brexit next spring.

The British prime minister Theresa May this week finally put forward a draft brexit plan for the UK. It was a 500-page Colossus that received mixed reviews from her cabinet. It faces even tougher scrutiny in Parliament – which will have to approve it. When the public faces this brexit behemoth they will see a scary creature that will leave damaging tooth marks on many parts of the economy. A worse option for brexit may be looming – a No Deal brexit monster.

A failure to agree on Mrs Mays deal by March could unleash this fiend with even more ferocious bite. Surely there must be a way to escape these groups you may ask? Well, not according to Mrs May and many of her fellow conservatives – they say a second referendum on Brexit is out of the question.

Asking the citizens to vote again on this weighty issue would, they claim, unleash even more monstrous consequences. Is the door an escape or a trap? There’s only one way to find out. What lies behind the door? We don’t know

Trump TROLLS Theresa May for her Brexit ‘deal-making’ abilities



The Duran Quick Take: Episode 28.

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris take a quick look at US President Trump’s recent comments on UK PM Theresa May’s handling of the Brexit negotiation.

The man behind ‘the art of the deal’ does not believe May did a particularly good job negotiating the UK’s exit from the European Union, and furthermore May’s Brexit deal may actually impede trade between the US and the UK.

Theresa May: ‘Any extension to article 50 reopens the deal’



The prime minister gives evidence to a Commons committee on the Brexit negotiations, telling senior MPs that talks with the EU would have to be reopened if the UK sought an extension to the departure process. Asked whether an extension could be made to article 50, the timetable which decrees the UK leave on 29 March next year, to allow time for a referendum, May argued this would invalidate the deal agreed in Brussels
Extending article 50 would invalidate Brexit deal, says May
