With few exceptions, EU officials are putting up a united front in reaction to the Russian election and to the attempted murder of former spy Sergei Skripal in the British city of Salisbury. Meanwhile, Moscow continues to deny any involvement.
British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has resigned, becoming the latest Brexiteer to quit PM Theresa May's Cabinet. It follows May's attempts to strong arm her Cabinet into accepting a so-called "soft Brexit."
UK police reportedly believe they know who carried out a nerve agent attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter. It comes as police investigate the death of a woman after she came into contact with a similar nerve agent.
Nigel Farage says the British government blocked any contact between him and Donald Trump during the president's visit. But a face-to-face meeting wasn't necessary. Mark Hallam says they did their damage via the press.
Boris Johnson's Brexit dream has died and there are no tears for his fellow resigned UK minister, David Davis. Meanwhile, the Chequers plan could still derail Prime Minister Theresa May and football reigns over politics.
