Brexit mayday? PM May's ministers move to oust her, Sunday Times says

If May is toppled, Brexit would be thrust into doubt. It is unclear how, when and even if the United Kingdom will leave the EU. May, who voted to stay in the EU and won the top job in the chaos following the 2016 referendum, had vowed to deliver Brexit but she undermined her premiership with a botched snap election in 2017 which cost her party its parliamentary majority.

May Could Lose Tuesday's Brexit Vote by Huge Margin, Times Says

Theresa May’s aides are increasingly concerned that Tuesday’s vote on her Brexit deal could result in an even worse humiliation than she endured in a similar vote in January, the Sunday Times reported. In theory, should Parliament reject her deal, it would then be offered a vote the following day on whether to take the prospect of a no-deal Brexit off the table. May’s failure to move the needle on the negotiations with Brussels over the backstop accord has prompted senior members in the hardco...

Why West Ham’s dodgy goal vs Fulham will be illegal next season

Chicharito’s West Ham handball goal vs Fulham A few weeks ago West Ham beat Fulham 3-1 in the Premier League. Ryan Babel opened for Fulham at the London Stadium after just three minutes. However the Hammers were level by the half hour as Javier Hernandez equalised. But should Chicharito’s goal have been chalked off? The Mexican striker courted plenty of controversy for handling the ball into the Fulham net. In fairness to the match officials, the handball was difficult to spot at first instance...
