U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May Promises She Will Quit Once Brexit Deal Is Delivered
(LONDON) — British Prime Minister Theresa May told Conservative lawmakers Wednesday that she will step down once the U.K.’s exit from the European Union is delivered — a dramatic concession meant to bring enough of her colleagues on board to push her deal over the line.
伦敦 — 英国首相特蕾莎·梅(Theresa May)周三对保守党议员表示，一旦英国退出欧盟，她将辞职。这是一个戏剧性的让步，意味着她将有足够多的同事参与，推动她的协议达成协议。
May told a party meeting of legislators that she was aware of a desire for a new approach – and new leadership – in the second phase of the Brexit negotiations.
“I am prepared to leave this job earlier than I intended in order to do what is right for our country and our party,” she said, according to a transcript released by her office. “I ask everyone in this room to back the deal so we can complete our historic duty – to deliver on the decision of the British people and leave the European Union with a smooth and orderly exit.”
Facebook to ban white nationalism and separatism
Facebook has said it will block "praise, support and representation of white nationalism and separatism" on Facebook and Instagram from next week.
Facebook 表示，从下周开始，它将在 Facebook 和 Instagram 上屏蔽"对白人民族主义和分裂主义的赞扬、支持和代表"。
The social media giant also pledged to improve its ability to identify and block material from terrorist groups.
Facebook users searching for offending terms will be directed to a charity which combats far-right extremism.
The social network has come under pressure after a man livestreamed an attack on two mosques in New Zealand.
Facebook had previously allowed some white nationalist content it did not view as racist - including permission for users to call for the creation of white ethno-states.
Conservatives plan to mass-text voters in four provinces to campaign against carbon tax
The Conservatives are using a new tactic to reach voters with an attack on the federal government's carbon tax just days before it comes into effect.
The Official Opposition party is deploying the usual political outreach tools — ad buys and doorstep campaigning — but it's also planning to send messages directly to voters' phones in the four provinces where the federal carbon pricing policy is being introduced.
Starting Thursday, the Conservative Party will be mass-texting voters with a message from federal leader Andrew Scheer insisting the Trudeau government's carbon tax has to go.
从周四开始，保守党将向大量选民发送来自联邦领袖安德鲁 · 谢尔的信息，坚持特鲁多政府的碳税必须取消。
