She is also going to attend a meeting of Japan's National Security Council before her talks with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe (SHIN'-zoh AH'-bay).

Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson has given her backing to the Prime Minister's plans to stay in post after Theresa May said she planned to lead the party in a 2022 general election.

The prime minister insisted that she had a long-term agenda beyond Brexit, and that voters were bored of Westminster infighting, in a fresh sign that she is bedding down and challenging critics to put up or shut up.

Four investment analysts have rated the stock with a hold rating and one has issued a strong buy rating to the company's stock. Investors often use this ratio to evaluate what a stock's fair market value should be by predicting future earnings per share.

Speaking ahead of May's visit, Japanese Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Yasutoshi Nishimura said Tokyo had to react to "a sense of crisis among businesses" over Brexit, and gather information about the British negotiating strategy.

That, along with political uncertainty surrounding Brexit negotiations, has spurred foreign companies that have set up shop in Britain, or established European headquarters there, to begin looking for alternative locations.

I think it is fair to say that May's intervention was not perfectly calibrated.
