'A PM who ignores parliament cannot survive’ warns Philip Hammond – video


This news was published by : The Guardian exactly at 27 min 11 sec ago

Philip Hammond has warned Conservative leadership candidates they will not be prime minister for long if they pursue a no-deal Brexit, hinting that he and other Tories could be prepared to vote down the government in a confidence motion to prevent that outcome. Hammond said he would urge all his colleagues to 'embrace the concept of compromise' and not to 'box themselves in' by promising to leave on 31 October with or without a deal. Speaking on the BBC’s The Andrew Marr Show, Hammond said embarking on a renegotiation of the backstop before the end of October was a 'fig leaf for a policy of leaving on no-deal terms' because the the EU breaks for the summer and then will not get a new commission until November.

It is highly doubtful if many people living in England, Scotland and Wales know about the startling and disturbing testimony delivered at Belfast’s high court two weeks ago.

For the inquest into the deaths of 10 people shot by British paratroopers in 1971, later known as the “Ballymurphy massacre”, has been under-reported by London-based mainstream media since it began more than five months ago.

Want to save the UK steel industry? Brexit isn’t the answer | Gareth Stace


This news was published by : The Guardian exactly at 59 min 45 sec ago
Leaving the EU has the potential to cause a great deal of damage to exports, weakening an already troubled sector

• Gareth Stace is director general of the trade association UK Steel

The difficulties facing British Steel have quickly become part of the Brexit debate, with commentators variously pointing to our membership of the EU or our decision to leave as an underlying cause. Business is naturally cautious about entering into political debates, but it should not remain silent when it features so prominently in the public discourse. Industry has a responsibility to ensure its views are accurately represented and to establish the facts as they relate to our sector.

There can be no doubt that the ongoing Brexit uncertainty has contributed significantly to British Steel’s problems. Unable to decipher what the UK/EU trading relationship will be in just five months’ time, planning has become fiendishly complicated for both UK exporters and their EU customers. The timing is particularly bad, with the EU having recently imposed “safeguard” measures to prevent a surge in steel imports resulting from protectionist action elsewhere. Post-Brexit, UK steel exports to Europe will be restricted by these measures, with a disorderly no-deal Brexit affecting them particularly badly.

On one side of the sumo ring stood a tall, hefty man with an unconventional hairstyle, bowing and smiling as the crowd applauded; opposite Donald Trump stood a professional wrestler, who on Sunday became the first recipient of a winner’s trophy awarded by the US president during his state visit to Japan.

Trump had been spared the agony of watching the last five bouts of the 15-day tournament in the customary manner – seated cross-legged on a thin cushion. Instead, sumo authorities broke with tradition and provided near-ringside armchairs for the president and the first lady, Melania, and the Japanese prime minister, Shinzo Abe, and his wife, Akie.

Imprisoned PKK Leader Calls For End to Hunger Strikes


This news was published by : Voice of America (EU) exactly at 2 hours 17 min ago
Thousands of prisoners in Turkey ended their hunger strikes Sunday that had been mounted to force Turkey to end jailed militant leader Abdullah Ocalan's isolation at Imrali Island prison. Earlier Sunday, Ocalan's lawyers read a statement from their client calling for an end to the strikes. "I expect the action to come to an end..." Ocalan said in a statement read by one of his lawyers at a press conference in Istanbul. An estimated two to three thousand detainees throughout Turkey's prison system had participated in the strikes. Twice this month, Turkey allowed the 70-year-old imprisoned leader of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) to meet with his lawyers after an eight-year hiatus. PKK had been designated a terrorist group by Turkey, the European Union and the United States. Ocalan's call for an end to the strikes and the resumption of a lawyers' visits comes ahead of an election in Istanbul. Analysts say the moves could foreshadow a new peace process, four years after government talks with Ocalan collapsed.

Israeli President Shocked by German Skullcap Comment


This news was published by : Voice of America (EU) exactly at 2 hours 19 min ago
Israel's president said Sunday he is shocked by a German official's comment that he wouldn't advise Jews to wear skullcaps in parts of the country, which is drawing mixed reactions at home. Felix Klein, the government's anti-Semitism commissioner, was quoted Saturday as saying: "I cannot recommend to Jews that they wear the skullcap at all times everywhere in Germany." He didn't elaborate on what places and times might be risky. "The statement of the German government's anti-Semitism commissioner that it would be preferable for Jews not wear a kippa in Germany out of fear for their safety, shocked me deeply," Israeli President Reuven Rivlin said in a statement. He added that "we will never submit, will never lower our gaze and will never react to anti-Semitism with defeatism - and expect and demand our allies act in the same way." Government statistics released earlier this month showed that the number of anti-Semitic and anti-foreigner incidents rose in Germany last year, despite an overall drop in politically motivated crimes. Germany's main Jewish leader, Josef Schuster, told news agency dpa "it has long been a fact that Jews are potentially exposed to danger in some big cities if they can be recognized as Jews." He added that he pointed that out two years ago, "so it is to be welcomed if this situation gets more attention at the highest political level." Others were sharply critical of Klein's comment. Michel Friedman, a former deputy leader of Germany's main Jewish group, said it was an admission of failure and that "the state must ensure that Jews can show themselves everywhere without fear." Bavaria's state interior minister, Joachim Herrmann, said that wearing a skullcap is part of religious freedom. "Everyone can and should wear his skullcap wherever and whenever he wants," he said. Klein himself told dpa that his statement had been "provocative" and he "wanted to initiate a debate about the safety of the Jewish community in our country." "Of course I believe that there must not be no-go areas anywhere in Germany for Jews or members of other minorities," he said.

Patricia Arquette: ‘I don’t want to play the ingenue for ever’


This news was published by : The Guardian exactly at 2 hours 59 min ago
The actor has taken on her toughest part yet, playing a mentally ill mother in new true crime show The Act. Here, she talks about ageing, activism and midwifery

Patricia Arquette’s new US television true crime series, The Act, is as unsettling as it is fascinating. She portrays Dee Dee Blanchard, a mother now understood to have been suffering from Munchausen syndrome by proxy, who faked her daughter Gypsy’s serious ailments, confining her to a wheelchair and subjecting her to unnecessary procedures and medications for more than 20 years. In real life, Dee Dee was murdered by Gypsy’s boyfriend and co-conspirator, Nicholas Godejohn, in 2015. Joey King (Gypsy) and Chloë Sevigny (neighbour Mel) are excellent in The Act, but it’s Arquette’s Dee Dee who holds the eye – one moment, a “devoted” mother, the next, brooding and calculating.

“I’d always been fascinated by Munchausen by proxy,” says Arquette, 51, when we meet at a central London hotel. “It was terrifying to me that parents would do this to their kids. I didn’t know this specific case, though. My kids did. They went: “No, don’t play that lady!” I said: ‘Guys, I’m just an actor. I’m not going to start coming home and giving you medication.’”

Hello. My name is Ed Snowden. A little over one month ago, I had family, a home in paradise, and I lived in great comfort. I also had the capability without any warrant to search for, seize, and read your communications. Anyone’s communications at any time.


Most of the news published here, you can read in tomorrow's newspaper,
or watch on your television news first in 2 - 3 hours. It's a fast robot to pick up all news fast.
Most often within 30 seconds from when the news first got released or published the first time in any part of the world.
So all news reports, from all news agencies, you have here within the same minute of release. Really quick!
We could adjust it to update every second (technically possible), but it will be considered overload of the news agencies websites, and not popular at all.
So you will have to be okey with one or two intel and news robot automatic updates per minute. Which is still the best news reporting on the market.
Considering the amount of sources we update on (over 100 https:// news channels) per minute. Everything automated 24 hours and 7 days per week.
The goal is to provide the best global overview. And to program the best free Internet tool to stay globally updated at all times.
Example: A nuclear plant outside Oslo, Norway, has a major accident. You want to know more about the situation.
Here you can follow many newsreports from several reporting sources like Reuters, AP, TASS, BBC and CNN to quickly and without to much trouble, asses more information about the accident and get a better overview of the whole situation fast! That's the greatness of this intelligence and news website.
And although some of our clients already work in intelligence agencies and have excellent reporting, they are not always at work having that access.
So when not at work and you wish to have a global update, you are of course welcome here, as the rest of us! Just type NSAROBOT.COM
Hold your mousepointer here in the grey window, or dot it, if you have touchscreen.
