Ambassador aims to address concerns of Swedish businesses and Swedes living in Britain
Sweden is embarking on a tour of the United Kingdom to reassure its 100,000 expatriates and British-based Swedish businesses worried about the threats posed by a hard Brexit.
Torbjörn Sohlström, the Swedish ambassador to the UK, said thousands of Swedes in the UK were very concerned about their right to remain in the UK and that “taking this pop-up embassy to them across the country will hopefully reassure them”.Continue reading...
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.
Hammond warns leadership candidates not to ignore parliament on Brexit
British soldiers’ recent evidence has been shocking. And in the UK, it has been unreported
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.Continue reading...
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.Continue reading...
Death of Sophie Toscan du Plantier in west Cork in 1996 and protracted, bungled investigation has captivated Ireland
After 23 years of trying to clear his name Ian Bailey is bracing for the appellation he has always dreaded: convicted murderer.
A court in Paris is due to try the English former journalist this week for the 1996 murder of the French film-maker Sophie Toscan du Plantier in west Cork, a bucolic Atlantic region known as the Irish riviera.Continue reading...
Visit to sumo wrestling’s spiritual home followed by golf and burgers as Abe tries to keep president on side
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.Continue reading...

A likely tornado destroyed a motel, swept through a mobile home park and caused significant damage in the Oklahoma City area, according to the National Weather Service.
The storm came after a week of tornados, severe rain and flooding in southern plains and midwest states, including a tornado that hit Jefferson City, Missouri. The region’s most recent spate of bad weather and flooding has been blamed for at least nine deaths.Continue reading...
Chancellor says ‘a prime minister who ignores parliament cannot survive’
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.
In a forthright interview, the chancellor reminded the hardline Brexit candidates – Boris Johnson, Dominic Raab and Esther McVey – that parliament was “vehemently opposed” to leaving the EU without a deal.Continue reading...
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.’”Continue reading...
