Trump Administration Puts Trade Deal With EU Ahead of Post-Brexit Britain

Trump Administration Puts Trade Deal With EU Ahead of Post-Brexit Britain
- The United States could strike a free-trade agreement with the European Union after President Donald Trump warmed to a deal with the bloc, the Times reported on Saturday, quoting sources from both sides of the discussion.Post-Brexit Britain would be pushed behind Europe in the race to secure a U.S. deal after Germany's Angela Merkel persuaded Trump that talks on a deal would be simpler than he thought, the newspaper said. Britain will not be free to agree new trade deals until it has left the EU in 2019. A source close to the White House was quoted as saying that there had been a "realization" in the Trump administration that a trade deal with the EU - allowing the tariff-free exchange of goods and services - was more important to U.S. interests than a post-Brexit deal with Britain. "Ten times Trump asked her (Merkel) if he could negotiate a trade deal with Germany," the newspaper quoted a senior German politician as saying.

We should push harder for end to poverty

We should push harder for end to poverty
- In South Lakeland we have more than 2,000 children who are considered to be in poverty (after housing costs) and the number is expected to increase materially in the next four years. This is not just disgraceful in a wealthy society like ours, it is also a dreadful waste of resources (If you want to check the statistics, have a look at www.endchildpoverty.org.uk).
Many of the children in poverty are in households where there is at least one income earner. So poverty is not directly related to unemployment. Indeed if it was, we would have a very low level of poverty, as we have a low level of unemployment in the district. Actually our issue is that wages are too low, and the benefits system is not adequate.
I am not only horrified and embarrassed by the anxiety, stress, and malnutrition that poverty can cause, I am also shocked at the wastefulness. Children born in poverty have significantly less educational achievement, shorter lifespans, and less opportunities in adulthood. We talk about wanting a highly skilled population and then we condemn so many of our children to suboptimal life chances.

Ukip Candidate Compares Her Sexual Attraction To Gorillas To Being Gay
- But Gisela Allen expressed even more unconventional views when she was contacted by the Sunday Herald newspaper for a follow-up story, telling the newspaper that she finds gorillas “very attractive” - and that this somehow supports argument about why gay people should not “come out”.
The views of the 84-year-old, who is standing for the Paul Nuttall-led party in the Glasgow Council elections, were widely shared over the weekend thanks to an editorial in the Clydebank Post where she set out her desire to abolish nurseries, golf courses, plastic bags, sex education, free bus passes and LGBT communities.
