500000 children raised in UK will battle to get passports after Brexit

500000 children raised in UK will battle to get passports after Brexit
- About half a million children born or raised in the UK will reportedly not gain automatic citizenship after Brexit.
Previously, people born in the UK after 1983 could become British citizens automatically if one parent was British or “settled” – meaning they had lived in the UK for five years prior to their child's birth.
But, according to an upcoming documentary, thousands of these children who applied for citizenship are now being forced to wait to see if they will be awarded it.

UK Turns to Emerging Markets for Trade as Brexit Talks Begin

UK Turns to Emerging Markets for Trade as Brexit Talks Begin
- The government promises improved access to U.K. markets for the world’s poorest countries and to maintain existing duty-free access for “everything but arms” for 48 countries including Bangladesh, Sierra Leone and Haiti, according to an emailed statement from the prime minister’s office. Britain will also seek to expand relationships with nations including Jamaica, Pakistan and Ghana.
After decades of access to the European Union’s single market, the U.K. now has to strike out alone, following the 2016 vote to leave the bloc. In the Brexit negotiations that began June 19 in Brussels, the EU is demanding clarity on the future of its citizens living in Britain before talks on a post-EU trading relationship begin.

Anti-DUP protests are an opportunistic attempt to push anti-Tory agenda

Anti-DUP protests are an opportunistic attempt to push anti-Tory agenda
- The news has been awash with people taking to the streets in protest of the proposed supply and confidence pact between the Conservatives and the Democratic Union Party, but delve a little deeper and the anti-DUP protest movement in England looks like a cynical and opportunistic attempt to push an anti-Tory agenda.
The people are passionate and well intentioned but it seems disingenuous or possibly even exploitative of the suffering of people in Northern Ireland. Protestors are using the mistreatment of women in Northern Ireland as a stick to beat the Tories, but did they care three weeks ago?
Where were the hundreds of protesters when Stormont ignored a High Court ruling that Northern Ireland’s abortion laws were “incompatible with human rights”, when the Supreme Court ruled that Northern Irish women couldn’t access free abortions on the NHS, or when the DUP used their petition of concern to block equal marriage? Certainly not in London.

New York Pride marchers target Trump, San Francisco parties

New York Pride marchers target Trump, San Francisco parties
- Large crowds turned out for Pride marches on Sunday in New York City and San Francisco, the two U.S. places most associated with the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights movement, with the East Coast city bringing a more political flavour to the event sparked by events there almost 50 years ago.
A group of marchers heading down New York's Fifth Avenue carried photographs of Trump and his press secretary, Sean Spicer, as others waved banners bearing the word 'RESIST' and the rainbow flag of the Pride movement.
In contrast, a smattering of anti-Trump signs in San Francisco was drowned out by a desire to let loose. "It's too good a day to be upset about Trump," said Richard Babb, 66, of San Francisco.
In New York, Brad Hoylman, a Democratic lawmaker in the New York State Senate, said lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people were "under assault" by the Trump administration.
