Brits are not doing enough to prepare for a no-deal Brexit, the latest Government papers show. A report presented to Theresa May's Cabinet suggests the public and businesses are simply not ready for a possible no-deal Brexit on March 29. The document, drawn up to inform Cabinet ministers of the likely implications of a no-deal Brexit, said "many businesses in the food supply industry are unprepared for a no-deal scenario." It also said that there is little evidence that businesses are "preparing in earnest for a no deal". The document was released in response to demands from former Tory backbencher and now a member of The Independent Group Anna Soubry. The Standard has looked at some of the key aspect of the document. Nobody is ready for no-deal Despite the Government saying it has cranked up its no-deal plans and widely suggesting people do the same, it appears the advice is not being followed. According to the document: “Evidence suggests that individual citizens are … [Read more...] about Brits not doing enough to prepare for no-deal Brexit, ministers told

Timm President Donald Trump declared a national emergency on Friday in an effort to unlock money for his promised wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, delivering a freewheeling speech that included a number of false or misleading claims. From the Rose Garden at the White House, Trump spoke and took questions from reporters for nearly an hour, touching on immigration, his emergency declaration, China and more as he pressed the need for a wall to counter what he asserted was an "invasion" threatening the southern border. Here's what the president said, and the facts. 1. A border wall is necessary to curb illegal drug trade Border fencing is essential "because we have tremendous amounts of drugs flowing into the country," Trump said Friday, later saying the country is facing an "invasion" of drugs.

In a sign of growing unease about the partial government shutdown, some Senate Republicans came off the sidelines to hash out a deal that would reopen the government as Congress worked toward a broader agreement tying wall funds to protection for some undocumented immigrants and other migrants.

THE Brexit backstop is one of the most controversial issues in negotiations with the EU, threatening to derail the whole process. Here's our guide to the plan and what it means for Northern Ireland and its border with the Republic of Ireland. What is the Brexit backstop? The backstop plan is essentially a safety net if there is no Brexit trade deal. The backstop will see Britain remain in the customs union for as long as necessary until an alternative way of keeping the border open is found. Mrs May wants the UK to have the right to end the backstop at will - but the EU has warned that would render the mechanism pointless. It would ensure that no "tariffs, quotas, rules of origin or customs processes" would be applied to UK-EU trade. At the same time the UK would be able to strike free trade agreements with other countries. On November 5, the Telegraph reported that Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab demanded the right to pull Britain out of the EU’s Irish backstop after just … [Read more...] about What’s the Brexit backstop plan, when could the option be activated and what would it mean for the Irish border?
