The British government could agree to free movement of people during a Brexit transition period, newspapers reported on Friday in what would be a major reversal of current plans.
Brussels is seeking to block the UK Government from carrying out criminal record checks on EU nationals who apply for settled status in Britain post Brexit. EU negotiators want the European Court of Justice (ECJ) to oversee the implementation of any agreement on citizens' rights, a move which has received criticism from the UK. Britain's current proposals would see anyone who has already lived in the UK for five years given a new “settled status”, securing their position in the country.
Britain risks losing clout in the aerospace industry, one of its largest skilled employers, due to concerns over its departure from the European Union, a corporate overhaul at Airbus and a new Franco-German push on defense, industry insiders say. Initiatives from a new continental combat jet to a decision by Airbus (AIR.PA) to downgrade its UK representation, as well as the redeployment of some research projects, have left the $90-billion UK sector feeling increasingly sidelined.
Antonio Conte has revealed that Chelsea’s decision to get rid of controversial Spanish striker Diego Costa was made in January. The Italian manager, who won the Premier League last season in his first campaign in English football, was reportedly involved in an infamous text message with Costa, in which he told the Spaniard he was not needed. According to the BBC, Conte texted his players wishing them a good holiday, to which Costa gave a jokey reply.
The pound has tumbled to an eight-month low against the euro, spelling higher costs for British holidaymakers getting ready for summer breaks. Sterling slipped close to €1.11 as the euro strengthened in reaction to remarks by European Central Bank (ECB) president Mario Draghi while the UK currency was again buffeted by fears over Brexit. It will weaken the spending power of British families preparing to flock to Spanish beaches and French campsites when school holidays begin later this week.
With the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's five-day tour of Poland and Germany with Prince George and Princess Charlotte coming to a close today, the world's press have spent the last week with their camera lenses pointed constantly in the direction of the young family. Having previously battled humidity while hiking in India and unpredictable weather in Canada, Kate has faced a number of tricky sartorial missions. Thankfully, the seemingly calm Western Europe summer has proven beneficial for the Duchess in the style stakes this week.
