Theresa May is struggling to get her Brexit deal through Parliament, with much of the opposition centering on the Irish backstop. The contentious mechanism, which is aimed at preventing a hard border in the island, is proving to be a huge stumbling block in negotiations with MPs voicing their dissaproval on two main issues. Some fear the UK could become trapped indefinitely in the backstop while others dislike the fact that Northern Ireland would be operating under different regulations to the rest of the UK. The DUP, which props up Mrs May's government, has also displayed fierce opposition to it and Mrs May has pushed the EU to put a time limit on the backstop. But Ireland and the rest of the EU have refused to move on the matter, insisting on the insurance policy in case future trade talks between the UK and the bloc fail. Below, the Standard answers some key questions on the backstop within Mrs May’s deal. What was planned for the Irish border? A backstop … [Read more...] about What is the Irish backstop in Theresa May’s Brexit deal?
THE Greatest Dancer was meant to be Cheryl Tweedy’s big telly comeback – but bosses are now relying on Strictly Come Dancing pros to draw in viewers. The BBC1 talent show had its lowest audience figures of four million on Saturday. Now it’s hoped the Strictly stars can create a buzz on the upcoming live episodes. And in another desperate move, Cheryl herself will dance with the professionals. It comes as the show is losing out to rival ITV singing show The Voice and haemorrhaging viewers week-on-week. A telly source said: “The Greatest Dancer has been panned by viewers and BBC bosses are banking on bringing in the Strictly professionals to help increase the hype and cross-pollinate the audience. “Strictly is the biggest show on TV and bosses at the BBC know that. “Calls have gone out to all the agents of the professionals to see who is interested in dancing on the show in the coming weeks.” A show spokesman said: “It has always been … [Read more...] about Strictly pros brought in to boost Cheryl’s flop show The Greatest Dancer
While MPs seem mesmerised by their new-found power, the rival party machines are frantically preparing behind the scenes for a snap general election. It could play out like this: Yvette Cooper’s amendment, delaying Brexit until Christmas and forbidding the no-deal option, is passed by MPs on 29 January, and Theresa May marches out into Downing Street the next day to call for a dissolution of parliament.That would, for now, take a second referendum off the table. May’s likely strategy would be to make the election about a single issue: back my deal and restore the authority of parliament, or see chaos ensue. With alacrity, polling day could be 14 March and, if May falls, a new government could reaffirm the Cooper timetable, beginning a new round of engagement with the EU. But on what basis? The answer to that depends entirely on a struggle that would take place within the Labour shadow cabinet, the party’s National Executive Committee and the Parliamentary … [Read more...] about ConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlight If faced with a snap election, Labour must pledge to stop Brexit and rebuild Britain
The North East would be the hardest hit region if the UK leaves the EU without a deal, according to a study by a leading business group. The region’s economy would shrink by more than 10% with its regional manufacturing and automotive sector particularly exposed to risks from higher tariffs and other costs, the CBI said. The CBI’s study - which follows similar reports from other business groups, as well as the Government’s own figures - points out that more than half of the North East’s exports go to the EU, while the hugely important automotive sector is reliant on ‘just in time’ supply chains which would be severely disrupted by additional border checks. Business leaders have now called for MPs to compromise in the hope that a no-deal scenario can be avoided, with a warning that job losses are likely if the UK leaves the EU without an agreement. Sarah Glendinning, regional director for CBI North East, said: “CBI members across the region are … [Read more...] about North East will be hardest hit by no-deal Brexit, CBI warns
