What Israel means to Jewish people in Northern Ireland - and did Prince William's visit show it in better light? BelfastTelegraph.co.uk Last week Prince William made a historic visit to Israel, long known as the homeland of the Jewish people.

James Forsyth 2 July 2018 6:30 PM 2 July 2018 6:30 PM Share Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Email Whatsapp Theresa May’s appearance in the Commons today debuted some new language but didn’t tell us much about what she’ll set out to the Cabinet on Friday. May repeated that membership of the European Economic Area would not respect the result of the referendum. Now, she has said this several times before but her comment will reassure some Brexiteers. They’ll be less reassured, though, by her dodging the question when Jacob Rees-Mogg asked her if the UK would continue to be bound by the Common External Tariff after Brexit. May was conciliatory in her tone at the despatch box, but she seemed particularly keen to calm Brexiteers. When Desmond Swayne asked her if the deal would be recognisably Brexit, she told him: ‘There has been much jocularity about Brexit meaning Brexit but it does mean Brexit’. Perhaps, the most … [Read more...] about Theresa May: Brexit does mean Brexit

Roger Scully 27 June 2018 4:35 PM 27 June 2018 4:35 PM Share Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Email Whatsapp Politicians in Wales sometimes complain, at least in private, about the lack of media and public attention they receive. But Andrew RT Davies’ resignation as leader of the Conservatives in the Welsh Assembly, means that Welsh politics is back in the spotlight. With the prospect of simultaneous leadership elections running over the summer for all four Assembly parties, this looks set to continue. The announcement in April that First Minister Carwyn Jones would stand down as Welsh Labour leader by the end of the year was followed last week by Ukip in Wales declaring that they would ballot their membership over who should lead their fractious National Assembly group. There have also been rumblings for some time within Plaid Cymru over their lack of political progress; a challenge to Leanne Wood as party leader now appears almost inevitable. There had also … [Read more...] about What does Andrew RT Davies’ resignation mean for Welsh Tories?
