Prime Minister Theresa May has been criticised by British and German politicians for the speech she made to banking firm Goldman Sachs a month ahead of the referendum vote on 23 June. Following Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, other national leaders have also accused her of failing to handle the situation properly.

By Elisabeth O'Leary EDINBURGH (Reuters) - Britain's decision to leave the European Union will also mean leaving the EU single market, one of Prime Minister Theresa May's cabinet ministers said on Thursday.

A long-held theory that a flight attendant known as "Patient Zero" caused the spread of HIV in America has finally been disproven after scientists analysed archived blood samples. The experts also believe the virus started in New York in the early 1970s, and not Los Angeles in the early 1980s, as had been thought. Gaetan Dugas was identified in a 1987 bestselling book - And the Band Played On by Randy Shilts - as playing a key role in the spread of the virus.

Britain's economy grew by a better-than-expected 0.5 percent
The falling pound has brought tourists flocking to London looking for cheap deals on Rolex watches and Burberry coats. Since the UK's vote to leave the European Union on 23 June sterling has fallen by around 15% against the dollar and around 20% against the euro. This has been a boon for the UK's luxury industry, which is worth around £32bn ($39bn) a year, because just over half of all spending in this sector is from wealthy tourists from countries such as China, the Middle East, the US and Russia.
By Paul Sandle LONDON (Reuters) - BT , Britain's biggest broadband provider, reported a 1 percent rise in second-quarter earnings on Thursday, in line with market expectations and helped by price rises and strong demand for fibre connections to keep it on track to hit its full-year targets.

The economy’s performance has been better than expected.
LONDON (Reuters) - Car dealership chain Inchcape said its performance was boosted by the fall in the value of the pound since Britons voted to leave the European Union. The company, which operates in Britain, parts of Europe, Australasia, Asia and some emerging markets, posted a 15 percent increase in third-quarter revenue to 2 billion pounds, helped by the depreciation of the currency. "With over three quarters of profits denominated in currencies other than sterling, our reported actual currency performance is benefiting from sterling's weakness," the firm said on Thursday. ...
By Stephen Kalin and Maher Chmaytelli SOUTH OF MOSUL, Iraq (Reuters) - The Iraqi army was trying on Thursday to reach a town south of Mosul where Islamic State has reportedly executed dozens to deter the population against any attempt to support the U.S.-led offensive on the jihadists' last major city stronghold in Iraq. Eleven days into what is expected to be the biggest ground offensive in Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion of 2003, army and federal police units were fighting off sniper fire and suicide car bombs south of Hammam al-Alil, the site of the reported executions, an Iraqi military spokesman said. The executions were meant "to terrorise the others, those who are in Mosul in particular", and also to get rid of the prisoners, said Abdul Rahman al-Waggaa, a member of the Nineveh provincial council.

Hermes' recruitment is significant because the consortium is said to believe that the involvement of a blue-chip British institutional name will strengthen its chances of acquiring a business which supplies gas to 11m UK homes.
