• Obama trolls Trump over 'mean tweet' on late night TV

    By Roberta Rampton LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Monday trolled Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump - known for his prolific use of Twitter to settle scores - making Trump the punch line for jokes on ABC's late-night show "Jimmy Kimmel Live." Obama read aloud a series of "mean tweets" culminating in one from Trump: "President Obama will go down as perhaps the worst president in the history of the United States!" "At least I will go down as a president," Obama said. Kimmel joked that Obama had to "take time away from helping rig the election" to appear on the show, a dig at Trump, who has repeatedly said the Nov. 8 vote is rigged against him.

  • Bank of England to hold rates next month; staying in EU best for UK trade - economists

    By Jonathan Cable LONDON (Reuters) - The Bank of England is not now expected to ease policy until early 2017, according to economists in a Reuters poll who almost unanimously said staying in the European Union would be the best for the UK's long-term trading prospects. Britain voted to leave the EU on June 23 and while the economy has so far fared better than expected, sterling has collapsed to levels not seen in over three decades. Around three quarters of the 60 economists polled by Reuters in the past few days, most of whom expect BoE Governor Mark Carney to stay in the job after mid-2018, said Bank Rate would be left at its current record low of 0.25 percent next month and at the December policy review.

  • Oil dips on Buzzard restart, Iraq; U.S. crude tests below $50

    By Ethan Lou NEW YORK (Reuters) - Oil prices dipped on Monday, with U.S. crude briefly falling below $50 per barrel, on news of the impending restart of Britain's Buzzard oilfield and Iraq's wish to be exempted from OPEC production cuts. Iraq's oil minister Jabar Ali al-Luaibi said the second-largest producer in the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) wanted to be exempt from output curbs as it needed more money to fight Islamic State militants. OPEC hopes to remove about 700,000 bpd from an estimated global supply of 1.0-1.5 million bpd.

  • Baby LynLee 'born twice' after tumour surgery to save her life

"It was a choice of allowing the tumour to take over her body or giving her a chance at life and so that's what we chose was to give her a chance," Mrs Boemer said. At 23 weeks pregnant, LynLee was cut out the womb for a delicate five-hour operation to remove the sacrococcygeal teratoma - which was almost as large as the foetus itself.

  • Closing Calais camp will help secure future of Anglo-French border agreement - UK minister

    Closing the "Jungle" migrant camp at Calais will help secure the future of the Le Touquet agreement which allows British officials to check passports in France and vice versa, British interior minister Amber Rudd said on Monday. French authorities began clearing the sprawling migrant camp on Monday as hundreds gave up on their dreams of reaching Britain to be relocated in France while their asylum requests are considered. Last week the Guardian reported that France's Alain Juppe, who is on course to win the centre-right's presidential ticket and favourite to win power in next year's national election, said he would seek to overturn the treaty, which effectively pushes the British frontier to Calais in northern France.
