  • Britain Facing EU Migrant 'Surge', Warn MPs

    Britain could face a "surge" in migration from EU nationals rushing to come in before restrictions are imposed, MPs have warned. The Home Affairs Select Committee is urging Theresa May to impose a "cut-off date" for them to settle permanently in the UK to avoid a spike in applications. In a report published today, the MPs say moves to restrict immigration - as expected after Brexit - will invariably lead to a sharp rise in numbers before the deadline.

  • May says strong will on both sides to preserve free movement with Ireland

    By Kylie MacLellan LONDON (Reuters) - Strong will exists in both Britain and Ireland to preserve free movement between the countries following Britain's vote to leave the European Union, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Tuesday after meeting her Irish counterpart. May, who visited the province of Northern Ireland on Monday, has said she does not want to see a return to past border controls with the Irish Republic, which will be Britain's only land frontier with the EU. "We benefitted from a common travel area between the UK and the Republic of Ireland for many years before either country was a member of the EU," May said at a joint news conference with Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny in London.

  • Islamists attack French church, slit priest's throat

    By Noemie Olive SAINT-ETIENNE-DU-ROUVRAY, France (Reuters) - Knife-wielding attackers interrupted a French church service, forced the priest to his knees and slit his throat on Tuesday, a murder made even more shocking as one of the assailants was a known would-be jihadist under supposedly tight surveillance. The men arrived during morning mass in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, a working-class town near Rouen, northwest of Paris, where the 85-year-old parish priest, Father Jacques Hamel, was leading prayers. News agency Amaq, which is affiliated with Islamic State, a group France is bombing in Iraq and Syria as part of a U.S.-led coalition, said two of its "soldiers" had carried out the attack.

  • Which Parts Of Britain Get The Most Money From The EU?

    In the build up to the Referendum, we heard a lot about the amount of money Britain puts into the EU – but little about how much we get out of it.  While the hotly disputed figure of £350m a week was widely circulated, the Remain campaign failed to articulate what comes back. In fact, it’s only since the Brexit vote that those who benefit from EU funding have begun to ask: what now? One council – in an area that voted to Leave – notoriously asked for reassurances that this money would not be cut. But who gets the most? These are the areas that, between 2014 and 2020, are scheduled to receive the most money from the EU Structural and Investment fund.
