The mass exodus of migrants from the Calais “Jungle” camp has begun. About 7,000 people have been housed in the French camp in squalid conditions. More than 1,200 police and officials have started the process of clearing out the camp before its demolition on Tuesday. Migrants queued peacefully for the first of about 60 coaches that will transport them to refugee centres across France.

Residents threw stones at French riot police on the perimeter of the camp, who fired back with tear gas. Migrants will be separated into groups of families, minors, vulnerable or ill people and others travelling alone, then given coloured wristbands depending on which region of France they say they would like to be sent to. They will be given the opportunity to claim asylum. If they do not, they could face deportation.

A woman whose sexual harassment lawsuit against Donald Trump was settled in 1997 says she will counter sue him if he launches legal action against her after the election. "Only when he called me a liar several months ago did I choose to speak out about the times he groped and sexually assaulted me when I did business with him," said Jill Harth in a statement posted by her lawyer. "Trump's calling me a liar again yesterday only strengthens my resolve to speak the truth about what he did to me," she continued.

Formally, yes, the heads of European Union institutions say Britain and its citizens will keep seats at council tables and in Parliament or go on with EU civil service careers in the two to three years left before it quits the 28-nation bloc. In reality, say British lawmakers and officials in Brussels - some of whom were offered trauma counselling by employers after the Brexit referendum four months ago to the day - they are already being sidelined, and expect further isolation. "Why should anyone listen to us?" said a British member of the European Parliament who forecast a December mid-term reshuffle of posts such as committee chairs will see many compatriots lose out.
By Kylie MacLellan LONDON (Reuters) - Britain could slash corporation tax to 10 percent if the European Union refuses to agree a post-Brexit free trade deal or blocks UK-based banks from accessing its market, the Sunday Times reported, citing an unidentified source. The newspaper said the idea of halving the headline rate from 20 percent had been put forward by Prime Minister Theresa May's advisers amid growing fears other EU member states will take a hard line in Brexit negotiations. The tax cut would be used to try and persuade the EU to grant "passporting" rights for financial services firms to continue operating across the EU, the newspaper said, in a sign of the likely animosity of the upcoming divorce talks.

Sure, the stupid mistake, as with most of The Walking Dead, is drawing it out for far too long. Dumpster Glenn was a mistake, yes, as was the Season 6 cliffhanger. After a teaser opening, which was pretty much the promo clip where Rick threatens Negan followed by a Negan/Rick RV scene, we got back to the cliffhanger.
More than 200 drug addicts are on the run after a mass escape from a rehabilitation centre in Vietnam. The Vietnamese government enforces compulsory treatment for drug addicts.

Why is the 'Jungle' refugee camp in Calais being demolished, and just who are the people living there? France is in election season. Charities are extremely concerned that there are vulnerable families and unaccompanied minors in the camp.
The price of Bitcoin has risen 4% in the past 24 hours to over $650, led by Chinese exchanges on the back of a mining conference in Chengdu, which optimistically pointed to the end of the Bitcoin scaling debate. The closing remarks from Huang shiliang, a famous bitcoin advocate in China, were essentially about galvanising the Chinese Bitcoin mining community, who own the majority of hashing power, to push for larger blocksizes sooner rather than later. In terms of BTC/USD, it is the first time since the Bitfinex hack that Bitcoin has crossed the $650 mark.

Walloon chairman Andre Antoine says the parliament will not respect an EU ultimatum to back a massive trade deal with Canada blocked by the Belgian region
By David Milliken LONDON (Reuters) - Two of the biggest bugbears for any central banker - political pressure and an impending surge in inflation - now loom larger over Bank of England Governor Mark Carney than at any time since he took over the central bank. After rushing to stabilise Britain's economy in the weeks after June's vote to leave the European Union, including the BoE's first rate cut since 2009, Carney faces a more nuanced but no easier task next week, when he will explain the Bank's latest thinking on the impact of the Brexit vote. A further cut in rates on Nov. 3, which was signalled by the Bank as recently as September, now looks unlikely because the economy seems to be slowing less than the BoE feared.
