  • UK could slash corporation tax to 10 percent if EU blocks Brexit trade deal - Sunday Times

    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.

  • Police fear 'petrol stockpile' as Northolt siege enters third day

    Roughly 80 people have been evacuated from their homes in west London after a stand-off between armed police and a man with "hazardous items". Dozens of police vans descended onto a property in Wood End Lane, Northolt, near Wembley in the early hours of Saturday (22 October) where a perimeter has been set up. A man is said to be in the property, however police have not attempted to enter for fear of his and their safety. A spokesman for London's Metropolitan Police said: "Police attended an address in Wood End Lane, Northolt, shortly after 0.50am after a report of concerns for the occupant and hazardous items inside the property. "Due to concerns for safety of the man at the address and the responding officers, police did not attempt to access the property. "Police cordons are in place, at a 200-metre radius, to facilitate the ongoing policing operation. Armed officers and negotiators are present. "For safety reasons, approximately 80 people have been temporarily re-housed from the immediate area of the address. "At this stage police believe there is one man inside the address. Whilst it is not known what the man has inside the property, police are treating seriously reports that the items could be dangerous and that attempts have been made by the man to prevent access to the address." Police have said the stand-off is not terror related and are working alongside teams from London Fire Service and London Ambulance Service. Dr Rekha Elaswarapu told the London Evening Standard: "I was driving to the [Northolt] leisure centre at around 7.45am and I just saw police vans everywhere. When I eventually got there, five vans were parked at the leisure centre. We don't know what is happening. I have never seen anything like this on such a mass scale in Northolt."

  • Still here? EU reality dims British demand on full membership

    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.
