    MPs must not bow to Theresa May's pressure on this Brexit proposal for fear of no deal – there are other options

    Theresa May has finally managed to unite her party’s warring factions on Brexit. With time running out to get a deal, previously loyal cabinet ministers wonder how long they should let May flog her dead Chequers horse. Eurosceptic and pro-EU Tory MPs are furious about a plan – confirmed by EU sources (to May’s frustration) at Thursday’s Brussels summit – to extend the transitional period after the UK’s departure by a year, until December 2021.

Only a last-minute stunner from Daniel Sturridge prevented Liverpool's own unbeaten run ending at the Bridge three weeks ago before a typically confident 3-0 victory over Southampton last time out.

    China's real estate investment slows in September as caution sinks in

    Growth in China's real estate investment eased in September and home sales fell for the first time since April, as developers dialled back expansion plans amid economic uncertainties and as additional curbs on speculative investment kicked in. A cooling market could increase the downside risks to the world's second-largest economy, which faces broader headwinds including an intensifying trade war with the United States. Growth in real estate investment, which mainly focuses on residential but also includes commercial and office space, rose 8.9 percent in September from a year earlier, compared with a 9.2 percent rise in August, Reuters calculated from National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) data out on Friday.
