    Why EU doesn't want to give Brexit Britain plain trade deal

    Britain and the European Union will launch talks next Monday on a new post-Brexit partnership due to start in 2021, but the two sides are already trading barbs on the scale and scope of their trade cooperation. Britain says it wants a simple free trade agreement such as the EU has with Canada or Japan, which would mean significantly more trade frictions than there are currently between the world's largest trading bloc and its fifth biggest economy. Here are the EU's arguments for refusing to grant Britain a plain trade deal.

    20 pledges for 2020: Driving electric is a great idea - until miscalculations lead you down a longer road than you anticipate

    Since I began my sustainable odyssey to learn about the realities of the electric car, I have been told time and again that running one is fine if you have a charging box at home. Twitterers, car company folk, people with electric cars, anyone; they tell the same tale. More or less, with a 200 mile plus range on most of the new designs, you'll hardly ever need to use a public charger out in the road.But...sometimes you will. For the last week or so I've been driving a Nissan Leaf on my travels, and I've still found it a bit unnerving. In making some triangular journeys from London to Heathrow and then up to the Midlands and back, it wasn't quite possible to do the full mileage on one charge - even though this Leaf was equipped with the larger battery pack that gives it a real world range of 239 miles.

    By all means #BeKind – but don’t conflate valid criticism of Laurence Fox with bullying

    I’ll admit it, I winced when I first saw it. Not because of the concept itself, but precisely because of who had already latched onto it: Piers Morgan, Katie Hopkins and now, in defence of Laurence Fox of all people, Hugh Grant. The message? To “be kind”.It made perfect sense in the wake of Caroline Flack’s death, whose day to day life couldn’t have been made easier by attacks online, either by individuals or some parts of the media. We were reeling, confused, perhaps reminded of our own ties to death by suicide through loved ones, or our own experiences. After tragedies like that, kindness always seems like the most logical move. Until it isn’t.

    New terror laws come into force two days before extremist due to be freed from prison

    Emergency legislation to prevent the automatic release of terrorist prisoners has become law - two days before the latest extremist offender was due for release. The government rushed the Terrorist Offenders (Restriction of Early Release) Bill through parliament, after two former terrorist prisoners went on to launch attacks in London within two months of each other. The change will affect around 50 prisoners, due for automatic release halfway through their sentences, making sure they now serve at least two-thirds of their prison term before they are considered eligible for release.

    The Londoner: Dimbleby says W1A has BBC to a T

    David Dimbleby issued a stark warning to the BBC yesterday saying “a lot of garbage goes on” within the Corporation as he urged it to get its house in order. “W1A was absolutely right. There are a lot of people talking about ‘I’m head of ideas, I’m head of originality,’” he said praising the depiction of the BBC in W1A, the TV satire produced by the organisation. “If I were director general of the BBC… I wouldn’t want to go in consoling the BBC that everything’s going to be all right, because everything’s not all right,” said the former Question Time host and Beeb veteran. “I would want to demonstrate a real powerful, radical approach to what the BBC is doing.”The BBC is currently scouting for a new director general and the Government will appoint a new chairman next year, as fears rise that No10 will make changes to the licence fee on which it depends. “There’s a lot of overblown spending, duplication of resources. It never gets handled,” added Dimbleby. ‘I would go for a chairman who can genuinely make the point about the role of the BBC in a democratic society.” Dimbleby is not the first BBC star to back changes to the broadcaster. Match of the Day host Gary Lineker recently suggested it introduces a “voluntary licence fee”.
