    When do the clocks go back for winter? What time and date?

    It’s that time of year again when the clocks go back for winter, gifting people an extra hour in bed. It followed years of campaigning by builder William Willett who published a leaflet called “The Waste of Daylight”, arguing that moving the clocks back in the summer would save on energy costs and give people longer to enjoy outdoors. Daylight saving time (DST) was eventually introduced by the Government the year after Mr Willett died, in a bid to save fuel during the war.

    PM says Brexit transition will extend 'by only a matter of months' as she arrives at EC summit in Brussels

    Prime Minister Theresa May today said the option emerged to extend the Brexit transition period "for a matter of months", but that she still expected it to conclude at the end of 2020 as she arrived at an EC summit in Brussels today. Mrs May earlier faced backlash from angry Brexiteers after she said she is “ready to consider” extending the transition period by a year. Arriving at the European Council summit this morning, she said that the option of an extension of the transition had been floated as a way to bridge any gap between the end of 2020 and the start of a deal on the future EU/UK relationship, to ensure there was no hard border in Ireland during this time.

    Special Report: Why Poland fell out of step with Europe

    Last winter, Monika Pawlik spent her days crawling through mud and digging trenches in frozen ground, training for Poland's home guard. Pawlik is a citizen of the European Union, but the 24-year-old's commitment to defend her nation reflects a mounting unease throughout Poland and elsewhere in the EU. Nearly 15,000 Poles have joined the country's volunteer forces since their inception in 2017, a number that Poland's military planners hope will reach 53,000 in the coming years.

    Delaying Brexit won’t change the loss of trust in Britain in Ireland

    In Brussels last night, Theresa May told the 27 other EU leaders that she was willing to consider extending the post-Brexit transition period by a year. This would mean that the UK would follow EU rules, remaining inside the customs union and the single market and paying into the EU budget until the end of 2021. The Prime Minister is prepared to consider such an extension as a means of unravelling what European Council President Donald Tusk described this week as the Gordian knot of the Irish backstop.

    Theresa May faces backlash over hint to extend Brexit transition to 2021

    Theresa May is facing a backlash from Brexiteers for indicating the UK could extend the Brexit transition period to the end of 2021. EU officials said the prime minister had suggested she was "ready to consider" extending Britain's transition out of the European Union for a further year to allow more time to resolve the impasse over the problem of the Irish border. It would mean the UK remaining within the single market and customs union and subject to EU rules and regulations for almost three years after the official date of Brexit in March 2019, and more than five years after the referendum vote to leave the bloc.

How to tax digital revenues, from fintech to social media, is a puzzle authorities around the world are working on. A solution catching on in Africa - levies on usage - has obvious appeal to indebted governments but a big impact on people like Kirya, who saw the tech revolution as a way out of poverty.

    Does slavery exist in the UK? The government believes there are about 13,000 victims of slavery in the UK, while earlier this year the Global Slavery Index released a much higher estimate of 136,000. While this data gives a good snapshot of what kinds of slavery are most prevalent and who is falling victim to exploiters, it doesn’t paint the whole picture.

    Robot market growth slows as trade war hits industrial spending: robot industry chief

    An escalating trade war between the United States and China has dampened manufacturers' appetite for investment in equipment, causing growth in the industrial robot market to slow, the chief of the global robot industry group said. Many global manufacturers "are now in a wait-and-see mode, wondering whether to shift production (away from China) to, let's say, Vietnam or the United States," said Junji Tsuda, chief of the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), in an interview on Thursday.
