    EU leaders won’t even consider trade deal with UK at Brexit summit this week because of talks collapse

    The 27 EU leaders will not even consider a trade deal with Britain at the “moment of truth” EU summit in Brussels tomorrow, following the collapse of talks on the Irish border this weekend. The shock revelation, confirmed by senior EU diplomats familiar with preparations for the meeting, shows the rising risk of a no-deal Brexit as Theresa May travels to the EU capital in a bid to save her project. Over dinner on Wednesday night the heads of government will decide whether there is any point in holding a special Brexit summit in November or whether the horse has already bolted and they should step-up preparations for a no-deal.

    Theresa May’s Brexit endgame is painful — but she’s not the only EU leader suffering

    Theresa May’s endgame is so painful to watch because it combines the grave consequences of failed Brexit negotiations with the improbable comedy of operetta. Shortly after, we were informed that “key issues remain” and Raab had a day-return ticket home. Since then an exhausted Prime Minister has trundled to the Commons (again) to announce with emphasis that she will not sign up to an interpretation of the “backstop” on the Irish border that she had effectively already agreed to in her bid to sell the Chequers plan in the summer.

Both forwards are doubts for the Reds’ upcoming trip to Huddersfield Town after sustaining suspected groin and thumb injuries respectively while on international duty this week. Mane, meanwhile, was taken to hospital after injuring his hand in a training session with Senegal on Monday and subsequently returned to Melwood early for further assessment.

    Scottish Power becomes first major UK energy company to generate all electricity from wind

    Scottish Power has become the first major UK energy firm to completely drop fossil fuels in favour of wind power, after selling off its remaining gas and hydro stations to Drax for £702m. While customers will still get some electricity from non-green sources that the company has purchased from other operators, the firm indicated it would now be freed up to invest more in UK renewable energy sources like sunlight, wind, rain, tides and waves. Calling it a “pivotal shift”, the company’s chief executive Keith Anderson said: “We are leaving carbon generation behind for a renewable future powered by cheaper green energy.
