    The only remaining issue preventing a deal is the Irish backstop. This is the promise that, no matter what, there will be a frictionless border in Ireland. Theresa May’s solution is to make sure it’ll be never be used, by signing up the whole of the UK to the customs union and the single market for goods.

    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.

Brexit’s most tangible disaster and Project Fear’s most lurid poster-child is at last being dryly reported in government ink: grounded aircraft. The government says it "envisages” granting permission for EU airlines, but only “expects” EU countries to reciprocate.

    Election thumping on the cards for Merkel coalition parties - polls

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives and the centre-left Social Democrats (SPD) both face a drubbing in a regional election on Oct. 28 that risks further weakening their crisis-plagued national government, polls showed on Thursday. The drop in support for Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) comes after their Bavarian sister party, the Christian Social Union (CSU), suffered its worst performance since 1950 in a state vote on Sunday. Poor back-to-back results for Merkel's conservative alliance would undermining her standing going into a CDU party conclave followed by the party's annual congress in early December.

    Total ban on new petrol and diesel cars should be brought forward to 2032, MPs say

    A total ban on new petrol and diesel cars and vans should be brought forward to 2032 to boost sales of electric vehicles, MPs have urged. Ministers must "get a grip" and tackle a lack of charging points, one of the main barriers to people buying electric cars, the parliamentary Business Committee warned. The Government outlined a goal for an end to sales of new "conventional" petrol and diesel cars by 2040 as part of efforts to clean up transport which causes air pollution.

    Bee stung: Was Jamal Khashoggi the first casualty in a Saudi cyberwar?

    Missing dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi was at the heart of an “online army” of Saudi activists fighting a misinformation cyberwar, according to friends who fear he may have been targeted because of his support. Mr Khashoggi, who disappeared after visiting the Saudi consulate in Istanbul more than two weeks ago, recently gave $5,000 (£3,800) to “Geish al-Nahla” or the Bee Army, an opposition movement offering cyber protection to Saudi activists needing a safe platform to speak out in the oppressive Kingdom. It is the brainchild of Mr Khashoggi’s friend Omar Abdulaziz, 27, a Canada-based Saudi activist, who claims he was also targeted with a plan to make him disappear.
