European commission president says bloc must prepare for worst outcome

The EU needs to be realistic about the state of the Brexit negotiations and is now preparing to deploy its trillion-pound budget to cushion the bloc from the prospect of a no deal scenario, the European commissionpresident has warned.

21/06/2018 May refuses to say she wants UK to remain 'tier one' military power - Politics live ,,

Rolling coverage of the day’s political developments as they happen

Here are the main lines from Theresa May’s press conference

The government is absolutely committed to increasing airport capacity at Heathrow. This is important, it is part of our future as global Britain, and the ambitions we have as a trading nation for the future. And the foreign secretary, early next week, will be what I would describe as a living embodiment of global Britain. He will be out there showing the UK’s continued presence around the world and the work that the UK continues to do around the world, with our diplomacy, working on so many of the issues and the challenges that we face across the world today.

21/06/2018 Javid’s post-Brexit settlement plan does nothing to reassure EU citizens | Tanja Bueltmann ,,Far from providing comfort, the scheme for EU citizens in the UK leaves dozens of our questions unanswered

UK unveils post-Brexit EU citizen settlement scheme

After leaving us in limbo for almost two years, the government could finally have ended the uncertainty for EU citizens in the UK with the unveiling of details on settled status.

Instead, we find many of the familiar lies and much of the same hollow spin we have seen far too often. Spin that continues to sell this to us as a gracious concession, “allowing” us to stay “in the country where” we “are now living”. Forcing us to apply to stay in our own home, losing rights in the process and being charged £65 for the honour – that is, after all, the essence of settled status.
