Meghan Markle preparing to move dogs to London as Prince Harry wedding rumours grow

    Meghan Markle may have dropped the biggest hint yet that she's preparing a permanent move to the UK to be with Prince Harry . The 36-year-old currently lives with her beloved pooches in Canada, where she films the legal drama.

The Sun quoted a source as saying: She misses [the dogs] when she is away and will even get someone to FaceTime her with them. The fact she’s started the process of moving them to England is the clearest hint yet that she sees her future living in London with Harry.

Britain will be forced to accept a Canada style trade deal with EU

    Britain will be forced to accept a Canada-style post-Brexit trade deal with the EU that is vastly inferior to the current arrangement and which imposes new tariffs on imports and exports of food, a leaked document reveals. The memo from chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier will come as a blow to Theresa May and her Cabinet who have repeatedly spoken of their desire to construct a bespoke deal between the UK and the remaining 27 EU members once ties are cut. Ms May said in her Florence speech that replicating the Canada-EU deal would represent such a restriction on our mutual market access that it would benefit neither of our economies. But the document, said by Politico to have been provided to Mr Barnier’s for a preparatory discussion on the “framework for the future re...

Goldman boss tweets support for new Brexit vote

    The boss of US investment bank Goldman Sachs, Lloyd Blankfein, has used his latest Twitter post on Brexit to suggest a second referendum is held.

The remarks marked his third intervention in the debate around the effects of the UK's decision to leave the EU. Goldman is currently mulling shifting staff to Germany's main financial centre. Goldman Sachs, which employs 6,000 in the UK currently, has leased office space in Frankfurt - home of the European Central Bank to house up to 1,000 workers. A month ago he told h...

Retweet of Call for Trump to Resign Was Accidental

    The Pentagon accidentally retweeted an activist’s tweet calling for President Donald Trump to resign. And yes, we mean that literally. The tweet from because of course said Trump should leave the White House due to sexual assault allegations against him, like those facing Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore and Democratic Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota. Col. Rob Manning, a top Pentagon spokesperson, tried to defend the mix-up by blaming it on an authorized operator. An authorized operator of the Department of Defense's official Twitter site erroneously retweeted content that would not be endorsed by the Department of Defense, he said. The operator caught this error and immediately deleted it. But that wasn’t before many noticed what happened. And it’s worth noting that the...
