Mum Warns Parents About Flu Symptom: Is This A Sign Parents Should Look Out For

    A mum has warned parents to be aware of a sign she believed was a symptom of flu in children, so should mums and dads look out for it? Brodi Willard, from the US, explained that her son came home from school with hives - a rash that can appear anywhere on the body - and they appeared even more every time he scratched them.

Post Brexit immigration plan would see EU migration fall by 40,000 a year

  Immigration plans that would see 40,000 fewer EU migrants a year come to the UK after Brexit are being looked at by the Government, according to reports. A leaked impact assessment document suggests EU workers will be given preferential treatment if Britain gains a free trade deal, the Daily Telegraph states. The economic analysis has been drawn-up with the support of Home Secretary Amber Rudd, the newspaper said. A flexible migration scenario, branded as being a midway point between strict policy and continued Labour mobility”, would see EU workers having to earn £20,500 to come to the UK, according to the report. In a no deal scenario, migrants would need to have degrees, a job offer and earn at least £30,000, which would bring them into line with visa requirements for no...

The Labour leader received a total income of £136,762 including his salary as an MP, pay for his role as leader of the opposition and pensions and paid a total of £48,079.80 in tax. He said: “Tax avoidance and evasion deprive our public services of tens of billions of pounds every year and will only be tackled if we have the political will to do it. We cannot expect the public to trust us as party leaders, if we are not prepared to be open and honest about our own tax arrangements.
