Hit to North East England and Northern Ireland GDP revealed in new Brexit impact papers leak

    The Government's own analysis of the economic hit to GDP from a no deal Brexit would be 16% to North East England, Sky News can reveal. Northern Ireland could also face a GDP slump of 12% if Britain leaves the EU without a deal. Sky News can reveal the latest figures contained in the EU Exit Analysis - Cross Whitehall Briefing, which was controversially leaked last week. The losses are predicted to come over 15 years. It comes as the Cabinet tries to establish a common position on the Northern Ireland border in the crucial subcommittee meeting in Parliament on Wednesday. The SNP's Stephen Gethins asked her: "The Scottish Government analysis has shown that a 'no deal' scenario could cost Scotland up to 8.5% of GDP. Government analysis suggests that Northern Irela...

Meet Ivanka Trump, sizzling first daughters in US history

    The sizzling pictures of Ivanka Trump, the model and one of the hottest first daughters in US history.    The daughter of business tycoon Donald Trump got her start in modelling when she appeared on the cover of Seventeen magazine and has since appeared on the runway for Versace, Marc Bowman, and Thierry Mugler as well as appearing in campaigns for Tommy Hilfiger, and Sassoon Jeans.

Brexit: EU to have power to punish UK at will during transition

    The 27 remaining member states want to be able to act against the UK without having to go through a lengthy legal process. Brussels will have the power to punish the UK at will during the Brexit transition period by closing off parts of the single market to British companies, according to a leaked legal document drawn up by the EU. The use of focused sanctions to suspend certain benefits ... of the internal market, would give the EU the freedom to punish the UK without prematurely terminating the transition period and risking damage to its economic interests. The document does not stipulate what acts by the UK would lead to sanctions, but the EU has made it clear it is concerned that the British government could infringe the rights of its nationals living in the UK...

Why Meghan Markle wore a suit for her first public speaking engagement

    The former Suits actress, who presented an award at the Endeavour Fund Awards in London last week, opted against a gown for a slim-fitting outfit, consisting of cropped cigarette trousers, worn with high stiletto heels and an off-white cream blouse. Here at HELLO! Online, we spoke to body language expert Judi James about the reason behind Meghan's monochrome style. Apart from the confident approach which I think is being reflected in her clothes, she tends to stick to monochrome, says Judi. The tailoring in the masculine shaped jacket, teamed with tight trousers does two jobs, she added. Commenting on the muted tones, Judi explained: It's not too attention-seeking. She's not doing the royal thing yet, which will be to wear something really loud and outlandish. So s...

Did the first lady avoid holding Trump’s hand again

    Did Melania Trump avoid holding her husband’s hand again? Let’s go to the tape. On Monday, as President Trump and the first lady walked before a phalanx of cameras on their way to a tax reform rally in Ohio, the president seemed to reach for and then fumble to find his wife’s right hand. After what appeared to be a botched attempt, Trump momentarily stopped and repositioned himself on his wife’s opposite side. There, he gestured briefly at the press before the couple continued across the South Lawn of the White House toward Marine One. As she frequently does, the first lady was wearing her overcoat a bright lemon-yellow one paired with a matching turtleneck hanging loosely on her shoulders, her arms at her sides beneath it. She carried her handbag in her left han...
