Brussels will not give in to blackmail over Northern Ireland protocol, EU warns

Boris Johnson will meet DUP leaders to demand a return to power-sharing in Northern Ireland as the government seeks to calm a dispute with the European Union over post-Brexit trade rules.

The Prime Minister will travel to Belfast on Monday for the first time since the Stormont election earlier this month.

Sinn Fein made history by becoming the first nationalist party to win the right to appoint a prime minister, but the DUP refused to re-enter government with the party without reforming the Northern Ireland protocol, which according to he, created a border along the Irish Sea.

Mr Johnson is expected to tell politicians to get back to work and outline the changes the government wants to see in the protocol.

The UK and the EU should have a common goal, to find a reformed Brexit deal that enjoys the widest possible cross-community support in Northern Ireland, he will say. He will note that a new deal must avoid a hard border with Ireland and respect the EU’s single market.

Revealed: UK fails to deliver 240m net zero projects

Britain has failed to deliver nearly a quarter of a billion pounds in green projects aimed at achieving net zero even as Boris Johnson urged governments around the world to drastically increase investment in the fight against the climate crisis, The Independent can reveal (Anna Isaac writing).

Some €241m earmarked to offset the UK’s carbon emissions by 2050 was returned to the Treasury in the last financial year by the Business Department, documents show. It is understood the money had been linked to the Green Homes Grant Scheme, set up to improve the energy efficiency of homes.

Labor said the investment could have helped tackle rising household bills that have helped push the cost of living to its highest level in 30 years.

Statue of Thatcher to be erected today despite threats of egg throwing

A statue of Baroness Margaret Thatcher is finally set to be put up in her hometown today.

In February 2019, a planning committee voted unanimously in favor of the 300,000 statue which was originally intended for Parliament Square in Westminster.

Although its unveiling has been delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the statue is set to stand on a 10ft high granite plinth in Baroness Thatchers’ hometown of Grantham, Lincolnshire.

Reports originally presented to South Kesteven District Council showed the statue had been moved to the area due to fears of a self-motivated far-left movement… which may be engaged in public activism .

But after a large-scale 100,000-person unveiling ceremony was approved by the council in 2020, a Facebook group offering an egg-throwing competition at the event sparked the interest of more than 13,000 people. people.

Around 2,400 other people took to the Facebook page to say they would be attending the event, including the egg toss…and potentially the graffiti art.

Jeremy Hunt says the NHS was a rogue system when he was health secretary

Jeremy Hunt has described sitting at the top of a rogue system when he was Health Secretary and said he was deeply shocked by the care failures.

Fear of transparency and honesty in the NHS when it comes to avoidable deaths and mistakes is a major structural problem that needs to be addressed, the current chair of the health and social care committee said in an excerpt from his new book published in The Sunday Times.

In the book, Zero: eliminating unnecessary deaths in a post-pandemic NHSMr Hunt said the corrosive consequences of such thinking were cover-ups in which the Department of Health and the NHS were complicit.

Too often, managers who had failed were retrained for jobs in another part of the country, where they continued to make the same mistakes. And because of secrecy, the wheels of change are moving slowly, he said.

This was not about rogue staff or a rogue hospital. It was a malicious system. A rogue system of which I, as Health Secretary, sat atop.

Mr Hunt said he was deeply shocked by the failures of care, including preventable deaths.

Boris Johnson to pressure DUP as ministers try to whittle down Brexit war of words with EU

Boris Johnson will press the DUP to return to power-sharing in Northern Ireland as the government seeks to ease an escalating war of words with the European Union over Brexit (Kate Devlin writing).

Government sources have suggested ministers wanted to quell some of the heat of the debate, leading in recent days to claims the UK is heading for a trade war with the EU.

But they also clarified that no decision has yet been made on whether or not the UK will unilaterally tear up part of its Brexit deal with the EU.

The idea is expected to be discussed at a meeting of ministers next week.

The Prime Minister will make his call on Monday when he visits Belfast for the first time since the Stormont election earlier this month.
