PETERHEAD, SCOTLAND – Giving greater fishing access to European vessels in British waters would “cut the throat” of the UK’s fish industry, fishermen have warned Keir Starmer. Labour has said it will seek to renegotiate elements of the Brexit trade deal to reduce red tape on food exports and imports to and from the EU, by aligning with Brussels rules in this area. But senior figures in Brussels suggested they would demand greater access to British fishing waters in return, using the talks to pursue “offensive interests”, The Times reports. It comes after EU insiders told i that Labour may ..read more

White blood cells are part of the body’s immune system which help to fight disease. The Spain-based Association of Drug Affected Patients (Adaf), which has campaigned to bring in more controls on the drug in the country, cla ..read more

Almost exactly eight years on from the Brexit vote, there’s a man in Wales who hasn’t got a good word to say about it. A man who believed we’d now have net zero migration, thriving small businesses, less red tape and more national control. He is, he will tell you, genuinely disappointed. That man, it might surprise you to know, is Nigel Farage. Yup, Nigel is back – telling the crowd at his manifesto launch, in the Welsh valleys of Merthyr Tydfil, that he shares their grievance with what has happened. Of course he does. He’s always there to share your grievance. Even if he’s caused it in the fi ..read more

If there is one comment that illustrates how badly the Conservative Party has lost its way, perhaps this was it. “Rishi Sunak is a really nice and deeply honourable guy,” one Cabinet minister told The Times this week. Nothing unusual there, you might think – just another politician talking up the strengths of their party leader. Except this assessment of Sunak’s integrity wasn’t meant as praise. It was a critique. The charge? That the Prime Minister is too nice – that he is letting his principles stop him launching the type of aggressive personal attacks on Sir Keir Starmer that some Tory mini ..read more

Now Kim and Putin are as thick as thieves. The North Korean despot gushed last week that the pair now enjoyed an “unbreakable relationship of comrades-in-arms”, as plans were finalised for Putin’s visit this week to the Stalinist state, where the Kim dynasty presides o ..read more

Spring downpours and the unrelenting cost of living squeeze saw consumers cut food shopping even as grocery inflation fell to its lowest point since 2021, latest figures show. Sales of warming soup sales soared but suncare products remained on the shelves as shoppers coped with the deluge – the sixth wettest spring on record, according to provisional figures from the Met Office. Grocery prices rose 2.1 per cent higher than a year ago, slowing for the 15th month in a row from May’s 2.4 per cent, according to Kantar who analyse supermarket till prices, sales and market share.
