How Boris Johnson’s ‘Brexit deal’ will lead to the UK’s EU departure

There have been many key milestones on the way to a trade deal between Britain and the EU — an agreement which ends the transition period and brings Brexit to fruition. Policy Editor DANIEL MARTIN reports. 

January 23, 2013

David Cameron announces plans for an in-out referendum following a renegotiation of Britain’s membership in the EU.

Following decades of Tory splits on the European issue, he said: ‘Simply asking the British people to carry on accepting a European settlement over which they have had little choice is a path to ensuring that when the question is finally put — and at some stage it will have to be — it is much more likely that the British people will reject the EU. That is why I am in favour of a referendum.’

May 25, 2014

Nigel Farage’s Ukip Party wins more seats than any other UK party in the European elections, underlining the scale of national feeling in the issue. It is the first time in over a century that a national election had not been won by the Conservatives or Labour.

Having won a clear majority in the 2015 election, David Cameron announces his intention to hold an ‘in/out referendum’ on Britain’s membership of the European Union, with the date set for June 23, 2016

April 14, 2015

The Conservative General Election manifesto commits to ‘real change in our relationship with the EU’.

May 7, 2015

Cameron unexpectedly wins a majority in the election, forcing him to go ahead with the plans for a referendum.

June 26, 2015

At the European Council, Cameron sets out his plans for renegotiation followed by a referendum. He says: ‘The European Union needs to change. Britain’s relationship with the European Union needs to change, and I’ve got a plan to achieve that: reform, renegotiation and referendum.’

The European Union Referendum Act receives Royal Assent, thanks to Cameron’s majority. It means the vote on EU membership will now definitely go ahead.

Jesy Nelson secret signs that star was about to announce Little Mix departure

Jesy Nelson has confirmed that she is leaving Little Mix after being with the much-loved girl group for nine long years.

From the band’s conception on X factor to global stardom, the 29-year-old singer has played a pivotal role in Little Mix’s success for almost a decade.

However, in recent years it had also emerged that it hadn’t been smooth sailing for Jesy and her journey to stardom came with some struggles.

As the rest of Little Mix vow to continue forward with their musical endeavours despite the news, Jesy is now turning her attention to spending time with the people she loves as she considers the next chapter.

While many followers have expressed their shock about Jesy quitting the band, others seem less surprised about the decision.

Here are some tell-tell signs that Jesy may have already been on her way out of Little Mix.


Jesy dropped out of The Search final

With just hours before BBC was set to air the live final of Little Mix’s talent show The Search at the start of November, it emerged that Jesy Nelson would not be featuring.

While Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall were all present for the grand final, Jesy was no where to be seen.

Presenter Chris Ramsay then explained that Jesy would be watching the show from because she wasn’t feeling well.

He said: “Unfortunately Jesy is unwell tonight, so won’t be joining us but she will be rooting for all of the groups from home.”

A rep for Jesy also said at the time: “Jesy is unwell and will not be appearing on tonight’s final of Little Mix The Search.

“She will also not be hosting or performing at tomorrow’s MTV EMAs.”

Jesy Nelson was absent from the BBC’s The Search final

Fans worry that the singer looked ‘over it’

Just days after her absence from Little Mix: The Search, fans expressed worry that Jesy was looking “over it”.

The concerns were linked to a now-deleted promotional video that featured Jesy looking less excited about the new Little Mix album than her bandmates.

One fan wrote at the time: “Jesy truly gives zero f***s. they literally filmed well over 20 videos she was DONE.”

“The way Perrie is crying and Jesy is over it. I’d feel that way too if I just dropped a solid album with no skips #Confetti,” wrote another.

Fans shared their concerns on social media

Little Mix will continue without Jesy Nelson after she quit

No writing credits on latest Confetti album

Although Jesy does feature on the band’s latest album Confetti, the star has no writing credits on any of the tracks.

While Jesy’s band mates Leigh-Anne, Perrie and Jade have all contributed in some way to the content on the 13-track album, fans noted that Jesy didn’t appear to have been as active.

Jesy Nelson’s final album with Little Mix is Confetti

Jesy’s autograph left off signed copies of new album

Excited Little Mix fans were also eager to get their hands on a signed copy of the new album Confetti following its recent release.

However, fans quickly noticed that Jesy’s signature had actually been left off the signed merchandise.

” @LittleMix Loving the album so far! Although SO gutted as I ordered the signed CD from @amazon and it’s arrived today although it’s missing Jesy’s signature!*cries in palms*,” wrote one fan.

“I ordered this for my daughter’s Christmas present and the same has happened to her one,” added another.

Little Mix star in tears during Radio 1 Live Lounge performance

Fans were left worrying about Jesy after the star became visibly emotional while performing on the BBC.

The songstress broke down in tears but her band mates were able to step in and complete the performance.

Jesy later revealed that she had a ‘panic attack’ while preparing to appear on the show.

“So my nerves got the better of me today,” Jesy wrote.

“I had panic attack right before we were about to sing this for live lounge today and like a pro @perrieedwards jumped in for my part last minute and smashed it.”

Jesy announced ‘extended break’ from Little Mix

Shortly after The Search finale, it was confirmed that Jesy cwas taking a break from the band after missing several events and appearances.

At the end of November, a spokesperson said that Jesy was having a break due to “private medical reasons.”

The statement came just weeks before Jesy confirmed that she would be leaving the band, adding that her time in Little Mix had ‘taken a toll on her mental health’.

Departure of the big boss of the REM

The manager of CDPQ Infra, the subsidiary of the Caisse de depot et placement du Québec (CDPQ) responsible for the Réseau express métropolitain (REM) project, announced his resignation on Monday.

La Caisse explained in a press release that the president and chief executive officer of CDPQ Infra, Macky Tall, has accepted a position with an American investment firm.

Mr. Tall will remain in office until the end of the year to ensure a smooth transition, then take a few months off before embarking on a new phase in his career in the spring of 2021.

As leader of CDPQ Infra, Macky Tall’s mission was to oversee the largest public transit development project in Montreal in decades, the Metropolitan Express Network.

Despite his departure, the project is not at risk of being turned upside down, the CEO having “known how to develop strong and committed teams who are ready to take over”, assured the President and CEO of the CDPQ, Charles Émond.

Macky Tall will be replaced by the current CEO of CDPQ Infra, Jean-Marc Arbaud, who has held his position since September 2018.

“In this role, he will continue to be responsible for the team as well as for the development and direction of projects piloted by CDPQ Infra, in particular that of the Réseau express métropolitain (REM),” said the Caisse.

Do undocumented immigrants who signed their voluntary departure to ICE have legal options? | The State



At least 180 undocumented immigrants were detained and placed in immediate deportation proceedings by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

The process for that agency is easier under the operative Broken promise, focused on those who signed their voluntary departure, where the date on which those people would leave the United States is specified, but they did not.

These foreigners are in the system of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and it would be – in theory – easier to find them, although some change addresses, but it would not be difficult to find them.

“ICE takes seriously its obligation to enforce our nation’s immigration laws”, he delivered Tony H. Pham, acting director of the agency. “Those arrested in this selective operation broke their promise to the United States government and we are enforcing the consequences of that dishonesty.”

Although immigrants who sign these voluntary departures restrict their options to stay in the country, activists and lawyers point out that there are options, depending on each case.

It is important to remind the undocumented that by signing voluntary departure they are agreeing to a final order of deportation, which is difficult to reverse.

Although if immigrants show that they signed out under pressure or duress, that opens some legal channels that would take time, but could work in their favor.

This would have better results if the foreigner manages to prove his statement within the 60 or 120 days that ICE gives the window for him to leave the country. Again: each case is unique and will depend on the evidence.

Those undocumented who are married to a US citizen can apply for their Permanent Residence, but that will require a request for forgiveness, which will force you to go to your country to conduct the interview and re-enter the US legally. This process can take years.

It should be remembered that people deported after breaking their promise must obey the call Punishment Law, which will sanction them for up to 10 years to re-enter the country.

As always, we suggest you consult an attorney before undertaking any immigration procedure and to evaluate your options.

Ecuador made it clear that the Colombian national team is not working, after defeating them historically 6-1 in Quito, result to which the coffee fans reacted and for which they asked the departure of Carlos Queiroz, current manager of the team.

Although the strategist justified himself by saying that this defeat and the previous one against Uruguay were circumstantial, and arguing that he had previously played well, especially on defense, The fans did not forgive him for his lousy technical approach, which he himself made clear by substituting 4 players in the 40th minute.

It was for this reason that the fans asked for the current coach to leave and remembered José Pékerman, who led the national team for 6 years, between 2012 and 2018.

In a post-match interview, Carlos Quiroz stated that he is confident that together with his team he will be able to reverse this situation and demonstrate his quality in March 2021, when the South American qualifiers are resumed heading to Qatar 2021, where the Colombian team occupies the number position 7 of 9 in the general table.

January departure for Arsenal target Dominik Szoboszlai expected


With the international break drawing to a close and club football coming back into the foreground, Arsenal continue to work behind the scenes to build a squad capable of closing the gap to the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the Premier League.

One position in great need of attention is central midfield. The Gunners have lacked creativity so far this term and will hope to solve that in the January transfer window.

Fortunately, for Arsenal, there is a promising update on one of the brightest young creative midfielders in Europe who has been linked with a move to the Emirates.

We also have the details on a potentially dramatic swap deal that could solve Arsenal’s problems, while there is an insight into the decision-making process of the club’s marquee summer signing.

Here is a round-up of the latest Arsenal transfer rumours.

Marsch expects Szoboszlai departure in January


Red Bull Salzburg manager Jesse Marsh believes Arsenal target Dominik Szoboszlai will move in the January transfer window.

The Hungarian midfielder has established himself as one of the most talented young players in Europe over the past 18 months.

This season, he already has one goal and five assists to his name from seven league outings. This follows nine goals and ten assists in 27 league games last term.

And that form is why Marsch expects Szoboszlai will leave the Austrian champions in January, with a host of clubs linked with a transfer.

“Yes,” Marsh told the Futbol Podcast when asked about whether the 20-year-old would leave in January. “The reality is that a guy like Dominik Szoboszlai is likely to have many suitors this winter.

“He’s an incredible talent, and I say this: When you coach young players, you have to love them and love the fact that they’re going to move on and love that they’re going to have big opportunities to prove themselves and show how good they are.”

Arsenal offered Xhaka-Eriksen swap


Arsenal could enact a swap deal involving Granit Xhaka and Christian Eriksen, per reports in Italy, with Inter Milan manager, Antonio Conte, keen to sign a defensive midfielder.

Eriksen joined Inter last January from Tottenham Hotspur but has struggled to earn regular minutes this season. And, per Corriere dello Sport, via Francesco Porzio, the Denmark creator could be put up for sale this winter as the Italian side look to recoup the £17 million they spent a year prior.

One reported option is a swap deal involving Xhaka. The Swiss international is said to be viewed as a potential alternative to first-choice holding midfield target N’Golo Kante.

Meanwhile, Arsenal need a creative midfielder with Mesut Ozil jettisoned from the first-team squad. Xhaka has dropped out of the starting XI in recent weeks following the arrival of Thomas Partey, though Mikel Arteta has leaned on him heavily throughout his tenure in north London.

Adebayor urged Partey to join Arsenal


Mikel Arteta’s Gunners have been starved of title glory for a while now – but things could be changing as a new-look Arsenal side plot a course to success.

You won’t miss a single thing on their journey if you sign up for the brilliant new Mirror Football newsletter, either!

From the latest transfer news to the agenda-setting stories, get it all in your email inbox.

New signings Gabriel Magalhaes and Thomas Partey have hit the ground running following their big money summer arrivals, and the new-look Gunners are going all out for a top four spot and Europa League glory this term.

The Mesut Ozil situation continues to hang in the background and there’s plenty going on in North London to keep abreast of.

Want to sign up and follow Arteta’s journey? Put your email at the top of this article or follow the instructions on this link.

Emmanuel Adebayor has revealed he urged Thomas Partey to sign with Arsenal over Premier League rivals Manchester United and Chelsea.

Partey made the move to Arsenal this summer, and Adebayor, who played for Arsenal, Manchester City, and Spurs, admits he advised the midfielder to choose the north London club.

“He told me that some clubs in England, namely Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, and others have shown interest in him and he needs advice,” Adebayor said at an event in Ghana.

“I advised him to go to Arsenal because I have had the opportunity to play there and I think it will be good for his development.

“Arsenal is more than a club, it is a family and I’m impressed with his performances so far in the Premier League.”

EU cheers Cummings departure: Vote Leave architect’s bombshell No 10 exit is celebrated in Brussels


Dominic Cummings’ bombshell No 10 exit has been celebrated in Brussels as Brexit talks reach their ‘make or break’ moment.

MEP Guy Verhofstadt led the fanfare by hitting out at ‘unelected bureaucrats, unrealistic ideologues’ on his Twitter page.

Meanwhile Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage said the exit of Boris Johnson’s top aide from Downing Street means a ‘Brexit sell-out’ is looming.

It comes as EU sources said trade talks between Britain and the Bloc are reaching the ‘make or break’ point with there still being ‘quite big gaps’ between the sides.

Mr Verhofstadt tweeted yesterday a picture of Mr Cummings leaving Downing Street late last night.

He wrote: ‘Unelected bureaucrats. Unrealistic ideologues… There’s so much irony to the Cummings story.

‘But one thing’s for sure… the legacy called Brexit is damage that unfortunately will not be undone for years…’

Senior German MEP Manfred Weber, who is an ally of Angela Merkel, claimed yesterday’s announcement was a sign of the UK government losing direction.

He told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme yesterday: ‘There are fair questions we are asking.

‘If you want to change in the future, with your background of sovereignty, your subsidies, regulations, then we must have an option an opportunity to react to stop to limit your access to our market.

‘I see what is happening now in Downing Street. We can also see this as a quite chaotic situation where we don’t have an idea what is really the line in Great Britain.

‘So don’t tell us we should be ready for compromise.

‘We need a clear idea from Boris Johnson now and I think it’s now time for leadership – having all the developments in America in mind where London understood it will be not so easy with Joe Biden to achieve an easy trade deal now.

‘It’s time to take over responsibility and come to a common understanding. Britain has red lines, we have red lines, let’s now come to a compromise.’

Mr Cummings arrived home with bottles of alcohol last night after he was kicked out of Number 10 for good.

Boris Johnson had initially offered to promote communications Lee Cain to become chief of staff. But he dropped the plan following objections from his partner Carrie Symonds (pictured with Mr Johnson last week)

It followed a dramatic confrontation with Mr Johnson, who showed him texts allegedly proving he briefed against his fiancee, Carrie Symonds.

In a tense 45-minute meeting, the PM is said to have ordered his most senior adviser to leave having shown messages which had been forwarded to his partner.

The explosive claims were denied by No10.

Mr Cummings’ departure follows Lee Cain, who announced his resignation as Mr Johnson’s director of communications on Wednesday.

Ms Symonds, reportedly referred to as ‘Princess Nut Nuts’ behind her back by Vote Leave loyalists, had thwarted his promotion to chief of staff.

Mr Johnson’s partner would ‘bombard’ the premier with as many as 25 text messages an hour expressing her thoughts on policy.

While Mr Cummings was set to leave at Christmas, it is understood it was Ms Symonds who convinced the PM to order him and Mr Cain to go immediately.

There are fears No 10 will now come under fire from the outside, with a senior Tory expressing concerns Mr Cummings could attempt to ‘settle scores’ on his way out.

It is understood the Brexit supremo and Mr Cain will be on gardening leave until mid-December.

Mr Cummings may continue to work from home to tie up loose ends, but neither man is expected back at No 10.

Mr Farage has insisted the exit of Mr Johnson’s top aide from Downing Street means a ‘Brexit sell-out’ is looming.

He said he had never liked the PM’s outgoing chief adviser, but admitted he was concerned about the consequences of his departure.

Mr Farage tweeted: ‘It is well documented that I have never liked Dominic Cummings but he has backed Brexit.

‘Seeing him leave Number 10 carrying a cardboard box tells me a Brexit sell-out is close.’

The comments came after Downing Street insisted that Mr Cummings’s departure would not affect Brexit talks.

Mr Cummings’s dramatic exit from Number 10 comes at a crucial juncture in the post-Brexit talks between the UK and Brussels.

The Prime Minister’s official spokesman James Slack insisted suggestions the Government could compromise on key principles in the wake of Mr Cummings’s decision to leave were ‘simply false’.

Mr Cummings was widely seen as the mastermind behind the victorious Vote Leave campaign in the 2016 referendum.

Talks on a free trade agreement between the UK and EU have been continuing this week in London and are due to ‘pause’ over the weekend before resuming next week in Brussels.

London and the EU are trying to hammer out a post-Brexit trade deal after the current transition period finishes on December 31.

EU sources have said there has not been much headway in recent days on sticking points they had hoped to resolve.

Meanwhile UK insiders told the BBC there were still ‘quite big gaps’ that needed to be filled.

Neither side feels a draft deal can be struck in the coming days as they race to settle the future before the UK leaves the single market and customs union on January 1.

Departure of Me Annick Murphy: the timing of the announcement was not planned, pleads the DPCP


The announcement of the departure of the Director General of Criminal and Penal Prosecutions (DPCP), Mr.e Annick Murphy, a few hours before the start of US election night on Tuesday was “not at all” planned, her spokesperson assured Thursday.

“On November 3, with all respect and respect, she wrote and sent an email to her employees announcing her retirement next February. It was following the publication of an article and questions that were addressed to us on this subject that we confirmed everything publicly, “assured Mr.e Audrey Roy-Cloutier, by email, Thursday.

  • Listen to Antoine Robitaille and Caroline St-Hilaire’s analysis with Benoit Dutrizac on QUB radio:

“In this context, this is not a planned announcement, but an official confirmation for the sake of transparency,” she added.

The moment chosen by Me Murphy to announce his premature departure as DPCP had just rebounded in the National Assembly. Questioned on this subject by the PQ member Véronique Hivon at the Salon Bleu, the Minister of Justice, Simon Jolin-Barrette, revealed that Mr.e Murphy had warned the government on Monday that she would leave her post next February, before the end of her contract scheduled for 2022.

However, the public announcement was made late Tuesday, just hours before the announcement of the first results in the US election began, an event that has monopolized attention ever since.

“I will agree with the impression that Quebeckers have that there are many questions that arise and that there is work to be done, among others at the UPAC (Permanent Anti-Corruption Unit), there, to regain some credibility, ”admitted Prime Minister François Legault, adding that he did not want to get involved in the affairs of the DPCP.

On Wednesday, the opposition parties questioned the timing of the announcement, with Quebec solidaire co-spokesperson Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois saying that Mr.e Murphy thus fueled the distrust of the population.

The leader of the Liberal Party of Quebec, Dominique Anglade, added her voice to other political parties to ask Mr.e Murphy to speak out publicly about his departure in order to end speculation.

“Tell us why you left, tell us what happened, tell a story that you have to tell against the facts, that will clarify things. I think it would be a good thing to do, ”she said.

As for the Parti Québécois, its Justice spokesperson Véronique Hivon asked to hear Mr.e Murphy as well as the director of the Sureté du Québec (SQ), Martin Prud’homme, in parliamentary committee.

Me Murphy, who has headed the DPCP since 2015, has found herself in the spotlight in recent weeks over the SQ CEO’s case.

The latter has been suspended since March 2019 following allegations of criminal offenses. He was eventually cleared of these, but Quebec mandated the Civil Service Commission to study the possibility of dismissing him for ethical misconduct. A call from Mr. Prud’homme to Mr.e Annick Murphy, in October 2017, would be involved.
