      Hasn't Mogg set up a company in Ireland recently so he could continue to trade Europe?..

      What's the issue here then?

      Is it not being forward thinking and not wanting to be excluded from trading anywhere.

      And shorting the pound big deal it happens a million times a day against all currencies in the City.

      Do we not want decision makers that look at all angles and then decide.

      Brown sold our gold at a low, China plays about with their commodity prices and supply/demand....load of govts do this sort of thing.

      The reason Brexit won is because Cameron protested to remain.
      It is nothing about Boris winning, the news saying Cameron would have to go if Brexit won was enough.
      In a second referendum, if it were said if remain wins Teresa has to go then remain will win.
      It's that simple, vote manipulation by the media.

      Jewish nation state: Israel approves controversial bill

      Israel's parliament has passed into law a controversial bill that defines the country as an exclusively Jewish state.

      The "Jewish nation state" bill downgrades Arabic as an official language and says advancing Jewish settlement is a national interest.

      It also states that the "whole and united" Jerusalem is its capital.

      Israeli Arab MPs condemned the legislation but Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised it as a "defining moment".

      The bill, backed by the country's right-wing government, says "Israel is the historic homeland of the Jewish people and they have an exclusive right to national self-determination in it".

      It was passed after a stormy session in the Knesset that lasted more than eight hours. Sixty-two MPs voted for the bill, with 55 against.

      However some clauses were dropped following objections by Israel's president and attorney-general, including a clause that would have enshrined in law the creation of Jewish-only communities.

      Israeli Arabs make up about 20% of Israel's population of about nine million people.

      They have equal rights under the law but have long complained of being treated as second-class citizens and say they face discrimination and worse provision of services such as education, health and housing.

      Arab MP Ahmed Tibi said the bill's passing represented the "death of democracy".

      Adalah, an Arab rights non-governmental orgnisation, said the law was an attempt to advance "ethnic superiority by promoting racist policies".

      Last week Mr Netanyahu defended the law, saying: "We will keep ensuring civil rights in Israel's democracy but the majority also has rights and the majority decides."

      I have no idea about any of it.
      Sounds more like demographic politics than news.

      Shame as it means their restaurant in Liverpool will close, really like their steak baguettes as well. A shame for the job losses too.

      I read that as 'steak bake'. Definitely a bit more 'cultured' than that.
