Home Office figures suggest high take-up rate despite anxieties surrounding Brexit

More than 3.3 million EU and European Economic Area citizens have been granted the status to remain in the country permanently after Brexit, the Home Office has said.

In its latest update on the EU settled status scheme, it said 57% of those had been granted “settled status”, the term for those who have been able to demonstrate they have been in the country for five years or more.

Given the pandemic’s likely impact on world trade, we should amend the December deadline

Covid-19 has changed how we interact as a society. But it is harder to know what the repercussions will be for international trade. The prospectus for Brexit was based, in part, on the trading opportunities waiting to be seized by “global Britain”. How does Covid-19 change the balance of risks and opportunities that face us?

The impact of the pandemic on international trade is likely to outlive the health crisis. According to the World Trade Organization, world trade may fall by 32% this year. To put this into context, trade fell 40% in the first three years of the 1930s Great Depression. This time, the fall in trade is self-induced, to save lives. But the contagiousness of Covid-19 exposes vulnerabilities in the trading system.

Leftwing premier Bodo Ramelow voted out as CDU and FDP politicians ‘break taboo’

Politicians from Germany’s centre-right Christian Democratic Union and Free Democratic parties in the eastern state of Thuringia defied their parties’ supposed avoidance of the far-right on Wednesday by ousting the state’s leftwing premier with the help of votes from the nativist Alternative für Deutschland.

State elections last October had left the outgoing premier, Bodo Ramelow of Die Linke, as the candidate with the strongest mandate but without an absolute majority, even in a coalition with the centre-left Social Democrats and the Green party.

We asked locals in the Belgian city to tell us how things have changed since the shake-up

The city has become a pedestrians and cyclists’ joy, especially for people like me who live in the city centre and have no car. As I type, they are busy turning our street into a low-traffic, communal woonerf or ‘living street’. It has become easier and safer to navigate the town on foot or by bike. Having recently returned from the Middle East the changes are even more striking, especially when it comes to my son. We were not ready for him to cycle before but teaching him to cycle on the roads here has been a fun and relatively stress-free experience. The changes have made an enormous difference to people’s quality of life. Khaled Diab, journalist and writer #Environment #Belgium #Europe #Worldnews #Cities

No 10’s miserable pooch has been dragged on to the campaign trail. I know the feeling

My father died more than 20 years ago and I increasingly find that I think of him most on Remembrance Day rather than on his birthday or the anniversary of his death in January. He was 18 when the second world war started and 24 – the same age as my son is now – when it ended and he served in the Navy throughout, first in the north Atlantic, then in the Malta convoys and the Sicily landings and finally in the far east. And yet I have almost no details of his time in the war, because he would never discuss it. He would talk about the war in general, but whenever it became too personal he would close the conversation down. It was a part of him that was unreachable, a place he could not bear to revisit because it was still too painful, even 50 years later. It was only just before he died that he told my mother of his recurring nightmare of the time he had been ordered to sail through a sea of men who had been sunk because to have stopped would have meant getting torpedoed as well. The closest thing I have to a record of his service career is a napkin ring on which he had engraved a list of all the ships in which he had sailed. I’ve started going through the archives in an attempt to piece together his war, but this gives little indication of the personal cost. The fear, the guilt and, yes, the moments of boredom. The records show that he was on HMS Quentin when it was sunk by German fighter planes after sinking a U-Boat and I assume it was for his actions in this engagement that he was awarded the DSC. But I don’t know for sure, as he never properly told me. All he would say was that he continued to man the guns as the boat was sinking. But as he was sunk twice, maybe it was another battle entirely. Remembrance Day is about more than just those who lost their lives in war. It’s also about those who spent a lifetime trying to recover from surviving a war.

Despite social and political turbulence, most EU people report broad levels of satisfaction

Europeans are happier with their lives than they were five years ago, according to a survey in 32 countries that hints at broad levels of satisfaction despite one of the most turbulent periods of postwar history.

The Eurostat survey found that self-reported levels of satisfaction rose in all but three countries surveyed (Lithuania, Sweden and the Netherlands). It found the most content Europeans are in Switzerland, Norway, Finland and Austria. Across the EU28, satisfaction on a scale of 1-10 rose to 7.3 in 2018, from 7 in 2013.

First analysis of the environmental impact of the Munich festival reveals emissions cost

For the millions of people who descend on Munich for the annual booze-drenched bash, Oktoberfest is a celebration of beer, bands and bratwurst.

But as the dust settles for another year on the world’s largest folk festival, and die Bierleichen return to the land of the living, environmental scientists have released the first analysis of methane emissions from the 16-day party.
