From butchers to doctors to teachers, people in paired towns across Europe discuss daily life – and facing the big split

I think it would have been better to stay in the EU for business reasons. We’re all out to make a living

Although the idea of twinning towns predates the second world war, it was in its aftermath that the concept took hold as a way of promoting reconciliation and friendship between nations. Coventry, which suffered heavy bombing, was a pioneer. In 1942, women from the city sent a message of hope to the women of Stalingrad (now Volgograd), which had also been devastated. Two years later, the two cities agreed an official “bond of friendship”. Links with Kiel (1947) and Dresden (1956) followed.

The original idea to twin communities after the second world war was to reduce the risk of future world conflict

With Brexit, there will be difficulties. This makes the connection between Coventry and Dresden all the more val... Show more...
 
Shadow chancellor also says only Jeremy Corbyn could lead caretaker government

The shadow chancellor, John McDonnell, has backed MPs’ demands for Boris Johnson to cut short parliament’s summer recess, and said it was “non-negotiable” that Jeremy Corbyn should lead any caretaker government.

McDonnell said the Labour party wanted parliament to be reconvened in the next few days to drive efforts to avoid a no-deal Brexit, and described a letter signed by more than 100 MPs demanding that the prime minister do so as a good initiative.

As the prime minister heads for the Biarritz summit, he has no relationship with the other governments and very little trust

For weeks things have been quiet in the summer heat. But in recent days the normal diplomatic back-channelling between London, Brussels, Paris, Berlin and Rome has cranked into gear before the G7 meeting in Biarritz of the world’s most advanced economies.

British officials have been liaising with their EU counterparts on how to get on the right side of the trade war between the US and China, tread a diplomatic fine line over the European-backed Iranian nuclear deal opposed by Donald Trump and get the rhetoric right on the precarious situation in Hong Kong in the presence of the Chinese leader Xi Jinping. “This is a diplomatic quagmire of a G7,” said a European diplomat.

Perhaps those meetings and Biarritz will be a reality check for Johnson

Berlin prepared for UK to crash out as leak suggests Boris Johnson’s threat has fallen flat

Germany is ready for a likely no-deal Brexit and will encourage its fellow EU member states to hold their nerve and refuse to renegotiate the withdrawal agreement, according to a leaked German government paper.

The document prepared by officials for the German finance minister, Olaf Scholz, before talks in Berlin with the chancellor of the exchequer, Sajid Javid, suggests that the UK’s threats to leave without a deal are falling flat.

Tory will meet Labour leader to stop no-deal Brexit but will not help him become PM

Dominic Grieve has said he would not facilitate putting Jeremy Corbyn into Downing Street, saying his only intention was to meet the Labour leader to talk about possible mechanisms to stop no deal.

Corbyn wrote to Grieve, as well as the Conservative MPs Caroline Spelman and Oliver Letwin and the former Tory MP Nick Boles, as part of his entreaty on Wednesday to get backing to form a temporary government which would negotiate an extension to article 50 and then call a general election.

Nico Schneider aus Arnsberg (36 Jahre alt) erfüllt sich in Praia de Vagueira seinen Lebenstraum - eine Surfschule und ein Haus am Strand, das er gerade baut. In dem kleinen Fischerdorf wird noch nach ursprünglichen Methoden gefischt, manchmal sogar mit Hilfe von Kühen, die die Netze aus dem Wasser ziehen. Und ab und zu wird auch Nachts gesurft. Christian Dassel und sein Team verbringen einen Tag und einen Abend am Meer.
