Johnson ignores fears that taking power away from supreme court will threaten workers’ rights

Downing Street has confirmed a plan to allow lower courts to roll back EU legal rulings following Brexit, a plan that prompted concerns that it will become easier to challenge European standards in areas such the workers’ rights and the environment.

Under plans made by Theresa May, the incorporation of all EU case law made by the European Court of Justice into UK law after departure would have left the supreme court as the only body able to overturn these decisions.

Prospect of crashing out of EU leaves UK more exposed to global financial risks, thinktank says

The UK’s GDP growth rate will slip to 1% next year even if a no-deal Brexit is avoided, according to the Organisation for Economic Development and Cooperation.

The OECD said the economy would slow down from growth of 1.2% this year if parliament passes Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal before the 31 January deadline, before returning to 1.2% in 2021.

Businessman who has given party more than £1.3m denies he is spy for Kremlin

The Conservative donor Alexander Temerko has called for the publication of the parliamentary report on Russian influence in British politics, suppressed by Boris Johnson, and denied claims he is a Kremlin spy.

In an interview with the Guardian, Temerko said he supported the report’s disclosure before next month’s election: “My position is we should publish it. My party says we need to do Brexit because we are democrats but we can’t release the report. It’s clearly a contradiction.”

Learning about this riot organized and paid for by the #GOP helped me understand why every single left-leaning protest at least since Trump took office has been criticized by #conservatives as being allegedly funded by wealthy #Democrats.

It has become a common pattern by conservatives to assume Democrats are using the same underhanded and expensive tactics they have used themselves to get back and stay arguably illegitimately in power.
