  • Most EU citizens living in UK - except the Irish - barred from voting in EU 'in-or-out' referendum

    Citizens from most European Union countries living in the UK will be barred from voting in Britain's referendum on whether to sever ties with Brussels. The franchise for referendum, promised by the end of 2017, will be based on that for a general election – meaning Irish, Maltese and Cypriots resident in the UK will get a vote, but other EU citizens will not. Details about the planned public vote were revealed as European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker was due to hold talks with David Cameron at Chequers, the British Prime Minister’s country residence. The Bill will make clear that the franchise will be based on that for a general election, plus members of the House of Lords and Commonwealth citizens in Gibraltar. q

    “Performances like today don’t help me and I’m fully aware of that.” It was a hell of a time for Brendan Rodgers finally to grasp the art of understatement. Rodgers is famous for his soaring rhetoric, with a particular penchant for phrases faintly redolent of SAS survival manuals – death by football; hunt and suffocate; per ardua ad astra.

  • Mercedes apologise to Lewis Hamilton after pit-stop costs victory

    Mercedes’ head of motorsport Toto Wolff has apologised to Lewis Hamilton for the miscalculation that cost him victory at the Monaco Grand Prix. An otherwise run-of-the-mill race on the streets of the principality came alive late on when Max Verstappen crashed his Toro Rosso. It proved the defining moment as it led the safety car to be deployed for the first time in the race, first virtually and then a real car, and the bemusing decision for Hamilton to pit. It was a horribly misjudged choice, with the Brit overtaken by both team-mate Nico Rosberg and Sebastian Vettel as almost certain victory slipped out of his hands.

    On a Friday morning in April 1983, David Norris, then a 38-year-old lecturer at Trinity College Dublin, took his place in the public gallery of the Supreme Court in Dublin.

  • Kiev and rebels trade blame for death of Ukrainian warlord

    Kiev and separatist rebels have traded accusations over an ambush that killed a prominent warlord and at least six members of his entourage in eastern Ukraine, as shelling continued to claim lives and ravage infrastructure in the region. Cars carrying Alexei Mozgovoi and his bodyguards were blown up and raked with gunfire on Saturday night near Alchevsk, a town in Luhansk that is controlled by the notorious Prizrak (“Ghost”) battalion he led. Mr Mozgovoi came to prominence last year when footage emerged of him overseeing a “people’s court” in Alchevsk that condemned alleged rapists to death. Armed confrontation Mr Mozgovoi was particularly critical of Igor Plotnitsky, head of the so-called Luhansk People’s Republic (LNR), who struggled to rein in local commanders who ran their areas like little fiefdoms.
