  • 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.

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.

  • 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.

  • Greece 'ready to do economic deal', but won't be humiliated: Tsipras

    Greece is ready to accept a “viable and long-lasting” deal with lenders but not on “humiliating terms”, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has told his ruling Syriza party. Syriza’s first four months in power have been dominated by negotiations with the heavily indebted country’s creditors, including the European Union and the International Monetary Fund. Although he said negotiations had entered a final stretch, Mr Tsipras hinted there was much ground still to be covered and said the Greek people cannot take more austerity. There are rumblings that Mr Tsipras may be ready to compromise but lawmakers from the party’s left wing have warned they will not accept a deal that keeps the austerity policies which have devastated Greece’s economy. q
