There are times when we believe something to be true or we act in haste because the information available wasn't complete, but our desire to communicate to the American public and make sure that you have the most complete story at the time, and so we do it. So we are going to do our best every time we can. I am going to come out and tell you the facts as I know them and if we make a mistake I will do my best to collect it, but I think as I mentioned the other day, it is a two-way stream.

Overall I welcome the path the government is taking. I asked around as is my duty to do by several people, councils what they thought of the bill and being an MP I must act without fear or favour so it's my duty to raise five break points that have been raised. The New Homes Bonus, adult social care, the business rates appeal, second homes and the general point on underfunding. If I could touch briefly on five.

We must start calling the wall by its real name, it's a hostile act, it's an unfriendly act and of course there will be consequences in terms of collaboration from our side. We have been helping collaboration from our side. We have been helping the United States regarding anti-terrorism, information, intelligence, of course things will change if Donald Trump insists and continues to say that he will build a wall. OK so in the mildest terms will build a wall.

It has to go to Parliament and ask parliament to empower it to act. That means MPs can put conditions on the Government's power. So they might want to propose amendments to the Government's bill. They might want to have future debates. They might put conditions on future discussions or more detail, and that starts to wrest control away from Government towards Parliament. Be you ever so mighty, the law is above you. So said the late judge Lord Denning.

But Gina Miller's barrister dismissed that out of hand. It is inherently unlikely in that context that Parliament, when it enacted the 1972 act, can possibly have intended that something so fundamental could be set aside by a minister.

He pledged construction would begin on day one. We haven't seen the builders in yet, but some of those close to him say they have an idea of what it will look like. Donald Trump said the wall would be 1,000 miles long, 35 to 40 feet high, and would look as good as a wall is going to look. On the fence... It's not a fence. It's a wall. There's already a barrier, which runs along nearly a third of the border, and that was built after the Secure Fence Act of 2006.

That the steering wheel knows when the driver's hands are and aren't on the wheel is certainly an intelligent feature, and one that ought be standard kit. As for the bit about the different colors: Autoliv is proposing blue for when the driver is controlling the car, green for when the car is driving itself, and red for when the car wants you to grab the wheel. I would argue that there's no need for the blue; you already know when your own hands are on the wheel. Also, during the act of driving, it seems common sense that you want as few distractions as possible for the driver, whose eyes ought be on the road. When I'm drivingparticularly at night—I don't want a circular row of blue lights within my line of sight, and in a closer plane of focus than the dashboard. The part about answering the phone seems particularly crazy to me--but admittedly, I hold the unpopular view that people oughn't speak on the phone at all, whether by speaker or not, while manually driving; I see too many motorists in Manhattan who are yapping away and allowing their driving to suffer as a result.

But of course, Martin McGuinness has stepped down early because of ill health. There are big differences and that generational change is important to note. Although Michelle O'Neill comes from a staunchly Republican family in County Tyrone, she does haven't the IRA past, the baggage of Martin McGuinness. Even she made reference to the fact that he's a hard act to follow, part of that is because of his key role, his central position in filling that bridge betweendown-onists and Republicans.

In general, spending more on big projects and cutting the tax businesses pay should add value to the economy, although whether this will amount to enough to meet the pledges is not clear. However, import tariffs and opposition to free trade deals - The Guardian says Trump has already moved to renegotiate a pact with Canada and Mexico - could act as a drag. The World Bank said the proposed tax cuts would add 0.8 per cent to the US economy next year, but the loss of free trade could hit growth to the tune of one per cent. How are the markets reacting? For now, they appear worried. The dollar is down to its lowest against the pound since mid-December, a sure sign investors are rattled, although it had been boosted to 14-year highs after November's election so has room to fall. Stock markets, too, hit all-time highs in December and remain only marginally down now.

S. and Europe against it. Europe alone is capable of defending itself, if it put real effort into the continent's defense. For Putin to act hoping the West would abandon these three NATO members would be a wild gamble. Moreover, mere capability doesn't provide motive. Even "victory" would benefit Russia little. The countries would be wrecked and conquest would spark irregular resistance. They don't have the same historical and security relationship to Moscow as does Ukraine. Yet Putin made no effort to seize the latter (or Georgia), which isn't a member of NATO; rather, he weakened it to effectively end its chance for NATO membership. At the same time, the cost of conflict would be catastrophic. Moscow would lose a full-scale war. In anything more limited economic sanctions and diplomatic isolation would be almost total. Even China, which emphasizes noninterference with countries' internal affairs, would not back Moscow.

Brandon Turbeville Natural Blaze As Congress now debates the repeal of Obamacare/ACA, it is important to understand what is actually being discussed, the options being put forth, and what we, the American people, actually want. For those of us who want to see a system of Universal Healthcare where every American has access to at least the basic medical available, the current debate has many nuances. First, it is clear that the ACA must be done away with. Despite what Obama cultists may claim, the ACA is not universal healthcare. Instead, it is a massive bailout for insurance companies, rationing of care, and the implementation of austerity under left cover. It has hurt millions of people by draining money out of their pockets for the crime of being too poor to purchase the rationed insurance from a private company at inflated rates. For the middle class, it has been a major inconvenience.
