Theresa May pulls Brexit deal vote as she heads to Brussels
The PM avoids a parliamentary showdown on her EU agreement as she admits she would have suffered a "significant" loss.

Theresa May has dramatically decided to pull a House of Commons vote on her Brexit deal after admitting she would suffer a "significant" defeat.

In a statement to MPs on Monday, the prime minister confirmed she will delay a vote on her EU agreement, which had been scheduled for Tuesday night, as she attempts to keep alive both her deal and her premiership.

Mrs May told the Commons she will instead head to an EU summit in Brussels this week to discuss the "clear concerns" of MPs about her deal's so-called backstop arrangement.

More than 160 countries have signed a historic agreement to cooperate on managing migration following months of international controversy.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel hailed the signing of the UN accord as an "important day" but insisted it was "about nothing less than the foundation of our international co-operation".

The first global compact for safe, orderly and regular migration was adopted at a summit in Marrakesh on Monday.

'Werewolf' killer Mikhail Popkov convicted of 56 more murders
Mikhail Popkov, one of Russia's worst ever serial killers, is already in jail after being convicted in 2015 of murdering 22 women.

A Russian serial killer nicknamed the "werewolf" who is serving a life sentence for killing 22 women has been convicted of 56 more murders.

Former policeman Mikhail Popkov, one of Russia's most prolific serial killers, was found guilty of killing 56 people between 1992 and 2007 by a court in the Siberian city of Irkutsk.

He confessed to 59 murders but investigators had not managed to prove three of the crimes took place, according to local reports.

Vijay Mallya: Billionaire 'pl***oy' should be extradited to India, court rules
The "King of Good Times" is accused of taking loans with no intention of repaying them while trying to save Kingfisher Airlines.
16:59, UK,
Monday 10 December 2018

Billionaire "pl***oy" Vijay Mallya should be extradited from the UK to India to face fraud charges over the collapse of Kingfisher Airlines, a court in London has ruled.

The 62-year-old, nicknamed the "King of Good Times" due to his extravagant lifestyle, is wanted in India over £1.1bn in loans that his now defunct airline took out from Indian banks.

Indian authorities claim he had no intention of repaying them as he knew the airline was failing, and they accused him of not spending the money on what he said he was going to.

Mallya, who used to own Kingfisher beer and co-owned Formula One team Force India, which went into administration in July, has denied any wrongdoing.

He says the case is politically motivated so he will not get a fair trial in India.

England's chief magistrate, Judge Emma Arbuthnot, said false representations had been made to Indian banks over what the loans would be used for - and she ruled there was evidence of conspiracy to defraud lenders and of money laundering.

She accused the banks of making a number of failings but said there was little evidence that senior officials at state-owned IDBI had been involved in planning to defraud their own bank.

Officials might have been in "the thrall of this glamorous, flashy, famous, bejewelled, bodyguarded, ostensibly billionaire pl***oy who charmed and cajoled" them into ignoring their own rules and regulations, she said at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Monday.

The judge said Mallya used the loans for, among other things, "vanity projects" including Force India, which received payments at a time when it was struggling in 2010.

She added: "I have found that on the face of it, [Mallya] was doing everything he could by using honest or dishonest means to keep the company going.

"A spell in custody is likely to help him cut down on alcohol."

Ordering his extradition, she said there was a prima facie case against the tycoon, who moved to Britain in March 2016. Her ruling must now be approved by Home Secretary Sajid Javid.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi would likely benefit from his extradition, which could fall months before an election. Opposition parties have accused the government of giving the billionaire "free passage" to flee - which Mallya denies.

Mr Modi is facing pressure from political opponents to bring to justice several people who have fled India to escape prosecution from authorities, many of them for loan defaults.

"It's a victory for ethics and probity. It's also a signal to all that nobody can cheat India, its people, economy, and go hide somewhere in the world," Indian finance minister Arun Jaitley said.

Judge Arbuthnot warned Mallya, who was released on bail, that "you may have a long process ahead of you".

He can appeal the decision within 14 days to London's High Court, and the home secretary's decision can also be appealed to the High Court and ultimately the Supreme Court.

Mallya, talking outside court, said: "The judge herself said it's a lengthy process that I need to pursue here in the UK, which I will do.

My legal team over the next few days will review this judgement in detail and decide the way forward."

The Indian government said they would seek £216,000 in legal costs.

Brexit donors: Theresa May's deal is worse than staying in the EU
Donors say the Leave victory has been "squandered" by "cowards" as they vow to bankroll a Brexit political party.
17:00, UK,
Saturday 08 December 2018

Three of the biggest donors to the Leave campaign have told Sky News that they are dismayed by the progress of Brexit and that it would be better for Britain to remain in the European Union than sign up to Theresa May's withdrawal agreement.

The trio, who offered more than £5m in donations for the Leave campaign, each offered scathing criticism of the political process and insisted that Brexit had been "hampered", "squandered" or "obstructed".

Billionaire financier Peter Hargreaves said there would be "no Brexit" because politicians "are cowards".
Investment manager Jeremy Hosking, a major shareholder in Crystal Palace football club, said Mrs May's deal would put the UK "in a straitjacket".
Stuart Wheeler, founder of spreadbetting giant IG Index, said the UK had been reduced to "subservient begging".
Mr Hargreaves, who was behind the biggest personal donation to the Leave campaign, told Sky News that he thinks Brexit will not happen because politicians are "completely out of touch" with the will of the people.

A teacher is facing six charges after forcibly cutting a pupil's hair in lessons and brandishing scissors at another while singing the Star Spangled Banner.

Margaret Gieszinger was held on $100,000 bail before being released after a video emerged of the incident in her California classroom earlier this week.

The video, which has been posted on social media, shows her telling a student to "take a seat", before she starts singing the US national anthem loudly as she snips off locks of his hair and casually tosses them behind her.

Labour ready to form government on Wednesday if PM deal rejected

Sunday 09 December 2018

Jeremy Corbyn is ready to take over as prime minister of a minority government on Wednesday morning if MPs reject Theresa May's Brexit deal, Labour has told Sky News.

A party spokesperson vowed to "reset" negotiations with Brussels and "take the country forward" should the prime minister be defeated in parliament.

It came as Brexit minister Kwasi Kwarteng insisted the crunch vote would go ahead on Tuesday, amid reports it could be pulled to spare the government a large loss.

1,723 arrested in 'yellow vest' protests in France
Fresh nationwide clashes put further pressure on Emmanuel Macron, who is set to make major announcements in the coming week.
10:25, UK,
Sunday 09 December 2018

More than 1,700 people were arrested across France during the latest "yellow vest" protests, which left 135 people injured and caused widespread damage.

Of the 1,723 detained on Saturday, 1,220 were ordered to be held in custody, according to the interior ministry.

It followed a nationwide security crackdown with some 89,000 police officers on the streets, including 8,000 in Paris alone, aimed at preventing a repeat of the previous weekend's rioting.

Parts of Paris were placed in lockdown, with tourist attractions including the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre closed and shops along the Champs-Elysees boarded up.

Despite the security clampdown clashes broke out in several cities across the country, including Marseille, Bordeaux and Lyon and Toulouse, during a fourth weekend of protests against rising living costs and the embattled French President Emmanuel Macron.

Paris again saw the worst of the of the violence as protesters, wearing their distinctive yellow safety jackets, set fire to cars, burned barricades and smashed windows.

Police, backed up by armoured vehicles, responded with tear gas and water cannon. Baton-wielding sn**ch squads were also in operation.

More than half of those injured - 71 - were in the capital, seven of them police officers.

Official estimates put the number taking part in Saturday's protests at 136,000 people, including 10,000 in Paris.

Paris deputy mayor Emmanuel Gregoire told France Inter radio the damage was more widespread that the previous week.

"With fewer barricades, there was much more dispersion, so many more places were impacted by violence," he said.

High winds and torrential rain overnight hampered the effort to clean up tear gas canisters and debris left from protesters' fires and looting.

President Emmanuel Macron broke his silence to tweet appreciation for the police, but pressure is mounting on him to respond to people's grievances.

He praised "the courage and exceptional professionalism" of the security forces.

A French government spokesman has said Mr Macron is due to make major announcements in the coming week.

Four people have been killed since the protests began in mid-November.

France braces for trouble, Macron to address 'yellow vest' anger

France hunkered down for another wave of potentially violent protests on Saturday as embattled President Emmanuel Macron planned to address the nation next week over public fury at the high cost of living, senior allies said.

Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said the three-week-old “yellow vest” revolt had “created a monster” and vowed police would have no tolerance for violence, with much of Paris in lockdown and tens of thousands of police deployed nationwide.

Named after the fluorescent safety vests that all French motorists must carry, the protesters are billing their planned action on Saturday as “Act IV” of worst unrest seen in the capital since the 1968 student riots.

India's ruling party anti-Muslim, anti-Pakistan: Imran Khan
In September, India had rejected Pakistan's proposal to hold foreign ministers' level talks in New York on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly.

In September, India had rejected Pakistan's proposal to hold foeign ministers' level talks in New York on the sidelines of United Nations General Assembly.
HIGHLIGHTS
Imran Khan said India rejected proposal of talks with Pakistan because of upcoming elections
Let’s hope that after the election is over, we can again resume talks, he said
Imran added that resolving 26/11 Mumbai attacks case is in Pakistan's interest
Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has called the "ruling party" of India -- the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) -- "anti-Muslim and anti-Pakistan".

"The ruling party [of India] has an anti-Muslim, anti-Pakistan approach," said Imran in a recent interview to a top US daily. He said India dismissed his suggestion of peace talks because of upcoming elections. "Let’s hope that after the election is over, we can again resume talks with India," he said.

Speaking about the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, Imran said that he also wants something done about the attackers of Mumbai. "I have asked our government to find out the status of the case. Resolving that case is in our interest because it was an act of terrorism," he told the Washington Post.

Soon after taking charge of Pakistan as its prime minister in August this year, Imran Khan had said that he was ready for peace talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Pakistan had also sent a proposal in September to hold foreign minister-level talks in New York on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly. India, however, had accepted and then rejected the proposal within 24 hours blaming Islamabad for killing of a security personnel in Jammu and Kashmir and accusing it of glorifying terrorism.

Calling India's decision "arrogant", Imran had tweeted: "Disappointed at the arrogant & negative response by India to my call for the resumption of the peace dialogue. However, all my life I have come across small men occupying big offices who do not have the vision to see the larger picture."

In a significant move, both India and Pakistan gave the green signal to much-awaited Kartarpur Saheb corridor last month which will connect Darbar Sahib in Pakistan's Kartarpur with Dera Baba Nanak shrine in India's Gurdaspur district. Darbar Sahib is the final resting place of Sikh faith's founder Guru Nanak Dev.

Denmark plans to send "unwanted" migrants to remote island

The Danish government has come up with a plan to send dozens of rejected migrants to a remote island that currently houses a research center conducting tests on diseased animals.

Denmark's center-right government and right-wing Danish People's Party reached an agreement under its new finance bill for 2019 to decontaminate Lindholm Island – located around two miles from the nearest shore – and then use it hold as many as 100 people by 2021, according to a government website. Among the migrants who could be sent to the island are criminals, rejected asylum seekers and others who can't return to their home country "due to the risk of ill-treatment."

"If you are unwanted in Danish society, you should not be a nuisance to ordinary Danes," Denmark's immigration minister Inger Støjberg wrote on Facebook. "They are undesirable in Denmark, and they must feel it."

The island currently houses the Veterinary Institute of the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), which performs research on infectious diseases in livestock and makes diagnoses in sick animals. DTU would move out of Lindholm by the end of next year.

The facilities for migrants are expected to be built by 2021. Once ready, residents would be required to report to the island center every day or face jail time. Ferry service to and from the island would be available but limited.

"Expelled, criminal aliens have nothing to do in Denmark. Until we can get rid of them, we now move them out on the island Lindholm in Stege Bay, where they will be obliged to stay at the new exit center at night. And there will be police present around the clock," the Danish People's Party tweeted, along with an animation of a migrant being placed on the island.
