(LONDON) #Brexit Deal or NO Deal Latest: Macron and Finnish PM decide its their turn to tell the U.K. we have 12-days and when we can leave the EU: As Stephen Barclay readies visit to lay out contractual terms of the deal to Michel Barnier but the question REMAINS (excuse the pun ) will anyone agree to any deal unless it ‘ Suits What They WANT ‘ #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Sept.19: The EU has set Britain a test it “cannot meet” with its demands for a backstop replacement, the Brexit Secretary has said: Stephen Barclay said the UK should be given another year to find a new policy for the Irish border: “We are told the UK must provide legally operative text by the 31st October,” the cabinet minister said in a speech in Madrid: “Yet the alternative to the backstop is not necessary until the end of the Implementation Period in December 2020: “And this will be shaped by the future relationship – which is still to be determined: “In short why risk crystallising an undesirable result this November, when both sides can work together – until December 2020.

“In summary, the EU risks continuing to insist on a test that the UK cannot meet and that the UK Parliament has rejected three times.”

It comes after Emmanuel Macron and the Finnish presidency of the EU issued an ultimatum in Paris on Wednesday, giving Boris Johnson until the end of September to table workable proposals – or “its over”.

Confidential documents that “reflect the ideas the UK has put forward” on Brexit have been shared with the EU, the UK government says: A statement said it will table “formal written solutions when we are ready” and not to an “artificial deadline”……………..It comes after Finland’s prime minister said Boris Johnson has 12 days to set out his Brexit plans to the EU…………………….The European Commission said documents had been received and technical talks will now take place………………The commission’s chief spokesperson Mina Andreeva also confirmed there will be talks at a political level at a meeting on Friday between the EU’s chief negotiator Michel Barnier and Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay: The technical discussions will be on some aspects of rules relating to customs, manufactured goods, sanitary and phytosanitary – which relates to the health of plants, she said.

MADRID (Reuters) – Britain’s Brexit minister Stephen Barclay urged the European Union to show flexibility and creativity over Brexit on Thursday, saying the Irish backstop arrangement “has to go” and that Britain was prepared to leave without a deal if needed:

Barclay was speaking in Madrid just six weeks before the date on which Prime Minister Boris Johnson has vowed to take Britain out of the European Union by Oct. 31 “do or die”.

Britain wants a deal but both sides must work to reach one, Barclay said: “The prize of a deal should focus the minds of both sides on this need for creativity and flexibility,” he said………………..“So let’s work creatively to secure a deal, a deal the UK is committed to get in, a deal without a backstop … a deal which indeed will pass both the UK parliament and the European parliament.” ………………He listed issues with the Irish arrangement which made it impossible to accept, including the difficulty of guaranteeing it would be temporary…………………….“The backstop will not be agreed with the United Kingdom: The UK parliament has already rejected it three times,” he said: A deal to leave the EU would help manage issues including the treatment of international business groups like British Airways and Iberia airlines operator IAG and logistics around the British territory of Gibraltar, Barclay said.

He added that the conservative government would abide by an upcoming Supreme Court ruling on the parliament suspension ordered by Johnson: Britain’s top judicial body, the Supreme Court, is hearing a third and final day of legal arguments on Thursday over whether Johnson acted unlawfully when he suspended parliament in the run-up to Brexit.

(LUXEMBOURG) #Brexit Deal Or NO Deal But our PM Boris Johnson should not be humiliated or cow-tow to these EUROCRATS who want only a deal on their terms and its time for ‘ Bulldog Spirit ‘ and NOT mealy mouthed comments from Brussels #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Sept.18: Mr Bettel strongly denied his press conference next to an empty podium with a union flag behind it – was an ambush or planned in any way: He said he suggested to his British counterpart that they start the press conference outside as planned because he had no room inside to accommodate all 140 accredited journalists.

When Mr Johnson decided to go to the British embassy to make his statement, Mr Bettel told the BBC’s Katya Adler he couldn’t follow him there: He said he felt the media would have made too much of the sight of Luxembourg removing the union flag and Mr Johnson’s podium, so he went ahead and made the statements about the Brexit process he had always planned to make.

In a BBC exclusive: Luxembourg PM Xavier Bettel says it was never his intention to humiliate Boris Johnson by holding a press conference without him.

(STRASBOURG, France.) JUST IN: Forgone conclusion as European Parliament backed absentee Christine Lagarde on Tuesday as the next president of the ECB paving the way for her to become the first woman to hold the post : Lawmakers voted 394 in favor, 206 against and with 49 abstentions in the parliament’s plenary #Ace NewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Sept.17: “Christine Lagarde is an excellent choice and she has my full support,” Ludek Niedermayer, a Czech center-right lawmaker, told a plenary debate before the vote: Lagarde was not present despite an invitation to attend: “Christine Lagarde is well positioned to stress the importance of other (economic) policies, not just monetary policy,” Niedermayer said.

A shrewd negotiator who has run the International Monetary Fund but has little monetary policy experience, Lagarde was selected in July by EU leaders to replace Mario Draghi from Nov. 1 at the helm of the bloc’s most powerful financial institution: A former antitrust lawyer, the divorced mother of two became French finance minister in 2007, then took over at the IMF when a sex scandal forced her predecessor Dominique Strauss-Kahn to quit.

EU leaders will formalise her appointment at a regular summit in mid October for an eight-year term: Luxemburger Yves Mersch was also voted in by the parliament to become the deputy chief of the ECB’s supervision arm, with 379 votes in favour, 230 against and 69 abstentions.

(TEL AVIV, Israel.) LATEST: Netanyahu pushes for a 5th term in office as Likud and its political allies in Yamina, Shas and United Torah Judaism fail to obtain a 61-seat majority on Tuesday, with lawmakers issuing a decree for a squatter settlement – Mevoot Yericho located in the Jordan Valley – as an official one #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Sept.17: The Israeli government has issued its approval for a settlement in the occupied West Bank, in what looks like a desperate attempt by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to boost his waning support ahead of the upcoming vote. All Israeli settlements on the occupied territories are deemed illegal under international law, yet Tel Aviv distinguishes between those it approved and those it did not.

“Unlike in the April election, President Reuven Rivlin is expected to begin consultations with the factions that cross the threshold only when the results are official: He is expected to limit whoever he tasks with forming a government to four weeks, without the 14-day extension traditionally granted.

Sources in Likud said Monday that if the Likud and its political allies in Yamina, Shas and United Torah Judaism fail to obtain a 61-seat majority on Tuesday, efforts would begin immediately to unseat the prime minister as head of the party: The sources said those efforts would intensify if Rivlin tasks Gantz with forming a coalition government.

Netanyahu said in interviews on Monday that Likud and its allies did not have 61 seats in the latest private polls taken for his party: He said that majority would not be obtained unless turnout was higher than in April in traditional Likud strongholds.

Both Netanyahu and Gantz visited the Western Wall and reached out to voters on social media on Monday. Likud petitioned the Central Elections Committee and blocked Gantz from holding a rally with media at his childhood home of Kfar Ahim in the northern Negev: Gantz warned against the potential for violence in polling stations, and called on Netanyahu to accept the results if he is defeated. In an interview with the Knesset Channel, Gantz promised to learn from what he admitted was a mistake in the April election and not declare victory after the exit polls, even if they are positive: Gantz announced on Monday that if he forms the government, former IDF chief of staff MK Gabi Ashkenazi will be defense minister.

“There are two domains which are of significant importance in the State or Israel: security and education,” Gantz said. “With that, I have decided to appoint Gabi Ashkenazi, a former IDF Chief of Staff and Golani soldier who rehabilitated the IDF following the Lebanon War, for the position of defense minister. Gabi knows how to restore deterrence and a sense of security to Israeli citizens in the South, in the Gaza envelope, in the North and throughout the country.”……………Gantz said another former IDF chief of staff, MK Moshe Ya’alon, who served as defense minister under prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, would become education minister.

“Former chief of staff and defense minister Moshe Ya’alon, a man of unimpeachable moral character and someone who knows how to bring together the factions of Israeli society, I appoint to the position of education minister to repair the rifts in Israeli society,” Gantz said: “Now you just have to decide – an extreme, immunity government or a secular, unity government.”

The foreign minister post has been reserved for Blue and White co-leader Yair Lapid, while the most senior woman in Blue and White, MK Miki Haimovich, would be environmental protection minister. MK Meir Cohen would be Knesset Speaker: “Who would you prefer to face Hamas, former IDF chief of staff Gabi Ashkenazi or the man who gives [Hamas] suitcases full of dollars?” Lapid tweeted, in a reference to Netanyahu. “Who would you prefer as education minister: [Yamina candidate Bezalel] Smotrich and his racism, or an honest man of values like Bogie Ya’alon?”

Netanyahu mocked the announcement, saying that if Gantz has already started allocating portfolios, “What positions did he promise [Joint List leaders] Ayman Odeh and Ahmad Tibi?””

On Sunday, the cabinet issued a decree recognising one such squatter settlement – Mevoot Yericho located in the Jordan Valley – as an official one. #Netanyahu is trying to shift attention from his corruption scandals as he vows to annex Jordan Valley in the occupied #WestBank if reelected https://t.co/ROIjtBd3t8 pic.twitter.com/t6j0u4bfew— RT (@RT_com) September 11, 2019 “The government passed the prime minister’s motion to build Mevoot Yericho,” a statement from Netanyahu’s office said following a weekly government meeting, which was conspicuously held in the Jordan Valley this time.Such movements are quite rare, as, according to the Israeli media, only five similar decisions were taken over the past decade.The fact that this step was made just days ahead of the upcoming snap elections prompted some people, including Israel’s Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit, to believe that it is for the sake of Netanyahu’s electoral campaign.The prime minister earlier vowed to annex the whole Jordan Valley, which accounts for roughly one third of the occupied West Bank, if elected.

Also on rt.com An Israeli soldier in the West Bank. August 2019. © Mussa Qawasma / Reuters Netanyahu’s West Bank annexation plan is vile attempt to win votes at expense of peace – Turkey Mandelblit criticized the settlement approval, arguing that there was “no vital or urgent need” for it and adding that it could be detrimental to Israel’s international posture.Meanwhile, the situation for Netanyahu indeed appears to be desperate. Mired in corruption scandals, the troubled prime minister barely managed to squeak out a victory against his rival, ex-military chief Benny Gantz leading a centrist Blue and White Alliance, in April. People rally in #TelAviv against #Netanyahu’s govt ahead of upcoming legislative elections in #Israel pic.twitter.com/8NBI0r4O3J— RT (@RT_com) September 15, 2019 Yet, he still failed to form a ruling coalition in a development that proved to be quite humiliating for him as he became the first ever prime minister to commit such a blunder.

Now, with his popularity gradually fading, he seems to be ready to stop at nothing to win the support of the rightwingers, which may be crucial for him: However, his trump card of annexing the Jordan Valley might still be turned against him as it could effectively spell an end to the two-state solution and stir up a hornet’s nest of geopolitical tensions.

((DETROIT, Mass.) JUST IN: The United Auto Workers Union Report: Announcement that its roughly 49,000 members at General Motors plants in the U.S. will go on strike Sunday night because contract negotiations with the automaker had broken down #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Sept.15: The decision came after about 200 plant-level union leaders voted unanimously in favor of a walkout during a meeting Sunday morning in Detroit.“We stood up for General Motors when they needed us most. Now we are standing together in unity and solidarity for our members,” union Vice President Terry Dittes said in a statement.It’s still possible that bargainers could return to the table and hammer out an agreement, but union spokesman Brian Rothenberg said at a news conference that it would be unlikely. He said it would be hard to believe that the bargainers could resolve so many issues before 11:59 p.m.

The announcement came hours after the union let its contract with GM expire Saturday night: On Saturday, UAW Vice President Terry Dittes said in a letter to GM members that after months of bargaining, both the union and GM were far apart on issues such as wages, health care, temporary employees, job security and profit-sharing. The letter to members and another one to GM were aimed at turning up the pressure on GM negotiators.“While we are fighting for better wages, affordable quality health care, and job security, GM refuses to put hard working Americans ahead of their record profits,” Dittes, the union’s chief bargainer with GM, said in a statement Saturday night.

A strike by 49,200 union workers would bring to a halt GM’s U.S. production, and would likely stop the company from making vehicles in Canada and Mexico as well: That would mean fewer vehicles for consumers to choose from on dealer lots, and it would make it impossible to build specially ordered cars and trucks.

The strike would be the union’s first since a two-day work stoppage at GM in 2007: On Friday, union leaders extended contracts with Ford and Fiat Chrysler indefinitely, but the pact with General Motors was still set to expire Saturday night.The union picked GM, which is more profitable than Ford and Fiat Chrysler, as the target company, meaning it’s the focus of bargaining and would be the first company to face a walkout. Picket line schedules already have been posted near the entrance to one local UAW office in Detroit.Talks between the union and GM were tense from the start, largely because GM plans to close four U.S. factories.

The union has promised to fight the closures: Here are the main areas of disagreement:— GM is making big money, $8 billion last year alone, and workers want a bigger slice. The union wants annual pay raises to guard against an economic downturn, but the company wants to pay lump sums tied to earnings: Automakers don’t want higher fixed costs.— The union also wants new products for the four factories GM wants to close. The factory plans have irked some workers, although most of those who were laid off will get jobs at other GM factories.

GM currently has too much U.S. factory capacity — The companies want to close the labor cost gap with workers at plants run by foreign automakers. GM’s gap is the largest at $13 per hour, followed by Ford at $11 and Fiat Chrysler at $5, according to figures from the Center for Automotive Research: GM pays $63 per hour in wages and benefits compared with $50 at the foreign-owned factories.— Union members have great health insurance plans but workers pay about 4% of the cost: Employees of large firms nationwide pay about 34%, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation: The companies would like to cut costs.
