Here are 4 possible Brexit outcomes that we could get by 31

first_img Image: PA Wire/PA Images 32 Comments BORIS JOHNSON’S PREMIERSHIP hasn’t changed anything so far when it comes to Brexit. With the make-up of the House of Commons the way it is, it’s impossible to imagine any Brexit deal that would break the current impasse, backstop or not.So what’s next?An early electionDespite the two motions tabled by Boris Johnson failing to get the votes it needed to trigger an election, this still appears the most likely outcome – it’s a matter of the opposition waiting for the best moment to allow an election. Under British law, the next election is not due until 2022 and a two-thirds parliamentary majority is required (that’s 434 MPs) if the government wants to hold a vote before that.Labour abstained on Johnson’s first vote on a snap election date of 15 October, saying parliament should first approve a draft law aimed at preventing a no-deal Brexit, which has now been done.The party then also rejected a second vote, after internal wrangling between election-eager Labour leader Corbyn with some other top figures within the party who felt they should hold off for even longer.The reason for the rejection – no deal legislation aside – is that opposition MPs fear that Johnson won’t keep his promise to hold the election on 15 October and warn he may try to delay it until after the Brexit deadline on 31 October. That level of mistrust is a good example of the exact difficulties Johnson will have in getting any possible Brexit deal through the House of Commons.This may also not be a good time for an election for Labour, which is languishing in the opinion polls. A recent YouGov voting intention survey put the Conservatives down from 35% last week to 32% this week, and Labour from 25% to 23%.The Lib Dem vote is up from 16% last week to 19% now, and the Brexit Party experienced the same growth: up three points to 14%.If Labour remains opposed, Johnson could consider other options, such as calling a vote of no-confidence in his own government or introducing a different type of law for an election, both of which only require a simple majority.Johnson could also resign, which would be another way to trigger a general election. It’s been said that if this did happen, Corbyn could go to the queen to ask for permission to form a government with him as its ‘caretaker’ PM until a general election is held. As parliament is prorogued until 14 October, it will be the middle of November at the earliest before we have an election otherwise, as there must be at least 25 working days between when a general election is called and when it happens.No-deal BrexitThe UK is legally due to leave the European Union on 31 October whether it has agreed a Brexit deal with Brussels or not.Johnson insists he will not make any more requests to delay Brexit, as it’s been more than three years after British citizens voted to leave the bloc in June 2016. It’s also been reported that other EU nations would be reluctant to acquiesce to another extension request, after the first two bore no fruit (as of yet).Although Johnson says he wants a deal, he has stepped up preparations for a no-deal exit (which, he has repeatedly argued, will help them to get a deal).Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has argued that the UK would have to return to negotiations in the event of a no-deal Brexit, as some sort of relationship would have to be built between the EU and the UK eventually. So negotiations don’t necessarily end there.Johnson was accused of suspending the British parliament for five weeks in an attempt to force through a no-deal Brexit behind MPs’ backs. It’s possible that other efforts similar to this will be made by his government in order to make Brexit happen.A Brexit dealBoris Johnson has said repeatedly that he wants a Brexit deal. More specifically, he wants to renegotiate the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement agreed by his predecessor Theresa May, which was rejected three times by the UK parliament.Johnson says that his main objection to the Withdrawal plan is the backstop – a mechanism for keeping an open, friction-less border between Northern Ireland and Ireland in the even that no other solution to do this is found.The EU and Ireland have remained insistent that the backstop provision must stay, and that it’s up to London to come up with any credible alternative – although Johnson said he has an “abundance of proposals” during his Dublin visit, he didn’t share publicly.Johnson is pinning his hopes on a 17-18 October EU summit when he believes the threat of a no-deal Brexit will prompt the bloc to make compromises and allow a last-minute agreement. That being said, the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier has recently said there’s “no reason to be optimistic” that a Brexit deal will be done.Alternatively, some believe May’s divorce deal could be presented to MPs again. If the Withdrawal Agreement is put to MPs once more, it has a more likely chance of passing – with each vote on the deal, the majority it has been defeated by has decreased.In the event that the Withdrawal Agreement is passed by MPs, it’s possible that a referendum will be held to ask the people should the UK leave under the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement, or should it remain in the EU and revoke Article 50.Delay to BrexitThe Hilary Benn bill, which is now law, instructs the government to seek to push back the Brexit deadline until 31 January 2020 at the earliest, if it has not reached an EU deal by 19 October – which is after the EU summit.Ultimately, that decision rests with the 28 EU leaders. The Irish government has said that it would be in favour of another Brexit extension – anything to avoid a hard Northern Ireland border – but has raised concerns that others might not be willing to drag the Brexit timeline out further.The Benn law says that if a delay is agreed, then the UK government must regularly report to parliament on its progress in negotiations, and if there is still no deal by 31 January, it implies that Brexit would have to be delayed again.Johnson has warned that the legislation could have the effect of delaying Brexit “potentially for years”, and has said he’d rather be “dead in a ditch” than to ask the EU to grant the UK more time to pass a Brexit deal.Finally, if there is a Brexit extension, it’s possible that Brexit won’t happen at all – that’s a theory supported by many observers, including the man who first used the term Brexit. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has promised that if he wins power, he will hold a second referendum with an option to remain in the European Union.It’s both not really a Brexit scenario and unlikely to happen. 30,666 Views Share5 Tweet Email Short URL https://jrnl.ie/4808978 By Gráinne Ní Aodhacenter_img Image: PA Wire/PA Images Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Saturday 14 Sep 2019, 8:30 AM Here are 4 possible Brexit outcomes that we could get by 31 October Let’s spin the wheel of Brexit speculation.

Two felons appear in court in August pharmacy robbery

first_imgTwo convicted felons who allegedly robbed a Vancouver pharmacy at gunpoint in August made first appearances Tuesday in Clark County Superior Court.Keandre D. Brown, 19, and Keith B. Woody Jr., 24, both of Portland, face allegations of first-degree robbery and unlawful possession of a firearm. Woody is also accused in a June armed robbery at the Walgreens Pharmacy at 2903 N.E. Andresen Road.Police believe both incidents are part of a series of armed robberies at pharmacies in the Portland area, court records show.According to a probable cause affidavit, Vancouver police responded shortly before 3 p.m. Aug. 22 to an armed robbery at the Mill Plain Pharmacy, 614 Mill Plain Blvd. Witnesses reported that two men entered the pharmacy with handguns and demanded items, including oxycodone.An employee said one of the men ordered everyone to “get down,” climbed over a counter and asked something to effect of, “Where’s the oxy?” the affidavit states.After the robbery, an officer in the area saw two men run toward a gold-colored car, he said, but they were gone by the time he arrived, court records show. A witness was able to report a license plate number, and the registration came back to a vehicle sold in Oregon, according to court documents.The vehicle was later caught running a red light in Portland, which captured a photo of the occupants, one of which was later identified as Woody, the affidavit said.last_img read more

The World Soy Foundations Farmer Leader Feature Stan Born Illinois

first_imgThis week, the World Soy Foundation (WSF) is taking you to a town in Illinois called Dunlap for a Farmer Leader Feature on Illinois Soybean Association Director Stan Born. Stan, who grew up on a farm in Shelby County, Ill., was destined to be a fourth generation farmer. Before taking that role, Stan took what he calls a “brief 33-year sabbatical” to use his Chemical Engineering degree from the University of Illinois and become a leader and manager for the global business segment at Caterpillar, Inc. But he still stayed connected to the farm by helping in the field during peak seasons. During his “industry sabbatical,” Stan had the opportunity to travel to many areas of the world. To date, he’s had the privilege to visit 36 countries and he says his favorite is always “the next one!”In 2009, Stan decided to start farming as a part-time job and soon after retired from industry to pursue farming full-time.“While I remain a small operation, I am actively engaged in learning all the complexities that come with a farm business, and use this experience, the leadership experience gained from working for a Fortune 50 company, and my time to serve and advocate for the Ag community,” he said.Stan is a volunteer leader for a Christian mission organization working on food security issues in learning centers and transitional homes. Through one of these missions, Stan met a contact that invited him to participate in the Illinois Soybean Association’s Soy Ambassador Orientation program in 2013, which eventually led to his election in August 2014 to represent District 5 in Illinois. His work with the mission trips is also what attracted him to the World Soy Foundation.“Working with the ASA, WISHH and the WSF aligns with my mission projects in connecting agriculture to communities in need to help them migrate away from food aid and equip them to manage their own food security in a sustainable way,” Stan said.He has seen the clear problems of malnutrition, stunting and being underweight in children throughout the developing countries he has traveled to. A common theme among those children he saw was a lack of protein in their diets and how soy could be a great option to provide abundant, low-cost protein in those environments. When visiting learning centers that utilized soymilk to improve nutritional profiles, Stan saw the obvious benefits it was providing for the kids.“If these kids get proper nutrition, they will be better equipped to learn and create a better life for themselves and, if properly directed, to serve others,” Stan said.The WSF wants to thank Stan for his support and leadership in the soy family! It is not without the support of individuals like Stan that we could continue reducing malnutrition through the power of soy.

From our Fort to the Civil War front

Full speed ahead!”o Pickett’s Charge.o The death of Abraham Lincoln.They represent some Civil War milestones influenced by soldiers from Fort Vancouver.Some of them fought for the Union, some fought for the Confederacy. Sometimes they fought on opposing sides in the same battle. Former Fort Vancouver soldiers who became Union generals include George McClellan, Joseph Barnes and John Reynolds.Gabriel Rains, George Pickett and William Wing Loring resigned their commissions to join the Confederate army.George McClellanMcClellan graduated from West Point in 1846, second in his class. He was sent to Fort Vancouver in 1853 to find the best route for a railroad from the East. He left the military in 1857 to become a railroad executive, then went back into the Army during the Civil War.McClellan was named commander of the Union Army in 1861. Criticized for his caution and lack of leadership, McClellan was relieved of command in November 1862.The Democratic Party nominated McClellan to run for president in 1864, but Lincoln swept to a second term. (McClellan was the first candidate in what turned out to be three straight presidential elections featuring former Fort Vancouver soldiers, with Ulysses S. Grant winning in 1868 and 1872).After the war, McClellan had better electoral luck when he successfully ran for governor of New Jersey in 1877.McClellan left a lasting — but somewhat niche — military legacy, designing a saddle that still is being used.McClellan Road at Vancouver Barracks also bears his name.Gabriel RainsWhile serving against the Seminole Indians in Florida in 1840, Rains became noted for tinkering around with explosives and booby traps.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Resident Backs Bendel For Selectmen Praises His Efforts

first_imgDear Editor,My name is Bob Bryant. I have lived in Wilmington going on 29 years. I reside at 7 Dartmouth Ave aka Dartmouth River. I call it that because when it rains or we have heavy snow melt it runs down the street through my yard.I have complained to many in town management to no avail. I keep hearing that unaccepted streets can not be repaired with public dollars according to state laws. I have real issues with that. I believe any taxpayers who pay property taxes their/our properties should all be treated equally. We all pay the same tax rate.Well, for the first time in my 29 years here, I heard a Selectman — Selectman Greg Bendel — say we really need to do something about these streets. The fact that there are unaccepted streets in Wilmington and other towns in 2019, THAT is unacceptable.There are other towns around that are doing the same thing that Greg is suggesting Wilmington do — fix these streets!Our selectmen are supposed to represent the town’s residents — all of us or at least a good majority. They should not pick a small group and go with it which seems to happen a lot lately. The fact that Greg is trying to get things started is HUGE!Wilmington has 31 miles of unaccepted streets and, in my opinion, for Greg to bring this up is more representative of a larger group of residents who lose value of their homes and property due to water in their homes and conditions of their streets.I really hope Greg is re-elected to continue this project since he is the first in a long list of Selectmen to bring this to light!Thank you,Bob Bryant, Deb Bryant and Rob BryantLike Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Wood Bison Get Acquainted With Their New Habitat

first_imgThe first load of wood bison bulls has been successfully released into the wild in the Innoko River valley.Download Audio:Late last month, 12 bulls traveled by barge in special air-conditioned containers from Nenana to the unloading site, several miles upriver from the village of Shageluk, where a group of cows and calves has been roaming since April.Wood Bison Restoration Project Manager Tom Seaton with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game picked a release site where a group of bison cows had been browsing only a few days before. Workers cleared an alleyway through the riverside brush for the bison to move through, and then the bulls were free to disembark.What happened next, according to Seaton, was not at all similar to the first release of bison in April, when the cows and calves stampeded out of their holding pen.“They made about a 90-degree turn and walked off the barge onto the bank, and up that alleyway. They did it real nice and slow, they’d stop and look back every now and then. And we got to the very last one offloading from the barge, and for whatever reason he decided that he really didn’t want to come out. So we opened all of the doors and tried to give him a little stimulus to come out and he just said no. So we all went away and made everything as quiet as we could, and in about 20 minutes he just eased out on his own and did the same thing – walked down the alleyway and into the meadow.”Aerial surveillance shortly after the release showed that a small group of bulls immediately honed in on the scent of the cows, while another chose to swim across the Innoko River in the opposite direction from the cows. Since then, satellite tracking collars show that at least a few bulls have reunited with the cows and calves, and there is no evidence that any bulls have died in the transition to the wild.Another group of 18 bulls is scheduled to make a similar journey by barge beginning next week.A small group of wood bison remains in captivity at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center in Portage, where the now-wild wood bison were raised.Until this spring, wood bison had not roamed the wilds of Alaska for more than 100 years.last_img read more

Forget the US tourism invasion for now Trump ready to roll back

first_imgForget the U.S. (tourism) invasion for now: Trump ready to roll back Cuba policies Share With file from The Associated Press. MIAMI — Cuba-bound vacation clients worried that the island will soon be overrun by American tourists can put those fears to rest, for now at least, as President Trump gets ready to announce a revised Cuba policy restricting individual U.S. travel to Cuba today in Miami. U.S. airlines and cruise ships, however, will still be allowed to service the island.Speaking in Miami today, Trump is expected to stop short of a complete reversal of then-President Barack Obama’s more open policies with Cuba. It’s believed that Trump’s new policy is aimed at halting the flow of U.S. cash to the country’s military and security services while maintaining diplomatic relations.However it’s expected that most U.S. travellers to Cuba will again be required to visit the island as part of organized tour groups run by American companies. The rules also require a day-long schedule of activities designed to expose travellers to ordinary Cubans.Then-President Barack Obama eliminated the tour requirement, allowing tens of thousands of Americans to book solo trips and spend their money with individual bed-and-breakfast owners, restaurants and taxi drivers.More news:  Air Canada’s global sales update includes Managing Director, Canada & USA SalesIt’s expected that other aspects of Obama’s policies will stand. Trump is casting the updated policy as a fulfilment of a campaign promise to reverse Obama’s diplomatic re-engagement with the island after decades of estrangement.The U.S. Embassy in Havana, which reopened in August 2015, will remain as a full-fledged diplomatic outpost, though likely without an ambassador.More details about the changes are expected today. But none of the changes will become effective until the Treasury and Commerce departments issue new regulations, which could take months. That means U.S. travellers currently booked on flights to Cuba in the next few weeks or months could make the trip.Obama announced in December 2014 that he and Cuban leader Raul Castro were restoring diplomatic ties between their countries, arguing that a new approach was needed because the policy the U.S. had pursued for decades had failed to democratize the island.The U.S. severed ties with Cuba in 1961 after Fidel Castro’s revolution.More news:  Onex paying big to get WestJet and that will send airfares soaring, says CWTThe trade embargo remains in place under Trump. Only the U.S. Congress can lift it, and lawmakers, especially those of Cuban heritage, like Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., have shown no interest in doing so. Rubio opposed Obama’s re-engagement with Cuba. Posted by Tags: America, Cuba, Donald Trump, Group Travel Travelweek Group Friday, June 16, 2017 << Previous PostNext Post >>last_img read more

Shes her own woman not a Keylorette

first_img“Her name is Dinnia, not Keylar.” This was the phrase that filled social media networks in a loud, clear voice a few days ago, as private and public figures including former President Laura Chinchilla responded to the cover of a well-known sensationalist newspaper in Costa Rica. The newspaper’s cover referred to Dinnia Díaz – the goalkeeper of the Costa Rican Women’s National Soccer Team, whichjust qualified for the Women’s World Cup for the first time in history – as “Keylar.” (This allusion to renowned male Costa Rican keeper Keylor Navas is roughly akin to referring to a women’s basketball star as “Michelle Jordan.”)With the stroke of a key on a newsroom computer, Dinnia was removed from her identity, from her abilities, from her gender, from her achievements. The newspaper’s play on her name may have sounded funny to some, clever to others, and even completely harmless to most of the population. But it was not. The cover and the title were sexist, and there is no other word for it. A male player would never be compared to a female player in such a way. And if the sexist allusion was unintentional, that doesn’t take the issue off the table. Actually, it sets up the scenario for this month’s column: veiled discrimination.In Costa Rica we are used to providing and accepting, without hesitation, comments and jokes that are sexist, homophobic, racist and generally discriminatory. Fortunately, things are changing, as showed by the reaction on social media to the “Keylar” fiasco; but this is happening at a very slow pace. It’s promising that the National Soccer Federation (Fedefutbol) reacted to the episode by supporting Dinnia’s epic performance and rejecting the sexist allusion, since fighting discrimination requires official efforts, including government policies to fight every type of discrimination. Above all, it requires efforts from sports associations, companies, civic groups, political parties, religious congregations, universities and citizens in everyday life. To build a free and democratic society where everyone can have a voice, and not only a vote, entails an ongoing political exercise of unveiling and condemning discriminatory comments and actions at all levels. This, of course, is not easy, since discrimination has been with us for centuries.Our history, culture and traditions are filled with marvelous practices and values of which we should feel proud. However, we should also be aware that many of our institutions and social conventions have a non-inclusive historical background, not just in Costa Rica but around the world. On a personal note, I was surprised a few years ago when I first came to study in the United Kingdom, and specifically a year ago when I came to Oxford, to discover how accustomed I was to listening to discriminatory comments and letting them pass. I admired, and began to emulate, the way that many of my fellow students (not all of them, unfortunately) had internalized an automatic, vocal reaction against sexist, homophobic or racist comments and jokes. In most cases, the person who made the comment or joke recognized it and proceeded to apologize. Although universities are not perfect, one can sense in academic settings a growing culture against discrimination. I now feel a part of that culture, and empowered to speak out against discriminatory comments and actions at a dinner table, over coffee, in a sports match or simply in a class. Once you start living like that, it’s hard to go back.That is the goal that our elected officials and other social leaders should keep in mind: to make every person feel supported and empowered to confront discriminatory acts and people. The opposite attitude is exactly what can bring us down as a free and tolerant society. Costa Rica is a country in which people who discriminate put themselves in a position of power while the rest remain silent, powerless and frightened. Let’s think for example of our children in elementary school, our teenagers in high school, of men and women in their jobs and their families. How often has each of us been exposed to comments that attack our dignity, our essence, our very nature? How often have we have remained silent?This has to change. People who discriminate should be exposed and censured, as in the case of “Keylar.” Those who oppress and discriminate with horrible words should be fought with strong words in favor of tolerance and respect. Just as a small exercise, take five minutes and think about how many discriminatory words and jokes you say daily. Be conscious about them next time you talk to your family and friends. I understand that to have different opinions is also part of living in a free and democratic society; therefore, I am not trying to convert anyone here to a particular ideology. I am also aware of the existent debates on freedom of expression and discrimination. My intention here is simpler: to encourage people who are against discrimination to be outspoken about it.Whether using social media or simply at a party with friends, in a meeting or in a class, we should be loud and clear against discrimination. We may sound like outsiders at the beginning, accused of being uptight or humorless, but we will be surprised later on by how many people are on our side. Laws, state policies, and institutions all matter, but they always lag behind social change. We need to start by changing ourselves.Our National Women’s Soccer Team showed the country that women and men have the same abilities and capabilities to succeed in sports, just as other women have demonstrated this in the media, in government, in the arts, and in the world of business. So, let’s say it again loud and clear: to use the allusion to “Keylar” was sexist and wrong. We have an amazing female keeper on our national soccer team, and her name is Dinnia. Yes, Dinnia.Tomás Quesada-Alpízar is pursuing his doctoral degree in politics at the University of Oxford.

Hilton Sydney collects a host of awards at the HM Awards

first_imgHilton Sydney has won the coveted awards for ‘Australian General Manager’ (Paul Hutton), ‘Hotel Bar of the Year’ (Zeta Bar), Hotel Engineer (Craig Cavers) and Hotel Brand at the ninth annual HM Awards for Hotel & Accommodation Excellence.Regarded as the leading awards in the industry, the HM Awards recognise excellence in people and departments, properties and chains in 48 categories across properties in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.

Delta considering Virgin Atlantic stake

first_imgDelta Airlines is supposedly in talks with Singapore Airlines to purchase its 49 percent stake in Virgin Atlantic, in order to gain more access into London.Although still in early stages, the airline is said to have approached Singapore Airlines for the purchase, but was cautioned it might not approach Sir Richard Branson, who own 51 percent stake in the carrier, for control of the airline, The Guardian reported.Branson is reportedly keen to have Virgin join the three big airline alliances to keep it competitive in the market, however, any offer to the entrepreneur would require Delta to team up with its European partner, Air France-KLM, to meet EU ruling that any operator within Europe must be controlled by a European business.  “We realised for the long-term stability of Virgin Atlantic we needed to look at an alliance partner, and whether it is purely an alliance or more than an alliance we’re completely undecided,” he said in 2011.  “Most of the people we talked to are keen to have Virgin as part of their alliance. “My preference would be to keep control of the airline.”Delta Airlines is yet to comment.

Dbacks president Derrick Hall Franchise still f

first_img D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt challenged the play, and after alengthy view it was reversed. The touchdown did not count, but theCardinals took over on the Browns’ 5-yard line. Three plays later, JayFeely booted the tying field goal from 33 yards away.“Yes, it was a big point of emphasis that we try and get a turnover,”Whisenhunt said. “Adrian [Wilson] was close on a couple of balls today.So was Kerry [Rhodes], but it’s nice to actually get one and where we gotthat was critical. I mean it was huge for us in that game.”The Cardinals came into the game near the bottom of the league intakeaways with only 6 fumble recoveries and 9 interceptions. Today’slone turnover was certainly the biggest of the season.“The second sack I got was a game I ran with [Darnell] Dockett,”Schofield said. “He did a really good job of pinning the guy in so I wasable to come in pretty clean and get the sack.”After describing that play to the media, Dockett had a little fun with hisyounger teammate. “That’s right, you tell them your stepdaddy helpedyou,” he yelled out across the crowded locker room. GLENDALE, AZ — For as well as the Arizona Cardinals’ defense has beenplaying as of late, there’s one area where they’ve been deficient —forcing turnovers.Arizona opponents had run 227 straight plays without turning the ballover, a streak that dated back to the 3rd quarter of the Cardinals’ 23-20win over the Rams on November 27th.But that streak came to an end on Sunday, when linebacker O’BrienSchofield sacked Seneca Wallace inside his own 5-yard line, forcing anawkward looking fumble. Calais Campbell scooped it up and saunteredinto the end zone, but the officials on the play ruled that Wallace wasdown. Schofield said he had no idea that the second sack led to a game-changing turnover for the defense.“I saw him go down, but I didn’t see the ball come out, so I just thoughtit was a regular sack and he was down.” Top Stories Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation Comments   Share   last_img read more

New measures to deal with spike in migrant arrivals Updated

first_imgThe government decided on Wednesday to step up measures in a bid to tackle the increased inflow of migrants and refugees, mostly from war-torn Syria, including readmission agreements with neighbouring countries and increased surveillance of the buffer zone.The matter was discussed during a meeting between the ministers of interior, justice, foreign affairs and labour.The frequency of irregular migrant arrivals from Syria has seen a significant spike in recent days with over 100 people coming to the Republic either by boat or through the buffer zone from northern Cyprus. Cyprus is already dealing with around 15,000 who have either been given asylum or have applied for it, mostly from Syria.Speaking after the meeting, Interior Minister Constantinos Petrides said Foreign Minister Nicos Christodoulides will be speaking to the EU’s High Representative for foreign affairs and security policy, Federica Mogherini, and Dimitris Avramopoulos, EU Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship.“There will be a round of meetings with our European counterparts, especially from Mediterranean countries, which face the same problem, so as to better coordinate actions at a European level,” the minister said.Petrides said Cyprus will seek to forge a readmission agreement with neighbouring Lebanon, from where several boats carrying migrants have sailed, but also to prevent further inflows.Lebanon is receiving assistance from the EU concerning the refugee issue.The ministers also decided to bolster surveillance of certain “blind spots” along the buffer zone from where migrants cross from the north.“There will be use of technology, like cameras, but also frequent sea patrols,” the minister said.Sources told the Cyprus Mail last week however that there was little the authorities could do about arrivals through the buffer zone as anyone who seeks asylum cannot be turned back.The Zenon crisis centre was tasked to coordinate Cyprus’ response.Petrides said they also decided to fast-track blatantly unfounded asylum applications and draft a national list of safe third countries.The aim, he said, is to examine applications in one month.“It appears there is abuse from people who enter Cyprus legally, either as workers, students, or otherwise, and with the expiration of their residence permit they become asylum seekers,” he said.Also, the new year will see the operation of a special court of international protection that will only examine appeals against rejected asylum applications.Petrides said the government will also cut the time asylum seekers need to wait in order to be able to get a job from six months to one in a bid to reduce undeclared labour and system abuse.At the same time the sectors in which asylum seekers can be employed will be expanded.The minister stressed that European solidarity must turn into a clear policy framework that will include an automatic mandatory redistribution mechanism of eligible individuals across the entire EU territory.A new migration policy should not put disproportionate burden on frontline countries, small countries that cannot develop disproportionate structures to absorb the migrant waves, Petrides said.He reiterated that Cyprus is faced with one of the most serious problems in the EU as a proportion of its population and if the inflows continued they would no longer be manageable.According to Eurostat figures, Cyprus tops the list in asylum applications with over 5,000 per million population. It is followed by Greece and Italy.Applications continued to rise in the first eight months of 2018, 55 per cent against 2017, or 4,022 compared with 2,600. Last year also saw a 56 per cent rise year-on-year.Most of the asylum seekers are Syrians – 860 so far this year – followed by Indians, Pakistanis, Bangladesh, Egypt, and Iraq.So far this year, 1,520 entered the Republic through the north, 1,659 arrived through legal points of entry, and 72 came on boats, though the number has risen significantly in recent days. You May LikeManGoWild10 Important Stretching Exercises to Do Every Day to Keep HealthyManGoWildUndoLilAnswer7 Causes of Lung Cancer You Need to Be Aware Of!LilAnswerUndoamazing journey10 Best Places For Fall Travelamazing journeyUndo Cyprus’ Dothraki warriorUndoTwo of serial killer’s victims buried in PhilippinesUndoRouhani hopes British PM Johnson’s “familiarity” with Iran will help improve relationsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Stray missile from SyriaIsrael clash lands in northern Cyprus Update 7

first_imgAn errant missile struck northern Cyprus early on Monday, missing Nicosia and crashing on a mountainside in what authorities described as a spillover from strikes between Israel and Syria.The explosion occurred around 1am in the region of Vouno, some 20 kms northeast of Nicosia, with the impact starting a fire and heard for miles around.There were no casualties.The object is believed to be a stray Russian-made S-200 missile launched by the Syrian air defence against a massive Israeli airstrike overnight.Five parts have so far been found in three villages north of Nicosia after a deafening crash in the early hours on Monday morning.Turkish Cypriot ‘foreign minister’ Kudret Ozersay said that preliminary examinations show that the inscription on the missile is the same as that on Russian S-200 missiles that fell on Turkey’s Gaziantep in July 2018.“The first assessment is that a Russian-made missile, part of the air defence system, which was part of the air defence system that took place last night in the face of an air strike against Syria, completed its range and fell into our country after it missed,” Ozersay said in a social media post.He said the explosion was thought to have occurred before impact because there were no craters.“The pieces that fell to several different points prove that the missile exploded in the air before it crashed,” he said.The five parts of the missile have so far been found in the villages of Vouno, Dikomo and Kornokypos. One part was found in a yard of a house in Dikomo, where three homes were evacuated.Two parts were found in Kornokypos and two belonging to the main part of the missile were found in Vouno.Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci linked the incident to military operations in the Middle East but further investigations were underway by the military to establish what it was, he said.“It is evident it is not something stemming from our soil … It is one of the bad sides of the war in the region falling into our country,” he said. The incident was a wake-up call to islanders, said UniteCyprusNow, a pro-unity group.“The illusion that a permanent division on land … will protect us from crises has been shattered with the missile that landed on our head last night,” it said.Israeli warplanes fired missiles targeting Syrian military positions in Homs and the Damascus outskirts overnight in an attack that killed at least four civilians and wounded another 21.If verified, it would be the first time that Cyprus has been caught in the crosshairs of military operations in the Middle East despite its proximity to the region.Greek Cypriot military analyst Andreas Pentaras said the debris suggested it was a Russian-made S-200 missile.“An assessment from the pictures made public shows the base of its wings. It has Russian writing on it, so it suggests it is Russian made. Syria uses Russian-made missiles, so a not-so-safe assessment would be it was … an S-200 (missile),” Pentaras, a retired army general, told Sigma TV in Cyprus.Jamming technology could have diverted the missile, he said.One of five pieces of missile that have been retrievedThe foreign ministry said definitive conclusions could not be drawn at present.“Cypriot authorities are in touch with the authorities of neighbouring and other friendly countries with the aim of collecting further leads and information.”Sources said the government was in touch with Israel, the UK, the USA, and Russia in a bid to clarify the circumstances of the incident. It is understood that Russian officials have visited the crash site.Cypriot authorities are treating the incident as isolated and accidental.Government sources said the island’s flight information region had not been used by Israel during the attacks. Israeli aircraft taking part were tracked by radar, which however cannot trace an object with the size and speed of the missile. It is estimated that the missile reached Cyprus in under two minutes from the time it was launched.The National Guard’s surface to air missile systems, Tor-M1 and Buk, can track and intercept missiles but they are not deployed during peacetime.Turkey dispatched a team of experts to the area to determine whether there was any danger from toxic materials.The experts said they did not find anything that could be dangerous for human health.Residents told Cypriot media they saw a light in the sky then three loud explosions were heard for miles around.Rachael Gillett, a Nicosia resident who lives near the green line in the old city about 12 miles away, heard the blast.“I was on the phone to my brother in New Zealand when I suddenly heard — and felt — this big boom and the windows rattling,” she told the Cyprus Mail. “I rushed out of the house but all then fell quiet. My only thought was an earthquake, but there was nothing else. I couldn’t believe it when I woke up this morning and discovered what I had really heard.”The United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (Unficyp) said on Monday it was in contact with the Turkish Cypriot side regarding the explosion but urged all not to jump to conclusions before an investigation takes place.Unficyp spokesperson Aleem Siddique told the Cyprus News Agency that they are in contact with the Turkish Cypriot side regarding the “security incident”.“An investigation by the Turkish Cypriot side is currently underway and it is important that this be allowed to proceed before jumping to any conclusions,” Siddique added.The scene immediately after the crash (Politis)The government meanwhile offered to provide Turkish Cypriot authorities with any assistance, technical or otherwise, regarding the object that crashed in the north of the island, the director of the president’s media office Victoras Papadopoulos said.“Assistance has been offered by the Republic of Cyprus to the Turkish Cypriots,” Papadopoulos told reporters.The offer was relayed by foreign minister Nikos Christodoulides via the United Nations Secretary-General’s Special Representative in Cyprus Elizabeth Spehar.Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci thanked the government for its offer, but politely declined.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoSmart Tips DailySeniors With No Life Insurance May Get A $250,000 Policy If They Do ThisSmart Tips DailyUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
