News in brief

THERE WERE MIXED EMOTIONS ON EITHER SIDE OF THE ENGLISH CHANNEL TODAY as the EU agreed to offer another 'Brextension' on Britain's departure from the Union, with this one expected to last until 31 January. It is believed that the extension was offered with the intention to allow the UK to hold a general election, the result of which could significantly affect the outcome of Brexit.
