  • UK could permanently remain in Single Market and Customs Union under Labour’s Brexit plans, Tom Watson admitsThe UK could permanently remain in the European Single Market and Customs Union under Labour’s Brexit plans, Tom Watson has admitted. Mr Watson confirmed Labour is positioning itself as the party of “soft Brexit” in comments which are likely to spark concerns of a betrayal of Leave voters. Sir Keir Starmer, the shadow Brexit secretary, recently set out Labour’s new blueprint for the UK’s…View On WordPress
  • UK seeks interim customs deal to avoid Brexit trade chaosThe British government is proposing an interim customs agreement with the European Union after Brexit to allow trade to continue as freely as possible once the UK leaves the EU. The Brexit Minister David Davis says that under the plan, existing customs arrangements would broadly stay in place during an interim period. The UK has said it will leave the EU’s Customs Union – its tariff-free trading…View On WordPress
  • David Davis refuses to rule out paying for access to customs union during Brexit transitionDavid Davis has refused to rule out payments to the EU for a temporary customs union arrangement after the UK leaves the bloc. The Brexit Secretary has announced that Britain will seek to retain a customs union with the EU for at least two years after Brexit to prevent border chaos.  He said the transitional period would last around 2 years, but failed to set out how much it could cost.  EU chief…View On WordPress

  • Brexit secretary David Davis (L) and European Union’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier have plenty more talking to do (REUTERS/Francois Lenoir)A group of pro-Europe MPs is planning to derail parts of Theresa May’s Brexit plan, it has been reported. The cross-party group believes it can steer the government away from a hard Brexit by targeting key areas of the negotiations. Specifically, reports the Financial Times, the group will be looking at areas such as the Open Skies aviation arrangements, the customs union and Euratom, the nuclear regulator.

However, political loyalties may hamper their efforts. As one Tory MP said: “There is a measure of co-operation but none of us want to help [shadow chancellor] John McDonnell or [Labour leader] Jeremy Corbyn.” However, a Labour MP was more optimistic, telling the FT: “There is a sweet spot where we all agree, Labour backbenchers, some Tories, and the Labour leadership, it’s not easy, but it’s not impossible.” The development comes as the UK sets out the “ambitious new customs arrangement” it wants to secure with the EU after Brexit – including a “temporary customs union”. MORE: Brexit tension brewing over Irish border plans The customs union is designed to offset potential border problems as the UK leaves the bloc. Ministers said the plans would mean the “freest and most frictionless possible trade” with the rest of Europe. But, crucially, the document published on Tuesday also makes clear that during this period, Britain would also expect to be able to negotiate its own international trade deals – something it cannot do as an EU customs union member. David Davis, the Brexit secretary, told BBC Radio 4’s Today show that he envisioned the interim customs system being “as close as we can to the current arrangements”, but with the UK able to negotiate and sign its own international trade deals. He did not rule out the UK paying to be part of the arrangement, but would not speculate further on any details. MORE: Brexit Secretary: EU negotiations ‘occasionally tense but amicable’ A European Commission spokesman said: “We will now study the UK position paper on customs carefully in the light of the European Council guidelines and the council’s negotiating directives.” Michel Barnier, the EU’s Brexit negotiator, along with a whole host of Eurocrats, has warned repeatedly that the UK will not be able to simply walk away from the EU and sign new trade deals without some pain. “As Michel Barnier has said on several occasions, ‘frictionless trade’ is not possible outside the single market and customs union,” added the EC spokesman.

How to Generalize the fact that the union is associative for family of sets to express the single union as a triple-union,n-nested unions? Given: our base case! : I know that we can describe the union of the indexed family of sets $S_i$ where $\exists$ i $\in$ I as the double union, i.e. we take the union twice as shown where we express one union as a double union defined as $\cup_{\lambda \in \delta} \cup_{i \in {I_\lambda}}S_i$. Generalizing the idea that the union is associative for indexed families of sets, I'm wondering how we can express the union is associative for indexed families of sets when we express a single union as $ 3$ associative unions, $ 4$ associative unions,... $ n$ associative unions where $n>=2$ by mathematical induction? pf outline: Base case is if there are two indexed families of sets, then we can show union is associative on these indexed families?? Inductive step: let $ n \in \mathbb{N}$ we'll assume for $2=<k<=n$ number of indexed families of sets the union is associative. now show $ P(k)$ true for $ n+1$ indexed families of sets Conclusion: the union is associative for $ n$ -indexed families of sets? I think a formal proof would be helpful using induction and I think it would be more helpful if we could see a trivial finite example where $S_i$ and all the other n-indexed families of sets were given, and what it would look like to trivially prove that some countable n-indexed families of sets where n is of cardinality aleph null is associative. Metaphorically : This feels like calculus where we express the triple integral as a double integral but I'm looking for a case where we can express the single integral as a double (it's been proven already ) integral, triple integral, quad-tuple integral,. The union is like an integral. If someone could tell me what the correct name for what we're doing above that'd be great. I have no idea what to call doing the text above besides as expressing a single union as a double union. Onto more criticism: pf: Why isn't the proof given above done by induction? It successfully shows that the union is associative for only two indexed families of sets. Is the proof above necessary and sufficient to show that union j indexed families of sets is associative or that we can express some single union of an indexed families of sets as a y-nested unions? 2<=j<=y j,y $\in$ $\mathbb{N}$

Why does the Brexit vote align well with biblical prophecy? It doesn't. [edit] I have been asked to expand on this short answer. The Bible is not an answer book for everything that happens to and in human societies or to individual human beings. It is the record of Israel's dealings with God and the witness of God's offer of salvation through Jesus Christ. Nothing that I am aware of in the Bible can be applied to the Brexit. Being pattern-seeking creatures, we naturally look to see if there is a pattern to things but sometimes things just happen.
