Boris Johnson has signalled his perseverance to face down Brussels in 2020’s crunch article-Brexit talks

Boris Johnson has signalled his resolve to encounter down Brussels in 2020’s crunch put up-Brexit talks by location up a new Downing Street device to spearhead negotiations.

The institution of Taskforce Europe is at the leading of the ‘to do’ checklist becoming drafted by Mr Johnson from the beach locations of Mustique exactly where he is expending the New Yr as he prepares for Brexit up coming month and – he has promised – a trade deal with the EU by December.

Also large on Mr Johnson’s checklist are a Budget which could lead to a hike in Cash Gains Tax, a radical reorganisation of Whitehall departments and a mass Cabinet cull expected to lead to Michael Gove currently being supplied all round charge of world trade talks.

The new taskforce, which will be headed by the Key Minister’s chief Brexit negotiator David Frost and is supposed to be operational by Brexit Day on January 31, comes as new EU Fee president Ursula von der Leyen questioned Mr Johnson’s timeframe for putting a deal by the finish of up coming year.

Ms von der Leyen set the fractious tone for the coming months by indicating this weekend that she was ‘very worried’ by Mr Johnson’s timeframe for trade talks and instructed that the Brexit ‘transition’ time period – which would see Britain locked inside the one industry and customs union – could be extended right until 2023.

‘We should really severely check with ourselves if all these negotiations are doable in these kinds of a shorter time,’ she said. ‘I assume it would be affordable to choose stock mid-year and, if vital, agree on an extension.’

A Government source claimed Mr Frost’s device, which will be based mostly in No 10, would be concentrated on hitting Mr Johnson’s conclusion-of- year deadline.

Also high on Mr Johnson's list are a Budget which could lead to a hike in Capital Gains Tax and a mass Cabinet cull expected to lead to Michael Gove (pictured) being given overall charge of global trade talks

Also significant on Mr Johnson’s listing are a Finances which could lead to a hike in Money Gains Tax and a mass Cupboard cull envisioned to lead to Michael Gove (pictured) staying given in general demand of world trade talks

‘In 2020, we will go forward to build a foreseeable future relationship and cost-free trade arrangement with the EU,’ the resource explained.

‘Following the Election, the Federal government has a distinct and renewed mandate to realize this. We want our new relationship to be based on an formidable free trade settlement and a near friendship among sovereign equals.’

And Govt resources put Ms von der Leyen’s reviews down to ‘tactics and bluster’, suggesting that any ‘genuinely held fears about timing’ ought to have been aired by the EU when Mr Johnson solid his new Brussels deal in the autumn. 

But talking to the French newspaper Les Echos, the EU main also prompted alarm amongst Eurosceptic Tory MPs by indicating that the British isles will have to continue to be aligned with EU trade criteria as portion of the new offer.

She explained: ‘If we want to reward from the prosperity of the solitary market place, to entry it without the need of obstacles or customs responsibilities, we have to all accept its typical rules and values. Usually, the two parties should concur on the barriers to be set in area.’

Meanwhile, Ministers panic Mr Johnson could sack up to a 3rd of his Cupboard in his submit-Brexit ‘St Valentine’s Day Massacre’ reshuffle. 

Flamboyant Lawyer Standard Geoffrey Cox and Organization Secretary Andrea Leadsom are tipped for the chop, though Chief Secretary to the Treasury Rishi Sunak and Stability Minister Brandon Lewis are most likely to be part of Mr Gove on the advertising list.

As reported in final week’s Mail on Sunday, Mr Johnson’s influential adviser Dominic Cummings is powering strategies to strip handle of prisons, probation and sentencing from the Justice Office, handing it instead to Dwelling Secretary Priti Patel – and at the very same time eradicating immigration from the Residence Business and placing it in a stand-by yourself section.

This newspaper has also figured out that Mr Cummings is learning designs to redefine what Britain’s large £14 billion overseas aid price range can be used on. 

Underneath the UK’s lawfully binding dedication to devote .7 for each cent of the nation’s GDP to global charity, that shelling out is at present certain by stringent Abroad Growth Help definitions.

It is comprehended that a ‘new British typical of assist spending’ has been underneath thought that could see the spending plan shared additional greatly across Whitehall, including with the Ministry of Defence.

These a shift could even see some help shelling out rely toward Britain’s Nato commitment to dedicate two for every cent of GDP to defence.

A person Cupboard resource reported: ‘It’s our funds and it is up to us how we expend it.’

International assist and the role of DFID (the Department for Global Improvement) are established to be key sections of a assessment into Britain’s standing in the globe led by Professor John Bew.

Nonetheless, Downing Avenue has been warned that the full abolition of Dfid would spark a major backlash from officials and the charity sector.

Awareness is also turning to March’s Finances, with Treasury insiders warning that a slew of Election pledges manufactured by the Tories will have to be funded by tax modifications. However, the Tory manifesto prohibits rises in revenue tax, Nationwide Insurance policy and VAT.

Rather, is recognized a hike in Money Gains Tax has been mooted by Treasury officials. At the moment, the tax on the revenue from the sale of 2nd houses is set at 28 for each cent, with tax on the earnings on the sale of other funds assets set at 20 per cent.

The Mail on Sunday also understands that Entrepreneurs’ Reduction – which sees organization creators shell out only ten for each cent tax when they market their business – could be scrapped.

Last evening, a Treasury official dismissed the statements as speculation and warned that no last choices on the Price range had been designed.

Inside the main house is a formal dining room, paneled office with fireplace, large two-story living room opening to the chef’s kitchen with pizza oven, game room with wet bar, media room and wine tasting room, according to the Sotheby’s listing. 

A friend of a previous resident, 41-year-old Hsin Pai, told DailyMail.com that the property used to be owned by a German actress.

The property was then bought around 2010 by Bernadette Wolfswinkel, the ex-wife of disgraced Arizona property magnate Conley Wolfswinkel who was convicted of bank fraud and was accused of owing US taxpayers $2 billion.

In 2012, Wolfswinkel, 70, listed the property for $14.1 million with a Sotheby’s realtor. Wolfswinkel’s friend, Pai, said she sold the mansion to a wealthy businessman around that time.

A neighbor also told DailyMail.com the house had been sold ‘a few years ago’, and an estate agent involved in the deal confirmed that the property had been sold to a US-based ‘billionaire’ who was neither American nor Canadian. 

The property is designed for its ownership to remain discreet. It is ultimately the property of a country club, and the purchaser bought shares in the country club to become its owner. 

The owners have held lavish fireworks displays from their property.

One neighbor, who asked to remain anonymous said: ‘We were all down there. They floated a barge out there and shot of a good $30-40,000 worth of fireworks.

‘We’re down there all the time,’ the neighbor added. ‘It’s very different looking right now. There’s a camera down there and temporary fencing.

‘It looks very cut off right now, it’s not usually like that. I knew they were here on Wednesday, and by Friday everybody around here knew.

‘By Christmas day it looked like Halloween. No-one’s ever on that street normally, but there were massive amounts of people just “walking their dogs”,’ the neighbor said.

‘It’s got a full on turret on one side. It’s pretty neat. I’m glad they’re staying there, because it’s an $18m (CAD) property, that’s what it was on sale for a few years ago, and it’s such a waste of the property for no one to be there.’

The property boasts a conservatory out on the four-acre grounds with two beach access points.

In 2012, then-owner Wolfswinkel told Ocean Home magazine that the property used to be the home of a German movie star, but that when she bought it she knocked it down and rebuilt it to her own specifications.

‘I can’t really explain it,’ Wolfswinkel told the agazine. ‘People may come for a few days or a week, but they don’t want to leave. And I feel it myself. It is very Zen, very comforting.’

Wolfswinkel set up a website in 2012 to advertise the property. The site is now defunct, but as recently as October 2016 it had pictures advertising the estate to rent with ‘full maid service, concierge and chef’.

A version of the site built in 2012 and archived in 2016 says the property is ‘presently being offered for sale, international executive retreat, vacation rental or event destination’.

Harry and Meghan’s presence in North Saanich was first revealed by local restaurateur Pierre Koffel and his wife Bev, who reportedly turned away the royal couple from their high-end restaurant because of their intense security requirements.

Police investigate hate crime after thugs scrawled anti-Semitic graffiti in London

Police investigate hate crime after thugs scrawled anti-Semitic graffiti in London


Police investigate Hanukkah hate crime after thugs scrawled anti-Semitic graffiti across a synagogue, shops and cafes in London’s Hampstead and Belsize Park

  • The Star of David and ‘9/11’ drawn on shops around Hampstead and Belsize Park
  • It is understood that the numbers refer to a conspiracy theory over 2001 attacks
  • The Metropolitan Police said it is ‘investigating a racially motivated hate crime’

Anti-Semitic graffiti found daubed across several shop fronts and a synagogue in north London has been condemned as ‘disgraceful’ and ‘senseless’.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn sent a message of ‘love and solidarity’ to Jewish communities, while shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer and Hampstead and Kilburn MP Tulip Siddiq also spoke out against the incident during the Jewish festival of Hanukkah.

The Jewish holy symbol alongside the numbers ‘9 11’ was spray-painted in red and purple on several premises in the Hampstead and Belsize Park area, including South Hampstead Synagogue, on Saturday night.

The graffiti references an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that Jews are responsible for the 9/11 terror attack, and was found less than two hours after five people were stabbed at a rabbi’s home in New York.

Police have said they are investigating the graffiti as a racially motivated hate crime after receiving reports of the vandalism at 11.30pm on Saturday.

The graffiti was seen being removed from shop windows on Sunday afternoon.

Mr Corbyn said on Twitter: ‘How terrible that Chanukah started with a message of hope and on this last day we face antisemitic graffiti in London and horrific stabbings at a party in New York.

‘We stand with all our communities facing hate. We send love and solidarity to Jewish communities around the world.’

Ms Siddiq condemned the vandalism as ‘unbelievable, senseless, disgusting anti-Semitism at the heart of our community’.

She added: ‘I am in touch with Camden Council and Borough Commander (Raj) Kohli regarding clean-up and attempting to find these criminals – we must all stay vigilant in order to continue the fight against this hatred.’

And Sir Keir said: ‘I agree with Tulip. This graffiti is disgusting and we must stand with the Jewish community against antisemitism.

‘If you have any information about who may be responsible for this crime, please contact the Camden police on 101.’ 

It is understood the numbers are in reference to a conspiracy theory that tries to link Jews to the September 11 attacks in New York in 2001

Camden Council leader Georgia Gould released a joint statement alongside Sir Keir and Ms Siddiq, which said they were ‘horrified’ by the vandalism.

The statement read: ‘Camden is and always will be no place for hate.

‘We stand together with all of our Jewish residents and our whole community in saying these cowardly pedlars of hate do not represent Camden and our values.

‘We are proud to have a strong, vibrant Jewish community as part of our beautiful borough. (…)

‘This is not an isolated incident and we must all confront the rising tide of hate crime and antisemitism in the UK.

‘Now is the moment to find the courage to confront hatred and prejudice wherever we see it.’

‘We have liaised with our partners in order to remove the graffiti and various inquiries are under way to find who is responsible.

‘Officers will be on patrol throughout the area in order to provide some reassurance to local communities. Please approach us if you have any questions or concerns.’

Police have asked anyone who saw anything suspicious on Saturday night to call them on 101.

The incident comes after five people were stabbed at a rabbi’s home north of New York on Saturday night.

A knifeman attacked a Hanukkah celebration in Monsey, before fleeing in a vehicle at around 10pm, police said.

The attack appeared to be the latest in a string targeting Jews in the region, including a massacre at a kosher grocery store in New Jersey earlier this month.

NASA's Spitzer telescope spots stunning image of 'cosmic snowflakes' in space

NASA’s Spitzer telescope spots stunning image of ‘cosmic snowflakes’ in space


Most of the globe may possibly not have professional a white Xmas this yr, but ‘cosmic snowflakes’ were being noticed in space.

NASA’s Spitzer Room Telescope captured a spectacular picture of new child stars, glimmering as pink and red specks lined in a sample that resembles a snowflake.

Nicknamed ‘Snowflake Cluster’, experts think these toddler buildings are just 100,000 several years outdated and have however to ‘crawl’ from where they have been birthed.

At the instant, these stars trace a straight line, but as they experienced, they will drift away and ‘the snowflake design and style will be no much more,’ NASA mentioned in a assertion.

The newborn stars have been spotted hiding at the rear of a thick dust in a section identified as ‘Christmas Tree Cluster’.

NASA’s Spitzer Area Telescope captured a spectacular graphic of newborn stars, glimmering as pink and pink specks lined in a pattern that resembles a snowflake. Nicknamed ‘Snowflake Cluster’, experts consider these toddler structures are just 100,000 several years old and have nevertheless to ‘crawl’ from the place they ended up birthed

The freshly uncovered infant stars look as pink and red specks toward the heart and appear to be to have formed in often spaced intervals together linear constructions in a configuration that resembles the spokes of a wheel or the sample of a snowflake.

‘Star-forming clouds like this 1 are dynamic and evolving buildings,’ stated NASA,

‘Since the stars trace the straight line pattern of spokes of a wheel, researchers feel that these are newborn stars, or ‘protostars’.’

A working day following snowflakes had been spotted in place, NASA’s telescope captured yet another incredible image of what appeared like flames ripping by way of the empty void. 

The picture highlights the Perseus Molecular Cloud, which is a massive selection of gas and dust that stretches over 500 mild-decades across.

The fiery glow is a end result of infrared radiation from heat dust and clusters of stars that ‘illuminate the bordering clouds like the Sunshine lighting up a cloudy sky at sunset.’

The Perseus Molecular Cloud is household to an abundance of young stars and is positioned on the edge of the Perseus Constellation.

It has in excess of 10,000 solar masses of fuel and dust masking an space of dimensions by two degrees.

The infrared mild emitted from the gas and stars is invisible to the human eye but, Spitzer is created to seize the illumination of heat objects. 

To the ideal of this massive cloud sits a vibrant team of youthful stars regarded as NGC 1333 that is 1,000 mild-decades from Earth.

This clump of begins have been noticed by astronomers considering the fact that the mid-1980s, but beneath it lies clusters that nevertheless continue being a secret.

‘They seem to comprise stellar infants, adolescents and grownups. This kind of a closely packed mixture of ages is extremely odd,’ according to Luisa Rebull, an astrophysicist at NASA’s Infrared Science

‘Archive at Caltech-IPAC who has examined NGC 1333 and some of the clusters under it.’

To the right of this massive cloud sits a bright group of young stars known as NGC 1333 that is 1,000 light-years from Earth. This clump of starts have been observed by astronomers since the mid-1980s, but underneath it lies clusters that still remain a mystery

To the suitable of this enormous cloud sits a shiny group of youthful stars recognised as NGC 1333 that is 1,000 light-weight-many years from Earth. This clump of begins have been noticed by astronomers considering that the mid-1980s, but beneath it lies clusters that continue to continue being a thriller

‘Although lots of stellar siblings may possibly kind with each other in restricted clusters, stars are normally transferring, and as they expand older they have a tendency to move farther and farther apart.’

Getting these types of a carefully packed mixture of clear ages would not in good shape with current strategies about how stars evolve.

‘This location is telling astronomers that there’s something we don’t understand about star development,’ said Rebull.

‘The puzzle offered by this area is one issue that retains astronomers coming back to it. ‘It’s a person of my preferred areas to review.’

Considering the fact that IRAS’s early observations, the area has come into clearer emphasis, a approach that is common in astronomy, claimed Rebull. 

New devices deliver extra sensitivity and new approaches, and the story becomes clearer with every single new technology of observatories. 

On Jan. 30, 2020, NASA will decommission the Spitzer Area Telescope, but its legacy has paved the way for upcoming observatories, such as the James Webb Place Telescope, which will also notice infrared mild.

The Spitzer-MIPS info applied for this image is at the infrared wavelength of 24 microns. 

Tiny gaps along the edges of this image not noticed by Spitzer have been loaded in employing 22-micron information from NASA’s Wide-Field Infrared Study Explorer (Intelligent).

WHAT IS THE SPRITZER Space TELESCOPE?

The Spitzer Room Telescope – formerly recognised as the Space Infrared Telescope Facility – is an infrared cousin of the Hubble Space Telescope.

It is made up of a space-borne, cryogenically cooled telescope with lightweight optics that deliver gentle to sophisticated, massive-format infrared detector arrays 

It is able of researching objects ranging from our photo voltaic technique to the distant reaches of the universe. 

Peering back again into the early universe, it seems at young galaxies and forming stars.

The Spitzer Space Telescope - formerly known as the Space Infrared Telescope Facility - is an infrared cousin of the Hubble Space Telescope (artist's impression). The band of light in this image is the glowing dust from the Milky Way seen at 100 microns

The Spitzer Place Telescope – previously identified as the Space Infrared Telescope Facility – is an infrared cousin of the Hubble Space Telescope (artist’s effect). The band of mild in this graphic is the glowing dust from the Milky Way noticed at 100 microns

It is also utilised to detect dust disks all around stars, deemed an important signpost of planetary development.

The mission is the fourth and final observatory below NASA’s Fantastic Observatories program.

This mission also incorporates the Hubble Room Telescope, Chandra X-Ray Observatory and Compton Gamma Ray Observatory.  

It was released into orbit all over the solar, trailing guiding Earth, drifting in a benign thermal natural environment.

By employing this orbit, the spacecraft is capable to undertake an ground breaking “heat-start” architecture, in which only the instrument payload is cooled at start. 

By employing distinctive cooling in deep space, Spitzer is equipped to have significantly considerably less liquid helium than any previous infrared mission, which significantly cuts down mission development prices.
