Tuesday, 17th December 2019 Daily Roundup
Here’s a quick summary of what has happened around the world over the last 24 hours, brought to you exclusively by British Herald.
In news from Britain, Johnson’s Conservatives have decided to retain Nicky Morgan in the role of UK’s Digital, Culture, Media and Sports Minister. After Johnson’s victory in last week’s election, he intends to use a Brexit cliff-edge prospect at the end of 2020 so that the EU to gives him a comprehensive free trade deal in under than 11 months. Northern Ireland’s not had a devoted administration for over three years now and the UK’s imminent Brexit departure puts them in a sticky situation. Bank of England is in the news a great deal this week- the appointment of the new BoE governor has been in talks and all of the details on the most likely candidates are up on our website.
Today’s business news is quite a mixed bag. Starting off from electronics, the Samsung Electronics chairman has been subject to a jail sentence as he was involved in the sabotage of union activities. From the world of fashion, Rod Stewart who was a long-time director of Ted Baker has quit not long after the departure of the brand’s chairman and CEO. Walking from the runway right into the cinemas- North America’s British-owned Cineworld is soon to buy Cineplex for $1.65 billion. Flying off to the aviation sector, pilots from British Airways have voted to sign an agreement to finally settle the disputes over pay.
The highlight in world news today comes from the sphere of politics. Not too long after the Hong Kong university protests, India has followed suit, unfortunately. Police made their way into the library of the Jamia Millia University in the national capital and fired tear gas to worried students who hid in bathrooms and barricaded doors to protect themselves. This came shortly after a couple of thousands of students protested the newly passed Citizenship Law in the world’s largest democracy.
