UK, EU close to Brexit deal on financial services

'We're not going to wait for a ideal agreement.

The former Ulster Unionist Party leader, now a Conservative peer, said in a foreword to a think tank report that the achievements of the Good Friday Agreement were being put at risk.

The biggest obstacle to a Brexit deal has been Britain's wish to keep the border of its province of Northern Ireland with Ireland open - preserving frictionless trade and a 1998 peace deal that ended sectarian violence - while leaving the EU's single market and customs union to forge its own trade deals.

The Electoral Commission said it had "reasonable grounds to suspect that Mr. Banks was not the true source of the £8 million loans made to Better for the Country".

The implication is that a period of longer-term Dollar strength might be ending; this bodes for GBP/USD strength ahead, particularly in the event of a Brexit dealing being struck and a smooth exit being secured.

It offered a glimmer of hope for anxious businesses, as it said policymakers saw greater clarity on Brexit emerging "in the relatively near term".

This saw the Bank trim its forecast for growth overall in 2018, to 1.3% from 1.4% predicted in August, while it also nudged its 2019 outlook down to 1.7% from 1.8%.
