Shanker Singham quit a position on the “committee of experts” at Liam Fox’s Department for International Trade (DIT) after officials decided that there was a “potential conflict of interest”. He had been advising on trade policy while working four days a week at the Institute of Economic Affairs think tank but this month took a part-time role advising the PR firm Grayling.

Last week, the Department for International Trade press office & Shanker Singham both told me that there was no conflict between his role with a lobbying firm & his role as a government adviser.
This week, he’s quit as a government adviser.

I will lie down in front of those bulldozers,” Boris Johnson once said of Heathrow expansion. It turns out only the first three words applied.
So I applied for my bulldozer license in vain?

The idea is not a surprise but I'm slightly wary of it just because it keeps being repeated - any ideas?

Great you’re back Greg! I wouldn’t want any long term MP campaigners against #Heathrow expansion to miss their chance to represent their community. #commitment #bulldozer

Ukip has allowed a trio of social media activists linked to the alt-right to join the party.
The arrival of Paul Joseph Watson, Mark Meechan – better known to YouTube viewers as Count Dankula – and Carl Benjamin, who posts videos as Sargon of Akkad, will alarm some senior Ukip members already concerned at the struggling party’s direction under Gerard Batten.
Batten, who took control of the party in February on an initial one-year basis, has defined himself largely though anti-Islam rhetoric. He has also backed Tommy Robinson, the founder of the anti-Islam English Defence League (EDL) street movement, who was jailed in May for contempt of court.

BMW will shut UK sites if customs delays clog supply post-Brexit
If Mini and Rolls-Royce parts are caught up in delays, 8,000 jobs could be at at risk
BMW has said it will be forced to close its production sites in the UK, putting 8,000 jobs at risk, if components for Mini and Rolls-Royce cars are caught up in customs delays after Brexit.
In its starkest warning over Brexit yet, the customs manager of the German carmaker’s UK operations said its manufacturing set-up would not be able to cope with obstructions to its supply chain.
“We always said we can do our best and prepare everything, but if, at the end of the day the supply chain will have a stop at the border, then we cannot produce our products in the UK,” Stephan Freismuth told the Financial Times. (Guardian)

Was "Spiked" always as bad as it is now? Going back quite some years, I think I remember reading some fairly interesting things there. Of course, my memory isn't all that good . . .

EBA says banks cannot yet rely on transition period agreed in principle with Brussels.
Europe’s top banking regulator has warned the financial industry its preparations for Brexit are “inadequate” and urgently need pushing forward as Britain moves closer to leaving the EU. Sounding the alarm two years after the Brexit vote, the European Banking Authority told City banks they needed to “rapidly advance” their planning for a hard Brexit – potentially putting the Bank of England at odds with the EU’s top regulator.
Business leaders from the US, Canada, Japan and India have told the British government to solve the Brexit issue urgently or put more than £100bn worth of trade at risk.
