Tony Blair believes NI deal ‘still possible’ but warns over Brexit

Former PM Tony Blair has said he believes a solution to the current deadlock at Stormont is possible. Northern Ireland has been without an executive since January 2017, when the governing parties – the DUP and Sinn Féin – split in a bitter row. “I can’t believe it’s not possible to find a way round it,” Mr Blair said in an interview marking 20 years since the Good Friday agreement. “It’s very similar to the types of issues we used to deal with,” he said. “You’ve just got to keep working at them until you find a way through.”

 

Police cuts ‘likely contributed’ to violence rise, document says 

A fall in police numbers is likely to have contributed to a rise in serious violent crime, according to a leaked Home Office document seen by the BBC. Officials said a lack of resources and fewer charges may have “encouraged” offenders to commit crimes. It comes as new measures are to be set out by Home Secretary Amber Rudd to tackle violence in England and Wales. Ms Rudd said it is a “mistake” and “disservice” to communities and families to blame police numbers.

Growth fears beat Brexit as biggest anxiety for business

Brexit has dropped from the top of business leaders’ biggest fears for the first time since the referendum. Weak growth has displaced uncertainty about Britain’s future relationship with its largest trading partner as the main risk facing UK corporates, according to a quarterly survey of finance directors by the accountants Deloitte. Business confidence was boosted by the transition deal agreed last month that will give companies until the start of 2021 to prepare for life outside the EU. The deal will mean many businesses can operate as normal for 21 months beyond the formal Brexit date on March 29 next year.

 

Taxi drivers seek action to cut cost of insurance

Taxi drivers have called for new entrants to the motor insurance market to help reduce the cost of cover as new figures showed a significant increase in the number of hackney and taxi drivers refused insurance by providers. The number of taxi and hackney licence holders refused cover by insurers on the open market rose from zero in 2012 to 279 last year. The overall number of drivers refused cover rose from 178 to 1,423 over the same period. Both categories peaked in 2016 when 1,941 drivers were refused motor insurance, including 375 taxi and hackney drivers.
