'I make no apology for standing by Priti Patel, says PM

Boris Johnson has defended Priti Patel against bullying claims, saying she is "getting on with delivering the people's priorities".

During Prime Minister's Questions, Sir Keir Starmer questioned the decision for the Home Secretary to stay in her post following a report into her conduct which found she had shouted and sworn at staff.

He said: "What message does the Prime Minister think it sends that the independent advisor on standards has resigned but the Home Secretary is still in post?".

Mr Johnson replied: "the Home Secretary has apologised for any way in which her conduct fell short - and frankly I make no apology for sticking up, for standing by a Home Secretary who, as I've said just now, is getting on with delivering the people's priorities".

Nissan Commits to UK's Sunderland Plant After Brexit Deal

Japanese car maker Nissan has confirmed it will maintain its operation in Britain, as a result of the post-Brexit trade deal between the UK and the EU. The future of the company’s plant in Sunderland was thrown into doubt following the UK’s vote to leave the European Union in June 2016. The car maker employs around 6,000 people at its plant in the northeast of England. Nissan also said it will move production of the batteries used in its Leaf electric cars to the UK, a move that is likely to create more jobs on Wearside. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson greeted the news as a “great vote of confidence”. Report by Avagninag.
