Many firms are expected to
relocate outside the UK if they lose their passporting rights after
Brexit. Passporting allows a financial company authorised in one EU
state to sell services and products in another.
“In the near-term it is critical
to ensure that regulatory and supervisory capacities are prepared for
the influx of financial firms that will move to continental Europe – and
Ireland – as a result of Brexit,” Ms Lagarde said.

Half of LGBT+ Londoners have been victim of a hate crime. We’ve come a long way, but there’s a way to go. #PrideMatters as much as it ever has done. (x)

The sky in #London has turned into a CRAZY(!) reddish brown colour. It feels incredibly weird…and getting more weird by the minute. So many people are looking at the sky and taking photos. #Ophelia #SaharanDust #FireParticles #RedSun pic.twitter.com/nMQ2e7MdTb

This is London.
Things American legislators are divided about: whether or not the Klan is bad.
Things British legislators are divided about: whether or not turning off a large clock to avoid deafening the workmen is a good thing.
So Big Ben is going to have its bongs turned off today, and a bunch of MPs are going to stand outside the Palace of Westminster with their heads bowed as a mark of respect.
Because apparently an inanimate object is worth their time, whereas the people involved in, for instance, the Grenfell fire aren’t. Given everything else that’s happening in the world at the moment, is a debate about a big clock really what we need?
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, hosts the LGBT Pride 2017 reception for staff and guests at City Hall, and …presumably declares himself a masc. Wouldn’t have thought it.
