Labour vows to cap credit card interest to fight debt crisis

Jack themed Visa credit card is seen amongst British currency in this

At a fringe event at the party's conference in Brighton, Mr McDonnell described the work being done to allow Labour to "hit the deck running" should they win power.

Party members backed a move to toughen Labour's regulations on "incidents involving racism, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia or otherwise racist language, sentiments, stereotypes or actions" in a conference vote on Tuesday.

Speaking in Brighton, McDonnell will say that those in debt should not have to pay back more than double of what they borrowed. A zero tolerance approach to anti-Semitism should mean just that.

A "bellicose" tweet from US President Donald Trump constitutes a "declaration of war" against North Korea, the regime's foreign minister said yesterday as he threatened to shoot American military aircraft out of worldwide skies, reports The Times.

She added: "Any suggestion of kicking people out of any political party on the grounds of race or religion should be condemned".

Asked about the threats made to Ms Kuenssberg, Mr Corbyn said: 'I don't wish anyone to have to be accompanied by a bodyguard anywhere in our society and certainly not in our conference.

The prospect of the flight of capital from a Labour-run United Kingdom raised eyebrows, but Mr Corbyn insisted that the shadow chancellor's comments showed that Labour was a serious opposition responsible about preparing for the possible challenges of government.

He went on: "He has an opportunity in front of him this morning with this constitutional amendment. There should be no limits on the discussion".

Erdogan defends missile deal with Russian Federation
Citing Recep Tayyip Erdo─čan , TASS and Hurriyet report that a deposit in the $2,5bn deal has already been paid. "They have gone insane because we made a deal for S-400s".

"While we can agree we want a productive and innovative economy, and better infrastructure, the role of government is to get the fundamentals of the business environment right - not to direct every aspect of economic life in the UK".

He told followers of Momentum, a hard-left activist group that he "doesn't think" there will be a slump in the currency, but "you never know, so we've got to scenario-plan for that".

A former Labour minister who oversaw an explosion in controversial PFI contracts has said much of their use was a "major mistake" and they are "crucifying" the health system.

"You've got to sit down and talk to business because frankly they're the people on the ground who understand what is going to happen day-to-day in their operations".

Mr Ashworth told LBC radio: "I don't know if Wes would consider me to be at the top of the party or not, maybe I'm middling, but I can reassure Wes that with me, I'm not burying my head in the sand".

However, veteran SNP MP Pete Wishart has called on his party to do more to inspire Yes voters, claiming that the loss of 21 MPs at the last election was in part because the campaign failed to offer anything to pro-independence supporters, says The National.

"All groupings in the party should treat one another with respect".
