Despite the lift of seeing the prints, we were feeling a bit lacklustre, so headed over to Horningsea to the garden centre to have a light lunch in the cafe there. Using the facilities, I was struck by the number of moths that always seem to be attracted to the white walls of any such facility with an open window. Sadly, I was only able to photograph four properly. As ever, anyone coming in seeing me photographing the moths retained the typical British nonchalance at encountering my activity.
Brexit news today is Prime Minister Theresa May's clarification of the offer to EU residents to right of 'Settled status' in the UK post Brexit. No EU national currently living in the UK would have to leave at the point of Brexit. People will be treated the same irrespective of their nationality. Settled status will be available for those who have lived in the UK for five years, though they will have to apply for it and some form of ID documents (which may be virtual) will be required. Apparently this would be made a simple as possible, avoiding the 85 five page document currently needed. The application procedure will be launched before Brexit - possibly in summer of 2018. However, EU citizens in the UK are still not sure what the offer means and the EU negotiators have said that they do not think it has gone far enough. Labour and London's Mayor Sadiq Khan also feel it is not up to the mark.
The Prime Minister has finally bought the DUP into coalition, apologies, working together, with a £1bn bung. The other devolved nations in the UK are naturally outraged/annnoyed.
President Trump has something to celebrate. The Supreme Court has given partial permission to the implementation of his travel ban - until they come to a final decision in the Autumn. It prevents persons from several primarily Muslim countries coming to the UK with the exception of "foreign nationals who have a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States". Though it is not clear who decides whether the incomers have a bona-fide relationship on arrival.
