VIDEO REVIEW | Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Crystal Palace

  VIDEO REVIEW | Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Crystal Palace In this week’s e-Crystal Palace Podcast, I review the game against Tottenham Hotspur by giving you my match review, player rankings as well as my Man of the Match. Regardless of another very good performance Palace fell to their ninth defeat in 11 Premier League games as they narrowly lost 1-0 to Spurs. Despite another brave, organised showing from Roy Hodgson’s side, a curling Son goal on the 64th minute ended the game in Spurs favour. Although Palace created many meaningful chances throughout an inspired Gazzaniga performance saw him make many saves to keep Spurs in the game; What is it about goalkeepers playing a blinder against Palace? Is Ruben Loftus-Cheek better in the middle than out wide? All this and more in this week’s e-Crystal Palace Podcast.

Amendments to the repeal bill going through Parliament will spell out that the UK ’s membership of the EU will end at 11pm GMT, midnight in Brussels, on March 29 2019. Brexit Secretary David Davis said the change will make the UK ’s departure date “ crystal clear ”.

The move comes as Mr Davis was set to meet the European Union's chief negotiator Michel Barnier in Brussels, where officials have been engaged in the latest round of Brexit talks.

The amendment enshrining Brexit day in law will be considered by MPs when the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill returns to the Commons next week.

Theresa May's fragile grip on power, relying on DUP votes for a Commons majority, means the Government is vulnerable to any Tory rebellion and Mr Davis indicated that he was talking a "pragmatic" approach to MPs' concerns.

Mr Davis said: "Our amendment makes it crystal clear that the UK is leaving the EU at 11pm on March 29 2019.

"We've listened to members of the public and Parliament and have made this change to remove any confusion or concern about what 'exit day' means.

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill get tough on U.S. gun laws

  Tim McGraw and Faith Hill get tough on U.S. gun laws Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are testing their conservative fan base by taking a stand against gun laws following a spate of recent shooting incidents in America. The 58 victims of the Route 91 Harvest Festival massacre last month (Oct17) were remembered at the Country Music Association Awards in Nashville, Tennessee on Wednesday night (08Nov17) as the couple, who performed during the ceremony, looked on and now Tim and Faith are making it clear they want new gun laws, so American civilians cannot buy military weapons. Their stance will upset some of their gun-toting fans, who insist it's their right to bear arms, but McGraw insists he's not calling for a total ban - and plans to keep hunting himself. "Look, I’m a bird hunter; I love to wing-shoot," he tells Billboard. "However, there is some common sense that’s necessary when it comes to gun control. "They (militant gun fans) want to make it about the Second Amendment every time it’s brought up. It’s not about the Second Amendment." Hill adds, “In reference to the (Route 91 festival) tragedy in Las Vegas, we knew a lot of people there. The doctors that (treated) the wounded, they saw wounds like you’d see in war. That’s not right. "Military weapons should not be in the hands of civilians. It’s everyone’s responsibility, including the government and the National Rifle Association, to tell the truth. We all want a safe country.

  Brexit will come to UK an hour early © PA Brexit will come to UK an hour early Ahead of the meeting in Brussels, Mr Barnier called on the UK to make clear whether it will stick with the "European model" on issues like food and environmental standards and financial regulation when it leaves the bloc.

Mr Barnier's comments came after US commerce secretary Wilbur Ross suggested the UK could get a better transatlantic trade deal if it ditched EU restrictions on American products like genetically modified crops and chlorine-washed chicken.

Ahead of a crunch leaders' summit in December, Mr Barnier said the moment was approaching for a "real clarification" of Britain's position on issues like citizens' rights, the Irish border and the UK's financial settlement.

Therefore, quite apart from the objective of the Great Repeal Bill to transpose existing EU law into UK law on Brexit Day (sections 1 and 2 of this note), a separate question As is clear from the above, the Great Repeal Bill alone cannot resolve the considerable uncertainty for businesses caused by Brexit .

Those talks could shape what the UK 's post- Brexit laws look like - but the repeal bill will need to be done and dusted by the day the UK leaves. Reality check: How much UK law comes from the EU? What's happening when? The bill was included in the Queen's Speech in June and is set to get its

If the 27 remaining EU members agree next month that sufficient progress has been made on these issues, they will give a green light for negotiations to move on to the questions of trade and transition to a new post-Brexit negotiation.

The Prime Minister will attempt to win support from European businesses for her goal of moving the negotiations on to trade talks.

She will meet leading business organisations on Monday to set out her vision of a "bold and deep economic partnership" between the UK and EU after Brexit.

The Brexit Secretary and Business Secretary Greg Clark will also attend the Downing Street event, which the CBI has helped to organise. 

Groups represented include the BDI and BDA from Germany, Medef from France and the EU-wide BusinessEurope.

Ministers hope that business groups can lobby their national governments to support a trade deal which will be in the interests of both sides in the negotiations.

In a sign of business unease about the impact of Brexit, motor manufacturers set out their concerns in evidence to a Commons select committee.

  UK set to make the day of Brexit 'crystal clear' in amendment to repeal Bill The date of Brexit will be written into law in an effort to placate MPs who are worried that the Government could attempt to delay the UK's break away from the European Union. Amendments to the repeal bill going through Parliament will spell out that the UK's membership of the EU will end at 11pm GMT, midnight in Brussels, on March 29 2019.Brexit Secretary David Davis said the change will make the UK's departure date "crystal clear".

He described how the Great Repeal Bill will end the supremacy of EU law in Britain after Brexit and also end the meddling of EU judges in UK affairs. This publication makes clear there will be a series of Bills to debate and vote on both before and after we leave."

In a written submission to the Business, Energy and the Industrial Strategy committee, Honda, which employs 4,000 people at its Swindon plant, said it had concerns about disruption to supply chains, regulatory divergence, restrictions on free movement of labour and the impact of tariffs.

"With 35% of exports from our Swindon factory exported to the EU, and 40% of the components used to build cars at Swindon imported from EU27 suppliers, frictionless, tariff-free access to the single market and customs union is vital to our competitiveness," the Japanese motor giant said.

Honda also warned that non-tariff barriers could potentially have a greater impact than import and export tariffs. 

Similar concerns were also raised by Ford and Vauxhall in their submissions.

Ford said any transitional deal should be a "standstill agreement" preserving current rules because "we do not believe that the new customs, border and documentation arrangements necessitated by the UK leaving the EU and customs union could be put in place by April 2019".
