The Latest: Merkel says her 30-days remark not a deadline
German Chancellor Angela Merkel says a suggestion she made that a solution to the Brexit dispute be solved in 30 days shouldn't be interpreted as a strict deadline. Some commentators in Britain had interpreted her comment as a deadline to Johnson, who wants to take Britain out of the European Union by the end of October — whether a solution to the Irish border issue is agreed or not. French President Emmanuel Macron says the Irish backstop is "indispensable" in a Brexit deal.

Trump news - live: President threatens to release thousands of captured Isis fighters into Europe after extraordinary series of outrageous statements
Donald Trump joked about awarding himself the Medal of Honor and trailed the idea of dumping thousands of captured Isis fighters on Europe in an address to the American Veterans 75th National Convention in Kentucky on Wednesday evening.The speech followed a particularly wild day for the president in which he retweeted praise from an evangelical broadcaster likening the affection in which he is held by Israeli Jews to "the second coming of God", referred to himself as a "the chosen one" in discussion with reporters and labelled the prime minister of Denmark "nasty" over her refusal to consider selling Greenland to him.

Hong Kong university student leaders said Thursday they'll call for a boycott of the start of classes to pressure the government to respond to the protest movement gripping the city since June. Young people have been at the forefront of the Chinese city's protest movement, which was sparked by calls for the withdrawal of an unpopular extradition bill.

China State Media Says U.K. Consulate Worker Visited Prostitute
(Bloomberg) -- Want the lowdown on European markets? In your inbox before the open, every day. Sign up here.China detained a U.K. consulate staffer from Hong Kong for visiting a prostitute, a Chinese newspaper alleged, a new twist in a case that has raised concerns Beijing is trying to warn the British government against meddling in its former colony.Police in the border city of Shenzhen said Simon Cheng, 28, "violated the 66 article of China's law on administrative penalties for public security, which states that people who engage in prostitution or visit prostitutes shall be detained for no less than 10 days but no more than 15 days," the Communist Party's Global Times reported Thursday. Cheng's 15th day of detention is Friday.Cheng told the police not to notify his family about his detention, the newspaper said, adding that he faces a potential 5,000 yuan ($705) fine. It gave no evidence against Cheng. The UK consulate in Hong Kong did not answer a phone call seeking comment on the allegation. Cheng's girlfriend did not immediately respond to a question on the charge.Before the Global Times story was published, the consulate said it had raised the issue with authorities in China and Hong Kong and was in contact with Cheng's family and providing support.Allegations of visiting prostitutes have later proved false in other instances where Hong Kong residents have been detained in China. A Hong Kong lawmaker apologized after accusing bookseller and Communist Party critic Lee Bo of visiting prostitutes, the South Chi

Beijing hits back after Trudeau vows to stand up to China
Beijing on Thursday accused Ottawa of worsening bilateral relations after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau vowed to stand up to China amid deepening diplomatic and trade disputes. The two countries have been locked in a feud since last December, when Canada detained top Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou and -- in apparent retaliation -- China detained two Canadian nationals over espionage-linked accusations. On Wednesday, Trudeau pushed back against Beijing in a speech that promised to "always defend Canadians and Canadian interests" and to not "back down".

Dancing With The Stars host sounds pretty pissed about Sean Spicer dancing with the stars
Nostalgia is a funny thing. Because it tends to work only in relative values—i.e., "then" was better than "now," so "then" must automatically be good—it can do a lot of work to shave the more craptastic edges off of a person or a moment, even if they were, from an objective point of view, trash.
