U.K. Labour Plans to Nationalize BT's Broadband Unit
(Bloomberg) -- Sign up to our Brexit Bulletin, follow us @Brexit and subscribe to our podcast.Britain's Labour party pledged to offer all consumers free fiber broadband within a decade by nationalizing phone carrier BT Group Plc's Openreach unit at a cost of 20 billion pounds ($26 billion).BT shareholders would get newly-issued government bonds in return for their shares, Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer John McDonnell told BBC Radio Four on Friday. Shares of BT fell as much as 3.7%.It's the biggest new pledge of the election campaign from Labour, which already has plans to nationalize the postal service, the railways and water and energy utilities. The broadband effort would be financed in part with taxes on multinational companies such as Amazon.com Inc., Facebook Inc. and Alphabet Inc.'s Google. While the proposals may win over some voters, Labour may not be in a position to implement them. It has an average of 29% support in recent polls, trailing the Conservatives at 40%."A Labour government will make broadband free for everybody," party leader Jeremy Corbyn said at a campaign event at Lancaster University. "This is core infrastructure for the 21st century. It's too important to be left to the corporations."McDonnell said the new broadband pledge would be funded by asking "tech giants like Google and Facebook to pay a bit more" in proportion to their activities in the U.K. "So if a multinational has 10% of its sales, workforce, and operations in the U.K., they're asked to pay tax on 10% of their global profits," McDonnell s

UPDATE 1-Khamenei: Iran not calling for elimination of Jews, wants non-sectarian Israel
Iran is not calling for the elimination of the Jewish people, but believes people of all religions should decide Israel's future, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Friday. Since its Islamic Revolution in 1979, Iran has refused to recognise Israel and has backed militant Palestinian groups. Israel has long accused Iran of seeking its destruction and regards Tehran as its main enemy in the Middle East.

Elizabeth Warren's Number-Crunchers Out of Sync With Her on Some Big Plans
(Bloomberg) -- Explore what's moving the global economy in the new season of the Stephanomics podcast. Subscribe via Apple Podcast, Spotify or Pocket Cast.Elizabeth Warren is careful to cite economic experts to back up the costs of her multi-trillion-dollar policy plans. But even those experts disagree among themselves about how or whether those plans will work.University of California Berkeley economists Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zucman advised Warren on her wealth tax and say she could raise $2.75 trillion over a decade by imposing a 2% tax on wealth worth $50 million or more, going up to 3% for wealth of more than $1 billion.But Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody's Analytics who Warren's campaign asked to review her separate Medicare-for-All funding plan, which includes an additional 3% tax on wealth over $1 billion among other levies, is skeptical it would bring in that much money.On health care, Zandi has projected that Warren could raise the $20.5 trillion she estimates it will cost to give everyone free health-care without any new middle-class taxes, even though he disagrees with her vision. Saez and Zucman support her policy in general but their funding approach does raise taxes on the middle class.The disagreements among those who helped shape and gauge her policies highlight the challenges for Warren as she tries to convince voters that she can generate enough revenue to provide free health care, free public college, universal child care, forgive a portion of student loans

Netflix Plans to Amend Holocaust Film After Poland Complains
(Bloomberg) -- Netflix Inc. agreed to amend its documentary series "The Devil Next Door" after Poland's prime minster complained that it falsely suggested that his nation's government ran Nazi death camps during World War II.The company said in a statement that plans to add text to "The Devil Next Door" episodes to "avoid any misunderstanding," after Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said a map used in the series should make it clear that camps currently located within the nation's borders were operated by the Nazis in "German-occupied Poland."In an official letter to Netflix Chief Executive Officer Reed Hastings earlier this week, Morawiecki called out the streaming giant for making "a terrible mistake" in the five-part series. The show focuses on John Demjanjuk, a retired Ford Motor Co. auto mechanic who was stripped of his U.S. citizenship and convicted by a German criminal court for aiding in the murder of Jews during the Holocaust.The series showed a map of death camps that said they were located in Poland, using the country's current borders, which were set after World War II.The Polish government has repeatedly pushed for commentary on the death camps to label them as being operated by the Nazis in "German-occupied Poland," because the eastern European nation had no government of its own on its home soil after the invasion of Adolf Hitler's forces."Not only is the map incorrect, but it deceives viewers into believing that Poland was responsible for establishing and maintaining these camps," Morawiecki wrot

Federal Judge Rules U.S.-Born ‘ISIS Bride' Not an American Citizen, U.S. Not Required to Repatriate Her
A federal judge ruled Thursday that 25-year-old Hoda Muthana, who lived in Alabama but left the U.S. in 2014 to join ISIS, is not an American citizen and therefore the country is not required to repatriate her.Muthana is the daughter of Yemen's former ambassador to the United Nations, Ahmed Ali Muthana. Judge Reggie Walton ruled that because Hoda was born while Ahmed Ali still had diplomatic status, Hoda could not be considered a U.S. citizen. Ahmed Ali has since become a naturalized citizen.In addition, Walton ruled that Ahmed Ali cannot provide financial aid to his daughter, who escaped from ISIS to a Kurdish refugee camp in 2018. Hoda Muthana has a son, Adam, who was born in ISIS territory.U.S. law prevents the children of foreign diplomats from receiving American citizenship by birthright. Lawyers for Muthana's family had claimed Ahmed Ali's diplomatic status expired two months before Hoda's birth in New Jersey, a claim apparently rejected by Judge Walton.Muthana had previously said in an interview that she wished to return to the U.S."I want my son to be around my family, I want to go to school, I want to have a job and I want to have my own car," she said in an interview with NBC.The woman had previously called on jihadists in the U.S. to "go on drivebys, and spill all of their blood."
