  • Putin letter to Arab summit triggers strong Saudi attack

    By Yara Bayoumy and Mahmoud Mourad SHARM EL-SHEIKH, Egypt (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of hypocrisy on Sunday, telling an Arab summit that he should not express support for the Middle East while fuelling instability by supporting Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad. In a rare move, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi announced that a letter from Putin would be read out to the gathering in Egypt, where Arab leaders discussed an array of regional crises, including conflicts in Syria, Yemen and Libya. "We support the Arabs' aspirations for a prosperous future and for the resolution of all the problems the Arab world faces through peaceful means, without any external interference," Putin said in the letter.

  • Mercedes conducts review after mistakes at Malaysian GP

    It's rare to see a Formula One podium these days without a Mercedes driver standing on top, and it's even rarer to have the team conducting arguments in public over the strategic errors which led to the defeat by Ferrari. The team was chiefly undone on Sunday by the Malaysian heat which degraded its tires more quickly than those on the Ferrari cars. "It is going to make us work harder and concentrate even more," Wolff said.

  • Devo Max will leave country £40billion short

    The astonishing total is equivalent to around £8,000 for every man, woman and child north of the Border and comes over and above the existing UK National Debt, according to new figures released by HM Treasury. Last night, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon was accused of “flying in the face of economic reality” by pushing for so-called devo max. The debt bombshell comes as the SNP meet for a two-day pre-election rally in Glasgow, with party leaders set to reiterate their demand to keep all taxes raised in Scotland, including North Sea oil and gas revenues. The impartial Treasury analysis examines the SNP’s fiscal autonomy plans, including a geographical share of oil revenues, as well as Scotland’s tax income and public spending.

  • Northeast, despite highest gas costs, resists more pipelines

    There is near universal agreement that the Northeast has to expand its energy supply to rein in the nation's highest costs and that cheap, abundant, relatively clean natural gas could be at least a short-term answer. Proposals to build or expand natural gas pipelines are met with an upswell of citizen discontent. At the end of last year, a Massachusetts route selected by Texas-based Kinder Morgan generated so much venom that the company nudged it north into New Hampshire — where the venom is also flowing freely.
