    • In an op-ed for The Telegraph titled Why I will not allow the British people’s vote for Brexit to be sabotaged, PM Theresa May writes:
    • "On Thursday, the High Court decided that the government could not begin the process of withdrawing from the EU without the permission of MPs and members of the House of Lords. It is a decision the government will challenge in the Supreme Court.
    • "This may appear to be a debate about process, and the legal argument is complex, but in reality there is an important principle at stake. Parliament voted to put the decision about our membership of the EU in the hands of the British people. The people made their choice, and did so decisively. It is the responsibility of the government to get on with the job and to carry out their instruction in full.  MPs and peers who regret the referendum result need to accept what the people decided.
    • "Instead of re-fighting the battles of the past, we should be focusing on how we can come together as a country to make the most of this great national opportunity..."

    • The U.K. central bank no longer expects to cut interest rates again this year, and hints that it's turned its eye back to inflation. The pound's sharp decline has "adversely affected" the balance of needs of the economy, says the MPC, now seeing CPI rising above its 2% target early next year.
    • The bank also boosted its GDP growth estimate for this year to 2.2% and for next year to 1.4%. 2018 is cut to 1.5%.
    • For now, the MPC left its benchmark rate unchanged at 0.25% and the QE program at £435B for Gilts and £10B for corporate paper.
    • The pound (NYSEARCA:FXB) is adding to gains, how higher by 1.4% to $1.2475. The FTSE 100 remains lower by 0.25%.
