George Soros, the financier who famously "broke the Bank of England," has warned of the dangers an independent Scotland may face.
Confused by Labour' pledge to have a referendum on Britain's membership of the EU? You are not alone.
The late Bob Crow took the trade unions back to their roots and left his members better off - and attracted many critics along the way.
ITV Deputy Political Editor Chris Ship has been tweeting from Ed Miliband's speech this morning on the European Union.
Ed Miliband ends his Q&A reaffirming his overall position: "We gain more not less from being part of the European Union"
The excesses of the EU include the "separate parliament building in Strasbourg" says Miliband
Miliband: what Cameron has done (pledged 2017 referendum) has "sent a chill down the spine of businesses round the world"
David Cameron has attacked Ed Miliband's EU referendum pledge, saying it makes "no sense whatsoever".
The Prime Minister told reporters on a flight to Israel: "It is not a proposal for an in/out referendum. It is a policy clearly designed by a committee who obviously couldn't agree what to do and have come up with a policy that makes no sense whatsoever."
He added: "It is absolutely clear - if you get Miliband, you don't get a referendum, you don't get a choice.
"It is the classic Labour 'we know best' approach to politics."
An in/out referendum on EU membership under a Labour government is "frankly unlikely", the shadow foreign secretary Douglas Alexander has said.
He said a vote was still "possible" if there was a transfer of powers from Westminster to Brussels.
ITV News Deputy Political Editor Chris Ship is at Ed Miliband's speech setting out Labour's position on an EU referendum:
So far: Miliband says we need to be IN European Union but it needs to change.
Well this bit is clear: tackling world problems more effective inside EU; UK stronger part of EU; economic case for membership overwhelming
Miliband: Cam's promises on Europe are "undefined, undeliverable and are now unravelling." <Might that also apply to Labour's new position?
A Guardian journalist accused the Attorney General Dominic Grieve of failing to show "reasonable grounds" for blocking the release of letters sent by Prince Charles to government ministers.
The High Court today ruled that Grieve's use of a ministerial veto to stop the letters being published was unlawful but the Attorney General said he will "pursue an appeal."
– A Guardian News & Media spokesperson
The public has a right to know if the heir to the throne is advocating policy or promoting causes to government ministers.
We welcome today's appeal court judgment finding that it was wrong to block the release of the letters.
We hope the Attorney General will recognise he has reached the end of the legal road and that government departments will now publish the correspondence so that the public can judge for themselves.
The minimum wage will rise by 19p to £6.50 per hour from 1 October 2014, the government has announced.
Business Secretary Vince Cable said: “The recommendations I have accepted today mean that low-paid workers will enjoy the biggest cash increase in their take home pay since 2008.
"This will benefit over one million workers on national minimum wage and marks the start of a welcome new phase in minimum wage policy."
The minimum wage for those aged between 18-20 years old will increase to £5.13 per hour, while those aged either 16 or 17 will receive £3.79.
We are disappointed by the decision in the Evans (Prince of Wales letters) case. To protect the principles at stake we will pursue an appeal
One of Ed Miliband's own MPs has hit out at the Labour leader's EU referendum pledge, calling the move a "shoddy compromise".
Backbencher Graham Stringer said:
""I think it's a shoddy compromise really, between those people in the Parliamentary Labour Party who want a referendum because the vast majority of the electorate want it, and those people desperate not to have a referendum."
