  11. Yorkshire MEP hits out at Rees-Mogg over EU iPad tweets

    A Yorkshire MEP has hit out at a newly-elected MEP after she described a free iPad she was given as part of her new role as an example of "the corrupt gravy train" of the EU.

    Annunziata Rees-Mogg

    Annunziata Rees-Mogg‏, a Brexit MEP for the East Midlands and sister of Conservative MP Jacob, posted on Twitter about the "shiny new iPad I was given by the European Parliament for no very obvious reason".

    Responding, Labour MEP Richard Corbett said she wanted to "rubbish everything about the EU, even when you know the truth.

    "The Parliament gives you an iPad configured to parliamentary work, so you don’t need so many paper documents, saving money and trees, and can work more effectively," he added.

  14. Transport investment needed as northern services decline

    Northern mayors and council leaders want more investment in transport after figures showed train services have got worse, despite the push of a Northern Powerhouse.

    A Northern train

    Cities like Leeds, Sheffield and Hull were encouraged to work together both in rivalling London and the South East and to "take on the world", with more jobs and opportunities.

    But five years on, doubt has been cast on just how successful the project has been, with transport being one key area that officials want to improve.

    The number of cancelled and significantly late trains on TransPennine Express and Northern franchises more than doubled from 20,000 in 2014-15 to 47,000 in 2018-19. It meant that almost one in every 20 services was either cancelled or more than 30 minutes late arriving at its destination.

    Dan Jarvis

    Mayor of the Sheffield City Region Dan Jarvis, said the government should see the north as "an asset, not a liability" and said Westminster had "let the north down".

    Judith Blake, leader of Leeds City Council, said: "The northern authorities are working much more closely together and that's a real benefit.

    "The real difficulty we have is that (transport) schemes are delayed and there's a real lack of commitment to rebalancing the economy."
