Reenacted budget in 2019 to push up to 400K Filipinos into poverty

Reenacting the 2018 national budget for next year will not only slow down economic growth as government spending gets reduced, but also lead to job losses and push hundreds of thousands to poverty. Department of Budget and Management (DBM) estimates showed that expenditures in 2019 will be cut by a total of P219.8 billion if a reenacted budget would be spent instead of passing the proposed P3.757-trillion cash-based appropriations. In particular, disbursements for personnel services will be reduced by P54.4 billion; maintenance and other operating expenses (MOOE) by P14.3 billion; subsidies by P28.3 billion; and capital outlays by P122.9 billion. Based on estimates of the st...Keep on reading: Reenacted budget in 2019 to push up to 400K Filipinos into poverty.....»»

EU court rules UK can change mind over Brexit

BRUSSELS --- The European Union's top court ruled Monday that Britain can change its mind over Brexit, boosting the hopes of people who want to stay in the EU that the process can be reversed. The European Court of Justice ruled that when an EU member country has notified its intent to leave, "that member state is free to revoke unilaterally that notification." Britain voted in 2016 to leave the 28-nation bloc, and invoked Article 50 of the EU's Lisbon Treaty in March 2017, triggering a two-year exit process. Article 50 contains few details, in part because the idea of any country leaving was considered unlikely.
