  3. Supreme Court: Suspending Parliament was unlawful, judges rule Image: Reuters Boris Johnson's decision to suspend Parliament was unlawful, the Supreme Court has ruled. Mr Johnson suspended - or prorogued - Parliament for five weeks earlier this month, saying it was to allow a Queen's Speech to outline his new policies. But the court said it was wrong to stop Parliament carrying out its duties in the run-up to the Brexit deadline. The court's president, Lady Hale, said: "The effect on the fundamentals of our democracy was extreme."

  4. Pound drops as fears of no-deal Brexit grow LONDON (Reuters) - Sterling dived on Wednesday as concerns rose that the United Kingdom may be headed for a disruptive no-deal Brexit after Prime Minister Boris Johnson moved to restrict parliamentary time before Oct. 31. Johnson said on Wednesday he would schedule a Queen’s Speech for Oct. 14 in order to launch new legislation. He denied he was seeking to prevent parliament from obstructing his Brexit plans. The move limits the amount of parliamentary time available to lawmakers who want to prevent him taking the country out of the EU without an exit deal. The pound, already trading lower on the day, extended its drop to hit $1.2156, a six-day low, and was last down 0.7% on the day GBP=D3. Against the euro the British currency also weakened to 91.265 pence, its lowest in nearly a week, trading last down by 0.7% at 90.89 pence EURGBP=D3. “For the pound to recover the fall this morning, anti-no deal MPs will have to get their acts together in the first weeks of September,” Jordan Rochester, a strategist at Nomura said, raising the odds of a no deal Brexit to 44% vs 40% earlier. The latest move from Johnson comes a day after lawmakers who are opposed to a no-deal Brexit met to discuss ways they could use parliamentary procedure to force Johnson to seek a delay to Brexit. Sterling had rallied in recent days on hopes that Britain’s opposition parties can stop a no-deal Brexit. On Tuesday, it hit a one-month high against the dollar and the euro. Johnson has said the UK is leaving the European Union with or without a deal on Oct. 31, and media have previously reported that he wants to suspend parliament to help force through an exit. -- © Copyright Reuters 2019-08-28 Follow Thaivisa on LINE for breaking Thailand news and visa info

  14. Online 90 day reporting available from April 1st BANGKOK: A spokesperson for Thailand’s Immigration Bureau has confirmed the new online service for 90 day reporting will be effective from April 1st 2015. Col. Worawat Amornwiwat confirmed on Thursday that foreign nationals in Thailand will now be able to report their address via the Immigration Bureau’s website, rather than having to attend their local immigration office in person or send the notification by registered mail. Col. Worawat said the new service has been introduced as part of Thailand’s integration into the ASEAN Economic Community and will provide more convenience for foreigners staying in Thailand. Foreign nationals staying in Thailand can make their 90 day report online by completing the form at https://extranet.immigration.go.th/fn90online/online/tm47/TM47Action.do or by visiting the main ]Immigration Bureau website Whilst the new service of online 90 day reporting is likely to be largely welcomed by many expats and foreign nationals residing in Thailand, the downside is that the service is only currently available via Microsoft’s Internet Explorer - a web browser which Microsoft has recently said it will replace as part of the launch of Windows 10 later this year. Immigration officials have said that the online 90 day reporting service will hopefully be available on other web browsers at some point in the future but have not given any further indication of when this will be. After being originally announced in February there have been various discussions[/size on the Thaivisa Forum related to online 90 day reporting, with some expats raising concerns about the security and efficiency of the system being able to service what is an important requirement for foreign nationals who live in Thailand. ******************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************** Update Immigration has changed the address for the online reporting. The new one is https://extranet.immigration.go.th/fn90online
