    Today’s headlines include: UK Government say there will be no sudden drop in immigration following Brexit; and four Bahraini Policemen are injured in a bomb attack Sunday.

    There will be no sudden drop in immigration to the UK post-Brexit; that’s according to British Home Secretary Amber Rudd who said that the Government was "against cliff edges". We get response from former Scottish First Minister Henry McLeish.

    Four Bahraini policemen were wounded in a bomb attack Sunday. The blast took place near the village of Jaw where Shias convicted over anti-government protests are held. Bahrain is a Sunni-ruled monarchy and there has been unrest since Shia-led protests were crushed by authorities in 2011.

    The UK’s Opposition Labour party faces further woes as a new poll suggests that the leader — Jeremy Corbyn — who twice won a mandate through  leadership contests — is the wrong man to lead the party. But just how has the party fallen into decline at a time when the ruling Conservative party is also divided?
