    Today’s headlines include: Early coverage of the suspected terrorist attack in London, outside of Parliament in Westminster; and we look at plans for the EU’s first Brexit Summit next month.


    Just days after the UK Prime Minister Theresa May announced the date on which formal notification of Brexit would be issued to the European Union… and European Council President Donald Tusk has announced the first Brexit summit for April twenty ninth.  We’ll be looking at how these developments might shift the balance of power, now that the Brexit clock is formally ticking.
