• Jolie has warm words for estranged husband Pitt

    Angelina Jolie had warm words for her estranged husband Brad Pitt and is optimistic about the future of their family, the Hollywood star said in an interview Tuesday. Jolie and Pitt, once Hollywood's most celebrated couple known as "Brangelina," are in the midst of a high-profile divorce and last month reached an agreement to keep private the details of their split and battle over custody of their six children. "We are focusing on the health of our family," Jolie said on ABC's "Good Morning America." "We will be stronger when we come out of this because that's what we're determined to do as a family." The actress was asked if she still thought of Pitt as a wonderful father, which is how she had described him in the past.

The suggestion that Britain should pay in instalments up until 2023 was made at a meeting earlier this month between Michel Barnier, the European Commission’s chief Brexit negotiator, and senior officials from the 27 remaining EU member states. The aim of the payments would be to help smooth over the €10bn-a-year black hole left in the EU budgets by Britain’s departure from the EU, which could see richer countries like Germany and France paying more, or poorer countries, like Poland and Hungary receiving less.
