Britain to leave EU market as May sets 'hard Brexit' course

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May answers questions after delivering a speech on leaving the European Union at Lancaster House in LondonBy Kylie MacLellan and William James LONDON (Reuters) - Britain will quit the EU single market when it leaves the European Union, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Tuesday in a decisive speech that set a course for a clean break with the world's largest trading bloc. Setting out a vision that could determine Britain's future for generations and the shape of the EU itself, May answered criticism that she has been coy about her strategy with a 12-point plan for what has been dubbed a "hard Brexit". May promised to seek the greatest possible access to European markets but said Britain would aim to establish its own free trade deals with countries far beyond Europe, and impose limits on immigration from the continent.

Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov and Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Zakharova attend a news conference in MoscowBy Andrew Osborn and Vladimir Soldatkin MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday that Moscow was ready to talk to U.S. President-elect Donald Trump's new administration about nuclear weapons and Syria, saying the two countries could together solve many of the world's problems.

On Tuesday evening, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said the military had begun "movement" against Islamic State in the west of Mosul without specifying what action was being taken there. Three months after the start of the U.S.-backed campaign, Islamic State has been driven out of about three quarters of the eastern districts of its Iraqi stronghold, ceding large areas along the Tigris River, which bisects Mosul from north to south.

'My mother didn't love me enough' says French writer Houellebecq

Controversial, award-winning French author Michel Houellebecq stands next to his x-rayed skull as he visits his exhibition at Manifesta 11, the roving European Biennial of contemporary art, on June 10, 2016 in ZurichControversial French novelist Michel Houellebecq admitted Tuesday that the bleakness at the heart of his work was because his mother didn't love him enough. "It explains everything else, my personality, the most painful parts anyway," he said in the book, which also includes tributes to his work penned by fellow novelists Salman Rushdie and Julian Barnes as well as the rock star Iggy Pop. Although Houellebecq later played down the emotional privations of his childhood in an interview on French public television, his relations with the hippy doctor he once branded "my old slut of a mother" were notoriously bad.

Wall Street declines as some post-election gainers reverse

Traders work on the floor of the NYSE in New YorkU.S. stocks fell on Tuesday, with financials, transports and other big post-election gainers losing ground as earnings season kicked into gear.

BAT, which already owned 42 percent of Reynolds, will pay $29.44 in cash and 0.5260 BAT shares for each Reynolds share, it said, a 26 percent premium over the price of the stock on Oct. 20, the day before BAT's first offer was made public.
