Airline shares under pressure after surprise Lufthansa profit warning – business live

German carrier warns on “aggressive” growth in low-cost competition

Wall Street has dipped at the open on Monday, as investors eye the Federal Reserve’s latest interest rates decision later in the week.

The S&P 500 gained 0.29% after the market opened to reach 2,890.62 points, while the Nasdaq rose by 0.29% to 7,819.29 points. The Dow Jones industrial average gained 0.07% to 26,106.9 points.

Boeing has agreed a first-of-its-kind deal which will supply parts to British Airways for its fleet of A320 planes, manufactured by its fierce rival Airbus.

The deal with British Airways owner International Airlines Group (IAG), one of the world’s largest airline groups, will mean that Boeing and its partners will own and manage a global exchange inventory of parts for the airline’s A320 and A320neo aircraft.

Tory leadership candidates take part in press gallery hustings but Johnson stays away - live news

Rolling coverage of the day’s political developments as they happen, including Tory leadership candidates take part in the press gallery hustings

At the Tory leadership hustings all the candidates were asked about President Trump’s decision to retweet a Katie Hopkins tweet approvingly, adding a message saying Sadiq Khan, the London mayor, has been a disaster.

LONDON needs a new mayor ASAP. Khan is a disaster - will only get worse! https://t.co/n7qKI3BbD2

I 100% disagree with both the language and the sentiment of the last sentence of this tweet. Can all candidates please confirm the same https://t.co/cx6gapQExQ

One of the most interesting lines in the hustings came when Sajid Javid, the home secretary, said that he went into banking because it was more meritocratic than other professions open to him. Javid was responding a question about why Rory Stewart seemed to be the candidate with the most momentum.

Javid started by saying that he did not have an elite education, like Rory Stewart. He was not a member of a debating society at Oxford. But he was getting better as a communicator, he said. He went on:

I might not be the most confident debater, I might not be the most confident speaker. But I think what people want to see is someone who is genuine, who is honest, who has answers and experience of life, real life, life in business.

The reason I got into banking, one of the reasons, is because for a young Asian like me, most Asians, they go into jobs that you need to take an exam for, like chartered accountant, dentist - it’s not because that’s what their parents think is the only thing open to them - the reason that happens is because their parents feel that discrimination is so inevitable in professions where you don’t have to take exams that the best way to get in is to have a piece of paper [showing you are qualified for the job]. So I did banking because it’s much more meritocratic.

The EU's Islamophobia is getting worse – Britain must fight this from within | Yasmin Qureshi

The EU abets Aung San Suu Kyi and Viktor Orbán, while also failing to challenge China’s abuse of its Muslim populations

The European elections last month were widely seen as a test of the EU’s resilience. Many were relieved that far-right parties did not do as well as feared. However, nationalism is still on the rise across the continent, and the EU is not an innocent bystander.

A meeting of two Islamophobes earlier this month brought this home to me. That day, Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi met with her Hungarian counterpart Viktor Orbán. At the top of their agenda was the danger of “continuously growing Muslim populations”. No surprises there. While Aung San Suu Kyi is complicit in the genocidal “ethnic cleansing” of some 1.1 million Rohingya Muslim refugees into Bangladesh, Orbán spearheaded the abhorrent fiction that the Jewish philanthropist George Soros is funding the mass migration of Muslims to Europe.
