Get festive at these winters fairs: Christmas Markets in London 2018

It’s the most wonderful time of the year  nearly. Not only Britishers but from all around Europe families, tourists and teenagers plans to make a round of one of the Worlds known spot in Europe, London. Perhaps officials realised it and move strategies accordingly to accommodate every single tourists in the best possible way. In regards to space, food, entertainment and security of course.

It may still be a fair few weeks before the big day itself, but London is already getting into the Christmas spirit with a number of winter markets chock-full of mulled wine and mince pies.

There are Bavarian beer halls, street food extravaganzas, fondue igloos and plenty of other wintry delights to be had, so pull on your cosiest Christmas jumper, get your fake reindeer horns out and go down to one of these festive markets









The Southbank Centre’s popular Winter Market is returning this year with two new bars added to its array of yuletide delights. Cheese lovers should head to Bar Under the Bridge, which will be serving up a range of festively themed fromage snacks and cocktails, while the Circus Bar – complete with cosy fire pits – will be on hand to offer meaty snacks and plenty of mulled wine and cider to wash it all down with. Elsewhere there will be a range of stalls selling winter street food favourites from around the culinary globe. Instagrammers need only head to one place, though: Jimmy Garcia’s cheese fondue igloos.

London is known as the best tourist spot all around nearly 50 million people commute in London during a month, official stats. Keeping such a high volume of human displacement in view London Transport is well aware of all mandatory steps needed to be taken


Pilot test: EU citizen can now submit applications to remain in UK after Brexit

Impact of Brexit on Migrants , thats how they are reaching to UK from France

EU nationals wanting to stay in Britain after Brexit can start applying from today.

Home office started taking EU citizen applications today

So the first way of Brexit execution is visible as Home office trials begins and approached some citizen from liverpool and some from north west of England to submit their applications as they are living for more than 5 years in UK, after submission of forms they will undergo scrutiny and prudently allotted status of “Settled Status” to stay in UK. Every EU citizen living in UK for 5 or more years and has home would be asked to apply and avail this status and shun any thing odd.

However all those EU citizens living in UK for less than 5 years will have to wait for the remaining time and once they complete they could also submit their application in order to avail the “Settled Status”, its not yet decided the how the time difference would be catered.

Applications will cost £65 for adults and £32.50 for children under the age of 16.

Applicants will be asked to prove their identity, declare any criminal convictions and upload a facial photograph

The first EU nationals wishing to apply to stay in the UK after Brexit are submitting their paperwork as part of a Home Office trial.

“Settled status” will allow non-British Europeans who have been living in the UK for at least five years to secure their right to stay in the country.

NHS workers in the north-west of England and students and staff from three Liverpool universities are among those invited to apply early for a “managed live trial” of the process, which the Home Office says should involve up to 4,000 people to iron out any kinks before a phased roll-out by the end of the year.

Since the UK voted to leave the EU on 23 June 2016, EU citizens who have made their homes in Britain have been securing their status by applying for “permanent residency” cards – an expensive and arduous bureaucratic process that was never designed to cater for them.

The inundation of applications led to a backlog at the Home Office and prompted Theresa May to unveil plans for the new “settled status” system.

Under the EU Settlement Scheme, EU citizens and family members who have been in the UK for five years by the end of 2020 will be able to apply for settled status, meaning they are free to go on living and working in the UK indefinitely.

The Home Office will check employment and benefits data to confirm proof of residence, while all applications will be run through UK criminality and security databases. Previously, EU applicants for permanent residency had to provide dossiers of documents proving where they were, and what they were doing, for the whole of their five years in the UK.

Those who have arrived by December 31 2020, but do not have five years’ residence, can apply for “pre-settled status” in a similar process, and then have their status upgraded free of charge to “settled” once they reach the five-year threshold.

The Home Office says it wants to make the process “as quick and user-friendly as possible”, and that the full scheme will be in place by 30 March 2019. It also reminds EU citizens that their rights will not change until the end of the Brexit transition period in 2021 and so they don’t need to apply straight away – presumably to avoid another inundation of paperwork.

3rd consecutive year: This airport has been ranked as worst Airport in UK

“Disastrous” customer service, long queues at passport control and security as well as poor airport facilities meant Luton trailed the pack in the latest Which? airport survey, with a “dismal” 35 per cent satisfaction rating.

London Stansted and Manchester T3 also performed poorly, coming in joint second from bottom with a customer service score of 44 per cent. The main complaint was long queues at security.

Luton for its worst customer service and operational reasons ranked as worst Airport for the third time. However Sheffield Airport ranked first with 87% satisfaction, Southend Airport stood second with 84%, Heathrow was nowhere in top 3. Manchester ranked 6th with 69% customer satisfaction

At the other end of the spectrum was Doncaster Sheffield Airport, which topped the chart with a customer satisfaction score of 87 per cent. Passengers praised short queues, facilities and fast baggage reclaim.

In London, Southend was voted the UK’s second-best airport (and the capital’s best) with an 84 per cent satisfaction score. Efficient bag drop, security and passport control were praised.

Heathrow’s customer satisfaction score depended on the terminal. T5 scored 63 per cent, while T3 was the worst rated with 55 per cent. A limited range of shops and restaurants and queues at passport control were behind the low score.

“With new routes launching all the time, passengers have an increasing choice over not just who they fly with but where they fly from,” says Rory Boland, editor of Which? Travel. If you can pick a smaller airport, choose Southend over Luton, and Doncaster Sheffield or Liverpool instead of Manchester to get your holiday off to a better start.”

The survey was based on 11,265 passenger visits to UK airports during April and May 2018, looking at everything from queues at bag drop to the cleanliness of the toilets.

Real Madrid’s to face setback after losing huge €400million in transfer plans


La Liga giants are reportedly looking to bring in Paris Saint-Germain’s Neymar

Real Madrid’s summer transfer plans may have suffered a serious setback after a €400million Santiago Bernabeu naming rights deal has fallen through.La Liga giants were last week granted a license to redevelop their home with Los Blancos chiefs keen to build a state of the art retractable roof. However, Spanish publication El Economista has reported that the €400m first agreed with Cepsa (a Spanish oil and gas company) in 2014 has been pulled. Apparently, the offer has been withdrawn because Mubadala, the majority shareholders of Cepsa, think the stadium project has not met its time frame and has been downscaled.

 Alexis Sanchez’s stunning move to Manchester United has also slammed the door on any potential return to Old Trafford for the Portuguese goal machine.But The Sun understands Ronaldo, 32, would be open to moving to Stamford Bridge in the summer.Ronaldo has failed to fire on all cylinders this season, with Real Madrid trailing Barcelona by 16 points in La Liga.The five-time Ballon d’Or-winner is also annoyed that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has told him cannot have a pay rise which he was promised after winning the 2017 Champions League.

Real Madrid's transfer plans suffer setback after losing huge €400million Santiago Bernabeu naming rights deal

Neymar’s proposed move to Real Madrid has been backed by Javier Tebas, with the Liga president eager to see the former Barcelona star back in Spain. Less than six months on from a record-breaking €222 million move from Camp Nou to Paris Saint-Germain, the Brazil international is already being linked with another big-money transfer, with Santiago Bernabeu considered to be his most likely destination.

Karim Benzema has rejected two offers to leave Real Madrid, Don Balon reports.Florentino Perez is eager to shake up his squad, with the entire forward line marked for replacement as the president looks to get the Spanish capital side back in form.Benzema’s refusal to move on, however, coupled with the difficulty of trying to sell Cristiano Ronaldo, has left the 70-year-old in a difficult position
