I have visited Greece twice, the first time in 1980 I was pregnant with Angus and was uncomfortable in the August heat, the plumbing. But from the hotel window I could see the Acropolis, and I watched Spanish dancing and singing in the ancient stadium. After my travel-mate returned to Philadelphia from Athens, I traveled to Olympia, and was there exactly when the Olympic Games were held in Moscow. Wow. Olive trees. I remember olive trees and shady groves and a small Olympic Stadium that captured the imagination of so many in the world.

The second time was in Oct 2001, I was in Athens for an HIV/AIDS conference because right after 9/11, so many were afraid of flying, and I was very happy to fly anywhere.

Brexit: Boris Johnson claims EU will be 'flexible' if UK tries to get it to remove backstop - Politics live

Rolling coverage of the day’s political developments as they happen, including Boris Johnson’s Brexit speech

In the Q&A Boris Johnson was asked about a story in today’s Times (paywall) saying the the DUP “would be open to a soft Brexit that kept the whole of the UK in a customs union with Brussels”. Johnson said he had seen the story, but that he did not know what the DUP were actually saying on this and that he had concerns about the idea of the UK staying in the customs union.

Arlene Foster, the DUP leader, has just put out a statement saying the Times report is not true. She said:

The report published in the Times this morning about the DUP is inaccurate and no doubt designed to undermine efforts to get the necessary changes to the withdrawal agreement.

The prime minister is very clear on our position. We have been consistent that for us it is the backstop which needs to be dealt with.

Q: If parliament ruled out no deal, would you support May?

Johnson says he does not see how parliament can rule out no deal.

UK retail sales fall as shoppers cut back - business live

Rolling coverage of the latest economic and financial news

Earlier:

Richard Potter, CEO of retail AI firm Peak, has spotted an interesting line in the retail sales data -- people bought more bargains than ever before in December.

“The volume of goods purchased at a discounted rate stands at an all-time high. Some might say this is self-harm given the big margin squeeze we’re seeing retailers struggle to unlock.

It’s a fact that for many high street retailers the cost to fulfil an online order is higher than in store. So couple this with the Brexit effect one thing is for sure, retail has a transformational year ahead.”

The slowdown in retail spending may also show that materialism is fading, and some consumers simply don’t need more things in their lives.

Andrew Westbrook, head of retail at audit, tax and consulting firm RSM, thinks we may have reached ‘peak stuff’

There is undoubtedly significant distress on the high street with retailers having to compete through heavy discounting to gain their fair share of the market, leading to pressure on margins and profitability.

For the retailers that struggled over Christmas, the pressure will now be on to convert stock into cash ahead of the quarterly rent payment date which falls at the end of March.

With health system at breaking point, uncertainty over how virus is being transmitted prompt fears it could range beyond DRC

The number of Ebola cases recorded each day in the Democratic Republic of the Congo is expected to more than double, with concern mounting that uncertainty over how the virus is being transmitted could result in it spreading to neighbouring countries.

On Thursday, the World Health Organization (WHO) reiterated its warning that there is a very high risk of the outbreak spreading not only across DRC but also to Uganda, Rwanda and even South Sudan. The heightened danger of transmission is due to extensive travel between the affected areas.
