Another week has gone by, and if you’ve been paying attention to One News Page this past seven days, you will likely have noticed that it’s been a week all about Brexit – and while we will, of course, look at what’s gone down in the UK in our brief below, there have been a number of other dramatic news alerts which have been well worth taking notice of. Here’s our news digest for the past seven days in case you’ve missed anything.
Brexit: What Now?
What to say about UK Prime Minister Theresa May and Brexit this week? Having seemingly seen off the threat of a vote of no confidence in her leadership thus far, a draft agreement appears to have been agreed upon by May and EU representatives as to how the country will leave the European Union. This week has also seen the DUP apparently withhold support for the government with regard to controversies in May’s Brexit proposals, while the British media has been busy weighing up whether or not the public will be expected to vote in a second referendum before the full divorce in March 2019. As always, speculation is rife – and the whole process is proving to be a bit of a muddle regardless of the side you stand on.

Ivanka Trump Faces Email Controversy – Sound Familiar?
It’s emerged this week that President Trump’s daughter Ivanka has been chastized for having used a personal email address to send official White House correspondence. While official sources state that Ms Trump has reportedly stopped using her email for such endeavors – and that no confidential data was shared – many have been quick to draw parallels between these revelations and those which dogged former Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton over her use of a private email server in a professional capacity under Barack Obama.

Dolce & Gabbana Upset Chinese Fashionistas
Reports also emerged this week that Dolce & Gabbana co-founder Stefano Gabbana allegedly made a number of derogatory comments about China through social media – leading to a prestigious event in Shanghai for the fashion brand to be cancelled at the last minute. While Gabbana himself has claimed that the comments arose as a result of hacking, many Chinese fashion agencies and celebrities feel that enough damage has already been done.

Venom is Set to Outsell Comic Book Movie Juggernauts
Thanks to a huge amount of box office money generated overseas, critically-divided movie Venom appears to be set to outsell the immensely successful Deadpool on a global scale. Set to coast past $800 million worldwide at the time of writing, the movie has already more than made back its budget – which could mean we see more of Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock in the near future.
