out her desire to creating a more united Britain.


In the next few weeks Theresa May will


formally start the Brexit negotiating process.


At the same time the First Minister would like


to discuss the UK's future post-Brexit.


If we don't have any rules at all about what can happen


in the UK after we leave the EU, we could have a rade war


-- in the UK after we leave the EU, we could have a trade war

Rugby - and Wales lost to France in a dramatic end


They led by five points until the 99th minute of the game,


in one of the longest matches on record.


They were playing for position, second, that is. Four tries and a


bonus point in Paris, but this was France crossing the line. The Welsh


response was halted. A sin bin for a deliberate knocking on. On offence


Jonathan Davies had just got away with. But no penalty try. The


referee less satisfied than the crowd that George North would have


scored. Three points from Leigh Halfpenny would have to do. Again


and again. The full-back narrowed the gap as the Frenchman returned to


the pitch and just before half-time, Wales one point behind after a mixed


bazaar. It was not the start to the second many wanted. The captain was


off after ten minutes. Leigh Halfpenny provided consolation,


giving the Welsh the lead with a 55 metre penalty but it was the end


that mattered. The Blues brought on a fresh prop after 80 minutes and


then a yellow card for Samsung after some confusion for everyone when


Thomas Francis replaced him, but they played on so long that he came


back on before a bizarre break to check if George North had been


bitten. It's descended into farce. But France were the team eventually


emerging on top. Just five seconds short of 100 minutes, they got the


try with a kick sealing it for the French, 20-18.
