Theresa May and Nicola Sturgeon meet ahead of Article 50

The prime minister has met Scotland's first minister in a Glasgow hotel as she prepares to formally trigger Article 50. Theresa May and Nicola Sturgeon held talks for about an hour during the prime minister's trip to Scotland. Ms Sturgeon said the talks were cordial but she was "frustrated by a process that appears not to be listening". The prime minister had earlier repeated her opposition to an independence referendum during the Brexit process. The Scottish Parliament is expected to back Ms Sturgeon's call for a referendum on Tuesday. What is Article 50? Do voters want a second referendum? All you need to know about Brexit The first minister says a fresh vote is needed ahead of Brexit to allow the people of Scotland to choose which path to follow. Mrs May has repeatedly said that "now is not the time" for an independence referendum, but has not ruled out one being held after the Brexit process is complete. Ahead of the meeting, the prime minister said leaving the European Union would be an opportunity to strengthen the ties between the nations of the United Kingdom. Ms Sturgeon later told BBC Scotland that she had wished the prime minister well for the forthcoming negotiations with the EU, which she said the Scottish government wanted to play a constructive part in. But she said she had been frustrated that Mrs May had not made any concessions over the first minister's demands for a distinctive Brexit deal for Scotland. ANALYSIS Brian Taylor, BBC Scotland political editor The prime and first ministers do not see eye to eye. Not out of badness but because they disagree fundamentally and deeply about the future of Scotland. Such differences cannot be elided by a relatively short chat in a Glasgow hotel. There was symbolism surrounding all of the prime minister's visit. Theresa May was out to demonstrate that Scotland was a key part of her thinking ahead of the triggering of Article 50 on Wednesday, beginning the process of removing Britain from the EU. Read more from Brian here. The first minister also said Mrs May had told her that she expects the terms of the UK's future relationship with the EU to become clear within the next 18 to 24 months - within Ms Sturgeon's timetable for an independence referendum. Ms Sturgeon said: "I have said that I want people in Scotland to have an informed choice when the terms of Brexit are clear. "She has confirmed to me today that that will be in a period from autumn next year to the spring of 2019. That would underline my view that is the right timescale"

Fights erupt at pro-Donald Trump rally on California beach

At least one demonstrator is doused with pepper spray as anti-Trump protesters clash with the president’s supporters Donald Trump supporters holding a rally on a popular southern Californian beach have clashed with counter-protesters, leading to the arrest of four people, law enforcement said. Multiple fights broke out and at least one Trump supporter was doused with pepper spray on Saturday when pro-Trump demonstrators marching along Bolsa Chica state beach encountered a small group opposed to the Republican president who had gathered to denounce the rally. 'He's a street fighter': Trump fans rally after heavy blow on healthcare Read more Four counter-protesters were arrested, three for illegal use of pepper spray and one for assault and battery, Kevin Pearsall, a spokesman for the California state parks police, said on Saturday evening. The fights appeared to start in the early afternoon when around a dozen anti-Trump protesters dressed in all black refused to move from a bike path to allow a larger group of pro-Trump supporters taking part in the Make America Great Again rally to pass. The confrontation escalated into a fight with more skirmishes quickly breaking out. At least one person was pepper-sprayed by an anti-Trump protester, Pearsall said. Park police estimated that 2,000 Trump supporters flocked to the stretch of coastline located south of the ocean-side community of Huntington Beach. Around 20 counter-protesters attended, Pearsall said. Known as Surf City, USA, Huntington Beach is located some 40 miles (64 km) south of Los Angeles. Video footage from social media uploaded to the Los Angeles Times’ website showed a chaotic scene with men fighting in the sand and a group of around 20 Trump supporters, some carrying Trump flags, chasing a man in a black mask away from the beach and on to a freeway. The man was stopped by members of the California highway patrol, the newspaper said. The masked man had used pepper spray on a female rally organiser and was set upon by a group of Trump supporters, the newspaper reported. Demonstrations denouncing the Trump administration have drawn hundreds of thousands since he took office in January. Smaller rallies have been staged across the country in support of Trump. On Saturday, Trump praised his supporters on Twitter: “Thanks you for all of the Trump Rallies today. Amazing support. We will all MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

Make Johnsons Beach a DOG FRIENDLY BEACH PARK

As we have no dog friendly beaches and this end of the city has no dog park near or easily accessible to those unable to walk a steep trail I would like it considered that Johnson's beach is the perfect location to designate a dog friendly beach. It's small, remote from other beaches enough that it would cause no issues and yet easily accessible to everyone by walk, driving or bus. Leash laws could still be intact which means no fencing would be needed while allowing dogs to cool down especially on those severely hot days. Poop and scoop laws can still be enforced and all using the beach can be encouraged to report any who fail to follow it. This would mean no real cost would be placed on the city by simply allowing the animals to access the water.
