Whether cheating on taxes or one's lover, the little lies we tell can quickly escalate into big ones, according to a study released Monday that describes dishonesty as a "slippery slope". Indeed, the biochemical link is so strong that scientists could accurately predict in experiments how big a lie someone was about to tell just by looking at the brain scan of their previous prevarications. "This study is the first empirical evidence that dishonest behaviour escalates when it is repeated," said lead author Neil Garret, a researcher in the Department of Experimental Psychology at University College London.
By Kylie MacLellan LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May tried to persuade the leaders of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland on Monday to work with her government on a common Brexit negotiating position, but the Scottish leader dismissed the meeting as "deeply frustrating". May says that while the devolved governments of the UK's three smaller nations should give their views on what the terms of Brexit should be, they must not undermine the UK's strategy by seeking separate settlements with the EU. "I don't know what the UK's negotiating position is because they can't tell us," Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said after talks at May's Downing Street office.
