    ... Nigel Farage launched a scathing attack on Theresa May following her crushing defeat in Parliament, arguing she should now resign. After being asked whether the Prime Minister should step down, Mr Farage replied: “Of course she should.” The former Ukip leader told Channel 4 News: “If we’d gone for Brexit, if we had a Prime Minister that believed in Brexit, it would have been done and dusted by now. The problem is we have somebody who didn’t believe in it, and we saw tonight after she lost by that massive margin of 230.” News presenter Jon Snow asked: “So...

    The Duchess of Cambridge went out shooting the day after her animal-loving sister-in-law left Sandringham. Kate, 36, has become a keen markswoman – and has even invested in her own shotgun, sources say. But she waited until after Meghan's departure on Boxing Day to join her husband, Prince William, and other family members to blast pheasants, partridges and ducks on the Queen's 20,000-acre Norfolk estate on Thursday. Last week the Mail told how Prince Harry had joined his family for their traditional post-Christmas shoot, despite claims he was banned by his new wife, who is expecting their first child in...

    On its face, Trump’s announcement that he is pulling US forces out of Syria seems like an unfriendly act toward Israel. But it isn’t. On its face, President Donald Trump’s announcement that he is pulling US forces out of Syria seems like an unfriendly act towards Israel. But it isn’t. Trump’s decision to pull US forces out of Syria is of a piece with outgoing US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley’s address on Tuesday to the UN Security Council regarding the Palestinian conflict with Israel. Both statements reflect the depths of the administration’s friendship and support for the State...

    The Spectator ^ | December 14, 2018 | Matthew Lynn
    The ports will be clogged up with lorries. The shelves at Tesco will be empty. Doctors will be rationing antibiotics, and the army will be called out to deliver food. As we approach the deadline for our departure from the European Union, as the Prime Minister returns empty handed yet again from yet another catastrophic round of negotiations in Brussels, and as the cliff-edge gets closer and closer, the conventional wisdom is that the pressure on Britain to agree to something – anything! – becomes more and more intense. And yet, as so often in the through-the-looking glass world of...

    A pest controller has snared a monster 21-inch long rat he believes is the biggest ever caught in Britain. Terry Walker, 53, was working with his trusty dog Max when they trapped the enormous creature as it was shuffling from beneath some rubbish behind a row of shops in Bournemouth on Friday. The catch means Mr Walker has regained the record he lost last year to rival exterminator Daren George.

    In the name of scientific “progress,” Newcastle’s Freeman Hospital in the United Kingdom recently tried to pioneer the use of a surgical robot that it tasked with repairing a patient’s damaged heart valve, only to have the machine go completely bonkers and ultimately kill the man on the operating table. According to reports, this first-time-use robot not only physically assaulted a living medic while attempting to conduct its programmed surgery, but also implanted stitches into the patient’s heart in a manner that physicians present during the fiasco described as not being in “an organised fashion.” A situation that can only...

    If there’s one thing you probably want to avoid as a member of the Royal household staff it’s getting on Queen Elizabeth’s bad side. Especially, if you’re her personal chef. In the new book, "Dinner at Buckingham Palace," written by former royal servant Charles Oliver, he reveals that the queen was royally peeved when she bit into her dinner salad only to find a slug in her greens. (Honestly, can you blame her for being mad?)According to Oliver, the queen and Prince Philip regularly eat their meals with notepads so they can send their suggestions back to the kitchen. This time,...

    Thanks to the current imbroglio over Brexit, Britain could soon be Venezuela without the oil or the warm weather. The stunning incompetence of the last two Tory prime ministers, David Cameron and Theresa May, might result in a Labour government, one led by Jeremy Corbyn, a man who has long admired Hugo Chavez for having reminded him—though not the people of Venezuela—what governments can do for the poor and the achievement of social justice. Corbyn’s second in command, John McDonnell, would, as Chancellor of the Exchequer, be in charge of the economy. Only five years ago, he said that the...
