    The countdown is now on for the return of UK Carrier Strike. TIM ROBINSON reports from BAE Systems Warton on the behind the scenes activity to make the Lockheed Martin F-35B ready for the Royal Navy's new Queen Elizabeth class. In just over a year's time, one lucky UK test pilot is set to perform a historic flight - the first landing of a new fighter aircraft on a brand-new aircraft carrier - a double first that is a major milestone. "This is the SuperBowl of flight test - a once in a lifetime opportunity," enthuses RAF F-35B test pilot...

    British drivers will face extra checks when renting cars and vans to ensure they are not extremists in the wake of a string of deadly terror attacks using vehicles. Ministers are ordering the crackdown amid growing concern over how easily extremists are renting vehicles and using them to mow down pedestrians in attacks. It comes after 14 people were killed when terrorists ploughed into passersby in Barcelona and seaside town of Cambrils on Thursday. This year in the UK, vehicles have been at the centre of deadly attacks on Westminster, London Bridge and Finsbury Park. The incidents sparked suggestions van...

    Teen girl raped twice in one night near UK train station A 14-year-old girl was raped twice in one night, once at a Birmingham, England, train station late Tuesday and again after the teen said she flagged down a car for help, according to British authorities. Cops on Saturday nabbed two men accused in the first sex attack at the Witton station hours after sharing photos of the track suit-wearing suspects from surveillance footage. Both men, ages 27 and 37, are accused of raping the teen, British Transport Police said in a news release. The suspects were not identified. The...

    A major double manhunt has been launched after a sickening back-to-back assault in Birmingham, England. Detectives said the teen was first attacked in a secluded part of Witton railway station, near the Aston Villa football ground, about 120 miles northwest of London, sometime between 7 p.m. Tuesday and 2 a.m. Wednesday. The victim had walked to the station with her friend but was led away by a man who approached her. Shortly after that attack, the girl walked out of the station and flagged down a passing vehicle to ask for help. But after getting in the car, she was...

    In March the Department of Education and Formation of the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales published a guideline for teachers called “Learning to Love” about Catholic relationship and sex education. Deacon Nick Donnelly points out on Twitter (July 26) that the document “equates homosexual ‘love’ with heterosexual love”. The document writes about high forms of love emphasising that bonds of love "exist just as powerfully in relationships between people of the same sex as it does in heterosexual relationships.” The bishops “applaud the great progress that has been made in countering all forms of discrimination against homosexuality”.

    FULL TITLE: Charlie Gard’s Parents End Their Fight to Save His Life, Say It’s Too Late for Experimental Treatment The parents of the little boy Charlie Gard, who had been fighting a hospital to save his life say they are ending their legal battle to get him an experimental treatment. Chris Gard and Connie Yates wanted to take their son to the United States for an experimental treatment. They raised more than $1.5 million for his care. His parents said they know the chance of the experimental treatment working is slim, but they want to try anyway for Charlie’s sake....

    In the course of the hearing, British high court Justice Francis said their son cannot be moved to the United States for treatment without a court order, squashing hope that a move to grant him residency in the U.S. would help him, according to The Independent. Earlier this week, U.S. Congressional leaders approved a measure to grant Charlie and his parents permanent residency status in an effort to make it easier for him to receive an experimental treatment. Pro-life Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Washington, led the effort; her daughter also was diagnosed with a fatal condition but survived because of...

    The Times of London ^ | May 28 2017
    This is a story in two parts, without a happy ending, or indeed an ending of any sort. I thought it only fair to warn you. If you remember, the summer of 2015 brought almost daily horror stories of refugees being drowned at sea or suffocating in lorries while seeking asylum in Europe. The climax was the picture of a dead Syrian boy, Alan Kurdi, washed up on a Turkish beach, though for some reason I was more haunted by a photograph of a Syrian mother trying to hold her baby above the waves. She was my personal tipping point,...

    The General Synod of the Church of England has voted to ‘welcome transgender people’ by considering preparing a church service as a way to “mark a person’s gender transition”. The official church of the United Kingdom voted four to one in favour amongst the Clergy and more than two to one amongst the Laity (members who are not Clergy) at the four-day Synod, the motion reading: “That this Synod, recognising the need for transgender people to be welcomed and affirmed in their parish church, call on the House of Bishops to consider whether some nationally commended liturgical materials might be...

    Both the U.S. president and the pope himself have weighed in on the case of Charlie Gard, the British 10-month-old whose life support is set to be removed after rulings by European courts. Now some Kansas conservatives also are speaking up about the terminally ill baby, drawing comparisons to Simon’s Law, which went into effect Saturday in Kansas. “We believe every one of us is created in the image of God and has dignity, and that includes Charlie even though he’s sick and small,” said Eric Teetsel, president of the Family Policy Alliance of Kansas. “We believe he has the...

    A police officer has told how he fought off the three London Bridge attackers with his baton despite being temporarily blinded in one eye after he was stabbed in the head. Speaking publicly for the first time since the terrorist attack earlier this month, Wayne Marques, who received several major knife wounds, said the adrenaline prevented him from realising how badly he had been injured. He said he took a deep breath and charged at the first attacker, swinging at him “with everything I had as hard as I could, straight through his head, trying to go for a knockout...

    I teach in a mixed comprehensive in a constituency where on 8 June over two-thirds voted Labour, where an overwhelming majority voted Labour in the most recent mayoral vote, and where Labour has been the largest party on the local council for decades. A large majority of staff at our school vote Labour. As a Labour supporter, this thrills me; as a teacher, it makes me question whether my school is doing enough to help our students appreciate other viewpoints. As teachers, we are bound by the 1996 Education Act to present different political beliefs impartially and to not promote...

    The supreme function of statesmanship is to provide against preventable evils. In seeking to do so, it encounters obstacles which are deeply rooted in human nature. One is that by the very order of things such evils are not demonstrable until they have occurred: at each stage in their onset there is room for doubt and for dispute whether they be real or imaginary. By the same token, they attract little attention in comparison with current troubles, which are both indisputable and pressing: whence the besetting temptation of all politics to concern itself with the immediate present at the expense...

    Parliament has been hit by a cyber attack that has left MPs unable to access their emails if not in Westminster. MPs were alerted to the hack on Friday night and have reported problems getting into their email accounts on Saturday. The attack comes just days after reports that passwords of ministers were being flogged online after hacking groups managed to gain access. The parliamentary authorities are working with the National Cyber Security Centre to protect the network and ascertain the scale of the damage.
