    The latest installment of the Netflix chronicle of the royals seeks to slime Margaret Thatcher, but the Charles-Diana soap opera undermines the series’ political slant.Since its debut in 2016, fans of the Netflix series “The Crown” have been looking forward to when this depiction of the life of Queen Elizabeth II would take the story of the royal family and British politics into the 1980s. For Americans who love the show because it satisfies their yen for celebrity gossip with a gloss of politics and social commentary, the arrival of Princess Diana as a major character was highly anticipated.Much of...
  • Carrie Symonds holds the 'real power in No 10', body language experts say: 'Dishevelled' Boris Johnson 'lacks any authority' while his fiancée is 'by far the most confident' and watches him like a 'naughty schoolboy'

    Carrie Symonds has risen to hold ‘real power in No 10’ while her Prime Minister fiancé Boris Johnson has become ‘dishevelled and lacking in any signals of dignity or authority’. Analysis of pictures and videos of the couple have shown a switch of authority between the pair, according to body language and relationship experts. One told MailOnline today 'It’s as if the power balance in their relationship has reversed, which may well be spilling into Boris’s professional decision making as well'. The stunning role switch was laid bare by a influence struggle in the heart of Downing Street last night...

    New PM shows ruthless streak as he packs team with Brexiters and rightwingers Boris Johnson has signalled his ruthless determination to deliver Brexit and stoked speculation about an early election by sacking more than half of Theresa May’s cabinet and packing his team with Vote Leave veterans and rightwing free marketeers. Despite Johnson’s repeated insistence that he is a one-nation Conservative, he handed the job of home secretary to Priti Patel, who advocated the return of capital punishment as recently as 2011, and the Treasury to Sajid Javid, a fan of Margaret Thatcher. Dominic Raab, who made headlines during his...

    ... While the Leave victory in the referendum was just 52-48, almost two-thirds of Britain’s parliamentary constituencies voted to leave, so Johnson has in his back pocket the ability to win an election on the issue, even if he has to form an alliance with the original Brexit leader, Nigel Farage, who swept the anachronistic Euro-elections in May. Johnson has astutely pledged to attempt to gain a satisfactory compromise with Brussels on a genuine departure from the EU, but unlike Theresa May, he has made it clear he would rather leave without an arrangement with Brussels, “crash out” as the...

    ●Johnson has formally become prime minister following an audience with the queen and has delivered his first speech at Downing Street. ●He will now begin to form his cabinet. LONDON — The transition of power in Britain’s parliamentary democracy is brutal — and lightning quick. Outgoing Prime Minister Theresa May curtsied to Queen Elizabeth II on Wednesday afternoon and resigned. Soon after, Boris Johnson bowed and was asked to form a new government. “The doubters, the doomsters, the gloomsters are going to get it wrong again,” Johnson said in his first remarks as prime minister outside 10 Downing Street. “The...

    LONDON — Boris Johnson has won the contest to replace Theresa May as leader of the Conservative Party after she announced that she would step down in June to pave the way for a new prime minister. Business Insider has taken a look at Johnson's long history of controversies and gaffes, which include calling gay men "tank-topped bumboys," reciting colonial poetry in Burma, and rugby-tackling a 10-year-old child. * August 2018: Muslim women in burkas 'look like letter boxes' Johnson was accused of Islamophobia in 2018 after he wrote that Muslim women wearing burkas "look like letter boxes."

  • Benjamin Netanyahu: Now Israel’s Longest-Serving Prime Minister

    He persisted. On July 20, Benjamin Netanyahu becomes Israel’s longest-serving prime minister. His first tenure lasted from 1996 to 1999. This second stint began in 2009. Bibi has won five elections since. The most recent victory, in April, was Pyrrhic. He failed to form a government. An unprecedented rematch is set for September. Whatever the result, Netanyahu’s historical legacy is assured. He has proven to be not only a skilled and charismatic political operator, but also a remarkably effective steward of Israel’s prosperity and safety. “A successful democratic statesman,” Irving Kristol wrote in 2001, “is one whose tenure in office...

    With four minutes to go, Boris Johnson ran in. I was already concerned — maybe more concerned than Boris. It was an awards ceremony at the Hilton, Park Lane, in London. The room was packed with financial people in bow ties. It was a couple of years before Johnson became mayor of London. At this point he was a back-bench Conservative MP and newspaper columnist. Right now he was due to make a funny speech. In four minutes. Suddenly — BOOM. A rush of wind from an opened door, a golden mop, a heave of body and dinner jacket onto...

    With the messy Brexit process having doomed British Prime Minister Theresa May’s leadership, the person most likely to take over for her, fulfilling his lifelong ambition, is Boris Johnson, the former British foreign secretary whom President Donald Trump calls a friend. Johnson is a favorite both among Conservative members of Parliament—and the bookmakers—to succeed May, whose government he quit last year in protest over her Brexit plans. The upper-class former London mayor, a leading Brexiteer, is to his fans an eccentric, affable character who embodies the essence of British identity. To his critics, Johnson is a shameless, malleable, and gaffe-prone...

    Scott Morrison, the Australian treasurer who on Friday became his country's newest prime minister, is reported to be an evangelical Christian who voted against gay marriage. Morrison won an internal ballot, 45-40, in the Liberal party, forcing moderate Malcolm Turnbull out amid political turmoil in the country. He attends Horizon Church, a Pentecostal megachurch in Sutherland, and lists "church" as one of his interests. Nick Bryant, a journalist and expert on Australian politics, told CNN that Morrison met his future wife, Jenny, at church when he was 12 years old. Their current church is said to have close ties to...

    Under the auspices of making moves to block election interference from outside interests the government of Justin from Canada is moving to block internet content critical of Trudeau and his policies. Simultaneously and ironically, the same Canadian government is spending millions lobbying U.S. politicians in Washington DC to retain their one-sided NAFTA trade benefits. Funny that, eh?

    BEIRUT (AP) — The latest on the political crisis in Lebanon (all times local): 9:05 p.m. Lebanon’s Prime Minister Saad Hariri says his resignation was his decision, dismissing reports he was forced to quit a unity government with his rival Hezbollah militant group. Speaking Sunday in a live interview to his station Future TV, Hariri held back tears. He said his resignation was designed to “cause a positive shock” in the country, warning against Iranian interference that is, he said, ruining relations with other Arab countries. Hariri said he “can’t be the only one making concessions while the others do...

    The UK's terror threat level has been raised from severe to critical, meaning an attack is considered imminent. Prime Minister Theresa May announced the decision from Downing Street. The move means that military personnel could be deployed to support armed police officers. "It is a possibility that we cannot ignore that there a wider group of individuals linked to this attack," Mrs May said. She said that the threat level was under constant review. "The change in the threat level means there will be additional support available to the police as they work to keep us safe," she said.

    In a statement on Friday morning, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said that the US missile strike violated not only international, and added that the attack “was on the brink of military clashes with Russia.” “Instead of their much-publicized thesis about a joint fight with a common enemy, Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL], the Trump administration has proven that it will fiercely fight against the legal government of Syria,” Medvedev wrote on his Facebook page. Ealier in the day, the Kremlin released a statement according to which "President Putin views the U.S. strikes on Syria as aggression against a sovereign...

    A poll released Tuesday found Canadians disenchanted with liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, whose approval ratings have fallen to their lowest since he assumed the nation’s highest office. The Forum Poll™, a public opinion firm, released their numbers while Trudeau was visiting western Calgary. Having called for “phasing out” oil sands from the nation’s economy, Calgarians greeted Trudeau with loud boos and, in some instances, barely managed to let Trudeau answer their barbed questions. Forum found that 48 percent of Canadians approve of the job Trudeau is doing as Prime Minister, the first time his approval has crossed the 50...
