    BOOK OF THE WEEK  A WAITER IN PARIS by Edward Chisholm (Monoray £16.99, 384pp)  Dumped by his French girlfriend, down to his last few coins, and generally ‘worse off than when I started at university’, at least Edward Chisholm is in Paris.  Unfortunately, the pretty city of boulevards, museums and manicured parks exists only in guidebooks — and in any event it’s quite out of reach to the ‘underpaid and underfed slaves’ who make up the actual local population.  Edward Chisholm describes his role as a waiter in Paris, in his new book. He details how he was treated by his employees, colleagues and customers  A Waiter In Paris is a searing account of what life is really like ‘at the bottom of the food chain’, and Chisholm’s prose positively delights in describing the graffiti, sodden cardboard boxes and litter-strewn pavements.  Make no mistake, the Paris of Picasso or Hemingway has gone. It is now a frontier zone full of ‘paperless’ immigrants (Chisholm is one himself), the addicted and the mentally distressed. ‘There’s a brown fog over the city,’ we are...

    Locals in Majorca have admitted they were bewildered by Hilaria Baldwin's decision to fake her Spanish past. The 36-year-old wife of Alec Baldwin was forced to confess in a rambling Instagram post she had been born in Boston and not the island of Majorca despite previously claiming to have come to America aged only 19. The influencer was also ridiculed after it emerged her mother Kathryn Hayward, who she has long described as Spanish, is in fact a fourth-generation Massachusetts resident. Spain's leading newspapers have seized on Hilaria's bizarre Spanish ancestry claims, with right-wing ABC describing them as a 'hoax' and Catalan daily La Vanguardia referencing her admission that her real name is Hillary by saying: 'Alec Baldwin's wife accused of lying about her Spanish origin and her name.' Majorcan acquaintances of the family of the Boston-born Mom Brain podcast host told DailyMail.com Tuesday that they had never met the mom-of-five. Internet sleuths were quick to uncover details about Hilaria's parents, Dr Kathryn Hayward and David Thomas, pictured, who worked in the U.S. for years before retiring to Majorca...
    As irksome as are the recent COVID restrictions imposed by New York, New Jersey, California and other states primarily run by Democrat governors, citizens should be thankful that our Founding Fathers understood and acted on the need to place clear limitations on government powers through a Bill of Rights. While anglophiles may protest that England, too, has a Bill of Rights, it is nothing like ours that was ratified in 1791. The British “Bill of Rights” predates ours by just over 100 years, but its weaknesses were manifest in the manner by which the colonists were mistreated by the Crown, notwithstanding being considered “Englishmen.” The 1689 Bill of Rights, for example, offered no real protection to colonists whose homes and businesses were invaded by British soldiers acting on order from the Crown pursuant to the infamous “Writs of Assistance.” Nor did that early Bill of Rights provide protection against severe censorship measures enforced by the Redcoats. While the English version did include words supporting citizens’ right to bear arms in self-defense, they rang hollow, as when British troops moved to...
    A mystery species of toothless pterosaur has been identified among century-old fossil collections — where its jaw fragments had been mistaken for shark fin spines.   Researchers from Portsmouth found the misclassified remains within both the the Sedgwick Museum of Cambridge and the Booth Museum in Brighton. The collections had been assembled during the peak of English phosphate mining in the Fens between 1851–1900, when miners sold fossils they found for extra money.  The fossils were excavated from within the Cambridge Greensand Member — a rock formation that dates back to the early Cenomanian, around 100 million years ago.  A mystery species of toothless pterosaur has been identified among century-old fossil collections — where its jaw fragments had been mistaken for shark fin spines. Pictured, the pterosaur jaw fragments (highlighted) among the collections of shark fin remains Although the pterosaur jaw fragments do resemble shark fin spines, they sport many subtle differences that allow the two fossils to be distinguished from each other, the researchers explained.  'One such feature are tiny little holes where nerves come to the surface and are used for...
    A haul of rare gold coins unearthed in a field by a metal detectorist could be one of the earliest depictions of the English people. One of the roughly 1,500-year-old Anglo-Saxon pennies shows a figure brandishing what appears to be a trident. It is thought the minted gold image could be one of the earliest representations of the founding fathers of what would later become England. Dated from around 640AD, the two coins feature an archaic Christian cross on one side and one has a warrior wearing a studded collar and holding what looks like a pronged weapon. A haul of rare gold coins unearthed in a field near Chelmsford, Essex by a metal detectorist could be one of the earliest depictions of the English people Chris Kutler, who discovered the ancient gold pieces three years ago, believes this could be an image of an ancestor of the elite rulers who created the coin as a way to enforce their authority on their Celtic subjects. The 57-year-old also found two similar other coins in the same field near Chelmsford...

    Och aye! Much of the Scottish-language version of Wikipedia is actually written by an American who doesn’t even speak the language — resulting in comically-bad entries that read like they came from Groundskeeper Willie on “The Simpsons,” according to a new report. The North Carolina-based user, who goes by the handle AmaryllisGardener, has composed more than 23,000 articles and done at least 200,000 edits on the Scots Wikipedia using bogus phrases meant to sound Scottish, according to Vice. In a description of the movie “Million Dollar Baby,” for example, the user writes “This film is aboot an unnerappreciatit boxin trainer” and in an entry about the Human Development Index, the person writes it’s “a composite statistic o life expectancy.” The language is repeated in thousands of articles because the person is an administrator on the site — and ultimately has control over what stays on it, the outlet reported. “I find it insulting that you would pass this off as our native language which you clearly don’t speak,” a Reddit user, who goes by the handle u/Ultach, wrote after...
    Three people have been stabbed to death and a number of others seriously injured while sitting in a park in Reading, England. OK – so when do the protests start? When does outraged Britain take to the streets with its shouty placards and its angry chants to send a signal to the UK government that enough is enough and that something needs to change fast so that this kind of outrage never happens again? My guess is somewhere between ‘ain’t gonna happen’ and ‘never’. Am I the only one who finds this puzzling? Here’s what puzzles me: George Floyd, the fine gentleman killed by police in Minneapolis no doubt had many excellent qualities and certainly did not deserve to die. But was his terrible murder really any less disgusting, outrageous or unjust than say, those of the three thirtysomething men slashed about the throat while drinking beer in a park one tranquil Sunday evening? My suggestion would be: probably not. But the left-liberal Establishment which currently sets the political and social agenda in Britain (and beyond) would appear to disagree....
    Burnley FC captain Ben Mee says the people who flew a "White Lives Matter" banner over the club's game against Manchester City on Monday "need to come in the 21st Century." "I'm ashamed and embarrassed," Mee said after his side's 5-0 defeat. "It's not what we are about at all." Mee added in a later interview with BBC Radio 5 Live: "Fans like that don't deserve to be around football." Burnley supporter Jake Hepple claimed responsibility for flying the offensive banner, according to The Mirror. "I'd like to take this time to apologise .. TO ABSOLUTELY F------  NOBODY!"
