    LIZ Truss is not so much running a Government as a political shark tank. So many rival factions are circling that her chances of creating the stability she needs to govern are vanishingly small. 2Liz Truss is not so much running a Government as a political shark tankCredit: Getty The new PM had no time to recover from her disastrously presented economic plans before being pitched into the pantomime of the party conference season. Then the display of open warfare in Birmingham, even among her Cabinet colleagues, left her seriously wounded. Mutinous Tory rebels are even plotting with Labour to kill off potential welfare cuts. And leadership wannabes who scent blood in the water are poised to strike at the first chance.

    Former President Donald Trump brought up the charged abortion issue during his first meeting with former British Prime Minister Theresa May – bringing up the 'rape' of a hypothetical daughter, according to a new book. The incident presumably took place in 2017 when May came to Washington as the first world leader to meet Trump in another demonstration of the 'special relationship' between the two countries. Former President Donald Trump asked former British PM Theresa May to imagine 'if some animals with tattoos raped your daughter and she got pregnant?' according to a new book At some point Trump, who took office after making a slew of controversial comments on the campaing trail, observed to the British PM: 'Some people are pro-life, some people are pro-choice,' according to the new book Confidence Man by Maggie Haberman of the New York Times. 'Imagine if some animals with tattoos raped your daughter and she got pregnant?' Trump reportedly asked her, according to an account in the Washington Post.  Continuing, he pointed to his vice president, Mike Pence, who had long enjoyed evangelical...
    Donald Trump's bombshell accusation that Britain spied on him threatened the special relationship between the UK and the USA, it has been revealed. The baseless allegation by the former president in March 2017 even led to a rethink of how to two countries interacted with each other. After the brazen statements from the president, intelligence agencies on both sides of the pond were left scrambling to contain the fallout.  In the UK, GCHQ issued an extraordinary rejection of the claims, branding them 'utter nonsense' as it broke with tradition to deny them on-the-record. Meanwhile, across the Atlantic, officials from the American intelligence community gave their backing to British counterparts and even offered to testify it was 'total BS'. Despite this support behind the scenes, Theresa May, who was Prime Minister at the time, said it caused the UK to 'start to think about the relationships' and the assumption it would be 'smooth-running'. The special relationship between the UK and the USA was strained when Donald Trump accused British spies of wiretapping him. Here he is pictured with Theresa May, who...

    Republican U.S. Rep. Jeff Fortenberry resigned on Saturday afternoon having faced growing pressure from congressional leaders and Nebraska´s GOP governor to step down after a California jury found him guilty of lying to federal authorities about an illegal $30,000 campaign donation from a Nigerian billionaire.

The Prime Minister "got a real grilling, but overall solid support" as she made her case to Conservative lawmakers, a separate pro-May MP told CNN.

    U.K. Conservative MP and former Prime Minister Theresa May slammed Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday over a report surrounding parties that were held at the prime minister’s residence in 2020 while the United Kingdom was in lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic. “The Covid regulations impose significant restrictions on the freedoms of members of the public,” said May during a session of the House of Commons. “They had a right to expect their prime minister to have read the rules, to understand the meaning of the rules and indeed those around him to have done so too and to set an example in following those rules.” “What the Gray report does show, is that Number 10 Downing Street was not observing the regulations they had imposed on members of the public,” she continued. “So either my right honorable friend had not read the rules or didn’t understand what they meant and others around him, or they didn’t think the rules applied to Number 10. Which was it?” Johnson apologized for the parties and pledged change to 10 Downing Street, which...

    ITALY got their hands on the Euro 2020 trophy with victory over England in the final to extend their outrageous unbeaten run. Roberto Mancini's side were considered dark horses for the tournament having failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. 8Italy won the Euro 2020 crown as they extended their unbeaten run to 34 gamesCredit: AP 8Italy last lost during a 1-0 Nations League defeat against Portugal in September 2018Credit: Getty But Italy were always likely to go deep into the Euros - having not lost a game of football in THREE years. Looking to bounce back from the disappointment of failing to qualify for Russia, Mancini began his rebuild in the Nations League. But Italy lost their second game in Group C - slipping to a 1-0 defeat away to Portugal thanks to Andre Silva's second-half winner. Incredibly, the Italians are unbeaten since then - currently on a 34-GAME unbeaten streak, including their Euro success. The world was a very different place in 2018 - it's actually incredible how much has changed in 36 short months....
    THERESA Balboa appeared in court in a prison jumpsuit for the first time since she was charged with the murder of her partner's five-year-old son. Balboa, who was seen in handcuffs on Monday morning, previously helped in the search for her partner Dalton's son before being accused of killing the five-year-old. 3Balboa was seen in a jumpsuit wearing handcuffsCredit: ABC13 3Samuel's little body was found stuffed in a bin and wrapped in plastic in a motelCredit: ABC13 The 29-year-old was initially charged with evidence tampering after allegedly wrapping his tiny body in plastic bags and duct tape in a motel - with an alleged plan to take him to Louisiana. The Harris County District Attorney's Office confirmed that the capital murder felony was added on Thursday. On Monday, Balboa walked into the courtroom without representation and left without a bond amount. While inside, a judge found probable cause to hit her with the new charge.

    Theresa Balboa has been charged with capital murder just over a month after police found the decomposing body of her boyfriend's five-year-son in the trashcan of her motel room. The Harris County District Attorney's Office had initially charged the 29-year-old with tampering with evidence after Samuel Olson's body was found in her Best Western motel room, in Jasper, Texas, on June 1. The autopsy report found Samuel died from 'homicidal violence with blunt head trauma.'  On Thursday, Balboa, who has been in custody since her June 1 arrest, was charged in Harris County with capital murder of a child under 10, according to court records.  The charges came after investigators recovered an unspecified weapon that suspected had been used to kill Olson.  The remains of the little boy are thought to have been kept hidden for around two weeks after he died, including in a bathtub, before Balboa reported him missing.    She was arrested after a tip-off to cops when she was allegedly seen carrying a foul-smelling plastic bin containing the child's corpse into the room.  Theresa Balboa has been...
    HOUSTON (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – Prosecutors on Thursday, July 8 charged a woman with capital murder in the death of a 5-year-old Houston boy she had been caring for and whose body was allegedly kept in a storage unit before being discovered in an East Texas motel. Theresa Balboa, 29, previously was arrested and charged with tampering with evidence, a human corpse, in the death of Samuel Olson, whose father Balboa was dating. (credit: Houston Police Department/Harris County Jail) Samuel’s cause of death was ruled a homicide, but the Harris County District Attorney’s Office had waited to charge Balboa with capital murder until investigating how he was killed. Court documents allege Balboa hit the boy “with a blunt object,” but did not provide additional details. Prosecutors previously said they had been testing a possible murder weapon. Robert Scott, Balboa’s attorney, did not immediately return a call or email seeking comment. Samuel had been living with Balboa since April 30, which was the last day he was seen at school. Authorities haven’t said why Samuel had been staying with Balboa instead of his...
    As Britain’s comedy prime minister Boris Johnson continues to make a fool of himself and his country at the G7 summit, his predecessor Theresa May has made a parliamentary intervention to show us how it should be done.

Lots of people will be eating their words at this point — including me. Heaven knows how many pieces I wrote during her term in office declaring that Theresa May was, by some margin, the worst prime minister in British history, but here are a few: Theresa May’s Useless Conservatives Are Screwing Up Brexit; Theresa May Is Toast; and, my personal favourite, Better A Cocker Spaniel as Prime Minister Than Theresa May. Her attack on the government’s disastrous Covid policy is absolutely spot on, however, and makes you wish that she were currently in charge rather than the useless globalist puppet Johnson. She said: I think there are some facts the Government needs to be up...
    HOUSTON (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — A woman arrested in connection with the death of a 5-year-old Houston boy whose body authorities say was kept hidden in a storage unit before being discovered in a tote bag at an East Texas motel will likely face additional charges in the case, a prosecutor said Monday.

    Donald Trump once said he would pay £100,000 not to hear Theresa May speak after learning what she was paid to make corporate appearances, Piers Morgan has claimed. The broadcaster said the former US president was shocked at hearing that she was paid more than £100,000 on the lecture circuit. ‘When I informed Donald Trump just before the last US election that Mrs May gets paid more than £100,000 a pop for speeches, he exploded into mocking laughter and spluttered: “Are you kidding me? I’d pay £100,000 not to hear her talk!”’ Morgan wrote in The Spectator.

    THE ROW over the cost of renovating Boris Johnson's Downing Street flat continues - but the PM insists he paid for the decorations himself. Following allegations Mr Johnson used Tory donor money, a profile on his fiancee Carrie Symonds suggests how previous tenant Theresa May's decor was labelled a "John Lewis nightmare". 2Boris and Carrie reportedly decided to redecorate their flat in 11 Downing Street when they moved inCredit: Mark Pain Photography What is the Boris Johnson 'John Lewis nightmare'? A controversial update of the decor in the Prime Minister's flat was reportedly inspired by a desire to get rid of the "John Lewis furniture nightmare" left over by Theresa May.

    BRITS were misled about the cost of the Government’s net zero carbon emissions target by 2050 after Whitehall officials played down the estimated £70billion annual hit. In bombshell emails released after a two-year FOI battle, Treasury civil servants admitted to then-Chancellor Philip Hammond that the cost of going green would likely be £20billion a year more than the £50billion figure they were told to champion publicly. 3Brits were misled over the cost of Theresa May's carbon-neutral targetCredit: PA:Press Association 3Emails between Philip Hammond and his aides revealed the figure to be £20billion higher than expectedCredit: Darren Fletcher - The Sun Ex-PM Theresa May legally committed the UK to Net Zero by 2050 before Boris Johnson took over in 2019 - meaning any harmful gases and emissions will have be offset. Internal government modelling from the Department for Business showed it would be 40 per cent higher - reaching £1.275trillion by 2050.

    Philip Hammond was one of Theresa May’s closest political allies in her time as Prime Minister Theresa May confused “stubbornness with heroism” while trying to pass her doomed Brexit deal in Parliament, Philip Hammond has said. In a damning interview about his former boss, Lord Hammond said Mrs May had a “romantic notion of charging into the valley even though you know you’re going down to certain defeat” as she tried to pass her Brexit agreement amid hostility from her own party. The former Chancellor recalled how Mrs May battled Tory Brexiteers, who voted her agreement down in successive rounds of parliamentary votes, ultimately forcing her resignation. “She sometimes confused stubbornness with heroism,” he said. In an interview with UK in a Changing Europe, a think tank, Lord Hammond accused Mrs May of launching what was “almost a coup” against her Remain-leaning Cabinet ministers in her 2016 Conservative Party Conference speech. During that speech, the Prime Minister ruled out a Norway or Switzerland-style Brexit, committing to leave with a bespoke new deal – what Lord Hammond says was “Brexit...
    THERESA May today launched a blistering attack on Jeremy Corbyn in her make or break conference speech - warning that Tories have a “duty” to keep him out of power.

"What has it come to when Jewish families today seriously discuss where they should go if Jeremy Corby becomes Prime Minister? "That is what Jeremy Corbyn has done to the Labour party. It is our duty, in this Conservative party, to make sure he can never do it to our country." The crucial address is a last-ditch bid to unite her bitterly divided party and see off threats to her leadership from Boris Johnson. Starting her speech, the PM said:...
    THERE are two golden rules in the Conservative Party. No1: Don’t do blue on blue. No2: Don’t do blue on blue.

    LONDON (AP) — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson welcomed the start of a new U.K.-U.S. chapter on Wednesday under incoming U.S. President Joe Biden, even as his predecessor Theresa May accused Johnson of “abandoning” the U.K.’s moral leadership in the world during the tumultuous Trump era. May, who resigned in 2019 amid turmoil over Brexit, has been critical of Johnson’s handling of Britain’s exit from the European Union. The open criticism is unusual because both prime ministers represent the Conservative Party. Writing in the Daily Mail newspaper, May slammed Johnson’s threat last year to breach the legally binding Brexit treaty he had signed with the EU, and his decision to abandon a commitment to spending 0.7% of Britain’s GDP on foreign aid. May said “to lead we must live up to our values.” “Threatening to break international law by going back on a treaty we had just signed and abandoning our position of global moral leadership as the only major economy to meet both the 2% defence spending target and the 0.7% international aid target were not actions which, in...
    Theresa May said Boris Johnson had failed to live up to “our values” Theresa May has accused Boris Johnson of surrendering Britain’s “global moral leadership” in her most outspoken attack to date on her successor. The former prime minister claimed Mr Johnson had failed to live up to “our values” by threatening to break international law in Brexit negotiations and suspending commitments on foreign aid spending. Mrs May has previously criticised Mr Johnson’s Government during debates in the House of Commons, but in an article to mark Joe Biden’s inauguration as US President she is far more personal in her attack. Writing in the Daily Mail, Mrs May said Mr Johnson’s decisions had not “raised our credibility in the eyes of the world”. The article is likely to be seen as a score-settling exercise by Mrs May, who had an uneasy relationship with Mr Johnson during her time in Downing Street. Mr Johnson played a key role in Mrs May’s downfall when he resigned as foreign secretary in July 2018 after saying he could not support the Brexit...
    THERESA May took a fresh swipe at Boris Johnson last night - accusing him of "abandoning" Britain's "moral leadership".  In some of her toughest criticism yet of her predecessor, she slammed him for threatening to tear up the Brexit withdrawal deal last year and tearing up Britain's aid budget. 3Theresa May scalded the Prime Minister saying that he was part of a "boys club of leaders" If Britain is to continue to have a key role on the world stage and really deliver a "Global Britain" as the PM has promised, he must live up to its "values", she stressed. In an article for the Daily Mail as President Biden is sworn into office today, she calls on the PM to remember it is our "actions that count" and begged him to "do nothing which signals a retreat from our global commitments. "She blasted a boys club of world leaders - where "a few strongmen face off against each other" and demanded leaders bring people together "in a common cause" instead.

    THERESA May claimed her own Brexit deal was “better” than Boris Johnson’s in an extraordinary Commons clash today. The former PM said she was voting for his deal “in the national interest” – a dig at Tory colleagues who had repeatedly rebelled against her Brexit plans. ⚠️ Read our Brexit live blog for the latest news & updates HOC/JESSICA TAYLOR 3 Theresa May sits behind Boris Johnson during the Brexit deal debate But she said the Government needed to enter fresh talks with the EU to resolve issues facing the UK’s financial services sector, which were left out of the PM’s Brexit deal. Mrs May, who wore a mask for much of today’s Commons debate, looked downcast as she sat on the Tory benches behind her successor. And when she stood up to speak she let her feelings be known. The former PM launched a blistering attack on Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer and his colleagues for failing to back her own Brexit deal. He had earlier claimed Mr Johnson’s deal was “thin” and had “many flaws”. This...
    US President Donald Trump 'bullied' and 'mansplained' to exasperated former-Prime Minister Theresa May in a series of strained meetings, sources claim.  One official even feared Mrs May would either 'scream or start crying' over her frustration at Mr Trump's stubbornness during a call about the US government's response to the Salisbury poisonings. A series of meetings - details of the notes of which were leaked and verified by various officials - outline the strain put on the so-called US-UK 'special relationship' after the former-PM became the first foreign leader Mr Trump hosted in his White House.

    A paedophile former University of Cambridge research fellow who sent ex-prime minister Theresa May a hoax package containing a white powder, intended to appear as poison, has been jailed. On April 5th, 2018, staff at a postal sorting office in East London alerted police after handling a suspicious package addressed to “Theresa May, c/o The Nazi Party”. It was found to contain a graphic cartoon of the decapitated prime minister, as well as white powder later found to be harmless. The incident occurred just one month after the poisoning of former Russian spy and double agent for the British, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter Yulia with the nerve agent Novichok. A policeman was also taken ill after coming into contact with the stricken pair as they sat on a bench in Salisbury city centre. Then-Prime Minister May had said that it was highly likely that Russian President Vladimir Putin was behind the attack on British soil. The package also included a picture of Russian ex-spy Alexander Litvinenko, according to the BBC. Litvinenko had been poisoned with radioactive polonium 210 in London...

The US President’s former right-hand man Steve Bannon has lifted the lid on excruciating White House meetings with the ex-PM where the Americans felt Mrs May saw "Brexit as a problem to be overcome" rather than a brilliant opportunity. 2Theresa May turned down a rapid trade deal with the US, a new book claimsCredit: AFP Mr Bannon was serving as White House adviser during her visit to Washington in early 2017 where she was snapped holding hands with Mr Trump in the first weeks of his presidency.

    Theresa May David Frost has “no proven expertise in national security”, Theresa May has said in a blistering attack on Number 10’s Whitehall shake-up. The former Prime Minister made her most adversarial appearance in the Commons since she became a backbencher, criticising the government’s decision to remove its most senior civil servant. Mr Frost, currently the UK’s chief Brexit negotiator, will replace Sir Mark Sedwill as National Security Adviser – the first political appointee to the role since its creation in 2010. Speaking in the Commons, Mrs May, who appointed Sir Mark to the role, described the “expert independent advice” she received from national security advisers in the nine years she spent on the national security council, first as Home Secretary then as Prime Minister. She said “On Saturday [Michael Gove] said: ‘We must be able to promote those with proven expertise.’ “Why then is the new national security adviser a political appointee with no proven expertise in national security?” Mrs May’s attack on the government will be seen as a personal defence of one of her closest allies...
    Donald Trump’s verbal assaults on Theresa May were described by a source with knowledge as “near-sadistic”. – Kenneth Kawamoto Donald Trump regularly “bullied and humiliated” Theresa May on the phone, saying she was “spineless” on Brexit, one of the journalists who broke the Watergate scandal has claimed. The US president attacked the then British prime minister as “a fool” for her pro-Remain stance on the European Union, ties with Nato and other issues the pair disagreed on, Carl Bernstein reported for CNN. “He’d get agitated about something with Theresa May, then he’d get nasty with her on the phone call,” wrote Mr Bernstein, quoting a source who described the verbal assaults as “near-sadistic”. “It’s the same interaction in every setting with just no filter applied,” the source said. Mr Trump’s relationship with Mrs May was notoriously fraught, with both taking very different approaches to issues which once bonded the two countries. Observers described the special relationship during the period Mrs May served as premier as arguably at its lowest point since the Suez Crisis of 1956. Theresa May takes...
    President Donald Trump's private calls with Russian President Vladimir Putin sometimes have the tone of 'two guys in a steam bath,' according a bombshell account that portrays Trump as bending over backward to win the strongman's approval. Putin 'just outplays' Trump during their one-on-one interactions, according to a CNN report published Monday by legendary Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein. During those calls and others with foreign leaders, Trump regularly tries to tout his own wealth and success, according to the report. At the same time, with Putin he routinely characterizes his predecessors as 'imbeciles' and weaklings.' President Donald Trump characterized his predecessors as 'imbeciles' and weaklings' during private calls with Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to a new report by Watergate journalist Carl Bernstein The revelations about the calls are contained in a deeply sourced – though thinly quoted – account by legendary Watergate journalist Carl Bernstein.  Trump won office in 2016 despite media criticism of his repeated praise for Putin, even as Russia was revealed by U.S. intelligence to be orchestrating an election interference and hacking campaign.
