This Saturday’s Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool should be a cracker. The semi-finals produced an astonishing glut of goals and given the array of attacking talent that’ll be on show in Kiev, the final is unlikely to be a soporific 0-0 draw.
The suggestion by the National Police Chiefs’ Council that the UK should arm all rural Police Officers is wrong. We actually need to arm EVERY Police Officer in the UK in the face of rising violent crime and Jihadist attacks.
The United States, as many observers have noted, appears to be undergoing an historic process of “strategic decline”. In order to stave off deterioration in its political and economic power, the US is resorting to greater dependence on militarism and aggression.
Even though I have been on a diet now for nine months I truly believed I would be eating a large slice of pie yesterday, humble pie that is!
On the very hour of the US opening its embassy in Jerusalem, hundreds of unarmed Palestinian civilians, including children, were being slaughtered by Israeli snipers.
The prospect of German, French and British companies being hit with US sanctions in the wake of Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iran Deal carries with it an element of poetic justice.
I don’t agree with torture under any circumstances but please could someone explain why my Government has made a grovelling apology to Abdel Hakim Belhaj and his wife Fatima Boudchar and given them half a million pounds of taxpayers’ money for what happened to them in Libya under Gadaffi!
We’re now just a month away from the start of a magnificent festival of football, otherwise known as the World Cup in Russia. England won’t be on many people’s shortlist of potential winners, but how will Gareth Southgate’s men fare?
US President Donald Trump has torn up yet another international treaty this week and pushed the world to the brink of more war in the Middle East – all on the back of absurd anti-Iran claims.
If major oil companies keep postponing the necessary investments, the next "huge supply shock" may bring the oil price up to $300 per barrel. It's not a fringe theory. It's the forecast of a legendary hedge fund manager.
I love virtue signalling Sadiq Khan. He is just the gift that keeps on giving.
When journalism crosses the line from an analysis, even polemic, into incitement – and worse, incitement against other journalists - it marks a serious and sinister degeneration. It also says much about the morals and ethics of a media organization that would countenance publishing such material.
'It's 1938 all over again'. 'X, Y, Z, (insert name of latest Official Bad Guy ) is the New Hitler' 'Appeasement won't work- we have to take action!'
Yesterday was the eleventh anniversary of the disappearance in Portugal of Little Maddie McCann and her mum, Kate, marked the occasion by reading out a poem at a gathering of some 70 people in her home village.
To have been in ‘democratic’ Britain for the past eight weeks has been quite an educational experience.
Benjamin Netanyahu’s animus towards Iran has long been a driving obsession, occupying his mind before his goes to bed at night and when he wakes up in the morning.
Theresa May has given Sajid Javid the top job at the Home Office? But I wouldn’t give this incompetent berk a job at Homebase.
If the UK wants to remain relevant and important it is time for our politicians to take some harsh lessons from Macron and even Kim Jong-Un.
Despite all his flaws and aggressive rhetoric, it can be argued that Donald Trump's foreign policy is perfect for the Russian economy. Sanctions against Russia are useless if the oil price is high, and Trump is doing his best to push the price higher.
All the handshakes, hugs and smooching between Trump and Macron this week made for cringing viewing. Not because two males were being cordial and affectionate.
