The Welsh escape artist performed the ‘ridiculous’ stunt for show The Seven Stupidest Things to Escape From, but Channel 4 were so appalled they never aired it.

“Putin doesn’t lie.” It was a striking claim from the defence secretary Ben Wallace yesterday morning, and one perhaps guaranteed to have you choking on your porridge. Recent history, after all, is littered with Russian lies. Two weeks after Russia invaded its neighbour, the Russian foreign minister insisted “we did not attack Ukraine ’’. It was as unbelievable as the suggestion by the two Salisbury poisoning suspects that they’d come to England’s cathedral city to see its “famous 123m spire”. And yet Wallace was trying to make an extremely valid point. “One of the lessons of the last 10 to 15 years is people have underestimated Vladimir Putin. They have ignored what he has said publicly and they have done so at their peril. He wrote in July last year what he was going to do effectively in Ukraine. People thought he was just posturing. There is a sort of phrase that often goes round that ‘Putin doesn’t lie’. Putin has said lots of threats; he often carries them … [Read more...] about Everyone keeps saying ‘Putin lies’ – but does he?

Tutt Branch and berated staff for allegedly pushing sexuality onto children on Monday, according to the South Bend Tribune . A YouTube video , seen by Newsweek, was uploaded the following day that showed the Proud Boys confronting with staff about the LGBTQ+ books that were going to be read to children.
