Interview FiveThe interview room in Finglas Garda Station is not a nice place to be at the best of times. It is small, stuffy and not designed for more than three people to use comfortably for any length of time. By 2.30pm on May 25th last year all five of its occupants were feeling stressed. Among them was a 13-year-old boy who had been answering questions for nearly ten hours over two days. His mother, who in the first interview had sat beside the boy holding his hand, had moved her chair further away. She appeared to become more distressed by every new question put to her son. The boy’s solicitor who had remained silent for most of the process, had begun to clash with the interviewing gardaí more frequently over their questioning. For detectives Donal Daly and his colleague Damien Gannon, the stress came from the knowledge that they had only a few more hours to get the boy, who would later become known to the public as Boy B, to reveal how 14-year-old Ana Kriégel had … [Read more...] about Ana Kriegel murder trial: The complete story

Jeremy Hunt is almost invariably described as “thoroughly nice” or a “decent chap” by fellow MPs and people in government who have worked closely with him. One of his former employees at his publishing business recalls him as an “affable lummox”, but this genial disposition has given some Conservative colleagues the jitters about supporting him in the leadership race, wondering if he lacks the ruthlessness to do well in No 10. Softly spoken and rarely riled, Hunt does not have a reputation as a machiavellian operator like Boris Johnson and Michael Gove. To some of his rivals, the foreign secretary is a worrying repetition of what has gone before, a managerial politician in an age tending towards populism. They are also unsure what he believes in, citing a deleted tweet by the former Tory peer Andrew Cooper that Hunt’s conversion from remainer to hard Brexiter made him an “unprincipled windsock”. Theresa-in-trousers (Tit) is the … [Read more...] about Jeremy Hunt: ‘affable lummox’ or cool operator?
MICHAEL Buble's Instagram account uploaded a snap of someone's BALLS in a series of bizzare posts. Despite fans alerting the star to the alleged hack, the photographs remained live for half an hour. One showed a woman performing a sex act on a man, with the caption: "Thank you Michael, very cool" and a link to a video. Another showed an orangutan on a bike chasing after a little girl. The monkey's face was covered with a human cut-out. Worried fans commented on the singer's post. One said: "RIP Michael Buble's account." Someone else wrote: "Ooh no this is so rude. Why hack him? This is obviously not his pages vibe #nolikesgiven." Within 30 minutes the pictures were removed from Michael's page. At the same time, his profile picture mysteriously disappeared - but there was no mention made of the presumed hack. The Canadian crooner has 2.1million followers on Instagram. Father-of-three Michael has been sharing updates from his world tour online. He last performed in Winnipeg, Canada, … [Read more...] about Michael Buble’s Instagram account uploads snap of someone’s BALLS as fans alert star to ‘hack’
