Kirk Cameron opened up about how his new film “Lifemark” came to be, saying it’s a story about “life” and the message that adoption can be a “compassionate, beautiful, solution to a very difficult problem in our culture today.” The 51-year-old actor spoke to The Daily Wire Thursday about his new film that touches on pro-life and pro-choice issues, and said it provides proof that “the power of one choice impacts more than just one life.” A description of the movie reads: “David’s comfortable world is turned upside down when his birth mother unexpectedly reaches out to him, longing to meet the 18-year-old son she’s only held once. With the encouragement of his adoptive parents, David embarks on a journey of discovery that leads to a staggering truth from his past.” It stars Cameron, Rebecca Rogers Nelson, Raphael Ruggero, Dawn Long, Justin Sterner, Marisa Hampton and Alex Kendrick. Both Cameron and Kendrick act in the movie and are executive producers on the film.

Jeremy Kyle has come under fire after calling Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon ‘that horrible woman up north’ during Uncensored. The 57-year-old is standing in for Piers Morgan on his TalkTV show while he films in America for the summer and he certainly did not shy away from controversy on Wednesday’s episode. Joined by political commentator Marina Purkiss and broadcaster Emma Webb, the former The Jeremy Kyle Show presenter discussed the soaring cost of living – which has reached crisis point. It comes after a dire prediction stated the annual energy bill is likely to hit £4,266 for the average household in the UK. However, apparently brushing aside record-breaking inflation rates , Jeremy said: ‘I think this cost of living crisis, and this taking the electorate for granted is going to cast the Tories into the wilderness for years and my theory is that horrible woman up north is going to start. What’s her name? Nicola Sturgeon, she’ll be in power in a … [Read more...] about ‘This is why Scotland should leave the UK!’ Jeremy Kyle slammed for calling Nicola Sturgeon ‘that horrible woman up north’

Published 19 July 2013 Share close Share page Copy link About sharing The UK economy has seen a £9.9bn boost in trade and investment from hosting the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games, research suggests. A report by the government department which promotes UK businesses put new contracts, sales and foreign investment in the last year down to the Games. But the claims were met with scepticism by some economists and the Federation of Small Businesses. Government estimates put the cost of hosting the Games at £8.9bn. 'Creative accounting' Prime Minister David Cameron said "a lot of deals were done" around the time of the Olympics. The report, for the UK Trade and Investment department (UKTI), said the Olympics resulted in: £2.5bn "additional inward investment", 58% of which was outside London £5.9bn additional sales following Olympic-related promotions by the … [Read more...] about London 2012 Olympics ‘have boosted UK economy by £9.9bn’
By Ross Hawkins Published 25 July 2014 Share close Share page Copy link About sharing When this picture of Ed Miliband's battle with a bacon butty hit the news, the Labour team pulled a few faces of their own. So why is the party's leader talking about how he looks? I am not from central casting Other people look less like the animated character Wallace, he said in a speech. The comparison has long kept cartoonists in business. Getting the joke But Mr Miliband does a good line in self-deprecation in private, and he has decided to share some of that in public. You can find people who are more square-jawed, he said. More chiselled. No one argued. So no more photo ops? It's hardly the end of Labour's once legendary image-management though. Mr Miliband admitted pictures still matter. After all, he was as keen as any other politician to get his photo … [Read more...] about Ed Miliband: No more photo opportunities?
By Pippa Simm and Brian Wheeler Published 19 February 2015 Share close Share page Copy link About sharing David Cameron revealed earlier that he hasn't driven a car in four and a half years. He's not really allowed to for security reasons, you see. So when did prime ministers stop getting behind the wheel? The official government car service came into being in 1946, but it was the declaration of war in 1939 that changed ministers' travel habits for good. Before this, it was only the home secretary, who was allocated a police car, that got an official motor. And for the other ministers? Well, they had to provide their own or take public transport. But, as the country went to war, it was decided that six 20-horsepower Austin chauffeur-driven cars should be permanently at the disposal of the War Cabinet, according to Geoffrey Dudley's History of the Government Car Service.

David Cameron laid on fruit smoothies, Ken Clarke beer. Says it all about the history of the Tory party over the past 25 years, really. John Major and William Hague were lent Alan Duncan's elegant house in Gayfere Street, around the corner from the Houses of Parliament, for their HQs in 1990 and 1997. Years later, Boris Johnson was loaned a lavish £10m five-storey townhouse in Westminster by Andrew Griffith, then a Sky executive and now an MP, who became a junior minister last week. Michael Portillo, however, never recovered after installing phone lines in a house in Westminster while professing loyalty to John Major. Still, at least he's now a national treasure. In 2019, Mr Johnson was partly bankrolled by the JCB digger tycoon Anthony Bamford. Three years later, he was in a hole over "Paterson, party-gate and Pincher", but failed to stop digging.

And he wiped … [Read more...] about Dirty tricks, plots and backstabbing – why Tory leadership races are always top box office
SIR – As the debate continues over who should be the next prime minister, all we hear are arguments about whether the solution to the critical challenges facing Britain is to take more money from us or let us keep more money to cope with the rising cost of living. Nobody, however, is telling us what is being done, now, to address the problems that are threatening to bring the country to its knees. What practical action is being taken to secure our energy supplies – not to mention fix the NHS and stop uncontrolled immigration? It is high time that someone in this Government actually started governing. Thomas Le Cocq SIR – After reading Allison Pearson’s comments on gas and electricity costs (Features, August 10), I looked into my own bills. The basics of gas, electricity, water and council tax account for just over 80 per cent of my recently acquired full state pension. The problem is that, if I switch to the cheapest one-year energy deal, the cost will increase to nearly … [Read more...] about Letters: Voters are tiring of the Tories’ hot air as the energy crisis deepens
