The former presidential candidate spoke out while touring British radio studios with her daughter Chelsea promoting their new book 'Gutsy Women'. The BBC has been accused of 'rolling out the red carpet' for Mrs Clinton who herself has been accused of 'interfering' in British politics during the general election campaign. The report by the Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC) was sent to the Prime Minister for approval on October 17 … [Read more...] about Hillary Clinton slams ‘shameful’ delay in release of report probing Russian interference in British politics saying ‘people deserve to know’ its findings BEFORE the election

The US moved to assert its leadership and save the UN climate talks in Copenhagen from collapse today, saying it was ready to support a $100bn (£62bn) fund to shield poor countries from the ravages of climate change. But speaking at the conference, Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, warned developing countries that the finances would only flow if their leaders signed up to a strong global warming deal at the summit. "The US is prepared to work with other countries to jointly mobilise $100bn a year by 2020," Clinton told a press conference on a day that began with reports that the summit's Danish hosts had given up hope of reaching a deal.

There is nothing Donald Trump loves more than a great superlative. He builds the tallest hotels. He is the most successful businessman. His inaugural crowds were the biggest ever. None of these claims are remotely true, no matter how exaggerated the adjective nor how emphatic the delivery. But after his alleged blabbing of highly classified intelligence to the Russians, Trump can now lay claim to the greatest superlative of any sitting president: he is the biggest bozo of them all. Bigger than the Bush who thought invading Iraq would be easy. Bigger than the biggest president who got stuck in his bathtub. Trump is the most unpatriotically reckless, most flamboyantly ignorant, most ludicrously incompetent of them all. Never mind The Apprentice, he’s actually The Biggest Loser. There are only a few explanations for why the 45th president of the United States would reveal the most sensitive intel about Isis capabilities to one of the least trustworthy countries on the planet. The … [Read more...] about Bragging about our intel to Russia? Trump is too needy to be president
Nigel Farage claimed he had killed off a second referendum The leader of the Brexit party declared his party would not stand candidates in the 317 seats won by the Conservatives in 2017. The exact impact is still a matter of debate, but it is almost certainly the most significant electoral boost the Tories have had in the campaign so far. In a speech in Hartlepool (full text here), Farage claimed his decision meant a “leave alliance” was now in operation: I have got no great love for the Conservative party at all. But I can see right now that by giving Boris half a chance, by keeping him honest and holding him to account by getting people in, and by stopping the fanatics in the Liberal Democrats who’d sign us up to everything, wouldn’t they, the United States of Europe, European army, you name it, I mean they even want to revoke the result of the referendum. No, I think our action … prevents a second referendum from happening and that to me I think right … [Read more...] about Andrew Sparrow’s election briefing: The best news Boris Johnson has had so far?
