Up to 1,000 retired soldiers in their 60s and 70s face a police witch-hunt some 40 years after they battled terrorism in Northern Ireland. MPs and military chiefs last night condemned the 'disgraceful' decision by the Police Service of Northern Ireland to re-examine every single British Army killing during the Troubles. Its taxpayer-funded Legacy Investigation Branch is to look at 238 'fatal incidents' involving the Army in Ulster, which led to 302 deaths. It will mean UK veterans being investigated as potential murder or manslaughter suspects over actions they took decades ago at the height of the IRA's terrorist campaign.

It sounds more like a threat than a promise, but this rather gritty Parisian banlieue – the subject of several billion euros’ worth of regeneration investment – is Hamon’s home ground. One of seven candidates in the first round of the Socialist party’s (PS) primary election to choose a presidential candidateon Sunday, Hamon, 49, was considered an outsider only a fortnight ago, but is fast gaining ground. To some, he is the French Bernie Sanders or Jeremy Corbyn – albeit a considerably younger version. Hamon’s anti-capitalist programme includes a “universal wage” (a form of basic … [Read more...] about French Socialists in hunt for the candidate with a populist touch to challenge Le Pen
