Cowering British suspect druglord Andrew Deamer climbs down from his attic bolt-hole after being busted in a dramatic 6am raid by Colombian forces. Wearing shorts and T-shirt, he had darted into the secret hideaway after realising anti-narcotics agents and army and navy troops were closing in on his remote farmhouse. Deamer, 52, was held along with his glamorous second wife Marcela Zapata, 37, in a swoop which smashed a £354million drugs ring. The raid was in Rionegro, 20 miles from Medellin and in the heartlands where cocaine king Pablo Escobar once ruled. Deamer had worked his way into the confidence of the vicious cartels and one former US drugs enforcer – who estimated the Brit could be involved in drugs worth £1.2billion – said: “He put his head into the lion’s mouth.” Colombia’s Attorney General’s office allege Deamer is behind tons of cocaine sent to the UK, Europe and the US. He is suspected of having a string of … [Read more...] about British ‘druglord’ clambers from Colombian attic bolt-hole in dramatic 6am raid

Gotham (C) Fox Aged four, I was parading around a French campsite in my Superman pyjamas with delusions of grandeur and a smile on my face. I’m sure I’m not the only one but my childhood ambition, without a doubt, was to be a superhero. In all honesty, now at the ripe old age of 24, I still wouldn’t down the chance to tug a pair of underpants over my trousers, stuff a blanket down the back of my shirt and go fly off to save the world. But with no radioactive spiders nearby, nor the knowhow to build myself a super suit, I’m left to ramble about superheroes on the internet instead - it’s a super power of sorts, I suppose. So, without further ado, it’s a case of all eyes … [Read more...] about Ten of our favourite superhero TV shows from Arrow to My Hero
Donald Trump is spending the week in Florida recharging the batteries at Mar-a-Lago, and who could begrudge him a rare golfing break? The last few days have been action-packed even for him. Many leaders of the free world would be content with either a) celebrating a gesture bombing raid on Syria as “mission accomplished”, in absolute ignorance of that phrase’s resonance; b) repeatedly calling the former FBI director he sacked a “slimeball”; c) humiliating his UN ambassador by letting her announce that new sanctions against Russia were imminent, and reneging on that within hours; or d) implying that the Feds’ raid on his lawyer’s office is up there with Pearl Harbour in terms of days that forever live in infamy, by identifying it as “an attack on our country”. For Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt, any of the above might have sated the appetite for traditional statesmanship. For the titan who with God’s … [Read more...] about Is it me or is Donald Trump’s administration becoming less like The Sopranos and more like Breaking Bad?
Courtrooms, corruption, and conspiracies – the curious case of high-profile lawyer Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump, and Fox news presenter Sean Hannity sounds more like a televised drama series than real life. Monday in Manhattan, New York, saw perhaps the most surprising twist yet: Cohen’s lawyer Stephen Ryan admitted that Cohen’s previously ‘mysterious’ third client was Hannity. The story did not stop there: the controversial political pundit immediately hit back at Cohen’s claims, saying that Trump’s attorney – who is currently at the centre of a federal investigation – had never represented him. “I never gave him a retainer, never paid any fees,” Hannity said on his radio show. “I may have handed him $10 once. I requested attorney-client privilege with him, and assumed our conversations would be confidential, but they have never involved any matter with him and any third party.” … [Read more...] about Sean Hannity accused of getting his legal strategy from Saul Goodman
