William Hague, who famously suffered a major defeat in the 2001 election after tacking to the right, called for a cautious response to Ukip as he warned of the dangers of "quick fixes". Philip Hammond, the defence secretary, said many Ukip voters were "frustrated Conservatives". As the Tories work out their response to Ukip, which won nearly a quarter...

    Hello Lads, I don't know what sort of news coverage you're getting in the U.S, but I just thought I'd show you some pictures of London yesterday... 3 days after the terrorists struck: A Lancaster Bomber, escorted by a Spitfire and a Hurricane flies over Buckingham Palace to the Mall.

The bomb doors open, and a million poppies fall to earth to commemorate those who made the ultimate sacrifice...

What drives a parent, whether a mom or a dad, into pulling on uncomfortable grey tights, neatly tying a cape around their neck's and risking life and limb to make a point...

    Dana Milbank Washington Post Staff Writer Thursday, November 20, 2003; Page C01 LONDON, Nov. 19 -- On a day when some vulgar Britons stomped on a cutout likeness of him and burned its dismembered head, President Bush compared his experience here to that of stuntman David Blaine, who suspended himself above the River Thames for six weeks without food. "It was pointed out to me that the last noted American to visit London stayed in a glass box dangling over the Thames," Bush said Wednesday in the hall where another head of state, Charles I, was beheaded in 1649. "A...
