    With Rep. Henry Waxman's retirement announcement, many of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's top lieutenants are abandoning ship. Waxman joins his California colleague, Rep. George Miller, and Rep. Jim Moran of Virginia as close Pelosi allies to retire after this Congress. And after last year's 2012 elections, Pelosi's leading in-house strategist Jen Crider left her office, later announcing she was working for Microsoft. Their decisions are as strong a signal as any that veteran House Democrats hold little hope of taking the House in 2014, and they probably are pessimistic about their long-term prospects for a congressional majority. Miller and...

    There have been 11 presidents of the United States since the Queen came to the throne in 1952 and she has met every one of them except Lyndon B Johnson. And while we all admire and respect the Queen, this just goes to show she has her favorites like the rest of us.

    QUEEN Elizabeth II is planning to create an underground network to extract heat from the earth's natural warmth and cut energy bills at Buckingham Palace for centuries to come. She has inspired a fashion among the super-rich for drilling boreholes at their properties as the latest "green" status symbol. Advocates include pop star Elton John, tycoon Richard Branson and billionaire Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. The Buckingham Palace system will provide a secure, free and inexhaustible energy supply from beneath the surface of the 1.6ha lake at the heart of the walled gardens. It will pump heating to the state rooms,...

    Some conservative pundits take a shotgun approach in firing away at liberals. Ann Coulter uses an Uzi. Only hours before President George W. Bush was to speak this morning in Saginaw, the right-wing author took aim Wednesday night at liberal superstars and laid down some suppressing fire for Bush. Judging by the thunderous applause in the nearly packed Temple Theatre in downtown Saginaw, each bullet hit its target. Former President Bill Clinton, John Kerry and Ted Kennedy all came within her cross-hairs as she poked holes in Democrats' criticism of the war in Iraq. And God help you if your...

    A protester dressed as Batman breached security at Buckingham Palace yesterday by scaling the perimeter wall and staging a demonstration on a ledge next to the main balcony. Despite two security reviews in the past year, Jason Hatch, 33, a member of the pressure group Fathers 4 Justice, managed to evade police and armed guards and climb on to the building. Jason Hatch climbs the ladder up on to the palace annexe After more than five and a half hours standing on the ledge 25ft above the ground, Hatch came down at 7.15pm. He clapped and waved to the crowds...
