    The Queen gave Prince Harry a dressing down for using offensive language about her closest aide, The Mail on Sunday can reveal. The scolding came after Harry, 35, flew into a rage when the Queen's dresser and confidante Angela Kelly was unable to meet Meghan's sudden demand to visit Buckingham Palace with her hairdresser to try on a tiara that the couple had chosen for their wedding. When it was pointed out that protocol dictates an appointment must be made to access the Queen's jewels, Harry is understood to have used offensive language about Ms Kelly as he heaped pressure...

    America and the United Kingdom would be wise to let Egypt, France, and Greece take the lead in balancing a dangerous and resurgent Turkey. With Americans focused on the anarchy in Democrat-led cities, a cryptic tweet from French President Emmanuel Macron on July 20 went out relatively unnoticed. Macron tweeted he had a great discussion with “his friend” Donald Trump about Libya.Within hours, the Egyptian parliament declared they had voted unanimous support for Egyptian President Al-Sisi to send in Egyptian troops and armor in support of battered Eastern Libyan forces on their back foot due to Turkish intervention. Anyone keeping...

    Safety experts are urging the UK government to exclude American cars from any post-Brexit trade deal. They say imported vehicles should meet British safety standards for accidents with pedestrians, cyclists and children. UK PM Boris Johnson has indicated he expects cars to be included in any new transatlantic trade agreement. But safety campaigners point to a spike of pedestrian injuries and deaths in US road accidents. The increase is associated with a boom in large SUVs, which have been engineered to protect passengers but not pedestrians In the UK and Europe, cars are designed to minimise harm to people on...

    The chances of Britain reaching a rapid post-Brexit trade agreement with the US are fast fading, with British officials conceding that a deal will not be struck ahead of Novembers presidential election. Last year, the Government said it believed agreement could be reached by July 2020, but that target is about to be missed because of the coronavirus pandemic and wrangling over such issues as the import of American agricultural products. The setback coincides with the apparent stalemate in negotiations with Brussels over a trade deal with the EU. Although a third round of UK-US talks will begin via online...

    The Independent Security Committee has said that it saw no evidence of Russian interference in the 2016 Brexit referendum. The crux of the report, however, criticised the government for failing to task intelligence agencies to look into the possibility, advising the Boris Johnson administration to undertake a review a claim the government has rejected. On Tuesday, the ISC, the body responsible for the oversight of the UKs intelligence community, released its report on Russian interference in Britains democratic processes. In the case study on the EU referendum, the authors criticised the narrow coverage given to the possibility of Russian...

    The UK has suspended an extradition treaty with Hong Kong following the imposition of controversial new security laws on the territory by China. Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab announced the "necessary and proportionate" measure in a statement to the House of Commons on Monday. The UK will also extend to Hong Kong the arms embargo it has applied to mainland China since 1989, Mr Raab said. "The extension of this embargo will mean there will be no exports from the UK to Hong Kong of potentially lethal weapons, their components or ammunition," the foreign secretary told MPs. "It will also mean...

    Donald Trump has called for the extradition of a former MI6 agent who was behind a controversial dossier about his alleged links to Russia. Christopher Steele, now a director of Orbis Business Intelligence, was responsible for the 'dirty dossier' published in 2016 that alleged Russian influence over President Trump. The Steele Dossier contained allegations of collusion between Mr Trump's US presidential campaign and the Kremlin, which have been denied by both parties. On Wednesday, Orbis was ordered to pay compensation to two Russian businessmen that had complained about data protection breaches including inaccuracies in the dossier relating to them. Taking...

    A court in the United Kingdom ordered British ex-spy Christopher Steele to pay thousands in damages to two Russian bankers named in the former MI6 agents dossier as having illicit financial ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    'No absolute religious freedom since Henry VIII' LONDON (ChurchMilitant.com) - Protestant England never enjoyed absolute religious freedom since Henry VIII broke with Rome, a top evangelical leader is conceding, as 25 Christian leaders including a Catholic theologian challenge the churches' lockdown as a breach of the Magna Carta. Church leaders who have launched a judicial review of the lockdown are contending that the state criminalized Sunday worship for the first time in centuries despite the government allowing churches to reopen July 4 under strict guidelines. Churches should never have been shut in the first place and "this...

    Donald Trump has celebrated independence day with a string of false and misleading claims attempting to play down the coronavirus pandemic and warning that China will be held accountable. The US president staged a Salute to America jamboree on the south lawn of the White House with flyovers by military jets, parachute jumps and patriotic songs, but little effort among guests to physical distance or wear face masks. The country has undergone staggering changes unthinkable when Trump hosted the first such event a year ago on 4 July with tanks and other military hardware at the Lincoln Memorial. The coronavirus...

    Reports have circulated that Prime Minister Boris Johnson will call for Chinese-controlled Huawei to be locked out from Britains 5G by the end of this year, after the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) concluded that the products are not secure. The NCSC made the ruling that Huaweis technology was not safe to use, in light of U.S. sanctions that block the Chinese tech firm from using American components. The prospect of Huawei using alternative components, certainly Chinese, fundamentally changes the situation, according to a Whitehall source speaking to The Times. Government ministers who sit on the National Security Council will...

    Should you trust “experts” whose predictions are always wrong? It is too late to do anything about the unproven hypothesis that humans are causing enormous planet Earth’s climate to change. Maybe human activity is affecting the planet’s temperature (it isn’t). Maybe we could have done something about it (we never could, that’s ludicrous considering the size of the planet). But whatever we could have done, it’s too late now. We should just stop worrying about it. United Nations’ experts told us that by 1999 it was too late to halt global warming. In 1989, there was a 10 year window,...

    Angela Merkel announced Britain will have to live with the consequences of a distant relationship with the European Union in the event of a no-deal exit. Unlike his predecessor Theresa May, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has scrapped the idea of maintaining close economic ties with the EU after the Brexit transition period ends on December 31. The UK recently rejected a EU deal surrounding environmental and consumer protections and workplace rights, and Mrs. Merkel has now hardened her stance as Germany prepares to take over the rotating presidency of the EU. The German chancellor told the media on Friday:...

    British anti-racism protestors called for the destruction of Egypt's Giza Pyramids on Sunday, after tearing down a statue of a slave trader in the city of Bristol and throwing it in the Avon river, CNN reported Monday. The pyramids have been among the most frequently discussed topics in the UK over the past several hours, inspired by controversy over who built them. Protesters tore down the statue of British slave trader Edward Colston on the second day of protests condemning racism in the UK, part of a response to the killing of George Floyd, an African American man, by a...

    Brexit leader and veteran campaigner Nigel Farage has voiced his confidence in the election chances of President Trump in 2020, noting the unsavoury alternative of Joe Biden, who he characterised as a puppet of this new radical left. Speaking in a short film released Monday on the eve of the fourth anniversary of his victory in the 2016 Brexit referendum, Nigel Farage voiced his confidence in President Trumps ability to win this years election. But perhaps more important than that, Mr Farage said, was the urgency of that win, given the arrival of an intense culture war in the United...

    Waters, the cofounder of Pink Floyd, said in an interview with the pro-Hamas Shehab News Agency that Floyd died in Minneapolis police custody last month because of "a technique invented by" the Israeli Defense Forces. "That is an Israeli technique, taught to the militarized police forces of the United States of America by Israeli experts, who the Americans have been flying over to the United States, to teach them how to murder the blacks because they've seen how efficient the Israelis have been at murdering Palestinians in the occupied territories using those techniques," Waters said. "And they're proud of it."
