    Ecuador is ready to hand over the WikiLeaks founder to the UK in “coming weeks or even days,” RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan said citing her own sources, as prospects of his eviction from the embassy are back in the media. “My sources tell [Julian] Assange will be handed over to Britain in the coming weeks or even days,” Simonyan wrote in a recent tweet which was reposted by WikiLeaks. “Like never before, I wish my sources were wrong,” she continued. Simonyan's message comes, as speculations Ecuador is in talks with the UK over the future of Assange are back again...

    Top judges will today hear a challenge by former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson against his 13-month jail term for contempt of court. Mr Robinson, real name Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon, was locked up in May after he filmed people involved in a criminal trial and broadcast the footage on social media. The footage, lasting around an hour, was watched 250,000 times within hours of being posted on Facebook. .....

    London’s Metropolitan Police fails to record over 94,500 reported crimes each year, representing 10.5 percent of all reported crimes, according to estimates by the policing and fire services watchdog. Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services (HMICFRS) found that officers were failing to accurately record crimes including domestic abuse and violence when they occurred alongside other crimes as well as some public order offences and low-level crimes. Last year, the Met recorded over 800,000 crimes and the HMICFRS believes these near-100,000 annual missed recordings occur because officers did not “recognise” when crimes were committed or did...

    President Donald Trump's first official visit to the U.K. was marked by thousands of people demonstrating in the streets, first in London as Trump met with Queen Elizabeth and then in Scotland where he went to play a little golf. Handmade signs at the massive protest in central London last Friday took aim at Trump's immigration policies and his past comments about women, among plenty of other topics. Not everyone in the crowds came out to hate on Trump. Some were seen sporting his campaign slogan "Make America Great Again" on hats, according to the Associated Press. But the majority...

    The Scotland police on Saturday arrested and charged a man in connection with the anti-Trump paraglider protest at President Trump's Turnberry golf course, according to the New York Times. The police said in a statement that they had arrested the 55-year-old man in connection with an incident when a "powered parachute was flown in the vicinity of the Turnberry Hotel." The man reportedly flew through a no-fly zone. Videos shared on social media on Friday night showed a man flying over Trump's Scottish golf resort carrying a banner that read "Trump: Well Below Par." The protest was apparently organized by...

    THE QUEEN was left to take on her royal duty alone when she met Donald Trump and wife Melania, with Prince Charles and Prince William refusing to join in the elaborate welcome. Senior members of the Royal Family, including the first and second in line to the throne, had informal discussions about the trip, and let it be known they did not want to take part in arrangements for the US President’s four-day UK visit. Downing Street and Buckingham Palace both said as Trump’s tour of the UK was not an official state visit, there was a singular plan to...

    THE heir to Blenheim Palace was reportedly told to 'upskirt Melania' as he live streamed President Trump's visit to his home. Aristocrat George Spencer-Churchill, 25, filmed the historic event on his phone and posted the clips online. But friends of George, who is a distant relative of Winston Churchill, are said to have made a series of ill-judged comments about the First Lady and her husband. The heir to Blenheim Palace, where the lavish event was being held, showed off images from the black-tie dinner in Oxfordshire on Thursday night. Made In Chelsea star Charlie Mills is said to have...

    LONDON – Thousands of Trump supporters and right-wing activists took to the nation’s capital on Saturday — a day after anti-Trump protesters had dominated the city. While the displays of right-wing support were nowhere near as large as the enormous anti-Trump march that demanded the international media’s attention the day before, it was still a significant show of support for Trump from those eager to counter the claim that Trump had been unanimously rejected by Britons. The day started with a small pro-Trump rally outside the U.S. Embassy, featuring numerous red “MAGA” hats and U.S. and U.K. flags -- as...

    Sam Brownback, the U.S. Ambassador for International Religious Freedom, complained to the British ambassador in Washington D.C. about the treatment of an English right-wing activist who is in jail for disrupting a trial, according to three sources familiar with the discussion. Brownback raised the case of the activist known as Tommy Robinson in a June meeting with Sir Kim Darroch, Britain's Ambassador to the United States, according to a British official and two sources close to the organizers of a pro-Robinson demonstration planned for London on Saturday. Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, though he also uses other aliases,...

    While President Donald Trump met with Prime Minister Theresa May Friday morning, First Lady Melania Trump set out for London to meet up with May's husband, Philip May, at London's Royal Hospital for an event with British schoolchildren and veterans. The first lady met with school children who showed her how they make poppies -- a British symbol in that stands in tribute to fallen service members -- that are sold to raise money for veterans on Armistice Day and, in an apparent nod to Mrs Trump's "Be Best" initiative that promotes children's interests, chatted with a group of kids...

    The U.K.’s government-run healthcare system, the National Health Service, turns 70 this month. There’s not much to celebrate. The NHS is collapsing. Patients routinely face treatment delays, overcrowded hospitals, and doctor shortages. Even its most ardent defenders admit that the NHS is in crisis. Yet American progressives want to import this disastrous model. About one in three Democratic senators and more than half of Democratic representatives support single-payer health care. Why? The British experiment with socialized medicine has been a monumental failure. It would be foolish to repeat that mistake here. Single-payer is fundamentally flawed. It relieves consumers of any...

Stanton and his diving partner, John Volanthen, have been identified in the British media as the two British divers who first discovered the 12 children and soccer coach trapped in a cavern in northern Thailand. In the dramatic video footage of the moment when the divers reach the group, nine days after they disappeared, a diver with a British accent is heard talking to the group. “How many of you? Thirteen? Brilliant,” he says, as a beam from...

    LONDON (Reuters) - The U.S. Embassy in London issued an alert on Tuesday to Americans in the British capital, warning them to keep a low profile during President Donald Trump’s visit later this week in case protests against him turn violent. Trump arrives in Britain on Thursday after a NATO summit and thousands of protesters are expected to join demonstrations during his visit, including plans to fly a blimp over parliament portraying Trump as an orange, snarling baby. While Britain regards the United States as its closest ally, some Britons see Trump as crude, volatile and opposed to their values...
