    Tie-breaks will be played at 12-12 in the final set at Wimbledon from next year, the All England Lawn Tennis Club has announced. It comes after the final set of Kevin Anderson's semi-final with John Isner this year lasted almost three hours. Afterwards South African Anderson, who eventually won the set 26-24, called for a rethink of the format. The AELTC said "the time had come" to introduce a tie-break method at "a reasonable point" in a deciding set. The winner will be the first player or team to reach seven points with an advantage of two or more points....

    White Semidouble THIS GLORIOUS SAINT was like a beautiful lily, crowning the ancient branch of the kings of Wessex. The times had progressed since that sixth century, when the pagan Cerdic and other pirate chiefs from the North Sea scattered with ruins the island of saints. Having accomplished their mission of wrath, the Anglo-Saxons became instruments of grace to the land they had conquered. Evangelized by Rome, even as the Britons they had just chastized, they remembered, better than the latter, whence their salvation had come; a spring-tide blossoming of sanctity showed the pleasure God took once more in...

    WEST YORKSHIRE, United Kingdom, October 12, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A biologically male rapist who “identifies” as a woman has received a life sentence for sexually assaulting four female inmates at an all-female facility, as well as for his previous offenses. Stephen Wood, a 52-year-old man and convicted sex offender and pedophile who now goes by the name "Karen White,” was incarcerated at the all-female New Hall Prison. He had previously pled guilty for raping one woman in 2003 and another in 2016, and was awaiting sentencing for stabbing a neighbor last year. Soon after arriving at the facility, he allegedly...

    A group of soldiers are under investigation by the British Army after posing for a photograph with citizen journalist and street organiser Tommy Robinson, with the force vowing to punish those involved. Britain’s officer class received a stark and distinct reminder that the majority of the nation’s fighting strength is drawn from white, working-class communities Tuesday when a group of two dozen uniformed soldiers bumped into Tommy Robinson at a motorway service station (rest area). The young soldiers were travelling from the Catterick Garrison, the British Army’s largest base, and had stopped at a motorway services, with some of the...

    The Muslim Council of Britain is calling on the British government to ban renowned evangelist Franklin Graham because they allege his views on Islam and same-sex marriage violate the nation's hate speech laws. Graham, the president of Samaritan's Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, is scheduled to lead a series of religious gatherings beginning Sept. 21. "In the past the government has banned individuals whom they claim are 'not conducive to the public good.' Mr. Graham's remarks are on record and clearly demonstrate a hatred for Muslims and other minorities," the organization said in a statement. One government leader...

    The UK Labour Party has been charged with spewing anti-Semitic sentiments in recent years. In a 2013 speech at the Palestinian Return Center in London, for instance, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the following: Where, then, lies the grievance with Corbyn? At that meeting on Sunday, Jewish Labourites were not opposing the party leader for championing the Palestinians. They were opposing him for, to take one example, his 2013 attack on a group of “Zionists” he’d encountered, where he tackled them not on their arguments but on ethnic grounds, noting that despite “having lived in this country for a very...

    SAN FRANCISCO — Pete Roberts of Nottingham, England, was one of the many risk-takers who threw their savings into cryptocurrencies when prices were going through the roof last winter. Now, eight months later, the $23,000 he invested in several digital tokens is worth about $4,000, and he is clearheaded about what happened. "I got too caught up in the fear of missing out and trying to make a quick buck," he said this week. "The losses have pretty much left me financially ruined." Mr. Roberts, 28, has a lot of company. After the latest round of big price drops, many...

    This gives new meaning to the term bar fight. So-called "lager lout" wasps are attacking Britain after getting drunk drinking fermented fruit and leftover pub-garden cider, stinging anyone and everyone they can find, the Daily Mail reports. The angry insects are getting into the booze since their normal diet, which consists of flies and sugar-spit that is produced from the queen's larvae, is scarce. The change in diet is said to happen every year but this year has been especially worse, due in large part to the unusually cold winter Britain experienced, letting the wasps build larger than normal nests....

    And in Lovelock’s view, the Earth’s self-regulating system is seriously out of whack, thanks largely to our 150-year fossil fuel binge. “You could quite seriously look at climate change as a response of the system intended to get rid of an irritating species: us humans,” Lovelock told me in 2007 when I visited him at his house in Devon, England, for a profile in Rolling Stone. “Or at least cut them back to size.” By 2020, droughts and other extreme weather will be commonplace. By 2040, the Sahara will be moving into Europe, and Berlin will be as hot as...

    In a legal first, a British High Court judge has recognised a shariah marriage when ruling on a ‘divorce’ petition of a Muslim woman, likely setting a precedent on the acceptance of Islamic marriages and divorces in the UK. Mr Justice Williams ruled that an estranged Muslim couple’s Islamic marriage does fall under the scope of the 1973 Matrimonial Causes Act and that they could, therefore, ‘divorce’ — despite the couple never having had a legal civil ceremony, reports The Guardian. Nasreen Akhter and Mohammed Shabaz Khan, both of Pakistani heritage, had ‘married’ in an Islamic nikah ceremony conducted by...

    Ms Buckman tried to book an abortion when she was seven weeks pregnant and waited two weeks - but the medical procedure failed and the next two appointments did not go ahead due to lack of staff. The mother-of-two's last booked procedure was cancelled just hours before it was due and she must now wait two more weeks for an appointment - a two-hour drive from her Kent home. Ms Buckman, now 15 weeks pregnant, is angry at the treatment she received at Marie Stopes UK, which carries out abortions for the NHS. Most abortions in England, Wales and Scotland...

    Not a single Christian was among the 1,112 Syrian refugees resettled in the UK in the first three months of this year, the Home Office has admitted. It agreed only to resettle Muslims and rejected the four Christians recommended by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), despite past US declarations that Isis was committing genocide against them. The disclosure was obtained by the Barnabas Fund, a charity that supports persecuted Christians, under freedom of information laws after a protracted tussle with the Home Office.

Five Live here. Should doctors be able to withdraw food and fluids from severely brain-damaged people who are not imminently dying? And if so, in what circumstances? The answer to these questions has changed significantly today because of a decision by the Supreme Court. Patients with permanent vegetative state (PVS) and minimally conscious state (MCS) can now be effectively starved and dehydrated to death if the medical staff and...
