    Today the country celebrates Pride with its symbol, the rainbow. The rainbow generally follows the dark clouds: when colour and light once more break through; much like the history of Pride itself. This weekend also marks the 50th anniversary of a police raid on the Stonewall Inn. Its brutality sparked riots that energised the fight for gay equality in the US. The stand taken and the refusal to be beaten down is said to have been the catalyst for the modern gay-rights movement. If today people of the same sex can walk hand in hand without comment, it might too...

The 48-year-old barrister has been described as “a giant in his field” by colleagues, who said that his death is “a monumental loss to the cause of international justice and human rights.” Oxford graduate Mr Jones, who took silk in 2013, specialised in extradition,...

    Top barrister: Amal Alamuddin is defending a suspected Libyan war criminal accused of masterminding the Lockerbie bombing Having won the heart of the world’s most eligible bachelor, Amal Alamuddin is getting used to being the centre of attention.

It has been just a week since her engagement to the Hollywood heart-throb was revealed but it is already clear that the high-flying barrister is not about to let her career take a back seat....

    The date April 3rd has held a unique place in our history over the years. Theologians and astronomers will tell you that Christ was crucified on that date. On April 3rd Harry Truman signed the Marshall Plan, arguably the greatest postwar intervention in the history of man. The first portable cellphone call was made on April 3rd. Marlon Brando was born on that day. But this April 3rd will hold its own place in history. On this particular April 3rd the nation of Brunei will begin stoning and whipping to death any of its citizens that are proved to be...

    Milan (AFP) - An Italian appeals court on Friday cleared Silvio Berlusconi of having sex with an underage prostitute and abuse of power in a surprise ruling that will strengthen the former prime minister on the political scene. "The defendant is acquitted," presiding judge Enrico Tranfa said, requesting silence after gasps from the courtroom. The effectively scraps Berlusconi's seven-year sentence and lifelong ban from holding public office. The judge said there was "no crime" on the abuse of power charge and that Berlusconi's actions "did not constitute a crime" on the prostitution one, promising to publish a detailed explanation within...

    International human rights attorney Amal Clooney accused President Trump of putting the lives of journalists in danger with his rhetoric in a speech at the United Nations Correspondents Association Awards this week. She said that journalists were “under attack,” in “autocratic regimes from North Korea to the Philippines to Hungary.” “The U.S. president has given such regimes a green light and labeled the press in this country the ‘enemy of the people,’” she argued. President Trump has used and tweeted the “enemy of the people” label about media he considers to be “fake news.” “And of course, two months ago,...

I get that he has a hardcore following, but his own attitudes toward women, from his weird early writings to his physical dismissal of women in his presence (including his own wife) make that an incredibly dubious prospect.— Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid) November 29, 2017 Her comments did not go unnoticed.  I didn't answer your biased reporting about Bernie during the last 2...

    Meanwhile, duped conservative politicians both past and present: Be aware that George Clooney’s texting buddy is Clooney described as the “filthiest stuff” and “foul” Sacha Baron Cohen—who reportedly interviewed Sarah Palin posing as a disabled veteran in a wheelchair—isn’t the first to use revered US military as props. Former President Barack Obama and his overbearing wife, Michelle came first. Even as he was gutting the U.S. military, in 2013, a preening Obama created something of a stir when he summoned over two marines to hold umbrellas over himself and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan for protection from light rain...

    They are calling it the ‘Amal Effect’ because, following George Clooney’s marriage to human rights barrister Amal Alamuddin, it seems that what a bachelor film star of a certain age needs most is a consort with a supernova combination of beauty, brains, and serious professional achievement. The latest star to embrace the phenomenon is Brad Pitt — probably the most eligible bachelor in Hollywood since his split from Angelina Jolie and, incidentally, a long-time pal of Clooney’s.In Professor Neri Oxman he has found a dazzling supernova of his own, and reportedly thinks she is ‘the sexiest thing he ever laid...

    Last week, actress and star of NBC’s The Black List Megan Boone tweeted that her character on the popular crime drama would “never carry an assault rifle again.” The tweet — which was in response to the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that saw Nikolas Cruz kill 17 people with a legally purchased AR-15 rifle — posed a glaring question. Will other pro-gun control Hollywood actors and directors who’ve used firearms in films for years pledge to lay down their guns in future films? It’s a question that could be asked of the likes of...

YOUR SILENCE is THE problem. You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa." Marchesa, a womenswear company, was founded by Georgina Chapman, Harvey Weinstein's ex-wife. Weinstein himself is presumably the "Pig Monster" in McGowan's tweet.</p>
