As you do.”

    Foreign Office Minister Tobias Ellwood is being hailed as a hero after trying to save the life of the police officer stabbed in the Westminster terror attack. Mr Ellwood, a former soldier, ran to the officer when he was stabbed just inside the gates of Parliament. He gave him mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and stemmed the blood flow, before waiting with him until the air ambulance landed in Parliament Square. The police officer sadly died at the scene. He was later pictured with blood on his face as he spoke to emergency services. Mr Ellwood has been a Minister in the Foreign...

    David Cameron has announced he is quitting the House of Commons with immediate effect, saying it is not 'possible' for him to be a lowly MP. The former Prime Minister said he did not want to be a 'distraction' to Theresa May and would trigger a by-election in his Witney seat. He said he wanted to forge a 'life outside Westminster' - sparking speculation that he wants to pursue lucrative career options like Tony Blair.

    Andrea Leadsom has pulled out of the contest to become the next Conservative Party leader and UK PM - with Theresa May now set to succeed David Cameron. Mrs Leadsom said she did not believe she had sufficient support to lead a "strong and stable government". She also said a nine-week leadership campaign at such a "critical time" for the UK would be "highly undesirable". The energy minister said Mrs May was "ideally placed" to implement Brexit, and wished her the "greatest success". A source close to the energy minister told BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg "the abuse has been...

    ...With less than a month to go in the campaign, and heading into the first of three leaders debates, the Tories have moved ahead of their rivals with the support of 35.4 per cent of voters, according to the Ekos poll conducted for Montreal’s La Presse newspaper.... “If (the Conservatives) keep those numbers up they’re very close to a majority — if not there already,” said pollster Frank Graves. “The numbers are about as good as we had for the final weekend of polling (in the 2011 election) when they achieved their majority.”...

    <p>British Prime Minister David Cameron and his Tory party all but vanquished the opposing Labor Party and proved pre-election polls wrong with a resounding election triumph he called "the sweetest victory of all."</p> <p>Fueled by a landslide in Scotland, Cameron and the Tories left opponents on the right and left in tatters. The Labour Party lost 24 seats in Parliament according to early returns, and party leader Ed Miliband resigned from his role. Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg resigned after acknowledging a "cruel and punishing defeat," in which his left-of-center part suffered its worst-ever defeat - dropping from 57 seats to just 8. On the right, UK Independence Party Leader Nigel Farage, a thorn in Cameron's side, failed to win a seat.</p>

    TORONTO - Here's the story: Toronto's new mayor is John Tory. As the polls predicted, the frontrunner cruised to victory on Monday night defeating Olivia Chow and Doug Ford in the race for the city's top job. The Tory win caps off a 10-month long campaign and sets the stage for a much quieter Toronto City Hall after Mayor Rob Ford's turbulent reign.

    Nigel Farage was heading for a breakthrough in local and European elections on Thursday, as early results suggested that the UK Independence party leader’s prediction of a political “earthquake” might be borne out. Mr Farage was hopeful that Ukip would win the European elections, the party’s first victory in a nationwide poll, leaving big questions for the leaders of each of the three traditional parties over how they deal with the populist insurgency.

    David Bishop, a candidate in Brentwood South, Essex, apologised after retweeting messages, including one that claimed Islam was the religion of rape. "I have let myself and my party down," Mr Bishop said in a statement. It comes after a UKIP council candidate, who tweeted that Islam was "evil", was suspended from the party. 'Real offence' Mr Bishop, who is also a DJ in the Brentwood area, retweeted one message on 13 April that read: "How CAN a gay guy keep a straight face?" In another message, retweeted on April 27 - two days after Mr Bishop was named as a Conservative council candidate...

    The Tory revolt over Europe took a dramatic turn last night after senior Conservative David Davis called on the Government to open talks with Brussels on quitting the EU. Former Tory chairman Mr. Davis tore into David Cameron, accusing him of making a mess of his pledge to win back powers from the EU. “Scaremongers” who said Britain would collapse if it decided to go it alone were talking nonsense, said Mr Davis. Quitting the EU would be like a “revolution” and would boost UK jobs, wages, world power, arts and prestige, he added. Significantly, his intervention comes days after...

    David Cameron has been given a clear demand from the Conservative Party’s grass roots to drop his controversial plans to legalize same-sex marriage in an eve-of-conference poll. The survey of Tory constituency chairmen, seen by The Sunday Telegraph, finds that 71 percent think the proposal—which the Prime Minister has pledged will be law by 2015—should be abandoned. Nearly half the chairmen claim their local parties have lost members as a result of the plans, while only three percent say they have gained membership. …

    When he became Tory leader seven years ago, the youthful and telegenic David Cameron pledged to transform the blue-rinse image of his party and boost its membership by attracting thousands of young, ethnic and gay members. In doing so, he would destroy forever the Tories’ reputation as the ‘nasty party’ as these new ‘inclusive’ members joined the 300,000 activists whose average age was 64 ‘I was elected Leader of the Conservative Party on a mandate to change and modernise the party,’ he said. ‘I want to increase membership. I want to see a broader base. I want to see a...

    Homeschooling families will soon be forbidden from teaching that homosexual sex is sinful as part of their schooling program, according to the government of Alberta, Canada. Under the province’s Education Act, homeschoolers and religious schools will be banned from “disrespecting” people’s differences, Alberta Education Minister Thomas Lukaszuk’s office told LifeSiteNews just last week. “Whatever the nature of schooling – homeschool, private school, Catholic school – we do not tolerate disrespect for differences,” said Donna McColl, Lukaszuk’s assistant director of communications. “You can affirm the family’s ideology in your family life, you just can’t do it as part of your educational...

    TORONTO - Rookie PC candidate George Lepp says he's embarrassed that a photo of his family jewels was posted on his campaign Twitter account for about 20 minutes before it was quickly unzipped. Alan Sakach, communications director for the Ontario Conservatives, said the photo was inadvertently taken by Lepp's BlackBerry when it was in his front pocket. The photo was posted after someone took it from the candidate for the riding of Niagara Falls, Ont., according to Sakach. "He is pretty upset and embarrassed," Sakach said of a photo that was posted on Lepp's account Sunday. "It was removed as...

    “To be born an Englishman,” Cecil Rhodes once claimed, “is to win first prize in the lottery of life.” These days, Mark Steyn says the prize goes to Americans, and whenever I think of Westminster, I can’t help thinking he might be on to something. Our supposedly centre-Right Government supports a plethora of Left-liberal causes (such as EU membership and global warming taxes) and favours a Big Society where – for unclear reasons – government is also big. Across the Pond, however, the Republican-dominated House of Representatives is flowing over with radicalism, voting only last Wednesday to abolish ObamaCare. So...

Now that may seem like small potatoes in the age of Barack “the sky’s the limit” Obama. But keep in mind that there only about 11 million Greeks. ..snip.. Of course, Greece will never pay back this money. In the time-honored custom of Third World nations across the globe, it will default. But now it looks like the habit may be catching.
