Britain’s first non-white and Hindu prime minister takes power on Diwali: Rishi Sunak’s journey from GP’s son to multi-millionaire ‚Maharajah of the Dales‘ and then to youngest modern occupant of No10 (at the second attempt)

He will now visit the King to be appointed as the UK’s first non-white and Hindu leader. The UK’s first – and only other – minority prime minister was Benjamin Disraeli, who was Jewish, in 1874. (…)

He will become the youngest PM in the modern era to enter No 10, at the age of 42 – younger even than David Cameron in 2010 and Tony Blair in 1997.

Eight minutes, four questions and NO apology! Liz Truss makes hasty exit from press conference after U-turning on flagship corporation tax cut after SACKING Kwasi Kwarteng and replacing him with Jeremy Hunt

Under fierce fire from journalists, Ms Truss refused to apologise for ‚trashing‘ the Tories‘ reputation – before abruptly walking out after eight minutes and just four question.

Downing Street will now be waiting anxiously to see if the PM has done enough to cling on, but the early response was not promising, with one former Cabinet minister telling MailOnline the PM had been ‚robotic‘ and made the situation far worse.

Konflikt zwischen Präsident Moon und gewähltem Nachfolger Yoon verschärft sich

Präsident Moon Jae-in ernannte am Dienstag den Direktor der Asien- und Pazifikabteilung beim Internationalen Währungsfonds (IWF), Rhee Chang-yong, zum neuen Gouverneur der Bank of Korea. Das Präsidialamt teilte mit, die Nominierung nach einer Unterredung mit Yoons Seite vorgenommen zu haben. Damit sollte ein Vakuum auf dem Posten verhindert werden, da die Amtszeit des amtierenden Zentralbank-Chefs Lee Ju-yeol Ende März ablaufe. Aus Yoons Lager hieß es jedoch, dass es zu der Frage keine eingehende Besprechung gegeben habe.

UK Covid LIVE: Sajid Javid says ‘immediate priority’ is to end Covid pandemic as soon as possible as half of under 30s get jab

Speaking to the media for the first time since becoming Health Secretary on Saturday, Mr Javid said: „I was honoured to take up this position. I also know that it comes with a huge responsibility and I will do everything I can to make sure that I deliver for this great country.

„We are still in a pandemic and I want to see that come to an end as soon as possible and that will be my most immediate priority, to see that we can return to normal as soon and as quickly as possible.“

Ordinary people sacrificed everything during the pandemic – this government has laughed in our faces

I have no idea what qualifies Ms Coladangelo, a lobbyist and communications director, to be an adviser and non-executive director at the Department of Health and Social Care, other than the fact she has been pals with Hancock for years. Perhaps we know now why Hancock failed at the time of the appointment to declare his “friendship” with her. In her time of advising him, Hancock oversaw the highest death rates in Europe from Covid, so the value of this appointment was seemingly for him, not for us. The whole thing stinks. It stank even before the videos of the kiss.

Hancock’s fall catapults Sajid Javid back into the heart of Conservative politics

Thirteen months ago, Dominic Cummings faced an avalanche of demands to resign after being caught in an egregious breach of the Covid lockdown regulations. Although Cummings had clearly broken rules that he had helped to draw up, and public opinion was against him, he survived – albeit for only a few months – because Boris Johnson stood behind him.

This weekend, Matt Hancock also had Johnson’s backing…

The House: Is it past time Canada had an Indigenous governor general?

Last month, New Zealand appointed the first Indigenous woman to serve as governor general. Dame Cindy Kiro, a well-known children’s advocate, is the third Māori to hold the post. The first, Sir Paul Reeves, was appointed in 1985.

The federal government is under enormous pressure right now to show some progress on Crown-Indigenous reconciliation — in the wake of this week’s reports on undocumented deaths at the Kamloops Indian Residential School and fresh calls for Ottawa to move faster on implementing the recommendations of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.

High Court cancels hearing as PM agrees to Gantz as justice ministe

In addition, a few moments before Netanyahu announced his decision to back Gantz for the position, he apparently was made aware that Bennett held his first meeting with Mansour Abbas – the leader of the Islamist Ra’am party – in an effort to form a unity government.

Netanyahu reverses course, votes to appoint Gantz as justice minister

Hours before the High Court of Justice was due to decide on the legality of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s attempts to install a justice minister from his own party, the premier announced Wednesday afternoon he supports the appointment of Blue & White leader Benny Gantz for the position.

Netanyahu Caves After Rebuke From Supreme Court: Gantz Appointed Justice Minister

In a statement Netanyahu said, „The prime minister submitted a detailed response to the High Court that completely rejects the court’s claim that yesterday’s vote was illegal.“

„However,“ Netanyahu said, „after the prime minister’s attempts at compromise were rejected again this morning, and in order to extract us from this dead end situation and allow the Justice Ministry to function, the prime minister decided to appoint Benny Gantz to the post of Justice Minister for the tenure of the interim government.“

Netanyahu is attacking Israel. Stop him – comment

Netanyahu’s refusal to appoint a justice minister is a direct assault on this nation. It is that simple.
His reasoning is also simple: Netanyahu does not want to fill the role with someone who is not subservient and willing to go along with coordinated efforts to escape his bribery trial.

28.04.2021 - 05:24 [ Haaretz ]

The Court Gave Netanyahu a License. It Can’t Complain if He Shoots

Rather, it is the public danger he constitutes and his conspiring to topple state institutions. Ordinary criminal defendants who behaved as Netanyahu has would have long since been ordered to remain in custody for the duration of legal proceedings, lest they obstruct the investigation and trial, and for disobeying a court order. But we can’t complain to Netanyahu about it, when the court itself gives him license to harm it.

High Court to convene as government stalls again over justice minister

The High Court of Justice was to convene at 5pm Tuesday after the government failed to appoint a justice minister within the time frame allocated by the court.

The latest attempt to end the deadlock over the appointment of the minister failed when the government voted down a move by Blue & White leader Benny Gantz to return to the ministry on a permanent basis.

Supreme Court Chief Issues Ultimatum to Netanyahu: Appoint Justice Minister in 48 Hours

The justice minister post has remained empty since Gantz’s term as acting justice minister lapsed on April 1. The appointment of a justice minister is a particularly sensitive issue, given that Netanyahu is currently amid an ongoing corruption trial for bribery, fraud and breach of trust.

Mandelblit insisted that the PM must be prevented from appointing officials who would have the power to influence the probe against him.

President Rivlin, Act Now – Before It’s Too Late

The moment of truth for our future is approaching. What we saw the other day on the steps of the Capitol and inside it is a warning sign. Netanyahu’s readiness to break every rule and law is obvious, and reached a peak at the start of his trial, with that scene in the courthouse that could have come right out of a gangster movie. And in fact, the prosecutor in his trial is already under guard day and night, just like the prosecutors in the trials of organized crime bosses, and for the same reasons.

The trial has begun, and so a new situation is before us.

One of first jobs facing a Netanyahu-Gantz government will be to appoint a permanent state prosecutor.
