(17.1.2019) „I mean I’m really not going to take sides in this,“ he later added. „There are no candidates, with one exception, that I really don’t think should be president.“

„And who’s that exception?“ asked co-host John Berman.

„Tulsi Gabbard. I don’t think she knows what she’s doing and I don’t think she … is qualified. She’s not qualified,“ Dean responded.

„And what’s that based on?“ asked Camerota.

„About her dalliances with [Syrian President Bashar Assad], her statements about gay people. … I don’t know what she thinks she’s doing.”

Brexit: High-profile Germans plead with UK to stay in EU

The letter, published in the Times, is signed by 31 people, including the leader of the Christian Democratic Union – and likely successor to Angela Merkel – Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer and former Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann.

They cited post-work pints and pantomime as beloved British habits.

„Sir, Without your great nation, this continent would not be what it is today: a community defined by freedom and prosperity. After the horrors of the Second World War, Britain did not give up on us. It has welcomed Germany back as a sovereign nation and a European power. This we, as Germans, have not forgotten and we are grateful.“

Watch: ‘Shame on you’: Labour MPs shout down Michael Gove

Michael Gove ended the no confidence debate in the Commons by denouncing Jeremy Corbyn. But perhaps unsurprisingly his criticism of the Labour leader did not go down well with those on the opposite benches.

17.01.2019 - 05:52 [ Spectator.co.uk ]

Transcript: Michael Gove’s barnstorming speech in no-confidence debate

„He wants to leave NATO. He wants to get rid of our nuclear deterrent. And recently in a speech he said: why do countries boast about the size of their armies? Why don’t we emulate Costa Rica that has no army at all?

No allies, no deterrent, no army – no way can this country ever allow that man to be our Prime Minister in charge of our security.

If he can’t support our fighting men and women, who does he support? Who does he stand beside? Well, it was fascinating to discover that that he was there when a wreath was laid to commemorate those who were involved in the massacre at the Munich Olympics of Israeli. Now, he says he was “present, but not involved”.

“Present but not involved” sums him up when it comes to national security. When this House voted to bomb the fascists of ISIS after an inspirational speech by the Member for Leeds Central in which 66 people voted with this government in order to defeat fascism. I’m afraid that the honourable gentleman the Leader of the Opposition was not with us. In fighting fascism, he was present but not involved.“

He’s now starting to tell lies about Corbyn. The tone of this is shocking, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if Tory backbenchers look at Gove and start thinking about what they will do at the next confidence motion. This is truly disgusting.

Sky Views: We may yet be glad John Bercow is still Speaker

But if you think the only thing that matters is that a majority voted to leave the EU in the referendum, then you are likely to think Mr Bercow is a dishonest and biased scoundrel who has broken the rules in his determination to stop Brexit.

It is possible to take a different view of the Speaker’s behaviour. For a start it is entirely consistent with the way that he has done the job over the past 10 years – when a majority of MPs have repeatedly chosen to keep him in the chair.

“President Trump, I think, has made it clear publicly on any number of occasions how concerned he is about the proliferation of nuclear weapons, whether it’s North Korea, Iran, or anybody else, and he’s a strong believer in taking steps with Israel and others in the region who are like-minded to make sure Iran never gets to that point,” Bolton continued.

Will UK isolate itself after Brexit?

Historically, unlike Japan, which has been secluded, the UK has always maintained close ties with the European continent. Not only do its religions and races come from the continent, but it is also economically close to Europe and politically part of the European royal family network. Queen Victoria was also broadly called the „European grandmother“.

In order to understand the relationship between the UK and the European continent, the Hundred Years‘ War is a useful beginning. …

Macron’s top-down approach to fighting climate change serves as a cautionary tale

While world leaders gather in Katowice, Poland, for the COP24 climate summit, protesters in the streets of Paris have successfully forced French President Emmanuel Macron’s hand, undercutting his efforts to impose a carbon tax on French energy sales. Macron has made climate change and lowering greenhouse gases a central component of both his domestic and foreign policies, only to face dramatic failure at the hands of his „yellow vest“ countrymen.
