    A mother-of-12 who receives £40,0000-a-year in benefits is planning to spend £4,000 on a boob job, it's reported. Cheryl Prudham, who has been dubbed Britain's most shameless mum, has apparently been fed up with her saggy breasts since the birth of her youngest child in July. The 33-year-old is set to go under the knife at Liverpool's MYA Cosmetic Surgery Clinic to boost her from a B cup to a 34D, the Daily Star Sunday reported. Cheryl, from Skelmersdale, Lancashire, wants to become more like her idol Katie Price and missed the fact her boobs were bigger during pregnancy, according to pals. A source told the newspaper: "Cheryl can’t wait to have her boobs done and wants them modelled on Katie’s. "She doesn’t feel very sexy after 12 children and has always admired Katie for...

IS Holds 3,500 Women And Children As Slaves

    Islamic State is holding an estimated 3,500 women and children as slaves in Iraq, the United Nations says. Those being held are primarily women and children from the Yazidi community, but a number are from other ethnic and religious minority groups, according to a report issued in Geneva. The UN Assistance Mission for Iraq and the UN's human rights office have documented widespread abuses that "in some instances amount to war crimes, crimes against humanity, and possibly genocide". They also say that IS militants have imposed a harsh rule marked by gruesome public executions. Methods of execution include shooting, beheading, bulldozing, burning people alive and throwing them off the top of buildings. The UN also said it had verified reports on child soldiers, saying that 8...

    The UN says the violence suffered by civilians in Iraq remains staggering, with at least 18,800 killed between 1 January 2014 and 31 October 2015. Some 3.2 million people have also been displaced internally over the same period, according to a new report.

This is the horror they face in their homelands". Gruesome spectacles The report, by the United Nations Assistance Mission...

UK ban risks making Donald Trump a martyr, MPs are warned

    Banning Donald Trump from the UK risks martyring him, MPs heard amid warnings the US presidential hopeful could fuel the flames of terrorism. The controversial billionaire businessman was labelled a wazzock and criticised by several MPs for his repugnant remarks about Muslims, Mexicans, women and others during a three-hour parliamentary debate. Calls to bar Mr Trump emerged from some MPs and Labour's Jack Dromey (Birmingham Erdington) warned he should not be allowed within 1,000 miles of our shore. This is because he would embolden the EDL on the one hand and fuel the flames of terrorism on the other hand, according to Mr Dromey. But many Conservatives criticised the debate, saying MPs were playing into Mr Trump's hands by fuelling the publicity over his comments while als...

North Korea claims to have invented the world’s first hangover free alcohol

    North Korean scientists claim to have invented the world’s first hangover-free alcohol, adding that drinkers love it because it makes them look suave. The liquor is said to have been made from the plant extract ginseng, which Pyongyang officials have previously declared the elixir of life and falsely claimed to be a cure for SARS and Aids. Called Koryo Liquor, the drink is made at the state-run Taedonggang Foodstuff Factory where scientists have been working for years to replace the alcohol in sugar with burnt rice. They have now declared the process a success, saying that after years of working on different formulas they have finally stopped the drink being unpalatably bitter – with the added unexpected bonus of the drink being hangover-free. Koryo Liquor, which is made o...

David Cameron: I will back schools and courts which ban face veils

    Muslim women can be banned from wearing veils in schools, courts and other British institutions, David Cameron has said as the Government intensifies the war on home-grown extremism. The Prime Minister said that he will give his backing to public authorities that choose to ban women from wearing face veils. It comes as the Government prepares to announce a series of measures designed to stop British Muslims becoming radicalised and traveling to the Middle East to join terrorist groups like Isil. Mr Cameron also announced that tens of thousands of Muslim women will face deportation unless they pass a series of English language tests after coming to Britain on spouse visas. The Prime Minister's comments about veils will reignite the row over whether Britain should endorse a ...
