My daughter went inside the centre, only to return later and hand me her top innerwear,’ said her mother.

    The Queen wants William and Harry to be more like Philip With the news Prince Philip is officially retiring from his royal duties, reports out of the UK claim Queen Elizabeth will be making several major changes to the structure and dynamic of the monarchy.

Dennis Rodman says Kim Jong-un doesn’t hate Americans

    Dennis Rodman has opened up about his unlikely friend, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, saying he loves karaoke, TV theme tunes and playing table tennis.

When he’s around his people, he’s just like anybody else, Rodman told Dujour. He jokes and loves playing basketball, table tennis, pool. They love American ’80s music. They do karaoke to it. He has this 13-piece girls band with violins. He gets a mic and they play the whole time. He loves the Doors and Jimi Hendrix. Oldies. When I first went, the live band only played two songs for four hours: the theme songs from Rocky and Dallas. Rodman said...

Woman harasses Muslim Shopper

    Shocking footage has emerged showing a white woman harassing a Muslim shopper her who let her queue in front of her at a supermarket.

In the mobile phone footage, recorded at a Trader Joe's store in Reston, Virginia, the Muslim woman can be heard saying I shouldn't hav...

Macron defeats Le Pen and the populist revolution and prepares to make May’s task on Brexit harder

    France has chosen a new President after a turbulent and scarring election in which the centrist moderate Emmanuel Macron comprehensively beat Marine Le Pen of the hard-right Front National. It is a result which will have widespread repercussions not just for France, but across Europe, including Britain as negotiations to leave the European Union begin. Ms Le Pen had boasted that France would follow the triumphant populist path of Brexit and the presidency of Donald Trump in the US. But her harsh and negative campaign based on opposition to the European Union, opposition to immigration and opposition to supposed elitism, while espousing aggressive nationalism, was emphatically rejected by the voters. Instead they chose, with around 65 per cent of valid votes cast, compared ...
