May condemns Trump’s family separation policy whether she will challenge during his visit in UK

    Theresa May meeting US President Donald Trump. Theresa May has condemned Donald Trump’s policy of keeping migrant children in cages at the US border and vowed to challenge him when they meet next month.

The pictures of children being held in what appear to be cages are deeply disturbing. This is wrong, she told MPs.

ISIS recruiter brainwashed glamour model on Facebook before grooming

    A glamour model has revealed how an ISIS recruiter brainwashed her on Facebook before grooming her to move to Syria to become the next White Widow.

Brexit meaningful vote: May wins after rebels accept compromise

    The attempt to secure a meaningful vote that potentially could have given MPs the power to stop Britain leaving the EU without a deal has been defeated. The final obstacle to the EU withdrawal bill was removed as MPs voted 303 to 319 against an amendment that had been tabled by the former attorney general Dominic Grieve before he accepted government reassurances about its respect for the power of MPs to hold it to account. At least five Tory rebels Ken Clarke, Anna Soubry, Heidi Allen and Antoinette Sandbach, as well as Dr Philip Lee who resigned last week to vote against the government held out against the compromise that Labour MPs dismissed as meaningless. Grieve was accused by one angry Labour backbencher of behaving like the Grand old Duke of York. You can’t k...
