Tens of thousands of people have voted to oppose the implementation of unfair new libel laws that would muzzle the free Press. More than 140,000 people have responded to a Government consultation on whether to implement Section 40 (s.40) of the Crime and Courts Act, which could force newspapers and websites to pay libel costs even if they win a defamation case. While the Department for Culture Media and Sport has not given a breakdown, newspaper industry sources are confident there was a clear majority in favour of the repeal of s40. The consultation closed yesterday and it is believed at least

A PROTESTER has been hospitalised after trying to set himself alight outside the Trump International Hotel to moan about the President-elect’s upcoming inauguration. The incident happened at around 9.30pm local time on Wednesday evening, when several items were set on fire on the street outside the billionaire’s hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue, just a short distance from the White House in Washington. Speaking to NBC 4, the man said: "I was trying to light myself on fire as an act of protest.

Trump is only stopping over in DC and is expected to fly back to New York on Tuesday night. Adviser Kellyanne Conway was with him, and she was spotted wearing a white gown and carrying what appeared to be a fur coat. The Donald didn´t waste any time once he

Theresa May yesterday rejected the case for keeping Britain tied to the EU single market – pledging instead to ‘rediscover’ our role as a ‘great, global, trading nation’. The Prime Minister said that membership of the single market ‘would to all intents and purposes mean not leaving the EU at all’, owing to its rules on free movement and accepting the supremacy of the European Court of Justice. To the fury of Remainers, she said this would not be acceptable to a British public which voted to retake control of its own destiny. ging instead to ‘rediscover’ our role as

MORE than 1,000 British tourists have been forced to flee Gambia after the President declared a state of emergency in the volatile nation – throwing the country into chaos. Thomas Cook has decided to bring holidaymakers back to the UK after a 90-day state of emergency was declared by Gambian President Yahya Jammeh – just two days before he was set to step aside. The latest stunt by President Yahya Jammeh is the latest in a string of attempts to extend his 22-year reign in office. The President, who refused to step down after losing the election earlier this month,

They are some of the biggest names in the Republican national security firmament, veterans of past GOP administrations who say, if called upon by President-elect Donald Trump, they stand ready to serve their country again. But their phones aren’t ringing. Their entreaties to Trump Tower in New York have mostly gone unanswered. In Trump world, these establishment all-stars say they are “PNG” — personae non gratae. Their transgression was signing one or both of two public “Never Trump” letters during the campaign, declaring they would not vote for Trump and calling his candidacy a danger to the nation. One letter,

A growing group of Democratic lawmakers will boycott President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration Friday as a protest of Trump’s worldview and his criticism of civil rights icon John Lewis, congressman of Georgia. There are now more than 30 House Democrats — 31, at last count — who have declared that they will not attend the inauguration on Capitol Hill this week. The number rose sharply after Trump tweeted Saturday that Lewis is “all talk, talk, talk” and should “finally focus on the burning and crime infested inner-cities.” Lewis, who sees Trump’s Nov. 8 win as illegitimate because of Russia’s alleged interference

President-elect Donald Trump will be the least popular man to take the oath of office in four decades – and he enters the White House with a popularity rating just half of what Barack Obama´s was eight years ago. Trump scored an approval rating of just 40 percent in a new CNN / ORC poll. His approval rating was identical in an ABC News / Washington Post poll. Trump doesn´t appear to won over converts through his handling of the transition period. Disapproval of his transition handling has jumped to 52 per cent in the CNN poll, an increase of 7 points from
