Those who think that the people who brought the action and the Judges who found in favour of the Complainants simply do not understand: if they want to blame someone, blame whoever stuffed up Bill that provided for a Referendum.
US President Donald Trump issued a number of diktats (sorry, Executive Orders) on his first full day in office. But one is likely to greater impact : a blanket freeze on recruitment at all federal offices.
Listening to Bernie Ecclestone trying to swerve between keeping commercial confidences and his natural desire to talk to the press at the end of last season was an object lesson in how to tell smiling lies, or to tell such a deviant version of the truth that it might as well have been lies. There were two special examples: there were no negotiations for the sale of F1 and, when that was proved wrong, that Bernie would be in place at the new company for three years. That one was proved incorrect, yesterday, when the deal with Liberty Media was completed and Bernie's jobs were both taken over by someone else.
We've been trying to access the website at united.com for several minutes. Aside from a pop up about location, nothing else has responded. But what we do know from other media is that United was grounded by the FAA, apparently at the airline's request, for all domestic flights for a period of two hours. International flights were not affected.
People who turn up at US embassies around the world and want to see the Ambassador are in for a long wait: many ambassadors appointed under Obama have had the call from Trump's people. They said "you've been fired."
It's taken Theresa May months to pop her head up and make clear statements about the UK's exit strategy for separation from the EU. There have been hints, partial statements, but there have been no clear policy statements or expressions of exactly what the plan is. This week, she changed that.
And she demonstrated that, at last, she "gets it" so far as the LEAVE vote is concerned.
In this first of a series of highlights from the speech, we explain, with comments, where, on the May plan, the UK, the EU and much of the rest of the world is going.
The junk journalism that masquerades as content of legitimate interest but plays to the lowest common denominator and lurks at the bottom of the page to steal the time employers are paying for is becoming a major plague. It's time to call a halt to this odious practice which actively undermines the credibility of the news sites it so often appears on.
While it is always dangerous to base any legal analysis on general media reports, media are reporting a case which provides sufficient fact for a discussion of the principles involved. The case involves a member of staff at a branch of Tesco in Ireland who removed product from the premises and was dismissed but has been awarded substantial damages for unfair dismissal.
The group of nations that has been searching the oceans for signs of the lost Boeing 777 that was Malaysian Airlines MH370 say that they have taken all reasonable steps to locate the aircraft and have failed to find any signs of the crash site. There is no doubt that the aircraft has been lost, and little doubt over which ocean it was lost in. But that's all that can be said with any confidence, except that there has been almost no question raised over whether the aircraft itself might have had a fault.
The benefits that flow to Google, Bing, etc. from linking to illegal websites are substantial. So are the benefits gained by internet hosts, especially those providing anonymous or anonymising services for a fee (e.g. Cloudflare) and the internet domain registrars that facilitate the purchase and anonymisation of domains by criminals. In this article, we start the list of domains and those who benefit from providing services to them. Registered users can add their own examples of genuinely illegal websites in the comments.
So far, recounts in the US Presidential election have either been abandoned or resulted in an increase in the majority for Donald Trump. The allegations that Russians somehow infiltrated the voting systems in the USA remain entirely unproven. Today, the allegations are irritating but, ultimately, no different in principle to the tirade of false information on social media. Set that against the express and clear comments of a senior Israeli diplomat saying he would "take down" UK ministers and others in what should have caused a storm but didn't.
The continuing saga of South Korean president PARK Geun-Hye is gripping the South East Asian nation while the rest of the world looks on with mild interest and wonders just how many kinds of kimchi there are. To ignore it would be a mistake.
