From International Business Times:
US President Donald Trump is keen to use the Queen’s royal carriage to travel down The Mall to Buckingham Palace.
I thought pumpkins turned into coaches, not ride in them! Anyway, here’s what Twitler is imagining. Wait until Prince Philip finds out that Twitler expects him to caddy for him.

From Channel 4 News:
Conspicuous for her shock of curly red hair, it has never been easy for Rebekah Brooks to elude the limelight.
The 43-year-old became the youngest person to edit a national newspaper when she took over in 2000 at the helm of the News of the World – the newspaper where she had begun her journalistic career 11 years earlier.
[I]n November 2005, […] Brooks […] had been arrested after an alleged assault on her husband.
In the meantime she had been promoted by News Corporation boss Rupert Murdoch, who owns the News International stable, to editorship of The Sun, Britain’s biggest-selling newspaper.

From The Guardian:
Labour‘s election campaign was in disarray tonight after Gordon Brown was forced to apologise to a pensioner and lifelong party supporter whom he had described as “a bigoted woman” for questioning him over the scale of immigration from eastern Europe.
His contemptuous dismissal of Gillian Duffy, made in private but caught by a live broadcast feed, again raised questions about his volatile character and, more importantly, whether the Labour core vote would be repelled by his apparent indifference to their concerns.
Morale in the Labour campaign slumped as even some of Brown’s closest aides vented their fury at him, with one describing him as “a pathetic blame shifter”. Others voiced concern that it would appear that he was two-faced.

From THE PLATFORM at stltoday (Editorial):
As chairman of the House Republican Health Care Solutions Group, Rep. Roy Blunt, R-Springfield [MO], knows a thing or two about health care. But some of what he knows just isn’t true.
“I’m 59,” Mr. Blunt said last week during a meeting with Post-Dispatch reporters and editors. “In either Canada or Great Britain, if I broke my hip, I couldn’t get it replaced.”
We fact-checked that. At least 63 percent of hip replacements performed in Canada last year and two-thirds of those done in England were on patients age 65 or older. More than 1,200 in Canada were done on people older than 85.

Speaking before the Minnesota Republican State Central Committee this weekend, Norm Coleman assured those gathered that his unwillingness to recognize the recount tally and a District Court election ruling has nothing to do with him, his political career, or even the Republican Party.
Rather, his refusal to acknowledge reality is due to his love of America.
