What has happened to #englandrugby  ? This is a pale shadow of the team that so brilliantly destroyed New Zealand. They’ll need to do something very different, like stop the basic errors. S. Africa defence fantastic. #ENGvRSA 

2007 #South African World Cup captain John Smit: "To 57 million people in a brand-new South Africa, for a team that used to represent segregation & now represents unity, to be led by a black African man for the first time is more significant than anyone could imagine.” #RWCFinal 

30 years ago I reported the fall of the Berlin Wall. Early morning 24 hours later & we were 1 of just 2 camera crews to find the 1st section being pulled down. It was astonishing. Hard to recapture what this meant. Such excitement. My report:

A fine obituary Martin. It does him justice- and more.

#Gaza conflict may have benefited #Hamas , #IslamicJihad  & Israel. Hamas saw its rival clipped, a rogue commander killed & avoided full war. IsJihad boosted its standing on the Gaza street. Israel killed c25 militants, no deaths at home.Civilians including children paid the price.

Israel's army admits killing 8 civilians from one family in an airstrike in #Gaza  on Wednesday, including 5 children. "We thought the house was empty" says the Army. The family were sheep herders, not Islamic Jihad militants.

Prince Andrew on why he stayed at home of convicted paedophile #Epstein  “It was a convenient was definitely the wrong thing to do. But at the time I felt it was the honourable & right thing to do & my judgment was probably coloured by my tendency to be too honourable”

This is not going down well in the court of public opinion, never mind among #Espstein  ’s victims. Not a word from #dukeofyork  on their suffering. Many on his “honourable” character. His PR chief who advised against doing this interview resigned with good reason.


If this isn’t an endorsement of ethnic cleansing, what is? “They had to have it cleaned out” says @realDonaldTrump  of the Turks desire to get rid of Kurds from their Southern border.

Kurds now holding their own news conference on death of #Baghdadi  saying they began sharing Intell on the #ISIS  leader with the US 5 months ago.

I’m stunned at how little coverage there is on , and other British media of the killing of a journalist, a British citizen, shot dead on a British street by a gunman attacking police. It was in Derry, not London. Metropolitan elite should be ashamed.

Huge security issue as Larry the Downing St. cat shelters under Donald Trump’s limo ‘’the Beast’ & refuses to move. #TrumpinUK

I’m sure this Tweet is violating Twitter’s rules. As a regular citizen, try posting this about someone and see what happens- I suspect your account would be suspended. Twitter?

So this is NOT new- Summit agreement.... "Reaffirming the April 27, 2018 Panmunjom Declaration, the DPRK commits to work towards the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula." REAFFIRMING. TO WORK TOWARDS... This is an intention only.
