The thing that really worried me about this was the lack of outrage that there was genuinely coming from the continent because I think they've stopped being outraged by Boris by laughing at him. At a time when what we really need is a good team pursuing Britain's best interests, he's a distraction. Chris Grayling? Anybody that hopes Boris is going to turn to the grey man spouting official speak is going to be sadly disappointed.

By Dick Guttman (excerpted from his memoir, Starflacker: Inside the Golden Age of Hollywood ) One question which is chatted up in Hollywood at this crucial waiting-for-the-Oscar-noms time of the year is "do the Golden Globes awarding influence, foretell or in any other way impact the names and films which will decorate the nominations list? (to be read out on January 24 this year) There are usually some overlaps and also some Hollywood Foreign Press Association winners who don't make the Oscar countdown at all. In 1980 one Globe awardee came in from such deep left field, an achievement not vaguely on the minds or tongues of Oscar electors, that there was instant scandal when it was announced. It drew such wrath that there was question if the award show would be telecast the following year. The recent passing of super-best-selling "Exorcist" and Oscar-winning screenwriter (for the adaptation of his book) William Peter Blatty brings that all-but-forgotten Golden Globe controversy to mind.

”— Professor Neil Postman Donald Trump no longer needs to launch Trump TV . He’s already the star of his own political reality show. Americans have a voracious appetite for TV entertainment, and the Trump reality show—guest starring outraged Democrats with a newly awakened conscience for immigrants and the poor, power-hungry Republicans eager to take advantage of their return to power, and a hodgepodge of other special interest groups with dubious motivesfeeds that appetite for titillating, soap opera drama . After all, who needs the insults, narcissism and power plays that are hallmarks of reality shows such as Celebrity Apprentice or Keeping Up with the Kardashians when you can have all that and more delivered up by the likes of Donald Trump and his cohorts? Yet as John Lennon reminds us, “nothing is real,” especially not in the world of politics.

PETALING JAYA: Lawyers and non-governmental organisations are outraged with a move by Terengganu Religious Affairs Department (JHEAT) that it may extend its anti-vice enforcement to passengers in vehicles, such as cars. Lawyers for Liberty representative Latheefa Koya said there is no offence under syariah law for two unmarried people to be together in a room. Also, in Malaysia the term "khalwat" (close proximity) has been misunderstood and connected to the act of adultery that requires four witnesses. "The word 'khalwat' has been misinterpreted from its Arabic origin, which means 'to be alone to contemplate' as our Prophet Muhammad had done. "Also, in Selangor, the meaning of 'khalwat' is not confined to two persons being alone but there must be proof that they are 'dalam keadaan mencurigakan' (in a suspicious manner). "The onus then lies on the enforcement officer to define the 'suspicious' manner.

By Alicia McDermott The UK Department for Transport has announced major plans to transform the A303 highway. This highway is the one which runs alongside the world-famous site of Stonehenge. Their plans are to improve traffic in the area as well as change the appearance and feel of the site by building a tunnel under the megaliths and doing away with the current road. However, many historians, archaeologists, and ancient history enthusiasts are shocked and outraged by this proposal. They assert that the tunnel could wreak havoc on unknown archaeological sites which may be located nearby. Stonehenge is one of the most famous prehistoric structures in the world. The megaliths draw in thousands of tourists every year who marvel at the enigmatic site. The stone circle has been studied by scientists, archaeologists, and historians for centuries, however the exact purpose of the monument is still uncertain.

How is the next leader of the free world spending his first few days in office? By going on vacation, of course! While there are countless things to be outraged about, Stephen Colbert took the President-elect to task for this particular excess last night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert . According to Trump, he doesn't "want to be signing and get it mixed up with lots of celebration." Ah yes, the classic story of the American president who was so overwhelmed with joy he just couldn't sit down to sign a bill.

They may have had full pints at their fingertips, but the boys preferred something a little less alcoholic and their decision to leave their beverages unattended has left viewers baffled. Finn invited Kasim over to his and said: "Look, I'm not even that hungry. Do you just want a coffee back at mine?" Kasim replied: "Yeah, after the lousy morning I've had, I'd like that."

Victims families and support groups were outraged yesterday as the international underwater search for Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 was suspended, nearly three years after it vanished without a trace over the Indian Ocean. The leaders of the search, Malaysia, China and Australia, jointly decided to call it a day after scouring 120,000 sq km of open ocean, at a cost of US$135 million, to no avail. Despite every effort using the best science available, cutting edge technology, as...

“I’ve wondered for the last four or five years as these cases have taken on a greater prominence, why the media hasnt been outraged. Sources are your bread and butter,” said Bob Muse, one of Morison’s attorneys. “I guess the outrage of the Morison time frame has come and gone. The media bears some responsibility for that in being complicit.” Pozen noted Clinton’s grant of the pardon to Morison came as a new administration was about to be sworn in, raising the possibility the outgoing president was trying to set the stage for his successor. The Columbia professor said a similar dynamic could color Obama’s last-minute clemency calls. “In his pardon and commutation decisions at the end here, President Obama may have in mind the kind of atmosphere that he’ll be bequeathing to Trump and perhaps wanting to again keep the leak channels flowing as Trump comes in, with some symbolic or more-than-symbolic move,” Pozen added.

Thanks very much. The family of a man killed by a van driver who'd been using his phone to send a text message say they're outraged he's been allowed to appeal against his nine-year prison sentence. Lee Martin was cycling on the A31 near Bentley in August 2015 when he was hit by a van travelling at 60 miles an hour.

My dad immigrated here 20 years ago from England, and Im not a citizen so I couldnt vote. I have decided to apply for U.S. citizenship after this election. It feels like a moral prerogative now. The march feels, absolutely, like something I have an obligation to participate in, not just as a woman, not just as an immigrant, but as a young adult who is frightened for the future of our country. Ive never felt brave enough to say before, No, America is my country, too. But now I will be there, wearing a pussy cap a friend of mine is knitting, to stand up to injustice. Im a woman, Im Jewish and Im a social worker who works with a lot of survivors of sexual trauma. ― Allison, 40, N.Y. Im marching for many reasons. The main one is that Im outraged. Im a woman, Im Jewish and Im a social worker who works with a lot of survivors of sexual trauma, and I know that this election has been an ongoing re-traumatization for a lot of them.
