'Incompetent' Boris Johnson is to blame for 15,000 care home deaths, says Labour's deputy leader Angela Rayner in stinging attack on the PM

Image
Angela Rayner last night accused Boris Johnson of 'abandoning' care homes to their fate as she blamed his 'failure and incompetence' for the thousands who had died.  In a stinging attack on the PM, Labour's deputy leader - who was a care worker herself before she entered politics - lambasted him for reneging on his promise to sort out the social care crisis.  Speaking on the weekend before Labour's virtual conference, she accused the PM of demeaning his office by seeking to blame care home staff for the spread of coronavirus.  Angela Rayner, pictured, last night accused Boris Johnson of 'abandoning' care homes to their fate as she blamed his 'failure and incompetence' for the thousands who had died The Prime Minister, pictured, was lambasted for reneging on his promise to sort out the social care crisis And she said it was a 'moral outrage' that a half of home helps and carers earned less than a living wage and often could not even acce

Is this the most dangerous woman in Britain? Suspended nurse Kate Shemirani doesn't believe Covid exists, says its symptoms are linked to 5G mobile phone technology... and claims a vaccine is a plot to change our DNA, writes BARBARA DAVIES

Kate Shemirani strides into the hotel where we meet with such confidence that, despite the signs insisting masks must be worn, nobody challenges her lack of face covering. By the time the receptionist has emerged from behind the desk, the 54-year-old suspended nurse has already swept off down a corridor in her strappy white stilettos. Had she been stopped, goodness only knows what kind of kerfuffle would have ensued. For anti-vaxxer Shemirani is pretty forthright when it comes to imparting her views on the global Covid-19 pandemic — or 'scamdemic' as she calls it. Over the past few weeks, this glossy mother-of-four from East Sussex has emerged as the new face of the UK's anti-vaccination movement. At the end of last month, she joined conspiracy theorists David Icke and Piers Corbyn, older brother of former Labour leader Jeremy, at a protest against coronavirus restrictions and plans for a Covid-19 vaccine. A couple of weeks ago, she popped up again outside Downing Street wh

Former MP Sir Hugo Swire – husband of Tory diarist - is accused of 'lewd behaviour in a taxi' with health minister Nadine Dorries

Hugo Swire faced fresh allegations last night after he was accused of 'lewd' behaviour in a taxi with health minister Nadine Dorries. Friends of Miss Dorries said the former Tory MP and minister asked her to 'slip her hand inside his coat' on their way to a formal dinner in Mayfair. The old Etonian is said to have bragged to her: 'Come on Nadine, I promise you that a girl like you will never have felt anything quite like this before.' It is claimed that Sir Hugo was not deterred when Miss Dorries 'recoiled' in shock.

Game of drones: Now airborne parcel delivery gets its own air corridor as new air traffic system set up for flying postal service

Image
Ambitions of an airborne postal service have moved a step closer due to a 'flight corridor' being created near Reading.  The five mile long aerial highway, the first commercial route of its type in the world, will be set up south of the Berkshire town by the end of the year, according to the Times. Drone pilots will be able to to control them beyond their line of sight, which is not normally the case under existing regulations. A new air traffic control system for unmanned devices will monitor the corridor and feed automated instructions to the drones to keep them away from others or change path if they're in danger of crashing. The corridor, a third of a mile in width will operate in the same normal airspace used by commercial jets, helicopters and light aircraft. Ambitions of an airborne postal service have moved a step closer due to a 'flight corridor' being created near Reading The move still needs to be rubber-stamped by the Civil Aviation Authority but it hop

FBI agent who found Hillary Clinton's emails on Anthony Weiner's laptop says ‘immoral’ agency bosses sat on the discovery for a month and told him to ERASE his findings until he went direct to the US Attorney

Image
An FBI agent who found the messages that led to the Hillary Clinton email investigation being reopened days before the 2016 election said the way the bureau handled the case was 'not ethically or morally right'. John Robertson feared he would be made a 'scapegoat' when he found the new emails less than two months before voting day, in the wake of DailyMail.com's revelation that Anthony Weiner, whose wife Huma Abedin was Clinton's top aide, was sexting an underage girl. Robertson watched nervously as the bureau did nothing for a month until he went outside the chain of command and spoke with the US Attorney's office overseeing the case. The only advice from his bosses was to erase his office computer, which meant leaving no record of his investigations, a new book says. As Robertson put it: 'To this day don't understand what the hell went wrong', the Washington Post reported.  The claims add another layer of intrigue to the investigation of Clinto

Tiffany Trump calls Ruth Bader Ginsburg a ‘trailblazer for women in the legal field’ and praises liberal justice's ‘surprising’ friendship with conservative Antonin Scalia after her death at 87

Tiffany Trump praised Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg for being a 'trailblazer for women in the legal field' and recalled her close relationship with Justice Antonin Scalia in a tribute on Friday.  The Supreme Court confirmed that Ginsburg died surrounded by her family at her home in Washington D.C. following complications with metastatic pancreatic cancer. She was 87.  Ginsburg, who served for 27 years on the highest court of the land, had battled several bouts of cancer after first being diagnosed in 2009.  Social media quickly flooded with tributes and condolences for Ginsburg, including a series of tweets from President Trump's youngest daughter. Tiffany, a recent graduate from Georgetown Law School, first shared photos of Ginsburg on Twitter and said she watched her speak during a 2017 lecture at the university.

Nazi valley of death: 33,000 Ukrainian Jews were killed in just 48 hours in 1941 - paving the way for the Holocaust… yet it is only now, thanks to a Scotland Yard investigator, that the hideous truth of the Babyn Yar Massacre has emerged 

Image
Clutching her two-week-old son in her bare arms, a young mother stared down into a ravine where a mass of naked corpses lay tangled together. She stood among countless other Jewish women and children stretched along the edge of the gorge as far as the eye could see. All had been forced to strip before being marched to this godforsaken place and they knew that in a few moments they would form part of the grotesque human collage below. Recalling the scene years later, at his trial, one SS commander spoke of the ‘indescribable wailing’ echoing across the valley. Between September 29 and 30, 1941, an estimated 33,771 Jews — almost all women, children, or elderly people — were herded to the canyon, 150 metres long, in the Ukrainian city of Kiev, where they were summarily slaughtered, then covered with soil and rubble As a team of Nazi assassins moved along the line with their fast-action pistols, the mother was despatched with a single bullet to the back of her head. We will never know whet

AFL star Majak Daw has been dropped from North Melbourne just weeks after he returned to the game following a bridge fall that left him learning to walk again.  Daw is one of 11 players let go from the club's roster this week in an overhaul following a poor 2020 season which sees them in contention for the wooden spoon.   The first Sudanese player to debut in the AFL in 2013, Daw played 54 games before a fall from Melbourne's Bolte Bridge in 2018 sidelined him for two years.  Daw (pictured with partner)  is one of 11 players let go from the club's roster this week in an overhaul following a poor 2020 season which sees them in contention for the wooden spoon  Ben Jacobs (pictured with partner) was also shown the door in the dramatic shake-up at the club  The 29-year-old, who stands at almost two metres tall, suffered hip and pelvic injuries in the fall and had two 15cm metal rods inserted in his hips.  'I played one final, and I think I played 54 games in 11 years, so it
