Head of the Armed Forces slaps down Dominic Raab over claim military intelligence failed in Afghanistan as Foreign Secretary's popularity plummets among Tory grassroots

Image
The head of the UK's armed forces today took a swipe at Dominic Raab as he denied there was a failure of military intelligence in Afghanistan.   General Sir Nick Carter, the Chief of the Defence Staff, said 'everybody got it wrong' over the pace of the Taliban takeover in the country.  But he said 'many of the assessments' suggested the Afghan government 'wouldn't last the course of the year'.  His comments will be seen as a rebuke to the Foreign Secretary who told MPs last week that the Government's central assessment was that it was 'unlikely' Kabul would fall in 2021.  Mr Raab has faced criticism over his handling of the Afghanistan crisis, with his political opponents having claimed he was 'missing in action'.  A new Conservative Home poll of Tory party members has now suggested his popularity has taken a major hit.  The Foreign Secretary was third from top in the website's Cabinet League Table last month, with a net satisfact

Moment Boris Johnson tells Tory activists in 2019 he doesn’t want Nicola Sturgeon ‘anywhere near’ Cop26 amid claims No10 wants to cut her out to prevent her using climate summit to advertise independence campaign

Image
This is the moment Boris Johnson told Tory activists in 2019 that he wanted to exclude Nicola Sturgeon from the Cop26 climate change summit.  Speaking at an event at the Conservative Party conference, the Prime Minister said: 'I don't mind seeing a Saltire or two but I want to see the Union flag and I don't want to see Nicola Sturgeon anywhere near it.'   Video footage of the PM's remarks resurfaced as it was claimed Downing Street is seeking to cut Ms Sturgeon out of the summit to prevent her using it as an advert for her Scottish independence campaign.  Leaked messages suggested advisers at Number 10 and the Cabinet Office have been plotting to sideline the role of Scotland's First Minster at the global gathering which is set to take place in Glasgow in November.  According to meeting notes and WhatsApp messages, strategists have been trying to work out how to prevent the summit from becoming an 'advert' for Scottish independence.   Advisers at No 10

Covid sceptic begs Australians to get vaccinated after his mum spent nine weeks in ICU with a feeding tube - and now she needs to learn to walk again

Image
A Covid sceptic says his perspective on the virus changed after his mother spent nine weeks in the ICU with a feeding tube - 22 days of which she was in a coma.  Damian Cassaniti's mother, Tina, from Five Dock in Sydney's inner west regained consciousness in mid-August with doctors telling her she was lucky to be alive.  The 72-year-old has no recollection of her mammoth fight with the Delta variant of Covid and at first thought she had been paralysed in a car crash when she woke and couldn't feel her arms and legs.  'My mother is progressing well. She's been in the hospital for nine weeks now, they're looking at another two to three weeks before she can leave,' Mr Cassaniti told Daily Mail Australia. The grandmother has regained her ability to speak but now must learn to walk again with the help of physiotherapy because her muscles are so diminished.  'She had her feeding tube removed on Monday and had her first proper meal, so  that's good,' Mr

Boris Johnson facing Cabinet revolt over 'idiotic' National Insurance hike: Tax burden could reach 70 YEAR high as senior Tories warn rise will spark 'significant backlash' and hit millions of young workers in the pocket

Image
Boris Johnson is facing a mounting Tory backlash over his plan to hike National Insurance to pay for social care reform as he was warned it will cause 'significant damage' to the Conservative Party and could see the tax burden hit a 70 year high. The Prime Minister is expected to announce a new NHS and Social Care Levy this week to provide a funding boost to the health service and overhaul help for the elderly.  But the levy is expected to consist of an increase of at least one per cent on employee and employer National Insurance contributions , hitting millions of workers in the pocket.   Ministers, MPs and Conservative grandees have all warned Mr Johnson not to go ahead with the 'idiotic' move because it will break a key 2019 Tory election manifesto pledge not to raise taxes.   There are also growing fears of a hammering at the ballot box at future elections from younger workers who will be disproportionately affected by the hike. Lord Hammond, the Tory former chancel

colorado proposes a new electoral map that could oust trump ally lauren boebert from congress as her home is lumped into blue districts

Image
Lauren Boebert could lose her seat in the House of Representative as a new proposed Colorado district map moves the congresswoman's home into a more liberal district currently represented by Democratic Representative Joe Neguse. The nonpartisan Colorado Independent Redistricting Commissions released its first map outlining the new congressional districts based on the 2020 Census Bureau data. It previously released a sketch in June based off population estimates. The new map would lump in the entire northern part of the current 3rd district, represented by Boebert, into Neguse's 2nd district. Not only would this move a huge group of Boebert's constituents into a blue district, it would also mean Boebert's home is now located in the 2nd district. The Constitution only requires House members to live in the state they represent, not the exact district, so Boebert could decide to run again in the 3rd District. If she plans to run in 2022 for the 2nd district seat, however, B
