Since Harry and Meghan’s exit from their royal roles last month, Queen Elizabeth made her first official appearance. The Queen visited the Royal Airforce (RAF) base in Marham to see the demonstrations and meet with trainees.
European Union’s draft mandate for negotiations suggested that the EU and Britain’s future partnership seems ambitious with zero tariffs and quotas and commitments to ensure open and fair competition. The 33-page document had only one section marked in bold and that was regarding the demand for a level playing field.
Boris Johnson said he would act to stop the early release from prison of convicted terrorists following a street attack by an Islamist militant. Emergency legislation preventing convicted terrorists from automatically being released from prison midway through their sentence shall be introduced by Britain.
Republican U.S. Senator Marco Rubio said he was bringing Rushan Abbas, an advocate for the rights of China’s Uighur Muslim minority, as his guest for President Donald Trump’s annual State of the Union address on Tuesday.
