UK PM ‘Boris Johnson’ under fire as new lockdown looms for England

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday defended his belated decision to impose a second coronavirus lockdown as critics claimed he could have saved "thousands" of lives by acting sooner.

"I am truly sorry for the anguish these measures will impose, particularly for businesses that had just got...

On the war against insurgency, the President said things were a lot better, with the disabuse of the minds of the people on the true philosophy of Boko Haram, and the main challenge being in the area of resettling displaced people, which is being tackled frontally. “We have a long hist...

Iran Rejects UK’s Call For ‘Trump Deal’ To Replace Nuclear Accord

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani has dismissed UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson's call for a new "Trump deal" to replace the 2015 nuclear agreement. Mr Johnson said he recognised that Mr Trump saw the accord as "flawed" and suggested he could renegotiate it. Mr Rouhani warned that "all Trump has done is break promises". He also criticised the UK, France and Germany for triggering the nuclear deal's dispute mechanism after Iran breached key commitments. President Trump abandoned the nuclear deal in 2018 and reinstated US sanctions on Iran to try to force it to negotiate a new agreement that would place indefinite curbs on its nuclear programme and also halt its development of ballistic missiles. After the Trump administration increased the pressure on Iran in May 2019, the coun...

Court Rules British MI5 Agents Can Murder, Kidnap And Torture

Britain’s domestic intelligence service MI5 can authorize its agents to engage in criminal activities, potentially including murder, kidnap and torture, a London court ruled, as Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s new government prepares to overhaul espionage laws. Judges on the Investigatory Powers Tribunal declared in a majority decision that MI5 has the power to permit informants to operate in criminal groups, even if the policy itself confers no legal immunity. The case focused on powers that were only disclosed last year by then-Prime Minister Theresa May. “The case raises one of the most profound issues which can face a democratic society governed by the rule of law, Judge Rabinder Singh said in the ruling. The decision comes as Johnson seeks to update laws to bring them in l...
