  • Roger Moore Denies Racism Over Bond Comments

    James Bond actor Sir Roger Moore has been forced to deny accusations of racism because he said he wanted the next bond to be "English English". Some have interpreted his comments as suggesting that Sir Roger believes that Idris Elba, who has been widely touted as a candidate for the role, should not play the famous spy. Sir Roger said that the accusation of racism may have resulted from the true meaning of his comments being "lost in translation".

  • Kate and William's 'daughter' given direct right to throne in RADICAL new rules

    A radical shake-up which came into force after Australia brought its laws into line with the others, means that if the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have a girl she can no longer be superseded in the line of succession by a younger brother. Under the changes in the Succession to the Crown Act, a member of the Royal Family can now also marry a Roman Catholic and become monarch but Catholics are still banned from being King or Queen. The new law also replaces the outdated Royal Marriages Act 1772 and means that only the first six in line to the throne need the Queen's consent to marry - replacing a long-standing requirement affecting hundreds of distant royal relations who are descendants of George II. Princess Eugenie, who is seventh in line to the throne, no longer needs her grandmother's permission to wed, while Princess Beatrice still needs the Queen's consent - but only if she gets engaged before the arrival of William and Kate's second child, after which Beatrice drops down to seventh in line.

  • Crash co-pilot's personality 'serious lead' but not only one: French investigator

    The personality of a co-pilot suspected of deliberately flying a Germanwings passenger jet into a mountainside in the Alps is a "serious lead" in the inquiry but not the only one, a French investigator said Saturday. "We have a certain number of elements which allow us to make progress on this lead, which is a serious lead but which can't be the only one," police chief Jean-Pierre Michel told AFP in the western German city of Duesseldorf. The investigation so far has not turned up a "particular element" in the life of co-pilot Andreas Lubitz which could explain his alleged action in the ill-fated Airbus plane, he added.

  • Isis war on Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi is huge PR own goal

    It is rare that you find similarities between the leafy boulevards and smart cafes of Jerusalem's Jaffa Street and the hectic, traffic-snarled chaos of Ramallah's Al Manara Square, but on El Clasico matchdays the flags in both Israel and Palestine are the same – blue, red and white. The one thing (perhaps the only thing) that Israelis and Palestinians of all stripes can agree on is a love for either Real Madrid or Barcelona, and the few times a year that the Spanish titans meet are the times when the heavy and often ugly tension that so often hangs in the air in both cities is refreshingly absent. A love for Spanish football is something that applies throughout the Middle East and whether you are a Westerner, Arab, Kurd or Jew, you will be expected to come down on one side of the El Clasico divide, and be prepared to defend your choice forcefully and convincingly.

  • German airline could face 'unlimited' damages for Alps crash

    Lufthansa could face "unlimited" compensation claims for the crash that killed 150 people in the French alps and it would be difficult, even counterproductive, for the German carrier to try to avoid liability, experts said Friday. To avoid liability, a carrier has to prove that the crash wasn't due to "negligence or other wrongful act" by its employees, according to Article 21 of the 1999 Montreal Convention. Germanwings is a subsidiary of Lufthansa.
