  • James May hits low gear on YouTube

    With Top Gear off the television and his next career move uncertain, James May has taken to playing the recorder with his days off. The BBC presenter struck a sombre note as he played Greensleeves on the woodwind instrument in a YouTube video posted on his newly created "JM unemployment tube" channel. Poking fun at his career dilemma, he called the video "Greensleeves with a hangover" and added in a note: "Performed by the jobless James May 'pon the descant recorder." The jokey video was a hit with viewers with one watcher writing on the website that it is the "best Youtube channel in the world".

  • Football - Boss accepts Nichols dismissal

  • 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its laws into line with the others, means that if the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have a girl she can no longer be superseded in the line of succession by a younger brother.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 The new law also replaces the outdated Royal Marriages Act 1772 and means that only the first six in line to the throne need the Queen's consent to marry - replacing a long-standing requirement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.

  • 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.

  • Emotional appeal after air crash

    The father of a British victim of the Germanwings air disaster has made an emotional appeal for the 150 dead not to be forgotten and demanded airlines be more "transparent". Philip Bramley, whose son Paul, 28, was one of the three Britons on board the Dusseldorf-bound Airbus A320 when it crashed in the French Alps, said co-pilot Andreas Lubitz was "ill" and his motivation for bringing it down was "irrelevant".

  • 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.

  • Abbas says he doubts Israel vow to free Palestinian funds

    Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas said Saturday he doubted Israel's willingness to unblock hundreds of millions of dollars in unpaid taxes a day after it promised to do so. "They've announced they will release the money, but so far they have unlocked nothing," Abbas told an Arab League summit in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt. "Maybe they will impose a thousand and one conditions before doing so and guaranteeing not to freeze the funds again." On Friday, Israel said it would release hundreds of millions of dollars in tax funds it has withheld from the Palestinian Authority as a punitive measure over its move to join the International Criminal Court (ICC).
