LONDON (AP) — Senior British lawmakers are set to question Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Wednesday amid growing pressure to fire his closest adviser for allegedly flouting COVID-19 lockdown rules.

Five Points On The Very British Scandal Currently Engulfing A Top Boris Johnson Aide

Britons are in an uproar over an illicit road trip taken by Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s top aide while the country was under shutdown — a scandal that has echoes of the U.S.’s own COVID-19 culture warring, but that seems quaint by American standards. News broke last week that Dominic Cummings, Johnson’s senior adviser and a leading pro-Brexit campaigner, had driven from London to his parents’ home in Durham, making an additional pitstop while there — all while he potentially had COVID-19. ...

British Official Resigns After Boris Johnson Resists Firing Aide Over Lockdown Breach

LONDON (AP) — A junior British government minister quit on Tuesday over Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s failure to fire his top aide for allegedly breaching coronavirus lockdown rules. Johnson has stood by Dominic Cummings over his decision to drive 250 miles (400 kilometers) to his parents’ house at the end of March, despite a national order for people to remain at home. Cummings says he traveled so that extended family could care for his 4-year-old son if he and his wife, who both had suspected...

The United Kingdom's COVID-19 death toll surpassed 47,000 on Tuesday, a dire human cost that could define the premiership of Boris Johnson.

The UK is reviewing Huawei's role in its 5G network again, and it's a new sign it could still cave to US pressure

The UK will again review Huawei's role in building out its 5G mobile infrastructure after new US sanctions were announced earlier in May. Huawei had been given a limited role in providing kit for the UK's networks, in defiance of US pressure.  Reports also emerged this weekend that UK prime minister Boris Johnson will announce he will cut Huawei's role in the UK's network to zero by 2023.

Why should Joe Biden choose Kamala Harris for veep?

For months, California’s Democratic U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris has campaigned hard to convince presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joseph Biden he should make her his vice presidential running mate. The ever-ambitious, well-spoken and fast-on-her-feet Harris fits into many categories Biden openly seeks to match: She’s black, female and could appeal to foreign-born voters as the daughter of an immigrant. She would likely overwhelm the ever-meek current Vice President Mike Pence if and when t...

Suing Amazon will only feed greedy attorneys — and hurt consumers

Whenever disaster strikes, the fight against price gouging is certain to strike up, too. California, of course, is no exception. Last month, plaintiffs represented by the Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP law firm filed a class action lawsuit in California against Amazon, claiming the giant corporation violated price gouging laws in the state during the coronavirus. Regardless of the way you feel about price gouging in general, the fact remains that if Amazon loses the lawsuit, customers across th...

Boris Johnson the 'people’s politician' risks squandering his common touch in standing by Dominic Cummings

Say what you like about Boris Johnson, he is not what you would call a “misfit” or a “weirdo”. Unlike his non-conformist chief adviser Dominic Cummings, who once touted for such ‘oddballs’ to join No 10, the Prime Minister is as conventional as any of the 20 Old Etonians who have ended up in Downing Street. A little eccentric, perhaps, with his love of the Iliad and aversion to Mason Pearson products, but as his old Balliol philosophy don Jonathan Barnes put it: “Definitely a good egg.” Indeed c...

Keselowski wins NASCAR's longest race

The 600-miler on the U.S. Memorial Day weekend was already the longest race on the NASCAR calendar but on Sunday it went even longer after William Byron's spin with five laps to go set up a two-lap shootout for victory.

Lockdown restrictions to be eased, allowing more social contact and shops to reopen

Lockdown restrictions will be eased to allow greater social contact and the reopening of non-essential shops, Boris Johnson has suggested. On Sunday night, the Prime Minister promised to reveal details of less draconian measures – which could include more mixing between households – in the coming days. The lockdown rules were relaxed slightly a fortnight ago to allow members of one household to meet a maximum of one person from a different household in a public place, provided they remain two me...
