It may never be known whether Donald Trump truly believed he won the 2020 US election, or if the last two weeks have been an extended face-saving exercise. Some senior Republicans, who have remained publicly silent, viewed the president's legal assault on the electoral system as akin to a tantrum, or to him working through the various stages of grief. Whatever his motivation, the president's decision on Monday to accept the formal transition process marked the end of an extraordinary interregnum. It began on Nov 7 when all major US television networks "called" the election for Joe Biden. At this point, it is traditional for one candidate to concede, although it is simply a custom. Instead, Mr Trump began making allegations of widespread voter fraud, and assembled a legal team to overturn counts in various battleground states. Three dozen cases were filed in six states. The vast majority were rejected by a judge, or withdrawn. Not a single case of voter fraud was upheld by a court. One legal expert described the strategy as like "throwing spaghetti at the wall to see what sticks, which I tell my law students is never a good strategy." Mr Trump became increasingly frustrated with his legal team. But the frustration went both ways, and several lawyers withdrew from representing him in court. Rudy Giuliani, Mr Trump's personal lawyer, seized control. His all-out attack culminated in a bizarre, hour-long press conference on Nov 19. The claims Mr Giuliani made about voter fraud were overshadowed when black hair dye rolled down his cheeks. At the same event Sidney Powell, another firebrand lawyer, made claims including that voting software had been created at the direction of late Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez. Mr Giuliani later distanced himself from her, saying Ms Powell was "not a member of the Trump Legal Team". Then, on Monday, a number of things collided to force Mr Trump's hand. Rush Limbaugh, the massively popular conservative radio talk show host, and friend of the president, issued a rare attack.

A Cambridge University tutor has responded to a huge, "ugly" parking permit pole erected right outside his home - by decorating it with a clock and bird feeders. Gordon Chesterman and his wife Dee, both 62, were shocked when they looked out their front window one day last month - and saw the unsightly black pole blocking their view. But rather than complain, Gordon, a senior proctor at Cambridge University's St Edmund's College, decided to take matters into his own hands in act of what he called "social disobedience". This video was shot on the 23rd November 2020.

Sir Andy Murray believes Lewis Hamilton definitely deserves to be knighted for his achievements both on and off the Formula One track, though says he isn’t in favour of sportspeople receiving the honour generally. Mercedes star Hamilton equalled the great Michael Schumacher by sealing his seventh world title in Turkey earlier this month, having also recently passed the German in terms of overall grand prix wins. The 35-year-old has also campaigned tirelessly for racial equality and publicly pushed for greater diversity in motorsport.

Rishi Sunak will on Wednesday unveil a £4.3 billion New Deal-style package to get one million people back into work amid warnings that unemployment could continue rising until next summer. The Chancellor will promise that no one will be left "without hope or opportunity" after redundancies reached record levels. The Office for Budget Responsibility, the Treasury's watchdog, is expected to predict that unemployment, currently at 4.8 per cent, could go as high as eight per cent by the summer – after the end of the furlough scheme – before it starts to fall. The OBR is also expected to forecast that the economy will have shrunk by 10 per cent by the end of this year – the worst performance in 300 years. The Resolution Foundation think tank believes the OBR will forecast a permanent reduction of three per cent in the UK's GDP due to the economic "scarring" of coronavirus – the equivalent of £1,000 per person. Public service spending is on course to reach 60 per cent of GDP this financial year, a level not seen since the Second World War, with the cost of Covid predicted to rise to £400 billion by the end of the year. Mr Sunak's decision to find billions of pounds for jobs support in Wednesday's Spending Review will be seen as an acknowledgement that the unemployment crisis has a long way to go. The Chancellor will pledge to "create and support" hundreds of thousands of jobs through tens of billions of pounds of investment in infrastructure, including roads, houses, railways and cycle lanes. A £2.9 billion Restart scheme will help the long-term unemployed to find jobs by giving them "intensive, tailored" support to meet their individual circumstances. Another £1.4 billion will be allocated to Job Centres, helping the short-term unemployed back into work. Mr Sunak will also extend the apprenticeship hiring incentive – which pays employers £2,000 for every new apprentice they hire – to the end of March, when the new tier system of Covid restrictions will end. The jobs schemes will effectively replace the furlough scheme, which finishes on March 31. He is expected to announce a freeze on public sector pay to help claw back some of the cost of Covid support, as well as reducing foreign aid spending from 0.7 per cent of national income to 0.5 per cent.

Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen on Tuesday vowed to defend the democratic island's sovereignty with the construction of a new fleet of domestically-developed submarines, a key project supported by the United States to counter neighbouring China. Taiwan, which China claims as its own territory, has been for years working to revamp its submarine force, some of which date back to World War Two, and is no match for China's fleet, which includes vessels capable of launching nuclear weapons. At a ceremony to mark the start of construction of a new submarine fleet in the southern port city of Kaohsiung, Tsai called the move a "historic milestone" for Taiwan's defensive capabilities after overcoming "various challenges and doubts".

Russia said on Tuesday one of its warships caught and chased off a U.S. destroyer operating illegally in its territorial waters in the Sea of Japan, but the U.S. Navy denied wrongdoing by its vessel and accused Moscow of making excessive maritime claims. The Admiral Vinogradov, a Russian destroyer, verbally warned USS John S. McCain, a U.S. Navy guided-missile destroyer, and threatened to ram it in order to force it to leave the area, prompting it to return to neutral waters, Moscow said.
