    Sir Cliff Richard warned finances may be made public during BBC court battle

    Sir Cliff Richard has been warned that details of his financial affairs may be revealed during a High Court battle with the BBC. During a preliminary hearing on Thursday, Mr Justice Mann said journalists could fairly argue that Sir Cliff's personal finances should not be kept from the public simply because he wants them to be. "An argument could be made that these arguments should not be held in complete secrecy simply because (Sir Cliff) wants to keep his financial affairs secret.

    The rebel MPs should be pleased with themselves – they are advocates of democracy

    To listen to some of the hysterical coverage of a modest assertion of democratic rights by dissident Tory MPs, one might think that some act of national betrayal had been committed by these rather herbivorous parliamentarians. All they wanted was some say over the terms of the deal the Government might secure. Unless it has some strange taste for public humiliation, the Government should drop its plan to enshrine the Brexit date in legislation, and, once again, allow Parliament to do what has been promised – to “take back control”.

    Six months on, Grenfell fire survivors weep at London memorial

    Poland's new PM sees punishment from Brussels coming

    Poland's new prime minister said on Thursday he expected the European Commission to launch an unprecedented punishment procedure against Warsaw next week after months of wrangling over the rule of law. Several thousand people gathered in Poland's largest towns on Thursday evening to protest against a judiciary system overhaul, while the upper chamber of parliament discussed the proposed legislation. Mateusz Morawiecki, who took over as Poland's premier this week, has defended the judicial changes pushed over two years by his predecessor from the same Law and Justice (PiS) party, saying they were necessary to heal the courts.

    'Bad news for our enemies': EU launches defence pact

    European Union nations, now unfettered by Britain's decision to quit, achieved a 70-year-old ambition on Thursday to integrate their defences, launching a pact between 25 EU governments to fund, develop and deploy armed forces together. European Council President Donald Tusk deemed the move "bad news for our enemies". First blocked by the French parliament in the 1950s and later by Britain, which feared creation of an EU army, the pact aims to end the squandering of billions of euros by splintered defence policies.

    North Korea: US naval blockade would be 'act of war'

    North Korea has warned the US would take a "dangerous and big step" towards nuclear war if it enforces a naval blockade. North Korea state media said the Trump administration was "pursuing a policy of military confrontation but this is nothing but a death-bed struggle by those alarmed by the might of the DPRK always emerging victorious". "Should the United States and its followers try to enforce the naval blockade against our country, we will see it as an act of war and respond with merciless self-defensive counter-measures as we have warned repeatedly," said KCNA, citing a foreign ministry spokesman.

    West Ham tactics: Aaron Cresswell is enjoying his new defensive role under David Moyes

    David Moyes’ decision to stick with goalkeeper Adrian rather than recall Joe Hart has been a big talking point during West Ham’s recent revival. “I’ve never played there before in my career but when the gaffer asked me to play there at Manchester City [West Ham lost 2-1], we were low on numbers,” said Cresswell, who still has hopes of making England’s squad for the World Cup. West Ham now face four games in 11 days, starting with a match at Stoke at Saturday, but Cresswell is not worried about their busy schedule.

    California wildfires prompt talks on tougher utility rules

    California utilities may face tougher safety rules for power lines, phone lines and utility poles in parts of the state most prone to wildfires. Under the proposed rules being considered Thursday by the California Public Utilities Commission, tree branches would have to be kept farther away from power lines, newly installed lines would have to be spaced farther apart from each other and utility companies would have to fix many safety problems in areas of high fire risk before making repairs in lower-risk zones.
