From the Battle of Hastings to Brexit: New book

series of maps taking in the Anglo-Saxons,

From the Brexit result and The Battle of Hastings to Queen Elizabeth´s Coronation and Hitler´s planned invasion, these are just some of the fascinating maps which tell the history of our islands through the medium of cartography Many of them mark critical moments in the history of Great Britain, including a colour-coded map of the UK indicating how each area of the country voted in the June 2016 EU referendum and in what percentages - while another shows the population density in different parts of Britain during the Victorian era. Further maps illustrate Nazi Germany´s plans for Operation Sealion - an audacious

I can´t talk say much about the ravaging that wielded horrible changes; what beauty was left post-WWII England since I left in 1967 began to disappear. Watching sadly that once decent and comfortable place sinking into the last chance of any happy survival stabs deeply.

And then there´s my beloved adopted country´s future . . . .

The Daily Mail´s grammar really needs attention: "The Queen endured a two-hour, four-and-a-half mile return journey from Westminster Abbey to make sure her and the Duke of Edinburgh could wave to as many adoring subjects as possible." Should read "she and the Duke."

The Daily Mail is a secret sin of mine, but I do believe that most of what is written is by 14 year old Brits or 18 year old´s in the DM office in India.

Yes, a guilty sin I´ve enjoyed for many years.

However, I can no longer get to the DM website because, according to my browser, "the server won´t accept your ISP." Wonder what that´s about?? My Ad-Blocker, maybe??

Donald Trump said Monday on Twitter that Omarosa Manigault Newman, the reality-TV villain who he hired to conduct African-American outreach in his White House, signed a confidentiality agreement while she worked in the West Wing. The president´s tweet confirmed what his counselor Kellyanne Conway suggested a day earlier. But it´s unclear whether non-disclosure agreements signed by government employees are worth the paper they´re printed on. ´Wacky Omarosa already has a fully signed Non-Disclosure Agreement!´ Trump told his 53.7 million Twitter followers. That hasn´t stopped her, and she told MSNBC on Monday that she ´absolutely´ has more audio recordings than the few she has

HOPKINS, SC - Pollution tied to infant deaths and cancer in adults has shown up for decades in the groundwater beneath a nuclear fuel factory less than two miles from Michael Daugherty’s house. But the 41-year-old Daugherty, a lifelong Hopkins resident, never knew much about the Westinghouse plant, except that two of his cousins work there. Now, in the aftermath of a recent uranium leak at the plant, Daugherty wants to know whether the factory he has driven by for decades is a threat to his community. He’s among multiple Lower Richland residents uneasy about the safety of the Westinghouse facility, an

Iran has unveiled its next generation short-range ballistic missile with a warning that its ´will to enhance our defence power in all fields will increase´. The Fateh Mobin rocket was described by Iranian defence minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami as ´100-percent domestically made - agile, stealth, tactical (and) precision-guided´. ´As promised to our dear people, we will not spare any effort to increase the missile capabilities of the country and we will certainly increase our missile power every day,´ Hatami said.

She was hired, they say, for her expertise on law, technology, internet culture -- and white people. That’s her job description. Well, okay, I added the “white people” part, though the more you read about Sarah Jeong, the recent editorial hire at The New York Times, the more you realize that she is mostly about defining people by race. That’s her real specialty and if you happen to be “white,” you do not want to run into her in a dark alley. Nor on twitter, where she says – and this is just a sample of a theme that gets worse and worse

Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani insisted on Sunday that a central claim of fired FBI Director James Comey – one that could land the president in legal hot water – is completely false. Comey wrote in a private memo following a February 2017 meeting with Trump that the newly minted president had asked him to tone down the investigative pressure on former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. Not so, Giuliani claimed. Flynn was bounced from the White House after just 24 days on the job, an event Trump has said was a consequence of Flynn´s lies to the FBI about his pre-inauguration contacts

Democrats are a good bet to retake the U.S. House of Representatives when midterm elections are decided in November, but it won´t mean they have fixed the problems and perceptions that cost them big with voters in the 2014 and 2016 cycles. They may even be getting worse. Democrats were once known as the party of rural families, union members and the white working class. It is now associated with the coastal elites, nouveau socialists, the "resistance" and all manner of identity politics. The point is that Democrats have turned their backs on the voters who once lifted them to consistent congressional

A British sniper gunned down a jihadi from almost 1.5miles away in what is reportedly the best long-range shot ever in the SAS. The sergeant killed the Islamic State commander with a .50 Calibre machine gun, shooting him in the chest. The Islamist´s arm and shoulder were torn off due to the force of the bullet and he died instantly. The jihadi was on a British and US kill list. A veteran of Iraq and Syria, the sergeant was secretly patrolling a region of northern Afghanistan under Islamic State control, The Daily Star Sunday reports. His gun is being decommissioned and displayed in

Earlier, in another column, we asked if the New York Post has changed sides, from friend to foe as regards Israel. Today, we wonder no more. Dig this for a headline: “Israeli airstrikes in Gaza Strip kill pregnant woman, her 1-year-old daughter.” Never mind that Hamas started it and accelerated it with more than 100 rockets being fired into Israel as thousands of Israelis along the Gaza border are sent running to their bomb shelters. That gets no mention and even the rest of the story gives it a passive voice moral equivalency twist, as in – “A flare-up of violence.” It is

DONALD Trump will be the “last President” of the United States but has “no intention of leaving the White House” and likes the thought of being President for life, one American filmmaker has warned. Close 0:23 / 1:47 Michael Moore implied the President is desperate to hold on to his job for as long as possible. Speaking to the Huffington Post, the 64-year old said: “Donald Trump is an even genius; he has no intention of leaving the White House. “Whenever he hears that another country has a President for life he perks up and thinks ‘I like the sound of that.’” Mr Moore was speaking ahead of

North Korea has called on the United States to reciprocate its ´goodwill measures´ by easing sanctions and stopping demands that the North denuclearise first, which they branded insulting. Pyongyang said in a statement that ´expecting any result, while insulting the dialogue partner amounts to waiting to see a boiled egg hatch out.´ The statement accused U.S. diplomats of ´going against the intention of President Trump´ by refusing to lift actions until there is proof of denuclearisation in the hermit state. In the most recent sign of growing frustration between Washington and Pyongyang, North Korea criticised senior American officials for insisting that North

A PLUNGING Turkish lira and Russian rouble pulled the euro lower today and rippled through riskier assets worldwide, sending stock markets lower and buoying safe haven assets such as U.S. Treasuries. The euro fell to its lowest level since July 2017 and the dollar rallied as Washington piled pressure on Ankara and Moscow. The lira went into free-fall, sinking more than 10 percent to all-time lows. European stocks looked set to start well in the red, following losses in Asia and U.S. futures. Spreadbetters indicated London´s FTSE was set to open 4 points lower at 7,738, Frankfurt´s DAX 17 points lower at

Ohio Gov. John Kasich on Sunday said the GOP needs to find a unifying message to tamp down the “chaotic environment” that seems to dominate political discourse today, citing a narrow victory for Republican Troy Balderson in a special congressional election that should have been a slam dunk for his party. Mr. Balderson appears to have squeaked out a win in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District, where Republicans previously won with “overwhelming numbers,” as the governor put it. That’s raising fears among Republicans about their prospects in swing districts this November. “What you had is a, I think, a message from

"The dirty war on the free press must end." That´s the idea behind an unusual editorial-writing initiative that has enlisted scores of newspapers across America. The Boston Globe has been contacting newspaper editorial boards and proposing a "coordinated response" to President Trump´s escalating "enemy of the people" rhetoric. "We propose to publish an editorial on August 16 on the dangers of the administration´s assault on the press and ask others to commit to publishing their own editorials on the same date," The Globe said in its pitch to fellow papers. The effort began just a few days ago.

Tennessee has carried out its first execution in nearly a decade using a controversial cocktail of drugs including a lethal ingredient described by the Supreme Court as "chemically burning at the stake". Billy Ray Irick, an inmate convicted of the 1985 rape and murder of seven-year-old Paula Dyer, received a three-drug injection on Thursday night after the US Supreme Court denied a final request to stay his execution. The lethal injection consisted of midazolam, used as sedative during an execution, a muscle-relaxer called vecuronium bromide, and compounded potassium chloride, the agent that stops the heart.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said Sunday that it´s in President Trump´s best interest to let special counsel Robert Mueller complete his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Rubio, appearing on "Fox News Sunday," echoed a number of his Republican colleagues in defending the special counsel in the face of Trump´s call last week for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to end the Mueller investigation. Rubio said the "best thing that can happen" for Trump and the country is for the investigation to "run the course and for all the truth to come out."

In an op-ed for the Boston Globe, Dani Rodrik, professor of international political economy at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, calls for what is effectively an academic blacklisting of members of the Trump administration, who, Rodrik contends, should be prohibited from receiving "even a semblance of honor or recognition" from the gatekeepers of higher learning. "Universities should uphold both free inquiry and the values of liberal democracy," writes Rodrik. "The first calls for unhindered exchange and interaction with Trumpist views. The second requires that the engagement be carefully calibrated, with not even a semblance of honor or recognition bestowed

A Gallup poll released Monday finds that – for the first time in the poll company’s data collection over the past decade – Democrats view socialism more positively than capitalism. The current survey demonstrates only 47 percent of Democrats view capitalism positively, a drop from 56 percent in 2016. Democrats’ view of socialism, however, has remained positive since 2010, with 57 percent having a positive perspective. Meanwhile, Republicans have remained positive about capitalism, with 71 percent taking that perspective and only 16 percent stating they have a positive view of socialism. The poll finds younger Americans have shown the greatest

Omarosa Manigault Newman made headlines on Monday morning following her contentious Today show interview, but it was her bright yellow dress that baffled style critics and left them wondering what she was thinking. The 44-year-old former assistant to the president looked ready for a cocktail reception in a $550 one-shoulder lace dress featuring a sweetheart neckline and scalloped hem when she sat down with Savannah Guthrie in Studio 1A. Omarosa was promoting her tell-all White House memoir, ´Unhinged,´ but her Karen Millen outfit choice prompted swift backlash from those who felt it was ´incredibly inappropriate´ for the morning show and

I hate to break it to parents who just sent their college-admission-minded progeny to the Tibetan Plateau to churn yak butter, but the smartest summer I ever spent was in secretarial school. This was back when I was 17, and it wasn’t grist for an essay about a transformative communion with people outside my clique. I wasn’t ripping the blinders from my eyes. I was typing — hour upon hour, day after day, with my shoulders back and my spine straight and my hands just so.

Last year, when the kneeling controversy erupted like a California wildfire and the president launched a series of attacks on the NFL and Colin Kaepernick, I argued that cooler heads should prevail and a middle ground could be reached by both sides. Like the recovering alcoholic I am, I must have been in denial, hoping like a chronic gambler that Roger Goodell would do the right thing, or even just do his job. Obviously, I was wrong, because here we are again, my friends: another year, another round of protests. And all because the NFL and Roger Goodell have been
