Workman stuns commuters by tucking into full English breakfast on the London Underground

Category : News , UK News

HUNGRY workman stunned fellow commuters by getting on the Tube balancing a full English breakfast and a cuppa.
The bloke, thought to be a builder, got on the Victoria line from Stockwell at around 7am on Tuesday where he proceeded to eat his tasty brekkie from the china plate.
The workman ate a full English breakfast on the London tube
Other travellers looked on jeaolously as he scoffed beans, sausages, mushrooms, bacon and scrambled eggs for the three minute journey before getting off at Pimlico.
Not worrying about offending anyone on the crowded train, the brave brickie even slurped from a china white mug of tea as he balanced the plate on one hand.
One commuter, 32, took a snap of the breakfast bandit, telling The Sun: “The guy, who was probably a builder, got on at Stockwell with his plate and a China mug of tea.
“My eyes bulged and I caught the eye of the guy opposite me and we started laughing. It was a huge shock.
“He had a full-on Full English – bacon, scrambled eggs, two sausages, beans, mushrooms and ketchup – and was properly tucking in with a fork.
“He kept putting his tea on the floor and picking it up to take a slurp occasionally.
“The guy sat next to me was messaging his girlfriend about it.
‘A BIT JEALOUS’
“Usually at that time in the morning it’s all workmen and bankers.
“He did so well to balance it – I had visions of it going all over me!
“There were a couple of points when the tube budged and I thought it’d go everywhere. It had everything on there as well.
“I think he’d got it from a cafe and didn’t have time to finish it so he took it on the tube.
“The guy I was laughing with was in a suit. It looked like he was a bit jealous.
“Thought he was going to ask for a sausage! He was texting his partner to tell them what was happening.
“I was slightly offended by the eggy smell but mainly admired his guts and appetite. I managed to get a covert shot of him eating.
“I’m pretty sure the mug was a typical builder’s mug, it looked like it may have a crown on it, like one of those keep calm and carry on designs.

Iraq’s fearless female anti-ISIS fighters bite into snakes and rabbits as they graduate from Peshmerga training camp

Category : News , World News

INCREDIBLE pictures show fearless female anti-ISIS fighters biting into snakes and rabbits as they graduate from combat school.
The officers of the Peshmerga – Kurdish military forces – graduated today near the Iraqi-Kurdish town of Soran, 60 miles northeast of the Kurds’ capital, Erbil.

During the ceremony, the women sunk their teeth into live snakes and rabbits and took down their male counterparts in combat.
Peshmerga first became a key player in the ground war against ISIS in August 2014 when the Sunni-extremist troops attacked their region.
The Kurdish Peshmerga is renowned for using female fighters on the frontline, with one of the women’s biggest achievements being when they held off an ISIS assault on the city of Kobane , and reclaimed the strategically crucial Mosul Dam soon after it fell to the militants.
ISIS were said to be “terrified of the force because they thought being killed by a woman lost them a place in paradise”.

Married teacher, 28, got pupil to stand guard at classroom door as she had sex with classmate, 13 after sending him X-rated texts’

Category : News , World News

A MARRIED teacher romped with a 13-year-old pupil in her classroom and got another student to stand guard at a classroom door, police say.
Details of the alleged affair between Brittany Zamora, 28, and the boy were recently recorded in interviews and released by police.
Brittany Zamora, now 28, allegedly romped with a pupil as another student watched
Goodyear Police Department Police released evidence appearing to show Zamora engaging in sordid chats with her teen ‘victim’[/caption]
The student who kept guard at the classroom door was told he had to keep quiet about what he saw, the Arizona Republic reports.
He told cops: “I was one of the witnesses, one of the people that saw Ms Zamora and my friend…touch each other.”
He added: “It’s, like weird how a 27-year-old can, like, love a 13-year-old and do stuff. It’s just crazy.
“She’s not a good person.”
He also said Zamora asked about his genitalia one day in school, 12 News reports.
He said: “Ms Zamora asked if my thing was, um… uncircumcised or circumcised, and I didn’t know what that means, so Ms Zamora went on her phone and looked up uncircumcised and circumcised.”
The student was asked to stand guard again at the door the next day, but declined.

Newly released evidence obtained by detectives show Brittany Zamora also appeared to swap raunchy x-rated texts on the messaging app called Classcraft with the teen who she taught at Las Brisas Academy in Goodyear, Arizona.
And they allegedly groped each other during class while other pupils were distracted with a video.
Zamora faces ten counts of sexual misconduct with a minor and two counts of molestation – which she denies.
The teacher, now 28, was arrested in March last year after her alleged victim’s horrified parents found nude images and explicit material on his phone.
Now, it has emerged that one of her alleged sordid trysts with the child took place in her classroom – as another boy watched.
AZ Central also reports that the pair sexually touched each other while oblivious students watched a video, police records show.
SORDID TEXTS
It is one of numerous seedy encounters between Zamora and the teenager, according to video, police interviews and footage of Zamora’s arrest obtained by the newspaper.
One photo allegedly shows a photo of the boy’s phone with messages between himself and the teacher.
Under the name “mrs.zamora_”, she appears to write: “Aww baby – I wish you were with me” – before sending a mystery video clip.
Another message reads: “I want you too baby so bad! Whenever we can you know I’m down” with a love heart emoji.
A third adds: “Like you for real get sexier to me every day lol.”
Police also photographed dozens of what they alleged were love notes swapped between Zamora and the teen – who cannot be named for legal reasons.
‘GROOMED’ ON SCHOOL APP
Zamora allegedly first began grooming the boy through her school’s own social media app.
She used a programme called Classcraft to talk to students outside of school – including her supposed victim.
Zamora, who started at the school a year before the allegations emerged, allegedly had sex with the teen at least four times between February 1 and March 8 last year.
In one instance she is alleged to have performed a sex act on him in her car – and again in a classroom.
On another occasion the boy claims she contacted him at midnight and drove to his grandparents’ house so he could sneak out to be with her.

If I could quit my job and (have sex with) you all day long, I would

Brittany Zamoraalleged text to 13-year-old boy

After one supposed tryst, the boy is said to have messaged her asking to sleep with her again.
Zamora allegedly responded: “I know baby! I want you every day with no time limit… If I could quit my job and (have sex with) you all day long, I would.”
The boy’s distraught parents are suing Liberty Elementary School District claiming that school authorities did not do enough to protect their son.

Celtic fan blasted after comparing Brendan Rodgers’ departure for Neil Lennon as ‘going to sleep with Michelle Keegan and waking up with Michelle McManus’

Category : Celtic , News , Scottish News

A CHEEKY Celtic fan has been criticised after comparing losing Brendan Rodgers for Neil Lennon as “going to bed with Michelle Keegan and waking up with Michelle McManus”.
The bewildered Hoops supporter took to social media to complain about the departure.
Neil Lennon joined Celtic as interim bossKenny Ramsay – The Sun Glasgow
The fan, Craig Harkins, told of his surprise at Rodgers leaving for Leicester City as Celts made quick work of bringing in his replacement.
And he made the dig at Lenny – hinting at a downgrade in managerial ability.
He tweeted: “What the f*** is going on?? I have just woke up and Neil Lennon is now the Celtic manager.
“Living in Oz is a real b****** sometimes. You go to bed with Michelle Keagan and wake up with Michelle McManus”.
Rodgers left for Leicester CityKenny Ramsay – The Sun Glasgow
The post racked up the likes and shares since it was posted, with a number of people sharing in the joke.
However some others criticised the “unnecessary” harshness against both Lennon and Michelle McManus.
One person said: “There is no need for that last sentence.”
Another commented: “P*** patter Craig”.
A third responded: “Moron”. 
Michelle Keegan was voted Sexiest Woman AliveDan Charity – The Sun
Others joked: “Lol that’s so Funny”.
Former Corrie star Michelle Keegan was named FHM’s Sexiest Woman Alive in 2015.
Craig is not the first Hoops fan to voice his displeasure at ex-boss Rodgers moving down south to join the Foxes.
Fans have blasted the Hoops joker for his comments on Michelle McManusInstagram
We told how supporters branded the Northern Irishman a “fraud” in a brutal, no-holds-barred banner at Tynecastle last night.
Other Bhoys fans were caught on camera singing a vile song about their old manager, with lyrics including “I hope you die in your sleep Brendan Rodgers, from a bullet from the IRA”.

UK weather forecast – Dreary cloud to engulf the WHOLE country today as Britain braces for huge 70mph storm this week

Category : News , UK News , Weather

DREARY cloud will sweep across Britain today as the country braces itself for a 70mph STORM later this week.
Skies will be blanketed with wall-to-wall cloud cover the length and breadth of the country on Wednesday, according to forecasts.
Ventusky The UK will be engulfed in cloud on Wednesday, with the above weather map showing low-hanging cloud at 3pm[/caption]
The three day forecast shows there is a large amount of rain on the way later this week
WX charts A zone of low pressure is forecast to sweep in from the West and is bringing gales of up to 70mph before the weekend[/caption]
And this could lead to outbreaks of rain especially in the North West and Scotland – and some of these could be wintry.
Thankfully, the blanketing effect of the cloud cover will see temperatures hit a more comfortable high-single-figures for much of the UK on Wednesday.
The latest forecast from Meteogroup UK said: “A bright start for many, although it will be wet in the far south-east and there will be wintry showers in western Scotland.
“Through the day, most will become cloudy and showers will become more extensive in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
“Central parts will be mostly dry and bright. A breezy day.”
For tonight, the forecast adds: “It will be a cloudy start for most with rain in the south, west and north-west.
“There may be a few clear spells initially in the north-east.
“However, through the night, most will become cloudy.
“Outbreaks of rain will spread eastwards through the night, affecting most parts. Moderate southerly winds.”

STORM’S BREWING
The dull, grey day comes ahead of storm that is set to batter Britain with 70mph gales and lashing rain.
A zone of low pressure from the Atlantic is sweeping brisk winds across the country from the west, bringing a week of nasty weather.
Forecasters have warned the rest of this week will be filled with unsettled weather.
A Met Office weather expert said: “Friday the storm will be at its peak as wind speeds reach 70mph in the most exposed parts of the west.
“And the weekend will get off to a dreary start.”
RETURN TO MILDER WINTER
Freezing fog and gales aside, temperatures have been returning to normal for February, with up to 11C expected in the South West, up to 9C in the South East and Midlands and 6C in Scotland.
Simon Partridge, from the Met Office, added: “It is definitely back on track in terms of temperature, where they should be for the time of year, back to a more traditional UK winter for at least a week.
“The rest of the week is just more unsettled weather.”
The warmer temperatures come after a low of -11.7C was recorded at Chillingham Barns in Northumberland in the early hours of Sunday morning, the Met Office said.
But while it was the coldest night of the year so far in England it was not as cold as parts of Scotland, where temperatures fell as low as minus 12.6C at Braemar in the Highlands.
VALENTINE’S DAY FREEZE
The warmer spell ahead won’t last for long, as forecasters warned Britain is set to be hit with a -16C Valentine’s freeze too cold for gritters and yet MORE heavy snow.
February 14 could be the coldest weather for NINE years as icy conditions return.
Forecaster Simon Partridge said: “We’ve got a lot more winter to get through.
“Most forecast models agree temperatures will dip again from around February 14 onwards.”
The wintry conditions are expected to continue into the half-term break from February 18.

The Met Office warned: “There is the possibility that frontal systems may bring wintry hazards, particularly if a more east or northeasterly flow develops.
“Temperatures overall around the average.”
They added: “We spent last week on the cold side of the jet stream. It’s going to be much milder this week as the jet stream moves north, driving wet and windy weather our way”.

State of the Union address – President Donald Trump announces new round of nuclear weapons talks with North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un later this month

Category : News , UK News

DONALD Trump last night announced he will hold new landmark talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un later this month.
In his State of the Union address on Tuesday, the US president said that he will hold a two-day summit in Vietnam on February 27-28.

The talks are part of an effort to persuade Kim to give up his deadly nuclear weapons arsenal.
Speaking to Congress, the President said that continued outreach to Kim and their first meeting last June in Singapore opened a path to peace.
But there is not yet a concrete plan for how denuclearization could be implemented.
President Trump said on Tuesday night: “As part of a bold new diplomacy, we continue our historic push for peace on the Korean Peninsula.”
TRICKY TASK
Denuclearizing North Korea is something that has eluded the US for more than two decades.
Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats told Congress last week that American intelligence officials do not believe Kim will eliminate his nuclear weapons.
Nor will Kim scrap his country’s capacity to build more – because he believes they are key to the survival of the regime.
Satellite video taken since the June summit has indicated North Korea is continuing to produce nuclear materials at its weapons factories.
MOVES TO DISARM
Last year, North Korea released American detainees and suspended nuclear and long-range missile tests.
It also dismantled a nuclear test site and parts of a rocket launch facility without the presence of outside experts.
The hermit state has repeatedly demanded that the United States reciprocate with measures such as sanctions relief.
But Washington has called for North Korea to take steps such as providing a detailed account of its nuclear and missile facilities that would be inspected and dismantled under a potential deal.

State of the Union address – Donald Trump blasts wealthy elite’s hypocrisy as they ‘push for open borders while living behind walls’ in fiery Congress speech

Category : News , World News

DONALD Trump last night blasted wealthy elites for backing “open borders while living behind walls”.
In a State of the Union speech marked by calls for unity, the president did not hold back in his criticism of Democrat politicians blocking his $5.7bn border wall plan.
President Trump delivering his State of the Union address in front of Vice President Mike Pence and House Speaker Nancy PelosiAFP
Donald Trump’s speech to Congress contained boasts about America’s economy and jobs – but he blasted opponents over the border wallAFP or licensors

Speaking to Congress on Tuesday evening, Trump accused “wealthy politicians and donors” of pushing “for open borders while living their lives behind walls and gates and guards.”
He said that his administration is calling for “safe, lawful, modern and secure” border security.
The president announced he had sent another 3,750 troops to defend against the “onslaught” of illegal immigration.
And he said that the US has a “moral duty” to protect its citizens – as well as immigrants who entered the country legally to “enrich our nation an strengthen our society in countless ways”.
“I want people to come into our country in the largest numbers ever – but they have to come in legally”, the president said.

‘I’LL GET IT BUILT’
Calling for steel barriers to be erected in areas that require the most need, Trump added: “Put simply, walls work and walls save lives.”
He said: “This is a smart, strategic, see-through steel barrier – not just a simple concrete wall.
“It will be deployed in the areas identified by border agents as having the greatest need, and as these agents will tell you, where walls go up, illegal crossings go way, way down.”
The president then added: “In the past, most of the people in this room voted for a wall. But the proper wall never got built.”
Looking steely-eyed, he added: “I’ll get it built.”
Democrats call the wall a waste of money and ineffective.
ECONOMIC SUCCESS
Meanwhile, the president flaunted America’s economic success under his administration.
The jobs market is vibrant, he said – while he boasted of the United States’ energy production capabilities.
But he claimed that “ridiculous partisan investigations” like the Russian collusion probe could derail America’s prosperity.
He said: “An economic miracle is taking place in the United States and the only thing that can stop it are foolish wars, politics, or ridiculous partisan investigations.”
Democrats, who now control the House, planned a series of probes into the Trump administration.
A special prosecutor is investigating Russian meddling into the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow.
Russia denies meddling and Trump has said there was no collusion.

Trump’s prime-time address – the longest since President Clinton in 2000 – came at a critical moment in his presidency.
He pushed his party into a lengthy government shutdown over the border wall – only to cave to Democrats who refused to hand over funding.
With another shutdown deadline looming on February 15, the president has few options for getting Congress to fund a border wall.
And he risks further alienating his party if he tries to bypass lawmakers by declaring a national emergency instead.
But Trump began his speech with a tone of “cooperation, compromise and the common good”.
He said: “I stand here ready to work with you to achieve historic breakthroughs for all Americans”.
CALLS FOR UNITY
The president added that Americans are “hoping that we will govern not as two parties, but as one nation.”
He continued: “We can bridge old divisions, heal old wounds, build new coalitions, forge new solutions, and unlock the extraordinary promise of America’s future. The decision is ours to make.
“We must choose between greatness or gridlock, results or resistance, vision or vengeance, incredible progress or pointless destruction.
“Tonight I ask you to choose greatness.”
But as he condemned political turmoil in Venezuela, Trump declared that “America will never be a socialist country”.
His remark was seen as targeting high-profile Democrats such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders who identify as socialists.

OLIVE BRANCH
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who was praised by Democrats for her hard-line negotiating during the shutdown, sat behind Trump throughout the speech.
She joined several other Democrat women in wearing white – the colour worn by suffragettes.
But reaching out an olive branch to opponents, Trump praised the record-breaking number of women in the American workforce.
Democrat congresswoman, who were the big winners in the recent mid-term elections, then stood for applause.
At this point, the president joked: “Don’t sit down yet, you’re going to love this.”
Pointing to the Congresswomen, he added: “We also have more women serving in Congress than at any time before”.
Shouts of “USA! USA!” then rang out from both sides of the chamber – one of many occasions the chant was bellowed by lawmakers.

In other pitches across the political divide, Trump announced:

He was eager to work with Congress on a $1bn infrastructure investment
Efforts to bring about cheaper prescription medications
He wishes to reduce rates of childhood cancer
Efforts to create nationwide paid family leave
A campaign to end the HIV epidemic in the United States by 2030

And the 72-year-old Trump hearkened back to moments of American greatness.
He celebrated the 50th anniversary year of the moon landing as astronaut Buzz Aldrin looked on from the audience.
Heralding the liberation of Europe from the Nazis, Trump led the House chamber in singing happy birthday to a Holocaust survivor sitting with first lady Melania Trump.
The president said: “Together, we represent the most extraordinary nation in all of history.
“What will we do with this moment? How will we be remembered?”

Let us reaffirm a fundamental truth: children, born and unborn, are made in the image of God

But the president also defended his political stomping ground with fervent opposition to the relaxation of abortion laws.
He said: “To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking the Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s womb.”
To cheers from Republicans, Trump added: “Let us reaffirm a fundamental truth: children, born and unborn, are made in the image of God.”

KIM MEETING
Trump also defended his record on military spending – and his administration’s efforts to get allies to “pay their fair share”.
The president said: “We will never apologise for advancing America’s interests.”
And he praised his policy on North Korea, saying: “If I had not been elected president of the United States, we would right now, in my opinion, be in a major war with North Korea.”
He also announced he would be meeting Kim Jong Un for a further round of talks in Vietnam on 27 and 28 February.
Trump has said that his outreach to Kim and their first meeting last June in Singapore opened a path to peace.
But there is not yet a concrete plan for how denuclearization could be implemented.
US intelligence chiefs believe there is little likelihood Kim will voluntarily give up his nuclear weapons or missiles capable of carrying them.
Private analysts reviewing commercial satellite imagery have assessed that the North is still developing nuclear and missile technology despite suspending tests.

FOREIGN POLICY
As his economic advisers work to complete a trade deal with China, Trump said any agreement “must include real, structural change to end unfair trade practices, reduce our chronic trade deficit, and protect American jobs.”
He also called out Iran for threats against Israel.
The President said: “We will not avert our eyes from a regime that chants Death to America and threatens genocide against the Jewish people”.
Trump also gave his support for an effort to coax Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro into leaving power.
And he declaring the Islamic State militant group all but defeated.
Trump’s guests for the speech included Anna Marie Johnson – a woman whose life sentence for drug offences was commuted by the president.
Joshua Trump, a sixth-grade student from Wilmington, Delaware, who has been bullied over his last name, was also invited.

It means no human will be in control of the vehicles, even remotely. Ministers say the advanced trials — the first anywhere in Europe — will put the UK at the forefront of the technology.
But the announcement sparked safety fears, coming less than a year after a woman was killed by a driverless car in America.
