On April 27, 2017, British security forces thwarted a second terrorist attack on the Palace of Westminster by sending in armed police. The attempted attack was virtually identical to the one that cost PC Keith Palmer his life last month—except this time armed police intervened, and no one was hurt.

In the early hours of Friday morning, Sam Armstrong, chief of staff to the Member of Parliament for Thanet South, was arrested for rape.

The petition demands the referendum rules are retrospectively changed forcing a second vote on Britain’s membership of the EU. But doubts were raised about the authenticity of those signing after evidence that a code was being used emerged (right for lay people, techies click here). It shows ho
WESTMINSTER, United Kingdom - The British Parliament got its latest member today, Viscount Thurso, who won every single vote in the House of Lords by-election, all three of them. His win will now entitle him to sit in the Upper Chamber of Parliament for life and claim up to $500 a day in pay.
