The party’s internal inquiry process was triggered when it received formal complaints about Mr Johnson’s saying that women in burkas look like letter boxes or bank robbers. It is understood the complaints will be considered and could then go to a full inquiry before a specially appointed panel, if it is decided the matter should go further.

Kitten Heels Are The Trendy Shoes Walking Right Into Fall 2018

When he was in his early 20s, Los Angeles-based writer Brandon G. Alexander often felt an inexplicable sadness after sex, even when it was “good” sex with people he liked. “The best way to describe the feeling is empty or sometimes shame, depending on my relationship and intention with the person,” the 30-year-old founder of the men’s lifestyle site New Age Gents told HuffPost. “Our culture teaches men how to be physically connected to someone, but we ignore the truth that sex is highly emotional and spiritual. The idea that a…

Texture Matters: Why Expensive Pasta Tastes Better Than The Cheap Stuff

It rarely gets the attention it deserves, but food’s texture is just as important as its flavor. Bubble tea, fried tortilla chips and salsa, panna cotta, Greek salad and a perfect egg omelet are all dependent on this neglected quality. If you’ve ever pondered why takeout and leftovers are never as good as food served fresh from the kitchen, texture is the culprit.

Nigel Farage: ‘Don’t say sorry, Boris, you have nothing to apologise for’ | Politics | News

Our forebears made great sacrifices in military operations such as this in order that future generations could live in a democracy and enjoy a range of freedoms including the right to free speech – a right which comes with an in-built licence to offend. Yet as the current row over Boris Johnson’s remarks about the burka shows, this precious privilege is being eroded at a rate of knots.
