The Telegraph, Citing Anonymous Sources, Claims Hezbollah 'Storing Missiles and Explosives at Lebanon's Main Airport' ChrisMenahan

The UK paper The Telegraph, citing exclusively anonymous sources, ran an article on Sunday with no named author claiming Hezbollah is "storing missiles and explosives at Lebanon's main airport."

The report reads like pure propaganda and Israel swiftly shared the report on their official X account to provide a pretext for blowing the airport up.

The Air Transport Union in Lebanon denied the report and invited foreign media outlets to tour the airport "with their camera crews and verify for themselves."

They derided The Telegraph's report as an "incitement to kill us."

The Energy Secretary, Claire Coutinho, warned recently that Labour’s plans to decarbonise the electricity grid by 2030 could lead to blackouts. It was a bit rich, given that her own party’s plans will have exactly the same effect, the only difference being five years later.

Unfortunately, neither party seems to have any understanding of how our energy system works, nor any policy for how to keep the lights on when the wind does not blow and the sun does not shine.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said Nigel Farage was "completely wrong" and was "playing into Putin's hands" while Sir Keir Starmer said the claim was "disgraceful." [see next...]
Johnson’s successor has doubled down on his inflexible approach. On the same day Putin ordered a ‘partial mobilisation’ to increase Russian troop deployments, Liz Truss pledged to “sustain or increase our military support to Ukraine, for as long as it takes” – adding to the £2.3bn already spent on lethal aid while advocating new rounds of punitive sanctions. Her explicit aim is now “to push Russia out of the whole of Ukraine”, including Crimea and the Donbas, and delay peace talks until Putin has been forced into this humiliating retreat.
"The British government has become an obstacle to peace in Ukraine," said the Stop the War Coalition. "The conflict there is developing into a proxy war between Russia and NATO and it is the Ukrainian people who will suffer the consequences."

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has followed up on his controversial election promise to introduce mandatory national service for UK teenagers with a warning that objectors could face significant restrictions.
