Saturday 13:14 GMT

Mr Cameron said "populism" had cost him his job and, in a question and answer session following his speech, he said: "So far these three events - the Brexit referendum, the election of President Trump, the referendum in Italy - I'm sure people are going to write about this movement of unhappiness and concern about the state of the world." He said a mixture of economics and cultural arguments had influenced the British and US votes, but in Italy "it's more connected with the euro".

Trump, Mocking Claim That Russia Hacked Election, at Odds with G.O.P.

Today 00:14 GMT

An extraordinary breach has emerged between President-elect Donald J. Trump and the national security establishment, with Mr. Trump mocking American intelligence assessments that Russia interfered in the election on his behalf, and top Republicans vowing investigations into Kremlin activities.

Mr. Trump’s team lashed out at the agencies after The Washington Post reported that the C.I.A. believed that Russia had intervened to undercut Mrs. Clinton and lift Mr. Trump, and The New York Times reported that Russia had broken into Republican National Committee computer networks just as they had broken into Democratic ones, but had released documents only on the Democrats.

Oakland's warehouses are a vibrant refuge. Don't take them away from us

Saturday 16:14 GMT

Until local leaders define a pathway for liminal spaces towards civic oversight that isn’t a pretext for expulsion, denizens of old warehouses, foundries, creameries, and churches will likely rely on the clandestine communities where they first feel safe.

For years, non-conforming bodies and those outside the mainstream have found refuge and possibility in derelict buildings throughout Oakland. Integral community members were lost in the fire, and many of them were dear friends and inspired artists with radically inclusive visions of a music and arts scene.

John Glenn, the former astronaut and U.S. senator who became the first American to orbit the earth, will be laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery, Fox News has learned.

After years of waiting, Toronto and Seattle get their shot at MLS glory

Today 00:13 GMT

Seattle have been waiting, certainly, and the wait has seemed longer because they’re a big club, with huge attendances for MLS, and a record of successful Cup soccer in the US Open Cup – yet they’ve never reached an MLS Cup, let alone won one, despite making the playoffs every year of their existence.

Toronto have been around longer than Seattle, yet talking about a decade-long wait for MLS Cup implies that an MLS Cup has been even a remote possibility for most of that time.

Wisconsin judge rejects Trump group bid to stop vote recount: media

Saturday 18:15 GMT

Even if recounts in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin were all to go ahead, they would be extremely unlikely to change the outcome of Republican Trump's win over Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Two justices on Thursday disqualified themselves from the case because Trump had listed them as possible nominees to fill the U.S. Supreme Court vacancy, according to court documents.

Roof told investigators he chose Emanuel AME Church because of its history as the oldest black church in the South and because he was confident only black people would attend the Bible study.

Alabama's cruel and unusual execution of Ronald Smith

Saturday 21:15 GMT

The Supreme Court issued a stay just before Smith’s scheduled 6 p.m. execution to give itself time to consider Smith’s appeal, then lifted the stay without explanation but soon issued a second one, which it also soon lifted, and Smith was finally killed by lethal injections that began at 10:25 p.m. . On a separate appeals track, Smith also had asked the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals to halt his execution while he argued that Alabama’s three-drug lethal-injection protocol is unconstitutional — an argument that other death row inmates in Alabama and elsewhere have made.
