Sunday 23:41 GMT

President Trump suggested that Defense Secretary James Mattis could be one of the next administration officials to depart his Cabinet.

Women-only motor racing contest still leaves some petrolheads fuming

Sunday 23:41 GMT

The thought recurred this week, when the creators of the W Series announced their new just-for-women single-seater motor racing competition.

It was another of those notions that seemed like a good idea to someone, somewhere, at the time – a made-for-ITV single-gender racing series to uncover and promote female drivers.

Friday 18:13 GMT

Hopefully, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will also leave the Justice Department when Sessions heads out the door.

Once Sessions and Rosenstein leave the Justice Department, perhaps the rule of law and the word “justice” can be restored to the department’s name. Trump was right when he said that choosing Sessions as attorney general was one of the “worst” decisions he has made.
