    All 12 of the boys, and their coach have been rescued.

    What great news, and what an effort from the rescuers.

    Happy Birthday RAF, 100 year’s young.

    What a way to celebrate!

      What a capital idea flying the tricolour over London.
      A sure endorsement that France will win the world cup!
      Off to the…TAB!!

        Withholding judgement until tomorrow’s game.
        England have looked solid, if unspectacular so far, but they have a style that suits the knock out games.
        France were sensational this morning though and made a very good Belgium side look second best by a margin IMO.

    This has to be the photo of the day.

    And those interested in the flight path for the 100 aircraft that took part in the flypast here it is:

      Bloody hell, I wonder how close France came to surrendering before those planes turned around!

    Al FBI investigation’s seem to evolve from the Steele Dossier, which was provided to FBI three times by three separate parties…

    We know from public testimony that dossier author and former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele shared his findings with the FBI in summer and fall 2016 before he was terminated as a confidential source for inappropriate media contacts.

    And we learned that Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) provided a copy to the FBI after the November 2016 election — out of a sense of duty, his office says.

    Now, memos the FBI is turning over to Congress show the bureau possessed at least three versions of the dossier and its mostly unverified allegations of collusion.

    Each arrived from a different messenger: McCain, Mother Jones reporter David Corn, Fusion GPS founder (and Steele boss) Glenn Simpson.

    in this case, the generally same information kept walking through the FBI’s door for months — recycled each time by a new character with ties to Hillary Clinton or hatred for Trump — until someone decided they had to act.

    That someone was Strzok, whose own anti-Trump bias was laid bare by his personal text messages. He first opened a case on Russia-Trump collusion on July 31, 2016 after the first flow of information, then escalated to get a warrant targeting a former Trump adviser in October after a second flurry of allegations.

    The pattern is so troubling that one investigator said this to me: “The dossier and its related dirt was on a circular flight path aboard a courier service called ‘Air Clinton,’ and the FBI kept signing for the packages.”
