Bill Barr didn’t want to work for President Donald Trump. At age 68 and semi-retired for a decade, the attorney general resisted three efforts over two years to recruit him into Trump’s fold. When approached in late 2018 for his current job, Barr recommended other candidates instead. Anybody but him. Only when the White House came back yet again did he relent. Story Continued Below Soon after Trump finally landed him, it didn’t seem to be a love affair in the making. At Barr’s Senate confirmation hearings in January, Barr talked at length about a decades-long friendship with special counsel Robert Mueller, describing his investigation as “vitally important” and assuring lawmakers that ”on my watch, Bob will be allowed to finish his work.” “Enjoy your life,” Trump told Barr at a White House news conference shortly thereafter. Now that Barr has provided him with political cover from Mueller’s report, Trump is … [Read more...] about The real reason Bill Barr is defending Trump

IN October last year the Ministry of Defence suddenly announced that women could serve in the Special Forces. A political decision that was clearly designed to distract voters and get an easy round of applause. Two things that were never going to stop Channel 4 enforcing the same rules at its own brilliant version of selection, SAS: Who Dares Wins, even if it was the last show on television that needed any fixing. Its three series have been close to works of art, in fact, largely thanks to their breathtaking settings and four instructors, Ant Middleton, Jason Fox, Matthew Ollerton and Mark Billingham, who gave it such an air of authenticity you could suspend disbelief and imagine you were watching the real thing. As the show’s introduction would have it, though, everything’s changed and they’re a band of brothers no more. The fourth run has 13 female recruits including a mole called Petra who’s served, for nine years, with Swedish Special forces, on their … [Read more...] about Sob stories have reduced Channel 4’s brutal SAS show to Who Dares Whinges
