President Donald Trump loves to brag about ratings, but he’s not getting them anymore. As he’s ramped up his rally schedule ahead of the midterms, viewership numbers for the raucous prime-time events have been roughly similar to — sometimes dipping below — Fox News’ regular programming, and the network has recently stopped airing most evening events in full.Story Continued Below During three Trump rallies last week, Fox News showed clips and highlights from his speeches but stuck largely with its normal weekday prime-time programming. On Saturday, when “Fox Report Weekend” and “Justice with Judge Jeanine” would ordinarily air, the network showed Trump’s speech from Topeka, Kan., in full. But on Tuesday, a rally in Council Bluffs, Iowa, was particularly hard to find — it was not aired live on any major network, and even C-SPAN cut away for other news. And on Wednesday night, as Trump took the stage in Erie, Pa., at 7 … [Read more...] about Trump, no longer ratings gold, loses his prime-time spot on Fox News

CHEQUERS is a lavish country estate where the Prime Minister can let her hair down and unwind or entertain high-profile guests. The residence dominated headlines after Theresa May secured her soft Brexit deal after marathon talks with Cabinet. Read on for more about this estate... Where is Chequers? Chequers is a country house near the village of Ellesborough in Buckinghamshire at the foot of the Chiltern Hills. The mansion is about 40 miles to the north west of Central London.

The housing market in the U.K. has reached new heights of unaffordability. The BBC recently reported that first-time buyers now have to save for eight years to gather enough money for a deposit. In London, where house prices have skyrocketed the fastest, that now means saving more than £80,000—a big chunk of change, considering the average salary in London is around the £35,000 mark. It is no surprise, therefore, that a report by the thinktank Resolution Foundation predicts one in three millennials of the U.K. will never own a house. The report warned that in the future, the sheer number of retiree renters could “double the housing benefit bill for pensioners from £6.3bn today to £16bn by 2060,” saying that not enough has been done to stem Britain’s housing crisis. In his 2017 budget, Chancellor Philip Hammond revealed plans to build 300,000 new homes a year, although he also admitted the government would not "pour money in" to solve the … [Read more...] about Bargain Real Estate: The Best £50k Properties Across the UK
