PM accuses Corbyn of plan to ‘fiddle’ second Brexit referendum

Boris Johnson has accused Jeremy Corbyn of a “sly” plan to “fiddle” a second Brexit referendum.

The Prime Minister said Mr Corbyn’s stance on the UK’s future with the EU has already done “serious harm” to trust in politics.

He urged his rival to reconsider his policy on the issue.

Mr Johnson’s remarks came as the two rivals prepared to go head-to-head later in a clash on live television tonight.


R Kelly accused of bribery before marrying singer Aaliyah at 15

R Kelly has been accused of paying a bribe for a fake ID the day before he married R&B singer Aaliyah, who was then 15 years old.

Federal prosecutors alleged that Kelly schemed with others to pay for a “fraudulent identification document” on August 30, 1994.

The document was for someone identified only as “Jane Doe,” according to a revised indictment filed in New York on Thursday.

A day later, the R&B artist married Aaliyah in a secret ceremony arranged by Kelly at a hotel in Chicago.

The marriage was annulled months later because of her age.

Katherine Jenkins was mugged after intervening in a robbery while on her way to rehearsals for a charity concert in London, her agent has said.

The opera singer witnessed a woman being targeted in the King’s Road, Chelsea, and reportedly stepped in to help the victim.

But the star, 39, was then mugged herself after jumping to the rescue, the opera singer’s agent said following the incident on Wednesday.

Jenkins was in the capital to sing at the Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Charity Carol Concert at St Luke’s Church.

Two 15-year-old girls were arrested on suspicion of robbery and released under investigation.

One has since been re-arrested.
