FILE PHOTO: Britain's former Prime Ministers Tony Blair and David Cameron attend a memorial service for Lord Paddy Ashdown at Westminster Abbey, in London, Britain September 10, 2019. “Abandoning the 0.7 target for aid would be a moral, strategic and political mistake,” Cameron, prime minister from 2010 to 2016 and a member of Johnson’s Conservative Party, said. The two former leaders argued that any move to cut spending on aid would undermine Britain’s position when it hosts the G7 summit in 2021. The decision comes as the country embarks on a new future outside the European Union. Blair, a Labour prime minister from 1997 to 2007 who introduced the 0.7% target, said the spending had tackled disease, boosted education and helped to increase living standards across large swathes of Africa.

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip celebrated their 73rd wedding anniversary on Friday, an occasion they were unable to share with their family during England’s current coronavirus lockdown.

The couple first met when they attended the wedding of Philip’s cousin, Princess Marina of Greece, to Elizabeth’s uncle, the Duke of Kent, in 1934. “The main lesson that we have learned is that tolerance is the one essential ingredient of any happy marriage,” Philip said in a speech on their 50th wedding anniversary in 1997.

REUTERS/Henry Nicholls/File PhotoLONDON (Reuters) - The former leader of Britain’s Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, will not be restored as a Labour Member of Parliament (MP) after he undermined efforts to tackle anti-Semitism, the current Labour leader Keir Starmer said on Wednesday. Corbyn was re-admitted to the party on Tuesday after being suspended for comments seen to be downplaying a report critical of Labour’s handling of anti-Semitism complaints under his leadership. However, Starmer refused to re-admit him to the Parliamentary Labour Party, meaning he would not officially represent Labour in parliament and would continue to be classed as an “independent” MP. “In those circumstances, I have taken the decision not to restore the whip to Jeremy Corbyn,” he said, using a term of parliamentary procedure.
