Farage claims Tories are threatening Brexit party candidates

Nigel Farage has claimed that his Brexit Party candidates have received abusive and threatening phone calls from Conservatives asking them not to stand in the upcoming general election.

He added that Number 10 has promised his candidates "jobs and Christmas baubles" if they don't stand.

The Brexit Party leader named Sir Edward Lister, Boris Johnson's Chief Strategic Adviser, as someone who was ringing up candidates and offering them jobs.

He accused No.10 of abusing their power comparing the UK to Venezuela.

Mr Johnson replied: "the Home Secretary has apologised for any way in which her conduct fell short - and frankly I make no apology for sticking up, for standing by a Home Secretary who, as I've said just now, is getting on with delivering the people's priorities".

Chancellor: Public sector pay pause for reasons of fairness

Rishi Sunak has said that the pay pause to some public sector workers is "for reasons of fairness". In his Spending Review, Rishi Sunak said nurses, doctors and others in the NHS will get a pay rise, but for the rest of the public sector, any increase will be paused, affecting firefighters, teachers, the armed forces, police, civil servants, council and Government agency staff. Mr Sunak added that the lowest paid public sector staff - those earning below £24,000 - would see their pay increased by at least £250. During a visit to Hammersmith Hospital, the Chancellor said it "wouldn't be fair or right to have an across-the-board increase in public sector pay". Report by Thomasl.

Diego Maradona Dies From Heart Attack at 60

Argentinian football legend Diego Maradona has died at the age of 60, after suffering a cardiac arrest. He passed away just two weeks after undergoing surgery for a clot in his brain. Widely regarded as one of the best footballers of all time, Maradona was instrumental in Argentina’s 1986 World Cup win. Never far from controversy, he was responsible for the infamous 'Hand of God' goal that eliminated England from the tournament. He played club football for Boca Juniors, Napoli and Barcelona among others, and was adored by millions of fans for his unmatched abilities. But even at the height of his playing career in the 1980s, Maradona struggled with drug and alcohol addiction, receiving several bans for substance abuse before he retired from the pitch in 1997. He suffered an overdose in 2000 and a heart attack four years later, before appearing to turn his life around, taking charge of the Argentina national team as manager between 2008 and 2010.
