Cosby Stays Quiet Amid Assault Allegations — Comedian Bill Cosby is coming under increasing pressure over allegations of rape. Suggestions the former star of The Cosby Show might have been guilty of sexually assaulting a number of women in the past have long swirled in the background, but a number of factors have now conspired to bring the allegations to the forefront of public debate.

Navy SEAL Describes Moment He Shot Bin Laden — Former US Navy Seal Robert O'Neill has described the moment he shot and killed Osama bin Laden. The ex-serviceman was one of the fabled Seal Team 6 that carried out the 2011 raid on the Al Qaeda figurehead's home in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

UKIP On Course To Bruise Labour And Tories — Getting a directly elected MP into Westminster for the first time, as UKIP surely will in the form of Douglas Carswell in Clacton-on-Sea, ranks as a sizeable tremor on the party's earthquake scale. However, it lacks the one element that sows terror in the hearts of UKIP's political opponents - shock value.

PM's Pledge For Seven-Day Access To GPs — David Cameron will guarantee every NHS patient access to a GP seven days a week by 2020 under plans to be unveiled at the Conservative Party conference. The Prime Minister is expected to announce a £100m spending boost to improve access to family doctors should the Tories win next year's election.

Extremist Groups Targeted By New Measures — Theresa May is due to outline new powers at the Conservative party conference aimed at cracking down on dangerous extremists. She will tell delegates that the Home Office will drive through a new cross-governmental counter extremism strategy. Currently, the Home Office shares responsibility with the Department for Communities and Local Government.

UKIP Defections: PM Did Too Little, Too Late — Nigel Farage and UKIP are attempting to step up from a party of protest to genuine contenders in four-party politics. After the European elections in May, they could legitimately claim to have done that, having topped the poll with 27.5% of the vote.

UKIP Defection Timed For Maximum Damage — The Conservative MP for Rochester and Strood, Mark Reckless, has announced he is defecting to UKIP. The Tory backbencher made the announcement to rapturous applause from delegates at the UKIP party conference in Doncaster. He said he would resign his seat in Parliament, triggering a by-election in which he intended to stand for the party.

PM Faces Challenges Despite Referendum Victory — Relief - blessed relief. It is hard to overstate the importance of this result for the Prime Minister. In recent days David Cameron had been contemplating the possibility of a break-up of the Union, an event that would define his premiership and would scar his place in history.

Scottish Referendum Is 'Too Close To Call' — A research agency has said the Scottish referendum outcome is "too close to call" as both sides enter the final days of the vote campaign. TNS said the Yes and No campaigns were neck and neck with 41% ahead of the vote on September 18.

Boris Johnson: UK Should Not Fear EU Exit — Boris Johnson is to argue the UK should not be afraid of life outside the EU if a better deal cannot be negotiated with other European countries. In a major speech responding to a report the London mayor commissioned from his economic adviser Gerard Lyons, Mr Johnson will support David Cameron's desire to negotiate reforms to the EU in Britain's interest.
