Sir Malcolm Rifkind resigns: Kensington's next MP might be this woman

telegraph.co.uk — That's why Rifkind's former stronghold is set to be one of the most hard fought-over seats to come-up in recent Conservative history. What's more, it looks like the upcoming battle for West London might just set the shutters (no lace curtains here, thank you very much) twitching in those multi-million pound houses.

SUBC: Speaker Takes Some Blame For Rowdy PMQs

news.sky.com — The Speaker of the House of Commons has admitted he is partly responsible for the bad behaviour at Prime Minister's Questions. In an exclusive interview with Sky News Stand Up Be Counted members, John Bercow MP said: "Do I accept some share of the responsibility for putting it right? I do."

PMQs Bad Behaviour Not 'All Down To Speaker'

In an exclusive interview with Sky News Stand Up Be Counted members, John Bercow said: "Do I accept some share of the responsibility for putting it right? I do."

Rachel Reeves: Tory MP a dinosaur saying mums can't handle top jobs

telegraph.co.uk — The Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary is pregnant. At some point that baby will arrive, and she'll take some time off to look after it. This isn't unusual: 300,000 women take maternity leave every year. The world doesn't end - someone covers their job. No biggie. However, Andrew Rosindell is worried.

Esther McVey - the 'vacuous airbag' who wants to be Prime Minister - Telegraph

telegraph.co.uk — "Sorry Est, PM means 'Prime Minister' not Pre-Menstrual. Only thing she might be suited to is a Pole-dancer." On first inspection, the usual drivel. But on closer examination, one theme did strike me. Esther McVey was a "cocky, obnoxious, arrogant, big-headed woman", according to the public. She was "Lady Macbeth".

Labour's pink bus stinks: here's why

telegraph.co.uk — There's a lot to like about the women's campaign, which will focus on key issues like childcare, family care, equal pay and tackling domestic violence. At the last election 9.1 million women didn't vote, and young women in particular are disproportionately switched off from the election process.

The New Homeless In America's Wealthy Capital

news.sky.com — In one of the richest and most powerful cities in America, homelessness is reaching crisis point - a record 4,000 people are in emergency shelters in Washington DC, many of them children. The easiest way to explain away homelessness is to make it personal: drug abuse, mental health issues, alcoholism.

Michelle Obama's Saudia Arabia headscarf snub was deliberate

telegraph.co.uk — Make no mistake: this was a deliberate decision by the First Lady. She and her advisers will have been well aware of expectations in the ultraconservative Saudi Arabia. They will have known her outfit choice would attract attention away from the role of her husband, Barack Obama, who cut short a trip to India in order to lead a parade of dignitaries in Riyadh, paying respect after King Abdullah's death.

Digital Democracy: Call For Online Voting

news.sky.com — Online voting should be introduced by 2020 to improve democracy and engage more people in politics, according to a parliamentary commission. Social media and online campaigning is expected to have a huge influence on the General Election in four months' time.

Republican women taking on Hillary Clinton for female vote

telegraph.co.uk — Say again? "Washington's full of big spenders. Let's make 'em squeal." Hillary Clinton may be playing the starring female role in the current Washington cast of characters - but it's the Republican women who never cease to intrigue. I've swapped Westminster for Capitol Hill for a few weeks, and it's undeniable: the right-wing ladies here are fascinating.
