Clegg's Wife Serves Up Ice-Cold Revenge In Cookbook

news.sky.com — If Miriam Gonzalez Durantez's new cookbook is anything to go by, revenge is a dish best served (freezing) cold.

She was murdered on Thursday, shot three times, stabbed and kicked as she lay bleeding on the pavement.

EU referendum - Five female politicians vs one man: Was this the night British politics changed?

telegraph.co.uk — Andrea Leadsom, who has also performed strongly in previous weeks, had another good night last night.
