New blitz on freed jihadis: Are these jailed fanatics now back on our streets?

Police last night made the first arrest in a new blitz on convicted terrorists who are free to walk our streets.

An Islamist jailed alongside London Bridge killer Usman Khan was dramatically held for allegedly plotting a fresh atrocity.

Nazam Hussain, 34, was detained just hours after Boris Johnson announced a top-level review into the licence conditions of 74 convicted terrorists who are now out of jail.

Hussain was originally jailed in 2012 as part of a terror cell which was plotting to attack the London Stock Exchange and other high-profile targets in the City of London.

His arrest means new offences were allegedly discovered within hours of the review being demanded – raising serious questions about how convicted terrorists are supervised after being freed from jail.

The police move came two days after Khan, 28, murdered two people at a prisoner rehabilitation conference less than a year after being released from prison. 

His second victim was yesterday named as former Cambridge University student Saskia Jones, 23, who had recently applied to join the police.  

On Sunday evening police were seen doing a last minute search by torchlight of London Bridge before reopening it.

She had been volunteering at the conference at Fishmongers’ Hall, near London Bridge, when Khan began his rampage on Friday afternoon.

Miss Jones’ family paid tribute to her ‘funny, kind, positive influence’ and said she was ‘generous to the point of always wanting to see the best in all people’.

Specialist officers from the West Midlands Counter-Terrorism Unit arrested Hussain in Stoke-on-Trent yesterday. 

Sources confirmed he was being held ‘on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts’.

He’ll end up in hell, says his Imam

The Imam of the mosque where London Bridge terrorist Usman Khan worshipped as a child yesterday condemned the attack.

Abdul Qadir Hashmi said his actions ‘cannot be justified under any circumstances’ and according to his religion the killer would ‘end up in hell’.

Khan grew up in the Cobridge area of Stoke-on-Trent and attended the Ghausia Mosque, before he left home in his late teens.

Imam Hashmi said the community’s thoughts were with the victims. He said: ‘My prayers are with the victims and relatives of those who were killed. Our thoughts and sympathies are with the victims of this terrible act.

‘As Imam, I condemn any killing of innocent human beings. The religion I practice day in day out has no connection with those who choose to kill innocent people. The actions of this young man are wrong and cannot be justified under any circumstances. The Koran is clear, anyone who kills anyone else unjustly will end up in hell, no two ways about it.’

Police continued to search the home where Khan’s parents live yesterday and the Imam also said his thoughts were with the killer’s family. ‘The parents are as helpless as anyone else because they had no control over their child’s actions,’ he said.

He is believed to have been freed from jail less than a year ago, at roughly the same time as Khan. In other developments it emerged that:

  • Khan – who schoolfriends said used to carry a photo of Osama bin Laden – was poised to begin a course at Cambridge University;
  • The authorities forced him to be accompanied by an escort on a previous trip to London in March but this time he was allowed to travel to the capital alone by train;
  • The killer had been seen driving a taxi in his home town of Stoke-on-Trent;
  • Britain’s most notorious hate preacher Anjem Choudary claimed Khan and Hussain were ‘entirely innocent’ when they were jailed for the Stock Exchange plot in 2012.

Mr Johnson yesterday pledged to toughen anti-terror laws and said it was ‘repulsive’ that someone as dangerous as Khan had served only eight years behind bars after plotting to carry out acts of terrorism.

The Prime Minister told BBC1’s Andrew Marr Show: ‘I think it is ridiculous, I think it is repulsive, that individuals as dangerous as this man should be allowed out after serving only eight years and that’s why we are going to change the law.’

He blamed Labour for changing to the law in 2008 so offenders serving Khan’s type of jail term were automatically released without a parole hearing after serving half of it.

‘I’m sure people can imagine what we’re doing to ensure that 74 other individuals who’ve been let out early on the basis of this Labour change in legislation, they are being properly invigilated to make sure there is no threat,’ the Prime Minister said.

Ministry of Justice officials are understood to be going through emails and phone records to ensure that licensing conditions are being met, as reported by The Telegraph. 

Mr Corbyn argued that cuts to public services had contributed to the attack on Friday. 

Khan was on licence and wearing a GPS monitoring tag when he attended the conference on prisoner rehabilitation hosted by a Cambridge University scheme called Learning Together at Fishmongers’ Hall.

The other person killed was Jack Merritt, 25, from Cottenham, Cambridgeshire, who worked in the university’s criminology department.

His grieving family said he was a ‘beautiful, talented boy’ who died ‘doing what he loved’. Floral tributes were placed at the scene in memory of Mr Merritt yesterday, including a sign which read: ‘I love you forever. I am so so proud of you.’

Both the victims were killed inside the building before Khan was bundled outside where he was overpowered by members of the public and then shot dead by police.

Two other victims remain in a stable condition in hospital. A third has been allowed home.

Khan had applied for a ‘continuing education’ course at Cambridge University and was due to begin studying there within weeks. 

Security services are analysing all the electronic devices seized from his address in Stafford to work out how long he had been planning the attack and whether anyone else was involved.

One Whitehall source said: ‘It is still quite a puzzle as to how someone who appeared to be a reformed character decided to do this.’

Khan was among the 3,000 terrorists being monitored by the security services, but he was not under round-the-clock surveillance, it is understood.

To have monitored him any more closely would have taken resources away from someone known to be planning an attack, sources said.

Khan and Hussain are both thought have been disciples of hate preacher Anjem Choudary.

They had both planned to travel to Pakistan in January 2011, but were arrested shortly before leaving. 

Dr Rakib Ehsan, research fellow at security think-tank the Henry Jackson Society, said: ‘A more uncompromising approach must be taken when dealing with those who have been found guilty of such crimes, in the name of broader public safety.

‘The 74 other released jihadists are likely to include those who continue to pose a threat to society.

‘We know Usman Khan’s original co-conspirators to be amongst the most hardened jihadists. All were convicted for involvement with plotting to carry out deadly terrorist attacks on locations including the London Stock Exchange.

‘In light of the deadly act of terror on Friday, there is a strong case for other plotters who have been released from prison, to be recalled immediately by the authorities. These are dangerous people who all could pose a similar risk to society.’

A police spokesman said: ‘Officers from the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit have arrested a man in Stoke-on-Trent. A search warrant was conducted… in connection to a wider on-going review of existing licence conditions of convicted terrorism offenders.

‘As a result of a search of his home address, the 34-year-old was arrested on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts contrary to Section 5 of the Terrorism Act 2006.

‘These searches continue.’

Jail time is up – so are these fanatics back on the streets?

Сколько стоит быть владельцем футбольного клуба минского «Динамо»?


Минский футбольный клуб «Динамо» во время чемпионата Беларуси-2019 в футболе
Минский футбольный клуб «Динамо» во время чемпионата Беларуси-2019 в футболе

Один из самых известных футбольных клубов страны не может найти собственника. Свобода попыталась разобраться, почему.

8:1

16 августа 2018 года в российском Санкт-Петербурге местный «Зенит» принимал минское «Динамо» в рамках квалификационного турнира Лиги Европы. Первый матч в Минске российский клуб сенсационное проиграл с разгромным счетом 0: 4. Шансов отыграться и пройти в следующий раунд было немного. Однако в итоге россияне еще более сенсационные выиграли у «Динамо» (Минск) — 8: 1.

Для белорусского клуба эта игра закончилась не только позором (в футбольном среде до сих пор ходят слухи, что матч был заранее условленном), но и потерей владельца. Юрий Чиж , которому «Динамо» принадлежало 20 лет, больше никогда не появлялся на стадионе и фактически отказался от управления клубом. Сначала бизнесмен собирался продать «Динамо», однако в итоге решения хозяйственного суда избавился его без денежной компенсации. Судья решил, что Юрий Чиж все 20 лет владел «Динамо» незаконно. Клуб передали на баланс Мингорисполкома.

Гуцериев и Прокопеня

23 октября в течение одного дня «Динамо» (Минск) «изменила» владельца аж четыре раза. В начале издание «Прессбол» сообщила, что клуб приобретает известный предприниматель Виктор Прокопеня .

Всего через несколько часов после этого TUT.BY уточнил информацию коллег — клубом «Динамо» (Минск) будут обладать сразу несколько IT-компаний, в том числе одна из компаний Пракапени. Однако уже во второй половине дня сайт dev.by, который специализируется на информации о развитии белорусского IT-сфере, опроверг сообщения «Прессбол» и TUT.BY. Завершилась история новостью от сайта naviny.by , который со ссылкой на собственные источники в бизнес-кругах информировал — «Динамо» приобретет приближенный к Александру Лукашенко российский олигарх Михаил Гуцериев . При этом никаких официальных комментариев ни от Виктора Пракапени, ни от Михаила Гуцериевым и связанных с ними компаний об этом пока не было.

Прокопеня и другие айтишники будут финансировать минский футбольный клуб «Динамо», — Tut.by

Слухи о том, что один из самых известных футбольных клубов страны приобретут Виктор Прокопеня или Михаил Гуцериев являются не впервые. Говорить об этом начали примерно год назад. Примерно тогда же в качестве нового владельца столичного футбольного клуба называлась корпорация Wargaiming, однако позже о ней говорить перестали. Прокопеню, кстати, видели на стадионе во время матча «Динамо» против «Витебска», который столичный клуб проиграл со счетом 0: 2. Бизнесмен выдержал только один тайм.

10 миллионов долларов за год

Бюджеты белорусских футбольных клубов обычно являются закрытой информацией, в СМИ попадают только их примерные размеры. Владелец брестского «Динамо» Александр Зайцев году рассказал, что бюджет его клуба составляет 10 миллионов долларов. Это большие цифры для Беларуси. Годовой бюджет борисовского БАТЭ, например, оценивается в 3-4 миллиона долларов за год; солигорского «Шахтера», который финансирует «Белкалий», — 4-5 миллионов долларов.

В ходе обсуждения возможного приобретения «Динамо» (Минск) новым собственником в качестве предполагаемых ежегодных затрат на клуб называется цифра 10 миллионов долларов. Ее происхождение назвать сложно. По приблизительным оценкам, в настоящее время бюджет «Динамо» меньше 3 миллионов долларов в год. Что, в свою очередь, уже сказывается на результатах. Столичный клуб впервые за много лет может закончить сезон вне тройкой призеров.

В высшей футбольной лиге Беларуси захотели уменьшит количество клубов из Минска

Причин, по которым Мингорисполком может хотеть продать «Динамо», несколько. Во-первых, столичные власти уже имеют свой футбольный клуб «Минск», который также играет в Высшей лиге (а еще женскую команду «Минск», которая в этом году дошла до 1/8 розыгрыша Лиги чемпионов). Вторая — деньги на финансирование. Третья — правила UEFA, которые запрещают играть в одной лиге двум клубом, принадлежащих одной юридическому лицу. Если в этом сезоне «Динамо» (Минск) еще смогло играть против ФК «Минск» (заявка на участие в соревнованиях казалось, еще когда собственником клуба был Юрий Чиж), то со следующим сезоном могут быть проблемы.

Следует также добавить, что заработать на футболе в Беларуси очень сложно. Пока такое удавалось только Анатолию Капскому с БАТЭ, который сейчас фактически обеспечивает себя самостоятельно через постоянное участие в еврокубках (UEFA платить за это немалые для белорусских клубов деньги), а также через продажу футболистов иностранным клубом. Александр Зайцев, который приобрел брестское «Динамо», уже несколько лет только вкладывает в клуб собственные средства. Все другие белорусские команды в различной степени (в основном полностью) финансируются за счет госбюджета и не приносят прибыли.

Как в Беларуси игнорируют права собственности. На примере футбольного клуба «Динамо»

Что будет, если «Динамо» так никто и не купит

Такой вариант тоже возможен. Наиболее вероятное развитие событий — объединение с ФК «Минск». Слухи об этом ходили весной 2019 года.

Объединения двух футбольных клубов в один в Беларуси периодически случаются. Например, после прошлого сезона это сделали минский ФК «Луч» и могилевский «Днепр». В результате образовалась команда из официальным названием «Днепр-МЧЗ».

Каким может быть объединение «Динамо» (Минск) и ФК «Минск», сказать сложно, но у такого решения много критиков. В первую очередь потому, что ФК «Минск» специализируется на подготовке молодых футболистов и успешно справляется со своей задачей. Его воспитанники ежегодно переходят в более богатые клубы Беларуси и зарубежья. В случае объединения со столичным «Динамо» эта практика может исчезнуть, потому что целью «Динамо» (Минск) всегда было чемпионство и выступление в еврокубках, а делать это, опираясь на 18-20-летних белорусских футболистов, невозможно.

Еще один вариант развития событий — расформировании «Динамо» или перевод в низшую лигу (в данном случае — в другую). Однако такой вариант почти не рассматривается специалистами как реальный. Все-таки ФК «Динамо» (Минск) — познавательный белорусский спортивный бренд, за судьбой которого следит в том числе руководитель страны. Поэтому можно не сомневаться, что в следующем сезоне клуб вновь попытается бороться за чемпионство. Вопрос только — чьей ценой?

Sydney Instagram models at war as one is exposed as a $15,000-per-week escort

Instagram model Sophia Alia has lashed out at fellow influencer Nicole Shiraz for cutting her out of a business venture after discovering she was working as an escort.

The women, who have a combined 230,000 followers and both live between Sydney and Los Angeles, planned to launch a range of sunglasses together, before their friendship soured last year.

‘It broke my heart that she’d use the sex industry against me. I am owning what I do,’ said Ms Alia, who makes up to $15,000 per week as an escort.

The women, both 24, visited China together last year on a ‘research trip’ for their brand, which they had initially planned to call Shade. 

After discovering Ms Alia’s profession, Ms Shiraz apparently decided to continue with the project alone, which she launched in July under the name Shiraz

‘I make my money legally, I pay my taxes, so why should I be shunned from my own business venture because of my profession?’ said Ms Alia.

‘That is called discrimination. Nicole was quite happy to take my money. Despite her criticism about the way I earned it, she couldn’t even return the funds to me.’

Ms Alia, who had a ‘sugar daddy’ in Los Angeles before she turned to escorting in Sydney, told Daily Mail Australia she is proud to work in the sex industry. 

When contacted for comment, Ms Shiraz acknowledged she was shocked to discover Ms Alia’s career, as she was under the impression her friend was simply a makeup artist. 

‘There was no combined effort. There is a difference between throwing around ideas and actually working putting in the work,’ said Ms Shiraz.

Ms Shiraz claimed that ‘no money’ was taken from Sophia, and insisted the only cost she endured was for a domain name, which was never used.

She added that they both funded their ‘research trip’ to China, but she later found a manufacturer independently in Italy, six months later. 

The beauty also denied ‘discriminating’ against her friend’s profession.

Ms Alia and Ms Shiraz have both made headlines in the past due to their associations with famous American rappers.

On Tuesday, Ms Shiraz was pictured boarding a luxury yacht on Sydney Harbour for an ‘Instagram model party’ hosted by Tyga.

Ms Alia, who was not at the party, had previously spent time with Tyga during his last visit to Australia in January.

Last year, Ms Alia went viral when she featured in a leaked video in which she exposed her breasts in a car with U.S. hip hop star Offset.

The footage, which was filmed in 2017, surfaced in December, just hours after rap superstar Cardi B announced her split from Offset.

Cardi B and the Migos hitmaker later reconciled.

JAN MOIR: With those Disney dimples, Jennifer Arcuri was perfect for panto

She’s behind you! Don’t look now Boris, but Jennifer Arcuri has arrived just in time for the pantomime season.

Puss in Boots? Beauty and the Beastly? It is too soon to say. But with her Cinderella hair, that iron-jawed kale-crunching California smile and those astonishing Disney dimples, sunny Jen was simply born to stride across a stage in buckled shoes shouting: ‘Oh no I didn’t!’ while slapping her velvet clad thighs.

Oh yes she did?

At breakfast time yesterday it was up to Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid to find out if there was a poisoned pip at the heart of her panto apple.

Businesswoman Jennifer Arcuri is miffed about being objectified in the UK as 'an ex-model pole dancer'

Thrilled with a world-exclusive interview, Good Morning Britain (ITV) devoted a whole hour to the woman at the centre of allegations concerning her relationship with PM Boris Johnson when he was mayor of London. 

Straight away, successful businesswoman Jennifer established that she was miffed about being objectified in the UK as ‘an ex-model pole dancer’.

Whatevs, but Piers was keen to know what role the pole in her Shoreditch flat had played in their friendship. This led to the following astonishing interlude.

‘Did you ever use the pole when Boris was there?’

‘Oh God no. Categorically not.’

‘Did Boris ever use the pole?’

No one could have weaponised her answer had she simply denied the rumours. Yet she chose not to, while Piers and Susanna took her slur in their stride

So she asked again. What was the nature of their relationship? ‘It’s really not anyone’s business what private life we had,’ said Arcuri, adding; ‘I’m not going to be put in a position where you weaponise my answer. What a bunch of churlish little guttersnipes’

‘I am never going to tell you that,’ said Miss Arcuri, dimpling attractively as the nation choked on its cereal.

The thought of the pinstriped Boris buttocks clamped around a pole in fashionable East London was too much for many to bear.

Arcuri also couldn’t tell her host exactly how many times Boris had visited her flat. For a Tech Entrepreneur – which is how GMB billed her – Jennifer seemed woefully unsure of numbers.

‘Five, ten times, a handful of times?’, she shrugged.

‘What is a handful, Jennifer? asked Piers, solemnly. What indeed.

Susanna had on her best ‘I’m A Feminist, Too’ face while going in for the kill. She clearly didn’t seem to believe that there could be friendship between male and female colleagues without intimacy, even though she works with Piers every day. 

So she asked again. What was the nature of their relationship? ‘It’s really not anyone’s business what private life we had,’ said Arcuri, adding; ‘I’m not going to be put in a position where you weaponise my answer. What a bunch of churlish little guttersnipes.’

Jennifer Arcuri was evasive when interviewers tried to pin her down on rumours she had an ‘affair’ with Boris Johnson – and couldn’t even say exactly how many times he had visited her flat

No one could have weaponised her answer had she simply denied the rumours. Yet she chose not to, while Piers and Susanna took her slur in their stride.

Throughout the interview they were more dogged than a dog yoga festival on the Isle of Dogs on a dog day afternoon when everyone was doing the downward dog.

Their persistence reminded me of that terrible night back in 1996 when Richard and Judy interviewed OJ Simpson on their evening television show, and tried to winkle a murder confession out of him before the ad break and a song from Neil Diamond. I recall that the build-up was huge. ‘He is one of the most controversial men in the world,’ said OJ of Richard. Or was it the other way around?

Anyway, Judy was so wound up she said ‘c*ck up’ on air, which was just about as bad as showing off her bra at the Brit Awards four years later.

In short what I am saying is this; thank God for Piers and Susanna. Their attempt to ascertain just how close Boris Johnson and Jennifer Arcuri really were is not scurrilous, but germane to any future investigation of his conduct.

At the end of the day – and indeed the start of the morning – good journalism is all about someone knocking on a door, picking up a phone, clipping on a mic and asking an embarrassing question.

Unusually, everyone came out of this interview well, not least Jennifer Arcuri herself. She emerged as a winning character – ebullient, confident and with an eccentric charm.

I liked her apparent loyalty and the fact that she clearly is no lady victim, sobbing into her lace handkerchief as the man she says she bonded with over Shakespeare texts pedals off into the sunset. Who knows what will happen next, however. Et tu, Boris? Only time will tell.

Jennifer Arcuri has insisted there was nothing inappropriate about her friendship with Boris Johnson

Artie Lange wants to make up with Howard Stern following drug-fueled departure from his radio show

Artie Lange extended an olive branch to his former boss Howard Stern on the latest episode of podcast host Steve Grillo's 'AftershockXL' show, set to air Wednesday

An entire decade after their high-profile split, it appears shock jock Howard Stern and his ex-sidekick Artie Lange, the former dynamic duo of no-holds-barred talk radio, are overdue for a reunion.

It was Stern who fired Lang in 2009 after the comedian’s notorious drug addiction imperiled his work and ruined his relationship with the King of All Media.

Stern has expressed some recent misgivings about how things went down with Lange, whose years-long battle with addiction hit a low point earlier this year.

The 51-year-old’s fellow comedians begged him to seek professional help after he tested positive for cocaine use twice in two months and was arrested in January and February, according to NJ.com.

The fallen star was reportedly living in a halfway house in May when a Twitter user shot video of him working a new job pumping gas to comply with the terms of his probation.

‘If this gets back to Howard, tell him I love him. I love him to death and I miss him,’ Lange told the man shooting the video. ‘I gotta pump gas. I’ll be back on stage soon though. I promise.’

Lange told 'AftershockXL' podcast host Steve 'Gorilla' Grillo reading Stern's remarks made him 'feel terrible'

Seven days later, sheriff deputies in Essex County New Jersey booked Lang on a warrant for violating his drug probation. 

All the negative news about his former friend seemed to take a toll on Stern who told the New York Times the same month that he ‘loves’ Lange, but that the two have ‘lost touch.’

‘That’s my doing,’ Stern said. ‘I don’t want to do anything that would rock his boat.’

Lange told ‘AftershockXL’ podcast host Steve ‘Gorilla’ Grillo reading Stern’s remarks made him ‘feel terrible.’

Page Six obtained an advanced copy of the interview, which is set to air on YouTube on Wednesday.

‘Sounds like Howard has some guilt about firing me or whatever,’ Lange said. ‘There should be no guilt on Howard’s part. Howard did nothing wrong. All Howard did was try to help me. I love him so much.’ 

Essex County Prosecutor spokeswoman Katherine Carter said Lange was arrested for being ‘non-compliant with his drug court requirements’ in May, but Sheriff Armando Fontoura noted at the time that Lange ‘looked sober’ and ‘sounded good.’

He’s reportedly been sober for eight months and said he wants to apologize to Stern for their falling out.

The twosome have talked over the phone since Lange left Stern’s show, but Lange never said he was sorry for his behavior or the break up.

‘I’m going to call him one of these days,’ Lange said.

Beto O’Rourke says Texans told him ‘they do not need’ their AR-15s and would happily turn them over

Democratic presidential nominee hopeful Beto O’Rourke said Friday that his fellow Texans have said that they ‘don’t need’ their AR-15s and that they’ll turn them in if it means keeping the population safer. 

O’Rourke, 46, who was born in El Paso, Texas, where 22 people died in a mass shooting in early August, has been hitting the gun control argument hard during his campaign and said during Thursday night’s Democratic presidential debate that he would take away military-style assault rifles from gun owners.  

During an MSNBC interview Friday, the former Texas congressman said that owning ‘guns to hunt or for self-defense makes a lot of sense to us here in Texas,’ but that a ‘weapon of war’ is unnecessary.

Beto O’Rourke said Friday that he has spoken with Texas gun owners who would be happy to give up their AR-15 rifles if necessary, if it means keeping the population safer

He added that ‘even from those Texans who own AR-15s, they’ve told me this themselves ― “I don’t need this. I don’t need it to hunt, I don’t need it to protect myself. It was fun to use. I like taking it out to the range, but if giving this back, or cutting it to pieces, or selling it to the government helps to keep us safer, then by all means, let’s do it.”‘ 

He said that these sentiments were shared with him by people including parents who were concerned about the children’s safety in schools, in the wake of multiple mass shootings around the country which have involved AR-15-style rifles and have resulted in high death tolls.

During the Thursday night debate, O’Rourke said: ‘Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47. We’re not going to allow it to be used against our fellow Americans anymore.’ 

His statement prompted Republican Texas House of Representatives member Briscoe Cain, 34, to tweet, ‘My AR is ready for you Robert Francis,’ a statement which O’Rourke – whose first and middle names are Robert Francis – promptly called ‘a death threat.’

Cain’s tweet has since been removed for violating Twitter’s ‘rules for threats of violence.’ 

While speaking with MSNBC, O’Rourke said that he was proposing a mandatory buyback of the military-style assault rifles, in which the government would give gun owners a fair market price for their ‘weapon of war.’ 

‘It’s expecting Americans to follow the law,’ he said. 

He added that he was also willing to listen to alternative methods of ensuring that these types of guns would not be used to slaughter people in the streets, as well.    

O’Rourke’s assault rifle buyback idea comes in the way of two mass shootings in Texas within 30 days. 

On August 3, a gunman killed 22 people and wounded 26 at an El Paso Walmart. Then, on August 31, a shooting spree between Texas’ Odessa and Midland left seven dead and 21 wounded.

Главный тренер минского хоккейного клуба «Юность» Михаил Захаров назначен главным тренером хоккейной сборной Беларуси, пишет БелТА . Контракт с ним заключили на два года.

Miley Cyrus ‘went back to her old partying ways’ after marrying Liam Hemsworth

Liam Hemsworth and  Miley Cyrus are never getting back together, according to friends of the Australian actor.

A source told NW magazine that Liam couldn’t handle the fact Miley had reverted back to her old partying ways after they got married last December.

‘Liam is sick of being humiliated. And the way she’s acting, she’s doing an excellent job of making sure he won’t go back,’ they said.

Miley released a break-up ballad titled Slide Away last week, in which she sings about drug and alcohol use and moving on, amid her split from Liam. 

The telling chorus appears to hint Liam will relocate to Byron Bay, as she repeats: ‘So won’t you slide away? Back to the ocean, I’ll go back to the city lights.’

Lyrics also allude to their younger years, as she sings, ‘Move on, we’re not 17/I’m not who I used to be/You said that everything changed/You’re right I’m grown now.’

‘As soon as they tied the knot, she went back to her old ways, partying,’ the source claimed.

They added: ‘They might have been on and off in the past, but this time it’s really it!’

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Liam and Miley’s management for comment.

It comes after The Sun claimed Liam’s family was begging him to ‘cut off all contact with the Nothing Breaks Like A Heart singer. 

According to the publication, the Hemsworths were deeply concerned that Liam, 29, would reconcile with Miley, 26, after their split was announced this month.

A source said: ‘Miley and Liam both keep saying the word “separated”, not “divorcing”, which has his family really worried they’re leaving the door open to get back together in the future.’

The insider added: ‘[Their marriage] has been toxic for way too long. They’re not meant to be together.’

A representative for Miley confirmed the split this month, by releasing a statement: ‘Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time. Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers.’  

‘They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy.’ 

While the pair didn’t confirm their break-up until this month, it’s believed they actually called it quits in June after ‘drifting apart’.

The last known footage of them together was from July 9 during an appearance in California, but they looked decidedly unhappy.

Insiders revealed to Page Six that Liam was hoping to have a ‘a normal, settled-down life’, while the Can’t Be Tamed hit-maker headed back to her famously wild ways.   

After announcing their split, allegations have sprung from both sides concerning the reasons for the demise of their marriage, including claims that Liam was abusing ‘certain substances’ and that Miley is ‘immature’. 

Following their initial split in 2013 Miley famously shed her wholesome girl-next-door image, opting instead for sexually provocative outfits and outrageous behavior, culminating in her notorious appearance at the VMAs with Robin Thicke.

After toning down her wild ways when they reunited in 2016, sources claimed that the return to ‘old Miley’ and her subsequent raucous behavior caused an issue for Liam.

Liam broke his silence on Tuesday, two days after pictures of Miley kissing Brody Jenner’s blogger ex-Wife Kaitlynn Carter emerged.

He shared a photo to Instagram of a beach at sunset alongside a brief caption addressed to his fans after it was claimed that they have been separated for months.

He wrote: ‘Hi all. Just a quick note to say that Miley and I have recently separated and I wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward… Peace and Love.’

Miley and Liam married last December in her native Tennessee after an on-off romance that began when they co-starred in the 2010 movie The Last Song.

Mourners, including Beto O’Rourke, attend the first funeral for a victim of the El Paso shooting

The first funeral for one of the victims of the El Paso Walmart massacre was held on Wednesday, and friends and family were joined Thursday by U.S. Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke as they gathered in Mexico for the service of Elsa Mendoza de la Mora.

A Mexican national, the elementary school principal, 57, was one of the 22 people killed in the massacre that claimed eight of her fellow countrymen.

Her remains were transported from Texas across the border by a motorcade, arriving at midday at a funeral home in Ciudad Juárez, where her family resides. 

O’Rourke, who was born and raised in El Paso, walked across the Rio del Norte International border bridge to attend Mendoza de la Mora’s services.

‘The only way to truly demonstrate how closely knit these communities are is for me to walk over and be with those who have suffered and to give my condolences to the people of Ciudad Juárez in Ciudad Juárez,’ O’Rourke told reporters Thursday afternoon. 

‘This feels like the right thing to do and it feels very much like what we’ve always done in this binational community.’

It was his second trip to Ciudad Juárez after he visited the border city in June to meet with asylum seekers.

A relative of the victim told AFP that Mendoza de la Mora’s husband, Antonio de la Mora, and their son, Pablo de la Mora, were driving her to the airport in El Paso before they made a quick stop at the Walmart. Both remained in the car while she entered the store.

‘Things happened in a matter of seconds. They heard detonations, turned to where the detonations were and saw him [the attacker] entering,’ Adrián Valverde said.

‘They were very surprised, Pablo got out of the car and Toño [her husband] moved the vehicle and the police arrived in a few minutes and didn’t allow them to do much.’

The funeral service was the first of many that will be held in the coming days after the 21-year-old suspect, Patrick Crusius, a self-declared white supremacist, drove almost 10 hours from Allen, Texas, to carry out the attack at the El Paso mall.

O’Rourke, the former congressman from Texas, cancelled his scheduled campaign appearances in Iowa this weekend, the state that holds the first caucuses in the Democratic nomination process. 

The candidate is missing several high-profile events – the state fair and local Democratic party gatherings that are considered key to winning the state – to stay in El Paso.

During his time Ciudad Juárez, O’Rourke was expected  meet with local officials, including Chihuahua Governor Javier Corral Jurado and Ciudad Juárez Mayor Armando Cabada. 

O’Rourke, however, said he will return to the presidential campaign trail.

‘I will pursue the nomination of our party to serve our country as president of the United States,’ he told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. ‘But right now I’m going to focus on my community, on our family, on those families who are grieving right now and on those families who have somebody who’s not yet out of the woods.’ 

He added: ‘This is the right place for me to be right now.’ 

O’Rourke has not held back in his attacks on the president, calling him a ‘racist’ and comparing life in the United States under his presidency to Nazi Germany. 

‘Jesus Christ, of course he’s a racist,’ O’Rourke told MSNBC on Monday.

Just 20 minutes before the massacre, Crusius left a 2,300-word manifesto that raged about the ‘Hispanic invasion of Texas’ and echoed language used by Donald Trump on the campaign trail. The FBI is treating the shooting as a domestic terrorism attack.

Mendoza de la Mora was born in Yepomera, Chihuahua. She taught and later became the principal at Club de Leones Rafael Veloz elementary school.

Staffers placed a black ribbon in the middle of a sign at the main school entrance to honor the shooting victim.

Private services were scheduled to continued Thursday for Mendoza de la Mora’s burial. 

Mexican news outlet El Diario de Juarez reported that further funeral services were scheduled for married couple Alfonso Cerros and Sara Regalado, who were also murdered in the attack.

Boris is set to be named PM TODAY amid massive Tory Brexit mutiny

Boris Johnson is gearing up for a huge Brexit battle today as the Tories prepare to install him as their new leader.

Barring a last-minute shock, Mr Johnson will be named as the new Conservative chief at 11.45am following a bruising six-week contest against rival Jeremy Hunt.

Mr Johnson refused to answer questions from reporters as he arrived at his campaign base this morning, merely saying it was ‘all to play for’. 

He is already plotting his next move, with allies determined to forge ahead with multi-billion pound promises to cut taxes – even if it means increasing government borrowing.  

However, Mr Johnson is also facing a potentially catastrophic Tory mutiny as MPs mobilise against his ‘do or die’ vow to secure Brexit by Halloween – even if it means crashing out without an agreement. 

Justice Secretary David Gauke – one of at least half-a-dozen ministers who have said they will quit rather than serve under Mr Johnson – issued a stark warning this morning that Parliament will find a way to block No Deal.

After Sir Alan Duncan quit as Foreign Office minister yesterday in an abortive effort to force a confidence vote to block Mr Johnson becoming PM, the leadership front runner embarked on a charm offensive last night. 

He held talks with Chancellor Philip Hammond and Mr Gauke, but while discussions were ‘friendly’ they did not back down on their opposition to No Deal.

Sources in Mr Johnson’s camp are predicting he will secure more than 60 per cent of the vote, giving him a ‘free hand’ to sack his enemies and steer the Tories on a new course. 

He has planned a short acceptance speech in which he will repeat his campaign pledge to take Britain out of the EU on October 31, with or without a deal, and urge his party to turn its guns on Jeremy Corbyn.

But he is also expected to make an appeal for party unity following a fractious campaign which has seen Tory Remainers vow to bring down his government if he tries to pursue a No Deal exit. 

Yesterday, Sir Alan – Mr Johnson’s former deputy – dramatically quit as Foreign Office minister in an apparent bid to prevent him becoming PM.

Sir Alan, a long-time critic of Mr Johnson, invoked the Queen as he attempted to force a confidence vote in the Commons today – but the move was ruled out by the Speaker John Bercow. 

International development secretary Rory Stewart also informed Mr Johnson yesterday that he would be resigning from the Cabinet before he takes power, following the lead set by Philip Hammond and justice secretary David Gauke.

Mr Stewart indicated he would join the band of Remainer rebels on the Tory backbenches, saying: ‘There is a majority of two, and I have at least three friends.’ 

In all, up to a dozen ministers are expected to jump ship in the next 36 hours before Mr Johnson officially becomes PM tomorrow afternoon.

Milkshakes tax ‘bomb’ left by May

Theresa May pressed ahead with plans for a tax on milkshakes last night – even though Boris Johnson has warned it will be scrapped if he gets into No 10.

In one of her final acts, the Prime Minister published proposals in a green paper to extend the levy on sugary drinks – despite warnings from Health Secretary Matt Hancock that they should be put on hold until a new PM is in place.

A source said: ‘Matt’s view was that the paper should be held so it is not seen as her thing and then killed off by Boris.’ 

Mr Johnson has pledged to stop the rollout of ‘sin taxes’, specifically warning that one on milkshakes would ‘clobber’ the poor.

Allies of Mr Johnson insist he is determined to ensure his premiership is not only about Brexit.

They want to push a new insurance system for social care, boost schools funding and increase the higher tax threshold to £80,000.

During the campaign Mr Johnson made spending pledges that have been calculated at more than £26billion – the estimated headroom Mr Hammond left in the public finances to account for Brexit disruption.  

He wants to raise the national Insurance threshold to £12,500 to help low earners, which would cost around £11billion, increase the minimum wage, and cut stamp duty. 

But supporters of Mr Johnson told the Telegraph he would press ahead with key policies by borrowing if necessary.

‘We are talking about a fiscal loosening of less than 1 per cent of total public spending. It would do a lot to get things moving for the middle classes, to get them spending more money,’ one aide said.

A former minister in Mr Johnson’s camp added: ‘In order to honour Boris’s spending pledges, the next budget is going to have to put a temporary freeze on deficit reduction. 

‘Of course it is important to continue fixing the roof but there is going to have to be some flexibility there to give the economy the post-Brexit boost that it needs.’

On the eve of what is likely to be a dramatic few days, former prime ministers Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and John Major warned Mr Johnson that pursuing a No Deal Brexit would end in disaster.

Newly elected Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson also predicted she could become prime minister if Mr Johnson is forced to call a snap election this year.

If Mr Johnson is elected as Tory leader today he will formally become prime minister tomorrow. 

Mrs May will take a final session of PMQs in the Commons before travelling to Buckingham palace to inform the Queen of her resignation.

Whitehall sources said that, despite the government’s slender majority, Her Majesty is then expected to send for Mr Johnson.

The former foreign secretary will then begin an immediate Cabinet reshuffle. 

Casualties are expected to include Mrs May’s deputy David Lidington, the business secretary Greg Clark and the Northern Ireland secretary Karen Bradley.

Mr Johnson is then preparing to make a Commons statement setting out his programme for government on Thursday, just hours before MPs break up for the long summer recess. 

Former Brexit secretary Dominic Raab, who is expected to join the Cabinet, last night played down the prospect of a serious mutiny against the new leader by Tory MPs.

He added: ‘I think the number of troublemakers will be relatively few because it will be so obviously self-indulgent.’ But attitudes among Tory MPs opposed to a No Deal Brexit appeared to be hardening last night.

Mr Stewart revealed that he had been invited for talks with Mr Johnson, but had told him he would rather quit his Cabinet job than serve in a Government prepared to contemplate a No Deal Brexit. Earlier, Sir Alan resigned with a warning that Brexit had placed a ‘dark cloud’ over the country.

The minister, who once described Mr Johnson as a ‘circus act’, wrote to Mr Bercow proposing a Commons vote today on Mr Johnson’s acceptability as PM.

He wrote: ‘This is the first time in our parliamentary history that the prime minister of a minority government has changed in mid-term. 

‘Thus the normal assumption that the succession is automatic cannot be said to apply, and his ability to command a majority in the House should arguably be tested before the Prime Minister can safely advise the Queen who should succeed her.’

After the proposal was rejected, Sir Alan warned of a ‘constitutional crisis’ in the coming months if Mr Johnson loses a confidence vote after becoming PM. 

Another rebel Tory, Philip Lee, said of Mr Johnson: ‘I don’t see how he has got a majority to govern. It’s a very, very fragile situation with only a tiny majority.’ 

In a series of heavyweight warnings yesterday, three former prime ministers spoke out against the risks of pursuing a no-deal Brexit.

Sir John, a high-profile critic of Mr Johnson, said: ‘The new PM must choose whether to be the spokesman for an ultra-Brexit faction, or the servant of the nation he leads.’

Mr Blair said Mr Johnson had ‘boxed himself in to a No Deal Brexit’, while Mr Brown warned of the danger of inflicting ‘peacetime self-inflicted wounds’. 

Could Hunt be sacked if he fails to get a big enough share of vote?

Jeremy Hunt is set to be sacked as foreign secretary tomorrow unless he manages to run Boris Johnson close in the Tory leadership contest.

Allies of Mr Johnson said last night that he would have a ‘free hand’ to demote his rival provided he secures at least 60 per cent of the vote when the result of the contest is revealed today.

Mr Hunt has indicated he wants to stay on as foreign secretary if his leadership bid fails. He is also said to have indicated he would accept an alternative top job, such as chancellor or deputy prime minister.

But allies of Mr Johnson are urging him to demote Mr Hunt following a fractious campaign in which he called his rival a ‘coward’.

Jacob Rees-Mogg, a leading supporter of Mr Johnson, yesterday said Mr Hunt had no right to expect a top job and should stop ‘grandstanding and saying, ‘If I’m not Foreign Secretary I won’t be anything’.

The move came as Mr Johnson and his closest allies spent the day debating the make-up of his first Cabinet.

He is concerned that the reshuffle risks alienating dozens of his backers who have inflated expectations of their prospects. 

He has told friends: ‘It is going to be very difficult to satisfy everyone.’

Another ally said the precise composition of Mr Johnson’s Cabinet would depend on his margin of victory. ‘The first thing is to win, the second is the scale of the victory,’ the source said.

‘If he gets 60 per cent of the vote then he has a free hand. If the lead is 10 points then he is going to be more constrained.’

Sources said the former Brexit minister Chris Heaton-Harris is being considered for the key position of chief whip, although current whips Chris Pincher and Mark Spencer are also said to be in the running.

Liz Truss, Matt Hancock and Sajid Javid are locked in a three-way battle to become Mr Johnson’s Chancellor.

And Mr Johnson is said to be agonising over what, if anything, to offer former defence secretary Gavin Williamson.
