A Christian politician has questioned the BBC after it was claimed producers chose to partially omit the findings of research they commissioned for a new programme about attitudes towards abortion. According to the Mail on Sunday, the Corporation did not disclose the finding that the majority of people do not support dropping the requirement for two doctors to approve each termination. Christian and Conservative MP for Congleton, Fiona Bruce responded by telling the paper: "How can people be expected to have a fair and proper debate if facts are suppressed?" "It undermines credibility to cherry-pick polling results to reflect a lobby which programme makers may be sympathetic."

US President Donald Trump said Sunday that his administration was “prepared for anything” in connection with North Korea. “We are so prepared like you wouldn’t believe,” he told Fox News. “You would be shocked to see how totally prepared we are, if we need to be.” His comments came with the US Air Force reportedly making plans to equip B-52 strategic bombers with nuclear weapons for the first time since the Cold War and ready them for action.
