  Mane's magic and Gomez's greatness stand out - Liverpool's players rated from the 3-1 win over Arsenal Liverpool came out on top of the first of two meetings this week against Arsenal at Anfield. The Reds ran out 3-1 winners in the Premier League clash after an almost perfect performance. Mikel Arteta’s visiting side were somewhat passive in the opening exchanges as the champions flexed their considerable muscles. However, it was the Gunners who took a surprise lead through Alexandre Lacazette. During a rare Arsenal foray into the Liverpool half, Andy Robertson miscued his clearance directly into the French striker’s path for him to scramble home.

In June this year the actor confronted the reality that he may never find acting work again without 'expressing the "correct" opinion'.

He said it was a 'cause of sadness' at the possible loss of his career and the 'bleak view of my prospects' came after his appearance on Question Time in January.

However, speaking to the Telegraph yesterday, Fox said the reaction after his appearance galvanised him to fight back against the 'very, very angry minority of people who feel that they have absolutely every right to not be offended and therefore can control the language we use'.

He went on to reiterate his unwillingness to 'bend the knee' to show support for the BLM movement, saying that he would never vote Labour while party leader Keir Starmer is at the helm because he did so.

He said that taking the knee is not a gesture of solidarity, but one of subservience.

June 18, 2020: In a piece for the Spectator, Fox, questioned if Meghan Markle stepped down as a working royal because she did not get the 'limelight'

Six days ago, Fox announced he is launching a new political party to fight the 'culture wars' named Reclaim, and he has already raised more than £5million.

The actor has received substantial sums from former Tory donors and hopes to stand dozens of candidates across the UK.

The star says he wants to provide a movement for people who are 'tired of being told that we represent the very thing we have, in history, stood together against'.

It comes as Nigel Farage has also threatened to launch an anti-lockdown party after criticising Boris Johnson's draconian measures to curb the rise in coronavirus cases.

Among Fox's aims in his new party are reforming the BBC and celebrating Britain's contribution to the world, according to The Telegraph.

The party is provisionally called Reclaim and has a website named LaurenceFoxParty.

He hopes to launch the party next month and the name is subject to the Electoral Commission's approval.

His website states: 'Over many years it has become clear that our politicians have lost touch with the people they represent and govern. Moreover, our public institutions now work to an agenda beyond their main purpose.

'Our modern United Kingdom was born out of the respectful inclusion of so many individual voices. It is steeped in the innate values of families and communities, diverse in the truest sense but united in the want and need to call this island home.

  Deadpool's Ryan Reynolds explains Green Lantern jokes in Free Guy "There's plenty there to laugh at".

'The people of the United Kingdom are tired of being told that we represent the very thing we have, in history, stood together against.

'We are all privileged to be the custodians of our shared heritage. We can reclaim a respectful nation where all are included and none are ashamed to have somewhere to call home.'

He added: 'I have been so encouraged by the support I have received by those wishing to add their voices to this reclamation of our values.

'Our country is now in desperate need of a new political movement which promises to make our future a shared endeavour, not a divisive one. This is now my endeavour.'

Fox, who has been a fierce critic of the BBC, sparked controversy when he said suggestions of 'racism' over how the Duchess of Sussex was treated in some quarters was 'boring'.

He also hit out at black and working class actors for complaining about the industry once they have 'five million quid in the bank'.

A Westminster source said the new party is a version of UKIP for the culture wars and believes it could attract hundreds of thousands of unhappy Conservative voters.

Sources close to Fox said the party does not see itself as strictly left or right wing but will be a broad church.

Reclaim so far has three objectives, which include protecting free speech, reforming publicly funded institutions, and preserving and celebrating Britain's cultural history.

Planning has been underway for the last two months and backers include former Tory donor Jeremy Hosking.

Staff are already being recruited for the party after Fox was launched into the political arena after his performance on Question Time in January.
