'Rebel' Saudi women shun obligatory abaya robe

'Rebel' Saudi women shun obligatory abaya robe Her high heels clacking on marble tiles, a defiant Saudi woman turned heads and drew gasps as she strutted through a Riyadh mall -- without a body-shrouding abaya. The billowy over-garment, usually all-black, is customary public wear for women in the ultra-conservative Islamic kingdom, where it is widely seen as a symbol of piety. Last year, de facto ruler Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman hinted during an interview with CBS that the dress code may be relaxed, saying the robe was not mandatory in Islam.

Notorious double killer Christopher Halliwell has now been linked to four other unsolved murders.

A witness has claimed that he saw Halliwell, who is currently serving life in prison for  two murders, drive a white van similar to the one spotted at the scene of the unsolved killing of Julie Finley.

Ms Finley, 23, was found strangled with her naked body dumped in a field in Rainford, Lancashire on August 5, 1994.

The witness now claims that taxi driver Halliwell lived just four miles from the field.

He is urging police to reinvestigate Halliwell, 55, who is being portrayed in ITV drama A Confession.

After being jailed for the first murder, Halliwell was later convicted of the killing of Becky Godden-Edwards, who had been missing since 2007.

Halliwell was given life imprisonment with a whole life order, meaning he will not be eligible for parole.

DS Steve Fulcher, who arrested ­Halliwell in 2011, believes he committed other murders.

He said: 'There's no question, from all the information I gathered when I was running this inquiry in 2011, he committed other murders.'

A woman calling  herself Tina told police soon after Ms Finley's killing that she was going to see a taxi driver.

Another witness also claimed that a woman matching Ms Finley's description had been seen arguing with a man, who was trying to force her into a van.

It appears as if Ms Finley's murder, and those of the other three women, match a pattern to the killings Halliwell was convicted for.

Former murder detective Peter Kirkham told the Mirror: 'When you have got the modus operandi and the suggestion he was living in the area at the time, it makes it something the police should firm up.

Boris Johnson’s unlawful conduct has been called to account

  Boris Johnson’s unlawful conduct has been called to account The ruling by the UK Supreme Court is a devastating indictment of the abuse of power by a prime minister — and of the holder of that office, Boris Johnson. The ruling by the UK Supreme Court is a devastating indictment of the abuse of power by a prime minister — and of the holder of that office, Boris Johnson. The 11 judges unanimously concluded that Mr Johnson’s five-week suspension of parliament was an unlawful attempt to silence MPs, at the very moment the UK, through Brexit, faces the biggest shake-up in its constitutional status for decades. Mr Johnson’s claim that the suspension was a routine break before a new legislative session stands exposed.

'It's worth Merseyside police having a good look at, and if those things are correct, setting up a cold case investigation.'

In all of the unsolved cases, the women had been alone and were probably enticed into a car in a city area before being dumped in a more rural location.

Carol Clark, 32, was picked up from the Bristol red light district in March 1993 before being dumped in a canal at ­Sharpness, Gloucestershire.

It is believed she she had either suffered a heavy blow to the neck or been strangled.

Halliwell lived 40 miles away at the time and had a good knowledge of the canals, as he was a narrowboat enthusiast.

The victim's brother-in-law Terry Townsend said her family had noticed similarities in A Confession between the murders the killer was convicted of.

Jackie Waines, 35, was a mother abducted in Bristol and murdered in 1985.

Yvonne Fitt, also a mother, was found in a shallow grave outside Otley, West Yorkshire in 1992 and, like Ms Waines and Ms Clark, was snatched from red light districts.

How Money And Messaging Could Win Johnson His ‘No Surrender’ Election .
At a meeting of the “political” cabinet this evening (held in No.10, but no civil servants allowed), Tory co-chairman Ben Elliot announced that this month had been the party’s most successful September fundraising month. Ever.  That’s a testimony to Boris Johnson’s sheer pulling power for donors who really like his determination to deliver Brexit. Throughout his political career, Johnson has had a talent for attracting cash from businessmen and others. Unlike Theresa May, he shakes their hands, tells jokes and generally makes them feel better about themselves.
