      1987 United Kingdom general election

      The 1987 United Kingdom general election was held on Thursday, 11 June 1987, to elect 650 members to the House of Commons of the United Kingdom. The election was the third consecutive general election victory for the Conservative Party, and second landslide under the leadership of Margaret Thatcher, who became the first Prime Minister since the Earl of Liverpool in 1820 to lead a party into three successive electoral victories. The Conservatives ran a campaign focusing on lower taxes, a strong economy and strong defence. They also emphasised that unemployment had fallen below the 3?million mark for the first time since 1981, and inflation was standing at 4%, its lowest level for some twenty years. The tabloid media also had strong support for the Conservative Party, particularly The Sun, which ran anti-Labour articles with headlines such as "Why I'm backing Kinnock, by Stalin". The Labour Party, led by Neil Kinnock, was slowly moving towards a more centrist policy platform. The main aim of the Labour Party

      Alliance Party of Northern Ireland

      The Alliance Party of Northern Ireland (APNI) is a liberal[3] and centrist[7] political party in Northern Ireland. It has long been Northern Ireland's fifth-largest party overall, with eight seats in the Northern Ireland Assembly, but placed third in first preference votes in the most recent election, winning one of the three Northern Ireland seats in the European Parliament. Founded in 1970 from the New Ulster Movement, the Alliance Party originally represented moderate and non-sectarian unionism. However, over time, particularly in the 1990s, it moved towards neutrality on the Union, and has come to represent wider liberal and non-sectarian concerns. It opposes the consociational power-sharing mandated by the Good Friday Agreement as deepening the sectarian divide, and, in the Northern Ireland Assembly, it is designated as neither unionist nor Irish nationalist, but 'Other'. In general election in May 2010 the Alliance Party won their first House of Commons seat in a UK-wide general election, in the Belfa

Habitat U. unicinctus, like other species of Urechis, lives and burrows in sand and mud. It gets the name "fat innkeeper worm" because the tunnels often contain other animals.

      The Official Monster Raving Loony Party is a political party[2] established in the United Kingdom in 1983 by the musician David Sutch, also known as "Screaming Lord Sutch, 3rd Earl of Harrow", or simply "Lord Sutch".[3] It is notable for its deliberately bizarre policies and it effectively exists to satirise British politics, and to offer itself as an alternative for protest voters, especially in constituencies where the party holding a safe seat is unlikely to lose it. History Sutch era Starting in 1963, David Sutch, head of the rock group Screaming Lord Sutch and the Savages, stood in British parliamentary elections under a range of party names, initially as the National Teenage Party candidate. At that time the minimum voting age was 21. The party's name was intended to highlight what Sutch and others viewed as hypocrisy, since teenagers were unable to vote because of their supposed immaturity while the adults running the country were involved in scandals such as the Profumo affair.

      Uxbridge and South Ruislip is a constituency of the UK Parliament[n 1] in Greater London created in 2010. The seat has been held by the Conservative Party since its creation, with John Randall as MP from 2010 to 2015 and Boris Johnson as MP from 2015 onwards. Boris Johnson became Prime Minister of the UK on 24 July 2019.[2] His 2017 majority in Uxbridge and South Ruislip of 5,034 votes was the smallest of any sitting prime minister since 1924.[3] The main challenger to the seat is the Labour Party, whose 2019 candidate is Ali Milani. In April 2019, think-tank Onward classified the seat as "vulnerable" for the Conservatives,[4] whilst YouGov classified the seat on 27 November 2019 as "likely Conservative".[5] An article in The Independent on the same date inferred a 22.2% chance of Milani winning the seat from odds by bookmaker Paddy Power.[6] An estimate by the House of Commons Library puts the Leave vote by the constituency in the 2016 referendum at 57.2%, but The Observer reported in August 2018 that opin

      1992 United Kingdom general election

      Seats won in the election (outer ring) against number of votes (inner ring) The 1992 United Kingdom general election was held on Thursday 9 April 1992, to elect 651 members to the House of Commons of the United Kingdom. The election resulted in the fourth consecutive victory for the Conservative Party since 1979 and the last time that the Conservatives would win a majority at a general election until 2015. This election result took many by surprise, as opinion polling leading up to the election day had shown the Labour Party, under leader Neil Kinnock, consistently, if narrowly, ahead. John Major had won the leadership election in November 1990 following the resignation of Margaret Thatcher. During his term leading up to the 1992 election he oversaw the British involvement in the Gulf War, introduced legislation to replace the unpopular Community Charge with Council Tax, and signed the Maastricht Treaty. The economy was facing a recession around the time of Major's appointment, along with most of the other

      Sinn Féin

      Sinn Féin ( shin FAYN,[4] Irish:?; English: "[We] Ourselves", SF)[5] is a left-wing[2] Irish republican political party active in both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. The original Sinn Féin organisation was founded in 1905 by Arthur Griffith. It took its current form in 1970 after a split within the party (with the other side becoming the Workers' Party of Ireland) and has historically been associated with the Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA).[6] Mary Lou McDonald has been party president since February 2018. Sinn Féin is one of the two largest parties in the Northern Ireland Assembly, currently holding the same number of seats there as the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP). Sinn Féin is the largest nationalist party in that assembly, and it held four ministerial posts in the most recent power-sharing Northern Ireland Executive. In the UK House of Commons, Sinn Féin holds seven of Northern Ireland's 18 seats—the second-largest bloc after the DUP. There it follows a policy of abstentionism

Born in Edinburgh, Blair's father was a barrister and academic. After attending the private Fettes College, Blair studied law at St John's College, Oxford. Graduating in 1975, he subsequently practised as a barrister. Blair became involved in Labour politics and, in 1983, he was elected member of Parliament for Sedgefield. Associated with Labour's "soft left", he became a proponent of the party's movement to the centre of British politics (it had been out of government since 1979). He was appointed to the party's frontbench in 1988 and became Shadow Home Secretary in 1992. Blair became leader of the Opposition on his election as Labour Party leader in 1994, following the sudden death of his predecessor, John Smith.

      Henry Lee Lucas

      Henry Lee Lucas (August 23, 1936?– March 12, 2001) was an American serial killer whose crimes spanned from 1960 to 1983. He was convicted of murdering eleven people and condemned to death for the murder of Debra Jackson, although his sentence would be commuted to life in prison in 1998. Lucas rose to infamy after confessing to more than 100 murders to the Texas Rangers and other law enforcement officials while in prison. An investigation by the Dallas Times-Herald newspaper later discredited many of Lucas's murder confessions and resulted in a follow-up investigation by the Attorney General of Texas. The investigation concluded that Lucas was a fabulist who had falsely confessed. Lucas himself recanted the confessions as a hoax. Lucas's case resulted in a re-evaluation in police techniques and greater awareness of false confessions. Investigators did not consider that the petty privileges – fancy steak dinners, milkshakes, TV privileges – granted by the "confession" interviews would prompt further confessio

      Black Hebrew Israelites

      Black Hebrew Israelites (also called Black Hebrews, African Hebrew Israelites, and Hebrew Israelites) are groups of Black Americans who believe that they are the descendants of the ancient Israelites. To varying degrees, Black Hebrews adhere to the religious beliefs and practices of both Christianity and Judaism. Black Hebrew Israelites are not associated with the mainstream Jewish community, and do not meet the standards which are used to identify people as Jewish by the Jewish community. The only exception to this norm is any small number of individuals who have formally converted to Judaism. Many choose to identify as Hebrew Israelites or Black Hebrews rather than Jews in order to indicate their claimed historic connections.[1][2][3][4] At the end of the 19th century, Frank Cherry and William Saunders Crowdy both claimed that African Americans are descendants of the Hebrews in the Bible; Cherry established the Church of the Living God, the Pillar Ground of Truth for All Nations in 1886 and Crowdy founded

Appearing in 1604, it is the most recent supernova in our galaxy to have been unquestionably observed by the naked eye,[3] occurring no farther than 6 kiloparsecs (20,000 light-years) from Earth. Observation Visible to the naked eye, Kepler's Star was brighter at its peak than any other star in the night sky, with an apparent magnitude of ?2.5. It was visible during the day for over three weeks.

      Periodic table

      The periodic table, also known as the periodic table of elements, is a tabular display of the chemical elements, which are arranged by atomic number, electron configuration, and recurring chemical properties. The structure of the table shows periodic trends. The seven rows of the table, called periods, generally have metals on the left and non-metals on the right. The columns, called groups, contain elements with similar chemical behaviours. Six groups have accepted names as well as assigned numbers: for example, group 17 elements are the halogens; and group 18 are the noble gases. Also displayed are four simple rectangular areas or blocks associated with the filling of different atomic orbitals. The elements from atomic numbers 1 (hydrogen) through 118 (oganesson) have been discovered or synthesized, completing seven full rows of the periodic table.[1][2] The first 94 elements all occur naturally, though some are found only in trace amounts and a few were discovered in nature only after having first been sy

      House of Commons of the United Kingdom

      The House of Commons, officially the Honourable the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled, is the lower house of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. Like the upper house, the House of Lords, it meets in the Palace of Westminster. Owing to shortage of space, its office accommodation extends into Portcullis House. All 650 constituencies are currently vacant due to the dissolution of Parliament in relation to the 2019 United Kingdom general election. The Commons is an elected body consisting of 650 members known as Members of Parliament (MPs). Members are elected to represent constituencies by the first-past-the-post system and hold their seats until Parliament is dissolved. The House of Commons of England started to evolve in the 13th and 14th centuries. It became the House of Commons of Great Britain after the political union with Scotland in 1707, and assumed the title of "House of Commons of Great Britain and Ireland" after the political union with I

The United States emerged from the thirteen British colonies established along the East Coast. Numerous disputes between Great Britain and the colonies led to the American Revolutionary War lasting between 1775 a

      Saint Lucy's Day

      Saint Lucy's Day, also called the Feast of Saint Lucy, is a Christian feast day celebrated on 13 December in Advent, commemorating Saint Lucy, a 3rd-century martyr under the Diocletianic Persecution,[1] who according to legend brought "food and aid to Christians hiding in the catacombs" using a candle-lit wreath to "light her way and leave her hands free to carry as much food as possible".[2][3] Her feast once coincided with the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year before calendar reforms, so her feast day has become a Christian festival of light.[4][5] Falling within the Advent season, Saint Lucy's Day is viewed as an event signaling the arrival of Christmastide, pointing to the arrival of the Light of Christ in the calendar, on Christmas Day.[1][6] Saint Lucy’s Day is celebrated most commonly in Scandinavia, with their long dark winters, where it is a major feast day, and in Italy, with each emphasising a different aspect of the story.[7] In Scandinavia, where Saint Lucy is called Santa Lucia in N

      Presidents Cup

      The Presidents Cup is a series of men's golf matches between a team representing the United States and an International Team representing the rest of the world minus Europe. Europe competes against the United States in a similar but considerably older event, the Ryder Cup. The Presidents Cup has been held biennially since 1994.[1] Initially it was held in even numbered years, with the Ryder Cup being held in odd numbered years. However, the cancellation of the 2001 Ryder Cup due to the September 11 attacks pushed both tournaments back a year, and the Presidents Cup is now held in odd numbered years. It is hosted alternately in the United States and in countries represented by the International Team. Format The scoring system of the event is match play. The format is drawn from the Ryder Cup and consists of 12 players per side. Each team has a non-playing captain, usually a highly respected golf figure, who is responsible for choosing the pairs in the doubles events, which consist of both alternate shot and

      Lord Buckethead

      Lord Buckethead is a British satirical political candidate. A candidate of that name has stood in four United Kingdom general elections against four different Conservative Party leaders and Prime Ministers on behalf of two frivolous political parties, the Gremloids and later the Official Monster Raving Loony Party. He ran against Margaret Thatcher for parliament in Finchley in 1987, against John Major in Huntingdon in 1992, against Theresa May in Maidenhead in 2017 where he polled 0.4% of the vote, and against Boris Johnson in Uxbridge and South Ruislip in 2019. He also announced his intention to stand in the 2019 European Parliament elections,[2] but did not do so. After a copyright dispute, the Lord Buckethead from 2017, Jonathan Harvey, ran for Johnson's seat in 2019 as the similarly-appearing independent candidate Count Binface,[3] while a third incarnation of Lord Buckethead ("an American from Beverly Hills", according to Harvey[3]) stood for the Official Monster Raving Loony Party.[3] Outside of polit

Nick Cannon returned as host. Sixteen celebrities compete anonymously in newly created full-bodied costumes including distinctive masks. Before each performance a video package teases clues to their identity with the celebrity narrating aspects of their biography in a disguised voice. After each performs in their own voice, the panel attempts to guess who is the masked singer. The contestants are later voted on to see who is safe and continues, or is up for a further round of singing in that episode, and possibly elimination.
