British terrorist suspect escapes in Pakistan - It's good at home, say Spice Girls - No festive cheer in poll for Brown - Brown welcomes end of Pakistan emergency rule - "All options open" for Northern Rock - EU 'moves on' from treaty, PM claims.



British terrorist suspect escapes in Pakistan
A British man suspected of plotting to blow up US-bound trans-Atlantic airliners has escaped from police custody in Pakistan, officials said early Sunday.
"Rashid Rauf escaped from police custody and we are making every possible effort to re-arrest him," interior ministry spokesman Brigadier Javed Cheema told AFP.
Rauf was arrested in central Pakistan in August 2006 and had been behind bars since then.

It's good at home, say Spice Girls
The Spice Girls kicked off the UK leg of their comeback tour and told fans: "It's so good to be home." The band opened the first of 17 nights at London's O2 arena.
"Yay, we're home!" cried Baby Spice Emma Bunton. "It's so good to be home. We're back together again!" Geri Halliwell said: "What a crowd - we love you London!"
It was the first time in nine years that all five had performed in this country.

No festive cheer in poll for Brown
Gordon Brown will go into the Christmas break with Labour falling further behind the Tories, according to an opinion poll.
The YouGov poll for the Sunday Times puts the Conservatives on 45%, up four points on last month and 13 points ahead of Labour who are down three on 32%.
The Liberal Democrats are up one on 14%.

Brown welcomes end of Pakistan emergency rule
Prime Minister Gordon Brown hailed the lifting of Pakistan's state of emergency as a "significant step" Saturday.
After a telephone call with President Pervez Musharraf, Brown also called for a "level playing field" in next month's parliamentary elections.
"This is another significant step towards the return of full constitutional order," Brown said in a statement.

"All options open" for Northern Rock
The government was last night reportedly drawing up a rescue plan to nationalise Northern Rock after hopes of finding a private buyer appeared to have stalled.
The prime minister and chancellor have been adamant a private buy-out is the best option for the troubled lender. However, the turmoil in the global financial markets has inhibited the bank's sale, with preferred bidder Virgin Group unable to finalise a deal.

EU 'moves on' from treaty, PM claims
Gordon Brown has moved to reassure critics of the reform treaty process that there would be no more tinkering with EU institutions for the "foreseeable future".
The prime minister said the statement agreed at a one-day summit in Brussels was an "important signal" of where the EU's priorities now lay.
Brown is eager to show sceptics in the UK that there is little point campaigning for a referendum and that the EU was no longer navel gazing but plans to deal with substantive issues.
