Kingsman: The Secret Service is a very British spy caper and a whole lot of fun

Murder, mayhem and madness are unleashed in this absurdly enjoyable spy caper that David Niven or perhaps Patrick Macnee might have made in the 1960s.

Only this time we have exploding heads, potty-mouthed language and – towards the end – a certain X-rated gag about the queen of Sweden’s bottom that would have made everyone at Ealing choke on their Earl Grey.

With Niven unavailable, it’s down to Colin Firth to save the world as Harry Hart, a crack member of the ultra-secret Kingsman espionage ring, headed by Michael Caine.

Customer ordered to pay £500 restaurant bill – TWO YEARS after doing a runner

A customer has been ordered to pay more than £500 for his slap-up meal - two years after he did a runner.

William Potter and three pals dined out on scallops, beef fillet, lamb shanks and cod.

Then they ordered desserts and helped to wash the whole lot down with two bottles of Dom Perignon champagne - at £148.40 a bottle.

An Italian pinot grigio at £23.50 and two bottles of £35 rioja were also selected from the wine list to help the evening go with a swing.

CascadeGuilty: Billy Potter admitted not paying the bill at magistrate"s court

EXCLUSIVE

Deflated balls or not ... the New England Patriots kicked Indy"s ass this weekend -- and the amount of air in the pigskin had NOTHING to do with it ... so says ex-NFL QB Rodney Peete

Peete -- who played in the NFL for 16 years -- says the whole "Deflate-Gate" scandal is being blown way out of proportion ... because despite the pressure in the footballs, "you still gotta play the game."

Rodney also says slightly deflated balls don"t give a QB an advantage -- "You still gotta make the throws." 

The NFL is not commenting on the investigation into the Pats -- but multiple reports say the league found 11 of the 12 balls were under-inflated by 2 pounds-per-square inch.

Britain's millions of unpaid carers at breaking point and overwhelmed by pressure

Millions of carers across the nation are at breaking point – overwhelmed by loneliness, exhaustion, depression and massive financial strain.

A huge 6.5 million Brits care for a loved one who is older, seriously ill or disabled, saving the economy an estimated £119billion a year in bills to professionals.

But shock research reveals 80% feel completely alone, while 50% feel depressed, with no official help in sight.

One husband who takes care of his ill wife hit out at “broken promises” from the country’s leaders, as charity Carers UK – behind the study – called for better support from the Government.

Tories 'betray' public as cuts and tax hikes leave families more than £1,000 a year worse off

Households have been left £1,127 a year worse off on average since the Coalition took powerin 2010 due to Tory benefit cuts and tax rises, experts warn today.

The worst affected were low-income families with ­children, who were hit by cuts to means-tested ­benefits and tax credits.

But the Institute for Fiscal Studies report found the childless middle-classes “gained significantly”.

Shadow Treasury Minister Cathy Jamieson accused David Cameronof a “clear betrayal” of his promise to be family friendly.
