Denise Headley, 38, a single mother, was welcomed by Tory Party chairman Eric Pickles and said she was disillusioned with Labours failure to speak up for non-white people. She had been deselected by Labour, apparently in a row over the number of black council candidates put forward by the party.Welcome: Eric Pickles and Denise Headley Defector boosts Toryethnicdrive MPjoinsfightto scrapDNArecords PHACKNEY MP Diane Abbott is to offer advice to constituents on how to get their DNA profiles wiped from the national database after shadow immigration minister Damian Green won the battle to have his removed. Ms Abbott says black men are more likely to have their genetic fingerprint stored, leaving them stigmatised even when innocent of any crime. Scotland Yard deleted Mr Greens profile after no charges were brought against him in the Whitehall leaks inquiry. PETER MANDELSON had an operation today on a suspected enlarged prostate gland. The Business Secretary, 55, who stood in for Prime Minister Gordon Brown last week, was said to be in good form after the routine surgery. Lord Mandelson, who is also the First Secretary of State, underwent the procedure at St Marys Hospital in Paddington, west London, and will remain there overnight. A spokesman for the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills said the minister was awaiting confirmation from the surgeon but that all the expectations were that he had been suffering from an enlarged prostate. Lord Mandelson had emergency hospital treatment last October for kidney stones but todays admission was planned in advance. His condition was believed to be benign prostatic hyperplasia -- one of the most common conditions affecting men over 40.Surgery: Mandelson Id probably be a boring Sloaney Pony, dating Mr Hedge Fund -- victORiA AitkEN, 28, left, daUghter of ex-tory minister jonathan, says her life has been saved by her new career as a hip hop rapper Whats the difference between God and Simon Cowell?

KARZAI DECLARES VICTORY IN AFGHAN POLL: PAGE 4 H PTHE head of the Army said today that he was unrepentant about his criticism of the Government -- and issued a fresh warning to Gordon Brown to find more equipment for troops in Afghanistan. General Sir Richard Dannatt vowed to keep up pressure on the Prime Minister until he steps down from his post next Friday. His remarks were also a rebuff to Labour critics amid claims the party had embarked on a smear campaign against him, with Labour peer Lord Foulkes submitting parliamentary questions on the cost of his official residence, chauffeur- driven cars, and use of helicopters. At a Help For Heroes charity event, Gen Dannatt said he was absolutely unrepentant about his calls for better equipment and added: We have got some very good equipment but with an increase in the forces overseas, we have got to get more. index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html
