JANET STREET-PORTER: Theresa and duplicitous Boris have tossed their green principles in

JANET STREET-PORTER: I'd like to see a 'three strikes and you're out' rule imposed on politicians. This week's offenders are Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Theresa May (inset). Both promised voters they would do everything they could to oppose the expansion of Heathrow airport. Boris even proposed a hair-brained alternative scheme to be built on a man-made island in the Thames estuary and was keen to be photographed (as usual) scouting the area in a boat. This week, when MP's voted for a third runway, a decision which will wreck the lives of hundreds of thousands of residents in the South East of the UK, Boris was nowhere to be found. He turned up on 'urgent business' in Afghanistan (left), clearly not bothered about the environmental impact of such an unnecessary trip, the prime purpose of which was to get him off the hook.

So, how do they do it? SADIE NICHOLAS reports on the stars who have banished the bingo wings . . .

William tells Israel 'hope and reconciliation is needed' as country's President Rivlin is accused of politicising royal visit by asking Prince to take 'message of peace' to Palestine

Mr Rivlin said: 'I would like you....to send President Abbas a message of peace.' But Conservative MP Ian Liddell-Grainger told MailOnline the Israeli president had put the Prince in a difficult position and should have raised matters privately. Mr Liddell-Grainger said: 'He should say, this is a political matter, it is not for him, it is up to the government.'

Amnesty International, which led the 'Justice For Noura' campaign, said Sudan must reform child marriage laws following the decision. She was the victim of a 'brutal attack' by her husband and acted in self defence, said Amnesty's regional deputy director Seif Magango.
