LET’S hear it then for the Vardanyan Brothers. Most daring sword-balancing act in all of Armenia. So scary, indeed, that Simon Cowell admitted: “I was almost going to say you can’t do this, ’cos in all my years this is the most dangerous act I’ve ever seen on a show.” Almost. Then he remembered he let Ant drive people to the auditions one year. The elephant in the room on the opening night of Britain’s Got Talent, which was indistinguishable from every other year, apart from Amanda Holden, who’s showing the first distressing signs of developing early-onset bingo wings.

It’s not fair to say the Senate is doing nothing under Mitch McConnell other than confirming judges.The Republican Senate Majority Leader has devoted much of his time lately to fashioning talking points to attack the Democrats’ top piece of legislation in the House, a wide-ranging bill dealing with reforms to campaign finance, ethics and voting rights.McConnell gave seven floor speeches in the Senate in the weeks leading up to the vote in the House on Thursday.
