LEICESTER, England — A person with knowledge of the situation says the Thai owner of English Premier League club Leicester was on a helicopter that crashed and burst into flames shortly after taking off from the soccer field at the team’s King Power stadium in central England.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Sunday because they were not authorized to release details of the passengers.

And included in that partisan divide, a new HuffPost/YouGov survey finds, is a sharp disagreement between Republican and Democratic women over whether they feel a sense of kinship along gender lines at all. Half of female Democrats say they share a lot of common interests and concerns with other women. Just 27 percent of female Republicans say the same. (Fewer than a quarter of men in either party say they … [Read more...] about Democratic Women Feel United By Gender. Most Republican Women Don’t.
THE die-hard Leicester FC fan whose touching tribute to the late club owner was stolen today hit out at the heartless thief. Paul Simmons put his own club shirt, scarf and emotional note on the steps of the London Thai embassy after Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was killed in a helicopter crash on Saturday. But less than three hours after he laid the tribute, CCTV captured a despicable man stuffing the items into his backpack and strolling off. Mr Simmons, who has followed the Foxes since he was six years old, told the Sun Online: "I'm shocked somebody could do that." Demanding answers, the devastated Londoner said: "I would like to know why he did it." The stunned facilities manager also said he hoped police would press charges if they were able to identify the thief. He said: "I'm very sad that my tribute has been taken, I couldn’t get to the ground on Monday so thought this would be the closest place to pay my respect to Vichai and all those that sadly lost their lives. "It … [Read more...] about Die-hard Leicester FC fan slams sick thief who stole his shirt tribute to helicopter crash owner
