Speaking on BBC Radio 4, Mr Clarke insisted that only a “handful” of right-wing eurosceptics believe a ‘no deal’ Brexit is desirable. He said: “Indeed, listen to some of them. They think its better than being in the biggest free trade area in the world.“And they talk as though the introduction of tariffs, customs barriers, different regulations in our markets from other people’s market are all going to give a bright blue future and the world outside will suddenly respond by throwing all their market open to us." But the BBC’s John Humphrys hit back at Mr Clarke’s claim and said: “That’s a bit over the top.“The reality is, there are 28 member of the European Union. “There’s 193 countries in the world so if you subtract the 28 from 193, you’re left with 165 countries who seem to manage perfectly well without being in the European Union.” … [Read more...] about ‘That’s a bit over the top!’ Arch-Remoaner Ken Clarke slapped down by BBC host over Brexit

A report from environmental charity WWF said 80 per cent of rivers failed to meet good ecological standards, with half affected by sewage pollution.There are almost 18,000 licensed emergency sewer overflows in England and Wales, which are allowed to discharge raw sewage directly into the environment during extreme rainfall, mostly into rivers.But the investigation by WWF suggests they are discharging more frequently, with data from one water company suggesting that 14 per cent of overflows were spilling sewage into rivers more than once a week, and half more once than a month.England's nine water and sewerage companies reported 1,902 pollution incidents last year, the first rise since 2012, figures show.

Diabetes sufferers have to be careful what they consume in their diet in order to manage symptoms such as excessive thirst and hunger, fatigue and blurry vision.This is because certain foods can cause blood sugar levels to spike - dangerous for diabetics who’s bodies struggle to deal with sugar in the bloodstream properly.While patients can enjoy sugary foods in moderation and sparingly, there is a sweet-tasting vegetable that could help steady blood sugar levels.Despite its name, sweet potatoes are considered to be perfectly safe - and even beneficial - for diabetics to consume. Low GI foods - such as sweet potato - have less of an immediate effect on blood glucose levels, meaning they are suitable for type 2 diabetes sufferers.

A trio of aging sleuths - homeopath Leonhard Blume, 73, scientist Günter Eckardt, 67, and georadar specialist Peter Lohr, 71 - are convinced the missing Amber Room of the Russian Tsars lies in the Prince's Cave in the Hartenstein hills near Dresden. Third Reich scientists used the cave complex during the war - but all records of just what went on there have mysteriously vanished from local archives.But Lohr used radar imaging to detect underground booby traps and what appear to be bunkers under the soil. He scanned the hill in September after Lohr claimed a "reliable source" told him of the missing treasure's whereabouts in 2001. "The hideout is underground is above the railway line, where in April 1945 a train from Königsberg was stopped," he said. Königsberg, now Kaliningrad belonging to Russia, was formerly the capital of East Prussia where the Amber Room was once stored.

While most scientists say that global warming is a byproduct of human activity, particularly in the industrial age, new research has found trees, which are meant to be saving us from doom, are actually contributing to our downfall.Trees are known to absorb CO2 and produce oxygen.However, research from Nasa’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, has found little carbon dioxide is being absorbed by Earth’s biggest tropical forests which is causing them to die off.As the trees in the forests die, they rot and release large amounts of CO2 contributing to global warming.But as more trees die, more CO2 is produced, leading to the death of more trees in what is a slippery downward spiral for the planet.One of the main contributing factors to this has been an increase in the strength of El Nino – warm ocean temperatures – over the last few decades.Lead author of the study, Junjie Liu, said the biggest damage is being done in the forests of South … [Read more...] about NASA CLAIM: Dying forests are CONTRIBUTING to global warming by emitting CO2

UBISOFT South Park: The Fractured But Whole review: the funniest RPG of the generation? South Park: The Fractured But Whole is the funniest game we’ve played all year.It’s got that trademark South Park humour, brought to life so adeptly by veteran writers and actors Trey Parker and Matt Stone, combined with some enjoyable and addictive gameplay elements, too.The game - as you’d expect - doesn’t exactly shy away from controversy. From the game’s opening gambit of you setting your character’s skin colour to determine difficulty (the darker the skin tone, the harder the game), the series’ off-beat humour just gets more and more on-the-knuckle.For the most part, the humour hits home: it’s sharp satire mixed with a self-awareness that later episodes in the TV show seemed to lack.The fact the game is able to mock … [Read more...] about South Park: The Fractured But Whole review: the funniest RPG of the generation?
