Default Good news Britain

Amongst the 'heavier' items of the Telegraph web pages I've found this section.

That's interesting - is the "Good News" section of the Telegraph related in any way to the Good News newspaper I was hearing about recently? (there was a newspiece on telly the other day about this new newspaper that focuses on good news, but I wasn't paying much attention at the time so don't remember the detail).

I have no idea Dunroving. I just happened to chance upon the section whilst browsing through the telegraph online. Snippets of good news are always welcome, whether they can balance out the no so good news over time remains to be seen.

Not entirely British, a little help from our European friends, but is was great to see the Ryder cup win. Add this to the great sporting achievements this summer, the Olympics and Paralympics and the excellent medal tally, Murray winning the US open etc.

Hard to guess the sports personality of the year this year.

Some great sporting achievements.


( pity about the football )

Looks great that, 27,000 jobs created as well, pity it's down south, we need more initiatives up North.

Nice to see the possible development being in Kent and the location lends itself so beautifully to tapping into Continental rail traffic coming into Ebbsfleet and maybe even the future airport if it happens at Boris Island.

I see the land is owned by the French cement company Lafarge.

The North already has the #1 UK theme park at Alton Towers (Staffs admittedly) and a few others but tapping into additional numbers coming into the London area (new money source) would seem to be more sensible even though I do have a dislike for the fact it hogs so much of the action every which way.

Big article on it in the DM, big article in the Independent, little snippet in the DT, nothing in the Guardian, it seems.
