Default The UK news thread.

A few little snippets from UK skynews.

This is the place to post 'little stories'

Zara Philips has sold pictures of her new baby for 150k.

Sales of cheddar are down, I must say it is one of my favourite cheeses.

Useful info for living in Spain ?

I see it's been moved to Siesta Time.

I expect it won't be long before it's in Plaza de Toros.

As UK Sky news did an article on a landslip, and put Bournemouth in Hampshire, I would take any geographical location they give with a big pinch of salt.

Well to be fair to them it was historically in Hampshire until the 1970´s when it became part of Dorset.

Or the person who compiled the item is stuck in the past or maybe refuses to accept change.

I had a quick flying visit to the UK over the weekend. I'm glad to say that despite all the news stories of floods and storms, it was actually very pleasant. I was lucky enough to catch two sunny days, and with the daffodils out, and trees starting to blossom, it felt very Spring-like.

This seems to be the biggest ongoing UK media story at present.

Despite protestations and accusations from H.H. it seems the D.M.has proved it's point and she's had to back down and apologize.

Is that " REAL " Cheddar or the industrially produced cheese that calls itself cheddar that could come from almost anywhere in the world these days ?
