Do you remember the United Kingdom ? One of these front pages isn't like the others. The one which is different is from Scotland while the other three are from England.
The press in the other EU nations is far more like the Scottish press, recognising Theresa May's appalling speech for the desperation which it was.

Growing up in New Zealand in the 1970s I read a lot about the tests at Mururoa. Nuclear weapons have not gone away. They scared me then and they scare me no less now.

“There’ll be no early help,” ... “Families won’t get any attention now until they’re in crisis.”

Somerset in the UK faces "a hacking down of help for vulnerable families and children with special educational needs, youth services, road gritting, flood prevention and much more."

The mess is the result of years of poor administration by the Conservative local government which has left the county bankrupt. I used to live in Somerset. My family still does.

Sadly, people in Somerset voted overwhelmingly not only for the Conservative administration which has already bankrupted the county but also for Brexit, which will make the effects much much worse.

An old border post between the Netherlands and Germany. It's been transformed into children's play equipment. Rather than armed guards facing each other across the border and sometimes bloody conflict, children can now climb up on one side of the border and climb back down on the other.

A better world requires that we break down walls, not build them. That we work towards understanding other people not separate ourselves from them.

It really shouldn't be a surprise to any of us that the health benefits of cycling only come when you ride a bike on which you have to push the pedals hard to get anywhere quickly...

Pushing e-bikes does not lead to health benefits

You might think that no sane person would vote for six months of civil unrest, but Britain's police chiefs now expect precisely that as a result of brexit. Millions of British citizens actually did vote for this.

If you live in the UK and you're not yet stockpiling non-perishable food and medicine, make a start. But don't tell anyone about your stash because it is expected that those who stockpile will find that others who did not will want to steal their stash.

If you voted for brexit, do you feel clever now ? Got what you wanted ?
