Conservatives' pledge to protect NHS 'entirely disingenuous'
Sunday 20 March 2016 13.34 GMT
The Conservatives’ key pre-election pledge to protect the NHS with £8bn extra spending a year was entirely disingenuous as the government had been told the service required at least double that amount to keep going, according to a book by a former minister.
Downing Street was informed by an official report that to stay afloat the NHS would need £16bn a year extra in government spending above inflation by 2020, but dismissed this as “mad” and ordered the figure to be halved, according to David Laws.

Watch incredible kids form human arrow to help police find suspected burglars
20:07, 1 Apr 2016
This is the moment an incredible group of youngsters formed a human arrow to help police find two suspected burglars in Capel .
Around 30 children and adults were taking part in an Easter egg hunt on Good Friday (March 25) when they became aware of the National Police Air Service (NPAS) helicopter circling overhead.
The helicopter, from the Redhill base, had been called by Surrey Police following a report of intruders at a disused building off Horsham Road in the village.
The quick-thinking group laid in the middle of a ploughed field, forming an arrow to point the helicopter in the right direction of the suspects.

The Green Party is aiming to build on 2015's "surge" in votes and membership to boost its representation on English councils in the local elections.
Launching her party's campaign in Bristol, Natalie Bennett said councils "desperately need a new green broom".
The party is standing more than 1,500 candidates on 5 May.
It received a record vote share of 3.8% in the 2015 general election. However, its increase in support did not result in another parliamentary seat.
Ms Bennett said Green membership had more than trebled. "We got more than 1.1m votes in the general election - we are aiming to turn that green surge into green seats."

Greenpeace activists have scaled Nelson's Column, breached security at the Houses of Parliament and put face masks on 17 London statues in protest at "dangerous" levels of air pollution.
Two protesters climbed a fence and evaded security to put a mask on the face of the Oliver Cromwell statue within the grounds of Parliament.
The environmental group also targeted statues of Winston Churchill, and Queen Victoria outside Buckingham Palace.
Eight people have been arrested.

Celebrations mark Queen's 90th birthday
Celebrations are taking place around the country on the day the Queen turns 90.
Crowds lined the streets in Windsor as the monarch took part in a walkabout, and royal gun salutes have been fired from each of the UK's capital cities.
The Prince of Wales recorded a special radio broadcast for the day, in which he read an edited passage from William Shakespeare's Henry VIII.
On Twitter, the Queen thanked senders of "#HappyBirthdayYourMajesty" tweets.
In another tweet, the Queen said: "I send my best wishes to those who are celebrating their 90th birthday... on this shared occasion, I send my warm congratulations to you."

He told Fox News the migration crisis had been a "horrible thing for Europe" and blamed the EU for driving it.The Republican said he was not making a "recommendation" but his "feeling" was that the UK should vote to sever ties with the EU in its 23 June referendum.
Emperor Trump has spoken (not sure if this belongs here, or in the US general election thread).

London set for 'clean energy revolution' as Sadiq Khan wins mayoral election
6 May 2016
Labour's London Mayoral candidate Sadiq Khan - the contender proposing to become the "greenest Mayor ever" - is poised to be swept into City Hall after defeating the Conservative Party's Zac Goldsmith by a clear majority.
Boris Johnson’s successor Khan has previously outlined his ambition to ignite a “clean energy revolution” in the capital, with the ultimate aim of running London on 100% green energy by 2050.
This bold statement will now be tested during Khan's tenure along with his list of green manifesto pledges including banning fracking in London, planting two millions trees, providing more electric buses, and expanding the Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) - as well as attempts to divest the London Pension Fund Authority of its remaining investments in fossil fuel industries.

UK's attractiveness for renewables investment plummets to all-time low
Tuesday 10 May 2016 06.01 BST
The attractions of Britain for investors in renewable energy projects are at an all-time low, an authoritative new report has found.
The UK routinely topped the annual league table for attractiveness to clean energy companies, run by consultancy Ernst & Young (EY), in the mid-2000s. For the first time, however, it has slid to 13th in the global rankings.
Investors in renewable energy are being put off the UK by political posturing hostile to renewables and green efforts, and the slashing of government support for clean power supplies, in favour of potentially more expensive alternatives such as shale gas and nuclear power.
Renewable energy investment worth tens of billions a year, and thousands of jobs, is likely to be lost by the UK as a result, the report found.
