The annual pilgrimage to Blackpool caused an outbreak of full-on friskiness among the Strictly stars, with judge Motsi Mabuse getting so giddy-headed with excitement she missed her entrance altogether at the start of the show, leaving the other judges posing like the cast of Friends with Chandler gone AWOL. Shirley Ballas had her own rush of blood to the head, making up for her ballroom Grinch act of the previous two weeks, by awarding points like sweeties and jumping out of her seat to whoop and cheer the contestants like a frenzied fan at an Andre Rieu concert. Screeching in delight at Chris Ramsey’s so-so Salsa, Shirley told us (worryingly) that she had "enjoyed it too much!"

Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that all migrants will pay for the National Health Service (NHS) on ‘day one’, as the nation’s socialised medicine system faces the longest wait times in fifteen years, and NHS staff are being gagged on social media ahead of the general election. Boris Johnson said this week that under his Brexit plan, the government would mandate that all migrants pay an NHS surcharge of £625 before migrating to the United Kingdom, whether they use the service or not.At present, migrants from European Union nations are exempt from paying any healthcare surcharge, and migrants from outside the EU are currently paying £400 per year. The new plan proposed by Johnson would remove this distinction, and require all migrants to pay. “If people return a majority Conservative government we will ensure that people who come to our great country from anywhere in the world will contribute on day one to our NHS”, Johnson told … [Read more...] about Johnson: All Migrants Must Pay for NHS on ‘Day One’ as Wait Times for Patients Soar
In the 1980s, the British government tried to claim that the beaches of Brighton, Blackpool, Skegness and many other resorts weren’t used for bathing, to avoid dealing with the sewage, condoms and tampons that polluted them. Of the 27 beaches it agreed were used for swimming, nine were too dirty to reach the minimum bathing standard. Today, after legal action from the EU and directives on bathing water and urban waste water, 99% of the UK’s 632 designated beaches have been deemed safe for swimming. From Llandudno to Cromer, beaches that failed tests for faecal bacteria in 1988 are now rated as excellent, even though today’s standards are stricter than before. The improvement did not take place overnight. Even in 1995, more than half of England’s 370 beaches were blighted by unacceptable levels of pollution. It took successful court cases against the UK, such as one in 1993 over Blackpool’s seafront, to drive the clean-up. It also took £30bn of … [Read more...] about What has the EU ever done for my … beach?
Twenty-five beaches in England may fail to meet tough new EU standards for bathing water quality that come into force on Friday. Water at the 417 bathing spots monitored by the Environment Agency (EA) in 2014 was cleaner than ever recorded, with 99.5% meeting standards for intestinal enterococci and E. coli, faecal bacteria that cause eye and ear infections and gastroenteritis. In 1988, a third of swimming spots failed the tests. But the data published by the EA on Friday show that authorities will have to redouble efforts to make all public swimming areas safe under the revised EU Bathing Water Directive, which comes into force this summer bathing season. Beaches including Blackpool Central and North, Clacton, Ilfracombe Wildersmouth, Hastings, Lyme Regis Church Cliff Beach, Morecambe South, Lancing and Walpole Bay at Margate are among those predicted to fall foul of the stricter rules this summer. The new European standards will cut acceptable levels of harmful bacteria in half. The … [Read more...] about 25 English beaches likely to fail new EU standards for swimming
The water company ordering a hosepipe ban on 7m households in the north-west of England has the second-worst record for leaking pipes of any supplier, industry data shows. The temporary use ban being imposed by United Utilities from 5 August has led to calls for water firms to do more to tackle leakage on their networks. United Utilities is second only to Thames Water for the amount of water lost en route to households, at 133 litres per property per day, well above the sector’s average of 121 litres. The amount of water wasted through leaking pipes is almost identical to regional average daily use, which stands at 132 litres per customer. The company is also the industry’s third-worst performer on the other main measurement, cubic metres of water leaked per kilometre per day. Tony Juniper, the executive director for advocacy and campaigns at WWF-UK, said: “In the short-term one would hope the water companies, all of them, would be putting more effort into leakage … [Read more...] about Hosepipe ban firm loses 133 litres of water in leaks per house a day
