Joe Maring 13 Nov 2017 12 Android tablets (and really, tablets in general) have gotten a lot less popular over the past couple of years. The last tablet that Google ever released was the Pixel C that came out back in 2015, and while it offered a great design and gorgeous display, the high price and soemtimes wonky performance made it hard to justify its $599 asking price (not to mention the extra $150 for its keyboard). Google never really did come off of that $599 listing, but for our readers over in the United Kingdom, you've finally got a deal that just might make the Pixel C still worth it in late 2017.Buy one Galaxy S10 or Note 10 and get one free at Verizon Right now on the Google Store in the U.K., you can buy the Pixel C for £299 (normally £479) and the keyboard accessory for £73 (rather than £119). Along with this, buyers in … [Read more...] about Deal: Pixel C tablet down to £299 in the United Kingdom
There will be no Scottish Olympic team at the 2016 Games in Rio. James Bond can keep his passport. Hogwarts will remain under the British Ministry of Magic's control. The Union Jack will fly unchanged. After two years of debating the promise and pitfalls that independence could bring, 3.6 million Scottish voters cast their ballots on Thursday—and 55 percent of them decided to stay in the United Kingdom.Although the 'No' campaign won in the end, British Prime Minister David Cameron's all-or-nothing strategy on Scottish independence failed. During referendum negotiations with Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond two years ago, Cameron pushed for a yes-or-no vote in the hopes of spooking voters into choosing the latter. But when a YouGov poll two weeks ago showed the 'Yes' campaign in the lead for the first time, he and other U.K. leaders suddenly reversed course and pledged far greater powers to Scottish voters if they remained in the union. They decided to do so. The prime … [Read more...] about The United States of Great Britain?

LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he was nervous about his narrowing lead in opinion polls ahead of Thursday’s election but pledged to deliver a “transformative” Brexit that will allow lower immigration. FILE PHOTO: Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson gestures during the launch of a general campaign poster at the Kent Showground in Detling, Kent, Britain, December 6, 2019. REUTERS/Peter Nicholls/Pool The Dec. 12 election will decide the fate of Brexit and the world’s fifth-largest economy with a stark choice between Johnson’s pro-market Conservatives and the socialist-led opposition Labour Party. “Brexit is the most radical and profound change to the management of this country,” Johnson told Sky, adding that he would lead the United Kingdom out of the European Union on Jan. 31 if he wins a majority in the 650-seat parliament. “Brexit is indispensable - you can’t move forward without … [Read more...] about Johnson pledges transformative Brexit as nerves are rattled by UK polls
Where is it? An imposing country house hotel in the tranquil Dee valley, on the fringes of Snowdonia national park. Two hours from London’s Euston station to Chester by train, followed by an hour in a car to Palé Hall. Meaning you can get there just in time for cocktails and a late supper on a Friday night. What’s the pull? Queen Victoria and Winston Churchill both stayed at this Victorian mansion and have suites named after them. Owners Alan and Angela Harper bought the house five years ago and refurbished it with impeccable style. Rooms with a view? Watching the sun rise from the Churchill suite’s full length windows, under a vaulted ceiling, is quite a way to start the weekend. Star attractions? Mount Snowdon, with its rack and pinion railway that climbs 4.7 miles to the summit, is a few miles away. For those feeling more active, there are many established walking routes. The hotel hosts coarse angling and fly-fishing on nearby Bala Lake. Where’s good to … [Read more...] about Grand touches and Dee valley views: Palé Hall hotel review
