Sunday Reads & Causes

While we pride ourselves on our frank, fair and forthright articles on current events in the UK and around the globe, we admit that there are – on occasion – articles that are also worthy of being read, positions worthy of being understood, petitions to be signed and causes to be championed. Further, we cannot have all such on our website, so what we have noted we link in below. We wish to stress we may not agree with everything written, and in some cases, these may include opposing viewpoints that we believe are worth considering and discussing. As a newsite that champions British Values, among which are Freedoms of Speech, Debate, Conscience and Thought, we believe that such rights should be exercised even when we do not agree with everything others may.

We wish all our readers an enjoyable December weekend and wish to say thank you to all those who have “liked” our Facebook page, which recently has passed the 1,000 mark. It’s a great honour to be a favoured site of news and editorials for such a large number of people, and welcome to all our fellow travellers (unless that sounds too Corbynista).

It can be watched on EuroSport TV channel or the ProBiathlon channel on Youtube.
