Hull resident Dr Roger Watson had no idea the Government was proposing devolution for [checks notes] Hull until he saw a sticker with a QR code at a bus stop. It's a load of nonsense, obviously.

Humza Yousaf has been a catastrophically bad leader, possibly the worst Scotland has ever had. But he's now at risk of being swept from power because of the only sensible decision he's taken.

A teacher at a school in the south of England with a large Muslim population asked his class how many of them hated Britain. In an instant, 30 hands shot up. Houston, we have a problem.

SIPTU organiser Teri Cregan has criticised Boots over their tax avoidance of £86 million annually.

The Trade Union official lambasted the company for their, ‘huge tax avoidance when the public and community sector are being hit by all manner of cuts.’

Boots, who recorded over £1bn profit last year, were able to avoid the payment, due to a tax loop hole.

SIPTU are organised in Boots across the north, and are campaigning for dignity and respect in the workplace, and for business to become more ethical in how they deal with their workers and society.

SIPTU Organiser Teri Cregan has reacted angrily to the Secretary of State Owen Paterson's recent assertion that there would be 'no negotiation' on the £4bn of cuts facing the north.

He made the remarks while giving a speech at a Co-operation Ireland dinner in Belfast on Thursday evening, stating.

"A settlement is precisely that - a settlement. It is not the opening round of a negotiation... Northern Ireland is now the only part of the United Kingdom that hasn't set a budget following the spending review settlement. That cannot go on."

Ms Cregan branded the statement as "Tory arrogance in the extreme."
