    The latest figures published by the UK Health Security Agency show that despite the elderly and vulnerable receiving a booster shot in September and October, and the NHS turning into the National Booster Service ever since, the triple/double vaccinated population still accounted for 4 in every 5 Covid-19 deaths in the four weeks up to December 19th 2021.The ‘Covid-19 Vaccine Surveillance Report – Week 51’ was published by the UK Health Security Agency (formerly Public Health England) on Thursday 22nd December 2021, and it shows that the vast majority of Covid-19 cases between November 22nd and December 19th were among...

    Scientists have uncovered evidence for a large-scale, prehistoric migration into Britain that may be linked to the spread of Celtic languages. The mass-movement of people originated in continental Europe and occurred between 1,400 BC and 870 BC. The discovery helps to explain the genetic make-up of many present-day people in Britain. Around half the ancestry of later populations in England and Wales comes from these migrants. ...When the newcomers arrived, the existing British population traced most of its ancestry to people who arrived at the end of the Neolithic, around the time Stonehenge was being built. They were part of...

    Many Brits appear to have put themselves into self-imposed lockdown to save their Christmases as Covid cases rates rocket. As Omicron rampages across the UK, causing consecutive days of record high Covid cases, some would seem to be taking matters into their own hands in the absence of tougher restrictions. In the days leading up to Christmas, shops, restaurants, pubs and more have struggled with cancellations as potential punters try to avoid the virus that would force them to not see loved ones on December 25. This led to some of the country's usually busiest streets, shops and restaurants being...

    Attends indoor event surrounded by thousands of maskless people.. An MP who claimed she felt “unsafe” around people who don’t wear masks proudly posted maskless photos of herself to Twitter enjoying a party surrounded by people not wearing masks. Whoops. “I feel incredibly unsafe in the chamber,” when Tories don’t wear masks Labour MP Zarah Sultana stated during a recent BBC News interview. ... Those fears were apparently absent when Sultana visited the MOBO awards in Coventry, during which she was photographed in close proximity to others at an indoor event attended by thousands. “The @MOBOAwards came to Coventry last...

    University of Oxford Professor Jim Naismith asserts that despite England dropping its mask mandate in July and Scotland keeping its rules in force, official data shows this “has made no meaningful difference” to infection rates.Naismith goes on to argue that new face mask mandates imposed in England today are “unlikely to have much of an impact” in fighting off the spread of the Omicron variant.Despite flatlining case numbers and declining deaths, partly achieved because England chose to lift lockdown restrictions in the summer unlike many European countries, mask mandates are once again back in force.Face coverings are compulsory in shops,...

    Dozens of customers who stopped for a drink at Britain’s highest altitude pub got a longer stay than they bargained for, after the building was cut off by a blizzard. Sixty-one people woke up Monday after their third night at the Tan Hill Inn in the Yorkshire Dales, 270 miles (435 kilometers) north of London. They have been unable to leave since Friday, when a late autumn storm brought snow and heavy winds that felled power cables and blocked roads. The pub sits 1,732 feet (528 meters) above sea level and is used to being cut off by bad weather....

    Critics round on exhibition’s alternative interpretations of Hogarth paintings, describing them as "wokeish drivel" Tate Britain in London has defended the approach taken in its Hogarth and Europe exhibition (until 20 March 2022) following a wave of criticism focused on wall labels written by contemporary commentators, which one critic described as “wokeish drivel”. The museum’s director, Alex Farquharson, tells The Art Newspaper that “Tate Britain has both the confidence to provide a public platform for those conversations and the expertise to contribute to them directly.” The exhibition, curated by Alice Insley and a former Tate senior curator Martin Myrone, presents...

    Hourly power prices are set to surge on Tuesday evening as low wind levels mean more expensive coal-powered plants will need to be fired up. Power for the peak hour between 5pm and 6pm rose to £1,067 a megawatt-hour during the day-ahead auction for Tuesday. It’s the third time prices have jumped above £1,000 this month, with the latest peak seen last Monday. With wind power accounting for just 10pc of demand for the peak hour, output will need to be ramped up at more expensive thermal goal and gas power stations.

    British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday announced that all new homes and buildings in England will be required to have electric car chargers installed beginning next year. The legislation, which Johnson announced at the annual Confederation of British Industry (CBI) conference, will install up to 145,000 extra charging points throughout Europe every year, according to a statement from the prime minister’s office. The requirement will also apply to buildings undergoing renovation. Facilities that are left with more than 10 parking spaces will be compelled to install electric vehicle charging points.

    The crown jewel of Henry VIII’s 16th century fleet was its flagship, the venerable Mary Rose. More than 500 years after its launch, the vessel remains a precious cultural treasure. Though she ploughed the Atlantic and battled with her heavy cannons for 34 years – and laid buried beneath the turbulent English Channel for 437 more, bacteria and chemicals have begun eating away at her remnants, on display at the Mary Rose Museum in Portsmouth, England. Thankfully, the ship’s conservators have received a helping hand.A new X-ray method has allowed an international team of researchers to identify zinc-sulfide nanoparticles in...

    The Spectator has published an article citing official data from Public Health England, which states that for the over 30’s, “the rates of Covid infection per 100,000 are now higher among the vaxxed than the unvaxxed.”Well, this is awkward.The article, written by Lionel Shriver, is titled ‘The absurd theatre of vaccine passports’.It points out that according to official data, vaccines only offer about 17 per cent protection for the over-fifties.“As I observed then, this would mean the vaxxed and unvaxxed pose a comparable danger to each other,” writes Shriver.“All Covid apartheid schemes are therefore insensible.”She then clearly explains how the...

    43-year-old Matt Doughty from Hertfordshire couldn't believe his eyes when he watched the footage back. Doughty, along with his friend Kevin, had been sitting at home watching the football on TV when he received an alert on his phone from his doorbell camera to tell him that someone was outside. When he played back the footage he expected to see a person standing on his doorstep, but was surprised to discover that the camera had instead been triggered by something in the sky. The object, which consisted of three bright lights in a triangular formation, could be seen slowly moving...

    The Margate Shell Grotto is one of Kent, England's greatest cultural treasures. Some 4.6 million seashells line the walls of the subterranean passageway in ornate mosaics—but just as interesting as the craftsmanship on display is the mystery behind it. The grotto was discovered accidentally in the 19th century, and to this day no one knows who built it ... or why. According to most accounts, farmer James Newlove and his son Joshua were digging a duck pond in 1835 when they struck upon the underground cavern. A closer look revealed that they weren't the first people to enter the space,...

    Two complete statues of a woman and a man, along with the head of a child, were found at the site of the old St Mary's Norman church in Stoke Mandeville, Buckinghamshire, south east England, while archeologists were excavating a ditch around the foundations of an Anglo-Saxon tower. As experts working on the High Speed 2 (HS2) project dug down, they found the three "stylistically Roman" busts, Two of the busts were made up of a head and torso which had been split apart, which experts say "is not entirely unusual," because statues were commonly vandalized before being torn down....

    There’s a growing list of veteran pop and rock acts who’ve announced an end to touring — Paul Simon, Joan Baez, Elton John — and we can now add another: John Mayall. The godfather of the British blues scene, who will turn 88 next month, has announced an end to his “epic road-dog days”: “I have decided, due to the risks of the pandemic and my advancing age, that it is time for me to hang up my road shoes,” he says.
