News Snippets

  • Car colours +

    For the first time, Britain’s favourite car colour is black – overtaking white, which was the number one for the last 4 consecutive years. Over half a million black cars were registered in 2017, followed by grey in second position. Bottom of the colour chart was yellow, with just over 10,000
  • Bath tax +

    Bath could become the first UK city to introduce a tourist tax! A proposal has been drafted to charge hotel guests £1 per night - which could potentially generate over £2 million. This would be used to maintain the attraction such as the Roman baths and abbey.
  • Final straw +

    A campaign is gathering momentum to ban single use plastic straws, which can take up to 500 years to decompose. Pub chain Weatherspoons have revealed that they get through 70 million straws in a year! As of today, manufacturers are banned from using plastic microbeads in toiletries such as face scrubs, toothpaste and shower gels and later this year, there will be a ban on their sale.
  • Blue is back! +

    The iconic dark blue British passport is making a comeback and will start being issued from October 2019. The old hard cover blue passports were introduced in 1920 and changed to the current burgundy version in 1988 – eight years after joining the EU following sustained pressure from Brussels. It will still cost the same, £72.50 to renew.
  • Cinema ban lifted +

    Saudi Arabia has lifted a 35 year ban on public cinemsa! All but one of the country's cinemas were shut down in the 1980's as many religious leaders believed Western films encouraged sin. Over the next decade around 300 licenses are expected to be granted, creating many 1000's of jobs.
  • Obesity capital +

    Britain is shamefully at the top of the leader board for obesity in both males and females. The report shows 26.9% of British men are obese compared to an average European rate of 22.9% - the least obese are in Portugal, at 19.8%. Women fare even worse, with 29.2% obese versus Austria at only 16.3%! Failure to exercise and an excessive drinking culture are thought to have contributed to these shocking statistics. Soon the Brits will be taking the crown off America...
