Saturday Newsround – Syria & Sugar


UK personnel attack Syria under foreign orders

A row has broken out in the UK over the disclosure that Prime Minister David Cameron knew about British Personnel who had join or embedded as the term is know, in teams under foreign command, had been involved in air strikes on Syria. In 2013 The UK Parliament voted against the UK going into air strikes with Syria, This has caused criticism from both sides of the House of Commons. From the prime Minister own side MP for Billericay John Baron claimed this was of concern and outside the spirit of the parliamentary vote. Labour are unhappy too, although more that they did not know about it than the action itself as neither acting Labour leader Hariett Harman or Labour Defence spokesman Vernon Coaker were informed. For me opposing this is like opposing an English footballer learning a Spanish style of play if they signed for Real Madrid or Barcelona, that would be nonsense, and stating these personnel have done anything wrong by working to the aims of their leadership is also nonsense. Britain also benefits hugely from the experience of these exchange procedures. The critics also forget the vote was regarding attacking the Assad regime, not ISIS and it’s friends, which is what these airstrikes did.

NHS Chief says children should not be given any sugary drinks

Stewart Stevens the chief of NHS (Nation Health Service) England has been in the news lecturing us that children should not be given sugary drinks to avoid all sorts of potential diseases in later life. This is the same man who wrote the report stating the NHS needs £8 billion a year more to be sustained. Maybe £8 billion minus the departments who come up with these silly nanny state reports then, This is the darker side authoritarian side of the NHS that likes to interfere in something or other on an increasing basis. The NHS should concentrate in helping those who are actually ill, if we are going to have a state funded NHS, that should be it’s priority.
