Coronavirus in Italy

Coronavirus in Italy

Italy has been the country hardest hit by the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) epidemic in the Western world.

Brexit update: ‘Much Ado About Nothing’

Brexit update: 'Much Ado About Nothing'

Brexit update: ‘Much Ado About Nothing ‘ Two important rounds of voting in the British Parliament this past week turned the old adage ‘No news is good news’ on its head: in fact, there was a lot of news which brought about nothing new and whether bad or good depended on which side of the fence Brits were sitting on. But, first things first. Late on Wednesday, Parliament rejected the deal PM Theresa May had negotiated by an overwhelming majority
