A Tory MP's attempt to celebrate election day by waving a flag backfired when she used a 400-year-old version that doesn't include Northern Ireland. Andrea Jenkyns shared the emblem on Twitter just after 6.30am as polls prepared to open across England, Wales and Scotland. But instead of the current Union flag, she shared the flag of Great Britain - without Northern Ireland - that was used from the early 1600s until the beginning of 1801. The version is missing the diagonal cross of St Patrick of Ireland. It is perhaps fitting, as tensions rise in Northern Ireland over trade issues in the Brexit deal - and as some accuse the Tory government of abandoning the region. But Brexiteer Ms Jenkyns insisted she wasn't trying to make a political point. Ms Jenkyns told the Mirror: "It was an honest mistake, been up since the crack of dawn for elections, quickly tweeted, and later saw my mistake so deleted. "Note to self, check and double check!!" Given the amount of … [Read more...] about Tory MP tweets wrong flag from 400 years ago to celebrate election day

It may be May, but this is the UK, and so there is no reason why it should not snow in the fifth month of the year. Skiers have returned to the slopes in the Lake District for the first time since lockdown, and were "giddy with excitement". But with indoor hospitality still 10 days away in England, snow seems less than ideal for those planning an outdoor pint at their local. And while the white stuff did fall up a mountain in the Lake District - far away from the nearest pub - conditions closer to sea level are unlikely to be much better this weekend, forecasters are warning. Though it will be warmer this weekend, it is also expected to be wet and windy. Advertisement The weather will be "giving with one hand and taking with the other", Met Office spokeswoman Nicola Maxey said. She added: "At the weekend we've got one of these low pressure systems coming in which pushes the high pressure out of the way and allows the temperatures to rise a bit … [Read more...] about UK weather: Going for an outdoor pint?
