Brexit has put massive strain on Irish-UK relations but could a tiny islet be the rock on which they perish? Caroline O'Doherty looks at the background to the Rockall dispute.Q. What and where is Rockall?A. It is a tiny, inhospitable, uninhabited granite island that juts out of the North Atlantic about 300km from Scotland and 423km from Ireland. By tiny, we mean just over 17m tall and just under 100m in circumference. By inhospitable, we mean it is completely sheer on one side, while the rest climbs steeply with only two flattish spots with room for only a few people to stand — the summit and a ledge around 10m below. There is also no shelter from the area’s wild storms and no fresh water source. By uninhabited, we mean no disrespect to the seabirds that like to hang out there and catch their breath for a bit but not even they nest there except in rare cases and in very small numbers.Q. Why is it in the news?A. The same reason it has been in the news periodically for the … [Read more...] about Q&A: What is Rockall and why is it in the news?
Students are being taught in the dark at a cash-strapped school which has made the drastic move in a bid to balance the books. Called 'dark day', the school in Yorkshire says the move is necessary to save money and enable cash to be spent elsewhere. This comes as recent figures revealed one in eight Plymouth schools are spending more than they have coming in. A total of five local-authority maintained schools that reported a revenue deficit in 2017/18 - 13% of all such schools, and the highest proportion since available figures began in 2012/13. Campaigners from Calderdale Against School Cuts say the school up north proposed the money-saving move to parents before being introduced. Sue McMahon, chairperson of campaign group, said the situation is "terrible". She said: "At this particular school they call them dark days - the lights just aren't turned on. "What a terrible situation that it really has come to a crunch point if that is happening." Last year Plymouth Live reported how … [Read more...] about Hard-up school turns lights off and teaches in the dark once a week

Kelsey Grammer has pretty much confirmed the news all Frasier fans have been waiting for. The actor has seemingly confirmed that the beloved American sitcom IS coming back. The 64-year-old was spotted walking around London yesterday clutching what could be some brand new scripts in his hand. Kelsey, who is in starring in musical Man of La Mancha at the London Coliseum, was holding a black ringbinder with a piece of white paper stuck to the front of it. The Frasier logo is printed on the paper. Kelsey had the folder tucked under his arm as he held onto his phone and a cup of coffee during his stroll.

The sitcom … [Read more...] about Kelsey Grammer ‘confirms’ the news all Frasier fans have been waiting for
