ANTOINE GRIEZMANN was the talk of social media this weekend as an exceptionally poor choice of fancy dress costume caused outrage.It was a massive error in judgement and one he will undoubtedly learn from, but let’s put that to the side for now.The France star remains a fantastic talent and it is believed he will leave Atletico Madrid in the summer.Barcelona and Manchester United the favourites to land the forward.So we asked our friends at Football Whispers to look into the future of the forward and decide whether he’d be better suited to life at the Nou Camp or Old Trafford.United and Jose Mourinho came close to landing the Frenchman last summer.He spoke to the Portuguese and an offer was on the table, but Atleti’s transfer ban put him in a bind.If he left the Spanish club he would have abandoned them at the moment they needed him the most. PREM'S NO1 City, Spurs, Chelsea, United all make it into the top five most valuable squads in Europe So he decided to … [Read more...] about Manchester United or Barcelona?

IN the olden days, you could always predict which countries would go to war next: It was always us versus either the French or the Germans.But then things went nuts.Who could have predicted in 1970 that our next bout of international fisticuffs would be against Argentina?Or that America would go to war after that with Iraq?And then there was that fishing-based stand-off between Spain and Canada. No one saw that one coming.Today, things are even more confused.In Syria, we have Russia currently bombing both ISIS and the Free Syrian Army, which opposes the president, Bashar al-Assad.And now we have America bombing the actual Syrian army, which leaves the British to sort out the Judean people’s front in Iraq and the popular Front of Judea in Beirut.Or is it Iran?Except it’s tricky to concentrate on doing that because we’ve got a bunch of loonies in the EU saying that Gibraltar should be Spanish and there are murmurings from the south Atlantic that the Argies are up for … [Read more...] about Scared Donald Trump will start World War Three?

FINLAND has been named the safety country in the world - 77 places ahead of Britain which is considered more dangerous than ZIMBABWE.The northern European country saw off the United Arab Emirates, Iceland and Oman, which finished second, third and fourth respectively.Incredibly, Britain could only manage to claim 78th place - behind Zimbabwe, The Gambia and Jordan.The ranking system was created as part of the World Economic Forum's Travel Tourism Competitiveness report.In last place was the South American nation of Colombia, which has for years been plagued by an extraordinarily high crime and murder rate.Wooden spoon runner up was war-torn Yemen, where a brutal conflict dubbed the "forgotten war" has raged since 2015.These two countries are preceded by El Salvador, Pakistan and Nigeria respectively.El Salvador has one of the worst crime rates on the planet and multiple people are killed in the tiny central American country every day.Pakistan, on the other hand, is home to … [Read more...] about Finland is named the world’s safest country – but the UK and US rank BELOW Zimbabwe
"Now, the assessment of risk for Americans visiting North Korea has become too high," Young Pioneer Tours, the China-based travel agency that had taken Otto Warmbier to North Korea, said in a Facebook post. The company, which advertised North Korea as "probably one of the safest places on Earth to visit," came under fire after Otto Warmbier was medically evacuated to the US last week, suffering from severe brain damage. He died six days later in his home town of Cincinnati, Ohio, "There has still been almost no information disclosed about his period in detention," the company said in its statement. "Considering these facts and this tragic outcome we will no longer be organizing tours for US citizens to North Korea." The agency based in the Chinese city of Xian was founded in 2008 by a British expat with a motto of taking adventurous travellers to "the places your mother wants you to stay away from" including North Korea and Iran. One of a few tour agencies that visit … [Read more...] about China tour agency stops North Korea trips
Thousands of demonstrators gathered outside the White House on a sunny fall afternoon chanting the same "yes we can" that filled the air when Barack Obama took up office three years ago. This time though they had not gathered to celebrate a victory, but had come from all over the country to demand that their president stop the Keystone XL pipeline. "I am disappointed he has not been a stronger leader on climate and energy," Courtney Hight, Co-director of the Energy Action Coalition, an association of environmental groups organized by young people, told Deutsche Welle. Hight, who in 2007 campaigned tirelessly for Obama, addressed a crowd to express a sentiment shared by many others. "He is the leader that we elected and we need him to stand up to big oil and block the tar sands pipeline," she shouted. The 2,700-kilometer (1,677-mile) long pipeline would transport crude from oil sands in the Canadian province of Alberta through the US to the Gulf of Mexico. Because the pipeline … [Read more...] about Controversial pipeline threatens Obama’s credibility
