HE’S the Prime Minister of modern rock ’n’ roll, the mastermind behind the most brilliant tracks of a generation and one of the most cuttingly observant minds in music, so I’m thrilled to reveal Noel Gallagher is back doing what he does best. The guitar legend will today unveil a brilliant return with new single We’re On Our Way Now. It is a trademark melancholy guitar anthem that couldn’t be more unmistakably Noel if it was donning round shades and a Union Jack guitar while slagging off brother Liam . Dripping in swagger, the verses darkly recount the passing of a friend without the opportunity to properly say goodbye, before a more upbeat bridge and chorus reflect more positively on the premise of being at peace. He sings: “Remember what might have been, had I walked you home and said I’d see you later? You were living the dream, but when the morning comes, you’re gonna meet your maker. “Good luck in the afterlife.” In lyrics evoking memories of classic Oasis … [Read more...] about Noel Gallagher makes a return to music with new single We’re On Our Way Now

Coronation Street returnee Sharon Bentley's plan to use little Sam to get to Leanne Battersby could be about to backfire, with catastrophic consequences. Nick Tilsley's young son Sam now seems to be in danger, after Sharon's criminal nephew Harvey appeared to confirm his plan to murder Leanne. Sharon is secretly trying to help Harvey track down Leanne, her son Simon Barlow and her former partner Nick, who are currently in witness protection. Harvey and his criminal gang were taken down earlier this month, with Leanne working as an informant for the police - after Simon had got caught up in their drug dealing organisation. He threatened to kill her for her betrayal, and warned that his heavies would find her - so she and Simon were placed into witness protection, and Nick went with them. Sharon has been tasked with finding their location, with Harvey claiming he wants to get them to change their statements and not stand against him when it goes to trial. Using Nick's … [Read more...] about Corrie’s Sam in danger as Harvey confesses deadly plan for Leanne to aunt Sharon
A mum who has been given just six months to live wants to reunite her son with his elderly chef dad as her dying wish. 60 years ago Margaret Bottomley, who was known as Margaret Clowes at the time, moved to London where she met a Scotsman working in a hotel as a sous chef. The pair enjoyed a "causal fling" together for around six months before Margaret returned to live back in Huddersfield. She found out that she was pregnant, but realised that Ian Milne, who would now also be in his 80s, had never given her an address or his phone number. Her son David Bottomley, who is now 60, grew up without ever knowing his real dad and his sister Kelly told Edinburgh Live her mum has always felt guilty. Kelly, 50, said: "My mum's body is shutting down, she has only got about six months to live. "We have been looking for my brother's dad who is from Edinburgh, we have searched everywhere but cannot find him. "His name is Ian Milne and he must be in his 80s, this is our last … [Read more...] about Dying mum’s wish to re-unite grown-up son with elderly chef father he has never met
A CRUMBLING hoarder house crammed with so much junk the estate agent could barely get inside the door has sold for almost £1million. An auction in Sydney, Australia, attracted a bidding frenzy even though buyers were warned it would cost tens of thousands just to clear out the decades of stuff piled on every surface. The house in upmarket riverside suburb Oatley was listed for sale with its contents, including mountains of plastic bags, clothes and old furniture. Video filmed by an estate agent shows him wading through piles of rubbish in the hall, which has shirts and other clothes hanging down wall. He peers into the rooms on either side but can't get into some because of the heaps behind the door. In the barely recognisable kitchen, we can see "washing up from years ago" amid a jumble of other stuff. Finally he squeezes into the bathroom, and jokes all it needs is "a bit of spit and polish". Even the bathtub is full and so is the sink. “You couldn’t walk … [Read more...] about Crumbling hoarder home so full of rubbish buyers could barely get through the door is sold… for £1MILLION
The Indian government is fighting a battle in two fronts. While authorities desperately seek to contain the situation in overwhelmed hospitals, the government is coming under attack on social media over how it is handling the crisis. Over the weekend, President Narendra Modi’s government asked Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to take down the posts, many of which were critical of the government’s role in managing COVID-19 in the country. Government officials say this action was taken to curb misleading content or messaging that could cause panic, but critics say the move is a thinly veiled attempt at censoring criticism of the government. Twitter and Facebook complied with the request made last week but a subsequent removal of posts on Wednesday by Facebook was later clarified to have been an error. But what was said in those social media posts that caused the Indian government to make the request? We analysed the tweets that were removed. Here's what we found. Of the … [Read more...] about India’s COVID crisis: The government ordered some posts to be removed from social media – what did they say?
