Black population has increased in Europe over the last decade by at least a million

    There were nearly one million asylum applicants from sub Saharan Africa in Europe between 2010 and 2017, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of data from Eurostat. While Pew Research Center isn’t able to speculate whether the inflow of migrants from sub-Saharan Africa will rise at the same pace in the coming years, a separate 2017 Pew Research Center survey conducted in six sub-Saharan countries found that many respondents said they would migrate to another country if they had the chance. The origins and destinations of migrants in 30 different countries Over the same period, the total population of Eritreans living in Europe increased by about 40,000. Nearly three-quarters of Europe’s sub-Saharan migrant population lived in just four countries: the UK (1.2...

Prince Charles wanted Queen to fire her favourite courtier

    Prince Charles is believed to have rowed with his mother the Queen over her desire for stability and continuity At a recent dinner with friends in Mayfair, Philip joked about his determination to live beyond 95. The reason for his and the Queen's longevity, he explained amid his friends laughter, was to keep Charles from the throne. At 91, he said, the Queen was in robust health and, he implied, could well live for another ten years.

Many of those present believ...

Two Out Of Five Cases Of Cancer Avoidable

    Doctor reassuring patient Nearly 40% of all cancers diagnosed in the UK every year could be avoided through lifestyle changes, according to new research.

Experts presenting the data warned that with smoking rates continuing to go down and rates of obesity on the increase, obesity could overtake smoking as the biggest killer. Cancer Research UK chief executive Sir Harpal Kumar said: Obesity is potentially the new smoking, if we’re not careful. My sense would be it’ll be some time in next couple of decades that we’ll see those two ...

Theresa May aide outed him as gay over Brexit referendum row

    Downing Street has been accused of outing a gay Brexit campaigner in a row over referendum tactics. In an explosive statement last night, Shahmir Sanni said his family in Pakistan was unaware of his sexuality and instructed a law firm to take action. He said a statement made by Theresa May's close aide Stephen Parkinson had put family members at risk. Mr Sanni was set to blow the whistle over claims Brexiteers breached electoral rules during the Vote Leave campaign. In response, Mr Parkinson, one of the Prime Minister's closest advisers, gave a comment in which he said he had been in an 18-month relationship with Mr Sanni before splitting amicably in September 2017. He wrote: That is the capacity in which I gave Shahmir advice and encouragement, and I can underst...
