The headlines painting the picture of chaos in Britain



A couple of Friday’s front pages are now circulating online – reflecting the chaos in Britain

Let’s start with the Daily Mirror

It’s calling for a general election now and says the British people demand a vote.


Rishi Sunak emerges as the early favourite to become the next prime minister according to the Financial Times.

The headline reads ‘Truss quits after 44 days as PM’


The Metro is fairly scathing in its take.

The paper is labeling Truss as ‘the worst PM’ Britain has ever had, as the bitter battle to become the next leader begins.


Meanwhile, the Daily Star is finding some humour amongst the chaos.

‘Lettuce rejoice’ the paper’s headline reads.

The so-called historic souvenir edition splashes on its live-streamed lettuce outlasting Liz Truss as prime minister. 

The newspaper has put Truss in a race against the vegetable for the last six days. 


Boris Johnson is eyeing up the “mother of all political comebacks” following Liz Truss’s resignation according to The Sun. 

As disaster PM Liz Truss quits, will BOJO be back at Number 10?


Continuing on this theme, the Daily Telegraph says Boris Johnson is privately urging Conservative MPs to back him for a dramatic return to Downing Street, pledging only he can win the Tories the next election


The Daily Mail says states Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak are leading the race to succeed Liz Truss after she became the shortest-serving prime minister in history.

Why ‘zombie viruses’ could be the next biggest public threat



A new report reveals the world will see an increase in so-called ‘zombie viruses’ that are emerging beneath us

A new report by scientists at the French National Center for Scientific Research has revealed the global threat of ‘zombie viruses.’ As climate change continues to take effect, the earth is undeniably getter hotter.

Global warming essentially means significant areas of permafrost are now melting. Permafrost is a frozen layer on or under the Earth’s surface, holding beneath it millions of ‘zombie viruses’ not seen in millions of years.

The now melting permafrost means it is lifting the veil on potentially dangerous microbes that human kind isn’t prepared for.

In Siberia, the scientists uncovered a ‘zombie virus’ which they believe is 50,000 years old. This would be the oldest age of a frozen virus returning to life and able to infect.

Researchers are concerned about the global health impact if the earth continues to warm at its current rate.

Violence erupts across China over lockdowns



There have been more protests on the streets of Shanghai, as frustrations rise over China’s strict Zero Covid policy.

Demonstrations are also spreading to other cities following a deadly apartment fire in the far west of the country – with some linking the tragedy to the continued lockdowns.

Hundreds have taken to the streets in eight cities in China after the tragedy was blamed on Xi Jinping’s draconian zero-Covid lockdown.

From Beijing to Shanghai, the deaths have led to protests across China and police have descended onto the streets to keep order as tensions boil over.

Video on social media showed hundreds of workers marching on a road and confronted by riot police as well as people wearing hazmat suits.

The protest turned violent — footage shared with AFP and captured by a factory worker showed one person lying inert on the ground next to a man in a blood-spattered jacket having his head bound in an apparent effort to staunch a wound.
