Happy Easter. As the sun continues to scorch the drought-hardened earth, happy holidaymakers pollute the beaches and motorways in a lemming-like obsession with sea and sand. Is this all down to global warming? The weather I mean, rather than the annual pursuit of motorway jam time. I have always been something of a rebel at […]

THE CLIFTON family have become a formidable force on Strictly – with Kevin, his sister Joanne and ex-wife Karen at the forefront of the pro dancers. But now Karen wants to cut ties with the clan completely following Kevin’s new romance with Stacey Dooley. Karen Clifton has cut ties with ex Kevin by dropping her married name She is dropping Kevin’s surname and returning to her maiden name, Karen Hauer for the new series of the dance show. Sources close to the former couple say tensions reached an all-time high after Kevin denied having feelings for TV host Stacey, who he won the show with in December last year. A TV insider revealed: “Karen confronted Kevin about his relationship with Stacey at the end of the last series but he was adamant it was purely platonic. “Kevin and Stacey insist they only started dating officially this month but Karen is still annoyed he wasn’t more honest about the situation. Karen’s decision comes after Kevin’s romance with Stacey Dooley was revealed last week The Strictly pros were married in 2015 and split up in March last year “She had been considering changing her name for a while but this has cemented her decision. “This is Kevin’s business but she no longer wants to be linked to him. When the next series of Strictly starts she’ll be known as Karen Hauer.” Karen and Kevin wed in 2015, but split in March last year. Karen has moved on by dating opera singer David Webb – while Kevin referred to his partnership with Stacey as a “miracle” at the first night of his new tour on Thursday. Kevin’s second ex-wife Clare Craze said she took an overdose days after he told her their marriage was over amid claims he cheated on her with Karen Kevin referred to his partnership with Stacey as a ‘miracle’ at the first night of his new tour on Thursday Three-times divorced Kevin met Karen while he was still married to his second ex-wife Clare Craze. Dancer Clare told The Sun on Sunday she took an overdose days after Kevin told her their marriage was over amid claims he cheated on her with Karen. A week ago, Stacey’s ex-boyfriend Sam Tucknott told how they became the 15th couple to fall victim to the Strictly curse after he read text messages between her and Kevin including one telling Stacey: “I love you.” Karen has moved on by dating opera singer David Webb Sam branded Kevin a “slippery, slimy snake” and blamed him for breaking up their five-year relationship. Somehow I don’t think his latest romance will be Kevin’s last.

Aljaz said afterwards: “That’s the magic of Strictly, the police must like us, we had heard it might not be able to happen.” Rih LP is still undie cover RIHANNA finally looks ready to get something off her chest after three years with no new music.

Extinction Rebellion protest in London

April 21, 2019

LONDON (Reuters) – Swedish teenage environmental activist Greta Thunberg on Sunday urged hundreds of climate-change protesters in London to never give up their campaign to save the planet as police arrests over disruptions to the city’s landmarks rose above 830.

Climate group Extinction Rebellion has targeted sites such as Oxford Circus and Waterloo Bridge in a campaign of non-violent civil disobedience with the aim of stopping what it calls a global climate crisis.

Police said the number of arrests in connection with the protests rose to 831 on Sunday, and 40 people had been charged with offences such as obstructing a highway and obstructing the police.

Thunberg, a 16-year-old student, spoke to hundreds of activists at Marble Arch, one of a number of London landmarks that have been brought to a standstill over seven days of direct action. Police were allowing the protest to continue at the site.

“We are the ones making a difference – we the people in Extinction Rebellion and the children’s School Strike for the Climate – we are the ones making a difference,” she told cheering crowds.

“And we will never stop fighting, we will never stop fighting for this planet, for ourselves, our futures and for the futures of our children and grandchildren.”

Thunberg inspired a movement of children against global warming when she took a stand in front of Stockholm’s Parliament House last August with her “school strike for climate” sign.

Thousands of students around the world have since copied her, and the schoolgirl took her campaign to European leaders in Strasbourg on Tuesday and to the Vatican, where she met Pope Francis, on Wednesday. [nL5N21Y566] [nL5N21Z31L]

London police said they had moved protesters from roads around Oxford Circus, Piccadilly Circus and Parliament Square, and they were working to re-open Waterloo Bridge.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick said on Saturday that the protests had caused “miserable disruption”. She said there were now 1,500 police officers, up from 1,000 previously, working to clear the roads. [nL5N2220GH]
