See how Boris and the Conservatives IMMEDIATELY tried to turn this into another "siding with those evil Russians" narrative again and making Corbyn and Labour sound like the enemies... instead of addressing the fact that it is true, he is cornered, and can see no way out other than by trying to weaponise Russia-phobia against the ones calling him out.
There's no evidence that Russia was behind this! Even, if the Russiaphobic smear turns out to be true - which these days is not needed for the meadia to proclaim it so, then perhaps we should look at it as Russia doing the British public a favour. This anti Russia smear is nothing more than deflection, playing to patriotic jingoism to spin away underhanded dealings. It's a good thing the BBC are independent and impartial and would never take the non evidential pronouncements of a UK-US founded body,on face value...
Do you deny that the NHS is up for tender or are you disputing the evidence or even its
source....politicians get a grip this is our lives you are playing childish games with...
So we need to find the leak, make vague allusions to Corbyn being a Russian stooge, and ignore the actual substance. That’s clear then
So which is it Boris? A leak of official documents, or a fake? I noticed that you are not claiming the documents are forgeries.
The labour party should be very careful about using leaked documents. It could happen to any government of any colour if we have civil servants willing to break their rules of service.
Why must he? To stop people seeing it 🙄 god I'm sick of him.
Definitely, and we need to see the document regarding Russian interference that Downing St. Is refusing to make public
Liars both boris Johnson and trump they think they above the LAW vote LABOUR
So, let me get this straight Prime Minister. You dont give a toss that you've been caught lying. You dont care we all know what you're really about now. You're just bothered about who grassed you up?
It's REALLY important that we find out who keeps telling the truth, they must be stopped!!
So this is what those documents get from your coverage bbc? The source of the documents? How about what's in the documents? Didn't see any coverage for that.. I wonder if it was the other way around, would you have treated it differently?
We must find them .. and thank them for revealing the truth.
This is needed when Boris and his cronies are hence by definition liars.
I am voting Labour, but the thought of Russian hacking is truly distressing. The contents of the report are critical, but if it has been hacked by the Russians, then I would strongly urge JC to address it. It is also shameful that Boris has not released the report into Russian election meddling. The Russians only want to turn us against each other. They will do this by targeting all sides of the political spectrum.
So instead of being worried he was caught lying, he's more worried about who dobbed him in. And this is the guy Tory voters want in charge.
So an investigation now is needed for a document he said yesterday never existed the crap that comes out of his mouth
So merit of the document isn’t the problem? Now the problem is who leaked it? All documents should be public at all times. People are more mature than you think.
Probably would of been better not having the meeting in the first place and leaving the NHS alone...just a thought.
The first source originated from Russia, but I don't hold much hope that these are an exception to that.
Eh? Didn’t he say they were all Labour lies last night?
Is this the same Boris who said that the report he saw showed no Russian interference? If so...
Shocking. Being able to save the NHS millions of pounds by buying drugs from US pharmaceutical companies rather than being forced to buy from the EU companies because we are a member. It's simple a pro EU remain rhetoric with Labour grabbing headlines saying boo hiss bad America.
The document that was a total fabrication a couple of days ago...hmmm
So an investigation for who leaked documents that don’t exist. I’m confused Boris!!
Welcome to the power vaccum left by our "intervention" into other countries. Great job.
Sad News, People Gone in Major Numbers What For, If were Protesters, Probe is Addressable, Prayers and favour for them.
Speaks volumes that by now, this just feels like ho-hum routine news rather than a shocking tragedy.
Thanks to UK and USA, the so called champions of Human Rights.
I wish there could be a world organization with group of highly power given good peoples, so that they can clean everything and even no country have no rights to stop them.
Chaos everywhere!!! There's no hope for mankind.
Those are rookie numbers. One American can kill 20 in a school all by himself here, and Republicans will fight for his right to do it.
I am just here to read the comments from all of the political policy and military experts.
Are they trying to kill the population.of dozen at a time
That’s practically a daily current event in America. We don’t need international enemies we destroy ourselves.
People have lost their chicken minds. RIP
I think they said "mission accomplished" !!!
This happened last night 🙄.
to silence the ongoing protest which targets iran and their loyalist govermment.very bad trend this days,the only means of free expression.
The government kills the people here !!!
24 houres later. Good job BBC.
This is insane.
Where ever Americans step in, you'll never see security and safety.
Even without the butcher of Baghdad
May Allah guide us in peace
Yesss... Blackwater back in business !!!
It all started because of the 9/11 hoax which since then is causing all the conflicts in the Middle East till today. And for what? A holy war for the name of freedom and justice but in reality is just for Oil and Gas. The chaos that is happening there is beyond any previous wars or conflicts in any other region in the world.
The heros of that day was the police the public and the paramedics give them a medal they all deserve it my thoughts go out to the 2 people who died and the ones that were injuried to. We got fantastic emergency services everyone who played a part of helping others that day my hats go off to them. More could have died. I salute the ones that helped out. We need more people like this
Obviously that monster was not worth trying to rehab but too late for the victims who tried their best at this matter 😖 speechless !
The need of the hour is to pray for eternal peace for the two young lives unnecessarily lost. May God grant their families the strength to carry on. Rest in peace, angels.
There still seem to be many questions surrounding this and what was the story with that white van /lorry that we were told had 'jack knifed' on the bridge?
Amazing response from our emergency services. 4 minutes!!! And those heroes that intervened 👏🏻
I really feel for the family of Amanda Champion. This is like a form of torture for them, seeing their disabled daughter's murderer hailed as hero, and being thrust into a kind of ethical controversy. This must be very painful for them.
Bravo to BBC for this article btw. It's so well presented.
Buses have small hammers here and there.
They are used to escape when the bus is in trouble.
Can a conclusion be drawn here?
Americans should learn from this. If he had a gun the outcome could have been much different. Yet conservatives here point to this and say we don’t need gun control because the bad guys will use knives. Sorry for the loss... I’m glad he didn’t have a gun.
The man that used the Narwhal horn should be knighted, with the Narwhal horn!
Research idea: Tavistock Institute.
Thank heavens he didn’t have a gun!
The UK is infected with the wave of European immigration. So this happened. May God bless England leaving Europe.
English people are wonderful and this proves that it doesn't matter how divided the country may be politically, the country is united when it comes to how to act heroically in times of terror.
This was really confusing and complicated to read .
very cool report bbc, excellent reporting imo 😀 cheers
Such brave people.
That , was a great article!
My heart breaks
Brilliantly wrote article 👌🏼
Heroes saved the day, that's what happened.
My dear Segun, things have changed much since then. You are still without understanding: look at the list of that team again, you will notice a big aberration twice over. The first: no quota was observed in that team. Lopsided team list. Even now, the quota idea has to give way to buharian idea of Nigeria; The team list has to have more names from the north. Perhaps you talk of unity in diversity, but that has changed. It is now a different kind of unity
I still have not worked out how and why the guy/hero had a tusk
What really happened, or just what the media want show...?
Spanish NHS is excellent. They saved my brother many years ago after a motorbike accident where he broke his head. They have the most advanced equipment and the doctors and nurses are awesome. We are the gold standard for organ transplants too. Our SNS (NHS) is a national pride
A friend lost weight. She feel in love with keto and exercise. We went to Mexico in May. She ate breakfast, walked for 3 hours in the morning, went to the gym for 3 hours, came to the pool for 3 hours, showed, ate dinner, walked for 1-2 hours. For all 7 days. I talked to her about it. Needless to say, we are no longer friends. Her choice. She replaced one unhealthy addiction...overeating with another one...too much exercise.
I used to be addicted to exercise back when I was in my 20's and early 30's. I now have arthritis pretty bad. I had to find new ways to get exercise and now at 44, I am walking every morning with my dog. She keeps me motivated. I am not the slim person I once was, but that's life and I am not unhappy with my appearance
It’s very real and, from personal experience, is far from healthy. It makes you unhappy, constantly anxious, physically unwell and mentally even worse.
An healthy relationship with exercise is, of course, great for overall physical and mental wellbeing. But exercise addiction is far from healthy.
It is completely and addiction, and the only way to recover is to stop exercising for a period of time. Being at too-low of a weight and over exercising is far more dangerous than being overweight, can cause irreversible metabolic and hormonal damage, and can destroy relationships and lives.
People tell me I was like that in 2010. "You looked gaunt" they say. I felt superhuman with a 43bpm resting heart rate. Never been healthier I'd say. Still, people sometimes push too hard, too long.
I have two sisters. The older sister was an exercise and diet junkie, alwyas going on about the right foods and each night (seriously) she would exercise, either step aerobics or running, anything to keep her weight down. She was slim and toned. She is now almost a cripple as her joints are shot to bits with the impact and she has chronic digestive issues. Next sister up had a sensible approach to exercise but still suffers medical joint issues, whilst I was the younger couch potato, and suffer from no such thing and barely visit my doctor for any other ailments. My secret? I don't 'exercise' I just keep moving around and eat what I want when I want IN MODERATION. It is not rocket science.
I think this one depends on your reason for doing it in the first place.
I remember being obsessed with exercise, trying to get in shape and ended up looking anorexic because I was still not happy with my body.
Now I’m in love with crossfit for the way it makes me feel, my mental health is fine and I love my food
I was a fitness addict. Throwing up after workouts, and despite injuries continued to exercise; I was addicted to the endorphins which rid me of pain. This unhealthy cycle eventually led to chronic pain for years....
Those endorphins you feel after exercising.....amazing feeling of health and goodness ....I love training , weights ,running etc ....I must confess ....it can be very addictive...but I'd rather be addicted to exercise than to say gambling etc ....but moderation is key ...
I was addicted to exercise...the way it made me feel. I couldn't relax unless I was totally exhausted from exercising. It lasted most of my adult life. I am only just learning to have a healthy relationship with exercise.
I remember that feeling of being superhuman from over exercising. It makes you feel like you can never stop, but you have to because you tend to have an overabundance of seratonin kicking in all of the time and then you can't sleep. Sleep is extremely important . It helps the HGH kick in which is something you lose each year after the age of thirty. Also, too much exercise is really not good for your adrenal glands because you can burn out. HGH is what helps to keep your muscles tone... I try to focus on that more now that I am 60. Trying to do what's best to make it kick in naturally includes sleep, proper nutrition, and mixing up an exercise routine for 30 minutes a day. Works for me and I am in love with this routine and feel much happier!!!☺
I have a cousin like this and all she is for it is healthy. However, if she misses a workout you don't want to be around her until she gets it in.
Exercise in its entirety is healthy and important for the body especially the mind as it cleans it as it renews cells and stimulates memory
Try substituting for a hobby my brother does heroin to keep him from being to active! There are ways to deal with this.
Excess of anything is not good . Moderation of almost everything is good 🙂 . Middle path is the optimum path to chose .
The chase of the endorphin high has led many to suffer in their later years with bad knees, foot arch issues, even hip and back issues. I used to tell a colleague that triathlons were going to be the death of him.
worse things. Basically switching a OC personality from one thing to another. A beneficial thing
I’ll take 5 words I’ll never say for 2000 Alex. “What is: I was addicted to exercise”
I’m addicted to working. I go to work almost everyday. Since y’all don’t know where to use addiction now.
She must have got to know the area really well with so much walking - great! And what bliss swimming every day for 3 hours 👍🏻
Nothing without its disadvantages but as long as my legs allow me i will keep pushing, this is so enjoyable
Whaaaaattt?!😂😂🙌 I'll love to be addicted to Something as positive as this one 😏
Never see the point in jogging especially next to roads . You breath twice as fast and so breath twice as much pollution in. Not healthy
From my experience, it is considered unhealthy when the people around you demand all of your time.
Switching to exercise 'addiction' often keeps people alive...why is this so negative? Sorry BBC for not being an alcoholic so you can feel sorry for us...ffs
If you're addicted to anything you're in for a life sentence. Really sad for something controlling you rather than you controlling your own life.
There is at least one fish that can walk onto land and breathe. Adapt or become extinct. Survival of the fittest.
And this is why the world is in huge trouble. The phytoplankton in the ocean produce as much as 60% of the world's oxygen. When they go...
always follow the money - "undertaken by conservation group IUCN" so not exactly impartial researchers. What would the results be (and what level of credibility) if the research had been conducted by the coal lobby.
Not saying it's wrong, just go in with your eyes open.
If I was listening in science class, I remember something like warmer water has more gas ppm. So if oceans warm why less O2 ppm? This doesn't make logical sense from the density perspective...
Honestly, those big creatures in the sea are responsible for this nd something drastic must be done evacuate them
If you follow the effects of sewage & fertilizer runoff in Florida, you know the devastating effects of red tides, the toxic algae that smothers the ocean, causing oxygen levels to decrease & leading to death of marine life & respiratory illness in humans. I've experienced it firsthand & it's terrible to see the effects.
The shift in species at times of El Niño current and warmer ocean temps should have already alerted us .... we have got to get on top of this.
Let's be honest, humans play the biggest part in the decline of stuff on this planet, just easier to blame other things, makes you feel like you don't have a part in it.
Well we are killing the food chain from the Whales to the micro organisms . We will reap what we sow and it won't be pleasant .
The tiny, tiny pool of data they collected to make this fear mongering statement is shameful. You can honestly promote climate awareness without this sort of nonsense.
They’ve been saying this for the past 10 years with loads of data and evidence. Once the oceans are dead ....???
The same as they did before the great extinction?
Yep, it's happened before and will happen again, humans aren't so important that they'll alter the universe 🙄
Silly pseudo-science. Oceans are warming therefore there is always going to be less oxygen in water at higher temperatures. You can do a rough calculation on the back of an envelope. Which in fact appears to be what they have done
Hang on a minute, scientists have been complaining about to much CO2 in the oceans, causing heating of the planet and and ocean level increases. So now not enough? Ok lets build those Coal Power stations to generate CO2.
Phytoplankton produces up to 85% of the world's oxygen. We don't eat phytoplankton, marine animals do so they are responsible.
What is threatening our ocean species is overfishing - right down to phyto plankton and krill that sustain the entire system !
So the water levels have dropped by 2%?!? Seeing as water is H2O. You need oxygen to create a water molecule. So if the oxygen levels have dropped by 2% then the water levels have dropped by 2%. What happened to climate change alarmists telling us the oceans were going to rise and kill everyone on the shores. Doesn't this compete with that?!?
More signs of a decaying ecosystem. Action needs to happen now to reverse this!
Tuna,marlin and sharks.. it reminds me a novel of B.A known to all as "The Old Man and the Sea"
Don’t worry the planet will take care of it, it has repaired a lot before humans!!
But oxygen should be abundant in the oceans due to the process of photosynthesis, in the presence of lights intensity, so I don't think the aquatic species are facing such threats.
Well that is the planet f'ed then. No oxygen ... mass extinctions in the oceans ... increased temperatures on the planet, ... more extreme weather .... & 2 top it all an election in the UK; oh deep joy 🙂
And so many people think burning fossil fuels is fine. I don't get it! We are IN TROUBLE
Governments, corporations and the mega wealthy will deny it, they're the ones you have to convince! Oh and every climate change denialist that will troll me and this climate change data!
After watching "The Meg", I'm good without the sharks.
How can people here seriously be like "yeah if politicians will not listen this is what's happening." Actually wtf is wrong with these people. It's about people who try to kill others and how can you sit there and be like that. Nobody has ever the right to kill people because they don't fit in their world view. It doesn't matter if you are left, right, middle or whatever. You don't go and kill anyone.
Gradually the unthinkable becomes tolerable, then acceptable, then legal, then praised 😞
Trying to Kill innocent people to get a point across how very childish.
A politician slapped the lable far right on this incident, and an employee said it might have had an impact on it. But there is no proof that a "far right" individual had anything to do with this. Let us condemn violence and use common sense to overcome our basic human reactions.
So glad no one was hurt and I pray they catch the person responsible.
Next war in europe won't be a nacionalist war, wil be a religious war.
I highly doubt that.
Politicians sent the bomber, conspiracy,
Oh my. This country is going down the drain.
Yes yes the same Old crap as allways.🙄🙄🙄
Of course u would say that BBC... because your extreme left
The far right is part of every civilisation arising from ignorance and discontent. Give those things some attention and the threat shrinks a bit. It never goes away though ...
Climate activists had best take care in that city.
Why is it hate speech to speak against those who won’t integrate and want to kill you? Why is it hate speech to tell the truth and why do you defend it. That’s the real question
We have come to this
BBC is fake news
Words != Action
Some people 😬😬😬
Imagine that!!!! 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄
Political party "vox" are responsible for this.
Oh they’re pesky, you got a throw it right at them
So what ?
If people blow up fireworks in the mouths of dogs and cats...Predominantly during CHRISTMAS festivities!
This is what the far right is all about , hate speech which hides as free speech leads to hate crime - sickening this is getting stronger around the globe
these will cause serious health problems and cause a damage to the lungs, and also environmental changes like conditonal climate warm. I wish i was there i could have improve my geographical experience which outdoor research.
You can't wet things down with no water.
We are In the worst drought that we have ever experienced.
That is 2million hectares burnt in our state alone. Think the size of Wales burnt to a crisp.
We have no rain forecast and we haven't even hit our actual summer temperatures of 40c plus!
“The fire across almost 300,000 hectares (1,150 sq m) is ...”
300,000ha is 3,000,000,000sqm, not 1,150sqm.
Just dreadful. I was at Botany in November when the fires in NSW were raging. Such a beautiful country. Heartbreaking for everyone
Australian firefighters must be exhausted!! Good of the Canadians to help but my guess is they could use more help from a cpl more nation's?!! Their organization is pretty darn good its just overwhelingly too much!! Stay safe everyone!
Any spare firefighters in UK that could lend a hand??? Cant be too many fires to put out in the winter there. Im sure the Oz government would sort out a nice business class ticket.👍🏼 SOS
No fire is too big to put out. It's just Australia does not have the proper resources to do it with and most of the poor firefighters are volunteers even though has hundreds of bushfires a year.
I wish the mega blaze wake up people, urge them the seriousness of climate and ecological crisis
So awful i do hope they can get it under control . So tragic for everyone and the poor wildlife. 😢😢😢😢😢😢
Nothing to worry people, the NYE fireworks extravaganza and its worldwide broadcast is on schedule and no plans to cancel it; that's what the Sydney's major Clover Moore told the press early this week. The reason is too much money invested and concern with the lost of revenue.
Well, Nero set Roma on fire.
Yesterday they said it was south of the city but it’s north and west and we have family out there. Please be safe. xx
Most bush fires in past have been too big to put out. Wake up urban Australia to the reality of your country. The government cannot always save you all - even if they seriously wanted too.
Its not only Sydney ..its all over the country ...the firefighters are just heroes..pity the useless PM and his mates wont listen to the scientists ..the firefighter chiefs and other knowledgeable people and acknowledge climate change ..offering prayers is a useless insult to those affected ..
I live quite close to the western Sydney fire. Its a wait and see with 40 degrees expected Tuesday. Less wind today.
this indicates that they still need firefighters, at least every certain area, they put officers. and quickly take action.so that the fire does not spread
My cousin's husband was driving behind a car when the passenger in the front car throw a lighted cigarette out of the window ken stoped his car as the cigarette started to flame, by the time they got to it it was going up well it took time to get the fire out he burnt his hands doing so, this is what is happening they just don't care some of then really sad.
An ecological catastrophe for Australia but their government doesn't seem that bothered about it. 🤷🏻♂️
How awful. Feel sad for the wild life and the residents of Australia.
Multi-national emergency effecting world nationals living in Australia. Are the armies coordinating with fire fighters to deal with this tragedy effecting lives and property?
Fire in Brazil,fire in California,fire in Venezuela,fire in Sydney! Why so many inferno? Who or what started all these ? Do we need to destroy our environment with fire? Life and property going up in flames, species of plants and animals going into extinction why? Carelessness of human being on this world!
stay safe the fire fighters must be exhausted only hope if for rain to help to control the fires and a lot of skill in using the resources to be affect.
Yup and Britain is doing its bit to "help" by building HS2 which will further add to Co2 emissions for the next 120 years. Well done Westminster!
I wish and pray for a sudden rainfall. Please...
My thoughts go out to the people in Sydney and other places that have had fires .
If only they could get rain. But it's highly unlikely 😢
