With Christmas just around the corner, here are some articles that are worth reading over the festive period. Some of you will not have been able to access the links to articles published in the Times. Earlier this year the newspaper decided to make a charge for viewing the Times online. Most noteworthy subjects appear in all the dailies, some better written than others but the basic message is the same. This month’s articles all come from the Daily Mail.

All Times articles have been removed, so if you see one on your computer it is looking at the old pages. Click on the ‘refresh’ button on your screen to get the latest pages. The refresh button is a circular arrow or similar on most browsers

GM food appears twice and draws attention to the widespread use of pesticides and sprays on the crops. It would appear the Russian scientists have made their own minds up on the subject and persuaded their government to ban corn from the USA. I gave up using Roundup three years ago. There are other effective weed killers on the market.
