A Few Tips For Secure Online Shopping

Mobile Phone Use & Driving

Drivers and the Mobile Phone

A proposal from the government has been announced, that the penalties for being caught using a mobile phone whilst driving should be virtually doubled from their current level.

UK Population Explosion & Teacher training

The Population Explosion in the UK

The geographical limits of the UK are obvious to any observer. An island defines its area very exactly, there are no grey areas surrounding borders when the sea is the limit of the realm.

The rising population brings many issues carrying both plusses and minuses. On the economics front, the increase is mainly beneficial.

The growth in available work force, which is currently enjoying good levels of employment, has the potential to increase the productive capacity of the economy thus generating greater tax revenues.

The social implications of squeezing a population of in excess of 70 million into our islands will have to be properly addressed. Housing, transport, health and education will be areas under greatest pressure.

The population is rising through net immigration and a substantial increase in birth rates, more than keeping Continue reading “UK Population Explosion & Teacher training”
