By 'Eck Black Pudding is a superfood

FOR many it is the staple element which completes the perfect fry up breakfast.

So how has the humble black pudding been named as one of this year's superfoods?

It takes pride of place on the list featuring the top healthy foods for 2016 along with black beans, seaweed, avocado oil, mushrooms and black rice.


Livingstone questions NATO membership

From the BBC.

The co-chairman of Labour's defence review, Ken Livingstone, has said it does not matter whether the UK is in Nato as the Cold War is "over".

The former London Mayor told the BBC's Daily Politics Nato membership would be one of the issues his review would probably be looking at.

Labour put out a statement afterwards saying it was not part of the review.

Nato is a military alliance between the US and European nations founded in 1949 to counter any Soviet Union threat.

In his Daily Politics interview, Mr Livingstone questioned the 29 nation organisation's role in the modern world, saying: "My main view on this is that it doesn't really matter whether you're in Nato or not terribly much because the Cold War is over.

"If we're to stay in Nato, the question is what's its role? Invading more countries in the Middle East? I'm not in favour of that."


I honestly don't know what I think of this. Part of me thinks it's what's kept peace in Yerp for the last 60 odd years, but when you think about what can be measured you end up with being a target during the Cuban missile crisis, foreign troops on British soil and our involvement in American imperialist adventuring.

Is Ken right? (And lets not forget about the Chagos Islanders kicked out of Diego Garcia)


I'm Duncan, Labour party member from Southampton UK. I'm a writer, Bad Dog is the title of my first novel. I've just finished the second and hope to epublish the two together once it's been proof read.

Here to talk politics and joke about.
