It Is February 2021Here are some of the Headlines this Month well today1South Africa halts Oxford jabSouth Africa has suspended its rollout of the Oxford/AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine after research suggested it offers limited protection against mild and moderate cases of disease caused by the coronavirus variant discovered there. The UK’s vaccines minister insists that the British public can have confidence in Covid vaccines. Nadhim Zahawi said an annual booster jab is likely to be required, with the first to come in the autumn.2. Queen ‘lobbied to hide wealth’The Queen’s personal lawyers successfully lobbied ministers to change a draft law in order to conceal her “embarrassing” private wealth from the public, according to The Guardian. Government memos from the National Archives show the monarch used a private solicitor to secure exemption from a transparency law. However, Buckingham Palace says the claims are “simply incorrect”.3. More heavy snow forecastFurther heavy snowfall is on the way to parts of England as Storm Darcy brings in winter weather. There could be as much as 15cm in parts of the East Midlands, Yorkshire and Humber, particularly over the Lincolnshire Wolds. The Met Office says it has been “bitterly cold” because of strong easterly winds from Ukraine and the Black Sea.4. Probe into extremist groupsMinisters have ordered an investigation into the extreme fringes on both ends of the political spectrum, The Daily Telegraph reports. The review will be led by Lord Walney - a former Labour MP who was appointed as the government’s independent adviser on political violence and disruption. He said that there was “not an equivalence of threat between the far-left and the far-right” in the UK, with the latter a graver threat.5. Flood kills 14 in IndiaAt least 14 people have died and 170 more are missing after part of a Himalayan glacier broke off, triggering a huge flood in northern India. The floodwaters burst open a dam and a deluge of water poured through a valley in the state of Uttarakhand. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said: “India stands with Uttarakhand and the nation prays for everyone’s safety there.”6. ‘Credible case’ of Uighur genocideA formal legal opinion has stated that there is a “very credible case” that the Chinese government is carrying out genocide against the Uighur people. It concludes that there has been deliberate infliction of harm on Uighurs in detention, measures to prevent women giving birth and the forcible transfer of Uighur children out of their community. A legal opinion “does not have a legal standing, like a court judgement, but can be used as a basis for legal action”, the BBC reports.7. Chains call for level playing fieldBritain’s biggest retail chains, including Tesco, Morrisons, Asda and Waterstones, have teamed up to call for an overhaul of business rates to help them to compete with online giants such as Amazon. The retailers, who pay £8bn a year in business rates, are calling on ministers to “rebalance the tax base to ensure online and bricks-and-mortar retailers pay a similar proportion of tax”.8. Elderly rebel on TV licencesUp to 750,000 older people are refusing to pay for a TV licence. The Times says this has created a £117m deficit for the BBC, which abolished free licences for over-75s last summer after the government said the corporation would have to pay for them. Refusing to pay for a licence can lead to a £1,000 fine and a prison sentence, but the director of the campaign group Silver Voices, said: “There are a hard core who are resisting.”9. Meghan ‘eyes up politics’The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have held a private meeting with one of America’s most powerful state governors, prompting renewed speculation that Meghan is considering launching her own political career. Officials for Gavin Newsom, the Democratic governor of California, confirmed that he had a virtual meeting with Harry and Meghan in October, weeks before Joe Biden was elected president.10. Brady stars in Super BowlTom Brady guided the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a convincing 31-9 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs to extend his record for Super Bowl wins to seven. The BBC says the “evergreen” 43-year-old quarterback helped Tampa Bay become the first team to play a Super Bowl in their own stadium. CNN described Brady’s story as like a “movie script”.the Welsh Conservatives at it again this Time making out the UK Troops Sent to Wales by Westminster is a extra for us When there our own Troops to. So I said this you do under stand that Wales is in the United Kingdom and Is British. so Welsh/British Armed Forces assisting Welsh Government and UK Government what is there Role and Job. its Funny what you See the Welsh Conservatives Talk about the Armed Forces in Wales Considering Since 2010 they have Cut the number of Military Personnel, Military Bases in Wales. and that is before taken in to account that The British Armed Forces, also known as Her Majesty's Armed Forces, are the military services responsible for the defence of the United Kingdom, its overseas territories and the Crown dependencies. They also promote the UK's wider interests, support international peacekeeping efforts and provide humanitarian aid. so not Really Doubling the Number or sending to help wales as a Major good will thing its Her Majesty's Armed Forces acting in one of Her Majesty's Member states of Her Majesty's United Kingdom. and this is before taken in to account that the Candidate works for a MP who in January 2020 found that Wallis had been a co-owner of a 'sugar daddy' dating website, "which offered students financial relationships with wealthy 'sponsors'". Although Wallis initially denied links to the company, Buzzfeed found that he had been a director and shareholder of the site's parent company. FACT It doesn't matter who was in Power in Westminster or Cardiff Bay the H.M Forces would of Been used to assistant the Civil Power for Law and Order and Humanitarian what they have been doing. so Election Time the Welsh Conservatives think they doing us a Favour by Sending our own Armed Forces to help our Civil Power in a Pandemic it there anything these People will not try? after all We in Wales Do also Pay and a proud of our Armed Forces or is it for the Tories any welsh Men or Women who Serve or have served in the UK Forces should be Lucky to do so as they do not see wales as equal to other parts of the UK .#Aroundtheworldtoday​ #Podcast​ #Christmas​ #RealTerryoSUBSCRIBE to our YouTube channel for more videos:​ Follow us on Twitter:​ Like us on Facebook:​ Follow us on Instagram:​ For more content go to​

Terry Talks about The new Rules for wales. So basically in English law it states that you shouldn’t travel outside of it a tear 3 area so all the first minister is doing is putting it into Welsh law so if someone from England is caught in Wales and has come out of a hotspot area they will be fined just like they would if they are stoped in England.

Terry rounds off some of the nxews in the last month.
With in the United kingdom over the last few days there has been one story that has dominated the news cycles of all media outlets that has lead to death threats of religious leaders and even politicians and a government Staff member (Appointed by the PM as a Political Adviser) not a government minister (Elected Official) has to give a statement of his actions. So what am I talking about well Prime Minister Boris Johnsons Chief Adviser Dominic cummings on the and Braking the lockdown Rules now some are saying this is about left or Right or even Brexit and Remain but its not about that what it is really about is Right from Wrong was British people are asking was the lockdown one rule for us and then another rule for them or were we taken for fools.
So over the last few weeks I have found myself being even more angry at the political games being played over the plague that we know as Coronavirus or Covid 19. In the United kingdom with Devolution what is effectively federalisation in all but name if you are seeing this from out side the United Kingdom. We have a Government in Westminster and than 4 Home Countries and then 4 Crown Dependencies and 14 other British Overseas Territories (BOTs) or United Kingdom Overseas Territories (UKOTs), what we have is that when the United Kingdom Government acts in a matter it also speaks for all 21 nations but they only really run England.
