Think of iconic Finnish tunes and you’ll likely choose Sandstorm by Darude, Freestyler by Bomfunk MC’s or In the Shadows by The Rasmus. However, you’re very unlikely to have heard them played on the piano. That will change once you check out the social media channels of Mindaugas Neverovas.
Despite its vast size, much of Finland is very similar. Drive from Helsinki to Lapland and for the entire 15 hours, you're likely to see much the same scenery, forests and lakes. However, there are some wonderful ways that parts of Finland are very different from each other. To see for yourself check out these wonderful maps, courtesy of Reddit.
It's well documented how much the British right-wing press has dedicated itself to scaremongering and anti-EU propaganda in the last 45 years. What is less well known is the sheer scale of this endless stream of lies...until now
It looks increasingly likely that Boris Johnson will waltz into 10 Downing street thanks to the votes of 300 odd MPS and mere 160 000 Conservative members with an average age of 55. Needless to say, many people have questioned the democratic legitimacy of this, not least Boris Johnson himself.
Nigel Farage took his dodgily-funded, manifesto-less Brexit "Party" to Wales this week. There he met BBC Cymru Wales’ political correspondent Arwyn Jones who asked him one question about Brexit. It didn't go well.
Creator of recording-breaking Revoke Article 50 petition reveals that she's been subject to a torrent of online abuse from Leavers and three telephoned death threats.
Leavers are famed for the fanatical way in which they deny facts if those facts don't support their fairytale vision of the future. To highlight these amazing delusions some talented wit has penned a beautiful image of March 29th 2019 from their perspective. Anonymous author, we salute you!
As the UK gets ever closer to committing "national suicide" — with companies deserting in droves, medicine and food being stockpiled and rich Leavers buying themselves EU citizenship — it's easy to forget how ludicrous this Tory fiasco has been from the beginning. Happily, an anonymous writer has crafted a short, yet hilarious history to put it all into perspective. So, if you're still able to sit comfortably, despite impending disaster, let's begin.
Despite what Theresa May says, the facts don't lie. EU immigration has been hugely beneificial to the UK. Research from University College London shows European migrants pay in more in taxes than they take out in state benefits. That contribution – valued at £2bn a year – is helped fuel Britain’s economic growth over the last decade. Arek Widawski is one of these people.
While we all know Theresa May is not a fan of a people's vote, that hasn't stopped her appealing to the people of the UK with a Brexit begging letter. Needless to say her fanciful aim of uniting the nation around her disastrous policy has been met far from favourably. But perhaps the best reply we have seen so far come from veteran folk singer Mike Harding.
