After a difficult year for Britain, with so much news coverage devoted to Brexit, it was a nice relief to see some positive news in the form of the birth of Baby Sussex (who's now known as Archie). He is the son of Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, and was born at 5:26 on the 6th May in London's Portland Hospital. His full name is Archie Harrison Mountbatten - Windsor. The couple shared the news on Instagram with an image of Queen Elizabeth and Megan's mother Doria Ragland, meeting their newest great - grandson. BBC royal correspondent Jonny Dymond said there was a "strong indication" that Archie won't be brought up as a formal 'royal'. Harry and Meghan Markle have made it very clear  that they plan to break tradition and raise their son away from the spotlight, so as to give him the most ‘normal’ upbringing possible, possibly even in South Africa, where Harry's uncle, the Earl of Spencer, lives.

Sadly a girl has died very recently after already having a problem with her lungs. Ella Kissi-Debrah was nine when she died on 4th July 2018. She died because of an asthma attack which her family and scientists believe had something to do with pollution. Videos show she already had problems with her breathing. Ella was shown in a video after getting out of a swimming pool. She was really struggling and was breathing very heavily. She was also breathing in pollution when ever she went out. An inquest is going to be held to decide if the pollution was to blame. I feel sorry for Ella because her tragic death wasn't even her fault. Pollution isn't a new problem. A long time ago, in the Victorian times, the streets of London were filled with air pollution known as smog.

On Wednesday 27th February, almost a month to the day from the UK's scheduled departure from the European Union (Brexit), our Newsnuggets' Club at St Osmund's Primary School in Barnes, South West London took to the streets. We conducted a very small, anonymous poll (we only had 30 minutes) in order to find out what the general public thought about their options on whether or how to leave the EU, today. This coincided with the Labour Party's pledge that it was prepared to back another EU referendum to prevent a "damaging Tory Brexit". Barnes is part of the Borough of Richmond, which backed the Remain Campaign by 65%. We interviewed a total of 12 people, across all demographics. In bold are the 3 questions we asked and the yes/no percentage of their answers. Did you vote Leave or Remain in the 2016 Referedum? Leave : 25% Remain : 75 % Do you think we should leave the EU with No Deal? Yes, just get on with it: 20% No : it would be very damaging for the economy: 70% Not sure : 10% Knowing what you know 2 years on, would you want a second Referendum? Yes: 70 % No, we must get on with it : 30% It was fascinating to see that some of those who voted to Leave in 2016 would now welcome a second referendum. It was also interesting that some who voted to Remain, don't want any further delay and just want to government to reach a deal and get on with their promise. On a national level, the survey by polling firm YouGov conducted that same week showed that if a referendum were held immediately, 46 percent would vote to remain, 39 percent would vote to leave, and the rest either did not know, would not vote, or refused to answer the question.   By : The St Osmund's Team

It is always better no deal than a bad deal. Isn't that right?     According to the vote to leave the European Union, we will have to leave the European Union in March 2019. With three months and counting until Britain leaves the EU, both sides want an exit agreement. But they still can't settle on one key point: how to keep the border free and open between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. They have not found a solution for what to do (apparently they're some of the best politicians in the world). On Saturday the  twentieth of October there was a march to Parliament Square. Just after noon on Saturday at Green Park in central London, the announcer had only one message. There I was among the shuffling crowds that packed the roads and thronged the pavements. The UK economic and political landscape has been dominated by BREXIT over the past two and years. Is it worth it? If it looks like it's going to leave us all worse off, shouldn't we have the chance to give our opinion on BREXIT? Especially after many people have changed their minds. Theresa May says she is taking the right decisions for Britain. Really? Some people have said that we may need a new prime minister to get BREXIT but no one knows if it is true.
