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 Monday 18 March, Barnes Primary had the privilege of having our local MP Zac Goldsmith coming to visit. Zac gave us a little speech on climate change and how it will effect the whole wide world. He also told us that a few years ago all the politicians in the world met in Paris to discuss climate change and to stop the world from reaching 2 degrees hotter but now they want to make sure the world doesn't reach 1.5 degrees. The only problem is that all the politicians don't care about reaching 1.5 degrees, any more only 2 degrees. When he was done we were allowed to ask questions and this is what Jack Fernie asked Zac: "Zac, which do you think is more important Brexit or climate change?". Zac replied: "There is no doubt in my mind that climate change is more important than Brexit".

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.
