Ranvir's blog: Brakes on Brexit?

GMB's Political Editor Ranvir Singh writes:

So, if you know anyone who's been divorced - it can be messy. You make the decision you want out but then it can be expensive and full of sometimes painful compromises.
The vote in the commons was the agreement that the marriage is over, but the next two weeks in the House of Lords, is the conversation with your lawyer - who you argue with over what you want from the divorce versus what your lawyer thinks is realistic.

Prisoner Charles Bronson’s fiancée admits: 'I’m taking a huge risk'

He’s a gentle giant and he is a gentleman

– Paula Williamson speaks on Charles Bronson

The nation wants to know - what made Paula Williamson fall in love with Britain’s most notorious prisoner Charles Bronson?

The former Emmerdale and Coronation Street actress is now engaged to Charles and in an exclusive interview with Good Morning Britain, she admitted she’s taking a “huge risk” marrying him. But she insists the relationship is the “real deal”.

When speaking on whether she’s frightened of him, Paula responded: “No, I’m not frightened at all. Charlie – and this may seem completely bizarre to many people – he’s a gentle giant".

Paula and Charles are due to be married but Paula admitted that they’re unsure when the ceremony will take place. She said: “We don’t know – sooner rather than later. We’ll get married in prison, within the prison chapel, depending on where he is at that point".

Watch the full interview above.

  3. The NHS is at "breaking point", with a decline in the number of hospital beds leading to delays and cancelled operations, the British Medical Association warned. Analysis by the BMA found the number of overnight beds in English hospitals fell by a fifth between 2006/7 and 2015/16. The report found that in the first week of January this year, almost three-quarters of trusts had a bed occupancy rate of 95% on at least one day.
