Review of the week - from an all new anti-Brexit super group to Kim Kardashian breaking the internet, again
This week a new super group has been formed in opposition to hard Brexit in a bid to get the public's voice heard on the final deal.
The group, headed by Labour MP Chuka Umunna, has the modest aim of uniting the views of all those who have opposed Brexit from the outset, so they can come together with a cohesive plan. This will probably involve some form of second referendum, says Umunna. Yawn.
The group includes Tory mutineer Anna Sourby, the Green party's Caroline Lucas and Lib Dem MP Jo Swinson. It also unites a whopping 500,000 members of pro-European groups including Open Britain.
A female London fire chief has received hate mail after encouraging the use of 'Firefighter Sam' instead of 'Fireman Sam'. Outrageous.
Head of the London Fire Brigade, Dany Coton, said she was “bombarded” with abuse and had hate mail sent to her workplace after launching a campaign to encourage people to refer to 'firefighters' rather than 'firemen'.
She said the campaign had been about allowing both boys and girls to follow whatever path they wanted and the abuse had made her want to hide away in a cave.
Canada's national anthem is set to become gender neutral thanks to pressure from a group of prominent Canadian women including author Margaret Atwood.
Senators have passed legislation which will change the second line of the anthem from “in all thy sons command” to “in all of us command”.
Senator Francis Lankin said: “This may be small – it's about two words – but it's huge in terms of one of our major national symbols. It's inclusivity and I'm proud.”
A celebrated New Zealand gannet has died amongst the concrete birds that were his only friends. Nigel was lured to the uninhabited Mana Island in a bid to establish a breeding colony there.
Conservationists set up concrete gannets and played gannet calls via solar powered speakers to entice real ones.
Nigel was the first to arrive in 2013 and remained there alone until just three weeks ago when he was joined by three real life gannets. Unfortunately he was unable to befriend them and soon after died. His body was found surrounded by his concrete friends.
Meghan Markle has caused shock waves by turning up to her first nighttime event with her fiancé Prince Harry in a suit.
Royal correspondents have concluded it was “a bit of a let down” after Meghan's future sister-in-law Kate Middleton wore an Alexander McQueen gown to a dinner at the royal place in Oslo earlier in the week.
Finally, Kim Kardashian has broken the internet again, and at the time of going to press, had still not apologised.
It comes after her enterprising husband Kanye West came up with a cunning publicity stunt to promote his latest fashion collection 'Yeezy Season 6'.
Just as he recruited paparazzi to follow Kim around in December in the clothes he designed, he hired the paps again, but this time to follow around other willing celebrities, togged out to look just like Kim.
These celebrities, including Paris Hilton, were then instructed to do as Kim did, and upload their paparazzi shots onto instagram. Thus a new-style digital look book has been born. Kayne West is a genius. Meanwhile BT Internet engineers are run ragged.
