The report also claims the UK could save £1.7 billion if it was outside the EU, equivalent to “£22 per person.”

Jonathan Lindsell, who authored the report, also argued the UK could maintain its influence in Europe without being an EU member, if its trading position was stronger.

One hundred and ninety-eight pilot whales have been stranded on a 6-kilometer beach in New Zealand, and their only hope is a rescue effort with the rising tide, local conservation officials reported.

Farewell Spit of the Golden Bay, on New Zealand’s South Island, is a renowned trap for marine mammals, with at least eight strandings in the past decade, and over 50 whales found there near their death bed on Friday, while nearly 200 got trapped in shallow water, Radio New Zealand reported.

“Re-floating stranded whales is a difficult and potentially dangerous job, so it’s important we have the right people on the ground tonight trying to get these whales back to safety,” the Department of Conservation’s (DoC) manager Andrew Lamason said in a statement. “Community group Project Jonah has 140 volunteers in the Golden Bay area who are trained to do this and we’re working alongside them.”

Above The Law? UK Govt Attempts To Block Torture, Rendition Lawsuit – 13 February 2015

RT logoGovernment lawyers are arguing in Britain’s Court of Appeal that the case of a Pakistani man who claims he suffered brutal torture at the hands of British and American troops should not be heard in a court of law.

Yunus Rahmatullah claims he was tortured for a decade following his capture by UK Special Forces in Iraq, and his subsequent handover to American soldiers in Afghanistan.

Lawyers from legal charity Reprieve are representing the 32-year-old. The charity says he was kidnapped in Iraq by British forces, tortured and detained in a notorious Abu Ghraib detention facility, and subsequently taken to Afghanistan by American officials.Following a decade of captivity and abuse, Rahmatullah was eventually freed in 2014.

The average dock worker, according to Zero Hedge, makes about $145,000 per year plus some $80,000 per year in benefits, but apparently their overtime pay is insufficient, which has led to widespread strikes at the nation’s busiest ports in Los Angeles and Long Beach.
