Rail fares are going up again, and people are furious

Rail disruption has become in the least, normal these days, thanks to delays and own price hikes in the quest to get a season pass for the service itself. This week,  Transportation minister Patrick Mcloughlin took to Birmingham Street to defend a rise in rail fares that some say are 'unneeded' and overzealous'.

News Brief: London cracking down on illicit money laundering

LONDON -- Ever heard of a UWO? Good, neither have we until about 10 minutes ago.   In January, British authorities launched Unexplained Wealth Orders (which in laments terms, allows the government to know where money came from if a property is worth more than 50,000 GBP). This is where it gets interesting. According to prosecutors, two particular buildings in southeast England and  London are in the sights of officials after they have determined the buildings to likely be owned by overseas governments.   Officials wouldn't quite  reiterate what they meant by that, but, did reveal that information gathered by officials indicates that both buildings may be owned by Western officials. Both buildings are worth an estimated 22m GBP.
