This is a bit of an odd one, covering passport changes since Brexit.

Nina Gurd was told her passport, which expires next February, was not valid for travel to Portugal.

She went to the airport, confident she had more than the required three months before the expiry date which had been extended when she renewed her passport.

But she was told the expiry date was irrelevant, she told the BBC.

"The lady at Bournemouth Airport said it needs to be within 10 years of the issue date," she explained.

New Zealand has the government owned Accident Compensation Corporation that from what I understand at least covers injured parties in road traffic accidents on a mostly no-fault basis, whose funding is made up from fees collected from taxes on petrol/diesel/LPG as well as the local equivalent of VED. I presume that this is part of the reason general motor insurance as we know it is optional...

...the UK doesn't have such an equivalent, broad ranging scheme AIUI. And then you have the situation in some Canadian provinces where motor insurance schemes are run by the government.

That's the sort of figure which belongs on the side of a bus

British universities are facing a brain drain as the row over Brexit in Northern Ireland threatens £250m in research funding from the EU, it has emerged.

The European Research Council (ERC) has written to 98 scientists and academics who were recently approved for €172m (£145m) in grants telling them that if the UK’s associate membership of the €80bn Horizon Europe programme is not ratified they will not be eligible to draw down the money...
