SharkSharks have been much in the news recently following the attacks at Sharm El Sheikh. However, new research has indicated that sharks may be colour blind according to The Los Angeles Times.

After all, most shark attacks are thought to be the result of curiosity on the part of a shark that has been attracted to an unusual stimulus, rather than some premeditated ambush.” READ MORE

Good to see Michael Schwarz defending the green protesters in Nottingham Crown Court today.  He defended me in 1999 when I was arrested at Liverpool docks in a protest over GM. Greenpeace and other green organisations are right to fear being infiltrated by police informers like Mark Kennedy. When I worked there we had in place procedures to stop this but the police were still regularly tipped off about actions.
