War surgeon Sir Archibald McIndoe and his ‘Guinea Pigs’ honoured

North Korea missile reach shows need for Trident nuclear deterrent – PM

David Cameron renews call for Trident replacement by saying a deterrent system is ‘best insurance against nuclear blackmail’ David Cameron said on Thursday that Britain would be foolish to abandon an independent nuclear deterrent on the scale of Trident, pointing to the threat posed by North Korea, and other unstable regimes. Cameron made his remarks (video)after visiting submarine HMS Victorious, one of the vessels that carry the Trident missile, as it returned from its 100th patrol – though his warning that North Korea posed a direct threat to Britain was later challenged by senior defence figures. The prime minister’s renewed backing for a like-for-like replacement for Trident appeared to be aimed at the Lib Dems and the Scottish nationalists.

Where’s the real threat here – Kim Jong-un or Trident? | Simon Jenkins

What we should be scared of is not the North Korean’s belicosity but how it’s being used to subvert domestic politics in the west The enemy is coming. Declare war, dive for Cobra , hide the silver, lock up your daughters. A grateful nation cheers on its leader and saviour, Kim Jong-Cam, as he races north to prepare his war machines for battle.

Franchisees choose award-winning franchise Mac Tools

Buying a franchise allows you to start your own business whilst also benefiting from the support, marketing activities and experience of an established brand. However, finding a franchise that not only suits your skills but also provides great support can be daunting; Colin Childs and Phil Brown have found theirs in Mac Tools and have taken to the road in January 2013.

Mac Tools is part of Stanley Black & Decker, an $11+ billion global organisation employing over 30,000 people worldwide and owner of the world famous Stanley Black & Decker, Britool Expert, Facom and DeWalt brands.

Colin and Phil are now part of a network of over 100 trusted UK franchisees who distribute professional tools to customers such as car dealerships, automotive repair shops, manufacturing units, and engineering companies. The Mac Tools network is a big community and their continuous efforts to improve the business were rewarded as they won the Best Overall Marketing Campaign Award at The Franchise Marketing Awards (FMA) two weeks ago, despite strong competition from fellow nominees, like Driver
Hire, Baskin-Robbins and Aspray.

Phil had been an automotive technician for nine years when he decided that it was time to become his own boss. The Mac Tools quality and service convinced him to run his own Mac Tools franchise in Swindon. “I used to be a technician and found out about the Mac Tools franchise through our Mac Tools distributor. The first few weeks on the road have been hard work but I am enjoying it, it’s been a real eye opener,” says Phil.

Colin was an automotive sales manager for eight years and is now distributing Mac Tools products in Lowestoft. “I am now 43 years old and I have worked in the motor trade industry as a sales manager for many years. I felt the time was right for me to take greater control over my own future. I chose the MacTools franchise because it gives me the right balance between income and leisure time,” explains Colin.
