politicians battle it out to become next prime minister

On 18 June, a second round of votes was held in the contest to find the next Conservative Party leader and UK Prime Minister. This reduced the number of candidates down to five men. Why is there a leadership contest? Theresa May stepped down as Conservative leader on 7 June, but will remain Prime Minister until a new party leader is chosen. She was forced to resign because her party was unhappy with the way she was handling Brexit. Brexit is the word for the UK leaving the European Union (EU), an organisation of 28 European countries that trade together and follow the same rules. The UK is due to leave the EU on 31 October. May tried three times to pass her Brexit plan through Parliament, but it was defeated. How does…

what about the climate?

During the BBC debate, Erin, a 15-year-old climate campaigner from Glasgow, asked the candidates if they would reduce carbon emissions to zero by 2025. Carbon emissions are partly responsible for climate change. They are produced when fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas are burnt. The leaders said they would stick to the target the Government has set of cutting carbon emissions to zero by 2050. “Climate change isn’t an issue of tomorrow, it’s an issue of today,” Erin told the MPs.…

millions join protests in hong kong

Almost two million people took to the streets of Hong Kong on 15 June as protests continued over a planned change to the region’s laws. Activists spoke out against a new rule that would make it easier for suspected criminals to face trial in mainland China. Hong Kong is part of China but has a separate political and legal system from the rest of the country – something known as the “one country, two systems” arrangement. Currently, anyone living in Hong Kong cannot be extradited (handed over to face legal charges) to mainland China. The planned extradition bill would allow people accused of crimes to be sent to other parts of China to face trial. Protesters say the Chinese government would use the bill to arrest and punish its opponents. The protesters,…

froome recovering after major bike crash

Chris Froome, the British cyclist who has won the Tour de France four times, has thanked people for their support after he suffered a serious crash on 12 June. The cyclist was practising one of the stages of a race called the Critérium du Dauphiné in France, when he took his hand off his handlebars to blow his nose. Froome was riding at around 37mph when it is thought a gust of wind knocked him off balance and he slammed into a wall. Froome broke several bones and damaged his neck. He was taken to hospital by helicopter and is now recovering. It is expected to take six months before he will be riding again, so he will miss this year’s Tour de France in July. From his bed in University…

thousands evacuated after lincolnshire drenched by rain

Around 1,000 people have been moved to safety in Lincolnshire, a county in eastern England, after the River Steeping burst its banks. High-pressure pumps had to be used to lower the water level in the town of Wainfleet, where houses and streets flooded. What caused the flooding? Heavy rainfall between 10 and 12 June meant the River Steeping began to overflow, sending water into Wainfleet. Roughly as much rain fell in two days as normally falls in two months. Residents in about 600 homes were asked to leave for their own safety and the emergency services were sent to help. Those who remained were told to avoid using washing machines, showers and toilets, because this would make the problem worse. What was done to tackle the problem? Helicopters from the Royal Air Force (RAF)…
