20 years after the Cold War, NATO still has 200 US nukes in Europe. It’s time we got the world back on track to zero nuclear weapons.As a founding member of the board of Global Zero, an international movement aiming for a world without nukes, we have done a lot of research into the nuclear weapon issue. The evidence is overwhelming that nukes are dangerous, useless and expensive. What’s more, by removing nukes from Europe we could clear the road for the US and Russia to agree on unpr

Congratulations to Newcastle United for such a brilliant season.
It is a privilege to sponsor the club with Virgin Money, and it's great to see the team bring so much joy to the fans in the north east of England and around the world.
