All two strokes to be banned from 1st of January 2017

Following on from a recent directive from the EU commission, that all two stroke motorcycles and scooters were being phased out due to their emissions and fuel economy.
Many motorcycle and scooter developers have already phased out their 2 stroke engine in favour of the modern built 4 stroke and have spent many thousands of pounds developing these to attain the right readings etc.
However, what was never stated until recently was what would happen to the many classic Motorcycles and scooters that are already owned and maintained by enthusiasts. Initially it was said by the EU that they would not be affected and owners can continue to run them until they finally are unable to rebuild them or keep them running. This was thought to be a solution to allow natural phase out of this type of engine, as stock parts would be limited as the years progressed.
However it seems that the ingenuity of owners of these machines, means that this would actually take longer than was originally thought. Many owners are competent mechanics and engineers and those that aren't, know someone who is and who can help. This has made the EU commision realise that they need to bring in a new directive to stop this happening, and have had lengthy meetings with Chris Grayling, Theresa May's current Secretary of state for Transport.
Mr Grayling is on record as saying " These prehistoric motors are causing issues with pollution and damaging wildlife's habitat. We recently bought in a tax to stop pollution within london, and it's now time that we looked at reducing this further by banning these machines completely. Therefore from 1st January 2017, all 2 stroke motorcycles and scooters will be banned from the British and European roads, and all owners of two stroke vehicles will be contacted and asked to scrap their vehicle with immediate effect"
Our reporter spoke to an owner who wished to remain nameless, but who is a member of a scooter riders association and refers to himself as a Garagista.
He said "Once again we have to face another fight to keep our pride and joys alive and on the road. This won't happen as long as we can fight this like we did with the greasers in the 1960's, and the Casuals in the 1980's. If the EU wants a fight, tell them Brighton seafront 1st January 2017, and to bring their mates"
The EU commission were unavailable for a direct quote when we put this to them, but have since released a statement regarding the 1st of January offer. It says " The EU does not, and will not resort to fist fighting on a beach in southern England on the 1 st of any month, let alone January when the temperatures are at a low. Besides we very much doubt that the owners of these machines would turn up, due to their love of alcohol and a party on the 31st of December every year"
UKIP EU MEP Nigel Farage has stepped in and agreed to look into this matter, stating " This won't happen on my watch. This is a British way of life that has been around for 50 years, and the revenue that these riders bring to coastal resorts throughout the summer far outways the damage a few minor scuffles between Mods and Rockers may cause, leave this with me"

Donald Trump: "Anchor babies" aren't American citizens Donald Trump doesn't believe babies born in the United States to undocumented immigrant parents are American citizens. "I don't think they have American citizenship and if you speak to some very, very good lawyers -- and I know some will disagree, but many of them agree with me -- and you're going to find they do not have American citizenship," Trump said Tuesday in an interview with Fox News' Bill O'Reilly. "We have to start a process where we take back our country. Our country is going to hell." Trump claims that those born on U.S. soil to illegal immigrants don't have full citizens' rights. "What happens is they're in Mexico, they're going to have a baby, they move over here for a couple of days, they have the baby," he told O'Reilly. Trump asserted, "Many lawyers are saying that's not the way it is in terms of this," and went on to say, "They are saying it is not going to hold up in court. It will have to be tested but they say it will not hold up in court." The GOP presidential hopeful does not, however, support amending the Constitution to repeal birthright citizenship, saying it would be a "long process." "I think it would take too long," he told Fox News. "I'd much rather find out whether or not anchor babies are citizens because a lot of people don't think they are. We're going to test it out." Trump will begin the process to locate and deport illegal immigrants along with "Anchor Babies" as early as next week. Any immigrant who has illegally overstayed a visa or entered the country illegally, along with any children of illegal immigrants, no matter what age or how long they have resided in the United States, will be deported beginning as early as mid-February.
Two Great White Sharks found swimming in Mississippi River Near Saint Louis, Missouri. While it is not entirely impossible, it is incredibly uncommon for salt water dwelling creatures to stay for lengthy periods of time in fresh water. However, two Great White Sharks have managed to survive the trip and make their way up the Mississippi River somehow. Believed to have started as a mating couple, the two are assumed to have swam the 920 mile journey from the mouth of the Mississippi River that is connected to the Gulf Of Mexico. Officials in Saint Louis have contacted the Missouri Conservation Department and will likely have a team in the river soon to capture the two lost sharks.
