US tariffs on Scotch whisky can’t be proper: UK PM Boris Johnson


London: UK PM Boris Johnson has said tariffs placed on Scottish malt whisky by the United States “cannot be right” and should be removed. “We will continue to take a very robust line. It cannot be right that US consumers continue to pay over the odds for Scotch (whisky),” Johnson told parliament. “It cannot be right that this discrimination should continue and we will fight it every step of the way,” he said, adding he had already raised the matter with Trump.

Zoo separates parrots after swearing a blue streak

London: Officials in a zoo of the United Kingdom had to separate five foul-mouthed parrots who keepers say were encouraging each other to swear.
