News Links

The fastest most accessible news web site (nb no images, no script, no css, no bells and whistles) is without doubt 68k news named after the not so powerful processor that will run it. Not updated by the minute and may be a few hours behind. No silliness about requiring a specific version of a specific browser with only specific settings- this site WORKS.

English newspapers all have a definite political viewpoint, some of them (not linked to here) excessively and unfairly so. Try these:
   CNN   ||    IBTimes via kproxy    ||    The UK Guardian

This is Money has interesting financial news but their various comparison tables have only the top 20 or so which often tend to be the organisations with lower credit ratings or lacking UK based deposit guarantees. Be aware that the UK deposit guarantee scheme is restricted to the registered owner organisation and not trade names - and some of the less strong organisations use many trade names, often not clearly divulged. Often only one or two providers can occupy all of a table given by this web site! Not good comparison tables.
