INTERNATIONAL PAPERS, Thursday, 23rd SEPT. 2010: This morning we look at a “quality of life” index in The Guardian which suggests Britain and Ireland have the lowest quality of life in Europe with France being ranked on top… The 16 factors taken into account included hours of sunshine and holiday entitlements. Other stories: General David Petraeus says he won’t be rushed out of Afghanistan, coverage of the Commonwealth Games fiasco and flies that can detect death from ten miles away.
