Sunday Newsviews from the ArchPlonker to Prostate risk

Sundays continue archbishop row

Newspapers

Criticism continues in the press for Dr Rowan Williams over his remarks about the adoption in the UK of aspects of Sharia law.The Sunday Telegraph reports that some senior religious leaders claim Sharia law and multiculturalism are “disastrous” and socially divisive.

According to the Independent on Sunday Dr Williams is facing calls for resignation from within his own church.

The News of the World says he is out of tune with his Church and his country.

Veteran victory

The Sunday Mirror says Britain’s nuclear test veterans have won a victory more than 50 years after being exposed to radiation.

The Defence Minister, Derek Twigg, has reportedly agreed in principle to fund an independent study into their health and that of their children and grandchildren.

The Sunday Times says scientists are to offer DNA tests to show men if they are at risk of prostate cancer.

This move, the paper says, could save thousands of lives.

Blind British children are to be taught a pioneering bat-style echolocation technique to visualise their surroundings, the paper also says.

It suggests the children learn how to build up detailed images of the world by clicking their tongue.

They then interpret the sound as it echoes back.
