It's okay. At least you are trying to do smth with the problem. But since majority of people don't really care about it can't be helped until something terrible and shocking will happen due to people's indifference.

The whole point is when something terrible happens, it will be too late — at that point — whatever we do, even if we start doing everything right, the changes in the environment that already happened would be impossible to reverse. But yeah, the UK aims to recycle all of its plastic waste within the next four years and the unrecyclable waste will be banned. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/reducing-pl... They are doing the same in Venice by the way.

We are having this fight at the moment — politically — aimed by some desperate Remainers to harm Boris Johnson amid him being number one in the Tory Leadership Campaign, cause he is a Hard Brexiteer and said the UK is coming out of the EU with or without a deal by the 31st of October. They are trying to take him to court over his alleged lying that the money saved by leaving the EU — some of it — 350 million quid would go to the NHS. He said that when he was leading the Leave Campaign prior to the referendum. The case is totally bogus. But they are trying to harm his reputation. So the Telegraph is launching a similar smear campaign against the Remainer (Marcus Ball) who is trying to take Boris to court.

I know it all sounds ultra boring to you, but this whole Brexit thing kind of got a second wind after Theresa's announcement of departure, cause with her refusing to go for so long it looked like Brexit was getting kicked into the long grass.

kick something into the long grass. BRITISH, JOURNALISM. If someone kicks an idea or plan into the long grass, they refuse to deal with it immediately, often because it will create problems for them. There were suggestions this week that the Government intends to kick the proposals into the long grass.

It's not boring boring, it's like news about Ukraine for me. I hear them on daily basis. And there is also a second wind there (Zelenski).

But I'm afraid to be too optimistic about Brexit and Ukrainian conflict.

You know if your officials changed the date of Brexit once, they can do it again.

Zelenski said he is for peaceful solution of the conflict, but Kolomoisky and other influential figures in Ukrainian politics might not agree with him.

Don't be silly, what are you on about? Zelenski and Brexit are a totally different kettle of fish. Brexit is an extremely complex issue, I tried to explain it to you numerous times, but you don't seem to get it, you still keep simplifying it way too much. First of all, the UK has been an EU member for over 40 years. We have generations of people who grew up not knowing any different. Secondly, of course our officials would prefer not to just crash out, but find some sort of an amicable solution with the EU, they are still our biggest trading partner. And on top of that — there is an eternal fight going on within the establishment as to what that solution should be. There is a huge debate going on. The reason the Brexiteers got this second wind is partially down to the total inflexibility and dictatorial approach the EU has demonstrated so far. Of course — if need be, the people here will take the hard decision to crash out of the EU, but their desire to avoid it is totally understandable. I understand your scepticisms, but you judge this country by your own. We do not have some powerful officials, who have "the sun shining out of their asses" (like you do in your country) and who can do whatever they like and be approved by the people regardless. It is not like this here at all.

Fantastic, good for her. I still insist that the professional sports are not good for anyone in the long run. You are entitled to your opinion to think otherwise, it is totally fine by me.

Donald Trump backs Boris Johnson to be the next Prime Minister as Nigel Farage barred from meeting President

Donald Trump has backed Boris Johnson to be the next Prime Minister while Nigel Farage said he has been «banned» from meeting the US president.
Mr Trump, who is visiting the UK for a three-day state visit on Monday, said he thinks the former foreign secretary would be «excellent» as a successor to Theresa May.
Speaking to the Sun, Mr Trump said: «It's something that I find very interesting.
«I actually have studied it very hard. I know the different players.

«But I think Boris would do a very good job. I think he would be excellent.»
The President added: «I like him. I have always liked him. I don't know that he is going to be chosen, but I think he is a very good guy, a very talented person.
«He has been very positive about me and our country.»
Mr Trump also said other candidates have approached him in a bid to secure his endorsement.
He said: «Other people have asked me for an endorsement too. I have been asked for endorsements».
He added: «I could help anybody if I endorse them. I mean, we've had endorsement where they have gone up for 40, 50 points at a shot.

«Now that is here, but I understand over there would be a great endorsement.»
He also said he liked Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, but Environment Secretary Michael Gove had been wrong to apparently criticise him over Iran.
The President said the UK and US would benefit from pressure on the Middle Eastern nation so Mr Gove «should be all for that».
Mr Trump has previously spoken of his admiration for Mr Johnson and Brexit Party leader Mr Farage.
The Telegraph reports that senior White House officials are preparing for a meeting between Mr Trump and Mr Johnson.
Mr Farage, however, said he has been «banned» from meeting Mr Trump during his visit.
Speaking to the Daily Express, Mr Farage said Mr Trump's entourage had been told by No 10 not to meet him.
Mr Farage said: «Isn't that absolutely bizarre? Doesn't it sum up why British politics needs to change?»

I completely agree with you on that. It's not just your opinion, it is a well-known fact that professional sports are not good for anyone in the long run. My point is skaters' careers are usually very short but at least they live like ordinary people after their career is over, some of them take part in the shows at the age of 40+. May be it could be different if their career was longer. You know it is always sad for a fan when a favorite skater retires. But at least you know that they won't spend a life of a disabled person afterwards.

Probably you got me wrong here. I wasn't trying to prove that Zelensky appearance on the political scene is as massive as Brexit. Not at all. He is just another puppet nothing more.
But Poroshenko's defeat was like a breath of fresh wind, many people in Ukraine believe Zelensky will improve Ukraine-Russia relations. I'm skeptical about it.

Iet's wait and see, will they move the date of Brexit again
