It is vital that we discuss how we eliminate the plastic waste brought to the surface of our collective consciousness in Blue Planet II.
Voters, economic reality and climate change all press for further action. Here’s what we could and should do to make our land even greener and more pleasant.
The Government should back the fastest growing sector of the economy, demand transparency and send clear policy signals.
The President makes a wonderful Bond villain but Russia is merely an ageing, corrupt gas station with nuclear weapons, no longer a Great Power.
The erroneous assumption that hostile states were no longer relevant has rightly been abandoned. Now our Armed Forces need the resources to meet the challenge.

One take on the President is that behind the flamboyant tweeting is a conventional actor, who knows full well that jaw tweet jaw is better than war tweet war.
At a time when austerity continues, we need to be explain that we are not wasting taxpayers’ money on a grand delusion that we can create prosperity.
