How Big Oil misled the public into believing plastic would be recycled

Governments should be banning plastic packaging for new products and giving companies a few years to phase it out for existing products.

There should be a list of safe and acceptable materials that can be used for packaging and that's it.

"Ghosts" season 2 trailer

The first season was really good, not sure this trailer does the show justice but glad to see a second season is on the way.

Coronavirus: England and Wales' contact-tracing app gets launch date

Typical. Great news, if they can deliver. It's a shame we couldn't have this app and system in place for the summer when the government were actively encouraging us to mix which has obviously lead to rise in cases and deaths from COVID.

Jeff Bezos could write every child born in America this year a $24,000 check and still be as rich as before Covid.

Could I make it as a CEO of a large corporation? Could I look on as my employees worked for next to nothing while I racked up unimaginable wealth?

Better late than never, like here in the UK where the we haven't heard anything since June.

The Big Brexit Short

More infuriating details about Brexit. Not long until we'll be dragged out of the EU now and it increasingly looks like it will be done without a deal in place and even in a way that will break international agreements.

Certainly explains this photo.
