The UK, like Finland, is wasting insanely huge amounts of money on failed over due projects on ancient technology, instead of pushing future energy and creating innovation and jobs.

Anyone who's UK-based - this petition is worth a moment of your time.
This whole project has been utterly wasteful. The commercial operator is guaranteed a price roughly treble the normal wholesale price for energy, and there are no guarantees in return about when it will start operating, or about its performance when it does start.
The project was supposed to cost £6.1 billion, and it has already cost £37 billion, is 8 years overdue, and construction hasn't even started! And the two plants of this design which are under construction, one in France and one in Finland, have terrible problems and may never work properly or safely.
Let's put pressure on the government to back down from this disastrous deal and back investment in renewable energy, the cost of which is falling rather than rising, instead.

'Maybe the #Brits are just having us on': the world reacts to #Boris Johnson as foreign minister | The Guardian
However, his track record when it comes to interacting with other cultures is patchy to say the least, and politicians around the world have been slightly less than excited by the prospect of working with a man who once wrote a poem about the Turkish president having sex with a goat.
The #UK, continuing to provide humour to the world.

New #uk PM; not elected, but the unelected Queen is OK with it. Thank goodness we're leaving that "undemocratic" EU. Irony meter and all.

Britain's Completely Batshit Week Since #Brexit Explained
This has to be the best go through of the last week so far. Funny story if this was TV. Kinda explaines well too why Farage is staying on as MP.. The end will probably be just a lot of nothing happening at all and the public being left wondering "wtf did this just happen or was it a comedy show on TV".

Entire country decides to leave things half-finished and f**k off
The actions of Nigel Farage, Boris Johnson and Chris Evans have led the nation to conclude that if something involves hassle then suddenly giving up without warning is the right thing to do.

Reality Check: Have MEPs done 'proper jobs'? - BBC News
As one of our own ministers in Finland said - it's OK to lie as much as you like! If it's a lie, the media will correct it, maybe. Because speaking the truth is not the point of being a politician, it's just speaking any shit you like and people can decide whether to buy it or not.
The people of #UK bought the lies of this shit face idiot for sure.

Another broken promise from the #Leave campaign. A promise they made not even being able to guarantee it - and people still bought it lol.
