Ireland rose so quickly that her people threatened to outstrip the English. The English government drove them to rebellion and achieved the Union by bribery. The Union delivered the death blow to reviving Irish industry.
I am a book-reading, chocolate-eating, blanket-knitting human looking to
meet new people. Maybe you have similar interests, maybe you don’t. As
long as we can find something to talk about, that’s OK. I like talking
about the little things, I want to hear about your day, what project
you’re working on, what your aspirations are. I have a baby daughter who
is the centre of my world, so hopefully you won’t mind hearing a lot
about her. I believe in being gentle, and calm, and kind, so if you need
a shoulder to cry on or someone to pick you up, I’m your girl.
Preferences: I would prefer to talk through email, maybe snail mail eventually.

A million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute and the number will jump another 20% by 2021, creating an environmental crisis some campaigners predict will be as serious as climate change.
New figures obtained by the Guardian reveal the surge in usage of plastic bottles, more than half a trillion of which will be sold annually by the end of the decade.
The demand, equivalent to about 20,000 bottles being bought every second, is driven by an apparently insatiable desire for bottled water and the spread of a western, urbanised “on the go” culture to China and the Asia Pacific region.
More than 480bn plastic drinking bottles were sold in 2016 across the world, up from about 300bn a decade ago. If placed end to end, they would extend more than halfway to the sun. By 2021 this will increase to 583.3bn, according to the most up-to-date estimates from Euromonitor International’s global packaging trends report.
Most plastic bottles used for soft drinks and water are made from polyethylene terephthalate (Pet), which is highly recyclable. But as their use soars across the globe, efforts to collect and recycle the bottles to keep them from polluting the oceans, are failing to keep up.
I’m a non-binary high school student studying French, German and Maths
at A-Level. I also play bass clarinet in my school’s wind band. I like
music, reading and films.
I’m looking for someone to practice French/German with, preferably over email.
Preferences: 16-20 years old only please! No homophobes/transphobes
Lets state it plainly: The Tories are happy to bribe the DUP with over £1 billion of public money to keep them in power but they are unwilling to properly fund and pay the public sector staff (NHS, Police, Fire, etc) who have had a pay freeze for nearly a decade. Disgraceful.
I’ve being saying it for months but the Tories hold this country in contempt.
