Tory win leaves majority of London voters worried
Boris confirms that the UK will be leaving the EU by January 31st 2020 after a landslide 80 seat majority.
The Conservatives snagging a win once more has caused a lot of heartache across the country; especially for the younger generation who for most, has been the first time they were ever able to vote.
The Conservatives won with a majority, with their wins in 326 constituencies. Spreading a cloud of worry upon those who are already struggling in life. Many worry that the resuming of a Tory run government, will cause utter destruction to an already crumbling economy.
Yesterday was marked in history as the turn out of young people turning up to vote was astonishing. Young people were given a voice and they didn’t and won’t hesitate to use it.
Students lined up in miserable weather to vote, in hopes of a better and brighter future.
We got some opinions from younger people and mothers, who are worried about the outcome of yesterdays votes.
The students at Lambeth college don’t sound very hopeful for the future, describing the results as ” A horrible choice” the students were very adamant that Boris would put an end to the NHS, and that leaves many unsettled, uneasy and worried.
All we can do is stand united and continue to fight for a better future, a greener and reliable future with a stronger economy for us and the generation to come.
Policy Guide: Environment
We constantly hear that we need to save planet earth, and that our home is under threat due to our destructive way of life; but we can only do so much. We need our government to be on the same page.
So what solutions do our political parties have for these issues?
Lib Dems- The lib Dems have made big promises in terms of our environment and climate change. A major one is that they plan on reducing net greenhouse gas to zero by the 2045. Tackle the climate emergency by generating 80% of our electricity from renewable sources by 2030 and insulating all low-income homes by 2025.
If climate change doesn’t interest you, than maybe the promise of a lower energy bill will peak your interest. The Lib Dems plan on implementing an emergency ten-year programme in which they will reduce energy consumption from all buildings; therefore cutting emissions and energy bills and ending fuel poverty.
They will be investing over £6 billion a year on home insulation and zero-carbon heating by the fifth year of the Parliament. This will mostly be in the benefit of low income homes, which have suffered with the cold more than others, due to homes with poor insulation.
Greens- The green party have promised to have new green homes, green transport and have even gone as far as making promises of new green jobs. They say that it will get us on track to reduce the UK’s carbon emissions to net zero by 2030, also providing new opportunities for everyone; equaling in happier more secure lives. This will be a combined investment of more than £100 billion a year in their Green New Deal.
The greens plan on replacing fossil fuels with more reliable, renewable fuels. They also plan on implementing heating upgrades in a million homes a year.
Their goal is to plant 700 million trees and supporting the healthy and sustainable food system, which will ultimately be beneficial for all of us
The greens would also like to tackle our major poverty problem by creating a universal basic income, which will be paid to all UK residents in order to give everyone some financial security.
Labour– Labour has made promises to review and improve protected area designations, from National Parks to local nature reserves and urban green spaces, in their manifesto.
They have said that they want to have cut at least half of our global emissions by 2030, and reduce the UKs carbon emission to zero by 2030, in hopes of achieving a net-zero economy.
They will introduce a Climate and Environment Emergency Bill setting out in law robust, binding new standards for decarbonization, nature recovery, environmental quality and habitats and species protection. They will aim to maintain and continuously improve the existing EU standards of environmental regulation.
Conservatives- The conservatives have made promises of making Britain carbon free by 2050, to invest in clean energy solutions and green infrastructures, in order to reduce carbon emissions and have a pollution free environment.

The death of a Hollywood icon
97-year-old Hollywood Icon, Doris Day died in her home in Carmel Valley(California) yesterday morning; due to a health downturn.
Up until recently Doris Day had been in good health. The Doris day animal foundation recently commented on Doris’s health.
“Day had been in excellent physical health for her age, until recently contracting a serious case of pneumonia, resulting in her death.
“She was surrounded by a few close friends as she passed.”
Doris’s death has saddened many people but it’s good to know she was surrounded by the people she loved in her time of passing.
Doris had just celebrated her 97th birthday on April 3rd with her closest friends. Close to 300 fans gathered in Carmel Valley in celebration for her birthday last month.
The Hollywood actress told reporters that she had spent her birthday with ” Dear old friends” in the town.
Doris was known to have a small group of companions who she would have regular quiet dinners with, which was said that she enjoyed.
Doris had been an active actress and singer for around 50 years, enjoying her time on the screen. She stared in many great films like Calamity Jane and Pillow Talk and a 1956 major film hit ”Que sera,sera” rising to fame in a rapid rate.
She was also very well known for her song sentimental Journey which held #1 position on Billboard for over two months in 1945.
Although Doris had four failed marriages, the third one was one of the worst out of all four. Forcing day to drop out of Hollywood, after her third husband took her $20million fortune, not forgetting to leave her in an unforgiving $500,000 debt.
The death of her only child, Terry Melcher in 2005, was another tragedy that Doris had to face. Despite that she tried to live her life to the fullest and enjoyed it the best she could; after everything she had to face.
Even though Doris day has now passed, we can’t deny that she marked her place in history, securing her stone in the Hollywood walk of fame for eternity.

Use your fingers to apply your SPF all over your skin, paying more attention if you have dry spots on your skin.
(This step is optional) Apply your cc cream using a brush or a beauty blender, the choice is yours. a brush is preferred as it helps the application of cc cream have an even layer, extending down to the neck and ears with soft brush strokes.

Teens choose thrift stores over outlets
Teens prefer to shop and thrift stores instead of outlets, when keeping up with trends.
In recent years thrifting has no longer been kept as a dirty secret and the stigma attached to buying old clothes is slowly disappearing.
It’s become ‘trendy’ to go thrifting with friends or on your own, trying to find hidden gems in someone else’s trash.
Thrifters have explained that ‘ Thrifting is a cheaper way to keep up with trends, without spending hundreds every time something new hits the shelves.” – unknown thrifter at OXFAM.
Millennials are changing the negative stigma of thrifting into a positive one, making sure to point out that there’s always a few hidden gems, even designer items for not even a fraction of the items original price.
According to Thredups fashion resale report, millennials are the generations that thrifts the most but are the generation that also waste the most clothes.
Even though millennials throw away the most clothes they are the generation with the most eco-conscious habits.
77% of millennials prefer to buy from eco friendly brands when purchasing items, and are more likely to switch to thrifting if it involves saving the environment
Millennials tend to impulse bye and therefore only wearing a clothing item once to maybe up to five times.
They have found a way to lessen their waste with clothes, and even save themselves some money while at it.
Thredup had found out that if you thrifted for a whole year then you’d approximately save yourself around £2,420.
Vogue editor Emily Fara believes “fashion is the second-most polluting industry in the world, surpassed only by petroleum.”
Thredup did farther investigation and they came to a conclusion that a piece of clothings life extends to a further 2.2 years if it’s thrifted which amazingly reduces its carbon print by 73 percent if sold second hand.
So if next time a new trend appears in fashion thing twice and go to a thrift store to purchase it instead. Be eco friendly and save yourself a couple of pounds while you’re at it.
