This post discusses the challenges facing the Lithium ion battery market as exponential growth will produce a huge volume of batteries which have reached their end of life. These batteries must be recycled. To achieve this, governments and the private sector must work to improve current battery recycling infrastructure.

The U.K. will plunge into recession if it leaves the European Union without a divorce deal, with the pound plunging in value and the economy shrinking by 2% in a year, Britain’s official economic watchdog said Thursday. The Office for Budget Responsibility made its assessment as chances of an economically disruptive no-deal Brexit appear to […]

Who would have guessed it? (Just about everybody with a pulse, and even an iota of interest in Scottish politics I would think). The Scottish Tory fanboys, and girls, are at it again, flashing their knicker elastic at Boris Johnson as he ascends to the lofty position of being the last Prime Minister of a […]

JACOB Rees-Mogg has officially joined the push for a No Deal Brexit if the new PM can’t get a brand new deal. The top Brexiteer joined a group of MPs urging the new PM to rip up Theresa May’s deal completely and start again. Jacob Rees-Mogg has said the deal Theresa May got must be completely ripped up And if Boris or Hunt can’t get a new deal, then he wants the next leader to go for a No Deal instead on October 31. In a video for grassroots group Stand up 4 Brexit today he insisted the deal was “defunct”. And he added: “There must be no more shilly-shallying. “We need to leave on different terms, whether that is with an agreement or not.” Mr Rees-Mogg, who is a backer of frontrunner Boris Johnson, said that it wasn’t just the hated backstop but the rest of the withdrawal agreement that “does not work”, and the new PM must get something different. He insisted that Boris would “lift our spirits” and “peddle optimism” to show how we can make the economy work outside the EU. “We must leave on the 31 October,” he said. [quote credit=”Jacob Rees-Mogg”]We need to leave on different terms, whether that is with an agreement or not[/quote] “It has been promised to voters not just once in the referendum in 2016 but also by the 2017 general election. “There is a great future for this country outside the failed economic model of the European Union.” He later told Radio 4 that a new deal should be much “simpler” and only involve the “guarantee of citizens rights and moving towards a free trade deal”. Three more backers are set to join the Stand up 4 Brexit campaign today – making the total number of MPs on board 46. In the final vote on the PM’s deal back in March, 34 Tories voted it down. MPs Henry Smith and Eddie Hughes, along with Mr Rees Mogg are expected to pledge today. Mr Hughes wrote for The Sun Online today: “Boris has guaranteed that Brexit will happen by 31 October, and he won’t time-waste by resurrecting Theresa May’s EU deal which Parliament has voted against three times. “Instead, Boris will hasten the country’s preparations for 31 October and offer the EU a free trade deal, similar to the one they offered us in 2018 which the last government declined. “He already has the support of Parliament: four fifths of MPs voted to trigger Article 50 back in 2017.  Whatever MPs say or do, unless they confront and do something about this legal reality, they are whistling in the wind. “We must ‘Stand up 4 Brexit’ and deliver the result of the 2016 referendum by 31 October.” Boris has vowed to take us out of the EU by the end of October – with or without a deal [boxout headline=”Boris won’t time-waste resurrecting May’s deal which Parliament has slapped down three times” featured-image=”9539098″ intro=”By Eddie Hughes MP”]THE Conservative Party has not been connecting with the majority of hardworking voters. The political class has been caught in the Brexit headlights, gripped with fear, not knowing which way to turn.  This dithering has bored the nation, destroyed trust in politics and stopped us focusing on the issues that voters really care about, like housing. Over the last 25 years, house prices have risen almost seven times as much as our monthly pay cheques.  We need a new approach. A Blue Collar Conservatism housing agenda will make us the proud party of home ownership again.  By expanding “shared ownership housing”, everyone – not just the privileged few – will be able to buy a stake in society and ensure that their hard work is rewarded.  But we will only be able to do this if we deliver Brexit. That’s why I’m supporting Boris Johnson to become our next PM.  He has guaranteed that Brexit will happen by 31 October, and he won’t time-waste by resurrecting Theresa May’s EU deal which Parliament has voted against three times. Instead, Boris will hasten the country’s preparations for 31 October and offer the EU a free trade deal, similar to the one they offered us in 2018 which the last government declined. He already has the support of Parliament: four fifths of MPs voted to trigger Article 50 back in 2017.  Whatever MPs say or do, unless they confront and do something about this legal reality, they are whistling in the wind. We must “Stand up 4 Brexit” and deliver the result of the 2016 referendum by 31 October. Fail to do this and Jeremy Corbyn and his merry band of dangerous, job-crushing, high taxing, economically illiterate supporters will end up in No.10 and destroy the aspirations of a generation of hard working families. Succeed and we will restore faith in politics and unite the country as we move on to deliver the Blue Collar agenda that will allow us to reach out to communities that have never voted Conservative before.[/boxout] [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN POLITICS” posts_category=”318″ posts_number=”12″ query_type=”popular” /] Boris has repeatedly promised he will take Britain out of the EU by October 31 – deal or no deal. His rival, Jeremy Hunt, has said he is aiming to leave by October 31 but will seek another extension if a deal is on the cards but not yet done. Earlier this week The Sun revealed that more than 40 MPs now want the new PM to throw out the deal completely – which will dash hopes they have of trying to make any tweaks to it and get it over the line. And in recent days Boris said he didn’t want to tinker it around the edges anymore, effectively killing ideas of trying to negotiate a change to the backstop, such as a five-year time limit.

Brexit Compliance News

There is a good reason why every civilised country in the world tightly regulates its financial system. The 2008 global financial crisis, after all, was largely the result of rolling back financial regulation. Crooks, criminals, and grifters are a fact of life, and no financial system can serve its proper purpose unless investors are protected […]

Between the Lines

Ok, slight lie in the title – we’re sacking off this week’s Wrap-Up because it’s eclipsed by what happened yesterday. And to kick things off, yesterday’s story about Boris was pure, unadulterated comedy in the style of The Thick Of It. Our future Prime Minister brandished a kipper, easily the world’s funniest-named fish, atop his […]

If you plan to threaten the other party, then it better be a very credible threat. One that you can actually deliver. One that makes the other party genuinely frightened. You also better be careful that they guy you threaten can’t reach for a bigger counter threat. Now, I’m not actually sure what the British could threaten us Irish with. That they’ll wreck our economy? How? Just around 10% of Ireland’s exports go to the UK (here) and that is a continually dwindling number. Irish dependency on the UK is just not what it used to be..
