posted by Hannity Staff - 4.19.18

British Prime Minister Theresa May is taking drastic measures to help crackdown on pollution and waste; planning to introduce legislation that would ban plastic straws, coffee stirrers, and cotton swabs across the United Kingdom.

The UK leader called on other Commonwealth nations to join her fight and help “protect the oceans” and “marine environment.”

“Plastic waste is one of the greatest environmental challenges facing the world, which is why protecting the marine environment is central to our agenda at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting,” May said.

The Prime Minister added that her government plans to spend nearly $90 million on researching climate change and plastic pollution’s impact on the world’s oceans.

“Single-use plastics are a scourge on our seas and lethal to our precious environment and wildlife so it is vital we act now,” added the UK’s Environmental Secretary.

A man in his mid-twenties was brutally stabbed to death in North London Wednesday night, bringing the British capital’s murder rate to over 50 people since the beginning of 2018 and raising serious security questions throughout the United Kingdom.

According to the Telegraph, the unidentified man was found “fatally wounded” by the Metropolitan Police Department in London’s Hackney neighborhood shortly after 8pm.

“In the same borough just hours earlier a man in his 50s died outside a bookmakers in Upper Clapton Road following a suspected fight,” writes the Telegraph. “The attack has added to the UK’s soaring rate of knife crime, with fatal stabbings in England and Wales at their highest levels since 2010/11.”

The stabbing death comes just days after two teenagers were killed in similar attacks in the country’s largest city.
