Looking to the future

I was hoping the only form of turbulence, if any, I’d experience this summer would be caused by a plane taking me to a hot, sunny country.

But alas, the Brexit fallout continues, boosted by a leadership contest for who will become Britain’s next Prime Minister.

Our Inside Westminster column this month takes a look back at Theresa May’s legacy and helps to soothe the soul that it’s not all bad news, given the series of hard-hitting policies we have seen during the legacy.

Away from the playground antics of Westminster, it’s reassuring to see investment isn’t being shied away from the resource industry. Whether it’s plastics recycling plants, new Energy from Waste facilities or research grant funding, the money is certainly piling in.

As we await the results of Defra’s consultations, let’s enjoy the bustling atmosphere we’re currently experiencing and the inevitable process we are making towards a circular economy.

I believe the entire country should be owed a holiday in the sun with a Pina Colada as compensation for the past few years, but for now I’d settle on a bit of clarity.
