Many Britons who live abroad feel abandoned by their National Government. The elderly who live in the Far East or Africa have long suffered a diminution of their income because the Government refuses to increase their State pension. Now The Referendum has brought a feeling of this abandonment to Europe, especially to those who have no vote because they moved to Europe fifteen years ago or more. On February 23rd some progress might be started to put into history this abandonment of the British Citizen by the British Government.
It's amazing how scientists invest thousands of hours in research to help humanity and governments create a better world. These hours are paid for by the same governments which file the results and continue to do what we all know will result in tragedy.
Since 2002 many professors and experts warned about forest fires and suggested the best ways to prevent them. Nothing happened.

The Vatican had invited leading astrophysicists and cosmologists to its astronomical observatory near Rome to discuss “black holes, gravitational waves and space-time singularities”.
I’ve written earlier that the presidential elections in France would end up in a mess. I told friends that Le Pen would not win, but would get most of the votes of unhappy citizens. I was wrong. A new group almost won the elections, the NABO (Null, Abstention, Blank, Other), with 37% of electors. Macron got only 41.5%, far from the majority.
Worst results for the current so called “democracy” in France is the abstention among youngsters (30%) and young professionals up to 34y, (28%).
