Edinburgh Day 1 - I’ve wanted to visit this building since seeing it win the RIBA Sterling Prize in 2005, absolutely stunning building! Went on a guided tour, which included the parts closed to the public where unfortunately photography was banned as it’s a working parliament #edinburgh#scottish#parliament#holyrood#royalmile#uk#autumn
The Assembly Legislature Secretariat under the guidance of the Presiding Officer, Dr. Denise Tsoiafatt Angus, the Clerk of the Assembly, Sharon Irvine Combie and staff, recently concluded its third school study tour to the #UnitedKingdom from the 7th -14th, September, 2018 in which students and teachers of various Secondary Schools benefited by gaining information about the Westminster System Government and the Jersey Parliament of the UK. This study tour served as an extension of the training provided by the Assembly Legislature Secretariat for the Youth Assembly Plenary Sitting in December to commemorate #Tobago Day hosted by the #TobagoHouseofAssembly.
Study Tour delegates were selected from various Secondary Schools across the island of Tobago, who were either past members of the Tobago Day #Youth#Assembly debate or possible participants for the upcoming debate to be held December. The Division of Sports and Youth Affairs was also invited to be apart of this tour to experience the governance of the Jersey Assembly which can better inform the Assembly Legislature in the further expansion of the Youth Assembly Programme. Ultimately it is hoped, that this study tour engages youths in the wider process for launching a #Youth#Parliament in #Tobago in the near future.
🇸🇬 The European Union and #Singapore have finished negotiating a Free Trade Agreement and an Investment Protection Agreement. The agreements aim to remove nearly all custom duties, boosting #trade and combating climate change.
🇪🇺 Trade for electronics, food and pharmaceuticals would also be boosted, as would investment by #EU companies in Singapore and viceversa. The #Commission will now submit the proposals to the #Council, before they are sent to the European #Parliament.
Начали эксперимент "5 евро наличными" в Европе на выходные.
Ну как начали, накануне вылета поняли, что нет с собой денег. Только карта. Времени снимать, менять не было.
В конце путешествия расскажем что из этого вышло.
Пока вышло крутое фото Парламента, ужин в кафе, 2 бара и магазин.
5 евро еще не тронуты.
🇮🇹/🇲🇰• 🔴BREAKING NEWS 🔴IL PARLAMENTO MACEDONE APPROVA IL CAMBIO DEL NOME: Il parlamento macedone ha approvato pochi minuti fa con la maggioranza di due terzi richiesta il cambio di denominazione. 80 parlamentari hanno infatti votato a favore della mozione, nonostante il mancato raggiungimento del quorum al referendum consultivo dello scorso 30 settembre. 39 invece i contrari.
Il cambiamento prevede che il nome del paese diventi Repubblica del Nord Macedonia, a seguito del trattato con la Grecia. Adesso sarà necessario anche l'ok del parlamento greco. 🇬🇧/🇲🇰• 🔴BREAKING NEWS 🔴 THE MACEDON PARLIAMENT APPROVES THE CHANGE OF NAME: The Macedonian parliament approved a change of name a few minutes ago with a two-thirds majority. 80 parliamentarians have indeed voted in favor of the motion, despite the failure to reach the quorum in the consultative referendum of last September 30th. 39 instead of the contrary.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of speaking at the #sugarsummit which is a yearly meeting at Westminster hosted by the All Party Parliamentary Group and @sugarwiseme. Ok so I admit I was slightly in awe of the surroundings. I haven’t been inside #Westminster itself for a while and it’s stunning.
I was on the panel hosted by the Rt. Hon Keith VAZ (MP). Exciting to share my views on whether processed foods can be healthy and how we need to bring back cooking skills to help teach people how to used both fresh and processed foods in order to make a balanced meal. Sugar is not something to be demonised and it’s not the one nutrient that will cause obesity. But it is part of the picture and something that most of us need to eat a little less of.
I personally found Dan Parker from @vegpoweruk very inspiring and loved meeting some new food brands with low sugar products. Now getting stuck into the Veg Power book and taste testing a few products 👍 #sugareducation#priyatew#balancednutrition#dietitianuk#westminsterpalace#parliament#speaker#panellist#ukhistory#balancedeating#sugarwise#vegpower
Attending the #OYW2018 Community Dinner at the Nieuwspoort, House of Representative (Netherlands). Following the People’s Spring or The Revolutions of 1848 that spread like wildfire throughout Europe, the then king of the Netherlands, William II decided to allow a change of system that would usher in an era of parliamentary democracy into the Netherlands. Let’s hope one day, every country around the world can have great Governance!
The Hispanic Day on The Hill celebrated our amazing culture beautifully, I am proud to say that I am a Hispano in Canada and I love this country for making us all feel so welcome and surrounding us with these opportunities. I feel so blessed to have received such an amazing opportunity. What a magical night full of mind blowing performances. I can’t thank everyone who has supported me throughout this journey enough. Hard work really pays off.

Tag a friend who misses seeing Big Ben! Love this shot of the Elizabeth Tower taken from Trafalgar Square without the current scaffolding by @discoverydock. What a cracking vista across the Lions - and it even features a red double decker bus too! ‘Eee by eck, I might be a northerner, but I do love this iconic view!
For those wondering how long the tower will be covered, the programme of works is expected to complete by 2021. But it's thought that much of the scaffolding around Elizabeth Tower will be down earlier than that, as work progresses across the rest of the building. In the meantime, right here are two of my favourite free places to visit in London - The National Gallery and St Martin-in-the-Fields. The earliest extant reference to the latter is from 1222, with a dispute between the Abbot of Westminster and the Bishop of London as to who had control over it. Interestingly, Henry VIII rebuilt the church in 1542 to keep plague victims in the area from having to pass through his Palace of Whitehall! At this time, it was literally "in the fields", an isolated position between the cities of Westminster and London. Amazing how things change!
What's your favourite thing about London? Let me know below. Lovely shot by @discoverydock 🇬🇧 Want your Photos of Britain to be featured? Follow us and tag us in the shots too! Ta! 🇬🇧
