  • Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Starmer: G7 a ‘wasted opportunity’ because Johnson failed to show leadership” – below is their description.

    Keir Starmer accused Boris Johnson of squandering the opportunity of hosting the first G7 of the Covid recovery by failing to make substantive progress on vaccines, Northern Ireland, or the Middle East. ‘He was hosting, not leading the G7,’ Starmer said. ‘He was acting not as a leader but as a tour guide.’

  • In This Story: Ireland

    Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.

    Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.

    The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.

    A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
