The United Kingdom is facing growing challenges to the Union, claim experts, amid Scotland’s angling for a second shot at independence , simmering loyalist tensions in Northern Ireland over the Irish Sea border post-Brexit, and rising nationalist sentiments in Wales. Forceful sanguinity and injections of cash could be part of the “Project Love” approach the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson will opt for in dealing with the fast-growing pressures that threaten the union, suggests Alister Jack, the UK’s secretary of state for Scotland.

The calls follow the publication of the Prime Minister’s COVID roadmap which seeks to end the lockdown in England by the 21st of June later this year. Looking at the measures in greater detail, Michael Kill, the CEO of the UK’s Night Time Industries Association, shares his thoughts on the government’s exit strategy out of lockdown. Sputnik: What are your thoughts on the proposed roadmap out of lockdown? Do you welcome the approach announced earlier this week?

"It's crazy, when the country is in such a mess this is what they are focusing on, this fighting and backbiting. Surely the country deserves better than this", Ashworth told Sky News. The lawmaker claimed that not paying sick pay, not having the proper Personal Protection Equipment for health staff earlier and delaying going into COVID-19 lockdowns were among the things the government got "desperately wrong" during the pandemic.

On June 23rd, 1974, 21-year-old jazz-fusion guitarist Daryl Stuermer was watching the short-lived talk show Speakeasy when the guests for the evening included Beach Boys singer Mike Love, English guitarist John McLaughlin, jazz flutist Charles Lloyd and Genesis frontman Peter Gabriel. Stuermer had never heard of Genesis and the brief video segment showing their performance of “Supper’s Ready” did little to win him over. “Peter was wearing a flower on his head,” says Stuermer. “When I saw that I thought, ‘Oh, that’s not my kind of thing.
