They also voted in favour of ruling out leaving the EU without a deal, and in favour of extending the Brexit process.The prime minister had hoped to have another try at getting MPs to back the deal this week – but Speaker John Bercow effectively torpedoed that with his surprise intervention on Monday.She still hopes to ultimately get it in front of MPs for a third go, but says even if that happens and they vote in favour of it, the UK will need a short extension to get the necessary legislation through Parliament.Relatedlast_img read more

This resulted in me getting involved in creating solutions to climate change and sustainability, and co-founding the Shaper Group, a group of companies that helps to transform businesses to be more profitable and sustainable. I was fortunate to win the 2006 Young South Australian of the Year, 2007 British Council Eureka Prize, and 2008 ADC Future Summit Leadership Award.Goal(s) for the future To become the Richard Branson of sustainable business.Best moment of your lifeThis moment, and every moment, of every day in my life!One word that describes you the bestFearless.People you most admire and whyMy mum and dad, and business partner, Dan Atkins – he’s given up the easy life to change the world for the better.If I could say anything to the Greek community… We have a culture of living and history that’s worth sharing, but other ethnicities also have a culture of history and learning that’s worth listening to.Most embarrassing moment Realising just how afraid I was of taking risks in life, and recognising that in reality ‘safe is risky’.Favourite place to go or hang out atBesides the gym, the Barossa Valley in South Australia which has awesome winSong that I can’t get out of my headClocks-Cold Play.Favourite Greek foodAll of it!

People may not respect him for it right now (and he may risk losing a future election), but in 20 years time he’ll go down as the person that wasn’t afraid to make the tough decisions for the good of future generations.last_img read more
