I have come to the British Virgin Islands and Anguilla to see first-hand UK aid in action, helping families whose lives have been ripped apart first by Hurricane Irma and then Maria.”During her trip, Ms. Patel will meet families in the British Virgin Islands whose lives were torn apart by Hurricane Irma, and she will visit Anguilla to see UK efforts to get schools and businesses up and running to speed up recovery.The £5 million pledge brings the British Government’s financial support for islands hit by Hurricane Maria and Hurricane Irma to £62 million, a sum which has gone to overseas territories including the British Virgin Islands, Anguilla and Turks, and Caicos.This new pledge comes after calls for the UK Government to revisit their foreign aid policy with would prevent the country from contributing to relief efforts in the British overseas territories.

Bianchi wants Napoli to overcome victim mentality

first_imgNapoli legend Ottavio Bianchi has urged his former side to get rid of the “victim mentality” if they want to make exploits in the modern game.Bianchi who won the Scudetto with Napoli believes It’s the only area where they haven’t grown exponentially ahead of tonight’s game with Milan.“In some ways, the only area where Napoli haven’t grown exponentially over the years is in their victim mentality. That’s just an extra chance given to the opposition. He disclosed to Football Italia.“In my days, Napoli would fight to avoid relegation one year and finish mid-table the other. At that time, you knew you were representing a great city, but now you are representing a big club too.“Now the club has been at the top for years, a side with a precise identity and Carlo Ancelotti can now ‘make the most’ of Maurizio Sarri’s work, adding his own ideas to build on the existing project.Do not miss out on the Serie A action tonight!⚽️📢AC Milan takes on Napoli by 7:30 pm.Cristiano Ronaldo, JuventusSerie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….Searching for high odds?🤔Bet on our https://t.co/OUHKpAWnGj Special Pick👇🏽 pic.twitter.com/ZTABnFL8Bb— BLACKBET.NG (@BlackbetNG) January 26, 2019“Ancelotti has done really well to not completely tear it down and start again. He is getting the best out of his players with squad rotation, not going overboard. They say the best Coach is the one that does the least damage.”Nonetheless, Juventus are still streaking out in front on their way to a potential eighth consecutive Scudetto.“Juve are putting together results that can never be repeated, but it’s also because all their challengers have fallen at more or less the same time. If Inter, Milan and Roma return to playing at a certain level, it’ll be easier also for Napoli to challenge Juve.”last_img read more
