The UK Pavilion at Milan Expo 2015 is inspired by the journey of the honey bee and highlights the vital role of pollination in the global food chain. Visitors experience an immersive journey through a British orchard and wildflower meadow, before entering a 14 metre high hive.

Milan Expo 2015 aims to highlight one of the most pressing challenges of our time - how to feed and sustain an expected rise in the world’s population to 9 billion by 2050. The UK’s presence at this event shows how Britain contributes world leading solutions to some of today's greatest challenges.

You can find out more on the UK Pavilion website http://www.ukpavilion2015.com/ and by following @ukpavilion2015 on Twitter and Instagram

Is that it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! from the Commonwealth office about the fighting and the killing of nearly 5000  women, children, old age pensioners and the disabled who the Illegal junta took by force with the American backed new and illegal government, who were helped into power by the all powerful European Union also giving bigger and better armaments  too to kill even more of the people of the east who's only crime was to oppose the nazi government. It makes me ashamed to be part of the EU and Britain killing people just to help a nazi government, am i right in thinking we fought the second world war to get rid of the nazi's or was i dreaming along with all other peoples of this world.

The UK’s diplomatic ties with the Holy See date back to 1479 - making #OurPeopleIn  the Holy See our oldest diplomatic representation abroad!

After a break of over 340 years – and 100 years ago this week - the two countries re-established formal relations. Today, the UK works with the Vatican on a range of issues, from human rights, development and climate change, to resolving conflicts and building peace and security around the world.
