A new trade analysis reveals the scale of Britain’s role in the international ivory trade Britain was the world’s largest exporter of legal ivory between 2010 and 2015, a breakdown of records held by the Convention on international trade in endangered species (Cites) has revealed. Not only did the UK export more ivory than anyone else to Hong Kong and China – which are considered smuggling hubs for “blood ivory” - it also sold on 370% more ivory than the next highest exporter, the USA. The new trade analysis, which is being released ahead of World Elephant Day on Saturday, will embarrass the government https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2017/aug/10/uk-named-as-worlds-largest-legal-ivory-exporter Tories quietly ditch manifesto promise to ban bloodthirsty ivory trade that kills thousands of elephants a year Prince William has backed calls for a ban on ivory sales, saying he is “not prepared to be part of a generation that lets these iconic species disappear from the wild”. https://davidshepherd.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/Letter-to-the-Telegraph.pdf committed to ‘press for a total ban on ivory sales’.

My Mother-in-law sent for a "free sample" of the above tooth whitening product, in response to a pop-up ad. on the internet. Two packages were delivered to her home, before Christmas, as she was leaving to spend the holiday period with our family. She returned home, yesterday, and on checking her Barclaycard statement, she finds multiple amounts (five in total, ranging from £0.82 to £62.27) have been charged to her account. My Mother-in-law has, unwittingly signed up for a subscription to make monthly purchases of a useless product, at a cost of more than £120.00 per month. The small print on the confirmation e-mail she was sent, says she can return the product, at her own cost, but will only be given a partial refund, and only if she does so within fifteen days. She has contacted Barclaycard, who will block any future demands from this American company, but is there any way that she can get her £127.00 back?
