I have just seen the Chancellor tells us how important public services are and that he is going to spend money on them in this weeks budget. This is from the government who have spent the last decade cutting huge amounts on public service spending. Before we were told there was no Magic Money Tree. Now apparently there is a whole forest of them. Why on Earth does anybody have any trust in these people?
I didn’t think this would happen but I actually agree with something Priti Patel says. It is high time that people on social media stopped hiding and are visible and accountable. She is only taking this action though because of the grief MPs get online. What about the grief ordinary people have been getting online for years? Perhaps it will encourage better behaviour in boards like this in the future too?
Dreadful news. Perhaps it is time to provide armed guards for MP’s surgeries. I knew nothing about this MP but it sounds like he was one of those who did his job for all constituents quietly behind the scenes and did it well. People should not have to put their lives on the line when they sign up for public service. Too many nut jobs out there. RIP
I’m not a fan of boxing anyway as it seems pretty clear that constant battering of the skull is not healthy, but female boxing just seems so wrong. Just read that an 18 year old girl, Jeanette Zacarias Zapata has died after being knocked out in the ring. If there concerns about heading a football, surely it is time that boxing was looked at again. Even head guards don’t protect against the constant battering the brain gets.
Missed this news yesterday but another footballing legend has passed away. One of the best poaching goalscorers ever. His legs were too short for his body but it gave him a low centre of gravity which was ideal for a striker as he had amazing balance. RIP
After many years of death and disability amongst our soldiers we have now left the country and once again it is at the mercy of the Taliban. The families and loved ones of those who have lost their lives and those who will spend the rest of their lives without limbs must be wondering why they bothered. We followed the US in their supposed fight against terrorism. Yet another failure of American foreign policy that we trotted dutifully behind. What a waste of lives and resources that turned out to be.
