  1. The Lady is for U-Turning She's a mess She took a gamble and lost it But refuses to acknowledge it And it's not just the social care bill backtracking (never mind she kept trotting out her "building a fairer Britain" rethoric since her appointment last July) It's also the appalling and evasive way she's shown in dealing with Brexit Happy for Corbyn
  2. European council president Donald Tusk has destabilised Theresa May's Brexit plan after saying on Thursday it "will not work". Mr Tusk's damning statement in Salzburg comes as European leaders have ramped up the pressure on the Prime Minister, despite her insistence her Chequers deal is the only route to an agreement. May's plan involves keeping parts of the single market after Britain leaves the European Union but she has been told it cannot be cherry-picked. Mr Tusk said of the so-called Chequers proposals: "the suggested framework for economic cooperation will not work, not least because it risks undermining the single market." He also set an alarming deadline for the Prime Minister saying, "The moment of truth for Brexit negotiations will be the October European Council. In October, we expect maximum progress and results in the Brexit talks."
  3. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2018/aug/09/report-damns-culture-of-acceptance-of-sexual-abuse-at-two-catholic-schools Report damns culture of acceptance of sexual abuse at two Catholic schools Inquiry says Ampleforth and Downside put own reputations before protection of children The true scale of sexual abuse at two of the UK’s leading Catholic independent schools over a period of 40 years is likely to have been far greater than has been proved in the courts, a report by the independent inquiry into child sexual abuse has concluded. Ten people have been convicted or cautioned in relation to sexual offences at Ampleforth in North Yorkshire and Downside in Somerset. The schools “prioritised the monks and their own reputations over the protection of children … in order to avoid scandal”, says the 211-page report published by IICSA on Thursday after hearings last year. The monks avoided giving information to or cooperating with statutory authorities investigating abuse, it says. Their approach could be summarised as “a ‘tell them nothing’ attitude”. The report says: “Appalling sexual abuse [was] inflicted over decades on children as young as seven at Ampleforth school and 11 at Downside school.” The inquiry heard that boys were made to strip naked and were beaten. Some were allegedly forced to give and receive oral sex, both privately and in front of other pupils. Alleged abuse included digital penetration of the anus and children being compelled to perform sex acts on each other. Physical abuse had sadistic and sexual overtones, the report says. One survivor described his abuser at Ampleforth as “an out-and-out sadist”. A victim of Fr Piers Grant-Ferris, who was convicted in 2006 of assaulting 15 boys, described being forced to straddle a bath naked as the monk beat him while masturbating. It was “absolutely terrifying”, he told the inquiry. “Many perpetrators did not hide their sexual interests from the children. The blatant openness of these activities demonstrates there was a culture of acceptance of abusive behaviour,” the report says.
  4. Sick to my stomack The Catholic Church and Christian denominations in general have a detailed and long history. A nasty one at that. I'm not saying it doesn't happen in other contexts, settings or other religions but with these scumbags the covering up is systematic When priests behave this way they should not be judged by a "Church Court of Law" but by the Lay Justice System where the offending event has taken place. It's just an obvious little trick that places the Church ABOVE THE LAW

  10. David Davis resigns as UK Brexit secretary https://www.ft.com/content/fef0e51c-8300-11e8-96dd-fa565ec55929 David Davis has resigned as Brexit secretary in a major blow to Theresa May. The prime minister is hoping to win over Tory Brexiteers after a backlash against her plans for leaving the European Union. But the Press Association reported that Mr Davis, who signed up to the plan agreed by the cabinet at Chequers on Friday, has now quit. Two senior sources confirmed Mr Davis’ departure from the cabinet. His exit may embolden Brexiteer backbenchers with concerns about Mrs May’s leadership. The move comes on the eve of a major test for the prime minister as she faces first the House of Commons and then a potentially stormy meeting of Tory MPs and peers on Monday. Mrs May is expected to tell MPs that the strategy agreed on at Chequers is the “right Brexit” for Britain.
