According to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, 53 percent of Americans believe that Congress should investigate whether Donald Trump’s presidential campaign had contact with the Russian government in 2016, while a quarter say that lawmakers should not probe the issue. Meanwhile, 54 percent of Americans believe that Congress should look into Russian interference in the election generally.

We went to Parliament

This week we delivered our biggest ever petition, which called to close the autism employment gap, to Disabilities Minister Penny Mordaunt MP. This petition, signed by nearly 30,000 of you, was handed in by Cheryl Gillian MP, the Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on

Autism, alongside a number of autistic adults.

By all means express your opinions, but no one should suffer and be subject to abuse in any form.

Unfortunately there will always be a section of the community who feel abuse is justified, but it is not and never should be.

It is life that you will never agree all the time with others points of view and with freedom of speech people should have freedom of expression, however it should never boarder or cross over to abuse.

I feel one of the UKs attributes is tolerance and we should all endeavour to be more tolerant as this one one of the groundings of democracy, yes disagree but also respect each others point of view and this will create an even greater nation. The lead needs to be taken by our elected representatives, our MPs and thereon by each and successive Government, for who should they be for, but the wellbeing of us all and not just an elitist few.

His complaint came as police separately announced that a 50-year-old man from Eastbourne had been charged with making threats on Facebook against the town’s MP Caroline Ansell, and a 73-year-old man had been arrested in West Sussex over allegations of offensive social media messages to MPs.

The Conservative spoke out earlier this week over a Labour by-election leaflet warning that mothers…

Promoting Positive Partnership Working

A little bit about myself first.  I am a 40 something mum, student and big fan of coffee.  I also work for a national learning disability charity as a support worker, and have  worked within health and social care for the past 7 years. I continually juggle all 3 of aspects, as I’m certain many other working student parents do. The aim of this blog is to add an individual and personal touch to one of the “partnership” units for the HNC Health and Social Care level 4 course I am studying, and of course to allow me to present my knowledge in a different way, rather than just on paper.  Whilst not completely informal, this blog will be less academic than a written essay as a way of appealing to readers.

Promoting Positive Partnership Working

The term “Partnership” is somewhat of a buzz word within the remit of health and social care currently.  This…

The parliamentary inquiry into “fake news”, or at least the Home Office, may have certain axes to grind.

UK Column News recently covered the launch by the House of Commons Culture, Media and Sport Committee of an inquiry into the suddenly much-bandied-about concept of “fake news”.

The Committee is chaired by Damian Collins MP, who has in fact only assumed the top spot there in the past couple of months.

The Committee’s announcement of its inquiry has sparked immediate international interest, such as in the leading Dutch broadsheet NRC Handelsblad, which lauds it as “the British getting serious about tackling fake news“. NRC notes with no sense of irony that the Committee’s chairman used to be an M&C Saatchi ad man and that he “has been arguing for some time that [news articles need] stamps of approval to establish [their] reliability”. As NRC notes, the present inquiry is expected to lead to…

WASHINGTON — Journalists from The New York Times and two other news organizations were prohibited from attending a briefing by President Trump’s press secretary on Friday, a highly unusual breach of relations between the White House and its press corps.

Reporters from The Times, CNN and Politico were not allowed to enter the West Wing office of the press secretary, Sean M. Spicer, for the scheduled briefing. Aides to Mr. Spicer allowed in reporters from only a handpicked group of news organizations that, the White House said, had been previously confirmed to attend.

Organizations allowed in included Breitbart News, the One America News Network and The Washington Times, all with conservative leanings. Journalists from ABC, CBS, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, and Fox News also attended.


A council leader has admitted that one in five of the disabled people whose care packages were reassessed by the discredited outsourcing company Capita have had their support cut. Simon Letts, the Labour leader of Southampton City Council (SCC), also admitted that none of the 90 service-users whose direct payments packages have been reassessed by Capita have seen their support increased. Letts was forced to speak out as activists from Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC) and their allies protested outside his council’s offices after a Disability News Service (DNS) story revealed how freelance social workers were offered an “extra incentive scheme” by a Capita manager last September if they increased the “savings” they achieved by cutting people’s support. Although that email offer was later withdrawn – the council and Capita insist it was never approved – another leaked Capita email passed to DNS showed how the council continued to pressure the company to cut care packages. The second

Seventy-four percent of Americans, Democrat and Republican, want to see Donald Trump’s often promised tax returns.

Hundreds of thousands have signed petitions on Whitehouse.gov and not been answered asking for the release of our unpopular president’s returns. With no response from this Republican administration, Rep. Bill Pascrell (NJ-09) said he intended to use a 1924 tax law that allowed members of the House Ways and Means Committee to privately examine tax returns to determine if there are conflicts of interest or constitutional violations.

Rep. Pascrell introduced the amendment, but 23 Republicans voted to keep those taxes hidden, thwarting the attempt at transparency.

The American people want to know. We demand an answer from these Republicans.
