‘Rebuilding is part of our resistance’: how Ukraine is bringing Bucha back to life | Ukraine | The Guardian

The town infamous for a massacre at hands of Russia has become a symbol of Ukraine’s reconstruction effort, but experts say the influx of money from the west will bring challenges in such a corrupt country


What is really required is Russia out of all areas of Ukraine, so all of Ukraine can be brought back to life.

Russia or really Putin needs to be dealt with, but his stangle hold on Russia is so strong, currently, lets do hope for not much longer.

He abuses his assumed power like no other.

He has and is committing War Crimes like no others and while he is around no one is safe either in Russia or out of Russia.

Donald Trump: polling suggests criminal charges won’t dampen his support

The US constitution would not restrict Donald Trump from running for president, even if he is in the middle of a court case, or was convicted.


Unfortunately all of this is so true and really does show that the US voting system is not what it should be.

Trump has a long history of subverting the US legal system by whatever means at his disposal. He also appears to have the ability to advise his supporters exactly what they wish to hear, even if some of the information he gives them can easily be disproved and at times he says opposing views to different audiences depending on what he feels this wish to hear. But, each audience only hears what they wish to and not what they don’t.

Non-Trump supporters wish this will be the end of Trump, but I feel it will not be, we can only hope that many of his current supporters do, eventually see Trump for what he really is.

Trump’s verbal assaults pose risks to prosecutors and could fuel violence | Donald Trump | The Guardian

Trump has resorted to ‘incendiary rhetoric’ to deter investigations and to rile up his base, experts say, and shows no sign of letting up


Trump is fighting for his political life and it can be assumed he is far from sure he will obtain it through the US democratic voting process, so he is appealing to his supporters to rise and obtain it through mob violence.

If there is any justice left in America then Trump should not succeed in any approach he uses, but have we have seen in some instances America is predictable, hence the ‘gun lobby and others it is not.

Unfortunately some of the Trump supporters have nothing left to believe in, except the retoric of Trump.

If Trump does eventually succeed receiving the Repblican canditure for the Presidency and then become the President for another, then ‘God’ help us all, not just America but the whole World.

We all saw how he left America after his previous term as President and while there as been some recovery, the damage he caused will take some time to reverse. With another term any damage caused may not be possible to reverse for there maybe no World left.

These are very dangerous times for us all and certainly in America all Human Rights will be removed.

Opinion | The AR-15 and other assault rifles should be banned – The Washington Post

A Post investigation underscores the dangers of this weapon of war.


This is all so true and strengthens the belief that many Americas are still in the mindset of the Wild West. Europeans invaded what is now known as America starting from the 15th century but this was more so during the 18th. I say invaded as they were not invited by the indigenous people who populated the area of America from around 15,000 BC.

In the 15th to 18th century it was done more by ignorance than arrogance, but today it is more arrogance than ignorance with the view of ‘gun culture’.

This gun culture was borne out of the invasion and more so with the onwards invasions into the more west of America. There they saw vast open lands which they assumed was for their taking, no thought was given to the indigenous people, except that these people were trying to stop their assumed right to invade and settle in these areas, but these lands had been populated by the indigenous people for 1000s of years.

The gun culture was cultivated and included in the American Constitution of 1789, but times have changed, but not the mindset of many Americans for they still believe in the right to bear arms, in the 2nd Amendment of which there appears to be a number of version, but this is the version ratified by Delaware and used by the Supreme Court in District of Columbia v. Heller:

A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed

It was Influence of the English Bill of Rights of 1689, but since then the UK has become more enlightened on guns, which America has not.

Guns of today have progress so much since 1789 but not the mindset of some Americans, so they view they still have a right to say own a AR-15 as they did the much more simpler guns of 1789 but the AR-15 is so much more powerful and thereby so much more destructive. To some extent it could be seen that a AR-15 be used in some sporting context, but surely not for use by any individual for any means they wish to and certainly not to massacre innocent civilians of which there has been 130 incidents so far this year.

Surely some alterations to the gun culture are required, perhaps not to ban guns completely for non-military and non-sporting use, but surely the types relating to AR-15 should be considered. Not to do so will only mean the extent of mass shootings will considerably increase so much more than the 647 in 2022 and many more innocent civilians children and adults will be injured and more so killed.

The arrogance certainly needs to be curtailed for ignorance is no excuse. Yes, there is the right to own guns, but surely this should be superceded by the right to life which has been denied to many innocents killed in America.

TV Presenter Sophie Morgan In ‘Rage At The Injustice’ Of Blue Badge Theft

So sorry to hear of all that has happened to you and breaking into any vehicle is bad enough, but to then steal a Blue Badge is so very despicable and do hope you get your replacement very soon.

A digitable Blue Badge would be so convenient for some, but only if they are in the vehicle which the badge would be registered to. In this day of digital why couldn’t a facility to digitally transfer the badge to any vehicle the person is in be available, but then this would require investment funding which is not readily available especially from Government At times I honestly believe that the government wishes that all disabled persons would disappear and in much of the context of government this is what they tend to assume has occurred or so wish it as, because disabled persons are not any priority of this government.

Same Difference

    TV presenter Sophie Morgan was left “in a rage” at the “injustice” of her Blue Badge being stolen from her car.

    The Loose Women star, who uses a wheelchair, said she would have to wait weeks for her car to be fixed and a replacement Blue Badge issued.

    “I literally can’t describe how disabling this is,” she said, adding the inconvenience was “beyond measure”.

    Blue Badges are issued by your local council and are displayed on the car’s dashboard.

    They are proof you are disabled and enable you to get free or longer term parking as well as entitling you to use disabled parking bays which tend to be closer to destinations.

    Sophie was away working in America when her car back in London was broken into, earlier this month. The perpetrators “smashed the window on the passenger side,” she told the BBC’s disability podcast, Access All.

    Trump wants to be handcuffed for court appearance in Stormy Daniels case, sources say | Donald Trump | The Guardian

    People close to former president said to be unsure whether he is serious about wanting to do a perp walk


    Trump will only do what he feels is best for him and most likely is completely unaware of the enormity of this case and all the others to follow.

    He has used his assumed fame and his supposed wealth for his own benefit wherever he has been allowed to and in many instances where he has not been.

    Over his lifetime and those of his father and grandfather they have assumed that they can control and are above the Law, as though the law is insignificant.

    Whereas it is Trump who really needs to be worried for it appears all his actions are coming home to roost. Yes, his MAGA supporters will believe everything he tells them for they too are so blinded by Trump and are unable or unwilling to grasp reality.

    Let’s so hope that with all that is coming for Trump this will be his eventual ending and in that all America and the World will be at last not have to hear from Trump ever again.

    Woman who lied about being raped and drove three men to suicide attempts is jailed – Mirror Online

    WARNING – GRAPHIC IMAGES: Three men who were falsely accused of rape by Eleanor Williams told the court the allegations caused them to attempt to take their own lives – she was jailed today


    Eleanor Williams with her false accusations has not only created major problems for those she falsely accused, but also made it much more difficult for others to bring accusations of sexual incidents.

    It has never be easy to start to report such events for numerous reasons and when doing so few ever get to court, let alone being proven.

    Now with Eleanor Williams more likely fewer people will report due to them feeling by this case they will not be believed.

    Eleanor has caused so much damage and distress not just for now, but for many years to come, so is an eight and a half years sentence sufficient, I say not has she has created a life-time sentence for many, so the eight and a half years needs to be considerably increased.

    Prepayment Energy Meters, Are You Due Compensation?

    Unfortunately, many Utility companies can’t be trusted, if any at all, so unless each and everyone of them are taken to court separately for each and every breach of the law they will continue to break the law at will.

    Each and every CEO needs to be made legally responsible.

    While not about prepayment meters, I am in dispute with my own Utility company and have sent them a formal cpmplaint in early January 2023, all I have received so far is an auto-email acknowledgement saying they will respond in 5 days. Those days are now 2 months, but can’t refer to Ofgem for another month.

    No point in switching for they are all as bad as each other.

    Currently they care for no one except themselves.

    Same Difference

    With many thanks to Benefits And Work.

    Energy suppliers have been told by Ofgem this week to pay compensation to customers wrongly forced to have prepayment meters.  Other customers may have the right to have their prepayment meters removed, even if they don’t get compensation.  We would like to hear from Benefits and Work readers if you have been affected by this growing scandal.

    According to Ofgem rules, suppliers can’t legally force-fit a prepayment meter under warrant for people in very vulnerable situations if they don’t want one. Nor can they legally use warrants on people who would find the experience very traumatic.

    Yet it has become increasingly clear that suppliers have been forcibly fitting meters unlawfully with virtually no scrutiny by courts, who simply took the suppliers word that all the necessary checks had been made.
