Charge dropped against white woman who called police on Black bird-watcher


This says a lot about American Justice, which appears to have one law for persons who are White and another for persons who are Black.

Not only does it emerge with white and black individuals encountering each other, but in many instances how the Forces of law and Order behave.

Granted we only see through the media those that the Media wish us to see, but there does appear to be many elements in the various American Societies who wish for the clocks to be turned back to before Slavery was abolished or was meant to.

If this had been in reverse how would it have proceeded, well, I believe that the charge would not have been dropped. In fact, I was surprised that a charge was even brought, especially against the white women, for the expected would have been an incorrect charge brought against the Black bird-watcher, so this has to be seen as some progress, but far from enough.

To be Black in America is far from good for those who are Black, especially when many of the Police forces can not be trusted.

Trump ready to make McConnell’s life miserable | TheHill


Well he has made life miserable for everyone else over his 4 years of being President, so 1 more will not make much different.

What needs to be done is make life miserable for Trump and his family, assuming Republican Senators put everyone first rather than trying to save themselves.

Will your complaint get heard as the Government forces the Parliamentary Ombudsman to curb its service?


This is yet another example of disgraceful behaviour from this Government and by all accounts many previous Governments.

The Ombudsman services should be there to right the wrongs in Central and Local Governments and also health administrations, so that the public can get justice, instead of the current injustices.

However, until the Government will allow them to do the required work and provide the required funding the Ombudsman’s will fall way short of what should be.

Rishi Sunak: Postponing the cash to improve the Ombudsman service

The Parliamentary Ombudsman has already – as I wrote in an earlier blog – faced a critical report from MPs on the way it handles some of its work.

And Michael Gove, the Cabinet Office minister, has also turned down any prospect of new legislation to modernise the service by combining its work with the local government and social care ombudsman.

Not content with that, Rishi Sunak, the Chancellor, has now postponed a three year funding programme which would have allowed it to introduce changes to improve matters.

Instead The Treasury has decided to give it just one year’s worth of funding and instructed it to concentrate on handling complaints arising out of Covid 19 pushing aside other grievances..

Details of this latest bad news has not been put out in any press release by the Ombudsman but has been…

Ursula von der Leyen accidentally SUPPORTS Brexit in vaccine apology | Daily Mail Online


After Brexit we should all be looking to the future and not the past, for what has been done has already gone.

The UK still wishes to work with Europe, but not controlled by the EU, for while many european countries are in the EU, the EU is not Europe, the EU just a political machine working for its own existence, which may or may not be of 100% benefit to all of the European countries who are members of the EU.

The Trumpian EU has demolished its final reasons for existing


The EU has showed what it really is a ‘bully’ and its complete disregard for for anyone who does not agree with it 100%.

This instance is not the first for there are a number, such as the treatment of Greece from 2009.

But, in the current instance not only was the UK and Northern Ireland

aggrieved, but also many countries within the EU, Ireland for one

The EU needs to understand that it should discuss, and not govern dictatorially, but they have had years doing the latter and rarely challenged by EU member countries, with the possible exception of the UK, while it was a member.

‘Virus anywhere is virus everywhere’: Tony Blair calls for world to come together to fight Covid | The Independent


This is all well and good, but when Mr Blairs EU is acting as a spoilt child instead of being a competent and responsible organisation, not easy for the EU to do, but they need to try to be.

They need to own their own problems and not cast blame by diverting to others.

This is needed to ensure their own existence, a steep learning curve, but needs to be done.

Vaccine war brewing as EU demands Covid jabs produced in UK | The Independent


Again the EU wants to take on the UK, but who is correct for you can’t expect any contract to not be respected.

The UK contract is with AstraZeneca and not the EU, and we are not responsible for any assumed noncompliance with a contract which has nothing to do with the UK.

Should the EU retaliate by putting a trade block on Pfizer BioNTech exporting their vaccine to the UK, then the UK could retaliate by putting a Trade block on Oxford/AstraZeneca exporting their vaccine to the EU.

Both would be against international trading rules, but who went first.

Should the EU be so vindictive, then who would trust the EU ever again.

To mitigate any problems the UK should immediately stop using the Pfizer BioNTech for first vaccines and recommence using for second vaccines, then use Oxford/AstraZeneca for first and second vaccines and so on in Spring 2021 for the Modena vaccine.

Yes, it is childish and 2 wrongs do not make a right, but if the EU want to be childish then what should be done, well the EU should act responsively as they stated they wanted the UK to do when we threatened to break International Law when we were negotiating the Brexit Trade Agreement.

Vaccines. The United Kingdom v a “rules-based organisation”. | Conservative Home


Boris and his Government have made many mistakes leading to substantial failures during this COVID-19 pandemic, but the vaccine situation would appear to be the one and only success.

However, this does not discount the many failures.

Here it is the EU who have failed, but their over  bureaucratic nature means they are unwilling to accept their failure and thereby are causing alarm and concern to an independent country (UK) to overcome this failure.

This can’t be allowed to happen and therefore the EU will have to backdown, something which is not akin to them.

If we were still in the EU none of us would have had any COVID-19 vaccinations, let alone being an European leader.

Unfortunately, the EU will not countenance any UK successes, the EU is showing isolationism and putting the EU first above all others, now where have I heard and seen something similar, well would you believe it, 4 years of President Trump in the US.

COVID-19 vaccine: EU Commission insists AstraZeneca commitment ‘binding’ as supply row escalates | Euronews


The EU is a joke when they talk of transparency, for you only have to look at their budgets to prove that. Have they ever had a completed budget audit approved.

As usual the EU is trying to show they are big hitters and throwing around their assumed power. They have been behind in this vaccine all along and still have to approve it.

I feel it is a bit of jealously in that the UK got ahead of them, so I am glad we left the EU and other countries need to seriously look into the EU and ensure they put themselves forward instead of the EU.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Liked Posts Calling For Killing Democratic Politicians: Reports | HuffPost UK


This is really disturbing and shows how FAKE facts can influence activists.
 
While I respect ‘Freedom of Speech’ there is some speech where it is debatable to allow, especially should this be to incite the breakdown of ‘Law and Order’.
