The woman’s son Chris said he was ‘so angry and so upset’ as he watched his mum ‘slip away’ while they were stuck in standstill traffic on the M25. Doctors said her recovery would have been minimal if she had arrived within 90 minutes
While I agree drastic actions need to be taken regarding climate change, but to cause all this disruption and also much pain and suffering should not be the way.
The people kept in these jams caused by these protestors actions are in no way to blame, by all means go after those in the Government but not the innocents.
Yes, these protestors have a right to protest, but the persons held in these jams also have rights and by exercising one right should not mean that other rights are ignored.

The Government should introduce legislation to make lying in the House of Commons a criminal offence. This would mean that all MPs, including Ministers, would face a serious penalty for knowingly making false statements in the House of Commons, as is the case in a court of law.

The video of the distraught girl went viral as the Taliban established control in Afghanistan. Under the previous Taliban rule, women lost many of their rights and were subjected to brutal treatment.
‘No one cares about us’ says Afghan young girl, well, not totally correct for many people do, unfortunately they are not in positions of power and able to influence decisions.
Many countries have tried to change Afghanistan, but none have ever succeeded, countries from both the West and East.
This latest situation was a mistake or more correctly misguided decision taken over 20 years ago, for the then President of the US, one George Bush Jnr, he went in to make a political point not to help Afghans. many bad decisions have been made since, but the worst was Trump, who was the Ace of bad decisions and that was compounded by Biden in his wish to become President.
The withdrawal was always going to take place but efforts to bring people out should have been completed before any withdrawal of troops was ever announced. however, not even that would have saved this very unfortunate young girl and many others in Afghanistan.

Racism, yet again, Racism should have no platform in the UK, but it does and here the blame is not only on the racists, but the Platform providers Facebook, Twitter, etc, who by their apparent refusal to take these abusive down as soon as they appear, are, effectively as guilty as the racists who post these comments.
Not only should the racists be prosecuted, but also the platform providers, for only then will this racism end.
There has to be ‘ZERO tolerism‘ with regards to racism.

During an interview at al-Roj prison camp in Syria, Shamima Begum, 21, insisted she did not need to be rehabilitated and would ‘love’ to help rehabilitate others.
jihadi bride Shamima Begum, a Good question for she has done herself no favours, how she left the OK and her initial interviews when she first made a wish to return, now she says she understands that she was wrong in what she did.
But then she would, for I feel this is how ISIS would have instructed her or similar to be. The West have little understanding of Syria/Iran and certainly none about ISIS, so every contact has to be viewed with the extreme suspiciousness. but that been said many others have been allowed to come back, even ISIS fighters, but does that mean everyone should be.
She no longer has a British Passport and effectively disowned the UK when she left.now she says she is on her own, and needs help, but do we and can we really believe her.
I fear not, if she was allowed to return she would be forever a suspect of turning once again against the UK and have we the full resources to ensure she will never be harmful to the UK, I feel the answer is No.
So I say she stays were she is.

Israel’s military said the explosions were a response to the launching of incendiary balloons that caused fires in fields in southern Israel.
Here we have the classic no trust on both sides, similar to what we had in Northern Ireland, which is still not fully sorted, but peace has been kept to a major degree.
Israel are still allowing israeli settlemen ts on what the Palestians believe to be their land, so there needs to be some show of faith from Israel, otherwise nothing will ever be sorted. One side has to show contrition to show they can be trusted.
If there was one on whom I would expect this to be so, would be the Jewish faith for over the years they have and are still being subjected to acts against them, but they need to take the lead and to not be so distracted by act against them. To bomb Gaza as they are doing is way above the acts from Hamas. Surely a toned down response could be put in place.
It is easy for me to say, for I am not involved in either side, but in some instances eyes of others can be an advantage. This is so because the acts so far are not easing the situation just maintaining it and could well be making it much worse.

Confused over regulations, Home Office border staff meet legitimate visitors and workers with suspicion
This very extremely worrying for we do really need anyone who is willing to work in the UK, especially within the care profession, which is extremely short of people willing to provide care. The need for care within the UK has been increasing for many years, and now even more so with COVID, for long COVID is creating many more areas for people needing care to lead reasonable lives.
Foe many years the professions has been relying on non-UK labour and while in the EU had a contant supply of care workers coming in and supplemented by workers from other areas of the world. But since Brexit the availability of workers from the EU has been limited, in many ways due to EU workers not trusting the UK to keep it word. With these latest areas of unlawful restrictions being imposed by Border Force officals it would appear this mistrust is justified.
This needs to be sorted, URGENTLY, for the current state of Social Care in the UK can’t continue without these workers being allowed to enter the UK, be they from the UK or other world areas. My daughter recieves 24/7 care and a good 90% of the carers coming to her are non-UK care workers. Without them she will be unable to live, so these Border Force officials are not just stopping people entering the UK, but their illegal actions, are also causing unnecessary hurt and suffering for persons in need of care, but will in time cause their deaths. Will the relatives of the persons in need of care have a case to prosecute Border Force and even specific individuals, I so hope so for these illegal actions need to stop immediately and if not legal actions should commence.
There has to be accountability and seen accountability.
