GOP Support For Impeachment Grows As Republicans Say They’ll Vote Against Trump | HuffPost UK


It would now appear that some Republicans in the Senate and Congress have now come to their senses and see Trump for what he is, no matter how belatedly this is.

For Trump has done and still is causing serious damage to the Republican Party, who now appear to see to it that Trump can never be elected to Governing Office again.

I feel it is forgone that the Impeachment resolution will have no problems coming through the Congress, but the hurdle will be the Senate.

Trump pledges ‘orderly’ transition after riot and Biden win certification – CNNPolitics


Trump pledges ‘orderly transition’, but does Trump understand what an ‘orderly transition’ means, for all his actions, currently, appear to show he does not.

For Trump does not understand ‘Law and Order’, unless it is law and order inline with Trump’s views. For as we saw yesterday he inspired his supporters to riot and invade the US Capitol and enter both the Senate and Congress and demean their authority.

This is not what should be expected from a President of America and shows even more so that he is unfit to hold such office, therefore the 25th Amendment needs to be enacted, immediately, to counter any other demeaning or even worse actions from Trump.

Everyone of his supporters who entered the US Capitol should be arrested and charged with criminal damage and actions to cause injury and even death of authorised persons who were in the US Capitol legally.

I would also query the actions of the Police and other forces who were supposed to stop this mob of Trump supporters from entering the US Capitol, but instated, appeared to stand back and allow them unofficial entry.

This action certainly does not correspond with the actions taken against ‘Black Lives Matter’, (BLM) and other such protests.

The actions of the Police and other security forces all over America  also need to be investigated, as there appears to be vast differences in how these forces deal with protests that are for Trump and those that are against him, is there some aspect of less engagement against the former and more intense engagement with the latter. This also appears to be the case in dealing with white and non-white persons, with the latter been dealt with more aggressively than the former.

Yesterday the Trump supporters and even Trump, acted as terrorists and they, all should be dealt with accordingly.

The lack of equality within America is there for all to see, for it appears to be the ‘Land of the Free’ depending on racial factors, instead for all.

The Human Rights for many in America appear to be in question.

Trump: Millions Of Americans Getting COVID-19 Is ‘Terrific’ And A ‘Powerful Vaccine’ | HuffPost UK


Trump at his worst, it is a pity there is no stop button on his mouth and Tweets, for this comment shows a complete indifference to those who have contracted COVID-19 and especially to those families who have had relatives who have died from COVID-19.

Even though he appeared to have had COVID-19 some months ago, or was this FAKE news to gain sympathy and a boost during the election period, his view of COVID-19 looks to be unchanged, in that he feels COVID-19 is not as bad as the medical experts are saying, even though the facts and figures show that it is a very serious condition causing many serious problems.

It is not just the short-term of COVID-19, but for many who have contracted COVID-19, it is the long-term conditions, which in some are extremely serious.

America and the World will not have much longer with a Trump Presidency, but the outcomes of his Presidency could have very serious effects, certainly on Americans but also all parts of the World.

For when he is the former President of America, what other mischief will he be involved with and what will the consequences be, for not only America, but all of us.

DfE to review children’s services’ approach to radicalisation : Community Care


The Department for Education (DfE) is to commission a review of the ways in which children’s services are responding to radicalisation and extremism among young people. Tender documents published this month seek applicants to conduct research within 10 English local authorities, updating on a 2016 safeguarding and radicalisation evaluation, which found divergent views around the extent […]

Are we all demanding too much from Social Workers, whose, workloads are already extremely excessive, with other safeguarding issues, not to mention issues relating to disabilities, families and many other areas, including funding.

Social work has always been a demanding area and the austerity cuts over the last 10 years of austerity cuts have not made this any easier, in fact, it as made it much harder.

Many social workers are crumbling under the various many pressures and many are leaving, expressing they will not work for local authorities again.

All this and other issues are causing major issues for the remaining social workers and will lead to mistakes being made, where the blame will mainly rest with the respective social workers, who in many instances are not being supported by their local authority management structures.

This, of course is happening within children services, but there are also many issues with transitions and then adult services where there are many failings and not only will the services suffer, but more importantly the persons and families who rely on these services.

This Government is currently throwing money in many directions and have done so to social services, but not in anywhere near sufficiently. Not even sufficiently to reverse the 10 years of austerity cuts, let alone the current pressures.

Social Care is indeed in crisis and is urgently in need of not only funding, but much more including an understanding of all the related problems.

I do fear that social care will cease to exist in any reliable form and this will create more pressures on those working in social care, families in need of social care, but also the health services, who may also have to deal with a second wave of COVID-19.

Not a very rosy picture and the time to deal with it are shortening hour by hour.

I created a petition, Solve the crisis in Social Care, https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/solve-the-crisis-in-social-care,which was with regards to social care delivery within the community.

More information, https://www.dropbox.com/s/9nurve8oev2rfrv/Solve%20the%20crisis%20in%20Social%20Care%209.docx?dl=0

I appreciate that this petition only covers a certain area of the problems and certainly not the issues raised in this article, but by supporting the petition it is a start and will bring pressure on the Government to do something, for currently they are doing nothing.

Social Care needs YOU
