Mum paralysed by stroke after M25 protest delayed trip to hospital by six hours – Mirror Online


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.

Crying Afghan girl shares fears of ‘dying slowly in history’ as her country is seized by Taliban | Daily Mail Online


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.

Spain’s Court of Auditors Claims Millions of Euros from 40 Former Catalan Officials


It appears that Spain is not as democratic as they lead us to believe, for they are acting as a dictatorship, ‘obeys us or we will destroy you ‘.

I assume they are doing this to ensure the Spanish Basques do not do something similar.

While Spain is governed in this tyrannical manner there will be no freedoms in Spain.

Josep Goded

On Tuesday, the conservative Spanish Court of Auditors claimed 5.4 million euros as financial guarantees from some 40 former Catalan government officials for allegedly promoting independence abroad from 2011 to 2017. These financial guarantees are additional to others previously requested by the same court.

In total, the auditing body claims from former president Artur Mas and former finance minister Andreu Mas-Colell 2.8 million euros, as well as 1.9 million euros from former president Carles Puigdemont and former vice president Oriol Junqueras. All this corresponds to allegedly irregular expenses in the framework of the promotion of the process of independence around the world.

The official most affected by this case is the former Secretary General of Diplocat, a semipublic consortium aimed at fostering Catalonia’s interests abroad, Albert Royo, who faces a claim of 3.6 million euros.

Former foreign affairs minister Raül Romeva faces 2.1 million euros and former government’s spokesperson Francesc…

‘Can I come home, pretty please?… I would love to help others’: New look jihadi bride Shamima Begum says she was a ‘dumb kid’ when she fled to Syria aged 15 – but insists she doesn’t need to be rehabilitated | Daily Mail Online


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.

Huge explosions rock Gaza as Israeli warplanes launch first airstrikes since ceasefire | Daily Mail Online


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.

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’.

‘Vintage white rage’: Why the riots were about the perceived loss of white power


The actions of supposed Trump supporters in Washington DC and their invasion of the US Capitol building and wanton destruction of areas within the building are a blight on Society.

These rioters or more correctly terrorists, feel they have lost or losing the right of white supremacy, but, in reality this assumed right should never have been there. In fact, supremacy of any racial element should never be allowed, for we all have a right to life and be respected in any country in which we reside. Colour, gender, religion, ethnicity and any other areas should not have a right to have power over others.

People have to learn to live together and that no one should have any supremacy over others.

The white settlers who populated what is now known as America, used their superior power to overcome the Native Americans and this again was not right, for the white settlers invaded any other country and did not respect the original inhabitants.

But this was at a time of Colonial power, when the Western Colonial powers used the superior fire power to invade and suppress the native in habitants of many countries, which they believed were inferior. But they were not inferior, but different and that should never be an excuse to discriminate against others.

With the forthcoming President Elect Joe Biden this is an opportunity for all Americans to show they can respect each other and be able to live together for the good of each other and America. In doing this they will set a good example to others in other counties of this World and by doing so, will show that America is Great, but not Great Again, for they were never Great only assumed Great due to the abuse of power they exerted on others.

The isolationism shown by Trump is and never was Great for America, but by showing respect for each other Great can be said.

Lets all embrace togetherness and do not look on the bad examples of the past on the way to live now. The past can never be changed, now and the future can be.

Capitol breach prompts urgent questions about security failures – The Washington Post


This was and is a disgraceful state of affairs, but it has been coming ever since Trump joined the Presidential election of 2016 and even more so since he became President.

The Republican Party has by degree or design allowed him enormous leeway and Trump is adept in using this to his advantage, in fact, believing that it amounts to acceptance of his actions.

In fact, in viewing some of the actions of the law enforcement at the US Capital building it may even be true that they are in agreement with Trump. This is especially so, when barriers were removed by some law officers, thereby offering even more encouragement to Trump’ mob.

This action by Trump and his supporters has been forecast for sometime and now it has come to fruition.

If the required actions are not taken against Trump and his supporters, then this can only get worse.

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.
