The grand slams say Naomi Osaka’s decisions about press are ‘injurious’ to tennis. Perhaps they should look closer to home, says Guardian columnist Marina Hyde
This all shows that the powers that be in sport, especially in Tennis do not care about people in sport, but are only there for their own interests and those of the media.
If these persons in power do not change then there could well be no participants in sport for tournaments to take place and they will only have themselves to blame.
Money and power are the root of all evil and will spoil the enjoyment of all concerned, the sport participants and the spectators of sports.
This will be the next area of abuse to be inspected, for we have already seen how participants have been treated by some trainers and managers in gymnastics
Money has taken over most sports and lead to great abuses of power or assumed power, the proposed Super league of top football clubs in Europe is another prime example

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.

So Trump is considering the use of his ability to grant pardons, not only to his children, but also himself and this just shows the clear reason for him to not hold the Office of President.
This would be a totally unjust use of power.
He is completely unsuitable to hold that Office and should be barred, as soon as possible, from ever holding that Office ever again.
