Tories vote to tear up sleaze rules after MP found guilty of paid lobbying | The Independent


Result shows Tories ‘rotten to the core’, says Labour’s Angela Rayner

 

==========================================

Over the years there have been a number of MPs suspended from Parliament for numerous reasons, but was there a request for appeal for those MPs.

I say this because there being no appeals system is supposed to be the reason the Tories have taken this action, rather than trying to stop a suspension. But this is casting doubt on their actions for to most people it looks as though they are supporting sleaze whether they are or not.

This reason would have been more believed if they had acted so when the person in question was not a Conservative MP, so I can see why people are convinced it is not the real reason. So, which view is correct, well can it ever be proved, but by doing so, it again gives rise to query a Conservative action, when there have been so many recently.

It is commendable to show support to your colleagues, but it is even more commendable to show support to those who are not your colleagues.

So, if the body who looks at misconduct is changed and changed immediately, as there has to been somebody looking at conduct, and the same result occurs will Boris and some of his MPs then accept the results, I some how do not believe so, especially when the new body is being mooted to have a majority of Conservative MPs. This does not look as being ideal, but as we can see not all Conservative MPs agree with the Governments decision and this has to be looked at as being encouraging.

Sleaze is never acceptable as it give more support to the public to believe all MPs are guilty of sleaze and therefore considerable mistrust of the UK ruling body.

In some ways this can be seen in the actions of Prince Andrew and his actions of not being open to contact the US Judicial authorities and this is showing a great disrespect for his Mother, Queen Elizabeth II, in her age, her position and gives an impression that he only carers about himself and that he feels he has privilege above all others, just in the same way as this ruling Government.

All in this respect are certainly guilty of arrogance and abuse of power, assumed or not.

Sport loves athletes with mental health issues – if they just shut up and play | Marina Hyde | The Guardian


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

UK like an ‘enemy state’ to EU nationals detained by Border Force | Brexit | The Guardian


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.

I beg your pardon? Does Trump really plan to absolve himself and his family? | US news | The Guardian


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.
