16485 UK austerity has inflicted 'great misery' on citizens, UN says

The UK government has inflicted “great misery” on its people with “punitive, mean-spirited, and often callous” austerity policies driven by a political desire to undertake social re-engineering rather than economic necessity, the United Nations poverty envoy has found.

Philip Alston, the UN’s rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, ended a two-week fact-finding mission to the UK with a stinging declaration that levels of child poverty were “not just a disgrace, but a social calamity and an economic disaster”, even though the UK is the world’s fifth largest economy,

About 14 million people, a fifth of the population, live in poverty and 1.5 million are destitute, being unable to afford basic essentials, he said, citing figures from the Institute for Fiscal Studies and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. He highlighted predictions that child poverty could rise by 7% between 2015 and 2022, possibly up to a rate of 40%.

“It is patently unjust and contrary to British values that so many people are living in poverty,” he said, adding that compassion had been abandoned during almost a decade of austerity policies that had been so profound that key elements of the postwar social contract, devised by William Beveridge more than 70 years ago, had been swept away.

Exactly. I do not care if there are vacancies, if they are minimum wage zero hours contracts in London or in the middle of nowhere in Scotland I am not going to go. I would spend more in travel and living expenses than what pitiful wage I would get.

>There will always be people at the bottom of the scrapheap and it's up to you to ensure you don't end up there; there's no excuses.
See, this tips right back in the other direction. It might be cathartic to say "there's no excuses" to avoid confronting that life is bollocks, but if there's always going to be someone at the bottom of the scrapheap then clearly there is an excuse: It's inevitable. It's baked into the system. "Just be better at competing to not wind up in that position!" leads you to the position we're in now of insecure, unknown hours, low-paid work so that you can be marginally above the very bottom.

Just because you can't point to one individual and blame them doesn't mean it's not the fault of the system we've got at the moment, and the responsibility of those in power to change that system to better meet human needs.
Alternatively, let's say fuck it and go back to organising ourselves like the Romans.

The structural existence of the poor. When you move away from the mathematical definition (which is just an attempt to approximate it), there isn't strictly a need for people to be in relative poverty. You could theoretically have a society in which everyone is able to live around the average standard of living, where nobody's struggling to get by. Once we're saying "He works 30 hours a week and can't afford a holiday to Australia without saving for a year!" rather than "He works 50 hours a week and can't afford a new Freezer!" we'll know we've arrived.

Alternatively, and much less theoretically, the arbitrary and luck-based structure of opportunity. Actually try to give everyone a fair chance and encouragement through some big, integrated, overarching guidance, education and employment system. Make it so that if you work hard and try your best, you really will get ahead, and make people know the avenue is open.

We still have a labour surplus. When everyone learns a trade, who the hell is going to stack the shelves at Tesco? When we've got labour scarcity, Tesco will bid up wages and all will be well - but until then you're pushing on a string. You can't say "Everyone has a chance to do better!" and then build a society dependent on some people not doing any better.

Common scenario:

Somebody wants to hire an employee to do the job of X, which may well require a uni degree and five years of experience. The catch is, when you go there for a job interview as somebody who has the degree in X and five, or any number of years of experience, they will tell you that your (reasonable) salary aspirations are far beyond what they are prepared to pay you, and for the meager pay they want to give you, you are going to have to work 50 to 60 hours. Or if you exceed the criteria mentioned in the ad, they will say you are overqualified for the job in the first place.

It's pretty much standard folklore nowadays that many companies want highly skilled staff at the biggest possible discount. And they will blag you into it any way they can. And now let's talk again about how being poor or at least not earning what you are worth is your own fault for not trying hard enough. To avoid going on the dole, many people will eventually cave in and take up a job like that where the work conditions aren't short of an insult to their education and qualification. Precisely because they are ambitious, they will agre to taking up a shit job in the distant hope that somewhere down the line they will get to make something better of themselves again. And employers are exploiting it.

>It's pretty much standard folklore nowadays that many companies want highly skilled staff at the biggest possible discount.
As a highly skilled individual currently looking for work, I can confirm this. I've had more than one employer come back and say they can't meet my very reasonable salary expectations. Conferring with peers has confirmed that, without exception, said employers were not the sort I'd want to work for. By contrast, those employers that were of the sort I'd want to work for invariably turned me down because they didn't have a vacancy I'd fit into.

And once you've taken the bait and agree to work for much less than you are worth, they will keep telling you that if you put your back into it, you will get a raise in no time at all. But then when the time comes to ask for that raise on account that you've proved yourself as a good employee, they will tell you that the company's current situation doesn't allow it, or any excuse they manage to come up with. And so the cycle continues...

Manchester Evening News: Aldi refused to sell alcohol to this 66-year-old because his 26-year-old daughter was with him.


"I wanted to take this up because of the offence caused to my daughter. I'm not bothered about me, but I'm fuming about what they did to her.

"What I want from the is a public apology and for them to review their policy.

"I'd also like them to give my daughter a £50 gift token or something like it, to say sorry."

>Drag queens banned from performing at Free Pride Glasgow event over fears acts will offend trans people


>The organisation said in a statement that it hopes to create a safe space for all members of the LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, intersex, asexual) community, and that while the decision may "disappoint" some people "the needs of the most marginalised groups within our community come first."


>Free Pride Glasgow said: “It was felt that it [drag performance] would make some of those who were transgender or questioning their gender uncomfortable. It was felt by the group within the Trans/Non Binary Caucus that some drag performance, particularly cis drag, hinges on the social view of gender and making it into a joke, however transgender individuals do not feel as though their gender identity is a joke.”

Life rarely takes the piss out of itself like this. It almost sounds like the plot of a South Park episode.

Mother, 46, left paralysed after being 'catapulted' from super-king sized bed during sex with her partner battles for £1m compensation because the divan was an inch-and-a-half lower on one side

A mother-of-four who was left paralysed after falling from a super-king size bed during sex has launched a legal battle for £1million compensation.

Claire Busby, 46, suffered catastrophic spinal injuries when she fell backwards from her recently delivered double-divan in August 2013. Successful business woman Mrs Busby from Maidenhead said she was in bed naked with her then partner when the bizarre tragedy unfolded.

Mrs Busby, who was left tetraplegic and appeared in court in a wheelchair, claims the bed was missing two vital 'glider' feet when delivered, which created a 4cm difference in the height from one side to another. Mrs Busby, who ran a chain of hairdressing and beauty salons is suing Berkshire Bed Company Ltd - trading as Beds Are Uzzz - claiming the bed was 'defective'.

The salon owner said she was 'performing a sexual act' when she toppled over. 'I was positioned kneeling over him,' she explained, to Judge Barry Cotter QC. 'I was kneeling over him and my right hand was touching him, maybe my left hand was touching his leg. I was half way down the bed.'

The claimant said the 'missing gliders' caused a 'slope from head to foot' which caused her to lose balance as she changed position and she 'catapulted' to the floor. At the time she was attempting to 'swing her legs towards the top of the bed', she told the High Court. 'I span around and put my hand down and then I felt as if I was catapulted off the back of the bed,' she said. 'My head hit the floor and I fell to the side and heard a spring in my body snap.'

Her QC, Winston Hunter, said two missing 'gliders' created a hazardous height difference between the bottom end of the left and right divans. 'At its maximum this difference would be 40mm,' he told the judge. This had the effect of creating 'an enhanced, albeit localised, slope at the edge of the mattress', the barrister argued.

Explaining the dynamics of the accident, he went on: 'She had been performing a sex act and, thereafter, she sat up with the intention of swinging her legs forward underneath her - and lying on her back with feet towards the headboard and her head towards the end of the bed. 'Her case is that, having taken the weight off her body through her buttocks, she lay back with the expectation that the mattress would support the weight of her upper torso and her head and shoulders. However, as she placed her weight through her upper body onto the mattress it failed to support her weight, and she continued moving backwards and downwards. The effect of this movement was that her head and upper torso came off the edge of the bed, and she slid to the floor with the weight of her body and legs rotating into a vertical position and forcing the weight of the same through her neck.'

16417 Girl Scouts sue Boy Scouts over planned name change

The Girl Scouts of the United States of America have filed a lawsuit against the Boy Scouts of America for dropping "boy" from the scout group's name.

The Boy Scouts of America announced in May they would rename the Boy Scouts programme Scouts BSA as they prepare to allow girls as members.

But the Girl Scouts say the change could erode their brand, calling the move "uniquely damaging" to them.

Their lawsuit seeks damages and an injunction against trademark breaches.

"Only GSUSA has the right to use the Girl Scouts and Scouts trademarks with leadership development services for girls," papers filed in a Manhattan federal court said.

The switch could "marginalise" the Girl Scouts, the complaint reads. It reportedly says the switch has already caused confusion, with some believing their organisation had merged with the Boy Scouts.

16317 Ryanair's new hand luggage policy slated on social media

Ryanair’s latest change to its cabin baggage policy has triggered plenty of criticism on social media.

Europe’s biggest low-cost airline has reduced the amount that passengers can take through security to the departure gate without paying extra. Instead of one large and one small bag, travellers are restricted to one “mid-sized” bag.

To carry anything more substantial, they will either need to buy Priority Boarding or pay a fee for checking in luggage.

I had one teacher I fancied, a lot. Redhead, no older than mid twenties, always wore tight black clothes. We got on very well.

As an adult looking back, I'm pretty sure she was open to the idea of shagging a student. Even though I was shagging a fair few girls my age at the time, I was still a naive teenage and didn't pick up on the fact that she'd comment on the reputation I had with the girls, what I was wearing, how I'd obviously started going to the gym, she even said something vaguely snide about a girlfriend once; things like that.

I would fully have understood the intention behind such comments from a girl my age, but I suppose for whatever reason I just ignored it coming from a teacher as I just assumed that no 'adult' would be interested in some edgy seventeen year old.

Maybe it's just my memories being exaggerated now and I'm wrong, but the more stories like this I read the more I think, maybe not.

I'm sure it's for the best I didn't shag her but it would have been great, wouldn't it? If you're reading this, Miss Hallat, give us a ring, I'm legal now, if that doesn't ruin it for you.

I think it's just the blouse and coat that make her look older.

When I was starting out in the job world after uni, my senior coworkers at my first job, although only a good five to ten years older than me, really looked very old to me in their suit and tie they wore every day. About six months later when we all met in casual wear for a company picnic on a spring weekend, they really actually didn't look so old anymore while we were all kicking a ball around in shorts and T-shirt.

Formal wear can really add some years to your appearance. Just take a good look at your own pictures for comparison.

Not being funny, but if you actually set out to shout through a megaphone how much you want to gas others and imply that it's a promise, the powers that be will take you as seriously as you want. You can fuck about in court insisting "oh it was only roleplay" as much as you want (as those twats have), fact of the matter is there will be a bigger price to pay if a looney does go out and fulfil that promise of killing someone they perceive to be the enemy.

Now he's planning a party to celebrate 100 days then says he'll hand himself in.

Twenty members of a “vile and wicked” grooming gang have been convicted of trafficking, drugging and raping vulnerable girls in a harrowing campaign of abuse across West Yorkshire. It can now be reported that the ringleader of the group, 35-year-old Amere Singh Dhaliwal, was jailed for life to serve a minimum of 18 years after being found guilty of 54 offences, including countless rapes of children.

Judge Geoffrey Marson QC said the crimes against 15 girls far exceeded anything he had previously seen. The gang’s “persistent and prolonged” offending, he said, was “at the top of the scale” of severity.

Details of the case, believed to be Britain’s single biggest grooming prosecution, can be disclosed after a judge agreed to lift reporting restrictions on Friday, following a legal challenge by media groups including the Guardian. One of the trials had previously almost collapsed when the anti-Islam activist Tommy Robinson filmed defendants in a live Facebook video outside Leeds crown court.

Jurors in the three trials heard how the men, mostly from Huddersfield, plied girls as young as 11 with alcohol and drugs before sexually abusing them in car parks, hotels, takeaways, snooker halls, on moors and by reservoirs across the region.

Fifteen severely vulnerable girls fell victim to the gang between 2004 and 2011. One girl, aged 11 or 12 at the time, was abducted from a care home and supplied ecstasy before being made to perform sex acts, Leeds crown court heard. Many of the victims described how they were plied with drink and drugs at house parties then raped “one by one” by the men, who used plastic bags as condoms.

Dhaliwal was at the heart of the group, who referred to each other using nicknames including “Dracula,” “Beastie” and “Chiller” in monikers that were used in the three trials.

The girls were deliberately targeted for their vulnerabilities. All had troubled home lives, including one whose mother was unable to care for her due to drink and drug addictions.

It's funny how, reading about Edge of the City, the UAF only got involved after the BNP started promoting the documentary in advance of its broadcast and calling it a "party political broadcast". The way you've written it is to suggest well-meaning people were allowing the BNP to exploit it by pre-emptively campaigning against it, when the BNP were exploiting it anyway.

Oh, we're on to semantics. Fantastic.

No, as I said, >>16175 is arguing that 'banning discussion of controversial topics allows the far-right to gain ground', and I'm undermining that facile premise by pointing out they have their facts wrong.

Channel 4 made clear that they did not delay broadcast because of the BNP bandwagoning. It was due to lobbying from the likes of UAF and eventually the police. It's semantics due to your interpretation twisting what was said solely to suit the point being made.

You're being incredibly myopic by only focussing on the documentary. The BNP were making a lot of noise about child grooming for the better part of a decade before the Rotherham scandal was unveiled. It was barely discussed in the meantime and it's exactly this what the far-right look to exploit; it gives them unwarranted credibility. It is exactly the same tactics Tommy Robinson is disingenuously using over Huddersfield. You do not give these people the opportunity to paint themselves as victims.

Details of this particular example aside, this is EXACTLY how grassroots movements build. People become far more interested in politics, and entrenched in their views, when they feel they're being suppressed. It adds a lot of momentum.

Websleuths are on their fifth thread about it, closing the first four after about 55 pages. They seem to be censoring anyone saying Jayme might have done it though. I don't know how a 13-year-old could be such a ninja at hiding if she did.

The door was kicked in. She probably wouldn't kick the door in herself, to fake evidence, before scarpering. The police arrived four minutes after the 911 call.

There was a case where Joseph Edward Duncan III broke into a house, killed the mother, father and older brother, and made off with the two youngest kids.
