Strictly's Stacey Dooley SLAMMED by MP for her Comic Relief work

Strictly Come Dancing champion and TV documentary maker Stacey Dooley has been slammed by Labour MP David Lammy, who has criticised her for her trip to Uganda for Comic Relief.

The 31-year-old investigative reporter had travelled to Africa to film a documentary for the charity but the MP for Tottenham has accused Stacey of perpetuating "tired and unhelpful stereotypes".

Stacey had shared pictures on her social media from Uganda, with one snap showing her posing with a young child while another showed her during filming ahead of Red Nose Day.

Mr Lammy, who has been the MP for the north London borough since 2010, said on Twitter that Stacey was reinforcing unhelpful stereotypes about Africa. He said: "The world does not need any more white saviours. As I've said before, this just perpetuates tired and unhelpful stereotypes. Let's instead promote voices from across the continent of Africa and have serious debate."

Mr Lammy said his issue was not personal with Stacey and that he does not question her "good motives". Instead, he said he had a problem with 'British celebrities' being flown out to Africa by Comic Relief to make films which send "a distorted image" of the continent and perpetuate "an old idea from the colonial era".

Shamima Begum: Bring me home, says Bethnal Green girl who left to join Isis

On the day the caliphate suffered a mortal blow the teenage London bride of an Islamic State fighter lifted her veil. Her two infant children were dead; her husband in captivity. Nineteen years old, nine months pregnant, weak and exhausted from her escape across the desert, she nevertheless looked calm and spoke with a collected voice.

“I’m not the same silly little 15-year-old schoolgirl who ran away from Bethnal Green four years ago,” she told me. “And I don’t regret coming here.”

With those words and the act of lifting her niqab, a mystery ended. The girl sitting before me, alone in a teeming Syrian refugee camp of 39,000 people where she is registered as No 28850, was Shamima Begum, the only known survivor of the three schoolgirls from Bethnal Green Academy whose fate has been unknown at home since they fled Britain together in 2015 to join Islamic State.

Ms Begum may have reached comparative safety, yet she chastised herself for leaving the last Isis territory as Kurd forces, backed by the West, closed in.

“I was weak,” she told me of her flight from the battle in Baghuz, with something akin to remorse. “I could not endure the suffering and hardship that staying on the battlefield involved. But I was also frightened that the child I am about to give birth to would die like my other children if I stayed on. So I fled the caliphate. Now all I want to do is come home to Britain.”


Should someone who quite clearly doesn't regret going to join ISIS and is still sympathetic to their plight be allowed back in this country? Then again, she'd already been 'radicalised' by those closest to her in this country.

Counter-terror police are investigating three packages containing explosives found at Heathrow Airport, London City Airport and Waterloo station.

The "small improvised explosive devices" were found in A4 postal bags, the Metropolitan Police said. The Met's Counter Terrorism Command is treating it as a "linked series" and "keeping an open mind regarding motives".

No-one has been hurt, the force added.

The Compass Centre in Heathrow's grounds was evacuated after a package was reported to police at about 09:55 GMT. The device set alight when staff opened the bag.


The IRA are up to their old tricks, the little scamps.

>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.

The intersectionalists know the rhetoric well enough of the left yet they choose to ignore the greatest defining factor of power, wealth. The answer is simple; This is not empowerment for the masses but for the elite, the most telling factor is the obsession with CEOs a group so niche and powerful anyway that the idea I should weep for the female CEO that she isn't paid as much as the male should be laughably insulting, and yet this is the obsession.

A female CEO who earns £10 million a year while a man in a similar position gets £15m is hardly below the poverty line. It's all a mater of perspective, as I think we are agreeing upon here.

Also, we have to ask ourselves whether it is really such a fundamental mark of equality of society that there exists such a thing as gender parity in boardrooms. What is true enough is that women should have the same opportunities as men. A woman who wants to assume a leadership role within a company should get to do so if she is qualified and puts in enough hard work to get there. Just as any man. But in the end, when you look at surveys, being at the top of a company or corporation just isn't a career goal that is as widespread among women as it is among men. A lot of women say they will be just as happy with a career that either doesn't demand quite as much of them, or where they have more time to spend with their family and all that kind of thing. So in essence the problem then isn't that there are too few women in top executive positions, but that it just isn't what as many women want for themselves as men tend to do.

The Norwegians were among the first countries to mandate gender parity in top executive positions, but the problem is that there just aren't enough qualified and ambitious women to fill all those positions, at least not up to actual parity. So the Norwegians have now coined the term "golden skirts", which means that women get to go to the top simply because otherwise there just wouldn't be enough women to fill the required quota.

But that's a problem you see on a lot of social political issues. The idea of equal opportunity gets confused with the idea of equal results. And having gender parity in boardrooms is not the same as equal opportunity. You've got equal results, but that doesn't mean everything's peachy. And if I remember correctly, the actual economic performance as a company or corporation has proved to not really be significantly better just because there are more women at the helm. At least there is no strong correlation indicating that companies with boardroom gender parity are doing better than others.

You've made three paragraphs trying to discredit an idea that really should be simpler to tackle to that. After all, when was the last time you heard of an executive, male or female, who wasn't a sleazy weasel bastard who back-stabbed and arse-licked their way to the top? These are the same people who drive companies bankrupt and run off with the pensions, it's hardly a laudable ideal in life.

Modern feminism isn't about equality at all. It's not even about feminism. It's just another tool of division and manufactured consent.

17827 Indian man to sue parents for giving birth to him

>A 27-year-old Indian man plans to sue his parents for giving birth to him without his consent.

>Mumbai businessman Raphael Samuel told the BBC that it's wrong to bring children into the world because they then have to put up with lifelong suffering.

>Mr Samuel, of course, understands that our consent can't be sought before we are born, but insists that "it was not our decision to be born".

>So as we didn't ask to be born, we should be paid for the rest of our lives to live, he argues.

>A demand like this could cause a rift within any family, but Mr Samuel says he gets along very well with his parents (both of whom are lawyers) and they appear to be dealing with it with a lot of humour.

>In a statement, his mother Kavita Karnad Samuel explained her response to "the recent upheaval my son has created".

>"I must admire my son's temerity to want to take his parents to court knowing both of us are lawyers. And if Raphael could come up with a rational explanation as to how we could have sought his consent to be born, I will accept my fault," she said.

17622 Leslie Jones Slams New 'Ghostbusters' Film: "It's Like Something Trump Woul Locked

In response to the news that Jason Reitman's new Ghostbusters project will continue the story that began with Ivan Reitman's 1984 original and its 1989 sequel — and ignore the female reboot from director Paul Feig in 2016 — Leslie Jones, a castmember from the latter, has voiced her disappointment on social media.

The comedian on Saturday took to Twitter in a post that said, "So insulting. Like fuck us. We dint count. It's like something trump would do. (Trump voice) "Gonna redo ghostbusteeeeers, better with men, will be huge. Those women ain't ghostbusteeeeers" ugh so annoying. Such a dick move. And I don't give fuck I'm saying something!!"

That was the first link I found in a 30 second web search of the relevant terms, I remember more around the time, but I don't care enough to look for more as I don't think they would be true scotsmen either.

17479 Nurse who 'got patient in coma pregnant may have abused her countless times

A male nurse who allegedly got a severely disabled patient pregnant may have abused her countless times, police said.

Nathan Sutherland, 36, who was employed at the Hacienda HealthCare centre in Phoenix, Arizona, was arrested today after his DNA "matched the baby".

The 29-year-old mother was a patient at the 60-bed care facility and has been in a vegetative state for 14 years after nearly drowning.

A massive investigation was launched following the birth on December 29, with police gathering DNA samples from male employees at the facility as they tried to determine who had assaulted the patient.

Sutherland, a licensed practical nurse, has worked at the site since 2011 and was charged with sexual assault and vulnerable adult abuse.

I once participated in a protest against a number of companies. That group included one that was a substantial client of my then-employer. I wasn't particularly loud, and hadn't identified myself in any particular way, but did get caught in the background on some local news footage, which some busybody brought to the attention of management. A meeting with HR was scheduled to discuss the matter. I told them I'd accept the charge in return for 128 hours per week back pay, and a similar uplift going forward. The meeting was swiftly cancelled and the matter never spoken of again in the year before I left.

It isn't my company.
Thinking about it a bit, I might point out that employers implicitly commandeer people's online presence for their [employer's] benefit, implicitly or explicitly. Implicit grinds my gears more.
I'm done with pedantry for a while.
