Impact of government policy on homelessness (and related things)
at 09:47 9 Dec 2019

There's been some toing and froing around homelessness and poverty on here lately, but I can't find the threads. There seemed to be a bit of a mismatch between people saying poverty & homelessness hasn't increased despite obvious empirical evidence of rises in foodbank use, rises in poverty in the poorest households, etc.

A new study out from Warwick Uni that sheds a bit more light on the matter. Fairly daming on central government - policies leading to massive increases in forced evictions, burdening councils. I thought it was quite enlightening and helps fill in a few gaps between the links between policy and some of the high profile impacts we see in the news.

And if so, do you know how to make the bases so they are round and not some weird parallelogram with knobs on (behave at the back)? This is important.

Eu citizens in the UK
at 10:16 10 Oct 2019

2016:
A promise made by Michael Gove, Boris Johnson and Priti Patel:
"there will be no change for EU citizens already lawfully resident in the UK. These EU citizens will automatically be granted indefinite leave to remain in the UK and will be treated no less favourably than they are at present."
http://www.voteleavetakecontrol.org/restoring_public_trust_in_immigration_policy

2019:


Now given that Johnson is now the PM and Patel is the Home Sec, shouldn't we be holding them to those promises?

To an outsider, Labour seem to be imploding
at 22:34 20 Sep 2019

Excluding the ongoing antisemitism row (plenty of threads on that), in the last 36 hours alone they’ve:
- had a row over labour youth group, and disbanded it
- attacked the hugely experienced Harriet Harmon and are lining up to oust her at the next GE, because she’s standing as a candidate to be the next Speaker
- and now have tried to oust Tom Watson despite him being labour through and through https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-49776100

What the eff are they doing over there? They’ve got a ruling party scoring the biggest own goals in decades or a Century+, literally, yet they don’t seem able to focus on trying to beat them. It’s thoroughly bizarre.

Crowd crime figures released today
at 18:08 19 Sep 2019

I can’t see a thread on it, but he good news is number of arrests across all grounds was down last year. The bad news is a spike in hate crime, especially racially motivated. Slightly mitigated by new recording procedures affecting the numbers but the increase in recorded racism is being quoted as worrying by the various player and fan bodies (as you’d expect).

Shame this curse is creeping back into the game when otherwise their seems to be less trouble.

Arf. If you're going to lie about disregarding efforts to investigate child sex abuse, I could think of better places to do it than the centre of one of the UK's biggest grooming scandals.
