If any of your good lady wives or girlfriends are going through a tough time, you may be lucky enough to have a couple of magical things lying around the house they aren't aware of. Let them know and I'm sure you'll make a big impression. No need to thank me.
Remember some time last year when us lefty, centrist, and only slightly righty, liberal snowflakes jumped up and down about legislation Trump had brought in to strip environmental protections from coastal areas and some of the country's prime wilderness?
Well a new study has now been able to look at some of the impacts that his policies are now having. Depressing stuff really, given he's got a moral obligation to look after his country for future generations.
Some great pictures too - reminds me what a wonderful place America is despite some of the things that go on over there.
Nothing new there - it's done the same with the Post Office.
But then it gets worse.
The Government won't declare who it sold the debt to (including the debtors, which presumably is a breach of data protection too, although that's relatively minor in the grand scheme of things), leading the Select Committee to state "We are concerned about the lack of transparency to the public and Parliament surrounding this sale".
Some digging has been done and it appears that some of the debt may have been sold to Marston, a debt recovery organisation known for its 'persistent' debt recovery tactics (we can assume it will be recovering the full value of the debt, or near enough).
Marstons are owned, via an offshore vehicle, by a pivate equity group lead by a regular Tory donor.
I am aware that some of the Student Loan Book was being sold to a Tory donor connected group. John Hartz - repeated 50k donor - and an offshore tax haven involved.
I hadn’t realised Glasgow had been through this and how successful they’ve been in reducing knife murders to practically zero. I’ve no idea whether the situation in London would respond to the same measures, but must be worth a look.
