In just 24 hours, 38,000 people say they will protest Trump’s visit to the UK
It’s official. The giant tangerine is blessing our shores with his presence. On Friday 13 July. You really couldn’t make it up. But the bad news for Trump is that he really isn’t welcome. In less than 24 hours since the announcement was made, and at the time of writing, 38,000 people on Facebook said they’d attend the protests. A further 109,000 said they were interested.

Yes, this is Facebook. And yes, Facebook figures for people attending events are unreliable. But it gives an indication. The protests will be massive. And Trump won’t be happy. He’s cancelled his previous travel plans because of …

Renowned Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg recently spoke about a US war plan he was party to when he worked at the Pentagon. He exposed that the US knew its plan would kill 600 million people for starters – including 100 million of its European allies.

Leaked documents have revealed an ‘acute crisis’ for millions of disabled people
A report leaked to a national newspaper has revealed an ‘acute crisis’ for disabled people in England. Sadly, its findings will be unsurprising to many. Because organisations have repeatedly warned that disabled people are already living on a knife-edge.

An “acute housing crisis” The Telegraph obtained a copy of a report by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) into the state of housing for elderly and disabled people. According to The Telegraph, the main points of the report …

While the media went gaga over a baby, a new nightmare unfolded for the government
The Duchess of Cambridge had a baby on 23 April. And, as expected, Britain’s media lapped up the not so extraordinary event of a woman giving birth.

While we were being fed every useless detail of Kate Middleton’s labour, however, the UK government got its own delivery – of some very damning news. The sort of news, in fact, which raises questions about whether …
