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.

"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."

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.

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.

This guy has been on the run from the police for 94 days after breaking a court order.
During that time he's been posting to Facebook giving the police clues about where he is, he's filmed himself driving up the M6 behind a police car for miles, and apparently has been caught and ran away again.
Now he's planning a party to celebrate 100 days then says he'll hand himself in.
It's a shame that he doesn't seem to have reached national news.

Huddersfield grooming gang jailed for abusing vulnerable girls

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".

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.

Yeah we fully invented ISIS, and I'm more or less certain that our governments intended them to exist as a destabilising force in the region.

We were the ones selling weapons to Assad's opponents five or six years ago, and then what do you know, ISIS popped up out of nowhere like the rebels on a Total War campaign map. Suddenly the media narrative changed and we never heard a thing about the fact we'd been selling weapons ever again.

It's the curse of the oil and other fossil resources. What goes on in the Middle East today is still the consequence of Britain, the U.S. and other countries liberally dividing the Middle East up among themselves into different client states and effectively oil supplier countries that fuelled much of Western industrial and technological development from the early 20th century onwards. Does anybody think that otherwise, the U.S. and Britain would have given a toss about some nomadic desert peoples that still lived in archaic tribal communities like they had been doing for milleniae, and to whom even the concept of a nation state was entirely foreign?

It was the oil beneath their feet that meant the West had a vested interest in the region and decided to install an assortment of client state governments that would ensure a secure and steady supply of crude oil. Whatever else these often despotic regimes were doing, nobody really cared about as long as the oil kept coming. It was only when some of those corrupt leaders turned rogue and bit the hand that had been feeding them, or were overthrown by revolutionary governments that the West declared it a humanitarian duty to step in, while at the same time accepting zero responsibility for the events that had led up to whatever mess was unfolding.

IMO the article can be summed up as
>You don't know yer born, lad.
When in fact, I do. I grew up in communist Poland, I know what hunger and actual propaganda look like and this reads like the shit my Primary School teachers used to chat bollocks about. We got told people in Germany were poor and had no food and that, actually, we were quite well off in comparison because we had so much potatoes. My Dad managed to get out to Sweden to work, which was allowed in the 90s to avoid the draft, and he taught us it was bollocks.

Beware the BBC, lads. They're not the bastion of impartiality of old. It's misleading shit like this, I feel, that makes people want us out, as we recognise it for what it is and it gets their backs up. I'm a British citizen now, I have two passports, but if you see us heading back to shitholes like Lublin rather than tough it out, you're less appealing than a post-communist block country with endemic corruption in society.

Yeah, reporting that the UK has 8% cheaper food, when expressed as a share of income, than the EU average (which includes the likes of Greece) is of a similar ilk to claiming the third richest country in the world is in famine.

Slide the bullshit down with a spoonful of truthful sugar, m9. It's indicitive of the kind of thing I used to see a lot of. When prices shoot up, you'll see a lot of "realistic rebalancing of costs" and calls to "tighten our belts" now we're out of the evil EU. Medicines nd food being scarce will be the EU's fault, we're already seeing Jeremy Hunt liken them to Soviet despots. "Actually, a lot of countries support us but big bad Germany wont let them!" when that's catigorical bollocks. The BBC reports this stuff without challenging it already, the amount of limp-wristed soft questions Politicians get on the BBC nowadays is laughable.

You should see the stuff BBC Scotland gets up to as well, Ofcom has had to investiagte them for anti-SNP bias twice after they ruled themselves fair an impartial via internal processes.

That's all hauntingly familiar and what I would expect of the likes of the Daily Mail, not the BBC which is supposed to be a pillar of trust in our society.

Dodging down alleys to hide from the military police to avoid getting drafted was an every day occurrence for a lot of young men. Lublin was especially grim, but it at least had a vibrant underground music scene.

Me calling Lublin shit is the equivalent of Edinburgh natives calling it a shithole, when I think it's lovely.

I heard that one too. Belongs in the realm of taking acid and turning into an orange or glass of orange juice. Wonder what makes certain urban legends stick around and others not.

>I think I'd worry more about temperature than oxygen.

That, too. Temperatures inside the uterus should be pretty close to a human body's normal core temperature, and lobsters usually live in temperate waters that don't go much above 20-24 °C. At least not the familiar North Atlantic species that you get to buy in stores most of the time. Maybe some tropical species exist that can handle water temperatures of 30 °C, but again... a lady's private parts just don't seem like a good environment for lobster eggs to develop.

Chap with awkward silences on /emo/ should use it as a conversation starter.
Note: No, he really shouldn't.

That seems like a great idea for the chap to try out.
Note: maybe not.

15880 Holiday hero slammed for expecting compensation after saving two children

>Hundreds of people have responded to a man who wants compensation for saving two children from drowning on holiday.

>Steven Tartt, from Seaforth , leapt into action when he spotted two children, a boy, aged seven, and girl, aged six, struggling in the water at the Victoria Playa hotel in Santo Tomas in Menorca.

>The dad-of-two hauled the kids to safety and was furious that the on duty lifeguard, who has since been dismissed, failed to respond to the emergency.

>Two months later, Steven has expressed his disgust that he was not compensated, claiming his holiday was "ruined" by the emergency.

What a fucking cunt.

A local councillor saved someone from choking then went on Facebook and made a post starting "I did something remarkable today" then went to the press about it. Way to save someone's life in the most arseholeish way possible. I'd be the one the family would be making public appeals to saying "can you come forward so we can thank you?" and I'd be like "A ha... No."

I wonder if this guy went to the press himself. They might have even paid him for his story.

When my older brother and I were weelads of 9 and 13 years of age, our parents took us to Sri Lanka. Swimming in the Indian Ocean there is constantly slightly dangerous, and on our beach, they pretty much never took down the red flag. But I guess it must have been relatively quiet that day, as our parents let us go in the water within their line of view. But at one point, my brother got caught in a high wave and lost his footing in the chest high water, and the currents began to take him out to sea. A couple from Leeds from our hotel happened to be near us in the water, and the man, a 50 year old, didn't hesitate for a second and went after my brother to rescue him and get him back to the shore. It really looked dramatic, and I remember I could see that my brother was really beginning to panic, flailing his arms and crying for help.

Anyway, the chap really may have saved my brother's life that day. Only he was so humble about it that he was almost embarrassed at the way my parents, who had seen the whole thing from dry land in complete horror, then came up to him and were overjoyed that he had saved my brother. He never wanted any kind of thanks or praise, he just said he was glad that he was in the right place at the right time at that moment. We kept in touch for many years. Very lovely couple.

I'm really surprised that nothing has been posted about this here. The EU is discussing and voting on a proposal which would require "online hosting providers" to actively monitor and filter all user-uploaded content. As far as I am aware, this is the biggest threat to the freedom of the internet that has ever existed. Are you lads already aware and just assuming that it won't pass because it's unworkable in practice?

And yet I'm sure there's a bore somewhere who'll point out that the speeds and patience you had to exercise with dialup to access those first pages of BBS interaction and grainy Scooby Doo porn actually played a big role in how much of an impression the internet made on you back then. Like vinyl nerds or vintage bike enthusiasts, the work you have to put in to every experience is an integral part of it, and gives it the lasting emotionality that instant access 500,000 YT videos all broadcast in 1080p just can't. Time is linear and finite for us mortal creatures, so naturally we seem to attach more importance to things which take up more of our rather fleeting lifespans, like marriage or the raising of our children to maturity.

Oh - hang on - it's me. I'm the bore. Oh.
