I'm of the opinion that the taxpayer should NOT be paying for luxury for someone else! What's wrong with plain, simple & clean?

We've seen two instances of Tory "Justice" in a week of £1.5 billion payments for votes, dodgy deals and a £20,000 luxury flight for the DUP leader!

She sure sounds like a piece of work alright!

Seeing her on our news is not impressive.

Damn right I think Theresa Mays grubby DUP deal is illegal and this is why!

Yes, we heard little about Scotland, but heard plenty about N. Ireland.

Comment by Stephen on July 1, 2017 at 4:29pm

Yea for too long Scotland has been racked by sectarian strife between Catholics and protestants almost but not quite as bad as Northern Ireland. 

Comment by Mrs.B on July 1, 2017 at 3:34pm

Sounds good for Scotland!

#NotInMyName: Indians protest against 'beef lynching'

Protests are taking place across India against rising attacks on Muslims and Dalits (formerly untouchables) by vigilante cow protection groups.

About 2,000 people turned out in Delhi. Protests were also being held in 15 other cities as well as in London, protest organiser Saba Dewan said.

The campaign, #NotInMyName, started with a Facebook post she wrote after a Muslim teenager was killed last week.

Many Hindus consider the cow a sacred animal.

Wednesday's protests come amid reports that a Muslim dairy farmer in Jharkhand state was assaulted and his house was set on fire after the carcass of a cow was found at his door on Tuesday afternoon.

Cow slaughter is banned in several Indian states and those found violating the law can be jailed for up to 10 years. Parliament is also considering a bill to bring in the death penalty for the crime.
