A Black female athlete complains about racial profiling after she and her boyfriend got stopped in their car in London. Then you read why they got stopped and searched.

They were driving with blacked out windows Mercedes on the wrong side of the road and when asked to stop, sped away refusing to stop !! What were the Police supposed to think ?

The UK Chinese ambassador is now threatening us over Hong Kong and Huawei now. We should deport him.
No point escalating; we should just do what is necessary as sadly we will be taking actions that only the US and Australia will support us on., our so-called European allies have already signaled that they won't stand up to China's bullying.

How dare the govt say front line workers nurses etc now need to start paying for parking again...what a message to give out to the people risking thir lives above and beyond daily. FFS it is a pinch in the ocean of expenditture at around £150 million, The fees should be scrapped permanently for ever.....how dare they even contemplate doing this. Boris show your balls and stop this monstrous decision. Again it is showing how two faced govts are. Save our NHS so we can fleece these low paid heroes!

Today's so called raft of economic measures to boost the economy needs examination. What is the actual cost to the govt of these dresses up hand outs ?
People don't need to go to restaurants, it's not a necessity. It's nice for those that can afford it. Restaurant owners get a boost to their trade with a 15 % discount on the VAT, what about other business operators ?
Employers keeping on furloughed staff until January get a £ 1000 bonus. But how much will the govt get in increased revenue from income tax and national insurance from those staff over 12 weeks ? Is the govt really giving away a grand ? Same goes for the apprentice scheme . The employer gets 2k contribution to the wages to pay over how long ? 2 years income tax and national insurance against the 2k .
I would be interested to know what the actual cost of the so called hand outs is.
Not much stimulation for businesses unless they are hospitality.

It makes me wonder what goes on in other countries. This Lebanese explosion is just crazy. Highly explosive ammonium nitrate stored in a warehouse close to local business and houses. It's been there since 2013 sat festering and waiting for trouble after being off loaded from a striken ship.The authorities are corrupt, they were warned repeatedly of the danger of the chemical by the harbour guys. This stuff is what home made bombs are made from.

The migrant issue from France is getting worse. 235 in one day. It's out of control and France aren't doing enough to stop the small boats either leaving their shores or exiting their waters into ours. Of course they are only too pleased to get rid of them.

How dare Dawn Butler question the Police Officers who stopped the car she was in. She should be thanking them. There was a specific operation in the Hackney area related to guns and drugs. The car was a black BMW with darkened windows, it was registered to an owner in Yorkshire so could have been stolen. Butler questioned the profiling used to stop the car as being stereotyped to the car, the area and the colour of the occupants skin.
Just bloody stop, be polite, answer the questions and go. No instead she develops it into a race v police issue.

I feel sorry for those on holiday in France having to return early. France is experiencing a spike. I dont quite get why France have threatened reciprocal measures. The UK infection rate is lower. !! Is it a childish tit for tat reaction ?

North Korea are confiscating pet dogs and using them for food in restaurants due to meat shortages. South Korea also eat dogs.
Seemingly, the reason is to stop a capitalist practice 'owning a dog', of course the food shortages will be the main driver as it always appears to be in the North, in the South killing dogs for meat is now an illegal practice and has declined every year by around 20%, it is now only seemingly eaten by peasants and old people - well that's according to the South Koreans themselves..

The Chinese just eat copious amounts of dog meat.

I dont like Sonny anyway. If he admits to eating dog, that's it.
