First hour News Review: Criminalising trespass – Rees Mogg; Steve Pearce Bristol City Cabinet member for waste is pursuing an injunction against Bristol van dwellers in St Werburghs; Government set to pass new ‘hostile’ anti-Traveller laws this autumn. The Travellers’ Times can reveal that lawyers and campaigners are ready to act after the government recently announced that new ‘hostile’ anti-Traveller laws, which could include the criminalisation of trespass, will be delivered this autumn. The laws are set to follow the Government’s consultation on unauthorised camps and sites late last year and the Conservative Party’s 2019 General Election manifesto promise to criminalise trespass. Traveller law experts are already set to challenge any new laws in court, say lawyers. “At the time the consultation was in progress we made it clear why we felt that the Government’s proposals were discriminatory and unlawful,” a senior lawyer from Community Law Partnership told the Travellers’ Times. “If the Government bring in these proposals, then we are already instructed to take forward court challenges.” Home Secretary Priti Patel told MP’s that new laws based on the 2019 government consultation on unauthorised Traveller camps and sites would be brought forward in autumn. Earlier this month, Jacob Rees-Mogg, Leader of the House of Commons, told MP’s that the Government intended to deliver on its election promise to make trespass a criminal offence……

Conor Gogarty – Bristol Post and Daily Mirror – smear travellers in newspapers part of Tory campaign to criminalise trespass as UK leaves European Court of Human Rights: Road ‘descending into slum’ with drug taking and defecating in plain sight of kids. Business owners on New Gatton Road in St Werburghs, Bristol, are campaigning for the council to take action ‘before a child gets killed’ by Conor Gogarty & Lila Randall 16 FEB 2020 – Business owners in Bristol say a road has ‘descended into a slum’ with people injecting drugs in view of schoolchildren, fly tipping and defecating on the street. Other problems plaguing New Gatton Road in St. Werburghs, north-east central Bristol, are illegal caravan dwellers who allegedly discard drug needles onto the streets. Now businesses have hit out at Bristol council for not taking action to clean-up the area and protect children. Wholesaler BL Flooring and brewery Fierce & Noble say used needles are regularly discarded and “vegan propaganda” graffiti sprayed around the area, Bristol Live reports. BL Flooring complained to Bristol City Council about the caravans on an almost daily basis, but says none have been removed since last March and claims some have been there more than a year. After a complaint by nearby climbing centre Bloc Climbing, the Local Government Ombudsman last month found the council had been negligent in addressing the encampment. It ordered the council to pay Bloc Climbing £750 in compensation…

5G mast in St. Pauls – Freya Lockwood from Bristol Smart Cities who has refused interviews. St Paul’s residents ‘concerned’ as 5G mast installed People living nearby claim that they weren’t properly consulted about the plans A 5G mast has been installed on Newfoundland Road in St Pauls this week, leaving residents feeling “neglected” as they claim they were never consulted. The planning application was approved by Bristol City Council in September 2019 and 18 objections were made. The objections predominantly raised concerns over claims that 5G is harmful to the health of humans, as well as its visual impact. The Report To Committee document states the application was “carefully considered” by officers and a consultation was held with ward councillors and Cabot Primary School, which is near the site, was notified. No responses were received from councillors or the school following this pre-application consultation. WHP Telecoms has been approached for a statement by BristolLive, but we are still awaiting a response. Amirah Cole, community activist and former manager of the Malcolm X Community Centre said she feels “devastated” that the mast was installed after applications for 5G masts were recently rejected by Bristol City Council. She feels as though there has been a lack of communication between members of the community and ward councillors. She said: “It makes you think, who is serving your community? I’m just really shocked. I can’t believe it. It makes residents feel as though they are not being heard. This just can’t continue. “It’s as if because it’s St Pauls, anything goes here. We recently fought for the M32 Maples and now we’re fighting for this. We’re always fighting for something. “People should be looking out for the residents because St Pauls is not a dumping ground. It’s as if the planning groups think if they do something, no one will notice. It’s one battle after the other.”…

Britain now in debt by £2 trillion, 100% of GDP – bank collapse, QE. The UK’s national debt tops £2 trillion, and passes 100% of the country’s GDP for the first time in over 50 years – The UK’s government debt has hit £2 trillion ($2.6 trillion) for the first time in history after policymakers doled out “extraordinary” fiscal support during the pandemic this year. Britain’s debt has exceeded 100% of economic output for the first time since the 1960s, the ONS said. The news comes about a week after the UK officially entered into recession as economic output dropped 20.4% in the second quarter. The UK’s government debt has exceeded £2 trillion ($2.6 trillion) for the first time in history, according to data released by the country’s national statistics authority on Friday. That indicates Britain’s debt has exceeded 100% of economic output for the first time since the 1960s, the ONS said. This month, the UK officially entered recession for the first time in 11 years as gross domestic product fell 20.4% in the second quarter. COVID-19’s severe impact on public finances showed that the £150 billion ($197 billion) borrowed in the first four months of the 2020 financial year almost tripled the £56 billion ($73 billion) borrowed throughout the entire previous financial year (April 2019 to March 2020). The figures reflect a high amount of government borrowing to support businesses and individuals against the economic downturn caused by the coronavirus. The £26.7 billion ($35.2 billion) that the government borrowed in July “was the lowest monthly borrowing figure since March as fiscal support started to unwind,” said Ruth Gregory, senior UK economist at Capital Economics. “Nonetheless, it is another huge sum and pushes borrowing in the year to date to £150.5bn.”…

Hashem Abedi, brother of Manchester bomber, sentenced to life imprisonment: Libyan Islamic Fighting Group and MI6; Daily Mail article – Istanbul father – Manchester Arena suicide bomber Salman Abedi’s father who was arrested and then disappeared after the attack ‘is tracked down living in Istanbul’. Ramadan Abedi was captured by police in 2017 just hours after his son’s attack. Is now receiving medical treatment in Turkey’s Istanbul according to sources – 23 March 2020 The father of the Manchester Arena terrorists, who was arrested in Libya following the bombing which killed 22 people, is receiving medical aid in Istanbul. Ramadan Abedi, who was captured by police in 2017 just hours after insisting his son Salman Abedi was not behind the suicide bombing in the UK, has been regularly visiting the Turkish capital for treatment, The Daily Telegraph has revealed. While it is yet unknown what the father is being treated for, sources told the paper that it is being paid for by the Libyan government who he previously worked for as a civil servant. Following the Manchester Arena blast in 2017, which saw Abedi’s son Salman detonate a shrapnel-loaded bomb at a Ariana Grande concert, the father, who fled Tripoli in 1993 before claiming asylum in the UK, and his youngest son Hashem, 22, were arrested in Libya. The terrorist’s father, who returned to Libya from the UK after Gaddafi was overthrown in the country’s 2011 civil war, was quietly released without charge by Libya’s Special Deterrence Force, a militia group, and disappeared. However, the father, has now been tracked down by a local Libyan source who told the The Telegraph that he is often seen in Tripoli and has been visiting a hospital in Istanbul for unknown reasons….

Dawn Waddy on Sky about suspicious woman next to her at concert. Was bomber’s accomplice in the crowd on night of attack? Concertgoer tells of ‘suspicious woman smirking to herself’ at Ariana Grande concert. Police are currently trying to track down members of suicide bomber’s network. Investigators believe he had help making his bombing and planning the atrocity. A mother who was in the crowd with her daughter saw a suspicious woman. The woman ‘was alone and kept looking at where the explosion later happened’. A mother has told of a suspicious ‘smirking’ woman at the Ariana Grande concert who disappeared moments before the bomb went off, killing 22. Dawn Waddy twice reported the woman to ShowSec security after she sat on her own looking in the direction of where the explosion later happened. The claims emerged as police carry out a series of raids as they try to track down any accomplices of suicide bomber Salman Abedi. – Ms Waddy, who was at Monday night’s concert with her daughter Holly and a friend, said her friend first became concerned about the woman’s behaviour. She told Sky News: ‘I got suspicious myself and my friend, who was sat next to her told me; “I don’t like this”. ‘She was fidgeting with her zips and had her hands in her jacket and it put you on edge. ‘I told [ShowSec] security and they informed a high security. They were up and down the stairs where she sat discreetly looking at her.’ Ms Waddy said the woman became more agitated during the evening and left shortly before the bomb went off. Investigators fear bomber Abedi may have been part of a network of extremists and police and security services are examining whether the group have another bomb…


NHS Covid-19 Test Results to August 2020

Covid 19: former BBC Anna Brees website – Greg, a company director, on Covid 19; Hector Drummond Magazine reader and contributor Christopher Bowyer has done some Covid-19 test result graphs. The last one is particularly relevant to the current state of play, so please read to the end. (All graphs can be clicked to enlarge.) Christopher notes that: With the testing graphs, the https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk website has been redone, so now you can only download one lot of data at at time, rather than all the data in one big .csv file as before. So I have just done three graphs from the new website, one of positive tests in England, one of Eng hospital admissions, and one of hospital admissions per 1000 tests. First up we have the graph of daily Covid-19 positive tests (by specimen date), for England, with a 7-day average trendline (the thick line). The last graph is really interesting, as from mid-April to the last week in June the 7-day average has been fairly consistent, between 300 and 400 admissions per 1000 positive tests. But since the last week of June, probably due to the increased testing, the admission rate has fallen sharply, from 375 per 1000 positive tests to less than 100 per 1000 positive tests. This might help put the recent media/government hysteria and fear of a ‘second wave’ into context, by showing that the small increase in cases (due to the ramped-up testing) has not caused a similar spike in hospital admissions, they have continued to fall.

Second Nuclear Power Station planned in Bradwell-on-Sea: Jean Allen, Chair of Bradwell-on-Sea Parish Council, discusses the local opposition to this plan. Plans for new Bradwell nuclear power station open for public consultation. People in Bradwell-on-Sea in Essex will get to have their say on plans for a new nuclear power station from today. A 12 week public consultation is starting on proposals for Bradwell B – a twin reactor on the same site as a power station which stopped operating in 2002. The consultation will include fifteen exhibition events across Essex which will give local residents the chance to review the proposals. We are excited to share our early plans with the community, and to hear ideas on how to deliver this project to capture the huge opportunities that Bradwell B will bring to Essex, whilst also supporting the objective for the UK of net zero carbon emissions by 2050. The Bradwell A nuclear power station still sits on the shores of the Blackwater estuary. CEO of the Bradwell B project, Alan Raymant, is confident that building a new power station will bring a lot to the area….
