Theresa May is haunting the ruins of a once great democracy

Theresa May is haunting the ruins of a once great democracy
- The Institute of Fiscal Studies forecasts that child poverty in the UK will reach over five million by the end of the next parliament due to array of damaging policies the Tory UK government introduced in its time in office.

The UK populace have elected a government which uses hunger as a political instrument of choice. The Trussell Trust showed that 145,865 three-day emergency food supplies were provided by the network of 52 foodbanks across Scotland in 2016/17, including 47,955 for children – a nine per cent increase on 2015/16.

They have elected a government which has introduced social engineering by stealth via a two-child tax credit cap and the sickening 'Rape Clause'. It’s a policy born out of the Conservatives’ ideological hatred for the poor and implemented with a callous disregard of the consequences.

Two men describe what its like to be tortured for being gay in Chechnya
- The two have since fled mainly Muslim Chechnya, but they still fear being hunted down and persecuted. They spoke to Reuters on condition that their real names were not used, and their voices and faces disguised.
One of the men, who gave his name as Anzor, said he had been detained by police as he was driving in the company of other men from a Chechen village to the Caucasus region's capital Grozny in February.
"They found some medicine on one of the guys," he told Reuters Television. Seeing his rings and bracelets, the policemen asked if he was "a faggot" and beat him severely, the man said in an interview. 

How gay-tolerant is the countryside?

How gay-tolerant is the countryside?
- And aside from characters in the rural soap Emmerdale’s and Little Britain’s satirical sideswipe with only-gay-in-the-village Daffyd, it’s rare to see gay men presented as farmers.
But are rural areas devoid of them? And are they really absent from agriculture and the related industries?
Information released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) last October calculated 1.7% of the population identified as lesbian, gay or bisexual, based on a survey of 238,000 people.
That figure is lower than the 5-7% suggested in 2004 when the government was considering the potential effect of its Civil Partnership Bill.
