In an investigation last year

Sunak’s wife part-owns firm that funnelled cash through Mauritius tax haven​

Rishi's Wife, Akshata Murty, an investigation found, is richer than the Queen.

The chancellor, Rishi Sunak, is facing questions over the transparency of his financial affairs after a Guardian investigation established that his wife and her family hold a multimillion-pound portfolio of shareholdings and directorships that are not declared in the official register of ministers’ interests.

Justice overhaul to better protect the public and back our police​


Full Details

Extract:
Cutting crime and building safer communities will be at the heart of new legislation unveiled in Parliament today, as the government delivers on its pledge to restore confidence in the criminal justice system.

The Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill seeks to equip the police with the powers and tools they need to protect themselves and the public, while overhauling sentencing laws to keep serious sexual and violent offenders behind bars for longer, and placing greater emphasis on rehabilitation to better help offenders to turn their lives around and prevent further crimes.

  • punishments to reflect severity of crimes with police given stronger powers and protections
  • child sex abuse laws extended to cover sports coaches and faith leaders
  • Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill introduced to Parliament today

Whilst reform is now needed, maybe it wouldn't have got to this stage if we hadn't had so many Tory cuts, in their ideological austerity drive towards the Police force and the Court Services. We wouldn't have to restore confidence in the criminal system, which seems to be failing victims, even after the hard work put into the Police investigations, done on limited resources and manpower to no reward, and little in the sentencing must be morale sapping..................


Nick Thomas-Symonds MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary said:

“The measures in this Bill will be cold comfort to officers who are have been offered a pay freeze in response for their remarkable bravery in this pandemic.

“While Labour has been calling for a number of these changes, they (tories) will not go far enough to tackle violence against officers, which saw attacks on officers rise 50 per cent over the past five years.”

Wouldn't expect Labour or their supporters to have anything good to say at anytime with their 'Yes but' opposition stance on every subject.

Labour should copyright these phases, it seems to be their mantra.....

"they will not go far enough" and "they don't go far enough"

I hope this criminal justice system will prosecute all who break the law, including Health ministers and their corrupt allocation of public contracts to chums. Also tory MPs accused of serious sexual misconduct. Still waiting on that one.

Just Tory MPs accused of serious sexual misconduct?

Not others from any other party?

THE investigation into a Conservative MP and ex-minister arrested after a woman accused him of rape has been dropped, police have confirmed.

A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman said: "Following a thorough investigation, and based on all evidence made available to officers, the decision was taken that the case did not meet the evidential test and no further action will be taken.

Only as recently as the 12th January Priti Patel was pledging to crack whip on Covid rulebreakers backing the Metropolitan Police commissioner Dame Cressida Dick in a co- warning that tougher measures may be enforced if the public refused to comply with covid restrictions.


Now Priti Patel fakes false shock and wonder, why the police were so heavy handed on Sarah Everard
vigil rally supporters ....

We are hearing calls for the resignation of Met Chief
Cressida Dick , well if she is at fault, then maybe her political backer and co sponsor of the get tuff policy Priti Patel should also fall on her sword ... how many lives as Priti priti Patel got?

instead she is holding her hands in woe asking for a Probe into Police handling ...

latest: Priti Patel demands full report after Metropolitan Police’s ‘upsetting’ response at Sarah Everard vigil


It would have been held Safer and less confrontational if the original organisers had been allowed to hold what was going to be an organized vigil before the Met took it to court to ban it, but the judge couldn't intevene and told the Met it was up to them but discuss it ,they didn't and it end up with in disorganized rally .

The vigil organizers promised it would be Covid Safe and were going to have 50 women stewards ( which would be less confrontational than having police in a uniform which is at the moment a red flag being associated with the murder )

The Met didn't take this to court as you state, it was the event organisers Jessica Leigh, Anna Birley, Henna Shah, and Jamie Klinger.

Your right, Tenpin but Met or Organizer .... the outcome I explained the was the same and didn't change .... you would agree ?

The vigil in memory of Sarah Everard is in major doubt this evening after a High Court judge said it would be “inappropriate” for him to intervene in the row between organisers and the Met Police.

Mr Justice Holgate refused to make the declaration but said he hopes the emergency court hearing had helped to “clarify” the laws around policing of protests during the pandemic.

In the aftermath of the ruling vigil organisers said they were in discussions with the Met Police about how it could go ahead safely. ( but instead of giving an answer released a statement)

(The Judge said )The position now, because of the ruling, is protest can in principle be lawful and it is up to the police to assess the proportionality."
