Human Rights Watch just declared Donald Trump a threat to human rights | Welfare, Disability, Politics and People's Right's | Scoop.it
Every year, Human Rights Watch publishes a report highlights threats to ordinary people around the world.  It has drawn attention to pressing problems in places such as China, the Philippines and Syria.

Theresa May to announce withdrawal from single market in new hard Brexit strategy

Theresa May to announce withdrawal from single market in new hard Brexit strategy | Welfare, Disability, Politics and People's Right's | Scoop.it
The government is prepared to abandon the single market, customs union and the European Court of Justice in order to achieve a clean break with the EU, Theresa May is expected to say this week. The Prime Minister will also call for “an end to the division” which has maintained a hold over the country since the referendum, in a speech which is expected to give the most detailed insight yet into her approach to the forthcoming talks with Brussels.
britishroses's insight:
Exactly what people voted for! Cameron spent £9 million of our money to produce his little booklet to inform every household in the UK of what leaving the EU would mean, and leaving the single market was one of those. People voted for an END to the free movement of people (the world is too dangerous for this anymore and will get worse), and the EU made it very clear no free movement, no access to the single market.

Hyperpartisan Sites And Facebook Pages Are Publishing False Stories And Conspiracy Theories About Angela Merkel

Hyperpartisan Sites And Facebook Pages Are Publishing False Stories And Conspiracy Theories About Angela Merkel | Welfare, Disability, Politics and People's Right's | Scoop.it
Top-performing Merkel stories in both English and German are dominated by a string of highly critical, and often misleading, article
britishroses's insight:
We don't need false stories, Mrs. Merkel made her mistake when she opened the floodgates inviting fit young men who should be fighting for their countries, terrorists  and those who think of women as second class citizens into the EU without a referendum. Something to big and life altering to every citizen should be put before the people, she had NO BUSINESS doing what she did and is responsible for all the deaths and rapes that have come from it!

Donald Trump is first and foremost a celebrity. The former Celebrity Apprentice host, who has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, is the first person to be elected as US President with zero government or military experience.
