    If the Conservative's plans to withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights are implemented, the fundamental right to a fair trial would be demolished, and the duty to act in the best interest of the child may well be eroded. Earlier this month, the justice secretary Chris Grayling announced that a future Conservative government would repeal the Human Rights Act 1998 and replace it with a British Bill of Rights.  According to Grayling, if his plans aren’t sanctioned by the Council of Europe, Britain will go a step further, and withdraw completely from the European Convention…

  • Atheist Jailed 100 Days for Refusing Religious Drug Rehab Wins $2 Million Settlement

    AlterNet - By Terrell Jermaine Starr - Oct. 19 (News Report) - There are many more cases of those who violate people's right to religious liberty while representing state interests, but this is as much a societal issue as it is civil rights. We still live in a nation where a politician's road to the White House requires him or her to profess a love for God that is hardly required to do the job. There is also a lot of hypocrisy among those who believe Americans should embrace God, or more specifically, the "right" God.NewsTrust Rating: 3.4 average (not enough reviews) -…

    More than 30 years years after the British Government signed up to the Convention to Eliminate all Forms of Discrimination against Women the CEDAW Committee responsible for monitoring its implementation has censured the UK for its poor record, and failure to mitigate the impact of austerity measures on women. As UK women’s ngos prepare for the 59th Session of UN Commission on the Status of Women ( CSW)  that will review Member States’ implementation of the 1995 Beijing Platform for Action (BPFA) in March 2015, many will be critical of the government's record, not just over the last…

    The Scottish referendum introduced much needed chaos and taught people to think about power and politics. We need to bring its spirit to all of the UK. "One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star." - Friedrich Nietzsche I was thinking of how best to explain my favourable position towards the Yes vote during the Scottish referendum campaign to my colleagues at the university and my Anglo-American flatmates. After having given the same reasons that were already stated time and time again in the media, ranging from the different possibilities on the…
  • Inequality and the 1%: avarice

    Danny Dorling
    20 Oct 2014 | 1:17 am
    This is an extract from Danny Dorling's new book "inequality and the 1%", available from Verso. When a society becomes as unequal as the UK now is, avarice rises. As inequalities increase, people already at the top become ever more motivated solely by greed. The source of inequality is a failure to control the greedy. Often they feel that they need more money despite all their wealth. They are made to feel that way because status and respect are increasingly measured in purely financial terms. Just over thirty years ago, Neil Kinnock, then Labour Party leader, remarked: ‘If Margaret…

    Dr Reeza Hameed
    19 Oct 2014 | 12:14 pm
    Photo courtesy The Daily Beast President Rajapakse’s eligibility to seek a third term as President has become a contentious issue ever since former Chief Justice Sarath Silva declared several weeks ago that President Rajapakse is legally barred from contesting a third time. Some commentators have challenged Sarath Silva’s views and Chinthaka Mendis was one of them (see Chinthaka Mendis, ‘Why Sarath Silva is wrong’, September 14, 2014, The Island). In my view, Sarath Silva is right in his assertion that President Rajapakse is disqualified from bidding for a third term and that the…

    Photo courtesy Wikipedia For a society to function smoothly, there has to be a commonly agreed framework of governance. This framework defines and specifies the way those who are elected to govern are to be elected, the powers they ought to have, in which circumstances and for what purposes, ability to delegate, responsibilities of various sections such as the executive and legislative branches, and more importantly the limitations. Usually the constitution of a country provides the principal blueprint of such a framework supplemented by various legislation approved by the legislature. When…

    Review of Harshan Kumarasingham’s A Political Legacy of the British Empire In our long discussions about Sri Lanka’s post-independence political history, India’s large shadow falls inevitably upon us, bringing with it a curious and mixed effect; it is both alarming and inspiring at times, but also quite disheartening and dispiriting on other occasions. We were both part of the British Empire, both Mother Lanka and Mother India, but an analysis of our respective post-colonial histories shows the contrast; and as a consequence, there is, somewhere in the air, a sense of jealousy too,…

Last week he presented the Cabinet of Ministers with a proposal to increase communal harmony in the country and implement the LLRC proposals, though a few weeks earlier the defense establishment, had facilitated a convention of an extremist religious organization, which joined hands with a convicted religious extremist monk from Myanmar to sprout the kind of vitriolic venom at minorities that most closely resembled the…

    Season of the Dragonflies by Sarah Creech was a great end-of-summer read. It leans more toward chick-lit than my usual choices. There are some interesting plot twists and a good build-up, but the big finish fell flat for me. This is the story of the Lenore women – ever since their matriarch made a bold decision and ran off an amazing adventure, they have nurtured a secret business, deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains. They cultivate a unique flower, a gardenia brought back from the Amazonian jungle, and turn it into the most expensive perfume on Earth. It is sold only to a carefully…

    Sometimes it’s hard to tell who is worse, the players or the leagues. While the NFL and the NCAA find themselves in one bad situation after another, the players at both levels make it clear that many of them have little regard for rules or even for other human beings. At the college level, I think the good kids outnumber the bad kids by a lot, but there are still a number of them that clearly think the world revolves around them and the rules don’t apply. This week, Georgia’s star running back, Todd Gurley, was suspended indefinitely after it was alleged that he signed a whole lot of…

    I’ve read two novels by Ian McEwan, On Chesil Beachand Saturday and loved them both, so I was thrilled to get an early copy of The Children Act. Like the others I mentioned, it’s understated and quiet; much of the action in the book happens inside the main character’s head. However, I was so caught up in the story, so engaged by her struggle, that I read nearly straight through. Thank heavens McEwan doesn’t feel the need for 800 pages to tell a story. Fiona Maye is 59, a High Court judge who presides over family court cases. She thought she was happily married until…

    The library service needs to look at how things could be done differently to provide an even more efficient service to our customers. A library by library analysis has enabled the service to identify for each when its quietest hours are. We believe that not opening during the quietest times will provide significant savings whilst minimising the impact on customers – approximately 97.7% of book borrowers and computer users have used their own library or another library at times which would not be affected by this review. However, we appreciate that not every use of the library is…

    17 Oct 2014 | 4:15 am
    As I wrote in a article several weeks ago, there are about 25,000 people held in solitary confinement in supermax prison units called SHUs—security housing units—and another 80,000 inmates housed in isolation cells in regular prisons and jails.
