  • Comment on: "I'm worried people might kill themselves" - Inside the collapse of Kids Company

    ian harris's comment | Thu, 6 Aug 2015 2:33 pm

    It's obvious that the lack of proper financial control of Kid's Company has led to the present situation. It would have happened a lot sooner if it had not been for its support from Cameron and other big-wigs, notably the BBC. Recently they were let off £700,000 tax they owed. They have got away with things no other charity would have got away with, have had a huge amount from the Government over the years, which they've been handing out, it seems, to almost any teenager with enough of a sob story, who just turn up once a week to collect their 'pay' Blame its founder who was really good at talking up politicians, but really useless in controlling what happened with the vast amount of taxpayer's money they were handed.

  • Comment on: Could Tony Blair face trial over war crimes in Iraq? Here's what Jeremy Corbyn has to say

    ian harris's comment | Wed, 5 Aug 2015 12:55 pm

    there seems little doubt that Blair and his colleagues were at least economical with the truth about Saddam and his weapons of mass destruction which they well knew were no threat to UK. Legal advice was against the war, and it had not been sanctioned by the UN. War purely for regime change is illegal. Bush and Blair are largely responsible for the dreadful events that followed and continue to follow the Iraq which was entered into under false claims about 9/11 when it was the Saudis who were largely responsible for that tragic event, and their form of extreme Wahabism has fuelled and funded terrorist groups, including ISIL, ever since. Unfortunately, Western politicians have not learned that replacing dictators, however unsavoury, invariably leads to something worse: see Libya.

  • Comment on: Woohoo! The Tube is getting a £5.4bn revamp – here’s what you need to know about it

    I hope this is going to provide for completely automated trains-no more over-paid, striking drivers on £50k+ per annum.
