“Political rot has spread from US to UK”

Unarguable.

Even more need for Independent Claire Wright.

“… In only a short 17 months. the world that Trump operated in doesn’t seem so distant from the UK at all any more. The style and character the Trumpist presidency has been successfully transplanted to Britain. …

So too, as the UK’s political climate has transformed into something nearly unrecognisable from just a few years ago, the once-unthinkable becomes the new normal. The UK is going through an election remarkable mostly for its squalor and lack of vision. The Labour leader seems temperamentally incapable of apologising for the anti-Semitism that has wracked his party; and as Britain is once again is hit by a terrorist atrocity, Johnson shamelessly exploited the tragedy – against the express wishes of the bereaved families – to support his party’s law and order credentials. …”

Some 150,000 of those registration applications were from people under the age of 25, while 114,000 were from those aged 25 to 34. …”

“Farmers convert land back to wildflower meadows in bid to cut carbon” (not East Devon’s Green candidate who has optioned some of his farming land to Persimmon!

What a contrast!

“Matthew Cooke, the Wildflower Farmer, believes a change is urgently needed to counter the influence of supermarkets and processors that demand more for less from the farming community, pressures that drive prices and negatively affect wildlife and the countryside.
