    More trouble for Labour.

    Two Council Offices from Bury (near Manchester) deliberately delayed investigating paedophilia accusations against a labour politician in order to help the party’s chances in the 2015 election.

    An internal report seen by Manchester Evening News says that child protection procedures were delayed so that the claims against the Labour politician did not surface prior to the election. The politician was eventually convicted of downloading child pornography pictures, but the Council initially failed to ensure any children he might have contact with were kept safe, it included not properly informing the schools of which he was governor.

      from Russia is fake news to looking in a mirror and saying “Pardon me” in one short week… Oh the burn!

      This notion of presidential self-pardoning power completely undermines the rule of law. If presidents can self-pardon, then it opens the floodgates to engaging in criminal conduct with impunity, That utterly violates the constitutional foundation that no-one is above the law.

    ISIS fighters dress up as women with make up and padded bras to escape from Mosul, but they forget to shave their facial hair, and are caught.

        Obviously top of the class in Quran recital, but not rocket science.

          I would say so.

          He may have been top of the class in bomb making or decapitation as well, lets not limit his abilities.

            Should have added, one of which (his abilities) is definitely not make up application.
