Free Bus Travel For Children Axed As Part Of TfL Bailout

Jeremy Corbyn plans free bus travel for 322,000 Birmingham ...
The congestion charge is set to increase to £15 and operate seven days a week until 10pm after the Government bailed out TfL. Free travel for children is temporarily scrapped as is travel in the morning and evening rush hours to Freedom Pass holders.

As part of the deal to provide emergency funding to prevent imminent collapse as fair revenue hit the floor, the central government have levied a number of conditions. The increase to 10pm is “temporary” and raises the question of whether a future candidate could promise to scale it back at elections in 2020.

These measures are likely enforced by central Government to help the conservative candidate in next years election. In recent days Shaun Bailey has highlighted TfL’s poor finances through continually failed to mention that George Osborne cut £700 million a year in funding which is now taking full effect.

Via - Premium Times
The Nigerian government earned ₦416.32 billion from the solid minerals sector from 2007 to 2018, an analysis by the Premium Times Centre for Investigative Journalism [PTCIJ] and Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD) has revealed.
Over half of that amount was earned between 2015 and 2018.
The figure emerged from data analysis, industry review, and review of documents obtained by PTCIJ and CDD from the Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI) through a Freedom of Information (FOI) request.
The figure is not eye-turning when compared to what Nigeria earned over the same period from the oil and gas sector. But experts and operators in the mining sector say its huge potential means much more would accrue if Nigeria properly harnesses its vast solid mineral resources.

Bosses battle furloughed workers who DON'T want to return to work and would rather put their feet up with 80% pay funded by taxpayers

Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced the furlough scheme would continue until October

Nicky Jolley, managing director of HR2day, told MailOnline some of her business clients have been left short-staffed because workers are reluctant to return from life at home on furlough - and 'the situation is getting worse' the longer it continues.
She said: 'There are some employees who have quite enjoyed weeks off with 80 per cent pay, and with the beautiful weather, schools being closed, and perhaps a partner furloughed or having lost their job, there have been some requests to remain on the scheme.  They've got a touch of "furlough fever", enjoying what is, in essence, a paid holiday. Sadly, this is putting a strain on businesses who need their staff back'.
She added: 'If it's just a case of wanting to enjoy another three weeks in the garden, employers would be well within their rights to insist this is taken as a holiday, unpaid leave or even begin disciplinary proceedings'.

Children face being sent to DIFFERENT schools with staggered start times and a maximum of 15 pupils to a class under radical plans to reopen classrooms within weeks - if 'posturing' unions spoiling for a fight don't veto them

Boris Johnson (pictured on Sunday night) said pupils in reception, Year 1 and Year 6 will be the first to go back from the start of the month during the staged process
Prime Minister Boris Johnson (pictured, centre, addressing the nation last night) has said that years one and six would be the first pupils to return to schools in England under his road map to ease the UK out of the coronavirus lockdown. Teachers are in revolt against the limited reopening of schools in England from June 1, with 85 per cent saying they disagreed with plans to fully reopen primary schools in a poll conducted by the National Education Union. 

Trade unions have said that their members may refuse to go back to work under the conditions as headteachers pointed out that they can refuse to re-open schools. Dr Mary Bousted, NEU joint general secretary, described the timetable (left, Mr Johnson's road map) as 'reckless' as unions raised concerns about the Government not providing staff or youngsters with PPE (pictured, bottom-right, a teacher in France dons a facemask and, top-right, pupils practising social distancing at a hub school in Edinburgh). 

Former Tory party leader Sir Iain Duncan Smith said: 'The unions owe the British public the responsibility of working to ensure schools open to help parents. Political posturing isn't needed at this time. The British people need the unions to co-operate with the Government and not to take inflexible positions.'

Fake Letter Making The Rounds About Tithing Refund Program

They don't mail out letters anymore. All communications are sent digitally now, so this nicely folded paper is completely fake, even at first glace. The font is wrong. It's missing the new symbol. The style guide isn't being followed. But it touches on things that people want to believe, just like so many other conspiracy theory things that are circulating so widely right now.

Boris Johnson puts his faith in 'common sense of British people' as he knocks back criticism of the chaotic launch of his lockdown exit plan

Boris Johnson finally sets out tentative three-stage 'exit plan ...

Boris Johnson played down expectations of a quick end to the misery for the country, saying going 'too far and too fast' risked a devastating second peak. In the Commons (pictured centre), he said the government would be driven 'not by hope or economic recovery as an end in itself but by data and science and public health'. And bluntly dismissing criticism over a shambolic launch to the changes - with No10 and Dominic Raab embarrassingly at odds over when the measures come into force and exactly how they will operate - Mr Johnson said he was putting his faith in 'good solid, British common sense'. 

The defiant note came as the government finally published its 50-page 'road map' this afternoon, plotting a route through three stages to get the country up and running. The blueprint stressed that the five tests have not yet been met, and so major loosening of the draconian curbs is not possible. 

But the document said 'smarter' social distancing measures are being introduced to try and nudge the country back to some sort of normality. It holds out the prospect of the non-essential shop, TV sports and weddings starting to resume from next month - with the possibility of allowing people to socialise outside their own households in small 'bubbles'. However, it leaves no doubt that hairdressers, pubs and foreign holidays are much further off.
