https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-  Turkey.

The  battle for the presidency looks almost certain to go to a run-off, with both contenders adamant they have victory in their grasp.

After 20 years in power, Recep Tayyip Erdogan stood on the balcony of his party HQ saying he was convinced he would win another five.

Everything appeared to have fallen into place for his opponent Kemal Kilicdaroglu to win.

But incomplete results put him behind the president in the first round.

Mr Erdogan is on 49.4%, ahead of his rival who has just under 45%.

And Mr Erdogan's alliance of parties has also won a majority in parliament, according to preliminary figures provided by the state news agency. That could provide an added boost in the presidential run-off.

For months, Turkey's disparate opposition parties had pooled their resources in a bid to bring an end to a president who has extended his power dramatically since a failed coup against him in 2016.

UK men offered £10k to pose as 'dads' in visa scam.


https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-655564


British men are taking payments of thousands of pounds to pose as fathers for migrant women's babies, a BBC investigation has found.

They are being offered up to £10,000 to add their names to birth certificates - enabling a child to get UK citizenship and giving mothers a residency route.

Scammers are using Facebook to tout for business and claim to have helped thousands of women in this way.

Facebook says such content is banned by its rules.

The investigation, by BBC Newsnight, found that the fraud is happening in different communities around the UK.

It uncovered agents operating across the UK who find British men to be fake fathers.

A researcher went undercover, posing as a pregnant woman who was in the UK illegally, and spoke to people offering these services.

One agent, who went by the name Thai, told her he had multiple British men who could act as fake fathers and offered a "full package" for £11,000.

  Isn't 'Andrew' a fine example of a 'British' male?   :-\
  Give me a break.  ;D


 The whole article appears to be a 'how to' guide, of course the fake BBC consult an immigration lawyer, who always give a balanced opinion on these matters, probably another Liebour party activist.

Reform of rental sector.




Landlords would be banned from evicting tenants with no justification as part of a long-promised overhaul of the private rental sector in England.

A new law to be tabled in Parliament would abolish no-fault evictions and end bans on tenants claiming benefits.

The bill would also make it easier for landlords to repossess properties from anti-social tenants.

https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/uk-news/four-key-signs-symptoms-new-27553093


A new strain of Covid has arrived in Britain, it has been confirmed. And following its discovery it's vital to be aware of the key signs and symptoms.

The highly mutated BA.2.86 - or ‘Pirola’ - has been found in a number of other countries according to the UK Health Security Agency, the Mirror reports.


 Despite confirming the existence of a case in the UK, the UKHSA declined to confirm any more details.

Mum of seven's despair as family is forced to live in one-bed flat.


Surely the council can accommodate them elsewhere :-\

Quote from the MEN article:
"The property was originally assigned to Cheryl in June 2020 when she was pregnant with Laila, now aged two, and intended just for them. But due to circumstances beyond her control, last year Cheryl had to take in her other six children."


  Seems strange, allocated a one bedroom flat while expecting her child and then six more kids appear, a cynic would say that there's some sharp practice on the tenants part, what about the father or father's of her brood, where are they?
  Sick of freeloaders acting as if everyone else who work and pay taxes to support them while they procreate without thought about how to support themselves or their offspring, their situation is never their fault, blame the government, the council, it's never themselves.
  Poverty porn, something the M.E.N. thrives on.

They are there now,  it's impractical and unhealthy/unhygienic to so  put many in a one-bedroom flat,  they have to get to school,  do homework,  they need more space and I'd want to know the council's reasons why they haven't been given larger accommodation.

To be fair, the council can't 'magic up' a house as easy as she 'magic-ed up' the six extra kids.  ???
