Britain’s political crisis has moved to new territory after President Jeremy Corbyn presented a statement in Theresa May in order not to have a meaningful Brexit vote immediately. The prime minister had previously announced that the House of Commons would not vote for its withdrawal plan until mid January. Corbyn’s movement was not a trust for the government as a whole, but Labor claimed that if the government did not allow time to debate the movement it would show that it was afraid of losing and because May had no confidence in the House.

When the EU announced further contingency plans for a non-agreement, Corbyn said the debate was an unprecedented national crisis. Both the EU and May said their deal would not be renegotiated. Peter Walker analyzes what may (or may not) happen before January 1

4th.

Yael Stone has said that there were “some really dark nights of the soul” before her decision to speak publicly about alleged improper conduct at Geoffrey Rush . Talking about ABC’s 7.30 program, Orange is the new black star repeated statements first published in the New York Times on Monday’s Rush behavior when the two actors were co-stars in a 2010 theater production of Madman’s Diary. Stone claims that Rush held a mirror over her while she showered, dancing naked in front of her, moving on her back in an “undesirable” and “very sensual way”. In a statement issued by his lawyers on Monday, Rush said that Stein’s allegations were “wrong and in some cases taken entirely out of context”. “But clearly, Yael has been upset sometimes by the spiritual enthusiasm that I generally take for my work,” he said. “I sincerely and deeply regret if I have caused her any distress. This has really never been my intention.”

Russian propagandists online aggressively targeting African Americans during the 2016 US election campaign to suppress voices for Hillary Clinton and helping Donald Trump, according to new research. Analysts found that Russian operators used social media to “confuse, distract and ultimately deter” black people and other pro-Clinton blocks from voting, using false statements that Clinton receives money from the Ku Klux Klan. Black rise declined in 2016 for the first presidential election in 20 years and dropped to less than 60% from record high 66.6% in 2012. The result of the Internet research agency’s secret activity, known as the Russian government’s “troll factory”, was unveiled on Monday in reports to the US senate’s intelligence committee.

It seems to be an impossible view with a margin of 19.8%, but the scandal that forced Andrew Broad to leave the Ministry on Monday means one of the party’s safest seats in play, writes Gabrielle Chan . Mallee in Western Victoria has been “owned” by the National / Country Party since 1949. It should be an invitation for a future candidate, but the results of the Victorian election suggest that the old rules for bush policy no longer apply. Broad has not said that he retires from the seat after allegations were published in a new idea as he had engaged in inappropriate behavior on a foreign trip, but already a local independence is considering his possibilities.

Conservationists want coves and estuaries along the Great Barrier Reef tested for pollutants after a five-year study found “alarming” levels of certain chemicals in unhealthy turtles on the reef . The researchers have also recommended an increased monitoring of the turtle population’s health on the reef “as an indicator of the reef’s health itself”. The research was launched after a mass strike in 2012, when more than 100 green turtles rinsed dead or dying in Upstart Bay, south of Townsville.

Thinking Time

Australia has most extraordinary national parks, home to unique wildlife, deserts, mountains, forests and holy icons like Uluru. We are rightly proud of them. But after all, as parks give us in recreation and tourism, it’s a sad fact that we no longer show them much care in return, with Australia leading the world at extinction rates and many protected habitats at risk.

Why did a little Guatemalan girl die after crossing the US border? The circumstances surrounding Jakelin Caal Maquin’s death are seized as evidence both for and against the Trumpad Administration’s hard attitude to immigration. Trumps followers put the blame on a parent who would risk his child’s safety on a dangerous journey. The critics of the president’s fear-mongering talk about an “invasion” at the Mexican border blames his policy to drive people into increasingly desperate measures.

As crime syndicates lose their attraction in Japan, the membership drops and some choose to create a new life for themselves on the right side of the law.

What is he doing now?

Donald Trump returns to his favorite subject on Twitter – the Mexican border – just two days after a Guatemalan’s child died there. “Time for us to save billions of dollars a year while having much more security and control!” he wrote .
