Victims lawyer: Rolf Harris ‘woodworm’ prison song ‘must affect parole’

Victims lawyer: Rolf Harris ‘woodworm’ prison song ‘must affect parole’

Rolf Harris should be denied parole after he reportedly called his victims “slimy little woodworm” in a song he has penned in jail, their lawyer says.

Victims’ lawyer Liz Dux said the lyrics – contained in a letter obtained by the Mail on Sunday – showed he had “no comprehension” of his crimes.

The “revolting” song had left one victim “totally distraught”, she said.

Harris was jailed last year for 12 indecent assaults against four girls, one aged just seven or eight.

BBC faces £500m cuts as Tories plan to freeze licence fee for five years – deja vu?

Culture, Media and Sport Secretary John Whittingdale is poised to order a five-year freeze in the annual £145.50 licence fee. And a new review is expected to support Tory moves to stop people who refuse to pay the fee being sent to jail.

and in 2010.………… via the Guardian

BBC licence fee frozen at £145.50 for six years

http://www.theguardian.com/media/2010/oct/19/bbc-licence-fee-frozen-six-years

and the Telegraph in 2010

BBC ordered to accept six-year freeze in licence fee

http://www.theguardian.com/media/2010/oct/19/bbc-licence-fee-frozen-six-years

 

Maybe it’s just a nudge towards a alternative fix?

However, former BBC presenter Jeremy Paxman argued the licence fee is doomed. ‘It clearly can’t last,’ he said. ‘As computers and TVs become indistinguishable, a tax on a particular technology becomes almost impossible to justify.’

 

 

William Hague’s rape summit cost taxpayers £5.2 MILLION but ‘has achieved nothing

William Hague’s rape summit cost taxpayers £5.2 MILLION but ‘has achieved nothing

At last summer’s End Sexual Violence in Conflict conference, co-headed by Angelia Jolie, the former foreign secretary pledged to help “end one of the greatest injustices of our time”.

The pair promised justice for the hundreds of victims of rape in the war-torn Congo – but no one has yet been prosecuted, and rates of sexual violence in the region have increased.

Tamah Murfet, of the International Rescue Committee’s women’s protection unit in the Congo, said: “Funding is very low for tackling sexual violence – across the board it has decreased.

“Major donors have dropped out of this area and it’s become very difficult to even get minimal coverage.”

EU Court of Justice opens door for lawsuits against Greece

EU Court of Justice opens door for lawsuits against Greece

Hundreds of lawsuits by Greek government bondholders in Germany had been on hold since 2013 pending the ruling. The bondholders argue that Greece in 2012 forced them to swap their securities with new government bonds of a significantly lower nominal value. While none of the claimants accepted Greece’s initial offer, the government carried out the proposed exchange.

The EU court’s decision comes days before it is due to rule on another German case with the potential to send shock waves across the euro area. Judges are scheduled to deliver a verdict on whether ECB president Mario Draghi overstepped the mark with a 2012 bond-buying plan he designed to help save the euro.

Researchers Predicted In 1971 That Debit Cards Would Become The Ultimate Spy Tool

Researchers Predicted In 1971 That Debit Cards Would Become The Ultimate Spy Tool

In late October of 1971 a group of academics and technologists gathered at a conference at Georgetown. They were given the task of devising the most comprehensive (yet invisible) surveillance program imaginable. What they came up with sounds an awful lot like our current debit card system.

This was the question posed to the researchers in 1971:

Suppose you were an advisor to the head of the KGB, the Soviet Secret Police. Suppose you are given the assignment of designing a system for the surveillance of all citizens and visitors within the boundaries of the USSR. The system is not to be too obtrusive or obvious. What would be your decision?

What amazing, unobtrusive surveillance system did they come up with? It wasn’t a network of intercepting every phone call or placing cameras on every street corner. They imagined an electronic funds transfer system, or EFTS—a system that looks strikingly similar to the debit card system we all use today.
