The grocer has withdrawn the cards from sale, suspended production and started an investigation after a six-year-old girl found a message from workers inside the charity card. Tesco donates £300,000 a year to the British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK and Diabetes UK from the sales of the cards.

Donald Trump’s Attacks On Sadiq Khan Is Confused, Exposes A Nervous And Anxious President

Advertisements

The President of the United States has quote-tweeted a Katie Hopkins tweet in which both attack Sadiq Khan while wholly misunderstanding what the Mayor of London actually does

The Met Police. Officers says they have lost control of London streets. Apparently they lost control of their twitter account too.

 

Lets take a look;

Last night the Met Police Twitter account was hacked resulting in a number of tweets calling for the release of drill rap artist Digga D.

TWITTER

Never one to miss an opportunity to critique Khan, who just so happens to be Muslim, Hopkins appears to have decided that among the responsibilities of being mayor is the role of social media manager.

The controversial former columnist tried to equate the hack with the shocking incidents of violent crime in the capital in recent months.

A few hours later, a presumably sleepy president was logging onto Twitter and couldn’t resist joining in.The result? A perfect example of why Twitter can sometimes be the worst place known to humanity as 16,000 (and counting) people tacitly endorsed the president’s tweet with a like or a retweet.

But the explosive Mueller hearings happen next Wednesday; that’s why Trump is stressed by ‘stupidying’, stupifying paranoia, anxiety and dark worry. Donald Trump is sweating right now. The President of the United States has lined up some foils to obscure and distract Mueller hearings – that’s the reason he used Ilhan Omar and her Squad earlier this week; he thought the hearing were happening this week; the rally was meant to rebutt Mueller but lo and behold – it wasn’t to be; Mueller did not happen as schedulled but Wednesday nex week instead- so Trump turned to his primary political weapon RACISM; he had to give a speech to those poor souls congregating in North Carolina for goodness sake. They were already there – hence the now-infamous ‘send her back’ chants that have provoked humanity around the world which he had been engineering since entering The White House. >>>CRIMSON TAZVINZWA; AIWA! NO!

Trump foils

  • President Barack Obama
  • Hillary Clinton
  • Ilhan Omar
  • The Squad- 4 African American Congresswomen
  • London Mayor Sadiq Khan … this particular foil; simply he is Muslim

 

This is the second time this month that Trump has retweeted Hopkins – just weeks ago he promoted a tweet in which she praised a number of far-right politicians and said “the fightback by proud nations is on”.

Hopkins listed the names of four European politicians, all of whom have a track record of populist and discriminatory views.

Hopkins also said that “god-willing/jihadi-failing” she will be alive to see “Boris Johnson in Number 10” and “Trump in the White House” and “Netanyahu building Israel”.

The four right-wing politicians named in Hopkins’ tweet are:

Exclusive: Two Saudi Sisters On Run From The Kingdom Authorities – And Their Father Who They Say Is An Abuser

‘If my father caught me he would kill me’. Our report on the Saudi sisters fleeing abuse and the guardianship laws that deny women rights and safety.

Lindsey Hilsum is Channel 4 News’ International Editor

Two sisters, who say they suffered years of abuse at the hands of their own father, have become the latest Saudi women to flee the Kingdom.

Draconian guardianship laws mean every Saudi woman is assigned a male guardian, usually a father or husband, whose permission is needed to marry, travel and even play sports.

Women, throughout their lives, are always treated as minors.

Dua and Dalal say they fear being “disappeared” if their father tracks them down.

Lindsey Hilsum went to Istanbul to speak to the sisters for this exclusive report.

Israel – ‘Not MLK, but Malcolm X’: Is Jerusalem Having Its Black Lives Matter Moment?

Both countries are experiencing police violence against black citizens, but experts say there is major difference between African-American and Ethiopian-Israeli communities//

Jerusalem (CNN)An off-duty police officer was in a playground with his family when he saw two men fighting, according to police accounts, which have been challenged by eye-witnesses. When the officer identified himself, police said the men threw stones at him. Fearing for his life, the officer pulled the trigger, police said. The bullet hit a 19-year-old black man, who later died in hospital.

Worka (R), the father of Solomon Teka, mourns over his body during his funeral.

Anger in the teenager’s community erupted after the shooting. In the following two days, protesters torched cars, damaged ambulances and burned tires as the violence spread across the country.
As the investigation began into the circumstances of the shooting, the officer was taken into custody and subsequently released and placed under house arrest. But it was too late to prevent the rioting in which dozens were injured on both sides, and 136 protesters were taken into custody, according to police.
It’s the type of violence sparked by perceived racial injustice that we’ve often seen in cities in the United States.
But this happened in Israel, and the black man who died, Solomon Teka, was Jewish.
