Labour has been accused of conducting a McCarthyite “purge” of new left-wing supporters in a last ditch attempt to prevent Jeremy Corbyn winning the leadership race.

"A clear, transparent, well-written code of conduct is step 1 of winning my trust. Enforcing that code of conduct with the biggest burden affecting those who do wrong is step 2. If there is a step 3, it’s that you communicate to the industry what you did, why, and what you might do differently in the future."

Interesting, but i'm not sure it proves anything without details of the causes of the deaths. 

I don't know what the stance is on someone who has a terminal/life threatening condition, but could still be considered fit for work (not all kinds of work, but fit for some kind of work). This could also have an effect on things. 

Are we saying the govt. should predict the likelihood of each applicant dying and grant welfare based on that?

It's an interesting statistic with interesting implications if follow analysis shows it to be truly representative.

"Three panels proposed for SXSW Interactive — about gaming and interactive media — are being attacked by GamerGate right now. One of them, a panel about VR, isn’t even related to feminism or social justice issues but is being targeted anyway because Brianna Wu is on it.

Please consider registering to vote at the SXSW website — it’s free — and voting up these three panels"

Eyricka Morgan was a black transgender woman. She was an activist. She was fatally stabbed. She was my friend.

Warning: This petition contains details about sexual assault. So far today, two women who've read up about Roosh V (Daryush Valizadeh) and his views on rape, women and 'dating' have ended up being physically sick.  It's that repugnant.  His books, the 'Bang' series, are a thinly veiled guide to getting away with rape.  He's campaigned to end rape -- by calling for it to be made legal .  Amazon currently stock all of his books [ here ].

Quality, quantity, and price all good, and the best garlic bread I've tasted. Delivery a bit slower than estimated, but this was peak time on a bank holiday Monday.
