Consumer confidence has fallen at its fastest pace in 26 years in the wake of Brexit according to the latest GfK survey. An early “Brexit special” reading from GfK in the wake of the June 23 poll pointed to the biggest slump in confidence since 1994 and was one of the first data signals of the likely negative economic toll of the vote.

The full extent and true nature of the “blatant hate” that has beset post-Brexit Britain is today detailed for the first time after The Independent was given exclusive access to a database of more than 500 racist incidents compiled in the weeks since the EU referendum.

Like racism in the US, only the expression of hate is new, the hate was always there in the UK, it just bided its time. You think the sun never set on the British Empire because of brotherly love?

WTF! > Russian politician behind anti-gay law wants to decriminalise domestic violence
A Russian politician who introduced the country’s anti-gay “propaganda” law has said she wants to decriminalise domestic violence, calling the current punishments "absurd". Yelena Mizulina introduced amendments which would reduce punishments for spousal or child abuse to a misdeameanour and administrative offence.

Transphobic hate crimes in 'sickening' 170% rise as low prosecution rates create 'lack of trust' in police
The number of transphobic hate crimes reported to the police has nearly trebled in the past five years, according to figures obtained by The Independent – but low prosecution rates are causing a "lack of trust" in police.

Ramones 40th anniversary super-deluxe edition review – rock boiled down to its absolute essence

I still remember that one time I've seen them live. 1995 in Hamburg (Germany), support act was Rammstein. But we were too late for them... Anyway, the Ramones entered the stage after "the good, the bad, the ugly" the "1 2 3 4" came and it was Punk: 28 songs in like 89 minutes or so :)

On the morning of Tuesday June 28, five days after Britain voted for Brexit in the EU referendum, a single telephone call turned a routine radio talk show into something far more disturbing. Karen, the caller, was sobbing, barely able to contain her fear, or bewilderment.

Scrapping bursaries for trainee nurses will plunge the NHS into chaos and put patients at risk
NHS bursary cuts may be the catalyst for a change we have long feared. The NHS may dip below the surface never to rise again
Hardworking, highly trained and empathetic professionals, nurses form the first and last line in patient care. The image of the nurse is iconic and highly celebrated, and for good reason. Nursing attracts people from every walk of life, rich or poor, and rewards compassion and commitment.

why do these politicians hate the people so much they want us to sicken and die for lack of care. They only like the rich who can afford to see a doctor.

Now we’ve voted for Brexit, great British businesses like Southern rail, Byron burger, Lloyds bank and Sports Direct are finally set free
It’s only a few weeks since the vote to leave Europe, but already we can see the potential for Britain, now we can finally give our country back to British companies run by British business leaders we can trust, such as Philip Green and Mike Ashley of Sports Direct.

Hinkley C: wrong project, wrong price

This project will suck up billions that ought to be invested in reducing demand and developing renewables

I would imagine that for £20 billion, scientists / technologists / engineers could develop advanced storage battery technology, which would make renewable energy a much better proposition.

But, of course, that would go against the wishes of the established fossil fuel power producers, who like the situation which lets them make continually increasing record profits.
