Being on love island has already shown your morals and dignity have been left on some bedroom floor already
Being a contestant has marked you out as that kind of girl or guy
I agree its wrong, but I mean.. a lot of people are putting price points on their own bodies. I see it everyday with premium snap chat accounts. Women ask men to pay all the time so they keep the door open. It depends on the individual though, you cant cast all men as horrible beings when there are many women who willfully choose to profit off of it.
It comes with the territory. The currency in social media is attention and is fueled by interaction with sycophants and people taking their shots. So really, how is it any surprise that being an exhibitionist would draw attention and lewd solicitation from random strangers?
But it’s a “price” to pay for exposing so much of yourself, it’s like a competition of who has the biggest butt in the tiniest wear. Lots are very happy with these offers, of course. No need to judge here, though! Who doesn’t want to travel for free and get nice things?? But just don’t be offended if someone eventually asks you how much you charge, if they can see you - entirely - on a photo pretending you “don’t care” 🤷♀️
Who cares really? If that's what people want to do then so be it, if you advertise or behave in a way that is less then professional and being provocative then expect the less then professional responses, this goes for both sexes.....influencers are the decades biggest joke, that being said, there is clearly a market for influencers right now and I'm sure if I had the means to become a travel influencer I would, been to more places then most people, can't make it pay though
Could always try another career if such propositions are becoming irksome. One that puts a smile on their father's face instead of random men's...should also be noted that if you say yes to a lucrative, temptive offer from somewhere like Dubai then you will definitely come to regret it...there is a reason Americans call women that sign NDAs for excursions to Dubai 'Porta Pottys'!
Someone said, ‘Oh my god, f**k all these influencers!’ And some people clearly thought it was an instruction.
An "influencer" a made up title for a made up job. Get a real job.
Well women make themselves available like meat on social media so you get what you bargain for...
As a non-influencer, it can be really creepy how men hunt through women on social media looking for their next conquest. There is truth in the statement no matter what you think of her.
Profit from a meat market and astounded when somebody wants to buy
Let’s shed some tears on the hard life of « influencers » that spend their time taking selfies and trying to get freebies out of businesses...
Accept or decline, move on, nothing to see here, just how the real world works "unfortunately " or "fortunately ", obviously depends on the individual !
Oh look a so-called influencer has got herself on a BBC News story 🤔
Can we stop giving these intellectual vacuums a platform?
Not to defend that kind of creepy behaviour. But it's the reality of the internet. It's filled with seedy men and trolls. When you become famous on social media, it comes with a price of also receiving the unwanted kind of attention. Can't take the heat, then don't make your life public.
It gets me every time.
"Influencers" why don't they try getting a proper job.
"Tyne-Lexy says she refused the offer, but fears that struggling influencers who do not receive luxury items for free would feel pressure to "keep up appearances" and become vulnerable to these kinds of transactions."
So they should get luxury items for free just to be safe. Got it.
These men need to realize that most influencers look like this without their makeup 👌🏽👌🏽
I'm not meaning to be rude but being a professional shopper or whatever influencers do isn't really very high up on my list of things that attracts me to a woman.
Isnt that how they paid for their vacation trips? 😂
I heard someone say once, if it looks a duck...
What the hell is a social media influencer? 🤣🤣
In other news lorry drivers a bit miffed about traffic jams and nurses quite annoyed by stroppy patients
"For Harry and Meghan, it's an unprecedented move. But for some people, dividing their life between two homes thousands of miles apart is normal."
I feel BBC is heartbroken by Harry and Meghan's choice.
Well, sometime people can live miles away yet they're close and some may live close yet they're miles away 😔
Their best chance for happiness, is when they understand and accept, you can’t “have your cake and eat eat”, real adult life is about sensible compromises. I hope they learn a lesson, and have a good life together.
We won’t pose for a photo with our new baby
You can’t see our baby’s face
You can’t know who the Godparents are
We are not following the tradition with our baby name
He won’t have a title
def going to create even more press interest 🙄🤷♀️
What did they expect
Regrettably they will never find peace and their pairing was a big mistake. A Hollywood starlet met and married her Prince. Happiness only found in a Once Upon a Time story. They had a duty to the Monarch and have failed miserably.
A mud hut in the Serengeti might give them privacy but somehow I doubt it
Seriously getting fed up with this rubbish now. The moral compass in this so called "Great Britain" is so far off its umbelievable. There are people sleeping/dying on the streets, more and more food banks opening and they insist on going on and on about this. Get a grip!!!
His speech was ridiculous and disrespectful to the Queen. the media have not hounded him at all ! She just wants a Hollywood career rather than serve the country as the royal family do. Poor bloke !
Lucky that they CAN afford to.do this when there are many people in the UK.and.the rest of the world cannot afford even ONE house.
I present you the new mascots for the Kansas City Royals.
Looks like same scenario from previous ex husband. Merried a year and she was moving to Canada have an affair with Cheft then left her husband, her husband make her to play the movie. Just let wait and see, time will be the right answer. She wasn't a big celeb anyway. IMO
We are from Wales . Retired to Spain . He and his partner lives in Thailand . And she is from Estonia ... No problem ...
Hey, where’s Prince Andrew these days? And what’s Scotland Yard doing about him? Any progress on the case?
Flying transatlantic multiple times a year yet campaigning for people to be eco friendly. Live you lives, really dont mind but stop with the hypocrisy
Bloody fed up of every news programme being just about these two, just bugger off and do your own thing, but weare not prepared to foot any bills. She will dump him soon anyway once the attention dies down.
Meghan and Harry taught generations that money and titles and fame nothing and never bring happiness 😊😊😊❤️❤️❤️
More drivel for the royalists who think the prince actually gives a toss about the "peasants ". That's all we are to him
We all have the option of how we live our lives so what makes these two any different,good luck to them, have a good future both
...as relevant as a soapie.. the firm and the royals are irrelevant in today's world.. the Queen is the verstige of dignity and prestige of a bygone era
People should mind their own business. Harry & Meghan wants to live how they want. I wish them happiness and all best !!!!
I'm really bored with ridiculous articles. You are talking to people who divide their time between two countries that have absolutely no comparison to being royal. 😴
Those people interviewed didnt mention having a small child though, 🤔just a thought
If it brings the UK and Canada closer together then great
This doesn’t sound very environmentally friendly to me...
Her dream was to become a princes, she couldn't hack it, now she wants out.
In an age of need of curbing flying regularly it seems a pretty unaffordable lifestyle Choice,
Yes, if you like long haul flying at your own expense and if you are not a dependent Royal.
Oh lovely my birthplace, home and old stomping grounds, Barking-Dagenham, Ilford I am glad that we took the way of Prince Harry and moved to Canada.
East London is not what it used to be.
My heart goes out to those affected.
My desire to even return for a short holiday diminishes every time I see such heartbreaking violence in London.
My Dad, Grandma and Uncles would roll in their graves.
Specially Dagenham East , Ilford, Barking, Eastham is very unsafe now a days .
Unbelievable knife crimes going on .
I live in East London what I see is that people don’t want to know if you see something keep it to yourself that is one of the problems as well no one tells the police anymore people are scared to say something
I grew up there. Went to school in 7 kings. It was nice. I went through there recently and theres a tent city of homeless people and every couple of weeks theres another murder. It isnt just Ilford. London and other cities are sinking down a drainhole and successive governments over the past decades are clearly to blame. Very sad.
If the government really wanted to stop this they could stop this within a week.
National service. Actual harsh punishments. Make an actual deterrent for these lizards and maybe crime will reduce. Maybe if police were able to act more accordingly without fear of suspension. Or teachers and parents were allowed to discipline children how they wanted without fear of being reported we wouldn’t have a bunch of disrespectful entitled little brats roaming around.
And people still ask me if miss living in London. This is one of the reasons I can't say I do, and it makes me feel sad.
its not just london either all over the uk 2 stabbed in huddersfeild by teenagers 1 dead 1i critical just for asking a gang of 5 to move from.their works premises at 11 30 on a thursday night shockimg
Not shocked by this. But very sad for the families . What a waste of life . Knife crime and murder in general has been desensitised so much , it's becoming the norm. Taking a life is the lowest form.
All three pronounced dead at the scene???? 🤔🤔 when yday it was 1 dead and two critical in hospital
too little too late step down your not fit for the job it's never been this bad our kids are being killed be different if it was 1 of yours
Can't that be the effects of gangs and flexible human rights on children. It is high time parents were empowered to discipline their children. The law seem to be punitive to parents, hence, increased unruly behaviour.
There is a need to review #Knife Laws. R.I.P.
Police has to start knife defense classes for the benefit of the general public.
It's not just England? It happens Worldwide too .Its time GB got tough on sentence make them harsher or filter out the source and send them.vack.if they off home soil We are a forgiving Country and support anyone who wants to live here - this is what has caused our downfall .Until we stop.and search Gangs will.continue as we have become afraid - even in Schools to set our boundaries because its seen as wrong ..Educate at home first -
Intensive stop and search need from police force, but their hands are tied, because of diversity, rights and so on. Need more officers from all kind of background to sort this issue.
Another typical day in London... unfortunately.
This is what happens when do gooders stop the police doing their job, Stop and search was complained about that much police probably scared of doing it now as the racist card is thrust in their face....
What are you waiting for to declare these increased stabbings acts of terrorism?! It's becoming a hobby yet precious lives are being lost.
Not saying it is, but l speculate it could be gang and drugs related. Get involved in these things then you have to be prepared for the consequences, only saying.
Yeah seven kings all the way to goodmayes peaceful place this is not good!
Knife crime has been around for centuries . So nothing new there then.
If it weren't for FB/social media , you probably wouldn't hear about half the incidents taking place in London or any other part of Britain.
Thank God Sadiq Kahn is giving thoughts and prayers and extra police power until Monday. What a generous and caring person!
How about bring on the death sentence for any arsehold who things it's ok to even consider using a knife on someone!
More stop and search. Yes, more, not less. Stronger sentences, yes stronger, not lower. More police, goes without saying!
Just another normal day in Lawless London
Unfortunately it not just in England violence is happening all all over the world ,we need tougher sentencing plus new laws.
10 rivers in the world contribute ~93% of ocean trash and 8 of those 10 rivers are in Asia.
The plastic fetish is a BAD OLD IDEA! Let's move to making out of bio-degradable alternatives that are probably more expensive, which will slow down production and consumption of packaging. Move to 'fill your own' even in supermarkets. Even a 20-30 % reduction will make a start, then we will be cleverer and cleverer as we move forward.
I don't see many people trying to make a difference. It's up to each of us to curtail our use to save our world.
Yes! I’m not a supporter of China but I support what they’ve decided about bags and single-use plastic. Guess we all will have to be treated like children in order to love clean air, clean water and switch back to recyclable and compostable items.
They could recycle it the way that Canada does. In my province. When you drink from sofa cans, or water bottles. Pretty much anything that comes as a beverage, there is a .10cent recycling fee on those kinds of things and when you return them to the bottle depot, they give you the .10 cent deposit you put on it, back. Then they sell it back to recyclers. 🤷♀️ Works for us.
Why can't we just go back to how we were? Glass bottles to recycle and paper bags? We've just been to Beamish. Not much plastic there. It's not rocket science. Apparently We get better at doing things.... maybe just go back a bit in time on the plastic.
I have fabric bags in my trunk at all times. That saves on the plastic bags.
I rarely drink soda, but when I do, I try to get it in cans. Which I take for recycling with the other metal cans, and get cash.
So much comes in plastic... chips, frozen vegetables, peanutbutter, mustard, ketchup, etc... It is impossible to be free of plastics unless the government steps in.
Considering Asia is the top contributor of plastic in our sea it’s definitely good progress. Happy to see it!
It's a good start China keep going! you can please some of the people some of the time but you can't please all of the people all of the time.. the air and water quality will start to improve 👏👏👏
This is GREAT progress for the environment but I also do feel sorry for the elderly who recycle plastic and cardboard boxes as a main source of income (it’s usually only a few dollars they live on) 😞
These comments we see, cancer remedies, eco this n that, how come new commercial brands and products like tech for example are rolled out in weeks, months at the longest
But still they have tons of plastic bottles and each bottle even has a plastic seal with a plastic strap to carry the bold. Just the millions of straps are such a waste of resources. Looking forward to a single-use plastic free world. When we were in Thailand and saw so many plastic garbage swimming in the ocean I felt so bad for the animals. And still there were Thais that just finished eating and did throw their garbage behind them in the wild. Wish every country would enforce anti-littering laws and start to recycle the stuff.
We’ve had the ability to create Plastics out of Hemp, as well as using it as a Wood/Paper/Cotton/Concrete replacement, is also a Food Source, not to mention a Cleaner Fuel Source.. It cleans more CO2, Creates more Oxygen, minimal CO2 emissions when burned as well.. Its stupid that it isnt used on a wider level.
All the blessings for the effort. In Finland there was a rule, that single use, plastic fruit bags shouldn't be available at cash desk. Ha-ha. Every (second) customer and employee was mocking the rule "becouse the Chinese use so much more plastics!"
I hope will come that day when we will not see any plastic items around. Will be a big step for a cleaner planet. 🤞
All of my pointing out the behavior of the average believer, but this, if they actually do it, could be a big step of real progress.
Believe it when I see it. They are one of the main polluters and they are slowly taking over key businesses world wide. They can do it quicker than that if they want as can we all. Just stop it. If our food etc is sold to us in different packaging the people will buy it as in everything. Individuals can do so much, it is government and industry that need to change and do it quickly.
YES YES AND YES. While one of the other biggest polluters (the US) is still not taking action!
When will the UK stop selling everything in plastic???? Plastic bottles and wrapping everywhere. You should regulate all companies to sell in recycled paper bags and packaging! All companies!
Wow that’s amazing we’ll have cola and milk in glass bottles and shopping bags made of string. Just like in the 1960’s when it was said to be old fashioned.
Thanks to Trump America will increase its use and take in any no one else wants.
There is no more money in plastic so they are trying to scrap it. With recycling, they will not make as much profit as they would with the introduction of new products. So these companies introduce new products, they start campaigning for the earth's defence and push the public's attention towards the new products they want to generate huge profits from. Same as the medical market. Read "Bad Pharma" to understand how we are being played.
And by the way, where are you going to get the replacement? Paper-based containers? And those come from trees. Plastic is good if reuse many times and dispose of properly. I think governments must do more on proper disposal rather than a ban.
Using glass would help and reduce plastic use - that’s what it started in ... simple ways are always the best.
Put your money where your mouth is. You too Americans. You can’t be outraged without real action.
The rises because they have developed a new rapid diagnostic test. Those suspect cases in hospital were identified immediately.
In the last 10 years we have been warned by the WHO of Bird flu, SARS and Ebola and now Coronavirus... makes you wonder is Agenda 21 a real plan to reduce the world population...
Do you want to know a great way for a government to change the subject? Release a virus.🤭
The air is so polluted there, it doesn't surprise me.
I bet you it's more that more and the CCP just isn't telling
I’m wondering how BBC will link this to climate change. 🤔
if they confirm 139, then the actual number could be hundreds of thousands. These guys are almost 1.8 Billion in terms of population. Imagine the speed of virus spread(epidemiology) within such a populous region. China is known for opacity of information.
With the Chinese New Year this weekend, people will be going home to China. There’s a high chance they will get infected and carry the virus with them and spread it. Similar to the plot of World War Z but unfortunately this is happening in real life which makes it extremely scary.
You all wanna eat dogs and cats and this is what will happen and need more to happen.God ddint create all the animals for human to eat so and being cruel to innocent animals so now it's your turn to suffer
« The health body has promised to step up monitoring during this week's Lunar New Year celebrations, when millions of people will travel to be with their families. »
All people travelling from China into other countries should be immediately quarantined to make sure whatever this virus is does not spread elsewhere or we may have a situation 100 times worse than SARS. I laugh at the fact that airports are screening people who feel ill but how many viruses out there dont start showing symptoms for days and even weeks. Either we get pro-active immediately or when new cases start popping up in other countries we cant cry about it because we allowed it to happen.
So this is where the Z apocalypse is going to start 🤔
Virology is fascinating! I’m sure it will turn out to be zoonotic, stemming from an infected animal not well cooked and then consumed in China.
Those suspected carrying the virus should be quarantined. People from the area said to have the mysterious virus shouldn't be allowed to go out of its periphery so as not to spread thus increase unsuspecting victims.
Maybe flights from these places should be cancelled until the spreading of this illness is contained.
Sadly seeing those comments, so called Cilvilization! When my country suffering from bad things, what are you saying?
We have flights being cancelled because of this and I agree until the virus is contained to not be allowing people in or out
Flights to and from China should be stopped immediately to curtail its spread.
The most polluted city so far, where new strains of viruses originate. Seclude China from the outside world!
With CNY around the corner, this is a nightmare and a disaster waiting to happen
What is the source of all these new viruses? Someone experimenting?
Now HERE'S something to freak out about instead global warming or whatever the heck they are calling it this year. I hope this is not Captain Trips breaking out! 😀
The timing right before New Year travel is not good.
Bushfires, floods, storms, outbreaks ...... I’d say the planet has had enough of us
Humans Smile and play the environment Destruction card 'Go on Mother Earth your turn'
Mother Earth looks up saying nothing and plays the Pandemic card...
Bathurst, approx 3 hours west of Sydney and the Blue Mountains, received 2mm in storm that passed through around an hour ago (now 2.10pm) and on Friday between 4 and 9am received 20mm. Both due to storm cells. The shy platypus is endangered with only South Australia having it officially listed. The areas that truly need the rain now aren’t getting it or only some areas. The amount we receive runs off not seeps into the dry ground. [Australia]
Droughts aren't fixed by one storm, it can take several years to fully get back to the new normal if that ever happens again.
Heartbreaking and tragic for all. My thoughts are with all the innocent wildlife that are caught in the path of these devestating out of control fires. 😞
Really unfortunate...hopefully the fires are doused soon!
This is sad, and the Australian government seems so inept. They are worried about tourism rather than ecological protection and conservation which would actually bring more tourism. Awful, will never visit that horrible place where the largest holocaust of animals is occurring now.
Continuing hugs and prayers for all the people and animals there from Carpinteria, CA! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
Rain, more rain, fill those water sources rain, just praying for rain..
Travel Alert: Bushfires are impacting parts of Australia. However, thankfully most parts of Australia remain unaffected and are welcoming visitors.
like Cairns in the Far North Queensland, Great Barrier reef,
Daintree Rain forrest. Great time to get a good deal😉
Use this search engine instead of Google everyone. They plant trees when you search through them. Its free and helps the planet! ❤️
John Scott. That answers that question. More rain needed, it’s still a “thing”.
So sad for my friends in Victoria.....horrific.
Prayers for more rain
Didn't they arrest over 20 arsonist affiliated with climate change activist groups? Also would of helped if the Politicians let firemen do controlled burns but we know which party runs Australia.
Why not ask for support from other Nations? This not only affect OZ but Global
This is the result of Veganism
So bad a moment
They are still at it
Changing world 🌎
Facebook allows freedom of speech
Guess the prayers fell on deaf ears.
This earth is a trap 🌎👎.
Nobody can leave it, without dying.
Nobody got here with their knowledge?
- hungry stomach is for slavery to work for aliens.
Aliens > human > animals > plants > dirt
Thanks BBC News
Barely any coverage in WA for the fires now, it’s as if they’ve suddenly stopped burning
Congrats to Mr Musk and his SpaceX team for the awesome work
Way to go, Elon. A real world test of blowing up the booster instead of a computer simulated test. Expensive but well worth the cost to prove to the world that it’s the real deal.
Amazing what a stoner can do.
Great achievement for humanity !!!Congrats to spaceX Team and Mr Musk!!!
Great. More space debris.
Hopefully this was the first and last time the escape system will be used
Cool. Be smart. Don’t rush.
Elon Musk is a man of the century. Thanks to him, we will soon be able to get a ticket to Mars to see Aunt Jenny.
Just thinking about global warming I wonder if they have payed congestion charge because high pollution levels like in London..
I hope the japanes billionaire and his new life partner didnt miss this flight again
Wow, congrats, but it's only for reach people,
This is the equivalent of the life preserver they put under your seat on an airplane. How many people have ever been saved by a life jacket on an airplane?
we will always remember.
I’ll be happy if they travel light speed
Musk called brave British cave rescuer Vernon Unsworth a “pedo guy” on Twitter and referred to him as a “child rapist”, both claims unwarranted, then walked away scot-free from justified libel charges. Now everyone wants to shake his odious hand.
Well done planet earth 🌍
Is this a real picture or artistic impression? If real, congrats to the photographer.
Spot on again SpaceX, amazing
Is anyone else worried that these tech millionaires seem to be spending a lot of money trying to get off earth rather than clean it up?
Seems humanity is on course for the moon again ... cooool!
80seg.... very similar to the Challenger
An alternative to the flimsy ceramic tiles used on discovery and other missions is needed that's obvious.
Meanwhile Boeing can't figure out how to get its "Starliner" to the ISS and still have fuel left to get home.
I hope Australian donations & fire relief is getting to those in need😩👍🏼
This is tragic😢😡
Standard bureaucratic procedure. Always hold some back to ensure you have control and a job. Bureaucracy survival more important than victim survival. Tragic misuse of donations meant to help people.
It's just sad that they can't seem to find people who are competent and trustworthy to fill these positions of trust...😔😔😔
For the average low level public servant it would be a huge error, probably a crime, to give out government property without correct paperwork and approvals. Worse than keeping it safe while higher ups decide who it should be given to and when.
They fired that person, but those higher up knew...just essentially got rid of one scapegoat. It is heartbreaking thinking of all those who could have used the supplies but didn't get them due to political greed.
Happens all over the World and things haven't changed in years... grew up in West Africa in the 60's and we'd get Oxfam, etc foods in the markets! Corruption is everywhere there is a disaster....
Lots of agencies do that. The Red Cross allegedly parks containers of emergency supplies in various places, never keeps track of them, and when they are recovered, the containers may have rusted out and the supplies have long expired or are contaminated.
It was no different with the donations sent to the former Yugoslavia we took 4 convoys of aid to Croatia to find big charities stockpiling in hangars and warehouses so we took the donated items direct to orphanages,hospitals and refugee camps right into the hands of the people who needed it
Hmmmmmm so sad and tragic but reality of deliberately making the masses suffer by corrupt politicians and officials
Is this the same Puerto Rican government that said the island was still a mess months later and objected to the federal government saying its lack of recovery progress was do to the ineptitude and incompetence of local government ?
The main land needs to take over. The government in Puerto Rico is corrupted. Many people need help.
So... just another example of how local government failed to adequately provide for those who required assistance following a natural disaster! Remember, when a government is big enough to provide for your needs, it is big enough deny your access to the same. The fact that this happened in a U.S. Protectorate (supported territory), it can happen just about anywhere!
Got to say the bloke pulling the pallet has got it all wrong. Twisted, not driving with his big muscles, not looking in direction of travel. Yep. An injury waiting to happen. !!!
This is an embarrassing follow up for the people that were screaming that the Trump administration didn't send any aid to Puerto Rico and then attacked him when he refuted their claims.
Same thing happened during Hurricane Katrina. Aid from dozens of other countries was also burned because of regulations...
I am a proud Puertorrican, but it enrages and saddens me that my beautiful island almost always makes national news because of our corrupt government.
It's so sad that our beauty gets tarnished by our corrupt government 😞
There had to be more than one person who knew about this warehouse, or other warehouses and why did they come forward before now?! The whole mess stinks to high heaven!
Yes I know Mr. President was right but my people are suffering
Where is the oversight for the donations and the aid? The local official should get fired, but the main problem is oversight to ensure this doesn’t happen.
Yep, Puerto Rico was criticizing Trump for not supporting them with aid after their terrible hurricane.... corruption at the top of their govt.
How cruel is this? People were suffering and they stockpiled it for self gratification.
When the public give donations to disaster causes in America, it just stays cash. Buried. In someone's account. No one knows whose account it stays in though. Then people forget.
Who knows why they would have been forgotten the fact is it was 80 out of 600...
Haiti had the same issue but it was being sold and people are still living in tents
Our president pulls millions of dollars from FEMA disaster relief funds to give to ICE, while saying, "America first."........
I'm glad she was found alive and well, but shouldn't we be asking how she just happened to "wander off?" I have a 3 year old and I make sure I have an eye on her when we're outside and she knows not to leave the house.
Glad she’s been found alive and well. What a Loyal and loving dog 🥰
I said Hi" to that dog👌
So pleased the little girl was found save and well with her dog
So glad she’s ok!
Glory be to God almighty ❤️❤️❤️
Further proof that dogs are one of our greatest blessings. Mine are rad! Walter & Cheryl♥️
Thank God the ending is happy....clever loyal dog 🐕💚💚💚💚💚
Dogs really are wonderful creatures better than a lot of people in fact.
Great story mans best friend didn't get that name for nothing god bless the child and her dog
Ooooh God save Australia, just after the strong wild bush fires to strong winds damaging property and then this again heavy floods all causing death and damaging property. ALMIGHTY GOD SAVE AUSTRALIA 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
Brilliant story thank God
God bless her and her little angel
Dogs are our guardians 💓
Thank God great news!!
Mostly, dogs / pets are more loyal than humans.
We are hearing amazing stories of dogs here and there. Wonderful!
Glad seeing them back
what's going on in Australia.. bush fires and then floods!
"Mr Trump and his legal team said the impeachment charges failed to allege "any crime or violation of law" and were "the result of a lawless process that violated basic due process and fundamental fairness".
The lawyers said Mr Trump "categorically and unequivocally" denies all allegations."...
So, they deny all allegations that they say aren't alleged????
Impeachment is not dangerous. It is a vital component in keeping our democracy intact. The process was designed not only to punish those in office who have done something wrong. But equally to show if someone has been wrongly accused. It is, therefore, imperative that witnesses are called to testify, and that Senators put aside their childish party politics in order to serve in the public interest. If trump is guilty, he should be punished accordingly. I would say this for any politician. If, while evidence is being given, other politicians are implicated, no matter their party affiliation, they too should be punished. Washington is a mess. Trump has created a bigger mess. It's time the children were disciplined.
I live in Oregon, a progressive state, there is no defense, and blocking Congress from all witnesses and documents SCREAMS of guilt. Common sense. If anyone has proof of the innocence of Trump speak now. Just my humble opinion as an American being held hostage by the most dangerous man on the planet.
Forget the underpinnings and focus on this. When a PÒTUS orders someone not to appear before the people's house irrespective of the circumstances ( however small), it's an attack on the constitution. Plain and simple. Should that behavior be tolerated? One don't think so,
not if the constitution is to survive.
Vetting the TRUTH to UPHOLD the CONSTITUTION is NEVER WRONG.
Attempting to deny, distort and withhold is.
The electoral college elected this fool, the people didn't. In all my years I've not been so embarrassed for my country. Other countries are laughing at him.
Quote: 'This is a brazen and unlawful attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election' . This bit really made me laugh, trying to fix that little gem in peoples minds and taking them away from the real reason for impeachment ..... Trumps unlawful actions : )
This is really fantastic. He is acknowledging on the basis of fact he's guilty as hell. His only defense is some cracked claim that if we adhere to the Constitution somehow the Nation is endangered. He's just made the perfect argument why needs to go.
Wonder if he'll even live out another 4 years, judging from the looks of him. And if the senate clears him, God help us because he will feel all the more invincible, and only leave more carnage behind him.
So hypothetically speaking let's just say that a panel of respected experts on the law pertaining to government convened after this impeachment trial and on the evidence provided by both sides said a guilty decision should have been the result. However, as is likely, the senate finds the president has no case to answer. What would that make the senate and government process look like? I would say a complete and utter sham. This is what the senate is risking by stating already that the president has no case to answer and that they will vote along party lines.
Divide and Conquer!!! Works each and every time and 45 knows it and plays this con game very well. It's up to us to get off the couch and vote him out in massive numbers!!! Get registered an keep making sure they haven't removed you up until the very end... Cast your vote
I don't think he knows what the word hoax actually means. It is something that didn't actually happen, something fake. Well, here's a revelation for you, Mr. Trump, the impeachment actually happened. The removal from office probably won't because of the cronyism in the Senate, but calling something a hoax that actually happened, demonstrates a lack of understanding for the word.
American political systems confuse me, shouldn't a trial be overseen by a court rather than voted members to avoid this very situation?
I mean Democrats desperate to impeach which undermines their case and the Republicans who do not look at the evidence??
A well-educated and empowered electorate is dangerous to foes of democracy.
No, this "president" and his contempt for our laws, his ignorance, his apathy, and his megalomania are dangerous.
Dangerous for the super rich elite pulling the strings, indeed.
Dang! He looks haggard in that picture. He never looked great, but I never thought he needed to take a nap before.
Trump is corrupt, he has shown how easy it is to destroy democracy. He is and always was completely morally, mentally, spiritually and intellectually unfit for the office he holds. He has to go.
It's dangerous not to do anything, and to allow him to abuse his power for his own gain
He cheated in one election. He is cheating in another election, he got caught and is being stopped from doing it again. But impeachment is usurping our democracy? Spin doctors extraordinaire.
His actions are dangerous. The impeachment is seriously required.
Yes dangerous for the democrats. Why you don't report on hunter Biden, and that they found cocaïne in his car when he had a accident. Why don't you let the people see the transcript of his phone call with zelensky.
To defend this man is to mock democracy.
Dangerous but the best thing to do in order to restore the White house's dignity it deserves.
Dangerous for law breakers. Right now the country is in peril fromTrump's illegal actions. The truth will emerge.
It’s not about disfigurement being celebrated!
It’s about realising that character , bravery and resilience come in all physical forms, that man was amazing; children need to know that our appearance has nothing to do with intelligence and capabilities!
Of course he should be celebrated. He endured a lifetime of pain, humiliation and ridicule, something no one with a disability should be subjected to. Even more, it should act as a cautionary tale to our society: Intolerance will not be tolerated
It seems diversity doesn’t include everyone - sadly especially at a time we should be able embrace and admire people who have such beautiful souls and strengths of character 😢
His appearance should not be issue.. It's not the only reason behind the statue ..!!
Ah saw his skeleton at the London. He was a truly unique and wonderful man. Sir Frederick Treves a surgeon at the London looked after him ..he also removed Edward VII appendix. The king survived. Brilliant history .
I don't remember these people making a fuss when Alison Lapper put her statue on the 4th plinth in Trafalgar Sq. That was hailed as celebrating the disabled. Boy, what hypocrites some people are.
What about his life are we celebrating if not his disfigurement?
I mean, Helen Keller, blind and deaf - known for her bravery and continued education of the masses.
The woman with no arms and stunted legs - honestly that statue was thought provoking in its simplicity and told a story by itself of a strong woman embracing her body and the beauty found in its peculiar form but magnificent function.
What did he do or who did he inspire during his life that a statue is warranted?
Mr. Merrick may have been disfigured but his grace, intelligence and charm were/are more than enough to warrant a statue. He was disfigured through no fault of his own and overcame hardships that lesser men could never have endured. For that alone he deserves our respect and a statue. Please give this man every consideration when considering whether or not to erect a monument to his incredible life.
Show him the ultimate human respect and take his skeleton out of a glass cabinet and bury him as he requested. Let that be a memorial to his sad life and the cruelty of humans.
If they can put a statue of that monster Thatcher up somewhere then of course Merrick deserves a statue!
It’s not about appearance, but character and his contribution to medicine and society cannot be forgotten.
Ridiculous! The strength and bravery this man showed the nation should be applauded not dismissed. Mr Merrick was of above intelligence and; from what I have researched, had impeccable manners along with being a true gentleman. I take my hat off to this amazing man.
After all he went through in his lifetime, this poor soul is still judged by narrow minded pricks long after his death. This just shows nothing has been learned. 😢
Leicester is celebrating Richard 111, famous for his hunchback but not defined by it!
John Merrick's should be remembered as disfigured as well as gentle and intelligent!
if you change your mindset and look at him as being born with that face as we all are with our own, it’s no longer ‘disfigurement’ and instead just how he looked. i wonder when we’ll get over responding in horror to bodies unlike our own.
Beautiful film about and extraordinary beautiful gentleman, why shouldn't there be a statue to honour him, just because he had a disfigurement doesn't take away what a beautiful man he was on the inside, and that's the most important thing x
Merrick was forced to be an 'exhibit' and an attraction in his lifetime - honour him with respect - so yes, a statue is fine - but think about what you're doing and do it the right way, leave him his dignity as well. It will take a very clever artist to capture what was inside.
From what I have read, that he overcame his deformity to become quite a connoisseur of the arts and even was excepted in London society for his appreciation of them.
He should be celebrated for allowing himself to be studied by medical science, he is allowed great progress and understanding of human deformities and how they affect the human body both physically and psychologically
I had to invigilate dental exams at the London Hospital where he lived in Whitechapel. I went up to his room but it's just used to store cleaning materials. The place hasn't changed very much and it felt like walking onto the set of the film the first day I was there. A creepily interesting place ...
I 100% know John's story.
He was an amazing individual.
He understood his condition and in turn other conditions.
He should be celebrated as a person of a very unfortunate circumstance that finally found some (a little) peace in his existence.
A monument in his name is very fitting to the simple understanding and recognition of individuals problems.
He came to terms with his issues and physical discrepancy/handicaps.
He was a great man because of his understanding of his own and others issues.
Disfigurement isn't being celebrated, his spirit on the other hand clearly is. Get a bloody grip.
"Ugly"? God, this is so depressing.
Growing up, I always heard stories of how he was a man of great compassion and self-determination. He found his own way out of the workhouses, which we forget were a literal hell on earth.
I don't know, it feels like a slap to the face.
But the spirit who must endure people's ignorance and lack of empathy should definitely be celebrated!
But survival in adversity should be celebrated.
I’m glad my grade 4 teacher Mr. Mota taught us about Joseph Merrick and “elephant man syndrome”.
His spirit is strong.
Oh how diversity bites back when it suits some people! He was an amazing man that needs to be celebrated x
