Stories this week that caught my attention..
Case 1.. too hot to handle
Apparently a US police department facebook page was overrun by comments by lovestruck women and men, who just loved the look of this guy.
His picture has so far been “liked” by more than 40,400 people, has been shared 4,300 times (plus 1 now)and has almost 13,000 comments.

Case 2.. is full of Khat
Khat.. deserves a post all of its own for sure, but for now...
Khat is to be banned in the UK
News reports stated that the change in the law was brought about due to complaints by a number of Somali women who complained that Khat, was /is getting in the way of family life. ( and was/is the cause of many problems ) The men say it's just like drinking coffee in a cafe, or an Englishman going to the pub.
The ban, will have a serious impact on the lives and livelihoods of Khat farmers, and cafes run by members of the Somali community ( which will definitely impact on family life)

Question is.. why has the government decided to ban Khat now..?
I struggle to believe that it's simply down to supporting the well being of Somali women
i'll be honest though.. I wouldn't want to share my husband with Khat if it means he's 'off key' and I never see him.. but a ban??
Case to answer
White working class children failing in school..?
Thier proposed solution.. ? make the school day even longer! [click]
Well, at least the haven't simply blamed ..
Laziness or lack of ambition
Chips on shoulders
White attitudes ;)
I don't know.. If they ever say that Chinese children failing.. we got problems..
On a serious note.. having somewhere to complete homework is important.. which is why housing conditions, and space, living wage (at least )for employed parents, good childcare etc are so important.
It's never just one thing.
Anyway..til next time...
