Repeat after me:
There is NO point increasing sentences for crimes if offenders are NOT being identified, arrested, charged & convicted

1️⃣Conviction rate has fallen 18% last yr
2️⃣Rape conviction rate is the lowest since records began

It’s what you get with Underfunded Justice

Tories getting upset because the words of one of their government advisers have been quoted back at them. Good, let's have a bit more of that.

Nice thread from Chris Cook

@xtophercook
I see Dominic Cummings would like to get rid of the bad bureaucracy and replace it with good bureaucracy. we should fund the good breakthrough science - and less of the [checks notes] not-as-effective incremental stuff.

I do think the central point about him is that he doesn't understand what the _purpose_ of bureaucracy is

The school reforms of 2010-13 are a lesson to anyone taking the Cummings shtick seriously: they tried to cut the role of bureaucrats in schools and accidentally turned the DfE into a massive, local authority with no operational expertise or local accountability.

His legacy in schools is massively increased bureaucracy for school leaders and a wildly ungovernable central department that has struggled (unsuccessfully!) to stay inside its expenditure limits.

Oops.

Julie Burchill fires new publisher identified as a white nationalist

https://www.theguardian.com/books/2021/ ... ationalist

Quote:
Julie Burchill has dropped the new publisher for her book Welcome to the Woke Trials after the publisher was identified as a supporter of the UK white nationalist group Patriotic Alternative .

Tabatha Stirling is the sole director of Stirling Publishing, an independent based in Scotland. On Monday, she announced that she had acquired Welcome to the Woke Trials: How #Identity Killed Progressive Politics, months after it was dropped by publisher Little, Brown over Burchill’s comments about Islam.


:D

Safe to say that Ms Burchill hasn't had the best of weeks...

Was tidying up my files the other day, and found a wealth of poorly "photoshopped" artwork I've submitted to FTN in recent years. Brought on a bout of nostalgia.
