Boris Johnson is ignoring “an epidemic of misogyny”, Labour said, as the party unveiled its own strategy to end violence against women and girls. A government led by Keir Starmer would introduce whole life sentences for people who rape, abduct and murder strangers. It would also make misogyny a hate crime and jail those who identify sex offence victims. The policies form part of a detailed plan by Labour’s justice team, which has been published after the government failed to set out new legislation last week. Boris Johnson has been under pressure to act in the wake of the killing of Sarah Everard, but the Queen’s Speech outlining the PM’s agenda for this parliament, mentioned future “proposals” and no specific Bill. Everard’s kidnap and murder took place as the 33-year-old was walking home from a friend’s flat in March. It sparked an outpouring of anger and fresh demands for action. Labour’s plan includes making street harassment a specific offence and tougher sentences for stalking, rape and domestic killings. The ‘rape clause’ which forces women to disclose they have been raped to claim some benefits for a third child would end. There would also be “criminal sanctions” for tech executives who fail to remove misogynistic content from platforms. Labour’s strategy to end violence against women and girlsWhole life sentences for those who rape, abduct and murder strangersA new offence of street sexual harassmentTougher sentences for rape, stalking and domestic murder, and review sentencing for all domestic abuseMisogyny made a hate crime Criminal sanctions for tech executives who fail to remove misogynistic content from platformsPrison for those who identify an accuser of a sexual offenceA survivor’s support package to improve court experiencesTraining for teachers to help identify, respond to and support child victims of domestic abuse Funding improved support for Black, Asian, minority ethnic, LGBT+, disabled and migrant women.Scrapping the so-called ‘rape clause’ attached to some welfare claimsEnding the five-week wait for UC, to ensure domestic abuse survivors can access the support they needThe strategy would also include training on intersectionality and the experiences of Black, Asian, minority ethnic, LGBT+, disabled and migrant women targeted for violence and abuse.Shadow justice secretary, David Lammy, said: “The Conservatives are failing to protect women and girls from violent criminals, which should be one of the first duties of any government.“With record low conviction rates for perpetrators of sexual violence and an epidemic of misogyny that makes women and girls feel unsafe, this government is treating victims of violence as an afterthought.” Data from the Crown Prosecution Service last year revealed the number of people prosecuted and convicted for rape fell to the lowest level since records began, despite reports of rape doubling. Victims’ commissioner Vera Baird said in her annual report that the figures amount to the effective “decriminalisation of rape”. The PM is yet to publish a strategy to tackle violence against women and girls.Safeguarding minister Victoria Atkins said it will be published “later this year” and will take into account “hundreds of thousands of responses” from a public survey.“Violence against women and girls is an abhorrent crime that this government is doing everything in its power to address,” the Tory MP added.“Our landmark domestic abuse act strengthens protections for victims, whilst also tackling perpetrators at the earliest stage to ensure they feel the full force of the law.”Shadow domestic violence and safeguarding minister, Jess Phillips, however, said: “There have been too many warm words and far too little action from this government.”A Home Office spokesperson said: “Protecting women and girls from violence and abuse is a key priority for the government.“The police, crime, sentencing and courts bill will make sure that serious sexual offenders – including rapists – spend longer behind bars.“It will also further strengthen the regime for managing those who pose a risk of sexual harm, including by improving preventative tools such as sexual harm prevention and sexual risk orders.”Related...Watchdog Exonerates Police Over Sarah Everard Protest – After Speaking Only To Police‘Revenge Porn’ Ruined My Teen Years.

Ann Mukherjee, spirits maker’s North America chief, discusses role of business leaders in public debate, taking chances in brand campaigns and rethinking remote work
In the first four months of the year, our country has churned out at least 10 billion-dollar startups and attained the coveted unicorn status.When we dissect the evolution of these businesses, we notice that while a wide variety of investors provided the necessary financial support to the founder(s), one category of investors abbreviated as, “PE/VC” appears very frequently.Private equity (PE) is actually a broad concept which can be generally applied to investments made in non-public companies.Over the years, as VCs started taking large bets and shovelling millions of dollars into younger companies involved in unproven, cutting edge technologies, their popularity amongst entrepreneur community skyrocketed.The financial institution specialising in funding operations early on is called a Venture Capital firm and the one investing in final stages of company’s development (and even much later in maturity phase) is referred to as Private Equity firm.Consider Singapore-based venture capital firm BEENEXT which closed BEENEXT Emerging Asia Fund in June 2020.
A leading contender in the race to succeed Len McCluskey has declared there was “no wrongdoing” in the handling of Unite’s controversial new £98m hotel complex.Assistant general secretary Steve Turner said that McCluskey and the union’s executive council had acted with “integrity” and with “a sense of responsibility for members’ money” when they monitored and approved the project.In a message to the executive, Turner said that his enemies had misrepresented his recent interview with HuffPost UK, in which he said he would order an independent, QC-led review “if I was genuinely concerned” about the hotel and conference centre complex in Birmingham.The new building, which will house Unite’s regional headquarters as well as a four-star, 170 bed Aloft hotel and 1,000-seat conference centre, has been dogged by criticism as its costs soared by more than £40m.The union insists the extra costs were caused by high standards of unionised labour, the need to strip cladding related to Grenfell changes and the addition of an extra floor onto the hotel.But Unite’s handling of the project has been seized on by Gerard Coyne, the “moderate” contender in the election to succeed McCluskey as general secretary.The race for general secretary was hit by a fresh row in recent days when Howard Beckett, backed by some on the Left, was suspended by the Labour party for calling for home secretary Priti Patel to be “deported”.In his interview with HuffPost UK last month, Turner said that if there was any evidence of “anything untoward” in the project “then absolutely I would have an independent investigation into it because this is our members money”.While stressing that the hotel complex was a “world class” venue likely to bring in revenue, he added that there should have been greater cost transparency throughout the project and said that if he became general secretary he would improve financial oversight by the executive.“We’re all as guilty as anybody else because we’ve all been in the executive [council] meetings where things have been raised and the cost implications have not perhaps been discussed in the way in which they should have been discussed,” he said.It is understood that Turner’s remarks caused intense irritation among senior figures in the union and in a new written message to the executive, he appeared to apologise for giving any impression of criticism of the hotel project.In his email, circulated to all regional secretaries and passed to HuffPost UK, he said he wanted “to clear up some misrepresentation” of his comments “by some of our enemies”.“It is...regrettable that comments made by myself about lessons I have personally learned from the process, and would inform my future thinking on projects, are being used by others in a negative way to raise issues that have been already been the subject of detailed reports, addressed and closed by the executive,” he wrote.“As I have always said, there was no wrong-doing on this matter, in fact quite to the contrary. Learning lessons from our experiences and examining ways we can improve is something I think we all do regularly, and I have, as I’m sure have you.“I am very clear that our executive council, officers, staff and general secretary have always been committed to acting in the best interests of our members and do so with integrity and a sense of responsibility for members’ money. In doing so they have always had, and always will have, my full backing.”Turner – who is seen as the favourite to succeed McCluskey because of his endorsement by the union’s dominant United Left grouping – also stressed that he had intended no criticism of the “lay members” of the union’s executive. He ended his message with the words “in solidarity”.Beckett, who had sat on Labour’s ruling national executive committee on behalf of Unite, has been suspended following his remarks about Patel on Twitter. He deleted the tweet and apologised for its offensive nature.The other contender in the contest is national organiser Sharon Graham, another leftwinger who has led the union’s push to expose working conditions at employers like Amazon.Coyne said: “The current election for general secretary is a crucial moment of decision for Unite members, and the £98m Birmingham project is a test of judgement and leadership for all four of the candidates.“My position has been consistent throughout: I will hold an independent, published inquiry so we can learn the lessons and move on. I haven’t said one thing in public and another thing in private, or ducked the issue. It is now clear that I am the only candidate who stands for real change.” Turner’s letter in full:From: EC Admin Subject: TO MEMBERS OF THE EXECUTIVE COUNCIL FROM AGS STEVE TURNER To Members of the Executive CouncilCc: Regional SecretariesFrom: AGS, Steve Turner Dear colleagues I’m writing to you directly following the publication of an article in the Huffington Post concerning our Birmingham conference facility. The article, one of two, followed an hour-long interview concerning my being a candidate in the upcoming election for general secretary. I want to clear up some misrepresentation of comments I made within it by some of our enemies. Firstly, I am and always have been throughout my 39 years in our union, a champion of lay member democracy, control and leadership of our union and would never do anything to bring that into question. Nothing in my comments could be construed to being anything but supportive of this. Secondly, neither was it in any way an attempt to undermine the statement agreed at our executive in January concerning the facility, which I support whole-heartedly. I’ve visited the centre. It’s a world class facility for our members, a great investment for our union and a long-term asset we can be very proud of. It is however, regrettable that comments made by myself about lessons I have personally learned from the process, and would inform my future thinking on projects, are being used by others in a negative way to raise issues that have been already been the subject of detailed reports, addressed and closed by the executive. As I have always said, there was no wrong-doing on this matter, in-fact quite to the contrary. Learning lessons from our experiences and examining ways we can improve is something I think we all do regularly, and I have, as I’m sure have you. I am very clear that our executive council, officers, staff and general secretary have always been committed to acting in the best interests of our members and do so with integrity and a sense of responsibility for members’ money. In doing so they have always had, and always will have, my full backing.

Nish Kumar has shared his thoughts on the BBC’s decision to axe the satirical comedy series The Mash Report.In March, it was confirmed that The Mash Report – hosted by Nish and featuring comedians like Rachel Parris and Ellie Taylor – would not be returning, with a BBC spokesperson stating that the decision had been made “in order to make room for new comedy shows”.They explained: “We are very proud of The Mash Report but in order to make room for new comedy shows we sometimes have to make difficult decisions and it won’t be returning.“We would like to thank all those involved in four brilliant series and hope to work with Nish Kumar, Rachel Parris and the team in the future.”At the time, several news outlets pointed out that the news came after reports in The Telegraph claiming the BBC’s newly-appointed director general Tim Davie was “planning to tackle perceived left-wing bias in the corporation’s comedy shows”.Davie later branded these claims “nonsense”, with Nish sharing his thoughts in a new interview with the Observer.Nish recalled that he found out about The Mash Report’s cancellation in an email from the controller of the BBC Two, telling him: “We don’t have the money, so we’re gonna move on.”The comedian told the Observer he took the decision in his stride, and when the subsequent reports emerged in the press about the reasons for The Mash Report’s cancellation, he received another email from the BBC urging him to “ignore the article, it’s all nonsense”.However, Nish has revealed he “pushed for a public clarification” from the BBC, saying: “There’s an important principle at stake. The story suggests a person’s political leanings can have a bearing on what they get to do on television, which is unacceptable.”He added that while he doesn’t believe Tim Davie was responsible for The Mash Report not coming back: “The concern for me is that it’s a useful myth for Tim Davie to have out there, because it placates the British right. It gives the sharks a bit of blood.“And when do sharks ever stop at a bit of blood? When do sharks ever say, ‘Thank you for the bit of blood. That was the perfect amount. Like tapas’?”He added: “If the BBC does not say something publicly to make it clear they were not reacting to the political content of the show, it will set a bad precedent. It may well stop people pitching new programme ideas. It is not about any reassurance they may have privately given me since.”A BBC spokesperson had no additional comment besides the original statement when contacted by HuffPost UK.The Observer also reported that production company Zeppotron is in talks with several broadcasters about potentially reviving The Mash Report on a commercial station.Although viewing figures for The Mash Report were usually around the one million mark, it did garner a loyal following during its four years on TV.It was also responsible for a number of viral clips, most notably a scene featuring Rachel Parris, which was titled How Not To Sexually Harass Someone.MORE TV NEWS:Alex Scott Shares Excitement After Football Focus News: 'May Just Let Out A Little Scream'Martin Bashir Quits The BBC On Medical Grounds Amid Investigation Into Diana InterviewBBC Issues Official Response After Complaints Over Prince Philip Funeral Coverage
The pandemic has challenged and changed how most people date and hookup. “Monogamy is preferable at this time,” said Horacio Arruda, Quebec’s National Director of Public Health, during the height of the first wave. Government-imposed physical distancing measures, stay-at-home orders and other public health initiatives resulted in a shift toward online dating. This shift has increased the number of dating app users and the amount of time people spend on dating apps. Tinder says its users had 11 per cent more swipes and 42 per cent more matches last year, making 2020 the app’s busiest year. Since dating apps were…This story continues at The Next Web
