Knife crime: Theresa May 'not listening' says ex-police chief - BBC News
Speaking on BBC Radio 4's World at One, Lord Stevens - who was commissioner of the Met between 2000 and 2005 - criticised Mrs May's handling of crime and policing as PM and when she was home secretary.

He said the Home Office had not been listening for the past five or six years.

"All you got from the Home Office, and in particular the home secretary at the time, now the prime minister, was 'our reforms are working'.

Child protection services near crisis as demand rises - BBC News
The Child Welfare Inequalities project concluded deprivation was the largest single factor in families becoming involved in child protection.

In the most deprived areas about one child in every 60 was in care, compared with one in every 660 in the wealthiest areas.

With poorer areas spending more money on those in care, the team also concluded these authorities had seen more cuts to preventative services.

Leading doctor warns frontline NHS services in danger of "disappearing altogether" | HeraldScotland
“We are unable to attract high quality candidates from throughout the UK as a result of Scottish Government policy in relation to remuneration and working conditions,” he said.

“This pattern is slowly eroding the calibre of the workforce as well as the numbers available to provide the service.”

He added: “It is only a matter of time before every health board in the land is so afflicted as services deteriorate and, in some areas, it is inevitable that the day will come when some services will disappear altogether. This is not scaremongering. This is what is happening.”

UN report attacks austerity budgets for growing inequality | Business | The Guardian
Austerity budgets adopted by governments across the world since the 2008 financial crash are to blame for undermining the job security of millions of workers and threatening the progress made by women in the workplace, according to a UN report. [...] The report argued that giving women access to decent employment could only be achieved if governments maintained investment in affordable childcare facilities and care for the elderly. When they make steep cuts in early-years education and healthcare provision they are effectively asking women to pick up the slack, it said.

Alzheimer’s surge adds to burden on NHS of ageing population - The Scotsman
This marks a rise of 33.4 per cent on the same period last year and more than double the 257 deaths that occurred in the same three months in 2014. A further 936 deaths in Scotland were a result of dementia, the figures showed, up 16.9 per cent over the year – although this was said in part to be due to changes in the cause of death coding software.

If the country was economically bankrupt in 2010, it is intellectually bankrupt in 2017.

NHS staff 'quitting to work in supermarkets because of poor pay' | Society | The Guardian
NHS staff are quitting to stack shelves in supermarkets instead of caring for patients because they are so demoralised by years of getting pay rises of only 1% or nothing, hospital bosses have warned.

The health service is now so understaffed that patient safety is being put at risk and people with mental health problems are experiencing delays and setbacks as a result, NHS leaders say.

Why exporting isn't just about shipping - BBC News
Barriers to services trade have proved to be harder to deal with.
They come in the form of regulation - not the tariffs or taxes that impinge on commerce in goods. [...] So liberalising services trade is more complicated than it is for goods. [...] The World Trade Organization's rulebook includes something called the General Agreement on Trade in Services, or GATS.
WTO member countries have made commitments during past negotiations about the extent to which they allow foreign suppliers access to their services markets. These vary from country to country and are listed in "schedules" attached to the agreement. [...] EU won't make commitments on allowing foreign suppliers to provide some key publicly funded services, including health and education.

“Ministers will say the underlying legislation only allows sales that are good value for money, but it takes time to know if that has happened in practice.”

Brexit has allowed the banks to get off Britain's naughty step | Business | The Guardian
The even better news for the banks is that they are no longer hated. Far from it. Much of the concern about how the UK will survive outside the EU has centred on the future of the City. For years, the banks have been trying to find a way of getting themselves off the public’s naughty step. Brexit has provided them with an opportunity that has been seized with relish. The City has played the post-referendum game masterfully. [...] The recession that the banks caused and the austerity that resulted created the sense of “them and us” – the notion of an unbalanced and unequal Britain – that led to Brexit. [...] constant demands that the government secures passporting rights to allow UK authorised institutions to operate freely across the EU27.

Birmingham council chief: years of cuts could have catastrophic consequences | Society | The Guardian
Birmingham city council’s chief executive has said there could be “catastrophic consequences” for some people in the city because years of cuts have forced it to slash funding for key services for vulnerable people. [...] now only the “super-deprived” were being helped, and even these remaining services were under threat.

Mark Rogers, who runs the biggest council in England, said the effects of six years of austerity meant Birmingham’s youth service had “all but gone”, homelessness prevention services had been cut by so much that rough sleeping had quadrupled, and far fewer elderly people were eligible for care at home.

The trouble with our trains - BBC News
Although Crossrail 1 will provide 10% more capacity for London's squashed commuters, when it opens in 2018 that capacity will soon be gobbled up by the capital's rapidly growing population as it heads towards 10 million by 2030.
There will need to be Crossrail 2 and quite possibly 3; not just High Speed 2, but also an HS-3; further electrification of the network, digital signalling to release more capacity on the track, relief of a multitude of pinch points, vastly more rolling stock… the list goes on.
It's easy to get up to an investment figure well north of £150bn, never mind the cost of operating and maintaining an expanding railway.

NHS child mental health services are failing the next generation, say GPs | Society | The Guardian
Up to four in five children with mental health problems are being denied access to the treatment they urgently need in some parts of England, according to new NHS figures. Despite high-profile pledges by the government, some of this country’s most vulnerable children are being “bounced” off the NHS: sent to a school counsellor or charity-run service to fill in the gaps. This did not happen by magic. Since 2010, child and adolescent mental services have endured cuts of £85m.

‘The City’, by Tony Norfield - Banking as seen from the belly of the beast
[ current account deficit only affordable (thus also living standards) bc of City of London ] This is a man who writes without irony about “financial parasitism”. In The City: London and the Global Power of Finance, he seeks to document just how the UK and the US extract their pound of flesh from the rest of the world by dominating the financial flows that make international trade possible.

He argues that London’s leading role in foreign exchange trading, derivatives and overseas lending is an extension of its imperialist past. Creating complex financial products and charging for them has enabled the sector to requisition for the UK and London — and, of course, bankers themselves — a disproportionate share of the benefits of global trade.

'Graph of Doom' warning to Highland councillors
deprived areas have low tax base to fund welfare and social care, and w demographic bubble, less income tax receipts. this is a double whammy to fund demand of babyboomers. // In a paper to councillors, officers quote research such as a London borough council's "Graph of Doom" showing the effect of spending cuts on services.
The Highland officials also make reference to political commentators describing a period of "perma-austerity" for local government.
They recommend that the council reviews its priorities.

Not enough doctors for 7-day NHS, says Royal College head - BBC News
There are not enough doctors to run a seven-day NHS in England, according to a leading doctor.
In a speech on Tuesday, Royal College of Physicians president Prof Jane Dacre will warn ministers the issue must be addressed if their policy is to work.
She will highlight research that shows vacant posts are not being filled and gaps in rotas are being seen.
It comes as ministers are locked in a dispute with junior doctors over their plans for improving weekend care.

The NHS mental health hospital closed with just five days' warning | Society | The Guardian
Critics say lives have been put at risk by the closure of Bootham Park in York, with 30 patients having to be discharged or moved [ // cutting 30 beds and 400 out patient access. // ] The closure of York’s only public adult mental health hospital with just five days’ warning could put lives at risk and should be subject to both an independent inquiry and a judicial review, according to a local MP and lawyers representing patients. [...] There is speculation that Bootham Park, a Grade I-listed building with a chapel and grounds in central York, will now be sold off to private developers. In an email exchange seen by the Guardian, one NHS trust boss said: “I think it is the first time an NHS hospital has been closed … in such a short period of time. Even Winterbourne View was not closed within four working days of the Panorama programme [showing abuse of vulnerable patients by staff] being broadcast.” [ graphic, beds cut by 10's of thousand ]

NHS child mental health money 'missing' despite investment - BBC News
[ demand resource mismatch, chronic sick population siphoning off funds more and more ] Last summer ministers said they would invest an additional £143m in the services this financial year. The Mental Health Network suspects the funding has been used to support other NHS services. [...] The additional funding was part of a £1.25bn investment over five years announced by the chancellor in the Budget in March 2015. [ others said, with knowledge, that the 1.25bn is no investment rather than plugging holes, gaps, cracks and crevasses in services ] [...] "It doesn't seem to have turned into posts on the front line.

House of Lords votes to keep income-related child poverty measures | Society | The Guardian
[ trying to redefine poverty! ] Iain Duncan Smith, the work and pensions secretary, announced the proposals in July, prompting dismay among child poverty charities. He said the government would scrap its measurement of child poverty and the aim to eradicate it by 2020, while replacing it with a new duty to report levels of educational attainment, worklessness and addiction. Under his plans, the old measurement, based on the percentage of households with below-average income, would continue to be published as a government statistic but would no longer be seen as a target. However, peers voted by 290 to 198 to keep the targets, in a move to prompt the House of Commons to think again. [...] [ TRICKLE-DOWN! ] David Freud, the welfare minister, opposed the amendment on behalf of the government, saying “life chances” indicators were a better way of monitoring what was happening and of directing resources most effectively to tackle the problem.

Council tried to cover up failings after Poppi Worthington's death | UK news | The Guardian
A local authority criticised for failing to protect Poppi Worthington’s siblings for almost a year after her death did not discipline social workers and instead applied for a draconian order in an attempt to cover-up the failings, documents show. Thirteen-month-old Poppi died after she was found with serious injuries at her home in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, three years ago. A high court family judge concluded that Poppi’s father, Paul Worthington, sexually assaulted her shortly before her death and she died as a result of the injuries she suffered during the assault. It has been revealed that her siblings were not taken into care until after their parents were arrested in August 2013.

Care homes 'could solve NHS bed-blocking' - BBC News
Every day thousands of elderly patients are unable to leave hospitals despite being medically fit to do so, because care is not available in the community. But Respublica said if care homes took them in it would be a "win, win". The think tank said it would free up hospital beds, while bringing in vital investment into the care sector. Currently there are about 4,300 patients stuck in hospital each day because of problems discharging them - taking up over 4% of all general beds in hospital. The report, which received funding from care home providers, said if current trends continued the numbers could increase by about 1,000 in the next five years, costing the NHS £3.3bn in total over the period. It said if this money was spent on care homes they could take on all the patients facing delays, while investing in staff and facilities.

Secondary school places for all 'undeliverable', councils warn - BBC News
[ planning taken out of hands of councils ] [ first the teachers strike (2014), then the doctors strike (2015/2016) - bit.ly/1T3QTfc ] The legal duty of councils in England to ensure that every child has a school place could soon become undeliverable, local authorities have warned. With a population bulge about to hit secondary schools, councils want powers to open new maintained schools and to compel academies to expand. Thousands of children are due to hear on Tuesday which secondary school they will attend from September. However the government says the warning amounts to "scaremongering". The population bulge which has put primary schools under pressure will start hitting secondary schools this year, according to official figures. Last year councils had to provide 2,740,000 secondary school places, but this will rise to 3,287,000 by 2024, the figures predict.

Virtually all hospitals now in deficit - BBC News
[ demand of ageing chronically sick population outstrips all planning 5 years, again and again and again ] Adam Roberts, of the Health Foundation think tank, said: "These figures are beyond dire. A comprehensive national plan is urgently needed." The situation raises the prospect of the Department of Health failing to balance the overall books, which would be a huge embarrassment given the extra money the NHS is getting. In autumn's spending review the government announced the NHS would get an extra £8.4bn this Parliament. A big chunk of that, £3.8bn, is being put in next year. [...] [Commentary:] This time the impact is likely to be felt in terms of what doesn't happen. The government has promised the NHS extra money in the coming years to help it cope with demand and transform itself to become fit for the 21st century. But if that goes on paying off debts, the NHS will be on the back foot straight away. The risk then is that a vicious circle develops ... &! bbc.in/1lOPU4z

Should Ofsted get a US boss? - BBC News
In particular, they are considering candidates who have been involved in the charter school movement, state-funded independent schools, with a similar ideological DNA to academies and free schools in England. The big impact of charter schools has been in the most deprived urban areas, credited with re-energising schools that had been in a state of chronic decline. It's a claim rejected by their opponents, particularly in US teachers' unions, who say that the successful glitz and PR around charter schools is not backed up by any significant long-term advantage. Some charter schools do well, some do badly... like any other type of school, they argue. The current mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, has been accused by charter school groups of putting up "roadblocks" to their expansion.

NHS mental health funding falls in England - FoI figures - BBC News
[ minority of patients. Can't do that with cancer treatment! Public sentiment would rip you apart. ] Figures obtained through a Freedom of Information request showed the budgets for mental health trusts fell by 2% from 2013/14 to 2014/15. This compares to a rise of 2.6% in hospital trusts' operating budgets, according to analysis by the Health Foundation think-tank. The Department of Health said mental health care funding overall was rising. In the year to April 2016 the budget for mental health trusts was projected to rise just 0.3%. Of the 53 out of 59 mental health trusts in England which responded to the FOI request, 29 said their budget would be lower this year than last. [...] funding is not keeping pace - and many are facing cuts. [...] In Scotland, mental health spending was up just 0.1% last year, and down a projected 0.4% this year.

Jeremy Hunt makes the wrong diagnosis - Jason Beattie - Mirror Online
Jeremy Hunt claims the new terms are necessary if the government is to deliver its ambition of a 7-day NHS. But there is a deeper issue of why Mr Hunt is pressing ahead with these reforms when there is a the far bigger crisis facing the health service - the dire state of social care. To put it another way: why is the Health Secretary trying to build an extension when the main house is in danger of collapsing? In the last parliament the Coalition government cut social care by more than £3billion despite warnings it would put unsustainable pressure on the NHS as elderly patients require treatment which could have been prevented if they had been cared for at home. The NHS is now suffering from the consequences of those cuts.

Teacher shortages in England, spending watchdog confirms - BBC News
Teacher shortages in England are growing and the government has missed recruitment targets for four years, the official spending watchdog has said. It means 28% of secondary physics lessons are taught by teachers with no more than an A-level in the subject, the National Audit Office report says. Ministers have a "weak understanding" of local teacher shortages, it adds. The government said overall teacher numbers had risen and blamed unions for "talking down" the profession. While the overall number of teachers has kept pace with rising pupil numbers, teacher shortages are growing, particularly in poorer areas and at secondary level, according to the authors. [...] "Unless government radically tackles the pay, workload and excessive accountability that teachers currently suffer, this is a situation that will get increasingly worse," said Ms Blower. //&! bit.ly/1LfqZNB
