Defence review: PM could send 10,000 troops on to streets - BBC News
Trident - about 31bn // https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deterrence_theory - Up to 10,000 troops could be deployed on to British streets in the event of a Paris-style attack, David Cameron has said, as he announced plans for an extra £12bn for military equipment. The PM also said two 5,000-strong "strike brigades" would be created, as it was revealed the cost of renewing Trident could increase by £6bn. [...] the government's £178bn defence spending plans for the next decade // Comment: The extra £12bn going to the Ministry of Defence of course comes at a cost to other departments. Every penny that goes there has to come from somewhere else, and the depth of the cuts elsewhere will be revealed by George Osborne on Wednesday. Welfare, the police, and support for business are all likely to be hit. [...] what ground forces exist in Syria to take and hold land where IS is destroyed? Billions of pounds of new British military kit can't answer that. [ Drones and Bombs don't replace boots ]

A World Anti-Doping Agency commission report has accused Russia of running a “state-sponsored” doping programme. Russia has said it is “fully committed to the fight against doping in sport."

Überwachung in Großbritannien: Neues Gesetz vorgestellt - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Werbekampagne hat sich gelohnt. Am heutigen Mittwoch veröffentlichte Innenministerin Theresa May einen Gesetzentwurf (hier als PDF), der britischen Geheimdiensten noch mehr Macht verspricht. Die Spione können, sobald die sogenannte Investigatory Powers Bill vom Parlament verabschiedet wird, ganz legal das tun, was sie bislang ohne solide rechtliche Grundlage machten. Gleichzeitig sagte Innenministerin May, sie wolle die Aufsicht über die Geheimdienste stärken. [...] Theresa May betonte im Parlament, dass es nicht darum gehe, den gesamten Browserverlauf zu speichern, sondern nachvollziehen zu können, mit wem Verdächtige kommunizieren.

Average monthly rent hits record high of £816, highlighting housing shortage | Money | The Guardian
Rents rose across most of England by averages of 6.3% and 8.5% in past year, say separate studies, but fell in the north-west, north-east and Wales [...] Housing charity Shelter said the figures “highlight the plight of an entire generation stuck in insecure and expensive private renting”. On Tuesday, official figures underlined the continuing difficulty of buying, as UK house prices surged to a record peak of £284,000 on average in August. According to the report from Your Move and Reeds Rains, rents rose to a “new all-time record” in September and are up a typical 6.3% on an annual basis. It found that rents are now almost a quarter (24%) higher than in January 2010, while the index of CPI inflation is just 14% higher over the same period. // bonuses and pay and profit for building companies are up as well. actively restricting demand to push up prices marginally (compounding over time). nearly all property sells before even the first brick is put down for the development!]
