Tory thinktank warns Elliott Johnson's parents against broader inquest | Politics | The Guardian
[ public blackmail and scaremongering fearmongering ] The parents of the Conservative activist Elliott Johnson have been warned by the Tory thinktank where he used to work that their son’s mental health and sexuality would be aired in public if they insisted on broadening the scope of the inquest into his death. [...] George Alliott, the lawyer representing Conservative Way Forward (CWF), the thinktank where Elliott Johnson worked until he was made redundant a month before his death, told the hearing that if the scope of the inquest was broadened it would lead to further questions being asked about Elliott’s sexuality and wellbeing. Addressing the coroner, Tom Osborne, Alliott said: “If this scope is to widen, you are going to have to conclude that it will need to involve references to Elliott’s mental health records and his sexuality.” [ wasn't there just a high court decision that mental health records are not allowed in sexual assault/rape cases (ie to deface victim) ]

Economists can't tell Scots how to vote : Scotland +++ The problem is short term vs long term. Long term, Scotland could be a wealthy social-democratic nation along the Nordic model and better off than it would have been as part of the UK (assuming of course on the wisdom of politicians and business leaders). Short term, there will be a period of disruption - negotiations with rUK, budget, currency, EU membership etc. This will result in some economic hardship, unemployment, cuts and so on. How much? Who knows? How short is short term? Maybe 2-5 years. The question is whether the long term gains are worth the short term pain. This also explains why, non-economic reasons aside, older voters are less likely to vote Yes - because they have more to lose from the short term pain than gain long term. +++ !!!
