    Corruption in the EU? No way. I'm not having that. Here when are they going to investigate the ongoing corruption in MEPs expenses that have never been signed off?

    One corrupt MEP has been caught. I’m sure the other 704 are panicking.

    I always said the EU was a cesspit of corruption.

    Hopefully, the EU will confiscate everything the guilty one has, along with money from immediate family members, let then spend a good time in Jail and never see a single penny in pension. The behavior of these individuals is utterly discussing and more disturbing would be the acceptance of such behavior..

    Many Experts agree this case is just the tip of the iceberg ,and many decisions about the Ukraine War , about Sanctions and Energy Prices and Weapons Companies , Donations and Crypto Currencies for Kiev, etc. , have been heavily influenced by Political Donations, Cash like in this case, High – Paying Jobs for Family members, Vacations also like in this case , Apartments and Hotels , stock options , shopping sprees , etc . The EU Parliament is corrupt and the problem is that the Committee or Inquiry group that will be established is made of the same or other compromised operatives .Notice that so far not a word about the Lawyers, Lobby's, Advisers and own Qatar individuals have been exposed . In the Ukraine War Money machine there are at least 10 large Lobby's, Lawyers, Advisers and Bankers involved , imagine the " action " behind closed doors .

    Pardon us Brexiteers if we do take a little comfort in these revelations. Corruption was prominent in the reasoning of more agile thinking vote Leavers Saying. # I Told You So# . This is what happens when you live in the imaginary Land of collective Eldorado.
    There is always a spoiler.

Horses are great therapeutic animals because of their energy. They really match your energy. If you’re excited, they will mirror that. If you are calm, they reflect that back to you. They get you to focus on controlling your energy.

We can’t take it anymore – righton

Published

http://www.euronews.com/ It is estimated that up to 70 percent of women are the victims of violence at some point in their lives. It is a massive problem that governments are struggling to address, with help organisations calling for better prevention programmes and support services.

Governments are under pressure to tackle all kinds of gender-based attacks including domestic violence, but also rapes and sexual assaults and the likes of trafficking and forced marriages.

One place where the subject is high on the political agenda is Wales in the UK. The semi-autonomous government in Cardiff is vowing to take more action to help victims. A new law designed to specifically deal with violence against women is in the pipeline.

And there is no shortage of evidence that good support services are desperately needed.

Euronews was given permission to film inside a newly-built women’s refuge. The location is secret, with tight security to protect the women and families inside. There we met a woman forced to flee her family home.

“My health was deteriorating, my mental health was deteriorating, and I was at an all-time low, which lots of women are,” the woman told Right On. “Because you put up with mental cruelty, physical cruelty, being abused for such a long time that it drags you down to an all-time low. And if I hadn’t been able to come to the refuge, I don’t know, I would’ve most probably been long gone by now, because it can do terrible things with your mind and body and everything.”

This is one of a handful of shelters in Cardiff. Victims of violence are able to stay here in safety until long-term solutions are found. Refuges often provide communal living, but here there is room for up to 12 families in individual apartments.

Jane Currie, a refuge support worker, told Euronews: “When you have seven to ten families all living in one house, sharing one kitchen maybe, it can become a very volatile situation between mums and children and everything.

“And if you’re in that situation, home, which you’ve just fled, can become maybe a place to return to with your children, because you’re not sharing it with seven other families. So individual flats, purpose built, is the way forward.”

The Welsh government is currently reviewing submissions on its draft law, which is described as ground-breaking. The aim is to improve coordination across public sector services, with the appointment of an independent advisor. Services would also be strengthened and integrated, with professional training and public awareness boosted.

Charities are hoping that public bodies will have to follow rules on a minimum duty of care.

Right On’s Seamus Kearney reported: “Education is also part of the draft law. Primary schools would have to teach children about good and bad relationships. Secondary schools would go into more detail about the different kinds of violence and abuse.”

In these tough economic times, however, finding the money to help erase violence is more difficult. There is a constant battle over government priorities, and charities have a hard time keeping outside financial support. European legislation protecting victims’ rights comes into play in individual countries, and some state awareness campaigns are also co-funded by Brussels.

Help organisations can also apply for European funding, but many of them have to rely on local funding. While cutbacks in the UK start to be felt, women’s groups in Wales are hoping services there can be maintained.

Paula Hardy, the Chief Executive of Welsh Women’s Aid told Right On: “I think there’s always going to be tension between the amount of money that’s available and the services that are needed. And what we need to do is work together, to ensure that we’re looking at what the evidence is telling us, looking at where the need is and maximising those opportunities.

“And that’s about organisations coming together, working together to ensure that services are available that meet the needs of women and children that are living in Wales.”

That hope is echoed by victims who are thankful there was someone to turn to in times of crisis.

“Lots of women are abused, they’re beaten,” the anonymous resident of the refuge said. “Men sometimes do terrible things to them, and you can only take so much. And this place is a lifeline. You know, without this I would never have been able to do it, and I don’t think a lot of other women would’ve as well.”

Italy: Coastguard rescues almost 1,000 migrants in 24 hours

Published

Dramatic footage from Italy’s coastguard has captured migrants’ desperate attempts to reach the safety of a rescue vessel after their own boat overturned.

In less than 24 hours, Italian coastguard teams have saved almost 1,000 migrants in seven separate rescue operations between Sicily and the North African coast.

But in addition to the 941 migrants saved, at least 10 bodies have been found in the southern Mediterranean.

Coastguard spokesman Filippo Marini told Italian television that it was …
