The Labour party has pulled ahead of the Conservative party for the first time in three years, according to the latest ComRes opinion poll. The party is now on 37 per cent, two points ahead of the Conservatives. The most recent survey shows the party picked up three points from the previous poll taken just before George Osborne unveiled the government’s comprehensive spending review, suggesting public anger over cuts rather than public support for new leader Ed Miliband.

That was 77 cents less than last year’s holiday, and the lowest Memorial Day gas price in 17 years.Pump prices have been suppressed since February, due to Covid-19’s limiting effects on gasoline demand.

Since sinking to a 75 percent deficit, gasoline demand in Florida is now down only 10-20 percent from a year ago.“Gas prices are back on the rise now that Floridians are driving more, but it’s unclear how high they’ll go,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “While additional price increases are possible in the coming weeks, drivers are currently in line for the cheapest summer at the pump in 15 years.”Florida gas prices increased 11 cents last week.

Supporters of embattled teachers’ union CNTE march in Morelos.Morelos, Mexico, July 10 — Many public schools in the Mexican states of Oaxaca, Guerrero, Chiapas, Tabasco and others will remain closed tomorrow even though the school year has not ended. The real education will take place in the streets of Mexico, where teachers, parents and other supporters continue their strike against the privatization of public education.On July 11, thousands of members of the CNTE (Coordinadora Nacional de Trabajadores de la Educación), which has a membership of over 200,000 teachers, will march in the capital, Mexico City, to demand an end to so-called “educational reforms” that will in effect lead to privatization and the end of public education in Mexico.The CNTE, a radical alternative to the official teachers’ union, the SNTE (Sindicato Nacional de Trabajadores de la Educación), has rejected President Peña Nieto’s demand that all teachers take a national exam in order to keep teaching. According to the CNTE, this evaluation is punitive, costly and has nothing to do with changing the educational system. In addition, like in the United States, students are now forced to take costly standardized exams. Parents are being forced to pay for school supplies, books and exams. Each “public school” now requires parents to give up at least one day’s pay per year for their child’s education. Parents are mandated to pay a fee or work at the school cleaning, painting or doing other tasks. For most parents in Mexico, these educational “reforms” are impossible to meet.On June 19, the police opened fire on a group of protesters supporting striking teachers in the southern state of Oaxaca. Oaxaca’s people have a long history of organizing to overturn the privatization of public services. Twelve protesters were killed by the police and at least 100 injured, although the government denies using bullets. (The Mexican government lives in a state of denial.) A number of leaders of the CNTE have been incarcerated for several months.According to Jonathan Ackerman, a political analyst from TeleSUR, “We have, on the one hand, our completely unarmed, peaceful teachers, who are defending their jobs, who are defending the tradition of humanist critical education in Mexico, and on the other hand, the government, which is doing everything possible to impose a so-called education reform on these teachers.”The CNTE and the communities in Oaxaca, Chiapas and other states have responded by calling an indefinite strike until the Mexican government and its secretary of education (SEP) enter into a dialogue with striking teachers. In the first week of July, hundreds of roadblocks were set up by teachers, parents and their supporters in Mexico City, Oaxaca, Chiapas and other areas. The response of the state continues to be one of repression against the teachers.In addition, the government has waged a disinformation campaign from the beginning of the teachers’ struggle, attempting to turn the population against the teachers. However, the recent massacre of unarmed demonstrators in Oaxaca, the indefinite incarceration of CNTE leaders and the exposure of government lies about the teachers are breaking through the government’s plans. One day, the SEP announces that it will pay reparations to the families of the murdered protesters. The next day, it withdraws the offer. SEP says it will meet with the CNTE and then refuses. The parents of Mexican public school students, particularly in the impoverished states of Oaxaca, Guerrero, Chiapas and Michoacán, have allied themselves with the striking teachers.This week, the Zapatistas of Chiapas (EZLN) announced full support for the teachers and are donating 10 tons of food to the struggle for justice. Many unions and communities of Indigenous people have joined the picket lines, the blockades and the marches, despite the ultimatum of Interior Minister Miguel Ångel Osorio Chong that they must dismantle the struggle or else.The CNTE has called for a large protest in Mexico City on July 19, exactly one month after the massacre in Oaxaca. Teachers will drive in convoy from Oaxaca and other areas starting on July 17 before a massive convergence in the capital.The union will continue its indefinite strike until it wins changes from the government. International solidarity by teachers’ unions and others in the U.S. and around the world is needed for this important struggle.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

In some of the FIRs allegations are quite serious. …Any delay by the Investigating Agency in not completing investigation of the cases registered is seriously impacting the justice delivery system as the guilty are not being brought to court for trial even after decades of registration of cases against them,” the bench comprised of Justices Rajesh Bindal and Rajnesh Oswal observed. The bench has accordingly issued notices to the Home Secretary, Secretary Department of General Administration, UT of J&K, Director General of Police and Director, State Vigilance Bureau, UT of J&K. The order was passed in a suo moto case registered by the High Court after Justice Bindal came across the fact that many criminal cases registered against Government employees were not taken to their logical conclusion and in many of them even chargesheets had not been filed by the investigation agencies. This prompted the Judge to seek information from all District Courts in the UT regarding FIRs where chargesheets had not been presented. “Astonished” by data received, he requested Chief Justice Gita Mittal to take up the issue on the judicial side pursuant to which the present division bench was constituted. “There are FIRs registered under RPC or other statutes, in which for more than a decade, challans have not been presented. In some of the FIRs allegations are quite serious,” the bench observed. As recorded in the order, cases have been pending before the Anti-Corruption Court at Jammu since 1998, where challans have not been filed. Similarly, FIRs registered for offences under RPC at Jammu are pending due to non-presentation of challans for about a decade. Some of such FIRs pertain to offences for counterfeit currency or under the NDPS Act. The Court has now asked the Home Secretary, the DGP and the Director SVB to show cause why investigation in these old FIRs with serious offences has not been completed till date and challan presented in court. Inter alia, the bench has asked them to supply information of (i) Investigating Officers of such cases; (ii) Present status of investigation; (iii) Whether there is any system of monitoring of investigation in the FIRs registered; (iv) Whether there are any administrative instructions for taking action against such IOs. Further, the Secretary General Administration Department has been asked to apprise the Court on the following issues: (i) departmental action taken against the government employees involved in corruption matters and the status thereof; (ii) whether any of the officer/official was placed under suspension on account of his involvement in a case under PC Act and if yes, for how long? (iii) whether employees involved in cases for serious offences were granted further promotions and other benefits and at that stage whether the factum of registration of FIR against them for serious offences was part of the note put up for consideration ? (iv) How much of these employees are in service and working at which post and the post on which they were working when the FIR was registered? The court be also apprised of their present place of posting. (v) If any of these employees have retired from service, whether retiral dues have been paid to them? The matter is now listed for hearing on August 10, 2020. Case Details: Case Title: Court on its own motion v. UT of J&K & Ors.

Gavel GamutBy Jim Redwine(Week of 21 March 2016)WHO GETS TO CHOOSE AND FROM WHOM?America’s two greatest strengths are its diversity and its democratic form of government. Our diversity provides input from the talents of many. Our three separate but theoretically equal branches of government keep power from consolidating in one group by dispersing it among the populace. The public maintains the right to hold power by having the right to vote for the Executive and Legislative Branches, both state and federal.As for the Judicial Branch, not one federal judge is chosen by election and in many states judges are selected by a small number of people. The trend in America is that more and more judges at all levels are chosen by fewer and fewer people. The public usually has no input in such selections. These unelected judges may ostensibly stand for review every six or ten years or so, but in reality, they serve as long as they wish.In each of these articles on America’s judiciary I have unequivocably stated I do not believe elected judges are any better or any worse than appointed ones. It is not the product that is the issue. The issues are: (1) who gets to select the judges; (2) from what pool of candidates can judges be taken; and, (3) how do we get rid of judges we do not want? In other words, does our current system by which we select some of our judges place the diversity of the Judicial Branch and our democracy at risk?Because the country is presently concerned with the replacement of Justice Scalia, I will concentrate on the United States Supreme Court (SCOTUS). But the growing trend to eliminate the general public from control over those who judge them is an issue at all levels.As for SCOTUS, the following facts may help illustrate my concerns. Starting with the President having the constitutional duty to nominate justices and the Senate having the constitutional duty to “advise and consent”, the general public is excluded from direct input on those whose decisions affect their lives.The President must choose the nominees from somewhere, yet neither the Constitution nor any federal legislation gives any guidance as to what qualifications, if any, the President is to consider.While the Constitution does not require it, all justices have been lawyers. America has over two hundred law schools. Harvard and Yale are only two of these two hundred yet all eight of the sitting justices come from either Harvard or Yale.President Ronald Reagan attended Eureka College in Illinois. Reagan nominated Anthony Kennedy, a Catholic, white, male who graduated from Harvard.President George Herbert Walker Bush, a Yale graduate, nominated Clarence Thomas, a Catholic, African American male who also went to Yale.President William Clinton, a Yale graduate, nominated Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a Jewish female and a Harvard graduate. Clinton also nominated Stephen Breyer, a Jewish male who graduated from Harvard.President George W. Bush who went to Yale, nominated John Roberts, a Catholic, white male, and a Harvard alumnus. “W” also nominated white, male, Catholic Samuel Alito who went to Yale.President Barack Obama, a Harvard graduate, nominated one female Catholic Yale graduate, Sonia Sotomayor, and one Jewish female Harvard graduate, Elena Kagan. Obama has also nominated a replacement for Scalia. That nominee, Merrick Garland, is a Jewish male, graduate of Harvard.It is neither nefarious nor surprising that presidents would nominate candidates from the two law schools with which they are most familiar. It is also no sin that only Jewish and Catholic judges are represented on the Court. It is probably simply the natural consequence of drawing all of the Supreme Court judges from an extremely small pool. That the culture, ethnicity, religion and numerous other sociological factors might be similar is to be expected when dealing with a small sample of Americans.The problems that need to be addressed are the unintended weakening of diversity in the pool and a lack of democracy in the selection process. In a country of 330 million people containing 50 states, hundreds of law schools, numerous religions and ethnic backgrounds, an entire branch of government should not be populated by only two religions and two law schools, regardless of which religions and which law schools they may be. This is especially true where one person nominates the judges and the terms of those judges may extend far beyond the term of the president who nominated them.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail
