Welcome back to Pause and Listen! We are so delighted to share our fourth series with you all. In this exciting episode, we take our #TimeToDeliver campaign on letterbox contact to Downing Street. Join us as we walk down Whitehall to Downing Street, to hand in our open letter to the Prime Minister. The letter is calling for changes to the current letterbox contact system, which is failing adopted children, birth parents and adoptive families. The system is outdated, complicated and does not always lead to long-lasting, meaningful relationships. Families need consistent support and a system based on relationships, not administration. That's why we're letting Boris Johnson know it's #TimeToDeliver on letterbox contact.  In this episode, we are joined by women who have all worked with Pause, as well as Larrah, a Pause Practitioner, and Hannah, the Coordinator for Pause Plymouth.  Hosted by Clare Laxton and Phoebe Green  Produced by Fi Gilligan Music by Ben Jacob Editing by Will Jacob To find out more about Pause, visit: pause.org.uk   Read our open letter here.

Boris Johnson wollte schon als kleiner Junge gerne Weltkönig werden, wenn er groß ist. Immerhin hat er es zum Premierminister von Großbritannien geschafft und das, obwohl seine Karriere eigentlich schon nach seinem ersten Traineeship bei der Zeitung The Times hätte zu Ende sein müssen. Damals hatte er bei seiner ersten Titelstory ein Zitat erfunden und wurde natürlich prompt gefeuert. Dass er gerne mal lügt, das weiß mittlerweile wahrscheinlich die ganze Welt über ihn. Dass er den zerstreuten Schussel nur spielen könnte, glauben viele. Und trotzdem schafft er es, nicht nur jede Krise zu überleben, sondern sogar erfolgreicher aus ihr herauszukommen, als er hereingegangen ist. Wir gucken in dieser Folge auf Boris Johnsons Leben, seinen Charakter und fragen uns, ob nach dem Misstrauensvotum gegen ihn diese Woche, seine Karriere jetzt bald zu Ende sein wird.

Technically, Boris Johnson is safe for another year. But is he really? Deputy Political Editor of the Spectator Katy Balls joins the IFG to discuss the policy challenges ahead for the Prime Minister, as he attempts to unite his party following a devastating confidence vote. Plus, IFG senior researcher Jess Sargeant has the rundown on the government's proposed changes to the Northern Ireland Protocol. “Boris Johnson has been very clear that he'd have to be dragged kicking and screaming from Downing Street.” - Katy Balls “In Wakefield, Labour are 20 points ahead of the Tories. Hammering that result home will be the most important moment of Keir Starmer's leadership so far.” - Emma Norris “We've seen already the EU warning quite strongly about changing the Northern Ireland protocol. The UK's been hoping that they may get some sympathy from countries like Poland - but that doesn't look to be happening.” - Jess Sargeant “Hunt has had a fairly good pandemic. He's kept his profile high while getting hard work done. But it's hard to see someone like him coming out the other side of this as leader.” - Tim Durrant “What does ‘Benefits to Bricks' really mean? It sounds like another grand, ill-defined vision that doesn't end up amounting to much.” - Emma Norris “The Tories won't change the rules of the 1922 Committee just because they don't like the by-election results. If they really want rid of them, they'll find a way to oust him.” - Katy Balls Presented by Bronwen Maddox with Jess Sargeant, Emma Norris and Tim Durrant. Audio production by Alex Rees.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson this week narrowly survived a confidence vote within his own party, but more than 40% of Conservative Members of Parliament thought he should go. His premiership has come under pressure after investigations into parties in Downing Street during pandemic lockdowns concluded he broke the rules he introduced. His government was elected in December 2019 with a large mandate to “get Brexit done” and his supporters insist that only he can hold the party together and deliver victory in the next election. But given the large number of Tory MPs who now think he's an electoral liability rather than an asset, will Mr Johnson be able to survive and govern?

Gar nicht mal so einfach, den britischen Premier Boris Johnson loszuwerden. Dem Tory-Politiker sind zwar in den letzten drei Jahren diverse Lügen nachgewiesen worden. Auf seine Rechnung geht auch ein zunächst katastrophales Corona-Management. Noch immer stauen sich die LKW in Calais, auch wenn kaum noch einer darüber berichtet.

Bis dann auch noch berüchtigte Partys in 10 Downing Street ans Tageslicht kamen - minuziös aufgelistet im so genannten Grey Report. Demnach hat Johnson zumindest von exzessiven Feiern gewusst, bei denen viel Alkohol floss, bei denen Reinigungs-Kräfte angepöbelt wurden und Erbrochenes von den Wänden wischen mussten - das alles mitten im Lockdown, während sich Angehörige von Sterbenden auf den Corona-Stationen nicht verbschieden durften.

There are so many big employment and workplace stories at the moment.  From chaos at UK airports due to staff shortages and the raging work from home debate to planned strikes on the rail network and of course the fallout from 'partygate' at 10 Downing St! Added to that this week's narrowly  won vote of no confidence in the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson all adds to a sense of upheaval and uncertainty - hardly a welcome backdrop for any organisation.The political uncertainty is a timely prompt to start looking at what the world of work would be like under a Labour administration.  Justin Madders MP is Labour's Shadow Minister for Employment Rights and Protections.

En medio de las celebraciones del jubileo de platino de la reina Isabel II, que acaba de cumplir 70 años en el trono, Boris Johnson se ha encontrado metido de un modo un tanto inesperado en una moción de confianza en el Parlamento. La moción no la han promovido los laboristas de la oposición, sino su propio partido, el Conservador, en el que tiene muchos más enemigos de los que les gustaría. La facción rebelde de los conservadores se organizó y presentó una carta en la que una porción de los diputados del partido se oponía a que Johnson siguiese siendo primer ministro. Para que siguiese adelante la moción necesitaban que como mínimo un 15% del grupo parlamentario firmase la carta. Esto significaba que había al menos 54 diputados que se oponían directamente y que hacían público su nombre. En la tarde del lunes se procedió a la votación, Johnson se salvó, pero por poco. De los 359 parlamentarios con los que cuenta el Partido Conservador 211 votaron a favor de la continuidad de Johnson y 148 en contra, un margen muy ajustado dentro de sus propias filas que le deja seriamente dañado. Su antecesora, Theresa May, ya pasó por algo parecido en diciembre de 2018. En aquel momento, con las negociaciones del Brexit en punto muerto, May superó una moción de censura interna, pero más de un tercio de los diputados conservadores manifestó su disgusto con ella. No duró mucho. Seis meses más tarde, en julio de 2019, May se vio obligada a dimitir porque se había quedado sin apoyos a su gobierno y ella anunció su renuncia seis meses después. En medio de aquel desconcierto es cuando emergió la figura de Johnson, que había abandonado el gabinete de May un año antes y que se ofreció a los conservadores para liderar el partido, convertirse en primer ministro y dar salida al Brexit de una vez. Johnson está, como vemos, probando la misma medicina que él le dio a Theresa May hace sólo tres años. El origen del malestar conservador es el conocido como ‘partygate’, aquellas fiestas privadas que el primer ministro organizó durante la pandemia en su residencia de Downing Street saltándose a la torera las restricciones impuestas por su propio Gobierno al resto de la población. El escándalo del ‘partygate’ alcanzó su punto álgido durante las pasadas Navidades, luego la invasión de Ucrania lo diluyó, pero muchos conservadores están ya muy hartos de Johnson. La situación económica es mala, la inflación se ha ido al 9% y persisten los problemas de suministros del año pasado. El descontento está en la calle y eso lo saben bien en el partido gobernante. El viernes pasado, en el marco de las celebraciones del Jubileo de la reina Isabel II, Boris Johnson fue recibido con fuertes abucheos al llegar a un servicio de acción de gracias en la Catedral de San Pablo de Londres. La reina fue al mismo tiempo vitoreada por la multitud.

This is Garrison Hardie with your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief for Tuesday, June 7th, 2022. Today, I want to start things off with a question… Did you know that more than 75% of those raised in evangelical, Presbyterian, and Reformed churches don’t pursue any kind of Christian higher education? Surprising isn’t it. Cornerstone Work & Worldview Institute is seeking to provide a new, exciting, and affordable option for Christians. Their mission is to build Kingdom culture in the workplace by equipping their students in a Trinitarian worldview and vocational competencies. Their low-cost full-time program offers integrative course modules, internships, and mentoring so their students can finish debt-free with vocational preparation, a robust faith, and financial potential to build strong godly families and homes rooted in their communities and churches long-term.

Elon Musk's lawyers send letter to Twitter threatening to terminate deal over inflated user data https://thepostmillennial.com/breaking-elon-musks-lawyers-send-letter-to-twitter-threatening-to-terminate-deal-over-inflated-user-data?utm_campaign=64487 Elon Musk has accused Twitter of "resisting and thwarting" his inquiries about how many fake, or bot accounts are currently on the Twitter platform. Musk has been trying to get this information since his acquisition process for the platform began. Musk has reportedly called Twitter's unwillingness to provide the information a "clear material breach" to the terms of the agreement that is still under negotiation. As a result, Musk is reserving his right to not complete the transaction. In the letter to Twitter Chief Legal Officer Vijaya Gadde, Skadden attorney Mike Ringler for Musk said that "Mr. Musk reserves all rights resulting therefrom, including his right not to consummate the transaction and his right to terminate the merger agreement," according to CNBC. He said further that Twitter must provide the information that is being requested, and that the merger agreement requires it. Ringler disputed Twitter's claim that they are not responsible to give that data in order to close the deal. "Mr. Musk is entitled to seek, and Twitter is obligated to provide," Ringler wrote, "information and data for, inter alia, 'any reasonable business purpose related to the consummation of the transaction.'" "At this point," Ringler continued, "Mr. Musk believes Twitter is transparently refusing to comply with its obligations under the merger agreement, which is causing further suspicion that the company is withholding the requested data due to concern for what Mr. Musk's own analysis of that data will uncover." The letter, submitted to the SEC, posited that "If Twitter is confident in its publicized spam estimates, Mr. Musk does not understand the company's reluctance to allow Mr. Musk to independently evaluate those estimates. As noted in our previous correspondence, Mr. Musk will of course comply with the restrictions provided under Section 6.4, including by ensuring that anyone reviewing the data is bound by a non-disclosure agreement, and Mr. Musk will not retain or otherwise use any competitively sensitive information if the transaction is not consummated." Twitter shares were down 5 percent on Monday morning trading. Musk has been adamant throughout the process that he needs to know how many of the accounts on Twitter are actual humans. There is speculation that if the number is higher than Twitter execs have reported, Musk could negotiate a new buying price that's less than the $44 billion initially offered and agreed to. Musk and his team have been willing to do the calculations themselves, but Parag Agrawal, current CEO who took over after founder Jack Dorsey left in the fall, said that for Musk to undertake this count he would need access to information that is not currently public. Boris Johnson survives but is weakened by no-confidence vote https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2022/06/06/boris-johnson-tory-leadership-vote/ British Prime Minister Boris Johnson survived a cliff-hanger vote of no confidence by his fellow Conservative Party lawmakers Monday evening, prevailing despite deep disgust over lockdown-breaking parties at Downing Street and broad discontent with his leadership, which one former ally branded a “charade.” Johnson won the party-only secret balloting by 211 to 148 — surpassing the simple majority of 180 votes he needed to remain in office. Though he held on to his job, the vote was remarkably close for a prime minister who helped the Conservatives win a landslide election in 2019. His salvation may have been the lack of an obvious successor. There remains an active open rebellion from within the party, with many top voices now on-the-record saying this prime minister is unfit to serve. How Johnson proceeds with his domestic and foreign agenda is unclear — and it puts Britain’s western allies in Europe and the United States on notice that Johnson’s authority has been undercut by his own doing. Though Johnson can now fight another day, he is a wounded leader. He and the Conservatives will struggle to rebuild their brand in the face of soaring inflation and diminished public trust. Surviving a no-confidence vote under the current rules insulates Johnson from additional party challenges for a year. But those rules can be changed. Looming over Monday’s vote was the recollection that Johnson’s predecessor, Theresa May, beat a no-confidence challenge over her failed Brexit deal in 2018, only to be forced to resign the next year. When May faced her vote, 37 percent of her lawmakers voted against her; Johnson did worse, with 41 percent of his lawmakers voting against him. Calls for Johnson’s resignation have been simmering for months, fueled by what many saw as weaselly responses to questions about Partygate and by local elections that were a disaster for Conservatives. Almost as soon as Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations ended, Conservatives announced that the threshold of 54 no-confidence letters — equal to 15 percent of the party’s lawmakers in Parliament — had been reached and would trigger a vote.

According to the Washington Post, January 6th Committee Hearing is set to start this month! https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2022/06/06/january-6-committee-hearing-schedule-how-to-watch/ After 11 months and more than 1,000 interviews, the House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol by a pro-Trump mob is ready to share what it knows. It will do that in public hearings, some in prime time, throughout this month. The first will be held this week. Here’s what to know about the hearings. When are the hearings’ dates and times? The first hearing will start Thursday, June 9, at 8 p.m. Eastern. The committee hasn’t announced a formal schedule for the rest, but there could be as many as eight through June, with a final hearing in September — right before the November midterm elections. How to watch the hearings The committee usually live-streams its hearings, and most major TV news stations will be airing at least some of them — though they could go on for hours, and it’s not yet clear whether news networks will stay with the entire hearing each time one is held. The Washington Post will have anchored coverage and analysis beginning Thursday night on www.washingtonpost.com. What to watch for The committee plans to detail their findings of what they say was a months-long Republican conspiracy to overthrow Joe Biden’s legitimate election victory, led by President Donald Trump. The committee could even accuse Trump of committing a crime by intentionally trying to stop Congress’s certification of Biden’s win on Jan. 6, 2021. But Congress’s power is limited; ultimately, the Justice Department would have to decide whether to prosecute. Each hearing will have a theme. On Thursday, lawmakers are planning to introduce the public to what they’ve been up to for the past 11 months since Democrats in Congress voted to set up the investigatory committee. Only two Republicans, Reps. Liz Cheney (Wyo.) and Adam Kinzinger (Ill.) sit on it, and there are no Trump allies on the committee. They will make an opening statement that offers an overview of the Jan. 6 events. Other hearings could focus on what Trump did (or didn’t do) on Jan. 6; how he and his allies tried to dismantle the electoral process in the weeks after Election Day, to keep him in power; how disinformation spreads; and policy recommendations to prevent such an attack from happening again. Another question the committee must grapple with: how to make the public care about the intricate details of an attack that’s more than a year old. In an interview with CBS that aired this weekend, Cheney, the top Republican on the committee, tried to spin things forward, saying that Trump has expressed no remorse for what happened — and that that’s worrisome for the next election. What about the Black Lives Matter riots? What about the antifa riots and attacks? Now for the topic that I love… sports! https://thepostmillennial.com/first-trans-cheerleader-in-nfl-to-make-debut-with-carolina-panthers?utm_campaign=64487 Though I’m not pleased with this news… First 'trans' cheerleader in NFL to make debut with Carolina Panthers The NFL has signed its first biological male who identifies as transgender to be part of the women's cheerleading squad for the Carolina Topcats. Justine Lindsay, 29, announced the news that Lindsay would be joining the women's squad. Lindsay announced the news in March via Instagram with "Cats Out the Bag you are looking at the newest member of the Carolina Panthers TopCats Cheerleader’s as the first Transgender female." Lindsay went on to say "I would like to thank the beautiful and talented dancers who supported me along the way alumni TopCats family and friends for your love and support. I would not have gotten to this moment in my life if it wasn’t for the support. Also to my beautiful coach @chandalaelanouette you are a special being that I truly cherish thank you taking that leap of faith on me to be apart of your legacy and so many others. This is a moment I will never forget and I cannot wait to show you all what this girl has to bring. Thank you @topcats a dream come true." While NFL cheerleading squads had allowed men to join the roster starting in the late 90's, Lindsay will be the first biological male who identifies as female to join. According to Buzzfeed, Topcats' director Chandalae Lanouette said "Lindsay had noted on her application that she was transgender, but her talent, not her history-making, is what landed her on the squad." The Topcats, like most NFL cheerleading squads, are a public facing part of the franchise and are featured at special events, conferences, and fundraisers. "I think more people need to see this," Lindsay told Buzzfeed, "it’s not because I want recognition. It's just to shed light on what’s going on in the world." Sam Ames, the director of advocacy and government affairs for The Trevor Project, responded to Lindsay's hiring by saying "that LGBTQ youth report that seeing LGBTQ representation by celebrities and athletes made them feel good about being LGBTQ." This month the NFL revealed a new LGBTQ+ logo to celebrate pride month and Lindsay's hiring is in keeping with the company's goal to be "more inclusive."

Irreverend: Faith and Current Affairs

Church of England vicars Daniel and Jamie Franklin get together to offer a spiritual perspective on current events, this week taking our Scriptural reflection from 2 Corinthians 11:12-15: the apostle Paul's observation that Satan masquerades as an angel of light and what that can tell us about geopolitical events and the godless humanitarian philosophy that underlies some of them. To that end, we speak about the World Economic Forum gathering in Davos and the technocratic elite's plan for a global government that will hold national governments to account. We discuss the striking parallels between the thought and philosophy of Davos and that of the Soviet communist regime. We also touch briefly on the multiple parties that were happening in Number 10 Downing Street and what they reveal to us about the beliefs of those who implement the lockdown laws. Also in Whitehall, things are looking very woke as the official line is that staff must recognise more than 100 genders and join gender non-conforming book clubs. We receive an email from a lefty listener and exchange some tedious observations about the weather.
