Children will need court order before they can legally take puberty blockers, NHS confirms

Children suffering with gender dysphoria will now need a court order before they are legally allowed to take puberty blockers, the NHS has confirmed. The new guidelines were announced following a landmark High Court ruling on Tuesday in which judges said trans children should not receive the controversial drugs unless they understand the "long-term risks and consequences" of them, amid warnings it is "highly unlikely" that most teenagers could consent to this process.On Tuesday night, the NHS updated its guidance to reflect the judgment, meaning "no-one under the age of 16 can now be...

The insidious march of critical race theory in schools may be breaking the law

The insidious march of critical race theory in schools may be breaking the law

With many young people now returning to school, the education sector is in panic mode as it considers how to address the horrifying death of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement's subsequent explosion on to the political scene. As a school leader, I have been contacted by a number of head teachers who are increasingly under pressure from both teachers and parents to be seen to be doing something. Unfortunately, many have resorted to implementing rushed measures.While it is crucial for schools to address current events, it’s certainly not helpful to be shoehorning a topic as...

Renewables overtake fossil fuels for first time in Europe

Renewables overtake fossil fuels for first time in Europe

Renewable energy overtook fossil fuels for the first six months of 2020 across the European Union for the first time, as lockdown slowed demand. Wind, solar, hydro and bioenergy generated 40 per cent of member states’ electricity, compared to 34 per cent from fossil fuels, according to data from environmental think tank Ember.The UK passed the same milestone in April, and in June went a record-breaking two months without coal power. The steep decline in fossil fuel use across Europe was helped by a 7 per cent drop in electricity demand because of the lockdown, as business and leisure...

Public sector workers whingeing about a pay freeze may change their tune when reality kicks in 

Public sector workers whingeing about a pay freeze may change their tune when reality kicks in 

Why do so many people think the suppression of the economy is no big deal?  On October 29, two days before the Prime Minister announced our second national lockdown, one opinion poll found two thirds of people in favour of the idea and only a quarter against.    There are, I think, two answers to the above the question. Firstly, large numbers of people, who do not have a thorough scientific education, are susceptible to any doom-laden modelling  that is put before them, however dodgy it may be. They are frightened, and allow Covid 19 to over-rule all other concerns.    Secondly, we haven’t...

She wasn't everyone's favourite First Lady, but here's what we'll miss about Melania Trump

But you know, we’re (probably) not going to be seeing as much of her now and inevitably there will be things about her that we’ll miss. If you’re not convinced, then here are a few reminders:Even in an emergency flood zone, Melania was welded to her very high, very narrow . In a world where the unwalkable heel has become an endangered species, we can’t help but admire her stalking pluck. And she does wear them like a pro.Razor sharp, ice cold, eerily uplit, always reminiscent of an early Doctor...
