A heavily pregnant young woman is being evicted just before Christmas by her landlord – who is a vicar:
The woman, 19-year old Lily Simmons, was given an eviction notice by her private landlord the Rev Ian Livingstone after she complained about mould and damp at her home.

If you want talks not violence, if you seek consensus not victory, if you refuse to fetishise force – then you’re guilty of disrespecting the armed services. Welcome to British values in the 21st century, a century born in war and continuing in war, a country where the peacemakers are condemned as extremists and attack is defined as defence. Welcome to British values, where you support the armed forces by sending them to die in foreign lands where they have no business being.
