Liz Truss Can Win Tory Lead By Beating Guards And Helping North

EVERYTHING is getting a little heated in the Tory leadership debate, isn’t it?

The contenders were very snappy with each other, weren’t they?

Whisper it very softly, but I’m not convinced they’re best friends.

In summary, the views that the candidates have of each other are roughly as follows.

Liz Truss: “Rishi, you are a pocket-sized Little Lord Fauntleroy with a privileged upbringing and far too much gold for your own good.

“You’re a bummer at business and about as charismatic as an assistant bank manager from Rotherham. No offense, obviously.”

Rishi Sunak: Liz, you’re a screaming, deluded weirdo who should be in a safe house.

“Best held with clamps.

“You’re also a Remainer with a weird squeaky voice that weirdly thinks she’s Margaret Thatcher reincarnated. No offense, of course.”

It’s all great fun if you enjoy watching adults spit feathers on each other (I do, as luck would have it).

What has become quite clear is that Rishi has little chance of winning over the party members.

First, they prefer their candidates to come from the right. And Rishi is the slap bang center.

They also like it when their candidates offer something new. And Rishi is about the sequel.

And finally, quite a large chunk accuses Rishi of getting her lover Boris Johnson dirty.

Yes, Bojo is still lurking behind the curtain.

A petition for his reinstatement has garnered 10,000 signatures from activists.

If you thought the party was in crisis now, see what happens when Boris attempts a comeback.

Sir Keir Starmer is laughing his head off.

The problem for the Tories is that while Liz is more popular with activists, Rishi is more popular with voters.

That means if Truss wins, which she certainly will, she’ll have a lot of work to do to win over the public.

But there are at least two or three ways she can do just that.


First, put Whacking the Woke at the top of your agenda.

This is a surefire election winner. Get rid of Stonewall from any public facility.

Make sure schools – and I would put Kemi Badenoch in charge of education – stop filling our kids’ heads with ridiculous trans propaganda.

Stop the cops from getting on one knee and driving around in rainbow colored squad cars.

protect freedom of speech. No more identitarian politics.

Emphasize the things we all have in common, not the cosmetic differences between us.

And make sure the north of the country gets the investment promised by Boris Johnson.

If you want to win those Red Wall seats, bring some well paying jobs to Newcastle, Teesside, Leeds, Stoke and so on.

That means level up. Give the northern cities a reasonable transportation infrastructure. Create training positions for young people.

Those are the two areas where it can really make a difference. Roll back the advancing tide. And make our country a more equal nation.

If she succeeds, then maybe one day we will have – for the first time ever – a prime minister named after a surgical device.

But boy, did she cut out her work.


RISHI SUNAK has been accused of “mansplaining” his leadership rival Liz Truss.

What does that word mean?

The best definition I can find is “Mansplaining (v): the act of telling women something they need to know, bless them.”

This is from the Rod Liddle Dictionary of Modern Bs.


Looks like we’re headed for a drought.

We haven’t had much rainfall in the last few months. And the reservoirs are drying up.

The thing is, though, this country should NEVER be threatened by a drought.

We are one of the wettest countries in the world. With an abundance of lakes and rivers.

So why this crisis?

Because our private water suppliers refuse to invest in the infrastructure.

And our water pipes are crumbling.

Did you know that more than THREE BILLION LITERS, a fifth of the volume of water consumed, are lost through leaks every day?

That’s a shocking statistic.

That’s just one reason why we should nationalize the water companies.

Our country’s water should belong to all of us.


EDDIE DEMPSEY, the demented RMT vice president, lives in council housing.

This is despite the fact that his union pays him almost £100,000 a year if you include his pension contributions.

In other words, Dempsey is taking advantage of subsidized housing.

In 2015 he visited Ukraine’s Donbass region, where he was photographed with a commander of the “ghost brigade” of pro-Russian separatists branded a “terrorist organization” by the Supreme Court of Ukraine.

If you have a lot less money, you will be happy about your 2-room apartment at a third of the market price.

All of this tends to support what we already knew. Like his union, Dempsey is a selfish hypocrite.


It is well known that neither candidate for the Conservative Party leadership wants Priti Patel in their cabinet.

Priti is Minister of the Interior. She is an enormously talented politician.

Some people don’t like her because she speaks her mind.

And get things done.

If I were running for leader, she would be the first name on my list for a post.

‘breast feeding’

DOCTORS was recommended by the Royal College of Obestricians and Gynecologists to use the term ‘breast feeding’.

So that they don’t upset trans men who are about to give birth.

That’s the deal.

The milk comes from what we call breasts.

You can’t give a baby milk from a “chest”.

And when a trans man has a baby, that’s already proof that he’s actually a she and has been all along.

When will this madness stop?


BRILLIANT performance by England’s Lionesses to beat Sweden and reach the Euro 2022 final.

And Beth Mead’s first goal was a smash.

Congratulations To The Brilliant England Coach Sarina Wiegman

The best part is that schools can finally be persuaded to let girls play soccer in sports. Instead of netball and hockey.

It is not for nothing that football is the most popular team sport in the world.

It’s easy to play and incredibly fun.

Even as a child I found it unfair that we were allowed to enjoy the glories of football when the girls were bored to death on the tarmac playing netball.

And congratulations to the brilliant England coach Sarina Wiegman.

The Dutchwoman has shaped England into a first-class team.

The Lionesses have already beaten two teams ranked above them – Spain and Sweden.

Those are the results old horseface Gareth Southgate of the men’s team can’t seem to match.

If Sarina wins the Euros, give her a month or two off.

And then put her in charge of the men’s team in Qatar for the World Cup.

And let Gareth run a car park in Northampton or something.

From High-Spec Cameras To Verification, How Delhi Police Provide Security

By August 11, 2022, 1:18 p.m. IST (Released)


Delhi police are said to have taken “irreproachable and infallible” security measures for Independence Day. Here’s what police say they plan to provide security on August 15.

Strict security measures were taken in Delhi ahead of Independence Day celebrations. From heavy police deployment to the use of high-spec cameras, Delhi police have pulled up their socks to mitigate any threat on August 15 – when the country celebrates its 75th Independence Day.

Delhi police are said to have taken “irreproachable and infallible” security measures for Independence Day. Here’s what the police say they plan to do:
  • More than 10,000 police are said to be deployed around Red Fort and the roads leading to the site. The security wing and national security guards of the Delhi Police, along with 70-75 forces comprising 5,000 paramilitaries and police, will be deployed near the Red Fort in north Delhi.
  • Particular emphasis will be placed on the containment of sub-conventional aerial objects and real-time coordination with intelligence services and central agencies is maintained alongside interstate coordination.
  • Police officials said they are also carrying out a mass check for the presence of IEDs (improvised explosive devices), if any.
  • Staff are briefed on proper security, training and deployment.
  • The police have stepped up patrols and carried out anti-sabotage checks.
  • Hotels, bed and breakfasts, car parks and restaurants are checked, and a verification campaign of tenants and servants is underway.
  • Approximately 1,000 high specification cameras will be used to contain the aerial objects. These cameras, which will be installed by the Northern, Central and New Delhi Municipal Police units, will also help monitor the VVIP road leading to the Red Fort.
  • These Internet Protocol (IP) based cameras will be equipped with features such as face detection, people motion detection, trip wire, audio detection, intrusion, defocus and abandoned/missing objects. They will provide a Full HD 1080P live view of the locations. It will also share real-time data for the facial recognition server.
  • According to a report seen by ANI, out of the total requirements, 80% of 2-megapixel IP-based CCTV cameras and 20% of 4-megapixel IP-based CCTV cameras will be installed at each corner of the site. The police have been carrying out our verification campaigns over the past few months They also appealed “to the public that any suggestions and instructions coming from the police, whether regarding the verification of tenants, servants, verification of the hotel, any place that leads to any type of sabotage, either alert and inform the police about it,” police said.
  • On July 22, police issued an order prohibiting the flight of aerial objects such as paragliders, hand gliders and hot air balloons before Independence Day. The order will remain in effect in the nation’s capital until August 16.
  • People are urged “to follow the advisory issued to ensure that kites, balloons or any type of flying objects are not seen around the monument on August 15”. This step was taken keeping in mind the incident in 2017 when, during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Independence Day speech, a kite landed just below the podium. The prime minister, however, continued his speech unimpressed, an official quoted by PTI said.
  • Facial Recognition Software (FRS) will be used on ‘vagrants’ or ‘persons with suspicious movements’ in several areas of the Northern Police District to monitor criminal activity and maintain a database on it, the report said. Hindustan Times.
  • The police are in contact with various agencies and act on all entries that come to them. They said an institutionalized mechanism was in place to keep an eye on the Rohingyas and the special branch was already working on it.

    Trump pleaded fifth more than 400 times during his New York deposition, answering only a question about his name, according to an NBC News report.

    Trump Pleaded Fifth More Than 400 Times During His New York Deposition, Answering Only A Question About His Name, According To An Nbc News Report.

    • A source told NBC News that Trump pleaded the Fifth more than 440 times during his Wednesday deposition.

    • Trump’s attorney, Ron Fischetti, said Trump only answered one question about his name.

    • In 2018, Trump spoke out against pleading the Fifth, saying only “the mob” had done that.

    Former President Donald Trump, during his deposition in New York on Wednesday, ended up pleading the Fifth more than 440 times, according to NBC News.

    That was according to a source with knowledge of the deposition, who told NBC News how Trump had invoked his Fifth Amendment rights hundreds of times.

    Additionally, Trump’s attorney, Ron Fischetti, told NBC News that the only question Trump answered was when he was asked what his name was.

    A spokesperson for the New York Attorney General’s office confirmed to NBC News that Trump had invoked the Fifth, but did not say how many times he had done so.

    Trump declined to answer questions during a deposition Wednesday at the office of New York Attorney General Tish James. James is investigating whether Trump’s company, the Trump Organization, violated banking, insurance and tax laws and whether it engaged in financial fraud.

    The New York Times also spoke to Fischetti, who said the deposition, which lasted about four hours with breaks in between, involved Trump repeating “the same answer” over and over and reiterating his plea for the fifth amendment.

    “They asked a lot of questions about ratings and golf clubs and stuff,” Fischetti told The Times.

    Fischetti also told The Times that Trump should be dissuaded from answering questions from the New York attorney general’s office.

    “He absolutely wanted to testify, and it took very strong persuasion from me and others to convince him,” Fischetti said.

    Trump issued a lengthy statement slamming James on Wednesday.

    “I once asked, ‘If you’re innocent, why are you accepting the Fifth Amendment? ‘” he said in the statement.

    “Now I know the answer to that question,” he continued in the statement. “When your family, your business and everyone in your orbit have become the targets of an unfounded and politically motivated witch hunt supported by lawyers, prosecutors and the bogus news media, you have no choice. .”

    After the deposition, Trump posted a message on Truth Social, stating that he was leaving the attorney general’s office.

    “A very professional meeting. Having a fantastic company with great assets, very little debt and lots of CASH. Only in America!” Trump wrote.

    Trump has said in the past that only members of “the mob” would take the Fifth.

    “You see the mob taking the Fifth,” he said in April 2018. “If you’re innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?”

    Fischetti did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Insider.

    FBI raid of Trump home exposes long-running dispute

    Fbi Raid Of Trump Home Exposes Long-Running Dispute

    Monday’s FBI search of former President Donald J. Trump’s Florida home, a police action with explosive legal and political implications, was the culmination of a long-running dispute between a president proud of his contempt for rules and officials responsible for protecting the archives and secrets of the nation.

    On one side were officials from the National Archives, which is responsible for ensuring that all presidential records are kept in accordance with the law, and the Justice Department, which some people familiar with the investigation say s There were concerns about the whereabouts of any classified information and whether Mr. Trump’s team was fully open.

    On the other, Mr. Trump, who, in apparent violation of the Presidential Records Act, had taken a trove of documents with him to his home in Mar-a-Lago when he left the White House, containing documents sensitive – and then, in the opinion of the Department of Justice, had not fully complied with requests for the return of the disputed material.

    After the investigation took place largely out of public view for months, news that officers had arrived at the gates of Mar-a-Lago early Monday morning with a search warrant raised new questions about Mr. Trump’s vulnerability to prosecution and fueled further partisan divisions.

    Trump aides and allies stepped up their criticism of the search on Tuesday, calling it unnecessary and saying, without citing any evidence, that it was a brazen use of prosecutorial power for political gain. On his social media site on Tuesday, Trump described the raid as part of a “coordinated attack” that also includes local and state prosecutors, alluding to ongoing investigations into him in Georgia and New York.

    Christina Bobb, an attorney and aide to Mr. Trump, who said she received a copy of the search warrant, told an interviewer that officers were looking for “presidential records or any possibly classified documents.”

    At the White House, President Biden’s press secretary said he was not informed in advance of the decision to carry out the search, and at the Justice Department, Attorney General Merrick B. Garland has maintained public silence on this momentous step.

    Despite Mr. Trump’s suggestions that an army of agents attacked Mar-a-Lago and stormed his home, the FBI carried out the search on a day when Mr. Trump was out of town and the club was firm. Officers carried out the search relatively discreetly, people familiar with the matter said; by some accounts, they were not seen donning the conspicuous navy jackets with the agency’s initials emblazoned on the back that are commonly worn when executing search warrants.

    Another person familiar with the search said officers began going through a storage unit, where items such as lounge chairs and umbrellas are kept, in the basement. They went to his office, which was built for him on the second floor of the main house, where they cracked a hotel-style safe which two people briefed on the search said contained nothing of importance to him. the agents.

    Then they moved to Mr. Trump’s residence, the person said.

    In the end, they removed a number of boxes of documents, people familiar with the search said.

    It’s unclear what the officers were looking for or what they took. It is also not clear whether the search was carried out simply to ensure that documents and other items were properly returned to the archives or if it was a possible precursor to a prosecution of Mr. Trump for mishandling classified documents or obstructing efforts to retrieve them. .

    Throughout his presidency, Mr. Trump has disregarded records retention laws and was known to tear up documents and, in some cases, flush them down the toilet. It is not clear whether he sought to preserve the material sought by the archives and the Department of Justice to keep it away from public scrutiny or for some other reason.

    A close look at the investigation, however, shows how it has quietly accelerated for much of this year, introducing a new element into questions about Mr. Trump’s varied and escalating legal troubles and his political viability even then. that he is hinting at another running for president.

    For many months before he left office, Mr Trump was telling his aides to bring him documents to the residence while he was in the Oval Office, and they complied, but there was no process in place, meaning officials whose job it was to keep track of the paperwork didn’t always know exactly what happened there, according to people familiar with the events.

    At the end of his presidency, and as Mr. Trump fought to undo his election defeat, some of his aides were keen to preserve the work of the office itself. His habit of carrying equipment in cardboard boxes, with a personal helper or valet carrying them, was well known, but the contents were not always clear.

    Discussions have taken place within the White House by top staffers about how to get Mr. Trump to return his boxes, people familiar with the events said; it is unclear whether Mr. Trump has ever been questioned directly or whether officials simply did not ask him.

    When he left the White House, Mr Trump took the boxes with him to Mar-a-Lago, filled with papers including letters from North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and the “Sharpie-gate” map of the former president. a hurricane, as well as personal items like golf balls and a raincoat and various other lined things.

    What we consider before using anonymous sources.
    How do the sources know the information? What is their motivation for telling us? Have they proven themselves in the past? Can we corroborate the information? Even with those questions answered, the Times uses anonymous sources as a last resort. The journalist and at least one editor know the identity of the source.

    The National Archives, whose mission is to preserve government records, determined last year that many important presidential documents that archivists knew existed were missing and in Mr. Trump’s possession.

    It sparked lengthy back-and-forths between the National Archives and Mr. Trump’s attorneys over what documents he might have taken. Mr. Trump’s reluctance to turn over the documents quickly frustrated archive officials, who had become deeply skeptical throughout the Trump administration that he and his aides were following federal record-keeping laws.

    For the rest of 2021, Mr. Trump has resisted demands for the return of the equipment. In the meantime, Mr Trump was waving things like the North Korean leader’s letters to people as if they were collectibles he was showing off.

    In January this year, the National Archives arranged to recover 15 boxes of government documents, gifts and other property from Mar-a-Lago.

    When archivists searched the boxes, they found several documents containing sensitive national security information, some marked classified.

    Archivists also found that Mr Trump had failed to return several documents they believed the former president had in his possession. At that time, the National Archives alerted the Department of Justice that it was concerned about the handling of classified documents, which are closely monitored by the government and are supposed to remain in secure channels.

    In the spring, the Justice Department took a series of actions that showed it was investigating what happened to the classified documents, as prosecutors issued a subpoena to the National Archives to obtain the boxes and convened a grand jury, whose term was later extended beyond its original expiration date.

    Investigators began contacting possible witnesses, including Molly Michael, an aide to Mr. Trump, saying they were seeking information from people close to the former president. A lawyer for Ms Michael declined to comment.

    In the spring, a group of federal investigators, including the Justice Department’s top counterintelligence official, Jay Bratt, traveled to Mar-a-Lago. Mr. Trump met with them briefly and Mr. Trump’s lawyers were present.

    In an interview with the right-wing Real America’s Voice on Tuesday, Bobb said she and other Trump lawyers had been “extremely cooperative” with the FBI during a previous visit when agents had “a free access” to the building.

    After Mr. Bratt and other officials traveled to Mar-a-Lago, they subpoenaed the Trump Organization to obtain a copy of Mar-a-Lago’s surveillance tapes, a person with knowledge said of the case. The company complied, turning over the tapes to the government.

    Mr. Trump’s attorneys also sifted through his records at Mar-a-Lago to determine whether he still retained any classified or sensitive information. During this process, Mr. Trump’s team made statements to the Department of Justice about what Mr. Trump had delivered.

    But in recent weeks, officials have questioned whether that information is entirely accurate — and whether Mr. Trump continues to store sensitive documents at Mar-a-Lago, one of the people said. It’s unclear whether the department conveyed that concern to Mr. Trump’s team.

    Mr Trump and his aides made it clear they were taken by surprise when officers showed up at Mar-a-Lago with a search warrant on Monday.

    A person familiar with the matter said the warrant was approved by federal magistrate Bruce Reinhart, a former federal prosecutor and defense attorney. Magistrates are chosen by district court judges, which means they are not politically appointed. It is common for magistrates to consider search warrant applications.

    The warrant was obtained by prosecutors from the Justice Department’s National Security Division, which, at the request of the National Archives, conducted the investigation into whether the documents were improperly removed and stored, according to two people aware of the situation.

    The FBI left behind a detailed manifesto of all the materials that were removed, according to a person familiar with the investigation.

    The CEO who developed Tesla’s electric scooters shares innovation tips

    Avatar Of Rajesh Khanna



    The Ceo Who Developed Tesla'S Electric Scooters Shares Innovation Tips

    Horace Luke is not a fan of the word “no”.

    “If I ask the first time [whether] I can do something and it’s a “no”, I’ll find another guy to ask. If the second guy says no, then I’ll do it,” the entrepreneur said.

    “I’m just going to do it myself because I really believe in the idea.”

    His ‘don’t ask third time’ philosophy took the 52-year-old far – he is the founder of Gogoro, a Taiwanese manufacturer of electric scooters and a battery exchange network.

    Launched in 2011, the startup claims to have since built a network of more than 2,300 swap-and-go battery stations, powering 350,000 daily battery swaps for two-wheelers.

    “By the end of this year, we will have more locations than gas stations in Taiwan,” Luke told CNBC Make It.

    Its investors include Al Gore’s Generation Investment Management, Foxconn – one of Apple’s biggest suppliers – and Indonesian app GoTo.

    Despite its success, Luke’s approach to urban mobility and sustainability has not always been well received.

    “Not only was nobody working on such a topic, at the same time nobody believed in us…when we launched our flagship store, people came [and] asked, ‘Who will possess [this] battery when you go bankrupt?’”

    The CEO added with a laugh, “That’s a really rude question to ask. But I think the user-friendliness and convenience of battery swapping has really won consumers’ hearts.”

    I see innovation as an upward spiral and my daily job is to maintain this spiral.

    Horace Luke

    Gogoro Founder

    Luke is no stranger to innovation – he worked at Microsoft, where he led product ideation and brand development for its major products, including the original Xbox and Windows XP.

    Before founding Gogoro, he was also Chief Innovation Officer at smartphone maker HTC.

    With over 15 years of experience under his belt, Luke has a number of tips for developing new products. CNBC Make It finds out what they are.

    1. Listen to others

    When it comes to innovation, it’s never your job and yours alone, Luke said.

    “If you come into my office, you will find that my office is really noisy. Lots of people coming in and out…chatting and talking about things.”

    The most important part of creating new products is actually using “your ears,” he added.

    “It’s the ability to hear 1,000 ideas and choose them [that work]combine them and then bring people together to now culturally work in the same direction.”

    You need to provide something that makes people smile [faces] when they use it, they will adopt it.

    Horace Luke

    Gogoro Founder

    However, having good ideas isn’t enough – it’s the ability to execute on them that’s “really important”.

    “The guy who says a car can fly, but he never flew the car – he’s just crazy. But the guy who flew the car, he’s a genius,” added Luke .

    That’s why, beyond listening to his team’s ideas, he sees himself playing a huge role in rallying them to work towards the same goal of creating new products.

    “I see innovation as an upward spiral and my daily job is to maintain this spiral.”

    2. Think outside the box

    One thing Luke would never do? Work on projects where “someone is able to say, ‘You mean, like this?’”

    “Instantly this project is killed because I don’t want there to be an example out there. You have to come up with your own idea… think outside the box,” he added.

    It was, he said, the approach that led to the creation of the original Xbox.

    “That’s why the Xbox was born – it was a box that provided computing technology that was beyond what a game console could do,” said Luke.

    “Instead of a device that plays games, what about a PC that entertains?”

    3. Find the right product

    Convincing consumers to go electric is a challenge. But Gogoro’s mission to provide a seamless vehicle charging experience paid off.

    Its battery swap system allows drivers to swap batteries in seconds, unlike charging stations, which can take hours to charge electric vehicles.

    “You need to provide something more convenient, with a better user experience so people can turn around. It’s not about price,” Luke said.

    “No matter how cheap something is… nobody wants to use it. You need to provide something that makes people smile. [faces] when they use it, they will adopt it.”
