금요일 브리핑: Clamour for action on violence toward women

안녕하세요, Warren Murray with you on the first day of the month and last day of the week.

Police forces should be compelled to deal with violence against women and girls with the same level of resources, expertise and urgency as terrorism or organised crime, the victims commissioner for England and Wales has said. After Sarah Everard’s killer was given a full-life sentence on Thursday, Vera Baird said there should be “no doubt what obligations the police have towards victims”.

The Labour leader, Keir Starmer, has led calls for an inquiry into how Everard’s killer, Wayne Couzens, ㅏ Metropolitan police officer who had been reported for indecent exposure on three occasions, “slipped through the cracks”. The Labour MP Yvette Cooper wants a full independent investigation into violence against women and girls within the police service. The home secretary, 프리티 파텔, said there were “serious questions that need to be answered by the Metropolitan police” while giving her backing to the Met commissioner, Cressida Dick.

An examination by the police and emergency services inspectorate has found “problems, unevenness and inconsistencies” in dealing with the “epidemic” of violence against female victims in the UK. According to the Counting Dead Women project, run by Karen Ingala Smith, 80 women were killed between the deaths of Sarah Everard in March and Sabina Nessa on 17 구월. The minister for safeguarding, Rachel Maclean, said the violence against women and girls strategy published this summer set out “the government’s ambition to increase support for survivors, bring perpetrators to justice, 과, ultimately, reduce the prevalence of violence against women and girls”.

Biden’s big agenda under threat – With only hours to spare, the US Congress overnight has passed legislation to avert a government shutdown, with Joe Biden signing off on funding the federal government until 3 December. But there has been a stinging defeat for Democrats as the House leader, 낸시 펠로시, was forced to postpone the vote on the president’s flagship public infrastructure package. That and Biden’s expansion of the social safety net remain stalled by divisions between Democratic centrists and progressives, along with Republican eagerness to deny Biden a win. Compromise is the only way forward for Democrats, who need every vote in the Senate and nearly every vote in the House. Pelosi will try again on Friday.

Business rates battle – Conservative MPs in “red wall” seats have urged the chancellor to cut business rates, days after Labour announced it would abolish the tax in an overhaul. With the Tory conference about to begin, new data has revealed that around one in six households in parliamentary “red wall” areas can expect to see fuel poverty worsen as a result of next week’s energy cap rise. The conference also takes place this weekend of the party formerly known as Brexit. The Reform leader, Richard Tice, has said it will focus less on culture war issues and more on attracting Conservative voters away from the “party of high taxes and high regulation”.

‘Gaping chasm’ in health workforce – The NHS and social care services in England will need 이상 1.1 million extra staff over the next decade to keep up with growing demand, research from the Health Foundation thinktank suggests. It would require the government to put up to £86.4bn more into the services – going much further than the coming 1.25 percentage point rise in national insurance – with the extra personnel needed because of the ageing population, more cases of long-term illness and the backlog caused by the Covid pandemic. Saffron Cordery, the deputy chief executive of NHS Providers, said the “gaping chasm” between service demand and workforce supply “must be addressed as a matter of urgency”. The Guardian approached the Department of Health and Social Care for a response.

‘Criminalise conversion’ – Human rights lawyers and experts have called for swift action to outlaw so-called conversion therapy. The Forum, chaired by Helena Kennedy QC, says all practices, including prayer, that seek to suppress, “cure” or change sexual orientation or gender identity must be criminalised. There should be no defence that a victim appears to have consented. In the Queen’s speech in May, Boris Johnson’s government said it would legislate to ban “coercive and abhorrent” conversion practices, but pledged to uphold freedom of speech and religious freedom. Almost two-thirds of British adults believe conversion practices should be banned, a YouGov survey found.

Eye above us – Nasa has launched the latest mission in a 50-year unbroken line of satellites that monitor the Earth’s surface. Landsat 9 continues a joint project between Nasa and the US Geological Survey. It continuously collects images of the Earth’s surface to monitor agricultural productivity, forest health, water quality, coral reefs and glaciers.

The first Landsat was launched in 1972. The decades-long history of images helps scientists understand changes in land use and natural changes brought about by climate change. In conjunction with Landsat 8, which is still in orbit, Landsat 9 will be able to image the entire surface of the Earth every eight days.

The prime minister was hoping to use his party’s major gathering to seize the agenda and set out his plans for the rest of the parliamentary term. 대신, he may be forced to deal with evolving supply chain and fuel crises – and bat off claims that Brexit is to blame. The Guardian’s political editor, Heather Stewart, explains the task he has ahead of him.

With his final turn in No Time to Die filling cinemas, the actor Daniel Craig takes questions from readers and fellow actors about the role – from being smacked around his nether regions to getting over his fear of heights.

그만큼 new transgender inclusion guidelines for sport in Britain have been broadly welcomed by a number of sports and women’s organisations, including Women in Sport. 하나, they have also faced criticism from LGBT+ groups, such as Pride Sports and Stonewall. Brazilian football great Pelé has been discharged from the hospital where he received treatment for almost a month. A damning investigation into boxing at the Rio 2016 Olympics has found widespread evidence of “corruption, bribery and the manipulation of sporting results” – with judges giving each other signals at ringside to fix bouts.

Ten things to look out for in the Premier League this weekend as Manchester City head for Anfield, how best for Manchester United to utilise Paul Pogba and time for Leeds to step up a gear. Four years ago to the day, Catalans Dragons were fighting for their very existence in Super League, one defeat away from relegation to the Championship.

The British cyclist Joss Lowden has broken the UCI hour record by covering a distance of 48.405km at the Grenchen velodrome in Switzerland.

Business confidence in the UK has collapsed after a month that has seen supply bottlenecks, rising energy prices, fuel shortages and looming tax increases combine to stifle growth. In its latest health check on the economy, the Institute of Directors said sentiment had “fallen off a cliff” in September, adding to fears that Britain was on course for a dose of 1970s-style stagflation. The grim outlook has brought calls for the government to do more to get the economy moving. Stock markets are starting to look jittery in the face of these issues and the FTSE100 is set to lose 1% at the open this morning. It’s also bad news for sterling, which is down at $1.345 and €1.162.
