School absence fine - court case lost. I appreciate the arguments but am against state over-reach.
Shame about the ruling but can't stand that guy and pleased i won't see him on tv anymore!
We need better rounded and compassionate individuals not just educated - esp in these days when teachers are so restricted in how they can show affection for children.
Where we all come from... I find this very poignant. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xDc...E#t=204.014988

That's not education. We have the web. We have resources for children to explore any learning you could wish for. If you teach children the basics for language and mathematics and then the basics for humanity they will be fine.
Teach them about compassion, co-operation, love, problem solving, happiness, learning, team work, challenges or puzzles to work out they will develop into massively productive and happy people.
Unfortunately that isn't what corporations want. They want people to compete, forced to obey and conform to have the life sucked out of them so when they go into the work force they accept whatever conditions to corporations provide and so they never challenge the bad practices or immoral activities of the corporations.
The submission to authority is to create obedience to the state. History? Man if Ron thinks what is taught in schools about history is accurate he's too far gone. Let me assure people whatever you read about history is at best a guess, likely wrong and almost certainly a lie.
Its funny, I was lamenting that the anti establishment/change candidates just happened to be traditional 'right' and it would have been good to have had a lefty to also offer an option to the electorate - and why bernie should have been nominee rather than hilary.
Well Mélenchon s shooting up the polls in france - and i find myself eating my words. Not sure he will be better than le pen even ( and i thought anyone would be better than le pen)
Turkey has voted to provide Erdogan with more powers by 2.74%. However, his opposition seems to be contesting the result and argue unstamped ballot papers should not be counted unless thoroughly investigated.
Yes it is true that he claims that he is realigning the Turkish constitution to an American or French system and proposed a maximum of two five-year terms. However, that may change and he insists on being called dear leader or becomes El Presidents for life.
I just hope another president isn't watching. Especially as another power will be to interfere in the judiciary - so a complete break from the last year. Along with academics and journalists.
Expect to see some flack for Pope Francis:

I don't understand why do you think her antiglobalistation policy would be good for the UK anyway, are you suggesting that for the UK it would be better not to sign any trade deal?
Marine Le Pen has decided to resign her position as the leader of FN and compete as as an independent candidate.
Whilst it may be her only play it is a smart move. As she has tried to decontaminate the fn image to little success. So stepping away from the party may enable her to seem more mainstream to some voters. She is retaining the same policies and nothing may stop her rejoining FN.
However she must be conscious of the Chirac win where her father barely changed the percentage who voted for him with the rest of the population uniting behind Chirac.
