New report reveals a shocking fact about the UK’s role in the climate crisis

According to the report, the UK is the world’s second biggest generator of plastic waste per capita. The country only trailed behind the US for the amount of plastic waste generated per person and came first among EU countries.

Jeremy Corbyn’s suspension is a massive distraction from what’s actually in the EHRC report

Jeremy Corbyn’s suspension from the Labour Party was rightly greeted with shock and an outpouring of solidarity.

New report confirms HMRC doesn’t know the true cost of furlough fraud

Originally HMRC predicted that the cost of fraud and error to the CJRS would be between 1% to 2%. However, according to HMRC’s planning assumption, the total cost could range from 5% to 10%. In real terms, that’s between £2.0bn to £3.9bn.  While the NAO report explains that HMRC’s initial estimates were based on assumption rather than evidence, it is a concern that this large figure has been estimated on a number based on out-of-date samples. HMRC’s predictions were made based on payments made up to mid-September, meaning that the current cost is unknown. A third of employees were asked to work while furloughed  NAO has confirmed that HMRC’s…
