British people are now applying for jobs in Poland

    The Polish government have claimed that they will attract as many as 30,000 British jobs to its business-service sector this year. Following the outflow of more than a million Poles to Britain and other Western European countries, the government is trying to reclaim workforce with a multi-year 1 trillion zloty (£197 million) plan to boost innovation in its economy. Prime minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Monday that the country had spoken with more than 30 companies, some in the financial sector, about moving parts of their workforce from the UK following Brexit: Poles were moving to London, now companies from London are relocating their workplaces to Poland. The average salary in Poland's financial and accounting industry is around £20,500, according to the 2015 Antal S...

The Trump proclamation that everybody missed

    Buried under a stack of presidential paperwork President Trump signed shortly after his inauguration was his first official proclamation, declaring last Friday a National Day of Patriotic Devotion. But by the time anyone found out about it, it was already over. Trump proclaimed the day to honor his own inauguration, proclaiming a new national pride that would strengthen our bonds to each other and to our country. But the White House never released the proclamation until it arrived Monday at the Office of the Federal Register, where it was scheduled to be published Tuesday. The proclamation continues a tradition that began with President George H.W. Bush in 1989 and followed by every president since. The one-page proclamations read like mini-inaugural addresses, and can set...

Trump to Order Mexican Border Wall and Curtail Immigration

    President Trump on Wednesday will order the construction of a Mexican border wall the first in a series of actions this week to crack down on immigrants, including slashing the number of refugees who can resettle in the United States and blocking Syrians and others from terror-prone nations from entering, at least temporarily. During an appearance at the Department of Homeland Security on Wednesday, Mr. Trump plans to sign an executive order to direct federal funds to be shifted toward the building of a wall on the southern border, a signature promise of his campaign. He has argued that doing so is vital to gaining control over the illegal flow of immigrants into the United States. Big day planned on NATIONAL SECURITY tomorrow, Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter on Tuesday night. ...

Could Ralph Lauren Be Facing A Boycott After Dressing Melania Trump

    Melania Trump wore a blue Ralph Lauren dress for the inauguration, and some people aren't pleased with the designer. We immediately started to get complaints about Melania Trump wearing [the label], an anonymous Ralph Lauren source told Glamour. Refinery29 Trump didn't simply buy one of Ralph Lauren's dresses.

Row breaks out after four years old told not to wear hijab to Catholic school

    A Roman Catholic School has found itself at the centre of a social media storm after telling parents of a four-year-old Muslim girl she should not wear the hijab to school. St Clare’s School in Robert Road, Handsworth, has a strict uniform policy, including no headwear or scarf and asked parents of the girl to respect it. The row has now divided senior councillors and women’s rights activists who have been locked in a row over Facebook and Twitter. But her father called on Birmingham City Council’s Labour cabinet member for equalities Waseem Zaffar to intervene causing the row to erupt. Coun Zaffar (Lozells and East Handsworth) wrote that he had met with the head teacher and told her the ban on the scarf was against the equalities act. He added: I’m insisting this matter i...
