Pop Singer From Romania Living In Lambeth Trolled On The Net

Constantin, the 31 year old pop singer from Romania has asked for more action to be taken against internet trolls following recent homphobic comments on social media.

With over a million views on YouTube, his single “One Boy from a Little Town” has received over 170 comments on the popular platform. Many of which showing concern and disgust towards the Romanian pop Singer.

The song was written with the current Brexit debate in mind, and described it as a story about his life.

“While the video is about my life, when I produced it, I was thinking of the many people from Europe who left their homes, families and old lives behind – like me – hoping for a new life and opportunity in the U.K. Now, all we see is confusion and worry about the future.”

“One Boy from a Little Town 2018 is a tribute to immigrants and a reminder to the British people of the tremendous contributions immigrants have made. Without them, Great Britain would be less great.” Wrote the singer in his YouTube description.

A YouTube user wrote in the comments section “This video is disturbing! As a romanian I feel deeply offended. This video displays romanian migrants as people who eat and live in trashcontainers. Furthermore it falsley claims that countries like the UK are not reciving foreigners well. This peace of “work” is dividing people and should not be allowed to be published as an advertisment.”

While other comments shows disgust, hatred, homophobia and xenophobia for the romanian born singer living in Lambeth.

He said “Moving to London was the best thing that ever happened to me and it’s become my home. However, since releasing my music video I have seen a different side to the British public and my social media accounts have been bombarded with ignorant comments about Brexit and disgusting, hateful remarks about me and my sexuality.”

Constantin continues his plea for more action to be taken against comments from YouTube and other platforms where users can openly express themselves freely.

Lambeth Council Leader Quits To Be Head Of Violence Reduction Unit For Sadiq Khan

The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has appointed Lambeth Councils leader Lib Peck to run his Violence Reduction Unit (VRU)

Sadiq Khan announced that Lambeth Councils former Executive Member for Crime and Public Protection (leading London boroughs’ cross-party work to keep Londoners safe) and current leader of Lambeth Council has been appointed to lead London’s new Violence Reduction Unit (VRU).

Set up in 2018, the Violence Reduction Unit is bringing together specialist in health, local government, police, probation and community organisation to learn and apply the successful public health approach used in Glasgow and elsewhere to tackle violent crime and the underlying causes of violent crime.

The full time roles and responsibilities appointed to the former Lambeth Council leader will include:

• Development of a long-term partnership strategy to tackle violence across the capital;

• Responsibility for the VRU’s budget and resources, including contributions from the Mayor and other partners;

• Building and leading an effective team with a diverse skillset and background;

• Being the focal point of contact for the Mayor, Deputy Mayors and senior leaders of the other partner organisations involved in the Unit, including the Metropolitan Police Service, London Boroughs, criminal justice agencies, health services, schools and community organisations;

• Making sure that communities and young people are properly represented and consulted.

Violence Reduction has been a core part of Lib’ career within Lambeth and in the third sector. She has been the leader of Lambeth Council since 2012 where she focused on addressing domestic violence and supported the adoption of a public health approach to violence reduction in the borough in March 2018 so it will be no surprise to  her what is expected.

Speaking at last weeks Mayor’s Question Time London Assembly Member Susan Hall says that Mr Khan has missed an opportunity to appoint a specialist in crime. Ms Hall expanded more on Twitter about Lib Peck’s record in Lambeth.

Trump Immigration Law Could Be Illegal

The United States President Donald Trump can stop migration as a matter of “national interest” a white house statement said. However rights groups have called the move “illegal.”

Prior to the mid-term elections Mr Trump frequently denounced the caravan of thousands of Central Americans, who made their way north through Mexico.

Migrants who enter the US border via the southern border illegally will no longer be eligible for asylum under a new rule according to the Trump administration.

The new rule would apply to those who breach any presidential restriction on entry, and their asylum will be denied.

Immigration was a primary focus in Donald Trump’s mid-term election campaign.

This weeks mid-term results will enable Democrats control of the house, while Republicans get to keep the senate.

This result should mean that Trump’s new law will be enforced, however it may not be in the way that he intended.

Trump Immigration Policy Video Stunt

Donald Trump latest attempt to gain votes, with video claiming democrats let in a killer immigrant.

The US mid-term elections are fast approaching and on Tuesday 6th of November 2018 it will be decided whether republicans or democrats will keep control of both chambers in congress.

With less than a week to vote, Donald Trump has pinned a diverse campaign style ad video to his Twitter account.

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1057728445386539008

The video blames democrats for letting in Luis Bracamontes, who is an undocumented immigrant from Mexico who killed two police officers in Sacramento in 2014.

The video posted by President Trump shows Bracamontes grinning in court and threatening to “kill more cops soon”.

People have compared Trumps ad to infamous Willie Horton ad attack in 1988 by the then democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis.

Just 35 of the 100 seats in the Senate, and all of the 435 seats in the lower House of Representatives are up for grabs.

To take control of the legislative agenda and block Trump’s ability to implement his programs, the Democratic party needs to control both houses.

Trump would require Republican votes even if the Democrats won every available seat next week.
