Tube offices under threat
London Underground bosses’ plan to close all 268 tube ticket offices was revealed in a leaked Transport for London document last week.
Up to 6,000 staff could be sacked. Transport unions RMT and TSSA have said they will fight the plans.
Chief cop knew and didn’t tell
Met boss Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe knew police spied on murdered teenager Stephen Lawrence’s family in 2012. But he took 11 months to tell Stephen’s family.
Police spied on the Lawrence campaign for justice after police failed to properly investigate Stephen’s murder in 1993.
Tories bail out rich school
The Tories have cleared £5 million debts of the King’s private school in Tyneside to help it become a state-funded academy.
Fees at the posh school had reportedly been £10,000 a year. Once it’s an academy rich parents will pay nothing.
It seems the Tories can find money if they want to.
Academies pay themselves
Britain’s biggest school academy chain, AET, has paid nearly £500,000 into the private business interests of its trustees and executives over the past three years.
Academies are funded by the state.
