Situation remains volatile for residents first responders in Fort McMurray

first_imgThe Canadian PressFORT MCMURRAY, Alta.—An ever-changing, volatile situation is fraying the nerves of residents and officials alike as a massive wildfire continues to bear down on the Fort McMurray area of northern Alberta.In the wee hours this morning, weary evacuees from Fort McMurray were sitting on buses headed for Edmonton after being forced out of their temporary shelter in nearby Anzac.They had arrived there late Tuesday after being evacuated from their homes in Fort McMurray. By Wednesday morning, the Anzac recreational centre was a bustling hub filled with people, tables of food and rows of cots.By that evening, it was eerily silent and empty.Officials with the Rural Municipality of Wood Buffalo had been notified of changing weather patterns and weren’t taking chances, ordering the evacuation of Anzac, Gregoire Lake Estates and Fort McMurray First Nation.Anzac resident Bree Baumberger said her family was surprised when RCMP told them of the evacuation order Wednesday night.“They told us to get out—It is a safety issue,” she said. “They just want people to have enough time and not be like Fort McMurray where all of a sudden the fire is on you.”In another part of the community an RCMP cruiser rolled into Travis Vickrey’s yard.“Aren’t you aware of the evacuation order? It’s mandatory right now,” the Mountie said. “The fire is coming south.”Vickrey was annoyed at the short notice as he quickly packed three cats and other belongings into the family’s vehicle. They were heading to nearby Lac la Biche.Regional Mayor Melissa Blake urged “more patience in northern camps” as the move became a necessity. “No need for panic, just steady progress.”But as the province declared a state of emergency Wednesday, it was clear the situation that had forced the evacuation of 80,000 people was “unstable,” as Scott Long of Alberta Emergency Management told reporters.The wildfires that had already torched 1,600 homes and other buildings in Fort McMurray continued to do damage throughout the day. Reports of homes being burned mounted, while officials advised a new school being built in one neighbourhood had been destroyed.Residents anxious for updates on their own neighbourhoods turned to social media, prompting the writer of the municipality’s official Twitter feed to issue a plea: “I’m providing as much details as I can re: fire/neighbourhood/street … please be patient, we’re doing our absolute best.”There was good news—the water treatment plant was saved, and Long said the downtown core was being held “through some Herculean efforts” of firefighters. Most importantly, there was still no indication of injury or death.But the images being seen around the world were largely ones of devastation—scorched trucks, charred homes and telephone poles, burned out from the bottom up, hanging in the wires like little wooden crosses.Alberta Premier Rachel Notley flew up to survey the situation first-hand, and tweeted “heartbreaking” pictures of the fire from above. As high as her helicopter was, she said the plumes of smoke reached even higher.“So far, I’d have to say people have been amazing,” she said in the evening, after a visit with evacuees at a giant Edmonton sports arena.“They’ve been incredibly patient. They’ve followed what they’ve been asked to do. They’re focusing on taking care of each other, their families, their neighbours.”Blake agreed her city is strong and gave a shout-out to Slave Lake, another northern Alberta community devastated by wildfires in 2011.“We will hope to follow in the shadow of Slave Lake in our perseverance and resolve,” declared the mayor. “And as we look to the future, this is still a place of incredible strength, resiliency and vibrancy.”last_img read more

Tim Hortons says its China expansion will include menu with congee matcha

first_imgTORONTO – The president of Tim Hortons says a plan to conquer a crowded Chinese coffee market hinges on tailoring its menu to local habits and tastes — including offering congee and matcha alongside signature items like double doubles.Alex Macedo believes the coffee chain’s plan to open 1,500 stores in Asia over the next decade will face lofty competition from a slew of companies who have dominated the market as the continent warms to drinking coffee.“We are late to the game for sure,” Macedo said in an interview with The Canadian Press.He’s made regular trips to Asia to observe the operations of rival coffee purveyors, including U.S. heavyweights Starbucks, McDonald’s, and Dunkin’ Donuts; Beijing-based start-up Luckin Coffee; and U.K. chain Costa Coffee.“They created an atmosphere that is almost get in and get out, and it is very fast paced,” he said, noting the tables and ambience differ from that in Canadian and U.S. cafes, where patrons tend to sit and linger with their cup of java.China’s coffeehouse atmosphere contrasts against the “home-y” feeling that Macedo wants to build to encourage customers to spend as much as time as they’d like at Tim Hortons Asian locations, a custom popular with many Canadian Tims regulars.“We want our team members to be the most welcoming staff in China,” said Macedo. “We want people to be able to sit in our restaurants for 10 hours if they want to with only one cup of coffee if they want to or not ordering a cup of coffee at all.”The company’s coffee has already proven popular in early overseas testing, he said, as have the brand’s iced cappuccino drinks.They will be featured on the menu alongside products featuring matcha — a tea-based powder that comes in a bright green hue and is a perennial favourite in Asia.The food selection will reflect local taste preferences, he said, adding the company has noticed Chinese consumers don’t eat baked goods or doughnuts as frequently as Canadians.A completely local breakfast and lunch menu will feature Asian-style rice porridge called congee.“A lot of (Asian) coffee shops will sell a piece of cake or whatever, but they don’t have a kitchen like we do, so that is where we are spending most of our time, trying to figure out what to serve for breakfast and lunch,” he said.Despite some of the adjustments the brand will have to make, food industry expert Robert Carter thinks the expansion makes sense because China’s growing middle class is willing to spend their increased wealth on eating out, and more people are starting to drink coffee over tea.However, Carter believes Tim Hortons needs to find a balance between serving local cuisine and signature Tim Hortons treats in order to succeed in China.He pointed to one menu item in particular: iced coffees.Research, he said, indicates it is the fastest-growing area for coffee, particularly with younger consumers.“They will try traditional brewed coffees, but it is really those coffee-based, sugary beverages that are driving them into coffee shops, not only in China, but in North America,” he said.“I would expect Tims to have a pretty aggressive portfolio with those types of beverages.”Tims announced an agreement last month with private equity firm Cartesian Capital to bring thousands of restaurants to China, with plans to open the first location in 2019.Tim Hortons has previously announced plans to expand to Spain, Mexico, Great Britain and the Philippines.Its U.S. expansion, however, appears to be faltering. Last month it closed four locations in Ohio, the latest in a string of closures south of the border in the past several years.In June, after reports parent company Restaurant Brands International was scaling back on its U.S. expansion plans, Macedo said in a statement that the company has seen softer comparable sales growth in the U.S. in more recent quarters amid a very competitive environment.Follow @Tara_Deschamps on Twitter.Companies in this story: (TSX:QSR)last_img read more

New UN handbook aims to help countries in AsiaPacific region respond to

Countries in the Asia-Pacific region today received a new United Nations handbook that focuses on the role of human rights in responding to the HIV/AIDS epidemic.Produced by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and the Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), the Handbook on HIV and Human Rights is designed to assist the region’s national human rights institutions to integrate HIV into their human rights mandates. Launched at the eighth International Congress on AIDS in Asia and the Pacific, being held in Colombo, the publication provides a basic overview of the role of human rights in an effective response to the HIV epidemic and suggests concrete activities that national institutions can carry out.“This is a critical time for national human rights institutions to engage in the AIDS response,” said Dr. Peter Piot, UNAIDS Executive Director. “We have learned that we will not succeed against HIV unless we address discrimination, gender inequality and other human rights abuses that drive the epidemic. National human rights institutions need to be full partners in the day-to-day AIDS response.”United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour referred to the Handbook as “an essential guide for national institutions in their efforts to ensure that States are held accountable for protecting the rights of people living with HIV.”Also today at the Congress, the Deputy Executive Director of the UN Population Fund (UNFPA), Purnima Mane, emphasized that HIV prevention efforts will be more effective if linked with sexual and reproductive health. “We know what it takes to break the silence about HIV,” said Ms. Mane. “Going beyond the silence into action is the only way we can face the future generations knowing that we are doing our best to ensure an AIDS-free generation. Let us never forget that prevention is for life.” During the International Congress, which is being held from 19 to 23 August in Sri Lanka’s capital, Colombo, OHCHR, the UN Development Programme (UNDP) and UNAIDS will be co-hosting a satellite event entitled “Unblocking the Barriers to Universal Access: the role of national human rights institutions.” The event, which includes the participation of the Asia Pacific Network of People Living with HIV (APN+), will address how national institutions can work with partners to address critical human rights issues in the AIDS response, and promote accountability, including to universal access. 22 August 2007Countries in the Asia-Pacific region today received a new United Nations handbook that focuses on the role of human rights in responding to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. read more

UN agencies begin relief campaign as flood waters swamp southern Pakistan

10 September 2011United Nations humanitarian agencies have begun to assist communities in southern Pakistan that have been pummelled by monsoon rains which have claimed the lives of almost 200 people and destroyed or damaged nearly one million homes in an area still recovering from last year”s catastrophic floods. An estimated 4.2 million acres of land have been inundated by floodwaters caused by torrential rains during the annual monsoon season, with Sindh province the hardest hit and Balochistan also badly affected. About 200,000 people are displaced from their homes and require immediate assistance.The Pakistani Government has called on the UN to support its own relief operations and a joint Pakistani-UN humanitarian team has visited some of the affected areas and met with local officials to discuss the disaster.The UN and Pakistan have begun a rapid needs assessment in Sindh, with shelter, food, water, sanitation, hygiene and health care expected to be the priorities.The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), which said that overall needs remain “huge,” reported that nutrition and promoting an early recovery in affected areas will also be key challenges.Timo Pakkala, the UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Pakistan, said that after “seeing first hand today the devastation and vast amount of flood water in Sindh, now is a crucial time to stand in solidarity with the people of Pakistan, and build on the lessons learned from the recent 2010 floods response to support the Government of Pakistan in their ongoing monsoon relief efforts.”Last year”s floods killed some 2,000 people and submerged about a fifth of the country”s land, affecting 20 million people in total. read more

Report says Labrador hydro project better managed but still facing risks

ST. JOHN’S, N.L. — A new report says Newfoundland and Labrador’s Crown utility Nalcor is doing a better job of keeping track of the cost and the risks associated with its timetable for the $12.7 billion Muskrat Falls hydroelectric project.However, the EY report released Thursday, also says the project still faces a high level of risk because of work complexity and the approach of the winter season.EY also says Nalcor has identified three risks not included in its June forecast, including significant protest unrest, vegetation and soil removal, and unforeseen directives from government.The report follows an interim report released in April 2016 that called for better oversight of a project that was significantly behind schedule and plagued by cost overruns.The hydro project, which is estimated to be about 78 per cent completed as of June, has ballooned in cost by about $5 billion since it was first approved five years ago.The EY report says changes made in planning and forecasting have improved the level of certainty around cost and the schedule to complete the project.Natural Resources Minister Siobhan Coady says the report demonstrates “significant progress” in managing Muskrat Falls.“Since coming to office our government has worked methodically and diligently to ensure the Muskrat Falls project is managed with greater accountability and transparency,” Coady said in a news release. read more

Ohio State womens basketball falls to Nebraska 6253

The Ohio State women’s basketball team’s Big Ten slate hasn’t been kind to them this year. It was more of the same for the Buckeyes against Nebraska Thursday, as the Cornhuskers dropped OSU, 62-53. In the process, the Buckeyes lost their seventh conference game this season. They might be losing hope of a turnaround, too. “To be honest, it’s hard to come to practice and to try to be positive,” said OSU senior guard Amber Stokes. OSU, which sits 10th in the conference, struggled to match the Cornhuskers‘ (15-6, 5-3) marksmanship from behind the arc. En route to what is now a three-game winning streak for Nebraska, the Cornhuskers unloaded 25 3-point shots and connected on nine of them. That theme seemed apparent early in the contest. Less than two minutes into the game, the Cornhuskers scored two 3-pointers while the Buckeyes struggled to make a basket. OSU’s shots clanked off the iron time and time again, but for a while, it seemed Nebraska wasn’t faring much better. After the initial 10 minutes of the contest, though, when both teams only made 25 percent of their shots, the Cornhuskers improved to 38 percent of their shots and the Buckeyes to 33 percent. Nebraska, however, proved to be the more aggressive team in the first half, including a 5-of-13 outing from behind the arc. Conversely, OSU missed all seven of the 3-point attempts in the game’s first act. Despite OSU senior guard Tayler Hill’s 12 first-half points and junior center Ashley Adams’ eight points, the Cornhuskers continued to build a cushion between themselves and the Buckeyes and head into intermission leading, 34-24. It also didn’t help that OSU turned the ball over 10 times compared to Nebraska’s five miscues. The second half started off better for the Buckeyes, with a jumper by redshirt junior center Aleksandra Dobranic within the first ten seconds. On the subsequent possession, Nebraska turned the ball over, which translated into an easy layup for Hill, who finished the night with 22 points. But for every shot the Buckeyes made, the Cornhuskers had an answer. Their lead, which withstood a 41 percent outing from the floor from OSU, never fell below six points for the rest of the half. Part of that had to do with Nebraska junior forward Jordan Hooper’s season-high 28 points. “My teammates did a really good job of finding me and I just shot it,” Hooper said after the game. OSU head coach Jim Foster said that he thought OSU’s defense was weak on Hooper. “I don’t think we did a great job of identifying where Hooper was. And when you have a player like that, you don’t start your defense under the 3-point line, you start it one foot outside the 3-point line,” Foster said. “That just comes with experience and understanding and making decisions. And hopefully we learn something from them.” The Buckeyes (11-10, 1-7 Big Ten) are now 10-3 at home this season. OSU is set to next take on Indiana Sunday in Bloomington, Ind., at 2 p.m. read more

Behind Homicide Numbers Real People Real Stories

first_imgOver the Fourth of July weekend we learned two high profile Baltimoreans, connected intimately to the criminal justice system lost loved ones to violence.Baltimore Police spokesman, T.J. Smith delivers the horrific news of homicides, that devastates families, because it is part of his job. But, tragically for Smith on July 2, it was his turn to receive the dreaded news nobody wants to hear. Smith was actually working when he found out his younger brother, Dionay Smith, 24 was fatally shot.Sean Yoes (Courtesy Photo)“Of course I’m upset, angry, mad, and all those things. But, I can only channel the negative into the positive and pray for the soul of the person responsible for this,” Smith said via Facebook.“He (the murderer) ruined his life for something small and petty, no doubt. So, many young people lack the foresight to understand the gravity of their poor decision making,” Smith added.According to Smith, his younger brother had three small children and was working two jobs to support his family.The day before Smith was murdered, yet another young Black man was gunned down, shot in the back in the early hours of July 1. And this one hurt me to my heart.The media has seized upon the fact that Louis “Cody” Young, 22, was the stepson of skilled defense attorney Warren Brown. And I’ve covered Brown’s notable career for several years. But, I met Cody’s family even before I began reporting on Brown.I visited the house Cody grew up in, the morning of July 5, and sat with his grandfather, veteran attorney William Dorsey. His wife, Cody’s grandmother Betty (Ms. Betty to me), was still asleep. I sat in the family room of their home and stared at the walls filled with photos of their children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. There he was; Cody, that rambunctious little boy, with the mischievous grin and round face that lit up like the moon when he smiled broadly.Also, among the family photos on the Dorsey’s wall were numerous photos of Cody’s mother Donyelle Brown; from the time she was a baby, to a teenage beauty queen, a young bride and a young mother. Cody and his older sister Leah, were and still are the shining lights of her life.Cody, the rugged little boy with the mischievous grin, grew up to be a big, strong young man and an outstanding football player. Donyelle was so proud of him. Now, the mother has to bury her only son because he was at the wrong place at the wrong time.Behind every homicide “number” there’s a story and a family somewhere, whose world has been torn asunder.Almost exactly 13 years ago, June 22, 2004, me and my family found out my beloved mother, Leslie was murdered in her home. Her killer is unknown, her murder remains unsolved.  Tragically, our story is only one of hundreds, thousands of families that have lost loved ones, irreplaceable, to the wanton violence Baltimore is now famed for.Behind every homicide number, there’s a story…I still remember our first Thanksgiving (her favorite holiday) without my mother. I almost died of heartbreak. Since then, I have prayed that nobody I know, nobody that I love would have to endure that type of pain. Because the ebbing away of that pain is a slow, often tortuous process.But, the pain does subside, eventually and you move forward. But, the pain never fully goes away. You just learn to live with it.Yet, that is little solace to those experiencing the first waves of catastrophic heartbreak, when a loved one is snatched away because of violence.Homicide is not a numbers game.Sean Yoes is the Baltimore editor of the AFRO and host and executive producer of, “First Edition,” which airs Monday through Friday, 5-7 p.m. on WEAA, 88.9.last_img read more

NBA 2K15s Facescan feature is creating an army of mutants

first_imgOne of the more interesting things to come from this year’s NBA 2K release is a feature called Facescan. If you own a PlayStation Camera for your PS4 or a Kinect for your Xbox One, this feature allows you to scan your face into the game and superimpose it on your player of choice.Unfortunately, like just about every other iteration of this technology, the software isn’t exactly living up to the hype. Instead, users are discovering that the photos being added to their players look more like something you’d see in a horror film.The problem with any software that uses photos of your face to create a 3D object is often the inability to deal with every possible environment. Lighting has to be perfect, you can’t have complex 3D structures in the background, and your face needs to be held at just the right angle in order for everything to work.While NBA 2K15 offers you some basic pointers for getting a successful Facescan, you still basically need to either crouch down and lean in to your console camera or lift it up to your height for the best possible photos. Even then, as many have discovered, this system is still fairly flawed.Unfortunately there’s not an easy way to solve this problem, especially when you consider how relatively low res the cameras in both the PS Camera and the Kinect are. These are cameras that only really need to capture 1080p video, and so the ability to take photos is fairly limited.It would be amazing if somehow you could import photos from second screen apps on your Android phone or iPhone, but for now I guess we can all just sit back and watch this train wreck together.last_img read more

Travellers Love to Home Swap

first_imgAiming to offer travellers the opportunity to re-create a scene from Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet’s tinsel-town flick, ‘The Holiday’, a new home-swapping website has hit the accommodation sector.Launching earlier this week, Love Home Swap offers holiday-makers the opportunity to exchange homes, creating a cheaper and unique holiday experience.Love Home Swap founder Debbie Wosskow described the site as a “revolution in social travel” and said it could save Aussie travellers thousands during economic uncertainties.With the company’s research finding up to 53 percent of Australians unable afford a holiday over Christmas, Ms Wosskow explained home-swapping can save up to $2,000 per vacation and can see a holiday-maker travel like a local rather than a tourist.“It’s very common for swaps to include cars, kids’ toys, ski equipment etc so the savings can be much higher,” the company’s founder added.“You then get to holiday like an insider and swap as many times as you like – for less than the cost of a single night in a hotel or villa.  “The result is that 62 percent of our members are able to holiday more frequently, and for longer periods.”Love Home Swap said it has properties available on its site for up to 70 countries and ranges from cabins, lofts, beach houses and even castles.According to Love Home Swap’s research, one in two Aussies said they would take part in home swapping vacations over the next 12 months.

In Demand SingleFamily Rental Homes

first_img September 13, 2017 709 Views HOUSING mortgage Single Family Rental Market Zillow 2017-09-13 Nicole Casperson in Daily Dose, Featured, News In Demand: Single-Family Rental Homescenter_img Rising home prices and low inventory isn’t just a narrative for homebuyers. As rental houses have been in high demand, a lack of supply is boosting rental home prices.According to Zillow, the housing crisis caused the demand for single-family rental homes to increase as families struggled to be able to afford to buy homes. The report noted that almost half of all renters consider renting a single-family home, but with the current housing trends, they are unable to do so.”When the market crashed, many families lost homes they owned during the foreclosure crisis, and now may not be able to afford to buy another as home prices rise,” said Dr. Svenja Gudell Chief Economist at Zillow.Zillow’s data reports that the median rent for houses rose 1.3 percent annually to a monthly rent payment of $1,404. In addition, there are fewer single-family homes to rent than a decade ago. According to the report, “almost 20 percent of all single-family homes across the U.S. were rented in 2016, up from 13.5 percent 10 years prior.”In addition, Zillow’s data reveals that a 20 percent down payment on a typical U.S. home costs more than two-thirds of the median household income.”Those who want to buy are finding it difficult to find the right one, or may need a bit more time to come up with a down payment, but still want the advantage of space that single-family residences often provide,” said Gudell.This, coupled with the foreclosure crisis turning millions of homeowners into renters, is a big reason why demand for single-family rental homes has risen over the last few years, according to Gudell.Zillow noted that the full data for this report titled 2017 Zillow Group Consumer Housing Trends Report (ZGR) is set to release this fall.

Lutheran Sunset Home Grafton (Ellsworth Funeral Home Madison SD)60 Minutes shocked some viewers Sunday evening when it showed a team of hackers listening in on a phone call between a reporter and a congressman The hack carried out with the politician’s consent was meant to demonstrate a security flaw in the global communications grid The Germany-based hackers pulled off the stunt by targeting a system called SS7 that allows phones on different wireless carriers to exchange information with one another enabling roaming cross-carrier billing and other features Think of it as a middleman between different wireless carriers The hackers were targeting the network not the individual phones on either end of the call That means the hack would work even if the congressman Democrat Ted Lieu of California was using a password or taking other steps to protect his phone’s contents Security researchers have previously alerted the world to flaws in SS7 But some vulnerabilities clearly remain Some observers argue the hole hasn’t been filled because it enables governments to snoop on surveillance targets What can you do to avoid the 60 Minutes hack The best option is to forego your phone’s normal calling feature in favor of communication apps that offer what’s called “end-to-end encryption” With them your conversations are secured from the time they’re sent to the moment they’re received One popular example is Signal favored by journalists and security experts (Edward Snowden is among the software’s fans) All computer security advice however should carry this important caveat: Pretty much anything can be hacked If you are seriously concerned about your information staying secure it’s best not to send that data over a communications system of any kind 60 Minutes’ demonstration highlights a wrinkle in the ongoing debate over privacy and national security While law enforcement groups say encryption apps like Signal make it harder to solve crimes others argue they offer law-abiding citizens a way to keep their communications safe from prying eyes and ears Representative Lieu who sits on House subcommittees for information technology and national security argues in favor of strong encryption “You cannot have 300-some million Americansand really right the global citizenrybe at risk of having their phone conversations intercepted with a known flaw simply because some intelligence agencies might get some data” he said on the show Write to Alex Fitzpatrick at alexfitzpatrick@timecomAfter all the verbiage expended and hot air vented ahead of the Nov 20 by-election in a constituency in southeast England called Rochester and Strood a picture turned out to be worth a thousand words and then some On the day of the special election prompted by the defection of a sitting Member of Parliament from the ruling Conservatives to the insurgent United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) a prominent member of the opposition left-of-center Labour Party tweeted a series of photographs as she toured the area canvassing support for her party’s candidate One apparently innocuous post encapsulated so many uncomfortable truths about Britain its old wounds and new fractures and the global crisis of trust in the political mainstream that within hours the tweeter MP Emily Thornberry had resigned as a member of Labour’s front bench team The controversy eclipsed a result that in its own way told the same story of fragmentation and tumult: victory for the anti-immigration anti-European Union UKIP Here is Thornberry’s tweet Look closely If you even begin to understand why this picture caused offense you are either from the UK or have spent more than the occasional vacation in its temperate if increasingly distempered climes Image from #Rochester pictwittercom/rOjTgpskmF Emily Thornberry (@EmilyThornberry) November 20 2014 So why did this tweet do so much damage One answer lies in the medium not the message The digital revolution is transforming not only methods of communication but the world itself Politicians have barely started to comprehend what this means for the business of politics much less for wider society Such profound changes have left the slow-moving political mainstream floundering The Labour Party has its roots in the labor movement and purports to be the party of working people In finding the sight of a modest terraced house festooned with England flags and with a white van parked on the forecourt noteworthy enough to tweet Thornberry highlighted the gap between the Westminster elite and ordinary voters As Britain’s largest red-top tabloid the Sun put it she was “seeming to sneer at a White Van Man’s England flags” White Van Man is the Joe Six-Pack or Walmart Mom of UK politics representative of a segment of the electorate mainstream parties are eager to court but find increasingly hard to reach The White Van Man in this case turned out to be a car dealer named Dan Ware who revealed in a brief interview with the Daily Telegraph that he didn’t even know a by-election was taking place He said: “I will continue to fly the flags I don’t care who it pisses off I know there is a lot of ethnic minorities that don’t like it They [the flags] have been up since the [soccer] World Cup” After more than four years of austerity policies imposed by Britain’s Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition Labour should be in pole position to win the votes of White Van owners across the nation when Britons elect a new government in May 2015 Instead it is struggling under the hapless leadership of Ed Miliband and a band of metropolitan parliamentarians as apt to flinch from the classes who once were their mainstay as to engage with them But this isn’t just a problem of the left Margaret Thatcher made an easy connection with so-called Middle Britain Britain’s current Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron posh and urban has tried unsuccessfully to outsource that job to spin doctors tabloids and the few members of his team not to come from privileged backgrounds The Liberal Democrats who used to attract protest votes that might otherwise have gone to Labour or the Conservatives sacrificed those potential votes as well as the support of their own well-meaning grassroots by deciding in 2010 to enter coalition with the Conservatives The outcome of the Rochester and Strood by-election illustrated the scale of their plight: their candidate Geoff Juby got only 349 votes and lost his deposit Britain’s first-past-the-post electoral system favors big parties and majority governments When the current coalition took office in 2010 it was the first such arrangement in 70 years But the weakness of those big parties is making space for others to flourish such as the Scottish National Party which came close in September to breaking up the United Kingdom and may yet succeed in that aim; and in England UKIP which is pushing for a break with the European Union UKIP’s rhetoric on restricting immigration chimes with voters who have seen competition for jobs and housing intensify and the strain on public services increase as the UK has battled to reduce its debt and ride out a prolonged period of economic instability England’s Cross of St George the flags that caught Thornberry’s attention with such dramatic consequences have become symbolic not only of England but England’s struggles with identity and between increasingly diverse populations Far-right groups such as Britain First have sought to co-opt the flag and that may be why Thornberry took the snap It is often hard to distinguish England flags hung in support of the soccer team from England flags hoisted in anger Britain First’s candidate Jayda Franzen took a laughable 56 votes at the Rochester and Strood by-election By contrast UKIP which always insisted it is anti-Europe not xenophobic has shed some of its harder-right elements and has professionalized and broadened its appeal Mark Reckless the MP whose recent defection to UKIP from the Conservative Party sparked the by-election won the ballot comfortably with 16867 votes (421%) compared to the Conservatives’ 13947 votes (3481%) and Labour’s 6713 (1676%) Like Thornberry’s tweet the meaning of the results is open to several interpretations but all of them point in the same direction: to the possibility that the UK’s May 2015 elections won’t grant an overall majority to a mainstream party and could leave smaller parties such as UKIP holding the balance of power The Conservatives have promised to hold a referendum on Britain’s relationship with Europe if they win and to try to renegotiate that relationship UKIP simply wants out and across Europe parties with similar messages are growing in strength It may prove
