President Trump could not say on Christmas Day how long the federal government would be closed. He vowed one again, in Oval Office comments, to keep it closed, however, so long as Democrats refuse to appropriate the money he needs for his border wall. 'I can't tell you when the government's going to be open,' he told reporters. 'I can tell you it's not going to be open until we have a wall, a fence, whatever they'd like to call it. I'll call it whatever they want. But it's all the same thing. It's a barrier.' The president was supposed to be in Florida this week with his daughters and sons.

Travellers are likely to die more than a decade earlier than non-Travellers, and one in five Gypsy Traveller mothers will experience the loss of a child, compared with one in 100 in the non-Traveller community. Many Roma families were being exploited by “rogue landlords” and were being paid below the minimum wage, the report added. The Conservative MP Maria … [Read more...] about Government has comprehensively failed Gypsies, say MPs
