This week the judges at Nottingham Crown Court dealt with a wide range of cases. A pensioner was locked up for a city centre stabbing, a man was spared jail over his stolen cannabis crop, and a 55-year-old man was dealt with for having thousands of indecent images of children on his computer tower. Over at the magistrates' court, a mum was left with a scar after being hit by a shoe, a woman was dealt with for stealing steak from Aldi and a disabled OAP got a second drink drive ban.

“My mom’s story is like a fairy tale,” the boy said before he fell asleep on the living room sofa. His mother calls him her little angel. They live together in an unpainted shack at the back of a dirt cul-de-sac among trailers and birds of paradise on the outskirts of Houston. Sunshine filtered through the window. The light was at once welcome and bitter, because the rain had only just lifted after Hurricane Harvey in September and much of the city was still flooded. Water had not forced them out of the house, and the boy’s mother, a 42-year-old undocumented woman who requested anonymity for fear of being deported, thanked God aloud; had the floods come, she doesn’t know where they would have gone. She has already been deported to Honduras once before and lost her asylum case upon returning to Houston three years ago. Every time she sees someone in uniform, she said she thinks she might never see her son again. “Recently, a cop stopped me, and I felt … [Read more...] about How Trump moved the Mexican border north
This week, the ‘sugar tax’ on fizzy drinks came into force in the UK. Might it signal the end of our love affair with all things sweet? The Telegraph travels to Mexico, where cola consumption per capita – and obesity rates – are among the highest in the world. Photographs by Jordi Ruiz Cirera.By Henry Bodkin 6 APRIL 2018 • 7:18PM oises Sanchez has intelligent, humorous eyes, but as he takes out his phone and brings up a picture of Merari, his eight-year-old daughter, they are pinched with sadness. ‘As you can tell, she’s not thin,’ he says. ‘We’re taking her to dance classes and have given her an eating schedule to control her diet. The other kids have started to bully her – I tell her to try not to get sad.’ Moises, a lawyer specialising in corporate fraud, is a doting father but an uncertain role model. He himself weighs 26 stone and is addicted to sugary food and drink. In a sombre apartment above a … [Read more...] about Can sugar taxes solve the obesity and diabetes epidemics?
Is there a secret plot to stop Brexit? It’s a favourite theme of the likes of the Daily Express and the Daily Mail, and I’ve often been identified as being part of it. Secrecy is a rather absurd suggestion given I’ve made no secret of my dislike of Brexit and regularly go on broadcast media saying so. I’m not sure you can “plot” to do something like this given the only way Brexit won’t happen is if that is what a majority of British people want at the end of this process. There is not some coordinated plan that millions have signed up to. If we reach the point where the British people arrive at the view that we are better off fighting to change our country from within the EU rather than accepting a very bad deal for our departure, that will be an organic process. Our relationship with the EU, as I have written before on these pages, is intensely personal, not just political. I am a quarter Irish, have a Danish brother-in-law, … [Read more...] about Citizens from Everywhere: Meet the people who are fighting to give us a vote on Brexit
