Poo overload: Northern Ireland could be forced to export a third of its animal waste
Country looks to export excess manure from intensive pig and poultry farms to combat rising pollution and emissionsA surge in pig and poultry farming in Northern Ireland has built a multimillion-pound industry, feeding British consumers chicken and pork.

Second homes are a gross injustice, yet the UK government encourages them | George Monbiot
The underlying reason for Britain’s housing crisis is not lack of supply. It’s because greed has been allowed to displace needHow big would our housing crisis be if it were not for second homes? It’s a question almost no one in public life wants to ask, let alone answer. But it becomes more urgent every day.By a second home, I don’t mean one continuously rented to another household. I mean a property used either as a personal holiday home or as a place to stay while working away from your main home: in other words, a luxury that deprives other people of a necessity.

People are quitting their jobs in record numbers. Companies should take note – and treat them better | Arwa Mahdawi
Labour shortages are causing widespread disarray. Perhaps employers might consider something radical: paying people more and exploiting them lessGot an advanced degree? Twenty years of experience in your field? The ability to drop everything to respond to work emails? Great! Then you meet the qualifications for an entry-level job paying miserable wages. But you’ll need to have a gazillion interviews and write a thank-you letter after each one to have any chance of getting it, of course.That’s an (only slightly exaggerated) reflection of what the job market has looked like for a long time. Wages have been stagnant for decades. Companies have been demanding more, and offering less: the power has been very much in employers’ hands. Now, in the US at least, the power balance may be shifting; people are quitting their jobs in record numbers. Almost 4 million Americans quit their jobs in April: the highest numbers since government record-keeping for labour turnover began in December 2000. Meanwhile, in the UK, a lot of people are seriously thinking about quitting – one study found 38% of employees are looking to change roles in the next year. Continue reading...

Democrats seek way ahead after voting rights bill hits Senate roadblock
The White House warned democracy was ‘in peril’ but while key Democrats stay committed to the filibuster, progress looks difficultAfter nearly six months of watching Republicans relentlessly make it harder to vote in the US, Democrats suffered a major blow on Tuesday after GOP senators used a legislative maneuver to halt a sweeping voting rights and ethics bill.The vote doesn’t kill the bill, but it marks one of the most significant setbacks for Democrats in Joe Biden’s presidency so far. Democrats heralded the legislation as their No 1 priority, even knowing they were unlikely to get any Republican votes for it. The bill would amount to the most significant expansion of the right to vote in a generation, requiring early voting and automatic and same-day registration, while prohibiting excessive manipulation of electoral district boundaries, a process often called gerrymandering.

A Home Office visa blunder is breaking my heart
It sent me a biometric residence permit with the wrong expiry date, and plans for a family reunion are dwindlingI fear I will never be able to see my family again because of Home Office blunders. I applied for a spouse visa in July 2020. I didn’t receive a decision, but in January it emailed to say it had recently sent me a biometric residence permit (it hadn’t) with the wrong expiry date, and asked me to return it. I’ve since tried to establish whether they have mixed my file up with someone else’s and what my status is. The Home Office hasn’t responded to my formal complaint within the requisite 20-day window, or to my MP’s intervention. It’s been more than 18 months since I last saw my family in Canada and the US, and three of my relatives are seriously ill. I have plans for a reunion in July, but the likelihood of that is dwindling, and my heart breaks a little more every day.SH, LondonVisa delays are among the most distressing complaints in my inbox, and they are proliferating. Most are from applicants who have been waiting up to 18 months for a decision. Your case stands out because there’s clearly been an error, and the Home Office doesn’t appear to be interested in addressing it. Continue reading...
