Stu’s news: Black lives matter

This weekend saw a huge protest in support of Black Lives Matter. The protestors were highlighting a range of issues, of course but with one central demand so far as I can tell. They want the British government to grow a set of bollocks and forthrightly condemn Trump’s administration for allowing, even inciting the murder of black people on US streets. They want the killing to stop both here and abroad and they want our government to stand up and be counted as part of the cure – instead of passively negotiating trade deals with a country whose record on human rights abuses is so blatantly bad it isn’t even surprising any more.
