Anger as Kent Council Turns Retirement Home Next Door to School into Asylum Centre

AP Photo Asylum seekers are to be housed in a former old peoples home which Kent county council originally closed because they said it would be too expensive to maintain. The building sits directly behind a primary school, and local residence have been out to protest the plans, arguing there are more suitable sites available. Local residents were only given a few weeks notice. So far, over 500 have signed a petition opposing the move and many attended protest outside neighbouring Joy Lane primary school on Saturday. Victoria Madden, a parent at the demonstration, told Kent Online: “The protest is about the fact we were not told and had no chance to voice our opinions on the housing of 16, 17 and 18-year-old ‘young men’ – as they put it in our meeting – probably no more than 20 feet from the school. “They’re talking about putting up six foot fences, 24 hour

Smith, who has hinted multiple times that Kelly’s transactions are driven by race.

Boxer: Defunding Planned Parenthood ‘Vicious Attack’ on Women’s Health

boxer Tuesday on MSNBC’s “The Rundown With José Díaz-Balart,” Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) said this week’s attempt to defund Planned Parenthood in light of videos that show Planned Parenthood doctors negotiating over the price of fetal tissue is “a war on women’s health” that has been going on for almost a hundred years.

Both Christian and secular groups protested against the planned new powers on the grounds that they diminish freedom of speech – according to the Telegraph, the National Secular Society branded the plans one of the biggest threats to freedom of expression ever seen in the UK. Christian groups were also concerned
