      So schools across the country lose lollipop men and grammar schools get massive amounts of Money. Lucky for Kent, who have bucket-loads of grammar schools. They'll get massive amounts of money in the hundreds of millions. What a load of crock. It has to be rich fat cat pensioners with a dozen properties for rent voting these scoundrels in. The old have already took enough from the younger generation, chance to buy a home, place in the EU, shoving us with this austerity driven leadership and now the right to a decent education.

      Are you kidding private landlords are getting completely fu**ed by the Tories as are most self employed people actually. A lot of the Tory policies at the moment are almost left of centre and they are hitting the middle classes hard, it sucks but what option is there?

      i don't agree on this one. People are still selling homes without a survey of the home. It's often first time buyers footing the bill, or risk buying a heap of sh*te. Landlords can just rent if they don't sell, Tories shot down the fit for habitation bill. They rejected the safety laws that would have prevented greenfell, because there are so many Tory landlords. They talked about stopping buy to let, so greedy landlords can't extort poorer people to own more houses.. what did they do? f**k all.

      The solution is simple, stop letting home owners get free stamp duty, make this free for first time buyers and increase it for buy to let mortgages. Make it 5% of property price,so buy to let mortgage needs to pay 10k  stamp duty on a 200k property. Watch how many greedy landlords stop buy to let.

      Gaza clashes: Dozens killed as US opens Jerusalem embassy

      At least 43 Palestinians have been killed and 2,200 wounded by Israeli troops, Palestinian officials say, on the deadliest day of violence since the 2014 Gaza war.

      The violence came as the US opened its embassy in Jerusalem, a move that has infuriated Palestinians.

      They see it as clear US backing for Israeli rule over the whole city, whose eastern part Palestinians lay claim to.

      But US President Donald Trump hailed the move in a video message.

      He told the dedication ceremony that it had been a "long time coming", adding: "Israel is a sovereign nation with the right to determine its own capital but for many years we failed to acknowledge the obvious."

      The US, he added, remained "committed to facilitating a lasting peace agreement".

      Palestinians hurled stones and incendiary devices while the Israeli military used snipers, as black smoke poured from burning tyres.

      The health ministry, run by Gaza's Islamist rulers Hamas, said children were among those killed on Monday.

      The Hamas-led demonstrations are part of a six-week protest dubbed the "Great March of Return".

      Israel says the protests are aimed at breaching the border and attacking Israeli communities nearby.

      The Israeli military said 40,000 Palestinians had taken part in "violent riots" at 13 locations along the Gaza Strip security fence.

      It said the Israeli military had killed three people trying to plant explosives near the security fence in Rafah. Aircraft and tanks had also targeted military positions belonging to Hamas in the northern Gaza Strip, it said.

      There have also been violent clashes between Israeli police and protesters who raised Palestinian flags outside the new embassy. Several protesters were detained.

      EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini has called for "utmost restraint"

      Palestinians have held weekly protests in the run-up to their annual commemoration of what they call the Nakba or Catastrophe, when hundreds of thousands of their people fled their homes or were displaced following the foundation of the Israeli state on 14 May 1948.

      Scores of Palestinians have been killed since the protests began. Thousands more have been wounded.

      Hamas, which is in a state of conflict with Israel, had said it would step up protests in the lead-up to Tuesday, the official Nakba commemoration.

      It says it wants to draw attention to what Palestinians insist is their right to return to ancestral homes in what became Israel.

      "Today is the big day when we will cross the fence and tell Israel and the world we will not accept being occupied forever," a science teacher in Gaza, Ali, told Reuters news agency.

      A small interim embassy will start operating from Monday inside the existing US consulate building in Jerusalem. A larger site will be found later when the rest of the embassy moves from Tel Aviv.

      The opening ceremony was brought forward to coincide with the state of Israel's 70th anniversary.

      Mr Trump's daughter, Ivanka, and her husband Jared Kushner, who are both senior White House advisers, joined US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan for the ceremony.

      After Ivanka Trump had unveiled the seal of the embassy, Mr Kushner said in his address: "When President Trump makes a promise he keeps it... We have shown the world that the US can be trusted. We stand with our friends and allies."

      Mr Kushner also referred to Mr Trump's withdrawal from the "dangerous, flawed and one-sided Iran deal", drawing applause from the guests.

      Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said: "What a glorious day. Remember this moment. This is history. President Trump, by recognising history, you have made history. All of us are deeply grateful."

      A spokesman for Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said on Monday: "With this step, the US administration has cancelled its role in the peace process and has insulted the world, the Palestinian people and the Arab and the Islamic nation and it has created incitement and instability."

      Arab League chief Ahmed Abul Gheit said it was "shameful to see countries participating with the US and Israel in celebrating the former's embassy move to occupied Jerusalem in a clear and grave violation of international law".

      The status of Jerusalem goes to the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

      Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem is not recognised internationally and, according to the 1993 Israel-Palestinian peace accords, the final status of Jerusalem is meant to be discussed in the latter stages of peace talks.

      Israel has occupied East Jerusalem since the 1967 Middle East war. It effectively annexed the sector, though this was not recognised by any countries until Mr Trump's declaration in December 2017.

      Since 1967, Israel has built a dozen settlements, home to about 200,000 Jews, in East Jerusalem. These are considered illegal under international law, although Israel disputes this.

      Various countries once had embassies based in Jerusalem but many moved after Israel passed a law in 1980 formally making Jerusalem its capital.

      Israel,The only democracy in the Middle East my f**king arse it is..

      Trump had to call the embassy move because he's in debt to Sheldon Andelson,Andelson bankrolled the Trump presidency..

      Trump is compromised by agents of the Israeli state.

      Jared Kushner went cap in hand to Qatar and beg for $500 million to bail out his family business, Qatar said no, now are boycotted by the puppets Gulf Monarchies..

      I stand with the brave people of the open prison Gaza.

      Bloody hell you really don't follow the news do you.

      Stamp Duty is already higher for buy to let, introduced by the Tories.

      Mortgage interest tax relief is being phased out which means that from 2020 you can't deduct mortgage costs from your rental income, this means that for some private landlords they end up paying more tax than they collect in revenue, again introduced by the evil Tories.


      So tell me again how the Tories help private landlords?

      I think he does, not for this but for bringing North Korea to the negotiation table something the great Obama utterly failed to do.
      The Iran deal was a crap deal because it allowed Iran much needed funds to start restocking and rearming their conventional armed forces and to start agitating in the region again.

      This embassy move has been a US promise for a long time, its something Obama refused to commit to.

      Not just Obama but all Presidents...like I said, Trump is compromised! Israel has a stranglehold on the USA & majority of its representatives as with Britain.

      As opposed to the rest of the middle east which is so tolerant and passionate regarding human rights.

      The other ME countries don't f**king boast that they are beacon of democracy in that region, Israel does...Zionism needs eradicating from British politics..
