From the Comey camp, ‘laughter’ at idea he broke the law by leaking

From the Comey camp, ‘laughter’ at idea he broke the law by leakingBenjamin Wittes, editor in chief of the Lawfare blog and senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, told Yahoo News during an interview Friday that the suggestion by President Trump’s lawyer Marc Kasowitz that Comey should be investigated did not hold merit. “Any complaint on what Jim testified yesterday, in my opinion, would be frivolous for the following reason,” said Wittes in an interview with Yahoo News Deputy Editor Daniel Klaidman.

After 72% of young people voted in the General Election, 24-year-old Adam Bradford from South London has called on our major party leaders to not let his generation down

Social entrepreneur and Queen’s Young Leader Adam Bradford has this morning penned a public letter to the leaders of the Conservative and Labour parties, calling for unity and proper representation in any negotiations.

He said: “I could not be more proud today, however a hung parliament brings me feelings of worry. Represent us, your constituents. We need the best deal for Britain. Now we need your leadership more than ever. Our young people’s futures depend on stable, forward-thinking political action right now. This is your chance to prove that our votes mattered and that our democracy is worth having. We are now a nation undecided, perhaps even divided.”

Adam is available for comment today on youth views post-General Election, call 07950 313113 24/7.

His letter, posted online and via social media to political leaders, reads:

Theresa May & Jeremy Corbyn

Dear political leaders,

I could not be more proud today. 72% of young people got out there and voted in last night’s General Election.

However this proudness is juxtaposed with feelings of worry. I am concerned that a hung Parliament may turn into chaos and Britain may not get a good deal.

Many youth voters chose Labour over Conservative, chose a politics of idealism and of hope rather than a politics rather stuck in the status quo.

In your negotiations, do not forget your constituents. Do not forget those of us who voted for you, whether we chose Conservative or Labour. We need you to represent us and make this country strong, stable, secure and prosperous.

This vote shows one thing, party politics now has no overall rule. We are a nation undecided, perhaps divided. We need your leadership now more than ever and do not let us down. Make us all proud to have used our vote this year.

Recruitment trade body responds to shock hung parliament result

Commenting on the unexpected result of the UK General Election, Samantha Hurley, Director of Operations at The association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo), comments;

“It seems that Theresa May’s gamble on calling a snap election hasn’t paid off and it is unfortunate that this result does not offer the level of stability that the UK desperately needs. In light of this uncertainty, the next Government should be especially careful to avoid knee jerk changes to taxation, employment regulation or visa controls associated with our exit from the EU.”

“The impact of this result on both the permanent and flexible labour markets has the potential to be significant. Ever since the phrase ‘gig economy’ was coined, media attention has consistently focused on lower skilled and lower paid workers and we are absolutely determined to ensure that the new Government recognises that professional independent flexible talent is not only a completely distinctive group within the gig economy but that it also has a critical role to play in the future success of the UK plc. We hope the new administration will be open to working closely with us to ensure collateral damage is kept to a minimum.”
