Sale of the century: the privatisation scam 22.8.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Privatisation promised to turn the UK into an island of small shareholders. It failed: the faceless state bureaucrats have been replaced by faceless (better-paid) private bureaucrats and big foreign corporations. How did we get to this point? Train fares are going up. We learned that last week, although "learn" is putting it strongly. We knew they would. It's not as if they would go down: train fares go up, like electricity bills, gas bills, water bills, rent and chief executives' salaries. To the loyalists of the Thatcher-Blair-Cameron succession, higher train fares are a positive, because they mean lower subsidies: another incremental step in a 35-year programme to shift the burden of paying for infrastructure from the well-off to the strugglers. To most of us, it's another sign of the folly of selling off the railways. But amid the dismal annual round of fare rises, it's easy to miss another, stranger, more gradual sign of the failure of the vast social and economic experiment conducted on the ...

Polio double vaccine gives better protection, study finds 22.8.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Oral vaccine followed by injection could help fight disease in conflict-torn areas, according to WHO

A double vaccine could help battle polio in some of the world's most remote and conflict-torn regions as new research suggests giving a single vaccine shot to children who have already had the oral vaccine greatly boosted their immunity.

The World Health Organisation said the combination strategy was already starting to be used in mass vaccination campaigns in some hard-hit areas and was being introduced for routine immunisations in developing countries.

Australia defends detention of child asylum seekers, says measures needed to stop trafficking 22.8.2014 DNA: Top News
Australia's immigration minister defended his country's tough policies on asylum seekers on Friday, saying measures including the detention of children and denial of permanent visas were needed to stop dangerous people-smuggling ventures. Scott Morrison was giving evidence to an Australian Human Rights Commission (HRC) inquiry into the wellbeing of children in immigration detention centres on the Australian mainland and on remote islands in the Pacific and Indian oceans. Conservative Prime Minister Tony Abbott won an election last September after campaigning heavily on tough immigration policies, which have been criticised internationally but which polls show remain popular with voters. Asked why the average time in detention had tripled since September to almost a year, Morrison blamed the previous Labor government for allowing large numbers of boat arrivals and for blocking legislation to allow for temporary visas. "Children being detained in facilities has been a consequence of the policies that more ...

Three refugees killed as they flee Ukrainian conflict – military 22.8.2014 FirstPost: World

KIEV (Reuters) - Three refugees including a five-year-old child were killed near the eastern Ukrainian city of Luhansk when rebel gunfire hit their car, a Ukrainian military spokesman said on Thursday. Around 500 people a day have been fleeing Luhansk, a pro-Russian separatist stronghold that has been battered by months of fighting between rebels and Ukrainian forces, but some have been caught in the crossfire while attempting to leave. "The car was travelling with a large white flag, but that did not stop the fighters," spokesman Andriy Lysenko said in a televised briefing.
