Op-ed: Moms for Clean Air saw the raw power of industry lobbyists 22.3.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
The John Swallow case shows political corruption in Utah at its finest. In essence, Swallow, as Utah Attorney General, had a “for sale” sign on his office door. Unfortunately, what Swallow did was not unique. He got caught and thoroughly exposed. The experience of citizen advocates lobbying for clean air this past legislative session revealed that many elected officials in Utah have also been seduced by big money and power. This was demonstrated to us with daily high-fives and chummy back-slappi...

Air pollution was public enemy No. 1 this legislative session — the subject of polls, petitions, protests and more than two dozen proposals for scrubbing Utah’s smog-laden skies. But, in the end, only a third of those bills passed, and not the real “game changers,” according to a consortium of clean-air advocates who are calling on the public to continue to press policymakers for meaningful change. “Compared to past, recent sessions where [regulatory] funding was cut and bills were passed to ins...

Remains of Shipman's victims destroyed without telling relatives 17.3.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Inquiry about Greater Manchester police's behaviour is one of three arising from whistleblower's allegations The police watchdog has begun an investigation after Greater Manchester police admitted keeping the remains of Harold Shipman's victims for 12 years and then destroying them without telling bereaved relatives. The Independent Police Complaints Commission said on Monday that it was investigating whether senior officers misled the families of 12 of the serial killer's victims over the storage of organs. Shipman was convicted of 15 murders in 2000, but is thought to have killed many more. He hanged himself in prison in 2004. Bereaved relatives were finally told last November that the force had kept the organs for 12 years in case Shipman mounted a challenge against his murder convictions. The remains were taken to an incinerator and burned in February 2011 without the families' knowledge. The investigation is one of three begun involving Greater Manchester police (GMP) after a ...
