Good morning! In about 10 minutes, we will be expanding on our discussion of Individual Causes of Delinquency by looking at #gender & #delinquency

I look forward to your questions & following along. How do you identify?

#CRJ107 #MoraineValley
The term #gender is complex, so what elements of delinquency are we going to examine in this discussion?

We are going to try to answer the question as to why gender differences are significant in the study of delinquency

#CRJ107 #MoraineValley Image
I think it is essential to acknowledge that gender identity is much more complex than differences between male & female offending

So the Gov't has gone from promising a review of #VaccinePassports in February...

bbc.co.uk/news/uk-561696…

to officials saying #domestic uses are "dead" and "not going to happen" in May...

independent.co.uk/news/uk/politi…

to the review stating they won't be #mandated in early July...
...to @BorisJohnson announcing they WILL be #mandatory for (mostly) young people from the end of September:

thetimes.co.uk/article/labour…
Meanwhile, and despite MONTHS of denials*, it turns out the Government has already spent £23.6 million on #VaccinePassports 👇 and has already cut deals that could run until 2023 at least...

*sigh*

Opening what I suspect will become a very long [Thread] on the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill (#PCSCBill) which, having been introduced last Tuesday, gets its #SecondReading *next* Tuesday - #precipitous, to say the least...

bills.parliament.uk/bills/2839
While it is all too often merely lip service, the Ministerial statement of #HumanRights compliance on the cover of this Bill 👇 is particularly #hypocritical, given its actual contents...
Many have been writing about the impact of this proposed legislation on lawful #protest, notably @IanDunt...

...who, critically, picks up on the extraordinary #HenryVIII power @pritipatel is trying to grab.

(Let's hope THAT one gets struck quickly!)

So @cabinetofficeuk (@GDSTeam) has updated the #DataEthicsFramework for government and the public sector today - the first version of which was published by @MattHancock in 2018, when he was at @DCMS:
gov.uk/government/pub…

Two obvious questions:

1) Where are the published...
...ratings for all of the government & public sector data projects / programmes that have been started since 2018?

A framework that neither demands nor provides publicly visible outputs surely fails on two of its own 'overarching principles'; #transparency and #accountability...
2) Other than "consult with your team leader", what happens when a project 'fails' the framework - say a national programme that doesn't do a #DPIA, or a body that employs a #discriminatory #algorithm?

An 'ethics' framework without meaningful #consequences ain't #ethical at all.

While it would be good for someone to *publish* this leaked memo, some details of #OperationMoonshot make no sense:

For example, how could any "digital #immunity passport" be issued on the basis of a low-confidence #infectivity saliva test? Image
Beware the devil you wish for! If returning to work means submitting to a lifelong* #discriminatory health-linked ID, then what will you have traded away for short-term gain?

20) Read @IndiaFactsOrg's Hindu #HumanRights report documenting systematic violations of human rights & sanctioned discrimination against Hindus by the Indian State. indiafacts.org/hhrr2019/
@IndiaFactsOrg 21) Govt of India does following:
- persecute & subdue hindus and tradition.
- confiscate hindu temples & schools.
- spl. rights & patronage of nonHindu rel.
- actively help those who convert out of Hinduism.
- Oppose Gharvapsi.
Example:

@IndiaFactsOrg 22) Modi expanding #antiHindu system:
MMS provided 75% funding to non-Hindu #discriminatory scheme. Modi increased it from 75% to 100%:-

1) Starting a data series explaining India's #antiHindu system, 2nd class citizen status of Hindus and need for #HinduCharter (hint: #antiHindu system enjoys multi partisan support of all political parties, all branches of govt & so called pillars of #democracy & #equality)
2) Fountainhead of India's #antiHindu system is article 29&30 of constitution which cleverly denies #equalrights to Hindus allowing govt to enact #discriminatory laws/funding/programs & enables Supreme court to adjudicate contradictory laws in #antiHindu manner. #HinduCharter
3) Indian Govt confiscation of Hindu temples is 1 of the largest #religionfreedom violation in world. ALL political parties&Judiciary mostly support Hindu temple confiscation. For all practical purpose,Constitution right to freedom of religion is for nonHindus only. #HinduCharter

"#OrganDonation is an altruistic act that should be celebrated..." (p6)

So why not do that, and devote more resources to making donation easier - an approach that has delivered measurable results - instead of a regressive move to #OrganHarvesting?
gov.uk/government/con…
Describing a *significantly narrowing* shortfall (cf. graph, also p6) in available organs is not a justification for a change to #OrganHarvesting; nor are emotive appeals. This reads like #PolicyBasedEvidenceMaking.
"We want... to change the culture around organ donation in this country in the longer term." (p7)

Stopping it being a gift, freely given, and instead the State 'deeming' you to have given permission will certainly change that! Presumption ain't 'donation' and will erode trust.
