Tory leadership contest: Rishi Sunak says Government has ‘moral responsibility’ to help with energy bills

Rishi Sunak has vowed to boost winter energy payments for pensioners and people on low incomes, arguing that the Government has a “moral responsibility” to do so. The Tory leadership contender explained how he would “go further” with support packages for struggling families to BBC’s Nick Robinson during an interview broadcast on Wednesday evening. When confronted with the BBC’s projection of the average energy bill costing £3,582 this October, Mr Sunak said: “Those numbers are worse when I was Chancellor, that’s why I do feel a moral responsibility to go further and get extra help for people over winter in what is a really difficult time.” Energy bills cost on average £1,277 in October 2021, according to the BBC. The Tory leadership candidate said he couldn’t put a precise figure on his promised increased energy payments without knowing official figures, but vowed to cut VAT on energy bills “this Autumn”. He said that it would be introduced on top of the £550 support eligible families are already receiving, bringing the total amount of support to around £700 to £800. He confirmed that extra support could total a few billion pounds, but defended the amount of spending against Liz Truss’s proposed economic plan. “There is a huge difference between what I’m suggesting which is temporary support to deal with a specific challenge compared to what Liz is proposing, £50 billion in extra borrowing every year.” Mr Sunak vowed to “be straight with people” about the cost of living crisis, saying “no amount of starry eyed boosterism” was going to help people “get through the winter”. He promised that his goal was to “restore trust back into politics” and said that Conservative members could “trust him” because of his work as Chancellor during the pandemic. “I’m prepared to lose this contest if it means that I’ve been true to my values and I’m fighting for the things I think are right for this country,” he said. “I’d rather lose on those terms than win by promising false things that I can’t deliver.” He added: “I would rather lose having fought for the things that I passionately believe…than win on a false promise.” “My judgment is right about tackling inflation and tackling the cost of living, and they can trust me. “Because as they’ve seen in this leadership contest, I’ve been honest with them about challenges, doesn’t make my life easy, but that’s how I am, that’s how I’ll be as prime minister. “I’ll be straight with them, and that’s what leadership is about.” On migration, Mr Sunak said the “most pressing migration problem we have is people coming illegally in small boats across the Channel”. He also said as prime minister he would continue Britain’s support to strengthen Ukraine and “weaken” Russia, and would impose further sactions. Just a few hours before Mr Sunak’s interview, Liz Truss made an appearance on GB News. She pledged to reverse the national insurance rise “on day one” of her tenure if she was elected as leader of the Conservative Party. Ms Truss has been invited to be interviewed by BBC’s Nick Robinson, and is still “considering” the offer. The new prime minister to replace Boris Johnson will be announced on September 5.

Cancelling Batgirl Isn’t Just Baffling — It’s A Crushing Blow To Women Like Me

When I heard the news in 2021 that Afro-Dominican actor Leslie Grace was cast as Batgirl in the Warner Bros. superhero film of the same name, I was ecstatic. Amid ongoing news of Covid-19 variants and Capitol insurrection developments, this story coming from the entertainment world felt like a breath of fresh air — a cause for celebration during a chaotic moment in time. With the conversation of representation in Hollywood taking center stage after the #OscarSoWhite hashtag, it also felt very intentional, like maybe the film production company was finally saying what I’ve always known: Black Latinas are worthy and capable of being leading ladies in hit movies. Then Warner Bros. changed its mind, about the film and, apparently, about women like me.

Ezra Miller: Vermont police seek mother and three children who were living at actor’s farm

Police in Vermont say they are seeking a 25-year-old woman and her three children who had been living on Ezra Miller’s farm. Rolling Stone reported that the Vermont State Police had repeatedly tried to serve the mother with an emergency care order over the weekend due to concerns for the children’s safety. The Flash actor appeared evasive and told officers that the woman hadn’t lived at the farm in months, the Vermont State Attorney’s office said in a court document obtained by Rolling Stone. It’s the latest in a series of legal troubles facing the 29-year-old actor. On Monday, Miller was charged with felony burglary of a property in Stamford, Vermont. Vermont State Police said in a statement that it had received a complaint that several bottles of alcohol had been stolen from an address in County Rd on 1 May. The homeowners were not present at the time. After reviewing surveillance footage and speaking to witnesses state police said they had probable cause to charge The Flash actor, 29, with felony burglary of an unoccupied dwelling. More than three months later, Miller was “ultimately” located just after 11pm on Sunday night and was issued with a citation to appear in Vermont Superior Court Bennington Criminal Division on 26 September. The officers who cited Miller in the burglary case had been attempting to serve the unnamed mother with an emergency care order, according to Rolling Stone. Police named the victim as Isaac Winokur, of Stamford, Vermont, a small rural settlement of around 850 residents in Bennington County. Vermont State Police did not immediately respond to a request for comment on attempts to serve the emergency care order. Rolling Stone reported that Miller met the woman and her children when he was in Hawaii earlier this year, and invited them to stay with him in Vermont. Miller has been linked to a series of disturbing incidents involving firearms, drugs and allegations of violence in recent months. Last month, the parents of 18-year-old indigenous activist Tokata Iron Eyes told The Independent that Miller used violence and drugs to maintain a “cult-like” grip over their daughter. Sarah Jumping Eagle and Chase Iron Eyes are seeking a protective order to force the actor to cease all contact with Tokata. In comments to Insider, Tokata this week denied she had been abused or groomed by the actor, calling the allegations a “disgusting and irresponsible smear campaign”. Miller was also arrested twice in Hawaii earlier this year. In March, he was arrested in a karaoke bar in Hilo for disorderly conduct and harassment. The next month he was charged with second-degree assault after allegedly throwing a chair at a woman and striking her in the head at a private address.
