Christopher talks to Big Brother about his “friendship/relationship” with Mark and admits that while he loves his “melodramatic” character, he doesn’t like it when he creates a scene in front of the other Housemates, admitting “If you’re trying to embarrass me or make a mockery out of me publically, please don’t do that because I won’t hang around Mark” When questioned about what he wants from the relationship, Christopher admits that he doesn’t know where it’s going as there are some trust issues, saying “if you’re not prepared to show a bit of faith in me, I don’t think it’s going to work”

Goodness, rumours are flying around that Orlando Bloom and Justin Bieber have had an altercation.

Orlando Bloom is known for his calm and Zen like personality, however it seems that Justin Bieber knows the buttons to press after news emerged that the actor allegedly threw a punch at JB in a restaurant in Ibiza.




The two were spotted at the Cipriani restaurant a poolside eaterie in Ibiza – in the early hours of Wednesday morning, when customers were disturbed by an argument, which meant the pair had to be pulled apart by pals.


Apparently, reports suggest that JB made a derogatory remark about Bloom's ex wife Miranda Kerr, but sources tell The Sun, that the remark was made only after Bloom's swing.


The New York Post reports that the crowd cheered when Orlando made the swing for Justin.


Yesterday pictures of Justin Bieber turned up on a posing site popular with gay men.

Gay and lesbian police officers sometimes fear the consequences of revealing their sexuality as they rise through the ranks, it has been revealed.

by Newsdesk | 30th July 2014



Some senior police officers are worried that coming out may impact on their career prospects and that homophobia still exists within some policing teams.

At the Police Superintendents’ Association of England and Wales annual conference in September, officers from across the country will discuss encouraging the service to be more accepting of diversity, ensuring gay and lesbian officers who would like to be out can be and the benefits of this to police officers and communities, in a session titled: “Taking the uniform out of the closet.”

Mike Gallagher, the association’s lead on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) policing, said: 'It must be emphasised that homophobia is not accepted in policing. The police service has come a long way, as has society, and that has to be acknowledged. But there is more to be done.

'We want colleagues to feel they can be themselves at work. Sadly some police officers and staff are not confident to be out in their police forces, particularly as they rise through the ranks. It is of course a choice - and for some officers it is a conscious decision - but some fear homophobia still exists in areas of policing.

'We need to improve the confidence of some LGBT communities in policing and having role models – senior gay and lesbian police officers being confident and open about their sexuality – would help this.'

He added: 'We need a police service that reflects the public we serve - this will help gain trust and confidence in communities but also in fighting crime. And this will also bring a diversity of thinking to the many policing challenges the service currently faces.'


TWO FIFTHS OF GAY SUPERINTENDENTS EXPERIENCE DISCRIMINATION


A survey of senior police officers - carried out by the Police Superintendents’ Association of England and Wales - has revealed four out of 10 lesbian or gay superintendents and chief superintendents say they have “experienced discrimination in the policing workplace” during their careers.

One respondent to the survey said: 'Discrimination by some senior officers exists, but it is at a subtle underlying level.'

Another added: 'As a senior leader I would love to be openly gay.'

A total of 27 of the association’s 1,300 members – who include senior operational commanders and leaders delivering local policing, specialist investigations and operations and support services within police forces – took part in the survey.

Responding to the survey’s findings, Mr Gallagher, a Met officer, added: 'The fact that 40 per cent of our gay and lesbian members have experienced discrimination in their careers is frustrating and unacceptable.

'It is very disappointing that we are still talking about this as an issue in 2014. We need to do better. And we can.'


Ruth Hunt, chief executive of Stonewall, said: 'Here at Stonewall we know that people perform better when they can be themselves, so it’s fantastic to hear the Police Superintendents’ Association of England and Wales proactively encouraging LGBT employees to be themselves at work while emphasising the fact that homophobia will not be accepted in policing.'

Despite working, 48% of 20 to 34 year olds who live with their parents do so because they can't afford to rent or buy their own home.

by Newsdesk | 30th July 2014




New research from Shelter found that a lack of affordable housing was the single biggest reason that so many young adults are unable to fly the nest. Currently a quarter of all 20 to 34 year old working adults in England – 1.97 million people – are living with their parents.


Several areas of the country see a much higher proportion of young working adults living with their parents. Hotspots for the 'clipped wing generation' include Castle Point in Essex where 45% of working 20-34 year olds live with their parents; Knowsley in Merseyside where it's 42%; and Solihull where the figure is 38%.


According to our polling, over half of working young adults worry that living in the family home is holding them back from leading an independent life.





Sarah has a good job, but has lived with her parents in the family home in Croydon on and off for the past ten years as she tries to save for a deposit. 'If I move out noe the reality is I'll be stuck paying expensive rents for the rest of my life. I know I'm lucky to have a job and somewhere to live, but the thought that I'm going to be living like a teenager into my late 30s or even 40s is really disheartening.'


In June it was revealed that house prices had risen by 31% in London since 2010.


FIRST TIME BUYER WOES

The latest government figures show average house prices for first-time buyers in the UK have risen by 11.3% in a year.


Campbell Robb, chief executive of Shelter, said: 'The 'clipped wing generation' are finding themselves with no choice but to remain living with mum and dad well into adulthood. And those who aren't lucky enough to have this option instead face a lifetime of unstable, expensive private renting.




'The government knows that the only way to turn the tide of the housing shortage is to fill the gap between the homes we have and the homes we need. Bolder action is needed to meet the demand for affordable homes and not inflate prices further. Politicians of all parties must now put stable homes for the next generation at the top of the agenda.'

Plus he looks good in speedos.
