‘Manhandling’ and disunity in the House of Commons

‘Manhandling’ and disunity has engulfed Britain’s House of Commons as Truss attempts to steer the ship

Reports of ‘manhandling’ and disunity in the UK’s House of Commons, with the Labour party has losing its vote on banning fracking.

230 MPs voted for the ban, with 326 voting against – resulting in a majority of 96.

The Tory government had ordered all of the party’s representatives to oppose Labour in the vote, or face expulsion altogether.

But this didn’t sit well with a number of key MPs.

As the vote approached, three Torys – including the former climate minister – warned they could not “vote to support fracking”.

Now, the Labour Party is reporting instances of “manhandling” and “bullying” as the vote took place in the lobby.

Conservative members of parliament were allegedly unsure about whether they were allowed to vote with the Labour motion.

Discussions took place over uncertainty about whether it was being treated as a vote of confidence in the prime minister.

Tory MP Charles Walker broke down the chaos – what he described as a “shambles and a disgrace.”

Walker says it is “inexcusable” and there is “no coming back” for the government.

He’s had enough of “talentless” people in cabinet, adding he hopes it was “worth it” for those who supported Truss’ rise to power.

Walker has been an MP for 17 years, adding his “patience has reached the limit.”

Earlier, there were also rumours the chief whip, Wendy Morton, and deputy chief whip, had also stood aside.

Their role is to pull the party into line and ensure discipline, when required.

But the BBC is now reporting both will remain in post, for now.

TikTok implements stricter guidelines on weight-loss drug promotion

Published

on

TikTok is tightening its regulations on influencers who promote weight-loss drugs like Ozempic.

With over 170 million users in the US, the app aims to prevent the spread of potentially harmful content related to rapid weight loss.

Starting in May, TikTok will prohibit influencers from posting “before-and-after” photos and restrict minors from accessing weight-loss content deemed risky. The crackdown extends to any content promoting drastic weight loss methods, aiming to combat the promotion of unrealistic body standards.

However, some influencers, like Dave Knapp and Kim Carlos, criticise the move, arguing it discriminates against those with health conditions. Others fear losing their income as TikTok takes down their content, prompting concerns about the platform’s future amid potential US bans.

As TikTok enforces stricter guidelines, influencers may seek alternative platforms to share weight-loss content. Despite the popularity of drugs like Ozempic and Wegovy, the crackdown reflects growing concerns about the impact of such promotions on user health.
