Theresa May's Tories facing huge election backlash over manifesto pledges that target pensioners

Theresa May is under ­growing pressure as Tory policies that attack the elderly started to unravel.
Critics believe social care reforms, dubbed the “dementia tax”, and the axing of winter fuel payments will cost the PM dearly on June 8.
Minister Damian Green struggled to justify why anyone needing long-term home care should pay for it if they have assets worth £100,000 or more.
The Work and Pensions Secretary also refused to say how many pensioners would lose help with their heating bills – worth up to £300 a year – under means-testing outlined in the Tory manifesto.

Morrissey has yet another row - this time with a very fiery television personality


As dinner companions get, outspoken singer Morrissey and fiery US television personality Judge Judy make an unlikely pair.
So it is perhaps little surprise that the former Smiths front man wanted to “ram her face into her own spaghetti” during a recent meal with the Statesider, Judge Judy Sheindlin.
Asked to describe the “last row” he had, the Manchester-raised LA resident and staunch animal rights activist told the Mail on Sunday’s Event magazine: “I once sat on the next table to Judge Judy, and for three solid hours she would not stop talking.
“The woman sitting with her contributed one or two ‘umms’, but Judge Rude-y could not shut up. I was ready to ram her face into her own spaghetti.”

Facebook begins crack down on spam websites


On Wednesday, Facebook announced plans to start cracking down on links to "low-quality" web pages as part of the company's plan to show people "fewer misleading posts, and more informative posts." Facebook is starting with the ratio of ads to actual content; a page with too many ads and not enough original text or images is considered spam.
If a site's ads are "disruptive, shocking, or malicious," Facebook will make sure fewer people can see and click on it. The company continues to explain that the links aren't being banned; if you post one it will still appear on your wall but their news feed ranking will drop and they will be seen by far fewer people if anyone at all. 

The changes will happen over the next few months, and Facebook says it could mean a boost in traffic for publishers that produce quality content.

Trump Admin: Regina Askia Williams shares the kind of questions U.S Immigration officers asked her


In a post on Facebook hours ago, ex-beauty queen and former Nollywood actress turned U.S based nurse, Regina Askia-Williams, wrote;
"15 years in America as a green card holder, i never felt any type of pressure to change status, all these years until Trump came. I always thought the blue passport was not necessary afterall i was still nursing big political ambitions for Nigeria.
I never cared for the inconvenience of being separated from the rest of my family who are all Americans to boot, ( except Stephy who is French) when ever we had to pass through immigrations on our many travels. And then Trump and his extreme vetting policies which by the way folks is no joke.

"Questions like forsaking all royalty and titles, will you bear arms for the country, when and why did your name change from Imaobong to Regina, have you ever been arrested, do you have any criminal records, do you owe money under a different name, when did you first come into America, when and where did you get married, how many times have you been married, what was your entry point into the country ( to ensure I did not float over on a log or scurry over in a tunnel). Why does your adopted daughter have the same name as you ( africans know its a thing of honor to have a child named after you), what is your source of income, what outstanding fees do you owe ( at this point my heart flutters, maybe Great Lakes has told them things about school loans). I was surprised they didn't ask if I was born female. Anyway after all said and done..... I got a handshake and walked out of there as............"
