We’re hugely proud to have helped secure a life-saving fund for abuse survivors
SOME women cannot leave their abusive, controlling partner for one simple reason: They have no money, nor access to any.
They end up staying.
Some, appallingly, end up dying.
So we are hugely proud to have helped secure a £300,000 fund from which survivors can get the grants they need to break free.
That could pay for food, nappies, a deposit on a home or the first rent.
Enough to leave a violent partner.
Congratulations to Women’s Aid for its campaign — and Home Secretary Suella Braverman for securing the cash.
We are certain it will save lives.
Our new club
BRITAIN joining the massive CPTPP trade block is a historic, watershed moment made possible only by Brexit.
It is already now the same size economically as the EU — but crucially predicted to dwarf it by 2050.
Trading freely with Japan, Canada, Australia, Mexico and others will add billions to our economy.
And we are not ruled by distant parliaments or courts.
Membership will make rejoining the EU impossible too, so expect a barrage of Remainer abuse.
Well done to Rishi Sunak and Kemi Badenoch for signing this vast deal.
When The Sun championed leaving the EU to trade directly with the wider world, this was the future we imagined.
Price is wrong
THE Tories are making a mistake trying to force a reluctant public into major lifestyle changes in a reckless dash for Net Zero.
Take Energy Secretary Grant Shapps’ plan to make gas pricier and electricity cheaper.
He hopes the 80 per cent of homes with gas central heating will swap boilers for £15,000 heat pumps, known to struggle in cold winters.
That’s wildly unlikely — and politically tone-deaf.
As for ordering car makers to ensure one in five vehicles sold next year is battery-powered, how?
Most of us won’t buy £30,000 cars with tiny mileage ranges, at the mercy of a woeful charging network.
We all want a greener world. But we also know Britain’s globally insignificant emissions are not the real problem.
And that the eco solutions we are being strong-armed into buying are neither ready nor remotely affordable.
TOO many airlines treat disabled passengers as second-class citizens.
They leave them sitting in the plane long after everyone else has got off. Or they carelessly damage their wheelchairs.
TV presenter Sophie Morgan is backing a campaign by Disability Rights to see the guilty airlines fined. So are we.
Disabled passengers must have the same rights as anyone else.
