Of 'Newsnight', wrens, the 'Evan' treatment and Barack Obama as Homer Simpson "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

As you may already know, Newsnight is getting a new editor. 

Three months after Ian Katz leaped, loudly purring, onto the lap of Channel 4, the BBC has appointed Esm Wren from Sky News as the tattered BBC flagship's new editor.

According to Guido Fawkes, Esm is "the right choice out of the final two" (a somewhat ambiguous wording, either giving her the thumbs up or damning her with faint praise - though I think it's meant in the 'thumbs up' sense):
The internal candidate was Louisa Compton of Victoria Derbyshire and Newsbeat it would have been nurses pay and preferred pronouns every night had she got the gig. Congratulations 
Ms. Compton herself is now leaving for Channel 4.

That said, External Esm, before going to Sky, was a Newsnight producer, so she isn't entirely new to the BBC - or to this particular BBC programme.

It has to be said though, however.....(Ed - Does it? Really?),.....that Newsnight presently isn't that far from being "nurses pay and preferred pronouns every night" already.

This past week alone saw Monday's edition lead with a major item on police stop and search and its effects on young black men; a feature on Tuesday about social mobility and education; a section on Wednesday about gender and science; a piece on a worthy-sounding dance event (xenophobia, multiculturalism, how Brexit is building walls) on Thursday; and the issue of a universal basic income (as backed by Ed Miliband) on Friday. 

You can take the ex-Guardian deputy editor out of the programme but you can't take the Guardian-like spirit out of it, it seems. 

Or can you? And, more importantly, can Esm? 

And, regardless of any of that, can she...


Open Thread "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

All tracks lead to a new open thread. 

A kind reader suggested this image for an open thread and provided me with the background to it:
This is a painting by Christopher Richard Wynne Nevinson The Soul of the Soulless City (New York - an Abstraction) 1920. An extract from the Tate write-up: New York - an Abstraction was painted in London after Nevinson's return from New York in 1919 and before his next visit in October 1920 for a second exhibition at Frederick Keppel & Co. The poor reception of this exhibition may have accelerated Nevinson's disaffection with the city. His growing embitterment is perhaps reflected by the change of title. Originally exhibited in 1920 at the Bourgeois Galleries, New York, as New York - an Abstraction, it was retitled The Soul of the Soulless City in the Faculty of Arts Exhibition, Grosvenor House, London, in 1925 probably at Nevinson's instigation. The new title may have been a reference to Karl Marx's comment that religion was the 'heart of a heartless world'.
Thanks for all of your comments.


On Closer Inspection, Debt of Bankrupt Spanish Construction Firm Grows Four-Fold "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

What happens if cases like this prove to be the rule rather than the exception?

Spain appears to have a brand-new Abengoa  the imploded energy giant whose fabulous accounting tricks pushed creditors into a black hole on its hands: Isolux was until recently a fairly large privately owned infrastructure company with operations spanning the globe.

When the group declared bankruptcy last July, its cash flow in Spain was barely enough to cover a months operating costs. The group had a a total workforce of 3,884 and 119 infrastructure projects under development of which 39 were still operational and the remaining 90 had been halted.

The company tried to reduce its debt addiction through agreements with investment funds but they fell through. It also made two attempts to go public, in Brazil and Spain. Both failed.

The bankruptcy proceedings affected seven subsidiaries. At the time, the company stated that it owed 405 million to suppliers, that its total financial debt including those companies not included under the Spanish Insolvency Act filing was 1.3 billion, of which 557 million was associated with project financing, and that the total deficit on the groups balance sheet was about 800 million.

Turns out, according to the bankruptcy receivers, the shortfall is actually 3.8 billion four-and-a-half times the companys original estimate and the groups total debt, at 5.7 billion, is over 4 billion more than the amount stated by the company 10 months ago

Bull "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Raging Bull

Someone has been making waves this week, and it would be remiss of a blog like this not to crack open the popcorn and chronicle it. So here goes...

Continuing his Ovid-like metamorphosis into a rampaging bull (or maybe even the Minotaur), Baron Adonis, of Camden Town in the London Borough of Camden has been charging at the BBC all week.

He began it by agreeing with a tweet which said that Today is "under Tory management" and "shamelessly pro-Brexit".

Then he continued with statements like, "The BBC largely created Farage" and "The BBC is substantially responsible for debasing political debate and analysis, which led to Brexit. And it is getting worse".

This led him into a Twitter confrontation with Nick Robinson and Gary Lineker:
Andrew Adonis: The BBC is now performing so badly at impartial and fearless news, & the quality of Netflix etc now so much better at drama, I am wondering for the first time in my life whether we couldnt do better. Sky can keep sport! BBC on ropes. Sport largely gone to Sky. Quality drama gone to Netflix. BBC news increasingly Brexit, weak & simply Govt press releases. If Netflix set up a sharp, balanced News service, what would be left besides local radio, a desert island & a few good foreign correspondents?
Gary Lineker: What a load of complete and utter tosh.
Andrew Adonis: The BBCs most highly paid presenter?

LE PARISIEN Varoufakis : Macron est excellent sur la forme, mais dcevant sur le fond "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Lex-ministre grec des Finances veut lutter contre la pauvret de faon concerte en Europe.

Lancien ministre grec des Finances, Yanis Varoufakis, fait le tour de lEurope la recherche dallis pour proposer un programme de gauche aux lections europennes de 2019.

Vous voulez avoir des listes avec un label commun dans tous les pays pour les lections europennes de 2019 ?

Yanis Varoufakis. Nous sommes face une crise paneuropenne, qui est la mme dans tous les pays. Crise de la dette publique, du crdit bancaire et un niveau trs bas dinvestissement. Cela provoque laugmentation de la pauvret et de lexclusion, en France comme en Grce, en Espagne ou ailleurs.

Que proposez-vous ?

Il faut sattaquer au problme de faon commune, concerte. Ce que na jamais fait lEurope. Les lections de 2019 sont une occasion splendide de proposer tous les Europens un programme commun en matire sociale et conomique.

Un seul et mme programme pour les listes de chaque pays ?

Absolument. En France vous recevrez notre manifeste : ce sera le mme en Slovnie, en Grce, en Allemagne Il prsentera un ensemble politique cohrent de ce que nous voulons faire pour lEurope dans sa totalit. Mais ct de ce programme commun, il y aura des mesures spcifiques pour chaque pays.

Mais en France la situation semble samliorer : a ne contredit pas votre projet ?

Ce nest quune gurison passagre. Cela ne suffit pas rendre la France une croissance durable. Cest dailleurs pourquoi le prsident Macron propose une rforme de la zone euro, avec un budget commun. Mais ses propositions ont dj t rejetes par Berlin.

La batalla de Varoufakis contra el establishment europeo es el libro del ao Review of Adults in the Room (Spanish edition) in El Confidencial, by RAMN GONZLEZ FRRIZ "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

El libro de memorias de Yanis Varoufakis sobre sus poco ms de cinco meses como ministro de Finanzas griego, Comportarse como adultos. Mi batalla contra el establishment europeo, (Deusto) es, probablemente, el libro del ao.

Y lo es por muchas razones: su narracin de las maratonianas reuniones del Eurogrupo sobre la posible reestructuracin de la deuda griega y los paquetes de ayuda constituye una mirada nica a unas negociaciones que normalmente estn vedadas a los ciudadanos (Varoufakis grababa de manera oculta las conversaciones y las transcribe en el libro). Su retrato de personajes con los que tuvo un trato casi cotidiano, como Merkel, el ministro de Finanzas alemn, Schuble, la presidenta del FMI, Lagarde, o el presidente del Eurogrupo, Dijsselbloem, es literariamente valioso y humanamente brutal(Varoufakis se opona a los tres primeros, pero muestra por ellos un gran respeto intelectual; al ltimo lo detesta con todas sus fuerzas, y lo deja bien claro). Y su relato del grado de descoordinacin e improvisacin del Gobierno griego pone los pelos de punta.

Pero lo ms interesante, a pesar de estos precedentes, es la psicologa del propio Varoufakis. Cuando en enero de 2015 es nombrado por Tsipras, el nuevo primer ministro de Syriza, llega a un ministerio desarbolado, donde su predecesor se ha llevado todos los papeles relevantes y a duras penas consigue que alguien le d la clave del wifi (porque Varoufakis decide que trabajar con su porttil personal, no con el viejo PC de la Administracin pblica). A partir de entonces se pone a trabajar, y lo har armado con una arrogancia intelectual que a veces resulta difcil de creer y con un gran patriotismo contraintuitivo que le lleva a creer que lo mejor que puede pasarle a Grecia es quebrar, y luchar por lo tanto para que eso suceda.



Review of French edition of Adults in the Room in LE GRAND CONTINENT "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Nous allons, en mme temps que le possesseur dargent et le possesseur de force de travail, quitter cette sphre bruyante o tout se passe la surface et aux regards de tous, pour les suivre tous deux dans le laboratoire secret de la production, sur le seuil duquel il est crit : no admittance except on business.

Que celui-ci savre tre lun des crits sur lEurope les plus convaincants des dernires annes lest encore davantage. Conversations entre adultes : Dans les coulisses secrtes de lEurope (d. Les Liens qui Librent, 2017) est un livre aux multiples visages : trait de psychologie des lites europennes, manuel de dfense contre les idologies contemporaines et rcit minutieux dune crise infiniment complexe, il est surtout et avant tout un plaidoyer mticuleux et argument pour une nouvelle Europe, dont il dessine en creux les principes essentiels.

Le livre de Ynis Varoufkis est dabord le rcit autobiographique dune crise vcue de lintrieure. N en 1961 de parents hostiles au rgime des colonels, Varoufkis fait ses tudes en Angleterre, o il obtient en 1987 un doctorat dconomie. Sa carrire acadmique lamne enseigner Essex, en Australie ainsi quaux tats-Unis. Ses crits critiques, linstar de sa clbre Modeste Proposition pour rsoudre la crise de la zone euro (2011), commencent le faire connatre pendant la crise des conomies europennes.

The BBC joins the usual suspects "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

The anti-Daily Mail campaign group Stop Funding (Free Speech) Hate has scored another victory with (Centre Parks) Center Parcs withdrawing its advertising from the hated newspaper after Richard Littlejohn published an article there expressing a widely-held, socially-conservative view on the family that children benefit most from being raised by a man and woman. Naturally, the usual suspects went into overdrive in response. 

The BBC News website has the story among its main headlines this morning, unlike Sky News or ITV News. 

The BBC's report about it reads as being unsympathetic towards Richard Littlejohn, calling him "Littlejohn" twice and failing - unlike, say, The Times - to quote the Daily Mail's response. 

The Mail rightly says that the article is not homophobic and that it's a balanced opinion piece (which it is). 

Why doesn't the BBC give the Mail's response?


Taking flight "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Is it a 'good news story for the BBC' or a 'bad news story for the BBC' that Quentin Letts of The Daily Mail has fled BBC Radio's 4 Today for BBC Radio 3's Breakfast? Or does the 'good news for the BBC' balance out the 'bad news for the BBC' here? After all, Quentin may be fed up with Today but, instead of fleeing the BBC altogether, has merely taken refuge with yet another part of the BBC, and now feels very happy there?

Quentin's piece in the Mail, which I learned about via Alan at Biased-BBC, struck a strong chord with me because I've also recently stopped listening to Radio 4 whilst driving to and from work and switched to Radio 3 instead - and, like Quentin, I've felt much the better for it.

In fact, instead of blogging about BBC bias, I've spent what little time I've not been at work this week catching up with Radio 3's Breakfast (and other BBC Radio 3 programmes) on the iPlayer, playing the game of clicking on each piece and trying to guess what it is. And, like Quentin, I've found gem after gem after gem after gem. And, also like Quentin, I've especially enjoyed Georgia Mann's presentation (though I'm not sure what Canada's answer to Lord Adonis, Justin Trudeau, would make of her surname, especially if he merely heard it spoken. Would he be reaching for the smelling salts?).

Chronic treatment with fluoride affects the jejunum: insights from proteomics and enteric innervation analysis "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Gastrointestinal symptoms are the first signs of fluoride (F) toxicity. In the present study, the jejunum of rats chronically exposed to F was evaluated by proteomics, as well as by morphological analysis. Wistarrats received water containing 0, 10 or 50 mgF/L during 30 days. HuC/D, neuronal Nitric Oxide (nNOS), Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide (VIP), Calcitonin Gene Related Peptide (CGRP), and Substance P (SP) were detected in the myenteric plexus of the jejunum by immunofluorescence. The density of nNOS-IR neurons was significantly decreased (compared to both control and 10mgF/L groups), while the VIP-IR varicosities were significantly increased (compared to control) in the group treated with the highest F concentration. Significant morphological changes were seen observed in the density of HUC/D-IR neurons and in the area of SP-IR varicosities for F-treated groups compared to control. Changes in the abundance of various proteins correlated with relevant biological processes, such as protein synthesis, glucose homeostasis and energy metabolism were revealed by proteomics........

In conclusion, chronic exposure to F, especially to the highest concentration evaluated, increased the thickness of the tunica muscularis and altered the pattern of protein expression. Extensive downregulation of several isoforms of histones might have contributed to the alterations found in the morphology of enteric neurons in response to F exposure. Additionally, changes in proteins involved in energy metabolism indicate a shift from aerobic to anaerobic metabolism upon exposure to the highest F concentration. These findings provide new insights into the mechanisms involved in F toxicity in the intestine.

Firmly in 'you couldn't make it up' territory...

A lead story on the BBC News website tonight, though slipping down the rankings gradually as the evening progresses (perhaps, as reality dawns on BBC journalists?), is:

Hilariously, the Daily Mail (of all media sites) went one step further than the BBC (and, as far as I can see, anyone else) by employing asterisks to 'disguise' the offending word (and got roundly mocked in 'the comments' for so doing):

Berlin: We are all terrorists solidarity with anarchist prisoners in Russia "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

received on 15.02.18

From Rigaer Street, we send signs of solidarity and rage to anarchist prisoners in Russia, responding to the call from Russia for International Days of Solidarity with Russian Anarchist Political Prisoners.

These days we heard from the arrests of antifascists and anarchists in Russia. Already before, in the months of October and November 2017, in the city of Penza, six people got arrested and brutally tortured by the federal secret service FSB. In January this year, in the city of St. Petersburg, a second wave of arrests followed with two persons first being kidnapped by the FSB for one day and only the day after being officially registered in remand prison. The secret services offensive, led by Putins regime, was accompanied by house raids in different cities of the country. As a reason for the repression the FSB constructed an anarchist terrorist group, named Net, planning a series of attacks on the presidential elections in March 2018 as well as on the World Cup in June / July 2018 in Russia leading to armed insurrection and which is supposed to exist in several cities of Russia and Belarus. There is no evidence proofing the real existence of the group. The only evidences used are the statements of the arrested, which the FSB extorted from the prisoners using torture and the threat of further acts of torture. In Penza, the group got constructed by the statements of the first arrested person. The link between the members of the group is having played airsoft games together. Except of this first person, who got released beginning of the year into house arrest, all the others are still kept in the remand prison.

The experiences of intimidation and physical violence in the remand prison which the prisoners were subjected to, reveal the cruelty of the state apparatus. While democracy in Germany is still trying to veil the brutality of state power, the accounts from Russia affirm us, that the watchdogs of the system the wretched trash of the executive are capable of maintaining their authority only by the threat and implementation of physical violence.

Repression is meant to discourage us, to defeat movements and strain us individually into the controlled system or even destroy us. Its anything but easy to not feel powerless, to not...


The Cowards Way: Israels War On the Young "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz reports how a 14-year-old epileptic Palestinian girl was arrested as an illegal alien in East Jerusalem (Palestinian territory, as everyone knows), her cellular telephone confiscated and a lawyer from the Public Defenders Office appointed to represent her. She was released on bail and taken to the Gaza Strip because it was listed in Israeli records as her fathers place of residence. She told officials at the Erez checkpoint on the Gaza border that she didnt live in Gaza but in the West Bank.

The Jerusalem Magistrates Court ordered her release on bail after her uncle paid 1,500 shekels. The authorities checked their records and found she was registered as a Gaza resident, although her mother is registered as a West Bank resident. Her father, on the other hand, is registered as a Gaza resident and is classified as an illegal alien in the West Bank because he didnt receive an exit permit from the Strip, which he left in 2000. This administrative muddle, which is deliberate and widespread, hardly makes for happy family life in the illegally occupied territories.

Representatives of the HaMoked Center for the Defense of the Individual, who assisted the girls family, said she had never been to Gaza. Nonetheless, Civil Administration officers instructed the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) to pack the girl off to Gaza despite her protests. Only after being deposited in Gaza did she get her phone back.

A HaMoked lawyer said: With obtuseness that cannot be justified, nobody bothered to tell the minor where she was or made sure the family knew of her release, as is required in view of her age.

The Guardian reports that, according to HaMoked, 27 Palestinians living in the Israeli-occupied West Bank were forcibly sent to Gaza last year condemned to be shredded, incinerated or at least deeply traumatised the next time Israel war-tests its weaponry...

That which appears as harsh political polarity within the Jewish world is more than often a mere camouflage.

In The Wandering Who I argue that Jews appear to disagree on many things but rather often they agree on the most important things. I contend that that which appears as harsh political polarity within the Jewish world is more than often a mere camouflage.

Though it is clear that Jewish hawks and Zionists are collaborating enthusiastically with the so-called progressives only rarely do we manage to find evidence of such teamwork. Ahead of the American election we, for instance, were shocked to learn that the so-called solidarity activist Max Blumenthal fabricated a story on the 2012 Benghazi attack on the pages of the Guardian in order to divert attention away from Secretary of State Hillary Clintons blunders in Libya at the time that his papa Sidney Blumenthal was financially invested in reconstruction and regime change in Libya. Hillary Clinton was delighted by Maxs spin. She wrote to Sidney your son is a Mitzvah.

USA - Should Springfield fluoridate its drinking water? "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Springfield city commissioners could resume discussion next month, health commissioner says.
Posted: 7:00 a.m. Thursday, February 15, 2018

Clark County ranks among the worst in Ohio for childrens dental health, but the Springfield community remains divided over whether it should fluoridate its drinking water to address it.

Clark County health leaders and local dentists believe adding fluoride to the public water supply will reduce dental decay but a vocal group of residents believe it will be harmful to the community......................
......Despite more than 70 years of fluoridated water in some areas and more than 60 years of using fluoride toothpaste, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders proposed a bill to increase dental care throughout the United States in 2015, the e-mail said.
People are being overexposed to fluoride, said Dr. Bill Osmunson, a Bellevue, Wash.-based dentist who serves as director of the Fluoride Action Network. About 60 percent of adolescents are showing fluoride overdose symptoms, such as discolored teeth, he said.

Its not time to add more, Osmunson said. We need to be cutting back on the amount of fluoride. We need to find out why children are getting so much fluoride.

About 10 percent of people are drinking too much fluoridated water, he said. Hes also concerned that infants who are fed formula with fluoridated water are getting more than 200 times the recommended dosage.

Were giving way too much to infants during the development of their brain, their thyroid and their bones, he said.

Osmunson promoted fluoride for about 25 years after dental school, but he said research shows fluoride doesnt do any good its actually harmful if you get too much.

Financial Insiders Contemplate Imminent 2018 US Stock Market Crash of up to 50% "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Coming dramatic decline of US stock prices would trigger global recession, finds grim forecast to be explored at roundtable hosted by British financial services think-tank.

By Nafeez Ahmed and cross-posted from Insurge Intelligence

A new analysis published on the website of a London-based think-tank, funded by the worlds biggest banking and financial services institutions, warns that the US stock market is on the brink of an imminent crash that could trigger another global recession.

The document by a senior US economist and former Houblon-Norman Fellow at the Bank of England is published on the website of the Centre for the Study of Financial Innovation (CSFI), which runs around 100 roundtable events a year involving financial services insiders from the UK and beyond.

The document forecasts that in 2018, US stock prices are likely to plummet by as much as forty to fifty percentcompared to the less than five percent plunge in early February. The document was published weeks before the recent stock market volatility.

The warning of a forty to fifty percent drop points to the prospect of a global financial crash worse than the 2008 banking collapse.

It comes at a time when the Federal Reserve, Bank of England and other authorities are looking to tighten up their cheap money policies, as economic growth is at its highest levels since the 2008 slump.

The new analysis is an open letter by US economist Robert Aliber, Professor Emeritus at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, a world renowned authority in identifying the source of shocks behind over forty banking crises that have occurred since the 1970s.

The open letter, dated January 21st 2018, is published on CSFIs website at this link, and mentioned in an announcement of a forthcoming breakfast conversation with Professor Aliber in late February.

Can New NAFTA End Systematic Wage Repression in Mexico? "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

The entrenched system works to the detriment of the overall economy.

Chronic low salaries in Mexico have become a big bone of contention in the ongoing renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). In a talk at the University of Chicago last week, Canadian premier Justin Trudeau reiterated that if the labor standards of NAFTA were improved, companies would have fewer incentives to move factories to Mexico for cheap labor while Mexican workers would get a better deal. But thats the last thing the Mexican government and global manufacturers with operations in Mexico seem to want.

Moodys offered a bleak prognosis for Mexicos low-cost regime. Mexico has not attained the stellar growth rates that were anticipated from liberalizing its economy, and wage and productivity gaps with the US have widened rather than shrunk, it said in a report last August. NAFTA has not remedied Mexicos low growth, low productivity and low wages, it said:

If Mexicos productivity continues to stagnate, the income gap with the US will widen over time, instead of converging. Mexicos low productivity, low wages and low growth over the last three decades, even outside periods of economic crisis or recession, are not being remedied by the current export-focused growth model reliant on access to the US market through NAFTA. Mexico has maintained its comparative advantage through negative real wage growth, at the expense of income levels. As a result, instead of converging through trade, wage and productivity gaps with the US have widened.

Mexican assembly line workers only receive about one-eighth of what workers doing the same job north of the border earn. This is a feature, not a bug, of Mexicos export-driven economy

Zaterdag 10 februari 2018 hebben wij, een groep ongedocumenteerde (dus NIET uitgeprocedeerde of illegale) vluchtelingen van het collectief Wij Zijn Hier, afkomstig uit voornamelijk West-Afrika ervoor gekozen om onze intrek te nemen in een leegstaand pand op Rapenburg 31-33 te Amsterdam. Dit pand staat al meer dan zes maanden leeg.

Het vluchtelingencollectief Wij Zijn Hier strijdt al ruim vijf jaar voor een normaal leven van vluchtelingen, evenredig aan dat van alle burgers. Daarnaast roept het collectief op tot erkenning van het zogenaamde asielgat wat inhoudt dat vluchtelingen na afwijzing van hun asielaanvraag niet in Nederland mogen blijven, maar ook niet teruggestuurd kunnen worden naar het land van herkomst. Dit kan onder andere zijn omdat het land van herkomst hier niet aan mee wil werken of het land te gevaarlijk is om naar teruggestuurd te worden. Ook dreigen sommigen teruggestuurd te worden naar Itali, waar men als eerste Europa binnen kwam. Daar komen mensen dan wederom op straat te staan, omdat Italie de vluchtelingenstroom totaal niet aan kan. Velen van ons werken aan een (hernieuwde) asielaanvraag. De voorwaarden die hiervoor gesteld worden zijn niet eenvoudig en het is niet makkelijk de IND alsnog te overtuigen met nieuw bewijsmateriaal, maar het lukt wel! Van het Wij Zijn Hier collectief hebben inmiddels ruim 100 personen alsnog een verblijfsvergunning gekregen.

Echter, totdat we een nieuwe procedure kunnen starten of een vergunning hebben gekregen, kunnen we geen aanspraak maken op voorzieningen om in ons primaire levensonderhoud te voorzien. De Gemeente Amsterdam blijft verwijzen naar de landelijke overheid en zo is er nog steeds geen wezenlijke oplossing gerealiseerd voor onze groep. Maar wij zijn hier en we hebben een plek nodig om te kunnen leven. Op 21 maart zijn de gemeenteraadsverkiezingen. Wij hopen dat veel Amsterdammers kiezen voor een menswaardig bestaan voor alle Amsterdammers.

De BBB zit vol en hanteert sinds kort strengere toelatingscriteria waardoor er nog meer druk op onze groep is komen te staan doordat de geweigerde mensen toch ergens moeten slapen. Zowel de BBB als de Winteropvang, vormen slechts een sobere nacht...
