Tunisian thoughts

I arrived back from Tunisia last night and have been mulling over the experience today.The people I met there have left a deep impact on me.I was struck by their courage and dignity as they relayed tales of suffering under the disposed dictator Ben Ali. I heard stories of torture, of systemic rape against men and women, of people being imprisoned for handing out leaflets, for gathering in groups of more than two or just for calling a relative whose name was on a secret police list.

Salma Yaqoob says she is standing for election in Bradford West in bid to reverse 'years of neglect'
FORMER Respect leader Salma Yaqoob has said she is standing for election in Bradford West in a bid to reverse its “years of neglect”. Ms Yaqoob, who was born in Bradford but lives in Birmingham, yesterday released a statement, saying: “Bradford West is at a critical juncture at which it faces a choice between more of the same or lasting and positive change.“For too long, the constituency has been let down by Tory and Labour party neglect. Residents are fed up with the complacency of the local political establishment.“For years, education and training has been left to deteriorate. Unemployment is high and local businesses struggle to recruit talent. This is a fundamental failing of those in power who have allowed Bradford West to be left behind. This must be corrected.”Ms Yaqoob quit Respect in 2012 after distancing herself from controversial comments made by party colleague George Galloway about rape.She will enter an eight-way fight for the seat, currently held by Labour
