Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I'm staying in London for a few weeks. I'm always optimistic for a Tory defeat until the bitter end.

Some close friend I'm helping out who is relocating, looking for an apartment and a school. Once again London surprises me in very conservative and even archaic systems.

As a career woman in financials she has done very well. However as a single mom, Islamic faith and caring for a grammarschool aged daughter she finds many obstacles. In choice of housing outright discrimination and in choice of a school the many parochial schools run by the Anglican Church.

Geez, in The Netherlands with all of its very own ills, many of these issues were overcome decades ago. I'm often puzzled by the inflexibility due to city ordinances and regulations. Perhaps I just want to get matters done quickly ... reminds me of London's former mayor and Brexit. Pretty archaic, unruly and running a demolition policy to stay in power not caring for the many but just the few.

Prime minister refused to apologise for misogynist and sexist comments he made about single mothers and the character of their children ... you are more likely to get mugged ‼️

What a Trump style a££hole 😎

In his 2006 book Have I Got Views for You, the prime minister said mums were "socially gestapoed into the workplace" and it led to them raising "unloved and undisciplined children" more likely to commit crime.

No apology from the misogyst ... fits rightwing rhetoric of the white man supremacists. Great company Boris!
