AskTen - Ten things you may not have noticed last week!

  1. Whisper it, but Britain is doing well. In the recessions of the 1980s, 50% of unemployed Britons were jobless for more than a year; in this recession, the equivalent figure peaked at 36% and today is below 25%. In France it’s 44%; in Italy, 58%. Now that wages are rising again, Britain is well placed to make a solid recovery. There is at least some room for optimism beyond the gloom. The Times
     
  2. The EU budget. The European Commission has opened what is expected to be a long and arduous re-negotiation of the EU budget, unveiling plans for higher spending and controversial cuts to farming subsidies. Commission President Jean-Claude Junker has set out a financial blueprint of €1.279trn for 2021 to 2027. Politico says this “smashes through the previous budget cap of 1% of the bloc’s gross national income” and seeks to push overall spending to around 1.1% - even as the UK and its 65 million people make their Brexit. Daily Mail
     
  3. Facebook announces move into dating. Facebook has unveiled a dating service at its annual F8 developers conference in San Jose, California. Mark Zuckerberg said that the match-making feature would consider privacy issues and would launch "soon". He added: "There are 200m people on Facebook who list themselves as single." The social network’s founder admitted that 2018 has been an "intense year" for his firm. The Guardian
     
  4. No sex please, we're millennials. One in eight 26-year-olds are virgins, a significant rise from previous generations, for whom one in 20 was the norm. Psychoanalytic psychotherapist Susanna Abse said: "Millennials have been brought up in a culture of hypersexuality which has bred a fear of intimacy." Researchers have tracked 16,000 young people born in 1989-90 since they were 14. The Sunday Times
     
  5. Knife crime epidemic spreads to suburbs and shires. The UK’s knife crime outbreak has spread from the cities to the suburbs and shires. Analysis of government data shows that knife crime in Hertfordshire, Warwickshire, Cambridgeshire, Hampshire, Essex and Norfolk has almost doubled in three years. People are now more likely to be a victim of a knife attack in Bedfordshire than in Greater Manchester or Merseyside. The Observer
     
  6. Homeschooling in the UK on the rise. The number of children being homeschooled has risen by over 40% in three years. Some 48,000 children were being educated at home in 2016-17, up from 34,000 in 2014-15. The highest proportion is in the Isle of Wight, where one in 50 children are homeschooled. BBC
     
  7. A life less ordinary. 80% of British adults class themselves as “ordinary”; 15% do not; 5% are unsure. However, the proportion varies dramatically with age. Among 20- to 24-year-olds, 58% perceive themselves as ordinary; the proportion then rises steadily until it reaches 93% among 70- to 74-year-olds. In the 2017 general election, self-declared ordinary people were more likely than not-ordinary ones to have voted Conservative; the opposite was true for the Lib Dems. YouGov
     
  8. Adult drinking habits, by income. 79% of adults earning over £40K had an alcoholic drink last week, whereas only 46% of those earning less than £10K did. 22% of the highest earners binged on alcohol last week, whereas only 11% of the lowest earners did. Across the income spectrum, the more you earn, the more you drink. Office of National Statistics.
     
The bottom line. The government is planning to spend £1.2m on tackling homelessness. Since 2013, 318 people have died while sleeping rough or in temporary accommodation, says the Bureau of Investigative Journalism. The Independent
