London’s black cabs are a source of fascination for France’s media. The news that electric versions are now running was good for a long feature on national TV news, and a full-page feature in Les Echos, France’s main financial daily, which visited the new factory in Coventry which makes them.

Catholic Archbishop Says Domestic Violence is “Caused by Women Not Obeying Men”

Braulio Rodriguez told his congregation in Toledo, Spain, that wives could also escape being physically abused by not asking their husbands for a divorce

The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Toledo, Braulio Rodriguez, told his congregation that wives could avoid being hit by doing what they are told.

Women could also escape being physically abused by not asking their husbands for a divorce , Rodriguez said.

He told churchgoers in his sermon: “The majority of cases of domestic violence happen because the woman’s partner does not accept them, or rejects them for not accepting their demands.

MET POLICE ANNOUNCE CRACKDOWN ON MOPED CRIME

Police across London say they’re going to target criminals on mopeds “at every opportunity.”

The head of the Met’s Operation Venice Team says they will be pursued even when they ride dangerously and discard their helmets.

Moped crime has been in the headlines after a spike in the last few years.

But police say there’s been a large reduction with 44% fewer moped crimes January 2018 to October 2018 than the same 10 months of 2017.

There was also a 38% drop in moped thefts in the same period.

Police say moped crime can happen at any time of the day or night. Victims are often targeted as they come out of tube stations or at transport hubs. Thieves also snatch handbags, high-value watches, and other items.

But police are using a range of tactics across Greater London to tackle offenders, including DNA forensic tagging and the use of automatic tyre deflation devices.

Commander Amanda Pearson said: “There is a perception that if you remove your helmet or fail to stop for police when requested to do so we will not take any further course of action. This is untrue.

“The public quite rightly expects us to intervene to keep London safe. Our highly trained police drivers weigh up the risks and decide upon the most appropriate tactics in those circumstances.

“Offenders on mopeds and motorcycles who attempt to evade the police are making a choice that puts themselves and others at risk.

“So our message is clear: we can, we will and we do target those involved in moped and motorcycle crime at every opportunity.”
