Why Greta Makes Adults Uncomfortable

  Why Greta Makes Adults Uncomfortable Especially in private, she sounds a lot like … a teenager. “We are not the ones who are responsible for this, but we are the ones who have to live with these consequences, and that is so incredibly unfair,” she said at one point.And this is the way to understand Thunberg that paints her as neither a saint nor a demon but that still captures her appeal.

Police in Conservative conference host city Manchester are investigating a banner calling for Tory deaths.

The Labour mayor of Greater Manchester has condemned the "unacceptable" sign appearing to call for the death of thousands of Tories as they arrived for their party conference in the city.

It was tweeted by a Conservative councillor, who was jogging when she spotted it on Sunday morning.

Two effigies were also seen hanging from the bottom of the banner, which read: "130,000 killed under Tory rule, time to level the playing field."

Mr Burnham said it was "completely unacceptable" and the banner along the Irwell River by Peel Park, Salford, has since been removed.

The Manchester Evening News reported that a local wing of the grassroots Labour movement Momentum tweeted its own picture of the banner, alongside the caption: "Good morning @Conservatives. Welcome to Manchester."

The tweet was later deleted.

Boris Johnson has played down calls for him to moderate his language, describing his use of "surrender act" to describe legislation designed to prevent a no-deal as a "legitimate" phrase.

One politician who has rowed back on some controversial language is Nigel Farage, whose vow to "take a knife" to civil servants after Brexit prompted a now dropped police investigation.

Following complaints about his speech at a rally in Newport, he admitted to Sky's Sophy Ridge on Sunday: "I should have said we'll take the axe to Whitehall - axe would have been a better term."
