The defiant message comes despite the Home Office targeting migrants with Facebook ads pleading with them not to make the journey.
One 16-year-old boy from Afghanistan said: “I need to go to the UK. I am ready for anything to try and get there.”

WASHINGTON — Congress overwhelmingly passed emergency legislation Thursday that would bolster security at the Capitol, repay outstanding debts from the violent Jan. 6 insurrection and increase the number of visas for allies who worked alongside Americans in the Afghanistan war.
The $2.1 billion bill now goes to President Joe Biden for his signature. The Senate approved the legislation early Thursday afternoon, 98-0, and the House passed it immediately afterward, 416-11.
Senators struck a bipartisan agreement on the legislation this week, two months after the House had passed a bill that would have provided around twice as much for Capitol security. But House leaders said they would back the Senate version anyway, arguing the money is urgently needed for the Capitol Police and for the translators and others who worked closely with U.S. government troops and civilians in Afghanistan.

A Taliban spokesman confirmed Thursday that Taliban thugs murdered comedian Nazar Mohammad in southern Afghanistan shortly after a video went viral that showed Mohammad being abducted and beaten.
Mohammad, who has also worked as a police officer in Kandahar, posted satirical videos online under the name Khasha Zawaan. He was noted for his self-deprecating sense of humor and riffing on topics suggested to him by fans.
Goons dragged Mohammad from his home last week, shoved him in a car, and slapped him when he tried to make a joke, recording all of the exchange uploading it to the Internet:

China is rapidly building new nuclear-missile silos


O
N A HOT and sticky day in the northern city of Tianjin, America and China held their highest-level meeting on Chinese soil since Joe Biden was sworn in as America’s president in January. But the encounter on July 26th between Wendy Sherman, America’s deputy secretary of state, and counterparts from China’s foreign ministry failed to clear the air. Instead, it merely deepened the gloom that hangs over the world’s most critical great-power relationship.

According to an American spokesman, Ms Sherman promised “stiff competition” with China and raised its “ongoing genocide” in the far-western region of Xinjiang, among other sore issues. She suggested co-operation on tackling problems such as climate change, narcotics and Afghanistan. But that olive branch was snapped by Xie Feng, a deputy foreign minister, who said relations were at a “stalemate” and thundered that America’s aim was to “bring China down”. His boss, Wang Yi, told America to choose between improving ties or “clashes and confrontation”.

Правительство теряет поддержку и сверху, и снизу - эксперты


Новое правительство Казахстана. Фото: tengrinews.kz
ОФ «Стратегия» представил рейтинг политиков и управленцев центрального уровня за 2 квартал 2021 года.
Оценки выставляли эксперты по трем критериям:
авторитетность как личности
перспективность как политика
Оценка производится по шкале от 1 до 7 баллов, где 1 – самый низкий показатель характеристики, а 7 – наивысший.
Новые старые лица
Первая «десятка» обновилась почти наполовину. После трехмесячного отсутствия вернулись руководитель Администрации Президента Ерлан Кошанов и помощник президента, секретарь Совета безопасности Асет Исекешев. Попечитель «Назарбаев Фонда» Болат Утемуратов в топ-10 отсутствовал год. Также в первую группу вошел руководитель Канцелярии Елбасы Махмуд Касымбеков.
Вылетел из десятки лидеров заместитель председателя партии Nur Otan Бауыржан Байбек. Эксперты утверждают, что «перезагрузка партии провалилась». Однако Байбек имеет сравнительно высокий показатель перспективности (4,45 балла; 6-е место в рейтинге перспективности).
Премьер-министр Аскар Мамин только на 12-м месте.
— Эксперты отмечают, что и сам Мамин «как ПМ неэффективный менеджер и не имеет масштабного мышления», и его «правительство теряет поддержку и сверху, и снизу», — пишут социологи.
Председатель мажилиса Нурлан Нигматулин улучшил оценки по сравнению с первым кварталом, но все-таки уступил вторую позицию председателю КНБ Кариму Масимову.
Существенно улучшили свое положение в верхней половине рейтинга (но не в топ-10) сразу несколько политиков. Председатель Верховного суда Жакип Асанов поднялся сразу на 20 позиций и занял 14 место в общем рейтинге.
— К числу управленцев с высокой динамикой показателей следует отнести Алика Айдарбаева, который сумел выбраться из группы «середнячков» и остановился в шаге от ТОП-15. Рост показателя председателя правления НК «КазМунайГаз» эксперты объясняют тем, что «с помощью Даурена Карабаева и Жакыпа Марабаева он постепенно вытаскивает компанию из дебрей непрофильных проектов», — пишут авторы рейтинга.
За эффективность никому не дали даже 5 баллов из 7
Авторитетность топ-политиков оценивается выше, чем другие аспекты. По результатам 2-го квартала 2021 года в первой десятке по параметру «авторитетность» лидирующие позиции остаются за Токаевым, Масимовым и Нигматулиным. Четвертым стал председатель НПП «Атамекен» Тимур Кулибаев.
По параметру «эффективность» пять баллов не смог набрать никто
Даже Токаев получил всего 4,91. Один из экспертов объяснил свою оценку «провисанием» ситуации в стране.
— Если в 2019 году условная «Библиотека» по фантомной привычке еще руководила процессами, то в 2020 году старая команда активно делегировала полномочия новой.
В 2021 году создается ощущение, что старая команда готова встать и уйти, а новая еще не готова,
— цитирует рейтинг его высказывание.
ТОП-10 по параметру «перспективность» также возглавляют Токаев и Нигматулин. На третье место поднялся спикер сената Маулен Ашимбаев, Масимов на четвертой позиции.
Рост перспективности показали министр образования и науки А. Аймагамбетов, а также Е. Кошанов, А. Исекешев и Б. Байбек.
Нужна ли информационная открытость?
В начале 2021 года социологи добавили для оценки управленцев параметр «информационная открытость». Однако быстро выяснилось, что
этот параметр влияет на итоговую оценку чрезмерно сильно и порой необоснованно
К тому же для того же председателя КНБ это просто лишнее. Поэтому при составлении рейтинга за второй квартал 2021 года этот фактор уже не учитывался. Но социологи рассмотрели его как независимый показатель.
Первая тройка — президент и председатели обеих палат парламента. Далее следуют А. Аймагамбетов, Б. Байбек и помощник президента Ерлан Карин.
— Кроме них, в ТОП-10 по информационной активности ожидаемо вошли первый заместитель руководителя Администрации Президента Даурен Абаев, министры цифрового развития, инноваций и аэрокосмической промышленности Багдат Мусин, информации и общественного развития — Аида Балаева, здравоохранения — Алексей Цой, — отметили авторы.
