Pentagon suggests ground troops may join Iraq fight

General Martin Dempsey.

Senior members of America's secret service have signalled they would consider sending ground troops to fight Islamic State (IS) if they think it is the right thing to do.

Army General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a Senate committee he would recommend sending American forces to join Kurdish and Iraqi soldiers.

“If we reach the point where I believe our advisers should accompany Iraqi troops on attacks against specific [IS] targets, I will recommend that to the president."

This come despite Obama's emphatic insistence he would not send ground troops to fight jihadi militants.

What is the Barnett formula?

Lord Barnett in 1976.

  • The Barnett formula is the agreed method used to distribute money raised by taxation to different countries within the United Kingdom.
  • It has been used to distribute British wealth across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland for 35 years and was conceived by Joel Barnett, now Lord Barnett, a Labour peer.
  • The amount granted under the Barnett formula is decided by which powers have been devolved to that country and its population.
  • Northern Ireland is biggest winner in terms of amount granted per citizen, then Scotland, followed by England and Wales.
  • Average spend per head is; Northern Ireland £10.9k , Scotland £10.1k, Wales £9.8k and England £8.5k.
  • Some politicians have called for the formula to be scrapped and allocate tax revenue according to the biggest need.
  • This originally began in the 1880s with the "Goschen Proportion" when the then Chancellor, Viscount Goschen was trying to buy off home rule in Ireland and Scotland.
  • The Barnett formula was meant to even out spending through a careful squeeze.
  • Mancunian Lord Barnett has gone on the record to say he feels to formula is outdated.

Almost a third of us have noisy neighbours

A survey has revealed that almost a third of people have had a problem with a nuisance neighbour in the past year.

The figures from Which? show that residents most complained about:

  • Voices and arguing (41%)
  • Loud music and noisy TVs (29%)
  • Doors slamming (27%)
  • People stomping around (23%)
  • Noise from pets (21%)

The organisation is launching a free guide to help people deal with a nuisance neighbour, offering advice such as keeping an incident diary, and resolving issues face to face.
