The Guardian view on refurbishing parliament: get a move on | Editorial

Delay only increases the cost and our political culture would benefit from a change of sceneTo describe parliament as a decaying institution, crawling with vermin, would be unjust as metaphor. As a literal account of the state of the building, it is accurate. The Palace of Westminster is in an advanced state of physical degradation, infested with mice and in need of an upgrade. Faulty wiring, antiquated plumbing and other structural inadequacies make it unsafe as a workplace – not just for MPs but also security officers, clerks and administrative staff. The most decrepit Victorian sections need 24-hour patrols by fire marshals.A cross-party restoration and renewal committee declared last year that the most effective remedy would be a massive refurbishment, lasting up to six years, during which period parliament could sit elsewhere. That conclusion echoed advice by independent consultants the previous year that vacating the building, costly though it might be, would be cheaper and more efficient than an ongoing saga of piecemeal repairs.

The Guardian view on ‘the mutineers’: protecting parliament | Editorial
They are presented as a threat to democracy. But all MPs who challenge the government play a part in strengthening it The “mutineers”, the 15 Conservative MPs pictured on the front of Wednesday’s Daily Telegraph, looked more like new members of a golf club than a clique determined to undermine the will of the people. But this was not meant as a joke, and it had consequences that were not in the least amusing. The 15, all of them potential rebels against the government’s decision to write the EU exit date on to the face of the withdrawal
The Guardian view on Theresa May: struggling to survive | Editorial
The prime minister’s authority is broken. Yet the Tory party has little confidence that anyone else would do the job better Tory party politics, says a leftwing character in James Graham’s new West End play, Labour of Love , consist largely of “posh squirrels fighting in a bag”. This week, the Conservatives look all set to provide spectacular proof of Graham’s character’s scathing comment. Theresa May has come to the party’s conference in Manchester with her authority broken. In June she squandered her majority in an election she
The Guardian view on the Reformation: justification through faith | Editorial
Luther’s 95 Theses were supposedly nailed to a church door in Wittenberg 500 years ago on Tuesday. It is impossible to read Luther, for all his coarse vitality, as an apostle of common sense. The reformation was an argument within western Christianity, not a rejection of all that had gone before.
The Guardian view on translation: an interpretative and creative act | Editorial
Translation is always an interpretation: an act of creation that also, paradoxically, demands a fierce loyalty to the original text. Translators are our guides into other times and territories. The sonnet was a southern European form brought to England through Thomas Wyatt’s translations of Petrarch.

The Guardian view on opera: still powerful, still relevant | Editorial
The V&A’s new exhibition, the first to be shown in its elegant, recently completed extension by architect Amanda Levete, is devoted to the gloriously extreme world of opera. The show, a collaboration with the Royal Opera House, tells a story that begins with the birth pangs of the artform amid the new sounds of Monteverdi’s Coronation of Poppaea in Venice in 1643, continues with the Handel-obsessed London of the early decades of the 18th century, and passes on to the shock of the premiere of The Marriage of Figaro in 1786, with its dangerou
The Guardian view on the UK’s next census: counting what counts | Editorial
The Office for National Statistics is trying to find an accurate way of measuring the number of trans Britons. It’s harder than it looks Britons have been describing themselves more or less honestly to government at 10-year intervals since 1801, producing each decade a mirror that reflects back the changing world: more populous, healthier, more diverse and (nowadays) getting older. Each time, a few people declare themselves conscientious objectors, and some
The Guardian view on universal credit: brake, don’t accelerate | Editorial
The government plans to speed up the rollout of its welfare reform. But what matters is the delay in paying people who desperately need it Universal Credit, once trailed as the Conservatives’ flagship benefit reform, has staggered from crisis to crisis since its inception seven years ago. On Thursday a letter from a dozen Tory backbenchers to the work and pensions secretary, David Gauke, calling for a pause was leaked to the Daily Telegraph. Later, the former government adviser Dame Louise Casey added her voice, warning that to go ahead with
The Guardian view on food standards: the cost of competition | Editorial
Look away now: an investigation into one food processor might put you off your next chicken meal For almost every meat eater, chicken is the great standby. Every day, more than 2 million birds are consumed: spiced up as drumsticks or curry-sauced thighs or succulently ham-wrapped breasts. But there is perhaps no other area of food production where what we eat has become so distant from what happens to it on the way to the plate. It is not a process for the faint-hearted: and as an investigation by the Guardian and ITV has found , it can also br
The Guardian view on Brexit and the Bank: the challenge of populism | Editorial
It is 20 years since the Bank of England gained independence. It may not survive the nationalist pressures of leaving the EU Bank of England independence, announced just five days after Labour’s 1997 landslide victory, was a tightly kept secret of the kind that Gordon Brown made his trademark. Yet it was almost at once accepted as the last, critical piece of a framework to protect the UK economy from the inflationary tendencies of weak governments on a par with joining the European Community 25 years previously. Today, at a conference marking
The Guardian view on North Korea and the US: shouting into the wind | Editorial
The insults traded between Washington and Pyongyang tend to induce despair or laughter. We need to take them more seriously The escalating rhetoric of both North Korea and the US president is prone to polarise its audience, resulting in two contradictory and equally imprudent strains of reaction. The first is panic. As the Trumpian tweets and blasts of Pyongyang propaganda grow more extreme, the spectre of war coalesces in the public mind. But it is still a spectre, and the most likely outcome is that the immediate crisis will pass as

If you move out at 17 can your guardian do anything? They can look for you and file a missing persons file. At seventeen you are still under their constraint. They can punish you and such. If the person is seventeen their best option is to wait till they turn eighteen. If you absolutely cannot wait, try to move in with a relative for a while and tell them the situation.

Can a minor move out if their parent or guardian physically abuses them? This is not legal advice and should not be relied upon as such.

SOME states allow minors to become emancipated under specific circumstances, but this is not just a matter of filling out some paperwork. A minor is the responsibility of their parents until such time as they reach the age of majority or are legally eman

How old do you have to be as a female to legally move out of your guardian's house in Georgia? The legal age of majority for the state is 18. This age may not apply in a situation which involves a legal guardian. Guardianship is granted through a court order, and the terms that are included in the order are the ones that apply and in some cases can take precedence over established laws. There are cases which require an order from the court mandating the person to be of legal age and to be released from guardianship regardless if said person has reached the state's legal age of majority.
