The latest example is You Tube’s compliance with a request from the British government to censor footage of the British Constitution Group’s Lawful Rebellion protest, during which they attempted to civilly arrest Judge Michael Peake at Birkenhead county court.

What is coaching - The Coaching & Mentoring Network What are Coaching and Mentoring? Both coaching and mentoring are processes that enable both individual and corporate clients to achieve their full potential.
