UK Police Link Device Found in Glasgow With Explosive Devices Received in London

The UK Metropolitan Police Service confirmed that a device had been found at the University of Glasgow on Wednesday, adding that the law enforcement linked it with the three small improvised explosive devices received in London.

On Tuesday, small packaged had been received at three business addresses in London. Specialists subsequently said that they contained small improvised explosive devices. One of the packages was opened which resulted in a part of these package burning. One package was also received at the University of Glasgow on Wednesday. It was not opened an no one was wounded.

"Officers from the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command who are investigating three small improvised explosive devices received at addresses in London yesterday (5 March) have linked a similar-type device that was identified at the University of Glasgow today, 6 March," the Met Police said in a statement.

Britain Needs A Full Inquiry Into The Poison Of Islamophobia Inside The Conservative Party

On Tuesday, the Tory party suspended 14 party members for allegedly making anti-Muslim comments on social media. This should come as no surprise.

It’s further shocking evidence that the Tory party has a very deep problem with Islamophobia. The party has been in denial about the problem for years.

But let's try a mental experiment.

Revealed: A day after Corbyn said ISIS bride should be let back into UK... how Labour's John McDonnell once called for anyone who fought for Israel to be stripped of their British citizenship

John McDonnell argued Britons who fought for Israel against Palestine should face the threat of losing their citizenship in a letter that emerged today - 24 hours after Jeremy Corbyn said jihadi bride Shamima Begum should keep her passport.

The shadow chancellor wrote to then Home Secretary Theresa May in 2014 saying she should censure British citizens who served in the Israeli Defence Force (IDF) and mete out the same punishment given to those who joined ISIS.

Yesterday his party leader said Shamima Begum and her newborn baby should be allowed to return from Syria and given the 'support that she needs' by the authorities.

Yet Mr McDonnell argued the Government's policy to strip violent jihadis of their passports should be widened to those who went to fight for the Israeli Defence Force against the Palestinians in Gaza - with some critics calling it 'hypocrisy'.

Deal or no deal, here’s why Brexit cannot be stopped

The UK political commentariat are a lazy bunch. Brexit is one of their biggest topics in decades – a bonanza that any amateur can pitch in on – yet remarkably few have got to grips with the key texts. If they had, they would realise Brexit is at that stage of the chess game where the result is already a foregone conclusion. Brexit is going to happen.

Some more enlightened MPs saw this a while ago. Would Anna Soubry have resigned from the Conservative Party if she thought Remain or BRINO (Brexit In Name Only) were on the cards? Would Jeremy Corbyn offer a second referendum to his diehard Remainers if he thought there was any probability of Remain? You can hear the anguish of opportunists who placed their chips on defending BRINO from space as they realise they will end up on the wrong side of history.

Williamson declares military ready to help in knife crime crisis, prompting derision on social media

UK armed forces stand “ready to respond” to the current knife crime epidemic blighting the country, Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson has declared, leading to much mockery on social media.

Williamson made the remarks during a question-and-answer session on Tuesday night in which he insisted the Ministry of Defense is always available to assist Home Secretary Sajid Javid to “tackle this problem [knife crime].”

The intervention has prompted much derision on Twitter, with many questioning how military personnel could ever provide necessary support to a highly complex issue.

‘Racially profiled’ British student interrogated by Israeli embassy at UK campus

Israel’s Ambassador to the UK, Mark Regev, rose to notoriety with his ruthless and unapologetic defence of Israeli war-crimes in Gaza. His talent for suppressing truth and taking on the rising tide of anti-Israeli sentiments earned him a position in the UK, long seen by Tel Aviv as the global centre of pro-Palestinian activism. The Australian-born diplomat, who moved to Israel in 1982, places a premium on speaking at university campuses and has stoked controversy wherever he goes. The latest saw pro-Palestinian student activists being harassed and interrogated by his security staff who are accused of supressing free speech and behaving like thuggish enforcers.

The showdown between Regev’s security guards and British students took place at the University of Leicester last week. A group of student activists from the Palestine Society decided to exercise their democratic right to protest and express disdain over the university’s decision to host such a polarising figure.

UK Sells $445m Of Arms To Israel, Including Sniper Rifles

Britain has approved the sale of arms to Israel worth $445m since the 2014 Gaza war, including components for drones, combat aircraft and helicopters along with spare parts for sniper rifles, according to figures seen by Middle East Eye.

The government data will raise fresh concerns that British-made weapons are being used by the Israeli military in the Occupied Territories, amid fears that components in sniper rifles used to kill scores of Palestinian civilians in recent weeks could have been made in the UK.

Arms export licences to Israel soared to £216m, or $300m at current exchange rates, last year from £20m in the wake of the Gaza war, new Department for International Trade figures show.

They include a major £183m licence covering "technology for military radars", but ministers have also approved the sale for export of grenades, bombs, missiles, armoured vehicles, assault rifles, small arms ammunition, sniper rifles and components for sniper rifles.

'Get rid of all UK mosques': UK Conservatives suspend 14 members over Islamophobic posts

Fourteen members of the British Conservative Party were suspended on Tuesday for making a series of Islamophobic comments on social media.

The party's decision came after the Twitter account @matesjacob uncovered a series of Islamophobic, racist, and discriminatory comments made online on pages supporting the Tories.

Many of the comments had been found on a Facebook page supporting Jacob Rees-Mogg, the Conservative MP for North East Somerset, who is a high-profile supporter of Britain leaving the European Union.

The pro-Rees-Mogg Facebook page has more than 18,000 followers, while the Conservative Party has an estimated 100,000 members in the United Kingdom.

Fentanyl poisoned the Skripals – back to basics

Sadly our “intelligence” services limp on from one blunder to another. It could well be that Sergey Skripal with his contacts in Russia, if he still had any, fed Steele and Miller at Orbis Business Intelligence this nonsense. Unfortunately these blunders may be the reason that we will never hear from the Skripals again.

Ten days after the Skripals ingested fentanyl Stephen Davies wrote the following letter to the Times over that newspaper’s alarmist headline, a headline which was panicking people of Salisbury into thinking they may have been poisoned by a nerve-agent and thus adding unnecessary burdens on an already overworked NHS.

No deal better than uncertainty, says head of German industry

The head of the German federation of industries has claimed the British are “lost” and has thrown doubt on Berlin’s backing for a short Brexit extension, claiming an “economy can live better with bad conditions than with uncertainty”.

Dieter Kempf, the chairman of the Bundesverbandes der Deutschen Industrie, said the 100,000 companies he represents and their 8 million employees have prepared for a no-deal scenario in March, not in May.

Speaking in the wake of the British prime minister’s suggestion that the UK could request a two-month Brexit delay, Kempf told the Dutch newspaper Het Financieele Dagblad that he felt no relief at the apparent U-turn by Theresa May.

MPs Demand Britain Double Refugee Intake, Import Fivefold More From Africa

A cross-party committee of MPs has demanded Britain double the number of refugees imported directly from the third world, and to expand the working rights of asylum seekers.

In a report published Tuesday, the International Development Committee argued that both moves would see Britain set a good example, policy-wise, to governments in sub-Saharan Africa.

Chairman of the committee, Stephen Twigg, said in a statement: “It is so important that the UK behaves at home as it is asking some of the world’s poorest nations to do.

Macron Attacks Brexit, Calls for ‘European Federalism’ in Pre-Election War Cry

Globalist French President Emmanuel Macron has made a direct address to the over 500 million people who live in the European Union, calling on them to support his vision of a more centralised and powerful “project” European Union which, he believes, could even entice the United Kingdom into cancelling Brexit.

The plea to voters to back an enhanced European Union which would take more control over its member nation states comes just months before the continental power bloc holds elections to select Members of the European Parliament for the next five-year term.

‘Aggressive promotion of homosexuality’: School stops LGBT lessons after backlash from angry parents

A primary school in Birmingham, England, has halted LGBT lessons after 600 pupils were reportedly taken out of classes by furious Muslim parents upset at homosexuality being “aggressively” taught to their children.

Parkfield Community School has been forced to suspend its ‘No Outsiders’ classes until after Easter, while a consultation takes place with parents. Tensions between the school and parents have escalated due to a row surrounding LGBT lifestyles being taught in classrooms.

UK: Supporters of Muslim rape gang threaten to rape female court prosecutors

The report below states: “Supporters of a depraved Asian sex gang targeted two female prosecutors outside a court room, hurling abuse and telling them: ‘Hope you get raped.'”

The sex gangs in the UK, known in the establishment media as “Asian grooming gangs,” have actually been Muslim rape gangs. This particular Muslim rape gang behaved in a manner that was consistent with their beliefs about women. They view infidel women as inferiors, and if a woman is not covered up, this in itself is justifiable reason to abuse her (Quran 24:31, 33:59).

The report goes on to say in its full version that “throughout the case some defendants had to be warned about their conduct and there was aggressive behaviour by some of their families.” This reveals their disdain for Western courts and infidel, female prosecutors. Yet Britain has still not awakened to the ideology that motivates their disdain, as well as their crimes.

Labour MP Siobhain Mcdonagh: “to be anti-capitalism is to be anti-semitic”

In an interview on BBC Radio 4 this morning, Labour MP for Mitcham and Morden, Siobhain McDonagh, made the link between anti-capitalists and anti-semitism. When asked if the Labour party are taking anti-semitism seriously, she replied:

“I’M NOT SURE THAT SOME PEOPLE IN THE LABOUR PARTY CAN, BECAUSE IT’S VERY MUCH PART OF THEIR POLITICS – OF HARD LEFT POLITICS – TO BE AGAINST CAPITALISTS, AND TO SEE JEWISH PEOPLE AS THE FINANCERS OF CAPITAL”

She was then asked: “In other words, to be anti-capitalist you have to be anti-semitic?”

"While the old Left tended to unite us by leading the fight against the horrid capitalists rather than worrying about whether you were a man or a woman, black or white, Jew or Muslim, gay or heterosexual, our present-day “Left” actually promotes racial differences and divisions as it pushes people to identify with their biology (skin colour, gender, sexual orientation, the Jewish maternal gene, etc.)">>

SALISBURY: UNANSWERED QUESTIONS

A year ago, on 4 March 2018, Sergei and Yulia Skripal were reportedly poisoned with a nerve agent in Salisbury, Wiltshire. The UK government has accused the Russian state of being responsible for the poisoning. Russia has denied any involvement. The incident has caused major international repercussions, bringing Russia-UK and Russia-West relations to a new low. Yet details of what happened remain unclear.

The Russian Embassy pays tribute to all those who have helped and supported the two Russian nationals affected, first and foremost to first responders and medical staff. We also commend the efforts of journalists, bloggers and members of the public who have been working tirelessly to ensure that truth over what happened is established and disseminated, despite the extremely difficult media environment imposed by the British authorities.

Banking leak exposes Russian network with link to Prince Charles

A charity run by Prince Charles received donations from an offshore company that was used to funnel vast amounts of cash from Russia in a scheme that is under investigation by prosecutors, the Guardian can reveal.

Money flowing through the network included cash that can be linked to some of the most notorious frauds committed during Vladimir Putin’s presidency.

In all, it is estimated that $4.6bn (£3.5bn) was sent to Europe and the US from a Russian-operated network of 70 offshore companies with accounts in Lithuania.

The details have emerged from 1.3m banking transactions obtained by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project and the Lithuanian website 15min.lt.

Shared with media partners including the Guardian, the data represents one of the largest ever banking leaks.

Tusk warns of ‘hostile foreign meddling’ in European Parliament elections in May

European Council President Donald Tusk warned on Tuesday of the risk of hostile foreign meddling in European Parliament elections in May. He also urged for a swift start to the “European renaissance” that France’s Emmanuel Macron had called for, Reuters reports. “There are external anti-European forces which are seeking – openly or secretly – to influence the democratic choices of the Europeans,” Tusk said, naming the ‘Leave’ result in Britain’s 2016 Brexit referendum as one such example.

BREXIT LIVE: EU nations facing ECONOMIC CRISIS in no deal - Brussels issued stern WARNING

The Bank of England has warned that families and businesses across the EU will have higher borrowing costs and financial turmoil as authorities have no prepare for a no-deal Brexit. This comes as Emmanuel Macron has sparked a vicious backlash for claiming Brexit was the result of an “irresponsible lie” and saying the situation represents the worst crisis since the Second World War. In the French president’s letter to the ‘Citizens of Europe’, published in a number of publications across the continent and in the UK, he said: “Who told the British people the truth about their post-Brexit future?"

Power bills shake-up will leave pensioners having to pay MORE... while rich families in large homes will SAVE cash

Millions of pensioners and poorer households face paying more for energy under a shake-up by the industry regulator.

The plans, which are being finalised by Ofgem after years of consultations, would change the way energy firms charge customers for the cost of sending gas and electricity to homes.

Instead of including these costs in the price per unit of energy that customers use, they will be split out into a ‘fixed charge’ per day that will appear on energy bills.

This daily fee will be averaged out so that every customer pays the same fixed cost per month, with their gas and electricity usage added on top.

As a result of loading these fixed costs on to bills, the poorest families who use the least energy are likely to pay more than they do today.

Bend over and spread 'em!

Corbyn calls for UK to condemn Israel’s targeting of Palestinians

Head of the British Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn has called for the UK government to condemn Israel’s killing of Palestinians as well as to freeze arms sales to the occupation state.

His remarks came in the wake of a UN report which found that Israel might have committed war crimes against Palestinians.

On Twitter, Corbyn wrote: “The UN says Israel’s killings of demonstrators in Gaza – including children, paramedics and journalists – may constitute ‘war crimes or crimes against humanity’”.

“The UK government must unequivocally condemn the killings and freeze arms sales to Israel.”

The UN report, published earlier this week, said: “The Israeli security forces killed and maimed Palestinian demonstrators who did not pose an imminent threat of death or serious injury to others when they were shot, nor were they directly participating in hostilities,” adding that the protests had been “civilian in nature”.

ROYAL MESS: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Will Raise Their Baby as “Gender Fluid”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be raising their new baby as “gender fluid” and won’t impose any stereotypes on it, reported The Sun.
Meghan Markle, 37, is 7 months pregnant and recently told guests at her baby shower that she will be raising her child to be gender fluid.

People speculate that she will avoid dressing “Baby Sussex” in pink or blue clothing like others raising “theybies” — children who are not referred to as ‘he’ or ‘she.’

Friends who posted pictures from Markle’s baby shower to social media used the hashtag #Girl suggesting she will be giving birth to a girl this Spring.

Parents raising “gender fluid” babies are all a part of a Marxist movement to turn societal norms upside down.

Labour’s McCarthyism

Another one bites the dust.

Left-wing MP Chris Williamson is the latest prominent Labour figure to be thrown to the wolves.

On Thursday he was suspended from the party for an unspecified “pattern of behaviour.”

This comes after a long campaign of incitement against Williamson by the Israel lobby.

It began in the summer of 2017, after he accurately, and bravely, stuck his neck out and condemned “lies and dirty tricks” around the “anti-Semitism smears”.

“Many people in the Jewish community are appalled by what they see as the weaponization of anti-Semitism for political ends,” he told the Guardian.

Since then, along with Corbyn himself, Williamson has been Public Enemy Number One for the Israel lobby.

A View From The Brextanic

Longtime Automatic Earth friend Alexander Aston talks about finding himself at Oxford at a point in time when the British themselves appear overcome by a combo of utter confusion and deadly lethargy, and one can only imagine what it must be like for ‘foreigners’ residing in Albion, who face large potential changes to their lives and know there’s not a thing they can do about it, not even vote.

I like the observation that the entire British political system, the place where decisions are made, is the size of a small village. That’s a visual we can all relate to. It’s a physical limit as well as a mental one. I’m all for sovereignty and self-determination, but how’s that going to work if you can’t even see the boundaries of your own territory?

Guys, it’s 4 weeks to D-Day today. How about we call off the landing, get a few pints instead, and talk? First round’s on me.

The Witchfinders are now Ready to Burn Corbyn

“McCarthyism” is a word thrown around a lot nowadays, and in the process its true meaning – and horror – has been increasingly obscured.

McCarthyism is not just the hounding of someone because their views are unpopular. It is the creation by the powerful of a perfect, self-rationalising system of incrimination – denying the victim a voice, even in their own defence. It presents the accused as an enemy so dangerous, their ideas so corrupting, that they must be silenced from the outset. Their only chance of rehabilitation is prostration before their accusers and utter repentance.

McCarthyism, in other words, is the modern political parallel of the witch hunt.

British Jewish organisation critical of Israel forced to cancel documentary screening

In what looks like the next chapter in the ongoing row over alleged antisemitism within the Labour Party, a British Jewish organisation critical of Israel has been forced to cancel the screening of a controversial documentary in the House of Commons. The film explores the background to the allegations and was due to be screened next month.

Labour MP Chris Williamson booked a room in parliament to screen the film about the suspended Jewish Labour activist Jackie Walker, although the screening was organised by Jewish Voice for Labour (JVL), a network for Jewish members of the Labour Party. The group has backed party leader Jeremy Corbyn during the row over antisemitism, which started on his election as leader in 2015.

BBC Question Time audience brilliantly PROVE why second Brexit referendum will NOT work

Speaking on BBC’s Question Time, German comedian Henning Wehn used the audience to prove his point that a second Brexit referendum would not deliver another decisive result. Mr Wehn claimed the BBC audience represented the views of the whole of the UK, as he joked about the Brexit debate on the show. He said: “I quite like the whole scenario of what is going on because it is highly entertaining.

“We haven’t had a dull moment since. Every morning you wake up, instantly turn on the radio, has anyone resigned? Have we still got a government? Is anyone saying anything about bananas being too straight or too bendy? Or is there some arch-Remainer going ‘oh if there is a no deal Brexit there will never, ever be another plane taking off from British soil'.

“For me, with the referendum, I would have personally preferred if it was best of seven.”

'They should wait until they've sorted out Brexit!' Fury as MPs are handed a £2,000 pay rise in April as expenses watchdog hikes their basic salary 2.7 per cent to £79,468

A £2,000-a--year pay rise for MPs sparked a furious backlash last night.

The inflation-busting 2.7 per cent increase, which was announced by the Whitehall quango in charge of pay and expenses, will take basic annual salaries to nearly £80,000.

It means MPs have seen their wages go up by more than 20 per cent in the past seven years.

UK Rejects International Court of Justice Opinion on the Chagos Islands 317

In parliament, Alan Duncan for the government has just rejected yesterday’s stunning result at the International Court of Justice, where British occupation of the Chagos Islands was found unlawful by a majority of 13 to 1, with all the judges from EU countries amongst those finding against the UK.

This represents a serious escalation in the UK’s rejection of multilateralism and international law and a move towards joining the US model of exceptionalism, standing outside the rule of international law. As such, it is arguably the most significant foreign policy development for generations. In the Iraq war, while Britain launched war without UN Security Council authority, it did so on a tenuous argument that it had Security Council authority from earlier resolutions. The UK was therefore not outright rejecting the international system. On Chagos it is now simply denying the authority of the International Court of Justice; this is utterly unprecedented.

Israel’s ‘racist’ Nation-State Law condemned in Westminster

Israel’s Jewish Nation-State Law was condemned as “racist” at a seminar held in the Palace of Westminster yesterday by EuroPal Forum whose chairman, Zaher Birawi, described the legislation as “racist”. The law was ratified by the Knesset in July last year.

Hosted by British Labour MP Andy Slaughter and chaired by journalist and researcher Nasim Ahmed, the seminar brought together individuals from the legal, diplomatic and public policy fields. The intention was to elucidate a more nuanced understanding of the Nation-State Law while also communicating the various steps that could be taken by the international community to challenge Israel’s violations of international law. The “Basic Law: Israel as the Nation-State of the Jewish People” has been criticised widely, described by Palestinians and members of the international community alike as both discriminatory and verging on apartheid.

Hezbollah Becomes Theresa May’s Latest Scapegoat In her Battle for Political Survival

Having lost considerable influence in Europe and other parts of the world over the chaotic Brexit process, Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May is seeking to gain leverage by boxing-in Hezbollah. British politics under the Conservative government not only appears to have lost the plot, but many may not be faulted if they also ask whether May has lost her marbles as well.

Lebanon’s Hezbollah, it has been announced by Home Secretary Sajid Javid, is henceforth to be designated as a “terrorist organization” in its entirety. To date, Britain has only designated the armed wing of the group. The reason given for this move is plainly ridiculous and alludes to why many wonder if Britain has run into a cul-de-sac of its own making. According to Javid, he decided to proscribe Hezbollah because it is “continuing in its attempts to destabilize the fragile situation in the Middle East.”

UK WILL PAY: German businesses to OVERCHARGE Brits after Brexit 'why should WE suffer?'

GERMAN businesses have hatched plans to charge British consumers higher prices in order to make up for potential Brexit-related losses, it has been revealed.

Smaller firms are also following the lead after Lueneburg Chamber of Commerce published “five Brexit tips”, which includes charging Britons more to cover potential customs duties.

The EU27 are far less prepared for no-deal Brexit than you’d think

As 29 March gets nearer and Theresa May tries to get a Brexit deal through parliament, preparations for no deal continue in both London and mainland Europe. It’s been well-documented that the UK government’s preparations haven’t been optimal, and many British companies aren’t really prepared for no deal.

Nuclear Weapons: Who Has What at a Glance

At the dawn of the nuclear age, the United States hoped to maintain a monopoly on its new weapon, but the secrets and the technology for making nuclear weapons soon spread. The United States conducted its first nuclear test explosion in July 1945 and dropped two atomic bombs on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945. Just four years later, the Soviet Union conducted its first nuclear test explosion. The United Kingdom (1952), France (1960), and China (1964) followed. Seeking to prevent the nuclear weapon ranks from expanding further, the United States and other like-minded states negotiated the nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) in 1968 and the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) in 1996.

Higher food prices, an extra £13bn in costs for 240,000 businesses and huge passport queues: Government releases damning no deal Brexit report just hours after May insists UK can 'make a success out of crashing out without a deal'

The Government admitted 200,000 firms that trade with the EU are not ready for a no deal Brexit tonight in a damning report with just 31 days to exit day.

The study from the Brexit department also found citizens are ignoring no deal warnings and failing to make sure they are ready for a no deal.

It said no deal would cause delays at the border - potentially meaning shortages and prices rises for some food, particularly fresh produce not in season in Britain.

The report warns panic buying could fuel shortages in foods that are shipped across the Channel.

Ahead of the publication of tonight's report Theresa May admitted it would be an 'honest assessment' of the 'serious challenges' facing Britain after no deal.

But she told MPs: 'I believe that if we have to, we will ultimately make a success of a No Deal.'

BEST FOR BRITAIN BEGGING CEOS FOR £500,000 OF CORPORATE ‘DARK MONEY’ TO STOP BREXIT

Guido can reveal that the hardcore anti-Brexit campaign founded by Gina Miller, Best for Britain, have been sending around a begging letter in the name of arch-elitist Lord Malloch-Brown to various FTSE CEOs in the hope of raising a staggering £500,000 in the next two weeks. You read that right – half a million pounds in two weeks.

Best for Britain describe how “generous support, both corporate and individual” has got them this far, enabling them to use “fact-based advocacy” to show how “views have been shifting across the country”, while “promot[ing] truthful common sense analysis of the issues” and funding “a range of smaller organisations across the country ensuring a wide range of voices have been heard in this debate”. Who could they possibly mean?

Israeli Interference in British Politics: Targeted against Corbyn

UK PARLIAMENT VOTES TO BAN ALL BRANCHES OF HEZBOLLAH

The United Kingdom’s House of Commons voted on Tuesday night to ban all wings of Hezbollah due to its destabilizing influence in the Middle East, classing the movement as a terrorist organization.

The UK Labour Party allowed its MPs freedom to vote their conscience stating that there is “not sufficient evidence” that the organization meets proscription criteria and accusing the home secretary of taking the decision based on his “leadership ambitions.”

Israel lobby funders back breakaway British MPs

A multi-millionaire pro-Israel lobbyist is funding the UK Parliament’s new Independent Group, it was revealed this week.

Others are likely to follow.

David Garrard told newspapers he had already donated to the MPs who broke away from the opposition Labour Party and the ruling Conservative Party.

The Independent Group is expected to eventually register as a party.

Garrard has for many years been a major financial backer of Labour Friends of Israel, a front group for the Israeli embassy, and was recently appointed to its board.

Prior to left-wing Palestine solidarity activist Jeremy Corbyn becoming party leader in 2015, Garrard donated almost $2 million to Labour under former leaders Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and Ed Miliband.

Nearly 90% of Britons feel UK leadership spurns public – poll

Sky Data’s yearly ‘State of the Nation’ poll, published Tuesday, highlights some troubling trends in British society’s self-perception. Those who conducted the poll hoped to “shed light on the mood of the nation” ahead of the UK’s exit from the European Union, and what they found out was anything but encouraging.

When participants were asked whether they feel their political leaders care about people “like them,” a whopping 87 percent of respondents marked either not very much, or not at all. Interestingly, people across all age groups, political allegiances and regions responded with fairly consistent cynicism regarding their politicians’ motivations for public service.

Up to 100 ‘British’ Children Born to Islamic State Brides in Syria

There are as many as 100 children born to Islamic State brides in Syria who can claim British citizenship, according to sources speaking to The Telegraph.
The newspaper also reports that 150 women and girls left the UK to left to join the terrorist death cult in Syria, with almost all marrying jihadist fighters and giving birth.

The report comes as the British government last week stripped female Islamic State member Shamima Begum of her British citizenship — but indicated that the citizenship status of her son, born in a Syrian refugee camp to the Bangladeshi national and fathered by Dutch Muslim convert and convicted terrorist Yago Riedijk, would be unaffected.

Brexit SHAME: May risks Brexiteers FURY as she 'plans to rule out NO DEAL TODAY'

THERESA May is set to risk infuriating Brexiteers by ruling out a no-deal Brexit on March 29 if Parliament does not sign off on her deal, it has emerged.

This means Brexit would likely be delayed unless Parliament signs off on the agreement. Cabinet ministers opposed to a hard Brexit had reportedly threatened to resign unless Mrs May made the concession. It comes as the Labour Party said it could back a second referendum on the UK’s EU membership.

Israel welcomes UK decision to blacklist Hezbollah

Israel yesterday welcomed the British decision to blacklist the Lebanese Shia group Hezbollah, calling for all EU member states to follow suite, the Anadolu Agency reported.

“Thank you to the UK and my friend @sajidjavid for deciding to designate all of #Hezbollah as a terrorist group. All who truly wish to combat terror must reject the fake distinction between “military” & “political” wings. Now is the time for the #EU to follow suit!” Israeli Minister of Public Security and Strategic Affairs Gilad Erdan wrote on Twitter.

HEZBOLLAH BAN IS WIN FOR BLAIR

The official Labour Party position was that Corbyn’s friends should not be banned, on the basis of a specious argument that the political wing is not connected to the military wing. Tony Blair’s Institute has been lobbying hard for a UK ban on the Iranian-backed terrorists Hezbollah. Entirely coincidentally the former Tony Blair got paid $12 million by Iran’s bitter rivals and his own client, the Saudi regime. Fancy that…

Grenfell scapegoats and the invisible Gilets Jaunes

The incineration of the poorest people in Britain at a location surrounded by some of the richest real estate in Europe was a tale of morality worthy of Charles Dickens himself. The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea was rolling in so much cash, it gave rebates in council tax to some of the world’s richest people. Yet the same borough was the not-so-proud owner of social housing like Grenfell Tower. On June 14, 2017, not even two years ago, 72 people died in a building wrapped in combustible cladding. The smell of the smoke still lingers, along with much anger, and there are signs that a search for a scapegoat may be under way. It won’t be the scapegoat anyone would automatically assume, however

White heterosexual males face discrimination everywhere, man says after winning employment tribunal

A potential police recruit who was rejected from a force because he is white, male and heterosexual has said he believes many other men may have been similarly discriminated against.

An employment tribunal found Cheshire Police was guilty of discrimination against Matthew Furlong on the grounds of sexual orientation, race and gender after his application to join was unsuccessful.

The 25-year-old particle physics graduate, who applied to be a constable in 2017, discovered he had been turned down because the force needed more diverse candidates.

“It has completely shattered my confidence in the police force recruitment system," he said.

"The irony of the whole thing is that throughout the whole process I was required to demonstrate my honesty and integrity and they have completely undermined that.

"Had I lied on my interview form and said I was bisexual, for instance, there's a strong possibility I would be working for Cheshire Police now based on a lie."

MI5 Worried Daesh Cells Will Be in Almost Every City Across UK - Reports

British intelligence services believe that terrorists could attempt to organise sleeper cells in London and Manchester, which have already been hit by deadly attacks, along with Birmingham and other areas with large Muslim populations, the Daily Star reported, citing sources.

A source told the Daily Star that people returning to the UK are "tough, possibly traumatised individuals who are effectively addicted to fighting" after surviving months and possibly years of war.

The UK's MI5 reportedly worries that hundreds of Daesh* supporters have set up groups determined on bringing terror to the streets of almost every British city.

"These individuals are not just going to give up the fight — waging jihad is their life. There will be a calm before the storm when they begin to recruit and organise, but the storm is coming", the Daily Stare quote the source as saying.

The City may thrive despite Brexit, but the rest of us won’t

An iron law of modern British government says that whatever London wants, London gets. On Monday, with no fuss or publicity, the Bank of England and a group of City interests reached an apparently boring deal in Paris with the European Security and Markets Authority. It follows a similar deal with the European commission last December. Both state, in effect, that, as far as the City is concerned, if there is a no-deal Brexit, Brexit did not happen. It was just play-acting by idiots down the road in Westminster.

UK to ban Hezbollah over attempts to 'destabilise' Middle East

Britain said on Monday it would ban Hezbollah, adding the Lebanese Shia group in its entirety to its list of banned terrorist organisations.

Hezbollah's armed wings, the External Security Organisation and the Jihad Council military wings. were already banned in 2001 and 2008 respectively.

Home Secretary Sajid Javid said in a statement on Monday that it was no longer tenable, however, to maintain that there was a distinction between the political and military sides of the group.

"Hezbollah is continuing in its attempts to destabilise the fragile situation in the Middle East – and we are no longer able to distinguish between their already banned military wing and the political party," Javid said.

"Because of this, I have taken the decision to proscribe the group in its entirety."

Controversial electric shock treatment for severe depression could cause permanent brain damage and ‘should be stopped’, leading expert warns

A review of ten NHS mental health trusts, carried out by Professor John Read from the University of East London, has revealed that one patient in three is given electroconvulsive therapy, or ECT, without their consent.

Prof Read’s Freedom of Information requests also showed a third of NHS trusts were failing to recognise adverse effects, which include long-term memory loss.

More than 5,000 British psychiatric patients receive ECT each year and in the wake of the findings, experts are now calling for a urgent review of the therapy, which they say offers no long-term benefits.

NHS figures have revealed the old-fashioned illnesses, and vitamin D deficiencies, are on the rise and sending children as young as nine to hospital wards.

Vitamin D deficiency is the biggest problem of the four, the data shows, with the bone-weakening condition shooting up by 34 per cent in a year.

Brexit stitch-up: UK’s departure from EU could be DELAYED until 2021, EU sources REVEAL

BREXIT could be delayed until 2021 under outrageous new plans being plotted by senior European Union officials, it has emerged.

The EU are plotting to tell Theresa May if she doesn’t get her Brexit deal through Parliament and wants to delay Brexit, the UK will have to remain in the bloc until at least 2021. Three EU insiders said senior figures and governments are backing an extension of as much as 21 months beyond the current March 29 deadline. Officials on both sides now anticipate some form of extension as a way of avoiding a no-deal scenario.

Theresa May allowed GCHQ spy chief to resign for 'family reasons' after he helped PAEDOPHILE Catholic priest avoid jail - despite media being told he would be 'caring for a sick relative'

One of Britain’s top spy chiefs quit after it emerged that he helped a paedophile Catholic priest avoid jail, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

Prime Minister Theresa May was last night accused of a cover-up over the scandal as she knew of GCHQ director Robert Hannigan’s connection to the child sex offender when he stood down in 2017.

At the time, Mr Hannigan had cited ‘family reasons’, with this crucial link kept secret.

The high-flying civil servant, who was lauded for his role in striking peace in Northern Ireland, stunned Whitehall with his exit after just two years in charge of GCHQ.

This newspaper has learned he stepped down after the National Crime Agency discovered that he helped a close family friend avoid a custodial sentence for possessing 174 child pornography images.

Theresa May Facing Pressure To Quit Within Three Months

Tory MPs have already made their distaste for Prime Minister Theresa May abundantly clear: It's widely believed that she only survived an intra-party leadership challenge last year by promising to step down before the next general election (and even then, one in three Tory MPs still voted for her ouster). And with the UK inching ever-closer to a 'no deal' Brexit - to the horror of pretty. much everybody except the DUP and some ERG hardliners - it's looking increasingly likely that May won't manage to hang on to power much longer.

Gay & trans sex education to be taught to FIVE-YEAR-OLDS in UK & opting out is ILLEGAL

The UK Conservative government is set to announce plans for the introduction of lessons on homosexuality and transgenderism for primary school students, despite an official petition against the move, signed by over 100,000.

The Sunday Times reports that the new curriculum has been finalized after a six-month consultation with the Department of Education, and will be rolled out across UK schools starting from the 2020-21 educational year.

It will be taught to pupils from the age of five, and it will be illegal for parents to take their children out of the classroom for the lessons in secondary school, meaning that at least a term’s worth of sex education classes – and likely far more – will be attended by each student.

Khan’s London: Two Shot and Stabbed in Street Brawl, Teen Dies from Injuries

A teenager has died after he and another individual were attacked by a group armed with “at least one firearm, knives, and a samurai sword” in London.

The attack took place in the early evening on Friday, February 22nd, in Wood Green, north London, the Evening Standard reports.

An unnamed 19-year-old victim died from stab wounds around 3 a.m. in the early hours of the following morning, despite the best efforts of paramedics and hospital staff to save him, while the knife and gunshot injuries of a second male aged 20 are said to be “non-life-threatening”.

The Queen is set to enjoy a rare private dinner with the US Ambassador next month, in a move which could pave the way for a full state visit by US President Donald Trump.

The 92-year-old monarch will, unusually, dine with Robert ‘Woody’ Johnson at Winfield House, the imposing Regent’s Park residence of America’s leading official in the UK.

Buckingham Palace has not officially revealed details of the meeting and a spokeswoman for the Queen said yesterday that they would not comment on a ‘private’ engagement.

EU Expects UK PM May to Request Three-Month Delay of Brexit – Reports

Discussions between the EU and UK reportedly suggest May will ask for an extension to the two-year negotiating period if the British Parliament backs the Brexit deal but it isn’t signed off until an EU summit on March 21-22.

The EU sees this “technical extension” as an opportunity to give British Parliament time to pass necessary legislation related to its departure from the Union, as anything longer than three months would put the UK under pressure to take part in European elections on May 23-26, Bloomberg reported quoting an anonymous source.

UK lawmakers have united in a so-called Brexit Delivery Group, with a goal of preventing London's disorganised withdrawal from the European Union, The Daily Telegraph reported citing sources.

A group of 100 moderate Tory parliamentarians has warned British Prime Minister Theresa May that they are going to oppose the government she heads and force her to postpone Brexit if she cannot reach a deal with the EU that the British parliament would support, The Daily Telegraph reported late on 21 February citing a letter.
