THERESA MAY’S HUSBAND’S INVESTMENT FIRM MADE A FINANCIAL KILLING FROM THE BOMBING OF SYRIA

It is common knowledge that Theresa May’s husband Philip essentially acts as the unofficial advisor to the Prime Minister – a fact proven by the former Conservative MP for Chichester, Andrew Tyrie, who said during a Newsnight profile of the PM’s husband that “Philip is clearly acting as, informally, an advisor to Theresa. Probably much like Denis did to Margaret Thatcher.”

The Guardian view on Theresa May: a poisonous legacy

Prime ministers do not get to dictate their legacies from a lectern outside No 10, and there was some pathos in Theresa May’s attempt today to list accomplishments in government to offset her colossal failure to take Britain out of the European Union. That she oversaw a reduction in the use of disposable plastics is laudable, but it is not how history will remember her time in office. But Mrs May never saw Brexit as her sole purpose in Downing Street. Her inability to grasp from the outset how all-consuming and difficult the project would be played a large part in her downfall.

Top Republican Nunes Wants Theresa May to Answer Questions About Steele Dossier, What Did Brennan Know?

Ranking Republican of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes sent a letter Wednesday to President Donald Trump, asking him to question British Prime Minister Theresa May about Great Britain’s role in the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia.

The inquiry would be significant and it is based on newly published information in the British newspaper The Telegraph revealing that former British spy Christopher Steele briefed May’s spy chiefs on the uncorroborated dossier.

Nigel Farage Warns not to Trust Boris Johnson's Brexit Pledges

Shortly after Theresa May announced that she would resign as the leader of the Conservative Party on 7 June and continue to lead the government until her successor is chosen, former UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson hinted that he is ready to become the country's next PM.

Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage has cast doubt on former British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson’s ability to act as the country’s new prime minister after May’s announcement that she would step down.

“Now Boris pledges that the UK will definitely leave the EU on 31 October, ‘Brexit deal or no deal’. But why should we trust him to keep his word?” the former leader of UKIP wrote in an article for the Sunday Express.

Boris Johnson: UK will leave EU in October, deal or no deal

Boris Johnson has thrown down the gauntlet to his Conservative leadership rivals by insisting the UK must leave the EU by the end of October with or without a deal, as he set out a hardline Brexit stance just hours after Theresa May announced her resignation.

Johnson is the favourite among Conservative members to take over as prime minister by the last week of July, but he will face competition from as many as 20 rivals.

The foreign secretary, Jeremy Hunt, was the first cabinet minister to say he would stand, while Dominic Raab, the former Brexit secretary, said he would take time to think about it over the weekend. The environment secretary, Michael Gove, and the home secretary, Sajid Javid, are also expected to announce leadership bids in the coming days.

UK government staff strike as they rely on food banks to survive

Government staff in the British capital London are the latest group to be forced into poverty in the country as they go on a strike saying missed payments and low pay have left them with nothing to eat.

The Guardian newspaper said in a Tuesday report that support staff working for several UK government departments had staged a walkout in London’s Westminster earlier in the day after a multi-billion company hiring them missed several paydays.

The staff workers said the missed payments had left them in severe poverty as they were forced to rely on food banks to earn something to eat.

Theresa May resigns over Brexit: What happened?

It's the question that has kept British politics awash with rumours for months - when will Theresa May resign?

Her Brexit plans failed again and again to impress squabbling MPs in parliament, but she soldiered on regardless. Until now.

In an emotional statement outside her office in Downing St, Mrs May finally announced she was stepping down as prime minister.

She will quit as Conservative party leader on 7 June but will stay in office until a successor is found.

BREXIT BOMBSHELL: Boris Johnson warns 'prepare for NO DEAL' as he unveils strategy

BORIS JOHNSON has warned the UK the way to get a good Brexit deal is to “prepare for a no deal” as the leading candidate to take over as Prime Minister from Theresa May outlined his EU exit strategy.

The former Foreign Secretary, who has announced he would like to replace Theresa May as the leader of the Conservative Party, said this would be the best way to proceed if Britain is to negotiate a suitable Brexit agreement. Just hours after the Prime Minister sensationally announced she was resigning, Mr Johnson told an economic in Switzerland: "We will leave the EU on October 31, deal or no deal. The way to get a good deal is to prepare for a no deal.”

Revealed: Home Office allowed 7,500 migrants accused of cheating the student visa system to stay in Britain

Thousands of migrants accused of cheating the student visa system have been allowed to stay in Britain, a report has warned.

Around 56,000 foreign citizens were implicated in a scam to fake English language tests to beat UK border controls, said the National Audit Office (NAO).

The spending watchdog said bogus students had exploited the lax system in a racket run by criminal gangs.

Yet about 7,500 had been given permission to remain in the UK rather than being thrown out – often challenging the decision on human rights grounds.

Farage on course to thrash Tories as Euro Election polls close - and Boris could be heading to No10, Mail poll reveals

The Survation poll for the Daily Mail shows Mr Farage’s Brexit Party well ahead in the European elections on 31 per cent, trailed by Labour on 23, the Conservatives on 14 and the Lib Dems on 12.

Nearly seven out of ten Tory voters said the reason they did not intend to vote for Mrs May yesterday was because of her failure to deliver Brexit. Calls for her to step down were backed by 57 per cent of Conservatives with 25 per cent against.

BBC Question Time FURY: No Brexit Party panellist AGAIN despite leading EU election polls

Mr Farage hit out at BBC Question Time last week after it didn’t feature any Brexit Party candidates.

He told a crowd at a rally in Wolverhampton: “We can choose to buy different newspapers.

“We can choose to listen to different commercial radio stations.

“Where I have a problem is when we are effectively taxed £150 a year just to have a television in our house.

“When the public service broadcaster does not put a single representative of this new party on any major television programme, even when we have gone from nothing to topping the polls."

Brexit CHAOS: Iain Dale reveals MAJOR problem with Theresa May departure on BBC Newsnight

The LBC presenter claimed despite The Times reporting Mrs May will resign on Friday, he believes it won't be as instantaneous as some may hope. Speaking on BBC Newsnight, Mr Dale argued despite Mrs May reportedly leaving, there still could be conflict on how immediate her departure is. The political commentator insisted if Boris Johnson or Dominic Raab take over as party leader they will want to start their tenure immediately, which might not be what Mrs May intends to do.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's going to take a lot of sandpaper and paint to get the claw marks out of the doorframe at Number 10!

May 23 10:17

The perverse logic of Britain’s foreign minister

Boycotting Israel is anti-Semitic.

That at least is the view of the German parliament, where a vote Friday saw lawmakers denounce – in a non-binding vote – the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement, because “the ‘don’t buy’ stickers of the BDS movement on Israeli products [could be associated] with the Nazi call ‘don’t buy from Jews.’”

Now, of course, one might suggest that if anyone knows anything about anti-Semitism, well then the German parliament is where you might find them.

But that would be a rather crude World War II/Nazi reference which, when invoked, means you’ve already lost the argument. So we’ll steer clear.

One might also suggest that this is hardly a very watertight argument, that pretty much anything “could be associated” with or can be seen as “reminiscent of” pretty much anything.

You don’t support whale hunting? You must hate the Japanese. Or the Norwegians.

Brexit Party set to make European elections HISTORY - largest share of UK vote in 25 YEARS

The grassroots eurosceptic party, led by Nigel Farage, is polling at a huge 37 percent in the latest YouGov poll for The Times of 3,864 British adults from May 19-21 - likely to be one of the last key indicators before the British public cast their vote. If this is reflected at the ballot box, the figure would be the largest ever achieved by a non-mainstream political party in the European elections. It would also be the highest since the Labour Party romped to victory with 42.6 percent of the overall vote at the European elections in 1994.

...

The latest YouGov poll put the Liberal Democrats are a distant second on 19 percent, with Labour falling to 13 percent and the Greens increasing to 12 percent.

The Prime Minister is facing yet further humiliation, with just seven percent of those polled saying they would vote for the Conservative Party.

May's EU deal vote BLOCKED - Leadsom resignation causes Parliamentary CHAOS

THERESA MAY is facing fresh chaos tonight after Commons Leader Andrea Leadsom dramatically resigned from the Government over Brexit.

...

Brexiteer Mrs Leadsom said in a letter to Mrs May: “I cannot fulfil my duty as Leader of the House tomorrow, to announce a Bill with new elements that I fundamentally oppose.”

Mrs Leadsom’s resignation means there is no Commons Leader to introduce the Business Statement to MPs.

British Steel collapse: 25,000 jobs at risk as assets liquidated

British Steel has been ordered into compulsory liquidation after talks with the government failed to secure a bailout, threatening the jobs of about 5,000 employees, with another 20,000 jobs in the supply chain.

The steelmaker had requested an emergency $38m bailout loan from the British government following dwindling European sales amid Brexit uncertainty, and an ill-fated decision to sell off excess carbon credits earlier this year.

Just three weeks ago, the government had given a $150m loan to the company.

Why Farage Wins the Country and Corbyn Wins Only a Party

Nigel Farage, Britain’s Donald Trump character, is by far the most significant man in British politics. In just a few weeks he has gathered huge political momentum. In tomorrow’s European Parliament elections he appears likely to score more votes than Labour and the Conservatives combined. Farage stood up against the entire political establishment, including the media and the commercial elites and has promised to change British politics once and for all. So far, it seems he is winning on all fronts.

How it is that once again a Right wing populist has won the minds and hearts of working people? How is it possible that Jeremy Corbyn, who was perceived by many of us as the greatest hope in Western politics, has managed, in less than three years, to make himself an irrelevant passing phase? How is it possible that the Right consistently wins when the conditions exist for a textbook socialist revolution?

UK's planned Espionage Act will crack down on Snowden-style Brit whistleblowers, suspected backdoored gear (cough, Huawei)

UK Home Secretary Sajid Javid has announced an Espionage Bill, charging ahead with new laws intended to criminalise any British copycats of Edward Snowden – and allowing a future crackdown on Huawei.

The bill, said Javid, "will bring together new and modernised powers, giving our security services the legal authority they need" to tackle foreign spies operating on UK soil.

"The areas this work will consider includes whether we follow allies in adopting a form of foreign agent registration and how we update our Official Secrets Acts for the 21st century," the Home Secretary said at New Scotland Yard earlier today.

He also called for new treason laws, which he said would be aimed at people who "betray" Britain, whether at home or abroad.

TalkTalk data breach customer details found online

TalkTalk failed to inform 4,545 customers their personal information, including bank account details, were stolen as part of the 2015 data breach.

Viewers contacted BBC Watchdog Live about concerns that their details had been breached by TalkTalk.

But the company had told them that their details were not comprised.

"The customer data referred to by BBC Watchdog relates to the historical October 2015 data breach. It is not a new incident," the firm said.

The BBC consumer show investigated and found the personal details of approximately 4,500 customers available online after a Google search.

The details included full names, addresses, email addresses, dates of birth, TalkTalk customer numbers, mobile numbers and bank details for thousands of customers.

‘Dangerous Precedent’: Turnover of Assange’s Personal Effects Shows US’ Power

Ecuador's move to turn items and documents belonging to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange over to the US emphasizes the power that the Trump administration can exert over the famed publisher, activist and comedian Randy Credico told Sputnik.

"It's completely outrageous," Credico told Radio Sputnik's Loud & Clear on Monday of the development. "I don't see the legal basis for that. This was done without any kind of court hearing."

"How they could turn that stuff over — his personal belongings — to the US, not even to the Brits, but to the US… it just shows you the level of control that the US government, the [US] State Department [and] every other agency has over [Ecuadorian President] Lenin Moreno, who has totally sold out."

Has the Day of the Nationalists Come?

A week from today, Europeans may be able to gauge how high the tide of populism and nationalism has risen within their countries and on their continent.

For all the returns will be in from three days of elections in the 28 nations represented in the European Parliament.

Expectation: Nationalists and populists will turn in their strongest performance since the EU was established, and their parliamentary group — Europe of Nations and Freedom — could sweep a fourth of the seats in Strasbourg.

Nigel Farage’s new Brexit Party is predicted to run first in the British elections, winning two to three times the votes of the ruling Tory Party of Prime Minister Theresa May.

Brexit BOMBSHELL: How BBC admitted promoting pro-EU BIAS in its own inquiry

According to a 2005 report by The Times, the BBC's own inquiry found the broadcaster guilty of pro-EU bias.

The report, written by an independent balanced panel of eurosceptics and europhiles, did not suggest the BBC deliberately tried to bend its coverage in favour of the EU and against eurosceptics.

However, the document said there was substance to the concern that “the BBC suffers from certain forms of cultural and unintentional bias and that despite the good intentions of its producers nobody thinks the outcome is impartial”.

The report, commissioned to find out if complaints by eurosceptics were justified, said BBC News suffered from an “institutional mindset” that led to a “reluctance to question pro-EU assumptions”.

The Times reported eurosceptics, including Conservative politicians, claimed that the report vindicated their longstanding complaint that the BBC was biased against them.

NIGEL FARAGE has launched a stunning attack on the BBC, claiming “the license fee has risen up our agenda” after pro-Brexit politicians were snubbed on Sunday’s The Andrew Marr Show.

The Brexit Party leader condemned the show and its producers for booking five Remainer guest, with no Brexiteers being heard on the programme. He issued a chilling threat to bosses at the corporation on Twitter, threatening to make the license fee part of his party’s manifesto. Guests on Mr Marr’s show included Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Lib Dems premier Vince Cable, the Scottish National Party’s Nicola Sturgeon as well as Change UK’s lead spokesman Chuka Umunna.

Brexit party taking Wales by storm as Labour support HALVES - poll

A new YouGov poll has revealed the levels of support for each party in Wales, taken from 1,009 voters’ party preference from May 16 to 20. The figures are also compared with results from an earlier poll in April which asked who people would vote for in the European elections. The results showed the Brexit Party stormed ahead by 36 percent, which is an increase of 26 percent since the earlier poll, while Plaid Cymru came in at 19 percent, with a four percent increase.

Labour received a disappointing 15 percent, which was half of what it previously polled, followed by the Liberal Democrats at 10 percent, which was an increase of four percent from last time.

The Green Party received eight percent of the vote, which was up by five percent.

The Conservative saw a disappointing seven percent and UKIP received two percent of the vote, after they both dropped by nine percent,

Change UK got two percent too, which was six percent less than last time.

But the Greens could be set to overtake the Tories, who come in fifth place, as they are set to secure six seats - just one less than the Governing Party.

Britain Comes First

When it seemed as if the British had lost their survival instinct as a society, the European Parliament election came along. The message delivered by every poll is undeniable: unlike their treacherous political class, the Brits are still amongst the most sophisticated people around, they are performing a landslide exodus from their rotten leading parties: the Conservatives and Labour. They are marching back to their true cultural roots: conservatism on one hand (the Brexit Party), welfare and openness on the other (the Liberal Democrats).

With just days left before the European elections take place, it is pretty clear that the Tories are going to be wiped out. The party that calls itself conservative is being humiliatingly beaten by a man who truly fits the term.

Huawei Offers To Sign 'No-Spy' Pacts With Governments As UK Embarks On 5G

Chinese smartphone and telecommunications equipment giant Huawei is willing to sign 'no-spy' agreements with governments which adopt their technology, including Britain, according to chairman Liang Hua.

The Trump administration has warned allies not to use Huawei's technology to implement 5G networks over concerns that they would allow Chinese intelligence services to spy on whoever uses it.

Moreover, Huawei and its CFO, Meng Wanzhou, are facing criminal charges in the United States over the alleged theft of trade secrets and sanctions violations in Iran.

As Reuters reports, Britain is still deciding on how much they will rely on Huawei - the world's largest supplier of telecom equipment - for their 5G networks.

US claims of Iran threat to coalition forces in Middle East rejected by British general

A British general serving in Iraq has rejected claims from the White House that coalition forces in the Middle East are facing an increased threat from Iran or its allies.

In recent days, Washington has responded to what it has claimed as a raised threat from Iran-backed militias to US and coalition forces fighting the remnants of Isis in Iraq and Syria, by dispatching an aircraft carrier, B-52 bombers and Patriot missiles. National security advisor John Bolton, a longtime advocate of regime change in Iran, has ordered up a proposal to immediately dispatch 120,000 US troops should Iran attack American forces.

But the British general who is second in command of strategy and information for the coalition operation named Inherent Resolve, Maj Gen Chris Ghika, told reporters at the Pentagon, there was no evidence of an increased threat.

Look harder: US rebukes British general for doubting heightened threat from Iran

A UK military commander was rebuked by the US Central Command for questioning Washington’s claims that Iran poses an increased threat. Gen. Ghika, a senior figure in the anti-ISIS coalition, said none was evident in Iraq or Syria.

The awkward exchange on Tuesday came as the US is trying to rally its allies to confront Tehran over an unspecified threat to American interests in the Middle East.

Despite the beat of the war drum, even the US’ closest allies remain skeptical about the narrative furthered by Iran hawks in Washington like US National Security Advisor John Bolton and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. One of the doubters is British Army Maj. Gen. Christopher Ghika, a deputy head of the US-led coalition created to fight the terrorist group Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS).

EU election BOMBSHELL: Farage Brexit party SOARS as voters ‘send message to Westminster’

In a poll conducted by ITV’s Good Morning Britain shared to Express.co.uk this evening, it revealed a third of the nation plans to vote for the Brexit Party in next weeks European parliament elections. This is compared to an embarrassing 12 percent of voters who intend to vote Tory, 11 percent who plan to vote Lib Dem, six percent for the Green Party, four percent for each of the SNP, Change UK and UKIP parties. Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party has a guaranteed 24 percent of votes, according to the Survation poll by the programme.

Up to 51 percent of those quizzed revealed the driving factor behind their vote was to “make sure Brexit goes ahead”, ITV said.

A further 27 percent said the main reason was that they agreed with their policies while a further 19 percent admitting they wanted to “send a message to Westminster with their vote”.

Up to 1,300 people took part in the poll, which included an online interview.

Revealed: The WhatsApp message that spread false rumour of Metro Bank 'going bankrupt' and sent worried savers rushing to empty their accounts

A false WhatsApp rumour telling Metro Bank customers to empty their accounts 'as soon as possible' was behind a panic which sent the company's shares tumbling, it has emerged.

A message which circulated on the Facebook-owned service claimed falsely that Metro Bank 'may be shut down or going bankrupt'.

It sparked fears for the future of the High Street bank and prompted some West London savers to queue up at a local branch and withdraw their money.

The bank has faced a tumultuous few months but has told customers there is 'no reason to be concerned' about the false claims.

Three-year-old changes gender from boy to girl after being sent to live with foster parents whose own son had just transitioned to become a female aged seven

A boy of three was dressed in a girl’s uniform for school after living with foster parents whose own son transitioned to being female at the age of seven.

The younger child was taken to school dressed as a girl despite teachers ‘expressly’ asking the foster couple to put him in boys’ clothing.

The parents at the centre of the case, which came to light in a court judgment released last week, also had a third child in their care who had ‘gender identity issues’.

The couple, known only as CP and TP, were investigated by Lancashire County Council’s social services amid accusations they had ‘manipulated’ their children’s gender and risked causing them ‘significant emotional harm’.

Antisemitism is now a mass movement in Britain

The Jewish press seems to be upset by a pro-Palestinian march that assembled at the offices of the BBC, not too far from a synagogue. I guess that the rationale is simple: once London is dotted with synagogues, human rights enthusiasts will be pushed out of the city. They will have to gather somewhere out of the green belt.

Jewish outlets complain that participants brandished ‘antisemitic badges and placards,’ such as “Israel provokes anti-Semitism.” I am puzzled. Is this really an anti-Semitic statement? If anything, it is an attempt to identify the cause of anti-Semitism.

Tory MP: ‘Nigel Farage Is Doing a Better Job than Theresa May in Leading’

A Conservative Party MP has openly expressed his approval of Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage, saying he “is certainly doing a better job than Theresa May in leading.”

Henry Smith, Member of Parliament for Crawley, told local media that he cannot “believe a word she [Prime Minister May] says” and lamented Britons having to take part in European Parliament elections at the end of this month.

“First of all these elections should never be taking place,” the Brexiteer said. “People voted to leave the European Union three years ago and it’s the fault of the Prime Minister and Parliament for not doing that.

“I won’t be surprised at all if more voters turn to the Brexit Party. Nigel Farage is certainly doing a better job than Theresa May in leading, but this is an issue larger than party politics,” he told The Argus, adding, “I don’t think anyone could do a worse job than she’s doing.”

Delingpole: Olly Robbins Killed Brexit. Belgian Citizenship Is the Least He Deserves

I’m just having a quick whip-round to which I know many readers will be eager to contribute: it’s to raise money to help Olly Robbins begin a new life in Belgium.

Robbins, as you know, is the senior civil servant — Theresa May’s chief Brexit adviser — who has done so much to try to help ensure that Brexit doesn’t happen and that Britain remains stuck in the European Union till the end of time.

Now we know why: it turns out Robbins’s secret ambition is to live at the very heart of the EU project as a Belgian citizen.

We learn this from a BBC4 behind-the-scenes documentary about Brexit seen from the perspective of the EU’s negotiators. In it the EU’s Brexit chief Guy Verhofstadt — the curtain-haired slimeball, as The Sun fondly calls him — says that Robbins begged him for asylum.

Top UK Journalist Craig Murray Blocked by Facebook After Criticising Israel

On April 23rd, the great independent investigative journalist, Craig Murray — a former British diplomat — headlined at his blog, “Condemned By Their Own Words”, and he posted there the translated-to-English transcript (excerpted below) to this Israeli radio Hebrew broadcast on April 21st, in which an Israeli Brigadier-General, named Fogel, explained why Israel’s troops are doing the right thing to shoot and even to kill Gazans who come (an unspecified) too close to the wall which separates Israel from Gaza:

Huawei and the Cameron Connection

THE Huawei scandal has been a long time coming. Huawei started selling software to British telecommunications companies in 2000. It has been supplying hardware since 2003. Within years, the US went public with warnings about Huawei’s links with Chinese espionage, so Tony Blair is the first prime minister to blame for not controlling the risks.

Here’s an irony: in May 2010, David Cameron entered No 10 after criticising Tony Blair’s highly personal, centralised and opaque decision-making. Cameron established a National Security Council (NSC) and a National Security Adviser, but the NSC brought more of the government’s decision-making into a secret forum that is dominated by the Prime Minister and his/her favoured appointees.

1922 COMMITTEE ULTIMATUM SHIFTS TO NEXT WEEK

Yesterday’s 1922 Executive Committee meeting was touted as significant but members failed to decide to initiate moves against the Prime Minister this week. Brexiteer sources close to the committee, scarred from their experience in December, tell Guido that they are hesitant to rush into a leadership challenge again until they are sure they could win it.

One said that they want to wait to “inflict maximum pain” so more of the Parliamentary Party wakes up to the urgency of dislodging the Prime Minister. With another WA vote now seemingly taking place within the next two weeks, the European Elections, and the Peterborough by election on the horizon, a source told Guido that “it’s only going to get worse”…

Pompeo threatens UK with intel sharing cut-off if they buy Huawei 5G

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has warned the UK that allowing Huawei to bid on 5G contracts could spell the end of the US-UK "special relationship" – and, apparently, the UK's membership in the Five Eyes.

"With respect to 5G, the United States has an obligation to ensure that the places we will operate, the places where American information is, the places where we have our national security risks, that they operate inside trusted networks," Pompeo said in a speech to the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office on Wednesday.

Why not make Parliament into a Holocaust Memorial?

Five British Prime Ministers, some of them renowned war criminals, united yesterday in a call to build a Holocaust Memorial in proximity to Parliament. "A sacred, national mission,” is how Theresa May described the idea and for once, I totally agree with this tragic, sad woman. I would take it further: don’t just build a holocaust shrine in Westminster, make our parliament into a Holocaust monument. We don’t really need a House of Commons; as things stand, we better get direct orders from our true rulers in Tel Aviv.

Theresa May makes 'BOLD' offer to rebel MPs - but REFUSES to resign

A Tory grassroots revolt has been threatened on June 15 if the Prime Minister does not set out specifics on when she will pack her bags and leave Downing Street. But, following Prime Minister's questions on Wednesday and growing speculation that she would announce a departure date, a Downing Street spokesperson said Mrs May is not planning to bring forward her departure saying: “She is here to deliver Brexit in phase one, and then she will leave and make way for new leadership in phase two.”

King-to-Be Charles to ‘Cherish’ His Bond With Germany Amid Brexit Turbulence

The heir to the British throne begins his big German tour on 7 May. Ahead of the visit, his address to a party in Berlin, reportedly considered to be Prince Charles’ “olive branch” over the chaos around the UK-EU’s divorce, has been leaked to the media. The royal is expected to talk about the UK’s special relations with the European powerhouse.

Facial recognition wrongly identifies public as potential criminals 96% of time, figures reveal

Eight trials carried in London between 2016 and 2018 resulted in a 96 per cent rate of “false positives” – where software wrongly alerts police that a person passing through the scanning area matches a photo on the database.

Two deployments outside the Westfield in shopping centre in Stratford last year saw a 100 per cent failure rate and monitors said a 14-year-old black schoolboy was fingerprinted after being misidentified.

Police allegedly stopped people for covering their faces or wearing hoods, and one man was fined for a public order offence after refusing to be scanned in Romford.

Scotland Yard called the trials “overt” but The Independent found shoppers unaware facial recognition was being used, and campaigners accused police of rolling out the technology “by stealth”.

Britain’s Prime Minister and the Huawei Scandal

Last Wednesday, Senior U.K. Cabinet ministers were hauled before a leak inquiry to determine who was responsible for the unprecedented reporting of highly secret discussions concerning national security.

Gavin Williamson was found to be guilty by an investigation of Theresa May’s instigation. Her letter to Williamson was not unambiguous – it categorically stated he was guilty. There was no margin for misunderstanding. As Williamson heads to the backbenches, May has made a new enemy – one who was a party whip – with all the secrets that role comes with.

But as Politico reported just a few days ago, there’s more to this story than a simple leak – even if it was about national security.

Royal Navy Building 'Littoral Strike Groups' to Help Uncle Sam Bully Third World

Most countries have coastal navies for defence against attack from the sea. A few also have ocean-going navies to control and contest control of open seas. However only the US and the UK aspire to build a third navy designed to operate in the coastal zones of other nations:

Rebelling against ‘globalism’ & a ‘new world order’ doesn’t make Farage an ‘anti-Semite’

Anti-Semites do favor conspiracies about shadowy international networks of influence, but that doesn’t mean that anyone who raises concerns about “globalism” or the emergence of a “new world order” should be labeled a neo-Nazi.

The accusation was aired against Nigel Farage in a two-part hitpiece by the Guardian, a fortnight before an EU parliamentary election in which his Brexit party is now predicted to become the biggest faction representing the UK. The British newspaper rummaged through a decade of the former UKIP leader’s interviews with Infowars host Alex Jones, and then invited activists and political adversaries to condemn him.

Churchill Sent 2 Mil Russian Refugees to Certain Death at End of WWII

We recently stumbled across this remarkable article from 1988! in the journal Imprimis, and when we read it, we could scarcely believe our eyes. When we started asking people about it, we heard different things - one person said this has been disproven, others said it was true and that they knew eye-witnesses who were deported.

Apparently the British government sued Tolstoy when he made these charges in an attempt to shut him up. We don't know if the charges are true or not, but it makes for extraordinary reading, and I appeal to people who know something about this to please help us fill out our knowledge in the comments section below. It is situations like this where our commentors are simply invaluable.

There are more MPs related to another politician than sit in the whole of the Liberal Democrat party.

It includes six married couples who sit alongside each other on the famous green leather benches, 21 MPs whose parents served in the Commons and three pairs of siblings.
