  • Vote to leave EU would 'condemn Britain to irrelevance', say historians

    More than 300 prominent historians, including Simon Schama and Niall Ferguson, are warning voters that if they choose to leave the European Union on 23 June they will condemn Britain to irrelevance. In a letter to the Guardian, the academics and writers argue that the referendum offers a chance to underscore the “irreplaceable role” Britain has played, and should continue to play, in Europe’s history. “As historians of Britain and of Europe, we believe that Britain has had in the past, and will have in the future, an irreplaceable role to play in Europe,” the letter says. “On 23 June,...

    The UK Prime Minister David Cameron on Sunday said that Turkey would only be able to join the European Union “in about the year 3000,” hitting back at claims that Britain would lose the power to vote over Turkey’s membership if his country leaves the bloc. ‘Vote Leave,’ a cross-party campaign, is urging British citizens to vote to leave the EU all together in a June 23 referendum. The ‘Leave’ campaign predicts that 142,000 Turkish citizens could head to the UK every year if Ankara joins the EU. But for Cameron, who wishes for the UK to stay in the...

    The fabric at St Faith's Church in Bacton has been identified by experts as a piece of a 16th Century dress. An examination by Historic Royal Palaces curators has strengthened a theory it formed part of a court dress. The Queen is depicted in the Rainbow Portrait wearing a similar fabric, but no documentary evidence has been found to suggest the dress was worn by her. Historians believe the monarch could have gifted the garment to one of her servants, Blanche Parry. Dating back to the last decades of the 16th Century, the altar cloth that hung in a glass...

    Longer than the Houses of Parliament and able to launch up to 108 air strike sorties per day, Britain’s new aircraft carriers will make potential enemies “think twice” about starting future wars, their senior naval officer has said. The new Queen Elizabeth Class carriers will be become Britain’s most potent conventional weapon and change the way the Royal Navy does business, Capt Simon Petitt said. The two vast 67,000 tonne vessels, which have cost £6.2bn for the pair, are the largest warships ever built in Britain. The first of the ships to be ready, HMS Queen Elizabeth, is due to...

    Hundreds of thousands of people whose personal fates could hinge on whether Britain leaves the European Union won't even have a vote in next month's referendum: Polish migrants. Among other EU citizens, up to a million Poles live and work in Britain. They're allowed to do so, because of free movement of workers in the EU. At a typical construction site in a leafy suburb of London, a brick row house is under renovation. There's a radio on for the builders, and it's all in Polish — Polish Radio London, a digital radio station that launched in 2006, two years...

    Britain risks "flames" of racial and religious conflict because of a "liberal self-delusion" over the impact of mass immigration, the former head of the equality watchdog Trevor Phillips claims today. In a startling assault on decades of official multiculturalism and diversity policy, the founding chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission argues the UK is being allowed to "sleepwalk to catastrophe" by leaders too "touchy", "smug", "complacent" and "squeamish" to talk about race. Drawing a direct parallel with Enoch Powell’s notorious "rivers of blood" speech, he likens Britain’s politicians, media and educated elite in general to the Emperor Nero...

    Councils across the UK are set to consider banning people who already own homes from buying holiday cottages after a historic vote yesterday. More than 80 per cent of voters in St Ives, Cornwall, backed proposals that will mean new housing developments will only get planning permission if homes there are reserved for full-time residents. And now councils in the Lake District, Derbyshire Dales, north Devon and the Isle of Wight are all looking at schemes to prevent outsiders buying holiday homes. But ministers are poised to oppose the ban, saying it could be regarded as unfair and discriminatory. Tory...

    LONDON — Labour candidate Sadiq Khan has been elected Mayor of London, beating his Conservative opponent Zac Goldsmith. Khan, 45, replaces flamboyant Conservative Boris Johnson after a race characterised by allegations of extremism and racism. Goldsmith called Khan — who is Muslim — a "radical" and accused him of giving "platforms, oxygen and even cover" to Islamic extremists. His allegations were echoed by prime minister David Cameron in the parliament, during Wednesdays' question time. The son of a bus driver from Pakistan, Khan is a former human rights lawyer who branded himself "the British Muslim who takes the fight...

The audience for the event, which was held on Saturday, was reportedly chosen by the American Embassy and "appeared heavily weighted to appease the ‘diversity’ brigade," according to Littlejohn. "Take another look at the audience at Barack Obama’s ‘town hall’ meeting in London," Littlejohn invited Daily Mail readers. "Is this a portrait of Britain you recognise?" I know we are ordered to celebrate ‘diversity’ at all...

After Obama took office, he returned a Churchill bust that the White House said had been lent to President Bush by Prime Minister Tony Blair. That replaced a Churchill bust that had been in the White House since the 1960s, which the administration said was being "worked on at the time and was later returned to the residence." In...

    Britain could have to wait a decade for a free trade deal with the United States if it votes to leave the European Union, U.S. President Barack Obama said on Sunday in his final salvo of a disputed foray into British domestic politics. Obama has spent the last three days in London urging Britons to stay in the EU as the British public prepares to vote on whether to remain a member of the bloc on June 23. He played on the two countries' close historic ties to warn that from a U.S. perspective, leaving the EU would be a...

In an outspoken assault last night, the London Mayor mocked the US President's controversial claim that Anglo-US trade would be hit by Brexit. And he stepped up his war of words with Obama over Winston Churchill, claiming that the wartime leader and the US both stood for democracy – and that the EU didn't. Brexit cheerleader Johnson spoke out as infighting broke out among senior figures in the 'Leave' campaign after Obama's devastating intervention.

And experts said it is at risk of becoming untreatable if the only fully effective antibiotic remaining fails.

He says schools may have to consider a 50 per cent limit on Muslim, or other minority pupils, to encourage social integration. And he says disturbing survey findings point to a growing chasm between the attitudes of many British Muslims and their compatriots....

"Nothing to do with me," the woman replied, a response that failed to satisfy Doyle. The two parted ways, which should have been the end of it. But then Doyle made the fatal mistake of recounting the incident on Twitter.

    AMID the fallout from the Brussels massacre the Belgian security forces have been loudly condemned for their apparent blunders in not foiling the Islamic terror gang. But such criticism is directed at the wrong target. The problem is that the Belgian authorities, like those in the rest of Europe, are overwhelmed by the sheer scale of extremism in our midst. Tragically, fundamentalist Islam is now part of the urban landscape. Jihadism lurks in cities across Europe wherever there are significant Muslim populations. The blame for this lies not with our security agencies but with our deluded, disloyal and destructive politicians....

    London is a more “Islamic” city than much of the Muslim world put together, a leading Muslim scholar has argued. Maulana Syed Ali Raza Rizvi, a prominent Shia cleric, who was born in Pakistan and studied in Iran, said he “feels more Islamic” in Britain than other countries because of the freedom to worship and the multicultural mix. He said Islam could be summed up as being about “love and justice”, but that the “Muslim political leadership” around the world was failing to foster this. …

    Thinkstock Eighty years ago the first Spitfire prototype flew from Eastleigh aerodrome in Hampshire. One man reveals the impact piloting this aircraft had on his life. It was always an exclusive club, and now there are only a handful of people left who can claim membership. To fly a Spitfire, especially in combat, is as close to holding a place in mythology as modern times allow. But Sqn Ldr Geoffrey Wellum DFC, still passionate and engaging at 94, cautions against hyperbole. "I didn't think of myself as glamorous but certainly I was aware it was a privilege," he says.

Students from the University have subsequently opened nine evaluation trenches at the site, exposing an area which seems to have been used...
