    More than 1 million foreigners living in Britain will be banned from voting in the EU referendum, the Conservatives have announced, in a significant boost to Eurosceptic campaigners.

The EU referendum bill, which will be announced this week after the Queen's Speech, will make clear that only British, Irish and Commonwealth citizens who are resident in the UK will be allowed to vote. It comes after Eurosceptic MPs confronted ministers over the...

    Brussels’ metropolitan area is a quarter Muslim. The number of Muslims in Brussels—where roughly half of the number of Muslims in Belgium currently live—has reached 300,000, which means that the self-styled “Capital of Europe” is now one of the most Islamic cities in Europe.In 2013, Muslims made up approximately 26% of the population of metropolitan Brussels, followed by Rotterdam (25%), Amsterdam (24%), Antwerp (17%), The Hague (14%) and Utrecht (13%), according to a panoply of research. That means Jewish kindergartens are in trouble in a city with a growing dominance by the Master Faith. A Belgian insurance company has refused...

    A solar energy plane made the world's first international flight powered by the sun on Friday to show the potential for pollution-free air travel. The Solar Impulse took off from an airfield at Payerne in western Switzerland on Friday morning and landed at Brussels airport after a 13-hour flight. "The objective is to demonstrate what we can do with existing technology in terms of renewable energy and energy savings," project co-founder and pilot Andre Borschberg told Reuters by telephone during the flight. Borschberg believes such solar-harnessing technology can be used to power cars and homes. "It is symbolic to be...

    The chemicals were stored in vats in the basement of an Egyptian restaurant in downtown Brussels. The suicide bomber, a former soccer player who had fallen into drug use and petty crime, had been selected. The target, the American Embassy in Paris, had been scouted. All that remained was the signal from Osama bin Laden's operatives in Afghanistan to strike. The nod was to come from a Frenchman of Algerian origin who was on his way back from training in Afghanistan. But he was arrested in transit, and he talked, spilling to French interrogators details of what could have been ...

    Fourteen people arrested in Belgium on suspicion of plotting to free a convicted al-Qaeda member from jail have been released without charge. The suspects were released for lack of evidence after 24 hours in custody. They were suspected of plotting to free Tunisian national Nizar Trabelsi, jailed in Belgium in 2003 for planning to attack US targets. In spite of the releases, the interior ministry said heightened security measures would remain in place. The federal prosecutor's office said searches at suspects' homes had yielded no explosives, weapons or other evidence to persuade the court to keep them in jail. "According...

    The European Investigation Order, a term with the genuine ring of totalitarianism, is the latest project to be adopted by the Eurocrats in charge of the Brussels Empire. In essence, it is a measure to place the entire continent of Europe under a system of policing superior to every countrys police force. Prosecutors from any and every country will be granted extraordinary powers, enabling them to bug communications wherever they please, have access to bank accounts and to DNA records, even in matters that are not a crime in the country concerned. The national police forces will be powerless to...

    BRUSSELS The European Commission fined 17 steel producers a total of 518 million euros (635 million dollars) on Wednesday for running a price-fixing cartel, with industry giant ArcelorMittal hit the hardest. The European Union's competition watchdog said the companies ran a cartel that lasted 18 years to fix the prices of prestressing steel, the long, curled steel wires used in construction to make foundations, balconies or bridges.

    The Belgian Bishops have opened their churches to illegal immigrants in order to pressurize the Belgian authorities to allow the immigrants to stay in the country. Most of the immigrant squatters in the churches are Muslims. They display banners in the church showing the name of Allah (picture taken in the church of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour, Brussels). The Belgian Bishops are so ignorant that they do not see what is going on: their churches are being turned into mosques before their very eyes. The Muslim squatters hold Islamic prayer services in the church. The altar has been moved...

    Brussels doesnt stand for freedom, it sits for its own self-aggrandizement, social engineering, the tyranny of legalisms, and diplomatic argy-bargy. "Joe Biden. With the exception of broken teleprompter, these are the scariest two words in the White House communications shop. One advantage Biden has over Obama is he can always claim he was just being Joe whenever he says something controversial. In this way, Biden reminds me a bit of the late PLO leader Yasser Arafat, who would say nice things in English and evil things in Arabic. The press would largely ignore the Arabic and take him at his...
