  • Britain voted for Brexit because it wants to be Canada — and we hate the idea

    The National Post ^ | June 24, 2016 | Colby Cosh
    In the wake of Thursday’s surprising Brexit vote and the subsequent, near-immediate collapse of British Prime Minister David Cameron, a curious phenomenon has become apparent: Canadian pundits mostly think the referendum was a disaster. There is very little sympathy here — among an intelligentsia that is heavily Anglo — being expressed for Euroskepticism and the various motivations behind the Leave campaign’s victory. I might have voted Remain myself if my great-grandparents’ generation hadn’t lit out for the great plains, but isn’t there something obviously unusual about our view of the transatlantic frenzy? Canada is a political entity defined by its...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: 51.9% of Great Britain voted to skip out of the European Union. That's a bigger number than Americans who voted for Obama. And Obama went over there in April and lectured them not to do this. It's been a bad couple of days for Barack Hussein O. The Supreme Court shafts him on immigration. The British vote to leave the European Union. What else happened out there that's not great for Obama? Oh, well. There are three things. I can't remember them. Anyway, great to have you here, folks, as we wrap up another week of broadcast...

    Regardless of what you think of Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric, and his uncompromising talk of walls and bans, does anybody really doubt after this shock Brexit result that he’s right about the levels of anger? It may not be obvious to the political and media elites living in their hallowed, protected homes in privileged areas. But travel to the north of England, or to the middle of America, and you will find very real fury with government and very real concern over the impact of perceived immigration control failures. There’s an increasing large gulf between the politically correct ‘cool’ and ‘establishment’...

As a city, we are grateful for the enormous contribution you make, and that will not change as a result of this referendum. There are nearly one million European citizens living in London today, and they bring huge benefits to our city - working hard, paying taxes, working in our public services...

    Britain leaving the EU means trouble ahead for Germany — and its hardest task will be convincing the Brits to drop a self-defeating ideology, a leading foreign policy expert told The Local. German business has a lot of vested interest in British markets, explains Josef Janning, head of the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR) in Berlin. And that means Germany will have its work cut out negotiating a settlement which gives Britain access to the single market after it leaves the European Union. […] Being integrated into the single market will mean the UK will have to “swallow the...

    Why did they do it? That, we’ll pick apart in the next few weeks. I think that Leave genuinely ran the better campaign, more hopeful and upbeat. Immigration mattered a great deal – although one YouGov poll ranked it third behind democracy and the economy. It’s possible that voters grasped the essential point about this referendum better than we the commentators did. It was a vote of confidence in Britain. Should we run our affairs or should we delegate it to foreign bureaucrats? When I was leaving my polling station, I said to a chap: “I found voting quite emotional.”...

You may say that there is no such thing as the “soul” of England: We may imagine her as Britannia, but a country is not a person. The only corporate personality, I am reliably told by R. R. Reno, is the Church. Countries are not persons, said the Oracle. No, maybe not—but they are analogous to persons, and they have some analog of a...

    If you’re a casual football fan, there’s a chance you won’t be familiar with the 1983-84 season in Romania’s Divizia C, Serie VIII. It was so tight that in a 16-team league, with two points for a win, only two points separated second and 15th. Some teams avoided relegation on goal difference – and finished in the top half of the division. On the final day, the as-it-stands table probably exploded after 10 minutes. At least there was only one as-it-stands table. We’ll need at least two to make some kind of sense of this week’s matches at Euro 2016:...

    Why is America so alarmed by Brexit? Lest the reader be in doubt, remind yourself of this. Never before has a sitting US president visited a fellow democracy in a bid to sway an election. Nor, until now, have 13 former US secretaries of state and defence risked addressing a letter to a foreign electorate with the same motive. Ditto eight former Treasury secretaries and five former supreme commanders of NATO. Not only has the US establishment broken its non-interference rule over Brexit, it is stamping on its smithereens.

Crohn’s is an incurable disease which causes inflammation of the lining of any part of the gastrointestinal tract. It can cause abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss, and malnutrition — which can become life-threatening. Many people with Crohn’s will have at least one surgery as part of treatment, either to widen a part of the intestine or to remove portions of the intestines or the colon and/or rectum.

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...

The report is now being considered by Lord Hall, the director general, who could make changes to make religious output less “disproportionate”, the Sunday Times (£) reported.

And that is the source of the problem. “My neighbours were fine, but when they came to know I was Ahmadi, their attitude changed,” Sultan explains....“They would no longer reply to my greeting As-salāmu ‘alaykum [peace be upon you]” with Wa’alaykumu s-salām [and upon you peace].” When Asad Shah,...

    resident Barack Obama, who can now count the remainder of his Presidency in months (nine months to be exact) is going overseas to, if not mend fences, then to attempt to fix large holes in his legacy. He will be traveling to Saudi Arabia, England, and Germany, allies all. When it comes to American allies, we tend to believe that they should act in a way that furthers America's interests. In the case of the Saudi's we sell them military equipment and share intelligence and we expect the Saudis to use them to keep Iran at bay. We want the...

    I have a close friend, Mark, who was born in Scotland and has lived in England since he was ten years old and he has shared with me how Muslims are steadily destroying his country.Over twenty years ago, a large number of Muslims, many from Albania, began immigrating to England. Many of them stuck together, moving into the same cities, just like they are doing here in the US.The Muslims claimed that they had no intention of changing English culture or laws. Yet, Mark told me that as their numbers grew in some of the cities, they wasted little time...

    It is one of the oldest offices in the liturgy of the Catholic Church. It features some of the most beautiful music ever written. So why have so many of us never heard of it?Why am l completely in the dark about Tenebrae?During Holy Week and the Sacred Triduum, the three days leading up to Easter, English Catholics have a wonderful selection of Masses and services happening in the traditional rite across the country. Looking at the list though, l realised that Tenebrae — sung from ‘Spy Wednesday’ in Holy Week — has completely passed me and l suspect many...

    A mother-of-one who developed cravings for sponge during her pregnancy has spoken out about her unusual addiction to foam. Vicky Cullen, 28, not only eats the padding in her own armchair but buys washing-up sponges to snack on and likes to add foam to her recipes when cooking. The single mother from Wakefield, South Yorkshire, estimated she has eaten her way through 2000 sponges since she developed the obsession when she was five-months pregnant with her daughter Olivia, now five. Vicky, who has been diagnosed with pica, an eating disorder which means adults ingest non-nutritive substances, said: 'It's weird to...

    The number of children being given medical treatment for "gender confusion" has risen 1000 percent over the past five years. The NHS's Gender Identity Disorder Service treated 1,013 children, between April and December last year, a freedom of information request by The Sun revealed. In 2010, just 97 cases were recorded. The Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust, based in London, is the only clinic in the U.K. that provides such treatment. But as demand for the treatment increases, the Trust may seek to offer treatment in their Leeds, Brighton and Exeter clinics. At the clinic those under 18 years of...
