  • 11 rifles and thousands of bullets lost or stolen from Army, MOD admits amid fears they could be in hands of criminals

    Over 1,000 bullets and 11 guns have been lost or stolen from the Army, the Ministry of Defence has admitted amid fears they could be in the hands of criminals. The missing munitions, including eight rifles and 1,000 rounds of ammunition taken in one burglary from a Merseyside army cadet facility, all disappeared within twelve months, a Sky News investigation found. The news comes just weeks after the Telegraph revealed hundreds of unexploded munitions had been found in Scotland over the past three years. Land mines, grenades and flares have all been recovered, including several in the city centres of...
  • The British Effort to Kill American Football (A History Lesson)

    11/27/2019 4:03:03 AM PST · by Kaslin · 17 replies ^ | November 27, 2019 | Terry Jeffrey
    "That the conduct of England with regard to America has been altogether unjustifiable." This was the resolution the Debating Society at Marlborough College -- the British prep school later attended by the current Duchess of Cambridge -- took up on Oct. 23, 1865. Edward H. Moeran argued against the proposition and won -- with 18 judges voting for him and only 8 voting against. Fortunately, he was not as persuasive when he later tried to terminate American football. Moeran, born in Ireland, captained the rugby and cricket teams at Marlborough and then attended Trinity College Dublin. In 1870, he moved...

    Bishops push back against graphic pro-LGBT sex ed curriculumLONDON ( - Four-year-olds in English schools are to have lessons in "how we touch our own and each other's bodies" under the new Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) program which will become compulsory in September 2020. The "All About Me" sex education curriculum for Reception (age 4–5) instructs teachers to give children "the opportunity to explore a variety of different touch and feel sensations" and allow them "to decide which they like and dislike." Children in this age group will also be taught the names of private parts like "penis and...

    A number of Conservative Party members have been suspended for posting or endorsing Islamophobic material online. The BBC highlighted over 20 new cases to the party, who said all those found to be members who shared or supported anti-Muslim posts on Twitter and Facebook were suspended immediately. However, the officials would not reveal the exact number of members suspended. A Conservative spokesman said the party was now "establishing the terms" of an investigation into the wider issue. But Baroness Warsi, the former Tory chairwoman who was the UK's first female Muslim cabinet minister, accused her party of "backsliding". There have...
  • Hoo boy. The UK “gender stereotype” rules are up and running

    Following complaints from the public over the past couple of years, the UK Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) has implemented new rules for television and print advertising. The purpose of these regulations is to eliminate “harmful gender stereotyping” in ads. If that phrase leaves you scratching your head, don’t worry. You’re not alone.In any event, the first two “harmful” ads have been banned from the airwaves. They were from Volkswagen and Philadelphia cream cheese. So what were they depicting? Child abuse? Violence against women? Racism? Nope. One was a shot of a woman sitting in the park next to a baby...

    When a dozen of conservatism’s best minds take on Socialism and expose it for the utopian fraud it is, attention must be paid. In a brief foreword to a special issue of National Review, Editor-in-Chief Richard Lowry admitted that many conservatives thought socialism in America had been “vanquished” after the collapse of Soviet Communism 30 years ago. But as T. S. Eliot insisted, “There is no such thing as a Lost Cause because there is no such thing as a Gained Cause.” The experts examine socialism in its many guises, beginning with Charles Cooke’s blunt assessment that socialism is not...

    Full title: "'Lion of London Bridge' who was stabbed eight times as he confronted terrorist attackers 'is put on anti-terror watch list after far-right extremists contacted him'" The 'Lion of London Bridge' who was hailed a hero for fighting off knife-wielding jihadis during the terror attack said he is on an anti-terror watch list after being contacted by far-right anti-Islam supporters. Roy Larner, 49, screamed, 'f*** you, I'm Millwall,' as he took on the knife murderers when they struck in June 2017 while he was enjoying a pint in the Black & Blue restaurant in Borough Market, in Southwark, south-east London.

    This past weekend, Joe Biden appeared to stick his foot in his mouth when he told supporters at a campaign stop about a conversation he allegedly had with British Prime Minister Theresa May. If his account of their chat is accurate, the PM may have inadvertently stuck her nose into our presidential elections and put a ding in our “special relationship” with her nation. And the timing of this news isn’t particularly ideal given that it comes only a couple of weeks before President Trump’s first official visit to Great Britain. (Washington Examiner) Joe Biden’s claim that Theresa May confided...

    A glimpse inside the fairy-tale world of deradicalization. If only we could squeeze Shamima Begum (hijab, prayer mat, Koran and all) into H.G. Wells’ time machine and catapult the ISIS bride to the era of Guy Fawkes, we might just about solve our problem with jihadi Judases returning to Britain. In merry olde England, we’d truss up a traitor and get a bad-tempered horse to yank him across hard ground. Then we’d then string him on IKEA-like gallows, disembowel, behead and carve the quisling into four quarters. The fairer sex didn’t get hung, drawn and quartered—a female turncoat was simply...

    It should be noted that the UK retired, and then decided to build, two carriers about the same time that Russian aggression was picking up again following Moscow’s short 2008 invasion of Georgia. Speaking of Russia, the Kremlin’s navy has only one carrier, the aged Admiral Kuznetsov, which was launched in 1985 and which just finished a refit this year and a combat deployment to Syria. While there supporting Russian operations, the ship struggled to remain operational and reports claimed that at least two fighters were lost.

    The disgusting arrest in England of independent photo-journalist Tommy Robinson by the UK's corrupted authorities is a stark and glaring example that exposes just how cruel has become the country of America's heritage. That country's language police have been so degraded that the word "Asian" is used to conceal the identity of Muslim gang groomers on trial for rape. It was Robinson’s coverage of this trial that caused his arrest and imprisonment. Here is a website that reveals what 12 and 13 year old British girls are suffering at the hands of Muslim adult males. Yet the authorities protect the...

    A theatre agent has apologised for a comment she made in a private forum that criticised a casting call for only black, Asian or minority ethnic actors and claiming the decision put “talented white performers out of work”. Gemma Hamilton, who runs Lowy Hamilton Artists, made the remarks in a forum on Facebook, in which she said she was “bored of breakdowns asking for BAME actors” because it “adds that va-va-voom to the cast list”. “And now I see a breakdown for BAME-only that are actor/musos. It’s putting talented ‘white’ performers out of work. I think it stinks,” she wrote....

    A COUPLE have become Britain’s oldest new parents — only to have their baby taken from them by social services. The 63-year-old mum and her partner, 65, are “devastated” after bosses stepped in and took the child from them. The couple’s age is thought to be a factor in fears over the one-year-old’s well-being. A source said: “They are devastated. Social services have been dealing with them since last year and told them to make improvements in how the child was being looked after. “They then decided that the called-for improvements had not happened and took the child into care.”...

    LONDON—A “potentially dangerous situation” was defused by London police Monday morning, as a toddler cutting Play-Doh with a toy plastic pocketknife was tackled to the ground and apprehended by a Specialist Firearms Command unit, sources confirmed at the scene. The toddler was happily cutting a lump of green-ish Play-Doh with his official Play-Doh pocketknife in his mum’s London flat when a Metro Police unit kicked his door down and charged in, bellowing for everyone to get down on the ground. Several other operatives dove through windows and rappelled from skylights, tossing tear gas and breaching doors throughout the home...
