    UK police have launched a murder investigation after the death of Russian businessman Nikolai Glushkov in south-west London. Mr Glushkov was found dead at his home in New Malden on 12 March. A post-mortem examination revealed Mr Glushkov, who was 68, died from "compression to the neck". There is, at this stage, no evidence linking the death to the attempted murder of a former Russian spy and his daughter in Salisbury, police say.

    Unilever, Britain's third-biggest company, will scrap its London corporate headquarters and make Rotterdam its sole legal home in a blow to Prime Minister Theresa May's government ahead of Brexit. The maker of Dove soap and Ben & Jerry's ice cream last year announced a review of its dual-headed structure after fighting off a $143 billion takeover offer from Kraft Heinz.

    Putin enemy found dead in London eight days after Skripal poisoning, as counter-terror police launch investigation ounter-terrorism police have opened an investigation into the “unexplained” death on British soil of an arch enemy of Vladimir Putin, just eight days after the nerve gas assassination attempt on a Russian double agent. Nikolai Glushkov, 68, the right-hand man of the deceased oligarch Boris Berezovsky, Mr Putin’s one-time fiercest rival, was found dead at his London home on Monday. A Russian media source said Glushkov, the former boss of the state airline Aeroflot, who said he feared he was on a Kremlin hit-list,...

    Alexander Downer — the Australian diplomat whose tip to the FBI about a London pub conversation led to the massive probe of allegations of collusions between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia — is himself closely tied to a Chinese firm experts say is deeply involved in espionage against America. Just last month, all six top U.S. intelligence bosses warned Americans against using digital telecommunications equipment produced by Chinese smartphone producer Huawei.

    Rapes are soaring in Britain’s multicultural capital under Labour Mayor Sadiq Khan — but police claim they have no idea what could be behind the increase. 7,613 rapes were recorded in Sadiq Khan’s London in the 12 months to the end of January 2018, compared with 6,392 over the previous year — a rise of almost 20 per cent, the Evening Standard reports. Some have attempted to attribute the rise to victims being more confident in coming forward, but Khan’s Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, Sophie Linden, has admitted that the figures could point to a legitimate “increase in...
  • John Kerry Sides With the Palestinians, Tells Them to Ignore Trump

    Former Secretary of State John Kerry recently made a trip to London, where he met with Palestinian official Hussein Agha. Agha is close to Palestinian Leader Mahmoud Abbas, who walked away from peace talks after the U.S. announced an embassy move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. During the meeting, Kerry reportedly told Agha that Abbas should essentially ignore President Trump. He also strangely suggested Trump wouldn't be in office by the end of the year.

    Grab the popcorn. Hostilities between feminists and transsexual militants are heating up. Feminists don’t want men pretending to be women swimming in a girls-only pond on London’s Hampstead Heath: Members of the Mayday 4 Women group picketed a meeting of the Kenwood Ladies’ Pond Association who held a closed meeting to discuss the situation. The pond is still for officially for women only, but it all depends on what the word “women” means. It is considered transphobic to say that it means “women.” The City of London Corporation who are responsible for the facility said self-identifying trans women were now...

    To understand the development of Islam in Western countries, I make a habit of visiting Muslim-majority areas such as Lakemba in Australia, Lodi in California, and Lunel in France. But London, England, is unique in the extent of its Islamic impress. Muslim-majority areas typically consist of poor, unattractive housing projects, remote from the city center, which long ago were abandoned by their original indigenous, working-class populations. They often feature men sitting around cafes and women cooped up at home. They suffer from a range of social pathologies, including unemployment, criminal gangs, and drug-trafficking. London too has such areas, and they...

    During the conversation, according to the report, Kerry asked Agha to convey a message to Abbas and ask him to "hold on and be strong.".... Tell him, he told Agha, "that he should stay strong in his spirit and play for time, that he will not break and will not yield to President Trump's demands." ....According to Kerry, Trump will not remain in office for a long time. It was reported that within a year there was a good chance that Trump would not be in the White House. He asked Abbas, through Agha, not to attack the US or...

    After Princess Eugenie's engagement news was revealed to the world by her thrilled parents, official portraits of the happy couple were released to mark the occasion - and offer that all-important first glimpse of the bride-to-be's ring. The 27-year-old Princess' long-term boyfriend Jack Brooksbank, 31, popped the question in Nicaragua earlier this month with the unusual ring; a padparadscha sapphire surrounded by diamonds. The sparkler bears a striking similarity to the one Eugenie's mother, Sarah Ferguson, was presented with by her ex-husband Prince Andrew, when they became engaged back in 1986 - although Fergie's ring was set with a pink...
  • The new US embassy is a plastic-wrapped wonder Trump wouldn't visit

    The discovery that I share an opinion with Donald Trump is a new experience for me, one which I don’t expect to reoccur soon, but when he took to Twitter last week to explain why he would not be opening his country’s new London embassy, I confess, I could rather see his point. **** I can’t argue with his description of the recently vacated former embassy, built in 1960, as “perhaps the best located and finest in London”. Extending a façade across an entire side of Grosvenor Square in Mayfair, this was the first purpose-built embassy in the capital.

    During his testimony before Congress in August, Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson said that the FBI had a source inside the Trump campaign who gave credence to the infamous dossier the company created for the Democrats. He repeated the claim in a New York Times op-ed on January 2. But today, Fusion GPS is retracting that statement, saying that Simpson "mischaracterized" the source. Washington Times: Then suddenly, as quick as the headlines went up, some one close to Fusion was waving off reporters. Mr. Simpsonhad “mischaracterized” the source. It was not some one on the Trump inside, but apparently an...

    Supporters of US President Donald Trump have disrupted a speech by Sadiq Khan and called for the London Mayor to be arrested. Mr Khan was about to start speaking to the Fabian Society in London when he was disrupted by protesters from a group called the White Pendragons who shouted pro-Trump and pro-Brexit slogans. In a tweet on Friday, Mr Khan said Mr Trump had got the message that he was "not welcome" in London after the President cancelled a planned visit to open the new US embassy. In a video posted on social media, one protester could be heard...

    A discussion on U.S. President Donald Trump’s comments on developing nations and his decision to cancel his planned working visit to the UK in February soon turned to the failures of “shithole” London city mayor Sadiq Khan, as Breitbart London editor in chief Raheem Kassam was interviewed on Britain’s Sky News. Dismissing the President’s excuse that he didn’t want to visit London because the new U.S. embassy had been a bad financial deal, Kassam — the author of the 2017 bestselling book No Go Zones — laid the blame squarely on the shoulders of leading Labour party figures including the...

    Reason I canceled my trip to London is that I am not a big fan of the Obama Administration having sold perhaps the best located and finest embassy in London for “peanuts,” only to build a new one in an off location for 1.2 billion dollars. Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!

    House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes has issued a subpoena to David Kramer, a former State Department official who, in late November 2016, traveled to London to receive a briefing and a copy of the Trump dossier from its author, former British spy Christopher Steele. Kramer then returned to the U.S. to give the document to Sen. John McCain. Kramer is a senior fellow at the McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University. McCain later took a copy of the dossier to the FBI's then-director, James Comey. But the FBI already had the document; Steele himself gave the...
