  • Did The British Government Just Ask Facebook to “Influence” the Election?

    In possibly the most bizarre behavior that many of us are likely to see from a supposed Democratic government, a Government official has asked Facebook to begin taking down “Fake News” faster and faster because people who use it as a news source “might be misled”. Chairman of the Commons culture, media and sport select committee, Damian Collins suggested that this Fake News could pose a Threat to the “the integrity of democracy”. He cited as his motivating factor the recent events in the US election (as reported in the Guardian): “The risk is what happened in America,the top 20...
  • The Enormous Contradictions Behind the Mass-Immigration Debate or How to Win Any Argument With Style

    We have all heard the arguments and the figures relating to the benefits of mass-immigration from poorer countries to richer countries. The advocates have shown us “irrefutable figures” that detail the economic benefits; they have berated us for our lack of morality. And the sad truth is, the argument can never be won by throwing statistics and numbers back at them. Because numbers, as they know all too well, can be interpreted almost any way you wish. The only way to win is to show up their arguments for what they really are: weak veils for an agenda that is...

    Nigel Farage’s party, UKIP, are going into the UK General Election on June 8th focusing on an “Integration Strategy”. The third party of British politics will be asking voters to back policies that even just a few years ago would have been dismissed out of hand. New UKIP leader, Paul Nuttall, will be leading the charge to deal with mass Islamic immigration by ensuring that British Muslims and new arrivals will be fully integrated into British society. Here are their four lead policies: Sharia Law Despite having no formal or legal rights in Britain, Sharia Courts do operate in heavily...

    Are you handy enough that if a lightbulb went out in your home you’d be able to change it? Believe it or not, one in five people aren’t so skilled. In fact, a new survey of people in the United Kingdom finds not only do about 20 percent of people not know how to change a bulb — the same number aren’t sure how to boil an egg, either.

    Sometimes a woman's deepest thoughts are best left unsaid, but the Princess Royal has never regretted once describing herself as 'not everyone's idea of a fairytale princess'. It was a deliberate message and the moment she laid the ground rules for her life as a professional royal. But everyone knew what she was getting at all those years ago. In a celebrity-besotted world inhabited by pretty people endlessly proclaiming the message that physical beauty brings instant happiness, Anne was having to deal with being a real princess who is not blessed with chocolate-box prettiness.
  • EU Demands UK Pay Turkey for Migrants and All Brexit-Related Costs in Euros

    The European Commission is plotting to force the UK into paying even more for Brexit, burdening Britain with all related divorce costs and risks, according to draft negotiating directives. The potentially huge bill must also be paid in euros rather than pounds, the European Union’s (EU) unelected executive arm said, meaning the UK will bear all the currency risk. The list of demands sees little room for compromise; it includes the costs of relocating any EU institution and the UK’s share of a massive aid package given to Turkey in return for easing the migrant crisis.

    When voters in Birmingham received their ballots through the door for the upcoming “Metro” Mayoral Elections taking place on next month, many were surprised to see the “Hammer and Sickle” logo and a Communist party candidate. Apparently the deaths of 150,000,000 odd people has not been quite enough to shame activists into silence. And what may be even more surprising, is that the “Communist Party of Great Britain” never actually went away. It has been operating openly and working on the sidelines of British politics for almost 100 years. On May 4th, Graham John Stevenson will stand on the boxes...

    Schools have been told they should give transgender pupils a cake to celebrate their “transition”, as experts warn that teachers must be trained to deal with an “explosion” of students who no longer identity with their sex. Delegates at the Association of Teachers and Lecturers conference this week were told that changing attitudes have resulted in a "huge" surge in the number of transgender and non-binary people coming forward. “Five years ago, hardly anyone in school or in university would come across a young trans person, but it’s changed substantially,” said Terry Reed, a campaigner for transsexual rights who co-founded...

    Gun crime offences in London surged by 42% in the last year, according to official statistics. The Met Police's figures showed there were 2,544 gun crime offences from April 2016 to April 2017 compared to 1,793 offences from 2015 until 2016. Knife crime also increased by 24% with 12,074 recorded offences from 2016 to 2017. The Met said although crime rates were rising they remained at a much lower level than five years ago. Scotland Yard registered annual rises across a number of serious offence categories in the past 12 months, following several years of falls. The total number of...

    A Government spokesperson said: “Overnight, the US has taken military action against the Syrian regime, targeting the airfield in Shayrut which was used to launch the chemical weapons attack earlier this week. “The UK Government fully supports the US action, which we believe was an appropriate response to the barbaric chemical weapons attack launched by the Syrian regime, and is intended to deter further attacks.” The news comes after the US launched 59 Tomahawk missiles on a Syrian airfield in a show of power against Bashar al-Assad. In a statement, President Trump said: “Tonight I ordered a targeted military strike...

    * British multiculturalists are feeding Islamic fundamentalism. Muslims do not need to become the majority in the UK; they just need gradually to Islamize the most important cities. The change is already taking place. * British personalities keep opening the door to introducing Islamic sharia law. One of the leading British judges, Sir James Munby, said that Christianity no longer influences the courts and these must be multicultural, which means more Islamic. Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, and Chief Justice Lord Phillips, also suggested that the English law should "incorporate" elements of sharia law. * British universities are...

    British Prime Minister Theresa May on Sunday insisted that she would "never" allow Gibraltar to slip from British control against the wishes of Gibraltarians as the issue took centre-stage in early Brexit wranglings. May told Chief Minister of Gibraltar Fabian Picardo that "we will never enter into arrangements under which the people of Gibraltar would pass under the sovereignty of another state against their freely and democratically expressed wishes." Her comments came as Spain pledged it would not close its border post-Brexit with the 6.7-square-kilometre (2.6-square-mile) British overseas territory on the southern tip of Spain.

    In the week Britain began the formal process of leaving the European Union with the triggering of Article 50, the Home Office put a contract out to tender for the “design, production and personalisation of the UK passport” post-2019. High-level discussions have already taken place with potential bidders to reintroduce the traditional navy design, below, as a backdrop to the iconic gold lion and unicorn royal coat of arms.

    Prince Charles tried to halt the American invasion of Afghanistan to ‘honour’ Ramadan. He made the plea to the US ambassador to London four weeks into the huge military operation launched after the 9/11 terror attacks. The startled envoy asked the prince, ‘Sir, are you really serious?’ according to a book being serialised from today by the Daily Mail. Charles’s intervention appears to have been made behind the back of then prime minister Tony Blair. Last night an officer who led UK forces in Afghanistan said the prince’s request was absurd. Critics described it as grossly irresponsible. Politicians in the...

    The “slight uplift” in Islamophobia following the Westminster terror attack may be attributable to the authorities actively encouraging Muslims to come forward with allegations following so-called “trigger events”.The statement which New Scotland Yard sent along with its figures suggests the rise may not be due to a genuine increase in Islamophobia, but could instead be due to a “community engagement plan” which sees the authorities actively encourage Muslims to come forward with allegations following what they describe as “trigger events." The statement also revealed the sheer scale of the Met’s efforts to boost hate crime recordings – in line with...

Aside from his half-brother, the North Korean leader also ordered the killing of two men who helped with the defection of Thae Yong-ho, the North Korean diplomat in London who defected to the South last year. According to Radio Free Asia on Wednesday, UK's Minister of State of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office - Joyce Anelay - said authorities will investigate whether there's a credible threat to the safety of a British national or resident.

    History was made today as the Article 50 letter confirming Britain's divorce from the EU was finally delivered - with Theresa May pledging to create a 'brighter future' outside the club. The UK's envoy Sir Tim Barrow handed the formal notification to European Council president Donald Tusk in Brussels. As the point of no return was reached, the Prime Minister told the House of Commons that she was 'giving effect to the democratic will of the UK people'.

    Rotherham grooming victim Sammy Woodhouse has said she was “betrayed” by authorities in the town, who failed to act on the violent child rapist for fear of “being perceived as racist”. Now campaigning for other victims of sexual abuse, she said she was “just one of dozens of girls… exploited and viewed as white trash” in Rotherham by Arshid Hussain, a drug dealer ten years her senior from a notorious family of criminals. “He took everything from me: my loving family, my future, my friends”, Woodhouse told the Mail, recalling that she had “just turned 14” when the then 24...

    The EU has proven itself to be hostile o Britain’s interests. As the President of the EU Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker has said “other countries will see what happens to the UK, and will want to stay in the EU” and “Deserters will not be welcomed with open arms”: A clear and direct threat against Britain’s exit. The EU will make life as hard as possible for the nation and the people. Already, Juncker is asking for a £50 Billion “divorce settlement”. What should Britain do? The answer is not overly complex. We should have zero negotiations with the EU. Britain...
