    Remember the Charlie Gard case? Parents of the young child had to watch the National Health Service in the United Kingdom allow him to die after refusing to allow the child to leave the country for experimental treatment. The diagnosis was too dire and the case considered too terminal for parental wishes to be considered.A ghastly rerun is taking place, this time with Alfie Evans, only this time the diagnosis is unclear — and he’s surviving on his own after a court ordered him removed from a ventilator: Mr Justice Hayden also appeared to rule out his family’s wishes...

LONDON, April 20, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The UK Supreme Court will not allow the parents of Alfie Evans to take their sick child to a hospital in Italy. The ruling means that a previous court's decision that Alfie be removed from his ventilator on Monday, April 23 remains in effect. Removing the baby from ventilation will likely cause his death.   Three Supreme Court justices denied an appeal to the baby’s parents today, saying the hospital must be "free to do what has been...
  • Enoch Powell’s Immigration Speech, 50 Years Later

    National Review ^ | April 19, 2018 | Douglas Murray
    The 20th of this month marks a significant anniversary in Britain. For it is the 50th anniversary of what is probably the most famous — and certainly the most notorious — speech by any mainstream politician since the war. On April 20, 1968, Enoch Powell gave a speech to the Conservative Political Centre in Birmingham on the subject of Commonwealth migration, integration, and possible re-emigration. It was a carefully chosen moment, and a carefully chosen intervention from a man who was then the shadow defense minister in the Conservative opposition of Edward Heath. Powell knew what he was about to...

    Recorded machete attacks in the UK have shot up by nearly five times in just three years, with the majority in the capital, London. The huge number of crimes committed with the deadly, sword-like weapons means there is an average of 15 a day in the UK, or one every 90 minutes. Figures uncovered using freedom of information requests by the Daily Mail show that police dealt with 928 crimes involving machetes in the last two months of 2017. London saw the bulk, with 425 of the attacks. There were 99 in Greater Manchester, 77 in the West Midlands, and...

    When Enoch Powell died in 1998, he was mourned across the political spectrum. Tony Blair hailed him as ‘one of the great figures of 20th-century British politics’. Lady Thatcher remarked that ‘there will never be another Enoch’. And Old Labour’s Tony Benn, a friend throughout his 36 years in Parliament, attended his funeral at St Margaret’s Church, in the grounds of Westminster Abbey. Whatever one thought of Powell’s often highly divisive views — in particular the notorious ‘Rivers of Blood’ speech about immigration, for which he was rightly accused of stirring up racial hatred — friend and foe agreed he...

    A British organization has launched an ambitious project aimed at restoring old, abandoned synagogues across Europe and bringing them back to community life, and commemorating communities that were wiped out in the Holocaust. The Foundation of Jewish Heritage has identified 3,300 pre-Second World War buildings used for Jewish prayer, of which at least 19 could be brought back into use - out of an estimated total of 17,000 that were in use before the Second World War. The remaining buildings, of which just 718 are still being used as synagogues, have been carefully catalogued based on their artistic, urban, and...

    Shortly after Theresa May declared that she could act in Syria without approval from Parliament, the Telegraph is reporting that the prime minister has ordered UK submarines to travel within striking range of Syria, and adds that strikes could begin as early as Thursday night. With the US's Truman carrier still a month away, the "coalition" will rely on UK and French ships. US air support will likely also be involved, suggesting that any attack on Syria may be based on a joint UK-French naval operation, with US air support. Meanwhile, as reported earlier, President Bashar al-Assad has already started...

AirLive said the alert was issued by Eurocontrol this evening for a “possible launch … within the next 72 hours”.

    As Twitchy has reported, despite its comprehensive gun control laws, London has overtaken New York in murders, and the reason is knife crime. London Mayor Sadiq Khan made it clear Sunday that “knife control” is in full effect: The Metropolitan Police launched “Operation Sceptre” in 2015 to combat knife crime, and in March, the Regents Park Police tweeted a photo of items found and safely disposed of during an Operation Sceptre weapon sweep. The photo was picked up an went viral Monday in light of England’s reinvigorated push against knife attacks.

But instead of “The end of snow” (New York Times, 2014), Britain has gotten hit with a long and very cold winter. The tabloid Daily Star sensationalizes the cold snap with “studies” that come up with the figure of 48,000 “excess” deaths blamed in the cold snap. Quite frankly, one can concoct all sorts of studies to “prove” or “demonstrate” all sorts of dubious propositions. So,...
