    LONDON — Britain’s Parliament grabbed control Monday of the government’s efforts to leave the European Union, challenging the country’s political traditions and inflicting on Prime Minister Theresa May a rebuke not suffered by any recent predecessor. By stepping into the process known as Brexit and trying to define an alternative path, lawmakers could create a constitutional showdown in Britain, where the government normally controls the agenda in Parliament, especially on its most pressing issues. Parliament passed an amendment giving itself the power to vote on alternatives to the government’s Brexit plan. Its attempt to take control of the process came...

    3,000 Muslim children from the UK attend madrasas in Pakistan that preach jihad violence What could possibly go wrong? Anyone who looks askance at this is obviously just a racist, bigoted “Islamophobe.” “Terrorism fears as 3,000 UK children a year go to ‘jihadi’ schools in Pakistan, secret government report reveals,” by Abul Taher, The Mail on Sunday, March 23, 2019: A secret Government report has warned that more than 3,000 British children are being taken to Pakistan each year and enrolled in extremist summer schools. The chilling Home Office study says courses at madrasas teach a ‘glorified version of jihad’,...

    European Court upholds conviction of woman who condemned Muhammad’s marriage to 6-year-old March 25, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — The Austrian courts were right to condemn Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff for having sharply criticized the prophet Muhammad’s marriage with a six-year-old girl, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has implicitly decided. On Tuesday, the jurisdiction in charge of implementing the European Convention on Human Rights, ratified by the 47 member-states of the Council of Europe, refused to refer Sabaditsch-Wolff’s appeal against a Chamber judgment approving the Austrian decision last fall to the Grand Chamber of the Court. The ECHR did not trouble to...

    Freedom of Speech Dead in UK as London’s Muslim Mayor Defends Arrest of Christian Preacher Britain continues to race toward its own ruin. My latest in the Geller Report: How much has Britain deteriorated as a free society? This much: a Christian preacher from Nigeria, Oluwole Ilesanmi, recently discovered that preaching Christianity in public is illegal in London, because it offends Muslims. And London’s Muslim mayor has defended the arrest of Ilesanmi, saying that “there are limitations” on the freedom of speech. Ilesanmi was arrested on February 23 while he was preaching, after a Muslim complained to police. A London...
  • A no-deal Brexit remains highly likely

    Forecasting Brexit is still the same old mug’s game it always was. But the probability of a no-deal Brexit has risen dramatically since last week’s summit of European leaders. That scenario can be avoided, for now, if Theresa May were to be ousted as prime minister. The EU would always accept a request for a further delay in such a situation. But it would still insist Britain organise European Parliament elections on May 23 — the UK cannot be allowed to undermine the legitimacy of the European Parliament while it is negotiating its way out. And a new leader would...
  • Nigel Farage claims '20 million people in spirit' have joined his Leave Means Leave march

    If you thought Brexit is being badly handled then spare a thought (or not) for the people who conceived and organised the Leave Means Leave march that brought just 200 marchers. The literal walk across the country against the delay of Brexit took off from Sunderland last Saturday with a small group of people making their way to London. Nigel Farage, who had promoted the march and was presumably the face of it, failed to complete even a single day of the trek and has since been appearing on TV moaning incessantly about Brexit. Given the small number of participants...

    UK media reported late on Saturday that Prime Minister Theresa May was facing a cabinet revolt and may have to resign immediately. The move comes just days ahead of a planned third vote on May's twice-rejected Brexit deal. What we know so far: The Sunday Times, The Telegraph and The Daily Mail reported on the potential coup, citing Conservative MPs. All said an interim leader would be appointed to oversee the last weeks of Brexit negotiation. The Daily Mail tabloid said Environment Secretary Michael Gove would likely take temporary leadership before a full contest in the summer. The Times...

    In a survey published late Tuesday by the Pew Research Center, nearly half of all respondents in 10 EU member states said Germany plays a more important role in the world that it did a decade ago. “There is a sense in Europe that while German power is on the rise, French and British power is stagnant or in decline,” the center said. The view across Europe: The idea that Germany plays a more important role today is most pronounced in Greece, with 81 percent of respondents agreeing.In Italy and Spain, roughly 56 percent shared the same viewHowever, only 37...

    The DUP’s Westminster leader Nigel Dodds has denounced Mrs May’s entire approach in a statement that all but guarantees her deal will not pass next week. The outcome of yesterday’s EU summit seems to have been the last straw. The DUP rejection also casts severe doubt on whether the confidence and supply arrangement that gave her a working majority can survive, at least under her leadership and without a hard Brexit prime minister succeeding her and able to deliver it. It may be that as the government casts around for an alternative to her deal, they are implicitly withdrawing from...

    UK: Muslim migrant blames “immorality” in Newcastle for his violent 20-minute sexual assault on a “vulnerable” man It’s always someone else’s fault. Always. Ever the victim, no matter what the circumstances are. In Afghanistan and elsewhere in the Islamic world, this kind of behavior is broadly tolerated. Women are so devalued, men look to other men and boys for sexual pleasure. Also, the Qur’an promises not just virgins to the blessed, but boys like “scattered pearls”: “Those are the ones brought near in the Gardens of Pleasure, a company of the former peoples and a few of the later peoples,...

    A newly unearthed batch of heavily redacted, classified emails from Hillary Clinton's personal email server revealed that the former secretary of state discussed establishing a "private, 100% off-the-record" back channel to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and that one of her top aides warned her that she was in "danger" of being "savaged by Jewish organizations, in the Jewish press and among the phalanx of neoconservative media" as a result of political machinations by "Bibi and the Jewish leadership." The 756-page group of new documents, revealed Thursday as part of a transparency lawsuit by Judicial Watch, seemingly contradicted Clinton's insistence...

    The European Union has agreed to give the United Kingdom a short delay to Brexit — but only if Members of Parliament vote for Theresa May's deal next week. Leaders of the 27 other EU member states said on Thursday that they were prepared to extend the Article 50 withdrawal process until May 22, to give the UK time to prepare for its departure, according to draft conclusions obtained by several news organisation. The date coincides with the start of the European Parliament elections. However, the offer falls some way short of the three month extension ending on June 30...

    Turkey's high-flying economy, which expanded at a 10 percent annual rate of gross domestic product growth during the first half of 2011,[1] will crash-land in 2012. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip ErdoÄźan's "economic miracle," to use the Daily Telegraph's admiring words,[2] depended on a 40 percent annual rate of bank credit expansion, which in turn produced a balance of payments deficit as wide as that of southern Europe's crisis countries. Markets have already anticipated a sudden turnaround in the Turkish economy. The Turkish lira (TRY) fell by a quarter between November 2010 and September 2011, making it the world's worst performing...

    Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan escalated his rhetoric tenfold Wednesday after he seemingly threatened to kill Europeans in "the streets" throughout "the world" if the current diplomatic row with Germany and the Netherlands continues. From The Independent: Turkey has been mired in a diplomatic row with Germany and the Netherlands after they banned Turkish officials from campaigning in support of an April referendum on boosting the Turkish President's powers. "If Europe continues this way, no European in any part of the world can walk safely on the streets," Mr Erdogan told journalists in Ankara.  He added: "We, as Turkey, call on...
