It found the company had been signing up too many customers in some areas, leading to issues relating to "over-utilisation".

Some customers were receiving just 3% of the speeds promised, it said.

Britain's warhead-watcher to simulate Trident nukes with Atos supercomputer

The Atomic Weapons Establishment, which provides warheads for the UK's nuclear weapons, is going to use a Bull supercomputer to simulate Trident nuclear warhead explosions.

Warhead components change over time through ageing, obsolescence and redesign, which impacts their operational efficiency. The AWE can't run test explosions any more, under the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (to which the UK is signed up), which bans emission of nuclear yield (radioactive debris). Instead, AWE simulates atomic explosions with digital modelling and needs supercomputing facilities to do so.

SAUDI ARABIA ‘TOP OF THE LIST’ OF FOREIGN FUNDING FOR BRITISH TERRORISTS – THINK TANK 

Britain’s major trade and security partner in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia, is the main source of funding for Islamist extremism in the UK, a damning new report by the neo-conservative Henry Jackson Society (HJS) claims.

According to the HJS, money donated to terrorist organizations operating in Britain can be traced back to the Gulf states.

It says the Saudis’ 60-year commitment to the diffusion of Wahhabism, a hardline version of Islam, has led to the funding of British mosques and institutions linked to the wave of attacks in Europe over the last few years.

“There is a clear and growing link between foreign funding of Islamist extremism and the violent terrorism we have witnessed across the UK and Europe,” said the report’s author, Tom Wilson.

“The key now is to get ahead of the issue and find out the full extent of what has been going on. A public inquiry would go some way to informing the debate.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And one of the biggest areas of trade between the UK and Saudi Arabia has been in weapons.

Does UK’s lucrative arms trade come at the cost of political repression?

The UK has made 10 times more in arms sales to Saudi Arabia than it's given in aid to Yemen

UK activists demand end to Saudi Arabia, UAE arms sales

As long as the money is made, the UK's government, and the UK merchants of death, do not give a rat's anus as to how, or against whom, those weapons are used. Let's look at the genocide Saudi Arabia is inflicting in Yemen, shall we?!?

Saudi campaign has killed 1,400 Yemeni kids, UNICEF says (It is now July, 2017; we can be reasonably certain that the figure is considerably higher at this point).

And the domestic cost of violence and death is simply a small price to pay, according to the UK government, courtesy of radicalised youth who suddenly act out against their neighbors, or the general population as a whole.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I not surprised here?!?

It's all about the money to be gained from arms sales to the Saudis (and we know that they have been using DU weapons in Yemen).

And Prime Minister May, if it comes out that it was the UK who sold Saudi Arabia this horrific weapon, I will hold the government of the UK reprehensibly responsible for this horrific choice.

The poisoning of a baby in the womb, by exposing it to DU, is one of the most cruel forms of child abuse I can imagine.

Admittedly, Jezza’s rise from bewildered obscurity to political popstar took us all by surprise. Even the Tories thought they were finished after losing their majority.

UK House Prices ‘On Brink’ Of Massive 40% Collapse

Two leading economics professors have warned that the UK housing market is on the brink of a 40% collapse, echoing the early 1990s property crisis.

“We are due a significant correction in house prices. I think we are beginning to see signs that correction may be starting” Paul Cheshire, a professor of economic geography at the London School of Economics told the Mail on Sunday.

The sharp correction or crash may come about due to two primary factors – Brexit and a fall in real wages as they fail to keep pace with rising inflation.

THERESA MAY ‘SITTING’ ON UK TERRORISM FUNDING REPORT TO PROTECT SAUDI ALLIES

Prime Minister Theresa May is withholding a Home Office report on foreign funding of British terrorist organizations because exposing the truth could sour relations with the UK’s major trading and security partner, Saudi Arabia.
The report, commissioned to investigate foreign states funding extremist groups in the UK, has yet to be made public despite being completed six months ago. The government’s reluctance to share it has left many concerned about how ethical Britain’s ongoing diplomatic relationship with the Gulf kingdom is.

Green Party co-leader Caroline Lucas branded the delay “astonishing.”

“The government is sitting on this report but refusing to publish it or give any reason for their continued secrecy,” the Brighton Pavilion MP said in a statement.

“To defeat terror it’s vital that politicians have full view of the facts, even if they are inconvenient for the government.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The British people deserve to know what is going on here; withholding this report is simply going to damage the Prime Minister's credibility greatly, and particularly if there are (and this will probably be the case) any more acts of violence by radicalised Middle Eastern immigrants.

UK Teenager, Aged 18, Charged With Running DDoS-For-Hire Service

A teenage student has been charged with running a supplying malware that was used for launching distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks against websites of some of the world's leading businesses.

Jack Chappell, an 18-year-old teenager from Stockport, is accused of helping cyber criminals with his DDoS booter service (DDoS-for-hire service) to flood millions of websites around the world with the massive amount of data and eventually bring them down, making them unavailable to their users.

Among the victims that were allegedly attacked by Chappell's malware are the National Crime Agency (NCA), T-Mobile, O2, Virgin Media, the BBC, Amazon, Vodafone, BT, Netflix, and NatWest that had its online banking systems down in a 2015 cyber attack.

Big Lizzie's location is top secret, says MoD (But anyone - including Mr Putin - can track her on this FREE smartphone app!)

She is Britain’s state-of-the-art £3.1 billion aircraft carrier which Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon has promised to protect from ‘envious’ Russian President Vladimir Putin.

And when The Mail on Sunday asked the Ministry of Defence for details of HMS Queen Elizabeth’s course during her sea trials, security-conscious naval chiefs would confirm only that she was somewhere in the North Sea.

Yet all any Kremlin spy or ship-spotter needs to do to keep track of the 65,000-ton vessel is download one of the mobile phone apps which are showing her every move.

The free apps, Vessel Finder and Marine Traffic, plot her progress by the minute – making a mockery of Sir Michael’s pledge to protect the carrier from Russian intelligence-gatherers.

'They're obsessed' Cable rants at 'Brexit militants' who will 'destroy UK cancer research'

Vince Cable has hit out at Brexiteer "militants" who are obsessed with cutting ties with the European courts "for no reason but rhetoric".

UK's 'extreme mass surveillance' web snooping powers face legal challenge

The High Court has granted Liberty permission to challenge part of the UK's "extreme mass surveillance regime", with a judicial review of the Investigatory Powers Act.

The law forces internet companies to keep logs of emails, phone calls, texts and web browsing histories and to hand them over to the state to be stored or examined. The civil liberties campaign group wants to challenge this mass collection, arguing that the measure breaches British people's rights.

In a separate case in December, the European Court of Justice ruled the same powers in the previous law governing UK state surveillance were unlawful.

Britain's only underground goldmine to REOPEN with plans to extract 200,000 oz of gold

A Scottish mining company has put wheels in motion to begin extracting an estimated 200,000 oz of gold at Cononish Mine, in the village of Tyndrum from April next year.

Scotgold Resources Ltd has backing from Australian investors and hopes that the venture will also bring jobs to the local area in the southern Highlands.

John Riley, chairman of Strathfillan community council, has said: “We live in a tourist economy and with the general economy being affected by the rising price of fuel and everything else right now, we don't want to be too reliant on that.

“Work in the tourism industry tends to be cyclical, which causes problems with people having no work off-season.

“The gold mine opening would solve some of these problems and provide the opportunity of skilled work for a long time.”

Leeds hack 'weaponising' Ubuntu for NHS Windows take out

A quiet revolution has been rumbling in Leeds. It may not seem revolutionary: a gathering of software developers is scarcely going to get people taking to the barricades in these uncertain times, but the results of this particular meetup could shape access to NHS PCs in the coming years.

The gathering in question was a hack week that ran until June 30 is to find a way to deploy NHSbuntu, a version of Ubuntu built for the NHS, on 750,000 smartcards used to verify clinicians accessing 80 per cent of applications – excluding those for clinical use – on millions of NHS PCs.

If successful, NHSbuntu would replace the current system using Windows. Ultimately, the aim is to replace Windows on the desktop, too. Smartcard recognition has been the huge barrier.

Survivors of Grenfell fire barred from Kensington council meeting, ‘risk disruption’

Grenfell Tower fire survivors have been banned from attending the first meeting of senior local councillors since the tragedy – because there is a “risk of disruption.”

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea cabinet is meeting privately on Thursday, where its controversial Conservative leader, Nicholas Paget-Brown, will lead the council’s business.

Grenfell residents ‘demand voices are heard’ in public inquiry
Residents were told the meeting was held behind closed doors because of “security and public safety concerns” following the storming of the Town Hall a fortnight ago. Protesters occupied the council building on the Friday following the tragedy in anger at the council’s response.

According to the local authority’s website, councillors will discuss the fire with support officers and “invited guests (if any).”

The press is also not allowed in the meeting.

There will be no written reports other than minutes for the meeting, which is described as an “oral item.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Would someone please politely tell Nicholas Paget-Brown, in small words he might possibly understand, that the optics on this ban are officially horrible, and that the way this is being handled defies logic, decency, and common sense?!?

Banking Giant Tells Clients to Prepare for Government Collapse, Third General Election

Citigroup has warned clients that Theresa May’s position as prime minister is “unsustainable”, warning them to prepare for the government to collapse within a matter of months.

The multinational banking corporation believes the parliamentary majority which the prime minister secured through her deal with Ulster’s Democratic Unionist Party is “not comfortable enough for crunch votes”, according to a report in The Times.

“In our view, May’s premiership is not sustainable beyond a few months, perhaps a year at most, and will be under pressure in the face of contentious parliamentary votes from the very beginning,” they said.

Highlighting the “numerous opportunities for parliamentary rebellion” over Brexit, they suggested there could be a “harsh backlash” from what it describes as “the anti-EU British media” if her government gives way on items such as the 100-billion euro settlement demand.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Considering Citigroup's Eurocentric "vision", which is solidly anti-Brexit,no matter how it handicaps small businesses in Europe, this position is hardly surprising.

Brexit 'will blow hole in budget', EU commissioner warns

The UK's departure from the EU will leave a budget shortfall of at least €10bn (£8.8bn; $11.4bn), the budget commissioner has warned.

Günther Oettinger said the bloc must either spend less or find new money to fill the gap, equivalent to an estimated 16% of the entire budget.

Among the options on the table could be less generous payments to farmers or a tax on financial transactions.

"A big country, a net contributor is leaving," Mr Oettinger said.

"That must have consequences."

The BBC thinks pedophilia is just another “sexual orientation” akin to being gay or transgender

The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) is playing with fire by allowing an anonymous author to publish articles on its platform that aim to minimize the utter depravity of pedophilia. Similar to what the far left publication Salon tried to do several years back (along with The New York Times), the BBC seems to agree with this author that pedophilia isn’t necessarily a disorder to be treated with disdain, but rather a sexual orientation like homosexuality that simply requires “help.”

Cyber attack could lead to military retaliation, says Fallon

Gen Milley, whose own army has been cut by around 100,000 since the height of the Iraq and Afghan wars, said it was a myth that armies were quick to generate.

He said: “There was a time when armies were easy to generate. That time has long gone. Land forces, land power is a very complex exercise in human interaction with the use of tanks.

It takes a long time to build those forces. It takes 15-16 years to build an F-16 pilot. It takes 15-16 years to build a platoon sergeant

“Armies are not quickly generated. Significant sized land forces are required if you want to achieve your political objectives in today’s world.”

Queen’s taxpayer-funded income doubles to £82mn, up 167% since 2012

The government has almost doubled the Queen’s income to £82 million, apparently to cover the cost of “essential works” at Buckingham Palace. Republicans say funding for the monarchy must be tightly controlled, especially under austerity.

The Crown Estate, which includes Regent Street, St James’ Park, and thousands of acres of farmland, coastline and forests, made profits totaling £328.8 million ($419 million) in the year to March 2017, up eight percent on the previous year.

The government has therefore granted an increase in the Sovereign Grant – the percentage of profits from the Crown Estate that is paid out to Her Majesty.

The Queen will now get 25 percent of the Crown Estate’s profits for the next ten years, up from 15 percent.

HMS Windows XP: Britain's newest warship runs Swiss Cheese OS

Defence correspondents from The Times and The Guardian, when being given a tour of the carrier’s aft island – the rear of the two towers protruding above the ship’s main deck – spotted Windows XP apparently in the process of booting up on one of the screens in the flying control room, or Flyco.

“A computer screen inside a control room on HMS Queen Elizabeth was displaying Microsoft Windows XP – copyright 1985 to 2001 – when a group of journalists was given a tour of the £3 billion warship last week,” reported Deborah Haynes of The Times, accurately describing the copyright information on the XP loading screen.

RIPPED OFF AGAIN: EU splurges on building projects...and guess how much Britain's getting?

BRITAIN was yet again on the wrong end of an EU funding decision today as it emerged the country will barely benefit at all from a £2.4 billion Brussels splurge designed to upgrade the continent’s infrastructure.

A pathetic £3.3 million - just 0.14 per cent of the project’s entire budget - has been set aside by eurocrats to pay for upgrades to the crumbling transport network in the UK.

The decision means that once more Britain has been ripped off compared to its European partners despite the fact that UK taxpayers will stump up an astonishing £290 million for the scheme.

'BBC suffers from REMOANERISM' Rees-Mogg rips into corporation for 'anti-Brexit coverage'

The Tory MP for North East Somerset commended Andrea Leadsom, who earlier this week called on the BBC to be more patriotic and supportive of the country in its Brexit reporting.

Mr Rees-Mogg said that the British people deserved better from its media, after voting decisively to leave the EU last year.

Robert Peston mocked Mrs Leadsom's remarks on Newsnight this week by preparing a patriotic breakfast table for his guests, adorned with Union Jack flags.

Despite this, Mr Rees Mogg defended his Tory colleague's remarks and said there was a real issue at hand with media bias.

The Conservative told Peston: "I think the BBC were incredibly good during the referendum campaign in remaining impartial, despite most of their staff favouring the EU.

"But I do think the BBC has suffered a strong tone of Remoanerism since then. There is a real issue with the BBC, that we have to deal with."

"There is no majority in Parliament to repeal that law."

Mrs Miller brought forward a legal challenge to the Government to ensure that a bill on Article 50 went through Parliament.

The Remainer won the verdict, which went all the way to the Supreme Court.

However, the Parliament reacted by quickly passing the bill, turning Article 50 into law.

Lily Allen: We Can’t Gaslight an Entire Community Like This… That’s What’s Happening

In the maelstrom that has followed the Grenfell Tower fire, it has fallen to a perhaps unlikely figure to speak up for the residents and ask searching questions of the authorities.

Lily Allen lives in the shadow of the tower block and witnessed the unfolding tragedy in the early hours of June 14. Since then, she has been a constant presence at the scene, helping the victims and attempting to understand their concerns, but also giving commentary on the relief efforts and exploring the reasons behind the disaster.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the people who managed Grenfell Tower, the people living there were simply ...expendable. Decisions could be made about building materials, like the very flammable cladding which were profoundly, amazingly stupid, and short sighted.

The investigation here should be criminal in nature, not civil, and those people who willingly, and knowingly, made these decisions punished, severely, and the people of the UK should never have to live in unsafe housing again.

Lily Allen is a heroine to me, and I am sure, to many of those who had families, now lost, from this horrendous fire.

Grenfell Tower residents NOT offered sprinklers like council chief said

RESIDENTS of the tragic Grenfell Tower block were not asked if they wanted sprinklers in the building as part of the ill-fated £8.6million refurbishment, Express.co.uk can exclusively reveal.

Nicholas Paget-Brown, leader of Kensington and Chelsea Council, was widely criticised last week after he appeared to lay the blame for there being no sprinklers inside the 24-storey building during an interview on Newsnight on BBC2.

He suggested residents had been given the option of sprinklers in the 120-flat block, but snubbed the chance amid fears it would prolong the project.

However, Express.co.uk has discovered the option of having sprinklers was never put on the table to residents or as part of the proposal.
