Trump Likely to Be Barred from Addressing UK Parliament During State Visit

During his upcoming state visit to the UK next month, Donald Trump will most likely not address the UK Parliament, as House of Commons Speaker John Bercow continues to oppose the idea of the US president addressing the body.
According to a report by The Guardian, the US president will visit the UK between June 3 and June 5. During the visit, Trump will attend ceremonies marking the 75th anniversary of D-Day, June 6, 1944, when the Allied forces (Great Britain, France, the Soviet Union and the US) invaded Northern France (then occupied by Germany) through beach landings during World War II.

"I feel very strongly that our opposition to racism and sexism and our support for equality before the law and an independent judiciary are hugely important considerations in the House of Commons," Bercow said back in 2017, after UK Prime Minister Theresa May first invited Trump for a state visit.

Last week, Bercow and opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn also both refused an invitation to attend a banquet to be held in honor of Trump's state visit in June.

The Guardian, citing anonymous government sources, wrote that it is unlikely Trump will be allowed to address Parliament>>>

Brexit LIVE: Verhofstadt to visit Britain NEXT WEEK in push for 'Brexit REVOLT' in EU poll

GUY Verhofstadt, the European Parliament’s Brexit representative, is coming to Britain next week to campaign for the Liberal Democrats in the European elections.

Meanwhile Theresa May’s embattled Cabinet is facing fresh splits today amid reports the Government is considering a customs union deal with Labour to get a Brexit agreement through Parliament. There is still no guarantee the UK will be participating in the Europe-wide poll - but Mr Verhofstadt is planning to knock on doors in Britain. The Belgian national, who is seeking re-election to the chamber himself, will travel over by Eurostar from Brussels to join Lib Dem canvassers on the doorstep on Friday, the Independent reported.

Magician's Assistant & Royal Navy Reservist: Meet UK's 1st Female Defence Minister

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has been slammed for "fooling" the public "into thinking the ship is now in safe hands" after her decision to replace the sacked Defence Minister Gavin Williamson with a candidate who doesn't appear to instill confidence in the public.

The first woman to hold the post of UK Defence Minister, Penny Mordaunt's resume includes a job as a magician's assistant, a head of foreign press for George W. Bush's presidential campaign, a politician and a Royal Navy Reserve sub-lieutenant, as well as an appearance on a reality TV show.

UK is Europe's Top Sex Slave Market, Romanian Investigators Claim

Many thousands of Romanian teenagers are being lured into debt bondage and exploitation by trafficking gangs whose nefarious network is spread all across Europe.

Romanian anti-trafficking investigators claim that the UK has become Europe's biggest market for sex slaves.
Girls as young as 10 or 11 are being “exported” throughout Europe, and are sometimes sold by their own parents in a near-medieval manner, claims Iana Matei, the founder of Reaching out Romania.

Matei runs a shelter for survivors of trafficking, tucked away at a clandestine site 70 miles from the capital Bucharest.

It is no surprise, she says, that most of the victims are originally from rural Romania, where up to 70 percent of the population lives in poverty.

Fish in British rivers contain traces of COCAINE, ketamine, pesticides and pharmaceutical drugs

Scientists were left shocked when traces of illegal party drugs were found in freshwater shrimp swimming in Britain’s countryside rivers.

Drugs such as cocaine and ketamine were discovered by a team investigating 15 sites at five rivers around Suffolk to see what chemicals were in the water.

The authors said ‘surprisingly’ they found cocaine in every single sample - while the party drug ketamine and other pharmaceuticals were also found in the shrimp.

Trump Visit Prompts Postponement of UK PM’s Showdown With Tory Chiefs

Downing Street announced last week that US President Donald Trump will arrive in London for a three-day visit in June to coincide with the 75th D-Day commemorations.

The Conservative Party is due to call an Emergency General Meeting, unprecedented in its 185-year history, amid the grassroots activists’ revolt over Brexit.

As The Sun revealed yesterday, Theresa May is to face 800 constituency chairmen after a petition from 70 of them demanded her resignation for failing to take Britain out of the EU.

The confrontation, however, will not take place until at least the second week of June, The Sun has also learned, as party bosses from the National Conservative Convention bowed to pleas from the PM’s allies to hold off until after the US President’s first state visit to commemorate D-Day ‘s 75th anniversary, from 3-5 June.

Assange Sentenced To 50 Weeks In UK Prison For Skipping Bail

Julian Assange has been sentenced to 50 weeks in a UK prison - close to the maximum sentence - for skipping bail in 2012 to seek refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy, setting off a seven-year showdown with UK law enforcement and the US that ended with his arrest earlier this month, WSJ reports.

Judge Deborah Taylor said during the sentencing that it would be difficult to find a more serious example of the offense.

Mark Simmons, who represented Assange on Wednesday, said the WikiLeaks founder skipped bail and sought refuge in the embassy because he was afraid of being renditioned to the US from Sweden.

After arriving at the Southwark Crown Court on Wednesday, Assange defiantly raised his fist to rally his supporters. A judge declared during an earlier hearing that Assange's case could warrant the maximum sentence after he was found guilty shortly after his arrest.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, I don't think we will see Assange out of this prison (known as the UK's Gitmo) for an extradition hearing.

The Powers that Be in the US, on both sides of the aisle, want this guy dead, and would love nothing better than to see him assassinated before an extradition hearing can even be placed on the Federal Calendar; something I am very certain MI5 or MI6 could easily arrange, with a little "quid pro quo" from their "American cousins".

Time to Foreclose on the Churchill Cult

As First Lord of the Admiralty [during the First World War], he imposed on Imperial Germany a starvation blockade that resulted in hundreds of thousands of deaths. This blockade wasn't lifted until several months after the hostilities had ended. In the Second World War Churchill supported the terror bombing of German cities, at a time when these population centers could no longer defend themselves and when the war was all but lost ... At Yalta the prime minister worked to preserve the British Empire by shamelessly praising Stalin and the Soviet Empire ... Throughout his life, he stood for the British Empire, British independence, and an "anti-socialist vision of England." In the end, Churchill watched all three vanish.

Winston Churchill's 'naughty document

The so-called 'naughty document' on which Winston Churchill carved up Europe with Josef Stalin is set to go on public display for the first time. Britain's wartime leader made the secret pact with Moscow in 1944 as the Allies closed in on victory over Nazi Germany. The sheet of paper showed the percentages of Bulgaria, Greece, Hungary, Romania and Yugoslavia which would be under Soviet or British control. It is going on display at London's National Archives in an exhibition called Britain's Cold War Revealed ... The phrase 'naughty document' was coined by Churchill himself, who recognised that it could come over as 'callous'. Churchill said his American allies would be 'shocked if they saw how crudely he had put it' ... 'It's potentially incredibly significant - the fate of millions being decided with the stroke of a pen as a result of a casual meeting.
Note: Churchill was a drunk.

Myths About Britain's 'Finest Hour'

There's a myth now about the British hanging together in those dark days [of 1939-1941]. "London can take it," Ed Murrow told America in his CBS broadcasts. Actually, morale was appalling. Most people correctly had little confidence in the competence of their government and thought Germany was going to win. In the Channel Islands, which the Nazis did take over, the people greeted them hospitably and turned in Jews with zest. The British Ministry of Information employed 10,000 people to read people's mail surreptitiously, intercepting about 200,000 letters a week, and discovered that people were deeply pessimistic, and thought Churchill was "played out."

WITH GUN BAN NOT WORKING, POLITICIANS IN BRITAIN NOW WANT TO BAN KNIVES NATIONWIDE

If ever we needed proof of the expression that "guns don’t kill people, people kill people" look no further than Britain, where families may have to start practicing cutting their steak and bread at dinner with a spoon. This is, of course, because Britain's politicians have now made the absurdly ridiculous move to call for the banning of what Reason magazine called "the most useful tool ever invented" - the knife.

Reason reported this morning that British politicians have "declared war on knives" and are moving swiftly to try and ban them, since gun laws aren't working to help stop crime altogether:

Having failed to disarm criminals with gun controls that they defy, British politicians are now turning their attention to implementing something new and different: knife control. Because criminals will be much more respectful of knife laws than of those targeted at firearms, I guess.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am thoroughly reminded of Ron White's line about "You can't fix stupid", which is the way the British Government is trying to handle this issue.

So, soon in the UK, will Chefs' carving knives have to come with a permit?!?

One might imagine so.

Will there be "instructional videos on "how to carve meat with a plastic spoon?!? One might imagine that as well.

And will grocery stores only be allowed to send meat ground, even lamb chops and spare ribs?!?

Right now, in the UK, I wouldn't bet against it.

London's Mayor Sadiq Khan, has been such an horrendous disappointment to the British people, that if he stands again for election in this capacity, I would almost bet on a Conservative candidate trouncing on him, and winning handily.

Drop Huawei from any 5G deal or we could cut intelligence ties, US cyber security official warns the UK - as Cabinet ministers face having their mobile phones seized over a leak from a top secret meeting

The UK risks being cut out of the loop by American spies if it uses Huawei technology for its 5G mobile network, a senior US official warned today.

Robert Strayer, the deputy assistant secretary for cyber security at the State Department, said any involvement of the Chinese tech giant poses an 'unacceptable risk'.

Describing the seriousness of the problem for the US Mr Strayer said today: 'What we really have here is a loaded gun'.

And Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said that Britain should be wary about embracing Chinese firms because they are legally obliged to help their country's spies.

GCHQ chief Robert Hannigan quits

The director of GCHQ, Robert Hannigan, is to stand down early for personal reasons, mainly health issues involving his wife and other family members.

Hannigan only took over at the UK’s surveillance agency in November 2014 to oversee a more open approach after revelations by the National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden put GCHQ on the defensive in 2013.

His sudden resignation – he informed staff just hours before making this decision public – prompted speculation that it might be related to British concerns over shared intelligence with the US in the wake of Donald Trump becoming president.

But the GCHQ press release stressed his decision was exclusively for family reasons. As well as his ill wife, Hannigan has two elderly parents to look after. He will remain in post until a successor is appointed.

DAN HODGES: Who's in charge of Britain today? It isn't Theresa May or the Cabinet... the terrifying answer is it's nobody

Who runs Britain? Who is actually responsible for the governance of our nation this morning?

It isn’t the Prime Minister. Mrs May holds that title, but has relinquished any grip on the office. The only meaningful decision left for her now is the announcement of the date of her departure from Downing Street.

It’s not the Cabinet. As the Huawei debacle has revealed, their focus is no longer on running the Government but jostling for the premiership. The views of the voters of Britain are now secondary to the views of the 120,000 members of the Tory Party who will be eligible to vote in the upcoming leadership election.

Trump Slammed as 'Threat to World Order' Ahead of UK Visit

The US president last visited the UK in July 2018, with his visit being met with protests and even the launch of a "Trump-baby" blimp in London in mockery of the head of the White House.

Labour Shadow Foreign Secretary Emily Thornberry criticised the upcoming visit of US President Donald Trump to the UK in June in light of his recent decision to pull-out of the unratified international Arms Trade Treaty. In her opinion, the move was "the final confirmation that [Trump] is not the leader of the free world".

"He never has been, and he does not deserve the honour of a state visit to Britain", she added.

SECRET UK MILITARY LAB GASSED, KILLED 48,400 ANIMALS IN 7 YEARS – REPORT

Around 48,400 animals, — namely pigs, monkeys, and guinea pigs — were killed in experiments conducted at the secret Porton Down laboratory in Wiltshire between 2007 and 2017, the Sunday Mirror reported. The Ministry of Defence supported the practice as being life-saving for British troops.

Porton Down reportedly tested experimental body armour by blasting animals covered in it with various explosives. It also tested poisonous substances, gases, and nerve agents on animals.

The news was not well received by animal rights groups, with Animal Aid slamming the experiments for causing “extreme suffering and death”, calling them morally unconscionable. The NGO stated that such experiments are unnecessary and noted that the number of killed animals is “alarming”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but 48,000 animals to be "sacrificed" in this manner, appears to be horrifically impossible to justify, unless, of course, the scientists doing these "experiments" happened to be avowed sadists as well.

UK to build steel wall to protect Trump during visit: Report

British authorities are planning a massive wall at the site of a World War ll memorial to protect US President Donald Trump during his state visit to the location in June as public outrage about the controversial trip continues to grow.

The leader of the local council in the southern English city of Portsmouth revealed on Thursday that authorities will encircle the location of events to mark the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings in the city with two steel layers of security fencing to prevent the public from reaching the site where Trump will be present along the British queen to attend the memorial.

Gerald Vernon-Jackson, a Liberal Democrat, expressed his huge fury at the plans, saying it would deprive the public from paying their tribute to the war veterans.

UK condemns Russia’s decision on granting citizenship for Donbass residents

UK officials have condemned Russia’s decision to simplify procedures for Donbass residents to obtain Russian passports, the UK Foreign Office informed in a statement published on its website.

"The UK condemns [Russian] President [Vladimir] Putin’s decision to sign a decree making it easier for Ukrainian citizens living in non-Government controlled areas of eastern Ukraine to receive Russian passports," a spokesperson of the UK Foreign Office said.

"This step is the latest in a pattern of Russian behaviour aimed at threatening Ukraine’s security and sovereignty, and undermining its territorial integrity," the diplomat continued.

UK must show leadership on Turkmenistan’s human rights atrocities

t’s time for the UK to show global leadership on Turkmenistan’s human rights abuses, says Comment Central.

As the dawn of Brexit approaches, the UK is entering a crucial phase in its foreign policy; one that is likely to define its international approach for much of the 21st Century.

The Foreign Affairs Committee under the leadership of Tom Tugendhat has become an increasingly important actor in the UK’s debate on foreign policy, launching necessary and important inquiries.

One such initiative is the recently announced Autocracies and UK Foreign Policy Inquiry. Its remit is to examine British policy towards autocratic states and the ways in which they interact with the rules-based system. It is essential that it looks beyond the countries that make headlines to those that will be of increased geopolitical importance in the coming years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Britain is headed back to the age of empires (they are hardly alone) when they got clobbered in Afghanistan, slaughtered the Zulu and pillaged India.

Staff members are quitting their jobs at the U.K.’s National Health Service because of rampant transgender experimentation on children

There’s a mass exodus taking place within the ranks of the National Health Service (NHS), the official government-run “health care” program of the United Kingdom, over corrupt policies that a growing number of ex-employees are describing as unproven scientific experimentation on children with gender dysphoria.

According to reports, more underage children than ever in England are now being recommended for gender transition “therapy” in the form of drugs and surgery, even when they’re just confused – as many developing youngsters are as they naturally transition through puberty into adulthood.

As many as 18 people have thus far resigned from the NHS gender clinic due to outrage and outright horror over what they’ve been witnessing take place there over the past several years. In essence, children as young as three are being given puberty-blockers, and in some cases irreversible cross-sex hormones, in pandering concession to the Cult of LGBT.

GCHQ blasts Trump's 'utterly ridiculous' accusation that it helped Barack Obama spy on his campaign in 2016 - just a day after the President accepted invitation for UK state visit

GCHQ - Britain's electronic espionage agency - has blasted Donald Trump's 'utterly ridiculous' accusation that it helped Barack Obama spy on his campaign in 2016 - just a day after the president announced his UK state visit.

The US president highlighted a claim by former CIA analyst Larry Johnson that British intelligence assisted the administration of Barack Obama by spying on his 2016 run for the White House.

In a trademark tweet, Mr Trump added: 'WOW! It is now just a question of time before the truth comes out, and when it does, it will be a beauty!'

However GCHQ responded by referring to a statement it issued when similar allegations surfaced in 2017 dismissing the claim it was asked to conduct 'wiretapping' against the then president elect as 'nonsense'.

'They are utterly ridiculous and should be ignored,' the statement said.

PM May's Job Safe Until December, Promises To Provide EU Departure “Clarity”

Under Tory party rules, the leader cannot be subjected to a no-confidence vote until December, after defeating the last bid to unseat her four months ago.

Theresa May has narrowly escaped the threat of a challenge to her position as Conservative leader until at least December.

With senior MPs on the backbench 1922 Committee rejecting calls for changes to Party rules allowing for a no-confidence vote in the Prime Minister in the coming weeks, Theresa May can breathe a sigh of relief.

Nonetheless, May is expected to provide the Committee with "clarity" and a timeline regarding her plans to remain PM if her EU Withdrawal Agreement fails.

Billionaire Branson Congratulates May for Stopping Clean, No Deal Brexit

Richard Branson has congratulated Prime Minister Theresa May for “standing up” to the “extreme right-wing” of her party by stopping a clean Brexit, saying he would “dearly love” a second referendum.

The billionaire businessman who lives on a private island told Reuters, “I take my hat off to Theresa May for standing up to her extreme right-wing and not allowing a no-deal Brexit to happen because I think that would have done irreparable damage to Great Britain and a lot of damage to Europe, as well.”

“Obviously I just dearly would love to see another referendum,” he added, explaining that the largest democratic mandate in British history should be overturned — even before it has been implemented — because many Brexit voters “are no longer” and because “a lot of young people now can vote.”

BRITAIN'S ASSASSINATION PROGRAMME STRETCHING BACK TO 9/11

SOURCE: TRUEPUBLICA.ORG.UK
Reprieve is a legal charity which seeks to uphold the rule of law and the rights of individuals around the world—with a specific focus on death penalty cases and abuses committed under the umbrella of the “War on Terror”. It has submitted written evidence to Parliament’s Defence Committee in this regard. It makes strong reference to Britain carrying out covert air strikes outside of declared war zones—primarily, in Pakistan, Somalia and the like. Reprieve’s investigations have included the role played by the UK in facilitating the covert strikes carried out by US bodies including the CIA and JSOC (Joint Special Operations Command). As part of its work, Reprieve also represents a number of relatives of civilians killed—in Reprieve’s view, illegally—in such covert strikes. You can read the submissions HERE.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That Britain's government was not only capable of state sponsored, extra-judicial assassinations, but employed them frequently, should be no surprise to anyone with a cursory knowledge of contemporary British history.

Democrat Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said there will be “no chance whatsoever” of a UK-U.S. trade deal after Brexit if Britain leaving the European Union impacts the British-Irish border.

Speaking ahead of a trip to Ireland and the United Kingdom, NancyPelosi said: “first of all it is very hard to pass a trade bill in the Congress of the United States, so [it isn’t a] given any way,” she claimed.

Embarrassing: British Navy Fails at Tracking Russian Subs; Sailors Caught Doing Cocaine

Scandal in the British Navy. Sailors of the Talent nuclear submarine were caught using cocaine. It resulted in the disruption of the operation of tracking down Russian submarines in the North Sea.

It's reported HMS Talent should've gone on a raid last Sunday, but the day before the crew members attended a party after which seven sailors failed a drug test. They were fired and the submarine's departure was postponed.

The local press noted this wasn't the first time the submarine encountered troubles. Four years ago, this submarine was on a raid on tracking down Russians, but it hit an iceberg and almost sank.

Britain's role in the suffering of Yemen – squalid beyond belief

Britain’s unending boast that it stands as a beacon of human rights and justice is belied by the cruel plight inflicted on the people of Yemen.

If a special place in hell is reserved for a Saudi kleptocracy that wears its barbarism as a badge of honor rather than shame, Britain’s ignoble role in actively facilitating Riyadh’s murderous war in Yemen is surely deserving of the same.

Thinking about it the scope of the inhuman brutality that has been inflicted on the Yemeni people over the course of a conflict that began in 2015, it is near impossible to fathom the pristine hypocrisy of a British political establishment that is never done lecturing the world on matters great and small.

US agrees not to seek death penalty for Assange

The United States has agreed not to seek the death penalty against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in covert negotiations with the UK and Ecuador to get him evicted from the South American country’s embassy in London, US media reported.

The process of moving Assange out of the Ecuadorian Embassy started a year ago, in March 2018, when the Ecuadorians made their first request to Britain, ABC News reported Monday.

Ecuador made its request in a letter on March 7 of last year, asking for written assurances that the UK would not extradite Assange to a country where he could face the death penalty, the report said, citing US and Ecuadorian officials.

Ecuador's direct outreach to the US came six months later, through the country’s ambassador to Germany, Manuel Mejia Dalmau, according to the report.

In it, they said: 'The lawful speech of millions of people would be monitored, regulated and censored.

'The result is an approach that would make China’s state censors proud. It would be very likely to face legal challenge.

Staff at Barrow's shipyard in Devonshire have been evacuated following reports that a bomb has been found aboard a nuclear submarine, according to local press reports.

WikiLeaks Discovers Spying on Assange in Ecuadorian Embassy - Editor in Chief

Julian Assange has been locked up in Ecuador's embassy in London for almost seven years now, but it was reported that the Wikileaks founder would soon be expelled from the building.

WikiLeaks announced on Wednesday that it had uncovered an "extensive spying operation" against whistleblower Julian Assange within the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

Julian Assange, the founder of the WikiLeaks whistleblowing website, is being spied on inside the embassy, where he has been residing for the last several years, said the website's Editor-in-Chief Kristinn Hrafnsson.

He assumed that Assange's "every move" inside the building, as well as meetings with visitors, are being monitored via security cameras.

UK's MoD Reviewing Status of F-35s Following Japan Crash

The UK Ministry of Defence is collaborating with US authorities as they look to review the status of 17 F-35B fighter jets - the probe was initiated after a Japanese F-35 jet crashed on Tuesday in the Pacific Ocean, according to a ministry spokesperson.

"Safety is of the utmost importance and very closely managed on the F-35 programme. We will continue to review the situation as further information becomes available," the UK Ministry of Defence spokesperson noted.

The British Ministry of Defence has shown its concern as it has plans to purchase a total of 138 F-35 fighter jets developed by Lockheed Martin, according to Reuters. In November last year, Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson announced that the UK was doubling its fleet of F-35 fighters by ordering 17 more jets.

"At tomorrow's EU Council, please vote against any further extensions to Article 50 and oblige the UK to leave the EU on Friday on WTO terms, as you previously said you would only honour any application for an extension if there was a credible reason so to do. That credible reason does not not exist." Mr Loughton added: "If the EU elections go ahead, it is highly likely the UK will elect an army of Nigel Farage mini-mes, who I am afraid will wreak havoc with the European Parliament.”

MPs Urged to Support Family as Study Finds UK a ‘World Leader’ in Broken Homes

Politicians have been urged to support the traditional family, as a report revealed that children from broken homes had double the rate of mental illness, poverty, or getting into trouble with law enforcement.

In a study which laid the “devastating impacts” of family breakdown bare, the Centre for Social Justice (CJS) blasted “political paralysis” on issues concerning the family, commenting that MPs’ “silence” on the matter “often stems from a fear of sounding judgemental or moralising”.

“Family breakdown is not simply an inevitable consequence of modern society,” the report said, pointing out that while Britain was “fast becoming a world leader” in the phenomenon, with only two-thirds of British under-15s living with both parents, the picture was much brighter in other OECD countries.

Despite Brexit Referendum And Endless Promises, UK Govt Lays Legal Groundwork to Host EU Elections

The British government has made it legal for an election to take place in May, the necessary legal preparation needed to hold the EU elections that the United Kingdom shouldn’t have been taking part in.

Held every five years to select members for the European Parliament, the May election will come very nearly three years after electors in the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union by a margin of more than a million votes.

That Britain could be involved despite the British political class being given a clear mandate to take Britain out of the EU in the largest democratic exercise in British history in 2016, which was reconfirmed in the 2017 snap election, will be seen as a deeply symbolic totem of that political elite having failed to deliver on time.

Brexit REVENGE: Spain plot to punish Britain with 'purist and hardline' delay conditions

Madrid is positioning itself as the harshest national capital in talks over Theresa May’s latest request to delay Britain’s EU divorce until June 30. EU leaders have noted the very “purist and hardline” approach being taken by Spain ahead of the country’s April 28 general election. Sources said the pressure will likely result in a “long list of conditions” for Mrs May to follow if she wants to once again extend the EU’s Article 50 exit clause.

The clinicians from the Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) clinic based in London and Leeds left over concerns children were being incorrectly diagnosed with gender dysphoria.

It was feared some gay children struggling with their sexual identity are being incorrectly diagnosed as transgender.

Specialists also worried that some of the youngsters were being referred and pressured into having gender change treatment after suffering homophobic bullying.

Odds of a ‘no deal’ Brexit next week have risen markedly, as the Commons fails to coalesce around a viable alternative to Theresa May’s deal, while once again rejecting the “best possible deal” negotiated between the prime minister and the EU27, albeit by a smaller, yet still considerable, margin than in the past.

UK govt trying to control online free speech is ‘very serious and sinister’ – analyst to RT

Plans by the UK government to regulate the internet with an independent watchdog, apparently due to widespread concerns over harmful content, should be a worrying wake-up call for advocates of free speech, an analyst tells RT.

John Wight, a writer and political commentator, argues that the mainstream media and their governments in the West do not want to take responsibility for creating the conditions for public cynicism. He claims they are ostensibly trying to curb dissent with this controversial intervention on freedom of expression.

MI5: Number of Far Right Terror Cases ‘Absolutely Dwarfed by the Number of Islamist Cases’

The number of far-right terror cases the authorities are faced with is “absolutely dwarfed” by the number of cases related to radical Islam, according to Britain’s Security Service, better known as MI5.

MI5 specialises in counter-espionage and domestic security, in contrast to the foreign intelligence-oriented Secret Intelligence Service – better known as SIS or MI6, made famous by Ian Flemming’s James Bond books. The assessment of the relative seriousness of the Islamist terror threat and the far-right terror threat was disclosed halfway through a Guardian report focusing heavily on the latter, later republished by other media outlets including CNN and Microsoft-owned MSN.

Britain ‘Officially Ready’ for No Deal Brexit, Reveals Govt Minister Responsible for Plans

The Government minister who was responsible for No Deal planning at the Brexit Department says that Britain is “officially ready” for a clean break with the European Union.

Chris Heaton-Harris MP was Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Department for Exiting the European Union (DExEU) until April 3rd, when he resigned in response to Prime Minister Theresa May announcing she would request a second Brexit delay from the European Council, suggesting that bureaucrats had purposely failed to inform her of all the No Deal planning which is in place.

Mrs May’s decision to abandon her previous position that “no deal is better than a bad deal” and suggest she would submit to a customs union with the European Union to win the support of the hard-left Labour opposition for a deal “obviously makes my job in Government [as minister overseeing No Deal planning] irrelevant”, Heaton-Harris said in his resignation letter.
