‘Branson bailout’ protests erupt as anger grows with East Coast rail

Angry protestors have descended upon London’s Kings Cross Station to share their rage over the proposed £2 billion bailout for Virgin Trains East Coast rail service, owned by one of the world’s richest men, Richard Branson.
The train service, which is a joint venture between Stagecoach and Branson’s Virgin Group, pledged to pay more than £3 billion (US$4.1 billion) to run the rail service until 2023. In November, the rail line announced that the deal will be terminated with the government three years early.

Simultaneous protests kicked off on Thursday morning, with campaigners shaking money tins at commuters in London, Edinburgh, Manchester, Surrey, and Bristol to demonstrate their anger over the botched rail re-privatization.

“You Are Now Entering the American Sector” (Will Syria Be Partitioned?)

Do not take your eyes off the ball, remember that all this delicate pussyfooting is about power.

Russia avoided the Syrian quagmire despite dire predictions. Putin minimised his footprint, his war is almost over, ISIL has been defeated. Trump could also exclaim “Mission is completed!” – and fly home.

But, it seems he is eager to rush in where angels fear to tread. Trump does not mind doing for the Israeli Prime Minister what his predecessors, whether Democrats or Republicans, refused, namely, fighting Israel’s war by indefinitely extending the hostile and illegal occupation of Syria.

Why Is Putin “Allowing” Israel to Bomb Syria? The Saker

The truth is that “the Russians are *not* coming”. The key for Putin is to do what needs to be done to advance Russian interests but without triggering an internal or external political crisis.

Trying to reason with the Israelis or get them to listen to the UN has been tried by many countries for decades and if there is one thing which is beyond doubt is that the Israelis don’t give a damn about what anybody has to say. So talking to them is just a waste of oxygen. What about threatening them? Actually, I think that this could work, but at what risk and price?

Welcome to 'Big A***hole', 'Death-Murder' and 'I masturbate': The British towns that translate as something entirely different to foreign visitors

Orton in Cambridgeshire.

It's an innocent-enough sounding place name, but one of many in Britain that sounds positively rude or alarming to foreign visitors.

Orton, to an Argentinian, is slang for 'big a***hole'.

Then there's Lorton in Cumbria, which may well raise eyebrows among Danes, to whom it means 'the s***'.

Do you live in Todmorden, West Yorkshire? If you do and you see any alarmed Germans in the vicinity, it could be because the name of your place of residence translates to 'death-murder'.

Germans in Wix, Essex, meanwhile, are more likely to be found giggling than looking shocked, because the word 'wix' is pronounced identically to 'wichs' – a slang term meaning 'I masturbate'.

Facebook expands its investigation into whether Russian agents tried to influence Brexit vote

Facebook has told the Government's fake news inquiry it will expand its investigation into whether Russian agents attempted to influence the Brexit vote.

The social media giant previously said it found just three Brexit-related ads linked to the Russia-based Internet Research Agency (IRA), and they were viewed by just 200 people.

But MP Damian Collins, chairman of the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee, responded by accusing Facebook of not properly investigating alleged Russian meddling.

Today, he revealed the company is now expanding its probe to look for other 'coordinated activity around the Brexit referendum'.

Anti-monarchy protesters set to dress up as the homeless and protest in Windsor on the Prince Harry's wedding day - after council boss wanted police to remove rough-sleepers from the town

Hard-left activists are plotting to disrupt the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle by posing as homeless people and staging a mass demonstration.

Thousands of people could take part in co-ordinated protests in Windsor, organised on Facebook by activists who spew out obscenities attacking the Royal Family.

Some are planning to disguise themselves as beggars, turning up with sleeping bags the night before the wedding.

PETER HITCHENS: Face it: sometimes those stale, male MPs are the best choice

The Blair and Cameron governments, among the worst in living memory (and in my view longer than that), were crammed with youthful idiots who looked reasonably good on TV, and great fusses were made of the numbers of women MPs (regardless of whether they were any good).

Yet here we go again.

We have just had a reshuffle openly based on the fatuous idea that the way the Government looks is what matters.

Trump Supporters Attempt to Arrest London’s Muslim Mayor

Far-right supporters holding aloft American flags and shouting pro-Donald Trump slogans have attempted to perform a “citizen’s arrest” of London’s Muslim mayor, Sadiq Khan.

Khan was delivering a speech at a Fabian Society conference in London on Saturday when protesters disrupted his talk, presstv reported.

The protesters were from a group called the White Pendragons. They were hiding in the audience and started holding up American flags when the mayor started speaking. They called for Khan to be arrested, reportedly referencing his religion, Muslim

Khan’s address had to be suspended briefly as a result of the incident.

Who or What Is Feeding the Unrest in Iran? Philip Giraldi

Given the history of foreign interventions in the Middle East, is the United States or Israel plausibly involved in the demonstrations?
The answer to that is both yes and no. There is considerable evidence that the United States and possibly Israel, joined by Saudi Arabia, have set up several command centers in Iraq and Afghanistan to support the protests. They have been using social networking as well as radio broadcasts to encourage the people to get out and demonstrate. One such station called AmadNews, broadcasting from outside Iran, called on demonstrators to attack police stations and government buildings. It appears to be a US government front manned by Persian speaking Israelis.

Nigel Farage has MEP salary docked to £35k amid claims of EU funds misuse

Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage will have his MEP’s salary slashed by 50 percent to £35,000 (US$48,000) after a European Parliament investigation found he had misused EU funds.

Farage, who has recently described himself as “skint,” was being investigated by the European Parliament after allegations were made last February that he, as well as seven other UKIP MEPs, used European funds to finance his party office.

Boxer Bilal Fawaz represented England six times but now has nowhere to live and cannot work while on bail pending deportation

Boxer Bilal Fawaz has fought for England six times but spent more than a month locked away in an immigration detention centre pending deportation to Nigeria.

...

The current London middleweight boxing title holder was sent to London from Nigeria by his parents the age of 14 and has lived here ever since.

...

The Nigerian High Commision has reportedly rejected the Home Office's application to secure Fawaz's travel documents three times, because it claims while he was born there he is not a citizen - his father was a Lebanese immigrant and his mother from the Benin Republic.

A spokesman for the Home Office said: "Mr Fawaz was granted bail on January 2 by an independent immigration judge.

"His bail conditions state that he must report regularly to the Home Office.

"His case is ongoing."

Donald Trump cancels London visit amid protest fears

Donald Trump has cancelled a visit to Britain next month to open the new US embassy in London, amid fears of mass protests.

The president claimed on Twitter that the reason for calling off the trip was his displeasure at Barack Obama having sold the current embassy for “peanuts” and built a replacement for $1bn (£750m). “Bad deal,” he wrote.

But the embassy’s plan to move from Mayfair to Nine Elms in London was first reported in October 2008, when George W Bush was still president.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan says ONE WORD on Brexit that will make Leave voters RAGE

Sadiq Khan said that while he was "heartbroken" about Brexit he had come to accept the results of the 2016 EU Referendum but his use of the word 'probably' is likely to rile many of the 17.4million Brits who voted for freedom from the Brussels bloc.

Discussing the newly published Brexit impact reports he commissioned, Mr Khan said: "I’m not in a state of denial, I accept we are probably leaving the European Union.

Classical Liberalism Strikes Out

Is the Trump presidency an example of liberalism’s decay, or a last gasp to save the system?

We can see how the attraction for a strong, blustering, iconoclastic leader would arise in this context. The appeal of Trump arose from the pervasive sense of helplessness by a broad swath of Americans, especially those who have suffered most from the dissolution of families, churches, communities, and a range of constitutive bonds. On the one hand, I see the effort to exert some control over our destiny – by demanding an economy that works for average citizens, by insisting that a national culture amount to more than borderless non-judgmentalism, and rejecting the “political correctness” accompanying a sexual revolution whose wreckage is accumulating exponentially – as a “last gasp,” as you put it, and even an admirable one.

Nigel Farage warming to second EU referendum

Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage says he is close to backing a second EU referendum to end the "whinging and whining" of anti-Brexit campaigners.

Mr Farage told Channel 5's The Wright Stuff a fresh vote could "kill off" the Remain campaign for a generation.

He said "the percentage that would vote to leave next time would be very much bigger than it was last time round".

Pro-EU campaigners welcomed his comment, claiming "support is growing" for another referendum.

Revealed: British Premier Gordon Brown Is A Paedophile

In the early months of 2003, just prior to the illegal invasion of Iraq, and working in conjunction with a London-based freelance journalist who had thoroughly double-checked exposures published by the Scottish ‘Sunday Herald’ newspaper, I publicised details of a child-sex ring linked to senior ministers within the Blair government.

I initially published my findings, stemming from discreet leaks from a secret list provided by the American FBI to the ‘Sunday Times’ newspaper, and concomitantly discovered that Tony Blair had issued a gagging order to suppress all further discussion of a scandal that would most certainly have brought a swift end to his administration and made Britain’s collusion in the destruction of Iraq impossible.

The articles I wrote concerning the “Operation Ore” cover-up and the 100-year blackout order imposed upon the report concerning the Dunblane massacre of children used and abused by senior Scottish Labour government ministers can still be found here:

Gordon Brown stuns by claiming UK can only control immigration by staying IN EU

The revelation comes as a shock after it was previously believed the pair had a good personal relationship.

However, giving his insight into the former Prime Minister’s thoughts, Mr Hilton said: “As for Obama, all I can tell you is my old boss, former British prime minister David Cameron, thought Obama was one of the most narcissistic, self-absorbed people he'd ever dealt with.”

Cool multi-use invention: Street lamp powered by dog poop has proven to be a successful green energy and waste management combo in the U.K.

The brainchild of Brian Harper, a member of the environmental group Transition Malvern Hills, the device is simple yet effective in execution. First, dog walkers deposit stool into the hatch of a washing machine-like device attached to the lamp. Dog walkers then turn a handle to activate a mechanism inside the device which heats up and stirs the poop. Microorganisms break down the stool to produce methane. A containment box collects and stores the methane until dusk, whereupon a timer releases the gas to light up the lamp.

Harper, who conceptualized the idea three years ago, has stated that ten bags of dog poop are enough to power the lamp for two hours.

London’s Police Commissioner says rape gangs have “been part of our society for centuries”

If “grooming gangs” had been part of British society for centuries, we might have heard about it from the British writers going back to Chaucer who wrote about conditions on the ground in the country, or from political controversies of bygone ages. But there is not one mention, not one hint, of massive numbers of British girls being raped and forced into prostitution by organized gangs until quite recently.

And the perpetrators are Muslims. The victims are non-Muslims.

East Coast rail 'bailout' could cost taxpayers hundreds of millions

The East Coast rail franchise will be terminated three years early, avoiding the embarrassment of another private firm handing back the keys to the government but potentially forfeiting hundreds of millions in premiums due to the Treasury.

Under a rail strategy announced by the transport secretary, Chris Grayling, a new partnership model will replace the franchise contract of Virgin Trains East Coast (Vtec).

The train operator, a joint venture led by Stagecoach with Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Group, had pledged to pay £3.3bn to run the service until 2023 when it was reprivatised in 2015 after six years in public hands.

Instead, Vtec is likely to pay a fraction of that sum, with the bulk of payments due in the final years of the franchise.

Only 9 micro-nations (some mere postage stamps and a few death-squad banana-stans) voted with the Trump-Haley decision, 35 mendicant-states put their heads down and abstained while 21 timorous ambassadors chose to hide their shamelessness in the toilet stalls rather than show up for this important vote.
