At least 70 MPs from a number of political parties have written to the director-general of the BBC – Lord Hall – with accusations the public service broadcaster is unwilling to snap out of its “pre-referendum pessimism” and “accept new facts”.

Campaign Against Antisemitism is a campaign against Palestinians

The Campaign Against Antisemitism is a British propaganda organization and registered charity that specializes in defaming Palestine solidarity campaigners. When I launched a petition calling for the group to be deregistered, it responded in a hostile manner.

It first tried to persuade the website Change.org to take the petition down. When that failed, its supporters attacked the petition in an article published by the Daily Mail, a paper which once praised Adolf Hitler for having “saved Germany from Israelites of international attachments.”

Originality not being its strong point, the Campaign Against Antisemitism then alleged that I was a “notorious anti-Semite.”

Israel-funded “infiltrators” behind London campus “provocation”

An Israeli soldier’s controversial appearance at University College London (UCL) involved provocations by groups funded from Israel, a journalist for Israeli state media is alleging.

Jerry Lewis, an Israel Radio correspondent for 36 years, said in January that the October incident was an example of pro-Israel “infiltrators” coming onto campuses and endangering Jewish students in the UK.

Lewis said the infiltrators were “interfering” in student affairs and provoking unrest “to make sure they can justify the funding they get from Israel.”

Minister told to remind Germany of cancelled WW2 debt amid EU demand for £50bn Brexit fee

Sir Bill, speaking as chair of the House of Commons’ European Scrutiny Committee, urged Mr Jones to consider how Britain has been a “net contributor for many decades” to the EU budget and so “our accumulated liabilities are offset by the extent to which we've made these massive contributions”.

He added: “Perhaps also to bear in mind that back in 1953 there was a thing called the London Debt Agreement, where Germany - for all its malfeasance during the Second World War and its unprovoked aggression - found that in 1953, in circumstances which were quite remarkable, that we remitted one half of all German debt.

“Therefore if you compare that situation with what it is now and given Germany's extremely dominant role in the EU at the moment it might be worth tactfully - not one of my strongest points - but tactfully reminding people that there is a realistic position here that we really don't owe anything to the EU whether it's legal or political.”

iPhone users - Whatever you do, do NOT take part in this DANGEROUS new Siri prank

If someone tells you to say the number 108 to Siri – the virtual assistant that ships with the Apple iPhone – whatever you do, don't do it.

The troublesome prank, which has been doing the rounds on social media throughout the last week, should be avoided at all costs.

That's because saying 108 to Siri will immediately connect you to your local emergency services.

The prank works because 108 is the Indian equivalent of the 999 emergency number in the UK.

Shocking claims Tony Blair led a mass migration conspiracy to ensure Labour's rule

TONY Blair betrayed Britain for his own political ends by overseeing a massive conspiracy to flood the country with millions of migrants, an explosive book has claimed.

The controversial Prime Minister cynically dismantled UK border controls so that two million migrants could settle in the country - and vote for him in future elections.

He then gagged Labour officials and his most senior ministers, telling them not to discuss immigration in public under any circumstances for fear of a backlash, it is alleged.

The Labour leader knew the British people would ferociously oppose his conspiracy if they realised what was happening.

So he banned politicians from discussing even the positive aspects of immigration in case doing so brought the public’s attention to the huge numbers of people entering the country from abroad, the book claims.

Blair admits he had no idea how many people would come to Britain when he allowed mass EU immigration and gets it WRONG when he tries to claim it happened years later 

Tony Blair has admitted he had no idea how many people would move to Britain when the EU expanded in 2004.

And the ex-Prime Minister appeared to get wrong the facts of what happened to immigration numbers in a major interview to launch his new policy institute.

He said the surge in immigration to Britain did not happen until after 2008 and that Britain could only have imposed controls for four years.

In fact, net immigration leapt in 2004 and other EU nations imposed transitional controls for up to seven years.

Brussels plot to TORPEDO Brexit: Eurocrats insist on no trade talks before Britain leaves

BRUSSELS chiefs are plotting to torpedo Theresa May’s Brexit strategy in an extraordinary act of self-harm which will leave Britain unable to seal a trade deal with the bloc before its departure date.

In a bombshell move eurocrats want to seek a legal lock on discussions about the UK’s access to the single market, meaning that the issue cannot be brought up during the negotiations.

Instead they intend to ensure that the two-year period allowed for under Article 50 revolves around just two issues - their £50bn demand for an exit bill and the residency rights of EU citizens in the UK.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has blocked a second Scottish independence referendum, saying “now is not the time” for another vote.

The charges resulting from the 2009 inferno include a failure to carry out a suitable and sufficient risk assessment, failure to take general fire precautions—including in relation to safety of employees—and a failure to ensure that premises were subject to a suitable system of maintenance.

‘Tear it down ASAP’: French minister issues warning over Dunkirk migrant camp

The news comes less than five months after the Jungle refugee camp in the neighbouring town of Calais was reduced to dust and rubble by the authorities.

The Grande-Synthe tent camp in Dunkirk is currently home to more than 1,500 UK-bound refugees – mostly from Iraq, Iran, Syria and Afghanistan – and is said to be dangerously overcrowded.

Addressing a Senate committee on Wednesday, Mr Le Roux said Grande-Synthe residents were behaving in an “unacceptable manner” and posed a “threat” to public order.

Ilford North MP Wes Streeting slams George Osborne Evening Standard appointment and demands he RESIGN from Commons

Streeting launched a fierce attack, demanding Osborne resign as an MP.

He said: “This appointment is bad news for the reputation of politics, journalism, and the relationship between the two.

“The conflict of interest is best exemplified by politicians queuing up to congratulate George Osborne on his new role. In no way is this double-jobbing acceptable.

“At risk of never receiving favourable coverage in the Standard again, this is a real disservice to Tatton and to professional journalism.

“He simply cannot continue as an MP while editing a daily newspaper and his appointment raises serious doubts about whether London’s Labour Mayor, MPs, and councils will receive fair coverage under such an obviously partisan editor.”

OSBORNE APPOINTMENT TO EVENING STANDARD MUST BE BLOCKED

“The proposition is that a sitting MP, from the governing party, is appointed Editor of a major British newspaper – in addition to his new position as a highly-paid City adviser. It smacks of greed and the accumulation of power, undermining the Government’s intention to create a country that works for everyone.

Mr Osborne is clearly being badly advised and we can only hope that others help him to understand the damage he is doing to the reputation of parliament and democracy at a critical time in the country’s history. The conflict of interest is so clear it is astonishing that it should have been proposed. A key role of the media is to hold politicians to account; to have a recent Minister or an MP running the editorial line of a newspaper certainly calls into question whether this principle can be upheld."

COMMENT: Migrant crisis proves we are right to leave the EU

As a measure of how serious this problem is a new report from Europol, the EU’s law enforcement agency, also says that migrant smuggling is now comparable to the illegal drugs market.

Across the continent people are furious at the huge number of migrants who have arrived, the strain they have placed on resources and the deliberate reluctance of European leaders – not least unelected Eurocrats – to confront these issues.

It is no coincidence that in Holland, France and Germany anti-migrant parties are storming up the polls.

Tony Blair will not face investigation into whether he misled Parliament over the Iraq War: Decision comes as MPs warn lax rules mean that a PM could still lead the UK into a new fiasco

There is little to stop a repeat of the Iraq War fiasco because official rules on ‘sofa government’ are so lax, MPs said last night.

In 2003, Tony Blair sidelined his Cabinet and took his country into battle after telling US president George Bush: ‘I will be with you, whatever.’

A Commons committee warned that 14 years on, there remains an absence of safeguards in place to prevent a prime minister from disregarding Cabinet procedures.

The public administration committee also said Mr Blair would not face an investigation into whether he misled Parliament over the Iraq War unless ‘new and relevant’ evidence emerges.

But a tiny, pinhead-sized hole in the plastic casing hides a chilling secret which shows just how advanced identity fraudsters have now become.

Police investigating cashpoint tampering discovered the hole meant a tiny camera, which was hidden inside a false cover to the cash dispensing slot, could record the victim putting in their pin number.

Royal Navy new aircraft carriers could be hampered by lack of personnel, warns watchdog

The Carrier Strike programme was entering a “critical” phase with the first of the ships - HMS Queen Elizabeth - nearing completion and due to make its inaugural sailing this summer, the National Audit Office (NAO) said.

It will mark the start of a “high risk” period of trials, testing and training to bring together the carrier with its Lightning II fighter jets and helicopter-borne Crowsnest radar in an integrated force.

Already the first sailing has been put back three months and the NAO warns further “technical issues” could mean the Ministry of Defence's plan for it to be operational by the end of 2020 is delayed.

Among the problems it highlighted was the shortage of engineers, intelligence personnel and war-fighting specialists in the Navy and RAF air crew.

A DECISION to put Syrian refugees into a six-bedroom house in the countryside caused further anger last night as residents were told there may be more refugees on the way.

Inhabitants of the quiet village are furious a migrant family will jump to the front of the queue.

The sprawling £600,000 property in Kent has been empty for a year but will be refurbished and handed over within months.

Those living in the chocolate box village of Eynsford near Sevenoaks claimed the decision was made without consultation and would split the community.

In spite of the feelings of local residents, the council said the refugee family could be the first of many to arrive in the area.

China Initiative Wants To Help Trump's 2026 U.S.A. Vision; British Intelligence Wants To Impeach or Kill Him

Interesting considering the recent revelation that Obama had the Brits spying on Trump.

If the growing number of reports that Donald Trump and Xi Jinping will meet in Florida next month are true, the way is open for President Trump to collaborate with China's global growth and progress driver -- the so-called New Silk Road or Belt and Road Initiative -- as Barack Obama refused to do. The horizon goals Trump set out for America's "250th Anniversary" in 2026 -- peace with nations including our current "adversaries," a renewed modern economic infrastructure, "our footsteps on distant worlds" -- would then have far better prospect of being reached. Those goals are not on the leadership's agenda of either of the United States' warring political parties.

Qazimaj denied killing Mr Stuart and his wife Sylvia, 68, whose body has never been found, but a jury today took less than four hours to find him guilty of two counts of murder.

The victims' daughter and son-in-law gasped and hugged one another as the verdicts were read out at Ipswich Crown Court.

Qazimaj claimed he has been "fitted-up" for the killings, even pretending to be the victim of mistaken identity who had never previously visited the UK.

But he was described a 'lying murderer' by prosecutor Karim Khalil QC, who said "damning forensic results" showed fingerprints meant he was the culprit.

Into the Syrian Quagmire – Trump meets complexity

In order to fulfill his pledge to “quickly” dispatch ISIS, Trump is ramping up the US presence – and we’re well on the way to getting sucked into the Syrian quagmire.

Donald Trump thinks he’s going to get rid of ISIS in Syria “quickly,” and then we’ll be on our way to making America great again – but already he’s finding that the terrain there is a bit crowded, and that he has a bit more than the fast-dissipating “Caliphate” to contend with.

According to reports, the Pentagon has come up with a plan to carry out Trump’s pledge, as ordered, but reality is racing ahead of the generals – and auguring a clash of civilizations in the midst of Syria’s blasted out cities.

'We've paid enough' Farage lays waste to proposed £50bn EU divorce settlement

Discussing the settlement figure, Mr Farage told Sky News Britain had already contributed a net figure of around £30billion since joining the bloc, therefore should be forced to pay very little when it leaves.

“Let’s assume we do trigger Article 50 before the end of this month and then there’s a two-year period, we would have paid in, net, from the day we voted Brexit to the day we leave nearly £30billion – I think that’s quite enough.”

Estimating the amount due, Mr Farage added: “We may be talking £3-4billion… [£50bn] is absolutely laughable.

“What the Prime Minister needs to do is tell them to whistle for it – it’s ridiculous.”

EDF smart meter borkage could lead to surprise winter fuel bills for 'many'

The meter is supposed to sync with the paired electricity meter using Zigbee. This is meant to upload meter reading at regular intervals over GSM using a SIM card. However, this has been failing to pass the information on, meaning EDF is being told by customers' meters there is zero gas being used.

It is, we were told, a known problem, with no end in sight. Yet affected customers have not been proactively informed about the issue, and when we questioned yesterday why our EDF smart meter, which is designed to take the guesswork out of billing, had left us with a debit of £320 over the winter, we were told that it is the responsibility of the customer to check if payment amounts are correct.

Further, we were told that customers should be using a belt and braces approach, and continue to take meter readings. All of which completely defeats the point of smart meters for the customer.

NATO Commander Declares Russia Meddling in US Election Could Be ‘Act of War’

NATO’s Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Europe has declared that alleged Russian meddling in the US election could be considered an “act of war” and prompt a military response.

General Sir Adrian Bradshaw, a citizen of the UK, has alleged that an “international disinformation campaign” through websites such as Sputnik News and Russia Today could also be included in NATO’s definition of an “attack.”

According to the NATO treaty, “an armed attack against one or more [members] shall be considered an attack against them all,” and allies may use any action necessary for defense. In recent years, this has been expanded to include cyber attacks and hacking.
