Saudis step up perks for British MPs to keep mum on Yemen: Report

Saudi Arabia has reportedly intensified lobbying efforts since the start of its deadly war on Yemen, with dozens of British lawmakers having accepted thousands of pounds in lavish perks in breach of the code of conduct.

British MPs have enjoyed over £130,000 in Saudi hospitality since March 2015, when the kingdom launched its military campaign on Yemen, the Middle East Eye (MEE) reported on Sunday.

Mistakenly Posted Photos Allegedly Expose UK Training Saudi Forces in Yemen War

According to The Daily Mail, the secret training program is allegedly aimed at teaching so-called "irregular warfare" combat skills to Saudi forces and involves some 50 UK military personnel.

The British military is training Saudi forces to fight in Yemen, where a conflict between the Riyadh-backed government and rebels has claimed over 12,000 lives, The Daily Mail reported Sunday.

The program, codenamed Operation Crossways, involves nearly 50 British military personnel from the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Regiment of Scotland, according to the report. They are teaching "irregular warfare" techniques to officers from the Royal Saudi Land Forces Infantry Institute.
***
The British military involvement is a "shameful complicity" in the suffering Yemenis are facing in the ongoing conflict, Tory lawmaker and former Development Secretary Andrew Mitchell told the newspaper.

"The UK has been shamefully complicit in Saudi’s role in Yemen," Mitchell said.

Church of England Tells Schools to Be ‘Sensitive’ to ‘Communities’ After Hijab Infant Sexualisation Scandal

The Church of England has responded to criticism of the sexualisation of infant students wearing the Islamic headscarf by encouraging its schools to continue setting “culturally and religiously sensitive” uniform policies.

Last week, it was reported that school inspectors will begin speaking to primary school girls wearing hijabs to ascertain why they are covering their hair, amidst concerns children as young as four are forced to cover by teachers and parents.

The Chief Inspector of Schools, Amanda Spielman, said the hijab “could be interpreted as sexualisation of young girls” and should be questioned, as it is not traditionally worn until puberty.

We were lied to! Secret document FCO 30/1048 kept truth about EU from British for 30 years

A SECRET document, which remained locked away for 30 years, advised the British Government to COVER-UP the realities of EU membership so that by the time the public realised what was happening it would be too late.

Almost all of the shocking predictions – from the loss of British sovereignty, to monetary union and the over-arching powers of European courts – have come true.

But damningly for Tory Prime Minister Edward Heath, and all those who kept quiet about the findings in the early 70s, the document, known as FCO30/1048, was locked away under Official Secrets Act rules for almost five decades.

The classified paper, dated April 1971, suggested the Government should keep the British public in the dark about what EEC membership means predicting that it would take 30 years for voters to realise what was happening by which time it would be too late to leave.

Foreign aid: This is how much Britain forked out last year - including £463m to Pakistan

BRITAIN gifted Pakistan £463million in foreign aid last year, equal to £1.2 million a day, new figures show.

The country is now the biggest recipient of UK handouts despite having its own space and nuclear weapons programmes.

Official documents also reveal Syria received £352 million, Ethiopia got £334 million, Nigeria was given £230 million and Afghanistan £235 million in 2016.

The spending scandals are revealed just days after Chancellor Philip Hammond made no moves to adjust Britain’s Official Development Assistance [ODA] commitment in his Budget.

It means the UK will continue to spend 0.7 per cent of its income on foreign aid, despite cash-starved frontline services like the NHS begging for more money.

Israel’s Military Detention of Palestinian Children. Motion against Israel in Britain’s Parliament

Half a dozen British parliamentarians have launched a parliamentary Early Day Motion (EDM) condemning the military detention of Palestinian children at the hands of Israeli authorities.

The primary sponsor of the EDM, officially tabled on Monday, is Labour MP Richard Burden, joined by five co-sponsors: Labour’s Lisa Nandy, Andy Slaughter, and Grahame Morris, along with the Liberal Democrats’ Alistair Carmichael, and SNP MP Tommy Sheppard.

The EDM begins by noting “with concern that hundreds of Palestinian children continue to be arrested, detained and tried in Israeli military courts, despite the practice involving widespread and systematic violations of international law and being widely condemned.”

The motion also notes “allegations of ill-treatment at the hands of Israeli authorities include blindfolding, physical violence and arrest at night”, and “the disparity between the treatment of Israeli and Palestinian children by Israeli authorities”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This... is how Israel wages phschological - and physical - war on Palestinian children.

The Charge of the Light Brigade - Britain goes full circle on Russophobia

Then, as now, the establishment (and also some of its critics) were promulgating the most ludicrous conspiracy theories about how the ‘barbarian’ Russians posed a threat not just to the British Empire, but to the entire Western civilization.

Then as now, it was all a load of hogwash. The warmongers of the day just wanted an excuse for another scrap, one in which like their neocon counterparts today, they would stay safely out of harm’s way when the cannon balls were fired. For the financial elites, conflict meant excess profits and a nice return on war loans.

UK ‘complicit in promoting famine’ in war-torn Yemen

Britain is becoming “dangerously complicit” in facilitating famine as a weapon in Saudi Arabia’s war against Yemen, it has been claimed. Academic Alex de Waal has joined former Tory minister Andrew Mitchell in warning the UK over its role.

De Waal says the US and the UK, and others on the UN Security Council, risk becoming accessories to the “worst famine crime of this decade.” He told the Guardian: “If you see someone starving, it’s not just that they’ve got a disease. Somebody has done it to that person. Yemen is really the most shocking case of our generation of a famine crime because the lines of culpability are so clear and there’s no denying them.”

£1bn Royal Navy destroyer aborts Gulf mission after breakdown

One of the most advanced Royal Navy warships, which cost around £1 billion, had to abort its mission in the Persian Gulf and return to the UK. This leaves the country without a seaworthy destroyer as five other vessels are already undergoing maintenance.

The HMS Diamond Type 45 destroyer, which was on a 9-month mission to protect trade routes in the region, was forced to head home after just two months. “We can confirm HMS Diamond has experienced technical issues, but we do not discuss the detailed material state of our operational ships and are unable to comment further,” a Navy spokesman said.

Fallout from a major nuclear disaster 'would be no worse than living in London' for your health, research finds

You may think of a nuclear fallout zone as a no-go area, but a new study suggests it is 'no worse than living in London.'

Research has found people who live in a contaminated area lose a few months of life expectancy and have more chance of developing cancer.

Scientists say a similar amount of damage is done to the health of people who live in polluted cities such as London.

The findings suggest that should a nuclear accident happen in the UK, few people would need to be relocated.

CHILLING STATS Failed flu vaccine to blame for ‘THOUSANDS of deaths last winter’

THE FAILED flu vaccine was responsible for thousands of deaths last winter, official figures suggest.

There were 34,000 more deaths between December 2016 and March 2017 than warmer months.

And some 12,500 of these were caused by respiratory diseases, such as flu.

Public Health England has previously admitted the flu vaccine was ineffective among OAPs last year.

This is because pensioners’ weaker immune systems failed to respond properly to the flu jab.

Possible cut to British F-35 order considered before Parliament

Rising costs might force the UK to reduce its order of F-35 fighter jets, the House of Commons has been told.

Lieutenant General Mark Poffley, chief of British military capability, told the Commons Defence Committee that he was "sympathetic" to the idea of reducing Britain's planned order of 138 F-35B jets.

The short takeoff and vertical landing (STOVL) aircraft is the only modern fighter capable of flying from Britain's two new aircraft carriers, the Queen Elizabeth-class. So far the UK has ordered 48 of the aircraft and 13 have been delivered to RAF training squadrons based in America so far.

UK to Pay France Millions More to Stop New Wave of Calais Migrants

The UK will give more taxpayers’ money to France to stop a wave of migrants following a surge in attempted illegal crossings, according to French officials.

Though the Home Office has not confirmed how much would be handed over to ensure continued security in the region, operations at Eurotunnel terminals and ports in Coquelles, Calais, and Dunkirk alone could cost up to £80 million, reports The Times.

Last week, Home Secretary Amber Rudd met with the Minister of the Interior of France, Gérard Collomb, in London to discuss the border. A Home Office spokesman later confirmed that the UK will “work closely with the French authorities at all levels to reduce migrant pressures”.

Leave vote in Broxtowe constituency: 50.3 per cent

Rebels have tabled 19 amendments to the EU Withdrawal Bill, many of which are aimed at frustrating the Brexit process.

Miss Soubry backed all of them. One of David Cameron’s most outspoken ministers, she was sacked by Theresa May in her first reshuffle in July last year.

Soubry, 60, went after rejecting the role of deputy to newly promoted Justice Secretary Liz Truss, telling friends it was an ‘insult’ given her seniority in age and background as a barrister.

Thousands of people on universal credit will not receive a payment at Christmas

Thousands of low-paid people on universal credit will receive reduced payments or none at all over Christmas, in a fresh controversy about the new benefit.

The claimants will be hit because they are paid weekly and their income “will likely go over the universal credit limit”, officials say.

They will be able to reapply in January – but, it is feared, will be left without a payment from the Government over the Christmas and New Year period.

The same problem will re-occur in other months which, like December, have five paydays, because universal credit is calculated on a monthly basis.

But providers say protection is being improved.

Citizens Advice said its research, based on a sample of 1,300 people with credit cards, suggested as many as six million cardholders may have had their credit limits put up without their consent in the last year. Some 1.4 million of those would be struggling financially.
