The Times newspaper uses Grenfell Tower disaster to attack RT… again

Six months after one of Britain’s worst post-war disasters in which dozens died and hundreds lost their homes, the Times newspaper has attacked activists seeking justice for victims, and chucked in another swipe at RT for good measure. Because why not?

The Times gets off to a strong start in its RT story with the line “A Kremlin-controlled TV station seized on the Grenfell Tower fire to try to foment ‘class war’ in Britain.” It’s a scary accusation, albeit an inaccurate one. RT only aims to foment class war in the early spring. A quick glance around the office shows you’re more likely to find staff fermenting grapes than fomenting class war.

PETER HITCHENS: How do we save British politics? Make MPs get the bus to work

How clever of the Defence Ministry to tell Chancellor Philip Hammond to pay his overdue bills if he wants to carry on flying in RAF planes.

The only problem with the plan is that Mr Hammond will simply whisk the cash out of your pocket and mine, and carry on as before, sinking into the leather seats of Her Majesty’s executive jets and avoiding the normal horrors of travel.

I have never understood why politicians get these privileges. The excuse of ‘security’ is in reality very thin. The risk to them isn’t all that great. Most are so obscure that they could pass unrecognised in any high street.

Thousands of people are hit by Asbos for feeding birds, letting their dogs bark and failing to recycle properly

More and more householders are being hit with tough new-style Asbos for feeding birds, failing to recycle properly or letting their dogs bark.
New research has found that town halls handed out more than 4,000 of the controversial orders, known as Community Protection Notices (CPNs), last year.

They can be issued to anyone deemed to be causing a nuisance to their neighbours, with the threat of a criminal record and a fine of up to £2,500 for those judged not to have improved their behaviour.

SIMON WALTERS: Outsider Gavin Williamson is a man in a hurry and has his sights zeroed in on Number 10

Just a month ago the idea of Gavin Williamson succeeding Theresa May if, as many expect, she stands down as Prime Minister after Britain leaves the EU in March 2019, would have been dismissed as a joke.

Few had heard of him until he replaced Defence Secretary Michael Fallon who was forced to resign last month over sexual harassment claims.

But the moment Williamson got his feet under his MoD desk he launched a one-man publicity blitz: he picked a public fight with Chancellor Philip Hammond over defence cuts, saved two military dogs from being put down and last week said all Britons who had fought for ISIS should be killed.

Cabinet big-hitters back PM's EU deal as a step towards a soft Brexit... as rival Gove camp push May in relentless drive towards harder terms

Michael Gove was last night accused of undermining Theresa May and promoting himself as her successor by saying voters could use the next Election to rip up her EU deal.

The Environment Secretary, who led the Brexit campaign with Boris Johnson, said that after a two-year ‘transition’ when the UK leaves the EU in 2019, it would have ‘full freedom to diverge from EU law on the single market and customs union’.

If the public thought the Government was being too timid, an Election could force a more radical split and ‘divergence’ from Brussels, he argued.

Prince Charles: “Let’s remember Muhammad on Christmas”

Is Prince Charles willfully blind? Or evil?

While speaking on the British radio show “Thought for the Day,” the future King of Britain, Prince Charles, said that Christians should be more mindful of Islam and Muhammad during the holidays.

Christians are quite mindful of Muhammad and Islam during the Christmas season. Tis the season of jihad, rivaled only by Ramadan in the spike in Islamic terror attacks. Yes, Prince Charles, Christians remember Muhammad while their churches are burned, their children kidnapped and forcibly converted and their villages burned — all in the cause of Allah.

Thousands protest in Britain against Trump’s Jerusalem announcement

Thousands of people took the streets of Britain yesterday in protest against the decision by Donald Trump to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Demonstrations were held in at least 10 cities, including London, Manchester and Birmingham.

Organised by the Palestinian Forum of Britain and other major civil society groups, those taking part defied the bitterly cold weather to show their solidarity with Palestine. In London, protesters gathered in front of the US Embassy in Grosvenor Square.

“The recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of an oppressive entity is a violation of every legal norm,” insisted the chair of the Forum, Hafez Al-Karmi. “If international laws and conventions are neither respected nor followed, we should not be surprised if there is chaos in the world.” We are prepared to stand together against the terrorists of Daesh, he asked, so who will stand and fight the terror adopted by Trump and Netanyahu today?

But despite the stiff competition, Mr Rees-Mogg cleaned up across the board as he secured a whopping 2,706 votes from 3,890 responses when the poll ended.

The Prime Minister was left red faced after she secured just 666 votes.

Flynn Case Highlights Deep Political Corruption of US Security Services

Both phone calls took place after the American election. Neither had anything to do with possible collusion regarding the election.

The Flynn case is also a prime example of how the American security services have been politically corrupted, but it is unlikely that Mueller will have any interest in that aspect of the case as the investigation itself has become little more than a political witch hunt in which the Washington-New York Establishment is seeking to explain why its candidate lost in November.

Rees-Mogg takes SAVAGE swipe at Hammond over claim Britain will CAVE to EU demands

Jacob Rees-Mogg said it would be ‘unwise’ for the UK to spend £40 billion on a Brexit bill if a trade deal has not been agreed.

Chancellor Philip Hammond claimed in a hearing of the Commons Treasury Committee on Wednesday that the £45 million Brexit divorce bill would still be paid even if no EU trade deal is struck.

Speaking to the BBC, the Tory MP said: “I hope that it turns out that the Chancellor has misspoken.

“That it would be unwise of us to spend 40 billion pounds, 40 billion pounds that we have no legal obligation to spend without getting a trade deal at the end of it.”

Matthias Wissmann of the German Federation of the Automobile Industry, said: "Brexit and the related lower demand in Britain caused by exchange rates has contributed to a 2.0-per cent fall in car exports, to 4.3 million vehicles.”

The UK is is the biggest export market by unit sales and the second-biggest in cash value.

German carmakers have around 20 per cent of global car market share this year with 16.4 million vehicles sold and produced around half of all new cars registered in Europe.

'Biggest LIARS in political history' British MEP in stunning attack on Labour over Brexit

Ukip MEP Patrick O’Flynn said any backtracking by the Labour party on border control or quitting the single market went against the British people.

Labour has been accused of yet another backtrack after shadow Brexit Secretary Sir Keir Starmer urged the Government to put access to the Customs Union and Single Market “back on the table”, even though Jeremy Corbyn previously ruled it out.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live, Mr O’Flynn told Labour MP Ben Bradshaw that Labour was “playing with fire”.

He said: “If Labour aren’t very careful, they’re going to become known as the biggest bunch of liars in political history.

Juncker 'worried' Theresa May could be OUSTED if she fails to break Brexit deadlock

The European Commission President is desperate to keep Theresa May in power amid fears that a leadership coup could disrupt the Brexit process and allow a more hardline Brexiteer taking over from her, it has been revealed.

It comes as the PM’s own MPs warned she could be overthrown “within weeks” if she does not return from Brussels next week with an agreement that trade talks can begin.

Speaking to the Telegraph, one EU official said: “Mr Juncker wants to support Mrs May to avoid the collapse of her Government. He is prepared to meet her at any time, including on days next week in the run up to the European summit.”

Britain’s record on tackling poverty has reached a turning point and is at risk of unravelling, following the first sustained rises in child and pensioner poverty for two decades, a major report has warned.

Nearly 400,000 more children and 300,000 more pensioners are now living in poverty than five years ago, during which time there have been continued increases in poverty across both age groups – prompting experts to warn that hard-fought progress towards tackling destitution is “in peril”.

The report, by the independent Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF), shows that a total of 14 million people in the UK currently live in poverty – more than one in five of the population. While poverty levels fell in the years to 2011-12, changes to welfare policy – especially since the 2015 Budget – have seen the numbers creep up again.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How a country will be judged, through the lens of history, is in large part through how it treats its most vulnerable of its citizens, both its children, and its medically fragile elderly.

The UK is failing its most vulnerable citizens, and catastrophically, right now.

Fear of a soft Brexit plot to keep the UK shackled to Brussels emerged after details of the proposed future of Ireland’s border were leaked prompting a furious DUP into torpedoing the deal.

A Cabinet source told The Telegraph: “It seems that either Northern Ireland is splitting from the rest of the UK or we are headed for high alignment with the EU, which certainly hasn’t been agreed by Cabinet.

Thousands of British soldiers are unfit for battle because of medical conditions, and the Royal Navy may need French ships in order to fight, calling into question whether the UK’s military is able to defend Britain at all.

Up to 8,000 people are unable to be deployed to the frontline because of mental or physical conditions, lack of fitness or non-medical conditions. That is on top of 10,000 who are deemed medically fit, but are still short of being able to join all operations.

DUP scuppers Brexit plan for Northern Ireland - so now what? Everything you need to know about Theresa May's next moves

Theresa May has just days to salvage Brexit negotiations after a deal was vetoed by the very party she bribed with ­£1billion to prop up her weak Tory government.

The Prime Minister had to break off from final-round talks today as DUP leader Arlene Foster refused to back a solution to the Irish border question that would in effect separate Northern Ireland from the rest of the UK.

The dramatic last-minute intervention scuppered hopes of agreement with EU chiefs so trade talks could begin.

Now a new fix must be found to avoid the complete disaster of having no deal on Brexit at the European Council summit in Brussels next week.

Italy panic as Brexit will see €42 BILLION in funding to country disappear

ITALY could lose €42billion in European Union funding in the wake of Brexit as the UK is expected to leave a gaping black hole in the bloc’s budget.

The EU will deal with the Brexit budget deficit after 2020 with cuts to regions in Northern Italy that are currently dependent on EU funding.

The president of Tuscany has penned a panicked article as regions across the bloc grapple with a forthcoming €70billion budget deficit after Britain’s EU contributions stop.

Two alternate EU plans foretell very different futures – one says resources will be maintained at current levels while another predicts cuts of 15-30 per cent.

If the cuts are implemented, Tuscany stands to lose €1.5billion in the first EU budget after Britain quits the bloc.

A UK government spokesman said it takes allegations of co-operation with terrorist groups "extremely seriously".

Adam Smith International, the British company running the project, said it strongly denies the allegations.

Jacob Rees-Mogg skewers BBC host - Brexit Britain MUST leave the EU COMPLETELY in 2019

The Tory MP told Marr the UK should “implement” its withdrawal from the European Union from that date and not pretend it is still part of the Brussels bloc.

Speaking on the Andrew Marr Show, the leading Brexiteer dismissed the term “transition period” as misleading and said it would delay Britain’s departure by two years.

Asked about a letter he signed to Theresa May calling for no money to be handed over to the EU until a free trade deal is agreed with the bloc, Jacob Rees-Mogg said it was important not to throw funds away.

The letter also states there should be no freedom of movement, no European Court of Justice jurisdiction, and the ability to sign free trade deals around the world from March 2019 when the Brexit “transition period” begins.

Shock EIGHT-point lead for Labour: Corbyn stretches his lead over Tories to largest gap for five months, says only pollster to call the Election right

Jeremy Corbyn has stretched his lead over the Tories to eight points – the largest gap in any poll for five months.

The poll by Survation, which was the only company to accurately forecast June’s General Election result, puts Labour on 45 per cent, with the Conservatives trailing on 37 per cent.

The findings will be greeted with dismay inside No 10, which had taken heart from the fact that despite Theresa May’s multiplying political problems – her disastrous conference speech, the loss of Sir Michael Fallon from her Cabinet in the sex harassment furore and the pornography row hanging over First Secretary Damian Green – it had not fed through into a significant lead for Mr Corbyn.

ONE of Britain’s most modern warships suffered the humiliation of limping back into port today after cutting short its tour of the Gulf due to technical problems.

This means that all six of the Type 45 destroyer fleet are currently berthed in Portsmouth.

The Royal Navy now only has 19 destroyers and frigates which means nearly one in three of its surface fighting force is in dock.

Morgan Stanley is one of the world's largest banks, so naturally it has racked up a long list of frauds, crimes, and misdemeanors, which it has emerged from largely unscathed, thanks to the unwillingness of governments to tackle corporate crime, especially in the finance sector.

So it's not surprising that Morgan Stanley’s European equity team has issued a report warning that the returns to its shareholders will be hurt more by Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party taking office than it would suffer as a result of even the most catastrophic, bungled Brexit under the Tories (who never met a crooked banker they didn't love and solicit donations from).

It's a surprising and frank admission from the bank, that its profits rely more on friendly governments than they do on competent ones.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And yet with all their crimes, both in the US and UK, no banking executive ever goes to jail for the crimes they have committed.

So far this year, 13 Conservative MPs have accepted the royal welcome, as well as one Labour MP, who reportedly got a donation worth £6,722 ($8,964), from the Saudi Kingdom.

U.K. Begins Another Gun Surrender Initiative Amid Increase in Gun Crime

The United Kingdom's National Ballistics Intelligence Service (NABIS) is conducting a new gun surrender program from Nov. 13 to Nov. 26 after gun crime in England and Wales increased by more than a quarter in the past year.

The Office for National Statistics found a 27 percent increase in crimes involving firearms during its most recent review of crime data. Despite a near ban on the civilian ownership of handguns the review found crimes committed with handguns increased by 25 percent and accounted for the majority of gun crimes. The agency said the increases in 2016 were part of a multiyear trend.

"The latest rise continues an upward trend seen in firearms offences in the last few years, however, offences are still 31 percent below a decade ago," the most recent annual report from the agency said. "Over the last year, over two-thirds (32 of the 439) of police forces recorded a rise in offences involving firearms."

Webmaster's Commentary:

Angry publicans in Theresa May’s constituency of Maidenhead, Berkshire are seeking to get the prime minister banned from all the pubs in the area. Their motivation is being upset by government cuts to policing services.

The pub landlords have banded together and are said to be furious about a £413 million cut to the police budget over the last 12 months, saying that the lack of funds puts their staff and customers in danger.

“This seems to be the only way she’ll get the message,” Maidenhead pub manager David Kimber told The Mirror, adding that there are “very few police officers here on a Friday or Saturday night.”

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”.
