It has been created by former Blue Peter presenter Peter Duncan, 65, who has branded it as 'the planet-saving panto'.

BARR ENDS ALL CONSPIRACY THEORIES FOREVER BY SAYING EPSTEIN DIED VIA A SERIES OF COINCIDENCES

SOURCE: CAITLIN JOHNSTONE
In an interview with Associated Press, US Attorney General William Barr put all conspiracy theories to rest once and for all by assuring the world that alleged sex trafficker and alleged billionaire Jeffrey Epstein’s death was simply the result of a very, very, very long series of unfortunate coincidences.

“I can understand people who immediately, whose minds went to sort of the worst-case scenario because it was a perfect storm of screw-ups,” Barr told AP on Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am thoroughly reminded of the character in the adult cartoon series, "South Park", Officer Barbrady, and his mantra, no matter what the situation, to comment to the "Lookie-lews", ogling a crime scene, "along folks, nothing to see here!!"

Of course, Barr is getting his orders from his higher ups, who don't want anymore information getting out about how many of the heads of state; the truly monied, celebrities, and more Epstein had files on.

Sex; Blackmail; Information; for many intelligence agencies, they are all part of the same game.

And now, they have another victim come forward, represented by her attorney, who has stated, that Prince Andrew had some intimate moments with her, when she was underage, at one of the Epstein "gatherings".

The "train wreck" of an interview with Prince Andrew, on BBC, was encouraged by his daughter, Beatrice, who did not have any real idea of who her dad really was, and was very naive about how the media was going to treat "daddy" , and how he was going to responded under pressure when the interviewer's "claws came out", and was forced to find out, the same way every Brit found out when the interview aired, that her Dad had been, indeed a predator; at least at that moment in his life.

Full Interview: Prince Andrew on the BBC.

So now, what those Powers that Be, who want to keep these activities hushed up so that governments don't fall, have, are two cunnundrums; first, to let Prince Andrew be the "fall guy", and pay the damages in this lawsuit, or insure that he cannot testify, because he is "unavailable", because he knows way more about the operation than they can imagine.

There will be no kindness here; only the brute force of power, insuring its continuity as the guilty want to stay protected; and we will see how this unfolds.

But if I were his Mom, Queen Elizabeth, I would be summoning MI5, and/or MI6 right now, and have an off-book conversation about how they can keep her youngest son from continuing to be a "live liability", and protecting him 24/7, even if he claims he does not need this.

The people for whom I am most sorry, in this whole, sordid affair, are his Mom, Queen Elizabeth; his Ex, The Duchess of York; and his kids, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice; Prince Edward; Prince Charles; and Princess Anne; Because no matter how "monied" these people wind up, the keen sense of betrayal by a man they all loved, has to be cutting like a knife right now.

"British" Bankers Supplied Germany to Extend WWI

By Henry Makow Ph.D.
(From Dec. 1, 2007)
On Oct 12, 1915, Edith Cavell, 50, a British nurse and head of a teaching hospital in Belgium, was shot by a German firing squad. Her death inflamed anti-German feeling in the US and caused enlistment in England to double.

She had helped some British POW's escape. Normally her crime was punished by three months imprisonment. Why was she killed?

According to Eustace Mullins, Edith Cavell had stumbled upon some damaging information. On April 15, 1915, The Nursing Mirror in London published her letter revealing that the Allied "Belgian Relief Commission" (charged with feeding Belgium) was, in fact, channeling thousands of tons of supplies to Germany.

Now Prince Andrew resigns from Dragons' Den-style project Pitch@Palace after mounting pressure from sponsors who said continuing was 'untenable' and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra ditch him as patron

Andrew appears to have bowed to pressure and stepped down, with the move coming a day after one sponsor said his plans to continue leading Pitch were 'not tenable'.

The event will now be known only as 'Pitch' and will continue to be run by the Duke’s former private secretary Amanda Thirsk, sources told The Daily Telegraph.

High profile business sponsors KPMG, Standard Chartered and Inmarsat, a British satellite telecommunications company, have all said they will not be renewing their financial support for Pitch.

The beleaguered royal also faces the prospect of Virginia Roberts, now known as Virginia Giuffre, who alleges she had under-age sex with the duke, being interviewed on BBC's Panorama programme early in December.

‘BEAST OF BUCKINGHAM PALACE’ CHILDREN’S BOOK RELEASED AMID PRINCE ANDREW SCANDAL LEAVES TWITTER SMIRKING

Comedian and ‘Little Britain’ star David Walliams’ new children’s book ‘The Beast of Buckingham Palace’ has caused quite a stir on Twitter, not because of its content but for the perfect comedic timing of its release.

At pretty much any other point in 2019, the online commentariat would hardly have batted an eyelid at Walliams’ book title, however, in the immediate aftermath of Prince Andrew’s disastrous BBC interview and subsequent demotion to royal family pariah, online commentators could hardly contain themselves.

The car crash interview saw the Duke of York attempt to defend and downplay his friendship with suspected sex trafficker and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. He has since been summarily dumped by a series of companies and charities with whom he worked before being dismissed from public duties by the Queen herself. “As they say, the secret of comedy is timing,” comedian Frankie Boyle said in response to the release.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What Prince Andrew suffered from can only be described as an horrendous case of hubris, because of which which he believed he could actually get away with ANYTHING, because of his royal stature, with zero repercussions.

The people for whom I genuinely feel bad in this whole, sordid mess, are his Mom, Queen Elizabeth; his ex-wife, Sarah, the Duchess of York, who defended him to the hilt; and their two daughters, Princess Beatrice, And Princess Eugenie; because no matter how much money they may have remaining, post him getting fired by the Queen, his betrayal of his family in this way, must have cut deeper... than words can possibly describe.

I have zero sympathy for this man whatsoever; that being said, If Andrew has any of his wits about him, he will "solicitor up" (which we Yanks understand as "Lawyer Up") with the best possible the UK has to offer, in this scandal, and when interviewed by the FBI, CIA, etc., will simply tell the truth.

But if he does this, MI-6 will have to offer him 24/7 protection, because the people in very high places in governments who surrounded Jeffrey Epstein, will absolutely not want this information made public.

Governments could, potentially fall, from his revelations; and rather than that happening, those who can, may want to insure that Prince Andrew cannot testify at all, because he has become a "live liability", post-Epstein's death.

Does the Duke STILL not get it? Royal Family step in AGAIN and force Prince Andrew to cancel junket to Bahrain he was about to jet off on a day after 'stepping back' from public duties

The beleaguered royal had planned to fly to the Middle East to attend an event connected with his Pitch@Palace initiative - less than 72 hours after being forced to step down from royal duties over the Jeffrey Epstein scandal.

But hours after the Daily Mail contacted Buckingham Palace to say it was about to reveal details of Andrew's foreign jaunt, sources said he had decided to cancel it.

TripAdvisor suspends reviews for Pizza Express in Woking after Prince Andrew discussed it in BBC interview sparking flood of spoof comments

When asked why he would remember a meal at Pizza Express 18 years later, he said: 'Because going to Pizza Express in Woking is an unusual thing for me to do, a very unusual thing for me to do.'

Within minutes of his explanation, TripAdvisor and Google were flooded with fake reviews of the Woking restaurant as viewers satirised the duke's comments.

One reviewer wrote: 'Love this place. I had a cracking pizza here in 2001. I remember it was 2001 because it was very strange the guy next to me had an American Hot pizza with extra chillies... not a drop of sweat came off him. Very odd.'

Axe hovers above Prince Andrew's aide behind the Newsnight interview amid Palace fears ALL his staff could lose their jobs

Prince Andrew's spectacular self-destruction raises questions about the future of his courtiers.

His loyal private secretary Amanda Thirsk is widely expected to be forced to carry the can for the disaster.

But with his entire public life now on ice, the Duke of York may find he needs fewer staff altogether, with one royal expert predicting his private office at Buckingham Palace will be closed altogether.

Revealed: Queen's most senior courtier was forced out of his job in bitter power struggle over Prince Charles's demands for extra royal duties ahead of his succession to the throne

The Queen’s most senior courtier was ‘forced out’ in a power struggle between Buckingham Palace and the Prince of Wales, it was claimed last night.

Sir Christopher Geidt, the Queen’s private secretary, suddenly announced in July that he was leaving after 15 years of royal service, loudly insisting that the monarchy was in good shape.

The Mail revealed that he was being followed by his assistant private secretary, Samantha Cohen, the third most senior courtier in the Queen’s private office, amid tensions between the main royal households and their senior staff, particularly Buckingham Palace and Clarence House.

Global Accounting Firm KPMG Dumps Prince Andrew’s Mentorship Scheme After BBC Interview - Report

Photos and videos of a ‘sweaty’ Duke of York partying with young women on the French Riviera appeared to challenge his claims in a recent BBC interview that he “never really partied” and tended to avoid “public displays of affection” in a controversial defence of his friendship with deceased US financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

KPMG, one of the world’s ‘big four’ major accounting firms, has dropped its sponsorship of Pitch&Palace, a multi-million pound mentorship and networking scheme for entrepreneurs founded by Prince Andrew in 2014, amid the public scandal surrounding the Duke of York’s social life, Sky News has reported.

UK Failure in Iraq and Afghanistan Highlighted by War Crime Claims

The alleged bid by the British government and army to close down investigations into torture and murder in Iraq and Afghanistan appears to be the latest aspect of a widespread desire in in the UK to forget all about these failed wars.

Joining the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 is commonly blamed on Tony Bair, but there is little interest in the desperate situation into which British troops were plunged post-invasion, first in southern Iraq and then, three years later, in Helmand province in Afghanistan.

The gravity of the miscalculations in each case is not in doubt. Sir Sherard Cowper-Coles, the British ambassador in Kabul at the time, wrote in his memoirs that the worst mistake made by the Foreign Office in the previous 30 years was the invasion of Iraq, and the second worst was “its enthusiastic endorsement of Britain’s half-baked effort to occupy Helmand in 2006”.

Jeremy’s Jackboots: Even More Jewish Hysteria About Jeremy Corbyn and the British Labour Party

“Gobsmacked” is a good English word that’s gaining ground in America, I’ve read. If it’s not familiar to you, it means “very surprised or otherwise affected,” like someone who has been unexpectedly smacked in the gob, or mouth. I’ve recently been gobsmacked not once but twice by a Scottish journalist called Stephen Daisley.

Corbyn’s a monster, Blair’s a mensch

My first gobsmacking from Daisley came when I read this article by him in the cuckservative Spectator:

ICC could investigate UK war crimes cover-up in Iraq

Leaked documents accuse the British government and the army of covering up the killing of children and the torture of civilians in Afghanistan and Iraq, according to a Panorama/Sunday Times investigation.

The accusations have been made after new evidence obtained from the Iraq historic allegations team (IHAT), which investigated war crimes carried out by British soldiers in Iraq, and Operation Northmoor, which examined war crimes in Afghanistan.

Detectives from IHAT found evidence of abuse at the British army base in Basra, Camp Stephen, after British soldiers and army staff gave statements detailing that two men were tortured and found dead with bags tied over their heads.

UK: Tories to ban councils from boycotting products from Israel under manifesto plans

The Conservative Party will include in its election manifesto a ban on public bodies from boycotting or sanctioning foreign states, reported the Sunday Telegraph.

The report noted that “the policy will cover boycotts of products or divestment from pension funds connected to foreign states.”

However, the ban is primarily aimed at the Palestinian-led Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign, which seeks to pressure Israel to abide by international law and respect Palestinian rights.

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) said the allegations are unsubstantiated but the ICC is reportedly taking the accusations 'very seriously'.

http://www.p38assn.org/Personnel/kelly-johnson.htm

The Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird (so named for its heat-resistant black paint) first flew in 1964, and since that time it has remained the world's fastest aircraft. Tanks in the inner wings and upper fuselage carry the 80,000 pounds of special, superheated fuel.
Few weapon systems have ever entered the military arena with such blinding superiority as did the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird. No weapon system has ever maintained that same degree of superiority over a period of four decades. Today, the Blackbird is still the fastest, highest-flying, most-effective reconnaissance aircraft in history, even though budgetary considerations have caused it to be withdrawn from active service.

259 areas of UK struggle to get hold of their money because ALL the local ATMs have been closed

Hundreds of communities have little or no access to a ‘hole in the wall’ cash machine, creating hardship for thousands, say researchers.

People living in 259 postcode areas across the UK struggle to get hold of bank notes to carry out simple tasks such as buying a pint of milk or paying a bus fare, they found.

And the situation is set to get worse as Britain sleepwalks towards a cashless society.

Consumer group Which? said ATMs were closing at a rate of 578 a month in the first half of this year. This is creating a ‘cash desert’, which makes life particularly difficult for the elderly, who prefer to use cash, and small businesses.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were these ATMS closed because of theft or robbery problems, or was someone signing off on orders to close these ATMs who was unable to think the entire scenario to its logical conclusion.

UK: Julian Assange’s judge and her husband’s links to the British military establishment exposed by WikiLeaks

The husband of Lady Emma Arbuthnot, the Westminster chief magistrate overseeing WikiLeaks’ founder Julian Assange’s extradition to the US, has financial links to the British military establishment, including institutions and individuals exposed by WikiLeaks.

It can also be revealed that Lady Arbuthnot has received gifts and hospitality in relation to her husband, including from a military and cybersecurity company exposed by WikiLeaks. These activities indicate that the chief magistrate’s activities cannot be considered as entirely separate from her husband’s.

Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom, a former defence minister, is a paid chair of the advisory board of military corporation Thales Group, and was until earlier this year an adviser to arms company Babcock International. Both companies have major contracts with the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me completely unsurprised at this revelation.

The US/UK are out for blood on this one; To be brutally honest, Assange will, most probably, not survive his imprisonment at Belmarsh, and may well die of a conveniently weaponized disease, which leaves no trace in the human body shortly after its toxicity has murdered him.

Prince Andrew to be quizzed on Epstein in Newsnight special

Prince Andrew has agreed to speak publicly for the first time about his friendship with the paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, in a “no holds barred” interview with the BBC’s Newsnight programme to be broadcast on Saturday night.

The prince has been the subject of fierce speculation over his relationship with the financier, who was found dead in a New York jail cell three months ago.

Epstein’s accuser Virginia Giuffre claims Prince Andrew was “an abuser, a participant” in her exploitation as a teenager and says she was coerced to have sex with him.

In Major Reversal, Farage Says Brexit Party Won't Challenge Tory-Held Seats

After initially insisting that the Brexit Party would contest more than 600 seats in the upcoming UK general election and denying rumors about a possible "alliance" with the Tories, Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage has back-tracked, big time.

Instead of challenging every seat, the BP's election strategy will leave out 317 Tory-held seats won during the last election, increasing the chances of a pro-Brexit majority. Now, the BP will focus on Labour-held seats, particularly seats situated in districts that voted in favor of 'Leave'.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wow, that is a pretty spectacular one hundred-eighty degree turn, and one that just may work to Farage's advantage.

The Battle For The Soul Of Great Britain

Authored by Mike Shedlock via MishTalk,

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and Conservative candidate Boris Johnson are in an epic battle for the soul of Britain.

Radical Marxist Corbyn
In a forced distribution scheme, Labour Proposes Workers to Get 10% of Company Shares

Rebecca Long-Bailey, the shadow business secretary, and John McDonnell, the shadow chancellor, want big companies to give employees a 10% stake in their business and a seat on their boards.

They plan to renationalize rail, water, energy and Royal Mail, increase corporation tax and the minimum wage, and extend workers’ rights.

Companies doing business with the government will have bosses’ pay capped and there will be a tax on financial transactions.

Corbyn proposes sheltering the homeless and forcing homeowners to sell their homes to renters at a "reasonable" price, set by the government.

‘Britain’s biggest snowflake’: Parents slam Brighton head teacher for banning children from playing tag because it's 'too rough'

A head teacher has been branded 'Britain's biggest snowflake' for banning children from playing 'rough' contact games like tag.

Joanne Smith told pupils at Rudyard Kipling Primary School in Brighton, East Sussex, they had to play with 'gentle hands' - banning traditional games like 'it' or 'British Bulldog.'

Instead, children are being encouraged to hold hands or clap with each other while in the playground.

Parents of children at the school reacted with fury when they were told about the 'gentle hands' policy.

Labour support COLLAPSES in the North: Election poll shows voters REJECTING Corbyn

Pollster YouGov showed Labour support is collapsing in the north, with prominent industrial counties - some of which that have voted Labour for decades - Cheshire, Cumbria, Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Merseyside now jumping ship to Tory in a spectacular show of support for the Brexiteer Prime Minister. The poll shows a drop in support for Jeremy Corbyn by an eye-watering 25 points compared to a drop in numbers for Mr Johnson by just three points. This puts the Tories on 33 percent in the stubborn region that voted overwhelmingly to leave.

The Lib Dems are at 17 percent, up 12 points since the last electoral in 2017 and Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party are up by the same amount.

Support is at 14 percent for the Brexit Party.

Children's chain Mamas & Papas collapses into administration and closes six stores making 73 staff redundant immediately just days after Mothercare went bust

Baby shop Mamas & Papas has collapsed into administration today with six store closures and up to 125 jobs axed - just three days after rival Mothercare went bust putting 2,500 people out of work.

The retailer has made 73 staff redundant with immediate effect and has put 54 further jobs at risk within its head office as another of Britain's high street chains crumbled.

Mamas & Papas said its unprofitable stores in Aberdeen, Preston, Milton Keynes, Lincoln, Leamington and Fareham closed today as a result.

The company, which had 27 stores and three concessions, said its remaining stores will continue to trade as normal, as well as online.

Sir Ian McKellen, the legendary British actor who famously played Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings movies, has claimed somewhat amusingly that he’ll be “long dead” before Brexit is completed.

The 80-year-old gave his blunt assessment while speaking to the Press Association, insisting that he has become emotionally “withdrawn” and is treating the whole British debacle as a game of chess – suggesting that MPs are somewhat clueless.

"...all I can say is they [lawmakers] are wretched players and don’t know a pawn from a queen."

Audiences will no longer hear the words, 'ladies and gentlemen', while performers should not have 'backhanded compliments' or be described as 'brave', under new gender-neutral guidelines from actors' union, Equity.

Published last week, the advice is aimed at people and venues working with LGBT performers.

Campaigners for LGBT rights say that such phrases as 'ladies and gentlemen' exclude people who do not identify as male or female, but rather as non-binary, such as singer Sam Smith.

It comes after a report by the Oil and Gas Authority said it was not possible to predict the probability or size of tremors caused by the practice.

Fracking has been suspended since a tremor in Lancashire in August.

Business Secretary Andrea Leadsom said shale gas had "huge potential" but the government was "no longer convinced" it could be extracted safely.

UK election polls: Boris Johnson soars into 17-point opinion poll lead ahead of Jeremy Corbyn

Boris Johnson and the Conservatives have surged to a huge 17-point lead at the start of the general election campaign, a major poll revealed today.

The Ipsos MORI survey shows the Tories up eight points since September to 41 per cent, while Labour is marooned on 24.

At the same time, the Prime Minister’s personal scores have leaped, including for his handling of Brexit, while those of Jeremy Corbyn have stayed at rock bottom.

The findings are excruciating for the Labour leader, suggesting that his fence-sitting on Brexit has turned into a disaster.

Surely my readers can do better than that.

'She shouldn't get £2MILLION for doing a DEADLY job': Grenfell families' fury as fire chief Dany Cotton is set to retire at 50 with gold-plated pension - as report blasts fatal 'stay put' advice that she DEFENDED despite 72 deaths

Survivors of the Grenfell Tower blaze today criticised the fire chief for retiring before the second phase of the inquiry on a pension worth up to £2million.

London Fire Brigade commissioner Dany Cotton, who will step down aged 50 next year, has been slammed in an official report for 'remarkable insensitivity'.

This came after she gave testimony that she would have done nothing differently following the tragedy in West London in June 2017 which left 72 people dead.

Now, survivors have told the London Evening Standard that Ms Cotton should participate in the second phase of the inquiry and be prohibited from retiring.

Live Updates: UK MPs Clash Over Snap Election After Brexit Delayed Again

On Monday, Brussels approved another deadline extension for the United Kingdom, giving the country time until 31 January 2020 to ratify the deal, negotiated by Boris Johnson, and leave the bloc.

Heated debates in London continue as Prime Minister Boris Johnson is urging the Parliament to hold early elections in December.

The head of the government tabled the motion on Monday, but MPs rejected the snap vote, with only 299 lawmakers supporting the bill, while it needed at least a two-thirds majority to be adopted. Now, Johnson is expected to introduce a short bill needing just a simple majority in order to hold the elections.

Boris Johnson to abandon general election bill if amendments pass allowing 16-year-olds and EU citizens to vote

The government will pull plans for a 12 December general election if parliament passes amendments to allow 16 -17 year-olds or EU nationals to vote in it, Downing Street has said.

Number 10 sources made clear that they regard the changes to the franchise proposed by Labour MPs as attempts to “wreck” the plan for a snap election put forward by prime minister Boris Johnson.

The PM’s official spokesman told reporters that it would be “logistically impossible to deliver” the changes in time for a national vote in little more than five weeks’ time.

A government bid to prevent amendments to its election bill was rejected in the House of Commons by 312 votes to 295.

George Christensen seeks meeting with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange
ABC Far North
By Samuel Davis and Adam Stephen

North Queensland backbencher George Christensen will seek the British Government's permission to meet with the WikiLeaks founder ahead of his extradition hearing next year.

**
Well, it seems at least ONE Australian politician has some courage and principle.

Mr Morrison, the Australian PM , said today that Julian Assange will not receive any special treatment !!!?? Special treatment?? We don’t want special treatment for Assange! We want just and equal treatment for Assange. Why is Assange locked up in British solitary confinement? Why is he being tortured and denied proper health care? He has never been found guilty of any crime, in the UK or anywhere else. Ever heard of Habeas Corpus Mr Morrison? That’s a legal principle our ancestors gave their lives for and it means no citizen can be locked up indefinitely without charge.

‘A 1950s show trial’: John Pilger describes ‘disgraceful’ courtroom treatment of Julian Assange by UK judge

Veteran British journalist John Pilger has blasted the “atrocious” and “appalling” treatment of Julian Assange by a judge who decided this week to reject the whistleblower’s request to delay his upcoming US extradition hearing.

“To say it is surreal is not enough, it is simply appalling,” Pilger, who was present in the courtroom on Monday, told RT’s Going Underground. Pilger accused District Judge Vanessa Baraitser of using “disgraceful” and “dictatorial gestures” toward Assange and said she was clearly biased in favor of the attorney acting on behalf of the US government.

“Her bias was incandescent,” Pilger said, adding: “I’ve never seen anything like this. It belonged in a show trial in the 1950s… Moscow, Prague, you name it.”

Fury as 'poor man's Cromwell' Speaker John Bercow BLOCKS Boris Johnson from holding a 'meaningful' vote on his Brexit deal today - as PM faces desperate battle with MPs tomorrow to get legislation through Commons for 'do or die' Halloween date

Speaker John Bercow today sparked fury by blocking Boris Johnson's latest bid to trigger a vote on his Brexit deal.

MPs denied the PM 'in principle' approval for his deal over the weekend, instead postponing the showdown and obliging him to ask the EU for an extension.

And in his latest dramatic intervention in the Brexit process this afternoon, Mr Bercow turned down a fresh effort to stage the vote.

Tories accused the Speaker - who is meant to be an independent referee on Parliamentary rules - of 'sabotage' to stop Brexit, branding him a 'poor man's Cromwell'.

How dare they take us for fools: DANIEL HANNAN blasts MPs who claim they only want to avoid No Deal and then dodge a vote on one

It is not their dishonesty that rankles. It is the insult to our intelligence.

For three years, Labour and Lib Dem MPs have twisted and turned, seeking to wriggle out of the promises they had given in advance to accept the referendum result.

In the process, they have smashed up our constitution. They have ignored the norms on which our democracy rests. They have torn precedent to shreds.

They have politicised the Speaker’s chair. They have turned us against one another. They have made our country a laughing stock abroad.

Yet still they carry on, telling us their unconstitutional schemes are somehow all about upholding our constitution, claiming that their contempt for democracy is about trusting the people.

On Saturday, they reached their lowest point yet. Having gone to court to demand that MPs have a ‘meaningful vote’ on the Brexit terms, they chose, when the moment came, to avoid that vote.

The House of Fools: Britain could have begun to heal today after the end of our Brexit purgatory but MPs instead subjected us to more agonising delay

It was the moment an exasperated nation let out a collective howl of frustration.

At precisely 2.50pm today, when Britain might finally have hoped to move ahead with Brexit, Commons Speaker John Bercow announced that MPs had again voted – by 322 to 306 – for more delays to the seemingly interminable process.

But a defiant Boris Johnson immediately vowed not to be beaten by the 'wreckers', saying any further delays to his October 31 deadline would be 'pointless, expensive and corrosive of public trust'.

And last night his ploy to outmanoeuvre the Brexit blockers was revealed, as he sent not just one letter to the EU, but three – one asking for an extension, as Parliament had compelled him to do, and two more making it clear it was not the Government's wish.

MAIL ON SUNDAY COMMENT: Can't our political class grasp this isn't a game and they're not in a college debating society?

We cannot stand much more of this. The national blood pressure has reached danger point. Can our political class really not grasp that they are no longer free to behave as if they were playing teenage games in a college debating society?

Each repeated failure by Parliament to agree on an orderly exit from the EU puts more strain on our constitution. Faith in the House of Commons as a place of wisdom, experience and responsibility, already weakening, has almost entirely gone.

Nor will it quickly recover. As the Prime Minister so rightly said during yesterday’s debate, the behaviour of MPs is corroding the public’s trust. Much more of this, and our whole tradition of parliamentary politics may be in danger. There is a feverish, short-tempered mood abroad in the country and it would be unwise for anyone to ignore it.

Brexit history made today: 1,212 days since referendum MPs to pass deal by just TWO votes

Calculations by the Daily Express show that Mr Johnson could get the deal over the line by just two votes after Labour MP Melanie Onn offered her support last night.

She urged fellow Labour MPs to "use this unique chance to help us move on and get back to helping our constituents".

"The risk of letting this final shot at a deal slip through our fingers is too great.

"Our collective hope rests on brave Labour MPs, and indeed others, who can see that," she said.

Ms Onn is one of several Labour MPs who have signalled they will back the PM.

So far 15 MPs have said they would switch to backing Mr Johnson’s new deal having voted against Theresa May’s doomed withdrawal agreement earlier this year.

A boost for workers’ rights that could win Labour round: Boris Johnson pledges set ‘highest possible standards’ into LAW – despite Jeremy Corbyn saying deal is a ‘race to the bottom’

Moderate Labour MPs could be persuaded to back the Prime Minister’s Brexit deal after he offered a series of sweeteners on workers’ rights.

Speaking in Brussels last night, Boris Johnson said he would ‘gladly’ make a commitment to maintain the ‘highest possible standards’ on environmental and social protections.

And the Daily Mail understands that Downing Street is now offering to write them into the Withdrawal Agreement Bill to make them legally binding.

Jeremy Corbyn rejects PM’s ‘sell-out deal’… 26 minutes before it is published! Labour leader is criticised for trashing agreement won by Boris Johnson without reading it

Jeremy Corbyn was criticised for rejecting Boris Johnson’s EU deal soon after it was announced yesterday – almost half an hour before the details were revealed.

The Labour leader, who has repeatedly promised to deliver the people’s wishes on Brexit, claimed the deal ‘should be rejected’ shortly after Mr Johnson revealed that an agreement had been reached.

He described it as a ‘sell-out deal’ – even though the legal text of the withdrawal deal was not actually published for another 26 minutes.

Mr Corbyn also confirmed he would support a referendum on the deal before it comes into effect – a proposition that would delay Britain’s leaving date further.

If MPs snatch disaster from the jaws of victory, they'll never be forgiven

So what exactly is new about this deal? First, there is a new 'protocol' to obviate the need for the Irish backstop.

Northern Ireland would remain in the UK customs territory but stay closely aligned to the European single market. Significantly, it would also benefit from any new trade deals we strike, giving it the best of both worlds.

There would be no border checks on the island of Ireland, but goods travelling from Great Britain to Northern Ireland would be subject to customs inspection.

If those goods were to be sold on to an EU country, the UK would collect tariffs on the bloc's behalf.

This is, of course, a delicate change, as some argue it places a customs barrier down the Irish Sea.

Boris' Brexit deal overwhelmingly backed by Brits...MPs told JUST DO IT! – Exclusive poll

In a further sign that the public is fed up with the Brexit deadlock the ComRes poll showed that nearly half of Remainers how agree that Mr Johnson’s agreement means it is time to leave the EU. Overall, some 40 per cent of voters said they support Mr Johnson’s deal compared to 31 per cent who don’t.

The comprehensive survey, which was carried out today, also showed that almost nine in ten (85 per cent) future Conservative voters support the new Brexit deal, as do more than half of Brexit Party voters (54 per cent), approaching one in five Lib Dem voters (17 per cent) and one in ten Labour voters (13 per cent).

Two thirds of 2016 Leavers say they support Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal (66 per cent), as do one in five 2016 Remainers (19 per cent).

New Developments in the Skripal Case Reveal it for the Sham it Always Was.

Earlier this month (October 2019) however, the Coroners Court issued a public statement in which is announced that the inquest into Dawn Sturgess’ death had been adjourned indefinitely.

This is an extraordinary development. It means in effect that the whole of the allegations made over the preceding 18 months, about the cause of death, the persons allegedly responsible, and all the political and propaganda barrage that went with it has now effectively being abandoned.

The Coroner’s Court cannot establish to the requisite standard how Ms Sturgess died, much less the identity of any individual or government that might be responsible.

As might be expected, the announcement by the British coroner has been met with a studied silence why the western media. The linking of Ms Sturgess’ death to the alleged activities of two Russian citizens seen in Salisbury on the day the Skripal’s became ill, and the lurid allegations about their alleged activities, have similarly collapsed.
