Brexit bill FARCE: UK to give EU £450,000 for Brussels' CRACKDOWN on democracy

BRITAIN will be helping the European Union combat movements similar to Brexit if the Government agrees to part with Brussels’ extortionate divorce bill demands.

The EU already spends millions in an attempt to shut down the spread of anti-Brussels news and if Britain parts with the reported figure of £40 billion, a chunk of that will be used to defeat Euroscepticism, according to Ukip leader Henry Bolton.

British warship HMS Diamond back in Portsmouth after BREAKING DOWN in the Gulf

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.

The £1billion destroyer HMS Diamond returned from Portsmouth to get its propulsion system fixed after it broke down in the Gulf.

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.

Royal Bank of Scotland culls 1 in 4 branches, blames the interwebz

Taxpayer-owned Royal Bank of Scotland Group is shutting 259 branches and slashing 680 jobs, blaming the shift to customers banking online.

The closures involve 62 RBS and 197 NatWest branches.

So next time the bank has an outage, customers living in areas where branches have shut will just have to resort to bartering.

Kate Middleton’s Uncle Sentenced For Punching Wife In The Face

The uncle of the Duchess of Cambridge has been sentenced for striking his wife with a “left hook” in the face during an argument. Gary Goldsmith was branded a “nasty drunk” by the court.

The 52-year-old pleaded guilty to one count of assault by beating. He was sentenced on Tuesday at Westminster Magistrates’ Court after he knocked Julie-Ann Goldsmith, 47, to the ground after she accused him of taking drugs during a drunken fight.

MORGAN STANLEY, WITH A LONG RAPSHEET FOR CORPORATE CRIMES, SAYS JEREMY CORBYN HOLDING THEM TO ACCOUNT WOULD HURT THEM WORSE THAN THE WORST BREXIT

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.

What's wrong with this picture?!? EVERYTHING!!

UK could pay £50bn Brexit divorce bill after bowing to EU pressure

The UK has bowed to EU demands on the Brexit divorce bill in a move that could result in the UK paying £50bn to Brussels, in an attempt to get France and Germany to agree to move negotiations to trade.

Non-stop behind-the-scenes negotiations have led to a broad agreement by the UK to a gross financial settlement of £89bn on leaving the bloc, although the British expect the final net bill to be half as much.

SAUDIS WOO TORY MPS WITH LAVISH DINNERS & HOTELS AS 20 MILLION YEMENIS STARVE

The Saudi blockade of Yemen has left 20 million people on the brink of starvation, but some UK parliamentarians prefer not to notice, instead filling up their bellies with the help of royal hospitality of Riyadh, measuring in tens of thousands of pounds.

According to the Middle East Eye, members of UK parliament have accepted some £94,189 ($126,939) worth of luxury hotel stays, lavish dinners, business class flights, donations and other forms of hospitality from the Saudi government this year alone.

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: 

To the knotheads in NABIS; the baddies will not surrender their guns, making the next rise in gun crime after this "surrender" a dead moral certainty!!

Time Prime Minister please: May could be banned from all her local pubs

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.”

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

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”.

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.
