This Will be Theresa May's Appalling Legacy

A German general once explained that he divided officers looking for promotion into four categories: the clever and lazy, the clever and industrious, the stupid and lazy and the stupid and industrious.

He said that the clever and lazy should be appointed to senior leadership positions because they could take important decisions without trying to interfere with the work of others. The clever and industrious should be made their deputies. The stupid and lazy should be sent to the front line, but the stupid and industrious should be pushed out of the army immediately of at once because they are a danger to everyone.

Theresa May surely belongs to the fourth category of leader, because as prime minister she has shown that she has a lethal blend of tunnel vision and obstinacy that automatically produces ill-judged decisions.

'Britain faces the abyss': Top MEP warns No Deal 'becomes nearly inevitable' after the Commons rejects every alternative Brexit a second time

A senior MEP warned tonight that Britain must soon 'face the abyss' of No Deal after the Commons rejected every Brexit alternative for a second time.

Guy Verhofstadt said a hard Brexit 'becomes nearly inevitable' as MPs in London continue to reject every option.

The negotiated Brexit deal has been trounced three times and in two rounds of indicative votes, MPs have now rejected 12 motions and approved none.

Mr Verhofstadt, the European Parliament's Brexit coordinator, reacted within moments of the latest vote.

His intervention came after a leading German politician branded Brexit a 'big s**show' that is like a Shakesperean tragedy.

Writing in the Washington Post, the Foreign Secretary says there is no doubt that Britain will retain all the capabilities of a global power after Brexit

The 18th-century Scottish poet Robert Burns was perhaps the most gifted wordsmith of his age. Every foreign minister should ponder one of his lines: “Oh, would some Power give us the gift / To see ourselves as others see us!”

When I picture how others see Britain right now, I suspect old friends are shaking puzzled heads. The clash and thunder over Brexit is not an appealing spectacle. Some may feel that British politicians are acting out Monty Python sketches in real life.

So please put aside the doom-laden commentary and accept my assurance: We British are neither abandoning our neighbours nor retreating from the world. We have not taken leave of our senses.

Ex-London Mayor Ken Livingstone: ‘Lies and Smears’ Used to Accuse Labour of anti-Semitism

Former London Mayor Ken Livingstone told a meeting of hard-left Labour Party activists “lies and smears” are being used to destroy leader Jeremy Corbyn.
Mr Livingstone – who was suspended in 2016 for claiming Hitler had supported Zionism “before he went mad and ended up killing 6 million Jews”– informed pro-Corbyn supporters he was a victim of “the elite”, who were doing everything possible to destroy the chances of Mr. Corbyn taking the keys to 10 Downing Street.

Mr. Livingstone told a meeting of Labour Against The Witchhunt last week he had fallen victim to a “Labour machine” run by Blairites, according to the Daily Mail. After lamenting the fact he had been pushed to the political sidelines by ” lies and smears”, Mr. Livingstone then laid out an example of one lie he claims could be spread about himself:

UK MPs Hold Brexit Debate and New Round of Indicative Votes

British MPs are holding an indicative vote on Brexit's new direction in the House of Commons in London on Monday.

Earlier, the European Union gave the United Kingdom until 12 April to decide upon alternative withdrawal arrangements, or leave without a deal.

The UK Parliament rejected May's Brexit withdrawal agreement for the third time on 29 March; the deal would have outlined the nation's exit from the EU. Now the United Kingdom, in order to meet to its Brexit deadline extension agreement with the European Union, must either suggest a different deal by 12 April or exit the bloc without a deal in place on the same date.

Brexit: MPs reject May's EU withdrawal agreement

MPs have rejected Theresa May’s EU withdrawal agreement on the day the UK was due to leave the EU.

The government lost by 344 votes to 286, a margin of 58, and means the UK has missed an EU deadline to delay Brexit to 22 May and leave with a deal.

The prime minister said the UK would have to find "an alternative way forward", which was "almost certain" to involve holding European elections.

Labour's Jeremy Corbyn said "this deal now has to change" or the PM must quit.

Meanwhile, thousands of Leave supporters gathered outside Parliament to protest against the delay to Brexit, bringing traffic to a standstill.

Brexit:  Will Tories Risk an Election Corbyn Might Win?

Burn, Witch, Burn! — Theresa May Denounced as Liar and Traitor for Brexit Betrayal

“I could tear this place (Parliament) down and bulldoze it into the river! These fools and knaves (MPs) are voting on things they don’t even understand…. I wouldn’t vote for Theresa May’s deal if they put a shotgun in my mouth.” — MP Mark Francois, hardline Tory Brexiteer

No-deal Brexit fears rise as parliament sinks British PM May's deal

Lawmakers rejected Prime Minister Theresa May`s Brexit deal for a third time on Friday, sounding its probable death knell and leaving Britain`s withdrawal from the European Union in turmoil on the very day it was supposed to quit the bloc.
The decision to reject a stripped-down version of May`s divorce deal has left it totally unclear how, when or even whether Britain will leave the EU, and plunges the three-year Brexit crisis to a deeper level of uncertainty.

Who Created NATO? Arrows Point To UK, Not U.S

March 28 saw the 70th anniversary of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, and while many commentators have used the opportunity to review this anti-Soviet bloc’s history as a tool of post WWII imperialism, a major fallacy is found across nearly every analysis which should be clarified immediately.

The popular leftist narrative that is poisoned by this fallacy states that NATO was created as an American initiative in order to replace the British Empire as a global hegemon. This belief, as popular as it may be, is untrue and this will be clarified shortly.

Upon a deeper review of the facts, it can be stated affirmatively that NATO was never an American initiative, but was always British.

They’re making April Fools of us! Millions to face £240 hike on ‘must pay’ bills including council tax, NHS and energy from Monday

Millions are facing April Fools’ Day price increases that will add hundreds of pounds to ‘must pay’ bills.

A rise in the Government’s energy price cap comes into effect on Monday and will add an average of £117 to the annual cost of heat and light for those on a standard variable tariff.

However, this is just the tip of the iceberg, with at least ten other increases being imposed on or around the same day, covering everything from council tax and TV licences to NHS dental and prescription charges.

Self-regarding. Venal. Blind to reason. Never before have we been cursed with such incompetent MPs. STEPHEN GLOVER on why millions of Leavers AND Remainers now see our benighted ruling class as utterly beneath contempt

This spring Saturday was meant to be Day One of a glorious new era. After 46 years in the EU, Britain was supposed to be a sovereign state again, no longer partly ruled by bureaucrats in Brussels who don’t go to the bother of getting elected.

Instead of that joyous state of affairs, we are sinking further into the mire. After Theresa May’s third, and pretty resounding, defeat in the Commons yesterday afternoon, we find ourselves at the mercy of the European Union, which we thought we had escaped.

EU leaders may now offer us a lengthy extension beyond April 12, but at the cost of our taking part in Euro elections at the end of May. Some — me included — doubt whether we will ever leave. A general election and a Marxist Corbyn government may lie ahead.

'So Many WHITE People in One Place': Newsreader Jon Snow on Pro-Brexit Rally

A large pro-Brexit demonstration took place in the UK capital on 29 March, following the third defeat of UK Prime Minister Theresa May's withdrawal deal in Parliament.

Channel 4 newsreader Jon Snow, 71, has commented on the demonstration on Downing Street, 10, saying "We've just got these pictures in which were taken nearby. Police are now wearing riot gear. Police dogs are patrolling. The mood has changed. We cannot confirm whether any arrests have been made. It has been the most extraordinary day. A day which has seen… I've never seen so many white people in one place! It's an extraordinary story — there are people everywhere, there are crowds everywhere."

MUST WATCH: Former head of British Armed Forces gets cut off by Sky when he goes off-script on Syria!

An opposition group that stormed the North Korean embassy in Spain last month says it handed over data stolen from the raid to the FBI, and a law enforcement source familiar with the matter confirmed to NBC News that the bureau has received the information.

Receiving intelligence stolen from a foreign embassy in a NATO country puts the FBI in a delicate position, but there is no U.S. legal prohibition against the American government making use of the material, legal experts say.

'F*** knows. I'm past caring. It's like the living dead in here': Cabinet minister 'captures mood of the nation' on Brexit in foul-mouthed quote read out on air by Newsnight's political editor

A minister's angry tirade about the situation was revealed by Nicholas Watt, the political editor of BBC's Newsnight show, last night, after he spoke with the cabinet member.

Mr Watt said: 'In cabinet, I am picking up complete and utter despair. I said to one cabinet minister: "So why is the Prime Minister holding a vote when she's pretty sure she's going to lose?"'

'Using very strong language this cabinet minister said to me "F*** knows! I'm past caring. It's like the living dead in here".

'This cabinet minister said to me: "Theresa May is the sole architect of this mess. It is her inability to engage in the most basic human interactions that brought us here."

'[The minister continued:] Cabinet has totally broken down, ministers say their bit. She gives nothing away. One side thinks X will happen. The other side think Y will happen. And the Prime Minister decides on Z.'

A General Election looms

The No 10 spin machine is currently in overdrive to spook Brexiteers such as myself into supporting the Prime Minister’s Withdrawal Agreement. We are being told that Brexit risks being delayed, or even abandoned altogether, if we do not acquiesce to what we all know to be a flawed deal. There have even been suggestions that those MPs not supporting the agreement are somehow unpatriotic.

BREXIT VOTE LIVE: Now what?! May suffers HUMILIATION as EU exit agreement rejected AGAIN

BRITAIN was scheduled to finally unshackle itself from the EU today - but instead Theresa May has lost a vital vote to get her Brexit deal across the line in a House of Commons vote.

On Brexit day, the Prime Minister faced an uphill struggle as her key Government allies the DUP joined Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn in voting against her Withdrawal Agreement. Mrs May split the legally binding treaty segment of her Brexit deal from the declaration on future relations with the EU in order to ensure MPs could vote on it today. But today her decision to present her deal to the Commons for a third time time backfired when it was rejectewd by 286 votes to 344, majority 58.

UK Absolute Child Poverty Hits 3.7m Amid Brexit Chaos, Jumps 200,000 In One Year

Whilst the rate of absolute child poverty has decreased gradually since 2012, figures have begun to rise again, new UK government data revealed on Thursday.

Roughly 3.7m children are living in absolute poverty across the UK, an increase of 200,000 in a year, new data from the UK government has revealed.

The new figures have challenged claims from British cabinet ministers who said last year that absolute poverty rates had been falling.

The news comes after a Resolution Foundation study showed last month that the number of children living in poverty would instigate a crisis by 2023 — 2024 if the government failed to implement effective changes to universal credit and other UK benefits systems.

"Brexit-Shamed" UK Politicians Exposed for 'Forgotten Lies' in Giant Displays

A crowdfunding campaign, calling on Brits to partake in the "biggest people-funded billboard protests" in the UK has raised more than 300,000 pounds in a short period of time.

A "bunch of friends, unaffiliated to any political party or Brexit group," as they described themselves on Crowdfunder, Led by Donkeys, have successfully managed to mock senior government officials for their misleading, contradictory and ill-informed on all this Brexit statements, shared before and after the 2016 referendum

Eurosceptic Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg, who has recently made a U-turn on his position over Theresa May's Brexit deal, was left red-faced when his recent tweet on leaving the EU was placed on a billboard next to a fierce comeback.

UK Lawmakers Reject Theresa May's Brexit Deal for Third Time

Following the vote on Friday, the UK PM Theresa May addressed the parliamentarians, stressing that the government will continue to press the case for an orderly Brexit.

The House of Commons sessions took a dramatic turn on 29 March, when British MPs rejected the PM's Withdrawal Agreement with 344 votes against and 286 votes backing the deal.

After the decision was announced, Theresa May said that Brexit solutions need to be found by 12 April.

Flashback: Jill Dando raised alarm about ‘paedophile ring at BBC’

MURDERED television presenter Jill Dando tried to alert her bosses to a paedophile ring at the BBC ­involving “big name” stars, claims a former colleague.

The friend and retired BBC worker said the late Crimewatch host was told DJs, celebrities and other staff were involved in organised abuse.

But the anonymous source says “no one wanted to know” when Miss Dando raised concerns about the alleged ring and other sexual abuse claims at the BBC.

She is said to have passed a file to senior management in the mid-1990s, but they never carried out an investigation.

The 37-year-old TV presenter was shot dead on April 26, 1999, on the doorstep of her home in west London. The crime remains unsolved.

UK: Catholic Journalist Criminally Investigated for Using the Wrong Pronoun in a Tweet

Caroline Farrow, a British Catholic journalist, is being investigated by the police for “misgendering” someone in a tweet. She was contacted by authorities after making an appearance on “Good Morning Britain,” in which she engaged in a debate with a transgender activist who has a trans child.

Following this appearance, which took place last September, Farrow allegedly referred to the trans child by the wrong pronoun.

British police are now dedicated entirely to fighting perceived and imagined microaggressions on social media.

No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! Commons votes down EIGHT different Brexit proposals - including second referendum AND no deal - leaving EU exit plans mired in new level of chaos

MPs rejected every alternative Brexit voted on last night as Brexit descended into a new level of chaos.

MPs held a series of votes in the Commons on Brexit alternatives to Theresa May's deal just hours after Mrs May said she would quit once her Brexit deal is delivered - in an attempt to cajole rebel hardline Brexiteer MPs in her own party to support her.

But in a fresh blow to the Prime Minister's plans, the DUP indicated they were still unable to back the deal because it 'poses a threat to the integrity of the UK.'

It means MPs are no closer to agreeing on Brexit after they voted down all eight options in a series of 'indicative votes' designed to establish what kind of deal might secure a majority in Parliament.

On a dramatic night inside and outside the Commons, a second referendum narrowly won the most votes - losing 295 to 268. A permanent UK-EU customs union won almost as much support and had fewer votes against - defeating it 272 to 264.

RICHARD LITTLEJOHN: Mrs May has broken Brexit... now Brexit has broken her

Too little, too late. If Theresa May had possessed a shred of decency, she should have resigned long ago. Her authority was shot to pieces after her disastrous, self-inflicted general election humiliation, which cost the Tories their majority and ensured that the enemies of Brexit would prevail.

She had a second chance to do the decent thing last July when it became apparent that her dismal, defeatist Chequers withdrawal agreement was a shoddy betrayal of her oft-parroted mantra: ‘Brexit means Brexit.’

Instead of respecting the views of those who spoke for the 17.4 million people who voted to leave the EU, she even threatened to confiscate the ministerial cars of Cabinet dissenters and make them walk home.

Putin may hold separate meeting with UK business executives at SPIEF - spokesman

Russian President Vladimir Putin may hold a separate meeting with representatives of the UK business within the framework of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) that will be held on June 6-8, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Rossiya-1 television on Sunday.

He said this was a request from UK business people. "They came out with the initiative to have a separate segment within the framework of the St. Petersburg Economic Forum - a meeting of Putin with representatives of the British business. And this is very important," Peskov told the program "Moscow. Kremlin. Putin".

On March 20, President Putin met with UK entrepreneurs having business in Russia. The Russian leader took the opportunity and invited representatives of the UK business community to take part in the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. Besides, he said British business could participate in the implementation of Russian national projects.

Out with a bang? Theresa May greeted by 'muted' desk banging at packed meeting of Tory MPs amid rumours she will QUIT to get her Brexit deal across the line - despite Bercow throwing her plans into more chaos by saying it MUST have changed for a new vote

Theresa May arrived to a packed meeting of her Tory MPs tonight amid fierce rumours she is about to announce her resignation.

Ministers were barred from entering committee room 14 before the PM's arrival. Those inside greeted her with 'muted' banging of the desks as she entered.

Mrs May is rumoured to be planing to quit if it is the final roll of the dice needed to get her deal over the line later this week.

In a fresh twist, John Bercow this afternoon threatened new Brexit chaos by throwing doubts over Mrs May's efforts to get her deal through the Commons by Friday.

The Speaker warned the government today that her deal must have changed from the last time she brought it forward for a vote – and she cannot use a procedural device known as a 'paving motion' to get around him.

Six stabbed in London bloodbath: Two boys, both 17, and four men aged 18 to 26 are knifed in separate attacks on night of carnage across the capital

Six people were stabbed in London Lawless yesterday during another night of carnage - with two-17-year-old boys and four men aged 18 to 24 knifed in separate attacks.

Eyewitnesses described two men 'armed with huge knives' at the first stabbing of the night, at around 3.15pm in Kidbrooke, south east London. With claims the shock scenes took place in front of children.

Onlookers described a 'planned attack' on an 18-year-old, with desperate attempts made by locals to treat the man who was 'totally covered in blood' with injuries to his side and head. He was left fighting for his life but is now stable.

One hour later, at 4.30pm, a 26-year-old man was stabbed multiple times in Hounslow, west London before just half an hour later another man was 'slashed' just yards away from the scene of the brutal stabbing.

Keep Calm & Party On! Delayed Brexit Won't Affect 29 March UK Celebrations

The UK government has in its negotiations with the European Union agreed to extend Article 50 if the Withdrawal Agreement, but such determination is not necessarily shared by thousands in the UK determined have a drink or two on 29 March.

Among many Brexit-themed events promoted on social media and dedicated to the initial exit deadline in the end of March, many haven't been postponed despite the officially looming Brexit delay.

A Brexit party held in Bewdley, Worcestershire will go on as planned, with the organizers claimed: "We are not political at all just like a party so any excuse."

UK Parliament Holds Indicative Votes on Brexit Plan

British lawmakers are holding non-binding votes on a range of Brexit options just two days after they supported an amendment giving them control of the parliamentary agenda.

Now That Parliament Has Seized Control Of Brexit, Here's What Happens Next

LAST NIGHT’S VOTE: The government was defeated by a majority of 27 (329 vs. 302) on the Letwin amendment which seeks to change the rules of parliament on March 27 in order to provide time for lawmakers to debate and hold indicative votes. It is worth noting that three junior ministers resigned in order to vote in favour of the Letwin amendment. Furthermore, MPs voted (311 vs. 314) against the Beckett amendment (F) which called on the government to seek parliament approval on a no-deal if an agreement is not reached 1 week before the Brexit date, while the Labour amendment (D) to provide parliamentary time for lawmakers to find a majority for a different approach on Brexit was not moved. Following last night’s developments, Goldman Sachs analysts maintained their Brexit probabilities (PM May deal ratification 50%, no-deal Brexit 15% and no Brexit 35%) whilst stating that they are skeptical that this week’s votes will prove conclusive.

UK MPs vote to take control of Brexit process through 'indicative votes'

UK lawmakers have decided to take the Brexit process out of PM Theresa May’s hands, voting to accept an amendment that would break the ongoing parliamentary deadlock by changing the rules.

Parliament backed the amendment, by 329 to 302, to allow time for “indicative votes” on the finer points of the beleaguered Brexit deal. The measure was proposed by Oliver Letwin, a member of Theresa May’s Conservative party, and must be passed before it takes effect.

On Monday, May gave up mid-way through her third attempt to push a Brexit deal through, leaving the UK staring down the barrel of a no-deal Brexit, a situation Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has called a “national embarrassment.” In a last-ditch effort to force consensus, May has reportedly even offered to resign if the pro-Brexit contingent will just back her plan.

‘No Deal’ Brexit Risk Impacting UK and Irish Economies – Gold Gains On Recession Concerns

Gold rose to 4 week highs overnight prior to profit taking saw the yellow metal give up some of those gains. Gold marched higher yesterday, extending it’s recent rally due to growing, if belated, concerns over slowing economic growth and the Federal Reserve’s move to looser monetary policies again.

Gold rose 0.8% yesterday to $1,323.40 per ounce which was it’s highest level in a month. Investors have diversified into safe haven gold following news the Fed expects to suspend interest rate rises in 2019. This was something we wrote and spoke about (podcast and video interviews) as inevitable given the fragile nature of the economic recovery.

Even greater uncertainty around Brexit, just three days before Britain’s scheduled departure from the EU on March 29th may impact sterling and markets and should support gold, especially in sterling which has risen to the £1,000/oz level again.

UK’s secret war: British commandos wounded in Yemen

A number of elite British commandos have sustained injuries in direct gunfights with Yemeni forces as part of what appears to be a secretive UK military campaign in Yemen, a new report says, adding a major twist to London’s involvement in Saudi Arabia’s deadly war against its impoverished southern neighbor.

The Mail on Sunday said it can reveal that at least five members of the UK’s Special Boat Service (SBS) troops had suffered gunshot injuries in fierce clashes with members of the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who have been repelling the Saudi-led military invasion since March 2015.

The SBS personnel received treatment for leg and arm wounds in Yemen’s northern Sa’ada province, where the report said around 30 elite British forces had been based.

The injured soldiers had been taken back to the UK to recover, the report added.

Macron's Brexit anger REVEALED: 'English stopped us from building United States of Europe'

Mr Macron, the French president, was an influential agitator in last week’s seven-hour negotiation over Theresa May’s request to delay Brexit until June 30. He drove a hard bargain as he urged his EU colleagues to push Britain out of the bloc in early May, with or without a deal in place. Former politicians and experts have suggested Paris’ tough rhetoric on Brexit is the result of a six-century rivalry between France and Britain.

Theresa May’s ‘departure absolutely GUARANTEED’ – Brexiteer MP spells out WHEN PM will go

Theresa May was dealt a huge blow to her leadership over the weekend with a series of reports in the press over a Cabinet coup with ministers trying to oust the Prime Minister. Conservative Party MP and Brexit supporter Nigel Evans has claimed the Prime Minister’s resignation is “absolutely guaranteed” before he spelt out when Mrs May should leave her role. The Tory MP for Ribble Valley added the Prime Minister could still “save her legacy” by delivering the Brexit that Brits voted for in the historic 2016 vote.

He told Sky News: “Everybody knows now that the Prime Minister’s departure from Number 10 is absolutely guaranteed.

British advertising guru is calling for Google and Facebook to be broken up for 'sucking the life out of the UK'

One of Britain’s most influential advertising gurus has called for internet giants to be broken up, accusing them of ‘sucking money out’ of the economy and damaging business and society.

In a withering attack, Sir John Hegarty – the man behind the famous 1980s Levi’s laundrette advert and Audi’s ‘Vorsprung durch Technik’ slogan – said companies such as Google and Facebook must be regulated more strictly because they have ‘turned into monopolies’ and are not putting enough back into the economy.

Revealed: No. 10 leak shows how May could delay Brexit without Parliament’s approval

Mr S has now been passed a leaked briefing note from inside Number 10 which suggests the government would be able to brush Parliament aside and delay Brexit by Prime Ministerial edict. It is a confidential briefing note, offering answers to questions. The document asks if Theresa May has the ability to extend the Brexit deadline unilaterally, or if she first has to seek parliament’s approval, noting that Speaker John Bercow has said that the agreement of the House is necessary for any extension. But the briefing concludes that since MPs voted for the government to seek an extension on 14 March, that now:

‘Making the request and agreeing it with the EU is a matter for the government.’

Under this interpretation, Theresa May could declare – contrary to what she has been saying for the last two years and what everyone (including the Speaker) understood to be the law – that she does not need to consult parliament if she wants to agree an extension with the EU.

Cabinet coup: Theresa May is told she must go as ministers plot to install Michael Gove in No 10 to save Brexit

Theresa May could be ousted from No 10 within days after her Cabinet plotted to replace her with Michael Gove as a caretaker Prime Minister.

A senior Downing Street source told The Mail on Sunday last night that even Mrs May’s Chief Whip, Julian Smith, had advised her to set out her departure plans, with Environment Secretary Mr Gove emerging as the ‘consensus choice’ to succeed her.

Mr Gove is being championed by Cabinet Brexiteers who are furious about what they see as an attempted ‘coup’ by Remain-backing David Lidington, Mrs May’s de facto deputy.

UK Coup Erupts: Theresa May Cabinet In Revolt, Plotting Her Imminent Overthrow

Theresa May may have days, if not hours, left as prime minister of the UK following a full-blown cabinet coup on Saturday night as senior ministers moved to oust the UK prime minister and replace her with her deputy, David Lidington.

According to the Sunday Times, following a "frantic series of private telephone calls", senior ministers agreed the prime minister must announce she is standing down, warning that she has become a toxic and “erratic” figure whose judgment has "gone haywire."

The plotters reportedly plan to confront May at a cabinet meeting on Sunday and demand that she announces she is quitting. If she refuses, they will threaten mass resignations or publicly demand her head. The "conspirators" were locked in talks late on Saturday to try reach a consensus deal on a new prime minister so there does not have to be a protracted leadership contest.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, at the end of the day, there is no Brexit, the British people who voted for it, will be very, very angry, with a profound sense of betrayal by Parliament.

And as to what form that anger might take, I do not know. But to organizers, of any protest, make sure that those demonstrating are completely peaceful; if they are not, that will only encourage the military and police to start shooting to kill on site.

WITH A HARD BREXIT LOOMING, UK INVITES 10,000 FOREIGN TROOPS OVER FOR MILITARY EXERCISES

As the drama over Brexit continues to reach new heights, the U.K. government has raised eyebrows by announcing that it will host 10,000 foreign troops for a massive military exercise beginning the day after Brexit had been set to take place.

The announcement of the exercise has raised the specter of a post-Brexit “martial law” scenario, given that the Theresa May-led government has been examining the possibility of declaring martial law in the country in the event of a no-deal Brexit since at least this January.

According to a government press release, the NATO-affiliated military exercise known as “Joint Warrior” will take place from March 30 until April 11 and will see the U.K. host 10,000 soldiers as well as 35 warships, five submarines, and 59 aircraft and helicopters. Thirteen countries will participate, including the United States, France and Germany, and the exercise will occur in areas spaced throughout Scotland, Wales and England.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If I were a British citizen living in the UK right now, particularly if I had kids, I would be very, very concerned, and see what can be done to get the heck out of Dodge, before the excrement hits the ventilation system.

‘Monty Python’ Actor Eric Idle Begs EU to Cancel Brexit: Britain Doesn’t Want Alliance with ‘Mad F*ck Trump’

Monty Python star Eric Idle made a risible plea to the European Union to allow Britain back into the bloc, saying that the country “would much rather” be in an alliance with European countries than one with “mad fuck” Donald Trump.

On Thursday, British Prime Minister Theresa May traveled to Brussels to ask European leaders for an extension to the article 50 process, mainly in the hope that it would give her more time to pass her withdrawal agreement and ensure the UK leaves the bloc with formal trading arrangements in place.

Meanwhile Idle, who resides in Los Angeles, California, sought to undermine May’s negotiating strategy by begging the EU to let Britain back into the bloc, thus ignoring the 2016 referendum where a majority of voters opted to leave.

Famous Psychic Uri Geller Threatens UK PM May He'll ‘Stop Brexit Telepathically’

Uri Geller, the Israeli-British psychic, famous for his legendary spoon-bending trick with the use of only his psychic powers, wrote in an open letter addressed to the UK Prime Minister Theresa May that he is going to stop Brexit “telepathically”.

In his letter, Mr Geller urges Theresa May to stop the Brexit process as soon as possible, claiming that a lot of British people, as well as Uri himself, oppose the idea of Britain leaving the EU.

"I feel psychically and very strongly that most British people do not want Brexit. I love you very much but I will not allow you to lead Britain into Brexit. As much as I admire you, I will stop you telepathically from doing this — and believe me I am capable of executing it," wrote the psychic.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

FWIW, Uril was a professional nightclub magician before he "discovered" his psychic powers.

Jordan Peterson Slams Cambridge 'Not Giving Damn About Decline of Christianity'

Earlier this week, the faculty of divinity at Britain's prestigious University of Cambridge mysteriously withdrew its fellowship offer to the Canadian academic pop icon, who was scheduled to join the school for a series of lectures on the Bible later this year.

Peterson, a clinical psychologist and self-described "professor against political correctness" who came to global prominence for his opposition to the use of preferred gender pronouns on free speech grounds, and who is known for his harsh criticism of social justice warriors and radical feminism, harshly slammed Cambridge over its decision to rescind his fellowship offer in a lengthy appeal.

ERG SLAM BBC PRESENTER’S ‘OUTRAGEOUS’ CLAIM THEY WOULD BE IN THE FRONT NATIONAL

Tory MPs are absolutely livid after BBC presenter Jim Naughtie said on Today this morning that the ERG would be in the Front National if they were in France or the AfD in Germany:

“The ERG, Jacob Rees-Mogg’s group, in France would be in the National Front because that’s what they believe and in Germany they would be in the AfD. It’s only because of our system that the carapace of this party keeps them in…”

Former Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith has slammed Naughtie’s “outrageous” comments and called for him to withdraw his “misleading and untrue” remarks:

“It’s outrageous for a supposedly neutral BBC commentator to suggest the ERG represent an extremist view. They are in fact representing the majority view of the country – that the UK should leave the EU and its institutions. Conservative politicians who feel strongly about Brexit are decent, tolerant, and completely opposed to racism in every form. Mr Naughtie needs to withdraw his remarks. They are misleading and untrue.”

'RIOTS, DEATH, EVACUATION': Wild No-Deal Brexit Headlines Amid UK Media Frenzy

With Brexit negotiations drawing to a close and the possibility of crashing out from the European Union without a deal dawning on the UK, the variety of eerie UK media news stories by professing doomsday has been quite remarkable.

Theresa May's government has been battling the UK Parliament and the EU chiefs across the English Channel to settle on a Brexit strategy suitable for all. The consensus among Downing Street, MPs and businesses alike has largely been against a no-deal Brexit, with the mainstream media in the UK fuelling or perpetuating fear of what would happen if Theresa May fails to bring a Brexit deal across the line.

In the recent headlines by The Times and the Mirror Online, reported that the Queen and other senior royals will be evacuated from London in the event of a no-deal, which would also see riots erupting on the streets.

‘Dinosaurs team up on you’: Dutch historian who savaged Davos elites pillories BBC political show

Dutch historian Rutger Bregman, whose shaming of elites at Davos for not paying their taxes made him a worldwide sensation, has now launched a stinging attack on the BBC, after appearing on This Week, the outlet’s political show.

In a series of devastating tweets, he claimed he’d been invited on to the program under false pretenses. He revealed that producers had originally invited him to talk about his book, but ended up pushing him to give his opinions on Brexit and the EU, despite his protests that those issues were outside his expertise.

Bregman lashed out at the show’s presenter Andrew Neil, guests Michael Portillo and Alan Johnson, both of whom are former UK government ministers, saying the “right-wing dinosaurs” had ganged up on him, cutting him off, making up facts and changing the subject “every ten seconds.”

A British Palestinian MP seeks recognition for Palestine in the home of the Balfour Declaration

Britain’s first Member of Parliament of Palestinian descent is preparing for a historic debate on Friday to have the government give official recognition to the state of Palestine in what she says is probably the “most personal and poignant” piece of legislation she has submitted since arriving in Westminster.

Rising political star Layla Moran, a Liberal Democrat, sent shock waves through the ranks of the Conservative Party when she overturned a 10,000 majority at the 2017 General Election to take Oxford West and Abingdon which was previously regarded as a safe Tory seat. Now she’s making more waves with the second reading of her Private Members Bill this week to have Palestine recognised by Britain as a state.

UK Denies Asylum To Christian Convert From Iran Because "Christianity Is Not Peaceful"

The UK has denied asylum to an Iranian man because he said on his application that he converted from Islam to the "peaceful" religion of Christianity, according to The Independent.

The Home Office quoted excerpts from the bible in the man's rejection letter - saying the book of Revelations is "filled with imagery of revenge, destruction, death and violence," and concluded that "These examples are inconsistent with your claim that you converted to Christianity after discovering it is a ‘peaceful’ religion, as opposed to Islam which contains violence, rage and revenge."

Brexit uncertainty forces European company to stockpile toilet paper

German-owned paper company Wepa has hoarded 600 tons of toilet paper in its UK warehouses to avoid disruption of supplies in the case of a no-deal Brexit scenario.

Wepa has also opted to charter ship deliveries for importing raw materials into Britain instead of using trucks, according to the company’s managing director Mike Docker, as quoted by the BBC.

The tissue-maker reportedly owns production facilities in Bridgend, in South Wales. Wepa is said to lease extra premises of nearly 20,000 kilometers to store finished product and raw material. The firm also shipped in extra cardboard and tissue.

Trump Tweet on British Opens Spring Offensive Against the Coup

March 20, 2019 - It has become entirely clear over the past 24 hours that the President and his defenders are on an all out offensive ahead of the release of the Mueller report, which many state is coming very soon. The President opened this campaign by attacking John McCain as part of the Russiagate fraud against him and went on to attack the British instigators and sustainers of the coup. On March 18, the President retweeted a tweet by William Craddick of Disobedient Media. Disobedient Media is one of the few outfits other than LaRouchePAC, and the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity, with the guts to question the foundational premise of the coup, that the Russians hacked the DNC and Clinton Campaign Chair John Podesta. Craddick had tweeted, "Russiagate was designed in part to help the UK counter Russian influence by baiting the United States into taking a hard line against them. Leaves us all with a more dangerous world as a consequence.

Hard Brexit SHOCK: EU facing ‘VERY SIGNIFICANT’ damage with Germany losing £10BN a year

A NO DEAL Brexit would “very significantly” harm the European Union, Barclays’ chairman said in a chilling warning to Brussels just hours before Theresa May issues her request to extend Article 50 for three months to the EU27.

John Thomas McFarlane OBE, Barclays’ chairman, said a no deal Brexit would cause serious damage to the EU. Speaking at a Brexit conference, he said: "In the event of a no-deal Brexit, it would hurt the EU very significantly." And in a bid to quash the worries of the financial sector in London, which has historically spoken out against leaving the bloc without an agreement securing the future relationship between Brussels and the UK, the Barclays’ boss added the EU is likely to strike a deal with London's financial services whatever form Brexit takes.
