‘Hidden Crisis’: Extent Of Homelessness In UK Countryside ‘Underestimated’

People are sleeping rough in parked cars and barns in the countryside because the stigma attached to homelessness in rural areas is “much stronger” than in cities, a new report says.

UK High Court Refuses to Block Saudi Arms Sales

The British High Court today handed down a pair of judgement on the lawsuit by the Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT), which was seeking to stop continued British arms sales to Saudi Arabia. The open judgement was that the sales can continue without restrictions.

The lawsuit was based on UK and EU law both forbidding arms exports when there is a “clear risk” the arms would be used to break international humanitarian law, and the widespread war crimes the Saudis are committing in the course of the Yemen War.

The judge in the ruling claimed the UK government necessarily has better information on the Saudi war crimes than CAAT would, though specifics are only in a secret “closed judgement” offered for “national security reasons.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is one of the most morally horrific, yet perfectly predictable, rulings to come from the British High Court in decades; I am quite certain that executives in Britain's defence industry are heaving a collective sigh of relief that the ruling went this way, and that these merchants of death can continue selling their wares to Saudi Arabia with no legal constraints.

The US and UK are now deep partners in Saudi war crimes in Yemen; and forgive me, but being a citizen of a country deliberately involved in the commission of war crimes makes me grieve over the complete and utter absence of any kind of moral compass by the US government.

The images I am about to share with you are very graphic, but this is precisely what Saudi Arabia is doing with those bombs which have been sold to them by the US and the UK.

The Saudi bombing is killing and maiming Yemeni children for life:

Images: Yemeni children, murdered and maimed for life courtesy of US-enabled Saudi bombing runs.

Because of US-enabled port closures in Yemen, Yemeni children are dying of complications of malnutrition:

Images: Yemeni children dying from complications of malnutrition

And when you have malnutrition, you are almost certain to see disease take hold, as it has been with epidemic of cholera in Yemen:

1,310 Yemeni dead from cholera: UN's World Health Organization also warns that as many as 300,000 people could be infected by the end of August.

The Saudi military is using depleted uranium weapons in Yemen, which have caused a massive spike in cancers; still births; and massive birth defects in Yemeni children. Courtesy of Ruptly, we have the following horrific image:

Massive deformations in a Yemeni infant exposed to depleted uranium

There may worse forms of child abuse than poisoning a child in the womb, but I am having a very hard time thinking what they are right now.

All of these horrific outcomes in Yemen are totally predictable; and yet, the Royal House of Saud, the Saudi Government, and the US government and its military are perfectly morally comfortable with what they are doing here.

I, for one, as an American citizens, am absolutely not at all morally comfortable with the tragedy which Yemen has become, and will continue to be a Christian witness to this behaviour for as long as I have breath.

ALL newborns will be given a hepatitis B jab after health watchdog says 96% of cases are among immigrants

All babies are to be vaccinated against a deadly cancer-causing virus which experts fear is becoming increasingly common due to immigration.

They will be inoculated against hepatitis B, which can trigger liver cancer, in a new jab that will also protect against five other diseases.

Every baby born from August 1 will receive doses of the ‘Hexa’ jab at four, eight and 16 weeks.

Historically, infection rates of the blood-borne virus have been so low in Britain that it has not been a major issue. But there is now serious concern that the number of cases is rising, due largely to immigration from developing countries.

The truth about SAS shoot-to-kill night raids, by the hero of 200 secret ops: Soldier breaks ranks to defend elite unit from witch-hunt but says illegal killings were ‘unwritten rule of our job’

An SAS soldier has sensationally lifted the lid on the elite regiment’s controversial shoot-to-kill policy in Afghanistan – the subject of a multi-million pound investigation by military police.

In the first media interview with any SAS member to take part in operations included in the war crimes probe, the former trooper admitted to The Mail on Sunday that illegal killings were ‘an unwritten rule of our job’ but strongly defended the regiment’s actions.

His gripping account of top-secret night operations in Afghanistan comes after claims emerged that SAS members had killed unarmed civilians in cold blood and falsified mission reports.

They've ruined Christmas! EU meddling will see UK shelves empty of butter and cream

BRITAIN’S shelves will be bare of cream and butter by Christmas because of EU meddling in markets, farmers warned today.

And what festive cream and butter products there are will be cripplingly expensive – meaning families might have to eat their mince pies dry and skip the brandy butter.

Peder Tuborgh, chief executive of the farmer-owned firm, Arla, said the UK would be facing a butter and cream shortage in the run-up to the festive period.

The boss of the dairy giant said that because of a fumbled EU scheme aimed at reducing production there was insufficient milk being supplied by farmers to create vital dairy products.

Speaking to Radio 4’s Today programme on Thursday, Mr Tuborgh insisted the industry knew there would be a shortage of cream and butter at the end of the year.

Britain's warhead-watcher to simulate Trident nukes with Atos supercomputer

The Atomic Weapons Establishment, which provides warheads for the UK's nuclear weapons, is going to use a Bull supercomputer to simulate Trident nuclear warhead explosions.

Warhead components change over time through ageing, obsolescence and redesign, which impacts their operational efficiency. The AWE can't run test explosions any more, under the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (to which the UK is signed up), which bans emission of nuclear yield (radioactive debris). Instead, AWE simulates atomic explosions with digital modelling and needs supercomputing facilities to do so.

SAUDI ARABIA ‘TOP OF THE LIST’ OF FOREIGN FUNDING FOR BRITISH TERRORISTS – THINK TANK 

Britain’s major trade and security partner in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia, is the main source of funding for Islamist extremism in the UK, a damning new report by the neo-conservative Henry Jackson Society (HJS) claims.

According to the HJS, money donated to terrorist organizations operating in Britain can be traced back to the Gulf states.

It says the Saudis’ 60-year commitment to the diffusion of Wahhabism, a hardline version of Islam, has led to the funding of British mosques and institutions linked to the wave of attacks in Europe over the last few years.

“There is a clear and growing link between foreign funding of Islamist extremism and the violent terrorism we have witnessed across the UK and Europe,” said the report’s author, Tom Wilson.

“The key now is to get ahead of the issue and find out the full extent of what has been going on. A public inquiry would go some way to informing the debate.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And one of the biggest areas of trade between the UK and Saudi Arabia has been in weapons.

Does UK’s lucrative arms trade come at the cost of political repression?

The UK has made 10 times more in arms sales to Saudi Arabia than it's given in aid to Yemen

UK activists demand end to Saudi Arabia, UAE arms sales

As long as the money is made, the UK's government, and the UK merchants of death, do not give a rat's anus as to how, or against whom, those weapons are used. Let's look at the genocide Saudi Arabia is inflicting in Yemen, shall we?!?

Saudi campaign has killed 1,400 Yemeni kids, UNICEF says (It is now July, 2017; we can be reasonably certain that the figure is considerably higher at this point).

And the domestic cost of violence and death is simply a small price to pay, according to the UK government, courtesy of radicalised youth who suddenly act out against their neighbors, or the general population as a whole.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I not surprised here?!?

It's all about the money to be gained from arms sales to the Saudis (and we know that they have been using DU weapons in Yemen).

And Prime Minister May, if it comes out that it was the UK who sold Saudi Arabia this horrific weapon, I will hold the government of the UK reprehensibly responsible for this horrific choice.

The sharp correction or crash may come about due to two primary factors – Brexit and a fall in real wages as they fail to keep pace with rising inflation.

THERESA MAY ‘SITTING’ ON UK TERRORISM FUNDING REPORT TO PROTECT SAUDI ALLIES

Prime Minister Theresa May is withholding a Home Office report on foreign funding of British terrorist organizations because exposing the truth could sour relations with the UK’s major trading and security partner, Saudi Arabia.
The report, commissioned to investigate foreign states funding extremist groups in the UK, has yet to be made public despite being completed six months ago. The government’s reluctance to share it has left many concerned about how ethical Britain’s ongoing diplomatic relationship with the Gulf kingdom is.

Green Party co-leader Caroline Lucas branded the delay “astonishing.”

“The government is sitting on this report but refusing to publish it or give any reason for their continued secrecy,” the Brighton Pavilion MP said in a statement.

“To defeat terror it’s vital that politicians have full view of the facts, even if they are inconvenient for the government.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The British people deserve to know what is going on here; withholding this report is simply going to damage the Prime Minister's credibility greatly, and particularly if there are (and this will probably be the case) any more acts of violence by radicalised Middle Eastern immigrants.

UK Teenager, Aged 18, Charged With Running DDoS-For-Hire Service

A teenage student has been charged with running a supplying malware that was used for launching distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks against websites of some of the world's leading businesses.

Jack Chappell, an 18-year-old teenager from Stockport, is accused of helping cyber criminals with his DDoS booter service (DDoS-for-hire service) to flood millions of websites around the world with the massive amount of data and eventually bring them down, making them unavailable to their users.

Among the victims that were allegedly attacked by Chappell's malware are the National Crime Agency (NCA), T-Mobile, O2, Virgin Media, the BBC, Amazon, Vodafone, BT, Netflix, and NatWest that had its online banking systems down in a 2015 cyber attack.

Big Lizzie's location is top secret, says MoD (But anyone - including Mr Putin - can track her on this FREE smartphone app!)

She is Britain’s state-of-the-art £3.1 billion aircraft carrier which Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon has promised to protect from ‘envious’ Russian President Vladimir Putin.

And when The Mail on Sunday asked the Ministry of Defence for details of HMS Queen Elizabeth’s course during her sea trials, security-conscious naval chiefs would confirm only that she was somewhere in the North Sea.

Yet all any Kremlin spy or ship-spotter needs to do to keep track of the 65,000-ton vessel is download one of the mobile phone apps which are showing her every move.

The free apps, Vessel Finder and Marine Traffic, plot her progress by the minute – making a mockery of Sir Michael’s pledge to protect the carrier from Russian intelligence-gatherers.

Russia calls Britain’s new aircraft carrier ‘convenient target’

The Russians could also have pointed out that the F-35 strike fighters the new carrier will deploy are a load of rubbish and beset with so many problems they are years behind schedule and the programme billions over budget.

It also remains to be seen whether the aircraft carrier is an obsolete sitting duck or not, in the new naval environment where hypersonic artificially intelligent cruise missiles are being introduced.

'They're obsessed' Cable rants at 'Brexit militants' who will 'destroy UK cancer research'

VINCE Cable tore into Brexiteers as the modern militants, who lay down "absurd red lines" for EU negotiations and are obsessed with the European Court of Justice (ECJ).

Vince Cable has hit out at Brexiteer "militants" who are obsessed with cutting ties with the European courts "for no reason but rhetoric".

The Liberal Democrat issued the scathing rant during an interview on Sky News this morning.

Mr Cable is likely to be elected leader of the party this month as no colleagues have yet to challenge the 74-year-old.

UK's 'extreme mass surveillance' web snooping powers face legal challenge

The High Court has granted Liberty permission to challenge part of the UK's "extreme mass surveillance regime", with a judicial review of the Investigatory Powers Act.

The law forces internet companies to keep logs of emails, phone calls, texts and web browsing histories and to hand them over to the state to be stored or examined. The civil liberties campaign group wants to challenge this mass collection, arguing that the measure breaches British people's rights.

In a separate case in December, the European Court of Justice ruled the same powers in the previous law governing UK state surveillance were unlawful.

Britain's only underground goldmine to REOPEN with plans to extract 200,000 oz of gold

A Scottish mining company has put wheels in motion to begin extracting an estimated 200,000 oz of gold at Cononish Mine, in the village of Tyndrum from April next year.

Scotgold Resources Ltd has backing from Australian investors and hopes that the venture will also bring jobs to the local area in the southern Highlands.

John Riley, chairman of Strathfillan community council, has said: “We live in a tourist economy and with the general economy being affected by the rising price of fuel and everything else right now, we don't want to be too reliant on that.

“Work in the tourism industry tends to be cyclical, which causes problems with people having no work off-season.

“The gold mine opening would solve some of these problems and provide the opportunity of skilled work for a long time.”

Leeds hack 'weaponising' Ubuntu for NHS Windows take out

A quiet revolution has been rumbling in Leeds. It may not seem revolutionary: a gathering of software developers is scarcely going to get people taking to the barricades in these uncertain times, but the results of this particular meetup could shape access to NHS PCs in the coming years.

The gathering in question was a hack week that ran until June 30 is to find a way to deploy NHSbuntu, a version of Ubuntu built for the NHS, on 750,000 smartcards used to verify clinicians accessing 80 per cent of applications – excluding those for clinical use – on millions of NHS PCs.

If successful, NHSbuntu would replace the current system using Windows. Ultimately, the aim is to replace Windows on the desktop, too. Smartcard recognition has been the huge barrier.

Survivors of Grenfell fire barred from Kensington council meeting, ‘risk disruption’

Grenfell Tower fire survivors have been banned from attending the first meeting of senior local councillors since the tragedy – because there is a “risk of disruption.”

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea cabinet is meeting privately on Thursday, where its controversial Conservative leader, Nicholas Paget-Brown, will lead the council’s business.

Grenfell residents ‘demand voices are heard’ in public inquiry
Residents were told the meeting was held behind closed doors because of “security and public safety concerns” following the storming of the Town Hall a fortnight ago. Protesters occupied the council building on the Friday following the tragedy in anger at the council’s response.

According to the local authority’s website, councillors will discuss the fire with support officers and “invited guests (if any).”

The press is also not allowed in the meeting.

There will be no written reports other than minutes for the meeting, which is described as an “oral item.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Would someone please politely tell Nicholas Paget-Brown, in small words he might possibly understand, that the optics on this ban are officially horrible, and that the way this is being handled defies logic, decency, and common sense?!?

Banking Giant Tells Clients to Prepare for Government Collapse, Third General Election

Citigroup has warned clients that Theresa May’s position as prime minister is “unsustainable”, warning them to prepare for the government to collapse within a matter of months.

The multinational banking corporation believes the parliamentary majority which the prime minister secured through her deal with Ulster’s Democratic Unionist Party is “not comfortable enough for crunch votes”, according to a report in The Times.

“In our view, May’s premiership is not sustainable beyond a few months, perhaps a year at most, and will be under pressure in the face of contentious parliamentary votes from the very beginning,” they said.

Highlighting the “numerous opportunities for parliamentary rebellion” over Brexit, they suggested there could be a “harsh backlash” from what it describes as “the anti-EU British media” if her government gives way on items such as the 100-billion euro settlement demand.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Considering Citigroup's Eurocentric "vision", which is solidly anti-Brexit,no matter how it handicaps small businesses in Europe, this position is hardly surprising.

'Ridiculous hubris' Brussels wants to retain INDEFINITE right to fine Britain AFTER Brexit

BRUSSELS wants to retain the indefinite right to bring legal cases against Britain and fine it for breaches of European Union law even after it has left the bloc, it emerged tonight.

Eurocrats dropped a Brexit bombshell on Theresa May as they published a list of extensive demands which would see the European Court of Justice (ECJ) and the EU Commission retain their stranglehold on the UK long after our departure.

The dynamite revelations were buried deep in a series of positioning papers published by Michel Barnier’s team this evening and are likely to be ferociously opposed by British negotiators.

Brexit 'will blow hole in budget', EU commissioner warns

The UK's departure from the EU will leave a budget shortfall of at least €10bn (£8.8bn; $11.4bn), the budget commissioner has warned.

Günther Oettinger said the bloc must either spend less or find new money to fill the gap, equivalent to an estimated 16% of the entire budget.

Among the options on the table could be less generous payments to farmers or a tax on financial transactions.

"A big country, a net contributor is leaving," Mr Oettinger said.

"That must have consequences."

The BBC thinks pedophilia is just another “sexual orientation” akin to being gay or transgender

The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) is playing with fire by allowing an anonymous author to publish articles on its platform that aim to minimize the utter depravity of pedophilia. Similar to what the far left publication Salon tried to do several years back (along with The New York Times), the BBC seems to agree with this author that pedophilia isn’t necessarily a disorder to be treated with disdain, but rather a sexual orientation like homosexuality that simply requires “help.”

He said: “There was a time when armies were easy to generate. That time has long gone. Land forces, land power is a very complex exercise in human interaction with the use of tanks.

It takes a long time to build those forces. It takes 15-16 years to build an F-16 pilot. It takes 15-16 years to build a platoon sergeant

Queen’s taxpayer-funded income doubles to £82mn, up 167% since 2012

The government has almost doubled the Queen’s income to £82 million, apparently to cover the cost of “essential works” at Buckingham Palace. Republicans say funding for the monarchy must be tightly controlled, especially under austerity.

The Crown Estate, which includes Regent Street, St James’ Park, and thousands of acres of farmland, coastline and forests, made profits totaling £328.8 million ($419 million) in the year to March 2017, up eight percent on the previous year.

The government has therefore granted an increase in the Sovereign Grant – the percentage of profits from the Crown Estate that is paid out to Her Majesty.

The Queen will now get 25 percent of the Crown Estate’s profits for the next ten years, up from 15 percent.

HMS Windows XP: Britain's newest warship runs Swiss Cheese OS

“A computer screen inside a control room on HMS Queen Elizabeth was displaying Microsoft Windows XP – copyright 1985 to 2001 – when a group of journalists was given a tour of the £3 billion warship last week,” reported Deborah Haynes of The Times, accurately describing the copyright information on the XP loading screen.
