200,000 homes ditch their BBC TV licences in a year prompting funding crisis at the corporation as No10 says it wants Netflix-style subscription system

The true scale of the BBC's licence fee crisis has been laid bare as figures reveal an alarming drop in the number of people paying the charge.

Around 200,000 fewer households currently have a TV licence compared to a year ago, despite a continuing rise in the UK's population.

This comes amid claims that Downing Street is planning to scrap the fee and turn the broadcaster into a Netflix-style subscription service.

Outrage as Downing Street adviser backs EUGENICS, mandatory birth control and giving kids mind-altering drugs

Barely over a government-rocking reshuffle, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s office has moved onto a fresh scandal, hiring an adviser who advocates eugenics, mandatory contraception, and giving children mind-altering drugs.

Andrew Sabisky was one of the hires made by 10 Downing Street after Johnson’s chief adviser Dominic Cummings made a high-profile call to stock the office with “misfits and weirdos”.

Even the controversial Cummings might have got more than he bargained for, as it has emerged that 27-year-old Sabisky once called for a “universal contraception” program to stop the creation of a “permanent underclass,” and also said that the benefits of brain-boosting drugs were “probably worth a dead kid”.

'Amazon Prime' fraud gang net themselves more than £1million including one victim's life savings with cold calls claiming to represent the online subscription service

'The scam is carried out by phone call, with the victim receiving an automated phone message that they have been charged for an Amazon Prime subscription. They are subsequently instructed to 'press 1' to cancel the transaction. When they do this, they are directed to a fraudster posing as an Amazon customer service representative.

'The fraudster advises the victim that their subscription was purchased fraudulently and that remote access to their computer is required in order to fix a security flaw that will prevent it from reoccurring.

'The unsuspecting victim then downloads software which grants the scammers remote access to their computer, including personal and financial information.

'Other variants of the crime involve fraudsters stating that the recipient is eligible for a refund for an unauthorised transaction on their Amazon account.'

'Police were WRONG to check my thinking': Businessman's 'transphobic' tweets were LAWFUL and officers breached HIS rights by acting like 'the STASI' and arriving at his work to quiz him about 'hate incident', judge rules

Announcing the court's decision, Mr Justice Julian Knowles said Mr Miller's tweets were 'lawful' and that the effect of the police turning up at Mr Miller's place of work 'because of his political opinions must not be underestimated'.

He added: 'To do so would be to undervalue a cardinal democratic freedom. In this country we have never had a Cheka, a Gestapo or a Stasi. We have never lived in an Orwellian society.'

He also said: 'The claimant's tweets were lawful and that there was not the slightest risk that he would commit a criminal offence by continuing to tweet.

'I find the combination of the police visiting the claimant's place of work, and their subsequent statements in relation to the possibility of prosecution, were a disproportionate interference with the claimant's right to freedom of expression because of their potential chilling effect.'

UK GOVERNMENT TO GIVE OFFICE OF COMMUNICATIONS POWER TO POLICE INTERNET CONTENT

SOURCE: INDEPENDENT UK

The UK government will give Ofcom new regulatory powers to police what is posted on the internet, it has said. The decision was made as part of a new “online harms“ plan that ministers say will protect people as they use the internet.

However, critics say the addition of new rules and regulations could stifle free speech and give the government unprecedented powers to decide what is posted and available on the internet. Campaign group Big Brother Watch has called the plans “dangerous and wrong” and suggested they are “a direct attack on the fundamental right to freedom of expression”.

Ofcom will have the power to enforce a “duty of care” on companies such as Facebook and Twitter “to protect users from harmful and illegal terrorist and child-abuse content”. It will be able to punish companies that fail in that duty.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, "depicting violence", even if it is legitimate news photos or videos of the casualties of war, such as, let's say, Yemeni infants, children, women, and the medically fragile elderly, who are being killed and maimed for life by a US/Saudi military joint alliance, are now forbidden, because it may give Brits the possible notion, that some of their governmental international policies, may possibly be immoral and wrong?!?

I would politely suggest to the current British government, that Orwell's masterpiece "1984" was a cautionary tale; NOT A BLOODY HOW-TO MANUAL!!

London Attack: West’s Terrorists Bite the Hand that Feeds (Again)

By Tony Cartalucci

In yet another headline-grabbing terror attack – an armed man in south London left several injured – some seriously – with the suspect himself killed at the scene by police.

Entirely predictable was the fact that the suspect named as Sudesh Amman – was a known terrorist – having been previously arrested, tried, and imprisoned for terror-related offenses, only to be inexplicably released early...

Forget about balance? BBC now a climate activist saying it’s a ‘privilege’ to have ‘global icon’ Greta Thunberg front new series

With the turmoil surrounding the BBC right now, warring talent arguing over their salaries, the hunt for a new Director General and the bound-to-get-uglier row over the tv licence fee, excitedly announcing a new climate change documentary all about Swedish teen Greta Thunberg shows a palpable lack of feel for the public mood.

But she is exactly the sort of poster child the BBC is looking for, as it turns to climate activism in a bid to boost its audience figures.

The national broadcaster is very much a self-appointed custodian of all things climate. Look at their What is Climate Change website and you will see plenty of broad facts about changes in the environment, but nothing to suggest that environmental change is largely part of the wondrous cycle of nature and not entirely the fault of man. That is where the BBC case lies.

Britain's shame as poverty skyrockets with children and pensioners worst hit

Poverty has increased for children and pensioners over the last five years, a new study suggests.

The Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) said that, despite rising levels of employment, in-work poverty has also gone up because often people's pay, hours, or both, are not enough.

Just over half of people in poverty are in a working family, compared to 39% twenty years ago, according to the research.

Irish election result is a victory for Nationalism

Once upon a time Gerry Adams, the leader of Ireland’s nationalist party, Sinn Fein, could not be heard speaking on the BBC. He was branded a terrorist and his voice was dubbed. How times have changed. Now his party, led by Mary Lou McDonald, has stormed to victory in the Irish elections. Having won the largest percentage of the vote at 24%, Sinn Fein has ended the decades long domination of Fine Gael and Fianna Fail in what was effectively a two-party political system.

McDonald now seeks to form a government with other left-wing Irish parties and although she doesn’t expect to form a coalition with Fine Gael or Fianna Fail, she would still participate in talks with representatives of the parties: “I also have consistently said that I will talk to and listen to everybody, I think that is what grown-ups do and that is what democracy demands.”

The Dragon's Den-style project set-up by Prince Andrew has removed the the Duke of York's name from its website, amid backlash from sponsors over his friendship with paedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.

Britain's broadband blackout scandal: Almost two-thirds of internet users suffer outages or painfully slow speeds every month, report reveals

Some 41 per cent of those who complained said their broadband supplier handled the case badly. Simply contacting the company often involves negotiating complex automated telephone systems and being kept on hold.

In fact, making a complaint is so difficult that very few people, around one in three ever make one on the issue of poor speeds.

The survey, by price comparison experts comparethemarket.com, found people who work from home are particularly hard hit by the failing broadband system.

At the same time, the current voluntary compensation scheme puts no pressure on firms to improve services.

But as predicted costs are more than one per cent of the Met's annual budget, it may fall down to the Home Office to help out with costs via a 'special grant', which is funded by taxpayers' money.

Beyond Ukraine: America’s Coming (Losing) Battle for Eurasia

by Maj. Danny Sjursen, USA (ret.) Posted on February 06, 2020

Academic historians reject anything smacking of inevitably. Instead they emphasize the contingency of events as manifested through the inherent agency of human beings and the countless decisions they make. On the merits, such scholars are basically correct. That said, there was something – if not inevitable – highly probable, almost (forgive me) deterministic about the two cataclysmic world wars of the 20th century. Both, in retrospect, were driven, in large part, by collective – particularly Western – nations’ adherence to a series of geopolitical philosophies.

‘No right to privacy from the opposite sex’: 13yo girl takes school trans inclusion rules to UK High Court

Some British schools are trying to be more accommodating to trans students at the expense of others, a 13-year-old has alleged in court documents. She says their guidelines go against girls’ desire for privacy, dignity and safety.

The new Trans Inclusion Toolkit released by Oxfordshire County Council last February instructs that students should have access to toilets, changing rooms, dorms and similar spaces, in accordance with the gender they identify as.

A 13-year-old girl has challenged the rules, saying the council never bothered to ask non-trans students like her how they felt about them. “Under these guidelines I have no right to privacy from the opposite sex in changing rooms, loos, or on residential trips,” she said in legal papers filed with the High Court in London on Thursday.

PC gone berserk: Asian ‘rape gang’ allowed to freely roam streets of London as cops told “find other ethnicities” to investigate

The extreme liberalism that has overwhelmed most European countries is now beginning to overwhelm common sense and public safety, as one British detective’s claims indicate.

As reported by the UK’s Telegraph, at least one Asian “grooming gang,” which is just a fancy term for rape, was permitted to continue roaming the streets of London to terrorize young females after British cops were told to “find other ethnicities” to investigate.

Seems like law enforcement in the ‘international city’ of London is subjective based on skin color, tone, and country of origin. Way to go, Mayor Sadiq Khan.

LONDON POLICE MOVES FORWARD WITH FULL-TIME DEPLOYMENT OF FACIAL RECOGNITION TECH THAT CAN’T ACCURATELY RECOGNIZE FACES

The London Metropolitan Police sure loves its facial recognition tech. But it’s an unrequited love. The tech doesn’t appear to have done anything for the Met during its past deployments.

Documents obtained by Big Brother Watch in 2018 showed the Met’s deployments had rung up a 98% false positive rate in May of that year. Nothing improved as time went on. Subsequent documents showed a false positive rate of 100%. Every "match" was wrong. Not exactly the sort of thing you want to hear about tech capable of scanning 300 faces per second.

This followed an earlier report covering a test run by the South Wales Police at a handful of public events. In comparison, the South Wales tests were a success: a mere 92% of its matches were false positives.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When a technology has not matured to the point of being reliable, it is pathologically insane to deploy it until it is.

British Army and Royal Navy hit by support problems

arship and army equipment availability in the UK's Royal Navy and British Army has been hit by poor contractor performance, a shortage of spares, and a rising operating tempo, according to the country's Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S) organisation.

"We failed to achieve the British Army sustainability target during the year and a demanding operational tempo was a significant contributing factor for the Navy Command support targets not being met," said the report.

The coins, bearing the words 'peace, prosperity and friendship with all nations' as well as the Brexit date of January 31, 2020, have sparked a furious backlash among pro-EU campaigners.

Smart motorways ARE death traps and the Government was misled over their safety says minister who introduced them as full review is announced

The government is set to overhaul the smart motorway network after revealing 38 people have been killed on them in the last five years and MPs were misled over their safety.

Former minister, Sir Mike Penning, who approved the expansion of the scheme, claims the government was misled over the safety of taking away the hard shoulder on stretches of motorway during a trial in 2010.

Four people were killed on a section of the M1 in just 10 months after being hit by traffic in a busy lane that used to be a hard shoulder.

On one section of the M25 near misses have increased 20-fold since the hard shoulder was taken away, BBC Panorama has revealed.

Smart motorways do not have a hard shoulder and drivers who break down can be trapped in the speeding traffic.

The charity said that until 2018 it got more than £3m a year from NHS England, but that 90% of its funding now came from public donations. Combat Stress still gets more than £1m from NHS Scotland and will continue to take on new cases there and in Northern Ireland.

Why did the NHS let me change sex? Star witness in court battle against clinic that fast-tracked her gender change aged 16 reveals what happened when she made a cry for help

She says she has been contacted by 'hundreds of young adults' — some only 19 or 20 — who claim the treatment has not solved their problems.

Yet, demand for gender identity treatment is growing. More than 13,500 people are on waiting lists, according to BBC research earlier this month.

The Government has also launched an inquiry into the explosion in the number of children wanting to change sex.

In 2009/10, 40 girls under 18 were referred to doctors for gender treatment in England.

By 2017/18, the number had soared to 1,806. Over the same period, annual referrals for boys increased from 57 to 713.

Post-Brexit Britain Eyes New Forceful Role In Asia

Authored by David Hutt via AsiaTimes.com,

When Britain leaves the European Union (EU) later this month, it will be free to chart its own independent course in foreign affairs and fulfill years of promises to build a truly “global Britain.”

That will likely entail a historic realignment of its foreign policy interests from the Middle East and Africa to the “Indo-Pacific,” one of the three “primary centers of the global economy and political influence”, after North America and Europe, according to the United Kingdom’s last National Security Capability Review published in March 2018.

The Indo-Pacific is currently home to most of the world’s largest and fastest growing economies, as well as the center of US-China geopolitical competition, which isn’t likely to dampen down anytime soon.

HPV vaccine 'will almost eradicate the risk of cervical cancer for young women', UK Government says... but researchers say the evidence is 'insufficient'

A new study says past research has over-estimated how effective the jab is because it's too soon to record actual cervical cancer rates.

But a statement from Public Health England says real-world data shows HPV infections have dropped from 15 per cent to fewer than two per cent in 10 years.

HPV causes almost all cases of cervical cancer and many experts believe that by stopping it spreading they will be able to all but wipe out the disease in England.

Separate statistics released today, however, show the number of women being diagnosed with cervical cancer has risen sharply in the years since the jab was introduced.

Putin Calls for a New System Guided by the UN Charter… But Is It Possible?

Putin is obviously in the bankers hip pocket if he wants The UN to be a global government. Russia still has a central bank controlled by the international bankers. He is a big promoter of the holocaust story. And like Trump he is hooked up with Chabad and Israel.

After speaking about Russia’s vision for internal improvements, Putin shifted towards the international arena saying:

“I am convinced that it is high time for a serious and direct discussion about the basic principles of a stable world order and the most acute problems that humanity is facing. It is necessary to show political will, wisdom and courage. The time demands an awareness of our shared responsibility and real actions.”

US threatens trade war with Britain over digital tax for US tech giants: Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin warns of tariffs on UK car makers after Sajid Javid pledges to target Google and Facebook

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Donald Trump will personally heap pressure on Boris Johnson to drop the proposed levy as Sajid Javid insisted it will go ahead.

Mr Javid said the digital services tax will be introduced from April but will only be a temporary measure until an international agreement is in place on how to deal with big online companies like Google and Facebook.

But Mr Mnuchin was clear the White House remains ardently against the move as he hinted retaliatory tariffs could be imposed on the UK's car industry if the tax is rolled out.

'I was very convincing': Academic who detransitioned four years after living as Rachel says he was 'hurtled through the system' and would never have changed gender if he was assessed properly by therapists

He started exploring the idea of changing his gender after the death of his third child and the breakdown of his second marriage, buying illegal hormones off the Internet in 2014.

Just a few weeks later he was in what he calls the 'NHS gender identity machine' and was being fast tracked through a process that usually takes years.

He flew to Thailand to have operations to remove his testicles and reconstruct his face to look more like 'Rachel' and less like Richard.

But when he returned to the UK and the Health Service offered him surgery to fully transition, he started to doubt everything.

He says he soon realised he was 'using gender transition to escape his past' and claims he regrets his operations 'every day'.

Speaking on Victoria Derbyshire today, he said: 'For the sake of the nation's sanity, we first need to explore if something else is going on before people transition.'

His new boss told us, “There’s a lot of attention on Prince Harry at the moment. With that attention then demand for a Prince Harry look-alike increases. We’d had several applications but nobody that looked right. Then Prince Harry turned up and he was perfect. He can do the voice and everything. We’re sure he’ll be a success.”

Is free speech now dead in the UK’s Labour Party?

Stuart Littlewood looks at how Labour Party leadership hopefuls have embraced the Tory pro-Israel “Board of Deputies of British Jews’” pledges of obedience and invites those hopefuls – and the Board of Deputies – to sign up to the “Eleven Red Lines” of anti-Palestinianism. >>

Minsters warned Britain's electricity network needs URGENT upgrade to cope with increased demand from electric cars or risk future blackouts

With pure-electric passenger car registrations rising by 144 per cent in 2019 and due to soar in the coming years, the Electric Vehicle Energy Task Force claims the national grid will crumble under increased demand for power.

It warned ministers who commissioned the report that without a 'smart charging' infrastructure in place, there is a real risk of blackouts across the country in the future - similar to those that left 1million Britons without power in August.

Chemicals in tap water 'may cause 5% of all bladder cancer cases in Europe' as scientists find the UK has one of the highest rates of contamination

Researchers have linked drinking, showering and bathing in the water to more than 6,500 cases of the disease in 26 countries across the continent.

They estimate 1,356 bladder cancer diagnoses in Britain since 2005 were caused by contaminated water, making up a fifth of all cases in the EU.

Long-term exposure to a group of chemicals called trihalomethanes (THMs) is thought to be the cause.

The chemicals, shown to be carcinogenic in animal studies, are formed as an unintended byproduct when water is disinfected with chlorine at supply plants.

Britain failed to tell EU countries about 75,000 crimes 'including rapes and murders' committed here by foreigners and then covered up the scandal for fear of damaging UK reputation abroad

The error went undetected for five years, during which one in three alerts on offenders which would have been sent from the police national computer to EU authorities were not delivered - potentially including rape and murder cases.

This means dangerous foreign offenders once released from prison could return to their home countries without local authorities being aware of their presence.

The blunder lead to an apparent cover up which was revealed in the minutes of an ACRO Criminal Records Office meeting obtained by the Guardian.

US/UK Dirty Hands Behind Weekend Protest in Tehran?

If Macaire was involved in inciting anti-government protests in Tehran, likely in cahoots with the Trump regime, he could be declared persona non grata and expelled from the country.

US dirty hands were all over protests in Iran last November — responsible for violence, vandalism and chaos for days until put down.

Tactics included shootings, Molotov cocktail bombings, arson, and other vandalism against state facilities, barricades of burning tires and/or rubbish, blocking roads, and other hostile actions.

What happened was straight from the CIA/MI6/Mossad playbook. Saturday’s student protest in Tehran had similar fingerprints all over it.

What’s behind the West’s hatred of Iran?

Stuart Littlewood argues that if Britain and the US had played fair and allowed the Iranians to determine their own future instead of using economic terrorism to bring the country to its knees, Iran might have been “the only democracy in the Middle East” today.>>

Now the truth emerges: how the US fuelled the rise of Isis in Syria and Iraq

The war on terror, that campaign without end launched 14 years ago by George Bush, is tying itself up in ever more grotesque contortions. On Monday the trial in London of a Swedish man, Bherlin Gildo, accused of terrorism in Syria, collapsed after it became clear British intelligence had been arming the same rebel groups the defendant was charged with supporting.

The prosecution abandoned the case, apparently to avoid embarrassing the intelligence services. The defence argued that going ahead with the trial would have been an “affront to justice” when there was plenty of evidence the British state was itself providing “extensive support” to the armed Syrian opposition.

History is made as MPs FINALLY formally approve Brexit deal by 330 to 231 after three years of bitter wrangling and deadlock

The historic EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill cleared the Commons this afternoon - despite Labour opposition - as MPs gave the draft legislation its third reading by 330 votes to 231, a majority of 99.

It is the final major Commons hurdle which the so-called WAB had to navigate and it will now head to the House of Lords next week for further scrutiny before the UK leaves the EU on January 31.

Remainer peers are expected to table a wave of amendments but ministers are confident that the Lords will eventually bow to the will of the elected House.

NHS use of puberty blockers legal challenge begins

Papers have been lodged at the High Court by a mother and a nurse against the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust, which runs the UK's only gender-identity development service (Gids).

Lawyers will argue it is illegal to prescribe the drugs, as children cannot give informed consent to the treatment.

The Tavistock said it had a "cautious and considered" approach to treatment.

The nurse, Sue Evans, left the Gids more than a decade ago after becoming increasingly concerned teenagers who wanted to transition to a different gender were being given the puberty blockers without adequate assessments and psychological work.

Since then, she says, even younger children are being given the drugs, which block the hormones that lead to puberty-related changes including periods and facial hair.

The number of young people referred to the Gids rose from 678 in 2014-15 to 2,590 in the past year.

'Worst year for retail in 25 years' says trade body

Retail sales fell for the first time in 25 years last year, according to the leading UK retail industry body.

The British Retail Consortium (BRC) said total sales fell 0.1%, marking the first annual sales decline since 1995.

Sale in November and December were particularly weak, falling 0.9%, the BRC said.

A separate report from Barclaycard found a rise in consumer confidence had failed to boost festive spending.
