Hospitals' FIVE-YEAR backlog: NHS trusts demand cash and staff to tackle the worst figures for 20 years

It will take five years for some hospitals to catch up with the backlog of patient care caused by the pandemic, NHS trusts warned yesterday.

It is the worst backlog for 20 years, according to NHS Providers, which represents NHS hospitals and mental health, community and ambulance services in England.

The worst-hit trusts in England are three to five years away from returning to pre-Covid levels, the organisation added.

NatWest Bank scheduled payments bug may have cost you money

Today, the UK-based National Westminster (NatWest) Bank is emailing multiple customers, asking them to check their debit transactions over the last year.

The email alerts state that due to a system error, many more payments may have been debited from customer accounts than the originally agreed-upon frequency.

In emails sent by NatWest and seen by BleepingComputer, the system malfunction meant that the standing orders (similar to Bill Pay instruction) set up by banking customers over a period of 11 months did not correctly record the number of automated payments that were to be debited, or on what dates should the debits stop.

This means automated payments could have continued to be made from the customer accounts, even after a standing order had expired, costing customers money.

Moment protester launches himself two-footed from a ledge into a man's HEAD as pro-Palestine and pro-Israel demonstrators clash with each other and police in London

Violence erupted in London yesterday as pro-Palestine protesters clashed with police during a demonstration against the continued conflict in the Middle East.

Dozens more people, including as many as ten children, have been killed overnight as Israel and Hamas fired retaliatory missile strikes, with the UN's Security Council due to meet today to discuss the continuing crisis.

Activists waving flags, banners and placards, featuring messages including 'Hands Off Jerusalem', took to the streets of the English capital on Tuesday to call for an end to the growing unrest.

Massive British, NATO War Games Prepare Queen Elizabeth Carrier Strike Group To Confront Russia and China

This year’s iteration of Britain’s biannual Joint Warrior exercise in the Irish Sea is subsumed under another exercise, Strike Warrior 21, being used to prepare the HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier, the flagship of the Royal Navy, and its carrier strike group for deployment to the Mediterranean Sea, the Indian Ocean and the Asia-Pacific region.

Exercise Joint Warrior, held in the spring and autumn every year, is described by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization as the largest military exercise in Europe and is organized jointly by the British army, navy and air force. It occurs off the northern and western coasts of Scotland in the Irish Sea. It is one of 95 NATO exercises scheduled for 2021 (113 were scheduled for last year), with 220 other national and multinational exercises conducted in conjunction with them.

UK Announces Voter ID Law To Avoid U.S.-Style Election Fraud.

In an effort to prevent and deter voter fraud on the scale of the last U.S. presidential election, a photo ID will now be required to vote in UK general elections, a proposal to be included in the Queen’s Speech to Parliament on Tuesday.
“Britons will have to show photo ID to vote in future general elections, ministers are poised to confirm this week,” states the Guardian.

This action is meant “as a means of tackling fraud,” while critics – who often benefit from voter fraud – are bigotedly claiming it “could deter poorer and ethnic minority voters from taking part in democracy.”

While the voter ID requirement, effective for both UK-wide and English elections, is new in some parts of the UK, Northern Ireland already requires voter ID. The Guardian notes:

“The proposal is to be included in Tuesday’s Queen’s speech, which will set out the government’s post-pandemic priorities and the laws it intends to pass in the forthcoming parliamentary session…

Government, Doctors Warn Brits Against Hugging Even After Restrictions Lifted

From May 17th, Brits will be ‘permitted’ by the government to meet with a total of 6 people indoors.

However, despite people being legally allowed to congregate inside for the first time in nearly 6 months, rules on close contact and hugging have remained largely undefined.

Leaks from within government this morning indicate that Brits will be urged to restrict themselves to “cautious cuddling,” reflecting concerns “that the public could go too far.”

UK Rail Disruption Caused By Train Cracks Expected To Last for Weeks

Rail companies said over the weekend that they had to suspend some services after cracks were found in some Class 800 series Hitachi trains, which are used by Great Western Railway (GWR), Hull Trains, London North Eastern Railway (LNER), and TransPennine Express (TPE).

LNER said on Twitter on Monday that the issue is “likely to be going on for a number of weeks.”

“LNER is working with Hitachi and other rail industry partners to return as many trains back into service as safely and as quickly as possible,” said a spokesman. “As investigations are continuing and the schedule for repairs is being developed, further information on timings will be released in due course.”

In a Twitter post on Monday, GWR said that “a significant number of services will be cancelled” on Monday and Tuesday, and “disruption is expected to continue for the rest of the week.”

Therefore, it said, “passengers with tickets for long-distance services are advised not to travel.”

George Galloway: Here’s why there WON’T be a second referendum on Scottish independence anytime soon

I may not have secured a seat in Scotland’s parliament, but I did play my part in stopping the separatist Scottish Nationalist Party from gaining an outright majority again. Most Scots voted for pro-Union parties.
Despite the best efforts of the BBC, which has forgotten what the first B in its name stands for, the separatist Scottish Nationalist Party has failed for the second election in a row to win a majority in the Scottish Parliament.

The BBC, which over Brexit and the Union has proved it hates the Crown while living on the half-Crown, described this as a “triumph” but it’s far from that.

The now anathematised Alex Salmond left his successor Nicola Sturgeon a parliamentary majority but she has, twice, thrown it away. Along the way, he has been airbrushed out of her history and, but for the good sense of a jury, could’ve now been just a year into an eight-year stretch in prison (at the age of 66).

UK now pushing pregnant women to take covid vaccines despite miscarriage, infertility risks

Dr. Simone Gold, founder of America’s Frontline Doctors, explained in a tweet to Ponce that “[t]here is a known potential mid-pregnancy fertility risk of the experimental vaccine … The vaccine is NOT cleared of infertility risk.”

Gold acknowledged that “getting COVID-19 has been associated with a high risk of mid-pregnancy miscarriage because the placenta fails,” but advised that “the vaccine may do the exact same thing — but not for just the few weeks of being sick — but forever.”

“It’s lunacy to get this experimental vaccine if you’re a young female,” she said. “It’s that simple … I would flat out forbid any young female from getting this vaccine, and I think it’s very unethical for any physician to offer this to a young female.”

Alcohol Deaths In England And Wales Rise To 20-Year-High During Pandemic

According to new data released on Thursday by the Office of National Statistics (ONS), 7,423 people in England and Wales died of alcohol-specific causes in 2020.

The number was 19.6 percent higher than in 2019, during which 6,209 people were killed by alcohol. It was also the highest annual death toll for the past 20 years.

Prince Michael accused of using royal status to ‘sell access’ to Vladimir Putin

An undercover investigation has claimed Prince Michael of Kent was willing to use his royal status for personal profit, and to seek favours from Russian president Vladimir Putin.

The Queen’s cousin told undercover reporters posing as investors from South Korea in a virtual meeting that he could be hired for £10,000 a day to make “confidential” representations to Mr Putin’s regime.

The revelation was made by Channel 4 Dispatches in collaboration with The Sunday Times, who set up a fake South Korean gold company called House of Haedong and approached five members of the royal family with an offer of a role.

Prince Michael of Kent responded showing interest in working with the company, telling undercover reporters that he would give House of Haedong his royal endorsement in a recorded speech for a $200,000 (£143,000) fee and was happy to use his home in Kensington Palace as a backdrop.

Covid tests will add more than £1,000 to foreign holiday cost for a family-of-four

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) called on governments to tackle expensive test prices and make them more widely available to facilitate an efficient restart of foreign travel.

IATA found only France complied with the World Health Organization (WHO) recommendation for the state to bear the cost of testing for travellers.

Of the 15 markets where there is a cost for PCR testing to the individual, including the UK, average minimum price was £65 with a top price of £150 for a single check.

Before the pandemic, the average one-way airline ticket cost £144, including taxes and charges.

A £65 PCR test hikes to price by 45 per cent to £209 with another test on arrival takes the one-way cost to £275.

If two tests are needed in each direction, the average cost for a return trip could reach £550.

End The Campaign of Fear

We’ve all seen the panic-inducing posters and videos, such as: “Look them in the eyes and tell them you’re doing all you can to stop Covid-19.” They form part of a campaign on which the Government has spent hundreds of millions of our money, making it the UK’s No.1 advertiser in 2020.

Broadcasters justify a daily diet of terrifying sensationalised and misleading stories with reference to emergency Ofcom rules, introduced at the Government’s behest, which ban any story that might undermine compliance with the rules. Posters at every supermarket and railway station use imagery and language designed with one aim in mind: to ensure obedience through fear.

There has been a sustained drive to induce mass panic and phobia of disease. And it has succeeded. Millions of people in the UK are now incapable of thinking rationally about Covid-19. Polling indicates that the average person believes it is at least 100 times more deadly than it actually is.

Britain to Impose COVID Passports

Quibbling over diplomatic rights for the EU and sending the navy to defend Jersey in fishing row is knee-jerk Britain at its worst

Having finally backtracked and given diplomatic status to the EU ambassador, belligerent Britain picks another target in Jersey, sending the Royal Navy to scare angry French fishermen instead of attempting a grown-up resolution.

While French gunboats and British warships circle one another off the coast of Jersey as protesting fishermen bait the opposing side over disputed fishing rights, at least we can all rest easy over one niggling little problem that has been resolved amicably.

The European Union ambassador to the United Kingdom, João Vale de Almeida, has had his full diplomatic recognition restored after he had been unceremoniously downgraded post-Brexit on the basis that he does not represent a country. Now we can all breathe out.

Jersey officials hold talks with French fishermen over rights dispute

Jersey officials are meeting French fishermen, who have been protesting over their post-Brexit rights, in an attempt to resolve the dispute.

Two Royal Navy ships and two French vessels are patrolling near Jersey while about 60 French and Jersey boats are at the island's St Helier port.

French fishermen say their rights are unfairly restricted by licences issued by the island under a new system.

No 10 said the PM has been in contact with Jersey officials over the row.

HMS Severn, which has previously been used to shadow Russian navy warships off the English coast, can be seen from the port, sitting off about a mile from the French boats. HMS Tamar is nearby and both ships are maintaining a presence and not making any effort to intervene.

Your move, Macron: Boris Johnson sends two Royal Navy vessels armed with cannon and machine guns to stop French fishermen from blockading Jersey in dramatic escalation of conflict with Paris over post-Brexit fisheries

Boris Johnson last night sent two Royal Navy gunships to Jersey 'as a precaution' in a major escalation of the 'unacceptable' row with France over post-Brexit fishing rights.

Armed with cannon and machine guns, the vessels will patrol the Channel after Paris warned yesterday it could cut off electricity to the British Crown dependency which is largely supplied via an undersea cable.

It is understood the Prime Minister made the decision to deploy the patrol boats after intelligence suggested a fleet of 100 fishing boats was threatening to block all access to the port at Saint Helier this morning.

Why Are Councils Recruiting Covid Marshals On 2 Year Contracts?

Coronavirus restrictions are due to end on June 21st. UK prime Minister Boris Johnson is on the record as saying that there will be no return to lockdowns thereafter. So why are local authority’s recruiting covid-19 marshals on contracts that run to 2023?

Data released today reveals that nearly 40 million UK residents live in covid free areas. 25 million Brits have had two doses of a vaccine and University College London is claiming that the country reached herd immunity against covid some weeks ago.

Yet according to The Mail Online, councils are set to employ “armies” of covid marshals to begin patrolling UK town centres and parks from July.

Let me guess ... just as everything is about to return to normal PCR test cycles will be turned up to 50 and we'll be hit with a "highly transmissible Indian variant" called Covid-21...

Vaccine testing at Porton Down to be expanded under plans to ‘future-proof’ UK against Covid

The government is investing almost £30m in expanding laboratories that will assess the effectiveness of vaccines against emerging coronavirus variants.

Under plans to “future-proof” the UK against more infectious or immune-escaping forms of the virus, testing is to be increased at the Porton Down labs in Wiltshire, enabling scientists elsewhere to fast-track the development of new and existing vaccines.

May 05 08:46


Porton Down was set up in 1916. It was a centre designed to test chemical and biological weapons.

Nerve gases such as Sarin and CS gas were tested on volunteer servicemen.

Servicemen were offered around £2 and three days leave as an incentive to take part in tests.

Very few servicemen knew what they were volunteering for and some were even told it was research into the cure for the common cold.

In 1953 it is alleged that serviceman Ronald Maddison died after taking part in a Sarin gas experiment.

In 1962, one of Porton Down's own scientists, Geoffrey Bacon died of the plague.

Child Rape Gang Victim: UK Police Did Nothing as I Was Abused by ‘Hundreds’ of Pakistani Men

A grooming gang survivor has revealed that she was abused by hundreds of Pakistani heritage men for years, but despite reporting her abusers to the police, none have ever been arrested.

Sarah — a fake name given to protect her identity — said that she was systematically raped and abused as a child in the early 2000s after running away from care homes in Derby.

She was eventually awarded compensation by the local government after authorities acknowledged the abuse and the repeated failures of social services to protect her from being raped. But she says despite the recognition of the acts perpetrated against her as a child and the confirmation that social services had failed to protect her, the police have yet to act on the information she gave them.

UK health secretary and chief lockdown promoter begins push to legalize assisted suicide

British health secretary Matt Hancock, who has presided over the country’s harsh lockdown regime, has taken initial steps to legalize assisted suicide in the UK.

Hancock wrote to Office of National Statistics (ONS) head Sir Ian Diamond, asking for data “to inform the debate” about doctor-assisted suicide two weeks ago, The Telegraph reported. The secretary also met with MPs to discuss the issue, the outlet said.

Hancock reportedly told the All Party Parliamentary Group for Choice at the End of Life that he was interested in data about Britons who leave the country to kill themselves in foreign doctor-assisted suicide clinics. Hancock, who previously opposed legalization efforts, claimed to have switched his stance, saying that “views of this do change.”

The parliamentary group supporting assisted suicide, led by Cabinet minister Andrew Mitchell, is calling for a referendum on the matter as soon as 2024.

RAF’s ‘Dambusters’ squadron set to begin Iraq and Syria bombing mission

The Royal Air Force (RAF) is set to deploy its 617 squadron – known as the “Dambusters” – allegedly against Daesh targets in Iraq and Syria.

The Ministry of Defense says F35B stealth fighter jets will join so-called Operation Shader from the Carrier Strike Group centered on the HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier.

Eight RAF and 10 US Marine Corps F35Bs are based on HMS Queen Elizabeth, and these assets are joined by an additional six Royal Navy ships, a submarine, 14 naval helicopters and a company of Royal Marines.

Trying to justify the latest deployment, the Chief of the Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Sir Mike Wigston, claimed that he was in no doubt that “violent extremism and the toxic ideology underpinning it is still rooted” in the West Asia region.

[Video] Senior NHS Board Member Warns: Stop The Genocide Or Our Children Are Next

If you had a magic wand, what would you like to see happen at the moment to help resolve what’s going on?

Whistleblower: If I had a magic wand, it would just stop. It would stop now, before we hurt anybody else. That would be amazing. That would be the best day ever, because every day I wake up, I think about how I can find that golden nugget to try and wake up the people around me to the damage we are causing. We are causing — I mean, we heard the word ‘genocide’ from the lady on Wednesday. I don’t disagree with that statement. And it’s terrifying, and it saddens me, and the reason I’m staying where I am for now is to try and make a difference in whatever way I can, but — like she said, and I would absolutely agree with this — I want to see that judgment day. I will give evidence.

Overblown? Coronavirus no longer biggest cause of deaths in the UK, data suggest

Experts have claimed that the COVID-19 fatality rate in the U.K. could be close to zero percent. Based on data they analyzed, most Britons who died of the disease would have passed away from natural causes nevertheless. Their claim followed official figures bolstering the assertion that the Wuhan coronavirus has been kept at bay.

A batch of data released by the British government showed that COVID-19 is no longer the leading cause of death in England and Wales. Figures released by the U.K. Office for National Statistics (ONS) for March 2021 showed that ischemic heart diseases, alongside dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, equally took the top spot as the leading causes of death in England. ONS figures for Wales showed the same outcome – with heart diseases being slightly ahead of the neurological ailments, and COVID-19 trailing the two.

Boris Govt Looks to 30,000 Migrants from Countries Including Belarus, Russia to Work Farms

Boris Johnson’s government is scrapping the ‘Pick for Britain’ drive for British farm workers and increasing migrant recruitment to 30,000, with hundreds to come from the likes of Belarus and the Russian Federation.

The Tory government launched the ‘Pick for Britain’ campaign in 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic began in earnest, resulting in restrictions on international travel despite their own efforts to put off halting travel from coronavirus hotspots such as Italy, Iran, China, and even Wuhan itself until well after the disease had become endemic.

With hundreds of thousands out of work or furloughed on reduced pay across the country, the government made a great show of inviting people to come into the fields, with the Queen’s heir, Prince Charles, backing the scheme in a public message which recalled the wartime Land Army.

The end of free speech: Why is Britain handing huge new powers of censorship to tech giants to control what we write and say?

The UK is turning its broadcast regulator into the Hatefinder General, with a new law compelling social media companies to enforce an authoritarian crackdown on our behaviour that’s ‘unprecedented in any democracy’.

As the British nanny state widens its scope with the government’s new Online Safety Bill it is a sign that the German concept of wehrhafte Demokratie – or militant democracy – has arrived on our shores, dictating that some of our rights are sacrificed in the interests of order.

Once enshrined in law, the bill will ensure that true, online freedom of speech will follow the dial-up modem and those once omnipotent AOL subscription CDs into the dustbin of internet history. According to the authors of ‘You’re on Mute”, a briefing document from the Free Speech Union (FSU), the government’s plans “will restrict online free speech to a degree almost unprecedented in any democracy”.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No... it's a flying marine! Elite Navy unit tests out jet packs and gives us a glimpse of the future of warfare

  • Video shows Gravity Jet Suit being tested out by the Navy in the English Channel
  • Flying marines seen landing on a ship and dropping ladders to help other troops
  • The suits cost more than £300,000 and are only being trialled at this point

The future of warfare may look like your favourite superhero film after a Royal Marine put a jetpack through its paces by flying aboard a ship.

This astonishing video echoes the Iron Man movies with marines taking off from a rig fixed on to a small boat behind HMS Tamar and flying on to its deck.

The Gravity Jet Suit, from British aeronautics firm Gravity Industries, was being tested by the Navy in the English Channel for future boarding operations – with the video highlighting how the marines could easily jump from boat to boat by gliding through the air.

Arrests made at London protest against greater police powers

Thousands of people have taken to the streets in London to protest against new police, crime, sentencing and courts bill.

Protesters gathered in Trafalgar Square from midday Saturday. After that, they marched past Buckingham Palace then through Victoria, past the Department for Education and the Home Office, and finally across the river to Vauxhall Gardens.

The demonstrators demanded that the government reverse planned legislation, chanting "Kill the Bill."

Nine people were arrested and officers were "continuing to engage" with protesters who had gathered in a park in south London following the march.

Similar rallies were held in other cities across England and Wales, including Bristol, where there were clashes between protesters and police for several days in March.

Hypocrisy and Hatred on Display as ‘Inside the Tenters’ Smear London Anti-Lockdown Marchers

There was a huge turnout for Saturday’s peaceful march against lockdowns and vaccine passports in London, with people from all walks of life attending, but media coverage was either non-existent, dismissive or hostile, proving it was clearly a protest the power elites disapproved of.

On Saturday, along with tens of thousands of other people I attended the ‘Unite for Freedom’ march in London. It was the first time I had been amongst a large crowd since Cheltenham Gold Cup Day 2020, just before the first lockdown, and it felt absolutely great. It was wonderful to be in a mass of humanity again and to meet and talk to some very nice people. Man is a social animal: only misanthropes and billionaire computer software tycoons love lockdowns. ‘Only connect’, as E.M. Forster would have said: Live in fragments no longer.

A police statement said nine people had been arrested and officers were 'continuing to engage' with protesters, who had gathered in a park in south London after the march.

Similar protests took place in other cities across England and Wales, including Bristol, which saw several days of clashes between protesters and police in March.

'I feel absolutely horrendous!' Coronation Street star Will Mellor, 45, reveals he has been left 'aching' and is bedridden after having first dose of AstraZeneca vaccine

Coronation Street star Will Mellor revealed he feels 'absolutely horrendous' on Sunday after having the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.

The actor, 45, took to Instagram to discuss how he had been feeling after being inoculated with the Oxford AstraZeneca version of the vaccine, claiming he was 'aching' and felt like an '80-year-old man'.

Talking from his bed and looking visibly unwell, Will told his followers: 'I had the Covid jab yesterday and I feel absolutely horrendous.

'I can barely lift my head off the pillow and my arms are like lead. I have aching bones, all my back is aching, it's like I've literally got the full blown flu.

NHS advice to 'turn off services' during the coronavirus pandemic 'led to a bigger lung cancer toll', says top respiratory consultant

Vast numbers of lung cancer patients are facing an early grave because the NHS ‘turned off’ services for them during the pandemic.

Respiratory consultant David Baldwin, who leads a national expert group on the disease, said patients were victims of a ‘natural experiment’ in which access to services was radically cut because of Covid.

Speaking to the annual conference of the British Thoracic Oncology Group, he said: ‘The method was to turn off patient activity by telling them to stay at home if they had a cough and not come anywhere near GPs, which had the effect of severely limiting access to advice and care.

‘The result was fewer patients presenting – many of them dying, probably, even without a diagnosis – hence the drop in [lung cancer] incidence.’

Countries Spending the Most on War

According to a new report, total global military expenditure rose to $1.8 trillion in 2018, a 2.6% increase from the previous year.

Military spending in China rose for the 24th year in a row. While overall military spending in the U.S. is down compared to a decade prior, due largely to the conclusion and de-escalation of two of the most expensive wars in its history, but military spending in the United States increased for the first time in seven years. These two countries account for such a substantial share of total global arms expenditure that their two increases in military spending alone largely explain the global increase.

The United States and China are by no means the only world powers that spend billions each year on the military. The top 14 military spenders, after the United States, can be found on five continents, and each has its own vast web of military and political alliances. Some are allies; others bitter enemies.

Normalising the abnormal: From ‘We’re not planning Covid passports’ to ‘They may be needed long term’ in 3 easy months

It’s now being suggested that Covid vaccine passports may be needed for the long term in the UK, just three months after the vaccines minister explicitly denied there were any plans to introduce vaccine passports.

There is nothing more permanent than a temporary government programme, the old saying goes, but in light of the past 13 months, we should actually update that to “there is nothing more permanent than a temporary government programme which the government denies it is planning to introduce in the first place.”

Teenager, 19, froze to death at Surrey beauty spot after his father threw him out of the house because he had been smoking cannabis

  • Lyndon Turner was kicked out of family home a day before his body was found
  • His father had been furious after his involvement in a cannabis-fuelled car crash
  • 19-year-old apprentice window fitter's body was found in Chobham Common
  • Woking Coroner's Court confirmed the teenager died of significant hypothermia

The frozen body of a teenager was found in the car park of a commuter belt beauty spot just a day after he was thrown out of the family home over a bust-up over his cannabis use, an inquest has heard.

The body of Lyndon Turner, 19, was found in the leafy village of Chobham in Surrey on the afternoon of December 2, 2020.

The apprentice window fitter had taken a rest in Chobham Common, a popular Surrey nature reserve, after walking six miles from his sales executive father's Ascot home following a furious row over drugs.

UK: Christian Pastor Arrested For Saying Marriage is Between a Man and a Woman

A Christian pastor in the UK was arrested by police after a member of the public reported him for the “homophobic” comment of saying that marriage was between a man and a woman.

Yes, really.

The incident occurred outside Uxbridge Station in west London. A video clip shows the elderly pastor being confronted by police and forcefully handcuffed before being led away.

“I wasn’t making any homophobic comments, I was just defining marriage as a relationship between a man and a woman. I was only saying what the Bible says – I wasn’t wanting to hurt anyone or cause offence,” said John Sherwood, who has been a pastor for 35 years.

Queen Has Been a 'Wonderful Supporter', Sex Toys Brand Says While Receiving Award From Her Majesty

Lovehoney is a UK company specialising in selling sex toys, gifts and lingerie; the company philosophy is that sexual happiness is crucial in everyone's life. Britain’s 95-year-old monarch seems to agree with them.

The Queen has awarded Britain’s leading sex toy company Lovehoney with a top prize due to its tremendous achievements in international trade in the last six years, according to an announcement.

According to Lovehoney's chief commercial officer, Debbie Bond, the Queen has been “a wonderful supporter” of the brand in the last years, as it has grown into being “the world’s leading sexual wellness brand”.

Fury as primary school head bans teachers from using 'sexist' language like 'good morning, boys and girls' as critics accuse her of creating 'generation of wallflowers' who are being 'brainwashed into woke political correctness'

A headteacher at the helm of a controversial school has sparked outrage today after revealing she has banned teachers from using phrases including, 'boys and girls.'

Sarah Hewitt-Clarkson from Anderton Park primary in Moseley, Birmingham, has stopped teachers from using terms including, 'let's go, guys', 'man up', 'grow a pair' and 'boys and girls'.

Students as young as three are taught to hold up posters flagging 'sexist' terms and the two pupils who find the best examples are rewarded with certificates at the end of the week.

UK: Christian Pastor Arrested For Saying Marriage is Between a Man and a Woman

A Christian pastor in the UK was arrested by police after a member of the public reported him for the “homophobic” comment of saying that marriage was between a man and a woman.

Yes, really.

The incident occurred outside Uxbridge Station in west London. A video clip shows the elderly pastor being confronted by police and forcefully handcuffed before being led away.

“I wasn’t making any homophobic comments, I was just defining marriage as a relationship between a man and a woman. I was only saying what the Bible says – I wasn’t wanting to hurt anyone or cause offence,” said John Sherwood, who has been a pastor for 35 years.

“I was doing what my job description says, which is to preach the gospel in open air as well as in a church building,” he added.

UK weather: April set to be frostiest in UK for 60 years

This month is provisionally the frostiest April in the UK for at least 60 years, the Met Office has said.

April 2021 has already seen an average of 13 days of air frosts across the UK, beating the previous record of 11 days reported in April 1970.

Northern Ireland had eight days of air frosts, while Scotland recorded 16.

If Isaac Newton Can Be Cancelled, No One Is Safe

It is important to understand that the planned ‘inclusive curriculum development’ has nothing to do with academic education, and has even less to do with engineering or science. Its sole aim is to distance engineering students from their nation’s past and to make them feel that there is something morally wrong with the intellectual and scientific legacy of their discipline. Its objective is to socialize students to despise their background and induce a sense of guilt. -- In effect, the plan to decolonize the engineering curriculum aims to undermine the reputation of one of the most important founders of modern science. The English mathematician, physicist, astronomer and author, Isaac Newton, is not just another scientist. He was and remains widely recognized as one of the greatest mathematicians and scientists of all time. Arguably, he was the most important figure in the scientific revolution.

Cancelling Isaac Newton as part of a ‘decolonisation’ drive is part of a woke-driven purge in education that must be resisted

A British university erasing the achievements of one of the world’s greatest scientists because he may have profited from ‘colonial-era activity’ is madness, and cancels the human spirit behind scientific discovery.

The leaked copy of the “draft inclusive curriculum development” document setting out plans to “decolonise” the engineering curriculum at Sheffield University, which warns that Sir Isaac Newton may have benefited from “colonial-era activity”, would be hilarious if its consequences were not so serious.

UK govt tenders suggest London could secretly be preparing for lockdowns to last until at least 2022

UK citizens are prepared for a “great British summer” due to the progress of the UK’s vaccination program. However, quietly-published government contracts reveal the promised roadmap out of lockdown could in fact be a red herring.

On April 26, the UK government published a tender in search of 60 new “covid marshals” in the district of Hertfordshire. The contract, offered to “public security, law and order [and] compulsory social security services” providers, is set to run July 2021-January 2022, and cost £3 million.

UK Hiring COVID Marshals to Patrol Streets Until 2023 Despite Lockdown Restrictions Supposedly Ending in June

Government councils in the UK are hiring COVID Marshals to patrol streets from July until the end of 2023, despite the fact that all lockdown restrictions are supposed to end in June.

“A new army of Covid Marshals is being recruited for roles that could last until 2023 despite Government plans to lift all remaining restrictions on June 21,” reports the Telegraph.

“Councils around the country are advertising jobs that do not begin until July – several days after the supposed freedom day.”

One example is Hertfordshire County Council, which is “offering a contract of up to £3 million to firms that can supply 60 marshals from July 1 until January 31 next year.”

“The contract comes with a possible one-year extension, meaning marshals would still be patrolling until 2023,” states the report.

Exclusive: Secret cables reveal Britain interfered with elections in Chile

Almost 50 years after the September 1973 coup that overthrew the democratically-elected president of Chile, Salvador Allende, declassified Foreign Office documents reveal Britain’s role in destabilising the country.

Under the Labour government of Harold Wilson (1964-1970), a secret Foreign Office unit initiated a propaganda offensive in Chile aiming to prevent Allende, Chile’s leading socialist figure, winning power in two presidential elections, in 1964 and 1970.

The unit – the Information Research Department (IRD) – gathered information designed to damage Allende and lend legitimacy to his political opponents, and distributed material to influential figures within Chilean society.

The IRD also shared intelligence about left-wing activity in the country with the US government. British officials in Santiago assisted a CIA-funded media organisation which was part of extensive US covert action to overthrow Allende, culminating in the 1973 coup.

MI6 head reveals that Russophrenia-stricken UK defense chiefs think Russia is both a ‘declining power’ AND their number one rival

The head of Britain’s MI6 foreign intelligence service has said that Russia is getting weaker and weaker as a country, while simultaneously warning that it poses a significant military threat to the UK’s allies in Eastern Europe.

Richard Moore, the chief of London’s top spy agency, world famous as the fictional home of James Bond, told an interview with the Sunday Times that “Russia is an objectively declining power economically and demographically.”

According to him, the world’s largest country is “an extremely challenged place,” arguing that recent protests in support of jailed opposition figure Alexey Navalny “show that there is a deal of disaffection with [Russian President Vladimir] Putin.” Rallies held last week drew smaller crowds than organizers had anticipated, and were largely peaceful.

‘Britain’s deployment is not to be provocative,’ says defence sec as UK sends aircraft carrier and other warships towards China

London has defended the UK’s decision to send a strike group, including its new £3 billion aircraft carrier, to the East Asia to visit allies and take part in exercises, claiming it is not being “provocative” towards China.

Speaking on Monday, Defence Secretary Ben Wallace told Sky News the deployment of HMS Queen Elizabeth, on its first operational deployment, would be positive for diplomacy and would not provoke conflict.

“When our carrier strike group sets sail next month, it will be flying the flag for Global Britain, projecting our influence, signalling our power, engaging with our friends and reaffirming our commitment to addressing the security challenges of today and tomorrow,” he stated.

Multiple leading scientists call for an end to ALL Covid restrictions as they hit out at 'confused and contradictory directions' and note vaccines cut deaths by 98%

  • Experts say Covid-19 is being turned into a 'mild disease' in Britain, like the flu
  • In an open letter they accuse Ministers and advisers of exaggerating the threat
  • The scientists called on the Government to remove all Covid restrictions in June

Leading scientists are calling on the Government to remove all coronavirus restrictions and allow people to 'take back control of their own lives' when the 'roadmap' to freedom ends in June.

With real-world data showing vaccines reduce the risk of death by 98 per cent and hospitalisations by more than 80 per cent, the experts say Covid-19 is being turned into a 'mild' disease in Britain, akin to the flu.

In an open letter to The Mail on Sunday, they criticise 'confused and contradictory' messages from Ministers and scientific advisers about the virus, which they say are exaggerating the real threat.

April 'was the coolest since 1989'

Last month was the coldest April since 1989, figures from the Met Office showed.

Even before the end of the month, this April had become the wettest since records began in 1910. Now figures for the whole month from the Met Office show it was also unusually cold.

Average temperatures for April were lower than March for most of the UK, and it was the coldest April in 23 years, with average temperatures around 5C cooler than for the same time last year.

The British Cabal Behind a Gulf Dictatorship

The repressive ruler of a close U.K. ally in the Gulf secretly received decades of advice on security, foreign and economic policy from a group of privy councillors who were drawn almost exclusively from the British establishment, it has emerged.

Oman’s dictator, Sultan Qaboos, who ruled the country for 50 years from 1970 to 2020, was advised by a secret privy council right up until his death last year.

The scheme appears to have been inspired by Britain’s privy council, the oldest functioning legislative assembly in the U.K., whose members advise the queen and have access to classified intelligence material.

Unlike the queen who is a ceremonial monarch, Sultan Qaboos wielded absolute power, banning political parties and independent media.

He spent billions of pounds on British weaponry and surveillance equipment to fortify his regime, which is located on a key oil supply route between Iran and Saudi Arabia.

London protest: Thousands march in fury over lockdown and vaccine passports

In videos and photos posted to social media, tens of thousands of protestors were pictured gathering and marching without face masks on, it has been claimed. The protestors, holding banners and chanting "freedom", are marching through central London. Those in attendance are protesting against coronavirus lockdowns and vaccine passports.

Earlier in the week there were protests against a European soccer league, and they had huge coverage on the corporate TV news. This protest didn't get a mention on the BBC or ITV.

Take a look at the crowds who attended... strikes me that the estimate of tens of thousands is very conservative.

Another point to note is there were no masks and few protesters would have been vaccinated. If there is no upsurge in Covid hospital admissions in the next 14 days then it will be clear that the notion of a deadly virus is a myth.

Super wealthy Indians hired six private jets to fly them to London to beat 'red list' deadline - with one making it to the UK just 40 minutes before the 4am cut off

  • Private jets flew in from Ahmedabad, Dehli and Mumbai to Luton Airport
  • At least six private jets flew into the UK in the hours before the red list deadline
  • From 4am arrivals from India would have to go to a £1,750 quarantine hotel

At least six private jets flew from India to London with super wealthy families paying more than £100,000 to beat today's 4am Covid-19 red list deadline.

A fleet of jets flew from Ahmedabad, Dehli and Mumbai into London Luton airport - with one aircraft touching down just 40 minutes before the deadline was imposed.

India was added to the UK's travel red list at 4am on Friday, meaning arrivals from the country must now enter quarantine in a Government-approved hotel for 10 days.

A British Airways and a Virgin Atlantic jet touched down in Heathrow around 7am - just three hours after the deadline.

Gerald Ratner still reeling 30 years on from gaffe that sank his jewellery empire in a matter of seconds

It was one of the most infamous speeches in corporate history.

On April 23, 1991, Gerald Ratner stood up in front of 6,000 of the great and good and sank his jewellery empire in a matter of seconds.

'We do cut-glass sherry decanters complete with six glasses on a silver-plated tray that your butler can serve you drinks on, all for £4.95,' he told the Institute of Directors event.

'People say: 'How can you sell this for such a low price?' I say: 'Because it's total crap.'

He added: 'We sold a pair of earrings for under £1, which is cheaper than a shrimp sandwich from Marks and Spencer, but probably wouldn't last as long.' It became known as 'doing a Ratner' and still serves as a warning for top chief executives to this day.

Ratner inherited the business from his father and built it into multi-billion-pound empire, with 2,500 stores. But after the speech the share price tanked. The group was forced into a financial restructuring and Ratner resigned in 1992.

Public sector borrowing was more than £300BILLION in 2020/21 - a level not seen since the end of the Second World War - and the national debt continues to climb above £2.1TRILLION as full damage of Covid crisis to the economy is laid bare

Data published by the Office for National Statistics this morning showed that net borrowing during the last financial year is estimated to have been £303.1billion.

That is some £246.1billion more than was borrowed in the previous financial year.

It is the highest number recorded for any financial year since records began back in 1947.

Meanwhile, the data also showed public sector net debt continues to climb above £2.1trillion.

The latest number published by the ONS put debt at £2.141trillion at the end of March this year.

Swiss drugmaker Roche searching for new site to trial Covid-19 pill as virus prevalence in UK falls

The pharmaceutical giant Roche has said the low levels of Covid-19 prevalence in the UK have made it hard to find enough participants to finish their trial of an ingestible treatment for the disease.

Speaking on Wednesday, Bill Anderson, the head of Roche’s pharmaceutical division, told Reuters that it was taking longer than expected to finish their trial. The company’s chairman Christoph Franz had previously indicated results might be available before the end of March.

“There’s just simply not enough patients to enrol… with the speed we were hoping for,” Anderson stated, noting that the UK’s strict lockdown and fast vaccination program had seen infection rates plummet in the country in recent months.

There’s a new influencer in town: Followed by thousands, in service to Her Majesty the Queen… welcome to Instagram, MI5

British spy agency MI5 is now on Instagram, promising to show off the ‘secret of successful spying’ and demonstrate how to ‘consider all angles.’ It has already beaten its sister service, GCHQ, in number of followers.

In just five hours since making its first post, the official MI5 account already has 30,000 people following it. One could see this as a testament to the limelight that the counterintelligence agency gets from the similarly named foreign intelligence organization which employs fictitious super-agent James Bond. MI6 is sadly absent on the network, but GCHQ, Britain’s signal intelligence agency, joined Instagram in October 2018, and has only 24.3k followers so far.

British spooks will have to work hard, however, to compete with their cousins across the pond. Since the CIA joined the network in 2019, it has drawn a cozy audience of 350,000 followers.

Boris Johnson hunts for leaker with ‘internal inquiry’ after ‘lobbying’ texts with billionaire James Dyson exposed

Downing Street is investigating the leak of text messages between Boris Johnson and billionaire vacuum cleaner tycoon James Dyson following outcry over the PM’s phone ‘lobbying’.

With Johnson embroiled in a scandal after promising Dyson that his staff wouldn’t pay extra taxes if they returned to the UK to help make ventilators amid the coronavirus pandemic, his spokesman told reporters on Thursday that an investigation has been launched into the leak.

“I can confirm that, yes, we have instructed the Cabinet Office to look into this,” he said, adding that it would be an “internal inquiry.”

The investigation will “get into the source of leaks of private communication” between the PM and Dyson and “is limited to that.”

Cocaine boss was shot on his doorstep over debt to mystery underworld crime queen dubbed 'The Banker' after police seized £20m of his drugs in biggest-ever UK land seizure, court hears

  • Liverpool brothers John and Alan Tobin sold drugs to gangs across the UK
  • Their business was dealt blow when police seized van containing cocaine on M6
  • Debts to underworld crime queen 'The Banker' led to John Tobin being shot

A cocaine boss was shot on his doorstep over debt to an underworld crime queen dubbed 'The Banker' after police seized £20million of his drugs in the UK's biggest-ever land seizure, a court has heard.

Liverpool brothers John and Alan Tobin sold vast amounts of cocaine, heroin, cannabis and ketamine to notorious gangs across the country backed by their 'enforcer', ex-cage fighter Robbie 'The Bear' Broughton.

But their 'highly profitable' business was dealt a fatal blow when police seized a van, containing 186kg of 90 per cent pure cocaine, on the M6 in August 2018.

Is The UK's "War On Pubs" About Silencing Dissent?

A university teacher has published a fascinating article in which he argues that the shut down of pubs in the United Kingdom is about silencing dissent.

The article by Sean Walsh, which was carried by LockdownSkeptics, questions why pubs are still semi-closed while other “non-essential retail” stores are allowed to fully open despite the fact that the entire hospitality industry was responsible for just 3 per cent of total COVID infections last year.

“It’s tempting to conclude that the SAGE types are not worried that pubs are possible vectors of transmission, but that they are concerned that hospitality venues are potential theatres of dissent,” writes Walsh.

He also notes that health bureaucrats seem to be intent on the British public remaining joyless as part of some demented puritanical drive to oversee the “crude sanitisation of our understanding of the human soul.”

UK pressing ahead with bill to protect soldiers from war crimes charges

The United Kingdom government is pressing ahead with proposed legislation that seeks to shield its soldiers from prosecution for any war crimes committed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In the face of widespread condemnation from human rights groups and retired officers, and amid stiff opposition in Parliament's upper chamber, the House of Lords, Prime Minister Boris Johnson's government agreed to shelve plans to protect servicemen and women from prosecution for torture, genocide or crimes against humanity.

However, it wants to continue to protect them from being charged with a range of war crimes including wilful killing, cruel and inhuman treatment, hostage taking and rendition.

Boris Johnson’s new spy-law proposals reveal an unsustainable Western double standard in how dissent is treated at home and abroad

The PM's proposals for a US-style Foreign Agents Registration Act and strengthening of powers under the Official Secrets Act claim to be about protecting against ‘foreign interference’, but really only stifle freedoms in Britain.

Boris Johnson is set to announce a raft of legislative proposals aimed at curtailing activities of foreign agents in Britain at the forthcoming Queen’s Speech on May 11.

Within the draft bill is a requirement for any individual working on behalf of a foreign government to register with British authorities or face criminal prosecution. This appears to be modelled after the foreign agent registry the United States brought in using the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). The proposals also include an expansion of the Official Secrets Act to allow foreign cyberattackers targeting the UK to be prosecuted and a significant widening of what type of intelligence theft is punishable under law.

UK hosts head of Ukrainian armed forces as tensions mount on Russia-Ukraine border

As tensions continue to mount on the Russian-Ukrainian border, the UK has undertaken yet another escalatory step by hosting the head of the Ukrainian armed forces.

The commander in chief of the Ukrainian armed forces, General Ruslan Khomchak, arrived in the UK today (April 20) where he was met by Chief of the Defense Staff General Sir Nick Carter.

The Ministry of Defense tweeted that the UK remains “firmly committed” to Ukrainian "independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity"

Today Chief of the Defence Staff General Sir Nick Carter welcomed his Ukrainian counterpart to @DefenceHQ for the first time for discussions on our ongoing defence cooperation.

The cost to YOU of Boris's green dream: To meet 80pc reduction on carbon emissions by 2035 we'll have to spend £10,000 upgrading our homes, drink three TEASPOONS of milk a day, eat meat just twice a week and barely fly once a year

Boris Johnson's plans to slash the UK's greenhouse emissions by nearly four-fifths in a decade sparked criticism today, as the PM was accused of 'shameless virtue signalling' and pursuing unreachable targets that would put the UK's economic recovery at risk.

The Prime Minister has described the target to reduce emissions by 78% on 1990 levels by 2035, which will be set in law under the Government's sixth carbon budget, as the most ambitious in the world.

It has been announced on the eve of a major US summit on Thursday where President Joe Biden is expected to set out a new US target for reducing emissions.

Brits Push Russia War

The United States backed off sending two warships to the Black Sea last week after Russia warned of a naval showdown. Days later, however, Britain is reportedly stepping in with plans to send warships.

Talk about “Mad Dogs and Englishmen”, the proposed British military intervention is a reckless provocation in a situation that is already spiralling out of control.

Violence is exploding in Ukraine’s seven-year civil war between the NATO-backed Kiev regime and ethnic Russians in the eastern Donbas region; Russia has mobilized its army for defence drills, and the US and European Union are expelling Russian diplomats, and vice versa.

Then the British announce they are sending warships to the Black Sea in the coming weeks to “defend” Ukraine against alleged Russian aggression, according to media reports.

Moment woman, 69, screams 'you're breaking my arm' as police arrest her for posting anti-lockdown stickers around a town centre

Footage shows pensioner Janie Bailey refusing to give her personal details to an officer after she allegedly caused criminal damage by posting 'anti-coronavirus literature' in Wythenshaw, Greater Manchester.

A second video posted to YouTube shows the retired receptionist screaming as police appear to pin her by her arms to a bench in the town.

She is heard repeatedly shrieking: 'You're breaking my arm, you're breaking my arm' as shocked passersby stop to film the arrest and shout at the officers.
