Russian Foreign Ministry Blasts 'Nonsense' UK Claims That Moscow Sought Puppet Gov in Ukraine

Moments earlier, the UK accused Russia of intending to install a puppet government in Ukraine, going so far as naming five Ukrainian politicians with purported ties to the effort.

The Russian Foreign Ministry has slammed unsubstantiated claims aired by the UK on Saturday that suggested Moscow was intending to "install pro-Russian leadership" in Ukraine amid the latest surge in tensions.

A statement by the ministry labelled the UK accusations as another effort by Western nations to escalate tensions in the region, underscoring that the so-called "exposed" findings were "nonsense".

JUST IN: Latest UK Data Shows Covid Infection RATE Among the Triple Jabbed (Boosted) Is HIGHER And RISING FASTER Than The Unvaccinated Across ALMOST EVERY Age Group

The latest official health data from the British government revealed that triple vaccinated individuals once again accounted for the majority of all Covid-19 hospitalizations between December 20th and January 16th, with the double vaccinated – formerly known as the fully vaxxed – not far behind.

Unsurprisingly, even with the highly-infectious and common-cold-like Omicron variant being the dominant strain, the unvaccinated have maintained a steady rate of infection.

Memory Holed: Woke BBC Quietly Censoring Classic Comedy Programmes

Britain’s publicly funded broadcaster, the BBC, has been quietly censoring radio rebroadcasts of classic comedy shows, memory-holing jokes deemed too politically incorrect for modern audiences.

A number of skits from classic comedy shows have been memory-holed entirely by the BBC, with the UK’s national broadcaster quietly editing re-broadcasts of old programming to remove supposedly offensive elements of the shows.

The broadcaster has previously come under fire for censoring classic televisions shows, being called “cowardly and gutless” as a result.

According to a report by The Times, however, the state-broadcaster has also been stripping out segments deemed racist, misogynistic, or otherwise unacceptable in the modern age from re-aired versions of old radio versions of shows.

PETER HITCHENS: Who is Labour's hero? A nurse who stopped a man seeing his dying wife

Who wants to pull Al Johnson down, and why? I’m no friend of the Prime Minister and would gladly have seen him fall in March 2020 when he launched his Maoist plan to close the country, trash our liberty and wreck the economy.

But at that time, and for months afterwards, I had almost no allies at all. Gosh, if someone had called me in May 2020 and said ‘Downing Street is holding boozy parties while Johnson is ordering the nation into strict isolation’, I’d have welcomed the leak and used it to try to destroy a policy I always saw as wrong and out of proportion.

But nobody did call me, even though lots of people must have known then.

It is only now, when Johnson has finally stood up to the panic-mongers and begun to liberate the country, that the leaks have come.

Liz Truss forging Britain-Poland-Ukraine axis aimed at Russia

Experts from the NGO Council on Geostrategy have already developed a geopolitical map of a possible new geopolitical association

Minister of Foreign Affairs of the United Kingdom Liz Truss reported on the development of relations with Ukraine and Poland in the context of countering the Russian threat. This was stated by Truss during a speech at the Lowy Institute…according to the press service of the British government.

“This week, the United Kingdom announced a new package of training, support and…weapons for Ukraine to boost their…capabilities. And we’re working with our partners on high impact measures targeting the Russian financial sector, and individuals. We’re also strengthening our bilateral partnership following high-level talks in London in December – and we’re fostering new trilateral ties with Poland and Ukraine,” Truss stated.

UK foreign office says Kremlin is planning to install a pro-Russian leader in Ukraine

The UK foreign office said in a Saturday statement it has information that the Russian government is planning to "install a pro-Russian leader in Kyiv as it considers whether to invade and occupy Ukraine."

"The former Ukrainian MP Yevhen Murayev is being considered as a potential candidate," the British Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office said. Murayev told CNN Saturday "there is nothing to comment on" regarding the allegations, as he is a Ukrainian national and still facing Russian sanctions.

The Death Document – Evidence the UK Government Authorised “Mass Murder” of the Elderly and Vulnerable by Midazolam Injection and Then Blamed COVID-19

In March 2020 the UK Government announced that the country “must stay at home” in order to “protect the NHS” and “save lives”. But little did the public know, the UK Government was in the process of implementing policies that would lead to the unnecessary killing of the UK’s elderly and most vulnerable, who you were told had died of Covid-19, and the “Death Document” proves it.

Between 2 March and 12 June 2020, 18,562 residents of care homes in England died with COVID-19, including 18,168 people aged 65 and over, representing almost 40% of all deaths involving COVID-19 in England during this period.

Of these deaths, 13,844 (76%) happened in care homes themselves; nearly all of the remainder occurred in a hospital. During the same period, 28,186 “excess deaths” were recorded in care homes in England, representing a 46% increase compared with the same period in previous years.

British Medical Journal Demands Immediate Release of All COVID-19 Vaccine, Treatment Data

The British Medical Journal (BMJ) has demanded the full and immediate release of all data related to COVID-19 vaccines and treatments, saying it is in the public’s interest to do so.

BMJ, a weekly peer-reviewed medical trade journal published by the trade union the British Medical Association, called for the release of the data in an editorial published on Wednesday.

“Today, despite the global rollout of COVID-19 vaccines and treatments, the anonymized participant-level data underlying the trials for these new products remain inaccessible to doctors, researchers, and the public—and are likely to remain that way for years to come,” BMJ said.

“This is morally indefensible for all trials, but especially for those involving major public health interventions.”

Russia's Zakharova Nudges UK's Truss Over Remark About 'Invading Forces' Faced by Ukraine

On Friday, British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss delivered a speech at independent think tank, the Lowy Institute in Australia, elaborating on how nations such as the United Kingdom and Australia should respond to threats to freedom, democracy and the rule of law.

A speech delivered by Liz Truss on Friday in Australia seems to have impressed her opposite numbers in Russia'a Foreign Ministry, particularly spokeswoman Maria Zakharova. However, the impression itself turned out to be questionable.

During her speech, Truss happened to mention that Ukraine, "a proud country with a long history", has weathered a lot of invasions - "from the Mongols to the Tatars". The British Foreign Secretary did not specify whether she referred to Tatar-Mongol Yoke that took place in the 13th century or any other kind of invasion by these peoples.

The U.K. Paid $724,000 For A Creepy Campaign To Convince People That Encryption is Bad. It Won’t Work.

By Joe Mullin

This week, the U.K. government launched an unprecedented and deceptive effort to kill off end-to-end encryption. They’ve hired a fancy ad agency to convince people that encrypted messages are dangerous to children.

The explicit goal of the “No Place to Hide” campaign, launched on Tuesday, is to prevent Facebook from expanding its use of end-to-end encryption. Currently, Facebook’s WhatsApp messaging system uses end-to-end encryption, but other communications systems, including Facebook Messenger, are scanned and checked against a US government database, run by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), which identifies child abuse images.

UK Might Dispatch Hundreds of Troops to NATO Countries Near Ukraine, Reports Say

London is considering the possibility of sending hundreds more troops to allied countries neighboring Ukraine as a "deterrent" to Russia, thereby beefing up the UK's contribution to NATO's operations in the region, The Times reported on Friday, citing defense sources.

The alliance members have reportedly held high-level talks about bolstering their military presence in the Baltic States and Poland right after UK Foreign Minister Liz Truss warned Russian President Vladimir Putin to "step back from Ukraine before he makes a massive strategic mistake", as quoted by The Times.

Currently, the United Kingdom leads a NATO battle group of 1,200 troops in Estonia, where it has tanks, armoured vehicles, air defence systems, and intelligence assets, according to the media. Poland hosts 140 UK troops as part of NATO's mission too.

According to the media, members of the Ranger Regiment, which is part of the newly created army's Special Operations Brigade, arrived in Ukraine on military flights that also delivered about 2,000 anti-tank missile launchers to the country this week.

Tony Blair and Boris Johnson: A simple morality tale about western values

Two weeks ago, American entrepreneur Elizabeth Holmes was found guilty of criminally defrauding investors out of $700m. She faces up to 20 years in jail.

In sharp contrast, Tony Blair has just been awarded one of the most coveted honours to which any British citizen can aspire - the Queen has made him a Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter.

Of course, it is right that Holmes should be punished. Her wrongdoing cost investors a great deal of money. But her actions did not lead to bloodshed.

'The modelling has manipulated fear... it is pretty despicable': Furious Tory MPs say No10's use of SAGE projections is a 'national scandal' as they accuse 'Professor Lockdown' of seeking publicity for 'hysterical forecasts'

Furious MPs today slammed No10 for its 'despicable' reliance on 'hysterical' Covid forecasts which have repeatedly driven the nation into living under economically-crippling curbs.

In a heated Westminster Hall discussion about coronavirus, Conservative Bob Seely called the use of modelling a 'national scandal'. He argued the projections, peddled by SAGE, created a 'climate of manipulated fear'.

Echoing Winston Churchill's famous wartime speech, Mr Seely said of the modelling: 'Never before has so much harm been done to so many by so few.'

Vladimir Putin 'is now plotting a full-scale invasion': British defence chiefs and White House warn Ukraine is facing a 'nightmare scenario' as Russian troops mass along border and armoured divisions head to Belarus

Vladimir Putin will opt for the 'nightmare scenario' of a full invasion of Ukraine as tensions rise towards tipping point, UK defence chiefs fear.

The region has been on a knife-edge since the end of last year when Moscow moved as many as 100,000 troops, as well as tanks and missiles, close to the border.

The White House warned yesterday the situation was 'extremely dangerous' and that Moscow could launch an attack 'at any point'.

'British are unstoppable!' Army and RAF dispatched to see off Russia threat – Putin braced

RAF planes carrying "self-defence" weapons were deployed to Ukraine on Monday night to help with the 100,000 Russian troops amassed at the border, the UK Defence Secretary said.

Britain supplied Ukraine with short-range anti-tank missiles as Ben Wallace warned fears of "loss of life on all sides" are on the rise. The decision to stand up for Kiev was described as "wise".

Mr Wallace confirmed a small team of British troops would also be sent to Ukraine to provide training.

The Kyiv Independent journalist Illia Ponomarenko tweeted: "The British are just unstoppable these days.

"Once again, the UK finds itself on the right side of history – because it is wise enough not to be lured into going the easiest way, which is always the fastest lane straight to hell."

UK Supplies Ukraine With Thousands of Light Anti-Tank Missiles

The United Kingdom has supplied Ukraine with several thousands of light anti-tank missiles, UK Minister for the Armed Forces James Heappey told the LBC radio broadcaster on Wednesday.

The minister noted that Ukrainians are a proud sovereign nation and they are ready to fight for every inch of their country.

London said on Tuesday that the UK military had airlifted a batch of light anti-tank weapons to Ukraine for self-defence.

Earlier this week, the US and British officials made statements about increasing arms deliveries to Ukraine, including shoulder-launched anti-aircraft missile systems. Russia criticised the move, saying it will make the situation even worse. The West has been speculating about Russia's alleged plans to invade Ukraine, a claim Moscow has strongly denied.

Six Russian Landing Ships Sail Past Britain Sparking Speculation They Are Bound For Ukraine

Six Russian landing ships have sailed past Britain sparking speculation they are bound for an impending ‘full-scale invasion’ of Ukraine – as Kiev warns President Putin has ‘nearly completed’ the build-up of troops along the border.

Russia’s Baltic Fleet vessels the Korolev, Minsk and Kaliningrad were today sailing south past the UK followed by Northern Fleet warships Olenegorsky Gornyak, Pyotr Morgunov, and Georgii Pobedonosets which passed the Great Belt Bridge in Denmark on Monday.

The ships, which can each carry up to 25 armoured personnel carriers, were deployed three days ago but it remains unclear if they are heading for Ukraine.

The region has been on a knife-edge since the end of last year when Moscow moved as many as 100,000 troops, as well as tanks and missiles, close to the border.

Kremlin 'Concerned' by 'Extremely Dangerous' Prospect of Delivery of Stingers to Ukraine

British defence chief Ben Wallace announced Monday that London is supplying Kiev with weapons for "self-defence" and small numbers of trainers to teach the Ukrainian army how to use them. US officials and lawmakers, meanwhile, have warned that they would back a Ukrainian "insurgency" with anti-armour and anti-air weapons if Russia invaded.
Russia is concerned by the "extremely dangerous" statements coming out of London and Washington regarding new weapons deliveries to Ukraine, and believes such steps will only serve to increase regional tensions, Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskov has said.

Britain Says It Is Supplying Anti-Tank Weapons to Ukraine

Britain said on Monday it had begun supplying Ukraine with anti-tank weapons to help it defend itself from a potential invasion, during a stand-off with Russia which has massed troops near the Ukrainian border.

Western countries say they fear Russia is preparing a pretext for a new assault on Ukraine, which it invaded in 2014.

Moscow denies any plans for an attack, but has said it could take unspecified military action unless the West agrees to a list of demands, including banning Ukraine from ever joining NATO. Talks last week ended with no breakthrough. Kyiv has asked Western countries for arms to help it protect itself.

"We have taken the decision to supply Ukraine with light anti-armour defensive weapon systems," British Defence Secretary Ben Wallace told parliament, saying the first systems were already delivered on Monday and a small number of British personnel would provide training for a short period of time.

FLASHBACK - The Balfour Declaration: Britain's fatal mistake in Palestine

More than a century after Lord Balfour made his declaration, there is little agreement about what former British Prime Minister David Lloyd George’s foreign secretary or subsequent governments intended to do with Palestine.

It should not be such a mystery. Britain wanted Palestine for its own empire, for simple geostrategic reasons born of World War I. Towards that end, the British government sought to exploit the Zionist movement - not to create a Jewish state, but to partner with Zionist settlers in managing Palestine over the predictable opposition of the Palestinian Arab majority.

If one were to compare Palestine to the French mandate in Lebanon, the Zionists were the Maronites of British Palestine: a compact minority community that would openly advocate for a British mandate at the Paris Peace Conference and cooperate with the British in governing the territory.

British aircraft avoid Germany on Ukraine weapon supply run

Two British C-17 transport aircraft carrying weapons to Ukraine went around German airspace.

Tens of thousands of Russian troops are positioned close to the Ukrainian border, according to the UK Defence Secretary, “Their deployment is not routine, and they are equipped with tanks, armoured fighting vehicles, rocket artillery, and short-range ballistic missiles”. This build-up has resulted in Ukraine requesting assistance from allies, with two British transport aircraft heading to Ukraine with anti-armour weaponry.

UK sends ‘defensive weapons’ to Ukraine, invites Russia for talks

The United Kingdom has begun sending light arms to Ukraine, Britain’s top military official said, though he claimed the weapons “pose no threat to Russia” after repeated allegations that Moscow is planning to invade its neighbor.

“We have taken the decision to supply Ukraine with light anti-armour defensive weapon systems,” Defence Secretary Ben Wallace told lawmakers on Monday, adding initial shipments had already arrived in the country hours prior.

Despite the growing enmity, Wallace said he invited his Russian counterpart, Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu, to meet in London sometime in the coming weeks to work through the issue, adding “the current gap is wide but not unbridgeable,” and that he remains “hopeful that diplomacy will prevail.”

In a clear signal to Vladimir Putin, two RAF transporters flew badly needed missile systems to Kiev's forces. Troops were aboard the planes and will remain in Ukraine to teach their counterparts how to combat Russian tanks.

Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said the deployment came 'in light of the increasingly threatening behaviour from Russia'.

Prince Andrew suspected of ‘intimate relationship’ with Ghislaine Maxwell

In an ITV documentary scheduled to air Tuesday, Paul Page, who protected the Duke of York from 1998 to 2004, alleges that Maxwell was so close to Prince Andrew that she was allowed to enter and exit Buckingham Palace at will.

While working in the Royalty and Specialist Protection Command unit, former officer Page stated that a colleague of his “remembered her coming in four times in one day,” as she regularly visited the prince when he was living at the palace.

Maxwell visited Buckingham Palace in 2001, according to Page, the same year that Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre alleges Prince Andrew had sex with her at the British socialite’s London townhouse.

Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries signals the BBC licence fee will be SCRAPPED after 2027 and clobbers the broadcaster with a £2bn funding cut by freezing levy for two years as part of Operation Red Meat campaign to distract from Partygate

Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries today signalled the BBC licence fee will be scrapped after 2027 as part of the Prime Minister's policy blitz dubbed Operation Red Meat that aims to deflect from the recent Partygate row.

Ms Dorries indicated that she wants to put in place a new funding model for the broadcaster when the current licence fee deal expires in five years' time.

The Cabinet minister has hit the Corporation with a two-year licence fee freeze and her allies have warned ‘the days of state-run television are over’, as tensions between the Government and the BBC continue to rise.

Ms Dorries tweeted this morning: 'This licence fee announcement will be the last. The days of the elderly being threatened with prison sentences and bailiffs knocking on doors, are over.

UK Authorities Concerned About Anti-Vaxxer Movement as it Tends To Extremism, Report Says

The coronavirus pandemic has spawned all sorts of conspiracy theories, which in turn have galvanised anti-vaccination movements around the world with protests staged against safety restrictions, obligatory vaccines and COVID-19 passports. Quite often these demonstrations turn violent.

British authorities are concerned about its home-grown anti-vaxxer movement as it has tended towards violent extremism, The Observer reported, citing a government source. According to the insider, Prime Minister Boris Johnson is receiving updates from police and counter-terrorism officials about individuals prepared to "undermine national health security".

"It’s a growing concern and it is being monitored at the highest level. No 10 is among those getting reports direct: the PM is seeing them in his inbox. The consensus is that we didn’t win [the disinformation war] as cleanly as we need to do next time," said the Whitehall source.

Triple & Double Vaccinated accounted for 4 in every 5 Covid-19 Deaths in England over the past month despite most vulnerable getting Booster in October

The latest figures published by the new UK Health Security Agency on Covid-19 cases, hospitalisations and deaths show that the vaccinated population still accounted for 4 in every 5 Covid-19 deaths over the past four weeks even though those who are deemed to be the most vulnerable to Covid-19 received their “booster” jab in September and October.

The ‘Covid-19 Vaccine Surveillance Report – Week 50’ was published by the UK Health Security Agency (formerly Public Health England) on Thursday, 16th December 2021, and it shows that the vast majority of Covid-19 cases between November 15th and December 12th were among the fully vaccinated population.

Prince Harry is taking legal action against the Government over its decision to remove his UK police security, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

Lawyers acting for Harry, who stepped down from Royal duties two years ago, have written a ‘pre-action protocol’ letter to the Home Office, indicating that they will seek a judicial review if the Sussexes are not provided with continued security while they are in Britain - which they make clear he is happy to pay for.

If the case proceeds, it will lead to a battle in the High Court between Ministers and Prince Harry.

British Government Used "Propagandistic" Fear Tactics To Scare Public Into Mass Compliance

The British government used “propagandistic” fear tactics to scare the public into mass compliance during the first COVID lockdown, according to a behavioral scientist who worked inside Downing Street.

Simon Ruda co-founded Number 10’s ‘Nudge Unit’, which was initially set up to encourage positive behavioral changes in the British public without the need for coercion or legislation, but was weaponized during the pandemic to create scaremongering.

“In my mind, the most egregious and far-reaching mistake made in responding to the pandemic has been the level of fear willingly conveyed on the public,” wrote Ruda.

“That fear seems to have subsequently driven policy decisions in a worrying feed-back loop,” he added, noting that such actions amounted to “state sanctioned propaganda.”

The behavioral scientist said that an obsession with daily case numbers came to dominate thinking, serving to spread even more fear.

COVID Week 19 vaccine surveillance report 4 2 PDF

Breaking: The UK government admits that vaccines have damaged the natural immune system of those who have been double-vaccinated. The UK government has admitted that once you have been double-vaccinated, you will never again be able to acquire full natural immunity to Covid variants - or possibly any other virus. So let's watch the "real" pandemic begin now! In its Week 42 "COVID-19 Vaccine Surveillance Report", the UK Department of Health admits on page 23 that "N antibody levels appear to be lower in people who become infected after two doses of vaccination". It goes on to say that this drop in antibodies is essentially permanent. What does this mean? We know that vaccines do not prevent infection or transmission of the virus (indeed, the report elsewhere shows that vaccinated adults are now much more likely to be infected than unvaccinated ones).

A fridge too far: Downing Street 'held wine-time Fridays EVERY week' throughout the pandemic: Now staff are accused of taking a suitcase to Tesco Metro to fill up with booze and having a drinks fridge delivered in December 2020

Downing Street held 'wine-time Fridays' every week throughout the pandemic which Boris Johnson attended, with staff even investing in a £142 drinks fridge to keep their beer, prosecco and wine cold, it has been claimed.

Government aides were encouraged by the prime minister, who regularly oversaw the gatherings, to 'let off steam' at the regular drinks which would often continue until the early hours, at a time when Britons were banned from socialising indoors, sources told The Mirror.

Staff took turns to stock up on drinks at the local Tesco Metro with a wheely suitcase to fill up the 34-bottle fridge which was delivered through the back door of Downing Street on December 11, 2020, extraordinary pictures have revealed.

GUY ADAMS: The photographs that raise tantalising questions over Labour peer Lord Mandelson's 10-year friendship with paedophile Epstein

During his five decades in public life, Lord Mandelson has delighted in the company of many rich men.

Indeed, it was after being bewitched by his wealthy colleague Geoffrey Robinson that he had to resign from the Cabinet — on the first of two occasions he was forced to leave government.

It was no surprise, either, that as a man who was castigated by Labour colleagues when he once said he was 'intensely relaxed about people getting filthy rich as long as they pay their taxes', he has happily mixed socially with financier Nat Rothschild, who arranged for him to spend a lavish weekend in the company of the Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska.

UK tells Yemeni asylum seeker he can return home safely despite war

A Yemeni man has been told by UK authorities he can return home to his country because officials “do not accept that there are problems in Yemen”, in a refusal of his asylum claim, filed in June 2021.

The UK's Guardian newpaper reported that the asylum seeker, a 36-year-old accountant who is married and has two children, has various physical and mental health problems, but the refusal letter said that there is “a substantial public health programme in Yemen”.

The United Nations and charities operating in the country have repeatedly stated the country's health system has "collapsed" under the weight of years of civil war and the Covid-19 pandemic.

Iraq war: Secret memo reveals Bush-Blair plans to topple Saddam Hussein

George W Bush told Tony Blair he did not know who would replace Saddam Hussein in Iraq when they toppled him and that he “did not much care”, according to an explosive top secret account of the meeting seen by Middle East Eye.

The former US president was blithe about the consequences of launching an invasion at a crucial meeting with the British prime minister at his Texas ranch in 2002, almost a year before the war was launched.

“He didn’t know who would take Saddam’s place if and when we toppled him. But he didn’t much care. He was working on the assumption that anyone would be an improvement,” the British memo, written by Blair's top foreign policy adviser at the time, reads.

Bush believed - but the memo says he would not say publicly - that a “moderate secular regime” in post-Saddam Iraq would have a favourable impact both on Saudi Arabia - a close US ally - and Iran.

Russia capable of neutralising NATO by launching Zircon missile on UK

Russia's state-of-the-art weapons forced the United States to seriously think about changing its nuclear doctrine. It is the Zircon hypersonic missile that gave Moscow an opportunity to mess up all the plans of the potential enemy, the analyst believes.

"Russia can neutralize NATO with the help of conventional weapons too. One salvo of conventional Zircon missiles from a submarine is capable of destroying all power plants in the UK. All of the UK will be de-energized within 15 minutes. That's all,” the political scientist said on ITON-TV YouTube channel.

According to Kedmi, Russia may not use nuclear weapons in the event of a threat. In order to neutralize NATO forces, Moscow can resort to its hypersonic weapons. Russia may strike a blow on the main ally of the United States — Great Britain. The expert believes that if Russia takes the UK out of the game in a retaliatory attack, all other members of the alliance will fall down like dominos.

Judge rules sexual assault lawsuit against Prince Andrew can move ahead

A federal judge in New York on Wednesday denied a motion to dismiss a lawsuit against Prince Andrew filed by Virginia Giuffre, a woman who alleges she was sexually trafficked to the royal when she was underage.

"Ms. Giuffre's complaint is neither 'unintelligible' nor 'vague' nor 'ambiguous,'" Judge Lewis Kaplan wrote in the ruling. "It alleges discrete incidents of sexual abuse in particular circumstances at three identifiable locations. It identifies to whom it attributes that sexual abuse."

Giuffre alleged in the lawsuit that the late financier Jeffrey Epstein trafficked her and forced her to have sex with his friends, including the Prince, and that Andrew was aware she was underage (17) in the US at the time. She alleges the Prince sexually abused her at Epstein's private island in the US Virgin Islands, at his mansion in Manhattan and at his former girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell's home in London.

BoJo Apologizes For Attending "Partygate" Garden Party But Refuses To Resign As Public Pressure Builds

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson hasn't exactly had an easy ride since taking over from his predecessor Theresa May in late 2019, just months before the COVID pandemic engulfed the world. And since the dawn of the pandemic, BoJo and his senior advisors have been repeatedly accused of hypocrisy. The issue at hand is that the British government famously imposed some of the most complicated restrictions on movement and businesses during the first year and a half of the pandemic.

As millions of Britons struggled to comply with onerous restrictions like the "rule of six", over in Downing Street, BoJo and his team sometimes acted like the rules didn't apply to them. First there was Dominic Cummings, BoJo's (deeply unpopular) senior advisor, who ended up quitting way back in November 2020 after he was caught breaking the lockdown rules that he helped to craft.

Palpable rage, tears, and a rancid tang of last days of empire: HENRY DEEDES watches MP tell how his mother-in-law died  alone during lockdown and concludes Boris cannot hide forever

For the past 18 months, this government has ridden out storm after storm. Yesterday, something felt very different. In the political cauldron hung a rancid tang, the whiff of dry rot, a sense of the last days of empire.

In this hotbed of confected anger, the atmosphere spat and bubbled like magma and genuinely seethed. Those invited to speak on the matter of the latest and most damaging Downing Street party scandal did not hold back.

Boris did not turn up to this very public roasting and his no-show only gave MPs even more cause to screech their outrage. At one point tears flowed.

BOOGA BOOGA! How Putin could black out Britain: Top military man warns Russian sabotage could wreck undersea cables that supply our internet and $10 trillion of financial deals a day

Thousands of feet under the ocean lies a global network of internet cables responsible for carrying 97 per cent of international communications.

In a digital age, these physical cables, sheathed in steel and plastic, are central to how we function. If they were to be disabled, it would not just prevent us accessing the web on our phones and laptops — it would disrupt everything from agriculture and healthcare to military logistics and financial transactions, instantly plunging the world into a new depression.

According to experts, this doomsday scenario ranks alongside nuclear war as an existential threat to our way of life.

Treat Covid like the FLU: Ex-chief of the UK's vaccine taskforce calls for 'new targeted strategy' to manage the virus and says population-based jabs should be scrapped after boosters as daily cases fall by almost TWENTY PER CENT on last week to 146,390

Coronavirus should be treated like the flu and Britain's mass jabs programme should be scrapped after the booster campaign is complete, the ex-chief of the UK's vaccine taskforce has said.

Dr Clive Dix, who was chairman of the government agency from December 2020 until April, called for a return to a 'new normality' and a volte-face on the approach throughout the pandemic.

He said the country needs to learn to manage the disease rather than focus on halting the spread of the virus amid hope the Omicron variant is even less severe than the flu.

'Mothers-In-Arms' Slam Blair's Knighthood For Afghanistan, Iraq Wars, While They 'Got to Bury Sons'

A petition to strip former British Prime Minister Tony Blair of his knighthood, posted on Change.org a week ago, has already gained more than a million signatures. Blair has been accused of causing “irreparable damage to both the constitution of the United Kingdom and to the very fabric of the nation’s society” due to his role in the Iraq War.

Five women brought together by grief met in Coventry Cathedral on Saturday to each light a candle for their sons, killed in Afghanistan, and voice their fury over the bestowing of knighthood on the man they blame for their loss – Tony Blair.

Carol Valentine, Hazel Hunt, Caroline Whitaker, Caroline Jane Munday-Baker and Helen Perry refuse to be reconciled with the fact that the former UK Prime Minister was made a Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter by the British monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, in the New Year Honours List.

Tony Blair to receive UK knighthood for war crimes in Iraq: Analyst

Tony Blair is scheduled to receive a controversial knighthood for the "war crimes" he instigated during his tenure as the UK's premier, says a British political commentator.

The former British prime minister is set to be made a Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter for his hawkish role in the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

London-based Rodney Shakespeare said in an interview with Press TV that granting the most senior British order of chivalry to Blair despite his infamous involvement in alleged war crimes during the US-led invasion of Iraq is a great surprise.

"This is astonishing. The invasion of Iraq was predicated upon a deliberate lie -- that weapons of mass destruction existed when they did not. Blair openly upheld the lie," he said.

Labour ex-Cabinet minister Lord Mandelson grins at Jeffrey Epstein's birthday party in photo 'taken a YEAR after billionaire financier was charged with soliciting woman for prostitution'

Former Labour Cabinet minister Peter Mandelson was pictured with Jeffrey Epstein in his Paris home a year after the billionaire financier had been charged with sex crimes.

The previously unseen photograph, which has been published by The Sun, shows Tony Blair's former spin chief with Epstein as he blows out candles on a birthday cake.

The photo was reportedly taken inside Epstein's apartment in Paris's Avenue Foch in August 2006.

How the BBC's lack of checks left children at risk of abuse for years after Jimmy Savile was exposed

The BBC put children at risk of sexual abuse for years after the crimes of Jimmy Savile were exposed, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

A leaked report reveals that TV actors, presenters and production staff on some of the Corporation's biggest shows were allowed to work with children without first undergoing criminal records checks to discover if they had child abuse convictions.

The report, compiled by management consultancy firm KPMG in 2018, identified flaws in the way staff on soap operas and dramas were being vetted and warned that children could suffer 'emotional or physical harm'.

UK Military Chief: Russia Cutting Underwater Communication Cables Will Be Considered Act of War

The warning comes ahead of the upcoming Russia-NATO Council gathering, which will deal with Moscow’s proposal on security guarantees that were put forward last month amid Western media and officials’ allegations about a possible Russian “invasion” of Ukraine.

Admiral Sir Tony Radakin, the UK’s new chief of the defence staff, has warned that any attempt by Russia to disrupt crucial underwater communication cables could “potentially” be considered an act of war.

Speaking to The Times, the head of the British Armed Forces expressed concern about what he described as “a phenomenal increase in Russian submarine and underwater activity over the last 20 years”, something that Radakin argued could “put at risk and potentially exploit the world's real information system”.

UK army deployed to hospitals

Military medics have been tasked with aiding the NHS after at least 24 hospital trusts declared critical incidents, amid staffing shortages that risk compromising their ability to care for patients and provide priority services.

The Ministry of Defence confirmed on Friday that 200 military personnel will be deployed for the next three weeks to fill gaps caused by staff having to self-isolate due to a Covid infection or coming into contact a positive case.

The bulk of the force will be stationed in London hospitals, with the city having been hit particularly hard by the Omicron outbreak, pushing medical services beyond their limits. It comes as the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) told the government that it can no longer deny the NHS is facing a “staffing crisis.”

Lawmaker Calls for ‘Paedophile’ Lord Ahmed of Rotherham to Lose His Title

British lawmaker Alexander Stafford MP has called for Lord Ahmed of Rotherham to be stripped of his title, calling the convicted child molestor’s peerage “an insult to his victims”.

Nazir Ahmed was elevated to the House of Lords as a life peer in 1998 on the recommendation of then-Prime Minister Tony Blair, representing Labour until 2013, when he resigned from the leftist party ahead of an internal investigation into comments he made blaming a Jewish conspiracy for his 2009 conviction for dangerous driving over an incident that left a 28-year-old father of two dead.

He continued to sit in the Upper House as an independent until late 2020, however, when he resigned before he could be expelled for another scandal that saw the House of Lords Conduct Committee and Commissioner for Standards accuse him of “sexually assaulting” and “emotionally and sexually” exploiting a member of the public who came to him for help.

UK Preparing "High Impact" Sanctions On Russia Over Ukraine

On Thursday, British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss warned Russia that the UK is working on "high impact" sanctions Western powers could implement over allegations that Moscow is plotting to invade Ukraine.

"We will not accept the campaign Russia is waging to subvert its democratic neighbors," Truss told Parliament, as reported in Reuters. "They have falsely cast Ukraine as a threat to justify their aggressive stance."

British Warship Collided With Russian 'Hunter-Killer' Submarine, Claims UK Defence Ministry

The "collision" news comes amid ongoing claims by Western media outlets and officials that Russia is preparing "an invasion" of Ukraine, allegations that Moscow rejects as unsubstantiated.

The UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) has claimed that a Russian "hunter-killer" submarine collided with a Royal Navy warship, which was on a patrol mission in the North Atlantic a couple of years ago.

A spokesperson said that "in late 2020 a Russian submarine being tracked by HMS Northumberland [Type 23 frigate] came into contact with her towed array sonar", adding, "the Royal Navy regularly tracks foreign ships and submarines in order to ensure the defence of the United Kingdom".

Petition calling for Tony Blair to lose knighthood climbs towards 1 million signatures

The petition calling for Tony Blair to lose the knighthood awarded to him in the Queen's New Year's Honours is nearing 1,000,000 signatures.

Set up on Saturday (January 1), it calls for the appointment - a Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter - not to be given to the longest-serving Labour prime minister.

As of 7.30pm on Thursday (January 6), the number of signatories was at 902,563 and rising at speed.

Knighthoods are offered in the Queen’s gift, without advice from the Government.

But hundreds of thousands have backed the creator of the petition, Angus Scott, in saying that they believe 68-year-old does not deserve the title and it should be rescinded.

Tonight (Thursday) Angus added an update to the petition in its sixth day, saying that "families of soldiers who died in both Iraq and Afghanistan are pleading for their message to be heard by both the Government and the Palace".

Spy chief reacts to China’s mockery of MI6 & CIA

MI6 head Richard Moore tipped his hat to Chinese state media for giving his agency “free publicity,” after Xinhua News produced a satirical video poking fun at London and Washington’s intelligence services.

Entitled ‘No Time to Die Laughing’, the oddball ‘James Bond’ mock-up centers on two ‘MI6’ spies – Agents 0.07 and 0.06 – who are seen discussing the agency’s fixation on China as a “top priority” over a sitcom-like laugh track. Responding to the “leaked video” on Thursday after it was posted by Xinhua, Moore thanked the outlet for its “interest” in the MI6, as well as “the unexpected free publicity.”

UK accused of reviving 'targeted killing' policy against Islamic State in Syria

The UK has been accused of reviving a “targeted killing” policy after its air force killed an arms dealer linked to the Islamic State group (IS) in a drone strike in Syria at the end of October.

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) announced on its website more than a month after the attack that the crew of the Royal Air Force's Reaper drone had “tracked a known terrorist in northern Syria”.

"And at a safe moment, when the individual was alone in a field, carried out a successful attack,” it added in a statement.

According to a report by the Syrians for Truth and Justice (STJ) group, the arms dealer was a man known as Abu Hamza al-Shuhail.

UK Government Admits Evidence For Face Masks Stopping Virus Spread in Schools “Not Conclusive”

The UK government had admitted that the evidence for the efficacy of face masks stopping the spread of COVID-19 in schools is “not conclusive.”

Schools were ordered once again to instruct pupils to wear face masks in classrooms to stop the spread of Omicron, despite warnings that the face coverings are damaging learning.

Now authorities have been forced to acknowledge that proof face masks prevent the spread of the virus is statistically insignificant.

“The government’s own study in the autumn did not provide proof of a statistically significant impact,” reports BBC News.

“Schools where face coverings were used in October 2021 saw a reduction two to three weeks later in Covid absences from 5.3% to 3% – a drop of 2.3 percentage points.”

Furious relatives of fallen troops have vowed to hand their medals back in disgust at Tony Blair’s knighthood as a petition to strip the former prime minister of the honour passed 750,000 signatures.

A group of military parents have started discussing a protest in London to return their Elizabeth Crosses, which are given to the next of kin of those killed in action.

They are enraged that Mr Blair has been knighted having started the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that left their children among more than 600 British servicemen dead.

'Truth Needs to Come Out': BoJo Urged to Release Secret Docs on Wars Under Tony Blair

The call comes amid a public uproar caused by last week's news that former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair had been knighted by the Queen in the New Year Honours List. An online petition to block Blair's knighthood has already topped 700,000 signatures.

A group of UK mothers, who lost their soldier sons during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, has called on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to release all secret documents pertaining to these conflicts that occurred when Tony Blair was at the helm of the government.

The legal bid is being led by Rose Gentle, supported by five more mothers, including Carol Valentine, Hazel Hunt, Caroline Whitaker, Caroline Jane Munday-Baker, and Helen Perry.

If chivalry isn’t already dead, knighting Tony Blair should kill it once and for all

Many Brits have believed for some time now that the honours system in the UK is rotten to the core. The public is sick to death of Z-rate celebrities and multimillionaire sport stars receiving what we call ‘gongs’ for simply doing their jobs. Many are also fed up with political apparatchiks and lickspittles making their way onto the lists.

However, there has been nothing like the furore caused by former UK prime minister Tony Blair receiving a knighthood in the 2021 New Year’s Honours List. In this dishonourable roster, Blair received the highest form of knighthood – a Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter.

Within three days of the announcement, a massive 670,000 people had signed a petition calling for Blair to have his knighthood rescinded. Moreover, an opinion poll taken over the last few days has revealed that 63% of Brits are opposed to calling Blair ‘Sir,’ with only 14% in favour.

Tony Blair: Iraqis 'disgusted' at knighthood being offered to war architect

Iraqi campaigners and politicians have expressed their "disgust" at the decision by the British government to award a knighthood to former Prime Minister Tony Blair, citing his involvement in the 2003 invasion and subsequent occupation.

The anger comes as a petition launched in the UK calling for the former Labour leader to have the honour withdrawn reached over 700,000 signatures.

Blair has been accused of war crimes over his role in the invasion of Iraq, which toppled longtime ruler Saddam Hussein and led to hundreds of thousands of deaths, widespread internecine violence and ongoing instability in Iraq and beyond.

The Picture of Dorian Johnson

HAVE you noticed how haggard Boris Johnson looks these days? Doubtless the cares of becoming a new father (again) are partly to blame, although the wisdom of doing so at the age of 57 and while Prime Minister is debatable. Added to that it has hardly been the easiest of times these past two years, what with Covid (both getting it and governing throughout it). However, isn’t something else perceptible behind those tired eyes – a kind of desiccation of the soul?

UK GOVERNMENT GREASES SKIDS FOR FLEETS OF SURVEILLANCE DRONES OVER CITIES

In what appears to be a cynical PR stunt, the UK government is considering plans to allow women who feel threatened on the street to call upon surveillance drones that would arrive in minutes and shine a bright light on any potential attacker.

What could possibly go wrong?

“Women in fear of an attack will be able to use a phone app to summon a drone, which could arrive within minutes armed with a powerful spotlight and thermal cameras to frighten off any potential assailant,” reports the Telegraph.

Trials will take place on campus at Nottingham University at a cost of £500,000 during which the tech will be used to “protect students and staff.”

The scheme will be submitted to the UK government’s Innovate research program, and could eventually see helicopters being replaced by drones as a front line tool of law enforcement.

The damning truth about Tony Blair's war: His own defence secretary reveals in new memoir an order to burn memo on legality of Iraq invasion. So how can the former Prime Minister be worthy of honour, asks SIMON WALTERS

He was defence secretary as Britain edged towards war – which means Geoff Hoon had a front-row seat for the most controversial moments in Sir Tony’s premiership. His new memoir reveals astonishing insights about the conflict in Iraq... and raises more troubling questions about his former boss’s knighthood.

Downing Street’s orders to ‘burn’ legal advice

Mr Hoon, then defence secretary, says No 10 ordered him to ‘burn’ secret legal advice from Sir Tony’s attorney general, Lord Goldsmith, which said the Iraq war could be illegal.

When the claim first emerged in 2015, the former PM said it was ‘nonsense’ – but Mr Hoon insists in his book, See How They Run, that the order was delivered by Sir Tony’s No 10 chief of staff Jonathan Powell. Mr Hoon defied the order and made sure the advice was locked in a safe at the Ministry of Defence.

Tony Blair's Defence Secretary Geoff Hoon says he was told to BURN secret memo that said Iraq war could be illegal in incendiary revelation that will fuel campaign to strip former PM of knighthood

The campaign to strip Tony Blair of his knighthood was boosted last night by devastating allegations from his own defence secretary.

Geoff Hoon says he was ordered by Downing Street to burn a secret memo that said the 2003 invasion of Iraq could be illegal.

When the claim emerged in 2015, Sir Tony said it was 'nonsense'. But Mr Hoon, who was in charge of defence when the war started, insists the allegation was true and he has now given a sensational blow-by-blow account of a No 10 'cover-up'.

Children all over the country are returning to school today and risk being turned away at the gates if they or their teachers test positive for the virus as commuters returned for the first time since Christmas.

Heads fear up to a quarter of their staff could be struck down in January and have been told to merge classes where necessary but teaching unions insist a return to online teaching at home will be inevitable for some this term despite Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi insisting face-to-face teaching will be the norm.

Students have been told to be tested between two to three times per week either at on-site facilities at their school or by testing themselves at home. Secondary school students must also wear masks in the classroom.

UK warned it would recognize Palestine if Israel annexed West Bank, book reveals

The United Kingdom’s ambassador to the United States warned the Trump administration in June 2020 that if Israel went forward with plans to annex large parts of the West Bank, London would officially recognize the State of Palestine, a new book has revealed.

The message was passed along by Karen Pierce in a meeting she held with then-US president Donald Trump’s Mideast peace envoy Avi Berkowitz and Iran special envoy Brian Hook on June 12, 2020, Israeli journalist Barak Ravid wrote in his book “Trump’s Peace.”

Berkowitz and Hook were dispatched to meet with Pierce by then-senior White House adviser Jared Kushner. While the Trump administration was being inundated by calls from world leaders warning the US against allowing then-prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu to go forward with plans to begin annexing parts of the West Bank on July 1, 2020, it was the response from the UK that went further and was most surprising to the Americans, the book claimed.

Petition to strip Tony Blair of knighthood racks up 400,000 signatures

Hundreds of thousands of people have signed an online petition calling for the removal of knighthood from Tony Blair. The former UK prime minister “should be held accountable for war crimes” instead, it says.

More than 400,000 signatures were left under a Change.org petition urging the UK prime minister to ask the queen to rescind the order in less than a day after it was launched.

Angus Scott, the author of the petition, says the former prime minister “caused irreparable damage to the constitution of the United Kingdom and to the very fabric of the nation’s society,” while he was in power between 1997 and 2007.

The petition specifically accuses Blair of “causing the death of countless innocent, civilian lives and servicemen” by dragging the UK into “various conflicts.”

“For this alone he should be held accountable for war crimes,” it says.

A few years ago, the notoriously crooked Prime Minister Harold Wilson produced what was infamously known as the ‘Lavender List’ of thoroughly undeserved gongs for outrageous cronies.

But Prime Minister Boris Johnson has gone one better and trolled the nation with what history will surely remember for evermore as the Fuck You Honours List.

A gong for Rockefeller stooge and climate con promoter Sir Paul Nurse.

A gong for darker-eyes-than-the-pits-of-hell pandemic king Chris Whitty.

A gong for slippery Big Pharma creature Patrick Vallance.

A gong for egregious jab pusher Jonathan Van Tam.

A gong for the heroically useless, promoted-way-above-her-station chief of the UK Health Security Agency (whatever that is: something evil, that’s for sure) Jenny Harries.

Moscow responds to revelations of British political interference in Russia

Britain has created a network of affiliates in Russia to influence civil society through a system of grants worth millions of dollars annually, Moscow claimed on Sunday.

The sums London spends on “influencing civil society organizations … and steering Russia’s [political] course in a direction favorable for the UK … boggles belief,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova insisted, citing a freshly leaked trove of documents shedding light on the activities of British diplomats in Russia.

UK officials have been spending money on attempts to destabilize the political situation in Russia by “sponsoring” increased protest activity, Zakharova outlined as she accused London of focusing its attention on “increasing social tensions and polarization” within the country.

Military mothers have described Tony Blair's knighthood as the 'ultimate insult' while social media users have branded the former-Prime Minister a war criminal and more than 100,000 signed a petition for his honour to be taken back.

The mothers, who lost their children in Afghanistan, have spoken out against Sir Tony's knighthood and have threatened to return Elizabeth Crosses which are given to bereaved families to show their disgust.

One military mother, Carol Valentine, told the Mirror that Sir Tony's knighthood is the 'ultimate insult', after her son Simon was killed while he cleared land mines in Afghanistan in 2009.

UK Inches Closer To Eliminating Private Car Ownership

UK Government Transport Minister Trudy Harrison recently spoke at a mobility conference, addressing the future of personal mobility. In her comments, she said it was necessary to ditch the "20th-century thinking centred around private vehicle ownership and towards greater flexibility, with personal choice and low carbon shared transport." That’s right, she said the quiet part loud and showed the hand of a growing number of government officials.

Harrison went on to praise not only public transportation but also bike share services, e-scooters, and ride sharing platforms. All of these are supposed to tune down how much carbon the UK is emitting into the atmosphere. As with all choices, this comes at a cost, particularly for those living in rural areas.

The British Want America To Go to War and Used The Beatles as Ammo

Almost every US ally claims to be a friend because of America’s military. It’s really not shared values or even interests. Other nations like being defended by a superpower, so they need not spend much on their militaries.

The result is that America has a couple score spoiled, entitled, and obnoxious "allies" who under-invest in their militaries, whine if the US looks anywhere else, demand constant "reassurance" that Washington will forever protect them even if they do nothing for themselves, and insist that it is in America’s interest to create a permanent defense dole for the indolent, disinterested, irresponsible, and greedy among them – which of course is most of them.

Brexit: ‘the biggest disaster any government has ever negotiated’

ABritish cheesemaker who predicted Brexit would cost him hundreds of thousands of pounds in exports has called the UK’s departure from the EU single market a disaster, after losing his entire wholesale and retail business in the bloc over the past year. Simon Spurrell, the co-founder of the Cheshire Cheese Company, said personal advice from a government minister to pursue non-EU markets to compensate for his losses had proved to be “an expensive joke”.

“It turns out our greatest competitor on the planet is the UK government because every time they do a fantastic deal, they kick us out of that market – starting with the Brexit deal,” he said.

Spurrell predicted in January that Brexit would cost him £250,000 in sales. “We lost £270,000, so I got one thing right,” he said, describing the post-Brexit EU trade deal as the “biggest disaster that any government has ever negotiated in the history of trade negotiations”.
