Former US presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, spoke to BBC Radio 4’s Today programme about an investigation which alleges Russian influence in British politics. The Government has refused to release the report until after the December 12 election. Mrs Clinton told the BBC she was “dumbfounded” by the move and called it “inexplicable and shameful”.

In Major Reversal, Farage Says Brexit Party Won't Challenge Tory-Held Seats

After initially insisting that the Brexit Party would contest more than 600 seats in the upcoming UK general election and denying rumors about a possible "alliance" with the Tories, Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage has back-tracked, big time.

Instead of challenging every seat, the BP's election strategy will leave out 317 Tory-held seats won during the last election, increasing the chances of a pro-Brexit majority. Now, the BP will focus on Labour-held seats, particularly seats situated in districts that voted in favor of 'Leave'.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wow, that is a pretty spectacular one hundred-eighty degree turn, and one that just may work to Farage's advantage.

The Battle For The Soul Of Great Britain

Authored by Mike Shedlock via MishTalk,

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and Conservative candidate Boris Johnson are in an epic battle for the soul of Britain.

Radical Marxist Corbyn
In a forced distribution scheme, Labour Proposes Workers to Get 10% of Company Shares

Rebecca Long-Bailey, the shadow business secretary, and John McDonnell, the shadow chancellor, want big companies to give employees a 10% stake in their business and a seat on their boards.

They plan to renationalize rail, water, energy and Royal Mail, increase corporation tax and the minimum wage, and extend workers’ rights.

Companies doing business with the government will have bosses’ pay capped and there will be a tax on financial transactions.

Corbyn proposes sheltering the homeless and forcing homeowners to sell their homes to renters at a "reasonable" price, set by the government.

‘Britain’s biggest snowflake’: Parents slam Brighton head teacher for banning children from playing tag because it's 'too rough'

A head teacher has been branded 'Britain's biggest snowflake' for banning children from playing 'rough' contact games like tag.

Joanne Smith told pupils at Rudyard Kipling Primary School in Brighton, East Sussex, they had to play with 'gentle hands' - banning traditional games like 'it' or 'British Bulldog.'

Instead, children are being encouraged to hold hands or clap with each other while in the playground.

Parents of children at the school reacted with fury when they were told about the 'gentle hands' policy.

Labour support collapses across the country as Jeremy Corbyn lurches from one disaster to the next - while Tories pull ahead in leave-voting heartlands, new poll reveals

In Yorkshire and Humberside, the predicted Labour vote share is now just 29 per cent, compared to 49 per cent in 2017.

In the North East, Labour's support has gone from 55 per cent to 32 per cent, in the North West from 55 per cent to 30 per cent and in the East Midlands, from 41 per cent to just 22 per cent.

In Wales, Labour support has plummeted from 49 per cent to 29 per cent, leaving them just one point ahead of the Conservatives on 28 per cent.

In London, which voted heavily to Remain, the Lib Dems gained a ten-point boost to 19 per cent, while Labour remain the largest party on 39 per cent despite a 16-point drop since 2017.

Labour support COLLAPSES in the North: Election poll shows voters REJECTING Corbyn

Pollster YouGov showed Labour support is collapsing in the north, with prominent industrial counties - some of which that have voted Labour for decades - Cheshire, Cumbria, Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Merseyside now jumping ship to Tory in a spectacular show of support for the Brexiteer Prime Minister. The poll shows a drop in support for Jeremy Corbyn by an eye-watering 25 points compared to a drop in numbers for Mr Johnson by just three points. This puts the Tories on 33 percent in the stubborn region that voted overwhelmingly to leave.

The Lib Dems are at 17 percent, up 12 points since the last electoral in 2017 and Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party are up by the same amount.

Support is at 14 percent for the Brexit Party.

Children's chain Mamas & Papas collapses into administration and closes six stores making 73 staff redundant immediately just days after Mothercare went bust

Baby shop Mamas & Papas has collapsed into administration today with six store closures and up to 125 jobs axed - just three days after rival Mothercare went bust putting 2,500 people out of work.

The retailer has made 73 staff redundant with immediate effect and has put 54 further jobs at risk within its head office as another of Britain's high street chains crumbled.

Mamas & Papas said its unprofitable stores in Aberdeen, Preston, Milton Keynes, Lincoln, Leamington and Fareham closed today as a result.

The company, which had 27 stores and three concessions, said its remaining stores will continue to trade as normal, as well as online.

Tories demand 'Remain alliance' is investigated by the electoral watchdog over its anti-Brexit pact in 60 seats

The Conservatives are demanding the election watchdog investigates the pact brokered between Remain parties, which hopes to claim some high-profile Tory scalps on December 12.

An alliance between the Liberal Democrats, the Green Party and Wales' Plaid Cymru in 60 seats is targeting a slate of marginal constituencies currently held by Boris Johnson allies.

Tory Chairman James Cleverly has written to the Electoral Commission demanding the watchdog probes Unite To Remain - the third-party campaign group credited with forging the alliance - suggesting it could break spending laws.

Massive hummus recall extended in UK over SALMONELLA FEARS

A massive recall of hummus from UK supermarkets has been extended and now includes some 80 products potentially contaminated with Salmonella the country’s Food Safety Authority has warned.

Dip maker Zorba Delicacies raised the alarm after discovering potential contamination in its products in the last week of October. Zorba supplies major retailers like Aldi, Lidl, Sainsbury's, John Lewis and Iceland among others.

The initial recall affected goods with a use-by date up to and including November 7 but that has now been extended by ten days to include products expiring on November 17.

I will be ‘long dead’ before Brexit happens – Lord of the Rings star Sir Ian McKellen

Sir Ian McKellen, the legendary British actor who famously played Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings movies, has claimed somewhat amusingly that he’ll be “long dead” before Brexit is completed.

The 80-year-old gave his blunt assessment while speaking to the Press Association, insisting that he has become emotionally “withdrawn” and is treating the whole British debacle as a game of chess – suggesting that MPs are somewhat clueless.

"...all I can say is they [lawmakers] are wretched players and don’t know a pawn from a queen."

Theatres will BAN the phrase 'ladies and gentlemen' under new guildelines from actors' union Equity

Audiences will no longer hear the words, 'ladies and gentlemen', while performers should not have 'backhanded compliments' or be described as 'brave', under new gender-neutral guidelines from actors' union, Equity.

Published last week, the advice is aimed at people and venues working with LGBT performers.

Campaigners for LGBT rights say that such phrases as 'ladies and gentlemen' exclude people who do not identify as male or female, but rather as non-binary, such as singer Sam Smith.

Fracking halted after government pulls support

The government has called a halt to shale gas extraction - or fracking - in England amid fears about earthquakes.

It comes after a report by the Oil and Gas Authority said it was not possible to predict the probability or size of tremors caused by the practice.

Fracking has been suspended since a tremor in Lancashire in August.

Business Secretary Andrea Leadsom said shale gas had "huge potential" but the government was "no longer convinced" it could be extracted safely.

UK election polls: Boris Johnson soars into 17-point opinion poll lead ahead of Jeremy Corbyn

Boris Johnson and the Conservatives have surged to a huge 17-point lead at the start of the general election campaign, a major poll revealed today.

The Ipsos MORI survey shows the Tories up eight points since September to 41 per cent, while Labour is marooned on 24.

At the same time, the Prime Minister’s personal scores have leaped, including for his handling of Brexit, while those of Jeremy Corbyn have stayed at rock bottom.

The findings are excruciating for the Labour leader, suggesting that his fence-sitting on Brexit has turned into a disaster.

BBC Question Time: Remainer bias yet again as Brexiteers outnumbered on tonight’s panel

Host, Fiona Bruce will be joined by three representatives from the three main political parties in Tory MP Paul Scully, Labour’s Jon Ashworth and Lib Dem MP Layla Moran. Also joining those three will be journalist Isabel Oakshott and vice president of the European Parliament, Mairead McGuiness.

The programme has in the past been accused of presenting a bias towards Remain voters and some have once again accused the show of bias once again as only Mr Scully and Ms Oakshott will represent the 17.4 million leave voters.

We must act now to save Julian Assange and the Rule of Law

During October, a quarter of a million people have made a half million visits to this website. These are only the visits to this website. The number does not include the visits to my columns carried on scores of other websites both in English and in Foreign translation where my writings are republished.

Yet, in the past two days as of 4pm today, only 450 people have signed the petition to free Julian Assange from his unlawful imprisonment that is posted on my website.

Surely my readers can do better than that.

If we cannot save Julian Assange, we cannot save ourselves.

'She shouldn't get £2MILLION for doing a DEADLY job': Grenfell families' fury as fire chief Dany Cotton is set to retire at 50 with gold-plated pension - as report blasts fatal 'stay put' advice that she DEFENDED despite 72 deaths

Survivors of the Grenfell Tower blaze today criticised the fire chief for retiring before the second phase of the inquiry on a pension worth up to £2million.

London Fire Brigade commissioner Dany Cotton, who will step down aged 50 next year, has been slammed in an official report for 'remarkable insensitivity'.

This came after she gave testimony that she would have done nothing differently following the tragedy in West London in June 2017 which left 72 people dead.

Now, survivors have told the London Evening Standard that Ms Cotton should participate in the second phase of the inquiry and be prohibited from retiring.

Live Updates: UK MPs Clash Over Snap Election After Brexit Delayed Again

On Monday, Brussels approved another deadline extension for the United Kingdom, giving the country time until 31 January 2020 to ratify the deal, negotiated by Boris Johnson, and leave the bloc.

Heated debates in London continue as Prime Minister Boris Johnson is urging the Parliament to hold early elections in December.

The head of the government tabled the motion on Monday, but MPs rejected the snap vote, with only 299 lawmakers supporting the bill, while it needed at least a two-thirds majority to be adopted. Now, Johnson is expected to introduce a short bill needing just a simple majority in order to hold the elections.

Boris Johnson to abandon general election bill if amendments pass allowing 16-year-olds and EU citizens to vote

The government will pull plans for a 12 December general election if parliament passes amendments to allow 16 -17 year-olds or EU nationals to vote in it, Downing Street has said.

Number 10 sources made clear that they regard the changes to the franchise proposed by Labour MPs as attempts to “wreck” the plan for a snap election put forward by prime minister Boris Johnson.

The PM’s official spokesman told reporters that it would be “logistically impossible to deliver” the changes in time for a national vote in little more than five weeks’ time.

A government bid to prevent amendments to its election bill was rejected in the House of Commons by 312 votes to 295.

North Queensland backbencher George Christensen will seek the British Government's permission to meet with the WikiLeaks founder ahead of his extradition hearing next year.

Well, it seems at least ONE Australian politician has some courage and principle.

Mr Morrison, the Australian PM , said today that Julian Assange will not receive any special treatment !!!?? Special treatment?? We don’t want special treatment for Assange! We want just and equal treatment for Assange. Why is Assange locked up in British solitary confinement? Why is he being tortured and denied proper health care? He has never been found guilty of any crime, in the UK or anywhere else. Ever heard of Habeas Corpus Mr Morrison? That’s a legal principle our ancestors gave their lives for and it means no citizen can be locked up indefinitely without charge.

‘A 1950s show trial’: John Pilger describes ‘disgraceful’ courtroom treatment of Julian Assange by UK judge

Veteran British journalist John Pilger has blasted the “atrocious” and “appalling” treatment of Julian Assange by a judge who decided this week to reject the whistleblower’s request to delay his upcoming US extradition hearing.

“To say it is surreal is not enough, it is simply appalling,” Pilger, who was present in the courtroom on Monday, told RT’s Going Underground. Pilger accused District Judge Vanessa Baraitser of using “disgraceful” and “dictatorial gestures” toward Assange and said she was clearly biased in favor of the attorney acting on behalf of the US government.

“Her bias was incandescent,” Pilger said, adding: “I’ve never seen anything like this. It belonged in a show trial in the 1950s… Moscow, Prague, you name it.”

Fury as 'poor man's Cromwell' Speaker John Bercow BLOCKS Boris Johnson from holding a 'meaningful' vote on his Brexit deal today - as PM faces desperate battle with MPs tomorrow to get legislation through Commons for 'do or die' Halloween date

Speaker John Bercow today sparked fury by blocking Boris Johnson's latest bid to trigger a vote on his Brexit deal.

MPs denied the PM 'in principle' approval for his deal over the weekend, instead postponing the showdown and obliging him to ask the EU for an extension.

And in his latest dramatic intervention in the Brexit process this afternoon, Mr Bercow turned down a fresh effort to stage the vote.

Tories accused the Speaker - who is meant to be an independent referee on Parliamentary rules - of 'sabotage' to stop Brexit, branding him a 'poor man's Cromwell'.

How dare they take us for fools: DANIEL HANNAN blasts MPs who claim they only want to avoid No Deal and then dodge a vote on one

It is not their dishonesty that rankles. It is the insult to our intelligence.

For three years, Labour and Lib Dem MPs have twisted and turned, seeking to wriggle out of the promises they had given in advance to accept the referendum result.

In the process, they have smashed up our constitution. They have ignored the norms on which our democracy rests. They have torn precedent to shreds.

They have politicised the Speaker’s chair. They have turned us against one another. They have made our country a laughing stock abroad.

Yet still they carry on, telling us their unconstitutional schemes are somehow all about upholding our constitution, claiming that their contempt for democracy is about trusting the people.

On Saturday, they reached their lowest point yet. Having gone to court to demand that MPs have a ‘meaningful vote’ on the Brexit terms, they chose, when the moment came, to avoid that vote.

The House of Fools: Britain could have begun to heal today after the end of our Brexit purgatory but MPs instead subjected us to more agonising delay

It was the moment an exasperated nation let out a collective howl of frustration.

At precisely 2.50pm today, when Britain might finally have hoped to move ahead with Brexit, Commons Speaker John Bercow announced that MPs had again voted – by 322 to 306 – for more delays to the seemingly interminable process.

But a defiant Boris Johnson immediately vowed not to be beaten by the 'wreckers', saying any further delays to his October 31 deadline would be 'pointless, expensive and corrosive of public trust'.

And last night his ploy to outmanoeuvre the Brexit blockers was revealed, as he sent not just one letter to the EU, but three – one asking for an extension, as Parliament had compelled him to do, and two more making it clear it was not the Government's wish.

Oct 19 16:30

MAIL ON SUNDAY COMMENT: Can't our political class grasp this isn't a game and they're not in a college debating society?

We cannot stand much more of this. The national blood pressure has reached danger point. Can our political class really not grasp that they are no longer free to behave as if they were playing teenage games in a college debating society?

Each repeated failure by Parliament to agree on an orderly exit from the EU puts more strain on our constitution. Faith in the House of Commons as a place of wisdom, experience and responsibility, already weakening, has almost entirely gone.

Nor will it quickly recover. As the Prime Minister so rightly said during yesterday’s debate, the behaviour of MPs is corroding the public’s trust. Much more of this, and our whole tradition of parliamentary politics may be in danger. There is a feverish, short-tempered mood abroad in the country and it would be unwise for anyone to ignore it.

Brexit history made today: 1,212 days since referendum MPs to pass deal by just TWO votes

Calculations by the Daily Express show that Mr Johnson could get the deal over the line by just two votes after Labour MP Melanie Onn offered her support last night.

She urged fellow Labour MPs to "use this unique chance to help us move on and get back to helping our constituents".

"The risk of letting this final shot at a deal slip through our fingers is too great.

"Our collective hope rests on brave Labour MPs, and indeed others, who can see that," she said.

Ms Onn is one of several Labour MPs who have signalled they will back the PM.

So far 15 MPs have said they would switch to backing Mr Johnson’s new deal having voted against Theresa May’s doomed withdrawal agreement earlier this year.

A boost for workers’ rights that could win Labour round: Boris Johnson pledges set ‘highest possible standards’ into LAW – despite Jeremy Corbyn saying deal is a ‘race to the bottom’

Moderate Labour MPs could be persuaded to back the Prime Minister’s Brexit deal after he offered a series of sweeteners on workers’ rights.

Speaking in Brussels last night, Boris Johnson said he would ‘gladly’ make a commitment to maintain the ‘highest possible standards’ on environmental and social protections.

And the Daily Mail understands that Downing Street is now offering to write them into the Withdrawal Agreement Bill to make them legally binding.

Jeremy Corbyn rejects PM’s ‘sell-out deal’… 26 minutes before it is published! Labour leader is criticised for trashing agreement won by Boris Johnson without reading it

Jeremy Corbyn was criticised for rejecting Boris Johnson’s EU deal soon after it was announced yesterday – almost half an hour before the details were revealed.

The Labour leader, who has repeatedly promised to deliver the people’s wishes on Brexit, claimed the deal ‘should be rejected’ shortly after Mr Johnson revealed that an agreement had been reached.

He described it as a ‘sell-out deal’ – even though the legal text of the withdrawal deal was not actually published for another 26 minutes.

Mr Corbyn also confirmed he would support a referendum on the deal before it comes into effect – a proposition that would delay Britain’s leaving date further.

Oct 17 15:37

If MPs snatch disaster from the jaws of victory, they'll never be forgiven

So what exactly is new about this deal? First, there is a new 'protocol' to obviate the need for the Irish backstop.

Northern Ireland would remain in the UK customs territory but stay closely aligned to the European single market. Significantly, it would also benefit from any new trade deals we strike, giving it the best of both worlds.

There would be no border checks on the island of Ireland, but goods travelling from Great Britain to Northern Ireland would be subject to customs inspection.

If those goods were to be sold on to an EU country, the UK would collect tariffs on the bloc's behalf.

This is, of course, a delicate change, as some argue it places a customs barrier down the Irish Sea.

Boris' Brexit deal overwhelmingly backed by Brits...MPs told JUST DO IT! – Exclusive poll

In a further sign that the public is fed up with the Brexit deadlock the ComRes poll showed that nearly half of Remainers how agree that Mr Johnson’s agreement means it is time to leave the EU. Overall, some 40 per cent of voters said they support Mr Johnson’s deal compared to 31 per cent who don’t.

The comprehensive survey, which was carried out today, also showed that almost nine in ten (85 per cent) future Conservative voters support the new Brexit deal, as do more than half of Brexit Party voters (54 per cent), approaching one in five Lib Dem voters (17 per cent) and one in ten Labour voters (13 per cent).

Two thirds of 2016 Leavers say they support Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal (66 per cent), as do one in five 2016 Remainers (19 per cent).

New Developments in the Skripal Case Reveal it for the Sham it Always Was.

Earlier this month (October 2019) however, the Coroners Court issued a public statement in which is announced that the inquest into Dawn Sturgess’ death had been adjourned indefinitely.

This is an extraordinary development. It means in effect that the whole of the allegations made over the preceding 18 months, about the cause of death, the persons allegedly responsible, and all the political and propaganda barrage that went with it has now effectively being abandoned.

The Coroner’s Court cannot establish to the requisite standard how Ms Sturgess died, much less the identity of any individual or government that might be responsible.

As might be expected, the announcement by the British coroner has been met with a studied silence why the western media. The linking of Ms Sturgess’ death to the alleged activities of two Russian citizens seen in Salisbury on the day the Skripal’s became ill, and the lurid allegations about their alleged activities, have similarly collapsed.

Extinction Rebellion CANCELS plan for Gatwick demo after furious East London commuters drag them off roof of Tube train and rough them up

As their eco-protest enters its 11th day XR activists launched a co-ordinated strike on three London Underground stations, clambering on top of carriages and glueing themselves to doors despite Monday's city-wide ban issued by the Met Police.

But their efforts to disrupt public transport were met with a furious backlash from commuters, industry groups and politicians leading one XR spokesman to admit the move had been a 'huge own goal'.

A hastily-deleted tweet comparing themselves to icon of the nonviolent black civil rights movement, Rosa Parks, was also met with opprobrium from social media users.

Video surfaced from Canning Town station of a protester seemingly being beaten and kicked by angry workers on the station platform having been dragged bodily from the top of a train.

Culture Secretary Nicky Morgan announced that a new law forcing people to prove they are 18 or over to access content would not be going ahead.

The legislation had already been delayed twice, including in July, after organisations including the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) questioned how effective it would be.

DUP pulls the rug on Brexit deal: Boris Johnson's hopes of agreement at EU summit crumble as unionists condemn Northern Ireland 'consent' plan - with the PM now looking doomed to miss his 'do or die' October 31 deadline

Boris Johnson's hopes of honouring his 'do or die' vow to deliver Brexit by Halloween look to be crumbling today after the DUP pulled the rug.

UK and EU negotiators are frantically trying to find a way through the deadlock in time for tomorrow's Brussels summit.

But the delicate process has been derailed by objections from the DUP, who complained that the mechanism for getting 'consent' from the people of Northern Ireland breaks the Good Friday Agreement - saying unionists should have a veto.

Worsening drug shortages are causing patients to be admitted to hospital because they can't get vital medications pills to prevent seizures and anaphylaxis

Worsening drug shortages have caused some patients to be admitted to hospital, a major survey has revealed.

One in four pharmacists said their patients have come to harm because they could not get vital medication, a poll by the Pharmacists' Defence Association (PDA) found.

Some chemists told the pharmacy union that people with epilepsy have suffered seizures because of a shortage of anti-epileptic drugs.

Another patient was admitted to hospital with anaphylactic shock because shortages meant they were not able to get epipens to keep at home.

The survey of 1,000 pharmacists also found that some patients are having to go without potentially life-saving stroke prevention pills.

Now trans and gay hate crime will mean SIX months in jail after judges are ordered to crack down with harsher sentences than those that are given for domestic burglaries

Judges have been ordered to hand out tough jail terms in a crackdown on transgender and homophobic hate crimes.

Offenders found guilty of stirring up hatred on the grounds of sexuality should get at least six months in prison, new sentencing guidelines state.

And there should be a six-year jail sentence for those convicted of the worst cases of intolerance against gay or transgender people.

The instructions, released yesterday by the judge-led Sentencing Council – the statutory body that recommends punishment levels – mean transgender hate offences will receive harsher sentences than domestic burglaries.

The Smart Meter snoopers... already in homes as part of a little-known £20m plan to track energy habits

Tens of thousands of families are being tracked in a multi-million-pound government scheme to let tech firms access their smart meter data.

At least 20 companies are being given a share of £20 million to develop products that can be used alongside smart meters.

Those involved say the aim is to help households make further energy savings — but one of the firms entrusted with taxpayers' money has previously boasted of being able to 'monetise' highly personalised consumer data.

The same company is currently working with Amazon to enable customers to ask its virtual assistant Alexa how much power they have used and when.

The Government wants all UK homes to have a smart meter to monitor power usage by 2024, but the bodged rollout is set to cost at least £13 billion.

Extinction Rebellion PAYING protestors £200,000 to cause chaos and grind London to a halt

EXTINCTION REBELLION is paying its campaigners up to £400 a week to cause chaos on the streets of the UK, it has been revealed.

Protesters have received payments of more than £200,000 since the beginning of the movement. The demonstrators are demanding urgent action on climate change claiming “the government has failed to protect us”. The documents, seen by the Mail on Sunday, revealed activists have been paid more than £200,000 since the start of the scheme, the cost of the payments is increasing by at least £40,000 a month and activists are targeting high net worth individuals for more funds.

The documents have also shown the protest group spent £5,000 on a camping tour of Europe for key members.

The sudden collapse last month of one of Europe's biggest travel groups, Thomas Cook, ruined the holidays of 600,000 stranded tourists.

Hundreds of thousands more had trips booked when the news was announced.

But for parts of Spain's tourist sector, Thomas Cook's demise is also an existential threat.

The economic future of industry workers and staff at Thomas Cook's local suppliers and subsidiaries is at stake.

Opposition MPs and Brexit rebels are planning to ambush Boris Johnson and force him to hold a second referendum on EU membership.

Labour's Hilary Benn said he was looking at ways to get MPs to support a 'people's vote' when the Commons returns for a special Saturday sitting on October 19.

Those behind the plan want a lengthy Brexit extension and a new referendum by the end of March next year – with a general election only following afterwards.

Winston Churchill – Traitor and Murderer

“World history: There are two world histories. One is the official and full of lies, destined to be taught in schools – the other is the secret history, which harbours the true causes and occurrences.” Honore de Balzac

Winston Churchill; the man voted in a newspaper poll as the ‘greatest ever Englishman,’ was actually an evil, self-serving, narcissistic, opportunistic, hypocritical, treacherous, traitorous, perverted paedophile and a murdering psychopath.

Preposterous you say? Read on and see if you still believe this statement to be untrue at the end of this article…

The truth about Winston Churchill is that he was a menace to liberty, and a disaster for Britain, for Europe, for the United States of America, and for Western civilisation itself.

Absent-minded James Bond film crew sparks TERROR SCARE at UK air base, get hundreds evacuated

A crew shooting the latest James Bond installment caused mass panic at the UK’s largest Royal Air Force (RAF) base, after careless workers left their van at the military facility following a day of filming.

Brize Norton airbase was hosting technicians working on scenes for ‘No Time To Die’, but the routine film shoot seems to have gone terribly awry. The crew reportedly left a van at the base that had an expired security pass. The discovery of the sketchy van sent the base into crisis mode, prompting the evacuation of an estimated 400 people while sniffer dogs and bomb squads combed the area.

Piers Morgan rages at Extinction Rebellion founder 'Practice what you preach!

“With respect, answer my question, do you have a TV at home? Do your kids use iPads and computers? Yes or no? Can you answer these questions? Do you walk your kids to school?” Piers grilled.

After strumbling over a few words, Skeena said: “It’s not relevant to the planet emergency.”

“Do you see the problem with all this? You go on about ‘My kids can’t get out of bed because they’re all so terrified,’ I’m not surprised they're terrified because your mum’s telling them everyday the planet’s about to end, and yet, I bet your own carbon footprint, for all the stuff I’ve just mentioned is terrible," Piers added.

“So why don’t you give up your computers, give up your television, give up your air conditioning, walk your kids to school, get a bike to the studio. Why don’t you practice what you preach!” The presenter raged.

EU considers major climbdown to hand Boris Brexit deal victory in last minute panic

EUROPEAN UNION leaders could be about to offer Boris Johnson a major concession in a desperate bid to revive Brexit talks ahead of next week’s crunch summit.

EU capitals are considering a unilateral exit clause from the controversial Northern Ireland backstop after a set number of years. Under the plans, the Northern Ireland Assembly would be handed a vote on whether to continue with or revoke the measure, as long as both communities in the province agree to it. This could essentially set a five-year time-limit to the backstop, which would be seen as a huge victory for the Prime Minister.

Army forgets to cast white women in its new PC advert: Chiefs put out last-minute appeal for Caucasian soldiers after focusing 'too much' on minorities in their latest TV campaign

Army chiefs have issued a last-minute plea for white female soldiers to appear in a recruitment campaign after focusing 'too hard' on finding ethnic minority troops for the TV adverts.

Filming of the £1million 2020 Army Belonging campaign will begin in Morocco tomorrow on a sandy set intended to recreate the battlefields of Afghanistan.

But just days before cameras were due to roll, top brass realised they had not recruited enough white women to take part – while all the roles for troops from black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds were filled.

Girls are skipping school to avoid sharing gender neutral toilets with boys after being left to feel unsafe and ashamed

Gender-neutral toilets in schools have left girls feeling unsafe and even put their health at risk, parents and teachers have warned.

Girls who are menstruating are so anxious about sharing facilities with boys that some are staying at home for fear of being made to feel 'period shame'.

With a growing number of both primary and secondary schools installing unisex toilets, some girls are risking infections by refusing to urinate all day.

Others are so fearful they have stopped drinking liquids at school.

Lib Dem humiliation: Jo Swinson's party nosedives in new voting poll as Conservatives soar

New polling from Opinium Research, shows 38 percent of the public would vote for the Tories. The poll, shared by Britain Elects, saw Labour stuck on 23 percent. However, it was the Lib Dems that saw the biggest shift as the public ditched the party.

Data now shows only 15 percent would vote for Jo Swinson’s group - down by five percent.

That is only three points about the Brexit Party.

The poll was carried out between October 3 and 4.

UK weather: Britain hit by SNOW in 10 days as forecasters warn COLDEST winter for 70 years

Flagging solar activity leading to cooler than normal Gulf Stream waters will in part drive the cold weather, he added.

It could mean Britain is gearing up for one of the most savage winters on record rivalling the mega-chiller of 1963 – the coldest for 200 years.

Mr Madden said: “The unusually cold weather will in part be due to a period of low solar activity.

“This is relevant as solar energy effects ocean currents including the Gulf Stream currents which have a knock-on effect on the jet stream brining cold air in the UK and bringing these weather patterns.

“Applying these factors to long-range weather indications can successfully allow us to identify cold weather patterns coming up.

“Similar methods have allowed us to identify some previous record-breaking cold weather events such as those seen in 2010 and 2013 when cold weather lasted into spring.”

HomeUK NewsFreezing to death: Unheated homes killed over 16,000 people across UK last winter, govt watchdog finds

Staggering energy prices are taking a toll on those unable to pay their bills, a UK regulator has admitted, confirming that thousands of people may have died because of fuel poverty and lack of heating during winter.
The most vulnerable households spend more on their energy bills than wealthier ones, and “can therefore be at greater risk of fuel poverty,” according to a comprehensive new study by the Office of Gas and Energy Markets (Ofgem) on Thursday.

Fuel poverty, a common UK term for customers who cannot afford to keep adequately warm at an affordable cost, “increases the risk that people [will] develop ill health,” it acknowledged.

Over winter 2017-18, we estimate that fuel poverty may have contributed to 5,500 excess winter deaths and that 16,500 excess winter deaths may have been linked to people living in cold homes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelieable: the British government kills its own poor with hypothermia, because these people cannot afford the fuel to heat their homes?!?!?

The Brits could use a no-confidence, snap election right the hell now, to get these monsters who created this horrific suffering, out of office!!

Brexit or greedy big pharma? UK pharmacies on a ‘knife-edge’ amid growing drug shortages

The UK is suffering from a serious drug shortage that affects all 36 categories of medicine, according to a new survey. The crisis has been attributed to a number of factors – none of them related to Brexit.

Druggists are struggling to explain the medicine shortfall to “angry and desperate” patients, according to a survey of 420 pharmacy professions released by Chemist and Druggist magazine.

The shortfall has hit all major medicine categories, from laxatives to anti-fungal drugs.

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) drugs – used to treat female menopause – have the most severe supply problems, with 84 percent of respondents struggling to get hold of these products.

There are also not enough contraceptives (reported by 67 percent of pharmacy staff) as well as supply issues with anti-epileptic drugs (noted by 58 percent of respondents).

UK: ‘Anti-racism’ conference banned white people from speaking

The Edinburgh University has been accused of supporting ‘blatant racism’ for having hosted a supposed ‘anti-racism’ conference which banned white people from speaking.

The conference, called ‘Resisting Whiteness 2019’, took place over the weekend and was organized by a group which purports to oppose racism and describes itself as a QTPOC (queer and trans people of color) organization.

The event’s organizers allege that it seeks to ‘amplify the voices of people of color’ and to give ‘people of color a platform to talk’, the Telegraph reports.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Racism in reverse is still racism.

Khan’s London: 16-strong Knife Gang Singles Out White Victims

A 16-strong knife gang targetted a group of young athletes in London’s Finsbury Park, robbing and threatening to kill the three white people in the group but telling the black people with them “You’re good.”

The six victims, while walking home through the eponymous park, found “They were being tailed by one of [the gang] on a bike,” recalled Adrian Klemens, a coach at the Dynamic Sports Academy, in comments reported by the Islington Gazette.

“Then there were 16 of them. They circled them and picked one [of the victims] off to the side and said: ‘Give me your phone or I will stab you — put in your Apple Pay password’,” Klemens continued.

The Shot Heard Round the World: The Battles of Lexington and Concord

The Shot Heard Round the World:
The Battles of Lexington and Concord

By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April's breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world.
The foe long since in silence slept;
Alike the conqueror silent sleeps;
And Time the ruined bridge has swept
Down the dark stream which seaward creeps.
On this green bank, by this soft stream,
We set to-day a votive stone;
That memory may their deed redeem,
When, like our sires, our sons are gone.
Spirit, that made those heroes dare
To die, and leave their children free,
Bid Time and Nature gently spare

Health secretary 'looking seriously' at compulsory vaccines for schoolchildren

The health secretary has said he is "looking very seriously" at making vaccinations compulsory for all children going to school in England.

Some experts have suggested it may be necessary to address falling rates of immunisation and a surge in diseases like measles.

Matt Hancock told an event at the Tory conference he had taken legal advice this week on how to go about it.

Unvaccinated children were "putting other children at risk", he said.

It's A Numbers Game In The Coup To Stop Johnson And Brexit

I told you the other day that there was a coup underway by the elites I call The Davos Crowd. It started with the British Supreme Court overturning centuries of the balance of powers and ended with the Democrats in Congress announcing impeachment proceedings against President Trump.

When the decision came down from the Supreme Court I began my weekly article for Strategic Culture Foundation. In that piece I outline what the dynamics are and what the options were for both sides of the Brexit conundrum.
