Rupa Huq MP SHUTS DOWN speech by Polish anti-Islamism commentator Rafał Ziemkiewicz

in Islamism/World News by

In the last couple of days, Rupa Huq, MP for Ealing Central and Acton, has successfully bullied a Polish writer and social activist, Rafał Ziemkiewicz, who was due to give a speech in Acton criticising Islamism, into cancelling his trip.

Rupa lied in her tweet stating ‘he refused to debate with me’ when what actually happened is Rupa wrote to the Home Office trying to bar his entry into the UK, and when that failed she got her mates in the Metropolitan police to threaten the premises that were due to host the debate with having their licence revoked if they went ahead.

Rupa described Rafał’s intended UK tour as ‘hate speech’. The Guardian published Rupa’s view on why Rafał should be barred from entering the UK but refused to publish Rafał’s letter response to her.

She also claimed that Rafał is a Holocaust denier which is not correct – Rafał actually called for an exhumation of the Jedwabne mass grave – this has been supported by the Mayor of Jedwabne – and the campaign was led by another guy, a historian called Krzysztof Krasowski, who wanted to determine whether the Germans were behind the Jedwabne massacre during the War, which a Princeton professor had claimed was perpetrated by Poles.

This is sheer hypocrisy from Rupa Huq, who has previously suggested that the UK should apologise for creating the state of Israel.

The same Rupa Huq has failed to speak out against the Al Quds March in London where Islamists openly call for the state of Israel to be destroyed. She has failed to call out Shaykh Bahm from South Africa who called Jews ‘fleas’ and who came to speak at an Islamic Conference a few weeks ago, also speaking at the Palestine expo in August last year. She has failed to speak out against Anjem Choudhary being released early from prison.

As outspoken ex-Muslim Shazia Hobbs pointed out in one of the comments: “We allow hate preachers from Pakistan to come to UK & tour mosques, spreading their poison. Hate preachers who are banned from addressing crowds in Pakistan.”

In fact many people spoke out very strongly against Rupa Huq’s censorship.

A few Polish accounts supported Rupa, one of which was clearly a fake profile with 8 followers that had been set up the day before simply to comment supportively on Rupa Huq’s account.

Oxfam and all politically charged left wing campaign groups have to be disbanded

in Anglophobia / Marxism/World News by

The great and the good are taking to the airwaves to denounce Oxfam and its paedophile/prostitution racket. From former and current secretary generals of the UN – and I have no time for the UN, which I believe also has to be disbanded – are queuing up to condemn and distance themselves from Oxfam.

The Oxfam scandal is a systemic wide, institutional cover up at the highest levels of the sex and abuse scandals currently infecting our aid and human rights industries. Issues have been raised for thirty years but have been ignored. Paedophiles are predatory and have flocked to the aid industry, according to the National Crime Agency.

These disgusting men, who were having mass sex with prostitutes and children, who have broken various international anti sex trade rules, once they were ‘let go’ from Oxfam, were able to slip through the interview net, by getting friends in the industry to write references to continue to recycle themselves to prey on young vulnerable people by using taxpayers’ cash and donations from the public.

Why did other recruiting charities not check with the Oxfam’s HR department? Because the human rights industry portrays itself as angels on earth who can do no wrong. They are leftist liberals who damn the rest of us for questioning controlling our borders and migration. They are political campaigners, not charity workers.

I have debated Oxfam and others over the years, each time with a highly paid, middle class, highly educated ‘researcher’ roughly on £60k per annum (Oxfam), who openly sneer down their noses and have trouble breathing the same air as me.

I have debated them in Calais where they would like the rioting, marauding and economic £ seeking migrants to be given a British passport, a home and benefits, where UK female aid workers are providing their own ‘aid’ by having sex with migrants and transporting them illegally into the UK.

I have debated them in the Greek migrant camps. Where the aid workers openly admit they do not believe in the nation state and borders. One silly British girl said she would happily denounce her British passport, but then again she did have dual Swiss citizenship. Oh, how the righteous middle classes can afford their virtue signalling.

When charities, like businesses, become too big, they take on the label of the global elite. They become untouchable but sit at the top seats in Davos, in the EU and in the UN. They influence governments, they campaign to shame us into giving on TV, on the phone and in the streets.

Now they’ve been rumbled, despite the elites covering it up. At a time when the UK public is at its rebellious best and many are disgusted at our current foreign aid budget, now is the time to review our aid budget, the countries receiving aid and the people trusted with delivering its projects.

As we Brexit, we should be offering free trade with poorer nations that the EU keeps in poverty. Instead of aid, we should offer trade, and use a large percentage to help our own poor, disadvantaged, veterans, elderly and disabled.

Open Border Activist Flees Merkel’s Germany: Moves to Poland

in World News by

Piotr Włoczyk of Do Rzeczy talks to Rebecca Sommer, a former German activist for organisation dealing with the assistance of ‘refugees’.

After demanding others welcome illegal immigrants, open borders activist Sommer has now admitted she was wrong. She is fleeing to Poland to escape the multiculturalist disaster.

Piotr Włoczyk: Not so long ago you were a fervent advocate of Germany’s immigration policy. You even founded an association helping ‘refugees’ from Muslim countries. How should Poland react to Brussels pressure on this matter?

Rebecca Sommer: I will answer in this way: I know Germans who are going to Poland because they have had enough of what is happening in Germany.

Piotr Włoczyk: Germans fleeing to Poland? Please do not be offended, but it just sounds unreal.

Rebecca Sommer: I know people did that. If Poland and Hungary remain on their own in this matter, then you will become countries to which some Germans or French will flee. You will even become islands of stability in Europe.

Open-Border Loving Politician Found Beheaded in Africa

in World News by

Very few people have heard the name Zaida Catalan. She was a Swedish politician, who promoted open borders. Many in the West have a romanticised notion of Africa, and it is not rare for European travellers to be raped, even murdered.

Catalan was beheaded in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, along with American Michael Sharp, a United Nations worker, as part of the U.N. peacekeeping mission to the troubled African nation.

The case has been largely kept in obscurity — likely because it didn’t fulfil the globalist media’s push for open borders. Rather, it reinforced the right-wing argument that cultural values vary, and hence that migration must be low to allow for assimilation.

Catalan was a member of the Green party, whose 2013 platform states, “We want to see Europe as a part of a world of democracies, where people move freely over borders, and where people and countries trade and cooperate with each other.” This policy of relaxed borders has allowed jihadis into Europe.

On March 12, 2017, Catalan and Sharp were kidnapped along with four Congolese in the disputed province of Kasai. The BBC reports that the two had been dispatched to the region “to investigate reports of abuses after local rebels took up arms.”

On March 27, their bodies were found. Sharp’s father, John Sharp, posted on Facebook, “We have been informed that two Caucasian bodies have been found in shallow graves in the search area, one male and one female.”

IRA Sympathiser Corybn gets the Adams Seal of Approval

in Anglophobia / Marxism/World News by

Much criticism has been aimed at Jeremy Corbyn as the Labour leader cannot hide from his past as sympathiser of the IRA, but today the link was well and truly cemented as Gerry Adams endorsed him.

The uncomfortable thumbs up of approval came from the man accused of ordering the murder and secret burial of Jean McConville in 1972 and other awful acts, by calling Mr Corybn an outstanding politician. Adams was speaking to Andrew Marr as he enters his final week as president of the party he has led for almost 35 years.

Corbyn has given interviews in which he has been challenged to condemn the IRA’s campaign of violence unequivocally – without equating it to other parties involved in the conflict – and has declined to do so.

It’s no secret that the Labour leader has long supported the end of British rule in Ulster, and that he met the leaders of Sinn Fein and other Republicans in the 1980s and 1990s, when the Provisional IRA was still bombing and shooting people.

Stuck between a rock and a hard place, Corybn continues to stay silent on the matter as he loses the respect and faith of many of the party faithful.  This will come as a much unwanted distraction for Labour and many in the party who have spoken of not renewing their membership, citing reasons such as the u-turn on Brexit and not pledging to tighten immigration. Labour have not represented the working class in decades.

Bloody rioting and gunshots as ‘hundreds’ of FAKE refugees STORM Calais port

in Brexit/World News by

After a fight broke out amongst gangs of Afghan and Eritrean fake refugees queuing for food, rioting spread from Boulevard des Justes near the city centre of Calais.

Violent gangs wielding rocks, knives, sticks and iron bars were reportedly involved in running battles through the city – with at least 200 people involved. People smugglers are suspected to have been involved.

Fighting began at around 3.30pm, before dying down shortly before 6pm.

The four fake refugees who were shot are said to be in a life-threatening condition and have been taken to hospital.

France’s interior minister Gerard Collomb said he was on the way to the port town to deal with the emergency. That’s probably once he finds a white bedsheet to wave!

Many fake refugees travel to Calais; under UN definition, a refugee is one fleeing a war or natural disaster in a neighbouring country. None of these people invading France, in violation of immigration laws, have any right to enter Britain.

They know that the UK’s welfare state is easy to abuse; it offers free flats to those claiming asylum, while British war veterans sleep rough on the street.

The Donald keeps his “America-First!” pledge.

in World News by

Donald J. Trump is a man of his word. Even the most biased, moaning and stubborn of Democrats are starting to comprehend that the “bombastic-billionaire” President has truly been keeping most of his promises. Whether one likes it or not, both Democrats and Republicans need to be appreciative of the fact that it is the first time in a while that America is governed by a President who actually delivers.

The Democrats are frightened at this moment in time. Most of them are shaking as they sit around in their up-market villas in Coral Gables, Greenwich, or Palm Beach, waiting for Trump to possibly make a mistake in foreign policy, or for any miscalculation which would weaken his position and, in the worst case scenario, lead to impeachment. This hasn’t happened yet, the Russian investigation has not revealed enough if anything at all. Trump has demonstrated tremendous ability especially when it comes to domestic policies. The administration has stuck to the “America-First” program. Economic Bannon-style nationalism is what the American people asked for when they voted in November 2016.

If one decides to look at the beginning of  Trump’s term objectively, it is fairly simple to point out where and how the President has effectively put America First. The renegotiation of NAFTA, the pulling out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal and the Paris Climate Accord are all parts of the same deal. These actions are meant to reinstate an American monopoly on capital. It is clear that with Trump at its lead the USA will not accept putting its national interests second in line. Trump pushed for economic growth focusing on the stock market and, among other things, Americans now find themselves with a domestic product that expanded at a rate of 3.3%. He is bound to give the American market system a good shake.

Trump’s most recent development has been to impose high tariffs on imported machinery such as solar panels and washing machines originating from China and South Korea. This of course, has led to great panic worldwide, especially among the most savage of “free-trade gurus” and miscellaneous scaremongers who argue this will lead to a trade war with China and other nations. However, objectively speaking, what the tariffs will do is give the USA an opportunity to create more manufacturing jobs. It is very likely that now this type of specialised machinery will be finally produced in America, ultimately benefiting the nation as a whole.

“America-First” is not purely about economics though. Radical but efficient immigration policies such as imposing a ban on people traveling from seven countries on the Islamist terror watchlist, that awkwardly for the Democrats, Obama drew up, has made Americans feel secure again in their communities giving people an opportunity to have a say in what type of future they want for their children and in what direction they want their nation to go. America-First is about putting Americans first, more importantly it is about making Americans feel second to none.

Trump says he doesn’t “want to be involved with” Britain First

in World News by

Donald Trump says he doesn’t “want to be involved with” Britain First. Speaking to Piers Morgan on Thursday, Trump denied he had been promoting the controversial group as an organisation.

“I don’t know who they are, I know nothing about them, so I wouldn’t be doing that,” he said. “I am the least racist person that anyone is going to meet. Certainly I wasn’t endorsing anybody … It was done because I am a big believer in fighting radical Islamic terror. It was a big story where you are — but it was not where I am. So you’re telling me something.”

Donald Trump says he doesn't "want to be involved with" Britain First.

Posted by Make Britain Great Again on Friday, 26 January 2018

Trump stressed he hadn’t intended to upset the British public. “I’m somebody that loves Britain, loves the U.K., I love Scotland — one of the biggest problems I have with winning [the presidency] is I won’t be able to get back there so often,” he said. “I would be there a lot. Very special people, very special place. I didn’t want to cause any difficulty with your country.”

“If you’re telling me they are horrible racist people, I will certainly apologize if you’d like me to do that,” Trump told ITV Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan. “I know nothing about these people.”

France EXPLODES into RIOTS because chocolate prices low

in World News by

Riots have erupted in French supermarkets, with violent scenes as shoppers fought each other to grab the bargain discounted Nutella. Barely a word against the corrupt EU, but civil unrest to save £2 on choccy.

The Intermarché chain of supermarkets offered a whopping 70% discount on Nutella, bringing the price down from €4.50 (£3.90) to €1.40.

France, rather lazy when it comes to protesting against Merkel, is incredibly volatile over choccy prices. Police were called when people began fighting and pushing one another.

“They are like animals. A woman had her hair pulled, an elderly lady took a box on her head, another had a bloody hand,” one customer told French media.

A member of staff at one Intermarché shop in central France told the regional newspaper Le Progrès: “We were trying to get in between the customers but they were pushing us.”

GSG9: Germany’s elite anti-terror police squad to expand

in World News by

Germany’s elite police squad GSG 9, which deals with terrorist attacks, is to become significantly larger and will set up a second base in Berlin.

GSG 9 commander Jérome Fuchs stated, “If you look at comparable terrorist situations across Europe, then it was often capital cities that were affected,” Fuchs told the station. “It is essential that we are better prepared in the capital. Our aim is clear: GSG 9 needs to be capable of quicker reactions in the capital.”

GSG9 was established in reaction to the kidnapping and murder of Israeli athletes by Palestinian terrorists at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. The police’s handling of the situation was fiercely criticised.

Since then, the force has carried out around 1,900 missions, most famously the successful 1977 operation in Mogadishu, Somalia in which officers stormed a Lufthansa flight that had been hijacked by Palestinian terrorists and safely released all 86 hostages.

Rolf Tophoven, the veteran counter-terrorism expert who wrote the first book on GSG 9 in 1977, said the move to Berlin was “overdue.” “It’s very important to have the strong presence of an anti-terror unit in the capital,” he told DW.

“According to the German security forces, the terrorist situation has not become less dangerous, despite the military defeat of ‘Islamic State’ — on the contrary it could have become more dangerous,” he added. “The other point is that a few things are coming to a head in organised crime, and for that it is important to have a powerful unit.”

Tophoven estimates that the GSG 9 will be looking to deploy over 100 new officers in Berlin, though other anti-terror measures have also been taken. Over the last year the federal police has set up new on-call reserve units across the country to provide a first-response to terrorist attacks — whereas the GSG 9 performs planned operations.

Right-wing PragerU SUES YouTube for CENSORING their videos

in Tech/World News by

PragerU, a conservative educational site, is suing Google and its subsidiary YouTube, accusing the video site of censoring its online videos because of their political leanings.

In a statement sent out to its subscribers, PragerU said:

“YouTube has chosen repeatedly to restrict some of our videos for violating their ‘Community Guidelines.’ Those guidelines are meant to protect users against viewing sexual content, violent or graphic content, and hate speech.

“As a PragerU viewer, you know as well as I do that our videos contain nothing even remotely close to any of these categories.

“To date, YouTube has restricted nearly 40 PragerU videos, addressing topics ranging from religion and freedom of speech to the history of the Korean War.”

More than a year ago, PragerU filed a complaint with YouTube, hoping that the deletion of the videos was an innocent mistake.

Yet they were told by YouTube that after reviewing the videos they determined that they were indeed “not appropriate for a younger audience.”

The statement continues: “Think about the millions of actually inappropriate videos on YouTube and then ask yourself, ‘Why is our content restricted?’

“Unfortunately, the answer is rather obvious, isn’t it?  YouTube has restricted PragerU videos for only one reason: Ideological discrimination.”

Before taking legal action, PragerU did attempt to take a more diplomatic approach, but were completely ignored by YouTube. On the one-year anniversary of Google blocking their content, PragerU renewed their complaints to YouTube and re-circulated an online petition urging Google to change course, all to no avail.

Politically motivated censorship is exactly what Google/YouTube, Facebook and Twitter do. YouTube are frequently demonetising videos MBGA News, deleting videos, channels and comments, while Facebook are ghosting comments on our pages and so on. This happens both in the US and other nations.

They don’t want people to express their anger and concerns about their nation’s problems and calling out failed politicians – instead they censor the people.

Head of Breitbart News SLAMMED By Trump And DROPPED By Major Donor

in World News by

In a lengthy statement, Trump lambasted Stephen Bannon, his former campaign manager and chief strategist, who is the executive chairman of Breitbart News. “Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency,” the statement said.

The Washington Post claims Trump said Bannon ‘not only lost his job, he lost his mind’ as the president’s lawyers sent a cease-and-desist letter. “Steve was a staffer who worked for me after I had already won the nomination by defeating 17 candidates, often described as the most talented field ever assembled in the Republican party.”

It is claimed such relates to a quote of Bannon in a new book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” by Michael Wolff. The Breitbart chief is quoted as calling a meeting by Trump’s eldest son and son-in-law Jared Kushner “treasonous” and “unpatriotic.”

Late Wednesday, lawyers for Trump sent a cease-and-desist letter to Bannon, arguing he violated the employment agreement he signed with the Trump Organization in numerous ways and also it is alleged that he defamed the president.

“You have breached the Agreement by, among other things, communicating with author Michael Wolff about Mr. Trump, his family members, and the Company, disclosing Confidential Information to Mr. Wolff, and making disparaging statements and in some cases outright defamatory statements to Mr. Wolff about Mr. Trump, his family members, and the Company,” read the letter from lawyer Charles Harder.

The head of Breitbart has reportedly lost the support of billionaire backer Rebekah Mercer after he suggested he might run for president himself, and he told several other major conservative donors that he would be able to count on the Mercers’ financial support.

The person said Mercer now does not plan to financially support Bannon’s future projects — and that she was frustrated by his promotion of Roy Moore in Alabama. Trump initially backed the incumbent Sen. Luther Strange, but the Breitbart head continued to campaign for Moore after the nominee was accused by multiple women of sexual assault and sexual misconduct with teenage girls.

Meanwhile, Robert Mercer had previously sold off his stakes in Bannon-run Breitbart News to his daughter, but now she has shunned its chief.

“Now that he is on his own, Steve is learning that winning isn’t as easy as I make it look. Steve had very little to do with our historic victory, which was delivered by the forgotten men and women of this country,” Trump said.

The tragedies British and European detainees face in foreign lands

in Islamism/World News by
Laura Plummer and her husband

If there is one thing we learnt with certainty by the conclusion of the year, it is that travelling to a country where Sharia law is the rule of the land can be exceptionally risky for anyone of European descent or at least anyone travelling from the European continent. Unfortunately, this includes our fellow Britons.

In the past few months, there have been at least three striking cases of British citizens withheld as detainees in nations where Sharia law is applied. The tragedy suffered by British journalist Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, 40, which everyone has read about in The Times or the Daily Telegraph, is only one of the many cases of British citizens being held as political prisoners in foreign lands. Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who has worked for several media organisations in Britain, has been incoherently and unjustly accused of “attempting to topple the Iranian regime”.

Another ambiguous case is that of Laura Plummer, 33 (pictured above), who risks ten years imprisonment in Egypt merely for having brought a high dose of Tramadol (painkillers) to her ill husband, who resided in a country that is clearly inclined to the use of anti-democratic and authoritarian measures. Let us not forget that Egypt is a location where to this day vicious terror attacks against Christians occur with frequency.

However, what is truly shocking is that similar cases to those mentioned above do not only happen in strictly traditionalist and reactionary Sharia states such as Iran, Egypt or even Libya but have also occurred in the ‘westernised’ and ‘capitalist’ United Arab Emirates.

A young British woman named Asa Hutchinson, 21, may indeed face prosecution in Dubai. The reasons for her arrest in November were unclear, and the investigation was most likely conducted in a superficial manner. The British youngster has been accused of disturbing a man sleeping in the lobby of a hotel room while taking pictures of him with her friends. As fictitious as the story may sound, according to UAE law the accusation is serious enough to have her locked up in a local prison after having manipulated her into signing concession papers written in Arabic.

Tragic incidents involving young British citizens are not new to Sharia states. Britain still hasn’t healed after the homicide of diplomat Rebecca Dykes, 30, in Beirut, Lebanon. Moreover, the British are not the only ones to have suffered tragic fates in certain countries. The murder of the Italian former Cambridge student Giulio Regeni, carried out by Egyptian police authorities in Cairo and the unfortunate events of several French travellers throughout the year have marked a new low in diplomatic relations between European countries and Sharia states.

Something needs to be done, justice needs to be done.

BREAKING NEWS: Ten injured as bomb rips through St Petersburg

in World News by

Ten people have been injured after an explosion ripped through a supermarket in the Russian city of St Petersburg on Wednesday evening.

Four people were hospitalised and six others were evaluated at the scene after an explosion at the Perekrestok market in St Petersburg. No one was killed.

St Petersburg’s branch of the Emergencies Ministry said that a device containing 200 grams of explosives went off on Wednesday at a storage area for customers’ bags. Pictured above, emergency responders at the scene.

No one has claimed responsibility for the explosion at the market in the city’s northwest Kalininsky district.

The Investigative Committee has sent experts to look into the explosion, and a criminal case was launched on the grounds of attempted mass murder.

Black Republican Senator EVISCERATES HuffPuff Writer for Playing Race Card

in Anglophobia / Marxism/World News by

The Republican senator Tim Scott is a massive thorn in the side of the liberal movement in the USA, if not worldwide. It is rather inconvenient for them that a black senator so passionately backs Trump, the man they wish to demonise as “racist”.

In fury, libtarded Huffington Post contributor Andy Ostroy called the South Carolina senator Scott a “manipulated prop” on Wednesday, as Scott stood proudly by Trump at the passing of the historic tax bill.

The tweet Ostroy deleted – in fact, he deleted his WHOLE account

Yes, Trump was lowering tax, something the left hate, being in the wrong, they never seek fact-based intellectual debate. Instead, they always seek to avoid such by a claim to the moral high ground, for example, to claim to be the force of diversity and tolerance, which lambasting and silencing the right as “racist” – something Scott’s presence didn’t allow.

Ostroy’s phrase “manipulated prop” insinuates Scott is a token black man placed at Trump’s side for diversity, and thus is an insult to Scott, implying he’s incapable of forming and standing by his own convictions. Liberals are vile racists who only see skin colour.

Scott is no “prop”, but actually helped write the tax bill for the past year.

“Uh probably because I helped write the bill for the past year, have multiple provisions included, got multiple Senators on board over the last week and have worked on tax reform my entire time in Congress. But if you’d rather just see my skin color, pls feel free,” Tim Scott responded.

In response, Ostroy DELETED his whole Twitter account.

Speech by Trump, with Scott by his side:

UK plans new defence treaty with Poland

in Brexit/World News by

Brexit will strengthen not weaken the UK’s ties with Poland, Theresa May is to insist on a visit to Warsaw – where she will announce plans for enhanced defence and security co-operation.

Poland will still “matter greatly” to the UK after it leaves the EU, she will say, citing shared history and values.

A proposed new defence treaty will be a “powerful symbol” of co-operation, the PM will tell her Polish counterpart.

“Our partnership is broad, vibrant and diverse and we both share a steadfast commitment to Europe’s security and defense,” the British PM is expected to say, according to the BBC.

This builds on the deployment of British troops to Poland under Enhanced Forward Presence, agreed at the last UK-Poland summit held in London in November 2016.

Ahead of the trip, Mrs May said: “The bilateral defence treaty we are signing today is a powerful symbol of our continued close cooperation.”

“I am determined that Brexit will not weaken our relationship with Poland. Rather, it will serve as a catalyst to strengthen it.”

Possible Terror Attack in Australia: 14 Injured

in Islamism/World News by

Fourteen people have been injured in Melbourne, with several in a critical condition after a car intentionally drove into a crowd of shoppers ‘sending bodies flying everywhere’ according to witnesses.

Police have said it was a deliberate act but said it was too early to say whether it was terrorist-related. The driver and another man have been detained.

Witness Jim Stoupas, told the press: “It just barrelled through a completely full intersection of pedestrians. There was no attempt to brake, no attempt to swerve.”

He added: “I saw probably five to eight people on the ground with people swarming around them [to help]. Within a minute, I think, there were police on site, so it was very, very speedy.”

Victoria Ambulance said in a statement that a child of pre-school age with serious head injuries was among those taken to hospital.

Another witness. Vince Harris was nearby in the immediate aftermath of the crash.

He was on the scene from about two minutes after the car collided and could see the cracked windscreen and Good Samaritans trying to save injured pedestrians.

‘I was here when the other one (the Bourke Street tragedy) happened …. you get desensitised.’ he shockingly claimed.

The carnage comes almost a year after six people were killed and 30 injured when a car ploughed through the Bourke Street Mall in January.

The driver, Dimitrious Gargasoulas, was charged with six counts of murder after he allegedly used a maroon Holden Commodore sedan to run down shoppers during the lunch break.

A child and two adults were among those who died following the attack as well as a three-month-old baby boy.

City authorities installed concrete blocks in various locations – including on Flinders Street – hoping to prevent vehicle-based attacks.

Poland rejects fake refugees; EU triggers ‘nuclear option’, probably sanctions to follow

in Brexit/World News by

The European Union has triggered Article 7 of the EU treaty, branded the “nuclear option,” against Poland on Wednesday.

The procedure has been triggered for the first time since the foundation of the EU bloc, and could result in sanctions targeting Warsaw. The EU says Poland has violated democratic values with proposed judiciary reform.

On Wednesday, following the Article 7 announcement, the spokeswoman for the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party said that the EU’s actions could be related to Warsaw’s opposition to accepting fake refugees, according to Reuters.

Poland and the EU have also clashed over migration, as Warsaw has refused to accept migrants as part of a quota system devised during the European refugee crisis. Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo said in November that the decision has resulted in her country being seen as “a country free of terrorism.”

Polish Justice Minister Zbigniew Ziobro told Polish state news agency PAP that he is puzzled over the “politically motivated” decision, stressing Warsaw strictly adheres to EU laws.

It comes amid an ongoing feud between Brussels and Warsaw. The EU and Poland’s Euroskeptic and socially conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party have been engaged in ongoing disputes since the party came to power in late 2015. The PiS has been urging changes to the Polish judiciary and other institutions, citing the need for a so-called moral renewal of the country.

Earlier this year, protests erupted over the efforts to change the judiciary system. Opposition parties, rights groups, judges’ lobbies, the Council of Europe, the EU Commission, and European countries including Germany and France also said the proposed changes would erode judicial independence by bringing the courts under the direct control of the government.

Women’s March leader Sarsour enabled sexual assault, says her former staff

in World News by

The inspiration behind the Women’s March on DC, Linda Sarsour, has been accused of enabling the alleged sexual assault and harassment of a woman who worked for the feminist activist, according to the victim and two sources directly familiar with the matter.

Sarsour is the former executive director at the Arab American Association of New York. According to a report in the Daily Caller Sarsour reportedly threatened and body-shamed a former employee for bringing up allegations of sexual misconduct from within the organisation.

Asmi Fathelbab, the former employee, noted that groping and unwanted touching were among the allegations broached with Sarsour.

Fathelbab said: “He would sneak up on me during times when no one was around, he would touch me, you could hear me scream at the top of my lungs. He would pin me against the wall and rub his crotch on me.”

According to Fathelbab, management dismissed the allegations because the alleged perpetrator — a man who lived in the building that housed the association’s offices — was a “good Muslim” who was “always at the Mosque.”

“[Sarsour] oversaw an environment unsafe and abusive to women,” Fathelbab told The Daily Caller. “Women who put [Sarsour] on a pedestal for women’s rights and empowerment deserve to know how she really treats us.”

Fathelbab added that she was “dismissed by Sarsour outright.”

“She called me a liar because ‘Something like this didn’t happen to women who looked like me,’” Fathelbab said. “How dare I interrupt her TV news interview in the other room with my ‘lies.’”

Sarsour also threatened legal action against Fathelabab if she went public with the story.

“[Sarsour] told me I’d never work in NYC ever again for as long as she lived,” Fathelbab reported. “She’s kept her word. She had me fired from other jobs when she found out where I worked. She has kept me from obtaining any sort of steady employment for almost a decade.”

Fathelbab concluded, “Just wait until more people start to talk. Sarsour is no champion of women. She is an abuser of them.”

Two people who knew Fathelbab during her time at the Arab American Association spoke with TheDC on condition of anonymity. Both corroborate her story, recalling that she would return “emotionally distressed and in a panic” from work, often describing it as an “unsafe” work environment.

Sarsour claims to support Sharia law, which immediately discredits her claim to be a supporter of feminism and womens’ rights, as we have seen that Sharia law is indeed discriminatory against women even in its mildest forms.

Austria’s “Islam has no place in Europe” Freedom Party sworn in to power 

in Islamism/World News by

Austria’s populist Freedom Party has been sworn in to power amid a heavy police presence as alt-left anti-democratic thugs waved ‘No Nazi pigs’ signs in Vienna this morning.

The party’s coalition with the conservative People’s Party (OeVP) was agreed on Friday along with pledges to stop illegal immigration and resist EU centralisation.

It will be led by Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, who took over the OeVP in May and moved it to the right, securing his party first place in October elections. At 31, Kurz will be the world’s youngest leader.

At Kurz’s side for the investiture by Austria’s president in the Hapsburg dynasty’s imperial palace in Vienna was FPOe chief Heinz-Christian Strache, 48, now vice-chancellor, and FPOe general secretary Herbert Kickl, the new interior minister.

Strache has said Islam ‘has no place in Europe’ and last year called German Chancellor Angela Merkel ‘the most dangerous woman in Europe’ for her open-door refugee policy.

On Sunday, Strache trumpeted to his 750,000 followers on Facebook that the new government would slash social benefits for asylum-seekers.

‘It will no longer happen that migrants who have never worked here a single day or paid anything into the social system will get thousands of euros in welfare!’ he said in a post that has gained 9,000 ‘likes’.

More than 2,000 alt-left fascist anti-democratic thugs took part in demonstrations this morning, brandishing placards such as ‘refugees welcome’ and ‘Nazis out’ and ‘No Nazi pigs’.

Trump STOPS terrorists planning attack on Russia

in Islamism/World News by

The Russian President Vladimir Putin has thanked his US counterpart Donald Trump for help in preventing a terrorist attack in St. Petersburg.

The CIA tip-off allowed Russia’s top domestic security agency, the FSB, to track down and arrest a group of suspects who were planning to bomb the city’s Kazan Cathedral and other crowded sites, the Kremlin said.

The White House later said in a statement: “President Trump appreciated the call and told President Putin that he and the entire United States intelligence community were pleased to have helped save so many lives.” The White House also confirmed that US intelligence agencies provided Russia with information “concerning a major terror plot in St. Petersburg.”

The White House did not disclose details about the plot itself, but said the attack “could have killed large numbers of people”.

Russia’s Federal Security Service, or FSB, announced on Friday that seven suspected followers of the Islamic State group had been arrested for allegedly planning to carry out terror attacks in St Petersburg on December 16.

The agency said the suspects were plotting a suicide bombing in a church and a series of other explosions in the city’s busiest areas on IS orders.

It said a search of a St Petersburg apartment found explosives, automatic weapons and extremist literature.

Russian news reports said the Kazan Cathedral was the prime target.

The White House seized on the foiled plot as a sign of what Moscow and Washington could do if they cooperate.

After lambasting Trump over BF, media silent when Lineker retweets anti-Israel activist

in Anglophobia / Marxism/World News by

When Donald Trump retweeted three videos posted by controversial group Britain First, the media was in hysterics, desperate to label him a bigot, even though a tweet is not an endorsement. However, it displays, as always, shocking double standards, remaining quiet when Gary Lineker, the Match of the Day presenter, shared a clip posted by Ben White, a virulent critic of Israel.

One social media user described the fact that Mr Lineker had retweeted Mr White’s post as “sickening”. Others accused the former Tottenham Hotspur striker of lacking “wisdom” and urged him to “find out the facts”.

Mr Lineker responded by saying he was unfamiliar with Mr White. “Don’t know the fella,” he tweeted. “As far as I’m concerned I’m retweeting a video of kids being put in a cage. Nothing makes that right.”

The Sussex Friends of Israel group responded by saying that “If Trump had said about Britain First ‘I didn’t know the fellas,’ would that have made his posting of their videos ok?”

Lieutenant Colonel Peter Lerner, the former spokesperson for the IDF, tweeted: “Sorry, Gary, you’ve completely missed the point. When kids throw stones they are a public menace. They need to be stopped. Yes, the video is unpleasant but it conveniently shares only a glimpse of what happened, the aftermath of their actions. You should be wiser than this.”

Tides Foundation Spent Millions To Defeat Canadian Conservatives

in World News by

While the media is in hysterics, cooking up fake news about Russia influencing the Brexit vote and Trump’s campaign, they are rather quiet about a report from Elections Canada, which claims “electoral outcomes were influenced” by left-wing US lobbyists — dominated by the Tides Foundation.

The report entitled Elections Canada Complaint Regarding Foreign Influence, and obtained in part by the Calgary Herald, claims the left-wing US lobbyists poured millions of dollars into the 2015 Canadian federal election with the objective of defeating former Prime Minister Stephen Harper. The Liberals under the leader Justin Trudeau won that election.

The number of third parties registered during the 2015 federal election stood at 114 — more than double the 55 that existed for the 2011 election. Those 114 groups spent $6 million affecting the election, and at least $1.5 million of that came from the Tides Foundation — whose opposition to Canadian petroleum exploration, especially in the Alberta oil sands, would benefit Saudi Arabia (who wouldn’t want the oil competition).

The report is a consequence of a complaint from a group called Canada Decides, which charged “the outcome of the 2015 election was skewed by money from wealthy foreigners.” It specifically cites former Calgary Member of Parliament (MP) Joan Crockatt, who says she was one of 29 Conservative MPs targeted by an group called Leadnow through its 2015 Vote Together campaign. Leadnow is alleged to be awash in foreign money.

Mount Royal University political science professor Duane Bratt told Postmedia that these concerns raised by Elections Canada should worry Canadians. “The whole concept and idea of foreign influence in an election is an important issue and is something that Canadians should not tolerate,” Bratt said Monday.

The Canada Elections Act states: “No person who does not reside in Canada shall, during an election period, in any way induce electors to vote or refrain from voting or vote or refrain from voting for a particular candidate” unless the person is a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident.

Sweden: Fake refugees responsible for 300% increase in HIV cases

in Brexit/World News by

The number of HIV-related illness in Sweden has risen sharply from 1,684 in 2006 to 6,273 in 2016. That’s an increase of almost 300%.

According to Anders Tegnell of the Public Health Authority, this surge can be explained by the intake of fake refugees from countries where HIV is a major problem.

Publicly available health figures in Sweden show that the number of new cases was relatively constant from the late 1980s through the early 21st century. Since then there was a steep increase.

“There are more and more people living with HIV, because you no longer die of AIDS,” Tegnell said.

Pamela Geller says, “What did you think would be the state of public health in the new post-hijrah Sweden? With New Year’s Eve mass rapes, music festivals sex attacks, women attacked in open markets, and more, it was inevitable that Sweden would become a cesspool of sexually transmitted diseases and all the attendant misery.”

“With Swedish authorities doing nothing to stop the rape jihad, the HIV rate is only going to go higher, and higher, and higher. Before too long, Sweden’s HIV rate will resemble that of the African states from which these Muslim migrants have come. Its crime rate will resemble theirs as well, but after that will follow the peace of sharia, and women who are raped will simply be honor-murdered. The HIV rate will go down then.”

84 Per Cent of Child “Refugees” to Sweden Are Adults

in World News by

After a social worker named Alexandra Mezher was killed by a Somalian in a asylum centre, and he was found to be an adult, tests of age were introduced.

To ascertain the age of child “refugees”, between mid-March and late October, the Swedish government had Rättsmedicinalverket (the National Board of Forensic Medicine) conduct 7,858 age assessments.

The test results show what many expected: they are adults!

84% (6,628) were likely 18 or even older, as even the BBC admitted.

Germany also expresses concerns regards the age of child “refugees”.

Man gets 15 YEARS in prison for leaving bacon at mosque

in World News by

A man who vandalized a Florida mosque in January 2016 and left a raw slab of bacon on its doorstep was sentenced to 15 years in prison on a hate crime conviction. Such will be followed by 15 years of probation.

Michael Wolfe, 37, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to criminal mischief to a place of worship in a case considered a felony hate crime, said Todd Brown, spokesman for Florida’s 18th Judicial District, which includes Brevard and Seminole counties.

Surveillance video after the 2016 incident showed a man with a shaved head and camouflage clothing breaking windows, cameras and lights with a machete at the mosque in Titusville, Florida, near Cape Canaveral.

The Daily Mail reports that the Florida CAIR branch agreed with prosecutors and defense attorneys in determining Wolfe’s sentence. A strange choice of organisation to quote, considering that Republican Josh Mandel, who is also Ohio treasurer, claimed that the Council on America-Islamic Relations (CAIR) “is Hamas”.

Google CENSORS migrant crisis video by Polish government

in Tech/World News by

YouTube has ‘quarantined’ a hard-hitting video on Europe’s migrant crisis released by Poland’s conservative government, as part the platform’s crackdown on “hate speech and violent extremism”.

The Polish Ministry of Interior and Administration’s video has been placed in a controversial limited state designed by YouTube to restrict access to videos it says contain “supremacist” or “extremist” content, but which don’t actually break any of the platform’s rules. Videos placed in this limited state are unsearchable, impossible to embed on other sites, and removed from users’ recommended videos lists.

The only way to reach such ‘quarantined’ content is by clicking a direct link to the video in question. Even then, viewers are warned that the “content is inappropriate or offensive”, and are asked to click a button confirming this before they are allowed to watch the video.

The video’s description reads –

“The PiS (Law & Justice) government withdrew from the harmful decision of the PO-PSL government to bring immigrants from the Middle East and North Africa to Poland. We were the first to say that not every immigrant is a refugee, and only a few flee from war and terror. Two years after the Polish government’s opposition to the admission of illegal immigrants, EU leaders are beginning to understand the absurd policy of compulsory relocation of refugees.”

This is the restricted video (which has English subtitles):

This is very concerning from a freedom of speech perspective, especially as YouTube is by far the largest video sharing site online. It is very difficult for smaller rivals to compete – just last week VidMe announced that it will be closing down and user uploads have already been disabled.

We cannot allow giant corporations to become the arbiters of free expression and communication. That leads directly to tyranny. One potential solution could be the use of decentralised peer-to-peer video sharing sites, where it would be much harder for a central authority to censor or restrict content.

Palestinian flag man yelling ‘Allahu Akbar’ smashes Jewish restaurant’s windows

in World News by

A kosher restaurant in Amsterdam was attacked by a man waving a Palestinian flag just hours after Donald Trump’s announcement recognising Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city.

Footage broadcast by Dutch local TV station AT5 shows the man, who also appears to be wearing a Palestinian keffiyeh head covering, using a stick to strike the restaurant’s window.

He was seen aiming a series of kicks to smash his way through the glass door before briefly disappearing inside and emerging moments afterwards carrying an Israeli flag.

Judge says SORRY as he gives £110,000 payout to refugee jailed twice for sex attacks

in World News by

A migrant jailed twice for sex attacks has won £110,000 compensation for being locked up too long – after his own country refused to take him back.

The judge who awarded the money admitted he ‘wholeheartedly’ agreed that many would think it was the victims of 28-year-old Aliou Bah who deserved large payouts instead.

Bah, from Guinea, had been imprisoned twice for serious assaults – including an attack on a 16-year-old girl – and placed on the sex offenders’ register.

But in a ruling revealed yesterday, a court decided that the Government had held him unlawfully for 21 months when there was no reasonable prospect of deporting him to West Africa.

Moves to throw him out were blocked by immigration officials in his homeland who refused to process his travel documents.

Electoral Commission launches investigation into allegations of Russian interference in UK votes

in Brexit/World News by

The Electoral Commission has launched an investigation into allegations of Russian interference in last year’s Brexit referendum and the 2017 general election.

“It would be naive to assume that what we know happened in the US and France around their elections did not and could not happen here,” Sir John Holmes, the head of the Electoral Commission told BBC Today.

“And there has been evidence coming from the US inquiry that some of that activity was happening.

“What we have done is asked companies like Twitter, Google and Facebook to tell us what was happening here in the same way they did in the US.”

That’s a nice way to deflect attention away from the fact the establishment LOST badly despite all the lies and pro-EU propaganda from the government during the referendum campaign. Come to think of it, when is someone going to investigate all those lies?

While you’re at it, you could look at double voting by students due to the complete absence of identity checks, and the scourge of the first-past the post (FPTP) voting system which blocks any real change and protects the major incumbent parties.

But no, predictably the problem is ‘Russian meddling’.

The most weak and spineless Prime Minister we have ever had?

in Brexit/World News by

Similar to Cameron’s disastrous attempts to renegotiate a deal with the EU, today we saw another pathetic attempt by a weak leader who is coming back to the UK with her tail between her legs.

There are whispers that the UK was prepared to accept that Northern Ireland could remain in the EU’s customs union and single market in all but name. Theresa May’s capitulation on the Irish border has seen her yet again bullied by the EU dictatorship that has opened a can of worms.

Following reports that Northern Ireland could regain “regulatory alignment”, Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon stated that there is “surely no good practical reason” that Scotland could not do the same. Additionally London Mayor Sadiq Khan has also suggested that there could be “huge ramifications” and would look to seek a similar deal. This is a colossal error – May is threatening the United Kingdom’s cohesion in a time where unity is much sought after but lacking.

Many argue that May was never the right candidate to lead the negotiations given she was a Remain campaigner and never wanted to leave: it shows. She appears to have worked to undermine and frustrate Brexit from the start. She delayed Article 50 for months, has not started any trade deals with other countries, upset our greatest ally in the United States and wants to pay a £50bn bill to the EU that has no legal standing. One could argue that she is working on a deal so bad that it will only encourage calls to remain – that could be her ultimate goal.

There is a growing rumbling of discontent from the 17.4 million mainly silent Brexiteers and a high feeling of betrayal where nothing but a hard Brexit and rejecting of a “divorce’ payment will be satisfactory. The British lion has indeed been awakened.

Politicians often forget that they are elected to serve us and not the other way round. Time is running short for Theresa to make her mark in history for positive reasons, not for the most weak and spineless Prime Minister the country has ever had.

Trump visit to Britain: date announced

in Anglophobia / Marxism/World News by

Donald Trump will visit the UK on February 26 and 27.

The long-proposed trip, which will go ahead despite this week’s Twitter spat with Prime Minister Theresa May.

The sources said the trip had been in Mrs May’s diary for 10 days already – despite concerns raised by this week’s drama.

The visit is expected to be timed to coincide with the opening of the new American embassy in London.

Lefty activists are already preparing to protest against the democratically elected leader of the USA. Labour MP David Lammy said: “Save the date, he’s going to be met by the biggest protest this country has ever seen.”

Owen Jones has strongly objected to a visit by a US President, promising a mass protest. There was no such uproar over visits by King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia – where gays are murdered – or Chinese President Xi Jinping – where workers are treated like animals. The left was not furious when Robert Mugabe visited Britain, even after his militia murdered British citizens.

Luke Nash-Jones, Director of the People’s Charter Foundation says, “Owen Jones is a hypocrite – he was rather silent when Hamza Sodagar, who wants to kill gays, including Owen, came to Britain.”

“Owen hates Trump’s firm rejection of cultural Marxism, and is trying to weaken his power, by painting him as Hitler, to claim the moral high ground. The US President is visiting on behalf of the American people, our greatest trade ally – whatever whiny lefties think, the US nation chose him, as their representative. Therefore, anyone who rejects their choice, not only spurns democracy – rather ironic when they call Trump a fascist – but also, is most certainly a hypocrite, who wishes to destroy economy, while being quite happy to sell arms to Saudi, which hardly has a glowing record for human rights.”

“A tweet is not an endorsement. Trump clearly shared the video because the content concerned him. It featured the murder of young men in the Middle East, probably because they are gay – the US president intent was to oppose homophobia.”

“If only Parliament would stop brown-nosing to Saudi Arabia and find such enthusiasm to speak out on the real problems. Every few days we hear another report of an Islamist attack; four this year. Kids are dying. Britain is home to 23,000 suspected terrorists, and 400 ISIS fighters who have returned. The hush up of the racially-motivated rape of thousands of little white girls in Rotherham, Rochdale, Keighley and other towns. Christmas markets surrounded by concrete barriers to keep cars back. Bollards on bridges. Armed police everywhere. Something is very wrong with our country when dissing Jayda Fransen is the Home Secretary’s top priority.”

Luke Nash-Jones of the People’s Charter Foundation; Richard Inman of Veterans Against Terrorism; the Football Lads Alliance; and others, including a racially-diverse group of ex-Muslims, will be leading a protest on the 26th in support of Trump.

Trump REBUKES Theresa May: “Focus on the destructive Radical Islamic terrorism”

in Islamism/World News by

Trump’s sharing of the Britain First content comes at a very awkward time for the May government, who have just had Fransen arrested for stirring “racial hatred”. Now, the most powerful Western leader is going against May’s agenda.

While US presidents traditionally pick up the telephone or make subtle diplomatic overtures to express their feelings to world leaders, Trump used his preferred social media outlet to reach the Prime Minister, perhaps reflecting how little he thought of Mr Maybe’s view.

Theresa May finds herself this week in a very tricky situation. On one hand, as Britain is part of the Union for the Mediterranean, she has to keep happy its southern oil-rich Arab League OPEC members that our economy relies on (1970s oil embargo), such as Libya, Algeria, etc., who will not appreciate criticism of Islam. Hence, Theresa May was probably under incredible pressure to criticise the Donald’s decision to retweet three videos that had been posted by Jayda Fransen of Britain First.

On the other, as Britain, leaves the EU, even if just in name, a trade deal with the US will be an absolute priority, and this means Mrs Maybe can not afford to alienate Trump. While the US government pursues a nationalistic “American exceptionalism” approach, putting its people first, bring jobs back from China, Theresa is a globalist Remoaner who would give up our national sovereignty and identity.

Many people in Britain were pleased when the US President tweeted: “Theresa @theresamay, don’t focus on me, focus on the destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom. We are doing just fine!”

Her spokesperson said Trump had been “wrong” to share the videos, adding that “Britain First seeks to divide communities through their use of hateful narratives which peddle lies and stoke tensions”, and “British people overwhelmingly reject the prejudiced rhetoric of the far-right”.

Luke Nash-Jones, Director of the People’s Charter Foundation stated, “While some people may not appreciate the Britain First strategy, such as ‘mosque invasions’ (I, myself, prefer other approaches), they are not ‘far-right’ – they are not neo-Nazis, holding drunken parties where they sing Nazi songs – no, that’s what Theresa’s own party do!”

UKIP MEP Gerard Batten said, “BBC today branding Britain First party as ;far-right’. I have no interest in BF but what gives BBC the right to decide who is ‘far-right’?”

Trump’s state visit to the UK will occur, even if Chuka Umuna MP is furious. Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, ever keen for an opportunity to virtue signal, said Trump’s decision to retweet the videos was “deeply disturbing”. Saudi-funded the Independent was quick to quote CAIR, a group many, even Al Jazeera, associate with Hamas, to defend Theresa.

The Conservative party’s UK Communities Secretary Sajid Javid, a Muslim himself, said Trump had “endorsed the views of a vile, hate-filled racist organisation that hates me and people like me”, and was “wrong” to have done so.

However, Trump appears to have shared the posts due to his concern about the surge in Isalmists attacks in the UK. The White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended the President by saying journalists were focusing on “the wrong thing”. She said: “Whether it’s a real video, the threat is real. His goal is to promote strong border security and strong national security.”

One carried the caption, “Muslim migrants beating up a Dutch boy on crutches”, while another claimed to show an “Islamist mob” pushing a teenager off a roof and beating him to death and a third allegedly showed a Muslim man destroying a Virgin Mary statue.

Fransen quickly moved to capitalise on the attention Mr Trump had brought her, saying she was “delighted”.

Bitter EU kicks Britain out of the Capital of Culture contest

in Anglophobia / Marxism/Brexit/World News by

Dundee will not be able to compete in the European Capital of Culture 2023 competition due to Brexit, the European Commission has stated.

Five UK cities were bidding to host the title, with the winner expected to be announced next week.

A letter from the European Commission to the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) said UK participation “would not be possible”.

It said the UK’s selection process should “immediately be discontinued”.

The DCMS said it “disagreed” with the European Commission’s stance and was “deeply disappointed” that the Commission had waited until the UK cities had submitted their bids before “communicating this new position to us”.

Martin Costello of UKIP Swindon states, “They simply hate us and treat us like naughty children. Out of the 27 members they are claiming we owe 14% of their entire budget!”

“How anyone can continue to support this racket is beyond me. £40bn equates to £2k per person. We don’t owe a penny and must not pay!”

A Dundee 2023 spokesman said that the team was “hugely disappointed” at the European Commission’s late decision.

He said: “The timing is disrespectful not only to the citizens of Dundee, but to people from all five bidding cities who have devoted so much time, effort and energy so far in this competition.

“It’s a sad irony that one of the key drivers of our bid was a desire to further enhance our cultural links with Europe.”

UK loses seat on International Court of Justice for first time since 1946

in Brexit/World News by

Britain’s demise on the world political landscape continues, as we are seen as nothing more than a state of the EU. The UK has lost its seat on the International Court of Justice – a position held since 1946.

Based at The Hague, the UN court has 15 members and its job is to settle disputes between countries.

Christopher Greenwood, the current British judge, was running for re-election to serve a second nine-year term – but withdrew from the race after facing a run-off vote against India’s Dalveer Bhandari.

Ronny Abraham of France, Abdulqawi Ahmed Yusuf of Somalia, Antonio Augusto Cancado Trindade of Brazil and Nawaf Salam of Lebanon have been elected to the bench along with Judge Bhandari.

Although Mr Greenwood had a majority among the UN Security Council, Mr Bhandari won the most backing in the General Assembly – with the Indian judge’s popularity seen to be increasing as support for the Briton diminished.

This is an outrage! Our nation is not only the birthplace of democracy, of liberty, of the rule of law, but it was Britons who exported justice to much of the world, which before then could not even read and write.

Russian Supreme Court: Ending Parental Radicalisation

in World News by

The Russian Supreme Court has ruled in support of legislative recommendation allowing the deprivation of parental rights to citizens who allow their kids to join destructive sects, terrorist groups or other extremist organisations.

“The term ‘abuse of parental rights’ should be understood as the use of these rights in a way that can hurt the children’s interests, for example through hindering their education, involving them in gambling, a homeless lifestyle, begging, theft, prostitution and substance abuse,” reads the ruling of the Supreme Court Plenum.

Other examples listed in the ruling include encouraging kids’ participation in any public or religious group that has been officially recognised as extremist and banned by a Russian court. The ruling allows Russian courts to deprive citizens of their parental rights if they are found guilty of such abuse.

The most recent update to Russian anti-terrorist laws, introduced in mid-2016, lowered the age threshold for terrorist crimes such as attacks and hostage taking from 16 to 14 years. The law also provides for up to 10 years in prison for anyone engaging in international terrorism, and up to 15 years behind bars for anyone found guilty of financing terrorist groups. Attracting new recruits to a terrorist organisation was also criminalised, and is punishable by prison terms of between five and 10 years.

The proposed amendment stipulates punishment of up to life in prison for those convicted of recruiting new members in terrorist groups and also amends the current formula “public calls for terrorist activities or public justification of terrorism” with a formula “promotion of terrorism.” It also makes the latter punishable with between two and seven years in prison and using mass media or internet for terrorist propaganda.

Whilst the bill is yet to be approved, it is certainly a step in the right direction to tackle extremism.

British lawmakers should take a leaf out of Russia’s book and implement similar policies, to prevent the radicalisation of children beginning at home. Prevent, one of four strands of the government’s counter-terrorism strategy, released concerning figures that highlights the issue of radicalisation of young people under the age of 18.

If Britain implemented a similar strategy to the Russian example, it could prevent the radicalisation of children in their own homes, and ensure our young people are protected from dangerous ideologies that harm Britain.
