    'The whole of Bradford has been rocked': Thousands attend funerals of four men who died in police pursuit Thousands of people have attended the funerals of four young men who died when their car collided with a tree while being pursued by the police. Murtza Chaudhry and Arbaaz Hussain, both 21, Zeeshan Khalid, 20, and Tayyab Siddique, 22, died when the BMW they were travelling in crashed on Toller Lane in Bradford on Thursday. All four were remembered by crowds of people in a park in the city on Saturday afternoon. Four hearses carried coffins of the dead. Four hearses...

    If you’ve followed the saga of Baby Oliver – the British baby with the life-threatening heart tumor – you’ll be glad to know that the good ‘ol U.S. of A. came to this young Brit’s rescue. But how it happened is an amazing saga – and also very instructive to some left-wing American politicians … or at least to their constituents. Oliver Cameron, in case you weren’t following the limited coverage here in America, is a baby boy born with cardiac fibroma – a large, non-cancerous tumor on the heart. Without surgery, his life would be measured in mere months....

    Britain’s darkest hour has followed its finest hour by 78 years. Tommy Robinson has been freed from a stint in prison that he never should have been serving in the first place. The New York Times reported: “On Wednesday, the Court of Appeal ordered his release, pending a new hearing in his case. The court questioned the speed with which he had been tried and convicted, noting that it took five hours from the time of his arrest to a conviction.” Indeed. Tommy Robinson was arrested, tried, and sentenced with a Stalinist rapidity, for the crime of calling attention not...

    Not a single Christian was among the 1,112 Syrian refugees resettled in the UK in the first three months of this year, the Home Office has admitted. It agreed only to resettle Muslims and rejected the four Christians recommended by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), despite past US declarations that Isis was committing genocide against them. The disclosure was obtained by the Barnabas Fund, a charity that supports persecuted Christians, under freedom of information laws after a protracted tussle with the Home Office.

    Ezra Levant of "The Rebel" media reported on Friday that the High Court decision of Tommy Robinson's appeal will be released by the three-judge panel this week (Tuesday July 31st or Wednesday August 1st). Robinson was arrested May 25th in Leeds, England outside of an industrial scale child sex abuse trial involving Muslim defendants (27 men and two women accused). He was livestreaming when police arrested him accusing him of breaching the peace. Within hours and with only a court appointed attorney in the court room (his legal counsel could not get there on such short notice) Robinson was sentence...

    The U.K. is hoping for a special Christmas present from President Donald Trump: a formal signal that he plans to begin talks on a free trade agreement with them in early spring 2019. The U.K. and the United States will soon have the opportunity to negotiate “a trailblazing modern free trade agreement,” said Liam Fox, Britain’s secretary of state for international trade, in remarks at The Heritage Foundation. However, two steps must occur before that can happen: the U.K. must complete its exit from the 28-nation European Union, which is currently scheduled for March 29, 2019, and the Trump administration...

    Ecuador is ready to hand over the WikiLeaks founder to the UK in “coming weeks or even days,” RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan said citing her own sources, as prospects of his eviction from the embassy are back in the media. “My sources tell [Julian] Assange will be handed over to Britain in the coming weeks or even days,” Simonyan wrote in a recent tweet which was reposted by WikiLeaks. “Like never before, I wish my sources were wrong,” she continued. Simonyan's message comes, as speculations Ecuador is in talks with the UK over the future of Assange are back again...

    Top judges will today hear a challenge by former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson against his 13-month jail term for contempt of court. Mr Robinson, real name Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon, was locked up in May after he filmed people involved in a criminal trial and broadcast the footage on social media. The footage, lasting around an hour, was watched 250,000 times within hours of being posted on Facebook. .....

    London’s Metropolitan Police fails to record over 94,500 reported crimes each year, representing 10.5 percent of all reported crimes, according to estimates by the policing and fire services watchdog. Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services (HMICFRS) found that officers were failing to accurately record crimes including domestic abuse and violence when they occurred alongside other crimes as well as some public order offences and low-level crimes. Last year, the Met recorded over 800,000 crimes and the HMICFRS believes these near-100,000 annual missed recordings occur because officers did not “recognise” when crimes were committed or did...

    President Donald Trump's first official visit to the U.K. was marked by thousands of people demonstrating in the streets, first in London as Trump met with Queen Elizabeth and then in Scotland where he went to play a little golf. Handmade signs at the massive protest in central London last Friday took aim at Trump's immigration policies and his past comments about women, among plenty of other topics. Not everyone in the crowds came out to hate on Trump. Some were seen sporting his campaign slogan "Make America Great Again" on hats, according to the Associated Press. But the majority...

    The Scotland police on Saturday arrested and charged a man in connection with the anti-Trump paraglider protest at President Trump's Turnberry golf course, according to the New York Times. The police said in a statement that they had arrested the 55-year-old man in connection with an incident when a "powered parachute was flown in the vicinity of the Turnberry Hotel." The man reportedly flew through a no-fly zone. Videos shared on social media on Friday night showed a man flying over Trump's Scottish golf resort carrying a banner that read "Trump: Well Below Par." The protest was apparently organized by...

    THE QUEEN was left to take on her royal duty alone when she met Donald Trump and wife Melania, with Prince Charles and Prince William refusing to join in the elaborate welcome. Senior members of the Royal Family, including the first and second in line to the throne, had informal discussions about the trip, and let it be known they did not want to take part in arrangements for the US President’s four-day UK visit. Downing Street and Buckingham Palace both said as Trump’s tour of the UK was not an official state visit, there was a singular plan to...

    THE heir to Blenheim Palace was reportedly told to 'upskirt Melania' as he live streamed President Trump's visit to his home. Aristocrat George Spencer-Churchill, 25, filmed the historic event on his phone and posted the clips online. But friends of George, who is a distant relative of Winston Churchill, are said to have made a series of ill-judged comments about the First Lady and her husband. The heir to Blenheim Palace, where the lavish event was being held, showed off images from the black-tie dinner in Oxfordshire on Thursday night. Made In Chelsea star Charlie Mills is said to have...

    LONDON – Thousands of Trump supporters and right-wing activists took to the nation’s capital on Saturday — a day after anti-Trump protesters had dominated the city. While the displays of right-wing support were nowhere near as large as the enormous anti-Trump march that demanded the international media’s attention the day before, it was still a significant show of support for Trump from those eager to counter the claim that Trump had been unanimously rejected by Britons. The day started with a small pro-Trump rally outside the U.S. Embassy, featuring numerous red “MAGA” hats and U.S. and U.K. flags -- as...

    Sam Brownback, the U.S. Ambassador for International Religious Freedom, complained to the British ambassador in Washington D.C. about the treatment of an English right-wing activist who is in jail for disrupting a trial, according to three sources familiar with the discussion. Brownback raised the case of the activist known as Tommy Robinson in a June meeting with Sir Kim Darroch, Britain's Ambassador to the United States, according to a British official and two sources close to the organizers of a pro-Robinson demonstration planned for London on Saturday. Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, though he also uses other aliases,...
