    THREE archbishops from war-torn Iraq and Syria have been refused permission to enter the UK despite being invited to London to meet Prince Charles.The Christians, including the Archbishop of Mosul, were told there was “no room at the inn” by the Home Office when they applied for visas to attend the consecration of the UK’s first Syriac Orthodox Cathedral. Last night the decision was described as “unbelievable” by critics who pointed out that extreme Islamic leaders had been allowed visas. The Prince of Wales addressed the congregation at St Thomas Cathedral in London last week, while both the Queen and...

    Wartime spy, big game hunter - and for 80 years the Queen's best friend: Lady Margaret Rhodes was a glorious character from a bygone era - and her death is a shattering blow to Her Majesty,  That she died peacefully at home in her own bed would have been just the way she would have wanted it. No fuss, no unnecessary excitement, certainly no blaze of glory. With her headscarf, perm and sensible shoes, Margaret Rhodes represented the polar opposite of a modern world where television and social media bestow celebrity on the trashy, the flashy and the undeserving.

    A vast, mysterious complex dating back more than 5,600 years has been unearthed just 1.5 miles from Stonehenge, British archaeologists have announced. The finding in Wiltshire reinforces the theory that Stonehenge was a sacred monument and suggests the entire region was ritually active hundreds of years before the enigmatic stone circle was erected. Found during excavations ahead of the construction of a new Army Service family accommodation, the 650-foot-diameter complex is known as a "causewayed enclosure." It consists of more than 3,100 feet of segmented ditches arranged in two concentric circles. According to archaeologists at Wessex Archaeology, the remains date...

Trump, who after his election victory met Farage before any EU leaders, said on Twitter that "many people" would like to see the former metals trader turned politician as Britain's ambassador. "Many people would like to see @Nigel_Farage represent Great Britain as their Ambassador to the United States. He would do a great job!" Trump said.

    Britain and the US appear to be going through similar crises of identity. Across the pond, Donald Trump’s incredibly divisive victory has seen protests across the country. The state of the UK isn’t much better: Theresa May’s Brexit bumbling and the High Court’s decision to leave Article 50 to an MPs' vote has left the country thoroughly frustrated. But there seems to be a solution forming in the minds of Britons: Poach the American leaving office.

    According the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) — part of the Council of Europe — the British press is to blame for increasing hate speech and racist violence. On October 4, 2016, the ECRI released a report dedicated only to Britain. The report said: some traditional media, particularly tabloids… are responsible for most of the offensive, discriminatory and provocative terminology. The Sun, for instance, published an article in April 2015 entitled “Rescue boats? I’d use gunships to stop migrants”, in which the columnist likened migrants to “cockroaches”… The Sun newspaper has also published inflammatory anti-Muslim headlines, such...

    A British couple have been barred from adopting their foster children because of their “concerning” views about same-sex parenting. The couple decided to try to adopt their two foster children themselves after finding out that a gay couple were prospective parents. The unnamed Christian couple from the Midlands told social services that children need a mother and father. Social services said that this view could be “detrimental to the long-term needs of the children.” The couple have appealed the decision made by social services in a letter to their local council. The pair argued that they had “not expressed homophobic...

It’s almost worth him winning for that alone. Oh, and for the Guardian’s tears. I don’t like Trump. There seems to be no coherence to his policies. He is boorish, sure. But it is his inarticulacy and apparent stupidity that bothers me more. That being said, if you are British and a pragmatist you should be hoping for Trump to win. It is incredible...

    The Italian Ambassador to the UK has intervened after parents complained about the distinction made between Italy, Sicily and Naples in school district questionnaires. When selecting their ethnicity from a drop-down menu on school district websites, Italians in the UK faced a surprising choice. They were asked to define themselves as either 'Italian', 'Italian - Sicilian', 'Italian - Neapolitan' or 'Italian - Other'. Complaints initially came from parents in Bradford, north England, but it became clear this was not an isolated case, and that several school districts in England and Wales differentiated between northern and southern Italians.

The British prime minister caught the other 27 off guard on Oct. 2 when, having campaigned to stay in the bloc, she thrilled her Conservatives’ conference in Birmingham with rousing pledges to start Brexit talks by March, curb immigration and reject EU court rulings — a recipe, EU leaders said, for "hard Brexit".

    The bloody collapse of Libya – which triggered a refugee crisis and aided the rise of Isis – is blamed today on David Cameron's blunders when he intervened to overthrow Colonel Gaddafi. A damning report by MPs condemns the 2011 military campaign for lacking both “accurate intelligence” and a coherent strategy for the aftermath of removing the dictator. The disastrous results were “political and economic collapse”, tribal warfare, the refugee crisis, widespread human rights abuses and the rise of Islamic State (IS) in North Africa, fuelled by weapons abandoned by the Gaddafi regime. The Foreign Affairs Select Committee concludes: “Through...

This was significantly less than the 73% of Brits who considered themselves both “very right wing” and sexually satisfied, and the 70% who considered themselves “right wing” and satisfied. In Germany, 77% of those who considered themselves very right wing also claimed to be satisfied in bed, while 71% of very left wing people claimed to have...

    Day-trippers and tourists complained they don’t know which way to turn while crossing streets in central London after being confronted by a series of arrows pointing in different directions. Around 50 sets of traffic lights near busy Trafalgar Square had their “walk” and “green man” images replaced with the new designs in June to coincide with an annual Gay Pride Festival.

    Mohammed is the most popular name for boys in England and Wales- but it doesn't top the official list because there are so many different ways to spell it. There were 7,361 children born last year called Mohammed, Muhammed, Mohammad or Mohamed, according to the Office for National Statistics, which would have made it the number one boys name if the variations were taken into account. Instead it is Oliver that tops the boys' list while Amelia dominates the girls' figures, with 6,941 and 5,158 children given those names respectively.

    Black Lives Matter protesters campaigning for "justice" over the death of a man under police restraint occupied a Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) office demanding action. Campaigners raising awareness about the case of Kingsley Burrell, who died in 2011 following contact with police, staged a noisy but non-violent demonstration in the Colmore Gate offices in Birmingham after an earlier rally in the city. The protest dispersed when a senior manager from the West Midlands CPS agreed to take a letter from the campaign group raising 10 key points in Mr Burrell's case, and pass it to the director of public prosecutions...

    A family outing to an Emirates airline cable car in east London was interrupted by anti-Semitic shouts, telling the family to "go back to Isra-hell," The Mirror reported Wednesday. A film of the incident features a man's voice aggressively telling the family, "Don't come round here, go to Stamford Hill, you're not welcome." The man repeated the phrase multiple times. Though the family wished to remain anonymous the father stated that all his six children began crying during the attack. The children vary in age from six-weeks to ten-years-old. [snip] London saw a 61 percent increase in anti-Semitic attacks in...

    The marketing team of Frankfurt never expected its English-language dummy website to attract new businesses would actually go live after Britain’s European Union referendum. “We hadn’t really assumed that we would need the site at all,” spokeswoman Michaela Kahle told AFP, as the team thought Britons would surely vote “Remain”. But as it turned out, the Welcome to FrankfurtRheinMain site was not only put to good use, but has become a hit, with 27,000 views since Britain stunned the world by deciding to leave the bloc. Quickly recovering from the shock, Kahle and her colleagues kicked into action, fielding inquiries...
  • UK prisons: Staff afraid to stand up to jihadis for fear of being labeled “racist”

    Wardens in prisons in the UK (and throughout the West) are failing “to stop jihadi poison spreading in jails: Staff face being labelled racist if they stand up to hate preachers.” Calling out jihadist doctrine renders one a so-called “islamophobe,” and this label — intended to browbeat the infidel — must be fully resisted. UK prisons today show why: this label is enabling jihad activity. In America, it’s no different, as federal prisons are described by experts as “breeding grounds” for terrorists. The implications are severe…. “Prisons have long been criticized for a culture that can make some inmates more...
