    Sir David Attenborough has said the BBC still needs “white men explaining things” in television programmes, after the editor of BBC Four said “the era of that has passed.” The Blue Planet presenter gently contradicted Cassian Harrison, who told the Edinburgh International Television Festival in August: “There’s a mode of programming that involves a presenter, usually white, middle-aged and male, standing on a hill and ‘telling you like it is.’ “We all recognise the era of that has passed.” Newsnight’s Evan Davis asked: "I don't know if you heard in August, Cassian Harrison, the editor of BBC Four, said the...

    A company contracted by the NHS to dispose of waste has been stockpiling hundreds of tonnes of human body parts, a leaked document has revealed. NHS England memos obtained by the Health Service Journal show that Healthcare Environment Services Ltd - attached to up to 50 NHS trusts - has allowed amputated limbs, infectious liquids, refuse linked to cancer treatment and other hazardous materials to build up at its five waste handling sites. It sparked health and social care secretary Matt Hancock to chair a COBRA meeting last month, during which he ordered Ł1million to be set aside to help...

    UK Home Secretary Sajid Javid has been urged to block a visit from a US preacher who claims that gay people ‘steal children.’ Franklin Graham, the head of Christian charity Samaritan’s Purse, and the son of evangelical preacher Billy Graham, is set to visit the UK this weekend to attend the Lancashire Festival of Hope event in Blackpool.  His presence has been sharply criticised by local figures due to Graham’s archaic views. Graham, who has close ties to the Trump administration and preached at his inauguration, has previously praised Vladimir Putin’s anti-gay laws and told crowds in Russia that...
  • Police ‘Too Busy With Online Spats for Serious Crime’ (UK)

    UK Police are too busy responding to trivial social media spats to tackle serious crime, the new head of the Police Federation has said, after years of forces encouraging “hate crime” reports for offensive comments. Officers on the street still have a “desperation to do the job and very often they can’t because their hands are tied,” according to chairman John Apter who represents 120,000 rank-and-file officers. He argued that the focus on new types of crime, including cyber and “hate offences,” can come at the expense of traditional police work. Both need addressing, he said, but not one at...

    The number of children waiting more than six months for NHS dental treatment has risen by 52  per cent in three years, new figures show. Labour said there had been a “completely unacceptable” deterioration in child dental care as it revealed the findings. The statistics from Freedom of Information requests show that children are waiting an average of two weeks more for operations, compared with 2013. In the worst performing trust, Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust, children waited an average of 253 days for treatment. Overall, the findings show a 15 per cent increase over three years in...

    The Muslim Council of Britain is calling on the British government to ban renowned evangelist Franklin Graham because they allege his views on Islam and same-sex marriage violate the nation's hate speech laws. Graham, the president of Samaritan's Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, is scheduled to lead a series of religious gatherings beginning Sept. 21. "In the past the government has banned individuals whom they claim are 'not conducive to the public good.' Mr. Graham's remarks are on record and clearly demonstrate a hatred for Muslims and other minorities," the organization said in a statement. One government leader...

    A traffic warden is living in fear of reprisal after being savagely beaten "for doing his job." Charlie Weston was left lying helplessly on the floor as a group of men repeatedly stamped on his head after he approached a car to give it a ticket. The 21-year-old admits he feels "lucky to be alive" after the ordeal which happened in Birmingham and left his face splattered with blood. He had been inspecting cars in the road for 10 minutes when the incident unfolded. Charlie was kicked in the throat and had his head stamped on before his attackers allegedly...

    One of the funnier comedy Trump videos on YouTube is a montage, made before he became president, of all the times Trump said China. It’s about three minutes long and is mesmerisingly hilarious. As a candidate, he talked about China ‘raping’ America. Funnily enough, that was exactly what Americans wanted to hear...Maybe Trump isn’t as stupid as he seems – and maybe his supporters aren’t as stupid as smug liberals assume. Forty per cent of Americans never leave their country, but they can see how it is being eclipsed by China. And US voters know that China doesn’t play by...

    The UK Labour Party has been charged with spewing anti-Semitic sentiments in recent years. In a 2013 speech at the Palestinian Return Center in London, for instance, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the following: Where, then, lies the grievance with Corbyn? At that meeting on Sunday, Jewish Labourites were not opposing the party leader for championing the Palestinians. They were opposing him for, to take one example, his 2013 attack on a group of “Zionists” he’d encountered, where he tackled them not on their arguments but on ethnic grounds, noting that despite “having lived in this country for a very...

    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...
