  • Britain seen empty-handed in EU top jobs carve-up

    Britain may come away empty-handed when European Union leaders carve up a package of top EU jobs next week, due to its fierce opposition to Jean-Claude Juncker’s appointment as the next European Commission president. Prime Minister David Cameron angered his peers in June by breaking with a tradition of taking decisions by consensus and forcing them to vote on whether Juncker should head the EU executive. Only Britain and Hungary voted “no”. Cameron publicly branded Juncker a “career insider of Brussels” and said his selection was a bad day for Europe. “After the mess at the last summit, many leaders...

    UK prime minister David Cameron is to force EU leaders to vote on whether to appoint Jean-Claude Juncker to become the next president of the European Commission at a summit later this week. […] A vote would be unprecedented. Traditionally, EU leaders decide on the leader of the EU executive by consensus following a formal discussion. Cameron has argued that Juncker, a former prime minister of the Grand Duchy and veteran of more than twenty years of EU summitry, is too federalist and will be unable to reform the EU, in the wake of election results which saw a surge...

    BRITONS fighting for the brutal Islamist group terrorising the Middle East have faked their deaths on the battlefield in an attempt to return to the UK undetected, according to security sources. In one case, the martyrdom of a fighter in Syria was announced by his colleagues on social media, only for police to arrest the “dead” individual at Dover. The use of such tactics emerged just days after David Cameron warned that jihadists with the Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham, or Isis, are planning attacks on British soil.

    The vast majority of the four million people who voted for the UK Independence Party in the European elections will make the same choice at the general election, a new poll predicts today. The poll by ComRes suggests that 86 percent of people who voted for Nigel Farage’s party will do so again next year. More than 4.3  million people voted for UKIP in the European elections, giving the party its first national victory. The Conservatives came third, suggesting many of their previous supporters had defected to UKIP. Several Cabinet ministers have publicly said that many UKIP voters are merely...

    Conservative Party Leader David Cameron is trying to sabotage UKIP’s influence at the European Parliament, just days after trying to appear sympathetic to euroscepticism by telling the British people that their message at the polls was “received and understood.” Instead of accepting UKIP's victory, Cameron has started a drive to cut off the legs of “the people’s army” in Brussels and Strasbourg. He has assigned Conservative Party fixers to do deals with hard-right and populist parties which, until now, the Conservatives claimed were “unacceptable.” The Tories are trying to stop Nigel Farage from forming a political group in the parliament...

    All over Europe, voters are turning in a conservative direction, and against the autocratic European Union and its big government enablers. New York Times reporters Steven Erlanger and Stephen Castle write a dripping-with-disdain account of local election results in the UK, which will be followed tomorrow by results for the European Parliament. To them, conservatgives are “right wingers” or “far-right” and those who object to EU takeover of sovereignty are “anti-Europe.” Voters in Britain sent a forceful message of discontent to established political parties on Friday, as returns from local elections showed an even stronger following than expected for the...

    Nigel Farage today declared that Ukip is ‘re-writing political history’ after making in-roads into Labour, Tory and Lib Dem heartlands. With half of local election results declared, Ukip has won more than 100 seats, costing all the main parties overall control of town halls across the country. David Cameron rejected calls from Tory MPs to strike an electoral pact with Ukip, as Nick Clegg refused to resign after seeing the Lib Dems ousted from flagship councils. But Ed Miliband came under the greatest pressure, with Labour MPs lining up to warn his ‘unprofessional’ and ‘weird’ campaign had failed to connect...

    David Cameron is planning new powers to muzzle Islamic hate preachers accused of provoking terrorist outrages such as the killing of soldier Lee Rigby. The Prime Minister wants to stop extremist clerics using schools, colleges, prisons and mosques to spread their ‘poison’ and is to head a new Tackling Extremism and Radicalisation Task Force (TERFOR) made up of senior Ministers, MI5, police and moderate religious leaders. The high-powered group will study a number of measures, including banning extremist clerics from being given public platforms to incite students, prisoners and other followers – and forcing mosque leaders to answer for ‘hate...

    ST IVES, CAMBRIDGESHIRE, UK –– An over-capacity crowd of around 650 people met UKIP leader Nigel Farage for the final town hall-style meeting of his pre-European Election tour of the United Kingdom. With UKIP swag plastered all over the Burgess Hall venue, Farage entered to rapturous applause, flanked by increased security following the assault on him earlier this week. Farage was speaking to the throngs of disaffected Brits, who have witnessed their livelihoods sacrificed for multiculturalism, big state-driven debt, and the transfer of sovereignty over their own lives from their local towns and villages to centralised governments in London and...

    Since the start of the ill-named “Arab Spring,” the Muslim Brotherhood has been very much in the news. Coming to power through democratic elections in Egypt and Tunisia, they were toppled within a short time by the people, who discovered their true intentions. There were some in the West – but not all – who saw the light as well. British Prime Minister David Cameron has ordered a comprehensive review of the movement,... its activities in Britain and its impact on the country’s interests. The decision was made because the Brotherhood is allegedly behind terrorist operations in Egypt, and because...

    Nigel Farage could win a seat at Westminster within weeks after a disgraced Conservative backbencher quit the Commons and forced an unexpected by-election. In a significant blow to the Tories, Patrick Mercer stepped down as MP for Newark on Tuesday night, only days before he was due to be suspended from Parliament for six months.

    David Cameron has promised to quit as Prime Minister if he is unable to deliver an in-out referendum on the European Union by 2017. He promised he would not “barter away” the referendum in new coalition negotiations, as an angry Conservative activist told him the public do not believe he will deliver on his promise to give the British people a say on EU membership. There are fears the pledge could be blocked by the Liberal Democrats during coalition talks if the 2015 election produces another hung parliament. Nigel Farage, the UKIP leader, claims Mr. Cameron has no intention of...

Signatories to the letter asserting that Britain is not a Christian country include Philip Pullman, Ken Follett, Prof Alice Roberts, Prof Harold Kroto and Sir Terry Pratchett. The authors say they respect Cameron's own religious beliefs but say they "object to his repeated mischaracterising of our country as a 'Christian country' and the negative consequences for our politics and society that this view engenders".

    European lawmakers on Thursday eased the way for cartel victims to claim compensation from companies under new rules that also shield price-fixing whistleblowers from being the main target of million-euro lawsuits. The green light from the European Parliament came nine years after the European Commission broached the idea, seeing it as an additional tool, on top of fines, to deter companies from breaking antitrust laws. According to the Commission, only one in four cartels and antitrust infringements faced damages claims in the last seven years. Its 2010 estimate put the cost of unrecovered damages of infringements at over €20 billion...

    LONDON – Setting up an intriguing election battle, Britain’s opposition Labor Party announced Friday that it had hired President Obama’s chief campaign advisor to help the party return to power next year over the ruling Conservatives. The decision to recruit David Axelrod means that the 2015 British election will pit two of Obama’s strategists against each other. Working for the Conservatives is Jim Messina, who, like Axelrod, toiled on both of Obama’s presidential campaigns and who served as his deputy White House chief of staff during his first term. “David is used to tough fights, and he is going to...

The appointment of Axelrod to the Labour team is the latest in a long line of foreign consultants brought in to try and help Ed Miliband's team on the run up to the UK General Election in May 2015. Axelrod follows in the footsteps of 69-year-old U.S. community organiser Arnie Graf, who embarrassed Labour by claiming he was working for them, rather than consulting for them, without a UK work...

This has been a consistent theme of this government; I’m sure there’s more we could do to help make it easier for faith organisations….

    Ahead of May’s European Parliament election, with issues such as the economy and immigration to the fore, none of Britain’s three main parties are stealing a march on their rivals. The co-governing, right-of-center Conservative Party, also known as the Tories, led by Prime Minister David Cameron, is struggling. What remains of its traditional support base, including some MPs, often seems opposed to the modernizing, socially-liberal direction of its leadership.

She accused the Government of “distorting” the facts about Europe and condemned Tory talk of “opt-outs, renegotiation and referenda” for “holding back our Union as a whole.” In a speech in Cambridge, Mrs. Reding said she believed the...

The Conservative Party can be seen as being focused on what it is against and risks “not talking about what we like and how we want to help people”, Miss Morgan indicated. Miss Morgan is considered to be a rising star in the...

    David Cameron plans to strip welfare handouts from immigrants who cannot speak English. In a radical bid to slash Britain’s benefits bill, the Prime Minister intends to stop printing welfare paperwork in foreign languages and prevent claimants using taxpayer-funded translators at benefits offices. The move – which would also hit British residents who cannot speak English – was due to be announced tomorrow, but has been delayed following a row with Nick Clegg.

    Britain told its European Union partners on Wednesday the EU’s treaties were “not fit for purpose” and there must be reform or it would quit the bloc. In the latest blast of euroskepticism from Conservatives in Britain’s coalition government, finance minister George Osborne said EU treaties had to be changed to protect member states like his own that don’t use the euro. The comments, made at a conference in London on reform of the 28-nation EU, are unlikely to be embraced by integrationists in Brussels, who want Britain to remain in the bloc but have become irritated by its demands...

    Britain's involvement in the massacre of hundreds of Sikh separatists in an Indian temple in 1984 will be urgently investigated, David Cameron has ordered. Previously secret documents released by the Government have shown that a SAS officer was drafted in to help the Indian authorities with plans to remove dissident Sikhs from the Golden Temple at Amritsar, Sikhism's holiest shrine. The plan was ordered with the full knowledge of then Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher the documents say. Hundreds of Sikhs were killed in the attack. Yesterday Sikh leaders said the revelations amounted to the British Government ‘backstabbing” and have called...

    The BBC has spent tens of thousands of pounds over six years trying to keep secret an extraordinary ‘eco’ conference which has shaped its coverage of global warming, The Mail on Sunday can reveal. The controversial seminar was run by a body set up by the BBC’s own environment analyst Roger Harrabin and funded via a £67,000 grant from the then Labour government, which hoped to see its ‘line’ on climate change and other Third World issues promoted in BBC reporting. At the event, in 2006, green activists and scientists – one of whom believes climate change is a bigger...

    PRIME Minister David Cameron has appealed to Scots to vote to stay in the UK for the sake of their “children and grandchildren” when they go to the polls in the referendum this year. In his New Year message, the Tory leader insisted it will be the biggest decision Scots have ever faced on 18 September. He used his message to warn that there will be no let-up in the climate of austerity this year – with a pledge to “redouble” efforts to reduce the UK’s massive annual spending deficit. Mr Cameron said 2014 would be an “important date in...

    • Huge deal to sell Typhoon fighters to UAE in doubt • Implications for other Gulf arms deals after Iran nuclear talks If there were any remaining doubts that arms sales take precedence over human rights or concerns about exacerbating regional tensions, the British government has been unashamedly quashing them. UK prime minister David Cameron and his defence secretary Philip Hammond have been busy trying to persuade the rulers of the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain to buy British Typhoon jets, following the example of Saudi Arabia and Oman. The Saudis, the UK's largest arms customer, have bought 72 Typhoons,...

    Britain deserves a “more accountable, more decisive” Government than the coalition that would do more to cut tax, go further on welfare reform and reform human rights law, David Cameron has said. The Prime Minister said he “very passionately” wants to lead a single party administration after the election, complaining that the Liberal Democrats have held the Conservatives back in a series of key areas. He hinted that he would ultimately like to cut the top rate of income tax to 40 percent—a move said to have been vetoed by the Lib Dems, who wanted it reduced from 50p to...

    David Cameron’s rush to legalise gay marriage left Conservatives “shocked”, a senior Cabinet minister claimed today. Defense Secretary Philip Hammond warned “tumultuous” row was “damaging” for the Tories because the Prime Minister appeared not to care what grassroots activists thought. … Mr. Cameron has admitted gay marriage has been deeply unpopular within Tory ranks, but insisted it was the right thing to do. When the controversial legislation became law, he spoke of his pride that gay boys at school worried about being bullied would see Parliament declaring that “their love is the same as everyone else’s love”. …

    US President John F. Kennedy would have urged Britain to stay within the EU, former foreign secretary David Miliband has claimed. The ex-Labour MP made the bizarre suggestion in speech to mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of the former president. Mr. Miliband said he had “no doubt” that JFK would argue that Britain should stay in the Europe Union and would back David Cameron’s call for a “deeper and stronger single market”. …

    In an act of dhimmitude that would make Sir Winston Churchill roll over in his grave, the increasingly submissive Prime Minister of Great Britain – David Cameron – has decided to embrace Sharia Compliant Finance (SCF). Like a python’s victim, Cameron has just caused his country to exhale a bit more of its breath, after which, the grip tightens. ...
