  • PETER HITCHENS: The 'patriotic' thought police came for Corbyn. You are next

    Is THIS a warning? In the past few days I have begun to sense a dangerous and dark new intolerance in the air, which I have never experiences before. An unbidden instinct tells me to be careful what I say or write, in case it ends badly for me. How badly? That is the trouble. I am genuinely unsure. I have been to too many countries where free speech is dangerous. But I have always assumed that there was no real risk here. Now, several nasty trends have come together. The treatment of Jeremy Corbyn, both by politicians and many...

    February 1. Foreign Office officials invited 1,800 female staff members to wear Islamic headscarves to mark World Hijab Day. The department gave away taxpayer-funded headscarves, claiming they symbolized "liberation, respect and security." Critics, citing the compulsory veiling of women in Islamic countries such as Iran and Saudi Arabia, said the garment is a symbol of male oppression. Tory MP Andrew Bridgen said, "I'd like to know whose bright idea this was. It is ridiculous, a complete waste of taxpayers' money and not the business of a government department. I can't see the Foreign Office promoting Christianity or the handing out...

    British police have identified more than 200 witnesses and are looking at more than 240 pieces of evidence in their investigation into a nerve agent attack on a Russian ex-spy and his daughter, UK interior minister Amber Rudd said on Saturday. Ms Rudd told reporters after chairing a meeting of the government’s Cobra security committee that more than 250 counter-terrorism police were involved in the investigation, which was proceeding with “speed and professionalism”. Former double agent Sergei Skripal (66) and his daughter Yulia (33) have been in hospital in a critical condition since Sunday, when they were found unconscious on...

    [Transcript] When it comes to the ongoing wave of migrant rape and sexual assault in Europe the people I feel most sorry for are the refugee-friendly Progressive feminists because, when they get raped, they won't even know who to blame without being a racist. What am I saying... of course they will. They'll blame all men as usual while telling everybody else not to generalize. I hadn't intended to talk about this subject again for a while but it’s International Women’s Day so, how can I resist? You may know that a couple of recent videos of mine have been...

The five died when a blast ripped through a Polish convenience store and a home last Sunday, turning the building into rubble. Police said in a statement they had charged three men over the case: Aram Kurd, 33, from Leicester, Hawkar Hassan, 32, from Coventry and Arkan Ali, 37, from Oldham.

    In the UK, “there has yet to be a single conviction for FGM despite tens of thousands of recorded cases since it was criminalised in 1985.”The reason for that is abundantly clear: Muslims are the primary practitioners of female genital mutilation, and the UK police are afraid of appearing “Islamophobic,” just as in Rotherham, Muslim rape gangs preyed on over 1,400 non-Muslim girls while authorities did nothing for fear of appearing “racist.”Instead of learning their lesson and enforcing the law against FGM, the Surrey Police just issued a rather plaintive call for children to “find your voice” and report FGM...

    Theresa May has agreed a joint trade and investment review with China as the first step towards an "ambitious" post-Brexit deal, Downing Street said. The prime minister said "we will be free to strike our own trade deals" after leaving the EU, following talks with China's President Xi Jinping. Mr Xi said China's markets would be further opened to the UK, including in beef, dairy and other food products. Mrs May said £9bn in business deals would be signed on her three-day trip. There was no specific discussion of a particular model for a trade deal between the two countries...

    A group of campaigners, including Prof Stephen Hawking, has been given permission to challenge a government health policy in the High Court. They will pursue a judicial review against Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt and NHS England over plans to create accountable care organisations (ACOs). These are to act as partnership bodies incorporating hospitals, community services and councils. Campaigners say it risks privatisation, but this is denied by ministers. 'Radical changes' NHS England wants hospitals and other trusts to work closely with GPs and social care services to look after more patients in their communities rather than in hospital. In some...

    NORTH Korea will have missiles capable of reaching and striking Britain “within six months” as the UK draws up evacuation plans, it has been revealed. Hermit kingdom dictator Kim Jong-un’s regime in recent months has conducted several increasingly sophisticated nuclear tests as it expanded its missile programme. And Britain now fears it is a matter of months before North Korea will have the capability of hitting the UK. It has even drawn up evacuation plans which are “under constant review”. This comes as it was revealed North Korea are mere months away from developing nuclear weapons. Defence minister Earl Howe...

    A British butcher who got locked in a freezer says he was saved by a frozen sausage that he used as a battering ram. Chris McCabe says he became trapped in the walk-in freezer at his shop in Totnes, southwest England, last month when wind blew the door shut. The safety button to open the door had frozen in the -20 C (-4 F) chill. McCabe told website Devon Live that he used the meaty tube "like a battering ram" and managed to unstick the button after several blows.
