  • Cameron ultimately responsible for Libya collapse and the rise of Isis, Commons report concludes

    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...

She is arguably the most experienced candidate to run to be the president, Khan told reporters following a speech to more than 250 academics, diplomats and business people....

    Just two months after voting to leave the European Union (EU), the UK has announced the construction of a great wall near its most porous border in Calais, to keep illegal migrants out. The UKs southern border checks are conducted in northern France and attempted illegal crossing have more than quadrupled in recent years. UK Border Force guards on French soil stopped 84,088 illegal immigrants last year, figures released last month show. The new 13-foot (4 metre) high wall will be built of smooth concrete, making it hard to climb, and will line the roads into the port town of...

    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.

    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, its 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...

    Scotland last night gave a resounding endorsement to the EU as the UK overall voted for Brexit, raising the prospect of a demand for a second independence referendum. ..In the early hours, Alex Salmond was.. announcing that, if Scotland voted to remain but the UK overall voted to leave, Nicola Sturgeon would implement the SNP manifesto. The SNP document for last months Scottish election states that Holyrood should have the right to hold a second independence vote if there is a significant and material change in circumstances from 2014, such as Scotland being taken out of the EU against its...

    British voters chose to leave the European Union on Thursday, defying the polls and President Barack Obama, who had urged Britain to remain in the EU. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had also urged Britain to stay in the EU. Only Donald Trump had backed the campaign to leave Republican strategists had panned Trumps decision to travel to the UK in the midst of campaign turmoil, and in the wake of his blistering attack on Hillary Clinton earlier this week. Now, however, it looks like a risk that paid off handsomely, in the currency of foreign policy credibility....

    Why did they do it? That, well pick apart in the next few weeks. I think that Leave genuinely ran the better campaign, more hopeful and upbeat. Immigration mattered a great deal although one YouGov poll ranked it third behind democracy and the economy. Its possible that voters grasped the essential point about this referendum better than we the commentators did. It was a vote of confidence in Britain. Should we run our affairs or should we delegate it to foreign bureaucrats? When I was leaving my polling station, I said to a chap: I found voting quite emotional....

    England, our Fairest Isle, including Scotland and Wales, looks like one single place because it is one single place. It is surrounded on all sides by water, which marks its boundaries and colours the British soul. You may say that there is no such thing as the soul of England: We may imagine her as Britannia, but a country is not a person. The only corporate personality, I am reliably told by R. R. Reno, is the Church. Countries are not persons, said the Oracle. No, maybe notbut they are analogous to persons, and they have some analog of a...
