    The lessons of the Conquered. The British people are already essentially defeated; that they are more concerned about being called Islamophobic than actually doing anything to stop Islamic terrorism? And they are disarming their children, leading the sheep to slaughter. There may “always be an England?”Chaos and civil war. There may always be an England, but it will be a sharia state. Were the children at the Ariana Grande concert not sufficiently respectful enough? WRITE A LETTER TO TERRORISTS!

    Should you be wondering what the British reaction is to Donald Trump’s election and performance to date, rest assured that many Brexit voters see a kindred spirit in those that wish to break free from the elitist shackles. Many supporters of Brexit saw Trump’s election as a continuation of the revolution in politics that has begun sweeping the globe. In fact, many Brexiteers worried that a Clinton victory would have implications that could force to the UK to stay in the EU (Globalist do tend to stick together and as Obama stated “Britain would be at the back of the...

    The Church of England will be asked to denounce gay conversion, consider special services for transgender people and re-examine its teaching on marriage as between one man and one women in a raft of measures to be debated at its forthcoming General Synod meeting in July. In its first meeting since the surprise rejection of a bishops’ report recommending keeping the status quo on marriage, the CofE’s parliament will debate whether to join medical experts and condemn so-called ‘gay cures’ as ‘unethical, harmful’ and having ‘no place in the modern world’. Tabled by senior synod member Jayne Ozanne, the private...

    Can a Western welfare state defend itself against Islamic terrorism? Perhaps, but it will require fundamental changes. The Telegraph reports that last week’s terrorist attack in Manchester was funded by the British government:The Manchester suicide bomber used taxpayer-funded student loans and benefits to bankroll the terror plot, police believe.Salman Abedi is understood to have received thousands of pounds in state funding in the run up to Monday’s atrocity even while he was overseas receiving bomb-making training. Why? What qualified a terrorist in training for state aid? I suppose the answer is, anyone can get state funding these days, no serious...

    Thousands of patients across England and Scotland have been in limbo after an international cyber-attack hit the NHS, with many having operations cancelled at the last minute. Senior medics sought to reassure patients that they could be seen in the normal way in emergencies, but others were asked to stay away if possible. According to one junior doctor who works in a London hospital, the attack left hospitals struggling to care for people. “However much they pretend patient safety is unaffected, it’s not true. At my hospital we are literally unable to do any x-rays, which are an essential component...

    Let's get this out of the way: England's King Edward I was an ass. You may remember Longshanks from his villainous turn in Braveheart. Tall, forbidding, and bad-tempered, the 14th century monarch stomped his Welsh neighbors in submission, taxed the Irish into poverty, and stole money from his Jewish subjects, killing many of them and expelling the rest. When he was done with that he engineered a takeover of Scotland using tactics that would make Machiavelli blanch, including inflicting an unbelievably cruel death upon the leader of the Scots, William Wallace, that's familiar to movie fans.

    LONDON — In 2015, Britain’s Labour Party tacked to the left, repudiating the middle-way philosophy that had won it three elections under Tony Blair. Voters responded by handing the party its worst defeat in three decades. Rather than scramble back toward the center, Labour lurched further left. The party elected as its leader Jeremy Corbyn, a white-bearded baby boomer from the back benches who, like Bernie Sanders in the United States, ignited an improbable movement among young activists with his attacks on the rigged capitalist system and unquestioned fidelity to socialist ideals. Now, with less than six weeks to go...

    The Senior National Co-ordinator for Counter Terrorism has confirmed that police are now making terror-related arrests “on a near daily basis”. Meanwhile, a noted security expert has estimated the number of “committed Islamists” in the country is “between 6,000 and 10,000”. Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu revealed the astonishing scale of the struggle to contain terrorism in a statement outside New Scotland Yard on Friday. “I wanted to reassure the public that our increased activity to combat terrorism over the last two years continues,” he said. The statement came following an “extraordinary day” in which police apprehended a...

    Music from Thomas Tallis’s motet Gaude gloriosa was found buried in the walls of Corpus Christi College, Oxford, in 1978. Recently, the conductor David Skinner has identified the text as being by Henry VIII’s sixth and last queen Catherine Parr. The words are from Parr’s psalm paraphrase ‘Against Enemies’ in her first publication Psalms or Prayers, published in London in 1544, and were set as a contrafact of Tallis’s Gaude gloriosa Dei mater. The work will be performed at St John’s Smith Square London on Good Friday (14 April 2017). David Skinner says: ‘These discoveries are not only significant for cultural historians, but also fundamentally challenge...

    Heads bowed, they stood in silent respect on the pavements of Wootton Bassett and tossed roses onto the hearses carrying soldiers who fell in Afghanistan. This week, London was stilled and many moved to tears as the last post was played on a bugle over the casket of PC Keith Palmer. After the attack on Westminster, in which he gave his life defending parliament against a knife-wielding lunatic, flags were at half-mast while mountains of flowers marked the spot where he and others died. These are moments when the British agree, as a nation, to "Silence the pianos and with...
