    In Great Britain, extraordinary measures are being taken to ensure compliance with a nationwide shutdown order. From Breitbart: Humberside Police in northern England has built a website for citizens to inform on their neighbours for violating the government’s rules on daily exercise and social distancing. You can only go for one walk a day. If you go out twice, you can be reported to the police. People’s worst instincts are coming to the fore. This is what amazed me: the Derbyshire police have sent drones out, to catch citizens going for unauthorized walks. When the current madness is behind us,...

    In August of 2018, the British Authorities raided a small shop operation in Sussex, England. The small shop was producing clandestine pistols for the UK black market. About a year later, two men associated with the operation were sent to prison. A third man had died while in custody. From the news coverage, considerable more details about the shop and arms produced were released.  There is a video on Youtube that reveals much. The pistols produced were simplified copies of the Browning 1922 design. Semi-automatic pistols are not difficult to make but are harder to make work well than sub-machine...

    February 17, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Jewish leaders in the U.K. have stated that they will oppose educational authorities and not allow their schools to teach about homosexual and other “lifestyles” that are “prohibited by the Torah.” Chinuch U.K., an organization that represents Britain’s main strictly Orthodox Jewish communities, has “issued a defiant challenge to the government by insisting their schools cannot discuss LGBT-related issues with pupils,” according to The Jewish Chronicle. The statement was reportedly prompted by recent visits to Jewish schools by government inspectors, who made it clear that primary schools have to teach children about LGBT “equality.” In...

    The number of late term abortions carried out past 24 week’s gestation on UK children with Down’s syndrome have doubled in the past 10 years, recent figures have revealed. Michael Robinson, SPUC Director of Communications said: “It is barbaric that a child who may have a disability in the UK can be aborted right up to birth. This practice has no place in a civilised society.” The recent figures, obtained in response to a parliamentary question by Lord Alton, have revealed that in 2018, the number of UK children aborted past 24 weeks gestation following a possible Down’s syndrome diagnosis...

The woman, who cannot be identified, gave evidence from the witness box at Worcester Crown Court yesterday, telling the jury that Richard Hirschfield raped her on a fire escape in the city 22 years ago. Declining the use of a screen, the complainant said she was 16 and a ‘vulnerable’ and ‘troubled’ girl when she was raped outside the former Midland Shire Farmers building in The Butts in July 1998. But the 43-year-old defendant of Dilmore...

    Plans to put ten million electric vehicles on the road within ten years and rip gas central heating from every home are unveiled today. Energy regulator Ofgem has outlined how the nation will have to change the way it travels and heats homes to meet the Government’s target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050. The radical scheme to ‘greenwire’ Britain will be built around plans for a four-fold increase in electricity from wind farms around the coast. But the proposals will largely be paid for by families and businesses, adding billions of pounds to bills over the next 30...

    Prince Andrew was so close to Jeffrey Epstein’s accused madam Ghislaine Maxwell he would secretly let her into Buckingham Palace up to four times a day, his former police protection officer claims. Former London cop Paul Page told the Sunday Mirror that even before the Epstein scandal blew up from his child-sex conviction, Maxwell’s visits to the palace were kept hush-hush. “We’ve got a guest coming for Andrew but the name is not to be entered in the book,” Page claims he was told by the Palace’s property managers the first time he saw Maxwell visit in 2001. “Half an...

    Are they, really? You bet. In workplaces? Not just any workplace, but arguably one of the world’s most powerful offices — although its power is seen to be rapidly diminishing. Which office is this? The political team at No 10, Downing Street; the office of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Are you calling Boris a weirdo and a misfit? There are many who will agree with that characterisation. But I was referring instead to an unconventional ‘recruitment’ ad that is inviting “weirdos and misfits with odd skills” to apply to work at the heart of the British government. Tell me...

    Downing Street received a delivery of English sparkling wine today as the Queen rubber-stamped Boris Johnson's Brexit Bill into law. Parliament finally gave its formal backing to the European Union Withdrawal Agreement Bill last night. The draft legislation, which is needed to ensure the UK's departure from the bloc is an orderly one, was then sent to the Queen to be given Royal Assent. Royal Assent from the monarch is the last stage a bill must pass in order to make it onto the statute book. Now that it has been given, the so-called WAB is officially an Act of...
