    Meteor to be carried by the F-35 from 2024. Note the clipped tail fins required for internal carriage. Illustration: MBDA The United Kingdom is preparing its F-35 Lightning II to carry and operate the Meteor Beyond Visual Range Air-to-Air Missile (BVRAAM) as its principal long-range air/air weapon. The UK MOD awarded today a Ł41 million contract to the missile developer MBDA for the integration of the missile on the new aircraft. The Meteor will provide the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy with one of the most advanced air/air missile of its class, that can engage with targets moving at...

    LONDON, England, April 13, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — A UK judge has ruled it is in a child's best interest to “die with dignity” rather than to allow his parents to seek additional medical treatment. Connie Yates and Chris Gard want to take eight-month-old son Charlie to the United States for treatment of a rare disease. A GoFundMe account has given them enough money to do so. But Charlie needs to remain on life support to make the trip and Justice Francis determined it is in the "best interests of the child" to withdraw his feeding tube and breathing machine. Charlie...

    Miley Cyrus and numerous other American celebrities threatened to move out of the country to avoid living under newly-elected President Trump. As the Mirror reports, other famous female faces who can’t stand the thought of a reality show star running the free world include Amy Schumer, Cher, and Lena Dunham. Schumer said she would move to Spain if Trump won the presidency, while Cher proclaimed that she would move even farther away from America by catching a flight to Jupiter. Lena Dunham and Neve Campbell decided they would stay a little closer to Hollywood by heading to Canada, and Miley...
  • This desolate English path has killed more than 100 people

    If you consult a large-scale map of the Essex coastline between the River Crouch and the River Thames, you will see a footpath – its route marked with a stitch-line of crosses and dashes – leaving the land at a place called Wakering Stairs and then heading due east, straight out to sea. Several hundred yards offshore, it curls northeast and runs in this direction for around three miles, still offshore, before cutting back to make landfall at Fisherman’s Head, the uppermost tip of a large, low-lying and little-known marshy island called Foulness.This is the Broomway, allegedly “the deadliest” path...

    If those migrants were all adjusting well to live in Great Britain and embracing British culture, this would not be a problem: Britain is set to become the most populous European country by 2050 because of migrant numbers, official figures have revealed. Eurostat, the European Union’s statistical office, predicted the British population to increase by at least 13million – from 64.6 million in 2015 to 77.1 million in 2050. Those numbers collapse completely if migrants aren't included, which would cause another set of problems. For instance, the welfare state would become unaffordable. Having said that, it's not necessarily true that...
  • WHAT DO WE DO WITH A SHRUNKEN NAVY? Royal Navy has been reduced to a ‘historic low’ number

    THE Royal Navy has been allowed to shrink to a “dangerous and historic low” leaving it unable to combat global threats, MPs will warn today. A Defence Select Committee report says Britain will one day be unable to defend its shores unless it increases its “pathetic” fleet of 19 frigates and destroyers. Only 17 frigates are usable and the MoD is still negotiating on designs and contracts over the construction of replacement vessels IMAGE: ROYAL NAVY Only 17 are usable and the MoD is still negotiating on designs and contracts over the construction of replacement vessels.

    The National Interest ^ | November 12, 2016 | Michael Peck
    When someone mentions a list of the best tanks in history, the names are always the same: Tiger, T-34, M-1 Abrams. And always from the same nations: Germany, Russia, America. But great tanks from Great Britain? Though the British were the ones to develop armored fighting vehicles in World War I, British tanks of the Second World War can generally be described in one word: awful. There were tanks that could barely move without breaking down. Tanks that were fast but too thinly armored, or heavily armored but too slow. Tanks with radios that didn’t work. Tanks with guns that...

    Work to build eight 'sub hunter' combat ships will begin in the summer of next year, it has been announced. Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon said the construction of the 'next generation' Type 26 Frigate will secure hundreds of jobs on the Clyde for two decades. They will also be armed with the Sea Ceptor anti-missile system under a Ł100million contract confirmed by the government. But the cutting-edge project has already been blighted by delays, with the original intention having been for work on 13 ships to start earlier this year. Speaking during a visit to the Govan area of...

    (BREITBART) A Islamic preacher who has referred to non-Muslims as “kuffar” and preached on how to kill homosexuals is due to deliver a set of nightly lectures at an Iranian government-backed organisation in London, Breitbart London can reveal. Shaykh Hamza Sodagar – who gained notoriety earlier this year for his lecture on “one of five” ways to kill homosexuals – is due to speak at the Islamic Republic of Iran School in north-west London between October 4th – 12th. According to a speaker biography, Mr. Sodagar regards himself as a “role model” for “young Muslims all around the world”. A...

    Hulls of the new Ł31billion Trident submarines will be built with steel provided by a FRENCH firm. BAe Systems, building the subs in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, opted for a French supplier after signing a contract with the UK government. The deal, which The Mirror reports will be worth tens of millions, came after a plan between two British firms to make a joint bid for the work flopped. The Defence Secretary announced work on the new nuclear deterrent will begin today as the first pictures of Ł31billion Trident submarines were unveiled. Sir Michael Fallon said he will officially mark the start...

    According to newly released official stats, the six vessels clocked up 1,515 days in British docks in the year to this April. Four of the state-of-the-art ships remained berthed for more than 300 days each, the data obtained from a Freedom of Information request shows. Former head of the Navy Admiral Lord West said there was a "desperate need" to get the destroyers "out and doing their job". He said: "We are using Royal Fleet Auxiliary and offshore protection vessels to do jobs that historically would have been done with frigates or destroyers." The Ministry of Defence (MoD) insisted the...

    Leaflets have reportedly been distributed in Manchester calling for a public ban on dogs, in order to keep the area pure for Muslims. But while some have claimed the leaflets are a hoax designed to stir up tensions, others are convinced the leaflets are being created by fundamentalist Muslims. Residents in Manchester have taken to social media to report that they have received leaflets through their letterboxes calling on them to “have respect for us and our children” by not taking dogs out in public. “This area is home to a large Muslim community,” the leaflet advises, before explaining that...

    Britain used to boast the most powerful navy in the world. No more. That’s a serious problem for allies like the United States. Traditionally, Britain’s Royal Navy has been the U.S. Navy's closest partner. The two have fought together against most every foe. So any weakening of the Royal Navy also erodes Washington's naval power. Today, however, the Royal Navy is a shadow of its former self. Government budgeteers have repeatedly, and excessively, cut the numbers of its ships, planes and manpower. It can barely patrol the United Kingdom’s own waters, much less project British influence abroad. Though London officials...

    "UNPRECEDENTED": HMS Duncan is one of the six powerful warships currently docked at Portsmouth Six Ł1billion Type 45 Destroyers - described as the backbone of Britain's marine defences - are not on operations, the Ministry of Defence has confirmed. One senior Navy insider told how out was "almost unprecedented" that all the vessels should be docked. And the fact all six were in port at once could suggest "a gross lack of planning" or indicate "something more serious", the source warned Sky News. An insider revealed the ships had "just got back from operations, are about to go on operations...

    A new fleet of frigates, described as “global combat ships” designed to play crucial roles, has been delayed indefinitely, the Ministry of Defence has said in testy exchanges with MPs over huge financial and technical problems facing the navy’s surface vessels. Delays in building the Type 26 frigates – a project promised by David Cameron before the 2014 Scottish independence referendum – is threatening shipbuilding jobs on the Clyde in Scotland. The project’s problems come on top of serious mechanical failures in the navy’s new fleet of Type 45 destroyers. Key tasks of the navy’s frigates and destroyers include protecting...

    A study released by the Pew Research Center on Monday shows a startling development in European attitudes towards Middle Eastern refugees. In eight of the ten countries surveyed, majorities of citizens polled believe incoming refugees increase the likelihood of terrorism at home. Respondents in Hungary, Poland, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Greece, and the United Kingdom all responded that they believe incoming refugees increase the risk of terrorism. Respondents in Hungary are most likely (at 76 percent) to believe incoming refugees increase the risk of terrorism, while respondents in Spain are the least likely to believe incoming refugees increase the likelihood of terrorism (at 40...

    During the Bretton Woods Conference, in 1944, Lord Halifax is said to have “whispered to Lord Keynes: ‘It’s true: they have the money bags but we have all the brains.’” By “they,” Halifax meant the Americans. His frustration with the American mind—often prosaic and anti-intellectual—during the critical Bretton-Woods negotiations seems as valid today. As odious as Britain’s elites are; boy, are they cleverer than ours. Take the impromptu interview, on June 28, which Richard Quest, CNN’s imported British broadcast journalist, conducted with Nigel Farage, leader of the UK Independence Party. Farage had emerged exhilarated from the coven that is the...
