  • British Police Force Uses ‘Positive Action’ to Ban White Men from Recruitment Workshops

    Breitbart ^ | October 12, 2017 | Jack Montgomery
    The British Transport Police are disadvantaging white, male applicants by excluding them from recruitment workshops. The force is holding the workshops in London, Manchester, and Birmingham — but one would-be officer was turned away after being told they were for “women and black or ethnic minority” candidates only, reports The Metro. “I am a white heterosexual male and also a member of the armed forces, how can a public service blatantly support this kind of discrimination and inequality in 2017?” he told the newspaper. “I am going to withdraw my application due to having been treated in such a manner.” Metro’s correspondent Harley Tamplin seemed...
  • Why the EU sucks! Vacuum cleaner tycoon Sir James Dyson reveals (TR)

    Sir James Dyson is lithe, rangy, tanned, beadily alert and, despite never using his own award-winning Supersonic dryer, boasts gloriously fluffy hair. ‘It blows my hair to smithereens and gives too much root uplift,’ he says. This week he was particularly busy, even by his exactingly high standards as Britain’s best-known inventor. On Wednesday, fed up with trying to get politicians to do something about the dire lack of engineers in this country, he opened a university to train them; the Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology. And, oh yes, he took on Jean-Claude Juncker. When the European Commission president...
  • Why prisoners turn to God

    UK Catholic Herald ^ | 31 Aug 2017 | Theodore Dalrymple
    Religion offers the fresh start many are looking for. For the first time, according to a recent report, Catholics outnumber Anglicans in British prisons. Whereas half of prisoners were Anglicans in 1993, only 17 per cent now are. There were 270 more Catholic prisoners in British prisons than Anglicans a couple of months ago, and nearly as many Muslims, the figures being 14,961, 14,691, and 13,100 respectively. There were 26,443 prisoners who claimed to be of no religion. This latter figure explains in part the fall in the number of Anglicans: it used to be that if a prisoner said...

    British drivers will face extra checks when renting cars and vans to ensure they are not extremists in the wake of a string of deadly terror attacks using vehicles. Ministers are ordering the crackdown amid growing concern over how easily extremists are renting vehicles and using them to mow down pedestrians in attacks. It comes after 14 people were killed when terrorists ploughed into passersby in Barcelona and seaside town of Cambrils on Thursday. This year in the UK, vehicles have been at the centre of deadly attacks on Westminster, London Bridge and Finsbury Park. The incidents sparked suggestions van...
  • Bank of England to keep animal fat in banknotes despite complaints

    The Guardian ^ | August 10, 2017 | Julia Kollewe
    The Bank of England has decided to stick to plastic banknotes despite complaints from vegans and religious groups that they contain tallow, an animal byproduct. The central bank concluded after “careful and serious consideration and extensive public consultation” that switching to palm oil alternatives would be costly and raise questions about environmental sustainability. A row broke out over the use of animal fat in the new plastic fiver last November, and a petition was launched calling for the use of tallow to be stopped. The petition said the use of animal fat was “unacceptable to millions of vegans, vegetarians, Hindus,...

    Telegraph ^ | April 20, 1968 | Enoch Powell
    The supreme function of statesmanship is to provide against preventable evils. In seeking to do so, it encounters obstacles which are deeply rooted in human nature. One is that by the very order of things such evils are not demonstrable until they have occurred: at each stage in their onset there is room for doubt and for dispute whether they be real or imaginary. By the same token, they attract little attention in comparison with current troubles, which are both indisputable and pressing: whence the besetting temptation of all politics to concern itself with the immediate present at the expense...

    Michael Savage is one of the greatest American radio commentators, and he is one of the top people in the country who got Trump elected. And yet, Savage is also one of the few with the courage to criticize Trump when ( in Savage's eyes ) Trump is backing off of his promises or taking us down a questionable or wrong road. As you probably know, for 8 years Savage has been banned by the UK government from traveling to the UK. Savage is grouped with other people being banned such murderers, rapists, and Islamic terrorists -- and high insult...

    John McDonnell tried to weaken our cash-strapped military by allowing taxpayers to 'opt out' of helping to fund them, it has been revealed. Records from the House of Commons show that in 2014 the Shadow Chancellor proposed a motion to allow voters direct the portion of their income tax that goes towards defence into a 'non-military security fund'. In 1999 the longtime Corbyn ally tried to change the law so taxpayers could divert the money spent on defence into foreign aid. Armed Forces minister Mike Penning told the Sun: 'Security would be at risk with John McDonnell holding the purse...

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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

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.

    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...
