    Nigel Farage’s Brexit election dream was at risk of being dashed on day one of his election campaign yesterday after three candidates quit and he lost support from a major financial backer. The Brexit Party leader came out all guns blazing on Monday claiming he would be unleashing 600 election candidates across the UK. But he was warned by senior Tories that he risked ‘splitting the Leave vote’ before two candidates withdrew over fears the Brexit Party could prevent Boris Johnson getting a majority. A third dropped out for personal reasons. Paul Brothwood stood aside in the marginal Dudley South...

    display of grassroots power, the Denver chapter of Democratic Socialists of America, or DSA, successfully convinced the Denver Democratic Party to endorse a key tenet of democratic socialism in their party platform. The party’s official platform now includes the following plank: We believe the economy should be democratically owned and controlled in order to serve the needs of the many, not to make profits for the few. The construction used here is similar to “for the many not the few,” the slogan used by the U.K.’s Labour Party. That party is currently run by Jeremy Corbyn, a committed socialist, who...

    A New York-born playwright is at the center of a British political scandal that could decide the country’s next prime minister. Eve Leigh — the lefty 34-year-old daughter of famed Broadway composer Mitch Leigh — and her husband admitted Saturday that they called the cops Friday about the plate-smashing row between frontrunner Boris Johnson and his live-in gal pal, Carrie Symonds, and then tipped off the press. News of the spat — during which Symonds, 31, allegedly asked Johnson to “get off me” and “get out of my flat” — has dominated UK politics in the days since, with Johnson,...

    Does Donald Trump want Jeremy Corbyn as his next partner in the US-UK relationship? Because this is precisely how you get more Jeremy Corbyn. In touting the potential for a post-Brexit trade agreement with the Brits, Trump told reporters that their National Health Service would have to be “on the table,” comments immediately seized upon by Labour: When asked if the NHS should be on the table for a post-Brexit trade deal, Donald Trump says "everything will be on table".Get live updates here: https://t.co/BbLjWva8ok pic.twitter.com/BDoQzGjjXn— Sky News (@SkyNews) June 4, 2019 U.S. President Donald Trump said Britain’s public health...
  • UK: Jews in fear after pro-Palestinian group supported by Jeremy Corbyn forces Jewish shops closed

    UK: Jews in fear after pro-Palestinian group supported by Jeremy Corbyn forces Jewish shops closed “British Jews have spoken of their fear after a pro-Palestine group supported by Jeremy Corbyn forced Jewish-owned shops to close by staging aggressive rallies outside them.” Corbyn also was recently ‘saluted’ by Hamas who thanked him for his support of a pro-Palestinian march. And three months ago, Corbyn stood up to block efforts by the UK Home Office to ban his “friends” Hizballah from the UK. How any freedom-loving, human rights supporting, Israel recognizing individual could possibly support the jihadist Palestinian cause given its infamous...
  • Repellent, chaotic and a serial liar, Boris Johnson would be a catastrophic prime minister

    You thought it couldn’t get worse? It certainly can. Britain now faces the very real prospect of Boris Johnson moving into N0 10 (with or without his current girlfriend). He would do so as the country faces its gravest crisis since the Second World War – a crisis of which he was a principal architect – and without having won a general election. He would have been chosen, quite preposterously, by fewer than 120,000 ageing, reactionary Tory party members. Rules are rules: the party with the most MPs selects the prime minister. But the Conservatives have no overwhelming popular mandate....

    Embedded video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=08COdZs0law British Labour MP Grahame Morris on Tuesday apologized for a post in which he claimed the IDF harmed children. In the post, Morris shared a video from 2015 which showed Guatemalan soldiers abusing a young and unarmed boy and commented: "Marvellous, absolutely marvellous the Israeli Army, the best financed, best trained, best equipped army in the world caught on camera beating up Palestinian children for the fun of it. May God forgive them. What would Jim Royle say on an Easter Monday." In response, the IDF tweeted: "The only marvellous thing here are your lies. These are...

    Back in 2015, a new M.P. from Streatham was among those running to replace Ed Miliband as leader of the Labour Party in Great Britain. This was Chuka Umunna, who suddenly pulled out, explaining that he didn’t want to put his wife through the ordeal of the campaign and his possible win. He worried, he said, about her loss of privacy. He was also 36 at the time, and may have felt unready; he knew he had plenty of time to prepare for a run. As it happens, the Labour Party then elected, by a landslide, the far-left ideologue Jeremy...
  • UK: Muslim rape gang gave 14-year-old drink and raped her repeatedly

    UK: Muslim rape gang gave 14-year-old drink and raped her repeatedly — “I was nothing but a toy to play with” Why does this keep happening? One survivor of a Muslim rape gang in the UK said that her rapists would quote Quran to her, and believed their actions justified by Islam. The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers...

    Seven Labour lawmakers quit on Monday over leader Jeremy Corbyn’s approach to Brexit and a row over anti-Semitism, saying Britain’s main opposition party had been “hijacked by the machine politics of the hard left”. In a direct challenge to Corbyn, the seven centrist MPs said they were courting others from across parliament to join their group, saying “enough is enough” in keeping silent over their doubts about the Labour leader’s fitness for office. United by a desire for a second referendum on Britain’s decision to leave the European Union, now that the likely terms of the divorce are known, they...

    Labour MPs have been told to prepare for Jeremy Corbyn to table a dramatic and immediate vote of no confidence in Theresa May’s government as early as Tuesday evening in an attempt to force a general election if – as expected – she suffers a heavy defeat this week on her Brexit deal. Messages have been sent to Labour MPs, even those who are unwell, to ensure their presence both for the “meaningful vote” on the prime minister’s Brexit blueprint on Tuesday and the following day. Labour whips have told MPs the no-confidence vote is likely to be tabled within...

    The UK Labour Party has been charged with spewing anti-Semitic sentiments in recent years. In a 2013 speech at the Palestinian Return Center in London, for instance, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the following: Where, then, lies the grievance with Corbyn? At that meeting on Sunday, Jewish Labourites were not opposing the party leader for championing the Palestinians. They were opposing him for, to take one example, his 2013 attack on a group of “Zionists” he’d encountered, where he tackled them not on their arguments but on ethnic grounds, noting that despite “having lived in this country for a very...

    British Home Secretary Sajid Javid on Sunday suggested that Jeremy Corbyn should quit as Labour leader following controversy over his visit to a cemetery in Tunisia containing memorials to Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) terrorists, the Daily Mail reports. Questions were raised over Corbyn’s 2014 trip after the Daily Mail published pictures of the Labour leader holding a wreath near the graves of some of those terrorists who were responsible for the massacre of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics. Labour said that Corbyn had already made clear he was paying his respects to the victims of a 1985 Israeli...

    Talks between Jeremy Corbyn and the Jewish Museum in London on a speech by the leader of the British Labour Party have broken down. The party, beset by allegations of anti-Semitism, approached the Jewish Museum with a plan to host a speech on the issue, the London-based Jewish Chronicle first reported on Thursday. Corbyn also has been fighting accusations of harboring anti-Semitic sentiments. But on Friday the Chronicle reported the speech was off following a disagreement over who would be invited to attend. Last month, the party’s ruling body and leadership endorsed a code of conduct that is based on...

    Theresa May taunted Jeremy Corbyn that he had 'failed' today after the Tories held key London seats in local elections and made gains in other parts of the country. In the biggest test of public opinion since the general election, Labour's efforts to wrest the strongholds of Westminster, Wandsworth and Barnet from the Tories fell flat. In Barnet, where Labour needed just one seat to secure control, the Tories entrenched their position - with defeated councillors launching a furious attack on Mr Corbyn for failing to get a grip on the anti-Semitism crisis. Labour also came up short in crucial...

    UNITED KINGDOM, March 23, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Despite his years of denouncing religion, Richard Dawkins does not welcome a European future without Christianity. On Wednesday, the atheist author and evolutionary biologist warned those inclined to “rejoice at the death throes of the relatively benign Christian religion” to keep in mind the danger of "something worse" taking its place. That worse alternative, Dawkins suggests, is Islam, which he has previously called “the most evil religion in the world.” Dawkins was reacting to a Guardian report on recent polling that shows 70% of people in the United Kingdom between the ages of...

    British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn on Monday wrote to Jewish leaders that he is a “militant opponent” of anti-Semitism. Corbyn’s letter to the Board of Deputies and Jewish Leadership Council came after British Jewish leaders sent an open letter to the Labour party in which they wrote that Corbyn had “sided with anti-Semites rather than Jews.” The letter sent to Member of Parliament John Cryer, chair of the Parliamentary Labour Party, said, “Today, leaders of British Jewry tell Jeremy Corbyn that enough is enough. We have had enough of hearing that Jeremy Corbyn ‘opposes anti-Semitism,’ whilst the mainstream majority of...

    Theresa May’s government has admitted that “a significant portion” of the more than 400 Islamic State fighters who have returned to Britain are at large, unpunished, having been deemed “no longer of national security concern”. The admission came in response to a question in the House of Commons by Labour MP John Woodcock, who demanded to know why the Government is refusing to release figures on the number of returned jihadists being prosecuted, despite having previously provided them. “Are more than 400 of those returning individuals in jail or going through the court system? We simply do not know, because...

    THE Tories’ seeming election disaster has come at the hands of the Millennial generation they ignored for too long. The recent infatuation with Jeremy Corbyn’s extremism cannot be put down to the normal tradition of young people leaning to the Left. For decades he was a joke figure in the Labour Party, an irrelevant throwback to failed political ideals discredited worldwide since the collapse of the Soviet bloc. But in the past two years his ideas and popularity have been turbo-charged by an economic system in which far too many of the Millennial generation have no stake. Their wages have...
