    A 15-year-old girl was prevented from joining the terror group Isil after police dramatically stopped her plane on the runway at Heathrow. The youngster, from Tower Hamlets, London, had secretly saved up money for her flight without her parents’ knowledge and tried to flee to Syria. But counter-terrorism officers, who had been tipped over about her plans, raced to the airport and stopped her plane which had already begun taxiing on to the runway. The flight, which was heading to Turkey, was turned around while officers took the youngster off and returned her to her family. However, in an unrelated...

    Anti-abortion protesters are filmed being confronted by a local resident outside a London clinic, where a pregnant woman delivered a plea last week insisting they should stop "judging" women. VIDEO ON LINK Pro-choice protesters turned out with banners saying "my body, my choice", against campaign group Abort67, after Labour's shadow home secretary called for buffer zones around the clinics in a bid to protect women. Yvette Cooper said on Monday that she did not "want the kind of harassment and abuse that we've seen in the US imported in Britain". However, Lyndall Stein, who has visited the clinic for the...

    Why can't the majority of black people and the rioters accept that the reason blacks are much more likely to get into trouble with the police is because they are much more likely to commit criminal acts, both serious and petty, and the reason they are much more likely to be harmed is because of the way they interact with the police, resisting arrest or even assaulting the officers? The question is rhetorical. They don't accept this because it's always difficult for every human being to recognise one's faults - or, as in this case, the faults of the...

    The number of people in the UK infected with HIV has reached an all-time high, new figures show. Nearly 110,000 are living with the condition, but around a quarter are unaware they have it. They are therefore at risk of passing on the virus to others through unprotected sex, experts warn.  The figures, from Public Health England (PHE), have been released ahead of National HIV Testing Week. They show that overall, more people are being diagnosed earlier. The proportion of people diagnosed with a late stage of HIV infection fell from 57 per cent in 2004 to 42 per cent...

    The administration confirmed over the weekend that US aid worker Peter Kassig was recently killed by beheading. He is the fifth Westerner to be murdered on camera by the British accented representative of the Islamic State known as “Jihadi John.” British authorities indicated the formerly anonymous ISIS killer is suspected to be 23-year-old Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, a U.K. citizen of Egyptian descent and an amateur rapper from West London. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Bary has been an active malcontent for some time. A video recently surfaced of the suspected ISIS militant speaking with an Australian television reporter during the London riots...

    The examination to become a London cabbie is possibly the most difficult test in the world — demanding years of study to memorize the labyrinthine city’s 25,000 streets and any business or landmark on them. As GPS and Uber imperil this tradition, is there an argument for learning as an end in itself? At 10 past 6 on a January morning a couple of winters ago, a 35-year-old man named Matt McCabe stepped out of his house in the town of Kenley, England, got on his Piaggio X8 motor scooter, and started driving north. McCabe’s destination was Stour Road, a...

On October 17, 1814, one of the metal hoops meant to secure it snapped, and the wooden vat succumbed to the immense pressure of all that fermenting brew. The gushing beer smashed open the brewery's other vats, resulting in a raging sea of beer that burst forth from the building.Over one...

Tibi is talking with British MPs of the Labour Party, whose member Grahame Morris proposed the vote, and trying to convince them that voting to recognize the Palestinian Authority (PA) as a state will advance the “peace process.” In fact, the Labour Party is reportedly highly divided over the vote, with many senior members of the...

The pitch is aimed at convincing Americans of the merits of Russia Today - or RT - as an alternate news source to U.S. networks. Featuring a stylized image of former U.S Secretary of State Colin Powell at the United Nations, one ad reads: "This is what happens when there is no second opinion.

"Yiddo" is also regularly heard at matches involving Tottenham, whose fans argue that the terms are used as a 'badge of honor' in response to anti-Semitic behavior from rival fans rather than in a derogatory way.

    Terror alerts, 9/11-style bombings and murders of British citizens will soon come to London's streets, according to chilling threats from UK citizens fighting alongside Islam's most violent terrorist group operating in Syria and Iraq. The threat comes from British nationals fighting for the Sunni militant group calling themselves the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL/ISIS) in Syria. According to the Sunday Times, they promise that after they're done there, Britain is next. The message comes from three such fighters, all youngsters in their teens and twenties. According to the Times, these aren't regular disenchanted youths at all: one...

    Pro-life campaigners have been threatened with arrest under a draconian ‘riot law’ for holding prayer vigils outside an abortion clinic. Police used legislation which is commonly used to disperse rioters and football hooligans to force three campaigners to move away from the clinic on two separate occasions over the past six weeks. Officers issued the group, who try to persuade women to keep their unborn babies, with Section 14 Public Order Act notices. The strongly worded notice, which was used on both occasions, read: ‘I believe the intention of the organisers is the intimidation of others with a view to...

    The U.S. corporate tax code has come under far more scrutiny than Pfizer in the wake of the giant drug maker’s announcement last week that it hopes to avoid billions of dollars in federal taxes by moving its legal address to London. “The quotes we’ve seen from the politicians so far don’t in any way seem to be criticizing Pfizer. They’re laying the blame on the tax system that Pfizer has to work with,” said corporate tax expert Robert Willens. “Historically the company itself got blamed,” Willens added. “There’s been a shift in that dynamic. Now the system seems to...

    Lloyds Bank has been accused of religious discrimination after offering free overdraft accounts to Muslims. The bank sent customers a booklet this month explaining new charges. While many will have to pay up to £80 a month if they go into the red, Muslims were told they would escape the charges. The document said: “We are removing the monthly overdraft management fee of £6 from our Islamic Account, Islamic Student Account and Islamic Graduate Account. So, if you use an unplanned overdraft on these accounts, there won’t be any charges.” One customer, Anita Milton, a nurse of New Eltham, south...

    The British Medical Association (BMA), the trade union representing all National Health Service (NHS) doctors, has said that the sale of cigarettes should be banned "to anyone born after the year 2000". In a new policy position of the organisation which claims to lobby Parliament in its members' interest, the BMA has stated that "humanity has never developed anything more deadly than the cigarette". Dr Crocker-Buqué, a "London research assistant in academic public health" reportedly told last week's BMA annual public health medicine conference that eight in 10 smokers started in their teenage years and that someone who started smoking...
