    By the middle of the century, the “th” sound will have vanished from the English spoken in London due to the high level of immigrants who cannot pronounce it, linguists have said. In a study that shows the impact immigration is having on the English language, academics at the University of York say that Estuary English, the dialect currently spoken in London and south east England, will gradually be replaced by a heavily migrant-influenced English.

    A travel tip at the end of the magazine's latest cover story advised London visitors about going to neighborhoods with large populations of "Indians, Pakistanis and black people." The warning set off a storm of protest and prompted a British lawmaker to demand an apology from China's flag carrier. "London is generally a safe place to travel, however precautions are needed when entering areas mainly populated by Indians, Pakistanis and black people," said the passage, which was spotted by a CNBC journalist. "We advise tourists not to go out alone at night, and females always to be accompanied by another...

    This is the story of a city on knife's edge, riven by religious and political tensions, made vulnerable to disaster by its own neglect and avarice. It is a story of official blunders which turned a minor, commonplace accident into an all-consuming conflagration. It's a story of chaos, mass hysteria, profiteering and racist violence – but it is also a story of some heroism and charity, from royal and commoner alike. It unfolds over 72 hours, beginning at midnight on September 2, 1666, and ending at the climax of the fire's worse day. Of course, in an era without reliable...

Both incidents occurred on Monday in the neighborhood of Newham.

"We estimate fixed effects models at the sub-national level between 1950 and 2010 and find that increases in the number of universities are positively associated with future growth of GDP per capita (and this relationship is robust to controlling for a host of observables, as well as unobserved regional trends)," Anna Valero and John Van Reenen, of the London School of Economics, write in a working paper that they published this month at the National...

The process is expected to be completed by Sept. 9. The Conservative Party, which won a majority in Parliament last year, has a five-year mandate that lasts until 2020. But given the turmoil after voters decided that Britain...

The enormous surge followed the initial 100,000 signatures which were created in a bid to get London Mayor Sadiq Khan to declare the capital as independent. Protesters are hoping that Khan will call for London to be classed separately from the UK and therefore be able to apply to join the European Union.

    London-based banks HSBC Holdings Plc and Standard Chartered Plc tumbled in Hong Kong after early results from Britain’s European Union referendum indicated greater support for an exit than academics had forecast. HSBC, which made about a third of its 2015 revenue in Europe, fell as much as 3.1 percent and Standard Chartered as much as 3.7 percent. Financial institutions including JPMorgan Chase & Co., HSBC and Deutsche Bank AG warned ahead of Britain’s vote that they could shift some operations from London if the U.K. left the EU. HSBC would probably move about 1,000 investment bankers to Paris in the...

    Barack Obama has said a trade deal between the UK and US would be at the "back of the queue" if the UK left the European Union. The President said a free trade arrangement would not happen "any time soon" in the event of Brexit. Speaking alongside Prime Minister David Cameron at the Foreign Office, he said: "I think it's fair to say that maybe some point down the line there might be a UK-US trade agreement. "But it's not going to happen any time soon because our focus is in negotiating with a big bloc, the European Union, to...

    BRUSSELS: EU chiefs on Friday told Britain to start negotiations to quit the bloc "as soon as possible", after outgoing Prime Minister David Cameron said he would leave the negotiations to his successor. "We now expect the United Kingdom government to give effect to this decision of the British people as soon as possible, however painful that process may be," said a joint statement after Britons voted for a Brexit . "Any delay would unnecessarily prolong uncertainty." The statement was issued by EU president Donald Tusk, European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker, EU Parliament leader Martin Schulz and Dutch premier Mark...

    The polls in England are closing early due to rain. But most likely, they are told to close because the vote may be against the government. So this may be yet another dirty trick to deny the people any real democratic process. This is more likely than not going to increase civil unrest from here on out. Just stupid. This is the poster child for why people should vote online. But then again, how can government rig the elections if they cannot be in charge of counting the votes?

    Donald Trump leaves for Scotland Thursday, briefly escaping his turbulent presidential campaign to attend the official opening of a remodeled golf resort bearing his name. The foreign trip, Trump's first as the presumptive Republican nominee, will bear none of the traditional marks of the ritualistic campaign voyage abroad that White House hopefuls have embarked on in recent years. Trump is not slated to meet with any foreign leaders or visit historical sites but instead attend to his multibillion-dollar business interests. The trip -- an unconventional venture emblematic of the real estate mogul's campaign -- comes on the heels of the...

    Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II thinks European courts that protect Islamist hate preachers “denigrate” Britain and has demanded her dinner guests “Give me THREE good reasons” to remain inside the European Union (EU). The loaded challenge has been widely interpreted as an expression of Euroscepticism since the Royal biographer Robert Lacey made the revelation in a blog post in the Daily Beast. The EU and the European Court of Human Rights are known for their history of protecting the “rights” of extremists and blocking deportations. Last night Breitbart London revealed that Islamist hate preacher, terrorist apologist and Caliphate agitator Anjem...

The Kinopolis movie theater is located in Viernheim, approximately 40 miles south of Frankfurt. Police in the nearby city of Mannheim sent officers to support the operation, spokesman Norbert Schaetzle told reporters.
