    Mirror, U.K. ^ | 25 JUL 2016 | KIRSTIE MCCRUM
    The Royal Navy is suffering a recruitment crisis when it comes to staffing Trident submarines - as young people are too addicted to Facebook to go off-tech for weeks at a time. Following a vote to renew the nuclear submarines which passed through Parliament last week, those serving say that a scheme designed to attract new blood has faltered. And a senior source says this is down to the fact that "you cannot Facebook your friends". Last month, the annual report from the Ministry of Defences’s internal watchdog, the Defence Nuclear Safety Regulator, warned of a shortfall of qualified engineers,...

    He said the final published version of the report promoted the labour market case for immigration but unpublished versions contained additional reasons, he said. He wrote: "Earlier drafts I saw also included a driving political purpose: that mass immigration was the way that the Government was going to make the UK truly multicultural. "I remember coming away from some discussions with the clear sense that the policy was intended – even if this wasn't its main purpose – to rub the Right's nose in diversity and render their arguments out of date." The "deliberate policy", from late 2000 until "at...

    State government figures spearheading an effort to obtain documents from scientists and researchers who dissent from the Obama administration’s position on climate change are being asked, once again, to come clean about their relationships with environmental organizations. But this time around, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey have only two weeks to comply with a demand for information from a House committee that the two Democrats have resisted previously. That’s because the demand comes in the form of subpoenas issued Wednesday to Schneiderman, Healey, and eight environmental advocacy groups. The House Committee on Science,...

    Incoming Prime Minister Theresa May has driven a stake through the heart of her predecessor David Cameron’s fluffy, faux-Conservative project by scrapping the Department of Energy And Climate Change (DECC). Established in 2008, DECC was a hangover from the Gordon Brown era of woeful misgovernance. Its first Secretary of State was future failed Labour leader candidate Ed Miliband whose only significant political achievement also happened to be one of the most expensive and pointless in British parliamentary history: the drafting of the truly disastrous Climate Change Act.

    After a tumultuous few weeks in British politics, Theresa May officially became Britain's prime minister on Wednesday. The day was full of tradition and pomp. Her predecessor, David Cameron, traveled to Buckingham Palace to formally tender his resignation to Queen Elizabeth II and announce May as his successor. The queen then met May at the palace, asked her if she can form a government and then formally asked her to do so. May became the 13th prime minister to air-kiss the hand of the queen, who is 90 years old. But aside from all the pageantry, there's some serious weight...

    Some Muslim parents would not speak out if their children went to Syria to fight with terrorists, according to a new study conducted in Birmingham. Muslim parents told academics they feared police would arrest family members who traveled to Syria. The academics who conducted the study said the results indicated historical levels of mistrust between the police and Muslim communities. Focus groups were conducted by Dr. Imran Awan and Dr. Surinder Guru with Muslim parents, to explore how they view West Midlands Police counter-terrorism strategies.

    Britain has big plans for its F-35s, but whether they are affordable remains a big question. Minister for defense procurement Philip Dunne claimed last week that, apart from the U.S., the UK “will be the only other nation that can project power.” But to meet that ambition, the defense budget must by the early 2020s cover the cost of buying and operating two new 70,000-ton aircraft carriers, and at least two squadrons of F-35Bs—the most expensive version of the stealth jet to buy and fly. Moreover, those F-35s are priced in dollars, against which the British pound has just sunk...

    The Canadian dollar has posted gains on Monday session, continuing the upward trend which marked the Friday. USD/CAD is trading at 1.2860. The Canadian dollar posted strong gains on Friday, which was somewhat surprising as Canadian markets were closed for Canada Day. US markets are closed on Monday for Independence Day, so there are no scheduled US events. Canada will publish Manufacturing PMI and the BoC Business Outlook Survey. With the financial markets understandably focused on the stunning Brexit vote, the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy has shifted to the back-burner. That could change later this week, with the release of...

    Which is why the elite don't see what the problem is To listen to the howling and wailing from the political and media elites, you’d think the British people were forcing their government to close all the hospitals and burn all the schools down. The reaction to Britain’s exit from the European Union has been that over-the-top hysterical. The British Empire survived for many centuries before anyone ever conceived of the EU – which was only established in 1993 – and I think it can probably do just fine once again not being a member of it. But you’d never...

    German manufacturers last night demanded that Britain be allowed to continue trading with the EU without any barriers. The car-making industry said punishing Britain makes no sense – and it called on the German chancellor to give the UK a favourable trade deal. Eurosceptics have repeatedly argued it is not in the EU’s interests to bring in tariffs as the UK imports more from Europe than it exports, and any weakening of the British economy would also have a ripple effect on Europe. Matthias Wissmann, of the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA), said: ‘Even if many “experts” are...

Yes, had he not angered so many UK voters with his "back of the line (queue)" crack if they left, the outcome might have been different. Once again this narcissist wannabe king of the world was rebuked in Great Britain with his insults and threats if Great Britain left the European Union. This guy is delusional! Of course once again our mainstream media completely ignores this embarrassment to America. I just thought everyone...

    At the heart of the common sense information surrounding the Brexit vote a few ordinary and uncomfortable points continue to be avoided by the echo-chambered media elite who have retreated to their safe spaces:♦ First Point – The U.K. was sending Brussels $500 million per week of their wealth to be redistributed to the lesser than affiliates.  In essence, Classic Fabian/Socialist Economics: From each according to their ability – to each according to their need.Simultaneously, to the parasitic withdrawal – inbound immigration was putting unsustainable financial strain on the social/societal welfare systems if the host.♦ Second Point – Inbound, seemingly...

    American Rattlesnake ^ | June 25, 2016 | Gerard Perry
    One of the main takeaways from the EU Referendum is the chasm which exists between the British electorate and the people who purport to represent them in Westminster. To get an idea of what this looks like, you need only glance at the list of MPs who opposed Brexit, which includes nearly every single Labour member of the House of Commons, and compare it to the electoral map of UK on the day after the vote. Even if the hatred of ordinary, working class voters expressed by the BBC is muted in the monologues of Labour politicians, the antipathy for...

He said: “Of course a new prime minister must be appointed, that will probably require a few days but this is quite urgent.

    The Costa Rica Star ^ | 06/24/2016 | Jaime Lopez
    Over the last few months, the tourism industry of Costa Rica has enjoyed an increase of British and European visitors thanks to the inauguration of two flights from London, but officials fear that this joy will be diminished by Brexit. The people of the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, which means that European tourists can no longer easily travel to London to catch a flight to Costa Rica. At a press conference following the Brexit referendum, the president of Costa Rica’s National Chamber of Tourism (Spanish acronym: CANATUR) mentioned that the new situation is dispiriting since our...
