    Extinction Rebellion is planning to bring more chaos to London with another two weeks of disruption in the run-up to Christmas. Climate change protestors claim they will target busy shopping and tourist hubs in the capital, including Oxford Circus and Trafalgar Square, over the festive period. Organisers are plotting another fortnight of disorder over encrypted messaging apps WhatsApp and Telegram. It comes after the group's 'Autumn Uprising' brought London to a standstill, with Tube protests at Canning Town, a camp out at Smithfield meat market and blockades at City Airport.

    LONDON – The British government insisted on Sunday the country will leave the European Union on Oct. 31 despite a letter that Prime Minister Boris Johnson was forced by parliament to send to the bloc requesting a Brexit delay. The Brexit maelstrom has spun wildly in the past week between the possibility of an orderly exit on Oct. 31 with a deal that Johnson struck on Thursday and a delay after he was forced to ask for an extension late on Saturday. Johnson’s defeat in the British parliament over the sequencing of the ratification of his deal exposed the prime...

    General Michael Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell a few days ago requested that the DOJ turn over the contents of two phones related to Joseph Mifsud.  We now know those phones were from the UK, the country that is more suspect than Russia ever was! Sidney Powell on Tuesday demanded the DOJ “produce evidence that has only recently come into [the DOJ’s] possession. This evidence includes the data and metadata of the following two devices:” Powell wrote in her request – “This information is material, exculpatory, and relevant to the defense of Mr. Flynn, and specifically to the “OCONUS LURES” and agents...

    A 20-strong gang set upon four tree surgeons in Rochdale, England, calling them “white bastards” and cutting off a teenage worker’s hand with an axe. 27-year-old Habibur Rahman gathered the mob after the workers had stopped him from abusing an elderly woman. Rahman, incensed he had been “disrespected” on his “territory”, tracked the four workers to the property they were working on in the rape gang blighted city, blocking them by parking his car across the driveway while the mob approached armed with a claw hammer, knives, machetes, a knuckle-duster — and the fateful axe. “I am not going to...

    A US fast-food chain will cease trading at its first UK outlet amid a row over donations to anti-LGBT groups. Gay rights campaigners called for a boycott of Chick-fil-A, which opened its first branch at The Oracle shopping centre in Reading on 10 October. A spokeswoman for the centre said "the right thing to do" was to not extend the restaurant's lease beyond the "six-month pilot period". Chick-fil-A said its donations were purely focused on youth and education. The family-owned company, founded in Atlanta in 1967, is one of the biggest fast-food chains in the USA and boasts about 2,400...

    A review launched by Attorney General William Barr into the origins of the Russia investigation has expanded significantly amid concerns about whether the probe has any legal or factual basis, multiple current and former officials told NBC News.

    BRUSSELS: European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker congratulated Prime Minister Boris Johnson on their Brexit withdrawal deal on Thursday and said it meant there should be "no further delay". "We have a deal, and this deal means there is no need for any kind of prolongation," Juncker told reporters as he welcomed the British leader to EU headquarters ahead of summit talks. British MPs are expected to vote on the deal on Saturday. Pro-EU parliamentarians hope they can defeat it and Brexit can still be delayed to allow a general election or a new referendum on whether to leave the EU...

    Furious Londoners turned on Extinction Rebellion today with crowds of commuters dragging protesters down from the roofs of Tube carriages to rough them up on the station platform, while online the group was slammed for comparing its actions to those of civil rights legend Rosa Parks. As their eco-protest enters its 11th day XR activists launched a co-ordinated strike on three London Underground stations, clambering on top of carriages and glueing themselves to doors despite Monday's city-wide ban issued by the Met Police. But their efforts to disrupt public transport were met with a furious backlash from commuters, industry groups...

    Chief Brexiteer Nigel Farage has said that Boris Johnson should accept a delay to Brexit. In a video on his YouTube channel, Farage addresses the Prime Minister directly – calling on him to accept the Brexit extension that’s been “forced” on him by MPs. Indeed, if Johnson doesn’t come back from Brussels with a deal this week, he is mandated to ask the EU for a Brexit delay until 31st January 2020. And now, after haranguing MPs for weeks for “betraying” Brexit, Farage is also in favour of a delay. He says that Johnson should “sit out” this week’s EU...

    Boris Johnson has not won a single vote in the House of Commons... ..... And yet, despite everything, an intriguing question is bubbling up in London, even among some of those predisposed to hate anything Johnson does or stands for: Is he winning? ..... Whatever else can legitimately be leveled at Johnson’s door, he cannot (yet) be accused of making the same mistake. He has defined what he wants from Brexit—maximum sovereignty and no more delays. The rest of his policy flows from there. ..... Johnson’s political strategy at home is also showing early signs of success. In contrast to...

He pleaded guilty to 71 offences involving 22 children, but it is thought there were many more children across South East Asia. Huckle was found by...

    A Starbucks barista in England was caught on video trying to boot a homeless man as he chowed down on a meal purchased by a kind-hearted bystander outside the coffee chain. The footage, obtained by The Sun, shows the unidentified drifter, dressed in an open shirt, sitting outside a Starbucks in Southend, Essex, after a Good Samaritan spent $10 to buy him food after seeing the man savaging nearby. “Yeah, he can eat somewhere else,” a barista told the man and Sajid Kahhllon, who paid for the sandwich and chocolate cake moments earlier. “But he bought the food, he paid...

    TV shows will have to meet a series of diversity requirements to be eligible for Bafta awards under new rules. The BFI Diversity Standards, which cover race, gender and sexual orientation among other categories, are already part of the criteria for Bafta's film awards and are now being extended to cover small-screen productions. The rules will be piloted in Bafta's TV awards next year and will be fully introduced in 2021, the academy said. In addition, Bafta committees and jury members are receiving training in 'unconscious bias' in an effort to promote diversity.

    Bill Clinton asked UK's Tony Blair to 'take a look at' fixing problem during 2000 'political season': document While Democrats have been calling for President Trump’s impeachment over his alleged soliciting of assistance from foreign countries ahead of the 2020 election, an unearthed comment from February 2000 might show stones were being thrown from glass houses. On his show Monday, Tucker Carlson discussed a transcript of a call between former President Bill Clinton and then-U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair -- the same year as the election pitting Clinton's vice president, Al Gore, against George W. Bush -- during which the...
