    Vegan activists threatened a restaurant in the United Kingdom over its Valentine's Day menu A chef in the United Kingdom is backing away from including foie gras on a Valentine's Day menu after receiving death threats from vegan activists. The chef at Kings Arms at Fleggburgh opted out of serving the decadent dish during Valentine's Day dinner this weekend after being subjected to "harassment" by activists who threatened to protest the menu, the Guardian reports. Foie gras is traditionally made by force feeding geese until their liver becomes enlarged.

"France is not what it used to be, and neither is Paris," Trump is quoted as saying.

He then raped her and she said that throughout he was talking to himself, shouting 'Inshallah' - which is Arabic for 'if Allah wills it'. She said: 'Afterwards he asked me if it was good, and...

    A dog which vanished in Northamptonshire four months ago has turned up Bristol and her owners are "over the moon".

"I got a phone call from Bristol's dog warden to say she'd be found on an estate, and we drove up early today to pick her up," says Sarah. "She's very underweight, her hair is...

    What happens if you express a negative view of Islam? Ask Tommy RobinsonThe former leader of the English Defence League is now a national pariah. Perhaps he deserves it ~ or perhaps it should worry us all A few weeks back, Tommy Robinson, former leader of the English Defence League, sent me his self-published memoirs, called Enemy of the State. The book has been largely ignored by most of the established media, although has caused a bit of a stir among counter-Jihadist groups across Europe. I'd recommend people read it, although perhaps not for the reasons Tommy would like...

    Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron promised back in 2010 to bring net migration down to 100,000 people a year. Six years later, it's more than three times that number. That's one reason the government's Home Office decided that non-Europeans on skilled worker visas -- known as Tier 2 visas -- are not welcome to stay unless they are making at least 35,000 British pounds (about $50,000 a year). The message is aimed at slashing migration to Britain and goes into effect in April. But critics call the new rule discriminatory and say it will strip Britain of lower-paid artists, health...

    THE UK GOVERNMENT is facing demands to reveal the details of a secret flight through Scottish airspace which was at the centre of a plot to capture whistleblower Edward Snowden. The plane, which passed above the Outer Hebrides, the Highlands and Aberdeenshire, was dispatched from the American east coast on June 24 2013, the day after Snowden left Hong Kong for Moscow. The craft was used in controversial US ‘rendition’ missions. Reports by Scottish journalist Duncan Campbell claim the flight, travelling well above the standard aviation height at 45,000 feet and without a filed flight plan, was part of a...

He claimed "good progress" had been made over the last two days while admitting there were "still outstanding issues".

But the two groups had very little to say on the issues themselves, with the left-wing militants intent on provoking violence at a march led by the National Front, initially billed to be in support of British truckers being attacked and threatened in Calais, France, by migrants.

Work is due to begin this year with the first ship scheduled to enter service in the early 2020s. David Cameron has said at least another five general purpose frigates will be built on the river....

In fact, the device seen here for the first time is the trigger to Britain’s nuclear deterrent, a button that when pressed could destroy hundreds of thousands of lives. It is in the hand of Lieutenant Commander Woods, the weapons engineer officer on HMS Vigilant, one of four Vanguard class submarines that carries up to eight Trident missiles armed with nuclear warheads. The 38-year-old father of three has spent 16 years training for the moment when Vigilant’s commanding...

    LONDON -- Donald Trump doesn't have many fans in Britain's Parliament. But a debate among lawmakers on calls to ban Trump from the country revealed little appetite to close Britain's doors to the provocative Republican US presidential contender. During a three-hour debate Monday, legislators from Britain's main parties stood to call Trump an attention-seeker, a demagogue and a fool. Many, though, argued that he should not be stifled or banned. "While I think this man is crazy, while I think this man has no valid points to make, I will not be the one to silence his voice," said Conservative...

In a report from the UK Standard, it discusses how not only has the presence of Islam grown in the UK (thanks to the aid of the British government), but also how Muslims literally are protesting and promoting Islam on Downing Street itself. This is a sign that does not bear well for the future, as it reveals Islam's goal in the UK: the complete takeover of the nation and the subjugation...

    British Prime Minister David Cameron will look into claims that U.S. officials prevented a British Muslim family of 11 from flying to Disneyland for a planned holiday. The issue is sensitive because U.S. Republican presidential contender Donald Trump has called for a temporary ban on Muslims visiting the U.S. due to concerns about extremist attacks. Stella Creasy, a member of the opposition Labour Party, said Wednesday that U.S. officials gave no explanation for refusing to allow her constituents to board a flight from Gatwick Airport on Dec. 15, so she wrote Cameron seeking his intervention.

The Queens Road mosque in Walthamstow, northeast London, where Abdulla Ahmed Ali met his associates, is controlled by the ultraorthodox Tablighi Jamaat. Intelligence services around the world believe that Tablighis fundamentalism makes some of its followers easy prey for terrorist recruiters. Two decades ago the same mosque was hosting talks by followers of Omar Bakri Mohammed, one of the first Islamic clerics in Britain to preach jihad.

A two-year commission, chaired by the former senior judge Baroness Butler-Sloss and involving leading religious leaders of all faiths, calls for public life to be systematically de-Christianized. It says the decline of church-going and the rise of Islam and other beliefs mean a “new settlement” is needed for religion in the U.K., giving more official influence to non-religious voices and those...

    Last week, the UK's most popular newspaper, the Sun, ran the headline "1 in 5 Brit Muslims' sympathy for jihadis". Where did that statistic come from and how reliable is it?

    The new "Star Wars" film opens next month -- but the Force won't be with the Lord. In a snub to the Church of England, an advert that was planned to coincide with the new film "The Force Awakens," has been rejected by most UK cinemas due to fears it could be offensive. Digital Cinema Media (DCM), the company that supplies advertising to Britain's main movie houses, Odeon, Cineworld and Vue, made the decision after reviewing its policy on political and religious adverts. The minute-long video features the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, and other Christians reciting the Lord's Prayer....

    Human rights groups say they have uncovered definitive proof a UK-made cruise missile was used to destroy a civilian target in Yemen in September and have called for Britain to end arms sales to the Saudi Arabia-led coalition fighting a bloody campaign against rebel forces there. Such a use of the missile, made by Marconi and sold to Saudi Arabia during the mid-1990s, was “depressingly predictable”, said Amnesty International, which conducted the investigation alongside Human Rights Watch. According to research at the scene and interviews with witnesses, the groups say the missile was used on 23 September to destroy a...

    Britain's Prince Charles has blamed climate change in part for the Syrian war and warned that global warming could exacerbate similar conflicts worldwide. Charles's comments — in an interview broadcast Monday — came exactly one week before the start of a United Nations climate change conference in Paris, where he plans to deliver a keynote address. Unless world leaders take action to slow the impact of climate change, "it’s going to get so much worse," Charles warned in the interview with Sky News, which was recorded before the Nov. 13 terrorist attacks in Paris. "Some of us were saying 20...

    The British government is tightening their belts by giving up Prime Minister David Cameron’s private jet charters and shuttling him around in a Voyager A330 mid-air refueling aircraft. The British “Air Force One” equivalent will still be used to fuel up fighters when it’s not transporting VIPs. The BBC says Cameron’s flights were costing over $10,000 per airborne hour on “Royal Squadron planes or long haul charter,” but that figure will drop to just $3,000 on the refitted Voyager. That’s reportedly going to save English taxpayers almost $1.2 million a year. The Royal Air Force says their Voyager A330s have...

    A centre spokesman confirmed to the BBC the squirrel was "safe and alive" but could not reveal any further information about what would happen to it now. 'Genetic defect' The RSPCA said under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 it was generally illegal to release grey squirrels back to the wild once treated by a vet. Dr Helen McRobie, a lecturer in biomedical science at the Anglia Ruskin University, said she had never heard of a bald squirrel before but it would "need to be kept in the warm once the temperature drops". "This is very rare. I have been...
