    Britain's most notorious Islamist extremists were bankrolled by more than £1 million of taxpayers' money while waging their campaign of hate, The Mail on Sunday can reveal. A dozen supporters of Islamic State recruiter Anjem Choudary – many of them now convicted terrorists or jihadis who are fighting in Syria or have died there – were paid wages by a businessman who was handed huge sums of public money to run computer training courses in libraries and job centers. And now a judge has found that the man – a close associate of Choudary's – funnelled tens of thousands of...

    A family outing to an Emirates airline cable car in east London was interrupted by anti-Semitic shouts, telling the family to "go back to Isra-hell," The Mirror reported Wednesday. A film of the incident features a man's voice aggressively telling the family, "Don't come round here, go to Stamford Hill, you're not welcome." The man repeated the phrase multiple times. Though the family wished to remain anonymous the father stated that all his six children began crying during the attack. The children vary in age from six-weeks to ten-years-old.

    Full Title: It's a Jungle in Calais all right but the desperate migrants menacing our truckers aren't the real problem - it's the ones we never see that you need to worry about Authorities say the French port is a no-go zone at night. And when you've been 28 hours in the cab of a truck, getting in and out of France, driving through the night, you're left in no doubt they are right. Calais is bandit country. Lawless. Ungodly. Inside the endless gates and fences, you made it. You are safe. Outside, you are a target.
  • With Christianity in Decline, Britain Sees Rise of Humanist ‘Pastors’

    Cybercast News Service ^ | August 24, 2016 | 12:08 AM EDT | Kevin McCandless
    With participation in traditional faiths at near-record lows, Britain is seeing the rise of what humanists describe as “pastors” for the non-religious. Last month the University of Westminster in London broke new ground by appointing its first official secular advisor for students. The move followed efforts by the British Humanist Association since 2014 to train more than 100 volunteers to go into schools, hospitals and prisons in order to provide counseling support for those who don’t believe in a deity. Early this year hospitals run by Britain’s National Health Service in Leicester also saw their first humanist appointed to the...

    The number of people who say they have no religion is escalating and significantly outweighs the Christian population in England and Wales, according to new analysis. The proportion of the population who identify in NatCen’s British Social Attitudes survey as having no religion, referred to as “nones”, reached 48.5% in 2014, outnumbering the 43.8% who define themselves as Christian – Anglicans, Catholics and other denominations. In 2011 the BSA survey found 46% identified as having no religion. The 2011 census gave a much lower figure of 25%, but phrased the question differently. “The striking thing is the clear sense of...

    Jeremy Corbyn used his position in Parliament to call for the “complete rehabilitation” of Leon Trotsky, it has emerged despite dismissing concerns about hard-Left entryism as “nonsense”. In 1988, the Labour leader – then a backbencher – demanded the Marxist revolutionary and other communists have their achievements formally recognised by the Russian state. Mr Corbyn was one of a series of prominent left-wingers who put their name to an Early Day Motion, a form of parliamentary petition with no standing in law, which made the call. It came to light after parliamentary staff on Monday uncovered a paper record of...

Hussain shot his sisters because they married the men of their choice, for love. The murders were committed on July 29, just days after “a British woman of Pakistani origin was allegedly killed by her father and former husband for marrying her second husband against her parents’ wishes.” In another incident, a social media star was strangled by her brother after exposing an Islamic cleric’s violations of Sharia law, including sexual...

    What did Stephen Bennett say? “Don’t come over to this country and treat it like your own. Britain first.” Other than that, all we get are vague characterizations of what he wrote, as apparently the Manchester Evening News doesn’t want to be hauled up on charges itself for reporting about what he said. So we hear instead that “one comment he made concerned Asian women, another was likely to be offensive to Muslims.” For that, he got “a 12-month community order, with 180 hours’ unpaid work.” Unpaid work is slave labor. For the crime of offending Muslims. It doesn’t appear,...

    The first trailer for Christopher Nolan's highly-anticipated Dunkirk has been released. The 56-second-long preview is shot in dull tones and focuses on the bleak, raw nature of the French coastline in 1940. A score which mimics an ever-quickening heartbeat ramps up the tension, reaching a climax as a boat packed full of allied troops recoil in fear at the sound of incoming German bombers flying above them.

    An Imam has told his congregation in Wales that war is approaching and Islam allows them to take women as slaves and rape them. Ali Hammuda is an Imam at Cardiff’s Al-Manar Mosque, where three Islamic State (IS) fighters worshipped before travelling to Syria. They were known as the “Cardiff jihadis” before one was killed in an RAF drone strike as he was thought to be plotting attacks in the UK. Before the strike, Reyaad Khan and Nasser Muthana, then both 20, appeared in an IS recruiting video in 2014 where they bragged about executing prisoners. Muthana’s younger brother Aseel,...

When James Brindley sought Parliament's backing for his plan for an aqueduct over the River Irwell in Lancashire, he apparently employed a novel means of gaining their attention. Taking out a block of Cheshire cheese, the man who engineered England's first canal carved out a model of the waterway he hoped to build.

    By my estimate, only three politicians have made a genuine, enduring difference to Britain in the past 50 years. Perhaps it’s not surprising that they have very contrasting characteristics. First, there was Roy Jenkins, Labour’s Home Secretary in the Sixties. He was regarded as the father of the Permissive Society — legalising homosexuality, abolishing hanging, ending censorship, reforming abortion and divorce laws. Then there was Edward Heath, the Tory prime minister in the Seventies who negotiated Britain’s entry into the nascent European Union (then misleadingly known as the Common Market). Heath was a disagreeable man and failed in countless areas,...

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...

    Andrea Leadsom has pulled out of the contest to become the next Conservative Party leader and UK PM - with Theresa May now set to succeed David Cameron. Mrs Leadsom said she did not believe she had sufficient support to lead a "strong and stable government". She also said a nine-week leadership campaign at such a "critical time" for the UK would be "highly undesirable". The energy minister said Mrs May was "ideally placed" to implement Brexit, and wished her the "greatest success". A source close to the energy minister told BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg "the abuse has been...

    LONDON (AP) — The long awaited British inquiry into the 2003 invasion of Iraq has been published. Led by former senior civil servant John Chilcot, the report took over seven years to prepare and runs over two million words. The report did not analyze the legality of the invasion and instead focused on the British decision-making process in the run up to the war in 2003.

    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...
