  • Alone and Defenseless: A UK Citizen's call for arms

    This is where we find ourselves now. Every citizen in Europe and the UK faces the risk of an Islamic attack merely while going about normal day-to-day business. UK citizens in particular face this risk whilst being denied weapons of self defense. In the past I have fully and enthusiastically supported the UK’s complete ban on hand guns. But immediately after the killing of Lee Rigby I began to reconsider the wisdom of that ban and I now utterly oppose it. As things stand in the UK, hand guns are illegal. For those shotguns you could own, extremely strict licensing...

    Fifty years ago this Saturday, former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill died at age 90. Churchill is remembered for his multiple nonstop careers as a statesman, cabinet minister, politician, journalist, Nobel laureate historian, and combat veteran. He began his career serving the British military as a Victorian-era mounted lancer and ended it as custodian of Britain's nuclear deterrent. But he is most renowned for an astounding five-year-tenure as Britain's wartime prime minister from May 10, 1940, to June 26, 1945, when he was voted out of office not long after the surrender of Nazi Germany. Churchill took over the day...

    Binyam Mohamed is back in the news. You may remember him as the al-Qaeda operative who was slated to help would-be “dirty bomber” Jose Padilla conduct a second wave of post-9/11 attacks, targeting American cities. You also may not remember him. After all, the Obama administration quietly released him without charges. Well, there’s a new chapter in this sordid tale. Mohamed is living large — taxpayer-funded large — in Great Britain. For that, we can thank the Lawyer Left’s stubborn insistence that enemy war criminals are really run-of-the-mill defendants. Actually, make that run-of-the-mill plaintiffs. Unlike Padilla, who actually got into...

    LONDON – Just under a quarter of British 18-to-35-year-olds believe another Holocaust might happen in their lifetime, according to a poll released Wednesday. The poll of 505 people, commissioned by the European Jewish Congress (EJC), also found that almost 60 percent of those questioned were unaware that six million Jews died during the Holocaust. The survey – carried out by Suration in preparation for an emergency Pan European summit, in cooperation with the European Union, on January 26 in Prague – was aimed at securing views of young British people across a range of subjects, including anti-Semitism and racism.

    Two male witches have tied the knot in the UK’s first pagan same-sex marriage. Tom Lanting, 34, and Iain Robertson, 39, who have been together for 12 years, were married in a ceremony in the 16th-century vaulted cellars of Marlin’s Wynd in Edinburgh. The couple, who live in the Scottish capital, are both described as being hedge witches, who use herbal remedies to deal with medical and spiritual ailments. The ceremony encompassed a number of pagan traditions, including handfasting, where their hands were bound together, the sharing of mead and jumping the broom.After their wedding, the couple said: “Getting married...

John Whitbread, from Leicestershire, auctioned the Ł1,800 trip to the Dominican Republic in the hope of finding a female companion.

    So why are Labrador retrievers, Jack Russell terriers, and Staffordshire bull terriers the leading breeds? The popularity of these dogs is down to the fact they are "wonderfully loyal, easily-trained breeds, suitable for single owners, couples or families", said Kennel Club secretary Caroline Kisko. But the dog map shows while Labradors are more popular in rural areas, it is Staffies that are favoured in big cities. "Labradors are very popular working dogs and are equally as happy spending a day out in the field or in the woods as they are curled up on the sofa with their family," said...

    According to CNN’s reporting, the series of bloody attacks on journalists in police in Paris over the course of this week has “electrified” the global jihadist movement. The suspicion that the two brothers who were responsible for the assault on the offices of Charlie Hebdo also had links to al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula is likely to boost recruiting and fundraising efforts for that terrorist group. A resurgent al-Qaeda is already reportedly planning to follow up on the success of the Parisian attacks in the coming days. According to a warning from Britain’s MI5 intelligence service that was made...

    The Ministry of Defence has been forced to ask the US for help as it hunts for a suspected Russian submarine believed to be lurking off the coast of Scotland. Two U.S Navy aircraft were this week drafted in to carry out patrols in the North Atlantic in a bid to bridge the 'gaping chasm' in Britain's anti-submarine capability. It comes after the RAF's Ł4bn fleet of 'spy-in-the-sky' Nimrod surveillance aircraft was controversially scrapped in 2010, amid warning it would weaken Britain's defences.

    In the wake of the terrorist attack on the offices of French satirist paper Charlie Hebdo, one Muslim cleric justified the murders under Islamic law. ... Choudary’s entire argument excusing the Paris attack reveals the fundamental disconnect between views of civilizations. Radical Islamists have no intention of assimilating into their respective cultures or contributing to any kind of meaningful dialogue about religion and free speech. They are intent on terrorizing western citizens out of exerting their rights. Their plan of terrorism and intimidation, with the ultimate goal of imposing their religion on others is fundamentally anti-American and is not meant...

    Nigel Farage has been accused of exploiting the murders of cartoonists in France for political gain after saying the attack was a result of “a really rather gross policy of multi-culturalism”. The UK Independence Party leader said there was a “fifth column” living in Britain and France responsible for terrorist attacks. He said the attacks underlined for "controlled immigration policy" with "full checks on everybody" who migrates to Britain. Theresa May, the Home Secretary, condemned the comments. "It is irresponsible to talk about a fifth column", she said. Eric Pickles, the Communities Secretary, said it was "utterly wrong" to attempt...

He abused victims from as young as five to as old as 75 years old. His celebrity status at the local hospitals from his charity work allowed him access to patients and oftentimes suspicious staff turned their heads, not wanting to know who Savile actually was. This week, courts heard about one terrible case in particular. This...

A new lawsuit has revealed the extent of former President Clinton's friendship with a fundraiser who was later jailed for having sex with an underage prostitute. Bill Clinton's relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, who served time in 2008 for his illegal sexual partners, included up multiple trips to the onetime billionaire's private island in the Caribbean where underage girls were allegedly kept as sex slaves. The National Enquirer has released new details about the two men's friendship, which seems...

A lawsuit filed by four women, who say federal prosecutors illegally ignored them and kept them in the dark...

They suggest that not everyone puts rent and food before fags and booze (but we don’t want to get into a discussion about the deserving and the undeserving here).

This exchange may go some way to explain the tragicomic results of recent research. A survey of 2,000 UK families carried out in early December showed that a third of children aged 10-13 do not know that Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus. It’s shocking but hardly surprising, as Christ has been progressively removed from Christmas. But the problem does not concern just kids. According to the same survey, half the population considers Jesus’s birth irrelevant...

    The task was to re-launch The Sunday Times STYLE magazine. Rather than just making an ad campaign, we created a piece of editorial for the newspaper inventing 'The 50 Best Dressed People in the World’. From this we developed the ‘Fashion Royalty’ campaign and created an iconic series of portraits combining the images of historical royal figures with esteemed members of the fashion world – Victoria Beckham, UK HipHop act Tinie Tempah and Kate Moss.

    Britain could be pushed towards a “police state” in which officers are turned into Orwellian “thought police” in the battle against extremism, one of the country’s top cops has warned.Sir Peter Fahy, the chief constable of Greater Manchester Police, said police should not be left to decide what is acceptable free speech as the threat of severe terrorist attack intensifies.Instead politicians, academics and others in civil society should have to decide when radical Islam veers into extremism and when anti-gay or anti-women’s rights sentiments cross the line.The vice-chair of the police’s terrorism committee warned that unless this happened, it would...

    The United Kingdom’s 2010 Strategic Defense and Security Review—a budget drill, really—imposed devastating cuts to what had been one of the world’s best militaries. The British Army, Royal Air Force and Royal Navy each had to give up weapons and manpower in the interest of saving money. But arguably the most damaging reductions fell on the navy, which had to surrender both of its remaining Invincible-class light aircraft carriers years earlier than previously planned. And the Harrier jump jets that flew from the flattops went, too—leaving the navy without carrier-launched fighters for the first time since a plane took off...

    Britain will be forced to pay benefits to even more migrants under EU plans to be fought over in a politically explosive court case. Officials in Brussels last night confirmed that the European Commission is taking legal action to make Britain lift existing restrictions that prevent some migrants claiming child benefit and child tax credit in the UK. The news comes just days after David Cameron pledged to cut handouts in a bid to reduce soaring immigration. The case at Europe’s highest court will further anger the public and politicians who have called on the Government to tighten up Britain’s...

    Shortly before Christmas 2012, a group of young men booked a room at a Premier Inn in Bristol. The friends, all in their early 20s and members of the city’s Somali community, chatted, drank and chewed the stimulant khat. One of the men, a local drug dealer called Said Zakaria – also known by his street name Target – was tasked with the job of finding some girls to “party with”. Zakaria, 22, made a few calls and went off to pick up a girl he had been having sex with who can only be identified as Complainant 1 –...

    Younger generations are fighting back. Yesterday, the Cardiff University Students' Union, in Wales voted down a motion that would have made the Students' Union officially pro-choice and effectively banned pro-life activities. Clauses within the motion included preventing "affiliated societies and groups from taking part in anti-choice protests or rallies outside of abortion clinics and under the banner of the student’s union," with another part saying: "Any information about abortion or contraception disseminated, distributed or presented in union or university buildings must be unbiased and not shame those who choose to have abortions, and must be academically referenced."The motion would...

    The image above is that of a leaflet which - as part of Counter Terrorism Awareness Week - was distributed yesterday by the police at railway stations around the UK to guard people against a possible Mumbai-style attack that security forces are expecting may be attempted by Muslim extremists. The leaflets tell the public to "run, hide and tell" in the event of such an attack. They are part of a campaign just launched by Chief Constable of British Transport Police (BTP) Paul Crowther, who said: "More than six million people travel on our railways every single day." He added:...

    Transcript of Paul Weston’s speech: Well, hello all. Thank you again to Steve Eddowes for asking me to come down and speak to you today. After my last speech a lot of people have been emailing me saying, “How come some middle class nancy-boy like you supports the EDL?” And I’ve got a very simple answer for that because at the moment the EDL are the only people in this country who are standing up for what’s going on. We, in twenty-first century England, are looking at a battle for survival over the coming decades — the battle for western...
