  • UKIP's Lisa Duffy calls for partial ban on full-face veil

    BBC News ^ | 8 August 2016
    Islamic full-face veils should be banned in shopping centers, public buildings and on public transport, UKIP leadership hopeful Lisa Duffy has said. She said she did not want a general law banning the veil, but there were some places it should not be allowed. The councillor — one of six vying for leader — also said she would close Islamic schools and ban Sharia courts. Meanwhile, MEP candidate Bill Etheridge warned against focusing solely on Islam as it “makes us look small-minded”. …

    Boris Johnson’s surprising announcement on Thursday that he would not seek the leadership of the British Conservative Party — and by extension, succeed David Cameron as prime minister — leaves five candidates for the job. In a series of votes, Conservative members of Parliament will whittle down the list to two finalists, and the party’s roughly 150,000 members will choose between them. The process is expected to be completed by Sept. 9. The Conservative Party, which won a majority in Parliament last year, has a five-year mandate that lasts until 2020. But given the turmoil after voters decided that Britain...

    Voters will have to wait before migration can begin to be cut despite Britain deciding to leave the European Union, Theresa May has warned. The Home Secretary, who is the front-runner in the Conservative leadership election, promises to reform the EU’s rules on “free movement” of people, which currently allow an unlimited number of migrants to move to the UK to live and work. However, she stops short of promising to abolish free movement altogether, warning that it will “take time” before the numbers of immigrants come down. The issue of cutting migration is one of the critical battlegrounds in...

    During the Bretton Woods Conference, in 1944, Lord Halifax is said to have “whispered to Lord Keynes: ‘It’s true: they have the money bags but we have all the brains.’” By “they,” Halifax meant the Americans. His frustration with the American mind—often prosaic and anti-intellectual—during the critical Bretton-Woods negotiations seems as valid today. As odious as Britain’s elites are; boy, are they cleverer than ours. Take the impromptu interview, on June 28, which Richard Quest, CNN’s imported British broadcast journalist, conducted with Nigel Farage, leader of the UK Independence Party.

    German politicians and media organizations from across the political spectrum have been scathing about Nigel Farage after he announced his resignation as leader of UKIP, Britain’s anti-EU political party. Farage announced on Monday that he was stepping down as leader of UKIP, saying he wanted his life back. But critics have accused him of irresponsibility, as the decision means he will disappear from the political limelight with the UK’s exit from the EU, which he has long sought, looking set to become reality. “First they lied and stirred up anger, then they created chaos and now they’ve run away.

The report released Tuesday pointedly blamed a “rusty bureaucratic process” for the slow-moving response the night of the attack. The report said despite orders from President Obama and then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to deploy, the first military force did not do so until more than 13 hours after the...

But it ended with victory for him and on Friday morning he declared jubilantly that the vote for a British exit from the EU, or...

So this may be yet another dirty trick to deny the people any real democratic process. This is more likely than not going to increase civil unrest from here on out. Just stupid. This is the poster child for why people should vote online. But then again, how can government rig the elections if they cannot be in charge of counting the votes?

The foreign trip, Trump's first as the presumptive Republican nominee, will bear none of the traditional marks of the ritualistic campaign voyage abroad that White House hopefuls have embarked on in recent years. Trump is not slated to meet with any foreign leaders or visit historical sites but instead attend to his multibillion-dollar business interests. The trip -- an unconventional venture emblematic of the real estate mogul's campaign -- comes on the heels of the...

It represents a major blow to the Tory leader’s hopes of persuading still undecided voters to vote Remain with the promise of a further renegotiation of Britain’s relationship with Brussels. In a newspaper interview today the Prime Minister said he can “guarantee” a Remain result will give him the mandate to push eurocrats for greater reform of the 28-country bloc.

    Germany’s top court ruled on Tuesday that a key crisis-fighting tool of the European Central Bank complies with German national law. The constitutional court ruled that the ECB’s 2012 bond-buying plan called Outright Monetary Transactions (OMT) complies with German law. OMT — though never actually used — was part of ECB’s President Mario Draghi’s landmark promise to do “whatever it takes” to save the battered euro at the height of the crisis in 2012. […] The promise of OMT was that the ECB could, if necessary, buy up unlimited amounts of government bonds from debt-stricken countries that had pledged reforms...

    Germany’s top judges have warned in a landmark case that they will not tolerate any measure or legal finding from the European Union that clashes with the higher principles of the German Basic Law, but have retreated on a crucial point, implicitly bowing to EU primacy. The ruling by the German constitutional court in Karlsruhe reiterates a long-standing position that Germany does not accept claims of judicial supremacy by the European Court of Justice (ECJ). But the wording is weaker than its explosive ruling on Lisbon Treaty in 2009 and marks a climb-down. “The court has asserted its residual right...

    France and Germany are divided on what to do in the event of a Brexit. But common EU security is an area of agreement. Even within the German coalition government, parties are not singing from the same hymnbook on what to do in the case of a Brexit, as some feel there should be a return of powers from Brussels to individual nations. “Germany does not have a plan to follow because the government is divided on its post-Brexit strategy,” said conservative daily Die Welt. Consequently, several sources believe that the EU partners would turn their attention to issues where...
