    Supply chain snags are driving up the prices for fish and chips. As many as half of the U.K.’s “chippies” could shut down. HASTINGS, England — Ever since she was old enough to walk, Terrilea Coglan was climbing aboard fishing boats that set sail each morning from the rocky beachfront of Hastings to harvest the key ingredient in Britain’s most iconic dish: fish and chips. The day’s catch travels just a short way from the boats up to the seaside fish and chips shops, or “chippies,” that pride themselves as much in the freshness of the fish as in the...

    The EU will begin taking British travellers’ fingerprints and scanning their faces from next autumn, as reported by the i and the Times. The new Entry/Exit Scheme (EES) could reportedly come into force on October 6, 2024 after several delays. It was initially due to begin in 2022, then in 2023. Non-EU (including British) travellers heading to the EU will have their fingerprints checked and their faces scanned the first time they enter the zone. It will apply to all EU countries except Cyprus and Ireland. Norway, Iceland, Switzerland and Liechtenstein, which are in the Schengen area but are not...

    Who would have thought Nigel Farage would reach the finale of ‘I’m A Celeb’? Is this his stepping stone back into the political arena? In a remarkable twist, Brexit architect Nigel Farage, is allegedly on the verge of announcing a major political comeback. The revelation comes just hours after his surprisingly successful journey to the final stage of ‘I’m A Celebrity,’ in which he clinched third place. But after scoring votes from ‘Celebrity’ viewers it appears Farage is hoping to win yet more on the political stage. According to MailOnline, Farage’s plans will be unveiled in an upcoming interview, after...

    Destitution - it's a word almost from another age, conjuring visions of desperate, grinding poverty. But it is a fact of life right now , for increasing numbers of people, according to new research by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation thinktank. In a joint study with Heriot-Watt University, they found that 3.8 million people - a million of them children - experienced destitution last year defined as being unable to meet some of the most basic needs - staying dry, clean, warm and fed.

    A whistleblower has come forward with an explosive new trove of documents, rivaling or exceeding the Twitter Files and Facebook Files in scale and importance. They describe the activities of an “anti-disinformation” group called the Cyber Threat Intelligence League, or CTIL, that officially began as the volunteer project of data scientists and defense and intelligence veterans but whose tactics over time appear to have been absorbed into multiple official projects, including those of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The CTI League documents offer the missing link answers to key questions not addressed in the Twitter Files and Facebook Files....

    People who voted for Brexit tended to be less clever, new research shows, in findings that also shed light on the appeal of EU populists, such as Dutch politician Geert Wilders. Some 73% of people in the smartest top 10% of the British population voted to stay in the EU back in 2016, according to a fresh study by the University of Bath in the UK. Just 40% of those at the other end of the spectrum (the least-smart 10%) voted to remain. And even in couples — where people had a similar age, education, income-level, and cultural background —...

    Suella Braverman has said the pressure on public services from migration is "unsustainable", after figures estimated record levels last year. The former home secretary said the government must "act now" to cut the numbers coming to the UK. Net migration - the difference between the number of people coming to live in the UK and those leaving - was a record 745,000 last year, ONS figures show.No 10 said migration was "far too high" but it was acting to bring it down. The prime minister's official spokesman said this included clamping down on dependants of students coming to the UK...
  • Higher cognitive ability linked to higher chance of having voted against Brexit

    11/22/2023 7:14:36 PM PST · by devane617 · 61 replies ^ | 11/22/2023
    A new analysis suggests that a person with higher cognitive ability may have been more likely to vote "Remain" in the 2016 Brexit referendum, and that a spouse's cognitive skills may also be linked to Brexit voting decisions. Chris Dawson and Paul Baker of the University of Bath, U.K., present these findings in the open-access journal PLOS ONE on November 22, 2023. Having higher cognitive ability has previously been associated with a greater tendency to recognize and resist misinformation. Studies have also shown that the U.K. public received a large volume of misinformation about the referendum prior to voting for...

    Susceptibility to misinformation and disinformation likely to have played part in Leave vote.New research from the University of Bath’s School of Management finds that higher cognitive ability was strongly linked to voting to Remain in the 2016 UK referendum on European Union Membership.The study shows that cognitive skills including memory, verbal fluency, fluid reasoning and numerical reasoning, were correlated with how people decided to vote. Lead author Dr Chris Dawson, from the University of Bath’s School of Management, said: “This study adds to existing academic evidence showing that low cognitive ability makes people more susceptible to misinformation and disinformation.

    Ron DeSantis’s taxpayer-funded Press Secretary Jeremy Redfern has claimed Brexit-campaigner and accredited conservative journalist Raheem Kassam (editor of this site) would be “top of the list” for deportation from the United States if the Governor of Florida were to become President in January 2025. His argument appeared to stem from the fact that Kassam does not support DeSantis for President, as well as mocking his colleagues Christina Pushaw and Brian Griffin on social media.The anti-free speech stance from one of the Governor’s official spokesmen comes as Trump announced mass deportations for illegal migrants in America, as well as Hamas and...

    In a major coup for upstart British broadcaster GB News, Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced that he will be joining the network as a presenter, and therefore reuniting with his former fellow Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage. Following a tumultuous month, in which popular GB News personalities Laurence Fox and Calvin Robinson were unceremoniously sacked amid calls to shut down the network entirely over crude remarks about a feminist political commentator made on air by Fox, the broadcaster has firmly entrenched itself within the UK media landscape with the signing of ex-PM Boris Johnson.
  • Huge Brexit victory as UK escapes massive $70bn bill to top up EU budget

    Daily Express ^ | Sep 4 | Story by Charles Harrison
    Brexit Britain is dodging the European Union's increasing demands for cash from its member states after leaving the bloc. The EU is understood to be planning a €66bn (around $70bn ) increase in the 2021-2027 budget, as set out by the Commission in June. An additional €20bn (more than £17bn) is earmarked for support for Ukraine. While member states are supportive of the money going towards stymying Vladimir Putin's invasion, they are reportedly less keen on other areas of the boosted spending, as many countries face continued economic strife. German Finance Minister Christian Lindner expressed his support for increased spending...

    JPMorgan Chase is back to debanking. Once again, it’s not providing any explanations. And once again it’s targeting people who dare to question the Left Government/Woke Business conspiracy against liberty. At about the same time, it appears, Chase debanked, without warning, Drs. Syed Haider and Joseph Mercola. Wait, no. Not just them, but also Dr. Mercola’s employees – and his and their families. All without explanation. These debankings don’t come without context. You may recall that last fall Chase debanked Senator, Ambassador and Governor (so, you know, pretty well respected) Brownback’s religious liberty organization, after having debanked General Flynn and...

    It should be “completely unacceptable” for banks to close accounts on “political grounds”, a Home Office minister has said, as Conservatives weighed in on a so-called freedom of speech row prompted by claims from Nigel Farage. Tom Tugendhat, the security minister, was speaking in parliament after the culture secretary, Lucy Frazer, urged regulators to take action against banks that shut off access to people with controversial views. Farage, the former Brexit party and Ukip leader who is now a presenter on GB News, claimed last week that he was considering leaving Britain because he had been told by his bank...

    Nigel Farage has voiced his strong opposition to plans that would see the home of the Dambusters turned into a migrant camp. RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire was confirmed earlier this month to be considered as an asylum centre by the Home Office. The airfield was used as the headquarters for the famous World War Two Dambusters squadron. Speaking on GB News, Nigel Farage said the plan would be an act of “cultural desecration”. “Scampton was a very, very important place. This has been for many years the home of the Red Arrows,” he said. “As many of you know, we...

    The leader of the Brexit movement, Nigel Farage, has said that the globalist green ideology surrounding the commitment to ‘net zero’ has replaced Christianity as the driving force within the governing Conservative Party. Following the publication of the Independent Review of Net Zero by Conservative MP Chris Skidmore last week, which called for the government to double down on wind and solar power, as well as banning new gas boilers within a decade, Nigel Farage surmised that — in light of the economic crisis befalling the nation — the green agenda stands as the issue in which the Tories are...

The establishment were of course appalled because they in their little London bubble think that I'm incredibly unpopular. Well in Notting Hill I might be maybe, not quite so in the rest of the country. But actually truth is, I'm not full of the joys of spring. I've been living with something for the last couple of...
