    Nearly half of all Britons polled said they backed employers demanding staff be vaccinated against the Chinese coronavirus in order to keep their jobs. A YouGov poll from Tuesday found that 49 per cent of respondents said that workplaces should be allowed to “insist that their employees get the coronavirus vaccine when they are offered it”. Only 36 per cent said that “they should not be allowed to insist”.

    For the first time since March, Britons may visit their elderly relatives inside care homes — provided they consent to take a test for Chinese coronavirus and prove negative. There have been several stories in the media of seniors and their family members pleading with national and regional governments to change the rules allowing visits in care homes, with Britons warning their elderly relatives were deteriorating without their contact. For the past nine months, visits could only be conducted through windows, with no hugging, hand-holding, or kissing allowed.

    The British authorities are going to crack down even further on Britons who oppose wearing masks, with those refusing to do so facing a fine of more than £3,000. In the coming weeks, existing fines of £100 for not wearing a mask in public places like supermarkets and on public transport will double up to a maximum of £3,200 — representing a total of only six infractions — under new rules announced by Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Thursday.

  • First Modern Britons Had 'Dark To Black' Skin, Cheddar Man DNA Analysis Reveals

    02/06/2018 11:31:05 PM PST · by blam · 183 replies
    The first modern Britons, who lived about 10,000 years ago, had “dark to black” skin, a groundbreaking DNA analysis of Britain’s oldest complete skeleton has revealed. The fossil, known as Cheddar Man, was unearthed more than a century ago in Gough’s Cave in Somerset. Intense speculation has built up around Cheddar Man’s origins and appearance because he lived shortly after the first settlers crossed from continental Europe to Britain at the end of the last ice age. People of white British ancestry alive today are descendants of this population. It was initially assumed that Cheddar Man had pale skin and...

    The strange and fascinating world of the British spy known as ‘Chris Whatsit’ was unravelling yesterday. Christopher Steele was once MI6’s top spy on Russian affairs and lived in the shadows until being unmasked as the alleged author of the ‘dirty dossier’ on Donald Trump. He was dubbed ‘Chris Whatsit’ by his late wife on their first date because she could not remember his name – but he revelled in being a man of mystery. Now the 52-year-old is hoping to return to anonymity after fleeing his £1.5million home in Surrey, telling his neighbour to look after his three cats....

    A gene study has shown that incomers could have ousted Stone Age Britons During the building of Stonehenge, around 2500BC, gene records show Stone Age Britons were replaced by Bronze Age Beaker folk. The men and women who built Stonehenge left an indelible mark on the British landscape. However, researchers have discovered that their impact on other aspects of the nation may have been less impressive. In particular, their input into Britain’s gene pool appears to have fizzled out, having been terminated by light-skinned Bronze Age invaders who arrived just as Ancient Britons were midway through their great Stone Age...

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Friday welcomed the vote by UK residents to leave the European Union, saying they "took back control of their country", according to Reuters. The presumptive Republican nominee, who is in Scotland, was asked about the British vote and replied, "They took back control of their country. It's a great thing." "People are angry, all over the world, they're angry," added Trump. "They're angry over borders, they're angry over people coming into the country and taking over. Nobody even knows who they are. They're angry about many, many things." Asked if he meant in the...

    British nationals were last night ‘undoubtedly’ caught in the terrorist atrocity in the Kenyan capital Nairobi, which has left at least 43 people dead and 200 injured at a shopping centre, said Foreign Secretary William Hague. It has now been claimed the terrorist organisation responsible for the horror was Tweeting updates while it carried out its attack on the Westlands Shopping Centre earlier today. Mr Hague said a British rapid deployment consular team was on its way to Kenya and the Government will chair an emergency Cobra committee meeting. But he could not confirm if any British nationals were killed...

    There may have been no rioting in the Highlands, but no one has been watching the arson and looting of Britain’s cities more closely than the Queen. With fewer than six months to her Diamond Jubilee, when celebrations are planned for the length and breadth of the kingdom, the disorder has alarmed aides planning the extravaganza. Central to their concern is not just the damage to the country’s image overseas, but also how quickly the feelgood factor engendered by April’s Royal Wedding has been lost. From her summer home in Balmoral, the Queen has kept in touch with developments and...

  • How 100,000 Britons have chosen to become Muslim... and average convert is 27-year-old white woman

    The number of Muslim converts in Britain has passed 100,000, fuelled by a surge in young white women adopting the Islamic faith. The figure has almost doubled in ten years – with the average convert now a 27-year-old white woman fed up with British consumerism and immorality. The numbers, revealed in a study by multi-faith group Faith Matters, have led to claims that the country is undergoing a process of ‘Islamification’. But the organisation’s report argued that most converts saw their religion as ‘perfectly compatible’ with living in Britain.

    Hundreds of angry and frightened Britons left stranded in Thailand by the volcanic dust cloud today were battling for plane seats out of the country's capital. Many were left to sleep on cardboard mats in Bangkok airport after their money ran out. Some were also without a meal or roof over their heads because non-European airlines - including Thailand's main air carrier - declined to offer customers hotel accommodation which must be offered by air carriers under EU regulations. The problems in Thailand have been exacerbated by a violent attempted coup being mounted on the streets of the capital. One...

    Voters are deeply pessimistic about the state of Britain today, believing that society is broken and heading in the wrong direction, a Populus poll for The Times has found. Nearly three fifths of voters say that they hardly recognise the country they are living in, while 42 per cent say they would emigrate if they could. But worries over the pace of social change and dislocation are balanced by the belief that life will get better, according to the survey undertaken at the weekend. It suggests that 70 per cent believe that society is now broken, echoing a Conservative campaign...
