  • Free Speech Is Already Dead in Great Britain

    Hotair ^ | 11/12/2023 | David Strom
    There has never been a First Amendment in Great Britain, although for a couple hundred years the Common Law was understood to give broad latitude in allowing the expression of opinion. Not so much anymore. Several “Public Order” laws passed since 1986 have increasingly restricted speech to the point now a person can be arrested for offending others, particularly those in protected classes. This has resulted in some shocking cases, such as the arrest of an autistic girl for blurting that a female police officer “looked like her nan,” who is a lesbian. She was separated from her parents after...

  • U.K. Government Finally Admits It Can't Scan for Child Porn Without Violating Everybody's Privacy

    A surveillance authority in the country’s troubling Online Safety Bill won’t be enforced, officials say. But for how long?The U.K. government finally acknowledges that a component of the Online Safety Bill that would force tech companies to scan data and messages for child porn images can't be implemented without violating the privacy rights of all internet users and undermining the data encryption tools that keep our information safe. And so the government is backing down—for now—on what's been called the "spy clause." Using the justification of fighting the spread of child sexual abuse material (CSAM), part of the Online Safety...

    A Sudanese asylum seeker convicted of attempting to meet up with a pedophile hunter posing as a 14-year-old girl on the internet has been spared prison time in the U.K. and sentenced to 30 hours of community service. Mofasim Abdulkarim, 23, pleaded guilty to attempted sexual communication with a child and asking a child to take indecent pictures; he appeared before Leicester Crown Court on Aug. 30. The court heard how Abdulkarim, who had been living in taxpayer-funded hotel accommodation in Leicester since arriving in the U.K., befriended a fake profile on Facebook portraying a 14-year-old schoolgirl called Milly.

She was later dragged away screaming in the early hours of Monday morning having been served a 'homophobic public order offence'. The incident was recorded by the girl's mother who uploaded the footage to TikTok. The mother posted: 'This is what police do when dealing with...

She stated that assaults on employees at Waitrose had doubled since 2020. Citing research from the British Retail Consortium, Dame Sharon noted that there are 850 incidents of abuse or violence at retail stores in...

    Rush to turn on air conditioning during heatwave causes spike in demand for electricity Britain has started burning coal to generate electricity for the first time in a month and a half, after the heatwave made solar panels too hot to work efficiently. One unit at Uniper’s Ratcliffe-on-Soar coal power plant in Nottinghamshire started producing electricity for the first time in weeks on Monday morning, while another coal-powered plant was warmed up in case it was needed by the early afternoon. The National Grid turned to coal to generate electricity as a rush to turn on air conditioning and fans...

    Slightly more than 30,000 muggings in England and Wales did not even result in a suspect being identified by police last year, research released by the Liberal Democrats has shown. Just 8% of all offences of robbery of personal property reported to the police last year saw someone being charged, the data from the House of Commons library research showed. West Midlands police were the worst performing force by this metric, with 4% of robberies reported to its officers in 2022 leading to a charge, followed by Northamptonshire at 5%, with the Avon and Somerset and the Hampshire forces both...

    The left-wing Labour Party is reportedly prepping plans to ban all new oil and gas developments in the North Sea and only provide loans and investments to so-called green projects. Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer, who is widely predicted to become the next prime minister of the United Kingdom, is set to make the green agenda a central feature of his pitch to voters in the upcoming general election.

    Regulators in Britain have banned a Christian teacher from the profession for life for “misgendering” a student, in what is believed to be the first case of its kind in the country. The Teaching Regulation Authority (TRA) has ruled that Joshua Sutcliffe, 33, formerly of the Cherwell School at Oxford, should be banned from the teaching profession for failing to use the so-called preferred pronouns of a girl student who identified as a boy, which they claimed amounted to not providing the pupil with “dignity and respect”. Sutcliffe admitted that there was an instance in which he praised a group...

    Transport for London (TFL) – the government arm responsible for travel across Britain’s capital city – has banned white people from applying to internships. The organization – whose chairman is London Mayor Sadiq Khan – now only accepts applications from only ethnic minorities. The organization’s website states, to apply to the Stuart Ross Communications Internship, “you must be of Black, Asian and minority ethnic background, defined as having some African, Afro-Caribbean, Asian or other non-white heritage.” The Stuart Ross Internship has been excluding “non-whites” for a number of years already, with many graduates of the scheme going on to work...

    Oops! Did Someone Forget to Save a Seat for Jill Biden at King Charles' Coronation? Well, well, well, looks like First Lady Jill Biden had a bit of a giggle-inducing seating arrangement at King Charles' coronation on May 6. While her hubby, President Joe Biden, couldn't make it for reasons unknown, Jill headed to Westminster Abbey to witness the royal affair. However, it seems like the organizers weren't exactly rolling out the red carpet for her as they stuck her all the way in the back. Oh boy, you can just feel the love and respect pouring in, can't you?...

    British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak's Conservatives were facing a bleak set of local election results with voters punishing his party over political scandals, sluggish economic growth and high inflation, early results showed on Friday. While governing parties often struggle at mid-term elections, the council results in England will be the largest, and possibly last, test of voter sentiment before the next general election which is expected to be held in 2024. The Conservative Party suffered a net loss of 144 seats on local councils that were up for re-election, the early results showed. The main opposition Labour Party, which is...
