    Tens of thousands of people including former U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson gathered in London on Sunday for a march against antisemitism, a day after large crowds turned out for a pro-Palestinian rally. Johnson was joined by U.K. Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis and other senior government officials at the march to express solidarity with the Jewish community. Organizers billed it as the largest gathering against antisemitism in London for almost a century. Marchers waved Israeli flags and Union Jacks, and held placards reading “Never Again Is Now” and “Zero Tolerance for Antisemites.” Sunday’s march was organized amid concerns about rising...

    Pro-Palestinian protests in London were arrested after the demonstration turned violent on Saturday evening. Breakaway groups began attacking the police with flares, the Metropolitan Police announced on X. It was also noted that flares had been shot at police in protests over the previous weeks. In response to the escalating violence, the police have issued a Public Order Act which prevents the continuation of the pro-Palestinian march. Earlier arrests had also been announced as protesters displayed Nazi symbols and wore Hamas-style headbands, which is criminalized under the Terrorism Act.

    Black women of African descent were more likely to die of the medieval plague in London, academics at the Museum of London have found. The study is the first archaeological exploration showing how racism influenced a person's risk of death during what was known as the Great Pestilence or Great Mortality. The research is based on 145 individuals from three cemeteries. The outbreak is believed to have claimed the lives of 35,000 Londoners. Data on bone and dental changes of the 145 individuals from East Smithfield emergency plague cemetery, St Mary Graces and St Mary Spital formed the basis of...

    A plane previously used by Britain’s King Charles and Prime Minister Rishi Sunak was forced to turn around after reaching an altitude of 14,500 feet when crew members realized two of its windows were missing. The Airbus A321 took off from London Stansted Airport for Orlando on Oct. 4 with windows that were damaged by high-powered lights used during a film shoot the day before, The Independent reported. The Titan Airways aircraft was carrying 11 crew members and nine passengers who were employees of airline and the US-based luxury tour company TCS World Travel, according to an incident report by...
  • London: When your population is 15% Muslim, you arrest people offending Muslims

    American Thinker ^ | 11/02/23 | Andrea Widburg
    The most important thing to know is that London is 15% Muslim. That’s far from a majority, but Muslims need a lot of what the Nazis used to call “Lebensraum”—that is, territory where they dominate the local population. Flexing their muscles, they act as if 15% is a majority and the general population, made ignorant by leftism and scared by the threat of jihad, accepts its status as a minority. If you understand these principles, you will appreciate the different approaches the London police have to things that call for Jewish genocide (that’s fine) and things that offend Muslim sensibilities...
  • Face masks ward off covid-19, so why are we still arguing about it?

    newscientist ^ | 10/31/2023 | Michael Le Page
    A review of the studies done so far has concluded that wearing masks really does help prevent the spread of covid-19. It is far from the first paper to come to this finding, so why does the issue remain so controversial? The problem is that it isn’t easy to carry out individual studies of the highest standard during a pandemic. That standard is a randomised controlled trial (RCT), in which people are randomly assigned to either get a treatment or intervention, in this case wearing a mask, or not. Because of the practical difficulties, only two RCTs have looked at...

    This is not a fight we can escape - it's coming for us. As the savagery of the HAMAS death squads becomes ever more inescapable, the conscious world understands it is at a crossroads. Rarely the first mover, Americans feel entitled to wait and see how the rest of the world reacts. This approach has proponents on the left and the right, none of which are particularly interesting. This is a war for the very existence of the West. That’s easy enough to prove. Hamas orders included wanton murder of civilians, torture of family members in front of each other,...

    Three months ago, CAB Payments stumbled when it went public on the London Stock Exchange, its shares falling nearly 10% on their first day of trading on a market that has been starved recently of new listings. The mood went from bad to worse Tuesday, however, when the fintech firm’s shares crashed nearly 74% after it issued a stark warning on revenues. The stock has now lost 82% of its value since listing. The company, which provides foreign currency and cross-border payment services for businesses, sold shares worth $371 million to investors in July, making it London’s second-biggest initial public...

    A massive pro-Palestine protest that started at 12pm on October 21 saw the attendance of some 100,000 people, the Met Police said, with many groups pledging their support to Palestinians. Among them were representatives of the LGBTQ+ community. But a video widely shared on social media appears to show uneasiness and lack of unity among some of the factions attending the event. The clip, filmed in Trafalgar Square where the "March For Palestine" ended, initially shows a Progressive Pride Flag being waved. Shortly after, the flag representing the LGBTQ+ community can be seen falling to the ground. As people surrounded...

Police estimated 100,000 people had taken part in the "National March for Palestine" demonstration, organised by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign. "As a Palestinian who'd like to return home one day, as a Palestinian who has brothers and...

    An estimated 100,000 people joined a pro-Palestinian rally in London on Saturday, including supporters of radical Islam and far-left groups such as Antifa and various socialist organisations. The Metropolitan Police said that up to 100,000 people joined a rally to support Palestine in the wake of the deadly Hamas terror strikes on Israel that left over 1,400 people dead and the subsequent retaliation on Palestine. Protests were also held in multicultural Birmingham, as well as in Cardiff and Salford on Saturday.

The act of vandalism was carried out just yards away from a London Underground overpass which was tagged with graffiti reading “Free Palestine”. Another nearby bridge was branded with the phrase “Palestine...

    London’s Metropolitan Police has revealed that nearly 800 spy cameras installed to enforce far-left Mayor Sadiq Khan’s green agenda car tax have been stolen or destroyed since May. In August, Mayor Khan expanded the Ultra Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) — a system of fines and levies originally intended to reduce traffic and pollution in Central London — to the entire greater area of the British capital, thereby taxing thousands of workers driving anywhere in the city, including in suburban and semi-rural areas between £12.50 to £27.50 if their vehicle does not meet the local Labour Party government’s climate standards.
