  • London Mayor Khan Says Trump Is Homophobic, Racist, and Sexist, Demands Labour Party ‘Call Him Out’

    Donald Trump is a homophobe, sexist, and racist declared far-left Mayor of London Sadiq Khan while urging his party to do more to “call him out”. The “special relationship” between the United Kingdom and the United States may be in store for choppy waters as polls suggest former President Donald Trump is set to return to the White House and the left-wing Labour Party is widely projected to take power in Westminster as the two countries head towards general elections later this year.

    A prominent anti-Hamas activist was arrested for racism after eating a banana during a pro-Palestine protest. Niyak Ghorbani was accused of making a racist gesture with the banana while standing with counter protesters in central London last Saturday. The 38-year-old Iranian dissident, who has become a familiar figure for holding a “Hamas Are Terrorists” banner at counter protests, denies he was being racist and insists he was simply eating the fruit. He was referencing recent events on American campuses in which bananas were used to taunt pro-Palestinian protesters. Mr Gohrbani was handcuffed and led away by five officers after pro-Palestine...

    Open borders advocates on the streets and within the government itself have stepped up efforts to derail plans to finally remove some illegal migrants from the United Kingdom in the wake of the passage of legislation supposedly clearing the way for aliens to be sent to Rwanda. On Thursday morning, leftist activists clad in coronavirus-style masks surrounded a bus to prevent migrants from being removed to the Bibby Stockholm oil rig worker accommodation barge floating off the coast of Dorset, which in addition to Rwanda is being used in lieu of putting migrants up at taxpayer expense in British hotels...

    Happy Passover, the holiday when American Jews attempt to pass over an Ivy League campus and British Jews attempt to pass over a Central London thoroughfare. Surveying the scene at Columbia, Powerline's Scott Johnson posts a picture of Nazis preventing Jews from entering the University of Vienna in 1938. We are enjoined not to go full Godwin's this early in the column, but the photograph prompted this thought: A century ago, the Jews of Germany were the most assimilated in Europe. They had prospered under the Kaiser, and seemed set to do even better in the Weimar Republic. They were...

    A horse which appears to be covered in blood is among seven Household Cavalry mounts which escaped were running loose through central London. Four people have been injured and taken to hospital after a spooked horse threw its rider and the seven animals escaped and started to run through London. Emergency services are on the scene in Victoria, with a blue tarpaulin put up while people, including a serviceman, received treatment. One horse appeared to be covered in blood as it hit a number of vehicles as it ran, including a tour bus which was left with a shattered...

    The charges against activist and independent journalist Tommy Robinson were dropped on Tuesday after a judge at the Westminster Magistrates’ Court found that a police order banning him from a protest in London was unlawful. Mr Robinson, 40, was arrested in central London on November 26th for supposedly violating a ban from attending a pro-Israel demonstration. Police argued that he refused to comply with the order and therefore used synthetic pepper spray on him, placed Robinson in handcuffs and arrested him. ...

    British government gets in not-so subtle dig at lefty London mayor Sadiq Khan and his policing policies by stating the Rwandan capital is now “arguably safer than London”. The governing Conservatives are pushing to pass its Rwanda deportation scheme enabling law, which anti-borders activists have decried as morally wrong because Rwanda is a safe place for migrant resettlement. In comments before Monday nights’ votes to make the bill law, Foreign Office minister Andrew Mitchell hit back at the claims, stating some of the attacks on African state Rwanda as being unsafe and badly governed were tantamount to racism.

    Ever since the failed Sunak government ousted Suella Braverman for telling the truth about the Met Police’s ‘Dhimming’, the evidence that the woke bobbies are pandering to terrorists and suppressing their opponents continues to grow. The Met Police banned the display of English flags. Watched while the Union Jack was burned. While defending the display of Swastikas at pro-Hamas rallies. And then arrested Iranian protesters for signs denouncing Hamas While Hamas supporters have been able to call for Jihad, protesting them leads to public order arrests and then finally we can see the full implications of this policy “You are...

    A staff member at Vardag's accidentally opened the file of a couple referred to in court papers as Mr and Mrs Williams, when trying to apply for a final divorce order for a different client. Vardag's applied three days later to rescind the order but judge Sir Andrew McFarlane dismissed the application. The firm's head Ayesha Vardag said the judge's decision effectively meant "the computer says no, you're divorced". Court papers say that Mrs Williams applied for divorce in January 2023 following 21 years of marriage. The mistake was made by solicitors acting for Mrs Williams on 3 October last...

    Don’t count the Brits out just yet because there’s still a lot of rebelliousness left in them, and it’s directed against the system and politicians of the globalist New World Order. Sure, Muhammad has been the United Kingdom’s “favorite” name for baby boys since 2016, and yes, London is jokingly referred to a “Londonistan” with its Muslim mayor who infamously quipped that the probability of jihad terror was just “part and parcel” of big-city living, but… there’s also this, from James Saunders at GB News: Ulez vigilantes dress up as Batman as they thwart Sadiq Khan’s enforcement camerasAnti-Ulez activists dressed...

    London’s Metropolitan Police has come under criticism after footage emerged showing an officer telling a Jewish woman that swastikas seen at a pro-Palestinian protest should be “taken in context”. A clip shared widely online appeared to show a London police officer suggesting that under certain circumstances swastikas paraded in public could be legal, despite Britain’s tough restrictions on so-called hate speech. In the clip filmed at a pro-Palestinian rally on Saturday, the officer was heard telling a Jewish woman: “I don’t have an in-depth knowledge of signs and symbols. I know the swastika was used by the Nazi party during...
