    LONDON (AP) – Britain´s governing Conservatives suffered local election losses in their few London strongholds, according to results announced Friday that will pile more pressure on Prime Minister Boris Johnson amid ethics scandals and a worsening economic picture. Voting held Thursday for thousands of seats on more than 200 local councils decided who will oversee garbage collection and the filling of potholes, but were also an important barometer of public opinion ahead of the next national election, which must be held by 2024.

    Hundreds of scientists from around the world took part in protests last week to apply pressure on government agencies to make “rapid and deep” cuts to greenhouse gas emissions before it’s too late. In London, 25 scientists glued pages of scientific papers, along with their hands, to the windows of the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to force the agency to look at the climate research they say the British government has been ignoring, The Guardian reported. In Madrid, over 50 protesters were arrested after taking to the streets and throwing fake blood on the steps of the...

Video shared on social media appeared to show a man running Clarence Street armed with a machete, and was followed by three other men. Police said there were also reports that another male had been sprayed with a substance, which was later found...

    When oligarchs attack: Moment Russian media mogul Lebvedev 'neutralised' fellow billionaire on TV By Ted Thornhill Last updated at 1:30 AM on 19th September 2011 Alexander Lebedev, who owns The Independent and Evening Standard, unleashed a flurry of punches on another businessman taking part in a TV debate on the global economic crisis. In front of an astonished studio audience, the Russian billionaire landed a series of blows on oligarch Sergei Polonsky's head, knocking him off his chair. Afterwards Lebedev claimed that he’d had to ‘neutralise’ Polonsky because he feared he was going to be hit first. The incredible scene...

    Dr. Robert Malone, the co-inventor of mRNA technology, spoke with Tucker Carlson Today about his recent brush with cancel culture following his appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience. “This is about political warfare and information warfare,” Malone told Carlson. “All of these chatters that many have bought into that it’s about culture wars, it’s about vaccines. No, it’s not – It’s about power and money. It’s about Spotify’s market cap dropping.” Among several bombshells dropped by Malone during the interview, the medical expert revealed that the owners of music streaming platform Spotify, where Rogan hosts his show, and vaccine maker...

    It follows the publication last week of a damning report by the Independent Office for Police Conduct which revealed what it called a culture of misogyny and racism in the Metropolitan Police Service. The report centered on nine linked independent investigations concerning serving police officers from the MPS mainly based at London's Charing Cross station. After finding several officers guilty of serious misconduct offenses, the report issued 15 recommendations "to change policing practice" in the UK. The murder of 33-year-old marketing executive Sarah Everard in London last year by a serving police officer, and the Met's handling of a public...

    A top House Republican revealed Sunday the investigation into the man who took four people hostage at a Texas synagogue on Saturday has gone international. What are the details? Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas), the ranking member on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, told CNN host Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" there is "something more" to the case than a lone actor. In fact, McCaul disclosed that the FBI's investigation now extends to London and Tel Aviv. "I know the FBI has now fanned their investigation out to London and Tel Aviv. So this has now turned into an...

    British Prime Minister Boris Johnson takes questions in parliament, London, on Wednesday, January 12.

The Metropolitan Police has said it is in contact with the government over 'widespread reporting relating to alleged breaches' of COVID-19 rules at the time. ...

    Marxist-led protest group Black Lives Matter was once again featured in London’s woke New Year’s Eve fireworks show, the latest politicisation of the once neutral display by London’s left-wing mayoralty. During the British capital’s 2021 New Year’s Eve fireworks display, Brits tuning in across the country were once again subjected to far-left propaganda during what, in normal times, would be an apolitical moment for amusement and reflection.

    In the days leading up to New Year’s Day, a growing number of cities and municipalities have decided to postpone festivities due to CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus outbreaks despite milder symptoms and fewer hospitalizations than previously reported. The iconic New Year’s celebration in New York City will take place as planned but will be scaled back, said outgoing Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio last week. Masks will be required, as will proof of vaccination, and social distance measures will be enforced. Compared to last year, New Year’s Eve celebrations in New York City were much more subdued, with only...
  • 70 Per Cent of London’s COVID Hospitalisations Diagnosed After Being Admitted For Other Ailments

    Sick people have been given Covid by the very hospital where they went to get better.” 70 per cent of London’s COVID hospitalisations were diagnosed after the patient had already been admitted for other ailments, it has been revealed. The figure is important because a so-called ‘surge’ in London hospitalisations for COVID is being used as a justification to lobby for further lockdown restrictions on the British public. However, as Telegraph journalist Allison Pearson reveals, much of the panic is being driven by cases being counted as COVID despite the patient being admitted for other reasons. “Astonishing fact. 70% of...

    Britain reported another day of record Covid-19 cases on Friday, with new estimates showing swathes of London’s population are carrying the virus, underlining the relentless advance of the Omicron variant. Omicron’s rapid spread has driven a surge in cases over the last seven days, especially in the capital. Around 1 in 20 Londoners likely had Covid-19 on Dec. 16 and early estimates - which could yet be revised - suggest this may have risen to 1 in 10 on Sunday, models from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) showed on Friday.

    Goldsmiths activists restrict entry to 'Palestinian liberation' discussionJews and white people were banned from a student meeting at Goldsmiths, University of London, that discussed “defending Palestine”. The meeting last month, which was strictly limited to students who were “African, Arab, Asian, Caribbean and other black communities”, was part of an effort by pro-Palestine activists to use a student strike against job cuts at the university to campaign for their cause. On the first day of the strike, which began in November, an advertisement for “Palestinian liberation” was shared online while Palestine flags and banners appeared on the picket line. This...

    A fully vaccinated and boosted Israeli doctor who became infected with the Omicron variant appears to have only passed the bug on to one other person — despite coming into close contact with dozens of people. Dr. Elad Maor, a cardiologist at Sheba Medical Center near Tel Aviv, told the UK’s Guardian he came down with symptoms and tested positive after attending a three-day conference in London over the weekend. “I got the Omicron in London, for sure,” Maor, who has received three doses of the Pfizer vaccine.“That is interesting because that was 10 days ago in London — really,...

    ‘Woke’ London headmaster leaving school amid charges of anti-Semitism The headmaster of England’s most expensive private day school is leaving her post after a revolt from parents who claim an “ultra-woke” curriculum lead to anti-Semitic incidents. Robin Appleby, who has led the prestigious, $50,000-a-year American School in London since 2017, is allegedly exiting to “focus on her own wellbeing and that of her family,” but insiders tell the Daily Mail she is being booted from the star-studded school — and her $550,000-a-year position — because of her controversial curriculum.

    A new photograph showing a moving object in the middle of the Solent has caused eyewitnesses to question if it was the Loch Ness Monster enjoying a holiday. The extraordinary sighting of three humps bobbing up and down in the water comes just days after a similar shape was spotted in The Thames by the O2 Arena in London. The picture - taken 630 miles away from Loch Ness - has resulted in Trevor and Jo Wilde questioning if it was Nessie swimming past. Three humps emerged from the water as the Nessie-shaped creature - first brought to the world's...
