    London Mayor Sadiq Khan has demanded that black people and other ethnic minorities receive priority access to the Chinese coronavirus vaccine. The leftist Mayor claimed that so-called BAME (Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic) groups are disproportionally affected by the virus, and therefore should be placed at the top of the list when the vaccine is distributed. Speaking to BBC Radio on Monday evening, Mr Khan said: “The NHS and Public Health England are working up criteria for who gets the vaccine first. Basically speaking, it’s done by age.

    "John was a boy that kept to himself," recalled Mrs Hicks, Reg and Muriel Cleese's next-door neighbor in Totnes in Devon, deploying the formulation traditionally reserved for the landladies of suburban serial killers. "I suppose he was all right with his Cambridge people, but us being country folk he wouldn't say very much. At one time I looked after John for a couple of days and did his bedroom when his parents were away. He was writing something on his desk at the time. Course I didn't look at it, but it was sarcastic sort of stuff about Churchill. I...

    I know someone, now in the twilight of her life, who has lived on the same London street for the past 45 years. Many of her local friends have died or moved away. Where the street once buzzed with English, spoken in a variety of accents, now you can go through an entire day without hearing English. From her small terraced house, she hears Pashto over one garden fence, Romanian over the other. In the nearby row of shops, the English-speaking Indian-owned mini-supermarkets have given way to Polish shops outside which young men gather every evening, speaking Polish. The cockney...

    John Cleese has criticised Londoners for voting to remain in the European Union. The 79-year-old Fawlty Towers star - who revealed last year he was moving to the Caribbean because he is “disappointed’ with Britain - accused the capital city of not being English. Cleese tweeted: “Some years ago I opined that London was not really an English city any more. Since then, virtually all my friends from abroad have confirmed my observation So there must be some truth in it...

    The comedy legend on Monty Python’s legacy, political correctness, and the funniest joke he ever told.“I want to murder this thing,” says John Cleese, fiddling with a medical contraption that’s attached to his leg. The 77-year-old founding member of the Monty Python comedy troupe — arguably humanity’s greatest comedic endeavor — and the star and co-creator of perennial best-sitcom-ever contender Fawlty Towers, is in his office on a cool London summer morning, going about things with what I suspect is his usual air of amused irritation. “I’ve got a leg infection and now have a X cube” — Cleese, sitting...

    COMEDIAN John Cleese has publicly backed the Brexit campaign as he made his views on the European Union clear in series of tweets last night. The Fawlty Towers and Monty Python star also suggested killing European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker would be the best way to reform the European bloc. A prominent Liberal Democrat supporter, Cleese added it was a "sad" situation and appeared to address his message to party grandee Lord Ashdown, who is campaigning for Remain. He tweeted: "If I thought there was any chance of major reform in the EU, I'd vote to stay in. But...

"In Britain, it's not just no-go zones, there are actually cities like Birmingham that are totally Muslim where non-Muslims just simply don't go in," Emerson told Fox News host, Judge Jeanine Pirro.

    He said: “There were disadvantages to the old culture, it was a bit stuffy and it was more sexist and more racist. But it was an educated and middle-class culture. Now it’s a yob culture. The values are so strange.” He added that he preferred living in Bath to London because the capital no longer felt “English”. “London is no longer an English city which is why I love Bath,” he said. “That’s how they sold it for the Olympics, not as the capital of England but as the cosmopolitan city. I love being down in Bath because it feels...
  • UK Knife Crime Hits Record High, Murder Surges in Khan’s London

    Knife crime in England and Wales reached a historic high in the year leading up to the end of March, as murders climb again in Sadiq Khan’s London. Crimes committed with knives in Britain jumped 6 per cent over the previous year, with some 46,265 knife crimes being recorded in the year to March 2020 — when the British government locked down the nation in response to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. The figures are in fact likely higher in reality, however, as Greater Manchester Police did not contribute their statistics to the Office for National Statistics (ONS) report. The surge...

    Hundreds of hooligans have rushed up to the police blockade outside the Cenotaph during a fierce counter-protest to today's Black Lives Matter rally in London. Riot squads armed with batons and shields are holding a line in the middle of Westminster to prevent the two groups from clashing. Crowds of pro-statue campaigners surrounded the monument of Winston Churchill, which has been boarded up by Sadiq Khan for fear of it becoming a 'flashpoint' of far-right violence.

    London Mayor Sadiq Khan was challenged on live TV as he claimed there is “no risk” of catching the deadly coronavirus from joining the millions who ride the city’s packed trains and buses. “It’s very important that we don’t spread panic or alarm based on misinformation,” Khan said on “Good Morning Britain” Tuesday when asked about the assumed “obvious risk factor” of public transport. “There is no risk in using the Tube or buses or other forms of public transport,” he said, noting there are 5 million journeys each day on the underground system along with 6 million on buses....

    LONDON — The mayor of London accused the government on Monday of failing to give judges the tools they need to keep people who pose terrorist threats in prison, a day after a man who had recently been released went on a stabbing rampage in South London. The attacker, who wounded three people on Sunday before being shot and killed by the police, was identified by the police as Sudesh Amman, a 20-year-old from London who was jailed in 2018 for terrorism-related offenses. He was sentenced to more than three years in prison, but his early release came automatically, in...

    Sadiq Khan’s former policing adviser yesterday defected to the Liberal Democrats, saying his children were “not safe” on London’s streets because of knife crime. In a shock switch, Leroy Logan, a former police superintendent, said that he was quitting the Labour Party over the London Mayor’s record. He will now become policing adviser to the Lib Dem mayoral candidate Siobhán Benita, who has unveiled a five-point plan to tackle knife crime. Mr. Logan had been planning to stand as a Labour member of the London Assembly. He was an adviser to Mr. Khan during his 2016 mayoral campaign and drafted...

    A wave of extremist far-right movements with chilling echoes of the Nazis is being “fueled” by Donald Trump, writes Sadiq Khan on 80th anniversary of World War II. The rise of far-right movements and leaders — fueled by President Donald Trump, the “global poster boy for white nationalism” — threatens to wipe out the lessons of World War II, London Mayor Sadiq Khan charged in a scathing essay Saturday. “An entire generation of brave men and women around the globe sacrificed everything to defeat the singular evil of Nazism and fascism,” Khan wrote in The Observer to mark the 80th...
