    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...
  • Gordon Ramsay’s London pub taken over by squatters: ‘Absolute nightmare scenario’

    **SNIP** A swarm of squatters have shacked up inside the celebrity chef’s $16.1 million pub — using Ramsay’s own kitchen appliances to barricade themselves inside, according to a report. **SNIP** One person was seen barefoot and sprawled across on a black leather sofa inside the restaurant, with their personal belongings and debris, including empty wine bottles, strewn across the floor. **SNIP** “The pub was temporarily closed while he was finalizing a new lease, and during this handover period, a gang of professional squatters somehow bypassed all the security and CCTV, and got themselves in. “They’ve now boarded themselves in the...
  • Population History of England - a profile in chart form

    04/09/2024 11:00:24 PM PDT · by Cronos · 12 replies
    There can be no definitive answer to the question, ‘what was England’s population in [such and such a period]?’. Even with the sophisticated data gathering and processing techniques used in compiling the modern Census, not every individual is counted, and a few assumptions have to be made. When the question is applied to earlier centuries, a degree of intelligent guesswork is called for. Although England is famously blessed with a generous source of historical records, the information is not sufficient to provide a complete picture. However, a profile or ‘shape’ to England’s population history is certainly possible, one that may...

    In 2020 the British National Health Service commissioned a report on pediatric gender care. The job of sifting the evidence was given to Dr Hilary Cass. After four years, her final report is set to be released Wednesday. The gist appears to be that the case for hormones and other gender-affirming care is very weak.Children have been let down by a lack of research and "remarkably weak" evidence on medical interventions in gender care, a landmark review says.The Cass Review, published on Wednesday by paediatrician Dr Hilary Cass, calls for gender services for young people to match the standards of...
  • “They’re moving to control every aspect of your life”: An Interview with Mark Steyn

    04/05/2024 2:15:11 PM PDT · by Twotone · 13 replies ^ | April 4, 2024 | Frank Haviland
    Mark Steyn is the bestselling author of many books, including America Alone, After America, and Lights Out: Islam, Free Speech and The Twilight of the West. His previous incarnations include broadcaster, film and theatre critic, and jazz musician. But for the purposes of this interview, it’s his role as a campaigner for free speech where I think Steyn deserves the most credit. He was the man warning us about demographic decline and the dangers of Islamic immigration two decades ago. He successfully campaigned for the repeal of Canada’s Section 13 hate speech law and, more recently, has been a voice...

    Hundreds of neighbours left terrified by lawless teenagers running riot in their sleepy Sussex village held an emergency meeting to address the growing crimewave. Villagers in Barnham, West Sussex, say they are scared to leave their homes after shocking footage emerged on social media of a group of teenage girls assaulting an emergency worker after sparking a huge brawl at the station. Within 48 hours, a second clip went viral of another group of young girls appearing to loot the village's local Co-op. The chaos sent shockwaves through the leafy coastal village - so much so, an emergency public meeting...
  • ‘Won’t Take No for an Answer’: Why Is Botswana Threatening to Send Herds of Elephants to Germany?

    Home to the world’s largest elephant population, Botswana has already gifted 8,000 of the animals to Angola and offered another 500 to Mozambique. For the second time this year, Botswana has threatened to send thousands of elephants to Europe. In March, the southern African nation warned it would fill one of London’s parks with the animals. Now, the president has said his country will send 20,000 elephants to Germany. The warnings have been sparked by a diplomatic row as the UK and Germany mull the idea of stricter limits on the import of hunting trophies amid concerns over poaching. Why...
  • Industrial Revolution began in 17th not 18th century, say academics Researchers find shift from agriculture to manufacturing first gained pace under Stuart monarchs

    The Industrial Revolution started more than 100 years earlier than previously thought, new research suggests, with Britons already shifting from agricultural work to manufacturing in the 1600s. Seventeenth century Britain can be understood as the start of the Industrial Revolution, laying down the foundations for a shift from an agricultural and crafts-based society to a manufacturing-dominated economy, in which networks of home-based artisans worked with merchants, functioning similarly to factories. The period saw a steep decline in agricultural peasantry and a surge in people who manufactured goods, such as local artisans like blacksmiths, shoemakers and wheelwrights, alongside a burgeoning network...

    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...

    Prince Harry has said in interviews about his memoir, Spare, that he had enough material for a second book—so, will he put that material to good use? Opinions are split between two royal authors The Mirror spoke to. Royal author Tom Quinn said that Harry (and possibly his wife Meghan Markle, as well) have discussed the possibility of a second book, but this one with a much more “conciliatory” tone. “It wouldn’t include explosive allegations like his first book did, as the couple are reportedly keen to reunite with Harry’s estranged family,” The Mirror writes.

    Aww: isn't he sweet? Good boy! On Monday's CNN This Morning, CNN's Dana Bash and Kasie Hunt gave Republican Lance Trover a pat on the head for being "evolved" about the supposedly disparate press treatment of male and female sports coaches. The matter arose in the context of a long Washington Post profile of LSU women's basketball coach Kim Mulkey. After noting that the article "details her kind of pugnacious coaching personality," Hunt skeptically wondered: "Would we talk about that with a male coach? I don't know."Republican strategist Lance Trover, who recently toiled for Doug Burgum for President, replied: "I...

    The Tories are on pace for their worst-ever election result according to a seat-by-seat survey which found that Rishi Sunak’s neo-liberal party may win as fewer than 100 seats in the upcoming general election. A poll of 15,000 people conducted by Survation on behalf of globalist Best for Britain think tank and published in The Sunday Times found that the so-called Conservatives of Prime Minister Rishi Sunak would win just 98 seats in the 650 member House of Commons, compared to as many as 468 for the left-wing Labour Party of Sir Keir Starmer.
  • 'White supremacy' trigger warnings slapped on Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland by UK university

    A university library in the UK has placed trigger warnings for "white supremacy" on classic children's books such as Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland. York St John University warned readers that historical children's stories written in the 19th and early 20th centuries under their Rees-Williams collection are likely to contain "offensive" examples of "white supremacy" and "colonialist narratives." An online disclaimer for the collection, entitled "Content warning and position statement" says: “Within the 150 years of children’s writing which is represented in the collection, there is a widespread occurrence of colonialist narratives which centre white supremacy, and racist and...

    Feathers are flying as new regulations swoop in to tighten the reins on bird owners across Great Britain. From backyard chicken coops to parrot perches, the government is spreading its wings to crack down on bird flu. But is this move all it’s chirped up to be? In a bid to curb the spread of avian influenza, proposed rules are set to cast a wider net, roping in bird keepers of all feather sizes. Whether you’re raising a brood of chickens or sharing your home with a chatty parrot, the government wants to know. But the question remains: are these...

    Antisemitism in European cities is reaching 1930s levels and London is the worst of them all, an Israeli government minister says, warning of mass migration, radicalisation, and the hard left coming together and “serious consequences” for inaction. The growth of antisemitism in Britain is “terrifying”, says Israeli government figure Amichai Chikli, who warns freedom of speech is being extinguished in the old “beacon of light and democracy”. “Wokeism”-infected London is now the “most antisemitic place in the West”, the Diaspora and Antisemitism Minister said, counselling the United Kingdom and other Western nations to take another look at their open borders...
  • U.K. Cracks Down on Synthetic Opioid 10 Times Stronger Than Fentanyl Causing Overdoses in Europe

    As authorities clamp down on fentanyl distribution and the amount of heroin produced in Afghanistan decreases under the Taliban, criminal enterprises have turned to a deadly alternative. Some health agencies in Europe are reporting a rise in deaths and overdoses from a type of synthetic opioid that can reportedly be hundreds of times stronger than heroin and up to forty times stronger than fentanyl. 2-Benzyl Benzimidazole opioids, commonly known as nitazines, are a class of synthetic compound developed in the 1950s as painkillers, but which were never approved for use as medicines. Because of their potency, compared with natural opioids...

    In an incident that exhibits the growing tensions between genderqueer theory and objective morality rooted in Christian beliefs in our society, Victoria Culf, a Christian artist in Britain, has initiated legal proceedings against Watford Borough Council. This legal action follows a series of events that began with a casual conversation about transgender ideology, leading to Culf being barred from her own art exhibition and being reported to the police for alleged hate speech. According to an article in Christian Concern, this case highlights significant concerns regarding freedom of speech and the expression of religious beliefs. According to Christian Concern, Culf’s...
