    U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, fighting for his political life over revelations about his role in parties during strict lockdown, faces one of the most crucial weeks of his time in office -- and one that will likely decide whether he remains in 10 Downing Street, or is forced to step down.

    Germany is preventing fellow NATO member Estonia from providing Ukraine with military support by declining to offer export permits for weapons of German origin, The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday. "Germany, they have a lot of hesitation to deliver to us," Ukraine's defense minister, Oleksiy Reznikov, told The Journal. A German government spokesperson explained to the outlet that the decision on the exportation of weaponry is a result of a long-standing policy. "The principle governing arms exports is always the same—whether they come directly from Germany or from third countries—and no permission has been issued at this stage," the...
  • UK claims Russia is trying to replace the Ukrainian president

    We learned this weekend that the White House has offered yet another summit between Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin in an effort to lower tensions around the situation in Ukraine. But if the intelligence agencies in Great Britain are correct, Russia may be cooking up a plan to avoid their expected invasion in a very different way. The UK is claiming that Putin plans to summarily replace Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky with a puppet president from an obscure pro-Russian political party. While such a plan seems unlikely at first glance, it would probably accomplish the same goals that Putin clearly...

    A record collector has unearthed a super-rare commentary of an Old Firm match dating back to 1907. Shane Quentin was stunned to discover the record in a box of discs he bought at an auction for just six pounds. The 59-year-old, from Carnoustie, has now sent the record to experts to clean up and produce a top notch copy. At present the sound quality is poor and only a few words can be made out. The 'International Zonophone Company' recording is of comedian, Jock Whiteford, getting excited describing a Rangers v Celtic derby back in 1907 with crowd noises in...
  • Emma Watson is Right, Sort Of-Who, exactly, is keeping the Palestinians unfree?

    Emma Watson, the actress who played Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movies, made news recently when she declared on Instagram “Free Palestine” and declared her “solidarity” with the oppressed Palestinians. Why her opinion should matter tells us something about the mental state of our giddy globe. What’s next? Should we consult Mick Jagger for his views on the expansion of NATO? Or ask Randy Quaid for his thoughts on the IMF? Watson’s sentiment isn’t wrong, writes Stephen Flatow: the Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank do indeed need to be free, but she’s sending her message to...

    Whether or not Vladimir Putin moves his troops into Ukraine, he has once again confronted Europe with a most painful reality: while being too weak to defend itself, it can no longer rely on the United States to come to its rescue. We are facing a reality in which Russia, despite its economy only having the size of Italy's, can bully and intimidate a continent thanks to its energy reserves and its readiness to project vast military power. Sure, any Russian invasion of Ukraine would cost Russia a fortune and likely degrade into a grinding war of attrition. Invasion is...

    Gary Mond is an important figure in British Jewry: he is — or was until January 12 — a vice president of the Jewish Board of Deputies and the treasurer of the Jewish National Fund (JNF-UK). Some of his past comments on social media that have recently come to light caused such a furor that he felt compelled to resign. Robert Spencer wrote about this here, and an additional report on the events surrounding Mond’s reluctant resignation is here: “British Jewish leader resigns following comments about ‘war with Islam,’” by Cnaan Lipshiz, Times of Israel, January 14, 2022A senior...

    Two British C-17 transport aircraft carrying weapons to Ukraine were forced to fly around German airspace after Germany refused to supply defensive weapons to Ukraine. Tens of thousands of Russian troops are positioned close to the Ukrainian border, according to the UK Defence Secretary, “Their deployment is not routine, and they are equipped with tanks, armoured fighting vehicles, rocket artillery, and short-range ballistic missiles”. This build-up has resulted in Ukraine requesting assistance from allies, with two British transport aircraft heading to Ukraine with anti-armour weaponry.
