From Star Wars to Newsnight? BBC admits pro-Brexit pastor is also paid actor

The BBC has come under fire after a Brexit-backing pastor who staunchly defended Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal on Monday’s Newsnight program was revealed to also be a paid actor.

Lynn, also known as Marina, Hayter, dressed in full dog-collar garb, urged viewers to “have faith in the government” while being rather deferential to the assembled politicians. “They know far more about what’s going on than we do," Hayter said, as she gestured towards the participating MPs.

RICHARD LITTLEJOHN: On the 12th day of Brexit, Theresa gave to me... The start of World War III

On the first day of Brexit, Theresa gave to me: A lifetime of penury. On the second day of Brexit, Theresa gave to me: Some garbage from Mark Carney.

Strictly speaking, Day Two should really be about national security, but I couldn't make it scan.

The Home Office minister Ben Wallace spent yesterday putting himself about in radio and TV studios warning that we're all going to be murdered by terrorists unless MPs get behind Mother Theresa's risible Brexit 'deal'.

UK to Send Marines, Warship to Ukraine for Sake of 'Democracy'

Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson will reaffirm Britain’s commitment to Ukraine during a visit to Kiev.

The United Kingdom will ramp up its military assistance to Ukraine, deploying additional troops and a Royal Navy ship to defend 'freedom and democracy,' Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson will announce on Wednesday, The Telegraph wrote.

Ukrainian Special Forces and Marines will be trained by British personnel and HMS Echo, a Royal Navy hydrographic survey ship with a company of 72, will deploy to the region.

“As long as Ukraine faces Russian hostilities, it will find a steadfast partner in the United Kingdom,” Williamson will say.

UK Commits Extra Military Forces to Ukraine: Irresponsible Policy, Dangerous Repercussions

This carefully researched article by Arkady Savitsky first published on November 24, (one day before the Kerch Strait Incident) outlines with foresight Britain’s so-called “hydrographic survey” in the Black Sea which is slated to be carried out as of early next year. The stated objective is to:

“to demonstrate Britain’s support for Ukraine and ensure “freedom of navigation”.

In this regard, the Kerch Strait Incident acts as a pretext in support of an ongoing military project. In all likelihood it will be used to “justify” US-UK-NATO deployments in the Black Sea Basin.

Is the Kerchen Incident part of a broader US-NATO “Responsibility to Protect (R2P) plan to “militarize the Black Sea”? According to Arkady Savitsky:

In September, Great Britain made known it planned to increase the warships’ presence in the Black Sea next year with increasingly frequent port calls to Odessa.

'It is game, set and match to you': Farage congratulates Barnier on 'beating' Britain in Brexit talks at a half-empty European Parliament as the EU insists NO other deal is available

Nigel Farage today congratulated his arch nemesis Michel Barnier on beating the UK in the Brexit talks - declaring Brussels had won 'game, set and match'.

But he warned the deal is so loathed in Britain that it does not stand a chance of getting backed by MPs and the UK could be set to crash out without a deal at all.

It came after Mr Barnier said the agreement thrashed out with Theresa May is the only deal on the table.

Speaking in a half empty chamber in the European Parliament for a standard plenary session this morning, Mr Farage it is a 'good deal' for the EU but hated in Britain.

The ex Ukip leader said: 'It is a good deal for the European Union. For the UK, I think it is probably the worst deal in history.'

He added: 'Mr Barnier, I have to say, I wish you were on our side really, because it is game, set and match to you.'

Lashing the PM's divorce deal, he said it 'shattered any illusion' that Britain will become an independent country after March next year.

Theresa May's Brexit deal was torn apart in the Commons, just as it would be by the general public

Did previous generations who lived in historic times find history to be so aggressively punctuated with formal statements?

When Genghis Khan conquered China, for example, was he required to make public statements to the effect that he was a) thinking about conquering China, b) going to conquer China, c) in the process of conquering China, and ultimately d) had conquered China?

No one doubts that Theresa May agreeing a deal to formalise the UK’s exit from the European Union is historic, not least given, as Winston Churchill once almost said, the last fortnight has lasted for a thousand years. But it has now been pre-announced, pre-pre-announced, announced and, at the despatch box of the House of Commons on Monday, enjoyed the first of what will be a lengthy string of re-re-announcements.

EU's lawyers argue Britain cannot cancel Brexit without the bloc's consent

Lawyers acting for the EU have argued that Britain should not be able to cancel Brexit without the bloc’s consent in order to prevent political chaos from engulfing the union.

The European Union’s top court is to rule on whether the UK has the power to unilaterally revoke Article 50, after legal action seeking clarity on the matter from Remain campaigners.

The UK started the legal process of leaving the EU in March 2017 by invoking the Lisbon treaty clause, which spells out the steps towards the exit door.

Did BBC hire a 'fake vicar' to back Theresa May's Brexit deal on Newsnight? Viewers discover guest is actress who appeared in Star Wars and EastEnders and claims to have been ordained by a US evangelist

The BBC has come under fire after it booked a Star Wars extra who calls herself a pastor through an agency for a Brexit discussion.

The broadcaster denied hiring a 'fake vicar' to appear on its flagship political programme after social media users hit out at the corporation.

Lynn Hayter appeared on Newsnight on Monday to defend Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit withdrawal agreement on the UK leaving the European Union.

Today she angrily denied she had been paid by the BBC as she spoke to MailOnline outside her home.

Ms Hayter, whose 'ordination' seems to have come in the form of a certificate from a US televangelist, said: 'I was not paid by the BBC . They did not pay me. I was contacted by an independent organisation and asked to appear.'

THIS GUARDIAN FAKE NEWS STORY PROVES THAT THE MEDIA CAN'T BE TRUSTED

Sources have said Manafort went to see Assange in 2013, 2015 and in spring 2016 – during the period when he was made a key figure in Trump’s push for the White House.

It is unclear why Manafort wanted to see Assange and what was discussed. But the last meeting is likely to come under scrutiny and could interest Robert Mueller, the special prosecutor who is investigating alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

A well-placed source has told the Guardian that Manafort went to see Assange around March 2016. Months later WikiLeaks released a stash of Democratic emails stolen by Russian intelligence officers.

Manafort, 69, denies involvement in the hack and says the claim is “100% false”. His lawyers declined to answer the Guardian’s questions about the visits.

The piece did not include the public denial Wikileaks issued to its 5.4 million followers one and a half hour before it was published.

Tory MP Johnny Mercer says there's 'nothing wrong' with killing for what you believe in

A Tory MP has prompted an angry debate after suggesting killing people for what you believe in is acceptable.

Writing about why young people should consider joining the army, Plymouth MP Johnny Mercer lamented the unpopularity of the use of violence.

He said: “The application of violence to defeat the enemies of the nation has become worryingly unpopular. Nothing wrong with fighting (yes killing) for values/what you believe in. The oppressed/bullied/tormented/voiceless deserve it. Join the fight; best thing you’ll ever do.”

The MP’s tweet followed another which said: “At some point – somewhere – someone – is going to have to stand up to Russia in the traditional sense.”

Uber driver who sparked a major terrorist alert when he ploughed into a crowd of tourists had been driving around London uninsured and without a licence for two years

An Uber driver who sparked a major terror alert when he ploughed into a crowd of tourists had been driving around London uninsured and without a licence for two years.

Tanzanian Juma Omar, 48, floored the throttle of his Toyota Prius outside the Natural History Museum and careered over the pavement, sending pedestrians flying into the air as others ran screaming from his path.

He claimed the brakes had failed, but he was convicted of dangerous driving by a jury at the Old Bailey.

The court heard Omar came to Britain as an asylum seeker in 1995, but was told to get out the country in 1998.

'This is Project Hysteria': Brexiteers slam Bank of England chief after he warned No Deal doomsday could cause the worst recession since the 1930s and plunge house prices by 30%

The Bank of England has warned the pound would crash, inflation will soar and interest rates would have to rise in the event of a no deal disorderly Brexit.

Bank Governor Mark Carney said the impact of Brexit would depend entirely on whether there was a deal but said he had a duty to spell out what might happen.

Mr Carney said the Bank's job was not to 'hope for the best but prepare for the worst' - but his blood-curdling claims will enrage Brexiteers.

The figures are contained in a 'worst case scenario' published by the Bank which suggests in a last-minute no deal, no transition Brexit Britain's GDP could plunge rapidly by 8 per cent - much worse than the 2008 financial crisis.

But he faced a backlash from Eurosceptic MPs, who accused him of mobilising ‘Project Hysteria’ in support of Mrs May’s deal.

‘We rid you of the NAZIS!’ Brexiteer MEP EXPLODES at EU’s attempts to ‘ENSLAVE BRITAIN’

The Scottish MEP accused the European Union of trying to “stamp their boot” on Britain with their latest offer for a Brexit deal. Mr Coburn previously branded the tentative agreement an “insult” to the United Kingdom, insisting Brussels should pay tribute to the important role the country played in defeating the Nazis during World War 2. The leader of Ukip Scotland claimed the bloc is trying to “enslave” Britain and force Britons to stay in the EU by exploiting the fragile relationship between Northern Ireland and the Republic.

Addressing colleagues during the European Parliament plenary in Brussels on Wednesday, Mr Coburn said: “George Orwell said ‘if you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face forever.’

“The EU has tried to stamp a jackboot down on Britain with its recent so-called Brexit deal for democratically daring to leave. An attempted enslavement of the very nation that fought the Nazis and liberated Europe.

British Royal Air Force kicks off ‘combat readiness’ drills with Saudi Arabia

London has sent its airpower and servicemen for a joint drill with Saudi Arabia, despite international pressure to wind down military cooperation with Riyadh after the Khashoggi murder and amid its devastating war in Yemen.

Around 200 Royal Air Force (RAF) servicemen and eight Typhoon jets are now in Saudi Arabia taking part in a ‘pre-planned’ Green Flag exercise to help the Royal Saudi Air Forces (RSAF) maintain its combat readiness.

“The British Royal Air Force aims to integrate all combat systems, including air combat, air support and electronic warfare, and especially how to use them against the enemy’s land defense systems for maximum operational efficiency,” Major General Haidar bin Rafie Al-Omari of the RSAF said on Monday.

Daniel Hannan: I want to support May’s plan. But I can’t. It proposes a way of leaving the EU that’s exactly the wrong way round.

Daniel Hannan is an MEP for South-East England, and a journalist, author and broadcaster. His most recent book is What Next: How to Get the Best from Brexit.

I have been watching the dégringolade of Brexit with – if such a thing is possible – even more agony than the rest of you. It’s not just the frustration of seeing mistake after avoidable mistake being made by our side. It’s not just the tossing away of a generational opportunity to relaunch Britain as a global trader. It’s something else. You see, I had always expected, at this stage, to be one of those Leavers who could warmly back a compromise deal.

Why Britain Doesn’t Want Trump to Declassify Obamagate Docs

FISA declassification will assure all the actors who tried to harm America are finally exposed,” George Papadopoulos wrote on Twitter last week. “Alexander Downer, the Australian government, UK, and GCHQ (British intelligence). If FISA is not declassified, these foreign governments will try to interfere again in 2020 to hurt Trump and the movement.”

Meanwhile, the British spies who tripped up Papadopoulos, Carter Page, Michael Flynn, and others are demanding that Trump stop the release of any Obamagate docs. “UK spy chiefs in fight to stop Trump exposing their sources,” ran the headline on a Sydney Morning Herald story last week.

“MI6 chiefs are secretly battling Donald Trump to stop him publishing classified information linked to the Russian election meddling investigation,” according to the story. “The UK is warning he will undermine intelligence gathering if he releases pages of an FBI application to wiretap one of his former campaign advisers.”

The great smart meter fiasco: Millions of the dubious devices may have to be ripped out of homes because they won't work when you switch supplier

As many as four million smart meters may need to be ripped out and replaced, Money Mail can reveal.

This is because it may not ever be possible for them to work properly when customers switch supplier.

The Government has promised to launch a new system to fix the problem so that all customers can switch provider without issue, but it has been repeatedly delayed.

Now, an official report has claimed that their plan may not work for all of the meters affected.

The horror of the Islamic gangs in the UK (by Eugenia Fiore Bennati)

Pervert and inhumane. These are just two of the adjectives used by the judge in Leeds to describe 20 men, all of Pakistani origin, sentenced to Huddersfield. What apparently seems a quiet town in the heart of Britain hid, and according to several sources still hides, a traffic of disturbing child sexual exploitation. In other words, even girls aged only 11 have been turned into sex slaves. Such as? The gang lured prey on the street, leaving school or the bus station. Apparently, it could be a simple invitation to a party. But here, then, there were alcohol. Moreover, the drugs were inside the drinks. What happened next can be imagined. "At one point I was alone with one of them. That was the first time they raped me. And before that night I did not even know what sex was like" K. says, who has to remain anonymous for legal reasons. Then she adds a disturbing detail: "Often they told us that we were nothing but white trash".

Nationalism Not Globalism': Trump attacks May's Brexit deal

Trump attacks May's Brexit deal, says it may harm US-UK trade

US president says it "sounds like a great deal" for the EU, adding that Britain may not be able to trade with the US.

US President Donald Trump said on Monday that UK Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit agreement with the European Union (EU) may hamper trade between Washington and London.

Speaking to reporters on Monday, Trump said the deal that May struck with Brussels "sounds like a great deal" for the EU.

"I think we have to take a look at, seriously, whether or not the UK is allowed to trade, because you know right now, if you look at the deal, they may not be able to trade with us," he said.

"That wouldn't be a good thing. I don't think they meant that, I don't think the prime minister meant that, and hopefully she'll be able to do something about that," Trump said.

The Resolution Foundation said data released in the Budget showed British are families suffering the biggest squeeze in their finances since the 1950s.

It explained in a report published this morning that the UK economy will be £42bn smaller in 2022 than we thought it would be in March after official data indicated dismal growth forecasts in coming years.

EU-WIDE ‘ANTI-RUSSIAN PSY-OPS’ PROGRAM CONFIRMS UK GOVT FUNDING, ANONYMOUS DENIES LEAK

A network exposed by leaked documents as a Europe-wide PR operation aimed at curbing “Russian propaganda” has confirmed receiving money from the British government, while Anonymous has denied on Twitter that it’s behind the leak.
The Integrity Initiative (II) is a network claiming to fight disinformation that threatens democracy. A trove of alleged II documents, which purports to show costs and internal guidelines as well as names of individuals cooperating with it, has been published by people claiming to be part of the Anonymous collective. A major Anonymous-linked Twitter account has denied it was linked to the leak.

Responding to the leak on Monday, the organization said it did indeed receive funding from the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) for the past two years, but insisted that private donors were its primary source of money.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me unsurprised by this revelation.

But the one thing I can tell you, watching the unfolding of these horrific, US generated wars. (allegedly on Terror, but actually against the people who have the nerve to live over those resources the US and EU very much want to "liberate") ,is that kind of demonization, coupled with sanctions against said countries, means war is coming.

That incident yesterday, regarding Ukraine patrol boats, seized by the Russians, out of international waters, is a case in point, followed by the histrionics delivered by Nikki Haley at the UN's emergency session today, today, are a very good example of this kind of demonization.

And the other thing most presstitutes did NOT choose to cover, was extensive shelling, by the Ukrainian military, in Donbass yesterday.

Facebook spooked after MPs seize documents for privacy breach probe

British MPs have made unprecedented use of Parliamentary powers to send a serjeant at arms to the hotel where the boss of a US software biz was staying to seize potentially damaging documents on Facebook.

The cache allegedly shows internal messages – including from Mark Zuckerberg – that demonstrate the social network actively exploited a loophole in its policies on access to users' friends' data that allowed Cambridge Analytica to walk away with info on 87 million people.

The decision to seize the documents marks a major escalation in what was, until now, mostly a war of words between the parties. Zuck has flatly refused MPs' requests that he give evidence in their inquiry.

The chairman of the much-snubbed Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, Damian Collins, said the group had taken the extraordinary step because it had thus far "failed to get answers" from the firm directly.

Where Were The Brexit 'No-Deal' Warnings During The Scottish Independence Debate?

Authored by Bernard Connolly via The Spectator,

Four years ago, 45 per cent of Scottish voters favoured leaving the UK. Many of the warnings about the negative impact of independence on the Scottish economy were justified. But they did not extinguish a yearning for independence – and the same could be said of the EU referendum, with the caveat that this time a majority voted to leave, and many of the warnings were unjustified.

An ineradicable desire to get our country back triumphed over the Project Fear campaign conducted by the Treasury and the whole of the nomenklatura that sought to preserve position, power and privilege for itself and to suppress any notion that ordinary people, in Britain or

In part, that triumph came because of the risible – and dubiously motivated – nature of the economic argument for staying in as presented by assorted anti-Brexit ‘experts’; the ‘experts’ who habitually get the big questions wrong.

El Erian: Brexit & The Global Economy

The singular issue of Brexit has consumed the United Kingdom for two and a half years. The “if,” “how,” and “when” of the country’s withdrawal from the European Union, after decades of membership, has understandably dominated news coverage, and sidelined almost every other policy debate. Lost in the mix, for example, has been any serious discussion of how the UK should boost productivity and competitiveness at a time of global economic and financial fluidity.

At the same time, the rest of the world’s interest in Brexit has understandably waned. The UK’s negotiations with the EU have dragged on through multiple déjà vu moments, and the consensus is that the economic fallout will be felt far more acutely in Britain than in the EU, let alone in countries elsewhere.

MI6 Scrambling To Stop Trump From Releasing Classified Docs In Russia Probe

The UK's Secret Intelligence Service, otherwise known as MI6, has been scrambling to prevent President Trump from publishing classified materials linked to the Russian election meddling investigation, according to The Telegraph, stating that any disclosure would "undermine intelligence gathering if he releases pages of an FBI application to wiretap one of his former campaign advisers."

Trump's allies, however, are fighting back - demanding transparency and suggesting that the UK wouldn't want the documents withheld unless it had something to hide.

The Telegraph has talked to more than a dozen UK and US officials, including in American intelligence, who have revealed details about the row.

British spy chiefs have “genuine concern” about sources being exposed if classified parts of the wiretap request were made public, according to figures familiar with discussions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just what was so damning that the UK's and Australia's intelligence community are so dead against this release of information.

'Unacceptable': Spanish Prime Minister Rejects Brexit Plan Over Gibraltar

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said Wednesday his country would veto the Brexit draft over the disputed Gibraltar peninsula.

Spanish authorities expect the document to be fixed by the time the leaders meet this weekend, the prime minister said, or else his nation will "exercise its veto right."

Spanish Foreign Minister Josep Borrell stressed on Monday that Madrid would like to hold separate talks on Gibraltar during the UK transition period, and this should be written down in the political declaration on the EU-UK future relations.

Ice and soda water are contaminated with FAECES at Wetherspoon, Slug and Lettuce, and Hungry Horse – with levels being 'too high to count'

Ice and soda water served at some of the UK's leading pub chains are contaminated with faecal bacteria, an investigation has revealed.

Wetherspoon, Slug and Lettuce, Harvester, Hungry Horse and Two For One were all found to have faecal pathogens at levels 'too high to count'.

Among these bacteria were coliform strains, which can cause abdominal cramps, severe diarrhoea and fever in people with weak immune systems.

Experts claim the pathogens demonstrate poor cleaning standards at these pubs, with bacteria probably coming from staffs' unwashed hands, dirty ice trays and unhygienic soda dispensers.

EXCLUSIVE: Khan’s London City Hall Scraps Female Showers, Goes ‘Gender Neutral’

Sadiq Khan’s City Hall has replaced female toilets and shower rooms with “gender neutral” facilities, Breitbart London can reveal, prompting concerns the changes will be rolled out across the city and possibly put biological women at risk.

Sources inside the headquarters of the Greater London Authority (GLA) and the Mayor of London’s offices say the changes have been made in some of the staff areas on the upper floors.

Images passed to Breitbart London show new signs, which are claimed to have appeared this week, reading “Gender Neutral Toilets and Showers.” Some of the men’s toilets, with urinals, are still marked as for men.

The shower rooms have always been available to both men and women, but the sign on the door previously showed a man and a woman. The female toilets were previously marked as for females.

May’s greatest delusion: ending EU jurisdiction

Theresa May’s most outrageous lie is that she is ending European jurisdiction over Britain.

You don’t need to read the nearly 600 pages of the draft agreement to work out that she is lying: just remember that she promises also that she will keep Britain tied to EU laws on customs, the environment, labour standards, social standards, and the fiscal costs thereof.

Ask her this: how can she keep Britain tied to EU laws without being subject to EU jurisdiction?

Please ask her, because journalists don’t ask her. Most journalists seem too lazy, ignorant, or biased to compare May’s lies against her draft agreement.

So please allow me to reveal her agreement’s dirty secrets. In fact, the whole agreement, and every EU law, agency, programme, activity, in which Britain remains, and every aspect of the customs union itself, are subject to the European Commission (the unelected part of the EU’s executive) and the European Court of Justice or ECJ.

Britain's enemy is not Russia but its own ruling class, UN report confirms

As the UK political establishment rips itself to pieces over Brexit, a far greater crisis continues to afflict millions of victims of Tory austerity.

A devastating UN report into poverty in the UK provides incontrovertible evidence that the enemy of the British people is the very ruling class that has gone out of its way these past few years to convince them it is Russia.

Professor Philip Alston, in his capacity as the United Nations Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, spent two weeks touring the United Kingdom. He did so investigating the impact of eight years of one of the most extreme austerity programs among advanced G20 economies in response to the 2008 financial crash and subsequent global recession.

Borders & barriers: Could Spain derail Brexit because of Gibraltar?

As Spanish PM Pedro Sánchez threatens to reject the draft Brexit deal unless it clarifies the state of future talks on Gibraltar, Birmingham City University lecturer Dr. Arantza Gomez Arana speaks to RT about that possibility.

Prime Minister Sánchez underlined Spain's position when it comes to the draft agreement on Tuesday, stating that it must be modified to make clear that Gibraltar's future will rely solely on talks between Madrid and London.

"As of today, if there are no changes with respect to Gibraltar, Spain will vote no to the agreement on Brexit," Sanchez said. He also drove that message home on Twitter.

But what exactly would a "no" vote from Spain really mean for Brexit? Dr. Arantza Gomez Arana, a lecturer from Birmingham City University's School of Social Sciences and a member of its Centre for Brexit Studies broke down the situation for RT.

UK Church boycotts companies profiting from Israel occupation of Palestine

Quakers in Britain has today become the first church in the UK to announce it will not invest any of its centrally-held funds in companies profiting from the Israeli occupation of Palestine.

In a press release, the faith group said that the trustees of the church took the decision in light of its long tradition of ethical investment. The church said they refused to “profit from the occupation of Palestine,” pointing to its historical divestment from apartheid South Africa, the fossil fuel industry, arms companies and even the transatlantic slave trade.

Paul Parker, recording clerk for Quakers in Britain, said:

Our long history of working for a just peace in Palestine and Israel has opened our eyes to the many injustices and violations of international law arising from the military occupation of Palestine by the Israeli government.

Quakers first UK church to boycott companies profiting from Israeli occupation

Britain's Quakers announced on Monday that they will not invest any of their centrally held funds in companies that are profiting from Israel's occupation of Palestine, making it the first church in the United Kingdom to do so.

“Our long history of working for a just peace in Palestine and Israel has opened our eyes to the many injustices and violations of international law arising from the military occupation of Palestine by the Israeli government," Paul Parker, recording clerk for Quakers in Britain, said in a statement.

“With the occupation now in its 51st year, and with no end in near sight, we believe we have a moral duty to state publicly that we will not invest in any company profiting from the occupation."

Israel has occupied East Jerusalem, the West Bank and effectively the Gaza Strip since the 1967 Middle East war and has since built settlements there and profited from the use of confiscated Palestinian lands, in contravention of international law.

Labour leader Corbyn calls for general election and tells business to reject May's 'blindfold Brexit'

UK Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn on Monday urged business leaders to reject the government’s “botched, worst-of-all-worlds deal” on Brexit and called for a general election.

Corbyn, leader of the opposition and long-term critic of the EU, closed the annual Confederation of British Industry (CBI) conference in London on Monday. The CBI represents 190,000 British businesses, who employ a combined 7 million staff.

Corbyn told the 1,500-strong audience that UK prime minister Theresa May’s draft Brexit deal, which was announced last week, is a “blindfold Brexit” and will “leave the country in an indefinite halfway house without a real say over our future.”

Labour will vote down the deal in Parliament, Corbyn said, and he argued that a general election is now the “only sensible course of action.”

RICHARD LITTLEJOHN: So this is what a very British coup looks like - a bid to overturn the will of the British people

Some of you will recall the novel A Very British Coup, subsequently made into an award-winning television series by Channel 4.

It was written by Labour MP Chris Mullin, published in 1982, and revolved around a conspiracy by the military, the media, big business and MI5 to bring down a Left-wing government.

At the time, the plot was entirely credible, since Britain was riven by strikes and revolution was in the air. I read the book as a young labour and industrial correspondent, and it made sense to me.

The Bennites were in the ascendancy, Margaret Thatcher was horribly unpopular and it looked as if the wizened Hampstead Leftie Michael Foot — Worzel Gummidge, as Private Eye dubbed him — would be our next Prime Minister.

Amber Rudd accuses UN of a 'political attack' on the British Government after envoy's damning poverty report as she vows to improve Universal Credit in Commons return

Amber Rudd has dismissed a UN special report on extreme poverty in the UK in a combative return to front-line politics.

Ms Rudd, who returned to the Commons as Work and Pensions Secretary after Esther McVey quit in a row over the Brexit deal, accused UN special rapporteur Philip Alston of being 'extraordinarily political' after he published a preliminary report condemning the Government's attitude towards poverty.

Mr Alston, who published his findings on Friday after a 12-day tour of the UK, accused ministers of being 'in a state of denial' over the extent of poverty in the Britain.

Britain's enemy is not Russia but its own ruling class, UN report confirms

As the UK political establishment rips itself to pieces over Brexit, a far greater crisis continues to afflict millions of victims of Tory austerity.
A devastating UN report into poverty in the UK provides incontrovertible evidence that the enemy of the British people is the very ruling class that has gone out of its way these past few years to convince them it is Russia.

Professor Philip Alston, in his capacity as the United Nations Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, spent two weeks touring the United Kingdom. He did so investigating the impact of eight years of one of the most extreme austerity programs among advanced G20 economies in response to the 2008 financial crash and subsequent global recession.

INSIDE THE BRITISH ARMY'S SECRET INFORMATION WARFARE MACHINE

Explaining their work, the soldiers used phrases I had heard countless times from digital marketers: “key influencers", “reach", “traction". You normally hear such words at viral advertising studios and digital research labs. But the skinny jeans and wax moustaches were here replaced by the crisply ironed shirts and light patterned camouflage of the British Army. Their surroundings were equally incongruous – the 77th’s headquarters were a mix of linoleum flooring, long corridors and swinging fire doors. More Grange Hill than Menlo Park. Next to a digital design studio, soldiers were having a tea break, a packet of digestives lying open on top of a green metallic ammo box. Another sign on the wall declared, “Behavioural change is our USP [unique selling point]”. What on Earth was happening?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the Brits are out there, "digitally"marketing" wars and military campaigns, we, in the Peace Movement, need to be marketing the case for peace ever more gently and intelligently than ever.

Children’s show is propaganda for Putin, say critics

A programme about a mischievous girl and a bear watched by millions of British children is accused of being a “soft propaganda” tool for the Kremlin (Mark Bridge writes). The English-language Masha and the Bear has more than 4.18 million subscribers on YouTube and, in various languages, the animated series has gained 40 billion views across 13 channels. Children enjoy watching the feisty little girl and her gentle giant protector. However, critics in Russia’s neighbouring states have claimed the series, from a Moscow studio, is part of the country’s propaganda machine. Professor Anthony Glees, of the University of Buckingham, an intelligence expert, said: “Masha is feisty, even rather nasty, but also plucky"...

Operation ‘No deal’? UK army braces for Brexit chaos as May faces fierce rejection of divorce plan

The military is reportedly drafting contingency plans that could see British troops deployed in the streets, as the prospects of a chaotic Brexit seem increasingly realistic, with Theresa May facing a potential no-confidence vote.

“About 20 officers who normally oversee Operation Temperer... were ordered last week to step up no-deal Brexit planning,” the Sunday Times reported, citing a well-placed military source.

While Operation Temperer officers are reserved as a response to terror attacks, this time they were tasked with devising a strategy to maintain public order and secure the flow of medical supplies to hospitals. As many as 10,000 members of the military could be deployed on British streets should UK exit the EU on March 29 with no deal with Brussels.

Surprise, Surprise: UK May Have to Stay in EU Until December 2022 – Barnier

After many months of tense negotiations over the terms of Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union, it looks like Brussels has realised that the originally set withdrawal deadline of 29 March 2019 can hardly be met.

EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier has proposed extending the period during which Britain will stay in the EU Single Market and Customs Union by a maximum of two years, The Sun reported.

The 40 "Hidden Horrors" Of Theresa May's Brexit Deal

After a chaotic week that saw seven of Theresa May's senior cabinet ministers resign (including her second Brexit commissioner in six months), London business leaders poured salt in the prime minister's wounds late Friday by leaking the text of a letter they will reportedly be sending to MPs next week urging them to reject May's 'best of all possible deals' and instead advocate for a "no deal" Brexit where the UK and EU fall back on WTO rules, according to the Telegraph.

After more than a year of increasingly fraught negotiations, May has pulled off an incredible feat - she and her cabinet have produced a deal that is hated by both Brexiteers and remainers alike.

UK could ask for Brexit transition beyond 2020 – business minister

The UK could ask for an even longer Brexit transition period. Business Secretary Greg Clark told BBC radio that it could now stretch until 2022 – two years after it was supposed to finish.

The UK is set to formally leave the bloc on March 29, 2019; although a planned transition period means that London will remain a member until 2020.

Clark, upon being questioned by the BBC about an extension, revealed that “it would be at our request.”

The DOG accused of a hate crime after fouling outside a home in just one of 2,500 cases probed over two years

We all know it’s irritating, unsightly and unhygienic, but one case of dog fouling has been logged by police as a racist hate crime.

The incident is among numerous alleged hate crimes uncovered by The Mail on Sunday that critics say are so petty they are undeserving of police time and expense.

Further examples in a list of more than 2,500 alleged ‘hate incidents’ logged by the Metropolitan Police in 2015 and 2016 include:

  • An envelope that had been opened and resealed;
  • An accident involving a car that bore a Remembrance poppy;
  • A disputed line call in a tennis match;
  • A dead rat found in a garden;
  • And a man telling library staff he was campaigning for Brexit.

    SURGICAL ROBOT "SPIRALS OUT OF CONTROL", KILLS MAN AS DOCS SIPPED LATTES

    In the name of scientific “progress,” Newcastle’s Freeman Hospital in the United Kingdom recently tried to pioneer the use of a surgical robot that it tasked with repairing a patient’s damaged heart valve, only to have the machine go completely bonkers and ultimately kill the man on the operating table.

    According to reports, this first-time-use robot not only physically assaulted a living medic while attempting to conduct its programmed surgery, but also implanted stitches into the patient’s heart in a manner that physicians present during the fiasco described as not being in “an organised fashion.”

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Watch for this hospital, all who attended this surgery, and the company which manufactured the robot, to be sued out of existence.

    University students hit by wave of fake tax refund emails

    University students have been bombarded with fake tax refund emails in the last month, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has warned.

    It is estimated that hundreds of thousands of students have been targeted in a bid to steal their banking and personal details.

    The fraudsters appear to be using .ac.uk email addresses that look genuine, in order to avoid detection.

    HMRC said email, text or voicemail would never be used for real refunds.

    Steve who? Unknown MP named as new Brexit Secretary

    The little-known MP for North East Cambridgeshire had been serving as a minister at the Department of Health and Social Care. He will replace Dominic Raab, who quit earlier this week over the EU withdrawal agreement.

    Unlike his predecessors, Barclay's role will be limited to getting the Brexit bill through parliament and to preparing the country for the process. May will lead the negotiations personally.

    Huge rise in people being sent 'convincing' TV licence scam email which aims to trick victims into handing over bank details

    More than 2,500 reports of phony emails were sent to Action Fraud in September and October alone from those who have found one in their inbox.

    The scam emails aim to get unsuspecting people to hand over personal and bank details to fraudsters who pretend to be from the TV Licensing department, according to the UK's national reporting centre for fraud and cybercrime.

    EU BLUNDER: Michel Barnier made THIS serious 'strategic error' in Brexit talks

    Mr Portillo said the European Union “humiliated” Britain in its Withdrawal Agreement which has been ridiculed by both Brexiteer and Remainer politicians.

    Speaking on BBC This Week, Mr Portillo said: “I think the European Union has made a strategic error, short of marching Mrs May into a railway carriage in Compiègne Forest, they could not have produced a more humiliating surrender.

    “And all of history tells us that when you humiliate countries with a surrender, it doesn’t go well thereafter.”

    May is either ‘completely useless’ or ‘plots’ to keep UK in EU – UKIP leader to RT

    Speaking to RT, Gerard Batten ridiculed the very idea that May was allowed to head the withdrawal process as she has always been a hardline remainer, who nevertheless “does not satisfy” either side. He claims she has negotiated a deal under which the UK doesn’t really leave the EU.

    “She is completely useless. Either this is a deliberate plot to actually not take us out of the European Union or she is completely useless. You can’t have it either way, she’s certainly not done a competent job,” Batten told RT.

    The politician also accused May of having utter disrespect for UK interests, saying that the situation over Brexit is “unparalleled in British history,” as it is ruled over by a leader “prepared to sell out the country to a foreign power, which is precisely what she’s done.”

    Rees-Mogg twists the knife: Brexiteer names FOUR contenders (not including himself) who could do a better job of Brexit after launching humiliating attack on PM in the Commons and making a bid to oust her as leader

    Jacob Rees-Mogg sensationally launched his bid to remove Theresa May today threatening her position in the Commons before holding a press conference naming possible successors.

    The hardline Brexiteer insisted his putsch was not about personal ambition and named Boris Johnson, Dominic Raab, David Davis and Penny Mordaunt as 'very capable of leading a proper Brexit'.

    But he said Mrs May was delivering on Brexit as he joined the ranks of Tory MPs formally calling for a vote of no confidence in the Prime Minister.

    If 48 Tory MPs write to Sir Graham Brady, the chairman of their backbench 1922 Committee, a vote will be held.

    Mr Rees-Mogg's dramatic move today makes it almost certain the threshold has been met.
