UK government survives key Brexit parliamentary vote

Britain’s Conservative-propped-up-by-Northern-Irish-DUP government survived a move to strengthen parliament’s power to intervene if no divorce deal is reached with Brussels by the end of this year. A rebellion by pro-EU MPs was headed off after they were promised a “meaningful vote” on the outcome.

British Prime Minister Theresa May’s position would have neen under threat had she not won the vital parliamentary vote on Wednesday. The victory will allow her government to offer lawmakers a take-it-or-leave-it decision on any final Brexit deal.

MPs voted by 319 to 303 to reject an amendment to the EU (Withdrawal) Bill, which sets the legal framework for the UK to leave the European Union.

Pro-EU politicians spent months lobbying for parliament to be given the opportunity to stop Britain crashing out of the EU without a future trade deal, which they say will be a disaster for the British economy.

May offered parliament a vote on the final terms of any deal with Brussels, but has rejected what she sees as any attempt to undermine the chances of a strong Brexit deal. Those opposed to a hard Brexit wanted the option to return negotiators to talks with the EU, rather than crashing out with no trade deal at all — something the government says will weaken its position in the eyes of Brussels.

UK Taxpayer Hands £6 Million a Year to Islamic Charities

Around £6 million of taxpayers’ money is being handed each year to Islamic charities with extremist tendencies, “whose only goal is to damage our society” in some cases, a report has found.

The report, by The Henry Jackson Society, accuses some taxpayer-supported groups of backing “the spread of harmful non-violent extremist views that are not illegal; by providing platforms, credibility and support to a network of extremists operating in the UK”.

Around £6 million of taxpayers’ money is being handed each year to Islamic charities with extremist tendencies, “whose only goal is to damage our society” in some cases, a report has found.

The report, titled Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing: How Islamist Extremists Exploit the UK Charitable Sector which is published by The Henry Jackson Society, accuses some taxpayer-supported ‘charities of being thinly disguised political activists and backing the spread of harmful extremist views that are not illegal but encourage illgal acts by providing platforms, credibility and support to a network of extremists operating in the UK.

The document states that the £6 million “is likely the tip of the iceberg”.

The authors studied 30 charities and highlight several cases, including the Islamic Research Foundation International (IRFI), which is chaired by Zakir Naik, an Islamic fundamentalist hate preacher who was banned from entering Britain by Prime Minister Theresa May when she served as was Home Secretary. Another, Helping Households Under Great Stress (HHUGS), is described as “an institutionally problematic charity, with extreme and illiberal individuals involved at all levels”. It was registered with the Charity Commission in 2006 with the aim of “relieving the financial and emotional hardship of Muslim detainees/former detainees and families”.

The charity holds segregated, men-only fundraising events and invited Ahmad Jibril, a U.S. based hate preacher who allegedly inspired one of the London Bridge terrorists, to speak at one of their fundraisers in 2013.

The report claims that figures from across the Islamist spectrum, including Muslim Brotherhood members are active in the charity sector. The Muslim Brotherhood has been linked to the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), the UK’s largest Islamic umbrella group and also a registered charity.

Commenting on her report, Emma Webb, Research Fellow at the Centre for the Response to Radicalisation and Terrorism at The Henry Jackson Society, said: “At a time of controversy over the size and capabilities of Britain’s Armed Forces and the pressure faced by public services, it is outrageous that millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money is unwittingly being handed over to extremists whose only goal is to damage our society. The £6 million figure is a minimum, with the evidence suggesting that this is only the tip of the iceberg.

“This report illustrates how these charities operate like a cartel, with extremist speakers involved in multiple organisations, presenting themselves as the voice of ‘true’ Islam and squeezing out moderate voices. The charities give them a platform, disseminating their literature and giving them credibility and access.

“Charitable status is not a right, it is a privilege. The public correctly expect that charities should work for society, not against it.

“Action is needed now if we are to stop this network of Islamist extremists from continuing to use charities and taxpayers’ money to fund the spread of divisive, illiberal and intolerant views within our own communities.”

HHUGS told The Times it had a healthy relationship with the Charity Commission. It added: “Hhugs has a risk-assessment policy in place to which all speakers are subjected.”

The IRFI said: “These are historic, unfounded and politically motivated accusations thrown into a speculative report, which are in no way reflective of the inclusive, harmonious nature of our charity.”

Corbyn Comes Out: UK Can’t Stay in EU Single Market After Brexit

He’s been a lifelong opponent of the unemocratic, protectionist EU who has been held to ransome for a year and a half by the rabid remainmers in his party. now at last Jeremy Corvyn has come out of the closet and said there can be no half – arsed, half – in, half – out arrangements, once we leave we cannot retain membership of the single market.

After meeting the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said that after Brexit the UK cannot remain inside the European Union’s (EU) Single Market zone.

Many of Labour’s core voters support Brexit, but party activists are fanatically pro-EU and led by the shadoe cabinet spokesman on Brexit, Sir Kier SStormer, have been urging the Mr. Corbyn to campaing for the UK to remain part of the Single Market.

However, Mr. Corbyn has now stated unequivocally this is not an option. He also told party members he would not be attending a summit on the Single Market convened by the europhile Scottish National Party’s Westminster leader Ian Blackford, The Guardian reports.

The market is a free trade area, he said, but also a protectionist bloc erecting trade barriers to the rest of the world. Members are not allowed to control their own trade policy or strike trade deals – a central ambition of Brexit supporters – and are forced to accept unlimited mass migration and open borders.

While Corbyn is generally sympathetic to immigration, he has always complained that the EU’s way of imposing policies formulated by unelected bureaucrats on the elected governments of member states to be unacceptable violations of his democratic principles.

Prime Minister Theresa the Appeaser May has promised the UK will leave the Customs Union and Single Market in accord with the referendum result, but last week revealed the Tories are trying to work a typical flanker by proposing the UK could enter an almost identical Customs Union with the EU after Brexit.

Also last week, a Tory think tank claiming the support of 120 Brexit-supporting MPs, said they could block a final divorce deal unless the prime minister promised to leave the Customs Union and Single Market.

Top German Politician Warns EU Determination To Punish Britain Will Harm Europe.

A leading German member of the European Parliament has warned that top EU negotiators frustrate Brexit in order to punish Britain and keep other Eurosceptic member-states in line as opposition to the Union’s authoritarian style of governance grows all around Europe.

Hans-Olaf Henkel, deputy chairman of the European Conservatives and Reformists Group – to which Britain’s ruling Conservative Party is aligned– claimed that Belgium’s former prime minister Guy Verhofstadt and France’s former foreign minister Michel Barnier “want to make a mess out of this whole unhappy situation” in an article published by The Times.

Verhofstadt, once described by UKIP’s Nigel Farage as “high priest” in “the temple of European federalism” by Brexit campaign leader is the European Parliament’s chosen representative in the Brexit negotiations.

verhofstadt-brexit
EU Brexit negotiator Verhofstadt responds to Nigel Farage?

Barnier,  a former member of the unelected European Commission (Euronazis), as well as being Frane’s former foreign affairs chief, is the bloc’s chief negotiator.

“Mr Verhofstadt is an ambitious politician who wants to achieve a United States of Europe,” wrote Henkel, alleging that the attitude he typifies “was responsible in no small part” for the British public voting to Leave the European Union in June 2016.

“Mr Verhofstadt now wants to punish the British,” he continued.

“My impression is that Mr Barnier wants to do the same. The reason is simple. They would seek to make sure that Brexit is such a catastrophe that no country dares to take the step of leaving the EU again.”

Unfortunately many nations that are far more natural trading partners for Britain than the EU are falling over themselves in their eagerness to do business with British firms one we are free of the suffocating blanket of EU bureaucracy.

In Henkel’s estimation, failure to reach a reasonable separation agreement Britain would be “a terrible situation for us all,” he said, adding, “in Germany we value the ties we have with the British”. He probably means that German politicians are crapping themselves at the prospect of having to explain to German taxpayers just why they have to pick up the tab for the Union’s dept crippled ‘Club Mediterranean’ nations one the only other net contributor to the EU treasury has gone.

The UK will be the Eurozone’s single largest export market after Brexit, and Leave campaigner and former environment and rural affairs minister Owen Paterson MP has recently noted that Germany sold around 950,000 cars to British buyers in 2016 alone.

Other European leaders, such as Hungarian foreign minister Péter Szijjártó and Flemish minister-president Geert Bourgeois, have also said that attempting to “punish” the British would be damaging for the EU, with European exporters losing competitiveness and market share in the UK (mostly thanks to bureaucratic restrictions on trade and idiotic labour laws pushing up costs,)  as it reclaims its powers to conduct an independent trade policy and strikes deals with global economies such as Australia India, and the United States.

As Third Rate Celebs Are Paid Millions, BBC admits 70% of convicted TV Licence non-payers are women

The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), after a long battle was this week forced to publish details of what its top earners are paid. Sure enough, the explosion of outrage following the revelations might even have shocked the smug, self – serving, self – righteous twats who run the corporation or suck up shitloads of licence payers’ money for doing very little.

Foremost among targets for public ire are the Brexit-hating cultural Marxists and left wing propagandists the Corporation passes off as comedy. How, for example, can the £2.2million paid to Chris Evans, a radio presenter of outstanding mediocrity whose main achievement over the past two decades has been to ruin the BBC’s most popular TV show, the long running Top Gear, in just six episodes. There are plenty of other zero talents profiting from Auntie’s profligacy however.

Some of the most hyped autocue parrots have even publicly gloated over their good fortune at the expense of BBC licence fee payer, but perhaps they don’t know just how many lives they are ruining, or their victims?

The BBC licence fee is a coercive, regressive, stealth tax. It costs £145.50 ($189.00) for every television owner in the United Kingdom who watches any live television. If you fail to pay up, the corporation will send round hired goons who get bonuses for catching what they call “evaders” such as a war veteran with dementia, and a young mother in a women’s refuge.

In fact, the BBC disproportionately targets women when it prosecutes for licence fee evasion, as The Register noted just days before the salaries were released:

Of the 184,595 people across the UK charged with non-payment of the TV Licence by Capita TV Licensing, 21,300 were found not guilty – and 90 people were jailed for failing to pay court-issued fines. The figure for charges includes out-of-court disposals.

140,000 of those charged were taken to court, where an astonishing 101,000 women were found guilty.

What the BBC is really prosecuting is the idea that people cannot afford their tax, as Tory MP Andrew Bridgen noted: “If someone cannot afford to pay the £145.50 licence then they are highly unlikely to be in a position to pay a £1,000 fine. People are being criminalised where their only crime is being poor and this needs to stop.”

It is a long established tradition of course that the greedy, faceless bastards who control domocratically elected governments enforce unjust laws involving non payment of taxes more brutally that laws against murder, rape, arson and theft, so it should be no surprise that dozens of people, including single mothers, impoverished var veterans and victims of dementia have been imprisoned for not paying this pernicious tax.

A Daily Mail investigation last year discovered that Capita, the contractor that operates the TV Licensing system as a high-pressure sales operation, with door-to-door salespeople being offered large bonuses for getting people to sign up to the £147/yr licence.

Eleven per cent of TV Licensing prosecutions in 2016 resulted in the defendant being found not guilty.

“This number of unsuccessful prosecutions lends weight to the view that cases are initiated on a speculative basis,” said Caroline Levesque-Bartlett, who gathered the data using Freedom of Information laws. A 2012 study found that one in ten of all criminal prosecutions in England and Wales were brought by Capita TV Licensing, which enforces the Telly Tax on behalf of the BBC.

The TV Licence funds the BBC, including its all-dominant news empire. Failure to pay the Telly Tax, which is payable if you watch live TV or stream BBC iPlayer online, is a criminal offence.

Hungarian Leader Says Soros-Funded Groups Are Making Money From The Immigration Crisis
While Germany pursues its policy of replacing expensive German labour with cheap third woeld labour at act as fodder for its profit hungry factories, and the French government obediently follow their German masters while Britain stands aside, it is the poorer E U nations, led by Hungary, that have at last acted to stop the flood of unskilled, often illiterate refugees from third world nations flooding into EU nations.

Americans Don’t Know that the Rest of the World Views U.S. as Biggest Danger, Rogue State

Americans are stupid, right? Well it is a generalization and generalisations are usually both right and wrong. Not all Americans are stupid of course, I know many who are very intelligent and highly articulate. But as in Britain, France, Austrilia, Russia, Germany, China etc. there are stupid people in America. What we mean however in saying Americans are stupid is that overall American citizens tend to be less well informed on current events and general knowledge that Europeans, Asians and South Americans…

Sham Marriages To Beat Immigration Laws Are Out Of Control
With main immigration news on being dominated by the Mediterranean boat people crisis and the masses at Calais hoping to stow away in a freight container, we forget that another way of getting somebody into the country is the sham marriage. Numbers involved may be small, but it is another indication of our governments’ failure to address the immigration problem.

Electoral Reform in Britain – Is It Time for True Proportional Representation?
After every British election, when around a quarter of voters find the party they voted for is hardly represented in the House Of Commons (In 2015, 8 per cent of the votes equals just 8 of the 650 members, while a party with 13% has just one), people who believe in democracy try to start a debate about reforming the voting system. And as ever, supporters of the two main parties, which benefit most from the current undemocratic system, try to stifle debate.

Elderly face NHS discrimination as new United Nations plan defines death targets for nations
Leaders of the western powers, anxious it seems to divest themselves of responsibility while extending and tightening their grip on power, are happy to promote the United Nations as a de facto World Government. The problem is the United Nations employs as advisers and bureaucrats many people whose authoritarian and racist political position makes Herr Hitler look positively liberal.

EU Refugee Quota Scheme Unravels

The European Union (EU) faces many battles, from the one to stop the sigle currency system falling apart as nations like Greece, Spain, Italy and Portugal find the costs ofr membership outweigh the benefits, to it’s latest, the Mediterranean boat people crisis as more and more people try to cross from North African to Europe illegally, with the help of human tafficking racketeers.

Mediterranean Immigrant Crisis – EU plays politics with lives
The story of the migrants trying to cross the Mediterranean from the coast of north Africa to Italy is a humanitarian crisis. But when the British government offered Royal Navy ships to help with rescue operations and in bringing to justice the ruthless criminals who take exhorbitant feees then put hundreds of lives at risk by herding their clients onto unseaworthy, overloaded boats, European Union officials started to attach political conditions to UK help

How Politically Correct Thinking Leads Into A Moral Maze
Being a leftie can be hard work however, with so many of the causes they must embrace being in direct opposition to other favoured causes, lefties encounter a lot of moral dilemmas. So being a believer in all -isms, the kind of idiot who equates calls for immigration controls with South African Apartheid or Stalinist genocide and is quite sure that equality means members of favoured minorities should be given me the privileged status of an elite class, can get hairy at times.

Human Rights – A Straitjacket On Liberty.
We are in a fight to retain our right to free speech in the face of an onslaught of politically correct tyranny. While a speech Barack Obama made in Cairo is celebrated even though it brought back the spectre of medieval Sharia law to secular Muslims, the word liberal is hajacked by authoritarians who ride the political bandwagon and offer doublespeak, ambiguity and weasel words.. We hear much about equality and being fair but see little of either and no common sense.

Whether Tom Chivers Is A Science Writer, A Hack Journalist Or A Cunt Is A Matter Of Semantics
More political propaganda from the loose bowelled left (they pump verbal diorrhea at us all the time) concerning whether it is a ‘hate crime’ to decline to address transgender males as “she”. Once again in something that is a personal matter, the self styled metrosexual elite have elected themselves as guardians of politically correct morality and are trying to impose their emotionally retarded views on all of us.

Gay and same sex marriage: The Bigotry And Intolerance Of Those Who Describe Themselves As The Liberal Left
With same sex marriage made legal in Britain we face the same kind of witch hunts against businesses that do not want to deal with beareded queens in bridal gowns as the liberal bigots and gay nazis are launching in the USA. As many of us new media common sense merchants predicted, once the principle was accepted in law, nobody would be allowed to opt out of supporting these bullies.

Voter Backlash against Media UKIP Smears Is Good For Democracy
Pontificating celebrities and media luvvies, don’t you hate them. What gives these mostly has been the idea that their opinion is worth more than the opinion of everyman and woman. What makes these people who might have been talented before theiy disapeared up their own arses (yes I’m talking about you Eddie Izzard, Lenny Henry, Ben Elton, J K Rowling, just about every Mocker on Mock The Week. Even if you were still funny guys, nobody gives a fuck what you think about politics.

The success of the Queen’s the Diamond Jubilee shows the authoritarian progressives’ efforts to destroy our culture and ancient traditions have failed.

For the past couple of years the ravings of Trotskyites on the ‘progressive left’ has carried an increasing tone of desperation. Oligarchic collectivism failed dismally under New Labour and a backlash against politically correct thinking was gathering momentum. The came Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond jubilee to remind us all of the cultural values our national community is built on and the traditions that the hope and change but mostly change brigade so hate.


The Brave Class Warriors Of UK Uncut

Simon Hope is working-class hero. Who says? Well, he does for a start. Not that Simon is working class himself He is one of the exclusively middle class denizens of the UK Uncut movement which protests against the goverrnment’s austerity programme and policy of cuts to public spending, although no cuts have actually been made yet though the rate of increase in public spending has been slowed. UK Uncut are borderline posh people who have decided to carry fighting the class wars of the past on behalf of …

London: Hezbollah Terrorist Flag Flies Over Muslim mayor’s city as Anti-Israel Al-Quds March Insults Jews

The annual anti-Israel al-Quds Day marchtook place through the streets of London on Sunday, condoned by London’s terrorist sympathising Muslim mayor Sadiq Khan and with the flag of the banned terrorist group Hezbollah prominent among the marchers banners.

The distinctive yellow Hezbollah flag contains the image of a military assault rifle at its centre and an Arabic inscription that reads, “The Party of Allah Shall Be Triumphant — The Islamic Resistance in Lebanon.” An obvious provocation to secular and Chritian britain and an insult to British Jews.

Al-Quds Day was begun in 1979 by the late Iranian leader Ayatollah Khomeini to call for the State of Israel to be destroyed. Organisers claim it “unites Muslims for the freedom of the oppressed in Palestine and beyond” (or translated into plain English, calls for Muslims to kill infidels,” and it is co-run by the Islamic Human Rights Commission.

Hezbollah is an illegal, anti-Semitic terrorist organisation, designated as a terror organization in its entirety by the Arab League, Bahrain, Canada, France, Israel, Australia, the Netherlands, and the United States. But the snivelling cowards who have wormed their way into power in the European Union and the United Kingdom, in order to pursue their spieless policy of surrendering to extremism, maintain there is a difference between the group’s military and political wings, seeking only to proscribe the former.

Raphi Bloom, chairman of North West Friends of Israel group, said that despite repeated requests to Mr. Khan and a petition supported by almost 24,000 signatures calling for the event to be cancelled, the city’s leader has remained steadfast in his refusal to intervene. The petition says in part:

“After the terrible recent terrorist events in Manchester and London this display of extremism has no place on the streets of the UK. Allowing this march to go ahead will send a worrying message to the UK’s Jewish community and call into question the commitment of the Mayor of London to eradicate extremism and anti Semitism.”

For his part, Mr. Khan said he had no power to intervene. This is a lie, but what else would we expect from a man whose support for the extremist Muslim brotherhood is well documented.

Meanwhile, terror attack fears have forced organisers of Britain’s largest pro-Israel event to scrap plans for this year’s edition of A Night to Honour Israel. Sponsored by the Christians United for Israel (CUFI) organization, the evening of celebration was scheduled for June 22 at an undisclosed venue in Westminster.
