 BRITAIN NEWS AND ALERT's - Page 2 Empty Ban sex-change surgery for children

UK could shock the world if it bans sex-change surgery for children
Boris Johnson's govt has rightfully expressed concern that youth under age 18 are too young to make a 'transition' decision that they might later regret.
Mon Apr 27, 2020 - 6:28 pm EST
April 27, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) -- According to The Telegraph, UK Minister for Women and Equalities Liz Truss has announced that the British government will be taking steps to ban children from undergoing sex-change surgeries before age 18. This is a genuinely stunning move: While regular readers will know that I preferred Prime Minister Boris Johnson to the anti-Semitic socialist Jeremy Corbyn, I was not optimistic that Johnson’s government would actually enact any socially conservative policies.


It is a sign of the times, of course, that a law banning the genital mutilation of children with gender dysphoria is even necessary. The United Kingdom has seen a breathtaking spike of children identifying as transgender over the past several years — the British government vowed to investigate why there was a 4,000 percent increase in children seeking to “transition” in less than a decade back in 2018, and the British press has drawn attention to the fact that many who have chosen to transition have gone on to regret their decision.


PETITION: Stop 'sex change' operations during coronavirus crisis Sign the petition here.




At the moment, children under age 18 are permitted to begin “transitioning” as long as they have parental permission, but Truss has now stated that the Tory government plans to ban “genital reconstructive surgery” in order to “protect them from making those irreversible decisions” — at least until they are older. Trans groups, unsurprisingly, have pushed back, claiming that preventing children from making a decision that will dictate the course of the rest of their lives before they are legally allowed to drink, smoke, or vote is introducing “a new form of inequality into British medical practice.”


A representative of the trans group Mermaids, an organization that claims to support transgender children, stated that this inequality was transparent due to the fact that such a ban would be “effectively treating transgender teenagers as less capable than their cisgender peers.” This criticism rather misses the point, as presumably this ban would prevent anyone under 18, regardless of how they choose to identify, from undergoing a sex-change surgery.


Fortunately, the government appears to reject that view, with Truss stating that the move was aimed at “making sure that the under 18s are protected from decisions they could make, that are irreversible in the future … I believe strongly that adults should have the freedom to lead their lives as they see fit, but I think it’s very important that while people are still developing their decision-making capabilities that we protect them from making irreversible decisions.”

The details of the government’s plans have not yet been revealed (and won’t be until summer), and Truss only indicated that this is the path currently being planned while giving evidence to the Women and Equalities Select Committee earlier this month regarding reforms to the Gender Recognition Act. In addition to the proposed ban, Truss also stated that the government will be moving to protect “single-sex spaces,” which seems to indicate willingness to ensure that simply identifying as female will not be enough to access female-only facilities. 


According to The Telegraph, Truss stated that the government would be working to protect transgender rights “whilst maintaining the proper checks and balances in the system.” This, of course, will not be good enough for trans activists, who state vehemently that denying biological males identifying as female access to female-only spaces, expressing concern that the transgender phenomenon among children is unprecedented and dangerous, and that saying “transition” — especially when pursued at a young age — can destroy lives renders you an ugly transphobe.


The government will be facing a firestorm from the LGBT movement in the months ahead, as this proposal marks one of the first significant government pushbacks to their agenda in years. I’m very encouraged that Johnson’s Conservative government appears to be willing to actually implement a common-sense agenda on this issue, but the trans movement is sure to utilize every weapon in their arsenal — and there are many — to stop this from actually becoming a reality. The good news is that the majority of people feel that the trans movement has gone too far on many fronts, and if the government presents its case as calmly and as reasonably as Truss has thus far, this is a fight they can win.


And if it can be done in the United Kingdom, it can be done elsewhere. We should all be watching these developments very closely.


Jonathon’s new podcast, The Van Maren Show, is dedicated to telling the stories of the pro-life and pro-family movement. In his latest episode, Marvin Olasky, editor-in-chief of WORLD magazine and author of pro-life books, discusses the true history of the pro-life movement and what it can teach us about winning the culture war. Olasky points to the long history of abortion before Roe v. Wade to highlight the fact that fighting abortion on a strictly legal front will only get us so far since it is truly a cultural issue.

Britannia Rising! Ancient Flour Mill Opens to Help Feed the Nation

An ancient water mill in Dorset, England has opened up commercial flour production to help feed the nation during the Chinese coronavirus pandemic after decades of operating as a tourist destination.

The Sturminster Newton Mill, which survived through the black plague, is believed by the museum that operates it to date back to Saxon times, with evidence of a water mill existing at the location as early as 1016.
The mill was mentioned in the Doomsday Book of 1086 and continued to commercially produce flour until 1970 when it was converted into a tourist attraction. The mill continued to produce enough flour to serve tourists, however, when the national lockdown restrictions were introduced, the future of the mill was in question.

“We would have been milling, on the whole, about two days each month — that would have supplied us with enough flour to keep going throughout the whole of the season,” miller Pete Loosmore told the BBC.

“And then suddenly we had lockdown — and our first impression was that we couldn’t do anything with the mill because of social distancing,” he said.

But as reports came in of food shortages throughout the country, Mr Loosmore and his fellow miller Imogen Bittner decided to unleash the power of the old mill to help feed their fellow Britons.

Mr Loosmore, whose grandfather ran the mill for fifty years, said it would typically go through about a tonne of grain during a tourist season, but that production has shot up due to demand for grain from local shops facing shortages.
“This year we have got through the whole of that tonne in two to three weeks and we’re still chasing more and more grain,” he said.
“It’s been nice to bring the place truly back to life and back into something like it used to be when it was working six days a week,” he added.

UK: 550 illegal migrants arrive in the country via the English Channel during coronavirus lockdown
APR 26, 2020 8:00 AM BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS17 COMMENTS
“Some 550 illegal boat migrants have reached British shores from France during the period in which the two countries introduced national lockdown measures to stem the spread of the Chinese coronavirus.”

Most of these illegals are coming across the English Channel from France. In January, it was found that most of those who were illegally crossing the Channel were Iranians. Before the coronavirus pandemic, only about 15% of them were being sent back, which indicates yet again the surrender of Britain to the hijra, at the expense of British citizens.
During the coronavirus pandemic, illegal migrants pose an additional health threat to the population, beyond security issues:

In camps in Calais and Dunkirk which house an estimated 1,500 migrants, at least 9 migrants have been confirmed to have been infected with the coronavirus. Despite the fear of an outbreak in the camps, the British government is not testing every illegal migrant for the illness.

And demonstrating once again how incompetent the UK is with respect to immigration:

Migrants are… brought ashore and given the opportunity to apply for asylum — despite the fact that France is a safe, first world country — in line with European Union regulations which Britain is still bound by.

Unless the UK closes these loopholes, it is destined to continue along the path of Islamization.



“‘Someone Has to Have Brought It Over’ — 550 Migrants Land In UK During Lockdown,” by Kurt Zindulka, Breitbart, April 19, 2020:

Some 550 illegal boat migrants have reached British shores from France during the period in which the two countries introduced national lockdown measures to stem the spread of the Chinese coronavirus.

Data released from the Home Office revealed that at least 481 migrants illegally crossed the English Channel since the start of the British lockdown and an additional 69 people were brought ashore the week prior, despite France having already announced lockdown restrictions.

In camps in Calais and Dunkirk which house an estimated 1,500 migrants, at least 9 migrants have been confirmed to have been infected with the coronavirus. Despite the fear of an outbreak in the camps, the British government is not testing every illegal migrant for the illness.

The former general-secretary of the Immigration Services Union (ISU), Lucy Moreton, told The Times that: “On a purely statistical basis, someone has to have brought it over”.

Moreton said that migrants were not being tested when they are brought ashore or when they are moved to local council areas, where they are rehoused while they are processed. The Home Office claims that any migrants displaying symptoms of the virus are tested, but Moreton warned that it was difficult to spot signs of the illness after the arduous journey over the Channel.

“When a Border Force vessel picks these people up, there’s no way of assessing symptoms. They are cold, wet and often seasick,” she said.

The Home Office figures do not count migrants that were caught on the French side of the channel and only represent those migrants that were actually detected illegally entering the country by the UK Border Force.

Attempting to enter the United Kingdom illegally by boat or other means does not mean that a migrant will automatically be deported. Migrants are instead brought ashore and given the opportunity to apply for asylum — despite the fact that France is a safe, first world country — in line with European Union regulations which Britain is still bound by.

In 2019, just fifteen per cent of all illegal boat migrants were deported.

People-smugglers in France have been charging £13,000 per person for crossing the Channel, up from £7,000 since autumn. In October, Breitbart London reported that the police in France were accused of assisting people-smugglers traffick migrants into Britain, notifying the criminals as to the best times to make illegal crossings.

Home Secretary Priti Patel has claimed that she is “determined” to halt the flow of illegal boat migrants over the English Channel.

“Criminal gangs are using false promises to take advantage of desperate situations and illegally smuggle people into the UK,” she said per the BBC.

“We are continuing to support the French to deploy extra patrols on French beaches, drones, specialist vehicles and detection equipment to stop these boats leaving European shores,” Patel added…..

UK Health Secretary thanks Muslims for “sacrifice” on St. George’s Day, makes no mention of the English national day
APR 26, 2020 9:00 AM BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS19 COMMENTS
“Health Secretary Matt Hancock thanked Muslims for their Ramadan ‘sacrifice’ on St George’s Day, but made no mention of the English national day itself.”

Yet another politician sold out to political correctness and is indulging in shameless kowtowing to the Muslim community. Dhimmitude has become the only way to avoid being called an “Islamophobe.” Matt Hancock clearly knows this.

St. George’s Day is the feast of the patron saint of England (and also parts of Portugal and Spain). It is a day on which traditionally there are displays of patriotism and celebrations of the English heritage. In this context, one aspect of the story of St. George is most significant:

Stories depict him as a Roman soldier who slew a dragon while rescuing a Libyan king’s daughter. He was however tortured and ultimately killed in….. the most severe purge of Christians in the Roman Empire — when he refused to renounce his faith.



“UK Health Sec Thanks Muslims for Lockdown ‘Sacrifice’ on St George’s Day, Doesn’t Mention St George’s Day,” by Jack Montgomery, Breitbart, April 24, 2020:

Health Secretary Matt Hancock thanked Muslims for their Ramadan “sacrifice” on St George’s Day, but made no mention of the English national day itself.

Hancock, who as Secretary of State for the Department of Health and Social Care has arguably played the leading role for the British government in Boris Johnson’s absence — although the Prime Minister’s official substitute is Dominic Raab — neglected to mark St George’s Day in any way, or to offer a message to English citizens prevented from celebrating it properly by the lockdown regulations.

The beginning of the Islamic month of Ramadan, which fell on the same day, was another matter, however, with Hancock posting a video message thanking them effusively for their co-operation with the lockdown.

“This Ramadan, many Muslims who serve their country in the NHS [National Health Service] and in the Armed Forces and in so many other ways will not be sharing the joy of this month as they normally do,” he said.

“I want to say to all British Muslims, thank you for staying at home. I know how important the daily Iftar is, how important communal prayer is at night, and how important the Eid festival is.”

A St George’s cross flag — the flag of England, one of the four home nations that constitute the United Kingdom — did fly over Downing Street on Thursday, as has been customary every year at least since the last Labour government.

Commenters on social media who suggested Hancock had ignored Easter as well as St George’s Day were mistaken, however, as he did post a message wishing “everyone” a Happy Easter and thanking “everybody who is following the social distancing rules” at the time — although he appears to have made no specific reference to Christians, people being unable to attend church services, or any of the other important religious aspects of the holy day….

Prince Charles hailed Holocaust survivors and refugees as “living heroes”, praising them for the contributions they made to British society since the Holocaust.

The royal, a patron of Holocaust Memorial Day and World Jewish Relief, was among a host of public figures, faith leaders and politicians to pay their respects in video messages broadcast during this year’s ceremony, live-streamed on Monday and of which Jewish News was a media partner.

The Prince of Wales paid tribute to survivors and refugees, who went on to become “the leaders and builders of your community, active citizens and dedicated contributors to wider British society.”

“They have been and continue to be shining examples to the world of how it is possible to triumph over adversity. Whilst they may consider themselves the lucky ones, when so many did not survive, to us they are simply nothing short of living heroes, who were determined not just to survive but to thrive as they built new lives, new homes and new families here in the United Kingdom,” he said.

Over 60,000 people worldwide tuned in to watch the ceremony on YouTube and Facebook Live, which organisers say is expected to reach 200,000 in the coming days.

The annual day for Holocaust remembrance in the community coincided this year with the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Bergen Belsen by the British Army.

The ceremony featured videos of six Holocaust survivors and refugees lighting a yellow candle, each in memory of those who were murdered in the Shoah.

They were Kindertransport refugee Sir Eric Reich, Theresienstadt survivor Joanna Millan, child refugee Isca Wittenberg, Auschwitz and Lieberstadt slave labour camp survivor Mindu Hornick, Auschwitz survivor Sam Laskier and Eva Clarke, who was born in Mauthausen concentration camp.

Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis said the “world needs to heed the call of our Holocaust survivors to ensure that the Shoah will never in any shape or form happen again.”

Rabbi Mirvis discussed rising antisemitism in the past year but struck a positive note as he told the commemoration that “within the dark clouds of the coronavirus, we can see a silver lining… A sense of unity, unity in our communities, on our streets, in our towns, in our cities, national unity and global unity, as all of humankind faces covid-19 like one person with one heart.”


Among those who spoke at the ceremony, included Prince Charles, Sadiq Khan and Marie van der Zyl; President Reuven Rivlin, Rachel Riley and Luciana Berger, Mark Regev, Jonny Turgel and Robert Jenrick
Shoah educator Henry Grunwald, vice-president of Yom HaShoah UK, said Kaddish after a performance of El Malei Rachamim by Chazan Jonny Turgel, grandson to the late Gena Turgel, who met her husband upon liberation from Bergen-Belsen and became known as the “Bride of Belsen.”

“We don’t normally say Kaddish without a minyan, but the Kaddish which we say on Yom HaShoah is of enormous importance to survivors and to the families of survivors,” Grunwald told the livestream before reciting Kaddish.

Neil Martin, who chairs Yom HaShoah UK and produced the event, said: “Holocaust survivors and refugees are of course right now isolating in their homes for their safety, and may well have believed that this year the community won’t be able to remember on Yom HaShoah, in what might sadly be for so many of them the last of the significant anniversaries. It was vital therefore, that despite the obstacles we faced, and sadly the large number of coronavirus deaths hitting the Jewish community, that we still remembered… but virtually, and we were truly honoured that The Prince of Wales agreed to lead the tributes to the brave and inspiring survivors and refugees of our community. It may sound strange, but I’m proud we were able to use Yom HaShoah to bring some hope and togetherness to our community (and beyond) during this difficult time.”

Communities Secretary Robert Jenrick extended his “good wishes to the Jewish community on this solemn occasion” and warned it had “never been more important to fight against the world’s oldest form of hatred.”

Israeli president Reuven Rivlin said that “while the coronavirus may have prevented us from marching from Auschwitz Birkenau, nothing can prevent us from passing on the memory of the Shoah to the next generation”, in an apparent reference to the postponed March of the Living.

He added: “As we fight the spread of the coronavirus, we must never forget the survivors among us. Not only must we make sure that all the needs are met, but we must also continue to listen to their story if not, in person, then through technology, as we are doing just now.”

Labour leader Keir Starmer stressed the importance of remembrance and added: “In the Shoah we see the worst of humanity but we also see the best in the hope and resilience of those that survived and rebuilt their lives, allowing the Jewish culture to make a significant contribution, not just here in Britain and across the world.”

Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham recounted a conversation he had with Auschwitz survivor Ike Alterman, who shared his testimony “with more than a sprinkling of dry Mancunian wit”.

Alterman, Burnham said, told of “things that are the most horrific anyone can imagine and also the joy of arriving at Windermere at the end of the war, paradise of Windermere, as he described it, and the kindness of the British people who met him there.”

London Mayor Sadiq Khan told of his “great regret that we can’t all come together in person today” but urged viewers watching at home to “remember together the 6 million Jewish men, women and children who were killed in the Holocaust, alongside so many other innocent people.”

Remembrance, he added, “feels more important than ever before as we confront the depressing reality of hatred, antisemitism and nativist populism on the rise, once again around the world.”

Board of Deputies president Marie van der Zyl said: “As we gather, we not only remember the victims of the Shoah, we also pay tribute to the remarkable achievements of the survivors and refugees who fled the Nazis, many of whom will be watching from their homes today. We must unite as never before to ensure that these horrors can never be repeated.”
The commemoration also featured a virtual children’s choir recital, a speech from Israeli Ambassador Mark Regev, and readings by Countdown presenter Rachel Riley, Judge Robert Rinder and Game of Thrones actress Laura Pradelska.

Labour could face £8m legal bill over leaked antisemitism probe, report claims
MP Margaret Hodge said: 'It's a crying shame that our new leader has been left with such a big financial mess to fix, particularly on top of everything else we face'

The Labour Party could face an £8 million legal bill over multiple lawsuits arising from a leaked internal probe of antisemitism, a report claims.

The Mail on Sunday reported on speculation from “sources close to those identified by the leak”, compensation and legal costs could be “enormous” and range from £3 million to £8m. An unnamed MP told the newspaper the bill could “just bankrupt the party”.


The 860-page report found “no evidence” of antisemitism complaints being handled differently from other forms of complaint, or of current or former staff being “motivated by antisemitic intent”.

But it found that “factional opposition” in the upper echelons of the party towards former labour leader Jeremy Corbyn contributed to “a litany of mistakes” which hindered the effective handling of the issue.

Media lawyer Mark Lewis, of the firm Patron Law, said last week he was instructed to pursue libel claims and claims of data protection breaches against those publishing allegations contained in the report.

An internal inquiry has been launched into the leak and the Information Commissioner’s Office informed.

In a statement to Jewish News on Monday, Labour MP Margaret Hodge said: “It’s a crying shame that our new leader has been left with such a big financial mess to fix, particularly on top of everything else we face as a country and a party.

“I am sure Keir and the new leadership team will work to clean up Labour’s finances as part of the wider mission to get our house back in order.”
Meanwhile, Labour’s general secretary warned constituency parties sharing the report on social media or elsewhere “on an unauthorised basis will be immediately exposing themselves to potential significant civil and criminal liability.”

A Labour spokesperson told the Press Association last week the party “takes its responsibilities for data protection and the security and integrity of its data and systems extremely seriously.”
The Labour Party was approached for comment.

In wake of the virus outbreak, plans to hold a ceremony attended by up to 10,000 people were put on hold. More than 100 charities came together instead, agreeing to broadcast a virtual commemoration.

In addition to a pre-recorded message by the Prince of Wales, there will also be a virtual children’s choir recital, as well as readings by Countdown presenter Rachel Riley, Judge Robert Rinder and Game of Thrones actress Laura Pradelska.
Other speakers this evening include the Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis, Israeli Ambassador Mark Regev,  Communities Secretary Robert Jenrick, Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer, and Mayor of London Sadiq Khan.
Neil Martin, who chairs Yom HaShoah UK, said: “Holocaust survivors and refugees are of course right now isolating in their homes for their safety, and may well have believed that this year the community won’t be able to remember on Yom HaShoah, in what might sadly be for so many of them the last of the significant anniversaries. It was vital, despite the obstacles we face, and sadly the large number of coronavirus deaths hitting the Jewish community, that we do remember… but ‘virtually’, and we are truly honoured that The Prince of Wales has agreed to lead the tributes to the brave and inspiring survivors and refugees of our community.”
Earlier this year, Prince Charles embarked on a landmark visit to Israel, during which he attended the Fifth World Holocaust Forum at the Yad Vashem.

A police officer in Lancashire, England was recorded threatening a British citizen with arrest on made-up charges during a coronavirus confrontation that has gone viral on social media.

Lancashire Police said that they are investigating an incident in which an officer told a member of the public that he would “make something up” in order to arrest the man. It is unclear what the reason was for the altercation, in which the member of the public accuses the officer of “harassing” him.

“If you want to fucking step to me and push your chest out and something like that then fine, I’ll lock you up. We’ll do that shall we?,” the officer told the man, Lancashire Live reports.

The unnamed man protested his innocence, claiming that he had done “nothing wrong” — to which the officer replied: “I’ll make something up. Public order. Squaring up to a police officer. Shall I do that?”
“Who are they going to believe me or you? Who are they going to believe me or you?” the officer warned.
In a statement released on social media, the police force said that it is clear from the video that the man “deserves an apology”.
“The matter is being investigated and has been referred to our professional standards department. It is clear from the footage the member of the public deserves an apology which we will attempt to provide him with today,” the force said.

Police forces in the United Kingdom have been widely criticised for their overzealous and heavy-handed approach to enforcing the nationwide coronavirus lockdown.

Last month, for example, Derbyshire Police was widely panned after posting a video of police drone footage of socially-distanced walkers in the Peak District alongside claims their exercise was “not essential”. The same police force dyed the ‘Blue Lagoon’ in Buxton black in order to deter the public from visiting the park.

The Police Federation of England and Wales has demanded that the government grant officers with the power to enter private residences without a warrant if they suspect a forbidden party to be occurring.
The police have been doubly criticised for their stringent enforcement of the coronavirus regulations against walkers and small groups of people from the same household sitting down far from others at the beach or in public parks since Thursday, after a huge number of officers and others, led by Metropolitan Police chief Cressida Dick, crowded onto Westminster Bridge in London to mass-clap carers with no requirement to wear masks and no regard for social distancing rules.

https://gellerreport.com/2020/04/allahu-akbar-bbc-broadcasts-islamic-call-to-prayer-for-the-first-time.html/?fbclid=IwAR1LLvrGrePnI2envk9FUVR1KmsirtDS9TFHHvx_C1hAYBoJa-efP6L68A4
“Allahu Akbar”! BBC Broadcasts Islamic Call to Prayer for the First Time
By Robert Spencer - on April 13, 2020
UK
Global Village Space reported Wednesday that “in a first, BBC begins the broadcast of Muslim prayers on its network as mosques shut down across Britain, part of the extensive measures against coronavirus.” In today’s Britain, it is extraordinarily unlikely that the BBC will stop broadcasting the adhan, the Islamic call to prayer, once the coronavirus pandemic is over. A cultural line has been crossed. And the implications of this, beyond the expected hosannas from the usual proponents of globalism and multiculturalism, are ominous.

According to Global Village Space, “different imams lead the 5:50 am broadcasts every week on Friday from 14 local radio stations of BBC. The imam recites verses from the Holy Quran and quotes of Holy Prophet before delivering the sermon and leading the listeners in prayers. The program is titled, ‘Islamic Reflections’. The arrangements have been made to facilitate the Muslim community to the run-up to the month of Ramadan till the end of April.”

The BBC is no doubt thrilled to do this, as it demonstrates how “inclusive” the mega- network is, and how welcoming British society is. Chris Burns, the head of BBC Local Radio, was dead chuffed, saying: “Local radio is all about connecting communities, and we hope these weekly reflections will go some way to helping Muslims feel a sense of community while they are isolating.”


BBC CWR presenter Phil Upton added: “Ramadan is just a few weeks away and I appreciate that for many that’s a big void to fill with as many as one and a half hours of your day, especially in the evening, in Ramadan month, spent in your local mosque. With many local mosques being closed because of the coronavirus outbreak there’s an overwhelming sadness with the loss of your spiritual connection that can be gained from congregational prayers, so we are trying to fill the void in some small way with Islamic reflections.”

Well, that’s wonderful, but when the BBC broadcasts the Islamic call to prayer, what exactly is it broadcasting? The adhan, prayed in Arabic, goes like this:

Allah is greater (Allahu akbar); intoned four times.
I testify that there is no God but Allah (Ashhadu anna la ila ill Allah); intoned twice.
I testify that Mohammed is Allah’s Prophet (Ashhadu anna Muhammadan rasul Allah); intoned twice.
Come to prayer (Hayya alas salah); intoned twice.
Come to security/salvation (Hayya alal falah); intoned twice.
Allah is greater (Allahu akbar); intoned twice.
There is no God but Allah (La ilah ill Allah); intoned once.

Dr. Gavin Ashenden, former Chaplain to the British Queen, who resigned his position in protest against a Qur’an reading in a Scottish church, observed that “the Muslim call to prayer is a dramatic piece of Islamic triumphalism. It proclaims Islam’s superiority over all other religions, and in so doing casts Jesus in the role of a charlatan and a liar. The Muslim god, Allah, is unknowable and has no son. Jesus was, therefore, a fraud in claiming He and the Father are one.”

Is the BBC, the government-funded broadcasting agency of an ostensibly Christian land, really wise to broadcast a declaration of the superiority of another faith, one that directs its adherents to make war against Christians and subjugate them as inferiors under the hegemony of believers (cf. Qur’an 9:29)?

Is the BBC wise to broadcast the cry “Allahu akbar,” beloved of jihad terrorists the world over? Chief 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta wrote this in his letter to himself before carrying out his jihad mission: “When the confrontation begins, strike like champions who do not want to go back to this world. Shout, ‘Allahu Akbar,’ because this strikes fear in the hearts of the non-believers.” This is why the Fort Hood jihad killer, Nidal Malik Hasan, shouted it as he shot thirteen Americans in November 2009, and why so many other jihadis have used it essentially as an announcement that non-Muslims are about to die.

But in Britain today, any such concerns will be dismissed out of hand as “Islamophobic.” BBC officials, and the British government, are no doubt certain that Muslim communities in the country will be grateful that the BBC is broadcasting Islamic prayers, and will redouble their efforts to become loyal, productive British citizens, marching together with non-Muslims in Britain into the glorious multicultural future. That’s the way it will work out. Isn’t it? No Muslims will take seriously the adhan’s declarations of Islamic superiority and heed the Qur’an’s calls to wage war against unbelievers. Will they? In multiculti Britain today, such an idea is inconceivable!

209 UK Jews have died due to coronavirus
Board of Deputies president says impact of the virus on the community is 'heartbreaking and devastating' as latest figures are released.

The number of coronavirus-related fatalities has risen to 209 among UK Jews, up 57 from the last announcement on 7 April.

The figure, released on Monday, covers fatalities both in hospital and beyond, using data gathered from six of the largest Orthodox and denominational burial boards, according to data collated by the Board of Deputies.


They are the Adath Yisroel Burial Society, the Federation of Synagogues Burial Society, the Joint Jewish Burial Board, Liberal Judaism, the Spanish and Portuguese Sephardi Community and the United Synagogue Burial Society.

The Board of Deputies monitors the number of funerals carried out by burial societies, where covid-19 appeared on the deceased’s death certificate.

Board of Deputies President Marie van der Zyl said: “The effect of coronavirus on the Jewish community is heartbreaking and devastating. We wish the families who have lost loved ones a long life, and pray that their memory should be for a blessing.”
The national death toll rose above 10,000 as of Sunday, according to the government, with a review of lockdown measures due to take place later this week after the hospital coronavirus death toll rose above 10,000.


Shttps://jewishnews.timesofisrael.com/starmer-pledges-to-set-new-standard-on-antisemitism-in-call-with-jewish-groups/tarmer pledges ‘new standards’ on antisemitism in call with Jewish groups
'This has certainly been a good start,' read a joint statement from the Board of Deputies, Jewish Leadership Council, Community Security Trust and Jewish Labour Movement
Labour’s new leader Keir Starmer has pledged on Wednesday to set “new standards” on the party’s handling of  antisemitism in a video call with Jewish groups.

Starmer, who was joined by Labour’s new deputy leader Angela Rayner, spoke to representatives from the Board of Deputies, Jewish Leadership Council, Community Security Trust and Jewish Labour Movement.

During the call, the former shadow Brexit secretary vowed to start work on setting up an independent disciplinary process, cooperate with the Equality and Human Rights Commission’s investigation into allegations of antisemitism in the party, and order a report on all outstanding disciplinary cases this week.

Starmer discussed with representatives from the Jewish Labour Movement his “ambition to roll out training of all Labour Party staff in as soon as practically possible.”

“Today, I repeated once again the apology I made as soon as I was elected leader,” he said on Wednesday.

“Over the last few years, we have failed the Jewish community on antisemitism. Labour is a proudly anti-racist party and, going forward, it will not be enough to ‘pass the test’ on antisemitism. We need to set new standards for best practice,” he added.
The Board of Deputies president Marie van der Zyl, Jewish Leadership Council chair Jonathan Goldstein, Community Security Trust chair Gerald Ronson and Jewish Labour Movement Chair Mike Katz issued a joint statement after the call.
“While we would have fully understood the need to focus entirely on coronavirus at this time, Keir Starmer has already achieved in four days more than his predecessor in four years in addressing antisemitism within the Labour Party,” they said.
They added: “As we discussed with Keir [Starmer] and Angela [Rayner], we want to have a normal relationship with Labour whereby we can discuss the full range of issues affecting our community, from religious freedom to Israel, from Jewish schools to poverty, from refugees to the environment and not just antisemitism.
“This has certainly been a good start. If the new Labour leadership continues in this way, we can work together to make the changes that will make Labour a proudly anti-racist party once again.”

Of course Jews around the world will be sitting down for Seder night in our own homes, away from loved ones and worrying about what the future will hold for their families and humanity at large. It feels odd to be thinking about anything else at this time but for some Jews around the UK, those who support, or have supported, the Labour Party, this night will be very different; there might be a positive conversation about the Labour Party at the Jewish dinner table.

The pain and despair of the last four and a half years felt by almost all Labour Jews has only been exacerbated by trying to explain to family, friends and those at any Jewish event that Labour isn’t irredeemable and that the institutional antisemitism in a party built on equality and social justice is a stain, but one that can be overcome.


This felt more and more difficult to say as the Labour Party became a less safe and more unwelcoming place for Jewish members and as the antisemites, Jew-baiters and the denialists that surrounded them gained more power inside the Party. Jews and their allies had to make the tough decision of whether to stay in the Party and fight for its soul, or leave an institutionally antisemitic organisation. Both were valid and honourable choices and painstaking in equal measure.

Last weekend felt different. A tiny amount of light and a small opening that things may just be getting better. Despite many Labour Jews including myself backing Lisa Nandy for leader, there were celebratory scenes over Zoom when the moment finally came for the end of Jeremy Corbyn and the ascent of Keir Starmer to the leadership.

But like the Pesach story, redemption doesn’t come easily. One of the messages of Pesach is the physical, mental and spiritual redemption of the Jewish people from their horrific time in Egypt, to receiving the Torah on Mount Sinai and eventually entering the Land of Israel. From the moment of freedom from Egypt, the Jewish people weren’t just handed the Torah or transported to the Land of Israel. There were many trials, tribulations and hardships along the way. 

Same too with the Labour Party. Keir Starmer has not ended Labour antisemitism or more generally antisemitism and conspiratorial politics on the left, nor is the Labour Party now ready for its ascent to their own Jerusalem, a Labour Government. There will be lots of hard work, tests and difficulties on the way. There will be some who will ask, just as the Jewish people did, “Is all this hard work worth it? Maybe we should turn back and let the antisemites win?” However, I am confident that with hard work and tough decision-making on both sides, there is a chance for a bright future ahead for Labour Jews in the UK, where the Jewish Labour Movement can continue to shine brightly in the community, in activism, in policy discussions and in making our country a better and more equal place.

Chag Pesach Sameach and stay safe, stay home, save lives, save the world!

The death of Israel Apartheid Week on UK campuses

Illustrative: A poster put up without permission in a London underground train on February 22, 2016, to mark the Boycott, Divest, Sanctions (BDS) movement's 12th anti-Israel Apartheid Week.
This week, thousands of Jewish students are walking onto their university campuses to be greeted by… nothing. Well, nothing out of the ordinary, that is. Academics are teaching; students are studying. There are sports games, library visits, lunch breaks, submission deadlines, placements, supervisions, J-Soc socials… But that’s all.

Why is this noteworthy? Surely a regular week at university does not warrant a 500-word article. But this week is not like all other weeks.
It’s Israel Apartheid Week.
Since the campaign began in 2005, events have taken place on more than 20 campuses in the UK. In previous years these have been coordinated efforts designed to intimidate Jewish students and cause a commotion: for example, in 2012 a mock checkpoint and an ‘Israeli Apartheid Wall’ were erected at the London School of Economics, leading to physical confrontation.

In stark contrast, this year a scattered handful of speakers will address fewer than 10 universities across the country.

Clearly, Israel Apartheid Week is weakening.

It’s losing the momentum it gained a few years ago; it’s being dragged by tired, worn-out campaigners who can’t admit defeat.

The decline of Israel Apartheid Week mirrors a drop in the presence of the Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions movement on our campuses.

There is a historical association between BDS and anti-apartheid campaigning: boycotts were used effectively to end apartheid in South Africa over two decades ago. But the comparison doesn’t stack up; so neither does the tactic.

On campus, pro-BDS campaigns are a haven for those seeking to label Israel an ‘apartheid state.’ Whilst Israel Apartheid Week tactics intimidate Jewish students and others, cause nuisance and generally disturb university life, BDS is debated in students’ unions. The legitimacy of these respected forums can lend an (undeserved) air of respectability to what is actually an insidious, intimidating and alienating campaign.

And yet the BDS movement on campuses is slowly petering out too.

In the wake of Operation Protective Edge, 2014 saw a spike in the number of BDS policies proposed to students’ unions but with such policy typically being active for three years, many are now lapsing, and the lapses are largely going unchallenged.

In 2015, we witnessed Cokegate: eight of NUS’s 10 vice presidents and liberation officers boycotted their own awards ceremony due to sponsorship of the event from Coca Cola, which they perceived as a breach of NUS’ BDS policy, because of the brand’s factory in Bnei Brak.

In comparison, last year saw just seven pro-BDS motions to students’ unions — five of which were defeated, withdrawn or otherwise not passed — and six NUS officers visited Israel and Palestine on UJS-organised trips.

To be clear, BDS has not disappeared altogether. Jewish students fought at City University, London and UEA recently. They faced awful intimidation and abuse for doing so (a disturbing, but distinct topic); but these are the only two motions we have faced this academic year. This is a drastic drop from the seven we fought last year.

There are still battles to be fought — and we will continue to fight them. A handful of Israel Apartheid Week events is still too many, and Jewish students must be able to challenge BDS motions free from intimidation and abuse; so we still have a long way to go.

Year in, year out, anti-Israel campaigners graduate from university and new generations enroll. Those who have left in the last few years are taking the tactics of Israel Apartheid Week and BDS with them — good riddance — but we will not allow ourselves to become complacent. Whatever tactics new generations of anti-Israel activists might bring, Jewish students, with unwavering support from UJS, will be ready to challenge them.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has left hospital after being treated for coronavirus, but will not immediately return to work, Downing Street says.
Mr Johnson, 55, was taken to St Thomas' hospital, in London, on Sunday - 10 days after testing positive for the virus.
He had three nights in intensive care before returning to a ward on Thursday.
Downing Street said the PM would continue his recovery at his country residence, Chequers.
"On the advice of his medical team, the PM will not be immediately returning to work. He wishes to thank everybody at St Thomas' for the brilliant care he has received.
"All of his thoughts are with those affected by this illness."

Coronavirus: Boris Johnson is 'not on a ventilator' after spending night in intensive care
The PM's condition "emphasises the importance" of Britons following the rules of the coronavirus lockdown, says Michael Gove.

Why you can trust Sky News 
The prime minister is "receiving the best care" after spending the night in ICU, Michael Gove has told Sky News.
The Cabinet Office minister said Boris Johnson "has not been on a ventilator" but has received "oxygen support" - in a separate interview earlier with LBC.


Mr Johnson spent the night in intensive care after his symptoms of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, worsened and he suffered breathing difficulties.


Police stand guard outside St Thomas' Hospital in London, where Boris Johnson is being treated


PM in intensive care after symptoms worsen
The PM was initially admitted to St Thomas' Hospital in London on Sunday evening, but his health deteriorated during the course of Monday.


The decision to move him to intensive care was taken on the advice of his medical team at around 7pm, with Downing Street revealing the news in a statement an hour later.


It is understood he remained conscious at the time of the announcement and was moved to intensive care as a precaution should he require ventilation to aid his recovery.


Mr Gove said Mr Johnson was being kept "under close supervision" and added: "By being in intensive care if there is further support he needs it is there at hand.

"But the prime minister has not been on a ventilator."


He told Sky News that Mr Johnson has given his ministers "clear instructions about what he wants us to do" in his absence.


MICHAEL GOVE
Gove: PM 'receiving the best possible care'
Downing Street will be issuing updates "throughout the day", Mr Gove added.


And he said the fact that the PM is in intensive care "emphasises the importance" of Britons following the rules of the coronavirus lockdown.


Mr Gove said that while "nobody likes the lockdown", "the fact the PM and others are in a serious condition as a result of this disease emphasises the importance of making sure we all do everything we can".


Foreign secretary Dominic Raab, now 'deputy prime minister' speaks after Boris Johnson was taken into intensive care.


Raab says virus response remains on course
Since Sky News spoke to Mr Gove, it was revealed he himself is now self-isolating as a member of his family has displayed symptoms of coronavirus.


He is not currently displaying any symptoms.


Mr Gove told Sky News that the government will review the lockdown - and whether to relax or rescind its restrictions - at a cabinet meeting next week.


How the PM's condition has worsened over the past 11 days
Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, who has been asked to deputise for Mr Johnson where necessary, will chair that meeting, Mr Gove added.


"We'll review the evidence that's in front of us and take an appropriate decision."


Mr Raab chaired the government's coronavirus "war cabinet" that meets daily at 9.15am. This week's regular Tuesday meeting of the full cabinet has been cancelled.


Sir Keir Starmer says we all need to follow the government's advice to beat coronavirus


Starmer: Labour will 'act constructively with the government'
New Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has spoken with Mr Raab and offered to work "constructively" with the government amid the COVID-19 pandemic.


"People are clearly anxious. I know the business of government will continue," he said.


"I was in touch with the foreign secretary last night, and I want to say that the Labour Party will act in the national interest.


"That's why I have offered to act constructively with the government and support them where that's the right thing to do, and push them further where we need to do it."


The US president added that Americans are "praying" for the UK prime minister. 


'America is praying for Boris Johnson'
Politicians from all sides have sent Mr Johnson get-well messages, while leaders from around the world have also wished the PM well.


US President Donald Trump said: "Americans are all praying for his recovery.


"He's been a really good friend and something very special: strong, resolute, doesn't quit, doesn't give up."

London’s Metropolitan Police Force is appealing to the public to report “hate crime related to the Covid-19 pandemic”.
“A hate crime is when someone commits a crime against you because of your disability, gender, identity, race, or sexual orientation, religion, or any other actual or perceived difference,” intoned an officer identified as “Constable Paul” in the video message the Met shared to social media.
“It doesn’t just mean physical violence,” he assured potential hate reporters. “Someone using offensive language towards you, or harassing you because of who you are, or who they think you are, is also a crime,” he suggested.

Keen to remind viewers that London’s police officers are not only concerned with offensive behaviour face to face, Constable Paul went on to note “someone posting abusive ot offensive messages about you online” as another example of a hate crime.
He appeared to be at pains to maximise his police force’s “hate crime” workload, telling viewers: “You might want to shrug it off if it happens to you, but if you tell us then we can investigate and stop it from getting worse, for you or someone else. Even if you’re not sure if it’s a crime or not, you should report it so we can investigate.”
The police force’s efforts to solicit hate crime reports at this time may seem curious to some, given predictions that the country’s lockdown measures could in time lead to unrest among some elements of the populace, and that the coronavirus could slash the force’s manpower by as much as a quarter due to sickness and self-isolation requirements.
Police in Bristol got a small taste of these potential issues within hours of Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s initial announcement of lockdown measures, with “youths” who were told to disperse by officers reacting by throwing missiles at them and torching two food delivery vans.

A British Muslim Visits Israel For The First Time: His Shocking Reaction Will SHOCK You
By Phil Schneider - March 26, 2020 4788 0
Why would a Muslim from England decide that Israel ought to be supported and not bashed? It is not due to his Muslim religion, but due to his Western value system. Many Muslims from outside the Middle East live in Westernized countries. There, they are inculcated with many Western liberal values. Once they adopt those value systems, they have taken the first step towards taking on a positive view towards Israel.

It is hard to have a negative opinion about the State of Israel if someone is a genuine liberal. Allan Dershowitz’s book is one of the best on the topic – from the vantage point of a liberal. However, in today’s day and age, liberalism has been replaced by so many young people with narrow or close-minded progressivism. The progressive minds are not focused on facts as much as feelings. So, do facts even matter to them? Very little.

So, a two-pronged approach needs to be taken with young progressive-oriented people. First off, we need to work on convincing them just how wrong it is to ignore facts at the expense of hurt feelings. But, even with those who place feelings at the top of the decision-making pyramid, we need to focus on the “feelings” side of the Israeli-Arab issue. What about the feelings of Israeli children attacked by Arab terrorists through terror tunnels? Moreover, should the cement for the tunnels be funded by US and European taxpayers? We need to use facts, feelings, and anti-progressive arguments in order to combat anti-Israel sentiment.

Hundreds of UK mosques remain open for Jumu’ah despite closure calls
By 5Pillars -5 days ago
Masjid Umar in Leicester remains open
Hundreds of mosques around the UK remained open today for Jumu’ah prayers despite calls for them to shut due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Scores of mosques in Leicester, Lancashire, London, Birmingham, Luton and other parts of the country chose not to shut their doors and introduced restrictions instead, such as urging anyone who has coronavirus symptoms (constant cough or temperature) not come to the mosque at all.
One mosque in Manchester, Jameah Masjid E Noor, even announced a special Jama’ah for the over 50s.
Anti-closure scholars have justified their decision by emphasising the importance of Friday prayers in Islam, the lack of a government ban on mass gatherings, and the fact that general wider society has not shut down.
Earlier today Sheikh Haitham al-Haddad, of the Islamic Council of Europe, reiterated that he categorically disagrees with the full closure of mosques on the grounds that “no one has the right whatsoever to control the Houses of Allah.”
In a fatwa he urged Muslims to try to perform Jumu’ah as much as they can, but if they cannot find a congregation to join then they should try to establish Jumu’ah wherever they can in homes or even in parks. And if they can’t then they must pray Dhuhr instead.
“It could be argued from a worldly perspective that gathering in the mosque for Jum’uah or daily prayers will add to the spread of the virus. While we take all proven precautions, we must remember Allāh is the one who causes means to reach their ends. We remember His ability over all things and His subjugating of the creation to us when we obey His commands and establish His glorification on the earth,” the fatwa said.
Most mosques shut doors 
However, over half the mosques around the country, if not more, closed due to the coronavirus outbreak. These included most of the biggest mosques in the country in major population centres.

Lancashire Council of Mosques also reversed its position last evening and is now calling for daily congregational and Friday prayers to be suspended to stop the spread of coronavirus.
Despite considerable opposition to their stance in a meeting last night they encouraged worshippers to pray at home. Worshippers were also told not to shake hands after prayers and to stop the use of the wudhu area.
A Council statement read: “We recognise how important Friday prayers are to the community, particularly at this difficult time for us all. However, our shared priority must be to keep people safe and give them the best possible advice on how to do this…
“Earlier this week, the Government issued advice on social distancing. This advice urges everyone to avoid large gatherings and also gatherings in smaller public places. It also recommends avoiding gatherings with friends and family. This advice is needed to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and also to make sure our hospitals have the capacity they need to cope with the pandemic.
“It is with a very heavy heart that we strongly recommend, from a Public Health perspective, at this stage of the pandemic outbreak, that both daily and Friday congregational prayers and other significant gatherings such as madrassah, courses or lectures are suspended until further notice.”
However, it is not certain if individual mosques in Lancashire will abide by the Council’s advice or not.

Melanie Phillips Explains Why She Left the Left
melanie-phillips-on-truth
An incredible commentator explains clearly her path from left to right. Melanie Phillips explains all in this interview, uncovering the reasons behind her move.
Once she was a commentator who clearly was on the left side of the map. She was honest, critical, and very well-spoken. Now, she is perhaps known as the most eloquent and clear-headed thinker on the right in Great Britain. She takes bold stances on Brexit, PC culture, the State of Israel, and other hot-button issues. She never strays from the facts and stays above the fray through her intellect.

Nearly any clear-minded liberal from the 60’s and 70’s realizes today that the left has been hijacked by progressives. As opposed to standing up for people’s rights for freedoms, the left is filled with endless attempts to quash freedoms – especially freedom of speech.

For Melanie Phillips, this was too much to bear. The facts brought her to clear conclusions. She actually has not changed all that much. The world has changed around her, and much of the left has gone off the deep end. That is why she will – at times – be critical of things she sees on the right side of the map too. But, all in all, her litmus test on any issue is the facts. Wherever the facts lead her – that is where she ends up. She is a breath of fresh air in a world of PC non-fact oriented culture.

Religious burials to be protected as MPs pass amended coronavirus bill
'We have worked closely with faith groups, MPs and local authorities to reassure them that we are fully committed to respecting religious practices,' a government spokesperson said

Religious burials will be protected after MPs passed an amended version of the government’s emergency coronavirus bill.

The 329-page coronavirus bill, which cleared the House of Commons on Monday, is set to go through the upper chamber on Tuesday and Wednesday.


The bill, subject to a six-month review, gives powers to local authorities to dispose of bodies and allows funeral directors to register deaths.

But it also states that local and national authorities must have regard for “the person’s wishes  … religion or beliefs, if known.”

The government tabled an amendment after calls from MPs and faith leaders, including the Board of Deputies and the MP Naz Shah, who raised concerns about respecting religious practices.

A government spokesperson said: “We have worked closely with faith groups, MPs and local authorities to reassure them that we are fully committed to respecting religious practices.

“We recognise the huge importance of this and will do everything we can to maintain the right for a person or their loved one to have their preferences respected and the wishes of the bereaved upheld.

“These emergency measures are only intended to be an absolute last resort.”

One hundred MPs backed an amendment proposed by Shah to ensure local authorities respect the deceased’s religious beliefs.

The shadow women and equalities minister told Jewish News on Tuesday: “Both Muslim and Jewish communities were rightly anxious and very worried about the possibility of cremation in the original coronavirus bill as it is completely against their faiths.

“I am grateful that government listened to those concerns and made changes to the bill and therefore, I withdrew my amendment. The government has now provided the much needed legal protection.”

She added: “The manner in which Muslim communities and organisations collaborated and worked collectively with Jewish communities and organisations has truly lifted my spirits but also highlights how we, as communities, can collectively work together and stand together with one another at such times.”

The Board of Deputies president Marie van der Zyl said on Sunday defaulting to cremation could “add to the sorrow of grieving families and go against fundamental freedoms of religion and belief.”

She hailed the amended bill in a statement on Monday as “an inspiring example of interfaith solidarity and responsive government.”

“It shows, even in these difficult times for our nation, why we have so much reason to be proud of this wonderful country,” she said, thanking ministers “for acting speedily to address the concerns raised by Jewish and Muslim communities.”

She also thanked Shah and the Ilford North MP Wes Streeting “for their close communication with us throughout the bill process.”

Senior Reform rabbi Laura Janner-Klausner welcomed the amendment. “I’m pleased that the government have listened to Naz Shah and accepted her amendment,” she said. “This will allow Jewish and Muslim communities to rest assured that no loved ones will be cremated without consultation with families.”

The United Kingdom may shut down parliament to prevent MPs from spreading the coronavirus, as the country saw its largest ever daily increase of cases of the deadly virus.
In an attempt to contain an outbreak of the coronavirus, the UK is considering limiting large public events, closing schools and now the government is reportedly drafting plans to shut down the House of Commons and Lords until September in “the longest summer recess we have known” according to a parliamentary insider.
“We’ve got 650 people who spend half the week spread across the country meeting their constituents and the other half rubbing up against one another in Westminster. It’s 650 superspreaders,” the insider told The Times.
The total number of those infected in the UK reached 87 on Wednesday, with 36 six new cases being confirmed, the largest daily increase since the start of the epidemic. In England, 32 new cases were confirmed and two cases were reported in both Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Almost all of the new cases were found in people who have either travelled to an infected area or came into contact with someone who did. However, the origin of three of the new cases is currently unexplained, suggesting that transmission may have already begun in the country.

Professor Chris Whitty, England’s chief medical officer said that the likelihood of a serious outbreak in the UK is “almost certain” and that he expects “some deaths”.
“If we get established transmission in the UK, which I think at this time is more likely than not, then there will be a number of weeks – about six weeks – until we start to see a significant amount of transmission in the UK,” he told Sky News.
“The key thing is we will need to do a variety of interventions, but we do not want to do them too early because we’ll then need to sustain them through the epidemic. So what we’re trying to do is plan to do them at exactly the right point to minimise social disruption but still manage to reduce the impact of this epidemic,” Whitty added.
Whitty said that with the virus spreading quickly throughout Europe, it is unlikely that the UK will “escape” a major outbreak of the coronavirus, that could last for several months.
“With all epidemics, what happens is they start off very slowly and then they gradually gather momentum and then they suddenly go up relatively fast,” he warned.

British citizens could be told to work from home for at least 3 months to stop the spread of coronavirus
(BI) – British workers could be told to stay at home for up to three months as the country prepares for a major coronavirus outbreak within weeks. Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Tuesday set out his government’s action plan for combating the spread of the deadly virus across the country.

There were 51 confirmed coronavirus cases in the UK as of Tuesday lunchtime. Johnson’s government remains focused on containing the disease, which has reached almost every country in Western Europe and claimed the lives of more than 3,000 people worldwide.

SADIQ KHAN REVEALS HOW HE COULD LOSE LONDON MAYOR ELECTION
Posted by James Cooper | Feb 25, 2020 | Breaking, Labour LOLs, News
Sadiq Khan Reveals How He Could Lose London Mayor Election
SADIQ KHAN HAS WARNED LABOUR PARTY SUPPORTERS AND MEMBERS THAT HE COULD BE AT RISK OF LOSING THE UPCOMING MAYOR ELECTION IN LONDON AND EXPLAINED HOW THIS CAN BE AVOIDED.
Mr Khan is running against Conservative party candidate Shaun Bailey to be the next mayor of London.
Bailey has long criticised the London Mayor for the increase of crime in the nation’s capital. Mr Bailey has pledged to reopen all London police stations closed by the current Mayor.
Sadiq Khan warned the Labour party that he could lose the election if they simply presume that London is a labour area. He emphasised that the reason he won in 2015 was due to “hard work and leadership” and that he wants to see this repeated. If not, he is at risk of losing.
The mayor explained: “Don’t presume that the reason why Labour has worked in London is because of something inherent in London.
“Ten years ago, people said Scotland is a Labour country, so we must never be complacent. The reason we did well in London was because of damn hard work and leadership.”
Shaun Bailey claimed Mr Khan was “useless”, he said: “So what we should do is immediately get rid of the current useless Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, who’s doing nothing.”
Sadiq Khan recently visited European Union leaders in Brussels, including lead negotiator, Michel Barnier, and put forward the proposition of associated European citizenship for British citizens after Brexit.
Discussing Labours recent general election loss, Khan said: “There was a route to winning the election where I could just rely upon those who’ve always voted Labour to win.
“That’s not the sort of mayor I wanted to be. I hope I’ve shown I am a mayor for all boroughs. The same goes for national politics.”
He added: “Over the years, I’ve spent a lot of time talking to chief executives, investors, innovators but also…to people who work in retail, hospitality and bus depots.
“We’re going to have to learn the lessons of the past and choose somebody who’s going to get back into the habit of winning again.”
Who do you think will win the mayoral elecitons and who do you want to win?




GOVE PRAISED FOR USING “STRONG LANGUAGE” IN WARNING TO EU AS TRADE TALKS START
Posted by James Cooper | Mar 2, 2020 | Breaking, News
Gove Praised For Using “Strong Language” In Warning To EU As Trade Talks Start
MICHAEL GOVE HAS BEEN PRAISED FOR USING “STRONG POLITICAL LANGUAGE” IN A MESSAGE TO THE EUROPEAN UNION PRIOR TO THE FIRST OFFICIAL TRADE MEETING BETWEEN THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT AND EUROPEAN UNION NEGOTIATORS THIS WEEK.
Mr Gove highlighted how the British government will no longer seek permission from the European Union to act in the future on social and environmental issues and outlined the governments plan for UK waters.

The former environment minister sent a stern message to EU bosses who are calling for the UK to align to their environmental, state aid and workers right regulations after Brexit.
Gove outlined that in some areas the UK has a higher standard than EU regulations and that there will be no reduction in standards in environmental areas.
He said: “In a number of key areas, we either exceed EU standards or have led the way to improved standards. On workers rights, for example, the UK offers a year of maternity leave with the option to convert this to parental leave so that both parents can share care.

“The EU minimum is just 14 weeks. And on environmental standards, we are the first country in the world to introduce legally binding greenhouse gas emission reduction targets through the climate change act.”

Adding: “We do not need the EU’s permission to be a liberal nation leading the world in the fight against climate change and social progress.”
The MP who is in charge of overseeing no-deal preparations also reiterated the governments plan to take back control of UK fishing waters after Brexit and not link UK waters to access to EU markets.
Mr Gove said: ” We will take back control of our waters as an independent coastal state and we will not link access to our waters to access to EU markets. Our fishing waters are our sovereign resource and we want to determine other countries’ access to our resources on our terms,”

One voter commented on the Express website saying: “Was rather pleasing to hear such strong political language in-support of this country, dare I say Boris and Co may just be doing as promised!.
What a wonderful day.”
Another added: “Long Long Long overdue. You have my backing and full support.”
And: “The Tories are learning how to negotiate – nice one! Let’s hope the deeds emulate the words.”

London Muslim Mayor says Islam is compatible with Western values "Anyone who thinks otherwise is an ignorant"
Video of Right-wing activist Paul Joseph Watson lashing out at London Mayor, who said "Islam is compatible with Western values... Anyone who thinks otherwise is an ignorant"', went viral on social media with millions of views, likes and shares.
Sadiq Khan worked as a human rights lawyer and as a member of the British Parliament before he was elected mayor of London making history as the first Muslim to serve in the position. Khan is also the first Muslim to lead any Western capital city.
More than 1.3m Londoners voted for him - that's almost 57% of those voting - and he quit as Tooting MP straight away to become in his words a "full-time mayor".
During his tenure as Mayor of London he consistently attacked US President Donald Trump but never criticized Arab leaders of countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia who commit human rights abuses on a regular basis.

Report: London conspiracy group ‘Keep Talking’ uniting far-left and far-right
Warning comes from antisemitism monitor Community Security Trust and anti-fascist group HOPE not hate after three year investigation
By JEWISH NEWS REPORTER
February 24, 2020, 2:35 pm  
Keep Talking co-founder Nick Kollerstrom (Screenshot from YouTube)
A joint report by Britain’s foremost antisemitism monitor and a leading anti-fascist group has shone a light on a conspiracy site called ‘Keep Talking’ which is uniting the far-left with the far-right.

Investigators from the Community Security Trust (CST) and HOPE not hate said they had been tracking users of the site for three years and had come to realise that traditional left-right labels no longer apply in the realm of extremist beliefs.


“The deeper we looked into the ‘Keep Talking’ group, the harder it became to know whether it was far-right, far-left, a mixture of the two, or something else entirely,” said Dave Rich and Joe Mulhall, joint authors of the report.

“The old political labels no longer apply when you have a shared belief in a hidden hand that secretly runs the world.”

They said social media meant that “even ridiculous cranks have influence and connections today that were unimaginable just a few years ago,” with internet access substituting the need for secret group membership.

“Their conspiracy theories spread across ideologies, connect political movements that were previously opposed to one another, and embed the view that the world is shaped and controlled by hidden hands. And more often than not, just as it always was, that hidden hand is identified as Jewish.”

Among the London group’s co-founders are Ian Fantom, who argued that MI6 poisoned a former Russian spy in Salisbury, and former academic Nick Kollerstrom, who said Auschwitz inmates “sunbathed by the swimming pool”.

Both men engage in a wide range of conspiracy theories, with Fantom having used the diaries of Zionist thinker Theodore Herzl to dismiss reports of antisemitism in the Labour Party in a report published on the far-right website The Unz Review.

In 2015, he wrote that British businessman Cecil Rhodes “was in fact working with Lord Rothschild to create a network of central banks in order to dominate the world by means of financial power”.

Meanwhile Kollerstrom, who has attended several meetings of the far-right group London Forum, has written of “phantom gas chambers” and argued that Israeli intelligence service Mossad was behind 9/11.

In their report, Rich and Mulhall said: “There are few people who can bring fascists and other far-right activists and pro-Palestine Labour activists into the same group, but Kollerstrom and Fantom have made it a regular occurrence.”

Attendees and speakers at Keep Talking events include disgraced jazz singer Gilad Atzmon, expelled union official Peter Gregson and antisemitic singer Alison Chabloz.

Two neo-Nazi groups are to be banned in the UK as terrorist organisations, the home secretary Priti Patel announced on Monday.

The home office is to proscribe the Sonnenkrieg Division (SKD) – a far-right group which saw two members jailed last year over terror offences.

The orders would recognise the far-right System Resistance Network (SRN) as an alias of the proscribed organisation National Action.

Members or anyone found to support either could face up to ten years behind bars, the home office said.

“Recent attacks here and in Germany have highlighted the threat we continue to face from violent extremism,” Patel said in a statement on Monday.

She added: “We are working to keep the public safe by increasing funding for counter terror police and strengthening the law to keep terrorists locked up for longer.

“By proscribing these groups we are making it much harder for them to spread their hateful rhetoric.”

Two teenage members of the SKD were jailed in June for encouraging terrorism, with Prince Harry and Jewish people among their suggested targets.

Michal Szewczuk was jailed for over four years, while Oskar Dunn-Koczorowski received an 18-month detention and training order.

An undercover BBC Wales Investigates reporter who infiltrated the SRN in 2018 was urged by the group to read Adolf Hitler’s book Mein Kampf.

The ban was welcomed by the Community Security Trust in a statement on Monday.

But a spokesperson for the security organisation warned “it is important that our community appreciates the growing menace posed by the violent far right here in Britain and around the world”.

Fiyaz Mughal, director and founder of Faith Matters, hailed the “excellent news” and “really positive move.”

He said: “Far right groups like these are a threat because they are far more organised and their planning makes them dangerous to social cohesion and to communities.”

The threat posed by right-wing extremism in the UK is growing rapidly, the Metropolitan Police warned last year.

Its Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said in September that of 22 plots thwarted since March 2017, seven were connected to far-right beliefs.

“It’s rising from a low base, but it’s probably the fastest growing bit of my casebook at the moment,” Basu said at the time.

A meeting will be held in parliament to address the “urgent priority” of far-right extremism, the Board of Deputies announced today.

The Labour MP David Lammy is set to attend the meeting open to the public next month to be chaired by the Jewish organisation’s vice-president Amanda Bowman.


Other confirmed guests include Elliot Cohen, of the Community Security Trust, Jemma Levene, of the anti-racism charity HOPE not Hate, and Dr Omar Khan, from the Runnymede Trust.

“There has been a recent upsurge in far-right terrorism in the UK, Germany, New Zealand, Norway, the USA and elsewhere,” Bowman said on Monday.

“We are also seeing the worrying re-emergence of far-right political parties and rhetoric. Past history has told us that this cannot go unchallenged, and combatting this lethal hate is an urgent priority for the Jewish community,” she added.

A shooting on two shisha bars in Hanau in Germany that claimed the lives of at least nine people this month was the latest incident of far-right violence.

It followed another deadly shooting which left two people dead during Yom Kippur last year. The attacker attempted to enter a synagogue in the German town of Halle, streaming the incident on social media.

In 2018, the US suffered what is believed to be its worst antisemitic attack in living memory. The shooting on the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh claimed the lives of 11 people.

Meanwhile in the UK, the threat posed by right-wing extremism is growing rapidly, the Metropolitan Police warned last year.

Its Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said in September that of 22 plots thwarted since March 2017, seven were connected to far-right beliefs.

“It’s rising from a low base, but it’s probably the fastest growing bit of my casebook at the moment,” Basu said at the time.

Historic Bomb Cyclone spawned most alerts in England ‘than any other day on record’
OPINION (ETH) – The crazy and extreme weather continues to be seen across the World as now England has just witnessed history unfold as the deadly winter “Bomb Cyclone” that ripped across Britain on Sunday, producing extensive wind damage and rainfall also prompted the largest number of weather warnings and alerts ever recorded in a single day for the UK. According to the Met Office, Britain’s meteorological service. Storm Dennis was expected to dump 5 1/2 inches of rain in south Wales before gradually tapering off.

According to a report from Fox News, The weather service issued a rare “red warning” for life-threatening flooding in that region. Numerous rescues were reported throughout the area. The storm was dubbed a “bomb cyclone” after rapidly intensifying near Iceland Friday before slamming Britain over the weekend.

Bomb cyclones drop some 24 millibars (or atmospheric pressure) over a 24-hour span, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. A typical range in millibars is around 10 to 15.  The National Weather Service Ocean Prediction Center said Storm Dennis deepened by 40 millibars in 24 hours, becoming one of the five strongest non-tropical cyclones on record in the North Atlantic.

That number reached 600 later in the day, Sky News reported.

The fourth named storm of Europe's winter season has already been blamed for the deaths of two men, who were pulled Saturday from the water in separate searches off England's southeastern coast. Another man died Sunday after falling into the River Tawe in south Wales, according to police.

Wales appeared to be bearing the brunt of the two-day storm after a month's amount of rain fell in just 48 hours. Major incidents were declared by emergency services in south Wales and parts of England as police and firefighters worked to rescue people trapped after rivers burst their banks, Reuters reported.

“Agencies are continuing to deal with multiple floods and landslides, and have been required to evacuate residents from houses,” South Wales Police said in a statement.“Some communities have been cutoff as a result, but emergency service workers are working tirelessly to put measures in place to ensure the safety of residents."

Boris Risks U.S. Relationship, Trade Deals as PM Scraps International Trips

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is said to be putting Britain’s future trade deals at risk by delaying international trips.
The prime minister is particularly at risk of further isolating U.S. President Donald Trump by postponing a U.S. trip which had been pencilled in for next month, putting it off until June.
Johnson has already reportedly scrapped planned visits to Washington in January and February.

Downing Street sources speaking to The Sun confirmed the trip had been postponed, but denied rumours that Johnson was deliberating slighting the President, rather that he was keen to stay in the United Kingdom to ensure his domestic agenda is carried out.

Making a Lord of the Rings reference, a Number 10 source told the tabloid: “Levelling up the country, making the streets safe and sorting out the NHS is why the PM won the election.
“When the Eye of Sauron is off the Whitehall machine, things stop working. That is why he has stripped down all his foreign travel this year to get his agenda done.”

However, staff are also concerned about the effect that Johnson stepping back from the world stage is having on the progress of signing post-Brexit free trade deals. So far this year, the prime minister has left his foreign secretary to do the heavy lifting.

Dominic Raab recently returned from a trip to Asia to court diplomats for future trade deals, with the foreign secretary going to Japan rather than Johnson himself. A possible trade deal trip to New Zealand and Australia was also reportedly shelved.

“There is a lot of concern about this,” Downing Street staff told The Sun. “If we don’t do any trade tours this year, it’s going to affect the entire Brexit process. The PM is our best asset.”

The postponed trips to Washington may add further strain to the Special Relationship. On Wednesday, Johnson had criticised the U.S.-UK extradition treaty, calling it “imbalanced” — the remarks coming after ongoing concerns over the prime minister’s decision to allow Huawei to support the construction of the British 5G network, against the security recommendations of allies including the United States.

Nigel Farage wrote this week that Boris’s Huawei decision could threaten a future U.S. trade deal and “imperils” Five Eyes intelligence sharing, adding: “Forming ties with this company is proving to be a monumental mistake at a time when the special relationship should be flourishing.”
