European elections 2019: EU citizens turned away from UK polls

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-48384000

EU citizens living in the UK have told of their anger after they were unable to vote in the European elections.

>The Electoral Commission said the "very short notice" from the government about the UK's participation in the elections had an impact on the process.

>EU citizens can vote in the country they live in by registering to vote and completing a UC1 form.

>But many complained of receiving the form late and of it not being processed by their local authority in time.

Macron Wants UK to Leave by October to Stop Brexit ‘Polluting’ EU

https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/05/23/macron-wants-uk-to-leave-by-october-to-stop-brexit-polluting-eu/

President Emmanuel Macron of France has said that he wants the UK out of the EU by October 31st to stop Brussels’ agenda being “polluted” by Brexit.

>Speaking to Belgian newspaper Le Soir on Wednesday, President Macron appeared to share some of the frustration of Britons that the exit date should have been delayed twice, saying: “In the case of Brexit, you just have to know at some point whether it stops or not.

>“If we follow the logic of saying that it scares us and that we are prepared not to respect the British vote, we betray both the British and the interest of the British,” he added, touching upon a rare sentiment of respect amongst the European elite for the vote to Leave.

>However, the progressive Europhile also saw in a long delay what he perceives s aa danger to advancement of the European Project. The French president was alone amongst his peers at April’s European Summit to push for a shorter extension of Article 50 whilst others, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, were considering a year.

Macron Names Brexit Negotiator Barnier as ‘Great’ Choice for Next EU Chief

https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/05/23/macron-barnier-great-next-eu-chief/

Globalist censorship enthusiast Michel Barnier has “great” qualities to be the next president of the European Commission, according to Emmanuel Macron.

>Commenting on rumours that the EU’s lead Brexit negotiator has been running a shadow campaign to win the bloc’s top job, as something of a ‘compromise’ candidate, the French president was generous with praise about Barnier.

>“Undeniably, Michel Barnier is a man who has great qualities and he demonstrated this once again in the way he handled negotiations with the British,” he said, speaking with Belgian media at the weekend.

>The veteran Eurocrat is “one of the European leaders who have eminent qualities and can be on the list [of candidates to lead the Commission],” Macron told Le Soir’s Wednesday edition, adding that Barnier ticked all the right boxes as someone with “experience at the highest governmental level or European Commission level”.

European Union Election Puts UK Media in Four-Day Bind as Government Unravels

https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/05/23/european-union-election-puts-uk-media-in-four-day-bind-as-government-unravels/

Strict broadcasting rules governing election day reporting are being strung out in some cases for four days while people across Europe vote in EU elections, leaving journalists in a difficult situation over reporting the slow-motion collapse of the British government happening at the same time.

>In ordinary British politics, the goings on of Westminster are generally suspended during elections as all involved campaign and wait with bated breath for results. But with the British people voting for a parliament that isn’t even on British soil, and while the future of Prime Minister Theresa May teeters in the balance, two distinct political stories are developing in tandem.

>Nevertheless, strict laws that govern political reportage on election day to prevent broadcasters that might have the ability to influence voters while the polls are open from doing so — mainly television and radio stations — are making for awkward reports on the political developments of the day.

>This is doubly true in the case of the demise of the Prime Minister’s political career and party, which has been reflected strongly in recent opinion polls — but reporting of which are expressly forbidden on election day.

Vicar Offered to Cover up Jesus for Sex-Segregated Ramadan Event in English Church

https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/05/20/uk-church-cover-crucifix-muslim/

Christians have slammed a vicar for being “ashamed of the gospel” after she offered to “cover” a crucifix and a painting of Jesus in order to host Muslims celebrating the end of Ramadan in an English church.

>The Reverend Lissa Scott also agreed to set up sex-segregated spaces for guests to engage in Islamic prayer in St Matthew and St Luke’s church in Darlington, where the Iftar meal is set to take place on June 2nd, reports the Sunday Times.

>At a planning meeting in May, attended by the Rev Lissa Scott and pro-”diversity” councillor and former mayor, Gerald Lee, representatives from the Yorkshire town’s Muslim community were told that the church would cover crosses and a famous devotional image of Jesus Christ by William Holman Hunt for the event.

>The Sunday Times reported minutes from the meeting read: “One aisle in church to be cleared of chairs for Muslim men to say prayers. Cover Christian crosses/photographs in small rooms for ladies to say prayers.”

Hard-Left Labour Leader Backs British Reparations for Africa, Former

https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/05/20/far-left-labour-leader-backs-reparations-former-colonies/

Hard-left Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has backed suggestions that the British should pay reparations to former colonies of the British Empire.

>In an interview for Dazed magazine, musician Gaika discussed allegedly man-made climate change and Africa with the socialist politician, asking, “Do you think that Britain, in particular, with its history, has a special responsibility to its former colonies? Do you think that debt relief, reparations, things like this, are part of a global climate strategy?”

>“Absolutely,” Mr Corbyn responded in comments reported by The Times, adding, “Debt relief and development goals that encourage the preservation of forests and the use of them in a sustainable way is perfectly possible.”

>This is not the first time the Labour leader has responded positively to proposals for the British government — ultimately, British taxpayers — to pay reparations to former colonies, many of which are still members of the Commonwealth of Nations headed by Queen Elizabeth II.

WATCH: ‘France Does Not Belong to the French!’ – Hundreds of Illegal Migrants Occupy French Airport

https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/05/20/watch-france-does-not-belong-french-hundreds-illegal-migrants-occupy-french-airport/

Hundreds of illegal migrants occupied the Paris Charles de Gaulle airport in France, preventing people from boarding their flights and demanding to speak to Emmanuel Macron’s prime minister, Edouard Philippe.

>“France does not belong to the French! Everyone has a right to be here!” yelled one of the migrants, organised by the pro-migration La Chapelle Debout group, through a loudspeaker, as they pressed for their presence in the country to be regularised.

>Calling themselves “Black Vests” in a homage — of sorts — to the Yellow Vests who have been protesting Emmanuel Macron for months, the migrants also demanded Air France “stop any financial, material, logistical or political participation in deportations” in a statement published on Facebook.

UK Police to ‘Intervene’ if Hezbollah Flags Flown on Al Quds Day

https://www.breitbart.com/middle-east/2019/05/10/uk-police-to-intervene-if-hezbollah-flags-flown-on-al-quds-day/

The Metropolitan Police “fully intends” to confiscate flags, banners and other items bearing the insignia of the Iran-backed Hezbollah terrorist organization if they appear at the Al-Quds Day March through central London next month.

>Senior officers said the sight of Hezbollah flags on the streets of the capital had been an inflammatory feature of past marches because anti-Israel protesters were able to say they were supporting only the political wing, which previously was not banned.

>That loophole was closed in March when the House of Commons voted to ban all wings of Hezbollah, due to its destabilizing influence in the Middle East, classifying the movement as a terrorist organization.

>The new law also tightened restrictions regarding the display of the proscribed organization’s flags, granting the police stronger powers to confiscate such items.

Illegal Migrant Causes Havoc in French Brasserie Rampage

https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/05/10/illegal-migrant-causes-havoc-in-french-brasserie-rampage/

A 27-year-old illegal migrant who was living on the street has been charged in a court in Toulouse after he went on a rampage at a local brasserie, causing thousands of euros worth of damage.

>The attack took place on April 30th and saw the illegal migrant enter the famous “Le Cotton Club” establishment in the late afternoon and, according to a report from French newspaper La Depeche, he began to immediately start to throw chairs and other furniture around the restaurant.

>A magistrate in the Toulouse Criminal Court described the scene while addressing the migrant saying, “Tables, chairs, thirty glasses, the main window … nothing has resisted you! It took four of the employees to control you!” One employee of the restaurant was also forced to take six days off work due to injuries suffered as a result of the migrant attacking them as well.

Farage Calls for ‘Peaceful Revolution’ to Challenge UK’s ‘Broken’ Politics

https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/05/04/nigel-farage-peaceful-political-revolution-challenge-broken-system/

Nigel Farage has said that the UK’s “broken” and “out of touch” political system needs to be challenged in a “peaceful political revolution” so that Britons can “win back the ability of our nation to be democratic.”

>Addressing a crowd at a Brexit Party rally in Flyde, on Saturday, Mr Farage warned that “there is something absolutely fundamental at stake” beyond the campaign for May 23rd’s European Parliament election, which goes to the very core of British democracy.

>“Can you imagine an African country, if there had been an election or a referendum that had been overturned? Many of those in the Remain camp would be having fits of the vapours, demanding the United Nations was sent in and that democracy must win through,” Mr Farage said.

>“But here in the country that has had a continuous parliament since the thirteenth century… in the country that has the mother of parliaments, it is in our very country that the very democratic process has been wilfully betrayed by a political class that has acted — in my view — in the most disgraceful, almost treacherous manner,” he said.

Austrians Describe ‘Feeling Like Foreigners’ in Their Own Country

Hundreds of regular Austrian citizens expressed to a national newspaper their views on migration, with some saying they felt like foreigners in their own country.

>The comments flooded in, partly in reaction to populist Vice Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache commenting on the concept of “population replacement” and in response to an opinion article in Austria’s largest newspaper Kronen Zeitung that agreed that demographic changes are a reality but which criticised Strache’s term for being a “conspiracy.”

>Kronen Zeitung republished some of the “hundreds” of responses they received to the column with many readers saying they felt that mass migration had changed Austria to the point where some felt highly alienated.

>“The mood in our condominium has deteriorated so much that we (65 and 68) are ready to move away to finally be able to live in peace again,” one comment read, while another lamented the trend of foreigners not learning the German language.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn wrote a foreword to a book which argued that Jews controlled banks and the media.

>Conservative peer and Times columnist Daniel Finkelstein uncovered the foreword written in 2011 by the Labour leader to the new edition of British economist John A Hobson’s 1902 book Imperialism: A Study, which includes antisemitic tropes and conspiracy theories about the Rothschild banking family.

>In the forward, written four years before the far-leftist became party leader, Mr Corbyn described Imperialism as a “great tome” which was “brilliant, and very controversial at the time.”

>Hobson was an influence on Lenin and other Marxists and in the book described European finance as being controlled by “men of a single and peculiar race, who have behind them many centuries of financial experience”, and claimed that “great financial houses” have “control which they exercise over the body of public opinion through the Press.”

>“The Prime Minister’s decision has been informed by his conduct surrounding an investigation into the circumstances of the unauthorised disclosure of information from a meeting of the National Security Council.”

Stockholm Anti-Extremism Tsar: ISIS Returnees Now ‘Caring Citizens’

Stockholm residents have nothing to fear from Islamic State fighters, as they have returned from the Middle East to live peaceful, crime-free lives in Sweden — according to officials in the nation’s capital.

>Ms Engel, formerly a Labour MP, has tendered her resignation from her post as Commissioner for Shale Gas in protest at the government’s policy.

>Instead of accepting the overwhelming scientific evidence that fracking is safe, she complains, the government has been strangling the industry at birth by trying to appease ‘noisy green campaigners’.

>According to David Rose, who broke the story in the Mail on Sunday, Ms Engel sent her ‘explosive’ resignation letter to Energy Secretary Greg Clark last night.

Poll: Brexit Party in Third Place for National Voting Intentions, Ahead of Pro-Remain Lib Dems

https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/04/27/brexit-party-gaining-support-third-place-national-voting-intentions/

The Brexit Party is gaining ground in national election voting intentions, coming third behind Labour and the Tories and ahead of establishment Remainer party the Liberal Democrats.

>The poll by YouGov, conducted between the 23rd and 24th of April, found that if there were a nation-wide General Election tomorrow, 30 per cent would vote Labour, 27 per cent for Conservatives, and 14 per cent for the Brexit Party. When Britons were asked the same question the week prior, support for the Brexit Party was at 12 per cent — representing a two point increase.

>The rising support comes as the party’s leader Nigel Farage announced that the Brexit Party, which polled first in a breakout result for European Parliament election voting intentions last week, would be running in May 2022’s General Election.

Macron Vows to Tackle ‘Political Islam’ in ‘Act II’ of Presidency

https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/04/27/macron-vows-tackle-political-islam-act-ii-presidency/

French President Emmanuel Macron has declared his intention to tackle “political Islam” in what he is labelling “Act II” of his term as French leader.

>President Macron said that the first “Act” of his presidency, which began in May 2017, was over and that he would be looking to focus on different issues between 2019 and 2021 when he is set to try for re-election. Among the topics will be the fight against a political Islam Macron described as forming parallel societies and attempting to “secede” from French society, Le Point reports.

>“We are above all the children of the Enlightenment,” Macron said and added that he wanted to see France rediscover “the art of being French” in a country that has become increasingly divided in recent years.

>One of the main pillars of Macron’s vision for France is the French brand of secularism, known in French as ‘Laïcité,’ with the French president saying, “Secularism is the possibility of believing in God or not believing in Him… of never imposing on society a religion or detracting from rules of the Republic to do this.”

Exclusive: Former British Afghan Commander Warns on ‘Terrible, Highly Political’ EU Defence Fund

https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/04/25/exclusive-former-british-afghan-commander-warns-terrible-highly-political-eu-defence-fund/

The European Parliament has approved a multi-billion euro EU Defence Fund described as “terrible and highly political” by a senior British Armed Forces veteran, as the bloc’s plans for a European Army — once dismissed as “fantasy” — plod forwards.

>The €13 billion EU Defence Fund was approved by 328 votes in favour to 231 against, according to Forbes, and helps move forward European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker’s agenda for a Defence Union — which eurocrats have become increasingly open about since the Brexit referendum was got out of the way in 2016.

>“More defence co-operation in Europe is essential to address the growing global instabilities and cross-border threats to our security. It is clear that no country can do this alone,” claimed Elżbieta Bieńkowska, a member of the unelected European Commission, which acts as both the EU’s executive arm and the sole initiator of EU-level legislation — with the European Parliament having a subordinate role amending and approving bloc law.

>“The European Defence Fund marks a big step forward in European defence matters. By promoting a strong and innovative defence industry, the Fund will strengthen the EU’s strategic autonomy and technological leadership in defence,” she added.

Delingpole: Sir Roger Scruton Just Won a Landmark Victory in the Culture Wars

https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/04/25/sir-roger-scruton-vindicated-over-leftist-smears/

Conservative philosopher Sir Roger Scruton has won a spectacular victory against the New Statesman – the left-wing magazine which interviewed him and then tried to smear him as a racist, bigot and anti-Semite.

>The smear — a result of selective editing of the interview and malicious tweeting by the magazine’s deputy editor George Eaton — cost Scruton his job on a government advisory body. Among those who initially condemned Scruton for his alleged remarks were various Conservatives, including MPs Tom Tugendhat, Johnny Mercer and James Brokenshire, and former Chancellor of the Exchequer turned freesheet editor George Osborne.

>But now journalist Douglas Murray has got hold of the original interview recording and analysed the transcripts in the Spectator. What becomes immediately clear is that Scruton was badly misrepresented. Not only is Eaton shown repeatedly trying to provoke Scruton into voicing provocative opinions he doesn’t actually hold, but it is also evident that the version of events Eaton subsequently presented in a series of trolling tweets bears little relation to Scruton’s measured, thoughtful discourse during the interview.

>The fall out of this will be huge. Indeed, it is hard to overstate what a triumph this represents for free speech, sound thinking and honest journalism against the malign and increasingly devious and censorious forces of the modern left.

Theresa May appears set to approve Chinese participation in “non-core” elements of Britain’s 5G network via Huawei, delivering a blow to the Five Eyes security alliance of Anglosphere nations, reports suggest.

>The British prime minister overrode the objections of Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson, Home Secretary Sajid Javid, Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, Trade Secretary Liam Fox, and International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt at a meeting of the National Security Council to allow Huawei, an allegedly employee-owned Chinese telecoms giant, to develop “non-core” infrastructure for the 5G network, according to The Telegraph.

>Digital minister Margot James has pushed back on the reports somewhat, not denying that Huawei will be involved in 5G development, but claiming that “In spite of Cabinet leaks to the contrary, final decision yet to be made on managing threats to telecoms infrastructure.”

Here Come the Architects: Modernists Want Glass Roof, Steel Spire, or Minaret for Notre Dame

https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/04/20/modern-architects-want-glass-roof-steel-spire-minaret-notre-dame/

Modern architects have begun circling the charred remains of Notre Dame, proposing that it should not be faithfully restored, but rebuilt with “contemporary” features such as a glass roof, steel spire, or even a minaret.

>With leading academics and professionals in architecture generally being hostile to building or restoring anything in styles predating the infamous Le Corbusier (Charles-Édouard Jeanneret) and the Bauhaus school, they were quick to pounce when President Emmanuel Macron’s prime minister announced there would be a competition to “ask the question of whether we should even recreate the spire as it was conceived by… Or if, as is often the case in the evolution of heritage, we should endow Notre-Dame with a new spire”.

>The Telegraph published an article claiming it would be a “travesty” to restore Notre Dame as it was just a day after the fire, while Rolling Stone quoted a Harvard architecture historian as saying that the burning of a building “so overburdened with meaning… feels like an act of liberation.”

>Now proposals for a new spire are beginning to come together, and leading architects do indeed appear to be pushing for a “contemporary” spire in the ubiquitous glass and steel style used for modern buildings all over the world.

One of Britain’s top cops has warned prominent pro-Brexit figures to watch their language, claiming that if they fail to do so they could “inflame” an already “incredibly febrile atmosphere”.

>In just the latest example of Britain’s police forces taking to their newly discovered role of the guardians of speech with enthusiasm, a senior officer said of public discussion of Brexit: “This is highly emotive … I think there is a responsibility on those individuals that have a platform, and have a voice, to communicate in a way that is temperate and is not in any way going to inflame people’s views or cause any actions out of there.”

>“I think we are in an incredibly febrile atmosphere. There is a lot of angry talk that you can pick up if you look across social media.”

>YouGov surveyed 2,098 adults between March 31st and April 1st and found that when asked the question, “If Britain has not agreed a deal by April 12th, what do you think should happen?” a plurality backed leaving on no-deal, World Trade Organization (WTO) terms.

>Broken down by region, 44 per cent of the south of England (excluding London) said they prefer no deal versus 34 per cent who said they would want to remain in the EU; 46 per cent of the combined Midlands/Wales region back no deal (31 per cent Remain); and 41 per cent of the North preferred leaving in a clean break versus 34 per cent for Remain.

>Both countries voted to leave the EU in the June 2016 referendum, leading to the victory for Leave for the entire sovereign state of the UK, and the results counter Remainer claims that Britons had changed their minds about Brexit — voters rather embracing essentially what establishment politicians deem a “hard” exit over Remaining in the EU.

A vast network of British Asian gang members linked to Abu Hamza and the 7/7 bombers infiltrated government agencies, defrauded taxpayers of billions of pounds, and funnelled tens of millions to Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda over 20 years, an investigation claims to have found.

>These funds were allegedly used to provide lavish lifestyles for the gang’s members, including luxury cars and properties — but also helped bankroll Osama bin Laden’s notorious al-Qaeda network, claims a Sunday Times investigation.

Macron Hopes Old Woman Injured in Police Charge Gains ‘Wisdom’, ‘Fragile’ People Should Avoid Prohibited Areas

https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/03/25/macron-hopes-old-woman-injured-in-police-charge-gains-wisdom-fragile-people-should-avoid-prohibited-areas/

PARIS (AP) – French President Emmanuel Macron has told a newspaper he hopes a 73-year old Yellow Vest protester who suffered serious head injuries after being charged by police in Nice, gains “wisdom” over the incident.

>Anti-globalisation activist Genevieve Legay remains in hospital Monday after police advanced aggressively on people defying a protest ban Saturday.

>An Associated Press reporter saw Legay, who was waving a rainbow flag marked “Peace”, fall to the pavement, blood spilling from her head.

Neil Basu criticises hypocrisy of mainstream news providers in wake of Christchurch attack

>Britain’s counter-terrorism chief has said far-right terrorists are being radicalised by mainstream newspaper coverage, while also criticising the hypocrisy of outlets such as Mail Online, which uploaded the “manifesto” of the gunman in the Christchurch terror attack.

>Neil Basu, one of Britain’s top police officers, said it was ironic that while newspapers have repeatedly criticised the likes of Facebook and Google for hosting extremist content, sites including the Sun and the Mirror rushed to upload clips of footage filmed by the gunman as he attacked two mosques in New Zealand.

>“The same media companies who have lambasted social media platforms for not acting fast enough to remove extremist content are simultaneously publishing uncensored Daesh [Islamic State] propaganda on their websites, or make the rambling ‘manifestos’ of crazed killers available for download,” Basu said in an open letter to the media on how to report terrorism.

https://www.express.co.uk/news/weather/1103551/BBC-Weather-forecast-snow-UK-news-Met-Office-weather-March-2019

BBC WEATHER has forecast snow is set to return to some parts of the country this weekend as bone-chilling air heads southwards towards Britain.

>BBC Weather has claimed snow could blanket northern parts of Scotland and fall to lower levels as bitterly cold air returns to the nation this weekend. Temperatures have neared the high teens this week with spring-like conditions gripping much of Britain. But, thermometers are expected to dip once again this weekend, as a bone-chilling system whips towards the north of the UK.

Theresa May will return to the UK later to try to convince MPs to support her withdrawal deal after the EU agreed to postpone Brexit beyond 29 March.

>On Thursday night, after eight hours of talks, EU leaders offered to delay Brexit until 22 May if MPs approve Mrs May's deal next week.

Swedish Employment Service Demands More Migration to Prop up Welfare State

https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/03/21/swedish-employment-service-demand-more-migration-prop-up-welfare-state/

Sweden needs more migrants to keep its vast welfare state afloat despite the high unemployment rate for foreigners, according to the country’s Public Employment Service Director General Mikael Sjöberg.

>Mr Sjöberg, along with labour market analyst Torbjörn Israelsson, argues that the increase in the country’s elder population in coming decades could lead to a collapse of the welfare state without added migration, Nyheter Idag reports.

>The pair, do, however, acknowledge the huge disparity between the employment rate of native-born Swedes and foreign-born residents which was highlighted in a report last year that showed natives to have a low 3.6 per cent unemployment rate while the rate for foreigners was 19.9 per cent.

>The unemployment difference is also clearly seen in the heavily migrant-populated city of Malmö where the unemployment rate is double the national average.

Watch Live: UK Prime Minister May Addresses Nation on Brexit Crisis

https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/03/20/watch-live-uk-prime-minister-may-addresses-nation-on-brexit-crisis/

The Prime Minister addressed the nation Wednesday evening, telling the British public that the country would not be leaving the European Union next week as promised.

>The notification from the Prime Minister’s office of the last-minute address of the nation came after Theresa May wrote to the European Union asking for an extension of Article 50 — the political shorthand name for the negotiating period Britain has been engaged in for the past two years — before being almost immediately rejected.

>While Brexit is meant to officially take place on March 29th — a date promised by the Prime Minister 108 times, according to the research of one member of Parliament — May has now requested an extension to June 30th, to give her extra time to force her controversial new negotiated relationship with the EU on the country.

>The European Union reacted by saying the extension must be either much shorter — just a few weeks — or much longer, at a year or more. Adding to speculation over what might yet be awaiting Britain, the Prime Minister somewhat cryptically told Parliament during her comments at lunchtime that she would not be the Prime Minister to see Brexit extended beyond June 30th — apparently implying that if Parliament or the European Union attempted to force a longer delay, she would resign.

https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/03/11/eu-prez-uks-experience-of-leaving-eu-will-serve-as-a-deterrent-to-others/

European Parliament president Antonio Tajani has said that the experiences of Britain attempting to leave the EU will serve as a “deterrent” to other nations considering leaving the bloc.

>Speaking to Germany’s Morgenpost, the Italian politician was asked whether, after nearly three years since the referendum and months of negotiation with obstructive Eurocrats in Brussels, he believed other Eurosceptic member states would be inspired by the UK to leave the bloc.

>“I think that’s impossible,” Mr Tajani told the Berlin daily. “The example of the British will serve as a deterrent. We have to change the European Union. But we have to stay together.”

>Saying that he would be “very happy if the British stayed in the EU,” he maintained that Brussels would remain inflexible on Prime Minister Theresa May’s withdrawal agreement and would only grant an extension to Article 50 if the UK gave a reason — suggesting a “new election or a new referendum” — but otherwise, the current impasse would not be eased by the bloc.

Even though Cicero almost certainly never used those pungent lines above so frequently attributed to him on the internet, it’s blindingly obvious whom he would have meant if he had been using them: Tony bloody Blair.

>There is lots of competition for the title Most Godawful Prime Minister in British History. Theresa May is currently keeping it in a locked safe, above the drawer where she keeps her leather trousers. But Blair is and long has been one of the strongest contenders for the crown. And it’s quite possible given today’s allegations that he has been “secretly advising’ Emmanuel Macron on how to thwart Brexit – that he’ll snatch the title back from May and keep it forever.

>According to the Telegraph – citing “sources in Paris” – Tony Blair has been advising the EU to give Britain no concessions at all in the Brexit negotiations. Eventually, so his theory goes, Britain will see the error of its ways and realise that it has much less to lose simply by staying in the EU.

>There’s a word for colluding with foreign powers against your own people. In better times, Tony Blair would have been imprisoned in the Tower and then shot at dawn for it. And in better times still, he would have been hung, drawn and quartered – his entrails burned in front of him – before his head was put on a spike at the entrance to the city of London pour encourager les autres.

Globalist French President Emmanuel Macron has made a direct address to the over 500 million people who live in the European Union, calling on them to support his vision of a more centralised and powerful “project” European Union which, he believes, could even entice the United Kingdom into cancelling Brexit.

>The plea to voters to back an enhanced European Union which would take more control over its member nation states comes just months before the continental power bloc holds elections to select Members of the European Parliament for the next five-year term.

>While the European Parliament itself is largely impotent, with the real power to propose and direct legislation given to the unelected European Commission, the vote is being seen as one that will inform the tone and direction of the European Union for the coming years. Given several recent polls and projections that suggest populist parties are likely to surge in the vote, loyal Europhiles including President Macron have made campaigning in the vote a personal interest.

>An English language translation of the letter provided by the President’s Elysee Palace office reveals Macron’s preoccupation with Brexit, which he called a symbol of “the crisis of Europe, which has failed to respond to its peoples’ needs for protection from the major shocks of the modern world… the anger mongers, backed by fake news, promise anything and everything.”

Analysis comes as government expected to outline plans to mitigate price shock next week

>The government is expected next week to spell out its plan to mitigate a potential £9bn food-price shock from a no-deal Brexit, as analysts predict the cost of staples such as beef, cheddar cheese and tomatoes could soar.

>The Prime Minister’s so-called neutral government motion which declares “discussions between the UK and the EU on the Northern Ireland backstop are ongoing” will be voted upon after a debate in Parliament, but was rumoured to be the subject of a Brexiteer revolt earlier in the day. Pro-Brexit MPs of the European Research Group had earlier said they could vote against the motion because it eliminates the possibility of a no-deal Brexit, they claim, one of the few remaining potent negotiating advantages the British still hold.

>By Thursday evening it seemed the group had softened its stance, deciding to abstain on the vote rather than vote against their own party leader, Sky News reported. The lack of their votes still means the government is likely to be defeated, however, as the Prime Minister’s majority is so slim.

China slashes ground troops by half, boosts strategic force

>China has slashed the size of its Army by about 50% and boosted other units like strategic support force responsible for cyber warfare, according to the country's official news agency Xinhua

>"this new data is unprecedented in the history of the PLA (People's Liberation Army) - the army now accounts for less than 50% of the total number of PLA troops; almost half of our non-combatant units have been made redundant, and the number of officers in the PLA has been reduced by 30%," the news agency said

>it said the four other branches of the PLA - the navy, air force, rocket force and strategic support force, which is responsible for areas such as cyberwarfare - now jointly make up more than half of the Chinese military, overtaking the army

Britain is right to send its navy to the South China Sea

>the Royal Navy and US Navy held joint exercises in the South China Sea last week, for the first time since China began building new military bases in those waters; the exercises sent a message to Beijing that it faces an evolving united front of nations committed to maintaining freedom of navigation in some of the world’s most vital waterways

>London has repeatedly stated that the United Kingdom will increase its activities in Asian waters, in large measure as a response to the threat posed by China’s growing strength and militarisation of man-made islands in the region

>Teaming up British ships with the US Navy sends a strong signal that Beijing is increasingly alienating the world’s more powerful nations; it is also a significant boon to Asian nations who have felt trapped between America and China; the more that a community of maritime interests develops in Asia, the more that smaller nations will feel they are able to resist Beijing’s demands over territorial issues and blandishments which pull them to China’s side

How Britain's Ministry of Defence is playing for time (and money) in a dangerous world

>December 2018, just before policymakers and pundits escaped their besieged bunkers for Christmas, the UK government published the long-awaited final report on its Modernising Defence Programme; this programme was meant to update the military commitments made in the last full-blown Strategic Defence and Security Review of 2015

>revising 2015’s review became necessary thanks to a marked change in circumstances. Partly, those changes are strategic; relations with Russia have deteriorated even further since 2015, Islamic State (IS) is much diminished, and new military technologies and tactics are advancing

>the Treasury, for its part, recognises that Britain’s security environment has deteriorated to a worse condition than at any point since the Cold War. Yet it is still attempting to avoid major new spending commitments until the full fiscal shock of Brexit becomes clear. It has also long been sceptical of the MOD’s budgetary requests, viewing the department as a perennial financial black hole

HMS Mersey, migrants and the Royal Navy

After declaring a “major incident” the Home Secretary has formally requested assistance from the MoD to deal with a growing number of migrants attempting to enter the UK by crossing the English Channel in small boats

>he Home office will pay the MoD the approximately £20,000 per day it costs to operate the ship and she will remain on station until relieved by the two UK Border Force cutters returning from the Mediterranean; it is unclear how long this will take, HMC Seeker is currently alongside in Gibraltar and HMC Protector is in the harbour at Mytilini on the Greek island of Lesbos

>for HMS Mersey, conducting surveillance a few miles away from Portsmouth and in partnership with other UK government agencies is not especially demanding or a big departure from normal OPV duties; should she be involved in rescuing migrants from small boats and delivering them into UK ports that would be something different and probably attract a storm of controversy

>it is reassuring the RN is ready and able to bolster the UK Border force for a short period when needed; this ‘crisis’ has shown there is a shortage of both RN and UKBF patrol assets which needs to be addressed but even if better equipped, neither of these agencies can solve the problem of migration, which is a global issue requiring joined-up international agreements

>it's the responsibility of the authorities there to ensure that anyone in distress in these zones receives assistance. In reality, if people are in danger, any boat nearby will have a duty to rescue them; those picked up in the UK zone will be taken to an English port and those in the French zone to a port in France

Black Dems Upset Pelosi Considering Committee Term Limits

Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA), the Chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), said on Thursday that it is a “bad idea” for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to consider instituting term limits on committee chairs.

>Pelosi said on Thursday that she was “sympathetic to the concerns that have been expressed” by some House Democrats regarding term limits.

>“I think it’s a bad idea, I think it’s awful timing, and I think it’s a hell of a reward for all these chairmen who went out there traveling the country and busting their behinds to get Democrats elected,” Richmond told The Hill.

>As The Hill noted, Republicans “have an established system of capping chairmanships,” arguing that “the constant churn of new faces brings fresh perspectives and ideas to the legislative process.” But, on the flip side, “chairmen who lose their gavel may want to leave Congress altogether, depriving the institution of experienced legislators” with institutional knowledge.

Despite EU Arrivals Lowest Since 2012, Migration Drives Non-UK Born Population to 9.4 Million

British government statistics show that net arrivals from the European Union are at their lowest since 2014, but this has not stopped rising immigration from the rest of the world continuing to push the United Kingdom’s population upward.

>Despite net EU arrivals — the difference between those arriving and leaving — falling to the lowest level since 2012, this group still yielded an overall positive figure in the ONS statistics, with approximately 74,000 more European Union citizens arriving than leaving during the period.

>Far larger were arrivals from the rest of the world, which are at their highest level since 2014, with net addition of 248,000.

>Overall, the net-positive levels of immigration, which despite coming below the recent 2016 peak, are still running at historically high levels. The ONS revealed that the foreign-born population of the United Kingdom now stands at 9.4 million and that arrivals from Romania in recent years have been one of the largest drivers of growth in that total.

Theresa May has written a “letter to the nation” begging the public to support her Brexit deal, which has been signed off by EU leaders but could be voted down in Parliament by Tory Brexiteers and Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party (DUP).

>The Prime Minister has agreed to pay a £39 billion+ divorce settlement to the EU and submitted to a lengthy “transition” period after Brexit in which Britain will remain subject to all EU rules and regulations, without any representation in EU institutions, during which a future relationship can be negotiated.

>If one cannot be struck in time, the “transition” can be extended for up to two years, or the United Kingdom and European Union will enter into “backstop” arrangements which the UK cannot leave without permission, and which would involve the UK continuing adopting EU regulations on goods, competition, state aid, and more, as interpreted by EU judges, and establish a “single customs territory” which largely duplicates the EU Customs Union.

>Theresa May does not enjoy an outright majority in Parliament, having to rely on Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) to pass legislation — and the Brexit-supporting party has vowed to vote against the deal, over additional provision in the backstop which would leave their Province subject to additional EU obligations in order to keep the border with the Irish Republic open.

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/nov/22/uk-organised-crime-can-police-catch-up-national-crime-agency-lynne-owens

Faced with new threats from international gangsters, the boss of the National Crime Agency, Lynne Owens, thinks UK policing needs a radical reboot. By Alex Perry

>All the cases Owens cited were examples of organised crime, illicit national and transnational networks that have multiplied since the 1980s and now make an annual £1.5tn around the world and £37bn, or 1.8% of GDP, in Britain. It was to tackle this threat that the NCA was established five years ago as a national intelligence and police force – inevitably described in the press as the closest thing Britain has to an FBI. What to many might sound like a terrifying catalogue of crime, then, is to Owens, as the NCA’s director-general, a to-do list. Since we spoke, Owens’s caseload has expanded again to include investigations into the origins of Brexiter Arron Banks’s campaign cash and how an Azerbaijani banker’s wife, Zamira Hajiyeva, sustained a lifestyle that ran to spending £16m in Harrods in a decade.

Brexiteer Predicts No Confidence Could Start Monday, Says May’s Deal Will Force Britons into ‘Serfdom’

Nadine Dorries predicts that the process for a no-confidence vote in Theresa May could start Monday, warning the current Brexit deal would force Britons into “serfdom.”

>“I think we’ll probably see things moving on Monday.” the Tory Brexiteer told Sky News on Saturday, estimating that if the chairman of the 1922 Committee Sir Graham Brady had received the 48 letters of no confidence from MPs needed to trigger a vote, he may “contact people who have submitted their letters to see if they still want to leave their letters submitted.”

>While 21 MPs have publicly stated they have submitted their letters to the backbench committee, Ben Bradley MP claimed that the number was “significantly” higher than that and he could name “five or six more” fellow Tory MPs.

>“There are some colleagues who think they can name 50 people. I’ll guess we’ll find out in the coming days, but I think it’s an awful lot closer [to a confidence vote] than it was a week or so ago,” he said, telling the broadcaster a number of MPs are taking the weekend to consider their position.

>Brexit leader Mr Farage gave his rundown on Theresa May’s deal with the European Union to Breitbart News Daily host Alex Marlow on Wednesday, when he said he was “absolutely incensed” over the news. Pressed to give his analysis of the situation, Mr Farage told the programme: “…this is awful! We have agreed to give the European Union something between 40 to 60 billion sterling ($50-75 billion).

worst deal in history sounds bad that

Bisto owner plans Brexit stockpile

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-46191729

Premier Foods has said it intends to stockpile raw materials in the run-up to Brexit as fears grow over gridlock at UK ports.

>The firm, which owns Bisto, Oxo and Mr Kipling, said it was taking steps "in the absence of certainty over the arrangements for the UK's departure from the EU".

>Premier Foods said it expected to spend up to £10m on the preparations.

>It also hopes to sell its Ambrosia custard and creamed rice business.

As Brexit Deadlines Loom and Cabinet Rebels Gather, PM May Claims Deal Won’t Come at ‘Any Cost’

https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2018/11/13/brexit-deadlines-loom-cabinet-rebels-gather-pm-may-claims-deal-wont-come-any-cost/

Hopes of escaping the Brexit in name only (‘Brino’) arrangements created by the European Union which would see the UK either in whole or in part bound indefinitely by EU laws were raised after the Prime Minister said a deal would not come at “any cost”.'

>The Prime Minister said almost two years ago that no deal would be better than a bad deal for Britain, a position long held by Brexiteers fearful that negotiations with the European Union could be co-opted by Brussels to punish the United Kingdom for trying to leave.

France’s Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire has called for Europe to become an “empire” to compete with the United States after the country’s President Emmanuel Macron called for an EU army to defend against the NATO ally.

>“It’s about Europe having to become a kind of empire, as China is. And how the U.S. is,” Mr Le Maire told Germany’s Handelsblatt.

>Adding that it would be a “peaceful empire,” the economics and finance minister touted the progressive government’s green credentials, saying that the European empire should “rel[y] on green growth. Neither China nor the U.S., who are leaving the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, are on this path.”

>Quizzed by the journalist on his reference to “empire,” Mr Le Maire said: “Do not get me wrong, I’m talking about a peaceful empire that’s a constitutional state.

Justin Trudeau: New Trade Deal Must Protect Canadian Cultural Sovereignty and Identity

https://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/09/05/justin-trudeau-new-trade-deal-must-protect-canadian-cultural-sovereignty-and-identity/

>Prime Minister Justin Trudeau insisted he will not agree to any new trade pact with the United States that doesn’t protect Canadian sovereignty and identity.

>“It is inconceivable to Canadians that an American network might buy Canadian media affiliates, whether it’s newspapers or TV stations or TV networks. It would be a giving up of our sovereignty and our identity and that is something that we will simply not accept,” Trudeau said in a press conference on Tuesday.”We’ve made it very clear that defending that cultural exemption is something fundamental to Canadians.”

>Canadian officials have lately adopted an adamantly nationalist stance in trade negotiations, with Canada’s foreign minister Chrystia Freeland pointing out that she is “paid in Canadian dollars.” “We are always going to stand up for the national interest and Canadian values,” Freeland said Friday.

>Before the tournament started, I could not make a case for us winning it, I just wanted to see some signs of improvement. If everyone is honest, I don't think they ever felt that we could get to a semi-final - I certainly didn't.

>But beat Croatia, and England are in the final. It is amazing just to be able to say that, and a great feeling to think about what could happen next.

>England lost in the last 16 in South Africa in 2010 and were out after two group games in Brazil four years ago.

>And to add to the litany of mediocrity, England have never beaten a team higher than them in the Fifa rankings since David Beckham's penalty beat Argentina in Sapporo 16 years ago.

/newbrit/politics #475: Islam shall prevail inshallah Edition

Allā's Messenger, peace and blessings upon him, was constantly harangued by different people including travellers and uncultured Bedouins who did not know the proper way to address or give him the respect and personal space he needs. In one instance, a Bedouin came outside his house and called out "O Muḥammad!" and to come out and talk to me and such and such. Thus a certain verse was revealed. Even the ṣaḥābah would, with good intentions, constantly be asking him questions and Allāh's Messenger (peace and blessings upon him) would typically graciously answer and bestow upon them wisdom. However, of course this sometimes grew tiresome, so he (peace and blessings upon him) declared that they should give ṣadaqah (charitable giving) before asking a question, so they wouldn't be so quick to let their queries fly. In another instance, two of the ṣaḥābah were quarreling over who would command a ghazwah (raid) and their arguments troubled Muhammad so Allāh revealed the verse prohibiting people from raising their voice over the voice of His Messenger. - A Muslim

Each square is a sector of 5 li (something like 2 and a half miles). Orders should refer to each sector by a letter-and-number code, eg the top left village is in sector E6)

dark grey is mountainous

light grey is hilly

tan is desert

yellow-green is plains

yellow is farms

green is forest

brown is built up areas

light blue is river

burgundy is a fortified area

brown lines through sectors are roads

Jiaocheng Province, until today a quiet backwater able to avoid the worst of the fighting. The Beishan mountain range curls around the province, sheltering desert scrubland in it's lee. At the centre, the city (under control of the local government Yamen) oversees extensive farmland and villages. The river is fordable from the villages, but otherwise commanders must rely on riverine transport.

The goal for a warlord or coalition of warlords is to occupy the city and it's villages by diplomacy or force. The victor will gain a large supply and recruitment base for the next campaign (if a coalition is victorious, the bonus will be reduced and shared between the winners).

HOW TO BEGIN

0. Post here declaring your participation, if you like give some fluff about it (eg an elite unit). You MUST include a name and an identifying colour.

1. Use the points list below to construct an army

2. Secretly communicate to me your entry point onto the map and your order of battle (the army list and the order in which divisions enter the map)

3. Recieve your scout reports and give your first order.

Mixed results for Conservatives and Labour in England local elections

>Labour makes gains but falls short in key areas, while Tories see 1% swing outside London

>Labour has made some gains in local elections across England, but after a mixed night of results the party’s hopes of taking control of some key target councils, notably in London, were dashed

>overall, in the first major test of voter opinion since last year’s general election, the main parties remained deadlocked – a result more likely to buoy Theresa May, who at one point had faced predictions of a leadership challenge if the local polls had gone badly for her

Tories snatch key target Barnet Council from under Labour's nose

>the Conservatives have won control of Barnet Council in north London as voters appeared to punish Labour for the antisemitism controversy

>a defeated Labour councillor in West Hendon, where the Conservatives took all three seats, said that the party's inability with the issue of antisemitism cost them victory in Barnet

>Adam Langleben, who also sits on the national executive committee of Jewish Labour, told the Guardian: "Every Jewish Labour household we visited, people said, “not this time"

The local elections show a divided Britain: Labour and the Tories are trapped in a stalemate

>Britain has entered a new era of polarised politics. Neither the Conservatives nor Labour are able to revive the hegemony they once enjoyed

>it is the governing party, however, who have most cause for cheer; after multiple political scandals and nearly a decade of austerity, they have nevertheless gained seats

>on both a local and a national level, Labour is not making the gains an opposition needs to be confident of winning power, but nor are the Conservatives close to recovering their squandered majority

Corbyn has little to celebrate in Britain's local elections

>Britain’s main political parties all made gains in local council elections, benefiting from the collapse of the U.K. Independence Party, in results that saw Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour continue to struggle outside London

>“Labour hasn’t made anything like the expected gains in terms of seats, and is actually going backwards slightly on the national vote share,” said Matt Singh of NumberCruncherPolitics, “these aren’t the results of a party that’s about to storm the next general election"

>the government has said it’s essential that the quality and design of new housing is addressed. Recent research shows that more than 7 out of 10 people would support new residential development if buildings are well-designed and in keeping with their local area

Property prices in regional UK cities continue to outpace London

>the “scarcity” of property in key regional cities such as Manchester is also supporting “above average capital growth”

>according to the latest index from HomeTrack, which analyses 20 cities across the country, key regional locations continue to post the sharpest increases in average property prices annually, with prices in Edinburgh having increased by 8.1% in the 12 months to March 2018, followed by Nottingham (8%) and Manchester (7.4%)

>despite being one of the UK’s fastest growing economies and populations, property supply in Manchester cannot keep up with demand, with figures suggesting its population is growing at 15 times the rate new homes are currently being built at, with residential housing delivery in Manchester likely to meet just 25% of annual demand based on current projections

Housing associations can end our over-reliance on a small group of big builders

>Letwin suggests that the main reason build-out rates are so slow is a system that allows a developer-led preoccupation with ensuring that the absorption rate maintains the market price and profit margin

Farming must continue 'uninterrupted'

>elaborating on his motion for a constitutional amendment to allow expropriation without compensation, EFF leader Julius Malema said on Wednesday that farmers should be able to continue to work their land uninterrupted, but that those parts that lay idle should be redistributed by the state

>he was answering questions by journalists outside of the party's public health care campaign launch at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital in Soweto, following his motion in the National Assembly on Tuesday

>"if you are a farmer and you have lost ownership of the land to the state, then the portion of the farm you are using to produce whatever you are producing should continue uninterrupted. [But] idling parts of the farm …should be reallocated to someone else who will use it for production," he said

>once pegged to the country’s vast gold reserves, the rand used to be 2:1 to the pound and nearly as strong as the dollar until a generation ago. Today, however, it seems pegged to the anxiety of post-apartheid South Africa

>"no one is going to lose his or her house, no one is going to lose his or her flat, no one is going to lose his or her factory or industry," Julius Malema, who leads the far-left Economic Freedom Fighters party, said immediately following the vote. "All we are saying is they will not have the ownership of the land, they will have a lease, depending on what is the arrangement, particularly as it relates to the outcome of the Constitutional review process."
