UK govt says ‘every effort was made’ to destroy papers naming Afghan embassy workers, amid anger over 'data protection blunder'

In a frantic rush to abandon their embassy, British diplomatic staff in Kabul left papers strewn around, some of which detailed the names and contacts of local embassy staff still in Afghanistan, the Times has reported.

On Thursday evening, the Times claimed that its journalists had found papers identifying Afghan staff at the British diplomatic mission, as well as job applicants, inside the now-abandoned Kabul embassy. The papers were found by the reporters as Taliban troops patrolled the building and posed with abandoned treasures.

According to the Times, documents found in the embassy on Tuesday identified seven Afghans. Phone calls to the numbers detailed on the papers revealed that some of them and their families remained in the war-torn country, on the wrong side of the Kabul airport fence.

The story has shocked many, with some asking how incompetent the Foreign Office must be to put its own Afghan staff at risk of reprisals from the Taliban regime.

BBC licence fee ‘in terminal decline because more will refuse to pay’

The BBC licence fee is in terminal decline because increasing numbers of people will refuse to pay it, the media minister has said.

There are currently 24.8 million licences in force, according to BBC figures, with that figure having stood at 25.8 million two years ago.

Moreover, around 260,000 over-75s contacted by TV Licensing have yet to arrange payment.

John Whittingdale, the minister for media and data, said he expected the downward trend to continue each year.

Make a run for the border... if you think you can make it there alive: UK tells stranded Afghans NOT to come to the airport as troops begin to pack up and leave thousands behind after Joe Biden's betrayal

The UK last night told its Afghan allies who are still trying to get out of Afghanistan to head for the border rather than attempt to get into Kabul airport where US and British forces are winding down their operations.

As evacuation efforts entered their final hours, Defence Secretary Ben Wallace appeared to signal in a briefing to MPs that there are few places left on British planes.

There are also warnings of an increased terror risk from jihadists ISIS-K, with US officials last night saying there was a 'very real risk' of an attack by the terror group who are the Taliban's rivals. .

Covid infection protection waning in double jabbed

Researchers say they are seeing some waning of protection against Covid infections in double-jabbed people.

The real-world study includes data on positive Covid PCR test results between May and July 2021 among more than a million people who had received two doses of Pfizer or AstraZeneca vaccine.

Protection after two shots of Pfizer decreased from 88% at one month to 74% at five to six months.

For AstraZeneca, the fall was from 77% to 67% at four to five months.

Waning protection is to be expected, say experts.

Although some breakthrough infections may be happening, vaccines are still doing a very good job at protecting people against severe Covid illness and deaths.

BOMBSHELL UK data destroys entire premise for vaccine push

This is an absolute game-changer.

The UK government just reported the following data, tucked away in their report on variants of concern:

Less than a third of delta variant deaths are in the unvaccinated.

Let me say that another way - two-thirds of Delta deaths in the UK are in the jabbed.

To be specific:

From the 1st of February to the 2nd of August, the UK recorded 742 Delta deaths (yes, the dreaded Delta has not taken that much life).

Out of the 742 deaths, 402 were fully vaccinated. 79 had received one shot. Only 253 were unvaccinated.

#Together: 200 British Business, Faith, and Political Leaders Launch Campaign Against Vaccine Passports

A group of over 200 businesses, faith, and political leaders in Britain have joined with doctors and healthcare staff to denounce any imposition of vaccine passports.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Reclaim and Reform (formerly the Brexit Party) parties, alongside NHS staff, entrepreneurs, business leaders, sports professionals, media personalities, musicians set out the ‘Together Declaration’, which states that the introduction of vaccine passports or any form of digital identification would compromise the rights and freedoms of the British people.

In a press conference held in London on Wednesday afternoon, bar owner and nightlife lobbyist Alan Miller said that he joined the campaign because “the idea that we have a discriminatory two-tiered society where we have security guards asking people for some of the most sensitive information was just too much.”

‘Afghan Roulette’ UK, France Accidentally Evacuate Security Risk Individuals

The French government admitted on Monday that it has repatriated an Afghani man and his four relatives despite being aware of intelligence that he was connected to the Taliban, with similar security failures witnessed in the UK.

As nations across Europe grapple with increased security concerns over the evacuation of asylum seekers from Afghanistan following President Joe Biden’s disastrous military withdrawal from the country, the French government has been accused of helping the Taliban establish a “fifth column” in the nation.

On Monday, French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin admitted: “Even if this person greatly assisted in the evacuation of the French embassy, ??we believe that he may be linked to the Taliban.”

Demonstrators Occupy London News Headquarters Over Pandemic Coverage

A group of demonstrators occupied the entrance of the headquarters of ITV News and Channel 4 News in London, claiming that the media are misinforming people about vaccines and the pandemic.

Police were called to the ITN production studios in central London on Aug. 23, according to the Met Police, after a group “unlawfully gained access to the building.”

Two hours later the protesters had left, according to police.

Estimates suggest there were about 100 people in the group.

They appear to be part of a larger group of protesters in the area.

Boris Johnson to Host G7 Meeting in Attempt to Hammer Out Joint Evacuation Plan From Afghanistan

On Sunday, UK Defence Secretary Ben Wallace stated that the evacuation was "down to hours, not weeks", while the Taliban* warned that "there would be consequences" if the Kabul airlift is extended into next month.

Later on Tuesday, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, as chair of the G7 is due to host an emergency meeting on Afghanistan, where a final decision on a possible extension of the Kabul evacuation operation is expected to be taken.

The Guardian has quoted unnamed sources as saying that G7 members "will be under pressure to present a united front" on the evacuation-related issues and those pertaining to official recognition of the Taliban.

Twitter cries 'slave labour!' as UK meat industry seeks to employ prisoners to plug shortage

Thousands of working-class jobs in the UK remain unfilled, so corporations want to tap more of a particular source of labour – involuntary residents of Her Majesty's prisons. Some see it as a throwback to chain gangs of old.

On Monday, a leading association of the British meat industry met government officials to ask for greater scope to employ inmates eligible under the Release On Temporary Licence (ROTL) programme. It grants low-risk prisoners short day leaves for various reasons, including to work paid or unpaid jobs.

The Association of Independent Meat Suppliers (AIMS) currently has about 14,000 job vacancies and hopes that the Ministry of Justice can help fill some of them. Tony Goodger, an AIMS spokesman, told the BBC that association members have experience employing inmates under ROTL and were pleased with the experience, finding such workers "well behaved, hard-working, and willing to learn".

Deadline extension for Britons awaiting evac from Kabul airport is ‘unlikely’ following Taliban warnings – UK defence chief

As the August 31 withdrawal deadline draws closer, the UK’s secretary of state for defence has stated that an extended evacuation period is “unlikely” amid growing security risks after Taliban warnings on not observing this date.

Speaking on Tuesday to Sky news, Britain’s Secretary of State for Defence Secretary Ben Wallace cast doubt on whether a withdrawal of troops from Kabul past the August 31 is on the cards, “not only because of what the Taliban has said but also … the public statements of President Biden, I think it is unlikely.” However, the defence secretary stated that it was worth trying.

Wallace also stated that as the deadline approaches “the security risk goes up, it gets more and more dangerous”, explaining that "other terrorist groups like ISIS would like to be seen taking credit [and] would like to be seen chasing the West out of Afghanistan”.

WATCH 50+ arrests made after Extinction Rebellion protest shuts down London street

Dozens of environmental activists with Extinction Rebellion were arrested after taking to the streets of London for a major protest, chaining themselves to objects – and each other – to shut down a busy junction in the city.

The environmentalist group gathered near London’s Trafalgar Square on Monday, where protesters attempted to shut down a roundabout, some chaining themselves to a pink, four-meter tall structure carrying the words “Come to the table.” Others were seen crawling under cars in an effort to block the road.

The demonstration came soon after Extinction Rebellion declared a new protest campaign it dubbed “the Impossible Rebellion,” saying it plans to hold “disruptive actions” across London for two weeks straight, including “occupations” of public spaces.

“Everyone’s really excited for the next two weeks,” one protester told local media. “We’re looking forward to disrupting London in general.”

UK Minister for European Neighbourhood: We believe Crimea Platform to become important tool that will bring Russia to justice

British Minister for European Neighbourhood and the Americas Wendy Morton expressed hope that the Crimea Platform will become an important tool that will bring Russia to justice.

Morton said at the inaugural summit of the Crimea Platform in Kyiv on Monday that they believe that Russia's behavior in Crimea remains hostile and irresponsible. This is the same as what it is doing in eastern Ukraine with absolute disrespect for international law, and they believe that the Crimea Platform will become an important tool that will bring Russia to justice.

She stressed that the UK is ready to ensure the success of the Crimea Platform.

We declare our solidarity with all Ukrainians: from West to East of the country, to the last piece of land in the very south of the Crimean peninsula. Crimea is Ukraine, Morton said.

Children as young as 10 are having their sex changed on their medical records sparking fears that doctors could misdiagnose patients

Children under ten are having their sex changed on medical records in a move that an expert says could put their health at risk.

A paediatrician has warned that routine tests could be wrongly interpreted if doctors do not know the birth sex of their patient.

She told The Mail on Sunday she had seen half a dozen young people, aged from under ten to their mid-teens, given a new name and gender on official health documents.

In some cases, they were given a new NHS number, meaning that their original records had been replaced with ones that did not mention their birth sex.

The children’s doctor, who asked to be anonymous, said: ‘Recording if someone is male or female is vital in their medical care. Without this information, all sorts of misdiagnosis could take place.’

After catastrophic US retreat from Afghanistan, Britain will have to turn to Russia & China for 'influence' over Taliban, UK says

As American troops continue their withdrawal from Kabul, British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has admitted that London will now have to depend on Moscow and Beijing for support if it wants to do deals with the Taliban in future.

Speaking as part of an interview with the Sunday Telegraph published over the weekend, the UK's top diplomat acknowledged that his country and its allies have limited sway with Afghanistan and would have to turn to other nations when it comes to forming ties with the new government.

"We're going to have to bring in countries with a potentially moderating influence like Russia and China, however uncomfortable that is," Raab said. Working in partnership with a broader range of partners, he said, was the only way that Britain could exert a "moderating influence" on the Taliban.

‘Stone Adulterers’: Islamist Hate Preacher Anjem Choudary Calls on Taliban to Enforce Strict Sharia

Radical Islamist hate preacher Anjem Choudary has called for the Taliban to go full throttle in imposing Sharia law in Afghanistan by imposing an “infidel tax” on foreigners and stoning adulterers, among other extreme forms of ‘justice’.

The UK’s most infamous hate cleric had his ban on public speaking lifted earlier this year, which was imposed on Choudary upon his release from prison. The notorious preachers hadserved less than half of his five-and-a-half-year sentence for supporting the so-called Islamic State.

While Choudary has been banned for hate speech by Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp he has reportedly been using the encrypted Russian messaging app Telegram to spread his Islamist propaganda.

PERMANENT TYRANNY: Scottish government wants emergency COVID-19 powers to become permanent

The Scottish government has made public a set of proposals to make some coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency powers permanent, including the ability to impose a lockdown.

Under current emergency powers granted to the incumbent Scottish Nationalist Party (SNP), the government is able to enact temporary laws forcing businesses and educational establishments to close their doors, as well as release prisoners from incarceration early if ministers deem the cause necessary.

The government proposed that Scottish ministers should be given “the same powers to protect the people of Scotland from any incidence or spread of infection or contamination, which presents or could present significant harm to human health in Scotland, not just COVID.”

UK, France Sending in Troops to Rescue Citizens While US Relies on Taliban for Safe Passage of Americans

While other countries rescue their citizens from the Taliban-controlled country of Afghanistan, President Joe Biden’s military has decided to, instead, negotiate with terrorists.

The Kabul airport has been secured by U.S. forces, but for American citizens left outside its perimeter, it doesn’t appear that a rescue is coming any time soon.

Taliban soldiers quickly surrounded and secured the perimeter of the airport and are reportedly blocking the entrance from both U.S. residents and eligible Afghans.

UK after restaging its occupation of Yemen: Expert

A Yemeni expert says the United Kingdom’s recent decision to move troops to Yemen under a false pretext actually seeks to return the British occupation to the impoverished country.

London has sent over the forces under the pretext of trying to find the alleged perpetrators behind a reported attack on an Israeli tanker off the Omani coast on July 29, which the West alleges originated from Yemen.

Watch a live broadcast from London, UK, where citizens are gathering on Saturday, 21 August, to express their support to the people of Afghanistan.

The rally is being held under the slogan "Free Afghanistan, Sanction Pakistan", referring to the alleged support Islamabad has been providing to the Taliban, which has established control over Afghanistan.

Last Sunday, the Taliban* took control of the capital Kabul and nearly all other provinces of the country. Afghan President Ashraf Ghani fled to the United Arab Emirates, while the Taliban declared the 20-year war was over and announced its plans to establish the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.

UK Defence Sec Defends Top General Claiming Taliban ‘Want an Afghanistan Inclusive for All’

Britain’s Defence Secretary has defended General Sir Nick Carter, Chief of the Defence Staff, after he claimed that the Taliban are honourable “country boys” who “want an Afghanistan that is inclusive for all”.

Carter, the professional head of the British armed forces, put himself in front of the media on August 18th to suggest that the Taliban, responsible for the lion’s share of the 457 fatalities and 616 “serious or very serious casualties” among British military and civilian personnel in Afghanistan, should not necessarily be described as the “enemy”.

“I think people need to understand what the Taliban actually are,” Carter told Kay Burley, a leading anchor for Comcast’s Sky News.

“And of course, what they actually are are a disparate collection of tribespeople… they’re country boys,” he said of the Islamic fundamentalists.

‘Is it anti-vax to be concerned?’: Magazine editor reports changes to period after Covid jab, the latest in over 30,000 UK women

At least 30,304 British women have disclosed changes to their menstrual cycle after getting vaccinated against Covid-19. An editor for The Spectator is one of the most recently affected, and says many more are afraid to come out.

Lara Prendergast, an executive editor at London's Spectator magazine, raised some concerning questions in a column on Thursday after reporting that she had been affected since receiving her first Pfizer dose in May.

Noting that it is an “uncomfortable” and sensitive topic to discuss – indicating that the true number of women with period-related vaccine side effects could be far greater than the 30,304 documented – Prendergast revealed that her cycle has not been right since she was vaccinated months ago.

The BBC Are A Disgrace

Recently the Jeremy Vine show on BBC Radio 2 received a call from John in Manchester who Vine and the BBC labelled as an “antivaxxer.” John’s conversation with Vine was revealing.

Not necessarily for the content, although John made some good points, but because it exposed the BBC for what they are: an agenda driven propaganda organisation.

Similar calls from Bristol based Nigel Jones to BBC Sounds’ Any Answers and a caller from Sussex to Sarah Gorrel’s BBC Radio Sussex phone in, exposed exactly the same bias from the BBC. This isn’t one or two talking heads going off script. It is corporate policy.

In all three cases, any questioning of the COVID 19 vaccines by the callers was met with the same response. Belligerent denial, logical fallacies, a refusal to rationally debate the evidence and, relatively swiftly, cutting them off.

Just 1 in every 1.7 million children have died with Covid-19 in 18 months, whilst 1 in 9 children suffered a serious adverse reaction to the Covid-19 vaccine in the Clinical Trial

The Pfizer Covid-19 injection has been given emergency use authorisation to be used in children over the age of 12 in the UK by the MHRA, whilst the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) have decided that vulnerable children over the age of 12 and all 16 and 17 year olds should be offered the Pfizer jab. Both authorities claim that their decision is based on the benefits outweighing any potential risks.

If this is the case, then the MHRA and JCVI need to explain how they came to this conclusion when just 1 in every 1.7 million children have died with Covid-19 in 18 months, whilst 1 in every 9 children suffered a serious adverse reaction to the Pfizer vaccine in the small and short clinical trial which left them unable to perform daily activities.

Raab call NEVER happened: Foreign Secretary's job hangs by a thread after government admits truth about crucial call to save Afghan translators' lives that they claimed was delegated to a junior minister

Dominic Raab's job was hanging by a thread last night as it emerged the crucial phone call that was delegated to a junior minister never took place.

Tory MPs yesterday joined a ferocious backlash against the Foreign Secretary over his failure to intervene while on holiday to help airlift translators out of Afghanistan. The Mail revealed yesterday that Mr Raab had been advised by officials to interrupt his luxury trip to Crete on Friday to urgently contact his Afghan counterpart.

The Foreign Secretary, however, failed to make the call and it was 'delegated' to the duty Foreign Office minister Lord Goldsmith. It was thought the telephone conversation had then taken place the following day.

Britain’s delusions that it could take on the Taliban alone are ludicrous - what are our empire-nostalgic MPs smoking?

Politicians think that the answer to 20 years of military failure in Afghanistan is, er, more war – and that we should send troops back without US support. Given we couldn’t even hold Helmand last time, this is just fantasy.

On Wednesday the British parliament reconvened in an emergency session to allow MPs to vent their spleen over the situation in Afghanistan. It was a scene of self-righteous and delusional posturing and indignation over why the UK had allowed the collapse of the Kabul government and had been too subservient in following the United States.

No, not a session of regret, remorse and acceptance that Britain has wasted 20 years in another pointless conflict, but largely one promulgating the notion that “more war” was the answer to the Afghan ‘problem’, even though two decades of fighting had achieved precisely nothing, save death and defeat. And this new war is apparently to be conducted independent of the US.

UK‘s medicine regulator receives funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation that pushes vaccines and depopulation

The UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, or MHRA, is meant to be a neutral body that is responsible for making sure that the medicine and medical devices used in the country are acceptably safe.

However, there are serious questions about the agency’s impartiality because they receive significant funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in what can only be considered a major conflict of interest. The foundation holds major shares in COVID-19 vaccine developers Pfizer and BioNTech.

Perhaps this explains why the Pfizer and BioNTech vaccine was the first one to be authorized for use in children aged 12 and over back in June and remained the only one available to this age group until Moderna’s vaccine was approved this week.

Thousands of Americans trapped in the city were again advised by the US embassy that it cannot protect them if they attempt to get to the airport, and even if they make it, they might not be able to get on a plane out of there:

Glaxo reveals promising lab results for new British-made vaccine that could target multiple Covid variants – with 50m doses on order from the UK

British drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline said its new Covid vaccine has produced good results in initial laboratory tests, with human trials expected to begin this year and ministers set to order up to 50 million doses of the jab.

The mRNA technology at the heart of the vaccine could be used to create a so-called multivalent jab that would be designed to protect against several Covid variants, GSK and German partner CureVac said.

A first version of the vaccine developed by the German company had failed in large-scale trials. The latest trials were conducted in collaboration with Harvard and involved macaque monkeys being jabbed with either the original vaccine or a new version, known as CV2CoV.

Britain fears US forces may pull out of Kabul airport within days

Britain fears US forces may pull out of Kabul international airport within days, putting it at risk of closure and raising concerns over the emergency airlift of thousands of people from Afghanistan.

Whitehall and security sources said they could not guarantee how long the US would keep its contingent of 6,000 troops on the ground and cautioned that the UK could not continue the rescue without their presence. They also indicated Britain was not engaging with the Taliban directly over security or other issues after the militant group seized the Afghan capital.

The Guardian has learned that some in government, however, believe there is a shift by UK ministers and the military towards dealing directly with the Taliban and legitimising their role – a position that would anger those who believe they have not changed.

Dr Vernon Coleman – “My challenge to Jeremy Vine at the BBC”

Let me come on your radio show and debate the covid-19 experimental jab with you. I will explain to you the facts about covid-19 and the reason why the experimental covid vaccine is not safe and doesn’t do what most people think it does. I will also explain why I believe the BBC is the most dishonest media organisation in the world.

The only stipulation is that the debate must be live. Vine can have as many experts advising him as he can fit into his studio. I will be alone.

Why should Vine debate with me?

As a qualified doctor and former GP who has made numerous TV and radio programmes and written numerous bestselling books on medical topics (including vaccination) I would, a few years ago, have been one of the first ‘medical experts’ consulted by the BBC.

But since early 2020 I am not aware of any critic of the covid fraud being allowed airtime on any BBC programme.

UK Gov't Pledge to Resettle 20,000 Afghans Slammed as ‘Not Meeting the Scale of the Challenge’

The UK Parliament is being recalled from summer recess for Wednesday’s debate on a response to the situation in Afghanistan after the Taliban capitalized on the withdrawal of US and NATO troops to carry out a lightning-fast advance. As the Islamist militant group entered the capital Kabul, Western nations stepped up evacuations from the country.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has unveiled the government’s plans to take in up to 20,000 vulnerable Afghans in the long-term as part of a resettlement plan following the takeover of the South Asian country by the Taliban* militant group.

The government will relocate up to 5,000 Afghans in the UK in the first year, according to the scheme, with women, girls, religious and other minorities deemed to be most at risk of human rights abuses given priority, according to Sky News.

No wonder the defence secretary is in tears – Afghanistan is the UK’s biggest military humiliation since Suez

Anthony Eden was forced out of Downing Street over the military debacle in Egypt 65 years ago, so will Boris Johnson lose his premiership over this equally embarrassing rout? He should...

As the Taliban reasserts its dominance over Afghanistan, and the West’s unseemly scuttle continues, the UK is hastily attempting to get its citizens out of the capital. It is not just a capitulation to the forces of extreme Islamism – it is a national embarrassment.

Around 4,000 British nationals and Afghans eligible to claim refuge in the UK are trying to flee Kabul. Some 600 of our highly skilled and brave Parachute Regiment have been deployed to get out as many people as they can. Yet it is clear now that not all of them will be successful in their attempts to leave.

BBC Gets Called Out "LIVE" on Jeremy Vine show for Biased Propaganda

The media are currently busy will promoting the message of failed vaxxers who regret their decision of not getting vaxxed. It is Interesting see that Main Stream Media (MSM) haven't uttered a word about the thousands that have possibly died from the Vaxx. Not a miserable word. Not one. Lets continue with the story of John shall we ....

Once on the show, John proceeded to call out the BBC on their biased propaganda. He went on to tell Jeremy about the 1,517 people who have died from the vaccine in the UK - according to the data from the Yellow Card reporting system and still the BBC haven't reported a single death. Investigative journalism at its best! Jeremy goes on to refute the claims and says that 60,000 lives have been saved. As we know this is complete fiction.

Afghanistan: Boris Johnson urges Western nations not to ‘prematurely recognise’ Taliban regime

Boris Johnson has urged other Western nations not to “prematurely recognise” the Taliban regime in Afghanistan, as he denied its sudden takeover is a surprise.

After chairing an emergency meeting, the prime minister said his priority is to get remaining UK nationals – and Afghans who have helped its mission – out of the war-torn country “in the next few days”.

But he also asked foreign capitals to hold back from recognising the likely new Taliban-led government in Kabul until after discussions at the United Nations and Nato this week.

“We don’t want anybody bilaterally recognising the Taliban,” Mr Johnson said, speaking in Downing Street.

“We want a united position amongst all the like-minded, as far as we can get one, so that we do whatever we can to prevent Afghanistan lapsing back into being a breeding ground for terror.”

And yet British diplomats have remained in Kabul!

Dominic Raab was ON HOLIDAY as Taliban encircled Afghan capital, reports say, while UK Ambassador said to be remaining in Kabul

UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab was on vacation as the Taliban closed in on Kabul, British media reports. Raab has been forced to wrap up his holidays, as PM Boris Johnson has called an urgent meeting on events in Afghanistan.

Raab flew back to Britain on Sunday, days after it became clear that the situation on the ground in Afghanistan was rapidly evolving and the fall of Kabul was only a matter of time. Taliban militants entered the country’s capital on Sunday, while Afghan President Ashraf Ghani fled the country.

It was not immediately clear where the top UK diplomat was vacationing while the pro-Western Afghan government effectively fell apart. The Foreign Office refused to disclose the minister’s holiday destination to media.

At the same time, the diplomatic service said that the British envoy in Afghanistan was at his working place and the mission continues to operate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That means that Britain will recognize the new government.

Boris to Recall Parliament as Afghanistan Withdrawal Branded Biggest Blunder ‘Since Suez’

Prime Minister Boris Johnson will reportedly recall Parliament in order to debate the crisis in Afghanistan, which has been described as the biggest foreign policy blunder “since Suez”.

Following Taliban forces taking over many cities throughout Afghanistan and entering the capital of Kabul on Sunday morning, Boris Johnson will recall parliamentarians from their summer recess for at least one day this week to debate the situation in Afghanistan.

“The Prime Minister is expected to recall Parliament this week to discuss the situation in Afghanistan. The timing is to be confirmed with the Speaker,” a Number 10 Downing Street source told The Guardian.

‘West has done what it’s done’: UK defence secretary breaks down as he explains some people ‘won’t get back’ from Afghanistan

British Defence Secretary Ben Wallace was visibly distraught and appeared to choke back tears as he was explaining that his government will likely not be able to evacuate everyone it wants to from Taliban-seized Kabul.

Wallace spoke to LBC on Monday to describe the ongoing effort to fly out holders of British passports and allied Afghan citizens from Kabul International Airport. The Afghan capital was seized on Sunday by Taliban fighters, but the airport remained under control of US forces guarding it for the evacuation effort.

Lead elements of the British Army’s 16 Air Assault Brigade are on the ground working with the Americans to ensure that as many people that London wants to bring out of Afghanistan can do so as possible.

Told yer – Covid booster shots will ‘be obligatory for trips abroad and care home staff’ – as millions are set to be offered a third jab from September. You want to keep your ‘vaccine passport’? Then you must keep being jabbed.

Booster jabs are set to be compulsory for travel abroad and care home staff in plans under discussion by Ministers.

A source close to the talks about Covid certification told The Mail on Sunday: ‘The assumption is that you will be required to have the most up-to-date health passport.

‘So if the advice is to have a booster six months after your second jab, then that is what you’ll need.’

British mother demands apology from government after police terrorized “petrified” daughter who was self-isolating for covid

A 45-year-old mother is demanding an apology from the British government after police officers swarmed her home and terrorized her 12-year-old daughter, who was self-isolating for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19).

According to reports, officers visited the home of Kathryn Crook in Middleton, Greater Manchester, to check up on Charlotte, who was obediently distancing from society after testing “positive” for the Chinese Virus.

The girl became “petrified,” her mother says, after police officers engaged in an “inappropriate and heavy-handed” health check to make sure she was in full compliance with the government’s Fauci Flu dictates. Her mother is now livid, calling the health check “overkill.”

Lobbying in Britain's Conservative Party illustrates the dark ties to the Gulf alliances with Israel

When the extent of former British Prime Minister David Cameron's involvement in lobbying for the investment company Greensill Capital was revealed by the BBC's "Panorama" programme this week, the revelations went far beyond his role in the scandal. It goes back years but the investigation was only launched properly earlier this year.

In short, Cameron was reported to have lobbied ministers and senior civil servants to get the Bank of England to invest $10 billion of British taxpayers' money in Greensill's loans. Claiming that the investment would help British businesses to stay on their feet during the Covid-19 pandemic, Cameron's lobbying was unsuccessful until June 2020, when the government finally approved Greensill as a lender under a scheme to help companies and businesses.

Britain's Wealthiest Plutocrats Are Largely Foreign-Born and Jewish

The United Kingdom, the nation with the most billionaires per capita, is governed by a largely foreign, heavily Jewish plutocracy.

Figures such as Richard Branson are commonly associated with British wealth, but his net worth pales in comparison to these individuals and families.

A Sky News report on the wealthiest British citizens in 2021 reveals that individuals of Jewish ancestry, who make up a mere 1.7% of the UK’s population, are wildly overrepresented among the richest top 10.

Topping the list is media and music mogul Sir Lenoard Blavatnik, who now controls a £23 billion Pound fortune. Blavatnik is an international Jew who was born in the Ukraine and holds both American and UK citizenship. He influences politics in both countries. Blavatnik helps bankroll both the Conservative Party (also known as the Tories) in London and the neo-conservative wing of the Republican Party in America.

Covid: Record your cough to help improve detection, says government

People who have recently taken a Covid test are being asked to record a cough on their smartphone or computer as part of a drive to improve detection rates.

The government also wants people to provide short voice and breathing sound samples as it looks at developing an app for wider use.

US researchers have already created an algorithm that detects Covid from coughs with a near-100% accuracy rate.

While British holidaymakers continue to face uncertainty and headaches over returning from foreign vacations, UN globalists arriving for a climate conference in Scotland won’t face the same COVID-19 restrictions.

For months, Brits have been hesitant to travel due to onerous quarantine rules which enforce self-isolation upon return from different destinations.

This was exacerbated by the government constantly changing which countries were on the green, amber, amber-plus and red lists – leaving many holidaymakers in limbo stranded abroad.

UK citizens returning home from red list countries, many of which are located in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, have to undergo a brutally enforced quarantine in specially designated prison-like hotels at their own expense.

Immediately after covid restrictions were lifted in the UK, cases fell by 40 percent

“Daily #COVID cases are down 40% in U.K. since ‘Freedom Day’ when the government lifted restrictions,” one person tweeted. “This isn’t what experts predicted.”

“Neil Ferguson said it was ‘almost inevitable’ cases would increase 100+%. MPs called it ‘reckless.’ @Reuters & @AP decried a ‘surge’ on Day 1.”

As of August 8, the seven-day rolling average of new Chinese Virus cases is around 27,000, a mere fraction of what Ferguson and the mainstream media predicted.

BBC correspondent Sarah Rainsford told to leave Moscow in reciprocal move protesting British sanctions against Russians – reports

A British foreign correspondent working for the BBC in Moscow has been told her visa will not be renewed she must now leave the country, in a move that comes as relations between the two countries worsen amid a diplomatic rift.

A Foreign Ministry official revealed on Friday that Sarah Rainsford, a reporter for the state-funded broadcaster’s Russia bureau, had been denied permission to remain in the country and would have to depart before the end of the month, Bloomberg reports.

Rainsford’s right to remain in the country is due to expire on August 31, and an application for a new visa is said to have been rejected.

The BBC has not responded to media requests and the Russian Foreign Ministry has declined to comment.

UK bid to deport 50 paedophiles, killers and rapists to Jamaica fails as ‘lefty’ lawyers’ last-ditch appeals expose asylum farce

Human rights lawyers, shouty politicians and race grifters have derailed efforts to deport Jamaican criminals from the UK with last-minute legal appeals, cries of racism and insulting comparisons to the Windrush scandal.

No one would disagree that the Windrush scandal was a shameful episode in the UK government’s history but to equate it with the deportation of convicted felons to Jamaica is plain stupid.

Threatening lifelong British citizens with deportation, claiming they were in the UK illegally because of a lack of official paperwork is a nightmare worthy of Kafka, especially for the 83 people sent packing. Deporting serious criminals to their home countries so they no longer pose a threat to UK society or are a drain on taxpayers is quite something else.

Covid tests' 2,000% profit margin: Government-approved providers are charging travellers up to 20 TIMES the 'fair price' of £20 for PCR swabs

British holidaymakers could be paying 20 times more than the 'fair' price for PCR Covid tests, a top scientist has claimed.

A price in the region of £20 would be reasonable for the swabs according to Professor Stephen Bustin, a world-renowned expert on PCR at Anglia Ruskin University.

But the most expensive test listed on the Government's website of approved providers costs £400. On average, British travellers have to fork out £92 per test.

The UK is experiencing a rise in Covid-19 deaths despite it being summer and 75% of adults being vaccinated, but it isn’t the unvaccinated that are dying…

Out of the nation’s 68 million people, more than 47 million have received at least a single dose, and over 39 million have been fully vaccinated as of the 10th August 2021.

Yet for some peculiar reason more people are dying with Covid-19 now than people who were dying at the same time last year when there was no experimental injection on offer. On the 10th August 2021 the UK confirmed that there had been 146 alleged Covid-19 deaths, with the 7-day average being 88.9 deaths per day.

However rewind precisely one year and the UK confirmed that there had been 18 alleged Covid-19 deaths on the 10th August 2020, with the 7-day average being 12.7 deaths per day.

‘Free Assange’: Corbyn joins protesters demanding release of Assange as US extradition appeal reaches London’s High Court

Protesters, including former opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn, have demanded the release of Julian Assange outside London’s High Court as a preliminary hearing concerning a US appeal to extradite the WikiLeaks co-founder begins.
Scores gathered outside the Royal Courts of Justice in central London on Wednesday morning as a legal challenge made by the US government reached Britain’s top magistrates. The appeal looks to overturn a January ruling which stated that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange could not be extradited to the US.

Former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was among those present outside the court. He described Assange as a “great, fearless journalist” and demanded his freedom, adding that he and the other protesters would return time and time again to continue making their calls.

Corbyn said that people should always highlight the truth and that our freedoms come from people who have done this.

UK Transport Minister Says Vaccines Will Be Needed For Travel "Forevermore"

UK transport minister Grant Shapps says that countries will demand full vaccination “forevermore” and that young people “won’t be able to leave the country” without being double jabbed.

Shapps made the comments during an appearance on BBC Radio 4’s Today show.

“I think double vaccination, full vaccination, is going to be a feature forevermore and most countries, probably all countries, will require full vaccination in order for you to enter,” said the minister.

“It’s important to understand that there are simply going to be things that you will not be able to do unless you’re double-vaccinated or have a medical reason not to be, including going abroad,” he added.

The evil in our midst

Sarah Hussein, 31, was severely injured from burns when she was found ablaze on East Street, Bury, at about 19:30 BST on 31 July and died later in hospital. Locals had run to help her and wrapped her in a wet duvet. Three men, aged 24, 26 and 34, who were arrested have been bailed pending further inquiries, police said. It has all the hallmarks of a so-called honour killing. Typically, neither police nor the media is elaborating. We can fill in the blanks.

Meanwhile, yesterday, Seven men were found guilty of murdering a law student, Aya Hachem, in Blackburn last year after a longstanding feud between two tyre firm owners. Hachem, 19, who was fatally shot from a passing car as she bought groceries near her home in Blackburn on 17 May 2020, was not the intended victim. The bullet was intended for the owner of Quickshine Tyres, Pachah Khan, but the shot missed, hitting the student.

Risk of riots in UK 'higher than ever', Labour warns

The risk of a repeat of riots that scarred London and other major cities ten years ago is “higher than ever”, as the government has failed to tackle the causes of the violence, Labour party has said.

The party issued a report on Thursday, warning that the country remained a “tinderbox”, and that the amount of "forgotten families" which many of the young people involved came from could have doubled within the decade.

In 2012, the Riots, Communities and Victims Panel found 500,000 families of this type. It said they needed support. However, they did not reach the threshold for help due to a lack of funding.

The Labour party claimed that the government had implemented only 11 of the 63 recommendations made by the panel at the time.

The unrest, which erupted in the capital city of London on August 6, 2011, before spreading to 66 other areas, followed on the heels of fatal shooting of Mark Duggan by police in Tottenham.

Minister flew to 30 countries in seven months without isolating – including six red list nations

The UK’s climate tsar has been accused of hypocrisy for flying to at least 30 countries in seven months, including six on travel red list.

Half of Alok Sharma’s visits took place when international travel was all but banned in Britain.

The minister has racked up at least 200,000 miles from the trips, and critics have asked if he could have attended more ‘virtual’ meetings to minimise his carbon footprint.

After all, Sharma is the president of COP26, a climate change conference this October and November in which world leaders will hold crucial talks on global warming.

The minister didn’t self-isolate after any of his trips because he was exempt as a ‘crown servant’ on state business, although a negative test is still required.

Specialist Casualty Actors - Open opportunity - This means that the contract is currently active


To ensure realism in the training of Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) staff, NARU requires specialist actors with the ability to simulate realistic and severe trauma, including amputations. In addition to the specialist actors NARU requires make-up artists capable of replicating realistic wounds. It is the responsibility of the make-up artists to supply make-up and other ancillary equipment. The make-up artists will support and work with NARU staff who provide realistic casualty moulage.

The casualty actors must be capable of replicating a range of injuries from minor cuts to leg and arm amputations. The actors must be capable of aiding the realism of differing training scenarios and to enhance the "shock factor" of the training exercises

Male, female amputees and able-bodied actors are required to participate in scenario-based role play, enabling the realism of training exercises to be maintained.

Piers Morgan Calls for Unvaccinated to be Denied Medical Treatment

Since Piers Morgan left Good Morning Britain in a tantrum, he has been having to find ways to get attention and stay relevant. As a result, he has been leading the charge for unvaccinated people to face government-sanctioned discrimination after he stated that those who haven’t had the Covid vaccine should be denied medical treatment.

In a tweet, Piers said: “Those who refused to be vaccinated, with no medical reason not to, should be refused NHS care if they then catch covid. I’m hearing of anti-vaxxers using up ICU beds in London at vast expense to the taxpayer. Let them pay for their own stupidity & selfishness.”

Of course, Morgan failed to mention that the official data shows that 87% of people who have died were vaccinated.

Black Sea Turning Into "Zone Of Dangerous Military Confrontation": Russian Foreign Ministry

The Black Sea is turning into a zone of dangerous military confrontation, Yuri Pilipson, director of the Fourth European Department of the Russian Foreign Ministry, said in an interview with RIA Novosti.

This was the diplomat’s answer to a question of how NATO exercises affect the security situation in the region.

“It is quite obvious that this kind of “training” provokes, and does not prevent, conflict situations,” the diplomat said.

According to him, Russia will continue to take measures to ensure national security with the help of both diplomatic and other instruments.

“We have repeatedly warned that the escalation of military-political tension directly at our borders carries a confrontational charge,” added Pilipson.

Travel warning for millions of Brits who have had AstraZeneca vaccine

Five million double-jabbed Brits who received the Covid-19 AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine have been issued a travel warning as the government prepares to provide an update on changes to the UK travel list.

More than 13 European destinations are refusing to accept certain batched of the vaccine which were made in India by Serum.

As many as 17 destinations are set to be added to the green list today and up to five million Brits will not have their vaccination status recognised across Europe.

It will mean some Birts may have to isolate for up to a fortnight despite a new vaccine "passport" being offered to people arriving in the UK from the US and the EU.

Portugal, a popular destination for Brits, has now scrapped quarantine rules for fully jabbed Britons.

Jeremy Clarkson criticises Covid scientists, saying ‘if you die, you die’

In an interview with the Radio Times, Clarkson gives his views on the pandemic and what should happen next. Many will find his thoughts typically boorish and insensitive.

“When it started, I read up on pandemics and they tend to be four years long,” he said.

“I think the politicians should sometimes tell those communists at Sage to get back in their box. Let’s just all go through life with our fingers crossed and a smile on our face. I can see Boris doesn’t want to open it up and shut us back down again. But if it’s going to be four years … and who knows, it could be 40 years.”

Or it could be for ever. “Well, if it’s going to be for ever, let’s open it up and if you die, you die.”
