Why We Must Demand More of British Muslims

When I say 'demand' more of British Muslims, I don’t mean 'ask' more. That isn’t enough. Governments and civil society have been asking for long enough now, yet we still have a frightening lack of cohesion within communities where a large percentage of Muslims live. Nor has it encouraged a tolerant, inclusive attitude amongst huge swathes of Muslims.

Why We Must Demand More of British Muslims

When I say 'demand' more of British Muslims, I don’t mean 'ask' more. That isn’t enough.

Cameron: Britain Facing 'Greatest Terrorist Threat' in History

Britain is facing the "greatest and deepest" threat from terrorism in the country's history, according to Prime Minister David Cameron.

Leaving the EU Is the Only Way to Cut Immigration

It has become a familiar routine to hear Cameron plead he can reduce net migration, and for the Office of National Statistics to publish figures which reveal the futility of his efforts. Yesterday's ONS figures reveal annual net migration – the difference between numbers arriving and those leaving - soared past 243,000, equivalent to a city the size of Southampton. This is a massive increase of 68,000 from net migration the previous year, and two thirds of the increase are accounted for by the influx of EU migrants. 30 Aug 2014, 5:14 AM PDT

Even An Underdog Has His Day, Clacton Defects To UKIP

Nigel Farage and UKIPs newest party member Douglas Carswell MP looked like a honeymoon couple on the prom as they undertook their first walk about in Clacton.

Carswell's Defection Has Made me Rejoin UKIP, says Former Tory Youth Star

Douglas Carswell has joined UKIP. About bloody time; this is a long awaited move. Carswell has been in closer political alignment to UKIP than to the Conservatives for years; on Europe, on climate change, on localism, on restoring public faith in politics… and his assurances that a move to UKIP was not imminent were noticeable by their absence long before this week 29 Aug 2014

Dear Douglas; From One UKIP Convert To Another – Welcome!

Dear Douglas, So you finally took the plunge and made the jump. Feels good, doesn’t it? Quite liberating, in fact. No longer do you have to pretend that mere “reform” of the EU is a goal worth pursuing. No longer do you have to nod along as Cameron tells the House what a success his immigration reforms have been. No longer do you have to stay silent as the countryside and our channel are inundated with wind farms. 28 Aug 2014

Do Poor People Have a 'Crime Gene'? The Economist says Maybe

Science is, like, totally racist. That's the message we've been getting recently, from the relatively new science of genomics, which is revealing that race is indeed biological and not a "social construct" as it's fashionable to claim, and from large-scale psychological studies, which show that there might be genetic reasons why crime is persistently high in poor areas 28 Aug 2014

UKIP Deputy Chairman: Rotherham Could've Been Avoided With More Democratic Oversight

Can anyone with any shred of decency not be left feeling desolate and driven to righteous anger by the news from Rotherham? At least 1400 girls, some as young as eleven, repeatedly gang raped, abducted, prostituted, beaten, intimidated, made to watch pornography of the most vile kind, even doused in petrol and threatened with immolation. How could this have gone unchallenged, here in Britain, for at least sixteen years? 27 Aug 2014

A Conservative MP has said that Enoch Powell was right to warn that "non-Christian" immigration would cause social problems.

UK Govt Blows £100K on Twitter Lessons for Diplomats

Freedom of Information requests have revealed the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has spent £92,000 on training to help diplomats and staff to use intuitive social media platforms such as Twitter in the course of their work. As a recent study has shown six year old children are now more tech-savvy than the average 45 year old, and a recent ‘diplomatic census’ revealed almost half of diplomats are aged 46 or over, this may explain the big spend on the FCOs tech-dinosaurs 27 Aug 2014
