“To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of Remainers.”

Three and a half years after the EU referendum, the Withdrawal Agreement Bill passes the Commons at its third reading. We are leaving the EU at 11.00pm on 31st January. We’re actually doing it.

Chlorine-washed chicken and hormone-treated beef will be kept out of the UK under any trade deal with the US, the environment secretary has promised.

Theresa Villiers told the BBC the current European Union ban on the two foods will be carried over into UK legislation after Brexit.

I wouldn’t necessarily buy either if given the choice. The European Food Safety Agency says that chorine-washed chicken is fine to consume, but the process is banned because it can be used to hide other hygiene issues.

Ok then, no problem. Can we also ban the vegetables and salads from within the EU which are chlorine-washed too then?

As we were saying.

Iran mistakenly shot down the Ukrainian plane that crashed on Wednesday near Tehran with 176 people on board, US media report.

US officials say they believe the Ukrainian International Airlines Boeing 737-800 was hit by a missile, CBS says […]

CBS News quoted US intelligence sources as saying a satellite detected infrared “blips” of two missile launches, followed by another blip of an explosion.

Meanwhile, Newsweek quoted a Pentagon and senior US intelligence officials, as well as an Iraqi intelligence official, as saying they believed the Ukrainian plane was hit by a Russian-made Tor missile.

US President Donald Trump said on Thursday that “I have my suspicions” over the plane. “Somebody could have made a mistake,” he said.

I can go along with this. The 737-800 is a solid workhorse. It came down on the night that Iranian batteries were firing missiles into Iraq. Crews had been on a war footing since Soleimani was killed. Well crews get tired and jumpy. Concentration wanes, signals become confused. No-one wants to be the one who allowed Great Satan warplanes to get past. The 737 was a blip on a screen for someone in the middle of the night and he made a mistake.

The Man Who Would Not Be King

The news that Prince Harry and his wife Meghan have announced that they wish to step back from their senior status as members of the Royal Family has caused apoplexy in the British Press, Head Shaking at the Palace, and some understanding among the public. A lavish and some point out unearned lifestyle funded by taxpayers has always been a criticism of the life of the Monarchy and its various relations. With the cash and castles comes the cameras and scrutiny. Is it an easy bargain, a necessary duty, an unjust system or a beloved tradition? Probably a little of them all.
He’s not exactly abdicating or heading off to the mines to work. And it is unclear and unlikely that he wants the fawcett turned off completely, but it does seems he would like a more normal life, or something approaching a normal life. God knows when your a twelve year old boy asked to show no emotion when walking behind your mother’s coffin you might think “maybe this aint for me”.
There are Royal Lovers and Royal Haters, a constant stream of devotion, nitpicking and inordinate attention. I can see how one would wish it to be less, and how one might wish to delicately move outside the full glare of the spotlights.

It cannot be stressed often enough that the police are useless at best.

A girl who was sexually exploited by a gang that used her as a “piece of meat” found police took “no effective action” to stop it, a court heard.

Nine men deny raping the teenager in Sheffield. (Not men, nine muslims, of course – PM)

Prosecutors said she was used as “an object” and abused by the gang between 2010 and 2012.

The girl alerted South Yorkshire Police in 2011 but no investigation was carried out or crime recorded, Sheffield Crown Court heard.

Jurors were told the force “did nothing more than submit an intelligence report” about her claims that she was being raped and used for underage sex.

Prosecutor Peter Hampton said: “When [she] did tell the authorities, she found no effective action was taken to stop it.”

They weighed the risk of a left wing witchhunt, looked at their fat salaries and pensions, then allowed the young girl to be jihad-raped by the primitives again and again and again. Don’t ever tell me that the police deserve our respect. They lost that long ago. The cowards who aided and abetted this abuse deserve to lose everything, including their liberty.

Trump’s Address to the Nation and the World

A very good speech that delivers a message. The important part of the message is not directed to the Iranians, it’s directed to the cousins across the Pond.

I don’t accept that Iran thinks it has saved face by creating a few divots near a US outpost in Iraq. These are the mad mullahs here. They are are thirsting for proper revenge and have not stood down.

I don’t readily accept that a three year old Boeing 737-800, which was serviced a few days ago, suffered “technical failure” before crashing a minutes after take-off from Tehran. Not unless these “technical failures” were caused by a SAM. I’m intrigued as to why 82 Iranians were flying the Kiev anyway. Are they “New Germans” getting a cheap connection back to Europe? Likewise with the 63 Canadians, who are probably Iranians with Canadian passports. Maybe they’re all “refugees” who popped back home during our Christmas holiday. They don’t have one, obviously

Tehran won’t hand over the black box. No-one from Boeing or the NTSB will be going to Iran, so that’s that.

Guest Post by Paul McMahon

There was a court case in Cyprus today where a 19 year old British girl was given a four month prison sentence suspended for three years and has to pay €148 legal costs after Judge Michalis Papathanasiou told her he was giving her a ‘second chance’. Her crime was ‘causing public mischief’ after allegedly false claims of a gang rape. 

Her claims stem from an allegation that on the 17 July last year she met a young man in the Ayia Napa holiday resort in Cyprus and had consensual sex with him and while they were having sex 11 of his acquaintances came into the room where she was having sex and raped her, some of them filming the rape. She initially reported the rape to Cypriot authorities and was subsequently recalled by police and pressurised by them, (without legal representation), to state that she had invented the rape allegations:


British teenager accused of making false rape allegations in Cyprus was ‘forced to confess’

Police say the 19-year-old woman revoked her rape allegations, but a UK legal group says she was forced to retract the claims.


She was then arrested and held in custody while those accused of raping her were allowed to fly home. 

It should be noted that among the factors that have subsequently arisen during the case was that some of the alleged rapists, (who are aged from 15-23), denied knowing the young girl until traces of their DNA were found on her when they then changed their story to having consensual sex with her, that a medical examination found that there were 35 separate bruises on her body and that linguistic experts have determined that her ‘confession’ to inventing the rape claims seems to have been written in syntax not consistent with English as a native first language. 

It would be remiss of me here to omit the detail that the 12 alleged rapists were Israeli tourists, as I’m sure others will point this out and while I don’t think that this has a major relevance to the case I’d be fairly sure that their diplomatic service were almost certainly involved to some degree and had the circumstances been reversed with the victim being Israeli and the alleged perpetrators being British I suspect the outcome may have been different. 

I’m of the opinion that this was a clumsy attempt by the Cypriots at limiting any damage the original allegations would ave caused to the tourist trade so vital to Cyprus and should that be the case I’ve come up with a new tourist slogan for the Cypriot Tourist Board:

Come to Cyprus, get gang raped by twelve young men while they film it, our police will then pressurise you into withdrawing your complaint and imprison you on counter charges

Bit of a mouthful but I think it’s a goer?

Not just a disgusting miscarriage justice for the sake of economical expediency but a horrific re-victimising of the victim.
