150+ arrested as anti-lockdown protesters march in London, defying police warning to obey Covid-19 restrictions (VIDEOS)

Massive crowds gathered in central London on Saturday to protest lockdown measures designed to combat the Covid-19 pandemic, and police followed through on their promise to arrest demonstrators, leading to multiple clashes.

Ahead of the protest, Metropolitan Police released a statement warning anyone planning to travel to King’s Cross that current lockdown measures do not permit massive crowds.

“Ahead of a planned protest on Saturday, 28 November, the Met is urgently reminding those looking to attend that protest is not currently a permitted exemption to the prohibition on gatherings under the current Coronavirus regulations,” they said.

More than 2.5m people in England to get free vitamin D supply

More than 2.5 million people in England are to be offered a free supply of vitamin D by the government, officials have said.

Care homes in England will automatically receive supplies of the supplement for their residents in plans announced on Saturday. People on the clinically extremely vulnerable list will be sent a letter offering them the chance to opt in for a supply to their homes.

The free deliveries will start in January, providing four months’ worth of vitamin D to up to 2.7 million people.

Public Health England (PHE) advises everyone to take 10 microgrammes of vitamin D a day between October and early March, particularly the elderly, people who do not go outside and those with dark skin.

Anti-lockdown protestor howls and bursts into tears as police arrest him for 'Covid rule breaches' ahead of London demo

Central London descended into chaos today as police faced boos and chants of 'shame on you' as they arrested anti-lockdown protesters during a rally against government curbs led by Piers Corbyn.

Traffic was temporarily blocked on Regent Street as officers attempted to handcuff people on the ground in the middle of the road, while the Met Police handcuffed demonstrators weaving through the capital.

Video which was first posted to Twitter showed a lone man howling in apparent agony and bursting into tears as he fell to the ground while police arrested him outside King's Cross station.

Boris Govt Assures UN of Its ‘Commitment to the Global Compact on Migration’

Boris Johnson’s government has reaffirmed its commitment to the United Nations’ controversial Global Compact for Migration, rejected by the Trump administration in the United States, and by conservative-led governments in countries including Australia, Poland, and Hungary.

Speaking at the International Organization for Migration (IOM, or UN Migration Agency) Council, the British ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, Julian Braithwaite, bragged that the British government is “the second-largest donor” to the IOM, and insisted that it was “ready to support” the globalist body on its “journey”.

“The UK reaffirms its commitment to the Global Compact on Migration, and is pleased to recognise the UN’s hard work since signature to translate GCM principles into action that helps migrants. We believe this work is beginning to show promising results,” said Braithwaite, a former press officer and then speechwriter for Labour prime minister Tony Blair.

The British Library Adds George Orwell, Byron, and More to Dubious List of Shame

The British Library has added George Orwell, Lord Bryon, Ted Hughes, and others to a list of shame for cultural figures with supposed links to slavery.

George Orwell, real name Eric Arthur Blair, is perhaps most famous for his books Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four, was an anti-imperialist and a socialist — although not one who was afraid to call our the wrongdoings of contemporary communist regimes and their apologists — but the British Library saw fit to add him to its shame list because he had a great-grandfather who owned slaves in the Caribbean.

His fortune was long gone by the time Orwell, the son of a sub-deputy opium agent in British India, was born, however, according to the Telegraph, citing the Orwell Society.

Declassified UK: REVEALED: The UK military’s overseas base network involves 145 sites in 42 countries

Britain’s armed forces have a far more extensive base network than ever presented by the Ministry of Defence. New research by Declassified reveals the extent of this global military presence for the first time – as the government announces an extra 10% spending on defence.

UK military has base sites in five countries around China: naval base in Singapore, garrisons in Brunei, drone testing sites in Australia, three facilities in Nepal and quick reaction force in Afghanistan

Cyprus hosts 17 UK military installations including firing ranges and spy stations, with some located outside UK’s “sovereign base areas”

Britain maintains military presence in seven Arab monarchies where citizens have little or no say in how they are governed

UK personnel are stationed across 15 sites in Saudi Arabia, supporting internal repression and the war in Yemen, and at 16 sites in Oman, some run directly by British military

Fortnum & Mason boss gives dire forecast that a 'THIRD of British retail brands will disappear' by MARCH after 80% plunge in footfall due to lockdown and shoppers avoiding the West End

Ewan Venters said the Government's new strict tier system, which bans people meeting anyone outside their household indoors, would restrict the number of shoppers venturing into stores over the crucial Christmas period.

He told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: 'I predict that by the end of the first quarter of next year up a third of British retail brands will disappear.'

Sir Philip Green ‘has used up his last lifeline’: Experts warn Topshop empire Arcadia Group faces 'inevitable' ruin within days - putting 13,000 jobs at risk at 'worst possible time' just before Christmas

In what could be the biggest UK corporate collapse of the coronavirus pandemic so far, the group is set to appoint administrators from Deloitte as early as next Monday although the plans could still be delayed.

The revelations emerged on Black Friday today as non-essential retailers in England stayed shut while the four-week lockdown continues, with the crisis having already claimed 250,000 job losses or potential redundancies.

The move, which is said to have come after Sir Philip could not secure an emergency £30million loan to keep the retail giant afloat, puts its 13,000 staff at risk of redundancy, four months after it axed 500 roles in its head office.

Bosses at the Usdaw union said it was 'a devastating blow for workers at Arcadia and could not have come at a worse time, just before Christmas', adding that they were seeking urgent meetings with management.

Number of Britons Referred to State Counter-Extremism Program Up 10%, Home Office Reports

The number of people referred to the United Kingdom’s Prevent counter-extremism program rose by 10 percent in the year to March 31, with over half them aged 20 or under, the Home Office’s fresh statistics showed on Thursday.

MOSCOW, (Sputnik) - In the year ending 31 March 2020, there were 6,287 referrals to Prevent. This has been an increase of 10% compared to the record low in the previous year (5,737 in the year ending March 2019), the Home Office said in a press release.

Males make up 88 percent of those flagged up over fears of extremism.

Fifty-four percent of all referrals are for individuals aged 20 years or under.

London spared from toughest regional restrictions, but Manchester and Birmingham plunged into tier-three lockdown

The government has announced new regional restrictions that will come into force when England's national lockdown ends next week. London will be in the second-highest tier, meaning no household mixing indoors.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock confirmed on Thursday that the national lockdown will be replaced with a return to the tiered system across England from next Wednesday.

The restrictions announced by Hancock will see London spared from the highest tier of lockdown and instead being placed in tier two, meaning bars and restaurants can reopen but households won't be allowed to mix indoors.

UK Govt: Lockdown Likely to Last 12+ Months, ‘Hard Winter’ Coming, Repeated Vaccinations May be Required

Lockdowns won’t end until anticipated vaccines “come to our aid” in the future and the country can expect a “hard winter”, the Prime Minister has said, as the government’s science advisor warned it is quite possible the coronavirus will simply mutate to outperform vaccinations.

Speaking at the Downing Street press conference hours after the details of the new post-lockdown-lockdown were revealed to the country, Prime Minister Boris Johnson made clear to the nation that there was no reasonable hope of lockdown ending soon, saying merely that there was “reason to hope” that spring would see an end of “this era of restrictions”.

Given the United Kingdom’s regime of lockdowns began in March 2020, it stands to reason that the Prime Ministers remarks confirm that the nation’s lockdown will be in place with varying degrees of intensity for at least a full calendar year.

Efficacy vs safety? AstraZeneca vaccine is ‘busted flush’ IF it cannot help elderly – but US jabs may be worse, UK doctor tells RT

AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine could be a lost cause if it turns out that it cannot protect the elderly against the disease, Malcolm Kendrick, an NHS GP, told RT. He warned that on the other hand, US vaccines could be dangerous.

“Realistically, it has got to work for the elderly, otherwise it is a busted flush,” the Scottish doctor said, commenting on the recent media reports about the jab’s potential efficacy. Earlier, Bloomberg reported that the vaccine developed by the British-Swedish drug manufacturer might be much less effective for the elderly population than it is for younger people.

Guardian censors Jeremy Corbyn cartoon

The Guardian has censored Steve Bell, one of the UK’s leading political cartoonists.

The long-running “If…” strip did not appear in the paper on Wednesday. Bell provided this copy to The Electronic Intifada.

It is a commentary on Labour’s ongoing campaign to purge its former left-wing leader Jeremy Corbyn – a veteran Palestine solidarity campaigner.

In the strip Corbyn is coerced into apologizing “for not being a right wing Zionist.”

Bell confirmed to The Electronic Intifada that the paper had refused to publish, saying that: “The only reason I was given was that they felt ‘uncomfortable’ with running it.”

He said that the paper usually gives an explanation for the few instances in which it had refused to publish. Since it didn’t this time, he said, “it could be construed as censorship.”

‘You Don’t Need to Obey an Illegal Order!’: Tory MP Stands up to Cops Arresting Elderly Lockdown Protester

A Member of Parliament from the ruling Conservative Party was seen shouting, “You don’t need to obey an illegal order!” at police as they arrested an elderly woman at a peaceful anti-lockdown protest in London on Tuesday.

Metropolitan Police were filmed hauling the elderly woman “spread eagle” into the back of a police van, arresting her for alleged breaches of the Chinese coronavirus restrictions. Shocked at what he was witnessing, Sir Charles Walker MP shouted at the officers, calling their actions an “absolute disgrace”.

Following the arrest, the Tory MP took to the House of Commons to implore Prime Minister Boris Johnson to put an end to the “unconstitutional” and “un-British” restrictions on the right to protest.

British Economy Shrinks By Most In 300 Years Thanks To COVID, Chancellor Warns

Just days after UK Prime MInister Boris Johnson confirmed that the 2nd English COVID-19 lockdown would soon come to an end (as England is expected to revert back to the tiered system of restrictions that preceded it), Chancellor Rishi Sunak on Wednesday shared some grim numbers about the state of the British economy with Parliament.

With global stocks on track to clinch their strongest monthly performance in modern history, Sunak warned that the British economy is set to contract by by more than 11% in 2020, the biggest annual contraction in 300 years - a period that has included at least one other global pandemic, and many, many wars.

It's no secret that the UK has been one of the hardest-hit developed nations. With one of the highest COVID-19 death tolls in the world, British leaders have imposed some of the harshest restrictions on movement and businesses in all of Europe.

BBC fat cats splurged £300k on lavish hotels and luxury flights: As the over-75s are forced to pay for licences, TV chiefs' high life on expenses is revealed

An audit of three dozen bosses who each earn at least £200,000 a year found shocking examples of executive extravagance.

Despite warning they would face bankruptcy if they failed to cut services, town hall bosses spent £90,000 of public money on trips abroad.

It comes after the Local Government Association said councils need an extra £10billion to plug the funding gap and improve services.

“Coup 1953” Documentary Opens Up Wounds Over Britain’s Criminal Role in Iran’s History

“Angry TV film-makers stop release of lauded Iranian documentary,” ran the headline of a recent Guardian news story. What documentary exactly is this? We learn: “Coup 53, which charts MI6’s role in the shah’s restoration, has been blocked by makers of a 1985 show, who say it sullies their names.”

The makers of that show, the British TV series End of Empire, deny that the UK government put any pressure on them to remove an interview with an MI6 officer from their series (they say it was an off the record interview). For this reason they are preventing the release of a film that documents Britain’s treachery back in the 1950s, when a vicious act of state-sponsored terrorism was perpetrated against an entire nation.

Number 10 cherry-picked 'spurious' Covid data to justify England's second lockdown and may have intended to frighten the public, top Cambridge statistician claims

Number 10 cherry-picked 'spurious' coronavirus data to justify England's second lockdown and may have intended to frightened the public, according to one of Britain's top experts.

Eminent statistician Sir David Spiegelhalter said ministers had 'broken pretty much every code of conduct' by choosing only to show worst-case scenarios, which were often based on out of date data.

The Cambridge professor told MPs today: 'I don't want to ascribe motivation to anyone of course. But if someone was really trying to manipulate the audience and frighten them and persuade them that what was being done was correct, rather than genuinely inform them, then this is the kind of thing they might do.'

Doom-mongering graphs which predicted 50,000 cases by mid-October and 4,000 deaths a day by late November were used by Downing Street to justify England's second lockdown.

'A Very British Tilt': How UK May Influence US-China Strategic Competition in Indo-Pacific Region

On 22 November, the UK centre-right think tank Policy Exchange, described as the largest and most influential conservative entity, issued a report titled "A Very British Tilt" that outlined the country's new post-Brexit strategy in the Indo-Pacific Region (IPR).

'I haven't made any money since March': Pub bosses say they face disaster with a million jobs on the line if Tier 2 pubs are forced to serve 'substantial meals' to anyone wanting a drink

Ministers have been warned that clamping harsh restrictions on pubs and restaurants next month would be the 'final nail in the coffin' for thousands of venues and trigger a jobs bloodbath.

Hospitality bosses today railed against the tighter tiers system, which have been trailed ahead of an announcement by Boris Johnson, and said it represents an end to lockdown 'only in name'.

The Prime Minister is preparing to tack back to a strategy of carving the country up into three 'alert levels', depending on the prevalence of Covid-19 in the region, when the national lockdown ends in nine days.

Although the 10pm curfew will be scrapped, ministers are expected to usher in tougher curbs; in Tier 2, only pubs serving meals will be allowed to open, and in Tier 3 they can only serve takeaways.

SPECIAL INVESTIGATION: You've spent the year watching every penny, now hear how the public sector has squandered £5.6bn of taxpayer cash on everything from luxury travel to lavish bonuses, and fine dining

Our probe into the state sector gravy train exposed how:

  • Whitehall mandarins banked at least £42 million in bonuses last year, and taxpayers stumped up £81 million for trade union representatives to take time off work;
  • Thousands were spent on first-class flights at the Treasury;
  • Millions were earmarked for government staff to work from home, including the purchase of designer furniture;
  • Hipster takeaways worth a total of £50,000 were ferried to the health department during lockdown;
  • Thousands were spent on luxury restaurants, steakhouses and even on a day at the zoo;
  • Almost £500,000 was shelled out on an art collection the public never sees.

    Meg Hillier, chairman of the public accounts committee, said: 'There is no magic money pot – this is taxpayers' money that's being spent at a time when the low-paid and hard-working people have seen a massive cut in income or lost their livelihood."

    The UK’s Labour Party has been purging members using a hit list by a leading Israel lobby group, The Electronic Intifada has learned.

    THE EU has a sinister masterplan to "build an empire" and Britain should not be a part of it, the late Labour veteran Tony Benn claimed in a throwback speech.

    Mr Benn spent much of his political life campaigning against Britain’s membership of the EU and its precursor, the EEC. It is a tragic irony that his life’s calling was not achieved until after his death in 2014 ? but that is not to say his views are irrelevant today. As the Brexit debate rumbles on, Leavers and Remainers alike would be wise to take note of Mr Benn’s claim that unelected Brussels bureaucrats are on an “empire-building” mission.

    Britons are set to be given Covid 'freedom passes' as long as they test negative for the virus twice in a week, it has been suggested.

    The details of the scheme are still being ironed out by officials in Whitehall, who hope it will allow the country to get back to normal next year.

    To earn the freedom pass, people will need to be tested regularly and, provided the results come back negative, they will then be given a letter, card or document they can show to people as they move around.

    Nov 21 19:51

    If the ‘Great Reset’ really is so good for us, let’s hold a referendum on it, so it can have a democratic mandate (or not)

    The World Economic Forum’s ‘Great Reset’ and associated Fourth Industrial Revolution would, if implemented, mean far deeper changes to our everyday lives than Brexit, yet is being pushed through without any proper debate.


    No one can say that Brexit, if it indeed finally happens at the end of this year, hasn’t been properly discussed, or that it hasn’t had democratic endorsement. The ‘Leave’ side won the referendum vote and then in 2019 the Tory government was re-elected on the promise of ‘Get Brexit Done’. Traditional ‘Red Wall’ Labour seats went Tory for the first time in 2019 largely because of Brexit.

    Contrast this with the Great Reset/Fourth Industrial Revolution. The UK government, like many others in the West, is clearly trying to implement the Klaus Schwab/WEF programme, under the guise of fighting a virus, but unlike Brexit, not only is there no public vote, there is not even a debate.

    UK MP Suggests People Shouldn’t be Allowed to Work Without COVID Vaccine

    A British MP faced backlash Monday after suggesting that employees in the UK should not be allowed to go to work unless they can prove that they have been vaccinated against COVID-19, when the shot becomes available.

    “If vaccination works and if we’re confident it’s safe, and all indications so far are good, then I can certainly see the day when businesses say: ‘Look, you’ve got to return to the office and if you’re not vaccinated you’re not coming in,’” said Tom Tugendhat.

    “And I can certainly see social venues asking for vaccination certificates,” Tugendhat added.

    Far from being some extreme leftist politician, Tugendhat is a Conservative MP, he chairs the foreign affairs committee under Prime Minster Boris Johnson’s government.

    Tugendhat also suggested that there are precedents for requiring vaccinations for foreign travel.

    UK terrorism chief calls for ‘national debate’ on criminalizing doubts about Covid-19 vaccine

    The UK’s top counter-terrorism cop has suggested society stop allowing people to question the wisdom of a rapid Covid-19 vaccine rollout, regarding such skepticism to be life-threatening “misinformation.”

    Met Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu has pointedly questioned whether it is “the correct thing for society to allow” the sharing of “misinformation that could cost people’s lives” — demonizing all doubts about quickly developed Covid-19 vaccines whose potential long-term effects are not yet known and tying them to extremist radicalization efforts.

    While he didn’t go so far as to call for a law to be passed banning such content, his suggestion of a “national debate” will presumably light a fire under ministers already mulling such legislation.

    Pat Finucane and Rosemary Nelson – Britain’s Record of Conducting State Sponsored Assassinations

    With the eyes of the world focused on the alleged nerve agent attack on Sergei Skripal, the Russian who worked as a British double-agent before being exiled to the UK in 2010, since he and his daughter were found slumped on a Salisbury public bench last Sunday, one can’t help but notice the hypocritical reaction of the British political establishment to the attack.

    Addressing the House of Commons on Monday, Prime Minister Theresa May alleged Kremlin involvement in the incident due to ‘Russia’s record of conducting state-sponsored assassinations’.

    These words were spoken in a self-righteous sense, one that suggested the UK held the moral ground over Russia and would never go so far as to conduct assassinations of political opponents on foreign soil.

    Anyone with even a basic knowledge of British foreign policy towards Ireland however, would know that this patently isn’t the case.

    Sick Britain’s Orwellian Dystopia

    Britain’s sorry excuse for a leader, Boris Johnson, has proudly announced the biggest spending spree on the nation’s military in 30 years. This comes as the country is reeling from disease, a healthcare crisis and economic misery for millions of workers.

    The United Kingdom’s so-called “defence” budget is to increase by £16.5 billion ($21.8 bn) over the next four years. That’s a hike of about 10 per cent on the current military budget, bringing it to a total of over £56.5 bn ($75 bn) per year. It will make Britain the second-biggest spender on military among the 30-nation NATO alliance, after the United States.

    This extraordinary allocation of resources by the British government comes amid an economic and social crisis facing Britain, largely triggered by the coronavirus pandemic and the British government’s risibly inadequate response to protect public health. (The disease is not the primary cause; it is Britain’s capitalist system.)

    Police stop lockdown-busting service at London church

    Police have prevented an evangelical pastor holding a church service in defiance of lockdown restrictions.

    About 30 worshippers had gathered at the Angel church in north London on Sunday for a service including a baptism after pastor Regan King said Christians served “a greater law”.

    Four Metropolitan police officers prevented people entering the building in Clerkenwell, and two police vans and a police car were parked outside. Officers allowed 15 people to remain inside the church, while another 15 took part in a socially distanced outdoor service nearby.

    Under current restrictions, communal services are banned although places of worship may remain open for individual prayer and streaming of worship, and small funerals are permitted. They are also permitted to run social action projects, such as food banks.

    While vast effort is made to downplay the British roots of the deep state by the media which tends to portray this problem from a partisan narrative of “democratic party corruption”, this sleight of hand misses the causal nexus and demands we believe that the tail truly wags the dog.

    Get ready for the mother of all Brexit sell-outs say Ben Habib and Jonathan Saxty

    IN case you missed it, Vote Leave veterans Dominic Cummings and Lee Cain have left Number 10.

    Some read into the resignations a show of defiance by the Prime Minister and a chance for him to ‘show his mettle’. Others see a shift to a softer form of conservatism, a victory for so-called Tory ‘wets’ and a likely betrayal of Brexit. Does the soap opera within Number 10 really matter that much? Have we not all seen the Government’s abandonment of fiscal responsibility and the ease with which it has overridden civil liberties over the last year?

    Lords strike down 2 further provisions of controversial Internal Market Bill in another blow to Johnson government

    The House of Lords has voted down another two provisions of the controversial Internal Market Bill that would have allowed London to reduce powers of the devolved administrations and amend it with little Parliament oversight.

    The peers voted 367 to 209 on Wednesday to reject an amendment that would allow Westminster to unilaterally impose rules and standards for the goods and services to let them flow freely across all four parts of the UK, while bypassing the views of the devolved governments in Cardiff, Edinburgh and Belfast.

    Instead, the lords supported strengthening the role of the very same devolved administrations. Crossbench peer Baroness Finlay of Llandaff argued that the bill proposed by London would “shackle the ability of the elected parliaments in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to find their own solutions to the problems we face."

    British Govt Refuses to Rule Out Mandatory Vaccines, Orders 5 Million Jabs From Moderna

    The British government has refused to rule out the notion of making Chinese coronavirus vaccines mandatory if it considers the voluntary administration of vaccines to be inadequate in slowing the spread of the virus.

    On Monday, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said that, at present, the government is not “proposing” mandatory vaccinations but went on to say that he has learned “not to rule things out” adding: “We have to watch what happens and you have to make judgments accordingly.”

    A government source told the British broadsheet The Daily Telegraph: “This is not our preferred option, we have always operated on the basis of educating people about vaccines to ensure a system of informed consent.”

    “If there was an effective vaccine, and because of low uptake we were still seeing deaths in large numbers, then we would have to consider it,” the source warned.

    Lord Malloch Brown Revealed: The British Hand Behind The Coup Shows Its Scales Again

    Throughout the four-year drama of Russiagate, the hand of British intelligence has revealed itself continuously.

    From the obvious role of Sir Richard Dearlove and his former MI6 underling Christopher Steele who together played a driving role in shaping the dodgy dossier, to their involvement with Oxford Rhodes Scholar Strobe Talbott in composing, promoting and marketing the fraudulent dossier to targeted members of Congress and media, to British Ambassador Sir Darroch caught “flooding the zone” with British intelligence assets to shape Trump’s perception of the world, to the array of British entrapment operations that targeted Michael Flynn as early as 2014 in London… wherever one looks, the hand of British intelligence seems to be everywhere.

    How the British government secretly funded Syrian cartoons and comic books as anti-Assad propaganda aimed at children

    Leaked documents show how the Foreign & Commonwealth Office spent millions setting up a clandestine network to churn out pro-rebel material, much of it aimed at winning the hearts and minds of kids.

    A swath of internal UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) files have exposed a number of covert ways in which London sought to both propagandize Syrian children and turn them into weapons, in a vast, long-running information warfare campaign at home and abroad.

    The documents are just some of the bombshell papers released by hacktivist collective Anonymous, outlining a variety of cloak-and-dagger actions undertaken by the UK government against the Syrian state over many years.

    The overriding objective behind them all was to destabilize the government of Bashar Assad, convince Syrians, Western citizens, foreign governments, and international bodies that the Free Syrian Army (FSA) was a legitimate alternative, and flood media the world over with pro-opposition propaganda.

    The £18bn coronavirus PPE fiasco: Devastating report exposes chronic bungling and 'jobs for pals' in rush to source safety gear during pandemic

    A devastating report today lifts the lid on the cronyism and ineptitude that has characterised the Government's £18billion rush to source PPE and other equipment during the coronavirus crisis.

    Michael Gove and Dominic Cummings were both drawn into the debacle after the spending watchdog said officials failed to consider potential conflicts of interests involving companies linked to them.

    The National Audit Office revealed that officials had signed contracts for hundreds of thousands of facemasks which turned out to be unusable – wasting hundreds of millions of pounds.

    Nurse, 45, is suspended for spreading Covid conspiracy theories including that face masks help spread the virus and likening vaccines to 'genocide' – as NHS 'anti-vaxxer' Facebook group doubles in size overnight

    Colleagues reported Tracey McCallum to NHS24 bosses at Crosshouse Hospital in Ayrshire, Scotland, after she branded the outbreak a 'scamdemic'.

    The 45-year-old from Darvel was also reported to the Nursing and Midwifery Council after telling people vitamins and minerals could beat off the disease.

    It comes as membership for an 'anti-vaxxer' NHS group that compared the Pfizer jab to 'poison' doubled overnight.

    Galloway: Netflix’s The Crown reminds us Thatcher was just like Trump – an outsider to the ruling class, surrounded by a ‘swamp’

    Gillian Anderson’s portrayal of the Iron Lady in the lavish production reminds us that, though she was a Tory PM, Margaret Thatcher was no conservative, but a handbag-wielding wrecking ball to all that was ‘great’ about Britain.

    The Netflix mega-production The Crown has been a trip through my lifetime, really – I was born in 1954. Her Majesty was crowned in 1952. I’m familiar with all of the episodes of her soon-to-be 70-year reign, though I’ve met her only twice, and one of those was as a wine waiter!

    As the series has gone on, of course, more and more often I can say, “I was there” or “This is what I thought at the time.” Fifty years in politics, and nearly 30 of those in Parliament, can get you that way.

    VACCINE DEATH WAVE: UK government posts bid for AI system to process the expected flood of COVID-19 vaccine injuries and side effects described as a “direct threat to patient life”

    What’s clear from the description in the contract award document is that:

    1 - The MHRA is expecting covid-19 vaccines to cause a surge of adverse events / side effects.
    2 - The MHRA is fully aware that these adverse events will harm and kill many patients. They specifically warn of, “a direct threat to patient life.”
    3 - The MHRA’s legacy systems are unable to handle the expected volume of incoming reports of covid-19 vaccine injuries, meaning the expected volume of such reports will be very large and unprecedented.
    4 - The MHRA recognizes the “extreme urgency” of putting a new system in place to identify the adverse reactions of covid-19 vaccines.
    5 - The MHRA states that if a new AI system is not urgently installed, it will be unable to identify many of the adverse reactions stemming from the covid-19 vaccine, and that this failure will negatively impact public health. (i.e. People will die.)

    Coup d’État in America: A Limey Viewpoint

    If you overturn democracy then America will become just another part of the brutal undemocratic world and if that happens nothing will ever, ever be the same again.

    Here’s a view of what’s happening in the USA right now from Paul Weston, a tea-drinking, roast-beef-eating, pub-crawling Brit.

    Actually, scratch the pub-crawling — Britain is currently suffering under a lockdown of the utmost malignancy, and I think the pubs are closed again. One can only hope that off-licences are considered essential businesses, as ABC stores are here in Virginia.

    Nigel Farage fumes at coronavirus 'mess' after being told to quarantine after Trump visit

    NIGEL FARAGE has blasted the UK Government over its coronavirus quarantine measures after returning from the US where he attended a Trump rally.

    The leader of the Brexit Party spoke at a Donald Trump rally last month in Arizona to give support to the Republican election campaign. On his return to the UK, Nigel Farage has had to self-isolate due to Government travel measures.

    Silencing discussion? UK Labour Party demands online crackdown on ‘anti-vax disinformation’ ahead of Covid-19 vaccine rollout

    With the UK preparing for a Covid-19 vaccine rollout, the Labour Party is calling for emergency censorship legislation to punish social-media companies if they allow posting of what it considers to be “anti-vax disinformation.”

    “Social-media companies have a pitiful record of tackling disinformation,” shadow culture secretary Jo Stevens tweeted on Sunday.

    The government needs to stop dragging its heels and force companies to remove this dangerous content ahead of the rollout of the coronavirus vaccine.

    Prince Charles calls on Britain and Germany to 'reaffirm' their bond to 'defend the future we owe our children and our grandchildren' after jetting in on £1million makeover ministerial RAF jet

    Prince Charles will call on Britain and Germany to 'reaffirm' their bond and make striving for a 'better tomorrow' their 'common cause' during a ceremony marking Germany's National Day of Mourning on Sunday.

    Charles and Camilla jetted into Schönefeld - just south of Berlin - in the ministerial plane RAF Voyager this evening ahead tomorrow's event - and were greeted on the tarmac at Brandenburg Airport by Britain's ambassador to Germany Jill Gallard.

    The royal couple are the first dignitaries to fly in RAF Voyager since aircraft's £1 million paint job which saw it transformed from grey to white - with a Union flag on the tailfin and United Kingdom written in gold on the fuselage.

    Police scuffle with anti-lockdown and anti-vaxxer protestors and make dozens of arrests - including Piers Corbyn - after thousands march through Bristol and Liverpool

    Police scuffled with anti-lockdown and anti-vaxxer protestors and made dozens of arrests after thousands marched through Bristol and Liverpool city centres today despite warnings they could face fines for breaking coronavirus restrictions.

    The group Stand Up Bristol gathered with signs in the city this morning, with at least 14 maskless protestors being arrested by police as tensions bubbled over.

    Avon and Somerset police also said that as well as several people being arrested for failing to comply with the directions of officers, one arrest was also made after an officer was assaulted.

    Christmas logjam! Shops warn of festive stock shortages after Britain’s biggest container port at Felixstowe becomes clogged up with 11,000 PPE containers

    Shops could see stock shortages this Christmas as 11,000 shipping containers full of PPE bought by the Government are stuck in Britain's busiest container port.

    Currently 30 per cent of container space at the Port of Felixstowe is being taken up by the PPE order as the Government have nowhere else to store it, sources claim.

    This backlog of containers - some of which have been there since August - is a 'significant factor' in the current congestion seen at the port.

    PETER HITCHENS: Our panicking Prime Minister is bankrupting Britain

    How extraordinary that the Johnson Government, while in serious money trouble, chooses to spend billions on a vaccine against a disease which in many cases has no symptoms at all.

    Yet this peculiar decision is a mere ripple on the surface of a much deeper problem. Britain in 2020 has many economic difficulties, but good credit. The lenders and investors of the world believe the UK is run by responsible people and will repay its debts.

    But my astute colleague Dan Atkinson recently discovered that the Treasury and the Bank of England are creating money out of nothing on a huge scale. It is like the old fairy tale of Rumpelstiltskin, who could spin gold out of straw – but at a terrible price.

    Report: Vote Leave Boss out as BoJo Adviser, PM to Push Green Agenda, End Culture Wars

    Vote Leave mastermind Dominic Cummings will be out as the chief adviser to the prime minister by Christmas, according to reports, with Boris Johnson looking to end the “culture wars” and emphasise a “green” agenda in line with fiancée Carrie Symonds’ wishes.

    Cummings’ impending fall follows what is said to follow an intensified bout of bitter infighting between the soon-to-be-former Chief Adviser and other former Vote Leave staffers and allies of Miss Symonds within 10 Downing Street, with an insider describing the prime minister’s official residence as “a nest of vipers”.

    This culminated in Vote Leave alumnus and Cummings ally Lee Cain being tipped to be promoted from Director of Communications to Chief of Staff — but ultimately ending up leaving the prime ministerial team entirely after Symonds reportedly “vetoed” his elevation.

    Nigel Farage warns 'Brexit sell-out is close' as Cummings leaves Boris Johnson's side

    NIGEL FARAGE has said he fears a "Brexit sell-out" is on the cards after the Prime Minister's top aide and Vote Leave mastermind Dominic Cummings was pictured carrying a box out of Downing Street.

    Boris Johnson’s closest adviser was snapped leaving Number 10 on Friday evening following days of fierce infighting. After initial reports claimed Mr Cummings had stepped down with immediate effect, sources said he planned to continue working for the Government until mid-December.

    Number of Covid-19 patients being treated in NHS hospitals in Tier Three Liverpool DROPPED 15% in the week before England's second national lockdown, official data reveals

    Number 10 caved into pressure and hit the lockdown panic button in England earlier this month, after its scientific advisers warned hospitals were on track to be completely overwhelmed with Covid-19 patients by the end of November.

    Ministers abandoned their tiered scheme, which only came into force on October 14, and went with the crude national intervention, claiming that beds would soon be overrun and doctors would be forced to choose whose life to save.

    Yet NHS England figures show there were 413 people with Covid-19 at Liverpool University Hospitals, the city's biggest trust, on November 5, the day the country went into the second lockdown. This marked a 13 per cent drop from the 475 who were being treated the week prior, on October 30.

    Bill Gates Meets With Boris Johnson To Discuss Implementing ‘Global’ Vaccine Program

    The British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, currently being criticised for imposing another lockdown based on questionable data, has met with Bill Gates to discuss implementing a global “health security” program using Britain’s G7 presidency to speed up the process.

    Johnson met with Gates along with the CEOs of ten of the world’s biggest pharmaceutical companies to foment plans to roll out the vaccine for coronavirus.

    SIMON WALTERS: In all my years at Westminster I've never seen a No 10 inner circle descend into civil war so rapidly - now Boris's private office is as chaotic as his private life

    The Oxford professor, physicist and philosopher Sir Roger Penrose was finally awarded a Nobel Prize last month 55 years after he proved there are black holes in space.

    It has taken less than 55 weeks since the last election for proof to emerge that there is a gaping black hole at the heart of Boris Johnson’s Downing Street machine.

    The resignation this week of his director of communications Lee Cain has laid bare perhaps the Prime Minister’s biggest weakness: the way he runs his private office at No 10 is just as chaotic as the way he runs his private life.

    Britain’s Johnson is bowing & scraping to Washington and that’s something for the world to dread

    Gaffe-prone Boris Johnson is in a bind. He has been an ardent fan of Donald Trump but now finds himself on the wrong side of Washington if Joe Biden, who has declared victory in the election, makes it to the White House.

    Downing Street’s dilemma was apparent in the mix-up over a congratulatory note sent to Biden by Johnson over the election result which appeared to have originally been intended for Trump.

    The Republican incumbent has refused to concede victory to his Democratic rival citing voting fraud claims over Biden’s majority of popular votes and nominal Electoral College ballots. Nevertheless Downing Street has joined other foreign leaders in acknowledging Biden as the winner who will be inaugurated as president on January 20.

    UK prime minister slams anti-vax ‘nonsense’, tells Brits to get the Covid-19 jab when it’s their turn

    British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has hit out at anti-vaxxers and claimed that he has no hesitation about getting the Covid vaccine himself, adding that everyone should receive the jab once it’s available to them.

    Speaking to the media on Thursday, Johnson encouraged all Britons to get immunized against coronavirus, and took the opportunity to freshly lambast the anti-vax movement, which has been increasingly vocal in the UK.

    “Anti-vax is total nonsense; you should definitely get a vaccine,” he said.

    Flashback - Coronavirus: Unlawful do not resuscitate orders imposed on people with learning disabilities

    Unlawful 'do not resuscitate' orders are being placed on patients with a learning disability during the coronavirus pandemic without families being consulted.

    National charities have successfully challenged more than a dozen unlawful do not resuscitate orders (DNRs) that were put in place because of the patient’s disability rather than due to any serious underlying health risk.

    People with learning disabilities are up to 30 TIMES more likely to die from Covid-19, PHE study finds

    Experts said those aged 18-34 had a Covid fatality rate of 36.3 deaths per 100,000 people, compared to 1.2 per 100,000 in the general population.

    They concluded people with disabilities were up to six times more likely to die if they caught Covid-19, but that this varied substantially between age groups.

    NHS waiting list for routine treatment hits 12-year high with 140,000 patients put on hold for a YEAR - as proportion of suspected cancer patients getting seen within two week referral falls to record low

    The number of people in England forced to wait at least a year for routine treatment rocketed to almost 140,000 in September — the largest backlog since 2008.

    It marks a 100-fold surge in the waiting list compared to the same month last year, when 1,300 patients were put on hold for more than 12 months.

    NHS figures today also revealed cancer referrals hit a record low, with almost 30,000 suspected to be waiting more than two weeks between an urgent GP referral and their first appointment.

    Experts fear the desperate situation will only get worse because the second wave of the pandemic is forcing hospitals to cancel hundreds more routine surgeries and appointments in order to manage surging Covid-19 patient numbers.
