BREAKING: Cabinet agrees to ‘take action’ against Assad in Syria

0

Downing Street has just released a readout from this afternoon’s Cabinet meeting.

It says: “This afternoon Cabinet met and received an update on the attack against innocent civilians in Douma, Syria, on Saturday.

“The Prime Minister said it was a shocking and barbaric act which killed up to 75 people, including children, in the most appalling and inhumane way.

“Cabinet agreed that the Assad regime has a track record of the use of chemical weapons and it is highly likely that the regime is responsible for Saturday’s attack.

“The Prime Minister said it was a further example of the erosion of international law in relation to the use of chemical weapons, which was deeply concerning to us all.

“Following a discussion in which every member present made a contribution, Cabinet agreed it was vital that the use of chemical weapons did not go unchallenged.

“Cabinet agreed on the need to take action to alleviate humanitarian distress and to deter the further use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime.

“Cabinet agreed the Prime Minister should continue to work with allies in the United States and France to coordinate an international response.”

ANGER as properties in London are only offered to Muslim tenants

0

London’s secret Muslim only accommodation has been exposed thanks to Rebel Media and the Daily Star

Hundreds of property adverts on websites such as GumTree were only available for those who are Muslim or of Asian descent.

It’s unbelievable that in this day and age, ‘white people’ or anyone who is not Muslim is discriminated against getting living accommodation.

The Star reported:

“Our reporters discovered hundreds more across the UK, including signs for “Asian only” and “Polish only” tenants.

The ads echo those of the 1950s and ’60s when landlords hung “Whites only” signs in windows. There are fears the discrimination scandal is fuelling a ghetto culture in our towns and cities which could be exploited by far-right groups.

In Woolwich, south-east London, tensions have been running high since Army drummer Lee, 26, was murdered by extremists last year.

At nearby Jash News, one small ad read: “Room to let for £400 in Plumstead… ONLY FOR ASIAN FAMILY.

Similar notices were discovered in ethnically diverse areas of east London such as Mile End and Whitechapel.

On a short walk along a busy high street five adverts were spotted in three newsagents windows saying “Muslim only” tenants and “Bangladeshi only”.

We also uncovered around 200 property adverts on websites such as Gumtree, specifying Muslims.”

According to experts, landlords who discriminate are breaking the law.

Could you imagine the massive uproar if ‘white Christian’ refused to let Muslims or Asians live in their property…it would be all over the news!

Caolane Robertson from Rebel Media put together a brilliant video outlining the issue.

Let us know what you think about this in the comments below!

Facebook user finds MUSLIM ONLY homes to rent in London and West Midlands

A Facebook user has posted an image showing four separate housing classified adverts in London and the West Midlands that appear to only be accepting Muslim tenants.

The post from a user on the Brexit HQ group, if genuine, proves that such advertisements are effectively ‘slipping through the net’ when it comes to ensuring that equality rules are not broken.

There will naturally be people out there who feel that these landlords and homeowners aren’t doing anything wrong on Gumtree, but at the same time there is one very important question that needs to be asked.

What would happen if the word ‘Muslim’ was changed for another faith group?

We’re not saying this to be Islamophobic in any way – far from it – we are just using this as an example to highlight what we feel is an example of the powers that be picking and choosing what they allow to be posted.

In some cases, it may all boil down to the use of the term ‘Muslims preferred’ instead of ‘Muslims only’ – however many will argue that they both amount to the same thing.

The really silly thing here is that these people could easily get around the rules by inviting ‘applications’ from everyone and then only considering Muslim people after all of the viewings have finished.

Again this isn’t exactly fair, but at the end of the day a landlord has the right to choose whoever they want to occupy their property – it’s just that the advertising has to be seen to be fair and equal in nature.

Having said all of this, are there really people who are patrolling the classified sites and shop windows of Britain looking to clamp down on this sort of thing?

Leaked EU document shows that NHS could be KILLED OFF if it ‘distorts’ the market

0

Here at Your Brexit we often take a look through past stories in the media to see if there is anything that we have missed, and it has just been brought to our attention that a leaked paper from Brussels last year shows that remaining in the European Union could result in the NHS being KILLED OFF altogether.

This story has appeared in The Express previously, and it centres around ‘secretive’ trade talks between top US and EU officials about the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership.

Because of the efforts of Greenpeace Netherlands, it is now possible for the wider public to see details of these talks, and in short there is clear evidence that under the TTIP any government-owned body could be ‘privatised or dismantled entirely.’

In the case of the United Kingdom in particular, government bodies do not get any bigger than the National Health Service.

According to The Express:

The documents, obtained by Greenpeace Netherlands, include a US proposal to have a committee with representatives from Washington and Brussels to meet each year “to review state-owned enterprises and monopolies” which would include the NHS.

We love the use of the word ‘could’ when it comes to reporting anything about the European Union, because we know that this is the sort of organisation where ‘could’ becomes ‘will’ all too often.

We accept that dismantling the NHS under the rule of the European Union is a vague possibility that would require a number of steps to take place first, but the fact remains that our NHS is too precious and valued to be exposed to even tiny risks such as these.

It all shows that Britain made the right decision in June 2016.

Say what you like about big red buses making NHS-related promises, but as far as we are concerned if TTIP poses even the tiniest threat to our health service, we are best WELL out of it.

One other part of the Express article does demand further investigation:

The committee would meet annually and would not be guaranteed a representative from Britain. 

But it would still be able to review state-run services in this country. Its duties would include checking that state services do not “distort” the market. 

With our future now clearly outside of the European Union, would any sort of EU-US trade group be able to pass judgement on how our NHS is affecting the global marketplace?

What sort of influence would they be able to exert upon our post-Brexit trading partners in this manner, EU and otherwise?

Do we as a nation have the cojones go just tell them to mind their own bloody business? I hope so …

Corbyn accused of ‘BUYING young votes’ with this new £13 billion policy

0

Jeremy Corbyn has revealed his parties latest policy which he hopes will gain even more votes from young people.

Labour will offer under 25s a handout to help with travel costs – a pledge which could cost taxpayers up to £13billion.

It estimates its policy would cost £1.4bn each year by the end of a five-year parliament.

This is a clear bribe to young voters, many of whom use trains and drive cars.

Once again, somehow Labour will have to cough up £1.4 billion each year, I wonder where that money will come from *cough* MORE TAX *cough*.

Corbyn declared that “young people deserve a break” from Tory austerity and claim scrapping bus tickets will help them save on “travel to work, to study and to visit friends”.

Transport Minister Nusrat Ghani said: “This is yet another promise from Labour that they have no real ability to deliver.

“Labour admit themselves this could cost up to £13billion, meaning extra borrowing with working people paying the price.

“Last election Labour promised to pay off student debt if elected and then admitted it would actually cost too much to do. Now they’re bribing young people again with yet another empty promise.”

TaxPayers Alliance Cheif Executive said:

“Bus subsidies already run into the billions, costing each household £80 a year.

“Why on earth should 25-year-old taxpayers on minimum wage subsidise 24-year-old bankers to nip between meetings and lunches in the City?

“This is just another example of politicians trying to bribe people with their own money and the public should see through such shameless policies.”

Labour voters are furious with Boris’s controversial comment about Corbyn

Boris Johnson accused Jeremy Corbyn of refusing to “unequivocally” blame the Russian state, describing him as “the Kremlin’s useful idiot”.

It’s clear that the Tories, especially Boris Johnson are trying to slam Labour and it’s leader, Mr Corbyn, over their response to the Russian attack and it seems to be working.

Labour has plunged 5 points since the attack took place and today Mr Johnson once again lashed out at Corbyn.

Mr Johnson said the Russian government and state-owned media had invented 29 theories about the attack.

“There is only one thing that gives the Kremlin succour and lends false credibility to its propaganda onslaught. That is when politicians from the targeted countries join in,” Mr Johnson said.

“Sadly, I am driven to the conclusion that Jeremy Corbyn has joined this effort …Truly he is the Kremlin’s useful idiot”.

Communities Secretary Sajid Javid said: “There’s no doubt when it comes up against this issue with Russia that we are having, this very serious issue, that Jeremy Corbyn has let the British people down.”

Nick Hurd said: “I feel very strongly that Jeremy Corbyn has been insufficiently clear in his condemnation of Russia.”

Speaking to the BBC on Sunday, Shadow Education Secretary Angela Rayner said: “Boris Johnson is the government’s useful idiot because what he’s done is create a situation where he has contradicted the evidence and overstepped the mark.

“Porton Down have been absolutely clear that they didn’t say what Boris Johnson said.” She said that Mr Johnson had “driven a wedge for the Russians to say there are questions on the evidence.”

“I think that is really dangerous, that we have got a foreign secretary that undermines his own government’s position.”

Alternative Union Flag designs submitted if Scotland leaves the UK after Brexit

0

The SNP argues that Scotland voted to stay in the European Union and claim that many who voted ‘NO’ for independence from the UK were under the assumption that voting that way would result in continued EU membership.

In a hypothetical situation(which could potentially play out) that Scotland decides to leave the UK through a second independence referendum once the UK leaves the EU the question arises as to what the Union Flag would look like minus Scotlands input.

11 designs were submitted to the BBC magazine which can all be seen below with brief explanations of the design.

“The first design (above) strips out the blue field of the Scottish flag, replacing it with black, and sees the white bands turn a shade of yellow – intended to honour the flag of Wales’ patron saint, St David (a yellow cross on a black field).”

“The second (above) seeks to address the same issue, but by borrowing elements of Wales’ current national flag – the field of green and white that lies behind its red dragon.”

“The third (above) is a more modern interpretation of the design, including the colours of St David’s flag and retaining the Scottish blue – to reflect the fact that Scotland would continue to share the British monarchy.”

“Using the same principle, the fourth removes the white of St Andrew’s saltire and imposes a crown and Royal Standard – including England’s three lions, the red Scottish lion and the harp, a national symbol of Wales as well as Ireland.”

“The fifth design (above) removes the Scottish elements from the flag entirely, and adds the Royal Coat of Arms, surrounded by a garland of items symbolic of the Commonwealth nations.”

Facebook founder CONFRONTED over censoring right wing opinions

0

Facebook Chairman and founder, Mark Zuckerberg, has been confronted by Senator Ted Cruz over the apparent censorship by Facebook of right-wing pages and articles on the site.

Ted Cruz, a Republican Senator, slammed the Facebook boss for their apparent censorship.

“Does Facebook consider itself a neutral public forum?” Cruz asked Zuckerberg.

“Senator, we consider ourselves to be a platform for ideas,” Zuckerberg replied.

Cruz then launched a barrage of questions and examples towards the Facebook boss:

“A “Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day” page that was banned in 2012, around the time that a number of Americans were protesting the fast-food chain after its chief operating officer made comments against same-sex marriage.

Palmer Luckey, the virtual reality prodigy who parted ways with Facebooks after it was reported that he backed a pro-Trump conservative group that trafficked in anti-Hillary Clinton content.

Diamond and Silk, the outspoken Trump fangirls who were reportedly told by Facebook this month that their “content and brand” were “unsafe to the community.”

“There are a great many Americans who I would say are deeply concerned that Facebook and other tech companies are engaged in a pervasive pattern of bias and political censorship,” Cruz said.

Zuckerberg admitted that Facebook was located in “an extremely left-leaning place,” but denied Cruz’s insinuation that the bias had infiltrated the machinations of Facebook.

Mr Zuckerberg also admitted that he did not know the political orientation of support staff who work for Facebook and monitor reported posts.

David Davis issues update on Brexit deal and it’s good news

0

David Davis has issued an update on the Brexit negotiations.

The Brexit secretary today declared that the Brexit deal is 90% complete and that pressure to get the deal done by October is increasing.

“Some of it I’m not so certain on, but If I wrote on an envelope to give it to you now I could probably tell you 80-90 percent of where we’ll end up.”

“I could specify the ten percent I don’t know.

“There are a few known unknowns.”

Mr Davis said: “Some of the surprises have been on Northern Ireland.”

Discussing the change in government in the Republic of Ireland he said:

“On the other side we had a change of government, south of the border, and with quite a strong influence from Sinn Fein – and that had an impact too in terms of the approach.

“Understandable – I don’t blame them for that.

“They’ve been playing a strong political role which they haven’t done historically that I hadn’t foreseen.”

Talking about the Brexit deadline for the end of the year to allow ratifications by March, he said:

“One of the enemies in this is time.

“We have to deliver by the end of this year.

“We have to get the substance agreed by the end of the year.

“It won’t perfectly work that way but as far as possible we want to get the long-term deal in place properly.”

It certainly sounds promising that this deal is taking shape.

It’s a deal that will take the UK out of the Single Market and the Customs Union, something Labour cannot deliver.

Also, it creates an even greater chance that it will be voted down by MPs, resulting in a ‘no deal’ scenario.

 

Barnier issues Britain a Brexit WARNING

0

Barnier has warned the UK that it has 12 months to change its mind if she wishes to remain within the European Union.

Barnier declared that even if the UK wished to reverse Brexit it “would still require a unanimous decision by the 27 European governments.”

Once the UK leaves the EU in March next year it “will be irrevocably outside the EU”.

Mr Barnier said: “The negotiations resume next week but time is running out, we must finish by October to make room for ratifications”.

“We are at a key point in negotiations, right at the halfway point.

“We are slowly getting there, with stage agreements in December and March.

“But we are still not fully there and we mustn’t underestimate the difficulties tied to the remaining 25 percent on which agreement has still to be reached.”

“We must not lose sight of the fact that Brexit causes a risk in Ireland.

“It was the UK’s decision to leave the EU, but it is not obliged to leave the single market and the customs union because it is leaving the EU.

“The UK says that it wants to leave the single market because it doesn’t want to abide by the rules, and the Customs Union as they want to regain full independence on trade matters, and this is the decision that causes problems in Ireland.”

I would like to thank Mr Barnier for this warning, but politely reject his calls for us to return to your failing political and economic union.

There’s a big world out there for the UK to trade with, why should we pay to be tied down to the EU?

 

Owen Jones attempts to get Andrew Neil SACKED from the BBC

0

Owen Jones has called for the BBC to ‘explain’ Andrew Neil and for him to be ‘freed’.

Left-wing ‘journalist’ Owen Jones has demanded that the BBC explains the employment of Andrew Neil, who he believes to be biased towards the right.

Jones declared in a piece written in the Guardian that “Neil is a formidable political interviewer in many ways: forensic, unrelenting, quick-witted, sardonic. But consider the background of this former Conservative party researcher.”

Jones continued to say: “Neil’s Twitter account – which has hundreds of thousands of followers thanks to his BBC gig – is routinely used to promote rightwing causes. He uses this platform to denounce the scientific consensus on climate change, reviling what he calls “the climate mafia” and claiming that deviation from the consensus meant “the witch-finders want to burn you”.”

The article written by Mr Jones has been endorsed by Chris Williamson who was described as a ‘useful idiot’ by the Russian government.

It certainly is worrying that Owen Jones is calling for fellow journalists to be freed from their employer just because they disagree with their political views.

Owen Jones and Andrew Neil do not have the best history, as you can see from the video clip below.

Mr Jones, surely you know that Neil is supposed to question your claims when appearing on his show? There’s no point whinging if you can’t defend your own comments. Pathetic.

Brexiteer STORMS OFF BBC Daily Politics as Owen Jones slams Brexit

John Whittingdale stormed out of the Daily Politics show on the BBC as Owen Jones says Brexit is in ‘serious trouble’.

Jones told BBC’s Daily Politics: “There is a question of honesty there…”

It was at this point John Whittingdale appears to take his mic off and leave the Daily Politics studio.

Jones continues: “In the case of David Davis, he’s seemed to imply or suggest clearly there are detailed assessments.

“I have to say, if they can fit in two lever arch files then I think we’re in very serious trouble.”

BC Daily Politics tweeted: “It seems some guests just can’t wait to get out of the #bbcdp studio.

“John Whittingdale takes off his mic and is off.”

I think Mr Whittingdale did the right thing.

Who would want to listen to Owen Jones down talk Brexit?

Would you?

Barnier issues ANOTHER major demand for Britain to accept

0

Brexiteers have long feared that the European Union will attempt to tie the UK to as many standards, regulations and directives as possible after Brexit.

It seems our fears have become a reality as Barnier is now demanding that the UK agrees to European standards of environmental protection.

The Frenchman said: “In the future relationship, we should commit to no reduction to standards of environmental protection.

“The agreement of the future relationship, the UK should include a non-regression clause.

“This can be inspired by Ceta or Japan, but will need to go further. It should prevent any reduction key pre-Brexit standards.”

The Frenchman added: “This is needed to ensure the confidence of citizens and companies for the fairness of the future relationship with the UK.”

“The UK has always pushed for strong global action and high emissions reduction targets.

“We expect it will continue to set the same level of climate ambition after leaving the EU, this will also open the way for practical cooperation between us.”

Britain would also have to implement fishery policies and the Birds and Habitats Directive set by the EU.

I can’t see why the EU is forcing us to agree to these standards when the UK government could implement them ourselves with our own laws and regulations.
