The South East Alliance marching to Downing Street to demand the Prime minister invokes Article 50

Law firm which offers legal services for Muslims bombarded with Islamophobic abuse


Bosses at Carter Law Solicitors, which has a dedicated department specialising in Islamic divorces and family law, say they are 'extremely shocked at the racist reactions'


Carter Law Solicitors' website
A law firm offering divorces and family law services for Muslims has been bombarded with Islamophobic slurs following an advertising campaign on social media.
Bosses at Manchester-based Carter Law Solicitors have been forced to reply to shocking comments posted to their Facebook page following the online ad.
The company has a dedicated department specialising in Islamic divorces and family law.
Specialist Sharia Law-compliant solicitors help clients meet the requirements of their faith and UK law.
The advert reads: “Seeking advice on Islamic Family Law, Talaq or Khula? Carter Law will ensure your family matters are dealt with in a Sharia compliant way.”
One shocking reply reads: “You need to take your ISLAMIC business and go back to the country you came from.
“ISLAM has NO PLACE in OUR COUNTRY we are CHRISTIANS and will remain CHRISTIANS.”
Bosses at Carter Law replied: “Thank you for your insightful comment. We can assure that our business is neither ‘Islamic’ nor ‘Christian’, and in fact has no religious affiliation.
“We are happy to provide our services to clients of any creed.”
Google
Carter Law Solicitors are based at The Point Office, in Cheetham Hill

Another post read: “There is only one law in the UK, abide by it or get OUT.”
Bosses said: “The services we are offer aren’t about circumventing UK law. These legal services are fully compliant with the rule of UK law, but also with the beliefs of our Muslim clients for their peace of mind.
“Thank you for your valuable input, though.”
One person posted: “ONE LAW IN THIS COUNTRY.”
Another called the firm ‘traitors’.
Jack MacMichael from Carter Law said: “We were extremely shocked at the racist reactions to the ad we ran on Facebook. The commenters seem to believe that there is some sinister parallel legal system for Muslims, but the services that we’re advertising are within the bounds of the law of England and Wales.
“They simply meet the needs of observant Muslim clients.
“Carter Law believes in equality for all of our staff and clients, regardless of ethnicity or religious convictions.
“It is a shame that not every shares our ethos. We’re all entitled to an opinion, but to see such unashamedly racist comments in a public forum wasn’t a pleasant experience.”

 In many ways, Sir Philip Green is an entrepreneur of whom Britain's Jewish community should be proud...............

Green, BHS and the ethics of business

In many ways, Sir Philip Green is an entrepreneur of whom Britain's Jewish community should be proud. In 2002, when he bought Arcadia, through his family company Taverta, it was a basket-case, haemorrhaging cash.
With consummate financial management and skills in fast-fashion retailing he turned it around, restoring the great brands in the Arcadia portfolio - Topshop, Burton, Miss Selfridge, Wallace and Evans - to their former glory. It was this achievement which propelled him from perpetual commercial outsider into the billionaire class.
The Sunday Times Rich List values his family's private wealth - most of it held offshore in Monaco by his wife Tina - at £3.22bn.
Not surprisingly, Green is resentful about the hammering he is taking in the media and the House of Commons over his much criticised sale of the 88-year-old high street chain BHS and the plight of his pensioners. He has concerns that because he likes to work behind the scenes he doesn't get the credit he deserves for his philanthropic giving, often focused on the Jewish community.

Wednesday was the best night of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Joe Biden, Tim Kaine and Barack Obama testified to her greatness and goodness and readiness to be president. And all saw in the Republican Convention in Cleveland a festival of darkness and dystopia.
Nor is this unusual. For, as the saying goes, the ins “point with pride,” while the outs “view with alarm.”
Yet the clash of visions between Cleveland and Philadelphia is stark. We appear to be two separate and hostile peoples, living apart in two separate Americas.
Obama’s America is a country of all races, creeds, colors, lifestyles, a kumbayah country to be made more wonderful still when Clinton takes the helm.
The message from Cleveland: Cry the beloved country. America has lost her way. She is in peril. A new captain is needed. A new course must be set if America is to find her way home again.
Which portrayal is the truer? Which vision of America do her people believe corresponds more closely to the reality of their daily lives?
Do Americans share Philadelphia’s belief in Clinton’s greatness and in the magisterial achievements of the Obama presidency?
Let us see. Fifty-six percent of Americans believe Clinton should have been indicted; 67 percent believe she is neither trustworthy nor honest. And 75 percent of Americans think that, under Obama, the nation is headed in the wrong direction.
After Cleveland, Trump took a 62-23 lead among white high-school graduates, those who constitute a disproportionate share of our cops, firemen, soldiers and Marines – and those interred in Arlington National Cemetery.
Given that the media are mostly “progressives,” why do Americans who rely on that media hold so negative an opinion of Clinton, and reject the direction in which Obama is taking their country?
Like the reporting you see here? Sign up for free news alerts from WND.com, America’s independent news network.
Does the reality they perceive help to explain it?
Consider. Obama did inherit a disastrous economy and growth has been at or near 2 percent a year since then. But this is not the growth we knew in the Reagan era.
And what, other than the trade policies we pursued, explains the deindustrialization of America, the loss of manufacturing plants and jobs and China’s shouldering us aside to become the world’s No. 1 industrial power.
What produced Detroit and Baltimore and all those dead and dying towns in the Rust Belt?
Even Hillary Clinton, who has called TPP the “gold standard,” now rejects her husband’s NAFTA. Is this not an admission that the elites got it wrong for a quarter century?
Obama in Philadelphia celebrated our diversity.
Yet, we have seen Old Glory burned and Mexican flags flaunted this year. We have seen Black Lives Matter chant, “What do we want? Dead cops!” – then watched black racists deliver dead cops in Dallas and Baton Rouge. Is Ferguson America’s future?
From the podium in Philadelphia, we hear the word “love.” But in interviews, Democratic Party activists invoke terms of hate, such as racist, fascist, homophobe, misogynist and sexist to describe the Cleveland Republicans.
Would the party of Philadelphia accept a President Trump?
Would the party of Cleveland accept President Clinton?
Hard to believe. Divided we stand. So, where do we go?
Given the distance between the two halves of America, given the contempt in which each seems to hold the other, we can probably drop from the Pledge of Allegiance the word “indivisible,” right after the Philadelphia Democrats succeed in cutting out the words, “under God.”
We are told our allies are nervous. They should be.
Even FDR could not lead a divided nation into war. When America divided over Vietnam, Richard Nixon had to lead us out. Our division led to America’s first defeat.
In the absence of a Pearl Harbor or 9/11 attack that brings us together in patriotic rage, Americans are not going to salute the next commander in chief, and then go fight Russia in the eastern Baltic or China over some reefs or rocks in the South China Sea.
Even when we were more united during the Cold War, Ike and LBJ never considered using force to roll back Soviet invasions in Hungary and Czechoslovakia.
Our strongest ally in the Arab world, Egypt, and our NATO ally in the region, Turkey, are both descending into dictatorship. Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Yemen are bleeding profusely in sectarian and civil wars, breaking apart along tribal and religious lines.
Could a President Trump, or Clinton, rally us to stand together and send another Army of Desert Storm over there? Not likely.
Barack Obama believes the more diverse a country we become – religiously, racially, ethnically, culturally, linguistically – the greater, better and stronger a nation we become. And with his immigration policies, he has put us, perhaps irretrievably, on that road.
Yet, outside that Wells Fargo Center, where such sentiments seem to enrapture Democratic delegates, Europe, Africa, the Mideast and South Asia are all being pulled apart, right along those same fault lines.
And measured by the rhetoric of Philadelphia and Cleveland, so are we.

Dresden riots: Protesters in Germany attack refugee buses shouting 'foreigners out'

At least 31 officers were hurt in violent scuffles










Up to 1,000 protesters have clashed with police in eastern Germany in riots reportedly sparked by the arrival of 250 migrants.
Police said protesters shouting "foreigners out" and carrying banners against the "asylum flood" threw bottles and stones at busloads of asylum seekers arriving in Heidenau, near Dresden.
At least 31 officers were hurt in violent scuffles as police used tear gas to disperse crowds.
Peaceful demonstrations began after news spread that the town was welcoming a large number of refugees who are set to be housed in an empty building.
The protest was hijacked by a group of far-right radicals, many belonging to the militant National Democratic Party (NPD), considered a neo-Nazi organisation.
"After the riots, the situation is now calm," a police spokesman told Tagesspiegel online, adding it was not yet clear how many people had been injured or how many arrests had been made.
Justice Minister Heiko Maas condemned the riots on Twitter saying that Germany will "never tolerate that people are threatened and attacked in our country."

Chancellor Angela Merkel has said the influx of asylum seekers is the biggest problem Europe currently faces. Germany, which has relatively liberal asylum laws, is taking in more refugees than any other European country, many from war-torn countries like Syria and Iraq.

Sinister links of cult of Corbyn: Hardline Left-wing group backing his leadership campaign has SECRET ties to anti-Semitic organisation to boost Muslim support

  • Exposed: Corbyn backers have secret ties to anti-Semitic group
  • The 'Momentum' group used hardline fanatics as cover to deselect MPs
  • Momentum official said that she had contact with a disgraced group
  • The Muslim Public Affairs Committee (MPAC) used to to 'orchestrate' backing for the Labour leader
The hardline Left-wing group backing Jeremy Corbyn's leadership campaign has secret links with an extremist organisation accused of anti-Semitism to boost his support among Muslims, The Mail on Sunday has learned.
An official from Momentum, described as Corbyn's 'Praetorian Guard', told an undercover reporter she had indirect contact with a disgraced group called the Muslim Public Affairs Committee (MPAC) to 'orchestrate' backing for the Labour leader.
Another Momentum official suggested to our reporter to contact MPAC discreetly to garner support.
Aaron Bastani, also known as Aaron Peters, is the driving force behind Novara Media, dubbed Momentum¿s ¿armed police¿. Bastani used to organise the UK Uncut tax protests outside high street shops.
Aaron Bastani, also known as Aaron Peters, is the driving force behind Novara Media, dubbed Momentum's 'armed police'. Bastani used to organise the UK Uncut tax protests outside high street shops.
MPAC, which once publicly mocked Holocaust Remembrance Day, has been banned by the National Union of Students from university campuses for the last 12 years because of its extreme views.
Our investigation comes after repeated accusations of anti-Semitism against Labour under Mr Corbyn, who once called terrorist group Hamas 'friends'. Earlier this month, the launch of an internal Labour report into the problem descended into chaos when the Labour leader was accused of comparing Israel with Islamic State.
The disturbing new link came after a five-week investigation into Momentum by The Mail on Sunday which found that far from a 'rabble', the cult-like cadre deploys tactics far removed from the values of traditional Labour.
Today we reveal:
  • A Momentum official used a hard-line organisation called Novara Media as a cover to write a step-by-step guide on deselecting Labour MPs, authored under a false name;
  • The Left-wing activist behind Novara was a fanatic who brought chaos to Britain's high streets in a series of tax protests, before changing his name;
  • Momentum installed a secret 'mole' inside Tory HQ to spy on London Mayoral candidate Zac Goldsmith, so the Left-wingers could ambush him at events.
Message of hate: MPAC founder Asghar Bukhari donated cash to Holocaust denier David Irving, describing his views as 'The Truth'. MPAC posted the message on Holocaust Remembrance day in 2013

Publicly, Jeremy Corbyn claims to champion a new, 'kinder' politics, and Momentum, the grassroots movement which grew out of his successful leadership campaign last autumn, insists it rejects 'abusive behaviour towards MPs or anyone else'.
But inside Momentum's two London 'war rooms' this month, there was nothing 'kind' about the sentiments on display towards the 'enemy' – fellow Labour members who dare to disagree.
Our reporter was able to observe Momentum's inner workings at the two offices. One is in Holborn, provided by the Unite union, whose kingmaker general secretary Len McCluskey is Corbyn's most powerful ally; the other near Euston Station in the HQ of the Transport Salaried Staff Association.
Our reporter noticed the strong support which MPAC was lending online to Mr Corbyn's leadership campaign and raised the group with Momentum officials.
The campaign is a long summer of war 
MPAC's founder Asghar Bukhari once donated cash to Holocaust denier David Irving, describing his outrageous views as 'The Truth'. In 2013, on Holocaust Remembrance Day, MPAC posted on its Facebook page: 'Take your holocaust, roll it up nice tight then shove it up your (be creative)!'
When our reporter discussed MPAC with Momentum's London organiser Faduma Hassan, she admitted there had been contact through intermediaries, but appeared to have no concerns about the group.
Ms Hassan – pictured next to Corbyn as he launched his leadership campaign last week – said of MPAC: 'I don't know them a lot, I just deal with them whenever I need anything.' Later, asked about MPAC's support for Corbyn on its Facebook page, she added: 'I am glad they are doing it. I didn't even notice.
'That's fantastic, thank you for updating me.'
Former teacher Ms Hassan, 26, a member of Young Labour's National Committee, explained: 'You know when you work with a group of people, and you have a meeting with them… so we orchestrate things and then we let it go.'

MPAC yesterday denied there had been any contact.
On a separate occasion, Rob Lugg, 35 – Momentum's representative in Wandsworth, South London – discussed a covert relationship between the group and MPAC in comments our reporter secretly recorded.
He said of MPAC: 'I think they're definitely not like, 'Oh, we shouldn't go anywhere near them', but I don't know what the issues are particularly. But maybe there are issues that we should just investigate a bit – we might not be able to openly co-operate with each other, but that doesn't mean we can't pass each other information.'
One of the key weapons which Corbyn and Momentum deploy against their 'enemies' within the ranks of Labour MPs is the threat of deselection. A foretaste of what lies ahead came with the controversial vote over air strikes against Islamic State in Syria last December when Labour MPs who backed the bombing – in defiance of Mr Corbyn – were subjected to a vicious campaign of intimidation.
The group sent a spy in Tory headquarters 
In recent weeks, 63 MPs have stepped down from frontbench positions while 172 signed a motion of no-confidence in the leader. Last week, Mr Corbyn raised the prospect of a wholesale purge of dissidents when he announced a 'full and open' selection process in every single seat before the next General Election.
A few days earlier, our reporter watched as Momentum's national organiser, James Schneider, drilled backroom staff on how the campaign, described by a colleague as 'a long summer of war', would be waged.
He made it clear Momentum was prepared to use subterfuge and employ 'proxies' for their attacks on MPs to keep their own hands clean.
Referring to the MPs who have resigned from the Shadow Cabinet, he said: 'We have to ridicule them and embarrass them through proxies. That's the strategy.'
On TV, however, public school educated Schneider, son of a multi-millionaire, wants to present a more moderate face – hence the use of 'proxies', or third parties.
And a key proxy employed by Momentum online is Novara Media, dubbed by Momentum's treasurer Michael Chessum as 'our armed police'. Senior Momentum volunteer Sophie Nazemi added they were Momentum's 'militant wing'. The driving force behind Novara, with its multi-media platform hosting articles and videos, is one Aaron Bastani, 32, formerly known as Aaron Peters, who describes himself as a 'political commentator', but who not so long ago used to organise the chaotic UK Uncut tax protests.
Momentum activist Rob Lugg proposed a covert relationship between the group and MPAC

At the time, as our photo shows, he was keen to show off the impressive results of his hours in the gym. Bastani's website is full of glowing tributes to Corbyn, but one of the articles – a step-by-step guide to 'de-selecting Labour MPs' – was secretly written by a Momentum member and primary school teacher called James McAsh, who is the London Representative of London Young Labour. Significantly, Mr McAsh did not sign the article himself, instead using the pseudonym Eric Sim.
One of the leading opponents to Mr Corbyn in recent weeks was Labour MP Angela Eagle, who mounted a leadership bid, before giving way to colleague Owen Smith. Ms Eagle faced death threats when she first announced her candidature. A brick was thrown through her office window.
But only a few days later, our reporter heard Ms Nazemi joking that the Momentum campaign of exposing Ms Eagle's voting record would be cast as 'low-key bullying'.
Ms Nazemi, 21, said: 'What we are doing is low-key bullying for Eagle to resign.'
During the highly charged London Mayoral campaign between Tory Zac Goldsmith and Labour's Sadiq Khan, Momentum sent 'spy' Beth Foster-Ogg, 18, into Conservative HQ. Senior Momentum official Santiago Bell-Bradford, 24, said: 'We wanted to ambush him.'
An MPAC spokesman said the organisation had 'never contacted Momentum or been approached by any of its representatives'. He added the Holocaust Remembrance Day message was posted by a volunteer who was then removed.
Aaron Bastani, the co-founder of Novara Media, denied his organisation has become a propaganda wing for Momentum. He said: 'We are a news organisation, we cover them [Momentum], and if there is a story, obviously we write about them.'
A spokesman for Momentum said: 'The Mail on Sunday and Omar Wahid have exploited Momentum's enthusiastic young activists. Wahid posed as a socially awkward volunteer of limited competence.
'He was warmly welcomed and in return undermined the trust and generosity of spirit of the Momentum team. He acted in a way that appears to proximate entrapment.
'In addition he seems to have specifically targeted Muslim volunteers in what looks like an attempt to smear them and Momentum as anti-Semitic. Momentum has no relationship with MPAC.
'Faduma Hassan has had no contact with MPAC either as an individual or on behalf of Momentum.'
NWN: It was OK for Corbyn to applaud IRA bombers. But as soon as he is seen to harbour 'anti-semites', the whole of the controlled mass media bay for his blood. Yet another example of just who really control the show. The UK party system is a sham.

Health tourists jump NHS queue: Foreign patients given eye surgery while Britons wait for months 

  • Investigation reveals health tourists are jumping the queue for operations
  • At least 300 foreign patients have been offered surgery before Britons
  • Their condition has been deemed a priority and they are treated first
  • The life-changing cataract treatment costs the NHS up to £2,500 a time

Health tourists are jumping the queue ahead of NHS patients for life-changing cataract operations, an investigation has revealed.
At least 300 foreign patients flying in from countries including Nigeria and Zimbabwe have been offered surgery before British taxpayers because their condition is deemed a priority.
The treatment costs the NHS up to £2,500 a time including translation costs but many patients return home and never pay it back.
Yet they are being fast-tracked by doctors as their condition is deemed very complex and urgent, leading to lengthy delays for British patients.
Cataract surgery is the most common treatment on the NHS and 300,000 operations are performed a year, mostly on the elderly.
Yet it is being heavily rationed due to financial pressures. Figures have shown that at least half of health trusts currently ration cataract surgery and some patients have been told their vision is 'too good' even though they cannot read or write.
Some areas including parts of Greater Manchester have average waiting times of 222 days – nearly eight months – while others will now only do one eye at a time.
Cataracts occur when the lens in the eye becomes cloudy, causing problems with reading, writing and general vision, which gradually get worse. But they can be easily treated by a simple 30-minute operation to remove the affected lens and replace it with a plastic implant.
Charities have warned, however, that thousands of patients are gradually losing their sight because NHS trusts are refusing to carry out surgery.
The Daily Mail used the Freedom of Information Act to ask all 150 hospital trusts in England a series of questions about overseas patients. The replies show that in the past two years 849 overseas patients were given cataract surgery on the NHS even though they were not eligible for free care.
They included 283 who were fast-tracked to the front of the queue because doctors deemed their condition to be more urgent than others already waiting.
Only 77 trusts managed to reply to any of our questions so the true scale of the abuse is likely to be far higher. Thirteen admitted they never recovered the full costs from the patients.
Professor J Meirion Thomas, a former cancer surgeon at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London, said: 'This investigation proves again that health tourism is flourishing in the face of the feeble efforts of the Department of Health.
'Why should patients who are not eligible for free NHS care be allowed treatment at a rock-bottom price?'
Foreign patients have been offered life-changing cataract operations ahead of British taxpayers because their condition is deemed a priority

He said government research showed that 84 per cent of health tourists never paid their debts.
Conservative MP Peter Bone said: 'We really have to have a system which puts British people first.' Andrew Percy, another Tory MP, said: 'The NHS is facing extreme pressures and its unacceptable that money is being spent on treatment for people that are ineligible.'
Last August the Daily Mail Investigations Unit revealed that the vast scale of health tourism in the NHS was being covered up by hospital bosses.
NHS whistleblowers said they are told to disguise the true number abusing the health service by bosses who 'don't want to know' – and are branded racist if they speak out.
By law, only patients who are 'ordinarily resident' in the UK – and have lived here for at least six months – are eligible for free treatment, operations and scans. But lifesaving procedures, maternity care, A&E treatment and GP services are free for all.
Ministers have repeatedly promised to crack down on health tourism amid accusations that the NHS is too lax compared with other EU countries.
They twice unveiled proposals to start charging foreign patients in A&E although they are still 'consulting' on the plans and there is no clear start date.

I HAD TO WAIT FOR TWO YEARS, SAYS 83-YEAR-OLD GRANDMOTHER

Bernice Cowles waited two years for cataract treatment on the NHS after being told her failing sight was too good.
In 2013, the 83-year-old grandmother, pictured, was caring full-time for her husband William, who has since died, and struggled to read the small writing on his prescriptions without a magnifying glass. 
She was referred for an operation in April 2015 to repair her left eye, which was more severely affected. But this was only after a routine sight test revealed her vision was so poor that it met the NHS's strict eligibility criteria.
Mrs Cowles, from West Horndon, Essex, said the operation was 'very successful' – and she hoped to have the other eye operated on soon.
Yet most other countries in the EU demand to see patients' identity cards or passports before offering them treatment.
The Mail was alerted to the problem by a whistleblower from a hospital whose role is to charge foreign patients.
She said many patients, mainly from Nigeria and Zimbabwe, are brought in by relatives living here. The relatives then take them for eye tests by opticians, who refer them to hospital, where doctors carry out cataract surgery immediately. But they do not demand money beforehand.
The whistleblower said that between five and 15 overseas patients arrive at her hospital a week needing cataract treatment. 'We rarely get the money back,' she said. 'They tend to need very complex procedures. We have to use a translation service as well and it's a huge cost.'
The Department of Health said: 'This Government is determined to make sure our NHS isn't abused – we were the first to introduce tough measures to clamp down on migrants accessing NHS hospitals and are going further with plans to extend charging to A&E and other services, helping the NHS to recover up to £500million a year by 2018.'

Boss of property website Zoopla revealed to be behind Brexit legal action bid


Zoopla boss Alex Chesterman emailed other firms to ask for support in mounting a legal challenge
Alex Chesterman, chief executive of online property group Zoopla, has been revealed as one of the names behind a legal challenge to Brexit.
London law firm Mishcon de Reya announced over the weekend that it was putting together a team who could mount a legal challenge if the government kicked off the Article 50 process - which would see the UK officially leave the EU - without first securing an act of parliament. The firm said it was acting on behalf of a number of an unnamed group of clients.

Outrage as war crimes prosecutors say Tony Blair will not be investigated over Chilcot's Iraq war report – but British soldiers could be

Tony Blair
Tony Blair: war crimes prosecutors say he won't face inquiry
Prosecutors at the International Criminal Court will examine the Chilcot report for evidence of abuse and torture by British soldiers but have already ruled out putting Tony Blair on trial for war crimes, The Telegraph can disclose.
The decision has outraged families of troops killed in Iraq who blame Mr Blair for engineering the war.
Sir John Chilcot’s report will finally be published on Wednesday and is expected to strongly criticise Mr Blair’s role in the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.
But in an official statement to the Telegraph, the International Criminal Court (ICC) said its prosecutors would comb through the 2.3 million word report for evidence of war crimes committed by British troops but that decision to go to war remained outside its remit.

It means individual soldiers could be prosecuted for war crimes but not Mr Blair.
The ICC, based in the Hague, has begun a 'preliminary examination’ of claims of torture and abuse by British soldiers, after receiving a dossier from human rights lawyers acting for alleged Iraqi victims.
In the statement, the Office of the Prosecutor at the ICC said: “We will take note of the Chilcot report when released in the context of its ongoing preliminary examination work concerning Iraq/UK.
“A preliminary examination is not an investigation but a process aimed at determining whether reasonable basis exist to open an investigation.
“As already indicated by the Office in 2006, the 'decision by the UK to go to war in Iraq falls outside the Court’s jurisdiction’.”
The ICC prosecutor’s office said the ICC was looking at introducing a “crime of aggression” which would cover illegal invasions but that “has not yet crystalised and in any event, will not apply retroactively”.
Sir John Chilcot
Sir John Chilcot, chairman of the Iraq Inquiry
Grieving relatives condemned the ICC’s stance. Roger Bacon, whose son Matt Bacon, a major in the Intelligence Corps, was killed in a roadside bomb in 2005, said: “It is outrageous. It is double standards. These soldiers have gone out to do their best for us and here they are being hounded and yet the guy who took them there is not being looked at. That is completely wrong and disgusting.”
Mr Bacon, a retired police officer, added: “It is bad enough the ICC are examining these allegations of abuse in the first place but to use the Chilcot report to further their investigation does not seem right at all particularly if they are not going to look at Blair.”
Reg Keys, whose son Tom was one of six Royal Military Police slaughtered at Majar al-Kabir in 2003, said: “The ICC should be using the Chilcot report as a basis for a legal action against Tony Blair not as ammunition against British soldiers for alleged abuse.”
Mr Keys, who famously stood against Mr Blair in the 2005 election, added: “It makes me very angry. They don’t call him Teflon Tony for nothing.”
The Chilcot report is expected to conclude that Mr Blair’s government misled the public over the presence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq before launching what many people still believe was an illegal war.
The Crown Prosecution Service has twice considered a case against Mr Blair but on both occasions decided to take no action.
But Mr Blair may also face legal action from families, who may try to sue him for 'misfeasance in public office” or else negligence on the grounds he exceeded his powers and that led to mass casualties.
If successful such a legal action could lead to a huge award of damages against Mr Blair.
Matthew Jury, managing partner of McCue & Partners, lawyers for the bereaved families of British soldiers killed in Iraq, said: “It’s a little premature to be talking about prosecutions.  The families’ current concern is that the Inquiry has properly discharged its duties.  We shall find out on Wednesday.
“Only after a full and unhurried examination of the reports contents and conclusions, will the families decide what further steps should be taken.  However, if it is determined that government officials have acted unlawfully, the families will consider taking whatever action is appropriate and necessary.”
Relatives are also angered they will be given just three to digest the vast Chilcot report before it is made public while ministers, it is understood, will receive the report 24 hours in advance.
“This is just another example of politics trumping compassion. The families deserve better,” said Mr Jury.
The publication of the report, seven years after the Iraq Inquiry began, will also lead to renewed attempts by MPs, led by former SNP leader Alex Salmond, to resurrect attempts to impeach Mr Blair.
In an email to MPs sent last month, Mr Salmond wrote: “If, as I believe, that Chilcot finds that there was a prior commitment from Blair to [George] Bush at Crawford Ranch [President Bush’s Texas home] in 2002 that would provide the reason for pursuing the matter further.”
Sir David Amess, a Tory backbencher who received an email from Mr Salmond asking for his help, said: “We’re going to go for it. When the Chilcot report is published, if it’s proved that Tony Blair misled everyone, I personally am determined to see justice prevail and to see him impeached.”
Mr Blair has repeatedly said that he wanted to use Chilcot to address his critics. In an interview in the United States last October, he apologised for wrong intelligence on weapons and for “some of the mistakes in planning” in the run up to the 2003 invasion. However he defended the military action and the removal of Saddam Hussein.
A spokeswoman for Mr Blair said the former prime minister had “made his position clear” and that his office “would not be giving a running commentary” prior to publication. “It is hard for us to say anything when we have not seen the report,” said the spokeswoman.

NWN: So once again we see our troops in danger of prosecution, when the people who sent them in the first place like the traitor Blair will get off 'scot free'.

Theresa May: ‘We’ll always support Israeli defence’

Home Secretary Theresa May: “Without its Jews, Britain would not be Britain 

 

What a bag of shit ! 

All of them are 100 % in favour of Israel. 

None of them are 100 % pro- British.

Stop squabbling, grow up - and get on with Brexit: RICHARD LITTLEJOHN says the political class's behaviour since the referendum vote has bordered on the clinically insane 

The entire political class have taken leave of their senses. Both during the referendum campaign and since the result was announced, their behaviour has bordered on the clinically insane.
Of course, you should never underestimate their uncanny ability to make everything about them. But the unedifying orgy of self-indulgence we have seen over the past week has plumbed new depths of cynicism and opportunism.
Yesterday's Tory leadership contest fiasco resembled a Whitehall farce scripted by David Chase, the man who created The Sopranos. If you ever doubted that politicians are an alien race apart, then here was conclusive proof.
Following David Cameron's inevitable resignation after his humiliating defeat at the ballot box, the Conservative Party in Parliament decided that the best response was to form a circular firing squad.

Instead of sober reflection, they embarked on an incestuous bout of infighting and jockeying for position, as the real world looked on aghast.
As I wrote on Tuesday, only inside the Westminster village could anyone in their right mind interpret the most momentous decision the British people have taken in half a century as a clear message that: What we want is Stephen Crabb.
Yet here was someone most people have never heard of being touted seriously as the saviour of the nation, despite the fact that he was on the losing side in the referendum argument.
   
Crabb is now one of five names that will go forward to Tory MPs before the field is whittled down to two and laid before the wider membership.
Home Secretary Theresa May is the odds-on favourite.
When 17,410,742 people put their cross in the Leave box a week ago, how many of them thought that what they were really voting for was to install Mother Theresa as Prime Minister?
After all, she had rarely been seen in public for the past five months, having spent the referendum campaign hiding behind the sofa.
Yet now, if the polls and the bookies are to be believed, she will be in overall charge of the negotiations to extricate Britain from the EU — something she didn't believe in.
May announced her candidacy in a tartan trouser suit that made her look like one of the Bay City Rollers — an outfit presumably intended to reassure voters north of the border that she would protect Scotland's best interests, too.
The one name conspicuously missing from the list was the early front-runner Boris Johnson, who withdrew from the fray after being comprehensively shafted by his Leave colleague Michael Gove. During the campaign, the two men had been joined at the hip and it was assumed that they'd run on a joint ticket.
The first we knew of a rift between them was when an explosive private email from Gove's wife, Mail columnist Sarah Vine, fell into the wrong hands and was leaked to Sky News.
Even so, no one predicted that Gove would chuck his own hat into the ring, especially as he had once said that he was prepared to write 'on parchment in my own blood' a guarantee that he did not want to lead his party or become Prime Minister.
It was a promise he restated during one of the televised referendum debates. Then again, he is a politician, so we shouldn't be too surprised that he's gone back on his word. They all do.
At heart, every MP dreams of making it to No 10. They're all living in their own movie. Politicians don't have friends in any meaningful sense, just disposable alliances. Their principles are infinitely flexible when it comes to career advancement.
They talk frequently of loyalty, but none of them actually means it.
The Goves and the Camerons were supposed to be bosom buddies, but that didn't stop Call Me Dave sacking Gove from the education department to appease the teaching unions and the so-called 'Blob'. 
In return, Gove knifed Cameron over Europe and now he's knifed his ex-New Best Friend Boris, too.
Gove may be an impeccably mannered chap, but he's clearly a student of the Cosa Nostra and now appears to fancy making the leap from consigliere to Godfather. Be careful what you wish for, Michael.
As for Boris, he has suffered the same fate as his hero Winston Churchill, who was also discarded immediately after his finest hour.

Whether, like Churchill, he can make a comeback remains to be seen. But after a brilliant campaign, Boris didn't do himself any favours by deciding to lay out his vision of the road ahead in his newspaper column, rather than in public — and appeared to back-pedal on his promise that a Leave vote would drastically reduce immigration.
Nevertheless, he had earned his crack at the leadership and the conspiracy to keep him off the ballot paper is yet another affront to democracy. So is the suggestion that May and Gove might stitch up a deal to prevent party members even getting a vote on who becomes the next leader and occupant of Downing Street.
Gove may be an impeccably mannered chap, but he's clearly a student of the Cosa Nostra and now appears to fancy making the leap from consigliere to Godfather.
There have been far too many affronts to democracy over the past week, particularly from resentful Remainers who have howled petulantly from the rooftops about the electorate stupidly voting the 'wrong' way.
The notion that they will still try to scupper Brexit, either in Parliament, by holding a second referendum or by trying to force a General Election, is monstrous.
I suppose I should mention the turmoil in the Labour Party, which has also suffered a nervous breakdown. Labour MPs have interpreted the Leave vote as an opportunity to force Jeremy Corbyn to resign and replace him with one of the Eagles.
Not that I care what happens to him, or who comes next, but it should be pointed out that all along Corbyn has shown little enthusiasm for the EU and if he did, as reported, vote to Leave in the privacy of the polling booth, then he was more in touch with the mood of the British people than 80 per cent of MPs from all parties at Westminster.
And there's the rub. When it came to the EU, the overwhelming majority of the political class — including the woman who may well become our next Prime Minister — were on the wrong side of history and at odds with the people they are supposed to represent.
We have had a week of lunacy, whining and navel-gazing at Westminster, time which should have been devoted to working out how quickly the will of the people could be implemented in an orderly fashion

Where's the leadership from anyone? Certainly Theresa was missing in action during the campaign. Most of the Cabinet backed Remain and went along with Cameron and Osborne's disgraceful efforts to bully and terrify people into doing as they were told.
There certainly aren't any outstanding or obvious leaders on the Tory ballot paper, nor within Labour's ranks either.
Once again the political class — not that they've shown much class lately — have been obsessed with settling their own petty scores, squabbling among themselves and advancing their own careers rather than getting on with the job in hand.
Lest they need reminding, the British people have just given them a clear mandate to get Britain out of the anti-democratic, corrupt EU racket. That's what they should be concentrating on right now.
Instead, we have had a week of lunacy, whining and navel-gazing at Westminster, time which should have been devoted to working out how quickly the will of the people could be implemented in an orderly fashion.
They also need reminding that this wasn't just a rejection of the EU, it was a revolt against the entire political class, whose antics over the past week have been an insult to the magnificent exercise in popular democracy we have just experienced.
And unless they get the message, this revolt won't be the last.

Increase in number of hate incidents reported to GMP

There has been an increase in the number of hate incidents reported to Greater Manchester Police.

Deputy Chief Constable Ian Pilling said: “While we cannot categorically say whether the increase is related to any particular event, I wish to make it absolutely clear that all hate crime is unacceptable and even a small increase is of concern to us. It is really important that we have an accurate picture of hate crime in Greater Manchester so that we can deal with it in the most effective way possible.

“I now want to make a wider appeal to the people of Greater Manchester – where you see it, report it.

“We suspect that the majority of hate crimes, like several crime types, go unreported, which is why it’s vital that people tell us about what has happened to them.
"I would urge anyone with mobile footage of suspected hate crimes to report it to the police rather than just share it on social media platforms – unless police officers are made aware they cannot investigate it and catch offenders.

“Many people in our communities will be feeling anxious right now as a result of the perception that a small number of people are using recent events to give ill-judged legitimacy to their hate-filled views.

"What’s happening in Greater Manchester appears to reflect a national picture that has emerged in recent days. True Vision, the national online reporting site, has told us they have received some disgraceful examples of racial abuse around the country this week.

"We urge anyone who experiences this behaviour to report it by calling the police on 101 or using the True Vision website (www.report-it.org.uk). You can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. In an emergency, always dial 999.”

NWN: Greater Manchester Police (GMP) treat selective 'hate' crimes very seriously. GMP like many other Police forces in the UK however, don't treat rapes, grooming and paedophilia very seriously at all.
The Battle of the Somme - 1st July 1916                    100 years ago 

On July 1, 1916 at 7:28 A.M. the Allies launched the largest offensive of the war. What would soon be the bloodiest and most tragic single day in British Military history. July 1, 1916 the opening day of Somme.

By 12:30 P.M. over 50,000 of Britain's soldiers were dead or wounded..

At 0728 on 1st July 2016 a two minutes silence will be observed. The end of the two minutes silence will be signalled by whistles and a 100 gun salute in London.
