What possible interest could the USA have in offering asylum to Stephen Yaxley-Lennon?
The former English Defence League leader, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, could face jail again for interfering with the trial of an Asian sex gang at Leeds Crown Court in May 2018. Two High Court judges found him guilty of contempt of court at the Old Bailey last week – which carries up to two years in jail – for ‘aggressively confronting and filming’ defendants while the jury considered its verdicts.
Dame Victoria Sharp said in a ruling published today: ‘His words had a clear tendency to encourage unlawful physical or verbal aggression towards identifiable targets. Harassment of the kind he was describing could not be justified’.
Ahead of the sentencing on Thursday, Robinson pleaded with President Trump to let him live in America, saying being sent to prison in the UK would be like a ‘death sentence’.
He told the far-right InfoWars website: ‘I beg Donald Trump, I beg the American government, to look at my case. I need evacuation from this country because dark forces are at work.
‘This is a direct appeal on behalf of my family – we love the United States, I have no future here [in Britain]. The country has fallen.’
The prosecution is a show trial, of course, meant to intimidate real English nationalists. But Tommy Robinson is not an English nationalist, he’s the working-class equivalent of a Ben Shapiro or Jordan Peterson. He is a cuck and a shill, and let’s face it, the USA has a sufficient supply of both at the moment.
I don’t recall old Tommy calling himself an American revolutionary, but rather, a Zionist. Let him turn to Israel if he wants out of Great Britain.
Who do the British neoliberals think they are fooling when they hypocritically condemn China for insufficiently respecting democracy in Hong Kong?
The UK has been accused of brazen hypocrisy after raising concerns about the state of democracy and human rights in Hong Kong, a former British colony once ruled by unelected colonial governors. Beijing denounced British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt as “shameless,” after Hunt declared that the UK would “stand behind the people of Hong Kong in defense of [their] freedoms” amid protests over a controversial extradition law with China.
The British haven’t always been so concerned about “protecting democracy” in Hong Kong, however. Before the city was handed over to China in 1997, Hong Kong was a British colony and administered by an unelected, and always British, governor.
The glaring double-standard is clearly hypocritical, former US diplomat Jim Jatras told RT.
I’m sad to say that not only the British but the American and most other Western governments – ‘hypocrisy’ should be part of the official title of how they conduct their affairs, how they deal with human rights issues at home, and then how they will use any pretext to support things like color revolutions.
The British are currently ruled by the unelected European Commission and they never allowed elections in Hong Kong while they ruled it. Why on Earth should China, or anyone else, pay any attention to their pious virtue-signaling now?
The desperate Remain Speaker is demonstrating that there is no law in the current British Parliament:
Remainer MPs will mount an all-out bid to block No Deal today after Speaker John Bercow bent parliamentary rules to help them.
A cross-party motion being voted on this afternoon would effectively seize control from the government – and pave the way for a ban on the UK leaving without an agreement.
The Labour-backed move is seemingly timed to coincide with Boris Johnson’s Tory leadership campaign launch – after he vowed to force through Brexit by the end of October at all costs.
Mr Bercow has been accused of ‘constitutional vandalism’ for allowing the Opposition to table a business motion – which can usually only be done by the government.
If it is passed, a Bill will be brought forward within weeks that could make it illegal to suspend parliament to force a No Deal – a proposal mooted by some Tory hopefuls. Rebels say they could broaden the legislation to ban crashing out altogether.
The move to wrest control of Parliamentary business from the Government has the support of former Cabinet minister Sir Oliver Letwin, as well as all the Liberal Democrats, SNP and Greens.
One would have thought that the Members of Parliament would have learned the importance of working within the confines of the law from the assassination of Labour MP Jo Cox in 2016. If the politicians refuse to follow the law, why on Earth would they expect the people to do so?
Boris Johnson should put a stop to this Parliamentary lawlessness as soon as he becomes the Conservative Party leader by forging a Leave alliance with Nigel Farage, then calling for a General Election that would be followed by a Brexit-Conservative parliament.
UPDATE: the unlawful Remainer gambit to block No Deal Brexit failed anyhow, 309-298.
So much for Remainer Tory threats that No Deal Brexit meant Jeremy Corbyn becoming Prime Minister. The first-past-the-post system might actually demolish the Conservative Party to the benefit of Niles Farage and the Brexit Party. And it’s likely that the polls actually underestimate the growing support for Farage. As I’ve often noted in the U.S. context, the so-called “pragmatism” of the moderate Right is often the exact opposite of pragmatic and only assures defeat.
I won’t be terribly surprised if the Republican Party eventually suffers a similar fate if the pro-immigration establishment retains control of the party. I think it is reasonably safe to assume that the national vote share of the Conservative Party in the UK in general elections is going to go the way of its vote share in the European elections if it does not learn that the voters eventually lose their faith in a party which fails to deliver on its most important promises.
Daniel Hannan gets it, but after listening to the Conservative MP who is currently the Defence Minister speak last night, it is obvious that many in the Conservative establishment don’t. They are still declaring No Deal out of bounds even as the people are beating them into extinction due to their refusal to take Britain out of the EU without a terrible deal imposed on them by the EU leaders. The fact that the Tories must listen to the British electorate doesn’t mean they will do so, any more than Republicans appear willing to listen to the US electorate about its complete lack of interest in fighting wars on behalf of Israel.
The Conservative Party in the UK is melting down due to its faithlessness and refusal to deliver the Brexit for which the people voted. They’ll be punished tomorrow in the European elections that should never have taken place, and hopefully to a similar extent in the next general election.
This Sussex Sparkles thing has turned out to be more interesting than Suits ever was:
Darling, actions speak louder than words. A more united family than ever is exposing your lies. Your house of cards is collapsing. You will get the Tower instead of the paycheck!
Darling, very telling that you are using your old US cellphone number again lately. By the way the 9 months are over already. Are you expecting an elephant or still looking for a way out where no way out is?
9 months are over! Your husband is on his family’s side! No paycheck! Your threats are making them laugh! They have more against you and you are alone! And now? Game over! Checkmate!
Darling, so you are sitting there alone and humiliated in your house of glass with cracks everywhere. People have seen that the rumours became true. Lord Watchdog has shut you down!
Translation: Megan Markles is a complete trainwreck who faked her pregnancy by using a surrogate, but is trying to extort the British Royal Family into some sort of financial settlement before the whole scheme comes crashing down.
I have absolutely no idea what may or may not be true, but I am still astonished that the Queen permitted Prince Harry to marry the woman in the first place. My theory is that they were first married in secret in the United States and then presented the Queen with a fait accompli.
If any of this is true, it strikes me as a very, very bad idea and the very, very wrong people with whom to play this kind of game. One would tend to expect a tragic death in childbirth after delivering a stillborn child.
Seriously, though, where is the baby? And why is Prince Harry off to the Netherlands?
Nationalists across Europe are learning that the ideological gap is smaller and easier to bridge than the globalist gap, as the British follow the Italian lead:
As a left-wing campaigner for 35 years, I’ve been arrested on picket lines, led anti-imperialist demonstrations and spoken at anti-deportation protests outside police stations. I’ve made speeches at street rallies, in prisons and universities and at pubs.
Yet yesterday, in an unexpected twist of events, I found myself sitting next to Nigel Farage, announcing my intention to stand as a candidate for his Brexit Party in the European elections on May 23….
Be in no doubt, this is a watershed moment for democracy. It’s been almost three years since 17.4 million people voted to Leave the EU – the largest popular mandate in British political history. But today, thanks to an ineffective Government and a cabal of staunchly Remain-supporting MPs, we remain shackled to Brussels. It is almost as if a referendum was never held.
Now, with countless MPs and members of the unelected House of Lords lining up to try to overturn the decision of the British people, democratic principles matter more than old party allegiances.
That hero of the Labour movement, Tony Benn, whose criticisms of the Brussels machine would make Jeremy Corbyn’s Islington Set shriek with disgust, once said ‘democracy is the most revolutionary thing in the world’.
How right he was. Without democracy, we are voiceless subjects. But with it, we are citizens armed with the power to change our destinies.
With every political party on the brink of bottling Brexit, now is the time to decide whether we want to be subjects or citizens; whether we want to defy the millions of British voters who opted for Brexit or show solidarity with the ordinary people who look on aghast at the cavalier way in which their voices are being expunged.
I’ll be damned if the Establishment should get away with this act of vote-vandalism.
The Brexit Party can win, not only in the European elections, but in the next national elections. This is a strategic replay of the left-right nationalist alliance between La Lega and Movimento Cinque Stelle that took power in Italy.
The American nationalist Right should follow a similar strategy.
A British Monarch watcher believes Prince William is now the power behind the throne:
Harry’s announcement of a glitzy TV series with Oprah Winfrey and Apple appears to have been enough to spur his brother William into action.
The heir to the throne seems to have spent a lifetime patching things up for his younger brother, but has finally run out of patience. (The role of Harry’s PR Sara Latham in spreading rumors about William’s marriage was probably a factor as well.)
It was William’s decision to send Harry and Meghan away, the Times of London story made clear, even though the person who probably should have been taking charge of the situation was his father, Prince Charles.
Charles has supposedly been running daily operations since his father Philip’s formal retirement in 2017, Philip having long been the power behind the throne for the Queen. But Charles has been making a hash of things, before, during, and after Harry and Meghan’s wedding. His mother doesn’t respect him, and neither do his sons. Charles seems to be a likeable old goat who is fun at a party, but he doesn’t have the spine or the occasional cruelty required for the big job.
If this Africa banishment is remembered a few decades from now, like the Duke and Duchess of Windsor’s exile to the Bahamas, it will probably be remembered as the time when William came into his own.
William appears to be a bit of a Shakespearean figure at the moment: he never wanted the job of King, having seen the pressures of royalty contribute to the death of his mother. Yet now he’s been forced to take it on to avoid further damage to the monarchy, pushing aside his father and sending his once-beloved brother away.
It’s a good start. Now do Brexit!
The British Parliament illustrates the complete failure of representative democracy:
A first attempt by MPs to find a consensus route forward for Brexit has ended in deadlock and confusion after the Commons rejected every option put forward, albeit with a near-even split on the idea of joining a customs union.
Oliver Letwin, the veteran Conservative MP who led the process which allowed backbenchers to seize control of the order paper to hold a series of indicative votes, said the results were “disappointing” but he hoped a new round of votes would be held on Monday.
Brexit: all eight indicative vote options defeated by MPs – live news
The Speaker, John Bercow, said he would allow this to take place, prompting shouts of protests from many MPs.
The Brexit secretary, Stephen Barclay, said the results strengthened the government’s view that Theresa May’s Brexit deal was the best and only way forward.
On the lack of a majority for any of the eight alternatives put to the vote on Wednesday, he said: “It demonstrates that there is not easy option here, that there is no easy way forward.”
How fortunate that direct democracy has already settled the matter: leave with no deal.
