Other Items That Caught Our Eye This Week - w/e 7 July

by The Participator – 9 Jul 2018

Crowdfund link: Giant Sadiq Khan 'baby balloon to fly over London

BREAKING – Monday 9th David Davis resigns ….


MAY’S BREXIT DEAL PROPOSAL SPARKS SERIOUS DISQUIET

Boris Johnson reportedly called the deal “a big turd” and backbench Tories are reportedly on the verge of triggering a vote of no confidence in Theresa May. From Breitbart:

MPs Demanding ‘No Confidence’ Vote After May’s Brexit Sell-out, Boris Calls Deal ‘A Big Turd’

Probably the biggest question for a lot of people who voted for Brexit is the question of free movement. Rumours from some sections of the press suggested that free movement with the EU (no visas required) would continue after Brexit. May denied this, from the Express:

‘Free movement is going to END’ May vows as she braces for Brexit backlash over EU fudge

However also looming large are the question of trade deals, particularly with the US, and the question of the ECJ. David Davis apparently called May’s customs plan “unworkable. From the Express:

‘For once Davis is right!’ Surprise as ‘Europeans BACK Brexit negotiator’ on customs plan


TOMMY ROBINSON APPEAL DELAYED BY THE STATE

From Rebel Media:

Tommy Robinson Appeal Delayed By The State

Criticisms were made after the appeal judge Lord Leveson voiced an opinion before the appeal. From Kipper Central:

EXCLUSIVE: Tommy’s Appeal Judge Declares Tommy Guilty BEFORE Appeal


ARTICLE 13 COPYRIGHT LAW WAS REJECTED

The good news – Article 13 was rejected. From the BBC:

MEPs reject controversial copyright law

The bad news – they’re coming back to it in September.


CENSORSHIP OF “FAKE NEWS” IN FRANCE

From Breitbart:

Critics Blast New French Laws Censoring ‘Fake News’


LABOUR’S NEW GUIDELINES ON ANTI-SEMITISM

Harry’s Place had a few thoughts on Labour’s new guidelines on anti-semitism:

A few thoughts on Labour’s new guidelines on antisemitism


MIGRANT CRISIS IN GERMANY

It was difficult trying to keep up with developments in Germany this week, one minute it seemed as if an agreement on the migrant crisis had been reached, but the next it seemed not. From Vlad Tepes:

Germany: Agreement Between Merkel and Seehofer


MIGRANT CRISIS IN ITALY

Another scene showing a certain lack of respect for law and order in Italy:

Illegal "Refugees" in Italy are now trashing public places as they do not approve of the new Italian governments plans to deport them.

Tourists Film the invaders smashing & looting a local market

Liberal "Media" labeled the Italian Gov't "racist' for deporting these criminals! pic.twitter.com/pYqQvvJBze

Video footage included in the link above of the damage showing migrants throwing objects at a van window, debris strewn all around the market. We fear the 500,000 migrants that Italy is planning to deport are not going to go quietly.


MIGRANT CRISIS IN FRANCE

From the Daily Telegraph:

Illegal migrants in Paris suburb soar to 400,000 as hundreds of migrant children sleep on streets


RIOTS IN NANTES

From Voice of Europe:

Fourth night of anarchy in French city: Rioting spreads to more suburbs

Well, rioting in France these days, c’est normal.


SANITY CRISIS IN SCOTLAND

The Scottish Sun reports on the appointment of the new justice secretary:

‘FRESH TALENT’ Humza Yousaf appointed Justice Secretary as Nicola Sturgeon reshuffles SNP’s Scottish Government cabinet

Back in 2014 Breitbart published this article:

Humza Yousaf MSP: The Islamist-Linked ‘Radical’ Behind Salmond and Scottish Independence

The article mentions Yousaf’s time as a media spokesman for Islamic Relief which has been apparently alleged to be a front for extremism according to the above article.

SNP links with extremists are nothing new though apparently. From Conservative Home, a post by Douglas Murray (2008):

Alex Salmond cosies up to Muslim Brotherhood

While he was the Transport Minister, he had been caught driving without the necessary insurance (he was later fined). From the BBC:

Transport Minister Humza Yousaf drove without insurance


SELF DEFENCE HATE CRIME?

From the Sun:

RACE ARREST Magistrate, 67, who fought off armed gang at his mansion called police only to be arrested for racially aggravated assault


DONALD TRUMP AND THE GIANT BLIMP

The biased mainstream media is going into overdrive encouraging protests against the POTUS’s planned visit to the UK on the 13th July, from Breitbart:

UK Media Pushes Anti-Trump Narrative with ‘How to Protest Visit’ Coverage

That pretty much tallies with our observations, for example from the Guardian:

Donald Trump to be met by protests at each stage of UK visit

A giant blimp has been given the green light from Sadiq Khan to fly in protest against Donald Trump’s visit. From the Evening Standard:

Giant Donald Trump baby blimp WILL fly over London for mass protest during his UK visit after green light from Sadiq Khan

From the Daily Mail, some information about the people behind the giant blimp:

Meet the men behind the anti-Trump protests: The wealthy descendant of a Labour politician, a hard-line Corbynista and a senior university lecturer

A crowdfund has been set up (which quickly raised over £30,000) to create a similar blimp of baby Sadiq Khan. A short amusing video on the subject:

Trump supporters crowdfund to fly baby Sadiq Khan blimp over London

We will have to see if he gives his permission for it to fly, or will Khan throw his toys out of the pram and refuse this one?
