Our weekly roundup of news and opinion articles that we thought were important, mostly UK news but foreign news stories of interest to us as well.


BREXIT NEWS – 19 DAYS TO GO

From the Express:

Queen dragged into Brexit? DELAYING Remainers risk ‘full-blown constitutional crisis’

If May loses the “meaningful vote” on 12 March (next Tuesday) then there will be a vote on an extension of Article 50. According to the above article the Queen would have to give Royal Assent.

There was some speculation that if May’s deal fails then the UK could be “forced” into a Customs Union by the majority of MPs in parliament who favour a “soft” Brexit:

Brexit WARNING: UK may be FORCED into customs union as EU official says talks going BADLY

Meanwhile apparently Dominic Grieve the unofficial Prime Minister was holding talks. From the Telegraph:

The second referendum idea did not go down well with one protestor. From order-order:

TOMMY ROBINSON TO FACE ANOTHER COURT HEARING

From the Express:

The next hearing will be on 22nd March, just a week before we are due to leave the EU. Tommy responded:

In other Tommy Robinson news, we saw this from Breitbart:

Amazon have removed “Mohammed’s Koran” from sale. Some more info. in this article from the Guardian:

Peter McLoughlin, the co-author of “Mohammed’s Koran”, writes about the ban at Brian of London’s website:

TRANSGENDER AGENDA

We should always learn from experience, but the experience of medical professionals involved in sex change operations in the past is ignored. Paul McHugh, a psychiatrist in Chief of Johns Hopkins Hospital writes about his 40 years of experience:

Johns Hopkins Psychiatrist: It Is Starkly, Nakedly False That Sex Change Is Possible

Worst of all, impressionable youngsters are being brainwashed into thinking that they might really be the other gender, and some of these children may be desperate for approval from adults so they may seek that approval by doing what they think their “progressive” teacher will like.

OTHER EU NEWS

This article at the Express caught our eye not so much for the headline as a detail in the article:

From Vlad Tepes’s blog:

YELLOW VESTS PROTEST in FRANCE - WEEK 17

Incidentally Vlad Tepes’s Youtube channel has apparently been shut down:

Restoring the videos that Youtube took special exception to

In February Macron tried to smear the Yellow Vest movement with the charge of anti-semitism. CNN relayed the anti-Yellow Vest propaganda to their readers in the US:

Yellow Vest protesters fan flames of anti-Semitism in France

Macron attacks yellow vests after philosopher abused at rally

Quote:

Several gilets jaunes (or “yellow vest”) protesters were filmed hurling abuse at philosopher and vocal Israel supporter Alain Finkielkraut as he ran into protesters during the 14th consecutive weekend of marches.

Insults including “dirty zionist,” “f***ing Islamophobe” and “f*** your mother” were hurled at Finkelkraut, while less hostile activists walked him away from the demonstration and behind police lines.

However it turned out that this isolated incident in fact involved a radicalized Muslim, as explained by this article from Gatestone Institute this week:

A Project to Transform France


ANTI-SEMITISM ELSEWHERE

Anti-semitism is alive in Europe however, if this carnival procession in Belgium is anything to go by (video clip in the tweet):

Organisers in Belgium;

“We found it comical to have pink Jews in the procession” (standing on piles of gold coins) You can have a laugh with other religions too"

Looking forward to you trying that with Muslims next year… in Jihadi Central, Belgium. pic.twitter.com/UDg5wkCLXB

THE WORD “IDIOCRACY” HAS BEEN ADDED TO THE DICTIONARY

We failed to notice at the time, but last year the word “Idiocracy” was added to the Oxford English Dictionary:

New words notes for October 2018

The entry:

idiocracy

Quote:

A society consisting of or governed by idiots (or people characterized as idiots); (also) a government or ruling body formed of people considered stupid, ignorant, or idiotic. Also as a mass noun: society or government of this kind.

The popularization of this word is partly thanks to our own efforts of course:

Academia In The Idiocracy – The Black Radical Professor

Hate Crime Policing In The Idiocracy – Part 2
