Sadiq Khan dismisses David Kurten AM's call to remove the EU flag from City Hall

UKIP London AM, David Kurten, has called on Sadiq Khan to respect and honour the decision to leave the EU and remove the EU ring of stars flag from City Hall.

The Mayor of London has so far rejected calls to remove the EU logo from City Hall and said that he will continue to fly it after we have left.
Our city will continue to look outwards and trade and engage with the entire world - including the European Union - and we will continue to fly the EU flag outside City Hall.
London's largest export market is the US, just like the UK as a whole. But Mayor Khan doesn't propose to fly the American flag from City Hall.
I believe it also sends an important message to the almost one million Europeans living in London, who make a huge contribution to our city.
Kurten is calling for the EU logo to be replaced with the Cross of St George. English people are still the largest ethnic group in London although, of course, no longer the majority. How about flying the English flag to send an important message to the 4m English people living in London who make a huge contribution to the city?

Havering UKIP councillor proposes "independence" for his borough

UKIP Havering councillor, Lawrence Webb, has put forward a motion to turn the borough into a unitary authority and take back local decision making from the Mayor of London.

Residents in the London borough are unhappy with subsidising the mayor's spending plans for the rest of the city and want to take back control of planning, emergency services and other local services in what locals have nicknamed Hexit.

Cllr Lawrence's motion goes before Havering Borough Council on Wednesday.

Craig Mackinlay MP in court over election fraud allegations

South Thanet MP, Craig Mackinlay, is due in court today alongside his agent and a Conservative Party activist to answer charges of electoral fraud relating to the 2015 general election.

Mackinlay was found by a Channel 4 investigation to have declared a considerable amount of election expenditure as belonging to his party's national campaign when it should allegedly have been declared as local spending. Adding this expenditure to his expenses return would have put him a long way over the legal spending limit.

During the election campaign Nigel Farage and his team warned that Mackinlay was spending more money than he was allowed and we will soon find out if a judge agrees. Many other Conservative MPs were found in the Channel 4 investigation to have done the same thing but the CPS only brought a case again Mackinlay which suggests either a show trial given the importance of that election or that Mackinlay and his team were doing more than just following advice from the party.

Even if he is found to have cheated the 2015 election a judge would have no power to remove Mackinlay from his post as there has been another election unless he is sentenced to more than 3 months in prison.

Farage rules himself out of the leadership contest

Nigel Farage has ruled himself out of the latest leadership election, saying that mounting a comeback would be premature.

Although the decision will be a disappointment to many he is right to point out that after three times as leader it's becoming a bit of a joke. We are the UK Independence Party, not the Nigel Farage Party and although he is by far the most successful politician to never make it to Westminster we have to move on under someone else's leadership. We've had a couple of false starts but with the right leader we will rediscover our success of the last few years without Nigel at the helm.

The best way to protect Nigel's legacy now is to get behind the party and its next leader. We have to make sure we get a real Brexit and provide an effective opposition to Labour and the Tories and that's only going to happen with a successful UKIP.

UK to start withdrawal from London Fisheries Convention on Monday

The UK is withdrawing from the London Fisheries Convention on Monday which will return control of fishing between 6 and 12 miles from the coast to the British government.

Under the Convention, trawlers from Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy,
Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Sweden have the right to fish in the 6-12 mile zone around the UK. In two years they will lose that right and the estimated 10,000 tons of fish that are landed from that zone annually can be landed by UK fishermen again.

Glastonbury sack 600 EU immigrants on zero hour contracts

The company behind the Glastonbury festival has laid off 550 staff almost two weeks early thanks to zero hour contracts.

Jeremy Corbyn attracted a lot of criticism last week after turning down multiple requests to attend Armed Forces Day events to tell thousands of middle class festival goers who'd spent over £240 on tickets that he was going to end austerity for them. Corbyn appeared beside the millionaire landowner and festival organiser, Michael Eaves, to tell the masses about the evils of zero hour contracts, exploitation of workers, how the minimum wage should be set at £10 an hour (including for 16 year olds) and how EU immigrants must have their rights unilaterally guaranteed.

Embarrassingly for Corbyn, the company behind Glastonbury shunned the million+ unemployed people in the UK and employed around 700 mostly EU immigrants on zero hour contracts to clean up the mess left behind after the festival finished and then sacked 600 of them because there wasn't enough work for them to do. Many of them don't have enough money to get home or pay for accommodation until their return flights.

Tories offer DUP £1bn bribe for Northern Ireland

Theresa May has caved in to demands from the DUP for yet more English money to subsidise their spending in return for supporting the Tories at Westminster.

Labour politicians up in arms about the £1bn bribe have short memories since it was a Labour government that introduced the Barnett Formula which guarantees extra spending per head of population in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland compared to England and successive Labour governments have used the Barnett Formula to buy Scottish and Welsh votes.

The Barnett Formula currently gives a subsidy of £1,623 per head to Scotland, £1,180 per head to Wales and £2,347 per head to Northern Ireland. This comes to £4.25bn for Northern Ireland with the Tories now promising to add another £1bn on top to secure the DUP's 10 votes.

A Labour government introduced the Barnett Formula in 1979 which was conceived by Labour MP Joel Barnett (who now campaigns against the use of his own formula). Successive Labour governments have abused the Barnett Formula to buy votes in their former Scottish and Welsh strongholds. The Labour government led by Tony Blair introduced devolution for Scotland and Wales, deliberately leaving out England and successive Labour (and Tory) governments have blocked access to the minutes of the Cabinet meetings where that decision was made. Labour courted the DUP in both 2010 and 2015 with the offer of more money for Northern Ireland. Whilst still a Labour MP, Jack Straw said "the English as a race are not worth saving". Former (Scottish) Labour Lord Chancellor for England, Charlie Falconer, said that there would never be an English Parliament. Labour have consistently fought any attempts to give financial or political equality to England.

The Labour Party never has and never will be the party that represents English interests. The same goes for the British nationalist Conservative Party. UKIP is the only mainstream party that is calling for an English Parliament, the abolition of the Barnett Formula and an end to the institutional discrimination against England. We are the only party that represents English interests and the hypocrites in the Labour Party complaining that the Tories are copying their ideas should hang their heads in shame for their past and present actions.

Terror In Manchester, Today Is Not A Day For Politicking

This morning we all woke up to the terrible news of children and their parents being killed at a concert in Manchester.
I won't say who the artist was as she feels bad enough as it is.

News rolled out as more casualties and deaths unfolded.

As the day has worn on, the usual apologists have come out in sympathy for members of a faith, calling people racist for decrying the faith of the perpetrator. The perpetrator was Muslim, followed his interpretation of the Quaran, so he is nothing else and can be nothing else except for a muslim.

Also Islam is not a race just as much as Christianity is not one.

Another bug bear of mine is all the loons crying out Christianity, our Christian country etc.
Religion is the cause of this atrocity, go on stoke the fire with you sudden found faith.
Well done.

All the usual pray for whatever hashtags etc. are out in force.

The only one I agree with is the " We Stand With Manchester" one, as a whole I would think most of us would and do feel united behind their struggle today.

On one thing though the country has united behind is the no political campaigning today. I totally agree with that, although many are flaunting that tenement in anger, most have stuck to it.

My one hope is that science and reason will be taught to a degree where people become enlightened, stop all the hatred about religion and stop the racism, be it casual or with menace.

Fighting over whos deity is the best and what wording should be interpreted from books written thousands of years ago is just madness.

We are all human, we should be treated equal, we should not be subjugated by others.

We should have the right to control what is ours, who runs our countries and who we choose to make our laws.

We should not have things forced on us like open door migration, it doesn't happen anywhere else apart from those within the EU.

We should not be forced into poverty by our governments being forced to bail out others all the time.

We should be looked after by our government and not put at the back of the que in the name of social justice.
Social justice warriors do not realise they are committing unsocial acts by forcing others to go against the grain for the satisfaction of people who just want free stuff.

I really do hope the enlightenment comes through science and nature so we do not have to listen to people fighting over fairy tales and mythical beings in the sky.

My piece here is written by me and is my opinion only.
Do not try and link it to others or UKIP.

Why should we pay it EU? You owe us.

It seems the team behind EUmafia.EU are trying to sway the elections and trying to bully the UK.

They have upped the fantasy bill to a whopping 100 billion Euro.

They seem to forget that for years Britain has been the second largest contributor to the EU budget, our tax payers pounds have paid for lots of EU assets, including the majority input to the building of the EU parliament buildings, roads in the eastern bloc and many other silly things such as the hefty wage packet and pensions for the unelected twonks that are now trying to come up with ways to cause fear and division in the UK.

Here's the thing, we are not going to be swayed, nor will the people of the UK be browbeaten into submission by a bunch of fools that are angry because they have to put more money into the pot to keep the chaotic project EU going.

Yes you, France and Germany.

Merkel and Hollande should shut the hell up.
1. Because they are gone this year, either voted out or not wanted.
2. We don't care what you think.
3. There is no legal precedent under international law that they could force us into paying.
4. They have more to lose if we just say Bye Bye.
5. Their whining is just getting boring now.

Heres a piece from the biased Beeb.

Brexit: UK will 'not pay €100bn divorce bill' says Davis

The UK will not pay a €100bn (£84.6bn) "divorce bill" to leave the EU, Brexit Secretary David Davis has insisted.
He told ITV's Good Morning Britain the UK would pay what was legally due, "not just what the EU wants".
It comes amid claims by the Financial Times that the financial settlement sought by the EU has risen from €60bn.
Mr Davis said the UK treated its EU "rights and obligations" seriously but it had "not seen any number", adding the EU was playing "rough and tough".
The EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier is due to publish his guidelines for the talks later although they are not likely to include any financial demands.
An EU source has told the BBC that officials in Brussels will not enter into a discussion about potential figures for a final bill, likely to be one of the hardest-fought and most sensitive areas of the Brexit process.

Mr Davis said the negotiations had not started in earnest but indicated the UK would set down a marker when it came to talks over the divorce settlement.
"We are not supplicants," he said. "This is a negotiation. They lay down what they want and we lay down what we want."
Various figures had been knocking around, he said, but asked directly whether a figure of €100bn was acceptable, he replied: "We will not be paying €100bn."

Brexit Secretary David Davis tells Today EU nationals can expect "generous settlement"

He added: "We will do it properly. We will take our responsibilities seriously. What we've got to do is discuss in detail what the rights and obligations are.
"We have said we will meet our international obligations, but there will be our international obligations including assets and liabilities and there will be the ones that are correct in law, not just the ones the Commission want."

'Pinch of salt'

He subsequently told the BBC that the €100bn figure should be viewed "with a pinch of salt" and the negotiations would not "end up there", adding that it was up to the two sides to agree and he did not want the European Court of Justice to become involved.
Many Conservative MPs argue the UK does not owe the EU anything given the size of the contributions it has made over the past 40 years. A recent report by a House of Lords committee argued the UK was not legally obliged to pay a penny although to do this would threaten any chance of a post-Brexit trade deal.

If the UK was to walk away without a deal, Mr Davis conceded that it would not owe anything but he insisted "nobody was seeking that outcome".
"We want a deal. We think we can get a deal that is beneficial to everybody" he told Radio 4's Today.
The EU has insisted that the UK will have to accept liabilities stemming from its membership, including contributions to the EU Budget. The EU has already listed some sort of agreement on a payment from the UK as a precondition for opening talks on a trade deal.
Previous calculations had placed the financial settlement likely to be demanded by the EU at between 50 and 60bn euros. The Financial Times, using the same economic model with new data from around Europe, suggests that has now gone up to 100bn euros.

'Gossip and spin'

There are reports in Brussels that the difference might include demands from countries like France and Poland for UK contributions to farm subsidies. The EU may also be planning to refuse to allow the UK a share of the EU's assets including buildings and bank deposits.
The suggestion that the payment would be made in instalments would not do much to soften the blow from the British perspective, the BBC's Europe correspondent Kevin Connolly said.
The revelation comes amid growing tensions between the UK and EU following reports of a dinner in Downing Street last week, in which European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker is said to have told Theresa May that Brexit could not be a success.
On Tuesday, Mrs May said Mr Juncker would discover that she could be a "bloody difficult woman".
Mr Davis, who was one of ten people present at the dinner, said accounts of the meeting were "gossip and spin" and while there were some differences in key areas, the atmosphere had been "constructive" rather than hostile.
While the process was currently in a "rough and tumble" phase of manoeuvring, he believed a "generous settlement" could be reached over the status of EU nationals living in the UK and Britons living on the continent which guaranteed "pretty much exactly" the same rights they enjoy at the moment.
This, he said, could be done in the form of an "exchange of letters" between the two sides pending the revision of existing EU Treaties.

Cheeky Drunker and Herr Merkel Are The Deluded Ones

The following story is mitigating proof that the EU hierarchy are not going to play ball and Merkel is privy to things we are not.

I am of the opinion we should just walk away and work and trade under WTO rules.

The EU will soon come running when the trade surplus money runs out.

Jean-Claude Juncker says Theresa May is 'deluded' in scathing call with Angela Merkel after Brexit talks

The European Union has warned that it is "more likely than not" that Brexit talks will fail after Jean Claude Juncker accused Theresa May of being "deluded" in the wake of a tense Downing Street dinner .
The President of the European Commission, launched a scathing attack on Mrs May after the meeting on Wednesday last week, the  German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung  reported.
He reportedly claimed during the meeting that Brexit "cannot be a success" and threatened to end talks without a trade deal if Britain refuses to pay a "divorce" bill.
The Prime Minister said that the UK is not legally obliged to pay the EU anything as it leaves the EU. Mr Juncker and his colleagues responded by saying that Britain cannot simply cancel its membership of the EU as if it was a "golf club".
EU officials accused Mrs May of viewing Brexit through "rose-tinted glasses" after she said "let us make Brexit a success". Mr Juncker insisted: "This cannot be a success."
The pair also clashed over EU migrants as Mrs May pushed for an early deal during negotiations. The European Union's representatives said they were "astonished" by Mrs May's push for it to be sorted "by the end of June".
Mr Juncker suggested that this timetable was "too optimistic", pulling out of his bag "two piles of paper" - Croatia's EU entry deal and Canada's free trade deal - to highlight how complex talks are likely to become.
The most tense talks came over Britain's Brexit divorce bill. The European Union is calling on the EU to pay up to £50billion to fulfill its obligations to the EU.
Mrs May reportedly insisted that the UK is not legally obliged to pay the EU anything, which appears to have prompted an angry response. Mr Juncker suggested that without paying a divorce bill Britain would be unable to secure a future trade deal.
After the meal Mr Juncker called Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, saying that Mrs May was "living in another galaxy" and "deluding herself".
His call led to Mrs Merkel publicly warning that Britain was suffering from "illusions" about Brexit. Mrs May subsequently highlighted her comments and said that EU nations were "lining up" to oppose Britain and that talks would be "tough".
The European Union also appeared to reject calls by Mrs May for talks to remain confidential. The Prime Minister called for negotiations to be held in monthly, four-day blocks which would remain confidential until the end of the process.
The European Commission said that this would be "impossible" given the need to consult member states and the European Parliament over discussions. "All documents must be published," the report suggested.

Burka ban? What burka ban?

The media have been falling over themselves to condemn UKIP's proposed burka ban. There's just one problem: it's not a burka ban.

The party revealed its integration policy a few days ago which called for a ban on covering your face in public, mandatory checks for FGM on at-risk girls, an end to Sharia courts, abolishing postal voting on demand and making the "honour" in honour killings and the race or religion of grooming gangs (if different to the victims) an aggravating factor.

The policy that has caused most controversy is the proposed ban on covering your face in public. Clearly the burka is one of the face coverings that would be affected by such a ban but so too would masks, scarves and bandannas that are a common sight at violent protests. The reason for the proposed ban is partly to promote integration and partly for security reasons. Only this week a burka-wearing terrorist suspect was shot by police during a raid. Face coverings are banned in Austria, Belgium, France, the Netherlands and in some parts of Denmark, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania and Spain. UKIP's policy would require everyone to ensure that their faces can be seen in public.

Female Genital Mutilation has been illegal in the UK since 1987 yet there has been just one attempted prosecution and that failed because the doctor in question hadn't actually performed the FGM. In France girls who are at risk of FGM are checked by doctors to ensure they haven't been mutilated. The zero tolerance approach in France has seen more than 100 people go to prison for mutilating girls and a small number of prosecutions have also been secured in the Netherlands, Italy and Denmark. UKIP's policy would not only introduce medical checks for at risk girls but it would place a legal obligation on all adults report FGM if they are aware of it and introduce a presumption of prosecution of parents, putting an end to the unacceptable blind eye the police turn to it.

Sharia courts and tribunals have no place in our legal system. They are discriminatory toward women and undermine the principle of us all being equal before the law. Despite many attempts by politicians and academics to portray Sharia courts as benign organisations advising the faithful on religious matters, they have remained stubbornly problematic and a government report is due to be published this year on the misuse of Sharia courts and their incompatibility with English law.

Postal voting on demand has caused a fraud epidemic that seriously undermines the democratic process and it nearly always involves Muslim communities and is usually for the benefit of the Labour Party. There have been numerous prosecutions for postal vote fraud, including the infamous Lutfur Rahman seeing his mayoralty of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets annulled by a special election court and his party banned. People involved in elections all over the country will have their own stories of blatant postal vote fraud yet the system remains open to abuse. UKIP's policy is to return to the previous system of only issuing postal votes to those who need them because they are unable to attend a polling station.

Between 2010 and 2014 there were 11,000 "honour crimes" reported to the police in the UK and an estimated 12-15 "honour killings" every year. Yet when prosecutions are pursued the fact that it has been done in the name of religion has no bearing on the punishment. Sexual grooming of young girls is an increasing problem and again, one that most commonly involves Muslim communities but disproportionately targets young white girls as their victims. UKIP's policy would require the courts to treat the racial and/or religious aspect of these crimes as an aggravating factor and increase the punishments accordingly.

Back in 2011 an army recruitment video was broadcast on TV showing an irate man facing up to a soldier. He calms down when the soldier removes his sunglasses because "army officers worldwide have learnt that eye contact is crucial in gaining trust".

Allowing the facial covering policy to be wrongly portrayed as a ban on the burka was clumsy and unhelpful. People should be free to wear what they choose but it is sometimes necessary to curtail such liberties when the risk of domestic and international terrorism is so high. Whether there should even be such a thing as an "integration policy" rather than rolling these rather sensible policies into more conventional policy areas like communities and local government or justice and home affairs is debatable. It certainly doesn't need to be a flagship policy in a snap general election when there is next to no time to correct the mistruths and deliberate misrepresentations before polling day. But despite all that, they are (on the whole) sensible policies designed to make the country safer and to promote community cohesion.
