UK police chiefs warn they will enter homes and break up Christmas dinners if families break lockdown rules

I’m sure that many in the UK share my sentiment:

From Daily Mail: Police chiefs have warned that Christmas family celebrations will be broken up by officers if they flout lockdown rules.

David Jamieson, the West Midlands police and crime commissioner, said officers will investigate reports of rule-breaking over the festive period.

The West Midlands are currently under Tier 2 restrictions, meaning people cannot mix with any other households or bubbles inside.

Mr. Jamieson told The Telegraph: ‘If we think there’s large groups of people gathering where they shouldn’t be, then police will have to intervene. If, again, there’s flagrant breaking of the rules, then the police would have to enforce.

‘It’s not the police’s job to stop people enjoying their Christmas. However, we are there to enforce the rules that the Government makes, and if the Government makes those rules then the Government has to explain that to the public.’

The police chief also warned about the upcoming Hanukkah and Diwali celebrations which will also see families eager to gather inside, contrary to the rules in certain areas.

The three-tier system was introduced earlier this month in an effort to slow the spread of coronavirus in regional hotspots.

Jane Kennedy, the PCC in Merseyside, which is currently a Tier 3 region, said she would also investigate reports of illegal gatherings over Christmas.

Mr. Jamieson said he fears civil unrest could boil over in the West Midlands in the near future, with the end of the furlough scheme ‘very likely’ to push people over the edge.

He said: ‘We’re sitting on a time bomb here. We’re getting very near the stage where you could see a considerable explosion of frustration and energy. Things are very on the edge in a lot of communities and it wouldn’t take very much to spark off unrest, riots, damage.’

“Multiculturalism” in the UK

Videos are NSFW.

I came across these on Twitter the other night. They come from a man named Steve Laws who lives in Kent, UK. He tweets alot about immigration, illegal immigration and border issues in his country.

Steve’s Twitter bio states, “I report what I see.”

He has over 10,000 followers yet no bluecheck mark. The videos below that he tweeted could be coming from somewhere else in the world besides the UK yet I don’t see why he’d gaslight. He seems like a rational kind of guy concerned with immigration over there. As he recently tweeted: “If the government won’t protect our borders then we’re going to have to do it ourselves. We are leaving behind a serious and very dangerous problem that our children will have to deal with.

Here’s the reason for his concern:

Appears that the US is not the only country dealing with current racial divides and its associated violence.

Collateral damage: “Staggering number” of extra deaths in UK community not explained by Wuhan virus

As if no one could have predicted this…

The BMJ (a peer-reviewed medical journal, formerly known as the British Medical Journal) published an article this week entitled, Covid-19: “Staggering number” of extra deaths in community is not explained by covid-19.”

The articles findings include the following:

Only a third of the excess deaths seen in the community in England and Wales can be explained by covid-19, new data have shown.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) data, which cover deaths in hospitals, care homes, private homes, hospices, and elsewhere, show that 6035 people died as a result of suspected or confirmed covid-19 infection in England and Wales in the week ending 1 May 2020 (where deaths were registered up to 9 May), a decline of 2202 from the previous week.

Although the number of deaths in care homes has fallen for the second week in a row, more covid related deaths are being reported in care homes than in hospitals and are tailing off more slowly.

However, David Spiegelhalter, chair of the Winton Centre for Risk and Evidence Communication at the University of Cambridge, said that covid-19 did not explain the high number of deaths taking place in the community.

At a briefing hosted by the Science Media Centre on 12 May he explained that, over the past five weeks, care homes and other community settings had had to deal with a “staggering burden” of 30 000 more deaths than would normally be expected, as patients were moved out of hospitals that were anticipating high demand for beds.

Of those 30 000, only 10 000 have had covid-19 specified on the death certificate. While Spiegelhalter acknowledged that some of these “excess deaths” might be the result of underdiagnosis, “the huge number of unexplained extra deaths in homes and care homes is extraordinary. When we look back . . . this rise in non-covid extra deaths outside the hospital is something I hope will be given really severe attention.

He added that many of these deaths would be among people “who may well have lived longer if they had managed to get to hospital.”

Good thing everyone around the world shutdown their economies and healthcare systems in such a panic. All in order to “save just one life.”

UK company creates knives with square tips amid record rise in stabbings

From NY Post: A cutlery company in England has designed a new line of kitchen knives with square tips in an effort to reduce the rising knife crime that has plagued the United Kingdom.

The Viners firm, founded in Sheffield in 1908, created the “Assure” range of blunt-tipped knives after knife-related crime reached a record high in England and Wales last year.

In Oct. 2019, the BBC reported new figures had shown a 7 percent rise in knife crime — a record high — in the months from June 2018 to June 2019. The data showed offenses involving a knife or sharp instrument increased from 41,000 to over 44,000 in those 12 months.

“With knife-related crime incidents at a record high and a reported 285 fatalities in the last 12 months alone, the UK Government has taken the decision to reclassify kitchen knives as an offensive weapon with the new Offensive Weapons Act 2019, leading some retailers to remove single knives from sale in retail stores,” the company said in a news release.

The firm said in response to the new legislation, it designed the square-ended knives that are “shaped to reduce and prevent injuries, accidents and fatalities” while still maintaining their functionality.

The knives were “repeatedly tested to ensure the tip does not pierce skin intentionally or otherwise,” Viners told the Independent.

The knives are available to order on Viners’ website with prices ranging between $4.55 and $18.87.

Ain’t multiculturalism grand? Grooming ‘epidemic’ as almost 19,000 children identified as sexual exploitation victims in England

The faces of multiculturalism in England…

From The Independent: Almost 19,000 children have been sexually groomed in England in the past year, according to official figures that have prompted warnings of an “epidemic”.

Campaigners say the true figure is far higher and accused the government of failing to tackle child sexual exploitation, despite promises made after high-profile cases in Rotherham and Rochdale.

More than 18,700 suspected victims of child sexual exploitation were identified by local authorities in 2018-19, up from 3,300 five years before.

Sarah Champion, the Labour MP for Rotherham, said the figures show that grooming “remains one of the largest forms of child abuse in the country”.

“Too many times, government has said it will ‘learn lessons’, yet 19,000 children are still at risk of sexual exploitation,” she told The Independent.

The government has singularly failed to tackle this issue head on. Its approach has been piecemeal and underfunded.”

Sajid Javid promised a review into the characteristics of grooming gangs in 2018, saying high-profile cases included a “high proportion of men of Pakistani heritage” and that “cultural reasons” could be at play.

The Independent understands that the Home Office started internal analysis of data from police and other agencies, and will use it to inform policy development and prevention strategies.But the findings may not be published and the Queen’s Speech, which set out Boris Johnson’s legislative agenda, did not include any mention of a public review.

Several grooming gang investigations and prosecutions are ongoing across the country, including in Huddersfield where several abusers have already been jailed in a series of linked trials.

In Rotherham, where revelations over the abuse of an estimated 1,500 victims sparked a national scandal in 2012, the National Crime Agency has identified more than 190 suspects.

Sammy Woodhouse, a Rotherham victim who helped expose the scandal, said she is still receiving reports of current abuse in parts of the country. “You hear this bulls*** line, ‘lessons have been learned’, but they haven’t learned anything,” she told The Independent.

I still hear a lot about the authorities aren’t doing things as they should. It’s not very often I hear something good and for all different reasons – if the police won’t act on reports, people feel they’re not being listened to or supported properly, or information not being shared.”

Mom slammed for saying “Father Christmas” instead of PC-accepted, “gender neutral” Santa

Good grief, liberals are a whiny bunch. Why y’all always trying to control others’ language?

From NY Post: Haters say this un-PC mother deserves a lump of coal for Christmas.

An unnamed mom in Plymouth, England, says she’s being ridiculed online for calling Santa Claus “Father Christmas,” instead of a gender-neutral equivalent, PlymouthLive reports.

The local mother says she was discussing a kids’ Christmas book in a Facebook group when she used the name — and commenters began ridiculing her for it, telling her to use “Santa” instead.

“Santa is now seen as gender neutral,” the woman writes. “I was only referring to the book ‘Father Christmas’ by Raymond Briggs,” she says, adding, “but it’s left me a little confused/on edge about what we are aloud [sic] to say.”

Some defended the mom’s name choice. “Father Christmas is fine!” another mom wrote in the group. “We have always used that in our family!! Use what YOU want.”

“Carry on calling him Father Christmas, it’s your choice,” responded another.

One dad agreed on the premise of maintaining a British tradition. “It is Father Christmas, we are English not American! This gender neutral stuff is way out of hand,” he said.

The name Santa Claus is not as popular in England, where many Brits use “Father Christmas” or “Saint Nicholas.”

Others were firmly against the name, though. “I must be the only one who hates ‘Father Christmas’, I much prefer ‘Santa/Santa Claus,’ plus it’s easier for littlies to say,” writes one parent.

The mom who wrote ‘Father Christmas’ in the Facebook group, however, has decided to adopt the gender-neutral name. “I have a small child and don’t really want to raise him saying ‘Father Christmas’ if it’s hurtful to some,” she says.

Prince Harry says we need to put aside “greed, apathy and selfishness” to protect the planet from climate destruction

Prince Harry’s net worth is $40 million.

Royal residences of Prince Harry and his bride: Buckingham Palace and Frogmore Cottage.

Approximately 600 people were invited to the royal wedding of Prince Harry and his bride. How many arrived via private jet? Oprah? George and Amal? Serena?

Freakin’ HYPOCRITES.

From Daily Mail: Prince Harry has rubbished suggestions that climate campaigning is ‘hippy’ in a plea for people to ramp up efforts to safeguard the planet.

The Duke of Sussex, who is on a Royal trip to Africa with Meghan and his son Archie, said to make progress humans needed to overcome ‘greed, apathy and selfishness’ and that it was essential to learn from past mistakes to protect the world’s most valuable assets.

He also warned of ‘vast ecosystems’ set ablaze in Africa, communities destroyed for short-term gain, and said that a ‘natural order’ between humans and wildlife must be restored.

Writing in the Daily Telegraph from Malawi, Harry added: ‘This may well sound hippy to some. But we cannot afford to have a “them or us” mentality. Humans and animals and their habitats fundamentally need to co-exist or within the next 10 years our problems across the globe will become even more unmanageable. Nature teaches us the importance of a circular system, one where nothing goes to waste and everything has a role to play.

‘If we interfere with it, rather than work with it, the system will break down. Conservation used to be a specialist area, driven by science.

‘But now it is fundamental to our survival and we must overcome greed, apathy and selfishness if we are to make real progress.’

The column comes ahead of his visit to Malawi’s Liwonde National Park on the eighth day of a tour of southern Africa to highlight conservation and anti-poaching work.

Harry said his role had given him an opportunity to ‘meet, listen and learn from those who live in some of the world’s harshest conditions and understand what it is they so desperately need to thrive’.

The Duke also highlighted environmental catastrophes including overfishing, and elephant and rhino poaching.

Church of England says to ban sales of pointed kitchen knives as there is no reason for them in the modern world

You ban guns and then knife crime increases. You ban knives then you know some other form of violence will increase.

Maybe the UK can just ban homicide and other crimes? Oh, wait…

From The Telegraph: A ban on the sale of pointed kitchen knives has been demanded by the Church of England as it says there is no reason for them in the modern world.

In a letter to ministers backed by a judge, top trauma doctors and psychiatrists, police and victims, Church of England bishops say re-designing domestic knives to give them rounded ends would combat knife crime by making “life-threatening” injuries “far less likely.”

They say sharp knife points were only used historically to pick up food because forks had not been invented and it was a time when they could be carried openly. Sharp points remain only as an anachronistic hangover from 18th century Britain during which forks became commonplace.

You must subscribe to read the rest of the article.

Premier UK has more:

“The signatories have urged Government to “take urgent measures to promote the sale of safe kitchen knife designs and restrict those designs which have been used in so many acts of violence.”

The letter endorses research, highlighted at the conference, which explains that points on domestic knives are historic and no-longer necessary.

“Historically we needed a point on the end of our knife to pick up food because forks weren’t invented. Now we only need the point to open packets when we can’t be bothered to find the scissors,” the letter reads.

It continues: “A five-year study in Edinburgh found that of the sharp instruments used in homicides, 94 per cent were kitchen knives. Research demonstrates kitchen knives are used in a large percentage of homicides due to their availability and lethal nature.

“Criminologists have demonstrated that reducing availability in turn reduces crime.

“The UK has worked for the public good by restricting handguns, paracetamol, smoking in public and plastic bags – now it is time to say ‘no bloody point’.”

UK children as young as six to be given compulsory self-touching lessons

From Daily Mail: Children as young as six are being taught about touching or ‘stimulating’ their own genitals as part of classes that will become compulsory in hundreds of primary schools.

Some parents believe the lessons – part of a controversial new sex and relationships teaching programme called All About Me – are ‘sexualising’ their young children. One couple told how they were so disturbed they withdrew their sons from lessons at a school where the programme is already being taught.

All About Me is being rolled out across 241 primaries by Warwickshire County Council and could be adopted by other local authorities next year as part of the Government’s overhaul of Relationship and Sex Education (RSE).

Family campaigners and religious groups warned that vague guidelines issued by the Department for Education meant schools could soon be providing sexual material to young children that many parents would consider inappropriate.

Even politicians who had supported the RSE legislation expressed concern. Tory MP David Davies said: ‘I and many other parents would be furious at completely inappropriate sexual matters being taught to children as young as six. These classes go way beyond the guidance the Government is producing and are effectively sexualising very young children.

Documents obtained by The Mail on Sunday detail how All About Me classes involve pupils aged between six and ten being told by teachers that there are ‘rules about touching yourself’. An explanation of ‘rules about self-stimulation’ appears in the scheme’s Year Two lesson plan for six and seven-year-olds.

Under a section called Touching Myself, teachers are advised to tell children that ‘lots of people like to tickle or stroke themselves as it might feel nice’. They are also instructed to inform youngsters that this may include touching their ‘private parts’ and, that while some people may say this behaviour is ‘dirty’, it is in fact ‘very normal’.

However, the youngsters are warned it is ‘not polite’ to touch themselves in public – it is an activity they should do when alone in the bath, shower or in bed.

In the same lesson, children are given scenarios which they must judge to be ‘OK’ or ‘not OK’.

In one, pupils are told that when a girl called Autumn ‘has a bath and is alone she likes to touch herself between her legs. It feels nice’.

At this point, teachers are advised to remind the students of the ‘rules about self-stimulation’.

The guidance on touching is repeated in lesson plans for Years Four and Five, involving pupils aged eight to ten.

As part of the Government’s RSE reforms, all primary schools will be required to teach compulsory relationships education from next September. It includes topics about families, friendships, online relationships, privacy and ‘being safe’. Sex education tailored to the needs of their pupils is also recommended, but not mandatory.

Warwickshire has introduced relationship lessons in some primaries ahead of the nationwide launch, including sessions addressing ‘self-stimulation’. From next September, parents will not be able to withdraw children from these lessons.

Parents at Coten End Primary School in Warwick met sex education consultant Jonny Hunt (who has his tweets protected), one of the architects of the All About Me scheme, in June and raised concerns about some of its content.

Asked why ‘self-stimulation’ appeared in the Year Five lesson plans and why it was not in the non-compulsory sex education element of the programme, he said: ‘Actually we refer to self-stimulation or self-soothing throughout the programme in earlier years as well. This is not sex education but actually information around safe and appropriate touching. However uncomfortable adults may find it, children of all ages will self-stimulate from time to time. They may do this when anxious or simply because it feels nice.’

Muslims participate in brutal brawl on the streets of Jolly Ol’ England

What a contribution to England’s “civic and cultural life.”

From Daily Mirror: A brutal brawl involving at least 30 people erupted on a residential street in broad daylight.

The fiery altercation saw savage punches thrown and a pensioner holds a younger male in a headlock as the group fight brings traffic to a standstill.

Social media reports claim the mass brawl involved two feuding families.

The violent incident took place on Thursday 15th August 2019 on Prestbury Road in Aston, Birmingham.
It is unknown who filmed the footage and why the astonishing brawl erupted.

During the astonishing confrontation, a male is seen being thrown to the ground. He is then dragged and punched by several men as screaming women try to break up the fight.

The fighting continues with an elderly man furiously getting a younger male into a chokehold and pushing him against a car.

At the end of the clip, more people join the brawl and a hooded thug, brandishing a large black baseball bat, heads towards the disorder.

West Midlands Police said in a statement: “Police were called to reports of disorder in Prestbury Road, Aston, around 5.30pm yesterday (15 August).

One man suffered a cut to his head after he is believed to have been struck by a baseball bat, while two others suffered minor facial injuries having been punched.

Officers received a further report of a stabbing at just after 9pm but officers attended and found no-one with stab injuries.

“Enquiries are ongoing and anyone with information can contact police via Live Chat at www.west-midlands.pnn.police.uk between 8am and midnight or call 101 anytime. Quote crime reference number 20BW/194517V/19.”
