Environmental Hypocrite Meghan Markle flies makeup artist from New York to London for her appearance at award show

Like most environmental activists, Meghan Markle is a hypocrite. Her husband has said that “we need to put aside “greed, apathy and selfishness” to protect the planet from climate destruction.”

Of course that only applies to commoners, not his wife as witnessed by her makeup artist flying across the globe to do her makeup for an award show earlier this month.

According to Express Digest, Meghan Markle’s BFF and makeup artist flew into London ahead of the royal’s appearance at the Endeavour Awards earlier this month.

Daniel Martin, from New York, shared an Instagram story showing he was relaxing in the business class section a plane, revealing he was travelling from the states to London.

Meghan, 38, joined her husband Prince Harry, 35, at the annual awards as she made her first official public appearance in Britain following the Megxit crisis and prepares to step down as a senior royal.

Daniel has often joined the Duchess at key moments in her royal life, including her wedding and baby shower, as well as around the time of Archie’s christening, sparking rumours he was one of the baby’s secret godparents.

Daniel shared the black and white travelling snap of the business-class cabin to his 137,000 followers on Instagram yesterday. He revealed he was reading the latest Business Traveller magazine, which included a feature on ‘Waking up in London.’

As well as a cartoon plane, he shared he was travelling from New York’s JFK airport and also cheekily posted: ‘Smell ya later’.

London’s murder toll soars to its highest level in a decade, more than HALF stabbed to death in knife crime epidemic

Mayor Kahn’s solution to address the rise in violence? Raise taxes, of course.

From Daily Mail: The number of murders in London this year is at its highest level in more than a decade with 147 recorded – more than half of whom were stabbed.

September and June were the joint bloodiest months of the year in the capital with 17 homicides each, followed by July which had 16 and March and December with 15.

The 2019 rate broke last year’s total of 133 by early December – and is the highest level recorded since 2008 when Scotland Yard investigated 154 deaths. The total compiled by MailOnline this year includes murders and manslaughters recorded by the Met, British Transport Police and City of London Police.

The youngest murder victim was Riley Fauvrell, who died aged just five days after being delivered by an emergency C-section in Thornton Heath, South London. Riley’s mother Kelly Mary Fauvrelle, 26, was stabbed to death in June while pregnant with him. Her ex-partner Aaron McKenzie, 25, has since pleaded not guilty to murder.

The oldest victim was Dorothy Woolmer, 89, who was raped and murdered at home in Tottenham in August. Reece Dempster, 23, was charged but has not yet pleaded.

Some 17 of the victims were children – including 12 teenagers and five youngsters aged under two – and the mean average age of all 147 people killed was 32.

The year began with two murders in the first six hours of 2019 on New Years’s Day, with Tudor Simionov, 33, and Charlotte Huggins, 32, killed in Mayfair and Camberwell respectively. January was the second quietest month for murders with only eight – above only October, which saw six. The final month of the year saw 14 homicides.

The tolerant left: Landlord will not renew lease of Chick-Fil-A’s first UK restaurant

Chick-Fil-A (CFA) just opened up their first restaurant in the UK in Reading (about an hour outside of London.)

The tolerant left protested because of their bigotry against the religious beliefs of the CEO, Dan Cathy.

MyFoxChicago reports the store opened on October 10th. LGBT protestors immediately showed up and convinced the landlord to not renew their lease after it expires in six months.

From the article: “A mall spokesperson said concerns raised by activists about the chain have made them determine “the right thing to do” is not to extend the restaurant’s lease beyond the “six-month pilot period,” according to reports by BBC.”

Read the whole story here.

Progressives’ hate and determination to smear CFA was evidenced on Twitter last week when a libtard spread an outright lie on Twitter. A tweet was made viral that claimed the following:

As Daily Caller noted, “Fact-checking website Snopes butchered its fact check of a viral but false tweet linking Chick-fil-A to anti-gay legislation in Uganda.”

The truth didn’t stop the tweet from receiving more than 57,000 thousand retweets and 118,000 thousand likes on Twitter.

Daily Caller reported the following: Chick-fil-A has not supported legislative campaigns of any kind in Uganda,” a Chick-Fil-A spokesman told the Washington Examiner’s Brad Polumbo, who criticized Snopes in a column Wednesday.”

Read the whole CFA/Uganda smear tactic here.

That’s typical of the left – just following the Commie playbook.

Every time the progressives try to bash CFA we always go there to support them. We’ll be making another visit to CFA this Saturday for lunch!

London Mayor Sadiq Khan gets heckled by Brexit protesters outside Parliament

Look who gets armed body guards while the subjects in his city have no right to self defense.

The comments on the YouTube video indicate that Londoners are completely fed up with him. Maybe next time when they vote they’ll remember that elections have consequences.

And man, I didn’t realize what a short man Sadiq is. Looks like he’s not even 5 feet tall.

How’s that gun control working for London? Five attacks leave three dead in 24 hours

From BBC: Police have made 14 arrests after five separate attacks in London left three men dead and three others injured in the space of 24 hours.

An 18-year-old man was stabbed to death at about 16:42 BST on Friday in Wandsworth, south London. Police were called minutes later, at 16:54, to Plumstead, south-east London, where a 19-year-old man was shot dead.

A man in his 30s then died after he was stabbed in Tower Hamlets on Saturday afternoon.

In the early hours of Saturday two men were stabbed in Clapham and another was stabbed in Brixton.
The condition of one of the men injured in Clapham is not yet known, while the injuries sustained by the others are non life-threatening.

London mayor Sadiq Khan said he was “sickened” following the death of the two teenagers.

US President Donald Trump, who has a long-running political feud with Mr. Khan, took to Twitter to say London “needs a new mayor ASAP. Khan is a disaster – will only get worse!”

In response, a spokesman for Mr. Khan said the mayor was focused on supporting the city’s communities and “over-stretched” emergency services.

The mayor’s thoughts were with the victims’ families and he “is not going to waste his time responding to this sort of tweet”, he added.

Six males – aged between 16 and 19 – have been arrested on suspicion of the murder of the teenager in Wandsworth, who died from stab wounds in Deeside Road.

Tooting MP Rosena Allin-Khan said the killing was “heartbreaking” and “absolutely tragic”.

After the shooting in a car park in Hartville Road in Plumstead, three boys aged 16 and 17 and a 17-year-old girl were arrested on suspicion of murder.

Armed police, local officers, the London Ambulance Service and an air ambulance all attended, but the teenage victim died a short while later.

The deaths take the total number of murders in London in 2019 to 56. This time last year there had been 77 homicides, 48 of which were stabbings.

Hollyweird hypocrite Emma Thompson flies 5,400+ miles to protest climate change

Leonardo DiCaprio would be proud.

From The Sun: Emma Thompson was accused of hypocrisy last night after jetting 5,400-miles to take part in London’s eco-protest. The Oscar-winning actress flew back to London from LA to support the eco-warriors plotting to take down Heathrow today.

It is estimated that a single 5,456-mile transatlantic flight between Los Angeles and London Heathrow would run up a three tonne carbon footprint.

Thompson posted a video on social media to pledge her support to the group. She donned denim dungarees and a green sticker of the Extinction Rebellion symbol in front of an inflatable plastic elephant.

The Bafta-award winning actress explained that she would have joined the protest earlier but she had been busy celebrating her 60th birthday. She added: “I am so proud and thrilled to be part of Extinction Rebellion, a new movement that has come up behind all the old ones that I’ve been part of since I was 16 years old.

“A movement that’s telling it like it is and saying to government ‘look, there’s no more time. You can’t lie and you can’t stall any longer’.”

Many protesters involved in the march have demanded that the Government limit how many times individuals can fly each year.

A spokesperson for Dame Emma told the MailOnline: “She had to fly home at any rate, it was just earlier than she thought she could have. At the moment, that is our only available and practical means of trans-global travel.”

Ringleader of the movement Robin Boardman-Pattison declared during a television interview this week that flying “should only be used in emergencies” despite appearing to travel extensively.

An Extinction Rebellion spokesman said: “If Emma Thompson wants to come and help out, that’s great, she’s using her platform which is incredibly valuable to anyone. If she has to fly around the world like a climate lawyer might have to fly around the world, it seems counter-productive in the short term but we are looking at the bigger picture.”

Good thing they banned guns: London averaging 40 knife crimes per day

London has some serious crime issues as I’ve blogged about before. See the following:

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has a serious crime problem: City sets record for murders as police launch 100th investigation

London stabbings: Six teenagers attacked in 90 minutes during night of violence

Guess what is responsible for this: London sees surge in knife attacks

Mayor Sadiq Khan refuses to acknowledge the real source of knife crimes in his city: criminals. Instead of getting tough on criminals the mayor focuses on political correctness and blames the lack of taxpayer dollars for this “complex” problem (of course).

From Evening Standard: The shocking extent of London’s knife crime problem was revealed today as figures showed that 40 knife offences a day were reported to police over a two-year period.

A person was knifed to death on average every four days in London in 2017 and 2018, figures revealed, following a Freedom of Information request by the Standard.

The figures reveal the total number of knife offences including those involving stabbings and deaths caused by a blade for the calendar years of 2017 and 2018. Met Police dealt with 29,232 knife offences in a two years.

On average this is about 40 offences a day in London.

The total number of homicides and stabbings fell across the two-year period however. In 2018, the number of knife attacks fell by over 500. In 2017, there was 4,784 stabbings and in 2018 there was 4,246. The number of homicides also fell by 12.

Official statistics for 2019 have not been made available just yet buy Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said the decrease is encouraging. Although the number is still “too high”, Mr. Khan praised London communities and the Met for their work in reducing crime.

A spokesman from the Ben Kinsella Trust, which tackles knife crime through education and campaigning, said the small reduction is not a victory yet.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said officers are working “day and night” to identify and pursue knife criminals.

The majority of the crimes detailed in the figures were committed in Southwark with 1,594 offences occuring in that London borough The borough also had the highest number of knife-related homicides with 17 people being stabbed to death in two years. Bexley was the only borough of 33 to not have any deaths resulting from a knife in the two years.

Mr. Khan said: “Thanks to London’s communities and the hard work of the Met Police, who have been targeting offenders and removing dangerous weapons from our streets, we are seeing some knife crime offences starting to fall, but it still remains too high. We still desperately need the Government to reverse its damaging cuts to the police and preventative services.

He added the level of knife crime “across the country” was still “unacceptably high”.

Finding new ways to be a victim: Lack of pockets in women’s clothing now equals “inequality”

Because of this story, women are now calling for more pockets in their clothing. Next they’ll be complaining about how lumpy they look when their pockets are filled.

Some people just enjoy finding something to whine about.

From Fox News: Now that’s #squadgoals.

One savvy bride made sure her bridesmaids looked – and felt – their best on her wedding day, outfitting her six pals in bespoke, floor-length gowns complete with practical pockets. A photo of the bridal squad in a “power pose” on the church altar has since gone majorly viral online as Twittizens call for more pockets in women’s clothing.

On Jan. 23, bridesmaid Nell Goddard shared a hilarious photo from her friend Eve Paterson’s recent London wedding to Twitter in a post that has since garnered well over 10,000 likes and sparked more than 2,300 comments.

In the image, Paterson fiercely poses in front of a traditional altar with her hands in the (unexpected) pockets of her wedding gown, as her surrounding “bride squad” does the same. “My friend got married last month and her dress and the bridesmaids’ dresses ALL HAD POCKETS. And yes, we did use them for storing snacks, thank you for asking,” Goddard captioned the cheeky pic.

“The dresses were great. Eve was clear from the start that she wanted her bridesmaids not only to feel comfortable, but also be practically equipped for all that the day involved,” Goddard told Fox News. “Each bridesmaid got to choose her own style of dress, and when we realized we could ‘add pockets’ for a few extra pounds, it seemed like a no-brainer… although it must be said that you’d never dream of having to pay extra for pockets on a groom’s suit!”

“I think these dresses have proved it’s possible to look good, feel comfortable, and be practically equipped for the day. Everyone who noticed the pockets loved them, and they were incredibly useful” she added.

In the hours since, the image has been met with massive applause, as countless Twitter users praise the practicality of pockets in gowns for both brides and bridesmaids – and opine that the detail deserves to be more frequently added in women’s clothing designs.

“Oh my god! I might have to divorce husband just so I can do this!!” one fan of the dresses wrote.

“Divine! You all look magnificent and adequately equipped for whatever the day may throw at you!” another exclaimed. “Truly she knows how to make a blessed day be truly blessed,” one agreed. “I really wish I’d thought of pockets when I got married. Such a little thing yet so important,” another mused.

The bride, meanwhile, told BBC that the custom detail was a no-brainer for the nuptials. “It’s just so rare for women’s clothing to be practical. It might seem ridiculous to most men, but we often have to choose between convenience and looking good,” Paterson, a 24-year-old charity worker from Cambridge, England, said.

“When you have them custom made-to-measure, it only cost $7 extra to add pockets, so really it just felt like a no-brainer!” Goddard similarly told The Independent of the KF Bridal creation, detailing that the crew carried schedules and agendas for the big day in the special pockets.

The bride, too, acknowledged that though the general deficit of sufficient pockets in women’s clothing is a minor issue, it is a topic certainly worthy of discussion and further exploration.

“The more momentum this [topic] gets, the more we’re keen to say that we know this is a relatively small issue, and there are far bigger issues for women around the world! It’s just that the more those who have a platform are able to call out the little inequalities (like pockets!) the more we hope the bigger issues can be alleviated for women globally as well,” Paterson told Fox News.

As noted by the Independent, an August 2018 study from culture site The Pudding discovered that the pockets on women’s jeans were approximately 48 percent smaller and 6.5 percent narrower than those in men’s jeans. (Maybe because women, on the average, are smaller and narrower than men?) The Pudding team analyzed the pocket sizes of 80 pairs of jeans produced by 20 major brands including Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Levi’s for the study.

Insanity: Dog in London accused of hate crime after pooping outside a home

The UK lost all common sense several years ago.

From Daily Mail: We all know it’s irritating, unsightly and unhygienic, but one case of dog fouling has been logged by police as a racist hate crime.

The incident is among numerous alleged hate crimes uncovered by The Mail on Sunday that critics say are so petty they are undeserving of police time and expense. 

Further examples in a list of more than 2,500 alleged ‘hate incidents’ logged by the Metropolitan Police in 2015 and 2016 include:

  • An envelope that had been opened and resealed;
  • An accident involving a car that bore a Remembrance poppy;
  • A disputed line call in a tennis match;
  • A dead rat found in a garden;
  • And a man telling library staff he was campaigning for Brexit.

Last night, David Davies, Tory MP and former special constable, said the recording of such ‘non-crimes’ was a waste of police time. ‘This is part of the reason that police struggle to investigate serious offences such as home burglaries,’ he said. ‘People need to start thinking more carefully before they call the police.’

The 2,507 hate incidents are revealed in a 118-page document disclosed under Freedom of Information laws.

A description of the dog fouling incident reads: ‘An unknown dog has fouled outside of victim address and victim perceived this to be a racial incident.’ 

Another canine-related case logged as an alleged hate crime says: ‘Suspect’s dog barking at victim.’

On another occasion, a supposed victim of racial abuse reported that he ‘believes a letter addressed to him was opened and then resealed before he had collected it from the Post Office’.

Several of the claims were over parking disputes or car crashes. One entry says: ‘Unknown suspect has reversed into victim’s car causing extensive damage. Victim perceives to be a hate crime as she had a poppy in front of her car.

Another man claimed that his neighbours were parking only outside his house and were ‘targeting him due to him being black’. Disputes between neighbours feature prominently. One entry says: ‘Victim on hearing her neighbours in their house has put her ear up to their door to hear what they are talking about. In a conversation they have referred to her as [redacted] and made remarks of trying to get her moved out.’

Another reads: ‘Witness has had parking issues with her next-door neighbour, their children apparently throw stones and balls over the garden fence. Witness has recently found a dead rat in garden and perceives this to be racist.

On another occasion, a resident in a block of flats reported that a neighbour was racially abusing them by ‘smoking heavily’.

Meanwhile, an angry father called police after his daughter lost a tennis match to complain the defeat was due to a racist umpire. ‘Informant feels his daughter was subjected to racial discrimination at a tennis match where line calls went against her,’ the incident log reads.

Other arguments involved unhappy customers in shops, pubs and on public transport. They include one person who felt a bus driver had given them a ‘racist look’ and a woman thrown out of a pub for being ‘drunk, aggressive and erratic’ who told police she had been targeted ‘because she is Polish’.

In a separate complaint, a pupil struggling in a swimming lesson reported his teacher for ‘faith-based abuse’ for speaking to him in an ‘abrupt manner’.

Current rules mean police have to record any allegation described as motivated by prejudice as a hate incident, even if it is insufficiently serious to be regarded as a crime. And control room staff are required to note down the details even if the informant does not want any action to be taken.

Scotland Yard has withdrawn claims it has 900 officers dedicated to investigating alleged hate crimes.

Met police chiefs were criticised for bragging about the resources during a surge in London murders. One tweet boasted: ‘We have 900+ specialist officers dedicated to investigating all hate crime.’

All references have now been removed after the force admitted that while 900 detectives working with Community Safety and Safeguarding Units in each of London’s boroughs have had hate crime training, they devote most of their time to investigating domestic abuse.

It said: ‘We found a number of tweets gave the impression 900 officers were “dedicated” to the investigation of hate crime… This information was incorrect and at the first opportunity was removed.’
