The new leader of the National Union of Students has been elected on a platform of calling for a national strike at Britain’s universities. Zamzam Ibrahim, 24, said in her manifesto the strike would be for free education, better maintenance grants for less wealthy students and the return of a post-study work visa for people from abroad, her manifesto says. Ms Ibrahim sparked controversy in 2017 when online posts she made as a 16-year-old came to light, which said she wanted to ‘oppress white people’ and see an ‘Islamic takeover’. She insists they were ‘taken out of context’ and her views have changed .Ms Ibrahim was president of the students’ union at Salford University and is the third female ethnic minority NUS leader in a row, taking the reins from Shakira Martin. She also claims that racism is ‘running rampant on our campuses’. – Full article can be read here – Jaydafransen.online.
Anne Marie Waters, has been banned for the second time from speaking at Warwick University. She was originally supposed to give a talk to the Warwick University PPE Society in October of 2018 but this was cancelled due to pressure from Warwick Labour, Pride, Anti-Sexism Society, Anti-Racism Society, Student-Staff Solidarity , Socialist Worker and others. Technically , her talk was rescheduled for January 9th 2019 but subsequently when in fact she was invited back it was cancelled yet again. In response to this Anne Marie posted her lecture on YouTube where , at the time of writing ( one day after it was posted ) it has already attracted over 10,000 views.

January 1. Four British jihadis, sentenced to life in prison for planning a major terror attack in Birmingham, received nearly £800,000 (€900,000; $1 million) in taxpayer-funded legal aid to cover their failed defense, according to information obtained through a freedom of information request. Khobaib Hussain, 25, Naweed Ali, 30, Mohibur Rahman, 33, and Tahir Aziz, 38, received £790,485 to pay for lawyers. Some £635,822 went to the trial lawyers; each of the defendants was represented by a Queen’s Counsel and junior barrister. The billing process is not yet complete; the final figure likely to be higher.
January 3. Each lone child migrant in Britain costs taxpayers nearly £70,000 a year — £67,634 — according to the Association of Directors of Children’s Services. Expenses include £50,716 for residential placement and linked care costs, £4,805 for education, £3,915 for healthcare and £3,826 for social workers. For each lone child migrant, councils also typically pay £440 for interpreters and child advocates, £480 for English language lessons, £70 for dentists and £20 for doctor registration. Home Office statistics show that there are currently at least 4,500 unaccompanied youngsters seeking asylum in Britain — and costing taxpayers more than £300 million a year. Town halls are legally responsible for all costs associated with each child under their care until they are 25.
January 4. Police investigating the sale of illegal cigarettes, drug dealing and human trafficking in Nottingham were warned to stay away from a “Kurdish street,” said to be under the control of Middle Eastern gangsters. Police Constable Lee Wilson told Nottingham Magistrates’ Court:
“Illicit tobacco was being used to fund criminality, primarily drug supply and human trafficking. Senior members of Kurdish organized crime have been using it to fund criminality in the Radford Road area. A Kurdish businessman offered us £5,000 (€5,500; $6,400) a month to cease the tobacco investigation. With others involved in the operation, we had a search dog and were told, ‘police are not welcome on the street.’ It was described as a ‘Kurdish street.’
January 5. Security Minister Ben Wallace admitted that the British government had lost track of the whereabouts of hundreds of Britons fighting for jihadi groups in the Middle East. He told BBC Radio 4’s Today program that around half of the estimated 850 people from the UK who went to Syria and Iraq have returned home, but that the government “does not know where” to find those still in the region.

Over the weekend Gunmen said to be from the Islamic State opened fire on a bus carrying Christian worshippers returning from a remote Coptic Christian monastery in upper Egypt on Friday, killing at least eight and wounding 13. Six of those killed were from the same family, according to a post on the Facebook page of the Coptic Orthodox Church in Egypt.
The Persecution of Christians in Muslim majority countries is awash with ill treatment, violence and bloodshed. In a statement, the Islamic militants claimed that they had killed 13 and wounded 18, and that the attack was in response to the jailing of females they claim to be their supporters by the Egyptian government.
The Islamic scriptures not only condones the killing of unbelievers but calls for it as an act of submission. Freedom of religion should be an international value and the international community should standing united on the condemnation of this atrocity.
For Britain calls on Theresa May to condemn the persecution of minority faiths in the strongest term and withdraw aid from Egypt with immediate effect. Our government cannot continue to support a country that practices medieval murder and overtly supports terrorist organisations.

On the day following the Orlando , Florida shootings in june 2016 Mark Steyn made a broadcast which , for me , is one of the finest I have ever heard. It has that intimate and very personal quality which , for the most part , radio alone seems to be able to capture. I don’t know where or by what means this was originally recorded or if it was originally commissioned by The Henry Jackson Society , but whatever the back story it is for me a classic. It says everything that needs to be said about that night in Orlando – and more , much more about our own dilemma at this time……
