    Dominic Cummings now admitting on BBC & SKY that he has more and very serious stories/allegations regarding the PM and will not cease until he has got rid of him out of office….

    I’m beginning to think that its going to boil down to who Sue Gray believes

    Well at least we now know his true motives..

    What a seriously twisted and bitter individual he is…Perhaps therapy may help.

    Very disappointing

    I turned on The World at One to hear the latest propaganda against nut nut – such as a dodgy ‘tory’ muslim MP girl playing the victim card –
    But instead i got ‘news’ apparently the BBC has finally realised we are on thd brink of war .
    Surely a few beers with cheese in the number 10 garden is more important ? Get heseltine ((£)) on to spread poison …

      Nusrat Ghani: PM orders Cabinet Office to investigate ‘Muslimness’ claim

      Published14 minutes ago

      ….

      The word Islam means Peace, but for nearly 1,400 years its adherents have waged war–frequently on the grandest and most successful scales in history. This book introduces some of Islam’s greatest military figures and analyzes significant events that are shaping the modern world. …

      … on another site …

      The Meaning of Islam

      Islam is an Arabic word that denotes submission, surrender, and obedience. … The other literal meaning of the word “Islam” is “peace.” This signifies that one can achieve real peace of body and of mind only through submission and obedience to Allah.

      Dominic Cummings has revealed he has provided written evidence to the investigation into Downing Street parties during lockdown – and claims “other damaging stories” will emerge until Boris Johnson is out of office.

      Sue Gray is looking into parties and gatherings in Number 10 and other government departments during COVID-19 restrictions in 2020 and 2021.

        Wow ?
        Nope on the evidence so far, I am not outraged about a few people having a drink in a garden.

        From a Covid spreading point of view, being in a garden with work colleagues is nowhere near the same danger as traveling across the country and standing close INDOORS at a funeral or wedding event.
        .. Likewise Starmer is allowed to eat indoors with his staff
        I’m not particularly bothered if they have beer with their food too.

        But lying to start a war, like Tony Blair did
        is a whole different magnitude.

          Disagreeing may not be a good idea as i know opinions are strong but in my opinion, feelings against Blair such as “his lying to start a war” were media led . Reasons for going to war were made eg speech in Washington but were not broadcast or pubicised in the British media, so people could not make their own minds up . In another speech he made in Las Angeles the BBC newsreader just said this is what the PM MEANT to say. The BBC just kept repeating over and over that there were no weapons of mass destrucion. Saddam had ricin weapons and buried rocket arsenals in a lake.

          They’ll be telling us soon that Iran has no intentions of building up nucleur weapons.

            I did once meet a weapons inspector (support crew)
            he told me that all the time Saddam was pretending to have much more weapons than he had, for his own political purposes
            So working out the truth was hard
            .. the team eventually concluded that there probably weren’t any vast piles of hidden weapons, but couldn’t prove such a negative.
            generally I do support intervention
            and wish the rest of NATO hadn’t bottled out.

      Cummings sounds very much to me like a man who is so focussed on trying to oust the PM that he does not want to have any cross-examination of the spin on things that he wants to get into the public domain. So he is refusing to answer any questions or follow-ups, or even the slightest examination of the things he is saying, the way he is saying them, and even the very words he chooses. After delivering these ‘responses’ to Ms Gray, he will quickly move to having these ‘responses’ published in such places as the Guardian, Observer, BBC, etc., with neither context nor explanation….. the very same organisations which would never have touched him with a barge-pole a year ago will suddenly find him to be an eloquent exponent of the ‘truth’.

      Ms Gray should demand that he either meets her and her team face to face, or she will disregard his so-called ‘evidence’.

      You can imagine, of course, the furore that would have greeted Mr Johnston if he had taken the same stance with this inquiry.

        I sadly believe Boris Johnsons days as PM are over.

        And as for Sue Gray, i have done my research and rest assured she is a real Rottweiler and i genuinely believe the likes of Cummings and his waffle and innuendo will not fool her…He may have produced some real and seriously damaging evidence, we wait and see.

        Regardless Cummings will not stop until he has his scalp and as we know he has the help and quite readily of the BBC and other left wing media and publications.

        Carrie and Boris Johnson must have really pi–ed off Cummings.

        Is it not sad that we can destroy a government by people having a few drinks during lock down. A lock down i dare say where a massive majority of people broke the rules at some stage.

        Either way, it looks as though the BBC, Cummings and the left have got there man

      Manchester University students paint over Rudyard Kipling mural

      https://www.theguardian.com/education/2018/jul/19/manchester-university-students-paint-over-rudyard-kipling-mural

      If you can keep your head when all about you
      Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
      If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
      But make allowance for their doubting too;
      If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
      Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
      Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
      And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

      If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
      If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
      If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
      And treat those two impostors just the same;
      If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
      Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
      Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
      And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

      If you can make one heap of all your winnings
      And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
      And lose, and start again at your beginnings
      And never breathe a word about your loss;
      If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
      To serve your turn long after they are gone,
      And so hold on when there is nothing in you
      Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

      If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
      Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
      If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
      If all men count with you, but none too much;
      If you can fill the unforgiving minute
      With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
      Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
      And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

    As the BBC roll out its tanks to ‘save the TV license’, by so called media ‘experts (like Gary Linekar) UK viewers (most of us) know what needs to be done by Dorris. Telegraph readers are sure that the BBC has both paid itself far too much, badly managed, dinosaur mentality and (always) needs of more cash to promote its GUARDIAN world views by force (if necessary) via its control of most radio and TV. Many FreeView programs are ‘badged’ BBC content which the BBC also runs exclusively…

      I am tendering my resignation because for some time past I have been conscious that I was wasting my own time and the public money on doing work that produces no result. I believe that in the present political situation the broadcasting of British propaganda to India is an almost hopeless task. Whether these broadcasts should be continued at all is for others to judge, but I myself prefer not to spend my time on them when I could be occupying myself with journalism which does produce some measureable effect. I feel that by going back to the normal work of writing and journalism I could be more useful than I am at present.

      Hundreds of millions of pounds may have been wasted on a drug for flu that works no better than paracetamol, a landmark analysis has said.

      The UK has spent £473m on Tamiflu, which is stockpiled by governments globally to prepare for flu pandemics.

      The Cochrane Collaboration claimed the drug did not prevent the spread of flu or reduce dangerous complications, and only slightly helped symptoms.

      The manufacturers Roche and other experts say the analysis is flawed.

      Slavery
      Many societies throughout history have practised slavery, and Muslim societies were no exception.

      It’s thought that as many people were enslaved in the Eastern slave trade as in the Atlantic slave trade.

      It’s ironic that when the Atlantic slave trade was abolished the Eastern trade expanded, suggesting that for some Africans the abolition of the Atlantic trade didn’t lead to freedom, but merely changed their slave destination.

    Boris suffers major blow as minister quits at dispatch box before storming out
    A MINISTER sensationally resigned at the dispatch box this afternoon as he attacked the Government’s “desperately inadequate” response to Covid fraud.

    https://www.express.co.uk/news/politics/1555066/boris-johnson-news-lord-agnew-quits-covid-loan-fraud-house-of-lords-latest

    Lord Agnew insisted his resignation was in “no way linked” to the so-called partygate scandal that has embroiled the Government in recent weeks.

    Instead he appeared to blame the civil service, saying: “Any prime minister of this country should be able to reasonably expect, when taking on the mantle of power, that the levers of Government were actually connected to delivering services for our citizens.”

    He added: “It has certainly not been through want of trying, but the Government machine has been almost impregnable to my endless exhortations.”

    These notes, apparently typed straight down after each day’s impressions, form the record of Orwell’s interaction with the Northern working class before the stage when he turned his experience into pamphleteering. The observation is compressed and merciless: ‘There is no turbulence left in England’, Orwell wrote despairingly after a sheepish social got up by the Wigan branch of the National Unemployed Workers Movement. The biggest public meeting is an audience of 700 workers in Barnsley to hear Mosley; they applaud him, and let the Blackshirt stewards beat up questioners. The unemployed workers’ discussion-group that Orwell attends in Leeds emerges as pro-German when the talk turns to Europe.

    Journalist lies about Brexit:

    APOLOGY AND CORRECTION PUBLISHED BY THE DAILY TELEGRAPH, FRIDAY 4 JUNE:
    “[The Daily Telegraph] article may have given the impression that Wetherspoons, in common with
    other companies in the hospitality sector, was struggling to recruit staff. In fact, Wetherspoons is
    not facing staff shortages or recruitment issues. We apologise for any confusion and are happy to
    correct the record.”
    Released : 02 Jun 2021 13:20
    JD WETHERSPOON PLC
    NEWS RELEASE – CORRECTION
    “The Telegraph newspaper published an article online yesterday (“Wetherspoons boss calls for more
    EU migration as bars and restaurants tackle staff shortage” – 1 June 2021), which misrepresented
    Wetherspoon’s position.
    The Telegraph journalist contacted Tim Martin, the Wetherspoon chairman, and requested
    comments regarding reports of staff shortages in the hospitality industry generally.
    Following the press query, Mr Martin personally made enquiries within the company and, in
    subsequent texts to the journalist, said “anecdotal feedback from … pubs since reopening [is that
    there are] lots of people applying generally.”
    Mr Martin’s texts also said that for a “new pub opening last week (in a town in North Yorkshire), for
    example, [there were] 160 applications for 70 jobs.”
    Mr Martin’s texts added that “there were 20 applications for four vacancies” in a Bedfordshire pub
    and there was “a good volume of applications for vacancies in Bletchley and Milton Keynes”.
    Mr Martin concluded that it was “a reasonably good position for JDW in the country” and that
    “recruitment is more challenging in some seaside towns- but that’s no different to what we
    experience in any year.”
    The anecdotal evidence provided by Mr Martin was not reported by the journalist, who instead said
    that “British pubs and restaurants struggle to recruit staff in the post-pandemic labour market
    squeeze”.
    The journalist also said “pub and restaurant bosses warned they were being forced to shut sites
    during the crucial lunchtime trade due to a shortage of workers”, which the article implied was a
    problem for Wetherspoon- and which is clearly not true from the evidence provided by Mr Martin to
    the journalist.
    The article also said that Mr Martin “urged Boris Johnson to introduce a visa scheme for EU
    workers”.
    In fact, Mr Martin has had no contact whatsoever with Mr Johnson since he became Prime Minister.

    Brits shocked after pub chain prints book of corrections from news outlets who made ‘untrue statements’ about founder during Covid

    Brits on social media were shocked this week after JD Wetherspoon – one of the UK’s largest pub chains – printed and distributed a magazine of apologies from news outlets who had made “untrue statements” about the company.

    After the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns prohibited pubs from opening last year, JD Wetherspoon and its founder Tim Martin were accused by several news outlets of telling staff to “work for Tesco,” a supermarket company, until pubs reopened.

    Martin denied using that term and claimed he had merely informed employees that supermarkets were in need of staff; the allegations in the news were eventually retracted, with some organisations even issuing apologies.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-60088244

    This story came up on my phone and it was very clear. A man was stabbing a woman over and over saying ‘take it, take it’ when he turned and went to go for people nearby trying to stop him. As he went for them, a car drove into him and he was ignored shouting for help underneath it while they tried to help the woman.

    This BBC report however implies that the murderer is the man driving the car !!!. They are absolutely and deliberately avoiding any acknowledgement that the man hit by the car stabbed the woman.

    Climate-related deaths in England and Wales fell between 2001 and 2020, according to a new analysis of data by the Office of National Statistics.

    Hot days saw more injuries, violence and suicide but the relatively small rise in deaths was offset by warmer winter temperatures resulting in fewer.

    Climate change is a substantial threat to human health globally.

    Scientists do not yet have enough information about the health impact to make a prediction about the future.

    But the trends showing a changing climate are very clear, ONS epidemiology in climate and global health head Myer Glickman told BBC News.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-60024156

    NOT ENOUGH EVIDENCE… VERY CLEAR … NOT … CLEAR .. ENOUGH … IS …ENOUGH …

    Mental health is a growing concern linked to climate change with the risk of death for patients with mental illnesses increasing by approximately 5% for every 1 degree Celsius increase in temperature. Certain medications may increase the relative risk of death by 7% to 8% per 1 degree Celsius increase in temperature above 18 degrees Celsius and people with mental health conditions may be unable to self-care appropriately in extreme weather.

    A driver ran over and killed a knifeman to stop him stabbing a woman, a witness claimed today – as he described how the hooded attacked ‘lay in wait’ for his victim, who also died.

    Jiyad Raad, 52, who lives locally, told how he and another passer-by confronted the attacker while he was stabbing the woman during the ‘horrific’ incident near two schools at 9am today, but he waved his knife at the pair and ordered them to ‘get back’.

    Horror on the school-run: Hero driver ‘ran over and killed knifeman to stop frenzied attack on woman’: Witness claims hooded assailant ‘lay in wait’ for female victim who died from stab wounds in west London street

    Metropolitan Police officers are called to stabbing in Maida Vale, West London, during rush hour
    When they got to the scene at about 9am today they also found a man who had been hit by a car
    Firefighters freed man who was trapped under vehicle but both were declared dead at the scene
    Police launch ‘urgent investigation’ ahead of post-mortem examinations but have made no arrests
    A driver ran over and killed a knifeman to stop him stabbing a woman, a witness claimed today – as he described how the hooded attacked ‘lay in wait’ for his victim, who also died.

    Jiyad Raad, 52, who lives locally, told how he and another passer-by confronted the attacker while he was stabbing the woman during the ‘horrific’ incident near two schools at 9am today, but he waved his knife at the pair and ordered them to ‘get back’.

    The attack only ended when a passing motorist drove into the man who ended up pinned under the wheels of the driver’s blue Renault Clio, with dozens of children attending the nearby secondary school heard screaming at what they had seen.

    Mr Raad said the driver got out of his car and tried to chase the knifeman away, saying ‘I want to stop him’ before getting back into his car and running him over.

    Witnesses said the female victim was white, the assailant was black and they were both aged in their 20s.

    One bystander said the incident was ‘something one sees in movies, not in real life’. Police were firstly dispatched to reports of a stabbing, but when they got to the scene they also found the man who had been hit by a car.

    Paramedic teams from the London Ambulance Service were called as well as crews from London Fire Brigade, who freed the man as he was trapped under the vehicle, but both victims were declared dead at the scene.

    Mr Raad told MailOnline today how he ran into the street after being alerted by the victim’s desperate screams, saying: ‘It was horrific. He was repeatedly plunging the knife into her. It was a 10cm (4in) long kitchen knife.

    ‘The woman was screaming for help but he did not stop. He was stabbing her in the neck and the side and the stomach as she was lying on the floor. She had her hands up trying to protect herself.

    ‘I ran towards him and we pleaded with him to stop. He then turned on us and raised the knife up and was threatening to stab us. He was saying ‘Get back. Get back.’ We couldn’t get near him.

    ‘We couldn’t do anything to stop him. He was waving the knife at us then kept turning to stab the woman again. She must have been stabbed ten times. I tried to distract him but he wouldn’t stop.

    ‘He was only stopped when the driver ran his car over him. He drove fast enough that the attacker went beneath the car and was pinned under the wheels. He was asking people to get him out but we couldn’t lift up the car.

    ‘He was shouting ‘Please. Please help me’. The woman was also stuck under the car because her coat was under one of the wheels. I was trying to help the woman. There was blood everywhere.

    Metropolitan Police officers investigate at the scene in Maida Vale, West London, this afternoon following the double death

    A Metropolitan Police officer in a forensic suit at the scene on Chippenham Road in Maida Vale this afternoon. The attack only ended when a passing motorist drove into the man who ended up pinned under the wheels of the driver’s blue Renault Clio

    ‘I got blood all over my hands as I tried to stop her bleeding. She was breathing very heavily. In the end there was nothing we could do to save her. The driver was a young man. He was in a state of shock.

    ‘I told him it was the only (way) to stop him. The police came and lifted the car up on a jack and took him from under the vehicle then put the attacker into an ambulance. He had been under the vehicle for about 15 minutes and he did not survive. This all happened before 9am as people were taking their children to school.

    ‘The attacker was a black man in his 20s who was wearing a hood and a mask. It seemed as if he knew the woman he attacked and had been lying in wait for her.’

    Mr Raad said the two men were not known to each other but he believed both dead victims did know each other. He said: ‘The man who arrived in the blue car, which was a Renault, was scared about what happened.

    ‘We spoke to each other and he tried to stop the guy with the knife. I don’t think either of the men knew each other already but I think the man with the knife and the woman knew each other.

      Will we be having night-time vigils for the dead woman and lots of angry women demanding action is taken to stop anything similar happening again ?.

      Or will it be quickly dropped.

      We all the know the answer. It’s the most disgusting of double standards. And I’m fairly certain that most of the twitter mob don’t even realise just what hypocrites they are : they are whipped up into a frenzy by the misandrist activists and swept along in group-think.

    Who knew that the BBC could dig out so many Muslims so quickly, that those Muslims would all suggest the Tory Party has a problem with Islamophobia and that Boris, for several reasons, needs to resign, and that the BBC would insistently ask if the Tory Party is Islamophobic and ‘should Boris resign’? Who would have thought. I’m guessing they hope to do as much damage as possible and get rid of Boris before the government can rein in the BBC…this isn’t news, this is the BBC abusing its power and influence to try and change a government and to remove a Prime Minister….with a little help from Tory insiders…Ghani doesn’t like Boris, he sacked her and she’d previously voted for Hunt for leader…any doubts someone put her up to this after years of silence?

    Much of the BBC ‘s day given over to Muslim mudslingers….haven’t heard a single person on to be given the chance to refute any of this…the BBC is reporting it as fact. The Whip, Mark Spencer, gets no voice other than his statement that he never said any of these things…tacked quickly onto the end of very long reports on the issue and thjat’s it for the defence.

    They had a Muslim councillor on who sounded very definitely gay…maybe stereotyping, but probably right….the BBC asked him if he was still proud to be a Tory and would he stay in the Party? Hmmm….so the BBC has already passed judgement? Why not ask him if he, as a gay Muslim, is proud to be a Muslim considering the religion’s zealous homophobia[amongst so many other ‘phobias]…and will he stay a Muslim? Oddly that’s a question the BBC will never ask.

    One question they do ask is can we get rid of ‘Whiteness’?…maybe ‘Kill Whitey’ eh?….and of course the BBC frequently sacks white men to make way for blacks and women. Their whiteness’ and ‘maleness’ was seen as a problem by other staff.

    So….an inquiry needed and should Tim Davie resign?

    Ok, of course they have the right to choose what goes into their bodies.

    Now, as a vaccinated patient DO I HAVE THE RIGHT laid in a hospital bed to
    a) ask if the nurse/doctor has been vaccinated ?
    or
    b) also HAVE THE RIGHT to refuse to be treated by an unvaccinated member of staff ?

    because the argument is based on HAVING THE ‘RIGHT’ which should work both ways.

    Today is deadline day for Greene King to rename the Black Bitch pub in Linlithgow to the Black Hound – because ONE visitor to the area objected to the name. 11,000 people have signed a petition to keep the decades old name as it was never intended as a racist comment, as had been indicated, but has a historic tale to the region. The dog happens to be black and is female – (bitch).

    Once again a corporate company has kowtowed to the minority – this time its a single complaint.

    If Greene King continue to go ahead with this, then surely the community should boycott the pub !

    Censored by the BBC

    Vaccine deaths are mostly hidden within the 14 day scam. They are attributed to deaths by the unvaccinated. In an unprecedented letter of condemnation, the head of the Office for Statistics Regulation (OSR), Ed Humpherson, criticised the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) for providing statements “Unsupported by the data” and demanded much greater transparency on health data. Problems with the Office for National Statistics (ONS) data originate from the UKHSA. In fact the Covid rules imposed by the UKHSA are identical to those imposed by the US Centers for Disease Control. This links the British rules with Dr Fauci. Both the USA rules and the UK rules classify people as unvaccinated up to 16 days after they have been vaccinated. All the data manipulation seems to originate from Dr Fauci, and then everyone else follows the consensus.

    UK POLICE LAUNCH MAJOR INVESTIGATION INTO MRNA COVID‐19 VACCINE‐RELATED CORPORATE CRIMES AND THREATS TO PUBLIC HEALTH

    Metropolitan Police Crime Number: 6029679/21. International Criminal Court (The Hague) Case number: OTP‐CR‐473/21

    The world’s largest‐ever international criminal investigation is now under‐way, involving Hammersmith Police and The Metropolitan Police.

    The UK police accepted the supporting information and agreed there is enough evidence to proceed under the above crime number.

    The case was lodged on 20th December 2021 by Sam White MD; Philip Hyland (PJH Law); Lois Bayliss (Broad Yorkshire Law) and retired policeman Mark Sexton; requests for assistance have been made to the likes of:

    International Lawyer Robert F Kennedy Jnr (US) (nephew of JF Kennedy); Dr Reiner Fuellmich (German Corporate Lawyer who won the case against Volkswagen Audi’s emissions scandal); Dr. Michael Yeadon (Ex CEO of Pfizer); plus countless other doctors, professors, virologists, biologists, data experts and lawyers nationally and internationally; some of whom have already made direct contact with the police and have been acknowledged by Cressida Dick’s personal assistant, Superintendent Simpson.

    The complaint alleges (among other things) misfeasance and misconduct in public office; gross negligence manslaughter; corporate manslaughter, murder, conspiracy to murder, genocide and crimes against humanity.

    The evidence submitted by Philip Hyland and Dr Sam White against the MHRA is damning and shows they did not carry out due diligence surrounding the vaccine data, trials and studies and that they continued to ignore the death, harm and injury the vaccines cause.

    Mark Sexton says: “This is now a live criminal investigation. We were forced to act due to the complacency of the UK Government, despite them being fully aware of the catastrophic death and injury figures to adults and children alike. This is nothing short of genocide; once again it seems that profit over people is the overriding motive. There is a deliberate blanket campaign of misinformation underway. Many don’t even realise this is still an experimental product. Two months testing for a drug that needs five years testing for the old and vulnerable, and twelve years testing for everyone else. If people want unassailable current evidence, I’d suggest in the interim they look at https://www.saveusnow.org.uk/covid‐vaccine‐scientific‐proof‐lethal/

    “In years to come this will be the equivalent of another Thalidomide scandal, but for now we have to act on a united front to get the truth out to the public and stop the unsafe vaccine rollout.

    “We have several thousand pieces of evidence to discredit the safety and efficacy of this vaccine, but we are still encouraging members of the public to further support our claim.”

    “We therefore appeal to anyone who has suffered the death of a loved one after receipt of the vaccine; anyone who has been injured – from blindness to heart issues; blood clots; strokes; myocarditis etc.

    “We’d also like to hear from those illegally threatened with No jab, no job.”

    “This is the most far‐reaching enquiry ever undertaken. A national scandal that threatens the lives and the livelihoods of every person in the UK. We must act now.”

    If you have information to assist the police enquiry, please contact Lois Bayliss of Broad Yorkshire Law: loisbayliss@broadyorkshirelaw.co.uk

    BBC Radio 4 13.45hrs Mon-Fri – TRUST THE BBC TO GET IT WRONG!

    The BBC are celebrating 2022 as the centenary of modernism. I always thought it was around 1904 that modernism got underway with the Bauhaus coming along 15 years later. The BBC pin their hopes on ” In 1922 Vladimir Shukhov built a tower (The Shabolovka Tower) in Moscow radically modernist in purpose – to transmit radio – and in design. He used a diagonally intersecting framework, his diagrid system, which uses less steel and requires no columns. ” The tower was completed in 1922.

    Except he didn’t. The design was probably drawn before 1919 and a prototype was built earlier than that in 1896 in Nizhny Novgorod. There is no real start date for Modernism but just different events that create a groundswell: exhibitions, publications, buildings, schools, etc.

        TAXPAYERS picked up a £600,000 legal bill after the Home Office lost a court case against four asylum “tourists” who refused to leave the country.
        21:40, Mon, Feb 27, 2017 | UPDATED: 21:46, Mon, Feb 27, 2017

        The biggest bill last year was for a case against an Iranian man and three Eritreans, who flouted immigration rules after claiming refugee status in Italy and then again in the UK.

        The Court of Appeal ruled in favour of Theresa May, who was then Home Secretary. But the refugees took the case to the Supreme Court, which allowed their appeal.

      Polish borders – 10 troops sent.

      As the fleet crosses the Indian Ocean, the political situation in France becomes more charged. At a press conference about the crisis, a French official who offers a speech in praise of the refugees is confronted by a journalist who claims he is merely trying to “feed the invaders” and demands to know if France will “have the courage to stand up to” the migrants when they reach France. The official decries this question as morally offensive and threatens to throw the journalist out when he continues to yell. Other journalists seek to inflame tensions between the French and Africans and Arabs already living in the country. Over time, these journalists begin to write that the migrant fleet is on a mission to “enrich, cleanse and redeem the Capitalist West”. At the same time as the fleet is praised by those in Paris, the people of Southern France, terrified of the migrants’ arrival, flee to the north.

      As the fleet approaches the Suez Canal, Egyptian military forces fire a warning shot, causing the fleet to steer south, around the Cape of Good Hope. To the surprise of observers, the apartheid regime of South Africa floats out barges of food and supplies, which the migrants throw overboard. The international press is thrilled, believing the rejection of these supplies to be a political statement against the apartheid South African regime. Western leaders, confident the refugees will accept supplies from their “more virtuous” nations, organize a supply mission, funded by governments, charities, rock stars and major churches, to meet the refugees off São Tomé. However, the fleet does not stop for these barges either, and when a worker from the Papal barge attempts to board one of the ships, he is strangled and thrown overboard. The press attempts to contain coverage of the disaster.
