(ENGLAND) #ClimateChange Report: Dragonflies are moving northwards across Britain and Ireland as temperatures rise #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Sept.09: Experts from the British Dragonfly Society say it’s an indicator of the effects of climate change……

#AceDailyNews says that according to BBC Environment Correspondent due to Climate Change Dragonflies spread north in warming world as the world experiences ‘Global Warming’ with more than 40% of species having increased their distribution since 1970, while only about 10% have declined, according to a new report.

There is concern over the loss of populations of insects due to factors such as pollution and habitat loss.

Conservation officer Eleanor Colver said while their data can determine where dragonflies are, it cannot determine exactly how many there are – and whether numbers have increased overall. 

“Factors such as the use of pesticides (reducing their flying insect prey), water pollution and habitat loss continue to threaten the health of dragonfly populations within species’ existing ranges,” she said.

Dave SmallshireThe small red-eyed damselfly: Now found from Cornwall to County Durham

The report, State of Dragonflies 2021, incorporates 1.4 million records from 17,000 recorders gathered from 1970 onwards.

It assesses the fortunes of 46 species of dragonflies and their close relative – the damselflies – across Britain and Ireland.

Since 1995, several species have reached Britain from southern Europe for the first time – and at least two more have reappeared after long absences.

Species expanding their range include the emperor dragonfly, migrant hawker, ruddy darter, black-tailed skimmer and small red-eyed damselfly.

In contrast, some upland and northern dragonflies are in retreat, including the common hawker and black darter, perhaps because of the loss of peatbogs or extreme droughts.

“The increase in many species, if not all, we can put down to a combination of climate warming and more or better wetland habitats such as an increase in the number of ponds, lakes, gravel-pits and reservoirs in recent decades,” said Dave Smallshire, co-editor of the report.

But people should not get the message that all is “tickety-boo with dragonflies”, he added. 

“The overwhelming message is that global climate change – and in the case of Britain and Ireland – significant climate warming is likely to have had an over-riding effect on many of these changes,” he said.

Iain H LeachBlack darter: With a home in upland bogs, this species is in decline

Dragonflies are fast-flying, four-winged insects with long bodies and large eyes. They were some of the first winged insects to evolve, some 300 million years ago.

Scientists are increasingly concerned about the decline of some populations of insects.

One scientific review of insect numbers in 2019 pointed to 40% of species undergoing “dramatic rates of decline” around the world.

The study said bees, ants and beetles were disappearing eight times faster than mammals, birds or reptiles, while other species, such as houseflies and cockroaches, were likely to boom.

(DAMASCUS) SANA REPORT: Despite the difficult situation that Syria is going through, we have stood committed to our membership in the Chemical Weapons Convention,” Syria’s official news agency quoted Mekdad as saying in a meeting with ambassadors and heads of diplomatic missions on Thursday evening #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.17: He added, “Syria and many other countries have acknowledged that the states which supported and funded armed terrorist groups in Syria, particularly the United States, France, Germany and Britain, will use the Syrian chemical file and the OPCW to achieve their hostile goals against Syria.”

FM Mekdad: US, allies have turned OPCW into a tool to pursue anti-Syria objectives: BUT Syrian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Faisal Mekdad has categorically dismissed the new report by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), stating that the United States and its allies have turned the international watchdog into a tool to pursue their political goals against Damascus’

Mekdad noted that Syrian government forces continue to score remarkable victories in their battles against the Takfiri terrorist groups, emphasizing that the troops have never used chemical warfare even in toughest operations against the foreign-sponsored militants.

OPCW likely to repeat claims about chemical weapons use in Syria: Russian diplomat

OPCW likely to repeat claims about chemical weapons use in Syria: Russian diplomatA senior Russian diplomat warns against attempts to incriminate the Damascus government and Syrian army troops at the OPCW over alleged chemical weapons use in the war-ravaged country.

He went on to say that certain Western countries have established the OPCW’s so-called Investigation and Identification Team (IIT) in order to produce reports, which best suit their anti-Syria agenda.

“The French-Western draft resolution, which is to be presented at the 25th meeting of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons later this year, is a new chapter in the series of conspiracies against Syria,” Mekdad pointed out.

The top Syrian diplomat finally called on the OPCW member states to support Damascus and counter the politicization of the organization’s activities by some Western countries.

A report by the OPCW’s so-called investigative arm claimed on Monday that Syria’s air force had dropped a chlorine bomb on a residential neighborhood in the terrorist-controlled Idlib region.

The report further asserted no one was killed when the cylinder of chlorine gas, delivered in a barrel bomb, hit the al-Talil neighborhood in the city of Saraqib in February 2018.

The Syrian foreign ministry, in a statement published on Wednesday, said the OPCW’s “misleading report,” written by “an illegitimate and incredible team,” fabricates “facts” to incriminate the Damascus government.

Syria rejects ‘fabricated’ OPCW report on alleged 2018 gas attack in Saraqib

Syria rejects ‘fabricated’ OPCW report on alleged 2018 gas attack in SaraqibSyria dismisses as “false and fabricated” the results of a probe by the OPCW into an alleged chemical attack in Saraqib in February 2018.

“This report has included false and fabricated conclusion which represents another scandal for the OPCW and the inquiry teams that will be added to the scandal of the reports of Douma incident in 2018, and Ltamenah in 2017,” it said.

Moscow and Damascus have on many occasions said members of the so-called White Helmets civil defense group stage gas attacks in a bid to falsely incriminate Syrian government forces and fabricate pretexts for military strikes by the US-led military coalition.

The group claims to be a humanitarian NGO but has long been accused of collaborating with anti-Damascus militants.

On April 14, 2018, the US, Britain and France carried out a string of airstrikes against Syria over a suspected chemical weapons attack on the city of Douma, located about 10 kilometers northeast of the capital Damascus.

'External pressure behind OPCW altering facts on Douma attack'

‘External pressure behind OPCW altering facts on Douma attack’Retired US army colonel Lawrence Wilkerson says international organizations such as OPCW at times come under pressure from certain countries to “alter the facts.”

Washington and its allies blamed Damascus for the Douma attack, a charge the Syrian government rejected.

Western governments and their allies have never stopped pointing the finger at Damascus whenever an apparent chemical attack takes place.

This is while Syria surrendered its stockpile of chemical weapons in 2014 to a joint mission led by the United States and the OPCW, which oversaw the destruction of the weaponry. It has consistently denied using chemical weapons.

Britain Pulls Spies Out of Russia, China — “Our agents and assets being targeted” as a Result of Snowden, Cyber Hacking, Leaks

Originally posted on Peace and Freedom:

LONDON (Reuters) – Britain has pulled out agents from live operations in “hostile countries” after Russia and China cracked top-secret information contained in files leaked by former U.S. National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, the Sunday Times reported.

Security service MI6, which operates overseas and is tasked with defending British interests, has removed agents from certain countries, the newspaper said, citing unnamed officials at the office of British Prime Minister David Cameron, the Home Office (interior ministry) and security services.

Snowden downloaded more than 1.7 million secret files from security agencies in the United States and Britain in 2013, and leaked details about…

#BREAKING: MP’s Overwhemlingly Back Plans for Referendum on UK Membership of EU

#AceBreakingNews – Britain:June.09: MPs have overwhelmingly backed plans for a referendum on the UK’s membership of the European Union.

The vote, which followed the first debate on the EU Referendum Bill, means the legislation moves to the next stage of its progress through Parliament.

Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said a “generation” had been denied a say on the UK’s place in Europe, and the public must now have the “final say”.




#AceNewsServices – Editors Featured Post:BRITAIN:Dec.29: On Christmas Eve just after all the shops have closed and people have bought all their Christmas Food & Fayre. The parcel and delivery firm City Link announces it is going into, administration putting 2,000 peoples jobs at risk.

The Guardian reports today that the founder of City Link’s parent company has denied the firm’s collapse was mishandled and apologised to more than 2,000 workers who found out on Christmas Day that they would lose their jobs. Jon Moulton said the directors of Better Capital, which owns the parcel delivery firm, were very sorry about its collapse and the fallout for its workforce.

The veteran venture capitalist claimed that taxpayers would not foot much of a bill for redundancy payments for the firm’s staff as City Link had “paid a fortune” in taxes since it was taken over by Better Capital in April 2013. More than 2,000 City Link staff are facing redundancy on New Year’s Eve and company administrators EY have been unable to reach a deal with trade union bosses desperate to save the jobs.

The RMT union has urged the business secretary, Vince Cable, to rescue the company but Moulton said the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills was aware of City Link’s collapse before Christmas and did not request a meeting.

Government Press Release:

The administrators for the delivery firm City Link have confirmed they anticipate a substantial number of redundancies in the coming days.The administrators will have the opportunity to consult employee representatives about redundancies.

There are special arrangements for employees dismissed on the insolvency of their employer which guarantees a basic minimum of payments from the National Insurance Fund (NIF), administered by the Redundancy Payments Service in the Insolvency Service.

This covers redundancy and other contractual payments, within limits, and aims to pays 80% of claims within 3 weeks after the claim is received. The payments are made from the National Insurance Fund under provisions contained in the Employment Rights Act 1996. All payments are subject to legal limits in both the period that they can be paid and the maximum weekly amount – currently £464.00 per week.

Thought the statutory scheme does not cover payments due to self-employed contractors or agency workers. City Link employees and contractors (as creditors) should contact the administrators, Ernst and Young in the first instance. Agency workers should contact their respective agencies.

The sale by pest control company Rentokil Initial to Better Capital took place in April 2013 when it sold its parcel delivery firm City Link for £1, after years of losses.

Rentokil acquired City Link in 2006, but City Link has lost money since 2007, including £26m in 2012.

It has struggled in the face of weakening demand for its services from small businesses.

It is now being offloaded to restructuring specialist Better Capital, who are expected to invest £40m into the business.

Better Capital has recently invested in fashion retailer Jaeger and double-glazing firm Everest.

City Link will continue to be run by its existing management team, Rentokil said in a statement.

Rentokil chief executive Alan Brown said: "I believe City Link has now turned the corner after five years of substantial losses."

Mr Moulton, founder of investment business Better Capital, told Radio 4’s Today programme: "We chased every possible way to save this company." and have invested £40 million but keeping it open any longer is illegal and in breach of insolvency rules.

Editors Comment:

Well what a great bit of jiggery pokery as investing just £40 million was barely enough to keep it going and closing it now with it there still being about 40,000 parcels at City Link depots across the country, to be collected by customers, will help to offset loses and as it was purchased show a debt-book able to offset these against future investments.

#AceNewsServices – LONDON – October 31 – Fiona Woolf is to step down as the head of an inquiry into historic child sex abuse, she has told the BBC.

She said it had been clear for some time that victims did not have confidence in her, adding that it was time to “get out of the way”.

Victims’ groups earlier told government officials they were “unanimous” she should quit, citing her social links with ex-Home Secretary Lord Brittan.

Home Secretary Theresa May said she had accepted her decision “with regret”.

“I believe she would have carried out her duties with integrity, impartiality and to the highest standard,” she said in a statement.

Mrs May said she would make a further statement to Parliament about the inquiry on Monday.

However, Labour said the home secretary had “serious questions to answer” over her handling of the inquiry.

Prime Minister David Cameron had previously given Mrs Woolf his public backing.

‘Brewing for some time’

Mrs Woolf’s resignation comes after the first person appointed to lead the inquiry – Baroness Butler-Sloss – stepped down in July when concerns were raised about the fact that her late brother was attorney general during the 1980’s.

The independent inquiry was set up to look at how public bodies dealt with historic allegations of child sex abuse, however, victims’ groups have called for a statutory inquiry.

It follows claims over many years about paedophiles in powerful places and alleged establishment attempts to cover up their actions.

Now as some of you know l have an ailing mother who l have looked after for 5 years, and she has dementia. Oh its mild, but even mild dementia can cause such problems for the carer, in this case that is me.

IN A STATEMENT IT WAS SAID: He might have got away with it if it hadn’t been for his supermarket loyalty card. 

Alan Knight of Swansea, Wales, stole more than 40,000 pounds ($64,000) from the bank account of an elderly neighbor with Alzheimer’s disease, prosecutors said.

When police began investigating, the 47-year-old Knight claimed to be quadriplegic and so sick he sometimes fell into a coma.

He checked himself into a hospital to avoid court appearances, saying he was having seizures.

The South Wales Evening Post reported Wednesday that the suspect’s wife, Helen Knight, had written to the newspaper saying her husband had obtained a doctor’s letter certifying he was “quadriplegic and in a comatose condition, bed-bound at home” after a neck injury.

“We’ve been through absolute hell and we’re still going through hell,” she wrote, according to the newspaper.

Knight’s deceit was uncovered when police tracked the use of his supermarket card, and produced surveillance camera footage of him walking and driving.

Warned that the trial would go ahead whether he was present or not, Knight arrived at Swansea Crown Court Tuesday in a wheelchair and neck brace. Faced with the video evidence, he pleaded guilty to 19 counts of forgery, fraud and theft.

His wife has not been charged with any offense.

Judge Paul Thomas said Knight was “a very accomplished and determined actor … and the conditions he claims to be suffering from are simply nonexistent.”

Mayor Boris Johnson that he said Britain’s counter-terrorism forces are monitoring “thousands” of potential extremists in the metropolitan area.

The Daily Telegraph newspaper last Saturday quoted Johnson as saying the security forces in the London area are involved in “thousands of operations” every day. He said the number of people being watched is in the low thousands.

Five young men arrested earlier this week for questioning about a possible terrorist plot are still being held and a number of residences have been searched.

Government sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, have said the men arrested this week include one who recently returned from Syria and police are probing possible ties to the Islamic State group operating there.

British prosecutors say police found a dossier labelled “Plan A” in the home of a suspect accused of plotting a terrorist attack.

Erol Incedal is charged with preparing a terrorist act and possessing bomb-making instructions.

He denies the charges.

Prosecutors say the 26-year-old Incedal may have been planning indiscriminate Mumbai-style shootings or to attack a “significant” individual.

The address of former Prime Minister Tony Blair was found in his car.

Prosecutor Richard Whittam said Wednesday that police found a document headed “Plan A” in Incedal’s home after he was arrested in October 2013.

It listed “three to four workers, two tennis (rackets), one month’s surveillance, rent nearby flat, transport, assess security, assess risk, legitimacy, action etc.”

Some parts of the trial are being held in secret on national security grounds.

BRITAIN: ‘ Radicalisation of Muslim Youth And The Islamic State by A Writer for Dawn ‘

#AceNewsServices (Opinion) – BRITAIN – October 16 – A MAJOR issue being debated in Britain today concerns the Muslims — men and women.

It is what is termed the radicalisation of their youth.

Concerns were sparked off by the Islamic State (formerly Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham) when its militants beheaded James Foley, an American journalist covering the war in Syria, and circulated a video of the bestial act.

Even before this incident grabbed the headlines, media reports had been suggesting that authorities in London believed that as many as 500 Muslim men with British nationality had left the UK to join the IS ‘jihad’.

The last straw came when Foley’s killer was identified from his speech and accent as British. Writing for The Sunday Times, the foreign secretary summed up the widely felt sentiments:

“It is horrifying to think that the perpetrator of this heinous act could have been brought up in Britain.”

Since then the police have been empowered to seize the passports of people if need be. The move has come too late in the day and two more hostages have been murdered since and one more is under threat.

Many young Muslims draw inspiration from websites with extremist content.

One had hardly got over the shock when came another bombshell. A couple having Pakistani roots made public their dismay at their daughter’s decision to leave home to join IS jihadis.

In a statement released to the Glasgow press, they described her as a “bedroom radical” and termed her action as a betrayal of her family, her community and the people of Scotland. It would be upsetting for them as many migrate from Pakistan to give their children a better future, so bleak has life become for the youth in our own country.

Against the backdrop of these horrifying events is the fact that a number of young Muslims are drawing inspiration from websites notorious for their extremist content.

At the same time, there have been reports in Britain as also other Western countries of an increase in racism and hate crimes against Muslims in the wake of 9/11.

Publications such as Maybe we are hated: The experience and impact of anti-Muslim hate on British Muslim women by the University of Birmingham are cited in support of the claim that Muslims are being victimised for their beliefs.

LONDON: ‘ Secret Trial Over Alleged Bomb Making Hears Tony Blair’s House Was Potential Target ‘

#AceNewsServices – BRITAIN (London) – October 14 – A property belonging to Tony and Cherie Blair was named today as a potential terror target.

As the UK’s first secret terror trial opened at the Old Bailey, the jury was told that when defendant Erol Incedal, 26, was stopped by police last year, he was in possession of a piece of paper hidden in a white Versace glasses case containing the Blairs’ address.

Erol Incedal (centre), was formerly referred to as AB in the trial (PA)

Erol Incedal (centre), was formerly referred to as AB in the trial (PA)

Richard Whittam QC, prosecuting, said that although Incedal had not decided on a particular target or methodology, the address may “have some significance”.

Also found in his black Mercedes was an Acer computer, a notebook, the glasses case and a USB dongle, the court heard.

As the car was searched, a listening device was placed in the car, transcripts from which will later be heard in court. 

When Incedal was arrested the following month, a secure digital card was found “hidden” in an iPhone case contained three files relating to “Bomb Making”, it was claimed.

Mr Whittam told the jury that much of the “exceptional” case would be heard in private.

Only a small group of accredited journalists, including one from The Telegraph, will be granted access to much of the trial but will not be able to report on proceedings.

The jury has been told that some of the evidence they hear will never be made public.

Mr Whittham said Incedal was engaged in an act of terrorism either against a limited number of individuals, an “individual of significance” or a more indiscriminate attack such as the one in Mumbai in 2008.

BRITAIN: ‘ Police Arrest Three Men in Central London Under Suspicion of Islamic-Linked Terrorism ‘

#AceWorldNews – BRITAIN (London) – October 14 – British police have arrested three men in central London on suspicion of Islamist-linked “terrorism,” AFP said.

The men aged 21, 24 and 25 were arrested on Monday in an “investigation into the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.”

Last week, five other men were arrested.

Police said they had averted a “significant plot,” but two of those detained were later released.

#AceBreakingNews – LONDON – October 13 – British Prime Minister David Cameron will not take part in a parliamentary vote on whether the government should recognise Palestine as a state, his spokesman said on Monday ahead of a debate designed to raise the political profile of the issue. 

WATCH LIVE: U.K. parliament now debating motion on recognizing Palestinian state

Following a debate, members of parliament will vote on whether to support the motion calling for the recognition of a Palestinian state alongside Israel.

The spokesman said the vote, called by an opposition lawmaker, would not change Britain’s diplomatic stance.

Britain does not classify Palestine as a state, but says it could do so at any time if it believed it would help peace efforts between the Palestinians and Israel. 

Nevertheless, the vote will have symbolic value and is being closely watched by Palestinian and Israeli authorities as a barometer for European readiness to act on Palestinian hopes for unilateral recognition by UN member states. 





#AceWorldNews – BRITAIN – October 13 – Thousands of health workers in Britain are expected to strike on Monday to protest against a pay freeze.

A four hour walk-out will be followed by four days of industrial action short of strikes.

This is the first walk out over pay in the state-run National Health Service (NHS) for over 30 years, Reuters said.

The government has rejected trade union calls for a 1 percent pay rise for some nurses, midwives, ambulance and support staff in hospitals in England and Northern Ireland.

Guardian reported today that Health secretary Jeremy Hunt defends the offer to NHS staff on Monday as thousands of health workers stage their first strike over pay in more than 30 years.

Hunt says while everyone is getting a 1% pay rise, the government cannot afford to offer an additional 1% to the 55% of NHS staff whose pay automatically rises by 3%.

He warns that accepting the full pay award would lead to 14,000 nurses losing their jobs over the next couple of years

BRITAIN: ‘ UK Based Members of Anonymous Launch Operation Safe Winter ‘

#AceNewsServices – BRITAIN – October 11 – UK-based members of Anonymous launched Operation Safe Winter in Britain on Friday.


The project is aimed at providing the homeless with life’s essentials, while raising awareness of the punishing effects of austerity and the UK’s housing crisis.

Launched to coincide with World Homeless Day, the initiative is a global outreach program. In an international effort to battle against homelessness, Anonymous branches around the world will work alongside social justice campaigns.



Officially founded in November of last year, the program evolved organically out of an array of charitable projects. In 2013, OpSafeWinter provided homeless support in 12 different countries. It was particularly active in Britain, America, and Brazil.

Britain’s East Coast Homeless Outreach (ECHO) project, currently up for a special award from the Lloyds Bank Foundation, originated from Anonymous UK’s efforts to support homeless Britons in 2013.

UKIP’s success is likely to split the centre-right vote in a national election in May next year, making it difficult for the two dominant parties in the UK to secure a majority in a 650 seats parliament.
