#Brittius says the news of Farage at Trump Tower NYC, is certainly, Jolly Good!

As the two, Trump and farage, are friends, obviously, #BREXIT, and Favored Trade status, as we discussed, undoubtedly will be the topics. It will be economically good for both nations.

Of the discussions they will have, I do hope that reestablishing a TransAtlantic trade and shipping will be at the forefront. Filling ports with merchant vessels would stimulate both nations with trade, and all of the associated jobs, once again. It also gives the “raspberries”, to the EU, who desired to wreck Britain’s economy, for spiteful reasons.

There will be other meeting leading up to Inauguration Day (January 20, 2017), and after that date as well. So much for Obama admonishing Britain will wait at the back of the queue. Britain, is in NYC, having dinner, with the president-elect

BRITAIN: ‘ UKIP Secures First Seat In Parliament ‘

#AceWorldNews – BRITAIN – October 10 – UK Independence Party, the nation’s emerging anti-EU party has secured its first seat in parliament, with Douglas Carswell taking the seat of Clacton by securing 59.75 percent of the vote.

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.

More reasons why Scotland can’t test the water with UKIP

I have done a blog already on the real dangers of a Scotland being run by UKIP. This is a real and present danger to Scotland. The above and below images prove that if UKIP do win an Election with Scotland part of the Union that they would dissolve our Parliament as promised and treat us like Thatcher did. Our two options are David Cameron and the Tories or Nigel and UKIP! We as a nation must vote yes on September 18th otherwise we run the risk of being a funny comedy for UKIP

We can’t chance this people, vote with your mind, vote with logic, vote with the truth not lies from #NAW camps


Scotland has spoken already

I already said I think the dangers of UKIP will help an #AYE vote and I think I have show here again, this can only help us on September 18th, here is the blog I done and an Image below from Twitter saying exactly what UKIP think of Scotland. We can’t go near this, vote for our future, vote with your head not your heart

Radical Islam ‘Trojan Horse plot’ threatens the UK and the West


I don’t think Islam is capable of this due it’s radical nature

Islam as a religion is a good religion, I have Muslim friends, life friends through work (In my 20’s) and football. They are friends for life, and they are Muslim. I have Catholic, Protestants, Hinduism and friends from many religions, having never left the Island I live on, the UK, up here in Scotland, the World is a huge place and I love knowing people with different customs and ways

Learning to respect each other is essential. It was in the media this morning that since the 1990’s RADICAL ISLAM has been infiltrating schools. Below is the story and the letters to go with it. This is just breaking today and will turn into a REAL story soon. I think this with the UKIP surge in the UK has made many people turn away from the two party we have had since WWII and I do believe this, UKIP and the Radical Islam threat will make sure on September 18th Scotland (Where I am) will vote to leave the Union. All the people in Scotland get to vote a simple Yes or No. With this and UPIK many in the last week have turned from no voters to yes voters. Nobody is Scotland want’s one more Torie Government (Thatcherism) We want a Government we vote for and to be a free nation and a rich nation. The thought of UKIP and the Radical Islam issue scares me for my kids future, and I know many are now saying the same. UKIP want all foreign nationals out of the UK, Radicals for sure but not Radicals also. They are not far away from the principles of the British National Party who are hates my the vast majority for being racists. This is a story the people of the USA can share as it is well known Obama has surrounded himself with known Muslim Brotherhood Members http://shaunynews.com/2014/05/08/obama-and-the-muslim-connection-disturbing-photo-of-obama-depicted-as-a-king/ So here we are with the USA and UK being infiltrated by Radical Islam, or am I reading the story wrong? This is all over our Media today http://news.sky.com/story/1274139/muslim-school-plot-fears-were-raised-in-1994


Obama’s Muslim Brotherhood Friends. Go research, you will see rather quickly

Fears that hardline Muslim governors have been infiltrating Birmingham schools go back at least two decades, and were raised with the government in 1994. Sky News has learned that senior leaders at three schools in Birmingham were so concerned about the influence of Muslim extremists in the 1990s they took their fears to the top. In a letter to education ministers, copied to then Prime Minister John Major, the heads said extremist group Hizb ut-Tahrir was gaining an alarming influence over schools in the city. Former chair of governors at Golden Hillock School, John Ray, met with then education minister Emily Blatch in Westminster. He says that had the government acted then, the current trend – in which conservative Muslims have been able to dominate school leadership – could have been averted. “(The Trojan Horse plot) reveals something, something that is true,” said Mr Ray. “It reveals a mess that the city council has not been able to check – the development of this whole infiltration of this ceding in of governors of one particular ideology. They are not people who have the welfare of these children at heart.”


A letter sent to government ministers in 1994


An official house of Commons return letter (I am told)


The story broke this morning, but we all seen it coming or knew it was an issue, now our Media is reporting it

This for me is a very real and active threat to the Western World, Radical Islam has forced it’s way into power in the USA and is slowly creeping into English politics and life style’s. Many parts of England have areas where it is like “Little Pakistan” where the majority are Muslim. This poster appeared last week, I never blogged about it at the time, but I kept it knowing this was on the cards, here it is


This is what is happening in England

This has caused English people, off their own backs to create the “English Defence League” E.D.L and counter any demonstrations done by Muslims. When I see Muslims with banners saying “Behead anyone against Islam” It does make me PRAY for a free Scotland. We don’t have Radical Islam issues up here in Scotland, many think the UK is one country, it is not it is a Union and a Union we in Scotland want to leave for many reasons.

When I seen the UKIP surge here where I blogged ithttps://acenewsservices.com/2014/05/27/dangerous-uk-ukip-surge-might-make-an-independent-scotland-a-reality/ this was my views at the time. France did similar they voted in far right politicians in the European Elections. I think the people of England mainly spoke loud and clear about the Islamic Muslim threat with the voting, had this been a general election UKIP would be running the UK and they would dissolve the Scottish and Welsh parliaments

For me personally I can’t risk this for my Country, Scotland is a peaceful place and we are a welcoming people. English people are the same, they are not the issue, Westminster is. And the news today this Islamic threat has been ongoing in Schools in England since the 1990’s is proof if anyone needs it that the future of not just the UK but Europe as a whole could be seen to be unstable. We get real elections here where the people most hate can get into power, many countries like the USA have known rigged elections, George Bush got 2 terms, and we all know he cheated to beat Al Gore and Florida was the decider, and in charge that day in Florida was none other than Jeb Bush and the votes counted by people who were part of Bush’s campaign. Of course we all know this as fact now

So the danger is real, it is a Western problem and we need to meet it head on. I am not Racist, I aim to offend nobody in any article I do, be it here, Ace News or Browaha or any other place I may blog/write in the future. I just tell the story the way I see it. I am the type of person who will question life and look for the lies we are told by Government. Why this has went on so long is a mystery to me. Radical Islam is real problem for the West and I will leave some newspaper headlines from the UK today below as well as other Radical Muslim pictures from England

The English defence league have made their feelings known

Dangerous UK UKIP Surge might make an Independent Scotland a reality

Been debating and thinking about the surge of UKIP votes. Now UKIP have said they WILL dissolve the Scottish and Welsh Parliaments. I think this surge of UKIP wins has made an Independent Scotland a reality. If the polls are right and UKIP would have caused a hung parliament had this been a general election in the UK I know for SURE no Scottish person would want this. So is there a way of thinking that UKIP could have just made the undecided, decide on yes?

This is the last time this right wing nut job was in my city Edinburgh

Now I am a #AYE campaigner and write for #AYE but we don’t do it with hate. The venom from the people in my city to this man is there for all to see and I believe my whole country will say no to Nigel. I think Nigel has JUST made a sure thing of the yes vote. We MUST as Scottish people look and research UKIP and it’s polices. If we do this and realise they are gaining support in England, we run the risk of this idiot running Scotland! This can’t happen, THIS CAN’T HAPPEN!


WE CAN’T HAVE THIS IS EVEN A MAYBE!


This was him in a pub in Edinburgh, Scotland


Salmond even warned us, but he played a BLINDER over UKIP and it’s racist, homophobic scum


WAKE UP SCOTLAND!

Why UKIP proves a free Scotland can happen

UKIP have these two past weeks shown the people of the UK want something new, something different. I know many through my media who have came away from Labour and SNP (Scottish National Party) here in Scotland to vote UKIP
I think this clearly shows people with a brain in their heads who understand what politics are all about have voted with a historical tick for UKIP. I am now asking the question, has this, or will vote from UKIP make the undecided in Scotland now sway away from no to yes.
Whatever the vote will be will be. We go yes, we go into the unknown in Scotland. I know people voting no for stupid reasons and people voting yes for the wrong reasons. Every year Scotland hands Westminster around £9 Billion pound and are given £5 Billion back to run the country. Westminster looks upon Scotland as a test ground, a guinea pig almost
Thatcherism is alive and well in the UK, we see it with Austerity cuts and how it has made people commit suicide and almost starve to death, the food banks in Scotland and all over the UK have grown 10 fold since the Tories took charge. What does this tell us?
I think it’s time to change, UKIP voters took a chance on that vote, if this was a national election week, UKIP would be running the UK. UKIP have thrown their hat into the Yes Scotland campaign and I believe Labour will also. There can be no one party in a free democratic Scotland, so others are and will throw their hats into the Yes Scotland campaign
Educating one’s self on why a free Scotland isn’t just good for Scotland but also England can be a hard sell but look at the maths behind it all and it becomes clear it would help everyone
Now is the time, today is the day, this is our time, our change
As the World hates and fights over the Nuclear option us here in Scotland are voting without anger, and we are voting to step away from the Nuclear option. We are showing a watching World that we are a race of people educated on why and willing to change without bad words or hate
We must do this
We must vote yes
UKIP has show change can and does happen

Local Elections: UKIP Makes Significant Gains

Nigel Farage has claimed his party will win double the number of seats predicted as UKIP makes significant gains across the country. Early on Friday morning UKIP had already surpassed the 80 seats it had been expected to take, dealing a significant blow to the main parties. UKIP took seats of both Labour and the Conservatives in their heartlands, which was particularly damaging to Ed Miliband, who has been accused by his own party of running a “unforgiveably unprofessional” campaign.

Labour lost its grip in the north and, in a serious blow, the party lost control of Thurrock, a key marginal for the General Election in 2015, to no overall control, losing two seats to UKIP. Douglas Alexander, Labour’s election co-ordinator, was forced to deny fighting a “lacklustre” campaign. He told Media the only way to tackle the march of UKIP was by deploying an “army of activists” on the doorsteps and said that Labour had knocked on seven million doors.

Mr Alexander said there was a “deep antipathy to how politics has been done” and UKIP had scooped up that vote but that “strengthening and growing the ground operation” was the only strategy for 2015. UKIP made its greatest gains in Essex, where Margaret Thatcher once identified the “Essex Man”, a man who moved out of London, once voted Labour but switched to the Tories. UKIP took seats from Labour in Hartlepool, won 10 seats in Rotherham and polled more than a third of the vote in wards in big cities, such as Sunderland, Birmingham and Hull, where it previously had little or no presence.

On Friday morning Mr Farage said he was “very pleased” with the result, which showed UKIP was now a “serious player” and said the party was now expecting to win double the 80 seats that had been predicted. He said: “The idea the UKIP vote just hurts the Tories is going to be blown away by this election” and added: “The UKIP fox is in the Westminster henhouse.” However, he admitted that the party was unlikely to be successful in London.

According to the latest Media projection, the results so far would give a hung parliament at the 2015 General Election. Media election analyst Professor Michael Thrasher said on the basis of the early results, UKIP looks likely to make significant gains in next year’s poll. Prof Thrasher said UKIP’s success suggests the party would claim at least one seat in the House of Commons in 2015.

Conservative Education Secretary Michael Gove said the results had not been as bad as expected. He categorically ruled out any chance of a pact with UKIP. Most councils will not declare their results until later on Friday. The Liberal Democrats suffered significant loses, particularly in Portsmouth where it lost control with UKIP gaining six seats. However, it managed to hold on in Eastleigh, where UKIP had been expected to make gains, which was a significant victory for the party. Business Secretary Vince Cable admitted it would be a bad night, adding: “We take a kicking for the things that government does that are unpopular.” He argued supporters would be “pleasantly surprised” in areas where the party is organised. Brentwood – constituency of the Tory secretary of state for local government, Eric Pickles – has slipped from the Conservatives to no overall control.

UK: ” Storms and Floods are `Wrath of God’ Due to `Gay Marriage’ says `UKIP’ Councillor”

#AceNewsServices says UKIP Councillor blames gay marriage for Britain’s ‘storms and floods’

The wrath of God has been unleashed on Britain after the government’s decision to legalize gay marriage, claimed a UK Independence Party member in an open letter published by an Oxfordshire newspaper.

UKIP Councillor from Oxfordshire, David Silvester sent a commentary to the Henley Standard, in which he blamed the recent heavy floods across Britain on the government and particularly the Prime Minister who has acted “arrogantly against the Gospel.” 

Since the UK legalized gay marriage last year, the nation has been “beset by serious storms and floods,”the councillor wrote, adding that it is Cameron’s fault that the nation is distressed by bad weather. 

Quoting the Bible, the politician went on to say that “no man or men, however powerful, can mess with Almighty God with impunity and get away with it” and that “a Christian nation that abandons its faith and acts contrary to the Gospel will be beset by natural disasters.” 

In the publication, Silvester – who left the Conservative party in protest over the issue – states that he warned the Prime Minister that “disasters would accompany the passage of his same-sex marriage bill.” 

“Now, even as Cameron sheds crocodile tears on behalf of destitute flooded homeowners, playing at advocate against the very local councils he has made cash-strapped, it is his fault that large swathes of the nation have been afflicted by storms and floods.”

In fact it’s so unbelievable that here’s the meat of it too! pic.twitter.com/7nKleh6HYA

— Tamsin Borlase (@Bosleypatch) January 17, 2014

A UKIP spokeswoman said Silvester’s views were “not the party’s belief” but said that any person in the UK was entitled to state his or her personal opinions. 

“That is what makes the United Kingdom such a wonderful, proud, diverse and free country,” UKIP replied to Huffington Post.

A Conservative District Councillor for Henley-on-Thames told Huffington Post that his colleague’s comments resembled Stone Age opinion.

“Playing ‘spot the wrath’ with pages of the Henley Standard is absurd,” William Hall said. “Many people around here appreciate a sound stance on cutting taxes and getting out of the EU but once you scratch the surface UKIP is a party that would take us back to the Stone Age.” 

Legislation to allow same-sex marriage in England and Wales was passed in parliament in July 2013 and is expected to be brought into force on 29 March 2014.

#UKGov: “Using Immigration as a Scapegoat to Cover up Austerity Failures”

#AceNewsServices says having watched UK TV news yesterday evening and being told that people working for the “Immigration Services” will get “Gift Vouchers” that according to the Guardian [Incentives for officials who hit target of winning 70% of tribunal cases include vouchers, cash bonuses and extra holiday’s]  so this column according to John Wright in my opinions column of the local UK news.,just seemed the right one to print.

The poisonous climate which currently prevails in Britain on the issue of immigration reflects the extent to which the British government’s extreme austerity agenda has been responsible for a lurch to the right in British politics.

This has been most pronounced within the government itself as, under pressure from the upsurge in support for the anti-immigration politics of the far right UK Independence Party, it has embraced this until now marginal political party’s anti-EU and anti-immigration narrative.

Up to the last UK general election in 2010, which brought into existence the current Tory and Lib Dem coalition government, UKIP and its noxious brand of xenophobic and anti-immigrant views were considered beyond the pale by the political mainstream and the majority of people.

Three years later a recent poll of marginal Conservative parliamentary constituencies found that UKIP’s support had gone up by 8 percent since the last general election, while support for the Tories has plunged by around 10 percent. With the next general election now only 18 months away, the conclusion is clear – natural Tory voters have turned to UKIP in significant numbers, attracted by their more robust views on the EU and immigration – both widely though wrongly perceived to constitute a threat to the British economy, jobs, and a drain on the welfare state.

Such anti-immigration sentiment has grown in popularity and traction since 2010, which has been created by the government’s dogged determination to implement austerity, regardless of the damage it has done and is doing both to the economy and social cohesion in the wake of a relentless assault on public spending, wages, and the welfare state. It has given rise to fear, anger, and alienation among a large section of the population, making people more receptive to the scapegoating of immigrants as a consequence.

Most recently, the rhetoric from the government over the prospect of hordes of Rumanian and Bulgarian migrants invading the country after temporary work restrictions were lifted on January 1 in accordance with EU legislation – an invasion which is yet to materialize – is a case in point. Citizens of both nations have been slandered and smeared in a manner that can only be described as racist, with them characterized as criminals, thieves, and benefit scroungers. For any politician to descend to this level is a disgrace. For government ministers to do so is worse. It even produced a schism within the cabinet, when the Lib Dem Business Secretary Vince Cable recently compared Prime Minister David Cameron to Enoch Powell, the notorious Tory MP of the 1960s whose infamous speech against the flow of migrants to the UK has gone down in British political history as a racist manifesto.

The truth when it comes to immigration is that it has benefited Britain. A recent study by academics from University College London’s Migration Research Unit revealed that over the past decade migrants have made a net contribution of £25 billion to the economy, with migrants from the EU making the largest contribution of all; according to the study they have paid on average 34 percent more in taxes than they received in benefits between 2001 and 2011.

One of the co-authors of the report was Professor Christian Dustmann. On its findings, he told The Guardian: “Our research shows that in contrast with most other European countries, the UK attracts highly educated and skilled immigrants from within the EEA as well as from outside. What’s more, immigrants who arrived since 2000 have made a very sizeable net fiscal contribution and therefore helped to reduce the fiscal burden on UK-born workers.”

He continued: “Our study also suggests that over the last decade or so the UK has benefitted fiscally from immigrants from EEA countries, who have put in considerably more in taxes and contributions than they received in benefits and transfers. Given this evidence, claims about ‘benefit tourism’ by EEA immigrants seem to be disconnected from reality.”

The idea of implementing a 5-year ban on migrants being able to claim benefits contains its own logic in the context of austerity, wherein a crisis of greed and recklessness in the private sector has been turned into a crisis of public spending. Immigration offers an easy scapegoat for the pain being felt by millions as a result of the extreme cuts being made to public spending, with the poor and low waged bearing most of the burden. However it sets a dangerous precedent, given that around 1.6 million British people are currently living and working throughout the EU. In other words, the scapegoating of migrants in Britain could result in the scapegoating of British expatriates overseas.

(AFP Photo / Carl Court)

But by far the most worrying aspect of the poisonous turn which the debate on immigration has taken in Britain recently, is that it illustrates the extent to which mainstream politicians have failed to learn the lessons of history. During the last great global depression in the 1930s, the scapegoating of foreigners, and national, ethnic and religious minorities led inexorably to the rise of fascism and everything that followed. While we may be some way from that particular abyss today, the fact that the normalization of anti-immigrant sentiment in Britain has reached the point where it has been embraced by the government itself has to be a matter of deep and growing concern.

At the beginning of 2014 Britain is one of the most unequal societies in the developed world, with one in three children living in poverty, millions suffering fuel poverty, and the number of food banks multiplying up and down the country in response to growing demand. This state of affairs is not the fault of immigrants or immigration. This state of affairs is the fault of the rampant greed that has blighted British society over the past three decades.

The enemy of people in Britain is neither immigrants or immigration. It is the rich and a government that governs on their behalf.
