Welcome to The New World Order – Creation of European Army backed by 36% of Brits

Welcome to The New World Order – Creation of European Army backed by 36% of Brits

Millions of British people would support a standing European Union (EU) military force, according to a study by polling firm YouGov.

Carried out on behalf of Cambridge University, the findings indicate 36 percent of people in the UK would support a pan-European military force, a conclusion which jars with widely-held perceptions of British Euroskepticism.

A further 36 percent did not know how they felt or had no strong leanings, while 29 percent said they were strongly opposed.

Unsurprisingly, UK Independence Party (UKIP) voters were the most opposed, with 51 percent against the idea, while 47 percent of Labour voters and 46 percent of Liberal Democrat voters backed the idea.

Conservative voters were 31 percent for and 36 percent against the idea of a combined European force.

A solid 60 percent majority felt the UK should work closely with European nations on broader issues of foreign policy in the wake of the Paris attacks.

Taking LSD for breakfast ‘can cure anxiety and insomnia

Taking LSD for breakfast ‘can cure anxiety and insomnia

It’s breakfast time. Would you rather A) have a cup of tea, or B) take the powerful hallucinogen which inspired most of the freakiest music of the Sixties?

If you answered B) you’re in good company.

A growing movement of people are ‘microdosing’ LSD in the morning – taking 10-15 micrograms, instead of the larger doses used for drug trips – and claim that it can cure anxiety and insomnia.

Psychedelics researcher Dr James Fadiman – who worked with LSD until it was banned until 1966 – said, ‘People do it and they’re eating better, sleeping better, they’re often returning to exercise or yoga or meditation. It’s as if messages are passing through their body more easily.

Fadiman told Vice, ‘This is total guesswork, but so many different conditions that I’ve seen are improved, it looks like it rebalances those pistons which are not in balance.

‘This may be in your central nervous system, it may be the brain stem, it may be that it’s improving function of mitochondria. One woman who had painful, crampy periods started microdosing and when her period came, she had no problems.’

Eight men quizzed by police probing claims of abuse at care home after calls for investigation by Lemn Sissay

Eight men quizzed by police probing claims of abuse at care home after calls for investigation by Lemn Sissay

Eight men have been questioned by police investigating claims of abuse at a children’s care home attended by the poet Lemn Sissay.

The men spoken to by detectives are all believed to have worked as carers at the Wood End Assessment Centre in Atherton, near Wigan, between the 1970s and 1990s.

They were not arrested but interviewed under caution over claims of abuse made by former residents. Most of the complaints are of physical assaults but there are also some claims of sexual abuse.

Detectives have now passed a file to the Crown Prosecution Service for prosecutors to decide if any charges should be brought relating to the investigation.

Mr Sissay, 48, who was elected Chancellor of the University of Manchester earlier this year, was a teenager in the care system when he spent nearly a year at Wood End in 1984.

He has publicly denounced the regime and conditions at the centre and led calls for an investigation via articles on his blog and social media accounts.

Ten years ago he made a BBC TV documentary in which he discussed his experience at Wood End and he has written extensively about his time at the centre.

Child sex abuse inquiry to focus on churches and politicians

Child sex abuse inquiry to focus on churches and politicians

The independent inquiry into child sexual abuse in England and Wales will investigate allegations against politicians living and dead, and a variety of public institutions, in the first of 12 hearings into alleged abuse and cover-ups, the chair has said.

Judge Lowell Goddard revealed details of the first investigations to be carried out in public into child sexual abuse dating back decades. They cover institutions such as the Church of England, the Roman Catholic church, Westminster, children’s homes in Nottinghamshire and the London borough of Lambeth, child abuse on the internet, as well as grooming and sexual exploitation in Rochdale, Devon, Cornwall, Oxford and Rotherham.

The scale of the first 12 investigations to be announced – which will be followed by up to 13 more – was ambitious, Goddard admitted.

“To run 12 investigations in parallel represents an organisational challenge that is unprecedented in a public inquiry in the United Kingdom,” she said.

“We are determined to succeed and expect full co-operation of all institutions and individuals who can assist us in our work.”

While some of the investigations may take 18 months, others could last many years, but Goddard said she hoped to keep to her timetable of the inquiry lasting five years.

Goddard’s £17.9m investigation – the biggest public inquiry into institutional child abuse and accusations of establishment cover-ups ever held in England and Wales – will not be able to convict people or punish them. She has said, however, that she will not shrink from naming individuals who have abused children and the institutions which allowed it to happen.
