While you were sleeping..Government buildings across Westminster are now governed by Sharia law

While you were sleeping..Government buildings across Westminster are now governed by Sharia law

I hold my hands up, I missed this March 2016 article by The Daily Mail.  The article is still up on Mail On Line so I presume the article is genuine.

A historic building that used to house members of the Royal Family and Sea Lords is now governed by Sharia law, MailOnline can reveal.

Admiralty House is one of two more public buildings that are revealed today to operate under Islamic law following the revelations that government properties were quietly transferred to finance an Islamic bond scheme in 2014.

In addition to two Department of Health buildings and the Department of International Development property on Whitehall, the bond scheme also covers Admiralty House and an unidentified building at 4-26 Webber Street in Southwark, south London. 

It takes the total number of government buildings that were transferred to fund the £200million Islamic finance scheme to five.

‘Must-have’ weapons on sale at London Arms Fair

‘Must-have’ weapons on sale at London Arms Fair

London hosts the world’s biggest arms fair next week, giving global weapons manufacturers a chance to exhibit their newest and deadliest wears. RT has compiled the essential wish list for any buyer.

Military technology advances at a rapid rate and this year’s Defence Security and Equipment International (DSEI) exhibition in London’s EXCEL Centre promises a finger-twitching array of new wears.

The international exhibition has established itself as the leading platform to view and purchase state-of-the-art equipment from the world’s defense and security industry.

Highlights on show include Israel’s latest ‘suicide’ drone, bullets which are able to steer themselves to a moving target, and a silent laser capable taking down an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) mid-flight.

Arms manufacturers do not publicize the price of their weapons, presumably because they cut deals with clients depending on how much they buy. As such it is not possible to list the going rate for each of these deadly gadgets.

London is now the global money-laundering centre for the drug trade, says crime expert

London is now the global money-laundering centre for the drug trade, says crime expert

The City of London is the money-laundering centre of the world’s drug trade, according to an internationally acclaimed crime expert.

UK banks and financial services have ignored so-called “know your customer” rules designed to curb criminals’ abilities to launder the proceeds of crime, Roberto Saviano warned. Mr Saviano, author of the international bestseller Gomorrah, which exposed the workings of the Neapolitan crime organisation Camorra, said: “The British treat it as not their problem because there aren’t corpses on the street.”

His warning follows a National Crime Agency (NCA) threat assessment which stated: “We assess that hundreds of billions of US dollars of criminal money almost certainly continue to be laundered through UK banks, including their subsidiaries, each year.”

Last month, the NCA warned that despite the UK’s role in developing international standards to tackle money laundering, the continued extent of it amounts to a “strategic threat to the UK’s economy and reputation”. It added that the same money-laundering networks used by organised crime were being used by terrorists as well.
