    ‘Brexit is based on lies’: Elderly woman with walking stick unmasked as anti-Brexit vandal

    A 71-year-old widow was revealed as the perpetrator of anti-Brexit vandalism across her local area

    Hazel Jones, a former teacher, was filmed by Carla Petts writing the anti-Brexit slogans
    Nick Duffy9 hoursSaturday August 10th 2019


    A 71-year-old retired teacher has admitted responsibility for writing hundreds of anti-Brexit messages on walls across Wakefield, West Yorkshire.

    Hazel Jones was unmasked after being filmed writing the message “Brexit is based on lies. Reject it.” on a wall outside a local grammar school on 2 August.

    In an interview with The Times, Ms Jones admitted that she had been leaving the messages across the town since the 2016 Brexit referendum.

    Imminent Brexit catastrophe

    She said: “We all have to do our bit and I think it’s very important that people are made aware of the imminent catastrophe that we will be faced with if Brexit goes through.

    “My generation has fouled up the prospects of younger people, so it’s my grandchildren that I’m doing it for.”

    Ms Jones, who is a widow, says she usually tends “to get up early and write when I’m on my way into town or going to the shops.”

    She added: “Had I known I was being filmed I would have dressed up a bit more.”

    The retired teacher says she will likely end her vandalism spree after being caught on camera, adding: “I suppose the game is up now, I can’t keep on doing it any more.”

    Ms Jones said the messages were written in chalk that washed off in the rain, adding: “It really never occurred to me that it was an offence.”

    Lib Dem voter

    Ms Jones says she was a lifelong Labour voter, but now supports the Liberal Democrats because of their promise of a second Brexit referendum.

    The video was filmed by Wakefield local Carla Petts, who explained that she had seen the messages before but “thought it must be some youths writing it.”

    Facebook users largely praised the “feisty” Ms Jones, with one writing: “I like her style ask her if she fancies going taggin next week I know a few walls.”

    Danny Dyer calls Boris Johnson ‘a f***ing alien’ as he gives his verdict on new prime minister Boris Johnson was branded a ‘f***ing alien’ by Danny Dyer in a blunt discussion on the new PM

    Danny Dyer has never been one to mince his words when it comes to our politicians, and has now branded Prime Minister Boris Johnson a ‘f***ing alien’. In tonight’s episode of The Lateish Show with Mo Gilligan, Danny lets rip at our new PM during a chat about Brexit and the new Parliament. ‘What is the world coming to when you think about it?’ Danny told audiences, according to The Sun. ‘I’ve got my own game show, I’m a host, Boris Johnson is the f**king Prime Minster… ‘ …I mean that’s a f**king alien, I am telling you that.’ The hardnut’s comment comes a year after he branded former PM David Cameron a t**t for quitting his role after the Brexit referendum. Arguing that noone truly knows what Brexit is or means, he labelled the entire referendum ‘comedy’ and blamed Cameron for making a quick exit. Questioning why he can ‘scuttle off’ after the referendum went through, Danny said: ‘Where is he? In Europe, in Nice, with his trotters up. ‘Where is the geezer? He should be held account for it.’
    On tonight’s Lateish Show, Danny will be joined by Maya Jama, Joe Lycett and Kelis. The Lateish Show With Mo Gilligan airs tonight at 10pm on Channel 4.

    No Deal Brexit doomsday dossier is 'Project Fear scaremongering' say ministers after documents predict fuel, food and medicine shortages and Irish border chaos on Oct 31

    By Ross Ibbetson and Joe Middleton For Mailonline02:19, 18 Aug 2019, updated 15:08, 18 Aug 2019




    Business and energy minister Kwasi Kwarteng has dismissed concerns over potential fuel, food and medicine shortages in the event of a no deal Brexit as 'scaremongering'.
    ADVERTISEMENT

    It comes after a secret dossier filed by the Cabinet Office, called Operation Yellowhammer, exposed the areas that could be most vulnerable if the UK leaves the EU without a deal on October 31.
    The explosive revelations marked 'official-sensitive' include the expectation of a return of a hard border in Ireland due to the inability to roll-out the government's proposed limited checks, and shortages of fuel, medicine and food.
    Appearing on Ridge on Sunday today, energy minister Kwasi Kwarteng said the government will be 'fully prepared to leave without a deal on October 31.'
    He said: 'I think there is a lot of scaremongering around, and a lot of people are playing into project fear and all the rest of it.
    'We've got to prepare for no deal, in fact the previous Prime Minister created DExEU (Department for Exiting the European Union) and said the mandate of DExEU last summer was to prepare for no deal, that's what we were focused on.
    'Now we have a new Prime Minister focused on that and the scale and intensity of those preparations are increasing and we will be fully prepared to leave without a deal on October 31.'
    A Downing Street source has claimed the papers had been leaked by a former minister.
    The papers, obtained by The Times, outline the possibility of protests, road blockades and 'direct action.'
    Former Tory former cabinet ministers Iain Duncan Smith and Owen Paterson claimed the leak of documents on 'Operation Yellowhammer' was an example of the 'establishment' plot to 'sow fear in people's minds'.

    Boris Johnson is preparing to meet with French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel this week at the G7 Summit in Biarritz, but Downing Street continues to downplay hopes of an eleventh hour deal with the EU (pictured: the PM during a meeting at No 10 last week)
    +10




    The leaked Operation Yellowhammer dossier says that preventing a return of a hard border in Northern Ireland could prove 'unsustainable' (pictured: the border at Ballyconnel, Ireland)


    In a joint statement, they said: 'This Operation Yellowhammer leak is the version of what the contingency executive put together. We remember attending a briefing on privy council terms which they said was not worst case but reasonable worst case. Theresa May had asked for this to be done. It was obviously Project Fear dressed up.
    'For example, on the delays at the port we asked if they had discussed their expectation with the port authorities of Calais/Pas du Nord who had already said that there would be no extra delays at Calais and they said, (after a great deal of shuffling of feet) 'no'.



    'We asked why not and they said they had not been asked to do so. There were other areas where it was clear they had not been asked to get balance but instead dress up previous versions of other worst-case scenarios.
    'The whole thing was an attempt to frighten us and didn't stand up to scrutiny. We have never seen officials look so uneasy under questioning.
    'The fact that this document was 'found' in a Westminster pub tells you all you need to know about this continuing establishment plot to sow fear in people's minds. This is an abuse of the proper use of the Civil Service and must be stopped.'
    And ardent Brexiteer Nigel Farage described said the report was 'so extreme in terms of its scaremongering it's not believable, at all.'
    He said: 'What do I make of all this, I don't think this is really a government document at all, I think it's a civil service document, I call it an Olly Robbins special.'

    Energy minister Kwasi Kwarteng, pictured in Westminster last week, dismissed concerns of a no deal Brexit The leaked document suggests massive tailbacks at ports could limit fuel distribution and disrupt the supply across the southeast of England, including London.
    As many as 85% of lorries headed to France could be hit with delays of 60 hours and it could take up to three months before the flow of traffic reaches 75% of current levels.


    Government cannot close down Parliament to allow no-deal Brexit, claims campaigner

    Anti-Brexit campaigner Gina Miller has claimed the Government 'unequivocally' accepts that it cannot close down Parliament to allow a no-deal Brexit.
    The businesswoman, who last month wrote to Boris Johnson arguing any move to prorogue Parliament 'would be an abuse of his powers' and would result in legal action, said she had been reassured Parliament would not be suspended.
    Ms Miller previously went to court and won the right for Parliament to give its consent ahead of the Government triggering Article 50 to begin the Brexit process.
    She told Sky's Sophy Ridge On Sunday: 'What they have said is unequivocally they accept that to close down Parliament to bypass them in terms of Brexit - stopping a no-deal Brexit in particular - is illegal.
    'So without having to go to court they've conceded we've basically called their bluff.'
    But Ms Miller said that whilst the Government had given a reassurance that Parliament will not be prorogued, she said she would be seeking further reassurance that MPs would be able to pass legislation to stop a no-deal Brexit.
    She said: 'At the moment Parliament has to find a way - instruments and ways - of ensuring that they can pass that legislation, scrutinising which is what the Government letter has confirmed, that Parliament will be able to scrutinise and examine all options when it comes to exiting, it's not the same as giving them the ability to pass legislation.
    'And because we already have in legislation that October 31 is our exit they need to pass other legislation to prevent no-deal or to change that date after an extension.'











    Fresh food supply will plummet, leading to increased prices and less variety, while fishing vessels could clash, as nearly 300 foreign ships are anticipated to cast their nets illegally in British waters on the first day of Brexit.
    The document says that the supply of fresh food will 'decrease' and supermarket shelves could well have gaps, with shoppers unable to buy some things.
    The Prime Minister joked in the leadership contest there would still be clean drinking water in the event of Britain crashing out on no deal
    But the document says the biggest risk to the food industry will be a dearth in chemicals used to treat water.
    The chances of this happening are 'low', but if it does occur could impact hundreds of thousands of people.
    Medical supplies will also be 'vulnerable to severe extended delays,' The Times reports, because three-quarters of British supplies come from the EU.
    A senior Whitehall source told the paper: 'This is not Project Fear - this is the mnost realistic assessment of what the public face with no deal. These are likely, basic, reasonable scenarios - not the worst case.'
    Meanwhile, civil servants have warned that massive protests throughout the country will stretch police.
    Financial services could also be 'disrupted', which could have significant consequences for the economy given the industry contributed £132 billion last year.
    The city faces two main obstacles, firstly fluctuations in the price of sterling and also the leaving date which is on a Thursday.
    This means banks and financial services will have to switch to a new system for reporting transactions mid-week. But the sector is understood to be one of the more prepared for a no deal.
    The news comes as Boris Johnson signalled he would plough ahead with Brexit before calling a general election, even if a no confidence vote succeeded when parliament returns in September.



    +10



    Perishable goods, including medicines and food, will be affected by lorry delays, Operation Yellowhammer reveals (pictured: Empty shelves at a supermarket)
    Leaked details of Operation Yellowhammer, which first became known of last September, illustrates mounting discontent in Whitehall over the government's lack of clarity on its Brexit plans.

    Mr Johnson will this week tell French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel that Westminster cannot stop Brexit and a new deal must be agreed if Britain is to avoid leaving the EU without one.
    But Downing Street doesn't believe an eleventh hour compromise is possible, saying that No Deal remains 'highly likely.'

    Barred from America: New UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson's girlfriend Carrie Symonds, 31, is refused US visitors' visa 'over 2018 trip to Somaliland'

    By Simon Walters for the Daily Mail22:02, 20 Aug 2019, updated 22:44, 20 Aug 2019


    Boris Johnson faced embarrassment last night after his girlfriend was barred from visiting the United States.
    ADVERTISEMENT

    Carrie Symonds, 31, applied for a visa to go to America in the next few days as part of her job with a US-based environmental group, but the American authorities have blocked the request.
    It is believed the decision stems from a five-day visit made last year by Miss Symonds to East Africa, a region riven by civil war.

    Carrie Symonds (centre, on the trip), 31, applied for a visa to go to America in the next few days as part of her job with a US-based environmental group, but the American authorities have blocked the request. This picture was captioned by Ms Ali: 'Had the best few days with this gang and they have made Somaliland some what home again. Love you all' The Prime Minister's girlfriend went with her friend Nimco Ali, a campaigner against female genital mutilation, who was born in Somaliland.
    During their trip, they met the self-declared Somaliland president Muse Bihi Abdi to discuss women's issues and sea pollution.
    The UK is among a handful of nations who have diplomatic relations with Somaliland, which broke away from neighbouring Somalia in 1991.
    But crucially, the US – which backs Somalia – does not.

    Miss Symonds met local fishermen in SomalilandIt is uncertain whether Miss Symonds applied for a US Electronic System for Travel Authorization (Esta).
    If she did, she would have been scuppered by her travel history.
    An Esta is an automated system which decides whether tourists can enter the country for 90 days without a visa, providing they do not pose a security risk.
    In 2016, a question was added to the Esta form, asking: 'Have you travelled to, or been present in Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia or Yemen on or after March 1, 2011?'

    The Prime Minister’s girlfriend (pictured) went with her friend Nimco Ali, a campaigner against female genital mutilation, who was born in Somaliland.




    Answering 'yes' to this question will see an Esta application refused outright.
    Miss Symonds had hoped to visit the United States instead of travelling with Mr Johnson to this weekend's G7 summit of the world's major economic powers in the French seaside city of Biarritz.
    She has a series of meetings in America as part of her job as an adviser for Oceana, a non-profit organisation that seeks to protect the world's oceans.

    It is uncertain whether Miss Symonds (pictured with the then Mayor of London Mr Johnson in 2012) applied for a US Electronic System for Travel Authorization (Esta) Somaliland - a 'country' no one calls a nation

    Somaliland is a self-declared nation on the horn of Africa which celebrated independence from Somalia in 1991 following a brutal civil war.
    Even though Somaliland has governed itself for 28 years, every other nation – including the UK and the United States – views it as an autonomous region of Somalia rather than as an independent state.
    Somaliland has for the most part not suffered from the violent Islamic insurgency that has plagued Somalia for years.
    Despite this, it was targeted by Donald Trump's travel ban, which restricts the ability of citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries to enter America. Its citizens are banned from entering the US as long-term immigrants and may face further security checks if travelling as tourists.

    +9


    In 1993, Somalian forces shot down two Black Hawk helicopters in the capital of Mogadishu
    Somaliland officials have been campaigning to be exempted from the travel ban. In 2017, former foreign minister Saad Ali Shire said: 'Somaliland is a separate country. We don't have the troubles and problems with terrorism and extremism that they have in Somalia.'
    However the Foreign Office warns that Britons should avoid all travel to both Somalia and Somaliland, with exceptions for the Somaliland capital of Hargeisa and the coastal city of Berbera.
    In 1993, Somalian forces shot down two Black Hawk helicopters in the capital of Mogadishu, resulting in the deaths of 18 Special Forces soldiers. Director Ridley Scott dramatised the conflict in the 1999 movie, Black Hawk Down.

    Miss Symonds now faces a race against time to get the ban lifted. Efforts to resolve the matter quickly have been made more difficult because she cannot – officially – ask Downing Street to intervene on her behalf.
    When she moved into No 10, officials issued a carefully worded statement saying it would result in 'no extra cost to the taxpayer'.
    This reflected the fact that she is not married to Mr Johnson, who is still wed to second wife Marina Wheeler, the mother of four of his children.
    It means that unlike No 10 spouses such as Cherie Blair or Samantha Cameron, Miss Symonds does not have her own Downing Street staff.
    Miss Symonds, the US embassy in London and Downing Street all declined to comment last night.
    But a diplomatic source said: 'We are hopeful this can be sorted out in time for Ms Symonds to go to the US as planned.'
    For decades the Somali region has been hit by violence from rival Islamic terror groups including Al Qaeda and Al Shabaab.
    In the minds of many Americans, Somalia is associated with the Black Hawk Down tragedy, when 18 US Special Forces soldiers were killed in 1993 after two helicopters were shot down in the capital Mogadishu when a mission to seize a warlord went tragically wrong.
    Donald Trump sparked controversy last month when he told Somali-born US Democrat politician Ilhan Omar to 'go back' to her native country.
    Miss Ali, who was awarded the OBE in June, was born in Somaliland in 1982, when it was part of Somalia. She moved to the UK aged four.
    Miss Symonds carried out her first public engagement at No 10 alongside Mr Johnson last week when they met guests from six hospices.
    She followed it up on Friday with her first speech at the annual Birdfair event in Rutland, East Midlands, known as the 'birdwatchers' Glastonbury', appearing alongside TV animal rights activist Chris Packham.
    Miss Symonds' hopes of establishing herself as Downing Street's 'First Lady' were boosted at the weekend when it was confirmed she will accompany Mr Johnson on the Prime Minister's traditional September stay at Balmoral with the Queen.

    She will be the first unmarried partner of a sitting prime minister to visit the Queen's official residence in Scotland.

    Mr Johnson was born in New York, but in 2016 it was reported he had renounced his US citizenship after being hit with a tax bill of tens of thousands of pounds by American authorities.

    How does someone whose job is protecting the oceans get mixed up with a conservative politician? They would seem to be complete opposite ideologies.

    Brexit: shutting down parliament 'gravest abuse of power in living memory'

    Exclusive: legal advice states action to force no-deal Brexit would be open to court battle

    Boris Johnson would be committing the “gravest abuse of power and attack on UK constitutional principle in living memory” if he shuts down parliament to help force through a no-deal Brexit, according to legal advice obtained by Labour.
    In a six-page document prepared for Jeremy Corbyn, the shadow attorney general, Shami Chakrabarti, laid out how any such move by the prime minister would be open to immediate legal challenge in the courts.




    She said it could be subject to judicial review and the courts “might well even grant interim injunctive relief in order to allow both houses of parliament to continue to sit and discharge their primary and sovereign constitutional role in this current moment of national crisis”.
    The advice from Chakrabarti, a barrister, was commissioned by Labour after leaked emails showed No 10 had sought the counsel of Geoffrey Cox, the attorney general, on whether a five-week prorogation from 9 September might be possible to avoid a confidence vote and help enable a no-deal Brexit.

    The initial legal guidance for No 10 was that shutting parliament may be possible, unless action being taken in the courts by anti-Brexit campaigners succeeds in the meantime.
    Johnson was pressed repeatedly on Monday on what he would do if MPs tried to thwart his Brexit policy – at a press conference at the close of the G7 summit in Biarritz. He declined to rule out temporarily shutting down parliament.
    “I think that this [is] really a matter for parliamentarians to get right ourselves,” he said. “We asked the people to vote on whether they wanted to stay in or leave the EU; they voted to leave by a big majority.
    Asked explicitly whether he would consider proroguing parliament, he said: “I rely on parliamentarians to do the right thing and honour the pledge that they made to the people of this country.”

    Boris Johnson insists backstop must be removed for Brexit deal – videoParliament could be shut from 9 September until 14 October – two weeks before Johnson has promised to implement Brexit with or without a deal – under the plan being considered by No 10.


    The official reason would be a break before a Queen’s speech setting out Johnson’s legislative programme, but it would have the effect of stopping MPs legislating against a no-deal Brexit or ousting the prime minister.
    Chakrabarti’s legal advice, seen by the Guardian, argues any such move would be subject to legal challenge and the courts could intervene to make sure parliament sits while any dispute about prorogation is resolved.
    She also cited the Gina Miller case brought against the government to ensure MPs had to give permission for triggering article 50 as an example of where the courts have found parliament to be sovereign in relation to the EU referendum result.
    “The justices were clear that the referendum was in itself a creature of parliament and absent any specific legislative provision to the contrary, its result remains a political rather than a legally binding outcome and therefore subject to normal constitutional principles in the pursuit of its implementation,” she said.

    In conclusion, Chakrabarti said the courts would entertain an urgent application for judicial review if Johnson were to ask the Queen for a prorogation in September, and an injunction could possibly be granted to allow parliament to sit pending resolution of the dispute.


    “[The] Miller [case] itself contains the most recent and authoritative exposition of the constitutional principle of parliamentary sovereignty,” she said.
    “Whilst it is alarming that lawyers for either Her Majesty’s government or opposition should have even to consider such a scenario in our cherished mature democracy, it is equally heartening that we may rely on our courts to protect it.
    “I have no hesitation in advising that any such attempted administrative action by the government would constitute the gravest abuse of power and attack upon UK constitutional principle in living memory.”
    With a week to go before parliament returns from the summer break, MPs fighting against a no-deal Brexit are considering whether to pass a law against this possibility or hold a vote of no confidence in his administration.
    Corbyn is preparing to meet Westminster opposition leaders at his office in parliament on Tuesday, including Jo Swinson of the Liberal Democrats and Ian Blackford of the SNP, to discuss how they could work together to stop a no-deal Brexit on 31 October.
    However, there are tactical divisions among the rebels. The Labour leader hopes to win a vote of no confidence and has offered to then lead a short-term caretaker government for the sole purpose of extending article 50 and calling a general election, in which Labour would argue for a referendum on a Brexit deal or remaining in the EU.
