Horr Jaffer, 23, from Chechnya, was recruited by IS after his family were killed in Syria.

Sky News was the first to get access to the young man who is now being held prisoner in a Kurdish hospital.

He had been attempting to destroy a Kurd checkpoint by driving a bomb-laden car into their midst.

Four people died and many others were injured, but he was captured attempting to escape after the bomb only partly exploded.

He admitted he knew nothing, not even what country he was in.

“They didn’t tell me anything about what I was doing or where I was. I just had to press the button.”

“I want to be a martyr. I decided after they killed my family,” he told Sky News.

He claimed that foreign fighters from all over the world are coming in droves to Syria to fight with IS.

“There are nations from all over the world there. There is British amongst them. They are from Asian countries, Europe and America. From everywhere,” he said.

Kurdish police have said they will be able to get little information from him but that he will be sent to prison for the rest of his life.

When asked by the reporter if he had any regrets he seemed to show some remorse, saying he just wanted to live a normal life.

“It is hard not to be moved by his anguish. Hard but not impossible. He is a killer,” said Stuart Ramsay, Chief Sky UK Correspondent.

Bafle Talabani, the British-born founder of the Kurds’ elite Counter Terrorism Group warned that if the terror group isn’t stopped now they will come for the west.

EXCLUSIVE: MP George Galloway’s FIRST interview after he was beaten in broad daylight in London

galloway masterson Capture

Neil Masterson, 39,(L) charged with religiously aggravated assault against controversial Bradford West MP

George Galloway, British MP and the supporter of Palestine was attacked by a man, dressed in a Israeli Force T-shirt. Despite the pain, Galloway spoke to Anissa Naouai ‘In The Now’.

George Galloway has spoken out for the first time since he was allegedly attacked by a man for being an “enemy to Judaism.”

Former BBC manager Neil Masterson, 39, appeared at Hammersmith Magistrates’ Court in west London yesterday charged with religiously aggravated assault against the Bradford West MP.

The pro-Palestine politician was attacked in Golborne Road, Notting Hill, London, on Friday evening.

In his first TV interview after being released from hospital, Galloway told RT he is “surprised” by the lack of condemnation on the attack from other UK politicians.

“It’s very painful to walk, to move, even to speak because I sustained a dislocated jaw, quite bad head injuries, and very badly cracked ribs,” he said.

Galloway branded the attack “unprecedented in recent times,” RT reported.

Dark-haired and pale-faced Masterson, of Campden Hill, Kensington, used to work for the Department of Work and Pensions and as a manager at the BBC but is now a full-time carer for a friend, the court heard.

Masterson pleaded not guilty to assault by beating which is religiously aggravated and not guilty to common assault on a male in his 40s, who allegedly came to Galloway’s aid.

Prosecuting, Tom Gill, told the court that Masterson, of Kensington, west London, carried out the attack because he felt “the victim was enemy of Judaism.”

Gill said that Masterson told the police: “I didn’t want him to think I’m scared, Galloway is Anti-semitic and I am Jewish,” the Telegraph reported.

The Respect Party MP was interviewed earlier this month by West Yorkshire Police following a speech in Leeds in which he claimed Bradford was an Israel-free zone.

Defending his comments, Galloway told RT “I don’t have a racist bone in my body.”

“The Zionist apartheid state of Israel is a political construct,” he said. “It has nothing to do with hating people, still less hating a religion.”

Masterson has been remanded in custody to appear at Isleworth Crown Court on September 15.

France: 2 Teenage Girls Planned to Attack Synagogue

Two girls arrested last week were part of network of young Islamists monitored by authorities

Two teenage French girls, arrested last week in a crackdown on citizens who consider traveling to other countries to join “jihad,” were planning to attack a synagogue in Lyon with a suicide bomb, French media revealed Friday.

The two, 15 and 17 years old, were detained and interrogated last week in Venissieux, a suburb of Lyon in southeastern France, and Tarbes, a town in the south, after French authorities uncovered a plan to bomb the Great Synagogue of Lyon. They were charged for conspiracy to commit terrorism.

The two had never met but communicated via social media, the investigation revealed.

“These girls were part of a network of young Islamists who were being monitored by security services,” an unnamed security source was quoted by Newsweek as saying.

They’re neither the first adolescents nor the first females arrested in France. Some after returning from Syria or fetched by families at the Turkish border.

The girls are among some 60 people being investigated in France for criminal association in relation with a terrorist enterprise, in one example of how France is taking judicial action against citizens suspected of seeking careers as foreign fighters, even if they have yet to leave French soil. Thousands of European citizens have made the trip to Syrian battlegrounds, but there is no unified plan of action in Europe.

France is leading the way in Europe in the battle against this problem, and its sweep could get even wider with a planned law that would allow passports to be confiscated from those suspected of planning to fight in Syria or Iraq, and would create new measures to prosecute jihadi wannabes or returnees. France also is planning to join other European countries in blocking Internet sites that espouse the jihadi cause.

All of Europe is worried about the return of battle-hardened citizens looking to continue their jihad in their homeland.

The concern has grown acute with the beheading of American journalist James Foley — by an executioner with an English accent. The group calling itself the Islamic State — now regarded by Western authorities as the most brutal among jihadi organizations — claimed responsibility last week by posting a video of the slaying on the Internet.

France also points to the suspected killer of four people at the Jewish Museum in Brussels in May, Frenchman Mehdi Nemmouche, who fought in Syria, as evidence of the need to prevent potential catastrophes.

“Must I wait for a new Mehdi Nemmouche to fire before I act?” Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said in a recent interview with the online publication Mediapart. He was referring to the tough new measures to be debated this fall — and contending they will not compromise civil liberties.

France, with a Muslim population estimated at 5 million — the largest in Western Europe — is particularly concerned about the flight of youths to the battlefields.

French authorities say there are some 900 people from France who have been implicated in jihad — meaning they have taken part in one, plan to join one, or are returning from one. Several dozen have been killed.

Such measures would put France ahead of other countries in its effort to stop the problem, which some experts see as getting worse.

In a statement released on an online forum, the National Bureau of Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism (BNVCA), one of France’s leading anti-Semitism watchdogs, remarked that synagogues have become increasingly popular targets for Islamists and terrorists. The excessive measures taken to secure Jewish places of worship have turned them into “semi-fortresses”, they said.

BNVCA attribute the recent spike in anti-Semitic crimes in France to the influence of unnamed political parties and sections of the media, which “pillory the Jewish state fighting against the Islamic state in Gaza”.

They also called upon the French Interior Minister to take all possible security measures to foil further attacks, particularly during important Jewish festivals like Yom Kippur, which begins in early October. “Jewish citizens are increasingly pessimistic about their future in France,” the statement added.

Terrorists’ Handbook : A Practical Course for Guerrilla War

In rhetoric and tactics, ISIS sounds a lot like an al-Qaeda manual.

al qaeda manual 2 Capture

President Obama may not have a strategy for defeating the Islamic State, but the Islamic State has a strategy for the U.S. In fact, that strategy is set out, in part, in an al-Qaeda manual recently translated for the benefit of the U.S. military.

A guerrilla war proceeds in phases, according to Abd al-Aziz al-Muqrin’s A Practical Course for Guerrilla War, a strategic and tactical guide to mujahideen intent on establishing “a pure Islamic system free from defects and infidel elements.” It was written after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

The first phase is “attrition (strategic defense),” the time for carrying out attacks, “spectacular operations, which will create a positive impact.” The terrorists use the attacks as a recruitment tool and a morale boost for potential jihadis.

Phase two is the time of “relative strategic balance,” when the jihadis build an army to hold territory that has been wrested from the incumbent regime. “There the mujahidin will set up base camps, hospitals, sharia courts, and broadcasting stations, as well as a jumping-off point for military and political actions,” al-Muqrin writes.

The third phase, a time of internal discord and political upheaval for the “collaborationist” regime, is “decisive.” The terrorists use their conventional army to launch dramatic assaults.

“By means of these mujahadin conventional forces, the mujahidin will begin to attack smaller cities and exploit in the media their successes and victories in order to raise the morale of the mujahidin and the people in general and to demoralize the enemy,” al-Muqrin writes in a passage that brings to mind the Islamic State’s rampage across northern Iraq. “The reason for themujahidin’s treating of smaller cities is that when the enemy’s forces see the fall of cities into the mujahidin’s hands with such ease their morale will collapse and they will become convinced that they are incapable of dealing with the mujahidin.”

Hagel has pandered to Iran, Saudi Arabia and China. There’s no reason that another backward genocidal totalitarian state can’t also attract his pandering. Even if you have to step over the corpses of all the people it killed.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told reporters that the Islamic State “is beyond anything that we’ve seen.” That’s true insofar as al-Qaeda did not build a conventional army or declare itself a state. He shouldn’t be so surprised, though. The U.S. national-security apparatus has been following this jihadist ambition for years.

The manual, translated in 2008 by a research fellow at the Marine Corps University, shows how the Islamic State’s efforts to build an army and establish a caliphate reflect a longstanding goal. An Islamic caliphate has been al-Qaeda’s dream from the beginning. Using principles and tactics similar to al-Qaeda’s, the Islamic State has come closer to realizing that dream.

Al-Muqrin’s primary concern was to explain how al-Qaeda could wage war against the Saudi Arabian regime, but the text was intended as an education tool for jihadis in other areas as well. Discussing the book during an interview with National Review Online, Mary Habeck of the American Enterprise Institute noted a Reuters report (of July 8) on a notebook found at a former al-Qaeda “leadership camp” in Yemen. It’s almost certain that the al-Qaeda student who took those notes was being taught al-Muqrin’s ideas.

“This notebook has word for word” a paragraph from al-Muqrin’s book, “slightly differently translated by the two Arabic interpreters,” Habeck pointed out. Many of these terrorists, she explains, “have their intellectual and military roots in al-Qaeda, and this is what al-Qaeda is attempting to do.” The translator, Norman Cigar, wrote that al-​Muqrin’s ideas were disseminated to Iraqi insurgents as early as 2005.

The Islamic State “has a long history and an origin dating back to AQI, al-Qaeda in Iraq,” White House deputy national-security adviser Ben Rhodes reminded reporters. Obviously, Islamic State terrorists are not constantly referring to al-Muqrin’s book for their next move. Regardless, the manual itself warns, “One must be careful that these characteristics not become a rigid template or a ‘school solution,’ but rather, that they remain adaptable to circumstances in the region.”

ISLAM LONDON UK : MUSLIM WOMEN WARN UK GOVERMENT SHARIA 4 UK?

Britain’s Niqab: unveiling the facts – FactCheck.

Scroll down for a video that will make you spit feathers!

It is an issue which has polarised opinion, caused heated debates and been discussed by top levels of government.

But hard facts on Muslim women’s dress – be it the hijab, burka or niqab – are harder to come by.

As Channel 4 News continues with its series on Britain’s Niqab, FactCheck digs deep to see whether the figures back up the pronouncements.

The claim

“The number of women wearing the burka and niqab has exploded in Britain in recent decades”.
– Anne Marie Waters, council member of the National Secular Society, August 2012factFiction3 Britains Niqab: unveiling the facts   FactCheck

The verdict

Verifying how many Muslim women wear the niqab, or burka, is notoriously difficut, not least because definitions of what the garment is seem to vary.

We’ve asked the Muslim Council of Britain, the Muslim Women’s Network, and the group Faith Matters whether they had any figures on this, and all agreed the numbers are unlikely to exist.

A study in France in 2009 by the internal security services suggested that out of a population of 1.5 million to 2 milllion adult Muslim women, about 1,900 wore either burkas (defined here as a full-body and head covering) or niqabs (where the eyes can be seen).

This figure of 1,900, however, came because the secret service initially came up with a figure of 367, which was deemed to be so low they were asked to count again.

To be fair to the Anne Marie Waters, she isn’t the only one suggesting increasing numbers of women are wearing the garment.

What we do know, however, is that the number of Muslim women and girls living in the UK has risen in the last decade.

In the 2001 census, there were 748,000 women who gave their religion as Muslim, and this had risen to 1.3m by 2011 – an increase of 74 per cent.

If the percentage of Muslim women wearing niqabs or burkas has remained constant, there will have been a rise in the overall number who wear burkas or niqabs, as the population has increased by quite an amount.

What we don’t know, however, is whether more Muslim women are wearing it than previously. In order to do that, we’d need to know the proportion of Muslim women wearing the veil to begin with, compared with the number who do now.

The claimFactFiction2 Britains Niqab: unveiling the facts   FactCheck

“There’s overwhelming support for banning the veil. People feel it’s alien to our way of life.”
– Philip Hollobone MP, 19 September 2013

To ban or not to ban has been the question on the airwaves in recent weeks.

A ComRes/Channel 4 News poll showed that more than half of the public believe women should not be allowed to wear the niqab in public – with 55 per cent backing an outright ban similar to the one in France.

An even greater proportion, 81 per cent, say they support a ban on wearing the niqab in certain public places, such as schools, courts or hospitals.

Last month, a poll for YouGov for The Sun newspaper suggested that 61 per cent of people supported a ban on burkas – defined as a “loose garment worn by women in some Islamic traditions for the purpose of hiding a female’s body and face when out in public”.

But less people now support a ban than previously.

When asked “The burka should be banned in Britain”, 27 per cent disagreed in April 2011 (66 per cent agreed it should be banned), and that had risen to 32 per cent in September (with 61 per cent agreeing).

The claim

“The niqab … collude[s] with making women invisible.”
– Dr Sarah Wollaston MP for Totnes, 16 September 2013factFiction4 Britains Niqab: unveiling the facts   FactCheck

Writing on Twitter, Dr Sarah Wollaston repeated her position that the niqab makes women “invisible”.

She may be speaking metaphorically, but it’s ironic, given that perpetrators of hate crimes against Muslim women appear to have specifically targeted them because of the visibility of the garment they’re wearing.

Figures collected by the group Tell MAMA, which measures attacks against Muslims, suggest that the majority of Muslims who have been physically attacked, or harassed or intimidated because of their faith are women.

The helpline logged more than 630 incidents during the first 12 months of its existence, and Muslim women were targeted in 58 per cent of all incidents.

Tell MAMA has been able to give a breakdown of the nature of the incidents reported. Some Muslim women have called because they have been forced to remove their veil in public buildings, for example the Home Office.

However, several of the other incidents were directly targeted at the veil itself – for example having it ripped off, having faeces smeared on it, or being told “take that ****ing thing off”.

In July, the group released a report which suggested that over 80 per cent of abusive attacks against Muslim women – in ‘offline’ attacks, as opposed to online – the women were wearing the hijab or niqab.

What we don’t know, however, is the religious profile of victims of sexual violence. The Crime Survey for England and Wales doesn’t ask this specific question, and there appears to be little other information as an alternative.

So, while some women may feel the niqab protects them from sexual advances by men, research suggests it could also make them a greater target on the street.

Dr Chris Allen, of the University of Birmingham, wrote the report, Understanding the Impact of anti-Muslim Hate on Muslim Women, and the report is due to be published next month.

He said: “As well as the symbolic value of the garment, the garment itself can be the target of hatred. If you’re the sort of person who perpetrates hate crimes, it becomes very easy to target the person [wearing the niqab].

“There is a stereotype of [women wearing the niqab] as oppressed and meek, and if you want to attack them, it makes them appear an easier target.”

So while Dr Wollaston may consider women who wear the niqab as “invisible”, their attackers do not.

Two charged after Latvian woman was reported to have been held against her will

Mohammed Akmal, 46, of Meade Grove, Longsight, and Naeem Kauser, 46, of Smart Street, Longsight, are both charged with false imprisonment.

Meade Grove, Longsight

Two people have been charged after a Latvian woman was reported to have been held against her will.

Mohammed Akmal, 46, of Meade Grove, Longsight, and Naeem Kauser, 46, of Smart Street, Longsight, have both been charged with false imprisonment.

They are due before Manchester Crown Court on Friday September 5.

On August 18 police received a call from Interpol after a Latvian woman had called them claiming her 36-year-old daughter was being held against her will at an address in north Manchester.

Officers managed to locate the address where the victim was being held and found her the following day.

The woman has since been safeguarded and relocated out of the Manchester area.

Police are continuing to search properties in south Manchester after the young Latvian woman was freed after being trapped in captivity for over a year.

Police raided a flat in Longsight on Tuesday and found the 36-year-old prisoner who is believed to have been trafficked into the UK.

GMP say she was only able to escape after secretly acquiring a phone and calling her mother, who rang Interpol.

Armed with only a brief description of the flat and the surrounding area, detectives in Manchester were able to track down and rescue the woman.

The traumatised victim is believed to have been in the UK for around 14 months. No further details of her ordeal have been released.

She is thought to have been moved around the Longsight area since the New Year and officers were yesterday searching several properties in the district.

Detectives raided a house on Meade Grove on Tuesday, where investigators remained at the scene. It is not the property she was rescued from but police are not ruling whether victim may have been kept there.

Shocked neighbours witnessed Tactical Aid Unit vans arrive on the scene before officers battered down the door.

One resident, who asked not to be named, said: “Generations of the same family have lived there for 30 years and never given us a moment’s trouble.

“It is two brothers and their wives and children so it was a huge shock when police told me what they were investigating.

“The first I knew was when police were there knocking the door down. There’s been activity on the street ever since.”

Another added: “It’s such a quiet street and that house is no different. It’s just unbelievable.

“The police came and showed me a picture of the girl but I’ve never laid eyes on her in my life.”

Two men, both aged 31, and a 46-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of false imprisonment and human trafficking.

The woman came to the UK after being promised work but later learned there was no job offer.

She wasn’t allowed to go outside or make phone calls unaccompanied and is believed to have had her passport seized.

Det Insp Dave Turner said: “We believe this woman was lured into the country and kept against her will in a number of addresses, unsure if she’d see her family again.”

Islamic State’s banker was director of a private Muslim primary school in Birmingham UK

Prominent Islamic cleric Dr Nabil al-Awadi, a naturalised Kuwaiti, was partly resident in the UK until last year, living in Brixton, south London.

Until February 2013, the Sunni was a director of the independent Al-Birr school in Nechells, Birmingham, which was founded in seven years ago.

Now he is president of the Kuwait Scholars’ Union, which has reportedly channelled tens of millions of dollars to the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Iraq and Syria.

Earlier this month Dr al-Awadi was stripped of his Kuwaiti citizenship along with nine other Kuwaitis, after the state cited ‘security reasons’. 

He has also been accused by other prominent clerics in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia of using donations to fund the Islamic State.

The father of Ashya King, the terminally-ill youngster who was taken by his parents from hospitalwithout doctors’ consent, recorded a video explaining why they had gone on the run – hours before their missing son was found by police.

The video of Brett King was posted on YouTube tonight by his eldest son Naveed, less than one hour after the young boy was found alive in Spain.

In the video, Jehovah’s Witness Mr King, 51, called for police to stop the ‘ridiculous chase’, saying their son was ‘perfectly healthy’ and the family wanted to be ‘left in peace’.

The couple had taken Ashya from Southampton General Hospital on Thursday, after doctors told them he had months to live.

It sparked a manhunt across England, France and Spain and police issued a European warrant for their arrests on the grounds of neglect.

He and his wife Naghmeh are now being held in police custody, while their son is being given urgent medical treatment at the Materno-Infantil Hospital in Malaga under police guard.

In the extraordinary video, Mr King – who is pictured holding his son on a bed – said he decided to record the message after being ‘most disturbed’ to find Ashya’s face ‘all over the internet’.

He said he and his wife were not ‘neglecting’ their son and that Ashya, who has a brain tumour, was ‘perfectly healthy’.

He said: ‘We were most disturbed today to find that his face is all over the internet and newspapers and we have been labelled as kidnappers putting his life at risk, neglect.

‘There is nothing wrong with him, he is very happy actually. Since we took him out of hospital, he has been smiling a lot more.’

He added: ‘We’re not neglecting our son, he’s in perfectly good health. My son is smiling, he’s happy, we’re doing things as a family.

‘We just want to be left in peace. He’s very sick. I just want to get on with his treatment. I’m not coming back to England if I cannot give him the treatment I want, which is proper treatment. I just want positive results for my son.’

Ashya’s parents Brett, 51, and Neghmeh, 45, have been arrested by Spanish police under a European arrest warrant after taking their son from hospital

The couple were arrested on Saturday night outside hostel Hotel Esperanza in Benajarafe, southern Spain, 14 miles east of Malaga.

Police say they were outside the hostel in their Hyundai car with their young son when they were caught, at around 10pm local time.

A receptionist at the hostel had called police as the family tried to check in, it emerged last night.

They are expected to be taken to Madrid tomorrow for an extradition hearing at Madrid’s Central Criminal Court.

Their six other children – who were not in the car – are now staying at the hostel.

Receptionist Ilia Pardo told local paper Sur one of the couple’s grown-up children tried to book two rooms.

She added: ‘The family were waiting in the car. As there wasn’t any parking space available inside, I went out to show them where they could park the car.

‘I got nervous when I saw the English number plate because I had seen the news about their disappearance on the Internet a few minutes earlier.

‘There had been a problem with our computers so I couldn’t pass the details of the reservation on to the police as we’re obliged to do.

‘But I told my boss to call the police because I suspected they might be the runaway British family.

‘I did what I was supposed to do. Afterwards one of the sons had a go at me because I called the police.’

She added: ‘The doctors carried the boy out in their arms. He looked very weak, as if he was asleep.’

Assistant Chief Constable Chris Shead of Hampshire Constabulary said there was not currently an update on Ashya’s condition but that he was showing ‘no visible signs of distress’.

He said: ‘There are no winners in this situation. I’ve said all along that this must be a terribly distressing time for Ashya’s family and I stand by that now.

‘Ashya’s brothers and sisters were not in the vehicle. We have located them. They’re all okay, they’re fine. They are actually in a hotel about 10 miles away.’

Mr Shead added that it was too soon to say when Ashya would come back to the UK but that Southampton General Hospital had been contacted to liaise with medical staff in Spain.

In the video, Mr King told how they had wanted to leave the hospital because the NHS could not fund the proton beam treatment that they wanted for their son.

‘We couldn’t take it any more – not knowing and not being able to question anything in fear that they say, “Sorry Mr and Mrs King, emergency protection order, you’re no longer allowed in the ward”,’ he told the camera.

‘Under that stress, our son has grade four brain tumour, we couldn’t discuss or question them at all in fear that our son would be in that ward all day long by himself without his parents being able to come in.

‘We couldn’t be under that system any more. I was going to get the money to pay for the proton beam therapy but they have prevented that now because the Spanish police are involved and I can’t do want I wanted to do.’

‘But straight away afterwards he went into what’s called posterior fossa syndrome, which means very limited moving or talking or doing anything.’

He continued: ‘Proton beam is so much better for children with brain cancer.

‘It zones in on the area, whereby normal radiation passes right through his head and comes out the other side and destroys everything in his head.

‘We pleaded with them for proton beam treatment. They looked at me straight in the face and said with his cancer – which is called medulloblastoma – it would have no benefit whatsoever.

‘I went straight back to my room and looked it up and the American sites and French sites and Switzerland sites where they have proton beam said the opposite, it would be very beneficial for him.

‘Then I spoke to them again, I wrote a letter which he never responded to, saying OK – I will sell my property in order to pay for the proton beam.’

After the boy was found, Hampshire Constabulary posted on its Facebook page: ‘Ashya has been found. He is in Spain with his mum and dad.

‘Police are speaking to his mum and dad and we are waiting to hear on Ashya’s condition.’

Spanish police, announcing the arrest on Twitter, said: ‘Thanks, cracks. The youngster, Ashya King, found in a hotel three kilometres from Velez-Malaga and now in hospital. His parents arrested.’

Earlier, police had issued a European arrest warrant for the couple, as part of the manhunt for the young boy.

Spanish police had  surrounded a flat in Marbella as part of the manhunt for the young boy and his ‘desperate’ parents.

Two Civil Guard guards had been stationed outside a luxury apartment in the resort of Estepona after Hampshire Police received a number of ‘positive sightings’ in the search.

The child is suffering from a brain tumour and is in need of 24-hour-a-day care. He is in a wheelchair and is fed through a tube, but it was thought the system’s battery was due to run out last night.

He had undergone ‘extensive surgery’ for the aggressive tumour, with his last operation eight days ago, police have said.

Speaking outside Hampshire Constabulary’s headquarters this afternoon, Assistant Chief Constable Chris Shead said the European arrest warrant was based around ‘neglect’ but added: ‘That does not necessarily mean they would be charged with that offence. It purely gives us the power to arrest and then we’ll be able to speak to them.

‘Our message to Brett and Naghmeh is that this should not deter you from coming forward, please just come and speak to us.

‘Once we know Ashya is safe, we will consider all other issues. Our first concern is to find him.’

The couple and their seven children, aged from two to 23, boarded a cross-Channel ferry to Cherbourg, France, at 4pm on Thursday, triggering a police alert and a race against time to find them.

The search widened considerably yesterday as Interpol sent out a missing persons alert to each of its 190 member countries.

Friends said the Kings ‘idolised’ their children and had refused to accept that Ashya’s life could not be saved.

The couple are Jehovah’s Witnesses and the decision to take their son without doctors’ approval raised questions over whether they were trying to avoid a blood transfusion, which their faith rejects.

But a spokesman for the Office of Public Information for Jehovah’s Witnesses said there was ‘absolutely no indication’ their move was motivated by religion.

Doctors said Ashya only had four months left to live because of the aggressive nature of his cancer, the friend added.

The boy’s grandmother Patricia King said her family was devastated by the diagnosis but had hoped he was improving after surgery.

Mrs King, who lives near the family in Southsea, Portsmouth, said she had not been told if his condition was terminal, adding: ‘We were all getting more hopeful lately.’

She praised Ashya’s parents as ‘wonderful and caring’ and said her daughter-in-law had kept a bedside vigil.

Mr and Mrs King’s hearing – which will be closed to the press and public – may take place as early as tomorrow.

The couple are expected to oppose extradition so defence lawyers can then argue at a new hearing they should be released on bail for humanitarian reasons.

If they oppose extradition, the extradition judge would have to decide whether to release them on bail or remand them in custody.

‘I JUST WANT POSITIVE RESULTS FOR MY SON': BRETT KING’S VIDEO

In a video blog posted on YouTube by Ashya’s brother Naveed, their father said Ashya was doing well and explained that the family had decided to take him out of hospital to seek a cancer treatment not available on the NHS.

Mr King said: ‘We were most disturbed today to find that his face is all over the internet and newspapers and we have been labelled as kidnappers putting his life at risk, neglect.’

Mr King said there had been ‘a lot of talk’ about the machine used to feed Ashya and whether they could make it work.

Police had warned that the family might not be able to work the machine and that it would run out of battery.

‘As you can see there’s nothing wrong with him, he is very happy actually since we took him out of hospital,’ Mr King said.

‘He has been smiling a lot more, he has very much been interacting with us. But I just wanted to say very quickly why we took him out of the hospital.

‘The surgeon did a wonderful job on his head that took out the brain tumour, completely they reckon.

‘But straight away afterwards he went into what’s called posterior fossa syndrome, which means very limited moving or talking or doing anything.’

Mr King said he had spoken to specialists following Ashya’s surgery and had requested proton beam treatment, which was not available on the NHS.

‘Proton beam is so much better for children with brain cancer,’ he said. ‘It zones in on the area, whereby normal radiation passes right through his head and comes out the other side and destroys everything in his head.

‘We pleaded with them for proton beam treatment. They looked at me straight in the face and said with his cancer – which is called medulloblastoma – it would have no benefit whatsoever.

‘I went straight back to my room and looked it up and the American sites and French sites and Switzerland sites where they have proton beam said the opposite, it would be very beneficial for him.

‘Then I spoke to them again, I wrote a letter which he never responded to, saying OK – I will sell my property in order to pay for the proton beam.’

Mr King said his son’s treatment seemed like ‘trial and error’ and he was told if he questioned the treatment the hospital would seek an emergency protection order.

He said: ‘After that I realised I can’t speak to the oncologist at all, because if I actually ask anything or give any doubt I wasn’t in full accord with them, they were going to get a protection order which meant in his deepest, darkest hour I wouldn’t be there to look after him, and neither would my wife – they would prevent us from entering the ward.

‘That’s such a cruel system I decided I to start looking at the proton beam myself.’

He added: ‘We decided to try and sort it out ourselves but now we’re refugees almost.

‘We can’t do anything. The police are after us. The things we want to do to raise the money to pay for the proton beam, they’ve prevented it now.

‘So my son is being treated and he’s doing fine. We’re very happy with his progress. We’re not neglecting him. He has everything he had in hospital.’

Mr King said Ashya was ‘responding so much better’ than he did in hospital.

‘We couldn’t take it any more – not knowing and not being able to question anything in fear that they say, ‘Sorry Mr and Mrs King, emergency protection order, you’re no longer allowed in the ward’,” he said.

‘Under that stress, our son has grade four brain tumour, we couldn’t discuss or question them at all in fear that our son would be in that ward all day long by himself without his parents being able to come in.

‘We couldn’t be under that system any more. I was going to get the money to pay for the proton beam therapy but they have prevented that now because the Spanish police are involved and I can’t do want I wanted to do.’

Mr King urged police to call off ‘this ridiculous chase’.

‘We’re not neglecting our son, he’s in perfectly good health. My son is smiling, he’s happy, we’re doing things as a family. We just want to be left in peace. He’s very sick. I just want to get on with his treatment. I’m not coming back to England if I cannot give him the treatment I want, which is proper treatment.  I just want positive results for my son.’

BROTHERLY LOVE: THE TOUCHING VIDEO MESSAGE ASHYA’S OLDER BROTHER, NAVEED, MADE AFTER THE FIVE-YEAR-OLD’S OPERATION

In a video posted on YouTube last month, Ashya’s older brother Naveed King told how his younger sibling had been diagnosed with a brain tumour and was undergoing surgery.

Speaking into the camera in a message directly to Ashya, Naveed said: ‘I haven’t slept. I’ve been awake all night worrying. We love you so much. We’re all here for you.

‘Everyone is praying for you. We just want to see your smile again.’

He added: ‘No kid at the age of five deserves to have a brain tumour. Let’s just hope the doctors know what they’re doing and they know exactly where to operate and what to take out, and they take everything out and you can be better.

‘And when we look back in 10 years’ time when you’re 15, we can actually see that things have changed for the better. Just because they’re bad at one point doesn’t mean they’ll always be bad. I love you so much. I can’t wait to see you.’

 

ISIS and other mid-east terror groups will soon attack Europe and the States, Saudi king says

In this Friday, June 27, 2014 file photo, Saudi King Abdullah speaks before a meeting with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry at his private residence in the Red Sea city of in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia”’

by: Abdullah Al-Shihri And Sameer Yaacoub, Associated Press

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — The king of Saudi Arabia has warned that extremists could attack Europe and the U.S. if there is not a strong international response to terrorism after the Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) seized a wide territory across Iraq and Syria.

While not mentioning any terrorist groups by name, King Abdullah’s statement appeared aimed at drawing Washington and NATO forces into a wider fight against ISIS and its supporters in the region. Saudi Arabia openly backs rebels fighting Syrian President Bashar Assad, but is concerned that the breakaway al-Qaida group could also turn those very same weapons on the kingdom.

“I am certain that after a month they will reach Europe and, after another month, America,” he said at a reception for foreign ambassadors Friday.

Official Saudi media carried the king’s comments early Saturday.

“These terrorists do not know the name of humanity and you have witnessed them severing heads and giving them to children to walk with in the street,” the king said, urging the ambassadors to relay his message directly to their heads of state.

ISIS in Iraq

ISIS has been fighting moderate rebels, other extremists and Assad’s forces in Syria for nearly three years. Iraq has faced an onslaught by the Sunni extremists and their supporters since early this year, and the country continues to be roiled by instability.

While providing arms and support to Sunni militants in Syria, Saudi Arabia has denied directly funding or backing the Islamic State group.

UK THREAT LEVELS

British officials raised the country’s terror threat level Friday to “severe,” its second-highest level, because of developments in Iraq and Syria, but there was no information to suggest an attack was imminent. The White House has said it does not expect the U.S. to bump up its terrorism threat warning level.

Saudi Arabia, a major U.S. ally in the region, has taken an increasingly active role in criticizing ISIS. Earlier this month, the country’s top cleric described ISIS and al-Qaida as Islam’s No. 1 enemy and said that Muslims have been their first victims. State-backed Saudi clerics who once openly called on citizens to fight in Syria can now face steep punishment and the kingdom has threatened to imprison its citizens who fight in Syria and Iraq.

Hours later, a roadside bomb targeting an army patrol killed two soldiers and wounded five in Latifiyah, a town 30 kilometres south of Baghdad

A decade ago, al-Qaida militants launched a string of attacks in the kingdom aimed at toppling the monarchy. Saudi officials responded with a massive crackdown that saw many flee to neighbouring Yemen. In the time since, the kingdom has not seen any massive attacks, though it has imprisoned suspected militants and sentenced others to death.

Meanwhile Saturday, police in Iraq said a suicide bomber drove his explosives-laden car into an army checkpoint in the town of Youssifiyah, killing 11 people, including four soldiers, and wounding at least 24 people. Youssifiyah is 20 kilometres south of Baghdad.

Hours later, a roadside bomb targeting an army patrol killed two soldiers and wounded five in Latifiyah, a town 30 kilometres south of Baghdad.

Medical officials confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to speak to journalists.

A man has been charged with religiously-aggravated assault after MP George Galloway was attacked in a west London street.

The Respect MP for Bradford West was posing for pictures in Golborne Road, Notting Hill, when he was assaulted on Friday evening.

He suffered bruising to his head and is believed to have had some ribs broken.

Neil Masterson, 39, of Camden Hill, will appear at Hammersmith Magistrates Court on Monday.

He has also been charged with common assault against a man in his 40s who came to the victim’s aid, police said.

Mr Galloway was posing for pictures with people in the west London street when a man “leapt on him and started punching him”, a spokesman for the MP said.

The assailant also made reference to the Holocaust, the spokesman said.

Mr Galloway was interviewed under caution by police earlier this month over remarks he made about Israel.

George Galloway hospitalized with possible broken jaw after street attack

George Galloway

A picture, released by Respect via Twitter and taken before Mr Galloway went to hospital, shows the extent of his injuries

George Galloway has been taken to hospital with a suspected broken jaw after he was attacked on a London street, his spokesman has said.

The Respect MP was posing for pictures with people in Golborne Road, Notting Hill, when a man allegedly set upon him. Police were quickly at the scene and arrested a man.

The MP’s spokesman said he had bruising and was in “a pretty bad shape”.

He said the alleged attacker had been shouting something about the Holocaust.

“George was posing for pictures with people and this guy just attacked him, leapt on him and started punching him,” the spokesman said.

“It appears to be connected with his comments about Israel because the guy was shouting about the Holocaust.”

Mr Galloway was interviewed under caution by police earlier this month after he made controversial comments about Israel.

The MP for Bradford West said in a speech that Bradford had been “declared an Israel-free zone” and urged people to reject all Israeli goods, services academics and tourists.

His spokesman said he did not know whether the attacker was an Israeli, an EDL-supporter, or whether he had another motive.

Actual bodily harm

He said Mr Galloway also suffered a suspected broken rib and severe bruising to the head and face in the attack, which happened on Friday evening.

The MP was taken to St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, following the incident and is expected to remain there overnight.

Meanwhile, a Metropolitan Police spokesman confirmed police had been called to Golborne Road at around 19:40 BST after a man was assaulted in the street.

“Officers attended. The suspect was found a short time later and stopped,” the spokesman said.

“He was arrested on suspicion of ABH (actual bodily harm) and taken to the south London police station.”

A man was arrested and cautioned in 2008 in connection with an attack against Mr Galloway.

The politician needed medical treatment after he was pelted with a rubber stress ball while campaigning in an open-top bus in London.

An earlier version of this story reported that a man had been cautioned by police and that Mr Galloway was given medical treatment without being taken to hospital. However, this was based on information about an entirely separate attack on Mr Galloway in 2008 by a different man.

DOGS FEAST ON EBOLA VICTIM CARCASSES IN LIBERIA

dogs ebola Capture

Packs of Liberian dogs have been eating the remains of dead Ebola victims in Monrovia, according to multiple witnesses. Many have contacted the government health ministry, but no measures were taken to stop the packs of dogs pulling dead bodies from their graves, The New Dawn reported.

The report states:

…the remains of dead Ebola victims were reportedly seen, eaten by dogs, something reminiscent of the brutal civil war here, when dogs ate dead bodies on the streets. The Liberian Government, through the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, buried some unaccounted-for corpses, suspected to have died from the Ebola Virus in that township few weeks ago. The burial was done in a hurry at night following a standoff in the day between residence and the Ministry of Health burial team. The former had refused to grant the authority a piece of land to carry out the burial. The dogs, in their numbers, were seen pulling the bodies out of the shadowed grave and hastily eating them.

Dogs can act as a transmitter of Ebola, but canines do no development symptoms from the virus, according to medical experts. A medical doctor told News24, “this means that dogs won’t get sick but they still could carry a potential risk through licking or biting.”

One resident complained that the government — by letting dogs rip apart the dead carcasses — was disrespecting the citizens they are supposed to serve, and also were showcasing gross negligence in efforts to contain the virus. “The government took an oath to defend and protect us; to see them act in such manner is unacceptable and we’ll never allow the government come to bury any longer,” he said.

Separately, Liberia’s president has fired all of his Cabinet ministers that refused an order to return to their country to help combat the deadly virus.

Liberian President Ellen Johnson told the Wall Street Journal Tuesday, “It is unlikely we are yet at the peak of Ebola’s spread.” Ebola has killed over 1,400 people in Africa, with Liberia being hit hardest, accounting for almost half of the deaths.

THE YOUNG VICTIMS OF ROTHERHAM COUNCIL’S ANTI-RACISM POLICIES

Written by Paul Austin Murphy / posted in Liberty GB.

According to the latest enquiry into Muslim sexual grooming gangs in Rotherham, at least 1,400 children were subjected to sexual exploitation between 1997 and 2013.

Rotherham Borough Council’s report is the third of three inquiries. The other two were in 2002 and 2006. Both previous enquires explicitly stated that the council and the police were fully culpable and that the extent of the problem “could not have been clearer”.

As yet, no one has been sacked. Council leader Roger Stone has just resigned; he wasn’t sacked.

Think about that. At least 1,400 victims in one northern English town in a period of 16 years. The same kind of thing has of course happened in dozens of other cities and towns throughout England. And in virtually all these cases, the perpetrators were Muslims.

THE ENDLESS FIGHT AGAINST RACISM

The newspapers are telling us that staff at Rotherham Council feared to identify the fact that the perpetrators were Pakistanis. Yet many people have known that for over twenty years – certainly since 2004. So all we have here is a new acknowledgement of the reality by an English council, not a new acknowledgement of the reality itself.

Many of the newspapers which are now keen to point the finger at Rotherham Council were once part of the problem. National newspapers (as well as regional ones) – on the whole – hardly ever featured these cases. And even when they did, they too would never say that virtually all the perpetrators were Pakistani – never mind that they were Muslims.

The Daily Mail, for example, continues the problem by failing to mention the fact that the perpetrators were overwhelmingly Muslim. How can this – or any – newspaper castigate Rotherham Council when it’s committing the same wrong? The Daily Mail says that it was wrong for councillors, police and social workers to have been afraid of saying that the perpetrators were Pakistani. So why now is this newspaper afraid of saying that they were nearly all Muslims?

The thing is, most sexual groomers in the UK are of Pakistani heritage simply because most Muslims in the UK are of Pakistani heritage. If most Muslims in the UK were Arabic (or north African), then nearly all the offenders would be Arabic (or north African). I’m willing to acknowledge that there may be – in theory at least – slight differences of degree between different Muslim ethnic groups. However, since there is a problem with north African, Somalian and Arabic sexual grooming in Sweden, Norway, France and other European countries, I doubt that the differences between Pakistani Muslims and Arabic/ north African Muslims would be that large.

And this points to one obvious conclusion: the problem is not one of race. It’s one of religion (i.e. Islam) and the culture generated by that religion.

The other important point is that Rotherham Council’s confessions (or self-criticisms) – and even the retroactive actions of the police and newspapers – have all been the result of external outrage. What I mean by that is that councillors, newspapers and the police came to realise that the public at large – at least in the areas affected – was well aware of what was happening and very angry that nothing was being done about it. And only when that outrage (partly as a result of EDL demos and various independent investigations) reached a certain critical mass (roughly in 2010) did councils, the police and newspapers begin questioning their various positions on the massive problem of Muslim grooming gangs in England.

The report’s author, Professor Alexis Jay, says that there had been “blatant” institutional failings by the council’s leadership and that senior managers had “underplayed” the sexual grooming of young girls in Rotherham. In addition, South Yorkshire Police had largely dismissed the problem.

The failings of the council, the underplaying by council managers and the dismissals of the police were mostly to do with politics and little to do with the degree of severity of the problem. More correctly, nearly all of the players were scared stiff of being classed as ‘racist’ by other councillors, police bodies and leftist activist groups.

As the report put it:

“Several staff described their nervousness about identifying the ethnic origins of perpetrators for fear of being thought as racist; others remembered clear direction from their managers not to do so.”

In other words, it was deemed to be far more important to fight against possible and often fictional racism than to fight against the systematic and widespread exploitation of literally hundreds of young girls. All these young girls were sacrificed to the battle against racism; or, more correctly, their suffering was deemed to be a lesser evil than the racism which could have been unleashed by highlighting – or even mentioning – the ethnicity or religious affiliations of the sexual groomers. Thus anti-racism achieved the highest possible rank in the scales of justice.

The fact that all the girls – it can be argued – were selected because of their ethnicity (or race) appears to have bypassed the self-styled anti-racists of Rotherham and beyond. Or to put that another way: racism against Muslim sexual-groomers was deemed a worse crime than racism towards young white females.

The Left, as usual, tied itself up in knots. And those non-leftists who passively swallow the many Marxist/ leftist theories about racism – as many non-Leftists do – did the same.

PIOUS ANTI-RACISM

Sections of the Left will attempt to hide the truth, however it’s offered.

For example, if the Pakistani heritage of the perpetrators is mentioned, the word ‘racism’ will be used. If, on the other hand, the fact that all the offenders were Muslims is mentioned, then – yes, you guessed it – we’ll get the debate-stopper, ‘Islamophobia’, from leftists.

Such people are far more culpable than Rotherham’s councillors (the non-leftist ones). Many councillors simply feared the accusations of racism, whereas these kinds of leftists are the ones who did and still do the accusing. Not only that: many councillors, police and social workers have seen the error of their ways, whereas Trotskyists/ communists/ ‘progressives’ want the situation to remain exactly as it was in the period before 2010 – one of complete and total inaction on Muslim sexual-grooming gangs. Why is that? Because many leftists believe either that action against Muslim grooming gangs is itself racist, or that such action will ‘encourage racism’ (as it’s often put).

Thus the young victims of such sexual grooming were – and still are – very low on the list of worthy leftist causes. At the top of that list is the permanent revolution against often fictional and possible racism.

*Video* Hannity Gets in Epic Shouting Match with London Imam Anjem Choudary

Sean Hannity got into an epic shouting match Wednesday night with a London-based imam who believes in the worldwide implementation of Sharia law. Hannity repeatedly grilled Anjem Choudary over whether he believes in a “convert or die” philosophy. Choudary kept turning the tables and arguing that when Americans bomb and murder and torture, “obviously this would have repercussions.”

Choudary denied “convert or die” is happening in Iraq, and the two of them proceeded to shout over each other over who’s the one spewing lies. Choudary kept accusing America of double standards, and Hannity fired back, “If you shut up, I’ll give you an answer!”

Hannity went down the line and grilled Choudary on the tenets of Sharia. He asked what the punishment would be for a women dressing immodestly. Choudary did not answer directly (though he did say “women are not slabs of meat in Islam”) and Hannity shouted, “Are you that dumb and ignorant?!”

South Yorkshire Police face fresh crticism in child abuse scandal

south yorkshire police Capture

A report published on Tuesday said at least 1,400 Rotherham children were sexually abused between 1997 and 2013.

The police force at the centre of the Rotherham child abuse scandal is still failing to record crimes against children properly, a report has said.

South Yorkshire Police’s public protection unit spent a “great deal of time” trying to “disprove” allegations, said HM Inspectorate of Constabulary.

It said the force’s public protection unit showed “a disregard for victims”.

A separate report on Tuesday found a “collective failure” by the authorities to stop child abuse in Rotherham.

That inquiry, by Professor Alexis Jay, said at least 1,400 children were sexually exploited from 1997-2013, mainly by gangs of men of Pakistani heritage.

The new investigation, which saw HMIC inspectors visit South Yorkshire Police in February, threatened to put more pressure on police and crime commissioner Shaun Wright.

He has so far resisted calls to resign as commissioner, with Nick Clegg the latest to call for him to go, but he has quit the Labour Party.

The HMIC report said the force’s public protection unit (PPU) had a cultural “disregard for victims”.

It criticised the unit for under-recording crime, highlighting the impact this had on vulnerable children who had been victims of sexual assault.

The HMIC looked at 117 crimes that should have been recorded, but found that only 89 had been.

Of those, three were wrongly classified. The report highlighted “a serious need for improvement in the accuracy and timeliness of crime recording decisions”.

It said: “There is an inherent risk that a significant number of reported offences of a serious nature have not been recorded and that vulnerable victims have, as a consequence, been left unprotected or at risk of further offending.”

The force welcomed the HMIC report, but it said it was important to note it was about the recording of crime and not the way it was investigated.

“We recognise that systems need improving and there is a programme in place to do so, including IT and the force’s public protection unit stand-alone system,” the statement said.

South Yorkshire Police is already under scrutiny after Professor Jay’s report criticised police for not making child sexual exploitation (CSE) a priority and “regarding many child victims with contempt”.

Thanks should go to the EDL who have been instrumental in bringing these matters to the forefront and into the attention of the mainstream media…….love them or loathe them ,it cannot be denied that they speak the truth!

Revelations of child abuse on a massive scale in Rotherham have prompted calls for resignations among those who ran the council at the time. Who was in charge?

Rotherham Council’s leadership have been accused of “blatant” collective failures in a report that detailed the sex abuse of hundreds of childrenbetween 1997 and 2013, mainly by gangs of men of Pakistani heritage.

Report author Professor Alexis Jay said senior managers had “underplayed” the scale and seriousness of the problem and police also failed to prioritise it. She insisted that, given her findings, “nobody could say ‘I didn’t know'”.

Who are some of the people who held key posts at the council and the police at the time of the abuse?

Shaun Wright was appointed cabinet member for the newly-created department of children and young people’s services in April 2005.

He resigned in 2010 when the scandal first surfaced, saying this week “I… take full responsibility for my part in the collective failures which took place at Rotherham Council during the time I was in office and indeed to that end I resigned in 2010.”

In 2012 Mr Wright was elected as South Yorkshire’s police and crime commissioner.

He has insisted he will stay in that post despite facing increasing pressure to step down following the report’s publication. He has resigned from the Labour Party, which had threatened to suspend him.

Mr Wright has said he had no idea about the “industrial scale” of abuse that took place during his tenure.

She is not named in the report, other than being among a list of interviewees who were spoken to as part of the research.

Mrs Thacker was made an OBE in 2006 for services to young people.

In November 2012, she drew criticism for her decision to remove three foster children who were “not indigenous white British” from a couple who were members of UKIP.

Last year she faced questions from the Home Affairs Select Committee over the abuse scandal, telling MPs: “I don’t think we’d fully accept we’ve failed dismally to deal with the issue.”

She was quoted in the Daily Mail this week, saying: “Protecting young people from harm is not the responsibility of any single agency and as a community we need to continue to work together to tackle this horrific crime.”

The council website says his current role is to oversee the provision of education and social care to children and young people in Rotherham.

“I can categorically say that until I came into children’s services in 2010 I was not aware of the depth and breadth of child exploitation in Rotherham,” he told BBC News.

Mr Lakin, who is also deputy leader of the council, has said he will not resign from the authority.

Martin Kimber

Martin Kimber became chief executive in October 2009.

He has said he accepts the report and the recommendations made and has apologised to the victims of abuse.

Mr Kimber has said no council employees will face disciplinary action, as there is not enough evidence to prosecute.

Ged Fitzgerald, chief executive, 2001-03

Ged Fitzgerald

During Ged Fitzgerald’s three-year tenure, the inquiry found that a report detailing the growing problem of child abuse in the town was suppressed and the researcher who wrote it disciplined.

The inquiry concluded: “If the senior people concerned had paid more attention to the content of the report, more might have been done to help children who were being violently exploited and abused.”

Mr Fitzgerald, who was among former staff interviewed as part of the report, is now chief executive of Liverpool City Council. The council has said neither it, nor Mr Fitzgerald, has any comment to make.

Matt Jukes, policing commander for Rotherham, 2006-10

 

Matt Jukes is now Deputy Chief Constable of South Wales Police.

South Wales’ police and crime commissioner, the former Labour minister Alun Michael, said: “His involvement at Rotherham was at a time which the report states the police became more proactive, better liaison was established and child sexual exploitation became a priority and I am satisfied that there is nothing in the report that in any way undermines the confidence we have in DCC Jukes as a leader. “

The report lists in full the interviewees it spoke to, including more than 50 current and former council staff, and current and former elected members, along with 11 members or former senior police officers.

Tory MP Carswell switches to UKIP

Tory MP Douglas Carswell has defected to the UK Independence Party and will stand down as MP for Clacton to seek re-election in a by-election.

If he wins the by-election he will be the first UKIP MP to take a seat in Westminster.

The maverick Eurosceptic backbencher said he wants to “shake up” the cosy Westminster “clique”.

He unveiled his surprise announcement at a news conference in central London.

He told reporters he did not believe Conservative leader and Prime Minister David Cameron was “serious about the change we need”.

He said the decision to jump ship from the Conservatives had given him “sleepless nights” but he wanted to see “fundamental change in British politics” and UKIP – a party he believed belonged to its members rather than a “little clique” of political insiders – could deliver it.

UKIP leader Nigel Farage, who this week was selected to fight South Thanet at the 2015 general election, said it was the “bravest and most honourable” decision he had ever seen in British politics.
