Britain’s censors have found yet another silencing tool. Britain is a country where tweeting, preaching, or posting the wrong thing can get someone in trouble with the police. Under the circumstances, it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that Boris Johnson, one of the most prominent of those who campaigned for the U.K. to leave the EU — and now a possible leader of the Conservative party — is facing prosecution for the official Leave campaign’s claim that the U.K. sent “the EU £350 million a week.” This was money, Vote Leave asserted, that could be used to help fund the perpetually needy National Health Service, a claim that was plastered along the side of its big red campaign bus. It was also a claim that — like many others made by both sides in the course of the referendum campaign — was not quite as accurate as, shall we say, it might have been. Although it is true that Britain’s notional EU bill was then about … [Read more...] about Boris Johnson Is Being Prosecuted over a Campaign Slogan

He was then appointed Foreign Secretary under Theresa May’s premiership, but he resigned in criticism of Theresa May's Brexit approach. In his view, a no deal exit from the European Union corresponds most closely with the British public's idea of Brexit.

Boris Johnson could appear in court after a crowdfunded legal case filed an application for a summons against him for misconduct in a public office. Marcus Ball, the private prosecutor leading the BrexitJustice campaign, said this morning they have spent “over two and a half years collecting evidence, finding witnesses”. The application submitted contains “a lot more information than you would need to make it clear we’re very serious”. A district judge’s decision on the case could be made as soon as within a month, The Londoner understands. Ball was careful to stress they have no expectations as to the date. BrexitJustice alleges that Johnson (left) has “committed three counts of misconduct in public office”, specifically “statements concerning the cost of European Union membership, which were false, misleading and which abused public trust”. If Johnson were summoned, Ball or a colleague … [Read more...] about The Londoner: Decision looms on Boris Johnson prosecution

We don't know what was going through the head of the young killer as he came up behind Jodie Chesney, 17, in a park in East London on Friday night. We don't know why he stabbed her in the back. It is not clear whether he even knew who the talented and popular student from Havering Sixth Form College was. It may have been a case of mistaken identity, or he simply may not have cared. There are some who think the murder was a barbaric gang-inspired initiation ritual. Beyond the barest details, I am afraid we do not yet know what he looked like, let alone who he was or where he came from. But there is one thing I can tell you about him with absolute certainty. He thought he could get away with it. He thought he could carry a knife in a public place — with murderous intent — and that there was nothing the rest of us could do.
