EDUCATION chiefs sparked fears for kids’ safety today by admitting they can’t screen foreign teachers working here if there’s a No Deal Brexit.Schools would lose access to an international database which flags banned teachers, at the end of March.Officials have revealed they don’t know how they will check potential teachers from the EU are safe to work with kids if we leave with No DealAlamy Teachers who are slapped with sanctions or restrictions on teaching in their home countries might not be flagged up after we go.That would leave schools to make their own checks when they hire staff from the EU – rather than using a Government scheme as they do now.Officials revealed today that they will update schools “shortly” on “keeping children safe guidance”.Sources confirmed to The Sun that EU citizens would face similar checks to those from...

Labour MP Cancels Local Brexit Meeting, Votes for Anti-Brexit Amendments

Thu, 31 Jan 2019 16:22:31 +0000 On Friday Labour MP Cat Smith was due to hold a public meeting promising to discuss Brexit with her constituents, a majority of whom voted to leave the EU. The meeting was due to take place in one of the highest voting wards in her constituency…Writing on Facebook the evening before the meeting was due to take place, Smith said she had “been advised to cancel the event due to concerns over security… a decision about going ahead with meetings in Knott End and Lancaster will be made in the morning following further discussions with the police.” Strangely, Lancashire Police insist they had not advised Smith to cancel the event. Why did she imply they had..?Surely this abrupt cancellation of the meeting can’t be anything to do with the fact that three days later she voted for all the Second Referendum Campaign backed amendments…The post Labour MP Cancels Local Brexit Meeting, Votes for Anti-Brexit Amendments appeared first on Guido Fawkes.

Chuka’s Local Party Making Deselection Moves This Evening

Thu, 31 Jan 2019 14:01:12 +0000 Streatham Constituency Labour Party is this evening holding a special all member meeting to vote on whether future meetings should be switched from a delegate based ‘General Committee’ structure to an ‘All Member Meeting’ structure, whereby any member can vote – a move recommended by Corbyn’s ‘Democracy Review’. By switching to All Member Meetings with one member one vote, it will be a lot easier for the new influx of Momentum members to successfully move to deselect Chuka…But local left wing members are worried that the Blairite controlled local party executive are deliberately not publicising the meeting so that they can keep the General Committee structure and keep pro-Chuka control of the local party.The meeting was originally supposed to take place in November but was abruptly cancelled without a reason being given. Now the hard left are so worried that the meeting will be poorly attended by new Corbynista members that they have drafted in left wing…

No Deal Still Most Popular Brexit Option

Thu, 31 Jan 2019 11:50:47 +0000 Despite a never-ending series of threats from giant EU-funded corporations and even warnings that 12,000 people will die from lack of fruit, the latest Sky Data poll has found that No Deal is still the most popular Brexit option.

Lib Dems Accept David ‘The Jews’ Ward Back Into Party

Thu, 31 Jan 2019 10:27:54 +0000 David ‘The Jews’ Ward has been accepted back into the Liberal Democrats, after he was finally sacked in 2017 for his “deeply offensive and antisemitic” comments. Despite this, Ward has in recent months been campaigning for the party.Previously the Lib Dems refused to kick him out when he said he would fire rockets at Israel, when he mocked the #JeSuisJuif hashtag at the time of the Kosher supermarket murders, ranted about “the Jews” on Holocaust Memorial Day, compared Israel-Palestine to the Holocaust, and attacked the Home Affairs inquiry on anti-Semitism.It was only after Ward blamed the west for the murder of PC Keith Palmer, and wrote a 15,000 word thesis on “the influence of the Israeli lobby on the British political system” that he was finally booted out. Given the Lib Dem’s refusal to crack down on him for years on end, perhaps it shouldn’t  come as too much of a surprise that they let their odious former MP back in…The post Lib Dems Accept David …
