‘As impressionable and vulnerable young Britons are considered at risk of radicalization, dozens may be taken into state care. Others have had their passports confiscated amid fears of extremist Islamist indoctrination.

This troubling trend was uncovered by the Times on Monday, after it obtained figures from an undisclosed high profile source.

Over thirty children in the past twelve months were found to have been subject to court orders because they were categorized extremist or thought to be at risk of radicalization.

Some have been put under temporary care orders, with UK courts increasingly intervening when family members seek to indoctrinate youngsters with radical ideologies.’

Three-Year-Old London Child Deemed “Extremist” and Placed in Government Reeducation Program

‘The United Kingdom has gone batshit crazy. There’s simply no other way to put it. I warned about Britain’s “war on toddler terrorists” earlier this year in the post: The War on Toddler Terrorists – Britain Wants to Force Nursery School Teachers to Identify “Extremist” Children. Here’s an excerpt:

Nursery school staff and registered childminders must report toddlers at risk of becoming terrorists, under counter-terrorism measures proposed by the Government.

The directive is contained in a 39-page consultation document issued by the Home Office in a bid to bolster its Prevent anti-terrorism plan.’

‘The US and Turkey have agreed to carry out a military campaign to create a buffer-zone inside northern Syria – the first move by foreign powers to seize territory in the country since the start of the civil war four years ago.

Amid rising tension following the launch of air strikes by Ankara against Kurdish fighters as well as Isis, and warnings of a civil war breaking out in Turkey, the campaign will be discussed at an emergency Nato meeting on Tuesday in Brussels.

However, rifts have already begun to emerge between America and Turkey over the mission to drive out Isis and carve out an area of up to 65 miles from east of Aleppo to the Euphrates river.’

‘David Cameron will order ‘immediate’ air strikes against ISIS in Libya, Syria or anywhere in the world if he believes there is an imminent threat to British lives.

The Prime Minister indicated his willingness to use military action as he said the international community is stepping up efforts to ‘put the squeeze’ on the terror group.

He held talks with the Indonesian president Joko Widodo on how to tackle jihadis as he begins a four day tour of South East Asia in Jakarta.’

‘Turkey has said its military is not targeting Syrian Kurds after Kurdish forces and a monitoring group claimed its tanks shelled Kurdish-held villages in northern Syria.

Turkey has said it is investigating the reports of shelling even as it continues to round up suspected activists of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group as part of a double offensive.

If confirmed, Sunday night’s incident would be the most serious incident yet of Turkey targeting Kurdish-controlled areas in the Syrian conflict.’

‘A Western official has confirmed the existence of clandestine business links between Takfiri ISIL terrorists and the Turkish government.

In a report published on Sunday, The Guardian quoted an unnamed senior Western official as saying that evidence on direct dealings between Turkish officials and ranking ISIL members was “undeniable.”

According to the Western official, the documents on the undeclared alliance were obtained following a US raid on the compound of the key ISIL figure, Abu Sayyaf, in Syria in May, which led to his killing.

“There are hundreds of flash drives and documents that were seized there,” the official said. “They are being analyzed at the moment, but the links are already so clear that they could end up having profound policy implications for the relationship between us and Ankara.”’

‘Tory advisers are demanding a crucial review of the government’s benefits sanctions regime, following months of criticism over its devastating impact on the disabled, single parents and ethnic minority children.

The Social Security Advisory Committee (SSAC), which offers the government impartial advice on social policy, insists the Tory policy of scrapping claimants’ benefits payments must be stopped.

It warns the measure should not be resumed until “a firm evidence base” has been established for its effectiveness.’

‘Are any words in the English language more abused than ‘for your convenience’? As soon as you read them you know that it’s not your convenience an organisation has in mind, but its own.

Last week, my bank sent me a contactless debit card. If you don’t have one yet, the chances are you soon will have.

It looks like any other credit or debit card, but contains a tiny radio receiver which – when it is waved within a couple of inches of a ticket machine or terminal at a shop checkout – can be used to make a payment.’

‘Three more police forces have signalled that those who grow cannabis for their own consumption will not be targeted, it has emerged.

Those caught smoking or cultivating the drug on a small scale in Derbyshire, Dorset and Surrey, can expect to escape with little more than a caution, according to reports.

The development comes after Durham Constabulary declared it would only go after people using the drug if there was a complaint or if they were being “blatant”.

The change in attitudes will be seen as a further step towards decriminalisation and follows claims by drug experts that police forces across Britain are quietly turning a blind eye to cannabis use in order to focus their attentions on more pressing priorities.’
