BREXIT: AT LAST A WITHDRAWAL AGREEMENT

  After all, a withdrawal agreement consisting of 585 pages has been drafted. The document is a road map for the UK to leave the EU scheduled for 29 March 2019. It’s important to lay out first the important points of this agreement and then to evaluate these critically and logically.

Anjem Choudary: A Real Danger or Just a Scarecrow?

It would be most pertinent to state in the very outset that the presence of Muslims in the UK dates back more than one hundred years and has deep roots in British history.

They influenced the growth of Britain and contributed to the country’s growth and reconstruction of after World War II. As of mid-2010, the official total of the resident population in the UK was estimated to be 62.03 million of which 2.9…

The Brexit Shambles – Theresa May is in Office But Not in Power

Today, as the EU Council convenes in Brussels I expected to be writing a quite different opinion piece. Theresa May was expected to announce outline agreement on the EU Withdrawal Treaty and bring some long overdue clarity to the post Brexit transition. Instead we seem to be as far away from agreement as ever and the consequences are unforgiveable. The government have reached a Brexit impasse. Boxed in by the impossible fantasies of the hard Brexiter’s in her own party on one side and the implacable and intransigent members of…

Extradition is normally regulated by treaties between the countries.

Intra Party Conflict among the Conservatives and the Future of Brexit

The conflict became public when Boris Johnson, the foreign secretary in Theresa May’s cabinet resigned from the position he held. The two differed over the latter’s Brexit policy. Boris, who had been Mayor of London and an active supporter of Leave campaign, has been at odds with Theresa May’s vision of Brexit for quite some time and he never concealed from the public eye what he felt about the Lady Prime Minister as well as the ongoing negotiations over Brexit. He never hesitated to give his comments about the PM…

Motives of Tripartite Bombers of Syria

They lied yesterday and they are lying even today. They have no remorse of how they subjected Iraq, Syria and Libya to complete ruin. They think that the world at large is unaware of their dirty designs in Afghanistan, a port from where they may ultimately embark to ruin Pakistan. Yes Pakistan; they want to punish her for maintaining a strong, disciplined fighting force with their nuclear assets. On Saturday morning, the 14th of April, Britain joined the US and France in bombing Syria. Theresa May, the British Prime Minister,…
