BRITAIN: ‘ UK Scientists apply for license to play at being God on human embryo’s ‘

#AceNewsReport – Sept.18: UK scientists have applied for permission to genetically modify human embryos for the first time as part of research into the earliest stage of human development.

Stem cell scientists at the Francis Crick Institute in London have asked the government’s fertility regulator for a license to perform controversial genome editing on human embryos.

Researchers hope the experiments will help scientists to learn more about genes in the first few days of human fertilization.

Chinese researchers became the first researchers in the world to announce they had altered the DNA of human embryos in April.

The news prompted a fresh debate over the ethics of cheap and simple new genetic techniques, dubbed genome editing, which enable scientists to modify human genes.

‘ British Royals Return to Runnymede where Magna Carta sealed 800 years ago’

#AceNewsReport – LONDON (Reuters):June.12: Queen Elizabeth will return on Monday to the setting where 800 years ago one of her predecessors accepted the Magna Carta, the English document that put limits on the power of the crown for the first time and laid the foundation for modern freedoms.

The Magna Carta, Latin for “Great Charter“, was ratified by King John of England in June 1215, at Runnymede, about 20 miles west of London, after an uprising by his barons. It established certain rights of the English people and placed the monarch under the rule of law.

Not only does it form the bedrock of Britain’s constitutional freedoms, it was the basis for the U.S. Bill of Rights, the U.S. Declaration of Independence and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Three of its 63 clauses remain on Britain’s statute book.

“The relevance of the Magna Carta in the 21st century is that it is the foundation of liberty,” said Robert Worcester, chairman of the Magna Carta 800th Committee.

The queen, who is Patron of the Magna Carta Trust, will attend an official ceremony at Runnymede on Monday to commemorate the anniversary. So will other members of the royal family, including her grandson, Prince William, who is second in line for the throne.

A new art installation will be opened and the American Bar Association’s Magna Carta Memorial, which was erected in 1957, will be re-dedicated.

The Magna Carta came into being during a period of great political upheaval in England. Conflict had erupted among King John, his nobles and the English church.

In essence a peace deal, it was sealed by John on June 19, 1215, following five days of negotiation with his barons. The most famous and significant of its clauses were 39 and 40, which stated that not even the monarch was above the law.

“LAW OF THE LAND”

They read:No free man shall be seized or imprisoned, or stripped of his rights or possessions, or outlawed or exiled, or deprived of his standing in any way, nor will we proceed with force against him, or send others to do so, except by the lawful judgement of his equals or by the law of the land.

To no one will we sell, to no one deny or delay right or justice.

#AceNewsReport – LONDON:June.11: An employment tribunal in West London has ruled in favour of a nursery worker who was fired after she responded to a co-worker’s questions about her church.

The report comes from the Christian Legal Center, an organization that concerns itself with issues of abortion, employment, same-sex “marriage,” religious freedom and Islam, among other controversial topics.

“In a brave judgment, the Watford Employment Tribunal chaired by Judge Broughton, found unanimously that Miss (Sarah) Mbuyi had been directly discriminated against because of her belief that homosexual practice is contrary to the Bible,” the report said.

#BREAKING144 ‘ Chancellor Announces Sell-Off/Out of RBS Taxpayers Stake ‘

#AceBreakingNews – Post Update:June.10: The government plans to sell its stake in the Royal Bank of Scotland, Chancellor George Osborne has announced in his annual Mansion House speech.

Mr Osborne said the “decision point” had been reached.

He received advice from Governor of the Bank of England Mark Carney and a review by investment bank Rothschild.

 Mr Carney said a phased sell-off “would promote financial stability, a more competitive banking sector and the interests of the wider economy.”

The government provided a £45.5bn bailout in 2008, paying around 500p a share. The share price currently stands at 354.8p.

The Chancellor argued that the sale must be seen as a whole and the share price will increase in subsequent offerings as confidence grows.

Mr Osborne said: “It’s the right thing to do for British businesses and British taxpayers. Yes, we may get a lower price than Labour paid for it. But the longer we wait the higher the price the whole economy will pay.”

The review from Rothschild said that, despite this price gap, taxpayers can expect to make £14bn more than it paid out if the sale of bank assets and fees already received are taken into account.

BRITAIN: Osborne Set to sell-off RBS & the loss to taxpayers this time – around £14-billion – Reports ‘

#AceNewsReport – Featured Report:June.10: According to reports a decision to be announced at the Mansion House was being made to sell-off, RBS that the UK taxpayer took a huge stake in back in 2008.

This was of course after bankers risked all on sub-prime mortgage market in the USA. Now the time has come to sell-off the stake. As with Lloyds and TSB banks. Of course the institutional investors will get lions share. These are amongst the ones that helped put us in the global crisis in the first place, including Wall Street bankers.

Anyway this time it will be a loss to the taxpayer of £14-billion. This of course is a drop in the ocean said one investment CEO today to the BBC almost justifying grand larceny under the guise of good business.

Today this was Reuters take by two writers on our chancellors deficit credentials, see what you think and let me know?

#BREAKING REPORT: ‘ US plans to deploy missiles in Europe ‘

#AceBreakingNews – June.08: Reports of US plans to deploy missiles in Europe hardly promote the balance of interests on the continent and mutual trust, President Vladimir Putin’s press spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

“Certain actions aimed at escalating tensions, of course, will not be in anyone’s interests,” Peskov said. “For sure, this issue itself hardly promotes mutual trust and the balance of interests on the European continent.”He added: “On the other hand, we do not have any concrete information.”

The statement was made after British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said the UK would consider hosting US nuclear missiles amid escalating tensions between Russia and the West.

LONDON: ‘ COUNTER TERRORISM POLICE DETAIN FOUR MEN OVER ALLEGED TERRORIST PLOT ‘

#AceNewsServices – LONDON – Nov.07 – Police investigating an alleged Islamist terrorism plot targeting the UK have arrested four men.

Counter-terrorism police detained the men in London and High Wycombe.

The men, aged between 19 and 27, were all taken to police stations in central London after their arrests overnight and remain in custody.

Police said one of the men was arrested in a west London street, with armed officers assisting, but no shots were fired.

The men were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.

There is no current indication of a link to Syria or the activities of jihadist group Islamic State, BBC home affairs correspondent Danny Shaw said.

The Metropolitan Police said a number of homes and vehicles in west London and the Thames Valley area were being searched by specialist officers as part of the investigation.

In a statement, the force said the arrests and searches were “part of an ongoing investigation into Islamist related terrorism”.

Officers from the Met’s SO15 counter terrorism command are working with the south east counter terrorism unit and MI5.

The arrests – one of which was in High Wycombe and the other three in west London – come after the UK national terror threat level was raised from “substantial” to “severe” in August.

This means a terrorist attack is considered “highly likely”.
