The Home Office is refusing to reveal how many detainees have been sexually assaulted or raped inside Yarl’s Wood Immigration Removal Centre in Bedfordshire in case the information becoming public knowledge harms the “commercial interests” of private companies that are involved in running it.

We also take a look at an archive story from 2013 that gives an horrific example of how private government funded prisons are treating vulnerable people.

Physiological effects have been observed in a human subject in response to stimulation of the skin with weak electromagnetic fields that are pulsed with certain frequencies near ½ Hz or 2.4 Hz, such as to excite a sensory resonance. Many computer monitors and TV tubes, when displaying pulsed images, emit pulsed electromagnetic fields of sufficient amplitudes to cause such excitation. It is therefore possible to manipulate the nervous system of a subject by pulsing images displayed on a nearby computer monitor or TV set. For the latter, the image pulsing may be imbedded in the program material, or it may be overlaid by modulating a video stream, either as an RF signal or as a video signal. The image displayed on a computer monitor may be pulsed effectively by a simple computer program. For certain monitors, pulsed electromagnetic fields capable of exciting sensory resonances in nearby subjects may be generated even as the displayed images are pulsed with subliminal intensity.

theresa-may-article-50-729543Theresa May, currently in India to secure vital post-Brexit trade deal, appears to be drawing-up a rough copy of Article 50 in a bid to speed up Britain’s EU exit.

It means the proposals could be put before parliament sooner than first thought, setting the Brexit wheels into motion.

The UK voted for British withdrawal from the EU in the June 2016 referendum. In October 2016 the prime minister, Theresa May, promised a “Great Repeal Bill” which would repeal the 1972 act and import its regulations into UK law, with effect from the date of British withdrawal. The regulations could then be amended or repealed on a case-by-case basis.[7]

In R (Miller) v Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, the High Court held that under the act, the government did not have the power to trigger the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union using the royal prerogative. Through passing the European Communities Act, Parliament had made European Union law part of UK law, which could be undone only by the action of Parliament, under the principle of Parliamentary sovereignty.
