Britain’s new anti-extremism chief has expressed concern that Hizb ut-Tahrir, an Islamist group which seeks to establish a caliphate with Sharia law, could be “radicalising children” after an investigation found them using children to peddle extremist literature. Banned in more than a dozen countries including Pakistan, Russia, China, Turkey, and Egypt, Hizb ut-Tahrir publicly disavows violence, but individuals linked with the group have carried out violent acts, such as Islamic State fighter ‘Jihadi John’, who reportedly attended the outfit’s events while at university.Hizb ut-Tahrir has complained that British authorities have effectively “criminalised” certain “key concepts of Islam”, while Abdul Wahid, a leading figure in Britain, has called for a boycott of Britain’s counter-terror programme Prevent. Despite their insistence they only allow over-16s to “engage” in their work, an undercover … [Read more...] about UK: ‘Supremacist’ Islamist Group Using Children to Distribute Extremist Books

POSING with a tiger on his Instagram page Feezan “Fizzy” Choudhary enjoyed the high-life while scamming £113million from 750 hapless victims. Choudhary was Britain’s biggest ever bank transfer fraudster and his case provides an insight into the alarming rise of financial scammers in the UK. Earlier this week it was revealed online bank transfer fraud has rocketed – with customers tricked out of almost £1m per day by scammers.

A MUM-of-three feared she would be homeless and living on the streets after allegedly being told her benefits would stop when she dropped out of uni. Lilyth Coglan is classed as a "suspended student" and entitled to benefits, but claims Hull City Council sent her letters saying they believe she is still in education so can't claim benefits. The 23-year-old had to stop her degree at the University of Hull after pregnancy complications and a traumatic birth.
