1. Multiculturalism has failed, say Bradford residents
Nine in ten people say Bradford is divided, in a nod to the city’s failed multiculturalism experiment, according to a new poll in a local newspaper.
The eye-opening survey comes as city councillors said “Asian youths” had attacked pubs owned by white business owners in November and more generally intimidated women from visiting the town centre after dark to enjoy the night time economy. The council chamber heard further claims that armed police had been required at a recent Jewish community event amid a “huge increase” in anti-Semitism and that people had been caught “goose-stepping” outside a centre for asylum seekers in Keighley.
A report on the story, appearing in both The Telegraph & Argus and Asian Image, asked readers: ‘Do you think Bradford is a divided district?’ to which a whopping 89 per cent answered ‘yes’ in a poll of almost 2,300 people. Latest census information published in June 2017 revealed that Bradford is home to the largest Pakistani population in England (20.3 per cent) with a quarter of the population (24.7 per cent) identifying as Muslim.

4. "Accept the Will of the People on Migration, Culture, or Hit the Road": Orbán Tells Europe’s Leaders
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said that Europeans are “asserting their will” by supporting leaders who reject mass migration and support Christian foundations, and gave a warning to politicians who deny the “natural order of democracy”.
The conservative Fidesz party leader told Kossuth Radio’s listeners that 2.3 million Hungarians took part in the national consultation against the George Soros-backed pro-mass migration plan, and Mr. Orbán now intends to spend the next few months convincing his opponents that Europe is right to protect her borders and her culture.
Asked by the 180 Minutes host what made him think that after two years, since the migrant crisis, progressive leaders would listen now, Mr. Orbán said: “Because in the meantime elections are being held in Europe.”
5. Forgotten in hell: Half of abducted Iraqi Yazidi girls remain in ISIS captivity & sex slavery
15yo Nadi could barely speak when RT crew met her just a few hours after she was bought out after years of slavery for $2,500 – not the highest ransom by far, as ISIS terrorists fetch $10,000 on average for young Yazidi girls.
Nadi is one of thousands of Yazidi girls, captured and then enslaved by Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) terrorists who would turn the girls – often no older than 10 years – into forced laborers, sex slaves, and send them on suicide missions. With the self-proclaimed IS caliphate crumbling, the slave trade has become a source of income for the retreating militants in need of money to flee the battlefield and resettle in nearby countries.
