1. At Last: Tory Housing Minister Admits Mass Migration Has Pushed House Prices Up 20 Per Cent
Mass migration has pushed up house prices by 20 per cent, the housing minister has confirmed, admitting the link between open borders and soaring property prices.
Data from the Ministry of Housing, Communities, and Local Government (MHCLG) drawn from Office of National Statistics (ONS) data shows that house prices have risen by a fifth over the past 25 years as a result of immigration, said Dominic Raab.
While Prime Minister Theresa May has spoken only of a need to boost housebuilding on the topic of Britain’s housing crisis, Raab confessed that the Government also deal with demand when drawing up rules for post-Brexit border control.
“You can’t have housing taken out of the debate around immigration,” he told the Sunday Times. “If we delivered on the Government’s target of reducing immigration to the tens of thousands every year, that would have a material impact on the number of homes we need to build every year.”

5. Orban wins MASSIVE majority victory in Hungary
Orban's Fidesz Party represented in orange:
The New York Times offers their slant on the victory: Hungary Election Gives Orban Big Majority, and Control of Constitution
BUDAPEST, Hungary — Prime Minister Viktor Orban of Hungary, who has set about transforming this former Soviet bloc member from a vibrant democracy into a semi-autocratic state under one political party’s control, appeared to have won a sweeping victory in national elections on Sunday, with 93 percent of the vote counted.
By securing two-thirds of the seats in Parliament, Mr. Orban’s Fidesz party — along with its ally, the Christian Democrats —— now has the power to change the Constitution and further bend the nation to his will.
6. Proposal to separate men and women on public transport sparks heavy criticism
The Islam Party is proposing to separate men and women on public transport services. The Brussels State Secretary for Equal Opportunities Bianca Debaets is investigating whether it's possible to take the matter to court. Other Flemish politicians are also discarding the idea.
Belgium is having local elections on 14 October. The campaigns are underway in most places now, like in Brussels. The Islam Party is campaigning in 28 municipalities in Brussels and Wallonia - not in Flanders so far, but they are thinking about Antwerp. The party wants to go for an Islamic state according to the sharia.
“But this doesn't mean, for example, that we want to oblige headscarves”, the Anderlecht alderman Redouane Ahrouch told Het Nieuwsblad. He adds that “we don't want to go against the Belgian Constitution. For us, it's about the values of our religion.” The Islam Party had two people elected in the previous elections, one in Anderlecht and one in Molenbeek.
One of the party's proposals is to separate men and women on public transport, but also that each list of candidates should be headed by a man. “The idea that a woman can be top of a list, is beyond comprehension to me. Unless we really don't have an alternative”, Ahrouch told La Dernière Heure. Ahrouch, a bus driver, said the public transport proposal was made because he often hears women complain about physical harassment.

10. The smiling terrorist: Moroccan man who killed two women in stabbing frenzy in Finland last year goes on trial as his wheelchair-bound British victim watches on
The Moroccan man who killed two people and injured eight in a frenzied stabbing attack in Turku, Finland, was seen smiling in the dock as his trial began today.
Abderrahman Bouanane, 23, has confessed to carrying out the attack in August last year shortly after his arrest, and has told police he sees it as an act of terror.
If Bouanane is convicted, he will be the first person to be found guilty of acts of terror in Finnish history.
Prosecutor Hannu Koistinen claims that Bouanane's action went beyond a random act of terrorism and that he is an ISIS supporter.
“Bouanane has seen his action as an expression of support for the Islamic State's operation and their ideology,” Koistinen said today according to Vasabladet.
