British businesses “quietly sorry” economy didn’t take a hit, because it emboldens the no-deal Brexiteers
So, basically, the economists who predicted mayhem are disappointed that it didn’t happen as it obstructs their political ideals, now predict a “slow strangling of the economy” that they seem to find objectionable, because it will not help them stop, or reverse, Brexit.
Belgian train evacuated after “foreign origin youths” repeatedly pull emergency brakes. Driver recalls violent event
“We have been humiliated, insulted, threatened, physically assaulted, (…) verbally abused, prevented from doing our job (…). We tried to do our best to inform everybody as best we could during this, that’s what I call it anyway, hostage situation. (…) What sort of society have we been lead in?”
Leaked recording by German Police trainer: ‘Immigrant recruits are hateful and violent, they are the enemy’
German news agency WELT N24 on 1 November reported on an anonymous audio recording, causing an uproar within the Berlin police force.

Highly biased report by Soros’ Open Society and Amnesty concludes Dutch Jihadist are detained in ‘Inhumane Ways’
The Dutch section of Amnesty International, in co-operation with George Soros’ Open Society Justice Initiative published a report (PDF) on 31 October, about the detention of those suspected of, or convicted of terrorism in the Netherlands. As usual, Amnesty International claims that Human Rights were violated, without specifying which.

Swedish obligation to shelter migrants causes housing crisis, municipalities must house 100.000 migrants next year
In the South-Swedish province of Blekinge, the situation – which is illustrative for that in Sweden – is bleak. There is a serious shortage of housing in all categories, even though municipal and provincial governments are trying to mobilising the construction industry to solve the problem. Their activities are not enough though, as a housing market survey ordered by the provincial government, and executed by the Swedish National Housing Board shows.
In run-up to Halloween, ESA jokes about “spooky sight” in space. Sense of humour aside, the view is spectacular
The star that pierces through the ‘fog’ is V380 Orionis, a bright, young star, JUST LIKE YOU. It is 3.5 times the mass, and with its surface temperature of about 10 000ºC, two times as hot as our Sun. Literally white hot. So young it is still surrounded by a cloud of material left over from its formation.
Former German Police Officer: ‘Politicians endanger us, we should hit the Gym and Boxing Ring to win back Streets’
“Just to make sure there is no misunderstanding: this is no plea for police violence. But when confronted with such a brutal attack, a robust defence is called for. Because his defence counsel, paid by the hapless taxpayer, will try and turn the real perpetrator into a victim anyway.”
Awkward stuff. Israeli Judoka wins tournament in Abu Dhabi, which refuses to show Israeli flag / play Israeli anthem
That turned awkward rather quick when Flicker won gold, and it made for some quite poetic footage. Flicker remained calm and collected and whispered his country’s Hatikvah, while the organisation played the International Judo Federation’s song [which apparently exists for these occasions] while Flicker was honoured under the International Judo Federation’s flag instead of the Israeli flag.
