REVEALED: Iran Hacks 9,000 UK Parliament E-mails As Govt Opposes Trump Decertification of Iran Deal


The British government faces accusations of failing to represent the country’s national interests as it was revealed overnight that a cyber attack launched against parliamentary e-mails, previously blamed on Russia, actually came from the Iranian regime. Around 9,000 parliamentary e-mails were affected by the breach, with the news coming out on the same day the UK government doubled down on its support for the Iran deal that U.S. President Donald J. Trump refused to certify. The “brute force” attack, reported overnight by The Times of London, is believed to include e-mail from Theresa May’s office as well as those of other Cabinet members. At they same time, the British government alongside its European Union partners pushed back against President Trump’s decision not to recertify President Barack Obama’s Iran deal. Immediately after the U.S. government declared they could not and would not “make this certification”, EU and UK sources began major spin operations in Iran’s favor. Britain’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) stated: “Our governments are committed to ensuring the [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action to Congress] is maintained” and their social media feeds began blasting out pro Iran deal statements: The Iran Deal neutralises their nuclear programme pic.twitter.com/yaYDosFwMB — Foreign Office

UK PM May Dings Trump at U.N. General Assembly: Backs Paris Agreement, Lectures on Refugees


Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May used her United Nations General Assembly speech today to rail against President Trump, and indeed the same values and ideas that propelled the British public to vote for Brexit in 2016. In typically bizarre and philosophically bunk form, Mrs. May proved again why she is scarcely the leader to take Britain into a post-Brexit world, and indeed why she has no business leading the Conservative Party. Just days after the terror-linked arrests of refugees from across the Muslim world in her own country, she lectured on immigration, potentially alienating Britain’s best ally in a post-Brexit world: President Trump and the U.S. government: Many [migrants] are refugees fleeing conflict and persecution. Others, economic migrants, prepared to risk everything on perilous sea crossings in the desperate search for a better life for themselves and their children. Through this migration we also see the challenges of economic inequality between countries and within them… Sharper words — extolling the virtues of liberalism and neoliberal extremism which were roundly rejected by Britain and America in 2016 — were saved for a thinly veiled attack on the U.S. administration: This inequality, together with weaknesses in the global trading system, threatens to undermine
