British immigration authorities are demanding businessman Roman Abramovich "prove" the legitimacy of his wealth (archived). Abramovich has numerous business ties to the United Kingdom developed over the years including his personal ownership of the Chelsea football club. For years Abramovich has held a "Tier 1" investors visa, but is latest renewal application is being held up pending a new and invasive AML/KYC demonstration of the money's "legitimacy", in the eyes of the government ruling for the crown.
Frontline rural police in Britain are likely to be routinely armed in the near future after an effort to recruit "specialist counter terrorist firearms officers" has failed (archived). When rural British police call for armed support, the current British SOP calls for "Armed response vehicles" with 13 "specialist firearms officers" to make their way to the scene.
Today in the South London district of Brixton a woman was sprayed with corrosive liquid on a crowded bus and later doused nude, with water, by firefighters in the street (archived). Meanwhile on Sunday three men were injured in a single East London acid attack (archived). Unknown in England before the 21st century, corrosive liquid assaults are swiftly becoming one of the most dominant kinds of assault on the Airstrip.
Thirty attendees were injured in London during a bonfire celebrating the Jewish holiday of Lag BaOmer. One of the tribal elders reportedly threw smartphones containing lithium ion batteries into the fire as a warning against their "evils" shortly before an explosion erupted from the fire causing 10 injuries with a further 20 injuries coming in the stampede that followed. The tribal elder apparently neglected to heed warnings about the evil within phone batteries triggered by immersion in fire.
Overnight the US, Airstrip One, and France launched missile strikes against Syria which were condemned by both the Russians and Chinese. Out of 103 missiles launched, 71 were reportedly intercepted leaving 32 to strike targets. This move comes 373 days after Trump last directed US cruise missiles towards a Syrian airbase's pussy. Syria and Russia are reporting that this attack was "absorbed" with personel having been withdrawn from the target sites days in advance while the US insists no warning of the attack was offered.
Stabbings in London have taken Airstrip One's capital past New York and on towards Detroit as murder rises the city (archived). The British response to the surge in violence has been to consider banning businesses from delivering knives to residencial addresses and charging a man who defended himself during a break in with murder because his assailant happened to have died after being repelled in a successful defense of the residence (archived). The murder charges are likely an effort to boost the murder conviction rate because that man defending his home was one of the few the police could identify as having stabbed another person.
Between increasing domestic challenges and pending fallout from inciting international aggression beyond their station, Britain continues to become more like Somalia than any historical Britain since the advent of sail.
Today Airstrip One's Porton Down defense laboratory admits it has no evidence to support loud Pantsuit allegations that the nerve agent used to poison a British double-agent came from Russia (archived). This news comes despite the government of the not so United Kingdom using the incident to blow up relations with Russia while fishing for solidarity with the continental Europeans whose Union the Brits will be leaving.
Despite the usual pantsuit media organs insisting Russia must have done it, the ready baked pantsuit public relations campaign accompanying the incident lacks an innocent look on its surface.
As part of the ongoing cleaving initiated by the Brexit process, the European Union is moving to cancel all .eu domain names with registrants based in Airstrip One. How future departures will be handled is uncertain at this time.
The Embassy of Ecuador in London has cut off communications between Julian Assange and the outside world following pressure from NATO member states. Recently the sublethal poisoning of a British Spy in London with a common nerve agent has been used as a pretext for the United Kingdom to pressure its allies into isolating Russia and other percieved enemies. The full text of Ecuador's announcement is below:

EL GOBIERNO DE ECUADOR SUSPENDE LAS COMUNICACIONES DE JULIAN ASSANGE
El Gobierno de Ecuador suspendió de los sistemas que permiten a Julian Assange comunicarse con el exterior desde la embajada ecuatoriana en Londres, en donde el ciudadano permanece en situación de protección internacional desde hace seis años debido al riesgo que corre su vida e integridad.
La medida fue adoptada ante el incumplimiento por parte de Assange del compromiso escrito que asumió con el Gobierno a finales de 2017, por el que se obligaba a no emitir mensajes que supusieran una injerencia en relación a otros Estados.
El Gobierno de Ecuador advierte de que el comportamiento de Assange, con sus mensajes a través de las redes sociales, pone en riesgo las buenas relaciones que el país mantiene con Reino Unido, con el resto de los Estados de la Unión Europea y otras naciones. Por todo ello, para prevenir potenciales perjuicios, la embajada en Londres interrumpió este 27 de marzo las comunicaciones al exterior a las que tiene acceso Assange.
El Ejecutivo mantiene además abiena la vía a la adopción de nuevas medidas ante el incumplimiento del compromiso por parte de Assange.
Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen, leaders of the British Nationalist dissident group "Britain First" have been sentenced to spend 18 and 36 weeks respectively incarcerated for "anti-religious" hate crimes. The two were accused of spreading "hostility towards muslims" for bringing publicity to a "gang rape" trial. The kangaroo court further alleged the two engaged in abusive behavior towards circus bureacrats during their own trial.
