Revealed: Queen's private estate invested millions of pounds offshore

Paradise Papers leak reveals Duchy of Lancaster put money into retailer criticised for exploiting poor families

Sunday 5 November 2017 Last modified on Sunday 5 November 2017

Millions of pounds from the Queen’s private estate has been invested in a Cayman Islands fund as part of an offshore portfolio that has never before been disclosed, according to documents revealed in an investigation into offshore tax havens.

Files from a substantial leak show for the first time how the Queen, through the Duchy of Lancaster, has held and still holds investments via funds that have put money into an array of businesses, including the off-licence chain Threshers, and the retailer BrightHouse, which has been criticised for exploiting thousands of poor families and vulnerable people.

The duchy admitted it had no idea about its 12-year investment in BrightHouse until approached by the Guardian and other partners in an international project called the Paradise Papers.

State Funded Faith School Unfit to Teach, Say Secularists

national secular society, faith school, gender segregation, jewish, orthodox

The National Secular Society calls for an investigation into a faith school that insists the universe is 5778 years old and engages in gender segregation.

The National Secular Society has urged the government to investigate a faith school that insists the universe is 5778 years old and forbids men and women from shaking hands.

Beis Yaakov Primary School, a state-funded faith school for girls ‘from strictly orthodox Jewish families’ in Barnet, has prompted concern from the NSS due to its educational policies and codes of conduct.

According to the voluntary aided school’s visitor’s guide, creationism is taught as fact, evolution is not discussed, and pupils are taught that ‘the age of the universe is accepted as 5778 years old.’

The visitor’s guide explains, ‘Parents choose this school because our ethos closely mirrors the values and life styles of their homes.

‘The society in which our girls live is a very protected one. They do not watch television and many do not have access to national newspapers or libraries. Pop culture is unknown and exposure to other religious experiences very limited.’

For this reason, ‘all references to TV programmes and the Internet should be avoided.’

Muslim advocacy group accused of promoting Islamism

Posted: Thu, 02 Nov 2017 16:34

A Muslim advocacy group which works closely with police forces, politicians and councils has been accused of promoting Islamist views.

Mend (Muslim Engagement and Development) was described as a group of "Islamists masquerading as civil libertarians" in a report from the Henry Jackson Society (HJS) think tank this week.

Former Archbishop of Canterbury criticises Church establishment

Posted: Wed, 01 Nov 2017 15:51

Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, has appeared to agree in principle with disestablishing the Church of England.

"I've often thought of the establishment of the Church of England: I wouldn't start from here," he said on Tuesday. "It reflects a slightly odd 16th-century view of the absolute inseparability of the Church and the state, which is realistically not where we are now."

Man pleads guilty to Grenfell fire fraud 

A man who got £12,500 after claiming his wife and son had died in the Grenfell fire has pleaded guilty to fraud.

Anh Nhu Nguyen was given money, clothing, food, electrical items and a hotel room after pretending to be a survivor of the blaze.

He was given around £12,500 in money and possessions from charities and the local council - but actually lived miles away in southeast London.

The 52-year-old - who has 28 previous convictions - was pictured near Prince Charles when he visited a memorial wall near the tower in the weeks after the fire.

Nguyen told the media - including Sky News - that he had escaped from the 15th floor with his 12-year-old son and wife.

He said the fire had destroyed "everything" he owned and appeared distressed as he described escaping from the tower and the deaths of his loved ones
