Devastating MORI poll shows Europe's peoples share British rage over EU

The MORI poll shows that 58pc of the French also want their own referendum, and 41pc say they would vote to leave. Swexit sentiment in Sweden is running at 39pc.

But what most surprised me is that half of those surveyed in countries making up 80pc of the EU population think that Brexit would set off a domino effect, and that it would do more damage to the European Union than to Britain itself.

Specifically, 51pc said Brexit would have a negative impact on the EU economy, compared to just 36pc who thought it would be bad for Britain’s economy. This really is an upset.

...

A majority in Italy, Poland, the US, India, and South Africa actually thought the British economy would fare better once it broke free from the EU. This too is a shocker.

City Of London’s Dog & Pony Show (AKA Anti-Corruption Conference)

The Anti-Corruption Conference being held in London this week has gotten off to a rocky start. Sometimes that happens when the pot tries to call the kettle black.

The City of London – with its lax financial regulations and running a network of offshore tax havens that spans from Vanuatu to Liechtenstein to the Cayman Islands to the Isle of Man – is the nexus of the dirty money that greases the drugs for guns for oil scam.

Stinging from the Panama Papers release, the Rothschild/Windsor inbreds thought they’d try to fool the world again by having their boy David Cameron play host to an “anti-corruption conference”.

Iain Duncan Smith, the former Work and Pensions Secretary, has launched an extraordinary attack on his own government's Treasury.

“The worst thing we have in Britain is the Treasury,” he said.

The Treasury dominated Government decision-making but was characterised by a "lack of vision" and a "short-term" obsession with cutsm he added.

Mr Duncan Smith also complained that other ministers have to "fight at all stages" with the Treasury over policy.

He said he gave a "sigh of relief" when he left government because he would "never have to deal with those people again".

Crumbs! EU to launch kettle and toaster crackdown after referendum

EU officials admit the plan has brought them ridicule and UKIP Scotland’s David Coburn has attacked them for supposedly ruining his breakfast.

The idea was thought to have been shelved at the end of February over fears it will drive the UK towards Brexit, but instead it has just been pushed back until after the referendum on June 23.

American musicians are ‘scared sh*tless’ their careers ‘will be destroyed’ if they speak up for Palestinians — Roger Waters

For years now we have admired Roger Waters’s moral courage, his refusal to back down from his criticism of Israel even if his career is torched by his witness. And I have heard rumors of that career-blackmail being levied at the legendary musician who never met his father or grandfather (because they died freeing Europe) and who burst into rock and roll fame without even wanting that when he was in his early 20s because he was political before he was musical.

Those rumors are confirmed; now this committed soul has burst out in the English press with a description of the vicious smears the Israel lobby has used against him, which he has overcome, in an effort to get others to join him in speaking out against Israeli apartheid. Pointing out that British musicians have supported BDS– Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign– Waters says that American artists are “scared shitless” against such actions because their careers “will be destroyed.” But we need them desperately, as we did in Vietnam days.

Prison governors are to be given more autonomy over budgets and the deployment of staff.

Proof Positive that David Cameron, the BBC, Guardian, New Statesman and Entire Establishment are Peddling Blatant Untruths in the Kuenssberg Affair

FYI Kuenssberg petition is a petition to sack Tory propagandist Laura Kuenssberg from her role as BBC Political Editor

Here are all the comments on the scrapped Kuenssberg petition. You know, the petition David Cameron condemned in the House of Commons today because it was accompanied by a storm of sexist abuse? Well, here are the comments in their entirety and out of 35,000 people who signed, there is virtually nobody whose comment can be seen as remotely sexist. See for yourselves. Can you spot the one sexist comment I found?

The comments show the petition was overwhelmingly signed by decent, concerned people who were sometimes quite eloquent. Also that the petition supporters are gender balanced and several specifically identify as feminists, and as supporters of the BBC. But neither Cameron, the Guardian and mainstream media nor 38 Degrees itself has any qualm about writing off all these decent citizens as a misogynist rabble.

Speaking at the British Museum Monday, the Conservative Party leader set out what he described as a “big, bold patriotic case” for voters supporting continued UK membership of the EU in the June 23 referendum. While claiming to “respect” their views, he made a bellicose attack on supporters of a Brexit (British exit)—especially those within his own party—for endangering not only Britain’s “national interest” but the future of NATO and the security of the West.

Spain-UK Dispute Over Gibraltar Flares Up After Warning Shots Incident With US Nuclear Sub

In mid-April, a British fast-patrol boat, the HMS Sabre, fired warning flares across the bow of a Spanish Guardia Civil (think Coast Guard) ship. The Spanish vessel had twice cut across the bow of a visiting US nuclear submarine, the USS Florida, when the escorting British patrol boat decided enough was enough, screwing with a visiting US warship was uncalled for, and shot a few flares high and inside to brush the Spanish off.

The port of Gibraltar is a frequent stop for US submarines in need of a little maintenance work. The Florida itself sailed into Gibraltar on April 16 — and was intercepted by a Spanish vessel, resulting in the firing of warning flares. The Florida got similar treatment from Spanish customs boats as well, an encounter that also ended in the firing of warning flares. Earlier this year, Britain filed a formal protest with Spain over incursions by Spanish warships that reportedly risked the safety of a British vessel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What about the Gibraltarians themselves?!?

I mean, isn't the UN all about peaceful self-determination?!?

The logical thing to do would be to hold a referendum, asking the people who live there if they wish to live as British or Spanish citizens; however, unfortunately, logic many times has very little to do with how these decisions are made.

But it is painfully apparent that both countries need to ratchet down the tensions here; otherwise, we are looking at a potential "mini-war" as we saw in the Falkland Islands some years back.

FLASHBACK 2013 - The betrayal of Dr David Kelly, 10 years on

Even now, almost precisely 10 years since David Kelly’s last journey, we are still learning just how extraordinary and inexcusable the behaviour of our rulers was – both towards him, and in the wider cause, defending the Iraq war, for which he was outed and died. On July 18 2003, I did not consider myself a shockable person; I was an experienced, sceptical journalist with, I thought, a realistic idea of how politicians, intelligence officers and civil servants behaved. But over the months and years that followed, my views, and those of most of the country, changed. To borrow the famous words of David Astor over Suez, we had not realised that our government was capable of such folly and such crookedness.

'Brexit' could trigger World War Three, warns David Cameron

David Cameron has pleaded for Britain to stay in the EU to help prevent the Continent being ripped apart by another conflict.

Mr Cameron today highlighted the UK’s role in bringing peace to Europe as he hit the referendum campaign trail - just hours before a rival speech by rival Tory MP Boris Johnson.

Introduced by Labour ex-Foreign Secretary David Miliband at the British Museum in London, he said: "Can we be so sure peace and stability on our continent are assured beyond any shadow of doubt? Is that a risk worth taking?

"I would never be so rash to make that assumption."

But he was attacked hours later by Brexit-backing Mr Johnson, who said: "People should think very hard before they make these kinds of warnings.

Claims tax havens ‘distorting’ global economy, and Britain controls one-third of them

Tax havens “serve no useful economic purpose,” a group of 300 leading economists has said in a letter urging world leaders to bolster financial transparency ahead of London’s anti-corruption summit this week.

The letter, coordinated by Oxfam, suggests the UK is “uniquely placed” to reduce global corruption because it has sovereignty over a third of the world’s tax havens.

Project Fear in full force: Now Cameron warns of Russia threat & WAR if Britain leaves EU

Veterans turn on the PM for using Second World War soldiers in his bid to keep Britain in the EU

VETERANS have turned on the Prime Minister for including Second World War heroes in a ‘scaremongering’ video to try and convince Britain to stay in the EU.

Major-General Julian Thompson, who led British forces in the recapture of Port Stanley in the Falklands capital, told Mail Online: “I respect them hugely, they’re the guys who bought our freedom, they fought for us and we should respect what they think, but I'm afraid they’re wrong because the world’s moved on.”

And he blasted the PM: “I think Cameron is wrong to put around this scaremongering.

“He talks about isolationism [but] Britain was not isolationist before the Second World War – we joined a French and Russian alliance and fought the Germans and we joined it 10 years before the First World War started.

“I’m afraid Cameron has forgotten his history or was fast asleep getting his history lessons.”

He also warned that the over-the-top 'scare stories' from Mr Cameron and Remain supporters risked harming the UK.

Backing 'Brexit,' A Salmon Smokehouse Says It's Been Swimming Upstream

"I travel to Europe, I have very good friends across Europe," Forman says. "That's not what this is about. It's about the organization, which has become too powerful, undemocratic and corrupt, in fact, in many cases. It just needs to go."

He's had to comply with EU regulations that he calls ridiculous. For example, he says he spent thousands of dollars last year on EU-compliant packaging — to label his smoked salmon as containing fish, for people who have allergies. And he says he wasn't allowed to extend his new factory wing to the edge of a nearby canal because EU rules required him to leave space for certain insects and other wildlife that mate in those wetlands.

“I would say the UK are better off without [the EU] personally, but I’m not making that as a recommendation, just my feeling,” he told the news channel.

Adding that he has a lot of investment in the UK, Trump then said he wants British voters “to make their own decision.”

TTIP—American Economic Imperialism by Paul Craig Roberts

These so-called “free trade agreements” are not trade agreements. The purpose of the “partnerships,” which were drafted by global corporations, is to make corporations immune to the laws of soverign countries in which they do business. Any country’s sovereign law whether social, environmental, food safety, labor protections—any law or regulation—that impacts a corporation’s profits is labeled a “restraint on trade.” The “partnerships” permit corporations to file a suit that overturns the law or regulation and also awards the corporation damages paid by the taxpayers of the country that tried to protect its environment or the safety of its food and workers.

The law suit is not heard in the courts of the country or in any court. It is heard in a corporate tribunal in which corporations serve as judge, jury, and prosecutor.

In other words, the “partnerships” give global corporations the power to overturn democratic outcomes. Allegedly, Europe consists of democracies. Democracies pass laws protecting the environment and the safety of food and labor, but these laws democratically enacted reduce profits. Anything less than a sweatshop, with starvation wages, no environmental protection, no safety legislation for food or worker, can be overturned at will by global corporations under the terms of the “partnerships.”

Only a traitor, a well paid one, could sign such a pact.

Zionism Should be on Trial, Not Ken Livingstone

In taking things this far, however, in subjecting Ken Livingstone to trial-by-media over his comments on Zionism, his detractors have also unwittingly placed Zionism itself on trial, with the question of Zionism, as mentioned, undoubtedly now being pondered by millions of people who previously would have had zero interest in the subject. And what most of those people will inarguably find if they delve deep enough into that question, despite the determined efforts of Israel’s supporters to conflate Zionism with Judaism, is that this is a political doctrine and ideology responsible for crimes against humanity on a grand scale.

The EU exists only to become a superstate. Britain has no place in it

For Britain, the issue in the coming European referendum is not Europe, with its great history, incomparable culture, and diverse peoples, but the European Union.

To confuse the two is both geographically and historically obtuse. European civilisation existed long before the coming of the EU, and will continue long after this episode in Europe’s history is, hopefully, over.
***
“But,” comes the inevitable question, “what is your alternative to membership of the EU?” A more absurd question it would be hard to envisage.

The alternative to being in the EU is not being in the EU. And it may come as a shock to the little Europeans that most of the world is not in the EU – and that most of these countries are doing better economically than most of the EU.

Fighting Back for the Right to Support Palestine

Last week, Israel bulldozed twelve Palestinian homes in Area C of the illegally occupied West Bank to make way for new illegal settlement building, while two Palestinian minors were killed by the Israeli Defence Forces.

This makes it a totally unexceptional week for the Palestinians. It has not however been an unexceptional week for Palestinian supporters in the UK, who have suffered the most vicious coordinated media witch hunt in memory. Two things are happening. The Blairites are trying to engineer a coup against Corbyn by sabotaging Labour in forthcoming elections, while the Israeli lobby seek to discredit all supporters of the Palestinians as anti-semites, including people like me who have no connection to the Labour Party.

The Electronic Intifada can reveal that a key player in Labour’s “anti-Semitism crisis” covered up his involvement in the Israel lobby.

Most Labour members so accused are in reality being attacked for expressing opinions in favor of Palestinian human rights and particularly for supporting the boycott of Israel.

Leftists tend to call each other comrade; they shove the word ‘comradeship’ into every political statement. Apparently, they are unable to grasp what comradeship is all about.

TTIP could cause an NHS sell-off and UK Parliament would be powerless to stop it, says leading union

The UK Parliament may not have the power to stop or reverse the privatisation of the NHS if the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership passed at EU level, Unite has warned.

The union cites a letter from Lord Maude of Horsham, the minister for trade and investment, in response to a query from a constituent of Labour MP Jim Fitzpatrick about how TTIP would pass into law in the UK.

In the letter, Lord Maude of Horsham says that the UK Parliament could delay the ratification of the final text of TTIP “indefinitely” by repeatedly voting against it in the House of Commons and the Lords.

Gail Cartmail, Unite assistant general secretary, said that it was “a scandal” that MPs may not have the democratic power to stop TTIP, which she said “threatens the irreversible sell-off of our NHS”.

Where Are the Other 10 Million Panama Papers?

When I posted my scepticism that we would be given the full truth about the content of the Panama Papers by the mainstream media outlets who were controlling them, it went viral and became the first individual article to be read by half a million people on this blog alone, and a multiple of that as it was posted all round the web, translated into several languages.

I also attracted some derision from establishment propagandists. I had contented that the fact the papers themselves were not made available, but we were rather fed selected information by the western and corporate state media, would limit and slant what the public was told. The initial concentration on Russia, Iran, Syria etc seemed to confirm this.
