Britain 'blocked' EU bid to raise China steel tariff that could have protected the industry from cheap imports

Britain led efforts to block EU tariffs that might have protected the steel industry in this country from a flood of cheap Chinese imports, it emerged yesterday.

George Osborne and David Cameron were accused last night of being more concerned with courting China than the fate of Tata steelworkers.

Young mom learns she may die of cancer after doctor misdiagnosed and put her through unnecessary chemo

Imagine having a horrible toothache that persists regardless of taking antibiotics or even having your tooth extracted. Then think of how you'd feel if you were told the problem was actually due to cancer, for which you were given chemotherapy and began showing signs of improvement. As if that's not difficult enough, imagine the horror of then being told you were diagnosed with the wrong kind of cancer all along, and that you weren't getting better at all.

Unfortunately, this is a true story that belongs to 27-year-old Gemma Wood.

Prisoners of War

The Continental Congress ultimately accepted responsibility for the administration of prisoners of war, but gave broad authority on the matter to the Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army, General George Washington.

Washington took an active role in the prisoner situation and was a constant advocate for the fair treatment of prisoners.

With few facilities to accommodate large numbers of prisoners, both the Americans and the British participated in prisoner exchange. Though Washington was actively involved in these matters, he appointed commissaries to handle the day-to-day details.

Pro-Brussels lobby 'misleading voters' by hiding its NAME on fear-mongering propaganda

The glossy propaganda pamphlet dropped into letterboxes across the country this morning scrawled with doom-laden theories about huge job losses and supermarket price hikes if Britons vote to leave the EU.

The controversial dossier was produced by Britain Stronger in Europe (BSIE) - which is officially leading the campaign to keep us in the EU - and features a series of claims by so-called "independent experts".

But the pro-Brussels group decided to leave its logo off the document altogether, whilst its name was only included in tiny grey small print which is barely legible.

Rumbled? Tories ‘broke the law’ to win 2015 general election

Dozens of Conservative Party MPs broke the law during local campaigns to win seats in the 2015 general election, which saw a Tory majority seize power, a new investigation alleges.

Some 24 candidates are accused of failing to declare funds spent on the Conservatives’ “RoadTrip 2015,” a bus which transported campaigners to marginal seats in the lead-up to the election and which has been widely credited as helping MPs win their seats.

The Daily Mirror investigation alleges MPs did not declare spending on the bus, along with the associated costs of food and hotel accommodation.

UK Junior Doctors Dispute At A Crossroads

The UK junior doctors’ dispute has entered a critical stage.

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has defended the government’s action in adopting the “nuclear option” to impose the contract by August 1 on 55,000 junior doctors in England. The junior doctors have demonstrated their determination to defeat this attack, which threatens the existence of the National Health Service (NHS). A series of national strikes has meant the cancellation of thousands of operations, but continues to command the support of workers who value junior doctors’ defence of a universal health service, against a Conservative government committed to the destruction of health and social care provision.

Teachers warn extremism policy prevents open debate

Teachers have warned that the government's anti-extremism strategy is "shutting down" open debate in school.

The National Union of Teachers conference voted for the government's Prevent strategy to be withdrawn from schools and colleges.

Delegates said it created "suspicion and confusion" rather than safety in schools.

...

There were warnings that it encouraged a climate of "over-reaction" in which pupils were mistakenly reported and the police called.

Among the cases mentioned were a child writing about a "cucumber" which was misinterpreted as "cooker bomb" and a child who wrote about living in a "terraced" house which was misunderstood as a "terrorist" house.

How your tax millions are sent to AMERICA: Washington think-thank received £5million to spend on a new HQ… while a green summit got £13,000

It is one of the richest countries on Earth, yet millions of pounds of British taxpayers’ money is being sent to fund aid organisations in the US, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

One Washington think-tank, the Center for Global Development (CGD), received £5.9 million – yet was so cash-rich that it moved into new £12 million offices complete with a 60-seat ‘ideas lab’.

British money was also inexplicably used to fund a global warming summit in Texas at which local businessmen were encouraged to jump on the ‘green energy’ bandwagon. And an American charity that received UK aid has made television shows about how rival jail gangs made peace over a shared loved of football.

British commandos training Bahraini armed forces to use sniper rifles

British commandos are training Bahrain’s armed forces – which violently put down pro-democracy protests during the Arab Spring in 2011 – in the use of sniper rifles, The Independent can reveal.

The revelation that elite Royal Navy commandos are running week-long training courses for Bahraini personnel has outraged human rights campaigners, who accuse the regime of using snipers to target protesters during anti-government protests in 2011.

Pro-democracy activists in Bahrain say the military training by elite troops from the Royal Navy’s 43 Commando Fleet Protection Group proves that the British Government is “turning a blind eye” to abuses in the country.

Originally obtained by Edward Snowden, the 96-page e-book has been published by Boing Boing, along with a second short document entitled "What's the worst that can happen?". Boing Boing describes this as "a kind of checklist for spies who are seeking permission to infect their adversaries' computers or networks with malicious software."

Politicians want to stop the UK Snooper’s Charter snooping on them

If you were ever in doubt about who politicians are working for – just check out the initial list of amendments to the highly controversial Investigatory Powers Bill currently being considered by the UK’s parliament.

The only amendment that’s been submitted to change the text of the proposed legislation asks for an additional safeguard to protect MPs from having their communications unnecessarily intercepted.

Today, the proposed law would require that the Prime Minister is consulted if any communications by MPs are to be intercepted. The new clause would add that the Speaker of the House of Commons must be consulted too.

Of course, politicians undertake important work and as such should be given the opportunity to do so without fear that they’re being spied on.

Billions of pounds of welfare cuts on way despite PIP U-turn

Priceless: Tony Greenstein Admits being a Zionist At Last!

Tony Greenstein, the Jewish ‘anti Zionist’ activist who has spent the best part of the last two decades harassing and slandering the most dedicated pro Palestinian thinkers and activists*, was expelled yesterday from the Labour party. Greenstein believes that it may have something to do with the “hysteria over ‘anti-Semitism’ amongst Corbyn supporters.

Interestingly, in a statement circulated yesterday, Greenstein himself admits that he wasn't an AZZ(Anti Zionist Zionist) as many of us assumed for years. He was actually a devoted Zionist operator seeking the approval of the most hawkish Zionist Lobby in Europe. Greenstein writes: “even the Zionist Board of Deputies of British Jews (BOD) and other Zionists have acknowledged my role in combatting Gilad Atzmon, a notorious anti-Semite who used to be associated with the Palestine solidarity movement.”

Worthless! Those commemorative coins you've stored away for years because Royal Mint tells banks not to take them

The Henkuns are fond of the coins, but last month decided they were really just gathering dust and would be more use to their two grandsons, aged six and two.

They took the lot to their local Lloyds Bank branch to cash them in and open a savings account. But to their surprise the retired couple were turned away empty handed.

Unbeknown to Rod and Yvonne, banks quietly stopped cashing in commemorative coins over the counter in January on the advice of the Royal Mint.

It is a cruel blow for the Henkuns and thousands of others who invested in these coins.

British 'Out' campaign takes 2 percentage point lead ahead of EU referendum – ICM poll

The campaign for Britain to leave the European Union has taken a 2 percentage point lead, according to an ICM poll, indicating a dispute in the Conservative Party may have dented confidence in Prime Minister David Cameron's push for the country to stay in.

Support for Britain to leave the EU rose to 43 percent, up 2 percentage points from a similar poll a week ago and the highest proportion in favour of a British exit since ICM started its referendum tracker in May 2015.

Three months before a June 23 referendum, the poll of 2,000 people carried out March 18-20 showed the "In" campaign on 41 percent, down from 43 percent a week ago.

George Osborne laughs and jokes with Michael Gove while being asked to apologise to disabled people for PIP cuts

George Osborne ignored a call to apologise to disabled people for rolling out and then cancelling cuts to a key disability benefit, choosing instead to chat and laugh with Michael Gove.

Labour's shadow Chancellor John McDonnell asked the Chancellor to apologise for the "pain" he had caused the group over the last two weeks.

"Apologise for the pain and anguish he's caused disabled people and their families for the last two weeks. When you make a mistake and you correct it as least you should apologise," the Labour MP said.

But Mr Osborne could be seen entirely ignoring Mr McDonnell on the benches opposite, apparently preferring to swap jokes with Mr Gove while the justice minister tapped away on his phone.

ISIS Twitter Accounts Traced to British Government

So Saudi firms are using IP addresses purchased from the British government to spread ISIS propaganda on Twitter. Meanwhile, activists who try to get these accounts removed are themselves banned. Why would Twitter ban users reporting accounts linked to ISIS? Maybe because some of these accounts can be traced back to Saudi Arabia, and even the British government. As it was reported in December: Hackers have claimed that a number of Islamic State supporters' social media accounts are being run from internet addresses linked to the [UK] Department of Work and Pensions. A group of four young computer experts who call themselves VandaSec have unearthed evidence indicating that at least three ISIS-supporting accounts can be traced back to the DWP. But the story gets weirder. The British government allegedly sold a larger amount of IP addresses to "two Saudi firms", which explains why ISIS uses IP addresses that can be traced back to the British government.

UK PM David Cameron delays release of Iraq report as EU referendum looms

British Prime Minister David Cameron will postpone publication of the Iraq war inquiry report until after the European Union referendum, leading to accusations that he is deliberately delaying controversial announcements.

Senior government sources confirmed that it is likely to be published after the June 23 vote, even though it will be handed to ministers next month. Mr Cameron had previously suggested he wanted to publish the report, which is expected to heavily criticise senior political figures, within two weeks of receiving it.

The prospect of a further delay was denounced on Friday by families who lost loved ones in the conflict.

The report of the six-year-long Chilcot inquiry has been repeatedly delayed after those criticised within it were given the right of reply, a process known as Maxwellisation.

Reg Keys, who lost his 20-year-old son Lance-Corporal Thomas Keys in the war, said the delay was adding to the families' pain.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Imagine my (complete absence of) surprise here!

The war was immoral, illegal, and based on a pack of lies; far too many good young Americans and Brits lost their lives, or became crippled for life, for control of Iraq's oil, and selling it only in US-denominated currency.

In a brutal parting shot, the Work and Pensions Secretary complained that cuts to disabled benefits in George Osborne's financial package were "politically driven" and suggested the Chancellor had abandoned the austerity principle of "all in this together"

"I have for some time and rather reluctantly come to believe that the latest changes to benefits to the disabled and the context in which they've been made are a compromise too far," Mr Duncan Smith wrote in his resignation letter.

British warships to intercept migrants off Libyan shore

British warships could be fighting back people smugglers within sight of the Libyan coast within months, under plans presented by David Cameron.

The Prime Minister told his counterparts at a summit in Brussels he wanted to expand a current EU naval force operating in the central Mediterranean to stop hundreds of thousands of migrants crossing from Libya to Europe.

Angela Merkel’s €6 billion aid-for-deportations deal was in serious jeopardy as leaders warned Turkish “blackmail” risked violating international law. Talks were set to grind through the night before a Turkish breakfast this morning with Ahmet Davutoglu, the country’s wily prime minister.

Bank of England Intentionally Strangles UK Economy to Discourage Brexit

It could be that Britain will face a series of financial difficulties if pro-Brexit forces seem to be gaining the upper hand.

There are historical precedents stretching back several centuries to when US President Andrew Jackson took aim at America’s second central bank.

When President Andrew Jackson made it clear that he was going to shut down the central bank, its head, Nicholas Biddle, fought back by threatening to contract the money supply.

When he actually did so, Congress convened a special Panic Session. Eventually, Jackson won the battle to shut down the bank and the US did without a central bank until 1913, when the Federal Reserve came into being.

It sounds fairly absurd to suggest the Bank of England and proponents of the EU within London’s square mile financial City would take aim at Britain’s economy in order to remove the threat of Brexit.

And yet reading between the lines, the warnings seem clear enough.

Is GCHQ Embedded in Wikipedia?

Philip Cross may be Oliver Kamm. Or he may be someone who shares his views closely and echoes them in a synchronised way. Or he may be an identity which cloaks the activities of a group of people. But it is absolutely plain that “Philip Cross” is used systematically to attack the Wikipedia entries of prominent anti-establishment figures, and simultaneously to bolster the image of the corporate media. The purpose of “Philip Cross” is to ensure that an anti-establishment narrative does not take hold on Wikipedia.

The burning question is this. “Philip Cross'” activities and purpose are blindingly obvious. Actions such as the hundred edits to my page and removal of my photo, or the continued war on John Piger’s entry, are completely unjustifiable. Why then does Wikipedia continue to tolerate “Philip Cross” and grant him administrator privileges?

'He should stay out' Barack Obama warned against interfering in Brexit debate

Barack Obama will fly to Britain next month to urge voters to stay in the EU... but he is immediately accused of hypocrisy as he is reminded of how the US won independence

Barack Obama will fly to Britain next month to urge voters to back staying in the European Union, it was revealed this morning.
The US President is planning a 'big, public reach-out' to British voters to make the case for staying in the Brussels club.
But Brexit campaigners have hit back, saying the intervention from the president of a country that won its independence through a civil war was hypocritical and told Mr Obama to 'keep his views to himself'.

The US President (pictured boarding Air Force in Dallas yesterday) is planning a 'big, public reach-out' to British voters to make the case for staying in the Brussels club.

It will be seen as part of Mr Obama's efforts to repair relations with David Cameron after the US President criticised the UK Prime Minister over his foreign policy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to President Obama; sir, forgive the "sang foid" characterisation here, but it appears that you are gallivanting off to the UK and Germany because you, and your administration, are pathologically incapable of fixing both the huge foreign and domestic policy blunders you have created, during your two terms in office.

The massive outsourcing/offshoring of jobs continues apace, because you are owned by the multinationals which funded your election cycles; real poverty, and real unemployment are at all-time highs; and the wars in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia, Yemen, and South Sudan continue apace with no negotiated settlements in sight for (most probably) years.

And this stop-off in the UK to attempt to sway British voters away from a Brexit will, ultimately, be just about as useful as was Netanyahu's address to Congress to shun the P5+1 deal with Iran; do you at all remember, sir, how that really made you feel?!?

Britons are thoroughly capable of choosing their own destiny, thank you very much, and they do not need you to tell them what is good for the UK.

100 REASONS FOR EU BREXIT

The EU is run by an unelected élite which largely ignores the individual, ignores election results, ignores State sovereignty, ignores debt mountains, ignores currency realities, ignores poverty, ignores its responsibilities and above all, ignores every legal and constitutional obstacle in its way.

It is dominated by a Germany sailing at Full Ahead Both towards a confrontation with co-founder France. It puts the banking system before citizens. It puts corporate shareholder needs before workers’ rights. And it puts The Great Federal Project before any considerations of cost, practicality, Member State rights, social anthropology and freedoms of speech.

In order to achieve ‘escape velocity’ however, the Brexit campaign needs to be cohesive, on the front foot, and persuading all the perfectly decent people out there who are confused, and thus undecided, about the pros and cons.

Barack Obama has sharply criticised David Cameron for the UK’s role in allowing Libya to become a “shit show” after the fall of the dictator Muammar Gaddafi, in an unprecedented attack on a British leader by a serving US President.

Mr Obama said that following a successful military intervention to aid rebels during the 2011 Arab Spring revolt, Libya was left to spiral out of control – due largely to the inaction of America’s European allies.

In a candid US magazine interview, Mr Obama said: “When I go back and I ask myself what went wrong… there’s room for criticism, because I had more faith in the Europeans, given Libya’s proximity, being invested in the follow-up.”

Conman Blair's cynical conspiracy to deceive the British people and let in 2million migrants against the rules: Explosive new biography lays ex-PM's betrayal bare

Tony Blair presided over a silent conspiracy to change the face of Britain for ever with mass immigration, an explosive book reveals.

He ordered his Labour government never to discuss in public the supposed ‘advantages’ of the unprecedented influx.

But behind the scenes ministers were instructed to wave tens of thousands of asylum seekers into the UK under cover of their being ‘economic migrants’. Astonishingly, the minister Mr Blair put in charge of borders ruled against deporting failed claimants because it would be too ‘emotional’.

The main aim of allowing in millions of people was to make the country ‘see the benefit of a multicultural society’. The Blair government did not see its job as being to ‘control immigration’.

Kent town politely reminds Queen about historic £8 billion ‘debt’

Her Royal Highness received a surprise in the post in the form of a letter from a group of friends from the town of Sandwich, Kent, asking her to honour the apparent promise. The amateur historians, who regularly meet at the Haven Café’s Breakfast Club, believe Queen Elizabeth I promised to help towards the cost of dredging the River Stour in 1572, but say the money never arrived. They joked in the letter: “We are sorry to bother you; we know how very busy you are. We hope we are not being too pushy, but is there any word yet please?” Group member Ron Coleman joked to Kent Online that he believes the Queen’s ‘debt’ runs into billions if you include interest payments. “One of our members, an accountant, has calculated the subsequent loss of income to Sandwich over the 444 years allowing for inflation to be not less than £8 billion,” he said.
