Lloyds tells staff to cancel meetings with customers who want help or advice but won't make the bank any money

Staff at Britain’s biggest bank have been ordered not to waste their time keeping appointments with customers who will not make them any cash.

A leaked email from a senior manager at Lloyds highlights the state-backed lender’s lack of concern for loyal customers.

It instructs branch staff to cancel appointments with any customers who simply want help or advice and do not want to buy anything.

MPs under fire for £1million revamp of Westminster Tea Room despite fact they could be about to move out of Commons

Commons officials were unable to provide details of the refit beyond saying that it involved essential ‘health and safety’ work as part of a ‘catering refurbishment project’.

But last night, even some MPs questioned the timing of the redecoration – given that they may soon move out of the Commons to allow a huge restoration of the crumbling Palace of Westminster.

How Privatisation Of The NHS Is A Scam

The House of Lords recently passed David Cameron’s laws aimed at privatising even more of the NHS. This vote for the controversial laws has increased calls for reforming the House of Lords. Calls further heightened after the resignation of Deputy Speaker John Sewel due to a drugs and hookers scandal.

Windows 10: Man updates PC and wakes up to find porn slideshow on repeat

An unfortunate Windows 10 user was left red-faced after upgrading to Microsoft's new operating system - when his pornography catalogue began blinking across his screen in a slideshow on repeat.

Excited to upgrade to the new format, the computer-lover upgraded to the new software and left it to 'do its thing', only to be woken by his wife asking why his collection of pornographic images was rotating on the desktop view.

The unfortunate user appears to have fallen foul of feature of the new operating system which pulls through images saved in one of the default folders to be used as a slideshow.

Erodogan and Netanyahu Declare War

The rulers of the two most powerful authoritarian regimes in the Middle East are launching major wars to reconfigure the Middle East.

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has declared war by proxy on Iran, announcing full-scale military mobilization within Israel (July 27 -29) and organizing the biggest political campaign of ultra Zionist Jews in Washington. The purpose of this two-pronged propaganda blitz is to defeat the recently signed US-Iranian agreement and start another major Middle East war.

At the same time, Turkish Prime Minister Erodogan has launched a major war against the Kurdish people and their aspirations for a Kurdish state. T

Whenever you stay in any hotel in Latin America, which does not “play” RT, PressTV, CCTV, TeleSUR, be a pest; demand! Nag, nag, and nag!

Mighty new television networks based in South America, Russia, China and Iran are locked in what could only be described as an epic battle against the omnipresent Western propaganda and indoctrination networks.Their programs can be seen all over the globe, and they have been dramatically changing the lives of millions in Africa, Latin America and the Middle East, even in some hubs of the Empire itself, like New York and London.

Greece – And the Horror of Europe

Dear Reader, this is as far as we have fallen since the ascent of neoliberalism in the last twenty-some years. No ethics, no moral, no law, just coercion for greed and ultimate hegemony – enslavement of the people while and after they are lulled and dulled with lies 24/7.

According to UNHCR about 50 million refugees are on the move every day on our globe. This is most likely an understatement, as this figure doesn’t take into account what takes place in the almost hermetically closed-off Central Africa, Congo, Zaïre, where western corporations are exploiting for a pittance and with millions of slaves precious metals, uranium, hydrocarbons and rare earths – and where millions have died over the past ten years, by butcher regimes supported and armed by the west – and where millions are on the run.

The real figure of refugees on the run is easily 60 to 65 million;

Iran Political Fulmination Versus Diplomatic Deal

Viewers and readers should question polls, whether reported by CNN or Fox or MSNBC with the same vigor the old Chicago News Bureau once counseled, “If your mother says she loves you, check it out”.

Blessings upon New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof for pointing out that “fulmination” is the right word to describe opposition to the diplomatic deal President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have just reached with Iran and the P5+1 major world powers.

The P5+1 offers a strong array of international powers. The term P5+1 refers to the UN Security Council’s five permanent members (the P5); namely China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States; plus Germany.

The PPP poll finds that “there’s strong support nationally for the Iran deal, that voters want their members of Congress to let it move forward, and that there’s no potential political backlash for members who do support the deal”.

Incongruities in the News — Paul Craig Roberts

Jonathan Pollard, a paid spy for Israel described by Michael D. Shear as “one of the country’s most notorious spies,” has been pardoned from his life sentence.

Pollard is a hero to Israel, not to America, and it is Pollard who is released. Manning, Snowden, and Assange are heroes to America, and they continue to be confined.

What disturbs me about the case is that it is Pollard, who spied for a foreign country, who is released. In contrast, Manning and Snowden who spied for the American people are locked away, Manning in a federal prison and Snowden in his Russian exile. Julian Assange, who merely did his job as a journalist and made available to newspapers documents leaked to him, is confined to the Ecuadoran embassy in London.

NatWest, RBS In Online Banking Problems

RBS is investigating a fault with its online banking system, amid customers reporting they were unable to access their accounts.

The bank's helpline on Twitter received dozens of messages from customers unable to log-in for online banking and the bank's mobile app earlier today.

Many of those complaining said they are due to be paid, with one saying she was overdrawn three days after payday but couldn't access online banking.

The bank responded on Twitter: "Please try not to panic".

Media blackout system to be relaunched

A media blackout system to stop lives being put at risk has been relaunched amid a growing focus on counter-terrorism and intelligence.

The long-standing DA-notice process that warns newspapers and broadcasters not to publish material which could jeopardise national security has become the Defence and Security Media Advisory (DSMA) system.

It comes after an increase in the number of cases relating to sensitive information about national intelligence rather than defence. Around 40% of the issues dealt with over the last 18 months were about security.

The changes follow a review of the process, most widely known as the D-notice system, by academics and leading industry figures.

Fabrication in BBC Panorama “Saving Syria’s Children”: Substitution of “Napalm Bomb” Footage

The below admission from the BBC that its substitution of Syria footage between two 2014 broadcasts breaches its own Editorial Guidelines on accuracy is a modest victory in the battle to attract scrutiny to the wider charges that one of the reports in question (at least) was largely, if not entirely, fabricated.

For almost two years I have pursued the question of whether scenes of the aftermath of an alleged incendiary attack on an Aleppo school – filmed by BBC staff and first broadcast as UK legislators voted on military intervention in Syria – were staged for the purposes of propaganda.

Fracking could be delayed for up to two years across UK after Lancashire council rejects test drilling

Government plans to roll out fracking across Britain face delays of up to two years following a surprise decision to reject exploration for shale gas in Lancashire.

Ministers are concerned by the implications of the decision by Lancashire County Council last month to reject planning applications from the shale gas company Cuadrilla to drill eight wells at two sites on the Fylde coastal plain.

The Government had been expecting councilors to give their go-ahead to exploratory drilling on sites. But instead they turned down Cuadrilla’s application on the grounds that it would have an unacceptable visual impact and create too much noise.

Cuadrilla has now appealed but that process, regardless of the outcome, is likely to take 16 months.

UK government whips up anti-immigrant hysteria over Eurotunnel security at Calais

Britain’s Conservative government and the media have responded with undisguised xenophobia to attempts by migrants at the French port of Calais to enter the UK via the Channel Tunnel.

The desperate efforts of migrants to enter Britain led to the death Tuesday night of a Sudanese man who was hit by a truck leaving a cross-channel ferry. A spokesman for Eurotunnel, which runs the Channel crossing, said Wednesday, “Our team found a corpse this morning and the firefighters have confirmed the death of this person.”

A former head of the Commons’ standards committee said there was an urgent need for reform as the Lords had become “an absurd joke”.

Reduced to tears by bailiffs shouting through her letterbox: Woman was bullied by the banks for FIVE YEARS over a £16,000 debt owed by someone with the same name

Jennifer Walker has been harassed for five years over debts that aren’t hers.

And though she has frequently protested her innocence, the demands keep coming.

She has been contacted by 24 different firms, had bailiffs shouting through her letterbox and received intimidating letters on Christmas Eve from debt collectors threatening to repossess her house.

She has explained to banks, phone companies, mail order firms and credit card providers that she is not the person they are looking for — but it makes no difference.

Revealed: The peer who claims £300 A DAY to walk just 200 yards to work. After cocaine and call girls, how Lords cash in on taxpayer-funded expenses

She lives in a £4million home just 200 yards from the House of Lords.

Yet Baroness Wilcox still bills the taxpayer up to £5,700 a month for her walk to work.

In two years, the 74-year-old former Cadbury Schweppes director has pocketed £74,400 in parliamentary attendance allowances.

The former Tory minister is among scores of affluent peers who claim thousands despite living in and around Westminster.

None has broken any rules – and they are otherwise unsalaried. But they stand accused of cynically exploiting a new tax-free payment of up to £300 a day that is massively weighted in favour of those based in London.

Labour is now so passive, it might as well be led by an out-of-office email

So Labour passed the welfare bill with the passive silence of a married orgasm. It has lost touch so badly that it is now getting lectures on empathy from someone from Paisley. Harriet Harman might as well stand down and leave the party to be managed by an out-of-office email. It’s as if their MPs know they lost the election but don’t realise they actually still have jobs in parliament. Like when a nursery kid finishes their one line in the nativity play then carries on picking their nose in front of the school … LABOUR WE CAN STILL SEE YOU.

London Underground serial killer ‘covered up’ by Home Office, former detective claims

A former detective claims Scotland Yard covered up the case of a self-confessed serial killer who pushed up to 18 people to their deaths on the London Underground during the 1970s.

Retired Scotland Yard Detective Geof Platt said the cases were “suppressed” by press officers working for the government as they “didn’t want people knowing a serial killer got away with pushing innocent people onto the tracks.”

Cameron’s criticism of money laundering formed part of a speech on financial secrecy in Singapore.

Craig Murray: democracy in the UK is dysfunctional - an entrenched party system offers no real choice.

.... The major parties offer political programmes which are virtually indistinguishable. As I put it in lectures, if the range of possible political programmes were placed on a linear scale from 1 to 100, the Labour and Conservative parties offer you the choice between 81 and 84.

This exclusion of political possibility is reinforced by a corporate media structure, led by the BBC, in which ideas outside the narrow band of establishment consensus are ridiculed and denigrated. Therefore even political ideas which have the consistent support of the majority of the population, such as nationalisation of railways and other natural monopolies including utilities, simply cannot get an airing. Of all the broadcast coverage of the Iraq War, less than 3% gave time to anti-war voices, despite a majority opinion against the war.

This phenomenon explains why a large majority of both Conservative and Labour MPs are members of the Friends of Israel when public opinion consistently sympathises more with Palestine. It also explains the quite extraordinary media onslaught against Scottish independence.

Disgraced peer Lord Sewel 'won’t quit' and can keep claiming £300-a-day allowance despite being reported to police over video of him snorting cocaine with call girls

Lord Sewel's reputation and political career are in tatters after a video emerged of him cavorting with two sex workers in his central London flat, behind the back of his third wife Lady Jennifer.

The married father of four was filmed necking champagne and vodka before using a £5 note to snort lines of cocaine from a table and later from the breasts of a sex worker 45 years his junior.

But a source told the BBC today he would not be quitting over the scandal.

Secret plans to deploy soldiers on UK streets in the aftermath of a terror attack are 'shocking' and 'provocative', says peer

Secret police plans to deploy more than 5,000 armed soldiers on British streets in the wake of a UK terror attack have been questioned by a prominent peer as a “provocative” act that could potentially endanger the public.

Accidentally leaked minutes from a meeting of the National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC), published as David Cameron flew to South-east Asia planning to discuss Isis with leaders in the region, said “large scale military support” could “augment armed police officers engaged in protective security duties”.

Parliament computers made 250,000 attempts to 'access pornography' at Palace of Westminster

Attempts to access websites classified as pornography were made almost 700 times a day by computers inside Parliament last year, it has been reported.

Almost 250,000 attempts were made in total, according to data released by the Palace of Westminster’s IT department under Freedom of Information (FoI) laws.

The figures, down from around 800 a day according to similar FoI requests two years ago, are likely to include a large number of “visits” made unintentionally, most commonly via unwanted internet pop-ups.

But it comes at a time when the Government is taking unprecedented steps to crack down on the use of pornography among the general public.

Condemnation After UK Lifts Ban on Bee-Killing Neonicotinoids

The UK government this week temporarily lifted a ban on controversial pesticides linked to widespread harm to bees and other insects—a move which one environmental group said "shows a blatant disregard for our wildlife."

The ban was lifted under an "emergency" measure in response to an application by the National Farmers' Union (NFU). Under the statute, farmers cultivating around 300 square kilometers of oilseed rape will have access for 120 days to two neonicotinoid pesticides, or neonics, from agrochemical giants Bayer and Syngenta.

Peter Beinart’s Fantasy – Raimondo

Does Beinart really believe the media complex that gives the War Party a guaranteed platform suffers from amnesia? I hardly think so.

Peter Beinart asks some pretty good questions: he wants to know why the same crowd that lied us into war in Iraq isn’t completely discredited when it comes to their opposition to the recently concluded deal with Iran. No, he doesn’t put it quite that way, in part because, by his own admission, he was one of the most enthusiastic cheerleaders for what he now describes as “one of the most important, and damaging, episodes in the history of U.S. foreign policy.” He frames his question this way:

“I have a fantasy. It’s that every politician and pundit who goes on TV to discuss the Iran deal is asked this question first: ‘Did you support the Iraq War, and how has that experience informed your position?’”

Beinart is right to regard this as a fantasy, because it will never happen. Yet he fails to ask why that is.

The War on Conspiracy Realists Continues

British government under Cameron's watch has been an active and willing partner in the Machiavellian strategy of divide and rule in the Middle East spearheaded by the US and Israel.

Obama picked up where Bush left off, flooding Syrian and Libyan insurgent groups with untold largesse and arms, using the corrupted Arab Gulf kingdoms as conduits for weapons transfers for the sake of plausible deniability.

ISIS themselves have mostly eschewed hostility towards Israel, posting an official statement on social media in July 2014 saying that they’re more interested in fighting “Muslim infidels” than the Zionist state.[6]

Israeli officials have expressed similar sentiments, with Israel’s former envoy to the US,Michael Oren, stating in a September 2013 interview that Tel Aviv “prefers” ISIS and al-Qaeda over the “bad guys backed by Iran,” namely Syria’s Assad and Hezbollah.

John Bercow claimed £367 for going to Luton to talk about expenses scandal

The Speaker of the House of Commons has been criticised for racking up large travel expenses – including a £172 bill for a 0.7-mile chauffeur-driven journey that would have taken 15 minutes on foot.

John Bercow also spent £367 taking a car to Luton to deliver a speech on how MPs were restoring their reputation after the expenses scandal, figures released under the Freedom of Information (FoI) Act show.

His car to Lady Thatcher’s funeral at St Paul’s Cathedral, 1.8 miles from the Commons, cost £158, while he used an official car to travel to Canterbury to see Archbishop Justin Welby enthroned in 2013 at a cost of £524.

In April 2013, he spent £172 taking a car to Carlton House Terrace – just 0.7 miles from the Commons – to open a conference on alternative and augmentative communication. A taxi fare for the round trip was likely to have cost less than £15.

British politicians – including Gordon Brown – stand accused of diverting huge amounts of cash through the organisations after falling under the spell of the US presidential candidate and her husband Bill.

At least £50 million of taxpayer-funded foreign aid money has gone to Clinton charities, which are at the centre of allegations in the US that foreign governments used donations to buy influence.

MPs can no longer remain exempt from surveillance, lawyers concede

The so-called Wilson doctrine “simply cannot work sensibly” when bulk interception is taking place, James Eadie QC told the investigatory powers tribunal – the court that hears complaints about the intelligence agencies.

The Fine or the Crude Art of Window Dressing – Hypocrisy at its Best

It is simply tit for tat and it is part of the window dressing routine that both sides have to engage in for a long while.

In the meantime, again we are being told by the Administration officials and the mass media that Iran continues to be the world’s biggest supporter of terrorism and is busy destabilizing the region by backing the Assad regime in Syria, the Shi’a militia in Iraq, and the Houthis in Yemen.

An exchange between US Ambassador to the UN and her Iranian counterpart is another example of the post-nuclear-agreement Cold War between the United States and the Islamic Republic:

The Iranian administration, reading and hearing the foregoing rhetoric on a daily basis, is certainly not going to take all the allegations and insults without reacting in kind. Both sides must remain actively engaged in window dressing and face saving charade for some time.

One Way to Handle the Crisis in US-Russia Relations

What we are witnessing is the rise of a new wave of the most dangerous arms race with totally unpredictable consequences.

At the moment it is unrealistic to expect a speedy improvement in US – Russia relations. This is to be regretted, but it is a fact: these relations have reached perhaps the lowest point and are even worse than during Soviet times – a really disturbing development.

The general public is aware that both nations are facing off on the political, economic, and informational fronts. However, they also confront each other in yet another area which is only followed by a narrow circle of experts, though it bears directly on the most important security issues facing the whole planet.

The reference is, of course, to major arms control treaties. These took many years and tremendous efforts to negotiate, and yet they now dissolve one after another.

Children in Belfast boys' home were allowed to be sexually abused by paedophiles for "leverage"

Speaking in the video interview with Exaro, Kerr says that paedophilia at Kincora boys’ home in east Belfast, Northern Ireland was used “to gain leverage over others for political reasons during the Troubles.”

The comments will re-ignite claims that British intelligence officials exploited the sexual abuse of children at Kincora for strategic reasons. Kerr says: “Some of us were used to have leverage over others in political systems. People wanted to gain power and rank.”

“The Kincora story, in a nutshell? It is about people in power who tried to use boys like myself to gain leverage over others for political reasons during the Troubles.”

UK defence secretary admits flouting parliamentary ban on military involvement in Syrian war

Lord Greville Janner got a starring role on Australian TV (must watch)

The Australian TV was kind enough to conceal the embarrassing fact that at the time Lord Greville Jenner allegedly slept with young kids in his marital bed, he was also the Chairman of the BOD, a body that claims to represent British Jewry.

It’s shaping up to be the biggest political scandal in Britain’s history. There is new evidence that some of the country’s most respected men were in fact depraved paedophiles. Leaders that were preying on children as young as eight and nine. Many of the kids were trafficked from state-run homes and other institutions to be abused by MPs, Lords, and spies. They were protected from on high by a secret code, and have never been held to account for their horrific crimes.

UNSC resolution endorses Iran’s nuclear program: Analysts

Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich : The United States has not changed its attitude towards Iran. Tactics change but goals don’t. Iran has negotiated in good faith but must expect mischief from the U.S.

The UN Security Council (UNSC) on Monday unanimously adopted a resolution endorsing the Iran nuclear deal and paving the way to lifting longstanding sanctions on the Islamic Republic.

– UNSC unanimously votes in favor of lifting Iran sanctions

– All 15 members of UNSC vote in favor of lifting sanctions against Iran

– All UN nuclear-related sanctions against Iran will be removed in 90 days from UNSC approval.

– Any P5+1 country can raise what it considers violation of conclusion.

Buckingham Palace orders inquiry, threatens legal action over Nazi salute film

A grainy video—17 seconds long—was published as an exclusive on Saturday by Rupert Murdoch’s Sun newspaper, under the heading “Their Royal Heilness,” igniting a political firestorm. The film depicts a young Queen Elizabeth and members of her family giving a Nazi salute.

Thought to have been taken in 1933, it shows the queen, then aged six, playing with her three-year old sister Margaret, her mother and her uncle, then Prince Edward.

VIP pedophile ring operating out of Buckingham Palace and Balmoral Castle

A teenage boy working at Buckingham Palace revealed he was groomed and sexually abused by a VIP pedophile ring there.

The lad was also assaulted at the Royal Family’s Scottish retreat Balmoral, according to shocking Home Office files, reports the Sunday People.

In a heartbreaking note, the boy – then just 16 – told how he was the victim of “exploitation of the highest order”.

The chilling claims could now be the subject of a police investigation into ­historic allegations of child sex abuse in the 1970s and 80s – linked to MPs and powerful figures.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Maybe these sickos do it just for the thrill. I mean, they have everything in life they want, no challenges, nothing left to accomplish. It must be boring as hell, and maybe they cannot feel anything at all unless they step as far outside socially accepted norms as they can.

British Royal Nazi Salute – a Sign of the Times

The British royal family is up in arms – excuse the pun – over old video footage that shows the young Queen Elizabeth giving a Heil Hitler salute. A photograph published on its front page by British tabloid newspaper The Sun has caused a storm of controversy, with the British monarchy denouncing it as an invasion of privacy. But the real significance is that the image shows how Western so-called democracies were – and still are – so close to embracing fascism.

There was a consensus among Britain’s ruling class during the 1930s that quietly but enthusiastically endorsed Hitler and fascism as a bulwark against democracy and socialism in particular.

Hillary’s secret war

Does she really think the American voters will overlook her criminal behavior and put her in the White House where she can pardon herself?

Recently, in conjunction with my colleagues Catherine Herridge and Pamela Browne, I read the transcripts of an interview Ms. Browne did with a man named Marc Turi, and Ms. Herridge asked me to review emails to and from State Department and congressional officials during the years when Hillary Clinton was the secretary of state.

What I saw has persuaded me beyond a reasonable doubt and to a moral certainty that Mrs. Clinton provided material assistance to terrorists and lied to Congress in a venue where the law required her to be truthful. Here is the backstory.

Mr. Turi is a lawfully licensed American arms dealer.

Buckingham Palace considers legal action over leaked Queen Nazi salute film

Buckingham Palace is considering taking legal action over leaked footage that shows the Queen as a child performing a Nazi salute with her family.

The Palace has launched an inquiry into how the 17-second black and white film came into the hands of The Sun newspaper.

It shows the Queen, aged six or seven, join the Queen Mother and her uncle Prince Edward in raising an arm in salute as she played alongside her younger sister, Princess Margaret.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is another "We decide what the symbol means" moments, not unlike the contrived flap over the Confederate flag. Why is what the Queen did a Nazi salute? After all, American children in the 1930s were taught to make the exact same gesture while pledging allegiance to the US flag!

You need to study history more to understand why this is such a tempest in a teapot. In 1933 WW2 was still 6 years away. Hitler had just started the revival of Germany's economy. It was called the German Miracle and it worked so well that Hitler was TIME Magazine's Man of the Year in 1938. In 1930, Germany looked good! To everyone! But behind the scenes, bankers in Britain and the US realized that the German Miracle was based on Hitler's shutting down the private central bank imposed on Germany by the treaty of Versailles at the end of WW1, and issuing a government currency that freed the German people from usury paid to the private bankers. As a result, of course Germany was going to be an economic powerhouse no nation still enslaved to a private central bank could possibly compete with. The private central bankers were worried that the people of other nations would see how well Germany was doing and want to free themselves of the private central bankers as well. In 1933 the private central bankers organized a global boycott against Germany, trying to crush this upstart who thought he could run a country by creating his own money (the same reason they supported the Confederacy to destroy Lincoln's Greenbacks) . In 1936, Winston Churchill started arguing for a new war with Germany in British Radio broadcasts. All that was needed was to provoke Germany into an overt move that could be used as a pretext to blame Germany for the war, much as Germany had been made the villain in WW1, which was actually between Austria-Hungary and Serbia.

The Nuclear Agreement; Fantasies vs Facts

Iranians are celebrating the prospects of a long awaited relief from the economic pain that the sanctions had imposed upon the nation. While they blame the United States government for what they believe to have been an unjustified and unfair treatment, they are divided as to what the true motivating factors could have been behind America’s animosity toward Iran.

The majority opinion points to America’s insatiable appetite for a hegemonic control over the region and its energy resources. A much smaller segment of the population comprising of the more educated elites, believe that Israel and its Zionist supporters in the United States have been at the helm and steering America’s foreign policy in the Middle East toward Israel’s preferences, even at the expense of America’s own strategic interests.

How Britian covered up the friendship between Hitler & Edward VIII

History has romanticized Edward VIII as the king of hearts, the man who gave up the throne for the love of an American divorcee, Wallis Simpson. But the truth is far darker, says author Andrew Morton, Princess Diana’s official biographer. In his new book, “17 Carnations: The Royals, the Nazis and the Biggest Cover-Up in History,” Morton unveils how Edward VIII openly sympathized with the Nazis — a fact the British leadership desperately attempted to hide.

The end of FoI? 'Right to know' in peril as Government targets Freedom of Information

The Government’s decision to launch a review of the Freedom of Information Act was widely condemned last night as likely to lead to “more secrecy, more mistakes and bad decisions”.

The unexpected move to set up a review of the law emerged just hours after a FoI request revealed how British pilots were involved in Syrian air strikes – a fact ministers had kept from the public.

Critics argued that a commission was likely to lead to more secrecy – allowing politicians and officials to conceal “bad decisions and mistakes”. They expressed scepticism that the review would be unbiased, given that one of the commissioners, former Labour Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, is an outspoken critic of how the Act is enforced.

The recently published fourth edition of the UK Justice Policy Review has also identified prison overcrowding and the continued cuts to funding as a major cause of increased prison violence, as well as questioning the decisions which see the two firms gain increasingly strong positions within the industry – in spite of an ongoing criminal investigation.

UK mass surveillance laws are unlawful, it's official

In what will be seen as a big win for privacy activists everywhere, a challenge brought by MPs David Davis and Tom Watson has now been proven legitimate. The High Court ruled today that sections 1 and 2 of Dripa are unlawful because they breach Articles 7 and 8 of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights.

"The court has recognised what was clear to many last year, that the government's hasty and ill-thought through legislation is fatally flawed," said triumphant MP for Haltemprice and Howden, Davis. "They will now have to rewrite the law to require judicial or independent approval before accessing innocent people's data, reflecting the new consensus amongst experts in the Anderson and RUSI reports. This change will improve both privacy and security, as whilst the government gave Parliament one day to consider its law, the court has given almost nine months."

ANNIVERSARY FLASHBACK - U.K. The Mysterious Death of Dr David Kelly: Damning New Evidence Points to a Cover-up by Tony Blair's Government

Many believe the truth about the manner of Dr Kelly's death has never been established properly. Some even fear that the 59-year-old, the world's leading expert in biological and chemical
weapons, was murdered.

Of course, it would be easy to dismiss these skeptics as wild conspiracy theorists but for the fact they include eminent doctors and MPs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In March of 2003, the US and its international gang members invaded Iraq for the second time, selling the war to the public with the claim that Saddam Hussein had nuclear weapons of mass destruction, banned by the United Nations, and could destroy the US and UK with just 45 minutes' warning! Although it is widely accepted today that these claims of nuclear weapons were a complete lie used to justify what was actually a war to seize control of Iraq's oil to stop it from being sold for the Euro (which the UN had authorized just the year before), in mid 2003 the growing suspicions of deception were still being denounced by the government and by the presstitutes and whorespondents of the corporate media as "conspiracy theories", and those who asked pertinent questions as "tin-foil hat wearing kooks."

Attention quickly focused on the document produced by Tony Blair's office, since called the "Dodgy Dossier", claiming that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction. This was prompted by the revelation that it was actually copied from a hopelessly outdated student thesis (as publicly revealed by the student) and the leaking of the Downing Street Memo which made it clear that claims about WMDs were propaganda fixed around an already existing decision to launch a war of conquest into Iraq.

Public outcry forced the British Government to launch an investigation which found that Iraq had fully complied with the UN Resolution to dispose of its weapons of mass destruction, that Iraq never had nuclear weapons, and had destroyed their stockpiles of chemical weapons (most of which were given to Iraq by the US to use against Iran). This meant the US/UK invasion was not only totally unjustified but illegal as well. Key to the British Inquiry was weapons inspector Dr. David Kelly who resisted pressure to support the propaganda lie and provided clear documentation of the results of the inspections carried out by himself and his fellow team mates in trying to find the weapons Bush and Blair had insisted were there. The British inquiry concluded that Bush and Blair had lied. Then, on July 17th, 2003, Dr. Kelly, relaxing after his harrowing ordeal, went for a walk, and never returned home, His body was found the following day, and immediately declared to be a suicide, a combination of taking an overdose of pills followed by the slashing of his wrist.

But there were problems with the official story, starting with why Dr. Kelly would consider suicide when the stresses of the inquiry were now over? Paramedics at the scene where the body was found insisted it had been moved post-mortem, and found EKG sensors still taped to his chest! Dr. Kelly's family insisted he was not suicidal. The packages of pills found in Dr. Kelly's pocket did not have his fingerprints on them! And one of the other UN weapons inspectors reported that Dr. Kelly was on a "hit list" because of things he knew that had not yet been made public! And it was reported than a British agent had admitted Kelly had been "exterminated." At that point, both the US and UK governments simply ignored the matter while the corporate media continued to scream "You are all tin-foil hat wearing KOOKS!"

Britain says its pilots conducted Syria air strikes

British pilots have taken part in air strikes against Islamic State militants in Syria, the defence ministry said on Friday, angering some lawmakers who two years ago refused to back military action there.

The ministry said pilots had taken part in Syrian missions on behalf of its allies, the United States and Canada, and were "effectively operating as foreign troops".

Prime Minister David Cameron, who knew of the pilots' role, failed to get approval from lawmakers in 2013 for military action in Syria. Britain conducts regular attacks in neighbouring Iraq.

"There is an element of sophistry going on here ... at the very minimum, an insensitivity to parliament's will," John Baron, a lawmaker from Cameron's Conservative Party, told BBC radio.

Iran’s Long-Game Diplomatic Strategy

Iran has sought negotiations with the U.S. for two decades, but both Democratic and Republican administrations favored hostility demanded by Israel and Saudi Arabia.

Now that Iran nuclear deal is completed, the attention of Western news media and political commentators is predictably focused overwhelmingly on the opposition to the agreement within the U.S. Congress and from Israel and the Saudi-led Sunni Arab coalition.

That media lens misses the real significance of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which is that Iran succeeded in negotiating an agreement with the United States that upheld its national right to a nuclear program despite the obvious vast disparity in power between the two states. That power disparity between the global hegemon and a militarily weak but politically influential regional “middle power” has shaped not just the negotiating strategies of the two sides during the negotiations but, more importantly, how they came about in the first place.

A Welsh town is enjoying a huge spike in sales after all four central parking meters were destroyed.

Retailers in Cardigan, a coastal town in Wales popular with tourists, have claimed profits spiked by as much as 50 per cent after thieves smashed the town’s four parking meters.

The local council’s struggle to find the £22,500 needed for repairs is being greeted with delight by local shoppers and retailers.

“It demonstrates what we’ve been saying for years: if you have lower parking fees, or even no fees, then people will come into town,” Martin Radley, current chairman of Cardigan Traders told the MailOnline.

The World Rebukes Netanyahu

In a rare rebuke to his bullying, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu failed to stop the United States and five other world powers from reaching an agreement to constrain but not eliminate Iran’s nuclear program. Yet, Netanyahu still is dominating how the U.S. public and congressional debate is being framed, with Iran accused of regional “aggression” in four countries.

There is little truth and much exaggeration to Netanyahu’s depiction of what is going on in the Middle East. Yet, the U.S. mainstream media mindlessly reprises Netanyahu’s falsehoods...

Netanyahu’s reference to “Iran’s aggression,” which is now becoming a conventional-wisdom talking point in Official Washington, was curious since Iran has not invaded another country for centuries. In 1980, Saddam Hussein’s Iraq – at the urging of Saudi Arabia – invaded Iran. But Iran has not invaded any of the four countries that Netanyahu cited.

US/Israeli/Saudi ‘Behavior’ Problems

There is a madness in how the mainstream U.S. media presents the world to the American people, a delusional perspective that arguably creates an existential threat to humanity’s survival. We have seen this pattern in the biased depiction of the Ukraine crisis and now in how Official Washington is framing the debate over the Iranian nuclear agreement.

In this American land of make-believe, Iran is assailed as the chief instigator of instability in the Middle East. Yet, any sane and informed person would dispute that assessment, noting the far greater contributions made by Israel, Saudi Arabia and, indeed, the United States.

The larger issue for the American people is what to do with this insane political-media system that dominates Official Washington. Either these powers-that-be are detached from reality or they are deceitful propagandists who think they can manipulate us with lies and distortions.

A Review of GAZA WRITES BACK — Gary Corseri

I have sometimes thought that if wars could be shown in slow-motion, we could put an end to this barbarism that gives the lie to all claims of “civilization” and “humanity.”

GAZA WRITES BACK is one of those very rare books that depicts war in slow motion.

The 23 stories here, written by 15 young authors (from late teens to early 30s, all but three female) were compiled to commemorate the 5-year anniversary of “Operation Cast Lead”—the name Israel gave to its 2008-2009 campaign to once more (but not finally) “mow the lawn” in Occupied Palestine—mostly, in this case, in Gaza.

It is a book that vivifies and personalizes the horrors, but also adumbrates the gnawing losses, the indelible memories.
