Blair's 11th hour plea to 'pull back from the abyss': Former Prime Minister ignores advice not to intervene in Labour leadership race and mocks Corbyn's supporters

Mr Blair mocked Mr Corbyn's supporters for embracing the 'politics of parallel reality ... in which reason is an irritation, evidence a distraction, emotional impact is king and the only thing that counts is feeling good about it all'.

'Mad' apprenticeship targets have consigned a generation to low-skill, low-paid duties

So far this year, there have been only 220 new science and maths apprenticeships created at any level, while engineering and manufacturing apprenticeships make up fewer than one in five of the new jobs.

Many of the roles being offered on the Government’s website appear to be little more than traditional school-leaver jobs in clerical, catering and retail work “rebranded” as apprenticeships. There are now apprenticeships in street cleaning, warehouse labouring and shop work.

This allows employers to pay a new 18-year-old worker just £2.73 an hour compared with the national minimum wage for that age range of £5.13. While employers are obliged to pay those staff for the one day a week they spend in academic training, this is more than made up for by the government grants available for taking on apprentices.

2,300 die within year of being declared ‘fit for work’ by DWP

More than 2,300 people have died within a year of being found “fit for work” by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), analysis of new data has shown, outraging campaigners.

Fake Housing Market, Fake Stock Market and Fake Millionaires

“One in 65 people is now worth seven-figures after surge in the price of property and stock markets” the newspapers have been crowing. “The number of British millionaires has shot up by 40 per cent in the past five years”. We are all being led to believe that a “Surge in property prices and stock markets means there are now 715,000 millionaires in the UK alone”. Not only does this make the other 63,385,000 feel left out of this boom in inequality, it is also inaccurate, misleading and bathed in exaggeration.

Clinton secrets hacked by spy in bag

THE MI6 spy found dead in a holdall had illegally hacked into secret data on Bill Clinton, The Sun on Sunday can reveal.

Gareth Williams, 31, dug out the guestlist for an event the former American president was going to as a favour for a pal.

The codebreaker — who had breached his security clearance — handed the list to the friend, who was also to be a guest.

MI6 bosses raged over the data breach amid growing tensions with US security services over Mr Williams’s transatlantic work.

Today, just over five years since his body was found inside a padlocked bag, his death remains one of Britain’s most mysterious unsolved cases.

The Sun on Sunday can reveal that voicemail messages Mr Williams left for family and pals were deleted in the days after his death.

House of Lords employing low-paid staff on zero-hours contracts

Up to 30 catering staff and 29 parliamentary reporters are on the contracts which employ staff on a ‘no work, no pay’ basis. ‘Zero-hour’ or casual work contracts do not guarantee a minimum number of hours for staff or basic employment rights such as sick pay and paid redundancy. They have been criticised by campaign groups as enabling employers to exploit staff.

Cameron Ennobles Director of British Israel Lobby

There is currently a petition on the House of Commons website that demands the arrest of Netanyahu should he try to visit the UK in September. This petition is now expected to reach 100,000 signatures within the next few days.

However, notwithstanding the strength of feeling in the UK against Israeli brutality, Cameron has stunned British voters by proposing to ennoble the director of the British Israel lobby that condones the illegal settlements and the brutal killings by the IDF.

This perverse decision would mean, if ratified, that effectively, an agent of the Israeli government in Tel Aviv would be sitting in the House of Lords, in London – in the second chamber of the British Parliament.

That is a position that would be deemed anti-democratic at best and unacceptable to those who require our legislators to hold an unequivocal allegiance exclusively to the democratic institutions of the United Kingdom.

UN investigating British Government over human rights abuses caused by IDS welfare reforms

The UN is to visit the UK to investigate whether Iain Duncan Smith’s welfare reforms have caused “grave or systematic violations” of disabled peoples’ human rights, it has been reported.

Adam Ant's father dragged into VIP child abuse probe: Alfred Leslie Goddard was jailed for preying on runaway boys nearly 30 years ago

The father of pop star Adam Ant has been linked to shock allegations that VIP paedophiles including top politicians raped and murdered children in Westminster.

Alfred Leslie Goddard, whose son had a string of chart hits in the 1980s, was jailed for preying on runaway boys nearly 30 years ago.

The former council porter was a member of a gang that included Britain’s most notorious paedophile, Sidney Cooke, who was later convicted of the sadistic gang rape and killing of a teenage boy and is suspected of murdering many more.

An alarming number of middle class people over the age of 65 are drinking “unsafe” amounts of alcohol and putting their health at risk, experts warn.

The research carried out by academics from the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King’s College London found that one in five adults in Britain are exceeding recommended alcohol levels.

TV licence evader refused to pay because the 'BBC covered up facts about 9/11 and claimed tower fell 20 minutes before it did'

District Judge Stephen Nicholls said: 'This is not a public inquiry into 9/11. This is an offence under section 363 of the Communications Act.'

He said he had difficulty sitting in the magistrates’ court as he 'did not believe he had the power to rule under the terrorism act'.

'I believe the BBC, who are directly funded by the licence fee, are furthering the purposes of terrorism and I have incontrovertible evidence to this effect. I do not use this word lightly given where I am'

He said: 'Even if I accept the evidence you say, this court has no power to create a defence in the manner which you put forward.'

Sentencing, Judge Nicholls said: 'Mr Rooke puts the basis of his defence under Section 15 of the Terrorism Act, effectively asking the court to find the BBC is a terrorist organisation and that if he continues to pay them he himself is committing a criminal offence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Read the comments (now closed). NOBODY believes the official story of 9-11! The judges job is to protect the official story, no matter how silly it makes him look!

Upcoming Labour leader: We should quit NATO, be friends with Russia

Jeremy Corbyn, the British MP and a candidate in the 2015 Labour Party leadership election, criticized the government of the country for its cooperation with the NATO.
Speaking at a live leadership debate, Corbyn claimed that Britain should have quit the alliance long ago.
Beside that, Corbyn believes that his country should definitely develop good relations with Russia. As he noted, that is the only thing that can stop the conflict in Ukraine, "otherwise the consequences are very dangerous."
Jeremy Corbyn added: "I have criticisms of NATO, it's a Cold War organisation and it should have been wound up in 1990 along with the Warsaw pact".

Up to 275,000 workers go into Bank Holiday without salaries as HSBC payments system collapses

Up to 275,000 people were not paid today and went in to the Bank Holiday weekend with depleted accounts after HSBC's payments system failed.

Britain's biggest bank, which has 16million UK customers, has revealed an IT glitch means they have failed to transfer hundreds of millions of pounds on pay day.

Victims complained about being unable to pay their mortgages or not having any money at all and with a three-day weekend looming they are waiting anxiously to hear when they will get their cash.

The fault means that salaries were not transferred from HSBC business accounts to the accounts of employees, including those who bank elsewhere.

Western Democracy Is An Endangered Species On Its Way To Extinction

The British Labour Party no longer represents the working class. Under UK prime minister Tony Blair, the Labour Party became a vassal of the One Percent. The result has been a rebellion in the ranks and the rise of Jeremy Corbyn, a principled Labourite intent on representing the people, a no-no in Western “democracies.”

Corbyn is too real for the Labour Party Blairites, who hope to be rewarded with similar nest eggs as Blair for representing the capitalist One Percent. So what is the corrupted Labour Party doing to prevent Corbyn’s election?

Labour maverick's views revitalising jaded left

For New Zealand students of current affairs, the contest for the leadership of the UK Labour Party involves four names that will mean little - and, in that, they will not be too different from observers of the contest in Britain itself. Yet, the emergence of one of the four candidates - Jeremy Corbyn - as the unexpected front-runner is worth a second look, not least for the lessons it might offer to left-of-centre parties around the globe.

Corbyn is a parliamentary veteran who has spent 32 relatively low-profile years on the backbenches - 11 of them, as it happens, while I was also in Parliament. His reputation is that of an old-fashioned leftie - and he may have skeletons in his cupboard, especially involving his links with suspect overseas organisations.

Webmaster addition: This is ironic because the Anarchist Cookbook itself is a propaganda hoax to sell the idea of domestic terror groups. And for those of you who have a copy, be aware that the recipes for explosives in that book are missing key stabilization ingredients and are intended to blow up in the face of anyone foolish enough to try to make them, to generate "terrorist blows himself up" headlines.

Netanyahu Sidelined As UK Re-Opens British Embassy in Teheran

Binyamin Netanyahu has been left sidelined as UK re-opens its embassy in Teheran in anticipation of renewed diplomatic and commercial ties between these two major world economies and as European firms race for Iranian oil projects worth up to $185 billion.

In the meantime, however, the Israeli government, with zero oil and dependent on imports, has instructed AIPAC, its foreign affairs agency in Washington, to make every effort – including the spending of $20 million – to try to persuade members of the American House of Representatives to overturn the agreed deal between the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany, with Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, regarding a US-led war to "neutralize" Iran for you: thank you, sir, but ABSOLUTELY NOT.

The American people are war-weary, and war-skeptical, to say nothing of having had to shoulder the enormous financial burdens on this country which have been undertaken to fund those debacles which are, and were, Afghanistan, Yemen, Iraq, Libya, and Somalia.

IF Israel feels that Iran MUST be neutralized, American citizens strongly suggest that Israel, which has one of the finest, most modern militaries on the planet (paid for with American tax dollars and nuclear armed) can do the job perfectly well. If Tel Aviv believes that Iran should be attacked, it should be Israelis who fight, die, and are maimed for life; not American military.

We'll just sit back and eat popcorn while you and Iran fight, and see just what Vlad Putin will do at that point; it ought to be a very interesting response, sir, because Russian civilian and military personnel have stated, unequivocally, that if Iran is attacked, Russia will come to its aid militarily.

And were I you, sir, I would not bet against that.

Blair’s 'Illegal' War on Iraq: the Net Widens

The decision to join the US in the invasion of Iraq in 2003 proved controversial, with a complete failure to get international agreement for a UN Security Council Resolution clearly backing the invasion. The UK Prime Minister at the time, Tony Blair, came in for criticism for his close relationship with the – then – US President George W. Bush and there has been pressure ever since to uncover what the two men agreed to do and when.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Downing Street memo tells us what happened. Bush and Blair decided to conquer Iraq and came up with the cock and bull story about nuclear weapons to trick us into throwing the lives of our children into the grinder!

‘Bullying’ – BBC Political Editor’s Bizarre Term For The Public Resisting The Establishment

The BBC's Nick Robinson has made a career out of telling the public what leading politicians say and do; sometimes even what they 'think'. This stenography plays a key role in 'the mainstream media', given that a vital part of statecraft is to keep the public suitably cowed and fearful of threats from which governments must protect us. The 'free press' requires compliant journalists willing to disseminate elite-friendly messages about global 'peace', 'security' and 'prosperity', uphold Western ideology that 'we are the good guys', and not question power deeply, if at all.

But when a senior journalist complains of 'intimidation and bullying' by the public, making comparison's to 'Vladimir Putin's Russia', the mind really boggles at the distortion of reality. Those were claims made by Robinson, the BBC's outgoing political editor, using an appearance at the Edinburgh international book festival to settle a few scores.

Britain’s Labour Party Purge is Underway. Preventing “Supporters” from Voting for Jeremy Corbyn

Kerry-anne Mendoza explains how Labour Party leaders have banned her and many others from voting for Jeremy Corbyn.

The first wave of the UK Labour Party’s purge of registered supporters has begun, and I and many others outside of the Blairite wing of the Labour movement were disenfranchised by our own party on Thursday.

At a little after 5:00 am yesterday, an email arrived in my inbox from Labour HQ.

I read it once, then again. Then I just sat there.

First of all I was embarrassed, like I’d been caught out, even though I’d done nothing wrong. It’s being made out that voting for Jeremy Corbyn in the Labour leadership race is an act of sabotage, rather than an expression of my democratic rights. Once I realized that, I got angry. Really angry. I shared the news on my Facebook page and Twitter, and found that I was far from alone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome to my world, Ms. Mendoza, when Dr. Ron Paul was absolutely prevented from running by a corrupt, bought, Republican Party (NOT that the Democrats are any less corrupt and bought, mind you.)

But to not be able, via the ballot, to pick the individual who most closely understands your concerns and in what direction you would like to see the country move, domestically and internationally, is a slap in the face to those of us who believe in the values of a democratic republic.

AFGHAN OPIUM HARVESTING PROTECTED BY BRITISH OCCUPATION FORCES

The duplicity is in what the Ministry of Defence tell people we are doing, and what we are actually doing. As this photo was taken there was a World Service edition of ‘From Our Own Correspondent’ playing. The particular BBC correspondent, Quentin Sommerville, was ‘embedded’ with British soldiers in Helmand, who were assisting in the destruction of poppy fields. This must raise the question as to why poppy fields on the edge of Bastion’s airfield were protected whilst another farmer’s crop in a neighboring valley was destroyed?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One of the big reasons the US and UK continue to occupy Afghanistan is opium poppy profits.

Karl Marx got a lot of things wrong, but he did say one thing that make sense; all wars are economic in nature.

But I would take Karl one step further by stating, unequivocally, that all wars are banker's wars. Banks loan to all sides, which desperately need money to continue the wars.

And at the end of the day, war is never about freedom, or preserving the "national way", whatever that is supposed to mean. They're all about money, control, greed and profit, and that is why some of our best and brightest youth wind up dead or maimed for life.

What people are given as "justifications" for wars are simply the easiest lies governments think their people will swallow, in order to go to war.

At least here in the US, thank God, we have a war-weary and war-skeptical people, who will demand more than "It's because we said so" of a government attempting to sell yet another military misadventure to their people on the basis of absolute lies.

UK surveillance “worse than 1984,” says new UN privacy chief

The newly appointed UN special rapporteur on privacy, Joseph Cannataci, has called the UK's oversight of surveillance "a rather bad joke at its citizens’ expense," and said that the situation regarding privacy is "worse" than anything George Orwell imagined in his novel 1984. Speaking to The Guardian, Cannataci said: "at least Winston [a character in Orwell's 1984] was able to go out in the countryside and go under a tree and expect there wouldn’t be any screen, as it was called. Whereas today there are many parts of the English countryside where there are more cameras than George Orwell could ever have imagined. So the situation in some cases is far worse already."

Cannataci is also concerned about the routine surveillance carried out by Internet companies as a key part of their business model. "They just went out and created a model where people’s data has become the new currency," he said.

Professor Awarded £250,000 to Study “Vice Epistemology,” Why People Think 9/11 Was An Inside Job

Professor Quassim Cassam has been awarded £250,000 by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) to study what he calls ‘intellectual vices’. The title of his project is ‘Vice Epistemology’.

He believes his research could help to explain how certain claims – for example that 9/11 was masterminded by the US government – are able to gain so much traction.

His findings may also shed light on why some people are susceptible to becoming radicalised in ways that make them potential recruits for extremist organisations such as Islamic State.

Jeremy Corbyn will 'sack' Bank of England governor if they refuse to print free money

Richard Murphy, who is seen as the architect of Mr Corbyn's economic agenda, the so-called 'Corbynomics', warned that there was "no such thing" as an independent Bank of England.

He said that if Mr Corbyn's government wanted to use the cheap money from the Bank any governor who refused to carry out the plan for "people's quantitative easing" should be "on the next plane" out of Britain.

Under the proposal, Mr Corbyn would create a national investment bank to fund infrastructure projects which would issue debt to be bought by the Bank of England - effectively meaning the Bank would fund government spending on housing, energy, transport and other projects.

Mr Murphy said current governor Mark Carney has said it would be possible but other experts have warned the Labour leadership frontrunner’s plans would fall foul of EU laws intended to avoid runaway inflation.

'Welcome to Penis Island': Blundering Scots council left red-faced as Gaelic sign mistake greets ferry passengers to Bute

A BLUNDERING Scots council is welcoming visitors with a Gaelic sign that says "Penis Island".

The sign welcoming ferry passengers to Bute has been in place for at least six years but it has only just come to light that it is missing a vital Gaelic punctuation sign.

The result is that instead of reading "Welcome to the beauty of the Isle of Bute", the sign proclaims "Welcome to the Beauty of Penis Island".

Attacking Jeremy Corbyn will only increase his popularity... especially since he wisely refrains from responding in kind, says PETER MCKAY

A Jeremy Corbyn premiership will see our national debt soaring to £3 trillion, our nuclear submarines sold to Vladimir Putin, Britain kicked out of Nato and the red flag flying from No 10 during ‘1,000 days that destroy Britain’.

This ‘imagining’ by one newspaper feature writer yesterday is merely an exaggerated version of what Corbyn’s leadership rivals, and their supporters, are now claiming.

But isn’t the anti-Corbyn uproar now in danger of increasing his popularity, especially since he wisely refrains from responding in kind?

'Start of a new phase': UK reopens its Tehran embassy after 4-year closure

The British embassy in the Iranian capital of Tehran has been officially reopened by UK Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond, nearly four years after it was closed following a violent attack by a group of activists protesting UK sanctions on Iran.

"Today's ceremony marks the end of one phase in the relationship between our two countries and the start of a new one - one that I believe offers the promise of better," said Hammond after he declared the embassy open again and raised the Union Jack in the residence garden.

According to the foreign secretary, the Iranian-UK relationship “has improved since 2011.”

The US' anti-Iran coalition is crumbling. While the US still tries to make war, the rest of the world starts making deals!

Blairite Labour Plotting Coup to Axe Corbyn

The British Labour Party under the sway of former Prime Minister Tony Blair is plotting to derail Jeremy Corbyn’s bid to win the forthcoming leadership contest.

Such is the fear of Corbyn reinventing the party as a genuine socialist alternative, that Blair and his clique of “party grandees” are aiming to overturn the ballot underway among the rank-and-file members.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just as Trump is severely rattling the establishment in the US, looks like Corbyn has, literally, terrified the UK establishment. Mandy, a Rothschild lackey, has even been 'called out' to discredit Corbyn.

Jeremy Corbyn Better Run Britain Because 7 out of 10 British Jews Think he Shouldn't

A new Jewish Chronicle poll just ahead of Sabbath reveals that “almost seven in 10 British Jews are concerned about the prospect of Jeremy Corbyn becoming leader of the Labour Party.”

Asked how they feel about Mr Corbyn becoming leader, 67 per cent say they are “concerned”, with only 13 per cent responding “unconcerned”.

The Meaning Of Corbyn

Within the context of the old liberal democratic phantasy, the political was thought to be an extension of the people’s will and whims. But this has changed radically within the present post political conditions. In the last four decades, we westerners have been reduced to mere consumers. Our Politicians have evolved accordingly. Politics has morphed into the system that facilitates consumption on behalf of big conglomerates.

Corbyn the symbol has come to embody the general fatigue with this post-political condition -frustration with austerity, endless immoral Zio-con wars, the loss of manufacturing, The Lobby, divisive identity nonsense and cultural Marxism as opposed to Marxism. Corbyn serves as a reminder of the revolution that never happened. He has reminded us that we are one after all.

David Miliband dragged into Hillary Clinton email scandal after it emerges confidential British intelligence was sent to presidential hopeful's private account

David Miliband was dragged into the Hillary Clinton email scandal today, after it emerged that confidential information which he had provided ended up in her unsecured private account.

Mrs Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner for the 2016 presidential election, has come under fire over revelations she had a secret email account as Secretary of State.

She has repeatedly insisted that she did not send or receive any classified information on her private account.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given that the office of Secretary of State involves large amounts of classified data, if Hillary insists she did not use her private server to handle that classified data and never used a US Government server ... then what server WAS she using for classified information?!?

That only one of the huge holes in Hillary's lies!

Louise Mensch blames Corbyn supporters for anti-Semitism - turns out it's her own offensive search history

Former Conservative MP Louise Mensch has faced widespread ridicule after accusing Jeremy Corbyn supporters of anti-Semitism - over Twitter searches that turned out be her own.

Ms Mensch posted a series of screenshots showing what she said were autocompleted twitter searches alongside the name of Mr Corbyn’s fellow Labour leadership contender, Liz Kendall.

The supposedly autocompleted phrases alongside the @lizforleader handle included “nazi” and “Zionist”, which Mensch implied was the work to Corbyn’s supporters.

Crippling court costs force poverty-stricken people to 'plead guilty to crimes they didn't commit'

Poverty-stricken people are being encouraged to plead guilty to crimes they did not commit out of fear they will face crippling costs imposed by new financial penalties, leading lawyers, magistrates and campaigners have warned.

Legal experts have called for an urgent review of the criminal courts charge, which has been compared to “18th-century” forms of justice after being implemented earlier this year.

The new levy was introduced by the former Justice Secretary, Chris Grayling, to make criminals pay for the upkeep of the courts. Because the charge can be up to 10 times higher if someone is found guilty after pleading innocence, critics say it is undermining the justice system by encouraging impoverished defendants to plead guilty even if they have done nothing wrong.

Examining the myths, lies and deception of NHS privatization

These discourses are related and the mainstream views are used to justify and in the hands of some seek to even deny the existence of the expanding role of capitalist businesses, motivated fundamentally by profits, who want the production and distribution of healthcare to be determined by them. While economists advocating privatization argue that markets are more effective at compelling cost efficiency than the government can, critics have responded by pointing to the lack of evidence that markets are more efficient in healthcare. In particular, there are many properties of health services that make it unique compared to commodities that capitalists normally produce.

Jeremy Corbyn will apologize for illegal Iraq War if elected leader

Labour Party leadership frontrunner Jeremy Corbyn says he will issue an apology for the 2003 invasion of Iraq if he is elected.

Corbyn, who posed staunch opposition to the war when Tony Blair led the party, told the Guardian the invasion had been undertaken “on the basis of deception” and planned to issue a formal apology on behalf of the party if he is elected.

BBC’s Nick Robinson condemns abuse during Scottish independence referendum

BBC Political Editor Nick Robinson condemned last year’s street protests against his Scottish independence referendum coverage.

He said British society should not accept “intimidation and bullying” of journalists because of political differences.

Robinson, who will soon leave BBC News to join Radio 4’s Today program, was accused of having a pro-union bias during his coverage of the Scottish independence referendum last September.

Thousands of pro-independence Scots rallied outside the BBC’s Glasgow headquarters to demand Robinson’s resignation last year after the journalist clashed with former first minister Alex Salmond during a press conference over the possible relocation of Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS).

Corbyn likened US troops to IS: Leadership frontrunner compared fanatics' barbarity to Americans in Iraq during TV interview

Jeremy Corbyn compared Islamic State brutality to US military action in Iraq in a TV interview, it emerged yesterday.

The Labour leadership frontrunner called for 'acceptance and understanding' of IS supporters while speaking on Russia Today, the Kremlin-backed broadcaster, in June last year.

He only condemned 'some' of the brutal regime's actions in Iraq, saying: 'Yes they are brutal, yes some of what they have done is quite appalling, likewise what American forces did in Fallujah and other places is quite appalling.'

Let’s Bomb Libya Again

The British prime minister, David Cameron, places great emphasis on how he is regarded by the public at home and internationally. His personal promotion machine is extensive and highly-paid and his staff feed the media diligently with what they imagine to be positive slants on his character and actions (and with carefully selected photographs of his pretty wife). They provide advance copies of his speeches to favoured journalists with the annoying consequence that news broadcasts rarely report what the prime minister has just said on a topic. They are futuristic and use the infuriating phrase “the prime minister will say today that” he will propose something or other.

The left-wing frontrunner said Labour must finally say sorry for the “deception” which took Britain to war in 2003.

And he hinted he may not support extending British military action against Islamic State to Syria in a Parliamentary vote expected next month.

"It is past time that Labour apologised to the British people for taking them into the Iraq war on the basis of deception - and to the Iraqi people for the suffering we have helped cause," Mr Corbyn said in a statement to the Guardian last night.

"Under our Labour, we will make this apology."

Joint British-French Border Force to be Deployed to Calais to Confront Migrant Crisis

British police, including UK Border Force officers, will be deployed to France after Home Secretary Theresa May signed a belated agreement with the French government on the Calais migrant crisis.

The agreement will establish a joint control and command centre, headed up by senior British and French officers, and signals a step up in British involvement in Calais. The unusual feature of the Euro Tunnel project, which effectively pushed the British border forward onto the continent for the first time since the 13th century, has caused friction between the two countries as it has left the French government patrolling the border almost unassisted.

Straight shooting from the UK

Its board includes prominent former Conservative cabinet ministers such as Norman Tebbit and Geoffrey Howe as well as right-wing academics like philosopher Roger Scruton. I was intrigued, therefore, to hear its chairman, Ben Harris-Quinney, announce last week that, ‘the theory of neo-liberal interventionism is bankrupt.’

The context of Harris-Quinney’s remarks was the publication of a new Bow Group report entitled ‘The Sanctions on Russia’.

The Labour Party Turns on the Israel Lobby

Like many of the horrific events surrounding the creation of the state of Israel, the massacre on April 9, 1948 has been quietly dropped down the memory hole. It was a horrific tale of British betrayal and Jewish ruthlessness, and is still too embarrassing for both Jewish elites and the British government.

The Kingmaker

Paul Eisen, until a week ago anonymous as far as most Brits were concerned, is now a kingmaker. The UK Jewish Lobby is convinced, for some reason, that the nature of Eisen’s relationship with Labour’s leading candidate Jeremy Corbyn will determine the future of this country.

As we witness the most important political debate in Britain for generations being hijacked by the Zionist media and ‘Jewish sensitivities’, the time is ripe to ask: who is Paul Eisen?

Eisen has been described by the Jewish press and its acolytes as an ‘anti Semite’ and a ‘holocaust denier’, but peculiarly, no one mentions that Eisen is actually a Jew who sometimes even speaks ‘as a Jew’.

What the Latest Currency ‘War’ is All About

When the US embarks on perennial quantitative easing, that’s OK. When the EU does QE as well, that’s OK. But when the Bank of China decides it’s in the best interest of the nation to let the yuan go down a bit instead of infinitely up, that’s Armageddon.

An internationalized yuan established as a global reserve currency implies a "market-determined" exchange rate policy.

It took the Bank of China to devaluate the yuan on two consecutive days — moving within the 2 percent band that it’s allowed to — for the proverbial global financial banshees to go completely bonkers.

Forget the hysteria. The heart of the matter is that Beijing has stepped on the gas in a quite complex long game; to liberalize the yuan exchange rate; allow it to free float against the US dollar; and establish the yuan as a global reserve currency.

The Social Costs of Capitalism

The public subsidies provided to miners, loggers, and ranchers are as extravagant and as harmful to the public interest as the subsidies that the Federal Reserve and Treasury provide to the "banks too big to fail."

Few, if any, corporations absorb the full cost of their operations. Corporations shove many of their costs onto the environment, the public sector, and distant third parties.

Economists call these costs “external costs” or “social costs.” The mine made its profits by creating pollutants, the cost of which is borne by those who had no share in the profits.

Mandelson's secret 'stop Corbyn' plot: Grandee told Burnham, Cooper and Kendall to all QUIT the Labour leadership race

Lord Mandelson attempted to halt the Labour leadership contest by persuading the other three candidates to quit in order to stop Jeremy Corbyn, it was claimed last night.

The former business secretary is said to have approached Andy Burnham, Yvette Cooper and Liz Kendall privately last week to argue that the party would halt the contest if they all pulled out.

But the 61-year-old Labour grandee dropped the plan after officials warned him the withdrawal of the three mainstream rivals would hand immediate victory to Left-wing favourite Mr Corbyn.

‘Body-in-a-bag’ MI6 spy: Was he killed by secret service after uncovering money laundering?

Fresh revelations relating to his death surfaced Saturday, after a source told the Daily Mail that Scotland Yard officials believe an agent from another secret service broke into his apartment to conceal the evidence.

The new claim alleges that forensic equipment laid down in the flat after Williams’ body was discovered was moved while the building remained under the surveillance of armed police.

Special footplates, which enable detectives to make their way across a crime scene without causing contamination, were repositioned just over a day into the investigation.

After discovering this fact, Scotland Yard officials concluded the building’s walls had been scaled and Williams’ flat had been broken into via the skylight.

Why Israel Is So Concerned About Jeremy Corbyn

Disinformation and propaganda can take the form of omission just as much as straight forward lies and deception. There is no doubt that that all political parties, one way or another, in the past have been staunch supporters of Israel’s illegal actions over Palestine and its people, more particularly, in the offensive of Gaza starting July 2014. British government complicity that enables impunity of Israeli war criminals also profits from the death, destruction and apartheid regime imposed.

Doughnuts and pizzas on the NHS: £116million of gluten-free junk food was handed out in prescriptions in the past year

The NHS is handing out tens of thousands of prescriptions every year for custard creams, doughnuts and pizzas.

Other calorie-rich treats issued to patients on special diets include Italian-style biscotti, cake bars and muffin mixes.

The Health Service spent almost £116million last year on gluten-free products and other foods – twice as much as a decade ago.

The extraordinary figure does not cover manufacturers’ sky-high handling fees, which can reach £40 a time.

NHS rules for prescribing food vary by area, but in general only coeliac disease patients can get gluten-free products.

The huge sums being spent on food come amid an obesity crisis and at a time when the health budget is hugely stretched.

‘Deal or war’: Is doomed dollar really behind Obama’s Iran warning?

This is not just about Iran. It is about other major world economies moving away from holding the US dollar as a means of doing business.

In his drastic prediction of war, one might assume that Obama is referring to Israel launching a preemptive military strike on Iran with the backing of US Republicans. Or that he is insinuating that Iran will walk from self-imposed restraints on its nuclear program to build a bomb, thus triggering a war.

But what could really be behind Obama’s dire warning of “deal or war” is another scenario – the collapse of the US dollar, and with that the implosion of the US economy.

That scenario was hinted at this week by US Secretary of State John Kerry. Speaking in New York on August 11, Kerry made the candid admission that failure to seal the nuclear deal could result in the US dollar losing its status as the top international reserve currency.

What few people know is that the bumbling Chilcot, a retired career civil servant, could, in fact, have greeted Blair as an old friend.

British Jewish MP blasts would-be Labor Party head for ‘anti-Semitic’ ties

A Jewish politician from Britain’s Labor Party said the views of Jeremy Corbyn, the frontrunner to head the party, are cause for “serious concern.”

Ivan Lewis, the shadow, or minority, party cabinet minister who is also a former chief executive of the Manchester Jewish Federation, urged his party not to vote for Corbyn.

“Some of [Corbyn’s] stated political views are a cause for serious concern,” Lewis said in letter to his local party members on Friday, according to the Guardian. “At the very least he has shown very poor judgment in expressing support for and failing to speak out against people who have engaged not in legitimate criticism of Israeli governments but in antisemitic rhetoric.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is actually a good thing. The people of nations around the globe are starting to wake up to the fact that their governments have been subverted or are being subverted by Israel. Netanyahu's over-the-top determination to have his whores in the US Congress derail the Iran P5+1 deal have made it clear to Americans that Washington DC is a puppet ruler for a foreign power, and that is not something Americans take kindly to, as the British may recall from some 230 years ago!

Jeremy Corbyn, the favourite for the Labour leadership, wrote a letter of support for a vicar who was banned from social media and commenting on Middle East issues after he posted a link to an article blaming Israel for the 9/11 terror attacks.

The MP for Islington North claims Reverend Stephen Sizer, who used Facebook to promote the article entitled “9/11 Israel did it” was ‘under attack’ by a pro-Israeli smear campaign.

According to Mail Online, Corbyn wrote to the Church, suggesting Sizer had been victimised for “speaking out against Zionism”. He added: “Reverend Stephen Sizer seems to have come under attack by certain individuals intent on discrediting the excellent work that Stephen does in highlighting the injustices of the Palestinian Israeli situation.”

Labour is walking off cliff with its eyes shut, says Blair: He warns voters not to pick Corbyn 'even if you hate me' as 600,000 take part in leadership poll

Simon Danczuk was the latest MP to call for the contest to be stopped, claiming a quarter of members who have joined in his Rochdale constituency should be struck off. He told LBC Radio that if Mr Corbyn won, the party would face a civil war with many working to oust him ‘from day one, if not before’. Backbench MP Graham Stringer said the level of infiltration meant the election ‘has no credibility’.

Mr Blair spoke out last month to tell supporters whose hearts were with Mr Corbyn to ‘get a transplant’.

Last night he said: ‘The Labour Party is in danger more mortal today than at any point in the over 100 years of its existence. The leadership election has turned into something far more significant than who is the next leader. It is now about whether Labour remains a party of government.’
