Tory bankers - hypocrites and thieves

How does privileged prime minister David Cameron have the nerve to tell company directors that “put simply—it’s time Britain had a pay rise”?

This is the man who has pushed austerity and caused the longest fall in living standards since the Victorian age.

As prime minster he has continued to freeze the pay of public sector workers year after year.

Vicar sin-binned: ‘Anti-Semitic’ 9/11 conspiracy cleric banned from social media

A Church of England vicar who shared an article on Facebook which blamed Israel for the 9/11 terror attacks has been banned from social media after being accused of anti-Semitism.

Reverend Dr Stephen Sizer has been ordered by the church not to write, blog, tweet, email, preach or teach about the situation in the Middle East.

He has also agreed to stop using social media entirely, including his blog, for six months. There is no guarantee he will be allowed to use social media after this period.

Sizer, who is vicar of a parish in Surrey, has agreed to offer his resignation to the Diocese of Guildford in the event he breaches the conditions of his ban.

US-Israel and Armageddon

The nature of the sickness that underpins Zionism is a prime cause for a chaotic world. Hastening a nuclear doom for the glory of the Third Temple is psychotic, unwarranted and certainly un-American.

All those ‘faithfully challenged’ love their celebrated dispensationalist saint. But what about the remaining secular nut cases that run to the defense of that despotic state that claims to be a democracy? “O, woe is me, To have seen what I have seen, see what I see!” – yes we are all Hamlets when it comes to being exploited by the propagandists of perdition.

How many misguided trolls from the Amen ‘Christian Zionists’ Corner will rally to the cause of peace as the plow shears are sharpened for the inevitable long awaited Armageddon? Now don’t misinterpret the historic reality that the powers in the New World Order are bent on a final showdown.

Madame Merkel: Between Munich, Moscow, Washington and Minsk — Jet-setting for Peace or Propaganda?

Madame Merkel attended on 6 February the 6-7 February NATO security Conference in Munich. Then, not listening to what Mr. Lavrov had to say to the conference on 7 February, she jetted with ‘General’ (as in Napoleon) Hollande of France to Moscow to meet ‘urgently’ with Mr. Putin on 7 February to initiate new peace / truce talks on Ukraine. Keeping the results largely under wraps, not to divulge to her own people or the rest of Europe, she stopped briefly over in Germany where she finally talked to Sergei Lavrov, before jetting on to emperor Obama for reporting and consulting.

Madame Merkel, regardless of the tenor and contents of your discussion in Washington, it is up to you, whether you want to lead Europe out of her conundrum – of her wavering between prosperity and submission – between war and peace

Israel’s insolence to Obama may rebound on it

The crisis has been building for six years. Barack Obama arrived at the White House just as Israel elected one of the most right-wing governments in its history, led by Benjamin Netanyahu. At their first meeting Mr Obama reportedly told his Israeli counterpart “not one more brick”.

Mr Netanyahu soon defied the president, and has been doing so ever since.

By taking on the president, Mr Netanyahu risks smashing Washington’s political consensus on Israel and exposing the American public for the first time to a debate about whether Israeli interests coincide with US ones.

The very rift he is fostering with Mr Obama is likely to rebound on him strategically too. He is giving Tehran every incentive to sign an accord with the western powers, if only to deepen the fracture between Israel and Washington.

Another dubious Islamic State video, more foreign policy folly

The world has been sleepwalked into a handful of senseless wars in the Middle East that have served no other purpose than to fatten the pockets of Western war profiteers and strengthen the Israeli regime’s position in the region.

And we can’t seem to find a way off this deadly trajectory towards doom.

The slickly made video begs a few questions. Who produces IS’s videos for them? Rag-­tag militants simply don’t have the technical prowess required for IS’s latest execution flick. Where do they get the money to finance these projects? How do they have time to make such videos amidst an insurgency against the Syrian regime? And how do they shoot these highly choreographed videos while they allegedly dodge Western coalition airstrikes?

2,000 UK troops, RAF spy plane bound for Jordan to combat ISIS

The UK will send 2,000 specialist troops and a spy plane to Jordan to aid its efforts to defeat the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL), a government source has revealed.

The decision follows criticism from the Commons Defence Select Committee that the UK was not committing sufficient troops or resources to the area.

An initial group of 60 military planners will join a coalition HQ in Jordan, which will be used to co-ordinate support of Kurdish and Iraqi troops, followed by a further 2,000 who will mainly act in a training capacity, the source told the Express.

The UK’s increased involvement follows Jordan’s decision to extend airstrikes from Syria to Iraq.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This situation is escalating exponentially, and I have to wonder: will the RAF be bombing ISIS infrastructure, or that of the Syrian government, in order to "soften Syria up" for a UK/US/Jordanian ground strike in order to achieve regime change here?!?

Only time will tell, but I am seeing a massive increase in military activity in Iraq and beyond.

Old people auctioned off to care homes on the internet: Anger over 'cattle markets for grannies' as councils accept lowest bids to save cash

The elderly and disabled are being ‘put up for auction’ by local councils on ‘eBay-style’ websites, with care firms then bidding to offer them a bed. At least a dozen local authorities are listing vulnerable people’s details – including their age and what care and medication they need – before inviting bids from care homes in the area.

What Veterans Think When the Media Gets it Wrong

Aside from Mr. Williams’ character and credibility being called into question, some are questioning whether today’s media is more about storytelling and less about reporting the facts and truth.

Brian Williams, the NBC Nightly News anchor, is taking some heat for “misremembering” an event in Iraq that took place in 2003. According to his original version of events, he was aboard a helicopter that was downed by an RPG. Last week, he recanted that version only after several soldiers who were involved called into question Mr. Williams’ version of events.

He apologized for his false statement and NBC is now launching an internal investigation.

Chilcot report will be 'devastating' says No 10 as it emerges THIRTY are in the firing line of heavily critical Iraq Inquiry... and Blair's secret letters to Bush to be revealed in full

Thirty people, including Tony Blair, are set to be heavily criticised by the Chilcot Inquiry in its ‘devastating’ attack on the Iraq War.

Well-placed sources say that ‘approximately 30’ people have been sent letters by chairman Sir John Chilcot warning them that they will be criticised in his report into the 2003 invasion.

They include the former Prime Minister and ex-Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, as well as a host of other Labour politicians, Whitehall mandarins, diplomats and intelligence officials.

The Mail on Sunday understands that Chilcot’s million-word report on the conflict is ‘largely finished’.

Europe Wary of US ‘All Options’ Threat to Russia

The latest peace bid from Merkel and Hollande engaging Putin without the Americans involved is a clear sign that Europe is becoming increasingly wary and despairing of Washington’s drive for war.

The Ukraine crisis dominated the weekend’s Munich Security Conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel playing host to European and American leaders, as well as Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. Merkel had just returned from Moscow where she reportedly had a four-hour meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin along with French leader Francois Hollande.

The BBC reported that Merkel, Hollande and Putin were “upbeat” on the latest tripartite peace efforts succeeding. Well, “upbeat” may be a bit premature, if the Americans have anything to do with it.

Parents branded child abusers by NHS 'bullies'... simply for refusing a heel prick test on their newborn baby

It should have been the most joyous moment of their lives, one they would look back on fondly for years to come.

But for Tony Shepherd and his Polish fiancee Viola, the weeks after the birth of their baby were filled with disbelief, followed by desperation and finally outright terror – when a small act of perfectly legal defiance led the NHS to brand them child abusers.

The couple could never have imagined that their refusal to have a simple heel prick test for their son would escalate into a full-blown investigation by midwives, social workers and even the police; or that before their son Charlie was even three weeks old, he would have to endure two intimate internal examinations.

Farewell Magna Carta: the Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill

A new law being rushed through Westminster with little scrutiny is a direct attack on our freedom.

The Counter-terrorism and Security Bill currently going through Parliament, with virtually no opposition, impinges on basic freedoms and seems calculated to entrench the treatment of British Muslims as non-citizens.

New report lays bare the scandal of lobbyists

Lobbyists can take advantage of nearly 40 loopholes that can “open the door to corrupt activity” in British political institutions, according to a report by Transparency International UK (TI UK) today.

Published to coincide with the fifth anniversary of David Cameron’s warning that “lobbying is the next big scandal waiting to happen”, TI UK said British citizens still “have little opportunity to understand who is lobbying whom, for what purpose and with what funds”. Britain has the world’s third biggest lobbying industry, worth an estimated £2bn.

Feb 07 13:45

Netanyahu’s Speech and the Politics of Iran Policy

Netanyahu’s approaching speech to Congress is a reflection of the increasingly open interference in US politics by Israel and its political forces in the United States.

The Obama administration has made it clear that it would veto such new sanctions legislation, arguing that it would leave the United States with no options except the threat of war. That argument prevailed in the Senate earlier, and the administration may well be able to use it again to defeat the Israeli effort to sabotage the negotiations through sanctions legislation. But there are more battles to come.

What Is ISIS Thinking? Deconstructing the Pilot Immolation Video

This execution video is merely the latest entry in a propaganda war that, like it or not, ISIS appears to be winning.

What is ISIS thinking? This week’s release of a video depicting the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria’s (ISIS) burning alive of a captured Jordanian pilot — a grisly, shocking execution — has many in the West wondering if the self-proclaimed restoration of the Islamic caliphate has lost its collective mind.

Certainly there is something novel about this cruelly medieval killing being presented using the latest modern technology, filled with high-resolution cameras and disseminated via social media outlets backed by billion-dollar corporations.

The Dangerous Stupidity Behind ‘American Sniper’ Jingoism

American jingoists have turned the truth abruptly on its head.

Thirty-two million dollars. That’s the obscene amount of money North American moviegoers spent this past Super Bowl weekend to see the new film ‘American Sniper.’

According to The Inquisitir website, the Clint Eastwood movie “is now the highest grossing war movie of all time at the domestic box office, surpassing Steven Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan.” The Iraq war blockbuster has earned over $300 million since its release in November 2014.

If these numbers tell us anything, they speak to the seemingly irreversible degeneration of intelligent or critical thought among the populations of the United States and Canada, where American Sniper has made the brunt of its profits. The fact that millions of people paid money to have their heads filled with American war propaganda highlights a deep-seated dysfunction within society that is cause for concern.

Police carrying guns on routine call outs, including tens of thousands of minor incidents of burglaries and even car crashes

Police are carrying guns to tens of thousands of burglaries, car crashes and minor incidents each year, it has emerged.

Armed police are being dispatched to domestic incidents and other routine jobs by most forces across England and Wales, according to information released under Freedom of Information laws.

Thames Valley Police deployed officers with handguns to 8,709 routine call-outs in the last year alone. These make up the majority of work for many of the country’s 6,000 armed officers.

Despite the deployment of armed police being routine in England and Wales, the practice is shrouded in secrecy.

NHS boss pocketed £155,000 by retiring for just 24 hours: She quit, cashed in pension, then got her job back!

An NHS chief who tried to gag a whistleblower has claimed an extra £155,000 by ‘retiring’ for just 24 hours.

Sue James, 58, used a loophole to bank the tax-free bonus as her Trust declared millions of pounds in losses.

She was then rehired a day later to continue earning her salary of almost £200,000 a year.

The executive – who once offered £250,000 of public money to silence a surgeon who spoke out about poor patient care – was last night branded ‘morally reprehensible’.

She faces being investigated by watchdogs and could be fired under new laws, if found to have been involved in ‘serious misconduct or mismanagement’. Incredibly, she has refused to apologise or hand back the money, maintaining she is ‘fully entitled’ to the payout.

THE PAEDOFILE: TRIBUNE UNEARTHS MILITARY INTELLIGENCE SPOOK WHO SUPPLIED NAMES FOR DICKENS DOSSIER.

In a sensational piece for the latest edition of Tribune, a major blow is dealt to those who dismiss perversion whistle-blower Geoff Dickens as a fantasist. The post, by left-wing journalist Andrew Rosthorn, adds compelling evidence to support the Havers cover-up, while partially agreeing that – as so often happens in this field – Dickens made little distinction between under-age sex and paedophilia. But in getting MI5/MI6 operative Tony Holland (left above, now a wealthy Australian stock market investor) to go on the record as the man who furnished names for the maverick Tory MP’s dossier, Rosthorn has scored something of a coup in the serious investigation of Westminster deviants.

Plans for decommissioning giant North Sea field advance

ROYAL Dutch Shell has unveiled plans for decommissioning one of the biggest fields in the North Sea in a landmark move that should provide a major boost to the Scottish economy in coming years.

The oil and gas giant is launching a public consultation on removing one of the production platforms used on the massive Brent field north east of Shetland. This is a key step in the process for removing the production facilities for the field, which is expected to last more than 10 years and involve an outlay of billions of pounds.

Shell will have to remove four production platforms, 60 miles of pipelines and plug 140 wells on the field.

The size of the facilities means this will be the largest decommissioning project Shell has completed in the North Sea.

Yet another blow for child abuse inquiry after it's revealed that the Home Office coached 'independent' experts about how to answer 'difficult questions'

The troubled inquiry into historic child abuse is facing fresh criticism after it emerged that panel members were told what to say to MPs by a long-serving Home Office official.

Experts and abuse survivors were given a 23-page document advising them how to answer ‘difficult questions’ when they appeared before a high-profile committee, prompting fears that the huge Government-ordered investigation is not independent.

It can also be revealed that the woman in charge of administration for the inquiry was seconded from the Home Office, where she has worked for 36 years – even though the department is at the centre of many of the allegations of cover-ups and VIP paedophile rings.

Bank of England chief 'delusional' to claim UK escaped debt trap - economist

Mark Carney’s claim that Britain has escaped a “debt trap” common to Eurozone states has been dismissed by UK economist Michael Burke as “delusional.” Burke says Britain's debt has merely been transferred from private firms to UK homeowners.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When all the currency is loaned into circulation at interest, there is no escape possible from the debt trap. Britain should remember that the United States fought a revolution against Britain to break free of the Bank of England's predatory practices.

"The refusal of King George 3rd to allow the colonies to operate an honest money system, which freed the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, was probably the prime cause of the revolution." -- Benjamin Franklin

Abiding We ‘Give, Give and Give’ And They Still Don’t Like Us

I am puzzled by Lipman and other British Jews who express similar views. Jews settled in this country in the late 19th century. But it seems that more than a century or about 4 generations have not been sufficient for British Jews to feel themselves an integral part of this country. They give up on this kingdom quite easily. Lipman is threatening to leave us and 58% of British Jews do not see future in Britain.

British document: Israel initiated Entebbe hijack

In the document, written on 30 June 1976 when the crisis was still unresolved, DH Colvin of the Paris Embassy wrote that according to his source, "the hijack was the work of the PFLP, with help from the Israeli Secret Service, the Shin Bet.

"The operation was designed to torpedo the PLO's standing in France and to prevent what they see as a growing rapprochement between the PLO and the Americans."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel literally created the Entebbe hijacking, and used this false-flag attack to trick the world into seeing the Palestinians as evil.

THE BOMBING THAT STARTED IT ALL!

Menachem Begin planned the destruction of the King David Hotel and the massacre of Deir Yassin. Ex prime minister, Shamir, was originally a member of the Jewish "terrorist" gang called Irgun, which was headed by none other than Menachem Begin. Shamir later moved over to the even more radical "Stern Gang," which committed many vicious atrocities.

Shamir himself has defended the various assassinations committed by the Irgun and Stern gangs on the grounds that "it was the only way we could operate, because we were so small. So it was more efficient and more moral to go for selected targets." The selected moral targets in those early days of the founding of the state of Israel included bombing of the King David Hotel and the massacre of Deir Yassin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel was created with a false-flag attack; the July 2, 1946 bombing of the King David Hotel, then being used to house British administration officials. Although carried out by Israelis, the Palestinians were framed for the "terror" attack, to turn the British against the Palestinians! Keep this history of Israel in mind when evaluating Paris, or anything else that goes "bang" and is then blamed on Muslims.

FLASHBACK - Serb TV station was legitimate target, says Blair

Nato leaders yesterday scrambled to justify the bombing of Serbia's state television station in an attack which killed a number of civilian workers and marked a further widening in the scope of targets now considered legitimate.

The attack on the building in the centre of Belgrade - which contradicted an apparent assurance by Nato this month that only transmitters would be hit - was condemned by international journalists' organisations, representing both employers and unions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, attacks on Islam-phobic media are BAAAAAAD, but attacks on the other guy's media are GOOOOOOD!

Angry MPs challenge ‘stitch-up’ over delay of Chilcot report on war in Iraq

Furious MPs are planning a parliamentary debate to challenge an alleged “stitch-up” that could delay the report of the Iraq war inquiry until after the general election.

A cross-party coalition has demanded that parliament’s backbench committee allocate half a day to discussing the continuing delay in publishing the Chilcot inquiry’s findings, which are expected to include severe criticism of the UK’s decision to join the US-led invasion in 2003.

Police asked to investigate G4S over Guantanamo role

British security firm G4S could be criminally liable for its involvement in Guantanamo Bay, according to a new complaint filed with the Metropolitan Police.

Legal charity Reprieve, which represents several Guantanamo detainees, has reported the UK company to police after learning of a $113 million (£71 million) contract for G4S to supply ‘base services’ at the US prison through its US subsidiary, G4S Government Solutions (G4S GS). The exact nature of the services to be provided under the contract is unclear, prompting concerns that the company could be complicit in rights abuses under way at the prison, such as force-feeding.

Westminster paedophile ring: Top Tory MP 'murdered girl at vile orgy' claims new witness

The new witness has told police he watched the teenager being taken into a ­terrifying “medical room” by a senior Tory MP – and never saw her again.

The sickening events are said to have taken place at London’s notorious Dolphin Square flats in the 1990s, the Sunday People can reveal.

He fears the teenager may have been killed by a brutal sadist acting out his horrific fantasies.

It would make her the fourth reported murder victim of a Westminster-based pervert ring, some of them household names.

‘Begging’ for help: UK asks US to assist in search for Russian sub off Scotland

Britain’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) has been forced to ask the American military for assistance in searching for a Russian submarine in its territorial waters due to budget cuts.

Two American maritime patrol planes have been conducting searches off the Scottish coast since News Year’s Eve.

The MoD was forced to ask the US for help because of a controversial decision to scrap the Royal Air Force’s (RAF) £4 billion fleet of Nimrod surveillance aircraft in 2010.

The suspected presence of a Russian submarine is believed to be linked to the recent departure of a British nuclear submarine from Faslane naval base at Gare Loch on the Firth of Clyde.

Prince Andrew allegations: Duke of York is not above the law says top Home Office committee

Pressure was mounting on Prince Andrew last night over bombshell claims he slept with a teenage “sex slave”, as a top politician insisted he “should not be above the law”.

The Duke of York emphatically denies allegations he had sex three times with Virginia Roberts, then 17, while she was working for his former close friend and convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

But veteran Labour MP Paul Flynn, who sits on the influential Home Affairs Select Committee, said the royal still had questions to answer.

Professor Yehuda Kosher from Be’er Chosen University, Israel, announced today that he and his team may be close to uncovering the JNA (Jewish DNA) and may be able to isolate the Khazarian Sex Predator (KSP) gene.

Professor Kosher, Israel’s leading evolutionary psychoarcheologist and a renown advocate of applied Eugenics told The Jewish Scientific Daily (JSD) that the apparent physical resemblance between Woody Alan and Alan Dershowitz’s facial features gives new hope for a scientific break through.

Prince Andrew could face a Scotland Yard investigation over sex abuse claims

The Duke of York could face a Scotland Yard investigation into Virginia Roberts’s claims if she makes a formal complaint against him, police sources have confirmed.

Despite the fact that all criminal prosecutions are brought in the name of the Queen, members of the Royal family are not immune from the law.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Much as I like to see Andrew (and Dershowitz) sweat a bit, I am wondering if this is not a variation on the Dominic Strauss Khan gambit by the bankers. Strauss got too close to the issue of the missing gold, and was ejected with a tawdry sex scandal. This story about Andrew and Virginia Roberts actually goes back three years. So why the sudden heating up now?

Britain has been making noises about leaving the EU. Maybe this scandal is being used to blackmail the royals into supporting keeping Britain tangled up in Europe.

The Sovereign Nation of Shetland

It is obviously not in the interests of Scotland or the UK to give Shetland any more autonomy and this campaign is doomed to achieving nothing more than superficial concessions. However, now that the Crown has shown in court that it is unable to produce any proof that Shetland is part of Scotland or the UK, the onus is on our representatives to make sure that the powers they are asking for belong to those they are asking.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a case before the Scottish Courts right now over this uss,e and it will be interesting to see how Scotland, with its recent fight to declare independence from Great Britain, handles the issue that there seems to be no legal proof that Shetland or Orkney are part of Scotland.

Of course, we have the same issue here in Hawaii.

PRINCE ANDREW & JEFFREY EPSTEIN: Can the Palace really make the denial stick?

Prince Andrew’s flat and emphatic denial of any complicity in abuse of a minor in 2001 suggests just how seriously Buckingham Palace is taking the resurfacing allegations about his sex life.

I first posted on this affair just over two years ago. The circumstantial and affidavit evidence now available in a new Court case accusing Jeffrey Epstein of pimping minors for the sexual gratification of himself and others is nothing more than consistent with the charges that sent him to jail four years ago. What remains a mystery wrapped up in socialite privilege is how Epstein managed to spend just 13 months in the poky, when trafficking charges such as those usually carry 10-20 year sentence guidance in US Courts.

Prince Andrew and Alan Dershowitz named in US lawsuit over underage sex allegations

British press reports today that a woman claims that Jewish banker Jeffrey Epstein loaned her to rich and powerful friends as an underage “sex slave.” The woman has alleged in a US court document that she was repeatedly forced to have sexual relations with Prince Andrew and Alan Dershowitz.

The woman, who filed the motion anonymously, alleges that between 1999 and 2002 she was repeatedly sexually abused by Epstein who, she also alleges, loaned her out to rich and influential men around the world.

The British press is obviously interested in developments related to prince Andrew. But I am actually curious to hear what the ethnic cleansing enthusiast Alan Dershowitz has to say in his defence.

Desmond Tutu: ‘Put Tony Blair in the dock for war crimes’

Groomed by the intelligence services from his early college days, he didn’t bat an eyelid while lying to his electorate – and to the world about fictional WMD’s in Iraq, and he dazzled George W. Bush with his alluring pillow talk, used his cozy globalist-appointed positions and high-flying (albeit meaningless) titles to broker deals for JP Morgan investment elite, while he creates wonderous business opportunities on the backs of the world’s poor – he is the world’s most hated man, and he doesn’t drink Dos Equis (but he does drinks Cristal).

Certainly, it’s a charmed life for the man with the fake smile. Recently, 21WIRE reported how he caused a PR meltdown at the international children’s charity, Save the Children, after someone tried to him a “Global Legacy Award” (spooky). The charity are now deeply regretting that move, calling the whole affair ‘a painful experience’.

Two more ministers accused in the VIP child abuse scandal: MP wants Secrets Act lifted to let police speak out

Scotland Yard has been handed the names of two more former Government ministers accused of sexually abusing children.

Campaigning MP John Mann said he was approached last week by a victim who claims to have been abused by the politicians – one a peer – in the 1980s and has passed the detailed allegations to detectives.

The latest phase in his search for the truth about a suspected Westminster child sex ring came as he called for retired detectives to be granted an unprecedented amnesty from the Official Secrets Act to help lift the lid on alleged VIP abusers.

Leaked documents raise new questions over UK complicity in secret US drone strikes

Previously secret documents obtained by Der Speigel – including a ‘Kill List’ that included both Pakistani and Afghan targets – have raised new concerns about British complicity in the US’s covert drone war in Pakistan.

The documents, detailed in an article published yesterday evening, show that NATO and British forces in Afghanistan planned to target and kill individuals that were located across the border in Pakistan. The UK government has consistently denied that it has taken strikes outside of Afghanistan and has refused to confirm whether and to what extent it is involved in the CIA’s covert drone war in Pakistan.

Westminster paedophile ring: Jailed Charles Napier will be told to name VIP abusers

Caged child abuser Charles Napier faces a grilling by detectives who believe he could help expose a network of VIP paedophiles with links to Westminster.

Officers probing claims that span decades think the former teacher – jailed last week for abusing 23 boys – can name Establishment figures including peers, Government ministers, ­civil servants and police.

Napier, 67, was treasurer of the twisted Paedophile Information Exchange, which ­campaigned on behalf of ­paedophiles in the 1970s and 1980s and ­argued that the age of consent should be lowered to FOUR.

Dossiers compiled by ­campaigning MP Geoffrey Dickens and handed to former Home Secretary Leon Brittan in the 1980s were said to contain damning ­evidence about the group.

Redress Online: BBC executive Danny Cohen publicly endorses key Zionist mantra

A senior BBC executive has publicly come out as an advocate of Zionism.

Danny Cohen, who is the director of BBC Television, claimed that anti-Semitism has become so bad that he has to question the long-term future for Jews in Britain.

Danny Cohen, Director of BBC TV

He stopped short of calling on British Jews to emigrate to Israel or of endorsing Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s intention to change the Israeli constitution to define Israel as “the nation state of one people only – the Jewish people – and of no other people”.

A basic tenet of Zionism – and a key principle underlying the foundation of Israel – is that Jews and gentiles are incompatible, that whenever Jews and gentiles mix there will be anti-Semitism and that, therefore, the state of Israel exists as a safe haven for Jews escaping anti-Semitism.

UK police misuse pre-charge bail to ban activists from protesting – report

UK police forces are misusing pre-charge bail by banning hundreds of protestors from attending lawful demonstrations, The Guardian newspaper has revealed. Of all bailed protesters, eighty-five percent are never charged with any crime.

Since 2008 police have arrested at least 855 people in England and Wales and then released them on pre-charge bail, setting a date to return to the police station. Until their return, those bailed were prohibited from attending any demonstration. However, 85 percent, or about 732 people, have never been charged, according to data the Guardian collected using the Freedom of Information Act.

Good will to all men? Shop worker disperses homeless with freezing water, witness says

A shop worker has allegedly hosed homeless people seeking shelter outside a shop front with ice cold water to prevent them sleeping there. Police investigated the incident after a local woman reported the alleged assault on social media.

Tammi-Lee Connor, who lives in Canterbury, says she saw a shop worker at the local Wilkinsons using a hosepipe in an attempt to remove a group of homeless people. The force of the hose reportedly caused one man to fall over and hit his head.

Connor says she confronted the shop worker, who apparently told her: “How else am I expected to move them?” She then phoned the police who arrived at the scene, but didn’t arrest the man.

Wilkinsons deny the worker was ousting the homeless, maintaining they were simply cleaning the shop front.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If true, absoflippinglutely unbelievable!

Where the hell was this man's humanity, to use a hose as "homeless crowd control"?!?

And that Wilkinson corporation defends his actions, attempting to create an alternative narrative when the video was already up?!?!? What were they thinking?!? And to that corporation, when the does "cleaning the shop front" translate into the use of what amounted to a firehose being leveled at homeless people?!?

In the immortal words of my late Grandma Thelma, "the horse was already out of the barn!"

And to some of the local politicos in in Canterbury, with some reasoning ability, please take a look at what some of your brother and sister contemporaries in the state of Utah have been doing. As reported in stateofchange.org:

Utah solved homelessness by giving people homes. In 2005, Utah figured out that the annual cost of E.R. visits and jail stays for homeless people was about $16,670 per person, compared to $11,000 to provide each homeless person with an apartment and a social worker. So, the state began giving away apartments, with no strings attached. Each participant in Utah’s Housing First program also gets a caseworker to help them become self-sufficient, but they keep the apartment even if they fail. The program has been so successful that other states are hoping to achieve similar results with programs modeled on Utah’s. It sounds like Utah borrowed a page from Homes Not Handcuffs, the 2009 report by The National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty and The National Coalition for the Homeless. Using a 2004 survey and anecdotal evidence from activists, the report concluded that permanent housing for the homeless is cheaper than criminalization. Housing is not only more human, it’s economical.

I commend the state of Utah for having had the collective intelligence to resolve its homelessness problem in such a humane way.

The mood of this corrupt closing of ranks to protect one of their own is best caught by the machinations reported today of how the Tory government in 1963 (nothing has changed since) sought to frame Mandy Rice-Davies in order to ‘get’ Stephen Ward because he was about to expose Profumo for lying to Parliament about his affair with Christine Keeler. The Establishment cranked into action. A corrupt Scotland Yard officer had Rice-Davies arrested for a non-existent theft of a rented TV, softened up in prison, and told she would only be released if she testified against Ward. She was subjected to the corrupt bullying of the police, the moralising cant of the prosecutor, and the deep bias of the Old Bailey judge.

Sandra Gives The Game Away: Jobcentres Given Sheriff’s Stars For Hitting Benefit Sanction Targets

Sandra Lambert, manager of 149 Jobcentres and self-styled lifestyle guru, has spent much of the last few days frantically blocking people on twitter who have been taking the piss out of the cringemaking motivational advice she inflicts on the poor bastards who work for her.

She wasn’t fast enough however to hide the tweet in which she awarded a Texas style sherriff’s badge to Jobcentres in the midlands for upholding their DMA decision rate – as spotted by @refuted. A DMA means a referral to a Jobcentre ‘decision maker’ to process a benefit sanction. It is the second time this month a DWP manager has been exposed praising their staff for hitting benefit sanction targets - targets that Iain Duncan Smith’s department have repeatedly claimed do not exist.

Hillsborough officer bullied into signing doctored statement, inquest hears

A senior South Yorkshire police officer bullied a constable to sign a doctored statement about the Hillsborough disaster, the new inquest into the deaths of 96 people at the football ground has heard.

PC Michael Walpole told the inquest that he feared his job would be made “a misery” if he did not sign the amended statement, in which several of his original comments had been deleted, because he had seen other officers hounded out of the police in similar circumstances.

Walpole said that at the time he believed it was “out of order” for his statement to have been doctored, and he initially refused to sign it. He was then required to go to South Yorkshire police headquarters at Snig Hill in Sheffield to meet a chief inspector, Alan Foster, with two other constables, Peter Smith and Maxwell Groome, who were also refusing to sign their changed statements.

But the publication last week of a long-awaited US Senate intelligence report has raised fresh questions about what the UK knew about the CIA’s torture programme – and in particular the role played by an obscure overseas British territory.

Iraq torture claims: New allegations against British soldiers to go to the International Criminal Court

Hundreds of new cases accusing British soldiers of abusing – in many cases torturing – Iraqi men, women and children, aged from 13 to 101, are to be considered by the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Britain is already under scrutiny for alleged war crimes committed by its forces in Iraq. The ICC is currently examining a dossier of claims presented by lawyers and human rights campaigners earlier this year that could lead to a full investigation.

The fresh details come on the eve of the publication of an official report into allegations that British soldiers mistreated and unlawfully killed Iraqis in 2004. The report, to be released on Wednesday, is expected to criticise the abuse of Iraqi prisoners captured after a battle. A number of "warning letters" have been sent to individuals believed to face criticism in the report.

In order to prove that the skeleton really was Richard III, scientists needed to take a DNA sample and match it to his descendants.

Genetic testing through his maternal DNA proved conclusively that the body was the King. However, when they checked the male line they discovered something odd. The DNA did not match showing that at some point in history an adulterous affair had broken the paternal chain.

Britain joins international outcry over CIA torture report

British Prime Minister David Cameron has expressed dismay over a US Senate report describing CIA torture methods of al-Qaeda suspects.

"Let us be clear: Torture is wrong. Torture is always wrong," AFP quoted Cameron as saying at a press conference in Ankara, Turkey, on Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Cameron is trying to act like the good guy here, but Britain was complicit in the torture as well.

Was there a secret Tory conspiracy to get rid of #CameronMustGo?

The Twitter hashtag that caught the imagination of the nation has been unceremoniously retired – despite the fact that it is still being used by thousands of British citizens who have had enough of the man it names, and his government.

That’s right – #CameronMustGo has gone.

It disappeared from Twitter‘s United Kingdom trends an astonishing 16 days after it was launched and – suspiciously – while it was still being tweeted at least once every three seconds [accurate at time of writing].

Users instantly smelled a rat – has Twitter been hacked? Or has it been corrupted by Cameron’s cronies?

The Queen of England Deals Extensively in $17 Trillion Depleted Uranium Trade

GCHQ to snoop through office emails: Anti-spy agency will monitor disgruntled employees in danger of threatening UK security by going rogue

Britain's anti-spy agency is to snoop through office emails in a bid to preempt disgruntled employees threatening the nation's security by going rogue.

The Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) has turned its attention to 'insider' threats within companies - meaning staff gossip and gripes could now be checked for hidden agendas.

The shocking revelation means unusual language or uncharacteristic tones adopted in emails to colleagues could be interpreted as sign that the sender is undermining the UK's security.

A short history of British torture

When the House of Commons was debating how much to increase the time limit for detention without trial the question of torture came up. Officially this was limited to the nice considerations of whether it was all right to send people to places where torture is used and whether Britain can use information collected by the use of torture in other countries. This discussion gave an impression of democratic Britain as the home of civilised behaviour where the very idea of torture is repugnant to our legislators – unlike, say, the US with its secret CIA jails and where Cheney has been labelled the ‘Vice President for Torture’. In reality, the British state has a long history of using and developing a whole range of torture techniques.

Russell Brand joins London anti-eviction march against 'profit-greedy' US developer

Residents of an east London housing estate journeyed to the HQ of a US investment firm on Monday that plans to evict almost 100 families from their homes. Some 400 campaigners subsequently marched to No. 10 to hand a petition to PM David Cameron.

Grandparents, parents and children from Hoxton's New Era estate travelled across London on Monday in a fleet of buses to Westbrook Partners’ offices in Mayfair. Shortly after, hundreds gathered in Berkley Square and made their way to Downing Street as part of a day of protest organised by the New Era residents.

Nuclear Deal With Iran Should Not Be 'Sealed at Any Price': Hammond

High Court will hear case of UK torture and rendition victim

A High Court judge has said that a victim of UK rendition and torture can proceed with his claims against the British Government.

In a judgment handed down today, Mr Justice Leggatt found that the court would be “failing in its duty” if it did not deal with the claims of Yunus Rahmatullah, from Pakistan. Mr Rahmatullah was seized by UK forces in Iraq in 2004 and tortured before being handed over to the US and rendered to Bagram prison in Afghanistan, via the notorious Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. He suffered a further decade of secret US detention before he was finally released in June this year.

The UK long denied any involvement in rendition, before being forced to correct the record in Parliament in 2008, when then-Defence Secretary John Hutton publically admitted that the rendition of Mr Rahmatullah and another man, Amanatullah Ali, had taken place.

The Real Reason Why Germany Halted Its Gold Repatriation From The NY Fed

Or, simply said, generic pretexts for a failure to follow through with the Bundesbank’s original intention of re-domiciling physical gold, especially after Zero Hedge posted in November 2012 proof of collusion between the 1968 Bank of England and the Fed seeking to defraud Deutsche Bank: ‘Bank Of England To The Fed: “No Indication Should, Of Course, Be Given To The Bundesbank…”

The charade ended with a thud in June of this year, when instead of continuing the farce, Germany simply gave up, providing an even more laughable reason why it can no longer even pretend to collect its physical gold located at New York’s 9 Liberty Street.

"Germany has decided its gold is safe in American hands. “The Americans are taking good care of our gold," Norbert Barthle, the budget spokesman for Merkel’s Christian Democratic bloc in parliament, said in an interview. "Objectively, there’s absolutely no reason for mistrust."

In reality, as Helmandis told the New York Times, ‘the Taliban have never been stronger in the province.’ The UK military are fully aware of this, with The Times noting in January 2014 ‘hard-fought territory in southern Afghanistan will fall to the Taliban after British forces withdraw this year, British commanders and military experts believe.’ The report goes on to note there is evidence Afghan soldiers are already patrolling alongside insurgents and quotes a former Special Air Service commander: ‘I will be very surprised if the future Governor of Helmand… is not very closely connected to those who we call the Taliban.’

Britain may begin offering speech licenses to cut down on ‘extremist’ speech

In Britain, if you have extreme views on anything from Western democracy to women’s role in public life, you might soon require a license from the government before you can speak in public. Seriously.

Nearly 350 years after us Brits abolished the licensing of the press, whereby every publisher had to get the blessing of the government before he could press and promote his ideas, a new system of licensing is being proposed. And it’s one which, incredibly, is even more tyrannical than yesteryear’s press licensing since it would extend to individuals, too, potentially forbidding ordinary citizens from opening their gobs in public without officialdom’s say-so.

It’s the brainchild of Theresa May, the Home Secretary in David Cameron’s government. May wants to introduce “extremism disruption orders”, which, yes, are as terrifyingly authoritarian as they sound.

Inside the UN Resolution on Depleted Uranium

On October 31, a new United Nations General Assembly First Committee resolution on depleted uranium (DU) weapons passed overwhelmingly. There were 143 states in favor, four against, and 26 abstentions. The measure calls for UN member states to provide assistance to countries contaminated by the weapons. The resolution also notes the need for health and environmental research on depleted uranium weapons in conflict situations.

This fifth UN resolution on the subject was fiercely opposed by four depleted uranium-shooting countries — Britain, the United States, France and Israel — who cast the only votes in opposition. The 26 states that abstained reportedly sought to avoid souring lucrative trade relationships with the four major shooters.

Ebola screening at Heathrow is blasted as 'a joke' on first day as passengers arriving from Africa reveal: 'We could have walked straight through'

Britain's Ebola screening plans descended into chaos on its first day today after people flying to the UK from high risk countries revealed the checks are not compulsory.

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said airline passengers from West Africa must be checked for symptoms 'to make our country safe' and warned the epidemic could be as deadly as Aids.

He also warned Britain should expect up to ten cases by Christmas as screening of passengers from Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea, where 4,000 have died from Ebola, started at Heathrow.

But travellers at Terminal One this morning said the system is a 'complete joke' because they were either not checked at all, told it was optional or had to seek out medical staff themselves.

Farmers fear fracking could spell financial ruin

Farmers fear they could face financial ruin from government plans to allow fracking beneath their land without compensation, the National Farmers' Union has warned.

Ministers pushing for shale gas exploration cannot take the support of rural communities for granted and are turning farmers against the process by appearing to brush side their concerns, it warned.

The Government is pressing ahead with new laws that would strip people of power to block fracking beneath their property or land. It has insisted no compensation will be paid to individual home and landowners, because they should not be affected by the gas or oil extraction deep beneath them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at nyagainstfracking.org:

As the State rapidly approaches the deadline to decide whether to allow fracking to go forward in New York, residents from across Pennsylvania came forward to tell legislators their stories. New Yorkers Against Fracking also released an ad, which will initially run in the Albany and New York City markets highlighting stories of dead cows and poisoned water. Since fracking began in states outside of New York, there have been numerous reports of water contamination. Studies link fracking-related activities to contaminated groundwater; air pollution; illness, death, and reproductive problems in cows, horses and wildlife; and human health problems. “These stories from Pennsylvania are very alarming,” said Dr. Sheila Bushkin, MD, MPH of the Institute for Health and the Environment at University at Albany. “The perspective of the gas industry fails to show adequate concern for the long-term health and quality of life of people. When you listen to the personal experiences of actual residents of Pennsylvania and other states where fracking has gone forward, you will hear stories of dead cows, pets, sick children, poisoned water and other serious health and environmental problems. These stories confirm our need for much greater research and evidence-based scientific facts.” “My story is not unusual,” said Terry Greenwood, a farmer from Southwestern Pennsylvania. “After my cows drank from a pond that was contaminated by frackwater, 10 of the 19 calves were born stillborn.” “The industry says there are no problems,” said Matt Manning. “Well when the industry came to Northeastern PA, our water turned black and started bubbling. Our kids would cough and choke in the shower. It got so bad that the state required the companies to provide us with deliveries of clean water. But that’s not a long-term solution.”

Actually, in the UK, all fracking should be mandated beneath the homes of all members of the House of Lords and the House of Commons.

It would be very instructive to see how well THEY like it, and what their health costs would be

Russell Brand, who will join us on Saturday, says: Bombing won't work - it is going to make matters worse. It will lead to ground troops going in. That will make matters worse. These kind of operations always make things worse. These are the real lessons from history.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Does anyone have contact information for Russell Brand? I want to get him on my radio show.

David Cameron and Theresa May - Dangerous Nonsense

A bizarre passage, unnoticed in David Cameron's UN speech, could be the first signal of government censorship plans and may lie behind Home Secretary Theresa May's plans announced this week for a clampdown on government designated "extremists" even when they do not advocate violence.

Cameron laid down the new government line in his speech to the UN. "We shouldn't stand by and just allow any form of non-violent extremism". What on earth does this mean? UKIP? Stop the War? Surely one goal of democracy is to persuade potentially violent extremists to become non-violent extremists? And isn't it the role of a democratic government to stand by while the democratic process unfolds.

FLASHBACK - The Lavon Affair: When Israel firebombed U.S. Installations to make it appear attacks were by ‘Muslim extremists,’ and how the US media cover it up

In their 1979 book, The Untold History of Israel, Israeli journalists Jacques Derogy and Hesi Carmel relate that in 1954 Israel’s army intelligence section conceived a plan to attack British personnel seconded to King Hussein’s government in Jordan. The purpose was to sour relations between Britain and Jordan as well as between both Jordan and Britain on the one hand and Egypt, which would be blamed for such attacks.

Shortly afterward, the same Israeli army intelligence organization activated two networks of Egyptian Jews first established in 1948. These young people had been recruited in Egypt, secretly trained in Israel, and then sent back to their homes in Cairo and Alexandria to await orders to carry out acts of sabotage in case of war between Egypt and Israel.
