Now MPs at centre of the expenses scandal get £48,000 golden handshakes

Scores of MPs caught up in the Parliamentary expenses scandal will walk away from the Commons with a £30million payday – courtesy of the taxpayer.

Even after being hit in the pocket by returning money falsely claimed in allowances, most of them will end up with a substantial gain.

On the day they receive their final demand to settle their ‘fines’, the MPs will be given golden handshakes of up to £65,000, with the average lump sum being £48,662.

So 72 of the 73 MPs standing down at the Election after being told to return expenses will be left in credit. Some will be £64,000 better off.

U.S. soldier 'waterboarded his own daughter, 4, because she couldn't recite alphabet'

A U.S. soldier has been accused of 'waterboarding' his four-year-old daughter because she couldn't recite the alphabet.

Joshua Tabor admitted to police that he used the CIA torture technique because he was so angry.

As his daughter 'squirmed' to get away, Tabor said he submerged her face - upwards - three or four times until the water was lapping around her forehead and jawline.

Tabor, 27, admitted to investigators that his daughter was terrified of water and he had deliberately chosen the punishment.

Top British scientist says UN panel is losing credibility

The most important is a claim that global warming could cut rain-fed north African crop production by up to 50% by 2020...

This weekend Professor Chris Field, the new lead author of the IPCC’s climate impacts team, told The Sunday Times that he could find nothing in the report to support the claim.

The revelation follows the IPCC’s retraction of a claim that the Himalayan glaciers might all melt by 2035.

Why Has the FDA Allowed a Drug Marked 'Not Safe for Use in Humans' to Be Fed to Livestock Right Before Slaughter?

How does a drug marked, "Not for use in humans. Individuals with cardiovascular disease should exercise special caution to avoid exposure. Use protective clothing, impervious gloves, protective eye wear, and a NIOSH-approved dust mask" become "safe" in human food? With no washout period?

The same way Elanco's other two blockbusters, Stilbosol (diethylstilbestrol or DES), now withdrawn, and Posilac or bovine growth hormone (rBST), bought from Monsanto in 2008, became part of the nation's food supply: shameless corporate lobbying.

The Next Absurd Terror Ruse: Muslim Women with Exploding Breasts

Joseph Farah’s WorldNetDaily continues to break important news on the New World Order, one-world government, and the North American Union. However, the news website often serves as a propaganda outlet for all manner of neocon nonsense.

Case in point: Farah’s G2 Bulletin, a subscription online newsletter. In the latest edition, Mr. Farah claims we should fear Muslim women because trained surgeons who hate us for our freedom to revel in the Super Bowl and other gladiatorial diversions are implanting explosives in the breasts of Muslim women.

Wadi Fuqeen Palestinians battle Israeli wall - al-Jazeera video report

Palestinians and Israeli dissenters are getting together to fight Israel's plan to build another section of the separation wall in the occupied West Bank.

According to environmentalists, the wall will stop the flow of water to the natural springs and thus threatens to dry out much of the Palestinian land.

They also see the wall - illegal under international law - as a part of long-term Israeli policy to grab more and more Palestinian land in the West Bank.

But the Israeli government says the separation wall is for security reasons, in order to stop Palestinians carrying out attacks in Israel.

It wasn't Muslims who trained their cameras on the WTC prior to the first aircraft impact

With all the 'chatter' out there, from America's so-called intelligence community, to Zionist shills on FOX and CNN, to Israeli war mongers like their CRIME MINISTER Bennie Nuttyahoo warning of another 'al CIA duh' attack, it might be time to look back at some facts.

The next terrorist attack against the USA will be courtesy of the same ruthless mob of liars, thieves, murderers and con artists that pulled off 9/11.
