On 29 July 2011, Charles Moore said this in The Telegraph:
“People such as the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Prince of Wales like to attack our ‘obsession’ with economic growth. But that is a polite way of saying that most people should have less money… I cannot believe that such well-intentioned gentlemen truly think it is a good thing. What it means is that opportunity contracts: your chances of a job, of owning a house, of a decent pension, of a good start for your children all diminish. It is like living in a room that keeps shrinking. For people born after about 1940, this is an almost completely unfamiliar experience…
Last week, I wrote that the Left’s scornful analysis of how capitalism works was looking pretty good just now. This has led many kind readers to write and point out that THE LEFT ITSELF HAS MADE A MESS OF THINGS, and that free markets, if only they are permitted to work, correct their own errors. These points are right. Adam Smith himself explained exactly how BUSINESSMEN CORRUPTED THE MARKETS he admired. As Mervyn King, the Governor of the Bank of England, said in an interview with me earlier in the year: ‘THE CONCEPT OF BEING TOO IMPORTANT TO FAIL SHOULD HAVE NO PLACE IN A MARKET ECONOMY.’
But the strength of the Left’s analysis lies in its understanding of how the powerful have used liberal-conservative language as a cloak to secure their advantages. THUS ‘GLOBALISATION’, which ought to mean free trade throughout the world, TURNS OUT TO MEAN A SYSTEM IN WHICH BIG BANKS TAKE THE GAINS OF INTERNATIONAL SUCCESS AND TAXPAYERS IN EACH NATION AFFECTED BEAR THE COST OF ANY FAILURE. The banks only ‘come home’ when they have run out of our money. THEN OUR GOVERNMENTS GIVE THEM MORE.
This is why the phrase ‘non-dom’ is so resonant. The true tax situation of the non-dom may, in fact, be more advantageous to our country than it sounds – the non-dom pays tax on earnings within Britain. But the phrase, which implies that you can live here all the time and yet be categorised as not doing so, sounds like proof that THE RICH ARE EXEMPTED FROM THE CONTRACT THAT BINDS ALL OTHER CITIZENS OF ANY DEMOCRATIC NATION. EVEN AS TONY BLAIR AND GORDON BROWN CHANTED THE WORDS ‘THE MANY, NOT THE FEW’, THEY PRIVILEGED AND HONOURED THE FEW AS NEVER BEFORE. It is grimly fitting that THE LABOUR LEADERS WHO THREW OFF CLAUSE FOUR SOCIALISM SHOULD HAVE SECURED WHAT THAT CLAUSE CALLED THE ‘FULL FRUITS’ OF THE INDUSTRY OF THE WORKERS FOR CAPITALISTS WHO THEN GAMBLED THEM AWAY…
There is no money left for a larger welfare state. The squeeze is on. It was fascinating this week to see that only a fraction of those applying for the new incapacity benefit are, when tested, unable to work. Tough times are stripping the pretences away.
So the priorities and incentives are wrong. THEY REFLECT THE PREOCCUPATIONS OF THE ELITE RATHER THAN THE ASPIRATIONS OF THE MULTITUDE. SPENDING ON OVERSEAS AID SHOULD NOT BE ‘RING-FENCED’; LARGE SUBVENTIONS TO THE EUROPEAN UNION, LET ALONE ASSISTANCE TO THE EURO, SHOULD NOT BE PAID… GOVERNMENTS SHOULD NOT BE PREVENTED BY INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTIONS AND TREATIES FROM IMPLEMENTING POLICIES DESIGNED FOR THE PEOPLE WHO ELECTED THEM. ‘HUMAN RIGHTS’ AND EMPLOYMENT LAW SHOULD NOT MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE TO SACK PEOPLE...
Modern governments across the Western world seem to be frightened of the people they govern, rather than on their side. Given the mess they have got us into, I suppose their fear is perfectly rational.”
On 29 July 2011, Mr Justice Royce sentenced Bilal Zaheer Ahmad to 12 years prison, saying:
“You purport to be a British citizen, but WHAT YOU STAND FOR IS TOTALLY ALIEN TO WHAT WE STAND FOR in our country. YOU BECAME A VIPER IN OUR MIDST WILLING TO GO TO AS FAR AS POSSIBLE TO STRIKE AT THE HEART OF OUR SYSTEM…
It is important MPs can hold constituency surgeries without the threat of someone pulling out a knife and trying to kill them. YOU WERE INTENT ON STRIKING AT THE HEART OF OUR DEMOCRACY… This country will not tolerate such threats to its democratic processes.'
The Daily Mail added:
“The IT worker praised 21-year-old university student Roshonara Choudhry as a 'heroine' for stabbing Stephen Timms in east London in May last year. He left a ranting message on the US-based website RevolutionMuslim.com, a day after Choudhry was jailed for life... On Facebook, he wrote:
'This sister has put us men to shame. WE SHOULD BE DOING THIS… Roshonara Choudhry is a heroine. Free Roshonara Choudhry and give her a medal for justice’…
Ahmad called on other Muslims to follow in her footsteps by attacking and killing politicians who had voted to support the war in Iraq. He posted a full list of MPs and provided an internet link to their personal contact details, suggesting constituency surgeries were a good place to 'encounter them in person'… Ahmad also published Islamic writings claiming IT IS THE DUTY OF MUSLIMS TO CARRY OUT VIOLENT JIHAD AND BECOME MARTYRS TO THE FAITH… He posted a link to a YouTube video in which he said: 'My message to the West. YOU ARE ALL GOING TO DIE'…
Police traced Ahmad to his home in Dunstall, Wolverhampton... He told officers he 'shouldn't have let my emotions get away from me' and his comments were 'tongue in cheek'.”
What a shame the judge didn’t take your emotions into account took your words at face value, eh, Bilal?
You know, when you were only being flippant? Ah well, you’ve got twelve, long years to hone your witty Facebook comments. Maybe then some judge or other will find them funny.
On 28 July 2011, Cecilia Malmström, the European Union Home Affairs Commissioner, said this:
“Since the spring, we have seen more than a million people leave everything behind and flee the war in Libya…
EUROPE OWES IT TO THESE PEOPLE, TO ALL REFUGEES, AND TO ITSELF TO UPHOLD THE VALUES OF THE 1951 REFUGEE CONVENTION…
The values enshrined in the Refugee Convention and in other international instruments adopted at approximately the same time, such as the Universal Declaration of HUMAN RIGHTS and the Geneva Conventions on the Law of Armed Conflict, ARE PART OF THE IDENTITY OF EUROPE AND HAVE BEEN BUILT INTO THE STRUCTURE OF THE EUROPEAN UNION. Indeed, the EU itself was born of the desire to prevent the misery of war. HUMAN RIGHTS AND REFUGEE PROTECTION ARE A PART OF ITS ESSENCE…
The EU has acknowledged the importance of demonstrating solidarity with countries in North Africa BUT COULD DO MUCH MORE. Debates in Member States tend to focus on the challenges that people leaving Libya may pose rather than THE POTENTIAL THEY REPRESENT TO ENRICH OUR SOCIETIES…
In terms of the individuals recognized as refugees, approximately FOUR FIFTHS RESIDE IN THE DEVELOPING WORLD. EU countries granted refugee status or another form of protection to approximately 74,000 people last year. By contrast, there are approximately 400,000 refugees in a single set of camps in Dadaab, Kenya – a number which grows by an estimated 1,300 to 1,500 people a day in light of THE CRISIS IN SOMALIA. THE EU CERTAINLY HAS THE CAPACITY TO ENLARGE ITS SHARE OF RESPONSIBILITY FOR REFUGEES AND ASYLUM SEEKERS.
At present, a truly common asylum system remains elusive, as significant differences persist among Member States in their reception and treatment of asylum-seekers. In 2010, asylum seekers from Iraq had a 49 percent likelihood of obtaining international protection in France, a 56 percent chance in Germany, and less than a 2 percent chance in Greece or Ireland. A system that treats asylum claims so disparately is far from complete. THE 60TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE REFUGEE CONVENTION, WE HOPE, WILL GIVE IMPETUS TO THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A TRUE COMMON EUROPEAN ASYLUM SYSTEM. THE NEW EUROPEAN ASYLUM SUPPORT OFFICE IS EXPECTED TO CONTRIBUTE MEANINGFULLY IN THIS REGARD...
EUROPE COULD ALSO DO MUCH MORE IN TERMS OF RESETTLEMENT. Resettlement is the process, through which refugees are permanently relocated, USUALLY FROM LESS DEVELOPED COUNTRIES, TO NEW COUNTRIES OF PERMANENT RESIDENCE, MOST OFTEN IN THE DEVELOPED WORLD. Refugees are resettled when they cannot safely remain in their countries of first asylum or have no prospect of finding a lasting solution there…
ACCELERATION OF AN EU-WIDE RESETTLEMENT PROGRAM AND A MORE ROBUST INTAKE, INCLUDING BY OFFERING ADDITIONAL PLACES AND EXPEDITING DEPARTURE PROCEDURES FOR THOSE AWAITING RESETTLEMENT FROM THE TUNISIAN AND EGYPTIAN BORDER AREAS WITH LIBYA, WOULD PROVIDE WELCOME EVIDENCE OF AN INCREASED COMMITMENT TO INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY AND RESPONSIBILITY SHARING.”
You know the “more than a million people” who were forced to “leave everything behind and flee the war in Libya”, Cecilia?
Well, they will be going back now that the lovely, fluffy rebels have won the day, won’t they?
Cecilia? CECILIA? They will be going back now, surely!
Thing is, Cecilia, we, the indigenous white folks of the European continent, don’t want any more lovely, fluffy foreigners piling in on top of us. If Libyans, Somalians and Kenyans find life at home with their own kind unbearable they should seek refuge somewhere else in Africa, with people whose cultures resemble their own, they shouldn’t come here.
But you Trots all know that, don’t you? The purpose of the importation of the third world is to destroy the first one. The one made by Whitey.
F*** you, Cecilia. You’re the enemy of every half-decent European. There aren’t many in this country who don’t know what you EU trough-gobblers are all about now. Your time is running out, lady. Enjoy your foreigner-first philosophy while you can.
It won’t be in place much longer.
On 28 July 2011, Rebecca Camber said this in The Daily Mail:
“Islamic extremists have launched a poster campaign across the UK proclaiming areas where Sharia law enforcement zones have been set up. Communities have been bombarded with the posters, which read:
‘YOU ARE ENTERING A SHARIA-CONTROLLED ZONE – ISLAMIC RULES ENFORCED.’
The bright yellow messages daubed on bus stops and street lamps have already been seen across certain boroughs in London and order that in the ‘zone’ there should be ‘NO GAMBLING’, ‘NO MUSIC OR CONCERTS’, ‘NO PORN OR PROSTITUTION’, ‘NO DRUGS OR SMOKING’ AND ‘NO ALCOHOL’.
Hate preacher Anjem Choudary has claimed responsibility for the scheme, saying he plans to flood specific Muslim and non-Muslim communities around the UK… Choudary, who runs the banned militant group Islam4UK, warned:
‘We now have hundreds if not thousands of people up and down the country willing to go out and patrol the streets for us and a print run of between 10,000 and 50,000 stickers ready for distribution.
We are going to go to all these same areas and implement our own SHARIA-CONTROLLED ZONES. This is the best way for dealing with drunkenness and loutishness, prostitution and the sort of thug life attitude you get in British cities. THIS WILL MEAN THIS IS AN AREA WHERE THE MUSLIM COMMUNITY WILL NOT TOLERATE DRUGS, ALCOHOL, PORNOGRAPHY, GAMBLING, USURY, FREE MIXING BETWEEN THE SEXES – THE FRUITS IF YOU LIKE OF WESTERN CIVILISATION. WE WANT TO RUN THE AREA AS A SHARIA-CONTROLLED ZONE AND REALLY TO PUT THE SEEDS DOWN FOR AN ISLAMIC EMIRATE IN THE LONG TERM…
We are going to put the events in Oslo on the agenda. We are going to be marching and addressing this issue. It is a whole new scenario now. The Muslim community needs to be vigilant. There is an undercurrent against Islam. I do believe a Norway-style attack could happen here’…
Women in parts of East London including Tower Hamlets have been threatened with VIOLENCE AND EVEN DEATH BY ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS IF THEY DID NOT WEAR HEADSCARVES.”
On 27 July 2011, the Deutsche Welle website quoted 72-year-old Brian Leake, a former soldier who acted as unwitting guinea pic in a 1958 A-bomb trial, thus:
“I looked out of the window and there was a huge tent. It had a poster across it which said 'Christmas Island Airways'. And nobody was wearing anything other than a pair of shorts and a pair of sandals... They said: 'Turn and face away from ground zero. Raise the collar of your shirt, roll down your sleeves, sit down on the ground. Close your eyes, cover your closed eyes with the palms of your hands'. The speaker said 'the weapon has now left the aircraft'. And the count-down started... 5-4-3-2-1... Flash.
You could see the flash so brightly that you could quite clearly make out the bones of your hands.”
Deutsche Welle added:
“This week the UK supreme court will decide whether the veterans of British nuclear tests on a Pacific island in the 1950s and 1960s will be allowed to go ahead with their claim, which could cost the government more than 30 million euros in compensation.
Seventy-two year old Brian Leake is one of those who served on Christmas Island in the late 1950s. The pensioner from the town of Burntwood near Birmingham in the English midlands arrived on the island in 1958. When he arrived as an 18-year-old, Christmas Island served as one of the UK's bases for nuclear tests. During his year's service there Leake witnessed four nuclear bomb tests - three mid-air explosions and one on the island itself. ALL WERE CONSIDERABLY LARGER THAN THE BOMBS OVER HIROSHIMA AND NAGASAKI…
Since then, LEAKE HAS DEVELOPED FOUR SEPARATE CANCERS. He's one of more than a thousand veterans who say their illness stems from radiation and who are now fighting the UK government for compensation…
Susanne Roff, a researcher at Scotland's Dundee School of Medicine, says data gathered by her on the UK veterans has satisfied medical experts of a plausible link between the radiation they were exposed to and illness developed later in life.
'We've been able to show that THE ISLAND WAS CONTAMINATED. THE ISLAND IS STILL CONTAMINATED,' she told Deutsche Welle. 'They could have absorbed or ingested radio nuclides from the food that they ate, from the sea or the coconut on the land, they could have got it from the very sand that they walked on.'
OTHER WESTERN NUCLEAR POWERS, INCLUDING THE US, AUSTRALIA AND FRANCE, HAVE PAID VARIOUS DEGREES OF COMPENSATION TO THEIR OWN NUCLEAR TEST VETERANS… The Defense Ministry issued a statement that read:
'There is no evidence of excess illness or mortality amongst the veterans as a group which could be linked to their participation in the tests or to exposure to radiation as a result of that participation’…
THE UK AND THE US DETONATED MORE THAN 40 NUCLEAR WEAPONS BETWEEN 1952 AND 1962 IN THE PACIFIC AND AROUND AUSTRALIA. More than 21,000 UK soldiers and officers witnessed the detonations.”
On 27 July 2011, The Daily Mail’s Jenny Hope told us that a survey carried out by the Family Doctor Association had said:
“Four out of five GPs routinely prescribe drugs to patients they believe are addicted to them, research shows… Drugs most typically abused are sleeping pills, anti-depressants and painkillers…
Official statistics show 1.5million Britons are addicted to prescribed sedatives, known as benzodiazepines. This comes at a high cost to the NHS, which spends £3billion a year on tranquillisers and anti-depressants. A report from the Health Research Board last year found that the numbers being treated for ‘problem use’ of benzodiazepines between 2003 and 2008 rose 63 per cent. It also found the number of deaths caused by them rose 35 per cent from 65 in 1998 to 88 in 2007...
Many addicts are the elderly, who in most cases were prescribed the drugs decades ago. Some continue to suffer debilitating side effects, including paranoia and memory issues. Withdrawal effects are severe. But unlike addictions to heroin and cocaine, there is almost no specialist help to quit.
In 1988 the drug watchdog first warned this medication should not be prescribed for more than a few weeks.”
On 27 July 2011, The Sun told us this:
“Family campaigners last night blasted a group for teaching pole dancing to girls aged SEVEN — and putting pictures of them on the net. The photos show youngsters upside down on poles dressed in shorts, crop tops and vests…
A spokesman for Christian group the Mothers' Union said:
'Children are being targeted with an activity that's part of a male club culture which objectifies women. We hope parents would consider the negative impact it could have on their child's perception of their own body and sexuality’…
The Sun told in June how girls aged 12 were being taught pole dancing in Plymouth, Devon, as 'gymnastic art'.”
On 26 July 2011, Christopher Hope, and Conrad Quilty-Harper said this in The Telegraph:
“20 CABINET MINISTERS MET SENIOR MURDOCH EXECUTIVES 130 TIMES OVER THE PAST 14 MONTHS…
More than a quarter of the meetings were with David Cameron, while a further 17 meetings each were held with George Osborne, the Chancellor, and Dr Liam Fox, the Defence Secretary. Mr Osborne’s meetings included a dinner in New York with Mr Murdoch, the chairman of News Corporation, on December 17 – two weeks before the media regulator was due to rule on the company’s bid for full share ownership of BSkyB.
The Chancellor teamed up again with Mr Murdoch in May and met his son James, the chairman of News International, and Rebekah Brooks, its former chief executive, on three occasions each. Mr Osborne also met Elisabeth Murdoch, Mr Murdoch’s daughter who is tipped to succeed him at News Corp, at a social function last month.
The figures also show that the first media meetings held by both Jeremy Hunt, the Culture Secretary, and Michael Gove, the Education Secretary, after their appointments were with Rupert Murdoch. William Hague, the Foreign Secretary, met senior executives from News International on five occasions. More meetings between Murdoch executives and Dominic Grieve, the Attorney General, and Chris Huhne, the Environment Secretary, are yet to be disclosed.”
On 26 July 2011, Mary Kenny said this in The Telegraph:
"Our Irish parents and grandparents would find astonishing the acidly anti-clerical views expressed in the Republic of Ireland today. The land that once called itself a foremost Catholic nation and most loyal ally of the Holy Father is awash with sentiments that seem to veer between Ulster Paisleyism and the Spanish republicanism of the 1930s…
The airwaves are full of bitter remarks supporting Taoiseach Enda Kenny’s attack on the ‘disgraceful’ Vatican, and recommending every anti-church measure from the dissolution of the monasteries to the expulsion of the Papal Nuncio and the severing of all links with the Holy See. (The recall of the Papal Nuncio this week marks the lowest point of relations between Ireland and Rome.) One correspondent wrote that it was his ardent hope that the Catholic Church would follow the example of the News of the World, and hold a ‘last Mass’ before shutting down.
The Taoiseach, meanwhile, has been met with standing ovations for his salvo against the Vatican for failing to respond with sufficient concern to the clerical sex abuse scandals as described in the Cloyne report…
This is decidedly not the Catholic Ireland in which I grew up, where politicians were falling over themselves to kiss bishops’ rings, and where one of Enda Kenny’s party predecessors as Taoiseach declared that he was a Catholic first and an Irishman second. However, the breach with the Church has been a long time coming, and for the majority of Irish citizens it is welcome...
All power becomes, eventually, overweening, and the clergy’s power grew too great. This new fierce mood of Irish anti-clericalism is all part of the reaction…
There are now calls to remove the Catholic Church from every element of Irish public life, and this is supported by a growing secularist movement… Such sweeping changes could occur in what was once Catholic Ireland: the state could become as secularist as France, with all allusion to the Almighty officially excised. Yet even in France, the holy days continue, with Pentecost and Ascension and All Saints, and Lourdes attracting millions.
The Church in Ireland will never be what it was, but the faith, at grassroots level, will not disappear. The people will climb the holy mountain of St Patrick, and come in their thousands to the shrine of Our Lady at Knock, and beggar themselves to provide children with first communion regalia; and when there is a tragedy in a small town, the church and parish priest will still be at the centre of the community, offering age-old comforts, not of the Vatican, but of the faith.”
On 26 July 2011, Paul Joseph Watson said this at the Infowars.com website:
“Wasting little time in exploiting the freshly dead bodies of dozens of Norwegian teenagers to push its draconian agenda, the European Union has swiftly announced that it plans to set up an 'early warning system' to combat 'extremism,' the problem being that THE EU TREATS LEGITIMATE CRITICISM OF ITS OWN CORRUPT INSTITUTION AS EXTREMIST.
'The European Commission is building a security system to issue early warnings on threats of extremism, xenophobia and other forms of radicalism, EC spokesman Michele Cercone said on Tuesday,' reports RIA Novosti…
Eurosceptisim is on the rise across the contintent, which is why THE NEO-LIBERAL ELITE ARE BUSY IMPLYING THAT PEOPLE WHO OPPOSE BEING RULED BY AN UNELECTED, UNACCOUNTABLE, SOVIET-STYLE BUEARACRATIC TYRANNY ARE IN LEAGUE WITH NORWEGIAN MASS MURDERER ANDERS BEHRING BREIVIK…
THE EU’S CRASS RUSH TO EXPLOIT LAST WEEK’S TRAGEDY HAS LITTLE TO DO WITH STOPPING THE NEXT BREIVIK AND A LOT TO DO WITH STIFLING CRITICISM OF ITS OWN INSTITUTION.
THE EU HABITUALLY USES THE 'EXTREMIST' LABEL TO DISCREDIT LEGITIMATE POLITICAL OPPOSITION TO ITS AGENDA, PARTICULARLY WHEN IT WANTS TO SILENCE THOSE WHO SPEAK OUT AGAINST THE EU’S ADVOCACY OF MASS IMMIGRATION POLICIES…
British MEP Nigel Farage was also reprimanded by EU Commission heads in 2009 simply for criticizing 'important EU people'. Indeed, under the 1999 ruling of the European Court Of Justice (case 274/99), IT IS ILLEGAL TO CRITICIZE THE EU, and the institution is on a mission to marginalize any national political parties that do not pander to the European federal superstate agenda, by smearing them as racist and xenophobic…
SINCE EU LEADERS TREAT ANYONE WHO CRITICIZES THE EU ITSELF AS RACISTS OR EXTREMISTS, AND ROUTINELY ACT TO SILENCE THEIR FREE SPEECH, THEY SHOULD BE THE LAST PEOPLE TRUSTED TO OVERSEE AN 'EARLY WARNING SYSTEM' THAT SERVES TO IDENTIFY EXTREMIST THREATS.”
On 25 July 2011, ABC News reported thus:
"An author cited in the Norway massacre suspect's rambling, 1,500-page manifesto expressed regret Monday that her writing might have served to inspire his rampage. Gisele Littman, who writes under the name Bat Ye'or, said that since her books are in the public domain she had no control over who quoted her.
"Of course I regret if this man took inspiration from what I wrote"… she told The Associated Press...
Breivik cites Littman's work approvingly many times in the document he posted shortly before Friday's attacks.
Her 2005 book ‘Eurabia: the Euro-Arab Axis’ explores the relationship between European and Muslim countries. The term 'Eurabia' has been used by some to describe the growing influence of Islam in Europe, though Littman contended that her arguments are more complex...
‘This problem of Norway is a problem of Europe," said Littman, whose next book is titled "Europe, Globalization, and the Coming Universal Caliphate”…
Littman is a Cairo-born Jew… She settled in England, where she married, before moving to Switzerland.”
On 25 July 2011, The Daily Mail reported thus:
“The judge leading the inquiry into the phone-hacking scandal was last night urged to 'come clean' about his links to the Murdoch family. Lord Justice Leveson was facing questions over his impartiality after it emerged HE ATTENDED TWO PARTIES IN THE PAST YEAR AT THE LONDON HOME OF RUPERT MURDOCH'S DAUGHTER, ELISABETH, AND HER HUSBAND, PR SUPREMO MATTHEW FREUD.
In his role as chairman of the independent Sentencing Council, he is also reported to have had dinner last year with Mr Freud to discuss an offer from Freud Communications to give free PR advice on improving public confidence in the criminal justice system. It is not known whether he met members of the Murdoch family at any of the events or whether he discussed phone hacking and the role of the media.
Labour MP Chris Bryant last night said the revelations raised 'serious questions' about WHETHER LORD JUSTICE LEVESON WOULD BE ABLE TO COMMAND PUBLIC CONFIDENCE IN HIS ROLE AS HEAD OF THE INQUIRY, which is likely to take evidence from Mr Murdoch and his son James… Mr Bryant said the judge was ‘compromised’ by the revelations. He added:
‘I’m afraid this does raise serious questions and he does now need to come clean about exactly who he met and what they discussed. He may well be very independent but the way this has come out makes it look as if HE HAS GOT SOMETHING TO COVER UP.’
A spokesman for Lord Leveson confirmed he attended ‘large evening events’ at Mr Freud’s home in July last year and January this year. But HE DECLINED TO SAY WHO THE JUDGE HAD MET… The revelations came as David Cameron pledged to restore Britain’s confidence in the wake of a string of scandals.”
On 25 July 2011, David Cameron said this in The Big Issue Magazine:
“THERE’S A SENSE THAT THE RICH AND THE POWERFUL, POLITICIANS, BANKERS, THE PRESS AND THE POLICE, HAVE BEEN SERVING THEMSELVES, NOT EACH OTHER… The way the world is changing, with the rise of new powers like China and India, and I THINK THERE’S A GENERAL FEELING THAT MAYBE OUR BEST DAYS AS A COUNTRY ARE BEHIND US.”
On 25 July 2011, Dominic Sandbrook reported thus in The Daily Mail:
“With British attention distracted by the phone-hacking scandal, this week THE EUROPEAN POLITICAL ELITE HURLED ANOTHER £96 BILLION AT THE AILING GREEK ECONOMY…
Exactly 40 years after Edward Heath's government published the terms for British entry into the European Economic Community, the ancestor of today's EU, THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A WIDER GULF BETWEEN THE PRIVILEGED EUROPEAN POLITICAL CLASS AND THEIR ANXIOUS, BEWILDERED AND HARD-PRESSED PEOPLE. Back in the summer of 1971, in a moment heavy with idealistic excitement, Heath addressed the British people on TV.
'WE HAVE THE CHANCE OF NEW GREATNESS,' he said… ‘NOW WE MUST TAKE IT.'
But four decades on, THOSE OPTIMISTIC WORDS RING TERRIBLY HOLLOW… Despite its latest gigantic handout, it seems impossible that Greece can stomach the necessary austerity measures to keep the markets happy for long.
Ireland totters on the brink of a second bail-out, while even more disturbingly Italy and Spain, with massive deficits and soaring unemployment, are still dancing on the edge of disaster.
Yet ALMOST UNBELIEVABLY, THE EURO ELITE’S FAITH IN THEIR GREAT PROJECT REMAINS UNDAUNTED. DESPITE THE PALPABLE COSTS OF FEDERALIST IDEALISM, THE LEADERS OF GERMANY AND FRANCE SEEM DETERMINED TO KEEP MOVING TOWARDS THEIR DREAM OF ‘EVER-CLOSER UNION’ — with Britain, as always, trudging gloomily behind…
THE EURO HAS BECOME A SYMBOL NOT OF UNITY AND FRIENDSHIP, BUT OF HUBRIS, INDISCIPLINE AND ECONOMIC ARMAGEDDON. On the streets of Mediterranean capitals, demonstrators daily vent their fury at the politicians they blame for their predicament.
For the dwindling handful of deluded idealists who still believe in a united Europe, the omens could hardly be darker… When the financial contagion spreads to Italy and Spain, as it surely will, then BRITISH BANKS, MANUFACTURERS AND CONSTRUCTION FIRMS, THE CITY OF LONDON AND THOUSANDS OF EXPORTERS WILL FACE AN ALMIGHTY RECKONING…
European enthusiasm, never strong in this country, curdled into indifference and suspicion long ago. But the looming collapse of the euro, A DISASTROUS EXPERIMENT WE WOULD HAVE JOINED IF TONY BLAIR AND PETER MANDELSON HAD HAD THEIR WAY, represents something different. Ten days ago, ONE OPINION POLL FOUND 66 PER CENT OF CONSERVATIVE VOTERS WOULD CHOOSE TO LEAVE THE EU IF A REFERENDUM WERE HELD TOMORROW… TWO OUT OF THREE VOTERS BLAME THE EU FOR THE GIGANTIC DEBT CRISIS IN GREECE, IRELAND AND PORTUGAL. And if the British people, as opposed to just Tory supporters, were given the choice, they would vote by 50 per cent to 33 per cent to abandon Brussels…
‘My generation did not have the option of living in the past; we had to work for the future,’ wrote the young Heath, who served with distinction as an artillery officer and witnessed at first hand the trials of Nazi war criminals. We were surrounded by destruction, homelessness, hunger and despair…
Only by working together right across our continent had we any hope of creating a society that would uphold the true values of European civilisation’…
When we finally did join in 1973, we became a semi-detached member of what was essentially A FRANCO-GERMAN CLUB, WHOSE DIRECTORS WERE OFTEN INDIFFERENT TO OUR PARLIAMENTARY TRADITIONS, INTOLERANT OF OUR HISTORICAL ECCENTRICITIES AND SUBLIMELY UNINTERESTED IN BRITISH PUBLIC OPINION…
In the summer of 1975, with inflation at an eye- watering 26 per cent, Britain was staggering around like a drunk at the end of a party. Europe seemed to offer stability, even salvation. Europe was the future… So the British people voted by 67 to 33 per cent to stay in Europe.
Very quickly, however, the cracks began to appear, as the original Common Market inexorably took on greater central powers, ITS GRASP EXTENDING INTO ALL AREAS OF SOCIETY AND CULTURE, INDIFFERENT TO THE CLAIMS OF NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY… Britain had become trapped on a federal escalator.
Far from the simple free-trade organisation that had been intended, EUROPE WAS RAPIDLY EVOLVING INTO A BLOATED BUREAUCRATIC EMPIRE UNACCOUNTABLE TO ITS VARIOUS PEOPLES…
The disgraceful absurdities of the Common Agricultural Policy, to take one flagrant example of EU policy, are well known. It accounts for almost half the EU budget, costing taxpayers a whopping €50 billion a year, MOST OF WHICH GOES TO FRENCH FARMERS. ACCORDING TO THE CONSUMER MAGAZINE WHICH?, IT RAMPS UP FOOD PRICES BY £1,000 A YEAR FOR A FAMILY OF FOUR…
Then there is the sheer wastefulness of EU institutions. Once a month, the 736 members of the European Parliament, as well as thousands of officials, have to travel from Brussels to Strasbourg, followed by a fleet of lorries carrying their documents. You might think they should stay in Brussels, but the French insist they must have sessions in Strasbourg, too.
It is little wonder that FOR 16 YEARS IN A ROW, AUDITORS HAVE REFUSED TO SIGN OFF THE EU’S ACCOUNTS. It would almost be funny were it not so depressing…
Even as the European empire swelled and the early romanticism evaporated amid the brown envelopes and backhanders, the seeds of catastrophe were being sown… The introduction of the euro, which went into circulation in 1999 and is now used by 17 EU states and 332 million people, WAS A CATASTROPHIC MISTAKE. IT WAS A TRIUMPH OF IDEALISM AND EMPIRE-BUILDING OVER PRUDENCE AND REASON. It yoked together national economies as diverse as Germany and Portugal, Italy and Ireland, denying them the freedom to manage their own currencies and, crucially, to set their own interest rates. With rates kept low, poorer countries such as Greece, Ireland and Spain went on demented spending sprees, borrowing wildly and throwing money at developers as though it would never run out. But when the bubble burst, the reckoning was terrible.
With Greece reduced to a beggar, Ireland in hock to the IMF, Spain trembling on the brink and Italy facing the imposition of deep austerity measures, the survival of the eurozone in its current form looks highly unlikely…
Financial analysts predict that if the Italian government defaults on its debts and Italian banks collapse, as could well happen if the markets lose confidence in Silvio Berlusconi’s comic-opera government — then THE CONTAGION COULD LEAVE OUR BANKS AND INSTITUTIONS FACING LOSSES OF ALMOST £43 BILLION…
The best thing would be to let the euro die a quiet and unlamented death, allowing poorer countries to set their own interest rates, but, of course, the French and Germans would never stand for that, because of their idealistic commitment to ‘ever-closer union’…
Interfering when it should be aloof, dithering when it should be decisive, toothless and inept when it should be effective and efficient, THE EU HAS BECOME A BYWORD FOR UNACCOUNTABILITY, INCOMPETENCE AND SHEER IMPENETRABILITY.”
On 25 July 2011, Lior Yacoby's 'Suspect in Norway attacks wrote manifesto espousing pro-Zionist views' appeared at the Israel Hayom web site.
This is it:
ANDERS BEHRING BREIVIK MENTIONS ISRAEL AT LEAST 300 TIMES AND PRAISES HERZL in his hate-filled manifesto. He also urges Europeans to ‘STOP STUPID SUPPORT FOR THE PALESTINIANS.’
Anders Behring Breivik, the main suspect in the attacks carried out on Friday in Norway, published a 1,500-page manifesto on the Internet that espouses a right-wing, anti-Muslim philosophy that also appears to be PRO-ZIONIST…
In the manifesto, titled ‘2083: A European Declaration of Independence’ and published under the name Andrew Berwick, ISRAEL IS MENTIONED NO LESS THAN 300 TIMES, ALWAYS IN A POSITIVE LIGHT. In his writings, Breivik appears to be an ‘ARDENT ZIONIST,’ PRAISING AND EXALTING ‘THE JEWISH STATE’ BY THEODOR HERZL. HE ATTACKS THE EUROPEAN POLITICAL ESTABLISHMENT, LED BY THE EUROPEAN UNION, FOR NOT SUPPORTING ISRAEL.
Breivik also praises Israel’s policies saying, ‘Throughout the years, [Israel] has not granted most of its Muslim residents civil rights, in stark contrast to Europe, which opened its doors to Muslims and granted them exaggerated rights and citizenship’…
He praises Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for creating his right-leaning coalition.”
On 25 July 2011 Gavin Hewitt said this on the BBC web site:
“Across Europe there is a strong and growing concern about immigration. It is partly fuelled by unemployment but also has its roots in threatened identity. Societies have been changing fast. There is mounting frustration that officials at both European and national level seem not to listen to the views of the voters. With globalisation, national identity seems to have become more important. The nation state stubbornly remains the focus of most people's identity. And so extremist parties have made gains in many parts of Europe…
Some of Europe's leaders, from Angela Merkel to David Cameron, have questioned multiculturalism. The danger, of course, is that such statements can encourage extremism… Norway's tragedy will be used by some to speak of the dangers of populism.”
On 25 July 2011, after it came to light that scientists had created more than 150 human-animal hybrid embryos in British laboratories, The Daily Mail quoted Josephine Quintavalle, of pro-life group Comment on Reproductive Ethics, thus:
“I am aghast that this is going on and WE DIDN’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT. WHY HAVE THEY KEPT THIS A SECRET? If they are proud of what they are doing, why do we need to ask Parliamentary questions for this to come to light? The problem with many scientists is that they want to do things because they want to experiment. That is not a good enough rationale.”
The “parliamentary question" had been asked by crossbench peer, Lord Alton, who, on 24 July, said this in the Lords:
“I argued in Parliament against the creation of human-animal hybrids as a matter of principle. NONE OF THE SCIENTISTS WHO APPEARED BEFORE US COULD GIVE US ANY JUSTIFICATION IN TERMS OF TREATMENT. Ethically it can never be justifiable, it discredits us as a country. It is dabbling in the grotesque. At every stage the justification from scientists has been: if only you allow us to do this, we will find cures for every illness known to mankind. This is emotional blackmail. Of the 80 treatments and cures which have come about from stem cells, all have come from adult stem cells, not embryonic ones. ON MORAL AND ETHICAL GROUNDS THIS FAILS: and on scientific and medical ones too.”
The Mail added:
“The hybrids have been produced secretively over the past three years… Figures seen by the Daily Mail show that 155 ‘admixed’ embryos, containing both human and animal genetic material, have been created since the introduction of the 2008 Human Fertilisation Embryology Act. This legalised the creation of a variety of hybrids, including an animal egg fertilised by a human sperm; ‘cybrids’, in which a human nucleus is implanted into an animal cell; and ‘chimeras’, in which human cells are mixed with animal embryos… Human-animal hybrids are also created in other countries, many of which have little or no regulation.”
On 22 July, Professor Thomas Baldwin was quoted by The Telegraph thus:
"The fear is that IF YOU START PUTTING VERY LARGE NUMBERS OF HUMAN BRAIN CELLS INTO THE BRAINS OF PRIMATES SUDDENLY YOU MIGHT TRANSFORM THE PRIMATE INTO SOMETHING THAT HAS SOME OF THE CAPACITIES THAT WE REGARD AS DISTINCTIVELY HUMAN.”
On 25 July 2011, The Telegraph quoted Labour MP, Chris Bryant, thus:
“People were paying tribute to the Murdoch court in the hope that their newspapers would support them. Clearly THE MURDOCH MEDIA MACHINE WAS IN LOBBYING OVERDRIVE AND DETERMINED TO GET THE SKY TAKEOVER CLEARED, AND THE COALITION FELL FOR IT HOOK, LINE AND SINKER.”
The Telegraph added:
“The extent of the Government’s association with the media mogul’s companies was laid bare in official figures showing that 20 CABINET MINISTERS MET SENIOR MURDOCH EXECUTIVES 130 TIMES OVER THE PAST 14 MONTHS…
Mr Gove, a former journalist with The Times whose wife Sarah Vine writes a column for newspaper, met Rupert Murdoch seven times and Mrs Brooks eight times at events including lunches, dinners and social gatherings…
Out of a total of 252 meetings with media groups between May last year and June 26 this year, Mr Gove, Mr Osborne and Mr Cameron met representatives from News International and News Corp on 60 occasions. The same three met executives from the Telegraph Media Group on 18 occasions, The Guardian and The Observer six times, the Daily Mail six times and The Independent three times.”
On 25 July 2011, Richard Cottrell, author and former Conservative member of the European Parliament, said this at the Progressive blog:
“Anyone who knows Norway understands these tough-minded and often prickly folk are dedicated foremost to minding their own business, which is one reason they have sensibly refused to climb on the bed of nails called the EU. Many Norwegians look on the influence of NATO with dismay, particularly the renewed saber rattling towards Moscow, which they regard as courting trouble for the sake of it. The Norwegians preciously guard their formidable marine assets in the form of priceless fisheries, which UNLIKE THOSE UNDER THE RULE OF BRUSSELS ARE CAREFULLY MANAGED AND HARVESTED. Interlopers in Norwegian waters find themselves going home without a boat. Norway has many state industries, including oil and gas, WHICH JARS THE NERVES OF THE US-DOMINATED GLOBAL OIL LOBBY. But frankly what sets teeth chattering in Washington and NATO is THE NORWEGIAN INSISTENCE ON STUBBORNLY CLINGING TO ‘SOCIALISTIC’ PROTECTIONIST METHODS OF RUNNING THE ECONOMY AND WORSE, HORROR-OF HORRORS, HAVING REAL LEFT-WINGERS IN GOVERNMENT...
ISRAELI COMPANIES AND INTERESTS ARE NOT WELCOME AND JUST BEFORE THE BOMBINGS, TWO ISRAELI FIRMS WERE THROWN OUT OF THE COUNTRY. The Palestinian issue more than grates... Thanks to the stupid escapade in Libya, NATO really is fraying at the edges. Turkey is really now a token member choosing a la carte from the NATO menu, Germany dearly wants to do the same, even the usually rock solid Italians have had enough of the mayhem in one of their old colonies and there is no appetite whatsoever for NATO war-mongering among the Dutch. As poll after poll demonstrates, the Spanish would vote solidly to march out of the alliance tomorrow afternoon. THE BRITISH ARE CONTINUALLY WONDERING WHAT NEED IS THERE OF AN ALLIANCE WHICH SEEMS DEDICATED TO MAKING WAR RATHER THAN PEACE.
Against this background LITTLE NORWAY IS MORE THAN A NUISANCE. SHE IS AFFRONT TO THE IMPERIAL MAJESTY. SO THE RESULT IS THE RAPE OF THE SOVEREIGNTY OF A SMALL COUNTRY THAT MUST HENCEFORTH UNDERSTAND THAT SHE MUST GO WITH THE FLOW – THE GREAT TIDAL GRIP OF THE US AND NATO – OR FACE THE UNPLEASANT CONSEQUENCES.
After the usual softening up preparatory barrage -. propagandist libeling of the Norwegian authorities as disorganized, chaotic and ‘soft on terror’ - now they have it served up on their doorstep to ram the message home. It is no co-incidence whatsoever that starting about eighteen months ago, THE US AND NATO BEGAN PLANTING INTERLOPERS IN THE NORWEGIAN POLICE, SECURITY AGENCIES AND THE MILITARY. THIS BY THE WAY IS NOT LIMITED TO NORWAY BUT SIMILAR TACTICS HAVE BEEN TRACED TO DENMARK, SWEDEN, POLAND AND PORTUGAL.
Webster Tarpley says this is the re-incarnation of the NATO-sponsored Gladio secret guerillas responsible for the ‘years of lead’ which terrorized Europe in the mid years of the last century. He is right. THE HORRORS IN NORWAY ARE STRAIGHT OUT OF THE GLADIO MANUAL OF FALSE FLAG TERROR DESIGNED TO PUSH PUBLIC OPINION IN A SELECTED DIRECTION, IN THIS CASE AWAY FROM THE ANTI-ISRAELI, PRO-PALESTINIAN, NATO-WAVERING POLICIES PRACTICED BY THE NORWEGIAN GOVERNMENT. It was known as the Strategy of Tension and that is what we are now seeing on the net, in the media and on our tv screens.
All the telltale indicators are present. The usual confused dummy, or patsy, with some kind of confused and muddled explanation for his so called actions. All the better HE IS A MASON TOO. He pops up bang on cue for presentation to the world in all his rambling perfection. But WITNESSES INSIST THEY SAW OTHER SHOOTERS IN ACTION… There too is the ‘ AMAZING CO-INCIDENCE’ OF POLICE MESSING ABOUT WITH REAL BOMBS AND EXPLOSIVES IN DOWNTOWN OSLO JUST 48 HOURS OR SO EARLIER... Rest assured the new Gladio units were fully behind that…
Cui bono? Who did it? FINGERS HAVE IMMEDIATELY POINTED AT MOSSAD. CLEARLY BLASTING THE NORWEGIAN PALESTINIAN-LOVING GOVERNMENT OUT OF THE WATER WOULD GO DOWN A TREAT IN JERUSALEM. But this may be to under-estimate the wider picture. The Norwegians have been getting on a lot of nerves for a very long time. THEY ARE WOBBLY ON NATO. THEY REFUSE TO OPEN THEIR PROTECTED OIL, GAS AND FISHING GROUNDS. THEY TWO-FINGER THE EU. THE EURO? MOST PEOPLE KNOW WHAT THEY WOULD DO THAT PIECE OF PAPER. THEIR ECONOMY IS SUCCESSFUL, SEEMINGLY RECESSION-PROOF. WALL STREET CANNOT FOR ALL ITS EFFORTS GET ITS SMUTTY MITTS ON NORWEGIAN ASSETS. DON’T EVEN MENTION PRIVATIZATION. So taken overall its quite a list. ISRAELI INTELLIGENCE IS CERTAINLY IN THE FRAME BUT SO IS THE MUCH WIDER AGENCY THAT WE CALL THE NEW WORLD ORDER. ASIDE FROM THE US AND NATO, THAT’S THE FULL GAMUT OF GLOBALISED THUGS LIKE THE IMF AND THE WORLD BANK, PLUS FOR GOOD MEASURE THE CORRUPTED INTERNATIONAL BANKOCRACY.
I think this is an organized gang bang designed to take out the Norwegian government in its entirely, to cut the whole show down to size. The object is nothing less than to cannibalize the country (exactly like Libya). As Michael Ledeen is supposed to have once said, to ‘take a small country and slap it against the wall, just to show we mean business.’ Lets remember NATO is no longer a regional outfit. It is the global military arm of the US and through that the might and force of western interests everywhere. The latter-day secret soldiers of the New World Order responsible for the latest outrage are an uptake on the old Gladio: but even more to be feared, that’s for sure. Ask any Norwegian.”
Oslo: Down to the New World Order
On 25 July 2011, Ravi Shankar, Executive Editor of New Indian Express, said this at the Al Arabiya web site:
“On Friday, a new kind of terror wounded Oslo with an incomprehensible nightmare, a blue eyed, blond haired terrorist massacring schoolboys and planting bombs. Liberalism was the killer’s enemy… a rightwing Norwegian named Anders Behring Breivik…
In 2008, the Vatican warned that THE WORLD’S MUSLIM POPULATION HAS ACHIEVED A GROWTH RATE THAT HAS OUTPACED CHRISTIANS – 19 percent to 17 percent Catholic… The report predicted that EUROPE’S MUSLIM POPULATION OF 15 MILLION WILL BECOME 30 MILLION BY 2015, WHILE EUROPEANS WILL SHRINK BY 4 PER CENT. Princeton academic and Islamic scholar Bernard Lewis famously said, ‘EUROPE WILL BE ISLAMIC BY THE END OF THE CENTURY.’
If Friday’s bombings in Oslo is a dark harbinger of troubled times, soon, MUSLIMS WILL BE THE NEW JEWS OF EUROPE… Anti-semitism has strong roots in Europe going back centuries; in the Dark Ages, Venetians preferred to trust Arabs as trade partners and equals while Jewish merchants were exiled to ghettos or deported at will.
EUROPEANS TODAY HATE AMERICA FOR ITS JEWISH GESTALT, DISTRUSTS US ISRAEL POLICY WHICH THEY ARGUE IS DRIVEN BY A POWERFUL JEWISH FINANCIAL LOBBY IN AMERICA; much like how THE ROTHSCHILDS FINANCED WARS IN 18TH CENTURY EUROPE…
It is the presence of Muslims in Europe that is the source of social panic and anger. THE FEAR OF BEING OVERWHELMED AND ALIENATED IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY BY OUTSIDERS WHO THEY THINK WILL BREED TERRORISTS.”
On 25 July 2011, The Daily Express reported thus:
“During its long 13 years in power, the Labour Party continually maintained that mass immigration was an unalloyed blessing. But THIS WAS JUST HOLLOW PROPAGANDA. The reality is very different. With almost 600,000 new arrivals every year, OUR INFRASTRUCTURE HAS BEEN PUT UNDER INTOLERABLE STRAIN AND SOCIAL COHESION HAS BEEN FRACTURED.
Now another sorry consequence of undiluted immigration has emerged. According to the government’s own statisticians ONE IN EVERY FOUR BABIES BORN IN BRITAIN WAS TO A MOTHER FROM OVERSEAS AND THIS MIGRANT BABY BOOM HAS LED TO A DRAMATIC INCREASE IN THE OVERALL NATIONAL BIRTH RATE, which has reached its highest level for almost 20 years. It is a change that has imposed a growing burden on maternity services just at a time of austerity in the public sector.
THE EXPLOSION IN DEMAND HAS LED TO STAFF SHORTAGES, LACK OF BEDS AND EVEN THE REFUSAL OF ADMISSION FOR WOMEN IN LABOUR. One investigation by the BBC found that in some London trusts maternity units were 20 per cent understaffed. BRITISH TAXPAYERS ARE HAVING TO FORK OUT A FORTUNE TO SUPPORT PEOPLE WHO MAY HAVE MADE NO CONTRIBUTION TO OUR SOCIETY.
THE SOCIAL CONTRACT OF MUTUAL RESPONSIBILITY WHICH IS THE BASIS OF THE ENTIRE WELFARE SYSTEM HAS BEEN SHATTERED.”
On 24 July 2011, the Israeli jazz musician, Gilad Atzmon, said this on his own blog:
“THE AUF LABOUR PARTY YOUTH MOVEMENT HAVE BEEN DEVOTED PROMOTERS OF THE ISRAEL BOYCOTT CAMPAIGN… Yesterday we also learned that MASS-MURDERER ANDERS BEHRING BREIVIK WAS OPENLY ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT ISRAEL… Behring Breivik was a regular poster on several Norwegian internet sites, notably the blog document.no, which is run by Hans Rustad, a former left-wing journalist. HANS RUSTAD IS JEWISH, EXTREMELY PRO-ZIONIST, and warns against ‘Islamisation’…
Alongside the UK’s infamously Islamophobic Harry’s Place and other Jewish pro-war Zionist blogs, the observant amongst us are becoming more and more aware of an increasingly pervasive trend of Jerusalemite internet journals that -- ostensibly – like to give the impression of ‘rallying for the preservation of Western culture,’ and of ‘standing up for democratic values’. For the most obvious of reasons, these blog pages are almost exclusively focused on ‘the problem of Islam,’ and on Muslim migrants’ ‘troubled and reactionary’ communities and politics, whilst all the while, SIMULTANEOUSLY, RELENTLESSLY AND FORCEFULLY PROPOUNDING A PROPAGANDISTIC ZIONIST AGENDA. Interestingly enough, other immigrants are routinely depicted on these blog pages as being 'harmless', or as 'positive contributors to society' -- you won’t find Hans Rustad or Harry Place criticising the Jewish Lobbies, the Lord Levy’s or the Russian Oligarchs’ disastrous impact on ‘Western culture’ or on ‘democratic values’ any time soon.
Gordon Duff wrote yesterday in ‘Veterans Today’ that THE ‘CAR BOMBING CARRIES THE SIGNATURE OF AN INTELLIGENCE AGENCY. Nobody else bothers with such things’…
I am not in a position at present to firmly point a finger at Israel, its agents, or its sayanim but, assembling the information together, and considering all possibilities may suggest that ANDERS BEHRING BREIVIK MIGHT INDEED, HAVE BEEN A SABBATH GOY…
WITHIN THE ZIONISED REALITY WE TRAGICALLY ENOUGH LIVE IN, THE SABBATH GOY KILLS FOR THE JEWISH STATE. He may even do it voluntarily.
Being an admirer of Israel, BEHRING BREIVIK DOES APPEAR TO HAVE TREATED HIS FELLOW COUNTRYMEN IN THE SAME WAY THAT THE IDF TREATS PALESTINIANS.
Devastatingly enough, IN ISRAEL, BEHRING BREIVIK FOUND A FEW ENTHUSIASTIC FOLLOWERS WHO PRAISED HIS ACTION AGAINST THE NORWEGIAN YOUTH. In the Hebrew article that reported about the AUF camp being pro Palestinian and supportive of the Israel Boycott Campaign, I found the following comments amongst other supports for the massacre…
‘OSLO CRIMINALS PAID…
‘IT'S STUPIDITY AND EVIL NOT TO DESIRE DEATH FOR THOSE WHO CALL TO BOYCOTT ISRAEL’…
‘We have a bunch of haters of Israel meeting in a country that hates Israel in a conference that endorses the boycott. So it's not okay, not nice, really a tragedy for families, and we condemn the act itself, but to cry about it? Come on. WE JEWS ARE NOT CHRISTIANS. IN THE JEWISH RELIGION THERE IS NO OBLIGATION TO LOVE OR MOURN FOR THE ENEMY’…
The full facts of the Norwegian tragedy are, as yet, unknown, but the message should by now be transparently and urgently clear to all of us: WESTERN INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES MUST IMMEDIATELY CRACKDOWN ON ISRAELI AND ZIONIST OPERATORS IN OUR MIDST AND, REGARDING THE TERRIBLE EVENTS OF THE WEEKEND, IT MUST BE MADE ABSOLUTELY CLEAR WHO IT WAS THAT SPREAD SUCH HATE AND PROMOTED SCH TERROR, AND FOR WHAT EXACT REASONS.”
On 24 July 2011, The Jerusalem Post said this:
"Europe’s fringe RIGHT-WING EXTREMISTS present a real danger to society. But OSLO’S DEVASTATING TRAGEDY SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO BE MANIPULATED BY THOSE WHO WOULD COVER UP THE ABJECT FAILURE OF MULTICULTURALISM.
The cold-blooded calculation of the Norway tragedy boggles the mind. For over an hour, Anders Behring Breivik, 32, dressed as a police officer and armed with a rifle and a hand gun, prowled Utoeya, a tiny forested holiday island a few dozen kilometers from Oslo, calmly massacring teenagers. The youngsters had been attending the annual summer camp for the youth wing of Norway’s ruling Labor party…
When he finally was forced to put down his weapons BY A POLICE TEAM THAT REPORTEDLY TOOK 40 MINUTES TO RESPOND, at least 86 were dead and many more were wounded.
Just hours before Breivik, a former member of a POPULIST ANTI-IMMIGRATION PARTY who wrote blogs attacking multiculturalism and Islam, had detonated a bomb in Oslo’s government district that killed seven.
The attacks... targeted a government known for its embrace of multiculturalist policies...
Oslo is the namesake of one of the most ambitious – and misguided – attempts by Israel, under the mediation of the Norwegians, to reach a peace accord with our Palestinian neighbors. Norway’s capital is where the Nobel Peace Prize is presented annually...
Now along with their dogged pursuit of peace, the Norwegians are also coming to grips with the reality of evil in their midst. It would be wrongheaded, however, to allow the fact that THIS TERRIBLE TRAGEDY WAS PERPETRATED BY A RIGHT-WING EXTREMIST to detract attention from the UNDERLYING PROBLEMS FACED NOT ONLY BY NORWAY, BUT BY MANY WESTERN EUROPEAN NATIONS.
Undoubtedly, THERE WILL BE THOSE, PARTICULARLY ON THE LEFT, WHO WILL EXTRAPOLATE OUT FROM BREIVIK’S HORRIFIC ACT THAT THE REAL DANGER FACING CONTEMPORARY EUROPE IS RIGHTWING EXTREMISM AND THAT CRITICISM OF MULTICULTURALISM IS NOTHING MORE THAN SO MUCH ISLAMOPHOBIA…
Perhaps Brievik’s inexcusable act of vicious terror should serve not only as a warning that THERE MAY BE MORE ELEMENTS ON THE EXTREME RIGHT WILLING TO USE VIOLENCE TO FURTHER THEIR GOALS, but also as an opportunity to seriously reevaluate policies for immigrant integration in Norway and elsewhere… Discontent with multiculturalism’s failure must not be delegitimatized or mistakenly portrayed as an opinion held by only the most EXTREMIST elements of THE RIGHT.
Britain’s Prime Minister DAVID CAMERON AND GERMANY’S CHANCELLOR ANGELA MERKEL HAVE BOTH RECENTLY LAMENTED THE 'FAILURE OF MULTICULTURALISM' in their respective countries.
AMARTYA SEN, THE 1998 NOBEL PRIZE LAUREATE FOR WELFARE ECONOMICS FROM INDIA, HAS NOTED HOW TERRIBLY IMPRACTICAL IT IS TO BELIEVE THAT THE COEXISTENCE OF AN ARRAY OF CULTURES IN CLOSE PROXIMITY WILL LEAD TO PEACE. WITHOUT A SHARED CULTURAL FOUNDATION, NO MEANINGFUL COMMUNICATION AMONG DIVERSE GROUPS IS POSSIBLE, SEN HAS ARGUED...
EUROPE’S FRINGE RIGHT-WING EXTREMISTS PRESENT A REAL DANGER TO SOCIETY. But Oslo’s devastating tragedy should not be allowed to be manipulated by those who would cover up THE ABJECT FAILURE OF MULTICULTURALISM.”
The Jersualem Post's commentary upon the Breivik issue is is more even-handed than that of most British media.
However, as so many of the leading lights of the multiculturalising project in the West (not in Israel, China, India, Africa or South America) were, and still are, Jewish, one wonders if the JP isn’t just picking up a few Brownie points where it thinks it can.
On 23 July 2011, Paul Bracchi wrote the following in The Daily Mail:
“Katie was just 12 when she and a friend, also aged 12, went with six young men to a park in Reading where ‘something terrible’ happened. Sadly, it doesn’t take a genius to work out what that ‘something terrible’ was.
The six men, all promising local footballers, claimed they thought the girls were at least 16, but they were subsequently convicted of statutory rape because, in the eyes of the law, the girls were unable to give their consent. Last week, though, THE DEFENDANTS WERE CONTROVERSIALLY FREED FROM JAIL AFTER THE APPEAL COURT RULED THAT THE GIRLS HAD ‘WANTED SEX’.
In other words, ACCORDING TO THE JUDGMENT, KATIE AND HER FRIEND, BOTH JUST 12, REMEMBER, WERE NOT REALLY VICTIMS AT ALL.
Worse, it gave credence to the view, in the eyes of some, at least, that THEY WERE ACTUALLY TO BLAME FOR GETTING THE SIX FOOTBALLERS, AGED BETWEEN 18 AND 21, INCLUDING A FORMER MEMBER OF READING FC’S ACADEMY, INTO TROUBLE AND RUINING THEIR CAREERS…
The incident in the park, and its aftermath, have been a personal tragedy for Katie, who is now receiving counselling. But the tragedy spreads wider, for THE CASE ALSO EXPOSES THE INCREASING SEXUALISATION OF CHILDREN AND THE SICKENING CULTURE OF GROUP SEX, WHICH SOMEHOW SEEMS TO HAVE BECOME ACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOUR FOR A GROWING NUMBER OF PREDATORY TEENAGE MALES…
Anyone who is in any doubt should read the comments of the original trial judge, who said that the six accused standing in the dock in front of him in March this year had treated Katie and her friend ‘AS IF THEY WERE PIECES OF FLESH’, before sentencing them to two years...
‘There is nothing to be scared of,’ her mother tells her before Katie begins to recount, in little more than a whisper, detail by harrowing detail, the chain of events that ended with her going to a park at night with six young men she had never met.
Those events unfolded one weekend in February last year, when Katie and her mother returned to Reading to visit relatives. During the visit, Katie met the girl who had once been her best friend. We shall call her Lucy. Lucy, who as we shall see is certainly old beyond her years, invited Katie to a ‘sleepover’, and in the evening they both attended a family birthday party in a local hall. Soon, Lucy began exchanging text messages with a boy, or rather a young man, whose number she had obtained three weeks earlier... The young man’s name was Jahvon Edwards…
Edwards and his ‘five friends’ pulled up outside the hall, where the family gathering was still in full flow, in two Vauxhall Corsa cars. Lucy then asked Katie to come outside with her.
‘I went with her because I didn’t want to leave her on her own,’ says Katie. She says she wasn’t aware of what Lucy had told Edwards in the text messages. Katie reluctantly got into one vehicle, Lucy in the other. Katie says she went along because she thought they were only going for a short drive and would be back in ‘five minutes’…
When they stopped at a garage in Reading, the girls got out and Katie says she started to cry.
‘I told Lucy I was scared and that I wanted to go back, but she said there was no way we would be able to on our own because we had gone too far.’
So Katie returned to the car. She and Lucy were taken to a local park... Katie says she saw Lucy disappear behind a tree, from where she then began calling Edwards and his friends over ‘one by one’ for sex…
Meanwhile, back in the park, Katie went and sat on a bench and her eyes began to well up again. One of the footballers wouldn’t leave her alone, however, and kept pestering her to perform a sex act on him, which, legally, is still classed as rape.
‘I kept saying 'No, no', but he kept on, so I gave in,’ she says, her voice faltering. ‘I have never done anything like that before, and I would never do it again. That’s the truth’…
Afterwards, she and Lucy were driven back to town and dropped off near to where Lucy lived. By now, Lucy’s parents had realised the girls were missing and had called the police. They were found wandering along a lane in the vicinity of her home at 2am… Katie was reunited with her mother at the police station and, for the third time that night, broke down in tears… The following day, Katie and Lucy were interviewed by detectives.
JAHVON EDWARDS, who lives with his mother in Reading, was subsequently arrested and charged with rape, along with DENNIS DE SOUSA, 19, JAHSON DOWNES, 20, ASHLEY CHARLES, 20, COURTNEY AMOS, 20, and LUKE FARRUGIA, 21.
ALL BUT TWO OF THEM ARE FROM BROKEN HOMES.
In the run-up to their crown court appearance, SEVERAL OF THEM WERE BUSY EXCHANGING CRUDE JOKES ABOUT SEX AND PROSTITUTES ON TWITTER. Take de Sousa, WHOSE OWN FATHER SPENT MUCH OF THE EIGHTIES AND NINETIES IN AND OUT OF PRISON FOR CRIMES INCLUDING AFFRAY AND CONSPIRACY TO SUPPLY DRUGS.
‘Love me some **** (the name given to a particular sex act) and I LOVE a woman that likes to do it,’ he tweeted, followed by: ‘Like what you see, but don’t touch it hoe (street slang for prostitute).’
Amos, BROUGHT UP BY HIS MOTHER and who, until his rape conviction, was hoping to pursue a career as a children’s football coach. He re-tweeted this offering from a friend: ‘I use to be a shy boy when I was young, until I lost my virginity and started **** ******** (slang for pleasuring a woman) females like no tomorrow.’
Or Charles, who has a conviction for assault, and used the ‘hashtag’ (a keyword used to categorise a Tweet) TheJoyOfTeenSex — a reference to the Channel 4 series of the same name. He later describes WHAT HE MIGHT LIKE TO DO TO A FRIEND’S MOTHER…
It was apparent that they see themselves, not the girls, as the real victims of what happened that night. Their conviction remains but their sentences have now been suspended, and they will remain on the Sex Offenders’ Register for ten years.
‘Our lives have been ruined, and none of us are now able to go on and follow the careers that we would have chosen for ourselves,’ said de Sousa, who now lives in a council flat with his father. ‘I feel we were tricked into going to the park with them’ (a reference to the fact that Lucy claimed she was 16 on her Facebook page)…
But isn’t the crux of the matter that he and his five friends were quite prepared to take two young girls, regardless of how old they thought they may or may not have been, to a park with the specific intention of having sex with them?
REPEAT: SIX BOYS. TWO GIRLS.
The judge who jailed them certainly thought so. ‘It is clear to me,’ he told them, ‘that all of you were utterly reckless in what you did that night. Those girls were utterly unknown to you. You saw those girls as utterly willing sexual partners… and behaved towards them as if THEY WERE SIMPLY PIECES OF FLESH, not people.’
The Appeal Court took a more lenient view. You can be the judge of who was right.”
“All but two of them are from broken homes.”
Let me rephrase this: four of the six were absent dads who took no responsibility for raising the child they created. And the dads in question were black. And the children they sired but did not raise would, subsequently, see nothing wrong in having group sex with a twelve-year-old.
Remember this, ladies and gentlemen: it is the Jahvons, the Jahsons, the Ashleys, Courtneys, the De Sousas and Farrugias, that Labour, the LIB Dem and the Cameronian Tories want your daughters to be “enriched” by.
Just as the previous generation was enriched by their absent dads.
On 23 July 2011, Rob Eshman said this in The Jewish Journal:
“ANDERS BEHRING BREIVIK IS NOT AN ANTI-SEMITE. That’s what makes my head spin. If the translations of his writings that I’ve read are accurate, he might even be a PRO-ISRAEL, PHILO-SEMITIC racist Nazi.
With his atrocious massacre of over 90 innocent Norwegian children and adults, Breivik has redefined the stereotype of the European right-wing Christian fundamentalist. Norway once had plenty of them: it’s World War II era prime minister, Quisling, even gave his name to the English language as a word meaning one who toadies to power.
Back then, thousands of blue eyed blond Norwegians joined the SS, helped round up and deport the country’s Jews...
In a July 2009 report entitled, 'Another Year of Anti-Semitism and Anti-Israelism in Norway,' Manfred Gerstenfeld wrote, 'Again over this past year there were significant anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli incidents in Norway. Among these were anti-Semitic television satire programs, an act of the Nazification of Israel by a Norwegian diplomat, physical attacks on a pro-Israeli demonstration, death threats against Jews and a desecration of a Jewish cemetery.'
Gerstenfeld pointd out that some of the anti-semitism is generated in the country’s growing Muslim community. But Breivik was not party to that. In his twisted ideology, the struggle was not between Christians and Jews, but CHRISTIANS AND JEWS VERSUS MUSLIMS. JEWS, AND ESPECIALLY ISRAEL, FORMED THE BULWARK AGAINST MUSLIM DOMINATION OF EUROPE…
It is just bizarre, right, that THE NEW NAZISM EMBRACES THE JEWS AND ISRAEL.”
On 23 July 2011, Patrick O'Flynn said this in The Daily Express:
“Setting out his reasons for wanting a freeze on immigration Lord Glasman, the instigator of the so-called 'Blue Labour' movement, said: 'Britain is not an outpost of the UN. WE HAVE TO PUT THE PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY FIRST.'
A country putting its own people first, you might have thought that such a notion would be wholly uncontroversial. But THE OUTRAGED REACTION OF LEFT-WINGERS, WHO FORCED HIM TO APOLOGISE, AND THE FAILURE OF EVEN TORIES TO SUPPORT GLASMAN TELLS US A LOT ABOUT THE GULF BETWEEN THE POLITICAL SYSTEM AND THE VAST BULK OF THE BRITISH PUBLIC…
ALL THE EVIDENCE SUGGESTS MASS UNCONTROLLED IMMIGRATION WEAKENS BONDS OF COMMUNITY, CAUSING VOTERS TO ASK WHY THEY ARE PAYING TAXES TO BANKROLL PEOPLE WITH WHOM THEY HAVE LITTLE IN COMMON.
But instead of honouring social solidarity at home, MOST MPS ACROSS THE THREE MAIN PARTIES SUPPORT A RIVAL IDEOLOGY THAT IS BEST SUMMED UP BY THE PHRASE 'GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP'. This idea holds that recognising our common humanity should be the dominant force behind political action. Thus IT MARGINALISES THE NATION STATE.
The dominance of the global citizenship view at Westminster explains why, for instance, ALL THREE PARTIES SUPPORT MASSIVELY INCREASING THE OVERSEAS AID BUDGET DESPITE THE PARLOUS STATE OF OUR NATIONAL FINANCES.
Andrew Mitchell, the International Development Secretary, has distilled the rationale for this policy into a SMUG SOUNDBITE: 'THIS GOVERNMENT WILL NOT BALANCE THE BOOKS ON THE BACKS OF THE POOREST CHILDREN IN THE WORLD.' WHENEVER HE UTTERS IT IN THE COMMONS CHAMBER HE GETS VOCAL SUPPORT FROM LIB DEMS, LABOUR MPS AND CAMERON CONSERVATIVES ALIKE.
YET THIS GOVERNMENT IS QUITE CONTENT TO BALANCE THE BOOKS ON THE BACKS OF BRITISH CHILDREN, TREBLING STUDENT FEES, abolishing educational maintenance allowance and planning to scrap child benefit for families with an adult paying 40 per cent income tax.
THE IDEOLOGY OF GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP HAS LED MINISTERS TO PRIORITISE THE CHILDREN OF THE THIRD WORLD SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY ARE POORER.
The great 1945 Labour administration was motivated and sustained by a desire to provide 'homes fit for heroes' – housing for Britain’s returning servicemen and their families who had seen out the Blitz in a shared national endeavour. But THESE DAYS LABOUR IS MORE ENERGISED BY CAMPAIGNING TO PROTECT HUGE HOUSING BENEFIT CHEQUES FOR IMMIGRANT FAMILIES. AND ITS POLICY REVIEW IS FULL OF COMMITTEES CONSIDERING HOW FURTHER TO BOOST OVERSEAS AID…
And why does anyone suppose that David Cameron had the time to go to Africa this week YET DID NOT HAVE THE TIME TO MEET REPRESENTATIVES OF THOSE LOSING THEIR JOBS AT BOMBARDIER IN DERBY AS A RESULT OF A £1.4BILLION GOVERNMENT CONTRACT BEING AWARDED TO A GERMAN RIVAL?
It is because THERE ARE PLAUDITS TO BE WON AMONG THE METROPOLITAN LIBERAL ELITE FOR BEING SEEN TO CARE ABOUT AFRICA BUT NONE ON OFFER FOR PRIORITISING JOBS IN MIDDLE ENGLAND…
Even the NHS will be at risk if people get the idea that WHILE BRITONS PAY FOR IT IT IS AVAILABLE TO HEALTH TOURISTS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD. And in another generation how many people will be ready to fight and die for Britain as so many young men have done in recent years?…
While the elite is inspired by the idea of global citizenship it has little hold on the loyalties of most of us. THE PUBLIC IS FAR MORE LIKELY TO RESPOND TO NATIONAL TIES…
EUROPE’S RULING CLASS SET UP THE EURO BECAUSE IT WAS MOTIVATED BY MANIC INTERNATIONALISM. BUT THE PEOPLES OF EUROPE REMAIN ATTACHED TO THEIR NATIONAL HISTORIES, LANGUAGES AND CULTURES.
In Britain, the Government uses the slogan 'we’re all in it together'. But who are 'we' these days IN A SOCIETY DIVIDED NOT JUST BY CLASS BUT NOW BY ETHNICITY, RELIGION, LANGUAGE AND CULTURE TOO? The new reality is 'every man for himself'.”
On 22 July 2011, Charles Moore said this in The Telegraph:
“I'm starting to think that the Left might actually be right. What with the the phone-hacking scandal, the eurozone crisis and the US economic woes, THE GREEDY FEW HAVE LEFT PEOPLE DISILLUSIONED WITH OUR DEBASED DEMOCRACIES.
It has taken me more than 30 years as a journalist to ask myself this question, but this week I find that I must: is the Left right after all? You see, one of the great arguments of the Left is that what the Right calls ‘THE FREE MARKET’ IS ACTUALLY A SET-UP.
THE RICH RUN A GLOBAL SYSTEM THAT ALLOWS THEM TO ACCUMULATE CAPITAL AND PAY THE LOWEST POSSIBLE PRICE FOR LABOUR. THE FREEDOM THAT RESULTS APPLIES ONLY TO THEM. THE MANY SIMPLY HAVE TO WORK HARDER, IN CONDITIONS THAT GROW EVER MORE INSECURE, TO ENRICH THE FEW. DEMOCRATIC POLITICS, WHICH PURPORTS TO ENRICH THE MANY, IS ACTUALLY IN THE POCKET OF THOSE BANKERS, MEDIA BARONS AND OTHER MOGULS WHO RUN AND OWN EVERYTHING.
In the 1970s and 1980s, it was easy to refute this line of reasoning because it was obvious, particularly in Britain, that it was the trade unions that were holding people back. Bad jobs were protected and good ones could not be created. ‘Industrial action’ did not mean producing goods and services that people wanted to buy, it meant going on strike. The most visible form of worker oppression was picketing. The most important thing about Arthur Scargill’s disastrous miners’ strike was that HE ALWAYS REFUSED TO HOLD A BALLOT ON IT.
A key symptom of popular disillusionment with the Left was the moment, in the late 1970s, when the circulation of Rupert Murdoch’s Thatcher-supporting Sun overtook that of the ever-Labour Daily Mirror. WORKING PEOPLE WANTED TO THROW OFF THE CHAINS THAT KARL MARX HAD CLAIMED WERE SHACKLING THEM – AND JOIN THE BOURGEOISIE WHICH HE HATED… But as we have surveyed the Murdoch scandal of the past fortnight, few could deny that it has revealed how AN INTERNATIONAL COMPANY HAS BULLIED AND BOUGHT ITS WAY TO CONTROL OF PARTY LEADERSHIPS, POLICE FORCES AND REGULATORY PROCESSES… Murdoch himself, like a tired old Godfather, told the House of Commons media committee on Tuesday that HE WAS SO OFTEN COURTED BY PRIME MINISTERS THAT HE WISHED THEY WOULD LEAVE HIM ALONE.
The Left was right that THE POWER OF RUPERT MURDOCH HAD BECOME AN ANTI-SOCIAL FORCE. The Right (in which, for these purposes, ONE MUST INCLUDE THE NEW LABOUR OF TONY BLAIR AND GORDON BROWN) was too slow to see this, partly because it CONFUSED POPULISM AND DEMOCRACY. One of Mr Murdoch’s biggest arguments for getting what he wanted in the expansion of his multi-media empire was the backing of ‘our readers’. But THE NEWS OF THE WORLD AND THE SUN WENT OUT OF THE WAY IN RECENT YEARS TO GIVE THEIR READERS FAR TOO LITTLE INFORMATION TO FORM POLITICAL JUDGMENTS. HIS PAPERS WERE TOOLS FOR HIS POWER…
It has surprised me to read fellow defenders of the free press saying how sad they are that the News of the World closed. IN ITS STUPIDITY, NARROWNESS AND CRUELTY, AND IN ITS METHODS, THE PAPER WAS A DISGRACE TO THE FREE PRESS… It is rather as if supporters of parliamentary democracy were to lament the collapse of the BNP…
The credit crunch has exposed a similar process of how emancipation can be hijacked. The greater freedom to borrow which began in the 1980s was good for most people. A society in which credit is very restricted is one in which new people cannot rise. How many small businesses could start or first homes be bought without a loan? But when loans become the means by which millions finance mere consumption, that is different. And when the banks that look after our money take it away, lose it and then, because of government guarantee, are not punished themselves, something much worse happens. It turns out – as the Left always claims – that A SYSTEM PURPORTING TO ADVANCE THE MANY HAS BEEN PERVERTED IN ORDER TO ENRICH THE FEW. THE GLOBAL BANKING SYSTEM IS AN ADVENTURE PLAYGROUND FOR THE PARTICIPANTS… THE ROLE OF THE REST OF US IS SIMPLY TO PAY...
PEOPLE IN GENERAL HAVE LOST FAITH IN THE FREE-MARKET, WESTERN, DEMOCRATIC ORDER…
As for the plight of the eurozone, this could have been designed by a Left-wing propagandist as a satire of how money-power works. A single currency is created. A single bank controls it. No democratic institution with any authority watches over it, AND WHEN THE ZONE’S BORROWINGS RUN INTO TROUBLE, ELECTED GOVERNMENTS MUST SUBMIT TO ALMOST ANY INDIGNITY RATHER THAN LET BANKERS GET HURT. WHAT ABOUT THE WORKERS? THEY MUST LOSE THEIR JOBS IN PORTO AND PIRAEUS AND PUNCHESTOWN AND POGGIBONSI SO THAT BANKERS IN FRANKFURT AND BUREAUCRATS IN BRUSSELS MAY SLEEP EASILY IN THEIR BEDS…
WE ARE BUST – BOTH ACTUALLY AND MORALLY.”
On 22 July 2011, Martyn Brown told us this in The Daily Mail:
“Meddling eurocrats are demanding that Britain welcomes more immigrants to help the EU’s struggling economy… European Union Home Affairs Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom says immigration and visa-free travel are essential to boost economic fortunes. The Swedish politician has urged member states to welcome more immigrants to help deal with skills shortages, an ageing population and a declining workforce.
Further immigration will boost the economies of EU countries and benefit their residents, she went on. Ms Malmstrom’s comments come after Denmark brought in tougher border controls in response to growing immigration from North Africa."
On 22 July 2011, Charles Moore, former editor of The Daily Telegraph, said this:
“The rich run a global system that allows them to accumulate capital and pay the lowest possible price for labour. The freedom that results applies only to them. THE MANY SIMPLY HAVE TO WORK HARDER, IN CONDITIONS THAT GROW EVER MORE INSECURE, TO ENRICH THE FEW. DEMOCRATIC POLITICS, WHICH PURPORTS TO ENRICH THE MANY, IS ACTUALLY IN THE POCKET OF THOSE BANKERS, MEDIA BARONS AND OTHER MOGULS WHO RUN AND OWN EVERYTHING…
A key symptom of popular disillusionment with the Left was the moment, in the late 1970s, when the circulation of Rupert Murdoch’s Thatcher-supporting Sun overtook that of the ever-Labour Daily Mirror. Working people wanted to throw off the chains that Karl Marx had claimed were shackling them – and join the bourgeoisie which he hated. Their analysis of their situation was essentially correct. The increasing prosperity and freedom of the ensuing 20 years proved them right.
But as we have surveyed the Murdoch scandal of the past fortnight, few could deny that it has revealed how AN INTERNATIONAL COMPANY HAS BULLIED AND BOUGHT ITS WAY TO CONTROL OF PARTY LEADERSHIPS, POLICE FORCES AND REGULATORY PROCESSES. David Cameron, escaping skilfully from the tight corner into which he had got himself, admitted as much. Mr Murdoch himself, like a tired old Godfather, told the House of Commons media committee on Tuesday that HE WAS SO OFTEN COURTED BY PRIME MINISTERS THAT HE WISHED THEY WOULD LEAVE HIM ALONE…
THE POWER OF RUPERT MURDOCH HAD BECOME AN ANTI-SOCIAL FORCE… One of Mr Murdoch’s biggest arguments for getting what he wanted in the expansion of his multi-media empire was the backing of ‘our readers’. But THE NEWS OF THE WORLD AND THE SUN WENT OUT OF THE WAY IN RECENT YEARS TO GIVE THEIR READERS FAR TOO LITTLE INFORMATION TO FORM POLITICAL JUDGMENTS. HIS PAPERS WERE TOOLS FOR HIS POWER, not for that of his readers. When they learnt at last the methods by which the News of the World operated, they withdrew their support...
The credit crunch has exposed a similar process of how emancipation can be hijacked… When the banks that look after our money take it away, lose it and then, because of government guarantee, are not punished themselves, something much worse happens. It turns out… that A SYSTEM PURPORTING TO ADVANCE THE MANY HAS BEEN PERVERTED IN ORDER TO ENRICH THE FEW. THE GLOBAL BANKING SYSTEM IS AN ADVENTURE PLAYGROUND FOR THE PARTICIPANTS, COMPLETE WITH SPONGY, HEALTH-AND-SAFETY APPROVED FLOORING SO THAT THEY BOUNCE WHEN THEY FALL OFF. THE ROLE OF THE REST OF US IS SIMPLY TO PAY…
People in general have lost faith in the free-market, Western, democratic order… The greatest capitalist country in history is now dependent on other people’s capital to survive. In such circumstances, Western democracy starts to feel like a threatened luxury. We can wave banners about ‘life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,’ but they tend to say, in smaller print, ‘Made in China.’
As for the plight of the Euro zone… a single currency is created. A single bank controls it. No democratic institution with any authority watches over it, and WHEN THE ZONE’S BORROWINGS RUN INTO TROUBLE, ELECTED GOVERNMENTS MUST SUBMIT TO ALMOST ANY INDIGNITY RATHER THAN LET BANKERS GET HURT. What about the workers? They must lose their jobs in Porto and Piraeus and Punchestown and Poggibonsi so that bankers in Frankfurt and bureaucrats in Brussels may sleep easily in their beds…
We are bust – both actually and morally.”
On 21 July 2011, The Daily Mirror quoted Martin Fisher, a former Tory councillor on Canterbury City Council, thus:
“Some people like Picasso. I LIKE PICTURES OF CHILDREN WITH NO CLOTHES ON.”
Detective Chief Inspector Paul Fotheringham, head of CID at East Kent, said:
“Throughout the investigation, Fisher refused to accept that he was sexually interested in children, despite using search engines on his computers to look for sites specifically involving sex with children.
He maintained that indecent pictures and explicit paedophilic stories were 'art'. He has also since claimed that he pleaded guilty to save his victims the trauma of going to court and that he was also a victim in the case. We wholeheartedly dispute that.”
The Mirror added:
“Indecent images of children and paedophilic stories downloaded from the internet were found on his home and business computers. Fisher… pleaded guilty to five counts of sexual assault, three of which were on a girl aged under 13. He also admitted 11 counts of possessing and making indecent images of children... In addition to his 15-month jail term, Fisher will spend 10 years on the sex offenders' register.”
On 21 July 2011, the Norwegian Foreign Minister, Jonas Gahr Støre, paid a visit to the Labour Youth League summer camp at Utøya.
As the assembled children waved banners and placards, which amongst other things, demanded that the Norweigian government "boycott Israel", Gahr Store said this:
“THE PALESTINIANS MUST HAVE THEIR OWN STATE, THE OCCUPATION MUST END, THE WALL MUST BE DEMOLISHED AND IT MUST HAPPEN NOW… WE ARE READY TO RECOGNIZE A PALESTINIAN STATE. I await the actual resolution text that the Palestinians will promote at the UN General Assembly in September.”
The above is a Google translation.
On 20 July 2011, Kevin Maguire said this in The Daily Mirror:
“I'm sceptical about Andrew Rosenfeld, Labour's biggest donor. Swiss-based Andrew Rosenfeld’s £1m makes him LABOUR’S BIGGEST SINGLE DONOR since JK Rowling… Rosenfeld… was in with Labour and Blair then out by switching to Cameron as ‘the man for the job’ last summer. A year on, after claiming Labour had ‘run out of time,’ he’s back in with Ed Miliband.”
On 20 July 2011, Cecilia Malmström, the European Union Home Affairs Commissioner, said this:
"Successful integration implies that migrants are given the opportunity to participate fully in their new communities… To date, integration of migrants in Europe has not been very successful. WE MUST ALL DO MORE – FOR THE SAKE OF THE PEOPLE COMING HERE, BUT ALSO SINCE WELL-INTEGRATED MIGRANTS ARE AN ASSET FOR THE EU, AS THEY ENRICH OUR SOCIETIES CULTURALLY AND ECONOMICALLY… This is important for the people coming here, but also for the European economy and welfare, as the demographic challenges ahead mean that WE WILL SOON BE DEPENDENT ON LABOUR MIGRATION IN ORDER TO SUSTAIN OUR WAY OF LIVING…
It is clear that DIVERSITY BROUGHT BY MIGRATION CAN BE A COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE FOR THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIES. For example, a study by Obra Social La Caixa highlights that 30 PERCENT OF SPAIN'S GDP GROWTH IN THE LAST 15 YEARS HAS BEEN DUE TO MIGRANTS SETTLING IN THE COUNTRY. And a report from Caritas Italy from 2010 shows that MIGRANTS REPRESENT AN INCREASING WORKFORCE FOR THE ITALIAN ECONOMY, AS THEY ACCOUNT FOR 11,1 PERCENT OF THE GDP.”
Excuse me, Cecilia, but aren’t Spain and Italy two of the countries that the EU is most worried about right now?
Economically, that is? Aren’t they about to go the way of Greece and Ireland if their economies aren’t bailed out with megatons of Euros and kilotons of our cash too? So why all the happy-clappy look-at-what-immigrants-have-done-for-our-economies b**ocks?
Ah, right. Marxist spin.
For the consumption of the sheeple.
On 20 July 2011, a European Commission press release stated:
“Today the Commission adopted a 'European Agenda for the Integration of Third-Country Nationals' TO ENHANCE THE ECONOMIC, SOCIAL AND CULTURAL BENEFITS OF MIGRATION IN EUROPE…
Both EU citizens and migrants… share a number of views on integration. There is broad agreement on the importance of interaction at work and in schools and on THE POSITIVE CONTRIBUTION OF MIGRANTS TO THE LOCAL CULTURE… EU citizens and migrants participating in the survey also agreed that GREATER EFFORTS ARE NEEDED FROM ALL SIDES IN ORDER TO BENEFIT FROM IMMIGRATION….
DIVERSITY BROUGHT BY MIGRATION, IF WELL MANAGED, CAN BE A COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE AND A SOURCE OF DYNAMISM FOR THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIES.
If the EU is to meet its target to bring the level of employment to 75% by 2020, IT IS VITAL TO REMOVE BARRIERS FOR MIGRANTS' ACCESS TO EMPLOYMENT…
Ensuring that migrants enjoy the same rights and have the same responsibilities as EU citizens is at the core of the integration process. Discrimination and the non recognition of education and experience acquired outside the EU are some of the obstacles putting migrants at risk of unemployment, underemployment and exploitation.
INTEGRATION MUST START WHERE PEOPLE MEET EVERY DAY (WORK PLACES, SCHOOLS, public areas, etc). Measures to strengthen democratic participation should include training and mentors, FACILITATING FOR MIGRANTS TO VOTE IN LOCAL ELECTIONS, CREATING LOCAL, REGIONAL AND NATIONAL CONSULTATIVE BODIES, OR ENCOURAGING ENTREPRENEURSHIP, CREATIVITY AND INNOVATION…
THE INTEGRATION PROCESS REQUIRES CLOSE COOPERATION BETWEEN THE NATIONAL GOVERNMENTS… AND LOCAL OR REGIONAL AUTHORITIES AND NON-STATE ACTORS, WHO ARE IMPLEMENTING INTEGRATION MEASURES ON THE GROUND…
In order to reinforce coordination and knowledge exchange, the Commission is developing A FLEXIBLE EUROPEAN TOOLBOX, consisting of INTEGRATION MODULES to support policies and practices in Member States. They build on the experiences of what works and what does not work to support integration, for example to organise introductory and language courses, ENSURE A STRONG COMMITMENT BY THE RECEIVING SOCIETY and enhance migrants' participation.”
If ever a press release was guaranteed to incense a Scandinavian loony to slaughter sixty eight innocent children it's this one.
Don’t you think?
On 20 July 2011, Enda Kenny, the Irish Taoiseach, made the following statement before the assembled members of the Dáil Éireann on the Commission of Investigation into the Catholic Diocese of Cloyne:
“For the first time in Ireland, a report into child sexual-abuse exposes AN ATTEMPT BY THE HOLY SEE TO FRUSTRATE AN INQUIRY IN A SOVEREIGN, DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC AS LITTLE AS THREE YEARS AGO, not three decades ago. And in doing so, THE CLOYNE REPORT EXCAVATES THE DYSFUNCTION, DISCONNECTION, ELITISM… THE NARCISSISM THAT DOMINATE THE CULTURE OF THE VATICAN TO THIS DAY.
THE RAPE AND TORTURE OF CHILDREN WERE DOWNPLAYED OR 'MANAGED' TO UPHOLD INSTEAD, THE PRIMACY OF THE INSTITUTION, ITS POWER, STANDING AND 'REPUTATION'…
Cloyne's revelations are heart-breaking. It describes how MANY VICTIMS CONTINUED TO LIVE IN THE SMALL TOWNS AND PARISHES IN WHICH THEY WERE REARED AND IN WHICH THEY WERE ABUSED, THEIR ABUSER OFTEN STILL IN THE AREA AND STILL HELD IN HIGH REGARD BY THEIR FAMILIES AND THE COMMUNITY.
The abusers continued to officiate at family weddings and funerals. IN ONE CASE, THE ABUSER EVEN OFFICIATED AT THE VICTIM'S OWN WEDDING…
A day post-publication, the Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade met with the Papal Nuncio to Ireland, Archbishop Giuseppe Leanza. The Tánaiste left the Archbishop clear on two things: THE GRAVITY OF THE ACTIONS AND ATTITUDE OF THE HOLY SEE. AND IRELAND'S COMPLETE REJECTION AND ABHORRENCE OF SAME…
Clericalism has rendered some of Ireland's brightest, most privileged and powerful men, either unwilling or unable to address the horrors cited in the Ryan and Murphy Reports…
Thankfully… this is not Rome… Nor is it industrial-school or Magdalene Ireland, where the swish of a soutane smothered conscience and humanity and the swing of a thurible ruled the Irish-Catholic world.
This is the 'Republic' of Ireland 2011.
A Republic of laws... of rights and responsibilities... of proper civic order... where the delinquency and arrogance of a particular version..... of a particular kind of 'morality'..... will no longer be tolerated or ignored.
As a practising Catholic, I don't say any of this easily. Growing up, many of us in here learned we were part of a pilgrim Church. Today, that Church needs to be a penitent Church. A church, truly and deeply penitent for the horrors it perpetrated, hid and denied…
This report tells us a tale of A FRANKLY BRAZEN DISREGARD FOR PROTECTING CHILDREN. If we do not respond swiftly and appropriately as a State, we will have to prepare ourselves for more reports like this…
The behaviour of Bishop Magee and Monsignor O'Callaghan show how fragile even good standards and policies are to the weakness and wilful disregard of those who fail to give the right priority to safeguarding our children…
But if the Vatican needs to get its house in order, so does this State. The Report of the Commission is rightly critical of the entirely unsatisfactory position which the last Government allowed to persist over many years.
The unseemly bickering between the Minister for Children and the HSE over the statutory powers to deal with extra-familial abuse, the failure to produce legislation to enable the exchange of soft information as promised after the Ferns Enquiry, and the long period of confusion and disjointed responsibility for child protection within the HSE, as reported by the Commission, are simply not acceptable in a society which values children and their safety.
FOR TOO LONG IRELAND HAS NEGLECTED ITS CHILDREN. Just last week we saw a case of the torture of children, within the family, come before the courts. Just two days ago, we were repulsed by the case of a Donegal registered sex offender.and school caretaker. Children and young adults reduced to human wreckage, raising questions and issues of serious import for State agencies…
As Taoiseach, I want to do all I can to protect the sacred space of childhood and to restore its innocence… Safeguarding their integrity and innocence must be a national priority. This is why I undertook to create a Cabinet ministry for Children and Youth Affairs… Cardinal Josef Ratzinger said:
'Standards of conduct appropriate to civil society or the workings of a democracy cannot be purely and simply applied to the Church.'
As the Holy See prepares its considered response to the Cloyne Report, as Taoiseach, I am making it absolutely clear, that when it comes to the protection of the children of this State, THE STANDARDS OF CONDUCT WHICH THE CHURCH DEEMS APPROPRIATE TO ITSELF, CANNOT AND WILL NOT, BE APPLIED TO THE WORKINGS OF DEMOCRACY AND CIVIL SOCIETY IN THIS REPUBLIC.”
Do we think that Catholic priests have been indulging in paedophilia only recently?
Do we think that the Catholic authorities have, only recently, been keeping the matter to themselves and doing to nothing to rectify the situation? Or might these things have been happening in the Western World for more than a thousand years?
With no one daring to speak out.
What price religion, eh?
On 20 July 2011, speaking at Utøya, Eskil Pedersen, leader of the youth wing of Norway's Labour Party, opined thus:
“We like to talk but, as we have seen… Israel not been interested and… though the whole world screams for Israel to comply, they do not. WE IN LABOUR YOUTH WILL HAVE A UNILATERAL ECONOMIC EMBARGO OF ISRAEL…
Israel has moved very far to the right… We should talk to everyone but WE CAN NOT SACRIFICE OUR PRINCIPLES AND OUR POLICIES, just to talk…
I acknowledge that this is a drastic measure, but I think it gives a clear indication that WE ARE TIRED OF ISRAEL'S BEHAVIOR… ISRAEL WILL NOT LISTEN. I think the decision is a sign that WE IN THE AUF ARE TIRED OF ISRAEL…
Labour Youth will have a more activist Middle East policy and WE HAVE TO RECOGNIZE PALESTINE.”
Alexander Sternerud commented thus on Pederson’s remarks in Norway's second largest tabloid newspapern, Dagbladet:
“AUF leader Eskil Pedersen believes the time has come for more drastic measures against Israel, and wants the Foreign Minister to impose an economic boycott against the country.
This week about a thousand members of Labour Youth collect at Utøya to discuss politics. On Thursday Jonas Gahr Store will come to Utøya to debate the Middle East. The Foreign Minister believes in dialogue in the conflict between Israel and Palestine but the leader of AUF Eskil Pedersen has a clear message to the Minister.
AUF HAS LONG BEEN (IN FAVOUR OF) AN INTERNATIONAL BOYCOTT OF ISRAEL, but THE DECISION AT THE LAST CONGRESS, DEMANDING THAT NORWAY IMPOSES A UNILATERAL ECONOMIC EMBARGO OF THE COUNTRY WAS SHARPER THAN BEFORE.
AUF leader says dialogue no longer has anything to offer… and believes it is high time that new measures are adopted. Pedersen believes that the Israeli authorities have now moved so far right that it is impossible to have any conversations with them.”
The above are Google translations.
On 18 July 2011, Andrew Levy said this in The Daily Mail:
“MILLIONS ARE BEING BOMBARDED BY TOWN HALLS WITH INTRUSIVE QUESTIONS ABOUT THEIR PRIVATE LIVES. People are being routinely grilled about their sex lives, disabilities, religion, ethnicity and employment… Some authorities are spending tens of thousands of pounds a year on printing and postage at a time when they are cutting frontline services…
Questions include whether householders are bisexual, gay, lesbian or straight, whether they have a long-term illness or disability and how this affects them, and their ethnicity. Other sections gather information on employment status and age.
They are despatched by councils under a requirement to ‘PROMOTE AND ENSURE’ DIVERSITY under the Equality Act 2010, which was brought in by the last Labour government and consolidated numerous legislation including the Sex Discrimination Act 1975, the Race Relations Act 1976 and the Disability Discrimination Act 1995...
The Mail contacted 30 local authorities and had responses from 14. Of these, 12 said they used the forms to gather information on residents… If the proportion were applied across England and Wales, it would mean 359 of the 419 local authorities request information from residents.
John O’Connell of the TaxPayers’ Alliance accused council chiefs of wasting funds on the ‘irrelevant’ and ‘bizarre’ schemes.
‘Spending reductions have to be made and this is exactly the sort of thing that can be cut with no effect on services,’ he said. ‘Central government must remove ridiculous statutory burdens from councils but in the meantime LOCAL AUTHORITIES SHOULD ENSURE THAT THEY AREN’T DOING MORE THAN IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY TO COMPLY WITH BARMY LEGISLATION.’
A spokesman for the Home Office, which is responsible for the Equality Act 2010, said:
‘THERE IS NOTHING IN THE LEGISLATION THAT STATES THESE FORMS HAVE TO BE SENT OUT’.”
On 18 July 2011, The Telegraph article, ‘Labour’s Anti-Immigration Guru, told us this:
“Maurice Glasman... guru, leading policy adviser and Ed Miliband's magus... His influence has been little short of seismic.”
The Telegraph quotes Lord Glasman thus::
"I don't like Israel. THERE ARE TERRIBLE THINGS GOING ON. The Jewish settler movement is as bad as Islamic jihadist supremacists. What I see with jihadists and settlers is nationalist domination."
Well said, Maurice.
Truth at last from a New Labour bigwig. Though there is a bit of of a sneaky sting in the tale with the "nationalist" = "domination" thing. Just for the record, British Nationalists are pink and fluffy compared to the characters Glasman mentions.
"THERE WAS A REAL CONNECTION BETWEEN ME AND ED... Ed's the leader, and we have to show him love and support... The party, David as well, has got completely to support Ed into growing into the leader he can be'...
We've got to reinterrogate our relationship with the EU on the movement of labour. The EU has gone from being a sort of pig farm subsidised bloc to the free movement of labour and capital. BRITAIN IS NOT AN OUTPOST OF THE UN. WE HAVE TO PUT THE PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY FIRST.”
"There was a real connection between me and Ed."
For sure there is, Maurice, you're both Jewish.
"We have to put the people in this country first."
Enormously nu-thinking here from those who have previously screwed us to the hilt, don't you think? Well, actually, no, but more of that later. Jewish personages were (and still are) massively over-represented in the faction that called for the imposition of mass immigration and political correctness upon the unwary British multitudes. The brute, guilt-making dogma of Cultural Marxism, as political correctness was once known, enabled the politicans and PC Crowd to put the foreigner first throughout the western world without too much compaint from those who would suffer most as a result of the "enriching" of their world by the alien hordes.
So why are representatives of the tribe that played such an enormous part in these movements appearing to stand up for the indigenous majority now?
Well, of course, enough foreign bodies have already been imposed upon us to do away with what we once had anyway. The peaceful, proud, homogenous, secure and stable country of fifty years ago is now gone forever. And, as the alien breeds with such gleeful indiscipline, the situation will only ever get worse for the native Brit. It could also be that the Jew has begun to feel a little anxious now that there are so many Muslims living along side of him. It could be an act. Saying what most of us want to hear in order to get our votes.
However, it isn't any of these things. What has to happen is all laid out in The Protocols. A problem is created. Then a shining white knight comes riding to the rescue of those suffering the problem he, himself, induced. And the gratitude of the sheeple and the lemmings, who imagine that the problem was caused by whatever The Sun and the soon-to-be-with-us Sunday Sun says it was caused by, will know no bounds. And the deleriously grateful dumb will then ensure that their rescuers remain in power and control forever.
That would be my guess. That's why I think the leader for whom we all must demonstrate our "love and support" and his "anti-immigration guru" are speaking out for what we all want now.
Check out The Protocols of the Eders of Zion.
On 18 July 2011, The Daily Mail told us this:
“A property tycoon who became embroiled in the cash-for-honours controversy has become LABOUR LEADER ED MILIBAND’S BIGGEST DONOR. ANDREW ROSENFELD, WHO HAS AN ESTIMATED £100MILLION FORTUNE, HAS PLEDGED TO POUR £1MILLION INTO LABOUR’S COFFERS to help the party win back marginal seats…
The Tories have pointed to Mr Rosenfeld’s involvement in the cash for honours controversy. He was one of the 12 secret donors to Labour under Mr Blair’s regime… Rosenfeld had been in line for a peerage, along with seven other businessmen who financially aided the party.”
On 18 July 2011, Leo McKinstry said this in The Daily Express:
“Protection of our country used to be the absolute first duty of any Government but, UNDER THE COALITION, DEFENCE POLICY IS RAPIDLY DESCENDING INTO A SCHIZOPHRENIC FARCE. Ever greater burdens have been placed on the military by A POLITICAL CLASS OBSESSED WITH GLOBAL POSTURING yet at the same time the cuts in the armed forces are becoming ever more severe.
THANKS TO THE SPINELESS, UNPATRIOTIC, SELF-SATISFIED MEDIOCRITIES WHO HAVE RUN BRITAIN FOR THE PAST 15 YEARS WE HAVE ENDED UP WITH THE WORST OF ALL WORLDS. Successive governments have decided that BRITAIN SHOULD ACT AS MIX OF POLICEMAN AND SOCIAL WORKER ON THE INTERNATIONAL STAGE, THEREBY PLUNGING US INTO A HOST OF CONFLICTS THAT HAVE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH OUR NATIONAL INTERESTS. BUT MINISTERS HAVE DEPRIVED THE MILITARY OF THE CAPABILITY TO CARRY OUT THIS ROLE.
THE REFUSAL TO PROVIDE PROPER RESOURCES TO MEET ALL THE GLOBAL COMMITMENTS THAT OUR POLITICIANS HAVE SO RECKLESSLY IMPOSED AMOUNTS TO A LETHAL BETRAYAL.
We were once one of the greatest military powers on Earth, our mighty influence reflected in our heroic victories in two world wars and our daring recapture of the Falkland Islands in 1982. Yet today, that prestige has vanished as our military decline accelerates. While other departments, PARTICULARLY OVERSEAS AID, education and SOCIAL SECURITY, have enjoyed big increases in their budgets, THE MINISTRY OF DEFENCE HAS TAKEN AN AXE TO ITS FRONT-LINE SERVICES.
The Government is about to announce that, over the next decade, THE REGULAR ARMY IS TO BE REDUCED BY 17,000 FROM ITS PRESENT STRENGTH OF 101,000 TO JUST 84,000 IN 2020, a drastic loss of professional soldiering that cannot be compensated by promises of increased funding for the Territorials.
The butchery is perhaps even worse in the other two services. BY 2015 THE RAF WILL HAVE FEWER COMBAT AIRCRAFT THAN SWEDEN, AND THE NAVY WILL SHRINK TO ITS SMALLEST SIZE SINCE THE MID-17TH CENTURY. Thanks to the scrapping of the HMS Ark Royal and its fleet of Harrier jets BRITAIN NOW HAS NO AIRCRAFT CARRIER AT ALL, a bizarre position for a nation that once ruled the waves and pioneered naval aviation…
Last weekend, the Defence Select Committee issued its report about British operations in Helmand province in Afghanistan since 2006. The Committee’s scathing analysis was that THE TASKFORCE HAD FAILED TO OVERWHELM THE TALIBAN BECAUSE IT WAS POORLY EQUIPPED AND UNDER-RESOURCED, with just five Chinook helicopters, only 3,150 men and LITTLE MORE THAN HALF OF THE VEHICLES REQUIRED, NONE OF WHICH WERE CAPABLE OF WITHSTANDING THE DEADLY ATTACKS FROM THE TALIBAN’S IMPROVISED EXPLOSIVE DEVICES. This is largely why the death toll has continued to mount so remorselessly, recently passing 370. Only yesterday yet another British soldier was killed…
It is grotesque that British lives are being sacrificed to massage the egos of politicians who like to strut the global stage as do-gooding statesmen. Apart from the astonishing, selfless bravery of our troops, THERE IS NOT A SHRED OF MORALITY BEHIND ANY OF THESE INTERVENTIONS.
WE ARE TOLD WE HAVE TO FIGHT IN AFGHANISTAN TO CRUSH MUSLIM EXTREMISM AND PROMOTEWOMEN’S RIGHTS YET THE GOVERNMENT HAS ALLOWED MISOGYNISTIC ISLAMISM AND SHARIA LAW TO FLOURISH AT HOME, THANKS TO OUR OPEN BORDERS AND THE DOGMA OF MULTICULTURALISM.
In the same vein, the anti-Gaddafi rebel movement that our Government supports in Libya is riddled with anti-western Muslims, just as much of the £52million aid package that the Government announced for Somalia yesterday will be handed directly to local Muslims. The Government is sinking in a quagmire of its own contradictions. Illogically, we fight against Muslims in one part of the world and back them with cash and arms in another.
FROM DAVID CAMERON TO ED MILIBAND, THEY HAVE NO INSTINCTIVE SENSE OF NATIONAL PRIDE. ALL THAT MATTERS TO THEM IS THEIR GLOBAL IMAGE. THAT IS WHY THEY PREFER TO SPEND ON FOREIGN AID RATHER THAN DEFENCE AND WHY THEY SHOW MORE DETERMINATION IN SLASHING TROOP NUMBERS THAN IMMIGRATION NUMBERS.”
On 18 July 2011, The Sun told us that "a police intelligence expert tasked with assessing the greatest criminal threats to South Yorkshire" had said the following:
"There is no threat from killers, muggers, rapists, or from al-Qaeda. The sole danger to South Yorks is FROM OUR 'SATANIC; GOVERNMENT, WHICH CARRIED OUT THE 7/7 BOMBINGS. THIS SAME GOVERNMENT IS ONLY AT WAR IN AFGHANISTAN TO SEIZE CONTROL OF THE HEROIN TRADE. GEORGE BUSH BLEW UP THE TWIN TOWERS."
Here is what The Sun (The Rupert and James Murdoch, Rebekah Brooks rag) verdict on this intelligence expert's evaluation:
"The fact that even a top intelligence analyst can be taken in by the lunatic conspiracy theories spreading like a virus via the internet illustrates just how beguiling and dangerous they are. At once, they destroy the authority of politicians and police and minimise the real threat, from al-Qaeda.
We are lucky in Britain that still only a gullible minority are seduced."
Well, I guess the Sun-reading lemmings will believe what the Murdoch jobsworths want them to be believe. As for the rest of us, any "intelligence expert" brave enough to state a case NOT officially sanctioned by the powers-that-be would rate pretty highly when compared with the media's top Zionist and his hackgate lieutenants.
Simon Wolfson, the 37th most important Conservative according to The Daily Telegraph, was created Baron Wolfson of Aspley Guise at David Cameron’s behest.
His father, David Wolfson, was Margaret Thatcher’s Chief of Staff from 1979 until 1985. She had him knighted in 1984 and he was raised to the peerage in 1991 becoming Baron Wolfson of Sunningdale.
On 17 July 2011, The Telegraph quoted Simon Wolfson thus:
“This crazy political correctness has to end. It is time for a rebellion as it's making us all deeply racist. Please, lets stop filling in diversity forms. They are turning us all into racists. That's why I am launching a campaign to encourage us all to tick the 'mixed other' or 'black' boxes. After all, AREN'T WE ALL BLACK OR MIXED?…
WHAT THIS COUNTRY NEEDS IS MORE IMMIGRATION, NOT LESS… We need more roads like China where cities like Shanghai have 10-lane highways… Go to Bangladesh and you see they are building new roads, filling the holes and banning the rickshaws. Here in London, we are doing the exact opposite. It's time politicians provided what we want."
Political correctness was directly responsible for mass immigration, pal, you can’t have it both ways.
Oh, I was forgetting, you’re Jewish, you can have it both ways, can’t you?
How politically incorrect of me to mention the fact that an elite Jew wants even more immigration. Which happens to be the exact opposite of “what we want”.
Oh, and we don’t want any of your 10-lane Chinese highways in our country either. China is massive, we are tiny in comparison. Concreting over England’s green and pleasant land is most definitely not WHAT WE WANT!
Historically the Jews have always preferred the city to the countryside. Oops! There’s me being politically incorrect again. Spilling the beans on the Hebrews’ antipathy to the pastoral idyll. Still, as long as I’ve got Baron Wolfson on my side I should be OK.
PS. David Wolfson and Keith Joseph were Margaret Thatcher’s top advisors before she became Prime Minister and for some years afterwards.
Both of them were Jewish.

On 17 July 2011, The Sunday Independent told us this:
“The MP who will lead the attack on Rebekah Brooks and Rupert and James Murdoch this week over their roles in the phone-hacking scandal HAS CLOSE LINKS WITH THE MEDIA EMPIRE, it is revealed today.
John Whittingdale, the Conservative chairman of the Culture, Media and Sport committee, admitted HE WAS AN OLD FRIEND OF MR MURDOCH'S CLOSE AIDE, LES HINTON, AND HAD BEEN FOR DINNER WITH MS BROOKS.
The Independent on Sunday has also learnt that Mr MURDOCH'S DAUGHTER ELISABETH, SEEN AS THE FUTURE SAVIOUR OF THE COMPANY, HAS ALSO MET MR WHITTINGDALE A NUMBER OF TIMES. Among her 386 'friends' on Facebook, THE ONLY MP SHE LISTS IS MR WHITTINGDALE. HE IS ALSO THE ONLY MP AMONG 93 FACEBOOK 'FRIENDS' OF MR HINTON.
It is also understood that the MP for Maldon was invited to Mr Hinton's wedding reception in 2009 but declined to accept in light of the committee's ongoing investigation into hacking. Mr Hinton resigned as chief executive of Mr Murdoch's Dow Jones company on Friday.
While there is no suggestion of impropriety on the part of the Tory MP – an aide to Margaret Thatcher when she was Prime Minister – the disclosure will fuel the sense that ALL THE KEY PLAYERS IN THE SCANDAL ARE INEXTRICABLY LINKED AS MEMBERS OF THE ESTABLISHMENT.
It follows revelations that senior police officers, including Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Sir Paul Stephenson, had dinner with senior executives from News International…
It is understood that the committee came under pressure from Conservative Central Office before last year's election over its investigation of the phone-hacking scandal, suggesting that the MPS SOFT-PEDALLED ON THE ISSUE.
Difficulties emerged in Downing Street's attempt to be open about David Cameron's social and business meetings when inconsistencies came to light in his office's list, published on Friday, of his meetings with senior News International journalists. THE LIST OMITTED, FOR EXAMPLE, MS BROOKS'S ATTENDANCE AT MR CAMERON'S BIRTHDAY PARTY IN OCTOBER. 'That is a total oversight,' said a No 10 source. 'IT IS NOT A COVER UP'…
Detectives investigating phone-hacking allegations at the News of the World are keen to question two former senior journalists at the newspaper. Scotland Yard officers have been told the two, former executive editor ALEX MARUNCHAK and deputy news editor GREG MISKIW, were both key figures linked to the use of private investigators to access confidential information.
Rebekah Brooks appointed Mr Miskiw as the News of the World's assistant editor in charge of news, and it was he who employed Glenn Mulcaire, the private investigator at the heart of the phone-hacking scandal.
Last month Mr Miskiw's former girlfriend TERENIA TARAS was arrested and questioned for several hours by Metropolitan Police officers in West Yorkshire…
Mr Miskiw is known to be a close friend of Mr Marunchak, a former crime reporter and senior executive at the NOTW. The two reportedly had mutual business arrangements including the importation of vodka from Ukraine. MR MARUNCHAK, WHO LEFT THE NEWSPAPER IN 2006, CLAIMS TO HAVE BEEN APPOINTED AS A SPECIAL ADVISER TO UKRAINE'S UK EMBASSY IN 1999.
Mr Marunchak is said to be a friend of a private investigator called Jonathan Rees who was employed by the NOTW to help provide reporters with illegally obtained confidential information. REES WAS LATER JAILED FOR FALSELY PLANTING COCAINE IN AN INNOCENT WOMAN'S CAR BUT WAS RE-EMPLOYED BY THE NOTW'S EDITOR ANDY COULSON AFTER HE SERVED HIS SENTENCE.
DETECTIVES ALSO SUSPECTED REES OF BRIBING CORRUPT OFFICERS TO SUPPLY INFORMATION TO THE MEDIA. A surveillance operation was carried out on Rees including a bug being placed in his office. It was later revealed that among the hours of taped conversations were many between Mr Marunchak and Rees discussing transactions involving thousands of pounds for work carried out for the newspaper.
Police later discovered that NOTW reporters were carrying out surveillance on the senior officer investigating a murder. Concerned that this might be an effort to pervert the course of justice, senior officers confronted Rebekah Brooks at Scotland Yard about Mr Marunchak's relationship with Rees. It is understood that Ms Brooks defended Mr Marunchak strongly.”
On 17 July 2011, Simon Walters and Glen Owen told us this in The Daily Mail:
“It was the highlight of the summer season for the Chipping Norton Set. Rupert Murdoch's daughter Elisabeth and her PR tycoon husband Matthew Freud threw a party of decadent opulence and excess that saw the political and media elite flock to their 22-bedroom Cotswolds mansion Burford Priory yet again.
JUST 24 HOURS LATER, THE NEWS BROKE THAT MURDERED SCHOOLGIRL MILLY DOWLER'S MOBILE HAD BEEN HACKED BY RUPERT MURDOCH'S NEWS OF THE WORLD NEWSPAPER and his global empire was plunged into disarray.
The Murdoch-Freuds' marathon all-night party, which started on the evening of July 2 and ended at noon the following day, could turn out to be its last hurrah. The party guest list paints a telling picture of the powerful web of influence that the couple had spun before the hacking crisis erupted. It reads like A ROLL CALL OF THE MODERN ESTABLISHMENT – WITH THE MURDOCHS AND OTHER NEWS INTERNATIONAL EXECUTIVES AT THE HUB.
The group has been dubbed the Chipping Norton Set because its key members, INCLUDING PRIME MINISTER DAVID CAMERON, all own homes within a few miles of the Oxfordshire town. One prominent member of the set described its allure – and its value to the Murdochs.
'It is like THE SOCIAL WING OF THE MURDOCH MEDIA EMPIRE. RUPERT WIELDS HIS INFLUENCE THROUGH HIS NEWSPAPER AND TV NETWORK. ELISABETH AND MATTHEW FEED OFF THIS BY PROVIDING A LINK BETWEEN THE WORLDS OF POLITICS, BUSINESS AND SHOWBUSINESS. THEIR WEALTH MEANS THEY CAN PROVIDE FOR THEM ALL TO MEET IN COMPLETE PRIVACY AT BURFORD. Behind it all is the unspoken assumption that if you are out of favour with Rupert Murdoch, you are not likely to get invited.'
The party, held two weekends ago, reveals the extent of the couple's connections on both sides of the Commons. As a jazz band played in the landscaped gardens of the £6 million property, Mr Freud, who was wearing leather trousers, greeted guests, including EDUCATION SECRETARY MICHAEL GOVE AND CULTURE MINISTER ED VAIZEY. They drank champagne in the company of FORMER LABOUR CABINET MINISTERS PETER MANDELSON, DAVID MILIBAND, JAMES PURNELL AND DOUGLAS ALEXANDER.
Steve Hilton, Mr Cameron's shaven-headed policy guru, who was there with his forceful wife, Google communications chief Rachel Whetstone, was seen 'laughing giddily' across the political divide with Lord Mandelson and Mr Miliband.
At the centre of the throng, Elisabeth's brother, James Murdoch, the deputy chief operating officer of News Corp, was locked in conversation with Rebekah Brooks, who resigned on Friday as chief executive of News International.
Although the bombshell Milly Dowler phone hacking had not yet become public knowledge, Ms Brooks clearly knew she was in trouble. One witness said: 'Usually, Rebekah flits around having a word with everyone. She loves being the centre of attention. But that night she spent nearly all her time with News International people.'
Some partygoers say there were clear signs of tension in the Murdoch clan. Shortly before her resignation, Elisabeth Murdoch reportedly erupted in fury at the way Ms Brooks has damaged News International, saying she had ****** the company.
The festivities started at 7pm on the Saturday evening, with the dancing – and drinking – continuing until 4am. Lord Mandelson was particularly 'vigorous', one guest said. Guests could wander into two opulent marquees laid on by entrepreneur Nick Jones, who had created two miniature versions of his London restaurants, Pizza East and Cecconi's. Mr Jones's fashionable Soho House chain of clubs and restaurants is promoted by his host's PR company, Freud Communications. With Mr Jones was his wife, broadcaster Kirsty Young.
Partygoers could also try their hand at driving an E-type Jaguar parked in the priory's grounds to provide extra entertainment. Those 'sleeping over' were offered Sunday brunch.
Will Lewis, the group general manager of News International, spent a large part of the evening in a conspiratorial huddle with his old friend BBC business editor ROBERT PESTON, who has broken many of the stories during the hacking scandal. Some media commentators speculating about Mr Peston's 'inside track' on the story have highlighted the close personal and professional relationship between the two men.
The BBC's director-general Mark Thompson, corporation executive Alan Yentob and Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson – another member of the Chipping Norton Set and responsible for introducing Mrs Brooks to her husband, Old Etonian Charlie Brooks – were also present.
Clarkson's wife, Francie, came to the party 'but did not seem to be with Jeremy', according to one guest. The couple's relationship is reported to have been under strain following newspaper claims that Mr Clarkson had an affair with a member of his production staff.
Veteran Channel 4 presenter Jon Snow enjoyed the Freuds' hospitality at Burford, as did CNN host and Mail on Sunday columnist Piers Morgan, who joked on arriving with wife Celia Walden:
'I've never seen so many people who hate each other together in one room.'
Morgan was joined by actress Helena Bonham Carter, explorer Bear Grylls and TV presenter Mariella Frostrup. After a brief welcome speech, Elisabeth Murdoch invited guests to visit their luxurious private cinema, where the heavyweight boxing match between David Haye and Wladimir Klitschko was being screened.
Ulster-born comedian Patrick Kielty watched the contest with singer Lily Allen, new husband Sam Cooper and Freud. David Tang and Andrew Davies, whose Von Essen Hotels chain went into administration in April, were also there.
Intriguingly, former Culture Secretary Tessa Jowell – a victim of phone-hacking herself – turned up with her estranged husband, lawyer David Mills. Five years ago, the pair announced they had separated when Mr Mills was accused of corruption in an Italian court, a charge later thrown out. Some observers claimed the split was a ploy to distance herself from his problems, something that Ms Jowell denies.”
On 17 July 2011, Peter Hitchens opined thus in his Daily Mail article, ‘What do you think is worse: Phone hacking or buying votes with blood?’
“Since we are to have a Judicial Inquiry into the wicked Press, SHOULDN’T WE ALSO HAVE ONE INTO WICKED POLITICIANS? Journalists can be nasty, and newspapers beastly, but THEIR MISDEEDS ARE AS NOTHING SET BESIDE THOSE OF GOVERNMENTS. Governments also hack into phones, poke their noses into our personal affairs and misuse the information they obtain.
GOVERNMENTS BREAK UP FAMILIES IN SECRET AND HOLD INCREASING NUMBERS OF TRIALS IN SECRET, TOO. GOVERNMENTS SELL INFORMATION ABOUT US TO OUTSIDERS. THE STATE RECORDS OUR EMAILS, spies on our rubbish bins and uses airport X-ray machines to peer sneakily at our naked bodies. It knows what we earn and where we live and monitors our medical records. IT TAKES AN INCREASINGLY CREEPY INTEREST IN WHAT WE THINK AND SAY…
However, these are minor crimes when set beside the other things governments do. NEWSPAPERS DON’T BOMB BELGRADE OR BAGHDAD OR TRIPOLI, OR INVADE AFGHANISTAN AND THEN FORGET WHY THEY DID IT. NEWSPAPERS DON’T WATERBOARD PEOPLE, OR BUNDLE THEM OFF TO CLANDESTINE PRISONS. NEWSPAPERS DON’T RELEASE HUNDREDS OF CONVICTED TERRORISTS ON TO THE STREETS NOR THOUSANDS OF CONVICTED ORDINARY CRIMINALS EITHER. NEWSPAPERS DON’T OPEN OUR FRONTIERS TO HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF UNCHECKED MIGRANTS.
But you may – rightly – say: What about the newspapers that have helped governments do some or all of these things?… The Murdoch Press slobbered for years at the feet of the Blair government. They had a price. THE MURDOCH EMPIRE WANTED BRITAIN TO GO TO WAR, IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN. THE GROTESQUE SCREECHING OF LIES THAT STAMPEDED US INTO THESE WARS WAS A JOINT OPERATION BETWEEN NEWS INTERNATIONAL AND THE DARK HEART OF ALASTAIR CAMPBELL’S DOWNING STREET.
Then, when New Labour sagged, the same deal was on offer to anyone else cynical enough to accept it. I have never forgotten October 2, 2009, when DAVID CAMERON PAID HIS FIRST INSTALMENT TO RUPERT MURDOCH, IN RETURN FOR HIS PAPERS’ SUPPORT IN THE COMING ELECTION. He promised a closer engagement in Afghanistan:
‘IF I’M PRIME MINISTER, WHITEHALL WILL GO TO WAR FROM MINUTE ONE, HOUR ONE, DAY ONE THAT I WALK THROUGH THE DOOR OF DOWNING STREET.’
He made other promises, driven by public opinion. But nobody, in September 2009, wanted us to get deeper into Afghanistan. NOBODY, THAT IS, EXCEPT MR MURDOCH.
In short, Mr CAMERON WAS QUITE READY (AS HE HAS SINCE PROVED) TO SEND PEOPLE TO THEIR DEATHS IN HELMAND AND TO ALLOW MANY MORE TO BE MAIMED FOR LIFE, TO SECURE THE SUPPORT OF THE SUN DURING THE ELECTION CAMPAIGN. THIS WAS ONE PLEDGE HE UNEQUIVOCALLY KEPT.
From that moment, I decided that Mr CAMERON WAS PERSONALLY DISGUSTING AS WELL AS POLITICALLY WRETCHED. I think paying for office with the blood and limbs of other people is quite a lot worse than hacking into Milly Dowler’s phone, even if it isn’t illegal.
And I’d like to hear Mr Cameron’s account – on oath – of the negotiations that led to this bargain.
Just as I’d like to hear Anthony Blair’s account – on oath – of what he promised these people and what role they played in the carnage he unleashed in Iraq.”
Me too, Peter.
Me too. Thing is, you don’t tell us why Murdoch wanted us to go to war. Nor do you tell us that he is the international media’s foremost Zionist. Which would give us a major clue as to his warmongering motives.
Your anger with the political elite is, I’m sure, not a put on, Peter. But as long as you and so many like you refuse to explain the root cause of the political and media corruption that besets our world at this moment in time, your outrage will, perpetually, fail to hit the spot. Consequently, your readership will remain as uninformed of the facts of the matter as ever.
And nothing will change.
Hitchens also said this:
“Say this to yourself slowly. A QUARTER OF THE POPULATION OF BOSTON, LINCOLNSHIRE, ARE IMMIGRANTS FROM EASTERN EUROPE, PORTUGAL AND ASIA…
I first visited Boston 25 years ago when it was such a settled place that people from outside that part of Lincolnshire (me) were actually called ‘foreigners’ by the locals. The repeated warnings from Sir Andrew Green of MigrationWatch, that THE COUNTRY IS BEING TRANSFORMED BY MIGRANTS, are plainly true.
The only remaining question is whether IT IS A DELIBERATE POLICY or mere incompetence.”

On 17 July 2011, The Daily Mail told us this:
“Rupert Murdoch's children are turning on each other over the phone hacking scandal engulfing his media empire… Michael Wolff, a biographer of the billionaire tycoon… claimed the simmering family tensions exploded into the open at a book launch last Sunday for political analyst Philip Gould. It was hosted by her husband, public relations guru Matthew Freud, and Times editor, James Harding.
Miss Murdoch… has denied she had said something similar about ousted News International chief executive and her father's favourite, Rebekah Brooks. But Wolff claimed on Twitter that those reports were 'incomplete', Tweeting: 'She said: 'James and Rebekah f***** the company.'
Miss Murdoch is understood to be 'furious' by the meltdown of her father's worldwide empire. The crisis has led to the closure of the News of the World, the resignations of Ms Brooks, the arrest of former News of the World editor Andy Coulson and the launch of an FBI investigation in America into alleged hacking of 9/11 victims.
On Friday, loyal Dow Jones chief executive Les Hinton, who had worked for Rupert Murdoch for 52 years, resigned and now scrutiny is resting on her brother James. Wolff, a long-time critic of the deputy chief operating officer of News Corporation, told the Observer:
'What we are seeing is an enormous amount of frustration. James absolutely cannot survive. Whether or not he is legally culpable, he certainly mishandled this entire situation and has done for a long period of time… Rupert will be put out to pasture and an outsider not named Murdoch will be put in charge’…
James Murdoch, heir to the media dynasty, has admitted that HE MISLED PARLIAMENT OVER THE HACKING SCANDAL… He had wrongly maintained' it was carried out by just one reporter, and said it was 'a matter of serious regret' that he had approved out-of-court settlements with victims without knowing the full facts.”
On 16 July 2011, Sean Rayment, Defence Correspondent of The Daily Mail, told us this:
“THE ARMY IS TO BE CUT IN SIZE BY 17,000 SOLDIERS in a radical overhaul of the armed forces... THE REORGANISATION WILL SEE THE ARMY SHRINK TO ITS SMALLEST SIZE SINCE THE BOER WAR…
Members of the Territorial Army, the Royal Naval Reserve and the Royal Air Force Volunteers Reserve will receive better pay and conditions, but MORE WILL BE EXPECTED TO TAKE PART IN DANGEROUS MILITARY OPERATIONS WHEN NEEDED…
By 2020 THE ARMY WILL BE REDUCED FROM ITS PRESENT STRENGTH OF 101,000 REGULARS, TO 84,000.”
On 16 July 2011, in the wake of the announcement that the military would see 17,000 jobs go by 2020, The Sunday Telegraph quoted the irritation a “senior defence source” felt with the state of the Territorial Army thus:
“Over the last few years THERE HAVE BEEN A SERIES OF BAD REORGANISATIONS WHICH HAVE UNDERMINED THE STRUCTURE OF THE RESERVES AND HAVE DRIVEN OUT MANY OF THE BEST OFFICERS. Training funds have virtually stopped and PEOPLE HAVE BEEN LEAVING IN DROVES.
The TA has been reorganised seven times in the last 20 years. One review five years ago produced an infantry structure WHICH PREVENTED THE TA FROM CONDUCTING PROPER COLLECTIVE TRAINING, together with an 80 per cent recruiting cap… The reserves are a valuable resource and THEY ARE BEING WASTED.”
The Telegraph said:
“During the Iraq War in 2004, TA soldiers made up a fifth of the British force in the country. At present they account for an eighth of the British strength in Afghanistan, A FIGURE WHICH THE GOVERNMENT WANTS TO INCREASE.”
The reason for the “increase” was explained as follows:
“One of the key drivers of the review has been THE COST OF RESERVES COMPARED WITH REGULAR FORCES. Defence sources have told The Sunday Telegraph that FIVE LIGHT ROLE TERRITORIAL INFANTRY BATTALIONS COST A FIFTH OF THE AMOUNT NEEDED TO TRAIN A REGULAR INFANTRY BATTALION.”
On 16 July 2011, Laura Donnelly said this in The Daily Mail:
“A dossier compiled by major charities says DESPERATELY SICK ELDERLY PEOPLE HAVE BEEN LEFT SCREAMING IN PAIN, WITH OTHERS GIVEN THE WRONG DRUGS, WHILE FAMILIES WERE DENIED CRUCIAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE HEALTH OF THEIR LOVED ONES…
The report was compiled by charities Age UK and The Health Foundation following research showing that EVERY DAY, SEVEN OUT OF TEN CARE HOME RESIDENTS ARE VICTIMS OF DRUG ERRORS, WITH ELDERLY PEOPLE BEING GIVEN THE WRONG MEDICATION, MISSING DOSES, AND NOT BEING MONITORED FOR SIDE EFFECTS…
Sleeping pills were given during the day, leaving residents unsteady on their feet during the evenings. Creams prescribed for one person were shared, causing infections to spread between residents…
Relatives said MANY STAFF DID NOT HAVE ENGLISH AS A FIRST LANGUAGE, LEADING TO COMMUNICATION PROBLEMS, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT CAME TO CONVERSATIONS ABOUT MEDICATION, INCREASING THE RISK OF DANGEROUS ERRORS.
One elderly woman was repeatedly given codeine despite warnings on her medical records that the drug made her very ill – on one occasion so dangerously so that she had to be rushed to hospital. Another resident due to have paracetamol daily was instead given a high-risk drug, when her regular nurse was on holiday. When the nurse checked her records, THREE SEPARATE MEMBERS OF STAFF HAD MADE THE SAME MISTAKE IN THE SAME WEEK.
The 26 interviewees spoke to the charities on condition of anonymity. SEVERAL EXPRESSED FEARS THAT MAKING COMPLAINTS LEAD TO 'REPERCUSSIONS' FOR THEIR RELATIVES OR FRIENDS BEHIND CLOSED DOORS…
High use of agency care meant staff were unlikely to get to know residents or each other, the report said. Nor did care homes communicate properly with hospitals, despite the fact their frail residents paid repeated visits to them…
Neil Duncan-Jordan, from the National Pensioners Convention, said THE FAILINGS REFLECTED A WIDER SYSTEM IN CRISIS, WITH SOME ELDERLY PEOPLE IN CARE HOMES TREATED WORSE THAN ANIMALS.
'The accounts are gut-wrenching… We are talking about people who can earn more working on the checkout of their local supermarket. WHEN YOU HAVE A SYSTEM THAT HAS BADLY-PAID, POORLY-TRAINED STAFF ADMINISTERING TO THE MOST VULNERABLE AND DEPENDENT PEOPLE IN OUR SOCIETY, THOSE ARE THE INGREDIENTS FOR A SYSTEM TO FAIL”
On 16 July 2011, Patrick O'Flynn said this in The Daily Express:
“POLITICIANS WAFFLE AS OUR INDUSTRIES DIE…
Up the road in Derby transport manufacturing is thankfully still big business at Rolls-Royce and at the British base of Bombardier, the trainmaker. Yet ONE OF THESE LINCHPINS OF EAST MIDLANDS MANUFACTURING HAS JUST BEEN DEALT A DEVASTATING BLOW BY THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT.
Bombardier has lost out on a £1.4billion contract BECAUSE THE DEPARTMENT FOR TRANSPORT HAS GIVEN THE WORK TO THE GIANT GERMAN CORPORATION SIEMENS…
This week in Parliament, unnoticed amid the furore about News International, the local MPs debated the issue. And THE DEBATE DISCLOSED SHOCKING THINGS ABOUT THE WAY THIS COUNTRY IS RUN. For a start, Conservative MP Pauline Latham (Mid Derbyshire) revealed the astounding complacency of Transport Secretary Philip Hammond. Here is what she said:
'Over the months during which we have been waiting for the decision, I personally lobbied the Secretary of State for Transport on several occasions. Unfortunately, he told me every single time that I WAS NOT TO WORRY BECAUSE BOMBARDIER WAS FINE AND WAS NOT GOING TO PULL OUT OF THIS COUNTRY as the company had lots of orders and would have no problem going forward. That is clearly not the case so he misread the situation.'
Actually, the real position for Bombardier, as set out by Labour MP Chris Williamson (Derby North), is dire:
'From the autumn, Bombardier will have work for barely 300 workers to finish off a contract for sub-surface trains for the London Underground, which means that 3,000 PEOPLE WHO ARE EMPLOYED DIRECTLY BY BOMBARDIER AND AT LEAST A FURTHER 12,000 IN THE SUPPLY CHAIN COULD LOSE THEIR JOBS WITHIN THE NEXT 12 MONTHS.'
More startling still was the evidence presented about the Department For Transport’s bias against Britain. Conservative Nigel Mills (Amber Valley) revealed:
'Out of 14 bids Bombardier made for contracts from operating or rolling stock companies it has won 11. But OUT OF FIVE BIDS WHERE THE DFT WAS RUNNING THE PROCESS IT HAS WON NONE… Is that just bad luck or does it suggest that THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH HOW THE DFT PROCURES THE CONTRACTS?… There is the suggestion that THE VERY STRUCTURE OF THE TENDER PROCESS MADE IT HARD FOR BOMBARDIER TO WIN...
ONE SUSPECTS IT IS MUCH EASIER FOR A HUGE MULTINATIONAL, DIVERSIFIED CONGLOMERATE WITH A BRILLIANT CREDIT RATING TO PRODUCE THE CHEAPEST BID RATHER THAN THE GROUP THAT CAN BUILD THE BEST TRAINS‘...
It is telling that Hammond could not find time to attend the debate, but sent junior minister Theresa Villiers to bat for him. She fairly pointed out that the last Labour regime set up the original tender rules…
SKILLED BRITISH MANUFACTURING JOBS ARE BEING LOST…
Villiers’… most infuriating claim was: 'I NEED TO ABIDE BY OUR OBLIGATIONS UNDER THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES ACT 1972 AND THE TREATY OF ROME; I AM AFRAID I HAVE NO CHOICE.'
SO BRUSSELS HAS AGAIN HELPED DELIVER A BODY-BLOW TO BRITISH INDUSTRY!
AND NOR DOES DAVID CAMERON WANT TO KNOW – HE REFUSED TO MEET LOCAL COUNCILLORS.
Four months ago the Prime Minister was much keener to talk about Derby. He even held a Cabinet meeting there and said:
'The point of the Cabinet today is to ask one fundamental question: WHAT CAN WE DO TO HELP THE ECONOMY TO REBALANCE AND FOR BUSINESSES TO START UP, TO INVEST AND EMPLOY PEOPLE?' Chancellor George Osborne added:
'DERBY IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF WHAT BRITAIN’S ECONOMY SHOULD BE IN THE FUTURE AND A STRONG ENDORSEMENT OF THE IMPORTANCE OF MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY’.”
Do our politicans lie or what?
Hands up if you think they have our best interests at heart? Or our worst?
Why do you keep voting for this anti-British slime? All three mainstream parties are in the pockets of the global elite. They bark obediently to THEIR tune. They promise us everything on camera but give us sweet FA when and where it matters.
It’s your fault, ladies and gentlemen. If you keep on voting for sh*t you are never going to get sugar.
And, what’s more important, nor are your children and grandchildren.
On 16 July 2011, The Daily Mail blew the whistle on Lyn Brown.
Having barged into the back of Talksport political editor, Sean Dilley, the burly Labour whip bellowed thus:
“FOR F***'S SAKE, MOVE OUT OF MY F****** WAY!”
At which point, the journalist asked her to be more careful. The MP for West Ham replied:
“YOU ARE SUCH A RUDE F****** MAN, YOU JUST WALKED RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME.”
“I'm blind, you stupid woman.” He asked for the name of the person who had treated him with such brusque ill-humour, as he could not see her. Ms Brown responded:
“I AM NOT GIVING IT TO YOU, F*** OFF.”
That’s New Labour for you.
That’s what the sheeple vote for.
On 15 July 2011, The Daily Mail quoted Rebekah Brooks thus:
“I feel a deep sense of responsibility for the people we have hurt. I now need to concentrate on correcting the distortions and rebutting the allegations about my record as a journalist.”
Good luck with that, Rebekah.
15 July 2011, resignation letters of Les Hinton, CEO of News International:
I have watched with sorrow from New York as the News of the World story has unfolded. I have seen hundreds of news reports of both actual and alleged misconduct during the time I was executive chairman of News International and responsible for the company... That I WAS IGNORANT OF WHAT APPARENTLY HAPPENED is irrelevant and in the circumstances I feel it is proper for me to resign from News Corp, and apologize to those hurt by the actions of the News of the World.
When I left News International in December 2007, I BELIEVED THAT THE ROTTEN ELEMENT AT THE NEWS OF THE WORLD HAD BEEN ELIMINATED; THAT IMPORTANT LESSONS HAD BEEN LEARNED; AND THAT JOURNALISTIC INTEGRITY WAS RESTORED.
My testimonies before the Culture Media and Sport Select Committee were given honestly. When I appeared before the Committee in March 2007, I EXPRESSED THE BELIEF THAT CLIVE GOODMAN HAD ACTED ALONE, but made clear our investigation was continuing.
In September 2009, I TOLD THE COMMITTEE THERE HAD NEVER BEEN ANY EVIDENCE DELIVERED TO ME THAT SUGGESTED THE CONDUCT HAD SPREAD BEYOND ONE JOURNALIST. If others had evidence that wrongdoing went further, I was not told about it.
Finally, I want to express my gratitude to you for a wonderful working life. MY ADMIRATION AND RESPECT FOR YOU ARE UNBOUNDED…
On 15 July 2011, The Daily Mail quoted the MI6 officer, ‘SIS2,’ thus:
“We did have regular links with Alastair Campbell… WE FOUND [HIM], I THINK, AN ENTHUSIASTIC INDIVIDUAL, BUT ALSO SOMEWHAT OF AN UNGUIDED MISSILE. FROM THE OUTSET WE HAD CONCERNS. HE ALSO, I THINK, SUFFERED FROM HIS PROPENSITY TO HAVE RUSHES OF BLOOD TO THE HEAD and pass various stories and information to journalists without appropriate prior consultation.”
On 15 July 2011, The Daily Mail quoted Roger Daltrey, front man of The Who, a lifelong Labour voter, thus:
“I find it very interesting that people who spout socialism don’t want to pay for a socialist state… I WAS APPALLED AT WHAT LABOUR DID TO THE WORKING CLASS, mass immigration, where people were allowed to come here and undercut our working class…
It’s fine to say everybody can come into your country, but everybody should work towards a standard of living expected by people who live here. Not come here, live 20 to a room, pay no tax, send money home and undercut every builder in London. THEY SLAUGHTERED THE WORKING CLASS IN THIS COUNTRY. I HATE THEM FOR IT BECAUSE IT IS ALWAYS THE LITTLE MAN WHO IS HURT BADLY. IT’S TERRIBLE…
WE HAVE GOT TO STOP PANDERING TO PEOPLE because we won’t be able to afford to keep this going. At the very least, it should be a pre-requisite that people have to learn English…
YOU HAVE TO MAKE ALLOWANCES FOR THE STRAIN THAT IS GOING TO PUT ON YOUR SOCIAL SERVICES AND THEY MADE NONE. Talk about sticking their head up their a***. The arrogance, the audacity. They don’t realise how hard the average man has to work to get that and to pay those taxes…
I don’t see anybody with a pair of balls out of the whole bunch. They are so spineless.”
'I was appalled at what Labour did to the working class' says Roger.
Me too, Rog. THEY betrayed us. They betrayed us DELIBERATELY! With malice aforethought. Snigg*ring behand their hands as they did so.
Keep speaking out, Rog. The drugged up relics of the hope-I-die-before-I-get-old generation might pay attention to what you have to say. Oh yes, where they would automatically call us [I]'Nazi,' 'Fascist,' 'bigot,' 'racist,' [/I]they might just listen to you.
The sheeple pay attention to their icons, Rog.
Plenty are speaking out now, it's not just you, it's not just us. Telling it how it is is almost fashionable these days. Putting the boot into Camerons and Cleggs and Blairs and Browns and Murdochs is truly current coin.
So you don't have to worry that THEY will send the boys round to take what you have off you any more. THEY are on the back foot now and we, though many are still not aware of it, are gaining ground hand over fist.
Keep on speaking out, Rog. You do that and sometime soon those who [I]"slaughtered"[/I] us, those we [I]"hate"[/I] so profoundly will be made to answer for their crimes.
On 14 July 2011, Lord Myners, the former treasury minister. Said this in the House of Lords:
“All directors of BSkyB should stand for re-election at the AGM this summer, INCLUDING MR JAMES MURDOCH. THE BOARD SHOULD SEEK TO PERSUADE MR MURDOCH THAT IT IS NO LONGER APPROPRIATE FOR HIM TO CHAIR THIS COMPANY. THERE ARE SUFFICIENT DOUBTS ABOUT HIS BUSINESS JUDGMENT…
There is an opportunity here for the great investment institutions of Edinburgh, London and New York to show that THEY HAVE HAD ENOUGH WITH THE WAY THAT THE MURDOCHS DOMINATE BSKYB AND THEY SHOULD ENSURE THAT THE COMPANY HAS AN INDEPENDENT BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND A TRULY INDEPENDENT CHAIRMAN.”
On 14 July 2011, John T. Bennett’s essay, The Knockout Game: Racial Violence and the Conspicuous Silence of the Media, was seen in The American Thinker.
This, in part, is it:
“Most Americans have heard of recent violent 'flash mobs,' which are THE BANDS OF BLACK TEENS THAT ATTACK MOSTLY WHITE VICTIMS AND WHITE BUSINESSES, as even the New York Times once noted. But the flash mobs, which are more accurately called 'race riots' or 'racial mob violence,' are not the only interesting topic to cover in our national conversation about race. There is also the 'knockout game,' which is stunning in its brutal simplicity and stark racial significance.
The knockout game involves 'unprovoked attacks on innocent bystanders,' according to police who have had to deal with it. A retired officer explained, 'NORMALLY IT WAS A GROUP OF BLACK MALES, ONE OF WHICH WOULD STRIKE HIM AS HARD AS HE COULD IN THE FACE, attempting to knock him out with one punch,' says retired Sgt. Don Pizzo. The victims are typically not robbed, but simply punched with no provocation. Such attacks have been reported in Illinois, Massachusetts, Missouri, and New Jersey.
The knockout game has claimed at least one life so far. In St. Louis this year, 72-year old Hoang Nguyen was walking with his wife, Yen, when four 'young people' attacked. The attacker pushed the old man's face to the side to make a 'clear target for his fist,' recalled his wife. Nguyen was punched so hard that he fell to the ground and struck his head. Then the attacker turned on Nguyen's 59-year-old wife, punching her so hard that she suffered a broken eye socket. She could only watch as her husband was then kicked repeatedly… A young black male, 18-year-old Elex Murphy, is charged with first-degree murder.
In addition, a mob of young black males can be seen playing the game here. The video shows the group attacking a young white man named Adam Taylor, who was left with internal bleeding, bruising of the brain, severe whiplash, and scratches on his face when he was beaten in Columbia, MO in 2009.
Sgt. Pizzo noted that the attacks fit a pattern: 'BLACK ATTACKERS ON A WHITE VICTIM AND THE VICTIM WAS OFTEN AN OLDER PERSON WALKING ALONE.' In a thorough and sensible piece on the subject in a local arts and entertainment magazine, EIGHT OF THE VICTIMS INTERVIEWED WERE WHITE, ONE WAS BLACK, AND ONE WAS LATINO. ALL OF THE ATTACKERS, OR 'PLAYERS,' WERE BLACK…
As one player of the game says, 'we used to walk to where a lot of people be at and hit 'em. If one of the homeboys didn't knock him out, then the other would come. WHOEVER KNOCK HIM OUT WOULD BE KING.'
Local media outlets have failed to report on the racial aspect of the attacks. At best, the media will allow the race of attackers to be revealed by mugshots, or quotations from police or victims. This follows A CONSCIOUS POLICY OF SELF-CENSORSHIP THAT HAS BEEN OPENLY ADMITTED BY MAJOR NEWSPAPERS.
A New York Times editor says that his paper will report on race 'only if it's relevant to the story' or if readers would 'learn something' from the description. The Chicago Tribune's editor, Gerould Kern, explains his paper's 'approach' to concealing the truth: 'We do not reference race unless it is a fact that is central to telling the story.' Of course, NO GUILT-RIDDEN WHITE LIBERAL EDITOR WILL EVER ADMIT THAT RACE IS RELEVANT, UNLESS OF COURSE A WHITE IS ATTACKING MINORITIES.
The Los Angeles Times explains that THE MEDIA WILL NOT REPORT RACE BECAUSE THEY DON'T WANT TO 'UNFAIRLY STIGMATIZE RACIAL GROUPS.' The Washington Post ombudsman openly admits that the Times's staff 'worried about hyping a story that involved race' when blacks brawled on the Metro… The liberal media prefers to condemn minorities via low expectations and preferential, secretive reporting, which only creates a cloud of ominous suspicion over the race issue. But at least racial groups aren't being stigmatized.
A senior reporter from the Houston Chronicle admits, 'WE DON'T EVER INCLUDE RACE NORMALLY, unless race is made an issue by other people.' In other words, IF RACIAL INTEREST GROUPS MAKE SOMETHING OF THE ISSUE, RACE WILL BECOME PART OF THE STORY. And we all know which racial groups advocate on their own behalf, and which one doesn't.
The liberal media policy of resolute silence about race and crime may strike a reasonable observer as troubling, given the violence and obvious racial aspect of the knockout game and flash mob attacks. THE NET EFFECT OF THIS ORWELLIAN REPORTING IS TO PLACE MINORITY FEELINGS ABOVE THE PUBLIC INTEREST IN SAFETY...
When the liberal media does touch on the topic of race and flash mobs, it is only to condemn conservative blogs for mentioning race at all… The progressive tendency will be to define these stories as isolated incidents…
But the knockout game must be seen in the context of black-on-white violence in America. The big picture is that black-on-white violence is a social problem that deserves more attention, regardless of whether the overall crime rate is rising or falling. Department of Justice statistics show that 33% OF WHITE MURDER VICTIMS ARE KILLED BY A NON-WHITE, WHILE ONLY 8% OF BLACK MURDER VICTIMS ARE KILLED BY A NON-BLACK. Even greater disparities exist in violent crime and robbery…
Hoang Nguyen will not receive the same attention as Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. After all, Hoang was not the victim of white hatred, so he is not a household name... but he should be.”
On 13 July 2011, the European Commissioner for Home Affairs, Cecilia Malmström, announced that European Commission experts would be paying a visit to Denmark on the following two days.
This in order to ensure that Denmark was behaving itself in respect of its border controls. Malmström said:
"The Commission has been in close contact with the Danish authorities during the past weeks TO ENSURE THAT ITS PLANS WOULD NOT ENDANGER FREE MOVEMENT and would fully respect EU legislation. I welcome the Danish authorities’ clear commitment to act in line with EU rules, including the Schengen agreement…
The Commission is currently assessing all the information submitted by Denmark concerning their plans to reinforce customs controls at the borders. The final decision on whether the Danish rules are in line with EU law on free movement of goods, services AND PERSONS will also depend on how they are put in practice. This is why, in agreement with the Danish authorities, THE COMMISSION IS SENDING EXPERTS TO DENMARK TOMORROW TO ASSESS HOW THE MEASURES HAVE BEEN IMPLEMENTED. THE FULL RESPECT OF EU RULES – GIVING EU CITIZENS AND BUSINESSES THE RIGHT TO MOVE FREELY – WILL BE ENSURED."
On 13 August 2011, Christopher Booker said this in his Telegraph article,
“THE ENGLISH SEEM TO HAVE LOST ALL THEIR OLD MANLINESS AND SELF-RELIANCE, ALLOWING THEMSELVES TO BE RULED BY AN ALL-PERVADING POLITICALLY CORRECT STATE… OUR POLITICIANS… CALLED FOR EVER MORE POWERS FOR A POLICE FORCE WHICH HAD SO SIGNALLY FAILED TO PROTECT THE PEOPLE OF LONDON, MANCHESTER AND ELSEWHERE FROM ANARCHY. When Boris Johnson stumbled through embarrassing platitudes to a crowd who had seen their businesses destroyed the night before, he exemplified a political class that has lost any ability to engage in human terms with the people it is meant to serve...
A similar gulf has opened up between the police and the rest of us. It has become a cliche of modern Britain that, WHEN WE FACE A GENUINE AFFRONT TO LAW AND ORDER, SUCH AS HAVING OUR HOUSE BURGLED, THE POLICE SEEM POWERLESS OR ARE NOWHERE TO BE SEEN. YET WHEN IT COMES TO HELPING SOCIAL WORKERS TAKE A NEW-BORN BABY FROM THE ARMS OF ITS MOTHER ON A HOSPITAL BED, IT SEEMS THEY HAVE THE TIME AND RESOURCES TO ARRIVE MOB-HANDED.
THE POLICE ARE HAPPY TO HIT PEACEFUL, PRO-HUNTING DEMONSTRATORS OF THE COUNTRYSIDE ALLIANCE OVER THE HEAD WITH RIOT STICKS. YET WHEN LOOTERS RAGE FOR AN HOUR AND A HALF THROUGH CLAPHAM, OUR CONSTABULARY SIMPLY LOOK ON.
The police, withdrawn from their proper involvement with the community, shut away behind the walls of their concrete bunkers and the electronic barriers of recorded-voice telephone systems, reflect the stance of the politicians and officials who rule over us. It was apt that last week, as havoc engulfed our cities, The Daily Telegraph reported that 20,000 public officials who last year lost their jobs in 'cuts' received a total of £1 billion in compensation. One of the foremost was a senior official of the National Policing Improvement Agency, intended 'to boost police efficiency', whose pay-off was £500,000.
On one hand, we are told that we TAXPAYERS MUST PAY £200 MILLION TO PROVIDE COMPENSATION FOR THE DAMAGE CAUSED BY THE RIOTING HOOLIGANS. On the other, TO COMPENSATE THOSE 20,000 OFFICIALS WHO HAVE LOST THEIR JOBS, WE MUST FOOT A BILL FOR FIVE TIMES THAT SUM…
It is an ancient truth of human affairs that, if power is not exercised properly and responsibly, it doesn’t just vanish. It re-emerges in what the psychologists call 'INFERIOR' FORMS, TO BE ABUSED, IN WAYS WHICH ARE ANTI-SOCIAL. The power now enjoyed by our political class and the system they represent does not ultimately belong to them. It belongs to the British people. ONLY BY COLLECTIVELY RECOVERING SOME… MANLY INDEPENDENCE OF SPIRIT… CAN WE HOPE EVER TO GET IT BACK.”
On 11 July 2011, Robert Fisk said this in The Independent:
“Murdoch was owner of The Times when I covered the blood-soaked Israeli invasion and occupation of Lebanon in 1982. Not a line was removed from my reports, however critical they were of Israel. After the invasion, Douglas-Home and Murdoch were invited by the Israelis to take a military helicopter trip into Lebanon. THE ISRAELIS TRIED TO RUBBISH MY REPORTING; Douglas-Home said he stood up for me. On the flight back to London, Douglas-Home and Murdoch sat together. ‘I knew Rupert was interested in what I was writing,’ he told me later. ‘He sort of waited for me to tell him what it was, although he didn't demand it. I didn't show it to him.’
BUT THINGS CHANGED. Before he was editor, Douglas-Home would write for the Arabic-language Al-Majella magazine, often deeply critical of Israel. Now his Times editorials took an optimistic view of the Israeli invasion. He stated that ‘there is now no worthy Palestinian to whom the world can talk’ and – for heaven's sake – that ‘perhaps at last the Palestinians on the West Bank and in the Gaza Strip will stop hoping that stage-strutters like Mr Arafat can rescue them miraculously from doing business with the Israelis."‘
ALL OF WHICH, OF COURSE, WAS OFFICIAL ISRAELI GOVERNMENT POLICY AT THE TIME.
Then, in the spring of 1983, another change. I had, with Douglas-Home's full agreement, spent months investigating the death of seven Palestinian and Lebanese prisoners of the Israelis in Sidon. It was obvious, I concluded, that THE MEN HAD BEEN MURDERED, the grave-digger even told me that their corpses had been brought to him, hands tied behind their backs, showing marks of bruising. But now Douglas-Home couldn't see how we would be ‘justified’ in running a report ‘so long after the event.’
In other words, THE VERY SYSTEM OF INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM, OF FACT-CHECKING AND MONTHS OF INTERVIEWS, BECAME SELF-DEFEATING. When we got the facts, too much time had passed to print them. I asked the Israelis if they would carry out a military inquiry and, anxious to show how humanitarian they were, they duly told us there would be an official investigation. The Israeli ‘inquiry’ was, I suspected, a fiction. But it was enough to "justify" publishing my long and detailed report. Once the Israelis could look like good guys, Douglas-Home's concerns evaporated.
When he died, of cancer, it was announced that his deputy, Charles Wilson, would edit the paper. Murdoch said that Wilson was ‘Charlie's choice’… Murdoch had signed up to all manner of guarantees of editorial independence, oversight and promises of goodwill when he bought The Times – AND HAD THEN FIRED HIS FIRST EDITOR, HAROLD EVANS…
In west Beirut, where dozens of Westerners were being kidnapped, I opened The Times to discover that A PRO-ISRAELI WRITER WAS CLAIMING ON OUR CENTRE PAGE THAT ALL JOURNALISTS IN WEST BEIRUT, CLEARLY INTIMIDATED BY ‘TERRORISM,’ COULD BE REGARDED ONLY AS ‘BLOODSUCKERS.’ Was the paper claiming that I, too, was a bloodsucker? In all this time, MURDOCH HAD EXPRESSED EXCLUSIVELY PRO-ISRAELI VIEWS, AND HAD ACCEPTED A ‘MAN OF THE YEAR’ AWARD FROM A PROMINENT JEWISH-AMERICAN ORGANISATION. THE TIMES EDITORIALS BECAME MORE AND MORE PRO-ISRAELI, THEIR USE OF THE WORD ‘TERRORIST’ EVER MORE PROMISCUOUS.
The end came for me when I flew to Dubai in 1988 after THE USS VINCENNES HAD SHOT DOWN AN IRANIAN PASSENGER AIRLINER OVER THE GULF. Within 24 hours, I had spoken to the British air traffic controllers at Dubai, discovered that US SHIPS HAD ROUTINELY BEEN THREATENING BRITISH AIRWAYS AIRLINERS, and that the crew of the Vincennes appeared to have panicked. The foreign desk told me the report was up for the page-one splash. I warned them that American ‘leaks’ that the IranAir pilot was trying to suicide-crash his aircraft on to the Vincennes were rubbish. They agreed.
Next day, MY REPORT APPEARED WITH ALL CRITICISM OF THE AMERICANS DELETED, with all my sources ignored. The Times even carried an editorial suggesting the pilot was indeed a suicider. A subsequent US official report and accounts by US naval officers subsequently proved my dispatch correct. Except that Times readers were not allowed to see it. This was when I first made contact with The Independent. I DIDN'T BELIEVE IN THE TIMES ANY MORE, CERTAINLY NOT IN RUPERT MURDOCH.
Months later, a senior night editor who had been on duty on the night my Vincennes report arrived, recalled in a letter that he had promoted my dispatch as the splash, but that Wilson had said:
‘There's nothing in it. There's not a fact in it. I wouldn't even run this gibberish.’ Wilson, the night editor said, called it ‘bollocks’ and ‘waffle.’ The night editor's diary for that day finished: ‘Shambles, chaos on Gulf story. Brock rewrites Fisk’…
I don't believe Murdoch personally interfered in any of the above events. He didn't need to. HE HAD TURNED THE TIMES INTO A TAME, PRO-TORY, PRO-ISRAELI PAPER SHORN OF ALL EDITORIAL INDEPENDENCE…
Almost every Arab journalist knows the importance of self-censorship, or direct censorship, and where kings and dictators do not need to give orders. They have satraps AND MINISTERS AND SENIOR POLICE OFFICERS, AND ‘DEMOCRATIC’ GOVERNMENTS, who know their wishes, their likes and dislikes. AND THEY DO WHAT THEY BELIEVE THEIR MASTER WANTS…
MURDOCH COULD NEVER BE BLAMED. Murdoch was more caliph than ever, no more responsible for an editorial or a ‘news’ story than a president of Syria is for a massacre…
IN THE STERILE WORLD OF THE MURDOCHS, NEW TECHNOLOGY WAS USED TO DEPRIVE THE PEOPLE OF THEIR FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND PRIVACY.”
On 11 August 2011 Frank Miniter's article, ENGLAND USED TO BE A COUNTRY OF MEN, appeared in The National Review.
This, in part, is it:
"Something has changed in the English character. With London succumbing to looters and muggers, it’s time to ask WHAT HAPPENED TO THE ONCE-MANLY ENGLISH PEOPLE. The August 9 issue of the Daily Mail, for example, includes a photo of a young man taking off his pants on the street as an impatient looter waits with the emasculated Briton’s sneakers and shirt already in his hands. Luckily the feeble Englishman chooses boxers over briefs, but I CAN’T HELP WONDERING IF MEN SUCH AS T. E. LAWRENCE, WINSTON CHURCHILL, OR LORD ACTON COULD HAVE STOMACHED THE STATE OF MANLINESS IN THIS GENERATION OF ENGLISHMEN.
Consider that this latest explosion of looting, robbing, and burning began in Tottenham, a dicey corner of north London, after police shot and killed a 29-year-old Tottenham resident named Mark Duggan. As typically happens, two competing personality profiles of Duggan are being told, depending on the politics of the teller; some say Duggan was a hardened drug dealer, others say he was a beloved family man…
The facts of this incident may be in dispute, but the unmanly actions of Tottenham’s gangster youth are not… THEY’VE BURNED AUTOS, LOOTED STORES, AND MUGGED PEOPLE ALONG TOTTENHAM’S HIGH ROAD AND AROUND PARTS OF LONDON. THIS REACTION SAYS SOMETHING HORRIFIC ABOUT THE CULTURE IN THESE NEIGHBORHOODS, just as much as the 1992 Los Angeles Riots displayed that all wasn’t right with the culture in the poorer neighborhoods of Los Angeles…
SOMETHING HAS CHANGED IN THE ENGLISH CHARACTER. THESE AREN’T THE PROUD MEN WHO ONCE MADE THE WHOLE WORLD LOOK THEM IN THE EYES…
England’s law-abiding citizens have become defenseless both physically and psychologically. The loss of their right to self-preservation has created a culture of dependency on government (for protection and so much more) that has helped NEUTER THE ENGLISH MALE…
England attained the highest burglary rate and one of the highest rates for violent crimes of the industrialized nations, according to the International Crime Victims Survey carried out by the Dutch Ministry of Justice in 2000. As the Guardian put it on Feb. 23, 2001, the study 'shows ENGLAND AND WALES AS THE TOP OF THE WORLD LEAGUE WITH AUSTRALIA AS THE COUNTRIES WHERE YOU ARE MOST LIKELY TO BECOME A VICTIM OF CRIME.' More recently, on July 3, 2009, England’s newspaper the Daily Mail reported that 'BRITAIN’S VIOLENT CRIME RECORD IS WORSE THAN ANY OTHER COUNTRY IN THE EUROPEAN UNION, it has been revealed. Official crime figures show THE U.K. ALSO HAS A WORSE RATE FOR ALL TYPES OF VIOLENCE THAN THE U.S. AND EVEN SOUTH AFRICA…
As the English hand their government more of their individual liberty — and thereby their self-reliant manliness — THEIR GOVERNMENT BECOMES MORE AUTHORITARIAN. Individuals have diminished means for protecting themselves and their property, which should have made London’s looting, vandalism, and other crimes very predictable…
The ENGLISH PEOPLE WILL CONTINUE TO HAND OVER THEIR LIBERTY IN THE HOPES THAT ONE DAY — DESPITE ALL THE LESSONS FROM HISTORY AND HUMAN NATURE — THEIR GOVERNMENT WILL CREATE THE PEACEFUL, SOCIALIST UTOPIA THEY’VE LONG BEEN PROMISED.”
'England used to be a country of men', says Frank Miniter.
That was before the PC Crowd, the Globalists, the International Financiers and their bought politicians got stuck in. Now we have the young, “emasculated Briton” stripping in the street before a pet footsoldier of the aforementioned New World Order folk.
This isn’t what “the proud men who once made the whole world look them in the eyes” voted for, Frank. But it IS what the “law-abiding citizens” who “have become defenseless both physically and psychologically” at the command of their “authoritarian” government voted for. Again and again and again they do so. No matter how bad it gets; no matter what their “authoritarian” masters do to them.
We in the Nationalist fraternity have words for such folk, Frank. We call them sheeple. Sometimes we call them lemmings.
I hope there is a life after death. I want to be there when our ancestors spit on their botwag descendants and T. E. Lawrence, Winston Churchill and Lord Acton toss the craven buttercups who gave away everything the “once-manly English people” fought and died for into the flames.
On 10 July 2011, Simon Walters told us this in The Telegraph:
“Tony Blair won much praise when he announced with great fanfare last August that he was donating his huge earnings from his memoirs to the Royal British Legion. Curiously, the Armed Forces charity seems reluctant to trumpet his generosity. Mandrake can report that THE LEGION’S LATEST ACCOUNTS, WHICH COVER THE 12 MONTHS TO THE END OF SEPTEMBER 2010, MAKE NO MENTION OF ITS HAVING RECEIVED ANY MONEY FROM THE FORMER PRIME MINISTER.”
On 10 July 2011, Simon Walters told us this in The Daily Mail:
“TONY BLAIR URGED GORDON BROWN TO PERSUADE THE LABOUR MP WHO LED THE CAMPAIGN TO EXPOSE NEWS OF THE WORLD PHONE-HACKING TO BACK OFF, friends of Mr Brown said last night. Well-placed sources said Mr BLAIR, WHO HAS CLOSE LINKS WITH THE PAPER’S OWNER RUPERT MURDOCH, WANTED MR BROWN TO GET HIS ALLY TOM WATSON TO LAY OFF THE NEWS INTERNATIONAL title, but Mr Brown refused. Mr Watson’s two-year crusade played a major part in Mr Murdoch’s shock decision to close the paper after today’s edition…
The assertion that Mr Blair tried to help Mr Murdoch came amid claims that Mr WATSON WAS TOLD MRS BROOKS ‘WILL PURSUE YOU FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE’ over his stance. Mrs BROOKS BEGGED BLAIRITE EX-CABINET MINISTER TESSA JOWELL TO HELP ‘STOP THIS MADMAN TOM WATSON’ – AND ALSO SOUGHT HELP FROM HER FRIEND, MR BLAIR.
Labour MP Chris Bryant, a phone-hack victim, branded NI ‘gangsters’. A NI executive threatened to take revenge on Ed Miliband for saying Mrs Brooks should quit.”
On 9 July 2011, Tony Blair was quoted thus by The Daily Mail:
"I remain unremittingly an advocate of third way, centre ground, progressive politics that came to be called NEW LABOUR. FROM 1997 WE WERE NEW LABOUR. In June 2007, frankly we stopped. We didn’t become Old Labour exactly but WE LOST THE DRIVING RHYTHM THAT MADE US DIFFERENT AND SUCCESSFUL. It was not a government of continuity, I’m afraid, from 1997 to 2010 pursuing the same politics. It was ten plus three...
Job creation is a progressive project and you don’t create jobs by attacking the businesses that create them... If you are fighting an election, as we were on the basis ‘WE ARE THE PEOPLE BEST ABLE TO MANAGE THE ECONOMY AND LOOK AFTER IT'... It’s really hard to do that unless you have a section of business that’s prepared to come out and support you...
Progressives win when they have the courage to be THE CHANGE-MAKERS."
The Mail added:
"Mr BLAIR ALSO REITERATED HIS SUPPORT FOR THE UK’S MEMBERSHIP OF THE EURO, DESPITE THE ECONOMIC CRISIS GRIPPING THE SINGLE CURRENCY ZONE.”
On 9 July 2011, Stephen Glover said this in The Daily Mail:
“David Cameron was visibly uncomfortable during his press conference yesterday. He knew that the News of the World scandal has put him in a deep political hole...
What went badly wrong concerned the failings of one Sunday red-top newspaper, and the relations between leading politicians and one newspaper group. THERE IS NOTHING IN THE BRITISH CONSTITUTION THAT REQUIRED MR CAMERON TO ABASE HIMSELF IN FRONT OF THE MEDIA MOGUL, RUPERT MURDOCH, owner of the News of the World. It was his choice – just as IT WAS HIS CHOICE TO APPOINT ANDY COULSON, WHO HAD PRESIDED OVER A PHONE HACKING REGIME WHILE THE PAPER’S EDITOR, AS HIS MEDIA ADVISER.
THE PRIME MINISTER IGNORED MUCH FRIENDLY AND WELL-INFORMED ADVICE NOT TO APPOINT MR COULSON IN 2007. He seems also to have disregarded a tip-off from the editor of the Guardian before the last election that Mr Coulson had connections with a private investigator called Jonathan Rees, who had been in prison for seven years. Mr CAMERON WANTED MR COULSON AT HIS SIDE... BECAUSE IT GAVE HIM AN ENTRÉE INTO NEWS INTERNATIONAL AND ITS ULTIMATE BOSS, RUPERT MURDOCH, WHOSE SUPPORT HE CRAVED...
IN THE SUMMER OF 2008 MR CAMERON HITCHED A FREE LIFT ON THE AIRCRAFT OF MR MURDOCH’S SON-IN-LAW, THE PR MAN MATTHEW FREUD, SO THAT HE COULD MEET THE MEDIA MOGUL ON HIS YACHT IN THE MEDITERRANEAN. THIS RECALLED THE FLIGHT MADE BY TONY BLAIR TO AUSTRALIA IN 1995 SOON AFTER BECOMING LEADER OF THE LABOUR PARTY, WHEN HE ADDRESSED MURDOCH EXECUTIVES IN A SIMILAR ATTEMPT TO INGRATIATE HIMSELF.
Mr Cameron’s assiduous courting of the press tycoon was entirely his own choice, and went beyond what many thought wise or necessary. It was imprudent for him to get so close to Mr Freud, a near neighbour in Oxfordshire, and more imprudent still for him to befriend Rebekah Brooks, another close neighbour, and the chief executive of News International as well as a former editor of the News of the World.
AS RECENTLY AS LAST CHRISTMAS, MR CAMERON AND HIS WIFE SAMANTHA DINED WITH MRS BROOKS AND HER HUSBAND AT THEIR HOME IN OXFORDSHIRE. THIS WAS AN AMAZING THING TO HAVE DONE AT A TIME WHEN THE PHONE HACKING SCANDAL WAS ALREADY A PRESSING ISSUE, and it is impossible not to doubt his judgment. But let’s not heap all the blame on the Prime Minister. THE LEADER OF THE OPPOSITION, ED MILIBAND – A MAN NO LESS VOCAL THAN MR CAMERON IN HIS UNCTUOUS DENUNCIATIONS OF THE PRESS – ALSO HAS MUCH EXPLAINING TO DO. I don’t particularly criticise him for attending Mr Murdoch’s recent summer party, but there are unanswered questions about HIS RECRUITMENT OF TOM BALDWIN, A FORMER TIMES JOURNALIST AND MURDOCH LOYALIST, AS HIS SPIN DOCTOR. There are allegations about some of Mr Baldwin’s journalistic techniques that bear further investigation. More pertinent still is the record of Mr Miliband’s predecessor but one, TONY BLAIR, WHOSE SYCOPHANTIC COURTING OF THE MURDOCH EMPIRE WAS ONE OF THE MOST SICKENING ASPECTS OF HIS YEARS IN NO 10. I SUGGEST THAT WITHOUT THE BLIND SUPPORT OF THE MURDOCH PRESS, MR BLAIR WOULD HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO PURSUE WHAT WAS PROBABLY AN ILLEGAL WAR IN IRAQ.
THE MURDOCH NEWSPAPERS… DOWNPLAYED OR IGNORED INCONVENIENT EVIDENCE ABOUT THE WAR’S ILLEGALITY. SIGNIFICANTLY, IN THE TEN DAYS BEFORE THE INVASION, MR BLAIR AND MR MURDOCH SPOKE ON THE TELEPHONE THREE TIMES…
Mr Cameron has announced the establishment of a tribunal into the ethics of the press. Perhaps WE SHOULD HAVE ANOTHER TRIBUNAL INVESTIGATING POLITICIANS WHO HAVE SUCKED UP TO MR MURDOCH OVER THE YEARS.”
On 8 July 2011, Jonathan Walker said this in The Birmingham Post:
"Nobody has done more to bring the truth about phone hacking at the News of the World into the open than West Midlands MP Tom Watson. His battle against media mogul Rupert Murdoch's empire began in 2006, when HE HELPED TO FORCE TONY BLAIR OUT OF OFFICE... Working with Labour colleagues… he succeeded in forcing Mr Blair to promise to quit within 12 months. But Mr WATSON HAD CREATED A POWERFUL ENEMY. Rebekah Brooks, the Chief Executive of News International, was editor of The Sun at the time AND SHE WAS A SUPPORTER OF TONY BLAIR.
In a speech to the annual conference of the GMB last month, Mr Watson explained what happened next.
‘I was told then that Rebekah Brooks, then the editor of the Sun, now the Chief Executive of News International, would never forgive me for what I did to HER TONY. They said she would pursue me for the rest of my life. SHE DID, THEY HAVE… When you're faced with that daily fear, you really only have two choices. Give in and get out, or give as good as you get.’
Mr Watson found himself targeted, with strangers going through his bins and harassing his family.
‘When the neighbours complained that this time their bins had also been gone through, my family was at breaking point. And WHEN OUR THREE-YEAR-OLD HID BEHIND THE SOFA BECAUSE THERE WAS ANOTHER NASTY MAN AT THE DOOR, I SNAPPED.’
By this time, he had rejoined the Government as a Minister under the new Prime Minister, Gordon Brown. But he quit his post - and decided to fight back against the Murdoch empire.
‘I stood up in Parliament and for the first time I told the truth that dare not speak its name - that we were scared. that THE WHOLE OF BRITISH POLITICS HAD BEEN TERRIFIED INTO SILENCE. BECOME COMPLICIT IN A COVER UP OF THE ILLEGAL METHODS OF A CORPORATE BEAST THAT WAS OUT OF CONTROL’
Mr Watson joined the Commons Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee, where he was able to quiz executives from News International - the business behind the Sun and the News of the World - as well as Andy Coulson, the former News of the World editor who at that time was Director of Communications for the Conservative Party.”
On 8 July 2011, Charles Moore said this in The Telegraph:
“Until this week, it seemed that the rule of Rupert Murdoch would end only with his death. But today, I think, the end is in sight… His power will never recover…
The first time I met him, about 25 years ago, he explained British working-class aspiration. As the Second World War receded in the memory, he said, people got fed up with being preached at and told how to behave by their “betters”. They did not want to be directed by the state. They wanted to have more fun and make their own choices. Why shouldn’t they have foreign holidays and televisions and the chance to own their own homes? His dislike of the monarchy – of which, he recently told me, he has repented – was born of the same belief that ordinary people should not be held back by social systems. On the basis of this approach, he built a huge commercial and journalistic success.
But if the man is a genius, there is a touch of evil in that genius. THIS IS EXPRESSED IN POWER-MANIA, CYNICISM AND – THOUGH IT DOES NOT SEEM TO BE A PERSONAL CHARACTERISTIC OF HIS – CRUELTY.
If you are an imperialist, you are never ultimately interested in the welfare of each bit that you conquer. Your concern is only to conquer more and more, and you will sacrifice any part for the interest of the whole. This week, this has happened spectacularly. Mr Murdoch has closed the News of the World, the paper that got him started in Britain – a 168-year-old best-selling and profitable concern – because its continuing existence became, for wider reasons, inconvenient to him.
The cynicism is part of this. THE GOOD OF ANY COUNTRY IN WHICH MR MURDOCH OPERATES CONCERNS HIM MUCH LESS THAN THE MIGHT OF HIS EMPIRE. And although his commitment to fearless journalism is undoubted, HE IS PERFECTLY PREPARED TO SACRIFICE TRUTH-TELLING TO WHATEVER HIS COMMERCIAL INTEREST MAY BE.
In 1998, this paper got a scoop when a brave publisher, white-faced with indignation, came to see me. He was the editor of Chris Patten’s memoirs, to be published by the Murdoch-owned HarperCollins. He had just been told that HarperCollins would not publish the book after all. Mr Patten, the ex-governor of Hong Kong, was critical of China, and Mr MURDOCH DID NOT WANT TO RISK HIS GROWING CHINESE INTERESTS. The publisher resigned in protest.
The cynicism also involves chasing readers downmarket. Think how excellent it would have been if Mr Murdoch’s correct theory about rising popular expectations had also led his tabloid papers to give their readers helpful advice and information about saving, pensions, medical care, marriage, education and bringing up children. Instead, THOSE PAPERS HAVE CHOSEN SUBJECTS WHICH ARE DEGRADED AND, IN THE CASE OF THE NEWS OF THE WORLD, METHODS WHICH ARE CRIMINAL. Once you run papers that way, it becomes almost logical to snoop on the voicemail of a murdered teenage girl. THE POWER OF THE MURDOCH EMPIRE HAS ALSO MADE IT HARD FOR OTHER NEWSPAPERS TO TAKE A STAND AGAINST SUCH METHODS – HENCE THE WEAKNESS OF SELF-REGULATION AND THE SELF-CENSORSHIP OF JOURNALISTS WHO RECOGNISE THAT THEY MAY ONE DAY WANT TO TAKE THE MURDOCH SHILLING.
ABOVE ALL, THE CYNICISM EXTENDS TO POLITICS… When he switched the Sun from Labour to Mrs Thatcher in good time for the 1979 general election, he could plausibly argue that her beliefs and his interests coincided. Both, for instance, required reform of Britain’s appalling labour laws. But as the years passed, his main game became simply to work out who was likely to win, back him, and then threaten him if he did not grant the commercial concessions which he sought. IT WAS ON THE BASIS OF THIS DEVIL’S BARGAIN THAT TONY BLAIR AND GORDON BROWN CONSTRUCTED THE STRATEGY OF NEW LABOUR.
The most remarkable thing David Cameron did in his press conference yesterday was to be the first leader to admit that THE POLITICAL PARTIES, INCLUDING HIS OWN, ‘TURN A BLIND EYE’ TO PRESS WRONGDOING BECAUSE THEY ARE DESPERATE FOR ELECTORAL ENDORSEMENT. By saying what he did, he has broken the spell.
It remains possible, of course, that the Murdoch organisation or individual Murdoch employees will do Mr Cameron terrible damage. No doubt Rebekah Brooks could tell some bad tales if she chose to.”
On 8 July 2011, Graeme Wilson said this in The Sun:
“Islamic terrorists convicted in Britain spend less than three-and-a-half years in prison, a shock survey revealed yesterday. A third go free after no more than 16 months — and the report warns Britain is now a 'hub for the development of terrorists.'
Seven out of ten Islamic fanatics are "home-grown" British nationals, the Henry Jackson Society found. The think-tank studied 138 Islamic terror convictions from 1999-2010. It found 54 per cent resulted in sentences of between one and nine years — and those defendants spent a maximum of three-and-a-half years in jail.
Incredibly, eight terrorists avoided prison altogether.”
On 7 July 2011, The Daily Mail quoted Mark Thompson, Director General of the BBC, thus:
“I think there were some years when THE BBC, LIKE THE REST OF THE UK MEDIA, WAS VERY RETICENT ABOUT TALKING ABOUT IMMIGRATION. There was an anxiety whether or not you might be playing into a political agenda if you did items about immigration… IN THE 2010 ELECTION CAMPAIGN, NONE OF THE PARTIES WAS TALKING ABOUT IMMIGRATION.”
The BNP was talking about it, so was the National Front.
So was the British People’s Party and the England First Party. In fact, the whole of Nationalism was talking about it. Just as it has been since 1948 when the Windrush arrived.
I stood as an Independent in the 2010 election campaign. I was talking about it too.
On 6 July 2011, Lord Chris Patten said gave his maiden speech as the Chairman of the Royal Television Society's Fleming Memorial Lecture.
After telling his audience that it would be an 'act of treason' if the BBC reduced quality to chase ratings,’ he said this:
“Waste, self-indulgence and inefficiency at the BBC are inexcusable... that’s why, watching from the outside, the issue of SENIOR EXECUTIVE PAY HAS LOOKED SO TOXIC for the institution as a whole.
We should also listen hard to those who accuse us of DROWNING OUR VIEWERS AND LISTENERS IN A SMALL METROPOLITAN POND OF STEREOTYPES AND PREJUDICES…
Audiences in every different part of the UK should feel the BBC is relevant to their everyday lives…
Above all, we should pay greatest heed to any justified assertion that WE ARE GUILTY OF DESCENDING TO A TASTELESS COMMON DENOMINATOR…
Criticism that WE ARE NOT IMPARTIAL should keep us on our toes, determined to tell things as we see them while taking account of the full breadth of opinion that exists on most controversial topics.”
The following day The Mail commented thus:
“His comments will be seen as an attempt to address the long-standing claim that THE BBC IS GUILTY OF A LONDON-CENTRIC, LEFT-LEANING BIAS WHICH ALIENATES LARGE SECTIONS OF THE PUBLIC.”
On 6 July 20011, The Daily Mail quoted David Cameron thus:
"To people who are hard-headed about aid and possibly even hard-hearted about aid, I would say the programme we have in Afghanistan – trying to help the people and government of Afghanistan to have a stronger, more secure, more stable country – is not just good to people in Afghanistan, it's good for people back home in Britain."
Pouring money into the Swiss bank accounts of the Kabul mafia is good for the Man on the Clapham Omnibus? Yeah right. Tony Blair was know for spin. David Cameron is developing a reputation for b***ocks.
On 6 July 2006, The Daily Mail quoted the group, Muslims Against the Crusades, thus:
"Muslims should set up Islamic emirates in the UK... WE SUGGEST IT IS TIME THAT AREAS WITH LARGE MUSLIM POPULATIONS DECLARE AN EMIRATE DELINEATING THAT MUSLIMS TRYING TO LIVE WITHIN THIS AREA ARE TRYING TO LIVE BY THE SHARIA AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE WITH THEIR OWN COURTS AND COMMUNITY WATCH AND SCHOOLS AND EVEN SELF SUFFICIENT TRADE."
The Mail added:
"ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS HAVE CALLED ON BRITISH MUSLIMS TO ESTABLISH THREE INDEPENDENT STATES WITHIN THE UK. The notorious MAC group have named Yorkshire towns BRADFORD AND DEWSBURY AND TOWER HAMLETS in East London as testbeds for blanket Sharia rule.
The medieval 'emirates' would operate entirely outside British law, according to a document on the MAC website. The MAC group, led by Abu Assadullah, was set up last year and has become notorious because of its violent protests, most provocatively burning poppies during the Remembrance Day silence.”
On 6 July 2011, Steve Doughty said this in The Maily Mail:
"Britain MUST BRING BACK GRAMMAR SCHOOLS, or risk a generation that fails in life, says the biggest study yet on education. Children from working class families are failing in life because they cannot get into good secondary schools...
The study is set to re-open the debate about GRAMMAR SCHOOLS, WHICH WERE LARGELY ABOLISHED IN THE 1970S. MANY SAY THIS HAS BARRED THE WAY TO A GOOD EDUCATION FOR BRIGHT WORKING CLASS CHILDREN."
On 5 July 2011, Kevin Maguire said this in The Daily Mirror:
“FBI snitch Ronnie Reagan was a US President who disastrously believed GREED WAS GOOD. Inequality spiralled out of control, ordinary Americans picking up the tab for an ELITE PARTYING LIKE NEVER BEFORE.
Never the brightest, REAGAN NEARLY BANKRUPTED AMERICA WITH A STAR WARS OBSESSION. HE SENT ARMS TO OSAMA BIN LADEN’S FIGHTERS IN AFGHANISTAN. THOUSANDS OF NICARAGUANS DIED FROM ILLEGAL ARMING OF CONTRA REBELS.
THE US INVADED GRENADA IN THE CARIBBEAN, PART OF THE COMMONWEALTH, and used British bases to bomb Libya.
Rabid Ronnie’s new statue in London is good only for pigeons seeking somewhere to poop.”
Much though I don’t really want to, I have to agree with our Kev’s analysis here.
On 5 July 2011, Kirsty Walker said this in The Daily Mail:
"INCREASING AMOUNTS OF TAXPAYERS' MONEY WILL BE LOST TO CORRUPT FOREIGN REGIMES AS A RESULT OF THE GOVERNMENT'S 'BALLOONING' AID BUDGET, a senior civil servant admitted. Mark Lowcock, the highest ranking civil servant in the Department for International Development, also confessed that his department had no idea about the scale of public money already lost to fraud and corruption.
MPs on the influential public accounts committee said they were 'shocked' by the failure of officials to assess the scale of the problem at a time when SPENDING ON FOREIGN AID IS SET TO RISE BY 34 PER CENT IN REAL TERMS TO £12.6BILLION BY 2014...
The National Audit Office has already warned that Britain's aid programme is at 'risk' because of lax CONTROLS TO PREVENT FRAUD AND CORRUPTION.”
On 4 July 3011, The Daily Express quoted Josie Appleton, of the Manifesto Club civil liberties group, thus:
“Children at nursery have only just learned to speak so the idea that they can be homophobic or racist is utterly ridiculous. The obligation on teachers to report these incidents to authorities is a waste of time. Most are just kids falling out. They don’t need re-educating out of their prejudice.”
The Express explained:
“CHILDREN AS YOUNG AS THREE ARE BEING BRANDED BIGOTS AND RACISTS for remarks they make during spats in the playground. Cracking down on abusive words and terms that could be seen as racist, sectarian or homophobic has intensified in recent years as authorities attempt to stamp out bigotry in the workplace and in sport. Almost 2,000 nursery and school pupils in Scotland were reported to education authorities for making bigoted remarks over the last three years.”
On 4 July 3011, Leo McKinstry said this in The Daily Express:
“One of the most depressing traits of corporate Britain is A GLEEFUL, ALMOST AGGRESSIVE DISDAIN FOR OUR NATIONAL INTERESTS… AMONG TOO MANY COMPANIES AND STATE INSTITUTIONS THERE IS NOW AN OPEN CONTEMPT FOR OUR OWN PEOPLE. This absence of national pride is constantly on display, whether it be in THE EAGER OFFICIAL EMBRACE OF MULTICULTURALISM OR THE SURRENDER TO THE EUROPEAN UNION. THE DESTRUCTION OF OUR BORDERS, THE NEGLECT OF HISTORY IN SCHOOLS AND THE APPEASEMENT OF MILITANT ISLAM ARE ALL OTHER EXAMPLES of this destructive mentality...
Work and Pensions Secretary, Iain Duncan Smith... urged employers to hire more British workers instead of always relying on foreign labour… From Left-wing commentators came the predictable warnings about the risks of stoking up racism against foreigners, the kind of EMOTIONAL BLACKMAIL THAT HAS BEEN USED THROUGHOUT THE LAST DECADE TO CLOSE DOWN AN HONEST DEBATE ABOUT IMMIGRATION. Business leaders joined in this chorus of disapproval, though MUCH OF THEIR COMMENTARY AMOUNTED TO LITTLE MORE THAN ANTI-BRITISH PROPAGANDA. So they blathered about 'skill shortages' despite the reality that many of the jobs taken by migrants are unskilled while in advanced sectors like engineering and information technology there are, contrary to myth, disturbingly high rates of joblessness among British graduates.
The employers, like the politically correct brigade, also took to extolling the work ethic of migrants compared to supposedly lazy Britons. As usual they cited the diligence of Poles and other eastern Europeans though MORE THAN TWO THIRDS OF THE 580,000 IMMIGRANTS WHO ARRIVE HERE EVERY YEAR ACTUALLY COME FROM AFRICA AND ASIA AND MANY OF THEM ARE ONLY TOO KEEN TO JOIN THE DEPENDENCY CULTURE. MORE THAN 80 PER CENT OF SOMALIANS, FOR INSTANCE, LIVE IN TAXPAYER-FUNDED SOCIAL HOUSING. In addition, the focus on the hard-working Europeans ignores the fact that even when they hold jobs THEY CAN PUT A TREMENDOUS STRAIN ON OUR PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE, ESPECIALLY IF THEY BRING FAMILIES OVER HERE SINCE THEY ARE ENTITLED TO TAX CREDITS, CHILD BENEFIT, HOUSING, NHS TREATMENT AND SCHOOLING.
But by far the most ludicrous argument used against Duncan Smith was that it would be unjust, even illegal, to discriminate in favour of Britons and against foreigners. Yet THAT JUST SHOWS HOW FAR OFFICIAL BRITAIN HAS DESCENDED INTO THE MADHOUSE OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS. Twenty years ago it would not even have been a matter for debate that companies should recruit largely from the indigenous population. That would have just been common sense. Such an outlook still prevails in almost every other country in the world, from Japan to France. THE IDEA THAT THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG IN PREFERRING A BRITISH APPLICANT TO A FOREIGNER REVEALS THE TERRIFYING EXTENT TO WHICH THE QUASI-MARXIST CREED OF SELF-LOATHING HAS TIGHTENED ITS GRIP ON OUR SOCIETY.
THIS OUTLOOK REPRESENTS A FORM OF NATIONAL SUICIDE, BASED ON THE BELIEF THAT ONE OF OUR OWN PEOPLE HAS NO MORE RIGHTS IN THIS COUNTRY THAN SOMEONE FROM THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD. IT IS THE SAME SELF ABASEMENT THAT LEADS OUR GOVERNMENT TO LAVISH MONEY ON FOREIGN AID WHILE CUTTING PUBLIC SERVICES AT HOME.
What makes this approach even more offensive is its hypocrisy. Successive governments have made a fetish of tackling inequality in the workplace, constantly wailing about under-representation of women or ethnic minorities. Indeed, UNDER HARRIET HARMAN’S SO-CALLED 'EQUALITY LAW', PASSED LAST YEAR, EMPLOYERS ARE REQUIRED TO DISCRIMINATE POSITIVELY IN FAVOUR OF WOMEN AND ETHNIC MINORITIES WHEN IT COMES TO RECRUITMENT. All this, said Harman, is part of creating 'a new social order'. Yet it is a social order THAT EXCLUDES ORDINARY BRITONS.
The truth is that NO GROUP IS MORE EXCLUDED, MORE DISADVANTAGED TODAY THAN THE WHITE WORKING CLASS. OVER THE PAST DECADE 80 PER CENT OF ALL NEW JOBS HAVE GONE TO FOREIGNERS AND, WORRYINGLY, THAT HAS RISEN TO 87 PER CENT DURING THE PAST YEAR. So we have ended up in the grotesque position where THE LAW REQUIRES EMPLOYERS TO DISCRIMINATE IN FAVOUR OF WOMEN AND MINORITIES YET THE POLITICALLY CORRECT BRIGADE REACTS WITH OUTRAGE AT ANY SUGGESTION THAT FIRMS SHOULD DISCRIMINATE IN FAVOUR OF BRITISH PEOPLE. THE NEGLECT OF BRITONS WORKS IN OTHER WAYS TOO, LIKE IN THE DISMALLY LOW STANDARDS OF EDUCATION THAT LEAVE MILLIONS OF SCHOOL-LEAVERS EFFECTIVELY ILLITERATE AND INNUMERATE...
EVEN BEFORE THE RECENT RECESSION THERE WERE MORE THAN FIVE MILLION BRITONS OF WORKING AGE LIVING ON BENEFITS... THROWN ON THE SCRAPHEAP BY A LABOUR GOVERNMENT.”
On 2 July 2011, The Daily Mail quoted the response of David Frost, Director-General of the British Chambers of Commerce, to Iain Duncan Smith's speech the day before:
“After 11 years of formal education, EMPLOYERS SAY THEY GET KIDS COMING TO THEM WHO CAN’T WRITE, WHO CAN’T COMMUNICATE, AND WHO DON’T HAVE THAT WORK ETHIC… So, clearly, when you have these bright young Eastern Europeans who really want to work and have very good customer service skills then employers are going to turn to them, AND QUITE RIGHT. These businesses are competing IN A GLOBALISED ECONOMY.”
If a Machiavellian establishment with a malign agenda deliberately dumbs you down and then casts you adrift in order to prefer the foreigner in the “globalised economy,” you could be forgiven for giving up.
Especially when you recall how your ancestors slogged and slaved and sacrificed and died the deaths in all the wars dreamt up for them to die in by the Machivellians of bygone times.
Don’t give up, son.
Sharpen your pitchfork instead.
On 1 July 2011, the BBC quoted Paul Griffin, head of employment law at the law firm DBS, thus:
"Any favouring of British workers above those from the EU or anywhere else if they have the right to work here could make an employer liable for a claim for direct race discrimination under the Equalities Act.”
On 1 July 2011, in a speech to the Spanish Foundation for Analysis and Social Studies in Madrid, the Work and Pensions Secretary, Iain Duncan Smith, said this:
"WE RISK LEAVING MORE BRITISH CITIZENS OUT OF WORK AND THE MOST VULNERABLE GROUP WHO WILL BE THE MOST AFFECTED ARE YOUNG PEOPLE… But government cannot do it all. As we work hard to break welfare dependency and get young people ready for the labour market, WE NEED BUSINESSES TO GIVE THEM A CHANCE, AND NOT JUST FALL BACK ON LABOUR FROM ABROAD."
On 1 July 2011, The Daily Telegraph quoted Judith Hackitt, CBE, Chair of the Health and Safety Commission, thus:
“THE CREEPING CULTURE OF RISK-AVERSION AND FEAR OF LITIGATION ALSO PUTS AT RISK OUR CHILDREN’S EDUCATION AND PREPARATION FOR ADULT LIFE. CHILDREN TODAY ARE DENIED, OFTEN ON SPURIOUS HEALTH AND SAFETY GROUNDS, MANY OF THE FORMATIVE EXPERIENCES THAT SHAPED MY GENERATION.
PLAYGROUNDS HAVE BECOME JOYLESS, for fear of a few cuts and bruises…
In many cases, the people behind these unreasonable rulings are… MISGUIDED JOBSWORTHS… But a trend of far more concern to me is THE USE OF HEALTH AND SAFETY AS A CONVENIENT EXCUSE BY EMPLOYERS AND OTHER ORGANISATIONS CYNICALLY LOOKING FOR A WAY TO DISGUISE THEIR REAL MOTIVES…
HEALTH AND SAFETY HAS SURELY BECOME ONE OF THE MOST WELL-WORN AND DISPIRITING PHRASES IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE. From news reports to TV dramas, it has become convenient shorthand for SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE, STOPPING SOMEONE FROM DOING SOMETHING THEY WANT TO. Our message to bureaucrats… is clear… Don’t use health and safety law as a convenient scapegoat or we will challenge you.”
The Telegraph added:
"A litany of what she called 'daft decisions' in recent years has included ordering children to wear goggles to play conkers, banning running at a pancake race and stopping firefighters using the station pole!"
