Debt Tsunami Threatens Europe
by John De Roe

In its annual list of financial predictions, the CEBR said a new eurozone crisis was probable rather than possible 2011. The Think Tank cited the hundreds of billions of euros worth of debt that members must replace this year. What this means in layman's terms is many bonds, the vehicles which governments use to finance their overspend, reach maturity. Bond holders who have reveived iunterst on the value of their holdings will now want to cash them in.

The situation of many countries in the Eurozone means that purchasers of bonds, who are effectively lending money to those organisations issuing them are going to want higher interest rates if they are to buy new bonds to replace the ones they cash in. Similarly new purchasers are going to seek a higher return because financial instability of Eurozone nations means there is a higher risk of interest obligations being defaulted on.

"If the euro doesn't break up, this could be the year when it weakens substantially towards parity with the dollar," said Douglas Williams, chief executive of CEBR.

Spain and Italy alone must refinance more than 400billion of debt .

The Daily Stirrer has warned many times it would come to this.

Maternity Care On The Verge Of Breakdown
Maternity services are close to breaking point and care for mothers is worsening, the UK's leading midwife warns in a dramatic plea over the declining state of childbirth on the NHS. Labour wards are struggling to give women the proper quality of care under the "relentless" pressure of a record birth rate, staff shortages and increasingly complex births, says Cathy Warwick, general secretary of the Royal College of Midwives. Writing in the Observer, Warwick warns that the situation in maternity units is so grave the ...

comment by Ed Butt: Again we must say 'we told you so' having warned of this disaster in waiting in the maternity care departments of the National Health Service, in pre - Daily Stirrer days. Our predecessor Little Nicky Machiavelli wrote on this subject.

Once again however we are afraid we'll see the coalition government getting the blame for the mess labour made during their dominance from 1997 to 2010. We don't much care for the coalition or any other political grouping but at least let's give them a chance. It seems unfair that people as obsessed with the word 'fair' as Labour leader Ed Milliband and other leading figures in the party are could blame the Conservative governments of 1979 to 97 for all the country's ills right up to May 2010 but now accept no responsibility for their own incompetence and blame the new government for everything that is wrong with society after 13 years of Labour rule. The breakdown in maternity care is not due to the coalition government's planned public spending cuts which have not taken effect yet but are down to the financial idiocy of Labour minister from Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, architects of the disastrous PFI schemes that tip shitloads of taxpayers money from the public purse into private pockets, the insane growth of NHS bureaucracy at the expense of front line care and the slavish devotion of Labour to academics who have spent their lives cocooned in University faculties and are thus too divorced from reality to ever see the folly of making vocational occupations like nursing into degree - entry professions. All this move achieved apart from getting people out of the employment market and therefore off the jobless figures for a few years was to fill hospital wards with mincing queens who strut around brandishing their degrees in nursing while showing absolutely zero understanding of human nature and running a mile when a job involving anything messy or smelly needs dealing with.

Tory Backbenchers Set To Defeat Cameron On Crucial Europe Vote
Conservative backbenchers are preparing to ambush the controversial European Union Bill which goes before the Commons when MPs return from their Christmas break.
Eurosceptic Tories will table radical changes to the legislation, which they claim does not deliver on its promise of a referendum on future transfers of powers to the European Union.
If the changes strengthening the legislation are not accepted by the Government, some Conservatives said they might even vote down ...

comment - by Ian R Thorpe: And so Cameron and Clegg along with the voters learn another valuable lesson about coalition government. If this prediction becomes reality and Conservative backbenchers vote down the EU Bill because it does not contain a firm commitment to a referendum on any future proposals to transfer sovereign powers to the unelected bureaucrats of Brussels.

It should be remembered that the coalition leaders, David Cameron and Nick Clegg, like most European leaders are both deeply committed to expansion and further integration of the EU member states gradually moving towards a single European government with unified taxation and fiscal policies, criminal justice systems and foreign policy. Both Cameron and Clegg have supported the campaign to admit Turkey to the EU as a full member. Only last month the EU Commission's Spanish President Jose Barosso spoke in Lebanon of a European / Middle Eastern / African economic union. For people who have to have two links before they will believe anything you can read it here too: Africa - E U tie up. Fortunately most Conservative MPs are against further integration with the EU.

With Germany, France and Britain set to bear the brunt of bailing out the so called PIIGS, (Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Spain and Greece; the nations that have already or will shortly cave in under the burden of sovereign debt) do we really need to castrate ourselves by getting tied up with the middle east's terrorist states or Africa's economic basket cases. The majority of European voters say no which is why all European elections are revealing a marked swing to the right. The Unelected bureaucrats of Brussels and the big government tax eaters of member nations scenting even bigger bureaucratic empires to leach off tax revenues loudly say 'Yes,' as do the politicians who sent even more opportunities to strut the world stage and use the oxygen of media attention to inflate their egos.

While we must suspect Labour's motives in opposing this bill after the party spent its ten years in power up to May 2010 pushing the expansion and integration causes. Still, if the party's hatred of those who disagree with them and anger that their sense of entitlement to power has been trodden on drives them to the hypocritical course of defeating a policy they would have supported while in power, so long as it is a policy that would have worked against the interests of the voters and in the interests of big government and the one - worlders, we should thank them.

European Debt Markets Face Second Credit Crisis

European debt markets could be hit by a second credit crisis within months as fears grow over the huge volume of new bonds that must be sold by governments and banks in 2011.

Banks alone must refinance about 400bn (343bn) of debt in the first half of the year, but add in the more than 500bn European governments must replace over the same period, as well as further hundreds of billions of euros of mortgage-backed debt

Dumbing Down Has Destroyed Respect For Academics

Academic inflation is as dangerous to any country as its financial equivalent.

In Britain, as we report today, this insidious process has reached an unacceptable level. A far higher proportion of graduates is being awarded first-class degrees and upper seconds than was ...

read full story, Grade Inflation: Academia Has Lost It's Integrity

A story based on the latest official education statistics (and as usual we recommend you be wary of all statistics) proves something The Daily Stirrer and other common sense driven members of the new media corps have been telling the world for some time. Government's obsession with using statistics to prove educational standards are rising is just a front to cover up the politicisation of the academic community. It starts in primary school and goes right through to higher education.

One of the main drivers of grade inflation in the adademic world is money. Constantly improving results are required for schools, colleges and universities, particularly all the University of Usedtobeapoly establishments that have sprung up everywhere, to secure their funding from government coffers.

With respect for teachers and the politically correct curriculum they are forced to teach at an all time low and idiotic rules preventing the imposition of discipline and order in the classroom pupils are just not learning. Thus they are arriving at University with excellent qualifications on paper but in need of remedial educatiuon in basic numeracy and literacy.

Politics has no place in education but to the left everything is politics and the left has been allowed to hi - jack the education.

VAT increase comes into effect. Left warns it will cause the end of the world.

by John de Roe The increase in VAT from 17.5% to 20% came into effect today although many prices will not increase for several weeks. Labour leaders and others with a vested interest in destabilizing the coalition government are screaming that the increase will lead to a financial Armageddon and would drive the low paid into penury.

Anybody who has the slightest understanding of how VAT works would know this is not the case.

When the Labour government made a temporary cut in VAT to 15%, a move they claimed would stimulate the economy, it was barely noticed and the economy continued to flatline. When the VAT reate was restored last year to 17.5% the economic Armageddonists were screaming it would plunge us into a second recession. It didn't, the economy continued to flatline.

So is the latest increase, made necessary by the structural deficit inherited by the coalition from the irresponsible loons of Labour's treasury team and the irresponsibility of Labour's open door immigration policy, likely to have a significant effect on the economy?

I would think not.

What interests me however is a remark made by Chancellor George Oborne when speaking to the media.

from The Daily Telegraph
The Chancellor said he considered the new 20 per cent VAT rate permanent and refused to say it would come down once the economy recovers and the deficit paid down.

Mr Osborne also seized on Labours admission that they were still happy to raise National Insurance ahead of any VAT increase to meet deficit reduction plans. The Chancellor said that was a tax on jobs and would hit

Osborne Would Lower Income Tax Before Cutting VAT

This might indicate a fundamental change of approach by the coalition to taxation, the switch from direct to indirect taxation talked of for decades but never truly implemented. The problem with income tax is it taxes work. People do not have a choice, your money is snatched by the government before you see it. They tell us it is used to provide vital services but the NHS is funded by National Insurance and transport should be funded from the punitive taxes on fuel we have always endured in Britain. I think an analysis would reveal that most of what we hand over in income tax is spent on employing vast armies of form fillers, rubber stamp bangers and paperclip chain makers.

The only public service this army performs is to protect us from the true horror of how few people in the UK economy are now employed in real jobs.

Record Manufacturing Growth Boosts Recovery Hopes

by Xavier Connolly

Manufacturing activity last month grew at its fastest pace since 1994 as exports drove new orders. The acceleration, reflected in the closely watched Markit/CIPS manufacturing purchasing managers index (PMI), was sharper than expected at 58.3 where any figure above 50 indicates expansion. Economists were expecting ...
read full story Record Growth In Manufacturing

Thanks to the visionary wisdom of John Major, possibly our greatest Prime Minister (said Xav with tongue firmly in cheek, while the Eurozone stuggles and even the mighty German economic juggernaut falters under the burden of sovereign debt, Britain, while hardly racing ahead or setting the ground alight in our wake is pottering along with good news slightly outweighing bad.

For all John Major's faults he did keep us out of the European single currency and as one of my colleagues wrote yesterday and as the wider world is beginning to realise the creation of the European Monetary System was never intended to create a stable economic community. The real agenda was the lunatic notion of crrating a European superstate.

To lump Germany together with France, Britain and Holland into a political union with basket cases like Greece and Portugal was the insane policy of unelected bureaucrats intent on building an empire for the benefit of their largely faceless paymaster, the one world fascists of the Bilderberg Group. If this sounds like a Conspiracy theory here's a name. Maurce Strong. Never heard of him? He is one of the most powerful men in the world. Just Google that name and find out what he was unto throughout the 1990s and in the past decade. Thanks to John Major Britain has managed to stand aside from the chaos that was bound to be the result of trying to splice together steel hawsers and silk threads. Now because the government have been able to weaken the pound to the benefit of exports our manufacturers, under attack for so long first from Margaret Thatcher's conservatives during their war on the workers and later from New Labour who seemed to go to war on everybody except the academics, lawyers and bureaucrats who make up the membership of 'the people's party' these days are now finding the playing field being tilted in their favour.

The change in the economic environment since the coalition government took power and shifted the focus from pandering to the interests of minorities, promoting immigration and expanding the public sector to supporting manufacturing, rolling back the idiocies of politically correct thinking and controlling the deficit has encouraged a spectaculr turnaround in manufacturing.

One hopes this trend can be maintained and we can eventually get back to being a manufacturing nation rather than a nation of bankers, call centre clerks and property developers.

Facebook Suicide

by Ian R Thorpe

In a week in which the ever more fickle mainstream media have been heaping praise on Facebook simply because somebody who it either an idiot or an evil control freak is willing to pay around $25billion for this site that has never made a penny in profit despite its (very dubious) claims to have 600 million users worldwide and has no busimess model other than encouraging people to become addicted to the 'virtual' lifestyle it offers and thus abandon real life, we are saddened by this story of another Facebook suicide

Facebook Suicide - Why Did Nobody Help My Daughter

The first paragraph of the report in a National Newspaper read:

The devastated mother of a woman who told 1,048 Facebook "friends" she had just taken a fatal overdose has asked why none of them helped her.

Simone Back, 42, posted a last message on the social networking site at 10.53pm on Christmas Day saying: "Took all my pills be dead soon bye bye everyone."

Some of the Facebook friends posted messages calling her a liar and one said it was "her choice".

From that we get a glimpse of the pernicious effect social networking is having on a society that has evolved over five million years based on human contact, on shared interests (initially for the first hominids that stood on their back legs an interest in staying alive) and on the bonds of community that the necessity of sharing our living space, food gathering activities and self protection needs impose.

The internet and social networks isolate us from those natural communities and encourage us to live in bubbles of unreality. We may have several hundred friends on a social network and not know any of them. We would even be likely to walk past such friends in the street and not recognise them. Furthermore many of our friends could be the same person and we would not know it.

The time has come for a new perspective on the internet. There are people saying it is an evl influence. It is not, it is neither good nor evil but it can facilitate both. Therefore to counter arguments for regulation by saying it is a force for good do not stand up. People can do good things or bad things. If we do not constrain the activities of those who do bad things their actions negate all the good in the world. I do not believe in evil in a religious sense, to me evil is nothing but extreme selfishness.

The internet, in the way it isolates addicts from reality, encourages such selfishness. Some people can get a vicarious thrill from looking into the lives of others, particularly those naive enough to live their lives online. Some take delight in being hurtful, in rubbishing the achievements of people, in watching the suffering of others.

Anybody who thinks that is healthy is very sick indeed.

VAT Rise: Saving The Economy Or Sucking Up To The PowerfulSimon Jenkins, The Guardian:
George Osborne's VAT rise illustrates an unbending truth of politics: it's easier to raise 13bn from the poor than upset VIPs - an opposing view to that expressed by John de Roe in The Daily Stirrer yesterday.

An intelligent argument from one of the few genuine liberals still working in mainstream media as opposed to the incoherent howling we are getting from the rabid lefties at the BBC and The Guardian.


Flu Deaths Hit Fifty This Year

by Ed Butt

Flu Deaths Hit Fifty This Year More official bullshit from the Ministry of Fear and Panic. Quite what the aim of this is as most of the overbought flu vaccine from the bird flu scare of a few years ago, another pandemic that did not happen, are past their 'use by' date now and clinics are running out of vaccine.

People need to be told not to panic, that (as Dr. Hilary Jones assured viewers on breakfast TV this morning, 'flu is a relitavely mild illness and only in a very small number of cases does it pose a serious threat to life or long term wellbeing.

So WTF is the point of the government putting our divel like this from a doctor in the North East region:

There is a huge burst of H1N1 (swine flu) marching up the country.

There are many more people being referred for ECMO treatment than they are used to, and there are not the ECMO beds that would appear to be required at the minute.

We can accept a certain amount of scaremongering in the cause of Pharmaceutical Corporation's profits but that kind of thing should be a crminal offence. Sadly we are quickly learning that despite their early promises The Coalition are backing off from their promise to roll back the nanny state and allowingthemselves to be influenced b y the self serving scumbags of the academic community, control freak bureaucrats, the power seking professions and the financial inducements offered by corporate interests.

Last week The Daily Stirrer reported:

... Dr Winter, a consultant in intensive care medicine at the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham, said there were empty critical care beds in the network that his hospital belonged to, which covers Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire and Burton-on-Trent. "I wouldn't over-egg this," he added. "Swine flu is just another form of seasonal flu, and we usually get 3,000 deaths a year from seasonal flu. Swine flu is just one of the three strains [of flu] circulating." ...
Read full story SwineFlu Revisited

That puts the whole hype into perspective. 50 so far this winter, i.e. from the beginning of November. So if we compare that to an average year and say that we are a third of the way through the 'flu season we are heading for a year with fewer deaths from 'flu like viruses than usual.

SO WHY ARE WE BEING TOLD IT'S PANIC STATIONS?

HOW MANY DOSES OF VACCINE DO THE COALITION HAVE TO SELL TO EARN THEIR BUNGS FROM BIG PHARMA?

Maybe it is just an example of the irresistible compulsion to waste taxpayers' money that grips all politicians the moment they assume power.

If this is an example of David Cameron using his nudger it loks as if we will have to castrate him very soon.

This might throw some light on it however.
David Cameron tells business leaders he will boost investment in aerospace, pharmaceuticals and green energy, the industries of the future

Radio Telescopes Photograph Nearest Galaxy To Earth

by Profanicus Maximus. We were intrigued by this story today.

A spectacular new photo of our nearest galaxy lit up like a neon sign has been captured by European astronomers using state of the art space telescopes.

Regular Readers of The Daily Stirrer will know we are somewhat sceptical about 'science.' Now there is a lot of good and valuable work done in research and development using those accumulated bodies of knowledge known as The Sciences. But when people start trying to pass off speculative research or even unsubstantiated and unproveable theories as 'science' it is a sure sign we are dealing with research grant bludgers, Nobel Prize phishers and useless twunts who plant to spend all their worthless lives in the unreality bubbles provided by universities where they can live in relative luxury without ever having to trouble themselves with a day's real work.
These prize dicks who claim to have photographed the nearest galaxy to earth are cases in point.
read full story:
Telescopes Photograph Nearest Galaxy

Now just think about this paragraph carefully.

Both images, released as a composite on Wednesday by the European Space Agency, were taken over Christmas.

The view would be impossible from Earth because both X-rays and infrared radiation from space is absorbed by our own atmosphere.

A composite... Both X rays and infra red radiation from space is absorbed... ?

from Compton's Encyclopedia.
X rays are a type of electromagnetic radiation--oscillating electric and magnetic fields traveling at the speed of light. Their usefulness lies in their ability to penetrate matter. X rays have been used as a powerful probe to study distant astronomical objects. X rays, which can penetrate all mirrors, are difficult to focus in a conventional telescope, but special X-ray telescopes are designed so that incoming X rays strike deeply concave mirrors at small, glancing angles so that they can be brought to a focus on detectors

infrared, designating or of those invisible rays just beyond the red end of the visible spectrum: their waves are longer than those of the spectrum colors but shorter than radio waves ...

So these 'scientists' have not photographed anything. They have taken readings of various type of radiation coming from the direction of the Andromeda Galaxy and using data generated from that have created a computer simulation of what they think the galaxy might look like ... or might have looked like 2.5 million years ago because that is when the light arriving here now was emitted.

It will be another two and a half million years before before we know whether the Andromeda galaxy was even still there when the radiation from which these simulations were constructed arrived at the orbiting telescope.

Now if you bear in mind the fact that light travelles at 186,000 miles per second (in a vacuum, which space isn't) and our fastest spacecraft yet launched has only achieved speeds in the region of 35,000 mph. In one hour then light travels 670616629 miles (Yahoo answers) That is over 25,000 times faster than the fastest spaceship we have yet built.

So extrapolate that and we find with current technology it would take us 67 million years to get to the Andromeda galaxy. In that time our astronauts would have forgotten why they wanted to go in the first place.

Scientists claim they are on the verge of creating new methods of propulsion that will enable us to travel at speeds much closer to that of light. We would also need a whole new range of materials to withstand the stresses of travelling at such speeds. We should file these claims in the same recepticle as the ones made by computer scientists for the past forty years that they are on the verge of building machines that can think for themselves. The one where we put the stuff that is going to be recycled as toilet paper. Such claims are nothing more than research grant phishing. There would be a better chance on seeing a return on money invested in the schemes of Mr. Nibudongu Chumbawamba the former Nigerian government official who regularly seeks help in expatriating his fortune after his bank accounts were frozen by a new government.

There is a big difference between the real science that can be proved by demonstration and 'science' which is all about theory, speculation, computer simulation and wasting money on things that can never produce any tangible benefits. Enthusiasts for the second kind of 'science' perhaps need 'professional help' if they really find it so difficult to get their heads round one simple fact.

Terror Alert Raised At Major Air Traffic Hubs

The terrorist threat level at major transport hubs in the UK has been raised to severe, it was reported today.

Terror Alert Raised At Major Air Traffic Hubs

WANT TO KNOW WHY THE TERRORISTS CAN JERK WESTERN SECURITY FORCES CHAIN SO EFFECTIVELY?
Ed Butt writes: How American Incompetence Armed Al Qaeda an in depth report in The Guardian throws light on the chaos that existed in Iraq in the years after Saddam Hussein was overthrown.

The report focuses on the looting of Saddam's main munitions plant from which vast store of weapons and thousands of tons of explosives were taken after the Ba'athist regime collapsed.

No doubt the current US administation will blame the Bush government for this while supporters of George W. Bush will blame either the current Commnder-in-Chief, America's allies or the people in charge during Bill Clinton's presidency. The Daily Stirrer has not ben a fan on any recent Presidents or Prime Ministers. All the political leaders touched by this debacle since its beginnings in the first Gulf War in 1991 have been to a greater or lesser degree self serving shits.

But the problem is not with them, it lies much lower down the command chain with the officers on the ground and also with education systems obsessed with politically correct thinking and with the job of turning out from our schools identical little conformists instead of individuals capable of gaining the skills and experience to make the right decisions and get things done.

Politically Correct thinking, when faced with a problem refers to procedure or awaits instruction from above. The kind of people we need as miiitary officers, civil servants or business managers are those who look at a problem from all angles, make sure they understand it properly and then do what needs to be done.

We did not have such people in Iraq or Afghanistan, we do not have them at home to deal with terror threats, the problems posed by climate chaos or the increasing industrial dominance of the far east. Our leaders are more concerned with same sex marriage and adoption righs, with allowing screaming queens to mince around the battlefields brandishing pink weapons with promoting people way above their level of competence simply because they have dark skin or ovaries or sucking up to Muzza religious lunatics who want to kill everybody that does not worship their god.

We're fucked.

Technical Schools To Be Revived

Tens of thousands of children will be able to abandon academic study at 14 to undertake vocational training under plans unveiled last night.

Up to 70 technical schools teaching youngsters practical skills from bricklaying to fashion are to be opened within the next five years.

The scheme is one of the most radical shake-ups of the education system since the creation of comprehensives and is aimed at equipping a new generation of workers with the skills for business.

However, the move comes amid fears that pupils are too young to decide their future at that age, and that it will create ...

Technical Schools Revived

Xavier Connolly writes:
A move like this is long overdue. Although I lecture in engineering education is a second career, until I was in my fifties I worked in engineering. Thus it has long been very apparent to me that one of the main reasons the education system has failed pupils, and particularly boys, so badly it because it was hijacked by academics. Even practical subjects like mechanical or electrical engineerting have been taugh in a way that emphasised the abstract and theoretical over the practical and demonstrable.

Most boys and young men like practical demonstarations. Show them how to take a car engine apart and put it back together and they will gain an adequate understanding of the principles involved. Show them a lot of mathematical formulae and they will turn from reality to dreams of achieving celebrity through TV shows like The X Factor.

Academics, thinkers, scholars are a very important part of the structure of society whether they work in theoretical physics or ancient history. Few such people are needed in a functioning society however and few are truly cut out for such a career. In education for several decades now the emphasis has been on academic learning.

We can learn from books, we can learn from practical tuition or we can learn by experience and by osmosis (simply absorbing knowledge from our environment. Academics sneer at this because such learning has nothing to do with them but it is the most important kind of learning, they way we all learn to speak our mother tongue.

Bringing back the Technical Schools and taking the doers out of the deadening atmosphere created by academics is the best thing we can do for education.

Pakistani Men See White Girls As Easy Meat

Somebody needed to speak out about how ethnic minorities are getting away with, if not quite murder some very nasty stuff, thanks to the protection of the Politically Correct Thought Police who styling themselves 'progressives' have hijacked the national agenda. Well done to former Labour minister Jack Straw for braving the wrath of the rabid mob.

from The Daily Telegraph
The Blackburn MP has called on the Pakistani community to be "more open" about the issue after describing about a "specific problem" involving young Pakistani men's attitudes towards white girls. He was speaking after two Asian men were jailed after subjected a series of vulnerable girls to rapes and sexual assaults. Abid Mohammed Saddique, 27, was jailed for a minimum of ...

Read full story:Pakistani Men See White Girls As Easy Meat

Comment by Ian R Thorpe:

Sensationalist reporters and race obsessed lefties are bound to try to make a mountain out of this molehill. It has been clear to most people living in North East Lancashire for some time that the Blackburn M.P. was not happy with the attitudes to British ways and customs of a section of the Pakistani community.

The targeting of young white girls by Asian men has been going on a long time and when Mr. Straw uses the term vulnerable here he does not mean those with learning difficulties or physical disabilities. He is talking about those emotionally starved young women who have grown up in broken homes, deprived of a male figure or perhaps with transient male figures in their lives who were likely to behave inappropriately to the adolescent daughters of partners.

This increased incidence of dysfunctional home life is a result of the Conservatives war on the working class from 1979 to 1997 and Labour's war on the family, European values and common sense before and since. Jack Straw would never have dared to criticise an immigrant community and particularly one of dark skinned ethnicity while he was a member of a Labour government. The Thought Police led by Harriet Harperson would have lynched him.

Unfortunately what Mr. Straw says is true. And what is more such unacceptable behaviour is condoned by the Politically Correct Thought Police in the name of "embracing cultural diversity." Diversity my arse. It may be acceptable to fuck pubescent girls in the tribal lands of Pakistan but not in Britain. Can you imagine the howls and screams of the Politically Correct Thought Police if a young white man seduced an under age Pakistani girl. Think of the noise they make when a while male is exposed as the lover of a thirteen or fourteen year old girl (even if she is consenting) then multiply it by a hundred or more.

My first encounter with the hypocrisy of politically correct thinkers came about thirty years ago. At the time I was doing some radio work part time and it being a BBC local radio station, strident left wing feminists were somewhat over represented on the staff. The worst of these was a real "all men are rapists and should be castrated" type of harridan.

One day the local news was about a rape case, a British girl had been raped and police were looking for an Asian man.

"Oh, they'll never catch him," Miss Castratemall said, "Asian people have this wonderful community ethos, as soon as they knew he was in trouble he would have been taken to relatives in another Asian community and he will be on a flight back to Pakistan as soon as the way is clear. They look after member of their community, its marvellous." The stupid bitch could not see that she was being hypocritical. She was the type of feminist who only needed to see a man looking at page three in The Currant Bun to go off on one about evil masculinity, but it was OK for someone from an ethnic minority to brutally rape an English girl.

What horrible people lefties truly are. Never let them bully you into thinking their posturing is because they care about their causes. All they are interested in is being seen to care

So that is the kind of stupidity we are up against from the left. If the political establishment do not face up to it there is going to be trouble, big nasty trouble in many areas with large immigrant communities.

It reads like something from The Book Of Revelations.

After cavalcades of dead birds and fish from Arkansas and Texas to Sweden and New Zealand, tests are being carried out on the bodies of turtle doves in Italy after hundreds rained down near Ravenna.

The turtle dove case is the largest incident to have hit Europe so far in Sweden 50 jackdaws were found dead. Italian officials said they expected results from the tests on Monday.

One for the conspiracy theorists as scientists try but fail to explain this away by saying "There will be a rational scientific explanation."

Scientists are idiots. To say they will explain incidents like this and then fail to do so or offer an explanaion so full of holes it looks like a fetishists underwear only discredits the science they use as a quasi religious crutch to prop up their certainties. Quite simply events like this are commonplace, they happen all the time. Suddenly one will get reported and then a spate of similar incidents will make the news. And then it will be old news and not get reported any more.

The world is unscientific, life is not controlled by nice, neat, predictable algorithms. Inexplicable things happen but the biggest mystery is why people waste time trying to explain them. Naa Naaa Na Naa Naaa.

When something like this does make the papers and scientists hysterically try to deny there is anything odd going on it only encourages those of us who know life is insane and the only way to get through it is to take nothing seriously to start having fun with conspiracy theiries. The best thing about conspiracy theories is they get sciencyheads more wound up than the odd, inexplicable events that trigger them.

America's Debt Crisis Traps Less Well Off In Depression Conditions

by John de Roe

News this weekend has been dominated by the assassination attempt on a Democratic Congresswoman and her companions in Tuscon, Arizona. As the story is everywhere there is little point The Daily Stirrer commenting other than to offer our condolences to those injured and the families of people who died in the attack.

What this incident has done however is to focus the attention of the outside world on some very worrying social trends in the world's most powerful nation, namely the polarisation on political, racial and regional lines and the seething anger at most levels of American society which has led to the re-emergence of armed para - military organisations of a kind that appeals to the young man accused of the Tuscon on Gabrielle Giffords' party.

The United States, having been steered onto the rocks of financial crisis by successive administrations all the way back to those of the 1960s is now sinking deeper and more dangerous crisis. Self-congratulation by the US administration and its finance department who claim they have avoided a return to the conditions that prevailed in the great depression of the 1930s is premature.

We always advise readers to be wary of statistics but there are some details in the US retail chain store data for December that could be very significant. Stephen Lewis, an analyst for Monument Securities highlights figures showing that luxury outlets saw an 8.1pc rise from the same month a year ago, but discount stores catering to Americas poorer people rose just 1.2pc.

Luxury retailers Nieman Marcus and Saks are booming. Sales of Cadillac and Porsche cars have rocketed by 30% yet Best Buy, Target, and Walmart have languished. Such is the effect of the Federal Reserve's policy of printing money or as they like to call it Quantitative Easing (QE). To remind you how this works, all governments sell bonds as a means of borrowing money to cover shortfalls in revenue. The government will issue a bond with a nominal face value and a guarantee to pay a fixed rate of interest on the face value. Bond traders will then buy the bonds at a discount or premium. So if a $1million, 3%, 3 year, is bought for $925,000 the purchaser gets 3% of $1million for three years, not 3% of the money they lave actually loaned to the government.

What governments have been doing since the worst of the crisis in 2008 is selling bonds through one department and buying them back through another thus creating money on paper. Why are they doing this? Because nobody wants to buy bonds for a price the governments find acceptable. The more a bond's face value is discounted the higher the actual rate of interest. Through QE and ridiculously low base interest rates (the rates at which banks borrow from government) governments hoped to restart the debt driven economy by flooding the economy with cheap money the banks could borrow and would be happy to lend to already overstretched customers.

This did not work. Banks simply borrowed money from governments at 0.5% and loaned it back at over 3% in the case of stable economies and up to 10% in for economic basket case nations. Now quantitative Easing is being used to try to prop up the stock market as currencies lose value and a combination of inflation (an inevitable consequence of QE) and demand drives up commodity prices.

The Fed no even tried to deny that the purpose of its latest blast of bond purchases, or QE2, is to boost Wall Street, perhaps because it has so clearly failed to achieve its stated purpose of driving down borrowing costs to business / retail customers..

Ben Bernankes make or break strategy risks polarising Americas already bitterly divided society long before it can begin to help the poor, the long term jobless and those people who have dropped off the radar, the so called 99ers, in the industrial heartlands.

The retail data can be distorted by short term influences such as bad weather, an international crisis or an apparent threat to security but it fits in with other, more solid facts. Numbers of people on food stamps have risen to 43.2m, an all time-high of 14pc of the population. Recipients receive debit cards not stamps -- currently worth about $140 a month under President Obamas stimulus package (I took that figure from a BBC report but it seems very low so treat it with caution). Communiques from a conference of local authority leaders (Mayors in the US) said visits to soup kitchens are up 24pc this year. There are 643,000 people needing shelter each night.

Jobs data released on Friday was again shocking. The only the reason that headline unemployment fell to 9.4pc was that so many people dropped out of the system altogether. British readers will be familiar with this statistical quirk, we have had a year of hearing the jobless total had fallen while numbers in work had fallen too. It's a simple deception, limit the time a person is entitled to job seeker's allowance then shift them to a more demeaning benefit, welfare in the US, income support in the UK, and say they are deemed to be no longer looking for work and remove them from the statistics.

Actual jobs in America contracted by 260,000 to 153,690,000. The labour participation rate for working-age men over 20 dropped to 73.6pc, the lowest the since the data series began in 1948.

Corporate America is in a V-shaped recovery, said Robert Reich, a former labour secretary. Thats great news for investors whose savings are mainly in stocks and bonds, and for executives and Wall Street traders. But most American workers are trapped in an L-shaped recovery.

It is no surprise that Americas armed dissident movement has resurfaced. For a glimpse into this sub-culture, read Time Magazines Locked and Loaded: The Secret World of Extreme Militias".

Covert Unit To Tackle Domestic Extremism

from The Dauily Telegraph
The National Public Order Intelligence Unit (NPOIU), which exists to counter "domestic extremism", is so secretive that police will not confirm the precise location of its base or the identity of its head.

The paranoia that exists in government is always amusing. While for ordinary people "Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow creps in this petty pace from day to day to the last syllable of recorded time" as we get on with our lives knowing those lives could be terminated in any of a thousand ways at any moment the government and security services, the people who delude themselves we look to them for protection from all risks continue to jump from shadows, be victims of the fear and panic they spread to justify their salaries and have their strings jerked daily by the stories printed in sensationalist newspapers.

E.on Hits Energy Bills For Domestic Users

The price rises of 9 per cent for electricity and 3 per cent for its gas customers comes into force on February 4. For those that take both sources of energy from the company, their annual bill will go from 1,187 to 1,250.

An estimated 4 million e.on customers will be hit by the increase.

It is the latest bill increase to hit families after the rise in VAT to 20 per cent at the start of the year, along with petrol climbing towards 6 a gallon and stubbornly high food prices.

The company blamed "rising industry costs", adding that wholesale energy prices have ...

Read full story:E.on Hits Energy Bills For Domestic Users

John de Roe comments:
Sharply increasing energy prices serve to remind us the global crisis is far from over, indeed it may be still in its first phase. The debt crisis has burst the bubble that was keeping western economies afloat but now we face the developing nations with their huge populations demanding better living standards in return for their labour and resources thus raising costs of both the labour and increasingly scarce resources the west relies on.

At the moment we are facing increased competition for oil and gas supplies which are worldwide. When those increases filter through to the manufacturing and food producing industries we are going to face rising prices not just for energy but for everything.

Retirement At 65 by Default Ends

from The Daily Telegraph:
End Of Default Retirement Age
Fulfilling a pledge in the Coalition agreement, Employment Relations Minister Ed Davey heralded the end of the default retirement age.

Age campaigners have long called for it to be scrapped.

But, while less than a third of firms still insist on people leaving on their 65th birthday, there are concerns among business leaders about the change.

The Institute of Directors has criticised the move - featured in both the Conservative and Liberal Democrat election manifestos - for reducing flexibility for employers.

Ed butt comments:
That's going to do wonders for the young jobless. The economic mismanagement of governments over the past thirty years has created a pensions time bomb. Many people who responded to the exhortations to 'save for a comfortable retirement' are now finding that having denied themselves luxuries in order to provide security in retirement for themselves, their pension funds have been eroded by inflation, stock market boom and bust economics, stealth taxes and fraudulent practices in the finance industry.

Some pensioners have allways supplemented their income with part time or low paid work but if all pensioners now have the opportunity to stay in work so long as they feel able and to thus keep their savings growing who can blame them. This will only deny jobs to younger people of course.

Nobody in politics or the civil service has bothered to give much thought to the age problem created by the sudden increase in average life span in the past half century. When the retirement age was set the average age at death (distorted by the two great wars of the 20th century) was under 65. When I started work in the 1960s it had risen to 68 for men, 71 for women. Now people expect to live until over eighty and longevity expert Prof. Aubrey de Grey says life expectancy is increasing by almost a year for every real time year that passes.

We have to lower our expectations or find a way of employing a lot of extra people.

Interest rates on credit cards and loans are expected to increase by between 2 percentage and 3 percentage points in the coming four years meaning the average household will have to divert a significant chunk of their disposable income to paying their debt, accountants PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) said yesterday.
The report comes just a few days after many economists predicted ...read full storyRising Cost Of Credit Cards

The central banks have held interest rates at insanely low levels for far too long now. This measure was intended to stimulate economic activity but was always dooned to fail while governments were running huge deficits and having to sell huge sums of bonds to cover the shortfall in revenue.

Richard Thompson, partner at PwC, said: "Consumers will find it hard to absorb such large increases in debt interest payments without cutting back on spending.
"Given the historical significance of debt fuelled consumption to the UK economy, this prolonged contraction may impede retail sales and could be a drag on economic growth."

So there you have it. As the Daily Stirrer has predicted many times we are in for the long haul, an economic slump rather than the quick recovery political leaders have promised.

Cost Of Fuel And Food Drives Inflation Up


from The Daily Telegraph
The official measure of inflation showed that prices rose 3.7pc in the year to December, up from the previous month's 3.3pc rate as the soaring cost of oil drove the biggest monthly increase on record.

The figures from the Office for National Statistics mean that inflation, as tracked on the consumer price index (CPI), stayed at least one percentage point away from the Banks 2pc target for the whole of last year.

The end of year surge also signalled that inflation spiked above the peak forecast by Bank policymakers whose central projections were for it to hit ...

Never underestimate the amount of influence weilded by a few multi national corporations over the minutiae of ordinary people's daily lives. And if you want to know how that influence works, reread George Orwell's 1984.

Lord Young To Do Less Speaking -The Daily Telegraph

John De Roe Comments:
The problem is Lord Young is right. Thanks to the ridiculously low and if they continue much longer they will be harmfully low interest rates many homebuyers whose jobs are reasonably secure are finding they are better off than they have ever been. One must hope for their sake they are not tempted by the government's propaganda aimed at kicking off a new debt led comsumer boom to restore some growth in the economy.

If they do not resist that tempation their situation could become very bad the moment interest rates start to rise. It is inevitable interest rates will rise given the inflationary pressures building in the economy and the exploding price of commodities in global markets caused in part by the collapse of the US dollar due to Obama's loonytoons monry printing policies.

Lord Young was of course insensitive to say what he did while an adviser to the government. Many people are suffering because of the recession. Many more are worried because their jobs are not secure or they are unable to find decent housing because the mortgage drought is forcing up the price of rental accomodation to unaffordable levels.

The nation is in a much bigger mess than anybody is prepared to say. What pisses me off about Labour's attacks on Lord Young however is the mess was entirely caused by their finncial irresponsibility. Ironically it is the working class and particularly the young working class, the support of whom is Labour's raison d'etre who are suffering mot from their incompetence in government.

The middle classes whose votes Labour bought ("We a very relaxed about people getting stinking rich":- Tony Blair) are the ones Lord Young was referring to who have never had it so good. Unfortunately they eventually found Labour's authoritarianism and obsession with minority rights unpalatable and returned to the Tories.

It's a funny old game, politics.

Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose

Did anyone really think, did you really really think that throwing Labour out and letting in the Conservative led coalition would change anything.

I have said before it is time to abandon the party system, remember that the UK constitution requires thata Member of Parliament's principle loyalties are to the nation and to their consituents. Party loyalty does not even get into the starting line up.

We must hope enough Lib Dems are prepared to make a stand on this and bring their leaders to heel. Otherwise we may see the Lib Dems obliterated at the next election and the only availbale coalitions to Labour and Conservatives, neither of which can ever again be trusted to rule alone being to seek support from Greens, UKIP, the Nationalists, Siin Fein or the Democratic Unionists.

Tory Chief Attacks Bigotry Against Muslims

Islamophobia has passed the dinner-table test and is seen by many as normal and uncontroversial, Baroness Warsi will say in a speech on Thursday. The minister without portfolio will also warn that describing Muslims as either moderate or extremist fosters growing prejudice.
Lady Warsi, the first Muslim woman to attend Cabinet, has pledged to use her position to wage an ongoing battle against bigotry. Her comments are the most high-profile intervention ...
Ed Butt comments: Up to now The Daily Stirrer has been broadly sympathetic to the Coalition government. Now we must ask, what is this stupid bitch doing in the cabinet? It is not that Baroness Warsi is a Muslim or a woman you understand but that she clearly does not know what 'bigot' means.

People are entitled to hold whatever opinions they wish and to freely express those opinions in private. A bigot is somebody who is not willing to listen to the opinions of others or consider any point of view but their own. Is Islamic extremism a subject of dinner table conversation as Baroness Warsi suggests? I have to say here I have never attended a dinner party with my predominantly white friends at which the subject of Islam has been part of the conversation. Interventions such as Baroness Warsi's in the non debate are aimed at impressing upon ordinary people that the political elite are not going to tolerate voters thinking for themselves. In other words the coalition have fallen under the spell of the Politically Correct Thought Police. Thus we face four more years of bullshit, bad government and pandering to minorities and unelected pressure groups. David Cameron should seize on Baroness Warsi's racially provocative words to sling her out of the cabinet and to remind others who seek to subvert democracy by suppressing public debate or dictating what opinions are and are not acceptable. Britain on the whole does pretty well in terms of racial tolerance, most of us do not care about the colour of a person's skin or what kind of establishment they pray in. We take people as we find them. Human nature is much the same the world over, in any society there will always be those who dislike foreigners or anybody who is identifiably different. We must tolerate such people as we in the majority tolerate the difference of people in minorities. There can only be one set of laws, SAME RULES APPLY, and the mainstream should not be asked, as we often are, to change the way we do things because certain minorities do not like it. Apart from that, for Baroness Warsi's information she is well out of order. The nations of Europe are non starters in the race hate race. Most African nations perform quite creditable, especially in the genocide states but the runaway winner of the King Ed and Queen Hattie Gold Cup for racism is TA - DAAAA The Indian Subcontinent.

Children Are Bring Given Chemical Cosh For Shyness

Children are being prescribed mind-altering chemical cosh drugs for conditions such as shyness and mild social anxiety, behaviour experts have warned. Young people are routinely being given medication to treat normal childhood conditions, it was claimed, despite fears over their long-term health.

The disclosure came as it emerged that the number of eight- to 13-year-olds on drugs such as Ritalin has soared seven-fold since 1997. In many cases, pupils are being put on medication amid fears from parents, teachers and doctors over a serious deterioration in their behaviour. But Dave Traxson, a senior educational psychologist who works in schools in the West Midlands, warned that normal childhood conditions like shyness...

read full report:Children Given Chemical Cosh For Shyness

Ed Butt comments: Ein volk. Ein Reich. Ein Bureaucracy. Naziism By Stealth. We really must stop this bureaucratic Naziism now. The politicisation of the education system to facilitate the brainwashing of pupils with politically correct ideas and turn them into compliant, unthinking drones competely dependent on the state is bad enough. Using prescribed medication to suppress individuality however is far too much like something from the scriptwriters of The Third Reich soap opera.

Shyness, brashness and showing off, attention seeking, lack of concentration and other such inconvenient behaviour are part of childhood. A shy child might grow up to be the life and soul of the party. On the other hand they could continue to be reserved and not comfortable in large gatherings. Lack of concentration might indicate a child is thick (not a crime last time I checked), has a learning problem or is in fact an unusually bright child who is simply bored shitless by lessons.

Children are as individual as adults. The world would be poorer if we lost Mr. Showbiz types or Chess grandmasters or the Waqyne Rooney, Brian Cox and Frankie Boyles of the next generation to the desire of bureucrats to creat a race of identical beings and the willingness of science to assist in achieving that goal.

In recent years we have heard of plans to put anti depressants and cholesterol lowering drugs in drinking water, to make certain vaccines compulsory, to withdraw health care from people suspected of not eating healthily, smoking, using recreational drugs or drinking more than the recommended intake of alcohol.

All this interference with our ability to make choices from free will is justied by the claim it is for our own good. But can the powers that be vaccinate us against old age, can they produce selective drugs that target only those who need them (SSRI anti depressants can have a very detrimental effect on people who are not suffering from depression and low cholesterol can be as dangeous as high)

We must make a stand against this creeping Naziism now. We must halt the advance of bureaucratic authoritarianism.

University Bosses Become Fat Cats As Student Fees Rise

The pay packets of Britains university heads rocketed by as much as a fifth last year, just as institutions lobbied for a huge hike in student tuition fees. More than 950 university staff, including all vice-chancellors, were paid more than the Prime Minister an eight per cent increase on the year before.

One senior administrator at Oxford was given a salary of almost 600,000, thought to be the highest-paid university post in the country. Last night, the disclosure prompted claims that universities were showing an arrogant disregard for public opinion. It comes just weeks after ministers backed plans to triple the cap on student tuition fees from just over ... read full story

University Bosses Become Fat Cats As Student Fees Rise

Xavier Conolly comments: I lecture at degree level in a college that offers degree studies by distance learning and can only say that over the years since I left my first career as an engineer in the private sector I have watched the university system turned into a job creation scheme for people who could not hack it in industry.

Empire building in higher education is rife as is nest feathering and now in the wake of student riots as left wing malcontents tried to use the proposed increase in tuition fees as a means of destabilising the coalition government, we see the real culprits were not the Conservative and Liberal Democrat ministers but the greedy, self serving university administrators who lobbied for the increase.

Once upon a time, as all good fairy tales begin, higher education was a higher plane of existence. Now, thanks more to Labour policies over the past thirteen years and the senseless obsession with targets, statistics and league tables, the folly of making universities run themselves as businesses has caused the adoption of attitudes we associate with capitalism red in tooth and claw to infiltrate the academic world.

It seems that education will in future take second place to the ambitions of managers. Academics these days are overwhelmingly left wing, deficit loving, public sector expanding, new world orderists. Let's hope the voters catch on to who was really responsible for the need to increase tuition fees. It was not the coalition though we will have much to blame them for by the time we next elect a government. In this case however the culprits are Labour and the Academics.

Killing History.The government constantly whines that not enough pulips in their later school years take up sciences. The government itself however is pushing history off the curriculum.

Wealthy Nation Lifestyle Links To UK's High Cancer Rates

by Ed Butt

Women in Britain are more likely to be be diagnosed with breast cancer than those in most other developed countries because of their unhealthy lifestyles, according to a new study.

Analysis of data collected by the respected World Health Organisation shows Britain has higher rates of the potentially fatal disease than the USA, Australia, Germany and Spain. In only 10 of the 50 countries assessed by the researchers do women have a higher chance of being diagnosed with breast cancer than those in the UK.

Read full story: Lifestyle Links To UK's High Cancer Rates

Commenting on the new study Professor Martin Wiseman, medical and scientific adviser for the World Cancer Research Fund, said: We know that people in high-income countries are more likely to be overweight, to drink a lot of alcohol and to be inactive. When you look at the list, it is clear that the countries that do worse for these factors tend to be nearer the top."

High incidence of certain cancers in the UK and other high-income countries are not inevitable and lifestyle changes can make a real difference to peoples risk, the study suggests.

Sarah Woolnough, Cancer Research UKs director of policy, said: We do know that up to half of all cancers could be prevented by changes to lifestyle such as giving up smoking, keeping a healthy weight and cutting down on alcohol. People can also reduce their risk by eating a healthy balanced diet that is high in fibre, fruit and vegetables and low in red and processed meat.

All these things, along with taking regular exercise and avoiding sunburn, can reduce the risk of developing cancer.

While any attempt to find ways of reducing suffering is laudable we see once again here how health care has been turned into an industry. The Pharmaceutical companies that profit from the drugs that cure diseases or alleviate symptoms either own or are owned by the chemical companies that profit from making food additives, fertilizers and industrial chemicals which are known to be cancer causing agents but which find their way into our bodies by design or by chance.

That is ignored however and the blame for the incidence in cancers is put on us, the ordinary people and our degenerate lifestyles. We drink too much, do not eat enough fruit and vegetables, we are idle and use various recreational drugs. And when we are warned of yet another pandemic we refuse to get vaccinated (this might of course be because we ignored the previous pandemic warnings and were all killed by AIDS, Mad Cow Disease, MRSA, Bird Flu, fish flu, wombat flu etc.)

Well we know that when it became obvious the Swine Flu pandemic was not happening the World Health Organisation changed the definition of pandemic from "In many nations millions will be seriously ill and hundreds of thousands will die," to "In some obscure and sparsely populated third world country a few people will feel a bit poorly.

I've been wondering however, if three cases of Swine Flu constitutes an pandemic why is there no talk of a cancer pandemic caused by man made chemicals in our bodies.

Could it be the agenda of certain vested interests contains a plan to spread enough fear and panic that we will all easily persuaded to swallow enough of the shite they want to put in our bodies to ensure we are dead before we reach seventy?

After all one of the problems The New World Order fears most is the exponential growth of the proportion of old people in the population and the associated dementia time bomb. The cost of providing for the old when more than half the population are past retirement age and the added cost of one on one care for those no longer able to look after themselves turns all the economic forecasts inside out.

GM Food Needed To Avert World Food Crisis

by Ian R. Thorpe

The GM Foods Nazis are revving up for a good whine again. Professor Sir John Beddington said there was no scientific qick fix to the ''enormously serious'' problem of producing enough fod to feed the world's rapidly growing population in the future as we face problems such as climate change, population growth and energy shortages.

He told BBC Breakfast News: ''If there are genetically modified (GM) organisms that actually solve problems that we can't solve in other ways, and are shown to be safe from a human health point of view, and safe from an environmental point of view, and they can solve problems we can't solve otherwise, then we should use them. 'The sort of problems I am thinking of are new diseases which are likely to come with climate change, problems to do with drought, problems to do with the salination of ground, we need organisms that actually address that.''

Sir John was referring to the publication of a Government-commissioned report warning that massive co-ordinated action is needed to avert global hunger on a huge scale in the future.

Factors such as a rapidly growing populations in developing nations, climate chaos, depletion of ground water and energy reserves will all put even greater pressure on food production, the report will warn.

The Truth Is Not Out There
by Xavier Connolly

There is no hope of finding alien life in space because conditions on all other planets are too hostile, a leading astronomer has claimed. This goes against recent, almost hysterical claims from research grant phishing astrophysicists who claim the 'photographs of neighbouring galaxies' (in fact CGI images constructed from measurements of radiation coming in from certain parts of outer space) have 'proved' 'the truth is out there' and there could be many planets capable of supporting life in the closest galaxy alone. This closes galaxy, the Andromeda galaxy, is two and a half million light years away which means light emitted from there now will not be seen on earth for two and a half million years.

Light travels at an estimated 186,000 miles per second, about 25,000 times faster than the fastest space vehicle humans have so far made. So if we set off now, with current technology we would reach the Andromeda galaxy in 67.5 million years time. I know life expectancy is increasing but not that much.

Howard Smith, a senior astrophysicist at Harvard, made the claim that we are alone in the universe after an analysis of the 500 planets discovered so far showed all were hostile to life.

Dr Smith said the extreme conditions found so far on planets discovered outside out Solar System are likely to be the norm, and that the hospitable conditions on Earth could be unique. We have found that most other planets and solar systems are wildly different from our own. They are very hostile to life as we know it, he said.

He pointed to stars such as HD10180, which sparked great excitement when it was found to be orbiter by a planet of similar size and appearance to Earth. But the similarities turned out to be superficial. The planet lies less than two million miles from its sun, meaning it is roasting hot, stripped of its atmosphere and blasted by radiation.

Now this is a big assumption. The Universe is claimed to consist of approximately 100 million galaxies each containing a hundred billion stars. Don't ask me who counted, but maybe we should put that person on our first intergalactic space probe as they would have to have cracked the immortality thing. So Dr. Smith is basing his calculation on a tiny sample of stars that have orbiting planets.

There are many sciencyheads (people who are so addicted to science their brains are addled by the obsession.) Science is their religion and they are determined to suppress the questioning of people still enough in possession of our mental faculties to be healthily sceptical of anyone who tries to win their agruement by the appeal to a higher authority; "This is Science, no intelligent person would question it."

As such a sceptic, and a horse racing enthusiast I have to say that having analysed the form scientifically my opinion is to give these 'scientists the kind of research funding they are asking for in the hope of seeing a return would be like betting one's life savings on a three legged horse in the Derby.

UK Economy Shrinks - Double Dip Recession?
John de Roe comments:
The Daily Stirrer has commented on the inflationary pressures building in the economy, the stagnant unemployment figures and rising food and fuel prices. It is unbelievable that the economists at The Bank of England and The Treasury could have been so optimistic about recovery, even more unbelieveable that interest rates could have beek kept so insanely low for so long when the cheap money was obviously not filtering through to the small businesses that needed it.

That the economy should be sliping back towards recession should surprise nobody except the incompetents who are in charge of the economy.

The Guardian: Government On Course To Meet Borrowing Target

Call For Interest Rate Rise The Bank of England is at risk of losing its credibility over inflation, one of its senior policy-makers has warned, in a speech which flagged up the division within the central bank over climbing prices.

GM Frankenfoods versus Thomas Malthus.

Yesterday we commented GM Food Needed To Avert World Food Crisis
The GM Foods Nazis are revving up for a good whine again. Professor Sir John Beddington said there was no scientific quick fix to the ''enormously serious'' problem of producing enough fod to feed the world's rapidly growing population in the future as we face problems such as climate change, population growth and energy shortages. He told BBC Breakfast News: ''If there are genetically modified (GM) organisms that actually ...

Daily Telegraph science writer and self confessed nerd writes on Beddington:

Its nice to see two classic scientific scare stories facing off. Weve read a lot about both over the years, and both have been the subject of a lot of media-led panic, and now theyre being set against each other in a battle to the death. Its a bit like Alien vs Predator, except its real life. Frankenfoods vs Thomas Malthus.

Yes, Professor Sir John Beddington, the chief science adviser to the government, has suggested that genetically modified (GM) crops are our best hope to keep the growing population of the world fed. In 20 years time, the world population is going to be sky high, demand for food, demand for water, demand for energy, is going to be way up there, he told the BBC.

The population of Africa is scheduled to double over the next 20 years. We need to be thinking about making agriculture more effective, dealing with the problems of water, dealing with the problem of energy.

Theres no one simple solution. GM may be the answer for certain problems.

People have been predicting the worlds population outrunning our ability [ .read full story]

In reply to Chivers usual "Science Is The Messiah" sermon The Daily Stirrer's Ian R Thorpe comments:
I wish you 'science' fanatics would rid yourself of the delusion that science has a magic wand.

The face off with GM foods is often between yield and durability. You seldom get higher yield and better resistance to drought and disease from one process. In fact achieving one often comes at the expense of another.

GM crops are still mostly water but also need nutrients. More of the crop means more water and more nutrients (fertilizer) are needed to make more vegetable matter.

Reserves of ground water are depleting rapidly, overuse of chemical fertilizers are blamed for polluting those water reserves in many places.

As GB Shaw said, "Science is always wrong, for every problem it solves it creates two.

So to rephrase your question (equally sensationally) to readers, "Would you rather starve or die of thirst?"

Bank Of England Warns Living Standards Will Fall Dramatically

Households face the most dramatic squeeze in living standards since the 1920s, the Governor of the Bank of England warned, as he reacted to the shock disclosure that the economy was shrinking again.

Families will see their disposable income eaten up as they pay the inevitable price for the financial crisis, Mervyn King warned.

With wages failing to keep pace with rising inflation, workers take- home pay will end the year worth the same as in 2005 the most prolonged fall in living standards for more than 80 years, he claimed.

Mr King issued the warning in a speech in Newcastle upon Tyne after official figures showed that gross domestic product fell by 0.5 per cent during the final three months last year. The Government blamed the unexpected reduction ...

Britain Still Vulnerable To Double Dip Recession
Comment by Ian R Thorpe:
The news today that UK economic performance is slipping back into recesssion comes as no surprise. In fact we have never been out of recession since 2008, even if the official inflation figures were anywhere near correct and in spite of the $billions pumped into the banking system by Gordon Brown the UK economy has not grown at a higher rate than inflation during any accounting period.

In effect this means the economy is shrinking in real terms, a view that will be understood by most householders as they plan their monthly budget.

At the same time we are still borrowing money each month to finance the burgeoning deficit and yet still lending at insanely low interest rates to the banks so they can buy the government bonds that will cripple any infant recovery with interest payments.

Talk of a dounle dip recession is misleading. We are still in the first dip.

George Osborne and Ed Balls Square Up On The Economy

Pundits on the left have been crowing that Labour's new shadow chancellor Ed Balls will make mincemeat of Coalition chancellor George Osborne. Such blind confidence is typical of the left. They have forgotten what the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats have not, that Ed Balls as much as Gordon Brown was the archiect of Labour's disastrous financial policies that led to the collapse of the British economy.

Trouble Escalates In Egypt

The Guardian: Egypts Biggest Protests Yet
The DAily Telegraph: Thousands Of Protesters On Cairo Streets
At the time Barack Obama made one of his famous speeches in Cairo his suppoters hailed it as a great move towards building bridges between the west and the Islamic world. A couple of years later Palestine is still on the verge of meltdown, Iraq is frangmenting into ethnic and sectarian microstates, Tunisia is in turmoil and Egypt is trying to overthrow its undemocratic remine.

The addle brained stoners who cling to the belief that Barack Hussein Obama (real name Barry Soetoro) can walk on water are praising him for 'inpiring the oppressed people of the Islamic nations to rise up and throw off the yoke of tryanny.' It is a phrase so cliched and meaningless it could have been voined by Bammy himself except that he never has written anything by himself. Reading, rather poorly it must be said, from an autocue, is all he does.

What the priests and followers of The Cult Of The Obamessiah are not mentioning is that in all these Obama inspired rebellions against tyrants who are usually quite well disposed towards the west, the alternative government that are emerging are Islamic fundamentalists who are hostile to western culture and business and intent on setting up Islamist Theocracies.

It loks like Barry has succeeded where George W Bush failed by kicking off Wold War 3.

Good work Barry, keep it up.

Egyptian authorities have held Mohamed ElBaradei, the Nobel peace laureate leading protests against President Hosni Mubarak's authoritarian regime.

Mr ElBaradei was among thousands of protesters who have poured on to the streets of Egypt's towns and cities at the end of noon prayers on Friday, in are expected to be the biggest demonstrations yet in the attempted revolution against Mr Mubarak

Egypt's authorities responded to the growing threat to the regime by shutting down access to the internet and launching a fresh wave of arrests.

Their focus this time was the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt's largest opposition group, after it threw its support behind ...

Fears Over Teacher Shortages
by Xavier Connolly

Figures from the Department of Education show the number of graduates applying for secondary teacher training courses strting in September is 9.3 per cent lower than at the same time lasy year.

To make the situation worse teacher training in certain key subjects is struggling even more to attact new career entrants. Applications for places on Mathematics teaching courses are down by 14 per cent, while demand for science has dropped by 18 per cent.

Other subjects are experiencing an even more more dramatic decline, with applications to teach design and technology down by 38 per cent. Demand for business studies courses has dropped by 26 per cent.

Officials in the Education department fear the slump numbers of people interested in teaching as a career could leave schools with a shortage of teachers in some subjects forcing them to put classes in the hands of staff lacking in expertise.

The Daily Stirrer says if the government is serious about reversing this decline they must first get Politically Correct thinking out of the classroom and then be brave enough to give teachers back the authority to enforce disciplie in classes.

Ed Butt comments:

Although this situation is very dangerous for world peace and economic stability it is quite amusing to watch addle brained lefties in Britain and America cheering the Arabs for throwing off the yoke of authoritarian tyranny and moving towards Obama style, New Labour style 'participative democracy' (i.e. the government tells you what to do and you participate through your unquestioning obedience.

Do these ideologically brainwashed fools not realise the only sufficiently well organised group capable of taking part in free elections in Egypt is the Islamic Brotherhood. Their vision for Egypt's political future is as an Islamic theocracy like the one which emerged in Iran after the Americans had stirred up a revolution.

Make no mistake, this nastiness on the Nile is Barack Obama's baby. The jug eared streak of piss who imagines himself President of The Entire Universe And Everything Else Besides made a much hailed but very ill advised speech in Cairo which sent the message to dissidents and malcontents in the middle east that if they rebelled America would support them. Now the imbecile President may well be a closet Muslim, a closet gay and a closet British citizen according to some of his critics but he certainly is, as has ben demonstrated, a terrorist loving revolution loving, Western civilisation hating Trotskyite.

And like most Trots, Obama is an arrested adolescent. He loves the excitement of revolution just as he loves signing new, unpopular acts of Congress into law. But he loathes and fears responsibility and so dithers and tries to blame everyone else when he is called upon to show leadership.

That is why the Egyptian crisis can only end badly for the west. The Arabs know Obama will not act. Russia and China, both busy extending their influence in Africa know Obama will cave in as soon as they stand up to him. One thing we have to acknowledge about George W. Bush is the God bothering, trigger happy son of a bitch would have protected western interests even if he had to blow up the whole middle east to do so.

Obama will call for talks. And while he is talking the wests competitors will be shafting him.

Researchers Discover Protien Protacts Against Prostate Cancer

by Xavier Connolly

We have always been pretty sceptical about 'science', particulary the kind that substitutes theory, speculation and mathematical modelling for observation and demonstrable results. For this position we have often been criticised, refered to as 'young earth creationists' (we are all atheists actually) and told that as we are not scientists we cannot understand science.

The first thing that made us suspicious of the people who talk about 'science' is the way they overuse the word, just as fundamentalist Christians say Jesus far more thn they need to. Yes, for many people science has become a religion.

That is not to say however that there is no longer any good work being done by researchers. Here's a story that shows the best advances are bing made by people using a more traditional approach to their research.

Protien that protacts against prostate cancer
The Imperial College London team found that a protein called FUS inhibits the growth of prostate cancer cells in the laboratory. Patients with higher FUS levels also tended to live longer and have less aggressive cancers, they discovered. Prostate cancer kills 10,000 men in Britain a year. Current hormonal therapies only work for a limited time while chemotherapy is often ...

Now that's the kind of science we like. Simple, straightforward and offering tangible benefits rather than pie in the sky science fiction stuff.

Would You Eat Meat Grown From Grey Goo?

by Ian R. Thorpe

And folowing that example (above) of good science here's an example of the science we at the Daily Stirrer do not like.

(Reuters) In a small laboratory on an upper floor of the basic science building at the Medical University of South Carolina, Vladimir Mironov, M.D., Ph.D., has been working for a decade to grow meat.A developmental biologist and tissue engineer, Dr. Mironov, 56, is one of only a few scientists worldwide involved in bioengineering "cultured" meat.
It's a product he believes could help solve future global food crises resulting from shrinking amounts of land available for growing meat the old-fashioned way ... on the hoof. Growth of "in-vitro" or cultured meat is also under way in ...
Read all:American Scientist Reveals Lab Grown Meat

What's wrong with this race to grow meat in laboratories is it meets no human need but only serves corporate and political greed. When the scientists talk of harm done to the environment by the traditional 'on the hoof' method of growing high protein, high energy food (meat) they use the usual scientific trick of reductionism. They only look at one tiny aspect of the problem.

We know that beef cattle are destructive grazers and pasture once grazed by domestic cattle takes a long time to recover. We know that deforestation carried out to provide extra grazing land so that Big AgriBiz can meet the growing demand for meat harms the environment.

What we are not told is what would the carbon footprint be for the huge, half acre sheds stacked with high tech machinery that would be needed to create edible food products from grey goo.

What we are not told is why alternative meat supplies are not being developed from animals that do not need such rich pasture and are not such destructive grazers. The North American Bison is equipped by evolution to do well on the poor, fibrous grasses of central uplands in the USA and Canada. Reindeer (Caribou) give us delicious meats and are equipped by evolution to thrive in the arctic conditions of northern Canada and Alaska, Siberia and northern Scandinavia. African Wldebeeste are ideally suited to the harsh environments of that continent, so much so they have to be culled. Again they are a good food source. These vast, unused land areas could be put to good use and thousands of jobs created for agricultural workers instead of a handful of jobs for white coated pointy heads to supervise armies of machines.

There is no doubt that the laboratory grown meat would be perfectly wholesome and fit for human consumption. The question mark that hangs over projects like this belongs behind the great question Cui Bono? Who benefits?

We must start putting the needs of humanity ahead of the need for power and control of corporations and the craving for fame and admiration of scientists. There are a million better, cheaper ways of solving this problem than by growing our food in giant petri dishes in industrial big shed laboratories. So the whole project is another costly, pointless exercise in control freakery.

Just as the seasons and the phases of the zodiac go in cycles, like the tides and the cycle of renewal, so the attempts to suppress scientific debate about ways in which scientists attempts to control nature are destroying the environment follow on in a seemingly unchangeable order. At this time of year it is bee comony collapse, next it will be extreme weather events

Science for Sale, Autism, VCaccines And Government Intervention
The propaganda aimed at convincing us medical science can provide a vaccine to immunise us against death is not about the greatest good of the greatest number, it is about corporate profit and political power. But not all scientists can bee bought. Here is one vaccine specialist who won his personal battle, the wider war goes on.

Meteorologists Begin To Admit To Climate Engineering
The freethinkers and Libertarians of New Media have been questioning the pseudoscientific certainties of the global warming lobby for a long time. During that often acrimonious process (because the Global Warming lobby are ever bit as organised and as driven by blind hatred of those who question them as the Bearded Queens In Bridal Gowns lobby) and most of us have been accused of infanticide, genocide and worse. At last the respectable climate scientists (the ones who didn't sell their arse for the corporate dollar) are speaking, and the media are listening.

Feeling Sorry For Labour Supporters After ealing Comedy Party Political Broadcast - There's A First
A lot of people, on hearing that I don't like the Conservative are quite shocked to learn that I despise The Labour Party even more. Are we really turning into a nation of Sheeple. The only reason I have been writing blog posts supporting UKIP is because they offer the only chance of breaking the grip of the different-in-name-only parties and returning britain to Parliamentary Democracy

Taxes Will Rise If Government Do Not Raid Bank Accounts Taxes will have to rise unless officials are given new powers to raid people’s bank accounts, David Cameron has said.
The Treasury select committee warned that allowing HM Revenue and Customs to remove cash from bank accounts without court orders is “very concerning” because of its history of mistakes.
The committee said that taxpayers could suffer “serious detriment” if officials are able, either by mistake or through an “abuse” of power, to take money from people who have done no wrong.

Voter Backlash against Media UKIP Smears Is Good For Democracy
Pontificating celebrities and media luvvies, don't you hate them. What gives these mostly has been the idea that their opinion is worth more than the opinion of everyman and woman. What makes these people who might have been talented before theiy disapeared up their own arses (yes I'm talking about you Eddie Izzard, Lenny Henry, Ben Elton, J K Rowling, just about every Mocker on Mock The Week. Even if you were still funny guys, nobody gives a fuck what you think about politics.

Nonconformity and Freethinking Now Considered Mental Illnesses
We've been here before of course, shrinks and head quacks are now trying to say everything you do can be interpreted as a sign of mental illness. Its starange but the sickets, most dysfunctional people I've met have been psychatrists and psychologists - perhaps they want to make the rest of us as crazy as they are

Pfizer Preadatory Capitalism: Posh Boy Cameron Can't Explain What He Doesn't Understand The hostile (we call it predatory) bid by big Pharma asset stripper Pfizer for UK based drug and phramaceutical company Astra Zeneca is being defended by some anything-but-free market enthusiasts in the political arena as capitalism at work. But Pfizer are not free market capitalists, they are corporatists and as ove of the leading corporatists, David Rockefeller once said, "Competition is sin".

European Elections: you can vote UKIP or you can vote Nazi, simples
People keep telling me UKIP are racist but there is nothing racist about wanting to see immigration conrols enforced properly, people say that UKIP have no policies, but the only policy the other three parties have is to smear UKIP as racist. Here's the choice, the EU is a bureaucratic dictatorship, you either vote UKIP or you vote Nazi. Simples

Education, Education, Education And To Hell With The Kids

Posh Boy Can't Explain What He Doesn't Understand
Conservative globalists are screaming that David Cameron must explain why the takeover of British based pharmaceutical corporation Astra Zeneca by American asset strippers and patent thieves Pfizer is a good thing and will benefit the British economy. There is no chance of Dave succeeding ...

You can vote UKIP or you can vote Nazi, simples
I do wish people at this site would either wake up to what is going on in Europe or just acknowledge they are politically illiterate STF up about UKIP. It seems we are importing yet another unfortunate trait from American and that the only positions people can occupy on any issue are the extremes. Thus because I say "Vote UKIP and get us out of the Euroreich" I am taken for ...

Labour, the (very rich, elitist) People's party plans to ban your beer and pies
Are Labour still the peoples party or have they forgotten their core voters and working class roots and sold out to the metrpolitan left-wing intellectual media mafia. After the latest P R faux pas, few voters over 40 will be able to asociate the people's party with cloth caps and ciggies. Ed Miliband's proposed crackdown on tobbacco, alcohol and 'unhealthy eating' could well be the policy that loses the election.

Is Europe Waking Up To The Threat Of Globalism Posed by Secret Trade Treaties
The U.S. is attempting to give multinational corporations a status that has hitherto been reserved to sovereign nations. According to documents recently leaked from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations, the Obama administration wants corporations to be able to challenge the laws and regulations of elected governmets, and bring the dispute to a privately-run international court. Well we did try to warn you.

Government's Illegal Spying on Citizens is Turning Democratic Nations Into Totalitarian States
As public outrage grows the politicians show how out of touch with reality they are by trying to use ever more intrusive surveillance and draconian sanctions on those who object to completely intimidate the population. Do the idiots know no history or have they been so barinwashed by academics that they really feel media lies can rewrite the past. If so, they are courting catastrophic social breakdown

Rotherham - Bad New For The Nation But It Gets Better And Better For The Kippers
All week I have been seeing blogs and comments written by lefties proclaiming idiotically that Douglas Carswell's defection to UKIP was the beginning of the end, that the UKIP bubble had burst and so on. Pretty much what they were saying in the days after UKIP had trounced the mainstream parties in the European Parliament elections.

Weaponised Ebola Virus? The World Always Catches Up Eventually?
Gratifying to see the rest of the blogosphere are now asking questions like this:"What is a US Army Bio-Weapons research lab doing at the heart of Ebola outbreak"
It's a good and valid question and one Boggart Blog asked some weeks ago as the Washington / London / Brussels propaganda machine was ramping up the Ebola fear and panic to a new level.

ISIS completely fabricated enemy by US says Former CIA contractor
We were not surprised to see this news item in the feeds. When you consider the Flight MH17 False Flag, the Syria poison gas attack that was carried out by US backed terorists and which the Obama administration tried (and failed) to blame on Assad, the US / EU engineered coup in Ukraine that overthrew a democractivally elected government and replaced it with a gang of neo Nazi thugs ...

Scandal hit Rotherham ‘deleted abuse files’
In a move that puts them among the contenders for lying, self serving shits of the decade, but still in a league of their own un terms of complete and utter shittiness, it has emerged that the scum sucking scab lice of Rotherham Council's controlling Labour group and the public servants they employed had deleted files in order to cover up their complicity in the blatant and systematic child abuse perpetrated under the noses of council officials.

Dutch Intellectuals Apologise to Putin for Lies on MH17, Syria, Ukraine
When someone waves his academic qualifications at me and expects me to give a damn, it pisses me off. Since the blog started it has worked on the principle that everybody is entitled to their opinion and everybody's opinion is worth equal respect.

Centralized power - the worst of all possible worlds
The centralization of power over the past few decades in nations of the developed world has led to the evolution of a sociopathic managerial class formed mainly from the old petite bourgoisie who have now gravitted to public sector careers where their delusions of social status and the unaccountability of office lead them to abuse such power as they have.

The Perils Of Centralized Power
We show how the increasing centralization of power has led to the public becoming disenfranchised and feelinf unable to control their own lives. it has also facilitated the growth of a culture of corruption and cover up in public life, the justice system, education, the churches and other areas where the elite have become remote and out of touch with the citizens they serve.

IMF Chief Legarde Arrested? It's DSKja vu All Over Again.
Like her predecessor in the job, Domique Strauss - Khan, IMF Chief Christine Legarde feaces prosecution for criminality and is likely to be forced out of the job. Yet the dodgy episodes in Legarde's past were well known before she was appointed head of the IMF. So who put the kinfe in and why?

The science of saturated fat: A big fat surprise about nutrition?
After years of being told saturated fat is a killer and we should avoid it in favour of Big Food products that are the nearest modern chemistry can get to packaging arterial plaque, yet another scientific meta analysis shows the sat fat scare was based of fraudulent science and there is no evidence your steak is harming you.

Political Europe Suppressed Under Washington´s Thumb Is Waking Up
In the aftermath of the downing of the Malaysian airliner in Ukraine, the Western media followed Washington’s lead and manipulated reports in order to make Europeans believe that Russia and Russian-supported separatists in eastern Ukraine were responsible for downing the airliner. In Germany, the press was an extension of Washington’s propaganda machine despite the lack of evidence from both Washington and Kiev to support their irresponsible claims.

CDC Whistleblower Links MMR Vaccine to Autism
One day the truth will be revealed about the MMR vaccine and its alleged link to autism as well as a host of other health problems in young children. One question damns the case in favour of MMR as propaganda. If it is as important as health authorities say to vaccinate children against MMR, why insist on the triple vaccine when there was never a problem with a separate measles vaccine? Could Corporate Profits have something to do with it?

Microsoft Admits Banking $92 Billion Offshore to Avoid Paying $29 Billion in U.S. Taxes
No wonder the control freak and man who made 'not fit for purpose' acceptable quality for sale, Bill Gates can afford to be a philanthropist.

UK Must Work With Assad To Combat ISIS? Laugh, I Nearly Shat
When Obama first called for military intervention in Syria, Cameron and Hollande were all for it and only public opinion in the west and Russian / Chinese Intransigence in the UN Security Council averted full scale war.

The Hate And Prejudice The Bourgois Left Find Acceptable
The neo - fascist left are quick to jump on any of the forbidden pejudices, racism, sexism, homophobia, islamophobia and so on. But as we have seen, they find pejudice and hated againt Christians and white Europeans quite acceptable. The bourgeois metropitan set might think that is acceptable but where I come from it's called hypocrisy.

What Would The Future Look Like Without The Propaganda Happy Pills The arrogance, hubris and contempt for morality displayed by our ruling classes is gobsmacking. Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrat politicians seem to think they are untouchable, above the norms and ethics that apply to ordinary mortals and that they are able to rewrite the laws of nature on a whim. We are not just talking about politicians here, but bankers and business leaders, the legal, medical and education professions, public servants, academics and senior police officers.

Funny Things Happen In Ukraine - The Destriction Of The Convoy That Didn't Exist
The Ukraine Government claimed they had destroyed a Russian convoy that entered their territory. East Ukrainian rebels denounced it as an atrocity. Two British journalists working near the Russia / Ukrain border said they had witnessed the carnage. Russia said there had been no convoy. Independent sources said satellite pictures showed no evidence of wreckage. WTF was that all about?

Ebola and the Absent “Humanitarians”
When the FUKUS axis leaders, France, United Kingdom and the Unites States of America were calling for approval to intervene in Libya, Yemen, Syria and Ukraine, they justified their lust for war by claiming that bombing the crap out of those counties was necessary on humanitarian grounds. And the member of the FUKUS axis and their allies spent billions of $£€ on humanitarian bombs that wreaked hiumanitarian havoc among the innocent poor and middle class citizens of those nations. Now they have work out their 'The Jihad Is Coming' scare but have a new weapon Ebola ...

US TV news: Zero evidence to prove MH17 shot down by pro Russian rebels

Russia to request MH17 probe report This might throw a spanner in the works of the cosy carve up between the USA, Britain, The Netherlands and Ukraine over analysis of the evidence from inquiries into the downing of malaysia airlines Flight MH17.
Russia will request an official report in relation to progress of an investigation into the crash of a Malaysian passenger plane in eastern Ukraine.
"We will ask for a briefing by the UN Secretariat on the progress of the implementation of Resolution 2166," Russia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin told reporters at the UN headquarters in New York on Monday.

New malaria vaccine doesn’t work most of the time, but manufacturer says it’s good enough to sell
Once again we turn our attention to vaccines and the criminality of the drug companies that manufacture and sell them:
There's a good chance that the vast majority of people who receive it won't derive any benefits whatsoever. But that isn't stopping British drug giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) from seeking regulatory approval for a new vaccine for malaria, known as RTS,S, that a recent study determined is only about 30 percent effective at preventing severe cases of the disease, which has no recognized cure.

Germany Is Building a European Army Before Your Eyes
The Dutch army is made up of three brigades, plus support staff and Special Forces. On June 12, one of those brigades, the 11th Airmobile, officially joined the German army.

Islamic State Threatens UK Says Cameron. Have We Heard Anything Similar Before

Huge North Sea oil find enough to produce for over thirty five years. Media silence

First borken by the Blogosphere, this story which should be the biggest in British news media by now, is just being picked up by the mainstream. When will some newspaper or TV news editor be brave enough to run it we wonder? The story:

An oil field, described as one of the biggest untapped resources in the North Sea, is set to produce oil until 2050, it has emerged.

New GMO Approval Will Go Ahead Despite Public Outcry.

Corporate monopoly men and control freak politicians, aided by their Dr. Death scientists are determined to force genetically modified (GM) foods on an very sceptical public. If there was any truth in the claims that GM crops can feed the world and are safe, the public would not be sceptical, but the genetically engineered organisms now being developed are modified to be resistant to highly toxic chemicals to which humans and animals have no resistance.

Is It Lack Of Diversity That Makes Lefties Stupid?
Quite a while ago now I wrote a post titled "Is It Lack Of Diversity That Drives Left wing Hate?" It contained these lines: There's an old joke; Q: "Why do teenagers only listen to other teenagers?" A: "Because they're stupid." - Q: "Why are teenagers stupid?" A: Because they only listen to other teenagers." Substitute leftie, liberal, radical or progressive for teenager and that just about sums up the political 'left'

"Anti-Putin" Alliance Fraying: Germany, Slovakia, Greece, Czech Republic Urge End To Russian Sanctions
When I posted a blog yesterday, Game and set to Putin (it wasn't quite match) which commented on how while Russia has shrugged off the American and EU sanctions, European farmers were being hit hard by Russia's retaliatory ban on foodstuff from the EU, Mike St. Mark replied that while the Russian leader was running rings round the USA, EU and Ukraine, he didn't think it was quite game and set at that point. It is now ...

The U.S. is bombing Iraq isn’t for humanitarian reasons
The involvement of Britain’s Royal Air Force in delivering humanitarian aid in Iraq t has triggered speculations that the UK, may join the US in launching targeted air strikes against the Islamic State. The RAF Tornados deployed Tornado are two seat fighter planes capable of low level s supersonic flight but not idea for delivering large payloads of bagged rice or bottled water. They could be useful for dropping medicines however. Though British military leaders were insistent that the aircraft would only be used in Iraq as part of humanitarian operations, the choice of Tornados ... More

Will new clean energy process make coal the fuel of the future
Coal, you exclaim, throwing up your hands in horror, the stuff that covered buildings of industrial towns in black soot, the stuff that choked miners lungs and sent millions of people to early graves? Coal the filthiest fuel ever? How can you say it is clean? Well a new technology recently announced might change your mind. Unless you are a windmill worshipping Warmageddonist of course.

Such Nice People Live On The Left Of The Political Spectrum
Left wing politics, once the politics of freedom, individualism and self - determination has increasingly over the past few decades become the politics of hate, envy, bitterness, hypocrisy and authoritarianism. Left wing politics has now developed a level of intolerance for those who challenge its idiotic assumptions or moral superiority, it appears to be charging headlong towards fascism.

Independent Scientists Demolish The Lies About GMOs And The Safety Of Glyphosate
The GMO battle goes on, one one side the corporate funded, government backed, global government supporting science lobby, on the other the part of the biological research community that still believes in hostesty, integrity and objectivity. This article reports a conference at which independent scientists (i.e. those not funded by biotech corporations) expose the lies and corruption behind claims that GM crops are safe. Say no to GMO.

Britain’s maths policy simply doesn’t add up - but neither does overestimating the importance of maths.
As an engineer, mathematics has been an important part of my career but I have always been aware that it is a tool. In the past there have been many attempts to develop a 'philosophy of everything' base on mathematical speculations that took maths into areas it was never designed to go, areas of human thought and enquiry that rightly belong to philosophers. This talk of mathematicians being creative jarrs with me somewhat, inventors, engineers, designers are creative. Mathematics is just part of our tool kit.

Genetically Modified Truth? How Corpoate Money Corrupted Science.
Little Nicky is sceptical about many things, it's in my job description. Incidentally, for the benefit of those over qualified, under educated idiots who think I'm right wing extremist, it is a basic tenet of Liberal philosophy that we all have a duty to question that which is presented as an established truth.

How Fundamentalists Of Materialism Hijacked Science.
Yet again we find ourselves making a stand against the fascism of mainstream science. The nerds are getting stroppy and trying to suppress ideas they don't like again (Nobody expects The Science Inquisition) Thing is of course, if their ideas were half as good as they claim, the alternative being proposed would not look so convincing.

Why Does The US Government Hold A Patent On The Ebola Virus? Just Askin'
The outbreak of Ebola fever in west Africa has been making headlines since January this year, but as usual we are only being told half the story by mainstream media. It took a lot of digging by myself and colleagues in the blogosphere to dig up this pile of dirt which suggests the "new strain" of Ebola faver that has killed far more people than previous outbreaks may have resulted from attempts to weaponise the virus. And guess which national government is allegedly responsible.

Secrets And Lies And Oil In Scottish Referendum Cover Up
As the referendum in which Scotland will vote for or against independence from the United Kingdom approaches rumours are rife that news of a massive oil find near the shetanad Isles is being suppressed. Such news would guarentee scotland;s financial stability and could be a game changer in the unpredictable vote. But the UK government will not want to let that oil slip between their fingers.

Astrophysicist Declares GMOs Safe - Is Demolished By A Biologist.
The GMO battle goes on, one one side the corporate funded, government backed, global government supporting science lobby, on the other the part of the biological research community that still believes in hostesty, integrity and objectivity, supported by the masses of ordinary punters who support common sense solutions and whose suspicion of big money science is based on its track record of disaster, catastrophe and unforeseen consequences. Say no to GMO.

Shock; horror. Human Barbie Doll has her own opinions
The human Barbie girl Valeria Lukyanova has become something of an online phenomenon and is regarded as a sex symbol by many young men of the kind who have more computers than friends.

Suppression Of News Used To Influence Scottish Referendum Vote?
Now, in order to avoid being accused of trying to influence the outcome of the Scottish Referendum (because I don't believe in telling the scots how to run their affairs any more than I approve of telling Arabs, Afghans and Ukrainians how their countries should be run) I offer for your consideration this news leaved via Oil and Gas People.

As Obama launches another airborne assault in Iraq, who are ISIS
I have been consistently against western (FUKUS axis) interventions in domestic politics of middle eastern states. There comes a time however when intervention is necessary. Thus we must accept the necessity of the USA's latest military adventure, the reconvening of the war in Iraq.So why have I had a change of heart at this stage?

EU Boss Argues That Their Work With Banks And Corporate Interests Should Be Concealed From The Public.
Shills for global government and corporate fascism are always quick to shout 'conspiracy theorist' when anybody questions things like the EU federalisation project, the Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the Trans Pacific Trade Partnership (TPP) The obvious response is to ask why representatives of supra national bureaucracies are so desperate to ensure progress on these peojects is shrounded in secrecy?

The Real Reason The US Is Bombing Iraq
Only a day after Obama’s announcement that he had authorized “targeted strikes” inside Iraq in order to combat the Islamic State (IS) advance, the United States has indeed followed through with their threat. At least two waves of airstrikes against a variety of targets have already taken place inside Iraq. One of the airstrikes apparently struck an IS mortar position and an IS convoy near Erbil. IS fighters had advanced to within a half hour’s distance from Erbil, the capital of Iraq’s Kurdish region.

German Handelsblatt Releases Stunning Anti-West Op-Ed, Asks If West Rabble-Rousers Are On The Payroll Of The KGB
Up until this point in the Obama Administrations attempt to recreate events leading up to World War One, Angela Merkel and German media in general, had been firmly on the side of the west when it comes to dealing with Russia, Putin and realpolitik in broader terms. That changed dramatically today when Gabor Steingart, the chief editor of Handelsblatt, Germany's leading economic newspaper, came out with a stunning op-ed, in German, English and Russian, titled simply that "The West on the wrong path"

MH17: More evidence points to Kiev / Washington False Flag
Last week Little Nicky relayed reports (yes, relayed; in spite of what some authoritarians would have you believe, I don't make this stuff up, it's all reported) accounts of two German aviation experts who testified that their examination of photographs showing wreckage from around the cockpit area of the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 shot down over Ukraine were consistent with heavy calibre machine gun fire, which suggested the plane had been shot down by ...

Scots Wha Hae When Wallace Bled - A Boggart's view of Scottish Independence.
The Scottish Independence debate has failed so far to fire passions north of the border.

Nobody in either London or Edinburgh is able to give a straight answer however. Her's our contribution ...

How Politically Correct Thinking Leads Into A Moral Maze
Being a leftie can be hard work however, with so many of the causes they must embrace being in direct opposition to other favoured causes, lefties encounter a lot of moral dilemmas. So being a believer in all -isms, the kind of idiot who equates calls for immigration controls with South African Apartheid or Stalinist genocide and is quite sure that equality means members of favoured minorities should be given me the privileged status of an elite class, can get hairy at times.

Another Obama Sponsored Genocide - not Alawi or Christians In Syria but Yazidi in Iraq.
While the west has been distracted by events in Gaza and Ukraine, and the neo - fascist 'left' have suddenly discovered the joys of anti Russianism and anti Semitism, the FUKUS axis sponsored genocidists of ISIS have discovered another inoffensive minority to exterminate now that the Syriac Christians have fled.

Neo - fascist Left's Idiotic Obsession With Racism Becoming More Insane
I don't know how many of you have noticed but the wailing and gnashing of teeth from the politically correct left over imaginary racism has become fr moire irrational and hysterical since the success of UKIP the the European Parliament elections back in May. The latest entirely innocent thing to be the target of racism accusations from the insane left is BBC Radio's sedate gardening programme Gardeners World. How have the cucumers and compost brigade upset the loony left?

Fear and Panic and Ebola Fever
The latest attempt to justify war has been the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over Ukraine allegely by pro Russia separatists with support from The Kremlin. So far the 'compelling evidence' the American government claimed to possess has not been revealed but such evidence as has been seen points to another false flag even. Remember the Swine Flu pandemic?They're doing it again with Ebola fever, ramping up the scare factor and trying to spread enough fear and panic to justify suspending democratic rule by pretending this disease could potentially kill most of us.

Afrophilia and the reality of western ambitions in Africa
One of the dogmas of this politically correct cult of knee jerking, lockstep marching, wisdom-of-the-crowd chanting flock of Sheeple is that we must love Africa. Dark skin good, pale skin bad is the mantra. That the sheeple are nothing more than gullible dupes and useful idiots to the faceless men and women who really lead us is shown by the contrast between the mass Afrophilia of the flock and the way the controllers see Africa.

FUKUS axis imposes sanctions, Russian Oligarchs Shrug
So far in the Libyan crisis, the Syria crisis, the Iraq crisis and the Ukraine crisis, Obama and the European leaders have made a lot of noise and imposed a lot of meaningless sanctions (like confiscating the bus passes of retired Russian gengsters living in the west. And the Russians have just quietly got on with doing what they were doing.

What are US biowar researchers doing in the Ebola zone?
What are US biowar researchers doing in the Ebola zone? That is a question being asked around the cyberosphere as the Ebola outbreak in Africa continues to spread and alarm grows in the western nations. The Tulane University researchers [and colleagues] in the US biowarfare research community, have been operating in West Africa for some time. What exactly have they been doing? Exactly what diagnostic tests have they been performing on citizens of Sierra Leone?

Mass Immigration Means Failing Hospitals, Schools And Overcrowded Cities
Another shock for the left as think tank Civitas reports that mass immigration causes enormous social and economic problems while the 'benefits' to society the left bang on about are very marginal. The left's real agenda of course is the genocide of the fair skinned races. As most of these stupid lefties are white Europeans or Americans this is a perfect illustation of how stupid and self important they are, How does that old joke go about turkeys voting for Christmas?

Pandemonium: UKIP Taken Over By Fiends From Hell?
UKIP are at risk of being engulfed in another "ism" scandal as Jake Baynes, prospective parliamentary candidate for Wells has resigned his candiacy and party offices, claiming the constituency party has been taken over by "Occultists"

Ukraine Government Fires Missiles At Rebel Held Targets Leaders in Washington, London, Paris and Brussels continue to pump out the propaganda against Russia as they try to provoke a war over the alleged shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 over Ukraine by separatist rebels supported by Russia. But in spite of claims by Obama and Kerry that the US have evidence that proves it was the rebels wot done it, the more evidence we see, the more likely it looks that the Ukrain government in Kiew was responsible.

This morning the US Bureau of Economic Analysis, an agency of the Commerce department revealed Q2 GDP statistics which blew made nonesense of estimates, showing year on year growth for the second quarter at 4.0%.

Why Do The 'Progressive Left' Support Those Who Use Rape As A Weapon Of War
Rape as a weapon of war and genocide is not a pleasant subject but it is one that needs to be raise, like the issue of Female Genital Mutilation. Why visit such unpleasant topics? To expose the hypocrisy of the modern political left who have more in common with Hitler's Nazis, Mussolini's Fascist or Stalin's brutal Soviet regime that the supporters of traditional left wing values of individual freedom, free speech and equality before the law.

FUKUS axis imposes sanctions, Russian Oligarchs Shrug
You have probably read a torrent of arse dribble in mainstream media about "Russia is becoming increasingly isolated" It's a meme that political leaders in the FUKUS axis, EU and NATO would like us to believe. It isn't quite the whole story however.

Sensational Break From Official Lies - German Aviation Expert Says MH17 Brought Down By Air To Air Missile
The shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over Ukraine has triggered a war of words between the USA / FUKUS axis and Russia as President Obama, without any clear evidence to support him, tried to blame Russia and use the outrage to justify a military intervention in Ukraine that would certainly start a major global conflict. So far Russia has stood its ground but refused to be provoked as evidence like that below has undermined the western narrative.

US wants WWIII because its big banks are insolvent: Henderson
An American author and columnist says the United States wants to start a third world war because most of its big banks are insolvent.
Dean Henderson with the Veterans Today made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV on Monday as he commented on recent remarks made by White House Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications Ben Rhodes who said ...

Germany Axes Canada-EU Trade Agreement, This Will End TTIP Stitch Up Too
We are winning. Well today we are at least. News broke over the weekend that Germany intends to junk the Canada Europe Trade Agreement (CETA), a template for the much bigger and therefore more threatening to freedom and democratic rule Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment partnership (TTIP). So it looks as though the shockwave of the European Parlianment elections has awoken politicians to the anger of voters throughout Europe with the dicatatorial attitude of the EU.

Who shot down MH17? Black Box Data Reveals Nothing We Did Not Know
As the political and media war over responsibility for the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 continues, here's a chance to view a report put together by the BBC Russia news channel (In Russian with English subtitles). Strangely the Beeb have taken this report offline now. Make what you will of that. The video shows the handling of the Black Box flight recorders, which

Smart Homes Reveal User Behavior, Prone to Hacks:
Our Internet-driven world filled with interconnected smart gadgets and computing applications is making us vulnerable to potentially life-changing hacks and tracking. Not only are modern cars open to being hacked, but also boats, planes, and GPS-driven weapons.

Now Things Are Starting To Make Sense
It is now known that the uprising in Ukraine early this year that saw the elected government, which was cooperating far too well with Russia for the liking of the western powers overthrown and replaced by a US and EU sponsored gaggle of gangsters, thugs and neo - fascists whose task was to

Funny How A Few Days Good Weather Brings The Warmageddonists Out
Over the past few scorching hot days I have seen several members of the alomst defunct Warmageddonist society plugging their tired, discredited old "science" and trying to claim that mathematics proves that what is observably not happening is actually happening but only scientists are clever enough to understand that ... Hmm, is that so?

Military Veterans Opinion: Probably A Bomb That Took Down MH-17!
Funny how the left present themselves as the politics of peace and unity but are all out in support of Barack Obama's latest warmongering campaign in Ukraine following the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17. I suppose the pacifists enthusiasm for World War Three proves George Orwell was right when he said War is Peace.

America's Dumbest Move Yet: Hijacking A Foreign Bank
The financial markets seem to be getting more volatile, with share prices and currency values fluctuating wildly on the slightest indication of good or bad news. But when central banks start hijacking other banks on the basis of very flimsy evidence from a pariah state, we should befinding somewhere safer for our money

UK Government Report Confirms Huge Abuse of EU Free Movement Rules
After scream of 'racists' and 'bigots' from the left when common sense users pointed out that mass immigration does not benefit the economy, nor is it fair to the people shiioped here having been promised a utopian existence only to find they are living in foul conditions, doing menial jobs, and being paid under minimum wage and exploited by unscrupulous bosses. , a report by civil servants confirms that the 'right wing extremists' was absolutely correct.

Malaysian Government and Opposition Call For MH17 Justice – Evidence Suggests Foul Play
Thanks to the sleazy political opportunism of Barack Hussein Obama and his bum boy David Cameron the tragedy of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 has been turned into a circus as the outrageous accusations (based on zero evidence, the USA told reporters to look on Facebook if they wanted proof the Ukrain pro Russia separatists did it) have spawned increasingly crazy conspiracy theories.

Poor white pupils put off school by multicultural timetable
Education, should it be about learning to read, write, spell and calculate? Or should it be about feminism, gay rights, black history and 'gender awareness' whatever that is? For many years we have had multiculturalism and politically correct thinking rammed doiwn pupils throats but noe a study by a local education department suggests this obsession with politicallly corret diversity is responsible for the failure of white working class pupils.

Israel maybe guilty of war crimes – UN Human Rights Chief(This could be the understatement of the millennium)
Israel maybe committing war crimes in Gaza, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights says. Speaking in Geneva, Navi Pillay said house demolitions and the killing of children raise the "strong possibility" that Israel is violating international law. Opening an emergency debate at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, she citied cases of Israeli air strikes and shelling hitting ...

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 - Nothing is ever what it seems to be
Nothing is ever what it seems to be, I learned that doing top level consultancy contracts for government departments. Deception is the name of the game. So what of Flight MH17, certainly the plane was shot down and our sympathies are with the families of the dead. But the game of finger pointing that followed was not about justice but political opportunism. And by playing a waiting game the Russsians are winning again.

US State Dept. Annoyed at Press Questioning MH17 Narrative Spokeswoman Angrily Refers Press to Social Media for 'Proof'
The Obama Administration continues to reiterate its narrative on what happened to Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 with more certainty (and often different details) every day, but there is a stark lack of evidence, beyond a handful of “authenticity could not be verified” images floating around on social media. With Russia denying the allegations, the US must have some really damning evidence to be so certain, right? Just so, insists the State Department, just don’t ask them to show any of it.

Obama Goes Full - On Nazi: with Europe, and it’s headlined on July 18th, “US Accused of Forcing EU to Accept Tar Sands Oil Trade
The secret negotiations around the 'New World Order' free trade treaties, TPP and TTIP that will strip democratically elected governments of sovereign power lumber on. There are positive signs however that the world is waking up to the neo Nazi nature of these sleazy so - called trade treaties cooked up by the Obama Andministration and some of the biggest and most evil corporate businesses in the world.

Diversity' Does Not Mean Quotas. Why Do The Left Have To Rewrite The Dictionary.
One might think, given the amount of screaming and shouting about diversity we hear from the left, they might take a little time to find out what it really means and stop applying their superficial and shallow meaning to it. The left however are hupocrites which is why they can claim to have a monopoly on truth and goodness while embracing the tactics of fascism in silencing opposition. Thus they have no problem reducing 'diversity' to a question of skin colour or sexual preference while insisting only one shade of opinion is acceptable.

What The Media Is Not Writing About Flight MH17
Only hours after the tragic downing of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine, Western politicians, led by the dickhead in chief Barack Hussein Obama were jumping up and down screaming "It was Russia wot done it." The sycophants in mainstream media were quick to join in, stating that ...

Whatever War Crimes Obama Accuses Russia Of You Can Bet America Has done It First.

World policitical leaders and media sycophants are lining up to condemn Russia for the dowing on Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 over Ukraine. Here are a few snippets from our coverage:

Rotherham - Bad New For The Nation But It Gets Better And Better For The Kippers
All week I have been seeing blogs and comments written by lefties proclaiming idiotically that Douglas Carswell's defection to UKIP was the beginning of the end, that the UKIP bubble had burst and so on. Pretty much what they were saying in the days after UKIP had trounced the mainstream parties in the European Parliament elections.

Weaponised Ebola Virus? The World Always Catches Up Eventually?
Gratifying to see the rest of the blogosphere are now asking questions like this:"What is a US Army Bio-Weapons research lab doing at the heart of Ebola outbreak"
It's a good and valid question and one Boggart Blog asked some weeks ago as the Washington / London / Brussels propaganda machine was ramping up the Ebola fear and panic to a new level.

ISIS completely fabricated enemy by US says Former CIA contractor
We were not surprised to see this news item in the feeds. When you consider the Flight MH17 False Flag, the Syria poison gas attack that was carried out by US backed terorists and which the Obama administration tried (and failed) to blame on Assad, the US / EU engineered coup in Ukraine that overthrew a democractivally elected government and replaced it with a gang of neo Nazi thugs ...

Scandal hit Rotherham ‘deleted abuse files’
In a move that puts them among the contenders for lying, self serving shits of the decade, but still in a league of their own un terms of complete and utter shittiness, it has emerged that the scum sucking scab lice of Rotherham Council's controlling Labour group and the public servants they employed had deleted files in order to cover up their complicity in the blatant and systematic child abuse perpetrated under the noses of council officials.

Dutch Intellectuals Apologise to Putin for Lies on MH17, Syria, Ukraine
When someone waves his academic qualifications at me and expects me to give a damn, it pisses me off. Since the blog started it has worked on the principle that everybody is entitled to their opinion and everybody's opinion is worth equal respect.

Centralized power - the worst of all possible worlds
The centralization of power over the past few decades in nations of the developed world has led to the evolution of a sociopathic managerial class formed mainly from the old petite bourgoisie who have now gravitted to public sector careers where their delusions of social status and the unaccountability of office lead them to abuse such power as they have.

The Perils Of Centralized Power
We show how the increasing centralization of power has led to the public becoming disenfranchised and feelinf unable to control their own lives. it has also facilitated the growth of a culture of corruption and cover up in public life, the justice system, education, the churches and other areas where the elite have become remote and out of touch with the citizens they serve.

Kick Political Correctness Out Of Football
As another football versus politiocally correct authoritarianist brings 'the beautiful game' even further into disrepute, we wonder is it time to kick politically correct authoritarianism out of sport.

IMF Chief Legarde Arrested? It's DSKja vu All Over Again.
Like her predecessor in the job, Domique Strauss - Khan, IMF Chief Christine Legarde feaces prosecution for criminality and is likely to be forced out of the job. Yet the dodgy episodes in Legarde's past were well known before she was appointed head of the IMF. So who put the kinfe in and why?

The science of saturated fat: A big fat surprise about nutrition?
After years of being told saturated fat is a killer and we should avoid it in favour of Big Food products that are the nearest modern chemistry can get to packaging arterial plaque, yet another scientific meta analysis shows the sat fat scare was based of fraudulent science and there is no evidence your steak is harming you.

Australian Teenagers Rebel Over Plain Cigarette Packaging I've commented many times on but never devoted an article to the deluded nature of the anti-smoking campaign, which claims great success in curbing smoking but completely ignores unofficial estimates that for every cigarette sold legitimately in the UK, another one (or possibly two) are comtraband. This news item from Breitbart London on ...

Political Europe Suppressed Under Washington´s Thumb Is Waking Up
In the aftermath of the downing of the Malaysian airliner in Ukraine, the Western media followed Washington’s lead and manipulated reports in order to make Europeans believe that Russia and Russian-supported separatists in eastern Ukraine were responsible for downing the airliner. In Germany, the press was an extension of Washington’s propaganda machine despite the lack of evidence from both Washington and Kiev to support their irresponsible claims.

CDC Whistleblower Links MMR Vaccine to Autism
One day the truth will be revealed about the MMR vaccine and its alleged link to autism as well as a host of other health problems in young children. One question damns the case in favour of MMR as propaganda. If it is as important as health authorities say to vaccinate children against MMR, why insist on the triple vaccine when there was never a problem with a separate measles vaccine? Could Corporate Profits have something to do with it?

Microsoft Admits Banking $92 Billion Offshore to Avoid Paying $29 Billion in U.S. Taxes
No wonder the control freak and man who made 'not fit for purpose' acceptable quality for sale, Bill Gates can afford to be a philanthropist. Today we learned Microsoft Corp. is sitting on almost $29.6 billion it would owe in U.S. taxes if it repatriated the $92.9 billion of earnings being kept offshore, according to disclosures in the company’s annual filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Human DNA Shock: David Icke Was Right All The Time
newly published scientific research shows that Mr. Icke may have been right all along. About 30,000 years ago early human ancestors interbred with a species completely unknown to biologists, geneticists and anthropologists it reveals.

The British Jihad, Islamism And The Curse Of Multiculturalism.
As the world recoils in horror at images posted on the internet of an American journalist being cruelly and brutally beheaded by an (allegedly) British terrorist fighting for the extremists of the Islamic State in northern Iraq, we ask is the left wing folly of multiculturalism coming home to roost.

The Real Agenda Of Internet Trolls (fans of free speech they are not)The Real Agenda Of Internet Trolls (fans of free speech they are not)
You've seen internet trolls at work, in any comment thread under a blog or article on a controversial subject the trolls will be busy. Are they just mean spirited bigots determined not to tolerate anybody whose opinion differs to their own. Or is there another agenda at work?

MH17 Downing: CIA Analysts Decline To Support White House Allegations Of Russian Involvement. As the controversy over who shot down Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 grinds on, the case made by President Obama that Russia was in some way involved is looking weaker and weaker.

Conspiracy Theorist me? OK Smartarse, So You Don't Believe Conspiracy Theories? Read This .....
I have a theory, not a conspiracy theory but about those who yell conspiracy theorit whenever government propaganda is challenged. I think these people are profoundly insecure and so afraid of the idea that we are on our own in thid big bad world, they have to convince themselves the government is their bestest friend and will protect them whatever happens. Sad really ...

UK Must Work With Assad To Combat ISIS? Laugh, I Nearly Shat
When Obama first called for military intervention in Syria, Cameron and Hollande were all for it and only public opinion in the west and Russian / Chinese Intransigence in the UN Security Council averted full scale war. I came in for a lot of flak for 'supporting the tyrant Assad when I suggested the last thing the west's troubled economies needed was another messy and unwinnable middle east war. Revenge is a dish best served cold. Its Showtime!

The Latest Misinformation Out Of Kiev
Sometimes we think things are cooling down in Ukraine, media ficus on the propaganda war betweek the kiev government and its American and European backers and the pro Russian separatists, backed by The Kremlin distracts us from what is going on on the ground. But there is still plenty goig on on the ground

OK Smartarse, So You Don't Believe Conspiracy Theories? Read This ...
As internet users you've all come across the kind of smart arse who thinks he has all the answers. The usually describe themselves as scientists or realists and are absolutely sure they are far too clever to be taken in by any of the nonsense that right wing extremist swivel eyed loons are always banging on about.

The Hate And Prejudice The Bourgois Left Find Acceptable
The neo - fascist left are quick to jump on any of the forbidden pejudices, racism, sexism, homophobia, islamophobia and so on. But as we have seen, they find pejudice and hated againt Christians and white Europeans quite acceptable. The bourgeois metropitan set might think that is acceptable but where I come from it's called hypocrisy.

What Would The Future Look Like Without The Propaganda Happy Pills The arrogance, hubris and contempt for morality displayed by our ruling classes is gobsmacking. Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrat politicians seem to think they are untouchable, above the norms and ethics that apply to ordinary mortals and that they are able to rewrite the laws of nature on a whim. We are not just talking about politicians here, but bankers and business leaders, the legal, medical and education professions, public servants, academics and senior police officers.

Funny Things Happen In Ukraine - The Destriction Of The Convoy That Didn't Exist
The Ukraine Government claimed they had destroyed a Russian convoy that entered their territory. East Ukrainian rebels denounced it as an atrocity. Two British journalists working near the Russia / Ukrain border said they had witnessed the carnage. Russia said there had been no convoy. Independent sources said satellite pictures showed no evidence of wreckage. WTF was that all about?

Ebola and the Absent “Humanitarians”
When the FUKUS axis leaders, France, United Kingdom and the Unites States of America were calling for approval to intervene in Libya, Yemen, Syria and Ukraine, they justified their lust for war by claiming that bombing the crap out of those counties was necessary on humanitarian grounds. And the member of the FUKUS axis and their allies spent billions of $£€ on humanitarian bombs that wreaked hiumanitarian havoc among the innocent poor and middle class citizens of those nations. Now they have work out their 'The Jihad Is Coming' scare but have a new weapon Ebola ...

US TV news: Zero evidence to prove MH17 shot down by pro Russian rebels
We have had our share of fun with shills for America's war of economic salavtion. The problem is that right after Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 was brought down over Ukraine, we said calims that US military surveillance agents had 'compelling evidence' the rebels in Ukraine shot down the aircraft seemed a little too quick and made the disaster look like another US sponsored false flag attack ...

Russia to request MH17 probe report This might throw a spanner in the works of the cosy carve up between the USA, Britain, The Netherlands and Ukraine over analysis of the evidence from inquiries into the downing of malaysia airlines Flight MH17.
Russia will request an official report in relation to progress of an investigation into the crash of a Malaysian passenger plane in eastern Ukraine.
"We will ask for a briefing by the UN Secretariat on the progress of the implementation of Resolution 2166," Russia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin told reporters at the UN headquarters in New York on Monday.

New malaria vaccine doesn’t work most of the time, but manufacturer says it’s good enough to sell
Once again we turn our attention to vaccines and the criminality of the drug companies that manufacture and sell them:
There's a good chance that the vast majority of people who receive it won't derive any benefits whatsoever. But that isn't stopping British drug giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) from seeking regulatory approval for a new vaccine for malaria, known as RTS,S, that a recent study determined is only about 30 percent effective at preventing severe cases of the disease, which has no recognized cure.

Germany Is Building a European Army Before Your Eyes
The Dutch army is made up of three brigades, plus support staff and Special Forces. On June 12, one of those brigades, the 11th Airmobile, officially joined the German army.
This was the first time ever that European country has handed part of its army over to another country. “Never before has a state renounced this elementary and integral part of its sovereignty,” wrote Die Welt’s political editor Thorsten Jungholt.
“The hour has come, finally, for concrete steps towards a European Army.” — Chairman of the German Parlaiment’s Defence Committee Hans-Peter Bartels ...

Leaked Document Exposes One Sidedness Of Corporate-Friendly Trade Deal
A leaked document reveals the extent to which the Canada Europe Trade Agreement (CETA), a template for the much bigger and therefore more threatening to freedom and democratic rule Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment partnership (TTIP), will give Corporate businesses dominion over sovereign nation's elected asdsemblies and law courts. It's time we took up pitchforks and cudgels to march on London ...

Islamic State Threatens UK Says Cameron. Have We Heard Anything Similar Before
According to our Prime Minister, The West is engaged in a generational struggle against Islamic extremism that will threaten Britain unless urgent action is taken to defeat it, David Cameron warns today. (I told you those Tornado jet fighter planes were not in Iraq to drop bulk supplies of rice you beseiged Yazidis.)

Huge North Sea oil find enough to produce for over thirty five years. Media silence

First borken by the Blogosphere, this story which should be the biggest in British news media by now, is just being picked up by the mainstream. When will some newspaper or TV news editor be brave enough to run it we wonder? The story:

An oil field, described as one of the biggest untapped resources in the North Sea, is set to produce oil until 2050, it has emerged.

New GMO Approval Will Go Ahead Despite Public Outcry.

Corporate monopoly men and control freak politicians, aided by their Dr. Death scientists are determined to force genetically modified (GM) foods on an very sceptical public. If there was any truth in the claims that GM crops can feed the world and are safe, the public would not be sceptical, but the genetically engineered organisms now being developed are modified to be resistant to highly toxic chemicals to which humans and animals have no resistance.

Is It Lack Of Diversity That Makes Lefties Stupid?
Quite a while ago now I wrote a post titled "Is It Lack Of Diversity That Drives Left wing Hate?" It contained these lines: There's an old joke; Q: "Why do teenagers only listen to other teenagers?" A: "Because they're stupid." - Q: "Why are teenagers stupid?" A: Because they only listen to other teenagers." Substitute leftie, liberal, radical or progressive for teenager and that just about sums up the political 'left'

"Anti-Putin" Alliance Fraying: Germany, Slovakia, Greece, Czech Republic Urge End To Russian Sanctions
When I posted a blog yesterday, Game and set to Putin (it wasn't quite match) which commented on how while Russia has shrugged off the American and EU sanctions, European farmers were being hit hard by Russia's retaliatory ban on foodstuff from the EU, Mike St. Mark replied that while the Russian leader was running rings round the USA, EU and Ukraine, he didn't think it was quite game and set at that point. It is now ...

The U.S. is bombing Iraq isn’t for humanitarian reasons
The involvement of Britain’s Royal Air Force in delivering humanitarian aid in Iraq t has triggered speculations that the UK, may join the US in launching targeted air strikes against the Islamic State. The RAF Tornados deployed Tornado are two seat fighter planes capable of low level s supersonic flight but not idea for delivering large payloads of bagged rice or bottled water. They could be useful for dropping medicines however. Though British military leaders were insistent that the aircraft would only be used in Iraq as part of humanitarian operations, the choice of Tornados ... More

Game And Set To Putin - Sanctions Hit EU Economies
Do you remember how the lefties cheered just a short while ago when in retaliation for Russia not obliging the warmongers of the military / industrial complex by starting World War Three in response to numerous provocations. They praised ...

Will new clean energy process make coal the fuel of the future
Coal, you exclaim, throwing up your hands in horror, the stuff that covered buildings of industrial towns in black soot, the stuff that choked miners lungs and sent millions of people to early graves? Coal the filthiest fuel ever? How can you say it is clean? Well a new technology recently announced might change your mind. Unless you are a windmill worshipping Warmageddonist of course.

Such Nice People Live On The Left Of The Political Spectrum
Left wing politics, once the politics of freedom, individualism and self - determination has increasingly over the past few decades become the politics of hate, envy, bitterness, hypocrisy and authoritarianism. Left wing politics has now developed a level of intolerance for those who challenge its idiotic assumptions or moral superiority, it appears to be charging headlong towards fascism.

Independent Scientists Demolish The Lies About GMOs And The Safety Of Glyphosate
The GMO battle goes on, one one side the corporate funded, government backed, global government supporting science lobby, on the other the part of the biological research community that still believes in hostesty, integrity and objectivity. This article reports a conference at which independent scientists (i.e. those not funded by biotech corporations) expose the lies and corruption behind claims that GM crops are safe. Say no to GMO.

Britain’s maths policy simply doesn’t add up - but neither does overestimating the importance of maths.
As an engineer, mathematics has been an important part of my career but I have always been aware that it is a tool. In the past there have been many attempts to develop a 'philosophy of everything' base on mathematical speculations that took maths into areas it was never designed to go, areas of human thought and enquiry that rightly belong to philosophers. This talk of mathematicians being creative jarrs with me somewhat, inventors, engineers, designers are creative. Mathematics is just part of our tool kit.

Genetically Modified Truth? How Corpoate Money Corrupted Science.
Little Nicky is sceptical about many things, it's in my job description. Incidentally, for the benefit of those over qualified, under educated idiots who think I'm right wing extremist, it is a basic tenet of Liberal philosophy that we all have a duty to question that which is presented as an established truth.

How Fundamentalists Of Materialism Hijacked Science.
Yet again we find ourselves making a stand against the fascism of mainstream science. The nerds are getting stroppy and trying to suppress ideas they don't like again (Nobody expects The Science Inquisition) Thing is of course, if their ideas were half as good as they claim, the alternative being proposed would not look so convincing.

The Return Of The Twopenny Upright
That erudite commentator on business and economics and Cappo di Tutti Cappi, Tony Soprano once said to one of his sidekicks, "In any recession which businesses are least affected? Prostitution, gambling and organised crime." Our political leaders, in Britain, Europe and the USA may be telling us the recession is over and recovery is surging ahead but ... Why Does The US Government Hold A Patent On The Ebola Virus? Just Askin'
The outbreak of Ebola fever in west Africa has been making headlines since January this year, but as usual we are only being told half the story by mainstream media. It took a lot of digging by myself and colleagues in the blogosphere to dig up this pile of dirt which suggests the "new strain" of Ebola faver that has killed far more people than previous outbreaks may have resulted from attempts to weaponise the virus. And guess which national government is allegedly responsible.

Secrets And Lies And Oil In Scottish Referendum Cover Up
As the referendum in which Scotland will vote for or against independence from the United Kingdom approaches rumours are rife that news of a massive oil find near the shetanad Isles is being suppressed. Such news would guarentee scotland;s financial stability and could be a game changer in the unpredictable vote. But the UK government will not want to let that oil slip between their fingers.

Astrophysicist Declares GMOs Safe - Is Demolished By A Biologist.
The GMO battle goes on, one one side the corporate funded, government backed, global government supporting science lobby, on the other the part of the biological research community that still believes in hostesty, integrity and objectivity, supported by the masses of ordinary punters who support common sense solutions and whose suspicion of big money science is based on its track record of disaster, catastrophe and unforeseen consequences. Say no to GMO.

Shock; horror. Human Barbie Doll has her own opinions
The human Barbie girl Valeria Lukyanova has become something of an online phenomenon and is regarded as a sex symbol by many young men of the kind who have more computers than friends. Personally I find her apearance bizarre and about as sexually alluring as cold porridge. Still each to there own, where would we be without diversity of opinion.

We Will Raise The Flag Of Allah In The White House Say ISIS Leaders
The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) or Islamic State for short has a nice line in chutzpah, which seems a very Jewish quality for Islamists. Their leaders have issued a video via Vice media which warns the United States that ...

Suppression Of News Used To Influence Scottish Referendum Vote?
Now, in order to avoid being accused of trying to influence the outcome of the Scottish Referendum (because I don't believe in telling the scots how to run their affairs any more than I approve of telling Arabs, Afghans and Ukrainians how their countries should be run) I offer for your consideration this news leaved via Oil and Gas People.

As Obama launches another airborne assault in Iraq, who are ISIS
I have been consistently against western (FUKUS axis) interventions in domestic politics of middle eastern states. There comes a time however when intervention is necessary. Thus we must accept the necessity of the USA's latest military adventure, the reconvening of the war in Iraq.So why have I had a change of heart at this stage?

EU Boss Argues That Their Work With Banks And Corporate Interests Should Be Concealed From The Public.
Shills for global government and corporate fascism are always quick to shout 'conspiracy theorist' when anybody questions things like the EU federalisation project, the Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the Trans Pacific Trade Partnership (TPP) The obvious response is to ask why representatives of supra national bureaucracies are so desperate to ensure progress on these peojects is shrounded in secrecy?

The Real Reason The US Is Bombing Iraq
Only a day after Obama’s announcement that he had authorized “targeted strikes” inside Iraq in order to combat the Islamic State (IS) advance, the United States has indeed followed through with their threat. At least two waves of airstrikes against a variety of targets have already taken place inside Iraq. One of the airstrikes apparently struck an IS mortar position and an IS convoy near Erbil.

Nanny State is on the warpath, admonishing finger wagging furiously, lips compressed into a thin line, she is launching another determined effort to make sure we are all too scared to think for ourselves or make our own choices, Nanny is now warning, with the usual threats of early and painful death is we disobey, that we should ...

German Handelsblatt Releases Stunning Anti-West Op-Ed, Asks If West Rabble-Rousers Are On The Payroll Of The KGB
Up until this point in the Obama Administrations attempt to recreate events leading up to World War One, Angela Merkel and German media in general, had been firmly on the side of the west when it comes to dealing with Russia, Putin and realpolitik in broader terms. That changed dramatically today when Gabor Steingart, the chief editor of Handelsblatt, Germany's leading economic newspaper, came out with a stunning op-ed, in German, English and Russian, titled simply that "The West on the wrong path"

MH17: More evidence points to Kiev / Washington False Flag
Last week Little Nicky relayed reports (yes, relayed; in spite of what some authoritarians would have you believe, I don't make this stuff up, it's all reported) accounts of two German aviation experts who testified that their examination of photographs showing wreckage from around the cockpit area of the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 shot down over Ukraine were consistent with heavy calibre machine gun fire, which suggested the plane had been shot down by ...

Scots Wha Hae When Wallace Bled - A Boggart's view of Scottish Independence.
The Scottish Independence debate has failed so far to fire passions north of the border. Most Scots seem to be seeking evidence that Scotland will be no worse off as an independent nation, or is and will continue to be better off as part of the UK. Nobody in either London or Edinburgh is able to give a straight answer however. Her's our contribution ...

How Politically Correct Thinking Leads Into A Moral Maze
Being a leftie can be hard work however, with so many of the causes they must embrace being in direct opposition to other favoured causes, lefties encounter a lot of moral dilemmas. So being a believer in all -isms, the kind of idiot who equates calls for immigration controls with South African Apartheid or Stalinist genocide and is quite sure that equality means members of favoured minorities should be given me the privileged status of an elite class, can get hairy at times.

Another Obama Sponsored Genocide - not Alawi or Christians In Syria but Yazidi in Iraq.
While the west has been distracted by events in Gaza and Ukraine, and the neo - fascist 'left' have suddenly discovered the joys of anti Russianism and anti Semitism, the FUKUS axis sponsored genocidists of ISIS have discovered another inoffensive minority to exterminate now that the Syriac Christians have fled.

Neo - fascist Left's Idiotic Obsession With Racism Becoming More Insane
I don't know how many of you have noticed but the wailing and gnashing of teeth from the politically correct left over imaginary racism has become fr moire irrational and hysterical since the success of UKIP the the European Parliament elections back in May. The latest entirely innocent thing to be the target of racism accusations from the insane left is BBC Radio's sedate gardening programme Gardeners World. How have the cucumers and compost brigade upset the loony left?

Fear and Panic and Ebola Fever
The latest attempt to justify war has been the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over Ukraine allegely by pro Russia separatists with support from The Kremlin. So far the 'compelling evidence' the American government claimed to possess has not been revealed but such evidence as has been seen points to another false flag even. Remember the Swine Flu pandemic?They're doing it again with Ebola fever, ramping up the scare factor and trying to spread enough fear and panic to justify suspending democratic rule by pretending this disease could potentially kill most of us.

Afrophilia and the reality of western ambitions in Africa
One of the dogmas of this politically correct cult of knee jerking, lockstep marching, wisdom-of-the-crowd chanting flock of Sheeple is that we must love Africa. Dark skin good, pale skin bad is the mantra. That the sheeple are nothing more than gullible dupes and useful idiots to the faceless men and women who really lead us is shown by the contrast between the mass Afrophilia of the flock and the way the controllers see Africa.

FUKUS axis imposes sanctions, Russian Oligarchs Shrug
So far in the Libyan crisis, the Syria crisis, the Iraq crisis and the Ukraine crisis, Obama and the European leaders have made a lot of noise and imposed a lot of meaningless sanctions (like confiscating the bus passes of retired Russian gengsters living in the west. And the Russians have just quietly got on with doing what they were doing.

What are US biowar researchers doing in the Ebola zone?
What are US biowar researchers doing in the Ebola zone? That is a question being asked around the cyberosphere as the Ebola outbreak in Africa continues to spread and alarm grows in the western nations. The Tulane University researchers [and colleagues] in the US biowarfare research community, have been operating in West Africa for some time. What exactly have they been doing? Exactly what diagnostic tests have they been performing on citizens of Sierra Leone?

Mass Immigration Means Failing Hospitals, Schools And Overcrowded Cities
Another shock for the left as think tank Civitas reports that mass immigration causes enormous social and economic problems while the 'benefits' to society the left bang on about are very marginal. The left's real agenda of course is the genocide of the fair skinned races. As most of these stupid lefties are white Europeans or Americans this is a perfect illustation of how stupid and self important they are, How does that old joke go about turkeys voting for Christmas?

Pandemonium: UKIP Taken Over By Fiends From Hell?
UKIP are at risk of being engulfed in another "ism" scandal as Jake Baynes, prospective parliamentary candidate for Wells has resigned his candiacy and party offices, claiming the constituency party has been taken over by "Occultists"

Ukraine Government Fires Missiles At Rebel Held Targets Leaders in Washington, London, Paris and Brussels continue to pump out the propaganda against Russia as they try to provoke a war over the alleged shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 over Ukraine by separatist rebels supported by Russia. But in spite of claims by Obama and Kerry that the US have evidence that proves it was the rebels wot done it, the more evidence we see, the more likely it looks that the Ukrain government in Kiew was responsible.

Why Do The 'Progressive Left' Support Those Who Use Rape As A Weapon Of War
Rape as a weapon of war and genocide is not a pleasant subject but it is one that needs to be raise, like the issue of Female Genital Mutilation. Why visit such unpleasant topics? To expose the hypocrisy of the modern political left who have more in common with Hitler's Nazis, Mussolini's Fascist or Stalin's brutal Soviet regime that the supporters of traditional left wing values of individual freedom, free speech and equality before the law.

FUKUS axis imposes sanctions, Russian Oligarchs Shrug
You have probably read a torrent of arse dribble in mainstream media about "Russia is becoming increasingly isolated" It's a meme that political leaders in the FUKUS axis, EU and NATO would like us to believe. It isn't quite the whole story however.

Sensational Break From Official Lies - German Aviation Expert Says MH17 Brought Down By Air To Air Missile
The shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over Ukraine has triggered a war of words between the USA / FUKUS axis and Russia as President Obama, without any clear evidence to support him, tried to blame Russia and use the outrage to justify a military intervention in Ukraine that would certainly start a major global conflict. So far Russia has stood its ground but refused to be provoked as evidence like that below has undermined the western narrative.

Germany Axes Canada-EU Trade Agreement, This Will End TTIP Stitch Up Too
We are winning. Well today we are at least. News broke over the weekend that Germany intends to junk the Canada Europe Trade Agreement (CETA), a template for the much bigger and therefore more threatening to freedom and democratic rule Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment partnership (TTIP). So it looks as though the shockwave of the European Parlianment elections has awoken politicians to the anger of voters throughout Europe with the dicatatorial attitude of the EU.

Who shot down MH17? Black Box Data Reveals Nothing We Did Not Know
As the political and media war over responsibility for the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 continues, here's a chance to view a report put together by the BBC Russia news channel (In Russian with English subtitles).

Now Things Are Starting To Make Sense
It is now known that the uprising in Ukraine early this year that saw the elected government, which was cooperating far too well with Russia for the liking of the western powers overthrown and replaced by a US and EU sponsored gaggle of gangsters, thugs and neo - fascists whose task was to

Funny How A Few Days Good Weather Brings The Warmageddonists Out
Over the past few scorching hot days I have seen several members of the alomst defunct Warmageddonist society plugging their tired, discredited old "science" and trying to claim that mathematics proves that what is observably not happening is actually happening but only scientists are clever enough to understand that ... Hmm, is that so?

Military Veterans Opinion: Probably A Bomb That Took Down MH-17!
Funny how the left present themselves as the politics of peace and unity but are all out in support of Barack Obama's latest warmongering campaign in Ukraine following the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17. I suppose the pacifists enthusiasm for World War Three proves George Orwell was right when he said War is Peace.

America's Dumbest Move Yet: Hijacking A Foreign Bank
The financial markets seem to be getting more volatile, with share prices and currency values fluctuating wildly on the slightest indication of good or bad news. But when central banks start hijacking other banks on the basis of very flimsy evidence from a pariah state, we should befinding somewhere safer for our money

UK Government Report Confirms Huge Abuse of EU Free Movement Rules
After scream of 'racists' and 'bigots' from the left when common sense users pointed out that mass immigration does not benefit the economy, nor is it fair to the people shiioped here having been promised a utopian existence only to find they are living in foul conditions, doing menial jobs, and being paid under minimum wage and exploited by unscrupulous bosses. , a report by civil servants confirms that the 'right wing extremists' was absolutely correct.

Malaysian Government and Opposition Call For MH17 Justice – Evidence Suggests Foul Play
Thanks to the sleazy political opportunism of Barack Hussein Obama and his bum boy David Cameron the tragedy of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 has been turned into a circus as the outrageous accusations (based on zero evidence, the USA told reporters to look on Facebook if they wanted proof the Ukrain pro Russia separatists did it) have spawned increasingly crazy conspiracy theories.

Poor white pupils put off school by multicultural timetable
Education, should it be about learning to read, write, spell and calculate? Or should it be about feminism, gay rights, black history and 'gender awareness' whatever that is? For many years we have had multiculturalism and politically correct thinking rammed doiwn pupils throats but noe a study by a local education department suggests this obsession with politicallly corret diversity is responsible for the failure of white working class pupils.

Israel maybe guilty of war crimes – UN Human Rights Chief(This could be the understatement of the millennium)
Israel maybe committing war crimes in Gaza, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights says. Speaking in Geneva, Navi Pillay said house demolitions and the killing of children raise the "strong possibility" that Israel is violating international law. Opening an emergency debate at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, she citied cases of Israeli air strikes and shelling hitting ...

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 - Nothing is ever what it seems to be
Nothing is ever what it seems to be, I learned that doing top level consultancy contracts for government departments. Deception is the name of the game. So what of Flight MH17, certainly the plane was shot down and our sympathies are with the families of the dead. But the game of finger pointing that followed was not about justice but political opportunism. And by playing a waiting game the Russsians are winning again.

US State Dept. Annoyed at Press Questioning MH17 Narrative Spokeswoman Angrily Refers Press to Social Media for 'Proof'
The Obama Administration continues to reiterate its narrative on what happened to Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 with more certainty (and often different details) every day, but there is a stark lack of evidence, beyond a handful of “authenticity could not be verified” images floating around on social media. With Russia denying the allegations, the US must have some really damning evidence to be so certain, right? Just so, insists the State Department, just don’t ask them to show any of it.

Obama Goes Full - On Nazi: with Europe, and it’s headlined on July 18th, “US Accused of Forcing EU to Accept Tar Sands Oil Trade
The secret negotiations around the 'New World Order' free trade treaties, TPP and TTIP that will strip democratically elected governments of sovereign power lumber on. There are positive signs however that the world is waking up to the neo Nazi nature of these sleazy so - called trade treaties cooked up by the Obama Andministration and some of the biggest and most evil corporate businesses in the world.

Diversity' Does Not Mean Quotas. Why Do The Left Have To Rewrite The Dictionary.
One might think, given the amount of screaming and shouting about diversity we hear from the left, they might take a little time to find out what it really means and stop applying their superficial and shallow meaning to it. The left however are hupocrites which is why they can claim to have a monopoly on truth and goodness while embracing the tactics of fascism in silencing opposition. Thus they have no problem reducing 'diversity' to a question of skin colour or sexual preference while insisting only one shade of opinion is acceptable.

What The Media Is Not Writing About Flight MH17
Only hours after the tragic downing of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine, Western politicians, led by the dickhead in chief Barack Hussein Obama were jumping up and down screaming "It was Russia wot done it." The sycophants in mainstream media were quick to join in, stating that ...
