Pegida UK falls flat: Newcastle counter-demo outnumbers anti-Islamists by 5-to-1

Fewer than 300 people turned up in Newcastle for the first-ever rally of anti-Islamist group Pegida in the UK, while at least 1,500 gathered to protest the demo, just hundreds of yards away.

“We are here because nobody else who should be talking about the problems in this country is talking about them,” said Pegida’s keynote speaker, Paul Weston, from the far-right Liberty GB party, to an audience that mostly comprised white middle-aged men holding Union Jacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This attempt to fan the flames of hate against Muslims is failing because we recognize it as the same tactic the Nazis used against the Jews, leading to WW2.

What the BRICS plus Germany are really up to?

Winston Churchill once said, “I feel lonely without a war.” He also badly missed the loss of empire. Churchill’s successor – the ‘Empire of Chaos’ – now faces the same quandary. Some wars – as in Ukraine, by proxy – are not going so well.

And the loss of empire increasingly manifests itself in myriad moves by selected players aiming towards a multipolar world.

So no wonder US ‘Think Tankland’ is going bonkers, releasing wacky CIA-tinted “forecasts” where Russia is bound to disintegrate, and China is turning into a communist dictatorship. So much (imperial) wishful thinking, so little time to prolong hegemony.

MI6 complicity? Lee Rigby killer’s torture claims investigated, says Cameron

A new inquiry will be conducted into claims that MI6 were complicit in the alleged torture of Michael Adebolajo, one of the two men later convicted of murdering British soldier Lee Rigby in Woolwich in May 2013.

The investigation will focus on how the British spy agency handled claims Adebolajo was beaten by Kenya’s security forces, who have close ties with the UK, while detained there in 2010.

Prime Minister David Cameron ordered the inquiry after a report by Parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC) criticized MI6, also known as the Secret Intelligence Service.

The committee’s report found MI6 never asked the Kenyan authorities about Adebolajo’s claims, dismissing them as fabricated.

Treasury admits 'fat finger' blunder costing Lloyds bond holders £2bn

The Treasury has admitted it made a blunder by telling Lloyds Banking Group that it had permission to buy back investor bonds that propped the bank up in the wake of the financial crash – depriving holders of the notes billions of pounds in interest payments.

The so-called "fat finger" error reported by Business Insider, saw the Treasury incorrectly state the Prudential Regulatory Authority had approved Lloyds' application to redeem a series of Enhanced Capital Notes (ECNs), disclosed by the bank on 16th December 2014.

A statement by Sir Nicholas Macpherson, Permanent Secretary, HM Treasury, said: "HM Treasury understands that the PRA has not yet made a decision regarding whether to approve Lloyds Banking Group's application. We apologise for this error, and sincerely regret any problems caused."

The real reason Diana tapes were shelved: Director claims BBC axed 'dynamite' footage amid fears of upsetting monarchy - despite spending £500,000 on programme

The BBC allegedly wasted £500,000 on a documentary featuring 'dynamite' interviews with Princess Diana - but later shelved it because it did not want to upset the monarchy, it has been claimed.

According to the director behind a controversial documentary about the Princess of Wales, the BBC went on to give a misleading account of why the programme was not broadcast.

The Corporation said at the time that Diana: Her Story, Her Words, due to be broadcast on the tenth anniversary of her death, did not sufficiently add to the story of Diana's life.

But, in another controversial documentary being aired tonight, it is claimed the BBC stopped its broadcast amid fears it would upset the Royal Family close to Prince's Charles 60th birthday.

The Guardian Surrenders To Zionist Pressure

The following post is taken from the Ultra Zionist CIF Watch. The hawkish Israeli outlet is bragging today about its success in persuading The Guardian to remove The Wandering Who from its online book shop. Needless to say that The Wandering Who was published three years ago, it has been a best seller since then. It was translated into 12 languages and not a single claim referring to any form of hatred has been issued in the UK or anywhere else. The Wandering Who has been endorsed by the most impressive list of scholars and humanists. Seemingly, it doesn't take much for The Guardian to shamelessly surrender to pressure made by supporters of ethnic cleansing Israel.

David Tredinnick, Tory MP, Says NHS Doctors Could Use Astrology To Treat Patients

A Tory MP has said the NHS could use astrology to treat its patients, while branding anyone that doesn’t believe in it "racist" (that’s astrology – as in the belief that there is a relationship between astronomical phenomena and events in the human world).

David Tredinnick (who sits on both the Health Select Committee and the Science and Technology Select Committee) said on Tuesday that divination could have a "role to play in healthcare" and that employing prophecy in 21st century medicine could relieve "pressure" on doctors". In an interview with the Astrological Journal, the MP for Bosworth in Leicestershire said: "I do believe that astrology and complementary medicine would help take the huge pressure off doctors."

Iraqi Army Downs Two British Planes Carrying Weapons for ISIL Terrorists

Iraq’s army has shot down two British planes as they were carrying weapons for the ISIL terrorists in Al-Anbar province, a senior lawmaker disclosed on Monday.

“The Iraqi Parliament’s National Security and Defense Committee has access to the photos of both planes that are British and have crashed while they were carrying weapons for the ISIL,” Head of the committee Hakem al-Zameli said, according to a Monday report of the Arabic-language information center of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq.

He said the Iraqi parliament has asked London for explanations in this regard.

The senior Iraqi legislator further unveiled that the government in Baghdad is receiving daily reports from people and security forces in al-Anbar province on numerous flights by the US-led coalition planes that airdrop weapons and supplies for ISIL in terrorist-held areas.

It will mean the loss of another 9,000 jobs and 200 branches.

If You Can't Make It Fake It: UK Claims Russian Missiles in Ukraine

British diplomats released photographs on Wednesday of what they described as Russia's advanced anti-aircraft artillery system allegedly being used in eastern Ukraine, saying it was further proof of Russia's military involvement in the conflict.

The snapshots of the truck-mounted SA-22 Pantsir surface-to-air missile system appeared on the web and on social networks, but for some strange reason the time and date they were taken differed from what appears on these very same photos published earlier.

...

Further linked was the webpage of the Billingcat investigative journalism group and showed a KAMAZ truck with a Pantsir-like unit sitting on top. The photo, made on a misty day against the backdrop of a concrete wall and some trees, only says, without elaborating, that it was taken in Shakhtarsk.

Which is surprising, because the very same photograph, which appeared on other websites, indicates it was taken on January 23 in Russia’s very own Rostov region.

Fiji slams UK for refusal to compensate victims of nuclear tests

Fiji has slammed the UK government for its refusal to compensate Fijian soldiers who were exposed to radiation during British nuclear tests in late 1950s.

“We are bringing justice to a brave and proud group of Fijians to whom a great injustice was done,” Fijian Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama said at a Friday ceremony held for the recognition of the suffering of the veterans.

“We are righting a wrong. We are closing an unfortunate chapter in our history,” Bainimarama added in an apparent reference to the UK’s refusal over the compensation.

The prime minister also stated, “Fiji is not prepared to wait for Britain to do the right thing. We owe it to these men to help them now, not wait for the British politicians and bureaucrats.”

Fiji was a British colony at the time of the nuclear tests.

Kincora scandal: Sex abuse victim wins right to pursue claims of MI5 collusion

A victim of child sex abuse at the notorious Kincora boys’ home in Belfast has been granted permission to launch a legal challenge over the Government’s refusal to carry out a full inquiry, amid allegations of collusion by MI5.

The decision to exclude attacks carried out at Kincora from the UK-wide inquiry into historical sex abuse, set to be chaired by the New Zealand judge Lowell Goddard, will now be subjected to a judicial review.

BT poised to land bailiff contract to collect billions in unpaid fines

BT is expected to land a much-criticised Ministry of Justice semi-privatisation deal that would see the telephony giant turn bailiff.

Chris Grayling, the Justice Secretary, believes that big business would be more effective than the courts at reducing the level of outstanding fines, which was around £2bn when the competition to find a private-sector provider was launched two years ago.

At a time when the Coalition has been trying to balance the UK’s books, ministers have also ended up writing off hundreds of millions of pounds in fines in recent years.

Now, it seems, British parliamentarians could go down the same road by considering bans on critical discourse while basing their criteria on extremely shaky definitions.

We should all rage at how the HMRC Gestapo pick on the little people while doing cosy deals with the super rich

As someone who was subjected last year to an HMRC inspection of my tax affairs, I could not be more outraged at the revelations that some of the wealthiest people in Britain have been engaging in tax avoidance on a vast scale by exploiting the secrecy offered by HSBC’s Swiss private bank.

Labour, on whose watch most of this scandal occurred, have demanded to know whether David Cameron interrogated Stephen Green — the former HSBC chairman, who was in charge of the Swiss operation — when he granted him a peerage and a job as Trade Minister.

Meanwhile, Ed Miliband — who as the Mail reports today has, with his brother, pursued lucrative tax avoidance strategies — is trying to start a new class war by throwing rocks at rich Tory donors such as philanthropist Lord Fink, whose name appears on the list of clients in Switzerland.

David Cameron's IN-LAWS have links with a string of tax havens

David Cameron has come under more pressure over his wife Samantha’s family affairs after it emerged they have links to tax havens across the globe.

The PM’s mother-in-law Lady Astor’s luxury furniture store Oka Direct is more than 50% owned by anonymous ­shareholders through accounts held in Guernsey, we can reveal.

She has a 22% stake in the firm she founded in 1999 and which has ­benefited from the offshore investment.

And Samantha’s step-dad Viscount Astor is linked to a firm in a Caribbean tax haven which owned his family’s 19,000 acre Talbert Estate in Scotland.

The revelations come amid the furore sparked by further criticism of Mr Cameron’s wife’s job with plush stationery firm Smythson, whose owners are based in Luxembourg.

And the PM was branded a ­“hypocrite” after boasting about clamping down on tax dodgers, insisting he wants all British firms to be ­“headquartered” in the UK.

David Cameron was accused of being 'up to his neck' in the Swiss bank account row today, after revelations that a string of Tory donors hoarded money in the country.

Former Conservative Party Treasurer Stanley Fink and German-born car manufacturing heir Georg von Opel, who has donated six-figure sums to the Tories, are among a host of individuals who legally held accounts in Switzerland with HSBC's private bank, according to a leaked tax disc.

In a fiery Commons debate, the Prime Minister insisted 'no-one had done more' than the current government to crack down on tax avoidance.

Social workers allowed convicted paedophile unrestricted access to five-year-old girl and failed to tell her mother about his past

A social services department allowed a convicted paedophile unrestricted access to a five-year-old girl and failed to tell her mother about his past.

The troubled social services department at Norfolk County Council has been accused of placing the child at risk as they allegedly knew the man was allowed to care for the girl alone but did not warn her mother about his history.

The case came to light after MPs and foster carers called for an investigation into claims the department has wrongly removed dozens of children from their carers.

The case is being brought by legal charity Reprieve and solicitors Leigh Day on behalf of Yunus Rahmatullah (32), who was captured in Iraq by the UK, tortured and held in the notorious Abu Ghraib prison, before being ‘rendered’ to Afghanistan by the US. He then faced a decade of detention without charge or trial in Bagram prison, before being released in 2014.

‘Politicians can't be trusted to clean up HSBC’: Govt revenue chiefs grilled over tax evasion scandal

Top UK tax officials were probed by MPs on Wednesday over the recent tax evasion scandal that has engulfed British banking giant HSBC. Labour MP Austin Mitchel said Britain’s tax avoidance industry has eclipsed its tax collection industry.

Amid global controversy over HSBC's alleged involvement in industrial scale tax evasion, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) was questioned by Britain’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC).

On Sunday, it emerged HSBC's Swiss private banking arm had aided royalty, criminals, terrorists, and drug dealers in dodging taxes.

A colossal cache of files leaked to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) shed light on the banking giant's clandestine practices between 2005 and 2007. During this period, HSBC's Swiss private banking arm controlled roughly $100 billion in assets.

Files disclosing the bank’s suspect actions were leaked to HMRC in 2010.

British Police launched a dawn raid, not on HSBC, but families accused of benefit fraud. Benefit fraud isn’t a great thing obviously, but let’s put it into perspective.

Don’t forget this is the same country that is currently hunting people down for attempting to buy copies of Charlie Hebdo and letting people die by cutting spending on healthcare to balance a budget.

A fresh scandal has erupted over the murder of Cardiff prostitute Lynette White 26 years ago with our revelation today that 227 boxes of missing legal documents relating to a police corruption case which sensationally collapsed have been discovered in a warehouse.

Documents seen by WalesOnline indicate that a retired police officer tipped off the chief inspector of Her Majesty’s Crown Prosecution Inspectorate that the boxes were being stored in a police warehouse at RAF St Athan in the Vale of Glamorgan – and that two of the documents should have been disclosed during the trial of eight former detectives and two civilians accused of conspiring to get innocent men convicted of Ms White’s murder.

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

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

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Gilad Express - A Brief Presentation At The Free Speech Forum Nottingham (video)

On Monday February 2nd, I returned to Nottingham to answer critics who accused me of all sort of things…

First, I went to Five Leaves Bookshop to confront my defamer Ross Bradshaw who led the campaign against me in Gedling ten days ago. Bradshaw gave rather feeble and defensive responses. I’ll soon publish a video of this discussion.

That night I presented my thoughts and addressed the accusations made against me. The event was filmed and the video is posted below. My opponents had been invited to join the event and debate me but they failed to show up.

Lowell Goddard: historic sex abuse inquiry will take at least three years

Justice Lowell Goddard, the newly appointed chairman of the inquiry into historic sexual abuse, has said her panel will not report back until 2018 but promised it would remain under control by setting ‘achievable goals’.

Following the chaos which surrounded the first attempts to set up the inquiry, with the departures of two chairmen over claims they were too close to the “Establishment,” Justice Goddard promised that victims would play a key role in selecting the new panel and setting its parameters.

Asked if she herself felt equipped to take on “the Establishment,” she said: “Well, I’m a judge so that’s not a new thing for me.

Plans for decommissioning giant North Sea field advance

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

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

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

The actress told LBC Radio: “When the economy dries up they turn on the usual suspect the Jew… and when the going gets tough the Jews get packing.”

British document: Israel initiated Entebbe hijack

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

THE BOMBING THAT STARTED IT ALL!

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

In the United States, government officials responded to Apple and Droid’s new encryption services by throwing temper tantrums in speeches and making archaic arguments in court.

British Prime Minister David Cameron drew media attention this week when, in response to the Paris terrorist attacks, he said

“In our country, do we want to allow a means of communication between people which […] we cannot read?”

FLASHBACK - Serb TV station was legitimate target, says Blair

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

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

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

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

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

It should include the Downing Street memo and the "Dodgy Dossier."

The exact nature of the services to be provided under the contract is unclear, prompting concerns that the company could be complicit in rights abuses under way at the prison, such as force-feeding.

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

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

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

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

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

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