Cameron vows to scrap Human Rights Act, civil liberties groups outraged

Prime Minister David Cameron has vowed to terminate the Human Rights Act if the Conservatives are re-elected in Britain’s 2015 general election. The controversial proposal has stoked the ire of civil rights groups across the nation.

Speaking on the final day of the Conservative Party’s four-day conference, Cameron pledged to scrap the Act and replace it with a British “bill of rights.”

Scotland’s Referendum; the Stolen Nation

English though I am, I was both angered and saddened by the result of the Scottish Referendum; saddened because I had hoped the Yes side would win, and angered because of all the sneering, negative and arrogant campaigning done by Westminster via the Better Together campaign. That didn’t go down too well so they brought in Gordon Brown to do his patriotic bit, which included talking about how many Scots had fought and died in the UK’s wars.

Tesco shares plunge amid probe into dodgy accounting

A Tesco accounting scandal that wiped 4 billion pounds from the firm's stock market value, and led to the suspension of four elite executives, has sparked a Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) investigation into the retail giant's bookkeeping.

Britain’s biggest grocer, and the world’s third-largest retailer, shocked UK and global investors when it publicly announced on September 22 it had overstated its profits for the first half of 2014 by 250 million pounds (US$405 million).

Britons spend more on drugs and prostitutes than beer and wine

Britons spend more on drugs and prostitutes than on beer and wine, the first official study of money spent on "illegal" activities has found.

The figures were disclosed in data today that showed a 2.2 per cent rise in the amount of money spent by families over the past year as the economy returned to health.

The Office for National Statistics, which tracks changes in spending habits across the country, found miscreants spent an enormous £12.3 billion last year on illegal substances and sexual gratification. This was more than the amount spent on wine and beer in 2013, which was just under £11 billion, according to the ONS data.

Extremists to have Facebook and Twitter vetted by anti-terror police

Extremists will have to get posts on Facebook and Twitter approved in advance by the police under sweeping rules planned by the Conservatives.

They will also be barred from speaking at public events if they represent a threat to “the functioning of democracy”, under the new Extremist Disruption Orders.

Theresa May, the Home Secretary, will lay out plans to allow judges to ban people from broadcasting or protesting in certain places, as well as associating with specific people.

The plans — to be brought in if the Conservatives win the election in May — are part of a wide-ranging set of rules to strengthen the Government’s counter-terrorism strategy.

Moazzam Begg: Former Guantanamo Bay detainee cleared of terror charges

Former Guantanamo Bay detainee Moazzam Begg has walked free from prison today after seven terror charges against him were dropped by prosecutors.

The 45-year-old had been in custody for seven months awaiting trial on charges connected to the civil war in Syria, including an allegation he attended a terrorism training camp there.

Asked what he planned to do, Mr Begg said: "I need to reconnect with my family again. I need to understand what it's like to be a free man and I think that it's important to point out some of the Government's failures in its foreign policy and its internal policy - its clear demonising of the Muslim community.

"And not once but twice in my case this Government has been involved either in directly detaining me or indirectly detaining me."

Conservative Party conference: David Cameron accidentally says Tories 'resent' the poor

Prime Minister David Cameron’s attempt to deliver a rousing speech at the Conservative Party conference backfired when he accidentally said the party ‘resents’ the poor.

In a speech which appeared to be an attempt to dispel the ‘nasty party’ label at a conference which has at times been made heavy with the talk of austerity, Mr Cameron tried to say that his party "represents" poor children who grow up on housing estates.

But instead, he said the Tories "resent the poor". The slip-up quickly saw a barrage of tweets using #FreudianSlip appear on Twitter.

Former Tory donor Arron Banks ups Ukip donation to £1million following William Hague 'nobody' comment

The former Tory donor and multi-millionaire Arron Banks has announced he is upping his Ukip donation to £1 million to spite the Conservatives, after William Hague made a joke at his expense.

Mr Farage's riposte came just hours later, when Mr Banks explained he had decided to increase his donation from £100,000 to £1 million pounds after William Hague, the Leader of the Commons, dismissed the significance of his defection.

British Citizen Hands Himself In To Scotland Yard After PM Cameron Statements To UN General Assembly

When the Prime Minister of the ‘United’ Kingdom uses the bully pulpit of the United Nations General Assembly to browbeat the community of nations to squash reasonable and necessary inquiry into 9/11 Truth, something is very wrong.

Truly, only someone with something to hide would ever make such a foolhardy proclamation.

David Cameron and Theresa May - Dangerous Nonsense

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

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

UK drops charges against ex-Guantanamo inmate

Moazzam Begg, a former Guantanamo Bay detainee, has been released from prison after UK prosecutors dropped seven terrorism-related charges against him linked to the conflict in Syria.

Begg, 45, was among four people arrested in February under suspicion of allegations including that he had attended a "terrorist" training camp in Syria.

‘No military value’ in US Syria targets

The US airstrikes in Syria target militants with “no military value” hitting the infrastructures, says Dr. Alan Sabrosky, a ten-year US Marine Corps veteran and a 1986 graduate of the US Army War College.

Washington intends to inflict “such damage to the economic and industrial infrastructure within Syria that any Syrian government after the fighting will be so weakened that it will be vulnerable to further attacks.”

Thought Crime: UK Leadership Wants To Ban Predicted 'Extremists' From Social Media, TV, Events

What's especially galling is the fact that May is claiming that this is being done in the name of "British values," which certainly suggests that freedom of speech and freedom to associate are, in fact, antithetical to British values. Also, all of this assumes that speech, alone, is somehow dangerous -- despite years of proof that speech by itself is rarely dangerous. However, the suppression of speech often creates more problems.

Theresa May's Love Affair With The Snooper’s Charter

The Conservatives have made a clear offer to the public: they are saying that they will, if elected, revive plans for the Snooper’s Charter. Massive data gathering and analysis of your online habits would become available to the police and a range of public bodies. Powers that are currently being challenged in the courts, but are in practice available to GCHQ under programmes like TEMPORA, would become an everyday policing tool.

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

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

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

Craig Murray: We have become a helot society

Britain has developed a new kind of low wage economy – one where the bulk of those on low wages work to provide services to those on very, very high remuneration. In a sense it is very old. We have become a helot society. It should be stressed that low wage is a deliberate policy. There is absolutely no reason why those in work could not be paid more. The economy would not crash. In Norway the median wage of the lowest 10 percentile is over 20,000 pounds, while the multiple between the lowest ten percentile and the top ten percentile is less than one third what it is in Britain. The UK’s astonishing and accelerating wealth gap is a result of deliberate ideological policy, founded on a notion that those at the top are possessed of rare and extraordinary abilities – whereas in truth, in the UK more than anywhere, their main achievement was usually to be born into the right family.

UK pilots union agrees mass layoffs/pay cuts

Trade unions at Monarch Airlines, Britain’s oldest surviving carrier, have agreed to cut 900 jobs, slash pay by up to 30 percent, and reduce the terms and conditions of the remaining workforce, including changing working patterns.

Details have yet to emerge as to the concessions the unions agreed regarding changing working patterns.

Monarch began discussions with the British Airline Pilots Association (BALPA) and Unite, the UK’s largest trade union, earlier this year after it threatened that without huge cutbacks it would not survive.

Extremists may face broadcast ban, social media vetting - home secretary

Powers banning extremists from appearing on TV and which allow police to vet “harmful” individuals’ social media activity would be enforced if the Conservatives return to power next year, Home Secretary Theresa May is set to announce.

The party manifesto will also pledge to introduce time-limited Extremist Disruption Orders to curb individuals’ right to speak at public events and control their social media usage. The maximum sentence could be up to 10 years in prison for breaking a banning order.

Announcing the plans at the Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham on Tuesday, May will also promise greater powers for British police to access internet data.

Police and intelligence services would accrue greater access to details of when and where phone calls and emails are sent, but not their content.

US-led coalition against ISIL: Front for regime change

Listening to American and British leaders this week one would think that Barack Obama and David Cameron are knights in shining armor on an epic crusade to defeat global evil.

The campaign against IS is a front for the criminal agenda of regime change in Syria and the region. This real, criminal agenda should be exposed and condemned at every opportunity. To consort with this mob is to corrupt international law and morality.

Unbelievably, too many states seem to be going along with this ridiculous charade, as can be gleaned from the way Obama and Cameron’s posturing was indulged this week at the United Nations General Assembly.

Our final conclusion is this: Obama and Cameron are using simplistic moralizing rhetoric about “defeating evil” in order to: 1) conceal their own criminal legacy; 2) pressure the rest of the world into endorsing their presumed but ill-deserved authority; and 3) promote their criminal agenda of regime change under a moral cover.

The AngloZionist Empire is at War with Russia

Listening to Poroshenko a few days ago and then to Obama at the UNGA can leave no doubt whatsoever about the fact that the AngloZionist Empire is at war with Russia. Yet many believe that the Russian response to this reality is inadequate.Likewise, there is a steady stream of accusations made against Putin about Russia’s policy towards the crisis in the Ukraine.What I propose to do here is to offer a few basic reminders about Putin, his obligations and his options. First and foremost, Putin was never elected to be the world’s policeman or savior, he was only elected to be president of Russia. Seems obvious, but yet many seem to assume that somehow Putin is morally obliged to do something to protect Syria, Novorussia or any other part of our harassed world. This is not so. Yes, Russia is the de facto leader of the BRICS and SCO countries, and Russia accepts that fact, but Putin has the moral and legal obligation to care for his own people first.

Special Report: Scottish Referendum Rigged - The 'How' and the 'Why'

The change.org petition demanding a re-run of the Scottish referendum, "counted by impartial international parties", has now reached 93,000 signatures as incredulous reaction mounts to the highly dubious referendum vote. Even Ron Paul expressed extreme scepticism about the result. The British media, meanwhile, is having a field day mocking the viral video footage of suspect activity at counting venues across Scotland, laughing off the fact that the only international observers to report anything about how the referendum was conducted were Russian observers, and dismissing Scots' calls for recounts and fresh referenda as being "sour grapes" based on "conspiracy theories".

But are these 93,000 (mostly) Scottish citizens, and the thousands of Facebook users demanding an investigation, just deluded sore losers?

Mr Hemming told the Telegraph that warrants could be granted at the US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FISA) court, which sits in private, and MPs would not even know that their emails were being monitored.

"Why should the American security services be able to access to our MPs emails, when even the British security services cannot?" he asked.

"It is a great mistake for Parliament not to manage its own servers. This is an alarming vulnerability. MPs and their constituents should be aware that their communications are not secure."

As the UK prepares for another war in Iraq, is its strategy any more coherent than in 2003?

Britain is set to join the air campaign against Isis in Iraq, but, going by David Cameron’s speech to the UN General Assembly, the Government has no more idea of what it is getting into in this war than Tony Blair did in 2003.

Sep 27 20:42

David Cameron’s war plans against ISIS sound a lot like Tony Blair’s in Iraq.

Britain is set to join the air campaign against Isis in Iraq, but, going by David Cameron’s speech to the UN General Assembly, the Government has no more idea of what it is getting into in this war than Tony Blair did in 2003.

Mr Cameron says that there should be “no rushing to join a conflict without a clear plan”, but he should keep in mind the warning of the American boxer Mike Tyson that “everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth”.

The Prime Minister says that lessons have been learned from British military interventions in Iraq and Afghanistan but it is telling that he did not mention intervention in Libya for which he himself was responsible.

In fact, there is a much closer parallel between Britain joining an air war in Libya in 2011 than Mr Blair’s earlier misadventures which Mr Cameron was happy to highlight.

Secret state: Members of UK armed forces must notify press officers if they meet a journalist socially

New official guidelines impose strict controls on anyone from the armed forces making contact with journalists, even in a social setting.

The rules state that when a member of the armed forces has any contact with a journalist they must immediately notify press officers.

This applies even if a member of armed forces staff meets a journalist socially, or through their family.

The rules don’t just apply to journalists, they also apply if a soldier should accidently come into contact with any individuals who are known to have close links with the media – such as “academics, representatives of industry and think-tanks”.

ISIS and the USA: Expansion and Resistance by Decapitation

If the brutal decapitation and dismemberment of innocent civilians is a capital crime that should be punished, as I believe it is, then both ISIS and the Obama regime with his allied leaders should face a people’s war crimes tribunal in the countries where the crimes occurred.

In order to overcome massive US and world public opposition to new wars in the Middle East, Obama relied on the horrific internet broadcasts of ISIS slaughtering two American hostages, the journalists James Foley and Steve Sotloff, by decapitation. These brutal murders were Obama’s main propaganda tool to set a new Middle East war agenda – his own casus belli bonanza! This explains the US Administration’s threats of criminal prosecution against the families of Foley and Stoloff when they sought to ransom their captive sons from ISIS.

Air Strikes could begin within hours after MPs backed Government plans for a bombing campaign against "psycopathic" Isis terrorists in Iraq.

MPs voted 524 to 43 in favour of strikes after David Cameron said that Britain must take action against the “psychopathic terrorists”.

For now the air strikes will be limited to Iraq despite the Prime Minister saying that there was a “strong case” for extending the bombing to Syria.

Britain is set to join the air campaign against Isis in Iraq, but, going by David Cameron’s speech to the UN General Assembly, the Government has no more idea of what it is getting into in this war than Tony Blair did in 2003.

In fact, there is a much closer parallel between Britain joining an air war in Libya in 2011 than Mr Blair’s earlier misadventures which Mr Cameron was happy to highlight.

In Libya, what was sold to the public as a humanitarian bid by Nato forces to protect the people of Benghazi from Muammar Gaddafi, rapidly escalated into a successful effort to overthrow the Libyan leader. The result three years on is that Libya is in permanent chaos with predatory militias reducing their country to ruins as they fight each other for power.

Police 'told to limit child abuse probe into MP'

Derbyshire Chief Constable claims he was forbidden to arrest Labour man or search his home when he worked as a detective

Mr Creedon said he was ordered to limit his inquiries into the MP, now Lord Janner of Braunstone.

He was forbidden from arresting the politician or searching his home, despite ‘credible evidence’ that warranted further investigation.

The chief constable said the message was passed on by a superintendent, but he believes it came from higher up. ‘The decision was clear, he will be interviewed by appointment and there won’t be a search of his home, his constituency office or his office in the Commons,’ he said, adding: ‘It was a decision made by people more senior than me.’

‘Don't bomb Iraq & Syria!’ Stop the War protests at Downing Street

Anti-war activists have staged an emergency protest outside Downing Street on Thursday evening, after Prime Minister David Cameron said the UK is ready to “play its part” in airstrikes on ISIS targets in Iraq.

Hundreds of protesters lined the pavements outside Downing Street in London to protest potential British air strikes against targets in Syria and Iraq. The demonstrators chanted anti-war slogans and carried banners alongside a small police presence, with Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn making a speech.

"Why are we going into yet another war, into a region full of natural resources that the West so covets, using arms that we've sold to every regime in the region, proposing more arms, more bombs, more war," British MP Jeremy Corbyn told the crowd.

Power produced by wind turbines falls by a fifth despite hundreds of new turbines being built

Wind farms produced nearly a fifth less power in the second quarter of this year, despite the installation of hundreds of new turbines, because it wasn't as windy as usual.

Statistics published yesterday showed that the amount of electricity produced by offshore wind farms was down 22 per cent in the three months to June, compared with a year earlier.

And the same data showed almost as big a fall in output from onshore wind farms, down nearly 17 per cent. Both drops came despite huge amounts of new turbines brought online.

The Department for Energy and Climate Change said the reduction was down to unusually calm weather, 'with the impact of low wind speeds exceeding that of increased capacity.'

David Cameron warns world leaders of Isis's 'murderous plans to expand its borders' and pledges to take action

David Cameron has warned world leaders at the United Nations that the Islamic State, or Isis, harbours “murderous plans to expand its borders well beyond Iraq and Syria… and to carry out terrorist atrocities right across the world” and pledge concerted action by Britain, including air strikes, to thwart it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Not mentioned in this article is that Cameron basically said that anyone who questions the official story of 9-11 or 7-7, or claims Muslims are being persecuted, is supporting the terrorists. This is nonsense. I do not support the terrorists. I have never worked for Mossad!!!!!

Coalition of the Clueless in Syria

Takes a look at the 'Coalition of the Clueless' and tries to explain why Syria, Iran and Russia are being so low-key in their reaction to US airstrikes on Syrian territory. In a nutshell, this trio can afford to be opportunistic because they see this Coalition going nowhere fast.

The airwaves are still heaving with spin two days after US airstrikes against Syria.

Undoubtedly the attacks were timed to occur on the eve of the annual gathering of world leaders at the United Nations, so ‘Coalition’ partners could cluster behind the decision to bomb a sovereign state, uninvited.

The irony, of course, is that they are doing so at the UN – the global political body that pledges to uphold international law, peace and stability, and the sanctity of the nation-state unit.

The goal this week will be to keep the ‘momentum’ on a ‘narrative’ until it sinks in.

Households faced rising energy bills between mid-2013 and mid-2014 despite the cost of gas and electricity to the Big Six suppliers falling by up to 20 per cent.

Average domestic gas bills rose 3.5 per cent in April to June 2014 compared to the same period in 2013 - while the wholesale cost of gas paid by suppliers fell by 21 per cent.

Meanwhile, electricity bills rose 4.4 per cent while the cost of coal for power stations fell 12 per cent, the statistics from the Department of Energy and Climate Change revealed. Coal and gas produce nearly three fifths of the UK's electricity, the latest figures show, almost equally split.

MPs poised to vote for third campaign of military action in Iraq

Wary British MPs are expected to back military action in Iraq, as part of a daunting mission to destroy Islamic State (Isis) that the defence secretary Michael Fallon said could endure for as long as two to three years.

The Commons motion, agreed unanimously by the cabinet and due to be debated by MPs for seven hours , is couched in terms of protecting Iraq from the brutality of Isis and specifically excludes air strikes in Syria without a further Commons vote.

Fallon said the war would be “a long haul” and made little attempt to deny that Isis’s destruction may eventually, subject to another vote from MPs, require coalition action against Isis militants in Syria.

Britain’s involvement in the new Iraq war is a doomed and dangerous gesture

Nor should we be so intoxicated by war fever as to do the wrong thing. Iraq has been chief bomb target for western electoral machismo since Bill Clinton’s “Monica Lewinsky” air strikes in 1998. They initiated a decade of mendacity. Saddam Hussein’s weapons arsenal was declared eliminated, then it was not. After killing hundreds of civilians, Tony Blair and his cabinet declared that Iraq still posed “an imminent threat to Britain”. The subsequent war was said to have installed freedom and democracy in that country, another untruth. As the Royal United Services Institute concluded in a recent survey, far “from reducing international terrorism … the 2003 invasion [of Iraq] had the effect of promoting it”.

British jets ready to attack Isis within hours of Commons vote

RAF Tornado jets are expected to mount their first attacks against Islamic State (Isis) targets in Iraq within hours of a Commons vote on Friday sanctioning action.

The jets, based in Cyprus, were out over Iraq on Wednesday night gathering intelligence in preparation for the attack – an exercise that has been ongoing in the past month.

British special forces are already deployed to the region, primarily to gather intelligence and to help identify targets.

UAE court upholds sentence for tortured British student

A British student’s appeal against his sentence in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), based on a ‘confession’ extracted through torture, has been rejected.

Ahmad Zeidan (21), from Berkshire, was arrested on 13 December 2013 in the Emirate of Sharjah, which borders Dubai. He was beaten by police officers, hooded, stripped and threatened with rape, before being forced to sign documents in Arabic, a language he cannot read. Those documents were subsequently used against him in his prosecution on drugs charges.

Glasgow activists arrested for shutting down drone maker tied to Gaza slaughter

Ten activists were arrested after shutting down a Thales UK factory in the Scottish city of Glasgow on Tuesday to protest the company’s relationship with the Israeli military.

It was the first direct action by the Glasgow Palestine Action Network (GPAN), a newly formed group led by women, queer and trans activists with a history of supporting the Palestinian struggle.
Staged in response to Israel’s summertime military onslaught that killed more than 2,100 Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip, including more than 500 children, the action sought to protest “the UK economy’s ever growing military industrial cooperation with governments that flout international law,” GPAN explained in a press release.

West beats retreat in Ukraine

Quite possibly, the ice will be broken regarding Syria today at the meeting between Sergey Lavrov and John Kerry in New York. The New Cold war, which started with a bang, might be ending with a whimper.

Considering the huge lift that the White House gave last week to the visit by the Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko — ‘rare honor’ of addressing a joint session of the US Congress, et al — one would have thought the Barack Obama administration was getting into a heightened mood of belligerence vis-a-vis Russia. But a close reading of President Obama’s remarks after the bilateral meeting with Poroshenko last Thursday in Washington creates doubts in the mind.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has changed the way it measures our public finances, throwing fresh light on the precise state of the nation's coffers.

According to the figures, Britain's debt mountain is £127 billion bigger that we first thought. To provide some context, that's more than the government's annual budget for education and housing put together.

In total, the government owes its creditors £1.4 trillion as of this year.

The liabilities associated with Network Rail add £33 billion to the nation's debt pile. That's approximately the entire GDP of Uruguay.

Labour Party conference: 91-year-old campaigner Harry Smith steals show with impassioned welfare defence

A 91-year-old writer and campaigner was hailed as the Labour conference star speaker as he brought delegates to tears with recollections of poverty and premature death before the creation of the National Health Service.

Before the Second World War, he told the conference, hospitals and medical services had been for “the privileged few, because they were run by profit”.

He said: “My memories stretch back almost 100 years, and if I close my eyes, I can smell the poverty that oozes from the dusty tenement streets of my boyhood.”

Mr Smith said how his eldest sister, Marion, had wasted and died from tuberculosis at the age of 10 and was “dumped nameless into a pauper’s pit”. He also recalled the "anguished cries" of a woman dying from cancer who could not afford morphine.

Javid said almost 200,000 people were prosecuted in 2012-13 for failing to buy a TV licence, which costs £145.50 a year. “More than 50 were sent to prison. When over 10% of magistrates court cases concern this one offence, you have to ask whether the current system is really working,” he said.

Operation Tomahawk The Caliph

The Tomahawks are finally flying again – propelled by newspeak. 42 Tomahawks fired from a Sixth Fleet destroyer parked in Mare Nostrum, plus F-22s raising hell and Hellfires spouted by drones, that’s a neat mini-Shock and Awe to honor Caliph Ibrahim, aka Abu Bakr al -Baghdadi, self-declared leader of Islamic State.

What a mess. Al-Qaeda in Iraq is the embryo of ISIS, which turned into IS. Jabhat al-Nusra is the al-Qaeda franchise in Syria, approved by CEO Ayman al-Zawahiri. Both despise each other, and yet Khorasan holds the merit of bundling Caliph’s goons and al-Qaeda goons together. Additionally, for Washington Jabhat al-Nusra tend to qualify as “moderate” jihadis – almost like “our bastards”. Too messy?

British Home Secretary Theresa May must take action against the growing threat of violent Zionist extremists, says British lawmaker and Press TV host George Galloway. The Bradford West MP urged May to do so in a letter on Tuesday, saying the same measures used against terrorists must be applied to Zionist extremists.

Galloway also demanded adequate protection for people at risk of further attacks by Zionist extremists. The British lawmaker wrote the letter after a firebomb attack last week on Rabbi Ahron Cohen, an active campaigner against Zionism, outside his home in Salford, a metropolitan borough of Greater Manchester. Cohen’s car was destroyed after it was set on fire following a failed attempt to explode the fuel tank. Nobody was hurt in the attack.

Scottish Independence Vote Stolen, Massive Coverup Ensues, Usual Suspects ID’ed

Scotland’s Independence Could Not Be Permitted

Not only is Scotland a major player in the banking and commerce arena enjoyed by the UK around the globe, they also technically own much of the North Sea oil reserves which London uses to grease its many and diverse financial relationships. Were the UK to lose that single source of oil revenue, their whole economy would be in jeopardy.

How The Fight Over Oil Fueled Scotland’s Independence Vote

The collaterization of oil reserves alone provides a tremendous amount of financial muscle that the City of London would otherwise lack. In view of how much the UK has suffered economically since the Crash of 2008, it is clear the Crown could not weather another setback like Scottish independence.

“We the undersigned demand a re-vote of the Scottish referendum, counted by impartial international parties,” the petition reads. The online petition goes on to say that there were “countless evidences of fraud” in last Thursday’s vote count.

The petition, which has been published on the campaigns website Change.org, says that “Yes” votes were deliberately put into a “No” pile, and that there were “strange occurrences with dual fire alarms” in some voting centres, alongside “clear cut fraud in Glasgow”.

Donor blackmail Silences Criticism of Israel

Donor blackmail is the last front line for the Zionists as they continue to suffer defeats in the battle for public opinion.

Due to Israel’s brutal racism and repeated attacks on Palestinian civilians, it is losing popular support internationally. As this happens, the Zionists appear to be intensifying pressure on societal and political elites, particularly in the U.S. and other Western states, to maintain policies that support and protect Israel’s criminal behavior.

If you cannot win by debate, how do you combat the growing popular suspicion of Israeli and Zionist actions? You do it by pressuring the donor-dependent elite leadership of institutions, such as universities and colleges, to suppress and punish those who criticize Israel.

Their vehicle for achieving this goal has always been financial gifts and donations to elite individuals and institutions.

Celebrity sex abuse tapes theft: Massive police investigation launched into stolen interview tapes

Up to 50 testimonies were taken from the flat owned by a film-making firm contracted to the CPS.

It is thought a highly-organised criminal gang was behind the raid. Four police forces are involved in the investigation with officers travelling to Poland on the trail of the crooks.

Officers feared the tapes would be used for blackmail, or that they would be placed on the internet and even wreck future criminal trials .

The number of drones operating in British airspace has soared, with defence contractors, surveillance specialists, police forces and infrastructure firms among more than 300 companies and public bodies with permission to operate the controversial unmanned aircraft.

Operators of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) must apply to the Civil Aviation Authority to gain “permission for aerial work”, or face prosecution. An analysis of the latest CAA figures shows that numbers of authorised drone operators in the UK has risen by a third in the past year. This has prompted politicians and campaigners to call for a comprehensive review of civil drone use.

He said if the Scottish Parliament was given more powers until “you have a situation where you’re independent in all but name … “then presumably, you declare yourself to be independent”.

“Many countries have proceeded through that route,” he said in an interview with Sky News’ Murnaghan programme.

General ‘Breedhate’ in Another Sabotage Sortie

The irresponsible language of Four-Star General Breedlove in exacerbating the crisis makes one wonder if his name should not henceforth be known as General “Breedhate”.

US Air Force General Philip Breedlove strafed the renewed peace plan for Ukraine before it barely got off the ground at the weekend, thereby aiming to shoot down another political bid to end months of deadly violence in the country.

It’s not the first time that the NATO military chief has used high-flown rhetoric to preempt a diplomatic solution to end the fighting in war-torn eastern Ukraine. That conflict has claimed nearly 3,000 lives over the past six months, with up to one million civilians displaced and millions more trapped in a spiralling humanitarian crisis.

The simplicity of a referendum in which people are asked to place an X beside a simple Yes or No answer works great in a world where people can be assumed to be honest and to 'play by the rules'.

Arsonists torch car of Rabbi who spoke out over Israel's military action in Gaza

Arsonists have torched the car of a Rabbi who spoke out over Israel's military action in Gaza. Firebugs poured petrol over Ahron Cohen's Volvo estate before setting fire to the vehicle outside his home.
They first attached a makeshift fuse to the fuel tank, but when it failed to ignite they returned a few minutes later and used a can of petrol to start the fire.

Firefighters extinguished the blaze outside Mr Cohen's home in the early hours. No one was hurt but the car was destroyed. Police are now investigating the arson in Broughton, Salford, the latest in a series of attacks on Mr Cohen's house and car over seven years. The Volvo 940 has previously been scratched and had its windows smashed, while eggs have been thrown at his house.

Obama’s ‘stupid stuff’ turned upside down

So much hard work to pivot from GWOT (Global War on Terrorism) to the Big Boys in Eurasia. So little time – and competence. The Caliph’s goons have announced on the record they would go for beheading Putin. If only the Pentagon would subcontract the job.

First Obama promised there would be no ground troops to fight The Caliph – as in a re-invasion of Iraq. Then General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that if the current gambit of Obama’s self-defined “Don’t Do Stupid Stuff” foreign policy doctrine does not work – and it won’t – he’ll go for ground troops, embedded or otherwise.

On Ukraine, the Big Picture spells out the European Union mired in a horrendous crisis, under a third recession in five years, obviously without the cash, not to mention the will, to pay Ukraine’s humongous bills. Sooner – with negotiations starting this Saturday in Berlin – or later the EU will have to find an accommodation with Moscow to guarantee its precious gas supplies.

Obama Launches His War, Finally

Obama’s presidency has come full circle by reinventing the neocon dogmas it once professed to reject. On the pretext of fighting the IS, which the US and its allies created in the first instance, what is unfolding is a massive neocon project to remold the Muslim Middle East to suit the US’ geopolitical objectives. Call it by whatever name, it is an imperial war – albeit with a Nobel as commander-in-chief.

The US will pit Muslims against Muslims in a grim war through the deployment of ‘smart power’, which would ensure that American casualties are avoided.

The strategy is built on three pillars – firstly, setting well-defined limits to the actual American intervention in military terms, secondly, resuscitating the ‘regime change’ agenda in Syria and, thirdly, dispensing with any mandate from the United Nations. In essence, it becomes a repackaged version of the crudely unilateralist US intervention in the Middle East by the George W. Bush administration.

Stamford Hill council removes 'unacceptable' posters telling women which side of the road to walk down

A London council has removed “unacceptable” posters instructing women which side of the road they should walk down.

The signs, which have "Women should please walk along this side of the road only" written in both Hebrew and English, were spotted along Stamford Hill in Hackney.

Rosemary Sales, a councillor for Stamford Hill West, described the posters as “unacceptable” and said they had been taken down.

"Several residents in my ward in Stamford Hill have drawn these posters to my attention,” she told the Evening Standard.

"It is of course quite unacceptable to try to restrict women's movements in a public place and council officers removed these posters as soon as it was reported to them."

EU Official after referendum: "A Europe driven by self-determination of peoples … is ungovernable ”

The quote of the day today must be this one from Belgian EU Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht in the aftermath of the Scottish rejection of independence: “A Europe driven by self-determination of peoples … is ungovernable … ”

I don’t think he understands the implications of what he says, and I’m quite sure he completely misses out on the mastodont sized problem he – quite accurately despite himself- describes.

Which is something along the lines of ‘Europeans should stop wanting to make their own decisions, because that makes it hard for us in Brussels to make those decisions for them’.

Scotland voted No to independence. In answer to the question, ‘Should Scotland be an independent country?’, 1,617,989 voted Yes (44.7%) and 2,001,926 voted No (55.3%) in a massively impressive turnout of 84.6%: the highest ever anywhere in the UK in post-war times.

The result, and campaign, will be rightly mulled over and analysed for years, but in the fast moving aftermath it is important to lay down some thoughts and calm-headed thinking. Scotland has changed and shifted in how it sees itself and its future, as a political community, society and nation. Crucially, how others in the rest of the UK and internationally see Scotland, has dramatically and permanently moved.

Scotland Independence Referendum: Videos Claim Vote 'Is Definitely a Fix'

Disappointed 'Yes' voters across Scotland are reacting to the news that Scotland has voted No to independence with disbelief, as thousands claim the ballot was rigged in voting stations in locations such as Dundee and Edinburgh.

Stills from a broadcast on Sky News of Dundee polling station have been circulating widely on Twitter and Facebook this morning. The images apparently show a ballot paper clearly marked "Yes" in a pile allocated to No votes.

The image has led to allegations of electoral fraud and rigging in the historic elections, with Facebook users on the popular "Scottish Independence - Vote YES" page claiming the video shows the vote is "definitely a fix".

Scotland Vote Rigging Possible As Reports Leak Out

These are not the only cases of voter fraud however and others are sharing their stories and accounts of Scotland vote rigging and fraud on YouTube and other social media outlets.

This following video is titled, "Scotland Independence vote rigging exposed - Smoking Gun Evidence of vote being rigged!" In the video you can see the ballot papers that say, "Should Scotland be an Independent Country" with a simple Yes or No checkbox. In the video a woman is seen switching the pile of YES votes and shifting them into the NO pile of votes. It was assumed that this was changing the counts as people were still voting that they wanted Scotland to gain freedom from the United Kingdom.

Another instance shows that piles of votes on a table marked NO votes there were ballots on top that clearly had the YES box checked.

Clashes Erupt in Glasgow Square Following Pro-UK Vote

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The referendum did not fail, it was stolen. There are photos of YES ballots on the NO piles. There are videos of ballot counters slipping YES votes into the NO piles and even filling out blank ballots to add to the NO piles. The counting center in Dundee was evacuated twice when someone set off false fire alarms, leaving the ballots and ballot boxes totally unguarded. Children as young as three were registered to vote and and because no ID was required, YES voters showed up only to find NO votes had been cast using their names. And there were no exit polls to confirm the official result.

As Kennedy stated, when peaceful revolution becomes impossible, violent revolution becomes inevitable. The violence is the result of the Scots knowing their referendum was rigged to keep them slaves to Britain.

Staying together

Why did Scotland’s referendum fail? Would the establishment ever allow an independent Scotland? Is this the last time we will see a vote for independence in Scotland? Was the result of the referendum considered a success for the Scottish? Did this referendum pave the way for others – for example Catalonia?

We demand a revote be taken of said referendum, where each vote shall be counted by two individuals, one of whom should be an international impartial party without a stake in the vote.

Scots Independents Lose Vote but Win the Fight

The centuries-old UK may have been spared for now from imminent dissolution – at least on paper – but sweeping changes are nevertheless on the way, thanks to Scotland’s pro-independence movement.

Indeed, it could be said, the issues raised by the Scots of democratic accountability, more equitable economic policies, and more independence in international relations as opposed to subservience for example to NATO group think, all such issues resonate not just with “separatists” but to many ordinary citizens right across the EU.

The Spanish government in Madrid even threatened to veto an application to the European Union from an independent Scotland. That’s a measure of how concerned Madrid was taking the Scottish “contagion” spreading to its own borders.

Scots kiss goodbye to independence

Wallace and the Bruce left spinning in their graves

In a panicky move just 3 days before the Referendum the main party leaders in Westminster published a pledge on the front page of the Daily Record, a high-circulation Scottish tabloid based in Glasgow, in a last-throw bid to persuade Scots to vote ‘No’. This “vow” was signed by David Cameron, Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg. It promised “extensive new powers” for the Scottish Parliament delivered by a process starting immediately, i.e. today, and “opportunity and security for all by sharing our resources equitably”. The trio “categorically” promised that Scotland would have the final say on funding for the National Health Service, and the Barnett allocation for resources would continue.
