Tory lies over the EU

con-eu-campign-spot-min
This is pretty awkward for the Prime Minister and his Remain campaign. The paving slabs let the cat out of the bag – the very same group of campaigners have just swapped a banner. Then shuffled around to pretend they are different people in a different city at a different time.

Resorting to recycling activists for photo ops betrays the lack of support for Cameron’s version of the EU. Perhaps because his Europe is one of tax avoidance, corporate hegemony and privatisation.

In 2013, he personally shielded offshore trusts – much like the one that benefited him – from an EU tax crackdown.

Meanwhile, he has always firmly supported the US-EU ‘trade deal’ the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), which would allow US giants to subvert our democracy in kangaroo courts while suing our governments for being perceived to inhibit profit. TTIP would also open up our public services to further privatisation.

David Cameron is planning a crackdown on free speech that could silence dissent

serveimage
David Cameron’s new crackdown, reportedly to be announced in the Queen’s speech, will see people silenced and free speech curtailed. According to Politics Home, the legislation will “include measures to gag individuals, close down premises and ban organisations”. Also, programmes perceived to contain “unacceptable extremist material” will be shut down by the UK’s broadcasting watchdog Ofcom, under the Extremism Bill.

Couple this with the government’s definition of ‘domestic extremist’ and the censorship could apply to literally anyone. According to the National Domestic Extremism and Disorder Intelligence Unit (NDEDIU):

Domestic Extremism relates to the activity of groups or individuals who commit or plan serious criminal activity motivated by a political or ideological viewpoint.’

Sounds reputable until you discover the government has redefined ‘serious criminal activity’ to suit its agenda:

‘That the conduct involves the use of violence, results in substantial financial gain or is conduct by a large number of persons in pursuit of a common purpose.’

The last part reads “a large number of persons in pursuit of a common purpose”. Combine that with “motivated by a political or ideological viewpoint” and you still couldn’t get much more vague. A student union fits that description. The Conservative party fits that description. Sunday mass fits that description. But importantly for the government, a demonstration against fracking, austerity or anything you can think of, fits that description.

Bombing achieves nothing

serveimage

It has not been proved that Syria has anything whatsoever to do with the terrible attacks in Paris the other week. The bombing of Iraq and Libya have proved beyond doubt that bombing achieves nothing but innocent civilian deaths. The west needs to stop arming ISIS as a proxy war against Syria. The proxy war against Syria has caused the refugee crisis and bombing the country can only make the situation much worse. (Forsooth)

Bombing achieves nothing.

David Cameron and Syria – A Tale of Deception and Hypocrisy

serveimage73NURXDH
David Cameron wanted to bomb Syria two years ago but suffered a humiliating defeat in a vote before Parliament. Let us be clear about one thing: if Cameron and others had got their way two years ago, the so-called Islamic State and a range of Jihadi groups would be in control of Syria today.

And if ‘control’ is too strong a word, it would be in as much chaos as Libya is today. The Libyan enterprise by NATO to overthrow Gaddafi was firmly backed by Cameron who used British Special Forces to train and guide Islamist rebels in attaining this objective.

After the chemical attack in Ghouta, a dubious event which was likely perpetrated by either Saudi or Turkish intelligence in order to provoke President Obama to make good on his ill-fated assertion about “red lines”, the idea was to bomb and ‘degrade’ the capabilities of the Assad government which the West and its Middle East Sunni allies were keen to blame.

Now Cameron wants to bomb Islamic State insurgents.

A few British fighter jets have been part of the patently phony war waged against Islamic State for over a year by the US and its Middle East allies. The Russian effort in two months has shown this to be the case.

Need it be reminded that it was Cameron who one day was supporting the Mubarak regime and then when it was toppled, visited the newly installed junta to sell it military weapons.

But it is not only about the hypocrisy of Cameron the man and politician. It is about the hypocrisy and double-dealing of the Western powers specifically in regard to Syria and generally to the Middle East and North Africa geo-political theatre.

The turmoil in Syria was the creation of the Western powers acting in concert with Turkey and the Sunni Gulf monarchies who seek to overthrow the secular government of Bashar al Assad. This is the bottom line reason why the Islamic State and other Jihadi groups have grown so powerful.

But after the tragedy of Paris, Cameron is confident that the United Kingdom’s public outrage along with the media’s whipping up of the drums of war will get him the Parliamentary rubber stamp to intervene in a conflict which according to former French foreign minister, Roland Dumas, was planned and orchestrated years in advance by British officials along with other Western powers.

‘No confidence in Cameron’ petition is rejected by Parliament

David Cameron
After civil servants found excuses to remove more than 6,000 names from a petition calling for a vote of no confidence in UK prime minister David Cameron, the Commons Petitions committee has refused to debate it anyway.

The committee said it doesn’t have the power to schedule debates on motions of no confidence. Oh, really?

Didn’t the same committee schedule a debate on a no-confidence motion against health secretary Jeremy Hunt, in the Westminster Hall, on September 14 this year – after receiving an e-petition with around 220,000 signatures, calling for it?

The petition against Cameron has been signed by more than 188,000 people – almost twice as many as the 100,000 necessary to secure consideration for a debate in Parliament.

If you want Muslims to identify with Britain, don’t demonise and bomb them

cameron_speech_460

IN HIS Birmingham speech about how to get Muslim people to identify with Britain, David Cameron announced nothing but further attacks on Muslims at home and abroad.

Given the Tories’ track record it is no surprise that his five year plan to deal with Islamic extremism at home pins all the blame on the Muslim community. Muslims, apparently, have not integrated sufficiently and they have allowed ‘extremist voices’ to dominate ‘within Muslim debate’.

The conclusion? A further clampdown on Muslim’s civil liberties is necessary in order to get them to identify more fully with British values of tolerance, democracy and free speech. The argument that ‘non-violent extremism’ can lead to ‘violent extremism’ opens the door to Orwellian levels of surveillance and harassment. Watch out. The world of thought crime is now with us.

Most of the speech was spent denying a connection between ‘radicalisation’ and Muslim’s ‘historic grievances’. The reason is simple; not content with demonising domestic Muslim communities, he is trying to clear the way for escalating the bombing campaign against Syria, a campaign it now turns out he has already started in secret and against the will of parliament.

Perhaps Cameron himself needs to integrate more with the British people. He is hardly one of us and he is certainly not in it together with us.

Heckler Explains Why She Interrupted David Cameron

Last night on UK television we had a debate from all our party leaders in the run up to the General Election on the 7th May 2015. A heckler from the audience did not agree with the lies and voiced Her opinion (brilliant). The 99% need to take back the power from the liars and cheats that try to control us. Government’s support corporations and not the people who elected them, this needs to stop.

British Killing Trend – U.K. Foreign Policy Limited to “Humanitarian” Pro-War Choices

lotfi_morteza20110906134003280

News that 2015 might turn out to be the first year since 1914 when British troops will not be fighting a war somewhere in the world appeared to come as a shock to many. But in fact, the British record of Permanent War stretches back much further. Seumas Milne commented in the Guardian that empire forces ‘were involved in violent suppression of anti-colonial rebellions every year from at least the 1760s for the next 200 years, quite apart from multiple other full-scale wars’.

One might think a rational society would try to identify and counter the institutional forces responsible for hundreds of years of continuous war. Basic questions could be asked: Who actually shapes foreign policy? What are their goals? How much influence does the public really have? In our society, as we have noted, defence issues are barely mentioned at election time, while foreign policy options among the major parties are limited to pro-war choices.

If the great and good of politics, academia and media are to be believed, there is nothing to discuss, UK policy has always been guided by humanitarian values. Winston Churchill described ‘the reputation of the British empire as a valiant and benignant force in the history of mankind’.

We’re being dragged into a new Cold War by a puffed-up bullfrog (and I don’t mean President Putin)

84246679_Cameron_131840c

Our Prime Minister is puffing himself up like a bullfrog, and busily creating a new Cold War that will benefit nobody except spies and weapons-makers, for a cause he doesn’t understand and can’t explain, writes Peter Hitchens

Stupidity and ignorance rule the world. The trouble is that the stupid and the ignorant think that they are clever and well-informed.

Take Mrs Hillary Clinton, next President of the United States and former chief of American foreign policy. She has directly compared Russia’s Vladimir Putin to Hitler. And she has compared events in Crimea to the Czech crisis of 1938.

Dozens of other politicians and grandiose journalists are currently doing the same.

It’s the one thing they think they know about history – that Britain’s pathetic Neville Chamberlain didn’t stand up to evil Adolf Hitler in 1938 at Munich over Czechoslovakia, so making Hitler believe that he could take over the world. And that the brave Winston Churchill then saved the world.

Almost no part of this legend is true. Even those bits that are true are misleading, with one exception. Hitler was certainly evil. But so was Stalin, the communist mass-murderer who ended up as our main ally in the fight against Hitler.
