Vicious Tories 264


We do not have a parliamentary system which can hold a government with an absolute majority to account, even when that government only gained 37% of the vote. This is a salutary video for all of us, but particularly my fellow SNP members who think that being on House of Commons committees will make a big difference. Watch it from 16.32.30 where Paul Flynn starts to explore the links between Liam Fox, Adam Werritty and Matthew Gould. As he threatens to uncover hidden truths, he is shouted down by Tory MP Robert Halfon and forbidden from speaking by Tory committee chair Bernard Jenkin.

The Tories will be even worse in this parliament.

Halfon has today been promoted to Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party and given a seat in the Cabinet. He is a really nasty piece of work whose political career has been sponsored and financed by a very sinister figure named Poju Zabludowicz, who works closely with Mossad. It is appalling that Zabludowicz should be able to place his puppet into the centre of government, and shows yet again that money can buy power at Westminster, every time.

It is amusing that Cameron has been forced to put David Mundell into the Cabinet as Secretary of State for Scotland. Also interesting that in the present state of opinion Cameron was not able to put in a colonial governor from the Lords or an English constituency. But whatever else may be said in Mundell’s favour, nobody has ever described him as highly intelligent, I suspect not even his mum. So it will be interesting to see how he manages his extraordinarily sensitive brief.

Labour equally had no choice but Ian Murray – which means as a shadow cabinet member he will have to stop pretending he is opposed to Trident. As anti-Trident rhetoric was the thing that saved Murray (plus disgraceful media attacks on his SNP opponent), by forcing him to become pro-Trident Scottish Labour will make a strong bid to have no MPs at all.

    “That’s a straw man. The point is, unanswered questions relating to the official 9-11 Commission Report does not entitle conspiracy theorists to fill in the gaps with unsubstantiated “definitive” answers of their own.”

    So let’s have a full inquiry with power of subpoena and prove the conspiracy theorists wrong then.

    Why not?

    “Can trustees transfer to themselves property belonging to the beneficiary of a trust for no consideration?”

    I do not know. Doesn’t sound very likely, does it? I do not know if Janner’s children are trustees of his property. But I will have a little bit to say about the duties of an attorney in a moment.

    Kind regards,

    Thanks for the link. Peter Morrison was just one of many paedos during the Thatcher government (Thatcher gave the keys of Broadmoor to Jimmy Savile – you couldn’t make it up!).

    The Daily Mail is a strange entity (and one that should be prosecuted for hate speech). During this election campaign they ran a piece on one page saying that Labour would decimate the health service by spending more tax payer’s money on it, whilst on the opposite page decrying that under the coalition government waiting lists are longer.

  • lysias

    According to Reuters, the earthquake was 78 miles southeast of Morioka and at a depth of 20.5 miles. What does that say about the likelihood of a tsunami? It’s shallow earthquakes that cause the worst tsunamis, isn’t it?

  • lysias

    Uh oh, looks like Morioka is on the northeast coast of Honshu. That would put it near Fukushima, wouldn’t it?

    I suppose they could argue that in theory it could be decimated if, say, more tax payer’s money was spent on new PPI projects and executive pay increases as opposed to increasing the amount of front-line staff.

    “Acting under that power of attorney, Janner’s three adult children transferred ownership of his home, valued at around £2 million, to themselves in March last year.”

    That transfer would be in contravention of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 [section 12 (1)], unless the attorneys have applied to the Court of Protection for permission to make such an enormous transfer to themselves. Victims could have an easy remedy if such permission has not been granted. If the attorneys have applied for and received such permission, the Court of Protection may have been unaware that potential civil claims for damages might be made against Lord Janner for sexual abuse and/or assault. In that case, any victim could make an application to the Court of Protection to have the lasting power of attorney revoked on the grounds that the attorneys are not carrying out their duties correctly.

    Washington will never allow a new inquiry into the 9/11 cockups because it would show that CIA leaders like Tenet and Morrell cooked up the whole story about Saddam having WMD to hide how wrong they had been about the 19 suicide bombers – what they had hoped to catch red-handed as hijackers to get rid of the Taliban in Afghanistan for allowing Osama bin-Laden sanctuary there.

    And thank god that Morrison, Thatcher’s PPS, was running her re-election campaign in the absence of George Younger as Morrison made a complete mess of it, forcing her to resign, and in return, she gave him a knighthood to spite her tormentors.

    And I should stress that Indian Point is only 40 miles from downtown Manhatten:

    http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/NY-Indian-Point-Transformer-Explodes-Smoke-303187081.html

    And I should also stress that the explosion apparently occured with an electrical transformer, not with the reactor.

    Not that it makes much difference, because after Fukushima (the worst disaster in human history), and WIPP, and the forest fires at Chernobyl, cancer rates are going to go through the roof over the coming decades.

    This is my planet.

    I did not give a mandate for total scum to destroy it.

  • RobG

    Daniel, so what are you going to do with all the nuclear waste?

    I don’t have the figures to hand right now, but I believe it’s hundreds of tons every year, of the most toxic stuff ever created on this planet.

  • RobG

    And by the way, just about all western economies could easily go on to renewables (and in particular Scotland).

    I wonder why they don’t?

    Drill baby, drill.

  • Daniel

    “Daniel, so what are you going to do with all the nuclear waste?”

    Your inference is we don’t have choices. But this is wrong. The UK’s stockpile of nuclear waste could be used to generate enough low-carbon energy to run this country for 500 years.

    If the material we have seen until now as waste is instead seen as fuel, it has the potential to solve three problems at once:

    1) The UK’s contribution to climate change
    2) Possible future energy shortfalls and
    3) A significant component of the massive bill – and massive headache – associated with cleaning up the current nuclear mess.

  • Daniel

    “And by the way, just about all western economies could easily go on to renewables (and in particular Scotland).

    I wonder why they don’t?

    Drill baby, drill.”

    The argument ought to be centered on getting the mix right.

    Well it’s not like the 9/11 cockup is the only cockup that has been in need of a good government/media coverup. They both had some previous practice at the art of finessing cockup coverups with the earlier Oklahoma City bombing.

    The Secret Life of Timothy McVeigh – Corbett Report • 05/11/2015

    Timothy McVeigh. We’ve been told so much about him, the Oklahoma City bombing, and what it meant for America. But what if it’s all a lie? Join us today for this special Corbett Report podcastumentary as we examine the multiple trucks, multiple bombs, government informants, faked executions and other pieces of information suggesting that McVeigh was not a “lone wolf bomber” at all but a sheepdipped special forces operative working for the government, exactly as he claimed.

    More at: https://www.corbettreport.com/episode-305-the-secret-life-of-timothy-mcveigh/

    From The Secret Life of Timothy McVeigh:

    Multiple trucks. Multiple bombs. Government informants. Prior warnings. PATCON. John Doe Number 2. Andreas Strassmeir. The indications of government participation and cover up in the bombing itself continue to mount and mount. And they paint a very different picture of McVeigh than that of the lone wolf bomber that the government and media have spent 20 years asking us to believe in.

    But why? If there was government complicity in the plot to blow up the Murrah Building, why would this be so? What would the government stand to gain from this?

    Firstly, PATCON gained its objective of discrediting militias, gun rights groups, and those concerned about governmental overreach once and for all in the mind of the American public.

    Secondly, an ATF that had suffered a severe backlash from its mishandling of events at Ruby Ridge and Waco, could win public support and sympathy by parading as the victim of anti-government crazies.

    Thirdly, it provided new life to the Omnibus Counterterrorism Act of 1995, a controversial bill introduced by Joe Biden two months before the bombing that would have given police broad new powers to use secret sources and secret evidence in terrorism proceedings. Widely denounced as an affront to civil liberties, the bill was languishing in committee. But all that changed on April 19, 1995. The very day after the blast at the Murrah Building the New York Times wrote about the bill that “after the Oklahoma City bombing, there are few surer legislative bets in Washington.” The legislation morphed into the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996 and was passed the next year, with President Clinton specifically linking the bill to the bombing in his signing statement. Years later, Biden claimed that his original bill was the core of what eventually became the PATRIOT Act.

    Fourthly, the bombing also conveniently destroyed a number of documents that were proving to be problematic for the Clinton administration. Documents that had all somehow or other ended up being housed at the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City in April of 1995.

    But what about McVeigh? What was his role in all of this? Criminal mastermind? Convenient patsy? Unwitting dupe? Or sheep-dipped operative, exactly as he claimed to be?

    ” So let’s have a full inquiry with power of subpoena and prove the conspiracy theorists wrong then.

    Why not? ”

    Because it would be a waste of time and money. The tin-foil hat brigade would never admit they were wrong no matter how much proof you laid before them, they’d just whine “cover up”.

    Brendan O’neill is a sharp writer; the Guardianistas must hate every last drop of his testosterone:

    “…the real Two Britains. Which is, on one side, the Britain of the moral clerisy, which is pro-EU, multicultural, anti-tabloid, politically correct and devoted to welfarism and paternalism as the main means through which to govern the masses, and, on the other side, the Britain of the rest of the us, of the masses, of those people increasingly viewed by the cultural elite as inscrutable, incomprehensible, and in need of nudging, social re-engineering and behaviour modification.”

    I think ‘clerisy’ may become the word of 2015; or at least the title of Socialism’s epitaph: Too good to be true.

    Nothing in your response challenges my assertion but you did actually say “hope triumphs cynicism”. Priceless stuff.

    The SNP are fishing tory rebel waters. No Tory will be persuaded to rebel by an SNP MP. If some Tories do rebel the SNP will claim success. If no Tory rebels the SNP will say what heartless unreasonable English bastards! It’s bullshit PR politics as usual.
