Assange Judge’s Husband Runs Security Firm With Ex Head of MI6 1235

“Security Intelligence Consultancy” SC Strategy Ltd has only three directors. One is the husband of the judge in yesterday’s Assange ruling. One is the former Head of MI6, Sir John Scarlett, who is synonymous with crooked security operations and personally wrote the notorious dossier of lies on Iraqi WMD, thus causing the subsequent deaths of millions of people. One is Lord Carlile, who was notably close to protected Establishment paedophiles Greville Janner and Cyril Smith. Is the British Establishment not endlessly fascinating?

The corporate media has published no information about “Lady” Arbuthnot’s background and sinister links at all, despite the fact it is uniformly carrying her jibes at Assange as a major story. There can be no clearer example of the fact that it is the corporate media which, deliberately and systematically, spreads fake news, while bloggers get out the actual facts via social media.

To anyone to whom British corruption is not axiomatic, it appears pretty rum that the judge in the Assange case is married to a government parliamentarian and close to the security services.

“Lady” Arbuthnot’s Husband

There is some interesting background in the Mirror here. The taxpayer paid £1,200 in restaurant bills for “Lady” Arbuthnot and her husband in one long weekend jaunt to Turkey alone.

If anybody thinks the Assange case had anything to do with justice, they are very mistaken. Please read my analysis of “Lady” Arbuthnot’s judgement here.

          Of course if it’s a bridge built by an SNP Government it will have to be built not a day over schedule, not a pound over budget and will have to uniquely be devoid of any need for snagging work. Or else it’ll be SNP Baad from the MSM.

      I don’t see this ever happening but if they do build a bridge they would surely also have to improve the awful roads that go to Stranraer.

        Yes Stu, I agree the infrastructure leading up to the bridge would also need to be upgraded.

        Everything comes at a price, Ben. That’s why it took to this century to repay the USA the money we borrowed from them in WWII. They made a pretty profit… perhaps would have made more, if it wasn’t for that ‘special relationship ‘! ?

        • fred

          Yes we paid the price. Somebody ought to tell those EU negotiators that. Show them those rows of white tombstones in Normandy as well and tell them we paid already, we don’t owe Europe a thing, Europe still owes us.

          That’s why it took to this century to repay the USA the money we borrowed from them in WWII

          There’s an important point here. We didn’t borrow money from the USA. We borrowed money from bankers which were nominally based in the USA. Those same bankers lent money to the USA to fund their part in WW11. They also funded Germany.

          The Allies didn’t win WW11 – the bankers did. And their reward wasn’t money, it was tighter control over 2 continents. And we’ll still be paying them long after we pay back our financial debt.

          • JOML

            Node, we did have ‘news’ a few years ago, saying we had finally paid the US and Canada back… and I know what you are saying about ‘banks’, but I’m confused about how we take these ‘banks’ to account, if they’re not a country (or perhaps I do…?).

            I’m confused about how we take these ‘banks’ to account, if they’re not a country

            You’ve put your finger on it. We can’t bring them to account because they are not a country. In the first half of the 20th century, a common topic of debate was how to stop the international bankers taking control of your country. Googling “quotes bankers control money supply” will bring up a list of concerned world leaders, right up to J F Kennedy’s speech shortly before his assassination. Speaking about “a free and open society”, he said :

            For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.

            Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.”

            Round about then, control of the money supply ceased to be a topic of open debate and got tagged with the ‘conspiracy theory’ label, and presidents, prime ministers, tsars, and economists stopped saying it was the single most important factor in maintaining a nation’s control over its own destiny.

            You’re not going to accept this stuff just because I rant on about it. We’re all on our own journeys, trying to make sense of a morass of illusion and deception. None of us see enough of the big picture to fully understand, so our world models are formed from the fragments of insight we individually happen to accumulate. Yours are different from mine so your world model is different from mine.

            We pick up clues from each other. If a clue chimes enough with our existing world model, we’ll provisionally include it, and if subsequent clues are consistent with this new idea, we eventually integrate it into our world model. Here’s a clue from me to you – bear it in mind, check it for consistency with your world model, then integrate or discard it :

            The history of the last two centuries makes much more sense if you picture bankers as the prime movers behind every war,

            BTW,one thing we can surely agree on : Tulloch and Wyvis are pants.

            While JFK was undoubtedly referring to the bankers in the quote above, he didn’t actually say so. Just to hammer my point home, here are some specific examples. The link at the end supplies dozens more.

            Question : if every world leader back then spoke so passionately about it’s importance, why is control of the mony supply NEVER discussed by today’s politicians?

            “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks…will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered…. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.” . . . “Paper is poverty. It is the ghost of money and not money itself.”– Thomas Jefferson, 1743-1826

            “When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes… Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain.” – Napoleon Bonaparte, 1769-1821

            I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me and the bankers in the rear. Of the two, the one at my rear is my greatest foe. – Abraham Lincoln

            “The division of the United States into federations of equal force was decided long before the Civil War by the high financial powers of Europe. These bankers were afraid that the United States, if they remained in one block and as one nation, would attain economic and financial independence, which would upset their financial domination over the world. The voice of the Rothschilds prevailed… Therefore they sent their emissaries into the field to exploit the question of slavery and to open an abyss between the two sections of the Union.” – Otto von Bismarck, German chancellor, 1865

            “Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce. And when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate.” – President James Garfield, 1881. He was assassinated just weeks after making this statement.


          • Node

            I’ve always believed war was about profit

            But not financial profit – they do it for control. The banks literally make money. They create it out of thin air. They don’t need any more.

            The bankers don’t do it for money. They gain control with money.

          • fred

            “While JFK was undoubtedly referring to the bankers in the quote above”

            He was obviously talking about Communism and freedom of the press if you read the entire speech and consider it was given at a dinner for journalists two weeks after the Bay of Pigs affair.

            For the facts of the matter are that this nation’s foes have openly boasted of acquiring through our newspapers information they would otherwise hire agents to acquire through theft, bribery or espionage; that details of this nation’s covert preparations to counter the enemy’s covert operations have been available to every newspaper reader, friend and foe alike; that the size, the strength, the location and the nature of our forces and weapons, and our plans and strategy for their use, have all been pinpointed in the press and other news media to a degree sufficient to satisfy any foreign power; and that, in at least in one case, the publication of details concerning a secret mechanism whereby satellites were followed required its alteration at the expense of considerable time and money.

            It’s about Communists.

            Read the entire speech.


          • Node

            He was obviously talking about Communism and freedom of the press ….

            Yes, you’re right. I realised after I’d posted that quote that of all the dozens I could have chosen, that one was inappropriate. That’s why I followed it with a few more pertinent ones. But I shouldn’t have said “JFK was undoubtedly referring to the bankers.” I got carried away.

            Just out of interest, what do you think of my main point : that bankers control nations, including US and UK, through their power to issue money; that the US fought for decades to prevent the banks taking this power; that the very fact that this subject is no longer discussed is sinister?

          Unsurprisingly, immediately after the coup or whatever you want to call it, Ukraine;s gold reserves were spirited out to Germany; whether they stayed there, or remained in Germany as part of the gold reserves of Germany held by the US which the US had refused to even let the Germans look at in the US, and were repaying in drips, I don’t know.
          So of course Ukraine is broke, as well as being Fascist. But arms? No prob – Uncle Sam will provide ’em, for the resources of their country.

    Do Bonkers Tory Brexiteers not understand that cameras, drones and electronic tags on remote country lanes in Ireland will be just as unpopular as pill boxes with armed police? The present situation is that details of vehicles taxed in Ireland are not immediately accessable by UK police. In order to make them mutually accessable you will have to mutually, physically police the borders, otherwise you will get partisan abuse. The border was not created by local people – it was created by politicians in London. anything which increases the presence of the border will increase resentment against the creators of the border, but British politicians have never admitted the colonial legacy of their forebears, never apologised and never made good.

  • John Goss

    We’re all moaning about the cold spell but imagine being in Ukraine with no gas! Gasprom has suspended supplies. There has been a weird ruling in Sweden from the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce that Gasprom should pay its Ukrainian supply outlet Naftogaz $4.63 billion. Gasprom says that Ukraine has been illegally stealing gas. Two days ago Poroshenko was talking about seizing Gasprom’s assets. Today the twat’s talking about schools, universities and other educationa communes being closed until March 6.

    Anybody following the gas saga cannot help but notice that last year a UK court ruled that Ukraine should pay the £3 billion it owed Russia for past gas usage in easy payments of a £1 billion per year. Poroshenko refused to pay. But this was a proper court and the debt was Eurobonded (backed by the Rothschilds) so it has some substance behind it.

    It seems quite clear that some manipulation by certain players behind the scenes in Sweden (remember those US puppets who stuffed up Assange?) has come up with a way for Ukraine to get free gas from Russia since the award by the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (whatever that is) more than covers Ukraine’s debts to Russia. Unfortunately for Ukraine this ‘debt’ does not have the high and mighty bankers’ obligations to pay. Furthermore Russia has its hands on the taps (apart from the ones Ukraine inserted to steal gas from Gasprom). Another aspect is that a large volume of gas to Europe goes through Ukraine. It cannot be long before the chocolate lard merchant is on his knees begging. How Porky Poroshenko intends to pay the $12.1 billion it owes the IMF for loans is beyond me. Poroshenko is up for election next year.

    Meanwhile the poor people of Ukraine (the poorest country in Europe) are again the sufferers. Is it not always so?

    • Tony_0pmoc

      Sorry, That was a Brilliant post John – even if exceedingly predictable. I said to my wife yesterday, whilst coming home through the snow… I am amazed that Putin hasn’t turned off the taps to us in Europe. We have been saying such horrible things to The Russians. She says’ what that Williamson bloke – I know his wife. He’s a puppet…Do you remember when you got on stage and were hypnotised..Yes…Didn’t the kids and me all laugh..Yeh but I had been hypnotised, I was up on stage and i had to entertain the audience. They were mostly kids. I had to play the puppet -and they all cheered (I really had been hypnotised) it wasn’t a magic trick (well it was really) and I was the last person, I thought i could be done to -but it was all good fun. No one was harmed. I may have looked like a fool, but I didn’t mind it..All the kids were smiling.

    Young People, The Milleniuals who are increasingly taking control, don’t understand or care, that us old folk really liked our powerful 1600watt vacuum cleanerd, and our extremely powerful on Number 11 Rock Music 9despite the fact that we can’t stand most of your sh1t

    So now – according to your EU regulations, us Mums and Dads cant buy a vacuum cleaner over 900 watts that sucks.

    the only reason you thought your bedroom was occasionally clean was not because you occasionally used a vacuum cleaner..and now you have banned all the powerful ones that work…

    Not only that, your EU, has seriously limited the volume, thay you snowflakes might hear..whilst some of you may have hacked that, so you can hear it Really Loud, such that us old Rockers might complain..all you do for us old folk is suggest hearing aids. Whilst I could, would and have, i would prefer you kids to talk louder and make some sense.

    Today, I ordered a powerful vacuum cleaner (refurbished, second had, cheap) and above the official EU noise and power limit..

    We can clean up your kid’s messes in half the time, and use less than half the power (by using twice the power in less than half the time)

    You EU programmed kids didn’t think of that, so then you came up with the low energy T-pot / Kettles

    The advantage of this at work, if you didn’t go outside and smoke, with the real quality…you could chat arround the kettle for so long – oh come on – lets go in the storeroom for a cuddle

    Which is all very well, but I wanted to get back to work. I just wanted a cup of coffee. I didn’t want sex too.

    That’s Low Energy Kettles for You – and Vacuum Cleaners – imposed on us by The Lunatics is The EU.

    Haven’t you young people got anything better to do..except stand around waiting for your mums to vacuum and clean your bedrooms?

    Have you ever tried cooking your own food – or mowing the grass..or even growing your own food?

    It’s not that hard.

    Your Mum and Dad still do it.

    And We are still Here.


  • Tony_0pmoc

    My dad was never sure, and when I was about 17, he said, they will all have gone soon. My mum knew I wasn’t gay, and she also knew she wasn’t going to make a Roman Catholic Priest out of me..

    When I finally thought it was safe, she was seriously shi1tting herself…Do I really have to meet your Mum?

    My Mum was just so completely lovely with her…they both got on so well

    So we stayed the night…

    She had already made up our double bed…

    We weren’t expecting that. We had to sleep in single beds at her Mums

    So we invited our Mums to come on holiday with us…and they did.

    China’s sending a significant amount of humanitarian aid to Syrians
    “During recent months, a great many Chinese businessmen have come to Damascus so that they could evaluate the potential for them to invest in reconstructing Syria.”

    Well that is wonderful news, which will put Mrs May’s Foreign, Defence and Financial advisors noses well out of joint. The aggressor should never be able to benefit out of their aggression. Surely her long experience in the Home Office , her Christian upbringing and her Feminism, should have taught her that. Looks like she’s not even going to get crisps.

They can’t think things through to their logical conclusion because they have never set foot in the real world.

      The longevity of the Mosaic Faith, 3,500 years, means that if you believe in God and you believe in prophecy, you have to ask why God has been silent for 3.5 millennia. During this time a lot of stuff has happened. Why would one not question the legitimacy of this faith after three and a half millennia? I find it incredible that a community that says it believes in God and prophecy can not believe in the testimonies of both their expected Messiah, and the last messenger, foretold in their ancient scriptures.

      Off topic ,but a world changing scenario in the Military balance of power has just occurred.
      Vladimir Putin in an address to the Russian Federal Assembly has unveiled new weapon systems which in effect make the US anti -ballistic systems redundant. Also their 11 Carrier groups are now just floating coffin ships.This news has been downplayed in the MSM, but rest assured the Pentagon and NATO have just been de-fanged.
      It would appear that Vlad has been playing for time, all the while absorbing the many provocations ,sanctions and humiliations from the West. I believe he was heading off a 1st strike option being considered by the looney psychopathic neo -cons of Washington.
      Probably he has not revealed all, as Russia has advanced EMP weapons ,which were demonstrated during Trumps attack on the Shaykan airbase in Syria ,where only 40% of US missiles got thru’, also the frying of the Aegis control system of the USS Donald Cook

          It would be quite a task to build a Faraday cage over the nation-wide electricity grid. Perhaps they could pull them all down and replace with shielded wires, but the voltage that they carry would make necessary a very high degree of insulation.
          Then the Russkis leaked their plans for a 100-megaton bomb, to be exploded in the Atlantic from a submarine, that would engulf the Eastern seaboard of the US with a massive Tsunami. No reason they couldn’t do it on the Western seaboard as well. Then a nuke on Las Palmas would speed up the inevitable:
          ‘Hollywood fantasy? Tidal wave disaster is just waiting to happen’:

          But it might not even take a nuke – it might be possible to cause it from the upper atmosphere, via HAARP-like technology (as was suspected of having been used to trigger the Haiti earthquake.

    We were in Cyprus last October. I wasn’t expecting much of anything to work, so took 3 different sim cards with me. To be honest, one of them worked really well. We were at a Rock Festival. Barcelona was the Year Before…

    Craig Murray found it hard to believe. The Spanish Police who turned up en mass on a Cruise Ship, and moored it up in Barcelona Harbour, were Extremely violent to The Catalans, we had met the previous year.

    All they wanted was their Independence from Spain. They were incredibly peaceful, despite the most atrocious provocation from the Spanish Government, and the local police and fire brigade tried to defend them.

    Craig Murray saw how The EU reacted to what was going on, and he totally changed his mind…according to what he wrote. I remember the details, and I’m sure they are all still there.

    So why does Scotland want to remain a part of The EU?

      To protect our fishing industry, the EU stopped British fishermen depleting stock beyond recovery. To protect our agricultre industry, Scotland relies heavy on EU grants due to hill farming on land not arable enough.

      To receive and pass on info to Interpol and the EU security agencies, including the EAW. To be part of EU medical break throughs, scientific break throughs and EU educational circles.

      To protect workers rights laid down by EU laws.

      I could go on but I think you get the jist of it.

        I voted against remaining in the EU because of Voltairenet Meyssan’s ongoing thesis that German politicians like Volker and Feltman are responsible for terrorising Syria with Al Qaida.
        The theme was repeated a fortnight ago on his website:
        The Middle East as seen by Berlin.
        ” Since the Cold War, it ( Germany ) has housed and supported several headquarters for the Muslim Brotherhood, including that of the Syrians in Aix-la-Chapelle. Germany took a part in the assassination of ex-Prime Minister of Lebanon, Rafic Hariri [7]. In 2012, it co-wrote the Feltman plan for the total and unconditional capitulation of Syria [8]. At present, Volker Perthes, director of the Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik, the state think-tank, is advisor to Jeffrey Feltman at the UNO.”

        My first father-in-law who flew in a Spitfire and spent 2 years in a German POW camp sometimes advised me that my imagination would never be able to encompass the comprehensive evil of the German mindset. Thierry Myessan opened my eyes to the reality of what I was unable to imagine, the ongoing holding to ransom of the Syrian people to be re-indoctrinated into a form of fascist Islam
        that they have never encountered in 1400 years of Muslim belief.

        Brexit has been hijacked by the MSM as a war of posh intellectuals Johnson and Rees-Mogg. Trump gave a pretty convincing performance of dissing Merkel and touching May, while underneath the political reality is that the US Republican ultra right wing’s special relationship with Germany, through the UN, makes our special relationship look like a lost dream.

        Ask a Greek or ask a Catalan. I think you will find that Scottish Independence after Brexit, in a scenario where England has left Europe, will be bankruptcy for Scotland and US nukes where UK nukes used to live. The ping pong match between you, Fredi and reel guid is important because Scotland is part of a UK that is undergoing Brexit. It show us how narrow infatuation with local trivia can allow the main purpose of Brexit, i.e. to wrest ourselves from German totalitarianism, to go completely unnoticed. Sorry if that comes across as rude, but it is my sincere belief.

          Of course the EU has its faults, I’d be surprised if it didn’t. However in my opinion it does more god than harm.

      • Kempe

        The ECHR is nothing to do with the EU. It comes under the control of the Council of Europe which is a different organisation entirely.

        Likewise Interpol was founded in 1924, a long time before the EU, and currently has 192 member states; the majority of which are not EU members!

        EU fisheries policy has been a disaster that has made the situation worse. Forcing fishermen to dump thousands of tonnes of dead fish back into the sea every year is not a viable conservation policy.

        I could go on but I think You get my jist.

        • Republicofscotland

          As for fishermen dumping fish, well they shouldn’t be exceeding their quotas. That’s exactly what caused fish stocks to crash the last time.

          The greedy fishermen would’ve carried on catching fish until certain stocks were gone such as cod. The EU saved the UK industry.

          However UK fishermen resent the EU saving their livelihoods god knows why. Probably because the greedy fishhermen bought bigger and bigger boats on HP, and when stocks collapsed they were left with huge debts.

          Even then the EU gave them a payment to decommission their boats.

          The majority of fishermen voted to leave the EU, they’ll regret that decision, in the not too distant future in my opinion.

      Entente cordial ala Tony, the Scots will be pleased by all this nonchalance and steely eyed unionist desperation to keep you all in line.

      fact is the Tory’s have busted the union once and forever. They ignored what Wales and Scotland wished to have included in Tony’s ‘uncertainty rock concert’, he can hear swan songs from Scotland, picks and chooses his warm countries for recreational soul recharging.

      He sounds posh and middle class, but he is ploughing away to keep the busted union intact by spreading his lovw talk. And what better than to do it with a little borrowing from the Sun.

      ‘ So why does Scotland want to remain a part of The EU? Are you Scottish as mad as The Americans.? Us English won’t beat the sh1t out of you, but The Germans will.’

      Try harder Tony, as much as we do like your story telling from the chalk face, there is no need to degrade yourself with trash talk here. Whatever has crawled over your liver last night?

    Last time I looked, Craig Murray was a staunch supporter of Scottish independence. If you are not interested in independence-related posts from RoS and reel guid, scroll passed them. Many others are interested in their posts. If you want a personal, bespoke blog, then I’m afraid you’re going to have to start your own.

    • Tony_0pmoc


      Which part of my post was not about Independence? I found your response, somewhat aggressive. Are you Scottish? Craig Murray is English. I’m more Scottish than him (well close).

        Sorry, Tony – my post was for Sharp Ears and Glenn_nl, who are complaining about the posts from RoS and reel guid. In no way was it meant for you and I should have made that clear.

          Just fyi, My wife and I got married in Scotland. All my Mum’s family come from Scotland. My Dad went to a public school in Scotland, and yet, we were all born in England. Whilst some of you Scottish, might hate us English, we stil rather like you.

          We realise, its not your fault to have been born on The Scottish side of the border. Why do you slag us off for being born on The English side?


          • JOML

            Tony, I don’t hate or slag off any nationality and think you’ve completely misinterpreted my post. I couldn’t care less where people come from and would always support anyone’s right to self determination. Here’s an excellent song from a great Englishman, who’s views I’m very much aligned too.

    ‘U.S. Banks on Diplomacy With North Korea, but Moves Ahead on Military Plans’:

    ‘…Commanders who attended the exercise in Hawaii were told that roughly 10,000 Americans could be wounded in combat in the opening days alone. And the number of civilian casualties, the generals were told, would likely be in the thousands or even hundreds of thousands.
    The potential human costs of a war were so high that, at one point during the exercise, General Milley remarked that “the brutality of this will be beyond the experience of any living soldier,” according to officials who were involved….’

    Not good news….

        I’m sure South Korea, China, Russia and Japan will appreciate being doused with wind-borne radio activity.
        Even if the US doen’t use nuclear weapons, the destruction of North Korea’s nuclear plants would spread massive radiation.
        Plus North Korea would use it’s nukes on the basis ‘Use them or lose them’. again not being very acceptable to South Korea, Japan and US forces in South Korea and Japan.

    ‘Recruited by MI5: the name’s Mussolini. Benito Mussolini
    Documents reveal Italian dictator got start in politics in 1917 with help of £100 weekly wage from MI5’: ed-mi5-italy#
    ‘…Archived documents have revealed that Mussolini got his start in politics in 1917 with the help of a £100 weekly wage from MI5.
    For the British intelligence agency, it must have seemed like a good investment. Mussolini, then a 34-year-old journalist, was not just willing to ensure Italy continued to fight alongside the allies in the first world war by publishing propaganda in his paper. He was also willing to send in the boys to “persuade” peace protesters to stay at home.
    Mussolini’s payments were authorised by Sir Samuel Hoare, an MP and MI5’s man in Rome, who ran a staff of 100 British intelligence officers in Italy at the time.
    Cambridge historian Peter Martland, who discovered details of the deal struck with the future dictator, said: “Britain’s least reliable ally in the war at the time was Italy after revolutionary Russia’s pullout from the conflict. Mussolini was paid £100 a week from the autumn of 1917 for at least a year to keep up the pro-war campaigning – equivalent to about £6,000 a week today.”…’

    And now the US uses Ethiopian military as their proxies in neighbouring countries.

      Trump “You never know until you’re tested.” Modern rifles cut a line of bullets , like the bump stock, which will dissect you. Local police said at the time that the security guard was technically out-gunned. Question is whether President Trump, who like New Labour and Thatcherist Monetarism, inherited all the blow-back from years of his predecessors violence and stupidity, excessive borrowing and false propaganda, will now acknowledge his bum hand and concede global hegemony to China, Russia and Islam.
      “You never know until you’re tested.” You are being tested right now, Donald. Action!

    Are you talking about microwave ovens or generators of malicious microwave premature ageing, the perfect weapon to use in disagreements with your neighbours. I have used tinfoil under the wallpaper + of course tinfoil hats. And yes, the bonkers Islamists are capable of it, but my personal eyesight problems were caused by high blood pressure caused by comfort eating after 10 years of continuous attack from Islamists for refusing to become one of their raving head-choppers, and 10 years before that being maligned by the West for being a terrorist because I had become a Muslim.

    My conclusion is that all politics is the same, a combination of lies, threats and spying to make you change from a morally and intellectually justified position. BTW Islam forbids lies , threats and spying so Islamism , political Islam is outside Islam. Last week Mrs May’s government scrapped the Leveson Inquiry on MSM spying. Spooks and corporations, mosques and terrorists are now so completely enmeshed in spying, the activity of the devil, that 90% of the West’s economy is based on spying. Where there’s muck, there’s brass.

        Brian I have no idea what you are talking about – most of the time. You seem to communicate in broken haikus. I was complaining about the double game of Muslims, working for the colonial powers against other Muslims in exchange for tangible political power over Muslims. This is not something that just happens in Eastern Ghouta and Mosul. This happens in Alum Rock, Birmingham.

        We live in a free country which has had freedom of religious belief and freedom of expression since 1640, sweeping away the political power of the Roman Catholic Church. Now the medieval minds of political Islam, in the form of the Deobandi and Muslim Brotherhood sects , want to create a political power, recognised and delegated by government, by who and through whom they can control ordinary Muslims.

        I absolutely and unconditionally as an Englishman refuse to recognise any political power except for the state in the UK and I note with great disgust that the Leveson promises, to curb the power of the media to illegally spy on private citizens, have been abandoned by the Tories. It means that any powerful organisation, whether newspaper, union, corporation, religious group or mafia lodge now has a de facto right to spy on private citizens.

        The government realises that its own friends in industry are already far exceeding the law, so it wishes to liberalise the Law, opening the door for any other commercial or quasi religious grouping to spy on, bully, hack, intimidate, anyone they like. This is totally unacceptable.

        Mrs May abandoning Leveson under the fog of Brexit is a nail in the coffin of our human rights to privacy. Ask the people whose private mobiles were hacked.

          Indeed, and it was just such a case with ‘Uncle Tom’ ‘Lord’ Patel in Blackburn, who got the great majority of Muslims to vote for Jack Straw instead of Craig Murray in the 2005 General Election.

          Nothing wrong with hierocracy if the hieros class are clean and pure. With Deobandis and Muslim Brotherhood the ‘Hieros’ class is deeply corrupt, turning a blind eye to the faults of the Apne / Us Asian? Our sect communities vices like buying multiple houses on interest and pretending to themselves that it is the tenant who is paying the interest.

          These sects pick on anybody who is Muslim but outside the confines of their race or sect. When you attend the mosque the imam recites insinuating verses from the Qur’an, knowing that 90% of the congregation don’t understand the Arabic. Yesterday the imam recited verses about a Jew who accepted Islam. I am not a Jew, but the imam is implying that I am, because I converted to Islam. He does not have the right to pick on me because I am not apne/ his race.

          Until I am treated with the equality that Islam demands, I will never set foot in his stupid mosque again. May the curse of Allah be on those who deny their religion. The imam thinks he can divide and rule. Spying on some and paying others to do the spying, treating the English Muslims differently from the Asians.

  • reel guid

    Unbelievable but true. Scottish Lib Dem MP Jo Swinson has written for the Daily Mail, where she says that there simply must be a statue put up of Margaret Thatcher. Criticises the Grocer’s Daughter a little, but basically praises her throughout the piece.

    Sculpt a Tory to be exculpatory. Eh Jo?

    • Anon1

      Criticises her quite a lot actually. And for all the reasons you do. She supports the idea of a statue for her achievements as a woman – a hugely important woman whatever your opinion of her. What was it you were saying about gender equality yesterday morning?

      And look at your snobbery towards the “Grocer’s Daughter”. Not only did Margaret Thatcher have to fight ten times as hard to get where she did as a woman, but she did it in the engrained all-male, elitiist public school dominated politics of the 1970s.

    • Stu

      It’s not really shocking though.

      I’m not shocked that skunks stink or that wasps sting. Why would I be shocked that Swinson is acting like a Tory.

        So if the Lib Dems are like Tories and Labour want a Tory hard brexit against Scotland’s democratic choice, why don’t you join the dots and support Scotland regaining independence?

          I voted for independence but I don’t see it being on the table at the moment.

          My reading of the current situation is that a Corbyn government would try to roll back neoliberalism and oppose US Imperialism. It’s a realistic outcome and would be an important event globally.

            “My reading of the current situation is that a Corbyn government would try to roll back neoliberalism and oppose US Imperialism. ”

            Wow! Spectacular naivety indeed, Corbyn’s just going to walk into number ten and implement his policies and the HoC and the neoliberals and Blairities in his party will go quietly into the night and not oppose them, or stymie them.

            So tell me Stu what happens to Scotland once Corbyn’s tenure as PM is over, it’s back to the same old same old.

            No thanks voting yes is forever, Corbyn is is temporary.

    Simon Coveney, Ireland’s foreign minister and Tanaiste (that’s deputy leader for all you anti-Gaelic language fascists) was on the Marr Show by link from Cork to talk a lot of sense about Brexit and the Irish ramifications.

    But also how refreshing to see a politician put the BBC politely but firmly in place. After a very presumptious and leading question by Marr, Coveneny simply said “I didn’t say that Andrew, don’t put words in my mouth”.

    The SNPs Mike Russell is the only politician this side of the Irish Sea who regularly wrestles BBC interviewers to the ground. It’s no coincidence that Mike has never been invited on Question Time. Just think, with independence all Scotland’s politicians can be free, like the Republic’s, to deal with BBC bullying when interviewed.

    Your premature racism manifests itself in pure tripe. The police have made clear now that this was not an accident caused by neglect, i.e. manslaughter charges for failing to install something correctly. What they are saying now is that some unidentified means of explosion has been deliberately used with the implicit intention to risk or cause the murder of unspecified individuals, including the people who were in the upstairs flat.
    Murder or manslaughter in the UK are not confined to any one particular community. Nor is intentionally driving into people. Wash your mouth before you return to your old habits.

      Some here are blind when it comes to right wing terror in this country, now an increasing threat according to the Police. But they are still humming and hawing before they come to such a conclusion whilst Islamic terror, especially the one you set up yourself, is easily recognised as such.

      Some terror incidents abroad, such as by Mel P. lovey Anders Breivig, are duly shoved in to the mental disability corner, just to make sure we understand that shooting up 75 teenagers with an automatic assault rifle is not just done by our best special US relations but, here in Europe, and, slightly more bombastic, by right wing nutters HERE.

    Microwave ovens were banned in Russia, up until ‘Perestroika’. They are dangerous, but also they damage the food and it’s nutrients.
    Mobile phones and Wi-Fi are also dangerous, but the ‘Smart Meters’ are worse.
    And the mobiles the police and many public services use, on the ‘Tetra’ system, are worst of all.

    Point of information – there is massive information available that the CIA has been shipping drugs into the US by the ton, at least since Vietnam. And ‘Skull & Bones’ was set up with the profits from the forced opium trade with China.

        It’s perfectly clear to me that the US deep state deliberately selected a mentally impaired senior citizen to take the flack for its 30 years of war-mongering, now gone wrong. The deep state leaked Democratic Party secrets in order to extricate itself from eating the vomit of 30 years of using terrorism for its colonial adventurism. Now China and Russia are forcing USUKIS to eat its own Islamism and it dunna like it. You always strive to be the cartoon basset hound of the same name which brain-farts jokes about its master in bubbles of dog-logic methane.
