Hillary Clinton IS The Guardian

by craig on Feb 10th 2016 in Uncategorized

Hillary Clinton is American, owned by financial interests to whom she is completely in thrall, a rabid neo-conservative warmonger, completely uncritical of Israel and focused for any claim to be progressive entirely on identity politics. Which is also a precise description of today’s Guardian newspaper. The once august and intellectual title is now a shrill […]

Uber-Unionist Deutsche Bank Tanks

by craig on Feb 9th 2016 in Uncategorized

Deutsche Bank led the bankers’ charge against Scottish independence, claiming that an independent Scotland would enter “a great depression” that would blight generations of Scots. This dire prediction was made by Chief Economist David Folkerts-Landau, who owns several personal homes with a value of tens of millions and is a friend of the Camerons. Deutsche […]

Anguish as North Korea Marches Into 1955

by craig on Feb 9th 2016 in Uncategorized

By nearly having an intercontinental ballistic missile and not quite nearly having a nuclear warhead and detonator small enough to fit on it, North Korea has brought its military technology almost to the point of being just sixty years out of date. The panic this has caused is not unjustified, as nuclear weapons are a […]

Karimov: “Homosexuality A Vile Western Phenomenon”

by craig on Feb 8th 2016 in Uncategorized

The appalling President Karimov of Uzbekistan does not mellow in old age. He has just given a speech in which he describes homosexuality as a “vile western phenomenon.” The only news report I can find adds that he said: “If a man lives with a man, or a woman with a woman, I think that […]

Guardian and STV journos Congratulate Murdoch Lackey on Blatant Lies About Me

by craig on Feb 7th 2016 in Uncategorized

For anybody who doubts the reactionary single voice the UK media has become, it should be obvious from what you see on the surface, eg the unanimity of attack on Corbyn, the SNP or Assange. But if that doesn’t help, look below the surface. Ex-Hedge Fund manager, now Murdoch leader writer Oliver Kamm published a […]

Why the Assange Allegation is a Stitch-up

by craig on Feb 7th 2016 in Uncategorized

I am slightly updating and reposting this from 2012 because the mainstream media have ensured very few people know the detail of the “case” against Julian Assange in Sweden. The UN Working Group ruled that Assange ought never to have been arrested in the UK in the first place because there is no genuine investigation […]

Kafka 2016

by craig on Feb 5th 2016 in Uncategorized

To my astonishment, the FCO Official Spokesman has just confirmed to me that the FCO stands by Phillip Hammond’s statement that the members of the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention are lay persons, and not lawyers. Even though every single one of them is an extremely distinguished lawyer. I confess I am utterly astonished. […]

Philip Hammond’s Astonishing Lie

by craig on Feb 5th 2016 in Uncategorized

The official statement by the UK Foreign Secretary, Phillip Hammond: “I reject the decision of this working group. It is a group made up of lay people and not lawyers. Julian Assange is a fugitive from justice. He is hiding from justice in the Ecuadorian embassy.” These are the cvs of the group (including the […]

Establishment Family Values

by craig on Feb 5th 2016 in Uncategorized

There has been a touching display of family values in the establishment’s full-throated attempt to roar down the United Nations today. Joanna Gosling of BBC News won my prize for the news presenter who exuded the highest level of shrill indignation that the UN should dare to query the actions of the British Government. There […]

Assange – A Fundamental Vindication

by craig on Feb 5th 2016 in Uncategorized

Julian Assange has never been charged with any offence. His detention has been unlawful since his very first arrest in the United Kingdom in 2010. There has never been any genuine attempt by the Swedish authorities to investigate the allegations against him. Those are the findings of the United Nations. The UK and Swedish governments […]

The Clinton “Fluke”

by craig on Feb 2nd 2016 in Uncategorized

Hillary Clinton only “won” Iowa because she won all six coin tosses in tied precincts. What are the odds against six successive coin toss wins? I calculate 1 in 64, or you have a 1.5% chance of pulling it off. If I am right, do we really believe it did happen? That question is posed […]

Why That Particular Mankad Was Cheating

by craig on Feb 2nd 2016 in Uncategorized

Even this picture does not give the idea of how close it was. The bat is moving forward (left to right), and you can see the stump has already moved forward a fair way. At the instant the stumps were broken, the bat was further back towards the crease. If it was out, it was […]

Feminism a Neo-Con Tool

by craig on Jan 7th 2016 in Uncategorized

UPDATE Minutes after I posted this article, the ludicrous Jess Phillips published an article in the Guardian which could not have been better designed to prove my thesis. A number of people have posted comments on the Guardian article pointing this out, and they have all been immediately deleted by the Guardian. I just tried […]

Locked In

I take my partying seriously, but Nadira has been extremely busy.

Coe Better Protected Than Blatter By Corrupt National Authorities

by craig on Dec 22nd 2015 in Uncategorized

Why are the Metropolitan Police not feeling Tory Lord Sebastian Coe’s collar and trawling his hard drives? I blogged recently about his involvement in awarding the World Athletics Championships without a vote to the hometown of his long term paymasters and sponsors, Nike. Plus the £12 million his promotions company made from VIP hospitality packages […]

Independence When – A Riposte

by craig on Dec 21st 2015 in Uncategorized

I have been in Cruden Bay the last few days, where Nadira had been for some time shooting a film she has both written and produced. It is a short drama, a harrowing tale of torture victims who have applied for political asylum in the UK and are now in immigration detention on the “fast […]

Is the SNP Campaigning for Independence?

by craig on Dec 18th 2015 in Uncategorized

I was watching This Week on the BBC last night, and Andrew Neil teased John Nicolson that the SNP had given up campaigning for Independence, and never mentioned it any more. I have known John since student days, and much respect him. He is a very professional man and put in a very professional performance […]

Our Proud and Fascist Heritage

by craig on Dec 17th 2015 in Uncategorized

Yesterday’s revelation that Prince Charles sees Cabinet Office memoranda denied to most ministers did not spark as much public outrage as might be expected. Part of that is because of the view that, by and large, Charles is a fairly decent old stick with some surprisingly progressive opinions. The problem is, of course, that with […]

Jack Straw Responds to Alex Salmond with Blatant Lie

by craig on Dec 16th 2015 in Uncategorized

Jack Straw continues to lie about his involvement with torture. On Sunday, Alex Salmond told Alex Marr on the BBC that an inquiry must discover what Straw and Blair knew. On Monday Straw responded in the Guardian: Straw said Salmond’s comments were completely untrue. “The British government was never complicit nor condoned torture or other […]

BBC Bias

by craig on Dec 10th 2015 in Uncategorized

I am involved quite extensively in the making of what I believe to be a valuable independent documentary. It is based on George Ponsonby’s excellent book London Calling, and has the working title How the BBC Stole the Referendum. We have already done a few hours filming of my contribution. The film is being directed […]
