Selective Indignation

by craig on Sep 14th 2015 in Uncategorized

For his first nine years as Prime Minister, Tony Blair appointed NO women to any of the “Great offices of state” over which Corbyn is under such concerted media fire. And he had many less women in his shadow cabinet and cabinet. Yet there was virtually no media comment at all, and none of this […]

Guest Post by the BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg

by craig on Sep 14th 2015 in Uncategorized

Project Corbyn, that astonishing tidal wave movement of a tiny minority of hard left activists and other entryists which swept Labour into the ocean of unrealistic economic policy and unelectable beliefs, has run aground within 48 hours on the issue of alphabetical discrimination. Many senior Labour sources have, within the last hour, told me that […]

Decoding New Labour

by craig on Sep 14th 2015 in Uncategorized

The odious Charles Clarke states on Radio 4 that Labour MPs will develop “their own alternative” to the economic policy of Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell. What he means is that Goldman Sachs, Deloitte, Lord Sainsbury and the private healthcare firms will continue to push their interest through bought and paid for New Labour MPs. […]

The BBC is Irredeemable

by craig on Sep 13th 2015 in Uncategorized

As I get older and I see the institutions of British society twisted and distorted to fit the extreme neo-liberal agenda, I find myself advocating all kinds of responses which I would have found anathema even a decade below. One f these is that I definitely believe that the BBC should be abolished as a […]

People’s Quantitive Easing

by craig on Sep 13th 2015 in Uncategorized

The media is astonishing today in its barrage against Jeremy Corbyn. Presenters repeatedly state that to oppose nuclear weapons and foreign wars is “weak”, as though that were undeniable. Spending quantitive easing on public infrastructure is “inflationary” and “irresponsible” – and these are the presenters not the guests. Why simply handing quantitive easing money to […]

Congratulations to Jeremy Corbyn

by craig on Sep 12th 2015 in Uncategorized

I am unreservedly delighted at Jeremy Corbyn’s election. He made a quite excellent speech, specifically rejecting an attack on Syria, marketization in the NHS and the new anti-union legislation. Hopefully the scale of his victory will give pause to the Blairites who will realise they are not as all-important as they thought. There is no […]

Labour’s Bitter Lemons

by craig on Sep 12th 2015 in Uncategorized

Hilarious live broadcast from Labour’s Leadership Election result. A defeated and humiliated Blairite hierarchy are the large majority of those Labour elite who qualify to get in. A hilarious bitter coded speech from the Labour General Secretary in which he sarcastically said that he looked forward o seeing the three pound supporters stomping the doorsteps […]

UPDATE Labour Are Still a Bunch of Crooks

by craig on Sep 11th 2015 in Uncategorized

UPDATE 36,000 people voted for swizzler Tessa Jowell to be Labour candidate for London’s mayor. If you consider the facts below, that says something very scarey about a substantial portion of Labour Party membership, even if she didn’t win. The fact that it is still a serious possibility that a substantial number of Labour members […]

Exclusive: I Can Reveal the Legal Advice on Drone Strikes, and How the Establishment Works

by craig on Sep 9th 2015 in Uncategorized

This may be the most important article I ever post, because it reveals perfectly how the Establishment works and how the Red Tories and Blue Tories contrive to give a false impression of democracy. It is information I can only give you because of my experience as an insider. It is a definitive proof of […]

Operation Flavius and the Killer Cameron

by craig on Sep 8th 2015 in Uncategorized

Exactly twenty years ago the European Court of Human Rights found that the British Government had acted illegally in shooting dead three IRA members in Gibraltar, even though the court accepted that the government had a genuine belief that they were planning a bombing attack. Indeed the court accepted the victims were terrorists, and refused […]

Why Murdoch Pushes for War

by craig on Sep 7th 2015 in Uncategorized

Given the disgraceful Sun front page and middle spread urging war on Syria, and the all-out propaganda on Sky News, it is important to understand why Murdoch is pushing so hard for war. I therefore reproduce my article from February 2013. It is important to note that the links are to industry publications: this is […]

The Carmichael Case

by craig on Sep 7th 2015 in Uncategorized

I have been dipping in to the coverage of the Carmichael recall case. His lawyer is basing his argument heavily on a precedent that, while a candidate may adopt a political position that shows him to be a hypocrite, the law only applies to personal conduct and not political conduct. He then quotes a Channel […]

The Usual Warmongers

by craig on Sep 7th 2015 in Uncategorized

To many of us who have been in conflict zones without a sanitised cordon around us, and actually seen the effects close-up (and that excludes almost all of the political class), it is astonishing that the neo-cons constantly seek to promote war, any war. They just cannot sit comfortably unless we are blowing somebody, somewhere, […]

Stokes Controversy

by craig on Sep 6th 2015 in Uncategorized

I was watching the match yesterday live on television. Had Ben Stokes not stuck out his had to stop the ball, it would not have passed within twelve inches of any part of his body. The notion that he was defending himself is a nonsense. It was plainly out. If that was not out, then […]

Selective Demonisation

by craig on Sep 4th 2015 in Uncategorized

I am delighted by the apparent sea-change in media opinion on the treatment of refugees, but concerned that in modern society compassion only seems able to operate in a wave of emotional hysteria rather than as a fundamental, underlying everyday principle. There is also a danger that those arriving in the Mediterranean and Balkans are […]

When the Politics Has to Stop

by craig on Sep 3rd 2015 in Uncategorized

There are times when political considerations must give way to the relief of immediate human suffering. The current refugee crisis is one of those times and the UK must take genuine refugees on the same scale as Germany, starting immediately. In the long term the influx of determined young people and families will in any […]

The Great Wealth Transfer to the London Elite

by craig on Sep 2nd 2015 in Uncategorized

The Guardian has a fascinating piece on house prices which deserves to be read and studied in detail. In London in 2013 the median house price had reached 300,000 while the median salary was 24,600. House prices are 12.2 x salary. That means it is in practice impossible for working people, without inherited wealth, to […]

Breaking the Depleted Uranium Ceiling

by craig on Sep 1st 2015 in Uncategorized

It is an astonishing fact that, despite near universal recognition now that the war in Iraq was a disaster, no major British social institution is headed by a single one of the majority of the population wo were opposed to the war. Every Cabinet Minister actively supported the war. Of the fifteen Tory MPs who […]

Forget Faslane

by craig on Aug 31st 2015 in Uncategorized

With this country’s massive needs in housing and renewable energy, it is typical that the only public spending announcement the Tories wish to make is on more potential for death and destruction at Faslane. The politics of the ludicrous claims on employment creation are risibly transparent. Don’t vote SNP! Don’t Vote Corbyn! This is not […]
