The Captain of Capitulation took to a lonely stage in Doncaster in front of the sign “Under New Leadership.” He carped on about how “We love this country,” trying to paint Jeremy Corbyn as an unpatriotic borderline traitor as he hammered home a vile, divisive, hateful, nationalistic UKIP/Tory inspired message. Nationalism is the perfect precursor for establishing the disgusting principals of alt-right Fascism and Sir Keir Starmer intends to be the ultimate enabler. He will endorse the Tory Party ‘othering’ when they select the scapegoats that best hide Tory incompetence as they both tout that selfish British exceptionalism of brutal past empire. This is a truly disturbing message that panders to the most hateful Brexiteers; we cannot follow this path: we must protest. I think Corbyn would endorse my unifying message as a “Peaceful, Patriot of the Planet.” We had a visionary leader in Jeremy Corbyn who was deprived of his rightful place as PM through the Covert 2019 Rigged Election, but we can still fight this injustice through protest.

How was the Covert 2019 Rigged Election somehow justified as valid to the point where the public actually bought into the scam? A truly obscene amount of donated money bought political influence, enabling Tories to use their wealth to solidify their perpetual stranglehold on power. With all that money came grotesque corruption: I firmly believe that it funded the industrial scale fraud of Idox rigging of the postal votes, the PsyOps propaganda campaign to warp minds, which along with the deregulation and neutering of our compliance and monitoring organizations, left our democracy totally defenceless. We are capable of changing the narrative by grasping the opportunity presented by the Tory Government’s efforts to shut down protest by adopting a new, far more inclusive style of protest: Social Distancing in our regulated groups of six, right outside our homes, right across this entire country. We can collectively create a cacophony of noise on “Sound off Saturday at six” to protest our rage at this Government’s massive failings.

The propaganda of right wing press and the compliant BBC will fall flat when the growing evidence of civil unrest is so observably confirmed on a regular basis. It is really hard to continue lying when the obvious evidence of anti-Government feeling is being so loudly demonstrated. Would this type of protest inspire the public and really catch on, even among Brexiteers? I believe that it would, just as “Clapping for Carers” caught on. Why? Because people are really frustrated, and confronted by new restrictions with threats of steep fines, as the Government seeks to blame ordinary people, the public still remember Tory special treatment of the elite; they remain angry that Dominic Cummings has never been held accountable. This protest stays within the strict new rules the Tories are seeking to impose to make sure we will still send children to school, attend college and continue working and travelling to work in cramped public transport, while they blame us for daring to speak to acquaintances on the street in seditious “Mingling.”

We foolishly allowed Boris’s meaningless slogan “Get Brexit Done” to flood the airwaves and pervade the consciousness of far too many persuadable voters. It’s time to hijack that retched slogan and turn it into a disgusting point of ridicule as “Get Brexit Dung!” I created an online Christmas card featuring a pile of… Dung! It said, “Toxic Tory – Boris’s Well Polished Turd – Happy Horseshit – GET BREXIT DUNG!” It was sent prior to the Covert 2019 Rigged Election, but I lacked the Social Media skills to make it go viral. Do not give up on Brexit; as the disastrous inevitability of the Tory planned crash-out dawns on the public we need further protest. A “Get Brexit Dung” event would entail a mass Dung giveaway! Why not, it’s valuable fertilizer for the garden and we will need to start growing all our own vegetables if EU food imports are disrupted or become too expensive. It would require a well managed quantity of horseshit in an open truck, a few wheelbarrows to spread out, spades and possibly a few charity collection buckets.

Don’t worry if you haven’t got a garden or you aren’t keen on the idea of collecting horse manure; you can still taunt the PM with an online card or tweet featuring “Get Brexit Dung.” For those who have been socially cleansed from the London neighbourhoods designated for ‘gentrification,’ with empty tax shelter apartments for sale to the global elite, resentment is entirely understandable. Even space for a window box to brighten the gloom of a cramped living space in Government allocated ‘temporary accommodation’ well removed from you circle of friends is not possible. Regular cards could be printed for sending to your MP or dear friends who will soon come to regret their misguided choice. When I discuss this with hard core Brexiteers, I try to stress that we were all ‘too trusting’ on both sides of the debate; it helps to diffuse angry rows. Christmas dinner is likely to be distinctly Dickensian this year as the reality of deprivation sets in; family get-together’s will be banned as we’re propelled into a deadly third wave of Covid infection.

It should have been the political scandal that conclusively exonerated Jeremy Corbyn of all the toxic smears manipulated to deliberately scupper his chances of becoming PM; it should have thoroughly discredited the corrupt Tory Government before the Covert 2019 Rigged Election, but it failed on both counts. The London Economic Article entitled, “Labour demand government explains £2m taxpayers’ cash funding infowars unit which smeared Corbyn and Labour.” was not the only paper to report on the Shadow Foreign Secretary’s attack on this injustice as she accused, “These Tories are using public money to subvert democracy.” They report that, “Emily Thornberry has responded to revelations today that around £2 million public money was funnelled to a charity in Scotland which posted disparaging stories against Jeremy Corbyn and other Labour figures. ‘It is one of the cardinal rules of British public life that official resources should not be used for party political purposes,’ insisted the Shadow Foreign Secretary.”

According to the London Economic, “The Sunday Mail in Scotland uncovered the story when it was leaked documents showing a secretive infowars unit, funded with public money, engaging in social media campaigns, including social media attacks on Her Majesty’s opposition party. The Institute for Statecraft is ostensibly a small charity based in a run-down Victorian mill in Fife. But today’s revelations show that it ran a secretive programme called with absolutely no irony, the ‘Integrity Initiative’ – funded with £2m taxpayers’ money. The programme with funds channelled through the Foreign Office was used to attack figures around the world associated with Russia. It was run by ex-military intelligence operatives. Leaked documents passed to the Sunday Mail reveal the organisation’s Integrity Initiative is funded with £2million of Foreign Office cash and run by former military intelligence specialists to galvanise social media influencers against disinformation campaigns.”

Despite the stated goal of countering disinformation the ‘Integrity Initiative’ are sorely lacking in integrity. They say, “the Sunday Mail found social media posts from the initiative’s social media account attacking Jeremy Corbyn, Seumas Milne and other Labour figures with smears. ‘It is one of the cardinal rules of British public life that official resources should not be used for party political purposes. So, it is simply outrageous that the clearly mis-named ‘Integrity Initiative,’ funded by the Foreign Office to the tune of £2.25 million over the past two years, has routinely been using its Twitter feed to disseminate personal attacks and smears against the Leader of the Opposition, the Labour Party and Labour officials,’ responded Labour’s Shadow Foreign Secretary. ‘this cannot be dismissed as something outside the Government’s control, given the application for funding agreed by the Foreign Office last year stated explicitly that it would be used in part to expand ‘the impact of the Integrity Initiative website…and Twitter/social media accounts’.”

Thornberry put the Tories on the spot as the London Economic say she demanded to know the truth, “‘So the Government must now answer the following questions: why did the Foreign Office allow public money to be spent on attempting to discredit Her Majesty’s Opposition? Did they know this was happening? If not, why not? And if they did, how on earth can they justify it?’ The secretive programme tweeted from its official account newspaper reports that implied the approval of Jeremy Corbyn and Labour figures of Russian leader Vladimir Putin and his actions.” A lot of the smears were petty jibes that were readily magnified out of all proportion and embellished in the Murdock press to then be featured on the BBC Paper Review as if they were genuine news items. One such smear “…for instance, retweeted a newspaper story that said: ‘Milne is not a spy – that would be beneath him. ‘But what he has done, wittingly or unwittingly, is work with the Kremlin agenda’.”

London Economic say it’s been noted that, “…the Integrity Initiative had in the past tweeted about Conservatives’ questionable connections to Russian money. The Integrity Initiative has also been attacked for backing Ukrainian politicians with worrying far right links and The Sunday Mail found evidence of it orchestrating a Twitter campaign against a Spanish politician believed to be friendly to Russia that resulted in him not being given a government post.” However the real issue is that our Government should not be sponsoring any organization, let alone a registered charity, to meddle in domestic or foreign politics. This represented serious Government corruption on the very highest level, that in any credible democracy would have seen the corrupt Ministers involved, up to and including the UK Prime Minister, hauled away in handcuffs. Here in England it just reinforced the new reality that this Tory Government is above the law and we are well on our way along the dangerous path to full Tory Dictatorship.

The London Economic report that, “When Labour MP Chris Williamson asked Minister of State Alan Duncan about Foreign Office funding for the initiative in a parliamentary question, the Tory minister responded: “The Institute for Statecraft is an independent, Scottish, charitable body whose work seeks to improve governance and enhance national security. They launched the Integrity Initiative in 2015 to defend democracy against disinformation. ‘In financial year 2017/18, the FCO funded the Institute for Statecraft’s Integrity Initiative £296,500. This financial year, the FCO is funding a further £1,961,000. Both have been funded through grant agreements’.” This might sound like a noble goal, but for one really serious flaw: according to the regulations governing the charitable status in the UK, engaging in political activity of any kind is banned. Fr this reason several people have complained with regard to their activity and demanded that the Institute of Statecraft be stripped of its charitable status.

This whole row played out right before the Covert 2019 Rigged Election and at that time the London Economic said that, “Today the Labour MP for Derby North reacted: ‘What the hell is going on? I tabled a parliamentary question recently and discovered the Foreign Office has given £2m of public money to a shady organisation that’s indulging in black propaganda against Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party.’ Chris Williamson MP added: ‘These Tories are using public money to subvert democracy. The irony of the govt’s response to my question about them funding this shady organisation is that they claim it’s ‘…to defend democracy against disinformation’.” They said that, “The Integrity Initiative responded: ‘The Institute for Statecraft is a charity – see its other projects. The IfS started the Integrity Initiative to highlight disinformation and malign influence across Europe. We are non-partisan and highlight relevant stories whoever they feature’.”

The London Economic reported that, “Last month the organisation said it was hacked and documents posted online on Russian media. A statement on its website said: ‘The Integrity Initiative is a non-partisan programme of The Institute for Statecraft, a non-partisan charity which promotes good governance. The Integrity Initiative looks specifically at the use of disinformation and malign influence to undermine the values of democratic societies. ‘Since the programme was set up in 2015, the UK and the democratic world in general have continued to be targeted by disinformation activity, including in particular from Russia. For example, Russia put out various false stories about the shooting down of the Malaysian airliner MH17 over Ukraine in July 2014, even after the official enquiry reported that Russia was responsible.” The Integrity Initiative has thoroughly blown its credibility by embellishing false flag incidents with dubious information to support the ongoing vilification of Russia by western powers.

One fabricated false flag incident was the Skripal case, played out in the media in a dark tale of weird anomalies that consistently failed to make any logical sense. But the London Economic were taken in enough to report, “despite the UK government pointing the finger of blame at Moscow for the attempted assassination of Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, in March 2018, supported by many countries and which led to a mass expulsion of Russian diplomats, the Russian authorities issued at least 47 different versions as to what had happened. In sharing information about such malign activities, the Integrity Initiative uses Twitter as a key method of sharing knowledge. This includes the usual Twitter practice of re-tweeting and liking tweets. However, at no time has the Integrity Initiative engaged in party political activity and would never take up a party-political stance. Disinformation and malign influence from rogue states and certain non-state actors are a threat to democratic values and transcend any party political cause.”

There were some very shady dealers manipulating the vote from behind the scenes. There was a decent Panorama documentary exposing the dirty money financial dealings that are so pervasive in the “London Laundromat!” If a benefit claimant receives funds they are not entitled to we hound them to death, but tax dodgers and criminals supported by our banks never pay back a fraction of what they owe. The massive donations to the Tory Party from Russian Oligarchs to gain direct access for Government influence. They have stolen their vast wealth from the Russian people and they do not act in our best interests. A Zionist Israeli Government with an agenda of silencing all criticism of their apartheid regime exerted power over both major political parties through their powerful Israeli lobbies and the BoD. They hated Corbyn with passion for his support of the Palestinians, manipulating the propaganda over fantisemitism to discredit him and sabotage his electoral chances: Starmer has committed to doing their bidding.

The Captain of Capitulation endorsed all of the worst Boris Johnson lies and con tricks starting with his unquestioning acceptance of the Cover 2019 Rigged Election fake ‘landslide victory’ and drivelling on with empty platitudes all the way to his reinforcement of fantisemitism. Starmer’s nauseatingly vacuous speech, preaching values, with no real policy substance; he even drummed home the PMs lies about ‘levelling up’ to help totally discredit his empty pitch. Tory ‘levelling up’ is in reality an excessive transfer of vast sums of money from the universally exploited working poor into the bulging trousers and bank accounts of the super wealthy elite. We must be honest with people that the real Tory agenda is a continuation of ‘Decimating Down;’ low wages, zero hours contracts with no job security and young people steeped in debt unable to leave home. Starmer even capitulated on his core principals over the EU, to endorse another Boris Johnson soundbite to ‘Get Brexit Done;’ we do not have to accept the reality of ‘Get Brexit Dung!’

While Keir Starmer was busy embracing selfish, jingoistic ‘patriotism,’ denouncing his predecessor and hastily abandoning all the pledges that got him elected leader in order to consolidate his commitment to capitulation, the true visionary he was so eager to malign was demonstrating the genuine courage of conviction that is the hallmark of great leadership. In the Canary Article entitled, “Jeremy Corbyn and former heads of state demand freedom for Julian Assange,” they report that, “A number of former presidents, as well as former Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn, have urged the UK government to grant WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange ‘his long overdue freedom’. The list of signatories includes Argentinian president Alberto Fernández, former Brazilian presidents Dilma Rousseff and Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, and former Bolivian president Evo Morales., It also includes former Ecuadorian president Rafael Correa, whose government granted Assange asylum in the country’s embassy in London in 2012.”

Craig Murray conscientiously documenting the Assange case reported on day 13 that, “Mark Summers QC said that it went to the question of whether Wikileaks had performed a necessary act to prevent criminality by the US Government and enable justice. Lewis responded that it was unacceptable to the US government that allegations of torture should be made. At this point, Julian Assange became very agitated. He stood up and declared very loudly: ‘I will not permit the testimony of a torture victim to be censored by this court’ A great commotion broke out. Baraitser threatened to have Julian removed and have the hearing held in his absence. There was a break following which it was announced that el-Masri would not appear, but that the gist of his evidence would be read out, excluding detail of US torture or of US pressure on the government of Germany. Mark Summers QC started to read the evidence.” If Baraitser had thrown Assange out the wider press would have known of the reason he protested.

Had the Judge made more fuss she would have unwittingly broadcast Julian’s words further and he was smart enough to know that as he desperately reached beyond the constraints of the bars of Belmarsh. It is our duty to put as loud a ‘megaphone’ as we can to Assange’s message so that the wider world fully realizes the enormity and potential impact on the investigative press of this US Government persecution of an innocent Whistleblower Journalist with this extradition hearing. Assange was never a criminal and he should not face trial in the US. America cannot just telescope its reach to foreign nationals acting overseas in order to ensnare them in a US justice system tailored to prosecute them under reduced rights just to hide US guilt of war crimes. Other countries will claim those same unjust rights as Brazil has already tried to. Sadly, it is only a matter of time before the Media coax our cowardly Captain of Capitulation into criticizing Corbyn’s support of Assange to offer his forensic, jingoistic opinion supporting US extradition.

Is this the new direction for Labour ‘Under New Leadership” In a Skwawkbox Article with Video entitled: “Shadow Foreign Sec Nandy criticised for ‘Britain First’ radio interview,” they say, “Jingoism is no substitute for an actual policy platform to improve life for UK people. Labour’s Shadow Foreign Secretary has been criticised for a Radio 4 interview that effectively made ‘Britain First’ – the name of a far right hate group and the words shouted by the murderer of Labour MP Jo Cox – a Labour slogan.” They highlighted rgar, “Commentator Rachel Shabi identified the similarity just after Nandy had appeared on Radio 4’s Today programme: Lisa Nandy on R4 Today on what’s changed for Labour: ‘We stand up for Britain, we stand up for British people, we stand up for British interests and we will always put that first. Got it. From now on it will be Britain first’.” Lisa Nandi also appeared on Politics Live this morning touting the same toxic messaging; we will not beat the alt-right Fascist Tories by becoming more bigoted that they are!

Shabi also tweeted, “Corbyn’s Labour was demonized for championing internationalism and an inclusive collectivism, supporting migrant and minority rights. Now it seems Labour is going out of its way to disassociate from those values.” Skwawkbox reprinted a number of the tweets as they said, “Hundreds of responses attacked Nandy’s – and by implication party leader Keir Starmer’s – jingoistic approach, with some referring back to the appalling anti-immigration mugs created by New Labour as it tried to out-Tory the Tories. Starmer’s excruciating conference speech, which Nandy’s appearance was meant to trail, attempted unconvincingly to tap into that same jingoism and will do nothing to persuade the leave seats that Labour lost last year that he is any different to the remain-obsessed referendum advocate that helped destroy Labour in many of its heartlands.” Starmer is ready to be led whichever way will keep the Media fawning over him as he moves into the designated neoliberal slot that suits the wealthy elite.

Skwawkbox rightly say, “To even flirt with ‘Britain first’ rhetoric is an appalling betrayal of Labour values – and no replacement for pursuing the actual policies that will improve lives for everyone who lives in this country. But it seems Starmer thinks he can run away from those policies and make up for it in dog-whistle language.” However, it is a futile exercise to add a comment on their site that denies the ‘borrowed votes’ lie and the fake ‘landslide victory’ of the Covert 2019 Rigged Election; you just get drowned out by abusive replies as they cling to their ‘crumbling red wall’ dishonour. What if millions of people came outside their homes in small groups “Sound off Saturday at Six” to make a noisy protest, just as they did clapping for carers, but a whole lot louder? People would realize that, no their neighbours hadn’t voted for the Tories; the propaganda lie would be debunked. It would create the environment where a Whistleblower might be believed exposing the truth needed for a full Investigation to Get the Tories Out! DO NOT MOVE ON!
