Scotland Kicks off Process of Europe’s Fragmentation

The Scottish referendum results show that something is rotten in the state of the United Kingdom. The event has given an impetus to the separatist aspirations in Ulster, Wales and the Island of Maine and even in the tin-rich Cornwall County believed to be the homeland of legendary king Arthur. The idea of getting more preferences from London without offering anything in return has become popular. The referendum has changed Scotland. The turnout was great with people of all walks of life and ages going to polls... In Europe separatists are gaining strength in Catalonia, Flandria (Belgium), Corsica (France), Northern Italy and Bavaria (Germany). They construe the referendum results as a victory of independent Scotland because it has asserted its right to self-determination...

The Anglos: Experts at Reneging on Sovereignty Promises

It should be apparent to every national sovereignty movement that finds itself up against well-entrenched moneyed interests, whether they sit in positions of power in London or Ottawa, that the promises made by the oligarchs of Anglo politico-economic power are never to be trusted. The London coalition government of the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats, as well as the opposition Labor Party, are playing the same game with Scotland that the Ottawa government played with Quebec after the French-speaking province voted to reject independence in a 1980 referendum. English politicians... after promising increased powers to Scotland if the country voted to reject independence, are already backtracking on a promised «devolution max»...

Russian Oligarchs Enjoy Scot-Free Property Boom

While the British government-led No campaign is piling on scare claims to deter people voting Yes for independence in the historic Scottish referendum this week, one powerful London-based group stands to make handsome profits from the bitter contest – the Russian oligarchs. Multi-billionaire Russian and Ukrainian tycoons have gained notoriety in recent years for their splurging on up-market London property and other high-end real estate. Around 10 per cent of the London real estate aggregate market value is estimated to in the hands of mega-rich Russians. That’s a phenomenal growth in one the world’s most expensive cities. So prominent have Russian tycoons become in the British capital’s property sector that London is often now jokingly referred to as “Moscow on the Thames” or “Londongrad”.

Why London Fears Scottish Independence

The pro-independent Scotland campaign has gained the momentum to win as Scots go to a referendum next week to decide on whether the country will secede from the United Kingdom... The secession of Scotland will place the center-right Conservatives into sharper competition with the more rightwing UK Independence Party (UKIP), which has risen dramatically in recent polls to upend the three main parties. The vociferously anti-European Union UKIP wants Britain to quit the EU altogether over grievances of immigration and alleged infringement of sovereignty by Brussels... Another factor that the London establishment is having deep misgivings over is the issue of North Sea oil and gas. Scottish independence would see 90 per cent of all future tax revenues being directed to Edinburgh rather than London since most of the oil and gas fields will lie within Scottish maritime territory...

St. Andrew’s Flag Flown over Scotland and Donetsk

That’s the way the history goes. The St. Andrew’s flag is flown in two places in Europe situated at great distance from each other. Scotland and Novorossia are struggling for their national identity under the same colors. The two peoples divided by different history and cultures are addressing the issue of independence. They are going different ways; a peaceful referendum is to take place in Scotland while Novorossia is going through the horrors of civil war. But they are united by the same goal and its symbol – the St. Andrew flag...

London’s Devious Plans for Scotland’s Independence Referendum

There are credible reports that the British government, which includes the Conservative and Liberal Democratic parties, as well as the Labor opposition, have colluded with the British media to downplay in articles, news broadcasts, and published opinion polls the actual strength of the pro-independence "Yes" campaign in Scotland... For example, a few months ago, the British government instructed the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) in a confidential document to undermine at every opportunity the Yes vote... There is a strong belief that other British networks and newspapers, including Rupert Murdoch's Sky News and the Times of London, received the same instruction and obediently carried it out...

«Welcome for Scottish Will Stand Being True to the Scottish Flag…»

The Scottish independence referendum is slated for September 18. The issue was initiated in 2007 by Alex Salmond, the leader of the Scottish National Party. Back then his party received majority in the Scottish parliament to make him First Minister of Scotland. In May 2011 he announced the intention to hold a referendum on independence. He used ideology, history and legal grounds to perfectly substantiate the idea. London could not prevent the plebiscite. The only thing British Prime Minister David Cameron could do was to call for «Nay» vote...

The Atlantic Alliance’s “Holy War” against the Islamic State (ISIS): NATO’s Role in the Recruitment of Islamic Terrorists

While NATO leaders in Newport Wales debate the Atlantic Alliance’s role “in containing a mounting militant threat in the Middle East”, it is worth recalling that in 2011 at the outset of the war in Syria,  NATO became actively involved in the recruitment of Islamic fighters.

Provocation as a Policy Tool of the West (I)

2014 marks the anniversaries of three significant dates in military history: on 28 July, the world marked the 100-year anniversary of the outbreak of World War One; 1 September will be 75 years since the start of World War Two; and August will mark 50 years since the beginning of the US war in Vietnam. Generally speaking, all the wars of the 20th century are alike – explosions of bombs and shells, the smell of ash, herds of refugees, the frightened eyes of children, and the tears of mothers and widows. These three wars, however, have their own unique characteristics: the casus belli, the act used to justify each war, was an act of provocation...

Currency Swaps in the Modern World. The Birth of the Global Currency Cartel (II)

Before 2011, unlimited swaps between central banks were open for a period of seven days. In the autumn of 2011, however, the US FRS, the European Central Bank (ECB), the Bank of Japan, the Bank of England, the Bank of Switzerland and the Bank of Canada (the ‘big six’) agreed to coordinate actions to ensure the liquidity of the global financial system... Currency wars are not going anywhere; they are just ceasing to exist within the currency pool of the ‘big six’, while new currency wars between the ‘big six’ and the rest of the world are inevitable. The success of BRICS and other countries on the periphery of global capitalism in building a fair global financial order will, to a large extent, depend on the understanding that the West has already been consolidated and has distanced itself from the rest of the world...
