The Struggle Is the Meaning
May 18, 2019

There is no conceivable interest of the ordinary people of the Western world being served by the crazed decision of their governments to firmly take the Sunni side in the Sunni/Shia tensions of the Islamic world, and to do so in a fashion which deliberately exacerbates points of armed conflict across the Middle East.

Government of Denial: Crisis? What Crisis?
May 15, 2019

Looking at the Conservative party as it is right now, it would be easy to believe they are of a different species, who speak a different language, who came from a different world – a different dimension even. Every day a new statistic of our failing nation feels more like the opening of festering wounds, the result of a banking-led crisis in 2008, itself the making of failed and weak politicians who caved into the lobbying practices of the most corrupt in corporate power. ‘Old Blighty’ now seems like a good term, for Britain is now so badly damaged, so blighted in almost every metric of well-being that society’s life-blood is literally draining away in front of our very eyes. And irrespective of your stance on the big issue of the day, Brexit is the result of politicians by the politicians but for the country, it is like Britain has had its throat slit.

Britain’s Brexit Armageddon
May 14, 2019

One matter is very clear throughout this Brexit ordeal. This is a combined collective failure of the United Kingdom as a whole. There is no unity, no meaning, no purpose, no discipline and no sense of comradeship in the UK – if there ever truly was.

How Gavin Williamson Almost Certainly Got Caught
May 8, 2019

It’s ironic is it not that the Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson, so close to the security services should get caught by the very surveillance services the state has been denying any knowledge of. Craig Murray, former UK ambassador makes an excellent point when it comes to Williamson’s downfall, that America did not want Britain to build 5G infrastructure using Huawei technology – and got its way, irrespective. As for Britain – unable to make even basic decisions without controversy is just another indication of the sheer ineptitude of government the nation is suffering from. Nothing like taking back control eh!

Prime Minister May and the Huawei Scandal
May 7, 2019

Last Wednesday, Senior U.K. Cabinet ministers were hauled before a leak inquiry to determine who was responsible for the unprecedented reporting of highly secret discussions concerning national security. Gavin Williamson was found to be guilty by an investigation of Theresa May’s instigation. Her letter to Williamson was not unambiguous – it categorically stated he was guilty. There was no margin for misunderstanding. As Williamson heads to the backbenches, May has made a new enemy – one who was a party whip – with all the secrets that role comes with.

World Press Freedom Day Is a Joke in the Middle East as the West Continues to Destroy Journalism There
May 6, 2019

If you take the British and Canadian ambassadors farcical and shameful histrionics in Beirut and you can stop laughing for a moment, you see there on the stage the very diplomats who are doing their best to make sure real journalism can never take root in those countries.

Brexit – Can You Answer This Question?
May 2, 2019

We now know a lot more about the consequences of Brexit than we did. It was presented as a binary choice, providing no evidence of its real implications and yet we are told by politicians of both left and right today that the decision must stand. Why? It isn’t about democracy because democracy was corrupted as we have since found out. It wasn’t legally binding – it’s a promise. Politicians haven’t been trusted for decades precisely because they break their promises – so why is Brexit set in stone?

April 22, 2019

Britain, battered and lost, a nation defeated and drowning in its own effluent of self-deprecation and doubt, had little choice to do what is was told as a client state of the US.
