Britain will have to learn to live with Covid as an ‘endemic’ illness for many years, according to leaked documents obtained by the Mail on Sunday. 

The virus is expected to remain widespread within the population, with ‘seasonal surges’ in the winter like flu and other respiratory diseases. 

Britain must learn to live with Covid as ‘endemic’ illness for years (msn.com)

Comment Some of us were intelligent , educated and honest enough to say this at the outset. Covid 19 is a cold virus. Vaccines won’t defeat it. It is high risk for growing elderly , unhealthy and BAME populations. I am one of the elderly and have had my day. Covid lockdowns and vaccines are just another way of punishing the young , protecting a not fit for purposed bloated NHS- and enriching power hungry greedy vested interests.

R J Cook

Taking it Sleazy.

This is what they wanted Brexit for.

Oddly Enough.

Oddly enough, I was my PE teacher’s pet pupil. By my early teens, I was a County team athlete and member of Southgate Harriers. By age 15, I was training over 60 miles a week, rising to 100 miles at University. We competed every Saturday, went to the pub , drank too much then did 20 miles fast round Norwich ring road followed by weight training in the afternoon.

Fitness, like anything worth having , requires hard work. To many of my cool undergraduate and post graduate contemporaries, my enthusiasm for sport , seemed rather eccentric – after all, there was no money in it then. At Goldsmith’s, I took a subsidiary course in PE teaching. In my years of teaching this hated subject, I was most challenged. I taught many subjects, for 18 years, caught everything in the first term and haven’t been ill since. That’s how you fast track immunity , still need to be fit though.

But for all of my life long fitness – I still walk between 6 and 17 miles in a day – I have no ultimate immunity to death. The less fit a person is , the more vulnerable they are to any illness if you are over 50. The Covid jab is not an antidote to death, and .the jab – of which I have had 2 – is not going to prevent Covid getting you, with you passing it on. In my view it is at best a placebo. But , in spite of my awful reputation for law and rule breaking, I have always done my best to comply with laws and rules.

It is a pity the police don’t seem bound by them , with so many getting away with vile conduct. The idiot Crime Commissioner who said Sarah Everard she should have resisted arrest by that despicable killer cop, wasn’t fit for the job – not a surprise really.

Couzens police nickname was ‘The Rapist.’ He was seen as a joke. Had Sarah resisted, she would have tasered and the best she could have hoped for was a criminal record for her resistance. Our country is not only corrupt , it is sick. The Covid Catastrophe is a mere symptom of a systemic illness. From this wider sickness, we members of the lower orders have no immunity, which is why so many are going mad. Don’t worry , the nice doctor is there with anti psychotics and complex needs counselling – and there is always the hospital secure unit. If you don’t fit , you have abnormal psychology and must be dealt with. R J Cook

Anyone might be excused for thinking that Covid is our major health threat and this is a jab to abolish death. This is a very sick nation in a very sick world. Politicians , police and health experts have never appeared so untrustworthy in my view. R J Cook

U.K Not Corrupt Says Boris

( Sic )

Comment So Boris doesn’t believe the U.K or its institutions are corrupt. Well he would say that wouldn’t he ? He is in charge of Britain and its public services. Cox is the former Attorney General. He gets an MP’s salary plus expenses exceeding £89.000 per annum. Meanwhile he uses lockdown to vote remotely for a self interested political system. At the same time he is sunning himself in the Caribbean working as a top notch lawyer on a basic of £400, 000 per annum.

Cox is just the tip of a very dirty iceberg. These people preach equality and democracy. Their police priorities are vilifying working class men , calling for more sex and violence convictions and giving more time to women to come up with allegations. Meanwhile we are supposed swallow the line that the police are not corrupt , but all heroes putting their lives on the line everyday. Moralising Health Secretary gets filmed having sexual relations with the woman he chose to be his special adviser , and government doesn’t want to sack him. He wanted to find and punish the person who set up the camera. All in the good old fashioned ‘pubic interest; you know old boy !

The police joined with the NHS calling for more money for dealing with lockdown. Public services have exploded since Thatcher founded the New British Police State. Major construction projects are not properly scrutinised and the Crown Prosecution Service are target driven. Like the police they withhold evidence and use fabricated evidence provided by the equally target driven and institutionally corrupt police.

Lockdown has seen billions of taxpayer’s money wasted and disappearing into corrupt hands because contracts have been awarded to cronies and tests have been a disaster like the whole nonsense of lockdown. Vested interests don’t want Covid to go away. U.K’s masses have never been so watched, misled , over taxed and frightened. One could go on. If Boris really thinks these MPs rules , which saw Cameron and Patterson profit from lobbying , then Johnson appears to think this is normal and not a deviation from good practice. Starmer has no right to preach , having headed a CPS which knowingly withheld evidence to get convictions regardless of innocence.

Ultimately this is a class issue. All the poison about BLM, women’s rights, all men are rapists, they are wife beaters too, and so much more is all about faking equality. Britain is not a democracy , unless our elite mean the GDR model . The U.K is a world leader on police state methods and technology , lies and hypocrisy. Justice is an expensive game , paid for by the poor underclass, with loaded dice. R J Cook

Sheep are much like the common people.

Race Times – Comment by R J Cook

There is much danger in using elite sport to pacify white working class resentment. Clearly BLM and anti racism, along with LGBTQI inclusiveness propaganda, is more likely to create conflict than appease it.

I will dispose of the LGBTQI issue first. There is a lot wrong with the way the gender debate is presented, with effects of feminism actively ignored. Nature is binary and there are either transsexuals or there are not. LGBTQI likes to blur TS people like me with gays.

The gender identity clinic appears to believe all TS people are so desperate for female genitals that they will take anti psychotic drugs, believing , doing and seeing the world as their modern day Frankenstein creators want them to is key to better life – shutting them in a coral. I refused to do this , in spite of the GIC et al involving the police with whom I am in conflict – and their psychiatrist seeking contact with my ex wife, according to . If one is transsexual that should be that. So hopefully transition and go on making yourself useful.

Trans people are no more inherently brave than the rest of the masses in the police state age. That is why they form groups. In my view there are men , women and individuals. The latter are the only ones to bring hope of change and improvement. Blocking my transgender treatment because I won’t take 3 half hour so called psychiatric assessments after 15 hours truck driving is a big issue – especially since they crashed my home just after I arrived back. – as honest diagnosis , says much about State funded sex change processes and intentions. That is an ongoing and most serious situation. It is many things , including hate crime.

However , multi millionaire racing driver Lewis Hamilton’s daily bulletins that he is being obstructed in his efforts to prove blacks more than equal to whites , is something else. He knocked his rival out and nearly killed him at Silverstone , birthplace of Formula One which the British elite mindset still dominates.

Every day , Britain’s elite media remind us that tax exile Hamilton is an example of what every black can do. They airbrush all the black racist rappers, ones like the drunk who recently killed 8 while driving at 150mph in an urban environment. Creating black gods because you can’t or won’t deal with illegal migration is facile and ultimately foolish. I know from the incredible pressure building up on me because of the police lies over the last near 14 years, people snap.

The mind is an organ like anything else. It processes all important thinking as a prelude to action. Mental illness is inevitable in a sick society where elites make the rules under the illusion of democracy. Democracy is felt through , hope, housing, food , companionship, common culture, employment and community. White working class people have been losing this since Thatcher came to power. Today’s young are feeling the worst of it. Feminists and liberals think they are building a better world. Wider World politics paints a different picture. .

Britain’s sleaze took another turn down in the depths with revealtions that former Attorney General Geoffrey Cox used his long Brexit holiday, voting remotely from under the West Indain sunshine, drawing £89.000 salary and making £1.5 million for his legal practice.

Britain’s fake democracy, ever more visibly corrupt since BRINO BREXIT, is operated by a herd of politically correct back benchers,. It is led by bombastic inadequate nonentities like Boris Johnson.

It is against this background Hamilton’s virtue signalling on behalf of all blacks should be judged . The world is not about human equality and never will be. Justice would be helpful and the only hope. But there is too much money and politics in law , hence calls for more men to be jailed for rape and domestic violence. That isn’t equality.

Hamilton owes his success to obvious talent , which would not have thrived without a self denying father who took a second job to fund Hamilton’s karting career, where he was talent spotted. His father was a one parent family. It is a pity Hamilton has not more to say about the simple virtues of the average man – who these days is a target for all manner of false allegations which are automatically believed.

Hamilton is not promoting equality. He is promoting divisions and conflict by turning his sport into a theatre for BLM. Like Senna when Schumacher arrived on the scene, Hamilton cannot accept he as had his day, and it is not racist to say so. Some of us are risking our lives for truth and equality. In the police state we risk our freedom at the very least because equality is a joke when so few rich whites and blacks own most of the world and its wealth. The police, funded by the underclass, are their servants.

Lewis Hamilton fumed at F1 bosses for ‘bull****’ decision: ‘They are trying to stop me’

Charlie Bradley  

Hamilton came second to his rival Max Verstappen at the Mexican Grand Prix last night. Ahead of the race, the Mercedes driver called for “respect” during race weekends this week after Verstappen gave the Briton an unsavoury gesture at US Grand Prix last week. The Dutchman also called Hamilton a “stupid idiot” after the two remarkably went side by side in a practice session in Austin. During Thursday’s FIA press conference, Hamilton said: “I’ve been here for a long time, it’s not my first rodeo. “I think at the core of everything, there has to be respect.

Comment The majority vote to leave the EU was predicated on blaming Europe for Britain being so attractive to migrants. Within the increasingly oppressive laws that are becoming ever worse outside EU sanction it is a minefield. Finding words to simply explain this migrant phenomenon is almost impossible. In my view , there are no representative democracies in Europe, but if migration by certain ethnic groups continues at this rate into Britain, our elite and virtue signalling self proclaimed liberals will soon have changed the nation’s social structure into something they can claim to be representative of. Then all will be well, the threatening white ( and some Black natives ) will have died away. All will be well in carbon neutral evergreen paradise.

Sleazy Does It

Piers Morgan, 56, has hit out at the Government on Twitter after their latest U-turn, calling out Boris Johnson. The former Good Morning Britain presenter posted his views to his 7.9 million followers today.

The presenter originally posted a tweet with a picture of the Daily Mail front page, which read: “Shameless MPs sink back into sleaze.”

He captioned the image: “This is disgraceful.

Read More ‘Shows how little Boris cares for democracy’ Piers Morgan rages at Government U-turn (msn.com)

Comment Anyone who thinks Britain is any form of democracy is a fool or of very limited intelligence. East Germany called itself a Democratic Republic, or rather its leaders did. The Assange affair says it all. The obsession with labelling protestors , especially so called far right protestors as terrorists or people who raise voices as abusers. These are just a few examples of how controlled Britain is.

The causes of dissent and anger are not considered because they threaten ‘democracy.’ I come from the age of life on pampered university campuses, before those places became simply a cover for raising the school leaving age and a burden of debt for banker’s profit.

These days you can’t even watch TV advertisements without a subliminal lecture on morality and diversity. Those of us who like watching old films from our younger days have to read and hear a warning that we might be offended rather than get a real social history lesson.

No wonder people are going mad. As I know from experience , the State psychiatrists have a knee jerk response diagnosing paranoid schizophrenia and mind numbing anti psychotic drugs. I was told on the basis of three unrequested 45 minute visits from Dr C R Ramsay, a psychiatrist – specialising in ‘older people’ – that I am psychotic and delusional. I could not have my gender reassignment surgery without taking them, even though I had been on hormones and anti androgens for over 3 years. Significantly, Ramsay was the man who recommended me for sex change , which is mind boggling . Clearly he is incompetent or dishonest whichever way you look at it. Maybe both.

I discovered that police had been monitoring me for years and had advised – with lies about convictions -my GP to inform the London Gender Identity Clinic who then sent Ramsay round after I had been on 15 hour truck driving and unloading shifts over hundreds of miles , out since midnight. He appeared not to believe this or take sight of all the books and articles I had produced for publishers, clearly prejudiced by somebody that they were just more of my delusions. As time has passed, it appears that my psychotic delusion is linked , by these vested interests , to my concerns about the police.

Their view is that I am dangerous and delusional, likely to die by misadventure and would be upset if I saw all the records they have on me. That was in the report to the Gender Identity Clinic. I don’t wish readers to think I am banging a drum for LGBTQI or feminisms. they are very restrictive boxes. In a democracy we would recognise that there are men, women, and individuals. I would like to be considered as ticking the last two boxes without police interference because they are institutionally corrupt and can’t even be trusted to uphold the law. They need a police force to police them, as we had in the Inland Revenue and Education Services during my years in their employment.

Ramsay has survived lying that I refused a second opinion – implying that he was told what to find- and , by dint of police , cost me my truck driving job in the process.. This country’s elite have a concept of national interest. It enables them to close down inconvenient court cases and prosecute whistle blowers. Failing that they just leak unsubstantiated stories about sex and domestic abuse and you have destroyed the threat.

Piers Morgan does not know the half of what goes on in this country because he is part of that elite. But I thank him for his small contribution. It won’t change things, but as the judge said when I was let off for swearing at a CID officer – in September 2018 – who led a 7 man early morning raid on my home the previous February, looking for the brothel that I was allegedly working in and had anonymously informed them of, she said ‘You were doing what the Americans call venting.’ Well soon , if not already, the sleazy going U.K Government will make that illegal for those of us at the bottom.

How Boris Johnson’s pledge to end forest destruction ignores 25m trees Britain is burning for biomass

Comment What more evidence do you need that British elite leadership are conning the masses. Imagine the pollution required to make and dispose of electric vehicles. Note the mass hysteria at the last petrol shortage. How is electric going to replace all the big trucks used to satisfy consumders. Look at the recent crisis caused by Boris’s stupid clicking. Of course they need Covid lockdown. Look at the absurd London Crime Commissioner who suggested diminutive Sarah Everard could have resisted being arrested by that Neanderthal copper Couzens. If she had , he would have warned her of worse consequences at the police station. I have been arrested too many times , so know the reality and the mentality of U.K police.

This country’s authorities do not have to make sense because it is all about them and what they want. I know public servants have comfortable well rewarded lives because I was one. I also know , from doing the job over 14 years, that truck |& van delivery drivers face greater daily dangers than cops , for less money. They don’t get the respect that they deserve .

When are Britain’s police bosses going to give up their large chauffeur driven luxury limousines which they also use for personal business at taxpayer’s expense ? In a multi cultural country with low average literacy , it is very easy to fool most of the people most of the time. R J Cook

Insulate Britain Are “Anti- Democratic Extremists

November 4th 2021

One of Britain’s most senior former police officers says the protesters who have been disrupting roads and airports around London are extremists do not believe in democracy.

Richard Walton, former commander at New Scotland Yard, and head of the counter terrorism command up to 2016 tells Daybreak Europe’s Roger Hearing, the police need stronger legislation to deal with groups like Insulate Britain who he says do not respect the law.

Comment As an HGV driver I was frequently inconvenienced by protestors. I am not a supporter of this movement, but I do support the right to protest – although I never have. Any rank of police officer sounding holier than though and telling us what laws we should have, is something urgently need of protests.

The police are riddled with corruption at all levels. Using the criteria that if you catch one rapist then there must be hundreds of thousands getting away with it, it is fair to assume that the police cannot be trusted to uphold the law when they don’t want to , let alone make the laws. As for Britain’s precious democracy being under threat , then this old top cop is a fool or a knave. Britain is by no stretch of the imagination a democracy.

We now have the politically correct embracing the Royals for their fake consensus. The elite didn’t like it when Prince Charles started knocking Thatcher’s destruction of the social fabric. With such an appalling education system even affecting the now virtue signalling private sector, I see little hope for democracy. Any progression in that direction stopped dead in Thatcher’s 1980s – or should one say the nightmare haties ?.

Salisbury Rail Crash – October 31st 2021.

John Major’s Tory Government were desperate to privatise something and the railways were the only major target left , until Brown and Blair set about the NHS. And this is what we have.

Meanwhile work continues rebuilding the old Oxford Cambridge line which the arrogant stupid patronising Labour Transport Minister Barbara Castle closed in 1967.

One should ask the purpose of this alarming headline , noting the following.

  1. Tests are not reliable.
  2. People do not die simply from Covid 19.
  3. People are not statistics and we thus need to know more about these 74 people who died with comparisons to previous flu epidemics.
  4. If things really are that bad then clearly lockdowns and masks do not work.
  5. What is the specific effect of mass immigration on the NHS ?
  6. Is the NHS well managed and fit for purpose ?
  7. Who s making money off Covid measures ?
  8. Who has and is being ruined by lockdown?
  9. Why are BAME communities hardest hit ?
  10. Virologists are not the same as epidemiologists , why do the latter make spread predictions as if the nation is homogeneous and lock us all down ?
  11. Who is going to pay taxes for the consequences of lockdowns that massively benefit the rich ?
  12. What is to be done about the serious mental health consequences ?
  13. What is tto be done about all the other health conditions consequently neglected by the Covid fixation ? ,

Comment We can blame Margaret Thatcher and the Thatcherite National Socialists , along with an absurd so called Labour Opposition Party preoccupied with nuclear weapons and burgeoning political correctness,, for the ruin of this country. Infrastructure should never have been privatised and asset stripped. As with the railways , about which I have just written a book, we see that the tax payer is the underwriter but sees none of the profits.

I treasure my copies of Thatcher’s two memoirs. They are massive essays in arrogance, conceit, narcissism , ignorance and utter stupidity. But by appealing to greed and short termism, she made the most of our outdated and appalling electoral system. New Labour was born and rode the wave to the current anomie, blaming Europe , so giving us Brexit. Now we have Brexit |( BRINO ) , perhaps some folk will glimpse political reality. RJ Cook

Britain’s Shame & Democracy Sham by R J Cook – October 30th 2021

Julian Assange back in High Court Friday October 29th 2021

The Julian Assange Affair is a telling tale as to the reality of what its leaders and elite media call democracy.

It seems incredible to me that the British Justice system has been pursuing elderly soldiers for alleged war crimes in Northern Ireland yet no mind is paid to the bare faced killing of civilian journalists during the second Gulf War. That whole war was illegal and all about oil prices just like the first one, yet sold to the public as a war to bring democracy to Iraq. How much more evidence must we see for such nonsensical propaganda ?

Of course Chelsea Manning’s activity as an intelligence officer with the U.S military revealed much more. It is a moot point as to whether she should have faced worse punishment for betraying her service with the military or should be treated as a humanitarian whistle blower. I don’t know. All I do know is that when I volunteered for a commission in the Royal Navy, it was made clear that I might one day be called upon to kill without questioning those in authority or spilling secrets. War is dirty and being mealy mouthed about humanitarianism helps nothing.

So we are talking Deep State here, and the State has never been bigger or more ruthless. It is a concept and term incompatible with any theories of democracy.

However, Julian Assange was not with the US or UK military. He was held on fake sex crime allegations in order to get him extradited from the U.K to the U.S , neither country being of which he is a citizen. At the time of his arrest he had changed from Australian to Ecuadoran residency, so the U.S organised bribes and regime change in Ecuador to have Assange extradited.

It is clear that Assange is guilty of no crime, but that apparent high level war criminals must be protected at all cost. It is also clear that when you put highly intelligent innocent people in jail , without hope, you will drive them mad and ultimately kill them. This is happening with Julian Assange and no amount of citizen protest will stop extradition or allow Julian’s freedom.

I was at a party in the House of Commons terrace marquee at the time the second Gulf War was brewing. I questioned the legality of the invasion with the senior New Labour MP who frequently invited me there. I criticised Tony Blair. My friend’s response was ‘Oh , the Boy is learning..’ This man’s cynicism ended our friendship. The last time I saw the man was at another party at the University of East Anglia IN 2005 when I met him with a mutual acquaintance and old Harrovian aristocratic actor. This MP roared out in ridicule ‘Oh my God , he is here, the last radical.’

R J Cook , 2018. She said ‘I am so glad I rejected the opportunity to stand for the Liberal Democrats in 1997 after being kicked out of Labour for questioning the sense of the mid 80s coal miner strike and obsession with Nuclear Disarmament. You pay a high price for principles in our alleged democracy. There is no place for principles in elite politics.’

Penelope Jackson guilty of murder for stabbing husband to death – October 29th 2021

Rachel Hall 

To deal with the climate crisis, the world needs more democracyThese are Hollywood’s best and worst mustaches

A retired accountant has been found guilty of the murder of her husband, a former army Lt Col.

Penelope Jackson, 66, has been found guilty at Bristol crown court of the murder of David Jackson, 78, who she stabbed three times at their home in Berrow, Somerset, on 13 February.

The jury delivered the verdict following a high-profile two-week trial in which Jackson’s defence lawyer, Clare Wade QC, had sought to persuade the jury she had suffered a “loss of control” after being pushed to the edge by decades of intermittent emotional and physical abuse.

More to follow …

Comment Women have carte balance to defend their violence and other domestic abuse with no obvious need for evidence. Feminists inside and outside Parliament want the statute of limitations for their allegations raised to 2 years. There is already no limit for rape. It is no wonder that men are increasingly avoiding marriage, changing sex , going gay and not having children. I most certainly wish I had changed sex when I first seriously thought about it aged 12. When Caroline Flack killed herself rather than face justice for domestic violence, The media luvvies went crazy calling the CPS the ‘Cruel Prosecution Service.’ The dangerous unjust myth is that women are inherently nice, honest and peace loving. That is not true.

Comment I spent 17 years as a member of my local council , most of the time as chair of planning and heading the North Bucks Town & Parish Council Consortium. During this time traffic congestion, speed and inadequate road policing were key issues in an increasingly populated area.

Working in haulage and logistics for 13 years , mainly as a truck driver, gave me opportunity to see the bigger picture. Some people are natural bullies and or stupid, deliberately putting other road users at risk. Others are under impossible pressure on motorways and A roads not built to cope – the planners use a concept called VC ratios which means vehicle to carriage rations. When planning Milton Keynes expansion , we were shown VC ratios of 160 predicted for the M1. That meant 60 vehicles per 100 over capacity. That is a big factor although idiots will see open roads as an opportunity to show off , so sometimes you just can’t win..

As a hard pressed driver with too many miles , lots of unkowns and too many drops for the time available, I have seen a lot of carnage and know what it is like to sit for hours in jams – often running out of legal driving hours. Politicians aren’t interested in this. Lockdown was totally unrealistic and made matters so much worse. People are on their limit and being fed far too many lies from elite media and the political cocoon.

Extinction Rebellion protesters have broken into the UK’s largest oil refinery and scaled two 50ft silos where they have locked themselves to the structures. 

Early on Thursday morning, 15 activists cut the site’s electric perimeter fences and chained themselves to various structures at the ExxonMobil base in Hampshire. 

Some have scaled giant silos and unfurled two banners that proclaim: “Climate Emergency” and “No Future in Fossil fuels “.

Comment The one thing these naïve and simplistic people will not confront is global overpopulation and wider effects on nature and earth’s resources. Carbon dioxide has a role to play in the balance of nature. There is not an endless supply of safe energy for the current growth rates , mainly in what should still be called the third world – because religion and its tyrants won’t allow development. Like dominant white super rich cronies they take it all for themselves. R J Cook

Endless Utter Drivel From British Elite Media – October 26th 2021

Brexit Britain’s minimum wage increase sparks furious Frexit uproar – EU and euro FAILING

The UK Government announced it will increase the minimum wage for around two million workers, with those aged 23 and over to see their pay increase from £8.91 an hour to £9.50 as of April 1. The 59p hourly boost to the so-called “national living wage” will mean a full-time worker on the lowest pay will receive a rise of more than £1,000 per year, according to the Government, in an inflation-busting 6.6 percent hike.

Comment I do not like Macron or what he stands for, but he is no worse that Johnson with his inflated delusional pumped U K. The latter has been a pernicious influence on Europe and remains so. Its minimum wage is commensurate with mass immigration and the cheap labour its rich ruling elite must have for their pleasure bent ultimately planetary destructive life styles. R J Cook

What ? by R J Cook October 26th 2021

Did Roberta kill Robert or was she him all along |?

What ? by R J Cook

Told I had that woman within

That I had her original sin

To be guilty of what I had done

Guilty of having fun

Drove me mad, put me in chains

No need for them to explain.

Tie me up then turn me loose

With a rope tied into  my noose

Leave me dangling on a wire

Keep laughing , my sex is on fire.

Burn us out, hide the shame of truth

Kill any still sign of our youth.

Turn us this way, inside and out

Make such noise don’ t hear us shout.

We are fish in a goldfish bowl

You are sharks to swallow us whole.

What is woman without Adam’s need ?

What is life if no one can bleed ?

What is stone in a world without sun ?

Where so few can have any fun

What is love if we cannot hate ?

Why do you hurry when you can wait ?

What is time if without waste ?

You die because of your haste .

Who asks questions but mustn’t know ?

Why you came and why you must go

What mother gave birth to 2 boys ?

Then drowned them in those toys ?

What mother would have her boy jailed ?

For her lies and all she has failed ?

I know but cannot say

If I do they will lock me away.

Mercedes explain where US GP went wrong for Lewis Hamilton as investigation planned

October 26th 2021

Claire Cottingham 

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff says they will “retrace” their steps to identify mistakes during the United States Grand Prix that saw Max Verstappen take victory over Lewis Hamilton in Austin. Hamilton initially had a good start over the Dutchman, sweeping up the inside into Turn 1 and taking the lead.

Read More Mercedes explain where US GP went wrong for Lewis Hamilton as investigation planned (msn.com)

Comment All these British BLM elite inspired press reports act as if Hamilton has a right to being more times World Champion. Schumacher only achieved the record by cheating. It’s not such a hard act to follow if you have fast twitch muscle response and at least one indulgent parent to take you on to the go kart circuit.

I have been following the trials and tribulations of Lewis Hamilton ever since he did a Senna and forced his rival off the track – with all the incriminating TV footage removed from TV news.

I am utterly sick of the media, especially U.K, using sport to advance BLM. All lives should matter and justice should prevail. It doesn’t and I am angry because justice doesn’t matter and democracy is a sham. We saw all the cr-p with Southgate’s moronic use of mainly blacks to take the Euro penalties. Hamilton is half white but is being set up as a totem for a more times winner of the dreadfully safe boring rich boy’s polluting F1. Hamilton is a tax exile.

The really interesting thing about Hamilton is his dedicated black father, rather than the white mother Hamilton understandably rejected. We mustn’t talk about male virtues and female failings. Hamilton’s success came from a very English black father. But the elite media is only interested in dividing and ruling the masses along race and gender lines. It is sickening and disgusting.

Comment I hardly know what to say or whether it is worth saying anything due to obvious dangers of saying anything out of line. I dropped out of being a parliamentary candidate after the Lib Dems bombarded me with courses on how to talk to the voters. That was in 1997, when Blair took us even further towards an elitist police state. following Thatcher and Major.

It is all about control and every opportunity is taken to crack down on social media. Covid was a gift in limiting social contact and this is the coup d’ grace. MPs ally with a shield of experts and ever increasing policing. They have to do something to protect themselves because lives among the masses are getting worse, with gender and race wars not reliable enough to keep them all preoccupied by blaming and fighing each other.

Insecurity – October 19th 2021

A decade ago I used to hang out in pubs and clubs playing music , singing and talking to friends. In one such place I enjoyed the company of a friend in the security services. He offered the opinion , over drinks, that this country was heading for social collapse. His wife was in the same line of work and agreed with him. So did I, since I have cast a worried eye over events ever since Margaret Thatcher’s gang started destroying and asset stripping the social and economic fabric.

My old security services friend lamented that politicians had played to the gallery filled with ignorant frightened masses, to empower the police to incompetently take over their powers simply to create a visible vote winning presence. We both agreed that terrorism suited their purposes and they did not want a professional solution.

And so we have the self interested posturing going on hysterically in Parliament because an anti illegal immigration MP has been slaughtered by an Islamic lunatic from the Somalian war zone. Posturing Priti Patel is leading a campaign for a ludicrously named ‘David’s Law putting all the blame on social media.

Apart from the naked self interest of posturing incompetent self interested politicians frightened for their pampered pleasured lives, they grab any excuse to limit free communication among the masses. Personally, if I have anything to say I don’t hide my name, which is why I am currently facing jail. But some whistle blowers want anonymity and we should want to hear them roar.

The Somalian who killed MP David was not groomed over social media. We have serious issues with what goes on in the Mosques. Denying the reality of fundamental Islam and turning it on the white desperate masses will only make matters worse. This country is on fire. The elite don’t care. They have even brought back the Russian bogeyman. It is almost funny.

EWR / HS2 RAILWORKS – Counting it out October 18th 2021

Fleets of 18 tonner tipper trucks have been pounding the roads around Buckingham as they hurry the aggregate needed for the new rail developments. The privatised ventures offer big profit and bounty from rising property values and massive new housing estates as those who can afford it flee to the vanishing countryside. R J Cook October 18th 2021.

The east west link will cross over the northern stub of the Great Central via a new bridge.  HS2 have powers over a three and a half km section of the EWR south and west of Calvert. They also have powers over 1.5 km beyond the old Claydon loop east of HS2 for earthworks signalling and track laying. This is called the HS2 / EWRA integration area.  A maintenance facility is planned for HS2, meaning the waste plant had to be moved with the old line replaced. Nearly 2 million cubic metres of earth had to be excavated along with 4 million cubic metres of back fill in this area alone.
HS2 had the advantage of importing aggregates by pre existing railway. Between December 10th 2020 and july 2021 , 300 trains carried 1650 tons of stone, each , from Tytherongton Quarry in South Gloucestershire.   – unloaded by massive grabs. HS2 worker Brian Smith said . ‘That much coming by road would have taken years to deliver. But EWR has no choice and there has been impact on the local roads.

Comment There is no doubt that Britain’s elite leadership are clever in the nastiest money grabbing ways. Those at the top are arrogant and many trace their upper crust ancestry back for centuries. They decide what happens.

Britain’s elite with their media wanted Middle Eastern and Afghan wars for power and oil, not the democracy and women’s rights they feigned it to be. Dividing and ruling the masses along gender and race lines is a time honoured trick for these people who patronise and frighten the masses as routine. They multiply laws to protect their deceit.

Everything is about them and their monopoly of wealth. gender and BAME equality is setting the masses on an internecine war without end. As for HGV drivers, I spent from 2008- 20 fully employed in the logistics industry, mainly as a driver. I know that Britain was not interested in training home grown drivers who needed at least £2000 to qualify for Class One. They preferred to import drivers on the cheap from the EU. Leaving the EU has caused a crisis compounded by Covid lockdown.

Elite politicians have no interest in the hard realities of the HGV world. They are patronising and incompetent which is why they fooled so many into Brexit chaos and confusion. It is never their fault. More rules and more police are their answers to everything. They have done such harm to the EU, infesting them with rules , regulations and secrecy before disconnecting but still blaming them.

Read More Police commissioner faces hundreds of complaints over comments after Sarah Everard murder (msn.com)

Comment Anyone who has never been arrested has no right to an opinion about being streetwise on the matter. I have been, several times. My current situation is sub judice, so I must limit my personal observations. Suffice it to say that the police come on very strong. PC Benjamin Monk’s killing of a black former premier League footballer and the attempted police cover up which lasted 5 years, rather demonstrates that. The police and CPS have been exposed as conspirators and liars.

White Men , not just blacks , are the usual victims. Women do not expect it , which is why a police officer using Covd lockdown to ‘arrest ‘ , abduct , rape and murder Sarah Everard caused such outrage. The police are dangerous and being given increasing powers. During my last 18 hour session in a dirty cold police cell, dark and hearing other prisoners screaming, banging and shouting, I nearly succeeded in strangling myself under the covers. I would rather die than live in a police state. Current protests and lockdowns are being used to further advance police powers. Their concurrent increasing lack of accountability is terrifying to me.

Mass immigration benefits the rich at the poor masses expense.

The elite are responsible for making Africa a dumping ground for consumer waste and rubbish on a continent ruled over by black dictator cronies. This won’t get mentioned in BBC’s Black History Week. It doesn’t suit their white upper Middle Class agenda. R.J Cook

National Grid Gas Transmission – the company that owns, manages, and operates the network – has said Britain will have a “positive supply margin”, meaning it can access more gas than is being used during peak demand.

In two separate “winter outlook” reports, the energy company sought to offer reassurance that Britain should not face blackouts but said the risk of power shortages this winter will be the highest in five years. They said that Britain should not run out of gas, but must be prepared to outbid other countries to secure scarce global supplies. It comes following a global squeeze of supplies that has seen prices reach record highs.

Comment Britain’s elite played a key role in destabilising the Islamic world just as it set up black elite dictatorships post empire. Withdrawal from Afghanistan, and a war that was a great success for arms and plane makers, is being used as an excuse to encourage more waves of Muslim migrants. The British elite don’t want Europe to disrupt this.

Cheap labour and rise of religion has always been their choice as a basis for their exploitation and profit of and from the ignorant masses. Europe was perfect cover. Brexit shows them for what they are – unscrupulous liars. Their idiocy knows no bounds.

The government couldn’t wait to tear down its power stations, blaming Europe and in the name of reducing carbon footprint. They don’t mind whose carbon footprint they profit from , which is why they are happy to import cheap Chinese goods.

The absurdity of the British is manifest in so many ways, which is why they posture and moralise to Europe, especially France, while depending on the continent for 47% of its increasingly expensive power supply. They are also proponents of keeping Russia isolated along with its cheap natural gas. The elite hate the white masses and pretend to care about BAME . This group is a stick to beat the white masses with and a wonderful distraction from political heavily policed repression. R J Cook,

Undocumented migrants with HGV licences are sent official letters encouraging them to work – October 5th 2021

UK weather: rainstorms to turn to dry conditions by WednesdayDoctor Who’s Colin Baker on Big Finish, Jodie Whittaker, and who should play the…

Undocumented people who hold HGV licences have been sent official letters encouraging them to help stem the fuel shortage – despite the fact that they have no right to work.

Migrants who have overstayed their visas have been told their “valuable skills and experience have never been more needed than they are now” and asked to “consider returning” to work in the HGV sector.

The letters, sent by the Department for Transport (DfT), were part of the same mass mailout that also asked ambulance drivers and paramedics to become HGV drivers.

It comes afterThe Independent revealed that thousands of Germans residing in the UK had also received the letter, even if they had never driven an HGV vehicle before.

Comment I said at the time, that Brexit was about a nasty echelon of the British elite wanting to drag down the masses with the absurd delusion that they would get their country back. There is a lot wrong with Europe .with Britain having done more than their share of the damage. But Britain is worse and a far more effective police state. Now they are making it all up as they go along, with Covid exaggeration , BLM , racism and domestic violence always handy as a distraction from a rotten system that causes all of these problems in the first place.

I never imagined witnessing food shortages or the absence of fuel in petrol stations in a western industrialised nation. This usually happened in European countries in wartime. However, this is what Britain is currently experiencing. The official story (or lie?) is that this is because of the Covid pandemic, or that it is a Europe-wide issue. The truth is that Brexit is causing a shortage of workers, including truck drivers, many of whom were from eastern Europe.

‘Men aren’t even a part of it’: Why we need to change the way we talk about gendered violence – October 2nd 2021

Women should not become the statistic

The now-confirmed murder of Sarah Everard has rattled everyone I know. Friends have been in touch with safety tips, I’ve timed jogs so I don’t have to go outside alone at night, and women have taken to social media in their thousands to bravely share their own stories of sexual harassmentassault, and violence.

Read More ‘Men aren’t even a part of it’: Why we need to change the way we talk about gendered violence | Evening Standard

Comment It is particularly nauseating and telling with regard to how opportunistic women and mainstream media are pushing this young woman’s murder as being an issue for all men. The issue is with the arrogant institutionally corrupt U.K Police culture where fake well paid self conscious heroes thrive , preen , strut and posture. It is against this background that this sicko cop and those who knew him, that we should be talking about what is wrong and how systemically rotten the police are – the London Met being one of the worst. It is the police who should be up for investigation and reform. Couzens was a repeat offender. The police are the problem. Until they are reformed it matters not what the officer’s gender or race happens to be. men are scapegoats.

Patel has made matters worse by renewing Dick’s contract. This dreadful conceited woman gave a remote order for her imbecilic sub moronic plain clothes forearms officers to shoot an innocent 28 year old Brazilian , while he sat on tube train at Stockwell. She should have been sacked , not given a secret job then brought back to the London top job. What a two finger sign to the young man’s devastated mother. But she wasn’t posh so who cares ?.

The killer cops in this case, chose to rubbish a female eye witness’s reputation. Women should not trust the police. No decent member of the public should. The precious bond mentioned by overpaid Dick, was broken for those of us with a brain long ago. How do so many awful people get into the police.?

Couzens was a repeat offender. People will have forgotten how vile police thug Steven Harwood got off of killing innocent Ian Tomlinson in broad daylight on camera. Their tame police surgeon said Ian was going to die at that very moment mad Harwood attacked him anyway.

West Mercia’s senior management team spent years trying to protect their PC Monk from justice for his brutal killing of a black footballer. With so many young male migrant gangs running out of control in London, the police and their appalling politicians see clamping down and condemning all lower class men as a female vote winner and convenient way of avoiding being called racist by targeting the real criminals.

Meanwhile female violence against men is blamed on the men victims for provoking it. But it doesn’t work the other way around. These are very dangerous times to be a white man.

Read More Boris Johnson says public ‘can trust police’ after Sarah Everard murder | ITV News

Comment You can’t trust Boris Johnson let alone his police. Johnson looks and talks down his nose. Here we have the same old rubbish that you can fix our institutionally corrupt police with more females and BAME. Dick and her contemporary Sarah Thornton are wonderful examples of why women officers are no more trustworthy than men. A police officer friend told me years ago how corrupt officers had ganged up on his girlfriend, who was in his view the best CID officer on his force. Chief Constable Sue Sim was hounded and driven out by senior officer bullies.

Pandering to this usual simplification that women are somehow morally superior in a public body that I know from experience, to be institutionally corrupt, tells us more about what a menace Johnson – the man who sold the Brexit rubbish- is to progress. He is an arrogant privileged menace to what is left of our freedoms. He knows it won’t be him locked up for years for a rape he didn’t do – unlike the Irishman who did 17 years because corrupt West Mercia Police had to meet its targets. Only a fool or another police officer would trust the British police.

The 48-year-old was linked to the incident at a McDonald’s in Swanley, Kent, but, although his car was reported to officers, he was not named as a suspect and the investigation remains incomplete.

Read More Wayne Couzens may have committed more crimes, including one just days before he killed Sarah Everard (msn.com)

Comment It is interesting how this dreadful murder was media acceptable to be described as reason for an all male curfew. No hint of prejudice there and no whiff of comment upon what sort of special qualities Police Chiefs boast of seeking from prospective recruits.

It is very difficult to get complaints against the police investigated let alone to stick. The higher up the accused officers are , the more they close ranks to accuse their accusers. They will do anything to avoid exposure, with underlings desperate to curry favour by corrupting so called investigations into high level exposure. Even if there were officers decent enough to try , they would become isolated , with corrupt officers making their lives impossible. They even did this to Chief Constable Sue Sim , driving her out of office and harassing her in civilian life.

The so called Independent Office for Police Complaints is not independent. Chief Constables have over riding power to block, fabricate & hide evidence and corrupt. Very little effort has been made to deal with this horrendous social and justice issue. When it threatens to happen , the Police Federation and Chief Officers come out in force to remind us how brave they are and that their job is difficult enough without having to be truly accountable. Once in a blue moon their corruption and miscarriages of justice , in hand with target driven CPS, are revealed. Most of the time they get away with it because of the gullible frightened masses.

Oh My God ! More from F.S – October 1st 2021

It’s been reported recently that high gas prices have led to large chemical manufacturers shutting down operations until prices stabilise. This includes things like food grade CO2, hence shortages of fizzy drinks. What I didn’t know: these companies buy huge quantities of gas in advance, at a very low price. If prices go up enough, they resell their allocation on the wholesale market rather than using it themselves. Even if they have to shut down production for a few weeks, they make more money. And then the government weighs in – and pays them £20 million to encourage them to start production again..

A theory I’ve heard. Petrol and diesel have a relatively short shelf life. Fuel sales dropped dramatically last year because of lockdowns. Therefore, fuel companies need to offload old stock – and also clear the way for new formula E10 storage. So what better way than creating a panic so you get through that stockpile double quick? All it needs is a word or two in the right ears, and this all started because of BP and Shell releasing statements about driver shortages.

YouTube says it will soon remove any content that argues the Covid vaccine can cause serious side-effects and is unsafe to use. Matt Halprin, the Global Head of Trust and Safety at the Google-owned company, is alarmed by the presence of “vaccine misinformation” across the world. For example, vaccine scepticism relating to concerns over infertility will be struck from the platform.

Presumably this means the official government data here and in the USA that lists all side effects up to and including death, and provides numbers affected, is misinformation.
This is exactly what the Soviet Union did.

Britian’s elite and chattering classes are the only ones who seem to take political correctness seriously and regard hypocrisy as an art form. Its lawmakers excel with a production line of new laws to keep ‘us’ safe , promising ever more police to enforce the process as we see with Andy Burnham’s Manchester.

Facing up to real issues and their causes are not for U.K Plc. So we come to Boris being snubbed on climate change. For years Britain’s ruling class were a pernicious rule obsessed influence on Europe, blaming the EU for every form of pettiness so imposed , whilst blaming Europe for the migrant crisis which they want. They championed money making Middle Eastern wars in the name of women’s rights and democracy , whilst in reality native rights and democracy were a myth.

Their negative impact has been massive. Mass migration into this fake Nirvana land serves this bumptious truly privileged people like Boris with cheap labour, a resurgence of religious morality with all its controls and an underclass they can use to lambast the native masses as racist if they object.

Brexit, especially in the light of the Good Friday Agreement was an absurdity. But Britain’s elite preferred it to playing a positive role in EU reform. The EU makes an even better whipping boy when you are on the outside and to hell with the masses who can be relied on not to understand what is going on and why.

So we have this nasal voiced Boris windbag posturing to appear Churchillian , pontificating on climate change. Other countries of note , know they cannot abandon fossil fuel just like that. The world population , notably where religion has grip and force , is out of control. That is the root of climate change.

This appallingly dangerous situation is compounded by political and mass media deceptions that migrants coming here can have everything they desire , just like that on this crowded little island where 90 % of the population live on 10 % of the land. Meanwhile , the other 10 % live a life of jet setting highly polluting patronising privilege telling us lower orders to love one another and suck it up. It is utterly sickening. R J Cook

Taken For Granted – From F.S September 30th 2021

Grant Shapps, Minister of Transport – from Wikipedia. His other alleged misdeeds include bullying, for which he was fired from a ministerial post, and (under a pseudonym) re-editing his Wikipedia entry so it was less embarrassing.If this was fiction it would be hilarious. From now on I shall refer to him as Corinne.  

Grant started his working life as photocopier sales rep. In 1990, aged 22,[19] Shapps founded PrintHouse Corporation,[24] a design, print, website creation and marketing business in London,[11][25] based on a collapsed printing business he purchased from the receiver.[26] He stepped down as a director in 2009,[27] but remained the majority shareholder.[26]Shapps founded a web publishing business, How To Corp Limited, with his wife while he was recovering from cancer.[28] 

The company marketed business publications and software. The existence of at least three people who allegedly provided testimonials for the company has been questioned.[29] Shapps stood down as a director in July 2008; his wife remained as director until the company was dissolved in 2014.[30]In September 2012, Google blacklisted 19 of the Shapps’s business websites for violating rules on copyright infringement related to the web scraping-based TrafficPayMaster software sold by them.[31][32] Shapps’s web marketing business’s 20/20 Challenge publication also drew criticism. It cost $497 and promised customers earnings of $20,000 in 20 days. Upon purchase, the “toolkit” was revealed to be an ebook, advising the user to create their own toolkit and recruit 100 “Joint Venture Partners” to resell it for a share of the profits.[33]Shapps’s use of the names 

Michael Green,Corinne Stockheath and Sebastian Fox attracted controversy in 2012. He denied having used a pseudonym after entering parliament and, in 2014, threatened legal action against a constituent who had stated on Facebook that he had. In February 2015 he told LBC Radio presenter Shelagh Fogarty, “Let me get this absolutely clear … I don’t have a second job and have never had a second job while being an MP. End of story.”[34]However, in March 2015, Shapps admitted to having had a second job whilst being an MP, and practising business under a pseudonym.[35][36] In his admission, he stated that he had “over-firmly denied” having a second job.[37] 

Under the name Michael Green, Shapps had offered customers a “get-rich-quick scheme” costing $497, and promised customers a “toolkit” that would earn them $20,000 in 20 days, provided they followed its instructions.[38] In March 2015, Dean Archer, the constituent previously threatened with legal action by Shapps, threatened Shapps with legal action.[39][40][needs update]…In August 2018, the Financial Times reported[94] that it had discovered a “secret pay deal” between Shapps and OpenBrix, a

British blockchain property portal company. The story alleged that Shapps would have received a payment in cryptocurrency tokens with a future value of up to £700,000. Shapps resigned from OpenBrix and from his position as chairman of the all-party parliamentary group on blockchain which he had founded. Subsequently, Jo Platt, an opposition politician, called for an enquiry into Shapps’ conduct, although Shapps maintained that he had confirmed with the standards commissioner that he was not required to register the interest, and that he had recorded the conversation with the relevant official.[95]

When I was a young student of A Level Economics – where I was top of the class – I learned about the concept of abnormal profits. It was the late 1960s, when the Slater Walker partnership made asset stripping acceptable. By 1979, the vile greedy Thatcher government was in power en route to abolishing exchange controls and the Monopolies & Mergers Commission were soon thrown out of the window.

Thatcher and her nasty clique had overthrown Ted Heath, the only Tory leader to nationalise anything for the public good – later to be smeared as master of a child sex abuse ring. When Heath had referred to the unacceptable face of capitalism , he was doomed.

He was way out of time. After Thatcher came the Blair Brown partnership, full blown globalisation , more evil spin doctors , oil wars and the Covid con trick. That con trick made the super rich ever more hideously rich. The banks have never had it so good and they want more. Local branches are no good to them which is why Buckingham Barclays and TSB up the road in Winslow, are two of hundreds closed down. This absurd little van is just a sop to the gullible masses. They have followed the Post Office example.

Meanwhile the government and tame elite owned media have the gall to talk about ‘the communities’ and democracy. Common People have to embrace on line banking , as we ‘progress’ to a cashless society , with our privacy violated , vulnerability to fraud and more taxation – because the super rich won’t be paying for more wars , heavy handed corrupt policing or our other cash hungry lumbering inefficient intrusive public services.

Latest U.K Covid figures make for interesting reading. A 99.9% survival rate – you could mistake Covid for just another common cold virus if you were not careful – albeit a modified one.

It means that the government/deep state etc are deliberately fabricating – and then prolonging – a health emergency so as to create a public climate of fear. Why would they do this in a so called western style democracy? Are they really all that stupid?

One of the sub committees that reports to the SAGE characters is one that specialises in behavioural psychology. Those clowns are responsible for the lockdown measures, then easing before the plebeian riots start. This is a calculated suppression of the plebs.

I can’t find any fault with this analysis.

If people are scared they are easily controlled – and they also don’t engage logic (to the limited extent this is possible, after decades of tick box education). Those of us who are less susceptible to the programming/more cynical can quote indisputable facts and figures until we’re blue in the face – and after blank and uncomprehending looks, what response do you get? ”Well, you may be right, but…’; ‘It’s better to be safe than sorry…’; ‘But it’s only a mask/vaccine/short lockdown…’; ‘But they wouldn’t do that…’.

Add to this attitude media suppression – so where there are riots (France, Australia, etc.) they’re not reported. The attached indicates why censorship is so easy: when advertising revenue is shrinking all the time, media bosses aren’t going to bite the hand that feeds them.

The genocide will be more difficult to explain away. My guess is it will be blamed on ‘a variant’, if anyone even notices – and the unvaxxed will be rounded up because it’ll all be their fault (thereby disproving decades of received wisdom on viruses and their transmission – but let’s not split hairs). You may have seen that someone who’s been vaccinated doesn’t count as vaccinated until 14 days later. This means all deaths that occur in that window are being put down to Covid or other causes – not the vaccine. Handy. There’s also growing evidence that if the initial jabs don’t get you, the boosters will. As people are jabbed four, five or more times, deaths will gradually increase. It won’t be one big cataclysmic event, and I imagine no one will join the dots. 

Also relevant: in Israel the number of people vaccinated has dropped from over 70% to 20% in a week. How is this even possible? Well, they’re now defining ‘vaccinated’ as having had the booster. If they do this every time, it’ll be a reason to keep on stabbing people to get back to the 80% target. And as there’s a vaccine passport system in place now, you have to play along to keep your privileges. Those of us who know anything about history would have thought the Israelis would have been slightly averse to state behaviour like this.

This is all beyond Orwell.

Meanwhile if you track certain stocks, wealthy individuals and other privileged groups etc, then Covid has done wonders for many of their investments: they keep going up.

Tightening funding, cuts to government spending will cause a dramatic collapse in the prices of the assets held by the global population beneath the global ruling class. They will then sweep in and buy up everyone else’s former property in a banker led fire sale. Their own money is held in a shadow global banking system behind a opaque firewall.

The global population – now surplus to the elite’s needs thanks to technology and global free movement of people in the south to replacing the ageing northern slave classes – will decline as people starve to death, die prematurely from ill health or suicide.

If anyone notices this genocide in the developed north then another terrorist threat will be invented or given birth to by the CIA/MI5/whatever the five eyes governments can manufacture. It will be absurd but the brain dead conscious less public will believe it all. 

Failing that another unwinnable war like Afghanistan will be started to distract attention. It’s bed for me now so will speak more tomorrow.  

On Careers by F.S

My feeling is that conventional careers are probably finished. As for staying in the same job for your whole working life – people just don’t expect to do that now. The next few years are going to be interesting. Many more jobs will disappear because of robots, including things like truck driving. Then universal basic income will come in – to disguise the massive unemployment, if nothing else. Most people will become serfs – completely dependent on the state for food and shelter, and any other basics the government deigns to hand out (for good behaviour?), but with absolutely no money for anything else. Crime will rocket, because people will still want more than just basic existence. The uber-wealthy will withdraw to their islands and guarded estates. There will be almost no one left in the middle ground.

I’m reminded of the classic opening line of J.G. Ballard’s novel High Rise: “Later, as he sat on his balcony eating the dog, Dr Robert Laing reflected on the unusual events that had taken place within this huge apartment building during the previous three months.”

Trucking it up , A Trucker’s Tale from F.S – Posted September 28th 2021

Murphy Truck , one of hundreds of aggregate deliveries every month to EWR rebuilding, Buckingham September 29th , Image by R J Cook , Appledene Photographics.

So, you are running out of food on the shelves, fuel in the garages, you can’t buy things you need, because the shops can’t get their supplies.

Why is that?  

A shortage of goods?  No

A shortage of money?  No

A shortage of drivers to deliver the goods?  Well, sort of.

There isn’t actually a shortage of drivers, what we have, is a shortage of people who can drive who are willing to drive any more.  You might wonder why that is.  I can’t answer for all drivers, but I can give you the reason I no longer drive.  Driving was something I always yearned to do as a young boy, and as soon as I could, I managed to get my driving licence, I even joined the army to get my HGV licence faster, I held my licence at the age of 17.  It was all I ever wanted to do, drive trucks, I had that vision of being a knight of the roads, bringing the goods to everyone, providing a service everyone needed.  What I didn’t take into account was the absolute abuse my profession would get over the years.

I have seen a massive decline in the respect this trade has, first, it was the erosion of truck parking and transport café’s, then it was the massive increase in restricting where I could stop, timed weight limits in just about every city and town, but not all the time, you can get there to do your delivery, but you can’t stay there, nobody wants an empty truck, nobody wants you there once they have what they did want.

Compare France to the UK.  I can park in nearly every town or village, they have marked truck parking bays, and somewhere nearby, will be a small routier, where I can get a meal and a shower, the locals respect me, and have no problems with me or my truck being there for the night.

Go out onto the motorway services, and I can park for no cost, go into the service area, and get a shower for a minimal cost, and have freshly cooked food, I even get to jump the queues, because others know that my time is limited, and respect I am there because it is my job.  Add to that, I even get a 20% discount of all I purchase.  Compare that to the UK £25-£40 just to park overnight, dirty showers, and expensive, dried (under heat lamps) food that is overpriced, and I have no choice but to park there, because you don’t want me in your towns and cities.

Ask yourself how you would feel, if doing your job actually cost you money at the end of the day, just so you could rest.

But that isn’t the half of it.  Not only have we been rejected from our towns and cities, but we have also suffered massive pay cuts, because of the influx of foreign drivers willing to work for a wage that is high where they come from, companies eagerly recruited from the eastern bloc, who can blame them, why pay good money when you can get cheap labour, and a never ending supply of it as well.  Never mind that their own countries would suffer from a shortage themselves, that was never our problem, they could always get people from further afield if they needed drivers.

We were once seen as knights of the road, now we are seen as the lepers of society.  Why would anyone want to go back to that?

If you are worried about not getting supplies on your supermarket shelves, ask your local council just how well they cater for trucks in your district.

I know Canterbury has the grand total of zero truck parking facilities, but does have a lot of restrictions, making it difficult for trucks to stop anywhere.

Do you want me to go back to driving trucks?  Give me a good reason to do so.  Give anyone a good reason to take it up as a profession.

Perhaps once you work out why you can’t, you will understand why your shelves are not as full as they could be.

I tried it for over 30 years, but will never go back, you just couldn’t pay me enough.

Thank you to all those people who have shared this post.  I never expected such a massive response, but am glad that this message is getting out there.  I really hope that some people who are in a position to change just how bad it is for some drivers, can influence the powers that be to make changes for the better.  Perhaps some city and town councillors have seen this, and are willing to bring up these issues at their council meetings.  It surely cannot be too much to ask of a town/city to provide facilities for those who are doing so much to make sure their economies run and their shops and businesses are stocked with supplies.  I never wanted any luxuries, just somewhere safe to park, and some basic ablutions that are maintained to a reasonable standard.  I spent my nights away from my home and family for you, how much is it to ask that you at least give me access to some basic services.

There are tens, maybe hundreds of thousands of licence holders just like me, who will no longer tolerate the conditions.  So the ball is firmly in the court of the councils to solve this problem.

Have just read that the DVLA has a backlog of 40,000 HGV licences. How convenient. F.S

Fight breaks out at fuel pumps as petrol stations run dry
September 28th 2021

Tensions rise at one petrol station in north London on Sunday, prompting a scuffle to break out on the forecourt, as thousands of petrol stations run dry.

Army tanker drivers have been put on standby in preparation to deliver fuel in order to ease the chaos at petrol stations, the Government has announced. Military drivers will get specialised training in preparation for their deployment while certain HGV licences will be extended to help tackle the issue, ministers announced on Monday. The move comes after many filling stations ran dry after drivers made a dash for the pumps amid fears a shortage of tanker drivers would hit supplies.

“Panic buying is underpinned by the fear of scarcity,” says Dr Gregory Warwick, chartered psychologist at Quest Psychology Services. “The motivation is for us to panic buy in order feel as though we are back in control of the situation.”

In the case of petrol shortages, filling up your car is how you gain control, explains psychologist and author of The Leader’s Guide to Resilience, Audrey Tang: “It’s ‘I don’t know what’s going on here, everything’s going a little bit crazy, but if I go and get my petrol, I’m in control’.”

Is Britain running on empty? Here’s what we’re short of and the industries under threat – September 24th 2021

From “cancelled” Christmas dinners to numerous energy suppliers collapsing and items missing from supermarket shelves, many industry experts claim Britain is in crisis.

The UK economy has been disrupted by several factors including labour shortages, new immigration rules and the lingering effects of the pandemic.

There is estimated to be a shortfall of around 100,000 lorry drivers, and soaring energy costs have also added to the cost of food production and logistics

Pfizer booster shot: The ‘unexpected’ side effect after third dose – Pfizer finding – September 19th 2021

A drop-off in antibody levels after a second dose of the vaccine has informed the recommendation of a third booster shot for over-50s and younger adults with health conditions in the UK. Invitations to book the third coronavirus vaccine will today be sent out to more than a million Britons in a bid to “strengthen the wall of defence” against COVID-19 created by the vaccine. Higher protection in vulnerable groups offers hope of avoiding a spike in hospital admissions during the approaching winter months. In new data submitted to the Food and Drug Administrations [FDA], Pfizer has outlined the different side effects to expect from a third dose of their vaccine.

Closure of government’s Covid taskforce leads to ‘brain drain’ ahead of feared winter surge – September 18th 2021

Read More Closure of government’s Covid taskforce leads to ‘brain drain’ ahead of feared winter surge (msn.com)

Comment This so called Independent article tells me all I need to know about these saints advising the government. They are in it for the money. If they are that good they will have other jobs. Ferguson’s Imperial College has made a fortune from Covid chaos. there is no evidence that lockdowns do any more than scare people. Age , pre existing conditions and life style are key infection cause and only 1% who catch it actually die with it as an associated cause.

Influenza , which has a higher kill rate than Covid, has officially disappeared – but tests can’t accurately tell the difference. Figures have been deliberately inflated by these tests and now we have virtually mandatory testing for children. I know from experience of the Pfeizer double jab , that there are side effects. These jabs are not even protection.

It is clear that the upper middle class Whitehall clique are out in support of their buddies on lucrative secondment. These buddies are not clinicians. they model spread but must be careful to stay WOKE , so not link it to high density BAME lifestyle areas , mass Third World immigration, poverty, appalling hospitals where C difficile and MRSA kill rate gets no attention or the vile old peoples privatised care homes. They work simply on numbers taking no account of key differences. The object of the exercise is to avoid natural herd immunity , stoke up fear, modify behaviour to control dissent and cut work load in the public sector. It is always about money and control.

Health minister at centre of cronyism allegations sacked in reshuffle

Andrew Woodcock  

A health minister at the centre of a series of controversies over the government’s handling of coronavirus has been given the sack in Boris Johnson’s reshuffle.

Lord Bethell said he was “sad to be standing down” from the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), where he was a surprise appointment as minister for innovation at the outset of the Covid-19 crisis in March 2020.

He became a lightning rod for cronyism allegations in relation to multi-million pound contracts for PPE, tests and equipment, after telling the House of Lords that in the hunt for supplies ministers used “a very large network of contacts” and “informal arrangements”.

Horner: Hamilton could have been penalised too – September 18th 2021

Hamilton is a prominent champion of the BLM movement which will gain massive kudos if he beats Schumacher’s world title record. Hence there is enormous media bias in his favour. His selfish driving in a previous incident wrote off his rivals car and footage of this crash seems to have disappeared. This rival could have been killed , but our WOKE media doesn’t want to know.

People are being played here. Gareth Southgate did the same by picking the wrong players to take the Euro Cup final penalties. This was to make a point about black players being important and sparking outrage when the inevitable happened. Sport is bread and circuses . It is about an elite making money and distracting groups of people into a false sense of identity or awareness of what is really going on.

Comment Dr Celia Clark of Portsmouth University and myself encountered this mentality in our book ‘The Tricorn, The Life and Death of a Sixties Icon.’

There are so many ludicrous references to Britain being a democracy these days. It is a class system ruled by a wealthy paranoid elite with multiple lackeys, including the barrow boy property developers who have no interest in Britain’s industrial heritage.

Britain’s industrial revolution changed the landscape and life styles with harsh consequences for many. For worthwhile progress , doing away with a lot of the old is arguably a good thing. However, it is the automatic greed driven mindset of the few that should cause concern , along with their ability to override laws that are obviously only extant to control the masses who worry them. So it was no big problem for Nadine Dorries to ignore the listing.

Had it been a householder wanting to fit plastic window frames to an old listed thatched cottage , or even get rid of the cumbersome costly thatch, there would have been an inquiry and prevention order. That is life in Britain , which may be better than Afghanistan in some ways , but it is awful compared to the Britain I grew up in – and getting worse as a police state.

No 10 accused of sidelining behaviour experts on latest Covid measures

Hannah Devlin Science correspondent 

Senior scientific advisers have publicly accused the government of sidelining behavioural experts and appearing unwilling to listen to “uncomfortable truths” on vaccine passports and masks during the pandemic.

The scientists told the Guardian that their input to the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) was apparently no longer wanted owing to the expansion of in-house expertise.

Comment When people voted for Brexit they were being conned about getting their country back. The elite put this on the agenda because the EU were talking tough on taxing the rich.

The proof of the pudding is there in the face of ever more Draconian police state measures, while people are fooled by blaming the white masses for all of the problems in Africa and BAME in general. Immigration is at record levels, although it has been made difficult for white East Europeans.

British justice was party to sex crime lies about Julian Assange and still has him locked up on behalf of the U.S deep state. EU’s progressive laws are vanishing under the cloak of Covid care. It’s just what the ever richer minority wanted so watch out for ever more laws and pettiness like the one above.

What we know about myocarditis and the Covid-19 vaccines – September 15th 2021

What we know about myocarditis and the Covid-19 vaccines

The rollout of Covid-19 vaccinations for children aged 12 to 15 is due to begin in schools next week after being approved by the UK’s four chief medical officers.

The decision-making process has been “long and, at times, seemingly painful”, said the BBC’s health correspondent Nick Triggle, because it is a “finely balanced call”.

Healthy children are at a low risk from Covid, meaning the benefit of vaccination is only marginal, with efforts to avoid school disruption just tipping the balance in favour of jabs.

Marsha de Cordova, the shadow equalities secretary, has resigned from Keir Starmer’s shadow cabinet with immediate effect citing a desire to focus on her marginal constituency.

Read More Labour’s shadow equalities secretary quits as does junior minister (msn.com)

Comment Labour’s difficulties with transgender rights exposes the essence of their hypocrisy and what equality means to the party’s essence. Feminists generally don’t like transsexuals which is why they are not in the LGBTQI coral. Enough will never be enough for them because they are not about equality. They combine ongoing complaints about being victims with obvious assertions of superiority. It is interesting how many new laws have been made to support this. Labour’s support for BAME and BLM is disingenuous.

For all of its alleged modernisation, the Labour Party always has to have underdogs , the problems must never be solved. Mass immigration and virtue signalling over Afghan refugees s perfect for them. But when it comes to transsexuals, the Labour cloistered and self centred feminist contingent sees them as all potential rapists, sadly trying to disguise themselves to look like the abundant and intoxicatingly irresistible British beauties. Then they pounce. Feminist prejudices are inductively O.K and politically correct. Masculinity is toxic and all white men are privileged. The idea that equality should be about equality of responsibility is like showing the cross to Dracula.

Russia’s staggering military spending exposed as Putin’s army over takes USA – chart

Pip Murrison

Russia’s military expenditure is alarming; the amount it spends as a percentage of its GDP has overtaken the US for at least six years now. As the US’s defence budget diminishes will it be able to keep pugnacious Putin in check? Should the West be concerned?

Our World in Data has tracked the military expenditure of countries from around the world.

Their data from 2014 has revealed a worrying trend.

From 2003 to 2013, the US managed to keep Russian President Vladimir Putin in check by spending a higher percentage of its GDP on its military than Russia did.

However, since 2014 Russian spending in proportion to its GDP has remained higher than the US.

This spiked to an alarming 5.45 percent compared to the US’s 3.42 percent in 2016.

Comment Are there still people who think ‘west good, Russia bad.’ North Americans should be concerned by Deep State cover ups and military waste than Russia’s targeted spending. This is about the west’s worried wealthy’.

Brexit protocol: Boris Johnson warned full implementation would mean ‘chaos on streets’ – September 12th 2021

Loyalist activist Jamie Bryson has warned the ongoing row over the Northern Ireland protocol poses a “serious threat to peace and security” in Northern Ireland. He has argued that the Brexit deal as currently agreed between the UK and EU amounts to the “colonisation” of Northern Ireland into an “economic union.” It comes amid much anger from the Loyalist and Unionist community at what they see as the altered constitutional status of Northern Ireland within the United Kingdom.

When I was a young student , the Northern Irish question seemed simply answered by persuading the two sides that religion should no longer be relevant. I have a lot of experience now.

So I realise riding rough shod over Northern Irish identity has similarities with what two British police forces are doing to me by deciding I am nuts and ridiculing and blocking my female gender identity.

The current Northern Irish flare up illuminates the idiocy of our ruling classes by allowing a Brexit referendum and the stupidity of the masses in believing a yes vote would solve the migrant issue and ‘get our country back.’

Most of us older people – Trump is an exception – do not use Twitter and Twitter should not decide anything in a so called democracy. The majority who voted against Barmy Brexit voted to stop the migrant chaos.

The illegals should be stopped in Europe , but Europe is overwhelmed and Britain’s liberals and elite have been sending out welcome signals. They have used and abused Europe creating an unsustainable situation.

They have also destabilised the Islamic world and would attack Afghanistan and Iran if they could. Yesterday’s 9/11 remembrance misses the points raised by the likes of Michael Moore concerning the mystery of how and why the tragedy happened and how steel girders melted from an aviation fuel fire.

To those who wonder about the little pictures of me at the end of some stories, it is to emphasise who I am and to stand up to the hate criminals who have and still are making my life hell. I don’t believe that transsexuals should hide in the LGBTQI group, They should be and assert themselves as individuals and make a personal stand about their identity – and most certainly not take anti psychotic drugs as the GIC have tried to make me do. I expect this site to be closed down soon. Unfortunately , in this country, charity does not begin at home.

British monarchy could be gone in two generations, says novelist Mantel – September 11th 2021

‘Despite being responsible for law and order Priti Patel can’t obey rules herself’Famous actresses share their audition horror stories

LONDON (Reuters) – The British royals, who trace their history back more than 1,000 years, could be gone within two generations, writer Hilary Mantel said in an interview published on Saturday.

Read More British monarchy could be gone in two generations, says novelist Mantel (msn.com)


Two Generations is too long to wait. As author of many history books covering English history and a lecturer in British Political history, I recognise the role of kings , for all their brutality , cruelty, murder , sex outrages, hypocrisy and failings, in creating the kind of order we have now. But they have no worthwhile role these days beyond being museum pieces.

They are an expensive nonsense wheeled out for dubious government propaganda and confusion. They should go. Their history is not unblemished and Queen Victoria presided over the heyday of empire. If the statues must go , so should the monarchy. World War One was a mass murderous deluded squabble between three in bred greedy monarchies that gave us World War Two and the horrors of today.

The monarchy is an absurd smokescreen obscuring truth and any hope of equality ,social and economic progress. In short , it is pretentious bullshit. Prince Andrew’s dilemma says it all about these irrelevant parasites. Britain needs cutting down to size before it does any more harm.

Daniel Keane  

Armed police have arrested an Afghan special forces commando at a hotel in Manchester, according to reports.

The commando is said to have been in quarantine with his family after arriving on an evacuation flight from Kabul.

He was arrested in a pre-dawn raid on or around 31 August and is being held under immigration powers, according to multiple media reports. An investigation is said to be underway and the individual is believed to still be in detention.

It comes as reports suggested the UK could re-enter lockdown in October to curb hospitalisations.

Oxford Covid jab faces to be withdrawn from Britain’s vaccine rollout – September 11th 2021

Eleanor Hayward Health Correspondent For The Daily Mail

he Oxford jab could be largely withdrawn from UK’s vaccine programme as millions of Britons who were given two doses are likely to be offered a Pfizer booster shot.

The booster programme is expected to rely mainly on the Pfizer vaccine under a ‘mix and match’ strategy to top-up immunity.

Research has suggested combining the two different vaccines can provide better and longer lasting protection against Covid-19.

Nearly half of all NHS staff have no medical qualifications

Ex-police officer jailed for assaults on two people while on duty

Almost half of all NHS staff are managers, administrators or unqualified assistants, it has emerged, as Boris Johnson came under pressure to insist on health service reforms as the price of increased funding.

The proportion of clinical staff who are professionally trained has declined from 55.5 per cent in 2013 to just 52.5 per cent now, meaning 47.5 per cent of staff have no medical qualifications.

Separately, it has emerged that the number of NHS managers paid more than the Prime Minister is about to rise to more than 400. Some hospitals have as many as nine managers earning more than Mr Johnson’s £157,000.

MPs said the figures showed that with £36 billion extra going to the NHS and social care, funded by a 1.25 percentage point increase in National Insurance, it was time to have a root and branch review of NHS spending.

During my first year as an undergraduate when Universities still deserved the name, I was compelled to study five subjects for examination in my first year. These subjects included philosophy. Moral philosophy was part of this course.

Given the society my privileged greedy hypocritical student contemporaries went on to create, it all seems to have been rather pointless. I went in to public service for security , a mortgage and to do good. Nowadays public servants expect inflation busting pay rises with an easy life.

Corruption is rife , as we see with the jailing of yet another corrupt U.K police officer for faking and signing witness statements. It seems O.K to assume every man accused of rape as being guilty, along with the prejudice that for everyone caught thousands go free.

But we are not allowed to argue that for every PC Wayne Couzens caught there are thousands of bent police officers up to all sorts of corruption and criminality. Like the NHS who just must be clapped , the police must be seen as heroes.

It is not good enough. Teaching was difficult and stressful but I was privileged and grateful for the work, senior staff left a lot to be desired and had stupid ideas, but at least they had done the job. What we have with the NHS is the tail wagging the dog. As with being a well turned out woman, foundations are everything or the whole thing eventually collapses. Expensive clothes are wasted otherwise. Seeing what is on underneath should be enlightening but not shocking.

Roberta Jane Cook says the right foundations are crucial to our appearance.

This is a tragedy and much to do with terrible Capital infrastructure. I was a cyclist in London during the late 1970s , riding as fast as possible oblivious of my vulnerability. The worst thing that happened was when I was riding in rain, from Goldsmiths College, where I was a post grad, to my home in Stockwell. I hit the back of a taxi when it suddenly stopped without signalling , to turn right. I ended up in the gutter and the taxi drove on.

London is worse now. Until lockdown I was a truck driver, regularly crossing London via Westway, delivering in Charlotte Street near Tottenham Court Road, then on to Covent Garden to collect and out to Brighton. Very tricky and cyclists , like my younger self , oblivious of danger and almost ubiquitous. Coming down on to the Marylebone Road from the flyover , the traffic was heavy by 6 a.m. The motorbike and scooter riders equally hazardous , weaving in and out. That is the reality of London , a city my parents and sister were born in and where I once lived, north and south. It has changed so much and is one of the most testing places on earth for drivers. Truck drivers are not perfect and need to be treated with consideration.

I was living in London when they went on strike in the late 1970s. Too many people see them as a nuisance and an obstacle rather than what delivers the goods. It is time cyclists had professional training , high vis vests with registration numbers and paid to use the road , especially in big cities. There are some terribly dangerous junctions and an international population. Their attitude to the road needs some common basis and training. Improving roads is not enough. It is also a fact that London cyclists have killed or injured pedestrians. Action to regulate cycling is way overdue. R J Cook

I have direct and ongoing experience of Thames Valley and West Mercia Police, who have a very big axe to grind with me, interfering in my health care – via my appalling GP- very seriously indeed- see Toxic Transgender Clinic and Trans Action pages.

They still won’t tell me why I was given a secret PNC Criminal Marker on my car and soft intelligence records on October 9th 2008. I found out , in 2012 that I had allegedly stalked , threatening violence, a well respected senior officer over the weekend of October 4th/5th 2008.

I was hundreds of miles away from Shropshire , north of Liverpool at the time and could prove it. But if the police don’t like the evidence they will ignore and even destroy it. The police even made a press release with malicious lies about domestic violence which they also don’t want to talk about.

They still won’t tell me why because it is malicious and life wrecking act, seriously affecting my hard working and honourable son’s life chances too. But ‘nice’ sanctimonious people in Norden House Surgery and the Gender Identity clinic, dote on the police. So they reported all to the Gender Identity Clinic who stopped my medication and gender reassignment surgery because I won’t take antipsychotics.

The British police are not recruited for their sensitivity. Many are bullies and accomplished liars. T hat fits well with the job. At best, they are what the sociologist R K Merton called ‘perspectivist thinkers’. Their new methods of evidence gathering include framing people by profiling, bugging phones and watching the cameras. They are also interested in what your neighbours might think and hacking your computer.

They are recruited to look after very powerful vested interests. So it is a nightmare to think that they are called upon and trusted to make judgements about peoples’ mental health. They cause more mental health issues through harassment , fabricating and withholding evidence to get innocent people jailed. The frightened comfortable members of the public are reassured, which is why Sarah Everard got into killer PC Wayne Couzens’ car. He already had four complaints of sexual misconduct against him. These were ignored.

The BLM claiming to be their only victims is obscuring a dangerous and developing police mentality with some very serious issues attached.

PC Benjamin Monk , of notoriously corrupt West Mercia Police, was protected for nearly 5 years from the consequence of brutally killing a black Premier League footballer – in spite of a record of abusing the taser with four other suspects which West Mercia Police ignored.

West Mercia’s Deputy Chief Constable also rewrote a report clearing three officers of perjury and misconduct in the Plebgate affair. Add to that them jailing an Irish man for forcing a young clubber to masturbate him, when he was of the wrong ethnicity, not there and with no forensic evidence. The Irish man got 17 years and received no compensation, because he couldn’t prove he hadn’t done it,

Senior officers have too many privileges and too much public trust. There are lots more cases on this site’s police station pages , with links, and archive. Yesterday , a female officer was filmed kicking a downed suspect. One must ask who are the paranoid schizophrenics here ? She told the person filming the viral video , to get lost, in rather coarse terms.

BBC Admits Documentary on Syria Chemical Attack Contained ‘False Claims’ – September 7th 2021

UK’s propaganda outlet BBC has admitted that a Radio 4 documentary about an alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma, Syria, in 2018 contained serious inaccuracies.

On Sunday, the UK corporation’s Executive Complaints Unit (ECU) upheld a protest by Daily Mail columnist Peter Kitchens following the broadcast on the program Mayday: The Canister On The Bed last November.

The judges agreed that BBC investigative journalist Chloe Hadjimatheou’s show failed to meet the “corporation’s editorial standards for accuracy” by reporting false claims.

Read More BBC Admits Documentary on Syria Chemical Attack Contained ‘False Claims’ – Orinoco Tribune – News and opinion pieces about Venezuela and beyond


These were not just inaccuracies. The whole story was a pack of lies. The BBC was originally the Ministry of Information and the model for Orwell’s ‘Big Brother.’ They wanted a full blown regime change in Syria because they feared Russia would get its hands on the oil. All the innocent dead from that Anglo American motivated carnage didn’t matter. The BBC smeared Peter Hitchens as a Russian agent.

They also lied that Wikileaks were paid £100,000 by Russia to deny the BBC’s lies. Britain’s elite still think they are born to rule the world but do not understand cotemporary Islam. Their mindset is back in 1919 when they set about sealing the Arab world’s fate – possibly involved in killing T E Lawrence of Araba for being such a post war nuisance.

Orwell – real name Eric Blair – had seen the British Empire at work first hand , as well as fighting in the Spanish Civil War, and could not stomach working for the elite’s BBC. Unfit to have his life wasted in the services, he fought for truth using his typewriter.

His dire warnings were never meant to be instruction manuals , as they now seem to be.

Britain’s elite ruled and controlled the Islamic world for years. They now follow curious lines of invading them while hanging on U.S shirt tails and inviting them all to Britain if they want to come. Hence all the angst about needing to make the Channel crossings safer for them.

Why not just follow the logic of collecting them all from their home ports, bring all who want to come ? Those left behind will make up the shortage in nearly no time and wages in the U.K should plummet along with rising property prices, taxes and so much else to benefit the elite and immiserate the masses. As mono culturalists , these migrants will eventually sort the country out as the Taliban are doing in Afghanistan.

Energy insiders are concerned after two coal facilities have been taken off standby and Britain looks ahead to a cold, costly winter.

The amount of electricity coming from wind farms has dropped considerably due to calm weather and there has been a global shortage of natural gas. 

National Grid ESO asked EDF to switch on two coal-fired units at its West Burton A station on Monday morning to help meet demand, according to The Telegraph.

That is the huge warning in a new report from TheCityUK, which is the Square Mile’s most influential lobbying body.

But TheCityUK has warned UK capital has fallen relative to some of its biggest rivals around the world such as New York and Hong Kong over the past decade. The country’s local share of markets such as cross-border bank lending, insurance premium-writing, pension and hedge fund assets have all fallen, the report warned.

Comment It is ludicrous but inevitable given the vested interest and media induced sheep like mindset of the British masses. This virus cannot be defeated by lockdowns or jabs.

It is not a mass killer of healthy people but the British NHS , like so many other health care systems , is totally inadequate by negative virtue of its structure, along with massive demands from an unfit ageing and ever expanding BAME population where lifestyle and densely urban communities are a major issue.

The cowardice and dishonesty of a leadership that simply wants to be seen to do ‘the right thing’ is appalling and will continue to inflict and retard our socio economic structure.

Read More The risk factor that makes you ‘twice as likely’ to get Covid post-jab – and it’s not age (msn.com)


Britain is the most densely populated country in the world. Most of its people live on 10% of the land. The rich all powerful elite have free run of the rest in a very advanced police state serving their interests.

So they are well in with the conspiracy to force mass vaccination. I have never had flu and stopped getting colds when I became a teacher in 1979. In that job I was exposed and caught most things that I had not already had as a child. My father did not approve of vaccinations. He was a free thinker, having seen mass hunger and poverty growing up in the 1930s, and military incompetence as a regular soldier wounded at Dunkirk.. The equally incompetent NHS killed him when he was 40, and killed my mother – also doing me great harm. All the staff seem to care about , like the police , is more money for their role with the Covid lockdown con.

Being breast fed in the pre feminist age, I had a strong immune system , but the jabs made me feel very ill. Now we know, in spite of all the tame media folk brought out – the latest being Sacha Baron Cohen who wants more state control of social media – to endorse it, the jabs are actually bad for us.

The people who die are already vulnerable and the NHS needs protecting because it is an appalling organisation which cannot cope with scrutiny, cost benefit analysis, rising migrant and old age demands. Of the latter elderly care crisis, we have much to thank Thatcher’s greedy privatisation of local authority old folks care homes in the 1980s.

Apocalyptic Britain by R J Cook – September 5th 2021

The following thread of images and words in today’s About Britain posts create an interesting picture when you join up the dots. But first a quote from ‘liberal’ Andrew Rawnlsey from today’s Guradian. He is arguing that Britain wants to go on with its never ending regime change wars ( regime change everywhere but Britain ) then we must join forces with Europe. This is because the U.S.A can no longer be relied on to back up the British elite’s refusal to let go of its old Empire , whatever it might say as atonement for slavery.

Here is the quote : After the rout, the recriminations. British fingers furiously jab at the Americans for a shaming scuttle from Kabul that will embolden the west’s adversaries. Sir John Major yesterday called the withdrawal of western forces a “strategically very stupid” decision. Tony Blair, the prime minister who sent British forces into Afghanistan 20 years ago, goes so far as to call the precipitous exit “imbecilic”

Blair is the man who used lies to encourage George Bush Junior into the Iraq war which has had terrible consequences – of which Britain’s complicity in jailing Julian Assange for warning of the idiocy of going into Afghanistan and exposing Anglo U.S war crimes in Iraq, is but a part.

The only things I remember John Major for are an affair with sexy Janet Reiger luxury lingerie wearer married MP Edwina Currie, Black Friday currency and stock market crisis with Norman Lamont’s help and the destructive rail privatisation.

These men did enough damage as Prime Ministers , so it is alarming that so called liberal left media republish their appalling views and utter incompetence as wisdom for the rest of us to follow.

The sequence below begins with the puffed up self righteous British leadership , backed by comfortable and or ignorant voters displaying a view that Afghanistan’s current situation is anyone’s business other than the Taliban and the U.S.A.

The Private Eye cover image encapsulates their bloated pomposity. In this far from just democracy where there are 600.000 homeless and so many socio economic evils, these characters – like their opposition are desperate to jump on the virtue signalling bandwagon ,. They are keen not to mention the two recent Islamic terror attacks in New Zealand and Berlin.

The sequence goes on to display British tabloid front pages from yesterday, covering the police state’s insistence of forcing dubious Pfeizer jabs on young people. The government also plan to make Covid passports compulsory for mass events.

Next we have the latest recruit to so called anti anxiety drugs, Jeremy Kyle. This ex car salesman man, who got TV lucky, made his name and a fortune bear baiting so many hapless hopeless Chav white working class men , for being so beastly to their partners, children or both , on live TV, that one of them killed himself. Mercifully this led to his garbage show being axed.

Then , shock horror , we have the leak of all leaks. The Queen is actually expected to die and her lavish funeral arrangments have been leaked to the press. With everything else going on , how will we Brits across the Commonwealth, survive ? It is terrible news coming so close to the revelation that a BBC journalist triggered a chain of events that killed our beloved Northamptonshire aristocrat, Princess ( formerly Lady |) Diana.

Can this country get any worse ? Of course it can. It is already in the pits for the poorly educated masses who are now so dependent on government diktats because they are not encouraged to think for themselves. They even need police approval to protest.

Never mind. All will be well. The tried and trusted ‘New Scientist’ magazine’s latest edition informs us that we must stop blaming secret mad state sponsored scientists for the devilish Covid 19 virus. We must go back to blaming another specie link – the old chestnut that a virus just jumped , mutated spontaneously into something new and began to kill.

The magazine’s top story is that all will be well when we are fully carbon neutral. Not a word about deforestation cutting oxygen and rainfall among other things to facilitate religion driven overpopulation along with demand for more living space. Only 2 % of Afghanistan survives as forest. No mention that humans and their cattle emit a lot of greenhouse gas. Don’t argue or doubt. The esteemed publication is written by scientists. ( sic ).

Meanwhile , on a more fundamental level, I had a bad week riding the buses. I missed an Arriva X60 on Tuesday, having waited half an hour for it before being told it had left 10 minutes earlier from a different bay to the one advertised. So I waited an hour and twenty minutes in a grim filthy diesel fume filled bus station for the next one. I would have missed that too if a fellow passenger hadn’t called to me that he had seen it about to leave from yet another wrong bay.

Then yesterday I waited one hour and a half at Buckingham Tesco stop for my return to Winslow , when the sign switched from the bus being due in one minute to disappearing from the board and never arriving. Luckily a neighbour passed in her car and gave us a lift with all our shopping.

I had arrived in Buckingham that day , from Stony Stratford , an historic old North Bucks town , now swallowed up by Milton Keynes. The historic part is now a trendy middle class suburb with lots of charity shops and some ancient pubs. But you don’t have to go far south along the old A5 Watling Street , joining the new by pass and you will see some interesting ‘quick build’ high density mass housing curiously called the Crofts. Developers and planners , along with self important councillors, love invoking the area’s historical attributes , including tales from the Cock and the Bull inns where middle class folk singers and players join in promoting an illusory past. Richard III apparently stayed over in the town, with the captive two princes he later had murdered to secure his throne. There is Queen Eleanor Way nearby , named after Edward ‘Long Shanks’s ‘ wife. Her body was carried through the town en route to London. She gave Edward 22 children.

It was undertaker faced Tory Minister Norman Tebbit who told the 1980s rising unemployed to do as his dad did in the hungry `1930s, ‘Get on your bike.’ This bike shop in Wolverton Road is the only one for miles around in North Bucks. It has some very expensive stuff.

A good bike will cost around £1000. I was asked for £9 just for tape to wind around my drop handle bars. My old Raleigh Lenton Sports was built by low white working class slaves in Nottingham and cost my dad £20 in the 1950s. The Raleigh factory , made famous in the 1960s film ‘Saturday Night & Sunday Morning’, is no more. The bikes are made by Third World slaves now, in the Far East.

There is no place for that sort of novel on school English literature courses now. The British working class culture must be buried , along with increasing numbers of young suicides, in this New World Order of censorship and rewrites. R J Cook

Sky News reader perfectly sums up post-Brexit Britain in ‘most apocalyptic terms’ – September 5th 2021

Sky News presenter Ian King has summed up the current state of post-Brexit Britain in what he called the “most apocalyptic terms”.

While reporting on the food and drink shortages in supermarkets and pubs on Friday, King summarised the situation in a brilliant 17-second clip that has since gone viral.

“When expressed in the most apocalyptic terms, England has become a country where the pubs have no beer, farmers don’t have anyone to pick their fruit and even if they did there aren’t enough lorry drivers to get it to the shops,” he said.

The newly identified variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus first emerged in South Africa last May as a potential variant of interest (VOIC). C.1.2 has been described as the “most mutated so far” with changes to genetic code that could make it more transmissible and potentially more dangerous. Even more worryingly, the coronavirus has already been identified in a handful of countries outside of Africa, including the UK.

Comment There is a conspiracy to end all conspiracies through ridicule, ostracism and ultimately more law. The Covid Crisis is becoming absurd. Death rates from Covid 19 by itself are much rarer than road deaths, but we don’t ban cars because the socio economic system would not work without them. Same goes for ludicrous lockdown.

Meanwhile we continue with virtue signalling mass immigration ( costs falling on the lower orders ), air travel and an open door to disgruntled and opportunistic people from Afghanistan because the virtue signallers say so , rather than accepting that there is a problem with Islam.

Academics recognised years ago that bigoted religion had to go before humans could fulfil potential. Now we are setting the clocks back. ‘Go forth and multiply’ may have made sense for specie survival in biblical times , but not now because over population is the root of humanity’s and the planet’s eco problem.

Britain’s elite and virtue signallers are dumping on the indigenous masses. They are saying ‘aren’t we nice’ as they come between the warring factions of Islam , both of whom believe that they are custodians of the ultimate truth and meaning of life.

The idea that the planet, everything on it and the universe was made by a God without permissible image or definition is logically utterly absurd.

However , our elite and intellectually lightweight lefties have forced laws to ban comment or criticism. The Covid Crisis is grist to the mill. Meanwhile , the NHS collapses under the weight of over promoted arrogant managers and impossible ever increasing surging popular demand.

Gareth Southgate condemns ‘unacceptable’ racist abuse of England players – September 3rd 2021

Gareth Southgate insists supporters who jeer the taking of the knee and aim racist abuse at players will be regarded as “dinosaurs” after his England side were once again subjected to monkey chants.

Raheem Sterling and Jude Bellingham were the reported targets of a number of Hungary supporters inside the Puskas Arena as England turned in a fine performance to win their World Cup qualifier 4-0.

Read More Gareth Southgate condemns ‘unacceptable’ racist abuse of England players (msn.com)

Comment Yesterday I posted a story about Oxford University’s Vice Chancellor, Prof Louise Richardson , who said campuses must be places in which “open debate on controversial topics” can flourish.

That is a laudable statement, however quite hopeless in Britain. I said at the time of the Brexit referendum that this country’s elite would become more dictatorial and that mass immigration would rise massively if the vote was to leave. I have been proven right. Britain’s ruling class – better called the predator class- have one moral code for themselves which is called hypocrisy. They have another for the masses which is blind obedience to the rules or face ostracism , despair, humiliation and destruction.

Gareth Southgate reminds me of a 1960s progressive vicar and fits well with modern Britain. Football is assumed to be our religion , unless we have taken a step up to join Islam – which is a religion not a race whatever dopey schoolteachers might be telling the kids, as they did during my 18 years as a teacher.

West Mercia Police’s appalling senior management team spent nearly five years protecting their PC Benjamin Monk who had killed an obviously unwell former Premier League black footballer. When it eventually came out, the tame press and BBC- who hardly touched the story- never mentioned or attributed this to racism. Monk had a record for abusive use of the taser on at least 4 other occasions , but that did not worry West Mercia Police top brass whose only concern was their sanctified image. That is Britain.

Meanwhile, that same media had been feeding of the George Floyd killing in the United States, were telling all of us whites that our ancestors were all slave traders or slave owners and we must atone by bending the knee.

The reality of British history and life for the average white British Person is rather different. But that history is being re written. We must accept white guilt and bend the knee. Righteous Gary Southgate is in the vanguard of the new morality which suits the elite agenda who pay him and his players rather a lot of money.

The mystery for me , is why to white working class people bother to support British football. Southgate’s assumption is that anybody who doesn’t accept his and his paymaster’s damning judgements that will be seen and written off as dinosaurs. You don’t need a good education or high intelligence to be good at football. I spent three years as a PE teacher and know what it takes. I know footballs were a lot heavier in my day. Now it s just a show. Southgate is using football , blatantly in the Euro Cup, to the New World Order cause.

The acid test here, for Southgate’s dinosaur cliché and the future , is how are East Europeans taking the new EU and British moralising dictatorship ? Hungary , for one , doesn’t like it. As someone who spent years working with East Europeans and not ‘playing’ football , I think I have a better idea of what is going on – and why. As for Prof Richardson, I am afraid academics dare not tackle controversial subjects with an open mind – unless they want the Southgate treatment. R J Cook

Tax rise for 25 million to pay for social care

Boris Johnson is next week expected to announce a manifesto-breaking tax hike to pay for the biggest overhaul in social care in a generation and bring down NHS waiting lists.Boris Johnson wearing a suit and tie: Boris Johnson, Downing Street - Daniel Leal-Olivas/Pool via Reuters© Daniel Leal-Olivas/Pool via Reuters Boris Johnson, Downing Street – Daniel Leal-Olivas/Pool via Reuters

In a major political gamble, the Prime Minister will reveal a rise in National Insurance that will see around 25 million people pay extra tax.

In return, he will promise to cap the amount an individual will ever pay in social care costs – possibly at between £60,000 and £80,000 – and better protect people from having to sell their homes to meet care bills.

Read more Tax rise for 25 million to pay for social care (msn.com)

Comment People don’t realise that things like open door immigration and lockdowns are very expensive. The rich elite won’t be paying. Social care is mainly privatised , making vast profit from very poor provision.

When I worked – in Portsmouth where life was and still is grim for the masses- for HM Inspector of Taxes in the early 1970s, the marginal rate of tax was over 80% and basic rate was 30%. I left to work for a London accountant helping rich people to avoid tax.

Tax avoidance is even more sophisticated nowadays in the global economy. Meanwhile the little people pay, the rich play and the Whitehall set blind us with the science of economics. As a famous man once said : ‘If governments want you to know something you can be pretty sure it is a lie..’ R J Cook

The basics don’t Change, the elite just get more sophisticated with their lies and manipulations.

Prof Louise Richardson said campuses must be places in which “open debate on controversial topics” can flourish.

She said that if universities are unable to foster an atmosphere in which discussion can take place freely, they risk “losing the public argument” over whether they are out of touch with society.

Speaking at Times Higher Education’s World Academic Summit, Prof Richardson said the perception among some people that universities are “bastions of snowflakes” was damaging for the sector.

The French resistance will prevail winter oak

by Paul Cudenec

Posted here September 2nd 2021 – F.S

It has been eight years now since I left England to come and live in France.

A lot has happened back in the UK since then (not least the whole Brexit pantomime), but the period has been a dramatic one here as well, as I will set out.

Moreover, with hindsight, what often felt at the time like a disorientating jumble of events now appears to me as one clearly-visible phenomenon, namely a vast wave of growing popular resistance to the dominant system which those in power have been trying to crush by all possible means.

Now, in 2021, this struggle is coming to what could well be its final stage, a make-or-break moment which will decide not just the future of France but also play a decisive role in determining which direction humankind as a whole will take in the decades to come.

Scottish Singer, Aged 22, Wants Over-40s To Be Banned From Nightclubs – September 1st 2021

Michael Gove has made headlines once again, but not over Brexit claims or PPE contracts. This time the cabinet minister was spotted raving in an Aberdeen nightclub at 2am over the Bank Holiday weekend. Wearing a suit, no less.

The clip, which shows Gove alone on the dance floor – arms aloft, flailing wildly, out of time with the music – sparked a social media frenzy that culminated in a debate on Good Morning Britainshould over-40s be banned from nightclubs?

Speaking to show hosts Sean Fletcher and Charlotte Hawkins, 22-year-old Scottish singer Tallia Storm said that older people should leave club nights to “us youngsters”.

Read More Scottish Singer, Aged 22, Wants Over-40s To Be Banned From Nightclubs (msn.com)

Comment I haven’t been in a night club since 2007, after watching Welshman Jo Calzgahe defeat a Dane for the super middle weight title. On account of Welsh ancestry on my father’s side. I supported Joe but had great fun drinking before hand with the Vikings.

So after leaving the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, it was off to a club and a lot more drinking and dancing with some girls at their invitation, the Welsh flag draped around me like a cape, my long blonde hair flying. I was 57. I was a brilliant dancer along with my new student girls friends.

So I think this Scots singe rather dull. But if that is how she feels, we should be thinking of places where young women should not be allowed, for the safety of older clientele who might be accused on inappropriate behaviour. There is a certain breed of young female seeing sexual threats everywhere. New laws and controls are forever being wrought as the police state tightens its grip. Young women love them. R J Cook

Comment Twice I ended up facing a low bridge with traffic behind me. The first was under the railway in Didcot , following my car sat nav. It is silly to try forcing your way through even if it is embarrassing and can anger motorists behind you.

I recall a tricky one going to the back of Bath station. while delivering to GBK. A Bidvest driver hit it with a 7.5 tonner. That stopped the trains. The problem was the road was slightly inclined before the turn right into the station car park so there was very slight clearance. You could just about do it in a small 11.5 feet tall truck as I did until a height restriction notice was put in place. R J Cook

Bureaucratic rigidity threatens to condemn this country, and the EU itself, to a wholly needless crisis over trade between the UK and the Brussels-ruled bloc.


It is ironic that the majority voted leave to stop mass immigration and multi culture. Now immigration is at record levels , albeit non European, which is how certain parties in power wanted it to be.
