Rape Truth and Lies Posted December 18th 2019
“The number of people prosecuted for rape in England and Wales has slumped to an all-time low, despite record volumes of cases being reported to police, new figures show.
The annual Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) report from the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) shows there were just 1,925 convictions for rape during the financial year 2018-19, down from 2,635 in the previous 12 months – a drop of 26.9%.
This is despite the number of rape claims dealt with annually by police in England and Wales rising from 35,847 to 57,882 during the last four years. It means around 3.3% of all reported rapes end in a conviction.
When records were first compiled in its current format – in 2007/8 – 2,201 rape cases resulted in a conviction, according to the BBC.
The latest figures have dropped below the lowest figure for any year since those records were compiled, the broadcaster reported.
Director of Public Prosecutions Max Hill has announced independent CPS watchdog – Her Majesty’s Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate (HMCPSI) – will hold a review of rape charging decisions to increase accountability and reassure victims of sexual offences.”
Many years ago there was a blase attitude to rape. The definition was simple, forced sexual intercourse on the part of the male. The ‘News of the World’revelled in reporting these crimes in gory detail, naming the victims.
Invariably they were‘night out’ drunken street crimes. Women were always asked what they were wearing. Reports were so salacious the newspaper earned the name ‘The News of the Screws’
In the 1980s,’Thames Valley Police’ jumped at the chance of some free publicity as subject of a Thames Television documentary which was meant to showcase their ‘Starsky and Hutch’ fantasy image.
The plan backfired, with the force being shown as a Neanderthal led and operated inefficient body of morons, led by an over promoted idiot. The macho canteen culture was rife and ridiculous.
Thames Valley Police became notorious for its very bad attitude to rape victims. In this connection a working class young prostitute alleged rape. In front of TV cameras and several male officers, she was asked by a youngish Scots CID officer whether the man came inside her. Forensic evidence was then vital, but should have been confined to a medical report, not exposed by a police pervert.
There was a backlash. Superficial reforms were made. Interviews with victims and suspects would now be recorded- as I know from experience, this does not stop the police from judicious and scandalous editing to support their narrow minded prejudices.
So we have the situation today. It is much complicated by the Tony Blair Government of lawyers pandering to the female vote, broadening the definition of rape to any form of unwanted sexual contact- including words and touching. Added to this, there is no Statute of Limitations, which means an alleged victim can come forward as many years after as she likes.Because she is a woman, there can be no issue or suspicion of malice aforethought.
A few years ago, a man completed 17 years in prison for a rape- actually making a girl masturbate him on a dark city alleyway. West Mercia Police are notorious for withholding and faking evidence- I am one of their victims. The forensic evidence proved the man innocent so the police withheld it because the man was poorly educated Scots working class. When he was finally released, old, jobless and tainted, they gave him £47, telling him it was up to him to prove his innocence. Among other cases of West Mercia corruption, they lied to jail a young man of below average intelligence for the famous graveyard murder in Kidderminster, in the 1970s.
Men need to take note, the feminists want all those alleged to have committed rape to be named, shamed and assumed guilty until the court convicts them. This is no longer a matter of street crime. Wives and girlfriends can come forward whenever they like, so take care with what feminists call your ‘toxic masculinity’ Get a contract, witnesses, and possibly video camera set up before agreeing to sex. Trouble is, sex doesn’t even need to happen because a woman’s tears say more than real evidence ever could.
Officially women never lie. The CPS will be very brave, risking high paid careers if they argue with that premise. Drink is no excuse for a man, but it is for a woman. Men have even faced prosecution for brushing past women in public spaced. Of course it’s not so dangerous if you are rich and powerful, as the Epstein affair denotes. But most of us are not. So much for equality. Sensible women should at least fear for their sons, assuming they love them more than they love themselves. Robert Cook
Cliches R’ Us Posted December 17th 2019
Cliches R’ Us December 17th 2019
Here in England it is another cold damp morning. It is 5.30. Soon I will be out on the road- rather a late start for me. I finished work at 6 pm- 1800- yesterday. British roads are not the best in the Western World and driver good manners are not favoured by the crowded conditions. Luckily I only have to go to Watford and back, but the journey will have its challenges, particularly in this weather.
No doubt Prime Minister Boris Johnson is also awake in the cloistered surroundings of Downing St. Like Westminster, his new home is built on soggy ground and much the worse for wear.
Downing Street used to be a favourite spot for tourists to have their photos taken. Unfortunately, by the time the Tories had taken over in 1979, they were so hated that the IRA launched a rocket attack on the famous house. When politicians are frightened they move with great speed to protect themselves, no expenses spared -because we depend on them ( sic ). So a barrier, made famous by Plebgate- was built.
When I had a robbery, losing £2,500 of tools and equipment, the police sent two civilian PCSOs around four hours after I called them. They had been told by command and control that they could do nothing to investigate. It was probably gypsies and there were a lot in the area.
There is a lot wrong with this country, and it is not just the roads. I know about roads. I used to help build and repair them many years ago. It is a straight forward process. Politics is different. It favours devious and naturally dishonest people. When I was selected as a potential parliamentary candidate back in the 1990s, I realised I had none of these qualities. I was sent details of courses on how to smarm to the voters.
One wonders how Boris Johnson will fair and face up to the challenge. Britain has its’ swamp full of vested interests, with a class system second to one. Already Boris and his new government PR machine are firing out the cliches like ‘we need more nurses and police officers.’ There is no mention of reforming our institutionally corrupt self centred wasteful police or training more native nurses. Cliches are cheaper than bullets. Politicians love cliches, they have been getting them into power and keeping them there for years. Robert Cook
The Present is The Past Posted December 15th 2019
Back in the 1970s
In the course of my work as a commercial driver, I visited Boris Johnson’s dreary Parliamentary constituency of Uxbridge last night . I also had to go to the equally bland and depressing London suburb of Finchley once represented by the Tory dictator Margaret Thatcher.
I am not writing as a Labour or Lib Dem supporter. They are all awful front organisations for international global big business – multi national global corporations with the primary function of generating obscene profit for already rich elite share holders. These people include members of the alleged down trodden ethnic and female blob. A rich black woman like Princess Meghan Markle has far more power than a working class white man- if not all of them put together.
In the last ten years Britain’s 1000 richest people have seen growth in their asset values of 180% each over the last ten years. While those of us at the bottom have seen massive falls in real income. The rich elite are able to avoid tax.
As a young man, working for HM Inspector of Taxes, it was written on my probationary report that I expressed my opinions so strongly I upset my colleagues. I said inflamatory things like ‘The tax system picks on and chases the little people. The rich get away with it.’
My overnight job this Saturday meant stocking restaurants, thus visiting high streets and back ends of outwardly posh shopping centres. Last night was so wet and windy that people were thin on the ground, back alleyways a little quieter than normal.
On the way in to these Home Counties havens, one passes lines of dream homes built back in the 1930s, along arterial roads like the North Circular. These were visionary in a 1920s and 30s when homeless traumatised ragged ex servicemen, sporting long hair and unkempt beards, were tramping with tattered old army back packs and Billy Cans, begging for food and water. They slept in farmers barns or fields. As a boy growing up in the truly austere 1950s, these tramps were back again. By the so called Swinging Sixties they all seemed to have disappeared.
Now in an age when governments keep telling us that we need more migrants from the Indian sub continent, Middle East and North Africa, even though we still have well over a million unemployed- many more in insecure sweatshop jobs- these outcast beggars and tramps are back again. We see the same outcomes across Europe. The mouthy ignorant students of our dumbed down universities don’t want any of this talked about.
They are the liberals and reserve the right to ‘no platform’ the ones they don’t like, ensuring mainstream politicians and media can go on lying, with more disgusting wars in the name of equality, diversity and that wonderful world of ‘modern liberal democracies’. These democracies must be protected by as many wars, bullets, deaths and bombs as it takes.
Gone are the old hippy days I recall at the University of East Anglia. It is my generation of elite pampered know all drug hazed anti war protesters students who have achieved this wonderful world.
They created all the lies of diversity, hate and confusion. Liberalism, diversity and LGBTQI are the new religions, more powerful and just as threatening as Radical Islam which is reacting against them.
They love the police so long as they don’t bother them. They must be obeyed, hence the anger, confusion and demonstrations they support from their commanding positions in a society they promised to change back in the 1970s. These people have made the present so much of the past.
Multi Vulture Posted December 14th 2019
Multi Vulture Posted December 14th 2019
Boris Johnson’s election victory has triggered the inevitable mass protests in London, Britain’s global city- where Boris once reigned as mayor. The protesters organised via social media, their placards professionally produced. Obviously all of this was planned in advance in case Boris won a landslide so feared by the liberal left.
There was much raucous shouting resounding across the damp London sky. Repeated chanting of fascist, racist and homophobe were obviously practised and in unison. The same nasty messages adorned the placards.
The message was that they did not accept the election result. The gathering and the marching involved a preponderance of women, faces twisted to express their moral outrage. Bearded men acted as outriders against the marauding police. A new generation of social science and English literature students were inevitably embedded in the stream, inevitably coached by sixth form and ‘uni’ tutors.
Comfortable mainstream media commentators are preoccupied with how on earth the voters could turn in such large numbers against Labour. Labour started encouraging a multi cultural society, wonderfully diverse, was supposed to encourage more ethnic minority newcomers who would loyally vote Labour. Over successive years, the Tories have been forced to pander to the Blair and Brown agenda. This agenda did nothing to renationalise state assets given away to big business, or rectify the horror of Brown taking up John Major’s vile private finance initiative.
Remaining or leaving Europe will not resolve any of the horrendous socio economic divisions in what is now necessarily police state Britain- otherwise it would fall apart very quickly.
It is important to take notice how many other European countries hate the EU, a police multi cultural state very much influenced by the surreptitious British power elite. Breeding a generation of brainwashed and poorly educated ‘uni’ students to give defence and credibility to multi culture will not resolve the problems of Britain’s divided and impoverished masses.
Austerity does not mean what it did when the concept was invented by Labour Chancellor Sir Stafford Cripps after World War Two. It means limited pay increases for our wasteful self important public services. It makes no reference as to how mass immigration has kept wages low or even cut them, while prices of necessities rising.
Meanwhile mainstream air wave media can’t accept what has happened or why. It may have a multi cultural faced array of reporters or anchors, but they are of one PC culture, upper middle class and feminist. They display contempt for ordinary bog standard educated- education may be too strong a word. Jeremy Corbyn should not be the scapegoat for the ludicrous nature and challenge of admitting the truth in this country. This is the land of multi vultures, not any kind of worthwhile culture. Robert Cook
Above it All Posted December 13th 2019
Above it all December 13th 2019
This the morning after the night before, but there is Abobe no morning after pill. British TV pundits are busy explaining away the biggest liberal cock up since Donald Trump won the presidency. New York born and young Trump lookalike Boris Johnson has kept his job as British PM.
The pundits have a lot of explanations and excuses for this terrible outcome. None of them involve looking at the simple minds and interests of the lower order British masses who live day by day, looking for simple pleasures and with many fears for the future. Mental illness, homelessness and suicides are at record levels. The largest group of homeless are white males, mostly punished and outcast by divorce.
Elite orchestrated gender warfare has gone on for so long, it is hard to see the old British extended or nuclear family functioning again. The crazy world of gender fluidity has replaced traditional role models, increasing numbers of children growing up without male role models on board. Masculinity is defined as toxic, manspreading and mansplaining are acceptable terms of abuse- keeping the average male in his place, gender confused and weak.
There is concern that young people did not get the liberal message or even bother to vote. One pundit expressed hope that when the voting age is lowered that schools will do their job, educating the new voters.
The outcome for the arrogant political and associated media elite has been the majority of Red Labour heartlands turning Tory blue. Ultimately it will not make any worthwhile improvement to the miseries, divisions and hopelssness of the many in a country still trading off its imperial and brutal history.
Just listening to the election results in Wales- where Tories got 14 seats- being read in Welsh and English says much about how stupid and broken British society has become. However, one thing hasn’t changed. The rich here are getting ever richer in a global economy of which Europe and its British contribution is a major part, at the expense of the majority.
The next act in this melodrama will be for Nicola Sturgeon to call for a second referendum as it welcomes more migrants from the old Third World to make up for years of depopulation, mainly into England. Politicians are by nature egotistical know alls who believe themselves above it all.
They won’t learn. If and when trouble breaks out on the streets, these cloistered pampered people will tell us we need more police officers with more draconian powers. Robert Cook
British General Erection Posted December 12th 2019
British General Erection December 12th 2019
I have called this piece the General Erection because whichever way it goes it will be a giant cock up. It is an election about multi culture, manipulated by the mainstream media and wide open to electoral fraud.
A majority voted for Brexit without a deal- not a matter of my choice, but fact. Going back on that exposes the sham democracy. We keep hearing that word in the media as part of the brainwashing.
A minority will choose the next Prime MInister. So long as it is not Boris, the elite and media will be happy- though Corbyn worries the on taxing the rich. The media and elite are looking short term to stop real Brexit.
Whatever, the whole scenario has exposed the mess that Britain is. Today’s tabloids give opposing views in banner headlines, opposing short biased copy. Veteran actress ( or actor if you like depriving the language of differentiation ) Maureen Lipman, a Jew dreads Labour because of its anti Semitism.
Mainstream media does not like to mention that the Jews Islamic enemies are part of Labour’s new underdog power base. Generally Muslims do not like Jews- a fact ‘multi culture’ cannot change. So whichever way this election goes, the outcome could spark unrest- with finacial and media elites dampening the economy, raising cots and unemployment for the masses. Charles Close
Lots of Parties on Election Day Posted December 12th 2019
Black Day December 12th 2019
The only time I listen to the BBC is while on the road. Radio 4 is the best offering. The rest is populist DJ and music drivel, pap for the mindless masses. There is classical music but that distracts me too much.
BBC Radio 4 can be irksome and usually predictable in its editing and bias. Last week a programme on the missing pages of history in Britain’s schools and colleges. Predictably the chatty ethnic presenter focused on the absence of black history.
We were then treated to a history of long suffering, especially women, black underdogs- rather than the black tyrants and those who collaborated in the slave trade and post imperial black dictatorships.
I had rather hoped the programme would look at the rise of monarchies, aristocracies, greed driven wars, corruption and class exploitation which still bedevils this country. However, the thinking and elite practice is quite obvious.
If the masses can be divided and ruled by the elite, through fostering resentment between class race and religion, then they won’t notice what you are doing to them. All the drivel about empowering women is about emasculating working men. All the drivel, led by Gareth Southgate, looking for racism in English football is the same process.
Very well paid comfortable Southgate virtue signals while his overpaid and useless politically correct team fails, thus fostering resentment and more racism among the fans who cannot see beyond football. They cannot spot the football that they are. Those fans do not know what they are doing or why. However, they are doing exactly what they are expected to do.
That brings me to the British elite’s favourite sport : Politics. This sums up the real game and is the expression of Britain’s mass ignorance by the lower orders. The posh expensively dressed made up TV and radio pundits love predicting and trying to influence what these sad sorry little people are thinking of doing.
For weeks leading up to the British General Election, the Opinion Polls have been flashing up warnings if anything dangerous, like intelligence appeared to be harming the process of prediction and control. The Brexit Party have been denied the oxygen of publicity because they are seen as dangerously racist.
If any of the elite forces spots signs of racism or deranged nationalism, they are on it, urging good people to turn out, isolate these viruses and tactically out vote them like anti bodies fighting disease.
The election result like everything else in this society, has to be predictable. Big business and investors really need this too. Predictability equals control and profit for the elite. Dissent or apathy must be exposed and condemned by the righteous ones. A bit of anti racist or pro Europe outrage orchestrated by the media, makes it look good, lively and exciting.
In the good old days, elections were simple. They were black and white, red and blue. It was workers versus the bosses. For all the conflict we were all British. Now it seems something of a muddle. But it isn’t really. I watched the BBC coverage of Corbyn et al speaking to Labour loyalists in cold grey Middlesborough yesterday. Two Labour blokes wearing the old reassuring ‘eh up me bonnie lad’ cloth caps were there on stage with Jeremy.
There was rumbusteous fighting talk about bringing good jobs back to the North East. It was a blast from the past, much colder than the cold blast from climate change bad weather all around them. The evil rich heartless Tories took the brunt of their rhetoric, as if two past Labour MPs Blair and Brown did only good. That was it, all about good and evil, very biblical and just too nice for satire or criticism because the real enemies are in plain sight (sic ).
It was fighting talk, with no mention that the EU bans the government from bailing out industries like the steel upon which Middlesborough once thrived. Never mind, just get the mass of little people behind the feminist, LGBTQI ( This movement will claim the whole alphabet soon ), anti racist, pro Greta, pro Islam, pro Jew, pro pro, pro Uncle Tom Cobbley and all movements and we are assured of an awful lot of parties and a very interesting time,
White Guilt & Toxic Masculinity Posted December 10th 2019
History is like evidence being given in British Courts. The powerful can rewrite it whenever they like, as need arises, to keep the masses down where they belong- all in the name of their dishonest democracy and bogus equality. Charles Close
Love and Peace Posted December 10th 2019
Love and Peace December 10th 2019
‘Ignorance is bliss, it is folly to be wise.’ That was one of my mother’s favourite phrases. After my father’s accident, lingering death and the poverty that went with it, I begged to differ. Not that I am saying my mother or father were ignorant, they just wanted their children to be safe. They were young people who had grown up in poverty, kept in ignorance and deference- they had also lived through the horrors of war.
Growing up in the 1950s, my comics and films on TV were bursting with stories and images of the British heroically fighting the evil Nazis. There was no back story about how the Nazis and World War Two came about. The officers in the old black and white films were always stiff upper lip natural leaders of the hapless lower orders, like my father, who were there canon fodder.
So I played soldiers with the boy next door, made Airfix model aeroplanes, collected toy army vehicles and soldiers. I joined the Air Training Corps ( cadet branch of the RAF ) where we learned to clean and use rifles, march, practice drill and fly. My ambition was to be a pilot and fight for good.
Then I went to the University of East Anglia, in the elitist days when only 3% of the population went to university. One could read widely. The teaching was provocative and good, Political correctness was in its infancy, but it was there, manifesting itself with unisex clothes, peace and love.
Of course that was a sham. On graduation day all of my mainly upper middle class contemporaries turned up with nice haircuts and hairstyles, the hippy clothes discarded. They had their careers planned, off to good jobs or a life in academia. Silly me went to work on a building site in Norwich. I hated their fake world, the world these people and their kids now run.
Back in my student days, protesting against the Vietnam War was the unifying virtue signalling of my pampered student generation of ‘know alls.’ Now these same people and their offspring buy into, and even promote, endless wars for oil and other resources in the Middle East and Latin America. The virtue signalling aspect is now, fighting for other countries to enjoy the sort of human rights. diversity and democracy that we have in the west ( sic ). It doesn’t matter how many people get killed, bereaved or maimed in the process.
Of course that endless war has to extend to Ukraine because of all its resources and farm land, so here is another reason to blame and isolate Russia- the latest propoganda being to blame the Russian government for the sort of drug cheating that all countries do, now that there is so much money in international sport.
Wherever in the world, including Latin America, Anglo/U.S resource greed is threatened, Russia is there as the scapegoat. It has to be so. Back in the 1960s we were told that new technology would mean a life of wealth and ease for all people. Not so in fact. The rich funded and controlled the technological advances so crucial to globalisation and elite profiteering- and climate change. Never has the vaunted western concept of democracy been so bereft – yet so applauded by the comfortable classes it, and its police officers, protect.
They have given us diversity as a distraction and a nonsense to fight over- dividing all lower order men and women of all ethnicities The only diversity that should really matter to a person with a brain and honesty, is between rich and poor.
There are 8 people in the world who own more wealth than the bottom 3.8 billion put together. The masses don’t get it. The mainstream media makes sure they don’t get the back story. I got sacked by a newspaper because I upset the important readers, and advertising mattered more than anything else. Robert Cook
Stormy Weather Posted December 8th 2019
There has been no editorial or other posts since Friday, because of my birthday celebrations. My eldest son Kieran -a formidable historian who has worked on a lot of my projects, and is an asset to this site- and I combined business with pleasure, returning to Portsmouth to research a new book, and to have fun for three days. I am only just back, and must go truck driving at 2 am tomorrow, so bed oon.
We both love old Portsmouth and Portsea Island. It is the third most densely populated island in the British Isles with an incredible history. James 1st’s gay lover George Villiers, the first Duke of Buckingham, was murdered in hotel in Old Portsmouth High Street.
That is why we have Buckingham Palace- Royals have always been sex mad religious hypocrits- no nation does hypocrisy better than the British, especially the English. Villiers gifted the palace to King James
There are many books on the city and island, including two by me, and another co authored by me. But there is so much more to say.
Many fear that Brexit will overwhelm the port if trade shifts to the U.S.A -alarmist nonsense stirred up by the BBC. The BBC have been around all the southcoast ports with this fearmongering. If Brexit could really stir up all that U.S trade then it should happen quickly. Southampton and Bristol would also benefit massively.
But I am not an optimist. Portsmouth is a mixture of the down at heel old estates, big houses and luxury apartments. BMWs, boy racers, bicyclists and heavy drinkers, old pubs, new pub/restaurants, closed down shops and charity shops abound. Old blocks of flats are converted for students, new blocks are built for students.
Monuments abound along Southsea front, to old glories and epic defeats. Southsea in the 1960s was such an innocent place. By the time I arrived there in the 1970s, it was a case of what do we do with the drunken sailors on a Saturday night. I loved it, but now sailors dare not go out in uniform for fear of causing offence in a multi cultural city. Robert Cook
Top Marx Posted December 6th 2019
Being a leftie just isn’t the same any more. As I have explained previously- to those who did not know- the term left wing dates from post Napoleonic France when people opposed to the restored Bourbon monarchy sat on the left side of the French version of Parliament
The nineteenth century was the age of revolution, reaching an apogee in 1848, promoting Karl Marx to publish his ‘Communist Manifesto’. In this little book, Marx opened with the line ‘A spectre is haunting Europe, the spectre of Communism.’ He concluded with the line ‘Workers of the world unite, you have nothing to lose but your chains’.
During the late 1960s and early 70s, I ploughed through his works. I was a poor boy, growing up spending my pocket money on Dinky Toys and model railway stuff before switching to books and moving into my head.
Consciousness raising was a key aspect of what became known as Marxism. According to Marx it was false consciousness keeping the working classes of the nineteenth Industrial Revolution in their place.
This concept is a tricky one as it presupposes we can all switch to a sort of common wavelength via telepathy rather than a bond by fear, culture or oppression. Marx put his faith in the last element.
There has never been a Marxist revolution along the lines he predicted. The Russian Revolution was facilitated by a desperate Germany encircled in 1917 in a bloody war. The result was parodied by George Orwell in his book ‘Animal Farm’ where the oppressed pigs take over to oppress , exploit and sell the rest of the animals under a new dictator pig called ‘Napoleon.’
Humans are not by nature idealists, they are survivalists. We can see where idealism has gotten Julian Assange. We can see that the U.S so called leftie liberal Democrats have no plan for the U.S beyond beating Donald Trump and escalating their money making working class killing wars. We can see where Bradley Manning has ended up as an idealist.
So the latest protest and strike in France has nothing to do with idealism. It has to do with survivalism. Macron is reforming the pension system to fund tax cuts for the rich, force workers into longer hours and lower pensions.
For the protestors it is about survivalism. However, once there is a crowd of protestors confronted by robotic riot cops, something does happen to consciousness. It moves into and lives for the moment. Across the globe, these crowds are gathering, the moments getting more frequent and merging together. This is the world where the rich elite , with all their rich cliques, think they are invincible and invisible.
Lefties today are the rich elite who have nothing but contempt for the worlds underclass. Their unspoken solution to the environmental problem is to wage wars, make money and cull the underclass. Beware the liberal agenda, it is not what the elite owned media, political pundits and feminists propagandists say it is.
Of course this sounds like paranoia and conspiracy theory. So many of us are mad you know.(sic ) When Assange made his first appearance in a London Magistrates Court, the magistrate expostulated : ‘You are a narcisist.’ The police and judiciary are the new psychiatrists it seems. But how do I know, where does false consciouness end and true consciousness beigin? That is the Marxian enigma.
Proof Jeremy Corbynitsyn sees the future Posted December 6th 2019
Absolute proof that Jeremy Corbyn is Rushin and should be Prime Minister. Yesterday he revealed his power of seeing the future, a very bright future, a blinding light of a future. He told reporters he watches the Queen’s Speech every year hours before it is broadcast.
This is definitely the man for us. Sit him down in front of a blank TV screen, no need to plug it in because he is already plugged in. Then he sees it all. I am sure it is not just a gift confined to the Queen’s speech. this is the Uri Geller of politics, the man to protect us from what only he can see. He sounds more prescient than David Ike. So vote Labour and be safe.
She Deserves More Posted December 6th 2019
Here is the latest pot boiler from the top of the range laptop of top of the range posh lady author Gill Simms. Her previous materpieces include ‘Why Mummy Doesn’t Give a F–K’ and ‘Why Mummy Swears’. It is very hard being posh, all that prep school, boarding school. life of luxury, rich boyfriends to choose from, and then the hell of babies and life in a NW5 luxury home near Hampstead Heath. I know what hell it is in NW5. I used to live there. There is nothing much to do except push the pram and drink fine wine with your girlfriends. All those parties are such a bind, espececially the Tories. Family, says silly Gilly is a sentence – a life sentence no less.

A Distraction Posted December 4th 2019
It is all about the money and faceless ones. Buckingham will vote Tory now that Bercow has gone- most in this constituency thought he was Tory anyway. I can’t show the Tory brochure because it was the first to arrive and the first for me to throw awa..
People around here and in all the comfortable parts of the country will think more police is a good thing.the more urgent need for police reform is never mentioned because the idea of police corruption is beyond their self interested mind set.
I could go on, but what is the point? I cannot change things for the better. The pen is not mightier than the sword or our institutionally corrupt political, police, justice and financial system. It is not stronger than the jails our elite have for have built for us. Boris plans to build more prisons. That tells us a lot about the future he expects. i say expects because Tories do no act, they react, they are reactionary. Brexit is a sideshow, a distraction.

Self Righteous Hate Posted December 4th 2019
There is much self righteous indignation and thought control from media and authorities in Britain since the killing of young Cambridge graduates Jack Merritt and Saskia Jones , who died in the London Bridge attack. They were killed by convicted terrorist Usman Khan.
Jack’s father said “Jack would be seething at his death being used to perpetuate an agenda of hate,” he says. “Focus on rehabilitation, not revenge.”
The terrorist’s father has blamed the West for his son’s radicalisation. Speaking from his home in the ancient city of Fez, in northern Morocco, Mohammed Zaghba claimed his son had been a “decent young man” until he fell into the company of violent Islamists in East London.
He told The Sunday Telegraph: “The West is exploiting Muslim youth. There are criminals out there who are manipulating young men into doing these dreadful things, and most of them seem to be in the West.
The attack prompted the Ministry of Justice to review the licence conditions of every convicted terrorist released from prison, which Prime Minister Boris Johnson said was “probably about 74” people.
Editorial Comment Non Muslims generally do not understand the Muslim mindset. Because the obsession here is with creating a multi cultural heaven, serious questions are banned on pain of prosecution.
The British Empire was multi cultural. It was a very violent place, with British ruling classes exploiting religious bigotry fears and ignorance. What we have in Britain is pretty much the same thing but in a much more confined space.
Unfortunately, though one must sympathise with the man who lost his up and coming graduate son, one has to understand and accept the mindset of the man who killed him.
Hatred and division is a serious problem in Britain. It is not going to be resolved by censorship, self righteousness police or thought control anymore than cancer will be resolved by prayers. In both cases it is basically an issue of looking at and questioning the environment causing those problems.
A lot of the white hate preachers responding to the latest London Bridge atrocities are, like those seen running away from it on Saturday, just afraid for their own futures and lives in a society where politicians are arrogant, patronising, condescending, overpaid, thus out of touch and incompetent.
There is also the issue of the unspeakable politicians who started the so called war on terror- most notably lying smoothie Tony Blair- and the likes of David Cameron who supported lies and carnage in Libya and Syria.
Rushing to Judgement on Russia Posted December 3rd 2019
The U.S British alliance are out to isolate Russia in every sphere, including the money mad world of sport. Thanks to a Russian defector, Russia now faces an Olympic ban next year. There is evidence that the that the drug data files have been tampered with, but that doesn’t matter. So how much did they pay for that?
If you want to beat a dog, find a stick. Britain ceratinly has drugs cheats, and what about Kenya? As for the chief stone thrower, the United States, remember the bible , and he who is without sin amongst you, let him cast the first stone. Robert Cook
Chinese Whispering Posted December 3rd 2019
‘Message to Chinese govt: good relations between countries are based on mutual respect and honouring the legally binding agreements between them. That is the best way to preserve the great relationship between the UK and China‘
— Whispering Jeremmy Hunt contact Jeremy Hunt (@Jeremy_Hunt) July 3rd 2019
That message comes from a very patronising Tory Minister. It is quite obvious that Britain and the United States have a very dangerous agenda in relation to China.
The British Empire and its U.S offspring have always operated on the basis of expediency, abusing and exploiting their own underclass. Their wars are not about human rights and democracy. They are about more money for themselves.
The Chinese are not stupid. Hong Kong was stolen from them at the end of the Opium Wars. It is now a clearing house for Chines dirty money.
Swear at a police officer and you could end up in a British Crown Court, as I did in 2018, threatened with jail regardless of the extreme malpractice and misconduct of the complaining officer. Fire a burning arrow at a Chinese police officer and it is for human rights. Robert Cook

A Chief Superintendent is being probed over claims sex encounter happened in a cop car – according to a story by Thomas Brown of the Sun newspaper last May.
‘ROMP probe cop Gareth Blair was suspended yesterday — as it emerged officers are also investigating his alleged tryst partner.
The Chief Superintendent, 48, has been placed on leave after we revealed claims he was caught with a woman, both in a state of undress at an Edinburgh Park and Ride.
It’s thought officers were initially “discouraged” from taking the probe further.
But senior colleagues later realised formal action had to be pursued.
Next up is another Sun police story. Metropolitan Police boss Dame Cressida Dick condemned two police orientated dramas. As part of her rant, she said: “I was absolutely outraged by the level of casual and extreme corruption being portrayed.” She was talking about ‘Line of Duty.’
She also took aim at Bodyguard, starring Richard Madden and Keeley Hawes.Telling Radio Times how the series was perceived, she said: “It drove everybody round here ( her police cronies ) absolutely up the wall.
“I actually did have to switch it off after about 20 minutes.
“The moment when the Home Secretary made a pass at the protection officer was just beyond me.”
This woman is either ridiculously out of touch or a self interested liar in favour of censorship. Did she miss the Prescott affair and all the other tales of corrupt bent cops. Did she sleep through the police cover up of her ordering the police illegal killing of an innocent Brazilian.
It sounds alarming that top cops initially blocked an inquiry and an investigation into the Scots police chief having sex in the firms time in the taxpayer’s luxury car- even though two arresting officers saw him.
I cannot think of a more suitable name for a top cop when she thinks ‘Line of Duty’ shows too much police corruption. The British police are riddled with top down corruption which is why her predecessor’s predecessor chose to resign, after awarding a massive contract to a friend.
It is why she got promoted soon after the Stockwell killing which she ordered and which her friends covered up.
Jig Saw Posted December 2nd 2019
We are almost at the end of the centenary year of the Versailles Peace Settlement following the end of World War One. The key aspect of this settlement was it being non negotiated. It piled all the blame, guilt and debt on Germany, forcing national bankruptcy, poverty and despair on innocent Germans who’s families had bled in a war led by three in bred Royal cousins, King Edward V11, Kaiser Wilhelm II and Tsar Nicholas II, all nephews of Queen Victoria.
Hence the rise of Hitler, the Nazi Party and World War Two. Now we have the quiet WorldWar Three. Quiet here in Europe and the U.S.A if you discount all the street crime, terrorism, anti terrorist spying on us all and, ethnic violence that is. Did you see all the cool Londoners running for their lives when they heard about the mad Muslim knifeman near their cool restaurants?
While studying to be a psychologist back in the 1980s, I came across an article in the Canadian Journal of Psychology. The writer explained that we have short and long term memories. Studies suggested that we can only take in four new things at a time which have to be digested and stored long term before we go on to digest the next four new things.
I put that idea into practice when teaching students to play guitar. Many would want to know all at once. Often I was asked how they could learn to play fast. The answer was simply to start by playing slowly at first.
That of course is not the mainstream approach to education or the work place it leads to. Lower class People are not supposed to learn more than their place in the world. Diversity may offer religious and gender diversity, but not freedom of thought or self expression- unless you count the consequences of creating anomie and religious bigotry, like the latest London Islamic motivated stabbings.
To be able to slow down and digest the fast moving complexity of the modern world, one needs to understand the philosophical concept of reductionism. In my days as a long distance runner, training 100 miles a week, each 20 mile run at speed needed to be digested a mile at a time, then resetting my clock.
I had an ex Royal Navy CPO coach who taught me from an early age. He would be done for child abuse today. Role models like him are thin on the ground today. He taught me how to break it down, lean forward to enhance my centre of gravity when running up hill while competitors were flailing behind me,
Two years ago this Christmas I was out driving a truck loaded with big domestic appliances- which we had to install over 15 hour shifts and miles of travel. My sidekick was Carol, a rather prickly off hand 40 something interesting Polish guy.
Obviously I wanted to know his life story. He had been an architect in his home country. I asked him how he went about designing large blocks of flats or offices because they seemed so complicated. At last I had made him laugh. ‘It is not complicated at all. Can you do a 500 piece jig saw puzzle?’ He asked me. ‘Yes’ I replied. ‘Well that is all it is, a 500 piece jig saw puzzle 500 times over.’
So that is how one makes sense of the wider world which only seems big because we are small. If we can use our brains to understand the basics, then we can see through all the cons. People repeat themselves in patterns the world over. That enables politicans, big and small business people to con us into buying crap we do not need and cannot afford. Public servants get paid too much to tell us who we are, what we are and what therapy – retail or medical-we need. If we don’t fit then the cops will come along and fit us up or take us to the looney bin. Cops listen to command and control and run on rails.
Radicalisation is just a word, a box, the elite run authorities use to contain us – which the lower orders pay for. It doesn’t need to be confined to Muslim nut cases. One way or another we have radicalisation in every acceptable PC area of our lives- radical feminists are just as mad and lethal as radical Muslims. They can’t think for themselves. They are just one piece of a jig saw which when you finish it will look just like another Bosch painting horror show. Robert Cook
Saxe Coburg Gotcha! Posted December 1st 2019
The Plot Posted December 1st 2019
The Plot December 1st 2019
For many of us there is no point in voting in the upcoming General Election. We have three main parties offering goodies that the lower classes will mainly fund through taxation. We have the Scottish National Party empowered to hold balance in all Britain whilst there are no English or Welsh Nationalists in the Scottish Parliament.
Devolution is another of Tony Blair’s nasty divide and rule strategies – such strategy was used to build the British Empire, one of its first colonies going on to become the United States.
I think it was R.A Butler who originally wrote ‘Power comes out of the barrel of a gun.’ Guns are certainly the order of the day in global politics. Guns and all the other weapons are expensive. They have to be paid for, mainly by the lower orders who also suffer from the resulting chaos and insecurity. This does not matter so long as the massive arms companies make massive profits.
These issues do not feature in election manifestos. We have female politicians fixated on banning bad language and more police to protect women from domestic violence and rapists. If there are so many rapists in Britain maybe they should ban viagra which is used at record levels because men cannot get excited about women without it.
Back in the late 1960s and 70s when I first took an interest in politics, keeping public spending down was the mantra for getting elected. Tories portrayed Labour as spendthrifts. Labour tried to do what they were created to do, protect the workers from the bosses natural tendency to exploit and abuse them. This led to regular strikes, economic stagnation, against a background of Imperial decline and hedonistic youth culture.
Margaret Thatcher and her henchmen stepped on to the political stage after the famous 1978/79 winter of discontent. I was living in London at the time. Lorry drivers, Fire brigade and refuse collectors went on strike. I was teaching in South London at the time, where every day the mountain of rubbish on Wandsworth common approached Everest proportions. The smell was overwhelming.
Greedy print workers rushed to support Thatcher and her low taxation policies. They were masters of the old ‘hot metal’ print system, commanding thousands of pounds a month. Strange how they did not see the digital age coming. They were wiped out, along with the coal miners and so many others. Few realise that Thatcher was also the one who opened the door to mass immigration for the sake of cheap labour. She was a war monger who was setting a little fire in the Middle East while Blair was hardly out of the MP nappy stage.
So now we have an election to resolve the Brexit impasse. The name of the game is to offer the best lie that Britain has left Europe while actually staying in on worse terms for the masses. Both parties are offering distractions with promises of more doctors, police officers and nurses. None talk of the need to improve efficiency in these areas and tackle profligate vested interests. None talk of the inherent dangers of their multi cultural lies.
Diversity is a more dangerous con than Brexit because people can only be diverse as long as it is the right sort of diversity. The right sort of diversity is the sort that has ridiculous fights between terfs ( trans exclusionary radical feminists ), LGBTQ people and Muslims. While the rest of the British masses rush to buy apparently discounted electrical goods on a Black Friday which goes on for months, they don’t get the plot. Robert Cook
Spacewomen and alien life forms Posted November 29th 2019
Shakespeare was being very kind to humans when he wrote:
‘What a piece of work is man
‘How noble in reason.
‘How infinite in faculty
‘In thought and movement
‘how express and admirable
‘In apprehension how like a God’
Today’s Radical feminists have a big problem with Shakespeare because of his portrayal of women. There is also the issue that in his day Queen Elizabeth 1st would not allow females to perform on stage- perhaps she wanted none of them to upstage her! Young men dressed and made up as women got the jobs in Shakespeare’s plays. Lucky for them there were no TERFS around- TERFS: Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists.
Queen Elizabeth 1st famously proclaimed, in the wake of Sir Francis Drake’s victory over the Spanish Armada in 1588, ‘Though I have the feeble body of a woman, I have the heart and soul of a man.’
Feminists are a driving force behind political correctness. The rich powerful exploitative ruling elite are the driving force behind feminism. They opened the door for Greer, Walden, Boycott et al, backing and funding this poisonous divisive phenomenon. Take a look at the story below, relating to an incident reported by Metro on March 2017.
‘Fists were flying in Speakers’ Corner, London, when the Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminists (TERFs) and their enemies Trans Activists clashed in the bust-up at 7pm on Wednesday.
‘Footage taken before the police arrived shows activists charging at each other, throwing punches and smashing cameras on the concrete.
Mother-of-two Maria MacLachlan, a member of TERF who describes herself as a ‘gender critical feminist’, was hit to the floor when things turned violent.
She had joined around 50 TERF members who came together for a talk entitled What is Gender? The Gender Recognition Act and Beyond.
The group, who advocate women-only spaces and oppose some campaigning by transgender women, had originally scheduled to meet at a community centre in New Cross, South-East London, but changed the location last-minute after warnings of a protest from Trans Activists.
Sisters Uncut, an LGBTQ+ Society from Goldsmiths University, and Action For Trans Health London were among the groups who threatened to protest the talk.
For the full story see the Diversity page. This is the reality of diversity. Women, men, all sorts of LGBTQ, Uncle Tom Cobbly and all, riding on Tom Pearce’s old grey mare. It is all rather funny in a perverse sort of way. As a last point, I do think it is time that men ahd safe spaces to protect them from liars and potential offenders against their physical and sexual well being.
I am sick and tired of men being stereotyped as simultaneously rapists and impotents who need viagra to satisfy insatiable women. There is also the fact that nearly70 % of known rapists in urope are immigrants from the Middle East and North Africa. The Nemesis feminist group have been attacked by Terfs during a demonstration in Paris for stating this truth. This is clear evidence of a sex war on white men.
Former Met Police Boss Anger at Conviction of a protegee. Posted November 28th 2019
The British police are incompetent, overpaid, overesteemed with senior officers under employed and self interested.
When Boris Johnson became Mayor of London he approached the bumbling police Chief Sir Ian, now Lord Blair. Johnson said to this highly paid dubious failure, ‘Ian, if I was asked if I had confidence in you I would have to say no.’
Blair was forced to resign. He went on to write a fat boring expensive memoir protesting his innocence and how he had been God’s gift to London’s police.
Among other highly questionable decisions, including the awarding of police contracts to outside bodies, Blair promoted Commander Cresida Dick after she had ordered the shooting of an innocent 28 year old Brazilian electricians. I knew the ACPO police firearms lead officer at the time. He told me that Blair and Dick were excellent police officers.
Now as the elevated Lord Blair of Boughton this man concerned about the prosecution of Novlett Robyn Williams, an acting chief superintendent in the Metropolitan Police, of which Lord Blair was once the failed commissioner. Having been tipped as a potential future female ethnic minority commissioner at Scotland Yard, Williams’s career is effectively over.
In a letter to The Times today, Lord Blair questions whether the prosecution of Williams for possessing an indecent image of a child was in the public interest. When people like him say the public interest they mean the elite class interest.
The British police hide behind the myth of accountability. The official complaints body and the Professional Standards department work hand in hand to cover up corrupt practice in the pursuit of injustice. It is aamazing this officer was ever brought to justice. Most of them get away with it and rise high in the British Police Farce. Robert Cook
Power Posted November 28th 2019
Watergate journalist Bob Woodward opens his book on Donald Trump Fear Trump in the Whitehouse with a Trump quote. The quote comes from an interview with Woodward on March 31st 2016. The quote is “Real Power is-I don’t even want to use the word-fear.”
History is full of fearful tyrants. Many lived and died by the sword. Julius Caesar was stabbed in the back. Power is open to challenge from the person behind you, but not from below. It is far more insideous in advanced industrial societies. The cameras, bugs and recorders are everywhere.
Laws control permitted writing and speech, and hence our thoughts. There is an endless supply of Nazi minded minions to ensure control. I worked with people like that in the Inland Revenue and teaching. Women make the best ones, all in the name of feminism for them.
These societies have powerful institutions like the police. Ironically the more the police fail in their apparent duties, the more the public gives way clamouring for more of them. For the majority it is too abstract for them to realise that police duties and priorities have changed.
There is no doubt that fear is ubiquitous, so does that mean power is too? I think it is and always has been. In olden days fear was ultimately focused on God. Natural disasters and desease were seen as God’s will and punishments. Powerful rulers exploited this fear right into the nineteenth century. Religious fear and psychological protection still works for Muslims.
Meanwhile feminism wages war for female empowerment. For them enough is never enough. ‘We have further to go’ is a mantra for them. There is no logic in doubting that men have come to fear them- some women fear them too. It is again, an abstraction beyond most people to see feminism as an insideous process and part of the institutionalised power structure.
Back in the 1970s and 80s life was simple. Left was Communism and Socialism, Right was brutal capitalist exploitation. The ruling elite divided and ruled working people along racial line. Women were a sideshow. I summed it all up easily in my 1980 punk rock song Left Right. Some of the lyrics were:
‘They limit our horizons and fit us for a task
Dressed in blue overalls and carrying a flask
Left Right Left Right the headmaster roars
And mind you don’t stand talking and blocking up the doors
All running round in circles and marching up and down
Preparing for a life drifting round the town.’
In Britain the Swinging Sixties and the U.S Civil Rights movement seemed to have advanced freedoms for the masses, acting as an example for the rest of the world. But in the background the British were withdrawing from an empire they had divided and ruled for centuries. This left the Anglo American oil interest particularly concerned.
Now a new generation of baby boomer and their offspring are in charge. Women politicians and the LGBTQ are easily distracted by feminist and environmental issues packaged by the vested interests. Little Greta is an example of the latter. The downside of the consumerism the system depends on is not questioned.
The old Third World pumps out overpopulation wlecomed in the west by the rich elite. These people want the cheap labour, the lower orders do not. Any one who speaks out is a hate criminal according to myriad laws passed by this elite.
As an ex maths and science teacher, I know everything comes down to numbers and space. That is why there are riots and protests across the globe. Obviously the smug pampered rule making elite have to condemn this threat to their privileges, shooting people if necessary or locking them up, like Julian Assange. They don’t expect the masses to join up the dots because they own the media and control education.
As for the numbers, well these ones say it all : 8 people in the world own more wealth than the bottom 3.8 billion. That is a formula for more fear and more brutal power, insideous and naked as the need arises.
Sex Mad Posted November 26th 2019
Back in the mid 1970s, while working for the Inland Revenue in Havant Tax Office, Vernon Church became a restraining influence on my rather critical attitude to the tax system for which we were working. I was also a rather wild child.
My father died when I was 11, after a two year illness resulting from an accident as a truck driver. By this time, he had taught me a lot about the world, mechanics, electronics and woodwork.
He had a dream of building a workshop for both of us. Back in the 1950s and 60s fathers were the stallwarts holding the family together.
He kept his massive tool collection in the little back bedroom, showing it to me one Sunday night, arm around me saying ‘One day son this will all be yours.’
I could write much more about my father, but for now I just want to say that his sort of role model isn’t there for most if any working class boys. He had been a regular soldier, transfered to the Royal Military Police after being wounded at Dunkirk.
He taught himself French and German during those terrible years. Had his parents has any surplus money he would have taken up the opporunity of a scholarshiop to grammar school. My mother’s circumstances were similar. Poverty, however, did not stop them being wonderful inspiring caring parents.
Their attitudes were very British. My friend Vernon and his late wife Sylvia were no different. When I was young I used to tell him he was more British than me.
Now ‘Diversity’ has changed everything and there is more to come:
Anti-LGBT equality teaching protesters have reacted with claims of “white” bias after a judge permanently banned noisy demonstrations from outside Anderton Park primary school in Birmingham. The protestors are Muslim and are angry by this afront to their faith, upon which their world, or maybe other world is built.
A court granted Birmingham City Council an ordER temporarily banning protesters over safety fears about repeated large-scale demonstrations, often involving people with no direct connection to the school.
There is an irony about these conflicting groups. The LGBTQ group belive science is on their side. They have the truth about sex and sexuality. They are mad with those who oppress and ridicule them. Teaching thier views in schools to the very young is what they demand.
The Muslims have thier belief in God. It is their truth. They do not need science. God is bigger than science, God made everything and scientists are just trying to understand it. If they don’t buy into God theywill never know the truth until they arrive in hell. To these believers, the LGBTQ people are going to hell.
All along the way, Muslims and LGBTQ are so mad about sex, sex mad if you like. it is everything to them in this conflict. Sad how sex causes and reveals so much upset, anxiety, misery, brainwashing, guilt and hypocrisy. Sigmund Freud saw sex as the basis of a lot of mental illness . I agree with him.
Whatever I may think of Islam, teaching gender fluidity to infants seems insane. It is blatant social engineering, as is all diversity preaching. All it begets is conflict, pain and even war. Robert Cook
Fantasy beats evidence in Ye Olde Englande Posted November 25th 2019
My words today must be brief, after too many hours on the road, with more to come starting in the early hours of tomorrow morning. Today I was in Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Shropshire and Herefordshire. All was pretty much a grey blur with so much rain and haze.
Off the top of my head Worcester is famous for apples and sauce. It is also HQ to one of Britain’s very corrupt police forces. I can think of two men they hid and created evidence to jail two men for 17 years for crimes they did not commit. Britian’s main police priority is themselves.
One was a 17 year old boy, at the time a simple minded grave digger, who reported finding a body in Kidderminster Cemetery. They are also the force who spent years and a fortune trying to jail me for exposing corrupt senior officers. Evidence doesn’t matter to them.
Ironically folks in the U.S get a sanitised romanticised image of Britain and its people, from television and scripted tourism. It works the other way with U.S films and TV misleading the gullible badly educated British masses. Reality TV isn’t even reality once the auditions and cameras click on. Evidence doesn’t matter to them.
So, today I started my deliveries in sedate Cheltenham- actually a nightmare when I visit in the early hours of Saturday morning when drunk young men and women lay on their backs in the town centre, after hours in the clubs.
Today, however, no troublesome lost youths. It was cold and dark when I exited my cab, then imagine my excitement when I looked across the road and spied an old London Transport Routemaster bus washed up on an island among the twee shops and restaurants.
On to other places then Worcester looking worse than ever in the damp. The High Street was bustling with council men under direction from a haughty young council commissar. She warned me that deliveries would be a problem starting on Thursday until Saturday when many roads would be closed.
This is because they are having a Victorian style Christmas Fair- or should I write in Ye Olde EnglIsh Christmas Fayre?
I wondered whether the council lady would find a spot in her Victorian diorama for the young man I had spoken to just as he was waking up in his bed on the High Street sidewalk. I am sure he could have been kitted out as a Victorian beggar, maybe earned a few pennies, lending real authenticity and evidence that olde Englande has not moved on. But the powers that be do not like evidence for their fantasy land in case it raises any doubts.
Having a Laugh November 24th 2019
Editorial November 24th 2019
Listening to smug cocky BBC radio Four yesterday, while driving to Bognor and back, I might as well have been listening to imaginary life forms broadcasting from Mars or even deeper into the galaxy.
The Channel was rife with the pundits’ General Election excitement. Obviously highly paid comfortable BBC people do not share concerns about the key issues of mass immigration and bewildering diversity as do the lower orders. Anyone who worries about that is a hate criminal, facing social ostracism, unemployment , jail and slow death.
First up was Nick Robinson on the Today programme. He was down in the port of Felixstowe. He couldn’t understand why most of his interviewees weren’t interested in voting. The only port worker who cared was a woman who would vote for the party offering the best cheapest child care so she could go to work without worry.
Subsidised child care for predominantly single parent families helps businesses keep labour costs cheap and trade unions at bay. Mass immigration has the same effect on wages and increases prices of food and accommodation- adding even more profit.
The men interviewed at Felixstowe just could not see the point of voting, having no expectations that any of the parties would honour their expensive promises. The woman, however, would be very happy to vote for child care.
This is all very interesting to me. The BBC pundits still talk about elections as if we are still in the 1960s and 70s- where and when the war was between bosses and Trade Unions. It as if Maragaret Thatcher’s devastating policies and the global economy never happened.
Paranoia about Russian interference in British, U.S and so many other elections is a manifestation of that globalisation. We have a British and U.S elite dominated global government, from which Russia is excluded until it joins the consensus.
British voters are either profoundly clued in members of vested interests or voting/canon fodder, badly educated, policed in every area of their lives, fearful, jealous, watched by police.cameras 24/7 in shrinking public spaces, paranoid, nostalgic for a non existent golden age, ignorant of history and the fact that this election is not about Brexit, taxes or better social/economic policies. It is about fooling most of the people most of or maybe even just some of the time- that some being election time.
To the posh powerful pundits and their paymasters it is all just a game. They are having a laugh.
Bugger Bognor November 23rd 2019
Listening to BBC Radio Four tends to irritate and annoy me. The whole tone is smug. However, reading between the lines it is rather informative. My trucking mission today took me to Bognor Regis in West Sussex. Much loved King George V’s last words are widely, but incorrectly, reported as being: Bugger Bognor – at least that is what British authorities say.
The King was a heavy smoker and, in 1928, he fell ill with a chest infection. He spent some time recuperating at Sir Arthur du Cros’s house in the south-coast town of Bognor and, the story goes, when he was leaving the town he was petitioned to rename it Bognor Regis as a mark of his visit. The famous ‘Bugger Bognor!” remark may or may not have been his reply but, sadly, they weren’t his dying words.
Still Bognor got its Royal name, Regis. Today, however, viewing the place drenched in grey light and drizzle, I too thought ‘bugger Bognor.’ So before driving out of it, I tuned into Radio Four. Nine times out of ten the first voice I hear on this channel is female.
So no disappointment this morning. As soon as I tuned in I heard a woman with gruff rough affected working class tone of voice, a Labour MP, saying that Labour was going to do much more to create ‘safe female spaces’. I think it was Caroline Flint. This she said was why women should vote Labour. They are the majority of the population and face abuse and threats everywhere as they fight for equality she said.
Pressed on the issue of why transexuals could not share these spaces, she was evasivse, pressing on about females always being under threat, thus needing sanctuary.
Clearly there is something very wrong with British society if so many of its men are out to seriously harm women. Or could it be that the slightest raising of a man’s voice or sign of disagreement is a woman’s excuse to call the police. A police officer told me that 80% of his call outs are domestics.
Private space is decreasing and men need to take care if they don’t want ruin and life on the streets or behind bars.. The gender debate is hideously one sided. When a woman makes allegations against a man, because she is equal but allegedly always vulnerable, she must be believed. This is poisonous and unjust bull-it.
In my view men, because of this awful gender competitive environment and never ending war, need safe spaces at least every bit as much as women. Serious gender segregation needs to make a come back, starting at school, chaperones and severe punishments for proven female liars. One must never point out that females are more likely to harm and/or kill children. There is always an excuse or syndrome. Feminism is not about equality, it is about power. No wonder more and more and more men strive to talk, walk and look like a ‘nice girl.’
For more on transexeuals, I suggest you make careful study of the Polly Sexual and Psychology pages. In a nutshell, the explosion of male to female transexuals is due to politically correct encouragement, aggressive militant feminism, lack of positive male role models and something in the water- men also fear being destroyed by vicious female liars.
If serious issues are not raised and addressed there are going to be long term outcome for Britain’s mainstream society. No ideology, that includes feminism has all the answers . Mainstream poiticians are afraid of feminism.
The CPS, backed by our criminally corrupt dishonest police. is going for 60% conviction of rapists. Germaine Greer has not been heard of since she said ‘most rapes are bad sex.’
I am not arrogant, so don’t claim monopoly on truth. Those that do have a history of causing , terrible injury, misery and loss of life. Britaijn is corrupt, with no fair claim to democracy. It is far less honest than China. Robert Cook
Ant ics Posted November 22nd 2019
Life is both simple and complex. Start simple and you get to understand the complexity. Ants are robotic. They follow the pheremones. Obstruct the the leading ant with just a puff of talcum powder and the ant army will go off trail entering the line behind it. The whole ant line ends up going around in circles. That is the world of ant antics, ants going ics– in circles.
Humans are not that different to ants. The person who drops the powder on the ant pheremone trail is invisible to the ant trail. The people in charge of this world’s massively ignorant massive population know how to have us all going around in ever decreasing corcles till we get angry, then start blaming and killing each other out of frustration and panic. Our ruling elites view us as ants, and ants as pests. Some of us even still have Queens.
Pulling Apart Posted November 21st 2019
Ms Rachel Ara blames bigoted male students for anonymous complaints leading to her being no platformed. She says it is because some men have problems with women like her drawing attention to the terrible experience of being female today. She denies being transphobic. She says that any such allegations are factless.
The problem with the whole LGBTQ situation is that there is a dearth of facts. Whatever side a person is on, facts are in short supply. It is very much about opinion, prejudice, self interest, social norms, new and old, expediency and what feminists want us to think. LGBTQ like feminism is a blob. It would be uplifting, encouraging and stimulating to hear from women who are not part of those blobs.
I was brought up by as strong woman who lost her husband when she was in her early thirties. We lived in grinding poverty, she had no high paid outlets for her talents but I never heard her complain about being a woman. She was the most important person in my life. All she cared about was her kids- my feelings as well.. I am sick of career obsessed bourgoise moaning women.
Bleating as Ms Ara does, about universities being places for discussion and debate does not wash. It is her school of left wing bigots who have created this nightmare world of intolerance in scant disguise of being the opposite.
From experience at two universities, , as a teacher and social science lecturer, I have met many feminists annd concluded that they wish to pull apart the natural bond between male and female in the name of female liberation and fulfillment. Many of them cannot stand the rivalry created by transexuals et al in the dangerous process of pulling apart what used to hold society together.
I am very sceptical of transexualism which is why the story of Polly Sexual is being serialised on this site. The more children are told at school to believe in God, as I was back in the 1950s, the more they will believe it. The more a person does something the more obsessive and ingrained it becomes. So just imagine being told you can be any sex or even race you choose, as they are being told today.
Feminists like Ms Ara may say they are listening to other opinions, but if so, only to tell others why they are wrong. Once you have been doing, saying and thinking what she has for so long, there is no way of changing that person. It is on a par with all forms of political and religious ideology and very dangerous.
Instead of pulling together, ordinary men and women are being pressured by State and media sponsored feminism to pull apart. Because we are all half man half woman, and men idolise and idealise their daughters, most are too stupid and self interested to see the danger. For further reading I suggest Simone de Beeauvoir’s ‘Woman as Other’ and ‘The Second Sex’. Freud on the ‘electra complex’ is also informative.
The Wild West November 20th 2019
President Donald Trump is probably the most divisive U.S President for over a century- maybe except for Lincoln who started a Civil War..
Impeachment seems to be normalised here to hash out a political difference between Trump and the touchy feelie Democrats. So you can’t beat Trump at the ballot box, Saint Hilary missed the boat, bring on impeachment.
The Democrats are setting a dangerous precedent so it could happen to the them, especially if they can’t come up with candidates better than biddable Biden or Corrupt Clinton- whose history goes back to Whitewater and Billy big Willie Clinton- the man with links to Epstein and had his intern Monica Lewinsky smoke a cigar with her vagina in his Oval Office.
There is no evidence of quid pro quo, high crimes, bribery or misdemeanours. Britain and the U.S deep State do not like Trump’s efforts to withdraw from the Middle East and to make friends with Russia -too much money at stake.
Ukraine is a vile corrupt East European Country and the Bidens were in it for money. Why should they get military aid if they are doing dirty deals with a would be corrupt U.S presidential candidate Jo Biden – a man happy to feed Ukraine’s corruption?
Whatever happens as a result of these long winded and expensive impeachment hearings, Biden and Clinton are not fit for high office. As long as money is essential to becoming President there are always going to be problems getting a candidate with virtue. Robert Cook
Two Faced Bond
Editorial November 20th
For us fans of the late James Bond secret agent films, the bond between British and United States Secret Services was made very clear. The bond is also clear between the U.S and British ruling elites. Founding father George Washington was from a wealthy British landowning family, and also a slave owner.
The colony broke away for tax reasons during the rule of mad King George. The two nations are so close that I call the whole arrangement Brimerica and its peoples the Brimericans. Out of the pair, it is hard to tell which is the tail and which is the dog- the Blair Bush partnership being a perfect example of this confusion.
The U.S has its roots in Britain, especially England from where it derives its basic culture. In foreign policy they are as one. As democracies they are equally fake and disingenuous. In all my years of living, I have never heard the words ‘defending our Western Style democracies bandied around so much as in the post 9/11 years.
So now we have lies about Syria using chemical weapons as an excuse to bomb and kill in Alepo because the Brimericans don’t like Assad and want his country;s oil. We have a thumbs up to Israel taking more land and bombing Syria yesterday because Assad has been winning.
Bolivia, Ecuador and Venezuala have been added to the list of targets for Brimercan style democracy, a style more ‘Wild West’ than west. The misery of the bombed out riot torn lower orders is as nothing compared to ensuring the safety of the top few per cent’s parasitical luxury life style.
When it comes to whistleblowers, the Brimercan elite love it when Trump is in the dock bcause of them. But when Brimercan war crimes are exposed by Assange and Wikileaks heads must roll.
Britain has done its bit to back bogus rape allegations so as to trap and extradite Julian Assange to face Brimerican style injustice along with Chelsea Manning. It wasn’t just the war crimes, wikileaks exposed the plot to block Bernie Sanders from the Democratic (sic) nomination in favour of Saint Feminist Hilary Clinton -wife of a sex fiend. What a bond, and bondage for the masses too.
Egonomics Posted November 19th 2019
Economics along with all social sciences originated in the turmoils of the industrial revolution, Like that revolution, it is British in design. Britain built an empire conquiering foreign lands, stealing reources and stamping its ideas and ideologies world wide. Religious bigotry and idiocy was crucial to their divide and rule strategy.
Nowadays they have added ‘diversity’ to their illusion of tolerance. Diversity actually creates conflict which is what the elite know and love. Thir latest trick comes from British college and university bosses announcing that students can choose their own race as well as gender.
At the time of World War One, the British, German and Russsian monarchs were first cousins, with much in common- including greed and family rivalries on a global scale. It is all very simple really and amenable to what philospohers call reductionism.
So it is easy to see and understand what is going on in the world today. As in 1914, the world’s wealth- wealth is technically defined as money and resources surplus to immediate survival- is in very few hands . It is in the hands of a global elite.
Key represenatives of that elite are, U.S Deep State, Britain’s thriving arms industry, The City of London, Wall Street, The EU, Donald ‘puppet’ Trump, Saudi Arabia, Hong Kong and all the puppets Britain and the U.S want installed in Latin America.
The human cost of their greed and lies does not bother them because they have an innate sense of superiority. The masses are easily distracted by hunger in poor countries, by feminism, family tensions, banal entertainments and violence coming out of blaming one another. Meally mouthed state officials and media love it.
So now things seem to be going the way the U.S wants it in Iran. U.S sanctions slavsihly backed by Britain have crippled the Iranian economy. The vast oil rich nation has gone from exporting two million barrels of oil a day to 200,000. Oil prices have sky rocketed and the riots have started
U.S Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said that they will leave Iran alone ‘as soon as it behaves like a normal nation.’ Obviously Pompeo has no problem with Saudi Arabia’s definition of normality in action. Robert Cook
Paeodoville Posted November 17th 2019
Even hardened violent criminals get to feel good about themselves compared to paeodophiles. They talk like they deserve a medal for killing them.
Norfolk’s long gone Chief Constable dared to say that paeodophiles were more mental case than criminal case and that reserach needed doing to stop it. Intelectual police chiefs risk themeslves and jobs for saying such things.
Of course I am not going to be a hypocrit and say I am comfortable with paeodphiles. I was speechless when a work colleague said it was OK. It is not OK, but women do it as well, but are less likely to be found out and punished.
The first Duke of Westminster married a 12 year old, as did the prophet Mohammed. Certain groups have always been above criticism. Now, at long last Prince Andrew has spoken at length to the elegant Emily Maitliss of the BBC about allegattions that he is a paedophile.
Apparently he can’t remember meeting the young woman he allegedly molested three times and has been pictured with in the press. I am surprsied that he can remember meeting with his old friend convicted convicted paeodphile and milti millioaire Jeffrey Epstein shorty after Epstein’s release.
Perhaps he saw Jeffrey -who seemed to also have been a circus performer- his last failed trick was breaking his neck in two places whilst on suicide watch in a U.S Maximum securty jail. It is not very long since the white upper classes were selling their own people into slavery.
However, let’s play devil’s advocate for a moment , accepting that paeodophiles are born, their brains wired wrong. So they and society must live with it. That is the thinking behind building a special trailer park for them in California, to live under police supervision on release.
Dr James Cantor believes paeodophillia begins in the womb and cites brain scans to show what he calls faulty wiring. He argues that the normal caring attitude they should have to young people that their brains should display is converted into eroticisising them.
Freud’s influnce on psychology and psychiatry was short lived because of sexual hypocrisy and fear of looking at the reality of female sexuality. That hypocrisy si still with us, which is why Cantor only talks about male offenders .That is a big subject better left to my psychology page in due course.
Suffice it to say that Cantor ignores key issues. In the case of top level abuse, it is what the aristocracy have always done, hiding behind a genteel facade and ignoring laws made by their own class.
Regarding the lower orders, we need to look at the atomising of western society, militant feminism, marital breakdown and the sexualisation of the young among other things have played their part in creating this anomie.
There is certain research backed evidence that what happens to a child between 0 and 7 years old old determines ther future. Western countries, the U.S and U.K ar hot beds of greed , feminism and selfishness. They are atomised by modern socio economic relationships or lack of them New research shows that not only do the crucial years determine brain wiring, DNA is actually altered by key external influnces.
Obviously a rebirth of religious bigotry in the name of diversity and distraction miliates against any efforts to seek and popularise truth.
Modern societies thrive on elites fostering controlling information, mindless consumerism of goods entertainment and services. Paeodophiles are just another scapegoat for obvious bad outcomes. As I said they make all the other criminals feel better about themselves..
When I was training to be a psychologist, I came a cross an article in the Candadian Journal ofof Psychology. It was about research into jailed rapists. The report found that 99% pf convicts dispalyed serious issues with their mothers during upbringing. The importance of motherhood is now seen as a way of keeping brilliant women away from careers- yet we still have to accept Holy Mary mother of Goda and the Islamic equivalent.
It is one of the what should be obvious social truths that women simultaneously proclaim theier key jobs as mothers and in family, whilst agrressively competing to prove themselves much more than equal to men- this has much to do with the rush of males to change sex, as if that were possible because it is all in the mind. Meanwhile bear in mind that Dr Cantor argues that at least one in four of the population are paeodophiles. Robert Cook
Whiter than White Helmets Posted November 17th 2019
White helmets founder James Le Mesurier died after apparently falling from his balcony this week.
Le Mesurier was a man of many talents and achievements. His White helmets won an Oscar from Hollywood luvvies because they were always on the scene of apparent Syrian government outrages against helpess U.S and British backed Islamic extremist rebels. Thus film producer and propogandist must be added to his credits.
So it is not surprising that Russia dubbed this hero a spy. An ex army officer, Le Mesurier also had a role editing Wikipedia pages making left winger to be seen in a worse light. He made so many entries that many think he was leader of a large group of intelligence officers using a false name.
Britain’s elite, with the best of breeding and education have always had the edge on intelligence gathering and counter intelligence. They may look like bumbling idiots at cocktail parties, but one should always beware the smiling face of the Tiger. they had ample opportunity to assasinate Hitler and crush the Nazis before 1938.
They did not want to, they did not want to help Germany who they had helped France punish for World War One – a greed war between inbred Euro elites. They feared the Soviets more than the Nazis who they thought they could tame use as an anti communists. The mentality has not changed which is why Europe is in crisis and Brexit is a sideshow. Robert Cook
What do politicians do when they die? They lie still. Posted November 16th 2019
Top Tory Michael Gove insists Nigel Farage’s accusations are nonsensical. Farage has said Brexit Party candidates were offered jobs and peerages in return for standing down in the election. He told BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme Brexit Party leader Farage was being ridiculous asking for a police investigation.
Of course this is all about Brexit, so Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has complained to Ofcom that because Sky TV are calling this the Brexit election makes it all about Boris Johnson and the Tories. The election should be about why Britain created so many of the tedious rules in Europe and did nothing to reform the EU over the years.
What all of Britain’s political parties do not talk about is how far into the metaphoriocal- and in some cases real- mud the mass of lower class British have been ground down into.
Africa and the Middle East is a disaster area for many reasons that I have explained elsewhere and will come back to. For now, let’ s consider the impact of the ongoing open door immigration policies which Liberal and Labour adore and Tories fear to criticise.
It is behind a lot of Britain and Europe’s serious social problems. Virtue signallers like England football manager Gareth Southgate, with his fixation on fielding as many black players as possible, makes the situation worse.
Football used to be an outlet and identity base for working class men. Now it is all about the money, the millions -and fake equality. Nice millionaires like Southgate and Corbyn makes themselves look and feel good on TV and in the newsapers fighting racism, but they are all about distraction and making the lower class masses feel worse. Riots, far right movements and suicides are obvious and inevitable outcomes.
Now millionaire feminist pop singer Lilly Allen- she rose on the coat tails of her working class father Keith – wants to ban Rule Britannia. What next? Robert Cook
Much more to come tomorrow. I have been on the very busy difficult roads of England since 2 am this morning and only just back. Time to relax.
Pick Me Up Love it Chat November 15th 2019
To me the most interesting story in this array of wag mags carries the story of a woman who cut off her partner’s penis and one testicle because he showed naughty pictures to his friends.
Obviously his partner played the He was goint to rape me card. In Britain this would have worked and the emascuaalted man would have seen jail. But this was Buenos Aires, so she got 18 years.
The man had his manhood reattached but no hope for his testicle. Apparently he is now very insecure, undable to believe his penis belongs to him any more and unable to trust women. This case is highly symbolic of future gender relationships. Robert Cook
Get used to Hiding November 15th 2019
After the white Christian settlers from Britain delivered genocide against the native Red Indians, they set about engineering a ‘New World.’ As time passed, more people were needed, the colony had become the United States. Black slaves were ‘liberated’ but still hated. The new nation pledged that ‘all men are created equal.’
This new nation called itself the melting pot melding all cultures and nationalities into one nation. Its intellectuals embraced sociology, in particular Functionalism.
There were different schools of thought within this would be science that has never been more than just another variable ideology- works rather like a variable speed limit varying with the weather, to catch you out and keep you in check.
Thus, United States academia embraced Talcott Parsons and his Structural Functionalism. This idea analysed society as comprising Goals, Adaptation mechanisms, Integrative institutions and Latent Tension Management system.
This concept is memorable through the pneumonic GAIL. Marxists argued that the system did not recognise conflict- nor did their concept, but that is another story.
The latest school shooting in the United States is not officially open to any form of analysis, through GAIL or Marxism. The mental health of young people, the effects of individualism, multi culturalism state brainwashing, elite greed, State propoganda/cover ups, censorship or broken homes are not recognised as influences.
The best the system can come up with to deal with campus shootings is Active Shooting Drills whereby fake shooters invade campuses with fake gun sand blanks to scare the kids, so they get used to hiding. Meanwhile the market for new fallout shelters and abandoned military ones is booming. Robert Cook
Trumping Trump November 14th 2019
Most peculiarly there has been a rolling campaign to impeach U.S President Donald Trump since before he was elected. Britain’s BBC, most notably via the World Service, campaigned vigorously against him.
Ambassador Taylor denies being the Democrats star witness, but it was he who claimed a staff member had heard Donald Trump making a deal with the new Ukranian President, an alleged professional comedian, to exchange military support for dirt on Democratic front runner Joe Biden.
Since there is no doubt about Biden and his son’s dirty dealings in Ukraine, one might wonder what the fuss is about. However, like its’ aged parent Britain, the U.S politcal system defaults to fake feminist equality multi cultural liberalism, rolling war for peace and arms dealing.
One should wonder why and how a White House protected underling has the opportunity to bug and report on the President. It is clear from former Ambassador to the U.S Nicky Hailey, that the Washington Deep State does not like Trump’s anti war agenda, or his concern to help the U.S rednecks. All they care about is trumping Trump. Robert Cook
Blame Boris November 14th 2019
The Prime Minister has had what has been called some plain speaking Yourkshire people telling him what they think about his slow respones to flooding.
This flooding is a threat to life, property and prosperity. Another 30 mm of rain is expected in Northern England over 6 hours today. While this is going on in Britain there are terrifying lethal bush fires in Eastern Australia and destructive floods in Venice.
So Boris is to blame for not being like King Canute and holding back the waters. This is wishful thinking.
On the one hand we are supposed to believe in climate change, so stop using our cars and flying. On the other hand we are not supposed to consider any other causes than rising carbon dioxide emissions for this change.
The mainstream media and related interest groups want us to accept globalisation as a force for good, with all the free movement of labour, capital and resulting social instability. This is justified as the way of the future and long term good for all.
Outside of the global elite we are not supposed to understand cause and effect and how globalisation is behind rolling wars in the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere. We are not supposed to realise that war has a massive carbon footprint. War, officially is all for the sake of ‘democracy’ and human rights .
World population has been doubling every fifty years since the industrial revolution. This rising population has access to mainstream media propoganda, so much of it has rising expectations. The Wealthy West is the beacon that draws them out of Third World darkness.
Meanwhile the truth has to be hidden. ‘Knowledge waits while teachers teach’ as Bob Dylan observed in his epic song ‘Something’s Happening here Mr Jones and you don’t know what it is.‘
Interestingly British politicians offer a nation of religious freedom of worship. This has become a necesstity because Islamists are very serious about God. For them the future is the afterlife. The Koran is their road map to heaven. It does not matter if they take a few detours along the way.
Terrorism and Islamaphobia are worrying many non Muslims. Thus we are told to woship in our own way and leave Muslims alone. This implies that we have to accept the biblical explanation for everything.
The bible warns of fire and flood comes as retribution for deviants. When it comes to the reality of fire and flood today, the global elite and their political cronies put the bible aside. They appluad little Greta’s naive nonsense about reducing carbon emissions. Meanwhile one way or another the forests are chopped down or burn.
Even in little Britain the trees go to accommodate more farmland for an ever expanding food demand. Without them the flood risk rises. Population growth is welcomed by the elite who thrive on cheap labour and mindless consumerism. To the elite, natural disasters and war are an occupational hazhard for their policies.
Boris Johnson is a media scapegoat because they fear he will trick the nation into the no deal Brexit the majority voted for- a majority laregly motivated by fears of non stop mass immigration and more multi culture at their expense
Writer of Wrongs Posted November 13th 2019
They say youth is wasted on the young. As I approach 70 years old my perspective has changed. Books and education are not enough to help us to understand.
Experience is very important. I thought I was very old at 30 because society wanted me to feel old. The ruling class tell us what to think, how to think and when to think it. That is why the police have ever more powers to invade our private space.
The corporate lie that it wants people to think outside the box is a joke. It is just brainstorming people to improve the security of the box. If you tell the powerful how you can think outside the box you are just helping them to make a better box, that is why they are asking you.
At first sight the British ruling class appear harmless, even so stupid one might wonder how they and their ancestors ever got so much wealth and power.
The answer is their dotty eccentric facade is intented to deceive. When mainstream media comes out with something apparently stupid, it is for a reason. The following page from elite owned peoples paper Daily Star is kite flying for a solution to Britain’s increasingly violent street culture.
So here’s the thing proposed on the Daily Star’s front page: put back on the old 1970w/80s TV series Grange Hill about life in a London Comprehensive School and all the violence will go away. The little kiddies in rough tough crime and gang infested multi cultural South London will hand in their weapons, mobiles and drugs. Then they will come home for tea in the tower blocks, and watch Grange Hill on the telly. It was a big hit back in the late 1970s. Taking it off our TV screens obviosuly created all this urban youth crime!
This therapy will work better than Ritolin, better than a lobotomy. All will be well. Maybe when I was younger, say about five years old, I might have believed that. Experience, inlcuing teaching in South London, has taught me otherwise. The comfortable overpaid upper middle class elite who infest and dominate elite media may see themselves as Writers of Wrongs, but are in fact a very big wrong that really needs putting right.

Resource Curse November 12th 2019
Many many years ago when I was teaching A Level Economics at Spencer Park Boys’ School in South London, I came across a vital statistic- and I don’t mean someone’s breast size.
The statistic was that the United States accounted for 6 % of the world’s population but greedily consumed 52 % of all the earth’s natural resources consumed every year.
The normal human brain needs cues to visualisation. So I told my class ‘Imagine a giant cake at the back of the room. There are 94 of us in this room and 6 people next door. So we take just under half the cake, then send the rest next door for the 6 people to enjoy. That is what we call equality.’
The boys got my message better than they did from all the hocus pocus economics graphs I ever drew for them on the blackboard.
So we come to the concept of ‘resource curse’. It aspires to explain why countries rich in resources have a slave popualtion propped up in mind by religious brainwashing, at the mercy of puppets put in place by Imperial powers like Britain and the United States.
Those people patronise and humoutr the Third World natives with open door immigration into another world of slavery in the so called diverse West.
Here they will be told how new laws will be passed to protect them from racism, in a promisinng new world. People are so fooled by this nonsense that they die in the back of fridge lorries, after paying people traffickers a fortune for the suffocation.
No surprise then that President Trump pronounces a new brave step for world democracy by forcing Bolivia’s new President to flee his country . The consequent riots don’t bother him or the CIA. This President Morales raised millions out of poverty. His country is rich in Lihtium, used to make batteries for modern domestic, personal and military devices. Morales thought the country would get richer if it made its own batteries for home and export.
The United States did not approve, so the CIA got to work. Juan Guado who thinks he is the real president of oil rich Venezuela trumpets , like Trump, the fresh wind of democracy blasting across his sub continent, Latin America. It is in fact more big gassing foul smelling fart than wind, coming from the bloated greedy capitalists, industrial and military mad men in the U.S, who are always backed by Britain.
Enough is never enough for these people, which is why Boris Johnson pledges his support for capitalist so called democrat protestors in Hong Kong,
Hong Kong is the back door for dirty money coming out of China. These people are so democratic they have revived the old English Royal practice of burning dissidents alive. Boris has promised them his country’s unwavering support. That is not democracy, it is demonocracy.
Times R A Changing November 11TH 2019
The Guardian’s top story is all about women withdrawing rape allegations before prosecution begins. The article, in pseudo liberal Guardian news paper slants this story to say or infer that any woman who alleges rape is automatically a poor innocent victim of male brutality. It can never be the case that she is a liar. When women are exposed as liars the media finds excuses for her or just doesn’t report it. This is because feminism is all about promoting women as abused victims who are so inherently good that they should be in charge of everything.
There is very little private space now, with the police allowed to enter a person’s home on a multitude of grounds. 80% of police call outs in Britain are to domestic incidents. It is the number one police priority. In these cases the woman will always get the benefit of the doubt, even though women are repsonsible for more acts of violence against children than men are. Meanwhile, evidence suggests that women are just as likely to attack men and to lie.
But the police are not interested and the man will always lose his home and family if the woman wants it. That is why fewer men get married and gay couples are increasingly common. The white birth rate is at an all time low. Women have never suffered from so many mental health issues , from so much mental illness as they chase fantasy careers in a land of child minders, broken homes, youth suicide and mental illness. People are actively encouraged to spy on and shop neighbours and people in the street or at work if they are offended by what they hear said. Robert Cook
Under Cover Posted November 10th 2019
Back in the good old Cold War days, the U.S.S.R had two obviously state run newspapers. They were Pravda and Isvestia, Truth and News. Russians were not stupid. The popular joke among them was that :there is no news in the truth or truth in the news.
People in the west feel more sophisticated . Their leaders patronise the east, along with the rest of the less ‘developed’ world. For some of us, however, the truth they are hiding is obvious. The measures they use to hide it are rather frighetning, especially because they repeatedly use the word democratic to justify and mystify the situation
Labour’s front bench spokseperson Dianne Abbot was quick to demand that residents of Grenfell Tower should have their immigration status protected after the devastating and tragic fire there.
For me, the mystery took an interesting new twist when the Rees Mogg, Tory Leader of the House of Commons was chastised by mainstream media for saying on a London radion station: ‘People should have used their common sense and ignored the fire brigade’s orders to remain inside the blazing building.’
Languid Rees ReesMogg is a soft target for the Euro remainer media and ‘leftyH politicians. He is an old Etonian with loads of money and an upper class accent. So what he said is being passed of as a kind of white supremicist utterance. he is, in many of their eyes unfit for high office. He has no right to an opinion unless it is the right one.
I would love a five pound note for every time my lack of ‘common sense’ has been questioned. One of my old science teachers used to say that there is no such thing as common sense. I agree up to a point, but most of us run away from an out of control fire.
So why were they told to stay. British officialdom exceeds normal levels of bullying when it has something to hide. One suspects Fire Chief Danny Cotton had her instructions regards evacuation. Otherwise ordering people to remain inside the block makes no sense, unless she has no idea how to deal with major situations- which I doubt.
So I wonder whether there were high level fears of what it would look like if a very large group of people who’s immigration status had to be kept secret, had amassed outside Grenfell Tower that fateful day, with mass media on site to see it all. There have been reports that human remains found after the blaze suggested dead resident numbers more in the region of 1300.
Britain’s elite are the masters of cover ups, corruption and hypocrisy. George Orwell’s ‘1984’ was based on his intimate knowledge of their character, ruthlessness and deceitfulness.
His ‘double speak’ was already in use, as he knew from his time with the wartime ‘Ministry of Information.’ Thus it may have been the case that the London Fire Service bosses thought they could contain the blaze without normal exacuation procedure because they did not realise the danger from external cladding. There had been so saftey inspection for 15 years. When I was a school safety officer responsible for a large school, I had the fire brigade inspect the school every year.
London is a sanctuary city. Liberal propoganda is in the hands of an out of touch overpaid elite who do not do hands on jobs. Thus they are impractical but experts in their fields, including telling the rest of us what to do, how to do it, what to say, what not to say- and what not to write. The truth does more than hurt. It can cause even bigger fIres than Grenfell Tower. They don’t want that to happen. Robert Cook
Not Very Good At It Posted November 9th 2019
Back in the late 1980s when I was a rising star of the local council, an old hand and many times mayor was talking about traffic and speeding problems. His day job was with the Ministry of Transport.
I recall him saying in his rather slow North Bucks drawl ‘You know there are many people who say they play a bit of golf but are not very good at it. You never hear anyone say “I do a bit of driving but I am not very good at it.”
Well, I would never say I am good at driving though I passed my car driving test first time. Took me two goes to pass my motorbike test. As for my HGV training, well I am not going to talk about that!
In my view driving tests are rather artificial. While still a school teacher back in the late 1980s, I decided to take a crack at the Class One HGV. I went around a few driving schools for free assessments- the economy was depressed and training schools were giving free assessments because they were desperate.
I settled on a one man outfit run by John, an ex RAF man and former driving test examiner. ‘I bought this lorry ( British call trucks lorries or wagons ) with my compensation” . He told me. “Compensation from what?” I asked.
John replied: ” I was giving a woman a driving test one day when she drove up a bank. The car took off. When it landed I got whiplash injuries. ”
” Surely they don’t send people like that for driving tests?” I asked. ” They do, and we had to pass 55% of them or the chief examiner wanted to know why”. ” That means if you get rubbish in the morning you have to pass anyone in the afternoon to catch up.” ” Yes” he said gloomily.
I had a very long day driving today. There were a lot of accidents to make me think. Just as I was approaching Bicester and my depot off the M40, I saw the air ambulance coming into land. Then I saw the long tailbacks. Lucky for me it was all on the other side. Survival on Britain’s crowded and poorly maintained road, has a lot to do with luck. Robert Cook
A Policeman’s Lot Posted November 8th 2019
A police constable has been charged with murder over the death of a former footballer whose heart failed after he was tasered and restrained.
The officer is only the fourth to be charged with murdering someone while on duty in more than 20 years. He appeared in court yesterday over the case of Dalian Atkinson, 48, alongside a female constable charged with assault causing actual bodily harm.
Mr Atkinson, who played for Aston Villa, Manchester City, Ipswich and Sheffield Wednesday, was outside his father’s house in Telford, Shropshire, on August 15, 2016, when police were called to concerns “for the safety of an individual”.
This is an extraordinary case. Because it involves a member of the black community. One treads on eggshells passing comment. However, the charge of murder is absurd. Murder requires proof of intent. The CPS has had two years to consider this case. One can only assume that they have gone for the major charge so that they can accept a reduction to manslaughter. In their view that will be what they want.
I am no fan of the pampered overpaid targtet obsessed out of touch command and control officers of the police or the politcians who refuse to reform the police.
Leaving that aside, only a professional criminal, anarchist, comfortable patonising bourgeoise or fool would think there is no need for the police.
Only a very unfiar person would expect the police to deal with ever more serious violent situations , and some very seriously disturbed people withput means of defence.
This case makes an interesting contrast to the Hillsborough situation or the brazen police assault on Ian Tomlison where Steven Harwood got off..
Frontline officers will need no advice from me to think twice about carrying or using tasers. They should also be wary of dealing with any potentially violent situation without defensive weapons, full back up and/or methods of safely restrainig persons without undue risk to anyone. Forearms officers will also need to learn from this situation if the accused iis convicted of manslaughter.
One might envisage a situation where an officer confronting a violent and or deranged person having to make an official request to that person for medical history and risk of death before daring to discharge any form of weapon, taser or other.
I am not arguing for the police to have free use of deadly violence, just rules that make clear what the officer can and cannot do before responding for the benefit of the public and police safety. Police are not trained medics or social workers. This was a tragic accident . Robert Cook
A Simple Mind Posted November 7th 2019
Having to study Marxism during my first year at university seemed rather boring. Images of Marx depicted a bearded old man from a long gone irrelevant past.
Age and experience have taught me that I was wrong to take such little interest, but I did read the books. At last I see the value of a Marxist perspective, though I see no way of verifying the nature of true consciousness.
However, it appears to me that Marx’s lumpenproletariat is now on a global scale. The elite’s enthusiasm for freedom of worshipping an imaginary God, in man’s image, is their way of rebooting the old Marxist ‘opium of the masses’.
The same goes for all the other diversity stuff. Careers and job opportunities before relationships and stable communities is just about generating a particular consciousness for the sake of the elite who get richer everyday,
The risk of their mentality leading to super power global conflict does not bother them. They will have the fallout shelters and fantasy homes in the sky to go to. Meanwhile even black people can fly the jet fighters and lead the armies into what Tennyson called ‘The Valley of Death’. That’s how equal it is in Britain.
So to my simple mind there is only one truth about diversity, the division between the haves and have nots. The reasons for mass migration into Europe are simple and explained elsewhere.
It has meant even more desperate people on British streets, with false consciousness and scapegoating the elite’s primary defence. Calling for more police is not a solution, it is an indicator of how bad and serious the problems are. Robert Cook

Black and White Posted November 5th 2019
My physics teacher taught us that we see things because they reflect or absorb light, which comes from the sun. Light is a spectrum of colours which is why we see rainbows after heavy rain followed by bright sunshine. The colours are red, orange, yellow, blue, indigo and violet. Objects can reflect anyone of these colours in different shades.
Black absorbs all the colours of the spectrum. White reflects them all. Black is not a good colour to wear in the heat. It is not a good colour for buidings in hot countries without central heating. Englands old thatched cottages were painted white because in the old days white paint or white wash was the only option. People in hot countries have adapted over thousands of years to heat, hence dark skins.
Why mention this? Because Briain is celebrating Black History Week and there are some interesting things mentioned in the media and serious stuff ignored.
Racism is the hot topic after feminism in this country. The little Somerset town of Bideford was christened ‘The White Town’ by nineteenth century writer Charles Kingsley. This is because all of its buildings are white. Now it must stop doing that because it is offensive to ‘black people’.
So our elite owned and run mass media is banging the drum for blacks and blaming white working class bigots for all the problems- white women are excused because we are supposed to know that white men bully them into submission.
It is an unplesant truth that there is a poorly educated white underclass, hard hit by economic change, unemployed or unemployable- many homeless because the rich and governments have pushed property prices out of reach of the masses.
The elite do not want to reduce a lifestyle paid for by the working class. There is a myth that ‘we are all working class now.’ In fact anyone below middle middle class is in danger of being dragged into the quaint English gutter- or ditch in Boris Johnson’s case.
It is interesting that the elite and their media are now doing their re write of history using the lower white order as scapegoats. They don’t want to have that order challenged so we have Channel 4 ( Junior BBC ) with an advert fronted by little black children in army Generals Uniform, fighter pilot role, judge and all the other top uniforms right up to the Queen.
How about being really radical and abolishing the monarchy ? We have the nearly black princess who is doing her best to finish of Princess Diana’s job of exposing them for what they are -another story for another day. What do Britain’s fighter pilots do? Do they fight for good, democracy or just to ensure the Western Elite get the oil etc?
That is the face of liberal England, run by the same ruthless disingenous white patronising mickey taking pampered protected elite. Fantasy blacks growing up to fill the key roles- no matter how much light their skin absorbs does not alter the fact that Britain is institutionally corrupt in business, politics, finance and police. There is no evidence that black leaders in Africa have improved on colonial days, or have a more caring attitude to their fellow blacks.
There is no evidence that postive discrimination makes for better outcomes. It certainly won’t deal with the rot and corruption at the heart of this very nasty badly run country- which by Boris Johnson’s own admission can only be controlled by more police- with sepcific personality traits- and intrusion into our private space. Black history week is an establishment programme promoted in their interest. Robert Cook
Boeing Boeing Gone Posted November 5th 2019
The Boeing Aircraft Company was started almost by accident by William E Boeing- see engineering page for company history. This was because when Boeing ordered spare parts for his damaged Martin aircraft he realsied he could build one of his own design in his company’s boat yard. By the end of World War Two Boeing was a mainstay of the infamous U.S Industrial Military complex.
Ground breaking jet airliner designs like the 707, 747 and 737 revolutionalsed air travel for business and leisure. But two new accidents have seriously damaged this ever rising star player in world avaiation.
Cutting corners is always tempting in the world of work and business. Sometimes it can lead to better practices, but all two often disaster strikes- though it is said ‘you cannot make omlettes without breaking eggs.
So Boeing cut corners to beat Airbus to the post with a more environmentally friendly airliner – in reality no jet liner can be deemed environmentally friendly. But as with mobile phones, the masses and their leaders have forgotten that there was a time before mass air travel, making Greta a bit of a joke.
So with two fatal crashes of its 737 Max 8 , killing 376 people, Boeing is in the dock.. The airliner remains grounded worldwide. The Federal Aviation Administration is under scrutiny for its certification process. Boeing virtually certificated itself because it is so much part of the U.S establishment. It is all reminiscent of aeronautical engineer and part time Neville Shute Conway’s old novel on the subject.
Pilots have also been blamed, but the bulk of a recent report puts most of the responsibility on Boeing and its flawed design. It is wrong to call it flawed because the flaws were deliberately built in.
It took a while and lots of injury and accident before anything approaching safe controllable powered flight was acheived in 1903. After that progress was exponential. The theory put into practice was that a heavier than air machine can only fly on a similar principle to metal boats floating. They must have buoyancy from the air below them.
This buoyancy is achieved by the air being forced to flow faster over the top of the wings and tail plane than it does underneath. This means there is a bigger mass of air molecules under the wing than above it.
The cross sectional profile of the wing and what is called the diahedral angle where the two wings join the fuesalage, along with the weight and speed of the airplane are crucial to the process we call flying. It is a precise issue of engineering.
But the Boeing designers wanted to break these rules to accommodate two much larger engines on the wings of the original Boeing 737 design. The object of the exercise was to save fuel, so cutting exhaust pollution.
Conevntional aircraft controls vary angles of hinged flaps called ailerons and trim tabs on wings, tailplane and rudder. Until Airbus broke the rules with what was called remote ‘fly by wire’ controls in the 1970s, the controls were hydraulic and manually operated with little use of computers.
The first Airbus display at the Paris Airshow led to a fatal crash. That did not stop designers working on improvements to the computer systems. Nowadays passengers like me have flown thousands of miles on Airbus products.
Boeing hope to resolve the 737 Max 8 problems and reassure a diffident public. The problem, however, for them is more complex than making sure the compuer system works. They seem to be asking the computer software to do the impossible. The air flows and weather patterns encountered by aircraft in different parts of the world and altitudes is not homogenous, even head on. Traditionally the pilots could easily overide computers to trim the plane.
Not so with the 737 Max 8 which is actually, because of the large engines and their position is nose heavy. Boeing was arrogant to think they could produce quick reacting software to cope with quick changing weather variations.
So far ex military pilots report saving their 737 Max 8s from disaster. That seems to be because they are the best and were taught to actually fly under stress, rather different in character and skill from the new generation of computer nerds who are at the controls of most airliners today.
Easterly Wind Posted November 5th 2019
You do not have to be tall to be a dictator. Vladimir Putin, who I think is a force for stability, is 5′ 6″. Emanuel Macron is average at 5′ 8″. No good person in the west would call Macron a dictator, but he certainly wants his own way in Europe and beyond.
Macron and other EU leaders have repeatedly expressed concern over the gradual breakdown of the rule of law in Turkey after a failed coup in 2016 prompted a brutal crackdown on dissent
Macron condemned Erdogan’s government’s human rights record in a speech to the Council of Europe. He said that the “decline of the rule of law” in Turkey “had to be the subject of all our vigilance”.
Macron and his Anglo U.S cronieshave been busy for years destabilising Syria on the pretence of bringing that wonderful concept ‘western style democracy’ .
At last the U.S admit it is the oil they want and they are taking and exporting it. Thus it is unbelievable that Macron attacks Erdogan, under cover of the human rights issues that never bothered the west before. This is because they have moved into Syria as the U.S were starting to pull out.
We live in very interesting times. Britain, the U.S and the EU created a massive movement of Muslims into Europe because of their wars and need for Muslim cheap labour in post industrial times. They have added religious tolerance and freedom of worship to their divide and rule mantra.
When Gorbochov collapsed the USSR, reunification of Germany was celebrated. But like the rest of Eastern Europe, those places were behind the times with an idealsied view of the west.
Unfortunately for Western leaders like Macron and the puppets they have tried implanting to lead former Soviet states, those countries want to keep their national identity whilst benefitting from membership of Europe.
Sadly for them, and in spite of their superior education, they do not see the simple truth. They are wanted in Europe for their countries’ resources and for cheap labour- the latter is why free movement is so important.
From my early 1960s years watching our old black and white TV in the corner of a front room that was only a few feet from a busy main road to London, I watched BBC’s first satire show. It was called ‘ That Was The Week That Was’. It thrived by taking pot shots at the stuffy old Tory Government along with all of Britain’s vile hypocrisy.
Over the years the rising stars of that programme, likeVicar’s son and Cambridge graduate David Frost grew rich. They became a part of an adapted British Establishment which laughed with them rather than reform. Frost was knighted.
That pretentious patronising BBC elite are their children and grandchildren. These people and the State Broadcater BBC which pays them very well, declared satire dead when Tony Balir and his repressive government of lawyers came to power.
The so called Brexit Confusion is not confusion. It is the political wing of this nasty elite trying to come up with a ‘deal’ that will confuse the ignorant masses into thinking they got to leave the EU.
Macron and the rest of the Euro elite have to persuade Eastern Europe that they must get into line. I heard a whole progarmme on BBC Radio Four, where Oxbridge educated public school girls were trying to stir up a feminist movement in Poland.
BBC World Service, which has links with MI6, have had a big budget increase under May’s government, extending their multi lingual services to even more countries. I listen to it regularly on my very early morning truck driving shifts. It is pure propoganda, the British elite doing its best to divide and rule so that they and their kind can go on safely with their easy munificent lifestyles.
Going back to an earlier point, it remains to be seen whether the bitter winds from Eastern Europe will be quelled by clouds and jets of hot air from Macron and his kind. Robert Cook
England Out Of Touch November 3rd 2019
Sport is about ego and money. England’s rugby players believed the hype that they had the rugby world championship in the bag. Had it been a final with Wales they would still have lost. Wales would certainly have had more chance of beating South Africa, as their Six Nations performance attests.
England gave up way before the end because their stupid little patronising plan to defeat the Springbox was not working. Their appalling churlish behaviour refusing to wear the runners up medal is a metaphor for what this horrible little elite divided country has become. Its champions and elites can never admit being wrong and or misguided. England played like arrogant idiots but think they should still have won. Rule Brittania etc.
Russia Threat To British Democracy November 3rd 2019
Former Attorney General Dominic Grieve demands release of a report by his intelligence and security committee saying Russia has interfered in elections of other countries and will interfere again in Britain’s general election. He has called the Prime Minister a liar in the face of Russia’s threat to ‘our democracy.’
Britain is unique in Europe, cut off from the mainland by two rivers eroding their catchment area to create the English Channel. Two major invasions, the Romans and Normans left massive cultural marks. The legacy of Norman rule is still redolent, partuclarly in our class conscious deference divide and rule class/legal system.
In this way, the British elite avoided the turmoil of social unrest and revolution that plagued the continent during the nineteenth century. Thus they had the advantage when it came to building a global empire, leading them into two World Wars defending it at the cost of millions of working class soldiers.
Since those famously dark and heroic days Britain’s ruling class have churned out the myth that Britain won the war against Nazism single handed for high motives, led by the great Churchill ( who even had a tank with a pea shooter gun named after him – see ‘The Vauxhall Story by Robert Cook ). Russia, of course played no serious part. Nor did Britain sell its East European allies down the river afterwards.
Then comes the great myth that the EU has stopped serious war- at a time when whole sectors of the globe are on fire as a result of Anglo U.S Imperialism, greed. lies and hypocrisy- backed up by France.
So from the elite perspective, men like Grieve and their comfortable constituents want regime change in Russia, with either remianing in Europe or Brexit in name only- BRINO. Disbanding the USSR was not enough. Russian oligrarchs and traitors have been welcomed to Britain, but this is not enough.
President Trump is also in the sights of the self appointed money grabbing power mad moralists who want to blame Russia for anything and everything. That is why Jullian Assange has to be kept locked up. He has been called a Russian agent and traitor by the Anglo U.S elite.
Officially Assange was just another Russian puppet out to undermine Anglo British dirty tricks for the sake of ‘democracy’ in the Middle East.
According to Grieve, the British masses are so stupid that Russia can just plug in to their brains to swing the election. So, if that is true, who do they want to win and why?
I am not getting the Russian doom ray messages in my head, so I need to see the report so I can do my best to help save this wonderful British, envy of the world, freedom loving British style, multi cultural representative democracy. See full report on Internatioanl News Page.

Manifestos and Bold ( maybe better to say bald ) promises. October 31st 2019
I am writing from Speaker John Bercow’s constituency. Thank God this money grabber and most expensive public servant is leaving. ITV have leaked a rumour that he wanted a million pounds to appear on Celebrity Jungle.
Their budget didn’t stretch so the tiny man turned down another opportunity to play the role of performing monkey, a role he played so well for the likes of SNP Commons leader Ian Blackford and other remoaners.
On the plus side of the Brexit con taking so long, Parliament has had less time to pass more laws, something it loves doing and blaming Europe for instead. Sombreros and Halloween blackfacing is being banished by the PC elite consensus because they are racist, offensive and divisive to minorities.
The ( lack of ) government is also being pressed to bring new style speed cameras into force. These cameras have been a big success in Australia. Pressure groups, led by the police, argue that they will stop people taking photographs with their mobile phones- something else that will soon be outlawed.
The key phrase is that they are designed to spot suspicious in car movements, using a dedicated sophisticated algorithm. This is just more of the police state in my view. Britain is already the most watched country in the world.
Now look closely at the picture above. It is of the Rolls Royce BMW dealer. Posh expensive personal transport vehicles are as common as luxurious secure gated mansions in the Home Counties. This dealership is close to the Queen’s much loved and most symbolic castle at Windsor.
Imagine the locals horror at the not so poor Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn becoming Prime Minister. Why not you may ask? Well, he might be out to block a no deal Brexit but he is also worrying them with his talk of war on elites and tax evaders. Of course he could never deliver on this promise, but the super rich are easily frightened. High taxes are only for the poor.
The wealth of the rich comes off the backs of the workers. So far feeding them on and dividing them with the destructive sex war has held them at bay. But there are all those nasty protestors from real Europe to Latin America. Police and laws are needed to protect the elites. They don’t trust that rich fool Boris Johnson either so more drastic action is now needed.
Corbyn in Revolution Mode October 31st 2019
I gave up my aspirations to be a serious politician years ago. As a fairly young member of my local council I used to believe that I could make a difference, believed my own impassioned and rather melodramatic offerings to the council chamber.
It was during the selection process to become a parliamentary candidate that I realised my rather academic outlook rendered me unsuitable. On a grander scale, Labour Leader Michael Foot had the same weakness. There was a joke about him in the early 1980s. It was that he ‘was one foot that would not make a ruler.’
Corbyn was, however, treated with respect by BBC reporters mindful of their elite status and needing to sound like they were with Jeremy Corbyn and all the underdogs who are more relics of the Edwardian Age than the 1970s.
This is going to be an interersting General Election all fired up by Brexit. Boris’s Tories will struggle to win seats in Scotland and are in big danger of the Brexit Part splitting the English vote if they do not offer a deal for no deal. Blair followed the Thatcher legacy of alienating Scotland, cementing the rise of Jimmy Clitheroe look alike Nicola Sturgeon and her SNP.
Ultimately it is going to be quite a little battle between in fighters and vested interests. At this moment it is difficult to see a majority government emerging in our outdated first past the post system.
Meantime no attention is being paid to the appalling mess that Europe is in, and the problems the British elite have helped, if not insisted, that it dodged for at least a decade.
Our elite want to remain in the EU Customs Union without an official say in how it makes and operates the rules- then it can’t be blamed, but the British public will be blamed for voting leave.
Politics is easy to understand if, like me, you are or were a maths teacher. But one needs something rather nasty about oneself to actually be a functioning politician. This makes all those fine lady politicians so amusing when they complain about the terrible language used in so called debate. They don’t seem to realise that what is said in the chamber does not really matter. It is all the conspiracies, back room and top restaurant talk that counts.
Royal Jelly October 30th 2019
Since the day Charles married Lady Dianna Spencer the elite owned and elite dominated mainstream media has been about melting and reshaping the monolithic stuffy rigid British monarchy into something sweet- sort of Royal Jelly. Once remoulded it can reset as an iconic influence for another 1000 years.
As a teacher and lecturer for many years, I know just how ignorant people are kept about the past. The way history is taught up to degree level is like teaching physics without maths. There is no accounting for where history’s energy for change and solidification comes from or how to measure it That is why the media are able to pass off the Brexit situation as a crisis of confusion. The elite are not confused. They and their media cronies are out to confuse the masses.
And so we have the drivel about Princess Meghan Markle who is as white as she is black, as rich as the masses are poor. On the day she married Harry, the rough sleepers on the streets outside Windsor Castle were moved on because they were an affront to the dignity of Royal pomp and circumstance. Only drooling slavish flag wavers were allowed to watch what should be an irrelevance in a logical world not driven by the maths of power, greed, delusion, deference and status.
Now I hear that 71 British female MPs have signed a letter supporting Prince Harry’s wife Meghan’s campaign to be protected from media criticism. Apparently she doesn’t fit in because she is black. It has nothing to do with her pugnacious approach to her new public life or hypcrisy. She is being portrayed as another female victim like Princess Dianna.
Princess Dianna is another story. A naive girl from a wealthy but cold home background, she gave her heart to lost causes like landmines and AIDS. In doing so she created powerful enemies, particularly when she exposed the future king as an adulterer.
Her death remains a mystery to many. The play ‘Sex Lies and Princess Dianna’ which I saw in the West End, was alarming and slammed by establishment theatre critic Charles Douglas Home. He and others killed it off .
Meghan is not in Dianna’s league. The latter turned a lot of us old Royalists towards republicanism. To liken Meghan to Princess Dianna is an insult to the latter’s memory but typical of the superficial upper middle class folk who dominate mainstream media. Their publications are patronising, aimed at ignorant gossip orientated simple folk. Robert Cook
Towering Stupidity October 30th 2019
London Fire Brigade has been slammed by the official report into the Grenfell fire tragedy. The brigade’s boss refuses to quit before next year, when she will retire at the age of 50, with a £2 miilion pension package at public expense.
Fire boss Dany Cotton is unrepentant, saying she would do it all the same way again- rather reminiscent of Tony Blair’s words about setting fire to the Middle East. then getting the peace envoy’s job.
The fire brigade has been accused of systematic failures. Cotton deviated from the usual practice of evacuating the tower when the fire had not long started, not anticipating the way fires spread once neighbouring sections of buildings reach a critical temperature. The Bradford City football ground fire was another example of this idiocy in 1988.
At least 79 people died in the 2017 blaze, possibly more. Labour’s Dianne Abbott successfully blocked revelation of Grenfell resident’s immigration status as many were representative of minorities in London where homelessness abounds alongside the super rich.
We live in what are interesting times, when public figures consistently deny reponsibility, like recruits like and positive discrimination rules. Cressida Dick is another not so shining example, walking into the top London Police job and committing another massive blunder, from which her and her underlings will ‘learn lessons’. This tends to mean how not to get caught out again. Robert Cook
New World Disorder October 30th 2019
George Bush Senior made smug elitist speeches after the first Gulf War in 1991. His message was that this was the beginning of a ‘new world order.’ The Bush family are one of the U.S’s richest, wealth deriving from oil.
The ‘Obsever ‘ newspaper published a full page article after that British backed war, called ; The Leaked Pentagon Papers. These papers explained how the Iraqi Ambassador went to the Pentagon asking what they would do if his country invaded Kuwait. He was told ‘nothing.’
Sadam Hussein, who had fought a seven year proxy war against Iran, for the U.S took this as a green light to annex Kuwait. The U.S and their aged parent Britain wasted no time going to war with Iraq. using Saudi Arabia as a launch pad. Hussein had been flooding the world oil markets with cheap oil to rebuild his war damaged country.
The U.S and other oil producing countries did not like this. Bush had been backed by U.S oil billionaires and needed an oil crisis to re inflate prices. The Western Media portrayed Kuwait as a violated defenceless democracy rather than the nasty little dictatorship western lackey it actually was and still is.
I was taught that humans, like all animals, need food, clothing and shelter, then the opportunity and security for reproduction. The difficulty is that a very small minority are taking most of the resources and benefits from advancing technology. Across the world we see poverty, hardship, religious bigotry/escapism, alcoholism, drug addiction, crime violence, people/ smuggling and war.
Poor people see how rich people live, want the same and blame other poor people, on the basis of gender and/or religion if they can’t get it. They get into the back of trucks run by people smugglers in search of the promised land. Rich and powerful in Britain wring their hands talking and crying about a tragedy their system promotes. In the words of the old English folk song, ‘It’s the rich what gets the pleasure, it’s the poor what gets the blame.’
The British and global elite have revived the war against the racism which is rising because of their policies. They need distractions. Promoting LGBTQ and the right to worship God in anyway you like, is another diversion.
Laws against hate speech makes the elite look good. They divide, rule, generate hate and conflict, prop up or change regimes for the benefit of the new world disorder. Life is ultimately very simple. Like the current fires in California and across the world, pile up the combustible material and set it alight. The masses do not matter to the elite, except for voting fodder in fake democracies, covered by fake media, and as cheap labour.
Hard Times- or not? October 28th 2019
My readers know of my love hate relationship with BBC Radio Four, especially ‘Woman’s Hour.’ However, leaving aside its feminazism, it covers interesting stuff sometimes.
Today it dealt with a dramatic rise in young people seeking sex therapy over the last 12 months, from 1400 to 4.500. Obviously one wonders why?
Inevitably it is all the young man’s fault, according to Woman’s Hour and its experts. He has watched too much pornography, so when he meets a real human female she is not exciting enough. Worse than that he may objectify her and try to treat her like a porn actress.
It was admitted in the programme that females watch porn too, but only so as to keep up with the blokes and their expectations. It was said that both genders have issues with their bodies. Vaginismus and erectile dysfunction are key issues. This despite sex and gender education starting at nursery!
Sexual hypocrisy is an ancient tome. Writer Ben Elton lampooned the esteemed 17th century diarist Samuel Pepys in his book ‘Identity Crisis.’ This is an excellent read, making clear that Pepys abused his high postition to abuse females from the lower orders. Many babies were the result. Has anything really changed – Prince Andrew and Epstein spring to mind today.
Nature struggles with huiman interference. It wants to be binary. Our religious moral code argues that God made us in his own image, when in truth humans made God in their own image.
If humans cannot sexually excite one another in a nice caring way, then there is a big problem for the future. Feminism goes on about empowering women and positive discrimination. Ethnic minority males escape opprobrium because they are still officially part of the underclass – their misery and lack of opportunity is the white man’s fault not their own.
With divorce at record levels and absent fathers, is it any wonder that young white males are poisoned by internet porn while mum is finding herself with her career , new boy or girl friends. I think we have a sexual revolution which is certainly not pretty nor sensible. Robert Cook
Trucking It Up October 27th 2019
Trucks, or lorries as we used to call them, have gotten a lot bigger in my lifetime. They have also become faster and technically easier to drive. Most new ones have automatic gears and power steering, really easing the work load.
For all of little Greta’s adult led rantings about the environment, she shows no awareness of political realities. Blaming the little people achieves nothing other than making it look as if the young are being consulted. They are just being conned.
My generation of anti war protestors are now supporters of caranage in the Middle East, virtue signalling and agonising over the deaths of 39 would be illegal immigrants into the U.K. These Chinese people were ‘looking for a better life when they ended up dead in the back of a fridge lorry in Essex.
While on the road yesterday, I listened to the smug self righteous carefully chosen panel members on BBC’s ‘Any Questions.’ They were speaking from Portsmouth – Britain’s only island city. Facing the question of Would the British Public have been so upset if these economic migrants had not died?
The answers were smug self satisfied and long winded. The word ‘tragedy’ was used a lot. The obvious answer to that pompous question is that if they had not died we would not know they were here.
A seconday question was ‘How do we stop this happening again?’ The answer is simple. Either create tougher border controls with powers to repatriate or make a public announcement to the world that anyone can come to this country for a better life, regardless of age, personal history, qualifications, skills or numbers. There is no other answer. Robert Cook
War Of The Words October 24th 2019
I am open minded about Brexit. All sides of the argument are very clear to me. However, I find the intrusion of children’s book publisher Ladybird into the melee rather disconcerting.
As I have explained elsewhere on this site, I was punished during my teaching career for raising environmental concerns about nuclear power. I was accused of politicising by Bucks Education Chiefs.
So why is it OK for a children’s book to take such a negative and misleading line against Brexit, as we see below.? Robert Cook
Numbers Posted October 24th 2019
As I have said many times, everything comes down to numbers, with nature aspiring to the binary. Of course there is the unseeable currently unknown world of dark or anti matter. So it follows that some forces are hidden.
Focusing on what we believe is known, binary has to be the working model for humanity and the whole world with infinity beyond. When I taught maths I ridiculed teaching about binary numbers without explaining the conetxt or uses. We lose a lot of inquiring minds because we seem to teach stuff to tests.
When scientists decided it would be possible to spilt atoms they worked at getting the job done. The resulting nuclear fission has held countries to ransom as well as providing controlled fission and heat. Humans are led by vainglorious bullies and other politcal types. These people are in it for power, money and pleasure.
Encouraging a religious multi faith revival in the name of protecting Muslims who have been divided and ruled by the elite for many decades, is about controlled division.
Looking across the diverse world of humanity, that control is waning. The heat is rising. There have been world wars before and will be again- assuming you do not think we have one already. The latest news is Kurds and Turkish migrants fighting each other on the streets of Berlin.
Like football, war is ultimately binary and their are different leagues. Human savagery knows no age, gender or ethnicity. Like the earth’s crust relative to the rest,civilisation is wafer thin holding back the magma, potential earthquakes and volcanoes. Religion won’t stop it, rather it will make matters worse.
Democratic or Police State ? Posted October 24th 2019
When Disareli extended Britain’s franchise to include skilled male artisans in 1867, his colleague Robert Lowe commented : ‘We must now set about educating our masters.’ The first state education act followed three years later. It was based on the limited idea of teaching the ‘Three Rs’, namely: Reading ‘Riting and ‘Rithmatic.’ In the same year Bismarck hmiliated Germany in the Franco Prussian War to complete the unification of all German States, his Prussia replacing Austria as their leader.
Bismarck had a more inclusive and exciting version of education, but they ended up fighting the whole world twice over. Defeat was ienveitable but the EU came to rescue their ambitions. Their leader Angela Merkel has her own idea of democracy which includes an open door to migrants from war zones.
Those war zones are primarily due to Anglo- U.S illgeal wars destabilising the Middle East, right up to the North African frontier. British people at the bottom do not understand what has happened to them and why. Voting leave in the EU refrendum seemed like a way to better things, just as it did to the 39 dead illegal immigrants found in the back of a juggernaut in Essex yesterday.
Briatin is divided between left wing comfortable people, many rampant liberals and the long suffering poorly educated masses. That underclass- lumpenproletariat as Marx called it- hear the word democracy bandied about by our elite media folk. They are beginning to realise their views do not count. They must listen to their betters who represent them at home and abroad. Right wing extermism should come as no surprise, adding to Islamic outrage and ever more excuses for an expanding police force to spy on us rather than deal with conventional crime.
The word used to describe Britain’s political system has changed. A new word is added. It is a Representative Democracy. It has been a PR process of oppression, just like in Orwell’s ‘Animal Farm’ where the slogan over the pig stye changes from ‘All animals are equal’ to ‘All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others.’ Robert Cook October 24th 2019
From Nuclear War Fears to the New Clear War about sex October 20th 2019
Back in the 1980s, when my sons were young, I used to worry about nuclear power stations blowing up and the arms race. The dangers of a sex war had not occured to me.
Raised from the age of 11 by my mother, with my great aunt next door and my dominant very clever older sister, it never occured to me that females were inferior, though the class structure in town made me aware of my family’s social inferiority.
Social mobility was visualised as the way forward for Britain in the post war age. Labour got elected for its egalitarian promises in 1945, to the chagrin of patronising heavy drinking chain cigar smoking Winston Churchill. Churchill actually believed his bombstic words had won the war for them, freeing them single handedly from the Nazi terror.
There are people older than me who still believe that. I grew up with agnostic parents. Their early teachings included doubts about politicans.
Politicians push for laws to suit themselves. Social mobility has been in decline since Thatcher came to power in the 1970s. Comprehensive Schools and exams for all or sack the teacher for failing to help kids cheat the pathetic system, were already doing their bit to block able working class kids before paranoid Thatcher determined to have a national limiting mind numbing curriculum for all schools except the posh private ones.
An alternative route out of poverty, post war, was to excel at football. Brains in your feet could earn a man millions by the end of the 1970s. Paul Gascoigne ‘Gazza’ proved that point. But as a hotel porter famously asked another British star footballer, ‘What went wrong?’
Gazza had a hard start in the depressed north east of England. On the way up, he left his young sweetheart for worldly divorced Cheryl. The rest of that story is history. Rows with her turned into domestic abuse stories in the Daily Mirror. Gazza’s drinking ran out of control, his career declined.
So 18 months ago he kissed who he called ‘a fat lass’ on the lips, on a train , while visibly drunk. A passenger told the girl she had been sexually assaulted and police tracked Gazza to an hotel. He was charged with sex assault and battery. When defending himself in court, the prosecutor called Gascoigne a liar.
The former England start, Gazza, 52, claimed he was comforting the woman who had been the victim of verbal abuse. He kissed her to boost her confidence. Mimicking his famous tears photo while helping England, he wept as he was cleared.
Since there is no doubt he kissed her, was this not unwanted and strange therapy. Gazza should consider himself very lucky to have got off in this age of hyper sensitivity to those we used to call the fairer, even weaker sex. It cannot be the case that accosting strangers and kissing them is alright. Gazza is out of touch.
The iconic image of a sailor in New York kissing a stranger on VJ day, led to him being tracked down in his eighties and accused of a sex offence. Men should recognise the danger of being over familiar with women and not presume to offer any kind of comfort unless they ask for it in writing, signed by official witnesses.
This kissing took place in a public space. More and more cameras and police rights to enter your home for spurious reassons and ‘perceptions’ means men do not really have any private spaces. They need to grow up and learn this- so does Gazza. There is a NEW CLEAR WAR NOW.

Had my say, had my day October 20th 2019
I have run out of things to say about Brexit, but worry not, mainstream media will never stop coming up with new phrases and cliches to describe what is going on regards Brexit.
Unusually for Theresa May, she came straight to the point yesterday. Urging the House of Commins to back a Brexit ‘deal’ only slightly worse than her own. Thus, she said in exasperated tones: ‘The British people will be asking whether we were being honest when we offered them a vote on whether or not to leave the EU.’
There is a great deal of arrogance about the British ruling elite and a refusal to confront the reasons why a majority voted to leave.
In my time I have endured many lectures, read many biographies and other books on politics and inflicted my lectures on others in my writing and teaching roles. I have also lived a very long time, travelled a bit, met and talked to many people.
Having spent some years as a senior member of my local council, I was put forward for selection as a Lib Dem Parlaimentary candidate. I started out at the bottom. Thanks to the corrupt police lies about me and feminist law bias, I am back at the bottom again. My life has been an interesting journey. unlike most poeple in British politics and media, my persepctive is not simply theoretical and judgemental,
The simple truth about Brexit is that it was not meant to happen. Cameron wanted the vote as a mass display of support for a corrupt gravy train Europe which he and his government were going to do nothing to reform. Old Etonian Cameron meant to use an expected ‘yes’ vote to take the U.K further into the EU, with membership of the Euro and greater participation into its police state practices of which his elite are so fond because they fear threats from the bottom- from the slave wage masses. These people are anything but diverse, but they call diverse because that is ‘divide and rule.’
Divide and rule ought to be more correctly called ‘divide and fool.’ All this repeated talk about a ‘deal’ is about fooling and mystifying people. Posh media folk patronise and keep saying the same stuff, but never the truth. A good deal is not possible. Barnier said at the outset: ‘Britain cannot have its cake and eat it.’ It cannot be in the Customs Union, with all of its rules, and outside at ther same time.
Because of this Northern Ireland and its relationship with the South is an intractable problem. So the strategy is to stall until people lose interest and the con can be completed- remaining as BRINO with no further peoples’ influence on how Europe works, just diktas.
When the worst happens, the media will tell us that was what we voted for. Protest in a meaningful way and the ever expanding U.K police force will crack your head open if need be. Remember what they did to Ian Tomlinson and he was just walking home from work.

The Curse it is Cast October 19th 2018
I am writing this editorial just before going out into the cold dark early morning at 1.30 am to drive a truck for many miles and all day long. For me and many others life is hard and often dangerous. When the elite, protected by police and secure buildings- be they office or home- judge the masses they show just how out of touch they are.
That is why they are getting so much wrong as they cling to elite privileges and fight change that does not suit them. They decide what is right or wrong, bringing back nonsense about religion and God just like the tyrants of old. That is why today’s Brexit debate will be very entertaining as New Labour / Opposition and female MPs will prioritise virtue signalling
So we see riots and protests across Europe, including the ludicrous Extinction Rebellion folk who haven’t a clue what the real problems are- backed by super stars who think they are exceptions to any eco rules.
Riots and rebellions seem to be everywhere, from Latin America to Hong Kong and across Europe. All we hear from Western elites is how bad these rioters are. There is a common factor to all of it, money and the power it gives the ruling classes. Overpopulation is one of the key issues that it is deemed racist to mention.
There is no doubt that the arrogance of so called leadership in Britain and Europe caused the Brexit Crisis because the EU does not work for ordinary people. Brexit signals danger to the elite because other Euro nations are uneasy to say the least. It costs a lot of money to keep the masses in order and the elite safe in their palaces, offices and mansions.
The fall out from U.S, British and French post colonial wars has released a mass immigration issue that can not be smoothed over by the slogan of diversity. In the words of Bob Dylan, ‘The line it is drwan, the curse it is cast, the slow one now will later be fast, as the present now will later be past, for the times they are a changin’ ‘

The Right to Die October 17th 2019
This poor girl has been looking for help for the last two years. Ordinary impressionable men and women of the Western world are being driven mad by elite propoganda, and very nasty doctors, about diversity and non binary is good nonsense. For most people nature is binary.
Normal Women want husbands and children without being policed by morons in blue uniforms, feminists, and so called health experts- Psychiatrists are whores as R,D Laing said they were. They prop up our hypocritical excuse for a society / democacy.. These dreadful patronising people are medicalisisng peoples’ unhappiness.
As for the God squad, they should keep their bigotry to themselves. I and many others, claim the right not to worship this 3000 year old political bull-hit. Society has driven this girl mad, labelled her, making her life even more intolerable. God doesn’t care what happens to this girl, nor does society. So she should get what she wants, not life in ‘the cuckoos nest’. Robert Cook
For more on this subject see the Psychology page- but note paranoid personality is diagnosed as a medical condition, i.e psychiatric, not psychological. That means the system people see it as a brain structure and hormone issue. It is far easier to blind people with science and justify powerful medication that way.
Hate Speech October 16th 2019
Many years ago, whilst lecturing in Sociology at Aylesbury College of Further Education, I recommened students read a book called ‘Poverty the Forgotten Englishman.’
Material and Educational/Cultural poverty usually go hand in hand. Meally mouthed and smug British Parlaimentarians care not for the British underclass. They talk jargon and with virtue signalling cliches.
Yesterday the murdered MP Jo Cox’s sister was talking to a House of Commons Select Committe about the tragedy and the consensus was harsher punishments with more vigilance to protect vulnerable MPs. Questions why MPs are held in such contempt are never asked.
If memory serves me correctly, former Oxfam Charity worker Jo Cox’s maiden speech focused on the need to help more people in Africa. Correct me if I am wrong, but one of her northern constituents asked her for help.
He was being forced to leave his council house to make way for a migrant family. This was painful for him because he had lived there with his mother all of his life, until she died. Ms Cox would not help him so he made a gun and shot here.
I am not suggesting that it is alright to shoot an MP because they won’t help you. If I thought like that I would have shot John Bercow by now! But, as I say, poverty is material and educational. More and more people feel helpless. MPs are, these days, boastfull and generally no help to their constituents.
Their patronising display of contempt for the public over Brexit has made them feel vulnerable, hence they want more legal and police protection. In all my lfe and studies of politics, I have never seen such a shameless self centred display from our overpaid politicians. To speak against this elite is to risk falling foul of their hate speech laws and a long nasty jail sentence. Robert Cook
Freedom and Power October 15th 2019
After my freedom fighting ( were the British elite and their minions fighting for or against freedom at that time? Discuss ) father was wounded at Dunkirk in 1940, he had to transfer to the Military Police or leave the service he had grown used to. The more we do something the stronger and bigger the brain pathway we develop. So, in 1945 he left the army, but the army never left him. He got used to taking orders and trusting his ‘superiors.’
He died aged 41 because he trusted his betters and worked like a slave for a pittance. I was 11 at the time and accustomed to material poverty during his two year terminal illness and our lack of money.
During the short time I knew him, I learned a lot about woodwork, electronics and how engines worked. I came to know about lorries, or trucks as we call them in immitation of the U.S culture this country started mimicking and kow towing to during World War Two.
Like many children I had a tendency to question and break rules. As a tired out working class father with only a rule book set in his head from army days, he feared for my future. When I argued about bedtime his stock phrase was ‘You are a liberty taker.’ As Elton John observed in his memoir ‘Me’, those were the days- the 1950s- when parents instilled discipline via a good beating.
My parents were what used to be called cockneys from poor and harsh backgrounds. My maternal grandmother died when her only daughter was two weeks old- in 1924. My father’s favourite verbal insult was to call me a country bumpkin because I was the only member of my family to be born in Buckinghamshire. So I was brought up feeling like an outsider alongside my spolied and very clever cockney sister. All through Primary school teachers, who had had the delight of teaching this gifted girl, reminded me how I lacked her gifts.
This brief extract from my early life may explain why, although I spent many years working as an authority figure, I never liked or trusted the authorities. Had I trusted myself I probably would never worked amongst them in the first place.
The basic problem with aithorities- which we obviously need- is that they breed corruption fed by the reality that like recruits like. As a young man I dressed the part and talked my way through the interviews. There were those I frustrated because I would not accept their mentoring me for better things. Only now do I appreciate their efforts. Obviously I took my young years of studying philosophy too seriously. I was very naive when I started out, but with a tendency to rebel. Truth mattered, and sadly still does.
Rebellion is redolent throughout history, but most people conform. As I have said before, ‘Freedom is the recognition of necesstiy’. I read those immprtal words daubed on the stark concrete walkway walls of the qUniversity of East Anglia when I stepped up from my student residences in the autumn of 1973. A similar viewpoint was expressed by Kris Kristofersen in his lyric: ‘Freedoms just another name for nothing left to lose and nothing don’t mean nothing when its free.’
And so I come to the point of this little piece of writing. Yesterday, leaders of the revolt against Spanish rule in Catalonia received long sentences for sedition. This sparked violent protests against the Spanish authorities who came down violently against them. That is what police are for across Europe and beyond. They do not exist to fight what we used to call crime.
The police exist to protect the powerful, crush dissent and naive ideas of freedom fighting. Freedom of mind is to recognise this truth. To confront it will most likely lead to a criminal record, injury, death, incarceration and defeat. In the words of philosopher Bertrand Russell, ‘ Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.’ The only power stronger than the corrupt elite’s is nature. The elite are at war with that, confronting it, relying on science nerds , propoganda and the selfish survival instincts of the ignorant masses- which in my view includes Extinction Rebellion. We have an on going subtle world war, focused on the Middle East, because of this. it has one Hell of a carbon footprint and Britain’s RAF boasting it now has women flying the bombers, in the name of equal opportunity to be a moron, is nothing to boast about
Rival camps are forming. Russia is now sidling up to vile Saudi Arabia, the war on Yemen could not exist without Britain’s support, Britain and U.S express outrage at the Kurds accepting the Syrian government’s support and Trump has recently announced sanctions against Turkey, as he has done against China and Iran.
This is just a part of their war against nature, accting as if humans are all that matters on earth, all in the name of a Judaic/Christian/Islam God that has only existed in peoples slavish minds for about 15 generations. That triumvariate has inordiate power to corrupt and justify this war on nature, where the only freedom on offer is death.
Robert Cook October 15th 2019
The Crime Minister October 14th 2019
I do not recall Prime Minister Thatcher having much to say about toughening up on crime fighting. She was too busy making industry ‘leaner and fitter’ freeing up the City of London, turning education into a form of policing through the mind numbing national curriculum, destroying working families, raising unemployment, enriching a rich minority creating the me first culture ( the seed of ‘Me Too ‘ ) selling state assets off cheap and giving the police the opportunity to practice for riot control at the striking coal miner’s picket lines.
In the process, she destroyed the social fabric as we knew it and launched two wars- including the first Gulf War for the sake of UK And U.S oil interests.
She was a hard act to follow but New Labour’s Tony Blair was more than up to the job. It was not difficult for him to outshine Thatcher’s insipid successor John Major. The biggest robberies of the Major era involved the banks and city of London. No problem breaking laws when you are the law maker. Unfortunately for Johnson he is not in a position to make laws, but he is trying to impress with his Queen’s Speech.
Like Tony Blair- the man many would like to see tried for war crimes, but nothing has ever stuck to the man Private Eye magazine nicknamed Teflon Tony– Boris Johnson sees himself not so much as the Crime Minister, as Parliament would have us believe- but the Crime Fighting Minister.
Thus he has come out with the same old stuff about tougher and longer sentences with a focus on domestic and harassment crimes- the latter all female vote winning post Thatcher crimes. There is no mention of tough laws against women who commit domestic violence or lie about all forms of sex attacks. That, officially, doesn’t happen so doesn’t need laws.
Boris is now promising 20,000 more police officers to help his cause cleaning up crime infested anti social diverse Britain. Police sources have said that to meet this target over the next few years would require at least 200,000 applicants because they calculate that only one in ten applicants will have the special qualities needed to police modern Britain. One can easily imagine what these qualities are. I believe Portsmouth University offers the police special courses on the subject, awarding a BSc at the end of it.
There are very serious questions as to what these much sought after qualities are. The judge dealing with former Government Chief Whip Andrew Mitchell’s libel case said : ‘The officer who said you called him a Pleb could not have been lying because he has no imagination and so is perfectly suited to his job as a police constable.
In that same Plebgate incident an officer was jailed for lying that he saw and heard Mitchell calling the officers bl–dy plebs. The officer was actually at home in Aylesbury at the time of the incident.
Matters got worse. In order to clear the adverse record against him, Mitchell agreed to see three officers from three overlapping police forces in his constituency. One of these forces was West Mercia. Mitchell met them in his constituency offices in Sutton Colfield. Mitchell’s wife did not trust the police so advised him to secretly record the meeting.
The three plain clothes officers came out of the meeting strutting eagerly up to the waiting media crews and their satellite dishes. Then the West Mercia Officer, DS Ken Macall said that Mitchell admitted calling the officers plebs. Mitchell proved them liars.
A West Mercia Police Inspector, described as church going was deployed to investigate. He concluded that the officers were guilty of misconduct and should fce disciplinary proceedings, only to have his conclusions rejected by the force’s Deputy Chief Constable Simon Chesterman.
It came to light that Mitchell was known to have raised concerns about police overtime hours in his constituency, which as said, included West Mercia. He was out to raise effieciency. The Crime Commissioner for Dyffed Powys wrote an article on the matter for the Mail. He named Chesterman and refered to a feral police force.
I find it nauseating every time an officer has a mishap, accident in a police car during a dangerous pursuit or is killed on the job , that we have to hear the stuff about heroics. A hero is someone who does something he doesn’t have to for the sake of others. There may be a few of this type getting through the selection process if they are lucky.
In his book ‘Line of Fire’ one such honest senior police officer Brian Paddick wrote. ‘It wasn’t my homosexuality that caused me problems in the police, it was my honesty.’ He quotes Mark Twain who said: ‘Always tell the truth, that way you do not have to remember what you said.
Today a West Indian man arrested back in 1972, with his colleague by a Corrupt lying Metropolitan DS Police officer – who went on to die in jail for his part in planning a burgalary on police time- has won his right to appeal his conviction. He and a colleague were known as the Oval Two, and fought for black rights. The police are an appealing career choice for would be criminals and perspectivist thinkers ( See Social theory and Social Structure by R K Merton ). Thus it has been know to attarct all sorts of bigots, including racists.
The Oval Two were bailed for 8 months and did 8 months in jail. They had been followed by a group of officers led by the DS, falsely accused of shoplifting, attacked on the tube station, taken to a police station where a confession was beaten out of them. As said : that was back in 1972.! The jury automatically believed the police. There were no other witnesses. It has taken him all these years to win a right to appeal against his conviction.
Paddick writes near the beginning of his book about when he was a probationary constable. He said he was driven by a senior contable to a dance hall in a very West Indian part of South London on a Saturday night. While sitting there outside the main doors, Paddick wondered what he and his old colleague could possibly do to break up any fights.
Then a double decker bus went past and the senior man slammed the car into gear and chased after it.. As he drove with his flashing lights on, he said ; ‘Did you see that?’ ‘What?’ Paddick asked. ‘That bus ran a red light’. ‘No I didn’t see it.’ said Paddick. ‘Well you will say you saw it when you get back to the station. Two police officer’s words count for the truth against members of the public.’
I have my reasons for being interested in police corruption and how their system works. The head of the police college and the HM Inspector of Constabularies have raised questions about the wrong people getting promoted. One force, Cleveland, was described recently as not fit for purpose and the Met have been involved in a serious cover up regarding lies about a VIP sex abuse ring. This is the second occasion when Cressida Dick’s competence has been thrown intio question.
I could go on and it is time someone joined it all up wrote a book exposing the British Police for the instiutionally corrupt organisatioin that they are. It is a place of ritualistic behaviour, a quasi military hierarchy prone to bullying anyone who doesn’t seem to fit or blows a whistle- regardless of race or gender-where like recruits like, whatever the race or colour. Clevealnd forced reforming Sue Simm out of her job as CC and have had six new CCs in as many years.
Corrupt personalities may well be what they will be looking for in that 200,000- whatever they are really looking for, senior officers have too much power and independence so they will wraptheir actions all up in jargon. It has been argued that the recruitmenmt process has something to do with why the British police solve less than 6% of robberies.
They also have a reputation for victimising people they do not like, witholding and corrupting evidence. The recent Metropolitan Police scandal has seen the lead officer in the VIP case promoted and the official police watchdog coming out with what is widely regarded as a cover up or white wash. This body has been renamed the IPOC instead of the IPCC, but is still very much a part of the police system and at best a mailing service- old wine in a new bottle, or should I say Bluebottle!.
So if Crime Minsiter Boris Johnson really wants to make his mark he should do what no other Prime Minister or Home Swecretary has ever dared or wanted to do : STOP THROWING MONEY AT THE POLICE, REFORM THEM, FORCE AN EFFICIENCY DRIVE, GET A TRULY INDEPENDENT WATCHDOG WITH POWER TO ENFORCE PROSECUTIONS AND ENFORCE SEVERE PUNISHMENTS FOR POLICE WRONG DOING AND CUT CHIEF OFFICERS PARASITICAL PERKS.
The ludicrously outdated ranking system also needs looking at because it rewards those gifted at what the sociologist Irving Goffman called impression management. It is a system which has ACC’s doing little more than writing appraisals, going to conferences and courses, junkeys in expensive hotels and playing golf with those they suck up to.
Good impressions of smarming for promotion are not the way to impress the wider long suffering wider public, though the well off who see the police as their guard dogs will go on fawning to them. It is hard pressed working people who experience the reality of everyday British policing and it is not nice for most of us. Robert Cook
Oily World October 13th 2019
Britain is the island whose people changed the world. Henry VIII’s Protestant Reformation in 1536 loosened the chains of religion. The English Civil War loosened the chains of the British Monarchy. This country went on to rule the world, exporting the industrial revolution and plundering -with the connivance of indigenous elites- its empire for the necessary materials.
Inevitably the British elite grew ever more arrogant and corrupt. The North American colonies revolted agains excruciating taxes, breaking away to form the United States- U.S.A. Slave owner George Washington, whose family came from Northmaptonshire in England, became its first President.
The U.S.A expanded west carrying out a massive genocide against the native American Indians and continuing to import slaves from Africa. As industry advanced, Britain and the U.S.A developed a mutual interest in the Middle East, buying off local rulers to serve their insatiable demands. Saudi Arabia was a British invention serving Western interests and practising religious hypocrisy ever since.
It is ironical that the region which gave birth to the so called great religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam- with all its factions as the politicians within them fought for power over the masses- has so much oil wealth, poverty and ignorance . It is almost funny that the Middle Eastern masses do not see who is pulling the strings.
Do people in my part of the world know what is really going on? Arguably the elite does, but one wonders. The bare faced cheek and hypocrisy of presidential hopeful Joe Biden and his son says it all. Their first concern is for lining their own pockets and using mainstream media as their oily interface with the public.
Maybe the masses have just given up. Maybe they are inherently stupid, not seeing the connection with the fact that the U.S.A has spent $1 billion dollars encouraging and supporting Syrian rebels over the last ten years. Is it any wonder that Britain and the U.S’ so called democratic leader’s maligned Julian Assange for exposing their war crimes and want him locked up forever. They have Chelsea Manning back in jail for refusing to testify against Assange.
Climate change protests and little Greta are widely applauded because they relieve tensions and make leaders look tolerant. False hope is given. But get too close to what is causing the real problems and why, then the system comes down like the proverbial ton of bricks.
Wars and human population growth have massive carbon footprints. Carbon emissions are a consequence of human greed and ignorance, not a cause. The elite do not want the lower orders to know that. Just keep praying, drinking, having sex and taking drugs- prescription or otherwise- and you’ll feel fine.
Venezueala, Ecuador, Iran, Syria, Iraq, and Iran are all examples of the insane Western elite foreign policy. Russia, not a land run by angels, is the scapegoat, the root source of all the smoke and mirrors.
Ireland is the excuse for Britain’s elite faking Brexit, keeping Britain as part of the club but getting rid of our awakward Euro MPs. Britain and the U.S have done so much to stoke up and perpetuate islamic terrorism, rather like a doctor who breaks bones then expects to be admired for botched efforts to mend them.
Lefties Monopolise Morals
October 10th 2019
A sample page from the above satire for kids. The left cannot stand dissent. If anyone says anything against them they scream to no platform anyone who says or writes anything they don’t like.
I think these images speak for themselves. The Liberal left live in an expensive and well paid cocoon. While driving back from London this morning, BBC’s Radio 4 luvvies told the sad tale of how an organic farmer will have to plough under his valuable crop of organic carrots because no deal Brexit will mean they won’t get certificated for export to Europe.
It would not occur to this greedy fellow that there are desperate people in this country who have to scavenge in food banks. So he would rather let them rot than feed the needy or help prices fall. That is what the EU is about, profit for the privileged. Robert Cook
Talking about my medication, we’re one f—ed up generation October 9th 2019.
Back in 1986 Bucks County Council Education Department tried to sack me for politicising. My crime was involving three second years ( nowadays called ninth years ) and a sixth former in the production and radio broadcast of a song inspired by the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station explosion, which resulted in massive radiation contamination across Northern Europe. At the time Thatcher’s greed loving Tory Government were out to defend nuclear power and get rid of troublesome striking coal miners who had held the country to ransom.
Back in those days we radicals had a generation above us to blame. That was comforting when we felt like throwing a Greta like tantrum. One line in my authority vexing song was ‘We’re gonna grow older in a minute but we wanted to be kids all our lives.’ ‘
As in the words of the song. ‘Life was all so simple then.’ Now mental illness is at record levels and gender bending has turned into gender swapping. For more on that read a book called ‘The feminisation of nature.’ If you think that is a good thing, check out another book, ‘The female sexual abuse of children.’
I digress. With both of my parents dead, I fel very much alone on this planet, and far too responsible. We baby boomers have a lot to answer for, but the greedy selfish Thatcher generation led the way. I went to university when it was a privilege for 3% of the population, not a rite of passage and a production line. We have graduates now who are remedial students, buying essays on line for continuous assessment degrees. As long as they are sufficiently superfical and well connected they will get cushy jobs. If not the best they might hope for is a call centre position.
Thus it is not surprising that we have record numbers of young drug addicts, alcoholics and suicides. Girls are told to fight stereotypes and become fighter pilots, dropping more bombs on the Middle east for no good reason other than pandering to the greedy few. People from my genration are now in the top jobs and they think they know it all. As Descarte opined: ‘ Cogito Ergo Sum.’ By this I mean, they are what they think they are. They have the power, leaving the lower orders to wage internecine ( self destructive ) gender, religious and race wars. Robert Cook
Sex Lies And Politics – SLAP October 8th 2019
If hypocrisy was a scarce commodity the British establishment elite could promote package and sell it round the world. Oh silly me. they have done that for years, buikding an empire and losing it in the process. Now they are part of an even greater empire- what some disrespectfully call ‘The Fourth Reich.’
How dare people be allowed to demean such a noble enterprise as the EU, it has made so many rich people richer? Of course there have been casualties, like bombing people out of their countries, killing them stoking up religious differences to divide and rule, destroying industries, pricing people out of being able to by stuff so the rich get richer, and creating record levels of homelessness, drink and drug abuse. But it has all been in a good cause, so we do not want to lose it.
The rich must be allowed to get richer, carry on jet setting while blaming climate change on the masses. After all it is obviously them with their old cars and penchant for package holidays on a cramped cheap flight.
As for that Boris Johnson, he should get a visit from our ever so self righteous police- more to come on the police later this week. A Labour member of the London Assembly has requested the boys and girls in blue look into Boris’s afairs.
Of course we do not have conspiracies in this great country, do we? A CIA boss told us all a few years ago that only nutters believe such nonsense.
So there is no conspiracy to get rid of PM Boris without following due constitutional process of getting a vote of no confidence, followed by an election. It is obvious isn’t it, Boris Johnson is a liar because the Parliamentarians and luvvie media snobs say so. No need for evidence these days, with so much crime and pressure on police resources/
That is why we should be so grateful for the story and revelations about Boris on the front page of today’s ‘The Metro.’ The headline reads ‘Pole Dancing, The PM And Me.’ This is all about Boris making far too many visits to tech boss Jennifer Acuri. Of course the hypocritcal ‘Metro’ prefers to focus on her years working as a pole dancer rather than her serious business which Boris allegedly favoured while London Mayor. Labour’s John McDonnell sseems furious and priapasmic on the subject.
Funny that when you recall how New Labour’s heroic working class hero turned Deputy Prime Minister, John Prescott, was hailed as something of a lad when he took advanatage of his young diary secretary. The political bruiser loved having her stripped to stockings and suspenders for pleasure in his private office. This rather large bit of a lad eventually got elevated to The House of Lords. Prescott orignally denied the affair.
The most famous case of political sex and lies was John Profumo in 1962. Profumo was Minister for War ( They called a spade spade at the time, no pussyfooting about him being a Minister for Defence and soldier peacekeepers ) testing out his weapons system with young Christine Keeler. Obviously he lied to Parliament when the matter came to light.
I can’t wait to see what happens next. Merkel told Boris today that she doesn’t think a deal at all possible unless Northern Ireland remains in the customs union. Meanwhile the liberal Guardian reports on a left wing think tank’s conclusions that a no deal Brexit will kill people. Well that is what people voted for- do not believe the lies that it wasn’t so. Cameron should have thought of that.
He didn’t because he is the essence of what is seriously wrong with British politics. Cameron was, and still is as his new book testifies, totally out of touch supercilious and patronising. He expected an endorsement for EU membership and ever closer union.
Now he and the rest of the nasty privileged virtue signalling elite will do anything to stop Boris going ahead with ‘no deal.’ With true British elitist cum feminist hypocrisy, they have moved on to sex. So we have it, sex, lies and politics- SLAP for short..
Premier Inn? No! Premier Out!
October 7th 2019
Trendy PC lefties just can’t accept Brexit. That is why they go on and on about ‘We are not leaving without a deal.’ It is very simple. Leaving Europe with a deal, particularly being trapped in the customs union, with any version of the Irish backstop. is not leaving. It is the worst of all worlds.
The touchy feelie feminine and feminsed members of the British Parliament have no obvious idea of how corrupt their internationalist super state is. Nor do they seem to appreciate that this favourite member, Britain, not only pays the union a fortune, it helps the U.S.A bomb people out of the Middle East and has opened the door to North African migrants.
We are not allowed to talk about this. Laws are made up every few minutes to keep us under control, it seems. Britain’s elite are cheer leaders in the war against the so called far right that their foreign policy has caused. Multi culture and diversity is the pampered elite’s recurring mantra as they patronise the unwashed underclass they find so disgusting for voting leave- against their wishes.
Boris Johnson is labelled a populist rabble rouser, unfit for office. When I was in Charlotte St, Central London this morning, I picked up a copy of ‘The Metro.’ The newspaper is a right on freebie that it is cool to be seen reading .
I could not belive my eyes when I read the headline. Forget the really important story of how the so called Independent Office for Complaints Against the Police has given the Metropolitan Police a clean bill of health for persecuting so called celebbrity paedophiles- after illegal searches and terrible police and press ordeals lasting years. That body is as corrupt as the police it is allegedly watching.
No apologies or compensation from the police and this so called watchdog cronies. No atonment in Britain’s much vaunted democracy which seems so precious to Europe, as Europe is allegedly precious to Britain.
So the whole story becomes even more alarming, as the ‘Metro’ headline trumpets ‘Squat A Nerve’. The story is about Prime Minister Boris Johnson saying that he will refuse to leave Downing Street if Parliament’s conspiracy to vote him out succeeds. He says he will not leave unless the police remove him by force.
These are strange and worrying times. The plan is to vote Boris out because the Opposition has more members than he does. Then, without going to the people, this rabble of opportunists and jealous people will vote in a caretaker government and caretaker leader to see Brexit through. It is amazing how these hypocrits labelled Boris as a law breaker- a law he broke before they conspired to make it. This is satire being acted out without a script writer.
This House of Parliament headed up by Speaker John Bercow is all about virtue signalling. Their basic pay is £70,000 a year. To them, populism is a dirty word and Boris is something of a beast. Our delicate MPs who would have you believe have soul above money.
Not for these pious parliamentarians any need to abide by the law to get Boris out. There was no law to stop Boris prorogueing Parliament- so the Parilamentarians made one via tame Judge Lady Hale, a feminist icon.
There is a law regarding the removal of a Prime Minister and Government, and it is a custom under Britain’s unwritten constitution ( see The British Constitution by Walter Bagehot ) . It is simple. The Oppostion, who are handsomely paid- Corbyn gets around £120,00 plus expenses- call for a vote of no confidence. A General Election then follows.
They won’t do that because they fear a no deal exit from the EU would happen beforehand. If that didn’t happen, then they fear two possible outcomes. Outcome One is that Boris gets a large majority and takes a no deal if he has to. Outcome Two is that Boris gets defeated, so the Opposition have to take the reponsibility and the rap for whatever mess of a deal they fob off on the public. Robert Cook
Why Trust The Police? October 6th 2019
From personal experience and ongoing problems, I will never trust the British police again. How many more scandals and revelations does the public need before they realise that the police’s main priority is their safe jobs, benefits, pensions and promotion prospects? As soon as one of them has an accident, their friends in the media shout about police heores.
Their command and control processes and structure is institutioanly corrupt. Feral officers get promoted. They are very close to the centre of government. One wonders which is the tail and which the dog when it comes to that relationship.
When it comes to accountability, the police are at best economical with the truth. More often they are just plain liars and do not like criticism. Jumping on the back of Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick over the ‘Operation Midland’ scandal is just scapegoating and covering up for instutional corruption in all of Britain’s police forces. The only lessons that will be learned is how best to cover up next time. No expenses are spared when it comes to the police’s reputation.
Dick has already survived the Stockwell illegal police killing scandal. Video tapes of that incident significantly disappeared before the Inquiry. Dick, who gave the order to kill a young innocent Brazilian that they had mistaken for a middle aged Pakistani terrorist- attacking a female withesses reputation- got promoted. True to form, the discredited senior detective who led the vicious so called investigation into an alleged high level paodophile ring, has been promoted.
The so called investigation cost £2.5 million of taxpayer’s money, without a single arrest but years of uncertainty and damning publicity for the police’s victims. A spokesman for the force said, of the heavily redacted report released to the public, said he was confident that the Independent Office for Complainst against the Police, would exonerate significant aspects of the Inquiry. One of the vicious police’s victims in this case, former MP Harvey Proctor, said his life had been ruined, he lost evrything and is no longer the same man.
Informant Carl Beech, was known anonymously as “Nick” when he made claims in 2014 that sparked the so called investigation. Officers get a lot of brownie points for nailing sex offenders. Hence their enthisiasm.
So the police quickly decided their informant’s allegations were ‘credible and true’ , going public in their quest for more victims to come forward, naming and shaming them. That passes for justice in Britain’s moralising version of representative feminist dominated democracy. If the police can drive their victims to suicide that is taken as a sign of the peron’s guilt.
They spent a fortune framing Barry George for killing Jill Dando, even though they had a phone call from a foreign agent saying he did it. The Met Officer who got hapless fantasist George jailed , was promoted- true to form. They did their best to jail Colin Stagg for killing Rachel Nickel, even paying a female officer to lead him on to confess via a fake relationship.
She asked him to do the same to her as the knife man- naming him- had done to Rachel. Her messages were graphic and revolting. Stagg argued that he could never do that and had not killed Rachel. That did not stop the police charging him with murder, remanding him, publishing his name and taking him to trial. This was truly terrifying police power at work for a gullible public!
Stagg was hounded by the press and police for years after. Neither men got compensation with George being told it was up to him to prove his innocence. That is the British Police State, not a good or safe place for a lot of men. I will never trust the police again. They are quite open that their prosecutions do not have to be evidence based. How much more vile can this country get? Quite a lot I am afraid.
The judge dealing with a Plebgate officer’s libel case against the former Cabinet minister Andrew Mitchell, who allegedly swore at this police officer in Downing Street, ruled : ‘The officer was a man of limited imagination well suited to his job as a police officer. He could not have lied about this.’
A senior West Mercia Police officer altered an official report that had concluded the three officers, who lied about Mitchell admitting to swearing at officers in the Plebgate affair,should face disciplianry proceedings. The senior officer over ruled this decision.
This report had been compiled by a man described as a ‘church going inspector.’ It seems a matter of routine and character for officers, particularly senior ones,because ‘they are well respected’ and have powerful friends and colleagues, ( That is a police jargon phrase) to lie in pursuit of their and colleague’s own ends. They stick together.
The police are a powerful vested interest defeating three Home Secretary’s attempts to reform them. With diverse Britain better described as fragmented, their kudos expands. As I said, which is the tail and which the dog in this animal saga? Robert Cook
Cressida Dick Met Police Scapegoat October 6th 2019 by Charles Close
I must disagree with Robert Cook on the matter of Cressida Dick who has been advised to consider her position over Operation Midland. She commands the largest police force in Britain, in the complex diverse capital city. She cannot be expected to micro manage every investigation.
Dick was chosen because the job had to go to a woman. Robert Cook condemns her for the Stockwell killing, but she could only respond to information provided by failing officers on the ground. – according to information received at her command and control base.
It may be a scandal that the officer in charge of Operation Midland has been promoted. However , the police are under incredible pressure to persue and prosecute alleged sex offenders.
It is high level people who craved revealinmg accused peoples’ identities. Now they have paid the price. Had this case involved low class sink estate dwellers, names would have been revealed and prosecutions rushed with almost certain conviction followed by jail. Evidence would not have been an issue.
Gunning for Cressida Dick may be political because she claimed that there would be a lot less violence and drug problems if the upper middle class young professionls had not created a market for Class A Drugs.
Two cabinet ministers have recently admitted cocaine abuse. They are probably the tip of the iceberg. Rock and pop musicians also have a record for using these drugs. Cocaine is the great sex enhander, better than viagra I am told.
As senior officers go, I think Dick has more integrity and honesty than most in her position.

Right to Privacy October 6th 2019
Obviously as a blogger I want people to read what I write. I know that the police take an interest in my work and why? I have had sveral computers confiscated and ruined by their intrusions. That is the price one pays for rocking Britain’s Titanic like state.
Britain is a land of many myths, from the Loch Ness Monster, the sexual revolution, to British democracy. In our alleged democracy. the excuse for its injustices, lies and oversights is that we have a particular type of democracy. It is called a ‘representative democracy.’
That means we elect a representatives to speak and argue about matters of state, national and international. They do not have to listen to us. There is an elite owned and controlled media, along with elite run civil service, to inform us as to what our choices should be. They will be representative of what are called the main parties who share in the consensus.
Any idependent or new party will be ridiculed and their reresentatives will be scrutinised and risk their reputations, by the establishment media outrage to block thier election. Any mainstream politician stepping out of line will risk similar ruin, as we see with Boris Johnson and Donald Trump- th U.S mentality and elite differ little from Britain’s and are interrelated.
So we have the British government on the rampage to stop Mark Zuckerberg’s plan to encrypt members’ messages to each other. the argument is that vigilance is needed to protect the public against sex offenders and terrorists. The war on paodophiles is of uppermost concern to government and freedoms must be built around those concerns. That seems to be the official view. Robert Cook
Toxic Masculinity October 6th 2019
I spent 14.25 hours, plus another 45 minutes on break, at work yesterday. As a person who does not enjoy modern music or nostalgia for sounds of long ago, I listen to Radio 4 while I drive.
Yesterday I heard a play about a middle aged man, an artist, self obsessed and also obsessed with a younger woman. That younger woman had a thing about older men. She said : ‘They make better lovers, taking their time and with more attention.’ The wife replied sarcastically ‘That is because they are too tired and warn out to do anything else.’
Both the older man and his girlfriend had the cheek to think that the wife should accept this as a freedom from the sexual restrictions and hypocrisy of old. The wife cracked up and went to see an analyst.
I am not upper middle class so I don’t know if that is normal for such people. It is certainly normal to denigrate men as sex abusers and as inherently violent. When a male Tory MP called for an ammendment to the new Domestic Violence Bill to include women as potential abusers, there was catcalling and shouting down from feminists in the public gallery.
The idea that women might, of their own volition, commit acts of depravity and violence towards spouses or children is anathema to the angelic forces of feminism.
The Domestic Violence Bill will soon be law and the bias will be against men. Women never lie is the official mantra. Husbands will not be allowed to croass examine ex partners in court. Female politicans and media miss no opportunity to broadcast stories that fit the dogma, playing down or ignoring anything bad that women do.
Listening to ‘Any Questions’ a feminist left winger warned the doubters, ‘There are going to be a lot more like us, so get used to it.’ She told fellow panelist Nigel Farage : ‘Shut up.’
‘Weekend Woman’s Hour’ featured the subject of ‘Toxic Masculinity’. Jane Garvey interviewed three in touch young males, including a female impersonator and reformed sexist. To them the phrase ‘Toxic Masculinity’ was a useful man shaming word.
Also this week, in the run up to passing the Domestic Violence Bill, Labour’s Caroline Duffy had a sisterhood hand holding moment with fellow female MPs as she finished an impassioned speech , which clearly called on her experience with her jealous controlling ex partner. On appearance I suspect that Ms Duffy is from a comfortable background.
From what she said, she fell for man who bought her gifts, including jewelery and took her to expensive resturants. He obviously had mone, the clothes, the car and the smarm. It is notciebale that a certain class of women choose a certain type of man. That becomes their reference point for some very dangerous and cruel generalisations.
I first read about domestic violence when I was a postgraduate student at Goldsmith’s College, London University in 1978. I read Erin Pizzey’s ‘Scream Quietly so the Neighbours Don’t Hear.’ Pizzey teamed up with fellow feminist Faye Weldon – author of ‘The Lives and Loves of a She Devil ‘ -went on to scrutinise abuse carried out by females.
Weldon lamented the fact that her son ended up in jail. Fellow feminist Germaine Greer has hardly been heard of since she came out with the amazing statement that ‘Most rapes are just bad sex.’
Sex has become a minefield. Marriage and birth rates among the white population have never been lower. Children growing up in a one parent family are more likely to suffer mental health issues, become involved in drug / alcohol related problems, crime and suicide. They are also more likely to develop issues around gender identity and sexual preference. These issues are outside of the smug comfortable elite consensus. The gender Identity Clinic has become a vested interest feeding off these problems. Hate crime and thought police sit ready to pounce on anyone who questions this situation.
Good people don’t see it because they are being trained and brainwashed to see a world threatened only by the far right, sex offenders and male domestic abusers. Robert Cook
Nothing Worse Than a Bent Cop October 1st 2019
I grew up watching ‘Dixon of Dock Green’ on a 405 line black and white ‘Murphy TV’ in the late 1950s. The worst case of police corruption fatherly PC Dixon ever dealt with was a young officer up from Bristol ( played by a young Paul Eddington ) stealing from his colleagues lockers to make ends meet.
These TV characters, where the head of CID was called father- and the female sergeant was called WPS, with the approprate name of Grace- were beyond reproach. they had seen all sorts of horrors during the wartime blitz, but never a bent cop.
The programme created by saintly Ted Willis and set in an imaginary London Borough by the River Thames had a high moral tone, influencing me to trust the police. Since then I have seen a very nasty side to the British police. I am glad I changed my mind about joing them in the 1970s. That is another story.
Over the years perceptionns and behaviour have changed. ‘ Z Cars,’ created by a jaundiced Mersey side Detective Sergeant raised serious questioned. DS Challoner of West End Central exposed his and othersd serious corruption in the Metropilitan police. The CID had a drinking culture which persists. The police did not like the ‘Z Cars’ storylines which showed cops’ difficult family lives and peculiar characters, with DCI Barlow being portrayed as a bully.
Positive discrimination did not save Northumbria Police’s Chief Sue Sim when she was forced out by corrupt hard drinking bullying male colleagues in 2016. she was trying to reform that force. These bloated warrirs in the war against sexism used all the offensive language and group bullying to discredit her. Weeks after she left, former colleagues showed contempt by refusing to take her daughter’s rape claims seriously.
To make matters worse, her and a former female colleague were arrested on Edinburgh’s Waverley Station for being drunk and disorderly after a night out.
Former Assistant Commisioner of the Metropolitan Police Brian Paddick writes in his police memoirs ‘In the Line of Fire’, ‘It wasn’t my homosexuality that caused me problems in the police, it was my honesty.’ His advice is ‘Always tell the truth, that way you do not have to remember what you said..’
Zach Staford write in ‘The Guardian’ ( July 27th 2015 ) For decades it has been widely accepted to only frame police officers as people who save us, protect us and stop the ‘bad guys.’ They have been the superheroes of countless stories, always getting the bad guy – a bad guy who just so happens to always be black. While there is nothing wrong with a good superhero in any story, we shouldn’t assume that just because someone carries a gun and wears a uniform that they are always the hero and can do nothing wrong. Zach Staford ‘The Guardian.’ July 27 2015′
With all of this in mind, and more, the police Public Relations Departments have a policy of amplifying any incident where officers are hurt. It would be churlish that many of these cases involve poor risk assessmeny by officers. As a truck driver I would not stand in front of a runaway truck. Had I been a police officer, I would not have stood in the way of a man with a machette.
The officer who did this recently was hailed as a hero, not a fool- when he stopped a van being driven by an Asian man in London, at night, suspecting the vehicle was not insured. However, drugs were on board. Why are drugs such a problem? Why do we have such a violent sub culture in diverse Britain.
The National Police College recently reported that promotions are based on croneyism and the wrong people get the top jobs. A few years ago Cleveland’s Chief and Deputy Chief Constables were forced to ‘retire’ on full penisons for corrupt financial practice- revealed by a brave female civilian.
Recently the head of underperforming Police Scotland was forced out because his assistant bravely stepped out of line reporting his boss for bullying. I have been a public servant and know what the creepy careeists do to whistle blowers.
Meanwhile, Cleveland Police are back in the news having officially failed on all categories of performance criteria. The force has had six Chief Constables in as many years, all, apart from Sue Sim who tried to do something about it, trotting out the mantra ‘lessons will be learned.’
Chief Officers have large salaries with many expensive benefits, including moving allowances, luxury cars and drivers, all expenses paid luxury junkets in expensive hotels in Edinburgh and other places. They have extraordianry power and no real accountability. The complaints system is ultimately in the Chief Constables hands. Their time is mainly used up policing the net, hate crimes, sexual allegations and domestics.
What used to be taken seriously, non sexual assaults, robbery and burglary has an official clear up rate of 7%. Cover ups and collusion are their speciality- as Hillsborough contiiniues to demonstrates. They are part of the same corrupt self serving malignancy that is being exposed in Parliament. Hailing every officer who gets run over by his own vehicle or similar misfortune, isobvious window dressing.
Johnson and Patel promising 20, 000 more officers with lots of state of the art kit will just mean more of the same, and more taxes- which rich people tend to avoid. The police already consume 25% of all council tax paid. Robert Cook October 3rd 2019
A Tale of Two Toffs- October 1st 2019
Back in March this year Boris Johnson caused a storm by arguing that the police were wasting millions investigating historic claims of sex abuse. ‘Tell that to those whose lives have been ruined screamed ‘The Mail’s’ headline. quoting an ex Chief Prosecutor Nazir Afzal who tweeted: ‘Boris Johnson thinks spending money on delivering justice to victims of child sexual abuse is wasted.’
Today Piers Morgan, on the ‘This Morning Show’ accused PM Boris Johnson of being a sex offender. Boris is already in trouble over allegations of an improper relationship with a busnesswoman when he was Mayor of London.
Prime Minister Johnson has been formally referred for potential investigation into whether he committed the criminal offence of misconduct in public office, over relations with a US businesswoman while he was mayor of London.
Boris Johnson said the only reason groping allegations are being made is because “quite a few people don’t want Brexit”. The allegations are that Boris squeezed a female journalist’s thigh in the late 1990s.
Meanwhile the British mainstream media has nothing nasty to say about investigating Price Andrew’s business conduct or the sexual allegations against hin which are far more serious.
Prince Andrew’s relationsionship with convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein- who miraculous;y managed to break his neck in two places while under surveilance in jail- is intriguing. If they had been made about Boris he would already be on remand.
The allegations against Prince Andrew were first made years ago. Obviously he is not ging to be held to account. No doubt the authorities are already working out ways of burying this story, regardless of evidence. It will probably be written off and received by an eager public, as a terrible conspiracy against the monarchy. Meanwhile they want to bury Boris and Brexit. It seems this is a tale of two toffs with very different treatnents and characters.
There is a majot problem with historic abuse allegations where a woman’s word is always taken as truth, unless it is made against someone like Prince Andrew. It is very convenient that these allegations come while the Brexit con merchants are worried they won’t get away with it.
Who’s Joking? September 29th 2019
On our Polly Sexual page we have the story of a man visited by police for an inappropriate post about transexuals. The post was cruel and possibly misinformed. However, the scary thing about it was the comments by a police officer sent to interview him.
The officer explained he had been on a course. He accepted that the tweeter had broken no laws.
We have a copy letter sent to a pre op transexual-after her third annual consulation and two years of hormone treatment and blood tests -informing her GP ‘she has a secure female identity’ promising gender reassignment surgery as soon as testosterone levels were suitably reduced.
The letter is signed by Dr Kirpal Sahota of the Tavistock Gender Identity Clinic in Hammersmith London. A few weeks later a psychiatrist, student and mental health nurse turned up at the patient’s home, insisting on entry and forcing a series of interviews. The patient was then sent a copy report diagnosing paranoid personality disorder, saying hospital was not immediately needed. Monitoring would be ongoing.
Anti psychotic drugs were insisted upon as a part of the process. The patient has requested, from them and the GMC, their working definition of paranoid personality disorder- it is explained on our psychology page- and how the patient met the criteria. This has been denied.
The psychiatrist CR Ramsay recommended a milti agency monitring process involving the police. The case is very serious and on going. One has to wonder where the real insanity lies. Maybe there is no contradiction between being judged female in a male body, suitable for sex change and paranoid at the same time! I wonder.
Censorship on this subject in the name of fake liberal diversity could be doing very serious harm and promoting further gender totalitarianism in a country where working class men are increasingly isolated and inclined to suicide.
There is an increasingly powerful movement to abolish gender specific toys, through advertising and education, in spite of evidence that from an early age girls show more interest in faces and boys how things work. Psychology and psychiatry are not easily, if at all, grounded in what one might call science.
From the outset judgements of what is right, wrong, appropriate and inappropriate behaviour have been cuturally defined. Cultural developments and hegemony is very much in the hands of the powerful and subversion has dire consequences as war crime whistle blowers Julian Assange and Bradley Manning know to their cost.
Shoot the Messenger September 29th 2019
Back in the 1980s I used to believe that teaching and good writing could change the world. So I dropped out of the rat race thinking teaching would give me time to write. I also thought teachers would be idealists. I soon found most were back stabbing careerist. rampant feminists or both.- more in due course on Junius page.
Thirty years later we see the dream come true. Teachers are brainwashers, police social controllers and journalists spin their so called truths for multi national elite funded mainstream media. So we have the irrelevance of murdered MP Jo Cox intruded into the Brexit fiasco. Cox’s husband and sister, Kate Leadbeater have joined in the row.
The latter is outraged that Boris Johnson said the best way to honour Jo Cox’s memory was to get Brexit done. Words seldom fail him, but he was in an impossible position dealing with an overtly female dominated excuse for a debate. All the women wanted to scream, screech and shout about, with angry faces, was the terrible tone and vocabulary the PM used. This was not debate. It was the assertion of educated female superiority and demand to be obeyed.
The elite expect their agencies and widespread cameras to prevent a rise of the far right, as happened in 1930s Europe. But their rush to condemn suggsts a certain insecurity. One is reminded of the Aberfan coal slag heap collapse in the 1960s, when England did not swing for most of us. One too many loads of wsste was put on that slag heap.
The rain came, the heap collapsed and burried the school. What is never mentioned about the Jo Cox muder is that her killer was being forced to leave the council house he had grown up in and lived with his mother there. All his life and memories had been there.
The house was being given to a large migrant family. The authorities appered not to care about this man or his ethnicity. Hate speech and a feminist libersl obsession with tone, may be making matters worse. Far Right movements are far from an organised mass movement, but an anomic mass response is not out of the question.
Last week’s events have not helped. Now we have opportunistic Labour hoping to criminalise Johnson, just as the Democrats are desperate to get Trump impeached because of the Biden scandal- and threat to his Presidential hopes. These people are quite dreadful, yet they are the ones setting what passes for a moral tone.
The FBI has expended their investigation into Jeffrey Epstein by using more witnesses who claim to have been victims of his sex trafficking, some of whom could help authorities figure out what Prince Andrew’s connection was to the disgraced financier who died by suicide in his New York prison cell in August. Posted September 29th 2019- Full Story on International News Page
I was brought up in a poor working class family in Tory Buckinghamshire. My parents moved out from their native London to Winslow, where she was brought up and had family. She said she liked London but there were few houses or flats for people to live in. My sister was born in London and it was the only place we ever went on holiday until my father’s death, after which we never went on holdiday as a family again.
But I would be lying if I said we knew we were poor because we were British. My parents, as Londoners, remembered the war and the blitz. Mother lost a brother who was serving with the London Irish Rifles.
Common folk suffered much during World War Two, being offered a better world after- ‘fun and laughter and peace ever after’ as Vera Lynn used to sing to them all. People clung on during the really austere 1950s, not wanting to believe it had all been for nothing.
My father, a regular soldier, had been wounded at Dunkirk, serving later as a military policeman in Liverpool and Birkenhead. They had a different outlook on life, a broader outlook, but they were very English. They respected its tradition and trusted its icons.
Churchill had its critics, my mother among them after he visited the munitions factory where she met him. The Royals were held above politics, my mother admiring them for staying in London during the Blitz. All that changed when Princess Diana, her boyfriend and driver died mysteriously in a Paris underpass where they were diverted because a bridge over the River Seine was closed for no obvious reasons.
Cameras along the route were switched off. There are many more unanswered questions about this matter, but suffice it say here that it seriously harmed the credibility of the Queen and Royal family.
Now we have the Epstein scandal. Will there be another slick British establishment cover up? I expect so. The second picture above was taken as the Royal family gathered for their last trip on the Royal Yacht Brittannia. There is no sign of Prince Andrew in this image. Where was he?
Wasteminster Waffle September 25th 2019
Parliament is still asking the government loaded questions about the horrors that will unfold if Britain has a no deal Brext- theonly form of Brexit worth the name. Up until this moment, 17.30 there have been 87. Most are from the combined ex Tory Lib Dem Labour Parliamentary alliance of comfortable vested interests determined to block or have a fake Brexit.
Failing their consent to a General Election so that ‘the people’ can decide, they should revoke Article 50 and admit that the Brexit vote was a sham. Listening to them ranting I can only conclude that being in the EU has taken away this country’s ability to produce anything and the best of our food is being sent abroad. Meanwhile we are told to eat less meat for the environment- really so it can be exported elsewhere at high prices.
Earlier today the Attorney General renewed pleas for decency to prevail and for Parliament -thanks to pompous idiot ex PM David Cameron’s obstructive Fixed Term Parliament Act Parliament now decides- to permit a General Election. This is obviously because they do not trust the people not to give PM Boris aa working majority.
The tone of questioning was all about making a fool of the government. When the Attorney General responded to one loaded question as reminding him of the old barrister joke. ‘Have you stopped beating your wife yet? answer yes or no. A demented posh female Labour MP leapt up and was given the speaker’s permission to rail against him for ‘making a joke of domestic violence and insensitivity.’ Labour certainly has its priorities right. Whatever would it do without domestic violence, female suffering everywhere and racism?
Where Real People Live
September 25th 2019
‘Get outside London where real people live and you will find out what real people want. People did not vote to remain in the single market, it couldn’t have been clearer.’ So said Nigel Farage on BBC news tody at 07.25 BST today.
Farage was called to account when he said that the Supreme Court is a political court set up by Tony Blair and represntative of the political class.
As a former school teacher with many years experience, I am aware that Britain’s schools eschew politics, ensuring high levels of political ignorance as a basis for controlling people en masse. This country’s much vaunted diversity is a con, it is a bit like saying a farm is diverse because it includes humans, chickens, pigs, sheep and cattle.
Tony Blair used to be lampooned as Tony Bliar in trendy ‘Private Eye’. There is no doubt that he lied over Iraq and the dodgy dossier. Still Blair is venerated and so is Cameron, the person who originated the Brexit con trick.
Now I just heard former Supreme Court Judge and BBC news luvvie Lord Sumption answer the question of him and his sort being out of touch with what the people voted for. His answer was: ‘Under the British Constitution 52% of the population cannot have 100% of the spoils.’ I wonder how he squares that with the fact that Margaret Thatcher won a landslide victory with 40 % of the vote in 1979.
She and her Tories went on to dismantle and re assemble the social and economic fabric, enhancing police powers, causing so much misery along the way- selling state assests at knock down prices to Tory cronies, creating record levels of unemployment along the way. Why does the first past the post system apply to all British elections but not Cameron’s Brexit con? Boris Johnson, according to the elite, is a populist who lacks integrity.
Johnson also stands accused of lying to the Queen. It is interesting that the Supreme Court attributes a secret motive for proroging parliament but there is no media interest or calling Parliament, led by Bercow, to account for their obvious intent to block an effective Brexit. I have no idea what a resl Brexit would mean, but I do know that Gina Miller, Parliament and the mainstream media have shown Britain’s democracy for the sham that it is. Among other things, Cameron’s new memoirs show he only allowed a referendum because he expected to manipulate a remain vote. That makes Cameron disingenuous if not a downright liar.
Lady Hale of the Supreme Court and her cronies have overruled years of precedent in our unwritten constitution. The fact that Parliament on all sides is blocking a General Election, wanting a deal first, informs any one with an open mind that Parlaiment and Miller’s intent has not been about our fake democracy, it is about blocking Brexit, to hell with anything or anybody in their way.
Call for Johnson to resign September 24th 2019
The issue is very simply about Britain’s fake democracy. A woman representing extreme wealth has overturned the British Constitution and its precedents. Parlaiment is hoping, backed or maybe led by the odious and pompous John Bercow, to pass off a so called Brexit deal-which will be remaining without representation-f as Brexit. Such a deal will mean remaining on worse terms.
If Labour and Parliament had any guts it would bring a vote of no confidene after revoking Article 50 and openly cancelling Brexit.. There are a lot of down trodden hopeless people in this country.
These people are condemned and scapegoated because they believe they are being overwhlemed by favoured migrants from countries the British elite and the U.S have been bombing ever since 9/11. It is hard to say how things will play out but the misery won’t go away.
Governement Backs Clampdown on Hate Crimes September 24th 2019
Editorial Comment Hate used to be a word popular with soap opera script writers, schoolkids and girls dumping their boyfriends. The famous German philopsopher Goethe said and wrote : ‘You have to be a good hater.’ International English athlete Dick Taylor said : ‘You have to hate to win races.’ When I went before an RAF commission board at RAF Biggin Hill back in the early 1970s, I was asked if I could kill.
A female officer, obviously the board’s psychiatrist was annoyed by my hesitation, cutting in with the comment : ‘Well that’s what it is all about in the end.’ I see her point. How can you kill without emotion, without hate, without believing that the enemy is the bad person and worthy of hate?
A great deal of killing has been orchestrated by the bullies who beccame the ruling elite over the centuries. After Rome went Christian and the barely civilised world spilt between Christian and Islam versions of worship and corrupt rule, each side proclaimed they were right. Love was for God and hate for the enemy.
During the so called ‘Great War’ which was all about greed and empire, millions of young men were slaughtered by their betters while propoganda whipped up hate on both sides. British guns were blessed and returning soldiers in 1918, many crippled or traumatised, were thrown on the scrap heap.
The rich rode out the depression until there was an excuse for more war, hate and patriotic hysteria. The post war hippy period was a flash in the pan, the Western World led by Britain and icons like Germaine Greer morphed into feminism and the apparently endless world of hating men, making them pay and putting them in their place.
Hate has been a useful word enabling us to understand extreme emotions and explore causes. Now it is a label and a crime to control the fall out from a new social order- created, by the ruling elite who have no idea of life at the bottom- called DIVERSITY.
The word fan is short for fanatic. The multi billion pound world of sport relies on fans who are known to get drunk and violent, replacing a sense of lost tribalism and belief with football favours etc. Society’s rulers, including feminists, are very concerned. When they look for causes of hate crimes they are not looking at basic human nature.
They are looking at their new world order design to better design and control the individuals and groups that do not fit the kind of diversity they want. Drugs or prison are their ultimate resort if education and psychotherapy do not fit. Robert Cook September 24th 2019
Censor Oxford Dictionary Insist Feminists September 23rd 2019
It has been said and probably tested that if you put a frog in hot water it will demonstrate how high it can jump. But if you put it into cold water and start boiling it the frog won’t notice until it is too late. So when the raging politically correct feminists started boiling the social water in the 1970s, most people – mired in poverty and despair – did not notice.
So it came to pass, with the ‘inevitability of gradualnes’ phrase as theFabian Webbs used to predict their promised socialist utopia , we experienced all the deliberate changes creeping into social policies and reinforced by school teachers- as I was ordered to do.
No one noticed the thin end of this so called liberal feminist wedge as it prized the two sexes apart- it has yet to seriously affect the upper classes because they live in their own little world feeding off the ignorant masses and loving all this distraction, as they do the nonsense over climate change. ‘Scapegoats r’ Us’ is their logo. The feminist agenda is an elitist con trick.
Since literacy is at an all time low in Britain -unless texting is regarded as literacy- few will appreciate the seriousness of the feminist attack on the Oxford dictionary. As if making so many things actionable as hate speech was not enough, feminists are campaigning to remove every single word or expression that might be used to denigrate or present women in a bad light. The only light that is allowed to shine over the great blob of women is a halo imposed by deranged feminists.
Remove the words, define and ban unpleasant comments as so called hate speech and the authorities control our ability to think and criticise our own oppression. This fits in well with the global modern liberal Western multi cultured diversity imposed on us all by an intolreant global supremacist upper class. This intolerant fascist ideology is corroding the West to assist the continued personal enrichment of a corrupt inbred hereditary elite.
By pretending that we have a collection of cultures and tolerant diversity, the authorities justify banning thoughts and expressions. Like the frogs, the plebians do not notice that the temperature is rising in more ways than one. Robert Cook September 23rd 2019
Climate change: Impacts ‘accelerating’ as leaders gather for UN talks Posted September 23rd 2019
By Matt McGrath Environment correspondent
- 22 September 2019
The signs and impacts of global warming are speeding up, the latest science on climate change, published ahead of key UN talks in New York, says.
The data, compiled by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), says the five-year period from 2014 to 2019 is the warmest on record.
Sea-level rise has accelerated significantly over the same period, as CO2 emissions have hit new highs.
The WMO says carbon-cutting efforts have to be intensified immediately.
- BBC Briefing: Your energy and climate facts guide
- Offshore wind expands at record low price
- Thousands join UK climate change protests
The climate statement is a pull-together of the latest science on the causes and growing impacts of unprecedented levels of warming seen in recent years.
Recognising that global temperatures have risen by 1.1 degrees C since 1850, the paper notes they have gone up by 0.2C between 2011 and 2015.
This is as a result of burgeoning emissions of carbon, with the amount of the gas going into the atmosphere between 2015 and 2019 growing by 20% compared with the previous five years.
Perhaps most worrying of all is the data on sea-level rise.
“Climate change due to us is accelerating and on a very dangerous course,” said Prof Brian Hoskins, chair of the Grantham Institute, Imperial College London, and professor of meteorology, University of Reading.
“We should listen to the loud cry coming from the schoolchildren. There is an emergency – one for action in both rapidly reducing our greenhouse gas emissions towards zero and adapting to the inevitable changes in climate.”
‘No fancy speeches’
The WMO report is meant to inform the special UN summit on climate change taking place in New York on Monday.
A range of political leaders will attend the one-day event, which is designed to be about action and not words, according to UN secretary general António Guterres.
“I told leaders not to come with fancy speeches, but with concrete commitments,” he said ahead of the meeting.
“People want solutions, commitments and action. I expect there will be an announcement and unveiling of a number of meaningful plans on dramatically reducing emissions during the next decade, and on reaching carbon neutrality by 2050.”
Greta Thunberg and other youth activists, fresh from marching on the streets of New York on Friday, will speak at the opening of the meeting.
While China, India, France, Germany and the UK will speak at the meeting, there is no place on the podium for Japan or Australia.
“It is highly important that we reduce greenhouse gas emissions, notably from energy production, industry and transport. This is critical if we are to mitigate climate change and meet the targets set out in the Paris Agreement,” said Petteri Taalas from the WMO.
“To stop a global temperature increase of more than 2 degrees C above pre-industrial levels, the level of ambition needs to be tripled. And to limit the increase to 1.5 degrees, it needs to be multiplied by five,” he said.

Editorial Comment This is a shortened version of the BBC article- the full report is on Internatioanl News. It is notable that the raging growth in world population is unmentioned, as always. It is a conventional truth that economic growth must keep pace with population growth and that pooerer countries have the right to move up to Western living standards, being allowed to migrate there freely if necessesary..
It is also a fact that Britain is backing the U.S over blaming Iran for the attack on an oil refinery. The U.S has gone fracking mad but still wants to control the world’s energy suppy. Neighbouring Brazil is burning the rainfores for pasture.
Eighty percent of the world’s population are non white but ordinary whites, who struggle to pay bills in countries like Britain get the blame. london is to have a thord London Airport and nobody is going to stop the jet set. There was a fierce response when environmental campaigners threatened to blockade Heathrow. So far no one has calculated what are the effects of so much political and media hot air on global warming.

Lincolnshire Fire Chief Bans Fireman Sam Mascot Posted September 19th 2019
Fire Chief Les Britzman of Lincolnshire Fire Brigade bans long standing Fireman Sam of Pontypandy Fire Brigade, childrens TV show, fame from being the forces recruiting mascot. It puts off women from joining the service he says.
Mrs Pink Pig has been similarly condemned by the politically correct campaign to prove that women can do anything a man can do, probably better as well.
As Piers Morgan commented on breakfast TV, the logical thing for Mr Britzman to do is to sack himself. Britain leads the world on political correctness and rule making. Europe would never survive without them.
Children’s Books Move on to the PC World
Children’s books have moved on to suit this age of diversity, where the least diverse thing is that the rich still get richer with the poor fighting over what is left over. Crime is an inevitable outcome- the rich peoples crimes are outside of official parlance or investigation.
So it somes to pass that children have a new exciting series to read, all about the lives of Topsy and Tim, two politically correct white children. In this slim volume. Topsy and Tim have an exciting visit from the police- I know what a visit from the police is like, certainly not exciting- I would call it invasive, terrifying and humiliating.
In the days when only boys- rich boys- were educated, the Jesuit teachers had a saying : ‘Give me the child until he is seven and I will give you the man.’ My studies in postgraduate psychology informed me that there is science behind this expression. So the system knows, ‘get them young.’
The police have a problem of losing consent, an inevitable outcome of the expanding police state and the police’s fixation on the lower orders. As Plebgate revealed, the police do not see themselves as common people. The politcians and media market them as heroes. The idea of police corruption and misconduct will never be seen in the world of Topsy and Tim.
Polite People Protestors outside Supreme Court Yesterday – Posted September 18th 2019
My concern in this case is that the Brexit choice was a fake, the elected government is not allowed the General Election it wants, mainstream media is biased and a person with a lot of money ( a lawyer with all the right connections ) and access to a crowd fund, is bringing a case in the name of democracy, as we see with these placards. Europe is an appalling mess, its cultural heritage symbolised by what is left of Notre Dame, mass immigration and refugees are very much the outcome of arrogant elitist British and U.S led wars on the Middle East and years of plundering Africa.
Liberals and feminists see Europe as a suitable escape valve for the overflow, condemning the underlass who paid for the carnage. Staying in Europe with no MEPs is a good outcome for an elite that only offered a Brexit vote because rich elitist politicians had been advised they would win. As a former maths teacher, the maths here are obvious and everything adds up. Now we have the so called independent judiciary involved, and law made by our so called representatives on the hoof, just to block a no deal Brexit. www.robertcookofnorthbucks.comAbout This Websiteuk.news.yahoo.com Here’s What Happened On Day One Of The Supreme Court Prorogation Hearing
Political Elite September 17th 2019
I never shared the view that leaving Europe would make life better for common people in this country. By common, I mean average, the proletariat if you like- the kind of people the police see themselves as being above a la Plebgate.
Britain, to my mind, has stoked up the effete pseudo liberalism that has infested Europe. Our Internationalist elite has. since 1066, had a sense of noblese oblige.
Margaret Thatcher’s 1979 election victory ushered in this age of shameless greed, selfishness, hypocrisy, global economics and rolling war. Class became a dirty and allegedly divisive word. Labour split between the Militant Tendency and the Social Democrats. Unions were castrated along with a new breed of upper middle class feminist politicians.
In those days, I was motivated to join the Labour Party, soon kicked out for criticising the self harming Coal Miners strike. I found a new political home in the Liberal Democrats in 1997, going for selection as prospective parlaimentary candidate. After selection I was offered courses on how to present myself and talk to voters. I knew then it was not for me. As it turned out when High Tory and old Etonian David Cameron failed to achive a majority, along came the LIB Dems to help out- all things to all people should be their slogan.
Britain’s elite have always felt their version of morality was God given, at least in my life time. There have been so many apparent splits, but the mentality has not changed. The elite has even more of the money, with mainstream media even more complex and sophisticated in its control- blaming the Russians when it goes wrong.
The Brexit refereundum was intended to reinforce Britain’s membership of the EU. It didn’t, so the elite backlash is working a con that leaving with a deal is actually leaving. The reality is that it suits them better, because they will still benefit while the common people will have no chance of electing MEPs to stand up for them. People who don’t like this outcome will be told ‘You voted for it.’
Mourning a Tyrant – September 12th 2019
The white liberal political/media elite backed Robert Mugabee and are now sanitising and air brushing his crimes. He was a vile man. Calling this nationalism is just another trick for damning nationalism. He was a murderous bullying brute-put in power by the British elite. Lessons are never learned. South Africa is no better.
But the British elite blame no one except the likes of long dead Cecil Rhodes for the appaling reality. Posh Oxford University students banning the Rhodes statue is typical virtue signalling. They are the future media and political consensus tyrants, while it is their ancestors who benefitted from the Empire- the building of which relied on lies, deceit and sacrifice of British white working class soldiers.
Mugabee was billions of time worse than Ian Smith. His henchmen burned blacks alive. He went to Switzwerland using stolen money from the country he bankrupted, not for medical treatment, but because the horrible old man could not stand being pushed out of power.
Through violence and femaine, Mugabee killed more blacks than Ian Smith- ever did or counted. This view is not compatible with our so called liberal PC elite who think women and blacks are never inherently bad. They are so nice and innocent, they only do bad things when led astray by white men -men who rape nice countries and nice women.
Must Respect Judges and the Law. No protests in UK please- September 12th 2019
I never saw leaving Europe as a solution to British elite corruption and economic bias towards their greed and loathing of the indigenous working classes.
Thatcherism broke the old post war so called Butskillism consensus in the name of progress and more profit. It evolved into the current cross party consensus that offered politicians careers, status, TV fame, and the vote winning lie of a Brexit referendum, confident that most of us did not care and the rest would vote remain.
This has exposed the bigger issue of the new elite cross party consenus toward passing off a Brexit deal as leaving. Lord Sumption, with his visibly awakwardsly heaving shoulders, was wheeled out again yesterdasy, by the BBC.
This was for yet another of his Reith lectures- named after the upper class Lord Reith who had the first BBC Director General job handed to him on a plate, decades ago.
It was an interesting talk, which I will review later today. For now, the key phrase of this talk was : ‘The public are demanding more freedom with the safety to do what they want. For this it is necesaary to increase the public space at the expense of the private space. This is particularly important in our diverse society.’ It means privacy is being reduced so that we have ever increasing State Power to watch and control us underlings- not the likes of Price Andrew for example.
Sumption told us that in 1919 there was one solicitor per thousand of the population. Today the ratio is one for every 400. ‘There are 50 stout volumes of British law.’ He said.
The City of London is the least regulated financial market in the world and higly lucrative for the international elite. Merkel accused Britain of hypocrisy over Euro law grumbles. She said Britain has been responsible for 80% of them. So, all in all, anyone who thinks leaving will make Britain less rule and law bound is mistaken. Brexit may not do much for the common people, but it would cost the elite and big business. it would also remove their shield of blaming Europe.
I just heard a Labour big whig saying we must respect our judges ( who are not out of touch, he said ) and the law as per the Scottish High Court judging closing Parliament illegal. A few days ago, we saw how the cross party elite rushed out a law to prevent Brexit. Respecting the law is about respecting the ruling rich elite and their power.
I am sure the Nazis insisted on common folk respecting the law. The penalty for not doing would be horrible. Laws are not inherently sacrosanct or benign and rely on popular consent, which is why the elite and their media fear any hint of populism, always ready to apply and/or change the law. Diversity is a big part of the con. Robert Cook September 12th 2019
Mainstream Media ignores Julian Assange case – September 11th 2019
Below are two recent reports concerning the case of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Sweden is a close ally of Britain. Britain is just as close to the U.S, which its’ elite spawned- George Washington was from a wealthy family of Northamptonshire landowners and involved with slavery.
Times change. Old crimes are forgotten and forgiven, while new ones are invented. Rape was redefined by PM Tony Blair and his government of former lawyers. All sorts of alleged inappropriate contact male to female may now be defined as rape, for the purposes of pleasing female voters and their worried fathers.
It is an intractable problem, with men guilty until proven guilty and even proven female liars escaping punishment. To achieve its ends of upping rape convictions, the British ruling elite have embraced the ‘Me Too’ culture.
This means when all else fails and there is no evidence to support allegations, all the police have to do is publicise the alleged rapist’s name, calling for more woment to come forward with their allegations. The ‘Cracker’ style theory is all damning, based on the myth that women never lie about anything, let alone men. So along they come. That is why the government will never give those accused of rape anonymity whist protecting the identity of accusers so taht more come forward in each case. It is a fantasists charter.
A long list of complainants made. The case goes to court, with a ‘bad character’ file as big as a pile of bricks. Witnesses will have the option of a video link to prevent them being upset, and the police will hope that another man bites the dust.
As I write, I am mindfull that our governmental system can knock out new laws and ratify them in 24 hours, so I run the risk that these words might break one of them. Publishing is now a dangerous business unless one is part of the mainstream, a stream that simply supports the consensus.
Julian Assange asserts that he did not commit rape but took refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy because he was being set up by the British and U.S for extradition. Some claim that the U.S interferred in the Ecuadorian elections in order to get a friendly governemnt to have Assange bad mouthed and kicked out so the Brits could have him jailed and extradited to the U.S on espionage charges.
Turns out all is coming true. A British magistrate called Assange a narcisist and jailed him while extradition papers were arranged. There was no media discussion of what Wilileaks had done to expose U.S war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan
It is possible that these crimes also involved U.S main ally Britain- source of the so called ‘dodgy dossier’ used to provoke the last Iraq War which has killed hundreds of thousands of people and destabilised the entire Middle East. Meanwhile, the British politcal system descends into chaos because the British elite are struggling to sell a proposed Brexit Deal as Brexit, rather than the con that it is.
I am not sure things have changed that much. The media has just got better at spin and propoganda, taking the elitist view that the masses are stupid, appeased by promises of more diversity- a world where ordinary women are told of all the wonderful things they could be, while ordinary men are told what they are unless they enter the no man’s land of gender reassignment.
This definition of men tends to the ‘all men are potential rapists, liars and wife beaters. The defintion of women is that they are all angels guiding men and always at risk of abuse. If anything goes wrong it is not their fault. Women like Pamela Anderson are supposed to be there bringing out the worst in men to help condemn them. They are not supposed to have a brain and stand up for men like Julian Assange, a so called threat to our national interest.
When I hear the latter phrase, I substitute class for national. This case is about class interest. Assange is back in solitary confinement and will, I fear be broken before he is extradited. That is what British Democracy is about. Meanwhile, the British elite, with media poodles lapping at their heels, have the audacity to condemn Iraq for jailing two more British women ‘spies’ . The same media hails Hong Kong’s rebel leader Joshua Wong for his role in so called freedom fighting- an alleged spontaneous human rights erruption. Anyone looking for the strings and puppet masters is a deranged conspiracy theorist. It is all very W-ong, in my view. Robert Cook September 11th 2019
More witnesses interviewed in Julian Assange Swedish rape case

Swedish prosecutors have interviewed two new witnesses over a 2010 rape allegation against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
A total of seven witnesses had been interviewed over the summer, the prosecution authority said Monday.
“We have mainly re-interviewed those individuals who were interviewed in 2010, although two of the persons interviewed have not previously been interviewed,” the deputy director of public prosecution, Eva-Marie Persson, said.
The Swedish investigation concerns events that took place in August 2010 when a Swedish woman accused Assange of rape after meeting him at a WikiLeaks conference in the capital, Stockholm.
Assange, 48, has always denied the allegation.
The statute of limitations in the case expires in August 2020.
How to proceed?
“Once we have analysed the interviews, I will decide how to proceed with the case. The investigation may then be discontinued or I may decide to conduct further inquiries,” Persson said.
“If I make the assessment that the next step is to interview Julian Assange, I will issue a European Investigation Order, in which case I shall write to the British authorities with a request to conduct an interview.”
Assange has been held at a top-security British prison since April after police sensationally dragged him out of the Ecuadoran embassy in London, where he had been holed up since 2012 to avoid an extradition order to Sweden, where he was wanted for questioning.
Assange was subsequently sentenced to 50 weeks in prison for breaching bail conditions when he took refuge in the embassy.
Following his arrest, Swedish authorities reopened their 2010 rape investigation, which had been closed in 2017 with the argument it wasn’t possible to proceed with the investigation as Assange could not be reached.
Prosecutors then asked a Swedish court to order Assange detained in Sweden in order to facilitate their investigation. But the court refused the request, saying he was already imprisoned in Britain and their probe could proceed in other ways.
Assange is currently also the subject of a US extradition request, where he is facing a total of 18 charges, most of which relate to obtaining and disseminating classified information over the publishing of military documents and diplomatic cables through the website WikiLeaks.

Pamela Anderson on The View: Watch her clap back at Meghan McCain regarding Julian Assange
Pamela Anderson sat down with the ladies of The View and things got a little heated at the table. Her friendship with Julian Assange has been widely publicized, and it was what set off the back and forth that viewers saw at the table earlier today.
While talking to Sunny Hostin, Pamela Anderson revealed that Julian Assange inspires her to be a more effect activist. She was full of compliments about him, something that led to contempt from Meghan McCain when it was her turn to talk.
Bercow the Controller September 10th 2019
If anyone ever doubted that Berow is a bully, yesterday in Parliament should remove any doubts. After a long winded series of psychophantic accolades from the floor, Bercow went into an aside about how words hurt. He mentioned that members of the public had said nasty things about MPs who had been blocking Brexit.
He said this might get worse, because of ‘What we are about to do.’ A debate about getting hold of Boris Johnson’s private correspondence and e mails followed. The debate was led by slick fellow Bucks MP the Rt Hon Dominic Greav of snooty Beaconsfield– a silver tongued upper class former Attorney General and barrister.
Bercow’s tone was conspiratorial and says a lot about his conduct during the Brexit debacle. It should be clear that the intention is to disguise remaining in the EU as leaving with a deal.
I started out as a remainer who thought leaving was absurd. However, in the light of all this, I am even more fearful of the corrupt British Police State and its malign influence, not just on us lower orders, but the common people of Europe. Yesteday’s performance was redolent of the last days of the Reichstag in pre war Germany. Comment by Robert Cook
Hate Speech Posted September 10th 2019
The British elite use this device to protect themselves from criticism by barely literate down trodden mass. With elite education it is easy for them to patronise and ignore the miserries and frustrations of who they see as lower orders, when it suits them. In Britain these laws have been used to jail those who say nasty things to or about police officers, politicians and Muslims.
The rules do not seem to apply when anyone from these three groups say nasty things about the lower orders or those aspiring to represent them. Hence it was alright for ‘right on’ feminist comedian (sic) Joe Brand to joke that acid might have been a better choice of liquid to throw over Nigel Farage.
The rules on hatre speech in the United States are a little more relaxed and as follows:
The Legalities Of Hate Speech
Often discussed on a variety of platforms, hate speech and the legalities associated with it can be a hotly debated topic. Hate speech is loosely defined by laypersons as any offensive speech targeted toward people based on race, religion, sexual orientation, or gender. Opinions about how such speech should be handled by legal authorities vary. Few seem to be familiar with the actual legalities of hate speech, and it is not uncommon for it to be confused with other crimes where hatred is believed to be a motivating factor.
Which Laws Govern Hate Speech?
In the United States, there are no laws against hate speech. Due to rights protected by the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment, a person can say just about anything he or she wants to another person or group. By itself, such speech is allowed to take place without penalty under the law.
A person hurling insults, making rude statements, or disparaging comments about another person or group is merely exercising his or her right to free speech. This is true even if the person or group targeted by the speaker is a member of a protected class. According to U.S. law, such speech is fully permissible and is not defined as hate speech.
President Trump: When You Leave the Middle East, Do It with a Big Bang
by Efraim Inbar
The Jerusalem Post
August 25, 2019
President Donald Trump plans to withdraw the US military contingent stationed in northeast Syria. This may be implemented slowly, but the US troops eventually will be brought home. Trump’s disengagement from Syria and Iraq is in sync with American attempts to reach an understanding with the Taliban that will allow an honorable US withdrawal from Afghanistan as well.
Those foreign policy decisions seem to constitute a part of a larger trend to reduce US involvement in the Middle East, a trend that began during the tenure of president Barack Obama. This reflects weariness of foreign involvements, a weariness engendered by US involvement in two unsuccessful wars (Iraq and Afghanistan). Reinforcing this is the diminishing importance of the oil-rich Middle East to the US. American focus on the Chinese challenge also reinforces this. In addition, Trump’s isolationist impulses play a role in lowering America’s military profile abroad.
Efraim Inbar is president of the Jerusalem Institute for Strategy and Security and a fellow at the Middle East Forum.
Editorial Comment The Middle East is the land of religious mania and oil wealth. The British elite, with their sharp dealers and working class soldiers played it for years. After World War Two, the U.S.A bundled in. The intention has never been to bring democracy, That cannot be achieved in theocracies.
The Jews have much to complain about, much to fear and much to be proud of, but it is hard to see a resolution with the Islamic people who derived their Koran and belief system from tthe Jews- Judaism. Thus it is inevitable that there will be plenty more big bangs in the region, with more disasters that no sane person would look foward to.
But there is a point where religious faith and sanity part company. I fear that point has been reached with Israel and its neighbours. Hence the continous prodding of Iran because of their support for Assad, a man and regime hated by Israel. It was the German philospher Goethe who said ‘you have to be a good hater.’
Oh whatever happened to the hippies- they either starved or sold out. So who is going to sell out in the Middle East? No one because all conflicting parties believe God is on their side- all good for the multi billion dollar arms industry. For more on this, dig out an old viideo/CD of Peter Sellars in ‘Dr Strangelove.’ Jewish Fascist learned much from the ‘Holocaust’.

Super Pacs August 27th 2019
by Tom Murse Updated July 03, 2019
A super PAC is a modern breed of a political action committee that’s allowed to raise and spend unlimited amounts of money from corporations, unions, individuals, and associations to influence the outcome of state and federal elections. The rise of the super PAC was heralded as the beginning of a new era in politics in which elections would be determined by the vast sums of money flowing into them, leaving average voters with little to no influence.
The term “super PAC” is used to describe what is technically known in federal election code as an “independent expenditure-only committee.” They are relatively easy to create under federal election laws. There is about 2,400 super PACs on file with the Federal Election Commission. They raised about $1.8 billion and spent $1.1 billion in the 2016 election cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
Function of a Super PAC
The role of a super PAC is similar to that of a traditional political action committee. A super PAC advocates for the election or defeat of candidates for federal office by purchasing television, radio and print advertisements and other media. There are conservative super PACs and liberal super PACs.
Difference Between a Super PAC and Political Action Committee
The most important difference between a super PAC and traditional candidate PAC is in who can contribute, and in how much they can give.
Candidates and traditional candidate committees can accept $2,700 from individuals per election cycle. There are two election cycles a year: one for the primary, the other for the general election in November. That means they can take in a maximum of $5,400 a year — half in the primary, and half in the general election.
Candidates and traditional candidate committees are prohibited from accepting money from corporations, unions, and associations. Federal election code prohibits those entities from contributing directly to candidates or candidate committees.
Super PACs, though, have no limitations on who contributes to them or how much they can spend on influencing an election. They can raise as much money from corporations, unions, and associations as they please and spend unlimited amounts on advocating for the election or defeat of the candidates of their choice.
Some of the money that flows into super PACs cannot be traced. That money is often referred to as “dark money.” Individuals can mask their identities and the money they give by contribution first to outside groups including nonprofit 501[c] groups or social welfare organizations that go on to spend tens of millions of dollars on political ads.
Restrictions on Super PACs
The most important restriction prohibits any super PAC from working in conjunction with a candidate it’s supporting. According to the Federal Election Commission, super PACs cannot spend money “in concert or cooperation with, or at the request or suggestion of, a candidate, the candidate’s campaign or a political party.”
History of Super PACs
Super PACs came into existence in July 2010 following two key federal court decisions that found limitations on both corporate and individual contributions to be unconstitutional violations of the First Amendment right to free speech.
In SpeechNow.org v. Federal Election Commission, a federal court found restrictions on individual contributions to independent organizations that seek to influence elections to be unconstitutional. And in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the U.S. Supreme Court decided that limits on corporate and union spending to influence elections were also unconstitutional.
“We now conclude that independent expenditures, including those made by corporations, do not give rise to corruption or the appearance of corruption,” Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote.
Combined, the rulings allowed individuals, unions and other organizations to contribute freely to political action committees that are independent of political candidates.
Super PAC Controversies
Critics who believe money corrupts the political process say the court rulings and creation of super PACs opened the floodgates to widespread corruption. In 2012, U.S. Sen. John McCain warned: “I guarantee there will be a scandal, there is too much money washing around politics, and it’s making the campaigns irrelevant.”
McCain and other critics said the rulings allowed wealthy corporations and unions to have an unfair advantage in electing candidates to federal office.
In writing his dissenting opinion for the Supreme Court, Justice John Paul Stevens opined of the majority: “At bottom, the Court’s opinion is thus a rejection of the common sense of the American people, who have recognized a need to prevent corporations from undermining self-government since the founding, and who have fought against the distinctive corrupting potential of corporate electioneering since the days of Theodore Roosevelt.”
Another criticism of super PACs arises from the allowance of some nonprofit groups to contribute to them without disclosing where their money came from, a loophole that allows so-called dark money to flow directly into elections.
Super PAC Examples
Super PACs spend tens of millions of dollars in presidential races.
Some of the most powerful include:
- Right to Rise, a super PAC that spent more than $86 million supporting former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s failed bid for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.
- Conservative Solutions PAC, which spent nearly $56 million supporting U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio’s failed bid for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.
- Priorities USA Action, which spent more than $133 million supporting Hillary’s Clinton‘s bid for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016 and backed President Barack Obama in 2012. Another prominent pro-Hillary super PAC is Ready for Hillary.
- New Day for America, which spent more than $11 million supporting Ohio Gov. John Kasich‘s campaign for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.
Editorial Comment Super Pacs have a lot of influence in U.S politics, helped by wealthy Jewish donors. From the U.S down, Western style democracies are a sham, but feminists go along with a system as long as it deludes them, and helps them to delude others, into thinking it is mainly about their rights and fight for equality.
To paraphrase Lincoln. ‘You only have to fool some of the people some of the time.’ So get them young, especially ambitious or frustrated young women, who loved it when deadpan Hilary Clinton ( the clue to her is in the eyes ) shrieked ‘Human Rights are Women’s Rights and Women’s Rights are Human Rights’. The only time she laughs, I suspect, is when she is going to the bank. Charles Close August 27th 2019
Police do not have a particularly dangerous job. August 19th 2019
I get sick and tired of hearing what heroes the police are every time one is hurt, or the rare event of them being killed. As someone on the receiving end of their malice, lies and cover ups, I cannot be expected to like them.
As a commercial driver, my life is seriously at risk very day. Drving north on the A41 back from busy Essex and London today, I saw a badly wrecked Bidfood lorry.
Few people appreciate truck drivers until the goods don’t arrive. It may seem strange that I left the cosey world of media and teaching for trucking, but hopefully all will be revealed in due course.
One thing I would not do in my current work- which I have done for the past 12 years- is deliberately attempt to stop a moving vehicle by standing in front of it, or expect to be called a hero if I did.
To call the police heroes on the basis of an officer being run down by a car is no more reasonable than calling them all killers/liars on the basis of what Stephen Harwood did when he caused the death of innocent Ian Tomlinson, the attempted cover up that followed or when Cresida Dick gave the order for her minions to shoot to kill Charles deMendez. I am sure comfortable people with so much to lose will disagree and boycott this site.
My police readers will download my comments as evidence of my bad deranged attitude toward them, whilst continuining to avoid my questions. No doubt the strait jacket is waiting for me.
This is the most serious aspect of British policing, i.e brainwashing the public into believing we need more of them, when most are engaged on intelligence gathering, sureveilance and dealing with domestics caused by the collapes of family life in Britain.
Meanwhile, the prime suspects in the recent death of a TVP officer are travellers, living on a campsite where the police tend to avoid because of the closed community the travellers live in. That is multi culture. Farmer Tony Martin was jailed for shooting one of the travellers who was robbing his home.
I have also worked on farms and in construction, so speak from experience.
The 5 most dangerous jobs in the UK including farmers, plumbers and lorry drivers
In 2012, 148 Brits were killed at work, and thousands more die every year from workplace illnesses like lung cancer. Don’t suffer in silence, make a claim…
- 08:00, 9 JUN 2014
- Updated10:39, 21 JUL 2014
The risk of accident, injury and death in the workplace is surrounded by myth and misconception, so here are a few sobering facts.
In 2012, 148 people were killed at work in the UK – that’s one worker in every 200,000, and nearly three people every week.
It seems a lot, but averaged out over the last five years, Britain’s workplace fatality rate is the lowest across all EU member states.
In 2012 there were 78,222 serious injuries to employees, this is in addition to 175,000 injuries requiring more than seven days off work.
Each year, over 4,500 UK citizens die from lung cancer and respiratory illness, mostly due to having worked with asbestos in the past.
Thousands more perish from other occupational cancers caused by exposure to chemicals and other environmental hazards.
In fact, it’s estimated that some 13,000 people in the UK die each year from long-term illnesses that are at least partly caused by their work.
Asbestos tops the list of causes, with the next biggest being silica, diesel engine exhaust, and mineral oils.
So, while most of us get up for work every morning with a degree of confidence that we’ll be coming home again in the evening, it’s by no means a certainty.
Top 5 most dangerous jobs in the UK
While only 1% of the workforce is employed in agriculture, the industry accounts for roughly 20% of workplace fatalities.
Approximately 33 farmers and farm workers are killed on the job each year.
Although only about 5% of UK employees work in construction, it accounts for 22% of fatal industrial injuries and 10% of reported major injuries.
Nearly a quarter of all workplace fatalities are the result of falling from a height. 60% of fatal falls occur in the building industry.
3. Scaffolders, roofers, and steeplejacks
The Manufacturing Industry represents about 10% of the British workforce but is responsible for 25% of deaths, and 16% of reported injuries to employees.
And around 2,000 occupational cancer deaths each year result from past exposure to toxic substances in the manufacturing sector.
4. Waste and recycling
It may employ only about 0.6% of the workforce, but it’s responsible for 10 fatalities, roughly 7% of the total, and 2.8% of reported injuries.
A third of the fatalities in this sector are due to employees being struck by vehicles.
5. Road drivers
Traffic accidents are responsible for a high proportion of injuries and death in society in general, and work related casualties are no exception, with around 25% of road fatalities involving a driver who is at work.
The GMB estimates that work vehicles are involved in over 54,000 crashes in the UK each year – about 150 every day.
Serious Assaults on British Police Officers August 13th 2019
There were 10,399 serious assaults on British police officers at work in the last 12 months, representing a 37% rise, according to official figures.
Mainstream media and police officialdom explain this as a sign of increasing violence, which it may be to some extent. But these people are always tardy when it comes to explaining why Britain is more violent. I don’t think it is due to lack of police officers or that more stop and search will make much difference.
Stop and search has always been problematic in the post World War Two era. This has much to do with issues of policing predominantly immigrant communities. From the get go, white police officers revealed issues with Britain’s black communities.
Modern police training may be high on the PCs having PC jargon, but poor hard pressed immigrant and working class white communities tend to disttrust the police as they struggle to make a living and survive. During the 1985 Coal Miners strike, Metropolitan Police officers ridiculed striking miners on the picket line by waving their overtime pay slips at them.
My cousin was a police sergeant based in a coal mining area at the time, Stoke on Trent. Those were dark days and a Thatcher revolution for the police and so much else.
Being a graduate is not what it used to be, with even remedial students getting on the continous assessment courses, and many subjects low on intellectual requirements.
However, simple minded students, flourshing their credentials will be welcome in Boris Johnson’s ‘New Model Army’ of police officers, possibly over confident and not helped by a police training programme which, for many years, has encouraged the police to keep emotional distance from the public- unless they are rich members of the public. That is why the police officers involved in Plebgate were so upset when a toff from the government did not show them respect.
Mainstream media and police top brass milking the terrible assaults on two police officers in the last few days, claiming all cops are heroes is not going to help. On a day to day basis lower class people are treated abrasively by the police. Corruption at high level and cover ups are also issues in a system wide open for insider abuse.
This website does not condone crime of any kind, least of all violence towards anyone, but the police are not little white knights in shining armour. They are well paid officials who like asking questions , working on the new princiole of guilty until proven guilty, but they are very shy about answering questions about their conduct and misconduct. They routinely withold evidence, to get convictions and meet targets.
The new Independent Office for Police Conduct is just a revamp of the old IPCC nd is no more than a mailing service for the police.
Epstein Lates August 13th 2019
It is being acknowledged by U.S authorities and media that Jeffrey Epstein could not have killed himself using any equipment or structure in his cell for that purpose.
A lot of rich and pwoerful people travelled on the Epstein jet, enjoying parties on board and at his luxury homes, where there were always lots of young attractive girls. Epstein was protesting his innocence and angry with his treatment.
As a member of the elite he could have easily turned on his old cronies, blaming them for his predicament and to save his own skin.
Bill Clinton speny years fighting off sex assault claims and the Monica Lewinsky affair nearly pulled him down. The ‘little black dress’ with semen stains was a tricky one for Bill to explain, but he has a way with words and Hilary to protect him.
Meanwhile, I wonder how Prince Andrew is bearing up.
Prince Andrew faces new Jeffrey Epstein Anguish
August 11th 2019
How on earth can such a key prisoner – with obvious links to the U.S great and good, and others, as the image of the late Jeffrey Epstein with Prince Andrew here shows- commit suicide in a cell.? Cells are supposed to be suicide proof and are video monitored- don’t ask how I know.
This guy was considered a suicide risk. He was also a potential target because he knew the rich guys who were buying sex with underage girls. His death is reminiscent of Dr Stephen Ward and the John Profumo affair.
I know what the Anglo Americn elite are capable of. As my old history teacher, John Skinner, used to keep reminding me: ‘He who sups with the Devil should use a long spoon.’
How Britain can’t let go of Hong Kong August 11th 2019
BRITAIN has vowed “unwavering” support for protesters demonstrating against Chinese rule in Hong Kong but urged against violent actions.
Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt promised to continue his support after China warned Britain not to interfere in the affairs of its former colony.
The foreign ministry in Beijing responded to Mr Hunt after he issued a statement reiterating support for the protests.
A spokesman was quoted as saying that Britain needed to “know its place and stop interfering” in what was a “purely internal affair” for China.
Hong Kong became a British colony at the end of the First Opium War in 1842.
Britain obtained a 99-year lease for the strategically important territory which expired in 1997.
Since then, Hong Kong has been part of China, but kept laws allowing citizens more freedoms than those enjoyed in the mainland.
Protesters forced their way into Hong Kong’s parliament following outrage about a controversial new law which would allow enforced extraditions to mainland China.
|The Portugese had been the first European power involved in establishing relations in the area. They managed to create a trading factory and concession at Macao from 1557. There were many goods that could be acquired relatively cheaply and sold for many more times its price back in Europe; silk, spices, tea, etc… The other European nations wanted to get involved and to take a cut of the huge profits that were being made by the Portugese. |
The English East India Company sent their first ship to Macao in 1635 but found it difficult and prohibitive to engage trade with the Portugese. Trading directly with the Chinese was not much easier. Trade was restricted to the port of Canton where English traders had to deal with one of 13 merchants selected by the Chinese government. These were referred to as the ‘Hong’. For the Eighteenth Century, the English East India Company had a monopoly of British trade from Asia at least which in many ways counter-balanced the Chinese trading restrictions. However, in 1833 the British government ended the East India Company monopoly and traders rushed to fill the vacuum.
These traders would become known as Taipans and they competed voraciously to get hold of the precious Chinese commodities. Unfortunately, they did not have many products that were of interest to the Chinese – silver was preferred but was in short supply. Therefore, many of the Taipans resorted to using Opium as a trading commodity. The Chinese government was concerned at the debilitating effects of the drug and wished to prevent the inflow of Opium into the country. To this end, in 1838 they appointed a new Imperial High Commissioner to Canton, Lin Tse-hsu, to stamp out the importation of Opium. The British traders were to use his policies as an excuse to force the Chinese government to relax its restrictive trade practices.
The so-called Opium War started in 1839 and lasted until 1842. The Royal Navy was able to impose its will on the unsophisticated Chinese fleet. As a result, the British were able to make demands upon the Chinese government before lifting their blockades and stopping the bombardment of important ports. The Chinese agreed to cede the rocky island of Hong Kong to Britain as a free port with rights of trade to the mainland. In fact, both the Chinese and British negotiators got into trouble. Kishen, the Chinese negotiator, was blamed for ceding inviolable Chinese territory to the foreigners. Whilst Charles Eliot, the British negotiator, was lambasted for acquiring such an unpromising rocky outcrop with virtually no indiginous population and no history as a port whatsoever. Over time though, the acquisition would prove invaluable to the British.
| On taking possession of the island, it was estimated that the population was no more than 1,500 who mostly made their living from fishing. Disaster seemed to afflict the early colony especially when a number of Typhoons devastated the flimsy wooden structures that had been hastily thrown up. However, the increase in trading activity continued to act as a spur to the growth and development of the fledgeling colony. By just 1844, the population had increased twelve-fold to 19,000. It was not just British traders who were attracted to the colony. Other European traders took advantage of the free port and ease of establishing businesses on the island. Chinese labourers from the mainland were attracted to work on the infrastructure and for the companies themselves. |
The island also became a means of emigration for many Chinese who could board ships for Singapore, Malaya, California or Indonesia. The Tai Ping Rebellions brought another wave of refugees who sought to escape the instability of the mainland. By 1861 the population had grown to
120,000 and space was beginning to be an issue.
The British sought to expand their foothold, and the Second Opium War with China provided just such an opportunity. In 1860, the Peking convention was signed which ceded to Britain the Kowloon peninsula (up to Boundary Street) and Ngon Sun Chau. Britain had now acquired land on the mainland of China itself – and this was to be in perpetuity. This provided some additional space for building and allowed the port facilities to expand.
Although it was still not enough and in 1898 the British leased the New Territories together with 235 islands for a period of 99 years. The beginning half of the Twentieth Century saw further turmoil in China as the 1912 revolution occurred and a period of political instability ensued. The Japanese invasions saw yet more refugees head towards the British colony. By 1939, the population had risen to 1.6 million.
‘UNWAVERING’ SUPPORT FROM BRITISH EMPIRE LAUGHED AT.
The Chinese spokesman said the Beijing government was “extremely dissatisfied” with the way Britain had “continuously gesticulated” about Hong Kong.
Editorial Comment It is interesting to contrast the British Government’s attitude to protestors at home in Britain. Hong Kong is a hot bed of financial corruption with many fearing extradition to China. Britain is soft on finacial corruptio and has much sympathy with money making Hong Kong. Britain’s imperialist die hard elite hide behind human rights and pro democracy rhetoric.
I offer no judgement, just ridicule for the hypoctits who run Little Britain as if it is still an imperial force. No amount of multi cultural msytification should be allowed to hide the truth about this island. The only culture that matters here is the ruling one, with its love of money and divide and rule methods.
Shipping Companies abandon British flag July 24th 2019
Stenna Shipping line et al are considering abandoning the British flag of convenience in the wake of their tanker being impounded by the Iranian government. They are unhappy that Britain’s depleted Royal Navy cannot protect shipping. At the moment 4,500 ships fly the famous British Red Ensign, with ships registered in Britain, The Cayman Islands or Gibraltar. The attraction has been that the taxpayer funded Royal Navy was always there to protect the big business of international merchant shipping.
Polly Toynbee of the Guardian wrote the following piece of Britain’s record in merchant shipping back on August 30th 2016- Guardian.
Malaviya Twenty has been moored in Great Yarmouth docks since December. To look at, it’s no rustbucket, kept in good shape by its Indian crew – but when I visited a week ago, they hadn’t been paid by the ship’s owners for all those months. This is a story about the fate of shipping in Britain – an often forgotten industry, though we depend on it for over 90% of our imports and exports, and for most of what is stacked on supermarket shelves.
Waiting for their wages, the 12 crew members spent their time growing vegetables – onions, garlic, cabbages and tomatoes – in pots on the deck. The company hoped they would give up, but they are holding out for their pay. “They’re trying to wear us down,” says one officer: they want no names printed for fear of blacklisting. He can’t go home without his pay as he has taken out loans to keep his family.
Why was this ship contracted here in the first place? That reveals much about British shipping and the fate of seafarers. This is an Indian supply ship sailing between the British coast and UK offshore oil rigs and wind farms. Despite this, their foreign owners need not pay the UK minimum wage: rates are often a third less than for British sailors.
The trade union Nautilus International,which often helps stranded crews, has stepped in, calling in the UK’s Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA). This means the ship is officially prevented from leaving port until the men are paid.
Its sister ship Malaviya Seven has been similarly holed up in Aberdeen. This crew were owed a total of $380,000 (£290,000) in June: some has been paid following MCA intervention, but Paul Keenan of Nautilus says $200,000 is still owing. The ship, worth millions, could be sold off to pay its debts.
The shipping industry is a prime example of what an unfettered free market does to a workforce, of globalisation at its reddest in tooth and claw. Flying flags of convenience, British shipping has been allowed to register in low-pay, low-regulation countries. That exodus took off in the wicked 1980s when the number of British merchant navy officers was cut by two-thirds, replaced by cheaper foreign staff. Now only a third of British-owned shipping is registered under a British flag.
Can Britain rule its own waves again after Brexit, restoring its ships to the UK flag with decent pay and safety conditions? No chance, since Britain has been the strongest lobby in Europe against reform. Of EU nations, Britain protects its own sailors least from unfair, undercutting competition, and issuing most “certificates of equivalent competency” to foreign mariners so they can work on its ships.
The three politicians who now command the Brexit negotiations are all extreme free marketeers. Once outside the EU, don’t expect welfare, wages and working conditions to be high among their priorities as they attempt to strike new trade deals. Indeed, the risk is that after Brexit shipping companies based in the UK will try to drop existing EU regulations. Others may leave because they need an EU base: Stena Line warned immediately after the referendum that it might re-flag its UK vessels.
A manning directive to ensure that ships sailing between EU states are paid and regulated under EU law has failed to gain approval in Brussels for years, defeated by ship owners wanting to hire cheaper non-EU crews.
Compare this with how the US protects its industry: all ships working between US ports must be US-built and crewed. Many countries do likewise. But in Britain and the EU it’s a global free-for-all, where the cheapest contract wins. The result is a collapse in the British-registered shipping industry, now only 0.8% of the total worldwide. Why would owners pay British wages when they can hire crews elsewhere for much less?
There has been a steep drop in training British mariners: companies are obliged to train some cadets, but then rarely take them on. More than 10 keen, well-qualified young people apply for every merchant navy training place; but despite promising good apprenticeships, the government has just cut funding for maritime training. Numbers are falling fast, though thousands of experienced officers are needed onshore as harbourmasters and marine pilots.
The City employs 15,000 of these trained officers in marine insurance, who arbitrate in causes of accidents and other shipping specialisms. A government report last year dodged all the real issues, but it did warn of the urgent need “to replenish and develop the skills needed to maintain our position as a world-leading maritime centre”. The 90,000 UK seafarers of 40 years ago have now become only 19,000.
In Britain, few employees are as brutally undercut as these. Ship owners fly foreign flags of convenience that allow them to fire British crews and hire others from the poorest countries, paying the lowest rates in a race to the bottom. Meanwhile the government turns a blind eye.
The sea has ebbed in the national consciousness, though it matters as much as ever to an island. Its romance still draws keen recruits, but it’s a dangerous workplace, with climate change causing more violent storms. Britain depends for everything on this buccaneering industry, yet wages are undercut and jobs lost through aggressive globalisation. As with the equally essential road transport industry, the state steps back where it should step up.
Two days ago Malaviya Twenty’s owners paid off some of the crew, who are flying home – though the ship will be detained until all wages are fully paid. And as the Nautilus union protests: “The exploitation of these crews directly undermines our own shipping industry with unfair competition.”
British politics focuses too little on the reality of working lives. Many who voted Brexit overestimated the impact of migration on their own low pay, or the lack of housing and public services. But here’s a case of crude, obvious labour-market abuse by employers substituting cheaper foreign staff.
If one company does it and undercuts the rest, then all must follow suit in bidding for contracts. Only government intervention can prevent a race to the bottom that is eroding established working rights in so many sectors.
Britain’s Cameron appointed puppet ambassador to U.S resigns after secret memo leaks- The British Elite love their secrets, and still call Britain a democracy. July 10th 2019.
Kim Darroch has resigned as British ambassador to the United States, following soured relations with the US President’s administration.
Daroch has the typical upper middle class background of the ambassador and senior British Civil Service. Darroch was born in the village of South Stanley in County Durham on 30 April 1954. He was educated at exclusive Abingdon School and at Durham University (Hatfield College), from where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in zoology in 1975.
Mr Darroch reportedly said Mr Trump’s presidency could “crash and burn” and “end in disgrace”, in the cache of secret cables and briefing notes sent back to Britain seen by the newspaper.
|Gove: Brexit might not happen on 31 October|
| Conservative leadership candidate Michael Gove says the latest Brexit deadline – 31 October – is “arbitrary” and he is “not wedded” to it. But he said any delay – in order to pass a deal – would be a matter of weeks, not months. Other candidates, including Boris Johnson, say the UK must leave the EU by the deadline, deal or no deal. The UK was supposed to leave on 29 March, but Parliament did not approve Mrs May’s withdrawal agreement.|
