Russia Is Preparing For War

Russia is planning for battle.

Tory Mark Lancaster declared the Kremlin is getting set for battle after learning lessons from current conflicts it has fought and the new head of the Army advised of an existential threat to Britain as he outlined the power of Vladimir Putin’s army.

Armed Forces Minister Mr Lancaster became the latest senior Conservative to voice concerns over increasing Kremlin hostility.

All you have to do is rotate the globe and look at the world from Russia’s viewpoint and examine how they might view threats, and whilst we don’t know whether they view conflict as unavoidable, they’re planning for it and Moscow’s use of cyber operations and proxies points to the fact that they don’t intend to get their hands dirty.

Although there’s another argument that Russia has decided that they’re not ready for major combat operations, that they’ve learned the lessons from Georgia and the relevant breakdown of their occupation of Crimea, and are now investing hard in the future of their current forces.

On this evidence, it’s a myth to believe that Russia won’t use hard power at some point in the future and they’re fuelled concerns about the threat from the Kremlin.

Russia now isn’t a status quo power, it’s in reconsideration mode and its purpose is presently equalled by a growing stockpile of long-range precision abilities.

The rules-based method is underpinned by power predominantly hard power and Putin doesn’t value countries with weak Armed Forces.

Looking to Russia’s current military operations, and the nerve agent attack on a former KGB agent in Wiltshire which was blamed on the Kremlin and their lack of regard for vulnerability, particularly military weakness, hasn’t altered one bit, as we’ve become more sceptical about the need or advantage of intervention, Georgia, Ukraine, Syria, Montenegro, Libya, and Salisbury.

And while increasing cyber forces was essential, regular forces were also necessary.

The misplaced understanding that there’s no immediate or existential threat to the United Kingdom and that even if there was it could only occur at long notice is wrong, along with a blemished idea that current hardware and size are irrelevant in countering Russian defeat, and that the answer rests somehow in disruptive technology, and that the faster we can field those technologies, the less useful the conventional means to combat power become as pointers of national control.

Of course, Putin is a pretty alarming character and apparently quite trigger happy and unpredictable but in a rather smart way. Although I’m not sure why the United Kingdom would be a threat to them and his military, although America might have something to do with that.

Donald Trump is making plans for a summit with Vladimir Putin throughout the US President’s excursion to Europe next month, it has been declared as the head of the British Army warns the Russian leader is preparing his troops for battle.

US officials are hoping the meeting will take place either before the NATO summit in Brussels on July 11 or after Donald Trump’s visit to Britain, which follows shortly after and the news has boosted concerns over Trump’s commitment to NATO and his visit to the United Kingdom.

It comes as Chief of the General Staff General Mark Carleton-Smith, as well as a top Defence Minister, warned that Putin is ramping up his troops for battle.

I would think that all countries equip their troops for the unfortunate, that’s why it’s called an Army but what if Putin is getting ready for war, what is the EU doing to prepare for that possible conflict with Russia? Apart from blocking Brexit and calling Donald Trump names.

America’s Chilling Message

Donald Trump has intensified his discourse on illegal immigration as outrage mounts at his immigration’s policy of dividing parents and children on the US border with Mexico and in an unfriendly tweet, the President stated illegal immigrants are pouring into the United States, and his political opponents wanted them to infest the country.

WhiteHouse-Faded-1387x720

The White House’s harsh zero-tolerance immigration strategy has seen thousands of children segregated from their parents and kept in enclosures as their families face criminal prosecution.

One report alleged a woman from Honduras had her daughter taken away as she was breastfeeding and when the woman resisted, she was handcuffed but the President has repeatedly and wrongly accused the policy of severing families at the border of his political adversaries, stigmatizing it a Democratic policy and he tweeted that Democrats were the problem.

He stated that they don’t care about crime and want illegal immigrants, no matter how bad they may be, to pour into and infest the country and he said that they can’t win on their terrible policies, so they view them as potential voters.

But illegal immigrants can’t vote in the United States.

He went on to explain the constraints of families crossing the border, which the Department of Homeland Security dismissed was an official policy, as a policy and he said that people must always be arrested that are coming into the country illegally.

Of the 12,000 children, 10,000 are being sent by their parents on a pretty dangerous journey, and just 2000 are with their parents, many of whom have attempted to access the country unlawfully on many occasions.

Plus he went on to suggest his administration’s hands were bound on whether to arrest and divide families up at the border, which is incorrect.

United_States_Capitol_-_west_front.jpgHe wrote that the best opportunity ever for Congress is to change the ridiculous and obsolete laws on immigration and that they must have strong border security and under US law, accessing the country unlawfully is a crime and detained perpetrators in the United States are always segregated from their children and families.

But until May this year, the United States did not prosecute everyone who crossed the border unlawfully, not least because many of them are asking for refuge, and are escaping persecution or threats of brutality from illegal gangs in Mexico.

Normally, people arrested at the border were kept in immigration detention centres, before being brought before an immigration court to decide whether they should be deported but that all changed with a statement from Attorney General Jeff Sessions, made on May 7th, 2018.

Now, if a child is being smuggled into the country, the United States will prosecute, and that child will be segregated from the family, apparently, as dictated by legislation. So, if you don’t want your child separated, then don’t bring them across the border unlawfully and the United States is now saying that it’s not their problem if somebody does this.

Migrants are being sent to federal prison and brought before a federal judge to determine if they will face prison time but people kept in federal jail can’t be kept together with their children, instead, those children are being put in crates.

Donald Trump’s immigration system is repugnant, outrageous and crazy. In fact, there is really nothing American about Donald Trump and if you go back on his genealogy, his family were German through and through and his German lineage dates back to 1601 and perhaps before that, they all came from Germany. I bet they weren’t put into crates when they came over as immigrants.

Here’s what it says on the Statue of Liberty:
Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

lady_liberty_weeps_by_phyteclub-daxbjwv.jpg

It appears that the American’s have got A levels in bullshit and lies and America is supposed to be the land of the free when it satisfies them. Although the Statue of Liberty doesn’t say anything about hopping over the border unlawfully, it does give them the right to a just trial and to at least know that their children are safe and not caged up like nothing more than animals.

People should be against treating other human beings like excrement, it shouldn’t matter whether they’re in America unlawfully or not, they’re still human beings and should be treated as such. It’s not a Hitler administration (or is it), next he’ll be putting them into concentration type compounds.

They wouldn’t need to escape their own countries if the West hadn’t blasted the crap out of them, to begin with, and the precious orange hobgoblin Donald Trump should take responsibility for his own actions.

Of course, they didn’t blast the crap out of Mexico, but they presumably would have done if Mexico had anything of worth because America doesn’t like other countries to prosper, it only takes what it can get from them and if it’s not worth anything they throw it back.

This is about mankind, taking children from their families which is simply unnecessarily cruel. Prosecute illegal adults all you like, but at least keep their families intact and whilst these children may well have entered the country unlawfully they should not be segregated from their parents or custodians, how anyone can dispute this and put a positive spin on it is shameful.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Zombie Apocalypse

The General Election results were in and Theresa May who had gone to the polls lost her overall majority and was left begging a handful of Ulster reptiles to take a billion pound pay off to save her political career and the woman who had pledged a strong and stable leadership was now a babbling mess, who was being kept on as Tory leader only because the options to her were even more terrible.

George-Osborne-GETTY.jpg

George Osborne stated that she was a dead woman walking and the only question was how long she remained on death row.

1_C0-LwDXHkaqk_mBi-lwnUQ.jpg

It’s a zombie government and it’s dead from the neck down, taking a country paralysed by Brexit into a zombie apocalypse and I can’t remember this country ever being controlled by such clueless, backstabbing cowards and they give no ­leadership, plans, strategies, answers, reliability or belief other than surviving for survival’s sake.

All energy has been sucked out of the Government by the Brexit disaster and restored with fear as predators on the right of Theresa May’s party and in the media wait to picnic on her remains if she goes against their hardline wishes.

Externally, Donald Trump walks all over us, even refusing to give Theresa May a formal meeting at the G7 summit and Russia snubs us.

Europe is laughing at us and the rest of the world and was thought to be forming trade agreements and internally, as the nation becomes more ill-matched by the day, and we’re losing the will to tread water.

As those who govern us fail to understand the basics of governing, it seems like Britain is sailing towards intensive care with no guarantees we’ll stay alive due to eight years of austerity which has paralysed the NHS and even more disturbing than the hapless Theresa May is the calibre of chlorinated chickens who could succeed her.

Official_portrait_of_Mr_Philip_Hammond_crop_2.jpg

Chancellor Philip Hammond who looks like he steals bodies in the night represents her Cabinet’s ghastly pallor and Chris Grayling showed as he seeks to defend his ­shambolic handling of our failing railway system, that a toilet brush possesses more brains and charm.

768px-Official_portrait_of_Mr_Jeremy_Hunt_crop_2.jpg

Words that could be used to that equally blundering nobody Jeremy Hunt who, despite causing more grief on our hospitals than the Luftwaffe, has strangely become the longest ever serving health minister and there’s Boris Johnson, stabbing his leader in the face as he tells his Thatcherite fanbase the nation is heading for a meltdown and we’d be better off being led by Donald Trump and Jacob Rees-Mogg who thinks England’s prosperity declined when serfdom was eliminated.

1200px-Official_portrait_of_Michael_Gove_crop_2.jpgOr Michael Gove, when it was announced four million Brits had used food banks and accused the poor of eating badly not because they’re skint but because the greedy gits choose solace.

1200px-Official_portrait_of_Mr_David_Davis_crop_2-1

And then there’s David Davis, the weekend SAS man in charge of freeing us from Europe, who revealed he wasn’t elected to that job because of his intellect.

h_54196989-1160x773.jpg

A year on from all the excitement of seeing the Theresa May openly short-circuited there’s little to smile about and little to convince us that we’re not heading for a zombie apocalypse.

And don’t forget Tories are killing the disabled but that’s been going on for ages

 

 

Ditch Scheme

Tory ministers have abandoned a plan intended to prevent people unfairly losing their benefits, maintaining it’s not deserving of the extra time and cost.

The yellow card scheme gave people a warning before their Jobseekers’ Allowance was sanctioned after MPs warned the system caused severe financial hardship. But the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is abandoning the plan following a short trial involving just 6,500 claimants.

Ministers declared the trial appeared to make little difference to the outcomes of claimants and they’re now going back to the drawing board to design an alternative system almost two years after the project was trialled.

But they’re dragging their feet and the delay will just drive people to food banks and data implied the project was protecting hundreds of people from being unfairly sanctioned.

If it had been implemented in the country as a whole, that layer of stability could have covered countless thousands of very vulnerable people and ministers should come up with a new plan immediately to prevent people being left penniless and justice demands that actions like these are tested as quickly as possible.

The yellow card trial, mid-April and September 2016, meant claimants who faced a benefit sanction were instead given a sanction warning letter but the DWP stated that only 13 per cent of those who got a warning letter responded to it within the two week period.

Plus in half of those instances, the data did not include a good reason for the sanction to be removed, so it was used nevertheless and about 8,700 jobseekers’ allowance claimants are sanctioned per month for transgressions like reporting late to an appointment due to traffic.

Sanctions last an average of 28 days but 5 per cent last more than 14 weeks and Campaigners fear the sanctioned time will soar under Universal Credit, the all-in-one benefit which is replacing jobseekers’ allowance.

Image

Some 4.7 per cent of Universal Credit claimants were sanctioned in November 2017, compared to just 0.4 per cent of jobseekers’ allowance claimants and they’re also sanctioned for longer, with 15 per cent of universal credit claimants who are sanctioned losing their benefits for 14 weeks or longer.

It appears that given the added responsibility that had been put on Departmental resources and marginal gains obtained, the trial did not seem to be an effective use of the Department’s resource and the DWP doesn’t think that the advantages of the strategy are enough to warrant the additional time and cost it adds to the process.

They’re now examining the probability of an alternative method to give claimants written warnings, rather than a sanction, for a first sanctionable failure to attend a Work-Search Review and the plan will be to conduct a small-scale trial of concept to get qualitative feedback from workers on this new process, followed by any subsequent tests.

Sadly, the entire ethos of Toryism is to support cruelty at every opportunity. Fox hunting, benefit cuts, NHS cuts, taking away school meals for underprivileged kids, tax credit cuts and we really shouldn’t be shocked at this culture when we look a little deeper into the history of the principal offenders in Government.

At a really early age, most of them have nannies, as their own parents can’t be bothered with them and as quickly as they can, they send their children to boarding establishments and they’re barely allowed home. After that, they end up in university and all through there lives they are denied human kindness, respect and love.

So, is it any surprise that they turn into these cold heartless people who are simply are of no use to mankind at all.

The DWP have this two-pronged response and it’s quite sinister.

If worthy people are unsuccessful with their claims they give up persevering, end up much worse off and may be pushed into dead-end jobs they’re incapable of keeping but it gets them out of the unemployed category and then the DWP claim it as a success if they get them into work, irrespective of that person’s quality of life.

If the person gives up and kills themselves or dies from a worsening of the health condition they’re living with, the DWP state that it was the condition that killed them off, not the determination to deny them payment.

People who are blind are being given 0 points and they’re being told that they know they have a disability but that they’re not disabled enough. What does a disabled person have to do to get Personal Independence Payment (PIP), do they have to be dead?

If a person is blind, they can’t see, it’s as simple as that. If a person can’t speak, it means they can’t communicate, it’s as simple as that. If a person has had their leg or arm amputated, it means they can’t walk, it’s as simple as that.

A person who’s blind, their eyesight isn’t going to come back, if they can’t speak, they’re not suddenly going to wake up one day and be able to talk, if they’re arm or leg has been removed, it’s not going to grow back, we haven’t actually grasped the science of mutation yet.

There have been so many people who have committed suicide because they’ve been turned down for Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) or Personal Independence Payments (PIP) and those that were on Disability Living Allowance (DLA) and then assessed and put on PIP, some have lost money or had their money discontinued because they’re evaluated by fools.

Numerous people I have talked who went from DLA to PIP are being evaluated by people that have no idea about their health. Therefore, a person going to be evaluated who has a heart condition and is being evaluated by a physiotherapist, what does a physiotherapist know about heart disease? NOTHING!

There are many cases like this, where a person goes to see an assessor and that person asks the assessor what sort of skills they have and it has nothing to do with what the person has wrong with them.

We can understand the logic of being evaluated, but if the government want the scheme to work, they must get in qualified staff to do the job. If somebody goes to be evaluated and they have an arm or a leg missing, it’s not hard to understand why they’re there.

Although there is certainly no logic to this, if a person is an amputee, it’s rather self-explanatory, so why torture them into coming in to be assessed in the first place? If someone is being assessed and they have kidney disease, then the person assessing them needs to be qualified in kidney disease et cetera.

There’s no trust anymore, whatever benefit you might be on. There’s no trust in the system, and the establishment needs to find a more reliable way of doing things and it might seem routine to them, but it unquestionably isn’t routine to the person that has to put up with this total lack of empathy.

To do the job well, DWP workers must understand and identify and they must learn that people have emotions. They must be on the same wavelength and to be able to speak the same language, otherwise, how can they possibly relate to that person.

If they don’t have insight they can’t move forward in connecting with the people that they deal with every day.

I have been down to the Jobcentre a number of times and I have observed the workers there. Most of them don’t even seem like they want to be there, with their huffing and puffing attitudes, and with that said, sanctioning a person must be the highlight of their day.

Withholding benefits will not help vulnerable people to get work, particularly those that are too weak to work and there is no indication that sanctions work and numerous Jobcentre advisers are told to get a claimant in, to get them onto the Work Programme.

And even if that claimant is about to go into hospital for a major operation, he will still be summoned, otherwise, he will suffer a sanction that could end benefits for four weeks.

Advisers are encouraged to see each interview as an opportunity to start the process of sanctions that might delay or withdraw their claim, thereby diminishing the number of claimants.

We’re frequently told that such drastic steps were used as a benign incentive, to remind people of an alternative to a life dependent on benefits but there wasn’t any proof that they worked.

Department_for_Work_and_Pensions_logo.svg

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) never had any proof, so it’s been a lie all along about the motives for imposing sanctions and it’s failed to monitor the overwhelming impacts it’s had on thousands of people whose benefits have been denied.

The primary experience with people on health-related benefits where people who work for the DWP and are required to implement hostile targets to some of the most defenceless people in society if they’re five minutes late for an interview or fail to apply for enough jobs.

It’s called the Jobcentre for a reason so they can find YOU work, not the other way round.

Some of these people were actually without food and couldn’t afford to heat their homes.

People who work for the DWP should be doing something for their clients, but instead, they sit there dishing out these sanctions in an attempt to get brownie points for cruelty.

The bureaucracy itself seems to be intentionally planned to confuse the distressed claimants and this didn’t just affect those dealing with literacy or mental issues, numerous clients, who were usually high-achieving professionals, or people that had worked all their life, suddenly through redundancy or injury were for the first time in their lives, were forced to claim benefits and found the process daunting and embarrassing.

Some of these claimants might be in the older category and some don’t have any computer skills and find it quite hard to use a computer and there’s nobody to support them and there’s a lot of people out there that don’t own a computer, let’s face it, the DWP don’t pay enough for that kind of indulgence.

I recently was involved with a couple who had moved in together because she is pregnant and they were required to claim together. He’s disabled and although his partner isn’t, she has literacy problems and isn’t good on the telephone, so I spoke for her with her consent.

Following a lot of confusion they will get their money, which they’ve waited two months for but I was told that he needed identification when they went for their interview, so I asked what would he need and I was told a Passport or Drivers Licence, my response was they don’t have a passport or drivers licence because the DWP don’t pay them enough for that extravagance and if they require that sort of identification they should pay them more, after all, you can’t get blood out of a stone.

But the burden on workers to reach targets is intense and team meetings frequently leave colleagues in tears and if any staff go off sick this increases pressure on staff achievement.

Many of the workers at the DWP have caseloads of clients but rather than helping them back to work or training, the staff are required to focus on trying to find inventive ways of meeting targets and some workers get so distressed by the work that they become depressed.

We must show how society and the media defame and slander benefit claimants and that must be changed.

Society has too many people with too much time on their hands, with people peering out their windows, policing people who are genuinely on sickness benefit but society assumes they must be skiving.

We actually have turned into a mean-spirited society, spying on our next-door-neighbour.

There’s no doubt that the system of scoring brownie points towards targets still is and in fact, the sanctions are used as a one size fits all which is motivated by financial and political targets regardless of entitlement or eligibility.

People are being threatened with sanctions and have to apply for positions that they’re not even qualified for, but have to make useless applications for that said job that they would never really be considered for but the DWP staff are under the telescope as well because they’re compelled to do these things or else they will be sitting on the opposite side of the desk.

The DWP is led by men and women who don’t know a joiner from a wheeltapper and withholding food is an ultimate crime and any government doing that should be charged with crimes against humanity and it’s a burden of shame which should taint the character of every MP.

But it’s not patriotic to reprimand the establishment for its apparent cruelty to the people of Great Britain. Yet we have a parasitic government of the rich, for the rich, by the rich and such is our view of a benign government that the overall public seems compelled to impute the most vulnerable for all our problems and the United Kingdom has become a shameful, offensive little country.

If you starved your dog because it didn’t do want you wanted it to, you would be persecuted and that’s what it’s like all over the United Kingdom, it treats its dogs better than its people.

We have an extremely insulting government that has taken divide and rule to a new and terrifying level and with the aid of the media, they have succeeded in setting citizen against citizen. They have encouraged hate and prejudice amongst us all and have proceeded to use this for their own ends.

They’re cruel scoundrels, traitors who are slimy, smooth-tongued crooks. Starving people so they take, dead end, low paid jobs they wouldn’t do themselves and in the meantime, we’ve been paying for Ian Duncan Smith’s underpants.

There are those in the DWP who enjoy the persecution they employ, however, there are others in the DWP who are being bullied and made to do these things involuntarily. Many are getting ill or mentally sick over what they’re made to do and many have left their jobs and some have become whistleblowers.

There are some nice people who work in the DWP, but the DWP culture and environment has become so noxious and depressing they’re backed into a corner.

There should be laws that stop Ministers from creating these sort of situations, but why do they do it? It’s just sheer brutality and sheer bullying.

Bullying is disdainful and this government approve it and have done so for a long time, and like all tormentors, they pick on the most defenceless in our society and I would like to know why our government think that society should cast off these poor people.

dd7128f911cf487a034e017aa6d4b218

It’s been roughly 2 years since Theresa May became Prime Minister but she’s done nothing for the disenfranchised constituents of our society and the Tories seem to think that they’re above the law, and even if they’re taken to court, what do they do, they change the law and suddenly they’re not guilty anymore.

It’s a trick used by oppressors and tyrants, like Mugabe and the Tories are attempting to influence the ESA/PIP tribunals by stacking the system against the claimant and delegating more attack dogs to make the DWP view on the tribunals.

And then there was the UN inquiry that uncovered that Britain had violated the agreement on Disabled Rights which the Tories rejected. The UN report on housing and the Bedroom Tax, the Tories rejected that as well and don’t overlook the high dudgeon the Tories got into when the courts supported the sovereignty of Parliament and with the help of their Far Right press collaborators they branded the judges and the law as conspirators to the people.

The Tories don’t want the law to be obeyed, except when it satisfies them.

The problem is people are so easily deceived, show them opposition and they’re like putty and we don’t want to believe that there’s a certain network of media factions and the conservative government are in league with each other to basically give them the ability to do as they please and for us to praise them for it.

We want to believe that the government are our chosen delegates and do really do have our best interests at heart. I mean, how can this many people be this evil? But as each day is passing people are becoming more sceptical.

You have to be vaguely human to have a soul and like most people in government, they all appear to have a dark side but to have a soul you must possess the qualities of kindness, compassion and benevolence and the MP’s that supported this should be made to experience life on welfare for a few years under the regime they created.

 

 

 

Universal Credit Cut After Being Deemed American

A nan has had her benefits cut because she’s been considered American despite living in the United Kingdom since the age of five.

Untitled

Gwendolyn Banks, who also cares for her dead daughter’s four-year-old girl, travelled to England with her parents 57-years ago but now the 62-year-old has lost her Universal Credit despite living and working the majority of her life in the Midlands.

Gwendolyn Banks, from Aston, could lose her home, which she has lived in since the age of 21, and was told she is no longer classified as a UK citizen.

She couldn’t believe what they were saying to her and while she’s appealing the decision, she has insufficient money coming in and can’t support herself properly.

She was born in America but England is her home. She has no family she knows in America and she doesn’t even have an American accent.

Gwendolyn is a full-time carer for her ex-husband and can’t work because of ill-health. She is also the legal guardian to granddaughter Sienna, after her mum, Sinead died suddenly from cardiac arrest aged just 24.

Department_for_Work_and_Pensions_logo.svg.png

But the DWP stopped Mrs Banks’ benefits claim after informing her she had flunked the Habitual Residency Test.

Gwendolyn says she survives on only £80 per week and was previously on £200 per week and she’s still trying to come to terms with the unexpected death of her daughter who died this year and when she enquired for additional monetary aid to look after her granddaughter, they unloaded this bombshell on her.

She can’t even afford to feed her granddaughter and Gwendolyn has been ordered to court and could lose her home.

Ms Banks’ case is currently being examined by a specialist decision maker.

And now people who have moved to the United Kingdom may be asked to produce specific documents when they make a new claim to benefits and this has not changed under Universal Credit.

This is happening all over the United Kingdom, and many have been here most of their lives have been turned down for Universal Credit and PIP, this is the start of Brexit.

The DWP said that her case is currently being examined by a special decision maker and what is that? Is there even a qualification for that? Does one have to be MBA or PhD qualified before being elected to that position, is there no such thing as common sense these days?

 

 

 

Hundreds March In Leeds

tommy-robinson-arrest-facebook-live-court-jailed-13-months-leeds-crown-case-order-ban-EDL-706024

Hundreds of demonstrators gathered outside the site of Tommy Robinson’s arrest in an effort to ensure the former English Defence League (EDL) leader’s discharge from prison. About 500 demonstrators droned “let Tommy out” at police officers outside Leeds Crown Court and the procession saw followers of the 35-year-old brand police officers a “disgrace”, as mantras of “you ought to be ashamed of yourselves” broke out.

The event was coordinated by the organisation Proud British, which claims on Facebook that its mission is to “voice freedom of speech” and “stop the strain on the NHS, schools and our public services” and the demonstration came a week after the right-wing activist’s imprisonment for using social media to relay details of a trial which is subject to blanket broadcasting constraints.

Leeds Crown Court learned how Tommy Robinson had filmed himself and people involved in the case, in footage that was viewed about 250,000 times inside hours of being posted on Facebook. Robinson, who was listed by his real name Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon on court papers, was sentenced to 13 months in prison on the same day as his arrest.

He was given 10 months in prison for contempt of court, and an extra three months for breaching an earlier suspended sentence.

Judge Geoffrey Marson QC told Robinson at the time: “Everyone understands the right to freedom of speech but there are responsibilities and obligations.”

Freedom of Speech is pretty restricted these days except, of course, if you’re saying something nice about the Monarchy or the government, otherwise there’s a straitjacket on most people and we have to be extremely cautious on what we say or how we word it.

What we talk about in our homes is fine, or so we believe because the government have indicated it will use smart home gadgets for intrusion and numerous consumers are completely oblivious that the smart devices making their home more custom and responsive are making data that can be hacked or collected.

The internet of things and the various accessories like thermostats, cameras and other devices that are frequently connected to the internet are giving adequate opportunity for intelligence agencies to spy on victims, and maybe the masses and it’s a risk that many consumers who purchase these commodities may be totally blind to.

And there is already a gagging order to suppress information or a comment being made known or transferred to any unofficial third person.

Gag-Order

Gag orders may be applied, for instance, to keep certain trade secrets of a corporation, and to protect the integrity of ongoing police or military services, or to protect the privacy of victims or children but as a downside, they may be exploited as a valuable instrument for those of financial means to browbeat witnesses and stop freedom of information, using the legal system rather than other techniques of coercion.

Gag orders are sometimes applied in an effort to ensure a fair trial by restricting prejudicial pre-trial reporting, although their use for this idea is questionable because they are a possibly illegal preceding restraint that can lead to the press’s using less credible sources such as off-the-record statements and second-or third-hand accounts.

In a similar way, a gag law may restrict freedom of the press, by establishing censorship or limiting access to information.

A reporting restraint had originally barred the media from announcing Tommy Robinson’s punishment, but this was lifted at the same court and throughout the march, caches of people were seen flying banners displaying the St George’s Cross and handcrafted placards voicing support for Tommy Robinson.

One read “Stand with Tommy, free Tommy now,” whilst another branded the police, government and justice system as “corrupt” and demonstrators also invited members of the press to publish details of the case that Tommy Robinson, of Bedfordshire, had been filming, in line with “the principle of open justice”.

Freedom of paper no longer exists in Britain. The country that gave the world the Magna Carta, the Levellers, and John Stuart Mill, three of the fundamental foundation stones of the modern idea of freedom is now arresting and even imprisoning people simply for speaking their minds.

To see how corrupt things have got, analyse three incidents from the past week alone.

Twitter_logo_bird_transparent_png

A man has been examined by the police for a hashtag he used on Twitter. Seriously. Never mind speechcrime or even tweetcrime, now we have hashtagcrime and the man in question, Stephen Dodds, committed the transgression of taking a photo of two Muslims praying at Anfield, the home ground of Liverpool Football Club, and posting it on Twitter alongside the tweet: “Muslims praying at half-time at the match yesterday. #DISGRACE.”

Of course, Freedom of Speech has special duties and responsibilities because not everybody will agree with what one has to say, especially if it’s about somebody else, especially if they’re Muslim.

These days we’re a multi-national society and we have many ethnic minorities, whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing is in the opinion of the masses. Sadly, our government knows this and use it to their advantage and now they’ve made it into a place of opposition.

That hashtag on Twitter saw this guy Stephen Dodds the victim of a tumultuous Twitterstorm, the latest version of a tomato-wielding mob and he was ultimately reported to the police.

They investigated the matter for two weeks before eventually telling Liverpool FC to take suitable action against the wicked hashtagger and Liverpool announced it was deciding how to punish this man who dared to type the word “Disgrace” on the internet.

Journalist, Katie Hopkins, was reported to the police, and, strangely, to the International Criminal Court (ICC), for writing an article for the Sun in which she referred to the African migrants seeking to get into Europe as “cockroaches.”

Of course, Katie Hopkins is known for her weird opinions and she’s been reported to the police before, for hate crimes against fat people when she announced “fat people are just lazy,” which is supposedly a police matter now.

The police didn’t charge her over her fat-shaming, but they might well question her over her migrant-bashing and her cockroaches comment prompted the Twittersphere to go into meltdown and 285,000 people signed a petition asking the Sun to fire her.

What a heartfelt answer to Europe’s migrant crisis is to barter these 285,000 narrow-minded Brits who assume they have the freedom to shut down journalists they don’t like for 285,000 African who want to live in this country.

Do you see what the government are doing?

Our government are waging war on white English people and my friend England is in the midst of a deeply sinister social experiment and for the first time in a mature democracy, the government is waging a crusade of aggressive bias against its native people.

And now the Society of Black Lawyers have reported Katie Hopkins to the UK police and further to the ICC, asking it examine her remarks under the provisions of incitement to commit crimes against humanity, this is a scandal, although I didn’t hashtag that!

If people don’t want hashtag, twitter and facebook comments then close them all down, but isn’t this why we call it social networking? But what’s more is that people relish this sort of excitement and then they whine about it, yelling from the rooftops that it’s shameful or it’s not proper, well, if people don’t like what they read, don’t read it.

We might not have Freedom of Speech but we do have the freedom to click off the page, do something else or even devise their own drama.

But it’s the wow factor and the government know this and they take advantage of people and exploit them and in the name of social diversity, they attack anything that smacks Englishness and the mainstream public is treated with disdain, their rights disregarded, their history trashed. In their own country, the English are being transformed into second-class subjects.

And this bias was highlighted by the case of Abigail Howarth, a vivacious teenager who applied for a training post with the Environment Agency in East Anglia but was turned down because she was too white and English and the post, which carried a £13,000 grant, was open solely to ethnic minorities, including the Scots, Welsh and Irish.

Such social engineering was supported by the Agency on the grounds that minorities were under-represented in its workforce, the parrot cry used by functionaries throughout the public sector to support prejudice against the English.

Though Abigail’s case truly created affront, it was not uncommon. This sort of mirrored prejudice is now widespread across the state machine, supported by the very English tax­payers who are the victims of institutional discrimination.

Although it is technically unlawful to limit jobs to some ethnic groups, the racially fixated commissars have found a way around that problem by developing training projects open solely to minorities. Under the 1976 Race Relations Act, it is lawful to use racial factors in recruitment to trainee positions such as the one to which Abigail applied.

Such methods are dressed up as “positive action” to broaden diversity and, in the words of one Labour council, “to overcome past discrimination”. So HM Revenue and Customs offer work experience positions, worth up to £15,900 a year pro-rata, to ethnic minority graduates, while the Museums Association has a two-year ethnic minority apprenticeship.

Furthermore, Birmingham City Council gives £16,000 a year to “black and minority ethnic individuals” in its “Positive Action Traineeship Scheme”, and a £10,000 allowance to clerical trainees from “the Bangladeshi and Pakistani communities”.

Unfair training schemes can further be found in ITV, the civil service and the NHS, which boasts “a management development programme specifically designed and tail­ored to the needs of black and minority ethnic midwives”.

It was reported that Avon and Somerset Constabulary denied 186 applications from white men on the grounds that they were now “over-represented” in the force. In the same way, London Mayor Ken Livingstone refused to endorse a series of nominations for the London Fire Authority because they were dominated by whites.

Plus whole towns are starting to suffer state disapproval. Eighty administrative jobs in the Prison Service have lately been transferred from Corby in Northamptonshire to Leicester because, as the Home Office revealed, Corby’s population is predominantly “white British”, which is supposedly such a terrible crime in our multicultural society.

It is a painful contradiction that the Government, which works itself into such a false fury over racial discrimination, should exercise such obvious discrimination on such a grand scale and the unrelenting centre on helping minorities that have led to a distorted doctrine of anti-white prejudice.

Virtually every interaction with any public service now points to a comprehensive study of one’s ethnic standing and a huge race equality industry has been formed, loaded with overpaid paper shufflers, consultants and advisers with little to do besides create new grievances.

There is an air of the Maoist permanent revolution about their activities. Since immigration now operates at apparently one million people a year, and the make-up of society is shifting dramatically. So, in this climate of continuous demographic upheaval, the race relations army will always be able to create more work for itself.

Yet anti-English prejudice threatens the central platform of the propaganda for mass immigration and we’re continually told we require large penetrations of immigrants to support our economy and fill jobs but unem­ployment levels in immigrant populations are so huge and skills so lacking that we need to keep parts of our economy for them.

So if we have to spend a bundle on training schemes, why are we inviting hundreds of thousands of immigrants from the Third World and Eastern Europe here every year?

Economics has little to do with the problem and the Left in Britain have seized on mass immigration and multiculturalism as a battering ram to shatter the society they dislike.

They once tried to alter our country through economic revolution and that crashed with the Winter of Discontent and the destruction of communism. But demographic development through migration has proved far more damaging.

George Orwell once wrote: “England is perhaps the only great country whose intellec­tuals are ashamed of their own nationality. In Left-wing circles, it is always felt that there is something slightly disgraceful in being an Englishman and that it is a duty to snigger at every English institution.”

That is now exactly the mentality that predominates inside the machinery of the British state and our country is drowning as a result.

Other tweeters have been detained and questioned by police for making off-colour remarks. A 19-year-old man was arrested for making a quip about the truck disaster in Glasgow when an out-of-control truck crashed into Christmas shoppers and killed six people.

The tweeter said: “So a bin lorry has apparently driven into 100 people in Glasgow eh, probably the most trash it’s picked up in one day.”

For that, for doing what people have been doing for generations, making up puns in the wake of a tragedy. He was arrested and then let off, but the police sent a chilling warning, anyone who makes terrible banter on Twitter we will be visited and given strong words of advice.

Many laws allow this police aggression of the online world with the Public Order Act of 1986, which criminalises racially aggravated expression, the Malicious Communications Act of 2003, which criminalises offensive, indecent or menacing communication in electronic media, these are the laws the police have used to colonise the internet.

The war on Katie Hopkins isn’t a one-off, either. It follows hot on the heels of the Leveson Inquiry’s creation of a chilling, choking climate in connection to the British press and started by David Cameron in 2011 purportedly to investigate phone-hacking at the News of the World, but actually having the vastly extended remit of looking into the full culture, practice, and ethics of the press, the Leveson Inquiry has generated a situation where Britain might someday have a press regulator set up by the Royal Charter which would be the first system of state-backed regulation of the press in Britain since 1695.

Even before that Royal Charter has been endorsed, Leveson has already, predictably, encouraged the narrow-minded censors in our midst who have long sought to quell offensive journalists, particularly tabloid ones and as one agitator against Katie Hopkins revealed. “Leveson was a smack in the teeth” of newspapers like the Sun, he said, which should now feel less able to publish Hopkins’ and others’ “vicious… right-wing opinioneering.”

In brief, a state-decreed, a judge-led inquiry is leading to the emasculation of the press.

Advertisements have been outlawed for hair products that were deemed insulting to Christians, they highlighted nuns in suspenders and advertisements for an airline that had a woman dressed as a schoolgirl, on the grounds that they could create widespread offence, in fact, only 13 people complained about them and then there was even an advertisement for a supermarket that showed a girl taking the salad out of her hamburger on the grounds that it condoned poor nutritional habits.

Censorship in the United Kingdom has become so insane that even the presentation of hamburgers is now rigorously policed.

Tommy Robinson has been sentenced to 13 months for breaching contempt of court laws with a Facebook Live video. He acknowledged committing contempt of court by distributing information that could prejudice an ongoing trial by a live stream on his Facebook page.

At one point the video was being viewed by more than 10,000 people, as Tommy Robinson tried to film defendants entering the court and discussed the case, which is subject to a separate reporting restraint.

A judge originally banned media reports of contempt proceedings upon Tommy Robinson over fears it could affect the ongoing trial but lifted the order after hearing submissions that members of the public and foreign media outlets were publishing incorrect information.

However, followers of the far-right figurehead have opposed his incarceration and the reporting constraints, using them to claim the establishment was trying to quell his views.

Donald Trump Jr, the US President’s son, shared a tweet from a Robinson fan with the comment “don’t let America follow in those footsteps”, while foreign diplomats including Dutch opposition leader Geert Wilders have asked for his release.

A “free Tommy” demonstration is being organised for London’s Whitehall on 9 June, while an appeal to free him has reached nearly half a million names and supporters have given money for legal expenses online.

Tommy Robinson made it clear that he was aware of the restrictions during the Facebook Live video, as well as the risk of being imprisoned.

 

Human Guinea Pigs

unnamedFor decades the MoD has dismissed using unwitting servicemen as guinea pigs in radiation experiments during the race to develop a nuclear bomb. But the widow of one Cold War pilot has blown that claim apart following obtaining secret documents that reveal he was used in a deadly experiment as he was ordered to fly through the cloud of a thermonuclear explosion.

Shirley Denson’s husband Eric had such a huge dose of radiation to his head in the 1958 flight that it caused ­crippling headaches so bad that he later killed himself saying he couldn’t bear the torture and two of their four daughters were born with abnormalities as were some of the grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

The documents reveal Eric, 24 at the time, had his head alone exposed to 65 years’ worth of normal ­background ­radiation, the same as 17,500 dental X-rays during six minutes spent flying through the cloud at Christmas Island in the South Pacific.

The ­documents which reveal that the Tory government of the day knew there was a danger to the men’s children and it’s ­utterly criminal to see it in black and white after all these years and it shows that the government used and exploited its own men and it should make people angry that it was done on purpose and that their men meant so little to them.

And this is the first time in all these years that evidence has been this strong and even though those soldiers always thought they were guinea pigs, it shows some of them were, at best, collateral damage in these horrifying experiments.

This is a shocking document the MoD cannot wiggle out of and we want answers about what experiments were carried out, and how many of the 22,000 nuke vets were involved in them.

The Defence Secretary should come to the Commons and announce an unqualified apology to Mrs Denson because these are genuinely disturbing discoveries which must be examined by the MoD.

This is a ­outright embarrassment.

Eric flew his converted Canberra B6 bomber into the mushroom cloud of a 2.8 megaton nuclear explosion on April 28, with X-ray badges on his seat to measure radiation. They were located behind the head, on both armrests, and in the seat pan for each member of the aircrew.

The bomb, codenamed Operation Grapple Y, was the most lethal weaponry Britain has ever discharged and care was taken to ensure as little shielding effect as possible was given to the badges and thus the crew.

Immediately after the experiments, Eric experienced vomiting and a rash, common manifestations of radiation poisoning but inside 48 hours he was ordered to pilot the aircraft again.

Veteran Joe Pasquini, who was a navigator in the same squadron, has a copy of Eric’s pilot logbook which reveals he returned to the air in the same aircraft on May 30 for a 75-minute radar calibration and formation flight.

The document recorded by scientists operating the experiments says those who received a dose of radiation between 10 Roentgen and 25 must not be exposed again for three years but Eric’s dose of 18.8R meant he should have been protected.

This was the worst of the three-man crew.

One of the badges was located near his groin. It registered a dose of 8.8R or around 30 years’ worth of normal background radiation. The ­document added that Testicular badges: The very significantly lower levels are of interest and cheer in relation to the likelihood of genetic damage.

Eric and Shirley had one healthy daughter before the nuclear experiments but birth defects or unexplained medal conditions in 37 per cent of their descendants, including skull deformities, missing and extra teeth, and spinal problems. Eric killed himself in 1976.

The document was an AWRE health physics paper looking at ways of testing the film badges to be sure they were accurate. But the MoD said: “It is not true to say these men were subject to an experiment to look at the effects of radiation.

And according to the MoD, the British nuclear testing programme contributed towards keeping the country safe throughout the Cold War and routine health checks were carried out and that the National Radiological Protection Board has carried out three studies of nuclear test veterans and found no credible proof to connect the programme to ill health.

The Mirror has fought for recognition for the vets since 2002, the 50th anniversary of the first British bomb test.

Every other nuclear power on Earth gives some acknowledgement or compensation to its nuke vets, including Russia, China and the USA and Britain is the only one refusing to accept harm was likely.

There were UK vets who got compensation from other countries, the families of scientists and servicemen who profess to have been harmed by radiation, and a string of court actions.

In 2007 DNA investigation revealed the New Zealand vets had the same degree of genetic damage as survivors of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, and a British investigation revealed the children had 10 times the usual rate of birth deformities.

A year later the Isle of Man Tynwald decided to give £6,000 to each of its veterans to help with their care needs and in 2009 France declared it was time to be true to its conscience and unveiled a £9 million compensation package for its nuke vets.

The same year, 10 British and Fijian vets and widows took the Ministry of Defence to the High Court and gained the right to take legal action for criminal neglect. The MoD appealed and in 2012 all but one case was thrown out. That one could not proceed for lack of funds.

In 2015 Fiji stated it would pay £3,000 to its survivors and asked Britain to do the same.

A group war pension appeal was started with assistance from the Royal British Legion but failed in the Appeal Court after judges ruled there was no evidence the men were irradiated.

In 2016, it was reported that the veterans intended to use a £1 million grant from the Aged Veterans’ Fund to pay for their own genetic research but it was we reported that researchers were struggling to obtain enough subjects to test.

Clearly, the MoD would dismiss this for its own protection against claims, so much is done under the National Security wording of tests, germ, gas and nuke experiments that have used UK service personnel as guinea pigs in every conceivable scenario of counterinsurgency.

Does one have to wonder as to what impact the chaotic above ground testing of over 500 nuclear devices by all nuclear nations have had upon the well-being of the global population?

But we’re all guinea pigs, some more than others.
