"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Sunday Round-up

Keep buggering on - Clegg is now the most popular party leader since Winston Churchill.  Pinch me.
Clegg courts youth vote
Cameron agrees Paxman interview
Hush money for former Prescott employee.  Prescott spokesman: "Our record on bullying is no worse than the rest of government."  Former press officer:  "He was a boastful, arrogant, nasty pig."
Prescott SpAd in £1m corruption allegations   No longer bribes, but 'bonuses'.
Charlie Whelan: in the thick of it, again
Enter Stage Left: The IMF & Greece
Private funding for the SAS   "On Friday afternoon the allegations were put to the Directorate of Special Forces (DSF), the headquarters of the Special Forces Group, and were accepted as accurate.

"But by 6pm the Ministry of Defence (MoD) said DSF had made a mistake and insisted that no private money was used to buy any equipment.

"An hour later, the MoD issued another statement admitting that the money had been used to purchase operational welfare equipment for members of the SAS who were deployed to Helmand."
Tiffin with the Taliban and in return they want "the return of sharia, the expulsion of foreigners and the restoration of security."
Don't mention the war  Politicians duck Afghanistan questions
Facebook campaign for sacked 'Wellington boot' commando
MI5 and the bugging of governments  Disclosures emerge "after behind-the-scenes row in which senior Whitehall civil servants – backed by Prime Minister Gordon Brown – attempted to suppress the revelation."
Frank Field calls Brown 'abnormal'  "Our country is in such a state.  We’ve printed money to buy our own debt.  It’s real Alice In Wonderland politics. We have to ask the world if they want to lend us money. If we can’t shift the debt we’re finished."
Another armed police/extradition cock-up  " What happened was beyond belief. I believed Britain was our refuge. All my family work. We don’t seek benefits we live quietly and peacefully.  Yet because of some unknown official in Croatia, I am dragged from my home, forced to watch my wife and children crying as I stand accused of dreadful crimes and then get locked in prison."

  1. So through private funding they've stolen the property and land banks deep within the railways, the hospitals, the schools, the Post Office, the...well anything we the taxpayer actually spent time and money on and now they want to steal the SAS. The Hereford Barracks must be parked on a secret gold mine or the Lads in Charge want an assassination squad to order.

    Murder for Hire is back. Kind of fits in with Barry Soetoro's new shoot to kill policy.

    21st Century politics is heading back to the 17th century or 19th century Russia.

  2. Sometimes I see it all slipping away, Incoming. I wonder who the private backers are? I see the football world cup is being hyped on the tv again with X-factor and the rest of the 'reality' shows. It's just not a reality I recognise.

  3. GV, check out Alan Watt, Zecharia Sitchins, Henry Deakin and Jordon Maxwell.

    Not to mention ICLEI - the home of the UN's "sustainable development" policy which is robbing people of their land and rights to to with it as they see fit, when they fail.

  4. Thanks Fausty, Watt's the only familiar name so I'll have a look at the others. I've posted lots on the UN, Soros, the Club of Rome etc before. Something's going on but there's that old saying "if ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise." I still haven't got back into the swing of posting yet - it's amazing how much can happen in a little over two weeks!
