Not so Cool Runnings: Four revellers who 'blacked up' to look like Jamaican bobsleigh team during Welsh carnival are investigated by police for racism

Four carnival revellers who 'blacked up' to look like a Jamaican bobsleigh team are being investigated by police for racism.

The four men covered themselves in black bodypaint and Lycra bodysuits to dress up as characters from the 1993 cult comedy film Cool Runnings.

But the men who used a wooden bobsleigh sparked a police probe after complaints that their outfits in the street parade in Aberaeron, West Wales, were racist.

Flashback - Princess Diana letter: 'Charles plans to kill me'

A handwritten letter in which Diana, Princess of Wales claimed that the Prince of Wales was plotting to kill her so he could marry Tiggy Legge-Bourke, the former nanny to Princes William and Harry, has been shown at the inquest into her death.

The note was sent to Paul Burrell, the princess's then butler, in October 1993, 10 months after her separation from Prince Charles was announced.

She wrote: "I am sitting here at my desk today in October, longing for someone to hug me and encourage me to keep strong and hold my head high.

"This particular phase in my life is the most dangerous - my husband is planning 'an accident' in my car, brake failure and serious head injury in order to make the path clear for him to marry Tiggy. Camilla is nothing but a decoy, so we are all being used by the man in every sense of the word."

Girls who have been sexually abused by Muslim rape gangs now told to “shut their mouths” for the “sake of diversity”

In the latest example of political correctness gone awry, a member of Britain’s Labor Party by the name of Naz Shah recently came out against girls who have been victims of Muslim rape gangs, even going so far as to say they need to “shut their mouths” in the spirit of diversity.

Shah retweeted a tweet originally posted by a spoof account pretending to be leftist Owen Jones, which read, “Exactly Areeq, those abused girls in Rotherham and elsewhere just need to shut their mouths. For the good of #diversity!” It’s hard to believe that anyone would be so ignorant and uncompassionate about such a serious issue, but apparently for some leftists, even sexual assault is to be ignored if it gets in the way of the advancement of their agenda.

Christian child 'begs' not to be sent back to Muslim foster family in UK

A five-year-old Christian girl in London has, reportedly, been put in the care of two different Muslim foster families in the last six months against the girl’s family’s wishes, The Times reported.

Citing a confidential local authority report, The Times claims that the child, who only speaks English, was encouraged to learn Arabic by one of the families she was under care of and begged social services to not send her back as they “do not speak English”.

The child, at times “very distressed”, claimed that one foster carer removed her necklace which had a Christian cross. She was also not allowed to eat the food given by her mother as it contained ‘haram’ ingredients.

Police press release error lands daily with paedophile rockstar scoop

A regional daily landed an exclusive about a paedophile rock star after one of its journalists was accidentally sent a draft press release by police chiefs.

Yorkshire Post features writer Chris Burn received the release in error after being copied into an email chain conversation involving South Yorkshire Police and the Independents Police Complaints Commission.

The draft showed findings by the IPCC that police officers in Doncaster had failed to take seriously a series of complaints made about former Lostprophets singer Ian Watkins, who is currently serving a 35-year prison sentence for sex offences including the attempted rape of a fan’s baby, by his ex-girlfriend Joanne Mjadzelics.

The email chain Chris read, which he received at around 10am on Friday, also showed the IPCC did not intend to publish the report in full.

He told HTFP: “After contacting both the police and the IPCC, both organisations made representations asking for the article not to run.

Lost Prophets singer Ian Watkins could have been stopped six months earlier if police hadn't mistaken a vile image of a girl aged FIVE for an adult woman

Police mistook an indecent image of a young girl for that of an adult woman when paedophile rock star Ian Watkins' ex-partner showed it to them as evidence of child sex abuse.

Watkins' former partner Joanne Mjadzelics contacted officers between March and May 2012 about the image that the Lostprophets singer had sent her.

But her evidence was ignored, an investigation by police watchdogs the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) later found.

Ms Mjadzelics, 42, claims she was later told by an IPCC investigator that a paediatrician estimated the female pictured to be approximately five years old.

Ms Mjadzelics, who was in an on-off relationship with Watkins for six years, said she was disappointed that more detail about the blunder was not included in the IPCC report published last week.

Neighbors recall being able to hear Jill Dando's voice as if she recognized someone, but were not able to hear a gunshot. Neighbors would then discover her body outside almost 14 minutes later after witnessing the male suspect leaving walking away.

Britain's budget in SURPLUS for the first time in 15 YEARS with £200m boost

BRITAIN received more money in taxes and other income than it spent in July, putting the national finances in surplus for the first time since 2002, in a huge economic boost ahead of Brexit.

Amid a surge in income from self-assessed tax payments, the state was up by £0.2billion last month, according to the Office for National Statistics.

Borrowing tends to be lower in July than other months, due to the timing of income tax payments.

But it has been 15 years since the Government received enough income to fund its spending commitments without having to borrow.

Liz MacKean, the former British investigative reporter who exposed Jimmy Savile and the culture of pedophile protection at the BBC, has been found dead. She was 52.

MacKean worked at the BBC until she quit in 2013 after executives decided to ban her groundbreaking and brave investigation into predatory pedophile Jimmy Savile in order to protect him and other pedophiles.

Dismissed by the establishment as mad and dangerous, MacKean was finally vindicated when the truth about Savile’s pedophilia eventually came out in 2012, a full year after MacKean first tried to bring his notorious crimes to light.

The BBC, who blocked her groundbreaking investigation from airing and spent the next few years attempting to destroy her reputation, are reporting that she died of “complications from a stroke.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Stroke", MY ASTROLABE; this was most probably an assassination made to look like a stroke, when the autopsy was done, because of the enormous, stealthy and dark powers of the elite in the UK, and how that power it is used (including assassinations) to protect its own.

R.I.P., Liz; your incredible courage should be an inspiration to others.

Vodafone has added a sneaky £1-a-month charge to more than one million customers' mobile phone contracts, we can reveal.

Former MI5 director becomes the latest ex-spy chief to back encrypted messaging

Jonathan Evans, a former head of MI5, has pledged his support for encrypted messaging in an interview with the BBC.

He told Radio 4’s Today Programme this morning that the technology is a critical tool in maintaining the country’s cyber security.

While acknowledging that encryption had made it difficult for spies to access messages between extremists, he added:

I’m not personally one of those who thinks we should weaken encryption because I think there is a parallel issue, which is cyber security more broadly.

While understandably there is a very acute concern about counter-terrorism, it is not the only threat that we face. The way in which cyberspace is being used by criminals and by governments is a potential threat to the UK’s interests more widely.

‘True’ £660m weekly cost of Britain’s EU membership

THE true cost to Britain of being in the EU has been £660million a week since 2010, a think tank says.

This includes more than £80billion lost to the Treasury after the European Court of Justice forced tax rebates to multinationals and £50billion in Eurozone bailout obligations.

In membership fees alone, after the rebate has been returned Britain has paid out £70.6billion in fees.

But the Bruges Groups says our real financial commitment is £275.08billion.

Over seven years that is £34.3billion a year, or £661,260,000 a week.

Lord Lawson was right to condemn Al Gore's film, says TIM NEWARK

Following Lord Lawson’s Radio 4 interview on the Today programme, the Green Party co-leader Jonathan Bartley condemned the BBC for giving any airtime to the former chancellor, who now heads the Global Warming Policy Foundation.

The Green Party claimed it was “false balance” even though Lawson was given half the time allowed to former US vice-president Al Gore to plug the sequel to his climate change propaganda movie An Inconvenient Truth.

Scientist and broadcaster Jim al-Khalili went further, saying: “There should be no debate any more about climate change.”

No debate at all? That sounds a very extreme response to Lawson’s reasonable comments. There should always be debate about policies that are costing every one of us hundreds of pounds every year in extra taxes on our fuel bills to subsidise a renewable energy industry that may well have no effect on climate change over the next century.

That is the real Inconvenient Truth.

UK Ships Arms Worth Millions to Venezuela, While Alleging Human Rights Abuses

It's been revealed the UK has sold military equipment worth millions to Venezuela since 2008, despite Foreign Office "concern" about human rights in the country. The exposure suggests the UK may be more than willing to sell weapons to any state willing to pay - and official concern for human rights in certain countries may not be entirely earnest.

While in some European countries eggs containing Fipronil residues have been sold as fresh eggs, in the UK this is not the case.

When one strips away the lies about central banks' "inflation and employment" mandates and focuses on what they really do - which is to keep asset prices artificially supported and volatility suppressed - the motive behind virtually every central bank act becomes readily apparent: preserve (and increase, if possible) confidence in the market and economy, while saying anything and everything that helps achieve this, or in other words, lie but don't get caught.
Today, thanks to the FT, we have proof of precisely this, in what may be the first recorded instance of a central bank openly lying in an attempt to preserve market stability... and getting caught.

On Tuesday, the Bank of England admitted that the UK government failed to find enough investors to fully cover its its 1914 War Loan, and was forced to turn to the central bank to help plug a deficit of more than £100m in the fundraising. However, it did so only after it lied to the public that the bond was oversubscribed:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Lies by the financial community never end, because they are engineered to "paper over" a system so delicate and fragile that complete economic collapse is only a minor hiccup away, most of the time.

US Sanctions — a Looney Tunes Bad Remake

By F. William Engdahl
5 Aug 2017

The ever-so-wise members of the Congress of the United States have just passed one of the most bizarre pieces of legislation in US history. Unilaterally, it makes illegal and severely punishable investments by European companies in international energy projects where Russia is involved. But it does far more. Unlike earlier US sanctions acts, the EU countries were not even consulted on the new act. It may well be that the bill, HR-3364: Countering Americas Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (sic) and its Senate counterpart will mark the irreversible decline of the United States as a global power and forge new ties between Russia, China, Iran and, yes, the major states of the EU including Germany .

What the Act says
That's All Folks!

British govt ‘squandering’ £1.6bn on ‘futile’ war on drugs

The audit, which has gone largely unnoticed, was published last month.

As the government released details of its new drug strategy, it also put out its evaluation of how the 2010-2016 plan went – hidden at the bottom of the page.

The report was not mentioned by any minister in a Home Office press release, or in the parliamentary debate the following week, or in any media coverage until the Times picked it up on Tuesday.

The report says the strategy to reduce illicit and harmful drug use, launched by Theresa May when she was home secretary, has largely failed.

Despite extensive resources being used to tackle drug use, consumption had remained stable since 2010, it said.

Britain needs a counter-radicalization program for its politicians, says terrorism expert

Charlie Bird, who spent time attached to the military in Iraq during the 2003 invasion, wrote on the Cable website that a counter-extremism program to monitor politicians might be worth considering.


The Prevent scheme is a government-led initiative to identify potential extremists in educational establishments and channel them into de-radicalization programs.

It is supported by McCarthy-style legislation which imposes a legal duty on educators to report their students.

“Should there be a similar statutory obligation on MPs, their spouses, partners, special advisers and friends?” asked Bird.

“Should they be obligated to report politicians who lean towards dangerous ideas, individuals and causes that could lead the country into wars that provoke even more terrorism and terrorist sympathizers?”

Aug 04 09:49


Britain’s largest defense firm has made $733 m in six months, and expects further growth, in results posted weeks after surviving a High Court challenge to its multi-billion-dollar arms deals with Saudi Arabia.

BAE Systems lauded the sale of Typhoon jets to Oman and noted its court victory over anti-arms trade campaigners in the results, saying net profits soared 36 percent to £555 m ($733 m) in the six months to the end of June, compared with £408 m a year earlier.

It said profits were boosted by UK government defense spending and a weak pound following Britain’s decision to leave the European Union. Sales forged almost 10 percent higher to stand at £9.565 bn.

Charles Woodburn, BAE’s chief executive, said: “BAE Systems’ performance in the first half was consistent with our expectations and guidance for the year.

“We have a sound platform for medium-term growth underpinned by a clear and consistent strategy.

Webmaster's Commentary:
