How Thatcher’s Government Covered Up a VIP Pedophile Ring

A newspaper editor was handed startling evidence that Britain’s top law enforcement official knew there was a VIP pedophile network in Westminster, at the heart of the British government. What happened next in the summer of 1984 helps to explain how shocking allegations of rape and murder against some of the country’s most powerful men went unchecked for decades.

Less than 24 hours after starting to inquire about the dossier presented to him by a senior Labour Party politician, the editor was confronted in his office by a furious member of parliament who threatened him and demanded the documents. “He was frothing at the mouth and really shouting and spitting in my face,” Don Hale told The Daily Beast. “He was straight at me like a raging lion; he was ready to knock me through the wall.”

The Battle Of Britain

In the last two months, UK Jewish leaders have repeatedly complained about an alarming rise of anti-Semitism in Britain. I’d like to use this opportunity to advise them that intimidating Britain’s arts schools and constantly bullying one of Britain’s prominent jazz artists doesn’t reflect well on British Jews or Israel’s supporters. Paradoxically, it confirms that Zionists, like their opponents, support and believe in cultural and academic suppression, they just don’t like to be boycotted themselves.

BBC News: Gilad Atzmon gig cancellation criticised

A venue that cancelled a gig by controversial jazz saxophonist Gilad Atzmon has been criticised for giving in to bullying.

Manchester's Royal Northern College of Music denied scrapping the concert by the Israeli-born star was "political", and said it was for safety reasons.

A petition by the North West Friends of Israel called for the gig to be pulled, claiming Atzmon is anti-Semitic.

'Expect many more politicians to be investigated': MP says veteran Tory Harvey Proctor will be first of many Westminster figures probed over historic abuse

A veteran Tory whose home was searched by police investigating historic allegations of child sex abuse will be the first of many Westminster figures quizzed by detectives, a campaigning Labour MP said tonight.

John Mann, who handed the police a dossier naming 22 politicians suspected of involvement in a Westminster paedophile ring, said he would be 'shocked' if detectives did not widen their probe after raiding former MP Harvey Proctor's home.

SIGN THIS PETITION - Reverse the concert cancellation of the Gilad Atzmon & The Orient House Ensemble

Jazz was born as an art form for social commitment through improvisation as a way to express freedom.

If a jazz artist is not able to be free in their expression, then the freedom for everyone is at risk. Silencing an artist is complicit in censorship.

We, the undersigned, strongly protest the recent cancellation of the Royal Northern College of Music's concert featuring Gilad Atzmon & The Orient House Ensemble; one of the most successful and critically acclaimed jazz groups in Europe.

It is our understanding that due to pressure from the Zionist Lobby group, the North West Friends of Israel, the concert was cancelled due to a "safety" issue.

HSBC tax dodge: George Osborne squirms as he refuses to answer questions on scandal SIX times

Father Tony McSweeney chalked up a number of notable additions to his CV during a lifetime supposedly devoted to the service of children and God.

He said Mass at Norwich City Football Club at the request of its celebrity cook owner Delia Smith, and conducted the marriage of world heavyweight boxing champion Frank Bruno.

He also received the prestigious Silver Acorn for decades of ‘dedication’ to the global Scout movement and his co-authorship of its official songbook.

Last week, he even boasted of being the ‘world expert’ on organising campfire get-togethers.

But now he must add a chilling new entry to his list of achievements: he has become the first paedophile to be tried and convicted after being linked to allegations of a VIP ring based at an infamous South London guesthouse who preyed on boys from a nearby care home.

School apology over 'Palestinian terrorism' homework

A North Lanarkshire school has apologised following complaints about a homework worksheet which labelled Palestinians as "terrorists".

The handout, given to P7 pupils at New Stevenson Primary School, states "Palestinians feel they have the RIGHT to use terrorism against the Israelis."

North Lanarkshire Council, which produced the worksheet, said it would ensure that it would no longer be used.

But a Palestinian group said the council had sought to "demonise" them.

IPCC to investigate police 'cover up' of eight year old boy's murder

The official police watchdog is to investigate claims that Scotland Yard covered up the murder of a young boy at the hands of a Westminster paedophile ring.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) will examine whether corrupt Met Police officers ignored clues to the death of eight-year-old Vishal Mehrotra in 1981.

Last November Vishal’s father, retired magistrate Vishambar Mehrotra, told the Telegraph that police had deliberately covered up his son’s killing to protect a network of high-profile child abusers.

Washington Yanks British Bulldog into Line

In a brazen show of bringing-to-heel in their «special relationship», American political and Pentagon chiefs are openly rebuking the British government to maintain its huge military spend on the NATO alliance – to the possible detriment of already withering public services in austerity-clobbered Britain. The imposition by Washington raises serious questions about the nature of democracy in Britain – the self-proclaimed «Mother of all Parliaments».

Netanyahu’s Big Gamble

In pursuing the strategy of preserving the perception of the Iranian threat in order to maintain the special relationship with the United States, Netanyahu is pursuing strategies that sabotage America’s own foreign policy interests...

By going over President Obama’s head to Congress, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is taking a big gamble, apparently hoping that he can block any U.S. rapprochement with Iran and heighten tensions in the Middle East, a strategy that lacks both facts and logic, says Ted Snider.

Manchester Music School Surrenders to Zionist Lobby Pressure

Yesterday I learned that my concert at The Royal Northern College of Music this coming Thursday had been cancelled due to Zionist pressure. I spoke with the RNCM's Marketing Director who told me that the concert was cancelled due to 'safety reasons.' It seems that the venue felt 'unable to guarantee my safety.' Given that I’m now a pretty big boy, this would be somewhat amusing except that the terrible implication is that Zionist’s violence has now made it to Britain. It took a few hours before I found out that it was the ultra- Zionist 'North West Friend Of Israel' that had put pressure on the music school.

Labour's Lord Owen own goal over tax avoidance as he is ordered to repay £50,000 after investigation by HMRC

Former Labour Foreign Secretary and party donor David Owen has been exposed as having invested in a tax avoidance scheme – in a major embarrassment for Ed Miliband.

Lord Owen has been ordered to repay around £50,000 after an investigation by the tax authorities. He is a supporter of Mr Miliband and last year he gave £7,500 to the Labour party.

HMRC investigators will this month insist the 76-year-old settles within 90 days or face legal action.

Pegida UK falls flat: Newcastle counter-demo outnumbers anti-Islamists by 5-to-1

Fewer than 300 people turned up in Newcastle for the first-ever rally of anti-Islamist group Pegida in the UK, while at least 1,500 gathered to protest the demo, just hundreds of yards away.

“We are here because nobody else who should be talking about the problems in this country is talking about them,” said Pegida’s keynote speaker, Paul Weston, from the far-right Liberty GB party, to an audience that mostly comprised white middle-aged men holding Union Jacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This attempt to fan the flames of hate against Muslims is failing because we recognize it as the same tactic the Nazis used against the Jews, leading to WW2.

What the BRICS plus Germany are really up to?

Winston Churchill once said, “I feel lonely without a war.” He also badly missed the loss of empire. Churchill’s successor – the ‘Empire of Chaos’ – now faces the same quandary. Some wars – as in Ukraine, by proxy – are not going so well.

And the loss of empire increasingly manifests itself in myriad moves by selected players aiming towards a multipolar world.

So no wonder US ‘Think Tankland’ is going bonkers, releasing wacky CIA-tinted “forecasts” where Russia is bound to disintegrate, and China is turning into a communist dictatorship. So much (imperial) wishful thinking, so little time to prolong hegemony.

MI6 complicity? Lee Rigby killer’s torture claims investigated, says Cameron

A new inquiry will be conducted into claims that MI6 were complicit in the alleged torture of Michael Adebolajo, one of the two men later convicted of murdering British soldier Lee Rigby in Woolwich in May 2013.

The investigation will focus on how the British spy agency handled claims Adebolajo was beaten by Kenya’s security forces, who have close ties with the UK, while detained there in 2010.

Prime Minister David Cameron ordered the inquiry after a report by Parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC) criticized MI6, also known as the Secret Intelligence Service.

The committee’s report found MI6 never asked the Kenyan authorities about Adebolajo’s claims, dismissing them as fabricated.

Treasury admits 'fat finger' blunder costing Lloyds bond holders £2bn

The Treasury has admitted it made a blunder by telling Lloyds Banking Group that it had permission to buy back investor bonds that propped the bank up in the wake of the financial crash – depriving holders of the notes billions of pounds in interest payments.

The so-called "fat finger" error reported by Business Insider, saw the Treasury incorrectly state the Prudential Regulatory Authority had approved Lloyds' application to redeem a series of Enhanced Capital Notes (ECNs), disclosed by the bank on 16th December 2014.

A statement by Sir Nicholas Macpherson, Permanent Secretary, HM Treasury, said: "HM Treasury understands that the PRA has not yet made a decision regarding whether to approve Lloyds Banking Group's application. We apologise for this error, and sincerely regret any problems caused."

The real reason Diana tapes were shelved: Director claims BBC axed 'dynamite' footage amid fears of upsetting monarchy - despite spending £500,000 on programme

The BBC allegedly wasted £500,000 on a documentary featuring 'dynamite' interviews with Princess Diana - but later shelved it because it did not want to upset the monarchy, it has been claimed.

According to the director behind a controversial documentary about the Princess of Wales, the BBC went on to give a misleading account of why the programme was not broadcast.

The Corporation said at the time that Diana: Her Story, Her Words, due to be broadcast on the tenth anniversary of her death, did not sufficiently add to the story of Diana's life.

But, in another controversial documentary being aired tonight, it is claimed the BBC stopped its broadcast amid fears it would upset the Royal Family close to Prince's Charles 60th birthday.

The Guardian Surrenders To Zionist Pressure

The following post is taken from the Ultra Zionist CIF Watch. The hawkish Israeli outlet is bragging today about its success in persuading The Guardian to remove The Wandering Who from its online book shop. Needless to say that The Wandering Who was published three years ago, it has been a best seller since then. It was translated into 12 languages and not a single claim referring to any form of hatred has been issued in the UK or anywhere else. The Wandering Who has been endorsed by the most impressive list of scholars and humanists. Seemingly, it doesn't take much for The Guardian to shamelessly surrender to pressure made by supporters of ethnic cleansing Israel.

David Tredinnick, Tory MP, Says NHS Doctors Could Use Astrology To Treat Patients

A Tory MP has said the NHS could use astrology to treat its patients, while branding anyone that doesn’t believe in it "racist" (that’s astrology – as in the belief that there is a relationship between astronomical phenomena and events in the human world).

David Tredinnick (who sits on both the Health Select Committee and the Science and Technology Select Committee) said on Tuesday that divination could have a "role to play in healthcare" and that employing prophecy in 21st century medicine could relieve "pressure" on doctors". In an interview with the Astrological Journal, the MP for Bosworth in Leicestershire said: "I do believe that astrology and complementary medicine would help take the huge pressure off doctors."

Iraqi Army Downs Two British Planes Carrying Weapons for ISIL Terrorists

Iraq’s army has shot down two British planes as they were carrying weapons for the ISIL terrorists in Al-Anbar province, a senior lawmaker disclosed on Monday.

“The Iraqi Parliament’s National Security and Defense Committee has access to the photos of both planes that are British and have crashed while they were carrying weapons for the ISIL,” Head of the committee Hakem al-Zameli said, according to a Monday report of the Arabic-language information center of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq.

He said the Iraqi parliament has asked London for explanations in this regard.

The senior Iraqi legislator further unveiled that the government in Baghdad is receiving daily reports from people and security forces in al-Anbar province on numerous flights by the US-led coalition planes that airdrop weapons and supplies for ISIL in terrorist-held areas.

If You Can't Make It Fake It: UK Claims Russian Missiles in Ukraine

British diplomats released photographs on Wednesday of what they described as Russia's advanced anti-aircraft artillery system allegedly being used in eastern Ukraine, saying it was further proof of Russia's military involvement in the conflict.

The snapshots of the truck-mounted SA-22 Pantsir surface-to-air missile system appeared on the web and on social networks, but for some strange reason the time and date they were taken differed from what appears on these very same photos published earlier.

...

Further linked was the webpage of the Billingcat investigative journalism group and showed a KAMAZ truck with a Pantsir-like unit sitting on top. The photo, made on a misty day against the backdrop of a concrete wall and some trees, only says, without elaborating, that it was taken in Shakhtarsk.

Which is surprising, because the very same photograph, which appeared on other websites, indicates it was taken on January 23 in Russia’s very own Rostov region.

Fiji slams UK for refusal to compensate victims of nuclear tests

“We are bringing justice to a brave and proud group of Fijians to whom a great injustice was done,” Fijian Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama said at a Friday ceremony held for the recognition of the suffering of the veterans.

“We are righting a wrong. We are closing an unfortunate chapter in our history,” Bainimarama added in an apparent reference to the UK’s refusal over the compensation.

The prime minister also stated, “Fiji is not prepared to wait for Britain to do the right thing. We owe it to these men to help them now, not wait for the British politicians and bureaucrats.”

Fiji was a British colony at the time of the nuclear tests.

We should all rage at how the HMRC Gestapo pick on the little people while doing cosy deals with the super rich

As someone who was subjected last year to an HMRC inspection of my tax affairs, I could not be more outraged at the revelations that some of the wealthiest people in Britain have been engaging in tax avoidance on a vast scale by exploiting the secrecy offered by HSBC’s Swiss private bank.

Labour, on whose watch most of this scandal occurred, have demanded to know whether David Cameron interrogated Stephen Green — the former HSBC chairman, who was in charge of the Swiss operation — when he granted him a peerage and a job as Trade Minister.

Meanwhile, Ed Miliband — who as the Mail reports today has, with his brother, pursued lucrative tax avoidance strategies — is trying to start a new class war by throwing rocks at rich Tory donors such as philanthropist Lord Fink, whose name appears on the list of clients in Switzerland.

David Cameron's IN-LAWS have links with a string of tax havens

David Cameron has come under more pressure over his wife Samantha’s family affairs after it emerged they have links to tax havens across the globe.

The PM’s mother-in-law Lady Astor’s luxury furniture store Oka Direct is more than 50% owned by anonymous ­shareholders through accounts held in Guernsey, we can reveal.

She has a 22% stake in the firm she founded in 1999 and which has ­benefited from the offshore investment.

And Samantha’s step-dad Viscount Astor is linked to a firm in a Caribbean tax haven which owned his family’s 19,000 acre Talbert Estate in Scotland.

The revelations come amid the furore sparked by further criticism of Mr Cameron’s wife’s job with plush stationery firm Smythson, whose owners are based in Luxembourg.

And the PM was branded a ­“hypocrite” after boasting about clamping down on tax dodgers, insisting he wants all British firms to be ­“headquartered” in the UK.

Cameron 'up to his neck' in HSBC tax row after revelations a string of Tory donors held Swiss bank accounts

David Cameron was accused of being 'up to his neck' in the Swiss bank account row today, after revelations that a string of Tory donors hoarded money in the country.

Former Conservative Party Treasurer Stanley Fink and German-born car manufacturing heir Georg von Opel, who has donated six-figure sums to the Tories, are among a host of individuals who legally held accounts in Switzerland with HSBC's private bank, according to a leaked tax disc.

In a fiery Commons debate, the Prime Minister insisted 'no-one had done more' than the current government to crack down on tax avoidance.

Social workers allowed convicted paedophile unrestricted access to five-year-old girl and failed to tell her mother about his past

A social services department allowed a convicted paedophile unrestricted access to a five-year-old girl and failed to tell her mother about his past.

The troubled social services department at Norfolk County Council has been accused of placing the child at risk as they allegedly knew the man was allowed to care for the girl alone but did not warn her mother about his history.

The case came to light after MPs and foster carers called for an investigation into claims the department has wrongly removed dozens of children from their carers.

Crime and punishment: Confiscate rogue bankers’ salaries & bonuses, says UK regulator

Britain’s financial regulator may force reckless and corrupt financiers to pay back their salaries and bonuses to state authorities in an effort to clamp down on rampant financial crime. Experts doubt the policy will prove effective, however.

The Financial Conduct Authority’s (FCA) suggested policy shift follows a soon-to-be implemented EU bonus cap, fiercely opposed by City bankers and the British government.

UK Government in Court of Appeal over rendition and torture case

Lawyers for the British Government will today argue in the Court of Appeal that a case concerning the 2004 kidnap, torture and ‘rendition’ of a man by UK and US forces should not be heard.

The case is being brought by legal charity Reprieve and solicitors Leigh Day on behalf of Yunus Rahmatullah (32), who was captured in Iraq by the UK, tortured and held in the notorious Abu Ghraib prison, before being ‘rendered’ to Afghanistan by the US. He then faced a decade of detention without charge or trial in Bagram prison, before being released in 2014.

‘Politicians can't be trusted to clean up HSBC’: Govt revenue chiefs grilled over tax evasion scandal

Top UK tax officials were probed by MPs on Wednesday over the recent tax evasion scandal that has engulfed British banking giant HSBC. Labour MP Austin Mitchel said Britain’s tax avoidance industry has eclipsed its tax collection industry.

Amid global controversy over HSBC's alleged involvement in industrial scale tax evasion, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) was questioned by Britain’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC).

On Sunday, it emerged HSBC's Swiss private banking arm had aided royalty, criminals, terrorists, and drug dealers in dodging taxes.

A colossal cache of files leaked to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) shed light on the banking giant's clandestine practices between 2005 and 2007. During this period, HSBC's Swiss private banking arm controlled roughly $100 billion in assets.

Files disclosing the bank’s suspect actions were leaked to HMRC in 2010.

‘Climate of fear’: NHS staff scared of exposing danger to patients, whistleblowers tell RT

An inquiry that found many NHS staff do not raise concerns about patient safety because they fear being ignored or bullied did not go far enough, whistle-blowing health professionals told RT.

The Freedom to Speak Up Review found a “climate of fear” permeates the NHS in England, with whistleblowers subject to “shocking” treatment when they attempt to speak out.

RANT: ‘Benefit Cheats’ RAIDED While HSBC Assists Terrorists?!

Yesterday, I covered a story that exposed HSBC as working with terrorists, royals, drug barons and celebrities to help them avoid paying taxes. Today, I was trying to enjoy lunch when I came across a news story so outrageous that I was almost forced to seek medical assistance for shock. British Police launched a dawn raid, not on HSBC, but families accused of benefit fraud. Benefit fraud isn’t a great thing obviously, but let’s put it into perspective.

Don’t forget this is the same country that is currently hunting people down for attempting to buy copies of Charlie Hebdo and letting people die by cutting spending on healthcare to balance a budget.

227 boxes of missing Lynette White documents found in police warehouse

A fresh scandal has erupted over the murder of Cardiff prostitute Lynette White 26 years ago with our revelation today that 227 boxes of missing legal documents relating to a police corruption case which sensationally collapsed have been discovered in a warehouse.

Documents seen by WalesOnline indicate that a retired police officer tipped off the chief inspector of Her Majesty’s Crown Prosecution Inspectorate that the boxes were being stored in a police warehouse at RAF St Athan in the Vale of Glamorgan – and that two of the documents should have been disclosed during the trial of eight former detectives and two civilians accused of conspiring to get innocent men convicted of Ms White’s murder.

Britain 'reserves right' to arm Ukraine: minister

Britain reserves the right to arm Ukraine and will not allow the Ukrainian army to collapse, Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond told parliament on Tuesday.

"It's a national decision for each country in the NATO alliance to decide whether to supply lethal aid to Ukraine," he said in a statement to MPs.

"The UK is not planning to do so but we reserve the right to keep this position under review," he said.

2,000 UK troops, RAF spy plane bound for Jordan to combat ISIS

The UK will send 2,000 specialist troops and a spy plane to Jordan to aid its efforts to defeat the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL), a government source has revealed.

The decision follows criticism from the Commons Defence Select Committee that the UK was not committing sufficient troops or resources to the area.

An initial group of 60 military planners will join a coalition HQ in Jordan, which will be used to co-ordinate support of Kurdish and Iraqi troops, followed by a further 2,000 who will mainly act in a training capacity, the source told the Express.

The UK’s increased involvement follows Jordan’s decision to extend airstrikes from Syria to Iraq.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This situation is escalating exponentially, and I have to wonder: will the RAF be bombing ISIS infrastructure, or that of the Syrian government, in order to "soften Syria up" for a UK/US/Jordanian ground strike in order to achieve regime change here?!?

Only time will tell, but I am seeing a massive increase in military activity in Iraq and beyond.

Chilcot report will be 'devastating' says No 10 as it emerges THIRTY are in the firing line of heavily critical Iraq Inquiry... and Blair's secret letters to Bush to be revealed in full

Thirty people, including Tony Blair, are set to be heavily criticised by the Chilcot Inquiry in its ‘devastating’ attack on the Iraq War.

Well-placed sources say that ‘approximately 30’ people have been sent letters by chairman Sir John Chilcot warning them that they will be criticised in his report into the 2003 invasion.

They include the former Prime Minister and ex-Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, as well as a host of other Labour politicians, Whitehall mandarins, diplomats and intelligence officials.

The Mail on Sunday understands that Chilcot’s million-word report on the conflict is ‘largely finished’.

Parents branded child abusers by NHS 'bullies'... simply for refusing a heel prick test on their newborn baby

It should have been the most joyous moment of their lives, one they would look back on fondly for years to come.

But for Tony Shepherd and his Polish fiancee Viola, the weeks after the birth of their baby were filled with disbelief, followed by desperation and finally outright terror – when a small act of perfectly legal defiance led the NHS to brand them child abusers.

The couple could never have imagined that their refusal to have a simple heel prick test for their son would escalate into a full-blown investigation by midwives, social workers and even the police; or that before their son Charlie was even three weeks old, he would have to endure two intimate internal examinations.

THE PAEDOFILE: TRIBUNE UNEARTHS MILITARY INTELLIGENCE SPOOK WHO SUPPLIED NAMES FOR DICKENS DOSSIER.

In a sensational piece for the latest edition of Tribune, a major blow is dealt to those who dismiss perversion whistle-blower Geoff Dickens as a fantasist. The post, by left-wing journalist Andrew Rosthorn, adds compelling evidence to support the Havers cover-up, while partially agreeing that – as so often happens in this field – Dickens made little distinction between under-age sex and paedophilia. But in getting MI5/MI6 operative Tony Holland (left above, now a wealthy Australian stock market investor) to go on the record as the man who furnished names for the maverick Tory MP’s dossier, Rosthorn has scored something of a coup in the serious investigation of Westminster deviants.

Gilad Express - A Brief Presentation At The Free Speech Forum Nottingham (video)

On Monday February 2nd, I returned to Nottingham to answer critics who accused me of all sort of things…

First, I went to Five Leaves Bookshop to confront my defamer Ross Bradshaw who led the campaign against me in Gedling ten days ago. Bradshaw gave rather feeble and defensive responses. I’ll soon publish a video of this discussion.

That night I presented my thoughts and addressed the accusations made against me. The event was filmed and the video is posted below. My opponents had been invited to join the event and debate me but they failed to show up.

Lowell Goddard: historic sex abuse inquiry will take at least three years

Justice Lowell Goddard, the newly appointed chairman of the inquiry into historic sexual abuse, has said her panel will not report back until 2018 but promised it would remain under control by setting ‘achievable goals’.

Following the chaos which surrounded the first attempts to set up the inquiry, with the departures of two chairmen over claims they were too close to the “Establishment,” Justice Goddard promised that victims would play a key role in selecting the new panel and setting its parameters.

Asked if she herself felt equipped to take on “the Establishment,” she said: “Well, I’m a judge so that’s not a new thing for me.

Plans for decommissioning giant North Sea field advance

ROYAL Dutch Shell has unveiled plans for decommissioning one of the biggest fields in the North Sea in a landmark move that should provide a major boost to the Scottish economy in coming years.

The oil and gas giant is launching a public consultation on removing one of the production platforms used on the massive Brent field north east of Shetland. This is a key step in the process for removing the production facilities for the field, which is expected to last more than 10 years and involve an outlay of billions of pounds.

Shell will have to remove four production platforms, 60 miles of pipelines and plug 140 wells on the field.

The size of the facilities means this will be the largest decommissioning project Shell has completed in the North Sea.
