Free cash machine threat: Banks accused of forcing 'cashless society' as MPs threaten investigation

Banks are attempting to push people into a cashless society, the ATM industry has claimed, as it warned that rural areas will be worst hit by an attack on free cash points.

Yesterday crisis talks between cash machine providers and banks, at least one of which wants to reduce the fees they pay for standalone cash points, failed to reach a resolution.

Unless an agreement is made around half of the free standalone cash points which make up LINK, the UK's network of ATMs, could disappear.

Millions of people living in rural areas could lose the ability to access bank notes and coins on a day-to-day basis, making them more reliant on "cashless" payments like bank cards, smartphones and online transactions.

Northumbria Uni fined £400K after boffin's bad math gives students a near-killer caffeine high

While administering the powdered caffeine for the study, a staff researcher had calculated the dosages on a mobile phone and missed a decimal point in the calculations. As a result, they both ended up getting 30g of the stimulant mixed into orange juice and water rather than the intended 0.3g. One cup of coffee typically has 0.1g of caffeine.

“They suffered violent side effects within minutes of drinking it," said Adam Farrer, prosecuting. “There was dizziness, blurred vision, vomiting, shaking and rapid heart beat. Both required hospital treatment. It was a life-threatening reaction.”

While both students lived through their ordeal, they were hospitalized in intensive care and had to undergo dialysis. They each lost about 10kg in weight and struggled with sporting activities.

Lords could 'delay start of Brexit UNTIL 2020' as fall out from Supreme Court continues

A spokesman for Clifford Chance said: “The Government may be able to secure the passage of its legislation through the House of Commons but not the House of Lords.

"Unlike defeat in the House of Commons, defeat for the Government in the House of Lords would not end Brexit, but it could delay Brexit for at least a year (amendments to the bill passed by the House of Lords but rejected by the Commons could have the same delaying effect)..

“The Parliament Acts 1911 and 1949 allow the House of Commons to override the House of Lords, but only after a gap of a year. That could potentially push Brexit back to mid-2020.”

Bad news Nicola! Sturgeon's EU dream in peril as MEPs brand Catalonia referendum 'ILLEGAL'

NICOLA Sturgeon's dream of keeping Scotland in the European Union were dealt a hammer blow today as Brussels politicians reacted with open fury to Catalonia's independence plans.

Fuming MEPs could not hide their contempt for efforts by the tiny Spanish region to split from the rest of the country and made it plain they would not welcome it into the bloc.

They fired volley after political volley at its plans for an independence referendum, which were touted by three Catalan MEPs at a highly controversial conference in Brussels this week.

The level of anger directed at secessionist politicians in Spain does not bode well for Ms Sturgeon, who wants to haul Scotland out of the UK in order to keep it in the single market.

‘How many referendums do you want?’ Piers Morgan OBLITERATES ‘sneaky’ Remainer Tom Brake

“You’ve taken the position that you want another referendum,” Piers Morgan, 51, probed. “Everyone knows why you’re doing this, you would like to see this overturned. You see this as a sneaky way of overturning it.”

“It’s not a sneaky way if it’s on the front of every newspaper,” the disgruntled politician hit back. “This is the single most disastrous fiasco that’s happened this century.”

Fuming by the guest’s reluctance to accept the 52 per cent majority that voted to leave the EU on June 23, Piers raged: “With the greatest respect, I voted remain but we lost and the majority of the country wanted to leave.

“You might think it’s a fiasco but it’s happened. You can’t have another vote.”

From Yin to Yang – Pussy Riot–3, in Washington

The ascent of Donald Trump is more than a change of tenant of the White House on 1600, Pennsylvania Ave. It is a momentous swing from Yin to Yang, from dark feminine to bright masculine paradigm, from Cybele to Christ. Tremendous resistance to the regime change proves its unique importance.

Pussy Riot–3, in Washington, another obscene attempt to use women and their bodies for political and religious anti-Christian purposes.

If you prefer a more up-to-date comparison, this is a new Pussy Riot. Perhaps you remember there was a Russian group of that name. They were anti-Putin like the American lot is anti-Trump; they blasphemed like their American counterparts; they were guided and supported by Louise “Madonna” Ciccone, who starred in Washington threatening to blow up the White House.

Mainstream British Press Propaganda Ramps Up Dangerous War Rhetoric against Russia

The British press are in full hysteria propaganda mode when it comes to demonising our new greatest threat on planet earth; not climate change, a global pandemic, international terrorism, or America’s new foe in the South China Sea – but Russia.

The Telegraph 31/12/16: “Systemic, relentless, predatory’ Russian cyber threat to US power grid exposed as malware found on major electricity company computer.”

The Independent 13/12/16: “Highly probable Russian interfered with Brexit referendum.”

Trump’s Inaugural Address Was Like No Other in History

He is rich enough, and independent enough, and cantankerous enough that he may not get stuck in the swamps of political compromise.

Donald Trump’s inaugural address is going to go down in history as one of the great ones.I say this as a man with 59 years of public speaking experience and a Ph.D. in American history.

Trump’s speech was different from any previous inaugural address. He spoke directly to his political base. He did not try to pull the country together in some kind of vague, pie-in-the-sky, common-ground political rhetoric. He threw down the gauntlet from the very beginning. Standing in front of the Capitol building, surrounded by former Presidents and politicians, he said that everything they had done in the past has been a way to extract power from the American people and to feather their own nests. This, of course, is exactly what they have done. Nobody had ever said this before in an inaugural address.

Trump’s Inaugural Speech – Promises, Hopes and Opportunities

Could 21st century capitalism dump imperialism? Maybe.
Just hours ago Donald Trump was finally sworn in as the President of the United States. Considering all the threats hanging over this event, this is good news because at least for the time being, the Neocons have lost their control over the Executive Branch and Trump is now finally in a position to take action.

The other good news is Trump’s inauguration speech which included this historical promise “We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example for everyone to follow”. Could that really mean that the USA has given up its role of World Hegemon? The mere fact of asking the question is already an immensely positive development as nobody would have asked it had Hillary Clinton been elected.

Trump’s Declaration of War – Paul Craig Roberts

If truth can be said, President Trump has declared a war far more dangerous to himself than if he had declared war against Russia or China.

Trump made it abundantly clear that Americans’ enemies are right here at home: globalists, neoliberal economists, neoconservatives and other unilateralists accustomed to imposing the US on the world and involving us in endless and expensive wars, politicians who serve the Ruling Establishment rather than the American people, indeed, the entire canopy of private interests that have run America into the ground while getting rich in the process.

Watch out for provocations against Russia

Recently, Britain became the voice for a potential war with Russia. First, former NATO commander General Sir Richard Shirreff's book, 2017 War with Russia, came out in May; after that, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson called on the British people to participate in street demonstrations against Russia. Last week, Defense Secretary Michael Fallon stated that war with Russia is not likely in 2017, but Britain would be ready for war against Russia in two years. There is a climbing tension between countries, nothing short of the one the world experienced when Cold War tensions occasionally peaked. British politicians are ignoring the fact that a war between Russia and the Western bloc would drag the whole world into it. Only 100 years ago the world was dragged into a serious war that went on for four years. The ambitions of European politicians thrust the world into an irreversible conflict in three weeks. This conflict was the First World War and led to deaths of 20 million people.

Britain’s ‘Failure To Tackle Tax Havens’ Draws Ire Of Anti-Corruption Campaigners

Anti-corruption campaigners have accused the British government of falling short on its longstanding commitment to fight corruption, voicing concerns over the government’s “rejection of the need to stop the UK tax havens selling secrecy.”

Responding to recommendations by the International Development Committee (IDC) in its October 2016 report ‘Tackling corruption overseas’, officials once again asserted on Monday the UK is a “leader in the fight against corruption and promoting transparency.”

Total Insanity: Brits Should Learn Polish, Punjabi, & Urdu To Make Immigrants Feel Welcome – Cambridge Prof

British people should learn immigrants’ languages to be more welcoming, according to a Cambridge professor, who says integration is a “two way street.”

University of Cambridge French philology and linguistics professor Wendy Ayres-Bennett says although people moving to Britain should learn English, Brits should also get over the idea that learning other languages is “something difficult and only for the intellectual elite.”

Mainstream British Press Propaganda Ramps Up Dangerous War Rhetoric against Russia

The British press are in full hysteria propaganda mode when it comes to demonising our new greatest threat on planet earth; not climate change, a global pandemic, international terrorism, or America’s new foe in the South China Sea – but Russia.

In all of these newspaper reports, and there are plenty more of them, not a single scrap of actual evidence other than hearsay is published. In the case of the Express story, it’s allegations are backed up with the statement “It is entirely feasible that Russia has targeted Tornadoes and Typhoons in this way,” said air defence expert Justin Bronk, of the Royal United Services Institute think-tank.” This is not evidence.

In the case of the Telegraph, this fairy-tail has been 100% debunked as pure propaganda and the original report from the Washington Post ended with a full-on apology by its editor. The Telegraph has printed no such amendment or apology for its totally fictitious article.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now that it is very clear that Hillary Clinton will not be the US's next President, but Trump will be,, it appears that the Deep State in both this Country and the UK are desperate to cook up some kind of war with Russia, if possible, even before Trump takes the Oath of Office tomorrow.

But the Deep State in both countries has been unsuccessful, because the massive, hysterical propaganda by their countries' respective presstitutes and whoreespondents have, to large part, fallen on deaf American and British ears.

In both countries and beyond, people are tuning into the independent media, like WRH, because they understand that the independent media, in large part, has no vested interests in the military/industrial complex, so war is not something they generally support.

BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg ‘Misreported’ Corbyn Story… But No Evidence Of Bias, Says Trust

Award winning BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg has been reprimanded by the BBC Trust for inaccurately reporting Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s views on shoot-to-kill policies in the aftermath of the Paris attacks.

Theresa May’s Brexit Plan 'Demeans' UK, Herself: Corbyn

Leader of the UK Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn has blasted Prime Minister Theresa May for offering a Brexit plan that “demeans herself and her office and our country’s standing.”

Boris Johnson Compares French President To Nazi Guard

UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has come under fire for comparing the French president to a Nazi prison guard giving ‘punishment beatings’ to Britain for trying to ‘escape’ the EU.

Speaking in India, Johnson appeared to liken Francois Hollande to a World War II German soldier, in a move which is likely to further alienate France ahead of Brexit negotiations.

“If Mr. Hollande wants to administer punishment beatings to anybody who seeks to escape [the EU], in the manner of some World War II movie, I don’t think that is the way forward, and it’s not in the interests of our friends and partners,” the foreign secretary said as quoted by the Independent.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May Pledges Hard Brexit, Threatens Trade War

In a speech at Lancaster House Tuesday, UK Prime Minister Theresa May all but threatened economic warfare against Europe if the UK is not granted unlimited access to European markets after it exits the European Union.

May’s aggressive posture is bound up with efforts to forge an economic and political alliance with the incoming administration of Donald Trump in the United States. Only May’s readiness to act as a bludgeon on behalf of Washington against the EU, and particularly against Germany, can account for the combative stand she took prior to triggering Brexit by invoking Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty.

Storm clouds gather as hurricane Trump prepares to hit White House

Donald Trump has delivered a huge boost to Britain by promising a trade deal within weeks of taking office to help make Brexit a ‘great thing’.

The President-elect spoke in glowing terms of his ‘love’ for the UK and revealed he was inviting Theresa May to visit him ‘right after’ he gets into the White House.

He said that he wants a trade agreement between the two countries secured ‘very quickly’ – making a mockery of President Obama’s threat that, if the country voted for Brexit, we would be at the ‘back of the queue’.

The comments follow weeks of overtures to the Trump camp by Number Ten, including a visit by Mrs May’s joint chiefs of staff – and give her a huge boost ahead of her major Brexit speech tomorrow.

Millions Face Dire Consequences Of Rundown Of Britain’s National Health Service

Prime Minister Theresa May and Conservative ministers have spent the last week denying that the National Health Service (NHS) is in an enormous crisis.

Last weekend, two patients at Worcestershire Royal Hospital died after waiting hours for treatment in hospital corridors. At the same time, more than 20 hospitals raised alerts that they could no longer provide basic services to the public. In response, the British Red Cross said, accurately, that the NHS was facing a “humanitarian crisis.”

According to results of a Freedom of Information-based study, none of the trusts reported paying a ransom or informed law enforcement. All preferred to deal with the attacks internally.

Trump, Kissinger and Ma playing on a crowded chessboard

Place your bets on who will be the major partner in the Trump, Kissinger and Ma law firm.

Kissinger has drafted a plan to officially recognize Crimea as part of Russia and lift the Obama administration’s economic sanctions.

The plan fits into Kissinger’s overall strategy — call it a traditional British Balance of Power, or Divide and Rule, approach — of breaking up the Eurasian front (Russia-China-Iran) that constitutes the real “threat” to what Mattis defines as the “established world order.”

There Is No Anti Semitism in Britain

In the end of October (2016) we learned from the British Jewish media that Police were called to University College London (UCL) amid claims of common assault and verbal intimidation by "pro-Palestinian protestors" at an event with an Israeli speaker.

We had to wait another three months for a single honest Jew (Jerry Lewis of Hampstead Synagogue) to admit in front of the notorious ultra Zionist BOD, that the event at UCL was actually provoked by Jewish groups that have nothing to do with the Jewish students community. At least one of those Jewish groups is funded by Israel according to Lewis. These groups invoke 'hatred' against Jews because this is how they justify their existence and sustain their funding.

REVEALED: Tiny Pacific island with just 42 people gets £18MILLION in UK Foreign Aid

BRITAIN’S aid budget has handed the equivalent of £426,000 to each inhabitant of a Pacific island over the past six years, it has been revealed.

More than £17.9million of UK taxpayer’s money has provided a school, health centre and ferry service to the those living on Pitcairn Island in the South Pacific halfway between Peru and New Zealand since 2011.

But just 42 people are said to live there.

The islanders, who are related to sailors who took party in the Mutiny on the Bounty, will receive almost £3.5m in 2017 - equivalent to £82,750 each.

In comparison the average British salary for last year was £26,500 - less than two thirds lower than what the islanders are getting.

Russia's navy is engaging in its highest level of activity for more than 25 years, Britain's First Sea Lord warns as Putin prepares for war 

The Royal Navy is facing its greatest challenge from Russia in more than 25 years, the First Sea Lord has warned.

Admiral Sir Philip Jones told his sailors that the Navy was dealing with the highest level of activity from submarines and warships since the end of the Cold War.
He added that the Navy was having to make 'difficult' cuts to equipment as Vladimir Putin's fleet had increased its activity.

In a New Year message to the Navy, Sir Philip said: 'In northern Europe and the Baltic, we are responding to the highest level of Russian naval activity since the end of the Cold War.'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Admiral Sir Philip Jones: sir, you seem to be developing a severe case of SMD (Selective Memory Disorder), and I would like to politely mention US and NATO troop movements of the last couple of weeks, available from public and common sources:

100’s of US tanks, heavy equipment flow into Europe to counter ‘Russian aggression’

Poland welcomes thousands of US troops in NATO show of force

US MARINES LAND IN NORWAY, SIGNALING DEPARTURE FROM POST-WW2 COMMITMENT TO RUSSIA

So what can we possibly assume that Vlad (the NON-impaler) and the Kremlin are thinking?!? Perhaps, in response to all these US/NATO movement of troops and equipment, current Russian naval deployments are possibly intended to keep Russia's options open, in case there is a false flag or direct attack against it?!?

Some bloggers have certainly been asking the question of whether the design intent of the deployment of all these NATO and US troops to Russia's borders, and even Blogger Mac Slavo has asked the question:

Is This The Coup In America? “U.S. Troops On Russian Border” To Start War Before Inauguration

I would politely suggest to Admiral Sir Philip Jones that it is highly possible that current Russian Naval activities may well be an asymmetrical response to the massive numbers of troops sent by the US and NATO to Russia's borders.

Britain Refuses To Sign Paris Declaration For Israel-Palestine ‘Two State Solution’

British officials rebelled during a Paris peace conference last weekend, refusing to sign a joint agreement supporting negotiations for a two-state solution for Israel-Palestine.

Can Trump Fix the Economy In 2017?

Paul Craig Roberts (born April 3, 1939) is an American economist, journalist, blogger and former civil servant. He reached the height of his government career when he became the United States Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy under President Reagan in 1981.

Dr. Roberts elucidates how Trump can fix the the Economy.

I cannot assure you that Trump is not another fake like Obama. But it is a mistake to begin with this assumption. Why write off in advance the only person with the courage to put his life on the line and take on the corrupt and evil Washington establishment?

Is Trump About to Debunk the Media’s ‘Putin-gate’ Conspiracy Theory?

So get out the popcorn, and put your feet up: the entertainment is about to begin!

Cold war drama fizzling fast

“It wouldn’t be a bad opening for a Tom Clancy novel about the Cold War” – that’s how the Los Angeles Times described the sequence of events leading up to the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats (“spies”) and the latest face-off between Washington and Moscow.

Indeed the whole episode of has about it a fictional aura, which is, after all, only appropriate, since the entire basis of this latest cold war drama is pure invention.

The Establishment Is Trying To Steal The Presidency From Trump And the Liberal-Left Is Helping

Where is the liberal-left’s moral conscience?

The US military, the CIA, and their whores in the US media are undemocratically pursuing their own agenda independent of the policy of the president-elect.

We could dismiss Trump’s admission as throwing a bone to the CIA so they can feel vindicated and get off his back, and the statements by Tillerson and Mattis could be dismissed as what has to be said in order to be confirmed.

US Intel Agencies Try to Strong-Arm Trump Into War with Russia

The big shots who run the country are trying to strong-arm ‘the Donald’ into carrying their water so the depredations can continue...

Powerful elites are using the credibility of the US Intelligence agencies to demonize Russia and prepare the country for war.

Last week’s 25-page report, that was released by the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, illustrates to what extent intelligence is being “fixed around the policy”.

The Intelligence Community has been coerced into compromising its credibility to incite fear of Russia and to advance the geopolitical ambitions of deep state powerbrokers.

Risks and Opportunities for 2017

Just a few days into 2017 and we can already say with a great degree of confidence that 2017 will be a historical year. Furthermore, I submit that 2017 will be the “Year of Trump” because one of roughly three things will happen: either Trump will fully deliver on his threats and promises, or Trump deliver on some, but far from all, his threats and promises or, finally, Trump will be neutralized by the Neocon-run Congress, media, intelligence community. He might even be impeached or murdered.

Of course, there is an infinity of sub-possibilities here, but for the purpose of this discussion I will call the first option “Trump heavy”, the second one “Trump light” and the third one “Trump down”.

Why Did the Al-Jazeera Expose Fail?

The Brits should certainly ask themselves how come it is left to a Qatari TV network to reveal the shocking news about their democracy being taken over by a foreign Lobby. Should this not be the concern for the BBC or the Guardian? And even after the Al-Jazeera expose, the British media remained silent and the question must be asked: would it have stayed as silent had Shai Masot been a Russian? Would it have stayed as silent if MP Joan Ryan was exposed as an Iranian lobbyist?

It all began with CNN published an article entitled “Intel chiefs presented Trump with claims of Russian efforts to compromise him”

Britain Preparing ‘Official’ Anti-Moscow Campaign – Russian Embassy

The Russian embassy in London says that the British authorities are looking to launch an official campaign against Moscow, based on what senior diplomats in Britain reportedly called a “concerted drive by Russia to undermine the UK.”

The embassy posted a statement on its website apparently meant as a follow-up to an article published by the Sunday Times in mid-December.

The nature of the charge against her is unclear and that information is refused when requested of court staff. The case took place late yesterday morning but it did not appear on any court lists until the hearing was past.
