'Public are the enemy’ of British foreign policy – expert

UK foreign policy strategists consider the British public to be their enemy and, thus, bombard it with lie upon lie about the UK’s secretive antics around the world, a renowned author and scholar has claimed.

Writing for the Huffington Post on Monday, historian and foreign policy expert Mark Curtis laid out what he claims is the truth behind British foreign policy in the Middle East.

“British wars abroad have two enemies. First, the official enemy, portrayed as a monster whom we always battle with noble intentions. But second is the enemy within – us, the public,” he argues in an article titled “We Know about the Lies over Iraq but What about Syria?”

The public, he claims, present a serious risk to continued British tinkering in the Middle East and so it is “subject to state ‘information operations’ to convey messages and obscure facts, usually via compliant media organisations.”

'Last resort' power plan scrapped as businesses decline to cut their usage

But National Grid has now announced it will not proceed with the plans for this winter after the tender showed that “minimal volume would be available”.

The company was seeking to recruit businesses that could reduce their demand by 177 megawatts (MW), but only had offers totalling about 30 MW from firms willing to take part in the scheme between 5pm and 6pm, the hour when UK demand typically hits the absolute peak and the last resort measures are most likely to be needed.

A spokesman insisted the failure of the scheme would not affect National Grid’s ability to keep the lights on this winter, as it has already procured extra generation capacity through a separate last-resort scheme that pays old power plants to stay open on standby.

However, it raises the prospect that keeping the lights on this winter will be more expensive than hoped, since demand-reduction measures were expected to be cheaper than calling on the old power plants to generate.

Betraying Brexit: the revolt of the elites against the people

Why is everyone so chilled out about the threats to Brexit? Why isn’t there more public fury over the plotting of lords and academics and experts to stymie Brexit and thwart the will of 17.4m people? In all the years I’ve been writing about politics, I cannot remember a time when democracy has been treated with as much disgust, with as much naked, Victorian-era elitism, as it is being today. And yet we’re all bizarrely mellow. We’re going about our business as if everything is normal, as if the elites aren’t right now, this very minute, in revolt against the people. We need to wake up.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a solution to this problem of an uppity ruling class. Just ask Charles I.

Farage Tears Into Osborne: ‘Pasty-faced, B*stard, I’d Have Dragged That Weasel Out By His Neck’

The newly-moustachioed, outgoing leader of Britain’s UK Independence Party (UKIP) has issued a devastating obituary of former Chancellor George Osborne’s political career, branding him a “pasty-faced bastard”, “a weasel”, and calling his behaviour during the European Union referendum campaign “despicable”.

Mr. Farage is no stranger to telling it the way he sees it. He told the Sunday Times that Mr. Osborne – who threatened Britons with higher taxes, recessions, and more if they voted to Leave the European Union – is a “departing weasel”.

“I’d have dragged him out by the scruff of the neck. I thought his behaviour was despicable,” said the outgoing UKIP leader, before adding: “Pasty-faced bastard. I’m pleased to see the back of him. I hope he never ever appears in public again.”

The UK Supreme Court has a clear legal path to block Article 50 and stop Brexit

A lawsuit brought by a hairdresser, an investment-firm manager, and a handful of other plaintiffs that demands Parliament hold a vote on whether to trigger Article 50 will be heard by the UK Supreme Court, according to Bloomberg.

The case is crucial because it sets out a legal path that could allow the House of Commons to ignore the result of the EU referendum.

The plaintiffs argue that an Article 50 request to leave the EU can only be triggered by a vote in Parliament, not the mere request of the prime minister.

If the Supreme Court agrees, then the Article 50 request would be put to the House of Commons. It is not certain that Article 50 would get enough votes.

Globalization Is Dead, But The Idea Is Not

I personally have the idea that if you think central banks -and perhaps governments- have the ability and the tools to prevent or cure financial crises, you’re in the more optimistic camp. And if you don’t, you’re a pessimist. A third option might be to think that no matter what central bankers do, things will solve themselves, but I don’t see much of that being floated. Not anymore.

What I do see are countless numbers of bankers and economists and pundits and reporters holding up high the concept of globalization (a.k.a. free trade, Open Society) as the savior of mankind and its economy.

And I’m thinking that no matter how great you think the entire centralization issue is, be it global or on a more moderate scale, it’s a lost case. Because centralization dies the moment it can no longer show obvious benefits for people and societies ‘being centralized’. Unless you’re talking a dictatorship.

£100,000 pensions that won't even buy a fish supper: Annuity payouts slashed again after last week's rate cut

Money Mail today reveals how the Bank of England's bid to boost the economy has left pensioners with incomes of just £6 a day after a lifetime of saving.

Aviva, Legal & General, LV= and Just Retirement have all axed the top deals for new customers who want to turn their pensions into an income for life, and are offering married couples a paltry inflation-proofed income of £2,256 a year at most for every £100,000 in their pots.
