Hammond Warns Of Brexit Global ‘Shadow,’ Says Is Mulling Trade Deal With China

British Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond says the country is considering a free trade deal with China, further warning that Brexit could cast a “shadow” on the world economy.

SAS troops poised to EVACUATE Britons from Turkey amid fear of SECOND military coup

With fears rebels could be about to try to overthrow the government for a second time, which is likely to result in a Turkish civil war, troops have moved into neighbouring Cyprus and are preparing a rescue mission to save stranded Britons.

Defence chiefs have drawn up emergency plans and fully armed soldiers, together with members of the Special Forces Support Group, are ready to fly into areas popular with tourists and help families get home safely.

Hundreds of jets, helicopters and other aircraft will be drafted in to help the estimated 50,000 Brits flee the danger.

The troops will be cleared to open fire if local rebels threaten to intervene.

One senior defence source told the Daily Star Sunday: “Turkey is on the brink. If there is another coup attempt then civil war will follow. If that happens there will be a major international crisis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but how is this different from an outright invasion of a sovereign country, unless the details of the evacuation are planned in concert with the Turkish government?!?

And looking at British logistics here, the short answer is, "Not at all!!"

“To whom much is given, much will be required.

“This is the very belief that made my father make this great sacrifice.
“To run for the most powerful yet unforgiving office in the world.

“There is no greater calling….

“Vote for the candidate who can’t be bought, sold, purchased, coerced, intimidated or steered from the path that is right, and just and true….

“To the veteran tuning into this speech from his or her hospital, whose been ignored and disrespected by an ungrateful system, my father is running for you….

“Vote for the one candidate who does not need this job.”

— Eric Trump, son of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, spoke Wednesday night at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

Jill Stein Just BLASTED the DNC Over Leaked Emails

“This latest revelation from WikiLeaks underscores how much the media is in bed with the DNC to circle the wagons around Hillary,” Stein told US Uncut in a phone interview. “The corruption and underhanded tactics and deception and conspiratorial efforts to silence Bernie and delegitimize him — I mean, welcome to the Green Party. This is what we’ve been up against forever.”

“The leaked DNC emails are the smoking gun that the Democratic establishment was rigging the game against Bernie the whole time,” Stein said in a press release issued by her campaign. “Instead of running the process impartially and letting the voters decide, top Democratic officials were doing all they could to ensure a Clinton victory, including collusion with journalists to present a pro-Clinton, anti-Sanders narrative.”

Unite boss claims Mi5 conspiracy against Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn

Asked if he believed the online abuse apparently posted by Mr Corbyn’s supporters was actually an effort to discredit them, the union boss said: “Of course… do people believe for one second that the security forces are not involved in dark practices?

“I have been around long enough, [this is] the type of stuff that we ultimately find out about, about who was involved… the 30-year rule.

“We found out just a couple of years ago that the chair of my union then, the Transport and General Workers Union, was an MI5 informant at the time that there was a strike taking place that I personally as a worker was involved in.

“[In] 1972, I was on strike for six weeks and 30 years later it comes out that the chair of my union at that time was an MI5 informant.”

UK’s Post-Brexit Future With America In Old Colonial Stomping Ground Asia, Says Academic

Donald Trump and the Revolt of the Proles

The Trump phenom is about economic insecurity. This isn’t about ideology, or racism, it’s about reality;

Western elites were shocked by Brexit, shocked that all their fear mongering and finger-wagging amounted to nothing. The same is true in the US, where the media’s daily attacks on Trump have failed to erode his base of support at all, in fact, they may have added to it.

That’s the reality that made Trump possible, and that’s what this election is about, economic insecurity.

Arise Sir Spin! David Cameron to shower honours on No 10 aides and cronies with a knighthood in the works for his PRESS CHIEF

David Cameron is to shower honours on Number 10 aides and Tory donors, with a knighthood awarded to his chief spin doctor.

The former editor of BBC news coverage, who took over at Downing Street after the departure of Andy Coulson in 2011, is likely to be knighted.

Article 50 was designed 'NEVER to be used' - says the man who wrote the EU divorce clause

THE MAN who wrote Article 50 has admitted it was NEVER supposed to be used as Britain gets set to divorce the European Union.

Giuliano Amato, a former Italian Prime Minister, claimed Britain must "lose" when it comes to finances - so they are forced to stay in the single market.

Mr Amato told a conference in Rome, he had inserted the get-out clause specifically to prevent the British from complaining that there was no clear cut, official way for them to bail out of the Union.

He said: "I wrote Article 50, so I know it well.

"My intention was that it should be a classic safety valve that was there, but never used. It is like having a fire extinguisher that should never have to be used. Instead, the fire happened.

"When it comes to the economy they have to lose.”

Will the US use a quick trade deal with Brexit Britain as an EU TTIP trojan horse?

American officials may be looking to sign a quick and easy trade deal with the UK following last month’s Brexit vote in an attempt to breathe life into the stalled TTIP agreement between the US and EU.

US attitudes towards a bilateral agreement with Britain have softened just months after President Barack Obama said Britain would “go to the back of the queue” for trade deals if it voted for Brexit.

US Secretary of State John Kerry discussed a bilateral deal with his UK counterpart, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, during a visit to London this week.

North Korea makes extraordinary claim about Theresa May

NUCLEAR North Korea has accused Theresa May of misleading the British public over the threat the pariah state's atomic arsenal poses to the UK.

In an extraordinary intervention in the debate over the renewal of Britain's Trident nuclear weapons deterrent, North Korea's foreign ministry claimed it was "illogical" to suggest Kim Jong-Un's stockpile would be aimed at the UK.

A spokesman said: "It is illogical that the DPRK's nuclear weapons pose a threat to the UK.

"It is a pity that the UK makes an excuse for the building of [nuclear submarines] by finding fault with the DPRK, thousands [of] kilometres away from it."

Blundering HMRC paid out £1.9 million in compensation after sending company bankrupt with tax demand cock-up

The embarrassing blunder has been disclosed in the fine print of the organisation's annual report and accounts.

The document also reveals that the department wrote off £120 million last year after scaling back efforts to recover overpaid tax credits.

The setbacks happened during Lin Homer's final year in charge of HMRC.

She walked away from the chief executive role in April with a £2.4million pension pot despite a scandal-hit tenure in charge.

The 59-year-old is entitled to a index-linked income of around £125,000 a year - nearly two thirds of the £190,000 salary she had been earning.

Her pension pot grew by £225,000 last year, when she also received a £20,000 bonus, despite criticism of the taxman’s performance.

NATO’s secrets flow to Russia, Michael Fallon says

The British Secretary of Defence claimed that Vladimir Putin knows content of the secret NATO's documents after half an hour any document comes into being.
According to him, this situation existed even before Vladimir Putin became President. Conservative MP Colonel Bob Stewart, who commanded UN forces in Bosnia, accused Nato members of colluding with Moscow in the 1990s, The Daily Mirror wrote 21 July. However, the Colonel asserted that these are Britain's allies who cannot keep secrets, but not London itself. "When something says 'Nato: secret', that's the last bloody thing it is," he said. The MPs were astonished at how badly intelligence of their allies is organized. As it turned out, the NATO learnt about 'Russia's taking Crimea' only after it was brought to light by the media.
Webmaster addition: If they are pushing 'Russia's taking Crimea', then the whole article is propaganda!

HMS Ambush was in the area as part of the Navy’s ‘Perisher’ submarine command course, which is used to select new commanders.

It has been reported that as many as six officers were on the course, which sometimes also has trainees from other countries.

GMB viewers blast ‘disgusting’ report from Buckingham Palace while the country ‘starves'

“Here's @GMB showing off Buckingham Palace's opulence while the rest of the country has no money. How delightful,” sighed one audience member.

Another agreed: ”People are starving and freezing on our streets, nobody gives a shiny s***e about the royal family!!!!”

“Just remember where all the obscene amounts of money go next time you fancy doing some sort of charity appeal,” shrieked this particularly disgruntled social media user.

'Screaming was pointless,' survivors tell of school abuse by Christian Brothers

The Christian Brothers were meant to be men of God - a religious order within the Catholic Church.

At their St Ninian’s school in Fife, though, two of the Brothers were men of unspeakable cruelty who stole innocence from children and left the deepest scars.

John Farrell and Paul Kelly were today convicted of 11 counts of sexual and physical abuse against six children in their care. Children as young as 11. The pair were doing it with impunity through the 1970s and 80s.

...

There was no point in shouting or screaming because nobody would hear you.

And if they did hear you they’d know what was going on, so screaming was pointless.

Thought we'd escaped TTIP by leaving the EU? Think again - it's setting the terrifying blueprint for our future trade deals

Despite being without national trade policy for four decades, we can predict a lot about the UK’s future trade deals outside of the EU from the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and what we know gives great cause for concern.

If and when Brexit is completed, TTIP will not directly apply to a UK outside the single market. But with the US knocking on the door to create a trade deal with the UK we know its interests are the same as expressed in TTIP. All the warning signs from TTIP suggest that under the current government vested interests will be satisfied ahead of the wider public interest.

Blair in the dock: Bereaved military families crowdfund nearly £50k to sue former PM over Iraq

Donations are pouring in to a crowdfunding page launched to help families of soldiers killed in Iraq take legal action against former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

The families’ aim to raise £50,000 (US$65,000) was close to being achieved on Tuesday afternoon, when the campaign already boasted more than £44,000.

Launched by Roger Bacon and Reg Keys, whose sons Matthew and Tom were killed in the war, the page has already reached 89 percent of its target with 30 days still to run before their deadline.

Bacon and Keys say although they accept those who enlist for the armed forces do so in the understanding they may be hurt or killed, “the long-awaited Iraq Inquiry (Chilcot) Report has confirmed that there were serious failings in the lead-up to, planning and conduct of the War, which led to so many unnecessary deaths.

“Our armed forces must never again be so callously sacrificed by political ambition and the irresponsibility and failings of Government and Whitehall.

British PM Willing to Nuke Hundreds of Thousands; Parliament Approves Funding

In one of the first high profile parliamentary debates since she took over the premiership last week, British PM Theresa May today insisted she would have no hesitation in ordering nuclear strikes abroad that would kill hundreds of thousands of civilians.

The somewhat blunt, somewhat genocidal answer appears to have been the right one for the crowd, as it wasn’t long thereafter that parliament agreed to spend upward of $40 billion modernizing their nuclear weapons arsenal. Many analysts have suggested that the $40 billion is a gross underestimate, and the nukes will end up costing far more.

The question about massacring civilians with a nuclear strike is a common one during such debates, and historically one prime ministers dodge. Former Foreign Secretary Sir Geoffrey Howe said he believed it was a question no prime minister would ever directly answer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WOW, that didn't take long!!

May's wardrobe advisor might want to consider clothing her in shades of "genocidal red"; that would really be appropriate right now!

UK government admits 'Snooper's Charter' would allow it to ban end-to-end encryption

The UK government has publicly admitted that parts of the Investigatory Powers Bill (IPB), better known as the 'Snooper’s Charter', would allow it to force companies to ban end-to-end encryption.

In what may be viewed as a huge assault on the public’s privacy, not to mention digital security, the government would ask internet and communication service providers to “develop and maintain a technical capability to remove encryption that has been applied to communications or data”. As one member of the House of Lords put it, when debating the IPB, this essentially means that companies may not use end-to-end encryption, and could leave the public at risk, not to mention setting a supremely dangerous precedent.

Craig Murray: Fox, Gould, Werritty and Israel – Please write to your MP

Hansard Publc Admininstration Committee 24/11/2011
Q<369> Paul Flynn: Okay. Matthew Gould has been the subject of a very serious complaint from two of my constituents, Pippa Bartolotti and Joyce Giblin. When they were briefly imprisoned in Israel, they met the ambassador, and they strongly believe—it is nothing to do with this case at all—that he was serving the interest of the Israeli Government, and not the interests of two British citizens. This has been the subject of correspondence.

In your report, you suggest that there were two meetings between the ambassador and Werritty and Liam Fox. Questions and letters have proved that, in fact, six such meetings took place. There are a number of issues around this. I do not normally fall for conspiracy theories, but the ambassador has proclaimed himself to be a Zionist and he has previously served in Iran, in the service. Werritty is a self-proclaimed—

Robert Halfon: Point of order, Chairman. What is the point of this?

Paul Flynn: Let me get to it. Werritty is a self-proclaimed expert on Iran.

Chair: I have to take a point of order.

Robert Halfon: Mr Flynn is implying that the British ambassador to Israel is working for a foreign power, which is out of order.

Mike Flynn: ‘Americans Are Fed Up With the Bullshit’

Americans fed up with the bullshit they've been fed for many years. They want the truth.

Flynn: This is where I think the world has misread Donald Trump. He has no intention to step away without examining all relationships that we have. His intent is to relook at the way we are organized globally, where the US is sort of expected to be a global leader, but relook at these alliances and these charters that we are under to make sure that they are still viable for the 21st century. It doesn’t mean that President Trump comes into office and NATO goes away. But I would say that NATO as a political alliance does need to be relooked at in terms of everything — resourcing, capabilities.

Other passengers said it was 'mayhem' and said the flashy Terminal 5 'is starting to resemble a 3rd World country domestic airport.'

The demise of Sanders’ “political revolution”

Throughout the Sanders campaign, the Socialist Equality Party has welcomed the broad shift to the left that it revealed in the thinking of millions of working people and youth, while warning that the Vermont senator would inevitably disappoint his supporters.

Bernie Sanders ended his presidential campaign Tuesday, not with a bang but a whimper. The Vermont senator formally endorsed his rival in an undignified prostration before the Democratic Party establishment and Wall Street’s favored presidential candidate, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The unity rally featuring Sanders and Clinton in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, had all the spontaneity and enthusiasm of a going-out-of-business sale. The funereal atmosphere was perhaps fitting

‘Untrained’ soldiers to be put on front line in manpower crisis: Army recruits with basic training could face jihadis in terrorist attack

Army recruits who have yet to complete their training are to be deployed on the front line for the first time in British history because of a deepening manpower crisis, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

The shock move – which has been condemned by military experts as a sign of the ‘dire’ state of the Army – means soldiers who have had only basic training without learning more advanced skills could face armed jihadis in a terrorist attack and be placed in other life-threatening situations.

The controversial change, revealed in documents seen by The Mail on Sunday, will add up to 5,000 full-time troops and 1,800 part-time troops to the Army at a time when its numbers have dwindled to the lowest ever in modern history.

Tony Blair’s Former Propagandist: “Referendums Are Dangerous in a Parliamentary Democracy”

In an interview with Hala Gorani of CNN, the man who served as Tony (the war criminal) Blair’s Director of Communications from 1997 to 2003, Alastair Campbell, denounced referendums as a danger to democracy. Campbell is clearly enraged that the British people had the audacity to vote against the wishes of the establishment; and his remarks are the epitome of elitist thinking – which holds that ordinary people are too stupid to make important decisions on their own.

Campbell is also regurgitating the Orwellian propaganda line that is being spread throughout the Western media: that somehow a democratic referendum is undemocratic. Just because the vote flew in the face of the British establishment, the presstitutes are engaging in intellectual jujitsu in order to demonise the leave vote. Would they be doing so if Britain voted to remain in the EU? I think not.

Press TV: We have heard certain people privy to its contents say there's nothing in it which implicates the Saudis but we've heard the exact opposite from others high up in the government who have also viewed its pages. Could it be possible that the original document may have been altered to salvage ties with Riyadh?

Vladimir Putin Is The Only Leader The West Has — Paul Craig Roberts

Putin does not want war. He is doing everything in his power to avoid it.

The trip-point of World War III will be the installation of Washington’s missiles in Poland and Romania. As Putin recently made clear to the imbecilic Western journalists, these missiles can easily and secretly be changed from anti-ballistic missiles to nuclear attack missiles that can strike their Russian targets within 5 or fewer minutes of launch, thus depriving Russia of its retaliatory deterrent. Once these missiles are in place, Washington can issue orders to Russia.

Whatever the evil men and women in Washington who are gambling with the life of the planet think, Russia is not going to accept these missiles.
