Prince Philip 'unfaithful' to the Queen & Harry 'can’t actually fly a helicopter,’ claims Labour MP

Dent Coad, the recently-elected MP for Kensington, is reported to have made the comments at a fringe event ‘Reigning in the Monarchy’ at the party’s conference in Brighton.

“Harry can’t even fly a helicopter. He tried to pass the helicopter exam about four times and he couldn’t get through it at all so he always goes for the co-pilot,” she is quoted by the Sun as telling activists.

“So he just sits there going ‘vroom vroom.’”

She also said Harry and his brother William were “not very bright.”

“Just let them drift away, be playboys or whatever.”

Prince Philip, 96, was next on her hit list.

“The Queen might want to step back when her soulmate is gone. He’s been quite unfaithful for quite a few years,” she said.

“I am the royal family’s worst nightmare,” she added.

Flashback: Crippling PFI deals leave Britain £222bn in debt

Every man, woman and child in Britain is more than £3,400 in debt – without knowing it and without borrowing a single penny – thanks to the proliferation of controversial deals used to pay for infrastructure such as schools and hospitals.

The UK owes more than £222bn to banks and businesses as a result of Private Finance Initiatives (PFIs) – “buy now, pay later” agreements between the government and private companies on major projects.

...

Basically, a PFI is like a mortgage that the government takes out on behalf of the public. The average annual cost of meeting the terms of the UK’s PFI contracts will be more than £10bn over the next decade.

And the cost of servicing PFIs is growing. Last year, it rose by £5bn. It could rise further, with inflation. The upward creep is the price taxpayers’ pay for a financing system which allows private firms to profit from investing in infrastructure.

22yo Man Raped In Alleyway After Leaving Glasgow Nightclub

The victim was making his way back from a nightclub when he was sexually assaulted at around 3:40am on a quiet lane between Parnie Street and the Trongate in Glasgow.

The man met the male suspect after leaving the venue.

The suspect has been described as black, but no further description has been given.

Police have cordoned off the area as they investigate the incident, and have appealed to the public for information.

Trump's New UK Ambassador Wrongly Accuses Britain of Spending 'Minimum' on Its Military

Donald Trump’s new ambassador to Britain has incorrectly accused the Government of spending the “minimum” on defence.

Woody Johnson, a 70-year-old billionaire, suggested the UK’s funding was not enough to maintain its global standing.

“Whether you have the capability you need to be a powerful nation going forward, I think you are going to have to determine,” he told the Telegraph.

"We spend at least twice that much and we could still spend more. And we probably should spend more as well."

(*Sounds like he's on point with The Trump Agenda to me !)

Man convicted of terror offence for refusing to give police phone and laptop password

The director of an advocacy group has been convicted of a terror offence after refusing to give police passwords to access his phone and laptop at Heathrow Airport.

Muhammad Rabbani vowed to appeal the first verdict of its kind after being handed a 12 month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £620 in costs at Westminster Magistrates' Court.

The director of Cage was stopped under the Terrorism Act on 20 November last year after returning home from a wedding in Doha, Qatar.

Officers demanded access to his phone and laptop under wide-ranging powers granted by Schedule 7 of the law.

It allows police and immigration officials to stop, search, question and detain anyone at British ports and airports to determine whether they were involved in the “commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism” – with or without reasonable suspicion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Like all the other erosions of our civil liberties this law will do nothing to stop real terrorists, who know not to use the internet for communications or to keep sensitive data on their phones and laptops.

The above hollowed-out coin can hold a micro SD card. Micro SD cards can hold huge amounts of data, topping out at 400 Gbytes; more than a third of a terabyte.

Real criminals and terrorists will use devices like this to protect their secrets, while law abiding citizens who simply desire their right to privacy are harassed and, as in this case, arrested.

Tony Blair: British public is changing its mind on my decision to invade Iraq in 2003

Asked why the Iraq conflict still causes outrage across the UK, the former Prime Minister said his justification for taking the country to war was still a "huge issue" for the public.

Speaking to Politico, he said: "Because it was a hugely contested decision, and because the intelligence turned out to be, in many cases, faulty, and obviously that’s a huge issue for people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It wasn't faulty, you were flat-out lying!

Labour faces new anti-Semitism row after speaker at conference fringe calls for freedom of speech to cover Holocaust denial

Labour faced a fresh anti-Semitism row last night after a speaker at a party conference fringe event called for free speech to extend to holocaust denial.

At the same meeting, activists cheered as a speaker called for Jewish and pro-Israel groups to be expelled from the party.

Israeli-American author Miko Peled told a conference fringe meeting Labour members should support the freedom to “discuss every issue, whether it’s the holocaust, yes or no, whether it’s Palestine liberation - the entire spectrum.

“There should be no limits on the discussion.”

Trillions of pounds at risk without Brexit deal on derivatives, warns Bank of England

The Bank of England has called for special arrangements to be made in order to protect the UK derivatives market when it leaves the European Union.

In today's statement from the central bank's Financial Policy Committee (FPC), the BoE said that it was essential to ensure the protection of the £20 trillion currently held in derivatives contracts between the UK and other EU country members.

Seeking to mitigate any likely risks of disruption to financial markets following Brexit, the FPC said it was assessing the derivatives situation, and "exploring actions" that could be taken where it believed that it might be too “complex and difficult” for financial firms to offset risks arising from the continuity of contracts between UK and EU27 counterparties, themselves.

Bath Spa University transgender research block labelled 'astonishing'

A therapist says he is "astonished" by a university's decision to stop him studying people who decide to reverse gender reassignment operations.

James Caspian wanted to write a thesis on "detransition" as part of his master's degree in counselling and psychotherapy at Bath Spa University.

He said it was rejected by the university's ethics committee because it could be "politically incorrect".

French au pair found murdered and burned in London garden

A 40-year-old man, Ouissem Medouni, and a 34-year-old woman, Sabrina Kouider, were charged on Friday morning for murder of an unknown person.

The pair lived on Pulborough Road, which leads off Wimbledon Park Road, where the body was found at a residential address.

Neighbours had become alarmed at the "foul-smelling smoke" coming from Kouider's garden and a young boy reportedly raised the alarm after he scaled the apartment's back yard gate and saw a huge bonfire with a man throwing what he thought were 'sticks' on the flames.

Echoes of WWI: China, the US, and the Next "Great" War - corbettreport


Published on Sep 22, 2017SHOW NOTES AND MP3: https://www.corbettreport.com/?p=24001

In the early 20th century, the world’s dominant superpower looked warily on the rise of a competitor to its supremacy. The machinations of the British to contain the rise of Germany led inexorably to the First World War. Once again in the early 21st century, the world’s dominant superpower is looking warily on the rise of a competitor. Will the American Empire’s machinations to contain the rise of China lead to the Third World War? Or is the American/Chinese conflict another engineered conflict for the benefit of the few at the expense of the many? Join James Corbett as he presents "Echoes of World War I" to the Open Mind Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Uber stripped of its operating license in London

Uber has lost its operating license in London, Transport for London (TfL) has announced.

“TfL has concluded that Uber London Limited is not fit and proper to hold a private hire operator license,” it said in a statement.

“TfL considers that Uber’s approach and conduct demonstrate a lack of corporate responsibility in relation to a number of issues which have potential public safety and security implications.”

AIRPORT POLICE DEMANDED AN ACTIVIST’S PASSWORDS. HE REFUSED. NOW HE FACES PRISON IN THE UK.

It was not the first time Muhammad Rabbani had problems when returning to the United Kingdom from travels overseas. But on this occasion something was different — he was arrested, handcuffed, and hauled through London’s largest airport, then put into the back of a waiting police van.

Rabbani is the 36-year old international director of Cage, a British group that was founded in 2003 to raise awareness about the plight of prisoners held at the U.S. government’s Guantanamo Bay detention site. Today, the organization has a broader focus and says it is working to highlight “the erosion of the rule of law in the context of the War on Terror.” Due to its work campaigning for the legal rights of terrorism suspects, Cage has attracted controversy, and Rabbani has faced the government’s wrath.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am quite sure that the Occupied Unhinged Surveilled States of Amerika still tortures, or outsources torture; they just don't want the world to know about it.

I hope that Mr. Rabbani makes the information he recieved from the formerly tortured individual public, just as soon as is reasonably, and legally, possible.

The Crazy Imbalance of Russia-gate

Tillerson State Dept. Demanding Israel Hand Back Millions in U.S. Military Aid

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has been pushing the Trump White House to demand that Israel give back to the United States millions of dollars in military aid, prompting pushback in the West Wing and further fueling ongoing tensions between Foggy Bottom and the White House over a range of key diplomatic issues, according to multiple sources briefed on the situation.

The Washington Free Beacon first reported on Friday that the State Department has been lobbying the White House to call for Israel to hand back some $75 million in U.S. military aid that was awarded to the Jewish state above the Obama administration’s financial request in 2016.

The Bombast of Nikki Haley

She’s a lightweight, and a warmongering globalist.

As Governor of South Carolina, and a member of that state’s House of Representatives, Haley’s foreign policy experience is absolutely nil. Nor does her degree in accounting from Clemson University inspire confidence. Her record thus far has consisted of giving voice to the neoconservative tendency in the GOP – the very people Trump defeated in the GOP primaries. The conventional Republican foreign policy clichés we’ve heard for years pour forth from her mouth like vomit from a drunk. Her recent speech before the American Enterprise Institute on the nuclear deal with Iran is a perfect case in point.

Sep 22 17:15

America’s Jews Are Driving America’s Wars

We don’t need a war with Iran because Israel wants one and some rich and powerful American Jews are happy to deliver. Seriously, we don’t need it.

They have been very successful at faking the Iranian threat, so much so that nearly all Republican and most Democratic congressmen as well as much of the media seem to be convinced that Iran needs to be dealt with firmly, most definitely by using the U.S. military, and the sooner the better.

And while they are doing it, the issue that nearly all the Iran haters are Jewish has somehow fallen out of sight, as if it does not matter. But it should matter.

Florence & The MAY-Chine? Britons Ridicule PM’s Italy Speech As Brexit Hangs In The Balance

Theresa May has been ridiculed after she attempted to rescue Brexit talks with yet more un-catchy slogans and a turgid attempt at reaching out to EU leaders.

UK Brexit negotiator David Davis has failed to convince his counterparts in Brussels to continue negotiations as they insist the May government first sets out whether it intends to meet its current EU spending commitments – which could cost billions.

Theresa May Asks EU For Two-Year Brexit Transition Period

May, who was speaking in the Italian city of Florence on Friday, said her country’s divorce from the EU does not mean that the country wishes to be a partner, and not a member state of the EU.

Donald Trump Apparently Snubbed Theresa May When She Asked Him About The Iran Nuclear Deal

Donald Trump refused to tell Theresa May whether he intends to stick to a nuclear deal with Iran – despite her asking him outright, the US secretary of state has said.

The US president told journalists on Wednesday he had made a decision on the future of the historic agreement, but would not reveal his thinking to fellow world leaders at the United Nations.

In his speech to the UN, Trump said the deal – forged in 2015 between Iran and the US, the UK, France, China, Russia, and Germany in a landmark bid to prevent Iran developing nuclear weapons – was "an embarrassment to the United States".

Listening to the Donald at the UN – The Saker

No matter how bad things look now, Hillary President would have been infinitely worse!

In conclusion, what I take away from Trump's UN speech is a sense of relief for the rest of the planet and a sense of real worry for the US. Ever since the Neocons overthrew Trump and made him what is colloquially referred to as their “bitch” the US foreign policy has come to a virtual standstill.

Sure, the Americans talk a lot, but at least they are doing nothing. That paralysis, which is a direct consequence of the internal infighting, is a blessing for the rest of the planet

England’s second biggest police force STILL runs Windows XP leaving it vulnerable to a Wannacry-type attack

Following a Freedom of Information request, England's second largest police force told the BBC that 1,518 of its computers – representing 20.3 per cent of all devices - ran on Window XP.

This is despite the fact that Microsoft no longer provides support for the operating system, leaving it vulnerable to hackers.

Speaking to the BBC, Dr Steven Murdoch, a cyber-security expert at University College London, said: 'Even if security vulnerabilities are identified in XP, Microsoft won't distribute patches in the same way it does for later releases of Windows.

How the UN Covers for US Aggression

UN is not out to get the U.S. Rather, it has largely been America’s tool since its inception, it has repeatedly covered Uncle Sam’s overly-exposed butt as he (a.k.a. “the royal we”) has gone around the world on a three decade-long military bender since the end of the Cold War.

And therein lies the truly pernicious part of the Trumped-up case against the U.N. … because, like so much of America’s growing cult of grievance, it reflects an ever-widening gap between America’s stated ideals and its self-serving behavior around the world.

The arrogance conveyed by Trump’s speech is unprecedented.

I wonder if whoever wrote the deplorable speech intended to embarrass Trump and inadvertently embarrassed America as well, or whether the speechwriter(s) is so imbued with the neoconservative arrogance and hubris of our time that the speechwriter was simply blind to the extraordinary contradictions that stood out like sore thumbs all through the speech.

Moscow wonders what Russian flag has to do with BBC story on jihadist propaganda in UK

The Russian Embassy in the UK was outraged after a BBC story about online jihadist propaganda in the UK featured a Russian flag. Moscow wondered what the tricolor has to do with extremists on British soil.

The BBC article dubbed ‘UK 'biggest audience' in Europe for jihadist web content’ appeared on the website on Tuesday. The report cited a study by the Policy Exchange think tank, saying that “online jihadist propaganda attracts more clicks in the UK than any other country in Europe.”

The think tank doesn’t mention Russia at all in its 131-page long report. Nor does the BBC story.

However, the cover picture for the story featured vague figures with smartphones against the background of the Russian white-blue-red tricolor.

Compsci degrees aren't returning on investment for coders – research

University in the UK has never been more expensive. But at least doing a computer science degree guarantees a nice fat, well-paid job at the end, right? Wrong.

Coders with a bachelor's degree only earn £3,000 more a year than those who don't have one, according to a survey of 4,700 developers in the UK by Stack Overflow, a community site frequented by developers for answers to technical questions.

This is despite the average degree now costing £9,000 a year in tuition fees alone. Average student debt is now more than £50,000, according the Institute of Fiscal Studies.

The research found that the median salary of those who did not have higher education was £35,000 per year, while those who gained a bachelor's degree earned £38,000 and postgraduates took home £42,000.

Removing Offensive Monuments

The eyesore presidential libraries

The social justice warrior charge to purge the United States of all monuments relating in any way to the Confederacy has been rapidly expanding to include the scourge represented by all white people all through history.

Now, I would suggest that turnabout is fair play so if we are all agreeing that monuments must be destroyed to right historic wrongs, I am interested in making up my own little list based on the things that I disapprove of. As readers of this site are aware, I am a critic of illegal behavior by the United States government, to include torture, targeted assassinations by drone and starting wars without any reason to do so, so that would be a good place to start.

I don’t think that millions of murdered people, including hundreds of thousands of children, are “mistakes” (how would you react it somebody conceded to you that Hitler and Stalin made “mistakes”?). But there is something even more insidious in this notion of “mistake”.

From Prophesy to Reality – Government Prediction of 30 Year Terror Campaign Comes to Life

The partial explosion of a homemade bomb on a packed underground commuter train in southwest London on Friday morning has moved a prediction just six months ago by the UK’s government, of a terrorism offensive to match that of the 30 year long IRA campaign that killed and injured thousands – to reality. In the meantime, as one would expect in Britain, another huge police and intelligence operation began and then ended with calls for ever greater losses of civl liberties.

The government called a meeting of its COBRA emergency committee before anything was known about the incident. Later that afternoon Conservative Prime Minister Theresa May announced in a televised statement that the threat level was being raised to critical for an undefined period.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

First, prayers for those who were hurt, their friends, and their families.

But that being said, one has to ask; if, as has happened a number of times in the US, UK, and France, and the perps were known to the police and security agencies, why were they not picked up and questioned, and ultimately tried under the rule of law?!?

Fear makes people more vulnerable to having their freedoms curtailed, so I simply cannot rule out that some attacks have been allowed to move forward for just that reason; to strangle civil society with more and more draconian laws and edicts with dictatorial impunity.

Trump better stop encouraging EU secession or kiss Texas goodbye, warns Juncker

The EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has called on US President Donald Trump to stop applauding Brexit and become more supportive of the block. He threatened to hit back if Trump does not change his tune.

“Brexit isn’t the end. A lot of people would like it that way, even people on another continent where the newly elected US president was happy that Brexit was taking place and has asked other countries to do the same,” Juncker said on Thursday during a conference of the center-right European People’s Party in Malta.

Soldiers drafted in and extra armed police on the streets as Theresa May raises terror level to CRITICAL after ISIS claim Tube bucket-bomb attack was carried out by a cell of several jihadis

Armed police have flooded London's streets as the terror threat level was raised to critical amid fears the Parsons Green bomber could strike again, Theresa May announced tonight.

The introduction of Operation Temperer will see soldiers replacing police at key sites including nuclear power plants to free up extra armed officers for regular patrols.

Scotland Yard said it is making 'excellent' progress in hunting the suspected terrorist who set off a crude bucket bomb on a packed commuter train by Parsons Green tube station in west London at 8.20am.
Mrs May said in a statement from Number 10: 'The Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre has now decided to raise the national threat level from severe to critical - this means their assessment is that a further attack may be imminent.'

Minutes later Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley suggested there might have been more than one person involved, stating that police were 'chasing down suspects'.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prayers for the people of the UK; but most of all, let us hope and pray that the British government doesn't see this as their "golden opportunity" to seize the day (in a very "V for Vendetta" kind of way) to heap even more repression and curtailment of the rights of British citizens.

Royal Navy a 'laughing stock' with three quarters of its warships out of action and 'struggling to protect British citizens'

The Royal Navy can only send a quarter of its warships to sea due to spending cuts which have left the armed forces "struggling to protect Britain's citizens", the Telegraph has learned.

Currently 13 of the Navy's 19-strong fleet of Type 23 frigates and Type 45 destroyers are unable to go to sea due to a lack of manpower, fuel and supplies, senior military sources have revealed.

The cuts to defence spending have also severely hampered Britain’s response to Hurricane Irma.

HMS Ocean, the amphibious assault ship that currently serves as the Royal Navy’s flagship, was sent to provide support to the British overseas territories in the Caribbean but suffered engine problems and has now been delayed by a week.

35 False Matches and 1 Erroneous Arrest As Police Secretly Test Facial Recognition Technology

By Nicholas West

All things biometric are sweeping across the world at warp speed now, from security on planes and trains to check-ins at conferences and events, banking systems, etc. But the use of facial recognition tech in policing is being touted as the next big thing to keep the public safe. In fact, facial recognition technology is already working on the next level of development with researchers constructing new algorithms that supposedly can penetrate the most simple method of avoidance: wearing a mask.

However, a recent event in Britain should cause those who are high on this technology to rein in their enthusiasm. According to a Sky News report, a recent carnival in Notting Hill was treated as a testing ground for police facial recognition systems. The results were troubling...

HOW CORPORATE LOBBYISTS DOMINATE MEETINGS WITH UK AND EU BREXIT NEGOTIATORS

The far-reaching Brexit agreement that will govern the UK’s exit from the European Union is not only being shaped at the negotiating table, but also by the lobbyists who are trying to influence each side’s position papers and red lines.

New analysis of official statistics on lobby meetings with ministers from the UK’s Department for Exiting the EU (DExEU) and members of the EU’s Brexit Task Force reveals a common willingness to privilege the representatives of corporate interests above all others:

Between October 2016 and March 2017, DExEU staff had six meetings with big business representatives for every one meeting with an NGO, a trade union or a think tank. This figure may even just be the tip of the iceberg, as Brexit lobby meetings are also likely to take place with DExEU officials not required to disclose meetings.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Such negotiations are never about how the Brexit may positively influence the lives of every-day, working Brits; they are always about how corporations are going to game the system, to better their own financial states.
