Read Guido’s Daily Star Column

In this week’s Guido column:

  • Daily_Star_SundayFind out why David Cameron told Guido that William Hague should be out in the cold.
  • Find out how union’s 143 year-old shindig has got itself an undeniable £1.4 million deficit.
  • Guido recalls the Christmas party where Ed Miliband was on fire – literally.
  • Austerity has hit Polly Toynbee and she has sold her Italian villa, no more anti-poverty paens penned from the poolside whilst sipping prosecco. What a lot she got – you’ll never guess how much. Unless you buy the Star…

All for just £1..

      This would have never happened under the Labour Party Ed. I am on holiday at the moment, as all responsible senior public sector senior managers are apt to do when a crisis arises, the Grand Master is in full damage control mode. One has to sympathise with him, when all his senior manager placements in ‘non jobs’ in the public sector, to implement his policies, see their jobs put at risk by this Government’s ill thought out reforms. Obviously he cannot allow this to happen and certainly not let any Government implement their policies over his own. If that stupid Constable had not panicked on the phone when Michael Crick questioned him, we would have got away with it; the Tory Party would have been neutered by fear of what happened to Mitchell, and the Grand Master would have been able to continue to run things as before. What a shame. Jahbulon.

            Andrew Mitchell might now know what it is like to be alone fighting against the system.

            Maybe when you get back to real work you could consider the whole issue of isolated individuals. Why is justice not allowed for some. It is just impossible to be heard. The Police blank them. The government blanks them. The public paid officials threaten their life and safety. Then when life proves them right they are threatened.

            So when will this country be seen to look after the people? Ignore the unions, the activist groups and the mobs, and and ask the question could a single person ever get justice in this broken country.

            Andrew Mitchell you know the answer, but unlike you I have the proof.

            Joining a cult as Cruise did is different. Understanding how cults operate illuminates why otherwise rational people make such irrational decisions.

            Leaving cults is difficult, deprogramming the subject is usually required. Cults rely on a psychological dependence, and sometimes use threat of force or blackmail, but rarely blackmail. Lisa Macpherson is an example of where this can lead to.

            Psychiatrist above mentioned something about labels which was I guess more to your point. I thought your point was more to do with manipulation of opinion to accepting and forming assumptions about the meaning and power of labels, which perhaps had been mistakenly corrected.

            The secret is understanding how to present something such that you are willing to believe and assume it as truth, and act accordingly. This only requires in part what you want to believe. The art is in successfully suggesting what your beliefs and actions in fact should be.

            BW: I do not destroy anything either with that final statement, rather I confer a notion as to how others may exploit the knowledge of how the individual forms their reality, and acts within it.

            I make no claims to definitive fact, but if you reflect on how you feel about certain things and really analyze why, in many cases there is no definite answer. Odd – as you should know yourself ? This is quite normal, and is because many aspects of our frame of reference are not based on fact but a suggestion which seemed reasonable at the time, however forgotten since. The echo remains, most term this experience.

            The psychiatrist is a fraud with one purpose, of that your point of view is 100% correct.

            To Anon: Check the definition of cult, and you will see that by definition they have to ‘brainwash’. There is no alternative. When the definition is understood, the difference with religion becomes clear. I do question Islam on coercion though, but it does not qualify as a cult.

            The notion of where the soul is located is an interesting one you raise, as is to which seat of the spirit a belief system appeals to.

            (One should perhaps not forget that many in the world believe the liver to be where the soul is located, as did we until recently.)

            The trinity of thought, reason and emotion are central to all men, and which when centered appropriately provide stability.

            It is ignorance of reason which is a major problem for many today. One suspects this is the why many are ‘unbalanced’ and opinion is so easy to polarize.

            Assuming the trinity are all located in the mind, by no means necessarily correct, one can see how the psychiatrist can build their faux cases easily.

            Fluoride is a toxin, and is bad. (It is a byproduct from aluminium production, and used as a rat poison: In dental hygiene, it is the toxic effect on bacteria which cause plaque which is what is of ‘benefit': It has neuro-toxic effects in humans)

            Lots of other rubbish as well – eg. Chlorine is a carcinogen, lead / antimony (from PET bottles) bad.

            Shop bought filter (mainly carbon) will remove some crud and chlorine – will not remove lead, fluoride etc. They are a waste of money really, and if the filter is not changed provide a good medium for bacteria to grow. If you like using them though, cool.

            Activated Aluminium will remove fluoride, arsenic etc.

            Reverse Osmosis / Distilled Water: Will remove pretty much everything, but therein lies a problem. We source many trace minerals from water which are important for diet / well being. If you do RO, you generally have to add these back in afterwards.

            If your local water has fluoride added, well worth petitioning to have this stopped. The city of Calgary, Alberta, recently stopped.

            Anon: Spring water – sort of yes.

            Check the label though – you will see fluoride listed if it is above a certain concentration. There should be a little fluoride in spring water, the concentration is dependent on where it is sourced – geology of the rocks etc.

            The word of caution with bottled spring water: If it is in plastic type 1 PET, be wary if it was bottled more than 3 months prior to your use. There were studies done in Germany which showed that concentrations of antimony (similar to lead) in bottled water reached significant levels after this time.

            The contamination leaches from the plastic.

            Water bottled in glass is best, or non BPA / PTE type plastics.

            Google is your friend.

            Be aware that fluoride will absorb through the skin, so if fluoride is in your mains water supply, showering and bathing will give you dose.

            Best solution if concerned and you have fluoridated mains water is to invest in a filter system for the property – Activated aluminium could be most cost effective.

            Apparently silicon dioxide (as a trace mineral) can help remove aluminium from the body. This is potentially useful as it is currently believed that the combination of aluminium and fluoride in the body could be a major risk factor for Alzheimers.

      The Bold (or Beaux) Gendarmes

      The words tend to vary between recordings but here is one:

      We’re public guardians, bold but wary,
      And of ourselves, we take good care,
      To risk our precious lives, we’re chary,
      When danger looms, we’re never there
      But when we meet some helpless woman,
      Or little boys that do no harm

      Chorus:

      We run them in, We run them in,
      We run them in, We run them in,
      We show them, we’re the bold gendarmes,
      We run them in, We run them in,
      We run them in, We run them in,
      We show them, we’re the bold gendarmes!

      Sometimes our duty’s extra mural,
      And butterflies we love to chase
      We like to gambol in things rural,
      Commune with nature, face to face,
      But to our beats then back returning,
      Refreshed by nature’s holy charms,

      (Chorus)

      If gentlemen will make a riot
      And punch each other’s heads at night
      We’re quite disposed to keep it quiet,
      Provided that they make it right,
      But if they do not see it
      And give us our proper terms

      (Chorus)

      A homeowner in the US has to watch his house burn to the ground because his locality has a no-pay-no-spray policy:

      And of course, the Lefties on MSNBC had a field day with this one at the time. In fairness, many localities in the US assess a firefighting fee of, say 75 dollars a year (as here), but put your fire out anyway and charge you a fine later, of well more than USD 75, which they seek from your homeowner’s insurer. Or else, they slap a lien on the property, which the mortgagee must pay so as not to lose its first claim, and then it passes the charge on to you. Of course, the homeowner’s insurer need not pay the claim on the burnt-down house, either, if they required him to pay the 75 bucks. The mortgagee could also pay the fine and sell the property out from under him, as well, if they accelerate his loan for his failure to insure properly. Like they say in this mong’s neck of the woods, “Cain’t fix ‘stupid’!”

      Housing subsidies are negative sum. More scroungers in London = More expensive housing for workers, longer commutes, and more rent-seeking. All 3 bad for the economy.

            Greenpeace messed up when they failed to understand that considered management of fish stocks and sensibly managed harvesting of the oceans was actually a real issue.

            They can be regarded as a complete failure.

            The awareness they raised with respect to environmental and ‘eco’ issues is completely flawed as they explicitly ignored the needs of man, whilst distracting from the real damage which man was inflicting on nature and ultimately himself. Fish are a prime example.

            The EU CFP is a dangerous policy which has gone wrong.

            It needs to be stopped whilst there are enough fish left to rebuild their respective populations. Moving forward, more sensible harvesting should be pursued. Looking at recent history, removing the Euro fingers from this pie is a good place to start, a moratorium is required for a few seasons.

        Icke is interesting. He is making $, never proffers solutions, explicitly directs you to draw conclusions: something not quite right is apparent. Preferring to keep his audience in a state of suspense, dangling the carrot of solution and knowledge close without actually passing it over, you can see how the fraud works. It is Orwellian as well, as he demands awakening by putting people into his trance.

        Digging deeper, he just keeps rehashing the same old Theosophical drivel that you can find on the Theosophists web site, just with a better presentation. If you have read the Illuminatus Trilogy (1975), you have most of his source.

        As a journalist, his flaws are there. If you check his sources. His piece the other day on the P0pe is a good example. Mistakes such as these call into question the value of his research. Does he know anything ? Unlikely as he spends most of his time tucked away on the Isle of Wight.

        AJ is different, as he has hooks into the military, police and the real world via his radio show. He proffers some solutions and suggests actions which can get people into a better situation. He does not keep them transfixed on essentially nothing. But still, what is behind him, and when you see where his messages stop, one can only speculate on why.

It will not do, Pughe old chum, to cite how few gun deaths occur ordinarily in Europe; people in Ulster will laugh at that one. And a small town in Scotland and an island in Norway show what happens when, as Mr Pratt says, someone bent on inflicting gun violence can do so with impunity, in the moment, when there is no-one to intervene.
