      Ministry of Truth says:

      The US do not directly supply arms to AQ.

      AQ come into possession of American arms when they loot or buy second hand kit from various countries which the US has supplied in the past.

      US has funded AQ, however indirectly: This was through illegal charitable orgs which have been broadly shut down. These are not tied to the government, a few though may have been CIA fronts.

      S Arabia / Ch!na / Russ!a do may supply ‘modern’ kit, but not directly.

      Main funding has been from S Arabia / Brune! / France and misc. ‘!slamic’ charities around the world. The Brune! issue is notorious as this was tied to the first super !njunction being used against Parliament itself.

      There is a conspiracy, but it is not what people have been led to believe it is. The Grauniad cannot be trusted on its coverage of any issue – it is a hostile source.

      AQ itself is more myth than reality: A label created in order to help portray disparate !slamic radical groups opposed to liberal ideologies, but otherwise mutually exclusive entities.

      Orienting Foreign Policy against this mythical organization is good propaganda for the Western masses, but has been responsible for many lost opportunities for diplomacy where simple understanding of a specific groups concern could have enabled a calm negotiated solution without loss of life.

      Spot here an explicit left collectivist tactic which has been used many times in order to perpetrate crimes against large numbers of people.

          Austerity, removal of free milk in schools, intransigent external problems which screwed up the countries balance of payments resulting in inflation and high unemployment towards the end of Wilson’s second term likely major factors.

          Wilson’s rhetoric of ‘strivers and scroungers’ – back then more focused on ‘scroungers and welfare cheats’ combined with general benefit cuts seemed to disenfranchise a lot of the Labour support, leading to numerous seats lost in by-elections prior to the General election.

          Heath sold mainly on the idea of free market reforms in the ‘Selsdon Man’ document, which Wilson derided in a moment of political mis-calculation.

          In fact the picture pre 1970 looks very much like the picture now, and would be identical if Broon had somehow won the 2010 GE.

    Millipede,whenever I watch this apology of a so called politician it makes me cringe at his inane statements.
    Him and Balls are two cheeks of the same a-r-e under the contol of the union mafia.
    There are quite a few issues right now that we are not hearing about,one of these issues close to my heart is the issue of kiddy fiddling what has gone on in this land and just who was involved,we owe it to children to expose this as to what went on and not to try and cover this up.

    Thankyou for comment earlier on this post , you may well be correct as you say wouldnt like to be with some of them if you were manning an outpost , where a bit of grit is required , rather than a clean bib . Speech was already re scheduled from 50th anniversary of coal and steel tie up (which formed basis of EU) , and its Obama inaguration , so have to see when it is re scheduled as Mr Farage pointed out new migration influx is urgent , although puzzles me how come Bulgaria and Albania havent got a better economy by now ave wage is 250eu a month , why should we pay for there poor governance and corruption ?

    Pak!stan is off most peoples minds at the moment. Interesting, as there is much brewing down there politically:

    http://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/137764/aqil-shah/derailing-democracy-in-islamabad

    Snap elections are being called for this March since a Canadia-Pak!stani al Qadri (a cleric arguably closer to military / Taliban) returned and started stirring things up properly.

    Anyone familiar with the ins and outs of the TAPI project may get what is going on. Forgiveness of crimes committed against the Baluch nationalists by the Zedari government go directly to reassuring the military and those who have raised stake money for the pipeline.

    One would prefer Imran Khan over Qadri from the UK point of view. The politic of Pak!stan is of course grounded around the military. The US has left a supply vacuum which Canada has no problem in filling, perhaps it would be better for the UK to position itself for this role ?

        Given that they are the fastest growing nuke power it would be better for UK to be involved than anyone other than US.

        US does not have the motivation, as evidenced by their ceasing supply.

        UK could do with the exports.

        The headlines do not really matter, that is lefty brainwashing. After !raq you cannot really get much worst.

        All that is important is trade and influence. Would be a coup if BP could get rights to build a refinery where TAPI is likely to come out on the coast of Balochistan.

        (To your point though, keeping out of the genocide which is going on in Balochistan to clear the way may not be a bad move.)

        Coaxing Pak!stan back to being part of !ndia would be a smart move. This may happen one way or another within the next 10 years, it would be preferable for it to happen via friendly absorption of the P military.

        Here is the extra bad news though from Algeria – more hostages killed after the initial killing by the government forces:

    Cameron releases PART of a phone call to St Omababa in Yank land where he orders us to remain in the EU political union, the other parts of the call where he asks just who David is and where exactly is little of England town anyway and where Cameron begs St Ombababa to state that the UK should remain a subject region of the EU so he can then peddle that to the British people as further evidence that the UK should remain a prisoner of the EU. And WTF has it got to do with St Ombamamamba whether we stay or leave anyway?

    A veritable freak show of pro euwhores lined up to extol the virtues of political union and how the UK would collapse in ruins if we were once again a free sovereign independent democracy. And the euwhores are hogging the airwaves and sceptics are being deliberately excluded lest the truth be known. The very same tactics that the man made global warming fraud used against sceptics dusted off and used again.
