          Cameron is now indirectly funding the scum that killed our troops. Great job Cameron, what an absolute arsehole.


          • David Cameron says:

            Look, Al Qaeda are freedom fighters, who have the nothing but the religious freedoms of the poor oppressed, four million Syrian Christians at heart.

            This is why we must support them and allow them to behead Christian monks and priests at every opportunity and further the Wahhabi Saudi moderate cause.

            It would be a tragedy, if our allies, Al Qaeda, were to fail and the tens of thousands of foreign Jihadi warriors we rightly support, fail in their mission to radicalise Syria.

            I am sure you will support my efforts to help them to victory and the peace they will bring to Syria and the Syrian people.

      The downward slide has begun

      Britain is about to be flattened by a tidal wave of debt. It doesn’t matter if you vote Conservative, Liberal, Labour, UKIP – or for no party at all. The facts are the facts.

      Let’s take a look at some numbers…

      Two and a half years ago, when the Coalition government formed, we were already in a huge amount of debt. In fact, the previous government had left the country sinking under £700 billion’s worth. Source:

      The Coalition has spent the last two years desperately and very publically trying to get our finances in order. We’ve had an “austerity” budget. We’ve had tax hikes. We’ve had “the cuts”.

      But for all that, our national debt is still growing at an incredible rate.

      Despite David Cameron’s talk of “austerity”, he’s going to add an estimated £700 billion to the national debt in just five years. That’s more than Tony Blair and Gordon Brown added to the national debt in eleven years. It’s more than every British government of the past 100 years put together.

      The fact is, when you look at our finances as a whole, the Coalition isn’t cutting anything. State spending is going up… our national debt is going up… and our interest payments are going up.

      By the next general election in 2015, our national debt is estimated to stand at almost £1.4 trillion

      It’s clear: our public finances are in an enormous mess. Anyone can see that. And to some extent, some politicians will admit it. But add in our financial, personal and private debts… and an even darker picture emerges…

      Compared to the size of our economy, Britain is now one of the most heavily indebted countries in the Western world. That’s official. Our total debts stand at more than FIVE TIMES what our entire economy is worth.

      Proportionally, that’s more debt than Italy… Portugal… Spain… and almost twice as much debt as Greece. Those are four countries already in the throes of financial crisis. We’re the odd one out because we haven’t collapsed – yet. But things can’t stay that way for long.

      You see, the only countries that have more debt than us are Japan, where the economy has stagnated for 20 years and the stock market has crashed by 75%… and Ireland, where the housing market has crashed 50%, and the government has been forced to accept a bailout.

      In fact, our debts tower above almost every other nation’sThat’s absolutely incredible, isn’t it? Yet you’ve probably never seen this fact reported in The Telegraph or on Sky News.

        Point of Information 5 says:

        The change in Fed policy which is seeing end to easy money in large chunk of the international markets is going to likely cripple UK somewhat.

        This is already beginning to claim victims among third world nations, and has led to the delay of government sell off of its share of Lloyds.

        Would perhaps crash the amount expected to be raised from any other planned privatizations as well. eg. NHS / Post Office / BBC.

        Fag End says:

        Very true, we have a whole host of factors coming together to make a perfect storm over the next 10 years. I’ve only got anecdotal evidence but it also seems to me that many of our more bright and capable 19-25 year old’s are skilling themselves for life working all over Europe basically to go where the jobs are. Mean time the low wage/no wage/can’t be arsed are knocking each other up as fair rate. Add the the fact that for all the talk of ‘restructuring the economy’ back toward manufacturing it simply can’t be done on the scale needed. The markets have moved on and the UK is locked out of key sectors (just look at all the imported hardware that goes into windmills!). The elite know all this but can’t bring about change because they are locked into the system. It needed a leader unlike Dave who could see beyond the focus group and the latest social trend to be able to set out bold plans to cut debt and reinvest in the real economy. We don’t have one yet in sight, who knows the next few years might give us one, let’s hop so.

      This video vignette of yours was fine –faultless even — until the last shot when you attempt a smile.

      Never smile Dave — that limp wristed lip contortion takes away all vestige of seriousness from you , shows you have an underdeveloped almost childlike sense of humour and that you have never in your lifs succeeded in delivering a good joke — apart from the one about Nick Clegg being one .

      Stay serious PM — displays of alacrity are disciplines you patently have not yet mastered and frankly make you look a wanker .

        History says:

        The Barbary Pirates. Other than defending us from the Spanish, French and Dutch, the Royal Navy was being sent to North Africa on missions as early as the 1620s to free English slaves. The words of Rule Britannia were meant to be taken literally at the time it was written.

          British Library says:

          The slave trade refers to the transatlantic trading patterns which were established as early as the mid-17th century.


          • Blame it on Arabs says:

            “It has been estimated that, by the 1790s, 480,000 people were enslaved in the British Colonies.” – British Library


          • rick says:

            Slaves have been Africa’s main export trade since the beginning of recorded time. Still goes on amongst the different tribes.


          • Ode to Joy says:

            Strictly speaking, that particular pattern of movement and trade in slaves should be called ‘a slave trade’ . There were other well established trades and routes during the same period from West to East across the Sahara, to the Levant, the Sudan and Arabian peninsular, from the Balkans to Istanbul, from the interior of Africa to Zanzibar, and of course in entirely other areas of the world, such as within the Siamese empire. But, being ‘the’ British Library, as opposed to ‘a’ British Library, one can’t expect a complete picture to be provided by the know-it-alls.


          • wun hung lo says:

            The slave trade refers to anything in context. It has been going on at least since the end of the Bronze age.


      • 117

        Most probably one or all of the “civilisations” of East Africa, the Horn of Arabia, the Perisan Gulf and/or Southern Asia.

        So your point is what, exactly?


      • 120

        In fact, knowing a bit about “The Arabs”, being half-Lebanese as I am, I’d put money on it being if not actually invented by “The Arabs”, then perfected as a “trade” bu them, and I claim my £5.

          The Africans and Arabs still are the biggest slave traders in the world. Time and the leftist media, have given them a complete free pass over this.

    This fortress built by Nature for herself
    Against infection and the hand of war,
    This happy breed of men, this little world,
    This precious stone set in the silver sea,
    Which serves it in the office of a wall

        They have given us into the hand of new unhappy lords,
        Lords without anger or honour, who dare not carry their swords.
        They fight by shuffling papers; they have bright dead alien eyes;
        They look at our labour and laughter as a tired man looks at flies.
        And the load of their loveless pity is worse than the ancient wrongs,
        Their doors are shut in the evening; and they know no songs.

        We hear men speaking for us of new laws strong and sweet,
        Yet is there no man speaketh as we speak in the street?.
        It may be we shall rise the last as Frenchmen rose the first,
        Our wrath come after Russia’s wrath and our wrath be the worst.
        It may be we are meant to mark with our riot and our rest
        God’s scorn for all men governing. It may be beer is best.
        But we are the people of England; and we have not spoken yet.
        Smile at us, pay us, pass us.
        But do not quite forget.

      Only the monstrous anger of the guns.
      Only the stuttering rifles’ rapid rattle
      Can patter out their hasty orisons.
      No mockeries now for them; no prayers nor bells;
      Nor any voice of mourning save the choirs, –
      The shrill, demented choirs of wailing shells;
      And bugles calling for them from sad shires.

            And in part because Russ!a’s army was weakened following the purge of 90% of his experienced officer corps by Stal!n just before H!tler initiated operation Barbarossa.

            Stalin exterminated Lenin’s version of Marxism, and demonstrably set Russ!a back 30 years.

        From a pure material point of view the Russians certainly inflicted the greatest losses on Germany. They did the thing that all politicians try to avoid doing in a war simply that you have to destroy the enemy’s army in detail. Which means hard and heavy fighting with the attendant loss of life. However you count the dead the people of the old USSR certainly paid the price. WWII like WWI was a coalition war and all nations did contribute and certainly when Britain and her Empire stood alone in 1940 we were the only force still standing against Hitler. Rationally we should have made peace and made the best of it but we didn’t we fought on it cost us more loss of life and the Empire. But it did enable Europe to be freed at least in part (Stalin’s terror fell on Eastern Europe). For a small island I’d say no mean feat.

          The ‘hard proof from sources independent of the UN inspection team’ is a problem.

          What are the sources ? If not Syr!an government, then who ?

          NGO’s cannot be trusted after the Agent-15 scam they tried to pull earlier this year. They are likely referring to NGO Medecins Sans Frontiers, who quite frankly have a clear VI in this and cannot be trusted. (Note: They are being targeted now, perhaps to kill the source ?)

          Word on the street is that Congress Yes, House No may be outcome of upcoming votes, passing the buck straight back to Obama who will be forced to make a decision based on the fact that government cannot decide.

          At present, it is looking like No votes will be returned, putting Obama in a catch-22 where he will either have to back down on the red line, or subvert democracy.

          The task is getting harder with Russ!an build up.

          One thing that should be observed: With all of the extra attention etc., if the stated aim of military intervention is to prevent use of CW by Assad (not that I suggest he did in the first instance), this extra attention will be making that happen.

          Military intervention is therefore not required for that reason.

          So why are they persisting ? :-)

          • I have been driving over the Alps today as I indicated earlier and have just got in and unpacked and had something to eat. The sockpuppet at 7:46pm is apparently just a sicko and wrote at the time I was passing Trieste. The posts in my name in the first thread of this page are also sockpuppets and the first one at 5:20pm was posted whilst I was driving down the Tagliamento Valley from Tarvisio.

            In the last four weeks or so it has not been possible for me to keep up with the news and so I don’t feel like commenting in such circumstances.

            Apart from mentioning that the new way of politics on both sides of the pond seems to be putting the problematic issue to a body of electors in such a way that ensures that your wishes will not be carried out. Am not sure whether this is double, treble or some other multiple bluff.

            Hi SC: If that is you or even the ‘sock puppet’ – I hope you are having a good evening. Am just trying to think what you were writing about before the sock puppets started showing up – you must have been on the money somewhere.

            Take my remark above to Sock Puppet at face value. All hell has broken loose in the media past 2 weeks. Think full on war footing propaganda, amusingly without the war thanks to Parliament last week.

            Am still very much interested in looking out for your takes. There are some very deep philosophical issues at hand, and as I just realized on an earlier thread, a subtle constitutional one with our man Dave, thanks to Blair / Hain.

          Am very familiar with that case – thank you for the book recommendation.

          Put!n has been operating in and environment of ‘gangster’ politics for a while now out of necessity.

          O’bama started in this frame in Ch!cago.

          If both Put!n and O’bama have defaulted to this frame now, this explains some of the apparent gaps in the reasoning for their decision making. Gaps which appear if one assumes a higher frame of decision making.

          Perhaps Dave is not aware of this.

          Applying high diplomacy to a conflict situation between two maf!a bosses engaged in a turf war, by analogy, will not get you very far. In fact, your nuanced logic will be dismissed, and you will be sidelined.

          This is an awful development for international relations if this is what is going on right now. France needs to be very careful.


          • Stop Censorship says:

            I agree

            But the French are more used to gangster turf wars than you think

            For details, the best site for insider France is – quite a lot in English

            Re Cameron -he is heavily influenced by Blair who has become a gangster now

            So not so naive – but his off the cuff reactions recently have been very childish and do no good for Britain or anyone else…plus Blair is now megalomaniac and a danger to everyone including himself!


          • Point of Information 5 says:

            Yes – France knows how the game is played.

            Being aligned with the US on Syr!a, they are putting their own strategic interests above Russ!a’s, and are entering direct competition against Russ!a with the US.

            This is a very dangerous.

            France are of course putting all other NATO members in harms way, as NATO they have calculated as their shield against Russ!a.

            Agree on Bla!r. He needs to be removed as he is an existential risk to UK security.

            If Cameron persists trying to emulate Bla!r, he will only damage his and UK credibility further. Cameron is not psychopath: he will only wreck himself personally if he continues to follow the Bla!r pattern. Time to step back and reassess.

      Though knowing your pathological dishonesty when it comes to all things leftard, I doubt it.


      • 155
        Casual Observer says:

        I think you may be a little off the mark with some of your analysis, but you are fundamentally right about pathological dishonesty: That is the Marxist revisionism showing in the guy.

        i) Fascism is quite different to socialist collectivism. The only truly fascist government to have existed was Mussol!ni’s !taly: It features an authoritarian government on a blend of statism and corporatism. This blend is prominent in the political economy of the system, which really is the true defining quality of a fascist system of government.

        ii) 100% Correct: Private-Public Partnerships are a pure fascist construct. See the political economy.

        iii) Anything connected with NSDAP is National Socialist: This is slightly different.

        iv) The political economy of NSDAP was mainly militarist. It is usually corrupted to be fascist but was not. A key difference is that despite the state being primary customer for corporate production, the state did not have a key ownership stake in those companies.

        This for example is why it would be wrong to label the US military industrial complex as a fascist system.

        v) The ‘third way’ sold by progressives today is communitarianism. This is a different structure again. Different to fascism, the corruption in the political economy involves state owning a stake in corporate interests, but the corporations also take part ownership of state interests. The economic feedback is provided by the state subsidizing directly corporations with public money.

        In many ways the progressives of today have been selling a very regressive system.

        The freedom of the individual is restricted more firmly under communitarianism than either fascism or socialism.

        The socialists did repaint fascism as the bogey man post WWII as they needed to revise history to shield themselves from the excesses of Stalin and the NSDAP.

          • Casual Observer says:

            Reflecting the libel term isolationist back to interventionist in order to shift the argument is a sound move.

            The libelous label approach with with false ‘isolationist’ charge does not stand up to critical analysis though:

            i) It relies on an assumption that being a collectivist (diametric opposite) is the norm. (Socialism is good in the US ?!?)

            ii) It is an absurdity:

            So we apriori assume that collectivist is good in order to make pejorative isolationist stick. But in the process of labeling we isolate the target, hence are advocating the opposite of what we feel is good.

            Once labeled, the targets side of the debate is prejudiced, and you push the target into the isolationist position closing down the debate.

            Using this style of debate, you are really arguing for isolationism rather than collectivism.

            This is the precise same paradigm as Labour used under PC to incorrectly label anyone rac!st if they had a contrary view on certain Labour policies.

            Labour did that as they knew they could not defend those policies, as the interventionist lobby cannot defend theirs either.

            In both cases now the factual evidence is in, so their arguments are lost, and people can safely ignore the labels.

      Your Friendly Neighbourhood Pomp And Circumstance Service says:

      Sir Edward Elgar, on a tour of America, received an honorary degree at Yale University in 1905, and, as the recessional music for the occasion, which was also the commencement exercises for the University, Land Of Hope And Glory was played– and an American tradition was born, one which spread rapidly to other universities and even to schools on lower levels, of playing LoH&G as both the processional and recessional music at such events.

      Elgar himself was, of course, quite chuffed about this, since, when the music is played simply as an instrumental, without what some might consider the rather jingo pietistic-sounding lyrics, it IS an impressive piece to be played to mark an occasion of great joy coupled with hope (and perhaps glory for those participating in it), not fraught with all the imperialist baggage it might have in the UK.

      What did Gordon do to establish his reputation as a world statesman (Pass)
      What did Brown say when asked if he should hold an election to be leader of the Labour Party (I’ll pass)
      Why did the Labour Party endorse Gordon brown? (Pass)
      What did James Purcell say when asked if he would support Gordon brown? (Pass)
      What did Brown do in 2007 when he had a chance to easily win a general election (pass)
      Now Gordon is old he can not just claim all his expenses for doing no work but also a free bus .. (Pass)

      (Whaaaa whaaaa whaaaa)

      Thank you! And at the end of that round you have scored 6, which coincidentally was Brown’s personal poll rating in 2010.

    what I intended to tweet was
    “thank you for bringing certain erotic images hacked into my website to my attention.”

    It’s funny how spellcheck can misinterpret words isn’t it?

    Some very interesting comments and tubes above. Our political system cannot cure itself of its infestation of criminals with too many secret and hidden agendas. There are too many old boys clinging on to the beliefs of their whole lives – and it is sad to say that they appear not of any moral backbone to be able to recognise that their belief structures have all been tainted with duplicitous and misleading intent by those who have pulled their strings with promises of money and stardom on a worldwide ‘stage’.

    How sad?

            I am just blowing bubbles in my bath

            But thanks for the advice


          • Not Blowing Whistles says:

            Oh, I would disagree with that.

            However is it wise to draw attention to his points by misplaced ridicule if you are trying to discredit him ?

            Unless of course your intention is to amplify his message ?


          • We are so lucky to read your words says:

            Not your fault. According to Blowing Whistles’ brilliant insight, you are probably having your strings pulled by someone in the world of money-lending without even being aware of it.


          • Not Blowing Whistles says:

            @Nietsche: Was replying to BW’s troll above.

            BW does seem to partially preach an inversion of Zarathustra’s roundelay:

            ‘You are asleep—
            From a deep dream I awake you and swear:—
            The world is deep,
            Deeper than day had been aware.’

            One wonders to which higher power he alludes to though: Those of Z’ion or the Z’oroastrian super men atop the pyramidal rock ?

            We know which ones he thinks, but unless he has climbed to the top, does he know for sure who let him think that ?


          • Blowing Whistles says:

            To Wasltryw at 11:09 pm – Ever heard of “Freedom of Expression” – It is something that has served a great deal of people so well for many decades .

            Yet ‘they don’t really want others to know about it so much now and promote the ghastly drivel that the msm can only mention freedom of speech.

            There is a gulf of difference between the two – and mongrels know not the difference much less DARE refer to it.


          • Blowing Whistles says:

            If a statistic was stated to be 6 million around 1948 – but then it was propagated in 1975 as being 12 million; don’t you think someone has attempted to inflate the statistics for some or other reason?


          • We are so lucky to read your words says:

            You are not worthy to think you understand Blowing Whistles’ brilliance or to speculate as to whether he is correct or not about anything. All I can suggest is that we all abandon our petty attempts at thinking for ourselves or communicating about the mere snippets of his wisdom we have managed to half-understand and humbly wait for more of his wisdom.


          • We are so lucky to read your words says:

            If only Blowing Whistles had been around in 1948 and 1975 to set everyone straight.


          • We are so lucky to read your words says:

            It is quite possible that he was. His wisdom is so all-encompassing it is quite possible that he has transcended time itself. In which case we should be even more grateful that he finds it within his heart to comment on Guido Fawkes’ blog for our education and to give us a chance to admire him above all else.


          • Not Blowing Whistles says:

            @BW: Twa!n’s comments on statistics are relevant.

            The statistics of body counts, especially if gathered during periods of conflict, should always be treated with a pinch of salt.

            Look at what has been happening with the Aug 21 stats in Syr!a.

            If you measure the standard deviation on the figures which have been released, this is quite large. (This will give a measure of error on the underlying data)

            If you ask who was doing the precise counting, no one can tell you.

            I strongly urge you to check what !ran’s FM Z’arif has been saying on the issue of the shoah in past few days, before getting caught up too much in the argument you are putting forward.


          • Blowing Whistles says:

            We are – are you my new troll smear merchant – now trying a different tack seeing as I have blown away so many others. Do keep it up you’ll blow your own self up if you go on that way.

            btw to NBW – you say ‘unless he has climbed to the top …’

            I don’t need to climb anywhere – I have had every tier of the pyramid from the bottom up prove to me that they are the sufficent ignorant and lesser tool fools; so much so that they have damned and downed me for daring to speak out against their duping masters who scare them witless and into subordination.

            Interesting article in DM today about msm men being suborned to and under meedya laws – whereas I ain’t.


          • We are so lucky to read your words says:

            Blowing Whistles probably knows who did the counting. It might even have been him.


          • We are so lucky to read your words says:

            Being blown away by Blowing Whistles must be a marvelous experience. He probably has a lot of experience at that kind of thing. Being the only person wise enough to see things as they are and not how string-pullers want them to be seen probably helps. Those people already blown away should consider themselves very lucky indeed to be on the receiving end.


          • Blowing Whistles says:

            NBW – If I have been on holiday because of the spinelessness of the tiers in this jurisdiction to address the facts and chicanery in the judicial system here – then I will attack those who for their invertebrateness sent me on holiday because of their subordination to the deceivers here.

            Speak out – come to court with ‘clean hands’ and I will listen. Dirty hands dispence dirty law, judgments and orders.

            Judicial Tyranny – is wot we ave.


          • Blowing Whistles says:

            To We are … – you are obviously new here … very new … have fun ‘cos I have been down the road of personal attacks as many on here already know of. Enjoy attacking me – but not the subject matter. Twat.


          • Blowing Whistles says:

            So … Our politicians assert that they are our masters which is of course, a big fat lie. But who are the politicians enslaved to, and who are their masters of deception – now there’s something to ponder.

            It’s what the msm in this jurisdiction (UK) and even the US jurisdiction – won’t say and the subject matters which they dare not speak of which is their undoing innit guv?


          • We are so lucky to read your words says:

            What a fine reposte. Not clear how it gets transferred into action, but no doubt the encapsulated wisdom of so many years and a deep understanding of string pulling will enable Blowing Whistles to achieve something outstanding. I had no idea that ‘twat’ was the kind of erudite insult a wise and transcendent dispenser of distilled un-string-pulled wisdom like Blowing Whistles would select in between statistical analyses, but what do I know?


          • Not Blowing Whistles says:

            @BW: Please do not read my remarks to you or about you as disrespect.

            The K’osher N’ostra, to coin a phrase, cannot be tackled directly or head on.

            Shining the light carefully can expose, and light is the best disinfectant.

            It is interesting that many of the crimes which society here find abhorrent and which are picking up lighter and lighter sentences in the UK, are in fact not considered offences in modern day Ephra!m ?

            Just an observation.

        It was destroyed by Liebour the moment they got the Olympic games, they halved the main prize on the Saturday and the Wednesday draws , while they were still extracting money for “good causes” and if you remember took money for the NHS, from what I can see, everybody then went over to the Euro draw because they knew the government of the day can’t remove money for “good causes” apart from taxes as it’s appears to be a company draw, so the prize is good money, yes I do it when I remember and I don’t bet on anything else, the greasy dead grasping fingers of the politicians have killed the golden goose .
