Labour MP Praises Murderous Venezuelan Regime
Amnesty International Condemn Killings, Torture and Arrests

Labour MP Chris Williamson today praised the Venezuelan government at a pro-regime rally in London, despite the widespread human rights abuses committed by President Maduro’s administration. Williamson expressed his support for Venezuela’s democratically elected government”, endorsed their economic record and said he was “celebrating Hugo Chavez’s legacy”.

Human rights organisation Amnesty International yesterday reported that government forces had detained 243 protesters this week, warning that “they are risk of torture or other ill-treatment”. Amnesty finds that the socialist government’s “security forces have resorted to the excessive use of force, including the use of live fire, and even torture when dealing with protesters”. 2,157 have been arrested, 37 people have been killed and more than 550 have been injured. Amnesty accuse the government of a “politically motivated attempt to silence dissent in the country”. The regime has also begun to ration food, water and electricity as its economy falls apart. 

Williamson refused to condemn the human rights abuses reported by Amnesty when approached by Guido. Makes you wonder what people would say if he were a UKIP member, rather than merely a sitting Labour MP…

      Why the fcu*ck is the Venezuelan government having to run “pro” “rallies”, at all, and why in London of all places?
      I thought the UN-Nazis were on the side of anybody socialist, anywhere and everywhere 24/7, so what’s their problem then? They had only to pick up the phone.

      Does it think Britain harbours any pro-leftist-Marxist parties at all? Do they think we have money or something like that perhaps?

      Oh…wait…ummm—there’s the Tories, the Lib-Dems, the ScotzNaz*s, Plied-Coom-fellas, now also the CorNazis…. and Labour – and I nearly forgot the BNP as I thought they were dead.

      @CO

      Thank you for your previous response. I have been out today. If I may crudely summarise the position, one should paid heed to the is/ought distinction (Hume’s Guillotine) in the practice of IR in its pure sense. So back to Hobbes. In particular one should steer one’s thoughts away from domestic considerations where the dynamic is different.

      Where does it go wrong?

      Robin Cook’s “ethical foreign policy” was not even ethical when it came to East Timor. Some of us did suspect that at the time. Compare Bill Gate’s immunisation programme (GVAP) for a real ethical programme, instigated and funded with private money and actually doing good in many countries of the world. (I try and remind myself of this when grappling with some of the undesirable aspects of Windows!)

      I cannot help thinking that the domestic political biasing to which you correctly refer is merely a “painting by numbers” approach which has pervaded so many areas of education. Maybe I was being too hard on just firing at IR teachers?

      The reduced attention to history is another interesting observation. We have the Waterloo bicentenary coming up next year but have we learned any lessons from it, even after this time? It should be remembered that a certain Austrian gent repeated Napoleon’s error when his Operation Barbarossa failed to take account of the Russian winter. The Cold War, in which I grew up, is an unknown to many now – effectively it didn’t happen. Santayana again (for those who can remember him!)

      The real Tragedy of the Commons may have been that enlightened self interest has descended into unenlightened self-serving…

        Would reserve judgement on Gates’s philanthropy.

        Some of the immunisation campaigns he has been involved with there exists credible evidence supporting claims of locals that are fronts for sterilization programs. That is leading to the bizarre attacks on volunteer medical staff in some parts.

        This goes in part to the point of IR: When dealing across borders the restrictions of civil society and domestic law does not exist.

        Whilst I would like to believe that Gates is trying to give back and do good, that he is doing that overseas implies he is directly involved with some aspects of US f’oreign policy implementation. There are questions about the real motivation and intentions. One should not be blind to the fact that Microsoft are also a major military supplier, and Gates himself has significant global commercial interests.

        Not trying to challenge your beliefs here – just expressing mine. The attacks on medics incidentally speaks directly to the real mistrust that the recipients of aid feel irrespective of if the intentions of the programs are honest or cover for something else.

        Even if immunisation programs are running straight as they say, reducing the death rate and extending longevity in poor nations without increasing investment in infrastructure, industry and other aspects of state is not going to do those nations any favours. It could be a good way of producing cheap labour, or creating the conditions for conflict in the future though.

        Cook’s approach in Timor perhaps could be viewed as the best of bad choices. In that sense it perhaps could be considered ‘ethical’ – but not the same type of ethics we are familiar with.

        The terms ‘ethical’ and ‘f’oreign policy’ if combined should be regarded with the similar caution that policies to ‘spread peace and democracy’, or ‘bomb for peace’ (even just a little bombing) should be.

        Self interest transforming to self serving: Would suggest that self interest is where it always was, however, as competition for scarce resources and influence has increased, whilst the West’s relative power has decreased, in order to serve self interest policies will be required that will sit less easily with the public.

        That could explain in part why government is preferring to restrict access to information. Its efforts at subverting reporting and discrediting details about certain acts by initiating conspiracy theories and other counter-intelligence tools perhaps speaks to this new reality.

        Hobbes – to the chagrin of the EU – is very much relevant today.

          Not heard any rumours of this about Gates. Not saying there is nothing in it, just surprised. I do hope it is not the case but will accept whatever proof is produced.

          Have had a long experience of Africa and the problem is not the people but the communist period in which Islam has flourished due to the needless poverty.

          Right now, there is an Ebola outbreak where I have dear friends. It is something which can be defeated, not by drugs, but by basic cleanliness.

          If the problems resulting from disease were reduced, the efficiency of the place would improve. But with the mineral wealth there, there is no need for the poverty either. The education system is good if limited. I have taken laptops out there and they now have ADSL on a limited scale.

          The level of awareness is surprisingly high as to what is going wrong and who is pocketing the money.

          I can say that there is no evidence I have seen of any sterilization, hidden or otherwise. The contrary seems to be the case if anything! Rather I have heard of and spoken out against genital mutilation which I found unbelievable at first.

          Agree with rest. Enlightened self-interest can only mean one thing, whoever is trying to corrupt the system. I had simply been reflecting on my own previous observations of pragmatism and where it is so easy for some to subvert that into what it was never intended to be. Perhaps I should have drawn that aspect out a little better.

          We must never forget Hobbes…

          One more thing that occurred to me. At the time of Diana’s death and for ages afterwards I was told by many West Africans, in all seriousness, that the car crash was masterminded by the Queen or by Prince Philip.

          I would go out the next time and the same people would tell me the same story, in all seriousness, forgetting that they had told me before.

          Given who she was killed with, it does not take much to put together who was spreading that one.

          Gates may be of the wrong faith (ostensibly) to avoid such treatment. Not proof but an indicator from the ground there.

    @ CO

    During the week have been able to look at the entire ICOADS/CRUTEM video corpus to date (in fact I downloaded the lot) and would make the following preliminary observations.

    Some historical events and consequences are immediately recognisable:


    * The effect of NZ exports to Britain in the 1930s, a pattern which disappears in the 1970s
    * Effect of the U-Boats in WW2
    * Suez crisis, particularly from the late phase, where the canal was shut for almost six months.
    * Development of the supertanker which would sail around Africa, largely in response to Suez together with the consequential loss that represented to Egypt. (A good example of self-correction mechanisms in international trade.)
    * The growth in traffic along preferred routes adding to a tendency to draw soundings from coastal waters at the expense of the high seas.
    * The growth and spread of fixed data points

    It is interesting to run two periods together in adjoining tabs and switch from one to another to compare the changes. It is better to start this with well separated sets and then progress to closer times.

    Agree a 16:9 format would be nice.

    At first, I found it counter-intuitive with the old world on the left and the new on the right but it is, of course, a date line split. It forces a better evaluation of the Pacific which has yielded some interesting thoughts to me, not least the strategic importance of the Panama Canal to Australia.

    We have already discussed this but, interesting though the videos are, they will probably not be the best way to identify any alternative narrative to the IPCC. You did acknowledge this and I do not mean to sound disparaging in any way on what has been a superlative effort in interpreting this massive dataset in a way apparently never attempted by anyone else.

    I have done some heavy lifting in big data myself but I would not know where to start on this scale. Heartfelt kudos.

    Having got to this point, there are a number of ways of isolating particular data to test some of the “known” findings or to produce a counter-proposition.

    That can be the subject of further discussions.

      Have had a short break from that this week but have a few bits in the pipeline.

      Am going to do 1900 through 1930 – data is processed, just need to generate the vids. Should be interesting to see the effect of WWI.

      As mentioned before, the movies were just an effort to get a feel for the overall datasets. It has helped identify that sea temperature variations are geographically biased until the 90s, and that average air temperature variations over the sea are quite different to that of land.

      They also give an insight into what happens with the datasets when certain filters are applied. That proves very helpful in identifying what sort of questions are worth asking of the data.

      The average SST have been somewhat static, as have Land / SST recorded in the tropics.

      The real analysis is still ongoing and looking very much at urban development. Shall blog results somewhere (not here) when done.

      What I am interested in is showing that the CO2 hypothesis is wrong. The steady state of sea temperatures and temperatures in the tropics one suspects does this – as do the land temperatures measured far from urban areas. If CO2 was responsible for temperatures increasing the effect would be global, which I have not seen in the data.

      Showing that urbanization – particularly in the US and Ch!na – is a major factor contributing to the recorded changes on land would help provide basis for a credible counter hypothesis. In the case of Ch!na, the expansion of coastal developments may show up in SST.

      I shall post up the method used for processing the data: it is quite straight forward – just relies on making sure it is extracted and sorted correctly. To work fast you need Unix Shell and utilities – and rudimentary geometry to figure out the transformations to get to common long / lat convention, and then to screen coords.

      Filtering out by distance with respect to fixed points is a little more tricky – but simple provided the file structures were chosen carefully: Once the stations have been identified, points with those stations ids need to be segregated and then the resulting files re-processed.

      If you are up for a mind exercise with a pencil – you may want to consider the following problem.

      Given a point on the surface of a sphere, calculate a square of given edge centred on that point. Derive an algorithm to test set of n points in O(n) time to determine if they lay within that square. All points are given in standard long / lat: 0 < | long | < 179 degs, -90 < lat < 90 degs. -ve long = W.

      If you are not familiar with geometric algorithms you can look up part of this on Google. (You will then learn how windows knows what you are clicking on) But the precise answer will require a little work. Replacing the square with a circle is interesting – what is the geometry of a small circle drawn on the surface of a sphere like if it is flattened Mercator style ?

        I can write any program you want to establish yield, IRR, APR, mortgage payments, annuities and all that lot. Easy Peasy! The exponential, once conquered, should present no problems… Unfortunately… :-)

        There came a point when I tried to convert National Grid into degs/minutes/seconds and can admit that I was beaten. I probably have the mental capability to do it (with some initial help from someone) but it got to the point where my lack of formal education really let me down.

        My self-taught programming skills only extend to QB4 and VB5. Pathetic! Lost in a timewarp. I have Symantec’s C++ plus some 20 yellow manuals (one yard of shelf space) here which someone kindly gave me some years back. I have not mastered it yet!

        The one thing I do believe in is that I can do it. But there are many other things I need to do too. Life is about priorities. I can probably keep the wolf from the door for as long as is necessary but, to feel fulfilment, one needs to go much further than that. Much, much further…

MS produced Autoroute in a number of formats and I bought the professional edition used by hauliers for some £280. As a result, I could import my modest database of sites I had visited (some 7,000 plus records) and another 10,000 I wanted to.

            I could do the same thing for Europe and again for the world (both with similar sized sets) but then they stopped supporting these as cloud computing came in. There is no way I was fielding my data for them to grab! In any event, until I went there, there was often no other means of validating the coordinates at the time. Besides, one could not always be online in the middle of a highland moor, when looking for a cup and ring mark, the size of your fist, carved in some remote spot which required a walk of over a mile to get to. At least I was a healthy nerd!

Had I been a better programmer, I could have reverse engineered it but that would have been straying too far away from the main objective.

    Austria came third in both. but the nature of the voting meant that when combined she came first.

    Poland (milk churns breasts etc): Jury = 25th place. Televoting 1st!

    So if this was just a televote we would have given it all to the Poles.

    How can we explain this? Perhaps loads of Poles in UK. Or we don’t take it seriously. Can’t see how anyone can say we voted for tolerance. We voted for butter churning and pendulous ladies.

I just find it odd that, having read this site every day and read so many hate filled comments, when I bring this up, all of a sudden no one will admit it and instead resorts to silly comments. There’s a cognitive dissonance when someone can happily post racist or homophobic comments, but when this is highlighted, they’re unable to maintain the courage of their convictions.

            Let me give an example. I despise muslims. I know, sounds surprising given what I’ve posted, but islam is not a race, it’s a man made religion and as such not immune from criticism. I will happily defend and justify my loathing for this barbaric ideology against anyone, i.e the left, who would criticise me for it. So all I ask is that those who post about “darkies, bummers and wimmin” at the very least admit they hold those views.

    1st  |  S'witzerland 
    2nd  |  A'rmenia, G'eorgia, !srael, N'orway
    3rd  |  A'zerbaijan, I'celand, R'ussia
    

    Did not see it, but how did the N’etherlands, S’weden, A’rmenia, A’zerbaijan, I’celand and R’ussia entries compare to A’ustria ?

    Does this voting reflect the quality of the music ?

    If the UK ever attempted to leave the EU, then NATO troops would be seen on our streets defending “Western Democracy”.

    Vote Lib-lab-con = EU
    Vote UKIP = EU (but different master)

    We are still in SLAVERY.

    Go Nige (as the call often rallies here) but dont forget to tell your new MEPs how to put their Reciepts in. New millionaries in the making….

    To all Parties – Go F**K yourself ya maggots.

        NATO troops are already in the country, just like we go to other NATO countries to train, if it’s any troops they will have to be EU troops, but the rest is true, if they are asked by the politicians or invade us.

          Do you seriously consider that Dutch ,Greek , Belgian ,German, Italian or Portugese teenage conscripts would last more than a few minutes trying to impose martial law on the streets of Manchester , Birmingham or Glasgow
          They would end up hanging from the nearest lamppost with their rifles firmly rammed deeply up their rectums, they simply do not have the training ,numbers,or even the mindset for such an operation, the whole idea is absolute nonsense.

    Pol Pot was a jolly good chap, I have high hopes of Kim Wrong’un but why is he so fat when everybody around him is so thin? (hairstyle is a bit weird too).

Chris Bryant talks to the Times Diary about a famous gay actor:

“I don’t think I’ve had sex with him. He says we had sex in Clapham. I’m fairly certain I’ve never had sex south of the river”



Progressive Inclusion Champion says:

Great to hear Carswell call for inclusive policies and that UKIP must stand for first and second generation immigrants as much as the English.
