      BBC Radio 4 and the N word.

      It was an hour long program that finally answered a question that I had long puzzled about.

      Why did the establishment react so violently to Enoch Powell, when he was only speaking the truth ?

      The answer is, is that the educated elite believed that he had let them down. He was one of their own and had no business telling the uneducated masses the truth about the dangers of mass immigration being stored up. They the elite could deal with it in an educated way while the plebs would not.

      And of Course because Powell was an intelligent and educated person the elite feared (rightly) that his words would hold more sway.

            Why do we assume that young Muslims are so much more likely to become radicalised after going to fight what they see as inhumanity and injustice that were young socialists in the 1930s?

            Or is it that they are radicalised (with dreams of bloody revolution) before they go? – perhaps because MI5 is not as good at inflitrating hardline groups as it was with the Communists before WW2.

        The reason why successive governments encouraged third world fast breeders into the country was to obviously boost the population. Liberal democracy has the effect of reducing TFRs hence causing shrinkage of populations (TFRs in countries such as Italy and Japan are well below the minimum replacement level of 2.1). This is not good for tax takes or big business. This coupled with an aging population and rising pension and healthcare costs places a much larger burden on the shrinking work-force.

        Another factor for targeting immigrants from third world countries was because of their lower than mean UK average IQ. It is an idisputable point that populations with a lower IQ correlates highly with higher TFRs/birth rates. It is a function of the less intelligent being able to delay personal gratification.

        Those with low cognitive ability are also more prone to open bank accounts i.e. take on loans (except M’uslims?) and consume more with less discrimination. Discrimination is a measure of intelligence.

        The peddlers of equalitarianism are libertarian anarchists who worship the god that mammon at the detriment to social well being.

          Wasn’t it a bit simpler than this? Newly-nationalised British Rail was unable to recruit station staff (used to be known as porters) and other labouring jobs. The Empire Windrush was the answer.

          At the time, the idea of increasing pay to incentivise employees was not known, or fell on deaf ears.

          It all rolled on from there.

            Even so it must be acknowledged, if one is to be even remotely honest, that it was the Tories not Labour, who did most to increase immigrant numbers for much of the second half of the 20th Century.

            And the reason for that was to keep low skilled wages down, so the less intelligent plebs knew their right place in society.

      Replied to you yesterday – Rousseau.

      NB: On O’bama not trying to defend him / make partisan points etc. But it is worth reflecting on where expectations and assumptions about certain things have been set or originated, and if they are not accurate – why.

      Aspects of responsibility surrounding !raq / Syr!a / !ran speak directly to that point.

      Many of the criticisms raised outside the US are really partisan in nature. Irrational in many respects, but as devices for undermining authority and humiliating quite effective. A key objective of R’uss!a at present is humiliation of the West.

      UK is also subject to EU propaganda / pressure as well.

      Note the three key propaganda messages which pan-Europa use to advance their agenda for federalization:

      i) A non United States of Europe will not be economically successful, and will descend into total war.

      ii) Russ!a is an existential hostile military threat which only a United Europe can counter.

      iii) Pan-America seeks to enslave weak European’s as means of production for its own industries.

      A broad overview of what has been going on there:

      Def. check the links on the uTube page – the European Movement is worth looking at.

      This blog post – particularly the links – worth a read also:

      h**p://20committee.com/2014/05/02/germany-wakes-up-from-its-snowden-binge/

      The key point is the involvement of R’uss!a – particularly in W’ikileaks / S’nowden – and in forming certain narratives: SVR seems to have sat in between NSA-GCHQ / BND for example attempting to divide – But BND etc. are outside the core loop, but very much inside the pan-Europa one.

      Europe has not quite managed to justify setting up its own security agency to compete with NSA / GCHQ, but is chewing through the more public intel tools such as G’oogle and F’acebook. That appears to be more for revisionist purpose than to act in the interests of Europeans.

      It is unclear if TTIP deal has been improved. IMHO, the pan-Europa lobby wants a bum-deal there in order to manufacture credibility for propaganda point 3 – above which advances their cause.

      To make credible point 2, the push into R’uss!a’s geopolitical back yard – especially U’kraine – must have been done for hostile reasons as R’uss!a has claimed. However, that R’uss!a were ready and waiting is kind of glossed over and should not be ignored. R’uss!a has a stronger geopolitical reason for wanting U’kraine in the R-Fed / EEU than EU does for U’kraine being in its Union. Hence what is happening right now.

      Final intrigue: If you read about the outing of UK’s Oman SEEB surveillance base – recall also this interesting article involving back-room deals involving !ran last year:

      http://tinyurl.com/lguozjz

      !ran is of key strategic interest for R’ussia, US and EU at present. When the card is played the balloon will go up.

          Worth taking time – and to def. read through the links linked to in those posted above.

          The active measures stuff is convoluted and despite being attributed to R’uss!a predominantly (they are undeniable masters of the craft though…) the techniques are employed by all sides.

          Keeping an eye on rational final objectives and understanding that the strategy typically uses at least three double-cross steps to get the desired outcome helps. The objectives themselves are obvious but obfuscated.

          To adjust the frame – seeing precisely how this infamous question of S’nowden handed a propaganda victory lock stock and barrel to P’utin is instructive:

          He apparently did not ask that question with K’remlin prompting, and it was painted as S’nowden’s shark jump.

          Could be a mistake, but given that in the game he is playing ‘mistakes’ are usually calculated strategy, there are many other credible reasons. His R’ussian visa is due up soon – will be interesting to see if they renew.

      You may want to compare what I wrote above on Europe ( – sounds a bit Tinfoil eh ? – :-) ) – with the analysis in this article:

      http://www.foreignpolicyi.org/content/angst-over-spying

      The article discusses in part the active measures strategy which P’utin has and still is deploying against G’ermany / EU.

      Suspect his focus now has shifted more to F’rance as splitting the original F’ranco-G’erman Union set up under the ECSC would satisfy his geopolitical needs of neutralizing EU competition to his EEU. He has been broadly successful in G’ermany if only in confounding the political lead of M’erkel which will impede G’ermany’s pursuit of national objectives a little.

      Note that an already receptive audience, such as one which has a preference for pushing propaganda as indicated above, makes the active measures more effective and easier to deploy: His enemy will do a lot of the leg work for him, and be more receptive. Sun Tzu redux.

      This will further explain Cameron’s reckless approach in objecting to Juncker.

      However, those in Europe should have figured this out now, and their priority is preservation and strengthening of the Union. Recall my point the other day about a possible mid-term switch to Schulz.

      Unlike Nixon, Cameron’s ‘crazy man’ approach has damaged his own credibility which is testament to the reality that not all can pull off that approach.

        In 1945 he was in UK Rimini camp: That was 69 years ago.

        He would have been at age 19 when in Rimini, and younger when in P’oland. So he was definitely a conscripted teenager when in service.

        His story may be confirmed by other records yet to be uncovered.

        If he has inclination to provide an affidavit accounting his war time experiences that would be of value to the historical record. There are not many first hand witnesses of that conflict left now – all eyewitness / first hand accounts are of value.

        When the Nazis attacked the USSR, they were greeted as liberators in some areas of Central Europe, which might suggest that all was not well with the great Soviet system. It was hated so much that even the Nazis could rely on support from oppressed peoples in 1941.

    70 per cent of this funding came in the form of grants from the UK Government’s Department for Business, Innovation and Skills to run our business, including supporting local citizens advice bureaux, helping people know their rights and campaigning to change things for the better.

    28 per cent of our income came from funders like the Scottish Government, the Big Lottery and the Money Advice Service to deliver projects on specific issues such as tackling the harmful effects of welfare reform, giving money advice and helping veterans and people serving in the armed forces.

    Two per cent of our income came from subscriptions from member Citizens Advice Bureaux, and small amounts of revenue from external sales of e-learning solutions”.

          Maybe.

          Word is the Braz!lian guy may have been involved in a domestic terrorism plot. Doesn’t really make sense to have Braz!lian electrician’s in L’ondon on reflection.

          That was pre-Miranda / Greenwald. Braz!l is a key part of the Snowden stuff and is hostile to UK interests.

    No doubt about it, the labourites have twigged that the ways of the extreme left is not a ticket to office, that just leaves the electorate with a left of centre political outlook or to vote ukip. There is no way of escaping socialist policies without leaving the EU, a conservative government cannot govern as conservatives.

        Then stop wondering why. There is always a first time and believe me our patience is now hanging by the proverbial gossamer thread. It will not take very much more to make it all kick off – and as there is no longer an army to come to the assistance of the police, you may rest assured that general countrywide mayhem will ensue.

        The Irish were only pretending anyway, which is why they usually gave a long enough warning on the mainland to clear the area. What they did in Ireland is their own business and was for the local community to deal with.

        The muzzies have already started with three or four trial runs. Their practice runs are now over and they have shown themselves to be not only wrong in their heads, but also deadly serious. They will be dealt with accordingly. It will not be pretty.

        Get your essential supplies in now while there is still time – and don’t say you have not been warned.

      I see all the Tory MEPs have swanned off on an all expenses paid jolly to Croatia, paid for by British taxpayers.

      “Tory MEPs were accused of hypocrisy last night after spending tens of thousands of pounds of taxpayers’ money on a week-long junket to the popular holiday destination of Croatia.
      It comes after they campaigned to cut wasteful spending by the EU in last month’s European elections.
      Fourteen Tory MEPs – some accompanied by spouses – spent an estimated £30,000 on flights, rooms at a five-star hotel and sumptuous local cuisine.
      The group even included two politicians who lost their seats in last month’s European elections.”

    Tony Blair says:

    Back in 2006, after the second US invasion of Iraq culminated if not with the discovery of the WMDs (which were the pretext for the invasion in the first place), but the unearthing (literally) and kangaroo court trial of Saddam Hussein, the US was quick to announce “mission accomplished.” Recent events have made a mockery of that claim, however what is truly the straw that broke the back of poetic justice, to mix metaphors, are reports from local media that as part of its blitz-campaign to take over northern Iraq, ISIS found and the promptly executed Rauf Rashid Abd al-Rahman, the judge who sentenced Saddam to death: a death which to many was the crowning moment of the second US invasion of Iraq, and the confirmation of successful US foreign policy.

    It goes without saying that if true, the murder of the man who indirectly did the US bidding in slamming the book shut on the Saddam regime (and with it US claims of Iraqi “liberation”) and was responsible for Saddam’s death, means the last “Mission Accomplished” posted can now be safely taken down.
