      A few more manifesto pledges for the Tories to declare:

      1. Axe the telly tax in the the very first session of parliament after the election to ease the cost of living o the poor and squeezed middle.

      2. Freeze the council tax for a further 5 years (ensure no loop holes and that councils must freeze it by law) again to ease the cost of living on the poor and squeezed middle.

      3. Bring in a new crime of Public Sector manslaughter so that those responsible for Staford Hospital can be jailed for their crimes.

      We should do what some other countries do – have secular schools.

      Anyone who wants more or different can send their children to Sunday schools or madrassas; and this nonsense can stop.

      There is no way the academies and free schools can be adequately supervised from Whitehall; and it seems that some councils are too quick to be seen to be politically correct.

      We need proper LA funding with dedicated local inspectors of schools.

      This is not a religious country – we live in a secular society and our children’s education should reflect that

    Updated SBU (U’kraine S’ecurity S’ervice) video with English subtitles of intercepts / events of MH17 attack:

    Importantly this includes SIGINT captures of the Donetsk Region GRU communication relating to the shoot down.

    SBU position at present is that R’ussian ‘terrorists’ were responsible, but the SBU cannot account for how the BUK-M which was used came to be on U’krainian soil. The implication being that it was likely brought recently across from R’ussia.

      The blame lays firmly with the idiots who targeted and fired the missile, and the idiots who gave them the training and equipment.

      Nowhere else.

      The ‘separatists’ are ‘terrorists’ funded, trained and equipped by R’ussia. The GRU presence gives that away.

        The court system needs some repairs, but bear in mind that undermining the public’s faith through to de facto destroying the ability of a countries justice system to function is usually a pre-req for staging a coup d’Etat.

        Before getting to exited just consider for a moment who actually benefits from such a development ?

        Now it is those (not yourself though) who are causing this to happen who need to be brought fully to account sooner rather than later.

        One of the factors which brought C’hilean dictator P’inochet to power was the A’llende governments undermining of the court system. They essentially prevented the police from doing their work, and carrying out orders of judges resulting in the C’hilean supreme court ruling that the A’llende government had disrupted the legality of the nation.

        That ruling prompted the military to come out first in warning, and then a second time to actually take power.


        R’ussia was calling the shots as they wished communist governments across LATAM in order to undermine the US.

        Now, the recent decision to cut legal aid and certain changes effected on the police in the UK are following this pattern quite closely. Your points indicate that dysfunction is creeping into the court system itself as well.

        Be careful what you cheer for here because in a post coup or post revolutionary situation it is usually the freedom fighters who blindly helped bring about the change who are put up against the wall first.

        Folk need to really ask more critical questions of the true intentions of the coalition on this matter as It is quite serious.

      Ockham's Razor says:

      Important to emphasise here that the BUK came with crew according to these recordings. It will be unlaunchable without their specialist knowledge. When they ask if it is on a vehicle, they are speaking of a low loader. Any BUK with this capability is a tracked vehicle which carries four rockets. Within the UA weapons capability, no models of this capacity exist. Therefore the BUK that fired this had to come from RF and will be back there by now.


      • 114

        It is a sophisticated bit of kit. Not point and click stuff.

        The operators were trained in R’ussia, and themselves are R’ussian.

        The inventories are still very similar so until an agency confirms definitely there is technically a grey area. A very light grey to be honest.

        The vehicle itself is likely back in R’ussia now so will be unavailable for identification.

        The simple check will be: UA show folk all their BUK’s with the records (which they essentially have) and if none are missing it can be concluded it was not one of theirs.

        There will be fragments of the missile embedded in the plane (these work by creating flak essentially) and on the ground. Could well be some parts with serial numbers on. This is why securing the area and getting an international inspection team in to work alongside UA is perhaps a good idea.

        As each hour passes, the C’ossacks will be disposing of more incriminating evidence.

          Too many trying idiotically to find any angle to pin this as a deliberate act by Russia itself. People are implying this was not a horrific accident but neither Russia nor the ‘separatists’ had anything to gain by this.

          Was getting this sort of stuff on an earlier page today plus the cui bono defence where ‘the UA are trying to pin it on the RF whilst curiously (conveniently, maybe?) forgetting that the reverse holds equally true.

          But the BUK which comes in all shapes and sizes are of lesser grade in UA than RF. Anyone who would argue otherwise would need their bumps felt.

          As you say, it is down to evidence, how much can be established before it is spirited away. The grey you mention is really off-white IMO. The tweets, the film, the recordings – all from divers sources – the willingness of UA to be audited from the outside on this are all ignored by the likes of the above Anonymous poster.

          My understanding was that all life developed from plankton. We may have actually witnesses the reverse with some of these posts. :-)

          • U’kraine should have nothing to hide here from the international community.

            My grey / off white is just looking at the facts. To your point on differences in specification that is perhaps a detail to which the planes final altitude will be important.

            To save all of the wriggling agitprop from the bona fide GRU / SVR on this site, and the Useful Idiots, R’ussia can very easily draw a line under this.

            Confirm that the separatists R’ussian terrorists did it, with R’ussian equipment (stolen or given by a rogue element in their military, who will be quickly court martialled and shot), cut all involvement and move on. Perhaps stick around to help U’kraine get back on its feet again in a nice neighbourly way, seeing as R’ussia cares about the ethnic R’ussian’s in the country.

            Would end the conflict in E’ast U’kraine immediately.

            Now: What is R’ussia actually doing ?

            There we have casus belli. The cui bono does not really come in to this as the terrorists likely did not intend to shoot down a commercial liner, but that does not excuse them in any way shape or form.

            The irony is that with the large presence of GRU in Holland the plane likely did contain a number of spies – as per concern raised by those with their fingers on the trigger: R’ussian spies.

          You should read up on the following:

          Political Warfare / Active Measures.

          Very good Wiki articles to get you started.

          To get insight into how GRU operate, check Mitrokhin.

          Then, do some careful reading on how the Cheka operated in post revolutionary R’ussia, and pay attention to how their strategies worked.

          Next, check the more recent news archives to learn what the EEU is and what R’ussia’s interest in U’kraine is.

          Details on the weapons systems being discussed are available online also – enough to confirm what is being spoken about, from credible sources.

          Recognizing that R’ussia is trying to conduct a mainly psychological war is a good place to start. Then ask yourself why ? Partly elegance, P’utin is a fan of S’un T’zu, but mainly practical: They don’t have a strong military, nor full domestic support for the creation of the EEU.

          There is nothing pompous here. You can check up on all that is being spoken about and if you find fault or have query – raise it (important) or ask for clarification.

          With a Cheka you need to think double cross and in absolute terms. With us you need to think triple, and realize that there are no absolutes.

      Seeing as your moniker is one of the more vocal members of the more interesting narratives here, and because I do respect your views on certain matters, that is why some of the above was directed your way.

      However, the posts are more to counterpoint your moniker’s well known narrative with some reality for purpose of providing other readers with reference points where they can follow the reasoning and make a balanced judgement.

      Your’s is the least loony choice for the anti-thesis to the thesis of actual reality. That is a compliment.

      It is not about point scoring – unless of course you happen to be funded by R’ussia to do what you do, which is very likely not to be the case.

        The parts of your narrative which I draw attention to are those which have largely been affected by the active measures campaign. If you check back you will notice a distinct pattern.

        There are some other aspects – eg. C’hile – on which a little more insight is needed to understand your own reaction / experiences, and more importantly a rationale for why certain ‘insane’ developments are happening.

        Folk are not completely stupid, but the notions I have been putting forward are happening right now and only really work if the target populations are unaware of what is happening.

        If you do take anything away, or indeed reflect and re-evaluate some aspects of your narrative, it may help focus strategy for addressing some of your legitimate concerns. Winning the battle is very different to actually fighting it.

        Would keep on top of the journo’s – and perhaps view with a more finely tuned eye. A number are not what they seem to be.
