Crosby Keeps in Running With No 10

Lynton Crosby had a hand in telling several ministers to jog on in last week’s reshuffle, and it seems he certainly knows how to keep in the running with the party leadership. Guido hears the fifty-something campaign guru has, in an effort to be fighting fit for the election, taken on the same personal trainer employed by the Camerons. This one could run and run…

      Sacking competent ministers and replacing them with window-dressing is an interesting election strategy, but sacking incompetent ministers and replacing them with window-dressing might have been even better.

    All hamas has to do is hand over its weapons and commit to peaceful dialogue and they would get everything they claim they want.

        I do not see what that has to do with ‘Rupe’.

        The reporter in question has been suspended, and this case perhaps raises interesting questions in relation to previous cases which M’ahmood has testified in.

        More a headache for the CPS than anything else, who themselves should be reviewing this case with a view to bringing charges against M’ahmood.

        From what I see, trial was rightly ended but this is only a pyrrhic victory for T’ulisa and the guilty-pleading rapper guy. She deserves to have her life ruined – teach her not to get caught if she dabbles in illegal stuff again and to perhaps start behaving like an adult and stop being a silly girl.

        Next time she’ll go down for sure.

        Good question: Why did M’ahmood go after her ?

          He apparently was giving evidence in open court before a judge. That would have to be under oath.

          CPS will likely need to review all cases before proceeding against him – it could be messy and they will need to get it right.

          M’ahmood has not been convicted of anything yet, or indeed charged, but if the allegation is right (highly likely given what has just happened with two other cases dependent on his evidence) then charges should be coming soon. At the least he should perhaps be arrested and bailed in order to make it harder for him to vacate the country unless the delay is in the hope that that happens in order to hush up other things that may come out in his trial.

        Your ‘certainties’, ET, may be enough to bind your own anxieties but in reality they are not certain at all. A US satellite was over the area when MH17 was shot down; why don’t they offer evidence to counter the Russians’?

        It is looking more and more likely that a Kiev unit (possibly rogue) brought down the airliner in a false flag, as their fores were hurting badly in the East. The US probably knew this almost immediately, panicked and went into full spin mode without having time to smooth out the rough edges, knowing that if unchecked, a story about Kiev killing civilians would derail their entire EU strategy.

        I suspect that China has seen a more detailed dossier, which is why they have come out so openly for Moscow. Some of the key non-aligned nations appear to be moving in the same direction. Will Obama fold, as in Syria, or go all-in? We risk a chaotic descent into madness, as in August 1914.

    How American propaganda works.

    Why hasn’t Washington joined Russian President Putin in calling for an objective, non-politicized international investigation by experts of the case of the Malaysian jetliner?

    The Russian government continues to release facts, including satellite photos showing the presence of Ukrainian Buk anti-aircraft missiles in locations from which the airliner could have been brought down by the missile system and documentation that a Ukrainian SU-25 fighter jet rapidly approached the Malaysian airliner prior to its downing. The head of the Operations Directorate of Russian military headquarters said at a Moscow press conference today (July 21) that the presence of the Ukrainian military jet is confirmed by the Rostov monitoring center.

    The Russian Defense Ministry pointed out that at the moment of destruction of MH-17 an American satellite was flying over the area. The Russian government urges Washington to make available the photos and data captured by the satellite.

    President Putin has repeatedly stressed that the investigation of MH-17 requires “a fully representative group of experts to be working at the site under the guidance of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).” Putin’s call for an independent expert examination by ICAO does not sound like a person with anything to hide.

    Turning to Washington Putin stated: “In the meantime, no one [not even the “exceptional nation”] has the right to use this tragedy to achieve their narrowly selfish political goals.”

    Putin reminded Washington: “We repeatedly called upon all conflicting sides to stop the bloodshed immediately and to sit down at the negotiating table. I can say with confidence that if military operations were not resumed [by Kiev] on June 28 in eastern Ukraine, this tragedy wouldn’t have happened.”

    What is the American response?

    Lies and insinuations.

    Yesterday (July 20) the US Secretary of State, John Kerry confirmed that pro-Russian separatists were involved in the downing of the Malaysian airliner and said that it was “pretty clear” that Russia was involved. Here are Kerry’s words: “It’s pretty clear that this is a system that was transferred from Russia into the hands of separatists. We know with confidence, with confidence, that the Ukrainians did not have such a system anywhere near the vicinity at that point and time, so it obviously points a very clear finger at the separatists.”

    Kerry’s statement is just another of the endless lies told by US secretaries of state in the 21st century. Who can forget Colin Powell’s package of lies delivered to the UN about Saddam Hussein’s “weapons of mass destruction” or Kerry’s lie repeated endlessly that Assad “used chemical weapons against his own people” or the endless lies about “Iranian nukes”?

    Remember that Kerry on a number of occasions stated that the US had proof that Assad crossed the “red line” by using chemical weapons. However, Kerry was never able to back up his statements with evidence. The US had no evidence to give the British prime minister whose effort to have Parliament approve Britain’s participation with Washington in a military attack on Syria was voted down. Parliament told the prime minister, “no evidence, no war.”

    Again here is Kerry declaring “confidence” in statements that are directly contradicted by the Russian satellite photos and endless eye witnesses on the ground.

    Why doesn’t Washington release its photos from its satellite?

    The answer is for the same reason that Washington will not release all the videos it confiscated and that it claims prove that a hijacked 9/11 airliner hit the Pentagon. The videos do not support Washington’s claim, and the US satellite photos do not support Kerry’s claim.

    The UN weapons inspectors on the ground in Iraq reported that Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction. However, the fact did not support Washington’s propaganda and was ignored. Washington started a highly destructive war based on nothing but Washington’s intentional lie.

    The International Atomic Energy Commission’s inspectors on the ground in Iran and all 16 US intelligence agencies reported that Iran had no nuclear weapons program. However, the fact was inconsistent with Washington’s agenda and was ignored by both the US government and the presstitute media.

    We are witnessing the same thing right now with the assertions in the absence of evidence that Russia is responsible for the downing of the Malaysian airliner.

    Not every member of the US government is as reckless as Kerry and John McCain. In place of direct lies, many US officials use insinuations.

    US Senator Diane Feinstein is the perfect example. Interviewed on the presstitute TV station CNN, Feinstein said: “The issue is where is Putin? I would say, ‘Putin, you have to man up. You should talk to the world. You should say, if this is a mistake, which I hope it was, say it.’”

    Putin has been talking to the world nonstop calling for an expert non-politicized investigation, and Feinstein is asking Putin why he is hiding behind silence. We know you did it, Feinstein insinuates, so just tell us whether you meant to or whether it was an accident.

    The way the entire Western news cycle was orchestrated with blame instantly being placed on Russia long in advance of real information suggests that the downing of the airliner was a Washington operation. It is, of course, possible that the well-trained presstitute media needed no orchestration from Washington in order to lay the blame on Russia. On the other hand, some of the news performances seem too scripted not to have been prepared in advance.

    We also have the advanced preparation of the youtube video that purports to show a Russian general and Ukrainian separatists discussing having mistakenly downed a civilian airliner. As I pointed out earlier, this video is twice damned. It was ready in advance and by implicating the Russian military, it overlooked that the Russian military can tell the difference between a civilian airliner and a military airplane. The existence of the video itself implies that there was a plot to down the airliner and blame Russia.

    I have seen reports that the Russian anti-aircraft missile system, as a safety device, is capable of contacting aircraft transponders in order to verify the type of aircraft. If the reports are correct and if the transponders from MH-17 are found, they might record the contact.

    I have seen reports that Ukrainian air control changed the route of MH-17 and directed it to fly over the conflict area. The transponders should also indicate whether this is correct. If so, there clearly is at least circumstantial evidence that this was an intentional act on the part of Kiev, an act which would have required Washington’s blessing.

    There are other reports that there is a divergence between the Ukrainian military and the unofficial militias formed by the right-wing Ukrainian extremists who apparently were the first to attack the separatists. It is possible that Washington used the extremists to plot the airliner’s destruction in order to blame Russia and use the accusations to pressure the EU to go along with Washington’s unilateral sanctions against Russia. We do know that Washington is desperate to break up the growing economic and political ties between Russia and Europe.

    If it was a plot to down an airliner, any safety device on the missile system could have been turned off so as to give no warning or leave any telltale sign. That could be the reason a Ukrainian fighter was sent to inspect the airliner. Possibly the real target was Putin’s airliner and incompetence in implementing the plot resulted in the destruction of a civilian airliner.

    As there are a number of possible explanations, let’s keep open minds and resist Washington’s propaganda until facts and evidence are in. In the very least Washington is guilty of using the incident to blame Russia in advance of the evidence. All Washington has shown us so far are accusations and insinuations. If that is all Washington continues to show us, we will know where the blame resides.

    In the meantime, remember the story of the boy who cried “wolf!” He lied so many times that when the wolf did come, no one believed him. Will this be Washington’s ultimate fate?

    Instead of declaring war on Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Somalia, and Syria, why did Washington hide behind lies? If Washington wants war with Iran, Russia, and China, why not simply declare war? The reason that the US Constitution requires war to begin with a declaration of war by Congress is to prevent the executive branch from orchestrating wars in order to further hidden agendas. By abdicating its constitutional responsibility, the US Congress is complicit in the executive branch’s war crimes. By approving Israel’s premeditated murder of Palestinians, the US government is complicit in Israel’s war crimes.

        He’s been working on these posts all day.

        He’ll be telling us next that it was King George’s men who threw the tea into the harbour in Boston as a false flag operation to isolate the would be separatists and wipe them out before the US War of Independence could start. George Bush the first had other ideas however and was able to call on the armies of Genghis Khan the rest is history.

        Actually what PCR doesn’t know in his bunker in Kensington Palace Gardens was that (he probably does actually) was that the attack was carried out a day late, after the Buk missile launcher developed a fault and technicians hurried across the border from Russia to repair it. While Russian aircraft were overflying Kiev and the Government held West Ukraine where the Ukranians had SAM missiles, they were skirting separatist held east Ukraine, north / south flights taking an avoiding route, where the Ukrainian government didn’t have SAM equipment.

        Inter continental east / west traffic was continuing to overfly the area as normal. It was only later in the day that Aeroflot and other carriers ventured into east Ukraine airspace – one particular Aeroflot flight, performing a remarkable 360 degree turn at 33,400 feet, after initially diverting east, continuing to turn full circle and then continuing north in a straight line to Moscow over the disputed, volatile territory. Clearly the suggestion is that it had got word that it was safe to fly – there would be no attack after all.

      Maybe that’s because the Europeans are not yet convinced by the Kiev/White House case. Neither are the Chinese. Neither are many Americans. Neither am I.

      Why are you so keen on punishing Putin before the court has even sat? If you were confident of your facts you would show them, call for an independent inquiry and wait for a verdict based as far as possible on the facts. This is what Russia appears to be doing.

        No.

        E’uropean and A’merican authorities are very carefully managing public opinion. They do not want P’utin’s provokatsiya to coerce their public to demand confrontation, or to subvert their peoples belief in their own governments.

        This is a profoundly dangerous and nasty game which is being played, which is why P’utin deserves a bit of stick. That and his being partly responsible for the murder of ~300 people who were on board MH17 last week.

        One needs to think like a C’heka to understand P’utin’s motivations and actions now. This is damage limitation R’ussian style. Messy – isn’t it ?

        It is not possible to make statements credibly about people being convinced one way or the other unless you have some polling figures to back you up. It is an irrelevant question to ask people though as it happened.

        P’utin (through his supported separatist outfits) did not do the right thing by leaving the site un-secure, or ensuring that the bodies were sorted out with priority. That would be so as they could be returned in as fit a state as possible to relatives.

        Instead of covering himself on the phone (as reported) P’utin could have picked up the phone immediately to U’kraine and offered unconditional cessation of support for separatists and resources (not people – hardware and maybe access to R’ussian medical facilities for storing bodies) for dealing with the crash.

        He could have even attempted to visit the crash site to pay his respects. He would be secure there.

        That would have communicated a very different message.

        I consider the R’ussian State to be a bigger and more murderous analogue of the L’abour government that the UK was stuck with 1997 through 2010. That is a fatuous comparison as I the R’ussian State is really incomparable to even the worst excesses in the UK.

        NB: Mass murder of innocent civilians and desecration of the dead does not appear to be advocated by the R’ussian O’rthodox C’hurch anywhere.

        Neither is trying to cover up such events if they do somehow happen.

      It would be too easy to proscribe far-right organisations, but modern politics is far craftier than that. By giving supposed fruitcake parties and supporters just enough public funds to keep them going they stay out of Northern Ireland type politics, which in previous eras would have been the natural progression of desperate people with strong ideologies.
