In an outrageous and all too predictable decision, the DPP refuses to charge Police with death of Ian TomlinsonPosted by: Jonathan Adams in Activism Events, Announcements, Banking and the Money Scam, Big Brother, European Union & the New World Order, Illuminati Criminals, Inhumanity, Immorality & Crime, Political Absurdity, Political Manipulation, Survival, War And Terror
In an appalling yet sadly not unexpected decision, Keir Starmer the Director for Public Prosecutions, announced yesterday that no one would face charges over the death of Ian Tomlinson.
Tomlinson, a newspaper vendor, was on his way home on 1st April last year, when he fell foul of what can only be called a gang of police, ostensibly there to ’serve and protect’ the public during the G20 protests, and all too eager to mete out agression to any who crossed their path.
Anonymous for a very long time, PC Simon Harwood was caught on video striking Tomlinson and causing him to fall to the ground. Mr Tomlinson died later.
Harwood, in keeping it seems, with many police that day, had elected not to wear identifying insignia. This in itself made revealing him a very difficult task, and one cant help but wonder whether this wasn’t a large part of the motive for so doing.
He and his cohorts apparently steadfastly said nothing despite whatever limp attempts were going on within the police service to discover the culprit, and even after the video footage had come to light Harwood waited a further three days before coming forward to superiors.
The issue here is not merely one of the unnecessary death of a simple working man, although god knows that’s bad enough. It cuts to the core of our drift into a fascist police state, where despite video evidence and multiple witnesses, this officer it seems will not now even face a trial.
What message does this send to the rest of us? That we can forget about any kind of justice wherever misdeeds by the police are concerned. And perhaps more worryingly, what kind of message does it send to the police? Who will now surely look this as even greater Carte Blanche to dispense their own justice as the whim takes them, without a care that they will ever have to answer for their actions.
Clarity of the issue of the insignia and indeed the standing orders of the officer/s commanding that day are paramount. Who ordered that officers should attend without shoulder flash ID? Who ordered the Kettling? Who was in command?
The only chance we have of getting any of these vitally poignant questions answered is in court, under oath and cross-examination.
Accordingly then we MUST press hard for a volte face from the egregious Mr Starmer and DEMAND that PC Harwood stands trial for Mr Tomlinson’s death. Because otherwise, along with Tomlinson’s demise may well be the death of justice in this country and the birth of the Police State proper.
Justice for Ian Tomlinson: Petition
To: The Director of Public Prosecutions
On the 1st April 2009 London played host to the G20 summit of the world’s most powerful nations. Regardless of whether or not you support the notion of Globalism, the right to peaceful protest should be entrenched in a lawful, peaceful and fair society, and until recently we had thought this was so in our British Isles.
The demonstrations against the G20 brought together people from all walks of life who simply wanted to show their opposition to the trend towards profit at any costs, riches for the few at the expense of the many. During most of the day those protests were good natured and friendly.
Ian Tomlinson was not part of the demonstration in any way, and was simply making his way home through the area. He was assaulted by a police officer who, in the following days refused to come forward and admit his part, until video evidence emerged giving the lie to his silent denial of involvement. Despite this it was a further three days before the officer finally made himself known to superiors.
Following his death there have been no less than three separate post mortems. The First, carried out by Home Office Pathologist Dr Freddie Patel, can be said to be unreliable even if only because of concerns that Mr Patel had blemished his own reputation: Following Mr Tomlinson’s death Mr Patel was removed from the Home Office register of accredited forensic pathologists pending an inquiry, amid concern into whether he has breached regulations.
The second post mortem, carried out soon after the first at the behest of the Independent Police Complaints Commission, concluded that Mr Tomlinson died of internal bleeding, a verdict in keeping with the claim that his death was as a direct consequence of the assault on him.
Today, 22nd July 2010, Keir Starmer QC, the Director of Public Prosecutions has announced that no police officer will face any charges in connection with the Death of Ian Tomlinson, as he feels there is, �…no realistic prospect of a conviction.�
Well Mr Starmer that is unacceptable.
Please sign the petition here Justice For Ian Tomlinson Petition and help spread the word far and wide.

A wonderful lady called Cheryl Stannard was charged with child abduction last night by the disgraceful and pathetic Portsmouth police in Hampshire, England.
It was the latest stage in a gross persecution of this woman by the British establishment. I can’t even talk about the other stages because they involve the secret family court system which uses secrecy to hide the truly grotesque activities of the Social Services (SS) Mafia to steal the children of loving parents.
Cheryl has been bailed to appear in court next week as the scaled creatures of the British Satanic hierachy seek to crush her even more.
We are going to need your help with this en masse - it is a line in the sand that we must not allow to be breached. More information in the next few days when the dust has settled and we get confirmation of her court appearance.
Thank-you to everyone who called and emailed Portsmouth police last night about Cheryl. We need to let these sad people know constantly that they are not abusing the innocent quietly and off the radar anymore once we know about it.
Please note: Cheryl is really struggling financially after spending most of her life savings on legal fees and if she was not living with supporters of her cause at the moment she would be in the street. That is where the Satanic establishment wants her to be.
We need to help her get through this. She may get legal aid, we’ll see, but there are still many costs of transport and accommodation beyond that as she deals with now two legal cases designed to destroy her. Cheryl wins and we expose the system that is crucifying many thousands of parents and children every year in the UK alone.
So … Cheryl wins - let’s go.

Today another 19 people lie dead, murdered by an outrageous military massacre on neutral vessels of an humanitarian flotilla in international waters; yet more unarmed innocent victims of yet more Israeli aggression.
These brave people had joined others from no less than 50 countries to try to bring aid to the beleaguered people of Palestine in Gaza, under siege by Israel since 2006.
The subservient whore media continue to do their best to appease their zionist masters by trying to justify the crimes, and like as not, our governments will do little but bleat about Israel’s right to defend itself, themselves doubtless held hostage to unseen zionist pressure.
And so it falls to us to take a moral stand where they will not.
But just as important is the cultural boycott.
This is too big an issue now to worry about offending the sensibilities of those who either don’t know or don’t care what the situation is. You may very well be pleasantly surprised by the response you get.
It is reported this week that Israel has sent submarines to the waters off Iran.
Write to your MP/MEP/Congressman/elected representative.
Write to the UN demanding action
And don’t let the media off the hook either. Even if there is little chance of them miraculously making a return to proper journalism, you may reach one or two humans who may yet be saved, especially regionally.
ITN have no “Duty Officer”, no-one will take a call & will not give out an email address for complaints. Even so, record your feelings about their biased reporting of the Israeli thugs killing unarmed civilians here 020 7833 3000.
Spontaneous protests have sprung up outside BBC offices all over the UK: http://pulsemedia.org/
You can add to the complaints by phoning the BBC and demanding more impartial reporting: 0370-010-0222 (then choose ‘Option 1′ and then ‘Option 3′)
And tell the Israelis exactly what you think of them:
Speak your truth. Walk your talk.

What is the point of knowing what is going on if we then do nothing about it!
‘Paedophilia within the British establishment is rife. Up and down the country, innocent children are being sexually abused by people holding positions of trust in ways that are beyond the comprehension of ordinary decent people. For those of us who are starting to understand ‘the Bigger Picture’, we know that some children are even caught up in ghastly Satanic rituals, in many cases actually losing their lives as they are sacrificed in an orgy of blood lust by key members of the criminal global elite. This is an appalling situation that will unite people of all so-called classes, religious beliefs and political persuasions.
With less than two weeks to go before the UK goes to the polls, a big push is being made by the Hollie Demands Justice campaign. This push needs your active participation! Very simply, we are going to make sure that a sizeable proportion of the MPs elected to the new House of Commons will have signed a written pledge - a Politicians’ Paedophile Pledge. This will bind them to not only pro-actively seek out the truth about what actually happened to Hollie Greig and her family and so bring about a just and satisfactory conclusion to this appalling case, but to investigate all the other dreadful cases where children and families appear to be being abused by those holding positions of trust and authority.’

Also, people can get out there with video cameras and question the candidates about the Hollie Greig case as they are campaigning in the streets. Download them onto YouTube and we can post the best ones on this site and others.

Reporter Robert Green was arrested in Aberdeen for the crime of seeking justice and an investigation into the case of Down’s Syndrome girl, Hollie Greig, who says she was serially-raped over a decade by an establishment paedophile ring operating in Scotland.
Robert is now out on bail and with a gagging order against him in an effort to stop him naming the people that Hollie says were involved.
Come and here Robert speak out against the injustices heaped out upon Hollie and her mum Anne at the hands of the Scottish establishment and the complicity of the mainstream media and especially the BBC in conspiring to cover up these atrocious crimes.
15 02 2010
Robert Green, the man who was brave enough to speak out about the horrific paedophile rapes of Hollie Greig, the most probable murder of her uncle Robert Greig to “shut him up”, and the sickening wall of silence by the Scottish establishment, has been arrested. We believe the charge is Breach of the Peace.
We understand Robert is in court today Monday 15 Feb 2010 – not an Aberdeen Court as might be expected, but Stonehaven Court which is some 50 miles south of Aberdeen. Staff in Aberdeen Court admitted the handling of Robert Green is most unusual. A judicial scam?
The whole thing stinks of a cover-up using the ‘law’ to threaten and imprison a man fighting for the truth about the terrible abuse of Hollie Greig. We also understand that law firm Levy & McRae (who have and are still threatening the UKColumn) are the Legal Advisers to every mainstream newspaper in Scotland with the one exception of “The Scotsman”. It is also of interest to the public that Mr Peter Watson, head of litigation Levy & McRae boasts an interesting CV which includes Dunblane.
Picking up on the Hollie Greig abuse scandal, the highly regarded Scottish Law Reporter states the following
Levy & McRae were abusive and threatening in their calls to the UKColumn and they have sent a number of communications alleging that they act on behalf of the Scottish Lord Advocate Elish Angiolini. Levy & McRae refuse to state whether they act for Mrs Agiolini in her official position and capacity, or her capacity as a private individual. Normally reliable sources close to the Scottish Government allege that Angiolini has been using Scottish taxpayers money to pay Levy & McRae – including legal threats to Google over their exposure of the Hollie Greig paedophile abuse. Levy & McRae’s actions are further compounded by their recent reference to Sheriff Bucchanan. who was named by Robert Green in his public statement. It is not clear if Levy & McRae are also acting for Bucchanan.
The UKColumn considers that it is in the overwhelming interest to publish the letters we have received from Levy & McRae, together with our replies. The general public must be aware of not only the details of the Hollie Greig paedophile case, but also the legal wheeling and dealing being used to silence press and media. With what objective? To prevent the truth of paedophile abuse of children being exposed? What have these people got to hide?
Since Ms Angiolini is in charge of criminal prosecutions in Scotland, it appears that she can now prosecute those who dare to question her position and role in handling paedophile cases. Such a situation is not just unhealthy it is close to a soviet style dictatorship, which threatens the safety and welfare of every man, woman and child in Scotland.
Deeper research reveals other strange facts in the Hollie Greig abuse scandal. Colin McKerracher, the Chief Constable of Grampian Police – the force which failed to investigate Hollie Greig’s abuse, but can arrest Robert Greig for speaking out – is Chairman of the North East of Scotland Child Protection Committee NESCPC. He is the main signatory of NESCPC’s 2008 – 2009 business plan
The mission of NESCPC is:
Child protection is a big thing for Mr McKerracher it seems unless the child concerned is Hollie Greig. Or is there another interest by Grampian Police?
NESCPC budgeted for an expenditure of £276,146 in their business plan. The very mention of children, money and business plans makes UKColumn staff uneasy.
Interestingly enough, against the background of the Hollie Greig paedophile abuse case, Peter Hitchens, Mail on Sunday 14 Feb 2010, reported on homosexual pornography and politics in his article ”Loathe Gordon? Wait till this lot get into power.” (Scroll two thirds down the page.)
Well revealed Mr. Hitchens, and just to keep the pot boiling, the UKColumn wrote an article in October 2007, which we will reprint on the website soon, exposing links between the website of Francis Maude MP, then Tory Chairman, and homosexual porn sites.
Mindful that perverts appear in pin striped suits, and returning to the case of Hollie Greig, we can ask one simple question. How is it that Hollie’s paedophile abuse case was never fully investigated by Grampian Police and never pressed by Angiolini’s office, yet the same authorities can arrest Robert Green for daring to speak out? Is the Scottish elite frightened of something? You bet.
But the truth is emerging fast on a can of worms that may yet claim scalps in very high places and in very big law firms.
As the Hollie Greig paedophile abuse case grows we are seeing the true state of our political and judicial elite – in Scotland and in England. Please keep doing all you can to spread the word. Publicity and understanding by the wider general public is key to exposing these sick individuals.
Keep reading the UKColumn

In the October 2009 print edition of the UK Column, we reported in our article “BBC Hides Truth of Girl’s Sexual Abuse Ordeal” the shocking ordeal of Downs Syndrome girl, Hollie Greig, who was horribly abused by an Aberdeen paedophile ring, over a period of ten years. After investigating and planning a documentary, the BBC abruptly dropped the case, despite admitting that Hollie was a reliable and accurate witness. It is important to stress that both the police and qualified medical experts have described Hollie as a competent and entirely honest witness.
From the age of just six, Hollie was repeatedly sexually abused by her father, Denis Charles Mackie. Later, Mackie began sharing his daughter with a gang of paedophile “swingers” that has been operating in Aberdeen for many years. The identities of a further seven child victims are already known. There is no question that the gang are well-connected, efficiently organised and totally ruthless. Our frightening story is that they are protected by individuals of “high standing” within the Scottish establishment.
In 2000, after 14 years of terrified silence, Hollie eventually told her mother, Anne, about the abuses. Formal statements were made to Grampian Police, providing all the horrifying details and the names of the abusers. They included a senior Scottish Sheriff, a policeman, social workers, a nurse, a solicitor, an accountant, a fire officer, married couples and others. Some of the rapes were carried out at the homes of these individuals, including that of the Sheriff’s sister. Other children were sometimes involved, including children of the paedophiles themselves.
The latest chapters in this astonishing and horrifying story about Hollie, and the seven other abused children, have taken place over the past few weeks. The key issues are a continued refusal by Grampian police to fully investigate the overwhelming evidence for the paedophile rapes, and a wall of silence by the Scottish establishment.
Whilst there has been some general Scottish media coverage, notably in The Firm and the Aberdeen Press and Journal, the media has been largely silent on what must be one of Scotlands worst top level paedophile scandles. A key figure in the press silence is the Lord Advocate, in her former role as Procurator Fiscal in Aberdeen, when in 2000 she is alleged to have effectively buried the case. Was this to prevent her associate and most influential member of the paedophile ring, Sheriff X, from being investigated, along with the other named members of the fifteen-strong rape gang?
Elish Angiolini, the Scottish Lord Advocate, is in charge of all criminal prosecutions. She is alleged to have reacted immediately to public calls for a full police investigation, by pressurising against publication. Subsequently, and under considerable duress, The Firm published an apology. Shortly afterwards the Press and Journal ran a story accurately describing the case, mentioning a sheriff and police officer without identifying them. Angiolini was not discussed in the article.
Mrs Angiolini`s role in the case recently aroused further suspicion, when it was claimed that she had used a private law firm, Levy and McRae, to issue warnings against all major Scottish editors, threatening them with legal action if any mention was made of her involvement in the case. Suspicious and angry, many individuals directly working to obtain justice for Hollie, as well as a growing number of the general public, now consider that key establishment figures, many with direct responsibility for criminal investigations and justice, have made a concerted and continuous effort to conceal the facts from the people of Scotland. Despite the pressure, investigators and campaigners for Hollie continue to stress that they hold documentary proof of the Lord Advocate’s actions, as well as proof that she has repeatedly failed to tell the whole truth about her connections with the Hollie abuse case for whatever reason.
The senior partner in the Law Firm, Peter Watson, who is also head of litigation, is understood to have refused to comment as to whether the firm’s fees have been billed to Mrs Angiolini personally, or if they are being paid by the Scottish taxpayer.
Mrs Angiolini’s office decided in December 2009 that they would not pursue the case due to “insufficient evidence.” Corroborating evidence by private investigators and researchers indicates that other than Hollie, not one of the twenty-four named abusers and victims has even been questioned by Grampian Police.
This follows the pattern of 2000, when the crimes and perpetrators were first reported. At that time, the police later admitted that only one of the gang, Hollie`s father, had even been interviewed.
The UK Column is aware that investigators have just received from the Crown Office, after years of rebuttals, the Post Mortem report of Robert David Greig, brother of Hollie`s mother Anne. Robert died mysteriously in an alleged car fire in 1997. Despite extreme inconsistencies in witness statements and circumstances, no inquest took place and the cause of death was officially due to smoke inhalation.
The Post Mortem stated that Robert has suffered considerable damage to his skull, two broken ribs and a broken sternum. Informal professional medical opinion so far is of the view that Robert had been severely beaten, had alcohol forced down his throat and then thrown into the burning vehicle.
Although this was not known at the time, Hollie, in 2001, told her mother that just prior to his unexplained death, Robert had caught Hollie`s father sexually abusing her.
The campaign for justice for Hollie, and other vulnerable victims of paedophiles in England and South Wales, not only goes on, but has intensified as outraged members of the public have flooded Aberdeen with leaflets naming all current members of the gang, including the head of a special school. All Aberdeen Councillors and MPs have also been alerted, but with little effect. There appears to be a conspiracy of establishment silence where the abuse of Hollie is concerned. Many people in Aberdeen are asking just who possesses the courage and decency to stand up against these staggering and shocking crimes against most vulnerable members of society? Certainly not their elected national and local representatives.
UK Column volunteers continue to be shocked by the quantity and quality of evidence reaching them on the subject of paedophile and sexual abuse against young and vulnerable children in care and otherwise. The common theme is that victims and their supporters are unable to get any real support from Members of Parliament, Local Councillors, the Judiciary, Police and other ‘officials’. Many describe the creation of a wall of silence, often accompanied by targetted intimidation against the victims.
Recently a policeman personally told the UK Column that police had themselves experienced their own paedopile investigations suddenly being dropped by senior police officers. He added “If you want to really get to the paedophiles you should look at Westminster”. The implications of this statement are frightening – a paedophile ring amongst our political leaders – the political elite which has control of education and Social Services? The general public needs to open its eyes and confront this evil – and fast.

Italian Prime Minister says Israel should join the European Union, in a u-turn from his earlier remarks criticizing Israel’s settlement policy as an impediment to peace.
“My greatest desire, as long as I am a protagonist in politics, is to bring Israel into membership of the European Union,” said Silvio Berlusconi at the beginning of a three-day visit to Israel on Monday.
Eight Italian ministers accompanying Berlusconi will hold joint cabinet meetings with their Israeli counterparts.

‘A secret plan to foster an internal coup against Saddam Hussein was drawn up by the Government two years before the invasion of Iraq, The Independent can reveal.
Whitehall officials drafted the “contract with the Iraqi people” as a way of signalling to dissenters in Iraq that an overthrow of Saddam would be supported by Britain. It promised aid, oil contracts, debt cancellations and trade deals once the dictator had been removed. Tony Blair’s team saw it as a way of creating regime change in Iraq even before the 9/11 attack on New York.
During his evidence to the inquiry last week, Mr Blair said it was only after 9/11 that serious attention was given to removing Saddam as the attack changed the “calculus of risk”. However, another classified document released by the Iraq inquiry on Friday night showed that No 10 explicitly saw the Contract with the Iraqi People as an early tool to remove the former Iraqi dictator. A memo issued in March 2001 by Sir John Sawers, then Mr Blair’s foreign policy adviser, cited the document under the heading “regime change”.’

Key parts of Tony Blair’s evidence to the Chilcot inquiry into the Iraq War will be held in secret, sources close to the hearings revealed last night.
His conversations with President George Bush when he was prime minister, and crucial details of the decision-making process that led Britain into war, will fall under the scope of national security and the protection of Britain’s relations with the US.
But there are also suggestions by well-placed sources that anything “interesting” will also be shrouded in secrecy, leaving his public appearance containing little more than is already known.

The Neurophone was developed by Dr Patrick Flanagan in 1958. It’s a device that converts sound to electrical impulses. In its original form electrodes were placed on the skin but with defence department developments, the signals can be delivered via satellite. They then travel the nervous system directly to the brain (bypassing normal hearing mechanisms). Dr Flanagan’s “3D holographic sound system” can place sounds in any location as perceived by the targeted / tortured listener. This allows for a variety of deceptions for gullible victims.
Today, the CIA, DIA (etc) use satellites and ground – based equipment to deliver verbal threats, deafening noise and propaganda; using neurophone technology. Anything from TV’s/radio’s appearing to operate when switched off through to “Voices from God” and encounters with “telepathic” aliens are all cons using neurophone technologies to torment, deceive and (most importantly) discredit agency/criminal targets. Naturally, the system can mimic anyone’s voice and automatic computer translations (into any language) are incorporated.
Anecdotal evidence indicates that people like David Koresh, Martin Bryant and others could have been programmed then remotely triggered (or tricked) using harrassment technologies like the neurophone. (Although most of the targets are intelligent and law-abiding). For example, John Lennon’s killer, Mark Chapman, reportedly heard voices before and after silencing the agency-hounded peace advocate. “God” apparently told him to confess verbally.
To explain why others physically moving into the path of the laser (or whatever) do not pick up the signals, please note the following “possibilities”… a) Kirlean photography may be an ancillary system so it’s attuned to the targets personal energy field (their unique EM waves).
As with the final proof, the definitive answer lies in the actual blueprints; secreted in the bowels of the Pentagon or some similar facility. Nonetheless, there is no report of ANY intercepted neurophone signals. If it wasn’t so effective it would not have been used to facilitate silent communications between U.S. government agents/military personnel.

When it comes to selling chemicals that claim to treat H1N1 swine flu, the pharmaceutical industry’s options are limited to two: Vaccines and anti-virals. The most popular anti-viral, by far, is Tamiflu, a drug that’s actually derived from a Traditional Chinese Medicine herb called star anise.
But Tamiflu is no herb. It’s a potentially fatal concentration of isolated chemical components that have essentially been bio-pirated from Chinese medicine. And when you isolate and concentrate specific chemicals in these herbs, you lose the value (and safety) of full-spectrum herbal medicine.
That didn’t stop Tamiflu’s maker, Roche, from trying to find a multi-billion-dollar market for its drug. In order to tap into that market, however, Roche needed to drum up some evidence that Tamiflu was both safe and effective.
Roche engages in science fraud
Roche claims there are ten studies providing Tamiflu is both safe and effective. According to the company, Tamiflu has all sorts of benefits, including a 61% reduction in hospital admissions by people who catch the flu and then get put on Tamiflu.
The problem with these claims is that they aren’t true. They were simply invented by Roche.’

Considering Israel’s crimes against humanity in general and Palestinians in particular, one would expect Britain to send an impartial ambassador to the Jewish state. Judaeo-centric by admission and Zionist by education, Gould is certainly not the man for the job. As Gould himself admits, “the fact that I’m Jewish means I will come with a particular insight and sympathy and understanding, because the story of my family is in certain respects the story of the people of the State of Israel”.

A story emerging out of Britain suggests “follow the money” may explain the enthusiasm of the United Nations to pursue caps on carbon emissions, despite doubts surfacing in the scientific community about the validity of the underlying global warming hypothesis.
A Mumbai-based Indian multinational conglomerate with business ties to Rajendra K. Pachauri, the chairman since 2002 of the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, or IPCC, stands to make several hundred million dollars in European Union carbon credits simply by closing a steel production facility in Britain with the loss of 1,700 jobs.
The Tata Group headquartered in Mumbai anticipates receiving windfall profits of up to nearly $2 billion from closing the Corus Redcar steelmaking plant in Britain, with about half of the savings expected to result from cashing in on carbon credits granted the steelmaker by the European Union under the EU’s emissions trading scheme, or ETS.
Corus has accumulated 7.5 million European Union surplus carbon allowances, or EUAs, given the company free by the EU, after corporate officials lobbied EU officials aggressively in Brussels.
The Corus-owned 7.5 million EUAs are estimated at up to $650 million; the company also anticipates “saving” 6 million tons of carbon dioxide by closing the plant and not producing the plant’s capacity of 3 million tons of steel. The 6 million tons of carbon dioxide is worth an estimated $130 million at current rates and possibly as much as $325 million at expected market levels.

The Optimum Population Trust (OPT), a UK-based “think tank” and registered charity, has launched a new initiative urging wealthy members of the developed world to participate in carbon offsets that fund programs for curbing the population of developing nations. The scheme is being promoted as a more cost-effective way to reduce CO2 emissions than investing in alternative energy sources and offers a way for elitist racists to feel ethical in their quest to exterminate the third world masses.
A BBC News article on the proposal dutifully reports the OPT’s proposal and their justifications for proposing it. They note that the program is designed to fund “contraception” programs in poor nations, a term that helpfully obscures the fact that such programs—including those run by FPA, one of the agencies listed as a supporting organization of this new program—have used bribes to get poor men and women to volunteer for sterilization. The article does, however, allow space for a detractor of the proposal to point out that even if one does accept that limiting carbon emissions is necessary (which it is not), the focus on limiting emissions of people in Least Developed Countries (LDCs) is in itself nonsensical: “Carbon emissions from people in much of sub-Saharan Africa are so low that they can barely be counted.”
What this error exposes, however, is not that the OPT has set its sights on the wrong target. In fact, they are simply introducing the idea as a politically expedient precedent which will eventually be expanded to include the developed world as well. Indeed, this is merely the latest such proposal from the group, which has previously said that the world’s population must be cut by as much as half and the UK’s population reduced to as little as 17 million in order to reach “sustainable levels.” The group’s patrons include world renowned environmental campaigners, academics and media figures like Jane Goodall, James Lovelock and Sir David Attenborough.
One patron of the Optimum Population Trust who stands out is Jonathon Porritt, a well-known baronet and a green campaigner who advises the likes of Prince Charles on environmental matters. He has long argued the link between “environmental sustainability” and enforced abortions. He once claimed to be “unapologetic about asking people to connect up their own responsibility for their total environmental footprint and how they decide to procreate and how many children they think are appropriate.” He is also on the board of BBC Wildlife magazine, perhaps explaining why BBC News tends to treat every pronouncement from the OPT as if it were a major policy announcement (see this and this and this for starters).

I tried to contact Mark Higson the other day only to learn he had died nine years ago. He was just 40, an honourable man. We met soon after he had resigned from the Foreign Office in 1991 and I asked him if the government knew that Hawk fighter-bombers sold to Indonesia were being used against civilians in East Timor.
“Everyone knows,” he said, “except parliament and the public.”
“And the media?”
“The media – the big names – have been invited to King Charles Street (the Foreign Office) and flattered and briefed with lies. They are no trouble.”
As Iraq desk officer at the Foreign Office, he had drafted letters for ministers reassuring MPs and the public that the British Government was not arming Saddam Hussein. “This was a downright lie”, he said. “I couldn’t bear it”.
Giving evidence before the arms-to-Iraq enquiry, Higson was the only British official commended by Lord Justice Scott for telling the truth. The price he paid was the loss of his health and marriage and constant surveillance by spooks. He ended up living on benefits in a Birmingham bedsitter where he suffered a seizure, struck his head and died alone. Whistleblowers are often heroes; he was one.
He came to mind when I saw a picture in the paper of another Foreign Office official, Sir Jeremy Greenstock, who was Tony Blair’s ambassador to the United Nations in the build-up to the invasion of Iraq in 2003. More than anyone, it was Sir Jeremy who tried every trick to find a UN cover for the bloodbath to come. Indeed, this was his boast to the Chilcot enquiry on 27 November, where he described the invasion as “legal but of questionable legitimacy”. How clever. In the picture he wore a smirk.
Under international law, “questionable legitimacy” does not exist. An attack on a sovereign state is a crime. This was made clear by Britain’s chief law officer, Attorney General Peter Goldsmith, before his arm was twisted, and by the Foreign Office’s own legal advisers and subsequently by the secretary-general of the United Nations. The invasion is the crime of the 21st century. During 17 years of assault on a defenceless civilian population, veiled with weasel monikers like “sanctions” and “no fly zones” and “building democracy”, more people have died in Iraq than during the peak years of the slave trade. Set that against Sir Jeremy’s skin-saving revisionism about American “noises” that were “decidedly unhelpful to what I was trying to do [at the UN] in New York”. Moreover, “I myself warned the Foreign Office… that I might have to consider my own position…”.
It wasn’t me, guv.
The purpose of the Chilcot inquiry is to normalise an epic crime by providing enough of a theatre of guilt to satisfy the media so that the only issue that matters, that of prosecution, is never raised. When he appears in January, Blair will play this part to odious perfection, dutifully absorbing the hisses and boos. All “inquiries” into state crimes are neutered in this way. In 1996, Lord Justice Scott’s arms-to-Iraq report obfuscated the crimes his investigations and voluminous evidence had revealed.
At that time, I interviewed Tim Laxton, who had attended every day of the inquiry as auditor of companies taken over by MI6 and other secret agencies as vehicles for the illegal arms trade with Saddam Hussein. Had there been a full and open criminal investigation, Laxton told me, “hundreds” would have faced prosecution. “They would include,” he said, “top political figures, very senior civil servants from right throughout Whitehall … the top echelon of government.”
That is why Chilcot is advised by the likes of Sir Martin Gilbert, who compared Blair with Churchill and Roosevelt. That is why the inquiry will not demand the release of documents that would illuminate the role of the entire Blair gang, notably Blair’s 2003 cabinet, long silent. Who remembers the threat of the thuggish Geoff Hoon, Blair’s “defence secretary”, to use nuclear weapons against Iraq?
In February, Jack Straw, one of Blair’s principal accomplices, the man who let the mass murderer General Pinochet escape justice and the current “justice secretary”, overruled the Information Commissioner who had ordered the government to publish Cabinet minutes during the period Lord Goldsmith was pressured into changing his judgement that the invasion was illegal. How they fear exposure, and worse.
The media has granted itself immunity. On 27 November, Scott Ritter, the former UN chief weapons inspector, wrote that the invasion “was made far easier given the role of useful idiot played by much of the mainstream media in the US and Britain.” More than four years before the invasion, Ritter, in interviews with myself and others, left not a shred of doubt that Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction had been disabled, yet he was made a non-person. In 2002, when the Bush/Blair lies were in full echo across the media, the Guardian and Observer mentioned Iraq in more than 3,000 articles, of which 49 referred to Ritter and his truth that could have saved thousands of lives.
What has changed? On 30 November, the Independent published a pristine piece of propaganda from its embedded man in Afghanistan. “Troops fear defeat at home,” said the headline. Britain, said the report, “is at serious risk of losing its way in Afghanistan because rising defeatism at home is demoralising the troops on the front line, military commanders have warned.” In fact, public disgust with the disaster in Afghanistan is mirrored among many serving troops and their families; and this frightens the warmongers. So “defeatism” and “demoralising the troops” are added to the weasel lexicon.
Good try. Unfortunately, like Iraq, Afghanistan is a crime. Period.
