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.

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.

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”.’

Around the world police states are becoming the dominant form of government. Even citizens from countries trained to perceive themselves as free are fast becoming aware that they are living under an ever enlarging fascist central government. The evidence of this increasing tide of tyranny can be found internationally, from local and regional governments to federal agencies and world organizations like the World Trade Organization, The World Health Organization, Codex Alimentarius and others. The code of law has been subverted by statutes, acts, bills, and even executive orders enacted to control (enslave) the world population. Many have been reduced to debt slaves already.
The countries of Europe find themselves subject to the European Union’s directives, each year losing more of their individual rights to self determination. How many times will the Irish people need to vote NO on the Lisbon Treaty before the EU accepts NO? The answer is until the European Union gets the result they desire. Despite voting NO previously, the new vote in Ireland on the Lisbon Treaty is a YES. This latest vote makes it crystal clear that the European Union is not prepared to accept independence of thought and action in it’s member states. Whether the yes vote was achieved by throwing millions of euros into a program of mass brainwashing through the media or whether it was a fixed vote with a predetermined outcome the result remains the same, centralized control and loss of autonomy. Now that the vote reflects the policy the European Union is trying to push we can be certain they will not request another vote on the Lisbon Treaty in Ireland. In essence what this means is that the votes of the citizens mean nothing to the power crazed politicians unless it conforms to their predetermined outcome.
This does not mean that we should stop saying NO. What it means is that more and more people around the world need to start saying NO! It is time for millions even billions, to start saying NO! NO we will not cooperate with our own enslavement! We need to say NO not just once or twice but as often as necessary until the draconian power structure which is perpetrating this abuse is dismantled.
How many more wars of foreign aggression will the American citizens allow before they en masse say NO? This is a wake up call to not just the civilians but most especially to the military and police. How long will you continue to follow orders which are contributing to the subjugation of the very populous you are pledged to protect? How many more incidents of violence similar to those which occurred at the G-20 and G-8 demonstrations will it take before it dawns on the masses that they are living in a police state? How many more check points, searches, wiretaps, electronic surveillance programs, video surveillance cameras and other abuses of our civil liberties will it take, before we say NO MORE!?!
When we say NO en masse to injustice we have great power to create positive change. History has shown this to be true in causes great and small. The methods of non-violent non-compliance espoused and enacted by men like Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. are effective. Martin Luther King Jr. once said “I submit that an individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for the law.” While this statement is absolutely true, it has been shown that if enough people say no and break a law non-violently in unison the system is overwhelmed and can not respond by putting everyone in prison. This sort of mass non-compliance was the reason for the demise of the poll tax in England, too many people simply refused to pay.
The time for active nonviolent non-compliance on a global scale has come. One of the first things we need to address is the threat of mandatory vaccinations. The effects of mercury in the thimerosal, aluminum, live attenuated virus and squalene on your immune system has the potential to be devastating. Just say “NO.” NO I will not allow big pharma to endanger my health for a profit. NO I will NOT take the H1N1 (swine flu) vaccine or any other mandatory vaccines.
We must not stop with saying no to the the vaccine alone however. We must say no to injustice in all forms. Refuse to participate in wars of aggression or unconstitutional and unjust police actions if you are in the armed forces or the police. Each and every one of us needs to break any and all unjust laws. Vote with your wallet and refuse to pay as the citizens of England did when they did not pay the poll tax. In places such as America where seed banking and organic gardening are under attack from legislation, like bill HR8750, plant an organic garden and harvest your own seeds, (in fact plant one wherever you are in the world.)
Get the word out on the streets that all of us have our freedom at stake if we do not act now. If you write make flyers, write books, post blogs. If you make music sing about it. If you make artwork show people that way. Filmmakers make films about the issues that confront us. Hand out hard copies, post it on the web. Talk to friends and family hand out flyers, suggest websites or films that you or others have made. Get the information out anyway you can so that as many people around the world realize they have the choice to just say “NO.”
I conclude not with my own words but with the immortal words of Martin Luther King Jr: “Cowardice asks the question - is it safe? Expediency asks the question - is it politic? Vanity asks the question - is it popular? But conscience asks the question - is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular; but one must take it because it is right.”

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.

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 bill proposed by the British government and now making its way through parliament would impose the most burdensome and intrusive regulation on homeschooling in the English-speaking world.
“This bill is breathtaking in its scope and reflects a perverse level of suspicion towards parents who home-educate their children,” says HSLDA Staff Attorney and Director of International Relations Michael Donnelly. “If this bill were to pass, it would be the most restrictive and overbearing law in the English-speaking world. It places total discretion in the hands of local educational officials to determine whether or not they will ‘register’ a home education program and would require criminal background checks for parents before they could begin homeschooling their own children.”

On the heels of a similar proposal being pushed in Copenhagen in the name of fighting global warming, the European Union has asked the IMF to introduce a global tax on financial transactions in order to fund more bailouts – in other words, the globalists are devising yet more ways to plunder the taxpayer into servitude to the private banks that they own.
“The European Union increased pressure on the International Monetary Fund on Friday to consider a global tax on financial transactions to limit the risk of another economic crisis,” reports the London Telegraph.
The EU wants a “global financial transaction levy” in order to “fund future financial bailouts,” as British Prime Minister Gordon Brown called for during the G20.
This is nothing more than yet another veil for the global tobin tax that will be used to bankroll the system of world government that Brown, the EU and the IMF have incessantly called for and rapidly advanced on the back of the economic crisis.
Taxpayers in the European Union are already picking up the tab for the massive bailouts that have taken place over the past year in the form of higher taxes – now they are set to be financially raped further in the form of transaction taxes. Once the globalists get a foot in the door by taxing international transactions related to the financial industry, they will seek to expand the levy to cover all purchases. European citizens already pay such taxes domestically in the form of VAT (value added tax) on most purchases, which is set to revert back to 17.5 percent in the UK from January 1st.
So the globalists already take a huge chunk in tax from most purchases we make, they take another huge chunk in the form of higher taxes to pay for the bailouts that have already happened, and now they want to take another slice in the form of an international transaction tax – and this is before the raft of other taxes that are currently being readied in Copenhagen under the justification of the global warming fraud.

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).

Criminals from Liverpool and Manchester have been warned by police in Lancashire: “Stay out of our county.”
From today police are stopping and quizzing motorists on routes from Merseyside and Greater Manchester into Lancashire.
They are “locking down” roads as part of an operation to thwart travellers who commit robberies and burglaries in the county.
Offenders will be stopped at Lancashire’s borders using all available resources, including firearms officers, motorway officers, dog patrols and the Air Support Unit.
Officers will also be using specialist Automatic Number Plate Recognition equipment to identify stolen vehicles and will also be on the look out for known criminals. The first operation is taking place today from 8am until midnight.

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.

Stern new signs at a college in Cambridge warn that mothers and fathers cannot enter the premises if they have not been fully vetted.
It is the latest CRB controversy following bans on unchecked parents walking children to a carol concert and supervising at a play park.
Councillors yesterday called the signs at Manor Community College ‘extreme’, warning they could alienate parents.
This includes volunteers, visitors and contractors.

Lord Christopher Monckton warns that the secretive draft version of the Copenhagen climate change treaty represents a global government power grab on an “unimaginable scale,” and mandates the creation of 700 new bureaucracies as well as a colossal raft of new taxes including 2 percent levies on both GDP and every international financial transaction.
Speaking with The Alex Jones Show, Monckton, who is in Copenhagen attending the UN climate summit, said that when he attempted to obtain a copy of the current draft of the negotiating text agreement, he was initially rebuffed before he threatened an international diplomatic incident unless the document was forthcoming.
“I insisted and it took about 10 minutes and they consulted each other with three or four of them arguing over it – none of them would produce the document….I said I know this treaty exists because this is what the conference is all about,” said Monckton.
Only after Monckton threatened repercussions was he handed the the current draft of the treaty, and the details it contained are perhaps a clue as to why the UN officials were so keen to keep it under wraps.
“Once again they are desperately trying to conceal from everybody here the magnitude of what they’re attempting to do – they really are attempting to set up a world government,” said Monckton, adding that the word “government” was no longer used but the process of further centralization of power into global hands was clearly spelled out in the treaty.
Monckton said that the new world government outlined in the treaty would be handed powers to, “Tax the American economy to the extent of 2 percent GDP, to impose a further tax of 2 percent on every financial transaction….and to close down effectively the economies of the west, transfer your jobs to third world countries – all of that is still in the treaty draft.”
As the leaked document out of Copenhagen reported on by the London Guardian revealed yesterday, this massive new system of global taxation will be paid not to the UN, but directly into the coffers of the World Bank.
“The draft hands effective control of climate change finance to the World Bank; would abandon the Kyoto protocol – the only legally binding treaty that the world has on emissions reductions; and would make any money to help poor countries adapt to climate change dependent on them taking a range of actions,” reported the Guardian.

The opening days of the Copenhagen climate-change conference have been rife with denials and—dare we say it?—deniers. American delegate Jonathan Pershing said the emails and files leaked from East Anglia have helped make clear “the robustness of the science.” Talk about brazening it out. And Rajendra Pachauri, the head of the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and so ex-officio guardian of the integrity of the science, said the leak proved only that his opponents would stop at nothing to avoid facing the truth of climate change. Uh-huh.
Mr. Pachauri and his allies are fond of pointing out that climate change science is bigger than East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU), and that other institutions’ research backs the theory. This is true. But it’s also the best argument for opening up to public scrutiny both the raw data and the computer code that lies behind pronouncements of looming climate catastrophe. Citizen-researchers—some of whom are, indeed, skeptics—have been after some of this information for years. CRU’s apparent obstruction of freedom-of-information requests, as revealed by the leaks, is only the tip of the iceberg.
