On the 20th May 2012 the only person ever convicted of the 1988 Lockerbie bombing, Abdelbaset Al Megrahi, died of cancer in Libya. Examination of contemporary events at the time of the bombing, the manner in which subsequent investigations were pursued, and the way in which the eventual trial (in 2000) of defendants Abdelbaset Al Megrahi and Al Amin Khalifa Fhimah was handled, leads (ultimately) to some highly disturbing insights into the deceits that lie at the heart of “regime change”, and of “the war on global terrorism”.
David Cameron declares his interests with Common Purpose. Suddenly the press and media realise that he was part of the same Common Purpose that created the Leveson Inquiry. It was an oversight? No State Control of the Press is by appointment....
The net closes in on every man, woman and child. The fishing net is an effective hunting weapon. Simple, easily made, the net is initially not seen by the fish, and then when they eventually encounter the mesh, all escape routes are blocked. The net encircles them, traps them and ultimately allows the fish to be pulled from their living environment to be killed.
It has been claimed, following ‘startling new figures’, that crime rates have plummeted in the western world. Robberies, car thefts and murders are all falling substantially, and, according to the data, in some cases crime has practically vanished.
Prime Minister David Cameron, Tory MP Brooks Newmark and US sources claim that chemical weapons have been used in Syria. This 'fact' is then used to ramp up the call for military action to ensure that Assad is overthrown. But are the chemical weapons fact and where is the evidence?
This year’s annual Bilderberg conference is rapidly approaching - where the world’s political and business elite meet in private to discuss their agenda which will determine future policies that govern global affairs.
Following the events in Woolwich last week, we are revisiting an article originally written for the UK Column newspaper in 2010.
While we deplore anyone's killing, it is important to look at the historical context, and ask the question, if our government is inciting terrorism through direct support of al-Qaida in Iraq and Syria when it suits their purposes, is Britain not responsible when events such as those which took place last week occur?
Foreign Secretary William Hague said yesterday that Britain will veto the renewal of the EU arms embargo on Syria when foreign ministers meet next week, if member states block moves to permit weapons to be transferred to the terrorist opposition.
The recent show of force by the United States marks one of the lowest points in modern diplomacy, but beyond the geopolitical theatrics it turns out that very little is actually known about the North Korean threat.
An internet search for ‘Inter-Parliamentary Union’ yielded not one result from the UK mainstream media. The IPU had featured in reports in the Australian, the Ceylon Daily News, the Pakistan Daily Times, the Trinidad Guardian, the Malay Mail and the Ottawa Citizen. This prompted us to ask: What is the IPU and should our readers take an interest in it?
Many people have heard of the National Farmers Union, but how many of us are aware of the power the National Farmers Union has to make legislation, or determine prices. In a shocking discovery, it appears that not only does the National Farmers Union have these powers, but they have been made statutory.
That we live in a world of “Agenda Politics” is absolutely clear. Governments come and go, but the agenda never changes. Policies left incomplete by one government are taken up with gusto by the next. Civil servants get involved in writing party manifestos.
One of the most obvious of the agendas that our politicians are pushing is that of “World Government”. The British Parliament is now subservient to so many foreign bodies and institutions it is hard to keep count.
“Full Fact is an independent fact-checking organisation. We make it easier to see the facts and context behind the claims made by the key players in British political debate and press those who make misleading claims to correct the record" - so says fullfact.org, under the bold headline of "Promoting Accuracy in the public debate".
Previous reports, published in the last six months, have provided detailed analysis of extraordinary events that took place in Scotland some 20 years ago – events that had (and continue to have) important implications throughout the UK.. That analysis uncovered criminal behaviour, by officers of The Crown, to pervert laws intended to protect young people from serious abuse and exploitation.
A stunning verdict has been handed down. In a judicial move hardly seen witnessed in wartime, let alone in peacetime, the UK’s military establishment has been given the green light by a high court to quarter residential homes - without any permission or notice.
