Earlier this week a man was sentenced to jail for sending an offensive tweet to labour MP Luciana Berger. 

Earlier this week a man was sentenced to jail for sending an offensive tweet to labour MP Luciana Berger. This nudge focuses on freedom of speech and the various pieces of legislation and events that have been used to erode that most important right. It is a fundamental principal of a 'democracy' that people be allowed to express their opinion, but there is also a thin line between a person's right to free speech and a person's right to a peaceful life, free from threats or harm.

There is no need to look any further than Westminster to see how Britain is being destroyed from within. There are no more intelligent debates in that house. Policy is made not by MPs but by 'civil servants', NGOs, Charities and 'Independent' Policy Units under 'Chatham House' rules of secrecy. No surprise then that Thersa May has been giving revealing speeches at the 'independent' Reform think tank. 

Thanks to an alert UKColumn reader who picked up on the text and the hidden meaning, we can now reveal what Theresa has really got planned for policing in UK.  She lets things slip in the following excerpts of her speech:

Let’s deal with reality. Melanie Shaw sits in Sodexo high security prison Peterborough. She has been there on remand since her trial at Nottingham Crown Court on 25 July 2014. Members of the public who attended that first trial, report that Nottinghamshire Police and the Crown Prosecution Service produced no substantive evidence against Melanie on charges of Arson Reckless and Criminal Damage.

An update on Beechwood Child Abuse Victim and Whistleblower Melanie Shaw - her suffering reveals the State of the Nation.

Dear Mrs May,

I am writing to you over my concerns surrounding the recent appointment of Fiona Woolf as head of the Westminster Child Abuse Inquiry.. 

I am sure you are aware there is a public controversy in this matter and it is in the public interest that these questions are being asked.

A key whistleblowing witness and victim of child abuse at Nottingham Beechwood Children’s Home is effectively missing after sending a text to the UK Column starting…”pls ring urgent, something has happened n I don’t trust the police and I may be locked up tomorrow…” Sent at 21:22 on Wednesday 9th July 2014 the UK Column has been trying to locate the witness ever since. 

This witness has reported to us rape, intimidation, beatings, physical and emotional threats as just some of the abuses suffered by vulnerable young children at Beechwood, but some youngsters were also witnesses to ‘suicides’ - children ‘falling’ from upper windows. Other witnesses report that children’s bodies were hidden on the site.

Fearful for the physical safety of this highly vulnerable witness, who already alleges a police cover-up and is fearful of the police, we contacted Nottinghamshire Police via their 101 phone line.

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”.

Today the Financial Services (Banking Reform) Bill was given Royal Assent, formalising it as an Act of Parliament.

Sajid Javid, Financial Secretary to the Treasury, is "delighted that the Banking Reform Bill has received Royal Assent. This is a major milestone and marks the end of a three year process, led by the government, to make the UK banking system stronger and safer so that it can support the economy, help businesses and serve consumers."

The Act puts in place the so-called and much lauded "ring-fence" which is being presented as "bank separation".

Which it isn't.

Following publication of my research article 'A Government of Common Purpose' I received an email suggesting that I research an organisation named 'Locality'. This is what I discovered.

Upon visiting their website I recollected a series of questions posed by a concerned UK Column reader in February 2011. He wrote:

As I understand it 5,000 Community Organisers have been selected and trained, and are each to be given £20,000 for the first year. Does anybody know what the selection criteria were, who selected them, who trained them etc? Did Common Purpose have a role in any of the above? Are they all pre-existing CP graduates?

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.

The net encircles them, traps them and ultimately allows the fish to be pulled from their living environment to be killed. There are of course many different styles of net - from trawls to purse-seine, a vast net that is drawn closed like the strings of a soft money purse. In something of a record, this net has previously encircled a single shoal of over 1,000 tonnes of herring in UK waters.

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.

The secret gathering has been gradually forced into public view in recent years, and the run-up to Bilderberg 2013 has been one of great anticipation and not without its share of news.

For change to work, the discontent with the present must be greater than the tolerance of it – Robert Rowland Smith, philosopher

Isn't this the perception we are being fed about the state of parts of our NHS? Might this not suggest that it is being deliberately sabotaged from within?

The most damaging failings were illustrated following the 31 month Public Inquiry into unnecessary deaths at the Mid Staffordshire NHS Trust between 2005 and 2009, failings in which elderly and vulnerable patients were left unwashed, unfed and without fluids. When presenting his findings Robert Francis QC told his audience, “This is a story of appalling and unnecessary suffering of hundreds of people.

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?

A Very British Operation

The entire Islamic fundamentalist movement is British foreign policy. The "fifth column" which has been inhabiting our "establishment" (as well as that of the USA) since the end of the second world war, financed by international monied interests in the City of London and Wall Street, is the true source.

Yesterday evening, Jon Snow tweeted "Stock Market hits a high not seen since 1999 ... do I hear alarm bells ringing ... or just the one for close of business." 

If alarm bells are not ringing, they should be.

A couple of weeks ago, Business Insider made the point quite clearly in their chart of the day: investors are now leveraging their stock market bets like its 2007.

Speculators mad leveraging of their bets

In other words, they are betting with money they don't have, and it is this debt bubble which is driving the stock market.

The newspapers are determined to enrage their readers with the shocking news of corporate tax avoidance. But what is behind the headlines?

The news headlines continue to be filled with rhetoric designed to enrage. Google, Amazon, Apple and Starbucks are all in the crosshairs for "evading" tax. They're "evil". It's "outrageous". We should experience "anger", "rage", "fury".

In 2001, a decision was made by the Information Commissioner’s Office that schools using biometric systems did not breach the Data Protection Act. This decision gave Britain the accolade of being the first country in the world to commercially market biometric technology to UK schools.

In the UK, schools hold masses of data about our children.  They are one of the most surveilled school populations in the world, not only in the subjects they study, their health and eating habits, but also through the use of biometrics and location RFID tagging.

Between 2001 and 2012, biometric systems in education were initially used for library systems in primary and secondary schools. By 2006 biometrics were increasingly used for cashless catering, school lockers, school trip money payments and registration.

Brian Gerrish speaks to Tim Rogers about the psychological attack on our children, and the effect it is having on their minds up to and including suicide.

Oxford Child Safeguarding Board and Thames Valley Police invest £1million to re-brand child-protection failure.

The UK Column has run a series of detailed articles exposing widespread physical and sexual abuse which took place over many years at Oxford and Cherwell Valley College (OCVC). Threatened with ‘action’ by the College, we have stuck to our guns in the knowledge that the serious allegations come from multiple individuals, with supporting documentary evidence, including statements, dates, times, names and more. The young victims all report a culture of intimidation and cover-up.

A little known historical fact that will collapse even further the reputation of the City of London.

As I start to write this article, today is Remembrance Sunday and I’m listening live to the sombre but magnificent strains of Elgar’s Nimrod as the parade at The Cenotaph assembles for the nation’s annual act of remembrance to the fallen. Like almost everyone else, I’m always humbled and moved by the veterans’ march-pass to pay their respects to fallen friends and comrades – but this year I will find it particularly poignant in the light of my recent research concerning a little known fact about the outbreak of the First World War. Let me explain.

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?

On 23rd September the Orwellian sounding UN Regional Information Centre for Western Europe announced that:

“Governments love child abuse ... No other criminal activity ... gives such control over those who commit it.” - Jersey Senator Stuart Syvret

In investigating the horrors of the OCVC sexual and physical abuse, and the pornographic videos, including child pornography and videos of children being physically beaten, torture and extreme abuses in Afghanistan, the UK Column has met ex-students, read witness statements and studied their documentation. We have printed names and photographs of individuals linked to abuses, such as OCVC staff members Andrew Fellows and John Guiver.  We know that this and much other evidence has been submitted to the appropriate authorities.

A murky pool of vested interest, where monsters wait to swallow the free press and media bite by bite.

The UK Column has already written a number of articles warning about the real Leveson Inquiry agenda - and that agenda is political control of the free press and media in Britain. Stirring the Leveson Inquiry pond, we have already exposed the extraordinary links between major funders and supposedly charitable trusts, and the very people now thrust forward to judge the values and performance of the press and media in this country.

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.

This is not a new agenda. It has been pushed since before the twentieth century by, among others, the “rat pack” of the Huxleys, H.G. Wells, Bertrand Russell and the like. And it finds its expression in a host of organisations, “think” tanks, NGOs and committees.

The most obvious example of those organisations, of course, is Julian Huxley’s United Nations.

The following formal complaint was sent to the website today. The trustees of ths pseudo-charity are: Hon. Michael Samuel (Chairman), Simon Briscoe, Lord David Lipsey, Baroness Julia Neuberger and Professor Jean Seaton.

Dear Sir,


Following our brief telephone conversation this afternoon - I take issue with your article posted on the fullfact website dated 3rd July 2012 15:14.

You claim that:

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.
