UK Column News - 7th October 2015

Figures indicate the number of minutes into the broadcast at which the item in question commences.


Brian Gerrish and Mike Robinson are joined by Mark Anderson of American Free Press.

1’]    Following the TTIP “free trade agreement” between the European Union and NAFTA (the North American Free Trade Association), which is still being negotiated, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) has now been signed off by the governments involved.
Anderson calls these arrangements the means whereby corporations rule over nation-states.

4’]    The Financial Times carries the article “TPP trade deal: seven things you need to know”.
The first of its seven points is that the U.S. and Japan are trying to get ahead of China by imposing the TPP.
The second point is that China will be watching all three trade deals (of which TPP is one) very carefully.

5’]    Anderson thinks there is a backdoor possibility being left open for China to join TPP later, even though it has been set up in response to the BRICS alliance of which China is a key member.

6’]    The Canadian opposition leader Tom Mulcair has said that if his party wins the imminent Canadian elections, Canada will not continue with the TPP that current Prime Minister Harper has been pursuing.

8’]    Anderson is not aware of any clauses in the TPP documents allowing a country ever to leave the bloc again once it joins.
NAFTA has been very damaging to the U.S. economy: far more American jobs have been off-shored than American goods exported.

9’]    The actual text of the TPP agreement may be kept secret for another four to five years, although an Australian source reports that it will be disclosed in November (2015).
If it is, Congress might not “pull a fast one” and might hopefully ratify the deal during 2015, Anderson says. That would “coalesce into some real discussion” rather than puff-pieces in the New York Times in favour of “free trade”. Trade deals must not be presented to the public as inevitable in a “pseudo-debate”, he adds.

10’]    A screencap is shown from a Wikileaks video on the “trinity” framework of the three massive “free trade” deals. They align with the Bilderberg tripartite division of the world into Orwellian regional power blocs.
The least known of the three deals is TISA, which involves more nations than either TTIP or TPP. “It seems to be an even larger administrative, connect-the-dots kind of agreement … the glue that holds the other two trade deals together,” Anderson says.

11’]    More detail of Anderson’s judgement on the current state of play.

13’]    The Manchester Evening News carries a report on the anti-austerity rally outside the Conservative Party conference in the city centre. Greater Manchester Police has claimed that policemen with sniper rifles were on a roof at the location only to use the high-powered sights, but Russia Today has shown pictures (shown on screen) indicating that they are using binoculars for observation.
Brian Gerrish identifies these men as “trained killers” who are never going to risk their own lives. He is disgusted by the aggressive posture and slovenly dark dress of the men, unbefitting of British constables.

16’]    Anderson responds that this is of a piece with the recent trend for police to act against the people rather than with them.

17’]    Mining giant Glencore (see last week’s of 30 September from 15’) is trying to “raise more billions to stay alive”.
Bloomberg reports that other speculating commodity traders are taking out huge loans, too.

18’]    Mike Robinson says that it is “nonsense” that these huge loans are indicative of market confidence; they are in place merely to avoid “Armageddon” and are “only a temporary holding position” that will not “stop the downward decline”.

19’]    The Economist, “the City of London mouthpiece of course”, reports a reluctant Fed to the rescue subvention. “The offshore dollar world is almost twice as large as it was in 2007. By the 2020s, it could be as large as America’s banking industry.” Congress or regulators might resist future attempts by the Federal Reserve to arrange emergency subvention.
“The dollar has no peers, but the system it anchors is cracking” — an unprecedented admission by the Economist.

20’]    Anderson responds that the FT is a nearly annual visitor to Bilderberg conferences and that FT editors and others in the same club do sometimes admit their mistakes, only without ever changing their faulty remedies.
“The U.S., like the world, suffers from a lack of purchasing power among the regular population; all the money is funnelled to the top … virtually all money comes into existence as debt, so there’s always this interest drain”. Money leaves the economy almost as quickly as it is pumped in.
Robinson points out that banks have to fill in their own “black hole”.

22’]    The Daily Mail now reports that a “shock new poll” indicates that for the first time, “Britain wants to quit Europe”.
However, says Robinson, “this story is not what it seems”. It is spun to suggest “strong backing for the Prime Minister’s handling of the migrant crisis”. “So what they’re aiming to do is to use the … threat of a British exit from the European Union as an excuse to impose further federalisation, integration of Europe, under the guise of us leaving it, and this poll is part of that rhetoric … Cameron’s track record proves that he is not anti-immigration at all.”
The new treaties being negotiated will “bring Europe into closer federal integration” with an EU army and other state propensities.

25’]    Anderson’s article in the American Free Press “Secretive Globalist Group Reignites Push for ‘United States of Europe’” article… is discussed.
Anderson managed to gain an interview with Henri de Castries of the committee that invites delegates to the annual Bilderberg meetings.
“These guys are almost predictable in their pseudo-sophistication,” Anderson notes. Now, the Bilderberg clique is noising an acknowledgement that Britain might leave the EU and that the Eurozone is eroding.
“They cite that crisis so that they can further solidify either the eurozone or the EU overall. They have to talk like there’s a problem so that they can offer a solution.”

De Castries is a French insurance (AXA) and investment banking magnate.

27’]    Since the 1950s, the European Movement has been claiming that “Europe needs to become Americanised”, because they as federalists have always seen the “U.S. system as a model for a United States of Europe”.

“All these dots connect,” Anderson adds.

28’]    Discussion of Syria. Global Research (a Canadian news outlet) is a “counterweight” to U.S. media sources. The Global Research article under discussion is:
“The Russians are Coming, Sending Troops to Syria, Says the New York Times, It’s a Lie”…

Stephen Lendman, the author, “cites the many reasons why it’s hard to believe what the NYT and the U.S. Administration are saying”, Anderson describes.

“Many are beginning to see” that all the forces in Syria that have sprung seemingly out of nowhere have been formed by Western intelligence agencies.

Russia is the one attacking ISIS, and the U.S. is concerned because ISIS is another creation of U.S. intelligence and this might “expose the underhand dealing” of the U.S. in Syria.

“The real goal is to topple Bashar al-Assad, the leader of Syria, and that’s probably been the real goal all along.” Therefore, Russia now attacking ISIS “changes the whole paradigm”.
This makes the situation sensitive for the U.S., which is “trapped in a box” and does not want its motives to become apparent.

31’]    Robinson summarises: “Obama is left with huge amounts of egg on his face.”
Anderson summarises: ISIS and its like are created as bogeymen, Russia and China know this and declare war on the bogeymen for real, and this flushes out the facts.
“Some people are calling Putin a master chess player in this [situation],” Anderson adds.

33’]    Following last night’s BBC Panorama documentary…
Simon Danczuk, an MP and long-time campaigner against child abuse, has tweeted that he was uninvited from BBC radio at the last minute to discuss the issue.
John Mann, one of the very few MPs still prepared to campaign against child abuse cover-up, has tweeted a direct claim that the BBC has credible footage of a testimony of child abuse. “Why are they not broadcasting?”, he asks.

34’]    Gerrish replies that the reason is that the BBC’s job is to keep the lid on paedophilia. Cameron was not lying, Gerrish adds, when he said that child abuse was a matter of national security. After all, it could easily bring down the government.

35’]    The former Bishop of Lewes (Sussex) and of Gloucester, Peter Ball, has been sentenced after admitting paedophilic offences. As reported in the Guardian and elsewhere, he was greatly protected by members of the Royal Family.
“Another case of the British Establishment protecting its own,” says Robinson.

Gerrish points out that the bishop in question was given a home on the estate of the Duchy of Cornwall (i.e. owned by Prince Charles).

36’]    Gerrish responds to the “disgusting” Panorama episode (see above).

Why has the BBC given this a “Parental Guidance lock” when it daily pumps out shocking material with no such warning?

Detective Chief Superintendent (2006-2011) Sue Hill attacked the Metropolitan Police in the programme, “slipping a stiletto into the Met for the BBC” (Gerrish says).

38’]    The closing credits of the Panorama episode confirm that it was Ceri Thomas who edited this programme (who, as regularly covered by the UK Column, was the same producer who put paid to a BBC Radio 4 Today Programme researcher’s attempts in 2012 to investigate abuse at the subsequently-rebranded Oxford and Cherwell Valley College).

39’]    The BBC’s line in this episode has been: What if all the child abuse accusations have been made up? Isn’t that a waste of police time? This was “clearly a trial by the BBC of the very witnesses who have come forward to talk about the abuse”.
Witness Chris Fay in particular suffers an absolute character assassination in the programme.

40’]    Something that “puzzles” Gerrish is that the BBC consistently used Exaro film footage for this episode even though Exaro has been “squealing” for the past week that it did not wish to be involved.
Does this indicate Exaro collusion with the BBC?

41’]    The lugubrious sympathy for the late “poor old Leon Brittan” was “absolutely pitiful to watch”.
Other messages from the programme, as Gerrish puts it, are: that people coming forward with abuse stories are not to be trusted; that doing so will not help other victims anyway; that politicians should keep their noses out of child abuse accusations; and “let’s protect the accused because some of them are famous and have nice careers”.
Even former Director of Public Prosecutions Lord (Ken) Macdonald was roped in to the programme to tell the BBC that he entirely agreed that the police had made “mistakes” and that those accused of child abuse needed protection.

43’]    Gerrish says that the public, if outraged, should be writing to get the BBC, “this £3,650,000,000 organisation”, closed down.
Robinson notes the “mood music” in the programme too, and shadowy interview lighting for the people who were supposed to be discredited by the viewers.

44’]    An “unbelievably biased … trial by docudrama”, “using every tool in the box”, concludes Gerrish.

45’]    “Don’t believe the police, don’t believe the witnesses, believe Panorama,” is the message (says Gerrish).

46’]    Anderson describes the 1980s Boys Town scandal (Nebraska boys supplied to politicians) and its parallels with what has been happening more lately in Britain.

47’]    Gerrish notes that Panorama gave no background in terms of the scale of actual convictions for child abuse, such as the “reports of hundreds of children being abused” in North Wales and some “dying in suspicious circumstances”.
No questions were asked about what William Hague did with dossiers that were handed to him; the focus was exclusively on the Elm Guest House accusations.

48’]    Anderson notes that “dirt” held on people is a “controlling factor”.
