I'm alright Jack!

Oilmen - "The American Beauty Rose can only be coaxed to that degree of splendor and fragrance that enchants us by sacrificing the other buds growing around it. In the business world, the same operation is the result not of an unhealthy trend, but simply of a law of nature and of God." ~ John D. Rockefeller, Jr.

The President is not in control

Given the recent scandal with regard to massive worldwide surveillance by US intelligence agencies, notably the NSA and UK's GCHQ including the monitoring of the phone conversations of 35 world leaders particularly German Chancellor Merkel, the reader will find the following short YouTube video very revealing.

Former Canadian Defence Minister Paul Hellyer asserts that the White House has lost control of huge swathes of strategic government sectors. To some this might come as a shocking revelation. To others this will be seen as just another ridiculous conspiracy theory. Others will have known this for a long time.

However, the conspiracy theorists have strong evidence on their side. We have a clear warning of the dangers of an over-powerful industrial military complex from one of America's most respected Presidents, notably General Eisenhower and the revelation of a "monolitic and ruthless conspiracy" from another great President, John F Kenney.

Those who believe that the massive US surveillance scandal is principally about spying are being deceived. It is not. It is about an inexcusable abuse of power, unwarranted secrecy and non-compliance with the law. It is not just about gathering information on potential terrorist threats. It is far more about gathering any and all information on everybody and everything and having a monopoly over its control. The President, by his own admission was not informed that Chancellor Merkel's phone was being monitored even though he has had several one to one meetings with her! If he is being kept out of the loop on such basic matters as spying on world leaders, what else is he not being told?

Despite all this intelligence gathering, the security services were not able to prevent the Boston bombing or the Nairobi Westgate terror atrack to mention but two. Probably too busy listening to Merkel's telephone calls! There is much more that can be said about these particular attacks but that is not what this article is about. It is about the inevitable abuses of power that always occurs and always will occur when power is cloaked in secrecy and let no one convince you otherwise. The nature of secret operations means it is far more difficult to monitor and hold to account those agents and activities that are hidden from view. It equally negates transparency.

This is really what the Snowden revelations are about. It is about abuse of power and our right to decide what our governments do or dont do in our name. Before Snowden we really did not know the extent of these nefarious activities. That right to know had been withdrawn arbitrarily and without our knowledge and far less, our consent. That is what this hoopla is really all about and its of vital importance we do not lose sight of it as it impinges on our democratic rights, our freedoms, our privacy and above all our right to hold our representatives to account!

Unwittingly, Snowdens's revelations have also highlighted a more disturbing question! Who is running America? How much does the President really know? Who is pulling the strings?

Democracy no longer fit for purpose - Club of Rome

Club of Rome, The First Global Revolution -

"Democracy is not a panacea. It cannot organize everything and it is unaware of its own limits. These facts must be faced squarely. Sacrilegious though this may sound, democracy is no longer well suited for the tasks ahead. The complexity and the technical nature of many of today's problems do not always allow elected representatives to make competent decisions at the right time".


This is the biggest red herring since herrings came into being! Parliamentary democracy is and has always been about defining the moral and social parameters within which technocrats must operate. Just because one does not know how a computer is engineered or the nuts and bolts of supersonic flight, atom bombs, robotics, astro- physics or neurology does not mean one is unfit to make decisions or pass laws apertaining to them.

The role of leadership is to seek expert advice and obtain recommendations, analyse the pros and cons and make decisions. No one person can possibly be an expert in everything anymore than an engineer, a scientist, brain surgeon or a wine taster can. Was John F Kennedy an astronaut or a rocket engineer? No, but that did not stop him sending a man to the moon!

It would be an absolute disaster to allow a bunch of technocrats with their own agendas and prejudices to form policies without reference to a democraticaly elected body! Technocrats are no less prone to the temptations of power and dictatorship than anyone else. The Club of Rome is amongst them and has its own agenda to take over the world and the arrogance to believe they should.

Childbearing should be punishable crime - David Brower

David Brower, first Executive Director of the Sierra Club -

"Childbearing should be a punishable crime against society, unless the parents hold a government license. All potential parents should be required to use contraceptive chemicals, the government issuing antidotes to citizens chosen for childbearing".

People must be cut out like cancer - Professor Paul Ehrlich

Prof. Paul Ehrlich,

"The Population Bomb - "A cancer is an uncontrolled multiplication of cells, the population explosion is an uncontrolled multiplication of people. We must shift our efforts from the treatment of the symptoms to the cutting out of the cancer. The operation will demand many apparently brutal and heartless decisions".

If the American people knew what G.H.W. Bush had done!

George H. W. Bush -

"If the American people knew the damage we had done to their country, they would hang us from the nearest lamp posts". (From an interview with White House correspondent Sarah McClendon - 1992)

Global warming - dont mention doubts!

Stephen Schneider, Stanford Professor of Climatology, lead author of many IPCC reports -

"We need to get some broad based support, to capture the public's imagination... So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements and make little mention of any doubts... Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest".

Letter to New York Post re 9/11


After many hours, days and months of research with regard to the events of 9/11, it is my absolute conviction that the events as reported by the US government and by the 9/11 Commission do not represent the truth and that the mainstream media has failed in its duty to investigate these matters properly.

To the journalists at the New York Post, I humbly remind you that you owe it to yourselves, your families and all who believe in freedom and democracy to ensure that governments are held accountable or risk the emergence of an authoritarian, corrupt and evil tyranny. The truth is our protection against the excesses of those who accord themselves absolute power by the few over the many.

Message to LibDems on Europe

I received an email from MEP Graham Watson trying to garner support for remaining in the EU that contained a survey loaded to produce the result he wanted in that questions presented no alternative to EU solutions.

Herewith my comments to him:

The LibDem claims that they and they alone are responsible for anything good done by the coalition government and were it not for them, the nasty conservatives would have ruined the country, are frankly laughable. The LibDems have demonstrated immaturity to the point of purility by making such outrageous claims. A Party, especially one as junior as the LibDems, that feels the need to belittle their partners in Coalition is not fit for govenment.

The Conservatives have their faults but they have generally resisted the temptation to reciprocate.

With regard to Europe, the majority of people in this country, remain vehemently opposed to becoming a county of an undemocratic political entity that has endevoured to build an EU superstate by stealth and deceit. The EU vision of the world is jurassic.  It is built on the old principles of power politics which have led the world to the precipice on which it now stands.

Britain should be the country that breaks this mould. We do not need to be nor should we be contstrained by the flawed vision of these European pen pushers. Trade should be free, not contstrained by political unions and trading blocks based on misconceived ideologies  and erroneous political perceptions of self interest that ultimately conflict with the equally misconceived perceptions of self interest of other political unions and trading blocks. At best it is weak thinking and at worst its plain insane.

The world must look to the common interests of all nations. Only then can we gurantee our own interests. Britain must open up to the entire world and not just a part of it. We must promote free trade with all nations based on level playing fields. We must be willing partners with all who are willing to be partners with us.

This country is in a unique position with our ties to the Commonwealth and we must build on that. India, Australia, Canada as well as many emerging, South American, African and Asian economies are every bit as important, if not more so than the EU alone. Let us free ourselves from the shackles of divisive political unions and instead build partnerships based on free trade and real mutual interest.

That is a vision of progressive freedom based on common interest, not self interest. That is a vision of the future  worth fighting for and one which would excite the people of this country.

That is the alternative to the mundane and outdated solution proposed by the Eurocrats. Where does it say in the manual of all wisdom that trade or jobs are dependent on political union? Its a fallacy. Jobs and wealth are dependent on trade not politics and trade builds sustainable partnerships and co-operation based on mutual interest which is in the self interest of all concerned.

Its time the political classes grew up and that very much includes the LibDems. The world needs radical new ideas in the 21st century to replace the old restrictive and divisive political philosophies that have served us so poorly in the past.

The nature of Nature

The universal nature has no external space; but the wondrous part of her art is that though she has circumscribed herself, everything which is within her which appears to decay and to grow old and to be useless she changes into herself, and again makes other new things from these very same, so that she requires neither substance from without nor wants a place into which she may cast that which decays. She is content then with her own space, and her own matter, and her own art.

The virtue of knowledge

"No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when people are universally ignorant, and debauched in their manners, they will sink under their own weight without the aid of foreign invaders."

Syria - the great test of true leadership

When politicians constantly muddy the waters of truth with incessant spin to make themselves look better or to deceive the public into thinking things are better than they really are, we the public, no longer know what to believe. The public naturally becomes highly sceptical. Worse it loses respect for the political classes and authority in general. This is a searing condemnation of those we elected to represent us.

We find they are undeserving of our trust and thus our respect. Thus we are unable to believe a word they say. They show us by their actions how indifferent they are to the truth and the general public. They take us for fools and thus make fools of themselves, something they appear not to comprehend at all or if they do, they dont care. That is the saddest indictment of their lack of integrity and wisdom and it is truly staggering.

Hence when Cameron and Obama stand up and tells us that the Assad regime is guilty of using chemical weapons against its own people and they are preparing to strike, despite conflicting evidence, despite the fact that a UN inspection team is on the ground gathering evidence which has not yet been presented, we are naturally dumbfounded and extremely sceptical.

Why would Assad risk losing his only remaining allies, Russia, China and Iran? Its sheer stupidity. It does not make sense. That is not to say that his regime is not capable of such idiocy but it is as yet far from proven. That Obama, Cameron and their supposed allies were prepared to strike without having all the facts being gathered by UN inspectors to hand, smacks of political impropriety at the very least. At worst it smacks of much more sinster motives including deception and lack of regard for truth.

We must never again allow ourselves to be used as cannon fodder by the elite for their lust for power and control over the world's financial, mineral and agricultural resources. We are sick of these antiquated dinosaurs and their twisted perception of the politics of power and domination that have led the world down a path of mutual destruction and insanity for millenia.

We the people are no longer prepared to be sacrificial lambs in this monstrous game of self agrandisment of the few at the expense of the many. We are not pawns. We are people. We demand peace for everyone, food on the table for all, free universal education and the right to bring our children up in tranquilty wherever we live in the world.

We demand that those we elect to represent us stop investing in war and switch resources towards investment in peace. That is the only hope of creating a peaceful world. We elect politicians not to make the world worse but better. That is how we ensure our survival. There is no other. Love begets love and hate begets hate. Its that simple.

Cameron's and Obama's legacy, unlike those who have gone before will be decided by their ability to steer the world away from war not to take it to war for which history will forever condemn them.

Risks of Genetically modified food - evidence

Communication from War On Want

The Environment Minister Owen Paterson is backing genetically modified food - neglecting evidence provided in the longest independent study on genetically modified (GM) corn feed to date.  The ground-breaking 2012 study links GM and the use of pesticide Roundup to organ damage and increased risk of tumours. Previous studies have been carried out by companies such as Monsanto who themselves produce GM crops.

War on Want has helped organise a speaker tour, giving you the opportunity to hear from the leading scientist who has provided independent evidence on the risks of GM food.  We will have a series of events in Scotland, Wales and England during the GM Health Risk Week (2-8 September) where you'll hear a different perspective to what the media and the UK government are saying.

The GM Health Risk Week: an event near you!

David Cameron pledged £395 million from the UK Aid budget during the G8 forum to support private initiatives involved in spreading GM crops in Africa. This investment, under the guise of aid, will in fact lock small-scale farmers into dependency on corporate providers of seeds and chemical fertilisers, undermining any chance of defeating hunger. Farmers and civil society organisations across Africa oppose it.

The UK government should suspend its funding for research into GM crops. Instead it should support agricultural research focused on sustainable, organic and traditional seed propagation developed by small-scale farmers around the world.

The risks of GM food and crops to the food system and human health have been downplayed by the UK government and the media.

Join us to learn more about risks that GM poses to our food system.

I look forward to seeing you,

Knowledge without wisdom

The state of the world is definitive proof that the direction we have been pursuing is misguided. The world of materialism is the path to self destruction and yet it is almost impossible to escape this web into which we are born and in which 99.9% of us are entrapped. Without a great awakening we cannot escape the strands of this web. Knowledge is useless, even dangerous when seperated from wisdom. Those that control the levers of the world are sadly blinded by their ego, greed and lust for earthly power.

Each one of us must work as hard as we can to awaken their spirit. We must come together to show them the terrible error of their ways. We must demand change and we can best do that perhaps by changing ourselves and refusing to follow their road map to destruction.

To all who work so hard to show us the light of truth, bless you.

John F. Kennedy - Historic Speeches

President John Kennedy was the last true leader of the free world for which he paid the ultimate price. He foresaw the threat that corporate and military power posed to both democratic and individual freedom. He detested the idea of secret societies and saw them as repugnant in a free and open society.

He exposed the agenda of shadowy cabals:

"For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence--on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.

Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed."

No leader since has displayed a fraction of his courage or vision. No leader since has spoken up for the people as did President Kennedy.

Herewith the Historic speeches of a truly great leader and courageous man.

Architects & Engineers for 9/11 truth

It is clear that the evidence presented by over 1500 architects and engineers fundamentally contradicts the official 9/11 Commission Report casting doubt on the voracity and integrity of those involved. It is imperative that the government undertakes to launch an independent enquiry to examine the concerns of experts with regard to the collapse of the Twin Towers and WTC building 6. In the view of these experts the reasons given for the collapse of these three buildings could not account for the events that unfolded on live television on that infamous day.

To find out more please go to the following link:

Architects and Engineers for 9/11 truth

The more of us that support and sign the petition, the more likely the govenment will be forced to re-examine all the events of that day. The victims and their families around the world deserve the truth. We cannot accept anything less.

The long arm of the Council on Foreign Relations

"For a long time I felt that FDR had developed many thoughts and ideas that were his own to benefit this country, the USA. But, he didn't. Most of his thoughts, his political 'ammunition' as it were, were carefully manufactured for him in advance by the CFR / One World money group."

Curtis Dall wrote in his book, FDR: My Exploited Father-in-Law:

How to take control of the people!

The best way to take control of a people and to control them utterly is to take away a little of their freedom at a time, to erode rights by a thousand tiny and almost imperceptible reductions. In this way the people will not see those rights and freedoms being removed until past the point at which these changes cannot be reversed.


This quote is often attributed to Hitler but those who have tried to find the exact reference including myself, have failed to find any proof of this. Nevertheless, much truth is contained in these words and it is worth repeating so I will leave it here for the reader's consideration without attribution to any specific person.

The Media Is Responsible For Darkness

The media is responsible for painting the image of the world we carry around in our heads. This image is dark and entirely negative. Who is so oblivious that he or she cannot understand how damaging this is to the psyche of every human on the planet?

 We see the world in the image in which it is painted, a place of constant horror and yet the planet is a wondrous place where bright light shines everywhere, where amazing things are accomplished by ordinary people everyday, everywhere; where so many are trying to change the world for the better and yet the media almost completely ignores these inspiring stories. As a consequence our reality is entirely unbalanced and the world directly reflects our biased view of it. 

This is a crime against humanity, an abrogation of consciousness, morality, duty, intelligence and principle. How much further down the road to peace might we have been with a more positive mindset? How much less poverty, famine and avoidable disease might there have been had we focused our energies in those directions instead of war, rape, crime, corruption and so on?

There are those who profit from engineered chaos and destruction. Suffering is there passport to untold wealth and control and the media is a compliant tool in their horrendous ambition. Those within the media who wittingly or unwittingly propagate this distorted vision of the world must wake up and understand the key role and absolute duty they have to rectify this nightmarish imbalance in our perception of reality. They have a moral obligation to use their power constructively as do we all. Currently they are failing miserably in this respect. It is the sacred duty of everyone no matter who they are to ensure that  they play their part in making  our world better today than it was yesterday.

The Grand Deception

Club of Rome, The First Global  Revolution, 1991:

“In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up  with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages,  famine and the like would fit the bill (this is absolute proof that man made  global warming is a fabricationn)…. But in designating them as the enemy, we fall  into the trap of mistaking symptoms for causes. All these dangers are caused by  human intervention and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that  they can be overcome. The real enemy, then, is humanity itself.” 

I will let these cold blooded, arrogant and soulless words speak for themselves.

The Norway Spiral and weapons of mass destruction

This is the transcript of part of a DoD News Briefing with regard to then Secretary of Defence, William S. Cohen Dated April 28th 1997 at:

Conference on Terrorism, Weapons of Mass Destruction, and U.S. Strategy at the Georgia Center, Mahler Auditorium, University of Georgia, Athens, Ga.

Q: Let me ask you specifically about last week's scare here in Washington, and what we might have learned from how prepared we are to deal with that (inaudible), at B'nai Brith.

A: Well, it points out the nature of the threat. It turned out to be a false threat under the circumstances. But as we've learned in the intelligence community, we had something called -- and we have James Woolsey here to perhaps even address this question about phantom moles. The mere fear that there is a mole within an agency can set off a chain reaction and a hunt for that particular mole which can paralyze the agency for weeks and months and years even, in a search. The same thing is true about just the false scare of a threat of using some kind of a chemical weapon or a biological one. There are some reports, for example, that some countries have been trying to construct something like an Ebola Virus, and that would be a very dangerous phenomenon, to say the least. Alvin Toeffler has written about this in terms of some scientists in their laboratories trying to devise certain types of pathogens that would be ethnic specific so that they could just eliminate certain ethnic groups and races; and others are designing some sort of engineering, some sort of insects that can destroy specific crops. Others are engaging even in an eco- type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves.


The various and nefarious activities of some scientists in collaboration with unscrupulous inconcsient governments to produce weapons of mass destruction of many kinds is alarming but it is the last sentence of the above answer that is of most interest to me. These "others" Cohen refers to can only be countries possessing advanced technologies including the USA. We are talking about electro-magnetic wave technology here of one kind or another. This article on the Norway Spiral gives some idea of what this technology is capable of doing:-

In the hands of a ruthless cabal hellbent on controlling the world it could be absolutely devastating. Man-made earthquakes, Tsunamis and other extreme geological events could be disguised as "natural disasters" and used to annihilate large swathes of human population as part of a policy to de-populate the Earth. It could be used in any number of ways to wreak havoc on perceived enemies. In the wrong hands there is no doubting these technologies would be extremely dangerous for us and the planet.

Remember this conference took place in 1997. Is it coincidence that in recent years we have seen increasing incidents of extreme weather including Tsunamis, earthquakes leading to radioactive fallout from damaged nuclear power stations in Japan, melting snowcaps, floods, droughts volatile temperatures and so on all blamed on global warming as a result of human activity leading to increasing Co2 levels in the atmosphere? It might be but I would not bet my house on it and let's put the record straight. It is not human activity as such that is responsible.

The vast majority of humanity is locked into an economic system over which they have absolutely no direct control. The masses simply conform to the rules of the game because they have little choice. What is the alternative? The masses don't invent weapons of mass destruction but it is they that die from them. It is not the masses who build oil drilling platforms but they work on them. It is not the masses who get rich making gas guzzling motor cars that consume the oil generated from the wells but somebody does. It is not the masses who lobby politicians to block green technologies that endanger the interests of huge oil producers.

It is not the masses who produce the plastic beer can holders, bags and food containers that blight the planet and endanger wildlife but somebody does and gets rich doing it and so on. So who exactly is responsible for global warming because it is definitely not the masses many of whom are so poor they do not even have clean running water, let alone a motor car or mobile phone! On the contrary it is they who demand investment in greener technologies, an end to war and poverty but these demands fall on deaf ears and dim minds.

Who is taking who for a ride here? We are told about global warming but not told about HAARP technology or chemtrails. We are shown the destruction by "terrorists" of the Twin Towers, but not given adequate explanation with regard to countless anomalies that suggest that things were not as they seemed.

Thousands see and film supposed UFOs all over the world and yet governments make no comment. Scientists ignore it and mainstream media barely mentions it and certainly does not investigate it seriously. When one considers how many newspapers might be sold were mainstream papers to conduct such an investigation, this seems like a careless oversight at best or compliance at worst.

If UFOs are extraterrestrial it would be one of the most extraordinary events in history and yet it is simply brushed under the carpet as though this phenomena witnessed by thousands and plastered all over the internet in every country in the world, simply does not exist! It is so ridiculous, it is not credible. Why? How can one justify or explain this "denial" unless the truth is so devastating that it would destroy our belief in everything we have ever known, with all the consequences that might have for those in power? What other reason could possibly justify this bizarre head in the sand behaviour of authorities around the world? It's frankly incomprehensible.

So in short given these paradoxes what can you believe? Who can you trust? What is the truth?

Clearly you cannot trust the politicians. They tell you only what they want you to hear.

You cannot trust the scientists because they are clearly withholding information in collaboration with secretive governments. The irony is that without the collaboration of scientists and engineers, these all powerful governing groups would be as powerless as the ordinary man in the street. Scientists or at least some of them, have sold their soul and their independence to the establishment and betrayed humanity, the planet and themselves in the process.

You cannot trust the mainstream media. They are owned and manipulated by powerful and as recent events demonstrate, sometimes corrupt (phone hacking, illegal payments to police) commercial interests. They sell an illusion that is so negatively biased, the world is painted in a darkness that hides it's light. Every headline brings us doom and gloom generating a negativity that invades and pervades our daily lives from the day we are born to the day we die. No, we most certainly cannot trust the Rupert Murdochs of this world.

The politics of deception, distraction and division have stripped away our capacity to think straight let alone think for ourselves. Our capacity to think critically, to question and analyse information has been gradually dissipated by careful mind manipulation for so long now, we are virtual zombies addicted to computer games, social media sites, celebrity culture and political and religious dogmas.

We need to stop and claim our souls back from these twisted comptrollers. Nothing is as it seems it appears. We are living an illusion created for us by those whose motive is the selfish pursuit of power and personal wealth. Who are they? They are nobody, nothing, if we stop listening to them and start thinking for ourselves. Recognising that whatever you thought was truth, is a lie is in a way a liberating experience.

Switch off the news programs. Stop being taken in by all the celebrity nonsense. Stop buying the products that harm us and the planet. Start yelling at you political representatives. Hold them accountable. Demand transparency. Stop joining the armed forces. Start reaching out to your fellow beings across the world. We are not Jews, Arabs, Africans, Asians, Europeans, Catholics, Jews, Muslims, Protestants. We are humanity. We are fathers, mothers, sons and daughters each and everyone of us. We want the same things, bread on the table and to bring up our families in peace and friendship. We do not want war. We want an end to poverty, famine and preventable disease. We want universal education for all. Resolve these problems and we resolve most if not all the problems facing the planet. Indeed, there is no other way.

What wrong with swearing?

In some cultures as soon as someone loses his rag and starts using profanities, the person is regarded incapable of reasoned thinking and is considered a fool who is not worth listening to.

When people like Jonathan Ross started using profanities on television, they did it because they thought it was cool to swear on the BBC. It impressed the American celebrities who were not allowed to use the "F" word on U.S. channels. Look at me the anti-establshment rebel paid £6,000,000 pound a year from our licence money by the establishment, swearing inappropriately and often just to shock on TV. It was another step down in the slide into mediocrity, part of the dumbing down process that has been going on for years and no he is not worth listening to. Sorry! I'd rather listen to the sound of silence all day long.

Comedians do it all the time now because it still has a modicum of shock value and gets a cheap laugh but you never heard Ronnie Barker, Norman Wisdom, Tommy Cooper, Eric Morecombe, Les Dawson, Jimmy Tarbuck et al resort to profanities. They did not need to and unlike many comedians today who can't rise above their belts when looking for laughs, they were genuinely clever and funny.

Yes, there maybe moments when nothing but a crude profanity will do but they are few and far between. In general the replacement of adjectives or adverbs using the "F" word or worse, diminishes us and language in a very profound way and sets a poor example to children. Yes, I am as guilty as most of doing it but at least I know it's a cop out.

Liverpool Care Pathway

This so called Liverpool Care Pathway is a travesty of all that the NHS is supposed to stand for and makes a mockery of the word "care".

My mother died in January 2010 and I now realise that she was effectively put on this diabolical scheme without our knowing then, that this was what it was. We were led to believe that nothing more could be done although following a discussion at the request of the family with doctors, they affirmed that they were unable to diagnose the precise cause of her condition. They could only surmise that it was due to a mixture  of undefined causes due to old age. She was 85 and although she had leukaemia, we were told that many people lived normal lives with her condition with appropriate treatment and that it alone would not cause death.

Some weeks before she had had a fall in the garden but apart from bruising seemed none the worse for wear. A couple of days later she felt ill during the night and my father called an ambulance and she was admitted to hospital. 

She appeared to be responding well but under the influence of painkillers tried to get out of bed right in front of the nurses station to go to the toilet and fell, breaking her hip. She underwent surgery and again responded well. Unbelievably, a day or two later, whilst in a private ward at the Musgrove Hospital in Taunton and again heavily drugged, she attempted to get out of bed to go to the toilet and inevitably fell again, necessitating a second operation! 

Again she recovered remarkably well and three weeks later went home, managing to climb the stairs and getting around surprisingly well all things considered.

Some three weeks later she felt very ill and was readmitted to hospital and was never to leave. During the last seven to ten days, the family felt it was necessary to mount a 24/7 vigil at her bedside to ensure she was properly cared for. The best care came from agency nurses whose compassion, skill and dedication was notable by comparison to some of the permanent nurses.

My mother was a lovely, courageous and much loved lady. She was not given the opportunity to decide for herself whether or not she wanted to continue eating and drinking. A decision was made by the medical staff and meals ceased forthwith.

This is not care. This is politicians and doctors playing God and it is abhorrent and reprehensible. This is euthanasia in everything but name. When the life of the sick and elderly is treated with such cold blooded indifference it is no surprise that respect and standards of care suffer drastically as a consequence.

Ask yourself why the Liverpool Care Pathway was ever conceived of in the first place? What was wrong with NHS care that necessitated the introduction of this sinister scheme? Surely it was and is the duty of doctors and nurses to give the sick and dying the best care possible at all times anyway! Why do we need a special scheme? It is utterly ludicrous and totally unnecessary.

This scheme is a political and medical sham and whoever was responsible for it should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves. It should be buried unceremoniously and never be spoken of or practised again.

Needless to say, although the doctors could not make a clear diagnosis while my mother was in hospital, they had no apparent difficulty stating the cause of death on the death certificate! I never understood that.

Lastly, those who invented this scheme should remember that one day, they may well be faced by it's consequences. Starvation is extremely unpleasant and cruel. The poor patients however are in no condition to express their pain. This is not care. It's torture in the name of saving money and meeting targets. It's disgusting.

Letter to Rt. Honourable Oliver Letwin (UK Aid)

Dear Mr. Letwin,

I am of course pleased that Britain is setting some kind of example in tackling the gross injustice and imbalance between the very poorest and the very rich. We have children and grandchildren and the thought that any child faces famine, starvation and endemic suffering is frankly intolerable and a condemnation of every government in the world, all of whom could have and still should, do far more to resolve once and for all, this blight on us all.

There is no more serious problem in the world and it has ever been thus. We have had millennia to get to grips with this inhumanity and have failed abysmally and continue to do so. Resolving these fundamental issues of hunger, famine, poverty and universal education requires a much deeper sense of humanitarian values than is currently exhibited globally by politicians, bankers and business. Every level of society should be and must be engaged in finding solutions.

These solutions are absolutely critical for the entire future of mankind and our planet. Without them we cannot hope to resolve the problems of overpopulation which is placing such a strain on the World's resources. As we have seen in the industrialised world, the eradication of severe poverty has very significantly reduced the number of children per family in two or three generations. My grandmother was one of thirteen children. I am on of four and most families now have no more than two children.

Exceptional leadership is required to bring about a consensus amongst leaders everywhere that a complete re-orientation of direction and resources is obligatory. Military spending has got to be reduced across the globe and the resources transferred to fighting poverty. Unnecessary investment in white elephant prestige projects must be replaced by projects that will make a real difference to the lives of millions. Every corporation must contribute more to their local communities on whom they depend for labour and infrastructure. Capitalism must find it's conscience. If this is done bridges will be built around the world between nations and the need for big military spending rendered unnecessary as we breakdown that which divides us and unite in a common and worthy destiny. Old enmities will be replaced by new friendship and so on.

I am sure you understand all this perfectly well but so far those in power have failed to translate understanding into action. It is not enough to make empty political promises or gestures. Much, much more than that is needed. Will your government be the first in history to make a real difference?

Letter to the Rt. Hon. Jeremy Hunt - Secretary of State for Health

Dear Minister,

There are something's that are not for sale, one of which is healthcare. The prime objective of the NHS is CARE of the sick. The prime objective of private companies is profit pure and simple either by cutting costs, raising prices or compromising on quality or all three. The public are already fed up with the rip-off mentality of the now privately owned rail transport and utility companies. The food industry is equally guilty of serious negligence with regard to the health of consumers. Greedy banks along with complacent government have ruined the economy for everyone.

So as we can see privatisation is not the holy grail this government seems to believe it is. The government believes it can escape responsibility for it's own duty of care by handing it over to someone else, whom they can then blame if things go wrong. This is unacceptable. Healthcare is a social issue not a business enterprise.

The government must act with integrity to reform the standards of inpatient care and the efficacy of strong leadership on the wards based on the humanitarian principles that are the foundation of the NHS.

Outpatient services are generally excellent but at the present time there are many wonderful nurses and staff who are being badly let down by an uncaring ethos amongst some of their colleagues which then reflect on the service as a whole.

Your job as Minister is to make the NHS better, not offload your responsibility and work load to others whose main empathy is with money, not healthcare!

The Rise of Authoritarianism And The Theft Of Democracy

February 11, 2013 at 4:57 pm

There was a time when the state was at the service of it’s employers, the people. It realised very quickly that it could use the tools of state to entrench themselves in power rather than use them for the betterment of society as a whole. They decided that government was not of the people but above and apart from the people and could be used not for the people but to control the people; by controlling financial markets, media outlets, dumbing down education, and brainwashing the police and military into believing their job was to protect the interests of the powerful against the masses. Hence the CCTV cameras, mobile spying units, data mining of social media sites for personal information, aggressive policing and menacing uniforms designed to instill fear and so on.

Brick by brick our democratic rights are being dismantled by stealth through deceit, distraction and division thus diminishing our power to decide our own future destiny. The state has stolen that power from the people and enhanced it’s own power thanks to the engineered apathy of the population.

However, there is a line in the sand as we have seen in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Syria, Greece, Spain and others on the rise, where people have decided to re-impose their will on the political establishment and show them where real power really resides. When the people rise the establishment has no choice but to run for cover and that is the ultimate reality that those who have stolen our power will have to confront. The state must be reminded of their subservience to the will of the people, that it is of the people and for the people.

In the meantime we must stop complying with the will of the state. Turn off the propaganda, get on with our own lives in our own way, stop jumping every time the state says jump, get out in the streets and protest and make our political representatives jump when we say so. Let them know we will be heard and they will listen.

Last week MPs revived the corpse of the "secret justice" act.

When justice is carried out in secret, the very concept of justice is lost. At the same time the vote on gay marriage was taking place the government cynically slipped through a vote on this iniquitous bill. The consequences of this nasty piece of legislature seriously undermine the core principles of justice and accountability of the state to the people who elect them to represent their interests, not the interests of those in power.

Any cessation of power to the state weakens the voice of the people because the state now considers itself above and separate from the people. This is contrary to the principles of democracy where the state machinery is supposed to be at the service of the people. The military and police are there to serve and protect the people, not the interests of those in power who have forgotten that they are not above but of the people. Likewise, the justice system is there to serve all the constituent parts of society, not the interests of the powerful.

The same is true of all government services be it NHS, education, fire, revenue and so on. The government's job is to manage these services on behalf of society, i.e. you and me. They have no right or mandate to use these institutions to benefit or entrench their own power or authority. The real authority is us, the people and government is servant to and beholden, to us.

These are the foundations of a democratic state and they must be protected and underpinned by an irrevocable constitution and a strong and independent justice system that protects the interests of the people against abuse of power by our state.

What are NORAD exercises over American cities really about?

What is wrong with this announcement? According to this there have been 5000 threats to US air space since 2001! That equates to 417 per annum, more than one a day! By whom? By what? What action was taken? Was anyone arrested, captured or killed? Where is the evidence? Why were these threats not reported by mainstream media? Why are they and the American people being kept in the dark? This is ridiculous. This stuff is just not credible. Something else is going on here and I doubt it has much to do with daily air threats! 5000 is a nice round number too, don't you think?

The announcement:

"North American Aerospace Defense Command will be training over the area (Washington) early Thursday morning.

The exercise, beginning after midnight Thursday, will include Civil Air Patrol aircraft and a U.S. Coast Guard Dolphin helicopter.

NORAD has been conducting these training flights in the United States and Canada as part of Operation Noble Eagle since the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.

Since then, there have been more than 5,000 potential air threats in the U.S. Officials may postpone or cancel training in inclement weather."

End announcement.

Interesting that these exercise may be postponed during inclement weather. Presumably terrorists don't attack in inclement weather. It's the same principle as doctors taking the week-end off on mass in NHS hospitals because people only get sick Monday to Friday!

Sandy Hook massacre

Official story spins out of control. Lots of anomalies and questions but no apparent answers. Read this article for yourselves.

The EU - to be or not to be!

Very well argued article by Peter Sutherland on Social Europe. However, Cameron's speech reflects the realities of Britain's long standing unease with the EU Project, not least the fact that it is and has been imposed on all the people of Europe by stealth rather than the instruments of true democracy. One suspects that the British are more sensitive to this than perhaps some other nations. Some of the newer members are not long freed from the chains of Russian enslavement in the old USSR and to them anything may appear to be an improvement on that, even a less than transparent politically engineered union.

The British people are by nature a fiercely independent island people who do not take kindly to having their freedom and sovereignty stolen from under their noses, by a self appointed calculating band of faceless, elitist bureaucrats and rightly so.

Since when was political union a pre-requisite for free and open trade? This is the lie we are being sold and whilst this may be acceptable, even desirable, to a minority group of self interested businessmen doing very nicely thank you, it is wholly unacceptable to many. Let us get one thing clear right here and now. These businessmen represent a tiny fraction of the UK population. Since when did the interests of a small group of self-interested businessmen override that of the majority in a democracy? Could that be since Brussels decided to redefine the rules of democracy for their own benefit? You answer the question.

The right to decide the fate of this nation is the right of every citizen not just that of the few who are beniffitng and thus more than happy to sign up to anything that puts more euros into their already bulging pockets. What is more, it would be undemocratic of them not to acknowledge that but we should not hold our breath. The will of the majority must prevail or democracy means nothing and that suits Brussels down to the ground. We know it and they know we know it and that is why they may well be happy to be rid of us and we happy to leave.

Britain has one other very important thing going for it which no other European country has and that is our membership of the wonderfully diverse Commonwealth; whose potential for increased trade and co-operation remains largely untapped. Imagine what might be done within this organisation if we applied some radical new thinking to our trading relations with them. We could jointly create a whole new way of conducting business within this community which would shine like a beacon of light by comparison to the dimly lit candle of introverted EU protectionism, control freakery and misguided and ill-perceived perceptions of self interest.

We could create a model of free trade based on level playing fields and mutually beneficial joint ventures in which consuming and producing nations freely invest in each other's economies and reap the benefits mutually. We could catalyse economic growth in a way that has never been done before and make a real impact on the inequities of poverty, hunger and lack of accessibility to education at the same time. There would be no more need for costly ineffective aid programs that create dependence in recipient countries and patronage in donor countries. This is iniquitous.

We could all grow up and flourish together. This is the vision the British people should flock to embrace. This is the path of light. The EU is a convoluted web of introversion controlled by the few for the few. Britains should find the courage to venture out to new exciting frontiers that encompass a whole new world and be there at the forefront. That is a vision worth striving for.

Letter to Mr. Cameron - Davos 2013

There are many more problems to be resolved before hunger can be eradicated than those listed in the IF campaign. First and foremost is the problem of endemic corruption in some developing countries. Until governments themselves recognise their own responsibility to tackle poverty in their own countries, very little can or will be achieved.

It is frankly a disgrace that those in power focus more on enriching themselves and expanding the trappings of power than on programs to alleviate the unjust suffering of so many in their societies. These leaders have a unique opportunity to create historic legacies for themselves by raising the living standards and education of the poorest in their countries but too often use their positions to enrich themselves instead.

How can India justify spending tens or hundreds of billions on a space program whilst millions go hungry? How can Mugabe justify building himself an extravagant palace whilst his people die of famine and so on?

Why is it that these and all leaders cannot comprehend that leading their societies to a higher and better place is the best way to enure their own continuance in positions of authority?

As important is the need for the removal of unfair tariffs on value added products from developing countries into trading blocks such as the EU. We need to create a level playing field for international trade and the best way to do this is to create new partnerships based on mutually beneficial interests with countries who grow the produce we all consume. This will require a completely new understanding of the meaning and value of co-operation between trading nations as well as a restructuring and standardisation of import/export tax codes for all countries enabling a fairer distribution of benefits between all parties.

To achieve this, importing and exporting nations will need to enter a new era of meaningful joint venture in which all parties can benefit mutually from the profits that are jointly generated. This will lead to a rapid expansion of trade worldwide and therefore higher tax revenues internationally providing the means to tackle poverty more effectively and provide universal education to those who still have little or no access to this basic essential human right.

Top Secret America

If you are concerned about the growing power of corrupt government and diminishing individual freedom you must make yourself aware of this investigation carried out by the Washington Post.

Here you will find duplicity of gargantuan proportions, deceit and double deceit, incompetence on a massive scale or deliberate misdirection in order to cover up secret agendas from the tax paying citizens who are financing it and the authorities who are theoretically responsible for managing and monitoring them.

You will find agencies within agencies hiding information from each other. Nobody it seems has a handle on the whole picture just fragments of it. It seems highly unlikely that the President has a handle on what is being done and the American people are being kept largely in the dark by the agencies who are supposedly there to serve their best interests; but how can anyone judge, if it is all done in secret behind closed doors.

The American people have a right to know what their tax dollars are financing. They have the right to know what purpose FEMA fusion centres serve. How many are there? What exactly do they do? They have the right to know why huge underground bunkers are being constructed, how many, where, at what cost and what is their capacity and why? They have the right to know why residential camps surrounded by double barbed wire perimeter fences and inward facing razor wire are being built in different locations around the country. How many? What is the capacity of these camps and why? They have the right to know the truth about the hundreds, possibly thousands of UFO sightings witnessed by countless people in the U.S. and around the world.

They have the right to know what is going on with HAARP technology, chemtrails, weather control and anything else that may have either negative or positive effects. They have the right to have all the current feedback related to GM crops. Are they harming us or the wild life? What impact are they having on the environment and disease? All these things are done in secret. Why? What is so sensitive about them that these activities must be kept secret?

How can any society trust a government that behaves covertly on so much that affects the lives and freedoms of so many? It cannot. Where is the justification for secrecy and how can anyone know even if there is one, if everything is cloaked in secrecy? Where is the evidence that tax dollars are being spent wisely for the benefit or detriment of citizens? Surely, if these projects were so beneficial to the American people, the President would be shouting these achievements from the roof tops! Do you hear him? I don't, nobody does.

Killing the mind and destroying the spirit

Do you recognise these mind control techniques? They are being used on all of us, all the time by an unscrupulous elite who seek to control us and diminish our ability to think for ourselves or question their actions.

It is happening in the United States and Europe. It has been used by totalitarian states to control and quell opposition since time began. It is now being used in democratic states for the same purpose. The great tragedy of this is the lost potential of the human race. We should have and could have resolved the seemingly insoluable abominations of poverty, famine and over-population had we focused the massive capacity of our combined braincells on these seemingly intrangiscent moral dilemnas. We could have and should have by now ensured that every child had a good education and we should have dramatically diminished the risk of war.

Instead our minds are focused on mind numbing computer games, social media sites, media output focusing on the salacious and negative aspects of human existence, fashion and celebrity culture and the list goes on and on. In the meantime the self-elected elite get on with their self serving schemes building empires and profiting from the choas they engineer and they do it unnoticed and largely unopposed.

The European Superstate is being imposed on the people of Europe without their consent using fallacious economic arguments born out of incompetence and questionable ideology. Chaos is created, fear engendered until such time as the agenda of this misguided elite can be forced through as being the only possible choice. No alternatives are offered, no discussion initiated, no thought encouraged. It's fait accompli!

Everyday wonderful people around the world do incredible things but it never makes the news. Good news raises hope, inspires and raises our spirit. It frees us from the cloud of negativity in which we are held captive by those who prefer we remain there. They divide, distract and deceive us to achieve their dubious and often immoral objectives.

The media focuses your attention on war, crime, accidents, death and destruction until you come to believe the picture they draw reflects the true reality when in truth it is only one side of the coin. How many times have you heard the comment, "what a terrible world"? Every day someone says it because that is the picture that has been deliberately painted to deceive us.

One of the central planks of this control is fear. Orchestrate chaos and the people will beg for order, the order "they" have already pre-determined will be imposed. Aligned to a corrupt principle of divide and rule and the dynamics for conflict are in place. Conflict means arms sales and an excuse to manipulate world affairs in accordance with their nefarious designs when the central principle of humanity should be to unite, share and build bridges of understanding, mutual respect and co-operation.

The opposite is the reality and this is the crime perpetrated against humanity by so called leaders for centuries and it is gathering ever more momentum with the advances in technology that allow for levels of control and manipulation previously unavailable. History shows that unless we take a more enlightened path the horrors of the past will continue to be the nightmares of the future.

Do we want to be reduced to nothing more than an apathetic, unthinking, unquestioning zombies living joyless uninspired lives following the herd around, doing what we are told and told what to think. If not, we need to start opening our minds before they have been closed down altogether.
