The Intercept Takes A Good Look At Tony Blair’s Iraq Role In Recent Terrorist Attacks

British Intelligence Warned Tony Blair of Manchester-Like Terrorism if the West Invaded Iraq

 

“…But when Blair does speak, we can be certain he won’t mention one key fact: Before the 2003 invasion of Iraq led by the U.S. and U.K., he was forcefully and repeatedly warned by Britain’s intelligence services that it would lead to exactly this type of terrorist attack — and he concealed these warnings from the British people, instead claiming the war would reduce the risk of terrorism…

Global Research: All Power to the Banks! The Winners-Take-All Regime of Emmanuel Macron

By Diana Johnstone, Global Research, May 21, 2017, Region: Theme:


A ghost of the past was the real winner of the French presidential election. Emmanuel Macron won only because a majority felt they had to vote against the ghost of “fascism” allegedly embodied by his opponent, Marine Le Pen.  Whether out of panic or out of the need to feel respectable, the French voted two to one in favor of a man whose program most of them either ignored or disliked.  Now they are stuck with him for five years.

If people had voted on the issues, the majority would never have elected a man representing the trans-Atlantic elite totally committed to “globalization”, using whatever is left of the power of national governments to weaken them still further, turning over decision-making to “the markets” – that is, to international capital, managed by the major banks and financial institutions, notably those located in the United States, such as Goldman-Sachs.

Lack Of Unambiguous commitment to departing the EU Madhouse frustrating Labour Leave Campaign

Ed Rennie, Labour Leave LabourLeave_150

As you can imagine at Labour Leave HQ to say we are frustrated with the lack of unambiguous commitment to departing the EU from the current leadership of our party would be an understatement. This is without mentioning the rather ludicrous statements from some MPs such as Chuka Umunna, Heidi Alexander, Chris Bryant and oh Owen Smith (remember him?) who seem apparently oblivious that formally leaving the EU but retaining membership of the Single Market and Customs Union is quite patently the worst of both worlds.

Deputy Editor, BrexitCentral, @darrengrimes_

There’s a three-pronged Cabinet attack on Brexit in the papers this morning. Theresa May and David Davis have given punchy interviews to two of the Sunday papers: Theresa May tells the Sunday Telegraph that Brussels must pay its own Brexit bill of billions of pounds for Britain’s share of the European Investment Bank and other joint projects, while Brexit Secretary David Davis uses a Sunday Times interview to warn the other 27 EU member states that they must moderate their demands for cash or face the UK walking away from the negotiating table altogether. Meanwhile, one of the Cabinet’s most pro-European voices, Damian Green, urges fellow former Remain voters to support Theresa May in this morning’s Observer.

Ed – The EU’s spending program: delusional, idiotic, wasteful and for 20 years and counting not fully accounted for,  will have to be cut when the UK leaves. The penny, or cent, has dropped in the German Chancellery. Bully boy statements from the EU, French and German political classes are showing the EU’s true dictatorial nature. Other EU states are watching ‘the treatment’ and drawing their own concusions about the methods soon to be used on them.

Memo To PM May: Re Dementia Tax

SAVEnhsSimple demographics mean we need to find a way to pay for our growing elderly populations care, but how? Conservative “dementia tax” is not the answer. Young and old move forward into the future together as one, therefore we should look after eachother as individuals and collectively as society renews itself from generation to generation.

So what do we do? We should not be putting our pensioners, or long term ill,  out on the ice to be eaten by polar bears Eskimo style when they are no longer contributing and need long term care. They participated in and gave to society during their lives and deserve both respect and help from the rest when mother nature takes its toll.
