Former MI5 director becomes the latest ex-spy chief to back encrypted messaging

Jonathan Evans, a former head of MI5, has pledged his support for encrypted messaging in an interview with the BBC.

He told Radio 4’s Today Programme this morning that the technology is a critical tool in maintaining the country’s cyber security.

While acknowledging that encryption had made it difficult for spies to access messages between extremists, he added:

I’m not personally one of those who thinks we should weaken encryption because I think there is a parallel issue, which is cyber security more broadly.

While understandably there is a very acute concern about counter-terrorism, it is not the only threat that we face. The way in which cyberspace is being used by criminals and by governments is a potential threat to the UK’s interests more widely.

‘True’ £660m weekly cost of Britain’s EU membership

THE true cost to Britain of being in the EU has been £660million a week since 2010, a think tank says.

This includes more than £80billion lost to the Treasury after the European Court of Justice forced tax rebates to multinationals and £50billion in Eurozone bailout obligations.

In membership fees alone, after the rebate has been returned Britain has paid out £70.6billion in fees.

But the Bruges Groups says our real financial commitment is £275.08billion.

Over seven years that is £34.3billion a year, or £661,260,000 a week.

UK AT WAR? ‘Britain will be dragged in to any war with Kim Jong-un’s North Korea’

The UK would most likely join the US in fighting the regime if North Korea started a war, Trevor Taylor, professorial research fellow in defence management at the highly-respected Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) think tank, said.

He said if a war in the region started due to North Korean aggression then the UK would be “obliged” to support.

However, if the US started it, then the UK would be unlikely to join.

Lord Lawson was right to condemn Al Gore's film, says TIM NEWARK

Following Lord Lawson’s Radio 4 interview on the Today programme, the Green Party co-leader Jonathan Bartley condemned the BBC for giving any airtime to the former chancellor, who now heads the Global Warming Policy Foundation.

The Green Party claimed it was “false balance” even though Lawson was given half the time allowed to former US vice-president Al Gore to plug the sequel to his climate change propaganda movie An Inconvenient Truth.

Scientist and broadcaster Jim al-Khalili went further, saying: “There should be no debate any more about climate change.”

No debate at all? That sounds a very extreme response to Lawson’s reasonable comments. There should always be debate about policies that are costing every one of us hundreds of pounds every year in extra taxes on our fuel bills to subsidise a renewable energy industry that may well have no effect on climate change over the next century.

That is the real Inconvenient Truth.

It's been revealed the UK has sold military equipment worth millions to Venezuela since 2008, despite Foreign Office "concern" about human rights in the country.

"NONE OF IT WAS TRUE": 103 YEARS LATER, THE FT ADMITS IT LIED AND COLLUDED WITH THE BANK OF ENGLAND

When one strips away the lies about central banks' "inflation and employment" mandates and focuses on what they really do - which is to keep asset prices artificially supported and volatility suppressed - the motive behind virtually every central bank act becomes readily apparent: preserve (and increase, if possible) confidence in the market and economy, while saying anything and everything that helps achieve this, or in other words, lie but don't get caught.
Today, thanks to the FT, we have proof of precisely this, in what may be the first recorded instance of a central bank openly lying in an attempt to preserve market stability... and getting caught.

On Tuesday, the Bank of England admitted that the UK government failed to find enough investors to fully cover its its 1914 War Loan, and was forced to turn to the central bank to help plug a deficit of more than £100m in the fundraising. However, it did so only after it lied to the public that the bond was oversubscribed:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Lies by the financial community never end, because they are engineered to "paper over" a system so delicate and fragile that complete economic collapse is only a minor hiccup away, most of the time.

US Sanctions — a Looney Tunes Bad Remake

By F. William Engdahl
5 Aug 2017

The ever-so-wise members of the Congress of the United States have just passed one of the most bizarre pieces of legislation in US history. Unilaterally, it makes illegal and severely punishable investments by European companies in international energy projects where Russia is involved. But it does far more. Unlike earlier US sanctions acts, the EU countries were not even consulted on the new act. It may well be that the bill, HR-3364: Countering Americas Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (sic) and its Senate counterpart will mark the irreversible decline of the United States as a global power and forge new ties between Russia, China, Iran and, yes, the major states of the EU including Germany .

British govt ‘squandering’ £1.6bn on ‘futile’ war on drugs

The audit, which has gone largely unnoticed, was published last month.

As the government released details of its new drug strategy, it also put out its evaluation of how the 2010-2016 plan went – hidden at the bottom of the page.

The report was not mentioned by any minister in a Home Office press release, or in the parliamentary debate the following week, or in any media coverage until the Times picked it up on Tuesday.

The report says the strategy to reduce illicit and harmful drug use, launched by Theresa May when she was home secretary, has largely failed.

Despite extensive resources being used to tackle drug use, consumption had remained stable since 2010, it said.

Britain needs a counter-radicalization program for its politicians, says terrorism expert

Charlie Bird, who spent time attached to the military in Iraq during the 2003 invasion, wrote on the Cable website that a counter-extremism program to monitor politicians might be worth considering.

...

The Prevent scheme is a government-led initiative to identify potential extremists in educational establishments and channel them into de-radicalization programs.

It is supported by McCarthy-style legislation which imposes a legal duty on educators to report their students.

“Should there be a similar statutory obligation on MPs, their spouses, partners, special advisers and friends?” asked Bird.

“Should they be obligated to report politicians who lean towards dangerous ideas, individuals and causes that could lead the country into wars that provoke even more terrorism and terrorist sympathizers?”

BAE, BRITAIN’S LARGEST ARMS MAKER, POSTS RECORD PROFITS

Britain’s largest defense firm has made $733 m in six months, and expects further growth, in results posted weeks after surviving a High Court challenge to its multi-billion-dollar arms deals with Saudi Arabia.

BAE Systems lauded the sale of Typhoon jets to Oman and noted its court victory over anti-arms trade campaigners in the results, saying net profits soared 36 percent to £555 m ($733 m) in the six months to the end of June, compared with £408 m a year earlier.

It said profits were boosted by UK government defense spending and a weak pound following Britain’s decision to leave the European Union. Sales forged almost 10 percent higher to stand at £9.565 bn.

Charles Woodburn, BAE’s chief executive, said: “BAE Systems’ performance in the first half was consistent with our expectations and guidance for the year.

“We have a sound platform for medium-term growth underpinned by a clear and consistent strategy.

BBC accused of ‘normalizing’ Islamic burqa in ‘propaganda’ video

Social media users have accused the BBC of “blatant propaganda” after the state broadcaster published a YouTube video featuring burqa-clad women addressing common questions about the full-face veil.

After the video, entitled ‘Things Not To Say To Someone Who Wears a Burqa’, was published on the BBC Three YouTube channel, the broadcaster received a volley of accusations, with users branding it a leftist propaganda machine perpetuating a “regressive” ideology.

Political commentator Julie Lenarz was among those who took to Twitter to brand the BBC’s attempt to normalize burqas and niqabs “abhorrent.”

Galloway: ‘Law is an ass’ for blocking Iraq War prosecution of Tony Blair

The High Court ruling that Tony Blair cannot be prosecuted for taking Britain into the Iraq War gives immunity to any “two-bit hustler” in power in Britain and proves the “law is an ass,” Respect Party leader George Galloway said.

On Monday, Britain’s High Court dismissed an application for a judicial review to overturn a 2006 ruling by the House of Lords that there is no such crime as the “crime of aggression” under English law.

'Real people' don’t care if apps keep messages private, says Rudd

"Real people" aren't really interested in security features that stop the government and criminals reading their messages, according to Home Secretary Amber Rudd.

The Government should be allowed to look at people's messages and break through the security that keeps them hidden, she has written.

Most people won't be concerned about that because they primarily use apps like WhatsApp and iMessage for their "features", she writes, and not because of the technology they incorporate to keep messages safe.

Attempt To Prosecute Tony Blair Over Iraq War Blocked By High Court

Britain’s High Court has blocked a bid by an Iraqi general to bring a private prosecution against Tony Blair over the war he launched in Iraq while prime minister.

General Abdul Wahed Shannan Al Rabbat accused the former Labour leader of committing a ‘crime of aggression’ by invading Iraq in 2003 to overthrow former President Saddam Hussein.

Iraq War: Bid to prosecute Tony Blair rejected by High Court

Former Iraqi general Abdul Wahed Shannan Al Rabbat alleged the former prime minister committed "the crime of aggression" by invading Iraq in 2003.
No such crime exists in England and Wales and the court ruled there was "no prospect" of the case succeeding.

The general had wanted to prosecute Mr Blair, ex-Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, and ex-Attorney General Lord Goldsmith.

Last year, Westminster Magistrates' Court had turned down Mr Al Rabbat's bid to bring private prosecution.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. Al Rabbat should have been better schooled in British law, so that he could bring Tony Blair to the docket on a chargeable offence, under British Law; so unfortunately, because Mr. Al Rabbat did not do that, Phony Tony Blair gets to slip away from the war crimes charges he should be facing yet again.

Zion Declares War on British Jazz

Back in the day, my detractors at least attempted to encounter my arguments and debate me. They didn’t get too far. Since the publication of my new book Being in Time: a Post-Political Manifesto, they have changed their tactics: they insist on obliterating my international jazz career.

Earlier today, a book shop in Oxford that regularly hosts my concerts posted the attached letter (see below) to my Facebook page. The Oxford venue received the letter from the ultra-Zionist Campaign Against Antisemitsm (CAA). The CAA letter is blatantly and intentionally defamatory and duplicitous.

The CAA and other Zionist institutions have been busy subjecting every British jazz venue that features my music to intense harassment. It is no secret that Zionism has been destroying Palestine, its people and its culture for decades. However, eradicating British culture and British jazz in particular may be taking this carnage one step too far.

142 people fell ill from fecal contaminated food in UK Muslim restaurant

Last November, I first posted about the disgusting toilet habit of Muslims in “Muslim washes his anus at public drinking fountain in Italy”.

But it’s one thing for Muslims to use their (left) hands, instead of toilet paper, to “clean” their butts after defecating. It’s another thing entirely when Muslim restaurant employees do that and then contaminate food and drinks that they serve to the public, which I chronicled in two subsequent posts:

Muslim chef contaminates kitchen with feces by wiping his butt with his hand, in accordance with Islamic toiletry code

Fecal bacteria found in cold drinks of UK’s top coffee chains

Here’s more evidence that this disgusting Muslim practice is a public health hazard.

This Morning guest reveals antidepressants triggered psychosis and scary hallucinations

“I felt really upset about selling the marital home,” said Katinka. “I felt very guilty. It was then that I had sleepless nights.

“I went to a private psychiatrist who gave me an antidepressant.”

“I was looking for a sleeping tablet. I was already in a bit of a state by the time I went to see her. It happened very quickly. I am one of those people who have a severe reaction to the pills.”

Katinka said the pills gave her an ‘inner anguish’ and put her in a trance like state.

“I lost the powers of speech,” she said. “I was in a real state, almost in a trance. Two days later I was acutely psychotic.

“Suddenly I thought nothing mattered.”

Katinka told Ruth and Eamonn that her state got so bad she thought she had killed her children and even attacked herself with a knife.

Hate plc: UK’s taxpayer-funded hate-crime industry

In March 2016 the British government pledged £13.4 million to the Community Security Trust (CST), a Jewish body that is committed to fighting hatred against one group only. One would expect that, with all that money, the CST would do its job and curb anti Semitism. But the miracle is that the opposite has occurred. Just two weeks later, according to the CST’s statistics, anti Semitism went through the roof...

This conclusion to be drawn from the CST’s statistics is that the more public money is allocated to fight anti Semitism, the more anti Semitic the Britons become.

If this is the case, the cure for British anti Semitism may be within reach:  to fight anti Semitism, deprive the CST and similar organisations of taxpayers’ money! >>

A mere few days after the British government vowed to wire millions of pounds to the CST, the number of ‘anti Semitic incidents’ rose by 30% to over 100 incidents a month.

If this is the case, the cure for British anti Semitism may be within reach – to fight anti Semitism, deprive the CST and similar organisations of taxpayers’ money!

'Ignore the LOONY-LEFT’S crackpot idea for 100 per cent inheritance tax', expert warns

Amid a wave of criticism leveled at the idea of stopping relatives passing on their wealth to their offspring, John O’Connell, the Chief Executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, has spoken out against the “unfair and immoral” tax.

Mr O’Connell told Express.co.uk: "This is just yet another crackpot policy idea from the loony-left and should be flat out ignored.

“Inheritance tax is already an unfair and immoral double tax, that hits families at the worst possible time.

“For many hard-working ordinary people, building a legacy for their children and grandchildren is a key reason they get up to go to work every day, but on too many occasions that legacy disappears when the taxman comes knocking at their door."

Shocking new evidence could overturn Northern Ireland ruling that became an international blueprint for torture

British forces in Northern Ireland used waterboarding and electric shock treatment on detainees during the 1970s, newly uncovered files show.

The documents were revealed at an event in London to mark the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture on 26 June, hosted by Matrix Chambers, along with the Pat Finucane Centre, the Committee on the Administration of Justice (CAJ) and Amnesty International.
