TORIES LOOK IN MIRRORS update


and what do you see?

UK is the second largest arms dealer in the world. The largest is the USA. No wonder these two stick together! 



“You are the terrorists.

“You attack other countries on an obscure raft of lies

“You occupy, subjugate, rob and ruin them.

“You bomb civilians with our air force and with guided missiles.

“You sell arms to totalitarians.

“You fund the military of dictators.

“Its way past time that you recognized our own behaviour, stopping abruptly and begged forgiveness, paid for our crimes and declare peace.

“Not a chance of course.

“Instead you’ll make our poor pay for a new generation of nuclear weapons to terrorise other human beings with the threat of sudden mass destruction.

“See the extremist in the mirror.”
A summary of very true words copied from Twitter with some changes. Hopefully the author does not mind but the summoning up so very true, it was worthwhile to spread it.

Every ordinary man and women would agree with it but the politicians who are never at the spot of bombing and destruction. They are safely away, living a life of luxury, playing armchair generals and couldn’t care less how many innocent lives get destroyed as long it is profitable for them. 

PM May has sold arms to
£4,8m Afghanistan
£7,5m Colombia
£0,9m Burma
£1,3m Uzbekistan
£124m Iraq
£4,4m Turkmenistan
£135,000 Syria
£26m Pakistan
£1m Zimbabwe
£155m Israel
£335m China
£266m Russia
£240m Turkey
£1.6m Somalia
£1.2m South Sudan
£4b South Africa

Altogether arms deals were made to 22 out of 30 most repressive regimes
USA are masters of ruin and destruction with a record of 34 countries illegally invaded since the 50s with the UK supporting most of them.

If that isn’t war crime and terrorism, what is? 

The other point, where is the money going to with all these billions of arms deals, austerity, welfare cuts, NHS and schools cuts, homelessness because people can't pay the rent any more and most of them are working people?

The National debts has increased to £1,8trillon despite off and is the highest for 67 years. What is really going on?

Somebody must be siphoning off by the billions of pounds.

The most dedicated Tory could not vote for them and see the country and its people going down. What happened at GE2017? My opinion is that the result was half of it a fiddle somewhere; after all the deprivations imposed for the last six years.

CITY CHANGES RULES FOR $2TRN SAUDI FLOAT





City of London will disgrace and shame itself by changing its rules purely to tempt a controversial float of Saudi Aramco state-controlled oil business.

It shows and proves to what extent the government and City bow down to oblige the wishes of Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia plans to float 5 percent of Aramco’s shares either in London or New York.

The City, so far, strict rules were refusal “premium listing” unless a 25 per cent of the stock is sold.

Financial Conduct Authorities proposed a “new premium listing category for sovereign controlled companies” which would cancel the previous rule. An authority which also does not speak much of its principals

Watchdog said: “aims to enable companies which may (be) the subject of major privatisation transactions to choose the higher standards of premium listing”.

The FCA denies the intention to smoothen the way for Saudis’ float only but could not name another company.

Saudi Aramco is one of the most secretive companies in the world and a short consultation process will last till October. The float is planned for 2018 and would be worth £77billion plus assuming a few arms’ deals.

Saudi Arabia insists on a “premium listing” only; New York has no restriction. 

The float would be a huge benefit for banks, PR advisers and lawyers and the outcome of the decision does not need guessing.

CONSUMER CREDIT REDUCED




Consumer credit will not be that easily available over the next three months. This will add a further burden on households and eventually reduce buying and economy.

Bank’s latest credit conditions survey’s report showed a double-digit growth of personal loans and credit card debt during the past year.

Bank of England Governor Mark Carney wants banks to put aside more funds to support lending in the event of a slowdown during rising inflation.

The survey also points out that banks are expecting to tighten credit scoring criteria during the following quarter.

The survey also showed an increasing demand for loans from small and medium-sized business which had not been the case during the last year.

Larger companies are avoiding further loans.

Is it all a sign of the ship going down despite of all the Government’s cut-backs and promises it is all for the sake of reducing the deficit?

Well one thing for sure the deficit has not reduced; the opposite has happened and shows an increase of horrendous proportion and is now at the highest level for 67 years. The National Debt is £1.8trillion.

However, the Government or PM May will not change course and add another £12bn Welfare cuts on top of already poor -, disabled - and even working people having to rely on food banks.

The state of this country and its people is incredible being the 6th richest in the world being turned back to Victorian time with no social welfare and NHS which is sold out to USA.

EX CHIEF OF ULSTER VOLUNTEER FORCE



Gary Haggart used to be Chief of Ulster Volunteer Force and turned now Supergrass. He pleaded guilty to 200 terror offences and five murders at Belfast Crown Court.

This is to say and prove that the Ulster Volunteer Force done just as many crimes as the IRA. The British press kept reporting the terrible deeds of the IRA and very rarely the UVF’s crimes. Yet, according to other reports the UVF done some of the worst secretarial crimes in the Shankhill area, Belfast. It is a Catholic area while Northern Ireland is Protestant. Nobody was more fanatic and spew more hatred than Ref Ian Paisley. 

Gary Haggart’s crimes were committed over a period of 16 years from 1991 to 2007 and even continued for a further nine years after the Good Friday peace agreement. This also confirms another report about crimes are still committed despite the peace agreement which drastically reduced confrontations but has not stopped it altogether.

Adding to his list, he admitted further five attempted murders, with police amongst his intended victim, 23 counts of conspiracy to murder, directing terrorism. He’s belonging to a proscribed organisation assisting people to attempt murder fellow UVF terror chief and police informer Mark Haddock.

Haggart admitted responsibility for 304 minor offences.

The list of murders is John Harbinson, 39, Sean McParland, 55, builders Garry Convie, 24, Sean McDermott, 37, and Eamon Fox, 44.

Haggart, 45, expects a heavily reduced sentence for having turned Supergrass.

The long-time police informer is in protective custody and will give evidence against fellow terrorists.

Eamon’s son Ciaran Fox broke down outside court. He said: “It’s hard sitting in a courtroom watching a guy admitting to murdering your father.

“Police knew that my father and Gary Convie were both going to be murdered and they sat back and let it happen. That’s hard to swallow. I don’t care about the UVF, they’ll meet their maker some day.

“The police, the people who were in authority to protect and serve. They didn’t protect my family.”

Haggart supposed to have made accusations against 14 fellow loyalists, including murder.

His list covers aiding and abetting murder, kidnap, hijack, false imprisonment, arson, intimidation and conspiracy to riot. Is there still anything he couldn’t have done? It is certainly a very comprehensive list.

It will surprise you, or not, that it is suspected he will go free in September after being three years in custody. Another super law as in England. Won’t be long they get medals and rewards.

Mr Fox guesses that his father’s killer would not go into the witness box. If he did, it would expose too many top people and as we all know that is never done.

INCREASE OF BoE INTEREST RATES Update 20th June, 2017

Update 20th June, 2017 --
Mark Carney, head of BoE, announced today there will be no increase in interest charges

Bank of England (BoE) have received many calls urging them to increase their interest rates back to 0.5 pc, since the inflation rose higher than expected.

It is expected the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) will vote for it.

At present it is 0.25 pc.

Data from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) blamed rising prices as a “significant factor” for the slowed down retail sales in May.’

But isn’t it rather a fact of May’s £12bn Welfare cuts started on 1 April, 2017? Such massive cuts, on top of already hard-up people, bound to make them stop spending money on major items.

Signs already show a slow-down on household consumption and gross domestic products, housing market and new car registrations.

What does the Government expect?

The fact is the more you cut people’s money the less they spend which reduces orders to manufactures which reduces jobs.

It is as simple as that, but Cameron, Osborne and May will not accept the inevitable.

The result will be mass-unemployment like under Margaret Thatcher who ended up with five million but she, Cameron and May cover it up with all sort of fiddles to prove to voters a low unemployment figure.

DUP TROUBLES STARTED Update 16 June, 2017


Update 16 June, 2017 --
Gerry Adams, president of Sinn Fein, came to London to tell PM May that signing a coalition with DUP will be illegal because the British Government was involved in the Good Friday Peace agreement on both sides.
PM May must have been aware of the law so why is she determined to defy it? She will be in even greater trouble if she did!  

DUP is very much governed by the Orange Order which is the opposite to the IRA and its Sinn Fein

The Orange Order marches down the street with bowler hats and orange sashes. They used to go into Catholic areas to strike fears and crime into people living there. The last time a fire bomb was thrown into a house and three little boys died. After that they were forbidden to go through Catholic areas.

Now, with Theresa May trying to build a coalition with DUP, the Orange Order already demanding for the ban to be lifted and by the looks of it, it will be.

Since Theresa May is so determined to get the Tories back in the House of Commons as Government the DUP is in full command of getting concessions out of it.

In other words, Theresa May and Tories could be governed by DUP because if they one granted they demand another.

Let’s not underestimate DUP and the Orange Order. They were, under Ref. Ian Paisley, a very determined lot and surely have not soften much. At this moment, with the current hung Parliament and Theresa May determination to be Prime Minister again, they see their full power of bargaining for several demands in their favour.

It is also assumed that they are asking for £350million, which they will lose when UK quits the EU,  to back up the Conservatives.

Another disturbing fact came from Liverpool on Saturday. Liverpool has a big Irish community and therefore the Orange Order held a march there. It was weeks before the time when they hold it usually.

As they marched down the street they spotted an Irish pub (Republic of Ireland) and it was attacked. The march before their normal time and the attack does not seem an accident.

As the government of the Irish Republic already warned Theresa May that her action could unhinge the Good Friday Agreement and feuding and killing between the Protestant and Catholic could start again.

Does May and her advisers ever think of the consequences or are they only concerned about their power?
Another rumour started that they want the UK to stop Brexit especially DUP was not for Brexit.

PM MAY GE2017 DUP




It is incredible what happened in the last few months.

PM May denied, for weeks, to hold a General Election and suddenly announced a GE2017 held on 8 June, 2017 which cost the taxpayers £130million but there is no money for NHS, schools and housing.

Previous to that she agreed to Osborne’s budget of £12bn Welfare cuts, started on 1 April, 2017. People were already starving, food bank increasing rapidly plus homelessness and now on top of it she let the £12bn Welfare cuts go through.

Then in the last budget in March there was no mention of further funds for NHS which is in a great finance crisis and so are the schools.

Shortly, before she announced a General Election she planned to cut the school dinners which has a further devastating impact on families and children.

She plans to cut the Winter Fuel pay for pensioners. In winter 2014/15, which was mild, approx. 40,000 people died of hyperthermia, mostly old people.

PM May also wants to cancel the tribble-lock on pension, introduced by Labour, guaranteeing an increase in line with inflation.

Now the result of the GE2017 was obvious that May will not win, leave alone an increased majority.  How she and her adviser could not see it coming, is unbelievable?  Beside of that she never drew a crowd during her campaign, which was an obvious sign, and she made several U-turns plus kept changing her battle-cries but never gave any promises of funding NHS, schools, housing, increase minimum wages or tackle immigration.

How did they expect to win votes? Is she really so arrogant and big headed?

What possessed her to call an Election two weeks before the start of Brexit talk, on 19 June, 2017? It also emerged that they have no preparation. Wouldn’t it not been wiser to have worked on that and prepared themselves.
PM May and EU Tusk


After the Conservative’s disastrous result in GE2017, EU Mr Tusk cancelled the Brexit talk supposed to start on 19 June, 2017 and has not offered a new date until the political situation in the UK is settled. If time runs out before March 2019 the UK will leave the EU without any concessions.



All during the Election Campaign Tories accused Labour Leader Jeremy Corby of sympathising with the IRA but he only talk to them and brought a peace agreement between IRA and DUP about

The twist in the tail is that Theresa May wants to sign a coalition with DUP.
NI Unionists fighting Catholics


Now, to save her skin and establish a Government she must have at least 326 seats but they only achieved 319. She is now planning to sign a coalition with DUP of Northern Ireland which won 10 seats.
A song which they are singing


Democratic Union Party (DUP) was formed by Ian Paisley who kept spouting the most radical speeches and hatred against the Catholics. They were none the better than the IRA on committing crimes and murder. The British Press never reported them but only on IRA.

Today’s heads of DUP are Arlene Foster in Northern Ireland and Sir Jeffrey Donaldson in Westminster.  

People trying to find out more about DUP but the service is temporarily unavailable.

Sir Jeffrey already prophesized that since the Tories are desperate it puts a strong bargaining position on the DUP and that is where danger already lies.

A report in the Irish Times tells us more what is going on in the background and people should know.

It is not only about the Unionist’s past but it is about their recent actions.

Two days before Brexit referendum in June 2016 the free newspaper Metro was wrapped in a 4-page glossy supplement advising to leave the EU; surprisingly paid by the DUP.

At first DUP refused to disclose the cost but eventually it was an amount of £282,000 discovered.

It was not the end of the scandal. DUP admitted is came from a bigger donation from an undisclosed organisation, the Constitutional Research Council,

The question is now, why trying to influence voters on Brexit and why through DUP? One explanation is that NI is exempt from UK’s declaration of large donation.

A further question, who is really behind it all and why is it so important to influence the Brexit’s voting?

The head of Constitutional Research Council is Richard Cook a conservative activist. It has no legal status or membership list or publication and Cook does not seem to have half a million to spent on Brexit propaganda.

According DUP Peter Geoghegan and Adam Ramsay were not curious about the financial windfall.

Now the plot thickened. After further probing Richard Cook has a number of contacts with a senior, powerful Saudi royal family, who was also a former director of the Saudi intelligence agency.

Cook and Prince Nawwaf bin Abdul Aziz al Saud founded a company in April 2013, named Five Star Investments. It was listed in the company initial registration with 75 percent of shares for Prince Nawwaf, Cook 5 percent and Peter Haestrup, Danish national, 20 percent, lives in Wiltshire who has a dubious background.

Prince Nawwaf died n 2015 and had been Saudi minister for finance, government spokesman and diplomatic fixer. His son, Mohammed bin Nawwaf is Saudi’s ambassador to UK and Ireland since 2005.

It is baffling that at an age of 80 Prince Nawwaf would set-up a  business with an unknown Scottish activist.

Five Star Investment never filed an account and August 2014 the Company Office in Edinburgh threatened to strike it off; by December it was closed it.

It is surprising that Richard Cook had such a high-level Saudi connection. DUP claims they have no knowledge.

In February 2017 Arlene Foster said at a BBC interview that she did not know the amount the secret donor had given – later-on the party admitted the amount after further probing.

In March, Jeffrey Donaldson told openDemocracy DUP did not need to know the true source of the money which is not true.

UK electoral commission states “a donation of more than £500 cannot be accepted if the donation is from a source that cannot be identified.”

The result is DUP has to pay back £425,622. So far was not done it and therefore is looks like the donor is not foreign and is illegal.

May not only made her worst decision to hold an election and plans to have a coalition with DUP.

Her Tory MPs are furious and almost 300,000 people signed a petition in the first 12 hours.

If she still goes ahead many people don’t think she’ll survive it for long and there will be another General Election.

If she doesn’t go ahead she cannot build a Government.
