Following the guidelines of the NUJ (National Union of Journalists that I designated the National Union of Jerks), those he employs have from time to time launch deplorable attacks against the British National Party.
The news is that Mr Alexander Lebedev has stated that he will not have enough money to absorb the losses made by his newspapers that together last year generated a loss amounting to £17.4 million Pound.
The reason for this is that his business operations in Russia are not making enough money. His potato business - according to Mr Alexander Lebedev - will generate a profit amounting to £1.25 million Pound which is visibly not enough to plug the hole generated by his newspapers in the United Kingdom.
Mr. Lebedev has reportedly lost his banking operation and lost his license for his airline business. This is not the first time a Russian oligarch with business interests in London has end up in tears. A few months ago, Boris Berezovsky who had reportedly lost most of his assets, was found dead.
Some time ago during an television interview, Mr. Lebedev boasted that the losses made by his newspapers in the UK were not something to worry about given his financial muscle. Times have changed. Ah, by the way, the latest interview during which the former KGB agent talked about his financial troubles was done The Guardian newspaper, another loss making operation that also follows the guidelines of the NUJ that, incidentally, faces financial difficulties.
This is starting to look like a question for Have I got News for You: what do Alexander Lebedev, The Guardian Newspaper and the NUJ have in common?

Since the days of the pro-independence movements, there was an organized rejection of anything British to the point that even the word British was thrown out and the loose organization became known as Commonwealth incorporating countries that had never been under British rule.
Since the formation of the Common Market, followed by the European Community and now the European Union, British politicians were more interested in promoting greater and stronger links with European countries, rather than trying to maintain links with countries with which - apart from long gone colonial links - Britain has little in common.
It must be said that there are three kinds of Commonwealth countries: some have strong cultural and ethnic links with Britain, others were part of a colonial past and others never had practically anything in common since they were not even British colonies.
We, collectively, should forget about any kind of Romanticism and look at the practicalities to decide what needs to be done about what we usually call Commonwealth. The past is long gone and now we need to focus on present realities on a case by case basis.
There have been fundamental economic, political and ideological changes. Strong cooperation based on good bilateral relations could be a much better way of moving forward, instead of being permanently anchored in the past.
We went from the British Empire to the British Commonwealth, from the British Commonwealth to the Commonwealth. Perhaps now is the time to forget about the Commonwealth. We must look at each individual country and decide what kind of links we would like to have if any at all.
Corpse Tax is one of the most unfair, if not the most unfair tax ever. You work and you pay every conceivable tax after taxes have already been deducted from your salary. You buy yourself a home or a car with monies that have already been taxes and you are taxed even more. At the end of the road, whatever is left as inheritance is taxed all over, once again, with a 40% tax.
You work, you pay your taxes, and one day you decide to fly and.... you are taxed again and the excuse is that government needs to tax you to save the Planet. Such rubbish explanation is given as an excuse to take more and more money to maintain a bureaucratic system that is destroying the Planet and ruining the economy in the process by making people feel a lot more miserable that they would otherwise feel. Green Taxes are the greatest lie ever told.
An ideological tax called TV License is the number one reason to end up in Court and thousands of cases are being dragged through the Legal System for weeks or even months on end. The TV License costs about £150 which is the equivalent to a one-hour fee charged by a barrister. So, you can imagine the amount of money and time been wasted prosecuting people who don't pay or cannot pay the TV License. If you still wanted to finance a bias and corrupt organization with public monies, you could do with an item on the National Budget taken directly from the National Purse.
If we abolish TV License, the costs of running such services would be shared by the Nation as a whole instead of having a system that penalizes individuals who end up paying for themselves and for everybody else.
When you build a house, the mortar, the bricks, the steel bars, et cetera, et cetera, have already been taxed. So why should you pay an additional tax called Stamp Duty? Yeap.... you guess right.... Stamp Duty is yet another invention to make homes more expensive. Tax, tax and more taxes depress the economy and create unemployment. So we should keep taxes for things that are absolutely essential and reduce or eliminate all together bureaucratic and ideological taxes.
|Tommy Robinson: Fifth Columnist?|
When the British National Party was becoming 'too successful', the mass media decided to 'fuel up alternative operators' as a way to divert attention and cook reports about 'Divided Nationalists'.
Since 2001, the British National Party had been denouncing the actions of Asian gangs (most Muslims of Pakistani ancestry) and being attacked by the BBC that accused the leader of the British National Party of racism because he was trying to raise the alarm against pedophiles and murderers.
So the mass media raised the profile of the so-called English Democrats many of whom had left the British National Party and had a past in the National Front. This was short-lived and proved extremely unsuccessful.
Later on, the mass media suggested that the English Defense League was going to become the alternative to the British National Party, even though it was merely a campaign organization with no political ambitions and no political infra-structure. I spoke laterally about the subject in several articles (Die Frage ist: Wollen sie eine Politische Partei, eine Politische Bewegung oder eine Soziale Bewegung?) and indicated that the statements made by the mass media were absolutely nonsensical.
Tommy Robinson's defection proved that EDL had been simply another effort to divide Nationalists that had gone terribly wrong when the elites realized that they could not control it and Tommy Robinson said it himself in front of television cameras calling his former supporters 'dangerous extremists'.
Combat 18 (or C-18), infiltration by both the Police and parapolitical operators, the creation of ghost political parties and phantom political organizations, the use of so called moles like the wife of a celebrated anti-Fascist campaigner and member of the Communist Party that went to bed with practically every member of the National Front in a effort to destroy the National Front have been tools to fight against the genuine defenders of British National Interests.
We have accumulated evidence of people that pretended to be genuine Nationalists and were actually informers passing distorted information to organizations like Hope Not Hate, Searchlight, Stop the Nazi BNP and others including the BBC. The said informs strived to be sensationalist and when there was no genuine information to be provided they fabricated information to please their paymasters.
As a test and in order to prove wrongdoing, we gave them hooks and they swallowed them without even noticing that we were giving them something that would definitely prove that they were not genuine Nationalists.
Tommy Robinson has been the Establishment best creation. They created the perfect image (non-Anti-Semite, Non-Racist and genuinely concerned about the British people or so they said). But somewhere along the way, things went wrong. Emboldened by what was then a seal of approval, more and more people started to operate under the umbrella of EDL and this included gangs, former National Front members, and all kinds of individuals that flocked into the EDL and people that Tommy Robinson could not possibly control.
The mood about the EDL changed and suddenly the mass media portrayed EDL as a bunch of violent thugs with Extreme Right credentials that needed to be stopped and Tommy Robinson ended up in jail. Jail was a bit what a cocoon is for the caterpillar before it turns into a butterfly.
Like in a real life version of Clockwork Orange, Tommy Robinson comes out of prison as the reformed guy, the prodigal son that saw the errors of his ways. Suddenly, he becomes the darling of the BBC and Jeremy Paxman conducts a Newsnight programme with Tommy Robinson talking as a reformed man that has seen the light and documentaries are made showing Tommy Robinson standing together with pseudo representatives of Muslim Communities.
The King left the battlefield leaving behind the corpses of those who believed in him and a bunch of disoriented survivors desperately trying to pick up the pieces and running for their lives. Soonafter, the jokers of the mass media wrote articles stating 'The Leader of EDL left EDL. Is this the end of Nationalism in Britain?'
Unfortunately, for the corrupt and unprincipled mass media, the EDL was nothing more than yet another trick to divide Nationalism that is very much very alive and kicking. The Leader of the British National Party launched an appeal inviting all genuine EDL members that were stabbed in the back by Tommy Robinson to join the British National Party because the British National Party is very much the true force in British Nationalism.

The books that I haven't read and the discovery of a whole new Universe hidden behind things we see as chores
I enter the building and start wondering around going through different sections and spending some time dipping my eyes into a whole array of worlds - new and old - and getting in touch with the things that I would like to know.
Such visits last about 3 hours and at the end, I leave with mixed emotions - the frustration of not being able to grasp all the knowledge that is readily available and the satisfaction of having spent a glorious and exciting time opening my mind and allowing myself to taste the pleasures of an intellectual voyage.
More than once I have found myself talking to my children and telling them that being an adult means that you are aware of all the things that you don't know and of the fact that you wouldn't have enough time to investigate, to enjoy, to get involved, to taste, to research and get a real feel of what the world is really about.
I reckon those of the younger generations that get into trouble are basically intellectually deprived, unable to experience and get involved in more constructive endeavours. I feel that the so-called Pop Culture has castrated them from an intellectual point of view. At my age, my sense of curiosity is stronger than ever before. I feel more intellectually thirsty than ever before. I cannot possibly be bored.
My sense of experimentation also includes the use of new machines, new gadgets, new tools and this includes ordinary chores like repairing, cleaning, installing, painting, et cetera. If what you need is instant gratification, I do recommend cleaning the grout and the tiles of your bathroom or to spend the day vacuum cleaning. If you focus on the tasks in hand there are some intellectual lessons that you could learn learning to do things in a different way. Thus, washing the dishes or cleaning up the kitchen is no longer a set of chores. It is a learning process, a cleansing experience, a way of becoming more disciplined and more grounded.
To sum up, there are many lessons to be learned, many activities that you could enjoy and you will find intellectuality where you least expect to find it. A change of attitude opens the gates that lead into a completely new universe.
I was fascinated watching a scene of a movie called Karate Kid. The old master is training a boy that wants to become a Karate fighter. The master asks him to polish some cars using his hands that move around clockwise and then anti-clockwise. The boy does not see the link between the humble act of polishing a car and basic Karate moves. Life works in mysterious ways and things that are apparently unrelated can be part of a chain.

Grant Shapps, Conservative Party Chairman, made a statement as concerns grow about BBC bias and mismanagement, while criticizing what is very much at the core of BBC's problems directly linked to its culture of secrecy and cover-ups.
To pretend that the BBC is going to stop being biased when it is actually ruled by left-wing biased operators linked to the Labour Party and its associated media including The Guardian is frankly naïve.
It has been reported that a BBC spokesman said that 'Mr Shapps is right that transparency is key to the future of the BBC. So is its freedom from political pressure'. What the BBC spokesman did not mention is that the BBC is no longer, and has not been for a very long time, an impartial public broadcasting organization.
Conspiracy theories and all the talk about conspiracy theories do not change the fundamental fact that our successes or our failures are the direct consequence of what we, as individuals, are willing to do to change our so called bad luck into good luck. The mix is about 10 per cent of genius and 90 per cent of effort and for all of us - without exception - a day is 24 hours.
We blame the weather, a Zionist Conspiracy, those of the Left, those of the Centre and those of the Right for whatever happens in our lives without accepting that much of what happens in our lives is linked to what we do and what we don't do.
From an early age, I learnt to recognize the fallacies of Socialism that blames those who have for the misfortunes of those who have not. I look at the behavior of the have and have not and I remember the words of Benjamin Franklin who said: "Laziness travels so slowly that Poverty soon overtakes him."
I am not a friend of alcohol and I sincerely despise tobacco and other kinds of addictions including comfort eating. Whenever we feel that the world is coming to an end, we should remember the words of Rudyard Kipling, keeping ourselves grounded and using every minute available to do something to improve our human condition:
IF you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

When we face on the streets members of Stop the Nazi BNP, Hope Not Hate, UAF, UNITE and others waving red flags with Hammer and Sickle, we should be very much aware of what they mean: a call to oppression and repression that has nothing to do with freedom and social justice.
Pogroms and Archipelago Gulags, extrajudicial executions, abolition of private property and political and religious persecution implemented in the name of Socialism, one of the most corrupting and murderous set of doctrines the world has even seen.

We cannot go on like this and David Cameron knows it. International oil and gas prices cannot be controlled by Socialism. They go up and down depending on market conditions and we need to have an economy that is as flexible as possible to be able not just to survive but thrive.
Who benefits from the said taxes? Not Britain, for certain. People in Britain have had to cope with higher gas prices, higher electricity prices, higher transport fares because - and make no mistake - the cost of travelling is ridiculously high because of the bloody Green Taxes. Green Taxes make the food we eat more expensive and millions of families across the country know about it when we need the Red Cross to start collecting money to help those who cannot even afford to eat because of Green Taxes that are just an idiotic gimmick.
Only by investing in research and development will we be able to find alternative sources of energy. The Socialist idiots always want to cut corners and pretend that by forcing taxation upon people who can ill afford to have a decent living standard they will solve the planet's problems.
Who are the most affected by Green Taxes? The so called Working Class. The Working Class has to suffer because the so called Green Taxes come straight from their food budget.
Get rid of Green Taxes and allow the economy to recover so that we can have more jobs and less people living on the edge.
There are regulations regarding rental agreements and commercial properties used as hotels that are being flouted and irregularities must be remedied. All occupants of residential properties should be registered as entitled to occupy the said property. If it is found that a residential property is being used as a hotel the owner of the said property should be held accountable for tax purposes.
The owners of properties that are supposed to be family homes and are being used for commercial purposes without being registered as commercial enterprises are violating regulations and evading taxation and they should be dealt with by the authorities.

Luckily, I was born in the Christian tradition and I wasn't brainwashed with myths and stupidity. The day will come, in a world with more than 7 billion people, when we will have to eat what we can eat and this might include fellow human beings and the choices will be very straightforward: eat or starve to death.
In October 1972, an airplane carrying a group of Uruguayan rugby players and some of their relatives fell in the Andes. The survivors found themselves dealing with temperatures below zero and they only managed to survive eating the corpses of those who succumbed.
The mother of one of the Uruguayan rugby players was my biology teacher in high-school when the accident happened so I was very much in touch with developments. There are very harsh lessons to learn. Faced with starvation, they could only survive feeding on the bodies of those who had died.
Hopefully, I will never find myself in such desperate circumstances but what happened taught me to ignore any religious nonsense.

I don't imagine that our growing elderly population will have the energy to go out and play outside making snowballs.

The issue regarding the American budget was centered on the implementation of healthcare initiatives in the USA. I criticize President Obama for having been the continuation of George Bush in terms of Foreign Affairs but I do support the principle that every British citizen - and likewise every American citizen - is entitled to affordable healthcare.
I strongly believe that healthcare is an issue of National Security. Health and Prosperity go hand in hand. When monies are scarce, we must make the best use of every resource that we have got. If we want a healthy and prosperous Nation, healthcare is not something we can possible do without.

|Chancellor George Osborne|
Did people think that Royal Mail's problems were going to disappear merely by selling it? So now they have sold it and now any problems are going to be dealt with by a private board of directors.
If they don't manage to put Royal Mail back on track and if the value of shares in the open market suddenly collapses, Royal Mail will be effectively lost forever in a jungle of smaller private companies and might end up following Woolworths into non existence.
In some areas, the whole idea of privatization is a complete shambles. The railways example is one of the most wasteful uses of public monies. They knew from the start that railway companies could not survive without public monies and for decades they have been maintained with an enormous amount of public subsidies while so called shareholders are literally milking the British exchequer and imposing ever higher travelling fares.
The government announced that it was going to cap yearly fare increases but this little consolation when you think about the amount of money British taxpayers are giving to private shareholders, money that is taken away from other public services.
I will not get involved in the debate of public versus private. What I want to say is that every case must be judged on its merits. The privatization of Royal Mail increasingly looks not as a real solution but as a way of putting a problem on somebody else's shoulders.

|Tommy Robinson (Extreme Right) pictured with three Racist Extremists|
During a debate organized by Vox Africa in Battersea, Tommy Robinson tried to appear uncompromising when talking against Islam and accused Prophet Mohammed of being a pedophile and for having set an example followed by other Muslims. Well, what he said is on record and as you know we always deal with facts. Those he now tries to work with should know that Tommy Robinson insulted their faith and their Prophet.
I, Carlos Cortiglia, London Regional Press Officer of the British National Party, can bear witness of that Tommy Robinson said what he said in front of a television audience during a satellite television broadcast.

How much more can the debt ceiling be risen? Is periodically increasing the amount of money owed going to become the normal thing to do? Imagine if we all were all allowed to accumulate debts without ever being able to repay what we owe. Wouldn't that be nice? We could ask the Banks to deliver free money to everybody without a care in the world. Well, this is what President Obama is asking Congress to do. 'Keep giving me money that can never be repaid. Keep getting into debt.' Obama's Presidency is going end but the American people are going to have to live with the consequences of financial mismanagement.
I criticize President Obama not because of his race or because of the doubts about his place of birth. I criticize President Obama because he has not delivered and because he continues creating more and more public debt. America is not better off. America is worse off because of the policies of his administration and because of the policies and practices of the entire American Establishment and this includes both Republicans and Democrats. 'Cheap is Expensive.' Made in China is expensive because it is measured as the number of jobs that we do not have.
If we are going to have debts, we should at least reduce cheap imports and employ more people.

The more you read, it gets worse. Almost 25 per cent, one of every four adults, have literacy skills expected of a 10-year old or worse, in what is considered to be a far higher failure rate than the International Average.
Political correctness has destroyed British Education replacing it with fake standards, fake league tables and fake success.
Britain is the country in which people aged between 16 and 24 'display basic skills that are worse than the skills of those nearing retirement age.
Force-fed cultural enrichment rubble, generation after generation has been downgraded and transformed into the X-Factor/Bingo society, failure combined with the illusion of quick fame and enrichment without any major effort with adults that are only able to understand simple texts and are unable to deal with anything else apart from basic arithmetic.
Talking to an Austrian journalist, I explicitly defined the problem by saying: Die Frage ist: Politische Partei, Politische Bewegung oder Soziale Bewegung? (The question is: Political Party, Political Movement or Social Movement)
Tommy Robinson's political lack of acumen is shown very clearly every step of the way. Tommy Robinson's strength was in the end its own weakness because he could not possibly control a very chaotic arrangement of different groups that operated in an ad hoc basis without any formal organization or party political structure and without a membership structure.
Several times during the interview, Jeremy Paxman asked Tommy Robinson if he had changed his mind and had left behind what he campaigned for for several years. Tommy Robinson stated that he had left behind EDL because he wanted real dialogue to combat extremism.
The real strength of EDL was built on its notoriety created by rallies, demonstrations and sometimes violent confrontations. Take away the street element and it would have nothing left because it was not organized as a political party.
Without a political structure and without the strength provided by its notoriety, Tommy Robinson would become a non-entity and nothing more than a talking head.
'several thousand Islamist extremists live in the United Kingdom, want to attack the country and see British people as a legitimate target.
During a speech at the Royal United Services Institute in London, the Head of MI5 said that 'our task is getting harder. The threats are more diverse and diffuse and that the threats are directly linked to Muslims living in the United Kingdom.
everything about them.
Therefore, if you one of them is a terrorist we have very good reasons to believe that their families are involved in terrorism and should be treated as a terrorist threat.

The English Defense League grew up around the personality cult of Tommy Robinson and the mass media tried to make the best of it by creating a bundle of myths that did not last too long.
Firstly, the mass media said that the English Democrats were going to replace the British National Party. Then, when that did not work, they chose Tommy Robinson and the EDL as the avant-garde and the forerunners in the eclipse of the British National Party.
When that didn't work, they chose to talk about the United Kingdom Independence Party UKIP and its leader Nigel Farage saying that UKIP was going to replace other so called minority parties and even challenge the Conservatives for first place in the political game within Conservatism.
Suddenly, all those above mentioned (British National Party, English Democrats, EDL and UKIP) were categorized as Far Right and accused of crimes none of them had committed. Although I suspect, that for the British mass media anybody who challenges the Establishment is forcefully categorized as Far Right or Extremist.
Having said that, the statement made by Tony Robinson to justify his resignation as Leader of the English Defense League mentions that Tony Robinson leaves EDL because EDL has become 'too extreme.' Something does not fit it. The EDL was led by Tommy Robinson. In fact, everything revolved around the personality of Tommy Robinson. Now the leader himself says that his followers are 'too extreme' and look for cooperation with so called 'Moderate Muslims who are trying to counter Extremism within Muslim Communities'.
I met Tommy Robinson during a debate about Islam organized by Vox Africa and either Tommy Robinson has had a change of heart regarding Islam or there is something else going on in the background that we are not aware of.

Robin Shepherd ask a fundamental question and here is the article that we have reproduced.
Why isn't the Black Book of Communism on the curriculum of every school in Europe? Because it isn't exhaustive enough? Because its authors lack credibility? Because there is still more to be understood and researched on the matter?
At more than 850 pages of carefully sifted evidence by a group of top-level scholars from a variety of countries and disciplines, the Black Book is as solid a piece of scholarship as any other you'll find being taught in our schools.
Is it definitive? How could it be? Communist regimes went to great lengths to conceal their crimes, and one of the most oppressive of all, North Korea, still exists to this day. What the book does is use the best available evidence to give a sense of the scale of what we are dealing with.
In introducing the Black Book, lead author Stephane Courtois, Director of Research at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) in Paris, offers the following rough breakdown of the numbers of people that communism killed:
USSR -- 20 million
China -- 65 million
Vietnam -- 1 million
North Korea -- 2 million
Cambodia -- 2 million
Eastern Europe -- 1 million
Latin America -- 150,000
Africa -- 1.7 million
Afghanistan -- 1.5 million
Communist movements, parties not in power -- 10,000
In total, this is not far short of 100 million deaths at the hands of a single ideology. Nothing like this has ever happened before. (As an aside, my personal view is that the Nazi Holocaust of the Jews was the greatest single crime of the modern era, while communism was the greatest criminal system.)
To be sure, these numbers are approximations. Courtois gives a figure of 20 million for the Soviet Union. Alexander Yakovlev, formerly the chairman of Russia's Presidential Commission for the
Rehabilitation of Victims of Political Repression, estimates the numbers executed or done to death in prisons and camps for purely political reasons at 20-25 million.
But, in his book A Century of Violence in Soviet Russia, he reminds us not to forget the 5.5 million victims of famine in the Civil War and the 5 million in the artificial famine of the 1930s. Other respected authorities offer even higher numbers.
What should be clear from the Soviet Union and beyond is the staggering scale of what we are being asked to internalize.
Apologists have adopted a number of strategies -- beyond outright denial which lasted for decades. One of the most popular and enduring is that we should not spend much time on the crimes of communism because Western countries have also committed crimes, most particularly when they had their empires.
To say that this is disingenuous is an understatement. Even if it were true that Western countries had committed similar crimes -- which it most certainly isn't -- why would that be an obstacle to discussing the crimes of communism? Jack the Ripper isn't any the less of a killer because Ted Bundy was too.
But more importantly, Western imperialism was no more oppressive, and in many ways it was a good deal less oppressive, than any of the other imperialisms throughout history. The British Empire was the first ever to abolish slavery, for example. In any case, imperialism isn't a blueprint for societal governance. It isn't in the same category as ideologies such as communism, fascism, Nazism or even liberal-democratic capitalism anyway.
This is all easy to pin down, which brings us back to the question posed at the beginning of this piece: Why isn't the Black Book of Communism on the curriculum of every school in Europe?
The answer is not all that difficult to get to. The reason why the crimes of communism are given so little societal prominence is that very large sections of Western political society were supporters of or apologists for the Leftist ideology that gave rise to those crimes.
To talk openly about the history of communism is to talk openly about the history of the Left. And even among those who were not communists themselves, vast swathes inside the Leftist tradition stayed far too close to the communists for comfort.
It's their very dirty big secret, and although they can't do much these days about tracts such as the Black Book of Communism lying on the dusty top shelves of our public libraries, they'll be damned if they're going to start handing them out to children in the classrooms.
Of course, I am using the school curriculum issue as a proxy for a wider reluctance fully to come to terms with one of history's darkest chapters. The angry reaction of the British Left this week to the Daily Mail's discussion of Labour leader Ed Miliband's Marxist father suggests that that reluctance is as deeply embedded as ever.

Something good could come out of the American shutdown: the suspension of negotiations of the USA/EU Free Trade Agreement that would allow the French government to free France from such deadly agreement.
Putting our industry, our agriculture and our services at the mercy of an ultra-liberal excesses, such agreement only benefits American interests.
French Workers and French pensioners would be the first victims of such an agreement.
Today, negotiations have been suspended because of circumstances in the USA. Tomorrow, they should be definitively stopped by political will. This is about French national interest.
Intelligent protectionism against unfair competition must be pursued to allow to revive French manufacturing.
If the government and the UMP continue to blindly support such agreement, they will be guilty of treason against fundamental interests of our country.
Communiqué de Presse de Florian Philippot, Vice-Président du Front National
Du shutdown américain peut sortir un bien : la suspension des négociations sur l’accord de libre-échange UE/Etats-Unis qui en résulte doit être l’occasion pour le gouvernement français de se ressaisir et de dégager la France de ce funeste accord.
Livrant notre industrie, notre agriculture et nos services à la sauvagerie ultralibérale de l’ouverture totale des frontières, cet accord répond à des impératifs purement américains.
Les travailleurs et retraités français en seraient les premières victimes.
Aujourd’hui les négociations sont suspendues par la force des choses, demain elles doivent être définitivement stoppées par la volonté politique. Il en va de notre intérêt national.
Un protectionnisme intelligent face à la concurrence déloyale doit au contraire être recherché, pour permettre la réindustrialisation de notre pays.
Si le gouvernement et l’UMP continuent de soutenir aveuglément ce projet, ils se rendront coupables d’une trahison des intérêts fondamentaux de notre pays.

The Charity Commission is so concerned that it has issued guidelines for fund-raising bodies.
William Shawcross, Chairman of the Charity Commission, indicated that given conditions created by the conflict it is impossible for charities to know where the financial aid ends up.
More than 20 million Pound have been raised by organizations like the British Red Cross, Oxfam and Save the Children.
It is Vox Populi that British-born terrorists are involved in Syria and were involved in the murderous attack in Kenya. Syria and other countries are training grounds for individuals that later on could carry out attacks in the United Kingdom.

We talk about unemployment. We talk about health, education and transport. We talk about housing and the prospects of families acquiring a housing unit or having access to housing. Every single issue is linked to immigration because a country is above all the people who live in the country. So responsible management of immigration is directly linked to every single resource available for those who are already living in the country.
It is our duty to talk about what is going on in Britain and it is our duty to raise the issues that need to be raised and we do so within the legal framework of a Democratic society with Universal laws that apply to everybody regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, political beliefs or any other consideration.
One of the fundamentals regarding Opposition to the European Union is that Britain as a member country of the European Union cannot control its own borders.

Constant blaming by both Republicans and Democrats is not a solution for America's dire financial problems. There is always money to go to war but suddenly there is no money for projects that could help rebuild America and reverse its ongoing decline. So President Obama will blame those who are opposed to the constant cycle of printing money and increasing debt.
Those who oppose the cycle of ever increasing debt will blame President Obama but all is not what it seems. Under both Republican and Democratic Administrations, Federal Government have ignored the fact that debts have to be paid and have continued to spend as if there was no Tomorrow.
For decades, American Administrations have preached to other governments the kind of financial probity that America itself has failed to adhere to. The Number-One World Power is nothing more than a Gambler and Shopaholic Nation that owes money to practically everybody and then we periodically get into conflicts when the so-called Debt Ceiling needs to be raised to continue accumulating debt.
