Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Two From The EU

Denmark has been concerned at the break-down of the Schengen agreement and the influx of migrants from the 'Southern Mediterranean'. Barroso has now warned them that checking their own borders is contrary to EU rules and therefore illegal.

A letter from him reminding Denmark of its 'obligations' under EU treaties ends with an indirect threat of legal action being taken against them. Other EU Ministers have also criticised Denmark's actions with some accusing them of pandering to right-wing extremists.

A second article that caught my eye is this one regarding the sale of meat from cloned animals & offspring. Mediterranean' so decided, unilaterally, to police its own borders and reinstate custom-controls. EU Ministers ruled, and it's been reported here, that nothing can be done to prevent the public sale of meat from cloned animals. However:
Contrary to what was argued by EU Ministers and Commission during negotiations on the ‘Novel Food’ regulation, restrictions on the marketing of food from cloned animals and their offspring could be possible with WTO rules.
There is also nothing to prevent meat from cloned animals being labelled as such.

So, there we have it in black & white: The EU considers that it's illegal for a country to protect its own borders and it lied to us about being unable to regulate meat from cloned animals being sold to the public. I wonder how many of them have vested interests.

That the Coalition still refuses to have a proper national debate about this money-draining cesspit of vile, authoritarian, scummy europrats is a national disgrace. It's time they and the BBC told people the truth and faced the consequences.

It's Still A F/ckety-f-f Morning

Arbeit Macht Frei
Not content with merely pushing world war-style rationing and the complete de-industrialization of the planet, global warming alarmists meeting in Cancun Mexico this week will propose the forced relocation of entire populations in the name of offsetting man made climate change.
As a means of mitigating climate change, encouraging sustainability and reducing CO2 emissions, the document calls for “the implementation of relocation programs for human settlements and infrastructure in high risk areas.”
Great, a cashless, smart-card, id'd society, dependent on big agri and big pharma for food/drink, issued with ration books (does the suggestion of stamps for those on benefits ring bells?), American FEMA camps ... ...   *hangs head & tuts in a very English sort of way*.

I was hoping today's PMQs would lighten the mood a little but since everything is in the eye of the beholder and my eye is only beholding an impossibly-sustainable political scenario at the moment, I doubt it.

Here's Lord Monkton (who's at Cancun) talking to Alex Jones:

I thinks this video deserves to be spread far and wide. It's time more people took stock.

A Step Closer To Food Wars?

Urgent call to action on Senate Bill 510 Food Safety Modernization Act - video

The US Senate will vote on the bill this evening. Further info can be found HERE.

Britain doesn't need laws like this - we already have fines from council jobsworths and health & safety rules to keep us in our place.   What have we become?

Three days ago in the EP Dan Hannan spoke against the EU's regulation of herbal medicine and vitamin supplements. It may seem unconnected but it isn't. It has everything to do with who controls what we choose to put into our own bodies:

Halal Or Not Halal?

Nobody seems to know the answer and that prompts me to think that EU labelling laws due to be brought in at great cost to taxpayers next year will be just as meaningless as any other method.  After posting the Sunday round-up I always try to go back and check the links are working so I duly went back to this morning's McDonald's story and also read the comments.

I have to be honest and say that I approach this from the perspective of someone who was a strict vegetarian for twelve/fourteen years in the 70s/80s on what I considered to be moral grounds, ie eating other sentient beings wasn't good for my soul.  The way of the world overtook me and when I found myself cooking three different main courses for dinner I caved in and began eating fish.  (I was promptly sick as the proverbial pig for two days but recovered and went on to re-discover the delights of crab, prawns, lobsters and a tender & garlicky fillet steak with lashings of mushroom and onion gravy).

Back to the present: some branches of Islam say that pre-stunning animals make the meat 'haram' (forbidden); others say it's 'halal' (allowed).  Little wonder that UK regulations to prevent animal cruelty, touted as the toughest in the EU, have so many loopholes.

I don't want to put you off your dinner ... but... we must think more carefully about what we buy and what we eat.  I haven't changed the titles of the following videos, which were given to them by their makers.  Please note that the first edict says, "If the animal recovers and returns to its natural state after having been stunned... it is halal  (lawful) to consume it."

We should understand that Islam permits only light stunning before an animal's throat is cut - it's still able to feel pain.  In western slaughter-houses an animal is strapped into a container which rotates it through 180deg after it's neck has been cut, yet according to the video below, this mechanisation renders it 'haram'.  "The automatic slaughtering machine is not approved Islamically."

Religious slaughter

Chopping off camels heads
Dog hung and tortured in South Korea
Cats killed for food

In case you think we in the West have the high ground on animal welfare, look at this:
Plucked alive
Dog fighting is animal abuse

I think I'll go back to my childish instinct: back to the day when two freckled & ginger-headed brothers stole Flossie, my big, beautiful, white rabbit.  Have I eaten rabbit since?  HIF.  Will I eat meat again?  Yes, I've got a feast of fillet steak on the menu for next week as a last goodbye & thanks for the memories.  I can't promise to say goodbye to the Lobster Americaine though, after all, I'm nothing but a boiled frog myself.

In case you think my tears are reserved for animals - no, my hormones are playing up so much at the moment that I even cry when I hear the name 'Miliband'.  This sort of article doesn't help me cut down on my Kleenex bills either.  I can't bear it.  I just want to live in my own small world inside my mind where people are good and cause no harm; I've had enough of the ways of the world to last me a lifetime.

Why the West is coming to Islam?
And people wonder why this religion is growing? This shit nonsense is being spouted all over the world.

It's time to consider what we've done to each other, and what we've done to animals.
Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth." So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created.
Someone seriously f*cked up when they interpreted the word "dominion".

Keep Tweaking The Curtain

There's quite a bit in the press today about the economy and jobs but no-one ever looks behind the curtain. Cameron knows what's going on, as did Blair and Brown, but when people look around for someone to blame and their eyes fall on the nearest subject, eg, the Labour Party and Gordon Brown, they're missing the bigger picture. Politicians are guilty of complicity but they're not the instigators. They are a distraction; they're chaff thrown up to take the flak while the banking cartels escape real scrutiny.

They're all rewarded though.  Seats are kept warm for them in global organisations: the IMF, the WTO, the EU, NATO.  They won't be taxed to within an inch of their lives; they won't feel a cut in public services (who was the last politician to catch a bus?) and the police will be on their doorstep like a shot if they report a crime.   The whole thing stinks.

The Independent

Watch the language:

Do you really think this doesn't apply to Britain too? Do you really think we are immune?

Next week at the Conservative Party conference and in three weeks when the Comprehensive Spending Review is detailed, does anyone think the government will say anything other than, 'the previous govt is to blame'; 'we must all tighten our belts'; 'we're all in this together'? I don't. I don't expect any meaningful reform of the banking sector either - even Carswell's proposed Bank of England Act 2010 is only a half-way measure.

When our elected representatives suck up to indicted war criminals in the name of big business you have to wonder what happened to ethics and morality in government and how we can turn things around in a peaceful way.

PS I see that, amongst many other things, I haven't mentioned corporatism in this post, so here it is: Corporatism.

This Week...

...I have mostly been eating tofu and thinking.  I thought about painting the living room: then I thought about the roller, the brush, the extension pole and the paint.

Next, I thought about properly dividing winter and summer clothes:  then I thought that it's only four months until November.   After that I made a cup of tea.

In between all the exertion of painting my toenails and topping up my wrinkles I've also thought about Alan Bennett, why there are no good films on the tv lately and the sort of people who have the top jobs at global institutions.  So, as you can see, I've been kept pretty busy.

It wasn't until this morning that I felt the urge to catch-up with the news and, guess what?  The world still turns, it hasn't changed; it's like I've never been away.  The same sh!ts are running it, causing all the same old problems and telling the same old lies.

I was going to do an ABC of things that caught my eye but it's much easier to just file everything under B for B@ast@rds, so, for better or worse, here we go:

'Sigard': monitoring a conversation near you
The WWI headline - except it's not
 My Kinda Guy
'ear, 'ear
We're answerable to so many bloody Courts
Lord Foster still a Lord
British Ambassador to Lebanon re-writes history
Because the UK's worth it
If you wonder why your pension's gone down the Swannee - wonder no more
Fly the flag and show your appreciation
Once upon a time there was a Bottomless Well of the Taxpayer
Dr Jerome Ikwuekwe "could" be struck off
One small step for  man and two back for ACPO
And then there's this headline The answer is, "No, they didn't - they're just following another EU directive". Lobbyists from the food industry persuaded MEPs to vote in their favour a while back. MEPs - doncha just luv 'em? They give an entirely new dimension to a certain well-known phrase.

The 'Am I Bovvered' section:
Lady Gaga has cellulite ad infinitum
USA-v-Russia is a done deal and a non-story

The 'Meanwhile, Don't Forget to be Very Afraid' section:
Red Alert
*  Surveillance technology only used for motorists and litterers
Houses can give you cancer

The 'Wake Me, Shake Me, When It's Over' section:
LibDems formulating military strategy

I've missed out quite a bit, not least that flatulent sack of ruminant remainders, John Prescott, being elevated to the *cough* House of Lords. We've seen Michael Martin elevated despite presiding over the taking-the-p!ss-out-of-the-taxpayer-expenses-debacle - yet Cameron still prefers the Upper House to be part elected and part nominated and expects us to trust him. A game of soldiers springs to mind.

PS How many topics were removed from Google at the request of the UK govt between July & December, 2009?

You Won't Hold Up The Weather

avatar: animated image: bathtub catI've lost count of the number of poets I've referenced and the music I've posted on this blog but not a snippet of Blake or Kipling can make it better now.  I've lost track of the last thirteen years and the time it's taken for people to catch on.  I'm tired of asking questions that only result in a coalition government.

This coalition govt we have was engineered.  The economic crisis was engineered.  Our society is still being engineered.  Pharmaceutical companies dictate our health and 'global warming' dictates our monthly gas/electricity bills.  The 'war' on drugs is engineered. Wars are engineered.

Taxation is heaped on regulation and we live in fear of the unknown; we live in fear of each other.  In the search for freedom of the individual we're controlled and limited in what we may or may not know.  Re-writing history is the equivalent of book-burning and lobbyists are only the tip of an iceberg.

I'm taking a break for a day or two because I can't bear it any more.  You must know that we're being lied to?

Vivaldi's Gloria, Blake's illustrations and one of my favourite poems:
It's no go the merrygoround, it's no go the rickshaw,
All we want is a limousine and a ticket for the peepshow.
Their knickers are made of crêpe-de-chine, their shoes are made of python,
Their halls are lined with tiger rugs and their walls with heads of bison.

John MacDonald found a corpse, put it under the sofa,
Waited till it came to life and hit it with a poker,
Sold its eyes for souvenirs, sold its blood for whiskey,
Kept its bones for dumb-bells to use when he was fifty.

It's no go the Yogi-Man, it's no go Blavatsky,
All we want is a bank balance and a bit of skirt in a taxi.

Annie MacDougall went to milk, caught her foot in the heather,
Woke to hear a dance record playing of Old Vienna.
It's no go your maidenheads, it's no go your culture,
All we want is a Dunlop tyre and the devil mend the puncture.

The Laird o' Phelps spent Hogmanay declaring he was sober,
Counted his feet to prove the fact and found he had one foot over.
Mrs Carmichael had her fifth, looked at the job with repulsion,
Said to the midwife 'Take it away; I'm through with overproduction'.

It's no go the gossip column, it's no go the Ceilidh,
All we want is a mother's help and a sugar-stick for the baby.

Willie Murray cut his thumb, couldn't count the damage,
Took the hide of an Ayrshire cow and used it for a bandage.
His brother caught three hundred cran when the seas were lavish,
Threw the bleeders back in the sea and went upon the parish.

It's no go the Herring Board, it's no go the Bible,
All we want is a packet of fags when our hands are idle.

It's no go the picture palace, it's no go the stadium,
It's no go the country cot with a pot of pink geraniums,
It's no go the Government grants, it's no go the elections,
Sit on your arse for fifty years and hang your hat on a pension.

It's no go my honey love, it's no go my poppet;
Work your hands from day to day, the winds will blow the profit.
The glass is falling hour by hour, the glass will fall for ever,
But if you break the bloody glass you won't hold up the weather.
'Bagpipe Music' by Louis MacNeice, 1907 - 1963.

Population Control, YouTube & Censorship

UKWebSpider has been having problems with YouTube. He's uploaded this video twice, with difficulty, and now the comments are being censored so I'm re-posting it here in the hope that a few more people will get to see it. It's about the food we eat and global population control:

Friday Post

Another article from Euro-Med: UN world government which details a speech by Pascal Lamy, 'the Beast of Berlaymont' and Director-General of the WTO.  "He was seen as ruling Delor's office with a "rod of iron", with no-one able to bypass or manipulate him and those who tried being "banished to one of the less pleasant European postings".

First, some video background to Lamy/WTO and an interview which includes the gem, "Liberalisation is a very ambiguous English word":

"Summary: This is a remarkably detailed speech about the New World Order´s World Government structure - by multiple Bilderberger, Pascal Lamy, and with the approval in principle from the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel. Lamy believes that the reason for the problems he and his elitist colleagues are creating for the world are due to the fact that at the end of the cold war no efficient world government was established.   For global problems require global solutions! As a horror example he produces the climate lie with islands supposedly dissapearing into the sea (where?). The EU is the only example of supranational governance and a model for world government. This must be sustainable (ie communist). He defines global governance as "the system "we" (the elite) created to help human societies achieve their common purpose" - also England´s communist EU organisation. Our laws, social norms, values and practices must be standardized (by the elite). National state coherence must be transformed into a global one. The EU is under construction, was the effect of a common political will, a common project and common institutions. Thus the world state, too, will come into being. But as the peoples of the EU increasingly turn their backs on the European project it is lacking legitimacy (legality) - world government consequently, too. Fortunately Europeans are said to require more and better European foreign policy!?? Global governance is to be provided by:
1) The rule of law (elite law) with feasible commitments on the basis of consent.
2) Subsidiarity, ie. problem solving in the communities - as desired by the very globalist pope. Naturally, with a supranational authority, namely a triangle: The G20 is to set policies and to report to the UN World Parliamentary Assembly.
3) Also un-elected global institutions. The UN must act as one in the UN family. International issues should dominate the domestic debate to allow world government "legitimacy." He mentions world governance or an equivlent 15 times, so he really does have this at heart.

The following may be boring, but it is nothing less than the structure of the New World Order´s global government - presented by multiple Bilderberger and WTO boss, Pascal Lamy - as detailed as probably not seen before... "

"[The] building of Europe ... is not complete in any of its dimensions. Not in that of geography. Not in its depth, that is, in the powers conferred by its member states to the European Union." Lamy
"The European construction is the most ambitious experiment to date in supranational governance." Lamy
"Community law takes precedence over national law. The creation of a supranational body such as the European Commission that has been given the monopoly of initiating legislation. A European Court of Justice whose decisions are binding on national judges. A Parliament composed of a senate of member states (European Council) and a house of representatives elected by the European “demos” and which has gained in competences over the years. These are just a few of the things that, taken together, make the European Union a radically new economic and political entity on the scene of international governance." Lamy
