I have given the article linked below, ample time to filter onto the relevant blogs and social networks for a few days before commenting.

As expected, the Twitterati, (The domain of the Dumb and the home of the Demented) and the usual crop of blaggers have seen it and grabbed it with both hands, wholeheartedly believing it will finally put an end to decades of cover-ups and mis-information, and will eradicate the ever-present spectre of historic child abuse in this country.

 ‘Former children’s minister Tim Loughton and Conservative backbencher Zac Goldsmith are calling for a national inquiry into historical cases of child sex abuse. Goldsmith has co-ordinated a high-powered, cross-party group of seven MPs to sign a joint letter to Theresa May, home secretary, urging her to set up an independent panel to investigate repeated failures by police and other authorities in several cases.’

So, my question must be, do we really need yet another band of electioneering pseudo heroes, or just a single, honest, decent and transparent politician ?

This call for a national enquiry incidentally, followed closely the European Elections, where UKIP, unsurprisingly battered the mainstream parties.

The Liberal Democrats have also fallen spectacularly from grace, which could also prove very significant at some point.

The British Public are now, and quite rightly, completely disillusioned with mainstream Politics & Politicians in general, are desperate for change, and it’s a situation that is not looking like it will resolve itself anytime soon.

Then, from seemingly nowhere, seven cross-party political heroes ride into town, calling for yet another, albeit independent enquiry into historic childhood abuse.

Those who are understandably cynical, could argue that the timing could not have been better even if it had been planned that way.

THE ORIGINAL SEVEN:

magnificentseven2

Tom Watson and Simon Danczuk

TOM WATSON: The torchbearer of the seven, while at the same time being associated with Searchlight. He has also publicly denied knowing abuse victim-bashing David Rose, even though he sat on a Home Affairs Committee panel which questioned Rose. Watson has recently, also effectively discredited Ben Fellows, Bill Maloney & Chris Fay.

CONFUSION

SIMON DANCZUK: The incumbent Rochdale MP who has recently written a book about Cyril Smith & has been dangling the Parliamentary Privilege carrot before the slavering masses, despite the fact that MP’s have already been warned not to use it in case it jeopardises any future prosecutions.

magnificentseven3

Tim Laughton and Zac Goldsmith

TIM LOUGHTON: Ex Tory Child Minister. Sacked from the job in 2012 and in March 2013, it was revealed that Loughton had been investigated and interviewed under caution in relation to a complaint made under the Malicious Communications Act from a constituent.

ZAC GOLDSMITH: Tory Back Bencher/Journalist. In 2006 considered to be one of Camerons rising stars. Multi claims against him for expenses dipping etc. In 2012 said he’d quit his job if the Tories went ahead with building a third runway at Heathrow Airport.

magnificentseven4

John Hemmings and Tessa Munt

JOHN HEMMINGS: A vocal and highly visible champion of Berlinda McKenzie, [IRAN AID Charity Mystery], the suspiciously ever-present Sabine McNeill, and is also a business associate of ex-Jersey Senator Stuart Syvret. Known for his eccentricity and his well-documented love life, which boasts of at least 29 extra-marital affairs. He is not so well known, however, for being suspended from the Mumsnet website for publishing the personal details of some members, and also using the forum after he had been drinking.

TESSA MUNT: Claimed single persons council tax discount whilst living in a property with others, including a local GP, the broadcaster Andy Kershaw and the media adviser for the family of Madeleine McCann, the council cleared her of any wrong doing, but she still had to pay the money back.

Caroline Lucas

Caroline Lucas

CAROLINE LUCAS: Ex leader of the Green Party. Stood down as leader in 2012, “In order to broaden opportunities for the range of talent in the party and to raise the profiles of others aspiring to election”. Is attaching herself to this cause an attempt to raise her own profile ? She also declined to comment on questions put to her about Geo-Engineering (Chemtrails) which would ordinarily be a high priority issue for a supposed ‘Green’ MP and Environmental Campaigner.

Childhood Sexual Abuse is a current red-hot political potato, if you consider the numbers of politico’s and their associates, who’s names keep cropping up, again and again.

Can anyone remember Anne Clwyd MP’s call for a similar enquiry ?

CLWYD BE THEY NAME

‘Historic Childhood Abuse’, (the clue is in the name), is an issue which has been around long enough for anyone, let alone the nations’ moral guardians, to have been more than aware of, so would have had ample time and every opportunity to get behind.

Plus, unless you have been living on a secluded island for the last few years, a general election is less than a year away, which although there will be some who still refuse to see it, the announcement of this call for action is very significant.

Most of the previous child abuse investigations/enquiries, also appear to have been set up within two years leading up to a General Election.

An electioneering politician can be many things, one of those things, however, is certainly not being somebody with purely altruistic motives.

Not when there are votes to be had.

Do the people of this country really have such short memories ?

Does this picture ring any bells perhaps ?

magnificentseven6

That stark reflection of the urgency, or lack of, that was placed on this issue only a short while ago in the House of Commons, was certainly picked up on social networks and concerns were raised on the David Icke Forums too as I remember.

magnificentseven8So why the sudden turnaround ?

Why are these Internet Anti-Abuse ‘Warriors’ now attempting to persuade anyone who will listen, to “write to their MP’s to get them behind this issue as a priority” ?

I have even seen a self-titled “Anti-Political Writer and Anarchist” Tweeting the same message, over and over again, which surely poses it’s own questions.

And what kind of enquiry are they hoping to bring about ?

Another Waterhouse perhaps ?

Or a completely new, although not completely ‘Independent’ panel populated by establishment darlings like Esther Rantzen, Edwina Currie, David Rose, Daniel Finkelstein and maybe even the erstwhile Suzanne Nundy, AKA Anna Raccoon ?

As I see it now, around a third of this country are now so anti-establishment, they voted for right-wing, untested, political raiding parties, while the rest stood around bleating and muttering about the chaos and divisions created by the others.

Yet, a few days later, they are calling on the same people they do not trust to run their country, fully expecting them to deal with a highly emotive and delicate issue like childhood sexual abuse, and also with the required sensitivity and levels of professionalism expected.

Is that correct?

Because nothing would surprise me any more.

It’s about time that the people of this country decided what they really want from those, they blindly continue to elect and represent them.

Or even start to question, exactly how much establishment and political influence drives these particular online campaigns, and effectively permeate the more heavily populated social networks and Forums.

You may then get your answer.

But you will not like it, I can assure you of that.

It would also be wise to remember, that the ultimate victory the original seven Samurai enjoyed, relied heavily on the support and participation of the townspeople who’s own lives and children’s futures they were defending.

Can you, in all honesty see that happening in this country today ?

It may prove useful to remember that on the 18th December 2013, 294 UK MPs voted against Labour’s request to hold an investigation into Hunger and Food Poverty in the United Kingdom.

The official number of deaths, between 2007 to the present (according to official figures) by way of suicide, in and around the small town of Bridgend, south Wales is 79.

However, local knowledge puts it at 98, but the true figure according to my source, currently stands nearer 110.

Among those numbers, only one is known to have left a ‘suicide’ note?

What is strange is that nearly all of them, were discovered hanging, with their feet touching the ground or on their knees.

You did not see that small, but important fact being reported in the mainstream media did you?

On the subject of facts, it’s another fact that you will struggle to find anything written at all about this ongoing ‘event.’

The local MP, Madeline Moon went as far as announcing that the media were ‘a part of the problem,’ which again, points towards a suppression of information being made available.

For instance, did you know that many of those who died were young women?

Ordinarily, females are known to take an overdose, or slash their wrists when attempting suicide.

Hanging oneself is an unusual practice by females, and hanging oneself while remaining kneeling is very unusual indeed, under any circumstances.

The last suicide by way of hanging, (not common knowledge) was of a 23-year old girl, from the Brynmenna area of Bridgend, in October 2013.

The deaths are still continuing, even though they are not being reported, make no mistake about that.

bridgend4

So why would a phenomenon believed to be a cluster of ‘Copycat Suicides’ commonly known as the ‘Werther Effect’, affect more than 100 people in such a localised geographical area?

THE WERTHER EFFECT

Why also would this unusually high number of suicides, end their lives in such a similar manner?

At its height, the Bridgend Suicides were clustered closely together and believed to have radiated outward from a single “Patient Zero,” a high school student.

When his friends and classmates began to follow suit, it was a disturbing if not wholly unexplainable series of deaths.

However, when other Bridgenders, normally unconnected to such levels of contagious teenage despair, began to take their own lives in the same exact manner, the locals became understandably alarmed.

Reports of perfectly happy and contented individuals, many of whom were looking forward to future plans, suddenly began hanging themselves from trees, rafters, doorways etc…

And still no reasonable official explanation was being offered.

According to my source, who incidentally, was threatened with arrest and the confiscation of his mobile phone and computer if he continued asking questions, the South Wales Police are especially averse to any critisism or questions regarding this matter.

tetra radio

For a specific example, asking if there is any connections between the suicides and the TETRA emergency radio system, will bring you the kind of attention you would not believe.

The TETRA system, which is used by the police and emergency services in the UK for communication, uses between 380 and 400 MHz, which is switched on and off at such a pulse rate that a pseudo-ELF of 17.6 Hz (17.6 times per second) is produced.

This means the brain and nervous system are hit by pulses of UHF (USA terms) microwave (UK terms) every 1/17.6th of a second.

This has a similar effect as having electrochemical hammer blows to the head at a rate of 17.6 every second.

If you would find the sound of constant hammer drills irritating to listen to, try and imagine 17.6 hammer-like blows per second being delivered to the nervous and endocrinal system, at a cellular level.

tertra

What kind of effect could this have on the organism subjected to it?

Since human cells communicate to each other in the ELF range, these hammerlike blows of pseudo-ELF, disrupts and derange cellular activities, leading to dysfunction, behavioural changes and onset of carcinogenic proteins which can lead to the affected organism developing tumours.

The UK Government has been considering spending £2.5 million to fully implement a nation-wide deployment of this system.

The TETRA system pulses at 17.6 Hz, broadcast at 400 MHz, which is essentially identical to the ‘Pandora Project’, which was funded by the CIA in the late ’60s and early ’70s.

PROJECT PANDORA

Dr Ross Adey, the chief researcher on the Pandora Project has released a video to leading UK researchers which proves that not only does the TETRA system cause ELF zombification by massive release of calcium ions in the cerebral cortex and the nervous system, but the activated calcium ions also cause massive hormonal disturbances which lead to frenzied imbalances, emotional and physical states.

This system will be used by all UK police and emergency services, as the Home Office has sold off all police frequencies, so they will have no choice than to to use the new system.

Will use of the TETRA system by the police, lead to psychotronicaly controlled officers who may be totally controlled in any situation?

That could prove useful for incidences of economic or social chaos, where extreme and violent behaviour is needed without any conscious or moral compunction I would think.

Would it also explain the often referred to ‘Robotic’ behaviour of those police officers involved in such situations?

30,000 transmitters will be placed around the country to maximise the effects on the local UK population – in essence, a not-so subtle form of mass mind control.

What other explanation would there be for anyone who has complained about these transmitters, to receive a letter from the Government informing them that:

“If the transmitters are not positioned where the Government wishes, there can be no guarantee of police protection, which will lead to higher insurance premiums for the affected householder.”

(I am trying to obtain one of those letters in order to confirm this)

A leading UK newspaper did try to run this story, but the item was ‘shelved’ allegedly.

“The history of mind control at a distance, remote mind control technology (RMCT) began in America with the research of Dr Ross Adey and his colleagues in the late ’60’s, working on the CIA-funded Pandora Project.”

Adey found that ELF (extremely low frequency) signals on the region of 1-20 Hz (with 0.1 increments having different effects), had bioactive and psychoactive effects. The research was important to the CIA for they wished to find frequencies which could mind control humans from a distance (RMCT).

Pandora researchers discovered that the 6-16 Hz region had drastic effects on brain and on nervous and endocrinal systems.

This could enable major dysfunction in the target victim if research on cats and monkeys could be duplicated – the research on human victims still remains classified”.

DEATH TOWERS

SOUTHWALESAWAKENING.ORG

ARE THE BRIDGEND SUICIDES LINKED TO MOBILE PHONE MASTS

This morning, my attention was drawn to a short Twitter exchange that appeared on my timeline.

The Conservative ex-Junior Health Minister, Edwina Currie, was asked a question which referred, (I assume) to the recent revelations that it may soon become a legal requirement to report any instances of Child Abuse.

Ms Currie was then asked “Wouldn’t the paedophile MP Peter Morrison had been convicted if you and other MP’s had reported him as a Noted Pedarist.”

To which Ms Currie replied “But you need evidence. dates, times, places, names. I had none, nothing. But that’s the label he carried.”

I then asked her “That did not prevent you from using the very same ‘unproven’ information to promote your book, eh Edwina?”

I received no response, at the time of writing.

I felt that question was justified as on the 25th November 2012, David Icke published a widely reproduced extract from Edwina Currie’s Diaries 1987-1992 on his website, in which she outed Peter Morrison as a ‘noted pederast’:

DAVID ICKE HEADLINES 25th November 2012

Reproductions of the same quote can only be found online, on various forums and blogs, so I needed a definitive version.

Copies of Edwina Currie’s Diaries 1987-1992 can easily be sourced online, I did a quick search on both Amazon and eBay and found copies available from £0.01 and up to £11.01 for the hardback edition.

AMAZON

On page 195 of the hardback edition, it reads, verbatim:

“One appointment in the recent reshuffle has attracted a lot of gossip and could be very dangerous: Peter Morrison has become the PM’s PPS. Now he’s what they call a ‘noted pederast’, with a liking for young boys; he admitted as much to Norman Tebbit when he became deputy chairman of the party but added’ ‘However, I’m very discreet’ – and he must be! She either knows and is taking a chance, or doesn’t; either way, it’s a really dumb move. Teresa Gorman told me this evening (in a taxi coming back from a drinks party at the BBC) that she inherited Morrison’s (woman) agent, who claimed to have been offered money to keep quiet about his activities. It scares, me as all the press know, and as we get closer to the election someone is going to make trouble, very close to her indeed.”

So where did David Icke get his much-repeated quote from?

I ask this as the entry above clearly shows far more explosive revelations.

Namely, Norman Tebbit is named as having been told by Peter Morrison himself that he was a pederast.

Teresa Gorman is named as also being privy to this information.

Morrison’s agent was also alleged to have been paid to keep quiet about his activities.

The diaries were published in 2002 so why has none of this ever surfaced in the media?

Also, if the diaries had been readily available for at least ten years, why would David Icke not bring attention to what was clearly a far more damning revelation on his website in 2012?

It’s not as if it was covered up, or hidden from view, the book had been out there for a decade and a cursory read would have given even the laziest researcher far more.

It should also be noted that Peter Morrison was named by more than one person who identified him as being a visitor at various care homes in North Wales.

Rod Richards, a former Conservative MP and ex-leader of the Welsh Tories, who made the shocking allegation that he had seen evidence linking Sir Peter Morrison to the North Wales children’s homes case, in which up to 650 children in 40 homes were sexually, physically and emotionally abused over 20 years.

DAILY MAIL Former Minister says Thatcher aide Paedophile preyed on boys

So if all these people were privy to this ‘open secret,’ why was nothing done at the time?

I found this among some documents recently. I believe it was given to every man and boy who worked in the coal Industry during the Second World War. My own father was a Bevin Boy and all his brothers served overseas in the British Army and Merchant Navy.

All saw active service and some were seriously wounded at Dunkirk and further into Europe and beyond during the conflict, these men played a big part in my education as a young boy, I learned from those who had first-hand experience of both the physical cost of war and the mental onslaught of the propaganda from both sides.

It makes interesting reading.

A Message to British Pitmen

How the miner can beat Hitler.

Will Lawther’s Call to YOU

FELLOW MEMBERS,
Dai Grenfell, M.P., one of yourselves, as Secretary for Mines, appeals as a Miner to Miners for two things.

1. Constant attendance at your work.

2. The utmost amount of coal that could be obtained when you are there.

There is no need for me to stress the urgent necessity for this twofold task. We are at war against the menace described by Alexis Nikolenko, President of the Don Bas Miners, U.S.S.R., at the Annual Conference of the Mineworkers’ Federation at Whitley Bay on July 12th, 1938.

“Fascism,” he told us, “attempts to destroy all democratic liberties and to establish a regime of medieval barbarity and oppression of the toiling masses… Before the eyes of the whole world the Fascists are destroying with impunity the peaceful people’s, are inhumanely annihilating hundreds of thousands of defenceless children. Women and the aged, are razing to the ground peaceful cities and villages and are destroying priceless values of world culture.

“The working-class of whatever country, including the Miners of Great Britain, must grasp the simple truth that they have no guarantee that to-morrow swarms of Fascist chasers and bombers will not bomb workers’ quarters.”

What he forecast has come to pass. Put into your language it means that the ideas, the force, the venom behind Hitler has brought tragedy and disaster to your fellow Miners in Germany, in Austria, in Czecho-Slovakia, in Poland, in Holland, Belgium, Luxemburg and France. Trade Unions are wiped out, the Co-operative movement destroyed. All that they had built over the years of sacrifice, of striving, went out when these hordes of Nazi murderers entered their lives.

To-day the Miners of all these nations live in slavery. In their hour of need you helped them with money, with goods; you provided some of them with new homes overseas. Who amongst you can ever forget that human document issued in 1935 by Ebby Edwards, the General Secretary of the Mineworkers’ Federation? He described the unspeakable outrage committed by the Nazi’s when they did to death Fritz Husemann, President of of the Miners International, who’s only crime was that he had kept intact the German Miner’s Union. Because there may be one doubter amongst you as to what would be your fate if the Nazi’s ruled, read this carefully.

This is how Ebby Edwards described Husemann’s death:

“His faithfulness to the principles of our movement was punished by the Hitlerites giving him a continuous journey from one concentration camp to another. On his release a while ago, he was reported to have made known the inner and most secret methods of terrorisms employed at the Nazi concentration camps, and he continued to fight to secure compensation for miners, who because of their independence, had been dismissed by the forces of Dictatorship. For this spirit of sturdy independence he was called to answer before the ‘Gestapo’. During cross-examination he said openly that he would permit none to usurp his right of opinion. The night following his examination before the ‘Gestapo’ a number if Nazi’s penetrated into the apartment occupied by out comrade Husemann, and beat him until he lost consciousness. The family, on arrival the next day, were denied the right to see him. They were sent away, being told that Husemann had made his will, and that he did not wish to see his family any more. It is supposed that in the middle if the night Comrade Husemann was beaten to death, and that in order to veil the brutal murders, his body was transported to the Bordermoor concentration camp. A few days later the family was informed that Husemann had been ‘shot while endeavouring to escape’.

That was what the Nazis did to a German ex-soldier five years ago. You know that they have not improved. Like vultures they seek more and more to devour all they hate. By the very liberty we cherish, the freedom we possess, the priceless heritage of Trade Unionism that has been handed down to us, we must do all in our power to resist. The line of resistance that we have been called to occupy is to see that nothing is left undone to produce more and more coal.

There is not a man or boy employed in the pits who would not offer all he possessed if his mate was in danger, whether it was from a fall of stone or an explosion. Your only thought would be: “How can I help?”

Your fellow miners in the continent have been overwhelmed by an explosion, the likes of which no man had ever contemplated. The gangsters of Hitler have let loose a fire that they imagine cannot be quelled. Your brothers, your sons have faced it, are facing it with a spirit and devotion that has stirred mankind as nothing has in our history.

The nation asks you to respond with the same grim determination to conquer. Coal is more valuable than gold in to-day’s conflict. Those of us who are entrusted with your confidence, face to-day responsibilities that others have faced in other spheres of leadership.

We know what a wonderful response there has been. It must be kept up.

There is no question of two different sides in this industry to-day. Owner’s of pits, miners and officials are in one side. Hitler is on the other.

Action, as always, is the deciding factor in these struggles. You cannot get a road through stone except by blasting it out. You will not get rid of Hitlerism unless we have the stronger force. Coal is one of the most decisive factors towards that end.

We cannot, and will not allow anything to stand in the way of having more coal.

In the days before September 3rd, 1939, you passed resolution after resolution urging your Trade Unions to do all in their power to make a stand against aggression. You sent a message to the German Miners:

“We declare that we will preserve our right, free association, our Trade Unions and pledge our support in your efforts to win back such freedom in your own country.”

You rant that when you sent the message to the Germans. You mean it now, because you know of their plight. You know the strength that rests in your liberty and freedom of association.

Terrible and fearful responsibility hangs over those who run away from these declarations. It would be a betrayal of every promise you have made and your word would never again be trusted.

But Miners never do that.

All that the nations asks of you is to stick to your job. Do it to the utmost when you are there – which must be very available day. Practically all of you are exempt from military service to do that job properly. The nation has granted that exemption and regards you as doing soldiers work.

Do it thoroughly.

Your difficulties and dangers in the pit none will deny are great, but no one is bombing you or shooting you while you are at it.

My appeal I know will not go unanswered. It is to hew more coal, fill more coal until victory is ours and the gangsters are no more. We say with Francis Adams:

“Who is it that talks of defeat?
I tell you that a cause like ours
Is greater than defeat can know;
It is the power of powers!
As surely as the earth rolls round
As surely as the glorious sun
Follows the great world noon-wave
Must our cause be win.
What is defeat to us?-
Learn what a skirmish tells
While the great Army marches on
To storm earth’s Hells !”

WILL LAWTHER,
President, Mineworkers Federation of Great Britain.
