CLONES – SERIOUSLY?

In all conscience, I would not be able to settle if I sat back and said nothing about what may well be, one of the most misleading and wholly disingenuous mainstream media articles that I have read for many a year. I am of course, referring to something that was published earlier today, in the online version of the Daily Mirror, in regard to a recent YouTube video that was published by ex-East17 band member Brian Harvey. Now anybody reading […]

DROP DEAD RED….

Unless you happen to live in, or visit Scotland, Wales, parts of Ireland or the Isle of Wight, it is highly improbable that you would even catch a glimpse of a creature that has been a resident of the United Kingdom for millennia. That creature is the Red Squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris) and has been native to these shores since the land bridge between Britain and Europe began to disappear following the last ice age, estimated to be around 10,000 years […]

THE DEVILS INTERVAL….

“Music was my first love, and it will be my last, Music of the future and music of the past.  To live without my music, would be impossible to do And in these times of trouble – my music pulls me through” –  John Miles The greater majority of music listened to worldwide has been tuned to 440 Hertz since the International Standards Organization (ISO) endorsed it in 1953.  The fairly recent rediscoveries of the vibratory / oscillatory nature of […]

DOMINOES….

It is becoming increasingly difficult to ignore the extent to which, we, as a sovereign nation here in the UK, are being blatantly lied to, and distracted from what is really happening in the world, by the mainstream media. For those out there with little or no access to the Internet, it would prove almost impossible to get information other than what is churned out by the established news outlets, which in turn are almost entirely funded and controlled by […]

LONG TIME COMING….

Since Germany introduced border controls, dramatically halting all train traffic with Austria, a number of European countries are set to follow Germany’s lead, as it is becoming obvious that the infastructure of many European countries, simply cannot cope with the overwhelming numbers of refugees entering the European Union. Germany’s interior minister, Thomas de Maizière, had no option but to announce these measures after German officials said record numbers of refugees, the overwhelming majority of whom came from Syria – had […]

PERPETUAL WAR….

By John Avery We know that war is madness, but it persists. We know that it threatens the survival of our species, but it persists, entrenched in the attitudes of historians, newspaper editors and television producers, entrenched in the methods by which politicians finance their campaigns, and entrenched in the financial power of arms manufacturers – entrenched also in the ponderous and costly hardware of war, the fleets of warships, bombers, tanks, nuclear missiles and so on. In his farewell […]

AT ANY PRICE….

There are many western eyes watching the African content, specifically the Congo Basin. You would be forgiven for thinking, that what little media attention it gets would be focussed on the unfolding Humanitarian Crisis. Sadly, the long and bloody history of this African country will never make the pages of the newspapers, or grace the camera lenses of the Mainstream Media any time soon. You may like to ask yourselves why that would be the case. The ongoing conflict in […]

DULCE ET DECORUM EST….

The following poem was written in 1917 by a brilliant young army lieutenant while hospitalised for shell shock (now known as post-traumatic stress disorder) in Craiglockhart War Hospital near Edinburgh. It is probably the best known poem of the First World War. It describes a gas attack. Wilfred Owen, who had been sent to Craiglockhart after surviving numerous horrendous combat experiences, including being trapped in a trench under heavy fire for several days with the remains of a fellow officer.

CLWYD BE THY NAME….

Welsh Labour MP Ann Clwyd has called, along with many others, for an over-arching Inquiry into child abuse. But Ms Clwyd knows perfectly well that Inquiries don’t always get to the truth. She herself, a strong supporter of the war in Iraq, was given a very easy ride when she appeared before the Chilcot inquiry in spite of being personally responsible for disseminating an uncorroborated and later discredited story just before the crucial Parliamentary vote on the Iraq war. This […]

THE BENGAL FAMINE….

The Partition of India was the last act of the British Raj. It led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people, but it was not the worst disaster to hit India in the 1940s. That dubious honour goes to the Bengal Famine of 1942-4, which left over a million dead. It was a famine that happened with full knowledge of Britain and directly disputes the claim by the British that their ‘rule’ had eliminated famine from India. In […]
