Dear Mr Cameron,

I don’t write a letter a day to you because I am brave (I am not particularly brave at all), nor yet because I am afraid, or to combat fear. I do this because I know that if I do not oppose what you are doing I will have compromised myself. Let me put that another way. If I am offered stolen goods, say a computer, and decide to take the deal, I know I am complicit in crime. Even if, on a balance of probability, I feel I will get away with it, I will know I have made a moral compromise and I have to decide if that is acceptable to me.

The question then is, what’s my tipping point, where is the line, at what point will I say, ‘This far and no further?’ And that’s the point, Mr Cameron, I am by no means perfect and nor do I try to pretend otherwise, I am an ordinary guy with a very chequered history but you have crossed the line into despotism that is as heinous as it is unconscionable.

When I read that the UK, which means the UK government, abstained in the vote for the United Nations investigation into human rights violations in Gaza unleashed by Israel’s military assault, that just said it all. When push comes to shove, you stand for nothing and no one other than your own selfish ends. Such contempt for life!

It does not matter whether it is thousands dying in Britain or the people of Palestine being massacred you make no effort to protect the lives of ordinary people. As is always the case, it is not the families of the rich and powerful being wiped out, it is not your children being blown apart, it is not your fathers and mothers, grand parents or friends being persecuted, bombed or sacrificed.

Those who make war do so knowing that it is not they who will suffer the consequences. The USA actually voted against the UN investigation, the only country to do so, and I am sure I will hear and read a great deal of anti US vitriol in the coming days. Yet, it is not the USA, not the population who are at fault, as a dear friend in the USA said today, ‘Not in my name!’ it is those who inhabit the corridors of power in the White House and the Pentagon and, of course, their corporate puppet masters.

The crimes and betrayal of government are written in the blood of the fallen.

Is ‘Innocence’ work over in the UK?

Originally posted on Wrongful Convictions Blog:

For some time, the news emanating from the UK has been getting worse with regard to the potential for miscarriages of justice, with law reforms diminishing legal protections for suspects and the almost total withdrawal of legal aid for the vast majority (nevermind the current moral panic of historic child sexual abuse which is swelling the prison population). This also comes at a time when changes to the rules on who can receive compensation for miscarriages of justice have also been ‘tightened’ to the point where barely anyone will qualify. I have blogged about many of the bad news stories coming out of the UK – including forensic science mishaps and police corruption seemingly continuing unabated regardless of new regulators or complaints bodies.Justice statue

Despite what one could view as the growing IMPORTANCE therefore of ‘innocence’ work in the UK, it looks as if things may be heading in the opposite direction. Following…

The Ethnic Cleanzing of Amerika

It began over a decade ago – subtle, quiet and unnoticeable.The media played it up as the result if the drug epidemic The public accepted it with the belief they would be safer. Ten years later, the state and federal governments continue to laud its accomplishment and urge expansion of the cleansing process. with over 800,000 Black men and women in jails and prisons, the ethnic cleansing of America has become an economic strategy of Wall Street, with private prisons on the stock market.

Although FBI statistics proclaim a decline in crime, prison construction has become a growing multi-billion dollar business. Black men and women have become commodities in an industry directly representative of slavery. The 13 th Amendment to the-U.S. Constitution (“Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime … shall exist within the United States .. “) actually indicates that…

People For Schapelle Corby

 

So why did Ellison say the opposite to parliament, with the AFP and the airport coming up with totally different stories when claiming that the CCTV images did not exist? Why has Ellison made a series of demonstrably false statements about forensic testing? Why did he withhold absolutely central and life critical evidence from Schapelle Corby, her lawyer, and the Bali court? Why did he…. Read all about this man’s personal role on the following web page:

Dear Mr Cameron,

You know, trees are made almost entirely out of thin air and they have been doing it successfully for billions of years and the entire planet benefits.

The banks use the same principle of creating money out of thin air and whilst they are very, very good at it, only they do well on it. All the rest of us get is debt and we also have to pay interest charges on that debt.

In your Barbie Doll homogenised world of profit there’s no room for anything real; not nature, not people, not real work or workers and definitely not anything as imperfect as sickness and disability, unless you can turn it into profit.

What nature gives abundantly in fecundity, bankers and politicians take and parcel out the absurdity of austerity. What has become blindingly apparent is that austerity is good for business, everyone can make a buck out of austerity except the poor on whom it is imposed and who are in every way its victims.

Austerity is the whip to drive poor people to pay for business, cattle market ‘stock’ milked for every last ounce of sweat, blood and tears and then left to die clutching a food bank voucher and a phony bailiffs warrant for not paying the bedroom tax with money they don’t have.

Living with mental illness has always meant living a precarious, fragile, life. I’ve lived my entire working life knowing that there would always periods when I was too sick to work, then clawing my way, with screeching nails, up the iron hard sides of hell, back to work.

The precariousness of such a life includes the relentless demands for money, frequently money that I do not have and have no access to. I’ve wondered at times whether money, or the lack of it, constitutes a disability hate crime, just as I wonder whether the violence of poverty is a hate crime and now, whether your austerity is a hate crime? Certainly listening to the feelingless, heartless, robotic nonsense that comes out of the mouth of Esther McVey my reaction is one of revulsion and disgust at her cold, disdainful, hatred towards the poor.

I’ve been keenly observing you and your party for four years and all you are is the party for profit and there is no lie so great you will not tell it nor depth too deep you will not plumb it in order to achieve profit. Apart from that you are entirely useless.

For Immediate Release LONDON SOHO SQUARE STATIC DEMO AGAINST CHILD ABUSE on the 24th July 2014





For Immediate Release

London 23rd July 2014

LONDON SOHO SQUARE STATIC DEMO AGAINST CHILD ABUSE on the 24th July

Child Abuse organisations, charities and groups from all over the UK are gathering in central London Soho Square for a static protest on a number of issues related to Child Abuse.

This is to protest against Child Abuse, forced adoption, institutional abuse, and missing children and many other worthy issues. According to the events Facebook Page “Come Clean On Child Abuse” It is not a protest march, but is a silent “static protest” against Child Abuse and the series of Child Abuse scandals that have been covered up in the UK.

According to Andy Peacher of Freedom Talk Radio, “The Reason for this static protest is that many Child Abuse organizations, charities, groups and parents are appalled that the systemic abuse of children over many years can simply be covered up allowing paedophiles and networks to move on without prosecution”.

The combined groups are calling for a full public inquiry into the cover-ups of any cover up of child abuse and are calling for stiff prison sentences to be handed down to anyone responsible for instigating or taking part in a cover up where children are concerned.

This is also an advisory posted on the events Facebook page for anyone who may be attending; the emphases are on staying within the law and not to anthologist the Police. The advisory also advises the participants to avoid confrontation at all costs and to report trouble makers to the police.
