Comment @ TAP: There is one silver lining to this cloud. The government’s censorship must have been so good that the parliament petitions committee did not realise the significance of a petition presented to them =

“We require Lord Kilmuir’s letter to Edward Heath be debated in parliament”. The letter can be read from a link on this site.

If this petition gets to 10,000 before 23rd June, the government has to comment on it. This should release those previously censored as the letter’s existence would be acknowledged on a government’s own site.

The problem is that the petition has such a boring and obscure title and more importantly even the so called alternative media with the notable exception of Don Hank and Rodney Atkinson whose site “Freenations” promotes it. Rodney Atkinson was the man who together with Norris McWhirter took John Major…

Pathology services at Princess Royal University Hospital will be moved to Kings College Hospital and run by Viapath, a company jointly owned by Serco and Kings College NHS Trust, effectively part-privatising the service.

Two Reading GP practices have been taken over by OneMedicalGroup.


The Kentmere Unit, a mental health ward at Westmorland General Hospital in Kendal, will shut next month. The trust says that the closure is “temporary” while they consider “alternative options”.

A GP practice in Melton Mowbray has had to stop some community-based services for the elderly due to CCG funding cuts. Patients will now have to travel to Leicester, Loughborough or Oakham to receive the services.


A petition signed by 1.8 million people has been delivered to Downing Street in protest at plans by the government to cut the community pharmacy budget by £170m which could potentially close 3,000 pharmacies across…

Vote Leave

Stop Making Sense

Enrico Tortolano, Campaign Director for Trade Unionists against the EU (TUAEU), writes for Open Democracy:

No one is prospering in the European Union these days except the super-rich. Unemployment has rocketed to almost 23 million and under-employment is rife. The jobs that do exist are low paid and insecure; our pensions are being haemorrhaged and our personal debt has reached astronomical levels. We live from week to week, struggling to pay the rent or mortgage, energy bills, phone bills, rail fares and childcare.

This is a world away from Jacques Delors’ land of milk and honey that he promised to the TUC in 1988. Of course his Social Europe offering was always a fairy-tale destined to have an unhappy ending, but our movement was still recovering from the 1984/85 miners’ strike and the 1986 Wapping dispute. His words were a refreshing change from the cold ferocity of Thatcher’s Tories perhaps…

Vote Remain and each person will have to pay tax to the EU.

Vote leave to be in control, Brexit.


The move, dubbed “yet another signpost to Superstate”, followed the decision by the EU Parliament’s economic affairs committee to rubber stamp a plan by Commissioners to create a “common corporate consolidated tax base”. 

In the biggest threat to sovereignty, the plan also calls for the EU to take over member states’ corporate taxation powers with a common corporation tax base, banning sovereign states from increasing their competitiveness by cutting corporation tax below 15 per cent.

Speaking last night Steven Woolfe MEP, UKIP’s financial affairs spokesman who sits on the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee of the European Parliament, said: “After months of keeping their Superstate ambitions under wraps, the mask has finally slipped.

“These plans demonstrate the risks of remaining in a club which has grand plans to supersede nation states and create a United States of Europe with a fully-fledged continental wide tax system.

“If we stay in the…

The Daily SheepleOver 100 Freedom of Records Act (FOIA) requests have finally forced the euphemist US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to admit a widely used vaccine preservative is the equivalent of a neurological armageddon.

With help from PhD Scientist and Biochemist, Brian Hooker, the agency has finally had to reveal that they have known for years that thimerosal, which was banned in 1999, but still used in over 60 vaccines, causes autism. Robert F. Kennedy has been trying to alert the public of the same troublesome findings that Hooker has unveiled, but he is often dismissed, or worse, made into a media fool by the pharmaceutical industry.

What is Thimerosal and Why Should I Care?

Thimerosal is a mercury-based vaccine adjuvant (preservative) that causes a number of brain-injuring problems, with autism among them. Thimerosal is also a human carcinogen, mutagen, and teratogen that also interrupts the immune system and…

‘Tony Blair has suggested that he will refuse to accept the verdict of the Chilcot inquiry if it accuses him of committing Britain to invading Iraq before he told parliament and the public.’

So you cares what Tony Blair will accept ot not, we will all make up our own minds on what we believe of Tony Blair.

Stop Making Sense

Andrew Sparrow reports for The Guardian:

Tony Blair has suggested that he will refuse to accept the verdict of the Chilcot inquiry if it accuses him of committing Britain to invading Iraq before he told parliament and the public.

In an interview on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show on Sunday, the former prime minister said he did not think anyone could say he did not make his position clear ahead of the 2003 war that led to the toppling of Saddam Hussein.

Sir John Chilcot is due to publish his long-awaited report into the war on 6 July. It is expected to be highly critical of Blair and other political and military figures. During the inquiry hearings there was particular focus on evidence suggesting Blair had given a firm commitment to back President George W Bush’s decision to invade while he was publicly saying a final decision had not yet been…
