- Gareth Williams’s body was found in a bag at his London flat five years ago
- Spy illegally hacked into secret data on former U.S. president Bill Clinton
- Personal voicemail messages left by the spy were deleted after he died
The British spy whose body was found padlocked inside a bag in his flat had illegally hacked into secret data on former U.S. president Bill Clinton, it has been revealed.
Gareth Williams, 31, was discovered in a holdall in the bath at his London home five years ago this month, but the mystery surrounding his death has never been solved.
Today, it has been revealed the spy had dug out a guest list for an event Clinton was due to attend as a favour for a friend. Continue reading »

“A great article showing how that disproportionate domination of British Politics by zionist jews dictates the direction of UK.”
– Zionism in Britain: a Neglected Chronicle (CounterPunch, April 28, 2015):
By the worst means, the worst. For mine own good,

Jeremy Corbyn is a longtime British Labour MP, hitherto little known outside Britain. Following the resignation of Labour leader Ed Miliband, Corbyn is one of four MPs who have nominated in the leadership contest, currently subject to ballot amongst Party members and supporters until 10 September.
Corbyn has been subject to a tsunami of criticism and abuse since his nomination, providing abundant evidence on the odious character of the current British political establishment and on the farce that is curiously labeled the democratic process.
Moreover, Corbyn, supporter of the Palestinian cause, has experienced full guns blazing from official British Jewry. On 12 August, the Jewish Chronicle broadsided with ‘The key questions that Jeremy Corbyn must answer’. With the emphasis on ‘must’. Continue reading »
According to McBride,
We were close enough in 2008 and what’s coming is on 20 times that scale.
– We Are All Preppers Now (ZeroHedge, Aug 28, 2015):
Damian McBride is the former head of communications at the British treasury and former special adviser to Gordon Brown, erstwhile Prime Minister of the U.K. Yesterday he tweeted some surprising advice in response to the plunge in global equities markets.;
Advice on the looming crash, No. 1: get hard cash in a safe place now; don’t assume banks & cashpoints will be open, or bank cards will work.
Crash advice No. 2: do you have enough bottled water, tinned goods & other essentials at home to live a month indoors? If not, get shopping.
Crash advice No. 3: agree a rally point with your loved ones in case transport and communication gets cut off; somewhere you can all head to.
Evidently, McBride interprets the wipe-out of over $3 trillion in total global market cap during the three-day rout as a prelude to a much broader and deeper financial crash that will precipitate civil unrest. Continue reading »

– New Poll Results Show – 37% of British Workers Think Their Jobs are Meaningless (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Aug 13, 2015):
Earlier this year, I highlighted an excellent article by David Graeber in the post: A Practical Utopian’s Guide to the Coming Collapse – David Graeber on “The Phenomenon of Bullshit Jobs”. Here’s an excerpt:
Graeber’s argument is similar to one he made in a 2013 article called “On the Phenomenon of Bullshit Jobs”, in which he argued that, in 1930, economist John Maynard Keynes predicted that by the end of the century technology would have advanced sufficiently that in countries such as the UK and the US we’d be on 15-hour weeks. “In technological terms, we are quite capable of this. And yet it didn’t happen. Instead, technology has been marshalled, if anything, to figure out ways to make us all work more. Huge swaths of people, in Europe and North America in particular, spend their entire working lives performing tasks they believe to be unnecessary. The moral and spiritual damage that comes from this situation is profound. It is a scar across our collective soul. Yet virtually no one talks about it.” Continue reading »
– “Minority Report”-esque Big Brother Billboards are Coming to England (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Aug 10, 2015):
Much of the shift is being driven by today’s enhanced data-collection and analysis power. Ocean’s three new billboards in Birmingham, shaped like large human eyes, will broadcast ads like regular digital billboards, but have the ability to change based on how many of a certain group are within “eyesight” of the camera.
But software will analyze the feeds to pick up facial features and how long a person looked at an advertisement, according to Olivier Duizabo, chief executive of Quividi, the company that made the software.
– From the Wall Street Journal article: England to Roll Out Tailored Billboards
I assume many of you have seen the movie Minority Report. For those who haven’t, there’s a famous scene during which the protagonist, John Anderton, who works in the department of Precrime, walks through a mall and is bombarded with personalized billboards. The year is 2054. If what is happening in England is any indication, it’s not going to take anywhere near that long.
Before getting into today’s story, here’s the relevant clip from the movie: Continue reading »

“Hope on the horizon?”
A Labour leader breaking with the past 14 years of disastrous UK wars will provide a huge problem for David Cameron’s warmongering.
– Will shockwaves if Jeremy Corbyn becomes Labour leader include the trial of Tony Blair? (Stop The War Coalition, Aug 5, 2015):
A LABOUR leader who might actually support seeking justice over the illegal Iraq war? Only a few weeks ago such a thought would barely merit consideration.
The three original candidates have none of them distinguished themselves over foreign policy or of opposing foreign wars. But now, in an interview with BBC Newsnight’s Emily Maitles, frontrunner in the leadership campaign Jeremy Corbyn has made it clear that he would support such moves against Tony Blair and others involved in the prosecution of the Iraq war, if the evidence was there to suggest that they had committed war crimes.

“And we should be uncompromising – using all the means at our disposal – including military force – to hunt down these extremists …”

– British SAS Special Forces “Dressed Up as ISIS Rebels” Fighting Assad in Syria (Global Research, Aug 4, 2015):
By Stephen Lendman
On August 2, Britain’s Sunday Express newspaper headlined “SAS dress as ISIS fighters in undercover war on jihadis,” saying:
“More than 120 members belonging to the elite regiment are currently in the war-torn country” covertly “dressed in black and flying ISIS flags,” engaged in what’s called Operation Shader – attacking Syrian targets on the pretext of combatting ISIS. Continue reading »
– Revolving Door on Steroids – New Bank of England Policymaker Allowed to Retain Financial Interest in Hedge Fund (Liberty Blitzkrieg, July 31, 2015):
Can’t a guy enjoy a beautiful Friday in Colorado without being bombarded with another gigantic oligarch scam? I guess not.
Today’s article takes the revolving door theme to a whole other level. It even puts the recent revelation that law firm Covington and Burlington kept an office empty for Eric Holder while he was head of the Department of Justice to shame. You can’t make this stuff up.
New Bank of England policymaker Gertjan Vlieghe will retain a financial interest in one of the world’s biggest hedge fund firms while he sets interest rates, an arrangement that Britain’s finance ministry said posed no conflict of interest. Continue reading »

You’ll find his commentary down below.
- Operation Temperer would see troops guard key targets with armed police
- Plans drawn up by police chiefs and discussed by top Government officials
- Would be triggered by Cobra committee in event of simultaneous attacks
- Paris attacks convinced authorities military would be needed if UK hit
A top secret plan for the mass deployment of armed troops on the streets of Britain in the wake of a major terrorist attack can be revealed for the first time today.
More than 5,000 heavily armed soldiers would be sent to inner cities if Islamic State or other fanatics launched multiple attacks on British soil – an unprecedented military response to terrorism.
The plan, codenamed Operation Temperer, would see troops guard key targets alongside armed police officers, providing ‘protective security’ against further attacks while counter-terror experts and MI5 officers hunted down the plotters.
The shocking plans for ‘large-scale military support’ to the police are contained in documents uncovered by The Mail on Sunday. They have been drawn up by police chiefs and are being discussed at the highest levels of Government, but have never been revealed in public or mentioned in Parliament. Continue reading »
