This is a test post


I've just been invited to join this new dynamic on line news service and would like to introduce myself. I shall attempt to bring you up to date news from the South East regional papers. Please bear with me as I'm new to cross blogging.

I feel in the main that we need to highlight what the MSM won't cover. there are a lot of stories out there that need to be covered. Remember the women fined for feeding the ducks?


The Filthy Engineer

LORD Mandelson has launched a bitter fightback against the Tories after David Cameron's election bid was given a huge boost with 23 business leaders pledging their support to the Tories.

Council Fat Cat Bosses Get More Cream Whilst Council Workers Face Unemployment
measures demand the sacking of tens of thousands of public sector workers, it seems perverse that the number of council employees earning six-figure salaries should have risen by 14 per cent.

Drinking alcohol is unlikely to have any health benefits, say cancer experts

MOST people like a bit of alcohol, so it's natural to tune in to reports about its benefits

New Documentary Exposes Move Towards Totalitarian World Government
Film maker Jason Bermas has collected a truly monumental amount of video archive and document material to render completely obsolete claims that the agenda of today’s ruling elite is not the open move towards a global totalitarian world government which will be run to the detriment of the people in the self-interests of the tiny ruling class that sit atop the power pyramid.

Nigel Farage - Eurocrats, the quiet assassins of Europe

Alex welcomes back to the show Nigel Farage, British politician, former leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party, and member of the European Parliament for the South East.

Obama's Private Army now law. Hidden in health care bill

Remember Obama saying that we need a "civilian army that is just as well trained and funded as the military"? Well, here it is. Tucked away in the middle of the over 2,000 page health care monstrosity that nobody in congress bothered to even read.

This is not just an expansion of the National Guard, no. This is a private health corp. that is to be trained by the military and will be under the direct command of the president. This is nothing short of tyranny and fascism, but many of the kool-aid drinkers will find a way to justify and defend this as well, despite the fact that it is in direct violation of the law that their beloved president took oath to uphold.

The Next Phase of the Credit Crunch and What it Means for Gold and Markets
Sovereign governments through their bailouts, stimulus packages and support, have basically become the credit markets. Hence, the one market to watch is the Treasury market. Globally, one should watch various sovereign bond markets. As a result of governments absorbing private debts (and soon to be state and local debts), the global bond market (especially US, UK and Japan) will be the next victim of the credit crunch.

Chancellor refuses to rule out benefits cuts
Chancellor Alistair Darling declined to rule out real-terms cuts to benefits payments this morning after pressure from MPs to explain how he plans to bring down the fiscal deficit.

Gordon Brown silent on Alistair Darling's 'bigger than Thatcher' cuts
Gordon Brown is giving a press conference in Brussels. He was asked whether he agreed with his Chancellor that Labour’s own figures point to bigger cuts in public spending than those made by the first Thatcher government.

This is a transcript of the Prime Minister’s answer:

Labour's spending cuts exposed
Darling has now exposed as false the Brown/Balls dividing line of "investment vs cuts". If Labour were to win, he said, the cuts would be worse than anything seen under Thatcher in the 1980s. This is Darling's problem: he's a dreadful liar. The IFS today laid out the scale of the cuts that would happen whoever wins the election, and the below graph is worth reprinting. Overall spending falls 12 percent (once dole and debt interest are taken into account). So when Darling says this is worse than anything in the 1980s, he is simply stating a fact. You'd never catch Balls or Brown doing that, by the way, and I hope that, when either pop up for interview, they will be asked if they agree with their Chancellor's assessment.

Oil price surges above $85

Sussex council bosses impose pay freeze after double digit salary boost
Council bosses have introduced a pay freeze for themselves this coming financial year after it was revealed some of them enjoyed double digit pay rises during the recession.

For the year 2008-09 West Sussex County Council chief executive Mark Hammond took home at least £220,000 – up from a maximum of £199,999 the previous year.

This represents a minimum pay rise of 10.5%.

UK police AND courts out of control (31Mar10)

A BBC Newsnight investigation into how the police "service" reacted to protesters, and how the judges dealing with the protesters ignored the law, and went completely over the top in sentencing the protesters "to teach people a lesson". This shows just how corrupt the British police "service" and the judges are.. Suppressing evidence, making up crimes that weren't committed, and sentences so severe you'd think people had committed murder or something of that nature.

New Labour have corrupted EVERY single public body, and it is deliberate.

If you are not suitably disturbed and disgusted by this news report, you need your head read.

Codex Alimentarius: Population Control Under the Guise of Consumer Protection
While the esoteric agenda of the media is busy driving fear into the hearts of the world by focusing on terrorism, global warming, salmonella, and food shortages, the real threats are clandestinely becoming a reality. Soon every single thing you put into your mouth (with the exception of pharmaceuticals, of course) will be highly regulated by Codex Alimentarius, including water. The standards of Codex are a complete affront to the freedom of clean and healthy food, yet these regulations have no legal international standing. Why should we be worried? These soon-to-be mandatory standards will apply to every country who are members of the WTO (World Trade Organization). If countries do not follow these standards, then enormous trade sanctions will result. Some Codex standards that will take effect on December 31, 2009 and once initiated are completely irrevocable include

* All nutrients (vitamins and minerals) are to be considered toxins/poisons and are to be removed from all food because Codex prohibits the use of nutrients to "prevent, treat or cure any condition or disease"

* All food (including organic) is to be irradiated, removing all toxic nutrients from food (unless eaten locally and raw).

FDA approves VeriChip for humans
Not that it will come as a surprise to anyone, but yesterday the FDA approved VeriChip to be marketed for medical purposes. Applied Digital Solutions has created an implantable computer chip to "speed vital information about a patient's medical history to doctors and hospitals." It is simultaneously being heralded as a medical milestone by some and an invasion of privacy by others. Just think of it as an invisible barcode to release information when passed over by specialized scanners. Click here to read the article.

Labour MP Confirmed that All Parties Bend Immigration Rules for Money
Channel 4’s recent programme on the “cash for influence” scandal was edited to remove a taped interview with a Labour MP who admitted that she and MPs from other parties took cash to bend immigration rules so Third Worlders could enter Britain.

The shocking revelations — which were deliberately cut out of the final broadcast — have now leaked out.

Sudden Mass American Enlightenment Puzzles Congress and Causes National Security Alert

Millions of citizens jubilantly celebrated their new awareness as they suddenly realized they have been lied to all their lives on just about everything by their psychopathic, conscienceless leaders of major corporations, government and security agencies.

Australia: leading the western world in web censorship.

The Angry Exile, Upside Down Correspondent

'There's nothing special about the internet,' Aussies are being told by Communications Minister Senator Stephen Conroy, who for some time has been promoting the idea that Australia should join nations like China, Iran and North Korea in being able to see what citizens and residents can and can't look at online. 'This argument that the internet is some mystical creation that no laws should apply to, that is a recipe for anarchy and the wild west,' says Senator Conroy, for whom child porn and other 'Restricted Classification' material are the reasons Australia needs a filter. Opponents have repeatedly pointed out that those who want to gain access to the RC material will bypass it - as Conroy himself appears to have admitted on at least one occasion - and that since the specific sites and pages being censored will be kept secret from the public the proposed filter could easily be abused by this or a future government to censor legitimate content that it dislikes. This might appeal to many governments of all hues, so perhaps should be filed under the heading of 'coming to a country near you soon'.

Left-Wing Icon: America Is Still Headed Towards Fascism Under Obama
When left-wing icon Naomi Wolf warned that America was heading towards fascism under George W. Bush, characterized by illegal surveillance, arbitrary detention of suspects, and paramilitary martial law, she was lauded, but when she continued to issue the same warning as a result of Obama’s failure to reverse any of those policies, many on the left abandoned support for her.

However, as Wolf’s recent interview with leftist website Alternet makes plain, liberals may finally be starting to understand that both political parties in Washington are part of the problem, not the solution.

Depressions Last HOW LONG?
My friendly deflationist Jas Jain called the other day to remind me we’re still in a Depression and more downside is likely to come. By his count the Great Depression really lasted almost 20-years – from 1929 to 1949. And he makes a valid point since arguably, the Korean War was a ‘transition war’ which allowed the West to more gradually transition from war machine to consumer goods machine. And since this cycle seems to have peaked out in 2000, neither one of us is very optimistic about how it all works out over coming years of the Second Depression…at least for people who are trying to retain purchasing power of their savings.

Is Blogging Useful or a Waste of Time?
Crucial for Spreading Accurate Information

A story that bloggers have bird-dogged for many months, gaining so much traction that the mainstream media is finally forced to cover it.

Rendition and the "Global War on Terrorism": 28 Nations Have Supported the US in the Detention and Torture of "Suspects"
Twenty-eight nations have cooperated with the U.S. to detain in their prisons, and sometimes to interrogate and torture, suspects arrested as part of the U.S. “War on Terror.”

The complicit countries have kept suspects in prisons ranging from public interior ministry buildings to “safe house” villas in downtown urban areas to obscure prisons in forests to “black” sites to which the International Committee of the Red Cross(ICRC) has been denied access.

Behind the Talks: US-NATO Prepare Confrontation in the Arctic
Moscow regards as inadmissible the prospects for a military presence in the Arctic region. It's no secret at all that in recent years quite a number of states in the West, including the USA, have unveiled their plans to build at least 66 warships to be used for conducting hostilities in the Arctic region.

Competition in the Arctic region is becoming more and more intense. At the conference of the five Arctic coastal states in Canada, the U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said that it is necessary to defend the interests of the countries, which also have their lawful interests in the Arctic Ocean. Mrs Clinton was speaking about Sweden, Finland and Iceland.

The Project for the New American Century
The Project for the New American Century, or PNAC, is a Washington-based think tank created in 1997. Above all else, PNAC desires and demands one thing: The establishment of a global American empire to bend the will of all nations. They chafe at the idea that the United States, the last remaining superpower, does not do more by way of economic and military force to bring the rest of the world under the umbrella of a new socio-economic Pax Americana.

A DAY after his administration failed to deport a Congolese rapist, Gordon Brown decided to make a speech on immigration control. And what a cynical performance it was.

The radio frequency identification chip will provide everyone with access to public services such as health, prescription, welfare.
