Teenage soldier hailed for rescue

These are the people that matter now. Forget the Politicians.

A soldier rescued under enemy fire in Afghanistan has hailed his Military Cross-winning colleague as a lifesaver.

Captain Andy Bell, 26, paid tribute to the bravery of his teenage comrade after he dodged the bullets to stop the bleeding from two machine gun shots to his legs.

Private Alex Kennedy, 19, from Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, was awarded one of the UK's highest wartime honours for his heroics during the Helmand province firefight on June 8 last year.

Brown rallies troops for battle

Gordon Brown told Labour activists they had 22 days to persuade voters their party was "the greatest force for fairness" in Britain.

At a small campaign rally in Leeds, the Prime Minister sought to energise his party's rank-and-file as the polls showed the Tories' lead over Labour narrowing to as little as three points.

Pharmacists are selling more drugs over the counter, but is your chemist putting your life at risk?
The glossy posters are lining the pharmacy windows, the witty TV advertising campaign is in full swing and, if all goes to plan, in the weeks and months to come thousands of middle-aged men will be popping along to their pharmacist to buy Flomax MR, an over-the-counter relief for their lower urinary tract problems - a weak bladder to you and me.
But this is no government-backed health campaign aiming to reach a segment of the population which is notoriously slow at asking for medical help.
This £5 million marketing campaign is the brainchild of a pharmaceutical company trying to sell their drug.

The alarm that can save diabetics' lives (so why is the NHS rationing them?)

Obama Threatens Iran With 'All Options' Again
"The continued presence of all options on the table"; this is the disappointing message which a Nobel Peace Prize laureate dispatches internationally. In his latest interview with CBS news, American President Barack Obama refused to rule out the possibility of a military strike against Iran by harking back to the famous catchphrase of former U.S. President George W. Bush who once devised, regarding Iran's nuclear program, the popular sentence of "all options are on the table".

Here's Why The Euro Is Still In Trouble, And Greece Is Still Likely To Default
In the short run, it now seems as if the euro has been saved. Greece has received a massive infusion from the EU, its bonds are selling once again, the birds are singing and all is right with the world.

But Wolfgang Münchau makes a persuasive case that in the long run, a Greek default remains very likely. The structural adjustments required to get its budgets back into reasonable balance are simply massive (hence the demonstrations that keep turning into near-riots). That is going to require considerable austerity from the population, not to mention unemployment.

Why All the Talk About Nuclear Attacks in U.S. Cities All of a Sudden??
Just in this week alone, CNN and several other main stream media outlets have been talking or writing about the possibilities of a nuclear attack by terrorists. Just today in the following two articles, one from USA Today and the other from the Washington Times, reflect not only the media's sudden obsession with this topic, but the White House as well.

Remember, how the Illuminati pre-condition the public to accept and acknowledge certain things/events before they occur.

Obama Warns World Leaders Global Economic Crash Cant Be Stopped
According to these grim reports, Obama had called this meeting of World leaders under the guise of promoting his Global nuclear agenda but was, instead, intent on warning everyone present that after his Nation had “nothing left to give” after their unprecedented (and kept secret from the American people) nearly $422 bailout of the European Union last week.Initial reports prepared for Prime Minister Putin on US President Barack Obama’s extraordinary meeting with World leaders on the Global economic situation states that the Americans are now warning that a complete crash of the Global banking system is “all but inevitable” and “can’t be stopped”

IPCC sea level prediction – not scary enough
New research from several international research groups, including the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen provides independent consensus that IPCC predictions of less than a half a meter rise in sea levels is around 3 times too low.

The results have been published in the scientific journal, Geophysical Research Letters.

Alistair Darling explains why Labour cannot rule out a rise in VAT
Any last hope that Labour may freeze VAT seems to have vanished. The Labour Cabinet members arguing that the tax rate could be pegged nearer the election have lost their fight. Today Alistair Darling told me he will not deviate from yesterday’s refusal to rule out a rise. “We’re sticking to our pledge,” he said when I asked him if change in VAT policy was now off the table. “If you kick away any element [of flexibility in taxation] you get into trouble.”

Bercow feeling the Nigel Farage heat

liarpoliticians — 13 April 2010 — Tory (quasi-New Labour) House of Commons speaker John Bercow is starting to feel the heat in his constituency, as UKIP's Nigel Farage starts to turn up the pressure to oust Bercow, one of many who was heavily implicated in the MP's expenses scandal.

John Bercow MUST be ousted from his seat by Nigel Farage, for the sake of the claimed democracy that is left in the UK, and for the expenses scandal. It would also stir up parliament with at least one person not afraid to ask awkward questions.

Recorded from Channel 4 News, 13 April 2010.

Yesterday we were perplexed by the description of Greece's 6-month and 1-year government bills sale as 'successful'. It appeared to attract a lot of demand, but yields Greece had to pay investors were extremely high for such short-term money, for example the 1-year bill sold at 4.85% which is far higher than it was just back in mid-January.

Whilst politicians of all the major parties during the general election campaign continue to ignore the giant debt elephant in the room as the general public continue to prefer to be deluded into thinking that Britain can skip the debt crisis that faces the country as a consequence of Greecesk levels of annual deficits and foreign liabilities that have pushed Britain significantly along the path towards hyperinflation and bankruptcy (debt default to foreigners), as many of the trend projections concerning the looming debt mountain, banking and public sector's liability expectations made in November 2008 (Bankrupt Britain Trending Towards Hyper-Inflation?) have come to pass, against which NOTHING has been done or stated will be done to prevent ultimate national bankruptcy as warned of in November 2008
