Woman and child murdered in village



A woman and her 23-year-month old son were murdered in their cottage in a sleepy rural village, it has been disclosed.

Their attacker, a 44-year-old man believed to be the woman's partner or ex-partner, then killed himself at the house in Holbrook, Derbyshire.

Police said they received a call from a concerned neighbour at about 11am on Wednesday. When officers arrived at the cottage on Well Yard they discovered the 38-year-old woman and the man dead.


Taxi driver kills 12 in gun rampage

A taxi driver has gone on the rampage, killing 12 people and wounding at least 25 before taking his own life.

Derrick Bird, 52, brought terror to the idyllic Lake District as he drove his cab through the Cumbrian countryside, blasting victims through the window apparently at random.

Britain's worst mass shooting since the 1996 Dunblane tragedy began when the divorced father-of-two shot fellow taxi drivers in the town of Whitehaven, killing at least one.


Europe’s media warn of global social unrest

When Karl Marx wrote in the Communist Manifesto that “a spectre is haunting Europe,” he did so on the eve of the revolutionary eruptions that began in Italy and France in 1848 and engulfed much of the European continent.

In recent days, a number of media commentaries have predicted a similar eruption of social unrest of revolutionary dimensions as a direct result of the worsening economic crisis. These warnings are accompanied by dire predictions that Europe will suffer the return of nationalist tensions, the emergence of fascist movements and even war. more

Lisbon: Massive Demonstration Against Government

Over three hundred thousand people (more than three per cent of the Portuguese population) marched today in central Lisbon in a mega-demonstration against the socially insulting policies of the conservative, right-wing Government provided by the Socialist Party, an insult to Socialism, an insult to Government and the epitome of laboratory politics practised by professional politicians who have never had a real job. more

Bilderberg 2010: Globalists Panic Over Euro Collapse

The presence of Spain’s heavyweight political and financial leaders at this year’s Bilderberg conference is not just because the secretive annual confab is taking place just outside Barcelona – it’s because the Bilderberg elitists are panic stricken at the possibility that their embryonic global currency – the euro – could be heading for total collapse. more

Inflationary Depression Began in February 2009 - Purging Will Come

As we look forward we see money supply plunge to the same levels of the 1930s. This is the same thing the Fed did between 1929 and 1933... Unfortunately, we are following the path of the “Great Depression.” That means gold and silver are being purchased in a flight to quality. Yes, we believe inflation is on the way in bigger numbers, but unless things change dramatically it won’t be long before that inflation is overcome and deflationary depression takes hold. more

Yikes! China paying U.S. unemployment checks

The states are so broke they're borrowing from the federal government to make burgeoning unemployment insurance benefits – prompting the federal government to borrow the funds from communist China. more

Into the Abyss: The Cycle of Debt Deflation

One of the most famous quotations of Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises is that “There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as the result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency involved.” In fact, the US economy is in a downward spiral of debt deflation despite the bold actions of the federal government and of the US Federal Reserve taken in response to the financial crisis that began in 2008 and the associated recession. Although the vicious circle of debt deflation is not widely recognized, precisely what von Mises described is happening before our eyes. more

Red Alert- Stock Market Crash Imminent

You don’t have much time. I want to stress from the outset, however, that this is more than a mere forecast. It’s a solemn warning:

The U.S. stock market is showing the kind of extreme volatility and severe strains that typically precede major implosions.

There is very little time left to get your money to safety. The collapse could come at literally any moment now. more

Flotilla activists being deported

The expulsion of activists - including more than 40 Britons - detained during the storming of an aid flotilla heading for the Gaza Strip is under way.

All the 679 detainees taken off the ships during the Israeli military-led action which saw nine civilians killed will be deported within 48 hours, but about 50 will be held for questioning, a statement from the Israeli government said.

Earlier, Foreign Secretary William Hague said 31 British nationals and a further 11 with dual nationality were known to have been detained after the seizure of the vessels as they attempted to breach the Israeli blockade of the territory.


Council bans white candidates from training programme

The two-year scheme at Bristol City Council is only open to candidates from black or ethnic minority backgrounds because the "normal recruitment process was not rectifying" under-representation.

The authority said the programme, which takes on two people a year, is lawful under race relations legislation because it is only a traineeship and does not guarantee a job at the end of it.

But one white jobseeker, who did not want to be named, said it was "totally racist" and would have been "an excellent opportunity for me to make use of the skills and qualifications that I have acquired".


Schoolboy obsessed with drawing bomb picture reported to anti-terror scheme

A schoolboy obsessed with drawing pictures of bombs is among hundreds of young people who have been reported to the police as terrorism suspects.

A couple who kept their curtains closed were also flagged up to the Channel Project, an anti-terror warning programme designed to stop vulnerable people becoming radicalised.

At least £3 million has already been spent on the scheme, which was set up in the wake of the 7/7 London bombings in 2005, and more than 230 people have been identified by police as being at risk.  More....
