(N.B. the death penalty is not available under English Law, therefore a life sentence must be imposed. TEN YEARS AIN'T ENOUGH YOU FUCKING MORONS)

Once we finish with our indignation at the politicians for lining their own pockets, can we please save a bit of ire for the judges? They're crying out for the same treatment. A bit of rough democracy will do them some good, and teach them who they're supposed to be working for.

"On the evidence before us he has sought to address the reasons behind the commission of these offences."
What world do these judges live in, where brutally murdering two children can be treated a personal development issue?
Charlie Skelton probably felt he was in for a delightful break in Greece, covering the Bilderberg Crime Syndicate's 2009 conflab for the Guardian, but now he's been arrested twice, I reckon he's getting it. He writes:
"And then it struck me: there really ISN'T any fotografia. There's none. Not a single member of the mainstream press. Not a single newshound camera on a tripod. Nothing. Nothing is happening here. Nothing to report.
The limousines have started to arrive. Nothing to report.
They've closed off an entire peninsula. There are roadblocks. Machine guns. Nothing to report.
This is Bilderberg's 57th annual meeting. Nothing to report."

"We believe that voter apathy in the younger generations is not due to a lack of interest in political issues, but a lack of understanding. All too often you hear young people complaining that the three key parties are ‘all the same’, or that there is no choice."
Question: What lack of understanding?
Most crimes are committed by a small minority. There's no point in letting them out if they're only going to go straight back to their villainy. The law should be simple. Just keep doubling the sentence every time the criminals are convicted, and they'll get the message one way or the other.
Hell is round the corner.
“One of the simplest explanations is that it’s a laboratory escape,” (Adrian) Gibbs said in an interview with Bloomberg Television today. “But there are lots of others.”'

Judges, you fucked up. Don't try to push the blame on to the jury. They did their job, no doubt at great expense to themselves. Judges, you and the rest of your legal parasite cohort are the major barrier to justice in this country.
Not only do you look ridiculous, you are contemptible.
Drawing inspiration from Harrington, I propose the following:
Enlarge the Commons to 3000 or so members. This would reduce the number of voters represented by an MP from the current 84,500 to less than 20,000, bringing the MP far closer to the people, breaking down the party structure and most likely enabling non-party candidates to be elected. This new assembly will be the sovereign body of the nation.
Amalgamate the current Commons and Lords into one body - a Senate, which would be the debating and revising chamber. I will leave the fine print of how it is constituted for another day (what's the hurry? No one's hanging on my words!)
The first criticism that will be leveled is that my new People's Congress will be chaotic and expensive, to which I would say: its function is not to be like the Commons, where all and sundry can stand up and debate. It is to decide, not to debate, in the same way as a party conference does this. In other words, people can give speeches from the podium, but its not a free-for-all. Secondly on cost; the Congress does not have to sit throughout the year, rather meet periodically. Its members can be given a fair stipend for their efforts, but should see themselves more like councillors or magistrates rather than career politicians. Also, as a minarchist-minded man, I assert that there is no good reason for the volume of new laws being generated at present. The Law should be stripped down to its bare bones, set up on sound principles, and then left alone, save a little necessary tampering to keep it running.
The new Congress would, as the sovereign body, perform a function similar to that currently performed (we are told) by the Queen. Rather than a bill receiving the Royal rubber stamp, it would need to receive the assent of the Congress. As the Queen has never, as far as I know, refused to sign any bill, the necessity of obtaining her assent cannot be claimed to be any kind of check or balance on executive power. 3000 people of good will, drawn from the population would be much more effective.

"How crucial Balochistan is to Washington can be assessed by the study "Baloch Nationalism and the Politics of Energy Resources: the Changing Context of Separatism in Pakistan" by Robert Wirsing of the US Army think-tank Strategic Studies Institute. Predictably, it all revolves around Pipelineistan.
China - which built Gwadar and needs gas from Iran - must be sidelined by all means necessary. The added paranoid Pentagon component is that China could turn Gwadar into a naval base and thus "threaten" the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean.
The only acceptable scenario for the Pentagon would be for the US to take over Gwadar. Once again, that would be a prime confluence of Pipelineistan and the US empire of bases.
Not only in terms of blocking the IPI pipeline and using Gwadar for TAPI, control of Gwadar would open the mouth-watering opportunity of a long land route across Balochistan into Helmand, Nimruz, Kandahar or, better yet, all of these three provinces in southwest Afghanistan. From a Pentagon/NATO perspective, after the "loss" of the Khyber Pass, that would be the ideal supply route for Western troops in the perennial, now rebranded, GWOT ("global war on terror").
During the Asif Ali Zardari administration in Islamabad the BLA, though still a fringe group with a political wing and a military wing, has been regrouping and rearming, while the current chief minister of Balochistan, Nawab Raisani, is suspected of being a CIA asset (there's no conclusive proof). There's fear in Islamabad that the government has taken its eye off the Balochistan ball - and that the BLA may be effectively used by the US for balkanization purposes. But Islamabad still seems not to have listened to the key Baloch grievance: we want to profit from our natural wealth, and we want autonomy.

Consequently, I shall be perusing this collection of articles by Ellen Hodgson Brown, author of 'Web of Debt'.

Not exactly Watergate, more indicative of the majoresque collapse of Gordon von Brown's juncto.

The Fabian Society represents the worst aspects of socialism; control-freak social engineering, un petit pas from Fritz Lang Metropolis-style scientific dictatorship. If the housing estates are indeed 'social concentration camps', they have achieved their purpose, as envisaged by earlier Fabians.
Gun Owners of America know what time it is.
"The military has NO BUSINESS policing the citizens except during extraordinarily exceptional times of national emergency by an executive order. This is very disturbing and completely un-American. Maybe even more disturbing is that no one seems to care how quietly and easily we have accepted the burgeoning police state."

"Spy chiefs are already spending hundreds of millions of pounds on a mass internet surveillance system, despite Jacqui Smith's announcement earlier this week that proposals for a central warehouse of communications data had been dumped on privacy grounds.
Sources with knowledge of the project said contacts have already been awarded to private sector partners."
He is following a blueprint, laid out in documentation at the OECD, which clearly outlines how all Western States should be approaching PFI, local authority outsourcing, regional funding, cross border equalisation of fiscal policies, Target driven policies including the KPI's to be measured and most contentious of all, Tax Policy. OECD has even planned out how your family should be structured and planned by their Directorate of Employment, Labour and Social Affairs.'
