A quick post here on the Finsbury Park attack – because what I actually want to talk about more is the so-called ‘race war’ meme or the widespread predictions/fears of a ‘civil war’ type scenario on the streets of England, as well as France, the US and elsewhere.

That, however, is such a big, important and complex subject, that I just want to talk quickly and solely about Finsbury Park first – and I will publish that bigger, broader article tomorrow.

As with the June 3rd attack in London Bridge, I was listening to a couple of hours of live radio as the story was breaking. As I have a habit of leaving the radio on when I’m trying to fall asleep, I happened to hear a number of live eyewitness callers from Finsbury Park – and it is clear that this was a real incident, just as London Bridge was probably a real incident.

A lot of conspiracy theories have been floating around online about the tragic Grenfell Tower fire: I’m not really buying any of them. This horrible, terrible event looks less like ‘conspiracy’ and more a simpler case of mismanagement, apathy and criminal negligence.  

However, this article by Joseph Downing (Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS)) for The Conversation is one of the better pieces I’ve seen in response to the Grenfell travesty.

The death of 48 year old John Jones, one of the UK’s top human rights lawyers, has been labelled a suicide. British Transport Police were called to West Hampstead train station in North London on Monday morning, after reports that a man was struck by a train, having presumably jumped onto the track.

77-tavistocksquare

As the country observes commemoration of the terrible 7/7 bombings that occurred in London 10 years ago this day, what will almost certainly be missing from the mainstream coverage is any mention of how flimsy and non-credible the official narrative of those events is.
You will hear constant talk of the ‘four terrorists’ or ‘suicide bombers’ or of the ‘radicalization of British Muslims’. What you won’t hear on any of the major networks’ coverage is any mention of the ‘Terror Drill’ that was going on on the morning of 7/7, any mention of the mysterious white van parked next to the exploded No.30 bus in Tavistock Square, any reference to the mysterious death of 35 year-old Richmal-Marie Oates-Whitehead from New Zealand, any reference to why it was that all of the CCTV for the London Underground on that morning was disabled, or any reference to the fact that it was literally *impossible* for any of the four ‘suicide bombers’ to have actually been on those exploding tube-trains on 7/7.
