It’s a story that seemed to suddenly blow up out of nowhere. And it resulted in Pritti Patel being called back from Nairobi to meet with the Prime Minister – after which she immediately resigned from office.

The reason, we are told, was a breach of protocol – Patel had failed to inform the appropriate government departments of unofficial meetings she had had with various Israeli officials.

But two different narratives emerged immediately. (more…)

It is not all that often that something happens that seems to conveniently bring together so many of the different subjects I’ve been talking about recently.

In this case, concerning Theresa May and the DUP, this article manages to string together multiple subjects I’ve been posting about previously, including false-flag terrorism, MI5 and state collusion with terrorist activity, the ‘Secret Courts’ that Britain introduced in 2013 (which was alluded to in the Police State piece), and even the creeping rise of international fascist networks that I covered at great length in an article called ‘Seeds of Fascism‘.

The immediate fall-out from the June 8th election has actually brought all of these subjects into one extraordinary ‘tag cloud’ that I hadn’t anticipated – and which I will try to explain here. (more…)

And, if there was any doubt, Theresa May herself confirmed it in recent days.
Forget about ‘Brexit’ – this election has much more at stake than that. If anyone is thinking of not voting at all – please think again.

All of the pieces have been carefully moved into place over several years – and Theresa May has been at the heart of all of it.

One of the most important of these was the introduction of ‘Secret Courts’ (under the ‘Justice and Security’ legislation) under the Tory government in 2013. Another was the Investigatory Powers Bill (Snoopers Charter): the mass surveillance programme that Mrs May was trying to introduce for years and finally did in January this year.

Another is the Draconian law being proposed to deal with whistleblowers and journalists and their criminalisation.

And now we have Mrs May openly saying she needs to push aside human rights laws in order to combat terrorism. (more…)

I had a thought in recent days – concerning the June 8th election.
And then I had a look online and realised other people had been having the same thought: specifically, the possibility that Theresa May and the Tories are deliberately hoping to lose this election.

It had been occurring to me for some weeks – as bad Tory policies and missteps continued to add up. But the point where it went from being a random musing to a more serious thought was when FOX HUNTING was suddenly in the news and on the Tory agenda again – which felt like a totally random and entirely unnecessary piece of time-travel (and a very odd thing to revive at a time when you’re trying to secure votes and strengthen your mandate).

The Prime Minister then skipping the Leaders Debate last night (and in general refusing to debate with Jeremy Corbyn) seemed to add to this suspicion. (more…)

Theresa May’s sudden call for a General Election – to be held on June 8th – caught many by surprise.

Having previously said on multiple occasions that she didn’t intend to hold another election, she suddenly changed her mind.

The question is why. (more…)

Michael Heseltine, the veteran Tory politician and reformist, said – just a day after the EU Referendum – that Brexit would provoke the “greatest constitutional crisis in modern times”.

He wasn’t wrong – as recent events are demonstrating. The idea of a quick, ‘Hard Brexit’ (which sounds like a sexual euphemism, but isn’t) has probably gone out of the window with the highly contested judicial verdict that is trying to limit Theresa May’s ability to trigger Article 50 without parliamentary approval.

So how’s everyone liking ‘Brexit’?
Well, one of the immediate results of David Cameron‘s consultation with the British people is for an unelected Prime Minister who most people seem to have forgotten is hell-bent on turning Britain into a Mass Surveillance State.
