Jenny is a boggart or water spirit who lives under the green algae that grows on stagmant pools in the North of England. She is reputed to pull in children who ignore their mothers and play near the water. Jenny says this is slanderous and a calumny (she is not pretty but is very astute and insists that the only people she ever pulls into drowning pools are deserving of their fate or very drunk.) Jenny and her friends have built this labyrinth of creative writing, drama, music to provide a unique experience, a website where the emphasis is on entertainment and the web design is focused on helping visitors who love to read, listen and be entertained will find much to appeal to their individual taste.

World Health Chiefs Say ‘Red Meat As Likely to Cause Cancer as Smoking’
Another way of looking at this article of course is to say that it is an admission by the WHO that cigarette smoking does not cause cancer, which while true is a dangerous thing to say because after non stop anti - tobacco propaganda for the past fifty years, such a statement would be open to being interpreted as meaning cigarette smoking does no harm.

Jottings On Syria, Afghanistan and Flight MH17
Some rather disturbing news about the recent US airstrike that destroyed a Medicins Sans Frontiers hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan. The first lie out of Washington (after the obligatory denial of any involvement) was that the hospital was a cover for a terrorist base, then the narrative changes and the US government said they had been misinformed about the target. Now it emerges that ...

Going To War Against The Evil Empire
Matt Drudge, and love him or hate him, nobody can seriously suggest he has been an influential figure since the early days of the world wide web, recently claimed he had been told by a US Supreme Court judge that new copyright laws currently being pushed through the United States legislative system will finish ...

Swedish Government Review Of White Genocide (Immigration) Policy Concludes That Swedes Don’t Actually Exist ... ... so its OK to give the country to a bunch of foreign terrorists whose medieval culture inclues stoning, raping and beheading women who are not servile enough, making a living from drug dealing, extortion, pimping, poncing and mugging.If you are Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, atheist or pagan, there is no future for you in Sweden because the elite are fobidding the prosecution of Muslims for crimes that are not outlawed in Sharia law.

China launches global yuan payment system
China’s Central Bank has started a global payment system which provides cross-border transactions in yuan. The China International Payment System (CIPS) intends to internationalize the yuan and challenge the US dollar's dominance.

5 suicide bombings target Chad, killing over 40 people - Boko Haram blamed.
A village in Chad, one of the world's poorest nations, was targeted by terrorists on Saturday. The village in a region of Chad that is home to thousands of Nigerian refugees forced to flee from their homes by the brutal violence of Islamic extremist group Boko Haram, was devastated by at leat five sucicide bombing attacks which killed at least 36 people and left about 50 others wounded.

Internet being ghettoized by government an corporate media, Matt Druge warns
The very foundation of the free Internet is under severe threat from copyright laws that could ban independent media outlets, according to Matt Drudge. "I had a Supreme Court Justice tell me it’s over for me,” said [Matt] Drudge, warning web users that they were being pushed "pawn-like" into the cyber "ghettos" of Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Another Oil Exporting State Surrenders: Last Nail In Petrodollar's Coffin
While record mainland deficits covered by the petroleum sector is nothing new in Norwegian budget history, the 2016 budget did raise some eyebrows. The net inflow to the Norwegian Treasury from North Sea oil will be lower than the required amount to cover the deficit. This has never happened before and is testimony of the sea change occurring in the world of petrodollar recycling.

Google: Benefactor Of Mankind Or Evil Empire (or buch of idiotic nerds who got lucky?)
They way Google has come to dominate the internet just as the internet has come to dominate our lives can't all be down to good luck and careful planning can it? As this page develops you will see how sinister forces guided Google to their current position.

Russia Is Conducting ‘Asymmetric Warfare’ In Syria Says UK Foreign Secretary
As Russian successes stack up in the middle east war against Islamic State guerillas in Syria, and the half hearted efforts of the FUKUS axis (France, UK, USA) look increasingly inept, we suggest that the western allies were never really interested in defeating ISIS, destabilisation of the entire region was their aim, so the thrust of their intervention was to overthow Assad rather than defeat the terrorists.

Council Of Europe Concerned At Rising Racism In Germay (but No Mention Of Violence And Sex Crimes Committed By Illegal Immigrants)
The European Union immigration crisis that is now affecting most of the EU's wealthy nations and some that are only just clawing their way out of poverty after independence from the Soviet Union or Yugoslavia, appears to be dividing societies more deeply and pushing many European societies towards civil conflict as the affluent, self indulgent elite, in their efforts to show how caring and politically correct they are, ...

Free Speech And The 'Black Lives Matter' Book Burners
The news that students and administrators at a Connecticut, USA, university are ‘boycotting’ the Wesleyan Argus student newspaper for publishing an op-ed that was mildly critical of some aspects of the anti-police-brutality group Black Lives Matter (BLM). Their petition reads: ‘This boycott includes recycling the Argus and demanding [its] funds… be revoked.’

Insane science: Babies to be manufactured from two same sex parents
We have said for a long time that science is out of control and scientists, particularly those in the field of biology, have abandoned any pretence of observing ethical contraints in their quest to play God and control nature itself. This articles shows just how far the sick creeps are prepared to go in dehumanising us.

Can Muslim Culture Ever Integrete With Tolerant Western Socities?
We in the developed nations are constantly told we must accept multiculturalism (Why? We never voted in favour of it?), celebrate diversity (We do celebrate diversity, there are thousands of diverse lifestyle within western societies) and adapt to accommodate the quirky but charming traditions of immigrants ...

Is USA Preparing For War Against Russia In The Baltic Region?
The US government has been making preparations for a possible war against Russia in Europe’s Baltic States, German business newspaper Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten (DWN) reports (link goes to page in original German). The report claims that all the NATO war games organized in the region by Washington have been intended to prepare various military response scenarios.

Syrian Child's Picture Goes Viral On Internet, Then Exposed As Propaganda Fraud
In the past few hours a picture purported to have been drawn and coloued by a Syrian child has prompted a knee jerk reaction from thousands of online handwringers It is a drawing that is supposed to have been given by a refugee child to the Federal Police officers processing refugee applications in the German town Passau.

The Lazy Pupil's Examination Aid.
In my school days, admittedly more years ago than I care to remember, trying to justify the non - delivery of homework projects with the excuse "please Sir, the dog ate it," was not exactly fresh and original but [ ... ] Now of course, in an era of mass communication and advanced technology it is a tired and lame excuse used as a last resort only by the terminally dull - witted. Family pets have advanced in status so much they can actually make a positive contribution to academic achievement ...

Vaccinate the World: Gates, Rockefeller Seek Global Population Reduction
Vaccinate the World: Gates, Rockefeller Seek Global Population Reduction. Being a former computer professional from back when we had to know how the things worked to program them, Bill Gates was always the incompetent amateur who got a big leg up because of his CIA connections and then made 'not fit for purpose' acceptable quality. Now this half witted shyster is playing a big role in formulating United Nations eugenics policy

Perpetual War: US Considers Keeping Troops In Afghanistan After 2016
As The Daily Stirrer has predicted since we started in 2009 that Washington's goal was perpetual war, of the kind George Orwell described in his novel 1984. Not only does war make fear - mongering acceptable as a way of controlling the population and restricting personal liberties and civil rights, it is great for business too. It should be no surprise then to learn ...

Russia's action against ISIS in Syria outwits Obama Again
Europe’s intensifying migrant crisis and Russia’s increased military support for President Assad’s regime in Syria, including the establishment of a Russian military Syrian headquarters at Latakia have focused the attention of world media and those of us who like to be aware what is going on to dangerous situation now emerging from Syria’s protracted civil war.

Merkel Hit By German Citizens Backlash As Her Anti - German, Pro - Immigration Policy Indtroduces Violence, Rape and Third World Lawlessness To Germny's Muslim Ghettos
As the lawless criminal scum imported by Merkel in her efforts to suck up to Obama threaten to turn Germany into a third world human cespit, it seems public opinion in European is waking up.

As Russia, China and Iran line up behind Assad, has the USA (and its proxies) lost the middle east war?
indications from Washington is that the Obama administration, surely suffering from collective megalomania, is determined to provoke a military confrontation with Russia, which the Harvard political science grads. are sure would bring down Putin and Medvedev and allow the west to install a bunch of right wing corporate puppets in Moscow as they did in Kiev

New GMO ‘gene drive’ technology could be used to unleash the world’s most devastating biological weapon

We told you that push to make all our food crops Genetically Modified was much more sinister than feeding the world's poor at the expense of ordinary people in developed nations. Now the real agenda is starting to be revealed.

Volkswagen Emissions Scandal - Is It The Tip Of The Iceberg?
The real problem here is that, driven by the hysterical warnings of self interested pseudo-scientists, politicians have set unachievable targets for reducing emissions while demanding that national economies keep growing.

Controlled Media Blacks out German Mass Opposition to Nonwhite Invasion

Luck Be a Tory Tonight
David Cameron is one Prime Minister that luck seems to have especially singled out for special treatment. From his election as Conservative leader in 2005, few within or without his party gave him much hope. Many senior Tories suspected he was all surface/no substance, that his privileged background was too great a break with his grammar-school graduate predecessors and a throwback to the Old Etonian school of Toryism; they thought he was too closely modelled on Blair to convince either the electorate or party activists out in the Shires

Chinese 'Military Assets' En Route To Syria?
The only thing that could make the bad situation the Obama administration has created in the middle east any worse would be for China to step up to the mark in solidarity with their allies Russia and Iran. And now we learn from pro-Assad Al-Masdar news ...

The Nuttiness Of NeoCon Destabilization Campaigns.
As the instability in the middle east spreads to Europe, North Africa and into Sourthern Asia we look as the role of the so - called neocons, piratical, mostly American corporate, world domination freaks who naively see the collapse of nations and the global economic structure as somehow working to their advantage. Ironically the neocons are aided and abetted by the neo-liberals, theoretically their rivals although the groups share the same broad aims.

Obama Is Employing An Army of Psychologists to Fundamentally Transform the Minds of All Americans
In 2008, I was asked if I was voting for Barack Obama. I said knew better and continued to explain that his political experience was very limited. No matter how astute I thought I was at that time, I could not have envisioned how destructive Barack Obama would prove to be to the lives of every American.

Playing Poker With Obama: Putin’s Calculated Risk In Syria
I've said before that the reason Vladimir Putin outmanoeuvres the US State Department in every diplomatic skirmish is that while American's play poker, which is all about bluff, Putin plays chess which is all about strategy. Russian President Vladimir Putin had decided to risk the possibility of military clashes with the United States and its European Allies, Saudi Arabia, other major Muslim nations and Israel by intervening in Syria ...

Leonora (historic fiction) by Gina Pounds - Review

Comedy Menu:

Comedy writing, verse, poetry, comic songs, cartoons, comic fiction, comic verse. If you are looking for a laugh and you can't find one here you are very hard to please.

Wide World

Join our writers as they take you around the world in words and pictures. No typical travelogue this because we try wander away from the usual tourist destinations, to delve a little deeper into the nature of the place, locals you might travel to, investigate the culture, how communities developed and what has made things the way they are. Look for overlaps here with our history, food and music menus as we try to recreate a little of the atmosphere. Nobody has yet found a way to digitise smells but as soon as the technology is abailable we will bring you that aspect of the ambience too.

Health and Wellbeing

How to make healthy eating fun, exercise that is not a chore, lessons in how to chill, sensible drinking. Health and Wellbeing are one of the main concerns that cause stress in this increasingly crazy world. In this menu find articles, spoken word and video on how to cope with the stresses of modern life, how to make a personal refuge for yourself even in a crowded place and how to fend off the pressures of the aggressive consumer society we inhabit.

The Natural World

Anything to do with nature can find a place here, from exploring a cave complex to articles and video on wildlife. There are obvious overlaps here with travel, health and wellbeing and the environment menus but that is the nature of The Greenteeth Labyrinth. Just as a walk in the woods might lead one of our writers to record the habits of an animal colony or write on the breeding cycle of birds, so in the Labyrinth you never know where a link might lead you to.

Real Lives - the biography menu

Biographical writing on the lives of the famous and the unknown (who often have the more interesting stories to tell,) memoir, stories told in verse, in pictures with commentary, in any way because Greenteeth Labyrinth is about using the power and versatility of new media to communicate in new ways. Everybody has a story to tell and their own way of telling it. Cameraderie, shared hardship, life on the factory floor or in the field, triumph, tragedy, survival, if it is true life it belongs here and we will find the best way of presenting it. THIS MENU is not live yet but find A Stroke Of Luck, Ian Thorpe's memoir of recovery from a massive brain haemorrhage available to read free online. Go to A Stroke Of Luck - Chapter 1

Past Perspectives: New Angles On History
History as it is taught in conventional schools and colleges is mostly wrong. Not slightly wrong, not just spun a bit to fit a political agenda but blatantly wrong. Worse, it is deliberately wrong. The Roman Empire, usually presented as the great civilising force in the western world, the enlightened society that dissed its enemies as Barbarians and Heathens was in many ways actually less civilised that the Bararians it conquered. The Celts of Norhern Europe, the Moors of North Africa and the Persians all had well organised societies and in many ways were ahead of Rome in technology and scholarship.
The American War Of Independence was not fought for religious freedom of in the first instance for freedom of any kind. The rebels were asking for seats in the British Parliament for the colonies, "no taxation without representation." The rebel leaders were British Gentleman Adventurers and many of the senior British Officers were supporters of the Stewart claim to the throne, regarding the Hanoverians as usurpers. Thus they were tacitly sympathetic to the rebellion. These are just two of the instances in which history needs to be viewed from a different perspective if a true picture is to be seen. There is much more in this menu.

A Quick Tour Of The Church of Saint Mary and All Saints, Whalley, Lancashire, UK A quick tour of the parish church of St Mary and All Saints in Whalley gives us a glimpse of the history of this area.There has been a Christian church on this site since the seventh century and though the eariest parts of the current building are from the tenth century stones from the older church were used in the construction. Three ancient Saxon crosses that stand in the church grounds are also from the tenth century

Philo & Sophia - Philosophy can be fun

From the core philosophies of the great religions to the ideas of modern existentialists, philosophy is regarded as dull, heavy and irrelevant. But philosophy is ideas and ideas are the most exciting things in the world. In the Greenteeth Labyrinth we try to bring you philosophy lite, wisdom without weight. From the origins of the Universe to the myseries of quantum physics, from the earliest forms of Goddess worship to the quasi - religious ideas of self help gurus, all is examined here. You will even find some articles in this menu showing up in the comedy pages too.The overall message of Philo and Sophia though can be summed up in the words of Hypatia of Alexandria, proto-feminist of the ancient world who said, "All formal and dogmatic religions are fallacious, to teach superstitions as truth is the most terrible thing. Reserve your right to think, for even to think wrongly is better than not to think at all."
What happened to her for thinking like that? Enter the menu to find out.

Fools and Dreamers - the poetry pages

Like philosophy, poetry is a type of literature easily shunned as boring. Often that dismissal is accurate, particularly in the case of modernists, whose self-indulgent navel gazing verse is deliberately made so obscure and complex it is doubtful even the poets themselves understand WTF they are banging on about. On the other hand there are maverick bands of poets, freal traditionalists, wandering the net attacking the unwary readers with their polysyllabic peregrenations through poetry's more arcane medieval forms. Bad traditional petry can be as much a turnoff as modern do-it-yourself psychology poems. At Greenteeth we publish the poets we think are fun, especially those who bring us their work in audio or video form. Poetry is about rhythm, pace and timing as much as language. Words can lie dead on a page. Let us bring them to life for you and maybe help you find a new form of entertainment to enjoy.

The Science and Technology Menu
Science and Technology is not a collection of work lauding all things scientific but is somewhere you will find objective and independent writing on technologies including sustainable power generation, internet developments, IT hardware, transport technology, food production and all areas of research and development while articles on natural sciences will set out to challege orthodox thinking. If you are one of those people who is trying to establish science as a rival to religion you will not feel at home here but if you like to keep up with at the latest developments from a wide perspective while reasing about them in a style that does not attempt to blind readers with science you will be in your element.

Humanitas - Everything That makes Us Human
Who are we, where do we come from, what's it all about, is there any point to all that we do ? Should we give a damn?
There is a very nasty tasting mindset being bred in the academic world, and particularly in the fields of science and technology, that insidiously suggests all the qualities that make being human so wonderful are in fact weaknesses and should be resisted if not eliminated. "We should all try to live scientifically" one eminent scientist recently suggested as if there was anything about life that could even loosely be described as scientific. In the end the scientists and tech-heads, with their insane belief in reason, logic and evidence based knowledge are little different to religious fundamentalists in the way they cling desperately to their certainties while the rest of us blunder hopefully through life trying to make some sense of it all.
Sub Menus: [ People and Customs ] ... [ Who We Are ] ... [ Work and Play ]

Faith and Spirituality
Wander through the writing of followers of various faiths, belief systems and traditions and maybe feel inspired to explore your own spirituality. You will find no preaching here, while all are welcome to submit to us their point of view, christian, muslim, jewish, hindi, buddhist, pagan and all their variations any work that tries to suggest one faith has the right understanding of life, the universe and everything while all the others are wrong will be rejected.
