Benefit System Needed Reform
by John De Roe

Iain Duncan Smith's proposals for reform of the benefit system is long overdue. The system has been crazy for several decades, remember the Boswells, the scrounging family of scouse scallies in the TV series bread? They were comedy characters but not that far removed from reality.

In some areas, thanks to the decline of the industrial base and a lack of foresight on the part of politicians and their advisers there are now third generation jobless who, knowing how to work the system, are living quite comfortably on benefits.

An article in today's Daily Telegraph,Outmoded Benefits System Needed Reform tackles the dreaded subject of welfare reform and reminds us of what Mark Twain is supposed to have said about the weather. Everyone talks about it; nobody does anything about it. And for a good reason. Radical plans that look good on paper fall apart once civil servants start doing the sums; even slight tweaks to the system create a political backlash, so politicians shrink from real reforms and take refuge in window dressing.

Human beings have a need for meaningful work however. While it might serve the agenda of corporate profits to replace workers with machines the process does neither communities nor individuals any favours.

The Oil Disappears From The Gulf
by Ed Butt

It was America's greastest eco - disaster ever. So where has all that spilled oil gone asks The Rational Optimist The Oil Disappears From The Gulf

Accrording to the Panic Merchant In Chief, Barack Hussein Obama, the oil spill that followed the blow out on BP's Deepwater Horizon rig was America's greatest ecological disaster ever. As usual Obama was ill informed and wrong. The spill was not the biggest the world's oceans have ever known, not even the biggest in the Gulf Of Mexico (see our link below) Not a trace of the 1979 oil spill now remains and nobody remembers it.

Americans, particularly those who supported Obama just love mass hysteria so it was inevitable the spill would be inflated into an outbreak of fear and panic. Ironically the Obama supporters who prided themselves on being rational and not prone to the idiocies embraced by the religious right have shown they were actually loopier. The just needed a messiah to follow who ticked all the politically correct boxes.

With Obama to lead them they have panicked about global warming, succumbed to swine flu hysteria and not quaked in fear of Oilmageddon as the panicmonger - in chief whipped up the frenzy.

Xavier Connolly in this website predicted weeks ago, long before the well was capped, that micro organisms would take care of the oil.


28 July 2010 Obama Blames BP For Lockerbie
by Ian R Thorpe

We often used to ask during the Presidencies of George W Bush and Bill Clinton, "Just who do the bloody Americans think they are." It was translated into many languages around the world as representatives of the USA tried to ride roughshod over diplomatic protocols.

Many deluded people thought things might change when Obama assumed power but now as we watch this vain, vacuous man strutting around the globe with all the pomp and swagger of an African village tyrant it is becoming clear those of us who warned things would be worse rather than better under Obama were right.

That Obama hates the British was always self evident, from the racist lies he wrote in his fantasy novel Dreams From My Father to the petulant dismissals of dissenters from the Obama imposed orthodoxy it is clear America has put in The White House a narcissistic solipsist who has no difficulty convincing himself he is President Of The World.

That he does indeed believe such a thing has been demonstrated in his handling of BP and the Gulf of Mexico oil well disaster. As well as displaying a woeful lack of leadership Obama has sought throughout the crisis to make political capital from it by demonising the British. When this failed he then sought to implicate BP in the release of the Lockerbie Bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi. In response to a completely unsupported allegation that BP had lobbied the British government to push for the release of Al Megrahi to help the company secure lucrative oil deals with Libya.

In an attempt to spark a diplomatic incident the Obama administration then appointed a Senate committee to look into the allegation. Despite it being quite clear the Obama White House had been closely ...

Did Obama OK The Release Of The Lockerbie Bomber
by John De Roe

The Daily Stirrer has commented many times on the racist nature of the Obama administration and the detestation of "white" people in general and the British in particular that President Barack Hussein Obama can barely be bothered to conceal. No matter we say, Britain benefits little from the so called "special relationship", the myth of which has been perpetuated by recent Labour Prime Ministers in order to justify their sycophancy towards The White House that has allowed them to pretend they were major players on the world stage.

It is of no matter that the USA does not regard its relationship with Britain as of any great importance. American interests lie in other directions and so do Britain's. In fact the perpetual sucking up of Blair and Brown to The White House was a national embarrassment. That said, it is good to be on friendly terms diplomatically with the USA, we may be as someone famously said "two nations divided by a single language" but we still have a lot in common with American people even if our cultures have diverged.

The Obama Presidency however has given our government very good reasons to distance itself from America. To of the list is the President's dislike of Britain and the British that has led to him telling blatant and ridiculous lies about his Kenyan connections in order to make Brain look bad. Then there have been the calculated insults to Gordon Brown, the cringeworthy episode in which the Obama's took their ghetto manners to Buckingham Palace and behaved as if they were the hosts and The Queen and Prince Phillip guests.

In recent months there has been his behaviour over the role of BP in the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and now his trying to involve BP in the controversy surrounding the release of the Lockerbie bomber.

We British then have no reason at all to continue subscribing to the deification of Obama because of his colour. The man does not like our country so we are justified in kicking him hard and often, even kicking him when he is down.So let's start putting the boot in now.

Obama's faux outrage about the release of Abdelbaset al-Megrahi by the Scottish administration is hypocritical in the extreme. The Daily Stirrer commented at the time of the release that it would never have gone ahead without the approval of The White House. Thus the summoning of former UK Justice Minister Jack Straw and Scottish Justice Minister Kenny MacKaskill to Washington where they would be required to give evidence before the US Senate is not only a breach of diplomatic protocol, it is also a chap stunt, a piece of political showboating from a politician who has found his celebrity lifestyle is not enough to save his failing Presidency.

Take a look at what top left wing boadsheet and long time supporters of Obama, The Guardian reported on the matter of a letter sent to Scottish ministers by a senior diplomat at the US embassy in London last August, eight days before Abdelbaset al-Megrahi was released from prison because he was dying from inoperable prostate cancer:

Obama's administration has refused to allow publication of the letter, in which the US says allowing Megrahi to live at home in Scotland would be "far preferable" to sending him back to Libya under the prisoner transfer deal brokered by former prime minister Tony Blair in 2007. Although Megrahi was allowed to go home to die in Tripoli, Scottish officials believe this undermines Obama's vigorous criticisms of the decision to free Megrahi earlier this month, when he said he was left "surprised, disappointed and angry" by the Libyan's release. FULL story here

The right leaning Daily Telegraph comments:

The Lockerbie scandal has just become even murkier. According to a Sunday Times report yesterday the US government secretly advised Scottish ministers that it would be far preferable to free the Lockerbie bomber than jail him in Libya. The newspaper obtained a leaked document which reveals that Richard LeBaron, deputy head of the US embassy in London, had written to Alex Salmond, Scottish First Minister, ahead of the release of the Lockerbie bomber. The correspondence indicates that the Obama administrations opposition to the compassionate release of the Lockerbie bomber may not have been as clear-cut as it has subsequently claimed. FULL story

The Sunday Times is now behind a paywall so we cannot link to the original. All we can say is it is a leaked document and has not yet been acknowledged by the US government as authentic. If there is nothing to hide however, nothing in the contents that would reveal President Obama as a posturing hypocrite there is unlikely to be anything that would threaten the security of either nation. If there is nothing to hide there is no reason for The White House withhold publication.

So Obama is blocking release of the documents, we must assume, because the contents would embarrass him. Well he has a track record for blocking access to document that should be in the public domain so nothing unexpected there. Bear in mind that the said letter, the full text of which has now been leaked to the Sunday Times, was written in August 2009, months after Obama had assumed the Presidency. So he cannot play his usual get out of jail card by blaming George W Bush.

Britain enjoys special relationships with Canada, Australia and India, a nation David Cameron visits this week. Our coalition government would do well to build on those ties, particularly in our dealings with India, a rapidly emerging economic, industrial and technological power. We can safely cut Obama adrift, if it sours future relations with America that will only impact on the ability of future Labour Prime Ministers to delude themselves they are world statesmen. By the time Obie leave office in 2012 however he will be so unpopular we will be able to pick up with his successor the international relations we enjoyed with the Bush, Clinton and Reagan administrations.

Can Humanity Deal With The Worst Disasters Without Scientists? Urrrrrrm...
by Ed Butt

Those strange people who like to style themselves "scientists" are a tad upset at the way their elaborately constructed climate change scam which they were so sure would help their tribe achieve world domination has collapsed under objective scrutiny.

We have to give credit where credit is due however and the scientists deserve credit for persistence if nothing else. Having endured similar hmiliations with the failure of the swine flu scam, the mad cow disease scam, the AIDS scam, the oil is running out scam, the water shortage scam, the ozone layer scam and a hot of others they are still pushing their fear and panic line "catastrophe is imminent, only the scientists can save the world" line.

In Is Humanity Prepared For The Worst
Science writer ian Sample considers how scientists might prepare humanity to face the challenges the future will present us with. The catastrophe's he lines up are climate change, crop failures due to over - intensive farming, designer killer viruses, disastrous but unforseen consequences of attempts to reverse climate change by geo - engineering and oceanic pollution by algae due to nutrient rich chemical outflows from rivers, sewers, industrial plants etc. And again the line is we must give the scientists all the money and expensive toys they demand because only science can save us from such problems.

As most of these catastrophes are likely to be created by the consequences of ill though-out scientific research perhaps we should prepare by killing all scientists. It will be much cheaper and safer than trusting them.

Selection By Stealth or Sound Common Sense
by Xavier Connolly

The Education Minister in the coalition government Michael Gove was accused yesterday of introducing a policy that will allow schools to select pupils A leaked government document questioned the future of the admissions code that stops schools favouring children they believe are more likely to produce better results.

Oh horror of horrors. Selecting pupils? That will only lead to the destruction of comprehensive education, the production line education system created by Labour and their politically correct left wing apparatchiks in the academic environment with the sole aim of churning out streams of identical, unthinking, state dependent Labour voters.

What the fuck is wrong with selection. In schools now, and I am a lecturer in a local college so I'm qualified to comment, we have a culture of anti intellectualism. The pupils who want to learn, who are bookish, quiet, introverted, sensitive, ginger haired, in any way different tend to have a miserable time. The yobs rule and the staff pander to them for the sake of a quiet life.

What was wrong with the old Grammar Schools when the intelligent, the top fifteen or twenty percent were segregated and encouraged to perform according to their ability. Did such an education do either myself, John or Ian any harm? More to the point did it do our friends any harm to attend a "Secondary Modern." Many of them went on to do well in life, some did not do so well but the same can be said of our old classmates.

One former colleague of mine, Ollie Chadwick was always one of the brightest boys in our year. He did not go to University, many pupils leaving grammar school with A levels in the 1960s did not. I don't know what went wrong for Ollie but he died a few years ago, just turned sixty, a shambling wreck, an alcoholic and compulsive gambler who, at the end of an afternoon in the bookies was always trying to beg a pound so he could by a loaf of bread and eat toast.

A boy who lived a short walk from where I grew up but in the council houses, is a millionaire now. He did not go to grammar school being of a more practical mindset. The phrase "good with hands" would have featured on his school reports. He was not bad at business either and is a millionaire now with a second hand car showroom and a solid engineering firm that specialises in making engine parts for classic cars. He served a technical apprenticeship in the aircraft industry but the skills he gained there and the academic knowledge gained through day release and night school equipped him to combine his love of cars with his skills as an engineer.

I know a young man, our webmaster Ian knows him much better having watched him draw his first breaths. He is a brilliant musician and artist but at school was always a thoughtful, sensitive boy. One of his former teachers, now dead, was an old friend of mine. He told me of that lad, "He has a brilliant brain and is a really gifted artist. If ever there was a boy who should have gone to grammar school it is him. But he struggled to survive in the comprehensive system, he was bullied, attracted more bullying by trying to appeal to the little thugs and then tried to survive by becoming the clown, the dunce. Then in the fourth year he changed.

I know what happened. Ian, his Dad if you had not guesssed, finally got though to him the notion that you have to defend yourself, that if you try to be friendly some peple will always see it as a sign of weakness. And believe me a young man could have no better teacher in self defence than our Ian, intelligent, cultured and rather short though he is. There is no point trying to reason with morons, they only understand violence. By that time however that young man's school career had been ruined.

The price we have paid for the incessant experiments in social engineering in education is so visible in the classes I teach now. So many late developers, people taking Vocational and External Degree courses at the college as they work part time or are supported by a partner, so many of them with good brains, so many, when they can be coaxed into talking, with the same story to tell: "If you were good in school, if you enjoyed lessons and were keen to learn you were the outsider. You had no mates, you were the creep, the weirdo."

So many of them are people who should have gone to the Grammar School or Technical College. To be in an environment where people wrere not queers or homos or mentalists because they liked to read books or would rather sit with a sketchbook or practice a musical instrument than play football or go out with a gang looking for trouble"

So what is so bad about selection. It does not segregate by class or income as the current system does. It reduces segregation, promotes social mobility. Pupils are allowed to develop in their own way, at their own pace. Highflyers at school like Ollie do not always develop into successful adults. Others do not reveal their full potential until in their twenties of thirties. We need a system that educates individuals rather than trying to create clones.

Calls to Expand EU? Bollocks.
by Ed Butt

We could go a long way towards reducing our public sector deficit if we simply left the EU, it costs us a fucking fortune. Europhiles will shriek and recoil in horror at the thought of course. Far from bringing under control the EU's runaway spending fans of EU expansion, integration and federalisation would love to bring in to the community more third world countries like Turkey so its enormous population can be subsidised by German, British and French taxpayers.

It gets worse however. Europe is not big enough for some
The ambition of the most fervent fans of the European Union is the Federal European Superstate. For some completely mental twats however even that is not enough, they will not rest until there is one global government.

Read maverick Conservative MEP on the One World Government movement. Honestly, if these people hate who they are and what our civilization stands for that much whuy don't they just kill their fucking selves and let the rest of us get on withouth hand wringing guilt trippers constantly whining about the poor of Turkey, Africa, India etc. Do you ever hear of rich Turks, Indians or Africans putting their hands in their pockets to help these poor people?

No, they don't give a flying fuck.

Well we don't have to be that callous but we have our own problems and charity begins at home. Independent nations can run their own affairs quite well without advice from the world domination freaks of the wealthy, educated, elitist left.

Bullying Telephone Debt Collectors
by John De Roe

A little known consequence of the global financial crisis has been that the banks which own many of the major credit card brands, Barclaycard, MBNA, Goldfish, have bundled up bad debt and sold it on for about 10p in the pound to some pretty unpleasant people who are now contracting telephone bullies to recover as much asd they can. As the thuigs who run the debt collection services are paid on commission they have a huge incentive to screw as much as they can out of you by methods including, but not limited to, intimidation and threats of bankruptcy, loss of home, trashing your credit rating with Experian, Equifax etc. whose state sanctioned records are supervised by the Information Commissioners Office (in the UK).

Experian and Equifax run a system that effectively has by passed the legal system. To use a colloquialism they are a law unto themselves. The Debtor company decides you are guilty on the say so of one of their members and that is you screwed for credit or finance for the next five years or until the default notice disappears off your record.

It is not a case of you are innocent until proved guilty, you are guilty until you can prove that you do not owe these characters any money. And even if you prove you owe them nothing, whether they will clean your credit record is touch and go. People who carry out such admin tasks cannot be employed on commission only as can the bullies who tell you Lefty and the Boys will be round if you don't pay.

If you are unfortunate enough to be targeted by one of these debt recovery companies here's how to handle it. Do not get into any telephone discussion with them. Keep everything in writing. Ask for a copy of the Credit Agreement you have allegedly signed with them, or if they say they have bought the debt ask for a copy of the assignment document. Invariably they will not be able to produce such a document, because they rely on intimidation tactics to divert attention away from the due process of Law which they are trying to circumvent.

Now we must add a caveat, if you take out credit particularly now when the mainstream banks are reluctant to lend, you should think very carefully about it and whether you can really afford to service the debt. When indebted to a licenced bank or credit company if your circumstances change you should be able to rely on the Law to protect you losing everything. There is nothing to stop respectable(ish) finance companies from selling debts however, in fact despite all the politicians' promises to tighten regulations there is still absolutely nothing to stop a bank selling your debt to the kind of chancers and scumbags who seek to make a quick out of peoples misery and humiliation.

There are a few market leaders out there that take the biscuit, remember the Party of The People, those progressive lefties of New Labour were proposing to give bailiff companies the right to break into your home? A far cry from the 1920s when political activists in the Communist and Labour Parties banded together to prevent evictions. Now we have to rely on consumer protection lawsUsually a swift letter to the company concerned citing The Prevention of Harassment Act 1997 sec 2 usually does the trick.
(This is for UK readers of The Daily Stirrer only local laws apply in different nations)

To terminate a telephone call from an aggressive debt collector:

Tell them you are recording the conversation for the purposes of training

or

If they are telephoning from India, tell them that what they are doing is illegal, you want their name and department and that you will be contacting the Police when you have finished the call.

And remember, these thugs hate to do business in writing. Force them, document everything, make a note of times of calls (telephone companies can trace call information for you and from calling line identification date pinpoint the source of a call) write a brief memo of what is said or, if you possibly can record the call.

EU Federalisation By Stealth
by Ed Butt

Conservative MEP Daniel Hannan asked in his blog recently "What constitutes a state?"

The accepted definition in International Law is in the opening paragraph of the 1933 Montevideo Convention on the Rights and Duties of States:

"The state as a person of international law should possess the following qualifications: (a) a permanent population; (b) a defined territory; (c) government; and (d) capacity to enter into relations with the other states."

The European Union whose member states' voters overwhelmingly reject the notion of a single European superstate already has a permanent population and well defined territorial boundaries. It also has a government of sorts, the tyrannical bureaucrats of Brussels and the toothless parliament in Stasbourg could not be considered anything else. Now the EU has closed down item (d) too . The European Constitution Lisbon Treaty, which came into effect on 1 December 2009, gave the EU legal personality: that is, the right to sign treaties as a single entity. Under the Lisbon agreement the acts of the EU government supersede those laws passed by the elected representatives of member states. Now, we hear, the EU has been formally recognised by the United Nations. It has a single foreign policy from which member states cannot opt out even though the central authority may be riding roughshod over the national interests of individual member states in pursuit of the interests of the bureaucratic dictatorship. Put all thse things together and they add up to capacity to enter into relations with other states.

So there you have it. After being rejected by the voters of those nations that were allowed to vote, France and The Netherlands, the single European supertstate has been brough into being by stealth in what must be the greatest act of political mendacity and deception ever.

British Troops Will Leave Afghanistan by 2014 Says Defence Minister
by Ed Butt

"About bloody time" you might think as you read the headline. This pointless war has dragged on for 9 years now and has cost more than enough in British lives.

A document leaked to The Independent On Sunday reportedly states the withdrawal of NATO troops is to begin within months.

The document states, allegedly: "The international community expressed its support for the President of Afghanistan's objective that the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) should lead and conduct military operations in all provinces by the end of 2014."

It goes on to pledge that the international community will continue to "provide the support necessary to increase security during this time, and the continued support in training, equipping and providing interim financing to the ANSF at every level to take on the task of securing their country".

There could be another aspect to this policy leak besides demonstrating the coalition government's reluctance to keep pouring money into the fiery pit of this unwinnable war. While the official line on the US / UK Special relationship is that David Cameron and Barack Obama have a good working relationship the signs that Cameron does not rate Obama as a political equal are becoming blatantly obvious.

This latest move then could be a way of letting Obama know British support is not guaranteed.

The Independent's story comes after Foreign Secretary William Hague hinted that British regiments would be leaving Afghanistan by 2014 although Mr. Hague stated clearly the government was not "setting a timetable for what happens over the next few years".

The timing of the leak could be an attempt to put down a marker for the International Conference on Afghanistan next Tuesday (20 July, 2010) at which US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and foreign ministers from more than 70 countries will discuss future strategy for the failed middle eastern state. With violence escalationg in Iraq again despite a continuing but low key American military presence this news is another blow for the beleagued Obama administration

Prime Minister David Cameron has previously vowed to have troops out by 2015. It looks at though he meant it. With casualties rising however and the war looking increasingly futile and unwinnable and the urgency of the financial situation it is had to see what realistic alternative was open to the government.

Did BP Lobby For Lockerbie Bomber's Release
by John De Roe

By now we should all know that anybody who supports the politics of the "progressive left" in either the UK's Labour Party or any of its other manifestations is insane, not just clinically insane but totally stark raving, banging their head on the wall, chewing the carpet, rubbing shit in their hair and eating gravel for breakfast bonkers.

The latest measure of politically correct socialist insanity has come via the accusation that oil giant BP lobbied Gordon Brown's government for the release of the Lockerbie Bomber Abdelbaset Ali Mohmet al-Megrahi. We hope this is a total fabrication because BP, already in trouble for the Deepwater Horizon oil rig's exploding and millions of gallons of crude oil leaking into the Gulf of Mexico from the uncapped well, may not be able to withstand a new crisis.

To try to distance the British government and in particular the coalition from the accusation Sir Nigel Sheinwald, the British Ambassador to Washington has called the release of Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset Ali Mohmet al-Megrahi a mistake, in what can only be seen as an attempt by the Coalition Government to disown the aberrations of the Labour / Scottish Nationalist administration in Scotland.

Kenny MacAskill, the fruitcake who serves in the Scottish administration as Justice Secretary, is the champion of criminals rather than of victims. On assuming office he told the Scottish Police Federation conference the principle that the justice ministry and the police existed to protect the public from lawless elements was an anachronism. His perception of the role of justice was to ensure the police were be recruited from a diversity of ethnic and sexual backgrounds.

Under MacAskill's "progressive" regime the prison gates have been opened; recently he announced a plan to abolish all jail sentences of less than six months but was was frustrated by the Scottish parliament which settled for a compromise three months. Naturally when he found the fate of the worlds most notorious prisoner, the only surviving Lockerbie bomber, rested in his hands, the outcome was a foregone conclusion. By freeing a man convicted of 270 murders he would pave the way for placing the "human rights" of all criminals ahead of the rights of law abiding citizens to live peacefully and unmolested.

To be fair to the Labour government they had negotiated a low key Prisoner Transfer with Libya. Instead MacKaskill who is so righteous a paternalistic authoritarian he knows political correctness must not only be done but must be seen to be done, opted for a photo opportunity rich compassionate release, in view of the prognosis that Megrahi had less than three months to live. A whole year later and Abdelbaset is emphatically still with us even though he will not be entering any charity walks any time soon. How the families of Lockerbie victims feel about this can only be imagined, but in a politically correct justice system victims rights have never amounted to much against the "rights" of perpetrators and the self righteousness of those who dispense political correctness.

BPs role in pressing for a decision on the prisoner transfer agreement with Libya, to facilitate its acquiring oil exploration rights from the Gaddafi regime, has now become common knowledge at the very worst possible time for the company. Barack Obama is fighting to reassert himself after a disastrous eighteen months since taking office, BP temporary capping of the Gulf of Mexico oil leak is not good news for Obama because while it has, temporarily at least, stopped oil flowing into the waters of the Gulf it was achieved in spite of rather than with the support of the Obama administration.

A number of Democrat senators are demanding an investigation into whether BP played any part in the release of Megrahi. If any evidence to that effect surfaces, BP is toast. The Obama administration will take it out with the help of a predatory-looking Exxon and the vultures of Wall Street. That would make Obama look strong again, provide distraction from his other failures and it would do a lot towards restoring America's pre - eminence in the oil trade.

Maybe it is time for the English, Welsh and Northern Irish to decide if we want devolution from Scotland.

More Graduates, Less Graduate Jobs
by Xavier Connolly

Vionce Cable the coalition government's minister responsible for business and higher education has kicked off the biggest shake up in University financing in the past four decades. Since the vast and rapid expansion of higher education begun bt the Wilson government in the 1960 there has been constant growth in University funding, the number of University places available and the amount of government money flowing into Universities.

Eventually, inevitably (stimulus spending supporters please note) the University system became too expensive for the state to support it. Tony Blair's Labour government, while blethering about everybody having the right to a University education introduced tuition fees and student loans to that instead of the state paying for most student's education, the students left University saddled with a hige dept that would blight their lives and careers. At the same time more and more school leavers were being steered towards a University education but due to the depletion of the manufacturing base there were fewer and fewer suitable jobs.

All the while Labour were in power they kept muttering about the knowledge economy as if simply having attained a University degree was a marketable asset. In reality were were spending fortunes on educating people to be call centre clerks, shelf fillers and burger flippers.

Somehow the crazy situation had to be addressed. In an economy forced to face the reality that perpetual and perpetually accelerating economic growth is impossibe we had to face the reality that churning out ever greater numbers of graphic designers, journalists, art historians, sociologists and music teachers was futile when we already had a surplus of that type of qualified person but were importing plumbers, mechanics, electricians, joiners, bricklayers and engineering operatives from eastern Europe.

We had gone beyond saturation point for graduates.

That would have been quite an easy problem but the more pressing business of reducing the unsustainable public sector deficit creaed by Labour's insane spending and loonytoons economic policies put a different complexion on it. So what will Cable do?

Comparing the existing system of tuition fees to a "poll tax" that graduates paid regardless of their income, the skills secretary argued it was fairer for people to pay according to their earning power. He said: "It surely can't be right that a teacher or care worker or research scientist is expected to pay the same graduate contribution as a top commercial lawyer or surgeon or City analyst whose graduate premium is so much bigger."

Graduates earned on average 100,000 more than non-graduates in their life-time, Cable said, and there are significant premiums for degrees such as medicine.

Cable asked Lord Browne, the former CEO of BP who was conducting a review of student finance, to look at a variable graduate tax tied to earnings. Low earners may end up paying less than they currently do for their degrees while those with high incomes pay more.

The graduate tax would replace the current system, under which the government lends money to students to cover the cost of their degree courses and graduates pay this back once they start earning more than 15,000.

Phasing out tuition fees is a crucial part of Liberal Democrat education policy. Any moves by the coalition to raise fees or even keep the status quo could prove divisive. Lib Dem MPs will be allowed to abstain from any vote on fees under the coalition agreement.

The Minister warned the Labour government's target of extending higher education to 50% of the population was unrealistic and likely to be scrapped. Figures from the university admissions service, Ucas, revealed the pressure on university places: universities have received more than 660,000 applications and a record number of students likely to be denied a place this autumn.

Cable told an audience of vice- chancellors at South Bank University in London: "What we have is an urgent problem. Universities are going to have to ask how they can do more for less. There will probably be less public funding per student quite possibly fewer students coming straight from school to do three-year degrees." Universities had to be prepared for a period of contraction. "Britain is a poorer country than two years ago and future spending had to be adjusted accordingly."

Cable's proposals mark a departure from the current sytem of University funding and the biggest change to the university system since the early 1990s, when at least 40 polytechnics became universities and higher education was expanded.

Dick Puddlecoat drew out attention to this item, confirmation of what us truth tellers have known about the NHS for a long time but what neither the NHS Hierarchy nor their political masters could ever be goaded into acknowledging.

Weight Watchers On The NHS - So What's Wrong With Homeopathy?
by Xavier Connolly

I read today the NHS will in future be required to fund fatties attendance at Weight Watchers clubs.

The Medical Research Council suggests that Weight Watchers courses should be offered on the NHS. And that seems like a good idea. Weight Watchers doesnt cost much. And if Weight Watchers might work as a longer-term way of addressing of addressing obesity, I think the reason will be that the classes have an educative component. Read all Weight Watchers On The NHS
Now I would not claim be be an expert on weight loss, a sensible diet and long walks have always kept me in fairly good shape, but I do know none of my wife's friends who ever enrolled at Weight Watchers kept the weight off once they had left. Which means Weight Watcher have found the perfect profit making machine, everyone becomes a customer for life or for as long as they are prepared to be ripped off every week. And I suspect many people will be happy to be ripped off every week forever if the NHS are picking up the tab.

Medical science spokespeople have welcomed this development however.

Makes one wonder why they get so het up about homeopathy. Nobody I know has ever told me weight watchers worked for them and if anybody did I'd know they were lying. One or two people of my acquaintance (yes I do know some tree huggers) swear homeopathy has worked for them and while I have no reason to believe it I have no reason to doubt them either.

Climate Science Debunked By Science Superstar Max Planck.

by Ian R Thorpe

One of the lies most often repeated by the Climate Science lobby is that 'the science stands' i.e. that no fault was found in the scientific work of the CRU. This is both true and a lie, true in that no fault was found, a lie because the reason no fault was found is that to examine the scientific work was outside the Russell panel's terms of reference. This report features the Max Planck Institute's take on climate science and the IPCC.

Climate Change: Thoughts On The Russell Report
by Ian R Thorpe

There has been a lot of exitement among the science community over the Russell report on the Climategate Scandal this week. We expected as much, the science community or Church of Scienceology as those of us inclined to sarcasm like to call them are a shaalow, excitable lot who are apt to lose control of their emotions at the slightest provocation. Rational thinking and controlled, objective analysis is not their forte.

Let's look at a few claims made by the Science zealots:

First; the report "exonerated" the scientists involved with the East Anglia University Climate Research Unit (CRU).

This is not true, it is a complete misrepresentation of what the report avctually says:

We note that much of the challenge to CRUs work has not always followed the conventional scientific method of checking and seeking to falsify conclusions or offering alternative hypotheses for peer review and publication. We believe this is necessary if science is to move on, and we hope that all those involved on all sides of the climate science debate will adopt this approach.

So they did not find the "science" flawless, they found the bits of the "science" the panel's terms of reference required them to look at did not reaveal anyevidence of dishonest. But as we all know absence of evidence is not evidence of absence and if the report did not look at everything their conclusion whist true is not an aquittal.

Here is a quote from the responsible minister in the UK Parliament when presenting the report to the House:

Muir Russell's independent review is not looking at the science it is looking at allegations about malpractice. As for the science itself, I have not actually seen any evidence of any flaw in the science but I am hoping, later this week, to announce the chair of a panel to reassess the science and make sure there is nothing wrong.

So they are going to be loking at the methodology again, this time without the work being subjected to the relentless scrutiny of the British media and blogosphere. Here's the bit on the fabrication allegation. Remember - the allegation is that Professor Phil Jones, who resigned due to allegations of scientific skulduggery and was hurredly reinstated following a dubious claim that the report had "exonerated" him, inserted a groundless statement that McKitrick's findings were "statistically insignificant". Here's what Jones said in his evidence to Russell:
The basis for this statement is that if the CRUTEM3 trend is reduced by the factor claimed by MM2004, the land-based record then becomes incompatible with the ocean and the satellite record. MM2004 make no mention of this in their paper. In writing Chapter 3 of AR4 the author team were mindful of this. MM2004s analysis of the land surface temperature record is completely at odds with the rest of the surface and lower tropospheric temperature records. MM2004 also fails to take into account the effects of changes in the atmospheric circulation.

And the panel said:
Having read most of the relevant papers... we observe a consistence of view amongst those who disagree with MM2004 that has been sustained over the last 6 years, that the large scale organisation of atmospheric circulation produces a spatially integrated response to forcing. Although we do not comment on the relative merits of the two views, we see no justification of the view that that this response was ?invented, or even that its various expressions in the response to reviewer Gray or the final text are fundamentally different.

Jones appears to have shifted his position from "McKitrick's findings are statistically insignificant" to "McKitrick's findings conflict with other evidence". Whether this is true or not is irrelevant. What matters is that Jones when challenged was unable to provide any support for the claim that was inserted in the IPCC text. This means the allegation of fabrication is uncontestable. What should also demand closer scrutiny is the apparent attempt to hide behind joint authorship - the finger of blame can't be pointed at Jones because lots of people wrote that chapter.

So in examining two very brief findings we learn that the report's terms of reference did not require it to report on the quality of the CRU's work and that in a manner typical of the academic community Jones and his associates were judged by their peers who closed ranks to protect colleagues and friernds.

And on the most serious allegation against Jones, that of e-mails Jones asked colleagues to delete so that their contents were not available to sceptics using the Freedom Of Information act to scrutinixe the work of the CRU, well the inquiry did not get round to asking him about that even though he had previously admitted doing this in an interview with BBC television.

Is anyone surprised this whole exercise was a cover up? No we're not.

The Real Danger To America?
by Ed Butt

I love this quotation.

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."

"The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."

It is alleged to have been translated into English from an article appearing in the Czech Republic as published in the Prager Zeitung of 28 April 2010 but seems to have been in circulation on the web since before that. In reality then we do not know who the author is (I suspect Bill Clinton) but spend time in the coment threads of any US political blogs and it is clear how deeply the man who promised to unite that country has divided it. There is no middle ground, no debate. Supporters of Obama and those in the anti - Obama camp just yell at each other that anyone who does not agree with their world view is an (a) idiot (b) right/left wing nut job (c) a Marxist / fascist.

When the passage featured on a Yahoo forum query titledWhat Is Wrong With Barack Obama it triggered par - for - the - course responses from either side of the political spectrum. The best response, chosen by the moderators came from a commenter using the name Greenman.

Obama appeared upon the national political scene as an extremely liberal senator from Illinois. Although his congressional record is basically empty and his own assessment of his judgment was that he was too busy running for public office to do much of substance in his senate career. He skipped committee meetings and was absent from the senate voting secessions about a fourth of the time; however Obama had his surface appeal to fall back on. Bush was not only disliked due to his awkwardness in communication and the Iraqi war only added to his political burden. In retrospect, any truly fresh face was desirable and perfect to the DNC to be their choice to represent their party. Now with President Bush to blame for all that is wrong, this man was a sure thing in the race to the Whitehouse.

Now this man who has never revealed his credentials, except perhaps to a secret few, and has ridden behind his veil of secrecy into the position of Commander-in-Chief of the worlds most powerful military; this pitiful, annoying pipsqueak of a man who would not make a pimple on a privates *** has used his position to fire a four-star general for allegedly saying things, the truthfulness of which has not been challenged, but which hurt the feelings of this elitist prince of fools who now holds the catbird seat in our government.

The implosion of the Obama Presidency could be good news for the rest of the world however. While America is obsessed with internicine conflict the other nations can get on with putting right the global economy.

Higher Education Is The Path To Unemployment
by Xavier Connolly

The news that there are seventy applicants for each job vacancy requiring a new graduate from University, though it is indicative of a dire situation in the jobs market, should not be interpreted as meaning there is only one job for each graduate seeking to enter the world of paid employment in a job related to the subject they studied. It will be presented as such but should not be. Even so, when each graduate feels it necessary to send off job applications in industrial quantities knowing that most will not even be read it is quite soul destroying for a young person who has been told a University education is the path to a better career and more fulfilling life.

One of the problems we know face has arisen from the obsession of "progressive" politics with University education. In reality we only need around 15% to 20% of school leavers entering University. That is not to say many more should not go through higher education in some way. A University education is highly focused on academic learning thus it is ideal for teachers, thinkers, theorists. When I left Grammar school at 16 and took up an engineering craft apprenticeship I was taking the same route as thousands of others. We all continued our education though day release and night school, some until they had completed their five year apprenticeship, others like myself following the path right through to Higher National Diploma standard. Some of the best and most creative engineers I have worked alongside had this educational background, a solid understanding of theory enriched with practical, hands on experience.

We abandoned that very successful approach to training future generations for several reasons. One was that academics gained too much influence with politicians unable to tell the difference between a genuine desire to spread knowledge and facilitate social mobility and what was really nothing but self interested empire building.

Next we allowed companies to shirk their training responsibilities. When some sharp shit accountant decided training was pointless because it was easier and cheaper to recruit fully trained staff from rivals many businessmen thought this very clever and followed suit. Eventually the cost of training made those socially responsible companies that retained a commitment to it unable to compete. The burden of training was shifted to the state. It is a task, like most tasks, at which the state does not perform well.

So basically the problems graduates now face in finding suitable employment are mostly down to short term thinking and bureaucratic empire building. Is it any surprise we are up shit creek?

Amazon Takes On Sainsbury's - Digital Economy Killing Jobs?
by Xavier Connolly

We are not against progress at this publication nor are we against technology. There has to come a point however where, when presented with some new development and told it will make life better in many ways for us all, we take the advice of Marcus Tullius Cicero and ask "Cui Bono?" Who benefits? One such case is exemplified by the expansion of Amazon into the grogeries business.

Amazon.co.uk has today started selling groceries from its website. You can get over 22,000 product lines including ready meals, fresh meat (including a whole lamb for 120) and household brands such as Marmite. According to James Leeson, the director of grocery at Amazon UK, the company wants its website to be the place where customers can find and discover any product they want to buy online.
OK you say, Tesco and Asda sell books and CDs, why shouldn't Amazon sell corn flakes? Quite, were it only the sales of the big retailers that suffered why indeed should Amazon not sell groceries. To get an idea of how damaging this trend is however we need to take a wider view. Remember if you can the end of the 1950s when supermarkets were few and far between and every neighbourhood had its own shops. These were not just grocers, but greengrocers, butchers, fish mongers, shops selling newspapers, magazines sweets and tobacco, ironmongers, bakers and a host of other trades some just providing a living for the owner's family, some employing several people. Every town big enough to boast a town centre of a "High Street" had its bookshops, stationers, craft and hobby shops, furniture warehouses, a selection of clothing and shoe retailers, electrical shops, a record store (very American, the record business), all sorts of specialist businesses and an array of stalls and lock ups selling flowers, snacks, pet foods, gifts, second hand tat and almost anything else. Now apart from the social aspect of that system which is gone forever we have lost countless jobs. In Britain when the one - stop hypermarkets were spreading during the 1980s and 90s news programmes would report "XYZ Stores today announced a new Hypermarket to be built in Slaghoughton will create 400 new jobs." How many jobs would be lost in businesses forced to shut down or reduce staff by the arrival of a new retail force with which the independents could not hope to compete was never mentioned. An independent study by the Small Business Federation put it at double the number of jobs created. That is gone of course, we cannot turn back the clock nor undo what is done. It is ironic however that the same governments, the same political movements that shaped industrial and redevelopment policies to benefit the supermarkets are now so besotted with the digital economy they are prepared to shaft their former friends in order to help the new online retailers. The Daily Stirrer will shed no tears for Tesco and Co. but we do wonder what effect this will have on the remaining independent businesses. And in an era of economic crisis and rapidly rising joblessness we wonder about the sanity of politicians who are encouraging this expansion of online business to steam ahead at full throttle. All the talk of creating jobs and curtailing benefits to encourage people back to work starts to look a bit hypocritical when economic policy is geared towards encouraging those businesses whose success depends on destroying real jobs in the real world.

Poverty and Common Sense
by Ian R Thorpe

Two stories, both concerning jobs, one on poverty and one on benefits sat next to each other on the BBC website today. They made me think once again about the insanity that seems to have infected the nations of the developed world.

Poverty Gap Continues To Grow (BBC News, 6 July 2010) New research from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation has shown the gap between the statutory minimum wage and the income needed to fund an "acceptable standard of living" is widening.) Also read: Minimum Wage Scam ... Minimum Wage Folly
Radical Shake up For Benefit Payments
A raft of benefits have been cut or curbed as part of a radical shake up of the welfare system. These changes are designed to save 11bn per year by the end of the parliamentary term. That adds up to a quarter of the annual target of 40bn of spending cuts and tax rises by 2014-15.

We seem to have lost sight of what actually constitutes poverty. When the bleeding hears and the hand wringers start to bleat about the intolerable poverty being endured by people who do not have a broadband connection and a web enabled computer in their home, when the Labour government we ejected from office in May 2010 could spend 13 years wailing about child poverty and promising to abolish it without ever seeming to make the link between children living in poverty and adults who are lazy, self indulgent and not willing to work for a living, when we can hear talk of children who do not have the latest iPhone or iPod, designer trainers or hoodies or any of the other crap from which the modern pikey child or pikey adult derives all their self esteem are we talking about poverty or are we talking about a salve for the easily bruised consciences of middle class left wing guilt trippers?

Many of the cuts proposed in the budget presented by the Conservative / Liberal Democrat coalition will affect only across the board payments such as child benefit. Will the government have the good sense to make up the loss of genuine income for the needy so income is only reduced for more affluent recipients.

My wife and I received child benefit for both our children until they were sixteen. Throughout that time I was earning well above the national average despite living in a designated "low pay area." We now receive a winter fuel payment of 250 on account of my being disabled. My two colleagues in writing The Daily Stirrer both receive this as does my brother - in -law. We are all comfortably off and pay tax on our pensions. Why are these benefits paid across the board and not on a basis of need. None of the people I mentioned would complain if these benefits were removed, I know because I asked the others. We accept them because there is no easy way of opting out.

Over thirty years ago the Liberal Party as it was then, a tiny group in Parliament with about ten MPs despite polling over 10% of the vote, was campaigning for some social benefits to be linked to the PAYE tax code. It was a simple way of directing benefits to where they were needed. Since then we have had several massive projects involving the expenditure of billions on Information Technology, all aimed at reforming the tax and benefits system. All have failed chaotically.

Is it not time the left, having had thirteen years to address this problem without doing anything more than whine about the horrors of deprived children who do not have iPhones, just shut the fuck up about unfairness. It's their bleeding heart incompetence, fuckwittery and failure to regulate the advertising industry's brainwashing of the public that caused most it.

Turning The Kids Into Drunks
by Ian R Thorpe

Long before The Daily Stirrer showed up on the web, when John, Xav and I used to get together in the pub to put the world to rights one topic that came up quite fequently was the demonisation of smoking.

You watch," we'd say to each other and anyone else that might be listening, "these politically correct Nazis are on a world domination trip. With Hitler it was 'Today Poland, tomorrow the world. With the do gooders it's 'Today ciggies, tomorrow the world.'"

We would think back to the 1970s, the public information campaigns about not smoking in front of the kids because it would set a bad example. We would say "Yes, when they have made smoking as unacceptable as murder, rape and paedophilia they'll start on drinking."

And they have. Look at this.

Better A Glass Of Wine With The Kids Than A Bottle Of Gin Under The Bed
The authoritarian paternalism of the Labour party may have been swept aside for the present but Labour's Politically Correct Thought Police are still spreading the message of Populist Authoritarian control freakerey. Rosie Murray - West writes here on the latest attempt to demonise parents who drink in front of their children... click here to read full post

There is no more potent drug than self righteousnes of course and the do gooders, who care about us so much they want us all to live lives as sad, empty, miserable and joyless as theirs not because they care only about protecting us from our own childish folly but because they are hooked on self righteousness as completely as any smackhead is hooked on the needle. These sad little fucks hate themselves so much the only way they can live with themselves is by contantly finding excuses to try to poke their noses into other people's lives and lecture us on how enjoying this wonderful life we have ben given in this wonderful world we inhabit will only lead to senility and death. Deluding themselves they have saved someone from the slippery slope to self destruction is the only way they can holod on to any self esteem.

Well everybody gets old and dies and personally I would rather enjoy myself until nature curtails my fun that be a miserable fucker in the hope of living three minutes longer. So look, you hand wringing, do gooding, oh-so-caring fucking fuckwits, everybody who has a normal life hates you more than you hate yourselves. So fuck right off. Where's my corkscrew.

The Wisdom Of Urgent Deficit Reduction Reaches Obamaville
by Ian R Thorpe

Not long ago I became involved in a thread with people who thought they were discussing economic philosophy. If fact they were simply doorstep evangelists for The Obamessiah and his lonytoons economics. As usual with people who cling to the notion that Obama is a competent President as tightly as working class Americans "cling to their guns and Bibles" (hey, I never said I don't hit below the belt) they make a wild statement and then defend it simply by saying no intelligent person could possibly disagree, in this case it was that everybody with any sense can see more "stimulus spending" (aka running up unsupportable debts to fund vanity projects) is essential to return the economy to growth.

A more realistic view and one that anyone with two brain cells that communicate with each other can see the validity of is that when you haven't enough money coming in to cover necessities (interest on existing debt, welfare, public sector salaries, the military, pensions etc.) it's a really really bad idea to put yourself in hock to loan sharks so you can buy a new car, a wardrobe full of designer clothes and maintain the luxury lifestyle.

At the G20 summit Obama demanded other nations buy American bonds to fund his insane spending committments. As has happened before the nations with surpluses are very well aware that economists are lying, there is no recovery in sight. public spending stimulates nothing. There is nothing to be gained by creating public sector jobs and spending money you don't have on state funded projects only deepens the problems.

I was asked to explain the basic philosophy of Keynesian economics having tried to make it clear there is a big difference between what Keynes wrote and was semi literates like Paul Krugman who have spent all their lives cocooned in academic institutions think Keynes wrote: i.e. governments can just print money to fund unlimited public spending.

Now I will explain something that is way beyond dimwits like Obama and fuckwits like Krugman. The central banks reduced the base rate, the rate at whuch they lend, to just above zero. The thinking was that by being able to borrow at such cheap rates the banks would be encouraged to lend to business and consumers at more commercial rates. The deficit economics of the Obama administration, Britains Labour government until a couple of months ago and other debtor nations mean that those governments have to sell bonds to fund their deficit requirements. So what do you think the banks are doing (bear in mind bankers might be shits but they're not stupid) Think it through, go on ...... I can hear the cogs grinding, you're getting there.....

"duh"

I THINK THEY'VE GOT IT! BY GEORGE THEY'VE GOT IT!!!

The Banks are borrowing from government at 0.5% or less and lending it straight back (buying tresury bonds) at 3%+

Would anybody like to explain to us how that stimulates anything except the profits of the banks at the taxpayers' expense.

Below we link to a good article from The Daily SItrrer. Put together by John De Roe, a former commercial banking specialist and now financial controller of a medium sized municipal authority, a mash up in which the arguments against increasing indebtedness are explained by two British Liberal economists and an American whose political provenance I am unsure of.

The public sector produces nothing of value. Tax eaters do not earn revenue they only consume it. In a world of finite resources belief in infinite growth is stupidity. We have to limit the size of the public sector to what the private sector can support. It should be a no brainer.

The Chinese and Indians are no longer buying US Treasury Bonds. Get real. John De Roe (topmost link) did not know what the outcome of the G20 summit would be when he compiled his piece and when I decided to delay replying to questioners it was simply because I had too many other things on. I guess, because in the interval the world leaders have told President Big Ears "Your credit is no good any more" and patiently explained to him yet again he is President of The United States not The World I won the argument hands down.

When Less Was More
by Ian R Thorpe

This blog likes to bring you original article but is happy to serve as a highlighter for other controversialist writers, pointing you towards writers prepared to go againt the tide of mainsteam opinion, to chalenge the orthodoxy. Today the link is to an article by the excellent Deborah Orr, a true liberal who is commenting on the persistent whining of the progressive left about public spending cuts in the coalition's budget. The terminally naive "progressive left" are labouring under the misapprehension that the debt funded good times can co on for ever, all the government has to do is keep printing money. Good food, luxury goods, clothes and holidays have been ridiculously cheap for 30 years. That's why the drop in living standards will be tough. All we can do however is brace ourselves and get ready to ride out the storm.

Deborah Orr writes: Already, I look back, like some ancient matriarch in a bad television movie, telling the story of the world through her memories. I'm only 47, and I cannot believe how much life in Britain has changed in my time. (For a start, "only 47" wasn't said much in 1962, except perhaps on the occasion of death.) I think of my late father, when I was little... Why The Financial Crisis Is Going To Hurt

And if that depressed you take a look at this clip from 1970s TV programme Tiswaz, a show that typified and era when we all had less but seemed to be much happier. It will give you a lift.

Now Sheffied Paedophile Grooming Scandal Explodes In Establishment's Face
Vulnerable children in Sheffield were let down by police and social workers, it was claimed today as the the latest of a stream of sex scandals involving the grooming and exploitation of vulnerable children was revealed.

Cash-strapped NHS Wales Wastes A Fortune On Politically Correct Non-Jobs

The Ebola Outbreak - Natural Disaster Or Man Made Catastrophe The Daily Stirrer has always tried to bring you a controversial and off-message view of major news stories. We were ahead of the game on Malaysia Airlines Flights MH370 and Flight MH17.

And once again as evidence emerges the odds are swinging in our favour.

New Global Crisis Imminen, New Geneva Report Warns The Geneva Report refers to a “poisonous combination of high and rising global debt and slowing nominal GDP [gross domestic product], driven by both slowing real growth and falling inflation”. The total burden of world debt, private and public, has risen from 160 per cent of national income in 2001 to almost 200 per cent after the crisis struck in 2009 and 215 per cent in 2013. “Contrary to widely held beliefs, the world has not yet begun to delever and the global debt to GDP ratio is still growing, breaking new highs,” the report said.

One of the reasons the Rotherham scandal happened was the politically correct left scremed racism whenever issue was raised. Immigrants are not above the law.

The Third Gulf War Has Started - Should Britain Get Involved

We can beat the Islamic State without shedding HUMAN blood.

Derbyshire Chief Constable Claims He Was Forbidden To Arrest Former Labour Minister Or Search His Home">South Yorkshire Police Commissioner Shaun Wright Finally Resigns Over Rotherham Child Abuse Scandal
Police chiefs blocked a paedophile probe into a top politician 25 years ago, one of the country’s most senior officers said yesterday.

Disaster Dave's Latest Screw Up On The International Stage
Tomorrow (26 September, 2014) the UK Parliament will meet to vote on whether Britain should support Prime Minister David Cameron and US President and Warmonger - in - Chief Barack Hussein Obama in launching yet another war in the middle east, this time against the forces of the Islamic Caliphate, a fundamentalist organisation set up by groups funded armed and trained by the USA and its allies in their quest to overthrow the regime of Bashar Al Assad in Syria.

War In Iraq: Confused? You Will Be
I'm always a bit wary about referring to The Daily Mail because mere mention of that rather sensationalist but immensely popular newspaper (compare its circulation figures with those of The Guardian or The Independent) is likely to attract a Two Minutes Hate session from Britain's biggest fascist movement,

Love Like Chains (poem)
There are needy lovers and there are controlling lovers (the lovers in my case have always been female but I know men fall into these categories too). They often seem to be modelled from the same clay. Having always been self contained person who liked to stand apart from the crowd I have never did very well in love affairs with either type. This poem is not adressed to a specific person but an amalgam.

Miliband Promises Same Old Shite - Not A Word About Action Against Paedophile Sex Gangs
Labour leader Ed Miliband's keynote speech at the Labour Party conference woyuld have to be the best speech of his life if he hoped to be Prime Minister after next years election, the consensus of opinon said. Ed's friends and opponents awaited the speech with very different hopes and expectations. in the end as Ed dodged the bg issues, the economy and debt, law and order, immigration and Europe, it was probably his enemies who were happier.

In Praise Of Sluts - Tits Out For The Boys Miley
In the last 24 hours both Marianne Faithfull and Jacqueline Bisset have criticised today's young women for dressing provocatively, the teasers for a story in today's news said.
Marrianne Faithfull, no slouch in the sluttiness stakes herself back in the 1960s but to a teenage male all the more appealing for that (I still get a little tingle when I look at a Mars Bar), told ITV News that Miley Cyrus, Rihanna and other good looking young pop tarts are, quite simply, sluts. She gave her reasoning thus:

'There is Only One Planet': The Bemusing Claims of London's Climate Warriors
Apparently blissfully unaware of their hypocrisy, marchers have left placards emblazoned with complaints about the government and environmental issues strewn around on the pavement. The thousands of left-wing activists who descended shouting and stomping through London’s streets no doubt moved on to bars, restaurants or their homes to smugly congratulate themselves on having done their bit for Mother Nature, unsurprisingly not only expecting other people to pay for everything they demand,

A Bunch Of Self Obsessed Air Heads Only Interested In Publicity
The headline sums up some of the speakers or yesterday's climate change protest in London. But we know scientists are vacuous wannabe celebrities. The surprising thing was the showbiz and media luvvies showed themselves even more stupid and out of touch with reality. Take Emma Thompson. A fine actress but we should remember her job is pretending to be somebody else. and having spent most of her life pretending to be somebody else, when ...

Nationalism the new target for left wing screechers
The screechers have a new target for their hate, Nationalism. OMFG, I am sick of seeing on Facebook and other Sheeple sites posts from the army of bandwagon followers condemning nationalism. Hate attacks on Andy Murray because he voted Yes for Scottish Independence were deplorable, the bloke is entitled to his opinion FFS. The lefties hater did not stop there however, attacks on his mother are just disgusting (but entirely typical of the Labour voting, free speech hating, all-things-British loathing, bourgeois left scum.)

Rotherham Childcare Chief Quits Over Mass Sex Abuse Scandal

After weeks of mounting pressure and in the wake of resignations by council political leaders and senior exectutives and also of the recently elected Police Crime Commissioner for the scandal hit town, Joyce Thacker the head of children's services at Rotherham council has finally quit. Following the revelation of a massive cover up by elected representative, police and care professionals who went to considerable lengths to avoid acting on allegations of organised sex abuse gangs consisting mostly of

GCHQ employs more than 100 dyslexic spies. So what?
A lot of people in comment threads seemed eager to get their knickers in a twist this morning about a story headlined: GCHQ employs more than 100 dyslexic and dyspraxic spies. The story tells how the government snoopers intelligence agency down in Cheltenham uses dyslexics' ability to analyse complex information in a 'dispassionate, logical and analytical' in the fight against terror.

Obama administration ‘blocking' information from the press
Uncovering information that should be available to the public has become increasingly difficult under the presidency of Barack Obama, an Associated Press bureau chief says. In some cases, it surpasses the secrecy of the George W. Bush administration. The White House's penchant for secrecy does not just apply to the federal government, according to AP's Washington bureau chief, Sally Buzbee.

An Interesting Perspective From Across The Pond On The Scottish Referendum Result
The almost inevitable accusations of fraud and vote rigging are beginning to emerge in the wake of the Scottish independence referendum. Surprisingly the likely culprit most fingers are pointing at is not the SNP, leaders of the YES campaign or the Westminster government which wanted to avoid the embarrassment of a no, but the Euronazis in Brussels whose plans for a single European nation would have suffered from a YES vote.

Submerged forests' drowned by ancient climate change revealed by 2014 storms.
Here's yet another smack in the mouth for those smug, condescending scientists who talk down to the rest of us. Far from being a new thing, climsste change was affecting the environment at the beginning of the Bronze age. How many fossil fuel burning power stations did the beaker people have then, and how many Chelsea tractors were tearing up and down the ridgeways?

1000 Scientists Break Ranks On Global Warming - Laugh? I Nearly Shat
You've all heard from members of the Church Of Scienceology Cult about how there was total consensus (despite a lack of empirical evidence) that the planet is warming so rabidly there are now no ice caps at either the North or South Poles, that the last polar bear perished when someone ate its Fox's Glacier Mint and that there are now ...

How To Be Totally Uncool (By TryingTo Look Cooler Than You Are)
Many of the 4700 people camped outside the Apple store on New York's 5th Avenue in the picture above are unemployed (and very likely being paid cash in hand by others to queue for days). Few, if any, among either the campers or the buyers will spend $3,600 for a "gold" iPhone like someone in China just did. But those who are buying will gladly pay ...

South Yorkshire Police Commissioner Shaun Wright Finally Resigns Over Rotherham Child Abuse Scandal The man who bears most responsibility for failure to investigate the Rotherham child abuse scandal has finally resigned after three weeks of excuses and evasions. Police Commissioner Wright has been under pressure ever since a report by Prof Alexis Jay (see below) revealed a huge level of child abuse in the South Yourkshire town of Rotherham. The organised sex crime rings had been operating for ...

UKIP MEP Received Death Threats After Criticizing Rotherham's Labour Council Council Over Sex Abuse Scandal Jane Collins, the UKIP Member of the European Parliament for Yorkshire, has been speaking out about the failure of the senior police officers, the social services department managers in Rotherham and leaders of the Labour controlled council all of whom failed to act on allegations that groups of mainly Pakistani men were carrying out the organised sexual abuse of under age girls who found themselves in the care of the authorities.

Bill Gates Foundation Giving Millions to Top University In Order To Influence GMO “Debate” - It Must Be Dodgy
Former Microsoft CEO and mega mogul Bill Gates has long utilized his vast fortune to push genetically modified organisms (GMOs) through his Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, but Gates’ efforts have been met with sharp criticism from millions of grassroots activists both home and abroad.

Rotherham: In the face of such evil, who is the racist now?
Here's a question for wannabe Mastermind contestants. If South Yorkshire Police can mount a raid on the home of pop singer Sir Cliff Richard, two hundred miles away from their patch in pursuit of evidence linked to a single and unsubstantiated allegation of child sex abuse 30 years ago, why were the same South Yorkshire Police force unable to conduct a proper investigation into multiple allegations against men who raped 1,400 children over 16 years?

Denis MacShane: I was too much of a 'liberal leftie' and should have done more to investigate child abuse
In a rare mome

nt of candour disgraced former Labour Member Of Parliament for Rotherham, Dennis MacShane admitted he could have done more to protect the victims of sex abuse gangs in his constituency who preyed on young girls in the local authority care system. While maintaing he knew of no specific allegations MacShane said he could have investigated rumours circulating in the town.

Rotherham Abuse Cover Up Cover UP
Not so long ago we were venting our spleen about the selection of Judge Butler - Sloss to head up an inquiry about how allegations of paedophile offences by well known celebrities, politicians and establishment figures were covered up for many years. It turned out Lady Butler Sloss was the sister of the now deceased Attorney General Sir Michael Havers who was directly involved in

Now Sheffied Paedophile Grooming Scandal Explodes In Establishment's Face
Vulnerable children in Sheffield were let down by police and social workers, it was claimed today as the the latest of a stream of sex scandals involving the grooming and exploitation of vulnerable children was revealed.

Cash-strapped NHS Wales Wastes A Fortune On Politically Correct Non-Jobs
The financial problems in the Welsh NHS do not seem to have dampened its Labour leadership's appetite for wasting money on oddly titled politically correct jobs. The Taxpayers' Alliance have published a list of 43 pointless jobs, which are costing the public £1.5m a year

How Western Intervention Turned Africa's Richest Nation Into A Failed State It is three years this week since the Western-backed assassination of Libya's dictator, Muammar 'Mad Dog' Gaddafi. The western bombing campaign in support of a rag bag army of Islamic religious fantatics, tribal warlords and self interested gangsters led to the fall and murder of Gadaffi and members of his family and the collapse of Africa’s richest and most morder nation.

Death In The Desert - An Ill-Fated Attempt to Reach Fortress Europe.
Criminal gangs in Africa and south East Asia are recruiting desperate people for passages to Europe with promises of jobs and housing and tales of socialist utopias where the government pays all comers a good wage for doing nothing. Too often the would be immigrants are abandoned in hostile country or loaded onto unsafe boats or simply dunmped on foreign shore with no money, no documents and no hope.

Birmingham Child Abuse Scandal Set To Break - Will Dwarf Rotherham, Rochdale
Hot on the heels of child sex abuse scandals in Rotherham and Rochdale, another, bigger scandal is set to erupt in brimingham and the West Midlands. Gangs made up of predominantly Pakistani men, using the same modus operandi as the South Yorkshire and Greater Manchester abuse rings, targeted young girls and boys from broken home who were unfortunate enought to find themselves in the care of the local authority. Once groomed the children were raped and prostituted

The Ebola Outbreak - Natural Disaster Or Man Made Catastrophe The Daily Stirrer has always tried to bring you a controversial and off-message view of major news stories. We were ahead of the game on Malaysia Airlines Flights MH370 and Flight MH17. We went out on a limb again over the Ebola fever outbreak in west Africa, arguing that it looked more like a biological weapons experiment gone wrong that a natural disaster. And once again as evidence emerges the odds are swinging in our favour.

UKIP Withstands Euro-Attack, Reforms EFDD Group Just Days After 'Blackmail
Just a few days after an underhanded and undemocratic move to sideline the European Parliament (EP) anti-federalist group, the eurosceptics have outflanked neo - Nazi EP boss Martin Schulz by signing a new member. Formerly independent MEP Robert Iwaszkiewicz said he had joined in protest against undemocratic EU leadership.

European Parliament: Dictatorial Martin Schulz dissolves EEFD Group of Euro-skeptics
The Daily Stirrer has always said that the european Union was not an association of free states collaborating to make trade easier, but a bureaucratic dictatorship under the palsied heel of which the freedom and sovereigfnty of democratic nations wouldf be crushed. Here's an example of an EU Bureaucrat autocratically overruling the democratically expressed with of the voters.

Leaked TPP Chapter Exposes Sweet Deals for Big Pharma, Big Media and US Bully Tactics Crushing Smaller States Objections

Yesterday (17/10/2014) WikiLeaks released an updated version of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Intellectual Property Rights chapter, along with a statement accusing those involved in the secret negotiations of creating a Big Pharma fiendly deal that would will hinder access to affordable medicines globally for those earning average wages or less, remove most of the remaining safeguards against online surveillance, and erode civil liberties while benefiting corporate and other governmental interests.

Ciggy's £1.50 each. I smell an opportunity
A World Health Organisation conference on the most serious public health issue today (not ebola but smoking would you believe) is doing some very nasty things in secret. All in all their policy smells of prohibition. Oh well, that's good news for organised crime at least.

Hidden Agenda Behind the new Free Trade Deals
In this post from Wolf Street and others in this composite article, along with our many standalone posts on the so called Free Trade Agreements, TTIP (Trans Atlantic Trade And Investment Partnership) and TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) we have stressed again and again that the seemingly benign phrase "free trade" is not used to signify the opening of markets dominated by global corporations to competition from small, efficient local businesses.

Second And Even More Lethal Strain Of Ebola Now Infecting People In Congo - Le Monde
We may now be facing two deadly Ebola outbreaks, a new strain of the virus which so far has killed 71 percent of those infected has been discovered in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). This is a higher mortality rate than the strain that has killed over 3000 people in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea.

More Child Abuse Cases Like Rotherham, Rochdale To Be Revealed Says Top Police Officer
It seems inevitable that more child-abuse cases involving gangs preying on vulnerable boys and girls, like the recent cases in Rotherham and Rochdale will come to light. Simon Bailey, Chief Constable of Norfolk Police claims that the problem is far bigger than had been previously thought with up to 600,000 children having suffered some kind of sexual abuse, the National Household Survey of Adverse Childhood Experiences estimates.

Ebola, Stock Market, Nuclear War. It's all going tits up. WTF?
Woke up this morning (I know that sounds like the opening of a blues song, but bear with me), leisurely breakfast, watched the news - Osborne wittering about how well they economy was doing (which was an ominous sign), read for a while, drove Mrs T down the shops. Came in, turned on the computer.

Game of Groans: David Cameron and Ed Miliband will be torn apart as the election nears
Will Dave or Ed be Prime Minister after the 2015 general election or will a sicteenth centry witch fould up the best lain schemes of mice and men. 2015 could turn out to be the Demdike Man election, not through macick, but metaphor. The Witch of Pendle representas a communitity and culture that has been abandoned by the self righteous, politically correct concensus politics of the bourgeois establishment. Are the working and middle classes about to strike back.

The Real Significance Of The Jimmy Savile Case
Back to the Savile case, which while Anna Raccoon makes valid points about unreliability of witness evidence on events which occurred many years ago, they smug, authority worshipping people who dismiss our concerns are truly naive when saying "its just a lot of fuss about nothing, only Daily Mail readers are taken in by it," are the ones who really miss the point.

NHS Money Wasting Machine And The One Budget That Is Never Cut
After the usual empty promises made at the annual conferences of the three main political parties - all three party leaders swore that only their party can save the National Heath Service (NHS) eternally a key isue in UK politics, we decided it was time our we too a close look at why NHS finances are always in a mess. We assigned the task to our team of old gits with a vast store of business experience behind them and no fears of suffering career damage as the Politically Correct Thought Police exact retribution for the crime of being 'off message'.

The Immigration Problem
The politicians may run a mile when the topic is mentioned, the Islington Screechers and medi luvvies may cover their ears and go la-la-la-la whenever the topic comes up but there is no denying immigration is the big issue in Britain today. Labour's open doors immigration policy was a disaster, the coalition have failed to address it for fear of upsetting the politically correct thought police. Is it any wonder UKIP, the only party that will talk about immigration, is doing so well?

The Ongoing Propaganda War Behind GMOs Exposed
The United States has been paying farmers for over two decades to NOT produce food, yet biotech would have us believe that genetically modified organisms are necessary to feed the world. This is but one of the many lies they have perpetrated, all the while hiding the real truth behind GM crops. Genetically modified organisms and the chemicals which support their growth are just an outcropping of the military industrial complex and the war industry.

Emirates Airways CEO Thinks He Knows What Happened to Flight MH370
We can sometimes keep news stories running for several months by pointing out the sheer irrationality of those who scream 'conspiracy theory' and demand that we all believe the government / mainstream media version. One of the two biggest stories in 2014 was the complete disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 on a routine flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. Seven months later not a trace of the Boeing 777 aircraft or any of its passengers has been located. As the official explanations grow increasingly more ludicrous ...

MH-17 Report False Flag Exposed After Revelation Passenger Was Wearing Oxygen Mask

When exactly a month ago the supposedly objective, impartial Netherlands released its official, 34-page preliminary report of the MH-17 crash over Ukraine, presumably based on black box data, air traffic control records, and other “authentic, verified” information, there were precisely zero mentions of “oxygen“, “mask” or “oxygen mask.”

Things That Make You Boggle ... Like The Misplaced Confidence Of Academics
Why are economics academics always so sure that their predictions are correct. Given the abysmal record on economists on calling the economic trends correctly even after they have happened let alone ahead of the trend, you would think exponsents of the dismal science would be a little more cautious in proclaiming their gusses as evidence backed facts. They never seen to learn however.

European Union Euro - Nazis Block Democratic Challenge To TTIP Travesty
Yet again the news slowly leaking out of the Trans Atlantic Trade And Investment Partnershi negotiations tess us just why there is so much secrecy surrounding this trade treaty being negotiated between the EU and the USA that even our elected governments are not allowed to know what the final treaty will include. Be afraid, be very afraid.

Police to Investigate Allegations of Labour-LibDem Rochdale 'Deal' on Paedophiles
Fresh allegations have emerged regarding the systematic sexual abuse of Chil;dren in Rochdale. This time the story focuses not on the Pakistani men at the centre of the abuse gangs, but the political cover up by Labour and Liberal Democrat elected officials on Rochdale Metrtoplitan Borough Council who, it is claimed orchestrated the cover-up by Labour and Liberal Democrat Party officials in the Greater Manchester Area.

Obama and FUKUS Axis Air Strikes On ISIS Will Make Things Worse
The bombing of ISIS, the Islamic State is well under way in Iraq and Syria, and as predicted the American, British and French led campaign is already making things worse for civilians among whom the ISIS fighters are dispersed. And of course, far from making the west safer, it is stirring up more hatred against us in the Islamic world.

Bad News for the alarmists: 'Missing Heat' from Non-Existent 'Global Warming' isn't Hiding in the Ocean After All
The already mortaly wounded cause of climate taxes alarmism has bean dealt another blow in a new study published by a NASA research project carried out at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, USA.
Satellite observations and empirical measurements gathered by Argo temperature probes enabled the NASA team to calculate temperature variations and thermal expansion in ocean waters over 6000 feet deep.

Evil Labour Government Helped Private Companies Profit From NHS
If you live in Heywood and Middleton and were thinking of voting for the greedy, paedophile loving, elitists' party, Labour because you have been taken in by the lies peddled at the Labour conference that the wicked Tories plan to privatize the NHS, think again.

UK Health Watchdog: Studies Show Mobile Phones Cause Brain Tumours
Over the past last two years, following publication of metastudies like World Health Organisation's International Agency For Research On Cancer report on the effects of radio frequency electromagnetic waves, there is new evidence that mobile phones use can be dangerous to our health. A less technical summary of that is available from Cancer Research UK. Wireless phones, even those DECT systems you use with your landline so you can wander around with the handset, emit radio-frequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMFs) when in use...

Another EU Wannabe Declares War On Free Speech A very dangerous and worrying trend, which has been gathering momentum for some time, has entered a new dimension in recent weeks. Political and business leaders around the world are blatantly calling for the censorship on reporting and discussing news in terms that are 'unhelpful' to their aims and ambitions along with further restrictions on free speech.

US Centre for Disease Control Opposes Blocking Air Travel from West Africa to Stop Ebola Right of return and gender dimension more important than stopping spread of disease? Well that sounds about right for the admistration of The Rent Boy President. Always put acting in a politically correct way before common sense. How about this for a totally fickwitted attempt to deal with a crisis (or mayve a smart but totally evil way to create a crisis.

Another Big Result For The 'Conspiracy Theorists' - US CIA Corrupts Western Journalists.
Ever wondered why anybody trying to report news truthfully or initiate intelligent discussion is branded a conspiracy theorist, especially if their news or opinion is critical of the American government of American business interests? Read the content of this page and you will know a lot more about what is going on.

The Crminalisation Of Dissent
There is a growing trend in what we like to think of as the free world to curtail civil rights, transfer national sovereignty from elected law making bodies to supra national bureaucracies and enact new laws restricting free speech and press freedom. Largely fictitious threats such as terrorism, Islamic fundamentalism and climate change are being used to justify this. but are the levels of risk sufficient to justify the destruction of democracy?

EU Kommisar Admits Brussels Is At War With Democracy
The German EU Commissioner Günther Oettinger, in an astonishing rant accused "bishops, non-governmental organizations and "Ami-Go-Home-Altgruppen" (whatever they are) of undemocratic agitation against the EU's free trade agreements. Oettinger was referring to the Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) the undemocratic deal being negotiated in secret between the European Union and the corporate paymasters who control the US Administration.

Proof Bill Gates is Linked to Ebola as it Hits Dallas, Texas?
Ebola fever has landed in America and predictably sparked panic (see headline). The question evert=yone asks is: "How much danger are me and my family in." The questions they should be asking are: "Why does the US Government Department Of Defense hold a patent on the Ebola virus; and: Why has a team from Tulane University and the US Department of Defence biological weapons research project been experimenting on the Ebola virus for several years?

Surveillance Society Ever had that feeling you are being watched, unseen eyes are monitoring your every move, recording your every action, even knowing what you think. We live in a surveillance society but few really understand how intrusive the activiries of the watchers are. Welcome to the Panopticon. Jeremy Bentham's ideal prison has become a metaphor for the world we have created.

New Global Crisis Imminen, New Geneva Report Warns The Geneva Report refers to a “poisonous combination of high and rising global debt and slowing nominal GDP [gross domestic product], driven by both slowing real growth and falling inflation”. The total burden of world debt, private and public, has risen from 160 per cent of national income in 2001 to almost 200 per cent after the crisis struck in 2009 and 215 per cent in 2013. “Contrary to widely held beliefs, the world has not yet begun to delever and the global debt to GDP ratio is still growing, breaking new highs,” the report said.

Farage Reckless Facing Rabid Left Wing Fanatics
Following the defection to UKIP of Conservative MP Mark Reckless, who yesterday shocked the media and political establishment (everyone else knew it was on the cards.) by announcing his switch from con to Kipper from the podium at the closing session of UKIP's conference, the Kippers latest recruit and his new leader yesterday faced angry but ineffectual protests

Vaclav Klaus, the free world's last honest politician: the West’s lies about Russia are monstrous.
There are few people in politics who will say in public the things that really think, thanks to the hypersensitivity of the American political establishment and their enthusiasm for bombing the crap out of anyone who upsets members of their anointed minorities. Its refreshing then to learn of comments made by veteran Czech Republic leader, putting the boot into the cowardly mealy mouthed sum who pass for conservative and libertarian politicians in the English Speaking countries.

Why Do Government Information Technology Projects always Screw Up? Because Everything Governmrent Touches Becomes Political
While scientists burble excitedly about the internet of things, computer-brain interfaces that will enable the government to control us from data centres, creating human / computers hybrids and other science fantasy rubbish as if any of it stands a chance of becoming reality, government Information Technology managers, with almost unlimited resources at their disposal, can't even manage to cobble together a simple database and search routine. The failure of the e borders project is the latest in a long line of screw ups.

Ukip takes on free market corporatists: Britain's immigration debate gets interesting
Immigration was the subject of the big debate at UKIP's conference in doncaster today. With the Rotherham paedophile scandal which involved Muslim men in the immigrant community abusing young white girls as open sore in South Yorkshire politics at the moment the topic was long overdue for serious debate. One of the reasons the Rotherham scandal happened was the politically correct left scremed racism whenever issue was raised. Immigrants are not above the law.

The Third Gulf War Has Started - Should Britain Get Involved
For the third time in twenty five years a British Prime ~Minister has led the nation into a war in Iraq. It's understandable that Iraquis might be a bit pissed off with us. This time the threat is not a brutal dictator like Saddam hussein or Muammar Gadaffi, the Libyan leader we helped depose, but Islamic State, a concept, an idea, but also a rabble of bloodthirsty maniacs funded by European and American money, aremed with European and American weapons and trained by European and American 'military advisers.

War In Iraq? Lard Bombs Away (SATIRE)
As usual Boggart Blog is totally against Britain becoming embroiled in another sectarian conflict in the middle east (the theme tune of which will be I Hate You Babe by Sunni and Shia.) But rather than send our clapped out, thirty year old warplanes to fire rockets and heavy calibre cannons and drop bombs on the IS, bearing in mind these guys are all fundamentalist Muslims we have a better idea. We can beat the Islamic State without shedding HUMAN blood.
