Nuclear Power Risks or How To Stop Worrying And Love The Atom
by Ian R Thorpe.

The Greens, fear and panic merchants, cap and trade profiteers, carbon warmageddonists and usual suspects have been in a funk about the Fukushima nuclear power station accident, demanding we shut down nuclear generation as well as coal mines and oil wells. But the lesson of Fukushima is we should stop worrying and learn to love the atom.

There are a group of people in every English speaking society who call themselves 'greens' 'progressives', 'liberals' and humanists who are determined it seems to shut down western civilization. What should we call them? They are neither liberal (definitely NOT liberal, in fact they are the most illiberal social or political group since the Holy Inquisition was dissolved,) nor progressive. Green they may be but only in the sense of being naive, unworldly and gullible. They are certainly not progressive as they obsess only about civil rights and equality but believe equality must be imposed by government rather than being achieved by individuals collaborating, and as for their being humanists, since when did humanism have dogmas, orthodoxies and items of faith we associate with religious extremism.

A good appellation for these people would be Pusillanimous Poltroons (yes I know it's a syllogism and I just thought I'd point that out before some 'progressive liberal' tries to tell me it's an oxymoron, not that there is anything wrong with oxymorons.) A pusillanimous person is timid, cowardly, vacillating or faint hearted. A poltroon is a coward, an untrustworthy or disloyal person. So we have a cowardly coward. What better way to describe people who run around like headless chickens spreading fear and panic at the least provocation.

For several years now these people have been in a funk about increasing levels of carbon dioxide in air killing us all. Then they were quaking and crying Lord Government, save us when a panic about a very minor illness grew legs. Now they are all afraid that everybody will die of radiation poisoning because of an accident at a nuclear power station in Japan.

Let me tell you something about the accident at the Fukushima plant. It does not prove that nuclear power is too dangerous to be used, it shows how safe nuclear power is. Today, almost two weeks after the accident in which a multi reactor power station was damaged by a major earthquake, one of the biggest since records began, some workers (all volunteers) working to make the damaged reactors safe have been exposed to significant doses of radiation and a warning has been issued to people in Tokyo that tap water should not be given to babies.

It should be pointed out here that the nuclear complex was built almost on top of a very unstable geological fault. Can you imagine the consequences if an oil refinery or a chemical factory had been similarly damaged?

Almost forty years ago a senior nuclear safety official in the United States published a memorandum to colleagues. It warned that a key bulwark against a catastrophic accident in the kind of reactors now in meltdown at Fukushima was so flawed it should be banned.

He got a reaction within a week. The idea of a ban was attractive, wrote a more senior official, but implementing it could well be the end of nuclear power.

This exchange is just one of a series of warnings over the years about the safety of the General Electric Mark I Boiling Water Reactors, which comprise five of the six installed at the Fukushima complex..

As workers battle to contain the monster (Godzilla?) unleashed at the complex by last week's earthquake and tsunami, it is still too early to ascertain what precisely has caused the partial meltdowns at three of the reactors, and the exposure of highly radioactive spent fuel in a storage pool at a fourth. But the story of the warnings sheds some light on attitudes in the young nuclear industry which may, only now be coming to light.

The author of that memo September 20, 1972 was Dr Stephen Hanauer, then working at the US Atomic Energy Commission. He was concerned that weaknesses in the design of the container vessel around the reactor core the main shield against the escape of radioactivity could cause it to fail in an accident, leading to dangerous releases.

He pointed out that the vessel was smaller than was "conventional" and lent itself to the build-up of hydrogen which seems to have played a part in the events at Fukushima becoming "a more serious problem". He recommended that the commission "adopt a policy of discouraging further use" of that kind of containment and "that such designs not be accepted for construction permits filed after a date to be decided (say two years after the policy is adopted)".

On September 25, Dr Joseph Hendrie, the deputy director for technical review at the commission's directorate of licensing, weighed in with his reaction. The idea of such a ban, he wrote in a memo of his own, "is an attractive one in some ways", adding that alternative containments had "the notable advantage of brute simplicity".

Despite the doubts the Mark I is still going strong. Twenty three are still in operation in the US alone (though there are none in Britain) and one, which has been operating in Vermont since 1973, was granted another 20 years of life the day before the earthquake struck off Japan.

Since then reactors have been designed to be much safer, with the European Pressurised Reactor (EPR) planned to be built here in Britain over the next few years especially so. But official documents show that the EPR will produce several times more of the radioactive iodine and caesium that would be rapidly released in an accident than do present-day reactors.

The trouble is that human beings have a way of overriding safety systems. The 1957 Windscale fire occurred when a physicist threw a switch too soon when carrying out a routine operation. The Three Mile Island accident was caused by a whole series of human errors. At Chernobyl, operators under pressure to complete a test deliberately disabled every one of its safety systems until, in the words of the chief investigator into the catastrophe, the reactor "was free to do as it wished".

Try as we might, as long as we need electricity there will be accidents. Yet, despite the reactions of some the pusillanimous poltroons and some attention seeking politicians to the Japanese situation, abandoning nuclear power is not an option, especially in a world some say must urgently combat climate change while others, the more worldly, recognise that as oil stocks are diminishing demand is growing. From a safety point of view while nuclear generators can never be 100% safe we are better off with new reactors rather than old ones.

Long ago we sold our souls for electricity. Now we must learn to live with the consequences of that Faustian bargain. If we can accept that then it is possible to look at the Fukushima incident and see that far from revealing the risks of nuclear energy it proves how very safe nuclear power plants are.

The first thing to understand is that radiation has been demonised by the green movement and the congenitally fearful. It is not as dangerous as you have been led to think. Many people will be eager to challenge me on this so I will warn, do not go running off to Wikipedia to bring back the first thing you can find that contradicts me. I am always amused by the naivete of webheads and wikiheads who believe all the information in the world is available on the web. Some information has value and only an idiot would destroy the value of an asset by putting it on the web and thus in the public domain. Anything you find on the web is either so well known it is no longer of value or it is wrong.

First, what is radiation?

Since the formation of matter either by a cosmic event or through a divine act (we're not having THAT argument here) atoms, from which all the diverse forms of matter are made, have been shooting off sub - particles and emitting or radiating energy waves. Until the 19th century nobody understood this, then a number of projects to investigate the nature of matter revealed not only that the atom was the most basic building block of matter but a number of amazing things related to the behaviour of atoms. One of the things researchers learned was that nothing could be done to change the atomic emissions. Applying heat, pressure, electricity, or any other force made no difference whatsoever. Emission appeared to be an unchangeable property of the substances. There are three type of radiation, electro - magnetic, mecanical and particle. When talking about nuclear accident it is particle radiation, the intensified rays emitted by unstable atoms, that concern us.

First however consider the beneficial side of radiation. It is radiation that made possible X rays, MRI scanners used in medicine and also radio therapy is used to treat certain cancers.

We'll skip over loads of really really interesting stuff about atoms and nuclear forces here (it is interesting actually but is not necessary for this article)

In a nuclear reactor atoms are smashed to release energy in the form of heat. This results in some atoms losing electrons and so, because the number of protons locked in the nucleus is not equal to the number of electrons orbiting the nucleus the atom is unstable. The same thing happens in an explosion caused by a nuclear weapon but the radiation radiation is released into the environment rather than being contained. In a nuclear attack or an accident apart from the initial radiation of the blast, there is residual radiation that results when stable matter, especially blast debris, captures excess neutrons from the explosion and becomes radioactive.Radiation occurs naturally at levels which are harmless but exposure to excess radiation is harmful to most living organisms, and prolonged exposure to very high levels of radiation is usually fatal. Sunlight is a kind of radiation however and people can die from too much sun.

The reason nuclear radiation harms us is that the radioactivity emitting unstable atoms try to repair themselves by by grabbing an electron from an atom they encounter that is prepared to yield one of its electrons. Such nanosluts are most likely to be heavy metals such as uranium but these are present in the environment though not in great quantities in soil, the food we eat, and from industrial processes.

The free radicals you are advised by doctors and dieticians to purge from your body by eating anti oxidants are atoms or molecules containing an atom that has at least one unpaired electron. The anti oxidant attaches itself to the unstable atom and neutralises it.

So radiation is not an Enochian demon then but something quite natural and like many things in nature safe, even beneficial in controlled doses but dangerous if you get too close or are exposed to too much.

Now, here's why you must learn to stop worrying and love nuclear power.

As observed above Fukushima is a crappy old plant with built to a design that has always had safety issues. It was hit by a massive earthquake, one of the biggest ever recorded, and a vast tsunami. The electricity supply to the plant failed, knocking out the cooling system. We now know that the backup power supply did not take over because the diesel generators were flooded. Eventually reactors began to explode and threaten melt down. The disaster exposed a saga of poor design and corner-cutting. Yet, as far as we know, no one has yet received a lethal dose of radiation.

The unholy alliance of the politicised green lobby, the perpetually fearful and those who stand to gain $$$billions from technologies like carbon capture, wind and solar power and cap-and-trade have wildly exaggerated the dangers of radioactive pollution. For a clearer picture the graphic HERE published by xkcd.com shows that the average total dose from the Three Mile Island disaster for someone living within 10 miles of the plant was one 625th of the maximum yearly amount permitted by international treaty for US, British and European nuclear power workers. In Britain we have had no similar accidents although various leaks of low and mid level radio - active material have occurred. The maximum permitted yearly exposure is half of the lowest one-year dose clearly linked to an increased cancer risk, which, in its turn, is one 80th of an invariably fatal exposure. We must stop being swayed by the fear and panic mongers who are only trying to drive an agenda forward an let ourselves be guided by common sense.

If other forms of energy production caused no damage and were risk free the acknowledged risks of nuclear power would make a strong case against its use. But energy is like medicine: if there are no side-effects, the chances are that it doesn't work .

Greens and climate science cult followers will be wailing and gnashing teeth now, they have invested a lot of emotional energy on campaigning for a major expansion of wind and solar generating. Their opponents have won the argument however. Onshore windfarms have huge environmental impact, also the new grid connections (pylons and power lines) are not desirable for health as well as aesthetic reasons (radiation again, children living close to overhead cables are known to be significantly more prone to some cancers). As the proportion of unreliable, inconsistent renewable electricity on the grid rises, more pumped storage will be needed to keep the lights on. That means reservoirs on mountains: they aren't popular, either with environmentalists, country lovers or landowners.

The impacts and costs of renewables rise with the proportion of power they supply, as the need for storage and backup increases. It may well be the case that up to a certain grid penetration renewables have smaller carbon impacts than nuclear, while beyond that point, nuclear has smaller impacts than renewables. Nobody seems in a hurry to carry out a study of at what point the balance tips. They'll probably try fobbing us off with "the science is settled" again.

Although I have ben branded by the more immature and hysteria prone as a 'climate denier' and a 'child killer' I have always called for renewable power (not wind and solar but wave, tide, marine current and run of river schemes, 100% reliable, to be used both to replace the electricity produced by fossil fuel because the earth is not making oil and coal anywhere near as quickly as we are using it but to expand the total supply, because as the economies of the population giants China and India develop demand will increase exponentially. That is a tall order for the renewables technology we have. Are we also going to demand that wind and solar replaces current nuclear capacity? The more work we expect renewables to do, the greater the impact on the landscape and the environment will be.

But expanding the grid to connect people and industry to distant sources of natural energy, the Sahara and the Arabian deserts, the Central Asian Steppes, the Great Plains of North America is also rejected by most of the greens. What they want, they tell me, is something quite different: we should power down and produce our energy locally. Some have even called for the abandonment of the grid. Such a vision of rustic self sufficient sounds idyllic, until you realise how medieval a society we would have to become.

At high latitudes like ours in Britain, most small-scale power production is a non starter. Generating solar power in the UK involves a spectacular waste of effort and resources. It's hopelessly inefficient and works best when we need least energy. Wind power in populated areas is largely worthless. This is partly because we have built our settlements in sheltered places; partly because turbulence caused by the buildings interferes with the airflow and chews up the mechanism. Micro-hydropower might work for an isolated farmhouse in the hills, but it's not much use in a large conurbation.

Also given that we could not return to what Gandhi's critics called the 'cow dung economy' how would we run our factories,textile mills, food processing plants, brick kilns, blast furnaces and railways; how would we provide the power for pharmaceutical manufacturing processes or keep hospitals and schools running? Rooftop solar panels? Wind turbines on top of our houses. One careless teenager could probable account for the entire ambient output of a whole street. The instant you consider the dependency of a modern economy on electric power is the moment at which you understand what utter rot the Warmageddonists, the fear and panic merchants and the carbon trading trade marketeers are talking and the scales fall from your eyes about "climate science". it's not very scientific.

Some greens go even further however: why waste renewable resources by turning them into electricity? Why not waterwheels and windmills to provide energy directly? To answer this question, look at Britain or the American colonies before the industrial revolution.

The damming and weiring of British rivers for watermills was small-scale, renewable, picturesque and devastating. By blocking the rivers and silting up the spawning beds, they helped bring to an end the gigantic runs of migratory fish that were once among our great natural resources and which fed much of Britain wiping out sturgeon, lampreys and shad, as well as most sea trout and salmon which swim inland to spawn in rivers.

Carbon free transport may not have caused any CO2 emissions but was closely associated with starvation. The land that was set aside for feeding draft animals was not available for feeding humans. It was the 17th-century equivalent of today's biofuels crisis - there is nothing new under the sun. The same applied to heating fuel. As EA Wrigley points out in his book Energy and the English Industrial Revolution, the 11m tonnes of coal mined in England in 1800 produced as much energy as 11m acres of woodland (one third of the land surface) would have generated. Even with a much lower population than today's, quality of life in the land-based economy, books, the kind of furniture we take for granted, fashionable clothes and travel were the preserve of the wealthy elite. Deep green living decentralised, based on the products of the land would be far more damaging to modern society than nuclear meltdown.

Nuclear energy has just been subjected to one of the harshest of possible tests, and the impact on people and the planet as a whole has been tiny. The crisis at Fukushima is a perfect demonstration of why you should stop worrying and love the atom..

Vertical Farming: The Looniest Idea Yet For Saving The PlanetClimate Science is a strange discipline.

The latest loonytoons idea for saving the planet involves turning skyscraper buildings into farms growing food for urban populations. Apart from increasing the cost of food by 1000% and increasing rather than reducing the carbon footprint of food production the idea is so insane noboy could ever take it seriously. Nobody that is except scientists, politicians, academics and the media.

The Futility Of Wind Farms.In some ways the Conservative / Liberal Democrat coalition has made quite a good start in government. One area they are set to fail badly however is energy. Driven by politically correct thinking the coalition are set to follow Labour down the road that goes through wind power and eventually leads nowhere. Wind turbines look fine on paper. If they generate at their optimum output for 365 days a year the contribution to energy needs looks like a viable business proposition. The problem is due to the limitations of the technology and the vagaries of the weather wind farms are doing well if they operate at a quarter of their potential output.

Baseball-Rollins, Konerko named Clemente Award winners
Former Chicago White Sox player Paul Konerko and Jimmy Rollins of the Philadelphia Phillies were named co-winners of the Roberto Clemente Award on Friday for their community work. "Paul Konerko and Jimmy Rollins are two of baseball's great ambassadors and have long distinguished themselves as leaders both on the field and in their communities," said Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig said. "Their commitment to making a difference in the lives of children is a wonderful reflection of the legacy Roberto Clemente has left on our game and in society." Both have been heavily involved in helping children. Konerko, who retired this season, founded the Bring Me Home Campaign in 2007 with former teammate Jim Thome and their respective wives, and have raised nearly $500,000 for school supplies and back-to-school clothing.

Top Scientist: This Version Of Ebola Looks Like ‘A Very Different Bug’
In another iteration of the old "The Science Is Settled" bollocks, President Obama and his senior advisers on medical science have been saying we know exactly how Ebola spreads. The case is however that there is much about this strain of the virus currently raging in West Africa that we simply do not know and the propaganda coming from the usual suspects who claim the science is settled looks very dubious.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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. Derbyshire Chief Constable Mick Creedon was serving as a detective sergeant in Leicestershire when allegations surfaced against Labour MP Greville Janner in 1989. Mr Creedon said he was ordered to limit his inquiries into the MP, now Lord Janner of Braunstone.

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

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.

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

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
