Well We Did Warn You.
by Sally Redfern
May 2007

So the Government ploughs relentlessly on in its campaign to force us all to live long and healthy lives.

A new health scare pops up every week it seems and with each scare comes a public information campaign costing millions and telling us what we have all known for years or do not give a brass fart about anyway.

Having brought about the imminent (or has it happened yet?- I hadn't noticed) ban on smoking in public places, largely due to the amount of money it costs the NHS to treat smoking related illness; and cracked down on underage drinkers and smokers( hadn't noticed those two either) on account of how it's costing the NHS a small fortune to deal with ever younger patients with smoking and alcohol related illnesses and conditions; and raised awareness of the effects of binge drinking on the health of the 18 to 25 year olds(erm no, not noticed that yet) as it's storing up health problems in the years to come which the NHS can ill afford to treat; and decreed that pregnant women should not drink any alcohol at all because of the cost of treating babies born underweight or with feotal alcohol syndrome (perhaps not reached South Yorkshire yet,judging by the number of preggie lasses having a lager in the pub last weekend, there again maybe they weren't preggie could have been beer guts); it is now the turn of the middle aged, middle class wine drinker.

A new ofensive by the government against binge drinking aims to target those who drink regularly at home.

"We want to target the older drinkers, those that are maybe drinking one or two bottles of wine at home each evening."( Wow, two bottles a night! makes me seem almost abstemious)

As part of the strategy ministers are highlighting the increased cost of treating drink related disease to the NHS. "There are growing numbers of people turning up in hospitals with drink related diseases and injuries. They do not realise the damage they are doing to their health and that they are risking developing liver disease."

Well hell, government, why not lead by example, let's see those subsidised bars in the House of Commons serving only non alcoholic drinks and let's see those official dinner parties at No. 10, Chequers, Dorneywood, etc. boycotting the demon drink and serving only locally sourced great British tapwater.

The NHS is going to be in pretty deep shit financially with the loss of all that income from taxes on alcohol and tobacco,and then they're going to have to cope with the conditions and illnesses connected to old age when we all start living to 100. Maybe Roger and the boys knew something back in the sixties, about the shape of things to come. If they're going to outlaw everything that's fun, what's the point?

CDC Admits as Many as 30 Million Americans Could be at Risk for Cancer Due to Polio Vaccine
Vaccine, that great profit driver for the pharmaceutical corporations, are under the spotlight again. This time it is a link between polio vaccine and cancer which makers and medical science has denied for fifty years that has finally been admitted by the US Centre for Disease control. How ironic they have owned up just weelks after the Obama administration granted Pharma corporations immunity from legal actions. Health Authorities Now Admit Severe Side Effects Of VaccinesA few years ago anybody who questioned vaccines, whether the notorious MMR jab, swine flu vaccine, the HPV jab or the government's plans to make vaccination compulsory by law was subjected to a witch hunt. Recently U.S. courts and courts in Europe have awareded multi million dollar / pound settlements to those damaged by the MMR vaccine. Now we learn that several governments have admitted vaccines can have very serious side effects.
Scientists And Politicians Attack The Food We Love, But Is It Science Or Just Control FreakeryA sustained campaign of misinformation by politicians, scientists, bureaucrats and the media have tried to brand fat and salt as the twin demons of the modern diet. Both however are essential to our wellbeing. So what are the bureaucrats, government and science lobby up to. What is the politics of food fascism. Are they just behaving as control freaks must or are they softening us up for extra taxes and government regulation of our dinner plates and the food we eat.
Acohol Abuse Will Kill 250,000 A Year Unless Governmnt Acts say Control Freak DoctorsThe Health fascists have been out in force this week. With reports on the dangers of alcohol, meat, salt and obesity published our resistance is being tested. The Daily Stirrer is on your side whether you like a drink, a bit of meat, a sprinking of salt on your food or you are a shade overweight. We are always happy to expose the dodgy scence and rigged evidence behind theses control freak fear and panic exercises.
Court Victory For Anti - MMR Campaigners.It is the medical scandal that refuses to go away. Since its introduction controversy has surrounded the MMR vaccine because in a small number - and we must stress, a small number - of cases children develop serious and permanent side effects after reveiving the vaccine. Now at last, after following a tactic used successfully in the USA and keeping the word autism out of their case, lawyers working for the family of Robert Fletcher have won the first award of compensation for 'brain damage' reslting from the MMR vaccine.
Labour's Loony Spending Scheme Cripples NHSThe nation was given a laugh when David Laws, treaury minister for the incoming conservative / lib dem coalition government revealed his Labour predecessor had left a note saying There is no money. it does not seem so funny now as the true extent of Labours financial profligacy is being discovered. The private finance contracts some NHS Health Trusts were tied into are crippling local hospital trusts financially.

Did Reuters Falsify The Testimony Of A MH-17 Crash Witness
As the USA increasingly looks to be losing its bid to provoke Russia into firing the shot (or dropping the bomb) that starts World War Three, the ever loyal mainstream media continues to flog dodgy narratives in the hope of whipping up anti Russian sentiment, should Obama eventually need to attack the Russians or their allies.

The Sillyosity Of The Loony Left
It's great to watch the increasing silliness of the left, particularly those Maoist bigots the BBC passes off as impartial and objective news commentators.

Climate Change and Leftist Psycological Malware.
It may seem far fetched but it is possible to link the techniques of the climate change / anti capitalist lobby to the brainwashing prorammes used by the Nazis in Germany, Stalin's Soviet regime in Russia and Chaitrman Mao's brutal government in Communist China. Thus it becomes quite similar to malware that infects computer systems. The left do not care about saving the planet, all they are interested in is advancing their totalitarian, globalist agenda.

U.S. versus Russia War: Top Russian Politics Scolar Stephen Cohen Tells The Truth
We have been blogging for four years about the US drive for war, provocation of Russia in Syria, Iraq, Ukraine and elsewhere made it obvious. But I'm just a news junkie with a strong sense of curiosity and have wondered why the US seems set on this course. Good to see experts like Stephen Cohen, a prominent expert on, Russia are coming onside.

Google Meets White House Officials Every Week, Why?
We have been very suspicious for ten years of the way Google with such apparent ease achieved a dominant position in web search. How did it happen, did Google do something evil, did they invoke the powers of darkness in their meteoric rise. Or were there even darker forces at work, powering Google to a position in which their internet technologies could dominate global information flows? Here's something cynics should read.

The US House of Representatives Openly Calls for Regime Change in Moscow
Aside from Washington's usual lust for war, and the enthusiasm of American politicians to act as cheerleaders for death and destruction (so as to secure their billions in military industrial complex campaign donations, (graft, bungs, slush money, payola), a key part of a new bill before the House of Representatives which calls for lethal aid to Ukraine, has nothing to do with Ukraine at all.

TThe Idea Of An Infinite Universe Is Fashionable Again
The now little discussed (due to the witch hunt tactics employed by the scientific consensus gangsters) idea of an infinite, eternal, self renewing universe makes a lot more sense than a point at which everything suddenly materialises out of nothing.

Free Speech Is Being Murdered By The Media And Left Wing Authoritarianism
Without free speech there is no democracy. Without democracy there is no freedom. But all over the developed world free speech is under attack from politically correct politics. It is time to start resisting, do not believe the propaganda published by mainstream media, question everything and make up your own mind. as The Buddha said, "Believe nothing you read or are told unless it agrees with your own experience and common sense."

To Infinity And Beyond - Big Bang Theory Trashed?
One 'scientific fact' Little Nicky has challenged in the past is Big Bang Theory. I have lost count of the times that having offered proof that Big Bang is not a fact, the universe is in reality infinite I have become involved in thousand - comment threads in which the arguments of the Big Bang sceptics were contradicted by science tits screeching, "It is a fact because we say it is."

Add the IMF to the (now long) list of those who apparently share the UK’s view that joining the China-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank is an “unrivaled opportunity,” as Christine Largarde says her institution not only sees a “massive” opportunity for cooperation with the AIIB but is also “delighted” to explore the possibilities.

Another Reason To Get Out Of EU. UKIP MEP Hits Out At Fishing Policy That Penalises British Fishing Crews
As the General Election campaign starts to heat up, we try to shift focus away from the squabbling between Conservative and Labour about who can make the most promises they have no intention of keeping and to the real issues concerning jobs, social breakdown , mass immigration, and an often overlooked area in which our EU membership has perhaps done more damage than any other, the fishing industry.

German Ubermacht Gives Greek Upstats The Finger In European Union Confrontation. The confrontation between Germany, which some say sees itself as the increasingly dominant nation in the EU as 'ever closer integration' progresses, and Greece, the Euro zone economic basket case but a proud and independent nation all the same, had to come. Germany was more austerity from Greece to protect the value of the Greek debt it hold. Greece want money from Germany to settle old grievances.

France Moves to Make ‘Conspiracy Theories’ Illegal by Government Decree
Political elites and super-bureaucrats must be very worried. New start up political parties, dismissed as populist byt in reality listening to the concerns of voters are making inroads into the political status quo.
