I do find it
slightly curious to say the least NIC to
be lectured about the union between
Great Britain and Northern Ireland
by a man who all his life political life
has campaigned to break up that Union
and actually supported for four decades
the IRA in their campaign bar violently
violently to destroy I must say I find
it a curiosity

Mr. Corbyn throughout his career has consistently opposed
longer sentences and when you look at
mi5 the body that keeps us safe
particularly from terror attack, he’s proposing to put in a Home
Secretary in the form of Diane Albert
who has called for mi5 to be disbanded?
Nick Robinson was keen to hear a response from Mr Corbyn on the point.
is that your Home Secretary Diana
abbot wants to he claims you tell us wanted in
the past at least a disband mi5
This very strange part of the debate has however as far as I have seen escaped any scrutiny. And it is this claim that Dianne Abbot wishes to disband MI5 I would like to Look at. It is also notable that Andrew Neil in throwing down the Gauntlett to Johnson is against the Back Drop of MI5. It seems that this little Smear is an attack placed in surrogate publications at election Time, the coincidence with the 2015, 2017 and now 2019 election campaigns tends to suggest they emanate from Lynoton Crosbys little Balck book.
Diane Abbott supported the abolition of Britain’s security services in April 1989
The shadow home secretary, who is due to give a speech at the annual Police Federation conference in Birmingham tomorrow, was revealed to have backed a Commons motion demanding the scrapping of MI5 and the Metropolitan Police’s Special Branch.
She joined other Labour Left-winger including Dennis Skinner and Dave Nellist in back the controversial parliamentary Early Day Motion in April 1989.
John McDonnell insists he did not read leaflet he signed calling for MI5 to be disbanded
McDonnell’s name had been included as a signatory on a list of “demands” compiled by a group called the Socialist Campaign for a Labour Victory ahead of the last General Election
- an Inquiry into national security issues relating to China;
- an Inquiry into Right-Wing Terrorism;
- an examination of the current threat from Northern Ireland-Related Terrorism; and
- a case study on GCHQ procurement.
The 3 Tory Candidates still running in their seats in spite of evidence of their Anti-Semetic Tropery, shows how the awful campaign of smears against Corbyn personally truly is. It is a smear that simply will not bounce even though boris seems less than able or willing to carry out his Out on first Bounce promise within his own party when push comes to shove.
Finally, we then come to EPhor in Chief Mark Sedwill, The true King. Johnson wishes to be Rules-Based international Order World King, and Sedwill is the World King first among equal and seer of the seers and overseer of the rest of us.
Mark Sedwill’s three hats: the pros and cons of no longer having a full-time national security adviser
Re-combining the role of national security adviser with the post of cabinet secretary undoes a reform made in 2010. Dr Joe Devanny asks if the decision is the right one.
“Better that right counsels be known to enemies than that the evil secrets of tyrants should be concealed from the citizens. They who can treat secretly of the affairs of a nation have it absolutely under their authority; and as they plot against the enemy in time of war, so do they against the citizens in time of peace.”

The ephors were leaders of ancient Sparta and shared power with the two Spartan kings. The ephors were a council of five elected annually who swore “on behalf of the city” while the kings swore for themselves.
legend has it that after the bloody battle of Thermopylae, the victor Xerxes prepared to spread a purple cloak over the body of his vanquished enemy Leonidas, out of admiration for his valor. But as he was about to lower the cloak, a strange voice out of nowhere called out: “No. Take that cloak from me. I will accept no favor from the Persians.” And Xerxes knew that it was Leonidas, speaking to him from the other world. And he called out into space: “But thou art dead, Leonidas. Why hate the Persians even in death?” And, according to the legend, back came the stirring reply: “The passion for freedom dieth not.” JFK.
Who watches the watchers, who are the PC police and will Boris be hoisted upon his own bouncing pertard.
Under PC, whatever you do, whatever willing you show, status is contingent.
There is no safety even for members of the ruling elite in a system of Political Correctness; anyone at all is susceptible to denunciation for any reason or no reason at any time.
Since PC is a wave of moral ‘progress’ which leaves-behind all previous moral standards and behaviours – there can be no accumulation of moral capital.
This applies to the ultra-PC just as much as to the openly reactionary.
(In this respect PC is more like communist than fascist totalitarianism: under fascism membership-of and courageous loyalty to the in-group usually brings safety from denunciation; but under communism anybody was vulnerable to denunciation – friends and enemies of the government alternated with bewildering rapidity: nobody was safe.)
Indeed, the PC elite seem especially vulnerable to denunciation – since they are under continuous scrutiny; it is hard to keep-up with the pace of change, and the change is so arbitrary; it is very difficult to suppress common sense 24/7.
The highest member of the PC elite is only a single gaffe away from disaster.
(Note: A ‘gaffe’ is when an elite PC intellectual momentarily forgets to lie.)
In May 2015, at the West London Synagogue, there took place the memorial service for Lord Leon Brittan.
Brittan, who has Lithuanian Jewish origins, was at one time the government minister responsible for the spy service MI5
Malcolm Rifkind is related to Charles Rifkind, who has been a governor, and parent, at Arnold House School.

Syllogisms of Guilt? and other witchhunts.
In regard to things external, health, wealth, and the like, I am then all
that Nature intended me to be. But there is much previous toil to be undergone. You
will first sharpen your eyes on minute manuscripts, amass commentaries, and get
your bellyful of outlandish terms. Last but not least, it is forbidden to be wise without repeated doses of hellebore.
dealer All this is exalted and magnanimous to a degree. But what am I to
think when I find that you are also the creed of cent-per-cent,1
the creed of the usurer? Has he swallowed his hellebore? is he made perfect in virtue?
Assuredly. On none but the wise man does usury sit well. Consider.
His is the art of putting two and two together, and usury is the art of putting interest
together. The two are evidently connected, and one as much as the other is the prerogative of the true believer; who, not content, like common men, with simple interest, will also take interest upon interest. For interest, as you are probably aware, is of two kinds. There is simple interest, and there is its offspring, compound interest.Hear Syllogism on the subject. “If I take simple interest, I shall also take compound.
But I shall take simple interest: therefore I shall take compound.”
And the same applies to the fees you take from your youthful pupils? None but the true believer sells virtue for a fee?
Quite right. I take the fee in my pupil’s interest, not because I want it.
The world is made up of diffusion and accumulation. I accordingly practise my pupil
in the former, and myself in the latter.
But it ought to be the other way. The pupil ought to accumulate,
and you, “sole millionaire,” ought to diffuse.
Ha! you jest with me? Beware of the shaft of insoluble syllogism.
