The killing of Jeremy Corbyn
Peter Oborne and David Hearst

The former Labour leader was the victim of a carefully planned and brutally executed political assassination
Former Labour Leader Jeremy #Corbyn (Reuters)
Throughout his parliamentary career, the mild mannered, infuriatingly calm Jeremy Corbyn has never failed to excite strong emotions.
For his enemies, he will go down as one of Labour’s worst leaders.

A polling firm linked to #Brexiteer Nigel #Farage faces scrutiny over a short-lived company that its owner used to do political work for Farage’s party and the 12 million-pound ($15.5 million) campaign he fronted to leave the European Union, according to records and interviews.
As part of a broader probe, investigators for the U.K. Information Commissioner’s Office are seeking details behind more than £186,000s in payments made by #Farage’s U.K. #Independence Party (#UKIP) to an entity established by the head of the polling firm Survation.

HANDS OFF MY #NHS: WHO IS DIDO #HARDING AND WHAT IS 1828?

LAST WEEK, MATT #HANCOCK ANNOUNCED THAT PUBLIC HEALTH ENGLAND WOULD BE ABOLISHED, CITING ITS FAILURE TO HANDLE THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC AS THE REASON FOR ITS REPLACEMENT.
In its place, the new National Institute for Health Protection will take over the work that has already been set motion to tackle #COVID-19. Set to be modelled on Germany’s Robert #Koch Institute, the country’s own organisation dealing with pandemic response,
it is now at the forefront of the United Kingdom’s handling of what many predict to be a brutal second wave. However, unlike the presidents of the Robert Koch Institute, who are microbiologists and specialists in infectious epidemiology respectively,

What is #political #correctness?
Strap in...
Political correctness... To shut down discussion and dissent, and to stifle debate, without having to actually discuss the points made, or the merits thereof.
To attempt to point out the odious nature of political correctness is to restate the crucial importance of plain speaking, freedom of choice and freedom of speech: These are the community's safeguards against the imposition of tyranny. Indeed, their absence is tyranny.
The declared rationale of this tyranny is to prevent people being offended, by compelling everyone to avoid using words or behavior that may upset: Homosexuals, women, non-whites, the crippled, the stupid, the fat or the ugly - by way of a few examples.

Britain’s #Political #Media Corruption: A Coalition of the Guilty – Byline Times bylinetimes.com/2021/04/26/bri…
From #Leveson to #Brexit, phone-hacking to #CambridgeAnalytica, Peter Jukes sees a consistent theme – parties on the run from the rule of law. And how Dominic #Cummings could end the cycle of corruption

During the current furore over leaks from Number 10,
and the apparent internecine warfare between Boris #Johnson and his former senior advisor Dominic #Cummings, one piece of information emerged which, if true, does a lot to explain the current febrile state of British politics.
According to Caroline Wheeler and Gabriel Pogrund

UKIP leaders have been fighting the demand for that information, and other details related to political operations, for almost a year, including in court.
The fact that the inquiry is looking at what role Survation may have played hasn’t been previously reported.

Covid-19: politicisation, “corruption,” and suppression of science
BMJ
doi.org/10.1136/bmj.m4…

When good science is suppressed by the medical-political complex, people die
#Politicians and #governments are suppressing #science.
They do so in the public interest, they say, to accelerate availability of diagnostics and treatments. They do so to support #innovation, to bring #products to market at unprecedented speed.
Both of these reasons are partly plausible; the greatest deceptions are founded in a grain of truth. But the underlying behaviour is troubling.
#Science is being suppressed for #political and #financial gain. #Covid-19 has unleashed state corruption on a grand scale,

Incarcerated by Myths: The Meghan and Harry Affair Has Exposed the Fact-Free Press – Byline Times bylinetimes.com/2021/03/10/inc…
The British media is often revered as a rich asset to the nation. The free and fair press, it is said, scrutinises the powerful and provides a rich forum for debate. Few nations around the world can boast of such a strong and independent media, it is claimed.
However, like most fables of British supremacy, this high-minded language crumbles on close contact – like a sculpture formed of ash.

In alignment with the decline of Britain as a global power, the domestic media too has experienced a dishonourable demise.

#Panorama - Has the Government Failed the #NHS?,
#BBC One, 27 April 2020

Summary of complaint
We have received complaints from some viewers who felt that the programme was biased against the #govt.
Our response
The programme raised legitimate questions about the govt’s role in ensuring that the #UK is providing #NHS workers with adequate personal protective equipment (#PPE), which we would consider to be of great public interest at this particular time.
The #Panorama investigation also included four significant revelations:
* That the billion plus figure of items of #PPE that the govt has supplied included cleaning products and individually counted gloves.
* That gowns, visors, swabs

#BobMarley
How long shall they kill our #Prophets while we stand aside and look?
#BobMarley was #murdered by the CIA w/ #inducedcancer b/c of his #political activity, exposing the #Cabal and starting a #revolution

See the documentary: #WhoKilledBobMarley?
Ex-CIA agent #BillOxley used faked press credentials to gain access to #BobMarley at his #BlueMountain retreat
“I gave him a pair of Converse All Stars size 10
When he tried on the right shoe, he screamed out ‘OUUUCH’
The nail in the shoe was tainted w/ cancer viruses & bacteria”
#BobMarley’s son #Ziggy claims it’s plausible his father was murdered b/c of his political activity

“I was 12 years old when my daddy passed away
People say it was cancer
Somebody stepped on his toe and that caused an injury, then he dies of cancer? In my mind it doesn’t add up”

According to Michael Gross' 1995 book Model:
"Jean-Luc Brunel is considered a danger," says Jérôme Bonnouvrier. "Jean-Luc likes drugs and silent rape. It excites him." "I really despise Jean-Luc," says John Casablancas. "They would invite girls and put drugs in their drinks."

The Unresolved Investigation
The Information Commissioner, Elizabeth Denham was questioned last week by the Commons’ Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) Committee –
specifically, its Sub-Committee on Disinformation – and, thanks to dogged, well-briefed questions by particular MPs, we learned a lot.

Everyone who says "#BoThSiDeS" can shove that phrase right up their backside, because of the @GOP using the turocharged capitalist equivalent to #warlordism in #congress and #senate, holding the entire nation as hostages for their reactionary bullshit!

And this "political #instability" and "#political uncertainty" is making the #USA a worse place to invest, conduct business in or with and to have to deal with in general.
Because Ghouls like #McCornell are just being #assholes for the sake of doing so and not facing #accountability for it!

At what point do we say those who mention #Russian disinformation campaign are automatically discredited? These are the same people that have lied for the last 4yrs about #RussianCollusion hoax, tore this country apart & continue to push this nonsense. 1/8
The same people who tell you to ignore the #BidenEmails because they haven’t been “verified.” Here you have actual hardcopy docs & they can't be trusted, yet these same people point to Russia w/out any evidence. they jump on stories w/fakesources & no hard documents. 2/8

the rapture

when ice cream became plaster
every lawyer was a bishop
and vice versa
what we took for wisdom was
a fool's tale dressed in prophet's skin

in hidden kitchens acolytes brewed vats
of jealousy spiced with powder
ground from tarnished silver
in cathedrals varnished with dollar bills
locust tongues preached toxic gospel
and choirs sang the praises of butchers
wrapped in the robes of christ

the communion wine was green
but thirsty for salvation
we all drank deep from the chalice
as often as it was passed
when we were good and drunk
we scrambled up what we thought
was the ladder to paradise
as the organist mangled nearer my god to thee

we pushed and shoved our way up
in the grip of competition some fell off
screaming as they hurtled down
to what end we neither knew nor cared

retrodegradation

we were dreaming of sugarplums and other impossibles
when the wind picked up everything worth taking
and blew it all to hell and gone
left to weather without refreshment
the foundation’s varnish cracked
exposing rotted wood
martyrs
none of them carpenters
stepped forward to repair it

accompanied by the bloodless analysis
of parrots regurgitating acceptable shibboleths
they were cut down in the streets
in the dust of devastation our eyes splintered
unable to focus we feel our way through lawn and marble
wailing and conjecture
propaganda and piles of devalued coinage
