German authorities knew threat to MH17 and did nothing

In spite of the claim from the rent-boy president Barack Hussein Obama that he had ‘conclusive proof’ the Malasian Airlines Boeing 777, flight MH17 was shot down over Ukraine by Russian separatists, no such proof has so far been forthcoming. All we have from Obama can be suymmed up as “You whitey gotta believe me because I’se black.”

Meanwhile the trickle of information that leaks out from those involved in the investigation of the outrage becomes more and more disturbing.

Take this from 4 Bit News for example:

You would expect that “the authorities”, you know those government organisations who are paid for by the people, would carry out a responsibility to their citizens if they thought there was an impending and substantial threat to life wouldn’t you. Well, you would in a modern democratic, western country at least – yes? Not so!

The German authorities were aware of the risks of flying over war-torn eastern Ukraine before Malaysian flight MH17 was shot down last July, but failed to inform local air carriers of the danger. A diplomatic cable by Germany’s Foreign Ministry a few days before the tragedy warned that the situation in eastern Ukraine was “worrying,” but “the authorities” decided it was a good tactic to warn no-one, not even their own national carriers.

The Mediterranean Boat People Crisis Is Starting To Dominate Everything.

No comment necessary (Image source)

It’s getting crazy. We have the hand – wringing, breast beating, clothes rending, wailing gnashing teeth, do gooders of the guilt addicted left saying we must do more to help immigrants get across the Mediterranean to Europe.

We have clueless politicians dithering, and we have UKIP talking sense, Cameron talking bollocks, Miliband dancing to The Mad Wee Hag’s tune already and Katie Hopkins grabbing more attention than she deserves thanks to mainstream media misreporting her comments and the idiotic left going into one of their now several times daily Two Minutes Hate sessions.

Today however, in a Daily Telegraph thread, i read a very pertinent comment that deserves wider circulation. I have no way of confirming that the author is genuine, or that the comment is factually accurate. It seems however to be borbe out by what I have seen on television and read in mainstream and alternative media relating to the current crisis.

Comment from:
Sguest, 22 April, 2015 in The Daily Telegraph.

I am a part owner of a business in Egypt that builds boats for use on the Red Sea for tourism.

In 2005 we employed a carpenter who said that he had been working in Libya building the flimsiest of wooden boats for use by people smugglers. He said that such boats were sailed to Italy where the boats and the people were abandoned. The smugglers escaped because they bribed the Italian coast guards to let them go free. (Our new employee didn’t last long because, hardly surprisingly, the standard of his work left much to be desired).

This is something that has been going on long before Qaddafi was deposed but nowadays the scale is much larger because there is so much money to be made. I have heard that the migrants have to scrape together as much as £2,000 each, at least some of which seems to come from relatives already in Europe.

I actually met a Tunisian who paid a similar amount and turned up with many others to board a boat. The boat never turned up and they all lost their money.

The smugglers are not just the ones who put these people onto boats in Libya but also the ones who enable the migrants to leave their own countries and travel overland to the Libyan coast. Many of them have to cross other countries to get to Libya. For examples, Eritreans have to cross Sudan.

The smugglers are the worst of criminals – murderers and thieves, at least, and every effort should be made to capture and punish them ruthlessly.

*******************

Those comments just about sum it up, the wailing and gnashing of teeth about how we should let the migrants into Europe are only encouraging more to put their lives into the hands of the ruthless crimilals who deal in human contraband. The hand wringing lefties are not helping poor Africans and refugees, they are killing them. Well done guys, another own goal by the wailing, gnashing teeth side.

So maybe Katy Hopkins was onto something, she did not actually say send gunboats to blow the litle craft overloaded with migrants out of the water, so the screeching lefties have no more idea than you or I what was in her mind (I suspect £ signs were somehow involved).

To talk of “sending a gunboat” is however a reference to british Foreign Policy of the Pax Brittanica era prior to World War One, called by historians Gunboat Diplomancy. Whenever the natives got restless Britain would send a few gunboats to blockade their trading ports.

Similarly we could now do the same with Libya, pending restoration of stable government there, but aresting crews and impounding boats whose business could not be proved legitimate and in the case of overloaded migrant boats, taking the passengers to safety. Simples, but as always with the left, they are too quick to hate, too slow to think.

So Where’s The Outrage, Where’s The Screeching?

A Liberal Democrat activist who sits on two national party committees has been suspended from her regional party after a string of sexist comments on social media. The activist in question, Sarah Noble, made multiple tweets of a disturbingly hateful nature, including “kill all men”, “fuck men”, and “die cis[gendered] scum”.

The comments were brought to light by by HEqual, a gender egalitarian campaigning group. After being made aware of them, former Lib Dem Equalities Minister Jo Swinson was quick to condemn Noble’s comments. Writing on Facebook, Swinson said the comments were “completely unacceptable” and “in no way represent the views of Liberal Democrats”. The former Minister also said that Noble has been asked to delete her tweets and apologise. No apology has yet been forthcoming.

‘Kill All Men’: Lib Dem Activist in Hate Speech Scandal

A man who told a 12-year-old boy who was selling poppies to raise money for The Royal British Legion that he would have him “shot by the Taliban” has walked free from jail.

Adelso Saws, who already has a conviction for armed robbery, was let off with a suspended sentence after being found guilty of threatening the Army cadet, The Express reports.

The slap-on-the-wrist comes after Romanian Marius Dura was also handed a suspended sentence after admitting he told two army cadets he was going to “chop their heads off” back in February.

Saws, 34, from Kilburn in Derbyshire told the boy he was not going to buy a poppy from him, which raises money for people who have served in the British Armed Forces, because “all you do is kill Muslims”.

The criminal, who served a ten year sentence for armed robbery and another five years for affray, then ran to his car and sped off when an older cadet challenged him.

Threats, Violence and Hate have always been the left’s favourite debating tools

Threats of violence and even death are being used to stop UKIP from campaigning for the general election as the hard left try to stamp the party out.

Groups including ‘Stand Up To UKIP’ have warned UKIP candidates not to turn up to hustings while activists claim to have been spat at in the street, the Express reports.

And across the country, campaign offices have been vandalised, with socialists boasting on twitter they would even set fire to a shop with UKIP supporters still inside it.

If She Opens The Door, Shoot Her!” Left Wing Threats Against UKIP Candidates Spreads To Norfolk

An anonymous letter was set to a candidate in West Lancashire threatening him if he turned up to a hustings event – a key mechanism in Britain’s democratic process.

Jack Sen was told the event last Tuesday “would go tragically for all involved” if he turned up, and was signed from ‘Standing Up To UKIP’

Mr Sen said: “I would have loved to go to the hustings, but I’ve been warned that because it was a co-ordinated letter, it’s high risk for me and my family.

West Lance Record, Husting Report

In Great Yarmouth, police were called after residents of Northgate Street in the town were visited by a group of four men insisting they remove their UKIP poster on their windows.

When the home owners refused to do so, they were threatened and eventually took the posters down – before the men drove off.

The seat was a key target for UKIP before its young candidate, Matt Smith, had to resign over allegations he has since been cleared of. His replacement, Alan Gray, is still doing well in the polls but is unlikely to win although the party should pick up local council seats.

However, this did not stop thugs driving past the house where he and his wife, who are both councillors on Great Yarmouth Borough Council, live, shouting “If she opens the door, shoot her!”. The police are said to be investigating the incident having spoken to Mrs Gray.

The Labour party in the constituency have also been accused of inventing fake UKIP policies as they try to win the coastal seat from Conservative Minister Brandon Lewis.

Is that enough to convince you that while those silly, bigoted airheads whose opinions follow the latest Facebook meme might screech about UKIP being extremists, it is really the various groups of neo Nazi bigots on the ‘left’ of the political spectrum that rely on smears, lies, violence, thuggery and brownshirt tactics because they have no cogent arguments to offer.

No More Bets On Grexit Says Boggart Blog Bookie

With the major bookmakers, inclusing Willam Hill, Ladbrokes, Fred Done and Paddy Power abbouncing they have closed the book on all bets concerning the Greek exit (Grexit) from the Eurozone, the Boggart Blog bookie has no option but to follow suit.

In the event of a rush of money (on when rather than if) he would not be able to hedge it with the bigger players.

The move from bookies was prompted by information leaked from the IMF:

Greek officials have made an informal approach to the International Monetary Fund to delay repayments of loans to the international lender, highlighting the parlous state of Greek finances, but were told that no rescheduling was possible.

According to officials briefed on the talks by both sides, Athens was persuaded not to make a specific request for a delay to the Fund, which is owed almost €1bn in two separate payments due in May.

Although Athens was rebuffed, the discussions, which occurred in private earlier this month, are a sign that the Greek government is finding it increasingly difficult to scrape together enough money to continue to pay wages and pensions while meeting its debt payments to external lenders.

Yields on Greek bonds soared on Thursday following the news, with yields on three-year paper rising 134 basis points to 25.10 per cent, the highest since the country’s restructuring. Its 10-year yields climbed 45 basis points to 12.18 per cent…

IMF officials have been consistent in demanding that a rescheduling of repayments can only come as part of a completely renegotiated bailout programme. Should it miss a payment, Greece would become the first developed economy to go into arrears at the Fund, something only counties like Zaire and Zimbabwe have done in the past (and with disastrous consequences.)

One inside source said the proposal was to “reshuffle the repayment schedule for the IMF loan over the coming months,” allowing Greek government leader Alexis Tsipras the money to pay pensions and public sector salaries while negotiating with European creditors over payment of the next tranche of bailout loans.

As a reminder, Thursday morning, reports indicated that Athens has appealed to the IMF for a reshuffling of its debt repayment schedule so that the government can pay pensions and public sector wages while attempting to negotiate a deal with creditors — Tsipras was rebuffed.

Graham Sharpe, A spokesman for William Hill had this to say:

“Greece had been heavily backed down ro 1/5 to be the first to quit the Eurozone, and we’d also been shortening the odds for Greece to leave during 2015. They’d come down from 5/1 to 3/1.It is now looking increasingly likely that they could begin the process of departing very shortly’

‘No one is interested in backing Greece to stay in the Eurozone until the end of the year, so we decided to pull the plug on the markets until either the decision to leave is taken, or the crisis point passes and a plan is put in place enabling the country to remain in’ added Sharpe.]

Crippling PFI deals leave Britain £222bn in debt

http://www.independent.co.uk/money/loans-credit/crippling-pfi-deals-leave-britain-222bn-in-debt-10170214.html

Every man, woman and child in Britain is more than £3,400 in debt – without knowing it and without borrowing a single penny – thanks to the proliferation of controversial deals used to pay for infrastructure such as schools and hospitals.

The UK owes more than £222bn to banks and businesses as a result of Private Finance Initiatives (PFIs) – “buy now, pay later” agreements between the government and private companies on major projects. The startling figure – described by experts as a “financial disaster” – has been calculated as part of an Independent on Sunday analysis of Treasury data on more than 720 PFIs. The analysis has been verified by the National Audit Office (NAO).

The headline debt is based on “unitary charges” which start this month and will continue for 35 years. They include fees for services rendered, such as maintenance and cleaning, as well as the repayment of loans underwritten by banks and investment companies.

Basically, a PFI is like a mortgage that the government takes out on behalf of the public. The average annual cost of meeting the terms of the UK’s PFI contracts will be more than £10bn over the next decade.

And the cost of servicing PFIs is growing. Last year, it rose by £5bn. It could rise further, with inflation. The upward creep is the price taxpayers’ pay for a financing system which allows private firms to profit from investing in infrastructure.

An NAO briefing, released last month, says: “In the short term using private finance will reduce reported public spending and government debt figures.” But, longer term, “additional public spending will be required to repay the debt and interest of the original investment”.

A case in point is Britain’s biggest health trust, Barts Health NHS Trust in London, which was placed in special measures last month. It is £93m in debt – struggling under the weight of a 43-year PFI contract under which it will pay back more than £7bn on contracts valued at a fraction of that sum (£1.1bn).
