The Roger Stone – Wikileaks – Russia Hoax

Source:: Craig Murray The Roger Stone – Wikileaks – Russia Hoax As ever, the Guardian wins the prize for the most tendentious reporting of Roger Stone’s conviction. This is not quite on the scale of its massive front page lie that Paul Manafort visited Julian Assange in the Ecuadorean Embassy. But it is a lie with precisely the same intent, to deceive the public into believing there were links between Wikileaks and the Trump campaign. There were no such links. The headline “Roger Stone: Trump Adviser Found Guilty On All Charges… Read the full article:: Craig Murray The […]

Jeremy Corbyn, Labour and Scottish Independence

Source:: Gerry Hassan Jeremy Corbyn, Labour and Scottish Independence Jeremy Corbyn, Labour and Scottish Independence Gerry Hassan Sunday National, November 17th 2019 This week Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s trip to Scotland made the headlines – and not for positive reasons. Corbyn’s position in less than 24 hours changed more than once on independence. First, he shifted from his previous position of not having an independence referendum in the ‘early years’ of a Labour Government, indicating that a vote would not take place in ‘the first term’ of an administration.… Read the full article:: Gerry Hassan Jeremy Corbyn, Labour […]

“The Palace… Threatened Us a Million Different Ways”.

Source:: Craig Murray “The Palace… Threatened Us a Million Different Ways”. This leaked off-air recording of ABC News anchor Amy Robach is much more revealing than anything the BBC is going to air about Andrew Saxe Coburg Gotha. Buckingham Palace has been “threatening” journalists to bury the story for years – which is all very reminiscent of Jimmy Savile, who was of course, ahem, popular at the Palace. Robach also states they were scared of losing interview access to folically challenged William Saxe Coburg Gotha and his underweight wife.… Read the full article:: Craig Murray “The Palace… Threatened […]

The Fragile Boris Johnson

Source:: Craig Murray The Fragile Boris Johnson I find election campaigns in which the Prime Minister addresses scrubbed, smug Tory audiences, filmed by the BBC in close shot to conceal the sparsity of their numbers, deeply disturbing. I find the speeches in factories to employees even more chilling. The sullen compliance of employees, too cowed to show discontent before their bosses, should disturb any right thinking person. This may bore millennials, but back in the 1970s it was inconceivable that a politician of any stripe could address… Read the full article:: Craig Murray The Fragile Boris Johnson

Conventional wisdom is no guide to the future in an age of turmoil and surprise

Ted Heath’s ‘Who governs Britain?’ election of February 1974 became about the state of the country, and Winston Churchill’s belief after the war in Europe ended in 1945 that he would be elected by a grateful electorate turned out to… […]

Le Mesurier Gets Cross

Source:: Craig Murray Le Mesurier Gets Cross Perhaps the only fact on James Le Mesurier about which I would agree with the MSM war cheerleaders is that he was a very busy man. It is remarkable therefore that he found the time and inclination to follow “Philip Cross” on twitter. Given that “Philip Cross” has virtually never posted an original tweet, and his timeline consists almost entirely of retweets of Nick Cohen, David Aaronovitch and openly pro-Israel propaganda accounts, why would Le Mesurier bother to follow him?… Read the full article:: Craig Murray Le Mesurier Gets Cross

The Sad Death of James Le Mesurier

Source:: Craig Murray The Sad Death of James Le Mesurier We should never forget that all human deaths are tragedies. No human is perfect and none is completely evil. Even the most wretched, snivelling excuse of a human being you can possibly imagine – say Ian Austin – has known a mother’s love. Le Mesurier leaves a wife and children who will be mourning. We should not forget that. Unfortunately he worked in a profession where you can very quickly move from an asset to a liability.

The UK’s Macabre Final Election

Source:: Craig Murray The UK’s Macabre Final Election This is the final general election of the United Kingdom. The SNP has put Independence at the heart of its campaign, eschewing the dreadful error of the “don’t mention Independence” campaign of 2017 that led half a million potential supporters to sit on their hands on voting day. The SNP is going to win a thumping victory and eliminate the Tories from Scotland. Johnson’s hardline unionist pose, denying the sovereign right to choose of the Scottish people, would not be… Read the full article:: Craig Murray The UK’s Macabre Final […]

Five of the seven charges against Stone relate directly to Randy, who is the witness that Stone is accused of… Read the full article:: Craig Murray World […]

Letter from America: Civil society matters more than who wins elections in the UK, US and elsewhere

This much is obvious from the USA – not exactly a benign, peaceful, harmonious world itself. But in its media coverage, and the people I have spoken to in the past week, there is a universal understanding that things are not going well in the USA or […]

He was then appointed by the Tories as Prime Ministerial Trade Envoy to Israel. As of yesterday, he is neither a MP nor a candidate for election.

We will hear the encomium “the voters are our real employers” many times over the course of this election. It suggests we are wise to the ways of our elected representatives and that we seem to possess a sixth sense […]
