Jeremy Corbyn, Tony Blair and Keir Starmer and when was Britain’s Golden Age?

Source:: Gerry Hassan Jeremy Corbyn, Tony Blair and Keir Starmer and when was Britain’s Golden Age? Jeremy Corbyn, Tony Blair and Keir Starmer and when was Britain’s Golden Age? Gerry Hassan Scottish Review, April 8th 2020 Every society has a golden age – often mythical, but with some relationship to events and reality. In Britain, this is often continually referenced as World War Two, ‘the Blitz spirit’ and Dunkirk – all much in evidence in recent weeks in the face of coronavirus. Other stories are available but get less coverage and mileage. One is that of… Read the […]

#SingalongaVanessa

Source:: Craig Murray #SingalongaVanessa I have been sent footage of judge Vanessa Baraitser appearing in a school musical. Even though this is a remarkable survival of the scrubbing of her existence from the internet, I saw no public interest in publishing it until yesterday, when she ruled that in the interests of “open justice” the identities of Julian Assange’s partner and small children should be made public. So in the interests of “open justice”, here is Vanessa singing. In these difficult times we must… Read the full article:: Craig Murray #SingalongaVanessa

Beyond Words

Source:: Craig Murray Beyond Words Yesterday Mark Sommers QC, the extremely erudite and bookish second counsel for Julian Assange in his extradition hearing, trembled with anger in court. Magistrate Vanessa Baraitser had just made a ruling that the names of Julian Assange’s partner and young children could be published, which she stated was in the interests of “open justice”. His partner had submitted a letter in support of his Covid 19 related bail application (which Baraitser had summarily dismissed) to state he had a family… Read the full article:: Craig Murray Beyond Words

Source:: North British Post Import Your WordPress Site to WordPress.com — Including Themes and Plugins It’s been possible to export your posts, images, and other content to an export file, and then transfer this content into another WordPress site since the early days of WordPress. Select WordPress from the list of options to import your site. This basic WordPress import moved content, but didn’t include other important stuff like themes, plugins, users, or settings.

The Declaration of Arbroath, and the Way Forward Now

Source:: Craig Murray The Declaration of Arbroath, and the Way Forward Now This is my first ever attempt at a podcast. The family think it is hilariously boring, like a TV lecture from the 1950’s. I try to persuade them that being hilariously inept is vital to my charm, but that makes them laugh even more. It is a day late due to technical incompetence on my part. There are a couple of weird cuts where the kittens knocked the camera over. Consensus here is that next time I should just film… Read the full article:: Craig Murray […]

Gerry Hassan Sunday National, April 5th 2020 Next Thursday one of the landmark anniversaries of popular music and culture occurs: the 50th anniversary of the public break-up of the Beatles when Paul McCartney broke the unexpected news. The dreams and hopes of a huge swathe of young people and generation who had grown up with the Beatles as the world around them dramatically changed would never be the… Read the full […]

Who Paid Dani Garavelli?

Source:: Craig Murray Who Paid Dani Garavelli? Tortoise was sponsored to produce the Dani Garavelli attempted assassination of Alex Salmond by Tulchan Communications, the same firm that employed Ruth Davidson on £50,000 a year for 24 days of corporate lobbying – until banned by the Scottish Parliament. Tulchan Communications is an openly Tory body. Its Chief Executive is Lord Feldman, former Chairman of the Tory Party. Its directors include Lisa Kerr, former SPAD to George Osborne. It is a part of the UK’s suave system of corruption,… Read the full article:: Craig Murray Who Paid Dani Garavelli?

Here’s Two I Did Earlier

Source:: Craig Murray Here’s Two I Did Earlier In the light of recent events, I thought I might revisit my appearances a few months ago on the Alex Salmond Show. In current circumstances people might have more time to watch.  It also helps explain why the state hates Alex Salmond. https://youtu.be/-3dx3x05gYg https://youtu.be/Wa1KQHmLPs8 The establishment have tried to “get” Alex SaImond in three courts. The first was Scotland’s highest civil court, the Court of Session. They failed. The second was Scotland’s highest criminal court, the… Read the full article:: Craig Murray Here’s Two I Did Earlier

“I Have a Plan So That We Can Remain Anonymous But Have Maximum Effect”

Source:: Craig Murray “I Have a Plan So That We Can Remain Anonymous But Have Maximum Effect” These were the words, shown in court, in a text of Ms H to a co-conspirator as they launched their infamous effort to destroy Alex Salmond. The plan was to make false sexual allegations against Salmond, which would ensure the conspirators lifelong anonymity as “victims” and thus protect them against any backlash should the plan fail. They were all very powerful women, so insuring themselves was paramount. The “plan” turns out to have the added advantage that the collapse of… Read […]

This weekend it was revealed that Gordon Jackson QC, Alex Salmond’s defence counsel, was filmed on the Edinburgh-Glasgow train talking in an indiscreet and unprofessional manner when his client’s trial was ongoing. Jackson did not paint his client in an edifying light, stating that he was ‘a sex pest’ who was ‘a nasty person to work for’, ‘a nightmare’ and ‘bully’ as… Read the full article:: Gerry […]

How It Starts

Source:: Craig Murray How It Starts The brevity of this post is out of proportion to the enormous importance of the subject. But I want to let you know I am thinking and working on it. It is a recognised pattern for dictatorship to commence with emergency measures designed to combat a threat. Those emergency measures then become normalised and people exercising arbitrary power find it addictive. A new threat is then found to justify the continuation It is by no means clear to me that… Read the full article:: Craig Murray How It Starts

Daily Record Investigates My Home and Finances

Source:: Craig Murray Daily Record Investigates My Home and Finances The day after I publish my article accusing the corporate media of being an active part of the conspiracy against Alex Salmond, and of giving disgracefully selective, slanted and biased coverage of the evidence of his trial, the Daily Record has decided to investigate my home and personal finances. Is not life full of little coincidences? I received this email from the Daily Record’s political editor. I replied to him politely. This was probably a mistake – I should have… Read the full article:: Craig Murray Daily Record […]

J’Accuse

Source:: Craig Murray J’Accuse A 22 person team from Police Scotland worked for over a year identifying and interviewing almost 400 hoped-for complainants and witnesses against Alex Salmond. This resulted in nil charges and nil witnesses. Nil. The accusations in court were all fabricated and presented on a government platter to the police by a two prong process. The first prong was the civil service witch hunt presided over by Leslie Evans and already condemned by Scotland’s highest civil court as “unlawful, unfair and… Read the full article:: Craig Murray J’Accuse
