Has Theresa May got it wrong over the Brexit negotiation plan?

The problem really lies in that integration reached a level with the EU that it be easier for California cede from the United States than the UK from the EU. The reality is that our politicians have not been truthful about the level of integration already in place. Secondly, Global Capitalism does not recognise borders and the movement of manufacturing from the UK to EU will be eagerly awaited by many member states of the EU.
Do we have a model for economic disintegration after the collapse of a trading bloc. In fact we do have a model, the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Contrary to popular belief the Empire was not as economically backward as some textbooks tell us. In fact The GNP per capita grew roughly 1.76% per year from 1870–1913. That level of growth compared very favorably to that of other European nations such as Britain (1%). The Empire built up the fourth-largest machine building industry of the world. Austria-Hungary was also the world’s third largest manufacturer and exporter of electric home appliances, electric industrial appliances and facilities for power plants, after the United States and the German Empire.
After the collapse of this Empire/trading area it disintegrated, as the victorious powers drew lines on a map , these territorial lines split up the manufacturing process, and of course new currencies lead to further instabilities. So within a matter of a few years, economic disintegration had taking place. Maybe voter in the United Kingdom should have been told the history of the collapse of this central economic bloc and maybe learn this lesson from history.

Theresa May Theresa May, Prime Minister Pic Credit: conservatives.com


Theresa May is about to trigger Article 50 and go into negotiations with the other 27 European Union countries to sort out arrangements covering British trade with this huge market. It is a complete mystery how Britain is going to play its cards and Theresa May doesn’t want to give anything away.

However  a fascinating  post  from Stewart Wood, a former adviser to  Labour PM, Gordon Brown and  later to  Ed Miliband, suggests that she does have a strategy but it may be the wrong one.

Drawing from his experience in Whitehall  he suggests that Theresa May plans to draw from her experience as home secretary where she successfully negotiated an opt out on police and criminal justice matters – choosing to opt back in to measures she accepted.

She plans to use this…

2017 Feb 2 Sott.net Joachim Hagopian [1] Pizzagate turned PedoGate Leads to Momentum Surge in Busting Global Child Sex Trafficking Rings

This article will examine the current status of the so called “Pizzagate” scandal. But from here on out this presentation will refer to it as PedoGate for several reasons. Pedogate involves global child sex trafficking networks that have been operating over a lengthy period of time, far beyond the WikiLeaks release of the John Podesta emails and his obsession over “pizza,” and incriminating contents found on disgraced former New York…

Why is latest Met Police Corruption Scandal dragging on?

Often the media focus on the corruption of third world police forces, its time they saved on travel expenses and looked closer to home for corruption.
Suspicion is that the guilty are high up in the Westminster Police Licensing Unit, the process will be delayed, evidence lost, witnesses unavailable and the relatively low pecking order people like Partridge will be left to take the blame, if any blame is laid.

Westminster Confidential

home-office Home Office: trying to define child sexual exploitation Pic credit: gov.uk


This week  the Home Office quietly announced a new definition of child sexual exploitation which will be used by all practitioners in the field – from the police and social workers to voluntary organisations and charities.

The decision was overshadowed by an announcement that the Government was spending an extra £40m tackling child sex abuse.

It included the launch of a new Centre of Expertise on child sexual abuse, an extra £20 million for the National Crime Agency to tackle online child sexual exploitation, £2.2 million for organisations working to protect children at risk of trafficking and the launch of Independent Child Trafficking Advocates (ICTAs) in 3 early-adopter sites across the UK.

The latter service will initially be provided by Barnardo’s in Wales, Hampshire and Greater Manchester ahead of a full national roll out.

Will David Cameron’s National Citizen Service deliver results for poor disaffected ” hard to reach ” youth?

Westminster Confidential

One of David Cameron’s  legacies from his  ” Big Society ” initiative is the creation of a National Citizen Service for 15 to 17 year olds where they could go to summer camps.take part in adventurous sports like rock climbing and kayaking  and undertake community work and local projects for four weeks.

He bequeathed Theresa May with a bill setting up a national trust with a Royal Charter so it could be implemented nationwide. So enamoured was David Cameron with the idea  he has agreed to be chair of the patrons of the new trust.

But since Theresa May took office it has suffered two body blows. She has limited the money and dropped a commitment to a statutory requirement for schools and colleges to publicise it. None of this…

The next day, Cook was told by anti-corruption officers that Sid Fillery had been in touch with reporter Alex Marunchak at the News of the World asking him to “sort out” the detective. Yet the British Government want to give Sky to Murdoch.




BY THE late 1990s Scotland Yard had made no progress in catching the men who butchered private detective Daniel Morgan in 1987.

Then in 1998 anti-corruption detectives — worried that bent policemen were selling sensitive information to the detective agency Southern Investigations  — installed a bug in the firm’s offices.

Southern’s owners — murder suspect Jonathan Rees and retired police sergeant Sid Fillery — had no idea they were under surveillance.

PRIVATE EYE Jonathan Rees (left) should have been a prime suspect in the murder of his partner Daniel Morgan in 1987 — the two men were love rivals and were arguing about a botched security operation arranged by Rees. But Scotland Yard detective sergeant Sid Fillery (right) kept that crucial information from the murder squad for four days. For the events leading up to the murder, the early contaminated murder inquiry, the sensational inquest which…

Exclusive: How the equality watchdog sacked a disabled army veteran and IRA bomb survivor by email

Just about says it all, I remember the days when this organisation and many like it believed that their organisations had something to contribute to the changing of society. Now they reflect the corporate society in which we live, people are disposable to reach some hidden target set by the corporate management of organisations.

Late last year this blog featured the case of  57 year old Markus Caruana,  who works in corporate communications at the Birmingham office of the Equality and Human Rights Commission.To recap

He is a former flute player in the Corps of Drums with the Grenadier Guards.

Markus Caruana was unfortunate enough to have been both at the Guildford pub bombings in 1974 and the Chelsea Barracks bombing in 1981 which seriously injured regimental bandsmen from the Irish Guards.

He escaped unscathed in both instances but saw three of his friends killed in an IRA attack in Crossmaglen in Northern Ireland.

He left the army in 1985 to become a landscape gardener and then took advantage of a Unison…
