Has the Labour party of the UK whom Harold Wilson was presiding over at the breakout of the Biafran War of 1967 ever acknowledged the part they played in a great loss of innocent lives?

Year of #ExtremeWeather creates confusion for #Britain's #flora and #fauna

It was a year of extremes as far as the #weather was concerned: pounding rain, violent summer storms, some mild winter months and periods of searing sunshine.
An annual audit of how this year’s weather has affected flora and fauna in the #UK has concluded that it was, to say the least, a challenging 12 months.

A Very British Coup?

Former Royal Navy Trident Submarine Commander Assesses


Dr Andrew Corbett, of the Joint Services Command and Staff College, delves into evidence that the Government is actively undermining British democracy

Coups happen in other countries – they are not something the public would ever expect in Britain. But could such a thing be occurring in plain sight here today or is this simply a wild exaggeration of a few bumps in road in our democracy?

Let's talk about the F-word


Best for Britain polled more than a thousand SME (small/medium enterprise) owners and asked them to express, in just five words, their feelings on Brexit, the coronavirus recession, and the future in general.

Which word appeared boldest and brightest? I’ll give you a clue – it wasn’t ‘fudge’. In these uncertain times, our most multi-talented swear-word seems to be a familiar fall-back.

20 Artists’ Visions of Alice in Wonderland From the Last 155 Years

"Curiouser and Curiouser!"


By Emily Temple
May 4, 2020

It was 155 years ago today, on May 4th, 1865, when Alice tumbled down the rabbit hole.



Carroll chose the day because it was Alice Liddell’s birthday (in 1865, she turned 13). Since then, Alice and her compatriots have been reimagined countless times, and inspired creative work of just about every genre. These days, it feels like we’re all down one rabbit hole or another, so it seemed just as good a time as any to revisit some of the best artistic treatments Alice and the gang have gotten over the years, from the classic Tenniel illustrations to moody drawings by Mervyn Peake (yes, that Mervyn Peake) to creations filtered by Yayoi Kusama’s bright, bubbly brain. Down you go.

The Scottish Parliament Does Have the Right to Withdraw from the Act of Union


17 Dec, 2018 in Uncategorized by craig

The London Supreme Court last week not only confirmed that the Westminster Parliament could overrule at will any Scottish Government legislation, irrespective of the Scotland Act and the Sewell Convention, but it also ruled that Westminster had already successfully done so, by retrospectively passing provisions in the EU (Withdrawal) Act that overruled the Bill on the same subject, within the competence of the Scottish Parliament, that had already been passed by Holyrood.

Not content with that, the London Supreme Court confirmed that London ministers may, by secondary legislation, under the Scotland Act decree laws for Scotland that are not even passed through the Westminster parliament.

Which leaves Scotland in this extraordinary situation. English MPs or English ministers in their London Parliament can, at any time, impose any legislation they choose on Scotland, overriding Scotland’s parliament and Scotland’s representation in the London parliament. Yet, under the English Votes for English Laws rules of the London Parliament introduced by the Tories in 2015, Scottish MPs cannot vote at all on matters solely affecting England.

That is plainly a situation of colonial subservience.

I am firmly of the view that the Scottish government should now move to withdraw from the Treaty of Union. Scotland’s right to self determination is inalienable. It cannot be signed away forever or restricted by past decisions.

The Independence of a country is not a matter of domestic law it is a matter of international law. The right of the Scottish Parliament to declare Independence may not be restricted by UK domestic law or by purported limitations on the powers of the Scottish Parliament. The legal position is set out very clearly here:

5.5 Consistent with this general approach, international law has not treated the legality of
the act of secession under the internal law of the predecessor State as determining the effect
of that act on the international plane. In most cases of secession, of course, the predecessor
State‟s law will not have been complied with: that is true almost as a matter of definition.

5.6 Nor is compliance with the law of the predecessor State a condition for the declaration
of independence to be recognised by third States, if other conditions for recognition are
fulfilled. The conditions do not include compliance with the internal legal requirements of
the predecessor State. Otherwise the international legality of a secession would be
predetermined by the very system of internal law called in question by the circumstances in
which the secession is occurring.

5.7 For the same reason, the constitutional authority of the seceding entity to proclaim
independence within the predecessor State is not determinative as a matter of international
law. In most if not all cases, provincial or regional authorities will lack the constitutional
authority to secede. The act of secession is not thereby excluded. Moreover, representative
institutions may legitimately act, and seek to reflect the views of their constituents, beyond
the scope of already conferred power.

That is a commendably concise and accurate description of the legal position. Of major relevance, it is the legal opinion of the Government of the United Kingdom, as submitted to the International Court of Justice in the Kosovo case. The International Court of Justice endorsed this view, so it is both established law and the opinion of the British Government that the Scottish Government has the right to declare Independence without the agreement or permission of London and completely irrespective of the London Supreme Court.

I have continually explained on this site that the legality of a Declaration of Independence is in no sense determined by the law of the metropolitan state, but is purely a matter of recognition by other countries and thus acceptance into the United Nations. The UK Government set this out plainly in response to a question from a judge in the Kosovo case:
  • As the United Kingdom stated in oral argument, international law contains no
    prohibition against declarations of independence as such. 1 Whether a declaration of
    independence leads to the creation of a new State by separation or secession depends
    not on the fact of the declaration but on subsequent developments, notably recognition
    by other States. As a general matter, an act not prohibited by international law needs
    no authorization. This position holds with respect to States. It holds also with respect
    to acts of individuals or groups, for international law prohibits conduct of non-State
    entities only exceptionally and where expressly indicated.
As I have stressed, the SNP should now be making a massive effort to prepare other countries, especially in the EU and in the developing world, to recognise Scotland when the moment comes. There is no task more important. There is a worrying lack of activity in this area. It may currently not be possible to spend government money on sending out envoys for this task, but if personal envoys were endorsed by the First Minister they would get access and could easily be crowd funded by the Independence Movement. I am one of a number of former senior British diplomats who would happily undertake this work without pay. We should be lobbying not just the EU but every country in Africa, Asia and South America.

My preferred route to Independence is this. The Scottish Parliament should immediately legislate for a new Independence referendum. The London Government will attempt to block it. The Scottish Parliament should then convene a National Assembly of all nationally elected Scottish representatives – MSPs, MPs and MEPs. That National Assembly should declare Independence, appeal to other countries for recognition, reach agreements with the rump UK and organise a confirmatory plebiscite. That is legal, democratic and consistent with normal international practice.

There will never be a better time than now for Scotland to become an Independent, normal, nation once again. It is no time for faint hearts or haverers; we must seize the moment.

Another fatberg in England had to be removed


(I knew this story sounded oh-too familiar to me: They once had to remove a fatberg from the city's sewage system next to London, because people seem to use a certain kind of wet towels that binds all the grease and what-not that flows through the sewers, thus forming a big giant mountain of fat, that eventually plugging all the liquid that was supposed to come through. One can only imagine what it had to be like for the workers who had to remove it. Now, here they went again.)
"Workers have braved exceptionally challenging conditions to break up the beast," SWW said.
The beast from the East? ;-)
SWW asked people not to "pour fats, oil or grease down the drain, or flush wet-wipes down the loo".
English exceptionalism, I guess: To think that it would be anyhow logical to flush down grease or oil down the toilet instead of dumping it in the apparent means like a decent, civilised human being.

Does Britain persecute «thought criminals»?


According to Green, Farrow had “misgendered” her 26-year-old child, Jackie, who, born male, became Britain’s youngest transsexual at the age of 16. In addition, Green claims that Farrow committed “hate incidents” when she wrote on Twitter that the penile inversion surgery that Jackie underwent in Thailand was “mutilation,” “castration,” and “child abuse.”

Let this sink in for a moment, because the latter words mentioned in the chapter, if she used them truly, are far beyond misgendering but go rather towards intentionally insulting the victim, spreading lies and agitating hatred. This also goes far beyond free speech, it reminds me of Trump's language.

Some may find Farrow’s tweets wrong or bluntly put. But others would agree that altering children’s genitals and setting them up for a lifetime of complications (including sterility and sexual dysfunction) does indeed constitute “mutilation” and is indeed “child abuse.” Others may consider such surgeries to be morally equivalent to, or even worse than, female genital mutilation done for cultural or religious reasons. Which perhaps explains why Farrow felt that blunt language was necessary.

The author assumes, if I understood it correctly, that her mother let a doctor execute this operation without her daughter's consent, against her outspoken will. Did this happen? Nope. Thus, these words are not only bluntly put, but also completely misled.

All of this is deeply sinister. What business is it of the police to prevent people from offending each other? What do they hope to gain by investigating law-abiding citizens and journalists? Why aren’t politicians speaking out against this insanity? The rise of the woke police is a thoroughly menacing development that will be used by ideologues and extremists to bully the general public into silence on important debates.

House of Commons speaker John Bercow refuses third vote on Brexit Deal


(I guess that he is sick of all the dis-orda in the House, which is the reason why he had to cut it all out. Frankly, I am thankful for this decision - they were in no way ready to ever find a meaningful and final decision if they weren't told to stop. The constructive face in this mess had long ended, it was a dying carcass that didn't want to accept its demise.)
Downing Street was blindsided by the announcement and unable to give a response at its regular afternoon briefing for journalists. “The speaker did not forewarn us of the content of his statement or the fact that he was making one,” May’s spokeswoman said.

“The Leader of the House is playing with her electronic device, and so is the deputy chief whip. I didn’t include him in the category of very senior people in the House but that’s a debatable proposition I readily grant.”

House of Commons speaker John Bercow refuses third vote on Brexit Deal


(I guess that he is sick of all the dis-orda in the House, which is the reason why he had to cut it all out. Frankly, I am thankful for this decision - they were in no way ready to ever find a meaningful and final decision if they weren't told to stop. The constructive face in this mess had long ended, it was a dying carcass that didn't want to accept its demise.)
