2018 – 015 response to petition to keep UK military out of EU control

They do not say unequivocally that UK military will not be under EU control.

The Government has responded to the petition you signed – “Ensure the UK leaves all EU defence rules, policies and structures on 29/03/19.”.

Government responded:

The British people voted to leave the EU, and the Government will respect that decision. We want to develop a new partnership with the EU that builds on our existing security relationship.

We have always said that Parliament must be fully involved in shaping our exit from the EU. The Government has committed to hold a vote on the final deal in Parliament as soon as possible after the negotiations have concluded. This vote will cover both the Withdrawal Agreement and the terms for our future relationship. If Parliament supports the resolution to proceed with the Withdrawal Agreement and the terms for our future relationship, the Government will bring forward a Withdrawal Agreement & Implementation Bill to give the Withdrawal Agreement domestic legal effect.

Where it is necessary to implement future agreements the Government will introduce further legislation where it is needed, ensuring further opportunities for proper parliamentary scrutiny.

I know of no white person alive today in the United States who has ever legally owned a black slave, or any slave for that matter. Almost 700,000 mostly white men died 160 years ago to end slavery. Jim Crow ended generations ago. Yet black America, for the most part, is still locked in inner-city gang violence and economic hardship. Why?

Is it because America is racist?  Is it because of some overhanging white supremacy?  Is it because of the Illuminati?

The first of two things of vital importance to read and consider, as ‘behind the scenes’ the EU trap is quietly being sprung shut by a bunch of rats in London & Westminster, on the one country that has been made to suffer above all others as intended from the start, apart from its global ambitions, the EU was all about, SMASHING BRITAIN & ITS COMMONWEALTH.

 Dear Andrew,
Please see the newspaper article below.
I demand that you work with Jacob Rees-Mogg to have these unelected Whitehall civil servants, Victoria Billing, Alastair Brockbank, Sarah Winter, and Olly Robbins removed from office, questioned where their loyalties lie, and arrested for treason.
Lord Denning (1899-1999) Master of the Rolls said: “To every subject of this land, however powerful, I would use Thomas Fuller’s words over three hundred years ago, ‘Be ye never so high, the law is above you.’ �
The people are the sovereign, that sovereignty being held in trust by Her Majesty. The sovereign instructed a clean Brexit, to stop paying £Billions to the EU, and repatriation of all our powers and pre-eminences, this subversion cannot go unpunished.
With supposed friends like these, who needs enemies, and how many more of them lurk behind the doors of Whitehall?
These people are supposed to do our bidding, not work against us while drawing handsome wages from the public purse.
The people’s patience has worn dangerously thin with these treacherous people.
 I also request that the London School of Economics be investigated for Treason and subversion of Brexit, and for trying to replace our Constitution with a lesser document a little while ago.
yours sincerely

TOP Whitehall officials were caught boasting to EU diplomats that Brexit will be like a KitKat with chocolate covering ties to Brussels for years to come.
tape on webpage
Bombshell tapes passed to The Sun reveal senior civil servants secretly pledging to continue spending taxpayers’ cash propping up Brussels defence and foreign projects — including the controversial “EU Army �.
As part of the deal suggested by a Cabinet Office adviser, EU military officials would be based in Whitehall forever.
Our revelation on Thursday night reignited the bitter war of words between Brexiteers and the Civil Service – who were accused of trying to “hoodwinkâ€� voters.
Angry MPs said vast amounts of detail about the UK’s post-Brexit plans had been shared with other EU countries before them, sparking claims the officials had “briefed against their country�.
A private conference last Friday saw ambassadors and officials from France, Holland, Belgium, Sweden, Poland and Italy meet the Brits at the London School of Economics to discuss post-exit plans.
Victoria Billing and Alastair Brockbank were among the delegates at the conference at the London School of Economics
 European academics also attending were told the discussions were so secret that even the countries that speakers were from should not be reported outside the room.
But one furious attendee blew open the secret chat, telling The Sun: “The public have a right to know what is being carved up behind the scenes.�
Senior Brexit Department official Victoria Billing sparked mocking laughter by describing the defence and foreign policy deal sought by the UK as a “KitKatâ€� – a “coverâ€� hidingg the depths of the continued agreement.
And Cabinet Office security adviser Alastair Brockbank – who works for top Brexit negotiator Olly Robbins – told the diplomats that Britain stood ready to continue paying “significant contributionsâ€� to controversial common EU defence and foreign policy projects adding: “We are interested in it all.â€�
Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg has demanded an official inquiry into the meeting and said it was wrong for British civil servants to brief the other side behind closed doors
And he claimed that Britain could yet fund the Permanent Structured Cooperation that will see 25 EU countries merge their armed forces.
He said as the project grew “we would see what we can contribute towards PESCO still.�
Mr Brockbank boasted that it was civil servants who “are negotiating the detail of that at the same time as we are discussing the political high-level fluffy bits that will go into any declaration that gets made public.�
And he admitted his plans will lead to a nightmare headache for Theresa May, claiming: “Honestly speaking and off the record this has been for us some quite difficult political conversations for us in the UK.�
Last night leading Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg demanded an official inquiry into the meeting, saying: “It is wrong for British civil servants to be briefing the other side in except in a formal negotiation context.â€�

On our our side, on foreign policy and defence, we are actually looking for something… which I normally call a patchwork but someone yesterday called a Kit-Kat which I rather liked, where you have the cover of, you have the kind of political framework cover and underneath you have a series of different agreements.
Senior Brexit Department Official Victoria Billing
He hit out: “Former civil servants rounded on Brexiteers a few months ago and compared them to Nazis for questioning the traditions of the Civil Service and now we have civil servants appearing to brief against their country.�
The top Tory added that the “KitKat comment is a clear attempt to hoodwink voters.�
‘This looks like a clear attempt to fix the game and this must be formally investigated urgently.’

 This is why our military capabilities are being destroyed, and our 2 new aircraft carriers have 2 towers, the first in history. this all started years ago when all our regiments were disbanded and if that wasn’t enough Theresa May now wants our military personnel pumped full of the anthrax vaccine which has caused untold injuries to the American forces. When will the people wake up and actually start to do something. Di
  Match just before 33 minutes in and up to 44. Note Rees-Mogg does not deny what is happening. So what part of Brexit are we leaving? It is plain to see we are in fact going deeper in.

2018 – 011 Fallen Soldier has his say

2018 – 012 Social Media bypasses Main Stream Media

2018 – 009 If Britain is to Brexit properly, it must get out of the EU’s Defence Union

Over the past 18 months, British and European officials in nearly all policy areas have been working out how best to detach the UK from the EU. Perversely, the opposite has been the case in the area of defence. Since November 2016, the UK has joined all parts of the EU’s Defence Union – except one. The UK was one of 3 Member States to opt out of Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO), but involvement in all the other mechanisms will keep Britain attached. The complex web of programmes covers finance, procurement rules and command centres. Unbelievably, this has all happened without a vote in Parliament, and little or no press coverage explaining what is going on behind our backs.

The Government says it wants to participate in schemes – including the European Defence Fund, the European Defence Industrial Programme and the European Defence Agency – even after we have formally left the EU in March 2019. In Munich, Theresa May confirmed her vision included UK deployment of our “significant capabilities and resources with and indeed through EU mechanisms”. But who is choosing which mechanisms are of benefit to Britain and which are not? With a recent change of Defence Minister, this has become even more confusing. What is happening at the moment, behind closed doors is worrying.

Involvement in these programmes will generate significant risks for Britain. We will still be subject to continued payments into Brussels’ coffers. Membership of the emerging Single Market in Defence could require oversight by the European Court of Justice, contradicting Mrs May’s commitment to take us out of the ECJ’s jurisdiction. Thirdly, despite EU claims to the contrary, these programmes will inevitably cause duplication with NATO. Concerns about duplication were expressed in Munich by the NATO Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg, as well as by American officials. It is also unclear how committed the Remaining 27 EU Member States will be on an ongoing basis to NATO. Only Romania, Greece, Estonia and Poland meet the NATO spending target of 2% of GDP. Meanwhile, Germany only manages 1.1%.

How has Britain ended up in this paradoxical position of integration in EU defence while leaving the EU? Partly it is a result of lobbying by self-serving UK defence companies who have been on the receiving end of a charm offensive by EU mandarins – with clear promises of future procurement deals.

Another explanation is the complicated and often dishonest manner of the EU’s drive to integrate. MPs and even ministers – let alone the public – do not seem to be fully aware of the consequences of the convoluted system.

2018 – 007 EU intends to control all artistic activities and copyright

EU intentions for Copyright                   by  Mick Greenhough   12 5 2008           mickgreenhough@yahoo.co.uk

This has been confirmed by the leader of the Independence and Democracy Group in the European Parliament.

There is a European Commission (EC) committee currently sitting to produce an EU Directive – ‘The Status of Artists in Europe’ – that they hope will enable the EC to take control of all artistic activities in Europe. This Directive will be the cause of major consequences for artists and authors- initially for conditions of work but also for copyright when fully implemented.

At first glance this proposed EU Directive would seem to be a very good advance for artists. As with most EU Directives it is not what it at first appears. There will be a very nasty covert sting in the tail.

The interim draft has been published – 2006/2249(INI) 20.3.2007 – but a very significant item from the committee discussions have been omitted.

The following are still being worked on but basically the EC committee, chaired by a Claire Gibault with the support other very Arty Socialist MEPs, want the (unelected) European Commission to:

2018 – 006 EU intends to control all journalists with an EU Press Card

EU Journalist or Propagandist?

From the desk of Elaib Harvey on Fri, 2008-02-15 19:23

Yesterday I received a copy of an open letter from Aidan White, the General Secretary of the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ). And very odd it was. It talked about the idea of a new journalist registration system, with Mr White pointing out that such a thing already exists in the shape of the IFJ card.

I write on behalf of the International Federation of Journalists and the European Federation of Journalists concerning a current discussion within European Union circles over the issuing of a specific European Press Card.

You might like to know that there is already an accreditation in circulation which is recognised by the major organisations of journalists throughout the European Union – the International Press Card of the IFJ.

The IFJ International Press Card (IPC) is the world’s oldest and most reputable press accreditation and provides instant confirmation that the bearer is a working journalist. It is only issued to genuine journalists who are committed to ethical standards and solidarity between media professionals.

Despite his job Mr White is no radical, and often seems pretty tardy on issues relating to press freedom, however here he is bang on. I immediately picked up the phone to the IFJ and spoke to them.

2018 – 004 Freedom of the press and the Parole Board

Let’s hear it for that secular sacrament, the freedom of the press

The words above are not mine, but from the Rev Dr Peter Mullen, our Hon. Chaplain. He wrote them after the news broke last Wednesday that The Sun and the Daily Mail have jointly written to the Parole Board and the Justice Secretary to say that unless the reasons behind the decision to recommend the rapist, John Worboys’, release from prison are published within seven days, the papers’ lawyers will apply for a full judicial review to have that decision overturned.

The Justice Secretary has decided not to seek a judicial review. No-one in the criminal justice system appears to care that a dangerous rapist is about to be released from prison after serving just nine years behind bars, forcing Worboys’ victims to raise money for a judicial review through crowdfunding. Thank goodness we have a free press in this country. Thank goodness the two biggest selling newspapers put their rivalry to one side to fight for justice.

2018 – 002 More on Common Purpose

Very interesting take on Common Purpose, from a blog called ‘The Student Room’.

‘Common Purpose UK is an influential educational charity delivering a range of leadership training programmes to decision-makers drawn from all sectors of society.
It was founded in 1989 by current CEO, Julia Middleton.[1] Its registered office is in London. The legal status of Common Purpose is that of a charity. In 2006 it has employed 142 people and received an income of £6,394,656.

So why does Common Purpose:
• Recruit using public officers in public time and using public facilities?
• Take money directly from the public purse e.g. via education budgets?
• Hold secret meetings under Chatham House rules?
• Use Common Purpose Advisory Board Members as the ‘eyes and ears’ of Common Purpose?
• Actively block and obfuscate Freedom of Information requests asking about public authority expenditure on Common Purpose?
• Use public sector facilities and office space for which it has made no payment nor signed any formal agreements. Is this to evade tax?
• Use an elitist selection procedure which dismisses good people as ‘too Ipswich’ for example?
• Claim to be apolitical when in fact it is extremely pro European Union and promotes the EU political model?
• Promote insolvent bankers such as Lehman Brothers as ‘leadership models’ to schoolchildren and others?
• Redact, strike out and withhold documentation giving details of Common Purpose activities within the public sector such as police, local authorities, government agencies and the military?
• Use the Common Purpose ‘graduate network’ to gain inside information and details of the names and addresses of members of the general public challenging the legitimacy of Common Purpose?
• Use adverse psychological training techniques such as behavioural learning to influence and manipulate ‘graduates’?

Who is involved in this?
Cressida **** is the Common Purpose senior police officer who authorised the “Shoot to kill” policy without reference to Parliament, the law or the British Constitution. Jean de Menezes was one of the innocents who died as a result. Her shoot to kill policy still stands today.
London Borough of Haringey Social Services, as implicated in the disgusting murder of Baby P, facilitated by a catalogue of SS incompetence, lies, cover-ups, as well as the vicious bullying of an innocent whistleblower, has been penetrated by Common Purpose. More than one staff member has been Common Purpose trained. Assistant Director of Community Health and Social Services Carole Wilson attended the 1995 1996 MATRIX Common Purpose Course.
Deputy Chief Officer Warcup is a senior Common Purpose graduate having completed the MATRIX course in 1993/4 whilst Deputy Chief Constable of Northumbria Police Newcastle UK. UK newspapers, including the Daily Mail November 13 2008, have carried major stories concerning the attack by Jersey Police Deputy Chief Officer David Warcup on Lenny Harper, his predecessor in the Jersey force, over possible child murders at Haut de la Garenne. According to the Daily Mail article, David Warcup launched a devastating attack on Mr Harper, saying that he had now ‘ripped up’ much of the evidence presented by his predecessor. Events seem to suggest that the new investigation team are keen to play down events at the Jersey care home. It appears strange that Mr Warcup should ‘rip up’ any evidence, no matter how questionable in such a serious case, particularly as it is evident from cases across the country that thousands of young children are being illegally and unlawfully taken from their families by Social Services, with the active support and backing of the police, courts and judiciary. Many children are snatched using false evidence, perjury, psychological bullying of parents, fraudulent evidence, falsified documents and downright lies.

2017 – 059 Operation Mockingbird

Operation Mockingbird is a covert project to gain control of the worlds media. Started by the CIA but has now been hijacked by the New World Order.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation Mockingbird

The Main Stream Media have a fairly common generally left wing bias – particularly TV. The Soviets claim to have been able to insert Marxist journalists into most of the worlds media.  The BBC is a classic. Several of their senior political commentators were certainly Marxists when at Uni. There are reputed to be some 600 Common Purpose alumni in positions of authority in the BBC. Common Purpose is a crypto Marxist training college that teaches its alumni on how to administer outside of the democratic process.

However Social Media has given ordinary people a world wide voice outside of government control who were otherwise denied exposure. The Establishment are desperately trying to gain control of this ‘dangerous’ media that is out of their control.

Mockingbird is a very little known project reputed to be started by the CIA in the ’50s. It seems now to have been taken on by the UN and the New World Order. More info from the inside is needed.

This not a normal book with a flowing narrative. It is a compilation of relevant articles, comments and quotes combining like pieces of a jigsaw that fit together to give the whole picture.

Mick Greenhough was a committee member of the Leave.eu campaign. During that time he met several MPs, MEPs, journalists, media correspondents and was dismayed at how uninformed the majority of both Remainers and Brexiteers were about the true nature of the EU.

2017 – 057 The National Society for the prevention of Cruelty to Vegetables

Meat Marketing Board                           Mick Greenhough

Milton Keynes

National Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Vegetables


Dear Mr Clapham,

I would like to put a few ideas to you for your consideration.

Firstly to put them in historical context. My first wife became involved with a group of FemiNazies when she was taking a degree in Sociology at Goldsmiths College in 1977. They then took off for Greenham Common in 1981 and became ‘Wimmin’. Strangely they also became vegetarians (Veggies) and some were really very aggressive about it too. It was at that time I formed the National Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Vegetables. The object was initially to mock them into giving a rational reason why they objected to killing animals to eat but were quite at ease killing vegetables (The Veg). I can tell you that their lack of logic was equalled only by their lack of humour.

A few of the aspects I tried to engage them in discussing are listed below (without much success I might add, as their reasoning powers were somewhat limited and their minds completely closed), plus a few more developed since;

You are what you eat – that’s why Veggies seem to end up with brains like cabbages. You only have to talk very briefly with a Veggie to realize how narrow minded, prejudiced, bigoted and intolerant one becomes due to the lack of good, red meat. We, as human beings, are all born equal. The only difference between Veggies and normal people is the lack of meat in their diet. Medical research is continually revealing just how much diet effects our mental stability so it is very difficult to avoid the blindingly obvious conclusion that the lack of meat in your diet turns you barmy.

The Veg have rights too – a potato has as much right to life as a lamb or calf. Just because a potato’s eyes are not soft and brown like a calf that’s no excuse to gouge theirs out, flay it alive and mash it up. How do you know that a potato has no soul?

2017 – 055 The Spanish experience with the EU

 Do you remember how we were told, again and again, in the EU referendum, that the European Union is a great force for peace? In case we doubted that – as, let’s be honest, we did – there was the evidence of it having recently won the Nobel Peace Prize to prove it.

For many years I have regarded Spanish politicians as the most shortsighted of a shortsighted breed (politicians, that is, not Spaniards!) because, in their understandable desire to cement their recently achieved democracy, they had an overwhelming desire to ‘belong’ to every international organisation going. In return for bucket-loads of taxpayers’ cash, principally from the United Kingdom and Germany, Spain bought in to the EU project more than any other western European country. Jeremy Clarkson was famously filmed at a Spanish motorway toll booth refusing to pay the toll because, being British, he said that he had already paid for it; he had a point!

In return for our cash – £billions of it – Spanish politicians embraced the EU as though they had just won top prize in the EuroMillions lottery. To all intents and purposes, they had done precisely that. Like politicians across the continent, they revelled in the Brussels and Strasbourg gravy train and enjoyed the boost to their egos and the 5-star hotels that went with EU summit meetings.

What they foolishly failed to see – or, more likely, chose to ignore – was that every move the EU made was about undermining the nation state. Here in the UK it was easy enough to spot this: EU passports, EU flags, the supremacy of EU law, the burgeoning EU army and gendarmerie, EU Presidents galore, the bloated EU Foreign Ministry and diplomatic corps. It didn’t take a genius to work out that the EU project was all about the destruction of the nation state.

Nationalist politicians in Scotland, Wales and, yes, Catalonia, were not slow to spot this. Were they genuine in their claims to want independence, they would, of course, have sought to leave the EU, so that they could become masters of their own destiny, rather than vassals of Brussels. Why then did Salmond, Sturgeon and their counterparts in Wales, Catalonia and elsewhere embrace EU rule with such fanatical enthusiasm? It can only be because they had the sense to realise that the EU was doing their work for them – destroying the nation states they sought to leave.

Rajoy and the rest of the Spanish political elite have now been hoist by their own petard; their beloved EU has brought Spain to the brink of dissolution. They were too happy accepting EU handouts to see what was happening until it was too late. Now their country is in crisis, while Lombardy and Veneto, to name but a few, look on with interest, seeing opportunities to loosen their ties to Rome. Ironically, it is the Treaty of Rome that may reverse the unification Italy achieved in the 19th century.

As Lord Tebbit warned many years ago, by denying its people any outlet for democratic protest, the EU is sowing the seeds of its own destruction. It is undermining national identity, undermining Nato – in fact it is undermining the very core values it purports to uphold. It is an idea whose time has past.

Hardly a day goes by without the BBC telling us that Brexit is a disaster which must be reversed; the truth is quite the opposite. The crisis in Spain, the success of Eurosceptic political parties in Germany and Austria and Macron’s plans for a bigger EU army and more powers for Brussels – all are evidence that Brexit is no longer just desirable, but essential. Now, more than ever, we shall be Better Off Out.

Dear RAF Chapel Interested Parties,

In an open letter primarily directed towards the RAF community, Randolph Churchill, great grandson of Winston Churchill and Patron of the BHMM Trust, has accused Rita Radford and myself, David Evans, instigators of the 38 Degrees Petition to Protect the Biggin Hill Memorial Chapel, of deceiving signatories into believing that the entire Chapel is being demolished by the London Borough of Bromley.
The BHMM scheme has many contentious aspects, the demolition of the Vestry, the unacceptable design of the Museum building to replace the Vestry, the closure of the Chapel for over a year, and the loss of the St George’s Room to become part of the Museum, to mention just four.  Rather than admit that this is, as stated by Cambridge Professor of Architecture Gavin Stamp, ‘a bad divisive scheme’, the BHMM Trust have influenced  Randolph Churchill to make this undignified claim, without providing the reader with any proof.  The Petition is rightly named ‘Protect’ the Biggin Hill Chapel – against the plans of the London Borough of Bromley who now own the Chapel and are hell bent on ‘bulldozing’ their scheme through, against the wishes of currently 21,000 + signatories.

2017 – 052 EU press card to control all journalists

The European Union (EU) has proposing issuing an EU Press Card (EUPC) and to accredit journalists.


This will be to replace the existing International Federation of Journalists Card that is already universally accepted for a journalist to operate within the EU.


The accreditation and issuing of EUPCs will be controlled by the unelected European Commission (EC). They will decide who can and who cannot be an accredited journalist and who they will allow to have an EUPC.


If the journalist does not report all the activities of the EU in a very positive manner acceptable to the EC then the EC will have the legal right to confiscate their EUPC. The journalist will not then be able to work and report within the EU.

2017 – 050 How the EU is leading the UK into a negotiating quick sand

Martin Howe has given Article 50 a forensic treatment.
It underscores what we already knew, namely that the Article 50 route for the EU was nothing less than a trap for the UK – or perhaps more aptly given developments recently, could be called an area of lethal quicksand.

It starkly reveals how the “transition” not only enables us to leave the EU in name only  after March 2019, but that we would be involved in extremely complex  and unnecessary arrangements open to more protracted disputes which could possibly delay almost indefinitely a real Brexit   (in spite of Mrs May’s repeated assurances about “leave means leave & etc”)

In my view this is a hugely important piece, though long is worth reading and understanding the basic message –  it is a noose being prepared for the UK and given enough rope, we know what our devious political class are capable of.
If you would kindly circulate this to your list then it would do a great service in providing a sound analysis of  the acute  danger we face from the ‘remainers’ by one of the best legal minds today in the UK  on matters EU.  (some of the emphases in bold are mine below)

In this first part of his analysis of the legal and treaty ramifications of the Florence speech ‘implementation period’ proposal, Martin Howe QC explains that:
The EU only has the legal power under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union to agree transitional or interim arrangements once the destination to which the transition leads has been agreed, at least as a framework. There is no power under Article 50 for the EU to agree an open ended transitional period of the kind which many business leaders seem to expect in order to allow time for negotiation about the future relationship.

Because the EU cannot agree to a transitional period until the framework of the future relationship has been agreed, it is impossible for the EU to agree to a transitional period until late 2018 at the earliest. Hopes that such a transition can be agreed ‘by the end of this year’ are naive and totally unrealistic.
