Slippery Tony Blair former Prime Minister of Great Britain is on the ropes, but will he be tried for war crimes here in the UK or the International Criminal Court? (ICC) I doubt it. He will be damaged by the forthcoming Chilcot report, however.
The ICC is a legal weapon of the West, prosecuting African leaders for their crimes while allowing the US, Britain, Saudi Arabia, Israel, and even South American despots to escape justice. There will also, I believe, be no justice here in Britain either, imagine that, British politicians risking their futures by doing the right thing. It would set a precedent.
Also, others would be in the frame as well, Jack Straw for example one-time Minister of Justice. There’s a joke if ever there was one, Minister of Injustice should be his proper moniker. Members of the Civil Service, MI6 and MI5, should be easy to track down too. They are the people who murdered scientist David Kelly, who refused to lie about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Ultimately, it the person who ordered his death who is chiefly responsible; was that Tony Blair or the Minister of Injustice, Jack Straw?
Hopefully, what the Chilcot report will do for Blair, is to make him a pariah beyond the court of public opinion. His fellow Elite criminals won’t openly have his back, but support him secretly while he sinks into oblivion. His ill-gotten gains, the millions he has won through his notoriety should be given to the Iraqi people and the families of the young men he sent to die on a lie.
Am I dreaming, am I off-target here? Well, yes, the chances of justice doing its job are probably pie-in-the-sky, these perverted psychopaths have amassed vast amounts of wealth and have enough dirt on their peers to ensure their escape from legal sanction right up to their death. Let’s pray that happens sooner rather than later.
“The long-awaited Chilcot report into the Iraq war is reportedly set to savage Tony Blair and other former government officials in an “absolutely brutal” verdict on the failings of the occupation.”
A review by Dame Janet Smith identified 72 sexual crimes by Jimmy Savile when working at the BBC. These are not the only crimes he committed but only the ones at the BBC. The BBC knew Savile was a paedophile and sexual predator for decades and did nothing.
The crimes committed at the BBC were only the tip of the iceberg he also molested women, girls, boys and dead bodies at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury. Other places he is known to abused patients and staff are Broadmoor High Security Hospital, Leeds General Infirmary, Haut de la Garenne children’s home and other children’s homes.
The full extent of his abuse is not known, but “In November 2014 the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt announced that the enquiry had been widened, with the number of NHS organisations investigating allegations of abuse by Savile extended to 41”. (BBC News)
Here is a list of Jimmy Saviles offending as reported in the Telegraph:
Jimmy Savile sexually assaulted 57 women/girls and 15 boys
21 of Savile’s female victims were aged under 16 (the youngest sexual assault victim was eight)
36 of his female victims were aged 16 or over
13 of Savile’s victims were boys aged under 16 (the youngest sexual assault victim was nine)
2 male victims were aged 16 or over
The youngest girl Savile raped was aged 13
The youngest boy Savile raped was aged 10
The earliest known incident was the rape of a 13-year-old girl at Lime Grove in 1959
Savile’s last known incident was in 2006, involving the indecent touching of an adult woman following the last Top of the Pops recording
Dame Janet identified 72 BBC victims of Savile in connection with his work at the BBC, including eight rapes (six female and two male) and one attempted rape (female).
The majority of his assaults took place in the Seventies (44), one took place in 1959, 10 in the Sixties, 17 in the Eighties, three in the Nineties and one in the 2000s
The largest number (19) were assaulted in connection with Top of the Pops.
17 victims were assaulted in connection with Jim’ll Fix It
My letter to STV via the Humane Society International:
Stop supplying glue traps they are CRUEL!
For many years I have had concerns about animal traps, from the types that hunters use to capture larger game, to the type you manufacture as ‘pest’ control. Your traps are inhumane, they result in unbelievable suffering to rodents and other creatures that wander on to them.
STV Pest Control produces glue traps and I want you to stop. It is cruel to trap an animal in such a way. The Humane Society agrees and I ask you to stop manufacturing and selling rodent glue traps. It is beyond me that such an inhumane method of control can be countenanced by humans who should possess reason and empathy. Furthermore, I cannot believe that in the UK such devices are not illegal. I hope that you consider the evidence and concerns of consumers and remove glue traps from your product range.
Will STV support the campaign by Humane Society International to promote humane, non-lethal pest control. There are alternatives to trapping and killing rodents, they can be prevented from entering property and encouraged to leave with the use of repellent sprays and ultrasonic devices. Will you meet the demand of ethical consumers like myself by developing non lethal products?
I would appreciate your thoughts on these two separate issues and look forward to hearing back from you.

Police Admit Wrongly Arresting Rape Victim and Payout £20,000
Originally reported in the Guardian and on Women Against Rape website.
A rape victim falsely accused of lying by detectives has won £20,000 in damages after suing police under the Human Rights Act. The woman, who cannot be named, was 17 when a man raped her in Winchester in April 2012 after a night out with friends. Her mother reported the attack hours later and the victim told officers her T-shirt may contain her attacker’s DNA.
But the garment was never sent for forensic testing and weeks later the girl, who has mental health problems, was accused of lying about the rape and arrested for perverting the course of justice. During the arrest, one detective told her: “This is what happens when you lie.”
Documents seen by the Guardian reveal that detectives from Hampshire police decided within two days of the rape report that the girl was lying. A detective inspector, who was supervising the inquiry, told a junior colleague: “Fucking nick her.”
But six months later – after a complaint by the girl’s mother about her treatment – a new team of officers reviewed the investigation and informed the mother and her daughter that they believed her. The T-shirt was sent for testing, and the suspect, Liam Foard, was tried and found guilty.
Hampshire police have apologised to the family and admitted liability for false imprisonment and assault. The force accepted there was a breach of its duties under the Human Rights Act to properly investigate the rape.
“My second name hasn’t always been Duckshoot; I was born at the end of that terrible episode in the history of the earth called the Second World War. My parents allegedly assigned their family name to me on passing ownership of me to the Government (Registration of Birth). Being a very tiny baby at the time I cannot swear that this is correct, so I adopted a new name in 2015 that I chose for myself. So that it is official, and I could use it for banking, pensions and my tenancy agreement, for example, I registered it by Deed Poll.”
“Modern living prevents people from being completely free and; therefore, the Deed Poll is a necessary inconvenience. There is no lawful (or legal) requirement to register a change of name in the UK, but you would have to live entirely off the radar if you chose to do so. You couldn’t have a proper home or a job; you couldn’t get free healthcare or a pension when old like me.”
“Life has become increasingly complicated in the 70+ years I have ridden this planet and love of our fellow humans has regressed. The changes have been relatively gradual, so we have slowly accepted it as the norm. It is all part of the control of the elite class and their Corporations. A few people in this world feed off the rest of us, and it starts with the registration of our birth.”
The 16-Year-old’s Complaint About Being ‘Violated’ Was Ignored
Pervert police officers stripped the teen girl naked and left her in a cell at Skegness police station (pictured) forcing the 16-Year-old’ to wait in the nude for ten minutes. They removed everything, her clothing and underwear. She later complained, but they ignored the complaint.
Their excuse for this violation of her human rights was that she might self-harm. What decent humans would have done would be to find alternative clothing, all police stations have these, and helped her undress and dress to save her embarrassment and trauma. However, as is often the case psycho cops lack empathy and as extra punishment, they left her with no means to protect her dignity.
At some point in the debacle, a male copper pushed her while she was naked! Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) reviewed CCTV of the incident and have blasted Lincolnshire Police for the way they handled it. In a custody inspection report, HMIC concluded officers were “too ready to remove clothing with too little consideration for dignity”.
If you are not moved by this woman’s anguish, you are dead! Now watch the full video and tell me that cops are not psychopathic murderous BASTARDS!
Mother, Gina Best, pleads for justice on behalf of her daughter, India Kager, the 27-year-old who was murdered by police in 2015. The video is hard to watch, and the mother’s anguish is clear to see.
A SWAT team fired 30 rounds into her car because they say her partner was going to commit a serious crime. They knew India was in the car, along with her 4-month-old baby boy who was laying on the back seat.
India was trying to protect her child when several shots went into her back and killed her. Apparently black lives don’t matter in America where assassinations of black and poor people are a daily occurrence by psychopathic cops.
UPDATE: Police are refusing to cooperate with the family, refusing to release video footage of the SWAT attack, refusing to release the autopsy report, refusing to release India’s belongings and her car.
A person who moves from one place to another in order to find work or better living conditions Refugee
A person who has been forced to leave their country in order to escape war, persecution, or natural disaster.
Editor’s Comment. This post is interesting and has a sensible solution to the refugee crisis. TheDuckShoot Blog mostly goes along with Roger Gough’s hypothesis and the article is published with the minimum of editing. His use of the word “migrant” has been replaced with’refugee’ as most of the people who are fleeing their country are indeed refugees. There is a difference. There is one mention of migrant I haven’t changed because it is part of a quote.

In early December, the German Chancellor Angela Merkel was chosen as Time magazine’s “Person of the Year”. As she and the European Commission are directly responsible – through either sheer ineptitude or disinterest – for the deaths of every refugee who has drowned in the Mediterranean in the past six months, it’s difficult to appreciate the reasoning behind the award. Is it too late for Time magazine to reconsider this entirely inappropriate appellation?
In mid-September, I attended a public meeting in my local town, Stroud, which had been called to discuss the European refugee crisis. Then it was well known that many refugees were attempting to reach what they considered the safety of Europe via entirely unsuitable, flimsy water-going craft provided by criminal people-smugglers, mostly Turkish-based, on payment of hefty fees. Many, if not all, of these refugees, had been promised refuge in Germany by Ms Merkel, who, dictator-like, seemingly made her promise unilaterally without taking advice and having no regard to the future of her country nor that of Germany’s EU partner countries. Many, many refugees drowned and, to this day, continue to, and this situation can be directly attributed to Ms Merkel and her acquiescent cronies.
At the Stroud meeting, with details of the people-smuggling operations widely acknowledged as not being a recent phenomenon. I asked members of the distinguished panel why the EU, who were required to respond to the crisis, had not put in place measures to totally sidetrack the people-smugglers, thereby ensuring the safe passage of all refugees to Germany and thus obviating the need for all open-boat travel via the Mediterranean. The logistics were surely simple: refugees wanted to get to Europe and were willing to pay large sums of money to organised criminals to do so. The EU with limitless resources and with the assistance of Turkey (keen beyond measure to join said EU to gain access to its largesse), could direct the refugees to suitable locations where they could be safely processed. Make their (reduced) travel payments to the EU rather than crooks, and then enjoy safe passage via air routes to Germany.
My suggestion seemed to non-plus the panel which struggled for a response to this seemingly sensible and readily achievable proposal. After a pregnant pause, one-panel member – a noted academic – began to laugh nervously (maybe from disbelief of my EU criticism) and then blustered that “the EU are probably about to implement such proposals”. Four months on and I’ve seen no evidence to support that assertion: the BBC are this week still reporting on tens of thousands of such voyagers landing in the EU, others are still drowning. What has happened though is that the EU has given – unconditionally it seems – 3-billion (sic) Euros to the Turkish Government to ease the problem. For that regal sum we learn that “Turkey detains 1,300 migrants” (Guardian 1.12.15). Pardon? There are no reports of people traffickers being arrested, so it would appear that the EU have simply abandoned thousands of refugees – men, women and children – to the ‘care’ of unprincipled criminal gangs.
Was my anti-trafficking suggestion impractical? Not being a politician and not knowing the full facts (who does?), I will admit to having self-doubt until I read the (Guardian) critique of a TV programme broadcast on BBC1 on 13th December entitled “Saving the forgotten Jews”. The review bears repetition.
“Operation Moses and Operation Solomon were the means by which in 1984 and 1991, Israel rescued Ethiopia’s Jewish population from, respectively, famine and political upheaval. The programme tells the story of these two covert airlifts and the people who planned them, among them a diplomat, a Mossad spy and a Manchester textiles merchant. Both operations were acts of logistical complexity and derring-do. Solomon saw 14,500 people carried on 35 aircraft, at one point cramming more than a thousand into a single 747.”
As can be seen, these were ‘covert airlifts’ of ‘logistical complexity’ – not airlifts with the luxury of 3 billion Euros working capital. One wonders if Germany sought counsel from the Israeli nation: obviously well skilled in such situations?
The conclusions to be drawn from this ongoing debacle are clear: if the EU cannot on political, diplomatic and humanitarian levels organise a relatively simple operation to save hundreds if not thousands of lives, why should such an inept construct which receives British contributions of over £50,000,000 per day remain in existence? It also shows beyond argument that even organised crime, without the need for capacious Parliament buildings and battalions of self-aggrandizing apparatchiks, is capable of out-performing the EU – as indeed are Manchester textile merchants.
The public are waking up and realising that the way food is produced is cruel. They are demanding that the producers, they are not farmers, stop the intensive production methods that cause pain and suffering to the creatures in their care.
However, reform of their cruel methods costs money, and they attempt to block any changes in laws to even reduce the suffering, let alone eliminate it. They employ lobbyists to government and misleading advertising for the public.
Here’s the list of ten shocking facts hidden from consumers by the egg industry:
1. Chickens are genetically bred to overproduce eggs. Healthy production of eggs is twelve eggs per year. In other words, eggs produce chicks or is the chicken’s menstrual cycle!
2.The over-production of eggs causes disease, pain and early death, but why let that stand in the way of profit.
3. Chickens are sensitive, intelligent and social creatures, yet animal cruelty laws do not apply to keeping poultry.
4. Standard conditions for egg-laying hens are atrocious; even so-called free-range chickens have restricted movement.
5. Mutilation and starvation are standard practice in the industry.
6. Male chicks are ground up alive or discarded like garbage in plastic bags.
7. Eventually, egg-laying hens are slaughtered, usually after 1-2 years.
8. The environment suffers from chicken poop polluting rivers and lakes.
9. Salmonella poisoning, cancer and type 2 diabetes are linked to egg consumption.
10. The industry lies to the public with deceptive marketing and a ten million dollar advertising budget.
Isn’t it time we stopped this cruelty? Even free-range eggs are not cruelty free, and some free-range farms have accommodation so restrictive that the claim of free-range is well-oiled deception. Although this video is about Costco in the USA, this is how eggs are also produced in Britain and Europe too.
