Tory tactics: remove large amounts of funding, then give back a little and tell you how grateful to be

Labour promises to have a ‘really good relationship’ with businesses that are ripping us off…

… and here’s what firms that have been ripping us off have done with the money

Civil servant broke rules in discussion about job with Labour Party – but it had no effect on her work

It turns out that the fuss over Sue Gray, who led a Cabinet Office inquiry into Partygate, talking with Labour about taking a job there was about nothing, after all. She broke the rules, but none of her work was affected, and certainly not her Partygate inquiry, which was long-finished by the time she began her discussions with Keir Starmer’s crew.

This is a non-story. If the mass media go big on it, you’ll know they’re hiding something else.

    I remember reading in another blog of the ‘Bethlehem Doctrine’ And no, not the place, AFAIK it’s a Dr Bethlehem who authored it. It discusses the issue of ‘self defence’ and what can be considered such for the intervention of the state in military or extra judicial actions including targeted killings.

    The doctrine has it that (and I’m very much paraphrasing) that self defence does not need to wait for an action to begin. eg you don’t need to wait til someone pulls a gun on you. You don’t need to wait until he comes to town with a gun either. You can shoot him before he BUYS the gun because you think he MIGHT buy one and, if he does, he MIGHT use it on you.

    This is the background to actions of ‘self defence’ by IDF. Of course using this doctrine as justification means almost anyone is a target. Civilians, journalists, scientists, foreign army officers are all fair game and have all been targeted using this doctrine. So, is this self defence or is it state sponsored murder??
