Lyndsay Hoyle has triggered a wave of Islamophobia by politicians. Media stoke it

Lee Anderson: he’s known to be a big fan of the fellow on the left who said women who wear the burqa look like “bank robbers” and “letterboxes”, so it should be no surprise that he’s a raving Islamophobe.

Here’s how politicians create hysteria from nothing – cheered on by the media.

There’s no evidence that people who support Palestine, or Muslims, or anyone is threatening MPs.

There’s no evidence that Islamists are dominating our streets.

But already this false claim is being used to fuel demands for a new clampdown on protest that could turn the UK into a draconian police state.

Elbit: UK awards Israeli arms firm new contract – despite Gaza genocide

Protest: Elbit is regularly targeted by protest group Palestine Action, that aims to shut down and disrupt multinational arms dealers, especially UK-based operations that provide weapons used in the Israel/Palestine conflict [Image: Palestine Action].

This is the reason the UK is being accused of complicity in the Gaza genocide; this country is giving your money to an arms manufacturer whose weapons are being used to carry it out:

The UK government has been accused of being “totally complicit” in the deaths of tens of thousands of people in Gaza after handing a fresh round of public cash to the British arm of Israeli arms manufacturer Elbit.

A Ministry of Defence contract dated 17 January represents the first time Britain has struck a deal with Elbit’s UK subsidiary since Israel laid siege to Gaza following the 7 October attacks by Hamas.

Elbit reportedly supplies up to 85% of Israel’s drones and land-based military equipment, describing its Hermes 450 drones – which have been used by Israel for strikes on Hamas targets in Gaza in recent months – as “the backbone of the Israeli Defence Forces”.

Its latest contract, which is worth £25,000, was awarded four days after thousands marched through central London to call for a ceasefire in Gaza as part of a global day of action last month.

South Africa to take UK and USA to the ICJ for war crime complicity

The International Court of Justice.

I can’t find the source for this but here’s Skwawkbox:

A team of almost fifty South African lawyers is preparing a legal case to bring to the International Court of Justice (ICJ), the United Nations’ top court, against the US and UK, for their complicity in Israel’s array of war crimes in Gaza and the occupied West Bank.

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

South Africa’s successful ICJ case against Israel last month led to Israel being put formally on trial for genocide and resulted in a string of binding orders on Israel to stop its slaughter of Gazans and even to protect Palestinians from harm, as well as to ensure adequate aid reaches the strip’s 2.5 million people, many of whom are now starving and homeless.

Israel has flouted the rulings, continuing and even intensifying the mass murder and blockade, and is being supported in its flagrant disregard for international law by the UK and US, who are providing both material and financial aid, and giving political cover by refusing to condemn Israel’s actions or to call its crimes what they are, instead casting doubt on the mass deaths and brutality and denigrating the Court’s ruling.

Here’s Damo to put more flesh on these bones:

This Site has been vocal in its support for the UK, at the very least, to be brought to book for complicity in genocide.

Rishi Sunak (himself aided and abetted by Labour leader Keir Starmer) sowed the wind and now it seems he’ll reap the whirlwind…

Except the International Court of Justice doesn’t have any muscle with which to support its rulings.

Any finding against the UK will have a huge effect on public perception, though.

It will tar this country’s government as a supporter of genocide and a flouter of international law.

Defunding UNRWA could be a primary act of genocide. Is the UK guilty?

UNRWA staff at work: do you see any terrorism here? [Archive image.]

The United Kingdom may have committed a primary act of genocide against the people of Gaza by acting to defund the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine (UNRWA), based on nothing more than an unproven claim by Israel against 12 of its staff.

That is the claim by Tayab Ali, a director of the International Centre of Justice for Palestinians, as shown in the video clip below:

So, defunding UNRWA is collective punishment because it punishes the Palestinian people of Gaza as a whole, and although there is no single crime called “collective punishment”, the crimes that constitute it are recognised by countries including the UK. Therefore, in defunding UNRWA, the UK may be contributing to those crimes.

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

But the UK may also be committing a primary act of genocide. The International Court of Justice has made a provisional order that the rights of Palestinians should be protected, which should trigger the UK’s obligations as a signatory of the Genocide Act – to protect people from genocide.

By defunding UNRWA, the UK has taken an action that could accelerate death and suffering in Gaza, in concert with the activities of the state that is accused of being the primary perpetrator of genocidal acts.

So the UK, along with the United States, Germany, Japan and a few others, are now potential suspects to be investigated for war crimes.

But there’s a darker aspect to this.

Mr Ali suggested that, by defunding UNRWA after the ICJ used it as a source of information that led it to make its ruling, the UK is telling the ICJ and the United Nations that some nations should be considered above the law, and both the ICJ and UN will face reprisals if they do not grant them special dispensation (in this case, to murder or displace everybody in Gaza).

In short: is the UK telling the ICJ and UN that it owns those organisations – at least in part – and will remove its ability to function if it does not exempt the UK and other owners from the rules to which they all signed up?

And is this because the UK’s government is worried about being held complicit in the crime the ICJ is investigating?

Mr Ali suggested that South Africa or an intervening state should consider triggering Article 63 of the International Court of Justice Statute, making states like the UK parties to the ruling, so that it becomes binding on them because they have defunded UNRWA.

Finally, he points out the suspicious timing of the allegation against UNRWA – that Israel decided to make its claim that 12 staff members were terrorists, right after the ICJ made its ruling.

Even if that allegation is true, the activities of 12 members of staff do not justify defunding the entire organisation.

Furthermore, that allegation has been made by a country that is plausibly accused of committing genocidal acts and protects what it wants to do – and is set against a ruling that does not demand defunding, sanctioning or otherwise calling Israel to account in such a way.

If both UNRWA and Israel had been deprived of funds and resources, there might have been a justification for doing it. But doing it to UNRWA alone, before an investigation was even concluded, is unacceptable, according to Mr Ali.

This Writer would tend to agree.

So: would any of the parties to the ICJ’s ruling on Israel’s potential genocide, including/or South Africa, care to do the honours?

UK response to ICJ ruling: cut funding to agency helping Palestinian refugees

Rishi Sunak and Benjamin Netanyahu: is this the reason the UK responded to the ICJ’s ruling over genocide charges against Israel by suspending funding of aid to Palestinian refugees, rather than suspending arms exports to Israel?

The UK’s Tory government has responded to a ruling by the International Court of Justice that Israel is now on trial for genocide – by cutting aid to the UN agency that provides help for Palestinian refugees.

Is that not the correct way to view the cessation of funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, which works to provide health care, education and other humanitarian aid to Palestinians in Gaza, the West Bank, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria and employs around 13,000 people in Gaza?

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

The announcement follows allegations – from that bastion of dishonesty, the Israeli government – that people working for the UNRWA were involved in the October 7, 2023, attacks on Israel.

According to the BBC,

Mark Regev said there was information showing teachers working in UNRWA schools had “openly celebrated” the 7 October attacks.

He also referred to an Israeli hostage who, on her release, said she had been “held in the house of someone who worked for UNRWA”.

“They have a union which is controlled by Hamas and I think it’s high time that the UN investigated these links between UNRWA and Hamas,” he added.

This Writer would not trust that man to tell me the correct time.

But his claims have been supported by the fact that the UNRWA has launched an investigation into them – and sacked several staff before it has had a chance to report back.

The UK joins the US, Australia, Italy, Canada and Finland, who have already suspended funding to the agency.

The UNRWA’s former chief spokesperson, Christopher Gunness, said the suspension of funding was disproportionate and could only lead to further suffering:

“One million displaced people are currently taking refuge in and around UNRWA buildings. They are the ones who will suffer as a result of this decision,” said Mr Gunness, adding: “The curtailing of UNRWA services will also destabilise the region at a time when Western governments are trying to contain a regional conflagration.”

This is a view that is widely-held on the social media:

But what should the UK have done?

Well…

Would that not have been the more obvious choice?

Why do you think David Cameron lied over legal concerns about arms sales to Israel?

David Cameron: he has talked himself into a corner over arms sales to Israel. Would it have been better for him to have a rule that, if such a transaction could in any way possibly break International Humanitarian Law, it should not be approved?

The UK’s Foreign Secretary, David (Lord!) Cameron, seems to be trying to confuse us about his decision to allow arms sales to Israel after the Foreign Office raised concerns about the legality of the transations.

According to a government document filed in the High Court, defending against a challenge by legal and human rights groups that are trying to stop the UK selling arms to Israel for use in Gaza, said the Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office unit that assessed Israel’s commitment and capability to comply with international humanitarian law (IHL) raised concerns to Cameron in multiple reports between November 10 and December 8 about Israel’s compliance with the law.

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

The unit appeared satisfied on some counts, such as Israeli officials’ insistence that the Israeli military had incorporated Internation Humanitarian Law “into all aspects of military operations”.

But other points, including a lack of Israeli response about “the reasons for restricting the quantity of supplies of food, water, and medical supplies”, raised concerns.

The unit said it was possible that this was due to disagreement about what the law requires, rather than an intentional disregard of the law.

Cameron, on the other hand, told the parliamentary Foreign Affairs Committee that he could not “recall every bit of paper” put in front of him and it was not his job to make a “legal adjudication” when asked if government lawyers had advised him that Israel had breached the law.

But the document shows that the final decision of whether Israel was committed to complying with the law was left to Cameron.

So the decision on whether to sell Israel these arms, for use in a conflict that potentially breached International Humanitarian Law, was left to Cameron – and he went ahead with the sale.

Here’s a thought:

Wouldn’t it be better to have a rule that, if there is any doubt about the legality of such a transaction, it should be automatically disallowed – on a “better safe than sorry” basis?

After 5,000 days of Tory rule, they’ve increased YOUR national debt MASSIVELY

Where has all the money gone?

That’s the question from Carol Vorderman, and she’s echoing economist Gary Stevenson who has been saying much the same thing for many months now.

Here’s her analysis, as posted on ‘X’ (formerly Twitter):

As she demonstrates, David Cameron came into office claiming (wrongly) that the national debt of £770 billion and deficits run by Gordon Brown’s previous ‘New Labour’ administration were unsustainable and had to be brought down, for the good of us all.

“We’re all in it together,” remember?

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

Instead, he and his successors – Theresa May, Boris Johnson, Liz Truss and now Rishi Sunak – have spent public money at a record-breaking rate, increasing the debt to more than three times as much as in 2010.

Bear in mind that it had taken hundreds of years for the debt to reach £770 billion. The Tories then tripled it in just 13 years.

They have been spendthrifts on a scale never before seen in the UK.

And they have nothing to show for it.

The standard of living for the vast majority of people has plummeted.

Public services have been starved of resources and neglected.

The National Health Service has been starved of staff and hived off to private companies whose work is substandard and poor value for money.

The economy has stagnated and wages – apart from those paid to MPs and top executives – are now worth a fraction of what they were in 2010.

If the last nearly-14 years of Tory rule had been a business transaction – we had paid for them to provide a service – then we would be within our consumer right to demand our money back.

But it doesn’t work like that.

Government, it seems, is the greatest con trick of them all because we lose our money legally.

This is an election year, though. We have an opportunity to make a big change.

But the media are telling us the only choices are the Conservatives, who will break the national bank even more than they have done already, or Keir Starmer’s New New Labour, that is promising to do the same.

For all our sakes, we – the voters – have to change our thinking and make the change that the self-interested, snouts-in-the-trough political swine in both those parties can’t handle.

We have to get rid of them all and vote for somebody else.

Elections used to be about looking at what every candidate in your constituency was offering and voting for the one whose package most closely corresponded to what you thought you needed.

When did they start being about voting tribally for the team that told you they represented you when – if you actually bothered to check – they really didn’t?

When did we stop voting in our own interest and start voting in theirs?

If you vote for Rishi Sunak’s team this year; if you vote for Keir Starmer’s team this year; even if you vote for Ed Davey’s team this year, you will be voting to enrich the members of their parties and will achieve nothing for yourself or your family.

Carry on voting tribally for the same gangs and you will ensure that you, your children, and their children, are progressively impoverished and enslaved by the people who are recommending themselves to you now, for their own enrichment and self-aggrandizement.

That is their plan. And it has been working spectacularly well for the last 13 and a half years.

When are you going to break that pattern, stop harming yourself and do what needs to be done?

It’s time to change. Do it before it’s too late.

Cameron says Israeli government hasn’t shown intent to commit genocide. See him proved wrong

David Cameron: he’s made a big mistake, with an extravagant claim that he can’t support.

UK Foreign Secretary David (Lord!) Cameron told TV interviewer Trevor Phillips that Israel has not shown any intent to commit genocide, in support of the Tory government’s refusal to accept the case put forward by South Africa at the International Criminal Court.

This is a false claim.

There are numerous examples. It is bizarre and unrealistic for the Foreign Secretary to claim there are not, because it would indicate that he is unprofessional – he can’t do his job properly.

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

But – well, see for yourself. Here’s an ‘X’ thread with his denial and then numerous examples disproving it:

So, if Cameron and his prime minister, Rishi Sunak, have used this claim – that Israel has shown no intent to commit genocide – as even part of their justification for opposing South Africa’s genocide case against Israel, then they are mistaken and this statement…

“South Africa’s case is “completely unjustified and wrong.

“The UK government stands by Israel’s clear right to defend itself within the framework of international law,”

… is wrong.

First channel boat crossings of the year provide a message to remember

Apparently this is news:

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

Isn’t this the real message?

The enemy doesn’t arrive by boat; he arrives by limousine.

The message is that people seeking asylum from persecution (of whatever kind) in their own country are not enemies of the people of the UK.

The enemies – of all of us – are the people who tell both UK citizens and refugees coming here that the refugees are our enemies. And they drive around in Ministerial limousines.

Thus the headline “Sir Keir voted to ditch our alliance with the Saudis, which would have allowed Houthi rebels to wreak even more destruction… Starmer needs to tell us why on earth we should trust Labour with our security”. As usual, you have no need to read the supporting article, with the usual Bozo rambling stream of consciousness, as you’ve been told what to think.

But here’s a hint or two of Tedious Maximus in full-ish flow: “Well, the Houthis had it coming. We had no choice but to act … Of course, there will be qualms. People in Britain will be anxious for what follows. But the lesson is clear. You cannot turn your back on a region. You cannot just disengage from problems and hope that they will not affect you in the future”.

Like, oh I dunno, Afghanistan, perhaps? But do go on. “The spate of Houthi attacks on shipping, if it continues, has the potential to do incalculable damage to the world economy – and to the UK … There was … intensified pressure on the UK government to rescind the historic agreements between Britain and Saudi Arabia – signed under Margaret Thatcher – and stop the flow of arms and military support to Riyadh”. Getting to the point yet?

One evening, October 26, 2016, all five opposition parties voted to stop supporting the Saudis and to end the military relationship … Look at those MPs who voted in 2016 to axe the UK-Saudi relationship, and let the Houthis get on with it. There’s Yvette Cooper, and Emily Thornberry, and oh yes, of course, there’s the member for Holborn and St Pancras, Sir Keir Starmer”.

Nearly there. “He was totally wrong. He was voting against the interests of the UK’s long-term partners, and effectively in favour of the Houthis … He should explain. He should also explain why on earth we should trust Labour with our security”. Boris Johnson calls security risk on someone else. Ri-i-i-ight.

But Keir Starmer supported the airstrikes on the Houthi. That fact alone undermines Johnson’s entire argument. And then we have to consider Johnson’s own record:

Here’s the Guardianfrom 2019: “A trip Boris Johnson made to Italy for a party held by a billionaire socialite ended with the then foreign secretary at an airport ‘looking like he had slept in his clothes’, struggling to walk in a straight line and telling other passengers he had had a heavy night”.

And where had Bozo been, allegedly without his security detail? Palazzo Terranova, owned by Yevgeny Lebedev, son of a “former” KGB officer. Except that you never leave the KGB, or its successor agency, the FSB. As John Sweeney spelt it out in a video [HERE], UK security agencies were not happy.

So Boris Johnson, because of his private life, was a security risk. And may still be one:

Pot, kettle, black? No – it’s worse than that, because Boris Johnson has held a position of power in the UK and may have used it to benefit his Russian friends, as far as we know.

He’s in no position to warn of what might happen if the UK electorate forget Starmer’s support of genocide (which Johnson also, tacitly, supports by supporting the airstrikes against Yemen). He has already been in a position to do what he’s warning Starmer may.
