US Congress threatens to pull out of #freetrade deal if UK undermines #GoodFridayAgreement

This is awkward for Boris Johnson. The US Congress – or at least members of it – is threatening to withdraw from any free trade deal with the UK if Boris Johnson’s Internal Market Bill undermines the Good Friday Agreement that brought peace to Northern Ireland. This is a body blow to Johnson, who has claimed that the Bill is vitally important even though it very clearly breaks international law by shattering treaty agreements with the EU and in NI. According to the BBC: US Speaker Nancy Pelosi last week…

Supine Sunak set to axe ‘Facebook tax’ because he’s scared of big, nasty Donald Trump

Could there be a more blatant display of the UK’s newfound powerLESSness in the world? The UK imposed a tax on tech companies like Facebook last year, expecting to bring in £500 million per year from firms that make more than £25 million each and would otherwise pay very little indeed. But now Rishi Sunak is reportedly planning to axe it, in the hope that doing so will encourage Donald Trump not to insist on sending chlorinated chicken to the UK. Sunak doesn’t even have the bargaining power to say he’ll do…

Nurses excluded from public sector pay rise – because of impending NHS sell-off?

The Tories have denied nurses a pay rise that they have granted to other public sector workers including teachers and doctors. It seems that, while these other professions are to get a raise “recognising their efforts on the frontline during the battle against COVID-19”, nurses – after many of their colleagues died on the Covid-19 “frontline” – are to be ignored. The Tories say nurses are already benefiting from a series of pay hikes imposed in 2017 – but nursing representatives say this is blurring the line between professional progression and…

Here’s how the Tories reneged on their promises to protect ‘our’ NHS

This Site has already mentioned the Tory NHS betrayal so let’s go over the details. First thing to bear in mind is that when a Tory refers to “our” NHS, they mean their NHS. They consider it to be their property, to dispose of it as they please. And yesterday evening it became clear that despite all protestations to the contrary, they intend to hand it over to US corporations as part of a post-Brexit trade deal that will kill free healthcare in the United Kingdom. In response to a Trade…

Tory treachery: these are just TODAY’S reasons to regret voting ‘Conservative’

Anybody who voted ‘Conservative’ last December in the belief that they would be better-off must be really kicking themselves now. Today we have learned that the Tories took money from Russians and then looked the other way while Russia interfered with our general elections – and possibly the Brexit referendum. The arrogant Tories have said they won’t even bother with a retrospective investigation of what happened (in case it incriminates them, perhaps). Within the last 24 hours, the Tories voted to ensure that the National Health Service will be part…

Website showing Israelis teaching the choke hold that killed George Floyd is changed to remove evidence. Why?

Doesn’t this strike you as odd? Late last month, Keir Starmer sacked Rebecca Long-Bailey as shadow Education Secretary after she tweeted a link to an interview with actor Maxine Peake which he claimed featured an “anti-Semitic conspiracy theory”. It seems the Labour leader believes it is anti-Semitic to state that Israeli military/police personnel taught members of the US police the choke hold that was misused to kill George Floyd, triggering a wave of protest across the world. Last week, This Site found and published details of an organisation, run by…

Video evidence shows Israelis teaching the choke hold that killed George Floyd

This is awkward – for everybody like Keir Starmer who insisted that it was anti-Semitic to claim that members of the Israeli police/military taught US police the choke hold that killed George Floyd. The image above is from a promotional video by an organisation calling itself Israeli Tactical. This firm has been providing training in the United States since at least 2013, when its Twitter account was set up by one Tomer Israeli who, according to Israeli Tactical’s website, is “A veteran captain of the Israeli Defense Forces with over…

How many scandals can Keir Starmer hide with his sacking of Rebecca Long-Bailey?

  Quite a few, it seems. Let’s start with the biggie: Israel is due to launch a major invasion of Palestinian territory next week, targeting in particular areas containing the aquifers that make life possible in these parched places. It may just be coincidence or the sublime consequence of divine providence but the parts of "Judea and Samaria" (sic) that the Israelis intend to annex control the aquifers in this desperately water stressed region. — JewishVoiceForLabour (@JVoiceLabour) June 26, 2020 Starmer’s sacking of RLB is a warning to Labour Party…

Long-Bailey’s sacking tells us all we need to know about Keir ‘double-standard’ Starmer and his racist Labour Party

This is the end of the Labour Party as an inclusive, anti-racist organisation. Keir Starmer has sacked Rebecca Long-Bailey from the Shadow Cabinet after she retweeted a link to an Independent interview with one of her constituents, the actor Maxine Peake. Starmer’s excuse is that Ms Peake’s article includes an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory. He is lying in one of the most disgusting ways possible. Here’s the passage in Ms Peake’s interview that has caused the offence: “Systemic racism is a global issue,” she adds. “The tactics used by the police in America,…
