The Groupthink Pandemic

Groupthink is all around us. Decision-making in government, in the media and at work. It’s slowly killing the world.

In the background of the most important events, the Covid-19 response and increasing tension and conflict in the world, it might be worth looking through some of this in a bit more detail.

I’ve experienced groupthink working for large organisations, most notably in my last job. We were tasked with investigating and solving complex problems. Some technical expertise helped but was not crucial to the role.

Critical thinking and balancing evidence and differing viewpoints was key.

Yet the organisation decided that this was no longer required and changed the whole operating model to a one-size fits all type of call-centre. This new high-risk approach was recommended to us by the outside consultants Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC) who were clueless about our business.

Those of us who were experienced in the role argued that the model wouldn’t work. But the organisation ploughed on regardless. It was obvious from day one that the financials didn’t stack up which they tried to deny and later concealed.

The executive largely ignored our concerns to start but then paid limited lip-service when the wheels started to come off. Anyway, in the end they offered us redundancy while employing fresh university graduates to replace us. As far as I know the place is still in denial and heading down the pan. … Continue reading >>>

Democracy Murdered In France

I’m hearing very disturbing news from the French regional elections, predicting that the Front National, comfortable winners in last week’s first round of regional elections, hasve been routed in all regions.

Wayback Machine Latest Victim Of Deep State / Big Tech Censorship

 

In what is turning out to be something of a latter-day dot com bust, many small to medium-sized tech startups are teetering on the edge of oblivion as the deliberate economic shutdown eats away at their capitalization and opens the door for the biggest fish in the tech space and others to pick the ripest fruit from the tech start up tree.

As opposed to the original, this start up bust is accompanied by a very precise view of market opportunities for interested buyers and investors, brought on by an equally deliberate reshaping of workplace conditions and societal interactions which are driving companies like Microsoft to “aggregate capabilities” in “cloud computing, collaboration, access management, and other business continuity tools that saw a surge in demand during regional lockdowns.”

The ride-share behemoth, Uber, for example, is reportedly in talks to acquire Grubhub and expand its food-delivery operations, while Microsoft just completed its purchase of robotic automation company, Softomotive. One global research and advisory firm that focuses on IT and finance has even put out a guide “on how tech startups can best prepare for being acquired by a larger company,” revealing that just 13 companies accounted for a full 60 percent of the $150 billion raised by tech startups between March and April.

Signs that yet another massive wave of consolidation in the technology sector is on the horizon and is already raising concerns throughout the industry, but the fact that it is occurring in tandem with a larger push by outfits like Twitter, Facebook and other huge tech players to stifle freedom of online expression and association should make us pay closer attention to the dynamics at play.

Censorship creep

Under the guise of facilitating conversation, Twitter unveiled changes to the reply feature that ostensibly gives users more control, but in reality, it broadens the ability to censor content. The new format, still in testing mode, will allow users to select who can and cannot reply to their tweets. This, of course, presents a serious problem from the vantage point of free flowing interaction and gives even more power to the most popular accounts to stifle undesirable feedback, leaving their viewpoints publicly unchallenged.

Another seemingly innocuous development in the last few days was the announcement made by popular podcaster Joe Rogan on his move to Spotify. The comedian and UFC commentator’s immensely popular podcast has been freely available on YouTube and other platforms since its inception, but his multi-million-dollar exclusive licensing deal with the music platform will further cloister content behind a single outfit and likely diminish its reach and propagation.

Perhaps the most concerning, however, are the changes taking place at one of the most important research tools on the Internet and, up to now, a venerable tool for online transparency: The Wayback Machine.

Content that the elite find inconvenient is disappeared from the Wayback Machine.  In the search results you can sometimes see a forest of spikes over the time line of WM sampling/preservation yet when you go to a particular instance of S/P you see a blank video screen with a message something like “We don’t have a stored instance of this item.”

Sure.  WM sampled and preserved it like crazy as its timeline of “hit” shows but somehow nothing got saved.  I believe that.

Government does nothing about tech giant censorship because it’s a way for the government to avoid the problems with the First Amendment.  Get a “private” entity (with government contracts reaching to the heavens) to destroy free speech and the government is good to go.  Honest opinion, analysis and speculation based on what little “secret” info is made available — necessitating speculation let it be said — becomes “disinformation,” as though adults are incapable of sniffing out the garbage.

The UK and the US have their “Integrity Initiative,” 77th Brigade, the BBC, White Helmets, the VOA, Chemonics, Crowdstrike, Cambridge Analytica, Avaaz, Purpose, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Dept. of State, the Atlantic Council, Human Rights Watch, the Washington Institute for the Near East Policy, the NYT, Wapo, CNN, USAID, Bell Pottinger, the OPCW, and the Democrat and Republican parties spew disinformation by the trainload but watch out for Joe Schmidlap in Dubuque, y’all.  A scheming disinfo artiste who has the Russian Embassy on speed dial.

We can spend future decades tinkering at the edges of what has given us this deep state swamp over past decades.

Or, we can focus on what has enabled the elite swamp to be seeded in our legal and financial systems; and, ultimately, to get itself declared equivalent to a Natural Person under Law, although it was only Property; and, to make its Money more powerful that Human Votes within our legislatures; and, ultimately, to neuter our democratic constitution; all of which, has rendered us nations of disenfranchised paupers standing at the edge of slaverry.

We need to take a hatchet and a blow torch to Citizens Unitedll the rest of these crypto – Marxist “defenders od democracy,” and, change radically the existing legal definitions of Corporate Standing.

That hatchet and that blow torch must come in the form of constitutional laws that state explicitly that a Corporation is “Property”; and, is, explicitly, NOT a “Person”; and, that a Corporation is explicitly, not equivalent, or comparable, to living, voting itizens, who are always Sovereign and Supreme within American Constitutional Jurisdiction.

Secondly, that Constitutional amendment must state explicitly that no Corporation shall have legal standing to be present in our legislatures for the making of NEW Law, unless summoned by the legislature; but, shall have full legal standing to be present within any and all Administrative Forums for the purpose of representing Corporate Interests under EXISTING Law.

Thirdly, these laws must state explicitly that corporate crimes that transgress upon; and impair legally established rights and liberties shall NOT be overruled by corporate policy; but, shall be punished by revocation of corporate licence.

If at any time over the past four decades, lawmakers had found the intellectual and moral courage to impose such laws and had appointed suitably qualified and experienced people to oversee the policing of Big Tech companies, we would not today have vertically integrated corporate monopolies involved in every aspect of our economies and societies, Corporate Lobbyists would NOT today influence every significant entity of national life and, we would not be disenfranchines by misinformation, content filtering and targeted ads. We would all have a reasonable chance of informing ourselves of what is going on in the world.

Without those changes to the way our nations are governed, made necessary by the planned shifting of the the major way we communicate information from print and broadcast news to The Internet, a medium that is so friendly to censorship and control of information it might have been designed with that purpose in mind, anything that our present leadership  achieves today to submit Corporate Power to the will of voters will be annulled almost immediately by changes to the algorithms.

Make no Mistake, this narrative might sound esoteric, or tangential; but, the people behind the Corporate Monopoly Power, that only recently gave us Citizens United, had the Moral and Intellectual wherewithal to spend the last hundred and fifty years working to put Citizens United in Place.

We must now know what we must do to reverse it; or, in a hundred and fifty years our Constitutional Rights will not even be a reference in any future version of The Way Back Machine.

Germany: Populist AfD calls for aid for local breweries and inns

Germany’s Eurosceptic Alternative for Germany (AfD) party is calling for the government to provide aid to the country’s local breweries and inns, many of which are threatened with disaster because of the ongoing lockdown in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown.

Germany, which has a long brewing tradition, is home to many breweries, some of which have been in existence for centuries. And although there had been a boom in small breweries in recent years due to the explosive popularity of craft beers around the world, the sudden shock of a long-term lockdown is now threatening their very existence, as previously reported by Voice of Europe. Pubs and restaurants have all been closed, public events where beer is served have been cancelled, and exports have decreased as a result of border closings.

In response, the AfD is saying that the government must provide financial aid to breweries and inns that does not need to be repaid. “Loans and deferrals do not help them,” Stephan Protschka, an AfD MP from Bavaria, said in a report by Junge Freiheit …. Continue reading >>>

The flu vaccine is a spectacular failure

As part of The Daily Stirrer’s commitment to stirring things up for the environment, we feel obliged to question the 2sacred cow” narratives of the establisment, particularly those which are presented as “for the public good,” but which on closer examination are for the good of corporate profits and the increase of political control over our daily lives. One of these narratives in recent years has been the promotion of vaccines, particularly those of dubious value such as the ‘flu vaccine, which people of a certain age and above are urged to get each year.

The ‘flu vaccine is big business for the pharmaceutical companies that make vaccines, but how effective is it?

from NewsTarget, 03 March 2020

We’re often bombarded with “helpful” reminders to get our flu vaccines as winter rolls around, but when you take a closer look at the medical literature, there’s a lot about the shot that simply doesn’t add up. There are really two main qualities that you’d expect a vaccine that is pushed on the masses to possess: safety and efficacy. Unfortunately, the flu vaccine fails on both counts.

There’s a huge body of evidence showing just how ineffective the flu vaccine is and how easily its effectiveness can drop depending on personal factors. The CDC can never really say just how well a particular season’s flu vaccine will work as it must be created well ahead of the flu season, and there’s no way of knowing which strains will dominate in a particular year – they can only guess. Then, they point out that past seasons have seen efficacies in the range of 40 to 60 percent, as if that’s somehow something to brag about!

And when you look at particular years or groups of people alone, it fares far worse, with the overall effectiveness of 2018-2019 vaccine being just 29 percent across all the various age groups and flu viruses. This is according to information compiled by Children’s Health Defense.

In February of 2019, flu vaccines were actually ineffective 91 percent of the time. And that upper efficacy of the range the CDC touts of 60 percent has only been reached once in the last 15 years. Some years have seen failure rates of as high as 90 percent, which is what happened in 2004-2005.

German Region Thuringia Election Result Heralds The Collapse Of Germany

We have reported the growing likelyhood of an economic and social collapse in Germany both here and in our Daily Stirrer pages, but nothing has pointed towards that inevitable conclusion to Merkel’s mess and the accompanying disintegration of the European Union more strongly than the results of last weekends regional electioons for the state government of  Thuringia, a province in the north east of the country.

The near collapse of the two centrist parties, Angela Merkel’s CDU and the Social Democrats (SPD), which for decades dominated German politics, looks like a omen of what lies ahead in German politics and EU politics.

#

A majority in Thuringia, ruled by the CDU since the early 1990’s until 2014 when Die Linke took over with the Social Democrats and the Greens, just voted against the centrist, Merkelist, grand coalition of standing for nothing but globalism and tighter EU integration.

Die Linke (a coalition of hard left Marxists and other left of centre extremists,) and Alternative for Germany (AfD) secured more than 54% of the total vote. Die Linke, the remnant of the East German Communist Party, and AfD, the new face of Eurosceptic nationalism, anti-immigration and fiscally responsible Germans, took first and second place ahead of Merkel’s CDU.

(source Wikipedia via  Thüringer Landesamt für Statistik – Thuringer statistics office)

Whereas in 2014, Die Linke formed a government with the SPD and the Greens, today they cannot, the grouping falls 4 seats short of a majority, and the Greens barely beat the 5% threshold for representation.  Had they not the coalition calculus would be unsolvable.

Merkel and the CDU, though they beat old rivals the SDP by a big margin will exclude themselves from the state government as the Europhile leadership categorically refuse to make a deal with AfD in any capacity, the sticking point being Merkel’s blinkered committent to her open doors immigration policy which has been the cause of so many of the country’;s social and economic problems.  It looks as if Turingia will be without an effective government for some time. The situation is just as bad in Brandenburg which voted in September and where the establishment has effectively blocked a coalition that contains the anti – EU Alternatif fur Deutschland.

This is becoming a trend in the EU where Spain, Belgium, Portugal and Italy are without effective governments because of undemocratic meddling in election results by Brussels.

In both German states, complex coalitions of incompatible parties will be needed the formation of any government and with at least four parties involved, to cobble together a majority on any controversial issue will be almost impossible because the only thing they agree on  is their refusal to collaborate with with AfD.  Lower Saxony will likely retain its current coalition between Merkel’s CDU, the SPD and the Greens after their election last month, although the demands of the Greens as their price for joining such a coalition, environmentalist reforms that will be ruinous for the local economy, are likely to be unacceptable to CDU and SDP representatives. .

These, and other recent regional election results in Germany all highlight the direction the country’s voters are moving, away from Brussels and Euro – Federalism and towards nationalism and a reclamation of national sovereignty. Voters are also repulsed by the mainstream party’s making impossible promises to everyone and reneging on them in order to advance “the European project,” by transforming the 27 member states into a federal republic, and against the Islamification of German society which is Merkel’s legacy.  As Alexander Mercouris of The Duran pointed out the other day, Merkel’s modus operandi is to hold the line on the status quo regardless of the social mayhem her policies are creating around her.

That has created a a situation where an illusion of stability and control is projected on the surface on the surface while is teetering on collapse with every new social development or item of economic news.

For years now, since the immigration crisis broke, the Hausfrau Volksfuhrer has been trying to keep the European project moving towards “ever closer integration” while ignoring domestic problems or pretending all bad news is just a “far right conspiracy theory.”  But in trying to keep things as they are in the world outside Germany, she’s let allowed Germany’s internal problems to run out of control.

Germany’s state elections this autumn in Germany have been not only been a a disaster for Merkel, they have also encouraged an upsurge in opposition to the EU central bureaucracy throughout Europe. Member states know that without German money propping up the EU, the organisation cannot survive. And with the UK, the second largest net contributor to EU funds after Germany about to leave, the burden has become unsupportable for the faltering German economy. And that is making thevpolitical situation even more unstable.

Look back to the aftermath of the 2017 national election and how hard it was for Merkel to put a ruling coalition together, leaving the EU’s most economically powerful member state without an effective government for over six months.  Some commentators predicted the end of Merkelism but somehow Merkel survived at the head of a fragile and unconvincing coalition The problems she’s facing now were just as acute then. but she chose to paper them over with yet another disastrous coalition with the Social Democrats and CSU.

What’s clear is that political opinions about the future of Germany are hardening away from the consensus politics Merkel’s Party and the SDP have been selling in fact the collapse of the SDP, once the default party of government is even more astounding than the decline of Merkel’s CDU.

The event most likely to trigger the collapse and fragmentation of Germany will be the failure of Deutschebank, the financial giant that, saddled with mountains of debt run up by the EU’s basket case economies, has been effectively insolvent for some time. There’s nothing quite as potent in destroying confidence than the failure of a major financial institutions, and in this case, when (not if,) the bank fails, the figer of blame will be pointed at the globalist government in Berlin.

Wetherspoons Boss Slams Labour MP In Bad Tempered Clash

 


Tim Martin (right) looks terrified by the face Labour MP Jess Phillips plans to use as her sdecret weapon in the Miss Uglyverse pageant.

The Wetherspoons pub chain owner Tim Martin was involved in an incendiary exchage with economically and politically illiterate, unfuckable feminist gobshite Jess Phillips, the Labour MP for some immigrant – laden inner city shithole in the midlands on the BBC’s Politics Live today.

In a fiery clash with the far left Labour MP, Martin said he remained confident a no deal would give a massive boost for the UK economy, including the chance for Britons to pocket an extra £600 if no withdrawal bill is paid to the . He argued that leaving the bloc without a new arrangement would allow Britain to get rid of import tariffs, transforming the country into a “free trading nation.”

Speaking on BBC Politics Live, the pub chain boss said: “I think we’d be better off with no deal. As soon as you start off on day one having to pay out a bill of £40billion – that’s £600 per person, £60million for Liz and Jess’ constituencies – it’s not a good deal.

“We’d be £40billion better off, you can abolish tariffs which apply on over 12,000 products, things that people buy every day in the shops. You can regain control of fishing and you can encourage foreign businesses to invest here because you can be a free trading nation.”

But Mr Martin’s claims were not met with the approval of Labour MP Jess Phillips, a supporter of uncontrolled immigration and just about every other economically and socially damaging policy put forward by the university brainwashed idiots of Labour’s Maoist fringe,  who interrupted him as he made an argument against “attaching ourselves” to EU trading policies.

Rolling her eyes, Ms Phillips joined in saying: “Attaching ourselves to the biggest market in the world would be a folly. Honestly. I was being sarcastic.” Like most Labour MPs, Phillips is too stupid to understand the EU is not a market, it is 27 separate markets, many of them barely significant in global economic terms, and with which Britain has an enormous trade deficit.

Mr Martin defended his argument, agreeing that it would be a folly for Britain to remain too commercially close to Brussels “if you lose your democracy as a result.”  He is of course right, the anti democratic nature of the EU is documented in Yanis Varoufakis’ book “Adults In The Room – My Struggle With Europe’s Deep Establishment” in which the former Finance Minister of Greece describes how he, on behalf of his country, tried to take on the EU establishment, with disastrous results as we have all witnessed over the past few years.

Britain, the fifth largest economy in the world and a nation of over sixty million people, is a somewhat tougher target for the bullies of Brussels, even under the current government under Theresa the Appeaser, it would be impossible to crush us as little Greece, along with Ireland, Portugal and Cyprus have been crushed by Brussels bullies. In fact, once free of the EU’s suffocating bureaucracy and with a half decent leader in place, we would be free to trade with emerging economies like India, Nigeria, Brazil and Indonesia, as well as increasing our trade with the USA, Japan, Russia, Canada and Australia.

And those EU nations which do trade with us, notably Germany, France, Italy, spain and Poland don’t want to lose their British market. Brussels is obsessed with creating a European political superstate, EU members just want to trade freely.

Big Brands, Big Meetings, Big Summits, but Modern Slavery Still Problem for UK

It’s rather ironic that while british lefties and liberals agonise over the use of several kinds of slave labour in the clothing and electronics sweatshops of South-east Asia and Africa, their American counterparts are still grizzling over a form of slavery that was abolished in their country 150 years ago, constantly whining about how people whose grand – parent were not born when the slaves were freed are still suffering because of the Atlantic slave trade, but happy (and some seem ecstatic but maybe that’s the drugs,) to walk around wearing their Adidas or Nike trainers, clothes from Primark or H&M, or their Apple iPhones or iPads, or Samsung Galaxies. The case is that anything you have which is made in China, India, Bangla Desh, Indonesia, Thailand, Nigerea, Ghana or any other third world nation that manufactures for the global brands propable uses indentured (i.e. slave) labour in some stages of the production chain.

Online fashion giant Asos hosted an event in Mauritius this month to discuss issues surrounding modern slavery in the retail industry, meanwhile the UK is holding a Modern Slavery Summit to see how law enforcement agencies can prosecute more perpetrators of human trafficking. Will thins help? Well judge for yourselves but who can forget the story of the Romanian girl sold to a crime network that trafficked girls to western Europe to work as prostitutes. She was free by do-gooderfuckers in the UK, only to be shipped back to Romania where the authorities handed her back to her father … who immediately sold her back to the traffickers. The stotu came to light when she was freed a second time. but back to the most notoriously reliant on slave labour, the fashion industry.

Brand executives from Adidas, Puma, zLabels, Woolworths and Whistles which all manufacture goods in Mauritius, met anti-slavery lobby groups including the International Labour Organization, the Ethical Trading Initiative and Anti Slavery International and agreed that ‘something needed to be done. So they decided to have a few more meetings. Asos was the first online fashion business to sign up to the Global Framework agreement which aims to improve working conditions for 50 million people, making a public commitment to eradicate slavery from its supply chains but is rather vaguer about how it will achieve its aims.

Valter Sanches, General Secretary of IndustriALL, a federation of trade unions representing 70 milion people globally, said, “This agreement provides mechanisms and standards to empower our unions to safeguard workers’ rights across ASOS’ global supply chain. The GFA deepens our relationship with ASOS, and is an important step for supply chain industrial labour relations.”ASOS has long been committed to protecting the human rights of those who work in its
supply chainvia a dedicated Ethical Trade programme, which ensures sourcing practices are continually reviewed and improved, ASOS launched its first Modern Slavery Statement in 2017.

It’s all good PR to be sure, but while the big brands will use it to polish their image, will it actually make any difference in the sweat shops of the third world.?

US States back Laws Gagging Opposition To GM Crops.

With little notice, more than two dozen state U.S.  legislatures have passed corporate – friendly “seed-preemption laws” designed to block counties and cities from adopting their own rules on the use of seeds, including bans on GMOs. Opponents say that there’s nothing more fundamental than a seed, and that now, in many parts of the country, decisions about what can be grown have been taken out of local control and put solely in the hands of the state.

Critics of the GM seed lobby say this move has come as a result of unethical activity by lobbyists employed by a monopolistic cartel of biotech giants whose influence over agricultural policy in the US government is definitely not in the public interest

“This bill should be viewed for what it is — a gag order on public debate,”  Kristina Hubbard, director of advocacy and communications at the Organic Seed Alliance, a national advocacy group, and a resident of Montana said. Montana, along with Texas, Oregon, Californisa and Colorado and many other states passed a seed-preemption bill this year, thus removing from voters the  right to decide what kind of food will be sold in shops they use, and handing it to politicians and indirectly to the corporate lobbyists who bribe them.

“This thinly disguised attack on local democracy can be easily traced to out-of-state, corporate interests that want to quash local autonomy,” Hubbard added

Seed-preemption laws are part of a legislative campaign by industrial agriculture (Big Food), including ag-gag laws passed in several states that legally prohibit outsiders from photographing farms, and “right-to-farm” laws that make it easier to snuff out complaints about animal welfare, and of course the usual demands from corporate business, unthinkingly backed by the university brainfucked humandroids who call themselves the left. The seed laws, critics say, are a related thrust meant to protect the interests of agro-chemical companies, by banning laws which require foods containing material from GM crops to be clearly labelled, so depriving consumers of a choice about whether they eat this shite or not.

Foods containing GM matter are currently banned in the European Union, and though the EU bureaucracy and some national governments have tried to overturn this, strength of public opinion has blocked any change. Politicians, academics and media luvvies have as usual described the mass opposition as being due to the “scientific ignorance of the masses,” who believe eating GM foods will lead to babies being born with two heads.  It is such hubris that has led the complete breakdown of trust between the general population and the establishment. Few people believe eating GM food will be harmful in the short term, but having already seen the effects in increased costs and reduced quality of modern intensive farming techniques, they are very suspicious of any move to hand control of the food supply to global corporations. The derailment of Barack Obama’s two “free trade” policies, TPP and TTIP

Some politicians in the U.S.A. and European Union have even talked of banning the planting of natural seed and only allowing food crops to be grown from GM seed. This would of course hand control of the food supply for humans and animals to a small group of corporate giants whose track records on ethical issues are very dubious. but it gets worse.

Nearly every seed-preemption law so far enacted in the USA borrows language from a 2013 model bill drafted by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). The council is “a pay-to-play operation where corporations buy a seat and a vote on ‘task forces’ to advance their legislative wish lists,” essentially “voting as equals” with state legislators on bills, according to The Center for Media and Democracy. ALEC’s corporate members include the Koch brothers as well as some of the largest seed-chemical companies — Monsanto, Bayer, and DuPont — which want to make sure GMO bans, like those enacted in Jackson County, Oregon, and Boulder County, Colorado, don’t become a trend.

 In Oregon, the bill blocking anti – GM laws was greenlighted in 2014 after Monsanto and Syngenta spent nearly $500,000 fighting a GMO ban in Jackson County. Monsanto, Dow AgroSciences, and Syngenta spent more than $6.9 million opposing anti-GMO rules in three Hawaiian counties, and thousands more in campaign donations. (These companies are also involved in mergers that, if approved, would create three seed-agrochemical giants.) Now ask yourselves this question: ‘If GM biotech produce was so good, why would the corporations that profit from it have to work so hard to overcome opposition?’

Corrupt Labour Politician Baroness Scotland To Give Anti – corruption Lecture.

The latest post in our occasional series titled You Couldn’t Make It Up

Most gobsmacking news today from the anti – establishment news desk, a bunch of hypocritical left wing turds calling themselves  Transparency International have chosen as the best person to deliver their “Annual Anti-Corruption Lecture” next week, none other than the bung seeking, expenses fiddling, bent contract awarding Labour peer, Baroness Scotland will be giving the talk, discussing how important it is “to champion integrity, increase public awareness on the adverse impact of corruption, and promote appreciation of how important it is that the UK acknowledges the pressing need to tackle corruption within its own borders”.

Transparency International admit it’s a slightly odd choice given the crook and liar Baroness Scotland has been mired in a sleaze scandal of her own, including claiming £307 expenses for a toilet seat and was outed by Guido Fawkes blog as having claimed MP’s educational allowance to cover school fees for her grown up children.. They say:

“We are aware that since then a number of allegations have been made against Baroness Scotland and our Annual Lecture will provide the ideal opportunity for her to respond directly to those claims, as well as allowing members of the public and press to raise any questions they may wish to ask.”

Other scandals involving Baroness Scotland include abuses of her office when she was attorney General and reveal how she waived procurement practices in order to award a £90,000 ‘crony capitalism’ contract to a close friend and associate. Just days after taking office, Scotland instructed staff to hire her fellow Labour peer Lord Patel as a consultant to produce a review of the department.

Scotland and Patel have been friends for years and she has previously described him as her “partner in crime”. The leaked memo below (h/t Guido Fawkes), an makes clear the arrangement is at the behest of Scotland, the oficial who drafted it uses the phrase “following your instructions”  to cover his own arse and requires them to “seek a waiver from the Secretariat’s preferred procurement practices”. The job was not advertised to other bidders, the recruitment process was waived so it could be given to her “partner in crime”.

patel1

The contract is with Patel’s company KYA Global. Its only directors are Patel and his wife – the company appears to have no website or online or physical presence. The sums of money are huge – the company was paid £30,000-a-month out of the public purse. The contract was signed by Baroness Scotland herself.

It is utterly astounding, even in the weird and whack world of corrupt, dishonest, money grubbing, expenses troughing, see-their-sons-and-daughters-to-anyone  Labour politicians that such a blatantly corrput individual should be asked to deliver an anti corruption lecture. Being a greedy, corrupt, lying, palm greasing, easily bribed hypocrite is an essential qualification for those who want to get on in left wing politics.

TTIP on the Brink of Failure: EU ‘Frustrated’ By US Refusal To Accept Conditions It Insists Europe Must Accept

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), which has been pushed by the Obama Administration and the European Union’s ruling bureaucratic dictatorship, looks increasingly close to being abandoned as public opposition to it mounts in both Europe and the USA.. The EU negotiators are frustrated by American intransigence in refusing to grant the EU access to US markets, while demanding the removal of all obstacles of all obstacles to American goods being dumped in European markets. It is now becoming apparent that the potential deal should always have been a non starter, as the business culture of European countries and the US have little in common, German business newspaper Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten (DWN) wrote.

Referring to the website EUobserver, the newspaper noted that EU negotiators have become frustrated about the deal and don’t believe in the success of the TTIP anymore.

The main problem is fundamentally different visions of the US and the EU about the nature of the agreement.

“The US is pressuring the EU to roll back environmental and health standards as part of a free trade deal,” EU observer wrote. “The US also wants to keep the current arbitration system that allows corporations to sue governments for perceived loss of profits.”

According to DWN, the US is playing hard, making “unacceptable” demands and trying to bully EU negotiators. US attempts to talk up the non existent threat to the EU from Russia should the deal fail have angers the EU side and contributed to growing “frustration among Member States”. Russia will be very happy to see the deal fail as that would open the way for closer economic ties between the EU and the Russian Federation.

Several clauses in TTIP have sparked controversy as critics fear they will allow global orporations to overturn national laws (as has happened in Canada which signed a similar  trade treaty with the US some years ago.) These fears are exacerbated by secrecy surrounding the negotiations and the power they could give to international corporations at the expense of small and medium-sized businesses.
