UK court blocks class action law suit against Google

The UK High Court on Monday ruled against a bid by a users group to sue Google for allegedly collecting sensitive data from 4.4 million iPhone users in England and Wales. The High Court judgement stated, “there is no dispute that it is arguable that Google’s alleged role in the collection, collation, and use of data obtained via the Safari Workaround was wrongful, and a breach of duty.”

Justice Mark Warby, presiding, said it had been blocked because claims that people had suffered material damages were not supported by the facts, as well as the impossibility of calculating the number of iPhone users affected. The collection of data was “wrongful and a breach of duty,” he said, but ruled that there was insufficient evidence “damages” had been incurred to allow the law suit to go ahead. The Judge has a point, but we should ask now, why is the UK government through its communications regulator OFCOM not prosecuting Google on behalf of the public, when it is blatantly obvious these data pirates violated about a million proivacy and data protection laws.

The legal challenge was instigated by a group calling itself Google You Owe Us, and was a representative action — a claim brought by an individual on behalf of a group of people. It alleged that Google, a unit of the US tech company Alphabet, had bypassed privacy settings oniPhones (not difficult, Apple are not the technology gods they sell themselves as,) between August 2011 and February 2012 to collect data for sale to advertisers for the purpose of targeting internet users with advertising matter based on their internet browsing habits. It launched legal action last November.

Richard Lloyd, leader of the users’ group Google You Owe Us, called the decision “extremely disappointing” and said there were plans to appeal. “Today’s judgement effectively leaves millions of people without any practical way to seek redress and compensation when their personal data has been misused,” he said.

“The privacy and security of our users is extremely important to us. This claim is without merit, and we’re pleased the Court has dismissed it,” a Google spokesperson said. Well they would, wouldn’t they?

Monsanto Slammed With $289 Million Verdict In Historic ‘RoundUp’ Cancer Lawsuit

In a case that could halt the development of GM crops around the world, and thus the push by a few global corporations to gain control of the food supply, a court San Francisco this week awarded $289 million in damages to a former school groundskeeper, Dewayne Johnson, whose lawyers claimed Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller gave him terminal cancer. The award consists of $40 million in compensatory damages and $250 million in punitive damages.

Johnson’s trial was fast-tracked due to the severe state of his non-Hodgkins lymphoma, a cancer of the lymph system he says was triggered by Roundup and Ranger Pro, a similar glyphosate based herbicide that he was a=obliged by his job to use up to 30 times per year. His doctors didn’t think he’d live to live to see the verdict.

Johnson told the court that he had been involved in two accidents during his work in which he was soaked with the herbicide. The first of these occurred in 2012. Two years later, the 46-year-old father of two was diagnosed with lymphoma – which has since covered as much as 80% of his body in lesions.

Monsanto says it will appeal the verdict. 

“Today’s decision does not change the fact that more than 800 scientific studies and reviews — and conclusions by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. National Institutes of Health and regulatory authorities around the world — support the fact that glyphosate does not cause cancer, and did not cause Mr. Johnson’s cancer,” Monsanto Vice President Scott Partridge said in a statement.

Monsanto is now a subsidiary of Germany’s Bayer AG, which closed on its $66 billion purchase of the agrochemical company in June.

On Tuesday, Johnson’s attorney Brent Wisner urged jurors to hold Monsanto liable and slap them with a verdict that would “actually change the world” – after arguing that Monsanto knew about glyphosate’s risks of cancer, but decided to ignore and bury the information.
According to a report in The Guardian, Johnson’s lawsuit against is the first such case against Monsanto to complete the full trial process over allegations that the chemical sold under the Roundup brand is linked to cancer. Thousands have made similar legal claims across the United States. Many of these are still tied up in the labyrinthine procedures of the American justice system and many other complainants have either run out of money or simply given up.

The Johnson case focused on the chemical glyphosate, the world’s most widely used herbicide, which Monsanto began marketing as Roundup in 1974.  The company began by presenting it as a “technological breakthrough” that could kill almost every weed without harming humans or the environment. –SHTFplan.com

In September, 2017 the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) concluded that glyphosates were not likely carcinogenic to humans, based on a decades-long study. In 2015, the World Health Organization (WHO)’s cancer arm issued an opposite statement – warning that glyphosate was “probably carcinogenic to humans.”

Johnson’s case is not part of the consolidated proceedings in Missouri, Delaware or California state court, where some 2,000 similar cases are pending. It’s also separate from a federal multidistrict litigation waiting to be heard by US District Judge Vance Chabria of San Francisco – who allowed hundreds of Roundup lawsuits to proceed to trial after ruling that there was sufficient evidence for a jury to hear the cases despite calling a plaintiff’s expert opinions “shaky.”

Documents released in August of 2017 led to questions over Monsanto’s efforts to influence the news media and scientific research and revealed internal debate over the safety of its highest-profile product, the weed killer Roundup.

As the New York Times commented last year, leaked internal emails, among other things, reveal ethical objections from former employees to “ghost writing” research studies that were pawned off as ‘independent’ analyses.
These documents detail the meaures to which the Monsanto was willing to resport in order to protect its image. Documents show that Henry I. Miller, an academic and a vocal proponent of genetically modified crops, asked Monsanto to draft an article for him that largely mirrored one that appeared under his name on Forbes’s website in 2015. Mr. Miller could not be reached for comment.

A similar issue appeared in academic research. A biologist involved in writing research funded by Monsanto, John Acquavella, a former Monsanto employee, appeared to express discomfort with the process, writing in a 2015 email to a Monsanto executive, “I can’t be part of deceptive authorship on a presentation or publication.” He also said of the way the company was trying to present the authorship: “We call that ghost writing and it is unethical.”

The newly disclosed emails also reveal internal discussions which cast some doubt over whether internal scientists actually believed in the company’s external messaging that Roundup was, in fact, safe. In the bigger picture these documents will throw into doubt legal judgements in many other cases, as they strongly suggest Monsanto have misled the courts in their evidence.

Twitter descends into right-left spats over Tommy Robinson release from jail

Tommy Robinson supporters protest outside The high Court

Supporters and critics of Tommy Robinson have descended into tit-for-tat spats over the merits of the former English Defence League leader winning his court challenge, securing his immediate release on bail.

It didn’t take long for pro and anti-Robinson social media users to clash over the judges’ decision. In London on Wednesday Lord Chief Justice Lord Burnett and two other judges quashed a finding of contempt made against Robinson over an incident in Leeds in May – ordering a new hearing over the allegation.

It’s been a case of contrasting emotions on Twitter – joy from Robinson’s loyal backers and irrational fury from his critics. We should bear in mind, before alloeing ourselves to be swayed by the fury, that Robinson has not been declared innocent, he has been released under bail conditions and must present himself at a police station regularly to prove he has not bolted.

The Guardian reports that Robinson has been ordered to attend a retrial in London and to remain at least 400 meters away from Leeds crown court while on bail.

EU Courts to Have Final Say on Brexit ‘Divorce Bill’ and Millions of Migrants

What might well be the final act of betrayal that will finally destroy the political career of the Prime Minister nobody wanted, was enacted earlier this week when Teresa May’s government quietly agreed in a behind closed doors session with the European Union (EU) negotiators to give European courts the final say over Brexit issues, including the massive “divorce bill”, migrant rights, and the Irish border “backstop”.

This latest and most treasonous concession so far from the government would, in the unlikely event of May getting her own party to accept it or brokering a deal between her own party’s Remain contingent, Labour and the SNP, give the European Court of Justice (ECJ) effective control over any dispute involving the £39 billion payment and the status of more than three million European citizens and migrants.

Foreign judges would also control the implementation of plans to keep Northern Ireland locked in the bloc’s Single Market if the border cannot be kept open by other means, as the Prime Minister has agreed. The stark climb-down has been made in private, The Times reports, in an attempt to move talks on after they stalled and EU bureaucrats and negotiators refused to comprise.

One of the central themes in the Vote Leave campaign was the promise to take back control of Britain’s laws and courts and to leave the jurisdiction of the ECJ. The ruling elite are even more deluded than we thought if they try to get away with this. Although Remainers and mainstream media are convinced most leave voters were motivated by racism and xenophobia, in fact a majority of working class voters cited surrender of national sovereignty to foreign bureaucrats as their main reason for voting to leave the EU.

Pro-Brexit Tories slammed this latest revelation as just another example of concessions by Mrs May. Sir Bernard Jenkin, the Tory MP for Harwich, declared it unacceptable and said it could be rejected in Parliament.

“This is very profound. It is giving a status to the European Court of Justice in the withdrawal agreement that is not accorded to the Supreme Court in the United Kingdom,” he said. “That makes it a deeply unequal relationship and therefore unacceptable.”

Former Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith commented: “This would be akin to saying that a UK citizen living in America could have their rights protected by a UK court.”

A UK government source insisted that the ECJ would not have the final say. “We have categorically rejected any proposal that would see the court of one side decide disputes,” they said.

A draft withdrawal agreement between the UK and bloc already states that a joint committee of officials will consider all disputes between the two sides but apparently and without any authority to do so, Mrs. May has overridden this.

Court documents cast doubt on Boris Johnson’s claim nerve gas is in ‘no doubt’ Novichok

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Prime Minister Teresa May have in the past two weeks both gone out on a limb to accuse the Russian government and Vladimir Putin himself of having engineered the chemical attack in Salisbury UK which almost claimed the lives of former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter and led to many people with no connection to the spy or security services in Britain or Russia needing hospital treatment. Johnson has insisted that British chemical lab Porton Down told him the nerve agent used to attack the Skripals was definitely Novichok. However, court documents from a case which grated permission for investigators to take further blood samples from the two main victims, suggest there is no such certainty.

In an interview with Deutsche Welle on Thursday, the UK foreign secretary claimed that analytical chemists working at the UK’s chemical weapons facility at Porton were “absolutely categorical” in confirming to him that the source of the nerve agent, identified by the UK as A-234 – also known as Novichok – was Russian. Johnson said: “Let me be clear with you… the people from Porton Down, the laboratory… they were absolutely categorical and I asked the guy myself, I said, ‘Are you sure?’ And he said there’s no doubt.”

A decision from a High Court Judge on Thursday, however, granted permission to take new blood samples from Sergei and Yulia Skripal for analysis by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).

In his judgment, Justice David Basil Williams included a summary of the evidence, revealing Porton Down’s analysis. The judgment, which includes sworn court evidence from a Porton Down chemical and biological analyst, reads: “Blood samples from Sergei Skripal and Yulia Skripal were analyzed and the findings indicated exposure to a nerve agent or related compound. The samples tested positive for the presence of a Novichok-class nerve agent or closely related agent.”

Former British ambassador to Uzbekistan Craig Murray wrote in a blog post that the evidence therefore does not unequivocally confirm that nerve agent used on the Sripals is definitely Novichok (which is a relatively easy substance to produce,). Murray also claimed that scientists at Porton Down have failed to find evidence of Russian “culpability” as Novichok and similar substances can be produced from easily obtained materials by any comptent laboratory technician.

The judgment comes despite multiple affirmations from the UK government that the nerve gas came from Russia. The evidence given in court raises questions over the information provided by the government to parliament, the EU, NATO, the United Nations and the public.

UK Threatens To Quit Brexit Talks Over EU Excessive Severance Cash Demands

It was never going to be easy, nobody who knows anything about the small minded bureaucrats who run the EU and their vindictive responses to any individual or organisation which obstructs what they, misguidedly, think is their irresistible march toward linking up with the USA and establishing a global technocratic government would have been aware that the Brussels bureaucracy’s response to Brexit would be to punish the arrogant British for their defiance.

With negotiations between the UK and EU likely to formally begin on June 19, Bloomberg reports that Brexit Secretary David Davis has pre-emptively lashed out at EU officials, threatening that “The UK will quit talks on leaving the European Union unless the bloc drops its demands for a divorce payment as high as EUR100bn.”

Britain’s negotiations would otherwise be plunged into “chaos,” and even a 1 billion-pound settlement would be “a lot of money,” Davis said in an interview published in the Sunday Times. Actually Davis and his colleagues on Britain’s negotiating team have audaciously suggested thast not only will Britain owe the EU nothing on leaving the organisation, but in fact the EU will owe Britain tens of €billions.

As Bloomberg notes, the size of Britain’s exit bill, and which types of negotiations can begin before it has been agreed, has been a source of debate for weeks.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has said the U.K. will have to pay about 50 billion pounds, while Luxembourg’s Prime Minister Xavier Bettel has signaled a figure between 40 billion euros and 60 billion euros.

The Financial Times estimated the cost could balloon to 100 billion euros, while a study by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales put the cost at as low as 5 billion pounds ($6.5 billion).

Britain’s conservative government has said it will meet its commitments to the EU, but has questioned how Brussels officials reached their preliminary estimates… especially the oddly round number of 100-billion-euros…

“We don’t need to just look like we can walk away, we need to be able to walk away…Under the circumstances, if that was necessary, we would be in a position to do it.”

UK Prime Minister Theresa May commented on the Brexit bill in an interview with the Sunday Telegraph, by saying that “money paid in the past” by the U.K. into joint EU projects and the European Investment Bank ought to be taken account in the final sum.

“There is much debate about what the U.K.’s obligations might be or indeed what our rights might be,” she said.

“We make it clear that we would look at those both rights and obligations.”

A spokesperson for Barclays said the bank fears that two years may not be enough time to complete the comprehensive Brexit talks neded for a ‘soft’ exit. Which leaves three possible paths ahead…The soft, the hard and the ugly Brexit

While it remains unclear what kind of Brexit PM May is seeking, we believe that her insistence on regaining control of borders and withdrawing from the European Court of Justice is fundamentally inconsistent with the EU’s negotiating position, which is basically that no member state is allowed to completely quit the EU, and makes a hard Brexit, involving leaving the single market unavoidable. The ugly Brexit option is that Britain, unable to hold any rational discussions with the world domination freaks in Brussels simply walks away. That would harm the EU significantly more that the UK.

Kremlin Rejects US, EU Call To Free Detained Protesters

Only days after snap protests against Russian PM Dimitry Medvedev and government corruption  broke out across numerous Russian cities, leading to the detention of hundreds of protesters, the most prominent being  opposition leader Aleksey Navalny, the Russian opposition activist was found guilty of staging an unsanctioned rally, and will be fined 20,000 rubles (US$350) for his role in organizing  anallegedly illegal protest in Moscow.

The Russian protests, the biggest anti-Kremlin demonstration since 2011/2012, come a year before a presidential election that Vladimir Putin is expected to contest, running for what would be a fourth term.

The same court was due to hear later in the same session a separate charge against Navalny of disobeying a police officer.


The Russian opposition activist Aleksey Navalny

“Those [the event’s organizers] who claimed on the previous day in pseudoacademic language that the event was lawful and in no way violated the law – they were telling blatant lies,” Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Monday.

Navalny was detained by the police shortly after arriving at the anti-corruption protest in Moscow on Sunday. He was charged with violating a law on public gatherings.  Moscow police have confirmed they detained some 500 demonstrators.

Approximately 8,000 people were involved in the Moscow protest in, law enforcement officials reported. As the rally grew more volatile, police used loudspeakers to call on the protesters to disperse.

Protesters decided to to ahead in spite of failing to obtain a permit from the mayor’s office to hold a rally at an approved site. The authorities had suggested two alternative venues, which the organizers rejected. Similar rallies, some unsanctioned and others permitted by local authorities, were attended by thousands of people across Russia on Sunday.

On Monday the Kremlin rejected calls by the United States and the European Union to release opposition protesters detained during what it said were illegal demonstrations the previous day and accused organizers of paying teenagers to attend.

On Sunday, the U.S. and the European Union both issued statements calling on Russia to free detained protesters, but Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday such calls were wide of the mark. “We can’t agree with these calls,” Peskov told reporters on a conference call, saying the police had been professional and properly enforced Russian law.

The protestors demanded the resignation of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. Medvedev’s spokeswoman has called corruption allegations against him “propagandistic attacks,” saying they amount to pre-election posturing by Navalny, who hopes to run against Putin next year.

According to Reuters, which cites opinion polls, the liberal opposition, which Navalny represents, has little chance of fielding a candidate capable of unseating Putin, who enjoys high ratings. But Navalny and his supporters hope to channel public discontent over official corruption to attract more support.
