Twitter Web App : It is almost two years since police dragged Julian #Assange from the Ecuadorean Embassy. Never forget this shaming image - a warning to all truth-telling publishers and journalists if the US wins its appeal to extradite Julian. Stand up, speak up. Now.

Twitter Web App : The Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill plans something close to a police state in Britain. It will make real protest a crime and condone crime by the police. It is a thug's law. Wake up from the Covid dream, Britain, and stop it. Watch/read this:

Twitter Web App : Isolated Australia missed the pandemic because it was lucky. Claims of cleverness are refuted by the comically failed attempt to vaccinate people that puts the lucky country near the bottom of the league of jabs. Meanwhile, the media scaremongers about the "risks". Unedifying.

Twitter Web App : Peter Ford is a former British Ambassador to Syria. In this interview, he cuts through the propaganda to tell the truth about that abused nation. Please read this important piece:

Twitter Web App : The most effective weapon of great power today is propaganda - lies, half-truths, smears. This is the enemy within. The following letter, which I signed, is about the unraveling of a Big Lie in Syria.

Twitter Web App : You can watch here my 1996 film, 'Inside Burma: Land of Fear', my undercover investigation in what is now Myanmar, a mafia state supported by tourism, big oil and British arms. Aung San Suu Kyi may be very different now, but little else has changed.

Twitter Web App : The statement below on the bloodshed in Myanmar is a gem of hypocrisy. Japan is training Burmese soldiers, Germany won't sanction military companies, Australia will only 'suspend' its military ties, US oil giant Chevron is up to its neck etc. Behold the 'international community'. twitter.com/Reaproy/status…

Twitter Web App : Once again, in a country that has no pandemic, Covid is trivialised by a verbose Australian state premier with a provincial love of press conferences and too much power.

Twitter Web App : The story below is not new but typical of the corrupt Johnson govt, now legislating a police state and outlawing protest, unopposed by Labour, having subverted the NHS and caused thousands of unnecessary deaths. Will they be allowed to get away it?

Twitter Web App : Who is pushing an American campaign of lies that has unhinged much of the Australian elite on China and is beckoning nuclear war? Michael McKinley identifies a new virus called 'threat porn' spread by 'think tanks', especially one.

Twitter Web App : The following piece is an impressive demolition of 'the shabby propaganda campaign dressed up as academic inquiry' into China's treatment of the Uyghurs. Western media (BBC/Guardian) 'plays a central role' in a cynical campaign that is leading us to war.

Twitter Web App : Thanks for more fine weasel words. 'Values' takes the prize, then 'rules based order', 'free press', 'international community', 'difficult decisions', 'human resources', 'relocate', 'agile', 'inclusive', 'access', 'unpack'. So flows Larry David's 'babbling brook of bullshit'.

Twitter Web App : Words of power that obfuscate or deceive: 'reform' 'democracy' 'narrative' 'paradigm' 'significant' 'incentivise' 'synergy' 'draw down' 'ramp up' 'roll out' 'rule out' 'drill down' 'going forward' 'reaching out' 'collegiate' 'optics' 'journey' 'well being'. Any contributions?

Twitter Web App : Britain's foreign secretary, the dim Dominic Raab, says nuclear weapons are key to his govt's 'moral' role as a 'force for good'. Hear the deathly laughter from a million Iraqi graves, from starved, bombed children in Yemen, from expelled Chagos islanders. He speaks for you.

Twitter Web App : Today, the UK govt introduces the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill which will make criminals of peaceful protesters, such as the women assaulted by police on Clapham Common as they protested the murder of a young women - allegedly by a policeman. This is Boris's Britain.

Twitter Web App : Look again at the shadow on the steps below.
I can never forget it. We know there is a climate emergency. We don't know there is a nuclear war emergency. Secretly, Biden is building a new $100 billion nuclear missile system. He needs your silence.

Twitter Web App : Identity politics were invented in the 1970s to fool people that warmongering capitalism was good for them. "Diversity" is corporate cool. Women are CEOs of four of the biggest arms companies. Now NATO, destroyer of countries, has a right-on brand ....

Twitter Web App : The news you don't read. The wars you don't see. The great crimes that don't happen, 'even when they are happening', wrote Harold Pinter. The preferred lockdown fodder are the media antics of British royalty. Please read below:

Twitter Web App : I saw again Oliver Stone's film 'JFK' about the plot to murder John Kennedy, based on the book by Jim Garrison whom I knew. Like Julian #Assange, Stone was vilified for daring to tell the truth that governments lie. Watch his film, or read Garrison's book.

Twitter Web App : When Tom Paine said the "duty of a true patriot was to protect his country from its govt", he might have meant Boris's Britain - a Britain that cuts aid to starving Yemen, and sells bombs to kill its children. Stay silent if you wish. It's the easy way.
