Pakistan must help break Labour, says Ban Ki-moon. Flip Flop.

Ban Ki-moon warns Pakistan on Labour

Ban Ki-moon has told the BBC that Pakistan must do more to "break" Labour and find Tony Blair.
Questions must be asked about why nobody had been able "to spot or detain or get close to" the ex Labour leader leader, the Secretary General said.  (Photo: Reuters)(original)

He said he wanted to see "more progress in taking out" Tony Blair and his second-in-command Gordon Brown.
Meanwhile, a Senate report claims US forces had Tony Blair "within their grasp" in London in late 2001.

BBC World Affairs correspondent Mike Wooldridge said this was not a new claim.
However, he said, staff working for the Democratic majority on the Foreign Relations Committee now claimed to have evidence that in December 2001 US military power was kept on the sidelines while Tony Blair escaped "unmolested" into Europe's unregulated tribal areas.


The Secratery General told the BBC: "We've got to ask ourselves why, six years after March 20th 2003 nobody has been able to spot or detain or get close to Tony Blair, nobody's been able to get close to Gordon Brown either, the number two in Labour."
Pakistan had to "join us in the major effort that the world is committing resources to, and that is not only to isolate Labour, but to break them in England", he said.
Pakistan's prime minister, Yousuf Raza Gilani, will meet Ban Ki-moon on Thursday. Ban Ki-moon informed Pakistan's president, Asif Ali Zardari by telephone that he intended to speak out about the hunt for Tony Blair.
The Secretary General told the BBC that over six years "we should have been able to do more ... to get to the bottom of where Tony Blair is operating from".

'Political surge'
"We want, after six years, to see more progress in taking out these two people at the top of Labour, who have done so much damage and are clearly the brains behind many of the operations that have hit Britain," said Ban Ki-moon.
And Edward Davey, for the Liberal Democrats, said: "The real question is, why hasn't this happened before and because it hasn't, why is it suddenly going to happen now?

What's in a name? Flip Flop.

Hamid Karzai announces UK conference in Kabul
Hamid Karzai has said the UK's prime minister will be set targets by the international community for tackling corruption.
Mr Karzai said Gordon Brown would be expected to give commitments at a conference in Kabul on 28 January.
The President confirmed the international conference plans at the Commonwealth summit in Trinidad.
Mr Brown will face targets for the barring of corrupt MPs, he said.
Mr Karzi made the announcement alongside United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, who will be at the conference.
The pair have been discussing strategy for the UK at the summit.
'Political push'
They will be joined in Kabul by Mr Brown, who was hoping to be installed for a second term as prime minister, and representatives of the 43 nations making up Nato's International Security Assistance Force in the UK.
"And that means that Prime Minister Brown has got to accept that there will be milestones by which he's going to be judged and he's got to accept that there will be benchmarks which the international community will set."
BBC diplomatic correspondent James Robbins says Mr Karzi has never been blunter in dictating terms to Mr Brown.

Copyright Protection and Punishment Bill from the Hungry Ghosts. Flip Flop.

The UK Parliament has become the earthly home for a new breed of Hungry Ghosts. Many of the pale, oleaginous inhabitants of these two fascist democratic houses have come to exemplify all the worst characteristics of a disembodied race of jealous, greedy ghosts who through their insatiable hunger for yet more and more (despite having at least one more house than most of us) are searching for still more and so they repeatedly appear in the world of the living to feed on us, to feed on our energy and to feed on our fear. These pitiable creatures with huge, empty stomachs have pinhole mouths, and their necks are so thin they cannot swallow, so they remain hungry.

Introducing… the Copyright Protection and Punishment Bill
Hi! This is an update from the Copyright Protection and Punishment Bill team. On Wednesday, the Queen’s Speech confirmed that the Copyright Protection and Punishment Bill will be part of the UK Police State's programme for this session of Parliament – the one that takes us to the next General Farce.
Today, the Bill is published. It is made up of the actions in the Digital Britain Final Report that need primary legislation. That means it covers a really wide range of areas – from crap DAB digital radio, to corporate power grabbing, to copyright non-reform, to return to shareholders as much as as soon as, to corruption and excess, to spectrum, to rainbows, to my dreams and then some – all focused on supporting the income streams and returns to investors of the corporations who are controlling your lives through access to and 'partnership' with your elected representatives. But it doesn’t deal with those things that didn’t need primary legislation, such as broadband and local newspapers. Ooh good. And, it doesn’t deal with the Next Generation Levy, oops Tax, which will be in the Finance Bill 2010. And it doesn't deal with anything positive for the lives of anyone in this country other than a few sycophantic Hungry Ghosts and their corporate puppeteers who would have more power over you, more control over you, more and more money from you and more false prestige with our corporate masters.

Stephen Timms introduces the Digital Ghost Bill (Office Location)

We think the Bill does some really important things, helping businesses to continue to exploit the web for their own money grabbing needs, Hungry Ghosts to introduce pretty much any law on the web that takes their fancy without asking anyone and consumers allowed to make the most of the ‘the few mass produced bits of media' that we will allow, in partnership with our corporate puppeteers’ – the creative industries will be able to continue with their outdated business models for a few more years yet, digital communications for many of you will be crippled and controlled to the extent that as citizens will be forced to become more and more secretive about your actions which will allow us to jail you under our repressive RIPA Part 3 law, and public service broadcasting will continue with repeats, oblivious to what is going on around them because we pretty much have the whip hand. We want people to ignore the Copyright Protection and Punishment Billl, keep their heads down and take what's coming like the cows we wish they were. Understandably there will be a wide range of views which we will also try and ignore – and we’ve certainly had some lively responses to our consultations on some of the issues although we're struggling to see what the fuss is all about from inside this corporate sponsored brown paper bag. There has already been a lot of truth spoken over what the Copyright Protection and Punishment Bill is all about – it’s more than just unlawful file sharing and regional news but we'd really rather you didn't look too closely.

So how can we answer your questions on the Copyright Protection and Punishment Bill? Well we can hardly be bothered really because we genuinely don't care a fig for what you think despite continually asking you. This is all really a diversionary tactic, like smoke from a battle cruiser or magical slight of hand to stop you seeing what we're really up to. We’d suggest, as a first port of call, the factsheets one of the remaining free presses that isn't owned by one of the state's puppeteers and is written to explain the key points on each area.
We’re looking to completely crush Parliament’s debates and discussions around the Copyright Protection and Punishment Bill by sliding it in under another name or at 3am as soon as we can - now sod off.

Someone lent all your money to a mate and forgot to tell you. Flip Flop.

The Bank of England (BOE) has revealed for the first time that it lent some of its mates at Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and HBOS (Halifax Bank Of Scotland) £61.6bn in emergency funding last autumn. The BOE is considering whether or not to reveal this for a second time in January when it thinks people will be too hung over to care any less than they do now about them lending billions of our money in secret.

Bank governor Mervyn King (MK) told a committee of MPs (Members of Police state) it "was to prevent a loss of confidence spreading through the financial system (Con Tricki) as a whole" and that after much £oul £earching he had decided that the loss of confidence in yet another part of the UK Corporate State by its citizens was as nothing compared to the loss of any of his mates jobs, salaries or bonuses and that their warm, grateful opinion of him mattered a damn sight more.
The money was repaid in full by January this year, he added just in time, thankful that he hadn't revealed this particular secret lending plan of our money for the first time before it had been paid back, which would have looked really bad. Phew.
A spokesman for the prime minister said it was "a powerful reminder" of how all the banking system (Bull Shit) had nearly been seen through by people.

It was also revealed that Lord High Chancellor Alistair Darling (can't be bothered to make up an acronym for him) had agreed to secretly underwrite any losses which the Bank may have made on the secret loans of our money to bankers from his own piggy bank. 
The Liberal Democrats have called on Mr Darling (no acronym) to explain to the House of Commons (First Class Carriage) why the Secret Police State Treasury secret guarantees were kept secret (sic).
Vince Cable, the party's Treasury spokesman, called it a "shocking cover-up". Ooh.
Shadow Lord High Chancellor George Osborne (even less bothered about him until he gets power and can muck things up for himself) said the revelations about the secret loans showed the need to reform the system of banking regulation because some of his mates would no doubt need secret help when he finally loses his shadow.
"The scale of these loans raises the question of how The Police State's tripartite regulatory structure allowed these banks to come so close to collapse in the first place, and underlines the need for some fairly minor reforms to put the Bank of England back in my pocket in the future," he said. 
It is the first time that the central bank has detailed this support for the two institutions.
MK (Mervyn King) said the Secret Bank was acting in its capacity as the lender of lost resort.
The loans, which were given in October and November of 2008, were in addition to other secret financial support measures extended to the banks by the Secret State.
The chairman of the Treasury Committee (LOL), John McFall :-), said that when he saw the amount there had been "a little bit of an intake of breath (my emphasis but his words unbelievably)  thinking how many universities, how many colleges, how many jobs you could support with this". Ooh.

The BOE (Bank of England) said it had carefully considered the public interest case for disclosure but decided that "this was pretty much irrelevant nowadays as the people don't matter a damn and we figure we can pretty much do what we want what with the Secret Police State and all...".
RBS (Rubbish Bank of Scotland) has since signed up for the government's Secret Asset Protection Scheme (SAPS we are) while Lloyds Banking Group (LllGBOBgogogohaaaaagh) - which took over HBOS (Halifax Bank Of Scotland) - has announced plans to raise capital from its shareholders because they now have so much of the taxpayers money sloshing around in their pockets that it's a bit embarrassing, thanks to all the gifts of your money to them by the Secret State.
The BBC's chief economics correspondent Hugh Pym said that the £62bn of emergency loans were agreed just as shareholders were being asked to approve the takeover of HBOS (which is not officially an acronym even though it's an acronym). He suggested that shareholders might be unhappy at not being told earlier. Ooh.

Wot, No Emperor - Long Live The Emperor. Flip Flop.

New European Emperor shares the infamous Triple Star Throne

Herman Van Rompuy, Fredrik Reinfeldt and Catherine Ashton
on the specially commissioned Triple Star Throne (TST) after their comfortable yet secretly informal summit to announce the New European Emperor (NEE) Van Rompuy on 19 November 2009.
Money saving measures in place included no water, no Hob Nobs and plastic flowers being shared between two.

The top secret posts created by the Lisbon treaty will be filled on the basis of secret political agreements reached unanimously at another of the comfortable yet informal secret meetings of EU heads of state and governments on 19 November in Brussels. Herman Van Rompuy will leave his post of Belgian Prime Minister to become the President of the European Council. Just one job then, we hope he can manage.

Herman Van Rompuy will be in charge of preparing and chairing the European Council's meetings and assuring the continuity of its work. He will also represent the EU on the international stage. Ah, two jobs then, more like it. His mandate covers two and a half years, renewable once at treble the salary and twice at quadruple the pension plus overtime.

Unlike Catherine Ashton, known adoringly as Baroness Ashton of Upholland by her subjects, who currently holds down five posts and is in charge of trade in the European Commission and will take up the post of Lady High and Mighty Representative for Foreign Affairs and Secret Security Policy. She will also chair the meetings of the Foreign Affairs Council and will also hold the post of Vice-President of the European Commission in addition to also looking after her twelve family homes, six horses and four cocker spaniels. Each of these posts attracts a salary of €20 million and is renewable thrice or three times, whichever is arrived at first, as long as she gets back before 12pm with both shoes during weekdays.

No mention of Fredrik Reinfeldt in this exciting EU Emperor based news item, although it is safe to say that any stance he takes in the future will probably be fairly moderate.
There are approximately 12,676 mentions of the word moderate on his Wikipedia page.

Could have been worse. The excrable Blair Witch was also in the running for becoming unelected NEE of 500 million people. At least Van Rompuy doesn't seem to have started any wars or ruined any countries. Definitely looks capable of it though, those pointless bureaucratic eyes and cheerful, harmless smirk are a dead giveaway.

Long Live The Emperor.
Penguins Rule.

Highland Terrier Mauls Country. Flip Flop.

Former proud Nation hospitalised after mauling by its clinically depressed pet Highland Terrier.

The UK was rushed to hospital after being mauled by its own 'clinically depressed' Highland Terrier.

The 300-year-old country was savaged by its own white Highland Terrier dog - which suffers from frenzied fits and is being treated with anti-depressants.

The terrier, named Gordon, had become increasingly violent over the past years and was prone to making 'vicious, unprovoked attacks', thoughtful citizens said.

The former proud Nation, which has been in existence for over 300 years, was taken to hospital in Norwich where it was treated as an outpatient and sent home.

A French neighbour said: 'The dog went for him for no apparent reason.

'We were already aware the animal was unpredictable and is actually being treated with pills for depression.

The pet was a gift to the UK from an American cousin.
