Fascist State Westminster Establishment?

Wmins

READ BEFORE YOU COMMENT!

READ BEFORE YOU COMMENT! Now to get to the point I am going to Suggest, I will add the meaning of Fascism, then we can talk it through and ask the question “Are we all in the UK Living in almost Fascism state?” I think it’s a valid question when we understand totally what fascism is and means and does, and of course how it works or doesn’t work. As always I will link to other sources who are asking what I am or just thinking out loud like I am

Alternate History: “Fascist Britain” – Why was this video made?

Fascism:

Fascism (/fæʃɪzəm/) is a form of radical authoritarian nationalism that came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe. Influenced by national syndicalism, fascism originated in Italy during World War I, in opposition to liberalism, Marxism, anarchism and traditional conservatism. Fascism is often placed on the far-right within the traditional left–right spectrum, but some academics call that description inadequate. Fascists identify World War I as a revolution. It brought revolutionary changes in the nature of war, society, the state, and technology. The advent of total war and total mass mobilization of society had broken down the distinction between civilian and combatant. A “military citizenship” arose in which all citizens were involved with the military in some manner during the war. The war had resulted in the rise of a powerful state capable of mobilizing millions of people to serve on the front lines or provide economic production and logistics to support those on the front lines, as well as having unprecedented authority to intervene in the lives of citizens. Fascists view World War I as having made liberal democracy obsolete, and regard total mobilization of society under a totalitarian single-party state as necessary to prepare a nation for armed conflict. To respond effectively to economic difficulties, such a totalitarian state is led by a strong leader — such as a dictator and a martial government composed of the members of the governing fascist party — to forge national unity and maintain a stable and orderly society. Fascism rejects assertions of violence automatically being negative in nature and views political violence, war, and imperialism as means that can achieve national rejuvenation.

Fasces:

British Union's original flag, a fasces imposed over a blue disc

British Union’s original flag, a fasces imposed over a blue disc

Fasces (/ˈfæsiːz/, Latin pronunciation: [ˈfas.keːs], a plurale tantum, from the Latin word fascis, meaning “bundle”)[1] is a bound bundle of wooden rods, sometimes including an axe with its blade emerging. The fasces had its origin in the Etruscan civilization, and was passed on to ancient Rome, where it symbolized a magistrate’s power and jurisdiction. The image has survived in the modern world as a representation of magisterial or collective power. The fasces frequently occurs as a charge in heraldry, it is present on an older design of the United States ten cent coin and behind the podium in the United States House of Representatives, it is used as the symbol of a number of Italian syndicalist groups, including the Unione Sindacale Italiana, and it was the origin of the name of the National Fascist Party in Italy (from which the term fascism is derived).

So when we analyze the meaning it becomes clear there are remnants of Fascism on show should we look. We can’t confuse Fascism with Nazism because I know many will and do. The USA in my opinion is further up the Fascism road than any 1st World Country that claims democracy rings free. But if it is alive in Britain today be it Northern Ireland, England, Wales or Scotland, what can we do about it? When we read about Fascism we know that when Politics meet commerce then dictates political law, we live, perhaps? in almost Fascist surroundings. I am just hypothesizing here of course. If anyone replies with ‘Stupid, I will call them out for reacting without reading. When David Cameron and Ed ran for political office they were donated money through commerce, oil and banking giant’s, so it leads to the question “When if office do they look out for the people who paid for them to be in power, or do they look out for it’s people” We all know the Tory party today lack any remorse for the well being of it’s people, they take our money and use it for their own selfish needs. One point to note is when we bailed the criminals in banking out, Iceland jailed it’s wrong doing bankers, so Iceland is democratic? Would that be a fair comment? If so, where does this leave hungry Britain? We can’t deny the ruling class in the UK sip the fine wine while the vast majority of the people taste ground water. What do you think?

These people donate to political parties so when in office, the person they backed looks after them

Man named after being killed in Lothian M8 crash

 Wayne Strickland died in the M8 collision between two cars, a lorry and van.

Wayne Strickland died in the M8 collision between two cars, a lorry and van.

This is so very sad. Yesterday I wrote ‘1 dead, cars on fire – M8 Edinburgh – I was there’ <Click) There are a few images and videos in there. I got a hard time from a few people but once we spoke they understood that blog. I was there in terms of, a mile away and stuck in traffic for 5 hours in pain. BUT!! All the time I waited my mind was thinking “Who died” 😦 Because that is pretty much all any of us knew, the traffic was so slow drivers were out cars speaking to each other, and all we knew when I did the video was ‘A person had passed. This swept from car to car as I seen people’s heads drop and some cry. It was that real, and so sad. My heart and soul go out to Wayne’s family. I can only offer words of comfort and I will. Below is from a decent media outlet STV (Scottish Television) for people reading this from foreign shores.

Video we did at the time

~~Story Via: http://news.stv.tv/ ~~

A man who died after his car burst into flames in a crash with another car, lorry and van on the M8 has been named.

The 49-year-old man, named by police as Wayne Strickland, from Fife, died in the four-vehicle crash on Monday between Bathgate and Livingston. The incident happened around 8.45am which left the cars and HGV destroyed by the blaze. Firefighters extinguished it shortly before 10.30am.

A Peugeot 206, which Mr Strickland was driving, a Kia Rio, Mercedes van and an articulated HGV were all involved in the collision.

Mr Strickland’s family released a statement through Police Scotland paying tribute to “one of life’s true gentlemen.”

It said: “Wayne was a much loved and respected father, husband, son and brother. “A business advisor with West Lothian Council, he was on his way to work from his home in Inverkeithing when the accident happened. “Wayne was a devoted husband to Bernadette and much adored father. He was one of life’s true gentlemen and he will be sadly missed.”

The motorway was closed for most of the day while emergency services tended to the injured and cleared the scene. Two people were taken to hospital while a number of “walking wounded” were treated by paramedics by the roadside.

A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Police Scotland responded to a four-vehicle collision on the westbound carriageway of the M8, Junction 3 at around 8.50am on Monday July 20. “Two cars, a van and an articulated lorry were all involved in the incident, which resulted in three vehicles catching fire. “We can confirm that one male has died as a result of this collision and inquiries are ongoing.”

A spokesman for West Lothian Council said: “Wayne was a very popular and respected colleague and those that worked with him have been left devastated by this tragic news.”Wayne had worked with West Lothian Council for a number of years and those that had the pleasure to work with him feel very fortunate to have known him as a colleague and friend.

“As a business advisor Wayne worked closely with the local community to help people set up their own companies and his loss will be felt by the wider business community in West Lothian. “He will be greatly missed and our thoughts and prayers are with Wayne’s family and friends at this very sad time.”

Twenty members of the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service were in attendance, with six of them wearing breathing apparatus and using high pressure hoses.

A spokeswoman said: “Appliances from Livingston, Sighthill, Bathgate and Linlithgow Fire Stations were mobilised to the scene. “The first appliances arrived within minutes and immediately started tackling a fire involving an articulated lorry, a van and two cars.”

1 dead, cars on fire – M8 Edinburgh – I was there

Entrance to the M8 from Edinburgh to Glasgow

Entrance to the M8 from Edinburgh to Glasgow

I left Edinburgh at around 11:45am for a 30 minute drive there and back for a spring for the back end of my car. It turned into an almost 5 hour traffic jam. At first news was coming through of a crash, the tailbacks were so bad people were talking to each other in car’s as the traffic jammed. I heard sadly 1 person has died and another 2 are or could be critical. One car came East bound into the West bound carriageway, smashing into oncoming traffic at 9:30am, peak traffic hours where people are doing 70 Miles per hour. Not good for the lad who died. May he rest in peace! Some images below I took as well as this video here. I will link in some Tweets at the bottom also. Horrible day

I took this video myself after waiting for 40 minutes 5 minutes from my house

A man has died after a van caught fire in a crash with two cars and an articulated lorry on Scotland’s busiest motorway. The incident happened around 8.45am on Monday between M8 junction 3a (Bathgate) and junction 3 (Livingston) eastbound. Both cars and the HGV had been destroyed by the blaze which was extinguished shortly before 10.30am.

STV News understands the victim is a 49-year-old male from Fife. A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Police Scotland responded to a four-vehicle collision on the westbound carriageway of the M8, Junction 3 at around 8.50am on Monday July 20. “Two cars, a van and an articulated lorry were all involved in the incident, which resulted in three vehicles catching fire. “The M8 is currently closed in both directions while emergency services are in attendance at the scene and it is due to remain closed for several hours. “Full diversions are in place and congestion on the M8 is now starting to ease. “We can confirm that one male has died as a result of this collision and inquiries are ongoing.”

Horrible to see

Two others were taken to hospital suffering minor injuries and it is believed the motorway could be closed until 5pm. Twenty members of the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service were in attendance, with six of them wearing breathing apparatus and using high pressure hoses.

Earlier a spokeswoman said: “Appliances from Livingston, Sighthill, Bathgate and Linlithgow Fire Stations were mobilised to the scene. “The first appliances arrived within minutes and immediately started tackling a fire involving an articulated lorry, a van and two cars. “The M8 motorway is currently closed in both directions and is expected to remain closed for much of the day. “Police Scotland and Scottish Ambulance Service are also in attendance and fire crews will remain at the scene for some time.”

It was one of the biggest controversies of last year’s Fringe festival. When it emerged an Israeli theatre company had received funding from its government to stage its show in Scotland there was outcry from those opposed to the country’s policies in the Middle-East.

Now a fund-raising campaign founded by the playwright David Greig that arose out of the storm of protest has unveiled a line up of Palestinian artists paid for by £10,000 in public donations.

Greig set up the crowd funding campaign to provide financial aid for shows and artists, notably from Palestine, who otherwise find it hard to come to the Edinburgh festivals. The initiative, called Welcome to the Fringe, has now unveiled a list of 12 artists supported by the campaign and events at two venues during this year’s festival.

Greig was instrumental in setting up the initiative following the controversy that in 2014 engulfed a show called The City by Incubator Theatre. The company was partially funded by Israel’s Ministry of Culture and a series of cultural figures signed a letter urging the Underbelly venue to reconsider staging the show.

Following a furore and an inability to find a new venue, eventually the show was cancelled.

In the aftermath Greig established the funding initiative “to do something positive” and to aid Palestinian – and other – artists.

The project has been developed through a collaboration between Forest Fringe, London’s Gate Theatre and the Greig, with support from the AM Qattan Foundation and the British Council.

The show resulting from this campaign is Welcome To The Fringe: Palestine, an all-day program of performance at the Forest Fringe on August 23. The playwright said he and the venues involved would now like to make the Welcome to the Fringe Fund a permanent fixture for the festival.

Greig said: “Forest Fringe, Northern Stage, The Gate and I all feel that the Welcome to the Fringe model could work for artists from other countries and groups who can’t share so easily in the Fringe’s open access – Syria? Uganda? Ukraine? “And so we would like to build on the funding success last year by developing a permanent Welcome To The Fringe Fund.”

The artists coming to the Fringe include storyteller, Fidaa Ataa; poet Alice Youssef; stand up comedian Ayman Nahas, two performance artists Farah Saleh and Yazan Eweidat, The Al Shaghaf music group and The Al Harah Theatre company. The centrepiece of the days events will be a performance of a newly devised play called Shakespeare’s Sisters by Al Harah. The performers will be in Edinburgh for a week and will be “buddied” with local fringe performers and on Sunday 23rd they will all perform at Forest Fringe.

Welcome to the Fringe will also show short films, an exhibition of photography from Palestine, and panel discussions. Some of the artists will perform at Doune The Rabbit Hole Festival in Doune. The other event is an evening cabaret show: Here Is The New From Over There by Northern Stage at Summerhall.

In this show Lorne Campbell and Northern Stage will be working with a mixed company of Arab and UK musician actors to make a show based on 25 specially commissioned Twitter feeds from 25 writers from Turkey, Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, and Israel. These twitter scripts will be merged with music, video and Traditional Arab storytelling techniques and Facebook feeds from the region to make an “alternative news tapestry, a nightly news show with a difference.”

Last year Greig explained some of his thinking behind the funding campaign.

He said: “It dispirits me knowing that my Palestinian theatre making friends are unable to come here and, it dispirits me to think that Israeli theatre makers who are brave enough to reject their government’s sponsorship, might be unable to come here as well. “In the light of all this, I felt the need to do something positive.”

Greig added: “Palestinian voices must be heard on their own terms. Palestinian theatre makers are massively disadvantaged. “It’s important that, in establishing this fund, we are careful to make sure its disbursement recognises this.”

Katie Hopkins Threats Being Investigated By Police – Does she bring it?

I don't hate Katie, she is paid to upset people by main stream media. She is just a shill

I don’t hate Katie, she is paid to upset people by main stream media. She is just a shill

I don’t dislike this woman I just have no time for her. She offended Scotland where I am at a few times and has I think managed to offend many people and #People of whatever #LGBT. Below I left a heap of tweets aimed at Katie, I did not leave any really bad ones in, some were too close to the mark in terms of a Police Matter. She is paid to offend, it’s what she does. She is paid to cause a storm. So instead of hating here I am just saying “Poor Girl” She will pretty much say anything for money while disrespecting every and any kind of person alive today! Poor woman 😦 People will accuse me of ‘Giving her air time’ Well I disagree, I am not on her twitter nor her page at the Sun who pay this monster to speak the unspeakable for any amount of money I am guessing. So to sum up, she is a crap blogger, that is all she is, a blogger 😀

She really is messed up!

She really is messed up!

Nasty for money

Nasty for money

Money is her desire for sure

Money is her desire for sure

This is just low and wrong

How does she get away with it?

The outspoken star, who causes daily outrage with her comments, was told to publicly apologise to those she had ‘caused pain’ and ‘show positivity to those who are hurt by you’ if she wanted to ‘feel safe’.

The message concluded: “If you do not complete the task addressed to you your personal details will spread like a disease through the deepest and darkest corners of cyber space.”

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police confirmed that the threats were being investigated. “Police in Westminster are investigating an allegation of malicious communications against a 40-year-old woman reported on Tuesday, 30 June,” they said.

No arrests have been made but the investigation remains ongoing.

If convicted, the perpetrator could face a fine or up to six months in prison. Last month, the former ‘Apprentice’ star was the victim of a hacking attack on her official Twitter account. Her profile picture was changed to a rather unflattering snap, and a number of tweets were sent, alleging that a sex tape would be released.

The hacker also unfollowed everybody, apart from one account, with the handle @Polbi25, which was also named in one of the tweets. The attacker also suggested the cyber attack was fair, given the columnist’s many controversial statements and public spats, although there is no evidence to suggest that Anonymous was behind the hack.

SNP forces Palace to back down in cash row – AS I PREDICTED!

63b3808e799bbaaed64abb7187de3857

Now please cast your mind back to December 8th 2014 and you will see I wrote this article here ‘Nicola Sturgeon refuses to pay the Queen! Go on Nicola! <Click) An article many scoffed at and ridiculed the mere mention of Scotland stopping paying for the Royal Families upkeep. Where did I get the story in the first place? Well I research hard, I do say this often 😀  As Nicola and the SNP made a decision that will humiliate Buckingham Palace and Westminster, basically Whitehall 😀 This leaves the question of “What will the Unionist’s do” Now what I do mean is the people who won the ‘September 14th 2014 Referendum’ on Scotland voting herself free away from the British Union. Remember the winners? The 55% were the winners and a small percentage of the ‘No Movement are behind the Queen and all she stands for! Are kinda Protestant as they kinda sing to us ish, yet they never go to church, so this small percentage don’t seem the brightest right <Click) I say a small percentage because I hope so. These are Scottish born people singing ‘God Save The Queen’ so lets get one thing clear, I have no problem with someone born in the UK, I am British through birth just now myself, singing this song, in-fact I encourage being a Nationalist or to be proud of where you come from, there is nothing wrong with that. I said before in another blog, I can’t remember when I pointed out ‘It’s not about our flying the flag, it’s why we fly the flag’? Is it hatred? is it national pride? the reason we wave flags? You have your own answer I hope. Because these are the reasons we need to know Scotland. With no hate we try and co-exist and do what’s right for our kids future yet these people, BACKED BY THE MEDIA!!! Almost control. Every day call for the Scottish Unilateral Declaration of Independence things due to where they lean. Make sense? Please say yes!

I just happen to want a free Scotland away from an uneven Union, with knowledge of WHY

I just happen to want a free Scotland away from an uneven Union, with knowledge of WHY

Should we put up with this? If we vote yes next time or the SNP just  do they all come out the woodwork? It’s the anger, and it’s same anger we see in London Politicians faces when the rob a person already poor. I think the video above and below will match this image perfectly, both love England here ok. The images below are awful, but they are the same looks you get from a small percentage of no voters or Loyalists as the Media call them. Many Yes voters now talk about Unilateral Declaration of Independence (UDI<Click) So there are people on both sides looking for the end result today, sadly we must wait, we who want a free Scotland, I won’t brand us any more, we get that already by the uneducated, thankfully a small %

Because he won a vote condemning poor, poorer all over Britain

Because he won a vote condemning poor, poorer all over Britain

He did it the year before, this guy is evil for money

They got NOTHING. Yes voters are fighting for a lie they fell for!

So Scotland do we want to pay for all this, or do we want to have less Foodbanks? An already brilliant Education System made better? A better National Health Service although it’s all £Free up here, less bombs and more done for the bairns, disabled old and people life just beat up?? Where do you want your Tax money go? You be sitting thinking “I don’t work, what do I care” But you know you pay Tax buying any item on Earth right? Just saying! I know this blog might bring the usual hard men and comments I yawn at and all the hate you can imagine, but really I am ok with it all, people who want to harm you don’t give you a weeks notice in email 😀 In peace and solidarity with anyone in the World who is been stood on by the ignorance of the rest, we stand in Solidarity. Know 1 think my Loyalist in Scotland! Very soon you become a minority in Scotland the same as the Tory and Red Tory alike!

The Queen is set to no longer receive funding via Scotland’s crown estate, a decision that means that the income of the monarch and the rest of the royal family could reduce by more than £2m a year.

It is understood that the Scottish parliament intends to retain the profits from the crown estate in Scotland for use in Scotland, which could have the consequence of reducing the sovereign grant, which funds the monarchy. Buckingham Palace intends to raise the consequences for the Queen with David Cameron and George Osborne.

It had been understood that Scotland would still agree to contribute to the Queen’s costs after taking over management of the crown estate assets north of the border, worth £26m, but it appears that under Nicola Sturgeon this will not occur. “Originally, Alex Salmond did imply that might happen. But the new leadership said no,” one senior aide said.

The sovereign grant – which this year was £39.9m – funds the royal household. It is calculated on a formula that sees the Queen handed 15% of the annual surplus of the crown estate, one of the largest property owners in the UK. This year, revenue from the crown estate in Scotland stood at £14.5m, which represents a £2.2m contribution to the sovereign grant.

Snp are sending out a huge message here

SNP are sending out a huge message here

Palace officials raised the issue as they presented the Queen’s annual accounts. Sir Alan Reid, keeper of the privy purse, said the Scottish plans created a complication over future funding. “The transfer of the Scottish assets of the crown estate to the Scottish government does confuse the issue of renegotiating the percentage in due course because the total assets under the crown estate management will fall, and therefore 15% will be less than it would be if the transfer of the Scottish assets had taken place,” he said.

Under Alex Salmond, the SNP last year pledged that Scotland would retain the Queen as head of state, if the country had voted for independence from the rest of the UK last September. But the monarch faced criticism in Scotland after she was asked to make a rare public intervention in the final days of the Scottish independence referendum, speaking publicly to a well-wisher outside church near Balmoral saying: “I hope people will think very carefully about the future.”

Buckingham Palace stressed that the funding issue would not affect the royal family’s relationship with Scotland. The Queen will “continue to go to Balmoral, and to Holyrood, and she’ll continue to be Queen of Scotland”, said one source.

There appears to be no other mechanism in place for Scotland to contribute to the monarchy. Scottish ministers are thought to be considering transferring the management of the crown estate assets in Scotland on to the local authorities, with the intention of using the surplus for more social purposes.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said it was wrong to infer that Scotland would no longer contribute to the monarchy based on the change to the operation of the crown estate and its impact on the grant received by the Queen. The spokesman said it was an “entirely hypothetical” situation, and that though the sovereign grant was calculated on a percentage of the crown estate income, “there is a formulaic connection between the two, but there is no financial connection between the two”.

Scots would effectively still contribute to the costs of the monarchy because they pay taxes to the Treasury, which in turn supplies the money for the sovereign grant, he said. A Scottish government spokeswoman added: “Scotland will continue to make the same financial contribution to the monarchy as at present – there will be no reduction in the sovereign grant as a result of devolution of the crown estate.”

The Scottish government said that the level of funding the Queen receives from the Treasury under the sovereign grant is set by reference to 15% of the crown estate’s profits and does not come directly from crown estate profits themselves. With most taxes paid in Scotland continuing to be controlled by the Treasury, Scotland will continue to make the same contribution to the monarchy through general taxation.

The sovereign grant – which apart from security costs represents the main public funding of the monarchy – was introduced in 2011 to replace the annual civil list and property and travel grants. It is based on 15% of crown estate profits from two years previously, but its amount cannot drop below the previous year and the exact percentage is renegotiated every five years. It is due for review from April 2016. The crown estate income was surrendered to the Treasury in return for an annual civil list by George III. The Queen’s accounts show a 6.7% increase in funding last year to £37.9m, of which she spent £35.7m, setting the rest aside in a reserve account.

Defending the increase, at a time of austerity, aides said money had to be found for major repairs on property, including at Buckingham Palace. As part of a 10-year plan, aides have looked at re-servicing Buckingham Palace, with an initial estimate of £150m to bring it up to date. One option would involve the Queen and royal household moving out for the duration of repairs.

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall notched up the largest travel bill – a £446,159 tour of Mexico and Colombia, a £239,710 tour of the United States and Charles’s visit to the Middle East, which cost £262,212 – all of them using charter flights.

Royal travel costs rose to £5.1m, up 21% on 2013-4. The Duke of York spent £62,856 on a charter flight to Kuwait and £43,343 on a charter to Saudi Arabia. Prince Harry’s tour of Brazil and Chile cost £43,872 on scheduled flights and £41,754 on charter flights.

Prince Charles saw his income from the Duchy of Cornwall rise by 1.7% to £19.8m. His tax bill, after the deduction of business expenditure, was £4.5m. Presenting the accounts, which will be laid before parliament, Reid said: “The Queen, the royal family and the household continue to provide excellent value for money: at 56p per person annually.” He added: “Over the coming years, the maintenance of the estate and in particular Buckingham Palace will present a significant financial challenge. We will continue to work closely with the royal trustees to ensure that the funding for the royal household reflects that challenge.”

Now I don’t mean this, it’s just a bit of fun. I was on twitter chatting to @ileenemac and we were just having a bit of fun 😀

From the Movie: 

It’s SHITE being Scottish! We’re the lowest of the low. The scum of the fucking Earth! The most wretched, miserable, servile, pathetic trash that was ever shat into civilization. Some hate the English. I don’t. They’re just wankers. We, on the other hand, are COLONIZED by wankers. Can’t even find a decent culture to be colonized BY. We’re ruled by effete assholes. It’s a SHITE state of affairs to be in, Tommy, and ALL the fresh air in the world won’t make any fucking difference!
