Just seen the Iranian thing... what possessed them to do that? There are talks underway in New York with Rand Paul.... or are the Iranians singling out the UK for special attention?

"EU ombudsman opens inquiry into private sponsorship of Council presidencies
Inquiry follows complaint about Coca-Cola’s sponsorship of Romanian presidency."

https://www.politico.eu/article/ombudsman-opens-inquiry-into-private-sponsorship-of-council-presidencies/

"The European Ombudsman launched an inquiry into the private company sponsorship of the rotating presidencies of the Council of the EU, according to an announcement today.

That follows a complaint by international NGO Foodwatch criticizing the sponsorship of the Romanian presidency by Coca-Cola.

The NGO in February said it was “unacceptable” that the drinks producer was permitted to sponsor the presidency while Romania was overseeing discussions on, for example, revisions to the General Food Law or packaging rules. “This damages the independence and credibility of politics,” Thilo Bode, Foodwatch’s executive director, wrote at the time."

I had a moment to spare so I penned a small essay:

My thoughts on why they behave as they do

Just though tit might tickle someone.

Radio going on about wooden cladding fire on Bellway apartment block in Barking in June
..actually it looks more like decorative Swiss style slatted wooden balconies to me

Bellway says the wood was resistant, maybe but something gave inferno like photos
maybe it was foam behind it or something.

There can be fires which look dangerous, but aren't structurally that bad

Surely if the BBC was merely REPORTING the news they would have no need to meet with XR to talk about how they report the news???

Anyone know if the BBC used the same approach with how they report on President Trump? Did they meet with the White House to discuss their approach and get their approval?

I see (or rather I don't - which is the point ....) that Paul Joseph Watson is being excised from Google search - for me on a PC but weirdly not a phone - yet.

I've subscribed to new PJW video notifications but it's over 6 weeks since I had one but I'm still getting "you might like" for random kerrapp....

Small stuff but indicative of intent I feel.

Mailman
the police do as they're told - and in the case of XR that's indulge them - couldn't possibly be directives handed down looking to seague XR with May's eco-swansong?

I'd add that the attacks on the 2000 fuel protesters way back were centrally coordinated with riot equipped cops being non local teams that arrived - not local force folk - as it was related to me by participants. As far as blocking roads is concerned XR must have been "given permission" - it reeks.

Tomo,

The police need to do two things;

Grow some f89king balls.
Bring back Kettleling

XR wants an emergency...given them a f89king emergency...ROOM!
