#UK: Evidence of "grave or systematic violations of rights of people w/ disabilities" - UN Committee report  @lizmt
Quote; "Systematic violations of the Convention

113. Consequently, the Committee considers that there is reliable evidence that the threshold of grave or systematic violations of the rights of persons with disabilities has been met in the State party. That conclusion is based on the following findings:
(a) The State party has implemented a policy aimed at reforming its welfare system and the reforms have been justified in the context of austerity measures to achieve fiscal and budgetary policy consolidation;
(b) The assumptions made under the policy include that: taxpayers need to be treated with fairness; large numbers of persons with disabilities have been relying and dependent on social benefits; persons are better off in work than on benefits; the dependency of persons with disabilities on benefits is in itself a disincentive to move them into employment; the number of persons with disabilities relying on social benefits were to be decreased; and tightening sanctions and conditionality of social benefits is a legitimate tool for incentivizing their moving into employment;
(c) The impact assessments conducted by the State party prior to the implementation of several measures of its welfare reform expressly foresaw an adverse impact on persons with disabilities;
(d) Several measures have disproportionally and adversely affected the rights of persons with disabilities;
(e) Measures resulting in reduction of support provided to meet the extra cost of disability, denial of reasonable accommodation in assessment procedures and realization of the right to employment have had a discriminatory effect on persons with disabilities;
(f) The core elements of the rights to independent living and being included in the community, an adequate standard of living and social protection and their right to employment have been affected: persons with disabilities affected by policy changes have had their freedom of choice and control over their daily activities restricted, the extra cost of disability has been set aside and income protection has been curtailed as a result of benefit cuts, while the expected policy goal of achieving decent and stable employment is far from being attained;
(g) There is evidence that a large number of persons with disabilities have been affected (e.g. 13,900 persons with disabilities have lost their Motability schemes and therefore their adapted cars, upon implementation of Personal Independence Payment up to February 2016; 492,180 had been placed in the Employment and Support Allowance work-related activity group by end of 2015; 41,792 Employment and Support Allowance work-related activity group sanctions were handed out up to March 2014);
(h) Evidence gathered nationally by the Parliament, the independent monitoring framework, universities and research institutes and centres and independent experts, has documented adverse and disproportionate effects of measures on persons with disabilities;
(i) The State party has not conducted a comprehensive human rights-based cumulative impact assessment even though reliable sources have indicated it is feasible;
(j) The State party continues its policy of reducing social benefits of persons with disabilities as reflected in the Welfare Reform and Work Act 2016." Go to:

Petition: Force the government to act on the eleven recommendations of the UNCRPD* report.
Quote; "As a result of being investigated by a United Nations committee for not fulfilling the terms of the UNCRPD, the government have been found guilty of grave & systematic violations of the rights of disabled people as a direct result of austerity policies introduced into welfare & social care.
  A UN report says a range of measures including controversial cuts to disability benefits, social care budgets & the introduction of the bedroom tax, have disproportionately & adversely affected the rights of disabled people to live independently, to work & achieve an adequate standard of living.
It makes 11 recommendations, including calling on the government to carry out a study of the cumulative impact of all spending cuts on the disabled & to ensure human rights of disabled people are upheld." Go to:

".a series of revelations from FBI whistleblowers reveal that this story is just the tip of a very seedy iceberg*, one that implicates Hastert, his top aide, other Congress members and government officials in a criminal network involved in sexual intrigue, foreign espionage, blackmail, and drug money*.
In 2002 Gilbert Graham, a Special Agent in the Washington Field Office of the FBI, blew the whistle on an illegal surveillance program being conducted out of the Bureau’s Washington headquarters. According to the unclassified version of his complaint, obtained by the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition in 2007, Graham alleged violations of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillence Act “in conducting electronic surveillance as a subterfuge to acquire evidence of criminal activity.”
These allegations were backed up by a former FBI Counterintelligence Specialist in the Washington Field Office, who told the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition: “…you are looking at covering up massive public corruption and espionage cases; to top that off you have major violations of FISA by the FBI Washington Field Office and HQ targeting these cases. Everyone involved has motive to cover up these reports and prevent investigation and public disclosure.”
According to FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds, revealing the details of this program for the first time in a series of podcasts in the wake of the Hastert revelations, this illegal surveillance program — dubbed COINTELPRO II by the agents who were asked to implement it — dates back to the mid-1990s, when the Clinton White House was being rocked by a series of sex scandals."

"The nations not so blest as thee Must, in their turn, to tyrants fall, While thou shalt flourish great and free: The dread and envy of them all."


1. When Britain first, at Heaven's command
Arose from out the azure main;
This was the charter of the land,
And guardian angels sang this strain:
"Rule, Britannia! rule the waves:
"Britons never will be slaves."

2. The nations, not so blest as thee,
Must, in their turns, to tyrants fall;
While thou shalt flourish great and free,
The dread and envy of them all.
"Rule, Britannia! rule the waves:
"Britons never will be slaves."

3. Still more majestic shalt thou rise,
More dreadful, from each foreign stroke;
As the loud blast that tears the skies,
Serves but to root thy native oak.
"Rule, Britannia! rule the waves:
"Britons never will be slaves."

4. Thee haughty tyrants ne'er shall tame:
All their attempts to bend thee down,
Will but arouse thy generous flame;
But work their woe, and thy renown.
"Rule, Britannia! rule the waves:
"Britons never will be slaves."

5. To thee belongs the rural reign;
Thy cities shall with commerce shine:
All thine shall be the subject main,
And every shore it circles thine.*
"Rule, Britannia! rule the waves:
"Britons never will be slaves."

6. The Muses, still with freedom found,
Shall to thy happy coast repair; Blest Isle!
With matchless beauty crown'd,
And manly hearts to guard the fair.
"Rule, Britannia! rule the waves:
"Britons never will be slaves."

"Originally, Great Britain was called ‘Albion’ by the Romans, who invaded Britain in 55BC, but this later became ‘Britannia’. This Latin word referred to England and Wales, but was no longer used for a long time after the Romans left.

The name was then revived in the age of the Empire, when it had more significance. The word ‘Britannia’ is derived from ‘Pretannia’, from the term that the Greek historian Diodorus Siculus (1BC) used for the Pretani people, who the Greeks believed lived in Britain. Those living in Britannia would be referred to as Britanni.
The Romans created a goddess of Britannia, wearing a Centurion helmet and toga, with her right breast exposed. In the Victorian period, when the British Empire was rapidly expanding, this was altered to include her brandishing a trident and a shield with the British flag on, a perfect patriotic representation of the nation’s militarism. She was also standing in the water, often with a lion (England’s national animal), representing the nation’s oceanic dominance. The Victorians were also too prudish to leave her breast uncovered, and modestly covered it to protect her dignity!" From; "Historic U.K", go to:

Yew "Haw", Poison in the Flesh: #Europol #ChildSexAbuse #OperationYewTree #Immigration #Epstein #Dutroux #ChildTrafficking

In recent days we learned, quote; "Almost 600 children disappeared last year, with more than 200 still missing, ECPAT UK and Missing People said.
The charities called on the UK government and local authorities to reform the child protection system.
The Department for Education said it had commissioned “specialist training” for those caring for the children.
The two charities collected the latest annual figures provided to them by more than 200 local authorities across the UK."....
 "The study, which will be presented in parliament later, found 167 children – more than a quarter of all trafficked children in the UK care system – went missing… These children are not only abandoned or in need of a home, but trafficked children are perhaps “the most in need” demographic on Earth. The system is failing them and they are running away." Go to:
quote; "Police investigating allegations of historical child abuse against the late Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath have arrested two people.
Wiltshire Police have given no further details about the two individuals, who have been released on bail.
The police probe, named Operation Conifer, began in 2015 after claims against Sir Edward surfaced.
It also "aims to safeguard children and vulnerable adults who may be at risk of abuse today", the force said.
The former Conservative prime minister died at home in Salisbury in July 2005, aged 89." Go to:

.from Al Jazeera in January....

Quote; "Europol has found evidence of a "criminal infrastructure" established since mid-2014 which exploits refugees"

More than 10,000 unaccompanied refugee and migrant children have disappeared in Europe, the EU police agency Europol said on Sunday, fearing many have been whisked into sex trafficking rings or the slave trade.
Europol's press office confirmed to Al Jazeera the figures published in British newspaper The Observer.
The number relates to the past 18-24 months.
Brian Donald, the agency's chief of staff, said that the vulnerable children had disappeared from the system after registering with state authorities after their arrival in Europe.
"It's not unreasonable to say that we're looking at 10,000-plus children," Donald told The Observer, adding that 5,000 had disappeared in Italy alone.
"Not all of them will be criminally exploited; some might have been passed on to family members. We just don't know where they are, what they're doing or whom they are with.
Donald said there was evidence of a "criminal infrastructure" established since mid-2014 to exploit the refugee flow.
The Observer reported that Europol found evidence of links between smuggling rings bringing people into the European Union and human trafficking gangs exploiting migrants for sex and slavery." Go to: For full article.

Arafel: Throwing ones hands in the air as if this is a new problem won't wash, "Operation Yew Tree" and "Paedophile Island" alone should indicate that this is an unresolved issue in our Developed Societies and that the last thing the slavering beast needs is more exposure to vulnerable flesh. There is the clear suggestion now that there are indeed International Child Sex Trafficking Rings operating with apparent impunity within "our" body politic some of which are being deliberately (re-), exploited by some (if not all), of the World''s various security services.

Histories..(and profiles), ..

Quote; "Marc always told me that he kidnapped girls for people who had placed an order with him. When he came out of prison in March 1996, I asked him who did the orders when he was in jail. He answered me that somebody else did that and that he certainly wasn't the only one. When we went to pick up a girl, Marc wanted that she corresponded with the order, small hips. He gave me a description of the girl that we were looking for. [One day] I asked him why they [An and Eefje] were still with him even though he claimed he had an order. He told me that the people who had placed the order had come, but that they weren't interested in them... Dutroux explained me that he conditioned the girls to be obedient and submissive when they arrived at customers..."

"I would like to reveal other things about Jean-Michel Nihoul, but I don't want that these testimonies are taken up in the dossier. As I said, I fear for my life and those around me. I remind you that Nihoul told me the following: 'if you cross me, I will destroy you'. With those words he made it known to me that he would kill me or have me killed." 
Dutroux and Nihoul.
Although convicted for financial fraud, drug- and human trafficking due to an overwhelming amount of evidence, Nihoul was ultimately acquitted from charges that he was involved in the kidnapping and murder of any of Dutroux's girls. However, to anyone who has taken an in depth look into the case, it's clear that a whole lot of leads had to be ignored and discarded before this conclusion could be reached, raising two important questions: How, and why?"..

 "There's a significant amount of evidence that a lot of child abuse happens within networks consisting of degenerate families and their acquaintances, which are exploited and protected (really for reasons not fully understood) by people higher up in the food chain. Children in the network often are forced to bring in other children. The new ones are then controlled through certain psychological routines involving threats, shame and guilt. 
Although victim-witnesses often report having witnessed many murders in these networks, including children from western Europe, data about child disappearances and deaths is very uncategorized and therefore very inconsistent. As for the whole of Belgium, estimates range from "at least" 43 disappearances between 1973 and 1996 to as many as 1,022 in one year, with the D.A.'s office in Brussels claiming that approximately 280 children a year go missing in just Brussels alone. Also, if victims from these networks or some of the above numbers are correct, the obvious conclusion is that the media is not paying attention to many, if not the majority of child disappearances and deaths, which, in case of the British media, seems to be the true.
One interesting aspect many victim-witnesses from different countries have testified about is a very similar psychological approach used to allow the victims of even the most sadistic abuse to function (somewhat) in society, therefore not raising any really alarming questions in the immediate surroundings of the child. We are referring here to the encouraging and maintaining of Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD) in the victims. MPD has these days been renamed to Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). It basically is a psychological disorder in which the mind and the memory of the victim is shattered in ten, hundred, or possibly even a thousand different sub-personalities, making testifying extremely difficult and a very long term process. Several X-Dossier witnesses still heavily suffered from this disorder at the time they began to testify" Go to:

Child sex abuse inquiry crisis: New setback as victims' group quits.

Quote; "In the latest setback for the inquiry, set up by then home secretary Theresa May, the Shirley Oaks Survivors Association, described it as a "stage-managed event which has now been contrived in such a way that it enables the guilty to wash their dirty hands, whilst the establishment pats itself on the back".*
The group, which represents people affected by abuse at children's homes run by Lambeth council in south London, said in a statement: "Having watched the IICSA unpalatable circus stumble and lurch from crisis to crisis with multiple resignations and claims of racial and sexual abuse thrown into the mix, it no longer matters whether we think the inquiry is just another stitch-up because it's clearly a botch job that needs a drastic overhaul if it is ever to achieve its initial objectives."
The announcement comes two days after it emerged that another senior lawyer at the inquiry, chaired by Professor Alexis Jay, had resigned.
Aileen McColgan, a law professor at Kings' College London involved in the inquiry's investigations into the Anglican and Catholic Church, reportedly quit due to concerns over the inquiry's leadership.
Her departure follows the resignation of the inquiry's senior counsel, Ben Emmerson, and his junior colleague, Elizabeth Prochaska.
The inquiry has also had four different chairwomen since it was set up in 2014." Go to: For full article.

We will identify institutional failings where they are found to exist. We will demand accountability for past institutional failings. We will support victims and survivors to share their experience of sexual abuse. And we will make practical recommendations to ensure that children are given the care and protection they need.
The Inquiry is independent of government. The Chair is Professor Alexis Jay OBE, who is supported by a Panel, a Victims and Survivors Consultative Panel, and other expert advisers. More about who we are." Go to: For full article.

Quote; "A former BBC governor and Children in Need chairman says he had suspicions about Jimmy Savile more than a decade ago and felt so strongly about rumours of the late Jim'll Fix It presenter's child abuse that he would not allow him any involvement with the charity.
Sir Roger Jones said he always felt that Savile was "a pretty creepy sort of character" and had heard of rumours from BBC staff in London, but did not tell management because he did not have any evidence to back the gossip up.
"If you're going to go on the attack and make claims against him, then you'd need evidence, hard evidence that simply wasn't there," he said in an interview with BBC Wales.
"When I was with Children in Need, we took the decision that we didn't want him anywhere near the charity and we just stepped up our child protection policies which again would have put him at risk if he tried anything. I think we all recognised he was a pretty creepy sort of character."
Jones said he was extremely conscious of the potential for paedophiles to be associated with the charity event, which involves celebrities and others raising money for vulnerable and ill children around the country and internationally.
"We knew that the biggest thing to guard against was the paedophiles," he added.
"They were just like flies around the honey pot. Not just in the fundraising, but also in the distribution of funds.
"I mean, if we had given money to a paedophile group, the sky would have fallen in on the BBC. So we were very, very careful, we were on red alert.""

Quote; "Robert Vaughn passed away on Friday at the age of 83 following a brief battle with acute leukemia.
The beloved American actor, whose career stretched across six decades, was best known for his role as Napoleon Solo on the classic NBC series The Man From U.N.C.L.E., which ran for over 100 episodes from 1964 to 1968.   
Over the course of his lifetime, Vaughn appeared on over 200 different television programs.
Vaughn was also a regular on the big screen, starting off his career with an unaccredited role in The Ten Commandments before going on to land sup[porting roles in films such as The Magnificent Seven and The Young Philadelphians, for which he received an Academy Award nomination back in 1960 for Best Supporting Actor.
In recent years he had found success across the pond, starring in the long-running British soap opera Coronation Street as well as all eight seasons of the television drama Hustle."..........
"For his work on The Young Philadelphians Vaughn was nominated for both the Golden Globe and Academy Award in the category of Best Supporting Actor.
Vaughn then followed that up with the biggest film role of his career, starring alongside Hollywood legends including Steve McQueen, Yul Brynner and Eli Wallach in the classic western The Magnificent Seven. 
Once again Vaughn received a Golden Globe nomination, this time for Most Promising Newcomer. 
He was only five years into his career by this point but already Vaughn had appeared on over 40 episodes of television playing different characters, and his frequent work on TV would continue throughout the 1960s."

Quote; "When the master of ceremonies suggested that Robert Vaughn's speech on Vietnam would move them to "out-rage and indignation," the students in Emerson Hall laughed for a full minute. "I'm serious," pleaded the master of ceremonies. More laughter. Napoleon Solo was in another jam.
For an actor, Vaughn gave a terrible performance. He was tense and rigid. His lips were set as tight as his fisted grip on the podium. In his outrage and indignation he overran words, phrases, whole sentences like a boy delivering an oral report to the sixth grade. But he was not acting. The students, who had been expecting a sardonic, composed, and eminently hollow spy, responded with a standing ovation.
Vaughn has been giving these long, impassioned denunciations of the Vietnam war for a year. He operates on his own, relying only on his friend John Hackett, a free-lance writer who ghostwrites some of the speeches. His U.N.C.L.E. schedule permits him just one or two speeches a month; Vaughn selects forums--mostly universities and political clubs--which provide the maximum publicity. When President Johnson met Vaughn at a party recently, his only comment was, "Hello, Mr. Vaughn. You're the speech-maker, is that right?"
His motive, like his private manner, is straightforward. Vaughn indulges a long standing, intellectual concern for current affairs. "It's a matter of social consciousness," he says. "After a year's worth of research on Vietnam, I decided that there was no justification for our involvement there. I had gathered all his knowledge. I had to make use of it. And I was energized by the insanity of this policy of madness, by this Administration's distortion of history."
In a nation smothered by the blue-silver smog of television Vaughn is a celebrity. No Progressive Labor spokesman could be more appealing to construction workers, taxi cab drivers and unemployed factory hands than the glamorous man from U.N.C.L.E. William Fulbright can't compete with him for the attention of middle class clerks and housewives. He is very much aware of the possibilities created by his star status, and he has chosen to utilize them for the benefit of the anti-war cause. "Everyone doesn't have the podium I have to speak from," he says. "My audiences may come out of sheer curiosity, but they are courteous and they stay to listen.".............

..."A proud graduate of Evelyn Wood's speed-reading institute, Vaughn is quick to tell you that he receives and reads "54 magazines--from the Peking Review to the National Review." He has researched all of the State Department's papers on Vietnam and reads the Congressional Record daily. He corresponds with Senators McGovern, Church, Morris, Gruening, Kennedy, Hatfield, Clark, and Hartke. And he is writing a Ph.D. thesis on "McCarthyism in the American Theatre" for the Department of Communications at the University of Southern California. When he finishes, he will teach a one-night-a-week seminar in International Relations.
"I don't have many actor friends," says Vaughn. "I find others more stimulating intellectually. Actors are too involved with self, less involved with the outer, real world." An exception is Steve Allen whom Vaughn respectfully describes as a consummate intellectual. "He has a library of books and clipped periodicals which covers from floor to ceiling the walls of his study."
This determined, well-documented intellectualism relaxes when Vaughn discusses Vietnam. Of those politicians who support the war he says, "I have made an evaluation of their psyches and makeup, and I fear that I come up with nothing but negative responses." Slowly, the stiff, contrived prose becomes washed with delightful vehemence. "I think that people who don't object to the war are either ignorant or indifferent. Let's face it, the guys on my side are good guys, just good guys," says the good guy from U.N.C.L.E. "The other guys are not good guys. That's all there is to it." Go to:

Quote; "Comey Lets Clinton Off Again, FBI in ‘Shambles’

 FBI Director James Comey, who threw Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign into turmoil by reopening the investigation into her secret email server, closed the case again Sunday.
Comey informed key members of Congress in a letter that the determination he made in July — that the former secretary of state should not face criminal charges — has not changed.
“I would assume that given the director’s cowardice … and the feathering of his political nest, the Clinton Foundation probe is dead. He absolutely no stomach for investigating Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, or the foundation.”
“Since my letter [reopening the case], the FBI investigative team has been working around the clock to process and review a large volume of emails from a device obtained in connection with an unrelated investigation,” he wrote. “During that process, we reviewed all of the communications that were to or from Hillary Clinton while she was Secretary of State.”
Comey did not go into detail about what agents found. But he indicated it did not rise to the level of a criminal offense. It is unclear how Comey’s announcement affects, if at all, a separate probe into the Clinton Foundation." Go to:

Quote; "The Pentagon and the CIA had been devising strategies with which to remove such obstacles to action (of which Mr. Bush was of-course fully aware), one of which was to provoke or “encourage” an attack on one of his oil rich neighbours (something that Saddam would “jump at” at the time in order to refill his treasury following Iraq’s bloody and costly war with Iran). In order to facilitate this it would be necessary to somehow deceive Saddam as to America’s true interests in the region as not even he would risk direct conflict with the most powerful military machine on the planet. Such a deception however would risk showing America’s hand to the international community in a way which even Bush senior felt unable to justify and therefore these plans remained shelved until such time as the political climate became more favourable. Around this time however certain documents were stolen from the United States which were to provide the precise impetus necessary with which to change the weather. It seems that although America had secured the necessary technical documents which would enable one to produce a viable fusion weapon (something Saddam did not have the industrial or financial ware-withal to do in any-case), the original Almagordo trinity test specifications for a fission bomb were not held under such tight security and were stolen  (“rumour has it” by an Asian “freelancer”), and then sold to the Iraqi regime. Once this had happened* Bush seniors reaction was to “green-light” the operation which would lead to “Desert Storm” (go to:  “How Bush Tricked Saddam into Invading Kuwait “The April Glaspie Interview”). As you can see this information is extant (thank you Adel Darwish and Gregory Alexander –“Unholy Babylon” Gollancz 1991-)"
