BEHIND YOUR BACK: More duplicity in Syria, Congress trumps Trump,& questions for Alistair Darling to answer.


Ooooh nooooo….Alistair is Morgan Stanley’s Darling

Little Osborne was at the Despatch Box this lunchtime CET, talking about “the lack of cooperation we are getting from Assad” the Syrian leader, adding, “which is of course why we want him out”.

Coming from a Government that has supposedly signed up to a ‘coalition’ against ISIL, sorry, sorry, Daesh, this seems an extraordinary thing to say, given that the Number One objective of ISIL is also to, er, get Assad out.
In fact, the totality of UK/US perfidy in Syria is now becoming pretty clear. Not long ago I posted about a supposed leak claiming that the US, UK and Turkey are at the same game – that is, their own interests – under the the guise they share called NATO.
It now appears even more certain that the UK is bombing oilfields alread targeted by a few US and myriad Russian strike bombers; these were allegedly abandoned by ISIL forces some time ago. In doing so, the British government is keeping on the right side of both the Americans and the Turks.

As for the Americans themselves, I understand that aerial photography by the Assad régime has established that at least 35% of the bombing raids there this week have attacked Syrian government forces and infrastructure. It is further alleged that Turkey’s blatant trespass into Iraqi territory ‘to defend our supporters against ISIL’ is nothing of the kind. Turkish officers have been liaising with ISIL forces there, and new covert routes to supply ISIL are being established. The Anglo-American axis is, for the time being at least, turning a blind eye to the duplicitous assistance being given to its enemy’s enemy by Ankara. But come the final decision about pipeline routes, something is going to have to give.
‘Gesture’ military action is everywhere when it comes to Syria. Even the German media have been giving geliebte Mutti a hammering about their Mussolini-style decision to join in at the last minute:

‘Has the the Federal German Government and the Federal Ministry of Defence the faintest idea what an army is actually there for? Germany, December 2015: the migrant crisis has evolved into a bona fide political crisis. The law, as it now stands under the Federal Republic of Germany, is acutely threatened because the government and the executive authority have lost control over the country’s borders, and they’ve lost control over who has access to German territory. Any government still in its right mind would enact emergency and civil protection measures in order to regain control of the situation…..This is not the Merkel government. It clearly doesn’t know what to do with such terms and basic principles. The government uses the German army (Bundeswehr) for its symbolic politics, then expects them to do more badly thought out, spontaneous assignments far away from Germany’s borders, when the army is already underfunded….’

Change the odd name here and there, and this could have been something We the NVEs of Britain put out two weeks ago.


Having made my limbo-low opinion of 97% of what Donald Trump says clear in previous columns, I make no apology now for saying that those who want to ban him from Britain are, as Claude Rains famously said, “the usual suspects” – and just as bad as he is. I don’t like bans: I’ve always felt the word is probably short for bananas. I also spent three years at Uni looking on in horror as the student body banned one harmless eccentric – or even worse, seer – after another. I’m still watching Anglo-American students doing it today. The only difference from half a century ago is that today, such hysterics need counselling to help them get over the trauma of somebody expressing uncertainty with the liberal agenda and its illogical views about “settled science”, gender and a host of other long-since discredited ideas.

Oddly enough, my beef with Trump is different to that of most people when it comes to the ‘Muslim ban’ thing. His idea is so archetypally US-élite driven, it brings me close to rage: “I know, let’s screw up an entire Mediterranean region spanning two continents, and then lock out everyone whose lives got messed up because of it”.  But we are where we are, and I’m afraid I think his view will be the majority one in a few years time.
However, while he mouths off and gets trounced by US liberals holding crucifixes up to ward off the Bull Elephant, observe what the States there are doing behind your back:


Quite a majority, that one.


As if trying to convince us of our incipient insanity, the Maily Torygraph reports today that 83% of its readers think the Corbynista Labour Party is ‘a fringe movement’. Given it just won the Oldham by-election with an increased share of the vote, the Teletubbies of Sark perhaps need to rethink who the deranged folks are. But as a comms specialist, I would advise the Jeremies not to advertise in the Telegraph when looking to recruit new members.

Wading into the fray yet again, the most successful and only rock star Liberal Party leader of Labour Mr Tony Bluuurrgh wrote (in that socialist firebrand magazine The Spectator) this week that CorbyLabour “not only isn’t getting the answers we need, it isn’t even asking the right questions any more”.

So in deference to Moral Tone, I thought I’d line up some questions the Blairites will never ask, the answers to which we will never be given:

1. Why did Tony sell the Northern Rock deposit book to JP Morgan (with whom he has a 7-figure contract) and leave us the UK taxpayers to pick up the tab for the toxic mortgage book?
2. Why has Tony never been indicted for blatantly lying to this country’s Sovereign Body about the WOMD danger to Britain from Sadam Hussein?
3. When is the Chilcot Report into the Iraqi War going to appear, and will it include the recorded fact that Gordon Brown lied to the Enquiry about the budgets he gave UK soldiers in order to fight the War?
4. As Mr Blair stands accused of perverting the course of Justice on the question of arms sales to corrupt members of the Saudi Royal Family (a mafia operation still bankrolling Islamist atrocities on a grand scale) at what point will the Metropolitan Police apprehend and charge him with this alleged crime?
5. Can Tony Blair explain why, in 2006, he was adamant one day at 9.30am that he would never let Gordon Brown take over at Number Ten, but then two hours later – ashen faced – he confessed to Labour MP Frank Field that he had done that very thing?

All these things were done and then covered up behind our backs. But now here’s a new one, hot off the presses: for the Chancellor who followed Gordon Brown-Banknose – Alistair Darling – has just signed a contract with banking firm Morgan Stanley.

Just think of the possibilities for British power in all this: a relatively simple merger between JP and Stanley could produce a new force in banking affairs to rival The Elders of Goldman-Saxburg. Working name Blair Morgan Darling, it could yet restore Queen Elizabeth II as Empress of America and Queen of all the Anglophones.

So yes, oddball Daily Barclaygaffe, Labour may be a fringe movement….but where are the Teletubbies when it comes to questions and answers? Why, somewhere on the Channel Island of Onan, methinks.

  1. “And how about the stupidity? Only a sample of it, is the fact that three years ago the Western clowns had rejected a Russian plan according to which Syria’s president, Bashar al-Assad, could step down as part of a peace deal. How many lives would be saved? How many people would have not abandoned their homes, their country? How much mess would be avoided?”


  2. i can not name one Ex-Chancellor of the Exchequer in recent years who has not found a sinecure in the Financial industry,
    Dominic Lawson. Norman Lamont, John Major, Gordon Brown and now. Alistair Darling.
    This is their Judas payment for facilitating the looting of the Peoples Treasury by ignoring and non enforcement of regulations.
    Gideon Osborne and his porcine pal Cameron,will be joining them in a few years,having sold off the remaining family silver.
    Osbornes grasp of Economics is zilch and he tries to convince us that the deficit was caused by excess Labour Govt spending, when any idiot knows the banks bail out is the prime cause.
    Never mind we will blame the benefit system and the NHS expense and the unwashed multitude will not notice as they are again forced to bail out his bank bum-buddies via cuts in welfare.


  3. Pimco, is a company that deals in bonds. They have had several notable public clashes with reality when selling products of questionable value. The former head honchos accuse each other of bad juju and losing great heaps of money betting on the wrong horse. The founder was forced out when he disagreed (reportedly) with the board about buying junk bonds and risky business. He was against buying junk this time. (reportedly) They have stopped their public spat, noticing that they were helping to scare their own rats to abandon ship, and noticed their semi sentient investors were awake and aware the company was in peril and began cashing in their investments. They pay the government to give them good deals, and get paid by the same government to sell bad deals to others down the food chain.


  4. Brilliant piece John, I see the absolute hypocracy of people who want to ban Trump ( which, incidentaly is a polite word for ‘fart’, in some quarters). They want to ban someone who wants to ban someone…oh let them think this through. Did these same people sign a petition to ban the hate preachers, you all know them by now. dems the ones who want ‘freedom of speech’ innit- and thays oomin rights innit. I heard a hilarious come back last week. Middle class, liberal lady commented on muslims being persecuted, treated like jews when hitler was in power. Man pips in Yeah, and when we took in those persecuted jews they didnt try to fu….king kill us, there’s the catch you stuck up ole…

    John, There are too many fractions all fighting little wars against each other it’s like keystone cops, only in a war zone setting. The nasties in my humble opinion are saudis, turks, who I belive are supporting ISIS in some way. We have no place to be there. It is a civil war, those young men of fighting age should stand and fight for their country.

    I think of the ‘rivers of blood speech’ by Enoch Powel, and wonder what if we had listened to him? Seems his prediction has been validated to some extent. ( we were taught he was a Nazi and a racist- bad ).


  5. Salford Lad +10
    People were railing against the revolving door between gov and the banking sector back in the 1930’s. Nothing changes, if it looks like it will, well a world war will sort it out. Look now at how many European banks and financial institutions are headed by ex-Goldman-Sachs operatives.

    Syria was always a target after Iraq and Libya, next is Lebanon, then Iran and of course Russia. Iceland and Hungary, though minor players will also come under pressure. Sloggers can work out why this is happening.


  6. Nice one John, as ever. Personally, I would support a ban on Trump, just for the heck of it. I also support the US move to make Euros gets visas for America. It should be reciprocated of course. That way perhaps we will get less interaction across the pond and maybe rebuild a modicum of independence from our vassal status.

    A minor quibble. Northern Rock went belly up on Brown’s watch (2008) not Blair’s and I believe the book was later sold off by either Darling or Osborne, I believe the latter.


  7. If Trump was likely to change anything substantive in U.S. politics he would have had an accident, or been diagnosed with an agressive cancer by now. I remain to be convinced that Trump is not working on behalf of the Clintons against the G.O.P. He is apparently considered a good friend of Billary.

    On a related topic – this was linked to from P.C.R.’s site – the machinations of the U.S. deep state.

    How long until the U.K. establishment decides that their smear attacks on Corbyn are not sufficiently effective? An unexpected heart attack while walking on a Scottish mountain? A mysterious suicide with a blunt gardening knife on a Home Counties hillside perhaps? Maybe a ‘lone wolf’ ISIS supporter will pop up unexpectedly at a constituency surgery with a kitchen knife.


  8. JW, great post. Trump isn’t my choice, but a couple points:

    Trump didn’t propose a “ban”. That’s the media spin. He proposed a halt until our elected morons in D.C. figure out what’s going on. The aging of the population is a national security issue for the developed countries, but so is uncontrolled immigration. I guess the idiots figure that having two national security problems is better than having only one.

    Trump’s use of innuendo really bothered me at first. Candidates usually use a staffer to plant the seeds of doubt through a friendly national media contact. Non-establishment Republican candidates don’t have any. Trump is doing his own dirty work in public. Is he just a jerk, or is he sending a message?

    Is Trump’s campaign the establishment’s way of getting the electorate’s anger to vent during the primaries instead of letting it build until the election?


  9. I’m pretty much opposed to bans ! But the Trump ban might be fun for 2 reasons…
    1 – I’m not sure he has expressed any intentions to visit the UK for the foreseeable future.
    2 – If he does decide to visit we find that the UK government has banned POTUS (tee her)

    Good piece John


  10. I hope Assad, with Russia, will insist on visa applications for all those making illegal incursions into Syria. Could be a game changer?


  11. During my forays into the Rabbit Hole yesterday I delved into freemasonry. Once whilst selling my tiny Lada in Saudi a bloke came to me interested in buying it for his trips to the Ras Tanura Lodge. i asked him a few questions about how to join. He asked me two questions. Did I believe in god? i said yes. Did I believe in Brotherhood. Now I wondered how if it is a Brotherhood can ladies such as Margaret thatcher, Angela Merkel and Hilary Clinton be in it. The answer is that thy are Palladian Freemasons which admits women and – out on a limb here – other creeds. If they are all working together ostensibly for good but have been taken over from a higher source which is very bad then we have the reason for endless wars.

    Rethinking Thatcher, much as I loathed her – don’t forget she was only in power as long as “they” wanted her there.

    i think we are in a war – a spiritual war not against Islam but against Satan. By rediscovering our traditions and values of good and bad we will eventually prevail.

    This calls for some Thin Lizzy:


  12. On Syria, the Vineyard of the Saker currently has a chilling article about NATOs true intentions which seems to chime with Osborne’s unguarded comment about removing Assad. The goal is an illegal ‘safe haven’ carved out in Northern Syria to fragment Syria and protect Turkey’s ISIS oil convoys. This would be sold to the world as a RtoP. the Turkmen from Putin’s bombing. The chilling part is the short video of Putin at the end of the article.

    For some reason every time I try to post a link to the site my comment disappears into the aether.


  13. I find it passing strange that while we find it easy to deport Christian ministers with traditional views on homosexuality and now possibly ban a Presidential canditate who has a possible and temporary solution to the problem of importing Jihadi murderers
    we have allowed in hundreds of vile hate spouting Imams.
