Werritty accused of anti-Iran plot

Posted by seumasach on October 19, 2011

The exposure of Werrity fits in, then, with the moves against the Murdoch press in that it is consistent with the marginalization of pro-Zionist elements within ruling circles.

Peter Mandelson- Shadow Prime Minister

Posted by seumasach on August 2, 2009

Behing Jeckyll, the respectable facade of British democracy lies Hyde the oligarchy’s  deep state, its all-pervasive networks. Private armies, private intelligence agencies, think tanks, COBRA- the other shadow cabinet and, here, the shadowy, shadow prime minister-  Peter Mandelson.

ANDOVER , MASS. (Sept. 13)— President Bush’s conduct in office has precipitated a “most serious constitutional crisis,” “one that has already transformed the U.S. from a constitutional republic to an elected monarchy,” a noted political scientist told a conference on seeking prosecution of high Bush administration officials for war crimes. “We need to revers[e] a fifty-year trend towards unaccountable secret government, which can commit crimes with impunity,” said Professor Christopher Pyle of Mount Holyoke College.
