At odds with erstwhile allies

Dear Editor

I noticed Bob Moran’s image of Benjamin Netanyahu (which Kathy mentioned last week) and cringed, before deleting it and (I think) unsubscribing in disgust. It’s been strange finding I’m distancing myself from sources with whom I shared so much insight regarding Ukraine (Mearsheimer et al) and covid (Bob et al), who’ve apparently found it easy to pile in on Israel in one-sided fashion. Whatever may or may not be said about that conflict, it shouldn’t be said with broad brush strokes, like ‘genocide’ etc.

Blair’s second coming?

Dear Editor

Since the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change seems to be growing in its influence, how much could it have over a future Labour government under Starmer?

The magical thinking of Lord Cameron

Dear Editor

I am appalled by the foreign secretary Lord Cameron’s magical thinking concerning Israel and the Palestinian Arabs. There are fundamental reasons why it is at present impossible to negotiate peace between the parties, and why we should not recognise a Palestinian state at this time.

Hamas and other Islamist groups which seek the destruction of Israel and the genocide of its Jewish citizens still enjoy substantial, probably majority, support amongst the Palestinian population. The priority for these groups is the destruction of Israel, not the consolation prize of a Palestinian state.

The Iranian regime continues to finance, arm and organise these groups. Until there is regime change in Tehran, the terror organisations will always have sponsorship and strategic depth.

If we want peace in the Middle East and a viable future for the Palestinians, the priority must be to undermine the Iranian regime and counter its actions throughout the region and beyond. Also, we must start to ensure that in future Western aid is not diverted to funding the terrorists.

More doubts over covid ‘vaccine’

Dear Editor

Regarding Professor Angus Dalgleish’s articles on the resurgence of cancer, can it be only coincidental that pseudouridine synthase 7 is highly associated with poor cancer prognosis, and that the artificial mRNA used in the genetic injections for covid had the uracil 
replaced completely by pseudouridine?

Not only was the spike protein code synthetic, so was the ‘alien’ RNA
used to create it.

J Tumilty

Professor Dalgleish replies: ‘I did see this in my research diligence so I can confirm the writer has a very good point.’

What does ‘earn’ mean? 

Dear Editor

I am sick of reading articles and comments which refer to the ridiculous amounts of money being paid to too many ‘high-income’ individuals as having been ‘earned’. 

People who work long hours for little reward often earn their money, such as it is. 

Others, including but not only, so-called ‘celebrities’/effluencers (not influencers)/politicians and senior business people (this latter pair all too often doing nothing but employ ‘consultants’ to do the jobs they get paid for) have huge amounts of money thrown at them for very few hours occupation and even less useful output. 

So please, everyone, reserve the use of the word ‘earn’ for the (seemingly fewer each year) people who actually work for their money!

No excuse for MPs’ wilful ignorance on covid

Dear Editor,

Conservative MP Danny Kruger has written the afterword to a book from UsForThem titled The Accountability Deficit. 

He writes that for a year he trusted the experts and voted for everything that ministers put in front of him. To be fair to Kruger, he does concede that Parliament failed, but the evidence was in front of him and all the other MPs who did as the party told them. They chose not to look; ignored the awkward fact that Parliament had been sidelined; did not note the absence of evidence to justify Johnson’s ‘Emergency’; accepted the daily stage show claiming hundreds of deaths and ignored the Do Not Resuscitate notices being issued without permission and the consumption of two years’ worth of midolazam in as many months which supplied those statistics; they cheerfully accepted anything that appeared in the House of Commons library and rejected any other sources; asked no questions such as: if the virus was as deadly as claimed, how could delivery and shop workers continue to appear at their stations?; they remained silent about so-called VIP lanes for potential suppliers. Did they question the various visits by Bill Gates to Downing Street despite his complete lack of medical qualifications? Why did they circle the wagons when Partygate emerged?

The list is endless and their failure continues. How did their party leader, who at the beginning of his Premiership complained that a PM’s salary did not meet his numerous child support payments, once ousted from public office afford a multi-million pound mansion? Nearly all these MPs, once the so-called ‘Conservative’ party has been decimated in the forthcoming election, will enjoy a pension which is the envy of ordinary people.

Theresa May was not warning the party about being known as the ‘Nasty Party’ – she was making a mission statement.

The US role in covid’s origin

Dear Editor,

Whether WhatsApp messages were deleted or not is definitely not the most vital question in the Covid Inquiry in London or Edinburgh. The essential question has been barred: what was the origin of the virus? 

The mainstream answer is that it came from bats. Really? Bats have been fluttering about in China and elsewhere for many millions of years. 

However, the US Department of Defense has not. With an annual budget of $51.7billion dollars and more than 800 bases far from America, it still managed to fund the Eco Health Alliance with $2million to have research carried out at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Reuters, however, reported in July last year that the US Department of Health and Human Services had barred any further funding to Wuhan. Why was that?

The US military have been exploring biological warfare ever since they took the main movers and shakers of Imperial Japan’s Unit 731 under their protection in 1945 to gain the secrets of their most inhumane experiments using biological poisons and death experiments. Unit 731 dropped bombs laden with killer viruses on China during the Second World War.

Nearly three years ago Senator Rand Paul said: ‘The US has been collaborating with Shi Zhengli of the Wuhan Virology Institute, sharing discoveries about how to create super viruses.’

Surely with all the intelligence tools at governments’ disposal we could have by now answers about the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the American connection?

BBC licence is a ‘priority debt’

Dear Editor

January is notoriously a bad month for debts and financial crises. I noted this helpful piece on the BBC website on January 18,  headed: ‘January debt: What should I pay first and what can I do?’ It said: ‘What steps should I take first? Consumer advice charity Citizens Advice says that you should work out how much you owe, who to, and how much you need to pay each month. Identify your most urgent financial demands. There are what are known as priority debts and bills because there can be serious consequences if you do not pay them, such as losing your home or facing court proceedings. They should be paid first. They include rent, mortgage repayments, and loans secured on the home, gas and electricity bills, child support and maintenance payments, council tax, income tax, VAT and other taxes, TV licence payments, court fines and payments.’  (my emphasis)

So pay that telly tax, whether you watch the BBC or not. That’s before buying your family’s food and clothing.

I also looked up the actual Citizens Advice (CA) press release. From their website I found this

‘TV Licence Payments: This is a priority debt because you could be fined by the magistrate’s court if you watch TV without a licence . . . If you have the money but choose not to pay a court fine, you could be sent to prison. You won’t go to prison if you can show you can’t pay.’

Of course, the BBC licence fee is enforced by the criminal justice system.
