Tory manifesto sneaked out on Sunday – against Gypsies and Travellers: The Conservatives are being accused of preparing to criminalise Gypsies and travellers under “racist” plans to make trespass illegal. Changes to the law on trespass, which is currently a civil offence, were signalled in the party’s general election manifesto, which pledged: “We will tackle unauthorised traveller camps.” The document outlines plans to give police new powers to arrest and seize “the property and vehicles of trespassers who set up unauthorised encampments, in order to protect our communities”. It could be the biggest crackdown on Gypsies and travellers by any government.
Queen to retire in 18 months; Prince Charles is preparing to take over leadership of the Royals when the Queen turns 95, it has been reported. The Queen’s oldest son met with his father at Sandringham yesterday to discuss the continuing fallout from his brother’s disastrous TV interview about his links to Jeffry Epstein. Prince Charles’ key role in ‘retiring’ Prince Andrew from public life has fed speculation he is preparing to become ‘shadow King’, which would see him control day-to-day royal affairs while his mother remains monarch.

There is talk among courtiers that she may use the milestone to allow her son to become Prince Regent, Prince Andrew retire for good;

Julian Assange’s persecution politically motivated: US efforts to extradite Julian Assange akin to rendition, WikiLeaks editor says. Kristinn Hrafnsson argues case sets ‘dangerous precedent’ for press freedom internationally. The circumstances in which Britain’s then attorney general advised that it would be lawful for the UK to invade Iraq were “far from satisfactory”, the official UK inquiry into the Iraq war has concluded. The report, led by Sir John Chilcot, found that Lord Goldsmith relied on a one-paragraph memo from Tony Blair himself when he issued his controversial legal advice that a second UN Security Council resolution authorising use of force was not required. Why did they drop charges against Catherine?
How power really works; could we get away with another illegal war? NATOs 70th Summit: BBC WS report by Jonathan Beale – Macron says NATO ‘strategically brain dead’; History of NATO: “SS Oberstgruppenfuhrer Paul Hausser (seen here as an Obergruppenfuhrer while commanding the Das Reich division in Russia winter 1941) was unquestionably the ablest military commander in the Waffen SS.

Bormann famous quote – ‘Education is dangerous’: Every Educated Person is a Future Enemy’ Martin Bormann is considered by many as “the shadow man”. Whatever one may say about this nickname, it is partially correct. Bormann almost never showed up in public; yet his power within the Third Reich was considerable. From April 12th, 1943 onwards, Martin Bormann was Adolf Hitler’s personal secretary. He was always in Hitler’s vicinity and some even consider Bormann the second most powerful man within the Third Reich. In this article a biography of this man will be presented and an attempt is made to discover how vast his power really was. – ‘The Slavs are to work for us. Insofar as we do not need them, they may die. Therefore, compulsory vaccination and German health service are superfluous. The fertility of the Slavs is undesirable. They may use contraceptives or practice abortion, the more the better. Education is dangerous. It is enough if they can count up to one hundred. At best an education which produces useful coolies for us is admissible. Every educated person is a future enemy.’
