Covid-19 and the Political Utility of Fear 537

The true mortality rate of covid-19 remains a matter of intense dispute, but it is undoubtedly true that a false public impression was given by the very high percentage of deaths among those who were tested positive, at the time when it was impossible to get tested unless you were seriously ill (or a member of society’s “elite”). When only […]

Britain’s secret state and the need for whistle-blowing

Who defines national security? In its own small way, my case illustrates the conflict and tensions around the issue of “national security”. I would argue that the Iraq war was not only against our national security but has been catastrophic for global security as a whole.  In fact, Lord Goldsmiths’ own legal advice at the time (prior to him changing […]

I’m Pro-Brexit But I Won’t Date British Men

Brexit. I’m for it. Immigration I’m for it. And I have damn good reasons for adopting both positions. Oh yes. Come with me, reader, and I’ll square this circle for you. I’m a Leftist. But unlike all these lily-livered, soft-left/liberal, hand-wringing, virtue-signalling, Guardian reading remoaners (I prefer The Morning Star and independent media which doesn’t cheerlead for illegal oil wars) […]

UK blacklists the Declassified News Website over Yemen coverage: Council of Europe Issues Press Freedom Alert

Censorship concerns are mounting in Britain after the Council of Europe issued a level-two press freedom alert over a UK Ministry of Defence decision to blacklist Declassified UK, a military and foreign policy news website. Declassified UK discovered on 25 August that had it had been blacklisted by the MOD because of its coverage of the war in Yemen. It had just submitted a request […]

Masters and Slaves

Some people say they are going to obey whatever the Government tells them to do because they care about the vulnerable in our society and want to protect them. I am one of those deemed vulnerable having an underlying co-morbidity and I have had my letters from the NHS advising me how to stay safe. This is all quite comical […]

Black Lives? Palestinian Lives? You Don’t Have to Choose

Over a decade ago, in 2009, I was on a protest at Scotland Yard about the death of Sean Rigg, left to die on the floor of Brixton police station. His family was there; Lowkey, best known for his fight for justice for the Palestinians, was there performing in the street one of his brilliant, incisive, truth-telling raps. No-one there […]

Virus of Mass Destruction

Note: BSNews is co-edited by myself, Alison Banville, and Mike Raddie. Any posts on Covid-19 represent our individual views. A further note on this particular post – a friend of ours being treated for Covid-19 has reported he suffered blood-clots as a complication. There comes a point in the introduction of every new official narrative when people no longer remember […]

Boris, Covid and The NHS: The Unvarnished Truth

Boris Johnson. A man who has lived his entire life recklessly, selfishly, irresponsibly; without any regard for the consequences. Because he’s never needed to. His enormous privilege has protected him from any repercussions. He is a proven pathological liar, swaggering through the years with no empathy or concern for anyone but himself. Indeed, recently bragging about shaking hands with Corona […]

Craig Murray: How It Starts

The brevity of this post is out of proportion to the enormous importance of the subject. But I want to let you know I am thinking and working on it. It is a recognised pattern for dictatorship to commence with emergency measures designed to combat a threat. Those emergency measures then become normalised and people exercising arbitrary power find it […]

The Assange Hearing: A Reticent Request

Julian Assange will stand next week in the armoured dock, accused of the “crime” of publishing. It is worth recalling that Wikileaks has a 100% record of accuracy. Nothing it has published has ever been shown to be inauthentic. Julian stands accused of the crime of telling the truth – more than that, of telling freely to the ordinary people […]
