We can make this a better country with UKIP. I run a science fiction bookshop in Glasgow (which partly explains my enthusiasm for human progress). Married to Hazel. Living in Woodlands. My father was Eastwood candidate for the Liberals. I spoke at LibDem conference in support of nuclear power, against illegal wars, for economic freedom and was the only person to speak directly against introducing the smoking ban. I was expelled, charged with economic liberalism. In 2007 I stood as the 9% Growth Party for economic freedom and cheap (nuclear) electricity. I am still proud of that manifesto - if vfollowed we would not have rising electricity bills and would be 80% better off with 7 years of 9% growth.
- UKIP is the only party opposed to Scotland having the most expensive "Climate Change Act" in the world; only party that wants us out of the EU - only part of the world economy still in recession - the rest is growing at an average of nearly 6% a year; only party opposed to effectively unlimited immigration; committed to growing our economy by the only way it can be done Economic Freedom + Cheap Energy; we offer referenda as a basic citizen right, as Switzerland and California do. --- Neil Craig

Ukraine - NATO/EU Anti-Democratic & Pushing For A Fight


Ukraine: this isn’t a revolution – it’s regime change

Let’s call a spade a spade: Western politicians have usurped an elected leader.

Even in this era of rampant political spin and platitudes, where George Orwell’s claim that political language is used and abused to ‘make lies sound truthful and murder respectable’ has never been truer, the commentary on Ukraine stands out for its dishonesty. Western observers tell us there has been a revolution in that benighted nation. They claim revolutionaries have overthrown a dictator. They say the people of Ukraine have risen up and deposed their despot, and are now ‘experiencing the intense emotions expressed so eloquently by Thomas Paine in 1776 [in his writings on the American War of Independence]’. It is hard to remember the last time political language was so thoroughly used to obfuscate reality, to impose inappropriate historical narratives on to a messy modern-day event. For what we have in Ukraine is not revolution, but regime change, set in motion far more by the machinations of Western politicians than by the stone-throwing of Ukrainians.

   Says Brendan O'Neill on Spiked  I commented and got supportive comments

It isn't just, or even primarily, western "mediation" in terms of verbal pressure.

It is $5 bn admitted by the US government to have been spent by them on funding hooligans, thugs, rioters and terrorists or "democracy awareness raising programmes" and presumably at least the same again from the assorted EU countries

If somebody gave Millwall supporters $1 million to occupy Parliament square it would get occupied. Why should Ukrainians be different?
WASHINGTON (AP) — Ukraine may well be the geopolitical prize nobody can afford to win http://www.mail.com/int/news/us/2677510-facing-collapse-ukraine-costly-prize-west.html#.1258-stage-hero1-10
  • neilcraig - Marvellous comment by you exposing a truly chilling possible reality - scary
 And she is right, at least in the first part. This is not being done because our leaders are remotely interested in democracy (here or in Ukraine or Syria or Saudi Arabia), nor because there is anything to be gained by NATO owning Ukraine, which there obviously isn't, but because they can. And because it is always useful to have an external enemy to concentrate the people's minds on.

   But these idiots are playing with fire. This has all the feel of drawing lines in the sand, that intersect, that led to WW1 fought over the right to decide the fate of Serbia. Nobody expected that would devolve into such a destructive European war and everybody wanted to make the other guy back down.

    The only good news is that, despite the militaristic propaganda and censorship of the BBC & the rest of the media that follow them, online comments, both here and in the US, show a significant majority aren't buying any more.
