So what about the Molotov - Ribbentrop Pact then? It remained in place till June 1941 which, but maybe I am mistaken according to Russian logic, was the early stages of World War II.
The article uses basic spin , so whilst it may be true that they were the only force capable of confronting the Nazi war machine in the early stages, the fact is that..............well, they did no confronting at all.
But I shouldn't be too harsh on the Russians, after all, they are only re-writing their history to suit their politicians, and people in glass houses......................

The globalisation agenda works very well for totalitarian governments and in true Russian communist style, the incentive to combat terrorism is not any sense that it might be wrong, but the lure of that thing that communists always purport to hate - Money!
Yep, informants will be paid for informing on imminent terrorist attacks - and we know how well informing on our neighbours out of fear of greed worked for the Nazis. But lo and behold, the powers of the FSB (or is that the KGB?) will be increased to provide for fines (bribes?) and detentions (for anyone who pisses them off?).
The totalitarian net tightens. Where will it end?

Just watching a 'Come Dine With Me' when the hostess of the evening mentioned Christmas. In a flash, she spun to the camera and asked 'can I say Christmas?'.
Granted she was from Yorkshire, people not known for their backbone, but good grief, she's that shit scared of the PC mob that she has to ask permission to mention Christmas. Would she have done that if she had mentioned Ramadan, I wonder?
Get a backbone, Britain, or accept your role as second class citizens.

Cameron may distance himself from Youngs comments and claim that they are his individual views, yet I've heard Cameron and other coalition ministers use the phrase 'we're all in it together' on several occassions. Now, with the best will in the world, I really don't see how millionaires and overpaid politicians can be 'in it' with those who are thrown out of work. At what point will they be worrying about paying bills or having their houses repossessed (for clarification, Lord Young, if you are unemployed with a mortgage you can't pay it doesn't matter if the interest rate is zero!).
Lets look at some of the other little quirks in the great plan
- They're going to cut the Housing Benefit bill but make social housing landlords raise rent to 80% of market value. Doesn't that mean more housing benefit will need to be paid?
- As thousands of people are being made unemployed, benefits will be cut for those who don't get one of the jobs that aren't there.
- Although there a few jobs to be had, and most are not paying a living wage, and those who don't have one will be expected to pick litter for £1 and hour
And as I've been writing this post, the BBC have just reported that new tenants of social landlords (Housing associations, council housing etc) will be given fixed two year tenancies. At the end of the two years, the landlord will have to assess the tenants income and then, if they are deemed to earn over whatever limit is set, will be given 6 months notice to get out.
So forget sustainable communities - new tenants will have the threat of eviction dangling over them as soon as they arrive, so why care about the community they may shortly be leaving. Forget affordable housing - 80% market rents is not affordable for someone who earns 6 quid an hour. Forget reducing the housing benefit bill - nearly everyone eligible for social housing will not be earning enough to pay market rents (hence the reason they applied for social housing!). Forget downsizing bureaucracy - we'll need to create income checkers and hire many more court bailiffs for the subsequent evictions
And so on............
But Young was partially right. The politicians, bankers and millionaires have never had it so good.

The IMF, ECB and EU mafia are turning up in Ireland for 'talks' about the debt crisis. What this means in real terms is that the organisations set up to protect billionaire bankers, now want to screw more taxpayers money from yet another country to keep afloat the banks that caused the debt crisis in the first place.
Once the banks are safe, then will come the massive cuts, aimed at the working and middle classes, who will be thrown into the world of unemployment statistics, while the bankers continue to pat themselves on the back for screwing so much out of the taxpayer.
Make no mistake, bailing out banks creates more economic misery than if they were left to go bust and it is us that will bear the brunt.
Strange also, that nothing has been heard from the Gruesome Twosome, Adams and Macguinnes, now they've become establishment lackeys. They didn't want to be ruled by Britain but find it ok to hand all Irish finances over to the EU?
More bloody hypocrisy!

So Ireland, for everyones sake, don't accept the EU bailout. When the President of Europe tells you that 'countries need to work together' to secure the future of the Euro just remember what you were told before you joined the Euro. That it was the answer to wealth and prosperity for all, that you could not survive outside Europe, that you needed to be in the Euro for trading purposes, that the EU would stop World War 3 and so on.
Yet just look at where you are now.
But you could do us all a favour. Default on your bonds and persuade Greece and Portugal to do the same. Times would be tough for a while but not as tough as it would be if the Euro collapses after you accept a bailout, and any bailout will come with conditions that will forever remove your independence by putting you in hock for eternity.
So do us all a favour, stuff the EU and may the luck of the Irish be with you.

Now I applaud the reasons for the protest. Why should our brightest be landed with a debt, before leaving university, that will propbably take most of them till they retire to pay off, assuming there will be jobs for them in the first place. It's just more of the population landed in the debt of the bankers, and even the Magna Carta recognised that encouraging debt is wrong.
However, the protest turned violent as it was 'hijacked' by extremists.
As far as I am concerned, once you allow violence into your protest you have lost the argument. The extreme left and right will always try to hijack student protests, but as the hope for the future, students must take control and stop those looking to corrupt their protests with violence.
In other words, do it Gandhi style

The next thing I know Gregg has announced he is standing in the by-election, whenever that will be, and suddenly the phone is ringing off the hook. There are leaflet drafts, post it notes, messages on backs of envelopes and a whole host of other election material cluttering up the dining table and I have a feeling the mess will get worse.
However, the amount of support pledged to help Gregg, from both Libertarian Party members and UKIP (ex and current) activists makes it worthwhile. There seems to be an overwhelming view from all sides that there is no anti/non establishment representation in politics today and the EU rules ever supreme.
There is obvioulsy a link between the amount of support we are getting from Ukippers and the election of Farage as the partys' leader. Most seem to believe it is the end of Ukip and are sickened by it. However, personally I think the result was a good one and that Ukip have not functioned as anything other than a self serving machine for Farage and his greedy sycophants for some time.
Congdon and Batten put up a good fight, but had they been elected, the charade of Ukip wanting to leave the EU would have been maintained to the public while Congdon and Batten would spend all their time fighting off dirty tricks from the Faragistas to protect their euros, leaving them no time to fight off the EU.
So, if Gregg acheives nothing else, he will remain true to the principles of free speech, respresentation of non establishment views and leaving the EU, but remember this Gregg. I am not Mrs Farage, paid £30,000 pa of taxpayers money to do ??????, but an unpaid spouse with a real job, so keep that table tidy or else!
