From time to time an interesting article comes my way, so I have decided to share a selection on this page.
I should say that views expressed here do not necessarily reflect the views of the Branch, or even of UKIP.
The common factor is that the views highlighted here tend to express dissatisfaction with some aspect of the ways in which we are currently governed. They are included because we all from time to time need to challenge our lazy assumptions about the world we inhabit. Could some of those assumptions be wrong? If so, should we worry?
We are mindful of the saying that all that is necessary for evil to triumph is that good men should look the other way (various attributions). We believe that you are also.
(11/07/2019) British company Reckitt Benckiser has agreed to pay "up to US$1.4 Billion to end the US federal investigation into the marketing of an opiod addiction treatment" by Invidior (lately "demerged" from RB) .
This begs a couple of questions . . .
a) Do they have something to hide? Must be pretty big to warrant such expenditure!
b) Is justice served by allowing a criminal investigation to be effectively bought off, or does this amount to the collusion of the investigating authorities in hiding the true activities of the Company from the public?
which in turn begs another question:
c) Why is seemingly nobody asking the above two questions?
Go figure . . .
(30/05/2019) This article from medium.com debunks the latest effort by those in the media who should know better to describe those who are concerned about the safety of 5G as "having fallen under the spell of RT". If in doubt, shoot the messenger . . .
(24/05/2019) The ills of the world (and the USA) from the horse's mouth.

Some onward links seem to have been closed down, make of that what you will.
This site has neither medical nor first-hand knowledge to assess or otherwise judge the effectiveness of GcMAF or to comment on any of the claims made in the video or on the sites linked. We feature this content because of the enormous implications should some or all of the claims made prove over time to be accurate.
We suggest that you verify for yourself and form your own viewpoint, which may simply be to acknowledge the possibilities. Certainty is as always elusive.
(23/05/2019) This article is by a financial technical analyst, who makes his living by analyzing the fiancial charts and getting people to subscribe to his articles. His advice in not inexpensive (but this article is free to view).
Obviously the recent antics of the world's central banks have a considerable effect on the valuations that pertain in the world's various financial markets, so there is considerable overlap between financial matters and world politics.
His analysis makes interesting reading. If you are one of those who still consider that thinking such as this can be dismissed as "conspiracy theory" and therefore the product of a paranoid mind, ask yourself two questions:
a) Since conspiracies to obtain power and wealth have been the very stuff of history ever since man first began to assemble into competing tribes, why now, when the prizes to be played for are on a gargantuan global scale, do I think that conspiracies are now a thing of the past?
b) If conspiracies are not after all a thing of the past, what evidence can I cite to indicate that the assertions put forward by this article are wrong?
(26/04/2019) Collective Evolution report on a lawsuit that alleges sins of omission by the U.S. Department of Justice in relation to evidence that was allegedly not considered:
"The Facts: The Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, and 9/11 victim family members have announced a joint federal lawsuit against U.S. Department of Justice for not acknowledging evidence about what happened on 9/11"
Are chickens about to come home to roost, or is this the final fling of a discredited conspiracy theory? We watch and wait.
(17/04/2019) Julian Assange as we may all recall originally sought refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy in order to avoid being taken to Sweden for questioning on "sex charges".
Now he has (at long last) been extracted from the Ecuadorian embassy and is reportedly facing extradition to the United States. The Guardian has the story here (who says mainstream journalism is dead?). So was the original move to send him to Sweden "for questioning" really just a ploy to allow Sweden rather than the UK to take the rap for handing him over to the Americans?
For a more complete review of the Assange situation, follow this link. It makes for interesting reading.
(16/04/2019) This article in the American Conservative highlights how the monetary regime that we all take for granted these days is probably illegal and may be due a correction. How that would that play out is anybody's guess.
(30/03/2019) If you have heard that smart meters may not be all the are cracked up to be by the energy companies, watch this video from Stop Smart Meters (UK) (lecture delivered at the Glastonbury Symposium - home of all unconventional thinkers . . .) and judge for yourself:
Alan Craig is the UKIP spokesman for Families and Children. It would be good to have a less polarised discussion that might actually be a debate, but I suppose that would not be regarded as good copy in these confrontational times.
I came across this serious but light-hearted look at the impact of living with a "smart" home . . . Coming to a home of yours soon - enjoy!
Another article on the perils of 5G. This one goes into some technicalities on the ways is which EMF (electro- magnetic frequencies) can affect our cells. The little safety testing that does seem to have been done has assumed that harmful effects would only result from the heating effect of this radiation, but that assumption is highly suspect.
Since 5G is being rolled out world-wide with great determination, we owe it to ourselves to make absolutely sure that it is being done with safety concerns as the highest priority. If most reports are to be believed, it is not.
See below for more references relating to 5G.
It may be from across the pond but it highlights our very own BBC . . . one of their producers has seen the light and more to the point, has gone public. I wish him well, but fear for his job prospects.
(11/02/2019) Those of us who are worried by the direction that our NHS has taken over the past years will be interested in this video. There is plenty more for those who would like to investigate this topic further - I suggest this link. For more, go to www.youtube.com and search for "privatisation of NHS by stealth".
(03/02/2019) Whilst we do use this page to highlight controversial matters that tend not to be given much space elsewhere, it's nice to be able to link to an article that challenges our usual thinking without laying blame at any particular quarter. Collective Evolution report on a Japanese study that asks some pertinent questions about how we live today, and perhaps also offers some interesting possible avenues to explore. Are we so conditioned by our lifestyle that we would reject such ideas out of hand?
This is a question that has been rumbling ever since the MMR vaccine first hit the headlines, prompting the medical establishment to issue vehement denials of untoward safety issues.
Now we find reports of a lawsuit in the USA alleging outright fraud on the part of a major drug company. Read the reports and judge for yourself. Also read this report (especially if you are, or intend to become, pregnant).
As ever with these things, bear in mind that it is not possible for most of us to know the whole truth for certain - there are simply too many variables. We can only determine our version of the truth after reading the reports of others and applying critical thinking and good sense - the conclusion may simply be that there is enough doubt raised that we should be cautious about uncritically accepting the advice proffered by our institutional experts.
The question that we should ask ourselves is how the down-side risks compare with the upside probability of gain, and have eiher of these been adequately investigated and assessed? Sadly the answers to these questions require too much technical time and knowledge for most of us, so we must either trust the experts or check whether we can find any serious reports indicating the contrarian view.
(27/01/2019) It has come to something when the Police prefer to pursue "hate incidents" rather than actual crimes. "Sargon of Akkad" takes a recent incident apart:
UN Declaration of Human Rights 1948 Article 19
The Guardian 16 February 2015
"Freedom only to speak inoffensively is not worth having" The Guardian 24 JUly 1999
Well actually no, this is about pre-5G wireless communications (4G 3G etc), 5G may be worse as the higher frequencies used imply that radiation power levels will be higher . . .
The first video is of a lecture given in Dec 2015 at the University of Melbourne:
The next comes from a lady who describes herself as a "cutting edge Truther". She doesn't just rant on, she also includes clips from those who ought to know:
My summary from these and other sources (see earlier posts below) is that 5G seems to be being rolled out worldwide just as fast as the indutrialists can, without any serious safety checks on the health of those who will be affected (just about the entire world population) and ignoring the warnings of those who believe that very serious health issues will result. Ought we to be worried?
(07/01/2019) "Adults in the Room" is the title of the book in which Yanis Varoufakis recounts the story of the Greek government's negotiations with the EU and the IMF over the Greek bail-outs. It's an unmissable read if you want to know how the EU really works, but happily for those who would rather read the gist rather than the detail, the Campaign for an Independent Britain have published a one-web-page summary by Ambassador Leonidas Chrysanthopoulos of the techniques used to secure the Greek surrender. Read and marvel.
(06/01/2019) A very controversial and widely-used chemical weed-killer.
How damaging is it? Should we be worried? Can we avoid it?
(05/01/2019) The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation is an international organization founded in 1969, consisting of 57 member states, with a collective population of over 1.8 billion as of 2015 of which the majority are Muslim majority countries (Wikipedia).
The (90 minute!) video below (courtesy of the American Centre for Security Policy) seeks to explain the significance of the OIC that you have never heard of, and how it seems to be working. It deals with the effects over the pond but I think it resonates on this side of the water also. It has clearly been around for about 6 years, so no doubt events have moved along a bit since it was recorded.
As always, make up your own mind based on the evidence.
(01/01/2019) And not just of interest to left-leaning persons. This is a wide-ranging discussion of the EU today: how we got here, how it works, how it doesn't work, and where we go from here. Highly recommended.
