The BBC, the State Broadcaster, the 'Ministry of Truth' is reviled by a minority who resent paying 145.50 pounds pa for having lies of commission and omission beamed to the UK and the world.
Its propaganda underpins the monarchy, imperial war, capital, the corporations, Mount Zion and the status quo. The list is much longer. It was shown to have allowed only 3% of broadcasting time to humans who opposed the looming genocidal war on Iraq. Instead it used gigawatts to bring the poison of Perle, Wolfowitz, Edelman, Blair and a very long list of fellow psychopaths onto our screens.
The pro-Zionist stance of the BBC, the ZBC, is obvious in every hour of its broadcasts and on most of its numerous outlets. The rage against this is expressed in letters of complaint to this Ministry of Truth. We learn that most of these are 'outsourced' to one or two private companies. One is Tempero which has a long list of 'clients' for which it does the lying or absorption. One such is the NHS. And every thing in the UK is now outsourced in this hollow, illusory democracy. The complaint is reiterated to the complainant and not one thing changes.
The most recent outrage was 'Death on the Med', presented by the efficient pro-Zionist propagandist, Ms Jane Corben. It almost portrayed the massacre of 9 Turkish 'humanitarians' as being self inflicted. The massive and lethal naval/commando force of the Zionist entity was painted a peaceful green. The protests have been loud and many, but nothing will change. The hasbara outfits, like BICOM in the UK, have rubbed their hands.
I will attempt to be brief because I know you have to work hard to get a good paper out. You know from previous e-mails that I have been unhappy about several things. It is not egotism which finally prompts me to write but the knowledge that the Morning Star is exactly that, truth amidst the capitalist and imperial mire.
It was about 8 years ago I met Roger Fletcher on a march when I heard about the MS. I have taken the paper since then, contributed to it and helped it in every possible way. I see there are 67 links to my name on the MS web site and an article, which jars a bit now for its metaphors, is relevant to the further stage in the evisceration of the NHS announced yesterday http://www.morningstaronline.co.uk/index.php/news/content/view/full/23042
But things have changed a bit in the last year or so. The editorial responses to my input are of much lesser importance.
a. whether you conveyed my concerns urgently to HMG having first received them on 24 May? In that letter I said 'We demand that it resists the threatened and armed obstruction of that flotilla in all lawful ways, including the provision of a UK naval escort, as it passes from international waters into those off the 25 mile long Gaza strip.' If HMG had taken a robust line there would not be 19 corpses in morgues and dozens of injured in hospital. As a surgeon and healer I am outraged by the loss of life arising from the subservient silence of the government.
b. Whether any UK subject, or subject with dual UK/Israeli nationality, took part in the assault force?
Six Londonderry men and seven teenagers were shot dead by soldiers of the British Parachute Regiment on Sunday 30 January 1972. Five of the wounded were shot in the back. The Widgery Tribunal was convened rapidly. The dead and wounded had been in a march with over 7000 people protesting against internment without trial. The Widgery Tribunal was appointed under the Tribunals of Inquiry (Evidence) Act 1921.
Lord Chief Justice Widgery held a preliminary hearing two weeks after the murders and reported in April. (1) He said that if the march, which had been banned by the British authorities along with all public demonstrations, had not taken place there would not have been any deaths. By the same token, if British army rifles had not been fired there would have been no casualties. Furthermore, he stated 'There is no reason to suppose that the soldiers would have opened fire if they had not been fired upon first," he said. This lie did not run but it limped.
SDLP MP John Hume said his conclusions were a "whitewash" and called for his resignation. The results of the inquiry were rejected by Republican people who began a long campaign for a fresh investigation. In August 1973 an inquest jury returned an open verdict on the 14 people who had died. The coroner, Major Hubert O'Neill, accused the British army of "sheer unadulterated murder". Brave humans tower above the Lilliputian in man's descent. The Saville Inquiry started in 1998 and its very long report is published this week.
Flotilla vessels from Eire, Sweden, Greece and Turkey to Gaza. UK citizens on board. Humanitarian purposes writing paper, medical supplies, cement etc etc AND to break the illegal siege of Gaza which punishes all 1.5 million citizens.

Dear Mr Stride,
We have corresponded about Palestine before. Congratulations on your election in this new constituency.
I write on behalf of the Dove and Dolphin Charity which I founded with a voyage to Palestine in February 2003. We concern ourselves with the welfare of children in particular but our work becomes ever more difficult because of the barriers to entry and exit that are erected by Israel, or at its behest.
We urge that HMG treats any obstruction of the flotilla that is bound for Gaza with humanitarian cargoes as a gross breach of international law. We demand that it resists the threatened and armed obstruction of that flotilla in all lawful ways, including the provision of a UK naval escort, as it passes from international waters into those off the 25 mile long Gaza strip.
"Truth has to be repeated constantly, because Error also is being preached all the time, and not just by a few, but by the multitude. In the Press and Encyclopaedias, in Schools and Universities, everywhere Error holds sway, feeling happy and comfortable in the knowledge of having Majority on its side."
A Quotation From: The NHS Dismantled
In his report to the Conservative Party’s Economic Reconstruction Group in 1977, Nicholas Ridley wrote that:
"...denationalisation should not be attempted by frontal attack but by preparation for return to the private sector by stealth. We should first pass legislation to destroy the public sector monopolies. We might also need to take power to sell assets. Secondly, we should fragment the industries as far as possible and set up the units as separate profit centres."
