Slept short last Friday - of course. Just missed 'Sailing By' - a peaceful, synthetic music lullaby, the best of the BBC. Shipping forecast - recalling the exquisite science of meteorology, the skills of the merchant marine and the courage of fisher folk.
Woke to World Service, funded still by the execrable FCO, 'The Real Story'. Excellent. Ecological scientists patched in from Norway, Germany, Spain, Britain and the US - Richard Roberts Nobel what? the stain. The most informative and stolid - Doug Parr, Chief Scientist of Greenpeace.
Then the switch at 5.20am BST to the black propaganda. Houthi 'rebels' withdrawing from the 3 ports - Hadeida + as per a peace agreement forged in December!! No mention of £4+billion BAe arms sales to the current decapitators of 47 dissident voices. A UN woman spokesman - in tune with prop. But later, the great uplift. A black bird's song at dawn -
Dear Mr Stourton,
I am addressing you in your journalistic role on this most beautiful day in AD 2019. I have in mind your need for the oft quoted 'balance' and for corroboration by a second. Sue and me are fortunate, on this edge of Dartmoor, to have helped Nature grow a garden in keeping with this day. The sun is lighting the beeches and, on the spur of the moment, we are opening it to passing humans.
Our brothers and sisters in Gaza, where I have been ten times, live under the same sun but are on the cross. Although now just 79, but with the same energy, I am barred by the Zionist entity from standing at the foot of that cross, some 80 miles from the original, in Gaza. ** Barred because I was one of sixteen humans without one bullet between us on MV Dignity ** which was rammed (attached) by one of three gun boats 66 miles off Haifa in the dark and in stiff seas 30-12-08. Just a speck of its destructive urge. The intention (I always look to the intention) was to drown every one of us - 'Muslim', 'Christian', atheist or Christian Atheist like me. The first words of the ramming captain over the FM radio (another was responsible for focusing a search light on our hull) - 'You are Terrorists'. We had enough spirit to want to join our fellows suffering yet another convulsion of killing by the unlawful entity. Unlawful by UNGA Resolution 194 and by its relentless, pitiless and lethal treatment of the native people. Thus I cannot continue the Voyage of the Dove and the Dolphin ** which, with the same spirit, began 1-02-03.
I have digressed but with reason. I cannot check the facts because, although I 'registered' with the BBC months ago, I cannot enter the BBC web site. I get only Mr Graham Norton but not his dirty innuendos you broadcast.
The world tilts on its axis. Now my letter to Mel Stride MP and later to Mr Hunt at the Foreign Office
Dear Mr Stride MP,
I had an 'automatic' reply to the e-mail I sent you pleading for Her Majesty's ''Government'' to support the UN Commission of Inquiry into the shooting of thousands of Palestinian humans by snipers of the Israeli Occupation Force. There was a further bit of digital technology in the way of an 'automatic' reply, when with your silence, I sent the e-mail on to Mr Hunt with this preface below. As expected, he did not reply either. Many in the British political class want mayhem, and have zero concern for mothers and babies being shredded by 'Europeans' - as in Yemen with BAe 'guided' bombs. You and Hunt, and many others like Johnson of 'topple Assad' are beyond the pale (shades of Eastern Europe.)
Preface to Hunt, whose focus for destructive urges has moved from OUR NHS (many letters to you from me) to the abroad.
FAO The Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt MP Secretary of State for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office
Dear Mr Hunt,
I sent this letter below to my MP Mr Mel Stride. I have had the usual 'automatic' response. It attempts to synthesise the causes of the terrible suffering of the Palestinians who now have only 2% of Palestine under their 'sole control'. Myself, with many others, are pleading that HMG responds fairly to the UN Commission of Inquiry into the unlawful and inhumane responses of the Israeli High Command to the protesters taking part in the Great March of Return.
Dear Mr Woolvin,
You might be restrained in responding to me by your editor or the 'rules'.
The only truthful way of telling this story was to add 'an aim which was shared by the British Government under Mrs May.'
Being within the BBC bubble, you might think its broadcasting is benign. It is the opposite. A good example is the recent BBC output on McCain, helping to ramp up the cruel imperialist wars of the USA in which the UK almost always plays poodle. This article spells it out well by my friend Finian Cunningham.
The BBC consistently reports with bias on Palestine, showing little fairness towards the crucified native people. I have had much to do with the Palestinian people whose suffering is not told by the media here, nor the context.
The BBC reports daily on what I call our societal disintegration. Today it is the outrageous lack of specialist maths and physics teachers in particular, and in 'disadvantaged' areas.
15th May 2018
The Baroness Chakrabarti CBE
Dear Lady Chakrabarti,
I heard via the BBC that you wished the Labour Party to expel Ken Livingstone for speaking of a connection between the Zionist Project and the Third Reich. This man has spoken up for the Palestinian people in their place on the cross, but I know of no instance where he has expressed anti-Jewish urges. In speaking of the de facto Israeli state, he might have said that state, and the prior Zionist Project, is the fount of that terrible and habitual cruelty starting well before the nakba - a euphemism. * He will know what is happening at the borders of the Gaza concentration camp, complete with watchtowers, and in the other two remnants of Palestine. He will feel even greater concern with the daily holocausts ** ***, culminating in the murder of 58 Palestinians yesterday, including 4 children, and the many hundreds of wounded, some of which will come to amputation. There is ample evidence that 'expanding bullets' are being used by the Israeli Occupation Force snipers, thus causing devastating wounds.
