A great documentary.
AUSTRALIANS have been refused insurance protection because of their genetic make-up, researchers have shown in the first study in the world to provide proof of genetic discrimination.
Most cases were found to relate to life insurance. In one instance, a man with a faulty gene linked to a greater risk of breast and prostate cancer was denied income protection and trauma insurance that would have let him claim if he developed other forms of cancer.
The findings have led to renewed calls by experts for policies to ensure the appropriate use of genetic test results by the insurance industry.
The director of the Centre for Genetics Education at Royal North Shore Hospital, Kristine Barlow-Stewart, said the research also showed consumers needed to be better informed about their rights.
“Eighty-five per cent of the people in the study didn’t know where to go to seek assistance if they had been discriminated against,” she said.
Associate Professor Barlow-Stewart and her colleagues surveyed more than 1000 people who had attended clinical genetic services about their experiences of discrimination.
In a long, complex process that was only possible because of the assistance of organisations and companies that had carried out the discrimination, the researchers were able to verify 11 cases of genetic discrimination, and their results are published in the journal Genetics in Medicine.
Isn’t corporate-state centralisation of your information wonderful…
More than 1,300 schoolgirls have experienced adverse reactions to the controversial cervical cancer jab.
Doctors have reported that girls aged just 12 and 13 have suffered paralysis, suffered convulsions and sight problems after being given the vaccine.
Dozens were described as having pain ‘in extremity’ while others suffered from nausea, muscle weakness, fever, dizziness and numbness.
The vaccine is being given to girls under a Government programme to prevent women from developing cervical cancer. Ministers say it will ultimately save 700 lives a year.
I am not surprised at this at all. Why? Because I have researched it.
From everybodys favourite Marxist scumbag.
Harriet Harman was caught up in a row today over whether women will suffer most in the recession.
The Equality Minister claimed in the Commons yesterday that women were worrying more than men about the economic crisis.
As usual from a feminist, she makes a claim about women’s ‘feelings’ and states it like an actual fact. The ONS begs to differ however;
But her views were undermined today by figures from the Office for National Statistics and a Cambridge University study.
The ONS claimed the economic downturn ‘impacted less’ on working women than on men. It stressed that estimates showed fewer women than men had lost their job.
The redundancy rate for women was 6.6 in 1,000 employees in the three months to December, compared with 13.6 for men.
Who needs ‘feelings’ when you have facts.
Ms Harman vowed in the debate in Parliament that women would not be allowed to become the ‘victims of the recession’.
We are all affected by a recession (unless you work in the public sector). This sexist totalitarian pig needs to stop trying to destroy the nations’ males (a vital part of destroying any country) and do the honourable thing.
Throw herself off of a bloody cliff.
Lots of these ‘accidents‘ happening in labs these days…
The company that released contaminated flu virus material from a plant in Austria confirmed Friday that the experimental product contained live H5N1 avian flu viruses.
And an official of the World Health Organization’s European operation said the body is closely monitoring the investigation into the events that took place at Baxter International’s research facility in Orth-Donau, Austria.
“At this juncture we are confident in saying that public health and occupational risk is minimal at present,” medical officer Roberta Andraghetti said from Copenhagen, Denmark.
“But what remains unanswered are the circumstances surrounding the incident in the Baxter facility in Orth-Donau.”
The contaminated product, a mix of H3N2 seasonal flu viruses and unlabelled H5N1 viruses, was supplied to an Austrian research company. The Austrian firm, Avir Green Hills Biotechnology, then sent portions of it to sub-contractors in the Czech Republic, Slovenia and Germany.
The contamination incident, which is being investigated by the four European countries, came to light when the subcontractor in the Czech Republic inoculated ferrets with the product and they died. Ferrets shouldn’t die from exposure to human H3N2 flu viruses.
Public health authorities concerned about what has been described as a “serious error” on Baxter’s part have assumed the death of the ferrets meant the H5N1 virus in the product was live. But the company, Baxter International Inc., has been parsimonious about the amount of information it has released about the event.
On Friday, the company’s director of global bioscience communications confirmed what scientists have suspected.
“It was live,” Christopher Bona said in an email.
Well nevermind what they put in the vaccines, you just smile and say ‘yes please’ when your wonderful masters tell you to get injected ‘to protect you’.
URGENT WARNING: H5N1 DNA in Flu Vaccine – Video
You must admit, vaccinations are an ideal vector to distribute pathogens and other deadly agents to a cattle population.
Plan to vaccinate babies against drugs: Babies could be vaccinated with brain-altering chemicals to stop them getting hooked on drugs and cigarettes in later life.
Newborns would have jabs which could prevent addiction to cocaine, heroin or tobacco, under secret Downing Street plans.
Think of the children indeed…
Oh by the way, if you think I’m being paranoid… Of course I’m being bloody paranoid. You have to realise, if this crap ever gets into your body, you’re probably f**ked. By then you would have wished you were ‘paranoid’. Or to put it another way, if you know there was a chance that one of these countless vaccines they want to stick in your child could be contaminated with a weaponized bird flu, meningitis or some crap (above and beyond what they already put in it) would you let your kids be injected with it anyway?
No, I wouldn’t either. Be cautious, not sorry.
Similar to the plans afoot in the United States, to turn the Army on its people and impose totalitarianism.
Please read this, from PJC Journal.
In a stunning conversation with a friend, who is a serving member of the Armed Forces, over the weekend, it was revealed that transfers to regiments and other units in the UK on home duties are being undertaken by the MOD based upon whether an individual was prepared to ‘open fire’ on UK citizens during civil disturbances.
I found this long and extracted conversation to be both bizarre and frightening. I will state at this point that he is someone that I have known for years, and trust implicitly. The fact that service personnel are actually being asked in special briefing sessions whether they would fire on their own nationals indicates that the rumours about the Army being put on standby are indeed very true.
Note, that this is the same Choudary scumbag who states that ‘only Muslims are innocents’ (Killing of Non-Muslims is Legitimate) and hot on the heels of Geert Wilders being banned for wanting to speak honestly about Islam.
“The startling move comes just days after processions celebrating St George were banned for being racist” and “despite a previous demonstration in which some of his supporters chanted: ‘Bomb the UK.'” All in the name of “diversity.”
“Hate preacher get OK to run sharia law demo,” by Tom Savage and Ross Kaniuk for the Daily Star, February 28:
HATE preacher Anjem Choudary will march in London today calling for Britain to adopt Islamic Sharia law.The startling move comes just days after processions celebrating St George were banned for being racist.
Choudary was given the green light yesterday despite a previous demonstration in which some of his supporters chanted: “Bomb the UK”.
Publicity for the march, in the East End, carries 41-year-old Choudary’s personal mobile number and says the aim of the campaign is to “emulate the Prophet and his companions, by calling for Islam and speaking out against the oppression of man-made law”.
Bet Choudary can’t wait till his band of muhajirun becomes strong enough, so they can begin emulating Muhammad’s Medinan phase, that is, full blown jihad — complete with British plunder and concubines. Too bad for him, though: he probably has to wait a few more years for that to be possible.
It says that Britain is full of “disbelievers” who are involved in prostitution, gambling, alcoholism and worshipping other gods.The publicity says women are welcome to join the march but they must walk at the back of the procession as “strict segregation will be enforced”.
The demo comes 18 months after three of Choudary’s supporters were jailed for soliciting murder in a London protest against cartoons of the prophet Mohammed published in Denmark.
That was when some demonstrators chanted “Bomb the UK” and “Europe, you will pay with your blood”. Organiser Choudary was fined.
Today’s march won permission after a council withdrew funding for a St George’s Day parade in the Midlands – on the grounds that it was “racist”.
Parade founder Mark Cowles, 40, of West Bromwich, said yesterday: “I can’t believe Choudary’s event can go ahead.
“The British establishment is trying to take away the British voice but other cultures choose to force their way of life on us.”
UPDATE (from Robert Spencer): This march took place as scheduled. Pamela has details and video here.
Omar Bakri, the radical cleric banned from Britain, has addressed a conference at a primary school in London in which he called for the country to become an Islamic state.
This should come as no surprise to those who have read an earlier article of mine, Harriet (femscum) Harman still wants to discriminate against white men.
Minority groups will get extra help in a bid to shield them from unemployment and the economic downturn, a minister has vowed.
Ethnic minorities, women, older people and the disabled will not be ‘left behind’ during the recession, Work and Pensions Secretary James Purnell will pledge.
In a speech to Labour’s Black Asian and Minority Ethnic conference in Leicester today, Mr Purnell will say vulnerable groups were hit hardest by unemployment during previous recessions and will vow to prevent this from happening again.
He is expected to announce that the Government will work with the Equality and Human Rights Commission to look at whether ‘at risk’ groups were disproportionately affected by job cuts.
‘In the past, too many were left behind in bad times,’ Mr Purnell will say.
‘Ethnic minority workers suffered most in the Tory recessions,’ he told The Independent.
‘Just think of the waste of human potential. Whole communities were abandoned.
‘Families where no one then worked for generations. Unemployment among older workers was deeper and more prolonged … And we squandered the talents of a generation of disabled people – left at home, a life on benefits with literally no help or support.’
Mr Purnell said thousands of people who were ethnic minorities, older workers and the disabled had suffered.
‘Over half a million were pushed on to incapacity benefit and forgotten about,’ he said.
‘But, as much as the Tories might have wanted them to, they didn’t just disappear. We still bear the scars of those decisions in so many communities and households today.
‘In this recession, evidence so far is that its effects … are being spread across the population more evenly. But we will not take any chances.’
In the past year, the female employment rate has fallen by 0.3 percentage points, compared to the male unemployment rate which has fallen by 1.0 percentage point.
Reminds me of this article I read a while back from the Sunday Express, How the government has declared war on white English people. It also reminds of the mission the government has to destroy British culture and identity, which is part of a much bigger, international plan, the One World Government, as mentioned by the FT; And now for a world government, an important section is the following;
The financial crisis and climate change are pushing national governments towards global solutions, even in countries such as China and the US that are traditionally fierce guardians of national sovereignty.
Then these quotes;
“The threat of environmental crisis will be the ‘international disaster key’ that will unlock the New World Order.” — Mikhail Gorbachev (Monetary & Economic Review, 1996, p. 5)
“We must establish a new world order based on justice, on equity, and on peace.” – Fidel Castro United Nations 1979
“Our overriding environmental challenge tonight is the worldwide problem of climate change, global warming, the gathering crisis that requires worldwide action.” – President William Clinton State of the Union Address 1998
“We are moving toward a new world order, the world of communism. We shall never turn off that road.” – Mikhail Gorbachev 1987
“Two centuries ago our forefathers brought forth a new nation; now we must join with others to bring forth a new world order.” – The Declaration of Interdependence 1976
“National Socialism will use its own revolution for establishing of a new worldorder.” – Adolph Hitler during World War II
“Our nation is uniquely endowed to play a creative and decisive role in the new order which is taking form around us.” – Henry Kissinger Seattle Post Intelligence 1975
And if you are wondering who are doing this…
“We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.” – David Rockefeller Baden-Baden, Germany 1991
Britain’s head is on the chopping block, apparently, a necessary sacrifice for the financial oligarchy’s plan for the global socialist dictatorship.
Surveillance video released in an assault case against a King County, Wash. sheriff’s deputy shows him kicking a young girl, slamming her to the jail cell floor and striking her repeatedly. The deputy has pleaded not guilty in case. (Feb. 27) – Associated Press
This is what happens when you give bullies and scumbags a badge and a gun. Now imagine this happening in Britain, and then imagine you not being allowed to capture it on video or photos because the government has made it illegal to do so.
Everyone is ‘equal’ under communism, didn’t ya know…
For generations of young footballers, being soundly thrashed by a rival team has been a tough, if character-building, rite of passage.
But the days of double-digit goal tallies may be numbered.
Some officials want the Football Association to introduce a so-called ‘mercy rule’ in youth soccer.
An import from the United Socialist States, the rule means that if one team achieves a certain goal advantage over another the match is declared over, thus sparing the losers further humiliation.
Supporters claim such a move would prevent youngsters from becoming prematurely disillusioned with the beautiful game.
But critics insist it will also deprive them of a vital life skill: Dealing with utter defeat.
But that is what the state wants, a generation of people incapable of dealing with anything. That way you’ll run to the state for help with everything, thus putting them in the position of your ‘keeper’. Everyone who lives in the real world knows that getting your butt whooped at a game is a humiliating experience (especially if it is playing Soul Calibur 2 and its by your bloody girlfriend who just button bashes and Perfects you, and then goes on about it for ages and ages and bloody ages, telling all your mates about it and… well nevermind). Just makes you want to get even. In the game I mean.
The Mid Lincolnshire League is calling on the FA to bring in rules which would mean that if a nine-goal gap opened up between teams, then the game would stop.
Ron Westerman, chairman of the Mid Lincs Youth League, in which more than 6,000 children aged up to 13 play in 400 teams, said: ‘We’d not be taking away victory or defeat, merely lessening its severity. Scorelines of 25-0 don’t do anyone any favours, especially at age eight to ten.
‘We’ve asked the FA to consider bringing this in nationwide, but at the moment it’s just one of many things up for consultation.’
Come on. Who only wants to beat the other team a little bit? You want to crush their morale, shatter their confidence, and generally let them know that they suck. That’s the FUN!
The rule already operates unofficially in Devon’s Pioneer youth league. Now both counties want the FA to adopt the idea more widely, saying it will encourage more youngsters to enjoy the game.
But sceptics believe such measures merely provide a politically correct comfort blanket for children against the realities of the wider world.
Robert Whelan, deputy director of think-tank Civitas, said: ‘We’re being over-protective with youngsters but doing them no favours. It’s a symptom of a society that wants to protect the young from anything unpleasant at all costs.
Molly coddling it’s called. It encourages infantilism and dependence on the entity doing the nannying. Reminds me of those ‘eaters’ who live to feed their significant other, fattening them up like you wouldn’t believe so they become completely incapable of doing things for themselves.
‘But the fact is that life can sometimes be unpleasant and you don’t always win – and sometimes you lose by a big margin.
‘Life throws down challenges to you, and sometimes it lays you flat on your back, but you have to learn to pick yourself up again, and you won’t develop that spirit if no one ever allows you to lose.’
Indeed. But that spirit would be tantamount to competition wouldn’t it, and we know the state doesn’t like that.
Tory MP Julian Brazier described the idea as ‘terribly sad’, adding: ‘How can you really appreciate a fantastic win, if you’ve never experienced a crushing defeat?’
But Devon FA chief executive Paul Morrison said: ‘People talk about defeats being character building, but children are more vulnerable these days and we don’t want to put them off playing the game because they are thrashed.
No they bloody aren’t. It is the adults that are more vunerable, and projecting that nonsense onto the children. Defeat is part and parcel of life. Typical socialist agenda, drag down the highest achievers, using the others’ feelings as an excuse, and with no trailblazers to set the bar, how much damage do you think that will do to the development of these kids.
‘A women’s team I know lost 42-0 one Saturday, and within three weeks they’d disbanded. These days it should be about enjoyment and player development, rather than winning at all costs.’
Obviously these women couldn’t handle defeat, that’s their problem (42-nil HAHAHAHA) not the rest of the football league. What next? Teams that get hammered taking the better team to court and seeking damages for ‘hurt self-esteem?’
Terrorism is the systematic use of terror (imposing fear), especially as a means of coercion.
Common definitions of terrorism refer only to those acts which (1) are intended to create fear (terror), (2) are perpetrated for an ideological goal (as opposed to a materialistic goal or a lone attack), and (3) deliberately target (or disregard the safety of) non-combatants. Some definitions also include acts of unlawful violence or war.
Which one of these has been worse for Britain and YOU.
DNA samples taken from 1.1million children are being held on an ever expanding government database.
The figures, revealed yesterday, show that 1.09million DNA profiles of people aged under 18 were held on the database with 337,000 under 16.
The Metropolitan Police has added the largest number of profiles to the register including 117,000 boys and 33,000 girls.
The new figures come as it was claimed ministers are sneaking sweeping powers to collect and retain more DNA samples.
The Tories said the Government was attempting to give itself a ‘blank cheque’ to store swabs and fingerprints of criminals and those cleared of wrongdoing.
They claim Labour is trying to expand the amount of biometric data they store without subjecting the controversial plan to full Parliamentary scrutiny.
Jacqui Smith has been forced to reassess the UK’s national database after European judges said it was unlawful for police to keep the records of innocent citizens.
Nearly one million people who were arrested for recordable offences but later acquitted or not charged hoped to have their samples deleted as a result of last December’s ruling.
The Home Secretary announced that she would publish a response to the court’s decision that holding swabs indefinitely was a breach of human rights.
The details of about 4.5million people are held on the database yet one in five – including 40,000 children – has never been charged with an offence.
But we are all all guilty till proven innocent now aren’t we? This is how the police can throw people in a cell based on an allegation, and no actual proof.
Pertaining specifically to the outlawing of any criticism of Islam. Whether it is true or not is irrelevant.
Exclusive Japanese scientists have made a dramatic break with the UN and Western-backed hypothesis of climate change in a new report from its Energy Commission.
Three of the five researchers disagree with the UN’s IPCC view that recent warming is primarily the consequence of man-made industrial emissions of greenhouse gases. Remarkably, the subtle and nuanced language typical in such reports has been set aside.
One of the five contributors compares computer climate modelling to ancient astrology. Others castigate the paucity of the US ground temperature data set used to support the hypothesis, and declare that the unambiguous warming trend from the mid-part of the 20th Century has ceased.
The report by Japan Society of Energy and Resources (JSER) is astonishing rebuke to international pressure, and a vote of confidence in Japan’s native marine and astronomical research. Publicly-funded science in the West uniformly backs the hypothesis that industrial influence is primarily responsible for climate change, although fissures have appeared recently. Only one of the five top Japanese scientists commissioned here concurs with the man-made global warming hypothesis.
JSER is the academic society representing scientists from the energy and resource fields, and acts as a government advisory panel. The report appeared last month but has received curiously little attention. So The Register commissioned a translation of the document – the first to appear in the West in any form. Below you’ll find some of the key findings – but first, a summary.
Oh yeah, just blindly trust the government, right? EDIT: The original article now says 60,000 recalled.
Safety fears over contaminated batches of meningitis C vaccine tonight led to thousands of doses being recalled.
The alert was sounded after tests found traces of the bug Staphylococcus aureus – which can potentially cause blood poisoning – in supplies of vaccine sent to the UK.
Up to 20,000 doses, delivered to GP surgeries and health clinics in the last month are affected, but it is not yet known how many have been given to babies.
The vaccine, sold under the trade name Menjugate, was manufactured and packed by Novartis in Italy.
About 60,000 doses are being recalled, of which one-third had already been distributed to GPs.
Government health chiefs said the recall was a ‘precautionary measure’ and no adverse reactions have been recorded in children in Britain.
This reminds me of when Bayer sold millions of dollars worth of an injectable blood-clotting medicine — Factor VIII concentrate, intended for hemophiliacs — to Asian, Latin American, and some European countries in the mid-1980s, although they knew that it was tainted with AIDS.
That is the problem with vaccines, apart from the fact that it is a completely unnatural way to build immunity. Any poisons or toxic substances introduced into the vaccine will definitely be introduced into the recipients, and there are a million ways of distorting the criteria for connecting reactions to vaccines so ‘officially’ the number would be low.
Just try telling that to families whose children have been damaged by them. Remember, people don’t live longer because of vaccines, they live longer because of healthy eating, sanitation and living conditions. But if everyone thought like that Big Pharma wouldn’t make the billions they do then, would they?
Something that doesn’t exist is being promoted via the media. Why? Well for me, it is just another problem-reaction-solution. Get protests going, get agent provocateurs involved to escalate the situation, bring the Army onto British soil and use the Civil Contingencies Act to cancel elections and establish a dictatorship. Note the propaganda in this piece.
More than a third of voters believe the Army will have to be brought in to deal with a “summer of rage” on British streets as the recession bites, a poll showed.
They never polled me. Where did this poll come from?
The widespread fear of serious unrest was disclosed as a senior police officer warned activists were planning unrest and could find rioters easier to recruit because of the credit crunch.
Superintendent David Hartshorn, who heads the Metropolitan Police’s public order branch, said known activists were planning a return to the streets centred on April’s G20 summit of world leaders in London.
And intelligence shows they may be able to call on more “footsoldiers” than normal due to the unprecedented conditions – which have led to youth violence in Greece and mass protests elsewhere in Europe.
Um, yes, where they had cops dressed up as ‘activists’ and burn and smash stuff up. Allegedly this has happened in the UK recently, and here is a quote from the former Italian president regarding dealing with student protests; “use agent provocateurs to start riots and then have the police “beat the shit out of the protesters”
YouGov polling for Prospect magazine found 37% thought such “serious social unrest in several British cities” was certain or likely – although a slim majority (51%) disagreed.
That isn’t a slim majority, and we have no details regarding numbers polled, their loyalties etc, so the poll doesn’t really mean much, it does however offer an opportunity to sway public opinion by claiming to represent it
And a clear majority (64%) also favoured forcing the under-25s to do a year of full-time, modestly-paid community service such as working with the sick and elderly or helping with environmental projects.
Riiiight, like Obama’s youth core? No that isn’t socialist at all is it.
Labour MP Frank Field told Prospect the main political parties should join forces to develop the idea. He said: “The time has come to look at this idea. A new bipartisan commission should be established to look into how it could be done, perhaps led by figures as respected as David Blunkett or David Davis.”
Although the biggest support for a compulsory scheme was among the older generations, a majority of 18-30 year olds (52%) also gave it their backing.
So… They want to take taxpayers money, and expand the state even more by employing the young to serve the government. Fuck off.
Gordon Brown‘s spokesman said: “The Prime Minister’s view on this is that of course he understands people’s concerns and he also understands that people are angry, for example about the behaviour of some of the banks. That’s why he is absolutely determined that the Government does everything possible to deal with those concerns and help people and businesses get through what is a global recession.”
Yes but people are mainly pissed off at the government, at these greedy self centered wankers and their complete lack of care for the People or the principles of freedom. The actions of the government has precipitated this disgusting state of affairs, the goal of which has always been to destroy Britain as a sovereign nation, permanently, as per the instruction of their Bilderberger masters and their plans for a one world socialist dictatorship government. Remember, this wasn’t incompetence or whatever excuses they want to spew. It was calculated.
This from John Redwood’s Diary
Now the government is taking more than half our incomes
The government’s stealth taxes have slowly but surely taken more of our incomes. Tax Freedom has crept later, from May into June.
Now the UK government takes financial responsibility for a very large bank with a medium sized government attached, Tax Freedom Day will advance still later, beyond the half way point of the year.
Rejoice Comrades, Utopia is just over the horizon!
The state must be rolled back, and freedom returned to the people, or your children will enjoy being property of corporate robber barons via the state.
