Despite hating the EU to which he hypocritically got elected to it’s parliament with the intention of bringing it down, he now is in favour of any authoritarian measure to help close our borders – the latest being to sink poor immigrants in their boats and chuck them a liferaft…
Apart from the obvious barbarity, already many people lose their lives in the crossings yet are still prepared to try. One more obstacle, one extra means to a nasty death is surely not going to deter them one iota.
Griffen. Cruel and bird-brained.
The real madness is in voting for him – vote to castrate yourself, that’s what that is.

This video is from an Utah TV News station reporting on the recent FTC clampdown on Google Treasure Chest. Apart from the collapse of the call centre which gave refunds to unhappy people (200 employees is stated, which gives an idea of the scale of the operation), a very interesting thing is to read the comments on the article lower down…
Many are from the call centre operatives who are peeved at losing their jobs. In fact, they can’t see anything beyond the fact that they’ve lost their jobs. One, “Laura“, a “single mom with two kids”, says it’s terrible she’s lost her job and she thought everything was leagul (sic). This stands as stark contrast to other former employees who readily admit they knew what was going on and are still laughing at the people who got suckered.
There’s also the tale of “Brandi“, another “single mom of 3 children” without a job who’s had shedloads of cash whipped from her. Bizarrely, Brandi lives in Utah.
Perhaps Brandi andLaura should meet and discuss the pros and cons of greed?
What I see here in those comments is the Nazi camp guard syndrome of people just following orders. Everyone is blaming everyone else without accepting any personal responsibility and having very low personal morals towards the well-being of their fellow humanity. This is both the scammers, the scammers’ employees and the scammed. Those Utahians criticising the FTC should try and remember that the FTC are just applying the law, decided and voted upon by “THE PEOPLE”. (i.e. “that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth”).
Utah really is a shite place. A bit like Consett.
This is the bit I added to the Utah stuff on Fox13Now:
Pros and Cons – but mainly cons! I first reported on these scammers back in early April – see http://strangelyperfect.tv/3099/google-treasu…
Since then, the scammers have rapidly been modifying their T&Cs, which I’ve dutifully been reporting in later pieces. So @thisisBS is showing a new version of the redtommorrow page – and he knows it, as @Chuck Turner has pointed out!
AS for the call centre lay-offs. Is this true? Will people be able to get refunds? I think people’s best bet is to be lodged into a class action against the scum and to register their names with the FTC to get a share of the $300m that is being claimed back as their “ill-gotten gains” as it says in the charge sheets.
A bigger problem has now been unleashed on the world of course. The google scammers have extensive contacts and shell companies set up in County Durham, UK as well as Gibralter, Phillipines and Cyprus. Although it looks like the heart of the initial explosion of scam filth has been quenched, the shockwave of secondary businesses continues unabated. For evidence of this, just check the junk spam emails in your inboxes….
I get a daily deluge that points back to scam sites with far worse T&Cs than the current redtommorow one in the link above. In fact, they are exactly the same as the Google Treasure Bollox from 3 months ago!
Hey Professor! The Jig is Up!

This morning, PM Gordon Brown told Andrew Marr that he wants to ‘clean up’ parliament.
He wants a ‘code of conduct’ for MPs to follow. The thing is, there’s already a code of conduct – it’s called the law!
All we, ‘the people’ want, is to have reasonable laws and for people to follow them, equally.
Members of Parliament are special. They have special responsibilities. In a nutshell, they represent us in the speaking house, the parler-a-ment. This simple fact makes them special. Within the speaking house they are allowed to say quite derogatory things about each other which in the outside world could be libellous. But this is the nature of the game. This is the special status that exists in Parliament for our representatives so that they can speak without fear or hindrance.
This simple freedom seems to have been forgotten.
Now they must all watch what they say, toe the party line, think of the future and their reputations…… Big Brother watches everything.
Now they think that they need extra-special status and self-justifiably grab whatever beneifits and remunerations they ‘think’ they are due.
This is the show we have now stumbled upon; evading tax, feathered nests and the nepotic practices of a third rate African despot, that is.
From left to right of the ruling classes, they’re greedily identical. Depending on how much wealth they currently have, their aspirations to further wealth naturally vary – but the greed in their minds is the same.
The PM Gordon Brown has said he’s appalled and shocked by the revelations – despite being one of the ringleaders during the information-blocking process! Now, in a further devious twist, in the interview, he’s not-so-subtly trying to shift the focus away from MPs again!
He just can’t stop it, can he? He’s in total denial and his brain is in action debt! Fiddle, fiddle, fiddle. Hide, hide, hide.
So yet another ‘code of conduct’ is supposed to be the panacea! It’s just staggering ineptitude and a total denial of the events in recent financial history where our money systems, all obeying a ‘code of conduct’, all visibly folded. And he wants more of the same?
He says that he,
“…wants a clean-up of all public institutions – such as the NHS and the BBC”
This is the “smoke and mirrors” distraction, which could be all well and good, especially in the champagne-bottle-strewn corridors of the BBC. Unfortunately for Brown, these institutions are already ‘code of conduct’-ed to the gunwales!
We need a Code of Conduct Czar we’ve got so many! Call it OfCodeOfConduct! OfCon for short, with the emphasis on Con.
All changes since 1997 have been a Brown/Blair initiative. This means it’s their idea and their fault. He can’t pass the buck!
Like MPs expenses, the power for change is as directly in his hands now as it always has been, and it’s disingenuous to shift blame again. He’s Prime Minister for fuck’s sake! If he can’t do it, what’s he for?
In fact, it reveals the depths of psychotic deception to which our leader, Gordon Brown, will plummet in a vain quest to change Britain (to what?) before the axe falls on him. He’s frantically grasping at straws, trying to stay afloat in the maelstrom of his own creation and management.
This psychosis means that all his good works (and to be fair, there have been many);minimum wage, better family allowances, better health service, 12 week operation wait, new hospitals, better child care, rail electrification etc; they are all as nought.
They’ve been completely cancelled out by the institutionalised corrupt practices at all levels of society under his watch.
Most will inevitably be rolled back by some future government, disguised as part of a ‘wider process of reform’, as they’ll say.
And if this future government is a bunch of Nazis then we’re in big do-dos.
Because the bad things that Brown & Blair have started – e.g.
the police state
shoot to kill
war on terror
arrest and detention without trial for indefinite periods
lies to further a war
massive reliance on databases and their subsequent loss!
…many of these won’t be rolled back. It’s that chip-chip away at freedom. Eventually when it’s all gone, then there’ll be a realisation. And if we don’t fall into the Maelstrom, there’ll be a bloodbath in it’s place…
What Must be Done?
Sack people who are incompetent with minimum compensation. This means No Payment For Failure. Make sure that this applies to politicians and all hitherto cushioned leaders, business or otherwise. It’s what 99% of the population have to endure. Enforce this by passage of a “Corrupt Payments and Bonus Law”.
Pass a law to retrospectively get money off the corrupt and incompetant bankers. This is what we’d do in the fight against organised crime. It’s what we do against dole-scroungers who’ve abused the system. This is what we do against tax-evaders. It’s the same thing – Just do it!
No more Codes of Conduct. Make proper, morally clear, enforceable law.
An end to all priviledge. Equal treatment under the law and one law for everyone.
Use the army to get our money back from Tax Havens. Give them something useful to do instead of propping up heroin production in Afghanistan… It’s our money that’s been siphoned off – go and get it. We won’t need an ‘International Banking Code of Conduct’ for the future. I mean, what would little Cayman, Bermuda and Lichenstein really do if a troop from Norton Manor Camp pull up at the front door of the ****** Bank Of ***** and ask for all our money back? If the army can’t do that and protect the wealth of our nation, then retire them.
News Items The only news item missing is that from a premiership football club at the wrong end of the league regarding the future employment status of it’s manager… There have been two news items in the UK today that must surely have everyone either rolling their eyes in the air, or laughing down their...
The pope says sorry for getting it wrong over the holocaust and the nutty bishop The bankers say sorry for getting it wrong with their greedy decisions that lead to the current economic crisis Cricket captains say sorry for losing some games US car maker bosses say sorry for being crap UK Politicians say sorry...
Two items in the news concurrently today, and when I saw them, for each one the phrase that popped into my head was;
Well that’s the Pot calling the Kettle Black!
Firstly: The Pope warns of the Misuse of Religion
Here, the pope has made a speech in an Amman mosque, and yes, it’s all in the title really… he argued that religion was a force for good, but its “manipulation” caused divisions and even violence.
The trouble is that both he, his position, his catholic religion, the Christian religion of which it’s part and the religion of Islam to whom he was speaking – they’ve all got ‘form’ as Sergeant lewis would say. (see news here.)
Secondly: Russia warns against ‘Adventures’
At the May parade commemorating the Russian victory (or more correctly, Stalin’s victory) over Nazi Germany, Russian President Dmitri Medvedev has issued a stern warning to any countries considering what he called “military adventures”.
Yay Dmitri. Like the Pope, Lewis would say that you (both yourself, your current government and your Russian state) have both recent and historical ‘form’ in this matter of invasion. (see news article here)
As with everything, it’s the old story of power and control. The fact that various adjectives over the ages are used to describe power and control, e.g. religion & ideology, is immaterial. It all boils down to power and control, specifically so that those in charge of the ‘religion’ or ‘ideology’ can have a comfortable life living off the efforts of others, acquiring possessions, status and better mating potential.
And if you are going to pull me up on the last bit and the Pope, then don’t.

Tony Blair to get US Medal of Freedom ..is one of today’s news items. This is given personally by the US President and is supposed to be the highest civilian award in that country. One would expect it to be for people that work towards freedom as it’s a kind-of in the name sort-of-a-thing… So...
