David Cameron and Prince William Named In FIFA Corruption Report

27 June 2017

Former UK Prime Minister and Tory [Conservative] Party Leader David Cameron and William Saxe-Coburg-Gotha aka Prince William have been named in a FIFA corruption report as being involved in a potential bid to rig the voting process in an attempt to help secure the 2018 Soccer World Cup.

The 2014 report by FIFA ethics chief investigator Michael Garcia, which was leaked overnight to a German newspaper, details strong evidence that David Cameron and Prince William played a leading role in potential corrupt practices to secure the World Cup for the UK. The report also details improper payments from the Australia FFA led by Westfield owner and former Ukraine based oligarch Frank Lowy.

The former prime minister and Prince William were at a meeting during which a vote-swapping deal between England and South Korea was discussed, according to an official report released Tuesday night.

The long-awaited Fifa report has disclosed the lengths to which England’s football bosses went to court Fifa executives, many of them now discredited, as they sought to secure votes for England’s 2018 bid.

At one point officials discussed the possibility of arranging a meeting with the Queen for one Fifa representative whose vote could have helped England.

The Fifa report reveals how Mr Cameron asked the South Korean delegation to back England’s bid, only to be told that England would have to agree to reciprocate by pledging support for South Korea’s bid to host the 2022 tournament.

Such a vote-swapping deal, the report concluded, would have been in “violation of the anti-collusion rules”.

The report, written in 2014 by Fifa’s then chief ethics investigator Michael Garcia, details how England bid officials interacted with Fifa officials in the run up to the vote.

It discloses how they were asked to bestow an honorary knighthood and arrange an audience with the Queen for one South American official.

England 2018 officials arranged work at Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur football clubs for the “adopted son” of one official.

They even considered a request by the same official, the Trinidad and Tobago Fifa vice-president Jack Warner, to have his hometown twinned with an “English village” according to the report. The FA offered Burton upon Trent, in Staffordshire, as a potential twin town.

The report discloses how Mr Cameron met Fifa vice president Mong-Joon Chung of South Korea in Prince William’s suite at the Baur au lac Hotel in Zurich on the eve of the vote in December 2010.

South Korea was bidding to stage the 2022 World Cup which was also being decided at the same time.

“The Prime Minister asked Mr Chung to vote for England’s bid, and Mr Chung responded that he would if Mr [Geoff] Thompson [chairman of England’s bid] voted for Korea,” states the report based on evidence provided by the English delegation.

The Queen is also named in the report after it emerged that FA chiefs met with a senior Fifa official in 2009 who asked for an audience with the monarch.

It is alleged that Nicolas Leoz, president of the South American Football Confederation, suggested the possibility of an honorary knighthood.

In the meeting with Lord Triesman, the then FA chairman, it is alleged that Dr Leoz said, “that he believed that a knighthood from the United Kingdom would be appropriate”.

Andy Anson, chief executive of England 2018, the company behind the English FA bid, told investigators he recalled officials “said to me that it would be nice if at some point Dr Leoz would get to meet the Queen.”

England 2018 officials, recognising the difficulty of arranging an honorary knighthood, instead discussed “creating a FA Disability Cup” that “could be named after him”. Subsequently officials questioned whether naming a trophy in his honour was “big enough” inducement to gain Dr Leoz’s support.

Cameron‘s bullsh*t on tax dodging‘ – Harry Leslie Smith

7 April 2016

WWII veteran and social justice campaigner @Harryslaststand is firing with both barrels at David Cameron over the Panama Papers tax dodging scandal, his own dodging questions about the family offshore trust, and his govt’s tough talk.

Not only the British government in Gibraltar and elsewhere, and the Luxembourg government; also the Dutch government helps corporate tax dodging.

Translated from Trouw daily in the Netherlands:

The Netherlands concealed tax deals

Jan Kleinnijenhuis- 6:03, April 5, 2017

Ministers kept agreements with multinational corporations secret from other European countries.

The Dutch junior ministers Wijn (2004), Weekers (2011) and Wiebes (2015) have agreed to make controversial tax deals with multinational corporations, without notifying other European countries of that. Finance officials warned internally for years about the possible consequences of those agreements, according to internal documents released last week. However, the scheme was not adjusted. This is remarkable, since the Netherlands had promised in 2003 to share information about these deals in Europe.

The controversial agreements enable corporations to pay no taxes on large parts of their profits. The Netherlands thus harms other countries, but makes itself an attractive location for multinationals.

The Dutch government also did not inform parliament about this.

Britain’s Cameron’s Libya war, parody song


This 20 September parody music video from Britain about the 2011 war on Libya is called SnoutKast – “Lib Ya!”

The song is a parody of the song by OutKastHey Ya!

The image in this video depicts British former Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron and the dead pig Mr Cameron is said by a fellow Conservative to have had sexual intercourse with as an initiation ritual of an élite student society.

The name Snoutkast in the parody title refers to that dead pig‘s snout.

The lyrics are:

Great Britain don’t mess around when there’s a mad dictator making crazy threats
Let’s go in all guns blazing with the Royal Navy and the RAF
Might leave a power vacuum but I’ve no time for coherent strategy
Just bomb them to the stone age and with luck you should be home in time for tea

Lib ya!

I think I get it, yeah I think I get it – the rebels took Benghazi and Gaddafi will kill them all
We get together with France and America, and bomb the crap out of ‘em so his regime will fall
They say we’ve made erroneous assumptions, that airstrikes, that airstrikes, that airstrikes
That airstrikes aren’t in our interests
So why oh why oh why oh why oh why oh are we still in denial when we say it’s not about the gold dinar?

Lib ya!
(Don’t wanna meet Gaddafi, just wanna take Benghazi)
Lib ya!
(Don’t wanna meet Muammar, just following Obama)
I’m not being honest

Alright now, chaps (yeah!)
What’s crueller than being ruled? (ISIS!)
I can’t hear you! I said what’s crueller than being ruled? (ISIS!)
Shiite, shiite, shiite, shiite, shiite
Now, okay, shiites – you gotta join up with the Iraqi forces and go fight those militant extremist groups!
(Yeah!)
I wanna see you all on your baddest behaviour! We’ll lend you some weapons, it’s like a favour
Here we go! Alright, now…

Fucked it, fucked it, fucked it, fucked it, fucked it like we did in Iraq
Fucked it, fucked it, fucked it, fucked it like I did with that…oink!

The decision of a British parliamentary foreign affairs committee to apportion responsibility for the destruction or Libya and its transformation from a functioning into a failed state to former British prime minister David Cameron further confirms the verdict reached by Irish revolutionary leader James Connolly over a century ago when it comes to the British ruling class. “Their crimes,” Connolly said, “would shame all the devils in hell”: here.

British ex-Prime Minister Cameron and dead pig, parody song


This 19 September 2016 satiric music video from Britain is called UB4Cameron – “Dead Dead Swine”.

The song is a parody of the song “Red red wine” by British band UB40.

The lyrics are:

Dead, dead swine
Only the head
I can’t forget how I seeded that sow

Dead, dead swine
It’s like the EU
I made a right cock-up
And there’s a photo
Apparently there’s a photo

At the time, I was in my prime
And I don’t mean Minister
I was young and full of spunk
And things turned quite sinister

Dead, dead swine
I had no choice
Initiation ritual
They stood to applaud my pork sword

I was desperate to join
Their exclusive dining club
So I placed it on my groin
And gave it a damn good scrub

Dead, dead swine
Did what I had to do
So they’d let me into
Their merry band
I thought of England

‘Sh*t Show’: Obama blames Cameron & Sarkozy for ‘mess’ in post-Gaddafi Libya

11 March 2016

US President Barack Obama has blamed UK Prime Minister David Cameron and other European leaders for the current chaos in Libya, saying he had ‘more faith’ in them being invested in the follow-up, given Libya’s proximity.

MPs condemn Cameron for ‘opportunistic’ Libya assault

Wednesday 14th September 2016

A SCATHING report by MPs published today slams David Cameron’s “opportunist” and “inadequate” plan to launch a bombing campaign in Libya.

The former prime minister turned the Nato-backed intervention of 2011, which was supposedly to protect civilians, into an “opportunist policy of regime change” based on inadequate intelligence and failed to develop a “coherent Libya strategy,” the foreign affairs committee said.

Its inquiry found the government based its decision on “erroneous assumptions,” failing to properly analysis of the nature of the revolt against former dictator Colonel Muammar Gadaffi or how extremists would try to benefit from it.

The UK’s actions in Libya were part of an ill-conceived intervention, the results of which are still playing out today”, said committee chairman Crispin Blunt.

Libya is currently plagued by a civil war among two governments both claiming responsibility over the country and its natural resources, a situation which is allowing armed fanatics such as Islamic State (Isis) to gain ground.

Stop the War Coalition convener Lindsey German said: “The foreign affairs committee has underlined what those of us in the anti-war movement argued five years ago: this was a war for regime change, not to protect civilians.”

The committee’s findings reflect experts’ opinions on the legality of the intervention.

Research by the University of Oslo found that while operations to protect civilians were authoritised by a UN resolution, those aiming to overthrow Gadaffi and support rebels constituted “an illegal use of force” which “may have undermined the credibility of the responsibility to protect in future humanitarian crises.”

British Conservative David Cameron, buh bye!


This parody song from Britain is about then British Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron, when he negiotated with European Union bureaucrat Donald Tusk, about making the European Union still more anti-worker and thus more acceptable to British fat cats. The melody is from ‘We can work it out‘ by The Beatles.

The lyrics are:

The Bullingdon Beatles (feat. Donald Tusk) – “We Can Thrash It Out”

28 August 2016

David Cameron: Try to see it my way, I’d like to stay in the EU and reform it from within
Donald Tusk: Try to see it our way, we cannot be seen to back down or to give in
Together: We can thrash it out, we can thrash it out

David Cameron: Think of migrant workers, they should get no in-work benefits for the first four years
Donald Tusk: There would be murder! But if you’d like to gradually phase them in, then we’re all ears
Together: We can thrash it out, we can thrash it out

A week in politics is a long time, so let’s bring these negotiations to an end
I get that you’re taking a hardline, but I will ask EU once again

David Cameron: Think of immigration, we would like new powers for deportation and the like
Donald Tusk: I get what you’re saying, take these token concessions and run along, you tyke!
Together: We can thrash it out, we can thrash it out

A week in politics is a long time, so let’s bring these negotiations to an end
I get that you’re taking a hard line, but I will ask EU once again

David Cameron: Try to see it my way, ever closer union is not something we seek
Donald Tusk: My way or the highway! But if you like we can give existing treaties a little tweak
Together: We can thrash it out, we can thrash it out

Quitter Cameron leaves trail of toxicity

Tuesday 13th September 2016

DAVID CAMERON stood down as MP for Witney yesterday, triggering a by-election in the Oxfordshire seat.

Mr Cameron told the chairman of his Conservative Association and constituency agent before making the announcement, two months after he quit as prime minister in the wake of Brexit.

He said: “The circumstances of my resignation as prime minister and the realities of modern politics make it very difficult to continue on the back benches without the risk of becoming a diversion to the important decisions that lie ahead for my successor in Downing Street and the government.”

Unison general secretary Dave Prentis said: “David Cameron led us into a referendum he didn’t want and then lost. He walked away from the country in June and now he’s done the same to his constituents.

“He will be remembered as the prime minister who presided over massive cuts to vital public services … A toxic legacy.”

British Conservative Cameron wants resignation of Labourite Corbyn


David Cameron's head, cartoon

From British daily The Independent today:

David Cameron tells Jeremy Corbyn to resign as Labour leader ‘for heaven’s sake’

Many religious (and not so religious) people will say that Cameron should have left Heaven out of his party politics.

What is new about this? Not much really.

Any Conservative Prime Minister would always like it if the Labour opposition leader would go away, and the Labour party would be in trouble.

More yet … Cameron is not any Conservative Prime Minister. He has announced his resignation and is now politically a walking dead man.

His Conservative party is in chaos, while in its smoke-filled backrooms there is fighting about who will be the next Tory leader.

It is understandable that David Cameron would like Labour to be in the same chaos as his own party, after the European Union membership referendum which he lost, in spite of, or maybe because of, his expensive taxpayer-paid propaganda of there supposedly there not being anything wrong with the European Union and that the lights would go out and that there would be devastating lethal volcanic eruptions of all mountains, hills and molehills in Britain if the electorate would vote for Brexit.

Jeremy Corbyn, though advocating a Remain vote, did not claim the European Union was perfect and did not participate with Cameron in ‘project fear‘ propaganda.

So, one might compare Cameron’s call on Corbyn to resign to the desperate shriek of a man who cannot swim and is about to drown, to his opponent standing on the bank to jump into the water and drown as well.

Except that Cameron has a Tory fifth column inside the Parliamentary Labour Party: the Blairite right-wing MPs who with Cameron want to drown Corbyn, and with him Labour party democracy, the verdict of Labour members who massively elected Corbyn, and the hopes of defeating the Conservatives in a general election.

David Cameron Resigns As U.K. Prime Minister After Brexit Vote

The resignation casts Britain into further uncertainty following its referendum to leave the European Union.

06/24/2016 03:23 am ET | Updated 59 minutes ago

British Prime Minister David Cameron announced he would resign his post on Friday morning, after his country voted to leave the European Union, adding political leadership to the United Kingdom’s growing list of uncertainties. Cameron promised to stay in office until October and help “steady the ship” before a new leader is chosen. …

Cameron, in power since 2010, had called the so-called Brexit referendum of his own accord after promising conservative factions of his party in 2013 that he would hold such a vote if he won re-election last year. Thursday’s referendum badly weakened Cameron and means Britain will be the first country to withdraw from the 28-member EU. …

Cameron had spent months advocating that citizens vote to remain in the union, and warned a decision to leave would drastically harm the economy. Voters ultimately spurned his appeals, with about 52 percent favoring Brexit. …

Cameron had pledged before the vote to stay in office whatever the results. He had considered stepping down if 2014’s independence referendum in Scotland was successful, but the Scottish people ultimately decided to remain in the U.K.

In Scotland, which voted overwhelmingly to stay, the leader of the Scottish parliament is pushing for a second independence vote from the U.K.

Sinn Fein: Brexit Referendum Results Intensifies The Case For United Ireland Vote: here.

After EU vote and Cameron goes: unite to shape revolt against establishment

David Cameron has resigned, and the Leave vote in the EU referendum has hurled the Tory party, and the British and European establishments, into a profound crisis.

Cameron’s desperate referendum gamble has failed, his party is split in half.

The pound and share prices are falling and the “masters of the universe” have felt the sting of rejection.

Despite Remain having the support of the Tories, Labour, the SNP, Plaid Cymru, the Lib Dems, the Greens, Sinn Fein, practically every bosses’ and international finance body, thousands of “top executives” and the leaders of dozens of states including the US, more than half of those voting backed Leave.

It is time for everyone on the left and all anti-racists, however they voted, to unite and fight against austerity, the destruction of public services, the attacks on refugees, Islamophobia and the fascists who created the conditions for the murder of Jo Cox.

The politicians, the rich and the powerful who are so used to getting their own way have suffered a massive reverse.

Revolt

Just as in so many other parts of the world, there is a revolt going on against the people at the top of society. It can be dragged left or right. It is our job to shape it.

The right will try to use the Leave vote to deepen racism. This is a danger, but it is far from inevitable.

It is a lie that the millions of workers who voted Leave are all racists. The mainstream Leave campaign was headed by racists and horrible right wing forces, but a large part of the Leave vote was very different.

One poll taken just before the vote showed that the majority of Leave voters thought that immigration had a good impact or no impact on the areas where they lived. And a fifth thought immigration was positive for Britain as a whole.

Another poll found that a third of Labour voters at the 2015 general election, and a third of Green voters were going to back Leave.

There are deep pools of bitterness and frustration everywhere across Britain.

The Leave vote was for many a rejection of the undemocratic, corporate-controlled EU and the political elites in Britain. This revolt against the rich and powerful must be built on.

Democracy

It is a tragedy that Labour did not back Leave. If it had done so it would have transformed the debate to be far more about democracy, breaking from austerity and resisting corporate control than about racism.

Instead, by campaigning alongside the Tories for Remain, some Labour MPs have cut themselves off from substantial sections of workers.

During the campaign several leading figures in the Labour Party from Tom Watson and Ed Balls to John McDonnell and Len McCluskey called into question the existing right of EU citizens to come to Britain.

Jeremy Corbyn didn’t do this. He should now call openly for actions against austerity and racism, and demand that the trade union leaders do the same. This is the best chance of forcing the general election that he says Labour is ready for.

Socialist Worker campaigned for an anti-racist, anti-austerity and socialist Leave vote. We are pleased that Leave has won. We know that the #Lexit Left Leave campaign we were part of had only a marginal effect.

But we were able to make sure there was an anti-capitalist Leave voice that did not pander to racism.

Racism

We recognise that a substantial section of those who voted Remain did so because they felt it was the best way to push back the racism of Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson.

Others were persuaded that the EU stands for workers’ rights and that a Leave vote would strengthen vile right-wing forces.

We didn’t agree, but it’s crucial that everyone on the left unites to bring down the Tories and to fight racism.

We must come together in the battles against racism, Islamophobia and in support of refugees, build for the march on the Tory conference in Birmingham on 2 October, back the teachers’ strikes in England and all the other strikes, defend the NHS, combat environmental degradation and fracking and much more.

We must not let the Tories recover, and have to fight to make sure this crisis ends with the right shattered and the anti-racist left stronger.

At a time of crisis it is actions we need, not just statements. The more strikes and protests and occupations there are, the better will be the outcome of this Leave vote.

We say Tories out, austerity out, migrants in, general election now!

Join the protest at Downing Street, London, 6pm tonight. Tories Out! Call a General Election ⋅ No to Austerity ⋅ Migrants Welcome Here Called by Lexit—the Left Leave Campaign

UK forces fighting in Syria ‘illegal’ – warns Stop the War

UK Special Forces have been fighting on the frontline in Syria despite explicit assurances to parliament from Cameron that there would be ‘no UK boots on the ground’.

Such a move ‘is illegal unless sanctioned by parliament,’ Stop the War Coalition warned yesterday. According to The Times British special forces based in Jordan frequently cross into Syria to assist the so-called ‘New Syrian Army’, which has been holding out in the southeastern village of al-Tanf.

The Ministry of Defence said: ‘We may or may not have special forces in Syria. For reasons of security we cannot comment on any operation involving special forces.’

Head of the Stop the War Coalition, Lindsey German, told News Line: ‘Reports of British troops fighting in Syria highlight once again the contempt for democracy shown by those who support successive wars.

‘Any such deployment is illegal unless sanctioned by parliament. It is unfortunately increasingly typical of troop deployment which is secretive and avoids any democratic scrutiny. As we await the Chilcot report, it is a travesty of the democratic process to keep involving British troops in Syria undeclared.’

In December 2015, parliament approved a motion moved by Tory PM Cameron which called for the UK to join in the US led bombing campaign in Syria. The motion explicitly stated: ‘. . . . the government will not deploy UK troops in ground combat operations.’

During the debate, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn warned: ‘The logic of an extended air campaign is, in fact, towards mission creep and western boots on the ground. Whatever the Prime Minister may say now about keeping British combat troops out of the way, that is a real possibility.’

During that debate Ian Paisley (North Antrim) (DUP) asked: ‘If it becomes necessary at a later date to deploy ground troops, will he guarantee that he will come back to this House to seek approval for that?’

Cameron replied: ‘This is something not only that I do not want to do, but that I think would be a mistake if we did it. The argument was made to us by the Iraqi government that the presence of western ground troops can be a radicalising force and can be counterproductive, and that is our view.’

Big anti-Cameron demonstration in London, videos


This video from England says about itself:

People’s Assembly March London 16 of April, 2016

I estimated that some 50,000 participants showed for the first People’s Assembly March in London, many furious at the excess of this Tory government and in particular current PM David Cameron, whose lack of transparency and appalling cost cutting measures have put public services in this country at risk of privatization through the back door.

Many in this country are angry at what they see as fat cats taking a mickey at the general public, with unnecessary austerity measures that have hit the poor hardest and aren’t working.

Whilst rich are getting richer, poor are getting poorer, rich won’t pay tax and get scott free to do whatever they want, the poor need to pay tax or go to jail, do not pass go.

Public services, especially the education, healthcare professionals are being hit hardest, asked to work longer hours for a lot less money.

Panama papers and the revelation that 18 out of 21 government ministers have offshore bank accounts, avoid paying taxes whilst demanding the general public to foot the bill for a number of failed polices has angered many to a point that they’re threatening with walkouts and a general strike.

Many unions, including the teachers, nurses and junior doctors and health professionals are demanding for the government to agree on negotiations over wages and working conditions.

Many are demanding David Cameron to resign, and as confidence in Tory government is at all time low, resignation of this government and to call for new elections as soon as this is conveniently possible.

Many see the current Tory government as highly corrupt and dishonest, unqualified to lead or run this country and are demanding changes and ideally resignation of this government. I am one of these countless millions who feels the same.

Government of the people, for the people, by the people, shall not perish from this earth. However this government is for the rich, by the rich, with the rich in mind, Nepotism and Corruption shall not perish as long as Tories rule.

Power to the people!!!
