The Animals of Chernobyl | The New York Times

6 May 2014

Biologist Timothy Mousseau has been studying the lasting effects of radiation on the flora and fauna of Chernobyl, Ukraine.

Translated from Dutch daily Algemeen Dagblad, 16 October 2015:

At the entrance of the Czech nuclear power plant Temelin this week suddenly the alarm bells went off. The super-sensitive equipment had measured radiation on one of the employees.

What was the case? The man had eaten the night before meat of a wild boar from the Bohemian Forest. Many of the pigs in the park are still contaminated with radioactivity from the nuclear disaster in Chernobyl in 1986.

#PigGate: New book says PM Cameron put his dong into dead pig‘s mouth at Oxford party – TomoNews

22 September 2015

LONDON — A new book is making some rather salacious claims about UK Prime Minister David Cameron‘s days at Oxford, including that he once placed his “gentleman’s area” into the mouth of a dead pig.

The unauthorized biography, titled “Call me Dave” was authored by Cameron’s former political ally, Lord Ashcroft, and journalist Isabel Oakeshott.

It includes the claim that Britain’s conservative Prime Minister “put a private part of his anatomy into a dead pig’s mouth” during an initiation ritual at the Piers Gaveston Society sometime before 1988.

The source of the claim, himself a member of the British Parliament, allegedly first publicly mentioned the debauchery during a business dinner in June 2014, and then repeated the accusation twice since then.

Lord Ashcroft writes in the book that perhaps the story is indeed a case of mistaken identity, but he continues, “… It is an elaborate story for an otherwise credible figure to invent.”

These are not the first stories that have been printed regarding David Cameron‘s active social life during his time as a student at Oxford, where he joined the famous — or infamous — Bullingdon Club, whose members were rather devoted to the consumption of alcohol.

The overall image that emerges from “Call Me Dave” is that of a spoiled rich kid enjoying the high life at Oxford, a kid who apparently did not imagine himself becoming Prime Minister of the United Kingdom some day.

James Delingpole, an Oxford friend of Mr. Cameron, also claims he and the future PM smoked marijuana as part of a cannabis appreciation Oxford group called the “Flan Club.” Mr. Cameron reportedly enjoyed getting high with Delingpole while listening to the rock band Supertramp.

Tory pig race trotting on after cancellation furore

Wednesday 23rd September 2015

A LOCAL Conservative party group promised yesterday that a fundraising pig race event will go ahead, despite reports it had been cancelled amid swilling allegations about David Cameron’s student days.

Dewsbury County Conservative Association (DCCA), in West Yorkshire, had planned a pig race fundraising evening next month but Facebook users yesterday received a message claiming it had been cancelled.

The group later took to Twitter to reassure people that the “exciting and unpredictable evening” would go ahead as planned.

DCCA’s initial cancellation followed the publication of extracts from a new book by billionaire businessman and former Conservative Party treasurer Lord Ashcroft, in which he alleged that Mr Cameron placed “a private part of his anatomy” in the mouth of a dead pig as part of a bizarre student initiation ritual.

But Dewsbury Tories later refuted the rumours, which had been spammed all over social media, by Tweeting: “The event is still going ahead — someone was a bit premature with Facebook.”

Racegoers will be provided with pulled pork sandwiches as part of the £7.50 entry fee.

Twitter reacts to Lord Ashcroft’s Cameron biography excerpts

21 September 2015

Lord Ashcroft‘s biography on PM David Cameron have caused a stir after portions were printed in the Daily Mail today. One particular allegation has caught the imagination of Twitter users, causing a small meltdown overnight.

From daily The Independent in Britain:

David Cameron accused of ‘doing an Iraq‘ in Libya as general and White House official condemn ‘incompetent’ PM’s actions

A source at the White House claims they were ‘f****ed over’ on Libya and Syria

David Cameron’s actions over Libya have been condemned by a former Tory chairman as “doing an Iraq” while his decisions on both Syria and Libya left the White House feeling “f****ed over”, according to revelations made in a new book.

Former Tory chairman Michael Ancram made the comparison between Mr Cameron’s actions in Libya and Tony Blair’s in Iraq, in a new unofficial biography of the Prime Minister entitled Call Me Dave and written by former Tory donor Lord Ashcroft. The book is being serialised in the Daily Mail, where the claims have been published.

Mr Ancram tells the authors – Lord Ashcroft and journalist Isabel Oakeshott – that Mr Cameron’s decisions over Libya have left the country “ungovernable… with vast amounts of weapons from Gaddafi’s arsenal moved south of the border, arming Boko Haram.”

A senior American government insider allegedly said the White House felt “f****ed over” by Mr Cameron on both Libya and Syria, while General Sir David Richards allegedly told the Prime Minister that being in the Combined Cadet Force at Eton did not make him qualified enough to make decisions over complex military operations and the tactics employed in them.

One White House insider is quoted as saying: “It was one of those astonishing displays of incompetence that sort of leaves you wondering about how, you know, have we all got this far?”

The revelation of Mr Cameron’s apparently poor handling of Syria and Libya follows Lord Ashcroft’s extraordinary allegations that the Prime Minister reportedly “inserted a private part of his anatomy” into the mouth of a dead pig and that he smoked cannabis while studying at Oxford University.

In an unauthorised biography of the Prime Minister entitled ‘Call Me Dave’ and serialised in the Daily Mail it is alleged that an anonymous MP knew of a photograph of the incident with the pig’s head, which is claimed to have taken place during a notorious Piers Gaveston Society event although the anonymous MP adds that it could have been a case of mistaken identity and that he had not seen any evidence himself.

The book has been written by ex-Conservative party treasurer Lord Ashcroft, who has donated millions to the party in the past.

It is also alleged that Mr Cameron knew in 2009 of Lord Ashcroft’s “non dom” status – a year earlier than the Prime Minister had previously said to have known. The revelation that Lord Ashcroft did not pay UK tax on his overseas earnings was made in March 2010. At the time the Prime Minister said he had only known of the situation for a month.

The Prime Minister and the Tory peer fell out after the general election when Lord Ashcroft failed to be given a top position in the Coalition government in 2010, though he claims the work is “not about settling scores”.

The book has been co-written by journalist Isabel Oakeshott, who also denied the book was written out of revenge. She told BBC Radio 4’s The World at One: “If this was just a revenge job, Lord Ashcroft and I could have published it ahead of the election.”

British politicians are obsessed with bombing the Middle East, says Afghanistan veteran MP. Clive Lewis says launching airstrikes in Syria is a ‘knee-jerk reaction’: here.
