MPs Accept Expensive Treats

Plastic Fantastic ..
During the Second World War, many of Britain’s toy factories were requisitioned for munitions work, and although toy making ceased, this war work indirectly led to a new product which would revolutionise the industry – plastic.. Although plastic was known before the war, various techniques were developed and refined in the factories, where it was used for numerous things including aircraft fittings.
When toy making recommenced, plastic was the obvious choice of material to develop, especially for dolls.. Plastic was light, robust, cheap and easy to mould, and it quickly replaced the traditional composition (plaster mix) or porcelain that was the norm before the war.

UK MPs Accept Expensive Treats From Bookies ..
Bookies and sports organisations top the list of donors treating MPs to gifts and hospitality.. The revelation has fuelled claims that the gambling industry is trying to influence Parliament.. Ladbrokes Coral Group treated 15 MPs to trips to Ascot, Doncaster and Cheltenham races, football at Wembley and dinner at the Tory Party conference.

Are The Ministry Of Defence Covering Up Rape ?..
A rape is reported by female soldiers once every fortnight in the Army.
Ministry of Defence figures show there were 130 sexual assault claims by women against male colleagues in the past five years, including 31 in 2016.. Out of 55 allegations of rape in the past two years, 32 soldiers were prosecuted but just three were found guilty.
A serving Army lawyer fears the number of rapes may be higher as victims do not press charges due to low conviction rates.. Women Against Rape said there was a “concerted cover-up” by the Ministry of Defence.

Lowest Number Of Public Sector Workers Since 1947 ..
Nearly a million public sector jobs have been axed since 2010, official figures show.
Seven years ago 6.4 million people worked in the public sector.
Under Tory PMs David Cameron and Theresa May that number has fallen to 5.44 million.
Among the losses are 164,000 posts in education, 44,000 in the police force and 41,000 in the Armed Forces.. The NHS workforce has grown by 4%, but 134,000 posts have gone in other health and social work, and 186,000 in public admin.
Office for National Statistics figures show public sector workers now make up just 16.9% of the labour force.. That’s the lowest proportion since 1947, the year before the NHS was founded.

East-West Economy Change ..
In 1411, Western Europe was a backward periphery far from the fabulous riches of East Asia, the world’s centre of economic and cultural gravity.
Now fast-forward 500 years to 1911:  Western Europe and its overseas colonies have humbled Asians and bestride the world like a Colossus.
Now go another 100 years or so: The West is staggering under a crushing burden of debt and is looking to the East to revive its flagging economy.
What has happened ?.. Is it because our leaders in business and in government have been greedy and selfish ?

A Strange Coincidence Of Fate ..
On December 5, 1660, a ship sank in the Strait of Dover.
The only survivor was noted to be Hugh Williams.
On December 5, 1767, another ship sank in the same waters.
127 lost their lives, and the only survivor was Hugh Williams.
On August 8, 1820, a picnic boat capsized on the River Thames.
There was one survivor, Hugh Williams.
And on July 10, 1940, a British trawler was destroyed by a German mine. Only two men survived, one man and his nephew – both were called Hugh Williams.

Black Holes Are Spinning Faster ..
Giant black holes in the centre of galaxies are spinning faster than at any other time in the history of the universe, research shows.
When the universe was half its present size, nearly all the super-massive black holes had very low spins.. But nowadays a fraction of them have very high spins.
Scientists still don’t have a clue as to the purpose of black holes.. In fact, they don’t have a clue about most things in the universe.
A black hole, and there are probably millions of them, is a region of space in which the gravitational field is so powerful that nothing, including light, can escape its pull.
The black hole has a one-way surface, into which objects can fall, but out of which nothing can come.
It is called ‘black’ because it absorbs all the light that hits it, reflecting nothing.

Truly Scandalous

Shameful Treatment Of Disabled Workers ..
For 70 years, since the end of World War Two, Britain has led the world in providing supported employment to disabled people, mainly through a company called Remploy.. But in July 2012, the Conservative Government announced that 27 Remploy factories will close by the end of the year, which will make around 1,700 disabled workers unemployed.

Fat-Cats Must Be Forced To Share The Cream ..
Everyone accepts those at the top will be paid more, but the gap is widening into an unacceptable chasm, all the more revolting as millions of workers are struggling to get by.
We want an economy operating for the millions, not just the millionaires, and that means raising living standards at the bottom while curbing boardroom excesses.. In any company every person on the payroll contributes to the success of that enterprise and their contributions cry out for a fairer link between earnings at the top and the bottom.. Fat-cats must be forced to share the cream rather than lapping most of it up themselves.

The Tories Are Trying To Con The North Again ..
The day Transport Secretary Chris Grayling announced the cost and new route for HS2 from London, the Institute of Fiscal Studies reported the growing inequality between North and South.. Southerners now have average incomes 25% higher than northerners.. Talk about Mind The Gap !.. But like Thomas the Tank Engine, Failing Grayling chuffed away with gusto.. He thought HS2 was “good news for everyone” and was “proud that it would be built and operated by the private sector, at a cost of £55billion and in over two decades”.. I recall a previous Tory Transport Secretary in 1996 said the same about HS1 – the High Speed Channel Tunnel Rail Link from London to the tunnel in Kent.. They promised this Eurostar service would go to Scotland.. They even bought the sleeper train for it.. Yet within 12 months, the private company said it was going bust and demanded £2billion more of taxpayers’ support because it failed to estimate passenger growth and future costs.. It was my job as Transport Secretary in 1997 to sort out the mess.. I told them they could go whistle for the money and instead took HS1 into public ownership.. I reorganised its governance and finances without its extra demand for public subsidy.. We got it delivered on time and on budget without extra taxpayer money.. It became so profitable that Cameron’s Government privatised it.. But the route never extended to the North and we had to flog the unused sleeper trains to Canada !.. Now the Tories are trying to con the North again.

Brexit Is A Withdrawal From The World ..
To half the country, and most outsiders, Brexit is a withdrawal from the world, a retreat back to some mythical golden age.. A shrivelling into our shell which has shrunk the pound and economic growth and diminished our clout as a global power.
Since the Tories took power, big city councils have seen their budgets slashed by 50%, meaning fewer libraries and sports centres, dirtier streets, worse care for the elderly and more unfixed potholes, while citizens pay more council tax.
Talking of pay, it’s currently shrinking quicker than a man’s todger after a December dip in the sea off Blackpool.. Unless you’re the one doing the shrinking.. In the mid-1970s the average British CEO earned 20 times what his average employee did.. Today the average FTSE chief executive earns 386 times more than a worker on the National Living Wage, pocketing an average of £5.3million a year.

The Worst Education Secretary On Record ..
Just wondering if Michael Gove, lover of free schools, as well as the worst Education Secretary on record (just ask a teacher), has read about the fortunes of pupils attending Route 39 Academy, a free school based in Devon ?.. It’s just been placed in special measures after failing to enter ANY year 11 pupils for their GCSEs.. Truly scandalous.

Rape And Sexual Grooming In Care Homes ..
The most perverted individuals prey on the most vulnerable as yet another horrific story of abuse has confirmed.. According to confidential police documents, concerns were raised over the suspected rape of an autistic man as well as ‘sexual grooming’ of residents at three homes run by Hillgreen Care, which apparently specialises in the ‘care’ of young adults.. The documents also highlight incidents of staff having sex while on duty.. The deputy manager of one home was a convicted sex offender.. The Care Quality Commission, which has powers to prosecute, kept the information to themselves and has failed to act.. I, for once, am lost for words.

A Scam To Make City Investors Richer ..
The reaction from Tory politicians whenever British Gas massively hikes its tariffs is priceless.. They take to the airwaves to urge hard-hit customers to embrace capitalism by playing the markets, switching provider and hitting the exploiters where it hurts.. Funny how that kind of advice was never in the brochures when Thatcher privatised gas in 1986 by urging us : “If you see Sid, tell him.” .. There was no warning that flogging off a publicly-owned utility was just a scam to make City investors richer.

Taxpayers’ Money Used To Subsidise The Profits Of Fat-Cats ..
When Ted Heath was Prime Minister in 1973 he coined the phrase, “The unacceptable and ugly face of capitalism.”.. He used it to describe the UK mining company Lonrho, for trading with apartheid Rhodesia, which became Zimbabwe.. Prime Minister Thatcher’s response was to privatise energy, railways, buses, steelmaking, telecommunications and shipbuilding.. She encouraged private companies to run care homes, education and health.. Now, after two decades of privatisation, we see our services in crisis, the state subsidising the profits of these private companies and higher prices.. British Gas is to increase bills by 12.5% as the wholesale price of gas falls and parent company Centrica earns half year profits of £639million.. Its chief executive Ian Conn pulls in more than £4million a year.. We subsidise their greed.. The Government gave £6billion of tax breaks to BP and Shell to boost declining North Sea production.. Theresa May is happy to let capitalism get uglier by the day.. She scrapped her election pledge to cap energy prices as soon as she won and axed rail electrification across the North.. The market has failed Britain.. Housebuilding is down to its lowest rate in almost 100 years.. It’s time the Government got back to meeting the public interest by building the homes, supplying the energy and running the trains.. Instead of subsidising the profits of fat-cats with a licence to print money – OUR money.

Nearly Four Million Children Are Living In Poverty In The UK ..
Buttle UK, an anti-poverty charity, published a report which stated : “The plight of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable children is deteriorating – more are living in poverty than at any time in the last 10 years – 3.9million children across the UK living below the breadline.”.. The CEO, Gerry McAndrew estimates around 400,000 children have no beds.. No beds !.. The Institute of Fiscal Studies expects one million more kids to be living in poverty by 2020.. Nine out of the 10 most impoverished regions in northern Europe are in the UK.. How can anyone be proud of a nation that fails so many ?
( Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, 20.08.2017 )

It’s no coincidence that there are over 70 Tory MPs who are private landlords and the Conservative Party, including Mrs May, voted AGAINST a proposed Bill by Labour to force private landlords to make their properties ‘Fit for human habitation’.

Another Scandal By One Of Our So-Called Leaders ..
UK Chancellor Philip Hammond took a personal stake in a food technology company just months before it won a share of a £560,000 Government grant and he became Chancellor.. Mr Hammond, when he was Foreign Secretary, took the 15% stake in Cambridgeshire-based Hydramach in October 2015, according to records at Companies House.. Months later – in April 2016 – Hydramach was one of eight companies which won the grant to develop low fat and low sugar soups, ready meals and sauces from Innovate UK, a tech start up quango run by the Department for Business.
The fact that Mr Hammond took a direct stake in a company when he was a Cabinet minister with the possibility of receiving advance knowledge of Government plans for start-up companies is scandalous.

A Deliberate Policy To Hurt The Poor

Coal Put The Great In Britain ..
It powered the industrial revolution.. Our ships, trains, electricity generation, gas manufacture and chemicals.. The Government’s reckless abandonment of an industry that once employed a million men devastated communities yet to recover.
Under President Trump, who promised to bring back miners’ jobs, the USA is going back to coal.. The huge, fast-growing economies of China and India never left it.. But the UK now burns biomass at power stations like big-hitter Drax, wood pellets made in Mississippi, shipped to Liverpool and taken in special trains over the Pennines to Yorkshire.. How environmentally unsound is that ?.. Yet Kellingley, Britain’s last deep coal mine that closed 18 months ago was just a few miles away with a dedicated rail service.. And now we’re embarking, at vast cost, on an uncertain nuclear future reliant on foreign construction and know-how.. Going Green and nuclear has proved massively expensive for consumers, suppliers and homeowners.. Coal is cool again in America.. It’s too late to revive the industry here, but at least we could be spared the self-congratulations of the privatised power bosses.

A Broken Election Pledge By Mrs May ..
Theresa May has been blasted for breaking an election pledge to her own voters over protecting cash for schools.. Thirty of 40 schools in her constituency face cuts totalling £614,000 over the first two years of a new Tory funding plan.. Yet the PM fiercely backed David Cameron’s manifesto pledge that “the amount of money following your child into school will not be cut”.

Tories Have Always Put Themselves First ..
If we truly lived in a country which works for everyone, the NHS would not be under-funded and parents would not be buying their children textbooks schools can no longer afford.. If we truly lived in a country which works for everyone, low-income families would not be paying for austerity while the better off get richer on low interest rates.
If we truly lived in a a country which works for everyone, workers would not be exploited by zero-hours contracts while bankers line their pockets with fat bonuses.
The Tories have always put themselves and their rich cronies first, and nothing Theresa May has done so far changes that view.

One Billion People Have No Access To Sustainable Energy ..
More than one billion people – one in five human beings on the planet – don’t have access to sustainable energy.. They are working and studying in the dark.. They are cooking and heating their homes using dung or kerosene, breathing in toxic smoke that causes lung disease and kills nearly two million people a year.. Most of them are women and children.. In Uganda, where access to power is limited, doctors have to deliver babies in the dark, performing C-sections by candlelight.

A Policy To Impoverish The Public Sector And Hurt The Poor ..
David Cameron sings for his roast poodle supper in South Korea, by telling businessmen that Britain can’t spend money today it may need tomorrow, when such a concept has never had to cross the mind of the banker’s son with a tax-haven trust fund who married into aristocracy.. He tells emergency service workers who lay down their lives every day that to ask for their first effective pay rise in nine years is “selfish”.. As Cameron told the South Koreans, the policy he introduced which caused untold misery and death is “so-called austerity”.. A deliberate policy to impoverish the public sector and hurt the poor, all in the name of bailing out and enriching the banking class.
Not all public sector workers have felt the pinch though.. Were I a paramedic who came home after scraping bodies off the M6 to hear Tory MPs cheering the vote that stopped me getting a pay rise I’d be raging.. Because this is the seventh year my pay would have been capped at 1% or frozen, meaning a real-term cut of 9% since 2010.. Meanwhile, an MP’s basic pay has gone up £11,000 in that time ( to £76,011 ) with inflation-proof rises and a 10% hike in 2015.. A hike Cameron called the “going rate” for a highly demanding job.. Yes, so demanding that his co-austerity architect George Osborne recently managed to do it while holding down five outside jobs.

Bankers Plundered Our Country ..
Gordon Brown is not widely adored, but he is respected, admired and trusted.
When the world economy went into meltdown, our way of life was on its knees.
As the bankers plundered our country, capitalism itself seemed a spent force.
This country, and the developed world, were close to catastrophe.
That the banks stayed open and the cash machines kept working, and that salaries kept getting paid was down to Gordon Brown, Alistair Darling and Labour.
They brought a sinking ship into shore.
Everyone followed their example of part, nationalising the banks, even the Americans.. It was the only solution if we were going to survive.
Does anyone seriously think that the chinless Conservatives could have handled the collapse of our economy ?.. The Tory toffs continually opposed what Labour were doing but didn’t offer an alternative solution.
If left to them, the banks would have closed, the cash machines would be empty, millions of people would have lost their savings, their investments and their homes, and our country would have ground to a halt.
It was the greed of the bankers, needless to say mostly all Tories, who almost destroyed our economy, and our lives.

Britain Changed Forever ..
The roots of the financial chaos can be traced directly back to October 27, 1986, when the biggest revolution in the financial markets took place.
Margaret Thatcher saw London being over-taken as the centre of world finance by New York and she decided that it’s problem was over-regulation.
The big bang saw an overhaul of the system with a ‘light touch’ approach to regulating banks and trading bonuses went through the roof as “greed is good” became the mantra and the markets became a casino.
Weak banking regulations led to the irresponsible lending that triggered the crisis.
On May 4, 1979, Margaret Thatcher strode into number 10 and Britain changed forever.
She will never be forgiven for crushing millions under her heels.
She set out to destroy entire industries in an appalling act of political and social vandalism.. Thatcher’s legacy is the drug abuse and crime in communities deliberately stripped of work and dignity.

Poverty, Depression And Suicide ..
Margaret Thatcher was determined to break the miners and engineered their crippling defeat.. The Ridley plan detailed how they would fight, and defeat, a major strike in a nationalised industry.
In 1984, The National Union of Mine Workers went out on strike for a year over planned pit closures and their defeat marked the end of serious union might.
The coal industry was sold off and gradually shut down.
Communities had their hearts ripped out when the pits closed and many have still not recovered.. High unemployment still haunts many former pit villages along with poverty, depression and suicide.

The Family Silver Sold Off ..
Margaret Thatcher’s market-led policies saw the sale of 20 state-controlled companies including British Telecom.. Sales were marketed by huge advertising campaigns like “Tell Sid” for British Gas, which ended with a £5.4 billion sell off.
She said she wanted to open up share ownership to all.. But most people who bought shares in the newly-privatised firms sold quickly to make a quick profit.
The proportion of shares held by individuals rather than institutions did not actually increase.. With the family silver sold off, market forces now set the price.

So What Do We Have Now ? ..
We used to have an economy that was less virtual and depended more on making and selling real, actual, physical things.
During World War 2, the Clydeside yards built more ships than the United States of America.. We had an economy based on manufacturing.. But that’s gone now.
The Tory government of Mrs Thatcher destroyed our industrial and manufacturing base.. So what do we have now ?
We have an economy that depends on delivering pizzas to each other, and doing up our homes in the hope that we can sell them at a profit.
The banks lent all our savings to dodgy borrowers, and paid themselves huge salaries and obscene bonuses.
Can a nation have an economy worth the name if it doesn’t actually make anything ?

Life Behind Bars

The New, Purpose-Built House Of Correction ..
Bodmin Jail was built by prisoners of war and remains notorious for the many tales of woe and dramatic executions both inside and beyond its imposing granite walls.. Despite the dreadful conditions, the purpose-built house of correction, completed in the Cornish town of Bodmin in 1779, was a state of the art prison and was designed on principles propagated by the great prison reformer John Howard.. In keeping with his views, it housed 100 inmates in individual, light and airy cells.. Males and females were segregated, different areas were established for felons, misdemeanants and debtors, and the building boasted a chapel, an infirmary and even hot water.. In subsequent decades it required rebuilding and expansion to cope with peaks in demand, such as the increased level of committals after the end of the Napoleonic Wars.. Work began on a new 220-cell jail in 1856 after the original building, struggling to meet the demands for confinement set out by new prison legislation, was inspected and declared unfit for purpose.
When the Debtor’s Act of 1869 abolished imprisonment for debt, the buildings housing the Debtor’s Prison and the under-populated Women’s Prison were given to the Admiralty and in 1887 an HM Naval Prison was established.
Before the doors of Bodmin’s civil and naval prisons were closed for the last time and the jail’s buildings were sold off in 1929, one of Britain’s finest treasures was temporarily housed within its walls.. The Domesday Book was among more than 19,000 items relocated from the Public Record Office to Bodmin Jail for safekeeping during the First World War.
Some areas of the former prison would eventually enjoy new leases of life after the closure of the prison, including the former Administration block which witnessed happier times as a club and casino in later decades.. In 2004 the building was bought for development and is now managed as a tourist attraction.

Life Behind Bars Inside Bodmin Jail ..
Early prisoners worked inside Bodmin Jail, men occupied with activities such as shoemaking or cutting and polishing stone and slate, while women would knit, weave and spin, all producing goods that would be sold for profit.. The early 19th century philosophy that unproductive labour would be more of a deterrent against reoffending, saw the arrival of two treadwheel and other hard-labour machines at Bodmin.. In later decades picking oakum was also introduced, requiring prisoners to spend hours unraveling the strands of old pieces of rope down to their individual fibres, which would then be sold to ship builders for use in the caulking of wooden craft.. A return to earlier prison labour philosophy came in 1898 when the Prisons Act decreed that work should have a constructive purpose.
Daily rations of bread were handed out to Bodmin’s early inmates, with those attending divine service on a Saturday being allocated an additional half pound of meat made into broth for their Sunday dinner.. The Gaol Act of 1823 aimed to improve prison diets with the addition of items such as cheese and suet although this initiative was ignored for most of the next decade, as it was in many prisons.
From the mid 1870s, food was allocated according to the length of sentence.. Those incarcerated for less than two weeks had a daily ration of bread and gruel while men and women committed to hard labour for over six months were given additional portions of meat, soup and potatoes.. More variety would not be added to the diet for almost another 40 years.

Case Dropped Against Yvonne Fletcher’s Murder Suspect ..
Murdered WPC Yvonne Fletcher’s colleagues are furious after a police probe into a suspect was halted.. Police say a prosecution has been blocked for ‘national security’ reasons.. Saleh Ibrahim Mabroukwas held 18 months ago over the death of Yvonne, 25, who was shot policing a protest outside Libya’s London embassy in 1984.. It has emerged Theresa May did nothing to stop the case being dropped.. Yvonne’s colleague John Murray, who cradled her as she died, called the decision “a slap in the face”.. Colonel Gaddafi aide Mr Mabrouk was expelled from Britain after the death but returned in 2000, won asylum and gained a PhD in the oil industry.

Was Holodomor Genocide ?

Armenia, 1915 ..
 The Young Turks, part of the Dönmeh, a group of crypto-Jews that ‘converted’ to Islam, were responsible for the genocide of 1.5 million Christians.. The majority of those killed were Armenian, but the death toll also included Assyrians and Greeks.. These Christians were starved to death, grotesquely tortured and murdered.. Crucifixion was just one method of torture and death.

Russia, 1921-22 ..
The first of three Holodomors perpetrated by the Bolsheviks, the vast majority of whom were Jewish, including Trotsky and Lenin..  Angered by the resistance to collectivisation, Lenin ordered grain seizures to be increased.. While stealing the only food people had, the Jewish Cheka, an acronym for ‘Special Commission for Fighting Counter-Revolution’, as well as a Yiddish expression for ani­mal slaughter, also committed unspeakable atrocities.. Children were shot if they were found eating, some people were crucified or scalped, and others had their stomach cut open and part of their intestine pulled out and nailed to a tree or telegraph pole, around which the victim was forced to run until the entire intestine had come out.. The death toll for this first Holodomor, death by starvation, was up to five million ethnic Europeans, the majority of whom were Christians.. When asked to help with the famine, Trotsky responded, “You are starving ?.. This is not famine yet.. When your women start eating their children then you may come and say we are starving.”

Ukraine, 1932-33 ..
The second, most widely known Holodomor resulted in death by starvation of 7.5-10 million Ukrainians.. Again, mainly Christians.. The Jews at the helm of implementing Stalin’s first Five-Year-Plan were Lazar Kaganovich, Genrikh Yagoda and Nikolai Yezhov.. This Holodomor was also accompanied by similarly horrific atrocities, tortures and murders.. And, as Trotsky predicted, parents did eat their children.. Despite the unspeakable horrors and high death toll in this relatively short period of time, Ukraine’s Chief Rabbi, Yakov Dov Bleich, was quoted in the Baltimore Jewish Times on November 14, 2007 as saying, “We can’t equate the Holocaust of the Jews in Germany with the Holodomor in Ukraine.. Ukrainian Jewish leaders do not support recognising the Holodomor as genocide.”

Ukraine, 1946-47 ..
The third Holodomor resulted in, approximately, one million deaths by starvation.. Thus, 13.5-16 million ethnic Europeans, mainly Christians, died in these three genocides, combined.

Soviet Union, 1917-57 ..
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn stated that 66 million people, most of whom were Christian, were killed by the Bolsheviks and Stalin combined.. This figure includes the three Holodomors, above.. In ‘Two Hundred Years Together’, Solzhenitsyn’s last book, he writes, “Without Jews there would never have been Bolshevism.. For a Jew nothing is more insulting than the truth.. The bloodthirsty Jewish terrorists have murdered sixty-six million in Russia from 1918 to 1957.”

The following Trotsky quote from 1917 clearly shows that the driving motivation of the Jewish Bolsheviks had nothing to do with liberating the workers and peasants, but everything to do with imposing tyrannical rule upon the Russian people :
“We must turn Russia into a desert populated by white negroes upon whom we shall impose a tyranny such as the most terrible Eastern despots never dreamt of.. The only difference is that this will be a left-wing tyranny, not a right-wing tyranny.. It will be a red tyranny and not a white one.. We mean the word ‘red’ literally, because we shall shed such floods of blood as will make all the human losses suffered in the capitalist wars pale by comparison.. The biggest bankers across the ocean will work in the closest possible contact with us.. If we win the revolution, we shall establish the power of Zionism upon the wreckage of the revolution’s funeral, and we shall became a power before which the whole world will sink to its knees.. We shall show what real power is.. By means of terror and bloodbaths, we shall reduce the Russian intelligentsia to a state of complete stupefaction and idiocy and to an animal existence.. At the moment, our young men in their leather jackets, who are the sons of watchmakers from Odessa, Orsha, Gomel and Vinnitsa, know how to hate everything Russian.. What pleasure they take in physically destroying the Russian intelligentsia, officers, academics and writers.”

The above is from the ‘Memoirs’ of Aron Simanovich, quoted in ‘The Nature of Zionism’ by Vladimir Stepin, Moscow, 1993, and translated from Russian into English by Clive Lindhurst.

British-Jewish History ..
The Jewish people have been an integral part of British history ever since the day William the Conqueror invaded England in 1066, his conquest directly financed by Jews who had been expelled from Spain.
The 2,600 Jews who followed in the wake of the invasion grew to 16,000 by the year 1290, at which point Edward I expelled them, primarily due to their usurious practices.. Two hundred and fifty-seven years later, in 1647, Oliver Cromwell accepted Jewish money to further his Roundhead fight against the Cavaliers.. In return, Cromwell agreed to allow the expelled Jews back into England.
In 1689, William of Orange ascended to the throne as King William III, his invasion fully financed by Jewish money.. He continued to take yet more Jewish money to finance his costly wars with France, resulting in the Jews being given a charter to establish the Bank of England in 1694.. This led to the creation of the national debt, with the resulting interest being paid through the raising of taxes.
The next major step in the illustrious British-Jewish history was when, through deception, following the Battle of Waterloo of 1815, the Rothschilds gained control of the British economy and, ultimately, the Bank of England.. Which, of course, led to their owning or controlling all of the world’s central banks.
