This could be authentic news but it could also be clever propaganda staged to create more fear of going against the state. People are impressed by this and resign themselves not to end up like that. We see this in whistleblower stories that end in the blowers persecution and destitution. Many of these stories are true of course but how many fake stories of these types are added to drive home a point?

 

Anyways, anyone trusting the impartiality of those courts need a serious reality check. Soon even chewing bubblegum will become a crime against the state.

KHAN RE-ELECTION LOOKS RIGGED SAYS PIERS CORBYN - QUESTIONS MUST BE ASKED.

Piers says:-
The problem with this declared result of 44% votes for Khan (and about 34% for Tory Susan Hall) is that it doesn't square with experience on the ground.

Firstly the reported turn-out in inner London seemed to massively exceed the massive disinterest experienced. A lot didn't even know there was an election.

Second the initial response of Tories that they might have won was based on early observations but the turnout figures were way beyond initial understandings when they came out.

THIRD, In 4 weeks of campaigning in various ways just about every day I only met one person who declared for Khan (and I convinced him in 2 minutes why he should back me if I was allowed to stand). Many more said they'd vote for Hall. Of course many would not say but evidence from my experience in all previous elections is that many more would have stated they supported a candidate who eventually won.

I suspect Postal Vote fraud. I note one case of a voter in my local polling station who on asking for his vote was told he had already postal voted. He said he had not and indeed had never postal voted. He wasn't allowed to vote.
Someone had somehow postal-voted for him.

Postal Votes are open to fraud.
We look forward to someone revealing what happened.

We need to ask the Greater London Returning Officer and every constituency Returning officer:
1. How many (and percentage) PVs were issued for Mayor.
2. What percentage of those actually voted. Was it higher than the % direct poll locally?
3. What % of PVs were issued to an alternative address - eg to a political party activist or operative who could vote on behalf of the voter. [This is a simple process under PV rules].

Let us all hope that the Returning Officers will respond quickly and that someone involved will reveal what happened and we can have a new election.

It's also notable there were many cases of refusing ID. Someone I met wrecked a polling station because her pic ID was refused.

DEFINITIONS AND DISTINCTIONS

 

 

FREE MARKET: That condition of society in which all economic transactions result from voluntary choice without coercion. 

 

THE STATE: That institution which interferes with the Free Market through the direct exercise of coercion or the granting of privileges (backed by coercion). 

 

TAX: That form of coercion or interference with the Free Market in which the State collects tribute (the tax), allowing it to hire armed forces to practice coercion in defense of privilege, and also to engage in such wars, adventures, experiments, "reforms," etc., as it pleases, not at its own cost, but at the cost of "its" subjects. 

 

PRIVILEGE: From the Latin privi, private, and lege, law. An advantage granted by the State and protected by its powers of coercion. A law for private benefit. 

 

USURY: That form of privilege or interference with the Free Market in which one State-supported group monopolizes the coinage and thereby takes tribute (interest), direct or indirect, on all or most economic transactions. 

 

LANDLORDISM: That form of privilege or interference with the Free Market in which one State-supported group "owns" the land and thereby takes tribute (rent) from those who live, work, or produce on the land. 

 

TARIFF: That form of privilege or interference with the Free Market in which commodities produced outside the State are not allowed to compete equally with those produced inside the State. 

 

CAPITALISM: That organization of society, incorporating elements of tax, usury, landlordism, and tariff, which thus denies the Free Market while pretending to exemplify it.

 

CONSERVATISM: That school of capitalist philosophy which claims allegiance to the Free Market while actually supporting usury, landlordism, tariff, and sometimes taxation. 

 

LIBERALISM: That school of capitalist philosophy which attempts to correct the injustices of capitalism by adding new laws to the existing laws. Each time conservatives pass a law creating privilege, liberals pass another law modifying privilege, leading conservatives to pass a more subtle law recreating privilege, etc., until "everything not forbidden is compulsory" and "everything not compulsory is forbidden." 

 

SOCIALISM: The attempted abolition of all privilege by restoring power entirely to the coercive agent behind privilege, the State, thereby converting capitalist oligarchy into Statist monopoly. Whitewashing a wall by painting it black. 

 

ANARCHISM: That organization of society in which the Free Market operates freely, without taxes, usury, landlordism, tariffs, or other forms of coercion or privilege.

 

- RIGHT ANARCHISTS predict that in the Free Market people would voluntarily choose to compete more often than to cooperate.

 

- LEFT ANARCHISTS predict that in the Free Market people would voluntarily choose to co-operate more often than to compete.

Free market: the free exchange of privately owned good and services 

 

the state: the government, a tax and debt funded institution that claims jurisdiction over specific regions of the land through coercion and violence they enforce their jurisdiction. 

 

tax: an unlawfully required payment or bill required to the state, no receipt or invoice or guarantee of serviced provided is ever guaranteed. 

 

privilege: a means at which an artificial privilege is granted based on power found through government bureaucracy.

 

usury: an interest on loans

 

landlordism: is not a word. 

 

tariff: A tariff is an additional cost or fine added to the cost of imports by the government. 

 

capitalism: is the free voluntary exchange of individuals and corporations and other entities on the market of private property. 

 

conservatism: that is a an old idea that is exploited by modern political parties but in name only. Their policies are not conservative any longer. 

 

liberalism: social liberalism under the libertarian perspective is probably the most reasonable, it takes in to consideration the idea that disagreeing with something doesn't necessarily mean that banning it is the best idea. 

 

socialism: it is the idea that government economically is more suited at running these large government departments with 10000s of employees vs allowing the free market to dictate that sector of the market. 

 

anarchism - this means a society that is without government or centralisation of power.

‘Anglo-Saxon’ isn’t racist. It’s a source of English pride
https://www.yahoo.com/news/anglo-saxon-isn-t-racist-170608912.html

 

"For if we dispense with the Anglo-Saxons, what happens to the name of England, the country of the Angles, or Essex and Sussex, territories of the Saxons? Can we talk any longer of the Anglophone countries? It is telling that even today Russian propaganda mockingly refers to us Britons as Anglosaksy, thinking it a term of derision. Such an insult makes one quite proud."
