Professor Anthony Glees-Right Wing Expert on Terrorism

Professor Anthony Glees-Right Wing Expert on Terrorism

Professor Anthony Glees is an extreme right-wing British academic considered an expert on, “terrorism” and “radicalization”. He is currently head of the Buckingham University Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies at Britain’s only private university. He is affiliated to the, “Henry Jackson Society” a project for democratic geopolitics which is a British neo-conservative think tank and political action committee (PAC) which is supported by important US neo-cons and by two of Prime Minister David Cameron’s closest advisers and ministers, (Michael Gove and Ed Vaizey).

David Haines – The Scottish Aid Worker Held Captive in Syria

Professor Anthony Glees, is convinced ISIS sense an opportunity to weaken the UK via their brutal campaign of terror. He expressed fears Islamic extremists are deliberately threatening to behead David Haines, a Scots aid worker, using the dad-of-two in a propaganda drive as the Scottish independence referendum approaches to break up the UK. Last night highly-placed intelligence sources revealed it is “extremely likely” ISIS terror chiefs believe beheading Haines will make Prime Minister David Cameron appear, “weak”, fueling anti-English sentiment among referendum voters.

Islamic State Executioners are British

Professor Anthony Glees, of the Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies at the University of Buckingham, told Britain’s, “The Independent” that political correctness had helped provide a fertile breading ground for Islamism in the UK. “Why are there Brits there? In my view this is because Islamist extremist ideologies have been able to be spread with relative ease in our country under the cover of “religion”, “free speech” and “multiculturalism”.” “A small number of British Muslims have been brainwashed by so-called preachers and convinced that they must kill to create a global caliphate,” he added.

Islamic Hit Squads Target Sunnis Living in the UK

Professor Anthony Glees, of the Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies at Buckingham University, said to the Daily Mail, “The US is worried about the British situation. They fear there might be a knock-on effect for them”, “The throat-cutting between Sunnis and Shias in Iraq and Syria has not yet spread to the UK, but it is a real threat”. “It is conceivable you could see Shia, “hit squads” in Britain targeting Sunnis preparing to go out to the conflict zones to fight.” “The Americans regard the UK as a disaster because of our lax stance on immigration which has allowed this militancy to take hold,” Glees added. “Frankly, they would not be doing their jobs properly if it did not do this – forming an objective view of the situation outside of the reports they get from MI5 and their officers at the US Embassy in London”.

Pupils in Schools in England Pushing Radical Islamic Agenda’s

The Home Office, which is responsible for the police and security forces, argues that it is counter-productive to clamp down on legal but extreme views. “It’s the difference between firefighting and fire protection,” said Professor Anthony Glees, who contributed to the parliamentary Homeland Security Group. “The government is split between libertarians and the law-and-order Conservatives.”

Al Qaeda Sleepers in London

Anthony Glees, wrote, in an article for the Wall Street Journal that, “Britain has become, al Qaeda target No. 1” He also stated that intelligence sources now believe that the activities of the “homegrown” jihadists in Britain are in fact, trained and sponsored from Pakistan.

Ebola Virus Danger to UK from Foreign Students

Anthony Glees, Professor of Politics at Buckingham University, called for West African students to be held in their home countries until they have been declared clear of Ebola and the 21-day incubation period has passed.

European Market – To Withdraw or Not That is the Question?

European Market – To Withdraw or Not That is the Question?

UKIP policy on an in/out vote on Europe is rumored to be more hardline than the Tory proposal and it appears to be nearing inclusion in the UKIP 2015 General Election Manifesto;

“In the event UKIP hold the balance of power after the next election, (increasingly likely) the party will insist that an in/out referendum be held before the end of 2015, (this will require a change in the rules pertaining to the fixed term of a government. Should the referendum result indicate the will of the people is to withdraw from the EU, parliament would be dissolved and a general election held in May 2016”. The government elected will negotiate the withdrawal of the UK from the European market.

Now that’s what I call a spoiler!! The wind will be well up the tails of the Tory, Labour and Liberal party’s.

Alan Hansen- A man for All Seasons

Alan Hansen for the, “Blether together” Scotland team of the past. A read of his autobiography revealed his disdain of the Scotland team. His long and extremely well paid sojourn in England has clearly clouded his judgement but I was not at all surprised he came out in support of a no vote in the referendum. After all he has been extremely well cared for financially , (still is through BT)

I remember Hansen well. He was a Liverpool stalwart but his Scotland career never really got going due to recurring injury call offs. Surprisingly he seemed to be fit to play for Liverpool a few days afterwards.

He played for Scotland in the 1982 World Cup in Spain. The team failed to progress beyond the the qualifying group due to a disastrous draw with the USSR. A collision worthy of a, “Charlie Chaplin” movie between a ball watching Hansen and his central defensive partner Willie Miller allowed USSR striker Ramoz Shengelia through to score.

He became a bit injury prone and was increasingly ignored by a number of Scotland managers throughout the eighties. Alex Ferguson, (in temporary charge after the sudden death in 1985 of Jock Stein) controversially dropped Hansen from the Scotland squad for the 1986 World Cup in Mexico, Stating that he shared Stein’s reservations about Hansen’s commitment to Scotland, poor international form and reluctance to play international friendly games in the warm up to the World Cup. He won the last of his 26 Scotland caps in 1987.

Hansen is no stranger to controversy, earning an incredible £1.5 million a year for his one-day-a-week job with the BBC, yet who still used to claim huge expenses bills to take him from his home in Southport down to London for filming. It seems that Hansen’s gravy train has stopped for good. His current contract with the BBC expired this summer, but it seems he has landed on his feet once more taking up a job with BT Sport.

Michelle Mone & the Ups & Downs of her Business Life.

Michelle Mone & the Ups & Downs of her Business Life.

1. Recurring threats by Michelle Mone to transfer her business to England should Scotland become independent are simply, “hot air” since she no longer has a controlling stake in her new company, (Ultimo Brands International) which incidentally is registered for business in london.

2. MJM International morphed into, “Ultimo Brands International” in January 2014 and is registered with Companies House in London. It has Ms Mone, Anthony Caplan, Eliaz Poleg and Ajaykumar Amalean as its directors. Mr Caplan is Ms Mone’s lawyer with Mr Poleg and Mr Amalean both board directors at MAS Holdings. MAS Holdings a, (Sri Lanka based company) is thought to have 51% ownership of UBI with Ms Mone in control of 49%. Mr Poleg, chairman of UBI, said, “We are delighted that we will soon be operating under a new company name, “Ultimo Brands International”. The name-change reflects the resurgence of the brand and our ambitions for growth beyond the UK.” The spokeswoman for UBI said the Ultimo range was being overhauled and relaunched in early 2014 .

3. Michelle Mone, the new poster girl for British Airways, (Boldly modelling a swimsuit of her own design)in yet another eye-catching twist in the career of one of Scotland’s best known business figures said, ‘I have absolutely no problem with people expressing an opinion, but if you are going to be disrespectful, I don’t want to hear it. ‘I’ve been called a “****”, a “cow”, a “slut”, as well as being told “I’m going to get it”, “we’ll come and get you” and they’re “going to throw me across the border”. ‘I’m not a murderer, a thief or a rapist. I’m a good person who employs a lot of people in Scotland, both Yes and No supporters, and we all get on. ‘We should all be able to live in a country where you can express views and not be vilified for it.’ But Ms Mone says her commercial experience tells her that ‘Alex Salmond’s business plan is flawed’.

4. Kate Hopkins, in her column for the, “Sun” labelled the Scottish lingerie tycoon an, “asylum seeker” after Mone pledged to move to England if Scotland became independent. Hopkins said, “If you are part of Scotland and have the opportunity to vote, you should remain in the country where you exercised your democratic right. “The last thing we need is more asylum seekers in England. She went on, “Even if they are wealthy and have norks like Marilyn Monroe.

5. Michelle Mone has revealed she suffers from obsessive compulsive disorder. In general, sufferers experience repetitive, intrusive and unwelcome thoughts, images, impulses and doubts which they find hard to ignore. The thoughts push them to perform repetitive acts as a way to alleviate the symptoms.

6. She has been criticised in the past for fronting a campaign backing Scottish manufacturing when her own products were being made overseas in China.

7. she got into another ruck with the press over claims that her business would be worth 100m just months before it had to be rescued by fellow entrepreneur Tom Hunter.

10. Michelle Mone, appoints a ‘fantastic’ new model – er, Ms Mone. The mistress of spin rarely passes an opportunity to step into the spotlight. Having dispensed with Jordan’s services after a single day, firing Peaches Geldof for alleged drug taking and insisting she only hired Penny Lancaster because she was cheap, Michelle Mone has finally found a model she can work with: herself.

11. Michelle Mone clenched her fist and spat venom about lingerie models who were refusing to stalk the catwalk in her skimpy thongs. “F***ing neurotics,” says Mone, creator of the Ultimo bra, which has boosted cleavages worldwide with its stitched-in sacs of silicone gel. “I think they’re bloody prima donnas. They’re getting paid fortunes, and they’re in there moaning their arse off. I feel like punching every one of them.”

12. The number of tribunals, and the amount of protection available to workers, has “gone way over the score”.

13. A Former employee, (at a tribunal), Miss Woods claimed, “Mrs Mone asked women at job interviews if they planned to start a family and did not seem to appreciate staff taking time off for family reasons.”

14. Michelle Mone, the bra tycoon, has pledged her support to Labour’s election campaign. The Scot extolled Labour’s economic and jobs record, yesterday, when the party outlined its plans for workers.

15. Michelle Mone branded Chancellor Alistair Darling’s 50p rate “a disgrace” and likened it to “Monopoly money”. She confessed she might also now be considering a move to Hong Kong to continue her successful Ultimo business.

16. Mone was branded a, “manipulative cow” by Rod Stewart over her decision to drop Penny Lancaster, his 34-year-old girlfriend, for his ex, after Lancaster was deemed not well enough known. The 60-year-old rocker said: “I hope she [Mone] chokes on her profits.” Ms Mone, 33, also received offensive e-mails over the move. But the real reason why Mone and Lancaster went their separate ways appears to be the usual culprit: money. It has come to light that when Lancaster’s 200,000-a-year contract to promote Ultimo ended, Mone asked if she could continue using the model’s image for another five months for free. The ‘offer’ was rejected as “ludicrous.

17. Michelle Mone has bought out investors Sir Tom Hunter and Ian Grabiner in a deal understood to be worth £800,000. The Scots billionaire and the chief operating officer of fashion group Arcadia had invested in Mone’s lingerie company, Ultimo, when the business nearly collapsed after its launch in 1999. The firm has since prospered.

18. Entrepreneur Michelle Mone is considering moving to the United States to further her television career. A regular guest on, “The Apprentice – You’re Fired” she revealed on social networking site, “Facebook” that she was torn between staying in Scotland and uprooting her children, to live in the US. “Decisions to make, offered a huge opportunity in LA but have to live there for a lot of the time,” she wrote. “Don’t think I can leave my home … wish I wasn’t such a home bird. “It would initially be for a year but huge decision as I would have to take kids out of school.”

19. In March 2002, Mone was 15 minutes from bankruptcy, salvaging the company only by putting up her house and her life-savings and borrowing 100,000 from the millionaire entrepreneur, Tom Hunter.

20. She may only have been two thirds of the way through her contract, but it seems that Abbey Clancy is no longer the face of Ultimo. The 28-year-old WAG has been sacked by Michelle Mone after the two fell out following another campaign which Abbey has recently fronted wearing next to nothing.

This is Westminster- MPs’ 9% Pay Rise to be Implemented

This is Westminster- MPs’ 9% Pay Rise to be Implemented

MPs elected to Westminster in nxt year’s general election will start their tenure with a 9% pay rise. The Chief Executive of the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (Ipsa), Marcial Boo said the proposal was not excessive, arguing politicians should not be paid a “miserly amount”. Their pay will be increased from £67,000 to £74,000. The proposed £74,000 figure was seen by some as being “at the low end”, he claimed, adding that pay needed to be fair to attract good candidates. Other quotes attributed to Boo;

a. “They are there to represent us all – to form laws, to send young people to war,”

b. “It is not an easy job to do. We want to have good people doing the job and they need to be paid fairly.”

c. “Now, that’s not paid in excess but it’s not being paid a miserly amount either.”

It is disgraceful and obscene that the Westminster system finds it acceptable to increase the salaries of MP’s whilst there are so many Scot’s on the breadline. Many have had no pay rise in years and the, incapacitated, unemployed and elderly are about to be hit with another round of Osborne’s austerity cuts. Surely this must be the, “straw that breaks the camel back”. Enough is enough. Scot’s need to send a clear message to Westminster that we have no interest in remaining with a political system that punishes the poor and enriches the rich. Vote, “Yes” in the referendum. Take Scotland back. Let us manage our own affairs.

Ed Miliband and Scotland England Border Controls

Ed Miliband and Scotland England Border Controls

1. Ed Miliband issued, yet another, “scare story” threatening an independent Scotland with border controls. I expect he might be referring to the shambolic £1billion computerized system, (commissioned by the last Labour government) and recently written off by the Con/Dem government.

2. Rather than perpetuating mischievous myths Ed would be better advised to address his concerns addressing the intention of the, Irish government to embrace, in full the, “Schengen” open borders scheme, should Scotland vote, “yes” to independence.

3. The, “Common Travel Area” (CTA) “Schengen” opt out, allowing the UK & Ireland to maintain border controls was only useful to Ireland so long as decisions impacting on it were mutually agreed. Introduction, without consultation of the, “botched scheme” now requires Irish citizens to travel with photographic identification and current passports together with other means of identification.

4. The, “Common Travel Area” is no more but any move by the UK government to introduce border controls between Ireland and Northern Ireland would be strenuously resisted by the Irish on both sides of the border. In any event there are in excess of 260 road traffic crossing points on the border so policing it would be impossible.

5. I expect the UK will shortly review it’s decision to remain out of, “Schengen” since parts of the agreement have been adopted over the last 4 year’s.

The UK Border Controls Fiasco

1. Launched seven years ago by Labour and further developed by the Con/Dem government the, “e-Borders” computerized system touted by the government as the definitive solution to the perceived problem of insecure border controls has , “hit the deck”, (in polite terms a fiasco) at a cost to the taxpayer of £500million, (excluding a botched cancellation penalty of £230million). In total, including staff costs the writes off is around £1billion.

a. 20% of trips were not counted in and out of Britain or checked against terror and criminal watchlists.

b. 20 million travelers avoided full screening due to recurring catastrophic IT failures and management blunders.

c. 6 million travelers arriving by train, including Eurostar were not subject to advance immigration checks.

d. 10 million sea travelers, subject only to cursory checking slipped through the net without having their personal details compared against lists of killers and dangerous fanatics.

e. 4 million air passengers are subject only to cursory checking meaning that officials were denied full use of the system, a vital weapon in the fight against terrorism

f. The system proved to be incapable of producing an accurate, “headcount” of travelers moving, “in and out” of the UK, leaving officials in the dark about the true scale of illegal immigration.

g. Government ordered to pay £230m of taxpayers’ money to giant US firm behind disastrous border control scheme.

2. The Labour government’s promise to the Nation

a. The UK border will be, “exported” to other countries, forcing anyone attempting to get into Britain to reveal their personal information in advance.

b. The information gathered and passed to the UK border controls agency will be extensively checked against watchlists, security databases and then, logged on a vast database.

c. Extremists, criminals and wanted criminals would either be arrested at the airport or turned away. Alternatively, they could be placed under surveillance to identify terrorist plots.

3. From the outset, the system soon developed into a shambles.

a. It was delayed by EU countries who refused to participate on the grounds that the system breached Brussels directives, including on data protection.

b. There are still six airlines on the continent who are refusing to participate.

c. Technical problems meant people arriving on ferries, Eurostar trains, cruise ships and small planes were not screened in advance.

d. Even when known criminals and illegals were, “flagged” by the system, airports were not phoned in advance providing warning about their impending arrival.

4. Tory MP Philip Davies branded the project an absolute disgrace stating, ” The failures of the system should be attributed to the previous Labour government who had signed off a, disastrous, catastrophic contract”. The Chief Inspector of Borders, John Vine, confirmed in his report to Theresa May, (The Home Secretary)that the, ‘electronic borders’ project had started off badly and descended into a shambles. Theresa May cancelled the contract and the government was sued and lost.
