      Britain : Facing the Abyss
      by Ian Buckley

      On the day of the London bombings, 7th July 2005, apparently a date of
      deep mystical significance – 777 - I was here ; exploring the ruins of
      Sawley Abbey, once the home of holy men and scholars, such as the
      Oxford Chancellor of seven centuries ago, William of Rymyngton.

      But given the events on the day the picture was taken, this historic
      site seems to have acquired a different resonance, an echo maybe of
      Dresden, Hiroshima and Falluja. The London bombings were, as police
      chiefs and politicians assured us some months before the event,
      `inevitable'. `Inevitable' is an interesting word, don't you think?

      Inevitable demolitions of monasteries, inevitable wars, inevitable
      factory closures and inevitable globalisation. So history slouches
      onwards, until we come to the allegedly inevitable conflict with the
      Islamic world. We tremble on the edge of the abyss, but do we really
      want to fall down into its depths, all just because of 'inevitability'?

      Our friend Gilad Atzmon has written of `Zionised Britain', and I for
      one wouldn't disagree. Nevertheless, this may not be the entire story.
      In the heartfelt and passionate words of an old Yorkshire miner,
      interviewed some years after he'd been through the gruelling and
      prolonged strike of 1984-1985 :' We have the most evil ruling class on

      For quite a long time now the British secret state has been involved
      in dubious and obnoxious activities. Thirty-one years ago came the
      bombings in Dublin and Monaghan, initially attributed to some unknown
      Northern Irish loyalist group. But the best analysis suggests that no
      such loyalist group had the technical and logistical capability to
      mount such a devastating attack on civilians, which could only have
      been perpetrated by some state agency.When you have people who are
      prepared to do this, what else might they be capable of?

      Then again, there was the infamous Kincora Boys' Home scandal, also
      in Northern Ireland, when elements of British intelligence (an
      oxymoron in this context, as in most others!) apparently ran this
      children's home as a homosexual brothel, in order to have leverage
      over local and national politicians who patronised the place. The
      `ordinary Joes' who unknowingly provided the taxation revenue
      necessary to support such malign activities were also, by and large,
      the victims of 7/7, poor harassed commuters rushing from place to
      place. Very odd that these alleged `Muslim bombers' don't ever target
      anyone of real importance!

      But possibly no more strange than the warning phone calls to that nice
      Mr. Netanyahu and the unexplained drop in the pound the day before the
      bombings. Yes, these `fanatical jihadists' have very bizarre behaviour

      It was a British officer, General Frank Kitson, who first thought up
      the concept that was later used in the formation of Al Qaeda. He
      called it the `pseudo gang' – a state sponsored group used to advance
      an agenda, while discrediting the real opposition. The strategy was
      used in both Kenya and Northern Ireland. In the case of Northern
      Ireland, most of the violence that was attributed to `Loyalists' was
      in actuality not their handiwork, but the result of the activities of
      the death squads affiliated to the British secret state.

      But it isn't really necessary to delve very intently into the
      anomalies of 7/7 to understand the situation. Better to go along with
      the simple old Roman maxim – cui bono? Who gains?

      In the wake of death and destruction in London, the man in the orange
      make-up, Phoney Blair, improved his popularity ratings, while the
      smart city investors made money on the market1. A pity you had to
      bomb those make-up girls in the Belgrade TV studios, Tony, they might
      have done a better and cheaper job of `putting your face on', thus
      saving us thousands of pounds in Prime Ministerial cosmetics.

      Of course, a very major opportunity was provided to further demonise
      Islam. In particular, the headlines in the papers of porn baron
      Richard Desmond – the Star and Express - seemed to breathe out hatred.

      It is all rather reminiscent of the writings of George Orwell, whose
      real name was Blair - unlike the horrid mountebank in No 10 Downing
      Street whose ancestral moniker is in fact Parsons. Surprisingly
      enough, his 1984 is still a set work in the English educational
      system. Too revealing by half, I would have thought - for what do we
      have in that book?

      We have the 'five minutes hate', so very similar to what the Express,
      the Mirror and the Sun have being doing over the past three weeks.
      Plus Ingsoc, a doctrine that has nothing to do with real socialism as
      understood by George Lansbury or Keir Hardie, but which has plenty in
      common with `New Labour'.

      Then there this very apt and topical quote from Orwell :

      In some ways she was far more acute than Winston, and far less
      susceptible to the Party propaganda. Once when he happened to mention
      the war against Eurasia, she startled him by saying casually that in
      her opinion the war was not happening. The rocket bombs that fell
      daily on London were probably fired by the Government of Oceania
      itself, just to keep people frightened'. This was an idea that
      literally had not occurred to him.

      `Just to keep people frightened' – what better description could there
      be for all the alarms, evacuations and other incidents over the length
      and breadth of England?

      The government will call for more fear, more repression, more
      regimentation and more abandonment of ancient liberties, and claim it
      is fighting terror. In fact it is doing nothing of the kind. Instead
      they are deliberately creating a crisis in order to push through an

      For the Arab and Muslim world this means more instability and
      destruction, and for the Western world it means the imposition of a
      virtual police state. It is vital that everyone realises this.


      "THOUSANDS of investors joined sharp institutions in making millions
      of pounds from the short-lived collapse in share prices that followed
      the terrorist strikes in London last week."
