Gazette gets it wrong once again

I just wonder how objective the journo's are over at The isle of Thanet Gazette, taking a gander over breakfast and after a nights grafting , just prior to getting a bit of kip I see that editor Rebecca Smith has let through what I think is a misleading account of my blog in their "best of the Blog's".

I just hope Becca is not allowing her own opinions to colour her newspapers content.

Anyhow perhaps I should do a review of the best of the press,


  1. Tony you must realise Newspapers have to colour the stuff they publish it helps sell copy. All of our blogs are coloured by our opinions why would our local rag be any different and now ECR is no longer on the staff we wont be getting any more guzzunders.

  2. coloured or white washed ?

  3. I shouldn't blog first thing in the morning particularly with a mobiled phone and I'm prone to errors just noticed error in title.

  4. Is it not strange that when approached with seemingly dull news the local rags will jump to cover the story.... Yet when they are emailed with a story directly implicating certain councillors in corruption and underhand dealings they suddenly become mute...

    Just exactly runs the local rags now, or is this something else we are not allowed to know???

  5. 05:38 PM, it could be because the local press don't much fancy being sued when they print unfounded and now, almost historic, stories about local councillors.

    Being rather left of centre in their emphasis, I am sure the Gazette would dearly love to expose scandals about Tory councillors but they would need a bit more than hearsay evidence.

    Oh, and before you come screaming back, they have already covered the drink driving and cat torturing ones to extinction.

  6. Anon05:38
    Tory I am sure they would love a Labour Independant or Lib Lab Con. It is drama that sells papers and they dont care who they slag off so long as its a juicy story.

  7. I tend to think of the local rag's pieces of writing like I do the US version of Supernanny...

    At the begining they should have a statement saying that this is all true, but some parts are scripted and added for viewer's enjoyment.

  8. anon 1.31

    For example what did tory cllr Hayton say on oath at Aldwych High Court 1998.

    No need for hearsay. Just a grand to pay for a court transcript.

    But there again an honourable elected representative would recognise a valid public interest question and simply answer.

    The historic part of this is his continuing silence.

    The question here is not about the press risking being sued. It is about why the press, in the public interest, do not question such cllrs and then publish both the question and the cllr's answer.

    Another aspect of local press is the lack of investigative journalism. For example press emailed me about an issue of allaged anabolic steroid abuse amongst Thanet Police officers (in the wake of Pc Blurestone murdering his family before taking his own life and in the wake of Pc Ian Hill breaking a handcuffed prisoner neck and the court being told that Pc Hill thought of himself as a "Thanet street warrior")

    I identified witness(es) to the press at their request. But they don't call and take evidence to support publication.

    With complaints about Kent Police handling of the Deal Barracks IRA bombing 1989 I played a significant part in bringing about two remedies in process:

    The Article 2 Inquest procedure

    The creation of IPCC

    I return to the question to Hayton what he said on oath at Aldwych High Court in 98. IF the eleven Royal Marines murdered at Deal Barracks 1989 were today to benefit from an Article 2 Inquest. Cllr Hayton would have to answer that question to HM Coroner. No ifs no buts. Answer Hayton !

    That is the rational test to apply.

    Yet he maintains his silence.

  9. Tony

    Article 2 Inquest. You are seeing one. The suicide bombers inquest. Featuring matters like what did MI5 know and when and were the attacks preventable.

    If such an inquest had been available to the 11 murdered Royal Marines in 1989 then all such questions about whether the attack was preventable would have been put at inquest to Kent Police.

    What did they do in their security warnings inquiry. Did they refer back to earlier warnings (such as Brigadier Harvey to MI5 re keyholders and IRA supportive right wing accessing the barracks 1982)

    All those matters which Kent Plod have resnted being questioned and comnplained about these past years. Nowadays all those questions fall under the jurisdiction of the Article 2 Inquest ... was there a failure of authority to protect life in accordance with Article 2 of the European Convention of Human Rights.

    And again the other inquest case to feature in my submissions to the European Court of Human Rights. The death of a child patient in post op ICU 1995 Guys hospital during Petbow hospital backup generator failure which cut power to life support. If an Artcile 2 Inquest had been available for that child then all sorts of questions would have been put to Cummins Petbow. And to the Kent Police Deal Barracks security and bombing case teams (re failure to cross refer or accept crime complaints relating to unreliability of Petbow generators)

    In August 1997 Sir John Grugeon of Kent Police Authority called on Chief constable for inquiry and report into mattgers including Deal Barracks and the Guys child death.

    Whilst this call for inquiry was open did Cllr Hayton tell Aldwych High Court there was no procedure of inquiry touching on the defendant in the libel action former tory Cllr George Maison ?

    If the eleven murdered Royal Marines or the child death at Guys were given Article 2 Inquests today then Hayton would have to answer. Did he conceal Article 2 related inquiries from the knowledge of a High Court Judge ?

    So why doesn't he answer to the press or to the blog ?

    Stop feeling sorry for him. Stop pretending he is indulging a dignified silence. Ask for him to answer in public domain.

  10. In my opinion the councillors ,police, press, courts all work together alongside their masonic friends to ensure the public are kept in the dark.

    I wouldnt trust any of them nor expect the slightest bit of truth to pass from their lips.

    Might as well whistle in the wind for any chance of justice.

  11. Got this from a web site called namaste, its a lengthy read but worth it:

    Elizabeth Beckett


    Namaste Magazine Vol 10 Issue 2
    PO Box 127, Shrewsbury SY3 7WS
    Tele: + 44 (0)1743 341303


    Mrs Elizabeth Beckett hands over a
    letter to her local Police Sergeant
    asking the Chief Constable of Penrith,Cumbria to protect her rights under the Constitution.

    Student of the British Constitution -
    83 year-old Elizabeth stands alone against our TREASONOUS GOVERNMENT

    Will you look the other way?

    By The Namaste Team

    This is an update concerning Mrs Elizabeth Beckett’s legitimate Constitutional stance against an illegal tax system and treasonous government. A story that should be on the front page of every newspaper, but has remained unreported! This amazingly selfless lady has studied the British Constitution in great depth. Her initial interest in the law began when she was a District Officer’s wife in India where her father, a High Court Judge for many years, was party to drawing up the 1935 India Act of Independence.

  12. This is so precisely true of what is taking place today, not only in Britain, but other countries of the Commonwealth, and the USA - this is the Common Purpose. Unmasking Common Purpose (page 36)

    We and our colleagues both in the UK and USA, are deeply concerned with the direction that both our nations are heading, yet so many seem woefully ignorant. This is not because people are stupid but they lack time and interest to inform themselves, largely because of the education system and mass media control with mind manipulations. We see and hear people acting like sheep, unheeded by the ever emerging totalitarian state, unquestioning, unwilling to research and blindly accepting lies and half-truths from those who can only be best described at misinformed and in the main, deliberate liars.
    Part of this disinformation relates to our Council Tax in the UK. For the benefit of our overseas readers, Council Tax is a tax on domestic property collected by local councils in the UK. The council is supposed to use this revenue to pay for local services such as schools, rubbish (garbage) collection, roads and street lighting, etc.
    Fiscal Prerogative

    Elizabeth felt driven to research the issue of Council Tax accounts, having observed various related, suspicious news articles in the press one of which involved the North West Regional Council of the UK purchasing a house in Brussels, a totally inappropriate action in view of the sufferings of the Cumbrian fishermen and farmers. This alarmed her to the fact that she might well, as a law abiding honest Council Tax payer, be assisting in the potential breakup of her country. We must emphasise that Constitutional Law is not a matter of politics, whether one votes to drive on the left or the right, but a matter of law like the dividing of Britain into ‘Lander’ such as the county of Kent becoming part of France, and Wales becoming part of Ireland etc. That is against our law and Elizabeth said she could not pay for the destruction of the sovereignty of this country. She then asked for full disclosure of how her Council Tax is being spent. This has not been forthcoming because of the liability order against her; the order is an executive order and in Britain alone is governed by the Royal Prerogative. The Enforcement Officer and people in charge of the courts refused to admit that the Liability Order could be challenged in any way. According to the Petition of Right of 1627 all taxation should be honoured by Parliament, under the Royal Assent and Parliament cannot pass acts that are against our Constitution.

    Elizabeth further discovered a covert plan to do with the regional assemblies. These are voluntary bodies that are designed to break up England, e.g. Northumberland up to Carlisle will became part of Germany. This was not mentioned in the Labour Party manifesto.

    Amongst the papers she handed to the judge at her trial, were the details of Common Purpose and their assemblies, which have increased by 500% since the year 2000. Taxation emanates from the Chancellor’s Office and these are illegal under what is known as the ‘fiscal prerogative’ and the ‘Petition of Right’. Because these assemblies are voluntary bodies, they are not available for funding by the taxpayer. Our Constitution states that ‘all laws’ that go through Parliament ‘must have Royal Assent, in order to become law.’ Instead, they are now validated on a false claim that the Royal Assent is automatic. However, the power to grant this is part of the prerogative, which it impassable.
    The automatic assent was invented by the Fabian Prime Minister Asquith who gave the qualification based on the premise that Queen Ann had been the last monarch to send back a bill. The implication being that the monarch could not send back bills, whereas in fact, their power lies in the support of our Constitutional Laws by refusing to give Assent to bills that are unconstitutional.

  13. The Parliament Act

    In fact Edward VII had refused to pass the Parliament Act in 1910 and as such Asquith had to go to the country for a vote which he lost. A plan was devised to get this bill back, so he invited 40 Fabian Socialists and 82 Sien Fien to join his party in order to destroy the House of Lords which had been holding on to the fiscal prerogative and in so doing he set out to destroy the British Constitution.

    The Parliament Act is actually illegal under the Constitution and the 1848 Treason and Felony Act, which states that neither House, Lords nor the Commons has power above the other. The 1911 Act altered the ‘fiscal power,’ which according to our Constitution cares for all taxpayers, as stated under the Petition of Right (part of the Constitution - No taxation without representation). This puts taxation illegally into the hands of the majority political party in the Commons, and without any amendment allowed from the House of Lords.

    At the time of the French Revolution and the American Independence, political parties weren’t fixed as in the Masonic Constitution of America, which is based on the principal of divide and rule. Whereas in Britain, the British Constitution was made by the People for the People and the monarch holds them together according to our Constitutional laws. In relation to this fact, Elizabeth put forward to the judge the question of Brussels acting illegally under European Laws which invalidated the court itself. e.g. the 1988 Mercantile Shipping Act in relation to Spaniards fishing within the British 12 mile limit. Brussels overruled it and fined the British £300,000. In doing this Brussels claimed rights over our Sovereign and Parliament who had passed the Act. She pointed out to the court under this ruling it had no validity. At which point the judge shut her up and said, “I am under contract to make a liability order against you since the order allowed no exception.”

    This is entirely against our constitutional laws. Elizabeth then asked for leave to appeal. The judge replied, “You can do what you like.”

    Elizabeth explained to the judge that Queens Council has given her his opinion, “Technically under the Rules of Erskine May, it is stated the Automatic Assent, if not complied with, would invalidate ALL laws since 1911”.

  14. Why are you making this potentially dangerous and difficult stance at your time of life?

    “I do it for my children, grandchildren and for all our ancestors - all those who have died for our freedom. Do you want to see your children in chains? I was in India during the war and knew about the fight against the Japanese and I knew about the earlier war and I quote John Edmonds... ‘When You Go Home, Tell Them Of Us And Say,
    For Their Tomorrow, We Gave Our Today’” ~ John Maxwell Edmonds (1875 -1958)

    Namaste: What can readers do to help you?

    Elizabeth: “Talk about the Constitution. Research it. Know it. Know that it exists and help to keep it alive against the evil forces dedicated to its destruction. Please send donations however small, to Namaste Magazine for the Elizabeth Beckett Constitutional Legal Fund”

  15. Elizabeth has further suggested the following: Readers should consider raising the following points as set out below, with their local council. Bear in mind that it is probable that Common Purpose is operating in you area. Councils cannot take taxes for an organisation that cannot achieve an audit. It is illegal under the Local Government Act 1972, which is still used for auditing local government accounts. All those who pay Council Tax should write to their local council and quote section 239 of the 1972 ACT.

    1). You as the Council have the right to oppose or depose acts in Parliament.
    Under your oaths of allegiance, the laws in the Bill of Rights of 1689 make clear this country CANNOT be ruled by ANY foreign power: “No foreign Prince, person, Prelate, State, or Potentate, hath or ought to have any Jurisdiction, Power, Superiority, Pre eminence, or Authority Ecclesiastical or Spiritual within this Realm.”
    They also added two codicils at the end of the Bill of Rights “Any amendments to the bill after the 23 October 1689 shall be void and not lawful, and this bill is for all time”.

    2). This law and its oath are not subject to Parliament because they were given to Parliament by the People whose WILL is supreme over Parliament.
    This means Parliament may not allow any part of the aforementioned oath to be breached side-stepped or ignored. This Bill of Rights precludes and effectively forbids Parliament from passing any bill like the 1972 EEC Act, the Treaty of Rome or any other European legislation which gives them any say at all in the governance of England. It also precludes Parliament from passing any laws contrary to the spirit of this Bill of Rights.

    Chief Justice Beresford said; “You must look on the spirit of the law not just how it is written.”
    The Scots have their own version of this law. Indeed the people and Parliament were told the 1972 EEC Act was a purely trading agreement with no Constitutional impact at all!

    3). Since you use the Local Government Act for your audit, I wish to draw your attention to another services’ misdemeanour and that is you have been paying my council tax in to an unaudited administration (this is the 13th year).

    4). If I were to pay my Council Tax I would be complicit in this illegality. Even more seriously, I would be allowing without complaint, the present Government’s intention to herd this country over to this illegal administration.

    5). Under the powers given to you under section 239 you have the power to refuse to agree this and would be acting illegally if you did not.

    6). This applies to any council, PRESS them to ACT under these laws.
    Do you want to be like the judge acting illegally under European law? Or do you want to do something about it? We must never forget, our Constitution was made by our ancestors (often with their lives) not by Parliament.

  16. Elizabeth gave the following information for our American readers: As far as the American Constitution is concerned, Jefferson and co made a Masonic Constitution, but they did not wipe out the existing British Constitution on which the colonies had lived for two hundred years. This is the basis of your law and customs

    The English Constitution includes:

    1). Magna Carta, (which the Supreme court used for the release of the people in Guantanamo Bay

    2). The Petition of Right 1627

    3). The Bill of Rights of 1689

    4). The 1700 Act of Settlement

    These legal statutes were made by the people from whom the colonies are descended, only rubber stamped by British Parliament, (governing the colonies at the time) until independence. It is the basis of your Law and your Constitution. The United States Constitution is subject to the British Constitution.
    The only elements of the US Constitution that differ fron the British Constitution is the royal prerogative and Christianity. The prerogative can exceptionally be used by the President, but is not part of the law as it is with us in the UK. However, the people of the USA cannot rely on the 'prerogative', all they can do is find the relevant phrases that can fight orders. These can be found in the Bill of Rights 1689 and chapter 29 of Magna Carta. Good luck

    “Please remember that to possess INFORMATION,
    you must sift through mountains of disinformation (lies),
    misinformation (mistakes),
    and nonninformation (distractions).
    But first, you have to want to.”

    ~ Harold Thomas (late)
    A Search for the Truth is a Dangerous Thing

  17. For readers to understand. KNOW THIS.
    The 'prerogative power' is given to the monarch by the PEOPLE, under the Bill of Rights of 1689 and Magana Carta. The monarch agrees to protect our laws and customs under the Coronation Oath and the Constitution. Failure do so is TREASON against the people! We are protected from GESTAPO type (executive) law by the 'prerogative'. This is what the New World order is trying to take away from us. This is our ancient law. Therefore, why has the monarch signed FIVE illegal treaties taking us into a crimalised organisation -the EU which is completely against our Constitution??

    Elizabeth has now applied for an interlocutory injunction to stop Brown and his associates taking us, the People of the UK further into an illegal administrative situation. (Anyone can and should do this). It is illegal for a government to be financially involved with an organisation that cannot even audit its own accounts. The EU has not audited its accounts for the past 13 years.

    Elizabeth, has informed us that recently, a local council representative had spoken to her by phone, they said they will block her High Court Appeal on the grounds it applies to the whole of England.


    Dear Mr Brown

    It appears that you are acting under the Constitutional Reform Act of 2005, imagining that you, as a Prime Minister, hold the 'prerogative power.'

    Are you sir, aware of the meaning of the 'PREROGATIVE POWER'?
    Have you taken constitutional legal advice on this very serious action of entry into the EU?

    If so from whom have you sought such advice?

    Are you aware that this is a serious crime against the People of Britain? It is TREASON.

    Yours Sincerely

    Mrs Elizabeth Beckett


  19. Of course now all the above is in Cameron's CON-DEM parties ball court

    free press or freedom of speech , dont bet on it

  20. It would seem that most of the immediately preceeding comments stem from the same source and have been repeated to the point of utter boredom around the Thanet blogs. Surely this unadulterated garbage should be treated as 'Spam' and deleted accordingly.

    Danger is, Tony, that with Bertie and ECR now indisposed, you stand to receive the bulk of this rubbish.

  21. Or may be Bluenote you are worried that the people of Thanet might not agreed with you and may indeed be far more awake than you give them credit for.

  22. I am really not bothered whether people agree with me or not, my friend, but do feel you are flogging something of a dead horse with these repetitive accusations. These blogs are a source of entertainment where people can discuss, agree or disagree with the subjects introduced by the blogger.

    Unfortunately you see them as an outlet for your oft repeated accusations without any regard to the subject matter. I would suggest, sir, that you have reached the stage of being a total bore.

    The latter is a pity because you obviously do a lot of research and you might be better employed using those talents to comment on the issues raised rather than your pet hobbyhorse all the time.

  23. I could suggest the same of you, but being much to polite to sink to the level of calling you a bore . I will refrain from doing so.

    Although, these blogs could be considered a source of entertainment for some they also contain a wealth of information for others.
