500,000 people hungry in Britain according to Oxfam-CAP report

UKA report published on 20th May 2013 by well-known charities Oxfam and CAP estimated that over 500,000 people living in Britain are reliant on food aid and “food banks”.

The report titled “Walking the Breadline – The Scandal of food poverty in 21st Century Britain” noted that the sharp rise in food poverty is caused by:

  • Increasing levels of underemployment
  • Low and falling income
  • Rising food and fuel prices

The report raises the risk that, the growth in food aid demonstrates that the social safety net is failing in its basic duty to ensure that families have access to sufficient income to feed themselves adequately.

US Muslims are more Moderate … Washington post

The Washigton Post ran an article on 30th April 2013, entitled “Poll: U.S. Muslims more moderate than Muslims worldwide”

This is how you INSULT someone while trying to make them believe you are COMPLEMENTING them …

It’s like saying, the US is doing better than Nazi Germany, since 1991 till 2013 the US has fought 8 wars (Persian Gulf, Somalia, Haiti, Yugoslavia and of course Afghanistan and Iraq. Certainly not forgetting the Libyan “intervention” and Syrian “aid” to rebels) while Hitler fought just one war.

In the words of  CHRIS MATTHEWS: “Well, The Washington Post is not the liberal newspaper it was, Congressman, let me tell you. I have been reading it for years and it is a Neocon newspaper.”

Muslims are moderate but will resist oppression.

According to BBC the fake bomb detectors which were based on a Golf ball finder toy were sold to Georgia, Saudi Arabia, Niger and Iraq.

The fraudster James McCormick  had even managed to raise interest from the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defence (MoD). As “an Essex policeman organised a demonstration which was watched by an MoD inspector”.

Iraqis were the victims effected most, as the Iraqi Government spent over $85 million on 6,000 devices. The number of Iraqis killed as a result of explosives and weapons smuggled undetected by this fiasco is unknown but it must be in thousands. It is worth noting that in 2011 there were 2256 terrorist attacks in Iraq killing over 4200 Iraqis and hundreds of Non-Iraqis.

  1. Iraq’s Government Must demand REFUND of the monies paid for this deadly toy.
  2. UK authorities must be held accountable for failure to detect, stop and apprehend a fraudster who workedmanufactured and sold “death” on the United Kingdom’s soil.
  3. Iraqi, Georgian, Saudi and Niger victims who were injured or have their loved ones killed by explosives must demand COMPENSATION from this fraudster and from the UK government.
  4. A formal PUBLIC APOLOGY is to be issued by UK Prime Minster David Cameron to every victim of those countries.
  5. The MoD inspector who watched the demonstration must be brought to justice with his supervisor for failing to report an obvious attempt of Fraud, Deception and Money Laundering.
