    Your daily vaccination against the non-stop corporate media’s dogs of war – the media.
    George Galloway tells us all what is really going on.

    I’m going to start at first principles because nobody else is.
    I want to ask why Britain has chosen the side of Jaysh al-Islam.
    I want to ask why a British secret service man, seconded from the British Secret Service, an employee of the British Foreign Office, founded the so-called White Helmets and why the British government funds them to the tune of hundreds of thousands of pounds a year.

    I want to ask when Britain took the policy position that we were ready to ally ourselves with the Army of Islam and send them money, millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money, to the Army of Islam. The clue is in the name, dear listeners.

    I want to ask when Britain took the policy decision that the very same people who murdered our children at the Manchester Arena a year ago, the very same people who murdered our people on Westminster Bridge, on London Bridge, in Borough Market.

    I want to ask when we took the decision that we were the allies of the Jihadist alphabetical soup of Islamic extremism that’s at war in Syria.

    And I want to ask why no British journalist asks those fundamentalist questions.

    Compulsive listening.
    Free yourself from the corporate media.

    What can you say…


    Well yes there is something I’d like to say Ms Upston:

    “I can only assume these are decisions made by frontline staff who are doing their very best to help people in need,” Ms Upston said.

    It was your miserable government who allowed the situation to deteriorate to this appalling state.

    • Exkiwiforces 2.1

      WTF, surely they can’t be that stupid by putting people into tents??? Might be fine during the summer, but winter then someone needs their head read… or be showed the front door to the nearest Social Welfare office or whatever they call themselves these days in management speak.

      Having live in tents for 6mths ops isn’t much fun also having live in a stage 3 pit with over head protection was shit also, but forcing Nz’s Homeless into tents shows a complete lack of compassion etc etc….

    • McFlock 2.2

      holy shit.
      That’s gobsmacking

    • AsleepWhileWalking 2.3

      Checkpoint today interviewed nurses not striking which revealed some nurses are living in cars. The state of our housing.

    • AsleepWhileWalking 2.4

      Ah…the predictable defense but stopped short of calling it empowering.

      She says it agreed to fund the tents “in an effort to support its clients choices” and did not rule out supplying more than the 20 it could identify.

    • mikes 2.5

      It is disgusting that people are applying for hardship grants to buy tents to live in. However, is it preferable for WINZ staff to give the grants in these instances or would you prefer they said no?

      I’m certain that the person applying for the grant is not wanting a no.

      I’m not saying its an acceptable situation, just that its better that these grants were approved rather than not..

    Sorry Ed, change of topic. I just want to say how proud I am of the Coalition. They have raised my spirits. Putting a line in the sand. Calling halt.

    Half will say ” not enough ” The rest ” too much” So, probably ‘ just right!!’
