Harold Smith, who died 3 January 2010 is almost unknown except for the few who are aware of his courageous and lifelong struggle to expose the murderous duplicity of British Imperialism in Nigeria. Smith, in 1960 then a novice, young colonial administrator in Nigeria attempted to expose the rigged and phoney ‘independence’ that the British had foisted on the Nigerian people. I wrote this back in 2006 and given all the current events in Africa, I felt it worthwhile reprinting it. There is also a followup piece, ‘Hidden histories confirmed: So much for the ‘Mother of Parliaments’‘, that I wrote a couple of years later. There is also a tribute page to Harold here.

When it comes to food, it would be in your best interest to realize that you are being lied to on a daily basis. If a big company grows it, processes it and sells it, then it’s probably garbage that you’d be better off not consuming. In some cases, this problem goes far beyond “garbage” into another realm entirely.

[I'm not sure if responding to this BBC survey is worth the effort or not, but who knows? In any case, I've just completed it and zoomed it off. Perhaps, just perhaps, if enough of us respond, something might change, though the role of the BBC in propagandizing for the state is so crucial in preserving the status quo, the odds are against it. But it does reflect the fact that people are finally wising up to the role of BBC and the powers that be know this. WB]
Want to help research how the BBC covers the NHS?
The BBC is asking for your views on its news and current affairs coverage. This is a good chance to feedback any comments you may have on its coverage of the NHS.
Details of the review are here.
It’s always best to cite examples of specific reports, and why you have concerns, rather than just say NHS coverage in general is biased.
Tilting At Easy Targets: Climate Change And The ‘Highly Ideological’ Liberal Mindset By David Cromwell
27 September 2013 — Media Lens
When a senior UN climate official warns that the world is ‘heading for a heart attack’ (The Times, September 23, 2013), there is clearly no time to lose in taking the radical action necessary to avert disaster. But we also have to understand why it is that no matter how many scientific warnings and ‘wake up calls’ are issued, we are still headed for climate chaos.

In 24 hours, the world’s top scientists will release the most important report in decades:proving once and for all that climate change is a massive threat, but that government action now can stop catastrophe. It’s a global wake up call to save our planet, but big oil and dirty energy have a powerful bully who’s rallying to stop the truth from coming out.

Damascus - Will 1000 American ‘Human Shields’ Stop Another Criminal War?
A sort of roller coaster atmosphere pervades Damascus these days with “good” and “bad” news rising and falling, often by the quarter hour. Much of the population is monitoring closely the news and quickly expressing their interpretations of the latest media reports and rumors as well as predicting the fairly precise timing of the now assumed American attack on their country.

KERRY: The United States government now knows that at least 1,429 Syrians were killed in this attack, including at least 426 children.
BROWN: The chilling numbers stood out from the U.S. intelligence assessment released this afternoon. And, lest anyone doubt, the secretary of State insisted, its findings are as clear as they are compelling.

Yes, I know I keep banging on about the BBC but it is such an influential power, not only nationally but also globally, so much so that its pronouncements are most often taken as gospel (objective, impartial, unbiased). But any reading of the history of the BBC should disabuse you of this piece of fiction.
