Alan Sked, the academic founder of the Anti-Federalist League which subsequently morphed into UKIP, reviews the state of politics today for Brexit Watch, with special attention to the state of politics north of the border.
He reminds us of a lot of good points which underscore the impracticability of top-down centralised government by the elite, and expose the folly of the push toward Scottish independence.
Whilst "too small and too much in debt to be independent" has some truth (ask the Greeks), "too big to be flexible and learn new tricks" also has validity, and it would seem that the trick is (a) to be solvent and (b) to find the right balance.
The premier of Albert, Canada has made a video putting forward his view of the Great Reset, thus joining the ever-growing ranks of "conspiracy theorists" who think that "they" are "out to get us". When such views break into the mainstream we know that something is up, and he doesn't hold back:

The AIER address the problem of why the WHO and Western nations broke from all previous epidemiology and instituted draconian lock-downs as adopted by the Chinese government when they realised that things were getting out of control.
The US election is beset by problems.
The mainstream media on both sides of the Atlantic were quick to declare Biden the new president-elect (why wait for the official processes to complete?) but since that time more and more evidence has been coming out that the election may have been a giant hoax, with Trump votes dumped and switched in dubious machinations within the electronic voting systems whilst suspiciously large numbers of mail-in ballots were found in the last moments (allegedly all for Biden).
Lawfare has ensued and continues, and rightly so - if the election really was swung by nefarious means then it is hard to imagine a greater crime, so the law must run its course and be seen to do so.
Alongside this process an information war is raging with the mainstream media on the one hand supporting the "nothing to see here" narrative and Facebook, Google et al censoring the alternative message on social media.
So what is the "New World Order"?
Here is a viewpoint from Sean Stone from across the pond who tries to put the NWO into some historical context, albeit from an American perspective.
Alastair Crooke (not to be confused with the late great Alistair Cooke!) writing for Strategic Culture Foundation delivers a thoughtful discourse on how "the elites" of global governance try to (more or less surreptitiously) mould our attitudes and social mores to their liking, gradually shifting and transforming their narratives the better to persuade us to accept the type of eventual governance that they have in mind for us.
Always the objective is to move away from the "bottom up" democratic style of government (in so far as it has to date been permitted us) towards the "top down" style where government is in the hands of "the elites" who tell the rest of us how we must live and what we must and must not...
Some of us have been concerned for many years now that our perfidious Parliament will allow the EAW (European Arrest Warrant) to live on well beyond its Brexit end-by date.
Torquil Dick-Erikson writing for Brexit Watch now discloses the confirmation that as far as HMG is concerned "There is no intention for extradition to any EU jurisdiction after the end of transition period to be made subject to a court ruling that there is a prima facie case".
There you have it. i don't doubt that the EAW will be "renegotiated" post "Brexit" and repackaged to look a little more like a new arrangement, but the fundamentals will remain the same.
So much for Habeas Corpus and our freedom from arrest and imprisonment without trial for prolonged, maybe indefinitely prolonged, periods. We can still be summarily arrested and...
The Drive for the Covid Vaccines
Regardless of what we think about the cause of the peak in April, we are now in December and observing what has every appearance of a normal profile of winter deaths from respiratory infections (covid + flu + rhinovirus etc).
So a number of pharmaceutical companies have spent a lot of money, as little time as possible, and a huge investment in publicity, to develop and sell a vaccine for Covid.
Let us for the moment be trusting and assume that these vaccines will be both “safe” and...
PHE national Influenza and COVID-19 surveillance report Week 48
Anyone that believes that he will concede doesn't realise that this is the culmination of everything that he has set in motion in his first term, and the gateway to everything that he will do in his second term.
Conceding the election is the last thing on his mind. Exposing the rampant illegal fraud is no less than his duty.
Jonathan Saxty writing for Brexit Watch draws our attention to the differences that the Swiss canton system bestows upon Swiss democracy, as compared to our own system.
He also draws attention to the Covert Human Intelligence Sources (CHIS) Bill that "affords police – and other public bodies – the power to forgive crimes committed in the interests of national security, preventing or detecting crime or disorder, and for economic reasons".
For economic reasons???
"The Bill provides...
David Banks writing for Brexit Watch reviews the current state of our "withdrawal" from EU defence initiatives, and finds the usual ambiguity (some might think disparity) about our military relationship with the EU post-"Brexit".
Of course, a military relationship doesn't just cover troop and equipment deployments, it must also cover inter-operability, common specifications, procurement and defence contractors.
If we can't manufacture our own arms and equipment then we will be beholden to the EU for such supplies - which could therefore be withheld in the event of policy differences. In any case, what chance do we think UK defence contractors would have of being chosen by the EU to supply their needs? In the short term they might have little option in specific areas but longer-term contracts could be progressively withheld until our defence industries...
To remind ourselves how we got here, I have linked the speeches delivered by "the Donald" to both the World Economic Forum (a.k.a. "Deep State") and the United Nations (a.k.a. the "Great Unelected" through which some think the "Deep State" is trying on the current Covid coup du monde).
Trump spoke at the UN and the WEF in Davos in both 2018 and 2020:

And at the UN in September:
Report by Independent Chief Inspector of Borders on Home Office response to cross-Channel irregular arrivals by lorry and small boat
No prizes for guessing the overall tenor of the report.
"it is hard to avoid the conclusion that it has neither the capacity nor the capabilities, in particular in respect of criminal investigation and prosecution, required to manage this threat more effectively"
To which one might reasonably add "nor the will".
The European Centre for Law and Justice exposes funding arrangements for European institutions that should make us all pay attention.
Following an earlier article in the Mail (only slightly provocatively entitled "What they DON'T tell you about Covid and how the facts can be twisted") the Dept of Health and Social Care took to Twitter to contest the DM's message:
"This article is misleading. This is a global pandemic . . . " (etc - I'll save you the rest as it's entirely unoriginal)
Haven't they heard that they can just ring up Twitter and get them to brand it as "misleading"? That way they can avoid any repercussions, such as righteous indignation from many quarters, by deflecting them onto someone else.
Ah well, maybe next time.
As it is the Mail was able to publish a follow-up, ramming home the message from their original article and pointing up the absurdity of the government setting up a tweet that was certain to attract many cogent and indignant replies:
"Sir Graham Brady,...
The AIER publishes a review of the USA's Covid-19 death statistics.
“These data analyses suggest that in contrast to most people’s assumptions, the number of deaths by COVID-19 is not alarming. In fact, it has relatively no effect on deaths in the United States”
"There have been over 262,000 deaths attributed to Covid-19 in the United States, yet total deaths have not increased in any alarming capacity; they have only mirrored existing trends"
"Deaths have remained relatively constant, yet reported deaths due to deadly conditions such as heart disease have fallen while reported Covid deaths have risen"
Anna Brees (ex-BBC) interviews Prof Robert Endres of Imperial College. The professor is a German national and brings an interesting German perspective to what is fundamentally an international problem, both at the medical level and at the political level.
"We are going somewhat back to the dark ages... it is not evidence-based anymore"
Good to see Imperial tolerates a variety of viewpoints.
Anna has asked for this video to be shared, and we are happy to oblige.
He has probably spent more time than most in reassessing his views on life and reconstructing a world view based on the evidence as he sees it.
He has trodden a path that very many of us are now having to contemplate, so if you don't fancy starting from scratch, his web-sites offer us a crash course in the re-evaluation of our world.
I would love to see his analysis on the state of play in the United Kingdom,...
Lockdown Sceptics publishes an article by well qualified authors (including Dr Mike Yeadon) which forensically explains how reliance on the PCR test is producing a "pseudo-epidemic".
"A false positive pseudo-epidemic is a well described phenomenon in the medical literature which results in an exponential rise in diagnosed cases and deaths but no excess deaths. PCR testing is renowned for it and the “second wave” of Swine Flu in 2009 was entirely a false positive pseudo-epidemic only stopped by stopping the testing"
This is the simple key point at issue which fatally undermines the whole government-by-big-pharma covid narrative, and the cogent arguments presented in this article deserve everybody's full attention, especially as we learn today that "end of lockdown" most emphatically does not involve any significant relaxation of...
