When you step out of your front door and walk away from your home, you often have no idea where you might end up or what you will find. So, one Saturday morning I went on a venture to London and when you go there, you invariably find something of interest.

I was passing through Parliament Square, across the road from the Houses of Parliament and I discovered a group of black African people gathering Some of them had flags and on the flags was the name “Ambazonia”. As a journalist I took pictures.











Less than an hour after that, I came across them again. Many were strewn across Whitehall outside of Downing Street and stopping traffic.

Please watch the video.

The New State of Ambazonia

The new name, Ambazonia, is derived from the name of the bay on their coastline, Ambas Bay and has also been referred to as being Amba Land. It is situated in the South West of Cameroon and is mainly English speaking as was the North of the country which became a part of Nigeria in 1961.






Ambazonia or South Cameroons declared independence from Cameroon (West Africa) in September 2017. It followed escalating unrest that culminated in the main Cameroon government carrying out a series of brutal attacks that have been described as genocidal in nature.

President Paul Biya has been president since 1982. That is 37 years. He would have to know what was going on, so he cannot wash his hands of the crimes being committed against these people. In fact, some of his language has led Cameroons to fear being ethnically cleansed.

There have been videos, pictures and reports produced to support the claims. These included indiscriminate killing, wholesale burning of villages, rapes and humiliating acts.

A petition by South Cameroons was presented to the United Nations and provided details of police raping students at a university.

Cause of the Divide











The South Cameroons are English-speaking citizens of South Cameroons while the rest of Cameroon is French speaking and this is the crux of the matter.

The English citizens feel strongly, and not without justification, that they are being treated as second class citizens. From being blatantly penalized in the education system for being English speaking, things have degenerated into barbaric attacks. People have had their homes torched and their young people murdered.

Like a lot of third world states, Cameroon has been in receipt of large amounts of Foreign Aid from the United Nations. That seems to have stopped. Only to be replaced by support from France.










Like a number of places in West Africa, Cameroon has suffered vicious attacks by the dreaded Boko Haram, an extremist Islamic group renowned for their violent attacks, especially against children.

While they kidnap girls, boys suffer machete attacks and being burned alive. To combat this, Cameroon has developed its own special forces unit, presumably receiving specialist training from the French military. The Cameroon special forces have quickly gained a reputation for being just as brutal as Boko Haram.

The French authorities are allegedly taking the lead in resolving the issue in South Cameroons. How they are doing that is uncertain. The British role in the matter is to “Monitor the situation.”


Meanwhile, ten leaders of the Ambazonia separatist movement were arrested whilst in exile in Nigeria a year ago. They have been facing a Yaounde military tribunal, but have refused to identify as Cameroons. Instead there have been calls for them to be returned to the sanctuary of Nigeria.



In writing this article, there are big gaps in the available information, so this is pieced together from what I have found so far.


Climate Change Uncovered

Posted on 07/01/2019

The Heresy of Global Warming Denial

Well, what a thorny topic this one is. I am sure that many people do not know what to make of what is going on regarding climate change. Probably most others though will have decided that all is true and we are all going to be cooked alive as the planet transforms itself into Venus. How can they believe any other when such a message is being delivered at multiple levels – in education, the media, so-called scientists, public officials, the entertainments industry, and through employers.  Furthermore, every weather event, from powerful winds to torrential rainfall or conversely, drought is being used as evidence that we humans are really bad for what we have done with greenhouse gases.

It goes further, if you are one of the doubters and sceptics then you risk being roundly condemned as an idiot and ignoramus. Worse, you can be treated as a heretical hater and targeted with physical and economic sanctions for your wrong-think and bigotry.  

These fears ignore counter arguments that provide for healthy discussion and the prospect of balanced views. We find all-too-often that poorly considered concepts form the back bone of public policy and, in the case of climate change, international policy. Policy becomes law along with another tier of taxation and once again the main stream media act like low IQ shrieking banshees by adopting a now boring partisan view oblivious and deaf to alternate points of view.

Climate change has become entrenched in minds as firmly as any religious belief system. It has become a dogma that form the mindset of an indoctrinated group.

In spite of Western countries proclaiming to be secular (i.e. non-religious) people always seem to want to have faith in something (even if it is just their local football team). Anyone who does not believe can expect to be condemned as a heretic and, with that label, can be heaped on all sorts of other denigrations such as “racist” or “misogynist” without any evidence that you actually are so. 


 This attitude is disturbingly authoritarian and a touch pathological   to boot. To illustrate this, listen for claims about “humans   destroying the planet” and there are “too many humans”. What   does that mean other than to suggest that there is a need for a cull   of humans. Ironically these people are not volunteering to be first   in line for the chopping block. Instead they typically have to   pointing the finger at another group to take the blame. This is   where the pathological side of identity politics rears its ugly head   for the ones to blame are white people or, more specifically white   males and even straight white males. It has to males whatever   because many of those doing the shrieking are white middle class   feminists.

Global Warming Dishonesty 

I am not going to go into all the ins and outs as that would take a scientific paper to cover all the aspects and, I am not a scientist and that is another thing, but I would encourage readers to look at Tony Heller’s productions on You Tube or Bitchute. He is not a declared scientist either, but an engineer who uses the already available and presents a story of dishonesty and downright fraud among our supposedly smarter Earth dwellers.

Let us start with a believable truth. Is there climate change? Such a question is like asking if there is air to breathe. Climate change is a constant evolution on planets having fluid atmospheres. All other planets in the solar system undergo climate change over time. Even Jupiter’s Great Red spot did not exist at one time and will disappear at some point in the future, though probably not in our lifetime.



Fluidic behaviour tends to be cyclical. The seasons, the tides, the way life and death, all of it has a cyclical aspect about it. To notice this, you do not need to be a scientist. I know of a number of farmers who could attest to this and none of them are scientists.

What has grasped the elitist world is that a) global warming is occurring; b) Co2 is the cause and c) Humans are responsible. .

Carbon Dioxide – Guilty or Not Guilty of causing Global Warming?

I will leave you to make your own mind up, but here are some truisms. Unfortunately, if you have already been indoctrinated by sustained propaganda messages and embrace the global warming claim, then you are probably going to react in a hostile manner to any possible challenge. If you are emotionally compromised in this way it suggests your thoughts are not your own but have become dogmas within you.

  1. The atmospheric Carbon Dioxide levels are at 0.04% compared to water vapour levels which average at about 3% (depending where you live) which means there is about 75 times as much water vapour than CO2. Both are greenhouse gases and CO2 is more efficient at being so, but not 75 times as much therefore CO2 cannot be entirely to blame for global warming.
  2. An ice core sample taken from Antarctica provides a record of Earth’s climate stretching back hundreds of thousands of years. What it shows are temperatures and CO2 levels. It is clear that warming and cooling occur over time and are cyclical.
  3. What is interesting from the graph is that temperature changes precede changes in CO2 levels, not the other way round. In other words, as the temperature rises so does the level of CO2 and when temperature falls, so does the CO2 level. CO2 levels follow temperature changes not the other way round.
  4. If CO2 controls climate temperature then why, when CO2 levels are at their maximum does the temperature drop and we end up with an Ice Age? Does this not suggest that other factors are involved?
  5. Apparently, sea water absorbs much of the atmosphere’s CO2, but warm water is unable to retain as much as cold water. Therefore when it is warm, the sea releases more CO2 into the atmosphere which causes a measurable rise. Conversely, when it is cold, the sea reduces the amount. Again it is temperature that controls CO2 levels.
  6. Plants like CO2. It helps them grow and also to produce more fruits, seeds and vegetables. Greenhouse gardeners can attest to this. When they introduce CO2 to their plants, they get higher and better quality yields. It follows therefore that if we were to eliminate CO2 then that would not bode well for plant life and food abundance. To try to eliminate CO2 may be an extremely stupid idea since there is a strong possibility that food production will be adversely affected.
  7. Most life congregates around the warmer regions of the Earth and only about 2% lives in the polar region. This suggests that life prefers warm climates over cold.
  8. Looking at the graphical displays, the evidence shows that the general temperature changes are trending downwards and comparative photos show that the ice caps are growing, not shrinking.

On these points, I would vote ‘Not guilty’ to the charge that CO2 is causing Global Warming or that it will be the reason why we are plunged into another Ice Age.

It may make a contributing effect, but I do not believe that it is the main driver. Its proportion in the atmosphere appears to be as a consequence of changes of temperature, not the other way round. If this is the case, then why is there such a powerful desire to force people to accept something which is obviously flawed?


Humans – Guilty or Not Guilty of causing Global Warming?

The human factor is a little more complicated since objective data has to cope with the scrutiny of subjective belief.

Looking at the Ice Core graph and other follow up displays such as temperature changes in the past 130 years, there is no getting away from the fact that the 1930s saw some of the hottest temperatures on record. All temperature graphs seem to show the same trends of the Earth going through warm periods, followed by cooler ones. These are trends that are reflected over long time periods counting in thousands of years or over shorter periods of a century. 



  1. The pro-warming supporters do seem to be guilty of not presenting data honestly. There is a tendency to display graphs showing an increase in temperatures since 1960. They conveniently miss out the earlier data, which is every bit as relevant, and shows that prior to their start point temperatures were much warmer. Starting at a low point means the trend is more likely to show an upward trend as this is the upward part of a natural cycle.
  2. Tony Heller makes the case that there is some manipulation and ‘cherry picking’ of data to try to convey an alarming warming trend.
  3. There is the moving tipping point threshold for CO2 levels. Originally, 300 parts per million was the first tipping point level. When that was crossed and nothing happened it became 350. That was also crossed, so it was moved to 400 and now, I believe it is at 450 parts per million. This is the same as “moving the goalposts”.
  4. There does appear to have been at least six Ice Ages in the UK. Humans surely cannot be held responsible for previous warming and the freeze periods that followed them. Yet the claim is that our industrialized world is set to destroy the planet and or produce the next Ice Age.
  5. There is a strong desire to show a single cause for climate change rather than a multiplicity of factors of which the human factor is just one.

a) The sun makes up 99% of the entire solar system.

b) Changes in solar energy output. Over time, the sun’s diameter expands and shrinks. We do know that the sun goes through an 11 year sunspot cycle which affects its radiation output. However, it is also believed to have much longer cycles stretching hundreds and thousands of years.

c) Changes in the Earth’s orbital path. The Earth does not orbit the sun in a smooth elliptical trajectory. It tends to orbit in a ‘corkscrew’ movement. Not only that, over a period of time it spends some years closer to the sun and other years further away.

d) Periodic changes within the Earth’s core. This could lead to significant periods of volcanic activity and may also affect the Earth’s protective magnetosphere.

e) Asteroid/ meteorite impacts. The problem with this is that you would expect such events to happen randomly which would not fit in with the regular of warming and cooling cycles.

The next question is: Are we cooling or warming? 1934 was recorded as the hottest year of the 20th Century in the USA and 1963 the coldest. Although, in 1977 people froze to death in their cars in Boulder, Texas.


Is The Global Temperature Record Credible? (version 2)


Verdict on Humans causing global warming.

As it appears that we are in fact due to cool rather than warm then the assertion is incorrect. However, that does not mean that humans are entirely innocent. Given that the climate runs in cycles and has always done so, the best we can say is that humans will make some contribution but it is not leading to warming and as there are other significant factors such as the sun involved humans are not guilty as charged.


In conclusion, the global warming argument is a massive scam designed to transfer wealth from one group of people to another group of people and they are using propaganda and deception to ‘guilt’ the masses into hand over their ‘cash’ while making them believe they are saving the planet. Meanwhile, those who dare to call out the fraud are targeted as deniers, haters and stupid.





Guns in UK Homes

Posted on 28/12/2018

Basics of Handgun Legislation in the UK

Following the Dunblane massacre in 1996, the UK Government passed the Firearms (Amendment) Act 1997 and the Firearms (Amendment) (No. 2) Act 1997, defining “short firearms” as Section 5 Prohibited Weapons. This effectively banned private possession of handguns (except for Northern Ireland). However, members of the public continued to own sporting rifles and shotguns, subject to licensing. There are 1.3 million licensed shotguns in the UK which amounts to about 1 in 64 people. However, there are also an additional 535,000 legally licensed ‘firearms’ which are not shotguns.



However, since 1996, the social climate has changed considerably in some areas. The demographic has shifted so significantly that London and other cities are no longer inhabited by traditional British people. In fact many are becoming increasingly dominated by those who’s culture is hostile to that of the host nation.


This is being repeated in much of Europe and people are waking up to the fact that they are being replaced and all that made up those people’s society, their history, their traditions and their values, are set to be swept away. Naturally, there are the more prominent individuals who are speaking up and taking action. However, the plan to replace the European people was planned a long time ago through the Kalergi Plan. 


The elites that are pushing this know and expect a reaction and so we have seen the rise and enforcement of Hate Speech laws. These are designed to shut down any complaint about what is going on. Dissidents will find themselves arrested, jailed, threatened and their lives put in danger. People are being subdued due to fear of being labelled a racist, a xenophobe and an Islamaphobe. 


The police are part of the system. They are operate as tools of the elite and can no longer be trusted to protect its citizens. Instead, they have been found to be used as weapons of oppression to silence those that dare raise a voice.

We have seen thousands of British girls being raped and authorities being prepared to do nothing except let it happen. The media, the politicians and the legislature have conspired to suppress action against those who would harm the most vulnerable. Instead, they chose to call anyone who calls them out as bigots and hatemongers when all they are doing is hiding their own crimes against humanity.

Hundreds of dissidents have found themselves being raided, arrested and charged for having the courage to speak up. The more prominent ones have been jailed and have suffered attacks while in jail. They have been threatened with murder and serious assault and these threats have been extended to their families.

Given that we no longer can rely on the police to protect dissidents effectively, is it not time to allow such individuals to legitimately keep firearms in their homes?

Skins and Borders

Posted on 16/12/2018

Skins, borders, protective layers and, what ever else you would like to call them, are natural barriers that separate an object from its surrounding environment. They occur everywhere across the universe from galaxies and solar systems to seashores and blood cells. They give an entity its integrity and are vital for the efficient management of systems. Without them we would not exist.

For a human settlement, the rule is the same. The borders of towns, tribes, families and countries are vital for the functioning and protection for all who reside within the different forms of human community. They are not created due to racism or xenophobia or any other arbitrary human interpretation.They are natural and necessary. Boundaries exist for a reason.

2g.Heliosphere_Image_main_BoundariesLgThe sun sends out a constant flow of charged particles called the solar wind, which ultimately travels past all the planets to some three times the distance to Pluto before being impeded by the interstellar medium. This forms a giant bubble around the sun and its planets, known as the heliosphere. 


Earth’s Magnetosphere

Enveloping our planet and protecting us from the fury of the Sun is a giant bubble of magnetism called the magnetosphere. It deflects most of the solar material sweeping towards us from our star at 1 million miles per hour or more. Without the magnetosphere, the relentless action of these solar particles could strip the Earth of its protective layers, which shield us from the Sun’s ultraviolet radiation.

Feminist Cover Up of Male Art Rejected by Public

Posted on 10/11/2018

Literal Cover Up

Notice to Customers

Visitors hoping to admire Lord William Armstrong’s celebrated collection at a National Trust exhibition were furious to find ‘room after room’ of artwork covered with white sheets.

The trust, which owns his Lordship’s former home of Cragside, covered up paintings and sculptures depicting men to highlight the ‘lack of female representation in art’.

It meant visitors who had paid up to £49 to view the famous collection found almost half of the paintings hidden behind white sheets, while sculptures of men had bags placed over their heads.


Thing Not to See



One said: ‘It was ridiculous. Whole corridors and room after room were completely covered.’

It was so unpopular that staff reportedly had to empty the visitor comments box three times a day because it was overflowing with complaints.

The trust initially defended the ‘thought-provoking exhibition’ but later admitted: ‘Sometimes it doesn’t work as we intended.’



Dear Sir/ Madam

As a life member, I am absolutely appalled by the report of covering up art at Cragside because the creators were male.

Who on Earth thought that was ever a good idea? I would have hoped the NT was above identity politics and misandric behaviour that has become all too prevalent in many areas of life.

Your sincerely,

James Williams


Dear James

Thank you for your email.

Thank you for your email and for raising your concerns about our recent exhibition at Cragside.

As part of this year’s national programming ‘Women and Power’, which marks the centenary of some women being awarded the right of the vote, we are highlighting the history and important stories of the women who shaped the properties now in our care. The exhibition ‘The Great Cragside Cover up’ was a continuation of this programming, created by students from Newcastle University. The exhibition saw a small number of statues and portraits of men covered to help shine a light on the women who shaped Lord Armstrong’s work and home.

This temporary student exhibition (which ran from 13 October until 5 November) was not about censoring art or being politically correct, but to encourage people to look at the collection differently and to stimulate debate. We know it is not unusual for some people to dislike or disagree with what they see in contemporary art. We’re glad that our members and visitors have had the opportunity to debate this exhibition and to feed back their thoughts, which shows that our exhibition has been successful in drawing attention to the way our collections are presented and for highlighting the history of this important property.

We are always looking at ways in which we can bring the history and stories of our places to life for visitors and your feedback about the exhibition will help inform and shape our plans.

Conservation remains at the heart of what we do and thanks to the support of our members and donors, we are spending more than ever before on conservation work. Part of conservation, however, involves understanding and communicating why these places are important to protect so that future generations will continue to care for them.

I hope this is helpful and thank you for your support.

Kind regards
