Three sides to every story. Fake or break time. To good to be true, to bad.... it must be false!
Stains and smears living in post truth age of fear and uncertainty. Information wars Deceiver....Receivers Time for a task force and a strategy. Inconvenient truths they'd like us to conveniently forget about while they cover up talk of having to have photo ID in order to vote Images of gassed Syrian children brings outrage, accusations and assumptions. Nerve agent, secret agent, Tit for tat diplomat. Knife crime on murder mile, A reality disconnect; actual and virtual, Views from computer screen windows, Multi player, gang attack....Game Over! No extra lives here!
Taking more from the poor The cuts have stabbed the poor in the back leaving fresh wounds, amongst the scars from past attacks. Broken and dying in front of our eyes a promised land built on lies. Drink water till you drown because it's good for you. A nation drugged on coffee. Watch out for the gas supply; the arrival of reprisals. Progress! Good or bad, you decide use the red button to cast your vote. Cyber crime; a sign of the times, a world where technology constructs a speech a dead president (JFK) never made makes more sense than what the living one says. Hate speech isn't free speech, it costs....in human life!
UK gets involved in another dodgy deal and Teresa May compromises parliamentary democracy by dropping bombs on Syria without consulting parliament and without waiting for any evidence as to what happened, this is carried out under the guise of ending 'humanitarian suffering', well when USA went ahead and bombed Syria’s chemical warfare capacity in 2014 they still used them again. If UK Government wants to end humanitarian suffering, then why hasn't it got involved in Yemen where a bloody war is being raged by Saudi Arabia, who are using weapons supplied by the UK (Looks like I've answered my own question there!) Interestingly the Saudi crown prince visited the UK, USA and France the day before all three countries took part in these latest attacks on Syria, no doubt he was influencing their decision. Talking of geopolitriks you've got Iran who along with Russia back Assad’s Syrian regime, then there's also Israel bombing the Iranian militia in Syria who've been using the country as a base to support the Hezbollah in Lebanon. Just who is gonna benefit from all this? aside from the arms dealers.
No facts, the judge, jury and executioners punishment and justice one big distraction false flags flying. Dropping bombs never avoids escalation.
Why would Assad use Chemical Weapons when the war against Islamic State and rebel forces has nearly been won?
Why would Russia use nerve gas in Salisbury to poison spy’s with the world cup coming up?
Why wouldn't Britain let Russia have a sample of the nerve agent?
Britain didn't support the action the US took last time they dropped bombs to stop Syria’s use of chemical weapons....well that worked didn't it. Members of parliament voted against any involvement. So why this time?
And just who killed UN weapons inspector Dr David Kelly back in 2003 in the wake of Iraq and claims of weapons of mass destruction being exaggerated by New Labour Government, because it wasn't suicide like the establishment would like us to believe.
A BIG LIE
Create a fantastical spy thriller plot about a Russian spy poisoned by a nerve agent miles from a British Chemical Research facility. The Russians get the blame although there is no actual evidence that it came from Russia. Britain and many countries including the USA and France expel Russian diplomats as punishment, and insults are traded by foreign ministers on both sides. The Russian spy his daughter, Schipol family and a policeman who came into contact with the poison recover, and the only thing to die was the families pet guinea pig. Britain’s involvement with America in bombing Syria wasn't about the nations security it was payback for USA support in expelling Russian diplomats after the attack on the Schipols and it's future economic interest; from Chlorine Gas to Chlorine washed chicken.
The US had to retaliate and bomb Syria to cover up the fabrication of gas attacks, and as a justification to attack Syria and get at Russia. Who's got the biggest knob Putin or Trump, it doesn’t matter cos they are both great big knobs, unfortunately when their macho posturing starts, so does trouble in the world. But hey Trump can't be all bad, he's helping to bring peace to Korea, where it seems Kim Jong Un doesn't want to play the biggest dick game. The French Prime Minister looked a bit uncomfortable during a recent encounterhe had with Trump, who appeared to be having some homo-erotic love in with him during a state visit.
Syrian and Salisbury chemical weapon attacks and the retaliation have been washed away in the wake of the Windrush Generation scandal, were those and the relatives of others that came to Britain from the West Indies in the 50's and helped build Britain, keep it moving and keep it well have now been told to keep away in order to satisfy immigration targets that Amber Rudd the Home Secretary doesn't seem to know anything about, and then she does, whatever, but surely the previous Home Sec; Teresa May must have been aware of as they formed part of her 'hostile environment' for immigrants. Seeds were sown many dawns ago, from them solid oaks have grown; fear, prejudice and hatred has taken root across England’s green and pleasant lands. Great Britain is a nation built on racism, it is the dark heart of this country that continues to beat; from the days of empire and colonialism via 70's sitcoms to the death of Stephen Lawrence with the inappropriate 'gaffs' made by Prince Philip and Prince Charles thrown in for good measure, topped by anti-Semitism rows in Labour Party and this present governments immigration policy. You don't need a United Nations report to tell you something you already know! People need to stop dancing to it's beat!

13th Floor Renegades is the new album from London Rock'n'Roll err!.... renegades Last Great Dreamers. The heart and soul of Last Great Dreamers is the song writing partnership between fellow guitarists and vocalists Marc Valentine and Slyder one which has lasted on and off for 30 years, and on this, the bands third album it has been distilled and fermented to produce a very special blend of the finest Rock'n'Roll brew I've tasted for a while. The Last Great Dreamers have taken the Stones/Faces/Who and Kinks rock'n'roll templates and twisted them into something completely different and produced another kind of blueprint. Eleven electric and eclectic examples of Rock'n'Roll that dares to be different.
This is timeless and tuneful, foot-tapping, heart aching and fist thumping stuff. Vocals are subtle and soulful, delicate and defiant, these songs mean something! Drums shuffle and pound, the bass bops and bends as guitars ring and riff, screech and slide with a never say die no surrender attitude.
Opening track New Situation is a catchy rocky poppy punky affair, which sets the tone for the rest of the album without spoiling the surprises. Title track 13th Floor Renegades is a dreamy post psychedelic tale of escaping the mundane. Then there's the wired and taut New Wave feel of Speed of Light and the mellow aching beauty of For Your Information. Which is followed by the backs to the wall balls out stomping strut of Primitive Man. The fast and frantic No Sunshine and I Think I Like It have rings of 90's Britpop/Indie to them and Broken Things sounds like a fight between The Only Ones and Social Distortion, while Miles Away is a floaty, folky and mournful affair. Whose Side are You On is blessed with some lovely vocal harmonies and Going Home is a crashing, crunchy and cascading epic end to this brilliant affair. Last Great Dreamers you should be very proud! and everyone else....Time to wake up!
13th Floor Renegades is released by Ray Records on April....13th....a Friday, now for all you good people that's what I call.... lucky! Further info on Last Great Dreamers can be found on their Facebook page, or website.
