On a recent trip to Israel, the Conservative’s Matthew Hancock MP, announced proposals designed to outlaw anti-Israel boycotts and the Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions (BDS) campaign.
There has been much vociferous debate on the Conservative Government’s attempt to ban boycotting Israel.
What you may not know is that Matthew Hancock MP, the Conservative MP responsible for this effectively anti-lobbying campaign, has himself received £22,000 from lobbyists.
Matthew Hancock took £18,000 from city currency manager Neil Record, a key backer and board member of the UK lobby group, Global Warming Policy Foundation, which is well known for casting doubt on established climate change science. At the time of receiving the funding, Matthew Hancock was Energy and Climate Change Minister.
When Hancock was not busy stealing stationery from the taxpayer, he took a further £4,000 payment from Neil Record, again this time in Record’s capacity as the Chairman of the Institute of Economic Affairs.
One has to wonder why there hasn’t been greater scrutiny on the relationship between Record and Hancock. Who is Neil Record? And why has he donated £22,000 to Mr Hancock since 2010?
Let’s get this right, Matthew Hancock doesn’t want taxpayer-funded charities to lobby ministers, but is happy to accept money from the chairman of an organisation that uses its work to justify the anti-lobbying cause.
If you haven’t found this gross hypocrisy staggering just yet, then hold, because it gets a whole lot more risible.
Matthew Hancock chose to make his statement while on a trip to Israel, which has been greatly covered by the Conservative Friends of Israel LOBBY group . This of course isn’t the first time that Matthew Hancock has been LOBBIED by the Zionist LOBBY to further their interests.
The fact of the matter is that the Zionist lobby is increasing its pressure on our government, whether that takes its form in BICOM lobbying the FCO, or the CFI taking MPs on junkets to Israel , whilst the entire time telling us that any forms of non-violent and direct action in support of human and ethical rights is wrong.
Much is made of the great and unshakeable relationship between Britain and Israel, if that’s the case, why are the two countries constantly spying on one another?
It’s laughable to think that the apartheid state of Israel wouldn’t have existed, if it hadn’t been for the Zionist project’s chief architects, Herzl & Weizmann addressing Lord Rothschild, who LOBBIED British politicians and in particular Balfour to create the state of Israel.
We’d be even more foolish to think that our politicians are above being bought. Whether that’s the Cash for Questions scandal, or Formula One’s boss Bernie Ecclestone’s Million pound donation to Tony Blair to ensure Formula 1 would be exempt from the general ban on cigarette advertising at sporting events. From the Hinduja Brothers wooing of our politicians, to more recently, the now disgraced Patrick Mercer MP who fell foul of a lobbying sting.
Aside from the monetary motivation, there are many ideological reasons why MP’s are suckered in by the Zionist lobby. One only needs to read the brilliant expose by the former British Ambassador Craig Murray, on the hushed up scandal of Liam Fox MP, the FCO and the Zionist lobby’s attempts to subvert our political processes to favour Israel.
Whilst the secrecy surrounding the Al-Yamamah arms deal between Britain and Saudi Arabia, a deal large enough to keep BAE systems afloat for the past 20 years, is symptomatic of Britain’s double standards when it comes to LOBBYING for weapons contracts the world over.
For well over a hundred years now, grass roots direct action groups such as ourselves have taken part within a free democratic system, that should actively allow and promote free speech, human rights and ethics before profits.
The system has been abused and corrupted by the elite and moneyed special interest groups and lobbyists to subvert Britain’s political agenda, to one which is not in his or her citizens’ favour.
In terms of shaping public opinion, the “Guerrilla activism” undertaken by the London Palestine Action group shows exactly what can be done to highlight Israel’s abuses of human rights in Palestine, as part of Israeli Apartheid Week 2016 .
This Conservative Government has continued the work of the Blairite Labour Government before it. Seeking to shut down and criminalise dissenting voices and decency, stripping away our civil liberties, with ever more encroaching draconian laws; and that should be a concern to all of us.
