Bring Back British Rail- a surefire vote winner


This piece of mine appears in today's First Post.

Neil Clark: Labour should pledge to re-nationalise railways and put UK on a par with other Europeans.

Here we go again. Britain's train users, who already have to pay by far and away the highest fares in Europe, are to be hit with even more above- inflation increases in the New Year..........


Not surprisingly, Labour has lambasted the government, calling the price hikes "eye-watering" and claiming that they are "the direct consequence of the Tory-led government's decision to cut too far and too fast".


But Ed Miliband could - and should - do an awful lot more.

You can read the whole of the piece here.

UPDATE: You can sign a petition, addressed to the government, calling for the renationalisation of the railways here. Do try and spare a couple of minutes to sign it, and tell your friends about the petition too.

@Neil Clark

I have been keeping tabs on information regarding the Norwegian terrorist Brevik when information emerged that he visited Belarus 3 times and reportedly trained in military camps and underwent militant terrorist training under the guidance of 51-year-old Valery Lunev, a former colonel of Belarusian special forces which they are trying to spin as anti-Belarussian/Russian FSB conspiracy.

This despite the fact that Mr Lunev and his associates are linked with western intelligence against Belarus and coordinating operations against Russia in Chechnya given the fact that Mr Lunev is a convert to Islam and married to a relative of the first Chechen president Dudaev and prominent western intelligence front company Far West Gulf LLC running covert operations against Russia in Chechnya and neighbouring Republics.

“Valery Lunev (cover name, b. 1960, in Kuliab, Tajikistan). Officer of the Soviet General Staff. In the 1980s took part in anti-COCOM activities in the Netherlands. Has Dutch passport. Major-General of Belorussian KGB, in active reserve since 2007. Served in Iraq (1990-1991). Converted to Islam after marrying a relative of President Dudaev . Pan-Turkist, connected to radical branch of the Grey Wolves underground. Fluent in Arabic and Farsi. Executive Director of Far West, LLC .

Mr Lunev himself is openly anti-Lukachenko and supports the CIA/MI6 backed opposition.

Paul Murphy in his book Wolves of Islam: Russia and the Faces of Chechen Terrorism noted in a Janes intelligence Digest article from 11th January 2002:

“Belarus, a former Soviet republic that ended up with a large stockpile of conventional Soviet weapons and is today one of the worlds top arms exporters, Moldovia, and the Ukraine have all shipped arms to Chechnya.
On 11 January 2002, Janes Intelligence Digest reported that Victor Sheyman, the former head of the Belarusian Security Council, coordinated the arms shipments through former members of the Belarussian Almaz antiterrorist squad who had become merceneries in Chechnya. They served as intermediaries for the delivery of these weapons.


Coincidence?

Belarussian authorities suspect that he might be connected to the Mink metro bombing which western intelligence are working overtime to overthrow as an indirect attack on Russia.

Mr Brevik has all the hallmarks of Mohammad Atta with connection to western intelligence, mysterious travels and connections to an individual in Poland that do not fit the media narrative, military camp training, girlfriend (possibly handler?) and a large unaccounted sum of money $700,000.
