Why are documents relating to VIP sex crimes being kept secret until 2056?

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the UK today!)

Allegations of sex crimes by leading members of the establishment – including paedophilia – are being kept secret from the public until at least the year 2056.

Here’s an example. Documents relating to allegations against a ‘peer of the realm‘ will not be released until at least the year 2043:

closed records

.

And why has the government decided to keep these documents secret until at least the year 2056:

closed diplomatic service

Could the Diplomatic Service employee Colin Peters mentioned above be the same Diplomatic Service employee Colin Peters who was later jailed for sexually abusing children and is linked to the current Operation Fernbridge police investigation into allegations of child sexual abuse by leading members of the establishment?

Whatever the case. Why the extreme secrecy?

OK to teach creationism “in context”, says Scottish Government

Primate's Progress

Some of us had been wondering whether the replacement of Mike Russell by Angela Constance as Scottish Education Secretary would see any improvement in the Government’s “See no evil” approach to the problem of creationism in schools. We have not had long to wait. The answer is no. On the contrary, things suddenly seem to have got a whole lot worse.

Regular readers will know of the Scottish Secular Society’s Petition to the Scottish Parliament, in which we seek

official guidance to bar the presentation in Scottish publicly funded schools of separate creation and of Young Earth doctrines as viable alternatives to the established science of evolution, common descent, and deep time.

The Government’s response to the Committee, issued December 15, over the signature of Tim Simons, Head of Curriculum Unit, Learning Directorate, states that…

House Vote in Favor of the Keystone XL Pipeline an Act of War

Lakota Voice

November 14, 2014

by Wica Agli

Rosebud, SD – In response to today’s vote in the U.S. House of Representatives to authorize the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, the Rosebud Sioux Tribal President announced that the Rosebud Sioux Tribe (Sicangu Lakota Oyate) recognizes the authorization of this pipeline as an act of war.

The Tribe has done its part to remain peaceful in its dealings with the United States in this matter, in spite of the fact that the Rosebud Sioux Tribe has yet to be properly consulted on the project, which would cross through Tribal land, and the concerns brought to the Department of Interior and to the Department of State have yet to be addressed.

“The House has now signed our death warrants and the death warrants of our children and grandchildren. The Rosebud Sioux Tribe will not allow this pipeline through our lands,” said President Scott of…

Black Poppy Appeal – Lest We Forget…

resistmilitarism.com

black poppy at The Baras

Last night, on the 6th Nov 2014, counter-militarism activists pasted 16,000 black poppies (1) around the city of Glasgow to appeal to the public to consider what Remembrance Sunday means. Each poppy represents one of the conciencous objectors, making up 16,000 war resistors who took a stand against their enlistment during the First World War.

The black poppies, which can currently be seen in clusters along streets, appeared in anticipation for the WW1 centenary Remembrance Day commemoration that will take place this Sunday to provide an alternative message to the remembrance industry which is choked on red glorifying poppies, nationalism and militarism.

The black poppy is a symbol which commemorates all those who have died, and are still dying, due to imperialist war and its legacy. It remembers dead soldiers, dead civilians, dead conscientious objectors. It remembers those who have fallen victim to invasion, occupation, gender-based violence, starvation and…
