A firebreak  is a gap in vegetation or other combustible material that acts as a barrier to slow or stop the progress of a bushfire or wildfire.

The world’s most expensive firebreak was created when the whole of Van Ness Avenue in San Francisco was dynamited to stop the spread of fire resulting from the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.


It’s a dilemma that decision makers in the establishment face.

The VIP paedophile scandal goes right to the top, the very top. If left ‘unmanaged’ everything will be exposed but who to burn in order to  protect them from an inferno that leaves nothing? Too near the top and too powerful and it might become too hot at the very top, too far away and the rot will not be perceived dealt with by the public.

Decisions, decisions.

In The National Interest


‘The National Interest’. It’s an interesting term, isn’t it ?

It is a term that is often misunderstood because the majority of the public have in their minds one definition of The Nation while those that are charged to safeguard the national interest have a subtly distinct understanding of what The Nation is.

In the case of the majority of us The Nation is a voluntary collective of citizens prepared to obey the law as a means to safeguard our mutual self-interest. We, as a society, recognise that there are both internal and external threats to our broadly peaceful way of life and The Nation is a glue that binds us together for our mutual protection. For this mutual protection we willingly relinquish absolute freedom which can only manifest itself in an anarchic state offering none of us security.

However, for those, who by definition are the establishment, charged with safeguarding the ‘National Interest’, The Nation is mistakenly conflated with The State and the establishment’s definition of The State ergo The Nation is ‘Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, her heirs and successors.’ and, by extension, all the mechanisms that sustain the monarchy in that position.

Every Member of Parliament pledges this Oath of Allegiance or Solemn Affirmation before he or she can sit “I…swear by Almighty God that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, her heirs and successors, according to law. So help me God.”

Similar Oaths of Allegiance are pledged by members of the Lords, members of the Civil Service, members of the judiciary, members of the armed forces, the police, and the clergy.

For the record, I think we have a very good Queen and I think that a constitutional monarchy is as good a system of government as any and better than some. For the most part the interests of The State and those of The Nation are one and the same. If they were not then conflict between the two would have brought down The State, as it is now, long ago.

But sometimes the interests of The State and The Nation, as perceived by the majority of people, are not the same and because when these differences do occur they might lead to public disenchantment and in extremis a breakdown in public order, these rare examples must by necessity be kept secret.

Such is the example of establishment child abuse. By no reasonable definition of ‘National Interest’ can a cover-up be condoned. It is an essential tenet of our social contract that the most vulnerable in our society are those that need to be protected the most and children above all others are the most innocent and therefore most in need of this protection.

Only when the interests of The State, and the establishment mechanisms which sustain it, are jeopardised is it possible for such abhorrent and anti-social behaviour be covered-up by those charged with safeguarding the ‘National Interest’.

But let’s be clear, when this happens the power to protect the ‘National Interest’ has been misappropriated and those that do so, far from protecting The State, undermine in the eyes of the public The State and the establishment which sustains it.

This Is What A D-Notice Looks Like.

This is a genuine D-Notice, not complete, which was sent to the press on 07/06/2013 concerning Prism, the  electronic surveillance program.

Just so you know what they look like.

Defence Advisory Notice

There have been a number of articles recently in connection with some of the ways in which the UK Intelligence Services obtain information from foreign sources.

Although none of these recent articles has contravened any of the guidelines contained within the Defence Advisory Notice System, the intelligence services are concerned that further developments of this same theme may begin to jeopardize both national security and possibly UK personnel…

Two Newspaper Executives Claim Child Abuse D-Notices

This is something that needs to be dealt with.

Newspapers must have kept copies of D-Notices. They are written and they are not something lightly thrown away.

Two newspaper executives have told the Observer that their publications were issued with D-notices – warnings not to publish intelligence that might damage national security – when they sought to report on allegations of a powerful group of men engaging in child sex abuse in 1984. One executive said he had been accosted in his office by 15 uniformed and two non-uniformed police over a dossier on Westminster paedophiles passed to him by the former Labour cabinet minister Barbara Castle.

The other said that his newspaper had received a D-notice when a reporter sought to write about a police investigation into Elm Guest House, in southwest London, where a group of high-profile paedophiles was said to have operated and may have killed a child. Now it has emerged that these claims are impossible to verify or discount because the D-notice archives for that period “are not complete”.

Officials running the D-notice system, which works closely with MI5 and MI6 and the Ministry of Defence, said that files “going back beyond 20 years are not complete because files are reviewed and correspondence of a routine nature with no historical significance destroyed”.

We Need Your Help !

The Needleteam are now getting a little angry.

We need your help.

You see the more we cross-reference recommended cottaging sites from with sexual assaults on children the more examples we find.

We’d like you to help us because there are too many for us to look at alone.

Here’s another example;

Oldham Town Square Shopping Centre

  • Crowd:All types. Students, Business Men, Builders, Oldies.
  • Directions:- If you are in either Spindles or Town Square Shopping centre find W H Smiths and facing the entrance is a door to the Car Park and also the toilets. If you park in the Town Square Shopping Centre Car Park, its on the floor just before the Shopping Level. So if you are on the shopping level go through the doors and down the set of stairs, you will see the stairs carry on down or you can go through a set of doors, go through there and the toilets are directly facing you.
  • Hours:It’s open the same times as the shops.
    Best times: Best times are week days from about 3pm onwards, but can be busy around dinner. Weekends all day usually quite busy, but not as busy as weekdays.
  • Cruising Info/ Tips:Go in the cubicle and do the usual stuff to make the guy know why you are there. You can also look under the partition to see if the guy is moving his feet closer to you etc.
    Cruisiest Spots: You can find action in the cubicles usually or at the .
  • Wheelchair Accessible:No
  • Warnings:Be careful of the security guards, you can hear them before they get into the toilets and if you are in the cubicles you will be ok. And usually its never the same security guard twice.

And the consequence ?


Matt Leigh Tyler

A man who subjected a boy to what police described as a “degrading sexual attack” in the toilets of a shopping centre has been jailed.

The 13-year-old boy was assaulted at Spindles Shopping Centre in Oldham, Greater Manchester, on 17 September.

Matt Leigh Tyler, 31, from Chadderton, denied two counts of rape but admitted sexual activity with a child under 15, a plea which the court accepted.

He was jailed for three and a half years at Manchester Crown Court.
