The EU and Censorship

Google US Brazil
Google is starting to accept requests from Europeans who want to erase unflattering information from the results produced by the world’s dominant search engine.
The demands can be submitted on a Web page that Google opened late Thursday in response to a landmark ruling issued two weeks ago by Europe’s highest court.
The decision gives Europeans the means to polish their online reputations by petitioning Google and other search engines to remove potentially damaging links to newspaper articles and other websites with embarrassing information about their past activities.
Google’s compliance thrusts the company into the prickly position of having to balance privacy concerns and “the right to be forgotten” against the principles of free expression and “the right to know.”
It will also create a divide between how Google generates search results about some people in Europe and the rest of the world. For now at least, Google will only scrub personal information spanning a 32-nation swath in Europe. That means Googling the same person in the United States and dozens of other countries could look much different than it does from Europe.

Although the court ruling only applied to 28 countries in the European Union, Google is extending the “right to be forgotten” to four other countries — Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. More than 500 million people live in the area affected by Google’s potential purge of personal information from its European search results.

The Budapest Memorandums

On December 5, 1994 the leaders of Ukraine, Russia, Britain and the United States signed a memorandum to remove nuclear weapons in Ukraine. They all signed six agreements for Ukraine, the agreements are:

  1. The Russian Federation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the United States of America reaffirm their commitment to Ukraine, in accordance with the principles of the Final Act of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe, to respect the independence and sovereignty and the existing borders of Ukraine;
  2. The Russian Federation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the United States of America reaffirm their obligation to refrain from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of Ukraine, and that none of their weapons will ever be used against Ukraine except in self-defence or otherwise in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations;
  3. The Russian Federation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the United States of America reaffirm their commitment to Ukraine, in accordance with the principles of the Final Act of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe, to refrain from economic coercion designed to subordinate to their own interest the exercise by Ukraine of the rights inherent in its sovereignty and thus to secure advantages of any kind;
  4. The Russian Federation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the United States of America reaffirm their commitment to seek immediate United Nations Security Council action to provide assistance to Ukraine, as a non-nuclear-weapon State party to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, if Ukraine should become a victim of [6] an act of aggression or an object of a threat of aggression in which nuclear weapons are used;
  5. The Russian Federation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the United States of America reaffirm, in the case of Ukraine, their commitment not to use nuclear weapons against any non-nuclearweapon State party to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, except in the case of an attack on themselves, their territories or dependent territories, their armed forces, or their allies, by such a State in association or alliance with a nuclear-weapon State;
  6. Ukraine, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the United States of America will consult in the event a situation arises that raises a question concerning these commitments.

Exclusive: Oswald Mosley Defends Hitler’s Actions.

Oswald Mosley

The Needle can exclusively reveal that Oswald Mosely, leader of the British Union of Kips, has defended Adolf Hitler’s recent military action in the Sudetenland.

The Prince of Wales had recently said that Adolf Hitler was behaving like Gengis Khan but Mr Mosley disagreed saying “There are times when it might be better for the Prince of Wales not to get involved in things like this,”

Mr Mosley went on to say how much he admired the German dictator for standing up for his country’s interests and that Herr Hitler was only looking after German speaking minorities in countries within it’s own sphere of economic interests. He pointed out that the German speaking majority in the Sudetenland of Czechoslovakia wanted the protection of the German Army.

The British Prime Minister, Mr Chamberlain waving a piece of paper above his head, agreed with Mr Mosley and suggested that rather than preparing ourselves for the worst we should all put our money into dodgy off shore schemes and not pay any tax at all like Mr Barlow lead singer of the successful Vaudeville act Take This.

Renegade backbench MP, Mr Churchill was approached to comment on the controversy but was only heard to mutter under his breath “Oh Shit, not again, when will they ever learn.”

In other news, Hollywood film star Charlie Chaplin has been in court today for speeding. He told the court that he needed to get back home quickly as he had a ‘hot date’ with a 13 year old girl. The learned judge sternly told Mr Chaplin to be more careful when driving in the future and sentenced him to perform at the Royal Variety show later in the year.

In Sport, The Arsenal of London beat the North to win the FA Cup. The North were very plucky and took an early lead but ultimately London were dominant in every piece of media coverage.

War Criminal

If we can not be seen to deal with those that are democratically elected by us, and who lie to us, and who commit crimes against humanity in our name (war crimes). Then how can we ever hope to tell others how to behave ?

If elective power gives immunity from prosecution, then when we vote , we do so to give criminals free reign.

I want to know the truth #Chilcot NOW!
