‘Newly released footage appears to prove Jeremy Corbyn did not lie about having to join seatless commuters on the floor during a three-hour train journey last year in a scandal known as ‘Traingate.’

The Labour leader was filmed by freelancer Yannis Mendez from the floor of a train, where he chose to sit instead of upgrading to first class, on his way to Newcastle from London last August.

Corbyn discussed the state of Britain’s privatized rail system, adding that the train was “ram-packed” and that “the reality is there are not enough trains.”

After CCTV footage was released by Virgin boss Richard Branson, appearing to show Corbyn and his team walking past empty seats on the train, he was accused of staging the scene to make a political point.’

‘Two former BBC executives, who worked on worked on Doctor Who, were given a £4million loan in taxpayers’ cash to set up a new TV company before paying themselves £1.3m despite making a loss.

Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner started their own company called Bad Wolf with the public cash from the Labour-run Welsh Government.

Tranter, 54, and Gardner, 48, were given a loan of £4m from the Welsh Government to set up a studio in Cardiff for ‘high-end TV and film for the global television market’.

But after Bad Wolf’s first year, the firm’s accounts revealed Tranter was paid £855,417 and Gardner received £519,301.

Over the same period, between July 2015 to December 2016, the organisation reported a loss before tax of £2.8m.’

‘Energy Transfer Partners, the corporation behind the Dakota Access Pipeline, has sued Greenpeace and other environmental groups for “eco-terrorism” over their protests against the controversial pipeline.

According to the Dakota Access Pipeline company, environmental groups launched an “eco-terrorism campaign” against the pipeline, and engaged in “acts of terrorism,” including soliciting donations and interfering with construction, damaging its “critical business and financial relationships,” Reuters reports.

In a 231-page lawsuit filed Tuesday, the group claims the protests and negative publicity for the pipeline cost the company millions of dollars. It is seeking treble damages which could come to $1 billion, the Grand Fork Herald reports, along with further punitive damages. The lawsuit also seeks a court order to prevent the groups from conducting more protests.

The firm representing the Texas-based ETP is Kasowitz Benson Torres & Friedman, whose founding partner, Marc Kasowitz, is President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer. Trump was an ETP shareholder before selling his stake in December 2016.’

‘The airport at Calgary has come under fire after replacing disabled parking places with lucrative “Lexus-only” spaces.

According to CBC Calgary News, the airport received a complaint from a family who found five disabled parking bays marked as premium spaces for owners of Lexus-branded vehicles.

Lexus Canada told the media it was unaware the airport’s marketing campaign would involve the removal of parking spaces for travelers with disabilities.

“Lexus Canada would like to offer our heartfelt apologies to anyone who may have been affected or offended by a recent marketing campaign at the Calgary airport… We have asked the airport to correct the situation as quickly as possible by returning these parking spaces to their intended use,” Michael Bouliane, manager of corporate communications at Lexus wrote.

He said the company was “truly embarrassed by this mistake” and in the future will more carefully scrutinize the details of such types of marketing campaigns “to make sure that it doesn’t happen again.”‘

The shamed former Lloyds boss who led a disastrous takeover of rival HBOS is demanding £500,000 in unpaid bonuses.

Eric Daniels was in charge of the lender from 2003 to 2011, presiding over the £12 billion acquisition of its tainted competitor during the financial crisis.

That decision almost destroyed Lloyds and forced it into a humiliating £20.5 billion bailout.

Daniels, 66, was also in charge at the height of the PPI mis-selling scandal, a disaster which has cost the bank £18.1 billion. He and other executives have already had millions of pounds of bonuses taken away from them because of the debacle.

But now Daniels and former wholesale banking head Truett Tate are reportedly challenging a decision not to pay them part of a bonus due in 2012 – the year after the former chief executive left.

They are said to have filed High Court claims against Lloyds this month, with Daniels reportedly demanding around £500,000.’

‘PayPal banned Jihad Watch and the American Freedom Defense Initiative from receiving online donations using their platform because of the site’s “activities” after being designated as “hate sites” by left-wing groups.

Jihad Watch was reportedly banned from PayPal on Saturday after ProPublica – a George Soros funded investigative group – targeted the site and its director Robert Spencer (not to be confused with white nationalist Richard Spencer) in a hit piece that claimed the site was guilty of “extreme hostility toward Muslims.”

The assault on Jihad Watch began on Friday when Spencer received an email that he described as a “threatening” from ProPublica journalist Lauren Kirchner.

The email informed Spencer that she was including his site among a list of hate sites identified as such by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) – both widely considered to be left-leaning organizations.’

‘Did  you know that Google has been recording you without your knowledge?

The technology giant has effectively turned millions of its users’ smartphones into listening devices that can capture intimate conversations — even when they aren’t in the room.

If you own an Android phone, it’s likely that you’ve used Google’s Assistant, which is similar to Apple’s Siri.

Google says it only turns on and begins recording when you utter the words “OK Google”.

But a Sun investigation has found that the virtual assistant is a little hard of hearing, reports The Sun.

In some cases, just saying “OK” in conversation prompted it to switch on your phone and record around 20 seconds of audio.’

‘Fox43 News has documented the outrageous and inhumane actions Pennsylvania utility companies are permitted to implement by the PA Public Utility Commission (PA PUC) regarding the callous actions forced upon a Dover, York County, Pennsylvania, resident who previously suffered a traumatic brain injury. Even a letter from her physician didn’t forestall the installation of the health-dangerous AMI Smart Meter!

The inhumanness of the PA PUC’s illegal interpretation of SB2200/Act 129, wherein Legislators said they were not making AMI Smart Meters mandatory, is causing terrible adverse health effects for thousands of people from AMI Smart Meters, which operate on microwave energies and pump out dramatic voluminous non-thermal radiation waves causing health problems or even making them electromagnetically hypersensitive (EHS), which medical doctors diagnose as idiopathic environmental intolerance (IEI).’

They Are Building A Technological Prison For Humanity – David Icke

‘Robin Feldman, a professor in pharmaceutical law at University of California, testified in September 2016 before the House of Representatives judiciary subcommittee about the state of the opioid addiction in the United States, saying that even though “open and vigorous competition is the backbone of U.S. markets…we are not seeing that in the market for addiction medicine.”

This is because, according to Feldman, big pharmaceutical companies hold a monopoly over the manufacture and release of major commercial drugs.

Statistics show that the percentage of people in America that perish due to drug overdoses has quadrupled since the late 1990s; drug overdoses are now ranked as the leading cause of death for Americans under 50 years old.’

‘“The only legitimate role of search engines is to provide relevant search results, to facilitate public access to information. The only legitimate role of social media platforms is to facilitate public access to communications. … Content carriers have no legal nor moral authority to be self-appointed censors, nor to be self-proclaimed arbiters of Fact or Truth.”Prince Judge Matthew of Thebes

At the request of the international Judiciary, the Council on Alternative Policy Studies (CAPS), an inter-governmental university think tank, has issued a ground-breaking exposé report proving the shocking reality of full-scale mass censorship of the Internet worldwide, and giving practical solutions for individuals to gain open access to uncensored Internet resources.’
