How? My point was that there are many many deserving people of this award whose actions and work are not linked to their broader agenda as a political or religious activist. Your comment seems to suggest that unless you are political or religious, you can't believe in peace. ?
I was simply saying that there are many people who deserve it who don't serve a government or a God,

It should not be given to anyone of a political or religious ethos, unless their acts of peace and unity are separate from their job and creed.

I had the honour of attending the presentation in 2004, to Kenyan activist, Wangari Maathai. At the time she was a very controversial winner. Her work related mainly to what she had done for African women in poverty. She had set up a tree planting initiative where upon impoverished women, who were reliant on their husbands (and treated like house slaves and baby makers) could rent a plot of land for little more than a few dollars a year, and grow saplings that were then sold on to logging companies who were bound by law to replace the trees they cut down. It gave these women a personal income and meant they were no longer reliant on their men folk and gave them a self determination and a worth to society that they had never had. The whole thing was a huge success but Wangari spent two years in a Nairobi prison, beaten and tortured for having dared to break the rules of Kenyan society that make women the property of their men.

I will never forget her face when she was applauded by Presidents, Prime Ministers and royalty, (and her proud kids) NPP should be about people like her, and not just a PR stunt for the Vatican or The Whitehouse.

Let us not forget that The Catholic Church is responsible for more deaths than Hitler and Stalin combined. Maybe the new Pope is a new broom to sweep way many of their crimes, but those crimes still exist and right now they are involved in many child abuse scandals, regardless of their past evils. If Nobel gives this accolade to the new Pope, they will lose all credibility.

Nobel should always go to someone who has just tried their best for others, and not on behalf of their employers.

I've been watching the new edition THF for a while, just to be sure it is him. The grammar and spelling seems to have improved. However,...welcome back Model T. I am still not completely convinced, but I will extend the benefit of the doubt and wish you hearty greeting. Do I take it, you are back in the land of the free and the home of the brave?

My favourite film of all time, and as British as it gets, is Withnail & I. Richard E Grant, Paul McGann, and Richard Griffiths as the camp and predatory Uncle Monty.

QUOTE (intrepidfox @ 28.Mar.2013, 07:34 PM) *
A few days ago i saw an advert for a new Sherlock Holmes series. Watson is a girl and they are in New York. How can they destroy a classic. The same goes for Hawaii five o, Willy Wonker, etc.
If you look at the TV, it´s cooking, building, reality programmes and i´m sure that in my small collection of dvd´s i could do better.

Is the film/TV world so stagnant with their ideas?

I think the Sherlock series, with Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock, is superb. I think really good and timeless story telling can transpose really well. From a film company perspective, it's often about updating the backdrop to relate to a new and younger audience. Here is an example for you; The Terminator, starring Arnie Schwarzenegger . Whether you like Arnie or not, its a great story. A robot assassin from the future is sent back to the past to kill the woman who will one day give birth to the man who will eventually destroy the robots and their machine empire. The twist being, that the man sent back in time to protect her from the Terminator, (and the best friend of her son in the future) ends up being the father. It's a seminal sci fi movie, and despite the dated special effects, its still a great film. Any idea when the story was written?...1919. It was written by horror writer HP Lovecraft, and originally a short story called The Soldier.

The original story is very Edwardian and full of those naive references of the period it was written, but the narrative is exactly the same. James Cameron just up dated the setting to the early 80's. I think there are lots of great stories that do lend themselves to being brought into a modern setting.

However, I agree that revamping stuff like Hawaii Five O is just cynical. Starskey and Hutch, Charlie's Angels, The Italian Job; it's all about playing safe and re-hashing tried and tested successful films for a new audience. I do think that Charlie and the Chocolate Factory works. I think the difference between films like that and revamping TV shows or previous films, is that whether its the 1973 Gene Wilder version, or the 2005, Jonny Depp version, they are both films based on a great book, as opposed to just re-working a previous film.

Correct. OP has denied murder and has yet to be tried. Therefore he is technically an innocent man. Bail is based on whether someone is likely to run away, or pose a danger to the public in the period before the case comes to court.`As the judge pointed out, he is so well known and with metal legs, his chances of disappearing are practically nil, and with no criminal record, no grounds for thinking he would commit a further crime on bail.

This is ridiculous on the part of the education authorities. Its is not really a racist comment. It is making a small innocuous joke on a name. Had the original email come from someone with the name Zlatan, would it be considered racist if the lecturer had written 'Anneli, can you help Zlatan? He's probably just arrived from training with PSG'

I've just read todays proceedings and it gets even more unbelievable. Reeva`Steenkamps over night bag and personal stuff was by the bed. Once again, this suggests that she hadn't simply turned up unannounced at 3.am and somehow been mistaken for an intruder. Pistorius says he woke up and went to the open French windows of the bedroom, that open on to a balcony, in order to bring in an electric fan that was outside on the balcony. He stated that he had been sleeping with the windows open.
He then stated that he heard a noise coming from the en-suite bathroom and headed in there with a gun. Having noticed a bathroom window open and the toilet door closed, he says he thought someone had climbed in through the window and was hiding in the toilet, so opened fire.

The floor plan of his home clearly shows that the bathroom/toilet are en-suite and, apart from the second story window, the bathroom is only accessible from the bedroom. Now, being that he was fully aware of his girlfriends presence in the house, and that she had not just dropped by at 3.am to surprise him, who the heck did he expect to be in his en-suite bathroom?

It just does not add up that Oskar Pistorius did not, for once moment, consider that the person in the toilet was likely to be the woman whom he had spent the evening with, and who had latterly climbed out of his bed.
It is summer in S/A right now, and the fact that he says he was sleeping with the French windows open, and went outside to bring in an electric fan, would suggest it was a warn night. Whether he had opened the bathroom window and forgotten, or she had opened it when she went in there, it just does not add up that he would not have called out to check it was not his girlfriend in the toilet. If you see the crime scene photos the toilet door is like those in most public toilets. It has a 10 / 12 cm gap at the bottom. It is just a flat board, not some thick, heavy duty fitting. Not difficult to see under, or communicate with someone through it

I think a telling issue is that, even though this was 3.am and her personal belongings and over night bag were next to her side of Pistorius's bed, Reeva Steenkamp was dressed when she was shot. Nor did the bullet wounds suggest she had been using the toilet when she was shot. However the post mortem showed her bladder was empty, so had not long since used the loo. How many burglars break in to your house and then flush the toilet?

The fact that she had bothered to get dressed at 3.am, suggests she was intending to go somewhere. Oskar Pistorius's first phone call was to the building security, endorsing what I said earlier; that a millionaire athlete in`S/A is likely to have security alarm system straight out of Mission Impossible. It is a gated estate with security patrols, and anyone who is so security concious as to keep fire arms by their bed, is not going to have forgotten to install an alarm system, or have motion senser lights.

I just don't buy it. Even with all that security, if you genuinely thought you might have an intruder on the premises, and your girlfriend was somewhere about the place, you would at least be calling out to them before you started loosing off rounds. I just don't think that someone who has achieved what he has achieved, in the face of the obstacles life gave him, is quite that dumb.

Any of you been burgled whilst asleep in your own house ? whilst your other half & son in a cot next to you.
I have & i can assure you I wont be asking questions first if I catch the F#"#%er having another attempt ( & besides this being Sweden & knowing the piss poor sentencing I can live with the punishment that might be administered to me by the courts, if such an event were to ever play out here)

Any of your been burgled in South Africa? until your in such a situation you can all sit there as arm charm Caesars.
In the heat of the moment you can often act before thinking, fear adrenaline is pumping.

We can all say Oscar should have,could have acted differently. The simple fact is Pretoria & Joburg can be very scary places & living in fear or partly is a daily life for many, let alone a guy who sleeps with no legs.

Evidence thus far is a complete cock up from a dodgy investigator ...

I think you are totally missing the point, and leading the conversation into exactly the kind of waters you are complaining about in the media reporting.

Of course, if you heard strange noises in your house, and your partner and young child are there, of course you are very likely to act to protect and defend them before anything else. However, surely def-con one, would be to make sure it wasn't one of your loved ones making the noise before you start discharging a fire arm into the dark.

That was my whole point. If you know your child and partner are in the house with you, then your reaction would be to make sure they were safe before you start taking evasive action against any assumed invader.

It is also relevant to point out that, although S/A can certainly be a dangerous place, Pitorius didn't live in bloody Seweto. He lives in a a wealthy and gated estate with security guards.

Look at it another way; If you got up in the night to investigate a noise, and your partner (who was laid next to you in bed an hour earlier) was no where to be seen, wouldn't your first thought be to make sure it wasn't your partner who was making the noise.?
Your opening words make it clear that your first thoughts would be for the protection of your loved ones, so don't you think that the first action in doing that would be to call out and make sure that you were not about to accidentally shoot them dead?. It's simple. Reeva! Is that you in the bathroom?'

Of course there is always a lot of conjecture and hypotheticals in cases like this, prior to any formal trial. Stripping it down to its bare bones, the crux of the case revolves around whether Pistorius purposely shot his girlfriend or mistakenly shot her, thinking she was an intruder.

However, one glaring issue keeps jumping out at me. Now; I am sure everyone has woken up in the night when their partner has got up to use the loo, or make a drink, got up early for work, etc. That is to say, you begin to stir, and notice the empty space in the bed net to you.

Surely, it is normal human nature to assume that any activity, noise, flushing, foot steps, is likely to be your partner using the bathroom, or getting a glass of water, before you assume it is an intruder (?) It seems clear that he was well aware she was in the house. That is to say, she hadn't just returned unexpectedly from a late night out. It appears this incident happened at 3 or 4 am, and prior to this, they had been asleep in bed together. So why would you assume that any noise or moving around was likely to be anyone other than your partner? Secondly, being that your partner was in the house, surely you would make every effort to make sure it was not them in the bathroom, before you started firing a gun through the door.
Ocams Razor. The most obvious is the most likely.

It has come to light in recent days, from her own family, no less, that this woman had attempted suicide on two previous occasions in the past 12 months. She was clearly very unstable prior to this prank call.

Charlton Heston ( may he rot in Hell) was the figurehead of the US gun lobby and is infamous for his pro gun speech saying "From my cold dead hands" as the only way that his gun cold be taken from him.

Today a follower of his policy killed at least 26 people including 18 children under 10 at a school in Connecticut.

BBC Report

How long are the gun nuts in the USA going to continue in this insane policy, and how many more innocent young people going to have cold dead hands, thanks to idiots in the USA who keep on demanding the second amendment needs upholding with the right to bear arms?

Walmart sells guns to all comers, are they going to want to sell guns in ASDA next?

With you all the way Rick. I too hope Charlton Heston is reviled like Jimmy Savile. The problem now is that it is so hard to revoke the laws on gun ownership.. Because those who want them are now armed to the teeth. Just hearing on UK TV, that people are saying teachers should be armed... WTF?

C'mon Obama, do the right thing.

How can you not say bad things about the people you are fighting?

I don't get it...who is winning and why are our people dying?

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/12/12/propo...k-up-for-women/

Being that this article appears on the most right wing news network in the world, one can assume that this editorial has cherry picked snippets that fit in to their view point.

Soldiers are not allowed to have a point of view. It is a corner stone of a successful army. The minute that your troops begin asking themselves questions about what they are doing, why they are doing it, and the rights and wrongs involved, then you cease to have a cohesive army.The rank and file troops are not there to have an opionion about who they are fighting. They are just there to do the job they are told to do.

Being Fox, they have selected a view point that suits them, as opposed to being balanced. These comments in the hand book do not say that a soldier cannot hold an opinion of their own. They say that, whatever your views and opinions may be, don't go making them apparent to the enemy. Fox have chosen to illustrate this by commenting that soliders are not allowed to make comment about the treatment of women or the Talibans supposed views on child abuse.The broader and truer reality, as with any military training, is that troops are drilled to hold no opinion on anything. If you see some doe eyed little kid in the street, looking lost, you don't think aaaw, poor little lost kid, I should be a nice man and help them get home. You think, are they wired up and going to blow,me up, the second I am close enough. Being emotive about your enemy is key to winning a battle and having a cohesive and focused army.

It doesnt just include all the things we may deplore about an enemy, it includes the things we might grow to like about them. There will be plenty of servicemen who have questioned what they are doing and felt empathy for their enemy in some way. There will be those who also commit needless acts of violence because they are driven by hate.

At the end of the day, if you are told to go out and kill the enemy, you do it because you are ordered to. You don't do it because they treat woment badley and you don't consider that you might be about to orpahan a family of young children. Soldiers are drilled to follow orders and not to consider the rights and wrongs of their enemy.

I think several issues have become confused here.The woman who killed herself took a call and put it though to the ward where The Duchess of Cambridge was.She did not divulge personal patient information, she simply directed the call to the ward. The second nurse was the one who was duped into giving out info. Now, regardless of whether this was a pair of prank DJ's or the Duchess of Cambridge's best friend in the world, SHE SHOULD NOT have given out that information, regardless of who was one the other end of the phone.

On TV this morning an ex royal protection officer was interviewed. He pointed out that both these medical staff had broken the protocols that they are trained to observe. As he made clear, whether it was the Queen of England or a family friend, all calls to a member of the royal family in hospital, are directed to the royal protection officer on duty, or the equerry.

Now consider this; had that call been a genuine call from one of the Duchess's close friends, with no salacious or prank aspect involved, those nurses would still have got a colossal bollocking from their superiors because they didn't follow the procedures and protocols that they should have done. Who and what the call was, is a different issue all together.

This woman and her colleague probably got a severe carpeting from the hospital management and they would have got that even if it had been a genuine call.

I think the whole thing is ridiculous. Of course, the fact that some poor woman is dead, is tragic, but let's put it in to context. This woman played a minor part in a harmless prank. She wasn't duped into blowing up a building full of kids or letting a maniac with a machette into a school. If she honestly felt her part in this was so great she ended her life, she clearly had mental health issues above and beyond this prank.

Secondly, why is everyone having a go at the DJ's? Lets just rewind for a second. Candid Camera, Jeremy Beadle, Noel Edmunds, Phonejacker, Dom Jolly, Punk'd. All popular TV shows that are based around winding people up and conning them into thinking a situation is something other than it is.

Has anyone heard the phone call? The biggest joke is that anyone fell for it. The DJ's are in hysterics that their terrible posh English accents manage to fool anyone. At the end of the day, it was a harmless prank call and in no way malicious. Anyone who remembers Jeremy Beadle's wind ups will surely remember people in tears and thinking they were being arrested or their house had burned down. And Oh how everyone would laugh when Beadle popped out of a nearby bush wearing a false beard.

At worst, this poor woman might have had the right to feel a bit silly for a couple of days, but killing herself is a slight over reaction, don't you think.

Nothing specific, but, unlike Trow, I do some homework. His place belonged to his partner. Her family have sold it after she passed away. He had to move from there to sell it. We all picked that up. If, as he says, he is under Sapo juristiction, he would be bending our ear now. (but actually he would not because they would not allow him to punch off like he does) It is in the rules.

My info is that he is in a home in Taby. I wil get details so we can send him cards.

Mine will be delivered by a suicide bomber...

Ony joking.

Also checked for I Hunter in Sussex,and got this reply:

Yes, that is the number, and it was a small hotel for many years. It still appears on Google as such. Its a regency town house built in 1811 but is now 5 apartments.

|Trowbridge,

You really do ask for it.

MR I Hunter
42 Russell Square
Brighton
UK
BN1 2EF

I decided to post that on the forum, as opposed to sending a PM, so that it has witness and that you can't claim otherwise. The fact that you now have my name and address is now public record. Unlike you Trow, I think ahead.

The Nine, comes from a book called The Only Planet of Choice.

Case closed unless you want to make a judicial fight about it by telling me who you are, and where you live in the UK, so that I can start proceedings against you for defaming me - what the British courts are entertaining now.

However, you saw fit to accuse me of having posted it prior to myself or Jim spotting the Trow-ism grammatical error that led all to know you posted it. (An error that was then reposted in a number of your previous posts to conclusively show it was you)

QUOTE

A remark that once again underlines your lack of judgement and understanding. First of all it is not a lie in any way, shape or form. It is an ACCUSATION; ergo, I have accused you of being the author of that post. Should you prove otherwise you would have disproved my ACCUSATION. However, at no point (and certainly not in law) could it be considered a lie. A lie is when you knowingly state the untrue. I have not done that. I have stated what I believe to be true. ergo, It cannot be construed as a lie.

At this moment in time, I 100% think you posted that post. The evidence for that is that the post contained a recurring grammatical error common only to you in many other posts, and that it once again lead the reader to a further post by you. The second point being a recurring theme on The Local over the years.

I would suggest that before you begin making threats of litigation laugh.gif you consider the evidence. Secondly, you had already made the accusation that I was behind it. However, being that the EVIDENCE strongly points to you being the author, that would mean you made an accusation against me in the full knowledge that it wasn't true. (i.e) You lied.

Trowbridge, if you want to spend your money on court action against me, you are more than free to do that and I will happily send you a PM with my address and details. However, you won't take any action because you know that I can strike you straight out of the ball park.

No, you never do when you paint yourself into a corner. You wrote they anon post and everyone can see you did. Peoples syntax and word usage are as individual as your hand writing and it came from you, like what I know it did. laugh.gif

QUOTE (Trowbridge H. Ford @ 11.Oct.2012, 08:40 AM) *
What an incredible waste of time by jamtjim, the guy who gets paid for doing such.

He goes to the greatest lengths to prove that I deliberately tried to cover my tracks in posting the message from CM's outage thread, done by The Nine, when I just couldn't make sense of what I had written in haste. I didn't link the thread for fear one would have trouble finding it.

The Nine's message does read thus: "People might be interested to read in this blog what outline the real reasons for the outrage."

I thought it was such a misuse of the word, what, that it must be "that".

End of the lesson - Jamtjim right for once about something I did being wrong, but for the wrong reason - what was done in haste, and corrected by mistake.

No conspiracy here, just more lunacy from the leading one on the site.

Of course, still waiting for anything the slightest bit relevant to the two conspiracy murders that I have been posting about.

P. e. I am logged in at Craig Murray's site as "Trowbridge H. Ford", as I always do everywhere I post, so I could not, and would not have posted the one from "Anonymous". Just more implied lies about my using socks?

Trowbridge, is there no limit to your delusion? As Jim quite rightly points out, do you think I am likely to post a link in support of your made ramblings? My some what sarcastic remark on the local, about reposting on Craig Murray's blog, clearly went right over your tin foil hat.

As with the numerous sites you have posted on over the years, it all begins and ends the same way. As with myself and others on the local, and also recently with Veterans News, people do seem to initially give you some credence. This isn't based on any agreement with your insight or assertions on the subjects being discussed, but more on the fact that you paint yourself as some learned retired academic with a background in U.S counter intelligence. For that reason there is a propensity for people to consider that maybe you know more about the background of a subject than they might do. For that reason they are prepared to hear you out and digest your theories.

However, as I have noticed on many sites, before too long other posters begin to see though the smoke and mirrors and realise you are just a loon. As on the Local, as soon as posters begin to question you to explain yourself in a bit more depth, you further devalue any iota of credibility by chicaning around the questions being asked, trying to introduce dis tractive tangents, and finally throwing insults. Before too long you are all washed up.

As Jim showed, you purposely manipulated Craig Murray's explanation of the website failure, in order to suggest it was caused by something it wasn't. My point about reposting was in relation to that. (i.e) Showing the posters on C/M's blog, just what you do on other sites. Twist the truth, cast aspersions, and insult peoples integrity, just to try and make things fit in to your warped deluded theory.

Had I even bothered to post on C.M's site it would have been related to that. It would have been there to just how busted you are on other sites and what a devious and malicious troll you are. It certainly would not have been a post alluding to endorse your bullshit. Once again, it 's a testimony to your delusion that you think I would do that.

Furthermore, as was pointed out, that anonymous post was undoubtedly placed by you. As Jim pointed out, not only did it contain a school boy grammatical error; it's exactly the same error you constantly make on the Local. It was also typical of you to be posting links to your own words.

So not only are you jumping to random conclusions in relation to who posted it, YOU KNOW who posted it and you are once again busy being devious in order stir up trouble.

As I have noted before, your Veterans biog states you were an analyst in Counter Intelligence and that you live under a protection programme in Sweden. The web site people on that page did not just invent that. You led them to believe it was true and it is just another example of you trying to garner credibility for your words by lying about your own life.

As with your false academic citations in the AC Dicey book, you excuse it as being the idea of an over zealous publisher. Bullshit. Those credentials are printed there because you gave them to the publisher. Publishers are very careful about that kind of thing because, should it be uncovered, then it devalues, not only the credibility of the book (and there fore its sales) but also their brand and company. Publishers do not go around inventing false academic credentials for their authors because it can affect their indemnity, should they be accused of a falsehood. They listed those academic credential because you told them they were true. Their only fault was not to check them sufficiently.

As is clear on Veterans Today, you have a track record of lying and falsifying aspects of your life to fake your own credibility.
