Mainstream Media?s New Obsession: Labelling Criticism of 15-Minute Cities ?Conspiracy Theories? Mon Mar 27, 2023 12:17 | Rebekah Barnett
Anyone questioning the imposition of 15-minute cities is stupid and dangerous, say the mainstream media, shutting down debate ? the latest extreme agenda where criticism is dismissed as 'conspiracy theories'.

The Casey Review concludes there is ?institutional racism? in the Met. Yet according to news reports from the last few years, almost every major British institution is "institutionally racist", as well as the UK itself.

In a recent piece in the Conversation, a professor of climate change says we have to achieve Net Zero by 2035 to save the planet and can only do that by nationalising everything. Is Net Zero socialism by the back door?

No, Frankie Boyle Hasn?t Been Cancelled Sun Mar 26, 2023 18:00 | Nick Dixon
Cancel culture is definitely real, as we have seen with the recent cancellation of comedian Alfie Brown. Finding out that the BBC is not renewing your show for a seventh series, however, probably doesn't count.

Zelensky was ready for Neutrality But UK refused to allow the Ukrainian leader to negotiate – Pentagon ex-adviser

The UK refused to allow the Ukrainian leader to negotiate, retired Col. Douglas MacGregor alleges
It is already widely known in non MSM circles that Zelensky was ready to make peace back in March but instead was blocked from doing so by the UK on behalf of the USA / NATO. As a result of that decision, many tens of thousands of Ukrainian soldiers have died needlessly for no good reason and Europe's economy plunged into recession. It is also why we are all paying high energy prices.
In a recent interview of retired Colonel Douglas MacGregor he provides more details on what happened and it was reported on by rt.com
Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky was ready in March to meet some of Moscow’s conditions for peace, retired US Army Colonel Douglas MacGregor has claimed in a recent interview. He blamed former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson for preventing a settlement.
As Ukrainian and Russian delegations sat down in Istanbul in March, news surfaced of a potential deal that would have seen Kiev renounce its ambition to join NATO and agree to neutrality, in exchange for Russia’s withdrawal to pre-February battle lines. Days later, Zelensky said he had discovered evidence of war crimes in territory evacuated by Russian forces, and negotiations were called off.
In an interview with military historian Michael Vlahos, published on Saturday, MacGregor claimed that the UK was responsible for the abrupt end of the peace talks.
“We have evidence that towards the end of March, Mr. Zelensky said ‘well, we could live with neutrality,’ and when that word reached Washington and London, people became incensed,” he said.
“Boris Johnson represented Washington’s interests and said ‘absolutely not, we will support you to the bitter end. You must stand your ground and fight for every inch of Ukraine’.”
MacGregor is not the first US official to suggest that Zelensky was ready for peace in March. Fiona Hill, a veteran US diplomat who served as the US National Security Council’s senior director for Europe and Russia in the Trump administration, wrote in September that an “interim settlement” had been agreed in Istanbul.
In May, Ukrainian media linked the collapse of these talks to pressure imposed on Kiev by Johnson. The prime minister visited Kiev on April 9, reportedly without warning, and according to the Ukrainskaya Pravda newspaper, told officials that “even if Ukraine is ready to sign some agreements on guarantees with Putin, they [the West] are not.”
