We have to work together to tackle the hatred and cruelty that you have been dating again

We have to work together to tackle the hatred and cruelty that you have been dating again, to retreat to trench and attract hatred and nervousness between nationalities, so that they do not explode in a devastating confrontation among peoples.

Today, as we celebrate the th anniversary of the treaty of Versailles and the end of the first world war, we wonder what happened to the right of peoples to self-determination, and not to seize the land of others by force? Rejection of these two principles may be one of the reasons why the sense of insecurity in the majority of the peoples of the region is enhanced.

This phrase was quoted by a Lebanese friend who was not able to, like most of the peoples of the mashreq Arab (in Jordan, Palestine, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon) accept that stability for everyone at the expense of the instability of most peoples of the region It is peoples who are already bleeding as a result of these two principles (the right to self-determination, and the non-confiscation of the land of others by force), and they are all not members of the security council, whether permanent or expanded, but they are the peoples of this same region

We note that every deliberate “political” work of the members of the security council brings with it a well-calculated deterioration of all the people of the region, whether they are refugees or citizens. As former us President Woodrow Wilson says “Self-determination is not just a phrase; it is the principle of the duty of application”.

I remember a phone call in 1982 (when Jordan was the 1982th member of the expanded security council) between Mrs. Margaret Thatcher and my late brother, King Hussein, when I heard her talking about the need not to seize the land of others with strength, and the right of peoples In her destiny report. I asked her her day, ” Mrs. Prime Minister, why do the voices of the sheep bells in the falkland resonate higher than the bells of the churches in Jerusalem?”, it was her reply ” you know how it goes “.

People who are at my age must have at least a war in every decade. We have to work together to tackle the hatred and cruelty that you have been dating again, to retreat to trench and attract hatred and nervousness between nationalities, so that they do not explode in a devastating confrontation among peoples. I repeat what I said in 1981: ” it is all right for us to live in sovereign states, to enjoy security away from armed threats, and to live in peace with our neighbors, but that does not grant whatever the right to occupation And change the character of the region “.

If we are back in time one century, when the church bells rang in memory of the signing of the truce that ended the first world war, it is easy to lose hope and belief that there is no light at the end of the tunnel.

However, we can not give up hope now, at least for those who do not vote for them, and for the generations to come. If we do so, we will be denied the possibility to analyse, in a creative way, what cannot be analysed, and perhaps the end of the application of the principle of non-seizure of the land of others, and the principle of the right of peoples to self-determination.

The Democratic Security of all peoples must be spoken, and it may be suggested that independent thinkers from us – or as we are pleased that half of ourselves – are the ones who must light the light inside the tunnel. This leads us to work under “track 2/11”, that is a path that is not pure government, and does not run pure civil diplomacy, only then we can begin to develop vision and insight on how to rid the mashreq of juggernaut Evil: evil is determined by actions and not by motives.


Probably Never in the History of Our Country a Political party was directly Responsible for so Many Deaths

Shocked & Saddened.

As walked towards Trafalgar Square. Come across this in The  Strand, Central London. Next to an  ATM Machine. Photo taken on 16th March  2019. Thousands of homeless people have died, during Tory Government tenancy in Number 10 Downing St.

“Nick  Such a kind and gentle man.  We hope you rest in peace. With love from the whole team  at The Adelphi Theatre”


Probably never in the history of our country a political party was directly responsible for so many deaths of its own people.  (“its own people” is a term that can be argued about!)

“Britain’s aid spending should be more closely aligned to its strategic goals.” Penny Modaunt

Only to be abandoned?

Commonwealth Aid Receiving Nation,s ordinary public rarely see anything on the scale that is boasted about by our politicians in UK government. If at all.

In many cases, aid receiving nations’ public have for many decades rejected aid packages with strings attached.

Adding salt to the wounds of WW2 commonwealth veterans! “Britain’s aid spending should be more closely aligned to its strategic goals.” Says Penny Mordaunt.

Strategic goal aims are not compatible in terms of the needy people buried in  poverty and in Cemeteries across Asia, Middle East and Africa.


In some cases, the only bread winning member of the family was persuaded to join the war leaving no one to take care of the remaining family and kids. Over a million African soldiers had joined  WWll to serve their Queen and mother country.

Politicians need to take a deep look at how the aid is distributed.  In the case of African and Asian soldiers, their right to some type of payment, and compensation needs to be looked at.

The African nations’ Second World War veterans, the abandoned and the forgotten – whatever happened to their dues?

What ever happened to their pensions?

George Medal Awarded for Bravery

There is clear evidence ,in parts of the world, veterans who survived the 2nd world war have died of destitution.

And those that live? They are still fighting war, fighting the extreme poverty with no hope of ever coming out of their tragic situation.


Christian Aid warns Penny Mordaunt against ‘playing politics’ with international aid

International development secretary Penny Mordaunt has been criticised by charities including Christian Aid for suggesting Britain’s commitment to spending 0.7 per cent of gross national income on aid is ‘unsustainable’.

Mordaunt, who is tipped as a prospective candidate in the Conservative Party leadership elections, has said private funding should be part of the target. She has also said Britain’s aid spending should be more closely aligned to its strategic goals.”

Veterans Abroad and Some in UK They are Dying Fast of Poverty

Tories are lining up Penny Mordaunt as their next Party leader.

And the usual vote winning considerations?

2018     7 Months ago.  International development secretary, UK. Penny Mordaunt pledges to support Commonwealth veterans. Approximately 8,500 of these veterans or their widows are today living below the poverty line around the world, such as in India, Pakistan and a number of African countries.

UK aid to protect 7,000 Commonwealth veterans of the British Armed Forces from extreme poverty

Over 7,000 veterans of the Commonwealth will receive two meals a day through UK aid, International Development Secretary announces.

By the time payments, if any at all are made there is good probability few hundred veterans may still be living.



Moving Forward, Very Welcome Step Forward. A better and peaceful world is not only possible but its taking shape right now


Afzal Khan MP

“I was delighted to meet with a delegation from the Sikh and Pakistani community to discuss the development of the Kartarpur Corridor initiative.

The Pakistani government announced that access to the Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur will be opened for Sikh pilgrims, in time for celebrations of the 550th anniversary of the birth of Guru Nanak.

This is a big step for the global Sikh community, and also for Pakistani and Indian relations.

I would like to thank Yasmin Qureshi MP for organising this, as well as fellow parliamentarians for showing their support.

This significant milestone symbolises the cooperation between Pakistan and India and the potential to build peace between the two countries. I am hopeful this progress continues. Confidence building is critical for the South Asia region and this moment of positivity needs to carry on between India and Pakistan for the sake of their citizens “

Birmingham City Council Cabinet Member for Clean Streets, Waste and Recycling Majid Mahmood Resigns

Majid Mahmood

“It is with regret to inform you that I resigned from the post of Cabinet Member for Clean Streets, Waste and Recycling. I have found myself in a difficult position over the last few months with the effective backdoor privatisation of the nurseries, the proposals of the loss of pay to care workers together with the ongoing dispute with UNISON and the current dispute with Unite the Union around the “secret payments” to GMB. I was asked to sign off a report to seek an injunction against UNITE and UNISON using TORY party legislation that will ultimately lead to an attack on a trade union is something that I cannot be a party of.

I have very much enjoyed my time serving the city as the Cabinet Member for Clean Streets, Waste and Recycling. It has been a huge privilege and honour to hold the position establishing a really good working relationship with the workforce in street cleansing, refuse collection and waste enforcement. There are still major issues in the refusal collection and if we’re to build a long term sustainable service for the citizens changes need to be made working in conjunction with the workers.

However given the direction that the cabinet are seeking around the bins dispute, and the home care workers to take this Labour council I find myself having to compromise my socialist values of equality, fairness and justice. This is something I am not prepared to do, and I will as a backbench Labour councillor be in a better place to fight on a platform of socialism, and do my utmost to stop the cabinet making decisions that are against our Labour values.

A huge thank you to the many community groups, citizens, union colleagues that I have got to know during my role. You all do some fantastic work. Keep it up, and I am always here to help those seeking to improve the lives #FortheMany.

I will remain as a committed local councillor, and will do what I do best which is representing my constituents with my colleague Diane Donaldson in the Bromford and Hodge Hill ward. #solidarity #JC4PM

We often complain that our elected politicians/councilors are not doing enough
But when they do are we supporting them enough?
Think its time we show well deserved support where its due!

General Election Now. Thousand poured into Central London Wearing Yellow Vests.

Why Tories Must Go. Worst Post War Government.

General Election Now.  In their history Tories  never  did much for the nation.  They Consistently damaged nations wealth by creating and dramatising the need to rid off it by selling it off cheaply, such as BP and GPO  property owned  by the hard working people of Britain. Many more crown jewels were sold off by Tories, its a case where our nation has been taken for a ride to poverty.


Investment Gone,  £22bn flew away from being  invested in UK.  Job opportunities lost, 204,997 gone , Manufacturing in Danger, Job security gone. Fascists on the march. Far right Extremist numbers going up at an alarming rate.


Too many reasons for Theresa May to go. General Election has become order of the day.

Muslims under attack, Broad Street in Birmingham Petrol Bombed and as usual ignored by MSM.

Homeless numbers up, Nearly 600 homeless people died last year . Our NHS Disappearing, Wards closed, Hospital death waiting on trolleys gone up. Privatisation & Tax dodging on the increase. European parts factories close, Michelin and Schaeffler to close UK plants with 1,400 job gone. These are but just the few Tories failed Brexit mess mentions.


Large numbers of British people present in London protesting against Theresa May and her government’s BREXIT failures. General Election Now turn out in London is a massive statement demanding Tory government to hold elections

Weekend Saw a Huge yellow Vest Protest. General Election Now.

Hats off!  Now that’s commitment.    In very cold and wet weather thousands poured into Central London wearing yellow vests.

Indian leadership would not want to be seen as the massive hurdle to Sikh’s age old wish.  Modi and his fascists would never have wanted this. Still holding back, two of Modi’s prominent ministers have refused to join Pakistan’s PM Imran Khan in the ceremony of laying foundation stone at Kartarpur Corridor on Wednesday 28 November.

Sikh pilgrims from across  border in India, long standing wish to have this corridor opened has finally materialised. No visa will be required by Sikh pilgrims  to Kartarpur, Nankana Sahib and NarowalPakistan.

A 50 million Euro investment aimed at helping to end the scourge of femicide – where women and girls are killed just because of their gender – was announced at United Nations Headquarters on Thursday, thanks to the ‘political courage’ of a group of Latin American countries, said the UN deputy chief.


Amina Mohammed was speaking at a high-level event to launch the Spotlight Initiative in Argentina, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico.


She described the joint UN-European Union initiative as “a bold and comprehensive response to the tragedies that we see across the world every day”, aimed at ending violence against women and girls.


“These five countries have shown the political courage to confront and end femicide – a crime that claims the lives of 12 women a day, in Latin America,” said the Deputy Secretary-General.


“Given the pervasive, universal, and entrenched nature of violence against women and girls, we knew that we would need to combine our individual efforts if we were to succeed,” she added.


Latin America is home to 14 of the 25 countries with the highest rates of femicide in the world and an astonishing 98 per cent of gender-related killings, go unprosecuted.


Ms. Mohammed said that the 50 million Euro investment would help tighten up laws and policy initiatives to curb unchecked violence against women and girls, strengthen institutions and promote gender equality overall.


It will also “provide quality services for survivors, and reparations for victims of violence and their families, producing disaggregated data so we can leave no one behind and empower women’s movements in the five priority countries.”


“Addressing femicide comprehensively from each of these angles is essential to successful and lasting results,” she added.


The UN deputy chief paid tribute to Mariana Lima – killed by her police officer husband in 2010 – and her mother, Irinea Buendía, who challenged the Mexican legal system for six years until her daughter’s murderer was brought to justice, and paid tribute to a survivor of a brutal attack, who was in the meeting at UN Headquarters, Natalia Ponce de León. She thanked her for her courage, “coming here to be with us to remind us that we will not stay silent until we end violence against women.”


“We need to end impunity for perpetrators and ensure that no woman or girl experiences violence either in the home, from a partner, or in any public space including from gangs, traffickers or others,” said Ms. Mohammed.

Tory government should take some leads from The Batman. Taking from the rich and giving it to the ones that have been robbed by the corrupt.

Strangely the old mafia, they can not let go of corrupt tyrannical mindset. PMLN members criticised his brilliant, genuine and a simply speech connecting with people right across Pakistani nation.
