No words are necessary - whatsoever

Thinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy - what an amazing chap.

Harry Beckhough who died in 2015 aged 101, was a colonel in the Intelligence Corps during the Second World War, a code-breaker at Bletchley Park, and later a Colonel in the Secret Intelligent Service.

During his lifetime he enjoyed secret chats with Winston Churchill, studied briefly under the philosopher Heidegger, intercepted personal messages between Hitler and Rommel, hung out with the Beatles in Carnaby Street, and even set up fashion guru Paul Smith with his first shop.

Here he talks about subversives in Britain and America, and the fact that every leader in Britain from Heath onwards were traitors to Britain. And - as a MI6 Colonel - he should know.

The first hour is his fascinating speech, without notes, and the second half, is a question and answer time. If you don't have two hours to spare, I implore you to watch the first half.

His autobiography is available on Amazon UK for £18.94 and has only been produced on paperback. I'm saving up!


Are you thinking of opening a new shop?

Before signing the lease, walk the area; what side of the street do the majority walk on? How busy is it between 9am and 12noon, 1pm to 2pm, and 2pm to 6pm?

Does your business depend on people coming from out of the area? If so, where are the nearest parking areas? An added plus if your shop is near a bus stop!

The weeks before you open, deliver 10,000 leaflets. Offer a very large discount voucher for all who turn up between 5pm and 7pm at the opening party. Preferably  the night before opening the shop. Keep the leaflet simple, The type of shop and the date of the party.

Have music playing in this party so people coming home from work will hear and make a note of your shop. Curiosity may bring them in over the coming weeks. Invite the local Councillors and any other notaries.

Naturally not all will be able to get in, but make sure they all get a voucher when turning up. Have a time limit of three months on the discount voucher. Mention this in the leaflet.

You are now off to a fine start, but it’s up to your service, and the quality and price of your goods, whether you succeed.

Now that the cold Autumn nights are drawing in...

I thought of food! I'm not really into menus on my blog, but when I find an excellent dish...

Not sure where, on the net, I found this menu, but today we made this slow cooked beef stew and it was the best we'd ever tasted.

Although not in the instructions, I added a tablespoon of Schwartz Piri Piri herb and spice blend. But chilli should be added to cover the weakest palate at the table.

We had recently purchased a multi-cooker and made it in that. Using the Slow Cooker instructions which were really only about temperature.

Here it is, enjoy.

Slow cook beef stew


600ml boiled water
1/2 a swede,  into smallish chunks
2 carrots, cut into chunks
300g mushrooms, thickly sliced
400g diced stewing steak
1.5 tbsp olive oil
75g flour
1½ tsp dried parsley
1½ tsp dried thyme
3 beef stock cubes
Black pepper to taste
2 tsps Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp Marmite
1 tbsp of tomato puree
* Cornflour standing by, just in case

Prep:30min  › Cook:5hr  ›  Ready in:5hr30min

Prepare vegetables and put into dishes.

Put oil & beef into a large bowl, coat beef with oil.

Then, in another bowl, add the flour, herbs, pepper & stock cubes. Mix thoroughly. Then add beef to flour mixture (keep the rest of the oil separate, you’ll need this later)  coat oiled beef with flour.

Then put into slow cooker, on a high heat and brown thoroughly, adding the Marmite and Worcester Sauce,  five to ten minutes to seal in the flavour.

Now add the vegetables to the rest of the flour mix in the bowl. Pour boiled water onto vegetables a little at a time and stir to mix in flour.

Then add the vegatables and liquid to the slow cooker. Turn heat to 180C to boil, then turn power down to 100C and leave for five hours.

Taste throughout cooking to check if too thick; then add more water. If too liquid; then thicken with a cornflour and water mixture.

This recipe should have enough salt from the ingredients listed, however if you prefer you may add more towards the end of cooking to add more flavour.

However a warning, this meal, which my wife and I thought was the best beef stew either of us had tasted, left us bloated and unable to move, so unless you have South African style appetites - and my English wife doesn't - the above quantities are really for three people. Or even four!

Common Purpose explained

On the cpexposed website, the following is taken from "Understanding Common Purpose" Follow this link to their extensive website.

Common Purpose is a political charity using Behavioral Modification

Common Purpose (CP) is a Charity, based in Great Britain, which creates ‘Future Leaders’ of society. CP selects individuals and ‘trains’ them to learn how society works, who 'pulls the levers of power' and how CP ‘graduates’ can use this knowledge to lead 'Outside Authority’.

Children, teenagers and adults have their prejudices removed. Graduates are ‘empowered’ to become ‘Leaders’ and work in ‘partnership’ with other CP graduates. CP claims to have trained some 30,000 adult graduates in UK and changed the lives of some 80,000 people, including schoolchildren and young people.

But evidence shows that Common Purpose is rather more than a Charity ‘empowering' people and communities’. In fact, CP is an elitest pro-EU political organisation helping to replace democracy in UK, and worldwide, with CP chosen ‘elite’ leaders.

 In truth, their hidden networks and political objectives are undermining and destroying our democratic society and are threatening ‘free will’ in adults, teenagers and children. Their work is funded by public money and big business, including international banks.

It is important for researchers on this site to realise that the majority of Common Purpose 'graduates' are victims, who have little if any understanding of the wider role of Common Purpose within UK society, nor of its connections to higher government and the European Union.

Drawn into CP training by a flattering invitation, or selected by their company or organisation, this recruitment is normally carried out by a previously trained CP person - now recruiting for the cause. Candidates are screened and selected (or rejected) by CP Advisory Board members in their area.

Both candidates and 'trained graduates' will have no real understanding of Common Purpose's wider role to help achieve a political and social paradigm shift in the UK. The real objective, would appear to be to replace our traditional UK democracy with the new regime of the EU superstate.

On 17 November 2013 Brian Gerrish wrote 

"Many people are now aware of the British political charity Common Purpose and its work to create a network of common purpose across politics, public and private sectors, and throughout society. Many people now understand the sinister role CP played in creating the furore to drive the Leveson Inquiry into the press, using their own Media Standards Trust and the Hacked Off Campaign. Their ultimate goal has been to assist the British State to take control of the Mainstream Press using a Royal Charter with the power to impose draconian penalties should the press fail to live up to State imposed guidelines.

We should remember that CP is a secretive and duplicitous organisation that has already been caught breaking the Data Protection laws by collecting data on individuals lawfully asking questions about CP by means of the Freedom of Information Act. CP is terrified of the public gaze and discovery of its real  work to undermine democracy and impose a quasi secret network of state control by means of a network of CP graduates in positions of power and influence. The plan is for a communitarian dictatorship and a conrolled press and media is essential to this.

Mr Gerrish went on to state:

We can be confident that the charity CP was designed to be the Trojan Horse in British Society with the primary objective of getting the first CP 'future leaders' into place, from where they could open many doors to many more of their own. But alongside infiltration by the political charity CP comes the wider socio political agenda of common purpose; an agenda which is being promoted by a host of different organisations and initiatives.

These include Diversity Courses, Community Empowerment, Leadership, Visioning, Community Activism, Social Entrepreneurs and Disupters - in fact there is now a vast web of these 'vehicles' which are primarily working to promote the change agenda to destabilise our historic organised society.

The turbulence of deliberately created change allows the new intended socio political agenda to be established more softly than if there was a sudden onslaught of the new politics in a quiet orderly and stable society. Alongside the common purpose 'vehicles' I have just mentioned comes another 'change agent' web using networks of Neuro Linguistic Programming NLP. Via a myriad of different consultancies boasting everything from self empowerment to powerful management change in global corporations, NLP practitioners are creating a mass of 'reframed individuals' with boosted belief in their own ability as change agents and leaders, and a low-empathy view of those simple individuals who are left to rely on the 'inferior' mind that God gave them.

Another article states:

Common Purpose infects all mainstream political parties including the Conservatives.

The diagram below shows the influence of Common Purpose to the top of the Conservative party with key figures such as David Cameron, Francis Maude and Chris Patten. The diagram also shows the incestuous CP links to Sir Bob Kerslake, Head of the Civil Service and the BBC. Francis Maude MP conspired with others to prevent the public seeing details of the contracts by which the Cabinet Office Leadership Committee, attended by Sir David Bell Common Purpose Trustee, awarded contracts to his own charity CP to train the Top 200 Civil Servants.

Despite legitimate Freedom of Information requests and Maude's boasts of Conservative transparency, the Cabinet Office is fighting to withhold the information. Why? Because details will clearly show insider dealing and that Common Purpose is key to the Conservative party machinery. The Tories are now the Emperor with no clothes. Corruption, abuse of Freedom of Information rules and dirty deals with Common Purpose hidden from the public.

We suggest that more people should investigae just how Common Purpose is an organisation dedicated to change the British way of life into something else. The something else will be up to you to work out. We have done our bit in starting you off here. Visit and be prepared to be horrified if you are a normal, well-ajusted human being. If you aren't, you are probably part of Common Purpose.

How Firefox saves me hours of time

I used to use Chrome and, to be fair, liked it enormously. But I can't have an opening page as I do in Firefox.

There are many reasons to choose Firefox. Security, it is opensource so you can check the source code for any trap doors is one very good reason.

However, my main reason is you can devise your own starting page, unlike the others.

To make an opening page requires a limited knowledge of HTML code. This is not as daunting as it seems as you can use the WW3 web site at which has a huge range of tutorials on web programming--but you only need to use the first one on their list “Learn HTML”.

My opening page has over 60 links in three columns grouped under various headings with descriptions, which open in another page so it is always there on the left. Every time I fire up my browser, Firefox's home page shows me the sixty most used sites of mine so I can get to where I want with one click!

Over the last year it must have saved me hours of my time, not to mention the wear and tear of my fingers as I punch my hapless keyboard into smithereens.

A letter explains why Ampers' Rants has been quiet this month.

Dear Followers,

(and according to Google Analytics there have been nearly 600,000 since I started this blog.)

First of all, my apologies for being a little tardy this month but I have been busy altering my new website (built for me) for those interested in all the Brexit Good News, and all the Bad News, coming from our dishonest and crooked government.

There are also photographs of every MP in Theresa May's first cabinet, a list of people who tried to browbeat us to remain, and a list of relevant links, and our action page.

I will now return to Ampers' Rants with a slightly less garish look to it. But I do like colour although the new political website is neat, smart, minimalistic and in black and white.

Should any of you take a look, I'd appreciate it if you fill in the form on the Action page and let me know what you think of it.

Streaming within comprehensives

One Answer could be to Streaming in  Comprehensives.

A Stream for Grammar status
B Stream for Comprehensive status
Ć Stream for remedial status
D Stream for Metalwork and woodwork.

My Afrikaans boarding school adopted this system and it was very effective, so before you tear it to pieces, it has been done before.

But I would take it further.

A bonus of £500 to be paid for every B Stream pupils qualifies to move up at the end of year exams, to the A Stream. And a £750 bonus for C Stream pupils who gravitate to the B Stream.

Some pupils just don't do well in their academic studies but remember, we used to be a nation of artisans, and people very able with their hands can earn far more than the average. And, before you scream "sexist" I have known a few excellent women Carpenters and plumbers...

The unions will kick up a storm, and many of the public will deplore paying teachers more, but remember, our country depends on our brightest and best becoming the brightest and the best!

Why I pay £79.00 (or £6.58 a month) for Amazon Prime

I buy between 3 and 5 items a month from Amazon. From a new TV down to a pack of elastic bands. I buy my South African brandy from them as well. Bearing in mind the average delivery charge is over £5, and Prime delivery is free, that saves me over £79 a year if I were only buying four items every three months.

In addition, I get next day delivery service by courier, and that even included an order for a box of elastic bands!

Another good thing is, Amazon have a lot of third party sellers who, more times than not, honour Amazon's Prime by waiving postage on their products – an additional bonus.

If I elected for two to three days delivery, I get a £1 credit which I can use to buy a Kindle Book of download music from Amazon, or watch paying movies on Prime TV, which is free to members of Amazon Prime. I always make sure I get delayed delivery for at least 79 items a year to ensure my Prime membership is virtually free!

Because I buy so much on Amazon, I am treated well. For example I had a £200 plus camera, a Panasonic Lumix TZ60 which broke after nine months. I emailed Amazon asking who to contact to get it repaired. Remember this was nine months later… they replied instantly and said, send it back at our expense and we will credit you with the full expense. I bought the next one up, the TX80 and was very pleased.

Using Amazon Prime, there are hundreds of both movies and television shows and a prolific amount of music to stream free of charge. I've gone a bit berserk on classical, Opera, Country and 60s Rock. All totally free to listen to or watch at any time.

However you still need to shop around. I just bought the new Dyson hair-dryer, over £400 on Amazon, but £299 just about everywhere else. Possibly an error but it pays to do your homework!

Finally, living in North London I can get many of my purchases delivered free within one hour of placing my order between 8am and midnight.

All this for less than 22p a day or less than a cheap Americano coffee a week?

Saudi Arabia and Egypt redefining their relationships with Israel

Does the Times Want Middle East Peace
Jonathan S. Tobin / 29th August, 2016

Something very odd has been happening in the Middle East and, as Sunday’s editorial in the New York Times illustrates, it has a lot of liberals seriously depressed. What’s bothering them? It turns out their collective noses are out of joint about progress toward Middle East peace and the fact that the Palestinian campaign that seeks to avoid direct talks and isolate Israel is failing.

If that wasn’t bad enough, a series of diplomatic breakthroughs are happening on the watch of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the man that the Times and the so-called “peace camp” has been busy slandering as an opponent of peace.

After several decades of unremitting hostility, some of the fiercest opponents of Israel are starting to view the Jewish state very differently. Covert ties with Saudi Arabia are now becoming more open. Egypt, whose cold peace with Israel remained frozen in open hostility since Anwar Sadat’s assassination, has a government that is no longer shy about treating Israel as an ally if not a friend. Jerusalem’s relations with much of the Third World, especially African nations, are also warming up.

Those who care about thawing tensions between Jews and Arabs should be applauding all of this. That’s especially true of those voices that spend so much time deploring Israel’s isolation and the idea that it is an armed camp that is locked in perpetual combat with the entire Muslim and Arab world.

But the Times and others on the left are lukewarm about these positive developments for their own reasons.

The first is that Israel and its Arab neighbors have been drawn together in large part through their mutual antipathy for Obama administration policies, and most specifically about the Iran nuclear deal.

The Times has been one of the principal cheerleaders of the pact, which its advocates incorrectly claim has ended the nuclear threat to Israel and the Arab states. But those nations that are targeted most directly by Iran—Israel and Saudi Arabia—understand that U.S. appeasement of Iran advances the latter’s drive for regional hegemony as well as merely postponing the moment when it will achieve nuclear capability.

The coming together of other Middle East nations in reaction to this travesty is evidence that those most at risk consider Obama’s false promises and his desire for a general U.S. retreat from the region a clear and present danger to the region.

Just as important is the Palestinian dismay about the willingness of many in the Arab world to embrace Israel as an ally. The irony is that both the Saudis and Egyptians hope to use their new ties with Israel to jump-start peace talks and Israel has signaled its willingness to try again.

But that is exactly the opposite of what the Palestinian Authority wants. PA leader Mahmoud Abbas is appalled about the idea of being pushed into negotiations with Israel again because it will force him to either refuse peace offers (as he did in 2008) or to blow up the talks (as he did in 2014) to avoid being cornered again. The PA prefers to stick to its strategy of refusing negotiations while asking the United Nations to recognize their independence without first requiring them to make peace with Israel.

New talks with Israel mean that strategy, which allows the PA to keep refusing to recognize the legitimacy of a Jewish state no matter where its borders are drawn, would be thwarted.

Ever since 1967, any hope of Arab reconciliation with Israel has been frustrated by Palestinian rejectionism. But that is a luxury that Cairo and Riyadh can no longer afford because of the nuclear deal and the rise of Islamist terror groups such as Hamas in Gaza,

Iran’s Hezbollah auxiliaries in Lebanon as well as ISIS. Egypt rightly sees Hamas and ISIS as direct threats that must be faced. Moreover, Israel’s fears that a withdrawal from the West Bank would lead to a Hamas takeover there are viewed with more understanding in Cairo than they are at the Times.

The Foreign invasion.

Naturally, the false asylum seekers who enter the UK are illegal and should be deported, whether criminals or not. There are rules about entering a country illegally by slipping through procedures or using false documents.

Also, we must be alarmed by ISIS threat of saying they are slipping in thousands of killers into the EU disguised as Asylum seekers. These are of many religions but most have the same barbaric religion which is to maim, rape and kill non-believers.

But I welcome the Eastern Europeans into our country providing they are here for life and want to settle down, hold jobs, buy homes and have families. I have met many of these people and they are all very friendly unless pushed.

They are over here with their children but as the children grow up and marry, I hope they will fall in love with English people. After two dastardly world wars, the English race has lost huge swaths of their bravest people. The race has weakened. Just look at the huge amount who, too terrified to stand on their own two feet and face a brave new world, opted to vote to remain in a suffocating, undemocratic, European Union.


This five minute video tells a story succinctly...

Very much about those Afrikaners who travelled to countries north to help the indiginous people but get very little thanks.

You may not understand the language but you will fully understand the story.


Da-Idi Guillaume - My musiek! Hope you enjoy!

I met Guillaume in 2006 at a 10,000 crowd off Afrikaners from Britain and all over Europe at a mammoth Afrikaans festival in Wembley over a weekend in 2006 where I was the official photographer.

He hasn't seemed to have aged very much but his music has improved 100%. I hope my viewers will enjoy it as much as I do.


Try not to eat or drink poison, most of you do so every day.

Interesting article in the Daily Express on 30th August on how a slice of lemon in your drink, part f the article reads:

Whether it be an ice cold glass of your favourite fizzy drink or a slimline gin and tonic, a slice of lemon is always a refreshing addition.

But did you know the microbes found on your citrus wedge have the potential to cause infectious diseases?

This comes after it was revealed THIS everyday habit is "as dirty as licking your toilet".

A study published in the Journal of Environmental Health in 2007, involved researchers swabbing lemon slices that were on their drinks at 21 different restaurants.

They found almost 70 per cent of the samples produced some sort of microbial growth, including 25 different microbial species.

The researchers concluded: “The microbes found on the lemon samples in our investigation all have the potential to cause infectious diseases at various body sites, although the likelihood was not determined in this study
But it doesn't stop there, in the Express on the 11th August

So it may come as a surprise to learn that refilling your water bottle without washing it has been branded as dirtier than licking the toilet.

New research from treadmillreviews has found that refilled water bottles are covered in germs.

Researchers lab-tested reusable water bottles after each had been used by an athlete for a week.

The bottle with the highest number of bacteria – over 900,000 colony forming units per square cm on average – had more bacteria than the average toilet seat.
Related articles

The research, shared with, found the average person’s water bottle had 313,499 CFU per square cm.

The germ-ridden bottles are caused by a lack of washing mixed with sweat and germs encountered on a daily basis.

Even more stomach-churning was the news researchers found 60 per cent of the germs they discovered on the water bottles were able to make people sick.

However there are ways to make water bottles less germ-covered.
 Which should be enough to examine everything we do where eating utencils, cups and plates, water bottles are concerned.

Some useful hints from these articles include:

1. Firstly, don’t use a slide-top bottle as it was found to be the worst for germs, with 933,340 CFU per square cm.

2. Squeeze top and screw-top bottles came in second, with around 160,000 CFU per square cm.

3. But the cleanest bottles were straw-tops, which had just 25,400 CFU per square cm.

4. Drinking from a stainless steel bottle is healthier than from a plastic bottle, researchers discovered.

The war between the UK and the US which almost happened.

War very nearly broke out in the early thirties between America and Britain. America's plans were to dominate Canada and the Caribbean initially. Then Australia and New Zealand.

The only reason the Americans finally dropped the idea was the power of the British navy which, incidentally, our last half dozen governments have destroyed.

The film below lasts 45 minutes and is absolutely riveting. When I was sent a link I just couldn't put it down. Make sure you have the time before watching it as it is impossible to put down.

My readers from Britain, Canada, and the ANZAC countries should watch and thank their lucky stars it never happened as the death toll could have been as bad as the first world war.

The story is also in Wikipedia.

Saudi Born Atheist Rana Ahmad: Family Would Have Killed Me If I Hadn’t Fled

So, Moslem women say wearing the Hijab is their idea? This Saudi girl does not agree. Tell me, UK Feminists, whose side are you on, enlightened girls or dominated women?

She became an atheist after studying the books Moslems are forbidden to study.

Books that western girls read at school every day.

American Software Security, late seventies style!

Borlannd Sidekick was a Personal Information Manager [PIM} which I used on my Commodore PET back in 1977-1979.

We were discussing sidekick in a pub in Bayswater and complaining because Borland wasn't allowed to send the version with the ability to make the data secure with security outside the USA.

A rather large Russian came over to our table - remember, this was in the cold war, and we were naturally a little nervous!

But he was friendly and said if we came back tomorrow he would give us a copy of Sidekick with the security on it.

We returned the next night and sure enough, he came over and gave us the floppy disks. I asked how he managed to get them when we couldn't.

"Man in embassy in Washington crossed the road to computer shop and got program and copied to all embassies in world".

Made us question American government intelligence.
