Perkin Warbeck Angela Merkel

1499; The Pretender to the throne, Flemish impostor Perkin Warbeck, was hanged for reportedly attempting to escape from the Tower of London.
He had invaded England in 1497, claiming to be Richard of Shrewsbury, Duke of York, the younger son of King Edward IV.
Perky only spat out the confession to be an impostor under the duress of torture.
Part of the war of want between the Yorkies (the north) and the Tudors down south...
I want this; I want that; I want everthing the plebs have between lands end and john 'o' groats GOSH

Torture today; is banned by the geneva convention and the ban on torture supposed to be strictly observed by the signatories of the later UN convention.
Remember rendition - the abduction of citizens and flying them to complicit (paid) nation states to torture.
Us and the US of A were never ever judged to be guilty of the practice.
At time of war; the truth is the first thing out the window.
The northern power house is the explicit example of the denied economic split bwteen the north and south of england - don't mention the SNP
How grim can Grimbsy get GOSH

1993; English artist Rachel Whiteread won both the £20,000 Turner Prize award for best British modern artist and the £40,000 K Foundation art award for the worst artist of the year.
She was the first woman to win Turner prize. and 2001 she became the third artist to provide a sculpture for the empty fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square, an inverted 11 ton resin cast of the plinth itself.
The arts eh!
One - if not the - of the best pieces of 'art' I ever saw...
A piece of hard board in a glass case of emulsion - on pressing a button, it dipped itself into the paint and came back out.
One could actually watch paint dry...
One mans art; is another mans far end of flatulence, he grumbled with a ghastly grimace GOSH

2016; Thomas Mair was found guilty of the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox .
He was sentenced to life imprisonment with a whole life (no parole) order.
Jo Cox was pro EU and immigration - mair was racist and keep britain white.
In this time of 'democracy' death and destruction is never far away.
Keep out of sight! - what shade of grey/gray GOSH


GREECE
Will the German political dilemma/deadlock affect the Greek loans... My Euros say it will. The debt to Germany will become more of a political decision - the present state of international politics will cost the money men(sch) more to lobby.
Rumour has it that Spain wants Gibralter resolved before trade talks can begin.
