The NHS says informed consent requires us to be given all the information about what a treatment involves. When Dr Zoë Harcombe tried to get this info on the Covid vaccine, however, she received nothing but obfuscation.

Did Mattel really need to make Scrabble more 'inclusive'? Isn?t the beauty of the game is that it?s a merciless test of verbal intelligence? Fifteen year-old Jack Watson thinks it's fine as it is.

Given the massive amount of woke bureaucracy imposed on NHS organisations by the Department of Health, it's hardly surprising that the hiring of DEI staff has been one of the fastest growing areas in our failing NHS.

"CO2 is not a bad gas," says Prof Valentina Zharkova, "the world actually needs more." The climate is instead driven by the Sun, argues the Astrophysicist. "Expect the next 30 years to get colder."

Bribes paid out

OSSL claim that their company was a supplier to Shell in respect of the Corrib Gas Project. They allege that acting on Shell’s instructions, OSSL has distributed bribes on Shell’s behalf to parties connected with the project, including the Irish police force (the Garda) who have been the subject of serious accusations of wrong doing by environmental activists protesting against the project. The main accusation being that the Garda has acted as an offshoot of Shell security.

SELF-EXPLANATORY EMAIL FROM JOHN DONOVAN TO LINDA SZYMANSKI, CHIEF ETHICS & COMPLIANCE OFFICER, ROYAL DUTCH SHELL PLC

From: John Donovan
Subject: OSSL Ireland
Date: 28 March 2013 13:42:04 GMT
To: Linda.Szymanski@shell.com
Cc: michiel.brandjes@shell.com

Dear Ms Szymanski

I am writing to you in your capacity as Chief Ethics & Compliance Officer of Royal Dutch Dutch Plc.

In case you are not already aware, I want to formally bring to your attention allegations made by an Irish company OSSL against Shell EP Ireland.

OSSL claim that their company was a supplier to Shell in respect of the Corrib Gas Project.

They allege that acting on Shell’s instructions, OSSL has distributed bribes on Shell’s behalf to parties connected with the project, including the Irish police force (the Garda) who have been the subject of serious accusations of wrong doing by environmental activists protesting against the project. The main accusation being that the Garda has acted as an offshoot of Shell security.

OSSL allege that invoices have been falsified on Shell’s instructions to cover-up what has been going on.

This week, OSSL has provided what they claim is an authentic invoice to Shell dated 24 August 2012 amounting to over €35,000 for alcohol allegedly given as a corrupt payment to the Garda. Senior Garda officers are named on the invoice.

When looking at the header of the invoice it is strange to see that this includes a Hotmail address, does it not?

Well not really, right? It is a real small village and a really small company.

What would be interesting to confirm the validity of that invoice is to check it against shell's books if those amount appear there, then yeah right that would tend to confirm it ish.

If this is really the case that gardai took bribes, should it not be brought to the attention of their internal affair services?
