Senator: I was called a Nazi and threatened with rape for supporting Palestine

FIANNA FÁIL SENATOR Averil Power said she received a rape threat as a result of her support for a Seanad motion recognising the state of Palestine last year.
Power spoke to TheJournal.ie yesterday about how she had been called a Nazi and anti-Semite for her support of the Palestinian people. She insisted the issue has nothing to do with religion for her, describing it as a “land grab” pure and simple.
Watch Power discuss the threat she received and how she dealt with it:

The leadership question

Elsewhere in the course of her wide-ranging interview with TheJournal.ie yesterday, Power talked about the leadership of Micheál Martin.
Power admitted Leinster House can be a bit of  a ”a men’s locker room” at times, and said ensuring more women are on the ballot paper will require “leadership”.
So, what does she make of Fianna Fáil’s current leader?
Fianna Fáil is hoping to have up to 27 female candidates in the next general election. All parties are required to have at least 30% women on the ballot paper or else face losing half of their exchequer funding.
The party currently has no female TDs and Power has put her name forward for selection in the new constituency Dublin Bay North. She will face stiff competition from former junior minister Sean Haughey (son of Charlie) and Councillor Deirdre Heney.
Power said that quotas are “a last resort” but necessary to increase the level of female representation in the Dáil above the current 16% – the highest level it has ever been.

Tom O’Carroll is still accepted and active on a sexnet chat group of experts in “sexology” although he writes openly as a pedophile. And the scholarly organizers of the Swansea conference at the University were part of his efforts. Below a summary of my intro to him in my book, Stolen Honor, Stolen Innocence, 2013. This academic pedophile lobby has continued and grown, training second generation and third generation supporters as “scholars” for pedophile equality and “rights.” In 1981 I realized they were global.

Tory MP's Private Company in Charge of Election votes and counts

Tory MP Peter Lilley’s company IDOX was given contracts across Scotland by SNP and Labour councils to quietly privatise the entire electoral process and control of postal votes and election counts across Scotland.


The contracts were awarded to ensure private control of all Scottish elections for the three-year period covering the EU election, the general election, the EU referendum and the Scottish Elections which allow IDOX to control, open, count and put forward "postal" ballot papers to be put into ballot boxes right up to the 10 pm deadline.

By May 2013 IDOX boasted they already had control of elections and voter registration and votes for 13 million people across the UK in the privatisation of all elections that most voters in the UK are completely unaware of.

Does this mean it is possible for postal votes to be binned (if private operators don't agree with the vote provided) and replaced using signatures they store electronically and can ballot papers be made up in pe…

Jill Dando tried to expose BBC paedophile ring but 'nobody wanted to know (including exclusive first look at the new documentary)

MURDERED BBC TV presenter Jill Dando raised the issue of a possible paedophile ring in the corporation - but no action was taken.



A former colleague and friend told us that Miss Dando, from Weston-super-Mare, tried to get bosses to investigate what was going on. The source said that the Crimewatch presenter was told that 'big name stars' and BBC staff were involved in abuse. A file was eventually handed to senior management in the mid-1990s, but no action was taken on the matter.
The source, who remains anonymous, said: “She compiled a file of complaints but she was not really an investigative journalist, just a presenter. “She passed the information to someone else and they gave it back. No one wanted to know.” Miss Dando was shot outside her London home in 1999 at the age of 37.
