Taking the piss: The Royal family to have their money doubled to £88 million a year

Buckingham Palace is to undergo a ten-year refit at an estimated cost of £369m to the taxpayer, the palace has confirmed.
The work deemed most critical on the 17th Century building will begin in April next year and the Queen will continue to remain in residence.

Buckingham Palace

ITV reports that The decision to undertake the building works was made after an independent report found that without urgent work there is a "serious risk of fire and water damage".

The Treasury confirmed the funds had been granted for the overhaul with Chief Secretary, David Gauke saying they "will ensure every penny spent achieves the greatest value for money."

The estimated £369m cost of the renovations will be funded by a temporary increase in the Sovereign Grant from 15 percent to 25 percent of Crown Estate net income.

The palace will remain fully operational throughout the building works period.

The historic building - first used as a royal palace by Queen Victoria - has not been redecorated since 1952, the year the Elizabeth II ascended.

Details of the project were announced at Buckingham Palace today by the Master of The Queen's Household Tony Johnstone-Burt who said the ten-year plan "offers the best value for money".

We take the responsibility that comes with receiving these public funds extremely seriously indeed; equally, we are convinced that by making this investment in Buckingham Palace now we can avert a much more costly and potentially catastrophic building failure in the years to come.

A technical survey that was carried out on the building identified that the most urgent work needs to be carried out within the next two years.

The report highlighted the urgent need of replacing electrical wiring, some of which is over 60-years-old and puts the Palace at a higher risk of fire.

Specialists on heritage preservation say the Palace's boilers being over 33-years-old could compromise conditions to preserve the Royal Collection of art.

UK Lord Justice wanted age of consent lowered to the age of 4

Lord Justice Fulford was named last year as an adviser to the QueenHe was a key backer of the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange Police suspect the group of abusing children on an ‘industrial scale’He is revealed as a founder member of campaign to defend PIEAt the time it was calling for the age of consent to be lowered to just fourI clashed with Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) global leaders at the Wales conference in Swansea in 1977. 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.

Jews in Israel call for genocide of Palestinians in a massive rally ignored by the media

The West’s media—under orders to censor any news of Jewish supremacism—has refused to publicise this week’s massive hate rally attended by thousands of Jews in Tel Aviv which called for all Arabs to be killed. The Western media’s blackout is in marked contrast to their blanket coverage of the tiniest example of what it calls “white racism.” The Tel Aviv rally—organized to support an Israeli soldier who murdered a wounded Palestinian by shooting him in the head as the victim lay on his back—was marked by chants and banners calling for mass murder. The rally took place on Tuesday evening, April 19, in Tel Aviv’s Yitzhak Rabin Square, and the many thousands of Jews in the crowd were, according to reports in the Israeli media, baying for blood.
One Jewish reporter, Dan Cohen, tweeted that many in the crowd chanted, “Death to Arabs,” a frequently heard rallying cry at anti-Palestinian demonstrations. Ahmed Tibi, a Palestinian lawmaker in Israel’s parliament, posted an image of a sign displayed …

The elite's use young children's blood to live longer and so do I says Paypal Billionaire

Billionaire PayPal founder Peter Thiel said that he believes transfusions of blood from young people can reverse his ageing process and allow him to live a vastly extended lifespan.

In an interview with’s Jeff Bercovici, Thiel said that the practice — known as parabiosis — is the closest modern science has come to creating an anti-aging panacea.

Thiel — a hedge funder who acted as a delegate for Donald Trump and spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention — is reportedly obsessed with defying death and extending the human lifespan. He has injected funds into startups that are experimenting with ways to forestall the body’s inevitable decline and death.

“I’m looking into parabiosis stuff,” Thiel told Bercovici, “where they [injected] the young blood into older mice and they found that had a massive rejuvenating effect. … I think there are a lot of these things that have been strangely underexplored.”

Parabiosis experiments began in the 1950s with crude exercises in which rats …
