Cameron, Coulson and Murdoch

The Tory commentator Peter Oborne is no friend of Call Me Dave. Try this opening salvo from today’s article in the Torygraph: “The phone hacking affair has displayed the Prime Minister at his worst – a shallow, amoral, conniving careerist, determined to secure high office at any cost.” 

Not bad for starters. Oborne then goes on to give some background to his thinking: “In the summer of 2007, David Cameron was running scared. He was starting to slip in the polls and was fretting that Gordon Brown might call – and win – a snap general election. So Mr Cameron hired as his senior aide a well-known Fleet Street figure, the former News of the World editor Andy Coulson.

Mr Coulson was famous for his journalistic brilliance and cool, clear judgment. However, his reputation was under a cloud. A few months earlier, he had suddenly resigned after his royal correspondent was imprisoned for phone hacking. Mr Cameron accepted Mr Coulson’s assurances that he had done nothing wrong. But this week, a jury at the Old Bailey found Mr Coulson guilty of conspiracy to hack phones – and his former boss is paying the inevitable price for taking him to Downing Street as his director of communications.
The future Prime Minister was repeatedly warned about the consequences of doing so. I know of one friendly columnist who took him aside and gave him a private warning. Ian Katz, the deputy editor of The Guardian, gave a private briefing about Mr Coulson to Mr Cameron’s chief of staff, Ed Llewellyn. In a column in The Observer in April 2010, just before the election, I warned David Cameron that he would be “making an extremely worrying statement about the type of government he plans to lead if he allows Coulson anywhere near Downing Street”.
Essential evidence came from the outstanding Guardian journalist Nick Davies, who has done so much to bring the phone-hacking scandal to light. Using traditional journalistic techniques, he carried out an investigation that resulted in very troubling revelations. It portrayed Andy Coulson’s News of the World as essentially a large, private intelligence service, using some of the same highly intrusive techniques as MI5, not all of them legal. There really was no excuse at all for David Cameron to be unaware of what had been going on.
In yesterday’s Guardian, Mr Davies levelled the very serious additional charge that the Prime Minister misled the Leveson Inquiry about his decision to hire Mr Coulson. He quotes Mr Cameron telling Robert Jay QC under oath: “I was reliant on [Coulson’s] word, but I was also reliant on the fact that the Press Complaints Commission had accepted his word, the select committee had accepted his word, the police had accepted his word, the Crown Prosecution Service had accepted his word.” But as Davies points out, at the stage when Mr Cameron hired Mr Coulson, he had not even been interviewed by the Press Complaints Commission, or by a select committee, let alone by the police.”

So there you have it. By clever use of the english language, Mr Slippery slides out from under. Then he has the brass neck to claim he has been exonerated by Leveson. This wasn’t the same David Cameron who refused to turn over all the emails and text messages between himself and Brooks to the Inquiry is it? Or the same Cameron who was in such a bind when the Millie Dowler story broke he had to do something swift to deflect attention from just how much he had been Prime minister for Murdoch? Mind you he was following in some pretty sleazy footsteps in that none other than the Reverend Blair had been schmoozing News International for years. As had most of his cabinet colleagues. Blunkett even continued to grovel at the feet of the mogul after he had been told how they had hacked deeply personal conversations …… Nowt like a bit of brass to kick your values into’t long grass - as they ought to say in Yorkshire.

Our elite politicians have a shocking reputation for doing the bidding of the rich and powerful. They have danced to the tune of the tiny number of media barons to the detriment of our society. 

The news that the police are looking into a corporate prosecution of the Murdoch empire is a tiny ray of hope. 

Very tiny.

As for ‘shallow, amoral, conniving careerist, determined to secure high office at any cost.’ That could apply to so many at the top of our society whether Tory, Labour or LibDem.

The Fantastic Mr Fox

“Britain's security services may need to be given greater powers of surveillance to monitor extremists from Isis when they return home to Britain from Iraq and Syria, the former defence secretary Liam Fox has said.
A majority of people will accept that an "ideological battle" means that the authorities will need greater powers to intercept the communications of extremists, Fox said.” Guardian online edition 22/6/14
Fox said all this and more on Sunday morning tele where he was being interviewed. At this point, a sentient human being, aware of the fantastic Fox’s recent history with his mate Adam Werrity - the man who accompanied him to over 40 diplomatic meetings and events - despite not being an official of any sort. Odd but true. Following his bizarre behaviour -  and his extremist neo-con views, it is astonishing that this mouthpiece for the arms and security industries is given the time of day. 
Not surprisingly there were several pithy responses to Fox on the Guardian’s online comment section. 
‘Leg Man’ wrote this:
“The best way to take control over a people and control them utterly is to take a little of their freedom at a time, to erode rights by a thousand tiny and almost imperceptible reductions. In this way, the people will not see those rights and freedoms being removed until past the point at which these changes cannot be reversed.”
Adolf Hitler - Mein Kampf

Lifesamirror added this:
"Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, IT IS THE LEADERS of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is TELL THEM THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY."

Goering at the Nuremberg Trials

These boys knew what they were doing. Clearly our political elite have swallowed their approach and are regurgitating it on us. 

The way this fantastical pillock gets onto the media is disturbing. He clearly still has a lot of influence and powerful backers. Maybe the media opt for a quiet life - the benign view — or perhaps they too are up to their necks in it with the neo cons…..?

What is wrong with England?

Hanging on by a minuscule thread, once again the performance of the national team leaves a lot of questions. Despite all of the hype and hoopla about the Premiership being ‘the best league in the world’ it is not doing our national team any favours. Champions Manchester City provided one regular player, goalkeeper Joe Hart, and one squad player, James Milner to the England team. The club also provided several stars to other national teams.

After one poor performance in Euro 2000, the German equivalent of the FA brought in several changes to the Bundesliga, their premier football league. It took ten years to increase the number of German players under 23 years of age, from 5% to 16%. This clearly increases the pool of players qualified to play for Germany. 

Note: that was after one poor performance - not the string of failures that England have produced across so many recent tournaments. 

So what is the difference? A clear principle of what the Germans call 50+1 is the fact that the clubs in the Bundesliga are owned by their fans. Not oligarchs, money-launderers, shysters, fraudsters or even shrewd money grabbers such as the Glazers. Why should any off this rag bag collection of the greedy bother about the performance of the England team?

The FA have been supine to the point of being ridiculously impotent in the face of big money. Our national game is in a parlous state and has declined considerably over many years. Take one example where the FA have been worse than useless: junior football. Even experienced former pro-footballers attempting to run junior sides give up in the face of abuse and hostility from ill-informed parents. Young referees quickly learn that there are better ways to spend their time than being shouted at - and sometimes much worse - by mums and dads with little back up from the local football authorities. The behaviour and abuse heaped on officials in the Premiership is replicated at a local level. That the example is not set at the highest level is a disgrace. Radio and TV commentators need to be regularly reminded that their negative comments do not exist in a vacuum - their bile adds to the general opprobrium suffered by match day officials. Anyone still unconvinced should watch how players treat officials in Rugby Union.

Add poor pitch condition, crap changing facilities and maintenance issues and it is no wonder the amount of people playing football across the country is declining rapidly. The Premiership have cut back on the amount they pay to junior football. Compared to the sums generated the total involved was chickenfeed but without it the decline accelerates. 

We have become a nation of watchers - not doers. Being a football fan means finding the best venue with a big screen and cheap booze. The Dutch find our attitude astonishing. Their national lottery equivalent has helped provide excellent sports facilities in every town and village across the country. People of all ages participate regularly in age-related leagues. Junior football is strictly non-competitive until all the basic skills are engrained into young players. The result is the thrilling style of play which produces such results as the thrashing of the former champions Spain and goals to inspire hordes of youngsters to practice diving headers in the style of Robin Van Persie.

Will losing to Costa Rica bring about a clamour for a public inquiry? Do not hold your breath. Most fans myopically put their clubs first.

Snoopers Charter

“The director general of the Office for Security and Counter-Terrorism, Charles Farr, has explained – in a confusing departure from a previous argument – that when communication involves a foreign-based platform it can be treated not as "internal", needing a warrant to intercept, but as "external". This comprehensive ruling means that each tweet, each update on a Facebook page, and most webmail becomes a legitimate target with no need for a warrant, even where it is between two British citizens. But since every communication – down to the merest text message – has to be examined to see which category it falls into, literally nothing is truly private.
The legal basis for all this is the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (Ripa), hurried through parliament in 2000 with only cursory examination. Like the credit agencies nodding through the poisoned debt packages sold by traders before the 2008 crash, no one fully grasped its implications at the time, and since its passage, the technology landscape has been almost entirely redrawn. In 2000 there was no Facebook, no Twitter and Google had only just moved out of a garage in Menlo Park, California. This is the act that the law professor Conor Gearty has described as an "accomplice to secrecy and official impunity”.(my emphasis)
the Investigatory Powers Tribunal exists only to ensure the law has been followed by all the public bodies that operate under its authority. It will never either admit surveillance has been carried out, which the security services say could drive the subject underground, or deny it, since that risks allowing the subject to operate with impunity. According to the Commons home affairs committee, the Investigatory Powers Tribunal has upheld 0.68% of complaints it has heard. None was against the security services.” Guardian Leader article 19/6/14
The upheld complaints were against a local council using its spying powers to snoop on a family to find out whether they lived where they said they did when they were trying to get a child into a local school. There you have it in a nutshell - give a jobsworth an inch and they will take 25 miles. 
And as for the Investigatory Powers Tribunal - it is a total joke. As is the Intelligence and Security Committee with its chair, the egregious Malcolm Riffkind. 
It is time for the people who employ MPs - us - to tell them exactly where they can shove their Investigatory Powers Tribunal and their Intelligence Committee (surely an oxymoron). 

And it is time to reinforce our privacy as a matter of urgency.

British Values

Following his spat with Mrs May over extremists and how to deal with them Gove demands that schools teach 'British Values'

Would those include:
Rewarding bankers while robbing the poor?
Encouraging corporations and multi-nationals to avail themselves of our lax taxation regime while telling us exactly the opposite. 
Selling off the NHS despite promising 'no top down reorganisation'?
Putting spikes in the ground by posh flats to stop the homeless sleeping  there? 
Letting 'Free Schools' (- what a misnomer - they are not 'Free' - we pay for them out of taxation) - become madrasas? 
Running our democracy like a posh boys club? 
Lying about the reasons to go to war, making up stuff to justify said decision then walking away from any sense of accountability or responsibility as the aftermath degenerates to horrific levels?
Saying “If you have done nothing wrong, you have nothing to fear” while all our emails, texts and phones are monitored by GCHQ and NSA.
Claiming tolerance as a virtue while practicing policies which are intolerant of immigrants, migrants and asylum seekers. 

Tolerance is the wrong word - as noted on the News Quiz, it should be ‘accepting’ or even better ‘embracing.’ Think of the favourite food of the UK - curry!

FIFA and Brazil

Football Is Fixed Again

Consider what was at stake. The World Cup being held in Brazil has not been universally welcomed by its citizens. Revelations about bribery and corruption at the top of FIFA have not helped. For months there have been demonstrations and riots as the poor demanded that the billions spent on new stadia should have gone towards improved health care and better education. Sao Paulo saw protests before the opening ceremony. There were demonstrations in several cities - some brutally dealt with by the police. 

The performance of the national team in the opening game had more riding on it than usual.  A poor result would have made the situation for the government and FIFA worse. Widespread rioting and anti-FIFA demonstrations would have jeopardised the tournament and painted both organisations in a worse light. 

Match fixing is not uncommon in football. Experience from Italy, Russia, South America and several African countries informs us that nothing in world football is to be taken at face value. And what easier way to influence a result than to ensure a match official does his bit for the cause? Nothing like a little bit of insurance….

Croatia upset the plan by scoring first. Whoops. Time for some helpful interventions by the ref:
  1. Neymar could have been sent off prior to scoring the equaliser.
  2. The penalty awarded to put Brazil in front was derided as ‘soft’ by commentators. For ‘soft’ read ‘bent.’
  3. Disallowing a possible equaliser from Croatia. 

Brazil win 3-1 and thousands dance on the streets. The £7billion spent on the tournament is safe for now. 

FIFA and the Brazilian government breathe a sigh of relief. The commentariat concentrate on diving. All is well with the world.

Faith Schools and the bigger picture

As night follows day, the news from Birmingham has a grim inevitability. The corruption - and the word is chosen carefully - of Oldknow School, a non-faith school adopting reported extreme Islamic practices, is a condemnation of ideologue Gove’s drive for academies. Other schools are reported to be in thrall to their governing bodies, who have used their position to impose a strict religious theology into their schools. 

The thrust towards Academies - so ingrained in Gove’s dogma - without sufficient checks and balances - is exposed for what it is. An idea sketched out on the back of a fag packet without any sign of middle or long term consequences. The idea that an official sitting behind a desk in Whitehall will keep an eye on what goes on in the nether regions of the UK is quite simply absurd. The local education authority were well versed in picking up vibes from their heads expressing concerns about the goings on at a neighbouring institution. That they have been marginalised and their influence removed is a shaming and shameful aspect off this sorry affair. 

Why should we pay through our taxes for fundamentalist nutters to corrupt young minds? In case anyone thinks this is an anti-Islamic rant, read on. The existence of Catholic Schools is also an abomination. This is the same organisation who not only turned official blind eyes to priestly paedophiles but also engaged in a systematic cover up. The latest revelations from the septic tank graveyard of nearly 800 children in Tuam, Galway, Ireland simply reinforce that stance.

Why also should we pay for Orthodox Jews to brainwash their young at our expense. And why should we pay for the mumbo-jumbo merchants of the C of E to have free rein over impressionable minds?

On a practical level, the fiasco at Birmingham may eventually end up doing some good. A population overwhelmingly secular should not give succour, cash or support to the lunatic,deluded and the barking, who believe in imaginary friends and oppose rational thought.

John Harris, writing in the Guardian, concluded his article with the bigger picture:
“Ultimately religion is a second order issue here. What's most important may be one of the most toxic legacies of this awful government: the fact that from plummeting morale among teachers, through a mounting shortage of primary school places, to the glaring failings of the free schools programme, and now this latest controversy – we have a state education system in a complete disarray. In a story replete with smokescreens and diversions, no one should forget that.”

Commenter ‘Lochaber’ went further:
“This Tory administration will,within 5 years, have irreparably damaged every institution that they supposedly cherish - the courts, NHS, state education system, police force, royal mail...........
The Libdems unlocked the building and the Tories went to work with their sledgehammers, passing anything of value out of the back window to their city pals.
'Britishness' my arse!”

Another, calling themselves teaandchocolate, said this:
 “I have been away from the UK for 3 years now and reading this is so depressing. Instead of academies, free schools and so many other types of schools, provided by parents and whoever, the actual solid original state system could have done so much more for the children of the UK.
On the continent there are state schools providing international gcse and international baccalaureate and languages and classics, ICT and technology.
No country, to my knowledge, has let their state system be so totally destroyed as the UK has over the last 30 years and so finally in the last 4.

Michael Gove has effectively delivered the last blow to something that could have been made fit for the modern child. Now it is a bloody nightmare.”

Snowden one year on

 Silence of the Cams

"The telescreen received and transmitted simultaneously. Any sound that Winston made above the level of a very low whisper, would be picked up by it; .....
There was no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork. It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time. But at any rate they could plug in your wire whenever they wanted to.”

The extract above is from ‘1984.’ Thanks to Snowden we know the prescient Orwell was spot on and only a few years early. The stupid, the complacent and the compliant, parrot the William Hague line, “If you have done nothing wrong, you have nothing to fear.” Tell that to the people of East Germany who endured the Stasi monitoring their every move. Anyone suspected of dissent was tried in a secret court and sent to a forced labour camp - or shot. Sometimes they did not bother with the trial. 

The bombshell this week that our beloved government want to run a secret trial of two alleged terrorists is quite chilling. The fuse is suddenly burning quicker.

Are you happy that your mobile phone can be accessed by ‘the authorities’ without your knowledge. Were you aware that your mobile can be used as a bug, even when it is turned off? Thanks to Glen Greenwald in ‘No Place To Hide’ “Snowden said the US government has the capability to remotely activate cell phones and convert them into listening devices. …The government has used this tactician criminal investigations for years. In 2006, a federal judge presiding over the criminal prosecution of alleged New York mobsters had ruled that the FBI’s use of so-called roving bugs - turning a person’s own cell phone into a listening device through remote activation - was legal.”

The big tech companies, Google, Apple, Yahoo etc are making noises about how they did not know  the extent to which their services were being raided by NSA. They see the danger in their businesses being seen as government tools. Their gravy train is leaving the station.

Small organisations are springing up dedicated to improving encryption. Whole countries - Brazil, Russia, to name two are looking into setting up their own national net. The EU, so despised by UKIP, is investigating the amount of surveillance taking place and has challenged the US to come clean with what it is up to. In the US the Snowden revelations were explosive. There is massive awareness of the issue and growing anger at the extent of the snooping and the lies told by NSA and governments. Judicial challenges are taking place across the world. Obama stands exposed as a hypocrite and is struggling to control the situation. At least there is new legislation on the way in the States.

Meanwhile back in the UK there is a deafening silence from our political class. 

Remember these? 
  • The parties agree to implement a full programme of measures to reverse the substantial erosion of civil liberties under the Labour Government and roll back state intrusion.
  • Safeguards against the misuse of anti-terrorism legislation.
  • The extension of the scope of the Freedom of Information Act to provide greater transparency
  • Ending of storage of internet and email records without good reason.
These gems come from the Coalition Agreement drawn up in May 2010. My my, haven’t they done well? What a load of BS. Look at the Queen’s Speech for the so-called ‘Zombie Parliament, - not one mention of the need to get a grip of surveillance. 

Organisations such as Liberty are challenging the government in the courts and there are a handful of MPs and others who have raised concerns. To some extent this may all be meaningless if developments in the States and Europe expose what our government does not want us to know. They will be dragged into revealing exactly what GCHQ have been up to….and for how long. 

The question to ask the ‘nothing wrong - nothing to worry about’ numpties is to ask them for their bank code, their email password and their cell phone access code. 

The words in red are trigger words which activate the scanning computers to hone in. If everyone put similar words in all their emails and texts then the buggers would be swamped.

Dear Mr or Ms Snooper,

Are you happy in your work spying on your fellow citizens? Have you seen 'The Lives of Others' about the Stasi in East Germany? Have you thought about becoming a whistleblower and telling the world what you get up to?

The Catholic Church - an Evil Empire

A mass grave found in Nigeria, Bosnia or Syria would result in the news media of the world covering the story. There would be calls for the guilty parties to be held to account.
So why the silence about the mass grave found in a septic tank in Ireland? 
Why ignore yet more evidence of the Catholic Church behaving in a profoundly evil way? Does the most evil organisation currently operating in the world still have sufficient clout to ‘persuade’ news organisations to tread softly? 
Read the following and weep.
“The bodies of 796 children, between the ages of two days and nine years old, have been found in a disused sewage tank in Tuam, County Galway. They died between 1925 and 1961 in a mother and baby home under the care of the Bon Secours nuns.
Locals have known about the grave since 1975, when two little boys, playing, broke apart the concrete slab covering it and discovered a tomb filled with small skeletons. A parish priest said prayers at the site, and it was sealed once more, the number of bodies below unknown, their names forgotten.
The Tuam historian Catherine Corless discovered the extent of the mass grave when she requested records of children's deaths in the home. The registrar in Galway gave her almost 800. Shocked, she checked 100 of these against graveyard burials, and found only one little boy who had been returned to a family plot. The vast majority of the children's remains, it seemed, were in the septic tank…..
..A health board report from 1944 on the Tuam home describes emaciated, potbellied children, mentally unwell mothers and appalling overcrowding. But, as Corless points out, this was no different to other homes in Ireland. They all had the same mentality: that these women and children should be punished.” Emer O’Toole Guardian 4/6/14
What has become clear was how implicated the Irish government were. These homes were operating across Ireland. The Catholic Church was all powerful. There are many, many more mass graves waiting to be uncovered.
“..what is the difference between the wall of lies, denial and secrecy the church constructed to protect its paedophile priests and a concrete slab over the bodies of 796 children neglected to death by nuns? Good people unearth these evil truths, but the church always survives.” ibid.
One reaction on the comment board sums it up:
“Absolutely horrific. And this is the same Catholic church that is always banging on about the importance of children, parenthood and family life? Enabling paedophiles to run amok and throwing the bodies of dead babies into septic tanks.
Shameful. Utterly, utterly shameful.” moretsu

“Do not say Catholic prayers over these dead children. Don't insult those who were in life despised and abused by you. Instead, tell us where the rest of the bodies are.” Emer O’Toole

More sickening revelations.
Any nuns left from that era would be in their 70's and 80's now.
But let's not forget that mere old age is no bar to nazi war criminals being put on trial. I'd love to see some of the Catholic Church being put in the dock for this.” JonAustin

The Catholic Church share a ‘lucky’ trait with the bankers. No matter what they do and how badly they behave, no-one goes to jail. 

It is time for that to change.

The Housing Bubble and ‘Top’ Tories

“Chris Grayling rejects EU commission call to halt housing bubble by building more homes and reforming council tax.” Guardian 4/6/14

Can this be the same Chris Grayling who got us - the taxpayer - to pay for a flat in London when he already owned three which he rented out?

It is. 

As a property developer he must feel the property bubble is very good for his bank balance mustn’t he?


Is it the same Chris Grayling who is another millionaire in a Cabinet full of them? 

It is. 

Is it the same Chris Grayling who is Minister for Justice?

It is. Mmmm.

Would there be any of his colleagues who benefited from second home swapping revealed in the Expenses Scandal?

There would. Most senior people in the Commons used this device to build themselves a nice little earner. At our expense.

Any bad examples?

Try Frances Maude - Minister for Probity (Ha Bloody Ha). He has the brass neck to lecture us about honesty The Telegraph said this about him when they exposed the Expenses scandal: 

“Francis Maude claimed almost £35,000 in two years for mortgage interest payments on a London flat – even though he already owned a house just a few hundred yards away.

The minister for the Cabinet Office and Paymaster general owned the house outright, but in 2006 took out a £345,000 mortgage on the flat no more than a minute’s walk away, which he designated his second home. He then rented out the house and began claiming mortgage interest payments on the flat which is in a grade II-listed building with a gym and 24-hour concierge.”

How do these greedy bastards get away with it?

You tell me.

Fit For F All
The governing body of world football has been run as a private gravy train for many years. Most of the executives voted on to the ruling body regard it as their opportunity to become really wealthy. Whether this is to the detriment of their national organisation or the game at large is of little consequence to these thieves and chancers. 

The revelations in the Sunday Times are nothing new. Andrew Jennings has been mining a rich seam for many years exposing the skullduggery and blatant abuse of power by those at the top of this rotten organisation. Check out his ‘Transparency in Sport’ blog. Anyone with at least two brain cells knows that FIFA is a deeply corrupt organisation with a history of bribery, back-handers and bare-faced thievery going back many years. 

BBC Panorama - with Jennings as the ‘Investigative Reporter’ exposed the deals done with TV rights and the way money was laundered around the world using a ‘bagman’ to take FIFA Executives their rewards. This was screened many years ago. Very little of substance has changed as the latest revelations show. The ‘News’ element of the beeb has done its bit to expose the scams. BBC Sport on the other hand have been craven in their desire not to lose access to these creeps. They should be ashamed - deeply ashamed.

So what is to be done? 

  • The Swiss could do more to clamp down on the blatant illegality happening under their noses. 
  • The football world could walk away from FIFA and set up a rival organisation which is transparent and fair. The World Cup offers an excellent opportunity for decent people to get their heads together and come up with an attractive alternative. Think Kerry Packer. 
  • The TV companies - in concert with the advertisers - could do a lot more to pressure FIFA to clean up its act.
  • Every time one of these corrupt bastards lands at an international airport he should receive in-depth scrutiny including checking every item of baggage. Nail the bagmen who travel round the world rewarding corruption. 
  • As soon as Blatter gets up to speak at the opening ceremony of the World Cup, he should be showered with abuse. Everywhere he and his team of fellow fiddlers go they should be met with hostility.

FIFA = Federation of Idiots, Fraudsters and Arseholes

             Fit Ideally For Arsholes

             Football Is Fiddled Always
