Londoners Wake Up To Devastation That Storm Wasn't Bigger

Londoners Wake Up To Devastation That Storm Wasn't Bigger

Commented Oct 29, 2013 at 12:19:24 in UK Comedy

“So this is a very strange story. Are you telling people to ignore their weather warning system? Are you belittling your weather stations? And for what purpose?
----------------------------------------------
Falling trees and other debris covering railway tracks caused travel misery for thousands of commuters, with trains and London Underground services suspended.

Gusts of 99 miles per hour (160 kph) were reported on the Isle of Wight in southern England, while gusts up to 80 mph hit the U.K. mainland.

UK Power Networks officials said up to 270,000 homes were without power. Flood alerts were issued for many parts of southern England and emergency officials said hundreds of trees were knocked down by gusts.

Huge waves prompted the major English port of Dover to close, cutting off ferry services to France.

A nuclear power station in Kent, southern England, automatically shut its two reactors after storm debris reduced its incoming power supply.

And 15 people have been killed so far from this storm.

“About women's safety?

By making poor women have to travel 100's of miles by bus or car after an abortion.

No, this is about forcing the poor to stay poor.

Forcing the poor to have plenty of children to fight the rich man's wars.

Forcing the poor to keep unwanted or unaffordable children while the rich send their wives, mistresses and daughters to comfortable clinics- just as they did before Roe v. Wade.

This is a flat-out attack on poor women.”

“Not only that, but this bill closes down 37 women's clinics, preventing about 200,000 low income women from having access to accessible and affordable birth control.

All this will do is create MORE unwanted pregnancies and INCREASE the demand for abortions. I'm told many Texas women close to the border go to Mexico for abortions, which may or many not be safe.”

yellowbusdriver on Jun 25, 2013 at 20:41:23

“Then there's the really poor women who can't afford a bus-ticket who will resort to cheap back-alley abortions we had 50 years ago. Once this black market springs back up, and it will if they pass this, we'll have a new crime statistic to track.”

“That LA News crew drove from the gas station where the video was taken and made several turns over 5 minutes time before encountering the blazing car.

Presumably 'if' that were Hastings car that ran the red light he would have had to take the same route- drive a few blocks, turn, go a few blocks, turn, go a few more blocks, turn- CRASH.

That video HEADLINE makes it appear as if blowing the red light and crashing were one event right after the other, on the same street.”

“Uhhh huh, noticed that. Also, fire dept. was there  fast (4 min.), & that  crew  happened to be there.  First time I saw the video, within hours of the crash, the car was going from right to left thru the light, and the crew made one left turn. I watched it over n over, so...pretty sure...but can't find that one now. I'm sure it's all a coincidence, right?”

“"I don't want to be one of those conspiracy people." you say.

When I was younger, 'conspiracy' investigators exposed deeply hidden 'conspiracies' like the Gulf of Tonkin incident and Cointelpro.

The corporate owned major media in recent years has changed the terminology through language manipulation, and apparently it has worked- considering your sentence and the meaning behind it. They have convinced you that 'conspiracy people' are crazy or ignorant - something you would not want to be.

This would block you from looking deeper into events for fear of being labeled, correct?

But look at the source of the labeling, the ones now wanting to fry the guy who exposed the very thing 'conspiracy people' have been warning us about for 10 years.”

“For some reason those of us in the US are being blocked from viewing the videos on this flood. They say "Video unavailable due to your location"

The censored videos are:

WATCH: Alberta Premier Says It's A 'Sad Day' For Devastated Town

WATCH: Prime Minister Stephen Harper speaks about the floods

Amazing that video feeds are being censored for US viewers. This is the 4th time this has happened over the past few weeks. Most of them about destructive weather events.

If anyone can post these to Youtube or LiveLeak and pop up a link it would be appreciated.
