Thank you so much, Mr. A - absolutely stunning. In a bit of a reverie now ... time for a small restorative, I think.

I'm seriously into electronic music the weirder the better, but I always loved the shipping forecast, Sailing Away. I'm sure it would come on late at night when I was feeling pleasantly tired and about to fall asleep and I always thought what the heck is that? I had forgotten all about it so it was wonderful to hear it again. I've now downloaded as a treasure to keep. Happy memories.

Thanks, Aangirfan.

Late 19th, early 20th Century, was the last great period for music (pop aside/if counted) although arguably alongside Jazz. Britain's finest. Vaughan Williams our best. How about Elgar's first... or the many barey known and rarely played. Thinking of Butterworth today, 'Banks of Green Willow'. A generation cut down in mass by the enemy we face and fight, not least through your valiant exposure. Some may wonder what this post is all about. Oldie worldy music for summertime, especially on these islands, sure, but for me it's from a time and people that particularly inspire and stir. It shouldn't be idle nostalgia but a reminder of something authentic that we do well to remember (what we've lost but can and must regain). Hadn't considered or taken note of those you've selected. I appreciate it's a little later than the period I'm on about but thank you, it still carries that day.

This is great. The media is the US says that white rioters are just kids having fun that may have gone a bit too far, but black people rioting are thugs and yobs.

Ever notice how the racist media treats black protesters & white rioters differently?

Brave New Films switches mainstream media narrative of black rioters with footage of white violent rioters. It clearly shows the bias and racism in the media .

Acclaimed director Robert Greenwald (Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price, Outfoxed and Uncovered) takes you inside the lives of soldiers, truck drivers, widows and children who have been changed forever as a result of profiteering in the reconstruction of Iraq. Iraq for Sale uncovers the connections between private corporations making a killing in Iraq and the decision makers who allow them to do so.

The corruption and profiteering with complete disregard for American lives, soldiers who fought for their country is unbelievable. War is big business.

Franz-Josef Strauss - is infamous for his role in the bribery scandal surrounding purchase of the dud "widowmaker" Lockheed Starfighter. Along with his crooked counterpart Bilderberger Prince Bernhart

The F-104G also had a lot of trouble flying in the rain hence the term "a fairweather fighter" and a viable British made alternative Saunders Roe SR177 was dropped. Once again we were shafted by our so called allies.

Saunders Roe SR177 background. Very good video !

I imagine if one examined the finances and career breaks of the UK's F35 decision makers in the UK we would likely find the bung or the lever employed.

There is even an sarcastic album all about it. The musician Robert Calvert died of an unexpected heart attack, he looked fine to me a few days before he died. Amusing if you have the time. Here is a clip of the sales pitch to the German minister Strauss. Album - Captain Lockheed and the Starfighters was released in 1974

The Japanese Air Self-Defense Force wished to buy the Grumman F-11 Super Tiger to replace the F-86 Sabre then in service, but heavy lobbying by Lockheed of the key LDP figures led to the adoption of the F-104 instead.
Former Lockheed lobbyist Ernest Hauser told Senate investigators that West German Minister of Defence Franz Josef Strauss and his party had received at least $10 million for the purchase of 900 F-104G Starfighters in 1961.
In the course of the investigations, it emerged that most of the documents related to the Starfighter purchase had been destroyed in 1962.
The U.S Government had bailed out Lockheed in 1971, guaranteeing repayment of $195 million in bank loans to the company.
October 30: ANA announced its decision to purchase 21 Lockheed L1011 Tristars, which cost approximately $5 million each, even though it had previously announced options to purchase the DC-10.
And early 1976, a sub-committee of the U.S Senate led by Senator Frank Church concluded that members of the Lockheed board had paid members of friendly governments to guarantee contracts for military aircraft.
It was publicly revealed that Lockheed had paid $22 million in bribes to foreign officials in the process of negotiating the sale of aircraft including the F-104 Starfighter, the so-called "Deal of the Century".

February 6: The vice-chairman of Lockheed told the Senate subcommittee that Lockheed had paid approximately $3 million in bribes to the office of Japanese Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka for aid in the matter.

February 13: Lockheed chairman of the board Daniel Haughton and vice chairman and president Carl Kotchian resigned from their posts on February 13, 1976.

March: In a protest at the scandal, actor Mitsuyasu Maeno made a suicide attack on Kodama's Tokyo home by crashing a light aircraft onto it.

July 27: Tanaka was arrested on July 27, 1976 and was released in August on a ¥200 million ($690,000) bond. He was found guilty by a Tokyo court on October 12, 1983 for violations of foreign exchange control laws but not on bribery. He was sentenced to four years in prison, but remained free on appeal until his death of a stroke in 1984.

September: In the final phase of the 1976 Bundestag election, the controversy was re-opened when questions were asked about the whereabouts of the "Lockheed documents" within the Federal Ministry of Defence.
December 19: The scandal also played a part in the formulation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act which President Jimmy Carter signed into law on December 19, 1977, which made it illegal for American persons and entities to bribe foreign government officials.
January: The whereabouts of the documents was again discussed in a committee of inquiry meeting of the Bundestag between January 1978 and May 1979.

June 15: The allegations of bribery were supported by political magazine L'Espresso, and targeted former Cabinet ministers Luigi Gui and Mario Tanassi, the former Prime Minister Mariano Rumor and then-President Giovanni Leone, forcing him to resign his post on June 15, 1978.
December 1: Prince Bernhard always denied the charges, but after his death on December 1, 2004, interviews were published showing that he admitted taking the money. He said: "I have accepted that the word Lockheed will be carved on my tombstone".

I loved Captain Lockheed and the Starfighters, by Bob Calvert and members of Hawkwind and The Pink Fairies.

So, the useless Widowmaker was all about corruption and backhanders, I'm not surprised.

What is/was ANA.I do wish posters would understand that not all of us know what their shorthand references mean.

It's whites who are being demonised by the media, not blacks. Look at Colin Flaherty's videos.
