news review with the longest serving member of the Conservative party in Britain, retired army officer, Bristol born, Harry Beckhough, who at 98, is the longest standing member of the Conservative Party in Britain being a member continuously for 85 years. Harry was a code breaker in World War Two, ran and started various clothing businesses and started a prep school which is still going strong in the Vale of York. He is the author of several books including an autobiography Thinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and books about Germany's Fourth Reich as he believes the Nazis continued their evil work after the end of the second world war, abandoning the swastika in public and laundering the money they looted from Europe to create a secret financial and industrial empire. He is a staunch anti EU campaigner as he believes an undemocratic EU promotes this Nazi power today. The weeks news stories are reviewed by him and Martin Summers: Nick Clegg’s speech, five years into his job as LibDem leader; Wikileaks is arguably the most courageous publisher in the Western world today and we hear founder Julian Assange who gave a ‘Christmas Message’ from the balcony of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London this week; the film ‘Unlawful Killing’ about what is officially the murder of Princess Diana since the inquest jury returned the unlawful killing verdict, nevertheless this documentary is still banned here in the UK, it blames several riders of high powered motorcycles and the driver of a white Fiat Uno for the killing, not the Paparazzi as the British press have intimated; a clip of the final Prime Minister’s Questions before the holiday - David Crawsby asking why the City Bankers have not been arrested yet, reminding the house of the Great Train Robbers who were put in jail for decades but stole far less money; a clip of PMQ – Labour leader Ed Miliband talks about the rise in the use of Food Banks, including for the working poor; plus one MP, Ian Lavery, waves a suicide note from a now dead disabled person who had their social security money cut but the Prime Minister denies there have been any cuts to benefits for disabled people in Britain that they are indeed getting more money now.
