Manchester Police Officer Tells Theresa May to Her Face in 2015 That Her Budget Cuts RISK NATIONAL SECURITY, LIMIT TERROR DETECTION, and Pleads With Her to Reconsider Cuts:
Link to 1 minute video of a request by a Manchester Police Officer spoken directly to Theresa May at a policing conference when she was Home Secretary in 2015. Previously awarded a prize for his outstanding policing by May personally, he explains that policing, which he points out is crucial in preventing terrorism, has collapsed due to her cuts, and that he had to resign because he was unable to do the job he loved job properly. He warns of a dire threat to national security if she doesn’t seriously reconsider. In the BBC report linked further down she jaw-droppingly responds by brushing it off as ‘crying wolf’. Resignation Material! Walk now Theresa May!
Watch and Read May Mockingly Dismiss These Claims by The Police as “Crying Wolf” – reported here in a BBC report. Jaw-dropping Disdain!
We now know that the bomber was reported several times to the overstretched Police and was banned from his mosque for being too extremist: how could anyone possibly stay on as PM after that!?! She Cannot. Walk Now Theresa May!

Saudi Arabia: “an ISIS that’s made it”
Theresa May is insistent on UK arms-traders continuing to profiteer at unprecedented levels by selling British arms to Saudi Arabia, by far its biggest client. This is despite the fact that:
A) It is the source of the Wahabbism ideology that drives ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Boko Haram and other terrorist groups, often painted as ‘moderate’ when serving the regime-change goals of US-UK, and is widely acknowledged as providing them with huge amounts of arms and money.
B) Children are starving to death and being blown to pieces in Yemen where British cluster bombs and other British weapons using British warplanes flown by Saudis with British training have been bombing the country mercilessly with and causing a humanitarian catastrophe since March 2015.

The British establishment is putting our lives at risk: Our state’s key ally is a major public threat
by Mark Curtis
The country is in shock after the worst terrorist attack in 12 years. The deranged extremist who detonated the bomb bears sole responsibility for the outrage and is not a soldier – for Islam or whoever – but a murderer. The Manchester suicide bombing is an act of barbarism inflicted on entirely innocent people.
This wave of terrorism driven by Islamic State, which has claimed responsibility for the attack, derives from a complex infrastructure of forces, working over time. But it springs ultimately from the ideology promoted by the ruling family in Saudi Arabia, Wahhabism, who were at least until recently funding and backing IS: they have done so to support their goal of overthrowing Assad in Syria and championing Sunni Islam in the face of rivalry with Iran. These are Britain’s allies. Whitehall has a deep, long-standing special relationship with the extremist Saudis: it is arming them, backing them, apologising for them, and supporting their regional policies. At the same time, the Saudis have been helping to create the monster that now threatens the British public. So, too, have the policies of the British government.
This is terrible, in the true sense of the term: the British establishment is putting our lives at risk in its obsessive obsequiousness in backing the Saudi state. We have to recognise that we are caught between two extremisms – that of IS and that of our own state’s priorities.
The British elite is perfectly aware of the insidious role that Saudi Arabia plays in fomenting terrorism. In October 2014, General Jonathan Shaw, a former Assistant Chief of the Defence Staff, told the Telegraph that Saudi Arabia and Qatar were primarily responsible for the rise of the extremist Islam that inspires IS terrorists. He said:
“This is a time bomb that, under the guise of education, Wahhabi Salafism is igniting under the world really. And it is funded by Saudi and Qatari money and that must stop.”
He noted that UK/US bombing of IS would not “stop the support of people in Qatar and Saudi Arabia for this kind of activity” because:
“It’s not addressing the fundamental problem of Wahhabi Salafism as a culture and a creed, which has got out of control and is still the ideological basis of Isil – and which will continue to exist even if we stop their advance in Iraq.”
‘Campaign Against Arms Trade’ on Saudi Arabia
For two years the government has refused to stop its immoral and illegal arms sales to Saudi Arabia, ignoring and denying the overwhelming evidence that UK weapons are being used in violations of international humanitarian law in Yemen.
On 7 February, we took it to the High Court and are now awaiting a judgement. Read more about what our Judicial Review means and how you can support the campaign at this critical time.

Fighters say government operated ‘open door’ policy allowing them to join rebels, as authorities investigate background of Manchester bomber
The British government operated an “open door” policy that allowed Libyan exiles and British-Libyan citizens to join the 2011 uprising that toppled Muammar Gaddafi even though some had been subject to counter-terrorism control orders, Middle East Eye can reveal.
Several former rebel fighters now back in the UK told MEE that they had been able to travel to Libya with “no questions asked” as authorities continued to investigate the background of a British-Libyan suicide bomber who killed 22 people in Monday’s attack in Manchester.
Stop Arming Terrorists
“Under U.S. law it is illegal for any American to provide money or assistance to al-Qaeda, ISIS or other terrorist groups. If an American citizen gave money, weapons or support to al-Qaeda or ISIS, he or she would be thrown in jail. Yet the U.S. government has been violating this law for years, quietly supporting allies and partners of al-Qaeda, ISIL, Jabhat Fateh al Sham and other terrorist groups with money, weapons, and intelligence support, in their fight to overthrow the Syrian government.”
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard’s Stop Arming Terrorists Act (H.R.608) would stop the U.S. government from using taxpayer dollars to directly or indirectly support groups who are allied with and supporting terrorist groups like ISIS and al Qaeda in their war to overthrow the Syrian government. The legislation is based on congressional action during the Iran-Contra affair to stop the CIA’s illegal arming of rebels in Nicaragua. It is endorsed by Progressive Democrats of America, the U.S. Peace Council, and Veterans For Peace.
