Jet deal with Saudi Arabia

Just read in the news today about a major arms deal with Saudi Arabia. The £4 billion order will secure British Aerospace Jobs and that of course is good news but... why are we supplying a regime with one of the worst human rights records in the world. A country enslaved by the house of Saud who keep their citizens under control with fear, torture and death? A country where woman have no say and are treated as second class citizens. At the moment they are allies of the west of course but let's not forget so was Saddam hussein's Iraq at one time, when it was convenient.

How shameful that we have these successive Governments who preach to us one thing while doing another, bit like the Saudi Royals actually! We hear all about the phoney war on terror all the time which gives them the excuse to take more of our freedoms and then they are back slapping about supplying this regime with high tech killing machines. When will the human race ever wake up?

Madeline McCann

Whatever your opinion is, the truth is that none of us have all the facts in this case. The endless speculation that is coming from the media is doing no help for anyone least of all Madeline. If she is still alive then the attention on her parents is being diverted away from the efforts to find her.

I find it difficult to believe that her parents had anything to do with her disappearance in fact I don't think they did at all. Some of the suggestions coming out at the moment are totally unfounded and appear quite ridiculous.

What we do know is that paedophiles rings are extremely well organized and very clever. They also contain many high ranking officials in the Police, Judiciary and Government. Also people of vast wealth who can quite easily cover their tracks and arrange for the finger of suspicion to point elsewhere - that's why they get away with it, plus people just do not suspect such apparently upstanding citizens!

I hope that this little girl is still alive and that she will soon be back with her parents and that this case will help to highlight the hundreds of thousands of children who disappear every year whose plights never get any publictiy at all.

I am about to commit heresy!

You see I am not all together convinced that global warming is being caused by human carbon emissions... there i have said it!

"Are you insane Paul, 'everyone' knows we are responsible for global warming the T.V, newspapers, rock stars, government and that nice Al Gore fellow all say it is our fault are you one of those horrible global warming deniers?"

Well let's get one thing absolutely straight pollution is not good and we should do everything we can to reduce it, but if you are asking me if I think it is responsible for global warming then I am not convinced and neither are a lot of other people.

The thing is once something becomes generally accepted, as this theory has, and it is still only a theory, then it becomes increasingly difficult for anyone with an opposing view to get that view heard. Happens all the time and yet there are many well respected scientists who say the theory of carbon emissions being responsible is nonsense. Ever see many of them on TV? No i thought not.

I far better explanation why the temperature of the planet is rising is because the sun is releasing more solar radiation and this can be seen in the corresponding increase in sunspot activity. Some of these explosions are enormous and can be as big as the Earth and even Jupiter.

The increased solar radiation has two main effects on our temperature.
Firstly a hotter sun = a hotter earth which is pretty obvious.
secondly, the increased solar radiation reduces 'cosmic rays' reaching the Earth. It's the interaction between the cosmic rays and water vapour that forms clouds. Fewer clouds means more heat from sun gets through.

Carbon Footprints on Jupiter?

Mars, Jupiter and Saturn are also seeing rising temperatures which I am pretty sure is not being caused by carbon dioxide emissions from Earth. These increased temperatures are being caused by solar radiation.

When this was pointed out to a global warming 'expert' he said it was due to these planets being closer to the sun. Ok any one can make a mistake, even 'experts' as I'm sure most school children could tell him that The Earth is closer to the sun the any of those planets.

Interestingly, sunspot activity rose from before the industrial Revolution to 1940 then fell to 1975 before increasing again until now. TV documentaries in 1975 were all about the impending new ice age.

which leads to the question "why has this theory been so readily accepted by nearly everyone?" Well firstly, most people just believe what they hear on the news, not knowing that most 'news' items are not very well researched and are basically press releases given by the 'experts' in government or other groups which are simply regurgitated by the newsreader.

Next everyone keeps repeating the story over and over as if it is an established fact until gradually it becomes accepted. This tactic has been used over and over again throughout history and of course is even easier to do now with the advent of the internet and global TV.

So while obviously it is very important to minimise pollution maybe we are not quite as guilty of causing global warming as we are being lead to believe. it is certainly not necessary to continually raise taxes and give more power away to a centrally located global government.

Well speak to you all again soon providing of course the thought police have not taken me away in irons.

Two of my aims for this year are to help at least 5000 people overcome their fears and phobias and secondly to raise several thousand pounds for Children's Hospices. I find it absolutely amazing that these hospices need to raise millions of pounds each year to remain open. When i look at the millions, no billions of pounds that are spent on useless projects by successive Governments and these hospices need donations to survive. At a recent conference a cheque was presented to Great Ormond Street and the person who accepted the cheque said that they need in the region of £50 million a year! This world famous children's hospital relies on donations and fund raising.

Now back to freeing the 5000 from their fears and phobias. I know that if we got one hundred people in a room that within the hour 70% would be cured of their phobia or it would be significantly reduced. Isn't that just amazing, and within two hours we could probably make it 80%. The remainder would need a little more in depth work but I could probably help most of them too. Isn't it marvellous that we have these tools available which can achieve that rate of success?
What sort of fears are we talking about - anything that causes you to have an unnatural response to something e.g. water, animals - cats, dogs, birds, fish, etc. etc. , flying, social events, public speaking, fear of success or failure, injections, dentists, anything at all. The list could go on and on. I would like to do this with 500 people at a time, that would really make short work of my 5000 target. Must start looking into it.

I have just returned from four days in Bournemouth at the most fantastic conference. It was organised by marketing 'guru' Andrew Reynolds to raise money for Great Ormond Street - and it did. Over £400,000! It was a sell out with over three and a half thousand people and i'm glad that i played my part in making it a success. When successful people take the time to share their secrets it's a good idea to listen to them and take note. I know, and so do they, that probably 95% of those people will take very little action or probably no action at all. So out of 3500 only 175 will take significant action. I wonder why that is? Could it be their belief systems sabotaging their efforts?
