"Why would Gavin Williamson go to the Atlantic Council? Well this is what the Council say they are about:"
"Working Together to Secure the Future: Renewing the Atlantic Community for Global Challenges"
"The Atlantic Council promotes constructive leadership and engagement in international affairs based on the Atlantic Community`s central role in meeting global challenges. The Council provides an essential forum for navigating the dramatic economic and political changes defining the twenty-first century by informing and galvanising its uniquely influential network of global leaders. Through the papers we write, the ideas we generate, and the communities we build, the Council shapes policy choices and strategies to create a more secure and prosperous world."
"Well," says Brian Gerrish, "We always say to our audience, `Do your own research` and if you do your own research on this, `Go and have a look at the people involved`. Now I just had a look at a couple. We`ve got pretty aggressive, tired, American military people. `Their interest`, as they state, `is simply America`s best interest`. So that doesn`t even include Britain. We`ve got a bit of a split personality here as well, but this one caught my eye. This is the Chief Executive Frederick Kempe."
"Before joining the Council, Kempe was a prize-winning editor and reporter at the Wall Street Journal for more than twenty-five years. - So we have a newspaper reporter [who] summons Britain`s minister of war to tell him, presumably, what he thinks that young Gavin should do. This would be humorous were it not for the fact that it`s think tanks like Atlantic Council that are producing the very policy that schoolboys like Gavin Williamson are then putting in place; and the dismantling of UK`s military is all part, of course, of helping the structure of EU military unification and the EU military bloc then forms part of the trilateral programme of the Americas, Europe and Asia .... But we`ll come on to more of that in our future news programme."

"Now why is this important? And why is this a problem for us? Well they`re saying that the strategy proposes significant reforms across the public and private sectors to build a fairer society... They say that people and communities and charitable organisations will be at the centre of decision making. This is Big Society on steroids, but here`s the main bullet points of what they`re talking about."
"Unlocking £20 million from inactive charitable trusts. So they`re going to steal money from inactive charitable trusts and this is going to support community organisations over the next two years and it`s going to be carried out in conjunction with the Charity Commission and UK community foundations."
"They`re going to launch an `Innovation in Democracy` pilot scheme in six regions across the country. This will [innovate] creative ways to make a more direct role in decisions that effect local areas. So this is kind of extending the participatory democracy idea to include pilot schemes to get people to vote or have local referenda and these kind of things. It might include citizens juries or mass participation in decision making in community issues by online poll or app."
"OK. They`re going to establish an independent organisation that will distribute £90 million from dormant bank accounts. More stealing of money out of bank accounts. Now these are dormant bank account. They say that if you suddenly realised you had a dormant bank account and you`ve forgotten about it and you forgot your money was there that you can come back and reclaim that money at a later date. Well, it doesn`t matter; it`s still stealing people`s money."
"Creating an independent organisation to use £55 million from dormant bank accounts. What else are they going to do? They`re going to support charities to make their voices heard on issues that matter to them."
"They are going to `strengthen Britain`s values of corporate responsibility, through the launch of a major new Leadership Group`. We`ll come back to that."
"They`re going to `use digital technology for good to improve the work charities can provide`. Does that mean for the benefit of people? Or does that mean they`re going to use digital technology forever? I think it means forever."
"But anyway they say they`re `improving the use of the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 to ensure that organisations can generate more social value for communities`."
"So this is what Jeremy Wright who`s currently the digital minister, the secretary of state for digital communities, digital culture, media and sports said: `Our plans stand side-by-side with the industrial strategy, supporting its drive to grow the economy, while creating an environment where people and communities are at the heart of decision-making.` So this all sounds very good. But let`s just remind ourselves of the Fusion Doctrine because that`s what this is all about. This is bringing businesses, charities and the public sector together with government, blurring the lines between them and removing any kind of restriction on their activities..."
"Can we demonstrate that? Well yes we can. Let`s have a look at the sort of opening words of the strategy document. It said. `For the purpose of this Strategy, civil society refers to individuals and organisations when they act with the primary purpose of creating social value, independent of state control. By social value we mean enriched lives and a fairer society for all. So there`s that word `fairer` again. What is social value actually ? Well, let`s go to the Big Lottery Fund which is, of course, one of the big funders of the Big Society and of course this is all about doing good, Brian. Creating social value is all about doing good. But when we actually look in a bit more detail we find that it`s Common Purpose ideology wrapped up in nice language as evidenced by the fact that Julia Middleton has been writing articles for the Big Lottery Fund on this issue and of course Julia Middleton, founder of Common Purpose, this ubiquitous so-called charity with political aims that provides leadership."
"And if we go back to the document again, to the main bullet points, of course, what they`re talking about here is a major new leadership group. So here we`re seeing Common Purpose connections right through this."
"But here`s the key point. This is the main danger of this whole thing. ... Because, what is the relationship between us as individuals and the state? It`s based on this:"
The state may do nothing but that which is expressly authorised by law, while the individual may do anything but that which is forbidden by law.
"This is a fundamental part of the common law constitution in the UK and it applies to every common law nation in the world and it was established formally by this case law Entick-v-Carrington  It has existed since then. It`s existed for a lot longer than that piece of case law that simply rubber stamped what was already in existence."
"But here is the attitude of the local authorities and this was John Tradewell who was at the time director of Democracy Law & Transformation, Staffordshire County Council. And he says: `A local authority has power to do anything... Those are the words that everyone will hear and understand. As well as freeing us from parliament, the power will give us independence from government. We, not Westminster, know what`s in the best interests of our people and communities."
"No it doesn`t [have the power to do anything.] Let`s go back to this:"
"`The state, and its representatives like a local authority, may do nothing but that which is expressly authorised by law` John Tradewell says a local authority has the power to do anything. If the local authority has the power to do anything then it has the power to put you in prison without due process or to do all kinds of things."
Brian Gerrish: "Well let`s remind people ... why we were interested in this gentleman because he was part of Staffordshire County Council which was taking children - babies - wrenching them out of the hands of their crying mothers and trying to go after UK Column for exposing this heinous behaviour by Staffordshire County Council. He was part of the legal team who no doubt assisted producing their court documentation."
"Absolutely. So here`s the local authority. The local authority has the power to do anything. Those are the words that everyone will hear and understand. As well as freeing us from parliament, the power will give us independence from government. We, not Westminster, know what`s in the best interests of our people and communities."
Brian Gerrish. "Right. And remember when the term `we` is used in reference to a County Council or a City Council we`re actually talking about the cabinet who hold the power within that authority..."
Mike Robinson: "And not the elected representatives."
Brian Gerrish. "Not the elected representatives. So Cabinet may only be eight people of which the chief executives usually control them like a private fiefdom. And. of course, they`re backed up by the vast numbers of people in their legal departments. So these are very dangerous entities. If they believe that they have the power to do anything or everything - that seems to be the case - then they`ve got all the tools to impose that power on the public, even though it`s public money that`s being used to pay their salaries in the first place."
"Absolutely. And I just say again, people should read that quote and be fearful of it because look at what he`s saying: `freeing us from parliament, independence from government, we, not Westminster. This is spectacular language."
"This is hidden city state language."
"Absolutely. It`s going right through this city region policy. This is a fundamental change in our relationship with the state as individuals and this new Civil Society Strategy takes us a step further because by merging government, local government, charities, the private sector together to `do good`, they`re giving all these bodies the idea that they have the power to do anything, ride roughshod over the rights of individuals. This is unlimited power and well we`ve been talking about this for a very long time and there are a host of articles on the UK Column website which have been trying to highlight the dangers..."
