Most taxpayers know that evading tax is a crime, but how many of us know that paying tax, council tax, fines, PAYE, can also be a war crime?

Saudi Arabian oil is drying up, and scientific research by international drilling companies show that Yemen’s unexploited oil reserves are greater than the combined reserves of all the oil-rich Gulf states.
As many of you already know, every year at noon on the 15th of May we come together in Tavistock Square at the Conscientious Objectors’ Stone to remember all those who established and maintain the right to refuse to kill. The hour-long ceremony will consist of some short speeches, songs written and lead by Sue Gilmurray, a minutes’ silence and the laying of flowers.
When Parliament enacted two new laws it made it a criminal offence for a person to ask for, receive or provide money knowing or suspecting that [some of] it may be used for the purposes of terrorism or war.
As the law defines terrorism as the use of firearms or explosives endangering life for a political cause, and the Supreme Court has stated that the definition would appear to extend to military activity aimed at bringing down a foreign government, even where that activity is approved by the UK government” and the UK Government uses money raised by taxation to pay HM forces to use high-explosive weapons and firearms to endanger and take lives in Iraq and Syria, and there is nothing in the legislation excluding tax from the crimes, it is clear that collecting or paying tax while HM Government uses some of the money for the purposes of terrorism or war is a criminal offence.

Upon my return from Aleppo, where we had visited three of the main, abandoned, White Helmet/Nusra Front centres in Sakhour, Marjeh and Bab Al Nairab, I had the privilege of speaking to Edward Rhymes of the Rhymes Media Group. Listen ~
Oscar-winning Al Qaeda improv group ‘The White Helmets’ have dazzled western film critics with their realistic and accurate portrayal of chemical attack first responders who wear sandals — but not everyone gave them glowing reviews on Rotten Tomatoes.
“The statement made by UK’s Defense Minister Michael Fallon calls for a harsh response and I’m not afraid of going too far. At best this statement may be seen as an element of a psychological war, which looks especially revolting in this context,” Frants Klintsevich wrote on Facebook.
“There is a quite natural question then: what country could be primitively targeted by the UK?” the deputy head of the Federation Council’s Committee for Defense and Security said.
More reasons to believe that the Idlib chemical weapons attack was indeed a false flag, for which the US, UK, France (and many western powers) are trying to cover up.
The Organisation For The Prohibition Of Chemical Weapons has rejected Russia and Iran’s proposal for a new team to probe the suspected chemical attack earlier this month in Syria. Moscow’s pushing for a wider investigation, because it believes the OPCW cannot properly confirm anything until it’s actually visited the site.
The blocking of the Russian proposal at the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) on investigating the alleged chemical weapon use in Syria’s Idlib province aims to direct attention to the idea of regime change in Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.
The OPCW is not willing to properly probe the alleged chemical attack in Idlib. This is very odd.
What does a proper investigation entail?
