UK Home Office website brought down by Denial of Service attack by Anonymous

By Dark Politricks

The UK Home Office website has been the subject of a Denial of Service attack by the group Anonymous.

Over Saturday night and Sunday morning and intermittently at the moment the UK Home Office Site was (and sometimes still is) unavailable to visit.

The reasons for the attack are clear and are mainly due to the recent revelation that the coalition government is going to introduce a Big Brother style system at the UK’s surveillance site GCHQ that would destroy all web users privacy and allow the UK security services to monitor all website, email, social media and all other forms of Internet traffic.

All this so they can spot signs of “malcontent” or possible signs of “unsocial or undesirable activities being planned” like the recent London Riots which were organised on social media sites. Of course this is all sold to us under the guise of protecting the UK from terrorist attacks.

Anonymous Twitter messages warned of the attack on 4 April, and said:

“EXPECT a DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) every Saturday on the UK Government sites.”

They have also tweeted that the attack would occur every Saturday from now on.

Other tweets said the attack was related to the unfair extradition treaty that could see Gary McKinnon extradited to the USA for crimes committed in the UK.

“You should not give UK citizens to foreign countries without evidence. If an offence happened in the UK, so should the trial.”

Many other tweets also attacked our current unfair extradition treaty that allows UK citizens from Gary McKinnon to the Student Richard O’Dwyer, of Chesterfield, who is also fighting extradition on copyright infringement charges on a website he ran from the UK.

These unbalanced extradition laws were implemented by the previous authoritarian Labour government and allow UK citizens to be extradited with little evidence given.

However an American citizen cannot be extradited to our country under the same conditions and proper proof of a crime being committed by the person has to be given first for their extradition to the UK to be allowed.

This unfair extradition treaty was supposed to be re-balanced though the supposed “Freedom Bill” that was heralded as a restoration of civil rights that had been removed by Labour government.

It was supposed to re-balance the extradition treaty along with a large number of other Big Brother offences including the right to protest near parliament, the right to remain silent when arrested and many others. But surprise surprise when the bill was published it was a very cut down version that had all these very important measures removed.

Last month the Commons Home Affairs Select Committee said major changes were needed to the UK-US extradition treaty to restore “public faith”.

The MPs said they believed it was “easier to extradite a British citizen to the USA than vice versa”.

Even though some MP’s in the coalition seem to want to reduce the size of our existing surveillance state, from David Davis to Lib Dem MP Chris Huhne who recently lost his ministerial job due to a charge of perverting the course of justice, and many others concerned about the loss of UK citizens privacy under our big government.

However it seems there are not enough numbers of MP’s to make enough noise to change potential privacy destroying bills or stand up to the establishment that continues to expand its surveillance state whoever sits in government.

You could call this the non-elected government who controls everything behind the scenes anything from the UK civil service to the globalist cabal that meet each year at Bilderberg.

They could be the the rich and powerful donors to each political party or even the security services that keep their jobs whoever is in power.

Or you may go further and call this un-elected establishment the all seeing and all pervasive deep state that exists across borders and controls all countries politicians through bribery, patronage, sex, money and blackmail. You could even go further down the rabbit hole  but I will leave that to you to to explore yourselves.

The group Anonymous seem to be acting in the interests of Internet freedom and anti-surveillance measures and I hope they are.

But due to their totally anonymous  nature I worry that they could easily be infected by pro-globalist agents who then carry out attacks that make it even more likely that anti-Internet actions like the USA’s “Internet Kill Switch” or the UK’s new Internet surveillance powers are introduced.

Earlier this week Anonymous claimed to have defaced almost 500 websites in China.

A message put on the hacked sites said the attack was carried out to protest against the Chinese government’s strict control of its citizens.

Will the Chinese government listen I wonder or will they implement even stricter controls. It will be interesting to see.

As for the UK Home Office website I can access it very quickly at the moment but as I watch UK news some journalists are saying the site is still unavailable. Is this just to keep the story alive during the 24 hour news cycle I wonder?

Lets hope the bill that that has been proposed by the government to snoop and spy on us all is actually stopped or at least watered down. The President of the Lib Dem’s, Tim Farron,  said on the Andrew Marr show this morning:

“I am prepared to recognise that there is obviously a need in modern society with new technology to have a look at what needs to be given to the security services but only if it is absolutely clear there is no universal access.”

“But we are prepared to kill them, be absolutely clear about that, if it comes down to it.”

But I hold out little hope that any liberty lovers in government will do anything that doesn’t give our already too powerful security services more powers to snoop and spy on us.

Maybe we should just admit that everything we do on the web is already read, analysed and grouped in databases for levels of malcontent.

We  already know they have super computers to spy on us and that if you want to remain anonymous on the internet it is basically impossible.

If only the Lib Dem’s had actually managed to force through a real Freedom Bill…

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
