Susan Deacon GONE! Next, SACK Iain Livingstone as Chief Constable of Police Scotland.

I offered to serve as Chair of the Scottish Police Authority and my first act, which should have been Susan Deacon’s act, but wasn’t and this is where she went wrong on day one, would be to SACK IAIN LIVINGSTONE as acting Chief Constable and not allow him to be considered for the post of Chief Constable.


I knew that acting Chief Constable Iain Livingstone was not up to the job, before Deacon was appointed, because Livingstone had incompetently commanded his officers so as to arrest me for something as trivial as a flirtatious email to a lady SNP Councillor, who has since resigned in disgrace after bearing false witness against me in Aberdeen Sheriff Court.

Livingstone has been mismanaging Police Scotland as Gestapo Scotland, meaning prioritising arresting political activists who are in any way critical of the SNP leadership.

It goes without saying that Livingstone’s Gestapo Scotland has neglected the proper duties of police such as to enforce drugs laws, resulting in Scotland having the worst death rate from drug abuse in the European Union.

I’m still available to serve, whether as a replacement for Deacon or as the next Chief Constable.

Read my blog posts for the details of how Police Scotland is operating as a Gestapo in Scotland, under Chief Constable Livingstone and the SNP government.

Mackay is demanding much too little money for Holyrood’s credit limit

TOO LITTLE. TOO LATE.

Pig-ignorant Mackay is demanding much too little money and too late to save his job.

Satirises Derek Makay, happy as a pig in a pigsty

Mackay is demanding only the ability to rack up £1 billion of debt a year – that’s about 0.6% of Scottish GDP – peanuts, an insult to Scottish savers, most of whose savings would still be robbed blind by the UK.

We should be demanding the ability to rack up about £14 billion of debt a year – that’s about 8% of GDP – that’s proper government borrowing powers.

Mackay wants an increase in the overdraft to only £10 billion.

We should want NO overdraft limit whatsoever, only the yearly cap which can be borrowed every year indefinitely, with NO interest payments and NO repayment of the sums borrowed.

Pig-ignorant Mackay wants to pay interest and to repay the sums borrowed – pig ignorant about economics and how government borrowing works. Mackay thinks like a toon cooncillor who has to beg to borrow.

Mackay doesn’t want to govern like a government which is in charge of its own central bank and can borrow its own currency at will. That’s not a borrowing power that a toon cooncillor like Mackay would know what to do with.

Mackay is a pipsqueak of a Finance and Economy Secretary, completely out of his depth and he must be sacked for the good of the Scottish economy.

The bad deal Fiscal Framework Agreement

For years, the Scottish economy has been stagnant, with very weak growth because in 2016, the SNP made a bad deal with the UK which crushed the Scottish government’s powers to borrow money from the UK.

MSPs could have renounced the bad deal at any time. MSPs could have fought for a better £ deal with the UK, or set up a new Scottish currency and central bank to borrow from at will, but they didn’t. MSPs were too slow and too stupid and they took bad advice from a clueless university bureaucrat by the name of Anton Muscatelli, whom Glasgow University and the City of Glasgow would be miles better without.

So MSPs stuck with the bad deal which framed Holyrood budgets for austerity and weak growth, year after year. Scots suffered austerity but Sturgeon told lies and blamed only the UK for austerity when it was her signature on the bad deal. She had agreed with austerity in writing.

Finally, in September 2019, the penny finally dropped for one MSP – the new Scottish Labour leader Richard Leonard, who wrote an opinion piece in the Scotsman which criticised the SNP’s bad deal that Kezia Dugdale, the previous Scottish Labour leader never had the wits to disagree with. Dugdale resigned as Labour leader and an MSP to work for Muscatelli whose bad advice she is presumably still taking. Dugdale was an economically-ignorant celebrity and she got herself out of Holyrood!

“SNP have locked us into a bad deal” – Richard Leonard & Peter Dow agree.

John Swinney and Nicola Sturgeon have signed up to a bad financial settlement, says Richard Leonard, writing in the Scotsman on 24th September 2019. Peter Dow agrees and adds …

Richard is right. The SNP’s bad deal fiscal framework crushes the Scottish Parliament’s borrowing powers, framing Holyrood austerity budgets to fail the Scottish economy, making it all but impossible to deliver growth and prosperity for the people of Scotland, which is totally unacceptable to anyone who cares for Scots.

I’ve argued that a good deal fiscal framework would allow for Scottish government £ Sterling borrowing powers capped at no less than an average of 8% of Scottish GDP – about £14 billion per year – borrowed interest-free, with no repayments, the sums borrowed simply added to the Scottish national debt – in other words, macro-economic borrowing powers for Holyrood, akin to those of a sovereign government with its own central bank borrowing powers.

8% GDP is not unreasonable for government borrowing to fund its fiscal deficit and is about what the UK borrowed on average for the 5 years following the global financial crisis of 2008, which allowed the UK economy to grow strongly out of recession.

The UK could of course refuse such a good deal £ Sterling fiscal framework, if and when the Scottish government finally demand one such – in which case establishing a Scottish currency and Scottish central bank is the appropriate response for the Scottish Government and Parliament to take. There is no sign that Richard Leonard has reached nor crossed that particular bridge yet but he has come this far so one can but hope that he or the next Scottish Labour leader will get there one day.

23rd June 2020: Alex Neil on Holyrood’s borrowing limits

“it is for the Scottish Government and the other devolved Governments in the UK to be able to borrow the money that will be needed for economic recovery directly from the Bank of England, and on exactly the same terms and conditions as the UK Government.
… Now is an opportunity for the UK Government to give the Scottish Government the same borrowing powers. That would mean, like the UK Government, paying no interest; having no timescale for re-payment, like the UK Government; and having the power to write off loans from the Bank of England, as the UK Government already did with money that it borrowed for the recession. That is where the money should come from. … Throw the fiscal framework out the window. It is no longer fit for purpose. Give us some real short-term powers that we can use to save the Scottish economy.”
Alex Neil MSP, Scottish Parliament, 23rd June 2020

Finally, a repudiation of the bad deal fiscal framework from an SNP MSP – Alex Neil speaking like a true economist. 🙂

Students and the public shouldn’t support ANY university staff pay claim or strike

As a science graduate of Edinburgh University, a former Glasgow college lecturer and a mature post-graduate science student who was unjustly excluded from both Universities in Aberdeen (AU & RGU) leaving me with the worst-possible reference (“we don’t even allow him on campus”), from which my career as a scientist never recovered, I have a unique perspective on university pay disputes.

Whilst unjustified student exclusions are the fault of mismanagement failing to find a way for people to work together, those unjust exclusions often follow a complaint from a lecturer or department administrator, unwilling to allow tough questions to be asked of staff by “mere students”, however educated and qualified those students may be.

University Principals are those most responsible for hiring lawyers to obtain court orders to enforce exclusions from the campus.

My complaint about the staff in general is that collectively they show no solidarity with excluded students whom one of their fellow staff colleagues may have complained about. The solidarity is always with the tenured staff member to support principals who exclude any student who asks tough questions.

Whilst collective action from staff is often evident to support a wage claim, never in a million years can one imagine collective action by university staff in support of excluded students.

Such excluded students are left to rot on the dole for the rest of their lives, or tormented by Jobcentre staff and made mentally ill by having their benefits cut off. Such individuals as myself are the “skeletons in the cupboard” of academia – only I am one such skeleton who is still blowing the whistle!

So that’s why I don’t support such pay claims, as I explained to a BBC Radio Scotland phone-in program some years ago.

Peter Dow (on radio) re: Scottish Universities Pay Dispute

Lecturers and students who didn’t welcome my tough questions, typically complained that I was “disruptive”, misrepresenting my constructive line of questioning.

They couldn’t go complaining to management about my “constructive” questions without looking foolish, now could they?

Better to save face by pretending that I was “disruptive”, embellish their account so as to paint me in as bad a light as they can.

Academics claiming that they “don’t want” students excluded is insincere when they never lift a finger to oppose or reverse exclusions.

Academics who claim they cannot imagine dishonesty in their colleagues either lack imagination or are dishonest themselves.

In my case, academics testified as witnesses for the prosecution, for my exclusion, as to my alleged “disruptive” behaviour at lectures etc. so my experience is to the contrary of any claims that academic staff “do not want exclusion”.

“Gown” versus “Town”

Academics (“Gown”) are willing to take industrial action action against the university management (“Town”) in support of wages and conditions, so it is untrue to pretend that “Gown” doesn’t ever interfere with “Town” management decisions ever.

The contrast is the courage when selfishly striking for university staff’s own wages compared to the indifference or moral cowardice in not striking, not even speaking out, in solidarity with excluded students.

Academics don’t speak out politically in support of excluded students but have misled the polity by pretending that excluded students can be “expected to do very well”, whereas the deck is very much stacked against us when we are excluded.

My career as a scientist was ruined, long term unemployed and on the sick, with no social life, no friends, no family of my own.

I was excluded from the University of Aberdeen from 1991 and the Robert Gordon University in 2003 and have never been included anywhere else that I wanted to be as a first choice since then.

It is too late for me to expect the experience of decades of exclusion since then not to determine my future. It has determined the last 28 years of my life, ruining it completely.

My life has been totally destroyed by my exclusion!

“Study at the Open University”

Having left my college lecturing job from boredom, I didn’t want to do an O.U. course, still don’t, because I lacked and still lack a social life.

When you are socially isolated, you need the company of your peers. You want to make friends, perhaps find a partner in life to start a family with.

What you don’t need is your peers excluding you from their company because you might ask some tough questions.

What I need is solidarity against the mismanagement of the Universities of Aberdeen and the mismanagement of the courts which prevented me from holding them to account.

I need restorative action which removes the bad management and lets me back on campus in Aberdeen to put the record straight at every public meeting on campus, where I can speak out and reduce the reputation of the past years of mismanagement to the “lowest of the low” which is appropriate.

I have been grievously wronged and the wrong-doers must be held to account.

There must be justice and accountability and compensation, though I fear the compensation I would demand would break the Bank of England but no apology nor compensation whatsoever has ever been offered to me.

So the solution here must be to remove the accreditation of all UK universities and of the standing of the kingdom and monarchy which gave them their royal charters that they never deserved in the first place.

The Windsor royal family must be exiled from Britain before we, the people, can then turn in a “year zero” to confronting the UK elites who have abused their positions of trust in the kingdom.

We’ll see how brave academics etc. are when they don’t have a fascist police state to exclude their critics.

Meanwhile, Ivory Tower fascists do not deserve any wage nor any pension – social security payments only until they put their own house in order.

No, Spanish fascists may not take our Clara Ponsati political prisoner!

Any request by the Spanish fascist police state to send an arrest and extradition request to Scotland to dare to take our beloved Clara Ponsati political prisoner must be rebuffed in the strongest terms by the Crown Office without hesitation.

Lord Were-Wolffe

Lord Were-Wolffe, James Wolffe, Sturgeon’s Lord Advocate

If it is not, if James Wolffe, Alison di Rollo and David Harvie entertain such a request from Spain then they should be sacked by the First Minister, for violating human rights law and for gross incompetence in resisting the fascist abuse of legal process.

If any officer of Police Scotland dares to arrest Clara Ponsati then Susan Deacon and Iain Livingstone should be sacked by the Justice Secretary.

If Nicola Sturgeon and Humza Yousaf sit on their hands and do nothing, just allow the officials they have appointed to proceed with any such arrest and extradition attempt then Sturgeon must be dismissed as First Minister by the Scottish Parliament and that will remove Yousaf as Justice Secretary too.

If Sturgeon sacks Wolffe as Lord Advocate but he tries to cling onto office because the Queen won’t rubber stamp Sturgeon’s order then the Queen must be banned from Scotland, the Scottish Parliament calling on any military to enforce the ban.

Try to understand that we are dealing with fascists here and democracy cannot afford to play footsie with fascists.

Fascists need to be nipped in the bud. NOW!

Plan B for Scottish Independence

1. Follow Peter Dow’s Road Map to Scottish Independence (explained below).

2. Win home rule of broadcasting, set up a Scottish Broadcasting Corporation.

3. Finally hold indyref2 with the level playing field of fair broadcasting coverage of the strongest arguments for independence that the BBC would never broadcast – all the many arguments against Queen, Kingdom and Empire, explaining how and why an independent Scotland governed democratically as a Scottish republic with an elected president would make all the difference to Scottish independence and to dealing with problems of the incompetence of royalist misgovernment and mismanagement.

The Road Map to Scottish Independence

We march for independence raising our own Scottish flags in defiance of the tyranny of the United Kingdom.

We note the unjustified arrests in Scotland by the United Kingdom police force styled as “Police Scotland”.

We note the unjustified imprisonments in United Kingdom prisons styled as “Her Majesty’s Prisons”.

We are offended by these UK violations of the constitutional rights and freedoms of the People of Scotland.

We assert and act in defence of the constitutional sovereignty of the People of Scotland.

We overthrow the misrule of the United Kingdom and its monarch, Queen Elizabeth.

We ban Queen Elizabeth and her family from Scotland!

We call on any military to enforce our ban by using all means necessary!

We unilaterally declare that Scotland is an independent country!

We call on the Scottish Parliament to agree a motion in similar terms.

The “Gold Standard” for Scottish Independence

The BBC broadcast Ian Blackford at the SNP conference, claiming that his Plan A is the “gold standard”.

I beg to differ.

In my opinion, Plan A, straight from the Alex Salmond playbook, is not the “gold standard”, not with the BBC rigging politics coverage, giving the Queen and her ministers a get-out-of-jail-free card every time.

The 2014 indyref with biased, unionist BBC politics coverage and censorship of the best arguments for independence was the wooden-spoon standard of independence referendum and a unionist trap that the UK puppet Alex Salmond fell right into.

So thanks but no thanks. No more wooden-spoon indyrefs for Scotland.

Scots deserve the true gold standard – a first-ever free-and-fair independence campaign, with fair broadcasting which broadcasts ALL the arguments for independence, broadcasts ALL the arguments against the union of Scotland with a United Kingdom, Queen, monarchy and empire.

The Treachery of Plan A royalists

Sturgeon Betrays Scotland

Standing to sing “God Save the Queen”, the First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon, seeks to make Scots subjects of the Queen of England, contrary to the Sovereignty of the People of Scotland, as enshrined in the Declaration of Arbroath, 1320.

Blair Jenkins, OBE

Blair Jenkins, Order of the British Empire

Blair Jenkins, Order of the British Empire, was the Chief Executive of the YES-Scotland campaign in 2014, is shown in the picture with Prince Charles pinning his OBE onto his jacket.

Plan A royalists, like Alex Salmond, Nicola Sturgeon and Blair Jenkins are saying “YES” to monarchy, the most iniquitous form of government, “YES” to inequality, “NO” to a Scottish republic and “NO” to the democratic election of a Scottish President, duty bound to defend the rights of all Scots as equal citizens.

Plan A royalists are traitors against the people of Scotland and that’s why their Plan A campaigns ring hollow with many and will collapse like a house of cards whenever the BBC broadcasts the Queen telling Scots to “think carefully” etc.

The movement for Scottish independence cannot allow the SNP’s Plan A to wreck our chances of winning our freedom once again.

Now we have this Plan B for Scottish independence and I propose that we put this Plan B into effect without further delay.

BBC rigging Scottish independence referendum with lies and propaganda

The man in the BBC “How to vote in the Scottish referendum” video, to be fair and unbiased should say “If you want Scotland to stay in THE UNITED KINGDOM you put an ‘X’ in the box next to the word ‘NO'”

But the BBC video is not fair, it is biased and so instead the man says “If you want Scotland to stay in BRITAIN you put an ‘X’ in the box next to the word ‘NO'”.

Firstly, geographically, Scotland will stay in Britain, the British Isles, come what may. The Republic of Ireland is still part of the British Isles though that greater part of Ireland left UK political control years ago.

The political choice for Scots is whether we wish to be independent of the United Kingdom or not.

The BBC video conflates geography with politics. They are not the same.

Secondly, even for those Scots with a British political identity, like myself, there are far better political options and futures than maintaining the United Kingdom as is – which better futures the BBC video ignores because the BBC is institutionally biased in favour of the monarchy and kingdom.

Consider a future Britain which was not royalist nor a kingdom but rather democratic and republican. Such a future Britain would become a real possibility for all Britons with the establishment of an independent Scottish republic.

But the BBC, as UK royalist lackeys, ignore the non-UK British future options and always present a royalist, biased and bigoted view of Scotland and Britain and hide the real political choices for Scots and Britons alike.

In addition, this BBC video promotes a SNP peacenik video which DISCREDITS a “YES” vote by misrepresenting all “YES” campaigners as smearing Scots Iraq war heroes as “criminals”. Presumably that’s why the BBC chose this video promote – to wreck chances of a “YES” vote.

The fact that the SNP tolerate this peacenik video being promoted by the BBC as representative of the YES campaign shows that the SNP high command have more interest in keeping hold of their peacenik base than winning support from braveheart Scots & Britons for a YES vote.

Once again we can see the SNP are combining with BBC and UK royalists to sabotage any prospect of real Scottish national independence.

The BBC video is part of the BBC RIGGING the independence referendum, brainwashing pro-British Scots to vote “NO” when actually “YES” is the best choice of vote for anyone who wants the best for Britons in Scotland and in due course for Britons in the rest of Britain too.

I’m strongly pro-British, a British nationalist and THEREFORE I am for Scottish independence and for leaving the UK but staying loyal to my fellow Britons in the process.

British politics like mine is ignored and treated with contempt by the BBC video.

This video is typical of BBC royalist, anti-British TREACHERY which disguises imposing the enemy Windsor monarchy & kingdom upon all Scots and Britons as some kind of “national” process when it is rather an act of treason against the nations which denies Scots and all British home nations even the rights of sovereign nations to elect our own head of state.

It was to be expected that the United Kingdom would act to rig this referendum and this video is an example of how they are rigging it.

Scots therefore should refuse to accept any “No” result of a BBC RIGGED independence referendum that brainwashes Scots-Britons to vote “No” by spreading royalist lies and propaganda.

Loyal Britons should chop the Queen’s head off and send it to the smiling bastard in this BBC video with a note telling him that the Scots-Britons are staying with Britain by the best way possible – by LEAVING the United Kingdom.

My “Eureka” moment. A cure for cancer.

Suggesting a scientific approach and method for the medical treatment of tumorous cancer.

Abstract

A new 2-phase treatment to cure cancer is proposed.

Phase 1 would use a live bio-agent paired with a moderating anti-bio-agent drug to target and kill hypoxic cancer tumour cores.

Phase 2 would employ 2 drug types – firstly a mixture of drugs of the growth factor inhibitor type, some (perhaps most) yet to be developed, would be required to halt selectively all normal cell division but not halt the characteristically aberrant cancer cell division and secondly, conventional chemotherapy drugs would be used to target and kill only the dividing cancer cells.

Summary

A scientific approach and method for the medical treatment and cure for tumorous cancer disease is suggested and described.

The desired performance characteristics of suitable types of biological agents and pharmaceutical drugs and an appropriate method of employing those agents and drugs for the treatment and cure of cancer is described.

Caution

Neither the selection of specific agents and drugs, nor the determination of the optimal treatment regimes are described herein because the details for how best to implement the author’s general approach and method to cure cancer still require further research by the scientific and medical community which it is hoped this scientific paper will inform and inspire.

So the reader should be cautioned that the author does not herein publish detailed suggestions for oncologists to prescribe for their cancer patients which pills to pop when. The author is a scientist who is trying to find a cure for everyone one day, not a doctor who can cure someone today.

Invitation to informed discussion

This is claimed to be a realistic scientific paper, not a snake-oil-style cure-all claim. This may not be obvious to everyone because I am an amateur independent scientist, neither employed as a scientist, nor published in traditional scientific journals.

I have published widely on the internet on mostly non-scientific topics and I am accustomed to debating my ideas on-line and so I’m quite comfortable inviting replies perhaps as helpful comments and criticisms from fellow scientists and I can also take questions from any cancer specialists, doctors or other informed parties who take an educated interest in such matters.

Approach and method

One type of biological agent and 3 types of drugs are utilised in 2 distinct treatment phases, perhaps with an intermission between phase 1 and phase 2 of the treatment to review that the goals of phase 1 treatment have been reached before moving on to phase 2.

Treatment Phase 1

It is proposed that phase 1 use a mild anaerobic biological agent (with the suggestion that this is mostly likely to be a selection of a mild, treatable, non-drug-resistant anaerobic bacteria, sourced from a well-characterised laboratory specimen) with which the cancer patient is purposefully infected and 1 type of drug, matched to be a known effective treatment capable in high doses of eliminating the selected bio-agent from the body or in small doses to moderate the intensity of the infection.

During phase 1 treatment, after purposeful infection with the known mild anaerobic bio-agent, the anti-bio-agent drug is administered but only sufficiently to moderate and limit the intensity and systemic effects of the intended mild infection on the patient yet not overly administered to the point that the bio-agent is destroyed in-vivo before it has it has completed the designed treatment objectives of phase 1 treatment.

In phase 1 of treatment, the expectation would be that the patient’s own immune response will be fighting the bio-agent and so the course of the infection must be monitored and bio-agent and drug doses continuously adjusted to maintain a mild infection.

The objectives of phase 1 treatment

The bio-agent is selected with intention that the infection should establish itself in any anaerobic cores of cancer tumours and be supervised there while the infection attacks and in due course kills those cancerous body cells in any and all anaerobic tumour cores in the patient’s body.

The mild anaerobic bio-agent is selected and managed in-vivo so that it cannot be active, only dormant, in most of the aerobic environments of the body which are routinely supplied with oxygen via the blood, and so an appropriate selection and controlled bio-agent should not harm typical body cells so long as the infection is constrained to be mild with limited systemic effects on the body.

The selected bio-agent is not intended to harm those cancer cells which are growing and dividing in an aerobic environment whether in peripheral parts of all tumours or in aerobic tumour cores which are have grown their own blood supply vessels.

The dangers of a failed phase 1 treatment

Too much bio-agent

Inappropriate selection of a drug-resistant bio-agent, neglecting to moderate the intensity of the infection with sufficient drugs or a patient’s weak immune system failing to eliminate the infection at the conclusion of phase 1 of treatment could lead to a run-away infection causing serious and life-threatening infection or death.

Too little bio-agent

Administering insufficient bio-agent, over-use of drugs or a particularly active immune system could lead to the bio-agent failing to establish itself in all anaerobic tumour cores and a failed attempted phase 1 treatment leaving viable anaerobic tumour cores which would inevitably wreck the hopes for a successful outcome to any attempted phase 2 treatment.

Treatment phase 2

It is proposed that two types of pharmaceutical drug are employed in phase 2 treatment and let’s call them type H drugs (“H” for “Halt cell division!” ) and Type K drugs (“K” for “Kill diving cells”).

Type H drugs – Halt cell division!

Type H drugs are the author’s own name for a class of drugs examples of which are used in medicine and biological science and commonly referred to variously as “growth factor blockers”, “growth factor receptor blockers”, “growth factor inhibitors” or “growth factor receptor inhibitors” and possibly other names as well.

Those drugs are designed to target cell growth factor receptors and interfere with growth factors activating growth factor receptors to prompt growth in cells.

A traditional approach in oncology is to attempt to use those drugs directly against cancer cells to try to modify their aberrant excessive growth behaviour. That is not the new approach explained here which is rather to use those growth factor blocker drugs against the growth behaviour of normal cells.

Type H drugs (“H” stands for for “Halt cell division!”) utilise and are intended temporarily to saturate the normal cell-signalling pathways which instruct normal cells not to divide. Normal cells with the exception of cancer cells pay heed to such cell to cell signals and it is one of the defining characteristic of many cancers that cancer cells ignore such signals not to divide and keep on dividing regardless.

The purpose of administering type H drugs is temporarily to overload the normal signals and order an artificial system-wide cessation of all normal cell division in the body. Accordingly, normal cells which frequently divide – skin cells, intestinal wall cells, immune response cells, bone marrow cells, reproductive organ cells etc are tricked into stopping dividing temporarily, so long as the type H drug is administered.

Type H drugs operate in a pharmaceutically reversible way and when the type H drugs clear from the body then the normal body cells which have dutifully followed the artificial signals and temporarily ceased dividing then go back to their normal operation without any permanent damage to the cell.

Clearly, the administration of type H drugs weakens the body systematically which depends on routine cell division and for so long as type H remains in-vivo then harm to the body’s health will accumulate.

Type H drugs don’t do the body any good on their own. Not only that, but for the purpose of treating cancer, type H drugs aren’t intended to do anything significant directly to those cancer cells which are pretty much oblivious to the cell signalling pathways which type H drugs are designed to stimulate.

Mechanism of action of type H drugs

Specifically the mechanisms behind the cessation of general cell division which the type H drugs must target are those which usually control cellular division of cells.

The type H drugs work by interfering with the control mechanisms which the body uses to stimulate or start cell division at certain times and under certain conditions and to suppress or stop cell division at other times and that interference would be designed to jam the control mechanism so as to stop cell division so long as the drug is in the body.

Many types of cancer cells divide regardless of the body’s control mechanisms – such cancer cell division isn’t started selectively so it can’t be stopped either naturally by the body’s control mechanisms and sometimes even artificially by pharmaceutical drugs

Growth factor mechanisms would be suitable targets for targeting by the type H drugs.

So for example, typical normal cells will wait for the appropriate growth factor to attach itself to the corresponding growth factor receptor on the cell’s surface before initiating cell division.

Many types of cancer have cancer cells which will divide regardless of whether there is the appropriate growth factor attached to the cancer cell’s corresponding growth factor receptor or not.

One obvious approach the drug developer could take would be to design a type H drug which mimics a growth factor receptor’s shape and thus will selectively bind to the corresponding growth factor. If there is a lot more of the type H drug in the extra cellular fluid than there are cell growth factor receptors then the growth factor would be mopped up and leave none free in the extra cellular fluid to be available to bind to the cells’ growth factor receptors, thus preventing normal cell growth from being initiated.

A similar approach to date more commonly adopted with blocker-type drugs would be to design a growth factor receptor blocker / inhibitor drug which partially binds to target cell growth factor receptors, not bound accurately enough to activate the cell growth factor receptor function, but sufficiently bound to block growth factor binding to the growth factor receptors.

Whatever the precise mechanism of interference of the type H drug with the growth factor mechanism we can name such type H drugs as “growth factor blockers” or “growth factor inhibitors“.

Type K drugs – Kill dividing cells

In order to understand the utility of type H drugs one has to consider their medical use in conjunction with type K (K stands for “Kill dividing cells”) drugs.

Type K drugs are the author’s name for a class of drugs which are well known to medical science. They are the traditional chemotherapy drugs which have long been used to try to treat cancer by killing dividing cancer cells but the problem with those old drugs is that they tend to kill all dividing cells, not just cancer cells and so have very severe side-effects which can make the patient very ill, very quickly.

OK, well the smarter reader will see by now where we are going with type H drugs. After administration of type H drugs which hopefully succeed in suspending normal cell division without significantly affecting cancer cell division, the administration of the type K drugs is now “a no-brainer”! That is to say, the remaining task for type K drugs becomes a relatively trivial task to accomplish with no undesirable side-effects.

The dividing cancer cells alone should get killed by the type K drugs. The normally dividing cells don’t get killed by the type K drugs because they are no longer dividing thanks to the administration of the type H drugs.

After the dividing cancer cells have died all that remains to be done is to clear the type K drugs from the body while the type H drugs are still in operation. Then later it is safe to discontinue the type H drugs at which point the body will resume normal cell division, free from cancer!

Limitations of phase 2 treatments

One limitation of the simple approach in phase 2 of shutting down all normal cell division in the body would be with those cancer types which are cancerous not so much because the cancer cells divide abnormally but because the cancer cells don’t die or undergo programmed cell death called “apoptosis” normally and are abnormally immortal.

Such normally dividing but abnormally immortal cells would cease dividing if an all-body-tissue type H drugs dose was given and so such cancers wouldn’t be killed by the type K drugs and such a broad-brush approach wouldn’t achieve the cure in phase 2, only the benefits of the treatment in phase 1.

However, it has recently occurred to me that there is still a prospect for a more customised version of my approach offering an admittedly less-than-ideal phase 2 treatment option even against many such normally-dividing abnormally-immortal cancers where the type H drugs comprise of a mixture of different type H drugs, one such type H drug for each tissue type of cell growth factor which needs to be blocked.

To beat the cancer of cells from tissue type X in a normally-dividing abnormally-immortal cell cancers, you’d omit the specific type H drug for the tissue type X growth factor from the type H drugs dose given to that patient and simply intend to kill all dividing cells of tissue type X, which would certainly cause major damage to tissue of type X but maybe in some cases that is a price worth paying to beat the cancer? It’s more of a useful treatment option where medicine can offer an artificial or transplant option to replace damaged tissue of type X, or restore the lost function, as required.

For those remaining stubbornly phase-2-insenstive or intractable cancers, a phase 1 only approach can partially treat tumours while never managing permanently to cure the patient and so a series of phase 1 treatments could be used to achieve a series of remissions of the disease.

With a phase-1-only approach it may be observed in some cases that a permanent cure is fortuitously happened upon because the patient’s immune system is alerted by a phase 1 treatment to learn to identify the cancer cells and to eliminate them naturally in future.

The dangers of a failed phase 2 treatment

The patient will be rendered vulnerable to infectious disease because of the predictable effect of the Type H drug which will prevent parts of the immune system from responding to infections. Worse case of course is that an opportunist infection may kill the patient.

If the Type H drug is not as effective as intended, if the dose is too low, if it is too quickly cleared from the body then the Type K drug will kill normally dividing body cells as well which cripple multiple body functions which depend on dividing cells and worst case kill the patient.

Without a successful phase 1 treatment which has previously killed anaerobic tumour cores, phase 2 treatment will only kill cancer cells dividing in aerobic environments leaving any and all remaining viable anaerobic tumour cores to provide an inexhaustible supply of cancer cells into the aerobic parts of the body. Phase 2 on its own cannot cure cancer; only after a successful phase 1 can it do that.

Conclusion

Sourcing all the type H drugs required for this approach is the biggest unknown at this point but I’d be hopeful that this approach could treat a very large number of cancers indeed, though I would never claim to be able to cure “all” cancers with this approach.

Conceptually, this would seem to be an excellent scientific approach and method for the cure of tumorous cancers.

Dedication

This cure for cancer paper is dedicated to my mother who lives still and to the memory of all my friends and relatives who have died from cancer for whom this cure is too little and too late.

This cure for cancer paper is also dedicated to Condoleezza Rice who has inspired me to understand that I may not be able to control my circumstances as a scientist without employment as such but I can control how I react to my circumstances. Condi’s mother also died from cancer and she has participated in Race for the Cure events.

Prizes.

I do not want the Nobel Prize for Medicine or indeed any Nobel prize so long as Sweden remains governed as a kingdom. I want nothing from the Swedish King nor from any King nor Queen.

I am a republican and only wish to receive prizes, awards or recognition while living or posthumously from republics or at least from non “royal” institutions which find themselves in the unfortunate circumstance of operating as I do inside a country currently governed as a kingdom.

Author’s glossary

Anti-bio-agent drug – an antibiotic drug selected to be used to moderate or to kill a particular bio-agent as and when desired

Bio-agent – a live micro-organism used as an agent to achieve some useful purpose

Type H drug – a growth factor receptor inhibitor drug used in a dose sufficient only to HALT the growth of normal cells but no more, with the intent of allowing cancer cell growth not to be inhibited preparatory to the use of a type K drug

Type K drug – a cytotoxic antineoplastic chemotherapy drug used to KILL dividing cells especially dividing cancer cells while a type H drug inhibits normal cells from dividing

Synergy

My approach offers a better cure by using various drugs and methods in a synergistic way, each making up for the short-fall of the other.

I’d like to review the drawbacks of existing anti-cancer methods and drugs in a simple way and identify how my approach gets around that drawback

Bacterial treatments

Drawback when used in isolation – bacterial treatments cannot be relied upon to kill oxygenated, active cancer cells

Solution in my approach – the phase 2 treatment kills those oxygenated active cancer cells

Traditional chemotherapy using cytotoxic antineoplastic drugs

Drawback when used in isolation – chemo doesn’t kill hypoxic tumour cores meaning that the cancer can come back later & they have serious side-effects and a long recovery period

Solution in my approach – phase 1 kills hypoxic tumour cores so the cancer cannot come back & the side-effects of these drugs used as type K drugs are diminished and the recovery period shorter thanks to the type H drugs

Growth factor inhibitors

Drawback when used in isolation – they only work on some cancers and even then, they don’t kill the cancer cells so the patient has to live life on that medication to stop the cancer growing

Solution in my approach – used as type H drugs, they can protect a tissue or cell type from being killed by chemotherapy; the more type H drugs we can source, the more tissue or cell types can be protected and the patient only needs to take them during the chemo session never after.

Afghanistan roadside bomb kills three Scottish soldiers

Future posts in the “Afghanistan” category will be posted in the AfPak Mission war on terror strategy blog at afpakmission.wordpress.com.

 

Road-side bombs again guys and it’s an attack that works for the Taliban just because we haven’t secured the few main highways we must use by building a secure perimeter around the road – barbed wire, guard posts, minefields – and thereby keeping the enemy far away from the road at all times.

Instead, our generals have for years stuck with the same old bad patrolling plan and so the enemy just watches the road and after one patrol has passed and before the next patrol arrives, the enemy times it correctly to sneak up to the road and lay their road-side bombs.

The enemy can sneak up to the road so easily because they don’t have to cross a minefield, they don’t have to penetrate barbed wire and there isn’t guard posts with guards with machine guns watching over the land either side of the road 24/7, defending the approaches to the road the whole length of the road.

Then the next patrol or some other vehicle later on comes along the road and gets blown up by the road-side bomb we failed to stop the enemy planting in the first place.

BBC: Afghanistan roadside bomb kills three British soldiers

Three British soldiers have died in Afghanistan after their armoured vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb in Helmand, the Ministry of Defence said.

The soldiers were from the Royal Highland Fusiliers, the 2nd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland. Next of kin have been informed.

Six other soldiers were also injured after the bomb blast on Tuesday.

The soldiers were travelling in the heavily armoured Mastiff vehicle on a routine patrol in the district of Nahr-e Saraj when the blast happened.

Here’s what my solution to create a secure perimeter for the supply roads might look like.

Can you see how that brings the road “inside the wire”? That’s a plan that could work to keep the main highways safe to use.

Mine is not a plan for the small side-roads far away from the highways. We don’t have to use these side-roads to supply our main bases. We should only have our main bases next to the main supply roads. We should not have isolated bases which are difficult to supply. We need to abandon those isolated bases in bandit territory and fight the enemy there using air-power, aerial bombing, drones, attack helicopters, airborne raids and so on. There’s no need to drive to those out-of-the-way hideouts the enemy has.

The Qunt’s Referendum Shite in Scotland forum

Previewing the forum description of The Qunt’s Referendum Shite in Scotland forum 

Should Scotland be an independent country? Discuss the royalist SNP’s referendum, planned for September 18, 2014.

Salmond’s shite white paper of 2009 dictated that however Scots vote in this referendum, YES or NO, the abusive misrule of the judges and ministers of the Cunt Queen Elizabeth (the Qunt) is to carry on regardless.

The Queen’s YES-Scotland and Better-Together contemptible media campaigns both seek support for independent Queen’s kingdoms (Scotland or the UK) but with dependent, subjugated peoples.

Discuss how we can secure real national independence by establishing republics and electing presidents to replace the monarchy.
