The simple truth is that I cannot continue to serve as Foreign Minister if I do not have Prime Minister Gillard's support.

I therefore believe the only honourable thing and the only honourable course of action is for me to resign, and I do so with a genuinely heavy heart and after much personal reflection.

There are other factors, too, that I have had to take into consideration today. The truth is that the Australian people regard this whole affair as little better than a soap opera, and they are right. And under current circumstances, I won't be part of it.

It is also, I believe, a distraction from the real business of government.

Didn't get the memo? Hillary Clinton wears green in G20 'family photo' while everyone else wears white | Mail Online

It is the fear of every party guest, turning up in an outfit not suited to the dress code. And unfortunately for Hillary Clinton, her slip up was witnessed by top government officials from across the globe. Wearing a lime green shirt, the Secretary of State was placed in the middle of the foreign ministers - all dressed in crisp white shirts - for a G20 'family photo' in Los Cabos, Mexico.

But rather than adding a red face to the fashion faux pas, Clinton appeared to be tickled by her choice of outfit, laughing with her fellow leaders as the photographer snapped away.

And perhaps Clinton's colourful choice was intended to make an impact on the special occasion - she is in Mexico for the first G20 Ministers of Foreign Affairs informal meeting.

"I have a letter from Mr Riyadi himself, who tells me .... that he has been robbed of all his money... "Each of the $5 trillion payments that came in has been acknowledged and receipted by senior executives at HSBC and again receipted by senior executives at the Royal Bank of Scotland... "The money was first said to have come from the Riyadi account to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and from there it was passed to JP Morgan Chase in New York for onward transit to London..." According to Lord Sassoon, only 1,507 tonnes of gold has been mined in the history of the world, so you cannot have 750,000 tonnes. "Today, I have this quite frightening piece of paper ... from the general audit office of the Federal Reserve in Washington - the real Federal Reserve-and its audit... "It has on it some 20 banks listed to which $16.115 trillion is outstanding in loans... "Barclays Bank has $868 billion of loan, and the Royal Bank of Scotland has $541 billion..." (This money could earn huge amounts of interest) "One has to ask a question, because they could have earned back in three weeks their entire indebtedness and could pay off the taxpayers of Britain. Why have they not done so... "Most extraordinarily, not a penny of interest does the Federal Bank of New York want paid on that vast amount, $16 trillion... "The compound interest on that sum is huge. If it is genuine, a vast profit is being made on this money somewhere... "Either we have a huge amount of tax uncollected on profits made or we have a vast amount of money festering away in the European banking system which is not real money, in which case we need to take it back. I ask for an investigation and for noble Lords to support my plea."

New Norway mass vaccinations planned.

Nevertheless, Institute of Public Health (FHI) director Geir Stene-Larsen told NRK, "With this, we are preparing ourselves for a possible new pandemic."

The move comes amongst criticism and reports of 93 compensation applications so far following the state-run Pandemrix vaccination programme.

Is There Herbicide in Your Urine? | Disinformation

According to an article in German in the Ithaka Journal, a German university study has found significant concentrations of glyphosate in the urine samples of city dwellers. The analysis of the urine samples apparently found that all had concentrations of glyphosate at 5 to 20-fold the limit for drinking water. As well as being used increasingly widely in food production, glyphosate-based weedkillers often also get sprayed onto railway lines, urban pavements and roadsides (

Disturbingly, the Ithaka Journal reports (in our translation), "The address of the university labs, which did the research, the data and the evaluation of the research method is known to the editors. Because of significant pressure by agrochemical representatives and the fear that the work of the lab could be influenced, the complete analytical data will only be published in the course of this year."
