The chicken has come home to roost
Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) has appointed (or had appointed to
it) its second Director and Deputy Keeper of the Records of Northern Ireland
to have no archives or records background, setting a trend. Although a similar
situation has existed at the UK National Archives (formerly the Public Record
Office) with the appointments of Sarah Tyacke or Natalie Ceeney, the same trend
has been less evident outside London. The appointment of Ms. Ceeney led to
journalist and historian Max Hastings and others decrying the development,
as we reported in a previous blog post. The PRONI appointment has elicited a
response from John Chambers, Chief Executive of the Archives and Records Association,
which covers the UK and Republic of Ireland.
has corresponded with the minister concerned and received no reply. The main
ground for the concern is that the relevant legislation, the Public Records Act(Northern Ireland) 1923
“states clearly that the Deputy Keeper should be ‘a fit person duly
qualified by his knowledge of records’, that is to say someone with
appropriate, credible and formal experience of the sector who can make
judgements based on best professional practice and established standards and
conventions” (quoting Chambers’ letter).
concern about Maeve Walls’ background is compounded by the appointment having
taken place surreptitiously, apparently without a competitive selection
has an insight into what might be happening at PRONI. In view of the fact Ms
Walls is a Fulbright scholar and Fulbright is partnered with Common Purpose (CP), it is reasonable to suppose there is a CP involvement. CP is a British based educational charity supported by the UK government
whose “graduates” are embedded in public and private sector organisations to
further the process of establishing socialist world dictatorship, also known as the New World Order (NWO). This process is necessarily one that starts in a national context. Lenin first laid down this principle in what he termed the National Revolutionary Subversion Process which is to say, the hollowing out of the western democracies from within. The process is best described by the famous Italian Communist Antonio Gramsci, as reported in an earlier post.
Thus this development looks like a drastic attempt to keep the NWO
project culturally on track. Archives are again being targeted as a
counter-revolutionary cultural threat to the NWO for which Northern Ireland has been
something of a proving ground. General John de Chastelain, the NATO
general brought in to assist with the NI peace process, supposedly from a
non-partisan Canadian background in fact represented not only NATO but also the federal North American
Union, the nascent superstate combining the USA, Canada and Mexico. General Chastelain
is a director of the Forum of Federations, whose main aim seems to be the
Balkanisation of existing federal regimes and the creation of new enlarged
federations (like the EU and NAU) as stepping stones to world government…i.e.
world dictatorship. In NI he thus played an important role in the
process of devolution or Balkanisation in the UK.
General John de Chastelain
revelations have also shown that MI5 and MI6 were involved in the running of
the IRA campaign, presumably as a precursor to NI’s part of the Balkanisation
of the UK. If Martin McGuinness (MI6 codename “fisherman”) and Jerry Adams were
working for British Intelligence it would help explain the NATO involvement in
NI and the readiness of royalty to meet both men at the conclusion of the
James of Blackheath confirmed the extent of the government’s management of the
IRA and its funding arrangements in a speech in the House of Lords,
while the EU’s control of financial institutions extends to undermining
attempts to deal with members of the NI judiciary who allegedly collude in fraud.
asked our principal spokesman, Benedict Crumplethorne, for an analysis of the corruption of democratic accountability in NI.
appointment echoes the appointment of Natalie Ceeney, a former employee of
McKinsey, the controversial and secretive global
consultancy firm known as the Jesuits of Capitalism, specialising in the
pharmaceutical and retail sectors, who before that managed clinical services in
the National Health Service. She has described herself as a "general manager". We reported on this in a previous blog.
This looks like a similar development but it’s more than just another
manifestation of the cult of managerialism.
is that Ms. Walls’ appointment is a continuation of the process of embedding
CP change agents in the civil service in readiness for the next planned
constitutional changes. Following the EU referendum in which NI voted remain,
federalists no doubt believe NI is ready for positioning for attachment to the
Republic and remaining in the EU. We can possibly also predict a ramping up of
the process of the cultural attack on archives we have reported on elsewhere
over the last few years, e.g. Ruskin College, Oxford.
Our main fear in SQA is that the Malvine Project and the mounting hostility
to archives and archivists heralds the destruction of archival collections, perhaps by
digitising them, using increasing storage challenges as a pretext for no longer
preserving original archival material post digitisation. The Malvine Project
seeks the same outcome but by more subtle means, by excluding the conservation
and repair of archives unless they support federal projects including European
integration, thereby making them less likely to survive as counter
revolutionary cultural evidence.
archives constitute evidence, which is why we keep them. But this evidence can
be inconvenient because retrospection and historical evidence can be used
against new political systems, so when radical change comes archives are
necessarily destroyed as counter revolutionary. Our readership may well say
they see no justification for this but of course we are dealing with what David
Icke calls the “totalitarian tiptoe” approach.
notwithstanding, it is refreshing to see ARA doing something, in marked
contrast to the old Society of Archivists. Is it a vain hope that one day it might be a
legal requirement for such office holders to be qualified, professional
Benedict for his insights.
