British magazine publishes death threat vs. LaRouche  

by Mark Burdman

In the Aug. 5 issue of a widely circulated British women’s magazine, Take A Break, the magazine featured a savage attack on Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr., currently the third of the three presently leading candidates for the Democratic Party’s Y2000 U.S. Presidential nomination. The item was slugged prominently Shut This Man’s Mouth! The argument is that LaRouche’s growing influence inside the U.S.A. and around the world, and the threat he represents as a Presidential candidate, represents a serious threat to the British monarchy itself. The magazine argues, that since all earlier efforts to silence LaRouche have failed, this time all efforts must be made by Prime Minister Blair and the monarchy, to Shut His Mouth at last. Experts view this attack as reflecting a serious threat to the life of that U.S. Presidential candidate.
