Greetings ligali peeps,

It is now quite clear to me that NEO LABOUR is following the NEW CONS of the US, in that they are using tags to disguise the fact that they are both Zionist Facist parties, which use the power of money to buy political influence and votes.

We have seen in the US the complete hijacking of the US senate, by these Zionists, with the artful watchdog AIPAC at hand to make sure all goes running smoothly in the interest of Israel and the Zionists at the expense of the American citizenry.

Computerised voting machines confirm their candidates are elected and BLAIR, under the guiding hand of Lord Levy and Goldsmith are making sure, he buys his boys and gals into the thus far, non favourable House of Lords, in which we have seen knock back Blair's despotic demands.

Make no mistake Blair is a dictator, however not of the Hitler mould, as Hitler WAS NOT ABOUT TO SUBDGATE HIS PEOPLE AT THE BEHEST OF THE ZIONIST WHIMS, hence he had to go.

Blair is their boy, as is Brown and i personally do not see Blair going anywhere, name a dictator who does?

Maybe it's just me, who thinks that we are going to have another Blair/Israeli concocted terrorist attack on the UK citizenry, thus forcing Blair to declare that, under the unforseen circumstances he has to stay and fight the menace of the illusory terrorism.

WHEN THE CITIZENRY ALLOW THEIR ELECTED TURN THEIR BACKS ON THEM, IN FAVOUR OF PEOPLE DONATING FUNDS FOR POSITIONS OF POWER AND DO NOT CALL FOR A CESSATION OF THE UNELECTED, NAMELY QUANGO'S (QUASI AUTONOMOUS NATIONAL GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATION), THE PUBLIC EFFECTIVELY DEMAND FOR SLAVERY AND THEIR LONGED FOR FEUDAL MASTERS RETURN!

Big up Marcus Garvey Lives, for keeping an eye on the beasts and beastess's of this world

Very British Corruption, 22 Jan 2002
Two years ago, the european Union realised [the corruption that] was happening in Britain and the other european countries experimenting with PFI. In May 2000 the commission published a draft “consolidated procurement directive”, which would ban the selection of preferred bidders before a contract has been developed. Since then, the British government has been campaigning to continue defrauding the British taxpayer and sustaining this very British form of corruption.

Police held in corruption probe , 10 Nov, 2006
Five policemen have been arrested over allegations they sold contraband alcohol and cigarettes.
The Metropolitan Police officers have also been held on suspicion of money laundering, evasion of liability and criminal misconduct in office. The men, an inspector, a sergeant, a detective constable and two constables, were arrested following dawn raids at their homes on Tuesday. Four members of the public from north London have also been arrested. Scotland Yard's anti-corruption unit is investigating allegations bootleg alcohol and cigarettes from abroad were sold to the public and in police clubs and canteens.

Police corruption 'risked lives' , 26 October 2006
For corrupt former trainee detective Charles Fletcher, the information he passed on bought him a wardrobe full of designer clothes.
But the tips he gave suspected criminals in Nottinghamshire led to him being jailed for seven years - and may have put dozens of his fellow police officers in grave danger. Pcs Charles Fletcher, 25, pleaded guilty to charges of conspiring to commit misconduct in a public office at Birmingham Crown Court. Fletcher admitted passing on top secret information on different cases, including the inquiry into murdered jeweller Marian Bates, who was shot dead in her shop in Arnold in 2003

Toyin Says: On BBC Question Time this week Jan Berry of the anti-African Police Federation called for the death penalty in Britain when the victim is a police officer. If we’re going to consider special treatment for all law enforcement (sic) officers then shouldn’t we consider lynching corrupt officers who defraud the public and those responsible for the deaths of innocent people in custody? What about their superiors who wilfully protect them? What about the politicians who install them?

The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) has widened its investigation into corruption allegations at UK defence giant BAE Systems.

Together with Ministry of Defence Police, the SFO raided three business addresses and a home earlier this week.

The SFO said the raids were not related to existing inquiries into BAE defence contracts in Romania and Saudi Arabia.

It is already investigating claims that BAE made secret payments to cement arms deals with those countries.

"As part of an ongoing investigation by the Serious Fraud Office and Ministry of Defence Police into suspected corruption relating to defence contracts where BAE Systems is the prime contractor, four premises were searched on 17 October," an SFO spokesman has said.

The raids targeted a business and a home address in London and two businesses in Berkshire, one of which was reported to be that of Breco Services.

African connection

One of that company's directors is John Bredenkamp, a white Zimbabwean tycoon living in Britain with an estimated fortune of £700m.

In 2002, a United Nations report described him as a major arms dealer to African countries including the Democratic Republic of Congo and Zimbabwe.

It also claimed that he had links with BAE Systems via his investment in South African company Aviation Consulting Services (ACS) - an arms trading company whose client list includes BAE.

The UN report claimed that ACS broke a UK and european arms embargo on Zimbabwe by supplying the country with BAE aircraft parts in early 2002.

A report in the Guardian newspaper has suggested that the SFO's interest in Mr Bredenkamp is related to commissions allegedly paid during the £1.6bn sale of BAE Hawk jets to South Africa in 2001.

Wider investigation

BAE refused to comment on whether it had had any business dealings with Mr Bredenkamp.

"The SFO enquiry is an ongoing process with which BAE Systems continues to co-operate fully. As this matter is an ongoing investigation we can make no further comment at this stage," a BAE statement said.

In 2002, the SFO began looking into allegations that BAE had operated a secret £60m fund to provide gifts for Saudi Arabian officials, which had helped cement up to £40bn worth of arms contracts known as al-Yamamah.

The SFO later expanded these investigations to include claims that millions of pounds had been paid in secret commissions to help with the sale of two former Royal Navy frigates to Romania.

The prime minister had already said that he did not want "ill-feeling" with the Saudi regime. Des Browne, the defence secretary, chimed in with the same message. A well-orchestrated PR campaign, involving BAE's own lobbyists, veteran fixer Tim Bell and the BAE-dominated "defence exports services organisation" at the MoD, was already setting up a chorus that the latest Saudi arms contract, for 72 Typhoon aircraft was in danger, threatening up to 100,000 jobs.


Newspapers repeated these scare stories uncritically, although a York University study says the deal only involves 5,000 British jobs. Trade unionists and MPs with BAE factories in their constituency were briefed to complain to Downing Street about the alleged threat.

Tory MP Michael Jack said that he spoke out after Mike Turner, the BAE chief executive, warned in the Financial Times that negotiations over the fighter jet deal were stalled. "It was the first time he had done that. It was a serious matter. I speak regularly to BAE." His Fylde constituency includes 3,000 Eurofighter
workers.

Fraud 'costing UK £13.9bn a year'
Fraud is costing the UK at least £13.9 billion a year, a specially-commissioned police report has revealed.
When the estimated losses from income tax fraud, under-reporting and fraudulent applications for european Union grants are added, the true cost of fraud rises to £20 billion. This is equivalent to a loss of £330 to every man, woman and child in the country every year, according to the official figures.

The report, which is set to be presented to MPs, was specially commissioned by the
Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo). It represents the first major official attempt to put a figure on the total cost of fraud to the UK economy and took a year to produce.
The £13.9 billion figure is a "conservative" estimate of the overall loss to the UK through fraud, the report says.
The biggest losses - some £6.4 billion a year - are borne by the public sector. Fraud costs the financial services industry - banks and insurance companies - £1 billion, while the cost to business overall is almost £4 billion.
Individuals are losing out to the tune of £2.75 million a year, according to the report. It costs another £1 billion a year to combat fraud and deal with the consequences of it.

Mike Bowron, Commissioner of City of London Police and Acpo's lead on economic crime, and the Attorney General Lord Goldsmith will attend a parliamentary breakfast to present the report's findings to MPs.

It was compiled by fraud expert and criminologist Professor Michael Levi of Cardiff University. He analysed key data drawn from global reports and national surveys to assess, as accurately as possible, the true economic cost of fraud in the UK.
Mr Bowron said: "Professor Levi and his team have conservatively estimated that in 2005 fraud cost the UK £13.9 billion. But this figure excludes some major areas of criminality, such as income tax and EU fraud, where statistics are simply not available. Adding estimates for these into the mix, it is likely that fraud represents a £20 billion annual loss to the UK.

"To put this figure into perspective, such losses would pay for an additional 200,000 police officers or save every man, woman and child £330.00 per year. It used to be said 'No-one walks down the street in fear of being embezzled.' Well increasingly they do."
