John Ward – UK Economic Slump : A Recession Of Olympic Proportions – 25 July 2012

1-2-3, GDP, tell me please, what is Plan B?

Although the full ONS data aren’t live until 9.30 am BST today, there has as usual been Much-Leaking-in-the-Cabinet. Allegedly the numbers will show a 0.2% negative for GDP in Q2 2012. That follows 0.3% in Q1, and 0.4% in 2011 Q4. Do three Qs of negatives make a QE3? Not as far as the MPC’s vote last week is concerned, but then nobody has the answer to that equation.

Baron Green of Hurstpierpoint

How Green took specific interest in Bermuda, Mexico & Switzerland

Just when we thought the ethical limbo dancing of the banks couldn’t get any lower, up popped HSBC to agree a ‘no contest’ against charges of money laundering for Mexican drug lords and Iranian bombers. And just when you thought Camerlot surely couldn’t fit another implicated Minister into the frame, up pops Stephen Green – Baron Green of Hurstpierpoint, David Cameron’s Minister of Trade & Investment across both the Business and Foreign Office ministries.

John Ward – Olympic Security Madness : Revealed – Mohammed Bari’s Selective Defence Of Major Suspected Terrorist. How Senior Locog director And Dissembler Bari Misrepresents The Evidence Of Spying, Money Laundering And Internet Incitement Against Babar Ahmad – 16 July 2012

Astonishing silence of the UK MSM in this regard

Babar Ahmad

Leader of the notorious East London Mosque Dr Mohammed Bari is always vocal on the subject of British injustice. He has defended long-held terror suspect Babar Ahmad and opposed his extradition to the US in every medium that will entertain his one-sided accounts. Ahmad has been held for seven years without trial: but Bari and his ilk always edit out the powerful evidence against Ahmad….and why he languishes in a British prison. The Slog details it in full.

Cost of London Olympics rapidly approaching sum total of Osborne’s austerity savings

I suppose, in the light of French supplier EDF bunging all that sponsorship money our way, the Olympics organisers felt it was vital  to choose a British company to handle security for the Olympic Games….Britain having more snoopy security cameras than anywhere else in the world. Continue reading

ImageWashington Post calls out Deputy BoE Governor

Tucker…pants on fire have been edited out to protect the guilty.

The Post’s lead story this morning asserts as follows:

‘While president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Timothy F. Geithner pressed British regulators to reform the way a critical global benchmark called the London interbank offered rate, or Libor, is calculated, according to a June 1, 2008, e-mail obtained by The Washington Post.

(picture of John Ward AKA The Slog)

The London Daily Telegraph’s new young City whistle-blower Thomas Pascoe has encouraged the longstanding band of gold manipulation spotters by writing this piece today. It is pretty much a vindication of what The Slog’s been saying for six years: that gold sales, auditing, location, price, market size and mining statistics are a load of old bollocks – a feast that moves in mysterious ways to suit the Sovereign agenda of the hour.
