A powerful criminal syndicate with links to money laundering, assassinations and terrorism infiltrated the Bank of England (BoE), a damning new report has revealed.
The scandal was uncovered by BuzzFeed News on Thursday, following an investigation into how the UK’s criminal underworld penetrated the state’s central bank.
Northern Ireland’s police watchdog is investigating allegations that the IRA operative who planned the 1993 Shankhill Road bombing was an MI5 informant who gave intelligence that could have helped security forces stop the atrocity.
Nine civilians, including two children, were killed in the attack on a fish shop in Belfast’s loyalist heartland in 1993. The bombing became one of the most notorious atrocities of The Troubles, prompting a wave of sectarian revenge murders in its wake.
Privacy International, which has been engaged in legal challenges over GCHQ spying for the past few years, has obtained an oversight document as a result of its litigation. What they show is the agency’s broad hacking powers and the reluctance of its oversight to condone these actions.
The Commissioner of the Intelligence Services was slow to respond to hacking. Many of the concerns the Commissioner raised in his 2014 report [published July 2015] are the subject of PI’s legal complaint, including whether it is lawful to use broad “thematic warrants” to justify the hacking of people in the UK. The Commissioner questioned this practice in depth. He was concerned that current law “does not expressly allow for a class of authorisation”, and therefore the warrants were too broad. As a result, the Commissioner was worried that the Secretary of State was unable to properly assess whether the warrant authorised activity was necessary and proportionate. [ibid, p18] This means that GCHQ could get a warrant in the UK to hack the computer of everyone in Birmingham with little meaningful oversight.
An additional 2,000 spies will be hired at MI5, MI6 and GCHQ to fight those “who would destroy us and our values” in the wake of the Paris terror attacks, David Cameron has said.
The number of spies will rise by 15 per cent in what is expected to be the biggest expansion of the security services since the 7/7 terror attacks in London in July 2005.
For the London media 7/7 is ‘done and dusted’, but for guest author, Tony Gosling, who helped cover the IRA London bombing campaign for the BBC, nothing could be further from the truth.
31-minute video:Ten years after 7/7: 13 holes in government & media account of 2005 London Bombings:
Monday 6th July 2015 BRISTOL – At lunchtime of 7th July 2005 the Guardian’s Mark Honigsbaum was in the London Hilton Hotel opposite Edgware Road underground station uploading an audio report to the Guardian website. Mark had been talking to dazed and injured passengers as they emerged from the smoke and chaos below and listening back to the Guardian’s first report of the day is unsettling.
– Revolt In Athens: Syriza Central Committee Member Says “Leadership Strategy Has Failed Miserably” (ZeroHedge, Feb 23, 2015):
Not everybody is ignoring that fact that just days after the new Prime Minister promised the Greek population on prime time TV that the loathed bailout program wouldn’t be extended and that Greece would have a fresh start – i.e., the mandate it was elected on – one without austerity, Greece folded on virtually every demand, to the point where the European Commission may itself have drafted the “reform agreement“ that the Greek finance minister was said to have created.
One person who may be starting a splinter revolt within Syriza itself is Stathis Kouvelakis, a member of the central committee of the leftist organization, a teacher of political theory at King’s College, and the latest to demonstrate that the Syriza facade of cohesive acceptance of the past week’s “negotiations”, is starting to crumble.
The strategy of Syriza’s leadership has failed miserably. But it’s not too late to avert total defeat.
Let us begin with what should be indisputable: the Eurogroup agreement that the Greek government was dragged into on Friday amounts to a headlong retreat.
(Tomorrow I will post what Hugo Chavez had to say about this.)
More from Barrie Trower:
Former MI5 agent Barrie Trower is a physicist who worked for British intelligence. There he got secret knowledge about the huge danger of electro smog=scalar waves and microwave radiation in our cell phone and Wi-Fi technology. He reveals how intelligence agencies misuse microwaves to influence people’s bodies, even the brain. They can induce pain everywhere in the body and illness, even heart attacks and every form of cancer. They can control your mind by reading your thoughts, changing them, spying on your memory, change or erase it. They can remote control a human totally without the targeted individual knowing about it. People can be programmed to be a living video camera, killing- or sex-machine.
It is easy to let people hear voices in their skulls. V2K is not a mental illness but the result of modern technology.
It has long been alleged that the systematic abuse of children took place in the Kincora home at the hands of a paedophile ring thought to be linked to MI5.
It has also been claimed that MI5 blocked police investigations into the abuse, who reportedly used the information of child abuse to blackmail, manipulate and coerce members of the establishment who were committing the abuse.
