GANGSTERS' LINKS TO POLITICIANS


Jim Murphy

In Italy, the famous P2 masonic lodge was a link between the mafia and the government.

The UK Labour Party would appear to have links to gangsters.

Government minister Jim Murphy of the Labour party has a problem - reportedly a gangster attended his election fundraiser

Lewis Rodden is a convicted gangster.

According to a report in the Sunday Herald, 11 April 2010, Lewis Rodden appeared at a Labour Party election fundraiser for Jim Murphy, who is Gordon Brown's Secretary of State for Scotland.

At the fundraiser, former defence secretary John Reid, of the Labour party, was the keynote speaker.

John Reid's son married the daughter of notorious gangster Ronnie Campbell. (Home Secretary Reid's father-in-law arrested in £280000 drugs bust ...)

Labour councillor and Strathclyde (Glasgow) Police Authority member Betty Cunningham is 'on first-name terms' with Lewis Rodden.

In 2002, drug dealer Justin McAlroy attended one of the Scottish Labour party's Red Rose dinners.

McAlroy, who was shot dead within days of attending the event, was yards away from former First Minister Jack McConnell and John Reid.

Reportedly, Jack McConnell's wife's department, and Jack McConnell's party organisation in Glasgow, gave Eddie Lyons, an alleged 'gangster', £1.4m in public funds over 10 years to run a community centre used by children.

In early 2010, the Labour Party's Steven Purcell, who quit as leader of Glasgow City Council, had his name linked to gangsters, such as the Iceman. (POLITICIANS AND DRUGS; PURCELL AND THE ICEMAN)

Michael Howard, who is close to David Cameron.

Michael Howard is a top UK politician.

He was once the leader of the Conservative Party.

He is Jewish.

The family name Hecht was anglicised to Howard.[1]

1. There are allegations that a criminal was released from prison after paying a bribe to one of Michael Howard's relatives.

"Career criminal John Haase told a Labour MP that he was released from prison early after making the payment via one of Mr Howard's relatives."

Baybasin

2. The Guardian, 28 March 2006, had an excellent story about heroin.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/drugs/Story/0,,1741038,00.html

Michael Howard was home secretary at the time when the Baybasins came to the UK.

According to the Guardian, members of an international crime gang were allowed to come to Britain because their leader had links to Customs & Excise.

The evidence for this came out at an immigration appeals tribunal.

The Baybasin Cartel, a Kurdish gang, controlled up to 90% of the heroin which entered the UK.

Its bosses settled in the UK in the mid-1990s.

Gang members were involved in protection rackets and extortion in the UK, and were linked to up to 25 murders.

The gang's members were allowed to move from Turkey to London, allegedly after their leader, Huseyin Baybasin, agreed to tell Customs investigators what he knew about the involvement of senior Turkish politicians and officials in the international heroin trade.

Reportedly, Baybasin was encouraged by Customs to come to the UK and arrived via Gibraltar in either late 1994 or early 1995.

He first met Customs officers in a hotel near Tower Bridge, London.

Having come to the UK, the Baybasin Cartel ran their vast drug trafficking operation from London.

They and their relatives persuaded a number of politicians to support their attempts to obtain British travel documents.

Among those who agreed to help was Tony McNulty, a former immigration minister, who wrote a number of letters on behalf of Baybasin's wife after her husband was arrested in the Netherlands.

Baybasin, 49, is now serving a life sentence in a Dutch jail.

His brother, Abdullah, 45, who took the helm after his conviction, has now been convicted of conspiracy to supply heroin.

It was at Abdullah Baybasin's asylum hearings that the alleged deal with Customs & Excise was disclosed.

Abdullah was given indefinite leave to remain in the UK last year.

Several other relatives also remain in the UK.

Michael Howard was home secretary at the time when the Baybasins came to the UK. 3. Why did Howard release two dangerous gangsters?

http://observer.guardian.co.uk/politics/story/0,6903,1411777,00.html

Police are investigating Michael Howard's role in a royal pardon for two of Liverpool's most dangerous gangsters, John Haase and Paul Bennett, who were granted a royal pardon in July 1996 on Howard's orders.

The decision came 11 months into 18-year sentences.

The Metropolitan police is about to launch an investigation into the 'circumstances leading up to the granting of a royal pardon for these individuals'.

Was the Home Secretary duped into believing Haase and Bennett had provided vital information about arms caches across Liverpool, arms they had arranged to be planted themselves?

Michael Howard's cousin, Simon Bakerman, is an associate of Haase.

Bakerman was released from prison on the day Howard became leader of the Conservative Party in November 2003.

Bakerman received a three-year sentence in 2002 for running an illegal factory making amphetamine and ketamine pills.

Haase claims that Bakerman received large sums of money from Haase before the pardon was granted, though even his lawyers admit there is no evidence of where this money ended up - if it was paid in the first place.

Where Heroin comes from

The arms caches were a set-up, planted on Haase's instructions from a mobile phone he had smuggled into prison.

Witnesses from within Haase's organisation now claim that bribes totalling £4.5 million were paid by criminals to officials involved with the case.

Haase and his associates have often been held responsible for bringing gun culture to the streets of Liverpool.

One former senior Customs officer said there had been suspicions well before the release of the two men that the arms caches were an elaborate scam.

Haase was rearrested in 1999 and sentenced to 13 years for money-laundering and supplying firearms to fellow gangsters.

He is serving his sentence, but continues to wield a powerful influence from his prison cell, not least through his continuing claims that bribes were paid to help obtain his royal pardon.

VOTE SNP - KEEP OUT THE BAD GUYS

Image from: Paul Waugh Blogs Evening Standard

Some politicians have a dark side.

In the UK, Stuart MacLennan, the Labour party candidate for Moray in Scotland, has made some Twitter postings (Scottish Sun).

He called House of Commons speaker John Bercow a "t**", Tory chief David Cameron a "t***" and Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg "a b******".

He described veteran Labour MP Diane Abbot as "a f****** idiot".

Labour really love Scotland! - Such High Quality Of Candidates?

In 2008, there was panic among the powers-that-be when the Scottish National Party won the by-election in Glasgow East, the Labour Party's third safest seat.

When it came to the by-election in Glenrothes, the powers-that-be were not asleep.

It looks like the GLENROTHES election WAS RIGGED.

The Scottish National Party (SNP) are ahead in Scotland, according to the latest poll of readers of the Sunday Post (April 2010). (more >>> )

SNP - 37.6%

Conservatives - 26%

Labour - 19%

Sunday Post readers may not be entirely typical.

However, on 8 April 2010, an Angus Reid Public Opinion poll in Scotland, showed SNP support up 9% and Labour support down 5%.

The anti-war SNP should be able to hold the balance of power in the London parliament, unless there is vote rigging and dirty tricks.

Labour's Blair and the Conservatives' Cameron - same policies on Afghanistan and Israel.

Big organisations are usually bad.

But it paid no tax.

Instead it got a tax benefit of $1.1 billion. (What The Top U.S. Companies Pay In Taxes)

When there are big governments, it's the little people who pay taxes.

Big governments do not defend the little people.




Small organisations are good.

Others that are usually listed include Finland, Ireland, Netherlands, Sweden, Canada.

In the USA there are too many big bad institutions, such as the Pentagon.

Are all the big parties pretty much the same?

In the UK there is to be a general election.

The best outcome will be a 'hung parliament' where neither of the big parties has a majority and the small parties have to be listened to.

Of the small UK parties, we do not like UKIP because it wants to increase spending on defence by 40%.

We do not like the Liberal Democrats because they want to keep the troops in Afghanistan.

We do like the Scottish and Welsh Nationalists who want to take the troops out of Afghanistan and who want to scrap Trident and ID cards.

Others worth considering are the Green party (anti war), Respect (wants troops out of Afghanistan), TUSC (anti war) and the Alliance for Democracy whose policy is 'whatever the public want, they get'.

Gordon Brown's Labour Party wants to keep Trident missiles, at a cost of around £100 billion. Brown plans bigger cuts than under Margaret Thatcher.

The Scottish National Party (SNP) pledge investment as they attack Labour 'cuts'

The SNP attack Labour for planning "deeper and tougher" cuts than under Margaret Thatcher's government.

The SNP, in power in Scotland, claims it is funding 500 times more houses for poor people than Labour did during their last four years in power in Scotland.

The SNP says the Labour Party's Alistair Darling has admitted that Labour's cuts will be 'deeper and tougher' than even those of Margaret Thatcher.

The SNP stood shoulder-to-shoulder with workers at drinks firm Diageo, when jobs were threatened.

EXPECT VOTE FRAUD IN THE COMING UK ELECTION?


We remember the US election day exit polls which showed that John Kerry won both the electoral and the popular vote, with Kerry getting 51% and Bush 48%.

Can you expect some vote fraud in the coming UK general election?

One constituency to watch is Dumfries and Galloway, in Scotland, which at present is held by the Labour Party's Russell Brown.

In the June 2009 Euro-Elections, the result in Dumfries and Galloway was:

Conservatives 12,239 votes

Scottish National Party 8,247

Labour 5,733

In May 2009, a poll for the Mail on Sunday (www.snpdoonhamers.org/.../2009-05) showed Scottish voting intentions, if there was to be a general election:

Scottish National Party – 43%

Labour – 27%

Conservatives – 11%

In 2001, the Labour MP for Dumfries and Galloway, Russell Brown, was 'caught breaking parliamentary rules' by claiming office expenses to which he was 'not entitled'. (Labour MP faces inquiry into office expenses - Telegraph). Brown supported the Iraq war, supports identity cards, supports government policy on post offices, supports the terrorism laws and supports Trident.

If Labour wins Dumfries and Galloway in the 2010 general election, then there is something fishy going on?

Labour is the party of war, poverty, deficits and corruption.

Labour has failed (The Sun Says: Labour's lost it The Sun News)

The Conservative Party's candidate for Dumfries, Peter Duncan, voted very strongly for the Iraq war.

The Conservatives only have one member of parliament in Scotland, because they are also the party of war and poverty.

Dumfries and Galloway has had members of parliament from the three main parties: Conservative, Scottish National Party (SNP) and Labour.

In 1974, SNP candidate George Thompson won Dumries and Galloway from the Conservatives. In 1979, Ian Lang took the seat back for the Conservatives.
In 1997, the SNP's Alasdair Morgan defeated the Conservative Ian Lang.
In 2001, pro-war Peter Duncan became the only Scottish Conservative MP by a margin of 74 votes from the SNP.
In 2005, boundary changes (and postal votes) helped Labour's pro-war Russell Brown win a surprise victory.


In 2010, the key questions are:

1. Will some Labour, Liberal Democrat and Green Party voters switch to the SNP, allowing the SNP to triumph?

2. Will there be election fraud, in order to defeat the SNP?


Russell Brown is the pro-war Labour candidate.
Peter Duncan is the pro-war Conservative candidate.
Andrew Wood is the sensible anti-war Scottish National Party candidate.

The Scottish National Party's Andrew Wood was born in Dumfries and has been a farmer and businessman. According to Andrew Wood, Labour is simply just the Tories in disguise. (Andrew Wood - SNP Westminster Candidate)

The SNP wants to dump Trident missiles in order to save £100 million.

The SNP wants the troops out of Afghanistan.

The SNP believes that "More Nats (SNP) means less cuts".

The SNP believes that Labour's forthcoming spending cuts would mean an £800 million cut for Scotland.

The SNP says it will use its votes to protect Scotland from the coming cuts.

The Conservative Party's George Osborne has already indicated the Conservatives would not chuck out the Scottish parliament's recently passed budget exempting Scotland from the kind of cuts and job losses the rest of the country may see. (Election 2010 party guides: SNP )


Let's look back to the UK general Election of 2005.

Back in 2005, a Channel 4 TV Dispatches programme revealed how Tony Blair's Labour Party faked grassroots support during the General Election.

An undercover Channel 4 reporter, Jenny Kleeman, showed how:

1. Fake letters were sent to local newspapers to show support for Labour’s achievements.

2. Labour activists posed as 'local people' to greet Blair on the campaign trail.

According to The Times, in 2005, : "A QUARTER of the police forces across Britain are investigating last week’s elections in a purge on fraud and malpractice."

According to the Scotsman there are claims that a Labour Party activist in Birmingham kept a ballot box at his home the night before polls opened.

The activist's daughter was a presiding officer for one polling station.

In 1974, Labour's Harold Wilson won 39% of the vote and had a majority of only 3 seats.

In 2005, Labour's Tony Blair won 35% of the vote and had a majority of 67 seats.

According to Robin Cook, former UK Foreign Secretary, a party can normally expect to lose an election if it gets only 36% of the vote.

In 2005, Blair lost lots of not very marginal seats, but managed to hold on to some of the most marginal.

Nationally, Labour saw a 6% drop in their share of the vote.

In the 25 most marginal Labour-Lib Dem seats, the Liberal Democrats saw an average 6.7% increase in their share of the vote.


There are no obvious signs of vote fraud in Leeds North West, which was not considered particularly marginal, but which was captured by the Liberal Democrats:

Leeds North West

Liberal Democrat 16,612 votes. 37.2% of the vote. +10.3% since the last election..

Labour 14,735 votes. 33.0% of the votes. -8.9% since the last election.

There are no obvious signs of vote fraud in:

Solihull - not considered very marginal, but captured by the Liberal Democrats.

Liberal Democrat 20,896 votes. 39.9% share of the vote. +13.9% since the last election

Conservative 20,617 votes. 39.4% share of the vote. -6.0%

Labour 8,058 15.4% -10.2%

There are no obvious signs of vote fraud in:

Na h-Eileanan an Iar (The Western Isles where people are generally very honest)

SNP 6,213 votes. 44.9% of the votes. +8.0%

Labour 4,772 votes. 34.5% of the votes. -10.5%


In the constituencies which were most marginal, the swing against Labour was smaller than might be expected.

This could be due to a variety of factors, including:

(1) Extra effort by the Labour candidate and his party organisation
(2) tactical voting
(3) possible vote fraud.


In the marginal constituency of Aberdeen South, an investigation was begun into postal voting.

Aberdeen South - marginal

Labour 15,272 votes. 36.7% share of the vote. -1.3%

Liberal Democrat 13,924 votes. 33.5% share of the vote. +4.9%

Aberdeen North - not marginal

Labour 15,557 42.5 -6.8

Liberal Democrat 8,762 23.9 +11.7

Why was the Labour vote down only 1.3% in Aberdeen South, while the Labour vote was down 6.8% in Aberdeen North?

Why was the Liberal vote up only 4.9% in Aberdeen South, while the Liberal vote was up 11.7% in Aberdeen North?



Senior members of the Asian community have been accused of attempting to organise a postal vote racket in Leicester.

Parmjit Singh Gill, the Liberal Democrat MP for Leicester South in the last parliament, believes constituents were put under pressure to register for a postal vote, and then instructed who to vote for.

Leicester South was won by the Liberal Democrats in a previous bi-election.

In the 2005 General Election:
Labour 16,688
Liberal Democrat 12,971

~~~

Dumfries and Galloway - very marginal

Labour 20,924 votes. 41.1% share of the vote. +8.7% since the last election.

Conservative 18,002 35.4 +3.3

Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale - thought to be a relatively safe Labour seat

Conservative 16,141 36.2 +11.4

Labour 14,403 32.3 -4.6

~~~~~

According to the BBC, 10 May 2005, Police in Stoke-on-Trent are investigating claims that postal votes may have been tampered with. The returning officer related that 43 papers for Stoke North arrived together and the declaration of identity had been removed from each.

Stoke on Trent North
Labour 16,191 votes -5.4%
Conservative 6,155 votes +1.2%
Liberal Democrat 4,561 votes +2.9%

Which of the following show big swings against Labour?

Which result stands out as very different?

Birmingham Ladywood
Labour 17,262 votes -17.0%
Liberal Democrat 10,461 votes +23.3%

Birmingham Hodge Hill

"108 Brick Lane: is tenanted, I understand by Mr (Abdul) Salique, a well-known New Labour supporter. It is clear from our investigation that the 12 people registered on the roll do not live there, while Mr Salique claims that he and his family are resident. This is palpably untrue.

POLITICIANS AND DRUGS; PURCELL AND THE ICEMAN

Labour's Purcell

Gay Roman Catholic Steven Purcell, a key figure in Gordon Brown's Labour party, took cocaine with a dealer he met in The Boundary bar, an alleged gangland pub in Yoker, Glasgow.

(The Scottish National Party is playing the 'Purcell card'.)

The pub is run by Kelly Bryce.

Kelly's brother Jamie makes regular jail visits to crimelord Jamie "The Iceman" Stevenson (Stabbing victim's feud.)

Stevenson has been a suspect in three gangland murders and is regarded as one of the most cunning and ruthless crooks ever to rule Scotland's underworld. (Notorious Scots gangster Jamie 'The Iceman' Stevenson.)

Kelly's family has links to violence and drugs.

In 2009, Kelly's brother Jamie Bryce was part of a 'gang' convicted of an assault at Glasgow's Byblos nightclub.

Jamie Bryce and millionaire boxing tycoon Barry Hughes were convicted of assaulting Christopher Boyle with a metal pole. (Former council chief Steven Purcell's cocaine party with dealers)

Boyle was punched, kicked and stamped on before being hit with a metal pole and stabbed.

Boyle suffered suffered cuts up to 10 inches long to his face and stomach. (Tycoon who attacked man with metal pole avoids jail - Herald ...)

Barry Hughes and Jamie Bryce were told to carry out 150 hours of community service for their part in the attack.

Boyle is a friend of convicted bank robber Ian "Blink" McDonald and killer Tony McGurn, jailed for stabbing a nightclub steward to death in 1991. (Stabbing victim's feud with boxing promoter Barry Hughes - The ...)

Reportedly, Purcell, "invited two dealers into his flat for a party." (Former council chief Steven Purcell's cocaine party with dealers ...)

Steven Purcell was once thought of as a future leader of the Scottish Labour party.

On 5 March 2010, Purcell fled from Scotland to Australia. This was just hours after his teenage friend, Danus McKinlay, was found dying outside the City Chambers building.

Purcell's ex-wife, Katrina Murray, is the Labour candidate in Dundee East. (General Election 2010: The seats where battle will be lost and won ...)

Labour's John Reid

A number of top Labour party people have links to drugs.

John Reid was UK Home Secretary and UK Defence Secretary.

Cannabis was found at John Reid's home

According to Dean Nelson, editor Scottish edition of the Sunday Times, John Reid "is part of the Lanarkshire West Coast Labour mafia.

"It's not about... making life better for the working class.

"It's about looking after yourself and your mates and not being accountable to anyone." - Dean Nelson, editor Scottish edition of the Sunday Times.

During the 1990s Bosnian War, John Reid became friends with indicted war-criminal Radovan Karadzic. Reid has admitted that he spent three days at a luxury Geneva lakeside hotel as a guest of Karadzic in 1993. (http://www.guardian.co.uk/l)

John Reid's son Mark is married to the daughter of Ronnie Campbell who reportedly has links to crime.

According to the Sunday Mail, 9/4/2005 (Sunday Mail (Glasgow, Scotland): Fugitive and the minister ...):

"GRIM-FACED Defence Secretary John Reid shared centre stage at his son's wedding yesterday - with a villain wanted by police.

"Tony Blair's most trusted minister and fugitive Ronnie Campbell - the father of the bride - stood side by side on the steps of Westminster Cathedral.

"The Sunday Mail can reveal a warrant was issued for the arrest of Campbell, 47, on Monday after a violent incident involving a woman.

"Campbell, who sported a gold cravat and kilt, was the target of a recent gangland hit."

Labour's Jack McConnell

Jack McConnell was Scotland's First Minister and part of Blair's Labour Party.

Jack McConnell's wife, Bridget, is head of the Culture and Leisure Department of Scotland’s biggest local authority.

Reportedly, Jack McConnell's wife's department, and Jack McConnell's party organisation in Glasgow, gave Eddie Lyons, an alleged 'gangster', £1.4m in public funds over 10 years to run a community centre used by children.

Local people asked that Eddie Lyons be sacked as co-ordinator of Chirnsyde Community Initiative in Milton, north Glasgow.

Reportedly the Lyons’s family was involved in a 'war' with another group of alleged 'gangsters'.

At least 11 people have been shot since 2003 as a result of this 'war'.

In December 2006, the community centre was closed when Lyons’s nephew Michael was shot dead and his son Stephen and another man were critically injured.

In 2001 Eddie Lyons, his sons Stephen and Eddie junior, his brother Johnny and a friend called Paul McGuiness were charged with the attempted murder of Thomas McDonnell, who was attacked outside the community centre.

£63,000 was confiscated from Eddie Lyons’s home by police investigating alleged drug dealing.

In 2003, local parents were complaining that the council was forcing them to send their children to after-school fitness classes at Chirnsyde.

Local people 'watched the local hood handed taxpayers money, and official endorsement from Scotland’s first lady'. (Joan McAlpine: This is a nasty stink you cannot just ignore, Jack)


'Drug baron Justin McAlroy was gunned down on his driveway in Glasgow's Cambuslang only six days after wining and dining Labour VIPs Jack McConnell and John Reid at a dinner to raise funds for the party in 2002.' (New evidence casts shadow of doubt over conviction in notorious ...)

The following is taken from: http://www.wsws.org/news/1998/sep1998/scot-s17.shtml

"The Labour Party in Scotland has had an effective majority for decades through its control of the local authorities.

"During this time it has spawned a distinct social layer who control billions of pounds in revenue, awarding building and planning contracts, administering services...

"The Scotsman newspaper ran several articles on Ferguslie Park Community Business Holdings (FCBH), in Paisley.

"This scheme, established in the 1980s in the working class area of Ferguslie Park, was supposedly aimed at building 'community' businesses as a means of tackling unemployment.

"The Scotsman reported that at least part of the FCBH ...had fallen under the control of Paisley's drug gangs and was being used to launder money.

"Glasgow's Lord Provost, Patrick Lally, only recently successfully prevented Labour's attempt to expel him from office following allegations of corruption.

"Also in Glasgow, millionaire Labour MP, Mohammed Sarwar, has been suspended and faces legal action for allegedly attempting to bribe political opponents."

Moira Anderson.

11-year-old Moira Anderson was last seen boarding a bus in Coatbridge, near Glasgow, Scotland, in 1957.

She was on her way to the shops to buy a box of chocolates for her mum’s birthday.

According to The Sunday Times (Pressure on police to release paedophile dossier), 23 April 2006, Strathclyde Police have a dossier listing members of a child-abuse ring.

This dossier may identify the people who kidnapped Moira.

The dossier is said to implicate senior public figures, including senior police officers and members of the Crown Office and former Scottish Office.

These public figures are said to have abused children in Strathclyde (the Glasgow area) during the 1950s and 1960s.

The dossier is said to list vehicles and safe houses used in Glasgow, Monklands and Paisley where children were hidden before being taken to sex parties.

Strathclyde police have decided not to release the dossier.

The dossier was written by James Gallogley, a convicted child-abuser who died in Peterhead prison in 1999.

THE UK LABOUR PARTY'S STEVEN PURCELL has had his name linked to COCAINE GANGSTERS

Steven Purcell, reportedly, spent 31 December 2009, at Miami's five-star Fontainebleau hotel. (The strange and sudden fall of Labour's rising star)

On 14 March 2010, Scotland on Sunday reveals that that an 'arms-length council company' set up by Purcell 'lavished money on six-figure salaries for senior employees and on fundraising for Labour party coffers'. (Inquiry call over 'secrets' of Purcell)

Scotland on Sunday refers to Purcell's relationship with a network of councillors, businessmen and public sector bosses, with connections to the Labour party.

One of Purcell's initiatives is a council body called 'City Building'.

Its wage bill for senior employees doubled in just two years.

Reportedly, some of those who benefited were pals of Purcell.

City Building spent thousands of pounds on hospitality.

When Labour ran the Edinburgh government, the Justice Minister was Labour's Cathy Jamieson.

Cathy Jamieson was Scotland's justice minister, under a former Labour administration.

According to the Scotsman (scotsman.com/5):

"Scotland's justice minister Cathy Jamieson strongly denied helping a relative evade the law.

"While the Labour MSP transferred £100 to the bank account of nephew Derek Hyslop - who was on the run from police at the time - in July 1999, she has stated that she had no idea he was wanted by police.

"Hyslop, a drug addict who had just killed a woman in a robbery in Derby, was later jailed for manslaughter. Jamieson said the money was meant for her nephew’s baby."

Allegedly, the Labour Party in parts of Scotland is linked to gangsterism.

According to annaraccoon.com/ (Gordon Brown, Steven Purcell, & Glasgow Politics.):

"Irene Adams (Labour) MP for Paisley North piped up that her constituency committee had been infiltrated by drug dealers and gangster.

"She went on the record to name drug dealer and enforcer Stewart Boyd as the source of death threats she received whilst campaigning against drug dealing.

"Boyd was killed in an inexplicable car accident on the Marbella coast road, so ferocious that it led police to believe that Semtex had been present in one of the cars.

"The first time that Southerners really registered the goings-on in Glasgow was when Mohammed Sarwar became the first Muslim MP in the UK, standing for Glasgow Govan.

"His election was quickly followed by allegations of vote rigging and bribes...

"He is not standing in the 2010 election, but guess what? – his son Anas has been nominated as the prospective parliamentary candidate.

"That is Anas, not Athif, his other son who has recently been convicted of £850,000 worth of money laundering….

"It was not only the drug mafia and the crime mafia that we were protected from news of but the gay mafia too.

"We were told that the suicide of Gordon McMaster MP was ‘not suspicious’ and may have been because he was suffering from Gulf War Syndrome."

SCOTLAND OWNS ITS SEABED

Scotland is expected to provide around a quarter of Europe's alternative energy.

This alternative energy includes tide, wave and wind power produced in Scottish waters, supposedly owned by 'the Crown'.

Many billions of pounds will be earned, either by the people of Scotland, or by 'the Crown'.

The Crown Estate Commissioners (CEC) manage the Crown property rights in Scotland.

The CEC, in evidence to the Commons Treasury Committee, admit they do not actually own anything.

Scotland owns the Scottish seabed

According to the Commons Treasury Committee, "Crown property rights in Scotland are defined and governed by Scots law, including Scotland's Crown rights in Scotland's territorial seabed and continental shelf area.

"As a result of the Scotland Act 1998, the Scottish Parliament can legislate over the extent and nature of Crown property rights in Scotland, legislate to regulate the use of land and property rights and issue guidance on standards of good management."

Andy Wightman, a leading authority on public rights to land in Scotland, says the Scottish Parliament in Holyrood definitely can abolish the Crown rights to the seabed, in order to let Scottish ministers hold them instead.

Hollie Greig - The Big Picture


"The identities of a further seven child victims are already known.

"There is no question that the gang is well connected, efficiently organized and totally ruthless. Our frightening story is that they are protected by individuals of “high standing” within the Scottish establishment." (Justice For Hollie Greig - Child Abuse Coverup ... )
